         Paradise Lost. A Poem in Twelve Books.

      London: S. Simmons, 1674. Rare Second edition of Milton's masterpiece. Octavo, with portrait frontispiece, contemporary calf, rebacked, original marbled edges. In very good condition with some toning to the text, contemporary name. First published in 1667, "Paradise Lost is generally conceded to be one of the greatest poems in the English language; and there is no religious epic in English which measures up to Milton's masterpiece... Milton performed an artist's service to his God" (Magill, 511, 515). The writer and critic Samuel Johnson wrote that Paradise Lost shows off "[Milton's] peculiar power to astonish" and that "[Milton] seems to have been well acquainted with his own genius, and to know what it was that Nature had bestowed upon him more bountifully than upon others: the power of displaying the vast, illuminating the splendid, enforcing the awful, darkening the gloomy, and aggravating the dreadful."

Recueil d'usages juridiques établi par Charles Emmanuel de Ville à la demande du sénat de la principauté de Savoie, afin de guider les jurisconsultes dans l'exercice de leurs fonctions.

A quoy la prevoyance du Senat à voulu pourvoir par le ministère du moindre de sa compagnie, en m'ordonnant de donner au public quelques remarques que je destinois seulement à mon instruction particuliere."

Tracce di tarlo limitate alla legatura; bruniture e fioriture tipiche della carta tedesca del tempo, peraltro esemplare nel complesso genuino e in buono stato di conservazione. Ahasver Fritsch (1629-1701), giureconsulto tedesco nativo di Mucheln, insegnò all'Università di Jena in Turingia e scrisse alcune fortunate opere, principalmente di taglio giuspubblicistico e romanistico. Queste tre opere, tutte in edizione originale, sono molto interessanti. La prima descrive la disciplina del transito delle truppe militari: modalità di passaggio e cause di negazione del transito secondo le consuetudini, il diritto romano e il diritto imperiale. La seconda è dedicata agli archivi pubblici e al ruolo degli archivisti; secondariamente alle cancellerie, uffici fondamentali nella conservazione degli atti processuali. La terza opera, anch'essa interessantissima, è dedicata alle armi da getto (missiles): denominazione, origine e propagazione dell'uso, disciplina nel diritto romano (novella De Consulibus). Opere rare e pressoché sconosciute nel mercato antiquario. Cfr. Kvk. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Giovanni Pindemonte, marchese veronese vissuto nel XVII secolo, fu giureconsulto e criminalista. Diede alle stampe, oltre a questi Discorsi, solo tre opere: "Panegirico della cicala di Anacreonte" (1673), "Orationi criminali e panegiriche" (1679) e "Oratione di Giovanni Pindemonte giuresconsulto" (1643).

Dall'indice: "Che si possano generare, come rane, uomini dalla terra", "Che sia habitata la luna", "Che la luna non sia habitata", "Dell'essenza dell'amore", "Della lingua, e Ortografia Toscana". Molto interessanti i numerosi capitoli di taglio astronomico-cosmografico dedicati alla possibilità che la luna possa essere o meno abitata.

         ARTICULI PACIS & AMICITIAE, INTER...CAROLUM II...ET CELSOS AC PRAEPOTENTES DOMINOS ORDINES GENERALES FOEDERATARUM BELGII PROVINCIARUM...

      London, 1674. [2],12pp. Small quarto. Modern three quarter calf and cloth, spine gilt. About fine. The First British printing of the Treaty of Westminster, ending the Third Dutch War. The Dutch, beset by enemies on all sides, were forced to make trading concessions throughout the world, and to again surrender New York, which they had retaken. This is the final passage of New York into British hands. The treaty effectively eliminated the Dutch threat to British colonization of the mid-Atlantic states, and meant that in the future the French would be the main challenger to British hegemony in North America. The fifth article provides for the removal of British settlers from Surinam. This is the official Latin text, apparently preceding an English- language printing of the treaty and is quite scarce, with EUROPEAN AMERICANA locating only four copies. DAVENPORT 69.

         Natural History of the Passions.

