Fint exemplar av den första svenska utgåvan av Rimberts Ansgarsbiografi.

Både Rimberts text och Gualdos dikt hade upptäckts av Petrus Lambeck i klostret Saint Germaine des Prés och han lät publicera dem 1652. Dessa båda texter har Arrhenius tryckt av med obetydliga tillägg. Den svenska texten är medeltida och återfanns i den s.k. Nådendals klosterbok som Elias Brenner påträffat i Finland och överlämnat till Antikvitetskollegiet. Arrhenius upptäckte att det var en tidigare översättning av den av Lambeck utgivna texten och lät den då ingå i denna utgåva. Claes Arrhenius adlades Örnhielm 1684. Daniel Georg Neschers (1753-1827) bibliotek var särdeles starkt i svensk historia och det skulle efter honom säljas på auktion i Stockholm 1828, men förvärvades istället av Kungliga biblioteket. Därifrån har denna sålts som dubblett, troligen på 1831 års stora dubblettförsäljning.

        Der aufs Neu-verschantzte Turenne oder gründlich alt- und neue Kriegs-Bau-Kunst.Frankfurt and Leipzig, widow of Reinhard Wächtler, printed by Christoph Balthasar Lampe, 1690. Oblong 8vo (11 x 17 cm). With engraved frontispiece and 32 engraved plates. Contemporary calf.

      Jähns, pp. 1373-1374; Sloos, Warfare 08062; VD17, 23:313315R (4 copies, 3 lacking the plates); WorldCat (14 copies, many incomplete). Rare second edition, complete with all the preliminaries and engravings, of a detailed practical handbook of fortification design. This second edition, revised and improved by the author, emphasizes the new advances in fortification introduced in the Netherlands. The first edition, published in 1677, was in itself a reworking of Christoph Nottnagel's popular Manuale Fortificatorium from 1659. Like its predecessors, Der aufs Neu-verschantzte Turenne was published in "pocket" size, although "coat pockets were large at that time" (Jähns). In his introduction, Behr gives his reasons for naming his treatise after the French marshal Turenne and not after some German prince or general. The title should be understood to be anti-French, and implies that although the French were renowned for their military science, there was so much engineering talent to be found in the German states that Turenne would lock himself in a fortress in fear (*2v).Binding damaged at the extremities with the hinges cracked, back cover with restored fold and ca. 3 cm of the backstrip missing. Text browned and with some spots and wormholes at the lower outer corner of pp. 385-422; a fair copy.

Folio, pp. [xvi], 507, [xxxvii] + 22 plates as called for including four leaves containing 520 coats of arms plus the separate slip of eight further coats of arms, which are bound after the Preface rather than at the rear amongst the indices as indicated in Upcott. Imprimatur leaf followed by title-page in red and black, copious illustrations and genealogical tables in the text, woodcut initials and head-pieces.

Mid-20th-century reback on 19th-century boards, mottled brown calf, spine heavily gilt, plain gilt borders, edges coloured red, endpapers renewed. Some significant surface loss due to insect damage at upper joint and a few other smaller patches, lightly scratched and shelf worn, front endpaper split at hinge but board holding firm. A very good copy.Robert Thoroton (1623-1678) 'commenced his Antiquities of Nottinghamshire in 1667. He first worked on some transcript notes which his father-in-law Gilbert Boun had made from Domesday Book. He assisted Sir William Dugdale in his Visitation of Nottinghamshire, 1662-1664. For his researches he employed paid assistants at considerable expense to himself, delving into family archives, registers (some now lost), estate papers, church monuments, and epitaphs. Like a number of county antiquaries he was little concerned with his own times, or indeed with his own century, but tried to trace the manorial history of each parish back to Domesday. He showed little interest in Roman remains, while protesting at enclosure and destruction of woods. His notes, made on the back of letters from his patients in Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, and Derbyshire, are now in Nottingham Public Library. The folio volume of Thoroton's Antiquities was printed in London in 1677, illustrated with engravings by Hollar after Richard Hall and dedicated to Gilbert Sheldon, archbishop of Canterbury, and Dugdale, both personal friends. Dugdale wrote to the antiquary Sir Daniel Fleming, 'Dr Thoroton's book cost me 16s to 18s. I do esteem the book well worth your buying, though had he gone to the fountain of records it might have been better done' (1 Sept 1677, Le Fleming MSS, 139-40). John Throsby published a reprint of Antiquities with additions, in three volumes (published 1790-96 but dated 1797).' (ODNB)

