      Printed and Sold by Joseph Downing 1708 - B003TVLZ5Q 1708 first edition 'Printed and sold by Joseph Downing in Bartholomew-Close near West-Smithfield' (London), 4 3/4 x 7 1/4 inches tall orange cloth over leather spine, gilt lettering and ruling to spine, xlii, 300, [4] pp. Covers somewhat rubbed, especially to tips.

A translation, according to the subtitle of this work, 'from the High Dutch,' apparently by Anton Wilhelm Bohme (1673-1722), a German Lutheran royal chaplain at St. James's Palace in London known as an author and translator. A copy was said to have been in the library of English poet John Byrom (1692-1763), for whom Tauler was influential (Ward, Sacred Poems of John Byrom, Chetham Society 1895, p.383). A handsome copy of this rare translation. ~LR1~ Johannes Tauler (circa 1300-1361) was a German mystic, a Catholic preacher and a theologian. A disciple of Meister Eckhart, he belonged to the Dominican order. Tauler was known as one of the most important members of the Rhineland Mystics. He promoted a certain neo-platonist dimension in the Dominican spirituality of his time. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Medicina mentis, sive artis inveniendi praecepta generalia. Editio nova, auctior & correctior, cum praefatione autoris [and] Medicina corporis, seu cognitationes admodum probabiles de conservanda sanitate. Leipzig: Thomas Fritsch, 1695 [bound with] Gründliche Anleitung zu nützlichen Wissenschafften absonderlich Zu der Mathesi und Physica. Wie sie anitzo von den Gelehrtesten abgehandelt werden. Andere Auflage vermehret und verbessert. Frankfurt und Leipzig: Hieron, Philipp Ritschel, 1708.

      - Second editions of the two main works by the early Enlightenment mathematician, scientist and philosopher E.W. von Tschirnhaus (1651-1708), first published in Amsterdam in 1686 and 1687. Bound in is a pedagogical work by him in German that first appeared in Halle in 1700. Tschirnhaus had studied medicine at Leiden, and been introduced to Spinoza and his circle in The Hague nearby. He also met Huygens, Newton and Leibniz, and maintained a life-long correspondence with them. 'Like his mentor Spinoza, his friend Leibniz and his student Wolff, he used logic and observation in the determination of truth, and like them, was opposed by fundamentalists for doing so. His first book, Medicina Corporis, is a treatise on health. He had studied in Holland, the freest place on earth at the time, and it showed. Exposure to tolerant Dutch culture, secular Cartesianism and pantheist Spinozism shaped his positive appraisal of embodiment. The earthy tract was a success; it also appeared in a German version and was reprinted twice. The sequel, his main work, is the Medicina Mentis, which begins with an expression of joy over the order of nature - a joy intensified by considering that the mind can access truth. But, he argues, really to access it, and becoming a real philosopher (realis philosophus), requires an art of discovery (ars invenienda) modelled on mathematics (pp. xii-xiv). It is this art that is the first philosophy' (Dictionary of Eighteenth-Century German Philosophers). 3 works in one volume, 4to, [xxviii], 296, [iv], 64, 40 pp., 58 figs within the first text, contemporary vellum, edges red, occasional spotting, small light marginal waterstain in places, a few old pencil reading marks, very well-preserved copies.

With a discourse of the possibility of a passage thither. II. That 'tis probable our earth is one of the planets. III. Mercury: or, The secret and swift messenger.

