         Histoire generale, des isles des Christophe, de la Guadeloupe, de la Martinique, et autres dans l'Amerique. [?]

      Jacques Langlois et Emmanuel Langlois, Paris 1654 - First edition. Complete, with the three folding maps. With several woodcut head and tailpieces, and initials. In somewhat later leather. The gilt spine is with five raised bands and red title vignette. Front and rear panels ruled with gilt double-line at the edges. With marbled endpapers. Marbled edges. (16), 481, (11) p. and 3 folding plates of engraved maps. The first French account on the Caribbean, a complete copy with the three folding maps, among them the oldest map of Saint Christopher Island. The first French book on the French Antilles, written by Jean Baptiste Du Tertre, "born in Calais in 1610, Du Tertre served in the Dutch army and navy before being ordained as a Dominican in 1635" (Garraway, 2005). He "arrived in Guadeloupe in 1640 and remained for seven years, ultimately becoming the superior of the colony's Dominican mission. A decade later (1656-57) he returned for a shorter, second visit. His first account of his experiences and of the French settlements in the Antilles was published in 1654 under the title Histoire generale, des isles des Christophe, de la Guadeloupe, de la Martinique (General History of the Islands of St. Christophe, Guadeloupe, and Martinique). A revised and expanded version of this work, titled General History of the Antilles, was published in 1667- 71" (Dobie, 2010). According to Rich, Du Tertre was forced to publish the original 1654 edition before the work was complete: "The first edition of Father Du Tertre's History of the Antilles, or rather the project of that work, which the Rev. Father was obliged to put to press in haste, because he understood that some other person was about printing it under some other name, thereby depriving him of the credit of it." The book is illustrated with three maps of the islands of Guadeloupe, Martinique and of Saint Christopher which is the first map of the island ever printed (Dunn, 1972).

         Travells of Mr. Robt. Bargrave youngest son to Dr. Isaac Bargrave Dean of Canterbury?

      1654 - Manuscript in ink on paper. 2 vols. Margins ruled in red throughout. Small 4to. Rebound in cloth (c.1900), rubbed and rebacked, most of the page-numerals cropped. Early eighteenth century The manuscript comprises Robert Bargrave?s narratives of his travels to the Mediterranean in the years 1647 to 1655. The first volume begins with his journey from England to Constantinople in the entourage of the new ambassador, Sir Thomas Bendish, describing his outward sea voyage, via Gibraltar, Majorca, Siena and Florence, and his subsequent residence and experiences as a merchant in Turkey (1647?52) (139 pages). This is followed by an account of his arduous return overland via Bulgaria, Romania, Poland, Germany and the Low Countries, ?A Narration of the Journey from Constantinople to Dunkirk overland; made by Mr. James Modyford, Mr. Rich: Nevett and Mr. Robt. Bargrave? (1652?53) (108 pages). The next volume contains his third journey, made for both cultural and commercial reasons, which took him by sea to Spain, where he visited Barcelona, Zaragoza, Madrid, taking in El Escorial and El Retiro, and then on to Venice, Padua and the Morea, ?A Description of my Voyage into the Streights [of Gibraltar] began in Anno 1654; & of my Land Journeys accruing thereon? (196 pages). The concluding fourth narrative describes his return to England from Venice, via Trento, Innsbruck and Augsburg, including a visit to Heidelberg and the exiled English royalist community at the court of Elizabeth of Bohemia, ?An Account of my Journey from Venice overland to England by way of Germany Anno: 1655? (57 pages). Bargrave probably composed his diary of his travels after his return to England in 1656 and before autumn 1660, when he departed again for Constantinople, this time with Bendish?s successor as ambassador, Heneage Finch, earl of Winchelsea (this proved to be Bargrave?s final journey, as he died of fever at Smyrna early in 1661 without reaching his destination). ?Presumably, he was partly motivated by an impulse common to most writers of travel diaries to record, both for private recollection and the curiosity of family and friends, his personal experiences of the foreign, the unusual and the historically momentous . . . [but Bargrave] was reluctant ?to duplicate what was common knowledge? Hence, an insistence upon the validity of his own personal experiences and perspectives is maintained with considerable determination throughout the diary. [It] not only records an interesting (and often historically significant) itinerary of foreign travels but also documents the cultural and commercial maturing of an intelligent and sharply observant young man. In this sense it provides a more acutely subjective record of travels than many such diaries of the period, in which a heavy reliance upon secondary sources provided the guiding principles of composition. For Bargrave apparently trivial details (such as his disputes with Modyford, his activities as a private tourist, and his asides on the civil dissent back home in England) were no less important than his richly informative observations on more obviously important matters (such as the diplomatic procedures of the courts of Sultan ?Crazy? Ibrahim and Mehmet IV or his description of the palace of El Retiro). Inevitably, Bargrave?s written style, especially in his account of the first voyage, evokes a sense of a young, self-conscious writer, striving to put together a lively and vivid delineation of his personal experiences . . . . But, in general, Bargrave adopts a form of writing in keeping with one who wished to preserve a factual and clearly written record of his personal experiences in Turkey and Western Europe, primarily for their historical and geographical significance? (Brennan, pp. 39?42). Bargrave?s travels are known principally from a manuscript in his own hand, at Oxford in the Bodleian Library, MS Rawlinson C 799. This left family ownership at some point after Robert Bargrave?s death and was obtained b [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Soon Van Keulen struck a deal with cartographer Claes Jansz. Vooght.

