        Historische Chronica, oder Beschreibung der fürnemsten Geschichten, so sich von Anfang der Welt, biß auff unsere Zeiten zugetragen

      Third edition; an interesting history of the world, in an imposing volume, contemporary-bound in a peculiar blindstamped skin, with devices on covers coloured by a contemporary hand. The binding seems to by in imitation of the Wittenberg binder Thomas Kruger. A remarkable binding, in a strictly untouched state, featuring a medallion on the front cover with contemporary colour representing "Caritas and the beggar", and lettered in blind re-enhanced with red with the inscription "Chronica J. L. Gottfridi M.DC.XXXXII. Matthaeus Merian Frankcfurt Ammain", thus identifying the work and printers details; the lower cover is more austere in decoration, simply showing the Brandenburg arms, also heightened with colour, this time red and black. The binding is probably attributable to a follower of the Kruger workshop (see his Melanchton/Luther-decorated binding at the BL). The Margraviate of Brandenburg, and their longest ruling house, the Hohenzollern, played a significant role in the history of Germany and Central Europe, by the 17th century it inherited the Duchy of Prussia, paving the way to the Kingdom of Prussia, which would help shape modern Europe; the relevance and influence of the Margraves was rivalled by only a few houses across Europe (having had part of the Elections for the Holy Roman Emperor, participating in the Prussian victories and expansion in the 18th century, the dissolution of the Holy Roman Empire in the 19th century, and the unification of Germany in the 19th century), this binding, commissioned for one of them, or presented as a gift by them, is a wonderful testimony to the House´s splendour. The illustration is comprised of an engraved frontispiece by Sandrart double page maps and views (namely that of the world and Gibraltar in siege) is by Merian the elder (1593 - 1650), father of Maria Sibylla, and one of the leading figures in publishing and book-illustration of the first half of the 17th century in Germany, whose career began by joining the well-established De Bry family of publishers and travellers. The Historische Chronica can take its place amongst the most famed histories of the world, having gone through several editions in the 17th and 18th century; Gottfried (1584 - 1633) was a German historian, writer, translator and publisher, this is likely his magnum opus. Although not rare in itself, it is unusual to find it in such a binding, and complete. Haebler I, 251, XVII and II, 46, IV. Shirley 345. Graesse III, 122.

        An interpretation of the number 666. Wherein, not onely the manner, how this number ought to be interpreted, is clearely proved and demonstrated: but it is also shewed, yt [sic] this number is an exquisite and perfect character, truly, exactly, and essentially describing that state of goverment, to wch [sic] all other notes of Antichrist doe agree. With all knowne objections, solidly, and fully answeared, yt [sic] can be materially made against it. By Francis Potter B.D [Earls of Macclesfield copy]

      Oxford: printed by Leonard Lichfield, , 1642. First Edition. Half-Calf. Near Fine. 4to: [16],214,[2]pp, with a copper-engraved title page showing numerical manifestations of ‘666’ and their supposed connections with the Catholic Church, signed: W.

Binding with strong joints, square text block, only minor scuffing and fading of the boards. A superb example. Provenance: book plate from the North Library of the Earls of Macclesfield and binder's ticket (Hatton of Manchester) on front paste down. Wing P3028. ESTC Citation No. R40657. Madan, II, 1032. First Edition one of the most curious and fascinating books published during the seventeenth century, Potter’s treatise on the Number of the Beast. Clergyman, instrument-maker and a founder of the Royal Society, Potter, according to the ODNB, "was interested in computing the number of the beast, connecting 25, the ‘appropinque’ square root of 666, with various institutions in the Roman Catholic church. His ideas were elaborated in a manuscript which was read in 1637 by Joseph Mede, and commended as a wonderful discovery, the ‘happiest that ever yet came into the world.'" Pepys considered it ‘mighty ingenious’. It continued to be influential and was reprinted in Worcester as late as 1808. Aubrey’s short ‘life’ of Potter paints a vivid picture of his character and highly inventive mind.

        Insulae divi Martini et Uliarius, vulgo L'Isle de Re et Oleron.

