         Letter to M[adam]e la Duchelle d'Avegry[?]]. [Paris, December? 1703]. Small 4to (19 x 14 cm). Autograph letter in French, signed, written in dark brown ink in a Latin hand on paper.

      - For Verjus and his role in the missions of the Far East, see: Frederik Vermote, The role of urban real estate in Jesuit finances and networks between Europe and China, 1612-1778, doctoral thesis, University of British Columbia (Vancouver 2013). Signed autograph letter written by Antoine Verjus (1632-1706), Parisian Jesuit procurator for the Indian and Chinese missions from 1678 to 1702 and, on the evidence of the present letter still in 1703. He reports on various Jesuits who have left for China, notes the importance of the work and the honour it has brought to others (explicitly noting the Duchess of Alba), and appears to be seeking patronage. In the 1690s Verjus had corresponded with Leibniz and helped him establish contacts in China. He spent much of his career attempting to establish a safer and more reliable connection between Europe and China. He distrusted the motives of his colleagues in other European countries, even fellow Jesuits, and succeeded in diverting funding for missions from Lisbon to Paris. He found much support in Germany, however, especially the Prince-Bishop of Münster, Ferdinand von Fürstenberg. "Verjus' correspondence illustrates his pivotal role in reshaping Jesuit transport and communication networks." (Vermote p. 32). The letter was formerly folded horizontally and vertically, probably for sending, and one corner is slightly damaged with no loss of text. In very good condition. An important primary source on French Jesuit missionary work in China and it financing.

         Somme rural, ou le grand coustumier général de practique civil et canon. Reveu, corrigé sur l'exemplaire manuscript, illustré de commentaires & annotations... par Louys Charondas Le Caron

      [30]-904-[28] pages, 2 Paris, Barthelemy Macé, 1612, in-4, [30]-904-[28] pages, 2 planches dépliantes gravées sur bois, basane blonde du XVIIIe siècle, dos lisse orné de roulettes superposées, pièce de titre rouge, tranches rouges, Nouvelle édition du commentaire du jurisconsulte et poète français Louis "Charondas" le Caron (1536-1617) sur ce grand classique de droit coutumier médiéval, oeuvre majeure donnée par Jean Boutillier (c. 1340 - 1395), jurisconsulte artésien du XIVe siècle. La Somme rurale, entendre "compendium populaire", contemporaine du Grand coustumier de France, fut entreprise dans les années 1370 : Boutillier, bailli de Vermandois, rassembla tous les texte et arrêts importants rendus par le Parlement dans le Vermandois et en Tournaisis. L'ouvrage, devenu indispensable aux jurisconsultes du Nord de la France, connut sa première édition en 1479, fut traduit en flamand et fut édité jusqu'au milieu du XVIIe siècle. Peu de manuels de droit connurent une telle vogue. Louis Charondas en fut le commentateur le plus illustre. Il divisa l'ouvrage de Boutillier en deux livres, qu'il enrichit considérablement. La première édition de son commentaire parait en 1598 chez Macé (selon Paillard de Saint-Aignan et Graesse), suivie des éditions de 1603, 1611 et 1612. L'illustration comprend un "Arbre de lignée et consanguinité" et un "arbre des affinités". Épidermures, quelques rousseurs. Dupin II, p. 301. Paillard De Saint-Aiglan Alphonse. "Notice sur Jean Boutillier, auteur de la Somme rurale". In: Bibliothèque de l'École des chartes, 1848, tome 9, pp. 89-143. Graesse I, p. 512 pour les éditions de 1598 et 1611.

         Theophrasti Notationes Morum. Isaacus Casaubonus recensuit, in Latinum sermonem vertit et Libro Commentario illustravit. Edition tertia recognita, ac infinitis in locis ultra praecedentes aucta et locupletata. Cum indice necessario.

