Paris: late 18th century. This superb hand-colored engraving, Marais artificed, entoure de Jones d'airain, et de Jets d'esu dans les jardins de Versailles, from the late 18th century measures 19.75” x 26.75” and is in excellent condition. Illustrated in this engraving is courtiers of Versailles in a fountain garden, the main fountain reminiscent of a marsh, with swan fountain heads. The onlookers interact as they roam around the fountains in this lush and serene setting. The rich blues of the water blend well with greens of the gardens and the pale shades of the dusky sky. During the mid to late 18th century, the trend amongst European artists, printmakers and publishers, was to visually record their own country's architectural treasures, and the natural beauty of their gardens. Motivated by national pride, artists and printmakers began to publish views of their most-admired estates and grounds. In addition to being a visual record of the countryside, they were meant to encourage public recognition of national treasures. These prints were meant to be purchased by the English and foreign tourists whom desired a memento of their travels. Louis XIV (1638-1715), the Sun King of France, had grown up during a civil war between rival factions of aristocrats, known as the Fronde, and wanted a site where he could control the French government by absolute rule. Louis settled on the royal hunting lodge at Versailles , which had been acquired by Louis XIII in 1632, and over the following decades expanded it into the largest palace and grounds in the world. It was Louis XIV's hope to cr … [Click Below for Full Description]

BRAITHWAITE, Richard
Square 8vo. London: By J. Okes for Jasper Emery at the Eagle and Child in Pauls Church yard next Watlin Street, 1638. Square 8vo, modern full blind-ruled morocco, spine gilt lettered between raised bands, a.e.g. [xxviii], 413, [1(Errata)] pp.; pp. 30-31 & 202-203 misnumbered. Extra engraved title-page by William Marshall, depicting the author surrounded by vignettes of Herodotus, Livy, Thucydides, & Tacitus. Upper margins of first four leaves reinforced with old paper, sidenotes of leaves B1 & B3 slightly shaved; overall a clean, surprisingly fresh copy in a somewhat incongruous but handsome binding. Second Edition, more than doubled from its original version as The Schollers Medley, published in 1614. Braithwaite, who is today best known for his doggerel poem Drunken Barnaby's Four Journeys..., here anatomizes the various sorts of histories--including fictional or 'poetical' ones--and elaborates on their moral and educational qualities. He categorizes histories as "Divine, Discursive, Morall, Physick, or Mixt"; and in the course of analyzing them he passes on many fascinating anecdotes on both antiquity and his own times. There are references to Machiavelli, Orlando Furioso, and Don Quixote, as well as to many highly obscure writers and books. In his omniverous curiosity , digressive erudition, and idiosyncratic style Braithwaite (1588-1673) is comparable to his celebrated contemporaries Sir Thomas Browne (1605-1682) and Robert Burton (1577-1640).

Church of England. Book of Common Prayer. Greek
Londini: Typis Tho. Cotes pro Richardo Whitakero 8vo (16.1 cm, 6.5"). [262] pp. (lacking prelim. blank f.). [?1A4?4(-?1) ?4?4 ¶4¶¶4¶¶¶1 B?-N4 A?-04 P2].. 1638 First Greek translation of the entire Liturgy, including the Psalter, done by Elias Petley from the 1604 English Prayer Book. The Oxford Guide to the Book of Common Prayer describes this work as "reflecting an interest in Anglican-Orthodox union being promoted by Archbishop Laud and the Greek Patriarch Cyril Lucar"; the volume is dedicated to Laud. The main title-page is printed in red and black; the separate title-page for the Psalter has a neat woodcut printer's vignette and blazons (in Greek type) Psalterion prophetou kai basileos tou Dabid. The elegant Greek type is set in double columns, with some nicely laid in typographic ornaments and decorated capitals. The signing is erratic, but the collation of this example matches most recorded descriptions: Leaf ?1, apparently a cancel in a few copies but lacking in most reported examples and not present here, was a supplemental title-page giving Biblos d?mosi?n euch?n, kai leitourg?se?s myst?ri?n; Griffiths calls for only one preliminary leaf, as is found here, with the other leaf in the gathering being a blank. Leaf 1C2 is a cancel. Provenance: Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of Twistleton Fiennes, with that family's motto: "Fortem posce animum"; front free endpaper rubber-stamped "Birch" and front fly-leaf inked "Tho.s Birch e Coll.