      Amsterdam: , c 1642. Size: 480 × 580 mm. Copperplate engraving with early wash colour. Dutch text on verso. Very good condition. A very fine and most attractive mid seventeenth century map of the delightful L'Isle de Ré and the L'Isle de Oleron in the Pictou-Charentes region of north west France. North is orientated to the left. This Blaeu map is typically detailed and precise and complemented by a number of subtle, decorative embellishments; compass roses, galleons, a divider and a mileage scale, a sea monster, and a discreet title cartouche. Throughout the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, the island alternated between belonging to the English or French crowns. In 1987, a 3 km bridge was constructed between the island and the mainland, making the island an attractive tourist and holiday destination.

      - Lidén I, s. 408 för Johannes Rosenhanes avhandling under Schefferus presidium. Drees 158, 160 resp. 161 för begravningsverserna, samtliga med alexandriner. Fint samlingsband med Rosenhaneskrifter. Den blivande presidenten för Tribunalet i Wismar Johan Rosenhane (1642-1710), son till Schering Rosenhane, var, tillsammans med sina bröder Axel och Bengt, elev till Johannes Schefferus. Hans avhandling om rådsherrens uppgifter och funktioner (utifrån exempel hos Cicero) blev ett viktigt instrument i författningskrisen mellan råd och ständer 1660, rörande förmyndarskapet för den minderårige Karl XI. I denna var inte minst pappa Schering aktiv förespråkare för maktfördelningslinjen där rådet (högadeln) skulle vara mera delaktig i styrelsen av riket. Avhandlingen går på samma linje; rådsherren är själva stödjepelaren på vilken samhället vilar. Se Runeby s. 518ff. Det var dock inte denne Johannes som dog 1661 och begravdes i Nyköping, utan hans farbror. Jonas Hambraeus (1588-1671), som skrev hyllningsversen till Schering Rosenhanes son Axels födelse 1637 (och eventuellt även den till Scherings bröllop med Beata Sparre), var sedan 1626 svensk predikant i den lutheranska kyrkan i Paris, och från 1628 professor i orientaliska språk vid Paris universitet. År 1636 var han dessutom kopplad till Hugo Grotius svenska ambassad i Paris. Hyllningen avslutas med en dikt av Jollivet. Bröllopshyllningen är i dramatisk form (ej i Klemming). I Paris bistod Hambraeus ofta unga svenska adelsmän på deras peregrinationer med penninglån, vilket mot slutet av hans liv straffade sig, då han sällan fick tillbaka sina pengar och t.o.m. hamnade i bysättningshäkte för sina skulder.

