        Roma Perturbata, ofte Beroerde Romen, vertoond door x Zinnebeelden

      1706. ANTI-CATHOLIC SATIRE. Roma Perturbata, ofte 't Beroerde Romen, vertoond door X Zinnebeelden, toegepast op de X Geboden, door die van 't Pausdom, doch voornaamelijk door de Munniken doorgaans meest overtreeden... [2] pp. Illustrated with 11 full-page numbered engraved plates. Small folio, 314 x 185 mm, bound in contemporary Dutch speckled calf, gilt-rolled ornamental frames on covers surrounding central gilt-stamped floral arabesque at center, spine with decorative ornaments in compartments. Louvain [Amsterdam?]: Groote Compagnie [Carel Allard?], 1706. |~||~||~||~||~| First issue of these richly allegorical emblem engravings criticizing the Catholic Church. Published during a crisis of succession in the Holland Mission, "Rome Perturbed, or the Catholic Church in uproar, presented in ten emblems showing how the papacy, but especially the monks, trespass against the Ten Commandments" follows a long tradition of anti-clerical satire used by Romeyn de Hooghe and others in a debate culminating in the schism between the Curia and the Dutch diocese in 1723 to form the Old Catholic Church. Petrus Codde (1648-1710) was Archbishop of Utrecht from 1695 until 1704, when he was permanently discharged from his post by Pope Clement XI following repeated accusations of Jansenism. He had been replaced in 1702 by Theodore de Cock, a former friend, after failing to defend his orthodoxy at court in Rome. Their longstanding personal rivalry inspired this series of satirical engravings, set in the context of the pervasive religious controversy. Muller identifies the anonymous artists as the Allard family of Amsterdam, who edited stock images and added cursive chronograms and rhyming passages to explain their densely packed illustrations. Engraved with fictitious publication lines, these narrative plates play on Codde's name, belittling him by using the Dutch word for droll (koddig); and vilify De Cock by their use of roosters, cockerels (coq in French), and cooks (kok in Dutch). The author is identified on the title-page by initials only, "L.V.J." for Liefhebber van Jansenius -- an anonymous "friend of Jansenius." Extremely popular at the time and now very rare, this series was almost immediately republished, with a second edition in 1707 containing two more plates. OCLC locates just five copies worldwide of this first edition, none in the U.S. (Koninklijke Bibliothek, Tresoar, Universiteit Utrecht, and two at the British Library). No copies in ABPC. Front joint cracked but holding fine. PROVENANCE: Bibliotheca Abbatiae Vallis-Dei (Abbot of Gottesthal?), with their ex-libris on front pastedown and stamp of same on front and rear endpaper verso. BM, Satires 1440. Muller, De Nederlandsche Geschiedenis in Platen 3410 (5). See Spaans, Graphic Satire and Religious Change: The Dutch Republic 1676-1707, pp. 210-240.

