Institutio Astronomica de usu Globorum & Sphaerarum Caelestium ac TerrestriumWillem Janszoom Blaeu1690Joannis Wolters  243VellumThis was a popular primer on astronomy originally published in 1618. It covers both Ptolemaic and Copernican astronomy. This book was originally printed in the Dutch language, and was translated to Latin in 1634. The author began his carreer as an assistant to Tycho Brahe, after which he became a maker of instruments and globes, then later an engraver and printer. A previous owner's signature, dated Feb. 12, 1706, is on the front flyleaf. The book is in two parts, the first part being Ptolemaic astronomy, while the second part is Copernican astronomy. The book was purchased through the first ever ABAA virtual book fair.

La Nature et Présage des Comètes. Ouvrage Mathematique, Physique, Chimique & Historique; Enrichi des Propheties des derniers Siecles, et de la fabrique des grandes lunettes
Claude Comiers1665Charles Mathevet1st 395VellumThis volume is missing all the introductory sheets (including the title) and sheets 415 to 499 (as well as the table). It is composed as follows: pp. 1-352, then cccliij-ccclx, then pp. 353-368, then pp. 387-398, then pp. 401-414. In addition to the missing leaves mentioned above, there are therefore still two paginated leaves in Roman numerals (placed between pages 352 and 353), pages 369 to 387 and pages 399-400. It is illustrated with 10 figures (/ 11) in the text engraved on wood. In full, the work consists of 7 treatises (2 important and 5 little developed in fine): On the nature of comets - Omens of comets - The end of the world - The list of 20 books on the Antichrist - The 28 popes who are yet to come before the end of the world - The prophecies of a King of France - The way to make the big glasses. Our copy contains only the two main treatises (cut off from the very last pages of the second). The work was most certainly partly untied due to the shortages and has been restored to restore its body (poor quality work), the guards have been renewed. Burnished interior, foxing, a few rings or wettings, some traces of worms in the lower corner (far from the text), horny leaves, paper patch on the margin of the foot of a leaf, broken lines of notebooks (firmly attached but poorly sewn).
