         1677 Origen Against Celsus Early Christian Apology Greek Philokalia Spencer

      Cantabrigiae : Excudebat Joan. Hayes . : Impensis Guli. Morden bibliopolae, 1677, 1676. - 1677 Origen Against Celsus Early Christian Apology Greek Philokalia Spencer Origen was a 3rd-century Greek scholar and early Christian theologian. He was a prolific writer known for his biblical exegeses, philosophy, and sermons, and was one of the most influential figures in early Christian asceticism. (Finn, 100). Origen’s final treatise, ‘Philokalia : Contra Celsum’ or ‘Against Celsus,’ was a response to a literary attack on Christianity by an unknown pagan philosopher named Celsus. Saint Ambrose requested Origen write this book, a book that referenced Greek philosophers, poetry, and the Bible as a rational basis for holding steadfast to the Christian faith. (Heine, 127). Origen’s response is considered to be the ultimate apology of Christianity. ‘Philokalia’ is a collection of the original experts from Origen’s work. This 1677 edition was produced by Cambridge fellow William Spencer. Spencer made vast and significant improvements to the Latin translation originally made by Czech writer Sigismund Gelenius in 1557. Subsequent editions would continue to use the William Spencer translation and notes, even though not all editions are nearly as desirable or accurate.

      Amsterdam, Jacob Meurs & Johannes van Someren, 1676.2 volumes in 1. 4to. Contemporary vellum (sl. soiled), with title in manuscript on spine. With engraved allegorical title-page, engraved portrait, 4 half-page illustrations and 43 engraved plates (20 double-page) after the author. (12),328; 253,(23) pp.First edition. - Wouter Schouten (1638-1704) spent 7 years as a physician in the service of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) in the East 1658-1665. His travel-account stayed very popular for a long time because of his ample and vivid descriptions of the countries, the different peoples and anything of note concerning the animals, plants, etc. of Java, Amboyna, Ternate, Celebes, Cape of Good Hope, coast of Coromandel, Malabar, Persia, Arabia, Ceylon, etc. With fine engraved views of Batavia, Ternate, Malacca, Makassar, Colombo, Cape of Good Hope etc. by C. Decker and J. Kip. Most of them are the first accurate topographical views of these towns. Because of the bad weather the fleet arrived on the return voyage in Bergen (Norway), where Schouten eyewitnessed the attack by the English in 1665. 'Schouten was an observant traveller who explored inland into the environs of nearly every port-of-call, sometimes by himself or with a small group of comrades. His narrative, full of anecdotes as well as information gleaned about countries he had not visited, became particularly popular with readers in the eighteenth century, when it was republished in no fewer than seven editions' (Howgego p.947). 'As a physician, Schouten had a more than ordinary interest in flora and fauna and in hygiene and living conditions' (Lach, Asia in the making III, p.955). - Occasionally some minor staining, margins of 1 plate restored with loss of very small part of the image, added a plate index in manuscript. - A good copy of the rare editio princeps.Tiele 990; Cat. NHSM I, p.174; Landwehr, VOC, 283; Mendelssohn II, p.279-80.

         Seder Ha-ha'arakhah (Order of Assessment) [TAX CODE FOR THE JEWISH COMMUNITY OF MANTUA 1676-1679]

