        Recueil des statuts, ordonnances, reiglements, antiquitez, prérogatives, & prééminences du Royaume de la Bazoche. Ensemble plusieurs arrests donnez pour l'establissement & conservation de sa iurisdiction. Le tout addressé à Mr. Boyvinet, Chancelier en icelle, en la présente année 1644.

      Paris, Claude Bonjan 1644 - in-8, 8-148 pp., [2] ff. n. ch. (table, errata et privlège), veau blond, dos à nerfs finement cloisonné et fleuronné, pièce de titre bouteille, encadrement de simple filet doré sur les plats, tranches dorées, dentelle intérieure (rel. du XIXe s.). Infime galerie de vers marginale et stoppée en fin de volume, restauration aux mors mais bel exemplaire. Edition originale. - Comme l'on sait, la Basoche, communauté des clercs des Procureurs du Parlement de Paris, formait une société à part, régie par ses propres règles, exerçant une quasi-juridiction sur ses membres. Moins sous l'éclairage historique général que les titulaires des grands offices du Parlement, elle eut une importance égale, notamment en soutenant en corps les revendications parlementaires tout au long de son existence. Elle formait presque un Etat dans l'Etat, à laquelle le pouvoir royal touchait moins que les officiers de judicature, sur lequel il possédait des leviers financiers. Dupin (1832), 1075. Exemplaire du marquis de Clapiers, avec vignette ex-libris armoriée contrecollée sur les premières gardes : vraisemblablement Lazare-Alfred de Clapiers-Collongues (1823-1887), qui avait réuni une impressionnante collection de livres et de manuscrits. L'ouvrage passa ensuite à la bibliothèque du chanteur lyrique Yves Durand-Noël (1886-1968, vignette ex-libris gravée par Decaris). [Attributes: First Edition]

        Le Mercure de Gaillon, ou Recueil des pièces curieuses, tant hiérarchiques que politiques.

      Gaillon, Imprimerie du château archiépiscopal, 1643-1644, - 24 pièces en un vol. in-4, [6] ff. n. ch.

Légères restaurations. Edition originale de cette impression privée de la plus grande rareté. Gaillon était le domaine des archevêques de Rouen depuis que Georges d'Amboise l'avait léguée au diocèse. François II de Harlay de Champvallon (1586-1653) fut d'abord coadjuteur, puis archevêque de Rouen (1614-1651, il résigna son siège en faveur de son neveu François III). Remarquable administrateur et réformateur, il avait aussi des visées littéraires qui trouvèrent à s'exprimer dans sa résidence où il fonda une Académie et imprimer quantité d'opuscules. Il n'avait pas besoin de l'autorisation d'imprimer du Parlement de Rouen, nécessaire dans sa capitale. Les presses fonctionnèrent à partir de 1608 sous la direction de Henri III Estienne, un des fils de Robert II. Notre exemplaire est bien complet de toutes ses pièces, telles que répertoriées dans la table, imprimées séparément au départ et qui possèdent chacune un titre ou leur page de titre propre ; elles concernent l'histoire de Normandie, ou celle de l'archidiocèse de Rouen : I. Traitté des Rois de France avec es archevesques de Roüen, par lequel ils les obligent de venir une fois l'an à leur Cour, à la charge qu'ils les en feront convenablement semondre, & qu'ils envoyeront au devant d'eux un honorable convoy à Chaumont, ou à Ponthoise, selon que la Cour sera à Beauvais, ou à Paris, ou à Senlis (8 pp.). - II.

Fait par le grand philosophe & grand homme d'Estat Sénèque, au livre qu'il a composé, Du Repos ou retraite du Sage (4 pp.). - III. Excellente conclusion du discours de Maternus, qui décide la question politique, si aux gens d'estude la retraicte des livres est préférable à la faveur & entremise du gouvernement ? (traduction de Quintilien, 4 pp.). - IV. Lettre (.) à l'Eminentissime cardinal duc de Richelieu ; en faveur de la province ([2] ff. n. ch.). - V. Mandatum archiepiscopale super nova editione & postrma recognitione officii ecclesiastici Rothomagensis breviarii (3 pp.). - VI.

