         Beschreibung ihrer Reise nach Spanien. (Übers. von Johann Job).

      Fritsch,, Leipzig. 1696 - 2 Bde. Mit gestoch. Front.-Portr. u. 16 (2 gefalt.) Kupfertafeln (darunter 1 doppelblattgr. Darstellung eines Stierkampfes) von D. Schoonebeck. 12°. 3 Bll., 533 S.; 2 Bll., 476 S. Titel in Rot-Schwarz-Druck. Palau 19572; Griep/Pelz 29; Fromm I, 1185. - Die französische Schriftstellerin Comtesse d'Aunoy (1650-1705) vermittelt in ihren romanhaften Briefen ein anschauliches und kulturgeschichtlich interessantes Bild vom Leben in Spanien am Ende des 17. Jahrhunderts. "Sie war eine gebildete Aristokratin und hatte Zutritt zu Kreisen, in denen sich 'ein männlicher Reisender nicht leicht zeigen darf'. Obwohl sie über den Adel berichtete, erfährt die Leserschaft dennoch eine Menge über den Alltag des einfachen Volkes" (Pytlik, Die schöne Fremde). - "Ses contes offrent un mélange de naiveté et de finesse, qui en rend la lecture agréable" (Nouv. Biogr. Gén. III, 744). - Die Tafeln zeigen Szenen aus dem gesellschaftlichen Leben der Spanier, in Band 2 9 Porträttafeln. - 1 Tafel lose, Band 2 mit Wurmgängen und -löchern im unteren Rand. Restaur. Ldr. d. Zt. auf 4 Bünden, mit goldgepr. Wappensupralibros. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Der hochwichtige Articul Von der Wiedergeburt, Dero Ursachen, Mittel, Art, Pflichten, Würden, Kennzeichen und übrigen dahin gehörigen Materialien / auß unterschiedlichen Texten Heil. Schrift In 66 Wochen-Predigten Der Christlichen Gemeinde zu S. Nicolai in Berlin, Durch GOttes Gnade vorgetragen, und Auff Christlicher Freunde Ansuchen zum Druck gegeben.

      Franckfurt am Main, in verlegung Johann David Zunners 1696 - (16), 1052 (recte 1060), (4) Seiten. Frakturdruck. Schwarz-roter Titel. Bircher C2483. - Grünberg 63. - VD17, 1:020995K. - Der ordentliche Pergamentband vor allem am Hinterdeckel gering fleckig und etwas berieben. Auf dem Vorderdeckel Abdruck eines Wasserglases und verblasste ältere Tintenspuren. - Innen durchgehend leicht gebräunt, Vorsatz stärker. - Insgesamt gutes und sauberes Exemplar der für die pietistischen Glaubensinhalte eminent wichtigen Wiedergeburtspredigten, die den Buß- und Bekehrungsweg der Gläubigen vom verlorenen Sünder über den reuigen Büßer bis hin zum wiedergeborenen Christen illustrieren und somit eine sehr persönliche "subtilitas applicandi" pietistischer Bibelhermaneutik bilden. Mit der Wiedergeburt des geistlichen Menschen ist nach Spener die Vergebung der Sünden und der Beginn eines gottgefälligen Lebens verbunden; freilich kann der Wiedergeborene dieses Lebens wieder verlustig gehen; die ständige Prüfung der eigenen Rechtgläubigkeit ist damit ein kontinuierlicher, nicht endender und mühevoller Prozess. - Das Leitbild des "Wiedergeborenen" und dessen "praxis pietatis" ist das zentrale Motiv der pietistischen Erweckungs-Bewegung, verlagert den Begriff von rechtem Glauben in den Bereich der innerlichen Erlebniswirklichkeit und befördert damit die Introspektion, die Selbst-Vergewisserung und letztlich damit die Aufklärung (als "Ausgang des Menschen aus seiner selbstverschuldeten Unmündigkeit") bis hin zur Empfindsamkeit und sentimentalischen Dichtung des 18. Jahrhunderts. - Selten, zumal in diesem guten Zustand. - Zu Spener (1635), einem der produktivsten und innovativsten Theologen des 17. Jahrhunderts und Begründer des Pietismus, vgl. RE XVIII, 609ff. - BBKL X, 909ff. - TRE XXXI, 652ff, "Spener hat, abgesehen von einer zweijährigen Unterbrechung 1675/76, seine Predigten wörtlich ausgearbeitet. Auf der Kanzel spontan zugefügte Passagen hat er als vom Heiligen Geist eingegeben angesehen und unmittelbar nach dem Gottesdienst in sein Manuskript eingetragen. Es gibt keinen zweiten deutschenprotestantischen Theologen ähnlicher Bedeutung, von dem so viele Predigten bekannt und zu großen Teilen gedruckt überliefert sind. Ein vollständiger Catalogus, von Spener selbst aufgesetzt (gedruckt 1715), führt 3.005 Predigten auf [.] Neben diese im sonntäglichen Hauptgottesdienst gehaltenen Predigten treten Wochenpredigten aus der Berliner Zeit, die deutlicher an einen kleineren Kreis ernster Christen gerichtet sind und dadurch stärker pietistisches Gepräge habe: Der hochwichtige Articul von der Wiedergeburt (1696)". Contemporary vellum slightly stained and rubbed, a little browned throughout. Overall a good and clean copy of the very scarce first edition. Of great importance for the developement of protestant spirituality and the growth of the evangelical movements until today. Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 1500 8° (21 x 16,5 cm).