      Mantua (Mantova): Ha'Achim B'nei Rabbi Yehoshua M'Prushah (The Brothers, the Sons of Rabbi Yehoshua, from Perugia), 1676. First edition. Loose leaf. vg. Small quarto. Approximately 8.5x6.5". 12pp. Pages uncut. The Seder Ha-ha'arakhah (Order of Assessment) was the tax code for the Jewish community of Mantua. These tax regulations were first published in 1588 and continued to be published at various intervals until the end of the 18th century. During certain periods a new revised code was published while in other instances the standing regulations were simply renewed and extended.* This publication is for the years 1676-1679, during the rule of Duke Ferdinando Carlo Gonzaga. The Order of Assessment deals in detail with the variety of subjects related to taxation. These include: types of taxable property and income as well as exceptions, minimum taxable amounts, and those based on various goods and types of businesses. As an example, bankers or moneylenders would be responsible for a different tax rate than an artisan or a merchant. The Jewish community would calculate the total tax liability of the community and extrapolate the various sub-rates for individuals as based on the above factors for the given period. Also discussed are how the tax assessors should be elected and operate. At any given time there were usually three assessors elected by the community to serve for terms of three years. It would be these individuals who would be responsible for formulating the updated tax code, with approval of the ruler. Text printed in Hebrew Rashi script. Pages with some minor creasing along the edges. Sporadic light water stains and/or smudges along the edges of some of the pages. Pages in very good condition overall. * "History of the Jews of Mantua" (Simonsohn) *Ferdinando Carlo Gonzaga (1652 - 1708) was the only child of Duke Charles II of Mantua and Montferrat, and the last ruler of the Duchy of Mantua, of the Gonzaga family. He ruled at a time when both the French and the Austrian Empires were vying for power in Northern Italy. "Ferdinando Carlo acquired a name for dissipation and squandered the money in the treasury in his pursuit of pleasure" and "he extorted money from the [Jewish] community, bleeding them to an extent that was unprecedented in the whole history of relations between the Dukes of Gonzaga and their Jewish subjects. - "History of the Jews of Mantua" by Shlomo Simonsohn, p.67 and 69.

         Das Königliche Marck aller Länder / Das ist: Politischer Discurs Zwischen Polygamo und Monogamo von der Polygamia Oder Vielweiberey. auffgesetzt Und mit mehr als 100. Argumenten erkläret.

      Friburgi, Apud Henricum Cunrath (Angaben fingiert), 1676. - 26 nn. Bl. 4° (19,8 x 16,3 cm). Moderne Interimsbroschur mit Leinenstreifen am Rücken. Johannes Leyser oder Lyser, 1631-84, Sohn des Polykarp Leyser II und damit Abkömmling einer bedeutenden Gelehrtenfamilie, geboren in Leipzig, gestorben irgendwo zwischen Paris und Versailles nach langer Zeit des Umherirrens in ganz Europa, wird gelegentlich und fälschlich als Pseudonym des Schauspielers, Musiker und Dichters Johann Peter Theodor Burmeister (1804-1870) aufgelöst, wohl weil dieser unter seiner zahlreichen Pseudonymen sich auch Johann Peter Lyser nannte (vgl. B. Pünjer in ADB, 18, S. 526f - Eintrag unter dem Vater; vgl. auch Eymer 50). Leyser, studierter Theologe und Lutheraner, war lange Vorsteher der Landesschule in Schulpforta, die zwei Jahrhunderte später ein weiterer rebellischer Eliteschüler, Friedrich Nietzsche, besuchte. Leysers Anschauungen der Notwendigkeit von Polygamie als natur- und gottgegeben erzwangen den Bruch mit dem Vater, der Familie und der Gesellschaft insgesamt, die im Gegenzug seine Schriften verbot und verbrannte. Hayn/G. VI, 235: Jöcher II, 2629f. (Weller I, 36 - Druckort nicht aufgelöst). Bei dem Drucker "Cunrath", dessen Name leicht die Assoziation zum dem des berühmten Alchemisten Khunrath erlaubt und damit einer Mystifikation Vorschub leistet, handet es sich möglicherweise um den Hamburger Drucker Henricus Künrath, tätig 1670-93 (vgl. Gruys/de Wolf 48), damit wäre "Friburgus" die "Freie" Stadt Ham"burg". Einige kleinere Randläsuren; wasserrandig; fleckig und angegraut; Unterstreichungen von alter Hand. DE

         Il Malmantile Racquistato. Poema di Perlone Zipoli.