        1677 Sir Walter Raleigh World History Rome Egypt Trojan Punic War Atlas Maps

      London : Printed for Robert White, T. Basset, F. Wright, R. Chiswell, G. Dawes, and T. Sawbridge, 1677. - 1677 Sir Walter Raleigh World History Rome Egypt Trojan Punic War Atlas Maps “The designs and style of Raleigh’s ‘History of the World’ places the book among the noblest of literary enterprises” - DNB Sir Walter Raleigh, a 16th-century English explorer and writer, is most known for his South American voyage in hopes of discovering the ‘City of Gold’. While imprisoned for treason, he composed his famous book ‘History of the World’ – a historical view of the world with a heavy emphasis on geography. Even though the work was written as a history book, Raleigh intended to provide advice to King James I of England on how to handle his reign and his feelings toward princes. This 1677 early edition includes a life of the author, which is attributed to John Shirley (Brushfield). Brushfield continues on this work: “After its publication in 1614, the king endeavored to suppress it. This was not carried into effect, as the work was published [and] three separate issues of it appeared the same year. But [the first] and the second edition of 1617 were destitute of [printed] title-pages; and as these alone contained the name of the author, the work was virtually anonymous” This work covers five distinct sections, each of which is charmingly illustrated with city views, maps, and plans by William Hole: • Creation of the world through life of Abraham • Abraham through the destruction of Solomon’s Temple • Fall of Jerusalem to Philip of Macedonia • Reign of Philip to rise of Antigonus • Rule of Alexander the Great through Roman conquests Item number: #1964 Price: $1750 RALEIGH, Sir Walter The history of the world : in five books. The first, intreating of the beginning and first ages of the same, from the creation unto Abraham. The second, of the times from the birth of Abraham to the destruction of the Temple of Solomon. The third, from the destruction of Jerusalem to the time of Philip of Macedon. The fourth, from the reign of Philip of Macedon, to the establishing of that kingdom in the race of Antigonus. The fifth, from the settled rule of Alexander's successours in the East, until the Romans (prevailing over all) made conquest of Asia and Macedon. London : Printed for Robert White, T. Basset, F. Wright, R. Chiswell, G. Dawes, and T. Sawbridge, 1677.

        Resolves : Divine, Moral, Political. The Tenth Impression. With New and Several other Additions Both In Prose and Verse Not Extant in the fomer Impressions.