        Historiæ Danicæ Libri XVI.

      Stephanus Iohannis Stephanius Summo Studio recognovit, Notisque uberioribus illustravit. Sorø: Joachim Moltke 1644. + S.J. Stephanii: Notæ Vberiores in Historiam Danicam Saxonis Grammatici. Una cum Prolegomenis ad easdem notas. Soræ: Henrici Crusii 1645. To dele i ét bd. Med kobberstukket titelblad visende bl.a Christian IV og forfatteren. I Stephanius' kommentarbind træsnit af runestene, prospekter m.m. 4to. (8) + 384 + (22) + 60 + 252 + (22) s. Pænt og rent eksemplar med enkelte understregninger indbundet i samtidigt helpergament, præget af tidens tand, med håndskreven forfatternavn på ryggen.Two parts in one vol. Engraved titlepage showing Christian IV and the author et al. In Stephanius' commentary vol. are woodcuts of runes, prospects etc. Nice copy, weakly marked of age, bound in contemporary full vellum with handwritten authors' name on spine.. I 1645 (på titelbladet 1644) udkom efter langvarige besværligheder Stephanius' Saxoudgave samt den udførlige kommentar hertil, frugten af mange års arbejde. For første gang forelå Saxo i en virkelig læselig form til afløsning af Chr. Pedersens temmelig ufuldkomne tekst, og for første gang er en middelalderlig historiker behandlet med samme filologiske metode som en klassisk oldtidsforfatter. De træskårne illustrationer stammer i vid udstrækning fra de samme forme som Worm havde anvendt i "Monumenta Danica" og nu stillede til rådighed. I sin indledning drøfter Stephanius de problemer, der knytter sig til Saxo som person og forfatter, og i "Notæ" giver han tekstkritiske og sproglige forklaringer, påviser Saxos benyttelse af citater navnlig fra sølvalderens forfattere, leverer realkommentarer hentet fra litterære og antikvariske kilder. - "så er Stephanius' Saxo dog en bedrift ikke blot nationalhistorisk set, men også efter europæisk målestok." [H. D. Schepelern].Såvel denne udg. af Saxo som Stephanius' noter har således været meget betydningsfuld for Saxo-forskningen.This edit. of Saxo as well as Stephanius' notes have been very important to the study of Saxo. It was the philological accomplishment of its day. Stephanius succeded in correcting the trational text, published 1514, and illuminated it through references to Saxo's linguistic and stylistic models. An accompanying volume of notes contained much learned commentary and illustrations.Brunet V, 175. Graesse VI, 287. Fiske I, 506. Bibl. Dan. III,9. Glahn 292, 293. Sibbernsen 119-27. Thesaurus 668.