      Stamp. Gio. Tomm Rossi, In Finaro [ma Firenze] 1676 - In-12, pp. (48), 300. Raffinata legatura firmata Trautz-Bauzonnet in marocchino rosso, piatti incorniciati da triplice filetto in oro, dorso a nervi con titolo e ricchi fregi, dentelle e tagli dorati. Ex libris Thomas Gaisford (vendita pubblica 1890, n. 1129). Edizione originale di questo salace «scherzo» fatto di 12 cantari in ottave, pubblicato dall'autore sotto lo pseudonimo -parzialmente- anagrammato di «Perlone Zipoli». Il nostro esemplare, conservato in una raffinata legatura di Trautz-Bauzonnet, ha l'ulteriore considerevole pregio di comprendere i 16 fogli contenenti il contumelioso discorso introduttivo di Giovanni Cinelli (che fu ispirato, o probabilmente dettato, da Antonio Magliabecchi), inteso a lacerare il merito di alcuni letterati toscani allora viventi. Tale discorso, impresso alla macchia, venne unito ai soli primi 50 esemplari, molti dei quali vennero poi distrutti per deliberata volontà del Magliabecchi. L'opera, come è noto, fu pensata dal Lippi come parodia della «Gerusalemme Liberata» e alcuni episodi traggono ispirazione dal «Cunto de li Cunti» del Basile, che il Lippi aveva conosciuto attraverso Salvator Rosa.

         Pianta di Roma disegnata e incisa da Giov. Battista Falda nel 1676

      Roma: M. Danesi, [1965]. 148x150 cm. (stesse misure dell'originale).Pianta ripiegata, contenuta in una cartella editoriale che presenta qualche leggerissima abrasione e alcune piccole mancanze. [M500] Bellissima ristampa di una delle più celebri raffigurazioni cartografiche della città di Roma. Venne  pubblicata nel 1676 col titolo "Nuova pianta et alzata della città di Roma con tutte le strade, piazze et edificii de tempi, palazzi, giardini et altre fabbriche antiche e moderne come si trovano al presente nel pontificato di N.S. Papa Innocentio X con le loro dichiarationi nomi et indice copiosissimo". E' composta da dodici riquadri montati insieme su tela che compongono la pianta. Giovanni Battista Falda (Valduggia 1643 - Roma 1678). Uno dei massimi incisori della sua epoca. Nato in provincia di Vercelli, dimostrò presto inclinazione e capacità per il disegno. Venne quindi messo a bottega presso un pittore locale, e poi, a 14 anni, mandato a Roma presso uno zio che lo segnalò a Gian Lorenzo Bernini. Molto maggior rilievo ebbe tuttavia, nella formazione e nella successiva attività del giovane Falda, l'incontro con il tipografo Giovan Giacomo De Rossi titolare di una delle più note stamperie romane. Lì ebbe l'opportunità di affinare l'arte incisoria e con il suo mentore lavorò praticamente per tutta la sua breve vita.