      Lugduni, Viduam Ant. De Harsy, 1612. - in-8. 8ff. 367pp. 6ff. Demi veau, dos à nerfs orné (Reliure du XIXs.). Première Edition définitive de la version donnée par le grand helléniste protestant Isaac Casaubon (1559-1614) des Caractères de Théophraste, avec ses commentaires. Casaubon avait d'abord publié en 1592 une édition partielle du texte grec de Théophraste contenant 23 caractères, accompagnée de la traduction latine et de commentaires. La présente édition offre, pour la première fois, la version définitive de son travail avec 5 caractères supplémentaires et un commentaire beaucoup plus étendu, qui occupe les pp. 81 à 350. La première édition du texte grec des célèbres "Caractères" du philosophe grec, vit le jour à Nuremberg en 1527, accompagnée de la version latine par Pirkheimer. Mais c'est cette traduction commentée de Casaubon qui fit autorité. Le savant Scaliger lui écrivait notamment, après en avoir pris connaissance : "A peine j'eus gouté à tes 'Charactères de Théophraste' j'en fus transporté. Je ne pus m'empêcher de faire ton éloge avec toute la chaleur que donne l'amitié et cependant tout ce que j'ai pu dire reste très en dessous de ce que mérite ton génie". Le travail de Casaubon a servi de modèle aux études ultérieures et notamment à La Bruyère qui traduisit d'abord Théophraste, avant de l'imiter et d'ajouter à ceux du philosophe grec, ses propres "Caractères" inspirés des mœurs de son temps. "Il semble établi que la traduction de Théophraste a été faite par La Bruyère surtout d'après la traduction latine de Casaubon complétée par le commentaire de cet érudit" (Julien Benda). Sur une page de garde figure cette inscription de l'époque: "Guido Patinus, Bellovacus, Doctor Medicus Parisiensis et Professor regius. 1656. Foelix qui potuit". Il s'agit de l'inscription autographe de l'écrivain et médecin français Guy Patin (1602-1672), ami de Gabriel Naudé et de Jean Riolan, à qui ce volume a appartenu. Bon exemplaire. Cf. Julien Benda in: "Œuvres Complètes de La Bruyère" (Pleiade, 1951). [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

         Elegantiae Latini sermonis. [On the part-title for part 2, under "Aloisae Sigeae":] Satyrae sotadicae, de arcanis amoris et veneris, ...[The Netherlands? ca. 1750?]. 12mo. With a title-page that looks more like a half-title and gives the impression that the book is a collection of sermons by Meursius, and a part-title for part 2 that gives the author's female pseudonym and the true title. Boards (ca. 1900), covered with paste-paper. Untrimmed.

Rare edition, in the original Latin, of a famous erotic prose dialogue by Nicolas Chorier (1612-1692), recounting the sexual initiation of Ottavia, an innocent but intensely motivated young girl. Chorier first published it in Latin in the 1660s under the pseudonym "Aloisia Sigea" and claimed it was translated by Johannes Meursius from a Spanish manuscript. It went through numerous editions and was translated into several European languages, including Dutch, English, French and German. This "vastly dilated and wholly libidinous parody of women's educational aspirations" (Turner) had a profound influence on European erotic literature. The title-page, which looks more like a half-title, was probably intended to hide the true nature of the book, making it appear to be a collection of sermons by Meursius. This title is found already on editions thought to date from ca. 1680. The part-title for the second part gives the pseudonym and title used for the earliest and many later editions.With library stamp, flyleaf with manuscript note in German on Chorier, some soiling. Overall in good condition.