      Frankfurt/M., Kempff und Schönwetter, 1644-1645.. 2 Teile (von 3) in 1 Band. 4to. (22,9:18,5 cm). 3 Bll., 388; 207 S., 2 Bll. Mit gestochenem Zwischentitel. Lederband der Zeit auf fünf Bünden mit Farbschnitt; Kanten, Kapitale und Ecken berieben und bestoßen, Lederbezug an den Gelenken geplatzt (Bindung fest), Rückenvergoldung und Rückentitel verblaßt.. Deutsche Ausgabe des berühmten Fürstenspiegels des Antonio de Guevara (1481-1545, spanischer Schriftsteller, Hofprediger und Chronist Karls V., Bischof von Guadix und Mondonedo). Der politisch-moralische Traktat über das Verhalten und die Erziehung der Fürsten erschien erstmals 1529. Guevara lehnt sich dabei an Xenophons 'Kyru Paideia' (Erziehung des Kyros) an, indem er "Verhaltensregeln für den Fürsten anhand einer Pseudobiographie Mark Aurels aufstellt. [...] Das Werk ist das beredte Spiegelbild einer am Hof Karls V. orientierten Lebenspraxis." (KNLL VII, 33f). - In 'De Molestiis Aulae' schildert Guevara "als ehemaliger Page der Königin Isabella der Kathgolischen und Hofprediger, Chronist und Reisebegleiter Karls V. [...] das Hofleben aus eigener Anschauung. [...] Ein 'goldener Käfig', eine 'gefährliche Krankheit', 'ein langsamer Tod' sei das Leben am Hof, wo es von Dieben, Betrügern, Falschspielern, Kupplerinnen und Zuhältern wimmelt und Klatschmäuler, Schmeichler und Lügner die Wortführer sind. [...] Dagegen hat das Leben auf dem Land manchen Vorteil: Es ist friedlicher, ungezwungener, gesünder, Gelegenheiten zur Sünde bietet es kaum, und zu dem ist es billig." (Kindler). - Die beiden Werke bilden Teil 2 und 3 der Ausgabe 'Opera Omnia Historico-Poltitica'. Der Teil 1 der Werkausgabe, das "Güldene Sendschreiben" ist hier nicht enthalten. "Monumental collected edition produced by the publishing firm of Schönwetter which had a predilection for catholic literature. Vols. 2 and 3 have variant titles; vol. 2 has also an engraved title page." ( Faber du Faur 901). Der Kupfertitel (zu Teil 2) zeigt eine Fürstengestalt, mit symbolhaften Attributen (Engel und Lilienblüten) als tugendhaft stilisiert. - Vgl. Goed. II, 583, 42; Hayn-G. II, 704; VD 17 23:000641E und VD17 23:000188G. - Nur stellenweise ganz wenige Fleckchen, am Schluß mit schwachem Wasserrand; fliegendes Vorsatzblatt mit Kleberesten eines Exlibris.

Handsomely bound in full 17th Century brown leather with elaborate hand-tooled decorations. A gilt- titled red leather label with gilt-decorations within blind ruled raised bands adorn the spine.

[24], 452 & [52] pages, with the title page printed in red and black decorated with a superb pictorial printer&#39;s mark depicting three bees on a crest beneath a banner bearing a cross within a formal decorated shield. Winged profiles of a man and woman top the corners of the shield. The whole is itself framed by red tassels. The book is further decorated with engraved initials and head- and tail-pieces. The title page is lightly soiled & slightly darkened with minor chips along the edges. The text block is cracked opposite the "Index Decisionum" leaf. The front edge of the last leaf is darkened with minor chips. A beautiful book in a superb 17th century binding. <p>Provenance: From the Jesuit Society in Antwerp identified and originally dated in ink at the top of the title page as from "Domus Professa Soc. Jesu Antwerp 1644". Subsequently from the "Bibliotheca Domus B. M. Virg. perpecuo Succursu. E. 61st St. New York" with their purple stamp affixed to the title page and the top of the first page of the "Index Decisionum".<p>Zacharia [Zaccaria] Pasqualigo (1600- 1664) was an ecclesiastical official who passed judgment on Galileo in the Catholic Church&#39;s prosecution of the astronomer. He signed his judgments as regular clerk, regular clerk, professor of Sacred Theology to the Most Eminent and Reverend Lord Cardinal [Marzio] Ginetti, Vicar of Our Most Holy Lord Pope Urban VIII. [Ironically, two of Pasqualigo&#39;s works were subjected to the Index Librorum Prohibitorum.] A Theatine theologian, Pasqualigo developed a doctrine of metaphysics in reaction to those propounded by the Jesuit theologian, Francisco Suarez. His doctrine concerning the nature of metaphysics proposes that the subject with which it deals is intrinsically material and therefore it is not possible to separate the physical matter from the spiritual.

