In this work he provides an overview of Turkish astronomy, together with a dissertation on a related manuscript in his possession. The manuscript, which is reproduced at the end of the main text, is a Persian perpetual calendar, now attributed to the 9th century Persian astronomer and mathematician Abu al-Wafa' (940-997/98). It features a calligraphic commentary in Ottoman Turkish, dating from the mid 17th century, which is also subject to analysis in Welsch's dissertation. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Second leaf recto with woodcut head-piece and initial. Some light soiling and staining but good. Bound in contemporary sheep, rubbed and worn and with some loss, but overall a copy of some charm.

        Cassandra: The Fam'd Romance. The Whole Work in Five Parts Written originally in French, and Now Elegantly rendred into English by Sir Charles Cotterell, Master of Ceremonies to His Late Majesty of Blessed Memory, and to our present Soveraign Charles II.

      London: Peter Parker 1676 - First Edition. Folio. Original full leather binding. 7 raised bands, with gilt ornamentation and label to spine. A little bumping and rubbing with some splitting to the spine edge. Armorial plate to the inside front board. Various inscriptions (see notes below). Frontis engraving. There is a little nicking to the edge of the engraving. Title in red and black. Closed tear to the title page. [viii], 1-576. pages. Most of the book is clean and tidy, but with a little marking to the last few pages. Overal a decent copy. A gift and legacy of the Earls of Lindsay. An old inked inscription to verso of the Frontis states "The legacy of King Charles the 1st to Montague Earl of Lindsey. L. M. Bertie." There is another copy of Bertie’s signature on the book dated 1732. This would appear to be Capt. Lord Montagu Bertie (died 1753). He was the great grandson of the Earl referred to. (Montagu Bertie, 2nd Earl of Lindsey). The term "legacy" here cannot be taken literally, and is more likely to refer to the statement to the title. Both the King and the Earl were dead by the time of publication of the book. A large armorial plate to the inside front board states "The Hon. James Bertie esq. of Westminster. Second son to James late Earl of Abingdon 1702." These were the son and grandson of Montague the second earl A further inscription to the inside front board states "The gift of Montague Earl of Abingdon to Charles Bertie Rector of Uffington." Charles another of the sons of the second earl (and brother of James whose bookplate is here) – so the book would appear to have moved around the family. The important relative here is Montagu (or Montague) Bertie, 2nd Earl of Lindsay. He was a Royalist, courtier, Member of Parliament and Gentleman of the Privy Chamber. He fought for Charles in the Civil War and was wounded at Naseby. He remained at the side of the King through the war, his surrender, imprisonment and execution.

Rebound in red half leather over aubergine boards with gilt lettering on red leather label of spine; raised bands. Double-rule borders on title pages.

Historiated headpieces and initials on dedication page to the right Honourable Sr. William Morrice, Kt, preface, Christian Reader and Exercitatio I. in first volume, preface and first chapter in volume two. Printed shoulder notes. Interior washed. "The Epistle to the Hebrews deals mainly with the two great offices of Christ as Revealer and as Priest. It is clear that the author consciously coordinates the two. While the Epistle has in common with the other New Testament writings the representation of Christ as Revealer, it stands practically alone in explicitly naming Him a Priest. It were rash to infer from this that the conception was first created by our author. The sacrificial character of the death of Christ was a common article of faith long before." (The Princeton Theological Review 5:423-447, 579-604, 1907). Though the authorship still isn't a closed matter scholars believe it was written for Jewish Christians in Jerusalem to exhort them to persevere in the face of persecution. Hebrews is considered a "literary" masterpiece, using quotations of the Old Testament to elevate a concept present in Hebrews, Qumran and other writings, conceiving Jesus as a priest affording atonement. The emphatic debate regarding the authorship often points to the text's stylistic quality and therefore rejects the attribution to the Apostle Paul. Text in English with Hebrew passages. Binding with minor wear. Two Ex-Libris plates on inside front cover. Endpapers replaced and clean. Number stamped to first title page above London.

It deals with a large variety of phenomena and contains many generalizations which were subsequently adopted by Newton in his memorable treatise on 'Optics'. Boyle was the first to record that certain vegetable extracts, e.g. lignum nephriticum, change colour when the solution is made acid or changed from acid to alkali. In so doing, he gave to the world the first account of those important substances now well known to the chemist as 'indicators'. He also mentions the iridescence of metallic films and soap bubbles, and describes 'snow-blindness'" (Fulton). - Stellenweise leicht gebräunt.