An abstract of his essay towards a real character, and a philosophical language. To which is prefix'd the author's life, and an account of his works. FIRST COLLECTED EDITION, 1708. 8vo, 200 x 120 mm, 7¾ x 4¾ inches, portrait frontispiece, plus engraved frontispiece to Part I showing Copernicus and Galileo and a diagram of the heavens, woodcut diagrams and illustrations in the text, pages viii, [6], 274; [10], 90; [8], 184, bound in full antique calf, gilt ruled border to covers, rebacked to style with raised bands, gilt rules and gilt lettered morocco label. Covers worn, corners slightly worn, 1 slightly bumped, lacks free endpapers, front pastedown slightly damaged, tiny repair to reverse of lower edge of frontispiece, 3 small ink marks in upper margin, early name and date to upper margin of title page, occasional very light foxing and very light browning, tip of 1 lower corner missing, tiny hole in 1 inner margin, a couple of ink spots to 1 page, no loss of text, 1 small ink note at the end of 1 chapter, pale damp stain to inner edges of pages 155 to the end. Binding tight and firm. A good sound copy. The book is in five parts, all originally published between 1638 and 1668 , Parts I - IV each with a separate title page dated 1707. Parts I and II bear the edition statement: 'The fifth impression'; Part III is the third edition, with separate pagination; Part IV is the fifth edition and has continuous pagination with Part V. The register is continuous. John Wilkins (1614 - 1672) theologian and natural philosopher, Bishop of Chester from 1668 until his death, chaired the founding meeting of the Royal Society and was its first secretary. He was the only person to have been head of a college in both Cambridge and Oxford. He was Master of Trinity College, Cambridge but was deposed at the Restoration in 1660: he had married Oliver Cromwell's sister, and this did not endear him to returning royalty. He had previously been Warden of Wadham College, Oxford. He is of great interest to cryptographers because of the book called 'Mercury, or the Secret and Swift Messenger' (1641 and here Part III), which is described as 'the first book in English on cryptography'. Part V is an abstract of his most important work An Essay Towards a Real Character in which he attempts to invent a universal language to permit more precise communication. He discusses the origin of language and letterforms, as well as the theory of grammar and phonetics. He classifies words by their meanings and assigns each class a set of typographical characters, thus creating a rationally ordered language and symbolisation. Sotheby's Library of the Earls of Macclesfield, Part 6, No. 2128; Sotherans, Bibliotheca Chemico - Mathematica, Volume II, page 783, 15553.

Its title was Storia do Mogor and it was written partly in Italian, partly in French, and partly in Portuguese. Historians have long bewailed its disappearance, for hitherto they have been unable to check the statesments of Catrou. Manucci practically spent his life in India and witnessed so many things and records them so fully and delightfully that he is almost second to none as an historian of Aurangzib's reign' (Cox I, p.285).

        Theoria Lunæ, Euis Motum Per Eccentricvm et Epicyclvm Demonstrans [Representation of the Moon showing its motion in an eccentric orbit with epicycles]

