        La mort des enfans d\'Herodes, ou, Suite de Mariane: tragedie

      Paris: Chez Augustin Courbe, 1639. La Calprenede, Gaultier de Coste (d. 1663). La mort des enfans d\'Herodes, ou, Suite de Mariane: tragedie. Paris: Chez Augustin Courbe, 1639. Original edition. First performed in 1638. Quarto. 19th century marbled wrappers. Engraved title by Abraham Bosse dated 1639, verso blank; printed title, verso blank; 9pp. epistre to Cardinal Richelieu sgd La Calprenede; 2pp. priv dated 15 May and 2 July 1639; 1p. acteurs; 90pp. text. Errors in pagination. Collation:[A]4, B4, A-L4. Some darkening of text, minor dampstains bottom margin. Tchemerzine VI, 333-4. La mort des enfans d\'Herodes, ou, Suite de Mariane: tragedie is a sequel to or continuation of the Tristan l\'Hermite\'s La Mariane (written 1636, published Courbe, 1637 and again in 1639). The tragedy focuses on the character Herod I, King of Jerusalem, after he murders his three sons by Marianne I (whom he also kills in 29BC). As in Tristan\'s play, Herod is not a monster but a vain, passionate, and impetuous tyrant whose character drives him to murder. Calprenede\'s exposition dramatizes a number of scenes in the historical episode certain to engage the Parisian theatre-goer, who would prefer action to narration. La mort des enfans d\'Herodes is based on the historical record in Josephus and described by Father Nicolas Caussin (1683-1651; professor, preacher, dramatist and confessor to Louis XIII), where two of Herod\'s sons were executed in 7BC. The record of public works built by Herod was blemished by the savagery toward the large family produced by his ten wives. It is likely that La Calprenede\'s sequel to Tristan\'s play allowed the Marais troupe, where both plays were staged, to capitalize on the popularity of the subject matter of Herod I. According to Lancaster, the Bosse frontispiece dated 1637 was first used in Tristan\'s Mariane (Courbe, 1637; 1st or 2nd edition [not confirmed in Tchermerzine]). Since Courbe published both plays and printed the subtitle Suite de Marianne for Calprenedeís (even though Mariane does not play a major role in Calprenede\'s play), it is also likely the publisher issued them together in 1639 with the fine engraving to attract attention. Calprenede, although not a lawyer like many of his contemporary playwrights (Corneille, Du Ryer, Rotrou, Auvray, Rayssiguier), La Calprenede was the master of the courtroom drama, using this convention in the present play, leanne d\'Angleterre, and at still greater length in Essex. Trials occur again in Edouard, and, to a certain extent, in Hermenigilde (Snaith). Gaultier de Coste, seigneur de La Calprenede, (c.1610-1663): After studying at Toulouse, La Calprenede entered the regiment of the guards and campaigned in Germany. Pursuing military and literary careers simultaneously from 1635 to 1641, he wrote tragedies and tragicomedies, some based on episodes in English history, including Jeanne Reyne díAngleterre (1636; \"Jane, Queen of England\") and Le Comte díEssex (1638; \"The Earl of Essex\"). In 1642, he began a series of novels: Cassandre, 10 vol. (1642-45), a history of the decline of the Persian empire; Cleopatre, 12 vol. (1647-58), a story of Cleopatraís alleged daughter by Mark Antony; and Faramond, 12 vol. (1661-70), a Merovingian history, the last five volumes of which were completed after his death by Pierre d\'Ortigue de Vaumoriere. These well-plotted romances found immediate favor, and they continued to be popular to the end of the 18th century. Stories have it that when he ultimately established himself at court, the queen complained one day of her ladies in waiting being so absorbed by the story-telling of a certain young Gascon that they had no time for their work, so she thereupon sent for La Calprenede and enjoyed first-hand his skill as a raconteur. The sources of his early plays indicate that he may have read not only Latin, but Italian and English. He was a cadet, possibly an officer, in the Guards and saw service in Germany, where he suffered from the famine. Before leaving the army, he composed his first play. Lancaster writes in his monograph on La Calprenedeís drama, \"I was attracted to La Calprenede not only by the fact that he based the plot of three plays on English history, but by his producing in the important period between the Cid and Polyeucte more plays than almost any other French author. A man of such well-recognized importance in the history of the novel deserves to be studied, if it is only to determine the quality of his early literary activity, for it was as a dramatist that he served his apprenticeship and acquired what reputation he had before the publication of Cassandre.\" References: Lancaster, \"La Calprenede dramatist,\" Modern Philology 18 (1920-21):121-41, 345-60; Snaith, \"Gautier de Costes de la Calprenede: La mort de Mitridate,\" Liverpool Online Series (consulted October, 2011; http://www.liv.ac.uk/soclas/los/Mitridate.pdf).