With an intriguing gift inscription probably to John Rawdon, first Earl of Moira who died in 1793 from one John Ball: 'Honoratissimo Comiti de Mojral misit Johannes Ball A.M. Michael Maittaire (also Michael) (1668 7 September 1747) was a French-born classical scholar and bibliographer in England, and a tutor to Lord Philip Stanhope. He edited an edition of Quintus Curtius Rufus, later owned by Thomas Jefferson. His works included a grammar of English (1712). He was born in France of Huguenot parents, who around the time of the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes moved to England. He obtained a king's scholarship at Westminster School in 1682. Richard Busby, then head-master, made him concentrate on the study of Greek and Latin. On leaving school he went to The Hague, where he was received by the Vaillants, and then to Paris. On returning to England he gained the goodwill of Robert South, at the time a canon of Christ Church, Oxford it is said that he compiled a list of the Greek words that were wrongly accented in the works of William Sherlock. South made him 'canoneer' student of Christ Church, and he took the degree of M.A. on 23 March 1696, being incorporated M.A. at Cambridge in 1708. In 1695 he was appointed second master of Westminster, but resigned in 1699 and kept a private school, one of the pupils at which was Stephen Martin Leake. Late in life he was Latin tutor to Stanhope, Lord Chesterfield's son. In 1728 he was living in a house in Orange Street, near Holborn, London. Maittaire died on 7 September 1747, aged 79. Over fifty years he had formed a large library, rich in early printed editions. It was sold by auction in London by Cock & Langford, the sale beginning on 21 November 1748 and lasting for forty-four evenings. Maittaire began to publish about 1706. His major works are his Annales Typographici and other writings on the history of printing, and of editions of the classics, especially the series of Latin classics printed in duodecimo by Jacob Tonson and Watts of London from 1713 to 1719. Pope had made Maittaire in the manuscript of the Dunciad an inhabitant of the "Kingdom of Dullness", but the lines were not printed, after a request made for their suppression by Edward Harley, 2nd Earl of Oxford, a patron of Maittaire. Extracts from Maittaire's letters to the Earl of Oxford are printed in John Nichols's Literary Anecdotes, and other letters by him are in George Ballard's collection in the Bodleian Library. In his earliest letters he signs his name 'Michell Mattaire'. (Wikipedia)

Le travail de Casaubon a servi de modèle aux études ultérieures et notamment à La Bruyère qui traduisit d'abord Théophraste, avant de l'imiter et d'ajouter à ceux du philosophe grec, ses propres "Caractères" inspirés des mœurs de son temps. "Il semble établi que la traduction de Théophraste a été faite par La Bruyère surtout d'après la traduction latine de Casaubon complétée par le commentaire de cet érudit" (Julien Benda). Sur une page de garde figure cette inscription de l'époque: "Guido Patinus, Bellovacus, Doctor Medicus Parisiensis et Professor regius. 1656. Foelix qui potuit". Il s'agit de l'inscription autographe de l'écrivain et médecin français Guy Patin (1602-1672), ami de Gabriel Naudé et de Jean Riolan, à qui ce volume a appartenu. Bon exemplaire. Cf. Julien Benda in: "Œuvres Complètes de La Bruyère" (Pleiade, 1951). [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

         Somme rural, ou le grand coustumier général de practique civil et canon. Reveu, corrigé sur l'exemplaire manuscript, illustré de commentaires & annotations par Louys Charondas Le Caron

      1612 - [30]-904-[28] pages, 2 Paris, Barthelemy Macé, 1612, in-4, [30]-904-[28] pages, 2 planches dépliantes gravées sur bois, basane blonde du XVIIIe siècle, dos lisse orné de roulettes superposées, pièce de titre rouge, tranches rouges, Nouvelle édition du commentaire du jurisconsulte et poète français Louis "Charondas" le Caron (1536-1617) sur ce grand classique de droit coutumier médiéval, oeuvre majeure donnée par Jean Boutillier (c. 1340 - 1395), jurisconsulte artésien du XIVe siècle. La Somme rurale, entendre "compendium populaire", contemporaine du Grand coustumier de France, fut entreprise dans les années 1370 : Boutillier, bailli de Vermandois, rassembla tous les texte et arrêts importants rendus par le Parlement dans le Vermandois et en Tournaisis. L'ouvrage, devenu indispensable aux jurisconsultes du Nord de la France, connut sa première édition en 1479, fut traduit en flamand et fut édité jusqu'au milieu du XVIIe siècle. Peu de manuels de droit connurent une telle vogue. Louis Charondas en fut le commentateur le plus illustre. Il divisa l'ouvrage de Boutillier en deux livres, qu'il enrichit considérablement. La première édition de son commentaire parait en 1598 chez Macé (selon Paillard de Saint-Aignan et Graesse), suivie des éditions de 1603, 1611 et 1612. L'illustration comprend un "Arbre de lignée et consanguinité" et un "arbre des affinités". Épidermures, quelques rousseurs. Dupin II, p. 301. Paillard De Saint-Aiglan Alphonse. "Notice sur Jean Boutillier, auteur de la Somme rurale". In: Bibliothèque de l'École des chartes, 1848, tome 9, pp. 89-143. Graesse I, p. 512 pour les éditions de 1598 et 1611.