        A New and Accurat Map of the World; Drawne according to ye truest Descriptions latest Discoveries & best Observations yet have been made by English or Strangers

      London: Bassett & Chiswell, 1676. unbound. Map. Engraving. Image 15 1/2" x 20 1/2". Page 17 1/2" x 22" Map. Engraving. Image 15 1/2" x 20 1/2". Page 17 1/2" x 22". This outstanding double-hemisphere map sets world geography in the context of astronomy and mythology. Published in 1651 and building on the insight and practices of Dutch Golden Age cartography, it is one of the earliest and most impressive English-language world maps. It illustrates both the known and the unknown: the detailed coasts of New England and New France are offset by scattered knowledge of North America's west coast, and the in-depth rendering of Africa and Asia is balanced by the little-explored "almost third part of the world" labelled here as "the Southerne Unknowne Land," not to mention the Arctic north. Scattered texts tell the history of important discoveries by Columbus, Magellan, Sir Francis Drake, and others, and they are complemented by small portraits of some of these important figures around the border of the map. All of this impressive terrestrial information is surrounded by images and ideas of the heavens. Constellation maps of the northern and southern hemispheres are flanked by illustrations of the four elements: water, earth, fire and air. Diagrams in the corners of the map describe solar and lunar eclipses and other astronomical knowledge. In this hard-to-find uncolored state, the map reveals its fineness of its engraving and design. The map is in very good condition with no chips or tears. Discoloration at margin edges, not affecting the image. State 4 English text verso. John Speed (1552-1629), born in Cheshire and a tailor by profession until he was 50, is widely considered to be the most famous English cartographer of the 17th century. He is noted for placing England in the mainstream of map publishing, an industry which was at the time dominated by the Dutch. From his seminal atlas called A Prospect of the most Famous Parts of the World.

        Pharmacopée royale, galénique et chymique

      Chez l'auteur, Paris 1676 - Plein maroquin rouge de l'époque, plats à la Du Seuil. Dos à cinq nerfs, orné et doré, portant le titre doré. Roulette dorée sur les coupes. Roulette dorée sur les chasses. Tranches dorées. In-4 (280x208 mm), frontispice, (12)-1060-(34) pages, 6 planches hors texte. Feuillet Ddddd (page 761/2) remonté et réemmargé. Reliure frottée. Coiffe de queue accidentée. Quelques rousseurs Savant médecin et Pharmacien né à Uzès en 1618, Charas étudia la chimie à Orange, puis vint de bonne heure à Paris, où il fut nommé démonstrateur royal de chimie au jardin du roi. La révocation de l'édit de Nantes le força à quitter la France en 1680. Après avoir pratiqué la médecine avec succès en Angleterre, puis en Hollande, il se rendit en Espagne où il avait été appelé auprès du roi Charles II, depuis longtemps malade. Les soins qu'il lui donna n'empêchèrent pas qu'il fut dénoncé à l'inquisition, par suite de la jalousie des médecins de la cour. Il n'en sortit qu'après avoir abjuré. Ses écrits restent encore marqués par les théories alchimiques. Sa pharmacopée est le fruit de ses leçons données à Paris et de ses études. Elle connut un grand succès, fut rééditée de nombreuses fois et a été traduite dans toutes les langues de l'Europe, et même en chinois pour la commodité de l'Empereur. On y trouve la description de nombreuses préparations, recettes de remèdes et autres panacées universelles. Charas explique aussi dans cet ouvrage pourquoi l'eau forte fond tous les métaux, excepté l'or; et pourquoi l'eau régale, qui met l'or en fusion, ne peut pas fondre les autres métaux, par exemple l'argent. "L'argent, dit-il, a des pores, dont l'ouverture est proportionnée à la grosseur des pointes des particules de l'eau forte, assez aiguës par un bout pour entrer, et assez larges par l'autre pour séparer les parties du métal. Mais l'or, dont les pores sont beaucoup plus étroits que ceux de l'argent, ne peut pas admettre ces particules; donc l'eau forte doit fondre l'argent et non pas l'or. Quant à l'eau régale, elle doit au contraire fondre l'or et non pas l'argent. Les parties de ce dissolvant, subtilisées par le sel d'ammoniac, passent trop librement par les pores de l'argent, et ne se trouvent que dans l'or des pores disposés à les secondés dans leurs fonctions." Rare édition originale, dédiée au grand Colbert. Très beau frontispice allégorique en taille-douce, page de dédicace gravée avec beau décor et six planches gravées sur cuivre : fours, instruments, pots et cornues, symboles chimiques, etc. Cet exemplaire porte l'ex libris de Henry Charas, fils de Moyse, qui reçut maître apothicaire de Paris en 1717, pratique la pharmacie, rue Dauphine où il mourrut en 1756 et dont le portrait figure dans la salle des actes à la Faculté de pharmacie de Paris. Il avait été garde de la communauté en 1736, 1737 et 1738.

