        Poems...With Additions, never before Printed

      [London]: [s.n.], Printed in the Year, 1654 Two parts in one volume. [4], 107, [4], [2], 12pp. With engraved frontispiece portrait. Nineteenth-century tan morocco, spine richly gilt, with diamond lozenge ruling to boards, in the style of Charles Lewis. Unidentified monogram bookplate to FEP. Rubbed, with chipping at head and foot of spine, crack to upper joint (but with board holding firmly). Occasional shaving, without loss of sense, paper adhesion to blank-fly leaf, else a crisp and clean copy. John Cleveland (bap. 1613, d. 1658), English metaphysical poet and royalist. Educated at Cambridge, Cleveland was elected as the Hebblethwaite Fellow of St. John's College in 1634; with somewhat of a reputation as an orator and writer, his responsibilities included addressing important visitors and corresponding with establishment figures. An ardent royalist, Cleveland departed from Cambridge in the early 1640s (and was ejected from his college positions in 1645), moving to Oxford and proximity to the Royalist court, and taking the office of Judge Advocate at Newark in 1646. It is for the political satires he composed during the English Civil Wars that Cleveland is chiefly remembered; notably The Character of a London-Diurnall (London?, 1644), which includes amongst an attack on the prevalence of Civil War newsbooks a sketch on Cromwell, and The Rebell Scot, a withering attack on Scots ('Sure England hath the Hemeroids, and these On the North posture of the patience sieze, Like Leeches, thus they physically thirst After our bloud'), Scottish character ('like witches') and Scotland itself ('such a wildernesse', which reserves applause for James Graham, marquess of Montrose, and the King. This tenth edition, although reset from the ninth of 1653, contains the same poems. Wing C4690, C4657.. Tenth edition. 8vo.

        Parte septentrional do Reyno de Portugal

      Artist: Sanson Guillaume (d) ; issued in: Paris; date: (d)1654 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 41 x 53; - description: Map shows the northern part of Portugal until Lissabon; - vita of the artist: Nicolas Sanson (1600?1667) was a French cartographer, termed by some the creator of French geography, in which he's been called the father of French cartography.Active from 1627, Sanson issued his first map of importance, the "Postes de France", which was published by Melchior Tavernier in 1632. After publishing several general atlases himself he became the associate of Pierre Mariette, a publisher of prints.In 1647 Sanson accused the Jesuit Philippe Labbe of plagiarizing him in his Pharus Galliae Antiquae; in 1648 he lost his eldest son Nicolas, killed during the Fronde. Among the friends of his later years was the great Condé. He died in Paris on 7 July 1667. Two younger sons, Adrien (d. 1708) and Guillaume (d. 1703), succeeded him as geographers to the king.In 1692 Hubert Jaillot collected Sanson's maps in an Atlas nouveau. See also the 18th century editions of some of Sanson's works on Delamarche under the titles of Atlas de géographie ancienne and Atlas britannique; and the Catalogue des cartes et livres de géographie de Sanson (1702).

Den sproglige Iklædning værdsattes højt af en Tid, der mere end Nutiden var fortrolig med Latinen."

        MYSTERIUM MAGNUM Or An Exposition of the First Book of Moses called Genesis. Concerning the Manifestation or Revelation of the Divine World through the Three Principles of the Divine Essence. . .

      Printed by M. Simmons for H. Blunden, London 1654 - Large 4to in three distinct parts each containing their own title page "Mysterium Magnum", "The Life of Jacob Behmen" and "Four Tables of Divine Revelation", with "table" or index at rear. Bound in a loosely stitched felt cover over unknown boards, with attached but "floating" carved oak poly chromed board depicting four characters possibly; Saint George, Mary, Joseph w/Jesus and an Angel. First two quires bound at angle to rest of volume with some paper added to the gutter. Occasional mark, light toning at times but a good copy. Jakob Bohme [Behm,Behmen,Boehme] was a German Shoemaker who some call the Father of German Philosophy. Bohme grew up dissatisfied with the world around him, and recognized that the organized Church was little help to the common man. As a young man he is said to have had visions in which mans relation with God and his place in the world became clear. His first group of writings "Aurora" were copied at first without his knowledge, then by friends who requested it. In it he equates human traits with the known seven planets. In Mysterium Magnum [Great Mystery], Bohme shows and explains the many allegorical lessons contained in Genesis; originally written in a loose mixture of High Dutch/German and Latin. The book's observations are written somewhat obliquely as to not stir up possibly deadly retribution from the church. Out of the Lutheran tradition of increasing mans freedom of choice and his relation to nature, and decrying the churches ideas of buying your way into heaven, Bohme weaves a thoughtful humanistic philosophy. Contains two full page engravings, one of Bohme's burial cross (that was evidently quickly removed from the burial site, likely by Orthodox Catholics), the other being a Kabbalastic map/form showing mans relationship to God and I believe the universe. "Four Tables of Divine Revelation" contains intext engravings of charts. Bookplate of Ernest Ridley Debenham, British merchant inside front board. A Scarce volume.