      Clark and Harper London 1677 - Small folio; [16],364,99. Added engraved title page and "Face of The Book" leaf present. Full contemporary calf, the corners worn, a lighter calf respine with raised bands and two black lettering pieces. Prelims a trifle dusty or browned. A G-VG copy with the engraved bookplate of Sir Charles Wolseley, Bart, Member of Parliament in the Commonwealth period. Owen Feltham (1602 – February 23, 1668) was an English writer, author of Resolves, Divine, Moral, and Political (c. 1620), containing 146 short essays. It had great popularity in its day. Feltham was for a time in the household of the Earl of Thomond as chaplain or sec., and published (1652), Brief Character of the Low Countries. His most cited essay is "How the Distempers of these Times should affect wise Men" which was selected for inclusion in John Gross' The Oxford Book of Essays, a compilation of over a hundred of the finest essays in the English language. Feltham was still a teenager when he published his first edition of Resolves in 1623. This collection of essays played a crucial role in the development of the English essay as a genre. The original edition included 100 "resolves" that were considered to be "short, aphoristic commentaries on aspects of the three realms delineated by the title: divine, ethical, and political [and] they concern[ed] in equal measure the private and public realms of middle-class English life." Later revisions reflect how Feltham attempted to amalgamate these three distinct dimensions of "middle-class English life"—divine, ethical and political—into a more cohesive context. Or, in other words, the revisions reflect " ‘the expansion of aphorisms into statements that approach conversation’ [which] corresponds to a more tolerant humanism." This tolerance is perhaps best demonstrated in regards to the ubiquitous Woman Question, a debate which continued to play a large role in the social atmosphere of Renaissance Britain. Both men and women joined in the debate, and though unsurprisingly most men viewed the fairer sex in rigid terms—as either "unconstant" or "excellent"—there were many men like Feltham who preferred to "[accept] some assumptions about gender but [question] many others: he asks commonsense questions and is willing to look beyond stereotypes." In his 1661 edition of Resolves, Feltham’s 85th resolve, entitled "Of Marriage and Single Life," he exhibits a particularly progressive social and sexual ideology: "A wise wife comprehends both sexes: she is a woman for her body, and she is a man within: for her soul is like her Husbands. It is a Crown of blessings, when in one woman a man findeth both a wife and a friend." In his 1628 edition, which includes the resolve entitled "Of Woman," Feltham observes the social disparities of his time in regards to gender equality. Though does not offer any solutions, he again makes incredibly astute commentary that could be considered a type of proto-feminist or proto-egalitarianist philosophy: "Whence proceed the most abhorred villainies, but from a masculine unblushing impudence? When a woman grows bold and daring, we dislike her, and say, ‘she is too like a man’: yet in our selves, we magnify what we condemn. Is not this injustice?" (Wiki) [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Curious Distillatory

      London: Printed by J.D. for Robert Boulter, 1677 17th Century Classic on Distillation. First edition in English. Elsholtz (1623-1688), who studied at Padua, was physician to Elector Friedrich Wilhelm and director of the botanical garden at Brandenburg. He was a pioneer in hygiene and nutrition, emphasizing the importance of personal cleanliness and clean air, water, food, and drink. His published works include a study of physiognomy (he coined the term "anthropometry") and its health implications, a chemical treatise on phosphorous, contributions to the Ephemerides of the Academia, and a study of intravenous injection and blood transfusions. Thorndike, in A History of Magic and Experimental Science, calls Elsholtz a man with "broad medical and scientific interest and experimental tendencies." Thomas Sherley, physician in ordinary to Charles II, translated this first English edition from the Latin edition (Berlin, 1674). Distillation was an essential tool for scientists of the late seventeenth century. The process separates compounds by means of their differing boiling points. The frontispiece, engraved from that used in the Latin edition, shows a typical seventeenth-century distillation laboratory, with the air-cooled alembic atop a large furnace from which steam escapes. Provenance: John Prince, signatures dated 1699 and 1730, among other markings on endpapers. Wing E638. Duveen 192. Ferguson 238. Small 8vo. Frontispiece of a distilling installation, engraving of the "clove- cinnamon" plant from America. C3 supplied from another copy, rear inner hinge loose. Original 17th-century blind- ruled calf (some chipping exposing boards) complete with ties. Very good. Half morocco case.

        Opera Posthuma. Quorum series post Praefationem exhibetur.