         Hudibras, in three Parts, written in the time of the Great Wars: corrected and amended. With large annotations, and a preface by Zachary Grey, LL. D. Adorn d with a new Set of Cuts.

      xxxvi, [42], 424 [16] & 446 [23], [1] pp., with engraved portrait from G. Vertue, and 16 plates, (5 of them folded) by Mynden after Hogarth. Gilt margins. Oktav 8. Bound in period half leather over marbled boards. 2 Vols. complete. The boards are rubbed and scuffed, with some wear to the spine ends and corners. Internally, eventually some minor touches of finger soiling and the odd spot, superficial splitting of fep to the front hinge of the second volume, but bindings are very tight and prints and pages crisp, and clean throughout, almost as new. Actually a really nice and sound set. - Samuel Butler (* 8. Februar 1612 in Strensham, Worcestershire 25. September 1680 in London) war ein englischer Dichter. Sein Hauptwerk ist das komische Epos Hudibras (Teil 1 u. 2, Lond. 166364, Teil 3, 1678 dann oft zusammengedruckt, am besten in der hier vorliegenden Prachtausgabe von Zacharias Grey, mit Kupfern von William Hogarth, Cambridge 1744. Das Versepos, offenbar eine Nachahmung des Don Quichote, schildert die Abenteuer des presbyterianischen Ritters Hudibras und seines Knappen Ralph, welche das Land durchziehen, um alle möglichen Übel zu vertilgen, doch als Heuchler und Schmarotzer, die sie sind, überall nur Schläge ernten. Das von Witz sprudelnde und in einem eigentümlichen Stil geschriebene Werk bricht unvollendet ab, verdient aber auch in dieser Gestalt als Zeit- und Sittenspiegel großes Lob. // William Hogarth (* 10. November 1697 in London 26. Oktober 1764 ebenda) war ein sozialkritischer englischer Maler und Grafiker. Als Vorläufer der modernen Karikaturisten prangerte er in Gemälden und Kupferstich-Folgen die Sitten und Gebräuche seiner Zeit, schonungslos und mit beißender Ironie an. Als Kupferstecher machte Hogarth sich mit seinen 1726 erstmals veröffentlichten Illustrationen zu Samuel Butlers in Knittelversen verfasster, antipuritanischer Abenteuergeschichte des Antihelden Hudibras einen Namen.

         La Perspective, Avec la Raison des Ombres et Miroirs

      - Finely engraved title & numerous fine engravings in the text (many full-page, one double-page). 5 p.l., 49 leaves, [16] leaves. Large folio, cont. vellum over boards (some dampstaining, mostly marginal, to about nine leaves, some light browning). London: Jan Norton, 1612 [with added engraved imprint beneath sill of the compartment: "Francfort ches la vefue de Hulsius"]. First edition, second issue (see below), of this rare perspective manual by the architect and engineer Salomon de Caus (d. 1626), a prominent theorist of perspective, who was renowned as an inventor of mechanical contrivances, utilitarian and entertaining. The book is of great interest for its material on the phenomenon of anamorphosis, a distorted projection or drawing of anything, which, when viewed from a particular point, or by reflection from a suitable mirror, appears regular and properly proportioned. The work presents a large number of perspective problems, including intricate projections and optical illusions, drawings of shadows in perspective, and the mirroring of objects. "In the sum total of his work, this book takes its place as one chapter of a vast treatise on the wonders of the world, in which the harmony of sounds and shapes, the mechanics of vision and of hydraulic machines are presented on the same level. Although the author writes in the sober style of a technician, he is deeply aware of the poetry of his subjects."-Baltru?aitis, Anamorphic Art, p. 37. Caus was born in the Dieppe region, but moved a great deal in Flemish and German circles in which anamorphoses seem to have been particularly in vogue. He was in the service of the Archduke Albert II of Austria (1605-10), then in England where he worked in the Richmond Gardens and for Henry, Prince of Wales, and finally with Frederick V, Elector of the Palatinate and King of Bohemia (1619). He spent the final years of his life in France. A cosmopolitan and intellectual with wide-ranging interests, he wrote on music, automata, on solar clocks and on Euclidean proportions. This book appears to be the second book published in England to make use of folding or pop-up flaps in diagrams (the first being John Dee's Euclid of 1570). Our book is an interesting example of shared printing: Richard Field printed the preliminaries, the letterpress of Chap. 10 of "Ombres" and all of "Miroirs" while Mommart in Brussels printed the rest. The first issue is dated 1611; our issue is dated a year later with a slightly altered imprint (see NSTC 4868.7 & 4869 for details). A fine copy preserved in a black morocco-backed box. Several of the engravings have been slightly shaved at outer or lower margins. ? Kemp, The Science of Art, pp. 112, 118, & 183. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         L'Arte Vetraria distinta in Libri Sette.Ne quali si scoprono, effetti maravigliosi, & insegnano segreti bellissimi, del Vetro nel Fuoco & altre cose curiose