      Amsterdam: Gerardum Valk and Petrum Schenk, 1708. Amsterdam: Gerardum Valk and Petrum Schenk, 1708 Hand-colored copper plate engraving on laid paper, 19.75 x 24.25 inches. Engraved by Johannes van Loon. Plate 18 from Harmonia macrocosmica : sev Atlas universalis et novus, totius universi creati cosmographiam generalem, et novam exhibens (Amsterdam: Gerardum Valk and Petrum Schenk, 1708). Image depicts a centered circular celestial map that shows the eccentric motions and apparent directions of the moon according to the Ptolemaic geometric model of epicycles, with eight circular figures depicting the eight stages of the moon's orbit and illustrating how the moon appears to look during those various stages, circular border divides the map along the lines of the twelve Zodiac houses and includes astrological symbols as well as an illustration to represent each, with the engraver's printed signature to the center of the bottom edge of the circular border; surrounding the center map is a decorative border, with two pictorial banners, each held up by two cherub heads to either side of the map that together spell the plate's title, ten additional cherub figures lounging among the clouds around the center map, two slightly larger cherub figures to the bottom corners, each holding cartographical instruments over miniature circular celestial maps: at the bottom left, the circular map depicts the moons apogee and perigee while the moon is in its "full" and "new" states, and, at the bottom right, the circular map depicts the moon during its waxing and waning periods, specifically in the first and third quarters; decorative border is surrounded by a simpler, ruled border with the publisher's information in the center of the largest rule and the page number 18 in the right corner. About fine, with a hint of toning where the plates had been adhered together, some light soiling to the page borders outside of the printed image, scattered light soiling to the verso, otherwise clean with a few hints of light rippling, else fine. Andreas Cellarius (1596-1665) was a Dutch-German cartographer, best known for his star atlas Harmonia Macrocosmica (first published in Amsterdam in 1660 by Johannes Janssonius), the only Dutch celestial atlas published before the 19th century and the mark of the apex of artistic celestial cartography. The first edition included an extensive descriptive Latin text along with 29 copper plate engravings of celestial cartography. Plates 1-21 depict the cosmological theories of Nicolaus Copernicus, Claudius Ptolemy, and Tycho Brahe, which describe the different trajectories and motions of the sun, moon, and planets. Plates 22-29 depict the allocations of constellations from various viewpoints. Each plate is ornately decorated with border illustrations, cherubs, astronomers, and instruments of cartography and astronomy, among other decorations. The last 8 plates depicting the constellations are the most elaborately decorated. The first printing of Harmonia Macrosmica was intended to be the first volume of a two volume set, but the second volume was never produced. Instead, in 1708, Gerardum Valk and Petrum Schenk published the second edition of Harmonia Macrosmica, which included all 29 of the Baroque-style double plates without the original Latin text. Harmonia Macrosmica marked a high point in celestial atlases, and Valk and Schenk's second edition is renowned for the tremendous artistic achievement of its illustrated cartographical plates. While many different engravers created the plates that produced these beautiful maps, only a handful signed their work, including Johannes van Loon who incised Plate 18. Copper plate engravings are a form of the intaglio printing technique, recognizable by their characteristic fine, tapered lines. These engravings are created by incising a design or illustration into a copper plate with a sharp hand tool known as a burin. When the image is printed, the incised lines on the copper plate hold the ink, meaning that the deeper incisions create darker printed images. Copper plates are the t. Illus. by Loon, Johannes Van. 19.75 x 24.25 Inches. Copper Plate Engraving. Near Fine.

      A Cologne, chez Jean Lamoureux, 1709. [titre particulier pour l'Histoire amoureuse des Gaules à l'adresse suivante : A Cologne, chez Pierre Marteau, 1708]. - Les Amours des Dames illustres de France et l'Histoire amoureuse des Gaules de Bussy-Rabutin (1708-1709). Belle édition ancienne illustrée du plus célèbre des romans satyrico-historiques du Grand Siècle. Les amours de la cour de Louis XIV au grand jour. Roger de RABUTIN, comte de BUSSY, dit BUSSY-RABUTIN AMOURS DES DAMES ILLUSTRES DE NOTRE SIÈCLE [AMOURS DES DAMES ILLUSTRES DE FRANCE.] HISTOIRE AMOUREUSE DES GAULES, PAR LE COMTE DE BUSSY RABUTIN. A Cologne, chez Jean Lamoureux, 1709. [titre particulier pour l'Histoire amoureuse des Gaules à l'adresse suivante : A Cologne, chez Pierre Marteau, 1708]. 1 fort volume petit in-12 (13,5 x 8 cm - Hauteur des marges : 131 mm) de 1 très joli frontispice gravé à l'eau-forte et représentant un angelot cupidon devant des jardins où évolue la cour de Louis XIV (ce frontispice est daté "à Cologne 1681"), 1 titre particulier pour les Amours des dames illustres de France (Cologne, Jean Lamoureux, 1709), 3 feuillets non chiffrés d'épître au lecteur, 1 feuillet de titre particulier pour l'Histoire amoureuse des Gaules (Cologne, Pierre Marteau, 1708), l'Histoire amoureuse des Gaules commence au feuillet paginé 1 et s'achève au feuillet paginé 250, la pagination reprend ensuite à 253 et se poursuit jusqu'au dernier feuillet paginé 696. (voir ci-après le détail des différents écrits contenus dans ce volume). Le volume est bien complet des 8 gravures hors-texte. Reliure plein veau brun, dos à nerfs richement orné (reliure de l'époque). Quelques usures et accrocs à la reliure (coins, coiffes, mors en partie usés). Intérieur frais. NOUVELLE ÉDITION. Ce volume contient les romans historico-satiriques suivants : Histoire amoureuse des Gaules (avec le Cantique Que Deodatus est heureux. (pp. 150-152), les Maximes d'Amour et la Lettre au Duc de Saint-Aignan) ; Le Palais Royal, ou les amours de Madame de La Valière ; Histoire de l’amour feinte du roi pour Madame ; La Princesse, ou les amours de Madame ; Le Perroquet, ou les amours de Mademoiselle ; Junonie, ou les amours de Madame de Bagneux ; Les fausses prudes, ou les amours de Madame de Brancas et autres dames de la cour ; La déroute et l’adieu des filles de joie, de la ville et des faubourgs de Paris ; Le Passe-temps Royal ou les amours de Mademoiselle de Fontange ; Les amours de Madame de Maintenon sur de nouveaux mémoires très-curieux ; Les amours de Monseigneur le Dauphin avec la comtesse du Rourre. Le volume ne contient pas "Alosie, ou les amours de M.T.P." (Madame de Montespan). Il s'y trouve parfois. Nous avons pu remarquer que l'exemplaire décrit ici est un montage car on a masqué au bas de la page 250 la signature "ALO-" qui indique que ce roman devrait se trouver à la suite de l'Histoire amoureuse des Gaules. Aussi nous avons remarqué que le dernier feuillet non chiffré de l'épître au lecteur porte la signature "TA-" qui indique une table des matières comme j'ai pu le constater dans d'autres exemplaires. Dans d'autres exemplaires que j'ai pu collationner, c'est l'Histoire amoureuse qui manque. Les différentes pièces à pagination séparées publiées en Hollande ou à Bruxelles chez Foppens ont dû être reliées ou non en fonction de leur disponibilité. Celui-ci est des plus complets, excepté Alosie qui ne s'y trouve pas. Ce recueil a paru pour la première fois à la même adresse en 1680 avec le même frontispice gravé (toujours daté 1681). Il existe des éditions sous ce même titre en 1682, 1685, 1690, 1691, 1694, 1700, 1703, 1708, 1709, 1717, 1728, (1737) et 1740, ce qui prouve assez combien cet ouvrage a été recherché de son temps et même bien après.