      [London]: In the Savoy, Printed by T. N. for James Magnes in Russell-Street, 1674. First edition.. Homemade repair of a calf patch at the head of the spine in the style of an earlier repair, with a recent red morocco label to the spine; some occasional damp-staining and some rubbing and wear; a very good to good copy.. 8vo, contemporary sheep, [48], 188 pages. From the royalist physician and neo-Epicurean Walter Charleton (1619-1707), an important work engaging in part with Descartes and Hobbes, on the relationship between emotions and healthóor as Charleton has it here, ìthough it be undoubtedly true, that the Reasonable Soul hath her intellectual Delights and Disquiets apart, such as are proper to her simple and spiritual nature: yet is it no less true, that those other Delights and Disquiets that are common to her with the Body, depend upon the affections.î Once thought to be based on J.F. Senaultís De líusage des passions (1641), this is instead an original English work; see R. A. Hunter and E. Cuttler, ìWalter Charletonís Natural History of the Passions (1674) and J. F. Senaultís The Use of the Passions (1649): A case of mistaken identity,î Journal of the History of Medicine and the Allied Sciences, vol. 13, 1958, and Emily Booth, ìA Subtle and Mysterious Machineî: The Medical World of Walter Charleton (1619-1707), Dordrecht: Springer, 2005.

         Il Pentamerone overo Lo Cunto de li Cunte trattenimento de li Peccerille

      BASILE Giovan Battista. Il Pentamerone overo Lo Cunto de li Cunte trattenimento de li Peccerille. In Napoli, ad istanza di Antonio Bulifon libraro all'Insegna della Sirena, 1674. In 16mo; pp.12n.nn., 633, 3n.nn. Pergamena coeva, titolo calligrafato al dorso. Ex libris. Rara e celebre raccolta di fiabe in dialetto napoletano, la più antica opera di racconti fiabeschi e tradizioni popolari della storia europea. In questa edizione compare per la prima volta il titolo "Pentamerone". Lo Cunto de li Cunte ebbe grande influenza in tutta Europa su scrittori come C. Brentano, i fratelli Grimm, Perrault, Carlo Gozzi, Wieland. Dall'introduzione di Benedetto Croce all'edizione del 1891: "Il Cunto de li Cunti è un libro di fiabe. E le fiabe, non occorre quasi il dirlo, sono racconti popolari tradizionali di avventure, alle quali pigliano parte esseri umani, ed esseri sovraumani od estraumani della mitologia popolare, come fate, orchi, animali parlanti, ecc. Questo complesso di racconti tradizionali, la cui origine è incerta e discussa e risale senza dubbio a una remota antichità, viene ora considerato dalla moderna filologia come un gruppo di documenti importanti per la storia del genere umano e per la psicologia popolare. Ma, per molti secoli, essi non furono se non un oggetto di diletto e di trattenimento pel popolo ingenuo e pei fanciulli, che avidamente li ascoltavano: lo scienziato disdegnava d'appressarvisi, e solo, di rado, vi si appressò l'artista. E uno dei primi artisti, anzi il primo, che vi si appressasse, fu appunto il nostro Giambattista Basile... Nel 1674 l'editore Antonio Bulifon, un francese stabilito a Napoli, «vedendo, com'egli stesso dice, che veniva sommamente desiderato questo, altrettanto arguto quanto giocoso, Pentamerone del vivace e bizzarro ingegno del Cavalier Giovan Battista Basile», fece sì che, «ridotto alla vera lettione, per mezzo delle stampe ei rinascesse». Chi lo ridusse alla «vera lettione» fu un abate pugliese, Pompeo Sarnelli, poi vescovo di Bisceglie, appassionato cultore del dialetto napoletano, che allora serviva, a quanto sembra, da correttore nella stamperia del Bulifon. Il Cunto de li Cunti fu, in quest'edizione, intitolato, per la prima volta, sul frontespizio: Il Pentamerone: titolo più breve, che ricorda illustri precedenti, e che perciò prevalse. Ed, anche sul frontespizio, è detto «co tutte le zeremonie corrietto»; e, certo, il Sarnelli vi spese intorno molte cure". Le cinquanta fiabe delle cinque giornate sono tutte collegate tra loro, e racchiuse in una cornice generale, che ravvicina questo libro di fiabe ai più classici libri italiani di novelle, ai Decameron, alle Cene, ai Diporti, alle Piacevoli Notti, ecc.