Ex-dono à la plume de l'époque et tampons de cire sur les gardes. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Rare édition originale de cette première histoire de Marseille qui ne connut pas de réédition sous cette forme. Un exemplaire en Suisse, un à Berlin et deux à Parme et Turin. Page de titre en rouge et noir comportant une grande vignette aux armes de Marseille entourée de la devise « Massillia Civitas ». L'exemplaire contient un plan de la ville dessiné par Jacques Maretz et gravé par Maretty, numérotant les « lieus [sic] les plus remarquables » de la cité, avant les agrandissements entrepris à partir de 1669. Quelques bois in-texte figurant des monnaies anciennes et des antiquités. Bandeaux et lettrines. Noms des auteurs évoqués en marge. Ex-libris à la plume de l'époque et tampon de cire sur les gardes. Importante reliure de l'époque en plein maroquin citron à semis de fleurs de lys, dos à cinq nerfs orné de roulettes dorées et de caissons fleurdelisés, large dentelle dorée en encadrement des plats frappés d'un semis de fleurs de lys doré, toutes tranches dorées. Mors, coiffes et coins habilement restaurés. Rousseurs éparses, un peu plus marquées en début de volume. Une amusante et très discrète restauration à l'endroit du sexe du putto de droite sur la carte. L'ouvrage, couvrant une période de l'Antiquité jusqu'à 1610, se divise en dix livres traitant des sujets suivants : - fondation de Marseille jusqu'à la guerre civile entre César et Pompée, ses peuples anciens, l'arrivée des Phocéens et l'étymologie du nom de la ville, - état de la ville pendant quatre siècles, sa place dans l'Empire romain et les différents gouvernements (burgondes, goths puis francs) qui y ont été établis sous les Empereurs, - puissance des vicomtes de Marseille et généalogie des comtes de Provence appelés par l'auteur « la première race », - rachat et contention de la Seigneurie par les Marseillais et alliance avec Nice et le Comte d'Empurias, - première convention entre Charles d'Anjou (comte de Provence) et la ville de Marseille et amitié du Roi de Castille, - mort du Roi René et passation de pouvoir à Charles du Maine, puis à Louis XI, - tentatives de siège déjouées et entrée du Roi Charles IX dans la ville, - prise de pouvoir de Charles de Casaulx, favorisée par la Comtesse de Sault, et tyrannie qu'il instaure à la fin du XVIème siècle, - ordre et succession des évêques de Marseille de Saint Lazare à Pierre Gérard, - différents édifices publics, encore en place ou en ruine. Antoine de Ruffi (1607-1689) est un historien marseillais ; il fut conseiller à la sénéchaussée de Marseille et conseiller d'état. Il est le petit-fils de Robert Ruffi (1542-1634), secrétaire et confident de Charles de Casaulx et premier archivaire rémunéré de la ville de Marseille. Après sa mort, Antoine de Ruffi conserva les papiers de son grand-père qui furent pour lui d'un secours documentaire précieux dans la rédaction de ses différents ouvrages historiques. En 1696, après la disparition d'Antoine, Louis-Antoine de Ruffi (1657-1724) publia une seconde édition augmentée de l'Histoire de la ville de Marseille qui fut en partie financée par la ville elle-même. Cette Histoire, qui connut un grand succès au moment de sa parution est, de nos jours encore, une référence incontournable de l'histoire marseillaise, de nombreux documents et lieux évoqués ayant aujourd'hui disparu. C'est la première fois qu'un historien entreprit de rédiger une histoire aussi étendue de la cité phocéenne, comme le souligne Ruffi dans sa préface : « Bien qu'un si noble sujet deut [dut] obliger les rares esprits qu'elle [Marseille] a produit de temps en temps d'exercer leur plume à descrire de si belles choses, & d'informer la postérité de ce qui estoit arrivé de remarquable dans leur Patrie : Il ne s'en est trouvé aucun qui ait voulu prendre la peine d'en recueillir l'Histoire, ou de laisser des mémoires de ce qu'il avoit veu ou appris de ses ancestres. » Ruffi donne