F. DelamonceIllustrated plate of fountain at Versailles from Des Jardens de VersaillesParis, 1714Hand-colored copperplate engraving (later color)30 ½" x 37" framedLouis XIV (1638-1715), the Sun King of France, had grown up during a civil war between rival factions of aristocrats, known as the Fronde, and wanted a site where he could control the French government by absolute rule. Louis settled on the royal hunting lodge at Versailles, which had been acquired by Louis XIII in 1632, and over the following decades expanded it into the largest palace and grounds in the world. It was Louis XIV's hope to create a center for the royal court at Versailles. Beginning in 1669, the architect, Louis Le Vau (1612-1670), began a detailed renovation of the ch?au. The Ch?au of Versailles, outside of Paris, was converted into a spectacular royal palace in a series of four major and distinct building campaigns. By the end of the third building campaign, the Ch?au had taken on most of the appearance that it retains to this day, except for the Royal Chapel in the last decade of the reign. Louis XIV officially moved to Versailles, along with the royal court, on May 6, 1682. Louis had several reasons for creating such a symbol of extravagant opulence and stately grandeur, and for shifting the seat of the monarch. By moving the royal court and the seat of the French government, Louis XIV hoped to gain greater control of the government from the nobility. All the power of France emanated from this centre: there were government offices here, as well as the homes of thousands of courtiers and all the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Il volume comprende anche "Relatione di alcuni successi occorsi alla Republica di Lucca negl'anni 1638 / 39 /40. Dopoi la venuta à quel Vescovato del Sig. Cardinal Franciotti. Scritta fedelmente da Girolamo Beraldi Gentil'huomo lucchese". Cm.31x21,4. Pg.(2),44; (2),36. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida, con titoli manoscritti al dorso a quattro nervi. Il testo è raccolto in cornicette (alcune decorate), con note in latino a margine. Due capilettera incisi. Lievi abrasioni alle sguardie. Bruniture. L'Autore delle due presenti Opere viene concordemente individuato in Lelio Altogradi (Lucca, 1590-1660) (cfr. Lucchesini "Memorie per la storia letteraria di Lucca", II, 146-147). A lui la Repubblica commissionò la difesa della medesima contro le pretese della Chiesa durante gli avvenimenti che portarono all'interdetto della città nel 1640. Dietro il conflitto giurisdizionale si nascondeva in realtà il timore della oligarchia cittadina verso il troppo rapido successo del casato dei Franciotti. All'Altogradi fu appunto dato incarico di tradurre nei due presenti resoconti a stampa, sotto lo pseudonimo di Girolamo Beraldi, tale malcontento (cfr. F.M.Fiorentini "Memorie degli uomini di molta stima che sono stati per nascimento ovvero abitazione lucchesi."). > Parenti ("Dizionario dei luoghi di stampa falsi, inventati o supposti"), 51. Lozzi, I, 2379. Melzi, I, 126. Piantanida, 815, "Opera pregevole e tenuta in conto, perchè l'Autore fu testimonio oculare degli avvenimenti narrati". 318 gr. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Paris: late 18th century. This superb hand-colored engraving, Veue et perspective du Chasteau de Versailles, du coste de l'entree, from the late 18th century measures 19.75” x 26.75” and is in excellent condition with light staining and discoloration in the margins. Illustrated in this engraving is a frontal view of Versailles. This fine engraving shows the great skill of the engraver as linear perspective is used to make this dynamic plate, the center being the entrance into Versailles. Fine coloring of the courtier's clothes make them visible from the distance and shows the lush trees and gardens of the property. This lively scene has rearing horses, hounds and noblemen interacting, and relates a day in Versailles to the viewer. During the mid to late 18th century, the trend amongst European artists, printmakers and publishers, was to visually record their own country's architectural treasures, and the natural beauty of their gardens. Motivated by national pride, artists and printmakers began to publish views of their most-admired estates and grounds. In addition to being a visual record of the countryside, they were meant to encourage public recognition of national treasures. These prints were meant to be purchased by the English and foreign tourists whom desired a memento of their travels. Louis XIV (1638-1715), the Sun King of France, had grown up during a civil war between rival factions of aristocrats, known as the Fronde, and wanted a site where he could control the French government by absolute rule. Louis settled on the royal hunting lodge at Versailles , which ha … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris: late 18th century. This superb hand-colored engraving, du canal du Chateau de Rambouillet prise du balcon du Roy, from the late 18th century measures 19.75” x 26.75” and is in excellent condition with light discoloration in the margins and evidence of previous repair on the central crease. Seen in this engraving are the canals within the gardens at Chateau Ramboullet. Illustrated through the use of perspective, the canals are shown at angles towards a central point, and the landscape in the distance is shown slightly high on the horizon. The noblemen and women are seen on the banks, finely dressed in vibrant colors and interacting with each other. Delicate swans are illustrated floating in the canals and grazing animals are illustrated on the lawns.

Reliure en plein vélin d'époque. Dos lisse avec titre à la plume rouge estompé. Coutures apparentes. Ce panégyrique, nous annonce la première page de texte, fut prononcé par Pline le second devant le sénat, en présence de l'empereur, alors que Pline était Consul. En fait, le discours prononcé par Pline était beaucoup plus court que celui-ci et il fut écrit pour remercier l'empereur de l'avoir choisi comme consul, c'est seulement plus tard que Pline remania son texte en l'étoffant historiquement et lui donna ce titre. Certains pensent que Trajan et pline étaient proches dès l'accession au pouvoir d'empereur. Une préface du traducteur.

This panegyric, we announced the first page of text, was given by Pliny the second before the senate, in the presence of the emperor, while Pliny was Consul. In fact, the speech by Pliny was much shorter than the latter and it was written to thank the emperor for having chosen as consul, it was only later that Pliny reshuffled his text fleshing historically and gave him this title.

There is splitting to the spine, with the front board becoming loose - although holding firm at the moment. There is minor worming to head/tail of spine - this does not effect the book internally. Internally, there is browning to the page edges and some leaves have spotting - but this is not to serious.

Anonymous translation by Thomas Habington of DE EXCIDIO ET CONQUESTU BRITANNIAE (1567), a work by Britain's first historian, first published in 1525. "The writings of Gildas have come down to us under the title of GILDAE SAPIENTIS DE EXCIDIO BRITANNIAE LIBER QUERULUS [a.k.a. LIBER QUERULUS DE EXCIDIO BRITANNIAE]. Though at first written consecutively, the work is now usually divided into three portions, -- a preface, the history proper, and an epistle, -- the last, which is largely made up of passages and texts of Scripture brought together for the purpose of condemning the vices of his countrymen and their rulers, being the least important, though by far the longest of the three. In the second he passes in brief review the history of Britain from its invasion by the Romans till his own times. Among other matters reference is made to the introduction of Christianity in the reign of Tiberius; the persecution under Diocletian; the spread of the Arian heresy; the election of Maximus as emperor by the legions in Britain, and his subsequent death at Aquileia; the incursions of the Picts and Scots into the southern part of the i … [Click Below for Full Description]