        Scrinia Sacra; Secrets of Empire, in Letters of Illustrious Persons. A Supplement of the Cabala. In which Business of the same Quality and Grandeur is contained: With many famous Passages of the late Reigns of K. Henry 8. Q. Elizabeth, K. James, and K. Charls

      London: Printed for G. Bedel, and T. Collins, and are to be sold at their Shop at the Middle-Temple-gate in Fleet-street, 1654. First edition of this collection of internal and otherwise "secret" primary sources from the reign of Henry VIII through Charles I. Beginning with Henry VIII's 1533 letter to the clergy in York, "touching his Title of Supreme Head of the Church of England," and the doomed Anne Boleyn's 1536 letter to the king from her cell, this compilation offers readers insight into the politics of early modern England at every level. The machinations of Spain, the problems with Ireland, and the uneasy position of Catholics in England are all addressed by heads of state and their closest counselors, while Thomas Bodeley rebukes Francis Bacon for the arrogance of his scientific method, and Bacon admits to Essex that he has "plaid the ignorant Statesman, which I do to no body but your Lordship, except I do it to the Queen sometimes when she trains me on." Scrinia Sacra was issued as a companion volume to Cabala, the publisher's collection of related letters published earlier that year; the two volumes were released together with a new general title page soon after this first printing. Wing S2110. From the library of David Belasco (1853-1931), the American theatrical impresario and playwright, with his elaborate decorative bookplate. A very good example of a popular political sourcebook. Quarto, modern full dark green morocco, boards paneled Cambridge-style with double rules and corner ornaments in blind, raised bands, black morocco spine label, spine ruled and lettered in gilt, new handmade endpapers. Title page printed in red and black. Engraved bookplate of David Belasco to front pastedown. Expert paper repairs to gutter of original flyleaf and title page, small spot to title, text lightly embrowned, light dampstaining to top edge of signatures in middle of text block.

        Erster (-achter) Theil der Arien etlicher theils Geistlicher, theils Weltlicher, zur Andacht, guten Sitten, keuscher Liebe und Ehren-Lust dienender Lieder zum Singen und Spielen gesetzt [.].

      Königsberg, Johann Reusner (1-7) und Paschen Mense (8), 1650-1654. - Folio (206 x 327 mm). 8 parts (all published; in various editions, dated I: 1652; II-V; 1651; VI: 1652; VII: 1654; VIII: 1650) in one volume. Engraved half-title; (28); (28); (28); (28); (28); (28); (28); (28) pp. Letterpress with numerous woodcuts in the text. Contemp. black morocco (spine rebacked), covers blindstamped with giltstamped initials "S. B." and year "1666". Extremely rare: "unquestionably the most representative of all German song collections published in the 17th century" (Osthoff); also an important source for the study of German Baroque literature due to the poems of Simon Dach. Heinrich Albert (1604-51) was the cousin and student of Heinrich Schütz. "With Simon Dach, Albert formed the nucleus of the Königsberg poetic circle, which was of especial importance for the Baroque song" (Riemann). The poems of Dach, the "Prussian Opitz", were never published in a complete collection during his lifetime. - The legendary rarity of these "Arias" has been remarked upon even by E. L. Gerber in 1812: "In spite of the number of editions which Albert's works enjoyed, they have now become so rare that I have never seen a single note of his, although I have dedicated more than three decades of my life to the pursuit of musical products" (Neues historisch-biographisches Lexikon der Tonkünstler II, 48). - The richly illustrated engraved half-title, which actually belongs to part 8, has been bound first of all (lower edge trimmed and rebacked with old paper; final two letters of the word "Achter" erased, so as to form a common title to the entire collection: "Acht Theil der Arien theils geistlicher zu christlichem Leben und Sterben anreitzender, theils weltlicher zu geziemender Lust dienender Lieder"). Modern spine and endpapers. Occasional annotations in an old hand; one interleaved sheet of handwritten music; a few slight flaws repaired. Save for two slightly stained pages a very clean copy.

        I] Tatiani Oratio Ad Graecos. Hermiae Irrisio Gentilium Philosophorum Ex vetustis Exemplaribus Recensuit (...) Wilhelmus Worth. (Angebunden:) [II] Sibylla Capitolina, Publii Virgilii Maronis Poemation interpretatione et notis illustratum a S.L. [von Petro Daudé].