      London : Printed for Peter Parker, 1676. - 1676 Burton Anatomy of Melancholy Depression Philosophy GOBLINS Superstition “The first psychiatric encyclopedia!” ‘The Anatomy of Melancholy’ by Robert Burton is one of the most famous works on the medical condition of melancholia, or clinical depression. Originally written in 1621, this book was composed with both medical and philosophical implications. Burton addresses cures and preventions but also the human emotion that comes with melancholy, both with the afflicted and those around them. Burton teases his audience and creates light of the disease in his preface by saying, “I write of melancholy by being buy to avoid melancholy.” (Eventhough it is commonly known, Burton wrote this book in hopes of writing himself out of depression.) Burton discusses more than just melancholy in this folio text. He writes of digestion, geography of America, and GOBLINS! So, while on the surface it appears as a medical text on melancholia, it serves as a book on many disciplines and philosophies. This book also happened to be one of Samuel Johnson’s most favorite books. He had been quoted as saying that, “[‘Melancholy’] was the only book that ever took [me] out of bed two hours sooner that [I] wished to rise” (Works of Samuel Johnson, vol 8, p89) This eighth edition was the final edition of ‘Melancholy’ published in the 17th-century. It is described as “the first psychiatric encyclopedia, citing 500 medical authors” (Garrison-Morton). This fine printing includes an illustrated, engraved title page by Christoffel Le Bron with images representing the different side effects of melancholy including Superstition, Solitude, Love, Hypochondirasis, and Jealousy (zelotypia), along with a portrait of Burton or ‘Democritus Junior’ which first appeared in 1628. Item number: #1235 Price: $2950 BURTON, Robert The anatomy of melancholy : what it is, with all the kind causes, symptomes, prognostickes, & severall cures of it, in three partitions, with their severall sections, members & subsections, philosophically, medicinally, historically, opened & London : Printed for Peter Parker, 1676. Details: • Collation complete with all pages: (2), 46, (6), 434, (8), (2) • Binding: Leather; tight & secure • References: Wing B 6184; Jordan Smith 8; Garrison-Morton 4918.1; ESTC R10536 • Provenance: Bookplate – Lord John Townshend o Lord John Townshend PC (19 January 1757 – 23 February 1833), styled The Honourable John Townshend until 1787, was a British Whig politician. o Townshend was the second son of Field Marshal George Townshend, 1st Marquess Townshend, by his first wife Charlotte Compton, 15th Baroness Ferrers of Chartley. George Townshend, 2nd Marquess Townshend, was his elder brother and Charles Townshend his uncle. He was educated at Eton and St John's College, Cambridge. o Townshend was elected to the House of Commons for Cambridge University in 1780, a seat he held until 1784, and later represented Westminster from 1788 to 1790 and Knaresborough from 1793 to 1818. He was admitted to the Privy Council in 1806 and served under Lord Grenville as Paymaster of the Forces (alongside Lord Temple) between 1806 and 1807. o Townshend married in 1787 Georgiana Anne Fawkener, daughter of William Poyntz, and the divorced wife of William Fawkener. Their elder son Charles Fox Townshend was the founder of the Eton Society but died young. Their younger son John became an admiral in the Royal Navy and succeeded his first cousin in the marquessate in 1855. Their daughter Elizabeth Frances Townshend (2 August 1789 –10 April 1862 Nice) married 20 October 1813 Captain Augustus Clifford R.N., later Sir Augustus Clifford, 1st Bt (1788-1877), illegitimate son of the 5th Duke of Devonshire and his mistress, Lady Elizabeth Foster, née Hervey, later the Duke's second wife (1811). Mrs Clifford became Lady Clifford in 1838 when her husband was raised to a baronetcy. Townshend died in February 1833, aged 76. Lady Georgiana Anne died in 1851. • Language: English • Size: ~12.75 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Hamisha Humshey Torah, Neviim u'Ktuvim Bilshon Ashkenaz. (The five books of Torah, Prophets and Writings in Yiddish).

      Amsterdam Uri Feivish HaLevi printer -1679 1676 - ff. [6], 54, [1], 56-63, [1], 64-193, [1], 195-256, [1], 18; stains and wear, worming, some professionally repaired. New colourful and elaborate leather binding with gilt ornaments, housed in a marbled cardboard slipcase. The first translation of the Old Testament into Yiddish. This translation was completed by Jekuthiel ben Isaac Blitz and features approbations by the rabbi of Va'ad Arba Artzot, as well as by Amsterdam Sephardi and Ashkenazi rabbis, dated 1671-1677. The King of Poland had to give special permission for this work to be printed, and his approval appears in Yiddish and Latin on the leaves preceding the title page. The 1670s in Amsterdam saw the simultaneous printing of two different Yiddish translations of the Bible: the present edition and another, published by Yossef Atias and translated by Joseph Witzenhausen (Yossef ben Alexander). This provoked a feud between the two printers, with mutual accusations of encroachment and the falsification of rabbinic approval. The resulting litigation caused the financial ruin of both printers. For further information regarding this scandal, see: A.M. Haberman, Chapters in the History of the Hebrew Printers, pp. 300-310. Vinograd, Amsterdam 424; Fuks 336; Darlow & Moule 4485.