His annotated edition of the Institutes was first published in 1698 and went through five editions, the last in 1726. The annotations, all of them footnotes, are extensive.

(Einband minimal berieben, erste 5 Blatt hinterlegt und neu im Buchblock befestigt, fingerfleckig, wenig stockfleckig, kleine Randläsuren, teils restaurierte Einrisse, zwei Textblätter hinterlegt, 4 Blatt mit durchgehendem Fleck, die letzen 6 Blatt mit stärkeren Randläsuren und Braunfärbung, daher mit transparentem Japanpapier ganzseitig laminiert. Alle Mängel ohne Bild- oder Textverlust) - Andrea Pozzo (auch: Puteus bzw. Pozzi; Trient 1642 - 1709 Wien) war Maler und Architekt, er gehörte als Laienbruder dem Jesuitenorden an, für den er als Freskenmaler und Architekt zahlreiche Kirchen gestaltete. Für die Ordenskirche S. Ignazio in Rom, die keine Kuppel erhalten durfte, malte er 1684 in die Vierung erstmals eine "Scheinkuppel". Diese Trompe-l'oeil-Architektur hat Pozzo berühmt gemacht. Das vorliegende Werk erschien zuerst 1693 in Italien und wurde bald in andere Sprachen übersetzt, es ist eine Einführung in die perspektivische Architekturmalerei mit Erläuterungen ihrer geometrischen Voraussetzungen. Die Tafeln am Ende des ersten Bandes können als Anleitung zum Malen einer Scheinkuppel verstanden werden. Nach der Tafel 52 findet sich ein ungezählter Stich "Die Bau-Kunst-Ordnungen, wie sie aus dem Palladio und Scamozzio genommen sind" mit den entsprechenden Säulenordnungen. Unser Band zeigt deutliche Gebrauchsspuren, aber keine Anstreichungen oder Marginalien, und wird wohl in einer Malerwerkstatt oder Bauhütte benutzt worden sein. Die Schäden wurden fachmännisch und unter größtmöglicher Erhaltung des Originals restauriert, der Band geschmackvoll neu eingebunden. - Neue Deutsche Biographie.