une vision élogieuse et combative de Marseille : « l'Histoire de Marseille a dequoy prendre & tenir le Lecteur par les merveilles de sa naissance & de son progrez, par les changemens memorables de son Estat & de sa fortune, par les victoires qu'elle a r'emportées sur diverses Nations qui ont esté enuieuses de sa gloire ou ennemies de son repos, & par les marques de grandeur qui la rendent comparable aux plus celebres Republiques de l'Europe. » Souvent absent des exemplaires recensés, l'exceptionnel plan dépliant « en vue d'oiseau » présente une vision à la fois réaliste et synthétique, mettant en lumière les « lieus les plus remarquables » de la cité en 1597. La fin du XVIème siècle est marquée, dans l'histoire de Marseille, par la prise de pouvoir de Charles de Casaulx. Prenant la tête des ligueurs, il s'empare de la ville en 1591, imposant une dictature contre l'aristocratie marchande jusqu'en 1596, date de son assassinat. La carte met en évidence de grands monuments amenés à disparaître au cours des travaux de modernisation entrepris dans la seconde partie du siècle : l'enceinte fortifiée médiévale, rasée en 1660 après les critiques de Vauban, la Porte Réale, lieu historique d'entrée des souverains dans la ville, détruite en 1667 suite au décret royal de 1666 promulguant le développement d'une « ville nouvelle ». Les plans de Marseille avant cette grande extension à l'initiative de Louis XIV sont rares. Mais Jacques Maretz rend également hommage à des monuments disparus au moment de la parution de l'ouvrage de Ruffi. À l'extrémité ouest du promontoire Saint-Jean, il choisit de faire figurer une tour datant du XIVème siècle, alors disparue, et qui ne sera rebâtie qu'en 1644. Aujourd'hui encore elle porte le nom de « Tour du Fanal ». Ce fanal est évoqué dans l'édition de 1696 : « Il y avait autrefois à Marseille un Fanal pour éclairer les Vaisseaux qui venoient la nuit aborder en ce Port, afin de se garentir du danger ; il étoit scitué au même endroit où est celui qu'on voit maintenant, qui fut bâti l'an 1644. L'ancien Fanal étoit en état l'an 1351. » Le cartographe représente également les galères et les canons, symbolisant l'importance des infrastructures navales et des arsenaux présents depuis l'Empire romain, faisant de Marseille un port de guerre de premier ordre. Cet engouement pour les galères est sur le déclin au moment de la publication de l'ouvrage, ces dernières ayant été transférées à Toulon à l'arrivée de l'épidémie de peste en 1629. La carte de Maretz est donc bien un hommage à la Marseille médiévale, bientôt transfigurée par les grands travaux royaux. Les Marseillais sont d'ailleurs relativement hostiles à ces changements, comme le souligne Béatrice Hénin dans son étude « L'agrandissement de Marseille (1666-1690) : Un compromis entre les aspirations monarchiques et les habitudes locales » (in Annales du Midi : revue archéologique, historique et philologique de la France méridionale, 1986) : « Les rapports de Louis XIV et de Marseille sont placés sous le signe de l'orage. Dernière cité française à avoir manifesté quelque sursaut la ville sera durement matée par le jeune souverain auréolé de sa toute récente victoire contre l'Espagne, et ce l'année même de la signature du traité des Pyrénées, en 1660. Louis XIV, après que Marseille ait été écrasée par ses troupes, vient en effet en personne faire état de sa souveraineté. Sans crainte de froisser les susceptibilités locales, il pénètre dans la ville par une brèche faite dans les remparts alors que de tout temps les souverains étaient entrés par la porte Réale. Ce geste vise à démontrer aux Marseillais que leur ville fait partie intégrante du royaume et que ses privilèges ancestraux n'ont plus de raison d'être. » La volonté de Ruffi et de Maretz est la même, tous deux se font les ambassadeurs de cette Marseille médiévale forte et prospère. + de photos Superbe exemplaire parfaitement établi dans une reliure de l'époque en plein maroquin fleurdelisé.