         Instancia que faz o cerimonial dos bispos, as opiniões, que o Lecenciado Christovão Martinez, fundado nas rubricas do Missal Romano, traz no seu opusculo de Ritibus Sacris .

      Lisbon, Domingos Lopes Rosa, 1654. - 4°, recent full burgundy morocco, plain spine with raised bands in five compartments, marbled endleaves. Woodcut initials. Upper margin trimmed close, but without touching text and without any loss. Clean and crisp. Overall in very good condition. (3, 1 blank, 28 ll.). Leaf A2 incorrectly signed A3; D4 incorrectly signed D2. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. Deals with recent papal reforms of the Roman Missal and the ceremonies performed by bishops, countering Christovão Martins' De ritibus sacris dubia selecta in rubricas Missalis Romani Sanctissimi Domini nostri Urbani VIII authoritate recogniti, Lisbon 1652. Since one of the points of dispute involved proper handling of the sacrament, this was a delicate matter. Macedo cites a wide range of authorities in support of his position.Campello de Macedo (d. 1666), treasurer of the royal chapel, published several works on ecclesiastical ceremonies; his magnum opus, Thesouro de ceremonias, Lisbon, 1657, went through six editions by 1734.

         De Capitis, Cerebri, et Sensuum Externorum Morbis et Symptomatibus, Danielis Sennerti D.. Ab Authore Tertiùm recensitus.

      Practicae Medicinae, Lib. I+II. - Wittenberg, Mevius (u.a.) 1654, 4, (32), 970, (48) pp. angeb.: De Oris, Colli, ac Thoracis, Morbis et Symptomatibus (1656, (16), 434, () pp., feiner Pergamenteinband der Zeit. Daniel Sennert (1572-1637) was a German physician and academic, professor of medicine at the University of Wittenberg for many years. He is now remembered mostly for his speculative support for the atomic theory, in chemistry. Since the times of Hippocrates, physicians had been talking about "convulsions," particularly with reference to children, without clearly defining the meaning of the term and its relation to epilepsy. From the end of the fifteenth century on, when pediatric literature increased considerably, special attention was paid to epilepsy in infancy, and some attempts were made to draw the line between convulsions and epilepsy in children- Sennert for example, believed that in the former the 'materia peccans' aggregated around the spinal cord and the origins of the muscles, and that, therefore, the general commotion was slighter and disturbance of psychic functions absent. But, on the whole, such attempts remained without consequence. Physician had long known that convulsions in early childhood hat a different prognostic significance from epileptic seizures of older persons (p.193). Vapors reaching the brain would therefore account for both epilepsy from the uterus and hysteria resulting in epileptic convulsions ... (p.194) De Epilepsia (pp.589-650) - O.