         De Rebus a Carolo Gustavo Sveciæ Rege Gestis commentariorum libri septem. Elegantissimis Tabulis æneis exornati cum triplici Indice.

      Nürnberg, Christophorus Riegel Literis Knorzianis, 1696. Folio. (35 x 23 cm.). Contemporary full mottled calf with richly gilt spine and 6 raised bands. Capitals re-enforced/repaired. An excellent, sturdy, and tight binding. A few leaves with a bit of dusting, but overall remarkably nice, clean and bright. Half-title. (8), 626, 53, (9), (2) pp. Engraved allegorical frontispiece (by Jean Boulanger after D.K. Ehrenstrahl), 12 engraved portraits and 115 fine engraved plates (numbered up to 112, some numbers omitted, some unnumbered, some double-numbered, complete). Some of the plates folded three times and the plate with the view of Stockholm showing the procession of the funeral of Carl X Gustav is printed from 13 plates, 450 cm. long. An excellent copy. ¶ Scarce first edition - in Latin - of this profusely illustrated work on the Swedish Wars, which also appeared in translations into German and French. The writing of this official history of the Swedish Wars with Poland and Denmark from 1655 to 1660 was entrusted by the King Charles XI to Samuel Pufendorf, the famous and important German jurist, political philosopher, economist, statesman and historian, who was made a baron in 1694, shortly before he died. He has played a great role in the development of the philosophy of law and political history. His famous work on the Swedish Wars is also famed for its impressive and excellent illustrations, -not least the 450 cm. long procession-plate. To illustrate the history, use was made of the original drawings by Erik Dahlberg, the Quarter-Master general of the Swedish Army, who was an eye-witness. The drawings were engraved by the same artists that Dahlbergh employed in Paris and later in Sweden for his "Suecia Antiqua", e.g. Boulanger, Cochin, Jean le Pautre, Perelle etc. etc. It includes views from Poland, Denmark, Germany and Norway. It is easy to trace the influence of Callot, as well as of Rubens in these splendid Cavalry scenes. - Swedish Books No 38 - Warmholtz: 4840.

The disk is set into an architectural caprice with a windhead on either side.

"This tragi-comedy, which is based on a novel of the same name by Mrs. Behn, was a huge success on the stage and still retains much of its power. It continued to hold the boards in either the original or altered form for more than a century. The epilogue was written by Congreve, the prologue by an unknown hand. According to Cibber, the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, subsisted for several years on the success of this and two or three other plays" (Pforzheimer). The success of the play led to demand for a new edition of Behn's novel, published in 1696. ESTC R12217; Pforzheimer 959; Sabin, 88519.

Nella quale si contiene quanto di più scelto vien scritto da' Letterati per lo più viventi in ogni materia sagra e profana, con molte rare e curiose notizie, insegnamenti segreti di varie materie e figure in rame. Anno primo.