The first edition of a learned essay on the origins of the American Indians. It was a reply to Grotius who had argued in 1642 that the American Indians were descendants of Norsemen, Ethiopians and Chinese, basing his theory mainly on linguistic arguments. Hornius criticized Grotius's philological approach and placed the origins of the American peoples in Scythia, Phoenicia, Carthage and China. The work is bound with Blesdijk's famous biography of the Anabaptist leader David Joris, edited by Jacobus Revius. It remains the most important source for the life and teaching of David Joris.Fine copies. With minor surface defects in the vellum, but binding still very good.

ESTC lists only two copies worldwide of this 1642 New Testament: one at the Mitchell Library, Glasgow and one at the John Carter Brown Library, Rhode Island. CONDITION. Good. External scuffing to all edges and corners, and the corners somewhat bumped, but otherwise sound. On the front free endpaper verso an inscription: "To Mrs Baldwyn Childe [presumably of Kyre Park, Worcestershire] with best Xmas Wishes 1911 from Rev W E & Mrs Taylor Kyre Rectory". Facing this, on the flyleaf, a more modern owner's signature in ink. Occasional brief marginal notes in ink appearing to pre-date the re-binding; otherwise internally clean. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        De motu impresso a motore translato. Epistolae duae.

      Paris: Ludovicus de Hequeville, 1642. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to [21.6 x 17.0 cm]. (4) ff., 159 (i.e. 151) pp., with woodcut device on title, woodcut diagrams, woodcut headpieces and initials. Bound in contemporary vellum, red sprinkled edges. Minor rubbing and handsoiling to covers, annotations on endpapers. Cancelled manuscript shelf mark on title, early annotations in several hands, small corner loss at p. 59. Rare first edition of Pierre Gassendi's (1592-1655) important illustrated treatise on inertial mechanics. Written in the form of two letters addressed to the scholar and keeper of the king's library Pierre Depuy (1582-1651), the De motu impresso "contains the first precise published formulation of the principle of inertia" as recently advanced by Galileo (Jones, p. 63). "Gassendi had taken up Galileo's research almost as soon as it had been published in the Two New Sciences in 1638. He made experiments with inclined planes and dropped stones from the mast of a moving ship and confirmed Galileo's results and predictions. On paper, he studied Galileo's unaccelerated and unretarded uniform horizontal motion in an imaginary space outside the world and succeeded in abstracting the first statement of the principle of inertia from both the intrinsic gravity and circular motion that had enthralled Galileo" (Hooper, pp. 149-50). "On one point - and it is an important one - [Gassendi] was more successful than Galileo: he correctly stated the principle of inertia. The experiment of the De motu impresso a motore translato, performed in 1640 in Marseilles, overthrew the argument of Copernicus's opponents against the movement of the earth. Gassendi arranged to have a weight dropped from the top of a vertical mast on a moving ship in order to demonstrate that it fell at the foot of the mast and not behind it, thus sharing in its fall the forward motion of the ship. Gassendi understood that the composition of motions is a universal phenomenon. Motion is, in itself, a physical state, a measurable quantity, not - as the Scholastics maintained - the change from one state to another. It changes only through the interposition of another movement or of an obstacle" (DSB, vols. 5 & 6, p. 288). "In this regard, Gassendi was able to take a step beyond Galileo's conclusions, drawing from this test a generalized principle of inertia (the Galilean version of inertia was fundamentally circular, given that bodies in motion would trace the earth's curve). Gassendi saw that the motion of the dropped stone at a sustained speed - in the absence of any contrary force or obstacle - is an instance of inertial motion, albeit one where the motion is compositional (describing the parabola). Indeed, neither compositionality nor directionality had any impact on inertial motion, Gassendi concluded: any body set in motion in any direction continues, unless impeded, in a rectilinear path" (See, Fisher). The De motu impresso is also notable for its diagrammatic representations of the mathematic of motion, namely in its abandonment of Galileo's 'triangle of speeds' in favor of "a visually and conceptually different representation based on a lattice of triangles" (Meli, p. 120, and see, Palmerino, passim).

        Panorama di Roma da Monte Mario

      1642 - Acquaforte, 1642, firmata in lastra in basso. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, piccoli restauri perfettamente eseguiti, per il resto in buono stato di conservazione. Inusuale veduta panoramica della città, presa dalle pendici di Monte Mario. La Basilica, in primo piano, è disegnata con grande dettaglio, come pure il panorama della città, dove sono riconoscibili numerose opere architettoniche. Il Silvestre, incisore e disegnatore, nasce a Nancy nel 1621. Tra il 1638 e il 1641 viaggiò in Italia; si hanno notizie della sua presenza nella Penisola ancora nel 1643 e nel 1653. Il suo stile fu, all’inizio, piuttosto sciolto, ma dal 1643 in poi divenne più raffinato e delicato, acquisendo accuratezza e precisione senza essere asciutto, risultando a volte simile a quello di Jacques Callot o di Stefano della Bella, con i quali ebbe rapporti di amicizia. Primo, in ordine cronologico, dei quattro panorami dedicati dall’artista francese alla città. Molto rara. Etching, 1642, signed on lower plate. Beautiful work, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to platemark, perfectly executed repairs at the upper right center, otherwise in very good condition. Panoramic and uncommon view of the city, from the slopes of Mount Mario. The Basilica in the foreground has been depicted in detail, as is the view of the city, where many buildings can be identified. Silvestre was drawer and engraver; he was born in Nancy in 1621. Between 1638 and 1641 Silvestre travelled along Italy and there are many evidences of his presence in the Peninsula between 1643 and 1653. In the first period of his career, his style was quite free, but after 1643 it became more delicate and refined, acquiring accuracy and precision but without loosing his beauty. It can also be said that his style was quite similar to that of Jacques Callot or Stefano della Bella, with whom he held a friendly relationship. This subject is the first out of four panoramic views he dedicated to the city.