        Heilige Augen-und emuths-Lust

      1706. KRAUS, Johann Ulrich. Heilige Augen-und Gemüths-Lust, vorstellend alle Sonn- Fest- und Feyrtägliche nicht nur Evangelien sondern auch Epistelen und Lectionen. Two parts in one, [5] ff., letterpress title to part 2, 122 engraved plates, numbered [1], 70, [1], 71-120, engraved title vignettes. Contents: Part 1 with xylographic half-title, letterpress title, four-page preface with engraved pictorial headpiece and ornamental initial, one-page index of holidays, full-page allegorical engraving of the Church, and 70 plates; Part 2 with letterpress title, full-page engraving of the apostles and their symbols, and 50 plates, all the engravings finely coloured throughout with some gold heightening, all by a contemporary hand. The plates printed on thick card paper, interleaved. Folio, 336 x 205 mm., bound in contemporary dark brown speckled calf over boards, sides paneled with single gilt fillet, spine richly gilt with red morocco gilt lettering-piece, gilt edges. [Augsburg]: Kraus, [1706]. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition of Kraus' famous illustrated book, representing one of the high points from the Southern German Baroque period. It is a unique and splendid luxury copy with the engravings beautifully coloured in gouache and watercolour… heightened in gold on special thick card paper. Johann Ulrich Kraus (1655-1719) was one of the most successful engravers and publishers at Augsburg in the latter part of the seventeenth century. This monumental emblem book was conceived as a suite to his famous Picture Bible or Bilderbibel (1698-1700), and follows the same illustrative formula, in which the upper portion of each plate contains an illustration of a Bible scene and the lower portion an engraved circular emblem. Each plate is devoted to a different Saint's day, and each emblem is printed within an elaborate cartouche or frame, itself often incorporating small medallion vignettes or emblems. In his artistic style Kraus's ornamental engravings - represented here by the varied and imaginative emblem cartouches - were widely influential in Germany, through their use as models for cabinetmakers, woodworkers and other craftsmen. The artistic colouring of this copy adds expressive details and nuances of light, hue and shadow not supplied by the engravings themselves. It was likely executed under the artist's direction, either for presentation to a high-ranking patron or on commission for a wealthy customer. To avoid bleed-through of the colour the plates were specially printed on heavy card-like paper, making this copy nearly twice as thick as ordinary copies. With its characteristic German Baroque palette of delicate pinks and blues and rich greens, enhanced by sparingly but gorgeously applied touches of gold, the colouring transforms many of the pictorial illustrations into veritable miniature paintings. This copy appears to be unique. While a coloured copy of Kraus's Bilderbibel, also on thick paper, is recorded (cf. Tenschert catalogue XLVIII/98), we trace no other coloured copies of the present edition. In his 1933 study of the illustration of the Bilderbibel and its suites (see below), Otto Reichl made no mention of any coloured copies. Occasional minor marginal soiling or paper discoloration, small marginal repairs to 2 text leaves, plate 32 with small light stain, small tear to head of spine; else fine. Landwehr, German 390. Faber du Faur 1849. Praz, Studies in Seventeenth-Century Imagery, p. 389. Brunet III, 697 (citing Latin version only). Thieme-Becker 21:440.

        Three Years Travels from Moscow over-land to China

      1706. IDES, Evert Ysbrants. Three Years Travels from Moscow over-land to China. thro' Great Ustiga, Siriania, Permia, Sibiria, Daour, Great Tartary; &c. to Peking. Written by his Excellency E. Ysbrants Ides, Ambassador from the Czar of Muscovy to the Emperor of China. To which is Annex'd an Accurate Description of China, done Originally by a Chinese Author.

Droogenham and 30 engraved plates, of which 8 folding. 4to., 235 x 175 mm, bound in modern speckled calf darker brown morocco spine labels stamped in gilt. London: Printed for W. Freeman, J. Walthor, T. Newborough, J. Nicholson, and R. Parker, 1706. |~||~||~||~| First English edition translated from the Dutch (Amsterdam 1704). The plates are those of the Dutch edition, with the Dutch captions replaced by captions in English. The aim of the expedition which took place from 1692 to 1695 was to conclude further commercial agreements with the Chinese. "The Russian embassy had less trouble with the enormous self-esteem of the Chinese than many earlier and later embassies. Before the Tartars became masters of China, it was almost impossible for foreigners to find admittance to the Imperial Court. Kang-hi was desirous of preventing Russian encroachments upon his territories and the Czar was anxious to establish a regular commerce with China. The expedition added considerable geographical knowledge to the little that was known about Manchuria and China" (Cox). The second half of the book consists of "A Short Description of the vast Empire of China by Dionysius Kao," a Chinese doctor, who practiced in Siam and India, and who was a convert to Catholicism. A short tear nicely repaired without loss to folding map of north Asia, some browning, but overall a very good copy. Cordier 2468. Cox I, p. 331. Lust 519. Löwendahl 294.