      Venezia, Nella Stamp. Hermol-Albrizziana 0 - In 12° (170x93 mm); pp. 24, 12, 20, 72, 68, 12, 20. Con una incisione al frontespizio e diverse piccole incisioni di monete antiche. Cartone coevo con titolo manoscritto al dorso. Piccolo macchia ad una carta con minima perdita di testo, ma nel complesso ottima copia in barbe. Rara edizione originale del primo numero di questa rivista scientifico-letteraria intitolata "Galleria di Minerva riaperta", che seguì la più celebre "Galleria di Minerva", pubblicata in sette volumi tra il 1696 e il 1717 da Girolamo Albrizzi. Una seconda edizione apparve l'anno seguente, nel 1725 (cf. M. Infelise, Editoria veneziana nel "700, Milano, 1989, p. 41; M. Berengo, Giornali veneziani del Settecento, Milano, 1962, p. XV). La "Galleria di Minerva" raccoglie gli atti della "Società Albrizziana", fondata da Almorò Albrizzi, figlio di Girolamo, nel 1724. La prima sezione è dedicata alla storia naturale. La seconda edizione contiene una lettera, inviata da Giuseppe Lanzoni a Antonio Astori, sul caviale e sulla bottarga, che secondo l'autore erano già in uso presso gli antichi. Le sezioni successive sono dedicate alle monete antiche, alla letteratura e alla poesia. Almorò (Ermolao) Albrizzi nacque a Venezia nel 1695 da una famiglia di tipografi ed editori. Viaggiò a lungo prima di occuparsi dell'attività del padre. L'"Accademia" o "Società Albrizziana" fu per diversi anni un importante punto di riferimento culturale a Venezia (nel 1744 l'Accademia fu trasferita a Roma, dove rimase attiva fino al 1749) (cf. M. Maylender, Storia delle Accademie d'Italia, Bologna, 1926, I, pp. 111-125). Albrizzi riuscì a combinare brillantemente capacità letterarie, erudizione e capacità imprenditoriali. Numerose furono le sue pubblicazioni, tra le quali numerosi periodici (cf. G. Cinelli-Calvoli, Biblioteca volante, Venezia, 1734, I, pp. 22-25). Morì a Forlì nel 1764 (cf. I. Parenzo, Almorò Albrizzi e la Società letteraria universale Albrizziana, in: "Rivista letteraria", VII, Udine, 1935, no. 5, pp. 20-28).

         De synagoga vetere libri tres: quibus tum de nominibus, structurâ, origine, præfectis, ministris, & sacris synagogarum, agitur; tum præcipue, formam regiminis & ministerii earum in ecclesiam christianam translatam esse, demonstratur: cum prolegomenis. 2 vols bound in one (Complete)

      Franequerae (Franeker): Johannis Gyzelaar, 1696. Second edition. Hardcover. g- to vg. Octavo (8 1/4 x 6 1/2"). Vol. 1: [32], 256, 253-608 p.; Vol. 2: [8], [609]-1138, [38]pp. Contemporary full vellum with handwritten title to spine. Identical additional engraved title by Joseph Mulder (1658-1742), a Dutch Golden Age printmaker and engraver, for each of the two parts. Vol. 2 has title: Campegii Vitringa De synagoga vetere liber tertius : quo rectores & ministri synagogarum conferuntur cum præpositis & diaconis ecclesiæ Christianæ. Pars II. Both title pages in red and black lettering. Title vignettes. Decorative woodcut head-, tailpieces and initials. Originally published in 1685, this work is the second edition of Vitringa's dissertation on the synagogue and the development of the early Church. The term "synagogue" (like the word church) signifies first the congregation, then also the building where the congregation meet for public worship. As the Christian Church rests historically on the Jewish Church, so Christian worship and the congregational organization rest on that of the synagogue, and cannot be well understood without it. Vitringa's work explains that the Christian Church was framed on the model, not of the temple, but of the synagogue, just as its Sacraments arose out of Jewish ordinances which had no connection with the temple services. Includes two extensive indexes at rear (Vol. 2), as well as an Addenda and and emendanda in Vol. 2, p. [36]-[38] (last sequence). Binding age-toned and partly darkened. Handwritten title partly faded on spine. Ex-library bookplate on inside of front cover, and stamp on first title page. Water-staining to both endpapers and fly leaves, as well as at verso of first additional engraved title and at inner margin of first title page. Front hinge starting. Very first and very last pages slightly rippled due to damp exposure. Sporadic clear water-staining along edges of very first and very last pages (not affecting lettering). Text in Latin with some Hebrew. Binding in overall good- to good, interior in good- to very good condition. About the author: Campegius Vitringa (1659-1722) was a Dutch Protestant theologian and Hebraist. A follower of Johannes Cocceius,Vitringa was a supporter of prophetic theology. He was educated at the universities of Franeker and Leiden, and became professor of Oriental languages at the former in 1681. When locating prophetic outcomes, he would associate events to the near rather than the far-off future, placing a distinct focus on the period of the Maccabees (2nd Century BC). Like Joseph Mede (1586-1638), Vitringa believed wholeheartedly that the Millennium was yet to come, but did not expect any immediate changes. He relegated the end of the time to a remote future and strongly emphasized the concept of New Jerusalem (From Wikipedia).