(22) pp., 1 f. (blank), 310 pp., 1 f. (blank) + (16), 331 pp.. The uncommon first edition of Descartes' main work of physics, the seminal "Principles of Philosophy", one of the most important works of philosophy and physics since Aristotle. It is in this groundbreaking work that the "Cogito ergo sum" ("I think, therefore I am") appears for the first time in the form in which we know it today and here that Descartes elaborates properly on it and puts it into the context that has been formative for philosophy - and modern thought in general - since then. Futhermore, it is in this work that we find the first formulation of what is now known as "Newton's First Law of Motion", which Newton borrowed from Descartes and later included in his own "principia". The "Principles of Philosophy" is in many ways related to the "Discourse on the Method"; Descartes had a translation made into Latin of that work in 1644 and it is likely that he intended this to accompany the first printing of his "Principles". And so, as is often the case, we here have withbound the first printing of the "Specimina Philosophiae", which constitutes the first translation into Latin of the "Discours" - which as opposed to general assumption does not contain the phrase "ego cogito, ergo sum". Nonetheless, this first Latin edition played a seminal role in the spreading of Descartes' ideas, as well into the 19th century, the Latin version reached a far larger audience than the French text.As such, the present volume can arguably be considered the principal source of Cartesian thought and the main influence on contemporary as well as later philosophical and scientific thinking.The "Principles", which was written in Latin, published in 1644, and translated into French in 1647, constitutes Descartes' general system of physics. In 1637, in the "Discourse", Descartes had put forward a limited sample of his new philosophy, accompanied by the essays on optics, meteorology, and geometry, to which he applied his method. This work recounted his own life journey and explained how he had come to the position of doubting his previous knowledge and seeking to begin afresh. It did not, however, contain the actual principles of his physics. Only after having published his "Meditations", could he actually present to the world his entire physics. "Once Descartes had presented his metaphysics, he felt free to proceed with the publication of his entire physics. However, he needed first to teach it to speak Latin, the lingua franca of the seventeenth century. He hatched a scheme to publish a Latin version of his physics (the "Principles") together with a scholastic Aristotelian work on physics, so that the comparative advantages would be manifest. For this purpose, he chose the "Summa philosophiae" of Eustace of St. Paul. That part of his plan never came to fruition. His intent remained the same: he wished to produce a book that could be adopted in the schools, even Jesuit schools such as La Flêche. Ultimately, his physics was taught in the Netherlands, France, England, and parts of Germany...The extant "Principles" offer metaphysics in Part I; the general principles of physics, in the form of his matter theory and laws of motion, are presented in Part II, as following from the metaphysics; Part III concerns astronomical phenomena; and Part IV covers the formation of the earth and seeks to explain the properties of minerals, metals, magnets, fire, and the like, to which are appended discussions of how the senses operate and a final discussion of methodological issues in natural philosophy." (SEP).Setting forth the principles of nature, i.e. the laws of physics, Descartes here presented a work of fundamental significance to the trajectory of modern physics. Most notably, he set forth the principle that in the absence of external forces, an object's motion will be uniform and in a straight line - the principle that is now known as "Newton's First Law of Motion", which Newton borrowed directly from the present work and included in his own "Principia". As to its impact upon modern philosophy, the present work can hardly be over-estimated. It is here that arguably the most famous sentence in the entire history of philosophy - "ego cogito, ergo sum" - appears for the first time in this iconic form, and it is likewise here that Descartes' famous note to it and his full elaboration of the concept appear for the first time. Descartes first wrote the phrase in French in his "Discours de la Méthode". He then referred implicitly to it in "Meditationes de Prima Philosophia", but without explicitly stating the familiar form of the phrase. The earliest written record of the phrase in Latin, in the form in which we know it and refer to it to this day, is in the first printing of the present work, "Principia Philosophiae", where he also provides a clear explanation of his intent in a margin note.The paragraph that has gone down in history as formative for the trajectory of modern philosophy, goes like this (Part 1, article 7):"Sic autem rejicientes illa omnia, de quibus aliquo modo possumus dubitare, ac etiam, falsa esse fingentes, facilè quidem, supponimus nullum esse Deum, nullum coelum, nulla corpora; nosque etiam ipsos, non habere manus, nec pedes, nec denique ullum corpus, non autem ideò nos qui talia cogitamus nihil esse: repugnat enim ut putemus id quod cogitat eo ipso tempore quo cogitat non existere. Ac proinde haec cognitio, "EGO COGITO, ERGO SUM" [in italics in the original], est omnium prima & certissima, quae cuilibet ordine philosophanti occurrat."And the famous margin note to this paragraph: "Non posse à nobis dubitari, quin existamus dum dubitamus: at que hoc esse primum quod ordine philosophando cognoscimus."(Translation: "While we thus reject all of which we can entertain the smallest doubt, and even imagine that it is false, we easily indeed suppose that there is neither God, nor sky, nor bodies, and that we ourselves even have neither hands nor feet, nor, finally, a body; but we cannot in the same way suppose that we are not while we doubt of the truth of these things; for there is a repugnance in conceiving that what thinks does not exist at the very time when it thinks. Accordingly, the knowledge, "I think, therefore I am", is the first and most certain that occurs to one who philosophizes orderly." Note: "That we cannot doubt of our existence while we doubt, and that this is the first knowledge we acquire when we philosophize in order.").- AND THUS, THE BEDROCK OF FUTURE PHILOSOPHICAL AND SCIENTIFIC METHODOLOGY HAD BEEN FORMULATED. The "Specimina philosophiae" constitutes the first Latin translation of the "Discours de la méthode", with considerable amendments (and without the essay on Geometry). "The "Specimina philosophiae" (Amsterdam: Elzevier, 1644) are preceded by a notice in which Descartes authorizes the text as a faithful translation of his "Discours" and "Essais", and announces that he has made some changes in the original content. This raises questions about the nature, extent and background of these authorial interventions - questions that are all the more important because until well into the 19th century, the Latin version reached a far larger audience than the French text. Nonetheless, the differences between both texts had never been researched systematically..." (review of Corinna Vermeulen's thesis on the "Specimina Philosophiae").There is no doubt that the publication of the "Specimina" was somehow connected to that of the "Principia Philosophiae", which explains why the two works are often found together. Presumably, Descartes saw the "Principia" as the fulfilment of the the thought hinted at or presented in the "Discours" and desired the wider audience to have access to the principal theories of that work also when reading the full development of his physics and philosophy as formulated in the "Principia". Also, the "Specimina" specifies the ways in which the physical principles could be applied, and as such it constitutes a natural appendix to the principal work (i.e. the "Principles"). This might also explain why the Latin translation of the "Discours" (i.e. the "Specimina") has the parts on optics and on meteorology, but not the geometry