Wells drew from the variant readings collated in the edition of John Mill in the construction of the text. While Mill's edition had included the most thorough critical apparatus up to its time, the actual text was a reprint of that of Stephanus. Wells' edition was thus the first to offer the complete Greek New Testament while moving away from the Textus Receptus and toward what is now considered the standard critical text, Nestle-Aland.Condition:Condition is Very Good.  Some wear to edges, little glue to lower front hinge, hinges holding well but would handle with care, 1717 signature Ed.

        Epitome chronologico, genealogico, & historico

      Na Officina de Antonio Pedrozo Galram, Cambridge 1706 - 16]+555 pages. Octavo (8" x 6") bound in full leather with raised bands with red labels and gilt lettering to spine. (Palau 32887) First edition. Antonio Maria Bonucci was a Jusuit priest and Antonio Vieira's secretary for the last ten years of his life. Since Bonucci was Vieira's secretary until his, Vieira's, death in 1697 and was well aware of the content of Vieira's work, it is surprising that he wrote and managed to get a book published in 1706 in which eh seemingly follows some of Vieira's ideas regarding the succession of time. When one reads the first "book" of this work, they have the impression that the content and structure are very much similar to some passages of Vieira's Clavis Prophetarum. A study of this book will provide further light on Vieira's interpretation of the succession of empires, particularly when analyzing his chapter on "how the time of the Antichrist should be understood in the Fifth empire, while Christ's empire would thus be counted as the sixth. Antonio Vieira was a Portuguese Jesuit philosopher and writer, the "prince" of Catholic pulpit-orators of his time. He accompanied his parents to the colony of Brazil, where his father had been posted as a registrar. He received his education at the Jesuit college at Bahia. In 1635 he entered the priesthood. He distinguished himself as an orator. He was one of the reformers during the inquisition and his enemies had him exiled to Coimbra. this work is a kind of universal history, one of its interest is that the dedication was written in Bahia. Condition: Recased with renewed spine and labels and end papers, corners rubbed, leather boards, scuffed and rubbed, early signature to title, minor dampstaining else a very good copy.

This lexicon/encyclopaedia offers also 'Realia', and is a repertorium of 'loci classici' and a source of numerous 'variae lectiones'. (NP 6,51/52, s.v. Iulius IV,17). 'The honour of reviving the study of Greek in the Netherlands belongs to Tiberius Hemsterhuis (1685-1766)'. (Sandys 2,447). At the age of 21 he accomplished the task of completing an edition of Pollux, a project that was abandoned by J.H. Lederlin. In 1717 he was promoted to a professorship of Greek at the university of Franeker, which was the start of the 'Schola Hemsterhusiana'. His best known pupil there was L.C. Valckenaer. In 1740 he left for Leyden 'where, for a quarter of a century he kept the flag of Greek flying in the foremost of the Dutch universities'. His most famous student in Leyden was D. Ruhnken, who wrote in 1768 a 'Elogium' on him which 'is one of the Classics in the history of scholarship'. (Sandys 2,451) The 'Schola Hemsterhusiana' is famous for the publishing of many works of ancient lexicographers. Hemsterhuis advised his students to use especially ancient lexica. These works could be of great use for the understanding of textual problems and the amending of texts of classical authors, and they were of great help to gain a profound knowledge of the Greek language and its vocabulary. (J.G. Gerretzen, Schola Hemsterhusiana, 1940, p. 100/1) (Provenance: Name on front flyleaf 'J. Berlage', Dutch schoolteacher at the Gymnasium of Gorichem at the beginning of the 20th century.