        De modo usurarum liber.

      Leiden (Lugduni Batavorum), Ex officina Elseviriorum, 1639.. 8vo. Titelblatt mit Druckersignet in Rot-Schwarz-Druck, (52), 891, (92) S. Gut erhaltener zeitgenössischer Pergamentband auf drei Bünden geheftet, Papier sehr frisch.. Sehr schöner, stilvoller Erstdruck zu Zins und Wucher! - Das katholische Zinsverbot in der mittelalterlichen, agrarwirtschaftlich aufgebauten Welt war relativ einfach aufzustellen und durchzusetzen. Die frühkapitalistische Wirtschaftsordnung veränderte die Situation grundlegend, allein der kapitalintensive Buchdruck verlangte nach neuen Lösungen. Ein striktes Zinsverbot von Seiten der katholischen Kirche war beim besten Willen und auch intensiver Gewissensforschung nicht mehr aufrecht zu erhalten. Lebhafte Diskussionen ergriffen den europäischen Raum. Usura (Zins und Wucher) bildete oft den Gegenstand moralischer, religiöser, auch juristischer Bücher. Die wichtigste zinsrechtliche Schrift des 17. Jahrhunderts war das Werk von Claude de Saumaise (Salmasius), der in einem umfangreichen, einleitenden Vorwort einen historischen Ãœberblick über Zins und Wucher gibt. Salmasius (1555-1653) studierte ab 1604 an der Pariser Sorbonne und wechselte zwei Jahre später zu Dionysius Gothofredus, der zu dieser Zeit in Heidelberg lehrte, wohin er als Calvinist geflohen war. Dort trat er auch zum protestantischen Glauben über und suchte zunächst in Frankreich als Rechtsanwalt sein Glück. Die Heirat mit der Tochter Anne des Philologen Josias Mercier setzte ihn in die Lage, als Privatgelehrter zu wirken. Bald erwarb er sich als Gelehrter europäischen Ruhm und es folgten Angebote von verschiedenen Universitäten. Nach Venedig, London und Den Haag wollte er nicht gehen, schließlich folgte er 1631 einem Ruf an die Universität Leiden. Dort verfasste er auch sein wissenschaftliches bedeutsamstes Werk über Zins und Wucher.

Thomas Fuller (1608 - 1661) was a clergyman and a historian. The Holy War, his first historical work, is a history of the crusades. The Holy State, perhaps the most popular of all his writings, describes the holy state as existing in the family and in public life, gives rules of conduct, model "characters" for the various professions and holy and profane biographies (that is of moral and immoral persons). It is not a religious book. Among the biographies of the worthy are Sir Francis Drake, St. Augustine, Lord Burleigh, Queen Elizabeth, Lady Jane Grey, Paracelsus, Bishop Ridley, Cardinal Wolsey, the Black Prince and others, among the profane are Joan of Arc, the Witch of Endor, Joan of Naples, Ferdinand Alvarez de Toledo, Cesare Borgia and others. His rules of conduct encompass a wide variety of life's problems: Of Apparell, Of Building, Of Anger, Of Memory, Of Tombes, Of Marriage, Of Deformitie, Of Contentment, Of Fame, Of Books etc. Fuller was known to be a wit and his rules are full of pithy sayings: 'It is a vanity to persuade the world one hath much learning by getting a great library'; 'The Genius of the Author is commonly discovered in the Dedicatory Epistle'.