      [Amsterdam: Jan Rieuwertsz], 1677. First edition, and a very fine copy, of Spinoza's Opera Posthuma which "have served, then and since, with the Tractatus Theologico-Politicus, to immortalize his name" (PMM 153). The first work in the volume is "Spinoza's one indisputable masterpiece, the Ethics" (Bennett, A Study of Spinoza's Ethics, p. 7). The first and "principal work in the Opera Posthuma is Spinoza's Ethics, in which Spinoza bridged the Cartesian duality of body and spirit by maintaining that the universe, including God, constitutes a unified infinite and all-inclusive 'Substance,' of which corporeality and spirituality were merely attributes - a unity expressed in the controversial phrase 'Deus sive Natura' (God or Nature). Ethics is thus considered the first systematic exposition of pantheism, the philosophy in which God is identified with the entire universe" (Norman 1988). "Baruch (or Benedictus) Spinoza is one of the most important philosophers - and certainly the most radical - of the early modern period. His thought combines a commitment to Cartesian metaphysical and epistemological principles with elements from ancient Stoicism and medieval Jewish rationalism into a nonetheless highly original system. His extremely naturalistic views on God, the world, the human being and knowledge serve to ground a moral philosophy centered on the control of the passions leading to virtue and happiness. They also lay the foundations for a strongly democratic political thought and a deep critique of the pretensions of Scripture and sectarian religion. Of all the philosophers of the seventeenth-century, perhaps none have more relevance today than Spinoza" (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). "Born in Amsterdam to a distinguished family of Sephardic exiles from Spain, Spinoza (1632-77) early absorbed all the theological and philosophical knowledge that the rabbis of his community were able to impart. Latin he learnt from an eccentric physician of materialistic tendencies, which brought him into contact with Giordano Bruno and Descartes. From this followed his break with Jewish orthodoxy, and the excommunication imposed upon him on 27 July 1656. From then on Spinoza, adopting the Latin form Benedict of his birth name Baruch, led a wandering life. Like all his Jewish contemporaries, he had learnt a handicraft: the grinding of lenses. In this, as in the theory of optics, he showed great ability. His lenses were in considerable demand, and his skill brought him into contact with Huygens and Leibniz: a tract on the rainbow, long thought to be lost, was published as recently as 1862. Thus Spinoza was able to support himself as the guest of a friend, a member of the Collegiants, an Armenian religious community, in the country outside Amsterdam out of reach of his late co-religionists, and to devote himself to concentrated thought and study. There he found himself the centre of a small philosophical club, which, originally meeting to study Cartesian philosophy, eventually parted company with Descartes; it was for them, in all probability, that Spinoza wrote his 'Ethics'" (PMM). "[M]ost likely in the spring of 1662, Spinoza took up his pen to begin what would be his philosophical masterpiece, the 'Ethics' (Ethica) ... [I]n essence, a treatise on "God, man and His Well-Being," the "Ethics" was an attempt to provide a fuller, clearer, and more systematic layout in "the geometric style" for his grand metaphysical and moral project. He worked on it steadily for a number of years, through his move to Voorburg in 1663 and on into the summer of 1665. He envisioned at this point a three-part work, and seems to have had a fairly substantial draft in hand by June 1665. He felt confident enough of what he had written so far to allow a select few to read it, and there were Latin and even Dutch (translated by Pieter Balling) copies of the manuscript circulating among his friends. We do not know how close to a final product Spinoza considered this draft of the 'Ethics' when he put it aside, probably in the fall of 1665 ... At the time he probably saw it as mostly complete but in need of polishing. It would be a good number of years, though, before Spinoza returned to his metaphysical-moral treatise to put the finishing touches on it, which included significant additions and revisions, no doubt in the light of further reading and reflection" (Nadler, Spinoza's Ethics. An Introduction, p. 15). "In 1675 he contemplated publishing his 'Ethics,' but baseless rumours, later idly repeated by Hume, of his atheism, decided him against it. On 20 February 1677 he died of consumption and his funeral was attended by a devoted and distinguished gathering" (PMM). Immediately after his death, his friends arranged the publication of his Ethics, together with his other unpublished writings, in Opera Posthuma. It was edited by one of Spinoza's closest friends, Jarig Jelles. The Ethics is followed in the volume by four other works: Tractatus de intellectus emendatione, a preliminary work to the Ethics, "written probably before Spinoza was thirty years old, is important not only historically, as showing how gradually and consecutively what he had to tell the world was revealed to him, but also for its own intrinsic worth" (Hale-White (translator), Tractatus de intellectus emendation (1895), p. 2). "The Tractatus is an attempt to formulate a philosophical method that would allow the mind to form the clear and distinct ideas that are necessary for its perfection. It contains, in addition, reflection upon the various kinds of knowledge, an extended treatment of definition, and a lengthy analysis of the nature and causes of doubt" (Wikipedia). The unfinished Tractatus politicus "is a fitting sequel to the Ethics. Whereas the Ethics reveals the path to individual freedom, the Tractatus politicus reveals the extent to which individual freedom depends on civil institutions. We should not be surprised to find Spinoza to be civic-minded. From his earliest writings, he claims that he is concerned not just to perfect his own nature but also "to form a society of the kind that is desirable, so that as many as possible may attain [a flourishing life] as easily and surely as possible." The Tractatus politicus may be seen as Spinoza's attempt to articulate some of the conditions for the possibility of such a society" (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). A collection of 74 Epistolae, letters from and to Spinoza. "The letters are an invaluable source of information about Spinoza's life, his network of friends and acquaintances, and his works. The reason for writing the Tractatus Theologico-Politicus is explained in Ep. 30, and in many letters Spinoza responds to criticisms or enquiries about his views on religion ... The correspondence also reflects how Spinoza's contemporaries worried about the ethical and religious implications of his philosophy, and documents the variety of subjects that were discussed under the heading of philosophy: planets (Ep. 26), hydrostatics (Ep. 41), nitre (Ep. 6, 13), probability calculus (Ep. 38). Spinoza's expertise in lens-grinding is apparent in discussions of lenses, telescopes, optics and dioptrics (Ep. 26, 32, 36, 39, 40, 46)" (The Bloomsbury Companion to Spinoza, p. 359). "The fifth and final work in Spinoza's Opera Posthuma (with its own title page, pagination, and errata) is a Grammar of the Hebrew Language, Compendium Grammaticus Lingua Hebraeae. Spinoza was one of the first to subject the Bible to critical analysis but demanded that such analysis be rooted in a thorough understanding of the Hebrew language. Then, and only then, Spinoza states, may one turn to 'the life, the conduct and the pursuits of the author of each book ... [and] the fate of each book: how it was first received, into whose hands it fell, how many different versions there were of it, by whose advice it was received into the Canon, and how all the books now universally accepted as sacred, were united into a single whole'" (jewishvirtuallibrary.org). See PMM 153; Brunet V, 492; Caillet 10309; Kingma & Offenberg 24; Norman 1988; Van der Linde 22 (apparently lacking the separate half-titles for Ethica and Compendium Grammatices Linguæ Hebrææ, which are present in our copy); Wolf Collection 378. 4to, pp. [40], 614, [34], 112, [8], with woodcut vignette on title.

