Tostlöwe (Tostleben), Christoph.
Böhlitz bei Leipzig, 1698.. 4to. Manuscript copy, dated 1712. (74), 506, (4) pp., with two contemporary woodcuts of horses, removed from an illustrated Bible, mounted on verso of final leaf. Modern brown calf with giltstamped spine label.. Remarkable, unpublished hippiatric manuscript, composed in the late 17th century by the Böhlitz blacksmith Christoph Tostlöwe (d. 1699 in Böhlitz-Gundorf mear Leipzig) and here presented in a near-contemporary copy prepared but 14 years later by an unknown hand (the initial pages of the present ms. are dated to the early months of the year 1712; the completion of the copy probably required the better part of that year). The ms. begins with a lengthy preface in which the self-confident craftsman justifies his work, demonstrates his familiarity with the Dutch physicians Cornelius Bontekoe and Steven Blankaart, and asserts his competence in the medical field. This is followed by Tostlöwe's wide-ranging treatise on the treatment of the horse, including sections on stomach ailments, enemas, gall disorders, phthisis, ailments of the eyes, as well as the proper care of the hoof, how to properly cast a horse on its side and tie it down, etc. The end is brought up by a three-page index; the final page shows two woodcuts of horses in battle and flight, removed from a contemporary illustrated Bible. - Tostlöwe was heavily influenced by the Pietist theologians Spener and Francke and was well-connected with the Leipzig Pietist movement. For his heretical views and disputatious activities he was arrested and questioned by the Merseburg consistorium in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Übersetzung, o. J. (18/19. Jh.), guter Zustand.. Handschriftliches Original-Reisepapier (Reisepass) für den Herzog Viktor Amadeus I.

Ausgestellt wurde dieser Passierschein in Chur von den hier versammelten Häuptern der 3 Bünde (Gotteshausbund, Grauer Bund, Zehngerichtebund), dem Freistaat, welcher nach 1798 zum Kanton Graubünden wurde. Die 3 schönen, am unteren Rand angebrachten Papiersiegel der Bünde verdecken teilweise die Unterschriften der verschiedenen Cancellarii (Kanzler oder Schreiber). Das in deutscher Sprache verfasste Dokument, welches laut Einleitung auf Anfrage des Botschafters Carolo Casati aus Mailand ausgestellt wurde, fordert alle auf, den Herzog und seinen Hof auf dem Weg nach "St. Maurizi in dem Obern Engadin" durchreisen zu lassen, denn "bis dahin in unseren Landen die Wasser Cur zu Pflegung der Edlen Gesundtheit zu gebrauchen, niemandem versagt worden". Sankt Moritz war spätestens seit der Beschreibung der heilsamen Kräfte der Heilquelle (eisensaures Wasser) durch Paracelsus um 1530 ein bekannter Kurort, also lange vor dem Aufkommen des Tourismus und des Wintersports.

[Mather, Cotton]:
London: Printed for J.R. and sold by Sam. Philips Bookseller at Boston in New-England. 1698.. iv,135pp. Antique half calf and contemporary marbled boards. Text uniformly tanned and foxed. Small neat repairs in the upper margin of the verso of the titlepage and the first leaf of the "To the Reader" section. Very good. One of the rarer works of Cotton Mather. In it, Mather considers the state of the Church of England in the period after the Reformation and argues for the unity of the New England churches with the Church of England. Written in 1696, the book was sent to London in the care of Mather's brother-in-law, and published there in 1698. Perhaps in light of the prominent role he played during the Salem witch trials, or fearing retribution from "Tory churchmen," Mather decided that anonymity would serve him best, and he concealed his authorship of this work. He writes in the preface "to the bookseller" that "the author of this manuscript lies concealed from you, and from all its readers, only that he may, till a fitter opportunity, preserve his teeth from some few kicking unreasonables." The publisher refers to Mather only as a "learned non- conformist" from New England. There are three variant imprints of this title, one for a bookseller in Boston (as in the present copy), one for a bookseller in Edinburgh, and one for a bookseller in London. On December 1, 1698, Mather noted in his diary, "This day, the Ship, for whose arrival I had pray'd with so much Faith, safely arrived. And by this Ship, there comes to my hand, my Eleutheria...which gives me to see, a spec … [Click Below for Full Description]