      [I]: (14), 212, XXVII, 213-252 Seiten. Mit großem gestochenen Kopfstück und großer figürlicher Initiale auf Seite 1. - [II]: (4), 92 Seiten. Schöne gestochene Titelvignette von B. Picart mit Darstellung eines Phönix und dem Motto 'Vitam post funera reddit' (Das Leben kehrt nach dem Tode zurück) auf dem zweiten Titel. 8 (20,5 x 14 cm). Schöner Halbpergamentband der Zeit mit mehrfarbig geädertem Kleisterpapier-Bezug und rotgefärbten Schnitten. [Hardcover / fest gebunden]. [I]: Graesse VI, 41. Zweisprachiger Druck (Altgriechisch-Latein) der seltenen Tatian-Ausgabe in zwei Kolumnen auf starkem Papier und hervorragender Typographie. Eingeschoben die 27seitige "Dissertatio in Tatianum". - [II]: Barbier IV, 1378. Graesse VI, 351. Bibl. Hulthem III, 16466. - An Tatians berühmte Streitschrift gegen die Griechen angebunden findet sich der klandestine Druck "Sibylla Capitolina". Diese Gegenschrift ("Satyre assez ingenieuse", Bibl. Hulthem) des reformierten französischen Theologen und Philosophen Petrus Daudé (1654-1733) war pseudonym erschienen und richtete sich gegen die umstrittene Bulle "Unigenitus dei filius" von 1713, mit der Papst Clemens XI. auf Drängen König Ludwigs XIV. den bereits im 17. Jahrhundert zur Häresie erklärten Jansenismus erneut verurteilt hatte. Innerhalb der ersten sechs Jahre nach Abfassung der Bulle hatten die meisten kirchlichen Sympathisanten des Jansenismus Frankreich verlassen und sich in Belgien oder den Niederlanden niedergelassen. Die vorliegende Schrift mit fingiertem Oxford-Sheldon Impressum wurde vermutlich in Amsterdam gedruckt (die Titelvignette von B. Picart spricht ebenfalls dafür) und setzt sich aus Vergil-Fragmenten zusammen, die zusammen mit der umfangreichen Interpretation am Fuß der Seite den satirischen Gehalt des Werks ausmachen. Der Verfasser Daudé war in jungen Jahren nach England ausgewandert und hatte möglicherweise intimere Kenntnisse der dortigen Buchdruckereien. - Zum Drucker von [I]: Das Sheldonian Theatre wurde vom Erzbischof Canterburys, Gilbert Sheldon, der gleichsam Kanzler der Universität war, aus eigenen Mitteln erbaut und 1669 eröffnet. Es diente unter anderem der Vergabe von Diplomen und beherbergte eine Druckpresse, die unter anderem für die Oxford University Press genutzt wurde. (LGB VII, 74). Der akademisch hochrangige Druckort und die Streitschrift Tatian boten sich wohl als fingiertes Impressum für die antipäpstliche Satire an, deren typographische Gestaltung deutlich hinter der des vorgebundenen Werks zurücksteht. - Lateinische Notiz alter Hand, den angebundenen Text betreffend, mit Tinte auf dem Vorsatz ("Satyra satis ingeniosa"). - Der schöne Halbpergamentband nur leicht angeschmutzt und in überaus erfreulichem Zustand. Kopfschnitt leicht angestaubt und vorderes Innengelenk minimal gelöst, sonst innen tadellos. Insgesamt sehr gutes und sauberes Exemplar. - In dieser Kombination besonders interessanter und reizvoller Sammelband.

After publishing several general atlases himself he became the associate of Pierre Mariette, a publisher of prints.In 1647 Sanson accused the Jesuit Philippe Labbe of plagiarizing him in his Pharus Galliae Antiquae; in 1648 he lost his eldest son Nicolas, killed during the Fronde. Among the friends of his later years was the great Condé. He died in Paris on 7 July 1667. Two younger sons, Adrien (d. 1708) and Guillaume (d. 1703), succeeded him as geographers to the king.In 1692 Hubert Jaillot collected Sanson's maps in an Atlas nouveau. See also the 18th century editions of some of Sanson's works on Delamarche under the titles of Atlas de géographie ancienne and Atlas britannique; and the Catalogue des cartes et livres de géographie de Sanson (1702).

        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]

These were books of maps and descriptions of itineraries, used by helmsmen for safe navigation. The patent was a kind of protection against illegal copying of produced books and charts. This was especially important for the atlases which were made with extensive initial costs. Van Keulen named his firm ?In de Gekroonde Lootsman? ('In the Crowned Pilot'). Soon Van Keulen struck a deal with cartographer Claes Jansz. Vooght.

        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. Temkin, The Fallinmg Sickness, pp.149-150 176 189 193 194 201 205 230 239 323