Die Bandbreite der diskutierten Meinungen wird durch die gleichberechtigte Nebeneinanderstellung des geozentrischen und des heliozentrischen Systems anschaulich dokumentiert. Daneben beschäftigt sich das Lust-Haus auf über 100 Seiten mit der Physiognomie und Geologie des Mondes. - Der vorwiegend in Nürnberg lebende Francisci (1627-1694) wurde von Gottsched zu den einflussreichsten Autoren der Barockzeit gezählt. - Frontispiz und Titel mit kleinen Randfehlstellen und auf Japanpapier aufgezogen.

        Cassandra: The Fam'd Romance. The Whole Work in Five Parts Written originally in French, and Now Elegantly rendred into English by Sir Charles Cotterell, Master of Ceremonies to His Late Majesty of Blessed Memory, and to our present Soveraign Charles II....

      First Edition. Folio. Original full leather binding. 7 raised bands, with gilt ornamentation and label to spine. A little bumping and rubbing with some splitting to the spine edge. Armorial plate to the inside front board. Various inscriptions (see notes below). Frontis engraving. There is a little nicking to the edge of the engraving. Title in red and black. Closed tear to the title page. [viii], 1-576. pages. Most of the book is clean and tidy, but with a little marking to the last few pages. Overal a decent copy. A gift and legacy of the Earls of Lindsay. An old inked inscription to verso of the Frontis states "The legacy of King Charles the 1st to Montague Earl of Lindsey. L. M. Bertie." There is another copy of Bertie's signature on the book dated 1732. This would appear to be Capt. Lord Montagu Bertie (died 1753). He was the great grandson of the Earl referred to. (Montagu Bertie, 2nd Earl of Lindsey). The term "legacy" here cannot be taken literally, and is more likely to refer to the statement to the title. Both the King and the Earl were dead by the time of publication of the book. A large armorial plate to the inside front board states "The Hon. James Bertie esq. of Westminster. Second son to James late Earl of Abingdon 1702." These were the son and grandson of Montague the second earl A further inscription to the inside front board states "The gift of Montague Earl of Abingdon to Charles Bertie Rector of Uffington." Charles another of the sons of the second earl (and brother of James whose bookplate is here) - so the book would appear to have moved around the family. The important relative here is Montagu (or Montague) Bertie, 2nd Earl of Lindsay. He was a Royalist, courtier, Member of Parliament and Gentleman of the Privy Chamber. He fought for Charles in the Civil War and was wounded at Naseby. He remained at the side of the King through the war, his surrender, imprisonment and execution.