SAVONAROLA, Fra Girolamo (1452-1498).
Lisboa, na Officina de Miguel Deslandes, Impressor de S. Magestade, 1698. - 4to.; 16 hs., 259 pp. Encuadernación en piel marbreada, de la época, con lomera profusamente ornada. Una rara edición portuguesa en la que se hace referencia a una traducción española de la que ésta es la única cita conocida. [Vid. C. Calvo Rigual: «Traducciones de Savonarola en España, con noticia de algunas desconocidas», Philologia Hispalensis, 2008]. La obra aparece aquí a caballo de las polémicas imágenes históricas de Savonarola, entre la de un falso profeta apocalíptico y herético, incendiario de libros e intransigente fustigador de la moral pública, y la que por el contrario lo supone un hombre de intensa experiencia religiosa, sensible intérprete de la espiritualidad de su tiempo, lo cual evidenciaría que la reforma que intentó no provenía de intenciones políticas y seculares, sino de un apasionado amor por Cristo y de una intensa necesidad interior. Un libro complejo, a descifrar, dentro de una intrincada tradición carmelitana. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Many of the maps are frayed at the corners, affecting the margins only. Several words of text are missing from the lower right corner of the title page and dedication page. Inscription on the first fly leaf reads "Duplicate from the Library of the Earl of Leicester at Holkham Hall." Contemporary leather with large embossed gold family crest of Thomas Coke (1st Earl of Leicester), which reads "Prudens qui patiens" and features an ostrich holding a horseshoe perched on a hat. Cover re-backed and right corner re-attached.John Ogilby's "Britannia," is an innovative atlas of road maps that contextualized travel between known points within physical features of the surrounding landscape. The usefulness of this combination of features shows itself in the well-used pages of this final version of the atlas. The volume contains 100 strip maps that collectively document 2,519 miles. While the atlas does not have page numbers, the maps are numbered in the lower right corner for ease of use. The atlas is particularly notable for its large-scale format, allowing for detailed description of even small roads in the Kingdom of England. The combination of these various advances has led many scholars to regard "Britannia" as the first major development in British cartography since the early 16th century. John Ogilby (1600--1676) is often noted in the literature for his wide ranging pursuits--dancer, actor, translator, tutor, among others--that … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lead [or Leade], Jane
Amsterdam: Im Jahr, 1698. 95,[1]pp. Small octavo. 19th century paper over boards. Engraved title vignette. Some surface chipping to binding at extremities, occasional early ink annotations (including the scoring through of a name and an attribute of another name on the dedication page), occasional light early underscores, two terminal text leaves a bit creased and torn at gutter, with no loss, but a good or better copy. One of two 1698 editions in German of Lead's A MESSAGE TO THE PHILADELPHIAN SOCIETY (London, 1696). The other has a completely different setting of the title-page, with a large floral device rather than the detailed allegorical engraving that appears in this copy. Lead (1624-1704), an English mystic and visionary heavily influenced by the writings of Jacob Boehme, gathered around her a circle of like minded individuals formalized as the Philadelphia Society for the Advancement of Piety and Divine Philosophy, which flourished until the years immediately following her death in 1704. The Society oversaw the publication of her works, and fostered converts in Europe, as well as in North America. This work includes an explanation of the Society's purpose as well as its constitution. Her writings had some influence on later generations of serious religious thinkers, as well as on esoterics of various flavors and a genuine crackpot or two. Lead's original English publications tend to be quite rare -- ESTC locates only 6 copies of the London printing of this text. And although OCLC/Worldcat finds a decent number of copies of this German text held by European institu … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hennepin, Louis:
Utrecht. 1698.. [70],389pp. plus folding map and four folding plates. 12mo. Modern vellum over boards, spine stamped, all edges red. Internally clean. Near fine. First edition. This edition of Hennepin's writings is a continuation of his NOUVELLE DECOUVERTE... of the previous year. In this work he added new material drawn from contemporary sources on Indian manners and customs and various North American travels. The first eight chapters describe the adventures and murder of La Salle, while the last concern the British treatment of the Recollets after the taking of Quebec in 1629. Lengthy passages are taken from Le Clercq's ETABLISSEMENT DE LA FOY of 1688. Despite the fact that Hennepin has been severely and justly criticized for imposture and plagiarism, his works, according to Thwaites, still stand as "invaluable contributions to the sources of American history; they deserve study, and to this day furnish rare entertainment. We can pardon much to our erratic friar, when he leaves to us such monuments as these." No other narratives of French exploration in the interior of North America enjoyed as wide a popularity or stimulated as much controversy and criticism among later scholars as those of Hennepin. A Recollet missionary, Father Hennepin went to New France in 1675, and in 1678 he set out with La Salle to explore the fertile basin of the Mississippi River. While La Salle turned back to raise funds to continue the voyage, Hennepin went on to ascend the river from Fort Crevecoeur (Chicago) and penetrated farther northwest into the interior than any white man to tha … [Click Below for Full Description]