      - Jena u. Helmstedt, 1677-92. 4to. Pergament d. Zeit mit neuem Rückentitel (fleckig, Rückdeckel wasserrandig, sporfleckig u. mit ergänzter Fehlstelle). Nach Studien in Jena, Leipzig u. Leiden sowie einer fünfjährigen Peregrinatio academica erwarb Schelhammer 1677 unter Vorsitz des Jenaer Mediziners G. W. Wedel den Doktortitel. Schon 2 Jahre später wurde er als Professor an die Universität Helmstedt berufen, kehrte 1689 nach Jena zurück u. folgte schließlich 1695 einem Ruf an die Universität Kiel. "Schelhammer war nicht bloß ein gelehrter Arzt, sondern auch ein tüchtiger Naturforscher. Er hat botanische, chemische, physikalische und rein medizinische Arbeiten in beträchtlicher Zahl veröffentlicht" (ADB XXX, 756). Als Vertreter der iatrochemischen Lehren de la Boes suchte er "deren Verschmelzung mit dem Cartesianismus anzubahnen" (Hirsch-H. V, 62).

        CE QUE DOIT CONSIDERER UN ESCOLIER, lorsqu'il choisit un maistre de quelque profession que ce soit.

      s.l.n.d. (17e siècle). - MANUSCRIT in-4. 54pp. 2ff. Plein vélin souple du temps. Très beau manuscrit ancien de l'opuscule anonyme composé "par un des plus habiles Ecuyers de ce temps" et qui fut souvent rajouté à partir de 1677 aux éditions du Parfait Maréchal de Solleysel, sous le titre "Abrégé de l'art de monter à cheval". Ce manuscrit, dont le texte diffère sensiblement de la version imprimée, semble accréditer l'idée que l'ouvrage fit l'objet d'une diffusion sous forme manuscrite avant d'être imprimé à la suite du livre de Solleysel. Soigneusement calligraphié, il se divise en 27 chapitres et d'une table des matières (contre 37 chapitres sans table des matières dans la version imprimée). "Quel doit estre un homme de la profession de monter à cheval", "Quelles sont les qualitez requises à un bon home de cheval", "La disposition que doit avoir celuy qui veut embrasser la profession de monter à cheval", "Ce qu'il faut que sçache un escolier touchant le harnois de son cheval", "Ce que c'est que maneige", "Ce que c'est que volte", "Ce que c'est que passade", "Du beau cheval", "Connoissance certaine de l'age du cheval jusques a la fin de sa vie", etc. Bel exemplaire dans son vélin d'origine.