Very good condition outside, text shows browning and foxing. Stamp on reverse of title page. A particularly scarce and hardly known work, preceding Ludolf's famous publication on Ethiopia by a full 5 years and at the same time Ludolf's very first publication! - This is a preliminary outline of the material to be covered extensively in Ludolf's 'Istoria Aethiopica', which was published in three volumes from 1681 to 1693. Job Ludolf, a German German scholar, and the 'founder of Ethiopistics' (Katalog der Eutiner Landesbibliothek) gathered the most important information available about Ethiopia in his time, working for a time in collaboration with one of the Ethiopian monks who stayed in Rome. In addition to his monumental history of the country, he wrote dictionaries and grammars of Ge'ez and Amharic. His intensive studies of Ethiopian culture and life made his work the best 17thcentury source on the region described. 'A most important work on Abyssinia' (transl. from Paulitschke). 'Of an importance transcending his own time'. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      London: Printed by John Darby for Nathaniel Ponder, at the Sign of the Peacock in the Poultry near Corn-Hill, and in Chancery-Lane near Fleetstreet, 1676. Hardcover. vg. Large Quarto. (14) 250, 249-318, (8) 294pp. First title page dated 1676, second title page 1668. Pagination as 1668 edition. Rebound in red half leather over aubergine boards with gilt lettering on red leather label of spine; raised bands. Double-rule borders on title pages. First original title page dated 1676 is rebacked and laid onto cream paper. Historiated headpieces and initials on dedication page to the right Honourable Sr. William Morrice, Kt, preface, Christian Reader and Exercitatio I. in first volume, preface and first chapter in volume two. Printed shoulder notes. Interior washed. "The Epistle to the Hebrews deals mainly with the two great offices of Christ as Revealer and as Priest. It is clear that the author consciously coordinates the two... While the Epistle has in common with the other New Testament writings the representation of Christ as Revealer, it stands practically alone in explicitly naming Him a Priest. It were rash to infer from this that the conception was first created by our author. The sacrificial character of the death of Christ was a common article of faith long before." (The Princeton Theological Review 5:423-447, 579-604, 1907). Though the authorship still isn't a closed matter scholars believe it was written for Jewish Christians in Jerusalem to exhort them to persevere in the face of persecution. Hebrews is considered a "literary" masterpiece, using quotations of the Old Testament to elevate a concept present in Hebrews, Qumran and other writings, conceiving Jesus as a priest affording atonement. The emphatic debate regarding the authorship often points to the text's stylistic quality and therefore rejects the attribution to the Apostle Paul. Text in English with Hebrew passages. Binding with minor wear. Two Ex-Libris plates on inside front cover. Endpapers replaced and clean. Number stamped to first title page above London. Calligraphic handwriting above headpiece of dedication page. Tear at foredge on first page of Christian Reader repaired covering most of another inked entry above title.

        Ludovico Magno theses ex universa philosophia dicat et consecrat Ludovicus a Turre-Arverniae Princeps Turennius. Propugnabit in aula Colleg. Claromontani Societ. Iesu . Anno MDCLXXIX.

      Jesuit College 1676 - La Tour d’Auvergne, Louis Charles de, Prince de Turenne. Ludovico Magno theses ex universa philosphia dicat et consecrat Ludovicus a Turre-Arverniae Princeps Turennius. Propugnabit in aula Colleg. Claromontani Societ. Iesu . Anno MDCLXXIX. [Paris, 1676]. Folio. 15 engraved plates on 8 leaves, including engraved title, dedication, engraved portrait of Louis IV by L. Cossin after Sevin, and 12 engraved plates celebrating the king’s triumphs with 36 aphorisms and 48 emblematic devices of which 28 are by Claude François Menestrier. Red morocco, gilt. A sumptuously illustrated demonstration of the art of allegory depicting the campaigns of Henri de la Tour d’Auvergne, vicomte de Turenne (1611-75) on behalf of, and latterly with, Louis XIV. The suite of plates is issued by the Jesuit College, and comprises the title, set on an ermine mantle placed before the arms and symbols of the sun king; it is signed by the artist (Pierre-Paul Sevin), the engraver (L.Cossin), and calligrapher (René Michault). The text, a treatise on rhetoric by Turenne’s nephew, is dedicated to the martial exploits of Louis XIV. The epistolatory dedication by P.de La Rue is followed by the royal dedicatory portrait within allegorical surround and 12 plates (on 6 leaves) each containing three philosophical maxims by P. Fr. Nepveu bordered by richly ornate engravings: these comprise a head-piece vignette illustrating and naming the campaign, a tail-piece in cartouche or tablet with brief summary of the main events of the action; either side are 2 emblematic devices (in all 48, of which 28 are attributed by Praz to Claude-François Menestrier). Linking the illustrations are an extraordinarily inventive array of pagan and Christian figures, mythical creatures, symbolic instruments, grotesque ornaments, and floral and foliar decoration. The Jesuit, Claude-François Menestrier (1631-1705) was particularly renowned for his treatises on the art of devices and emblems. He also deployed his encyclopaedic knowledge in devising pageants, ceremonies, ballets, armorial bearings and games of wit for the king and courtiers. Of the artists named on the title, the painter, Pierre-Paul Sevin, was notable for illustrating the events of the reign of Louis XIV and employing use of late Baroque symbolism; the calligrapher, René Michault, mentioned by Benezit as the author of an allegory on Louis XIV, is considered one of the best pupils of the great calligraphic master Jarré. Well preserved. The only edition of a magnificent example of the art of imagery which dominated the period. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