         Supplementum defectus geometria Cartesianae circa inventionem locorum" [Joh. Bernoulli, pp. 264-269] WITH [Two other papers] WITH Notatiuncula ad acta decemb. 1695 [Leibniz, pp. 45-47] in Acta Eruditorum Anno M DC XCVI, 1696

      Grosse & Gleditsch, Leipzig - FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING OF JOHANN BERNOULLI'S FAMOUS BRACHISTOCHRONE PROBLEM (sometimes called the Brachistochrone challenge). The Brachistochrone (Greek for 'shortest' and 'time) problem itself was one of the earliest examples of a class of problem now known as the calculus of variations. By the 19th century, thanks to Lagrange among others, all fundamental laws of nature could be formulated in terms of the calculus of variations - a kind of universal language of physics. Bernoulli issued his mathematical challenge in the context of the argument between Newton and Leibniz over who first invented the calculus, the mathematical study of change. While Newton, save for a small notice, made something of a secret of his discovery of fluxions, Leibniz had published his calculus in 1684. By 1695, he and his student, Johann Bernoulli, had developed the calculus into a magnificent tool for solving an array of problems. Bernoulli and Leibniz, however, were curious about how much Newton really knew. Together they devised a test, the Brachistochrone problem, confident that only a mathematician who knew the calculus could solve it. Following the custom of the time, they published it. The problem read as follows: "Let two points A and B be given in a vertical plane. To find the curve that a point M, moving on a path AMB , must follow such that, starting from A, it reaches B in the shortest time under its own gravity" (ibid). Johann added that this curve is not a straight line, but a curve well known to geometers. Wanting to lure Newton, Bernoulli introduced his challenge as follows: "I, Johann Bernoulli, address the most brilliant mathematicians in the world. Nothing is more attractive to intelligent people than an honest, challenging problem, whose possible solution will bestow fame and remain as a lasting monument. Following the example set by Pascal, Fermat, etc., I hope to gain the gratitude of the whole scientific community by placing before the finest mathematicians of our time a problem which will test their methods and the strength of their intellect. If someone communicates to me the solution of the proposed problem, I shall publicly declare him worthy of praise" (Bernoulli, Acta 1696, p. 264). The solution to the Brachistochrone problem was a segment of a cycloid and it was solved by Leibniz, Newton (absent a proof), von Tschirnhaus, l'Hôpital and both Bernoullis. "Among the solutions, the two by the Bernoulli brothers were of particular importance. Johann had ingeniously reformulated the challenge as a problem belonging to optics, i.e., the bending of a light ray through a transparent nonuniform media, and applied Fermat's principle of least time. He thus demonstrated the fundamental parallel between geometric optics and point mechanics, which would lead to the work of W.R. Hamilton in the 1830's. The solution by Jacob also contains a general principle, namely, that a curve which constitutes a maximum or minimum as a whole must also possess this property in the infinitesimal - the fundamental principle of the calculus of variations" (DSB). Two of the solutions would be of significant import: one, Johann's own, because it would present the first example of the optical-mechanical analogy, and his brother Jakob's because it represented an important early step in the calculus of variations in that he realized that the problem itself was of a new type, the variable being a function (upon which, not incidentally, Lagrangian mechanics is based). ALSO PRESENT ARE OTHER PAPERS OF SIGNIFICANCE: Four by Jakob Bernoulli: "Observatiuncula ad ea quaenupero mense novembri de Dimensionibus Curvarum leguntur" WITH "Constructio Generalis omnium Curvarum transcendentium ope simplicioris Tractoriae et Logarithmicae", WITH "Problema Beaunianum universalius conceptum", WITH "Complanatio Superficierum Conoidicarum et Sphaeroidicarum" AND two more by Johann Bernoulli "Demonstratio Analyticea et Syntetica fuae Constructionis Curvae Beaunianae" WITH [Attributes: First Edition]

         Utrecht wandkaart - Bernard de Roy, 1743.