        Bréves Arabicae Linguae Institutiones.

      ex Typographia Sac. Congregationis de Propaganda Fide,, Roma 1642 - Folio. 350 pp, woodcut device on title, blank leaf, woodcut printer`s device to title and a variant to verso of final f., ivory colour vellum binding of the period, professionally rebacked conserving original spine, hand written title on raised spine, binding rubbed, wear to edges, scattered foxing, ex Typographia Sac. Congregationis de Propaganda Fide, Excudebat Joseph David Luna, Maronita, Roma, First Edition, 1642. The work is well-printed, with the Arabic Bible types by Joseph David De Luna, a nephew of the Archbishop of Damascus Serius Risius; he styled himself in Arabic " Joseph of Mount Lebanon, from the town of Baslukith", when he printed also Guadagnolus’s Apologia of 1637. ( see Graf IV 252, Schnurrer 247). ***The rare first edition. We can trace only 2 other copies at auction since 1981, including the Camille Aboussouan copy (Sotheby`s, 17th June, 1993, lot 407). Guadagnoli (c.1596-1656) was the first Italian nominated as professor of Arabic at the at the Collegium Sapientiae in Heidelberg in 1642. He was instrumental in the printing of the Arabic Bible. In the preface the author explains how his grammar serves a special purpose. The Arabic Bible was at that time being printed in an unvocalised text in order to make it acceptable to the Arabic speaking world, and with this in mind Guadagnoli has paid special attention to the ratio et usus scribendi, and to the essential of metrics. (Schnurrer 72, Lambrecht 804, Smitskamp Philologia Orientalis 220). In the grammar we find printed for the first time the famous metrical poem Carmen Chazregiacum ( al-Qasida al-Hazragiya ) on pp. 286-329, and the Carmen de invocationibus (al-Qasida al-Minadat), printed according to Guadagnoli after a manuscript from the library of Della Valle. The Latter poem was also edited in 1745 by G. Kuypers. At the end of his grammar Guadagnoli printed also a few lines of an Arabic poem by the well known 15th century Maronite theologian Gabriel Ibn Al-Qula’i. ( See Graf III 331). ref.

Rotterdam: By Pieter van Waesberge, 1642. Two parts in one volume, each with title page. First part preceded by etched pictorial title page with eight vignettes. (One is an allegory of justice, the others illustrate brutal forms of execution and other draconian punishments.) [xvi], 366; [ii], 102 pp. 56 woodcut text illustrations. Octavo (7-1/2" x 4-1/2"). Contemporary vellum with lapped edges, early hand-lettered title to spine. Light soiling, corners and spine ends bumped, pastedowns loose, text block partially detached but secure. Some edgewear to front and rear endleaves, a bit of rubbing to fore-edge of title page. Moderate toning to text, light foxing to a few leaves, internally clean. An appealing copy of a rare imprint. * First published in 1551, this was the first comprehensive study of criminal procedure published in northern Europe. A synthetic work drawn mostly from Roman-Dutch sources, it was based on Philip Wielant's Practycke Crimineele (1439-1519) and other earlier treatises. Published in Latin, Dutch and French, it was standard authority throughout the continent for many years. This Dutch edition is illustrated throughout with woodcuts depicting adultery, murder, theft and many other crimes. Damhouder was an advisor to the Duke of Burgundy and a prolific author of legal and religious treatises. The 1642 Rotterdam imprint was also issued in Utrecht by Johan van Waesberge. Excepting their title pages, the two Waesberge imprints are identical. The 1642 Rotterdam edition, which is not listed in Dekkers, is quite rare. OCLC locates 7 copies, 2 in North America (University of Delaware, Yale).