      London: Robert White et al, 1677. Hardcover. Very good. [44], 54 [48], 885 [854], [46] p. 38 cm. Frontisportrait and decorations.

This work was written by Sir Walter Raleigh, famous English explorer, during his imprisonment in the Tower of London from 1603 to 1616. Raleigh, who had established the lost colony of Roanoke in present-day North Carolina and headed several expeditions to South America, was arrested upon the death of Queen Elizabeth I and imprisoned by King James I, with whom he was highly unpopular. Having nothing better to do while imprisoned, he began this History of the World, intended to outline historical events from creation to modern times, drawing on the Bible, Greek mythology, and other sources. Raleigh dedicated his work to the king's son, Prince Henry, who was trying to secure his release from prison. As Prince Henry put it: "Only my father would keep such a bird in such a cage." The prince's death at the age of 18 in 1612 discouraged Sir Walter, so that his history ends abruptly with the second Macedonian War instead of continuing through two more volumes as originally intended. Given the precarious political situation and restrictions on writing about contemporary history, many writers at the time used ancient history as a way to covertly discuss issues occurring in their own day. Although ostensibly a recounting of historical facts, Raleigh's work also included commentary that was construed by King James to be critical of his court. Several months after publication, King James ordered further sales of the book suppressed and all unsold copies to be confiscated "for being too saucy in censuring Princes." Raleigh was released from the Tower in 1616 to lead one final expedition to South America, but he attacked a Spanish outpost in violation of a peace treaty, and King James found reason to have him beheaded in 1618. This 1677 edition of The History of the World includes "The Life of Sir Walter Raleigh," "The Arraignment of Sir Walter Raleigh," and an engraved frontisportrait. At rear are "To the Reader," "A Chronological Table" and "The Alphabetical Table to the Principal Contents." The book is illustrated with folding maps and battle plans.

        Contemporary Manuscript of the fortification-works of Dunkirk, St. Omer, and French Flanders during the period 1677 - 1685.

      manuscript: 17th century. 8vo (20,0 x 15,8 cm). 221, (26 blanks), (5), (3 blanks), (1) pp. Contemporary full polished calf, gilt-decorated spine with gilt-lettered red morocco label, marbled endpapers. An important and highly interesting manuscript illustrating the military history of French Flanders in the 2nd half of the 17th century, especially the history and development of the French fortification-system and -works in that region during the years 1677 - 1685, after the French advancement in the Spanish Low Countries. To consolidate the French conquests, a chain of fortifications was built in northern France and southern Flanders. Three persons were responsible for creating this "iron frontier": Vauban, Louvois and Louis XIV. Sebastien Le Pestre, Seigneur de Saint-Léger Vauban [1633 - 1707] was the ingenious designer of all plans. Apart from an account of the siege of Luxembourg and 3 traits on fortifications and military buildings, the manuscript contains 17 copies of notarial writings, meticulously and neatly described, very legible, concerning the contraction of fortification-works, mainly at Dunkirk, St. Omer. These documents describe in a very specific and detailed manner the conditions of the building contracts, the materials to be used, the size and structure of the projects &c, the period of time to complete the works and the financial conditions. Covers with some scratches, joints bit chafed, corners bumped, marbled paper on frontal inner hinge strengthened, otherwise very well-kept. We join a 76-page booklet providing the index and the abbreviated contents of the manuscript, preceded by an illustrated introduction of the historical regional political situation related to the manuscript: Dunkirk, Flanders, Vauban and Louis XIV. An important, very legible, manuscript providing a fascinating insight into the design and execution of the military policy of Louis XIV during a decisive period of his reign.