Engraved plate adjacent to title-page with six additional folding plates. The two maps are not present. This is the so-called Tonson issue with Tonson being complete on first line of publishers on the title-page. The true first edition was the Utrecht edition in French of 1697. Two books in one: (22), 243; (32), 228. Plates include views of Niagara Falls, a wild bison, La Salle's sailing vessel Le Griffon, the murther(sic) of La Salle, the cruelty of the savage Iroquois, and the taking of Quebec by the English. Plates are intact, some with browning at edges, some toning and foxing, moreso on the first two plates, a few closed tears without paper loss, . Text is generally clean with mild to moderate foxing, never heavy. According to Howes, the first plate was the first view of Niagara Falls ever made. The title continues, "Also, the manners, customs, and languages of the several native Indians, and the advantage of commerce with those different nations; with a continuation giving an account of the Sieur de la Salle upon the mines of St Barbe, &c. The taking of Quebec by the English; with the advantages of a shorter cut to China and Japan". Father Louis Hennepin (1626-1705) was a Catholic priest and missionary, who accompanied La Salle on his trip of exploration into the interior of North America beginning in 1679.

He describes well the cities of Surat and Bombay, the life and trade there as well as at Madras. Nearly sixteen years elapsed before he could be persuaded to publish the story of his wanderings. At length piqued at the frequent appearance of translations of foreign, especially French, books of travel, in which English industry and enterprise were decried, he issued a handsome folio," (Cox, 'Reference Guide To The Literature Of Travel, Vol I, p. 280). "As a surgeon in the service of the East India Company, he left England in December 1672 and arrived at Masulipatam in June 1673. He spent the following four years on the Coromandel and Malabar coasts, visiting and describing Surat, Bombay and Madras. He also travelled to Gokarna, Karwar, Goa, and ventured inland to Junnar.

[Aelfric, Abbot of Eynsham ( trans)]:
Oxoniæ [i.e. Oxford]: E Theatro Sheldoniano ... Typis Jvnianis, An. Dom 1698.. [8],168,32pp. Large octavo. Quarter modern black morocco and marbled boards, raised bands, gilt label. Engraved frontis, headpiece, and initial. Top margins very occasionally a trace dusty, otherwise a very good, crisp copy. First edition of this collection of translations into Anglo-Saxon of selections from the Old Testament and Apocrypha, edited by Edward Thwaites. The translations of the Heptateuch and Job are ascribed to Aelfric. The fine frontispiece and headpiece are the work of M. Burghers. "Thwaites's most important contribution to Anglo-Saxon studies was his 1698 edition of hitherto unedited parts of the Old Testament in Old English, including Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, and the book of Job, together with the apocryphal Judith and the Gospel of Nicodemus. ... Although some of his contemporaries criticized Thwaites's edition — partly because it included apocryphal material, partly for its lack of a Latin translation and notes — it was for its time a ground- breaking enterprise and one that was not repeated until 1922, when S. J. Crawford edited the Heptateuch afresh, using a different base manuscript. Thwaites's edition had been based on Bodleian MS Laud misc. 509, and his text was reprinted, with some emendations, by C. W. M. Grein in 1872. Thwaites dedicated his edition to George Hickes, at that time still proscribed as a nonjuror, and this caused some political embarrassment to the vice-chancellor, who threatened to suppress t … [Click Below for Full Description]