The constellation of Virgo, one of the twelve signs of the Zodiac, engraved by Alexander Mair for Bayer's 'Uranometria', a star atlas that shaped the way the heavens would be perceived for more than two centuries. Johann Bayer (1572-1625), an Augsburg lawyer, was an amateur astronomer in the years just prior to the invention of the telescope. His most important innovation was a new system of identifying stars by Greek and Roman letters, known today as the Bayer designation. His 'Uranometria' ('Measuring the Sky'), first published 1603, was the first celestial atlas to contain a chart of the stars in the Southern Hemisphere. WARNER: Bayer 1.

Thomas Fuller (1608-1661) was a clergyman and a historian. The Holy War, his first historical work, is a history of the crusades. The Holy State, perhaps the most popular of all his writings, describes the holy state as existing in the family and in public life, gives rules of conduct, model "characters" for the various professions and holy and profane biographies (that is of moral and immoral persons). It is not a religious book. Among the biographies of the worthy are Sir Francis Drake, St. Augustine, Lord Burleigh, Queen Elizabeth, Lady Jane Grey, Paracelsus, Bishop Ridley, Cardinal Wolsey, the Black Prince and others, among the profane are Joan of Arc, the Witch of Endor, Joan of Naples, Ferdinand Alvarez de Toledo, Cesare Borgia and others. His rules of conduct encompass a wide variety of life's problems: Of Apparell, Of Building, Of Anger, Of Memory, Of Tombes, Of Marriage, Of Deformitie, Of Contentment, Of Fame, Of Books etc. Fuller was known to be a wit and his rules are full of pithy sayings: 'It is a vanity to persuade the world one hath much learning by getting a great library'; 'The Genius of the Author is commonly discovered in the Dedicatory Epistle'.

        Sainte Bible en Latin et en Francais

      392400_1639 class=milo align=center itemprop=name>Sainte Bible en Latin et en Francais, 1819. 392400_1639 class=milo align=center itemprop=name>Sainte Bible en Latin et en Francais, 1819 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce set of French and Latin translations of the Hebrew Bible. Complete with the five books of the Torah. As well as the Books of Truth, Wisdom Books, and Poetry Books. Unfortunately the eight books of Nevi'im, and the Historical Books are absent. Five volumes of the original ten covering Genesis, Exodus, and Book of Leviticus to volume one. Volume two containing Numbers, Deuteronomy, Jose, Judges and Ruth. Volume three containing the four Books of Kings. Volume four contains the Two Books of Parlipomenes, Esdras, Nehemias, Tobias, Judith, Esther, and Job. With lastly volume five containing the Psalms of David, the Proverbs of Solomon, Ecclesiastes, and the Song of Songs. According to the Talmud, much of the contents of the Tanakh were compiled by the Men of the Great Assembly by 450BCE, and have since remained unchanged. Modern scholars believe that the process of canonisation of the Tanakh became finalised between 200BCE and 200CE. The Hebrew text was originally an abjad: consonants written with some applied vowel letters (matres lectionis). During the early Middle Ages scholars known as the Masoretes created a single formalised system of vocalisation. This was chiefly done by Aaron ben Moses ben Asher, in the Tiberias school, based on the oral tradition for reading the Tanakh, hence the name Tiberian vocalisation. It also included some of Ben Naftali and Babylonian innovations. Despite the comparatively late process of codification, some traditional sources and some Orthodox Jews believe the pronunciation and cantillation derive from the revelation at Sinai, since it is impossible to read the original text without pronunciations and cantillation pauses. The combination of a text ( miqra), pronunciation ( niqqud) and cantillation ( te`amim) enable the reader to understand both the simple meaning, as well as the nuances in sentence flow of the text. With advertisements between each book. Five volumes of the original ten. Condition: In original calf bindings with gilt designs to the spines. Externally, light rubbing to the boards and slight loss to the spine of volume four. One front joint is starting. All hinges are slightly strained. Internally, all are firmly bound and bright. Generally clean, with the odd spot. Private library bookplates to the front pastedown of each volume. Copperplate ink signature to the rear endpaper and rear pastedown to every volume. Some evidence of past worming to volume five, affecting pages 411 through to the rear pastedown. Overall: GOOD..