Seltene, erste Ausgabe des ersten Buches, das "De Morbis infantum" betitelt ist, veröffentlicht bereits 15 Jahre vor Harris's "De Morbis Acutis Infantum" mit eigenhändigen Besitzvermerk auf dem Titelblatt von Johann Conrad Rasor "ein Arzt zu Frankfurt am May, welcher zu leiden und Strasburg studirte, schrieb eine gelehrte Abhandlung : de ophtalmia, una cum fistula lacrymali. Lugd. 1675." Jöcher (1819), 6.Bd."Franciscus Sylvius de le Boe aus Hanau (1614-1672), ein berühmter Professor der Anatomie in Leyden, dessen Namen der Aquaeductus Sylvii und die Fossa Sylvi tragen, ist der Begründer der iatrochochemischen Schule, die fast alle Krankheiten darauf zurückführt, daß dem Blute Acrimonia (Schärfen) - alkalische oder besonders hyperazide Säfte - beigemischt sind. In seinem Tracttus "De morbis infantum" (1674) erklärt er auch die Kinderkrankheiten in dieser Weise.Er beschreibt in seinem Werke (Peiper, p.130): 1. Icterus,2. Bauchschmerzen,3. grüne, sauer riechende Stühle, 4.Aufstoßen, Singultus, Nausea, Kardialgie, Erbrechen, besonders von geronnener Milch,5. Aphthen, 6. epilerpetische Anfälle 7. Erschwerte Zahnung, 8. S. Tinea (eine Krankheit des behaarten Kopfes) und Scabies, 9. Variola und Morbillen,10. Würmer.Auch "Harris ist der Ansicht, daß 'ein Azidum oder saueres Wesen in denen vornehmsten Zuständen der jungen Kinder durchaus die Oberhand habe und die meisten Zufälle verursache'. Er beruft sich dabei auf Francisus Sylvius de le Boe, der bereits die gleiche Anschauung vertreten hat." Peiper, p.131"1650 entdeckt ... Slyvius in Leyden die Tuberkel in unserem Sinne und beschreibt sie als größere und kleinere drüsenartige Tuberkula in den Lungen. Die Phthise, wird nach ihm durch die ansteckende Atemluft der Phthisiker übertragen." Albrecht Peiper, Chronik der Kinderheilkunde. 4.Aufl. (1965), p.600Rare First Edition - of the first book titled 'De Morbis Infantum", it was published fifteen years before Harris' 'De Morbis Acutis Infantum'. (1689)! Gastro-Acidity as the Cause of Infantile Disease : "Sylvius' 'De Morbis Infantum' which is in the 4th book of his, 'Praxeos Medicae Appendix,' "illustrates his ideas about gastro-intestinal acidity as the cause of infantile disease. His view was adopted by Walter Harris a few years later, but he complained that Sylvius had not followed out the logical sequence of this theory." Herny Schumann, Trent Collection Franciscus de le Boé Sylvius (1614-1672), professor of the practice of medicine of Leyden, was one of the foremost physicians of his time. In 1637, Sylvius, as he was called, is credited by Haller giving the first description of the lateral cerebral fissure which bears his name. Although the aqueduct from the third to the fourth ventricle had been previously noted, Sir Michael Foster says we owe to Sylvius the name of the aqueduct. Both anatomical structures are described in Sylvius's Diputationes Medicarium. To clinical neurology Sylvius contributed the observation that some tremors were always present and some appeared only during movement." Mc Henry , Histotry of Neurology, p.64. "Sylvius was the first to describe the tubercles in phthisis. In the history of medicine, however, Sylvius was the most brillant representative of the iatrochemical school, founded by Paracelsus and continued by J.B. van Helmont, which reached its zenith when Sylvius defended the chemiatric conception from the Leiden chair. He was convinced that all physiological and pathological processes could be conceived perfectly in analogy in the chemical laboratory and could be explained by fermentation, effervescence, and putrefaction. Acid and alkali were considered as fundamental principles in the animal body." G.A. Lindeboom, DSB XIII, pp.222-223Garrison & Morton No. 2197 (4.Vol. of 4 each in itself complete, and with different imprints).