Light toning, side notes and head-lines affected by trimming, legibility of some side-notes affected, clean tears and minor chips to edges of a few leaves, internally clean. * Only edition, one of three issues, all from 1642. A contemporary account from a Parliamentary perspective on the king's use of a medieval practice, the appointment of commissions of array, to raise a militia without Parliamentary consent. Considered illegal by Parliamentarians, including the author of this pamphlet. The king's move was a response to the Militia Act of 1641, which placed militias under Parliamentary control. The King declared, correctly, that this act was illegal because it was passed without royal assent. Both decrees were issued to gain control of existing militia forces and to raise more troops on the eve of the Civil War. This is a scarce title. Counting all three issues, OCLC locates 2 in North American law libraries (University of Minnesota, University of Pennsylvania). English Short-Title Catalogue R5073. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Ils ont suivi le texte que Gruter donna à Hambourg en 1618, qui est très-correct, et n'ont imprimé qu'une fois dans ce format les oeuvres complètes de cet illustre orateur. Il y a deux sortes d'exemplaires du volume des offices, qui ont long-temps été l'objet de discussions sur lesquelles ont s'enfin mis d'accord. Ces exemplairesne présentent entre eux aucune différence dans le texte jusqu'à la page 238; et tout porte à croire que jusque-là c'est la même édition, dont seulement on aura fait deux tirages; car, si d'un côté, toutes les remarques et tous les défauts de typographie sont communs aux deux espèces d'exemplaires, d'un autre côté les majuscules des signatures sont beaucoup plus grandes dans l'une que dans l'autre. A partir de la page 238, les exemplaires diffèrent entièrement. Dans tous les deux, la pagination recommence par le nombre 229; mais dans ceux où se trouve le Somnium Scipionis, le volume se termine à la page chiffré par erreur 237; tandis que dans les exemplaires ou le Somnium Scipionis est remplacé par le morceau intitulé Consolatio [wie im hier vorliegenden !], le volume finit à la page 301, et ce morceau est imprimé en lettres italiques, quoique le reste du volume soit en caractères romains. Ces derniers exemplaires sont ceux qui font partie de l'édition des oeuvres; et ce qui le prouve, c'est que le Somnium Scipionis se trouvant dans le volume des Fragmenta, ferait un double emploi; pendant que le Consolatio qui, à la vérité, n'est pas de Cicéron, mais qu'on a l'habitude de joindre à ses oeuvres, manquerait. Ce volume des offices a été réimprimé à Amsterdam en 1656 et en 1677. Les beaux exemplaires de cette édition sont rares et ont un valeur considérable. M. Renouard en possède un dont la hauteur est de 5 pouces 1 ligne [= ca. 13,6 cm]. A la vente de M. Caillard, un exemplaire moins beau fut vendu 261 francs; `a celle de Crevenna, un autre fut porté jusqu'à 440 francs, en dernier lieu, l'exemplaire de M. Mac-Carthy a été payé 277 francs.

        Insulae divi Martini et Uliarius, vulgo L'Isle de Re et Oleron.

      Amsterdam: c 1642 - Size: 480 × 580 mm. Copperplate engraving with early wash colour. Dutch text on verso. Very good condition. A very fine and most attractive mid seventeenth century map of the delightful L'Isle de Ré and the L'Isle de Oleron in the Pictou-Charentes region of north west France. North is orientated to the left. This Blaeu map is typically detailed and precise and complemented by a number of subtle, decorative embellishments; compass roses, galleons, a divider and a mileage scale, a sea monster, and a discreet title cartouche. Throughout the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, the island alternated between belonging to the English or French crowns. In 1987, a 3 km bridge was constructed between the island and the mainland, making the island an attractive tourist and holiday destination.