Very attractive copies from the library of Hermann Conring (1606-81), professor of natural history at Helmstädt who made important contributions to medicine (he was an early convert to Harvey&#39;s ideas), law, and politics. With his 19-line epigraph on Descartes on the free front endpaper and signature dated 1645. I. First edition "of this monumental system of the world, the most comprehensive of all of Descartes&#39; works. Dedicated to his friend, Princess Elizabeth, daughter of the Elector Palatine, Frederick V, its three treatises embrace the whole of his philosophy, with the exception of the moral... "In Part I, Descartes sets out the basic principles of his investigation pursuing the methods developed in his Discourse on Method... "Part II is devoted to the nature of the physical world and the means by which we may comprehend it. Fundamental to Descartes&#39; physical theories was his conviction that all space was occupied, space was identified with matter, all matter was infinitely extensible and infinitely divisible; within the context of this theory a vacuum was impossible as was the existence of atoms... "Also presented in Part II are Descartes&#39; three laws of motion: the first is the conventional statement that a body at rest remains at rest until set in motion by some outside agency, and, concomitantly, that a body in motion remains so until met with resistance. His second law states that moving bodies tend to continue in a straight line; consequently, for a body to move in a circle or an arc it must be subjected to forces other than those which initially set it in motion. His third law and the seven secondary rules which he derived from it are more controversial... "Part III not only presents Descartes&#39; conception of the structure of the world, but represents the first serious attempt at a mechanical explanation of the solar system. The Vortex Theory boldly attempted to reduce the phenomena of the universe to a single mechanical principle. &#39;Even after Newton had shown that the Cartesian system was impossible as a dynamical system, the theory lingered on, and for more than a generation efforts were continually being made to patch up the fabric before it finally collapsed.&#39;-Scott, 167-168."-Roberts & Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica, pp. 91-92. II. First Latin edition of Descartes&#39; Discours de la Méthode; this edition contains important revisions by the author. The first edition, published in 1637, marks the starting point of the Cartesian system of natural philosophy, which stands in time between Bacon and Newton. His famous "Cogito, ergo sum" first appeared in this form in this edition. The book includes important observations on optics in the Dioptrice. Fine crisp copies. &#10087; See Printing and the Mind of Man 129 and Horblit 24 for the first edition. .