      NIEUWE KAART VANDEN LANDE VAN UTRECHTKopergravure, samengesteld uit meerdere bladen, vervaardigd door Bernard de Roy (/de Roij) in 1696, 2e staat uitgegeven door Covens en Mortier in 1743. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (prent) 121 x 184 cm.Dit is de bekendste kaart van de provincie Utrecht en na uitgifte van deze gedetailleerdere 2e staat, ongeveer een eeuw het meest gezaghebbende kaartwerk over de provincie. Alle latere kaarten zouden er op teruggrijpen.Ter omkadering van de kaart werden gravures gemaakt met wapens van Holland, stad en provincie Utrecht, magistraatspersonen en gezichten van Montfoort, Wijk bij Duursteerde, Utrecht, Rhenen en Amersfoort. Deze op losse bladen gedrukte versieringen zitten niet bij dit exemplaar.De Roy?s grootschalige kaart is er een in een reeks van wandkaarten, die in de 17de-eeuw van vele delen van ons land zijn verschenen. Bij gebrek aan een uniforme grootschalige kaart van het gehele grondgebied van de Republiek, vormden deze op verschillende schalen ontworpen en in kwaliteit en uitvoering uiteenlopende kaartwerken, toen de hoofdbron van de geografische kennis van de afzonderlijke gewesten.De kaart van Den Lande van Utrecht werd behalve om haar geografische informatie ook uit decoratieve en representatieve overwegingen gebruikt en vormde een waardige en passende versiering, zowel voor de vergaderzalen van de bestuurscolleges als voor de huizen van welgestelde particulieren. Helaas betekende deze bestemming meestal haar vrijwel zekere ondergang. Blootgesteld aan licht, stof, vocht, roet, temperatuurswisselingen, veelvuldige aanraking en andere ongunstige invloeden, takelden de op linnen of hout gemonteerde exemplaren in de loop der tijden sterk af en eindigden meestal roemloos hun bestaan. Dit exemplaar heeft haar ?bestemming? als wandkaart in eerste instantie niet bereikt, maar is in atlasvorm samengebonden geconserveerd gebleven en pas in de 20e-eeuw gemonteerd.Literatuur: facsimile met introductie door A.H. Sijmons (1973).Prijs: ? 7.500,-.

         The Athenian Gazette: or Causistical Mercury, Resolving All the Most Nice and Curious Questions Proposed by the Ingenious

      London: John Dunton, 1696. Volumes I-XIX (of XX) with volume titles. No. 25 in vol. XVII lacking. Folio. Contemporary Cambridge calf. Rebacked, heavy foxing and toning, some pages cropped. Volumes I-XIX (of XX) with volume titles. No. 25 in vol. XVII lacking. Folio. Swift's First Appearance in Print. A long run of The Athenian Gazette, containing Jonathan Swift's first appearance in print. His "Ode to the Anthenian Society" with a prefatory letter of 14 February 1791 from Moor Park appears on pages 1-6 of the supplement to the fifth volume. Both the poem and letter are signed in print, unusual for Swift who rarely acknowledged his works. Swift addresses his poem to the Athenian Society, an anonymous club of learned men, whose members are now known to have included the Gazette's publisher John Dunton, Samuel Wesley (father of John and Charles), and Richard Sault. The Gazette printed answers to questions sent in by its readers. "Through twelve diffuse stanzas, composed in nine days, Swift congratulates the nameless subjects of his adoration (actually a bookseller [John Dunton] and some hack assistants) upon their great part in reviving learning after the wars of 1688-91 ... while he is delighted by their skill in refining philosophy ... he reproves them for their compliments to women, which have turned the heads of the female sex" (Ehrenpreis, Swift I, p. 115). According to Dr. Johnson's apocryphal anecdote, this was the poem that lead Dryden to observe, "Cousin Swift, you will never be a poet." [Bound after:] [GILDON, Charles]. The History of the Athenian Society, for the Resolving All Nice and Curious Questions ... [iv], 36 pp., lacking frontispiece. London: James Dowley, [1692]. Heavy foxing, some headlines shaved. Teerink 467; Rothschild 825