      - Woodcut printer's device on title. 4 p.l., 114, [6] pp. Small 4to, 18th-cent. vellum over boards (light browning & foxing). Florence: Giunta, 1612. First edition of the first and most famous textbook devoted to glassmaking. "Neri is remembered only for L'arte vetraria (1612), a little book in which many, although by no means all, of the closely guarded secrets of glassmaking were printed for the first time. He recommended that glass be made from rocchetta (a fairly pure sodium sesquicarbonate from the Near East) and tarso, which he described as a kind of marble but which must have been some form of silica. He did not indicate the source of the necessary proportion of lime. The main part of the text deals with the coloring of glass with metallic oxides to give not only clear and uniform colors but also various veined effects. There are chapters on making lead glass of high refractive index and enamel (opaque) glass by the addition of tin oxide."-D.S.B., X, p. 23. Neri (d. ca. 1614), appears to have learned the art of glassmaking at Murano, near Venice, and to have continued his studies of this and other chemical arts in the Low Countries. "The greater part of the book is devoted to the coloration of glass, both to imitate gemstones and for the use of enamellers."-Singer et al, History of Technology, III, p. 217-(& see the detailed discussion of this work on pp. 217-19). This work went through numerous editions and translations; the first edition is rare. Very good copy. Engraved armorial bookplate of the Italian poet Domenico Rosa Morando (1734-1824). ? Duncan 9299.

This book appears to be the second book published in England to make use of folding or pop-up flaps in diagrams (the first being John Dee's Euclid of 1570). Our book is an interesting example of shared printing: Richard Field printed the preliminaries, the letterpress of Chap. 10 of "Ombres" and all of "Miroirs" while Mommart in Brussels printed the rest. The first issue is dated 1611; our issue is dated a year later with a slightly altered imprint (see NSTC 4868.7 & 4869 for details). A fine copy preserved in a black morocco-backed box. Several of the engravings have been slightly shaved at outer or lower margins. ? Kemp, The Science of Art, pp. 112, 118, & 183.

         L'Arte Vetraria distinta in Libri Sette...Ne quali si scoprono, effetti maravigliosi, & insegnano segreti bellissimi, del Vetro nel Fuoco & altre cose curiose

      1612. Woodcut printer's device on title. 4 p.l., 114, [6] pp. Small 4to, 18th-cent. vellum over boards (light browning & foxing). Florence: Giunta, 1612. First edition of the first and most famous textbook devoted to glassmaking. "Neri is remembered only for L'arte vetraria (1612), a little book in which many, although by no means all, of the closely guarded secrets of glassmaking were printed for the first time. He recommended that glass be made from rocchetta (a fairly pure sodium sesquicarbonate from the Near East) and tarso, which he described as a kind of marble but which must have been some form of silica. He did not indicate the source of the necessary proportion of lime. The main part of the text deals with the coloring of glass with metallic oxides to give not only clear and uniform colors but also various veined effects. There are chapters on making lead glass of high refractive index and enamel (opaque) glass by the addition of tin oxide."-D.S.B., X, p. 23. Neri (d. ca. 1614), appears to have learned the art of glassmaking at Murano, near Venice, and to have continued his studies of this and other chemical arts in the Low Countries. "The greater part of the book is devoted to the coloration of glass, both to imitate gemstones and for the use of enamellers."-Singer et al, History of Technology, III, p. 217-(& see the detailed discussion of this work on pp. 217-19).