         Reise Beschreibung. in Turckey, Egypten, Palestina, Persien, Ost-Indien, und andere weit entlegene Landschafften.

      Geneva: Johann Herman Widerhold 1674 - Four volumes in one, folio (34 x 21 cm.), half-title, printed title in red and black, engraved pictorial additional title and 30 plates, directions to the binder leaf at end, contemporary vellum, spine with title in gilt, a fine copy. Very fresh example of the first edition in German. "His perceptive and detailed letters, enriched by the romance and poignancy of his devotion to his wife, together create one of the finest works of travel literature" (Howgego). Pietro Della Valle's (1586-1652) text comprises a series of fifty-four letters written to the physician Schipano of Naples during his extensive travels. He left Venice in 1614 on a pilgrimage to Palestine. From Sinai he proceeded to Damascus, Aleppo and Baghdad, thence into Persia where he married the Circasssian Setti Manni, who accompanied him on his further travels. In Persia, he spent some time at the court of Shah Abbas, but his wife died at Persepolis in 1622. He had her body embalmed and took it with him, accompanied by her Georgian maidservant. His travels took him further east to the coast of India as far as Calicut, and from Goa to Muscat, thence to Aleppo by way of Basrah, finally reaching Rome in 1626. He subsequently married the maidservant, by whom he had fourteen sons. Rohricht 948; Tobler p98. Cf Blackmer 1712 for French edition; cf Koç, Constantinople I 56 for Italian edition.

         Totius Neobelgii Nova et Accuratissima Tabula

      c 1674., Amsterdam, - The 'Restitutio View' of Dutch New-York Proof state. Double-page engraved map (460 by 540mm to the neatline, full margins showing the plate mark), with exceptionally fine contemporary hand-colour in part and in outline A rare 'proof' state, one of only a very few know, showing the rare 'Restitutio view' of New York. This map was originally published shortly before the English occupation of New Netherlands in 1664 with a different title. The short-lived Dutch reconquest of 1673 led Allard to reissue the map, replacing the famous view of New Amsterdam by Nicolas Visscher with the current 'Restitutio view.' It shows a greatly expanded city, indicative of the widespread prosperity during the first English occupation of 1664-1673. At far right is the Dutch wall which later became Wall Street. The city is already beginning to spread beyond the wall to the north. The fort, at the foot of Bowling Green, can be seen at left. At center, the new canal that cut into the city from the harbor is shown complete for the first time. Also shown are Cornelius Evertsen's Dutch fleet, which re-captured New York in 1673, off the south coast of Long Island. The next year, the Dutch permanently ceded New Amsterdam to England by treaty. A blank medallion above the view was probably intended to contain the arms of the House of Orange. The fact that it was left blank suggests that the map was still unrevised when New Netherlands was reconquered by the English in October 1674. On this second state the name of the publisher, Hugo Allard, has not yet been added in, and the letters to the key previously wanting on the map are now present. The main body of the map, depicting the Dutch and English colonies in the Northeast, (from the Dutch point of view) derives from the manuscript by an unknown mapmaker that accompanied the famous Remonstrance that Adriaen van der Donck took to Amsterdam in 1649. The map served as the source for Dutch maps of the region for nearly a century. One of van der Donck's hopes had been that more Dutch people would be enticed by an attractive rendition of vast unsettled Dutch American lands teeming with game that stretched from the Delaware River to the Connecticut. Life was too comfortable in the Netherlands however, and the small, very diverse, population that settled New Amsterdam and Fort Orange was soon overwhelmed by the ever swelling tide of hopeful English immigrants. The Visscher and Allard maps played a major role in the Penn – Lord Baltimore boundary dispute, in which king divided the Delmarva Peninsula between Maryland and Pennsylvania from the 40th degree of latitude in the north and a latitudinal line drawn from Cape Henlopen in the south. Unfortunately for Maryland, Cape Henlopen was incorrectly positioned on this map 25 miles too far south – consequently land that ought to have been Maryland went to the Penn family [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Portada con escudo xilográfico con flor de Lis del dedicatario, el Excelentísimo señor conde de Villaumbrosa, Presidente de Castilla y de la Junta del Gobierno Universal. Edición Seiscentista de este importante tratado que vio luz por primera vez en Madrid en 1588 en el taller tipográfico de Pedro de Madrigal, y que gozó de numerosas impresiones ese mismo año y a lo largo del siglo XVI (Madrid, 1588; Zaragoza, 1588; Barcelona, 1588; Valencia, 1588; Amberes, 1588; Lisboa, 1588; Lisboa, 1589; segunda parte, Alcalá, 1593; Lisboa, 1594 y Amberes, 1594). Asimismo se incluyó en las Obras completas (Madrid, en casa de la viuda de Pedro de Madrigal, 1595, págs. 447-689), con portada propia y escudo xilográfico de la Compañía. Posteriormente vio luz en Madrid en 1781 y 1786, y Cádiz en 1863. En su mayor parte es una traducción del "De origine ac progressu Schismatis Anglicani libri tres" de Nicolás Sandero (Roma, 1586), como no oculta el propio Ribadeneyra en su Prólogo al lector: "A mis manos ha llegado un libro del doctor Nicolás Sandero, varón excelente, inglés de nación, de profesión teólogo, y de vida ejemplar, en el cual describe los principios y el progreso del cisma que comenzó en Inglaterra el rey Enrique VIII, y los pasos y escalones por donde ha crecido y subido a la cumbre de maldad en que el presente está". Se trata, por lo tanto, de una notable obra histórica que ataca de lleno los antojos del monarca inglés, la constancia de la reina doña Catalina, la torpeza de Ana Bolera, las lisonjas y engaños de los ministros del rey, y especialmente, la paciencia y tormentos que sufrieron los católicos que vivieron la escisión anglicana.