      Cambridge: Printed at the University Press, for B. Tooke..., 1706.. [4],395,[1]pp. plus folding plate. Small quarto. Modern half calf and marbled boards, raised bands, gilt label, side-panels decorated in blind. Old ink stain on top edge, occasionally creeping into the upper margin (and the upper forecorners of the first third of text), occasional light foxing, a few old ink scribbles on last leaf, otherwise a good copy, neatly bound. First edition of the first of the eminent mathematician's publications on biblical prophecies. An early proponent and friend of Newton, Whiston succeeded him as Lucasian professor of mathematics, a post he held until his unorthodox religious views and disinclination to bow to authority in his publications cost him that post in 1710. Page number 287 is misnumbered '277' and like the variant noted in ESTC, page 229 is misnumbered '220'. ESTC T116538.

      Amsterdam: Ex Officina Wetsteniana, 1706. n. Hardcover. 318 x 203 mm (12 1/2 x 8"). Two volumes. HANDSOME CONTEMPORARY AMSTERDAM PRIZE BINDINGS, elaborately and handsomely gilt, covers with two elegant floral frames incorporating the arms of Amsterdam, inner frame with oblique armorial cornerpieces, large coat of arms at center framed by foliage and surmounted by an allegorical vignette, raised bands flanked by gilt floral rolls, spine panels with gilt coat of arms, two green silk ties. Ornate engraved frontispiece and allegorical title page, one double-page engraved plate depicting an assortment of medallions. Parallel texts in Greek and Latin, with very lengthy annotations in both languages. With an engraved certificate attesting to the scholarship of Jacob Johannes Ott, signed by the Rector of the public school at Amsterdam and dated 26 March 1830. Brunet IV, 785-86. Centerpiece on front board of volume I slightly abraded, minor loss of gilt here and there on the covers and spines, otherwise IN VERY FINE CONDITION, the bindings entirely tight, virtually unworn, and almost without soiling, and the text unusually clean and fresh, with no signs of use. This attractively ornate prize binding adorns an important source of information on classical Greek culture and literature, in a bilingual edition that William Smith describes as "very valuable." The second century Greek sophist and grammarian Julius Pollux compiled this thesaurus for students, providing them with lists of the most important words and quotations on a range of topics. Organized by subject rather than alphabetically, the 10 books in the volumes cover gods, kings, commerce, manufacturing, war, and agriculture; parts of the human body; politics and interpersonal relationships; branches of knowledge and science; hunting and animals; meals and crimes; the trades; the justice system; towns, buildings, coins, and games; and various vessels. As Smith observes in "A Dictionary of Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology," "in consequence of the loss of the great number of lexicographical works from which Pollux compiled his Onomasticon, this book has become one of the greatest value for acquiring a knowledge of Greek antiquity, and explains many subjects which are known to us from no other source. It has also preserved many fragments of lost writers, and the great number of authors quoted in the work may be seen by a glance at the long list given in Fabricius (Bibl. Graec. vol. vi. p. 145, &c.)." When compared with other Dutch prize bindings of the period pictured in the British Library Database of Bookbindings, the present example is significantly more lavish and attractive than the norm in its decoration. Our binder has incorporated the arms of Amsterdam no fewer than 69 times on each of the volumes, the intricate rolls that form the cover panels are refined and elegant, and the large and elaborate device in the center of each cover is beautifully designed and impressed. A very pleasing feature--and a clear indication of how little the volume has been used--is the presence of its intact original ribbon ties.

      - Born in Nuremberg, Barbara Regina Dietzch (1706-1783) was Dietzch was the daughter of Johann Dietzsch Israel, a renowned painter, draftsman and etcher in his own right. Barbara discovered her artistic skills as a young child studying and practicing in her fathers workshop and she developed a technique of watercolor over gold leaf on vellum that had never been attempted before. Barbara had a considerable influence over many still life natural history artists of the period and her watercolors were strongly collected during her lifetime by her fellow artists. The rich, dark backgrounds of her paintings give a dimensional quality to the finely detailed forms of the botanicals and their subtle coloring. This beautiful painting of a Passion Flower, measures 20" x 17" and is in excellent condition. The rich background highlights the delicate blue-green hues of the leaves, bringing life and a realism to the flower.