         Le Nozze di Cana

      1612. Acquaforte, 1612, firmata in lastra in basso. Esemplare di secondo stato con l'indirizzo del Remondini. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata priva di filigrana ma databile alla fine del XVII secolo, con sottili margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Questa stampa riproduce nello stesso verso e con fedeltà un dipinto firmato e datato 1561, eseguito dal Tintoretto per il Refettorio del Convento dei Crociferi a Venezia. In seguito allo scioglimento della corporazione venne trasferito nella Sacrestia della chiesa di S. Maria della Salute, dove si trova tuttora. In origine centinata, la tela venne successivamente trasformata in rettangolare nel corso del Settecento. Negli angoli superiori della stampa si trovano gli emblemi dei Crociferi, confraternita che commissionò il dipinto del Tintoretto ed alla quale apparteneva padre Opilio Verfa a cui la stampa è dedicata.

         Globus Coelestris

      1612. Carta geografiaca tratta dal "Tabularum Geographicarum contractarum" di Petrus Bertius, edizione latina del 1616. L'opera contiene 219 carte che illustrano questa nuova versione della geografia del Bertius, per la prima volta pubblicata nel 1600 con le carte di Barent Langenes e Cornelis Claesz. Le carte derivano dal grande Mercator/Hondius atlas, delle quali molte rappresentano una semplice riduzione. Incisione in rame, carta leggermente brunita, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. A superior rival to the pocket Ortelius atlas appeared about 1598, under the imprint of Barent Langenes and Cornelis Claesz. Claesz also published the Tabularum Geographicarum Contractarum, edition with texy by Petrus Bertius, in 1600. After the death of Cornelis Claesz in 1609, Jodocus Hondius II became the new publisher of the work, composed by 7 parts in 1, with engraved title - page and 220 full - page engraved maps in text. All the maps were newly engraved and slightly larger in size, because Hondius was not able to acquire the original plates. With the new plates the work was definitely improved and enjoyed a growing demand of the public, which at that time had the choice between the Atlas Minor by Mercator and Bertius' Tabularum Geographicarum. The 219 plates, with the oval world map appearing twice, were produced to illustrate a new version of the geography of Bertius, published in 1616. According to King, their correct attribution is by Hondius, after Mercator and Hondius, taken from Bertius, who was only responsible for revising his text again. Copperplates, in very good conditions. Amsterdam Amsterdam 135 100

      - Antwerpen, [ca. 1612]. Oblong 8vo (18.8 x 12.4 cm). 19 beautiful contemporarily hand-coloured engravings including the engraved title page depicting Orpheus charming and taming the birds and beasts of the forest. All are mounted on contemporary paper and nicely framed in five sections in a tortoise-shell setting.= An exceptional suite in a contemporary coloured state. Of the 19 plates, only 2 have the normally present numbering and engraved signature: "Adrian. Collaert fecit et excud". The other 16 are most probably some sort of proof prints before letters and numbers, which is very unusual and completely unknown in any bibliography nor was it known by the leading expert, Sam Segal, whom we consulted. He also confirmed the contemporary colouring, all done in the same brilliant hand. Nissen quotes an engraved title and 19 engravings; therefore we are lacking one plate only, which makes this an almost complete set of the already very rare suite of the animalium. The plates depict men (mostly in hunting scenes), apes, cows, bulls, horses, lions, dogs, camels, goats, deer, pigs, elephants, wolves, rhinoceroses, a chameleon, etc. -one of the nicest engravings on animals from this great Flemish artist. A few plates with a small and old repaired tear and one with a tiny damaged spot in the image, some of the mounts with old paper repairs, but overall in very good condition, with great vibrant colouring, some heightened with gold.