         A representation of the state of Christianity in England, and of it's [sic] decay and danger from Sectaries aswel [sic] as Papists.

      London Benj. Tooke 1674 - 4to., 36pp., well bound fairly recently in red quarter morocco over marbled boards, spine gilt lettered. A fine, well-margined, and crisp copy. First edition. This, unfortunately anonymous, essay paints a depressing portrait of the Anglican Church in Restoration England. The author notes sadly that Sundays were 'now generally scorn'd and neglected by Anabaptists, Libertines, &c. who in an open defiance to Christianity and the Churches laws, designedly make choice upon that day to engage in the most servile works and drudgeries. The Festivals of the Saints have met with a far worse fate, it being accounted superstitious and ridiculous to praise God for their examples . We have reason to believe', the writer predicts, 'that the Christian faith will be but short-liv'd amongst us'. He gloomily points out that the 'Sectaries' show that they have no interest in preserving church buildings when they make such provocative comments as that 'they will freely pay to a levie that is made to pull down steeple-houses to mend the highways, but will rather starve and rot in a jail than contribute one farthing towards their reparation'. He notes, moreover, that 'most of our barns and stables in which we feed our beasts, are more cleanly and decent and in far better repair, than many of our churches in England, in which we worship our God'.

First edition. St. Paul's cathedral in London had been almost completely destroyed in the 1666 Great Fire. What was left standing had to be demolished. The 1674 Royal Commission, issued on 12th November 1674, not only authorised the final demolition but charges the Lord Mayor, Sir Robert Hanson, and a large group of named commissioners 'to demolish and take down what is yet remaining of the old fabrick, and to begin, and carry on the new work . and to call to your aid and assistance, such skilful artists, officers, and workmen, as ye shall think fit .'. 'And although we are very sensible, that the erecting such a new fabrick or structure according to the design above mentioned, will be a work not onely of great time but also of very extraordinary cost, and expence, (far above that of the repairs either former or later:) yet are we in no sort discouraged from undertaking the same .'. And the King promises to contribute £1000 p.a. towards the rebuilding costs, but hopes also that local residents in the City 'will be ready to follow Our example by chearful and bountiful supplies to the carrying on and finishing the said work .'. Donations would be received by the Dean. Indeed, the Commission set out not only the scheme for national and local fund-raising, but also set the parameters for financial and project management and accountability. Among those commissioned was 'Christopher Wren Doctor of Laws, Surveyor General of Our Works'. In 1675, the year following, work on the new cathedral, based on Wren's so-called 'Warrant Design', would begin. It was not declared complete, however, until 1711.