         A New Mappe of the Romane Empire

      newly described by John Speed and are to be sold by Tho: Basett in Fleet Street & Ric: Chiswell in St.Pauls Churchyard. [1676] - Copper engraved with hand colour 390 x 505 mm A superb example of Speed's carte-a-figure map of the Roman Empire at its height, from his 'Prospect Of The Most Famous Parts Of The World.' The map centres on the Mediterranean Sea, dividing Europe, North Africa, and Western Asia into their Roman era provinces, as well as depicting adjoining kingdoms and regions. The borders of the Roman provinces are outlined in hand colour, and feature anglicised versions of their original Latin names. Ancient cities and settlements are picked out in red, and sea coasts and mountain ranges are also highlighted in hand colour. The map is further embellished with a pair of lions in Nubia, an ostrich and leopard below a camel train in ancient Tingitania (Morocco), and a pair of sea monsters, a ship, and a naval battle in the Atlantic. In the top right corner, a strapwork cartouche encloses the title, while a larger box cartouche at the bottom of the plate contains a lengthy description of the history of the growth of the Roman empire. Like other carte-a-figures maps, this example features three decorative borders. To the left and right, five pairs of male and female figures show the manner of dress of the various peoples that inhabit the former Roman empire. In seventeenth century habit are Spaniards, Italians, Tyrians, Egyptians, and Moroccans. In the top border are a set of six oval-bordered views of principal cities: Rome, Genoa, Jerusalem, Venice, Constantinople, and Alexandria, as well as a pair of portrait roundels in the form of Roman coins depicting the goddess Roma and the eponymous founder of the Empire, Romulus. John Speed (1552-1629) is the most famous of all English cartographers primarily as a result of 'The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine', the first atlas of the British Isles. The maps from this atlas are the best known and most sought-after of all county maps. The maps were derived mainly from the earlier prototypes of Christopher Saxton and Robert Norden but with notable improvements including parish "Hundreds" and county boundaries, town plans and embellishments such as the coats of arms of local Earls, Dukes, and the Royal Household. The maps are famed for their borders consisting of local inhabitants in national costume and panoramic vignette views of major cities and towns. An added feature is that regular atlas copies have English text printed on the reverse, giving a charming description of life in the early seventeenth century of the region. The overall effect produced very decorative, attractive and informative maps. Speed was born in 1552 at Farndon, Cheshire. Like his father before him he was a tailor by trade, but around 1582 he moved to London. During his spare time Speed pursued his interests of history and cartography and in 1595 his first map of Canaan was published in the "Biblical Times". This raised his profile and he soon came to the attention of poet and dramatist Sir Fulke Greville a prominent figure in the court of Queen Elizabeth. Greville as Treasurer of the Royal Navy gave Speed an appointment in the Customs Service giving him a steady income and time to pursue cartography. Through his work he became a member of such learned societies as the Society of Antiquaries and associated with the likes of William Camden Robert Cotton and William Lambarde. He died in 1629 at the age of seventy-seven. Condition: Strong impression with fine hand colour. Pressed central fold, as issued.

Le tavole, delineate con precisione, sono dedicate prevalentemente agli strumenti di lavoro e si rivelano di grande importanza per la conoscenza delle tecniche costruttive del tempo. André Felibien (1619-1695) compose quest'opera al suo ritorno da Roma, dove passò vari anni a studiare gli elementi della classicità e dove venne a contatto con gli uomini più eminenti in campo artistico e letterario. Di lui si ricorda anche l'opera: Entretiens sur les vies et sur les ouvrages des plus excellents peintres anciens et modernes.