         De systemate orbis cometici de que admirandis coeli characteribus, opuscula duo, in quorum primo cometarum causae disquiruuntur, & explicantur. In secondo vero quid, quales quotue sint stellae luminosae; nebulosae; necnon, & occultae, manifestantur, & rerem caelestium studiosis commendantur .

      Palermo, Nicolai Bua, 1654 - 2 parts in one vol, 4to (210 x 150 mm), pp [viii] 102 [2, blank]; [iv] 60 [8, including terminal blank], with 39 white-on-black woodcuts in text (12 full-page, 14 half-page, and 13 quarter-page); a few minor spots, ownership inscription on title crossed out but legible (see below), a very clean, crisp copy in contemporary limp vellum.First edition of this exceptionally rare and remarkable book on nebulae, the first of its kind, illustrated with striking white-on-black woodcuts. It is also a work of profound cosmological speculation which places it at the forefront of astronomical thought in the seventeenth century. Odierna suggests in this work that all nebulae are composed of stars or stellar matter and that the centre of the Universe may lie far outside the solar system.Odierna was a Sicilian priest and disciple of Galileo; the latter had presented him with a telescope of moderate focal length. Inspired by Galileo's Sidereus nuncius, he began a systematic investigation of nebular objects, the first of its kind. This study had not been pursued by other astronomers for various reasons, among them the emphasis on cataloguing fixed stars, the inadequacies of early telescopes for viewing objects of lower surface brightness, and finally because the 'systematic observations of nebulae would have inevitably called for a cosmological theory on "the construction of the heavens", a theory with which the seventeenth century, still laboriously digesting the Copernican revolution intensified by the debate on the teachings of Galileo, could hardy cope' (Serio et al. op. cit.).The first part of the book is devoted to comets, and was written by Odierna specifically to distinguish them from nebulae. 'Hodierna regarded comets as heavenly bodies very different from nebulae: besides their kinematical differences - comets have a rapid motion while nebulae have none - he thought that there was a more profound difference, the comets being made out of terrestrial substance, the nebulae being made out of stars and consequently, according to him, out of Lux Primogenita' (ibid.).The second part of the work is devoted to nebulae. He records 'some forty-three nebulous objects of which nineteen have been shown to be true nebulae or star clusters, nine can be recognised as evident asterisms, while the remaining fifteen evade identification at the present time. Of the nineteen "true" nebulae, eleven (or twelve if we include the possible NGC 2451) were original discoveries. (He was unaware that the Andromeda Nebula and the cluster in Vulpecula, Cr 399, had been previously catalogued by Al-Sufi.). It is a truly remarkable total, especially when one considers that in this same half-century following the invention of the telescope, the rest of the astronomical community discovered precisely one new object (M42, by Pieresc)' ('Some notes on Hodierna's Nebulae', Journal for the History of Astronomy xvii (1986) p 188).Odierna's 'daring cosmological conceptions. [appear] to be the true reason for the book. Odierna hypothesised that all nebulae could be ultimately resolved into stars. The fourth section of the book is devoted to a cosmological discussion about the construction of the starry sky, central to which is what Odierna calls an "irrefutable axiom":"The stars created with this world, which shine similarly to the Sun in their immense distances, were not located all at the same distance from the Earth but they were distributed by the almighty Creator in various and multiple intervals of of the sensible world, in the same way that the planets were set in motion around the Sun along different orbits"As a consequence of this axiom stars can appear of different magnitudes both because of their intrinsic differences and because of their different distances. This leads Odierna to put forward the following astonishing speculation:"How does it happen that the stars appear scattered in the aether, so that no harmony can be seen in their order, that larger ones are seen