        'DU NOTAIRE'. Französische Handschrift in schwarzer Tinte auf Papier, unsigniert und undatiert (ca. 1760), einspaltig, zu 26 - 35 Zeilen, Schriftspiegel ca. 20 x 13 cm.

      . (478) S. (bis Seite 472 paginiert), (1) lose eingelegtes Korrekturblatt, dunkelbrauner Ganzleder-Band der Zeit auf fünf unechten Bünden (Gelenke mit kl. Einrissen, Ecken etwas berieben), 27 x 18,5 cm.. Der Text, in gut lesbarer Reinschrift, besteht aus etwa 200 Kapiteln mit Überschriften, die jeweils ca. 1 bis 4 Seiten umfassen. Die ersten Kapitel (S. 1 -23) befassen sich zunächst mit dem Notariat im Allgemeinen und dessen (historischer) Funktion ('Du Notaire', 'De la Creation des Notaires', 'Du Privilege des Notaires', etc.). Die folgenden (S. 23 - 104) behandeln die Praxis und die Rechtsformen von Verträgen und Transaktionen ('De l'origine des Contracts', 'De L'obligation', 'Formule d'une obligation', 'Des legalizations', 'De la transaction', 'De la restitution', 'Des choses qui peuvent etre vendues, ou achetees', etc.) und (S. 105 bis 230) den Kauf und Verkauf, die Überlassung, den Tausch und die Nutznießung, insbesondere von Immobilien, sowie spezielle Formen der Übertragung von Gütern und Rechten ('De la vente des fruits', 'De la vente des servitudes', 'De la rente', 'Du partage', 'De l'echange', 'Du titre clerical', 'Des resignations des benefices', 'Du contract d'entree en religion', 'De la Commande', 'Des fiefs', 'Des taillables', 'Des procures', 'Des Donnations', etc.). Auf Seite 230 bis 270 werden Heiratsverträge behandelt, daran anschließend (bis S. 297) u.a. Gesellschafts- und Vereinsrecht und Lehrverträge ('De la Societe', 'De l'apprentissage', 'Du Depot', 'De la quittance'), ab Seite 298 Testamente und Erbschaftsangelegenheiten ('De l'institution hereditaire', 'De la legitime', 'Des legats', 'Des usufruits', 'Des enfants naturels, batards, ... ', 'Des aliments', 'De l'inventaire legale', etc.). Ab Seite 395 wird schließlich das Schuldner-Gläubiger-Verhältnis, Zinsen und Sicherheiten dargestellt ('Des interets et usure', 'Des prescriptions', etc.); die letzten Kapitel befassen sich mit Sonderfragen, aber auch den Notariatstarifen; die Seiten 463 bis 471 enthalten das Inhaltsverzeichnis. - Seit dem Ende des 17. Jahrhunderts gab es in Frankreich ein Standardwerk zum Notariat, das Lehrbuch par excellence : Claude de Ferrieres (1639 - 1715) 'La Science parfaite des Notaires', erstmals 1682 in Paris erschienen. Auch für das vorliegende Manuskript war dieses, von Ferrieres Sohn Claude-Joseph (1680 - 1750) fortgeschriebene Standardwerk , wohl ein Vorbild. Auch Ferrieres Werk besteht aus etwas über 200 Kapiteln, von denen die meisten in der hier vorliegenden Handschrift ihre Entsprechung finden. Während Ferriere aber streng definitorisch Begriff für Begriff abhandelt, geht die Handschrift auch auf (wohl der eigenen Praxis entnommenes) Nebensächliches und Beispielhaftes ein : 'Des fruits qui tombent des arbres d'autrui sur le fond voisin' (Seite 444) etc. - Die ersten Seiten mit mittigem Braunfleck, sonst nur stellenweise leicht stockfleckig.