        Northern Constellations of Classical Antiquity] Haemisphaerium Stellatum Boreale Antiquum

      - Amsterdam: G. Valk & P. Schenk, 1708. Copper-engraved celestial map, with full original colour. Unframed. 20 1/4 x 21 3/4 inches. One of the finest and most highly decorative celestial charts ever produced, from the Valk & Schenk edition of Cellarius The Classical constellations of the Northern Hemisphere. This composition, of great artistic élan, presents a view of the constellations. It is from the Harmonia Macrocosmica seu Atlas Universalis et Novus (Harmonious Universe or New and Universal Atlas) by Andreas Cellarius, the finest celestial atlas ever produced. According to Classical astronomy, championed by Aristotle and Ptolemy, the stars were mounted on a huge, transparent crystal sphere that was part of a geocentric system, in which all of the stars and planets revolved around the Earth. The present image was originally engraved in 1660 by Jan Janssonius, during the greatest era of Dutch map-making, a period that saw the perfection of the art of representing scientific ideas in a graphic form using engravings. It was reprinted by Janssonius in 1661, and again in 1708 by Gerard Valk and Petrus Schenk, who added their names to the plates. Andreas Cellarius was born in about 1596 in Neuhausen, a small town near Worms in the Rhine-Hesse region of Germany. From 1625 to 1637 Cellarius worked as a schoolmaster in Amsterdam and The Hague, and in 1637 moved to Hoorn, where he was appointed as headmaster or rector of the Latin School. He published a number of works during his lifetime, but the last and greatest was the Harmonia Macrocosmica. Cellarius resigned from his post as headmaster in early 1665 and died in Hoorn in November of the same year. Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici, Cel. 3

Nice condition. Volume 1 second edition, volumes 2-7 first edition. Printed titles in red and black with engraved vignettes, and 283 plates (many large folding) including 100 maps, also views, natural history subjects, elaborate genealogical tables, 4 printed tables in volume 7. Sabin (America), 29141; Koeman II, pp. 33-38 A nice example of this encyclopaedic historical atlas. This atlas was intended for the general public, fascinated in the early eighteenth century by the recently conquered colonies and the new discoveries. Distant countries, such as the Americas, Africa, the Middle East, Mongolia, China, Japan, Indonesia, etc., take an important place in this work. Other sections deal with the history of the european countries, genealogy and heraldry. Volume 6 relates mostly to the Americas and contains a fine dark copy (bound in two large sheets, joined) of the Carte très curieuse de la Mer du Sud, depicting the history of discovery in the western hemisphere from the time of Columbus to the French explorations in North America in the late seventeenth century. In addition to the maps, many of which are based on Guillaume de l'Isle, the plates are after the best travel accounts of the period, such as those of Dapper, Chardin, de Bruyn, Le Hay and other. The atlas was published by L'Honoré & Châtelain in seven volumes in various editions from 1705 to 1739. It was compiled by Mr. C*** (anon.) with 'Dissertations', i.e. compositions of text, maps, plates and chronological and genealogical tables by Mr. Gueudeville, except volume VII where this task was taken over by H.P. Limiers. In each volume, the maps, plates and tables are numbered consecutively. In this set, the volumes are dated 1: 1713; 2 & 3: 1708; 4: 1714; 5 & 6: 1719; 7: 1720. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

An der Realität des Hexenwesens zweifelt Reinkingk zwar ebenso wenig wie seine Zeitgenossen. Aber er macht geltend, daß die Aussagen der Beschuldiger über die Zusammenkünfte meistens auf Täuschungen und Lügen beruhen (...), den Angaben der Hexen nicht leichtfertig Glauben geschenkt werden dürfe, und kommt zu dem Resultat, daß im vorliegenden Falle die Klage wohl begründet sei" (Stinzing-L.). - Vorsatz und Titel mit kl.