        La Vie de Claude Bernard dit le Pauvre Prestre [The Life of Claude Bernard, the Poor Priest]

      Claude Sonnius & Denis Bechet, Paris 1642 - Text in French. Measures 7" X 5" and 567 pages. Very good full vellum binding. Joints are fine and hinges are fine. Vellum covers curling mildly, as vellum does. Provided with a custom cut removable protective Mylar cover. Contents are very good. Some soil and light water stains on first few pages. Otherwise the book is clean and bright inside. Old bookplate. The author, Thomas Le Gauffre, was principal advisor to the King's court, first bishop of New France in 1645, and was designated as spiritual successor of Father Claude Bernard. Father Claude Bernard (December 23, 1588 - March 23, 1641) was a French Roman Catholic priest who was active in ministry to prisoners and criminals, especially those condemned to death. Known as "le pauvre pretre" (the poor priest), he is primarily remembered as the popularizer of the Memorare, over 200,000 copies of which he distributed by leaflets printed in various languages. His father was a distinguished lawyer. Young Bernard was educated at the Jesuit College of Dole and was remarked for his brilliant imagination and wit. Pierre Le Camus, Bishop of Belley, urged him to enter the priesthood, but he declined, saying that he preferred the life of a poor gentleman to that of a poor priest. Shortly afterwards he went to Paris as a protégé of M. de Bellegarde, Governor of Bourgogne. For a while the social life of the capital attracted him. By one account, about this time, he had a dream of his late father warning him against the worldliness to which he was addicted. Gradually, some disappointments and the death of an intimate friend who was killed in a duel, brought about a decided change in his mode of life and led up to his entrance into the priesthood. He was ordained by the Bishop Le Camus and invited to his first Mass the poor of the city, distributing to them all his possessions, and, later, an inheritance of 400,000 livres, or about eighty thousand dollars. Henceforth Bernard devoted himself to the service of the poor, and delighted in the name of "the poor priest". The poor, the sick and the prisoners were his special care; He fed, nursed, consoled, and instructed them with more than motherly tenderness. This life of self-sacrifice seemed rather to increase his personal charms. Wealthy and distinguished persons sought his company, and for honor of entertainment at his modest table contributed abundantly to his charities. His kindly wit never deserted him. When Cardinal Richelieu once pressed upon him the acceptance of some favors he replied that he would be pleased if stronger boards were placed in the tumbril, or cart, on which the condemned were taken to execution. "It is a pity," he said, "that the constant dread of falling through the vehicle should distract our attention from God." Bernard's methods were characterized by some as odd and reprehensible. He continued, however to enjoy the friendship and admiration of saintly priests like Bourdoise, Olier, and St. Vincent de Paul; an ample justification of his character and sacerdotal ministry. In the history of charity, he bears a striking resemblance to St. Francis of Assisi and St. Vincent de Paul, and his beatification has often been urged by the royal court and by the clergy of France. He founded at Paris, for the education of the poor candidates for the priesthood, the seminary of Trent-Trois which still exists. He contributed much to popularize the beautiful prayer to the Blessed Virgin known as the Memorare, sometimes attributed to him but certainly of an earlier date. In addition to this virtually unobtainable contemporary biography, he was the subject of another French biography in 1913 by Commandeur de Broqua, who was the postulator for the cause of Fr. Bernard's canonization. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

The general half-title has been doubled and restored in low margin by a strip of paper ancienne.Adrian Morlière, canon of the cathedral of Amiens gathered throughout his life an awful lot of material on the history of his city . The book proceeds in the form of articles and does not use the classic but summary of the annal form, but the autograph dedication of the authors have a time evolution, Roman to modern times. We distinguish a catalog of the bishops of Amiens, the Counts and Governors or Lieutenant of the city. The Treaty on the Houses of Picardie contain valuable information. In addition to the historical, the author added to the end of each part of many poems of his own. Although the focus is mainly put more on the history of the city, there are many sections on churches, the ramparts and the description of the city. "Although the 'book The Morlière is poorly written, but it is useful & necessary, and even rare" notes Lenglet-Dufresnoy. At today's reader, the book will mainly appear messy in its first part, but full lessons on the city. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