         Hebdomas observationum de Rebus Sinicis [.].

      Berlin, Georg Schultz, 1674. - 4to. 4 parts in 1 volume. (8), 47, (1) pp. (38) pp. 63, (1) pp. 18 pp. With 2 title pages, the first and dedication on its verso printed in red and black, 1 botanical woodcut in text, woodcut headpiece, tailpiece and decorated initials, woodcut Chinese characters, decorations built up from cast fleurons. With diamond-head music notes, long passages in Syriac and Arabic type. (Bound with) II: Müller, Andreas. Monumenti Sinici [.]. Berlin, Christoph Runge, 1672. Including: [drop-title:] De monumento Sinico commentarius novensilis. - [drop-title:] Caput Primum. Historia lapidis. - [Berlin, Georg Schultz?, 1674?]. Marbled boards (ca. 1800?). A series of works apparently printed and published together (even though the second title-page gives a different publisher and date) on various aspects of China and its culture, by the gifted orientalist Andreas Müller (1630-1694). The title-page of part 1 lists seven numbered subjects for its brief observations: history, missionaries in China from the time of the Old Testament to the time of publication, Chinese emperors and other rulers, ginseng and its medicinal uses, astronomy and the calendar, geography and the relation between the names of the planets and the days of the week. Part 2 is devoted primarily to the transliteration in italic type of an extensive Chinese inscription, using special diacritical marks to indicate the tones and representing them also with Western musical notation above the text. It was a 781 "Nestorian" (East Christian) inscription that had been discovered in the 1620s and first published by Athanasius Kircher in 1667. Müller took issue with Kircher's publications on the inscription. It is followed by several shorter texts, including two pages with parallel columns giving an Aramaic text (the language of the Nestorians) in Syriac script with a Latin translation, and a phonetic rendering of the Chinese Lord's Prayer. Parts 3 and 4 contain additional commentaries on the same Nestorian inscription. - Although the title-page to part 2 is dated "1672" and names the "officina Rungiana" as publisher, all four parts appear to be printed on the same paper stock and they share at least some typographic materials. At least the supplements (which have no date or imprint) seem likely to have been printed by Schultz with part 1, and part 2 may have been as well. - The extensive use of Syriac and Arabic type gives the publication special typographic interest, and it also gives a nice showing of Reinier Voskens's two largest italic types (the largest in the 6-page dedication), only about a decade after he cut them. Copies with all four parts complete are extremely rare, VD17 recording at most one. - Somewhat browned, but otherwise in good condition, with only some tiny marginal worm holes (affecting 1 letter in the imprint of the second title-page). Parts 2 and 4 each lacks a final blank leaf. A remarkable example of early oriental studies. BLC German (17th cent.) M-1471. Cordier (Sinica) 773f. (parts 2-4 only). Löwendahl 155, 161-163. Walravens, China illustrata 88 (part 1 only). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        ARTICULI PACIS & AMICITIAE, INTER.CAROLUM II.ET CELSOS AC PRAEPOTENTES DOMINOS ORDINES GENERALES FOEDERATARUM BELGII PROVINCIARUM.

      London. 1674. - [2],12pp. Small quarto. Modern three quarter calf and cloth, spine gilt. About fine. The First British printing of the Treaty of Westminster, ending the Third Dutch War. The Dutch, beset by enemies on all sides, were forced to make trading concessions throughout the world, and to again surrender New York, which they had retaken. This is the final passage of New York into British hands. The treaty effectively eliminated the Dutch threat to British colonization of the mid-Atlantic states, and meant that in the future the French would be the main challenger to British hegemony in North America. The fifth article provides for the removal of British settlers from Surinam. This is the official Latin text, apparently preceding an English- language printing of the treaty and is quite scarce, with EUROPEAN AMERICANA locating only four copies. DAVENPORT 69. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 674/86. SABIN 2146 (other eds). WING C2916.