A very good copy.

Thomas Brightman (1562?1607) was an English clergyman and biblical commentator. His exegesis of the Book of Revelation, published posthumously, proved influential. According to William M. Lamont, Brightman and Joseph Mede were the two most important ?revisionists? of the interpretation and eschatology set down by John Foxe; among Brightman's contributions was to weaken the imperial associations tied to the Emperor Constantine I. The detailed reading, in favour of the Genevan and Scottish churches, and condemning the 'Laodicean' (lukewarm) Church of England, helped to move on the Puritan conceptions of church reform and its urgency... As a preacher he was celebrated, though his disaffection from the church establishment was no secret. (Wikipedia). MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST.

In 1579 the dialogues were translated into English by the Elizabethan physician Thomas Twyne (1543¿1613) and titled Phisicke Against Fortune. Petrarch's literary genius helped inform the Italian Renaissance. The dialogues, completed towards the end of Petrarch's life, are treasure-chests of wisdom and humour which, despite the passing of six centuries, have not lost their relevance. They display remarkably lucid ideas that are cogently expressed. Drawing on classical sources, Petrarch expounded on refinement in taste and intellect, on finesse and propriety in speech and style. The writing is a bouquet of moral philosophy, set out to show how thought and deed can generate happiness on the one hand, or sorrow and disillusionment on the other. In a recurring theme throughout the dialogues, Petrarch advises humility in prosperity and fortitude in adversity. ****(French description française)****Auteur : Petrarque - Francesco Petrarca (Traduction de François De Grenaille) Titre : Le Sage résolu contre la fortune. / Dédié à Monseigneur le chancelier.

      A Poitiers, par Abraham Mounin, Imprimeur & libraire, 1644. Grand in / 4 reliure plein veau du temps, frontispice gravé, vignette en page de titre, planche (portrait de François de la Roche Foucault), bandeaux, lettrines historiées, 19 f., 666 p.

BOUCHET Jean, poète et écrivain Français, né à Poitiers, en 1476, mort vers 1550 , montra de bonne heure un véritable talent pour la poésie. A peiné âgé de vingt ans, il présenta, en 1496, à Lyon, quelques - unes de ses productions à Charles VIII.

Contemporary mottled calf (head and tail of spine slightly worn). Ward & Carozzi 254. First edition in French of Boodt's fundamental manual on mineralogy and gemmology. Boodt (ca.1550-1632), court physician to Rudolf II, 'made the first attempt at a systematic description of minerals, dividing the minerals into great and small, rare and common, hard and soft, combustible and incombustible, transparent and opaque. He usues a scale of hardness expressed in three degrees and notes the crystalline forms of some minerals (triangular, quadratic, and hexangular). ... He enumerates about 600 minerals that he knows from personal observation, and describes their properties, values, imitations, and medical applications. There are also tables of values of diamonds according to their size and short description of the polishing of precious stones' (Wlodzimierz Hubicki in DSB). The woodcuts illustrate crystals, gemstones, and a variety of cutting and polishing equipment.
