‎J. B. (PSEUD. OF HENRY NEVILL)‎

‎Some Reflections Upon the Earl of Danby, in Relation to the Murther of Sir Edmondbury Godfrey. - in a Letter to a Friend. - [Caption Title] (Early Printing)‎

‎(London), s.n. (1679). First Edition, First Issue (assume). Folded Sheet. Small folio (11-3/4 inches [30 cm] tall), pp. 4, signed "J.B."; toning and light soil, lacking self wrappers, issue with a comma after Godfrey instead of a period, pen notation "Henry Nevill alias Paine" in an old hand at the end of the caption title. Nevill, a known Papist, was implicated and held for suspicion of involvement in the Popish Plot. Ref. The Manuscripts of the House of Lords 1678-1693, pp. 78 and 154. Very Good A pamphlet written and published to help assert Danby's complicity in the Popish Plot. Godfrey, a magistrate involved in the investigation of the Popish Plot, was found face down in a ditch with a sword run though him ("That he was found with his own Sword through his Body;" from p. 3 ) just under his left breast. Suicide was quickly ruled out by the discovery that he had been strangled to death first - very tidy indeed. Wing B127. Ref. Oxford Dictionary of National Biography; OCLC.‎

‎HOLBEIN, HANS‎

‎Historiarum Veteris Instrumenti Icones Ad Vivum Expressae‎

‎Lyons, M. and G. Trechsel [for J. and F. Frellon], 1538. First Edition. Hardcover. Small quarto (5" x 6-1/2") bound in 19th-century English diced russia leather, tooled in blind, marbled endpapers and edges; 94 pages + colophon with blank verso. Housed in a modern green cloth slipcase. Illustrated with Treschel device on the title page and 92 woodcuts by Hans Lützelberger and others after Holbein. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE (with Judith rather than Job depicted on I2) of Holbein's influential illustrations for the Old Testament. With this publication "Bible illustration at Lyons changed significantly" (Mortimer). The set was re-used in Bibles by the same publishers and copied widely at Paris, Zurich, Antwerp, and elsewhere. The first four smaller blocks are from Holbein's Dance of Death series, published the same year; the remaining blocks are of Old Testament subjects. Holbein showed supreme skill at placing grand spiritual narrative within a compact domestic setting, thereby challenging the popularity of classical themes. The preface by François Frellon on the title page verso urges the reader to reject the images of goddesses such as Venus and Diana in favor of the "sacrosanctas Icones." Brunet III, 252: "Ces planches en bois .. ont été gravées avec beaucoup de délicatesse, d'après des dessins, en tout ou en partie de la main de Hans Holbein: les exemplaires en sont fort rares"; Graesse, page 317; Mortimer, FRENCH SIXTEENTH CENTURY BOOKS, 276.

(4 Books in One Volume).‎

‎Amsterdam: [Johann Georg Gichtel, et al], 1682. - Small octavo, 6-1/8 inches high by 4 inches wide. Four books in one leather bound volume. Bound in later full brown calf with a gilt-titled leather label and floral gilt decorations between raised bands on the spine. The covers are quite rubbed and scuffed and one of the labels is missing. 287 pages, illustrated with an engraved copperplate title depicting symbolic metaphysical symbols including winged pyramids, followed by a leaf of text explaining the figures/symbols in the plate, and a folding table of the three principles of divine revelation. Additionally illustrated with title vignettes, head and tail pieces and woodcut initials. Ex-library, de-acquisitioned by the Andover-Harvard Theological library with their book label mounted to the rear pastedown and their Rare Book Room's pictorial bookplate on the front pastedown. Both the label and the plate bear the library's "release" stamp. There is some occasional minor foxing and a few page corners and edges are creased. Very good. One of the titles from the collection of works entitled "Des Gottseeligen Hoch-Erleuchteten Jacob Boehmens Teutonici Philosophi Alle Theosophische Wercken." - ["German Baroque Literature" by Curt von Faber du Faur, #116].The titles of the additional works included in this volume are: "Clauis Oder Schluessel etlicher vornehmen Puncten und Woerter, so in allen des Authoris Buechern zu finden, deutlicher erklaeret", "Claues Oder Erklaerungen, Theils eigener, Theils Paracelsischer geheimen Namen und Woerter", and "Tabula Principiorum, Von Gott, Und Von der grossen und kleinen Welt"."The edition was published by Johann Georg Gichtel, with the help of others, from the manuscripts collected by Abraham Willemszoom van Beyerland, the purpose having been to produce a critical text of all Boehme's works. The printing was probably done by the firm of de Blaeu in Amsterdam. The important engraved titles and the copperplates which illustrate the text were possibly engraved by Jan Luyken after sketches by Franckenberg. The works were issued in such a form that they could be sold separately...." [Faber du Faur #116].According to Faber du Faur, Jacob Boehme (1575-1624) was the "son of a peasant in Lausitz and a cobbler by trade, possessed a powerful imagination greater than that of any German of his century, but he was no poet. He was rather a philosopher (although devoid of any education or training), and a very daring one, even more so than Leibniz who marked the end of this period...." Although his education was informal, he was familiar with the ideas of many of the great minds and philosophers of the ages, such as Paracelsus, as well as those of Sebastian Franck, Valentin Weigel, Kaspar von Schwenckfeld and, of course, with the Bible. "His thinking is indeed very independent" states Faber du Faur, "although he often uses the terminology of Paracelsus. To Boehme the world is 'God's signature,' a signature being the outward mark of the hidden virtues of things. What is new in his thinking is that he perceives in God's world not only love but also malice.... Boehme's influence upon his contemporary world was exercised primarily through a circle of Silesian noblemen who were followers of Schwenckfeld and were led by Abraham von Franckenberg. It was through him that Daniel von Czepko and Johann Scheffler were inspired to have their own visions, and Quirin Kuhlmann owes his principal ideas mainly to Boehme, although Kuhlmann later developed them quite independently."‎
