LA CALPRENEDE (Gauthier de Costes de).
12 vols. in-8. Rel. pleine basane du XVIIIème, dos à nefs ornés de caissons à fleurons dorés, pièce de titre et de tom., tranches rouges (rel. usagées et accidentées, plusieurs coins usés, manques de matière en tête et pied de plusieurs volumes, charnières fendues à deux plats, plusieurs mors fendus, qqs. rousseurs et brunissures éparses, cernes pâles, néanmoins int. frais). Reliure à restaurer. Edition fort rare, en partie originale, de ce vaste roman dédié au grand Condé. Cette œuvre gigantesque, saluée aussi bien par Madame de Sévigné que par La Fontaine ou La Rochefoucauld, est caractéristique du roman héroïque, en vogue au milieu du XVIIe siècle, dans le sillage de l'hôtel de Rambouillet. « La beauté des sentiment - écrivait Madame de Sévigné - la violence des passions, la grandeur des événements et le succès miraculeux des redoutables épées des héros, tout cela m'entraîne comme une petite fille ». La Fontaine, pour sa part, plaçait ce roman parmi les plus beaux de son temps. C'est dans Cléopâtre qu'apparait le personnage resté légendaire du fier Artaban. Publié entre 1647 et 1658, l'ouvrage connut aussitôt le succès et les différents volumes en furent réimprimés successivement. On n'en connaît, de ce fait, pratiquement pas d'exemplaires homogènes et ceux de la Bibliothèque nationale sont composés l'éditions différentes. Notre exemplaire contient 6 volumes (tomes 7 à 12) en premier état. Chaque volume, à l'exception du t. XI, est précédé d'un frontispice de François Chauveau ou non signé. Le t. I (« jouxte la copie imprimée, A Paris, chez la Veuve Nicolas de Cergy … [Click Below for Full Description]

GASSENDI, Pierre
Woodcut printer's device on title & one engraved plate with a port. of Epicurus. 4 leaves, 5-236, [18] pp. 4to, cont. French sheep (head & foot of spine neatly repaired, several signatures lightly browned), single gilt fillet round sides, spine richly gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Lyons: G. Barbier, 1647. First edition of an important book; this life of Epicurus, which emphasized his philosophy of physics, was the foundation of Gassendi's Epicurean atomism. His atomic theory was applied to chemistry by Boyle and adopted by Newton in his new mechanical philosophy. "Before Galileo and Descartes had succeeded in combining mathematics with mechanics, the chief refuge of hard-headed opponents of scholastic verbalism and Renaissance Platonism was the tradition of Greek atomism...Its chief representative during the period of Cartesian domination was Gassendi, who stands both as the climax of Epicurean atomism of the Renaissance in its accommodation to a mathematical science of nature, and as the first of the explorers of the implications of that science for the traditional empirical philosophy of knowledge. Gassendi is thus with Hobbes one of the fathers of 'scientific' empiricism...Gassendi indeed fancied himself the creator of the great rival scientific system to that of Descartes, the system founded on sound experience. History has reserved that distinction for Hobbes; yet it probable that Gassendi contributed far more to the actual advance of scientific ideas than his more consistent and gifted British fellow-worker."­J.H.

LOSTELNEAU.
A Paris, de l'imprimerie d'Estienne Migon, MDCXLVII (1647). in-folio, pp. (12), 459, (1), leg. coeva in p. pelle, dorso a nervi con tit. e fregi oro (restauri alle cerniere). Precede l'opera dedica a Luigi XIV. Prima edizione di questo curioso trattato militare, vero e proprio tour de force della tipografia a colori. Con 48 incisioni (spesso firmate con il monogramma ''CR'') in rame a piena pagina n.t. di soldati e oltre 400 illustrazioni tipografiche (alcune su ff. ripiegati) in due o tre colori, testatine, finalini ed iniziali istoriate. I soldati sono raffigurati mentre imparano a destreggiarsi con le armi. Estienne Mignon inoltre invent? e perfezion? questo particolare metodo basato su piccoli stampi quadrati, rotondi e rettangolari di metallo per simulare, tramite l'ausilio anche di differenti colori (rosso, giallo e nero), i possibili schieramenti delle truppe sul campo di battaglia. A ciascun ordine della fanteria e cavalleria ? infatti assegnato un colore per rendere maggiormente comprensibile la schematizzazione grafica compiuta dall'autore. L'effetto finale ? quello di vere e proprie disposizioni geometriche colorate. Le illustrazioni sarebbero tratte dalla Wapenhandelinghe di Jacob de Gheyn (The Hague, 1607), mentre il testo sarebbe ispirato al Kriegskunst zu Fuss (1615) di Johann Jacobi von Wallhausen. Manuale pratico di estremo interesse e rarit? Ottimo esempl. (nota di possesso al tit. ''Paulus Boursier Taurinensis'') Olschki, Choix I, 108. Brunet III, 1178. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Beaumont, Francis and John Fletcher (Gentlemen)
Humphrey Robinson, London, 1647 - First collected edition. 1 volume complete. Lacks portrait frontispiece of Fletcher. Folio in fours. Title page backed. Pp. [i-lii], 1-75 [76], 1-143 [144], 1-165 [166-168], 1-71 [72], 1-172, 1-92, 1-50 [i.e. 52], 1-28, 25-48 , with the usual occasional mispagination: few marginalia not affecting the text and some brown foxing spots but not affecting the readability of the text. The first few and final pages have a brown spot at the top margins but not reaching the text. This is the last of the three great published collections of Jacobean drama. The work contains 34 plays and a masque., All pages are in order confirmed by the catchwords though page numbers as occasionally misnumbered. Bound in later full calf with raised bands and compartments with red and black leather labels with gilt titles and with blind borders. "The 1647 folio has attracted significant attention from scholars and bibliographers, and various specialised studies of the folio (books on the book) have been written. As with Shakespeare's First Folio, the typesetting of individual compositors and the work of individual printers has been traced and analysed – including that of Susan Islip, one of the rare instances of a female printer in the 17th century."

Willing to help 'mend his Native Country, lamentably tattered, both in the upper-Leather and sole, with all the honest stitches he can take. And as willing never to bee paid for his work by Old English wonted to pay. It is his trade to patch all the year long, gratis. Therefore I pray Gentlemen keep your purses. London. Printed by J.D. & R.I. for Stephen Bowtell, at the signe of the Bible in Pope’s Head Alley. 1647. This is the first edition of Nathaniel Ward's remarkable and early book. Ward was a Puritan clergyman, author most notably of The Body of Liberties, which was the first code of laws written for the colonies. The Simple Cobler was written a few years later and was published in Englan under the pseudonym Thomas de la Guard. It is considered perhaps the best literary effort to come from the new colonies in the seventeenth century -- a notoriously short list. Measures 5.75 x 7.5. Bound with leather spine and corners, marbled papers over boards. A nineteenth century binding. Gold lettering on the spine in the English manner (bottom to top). There are notes and underlined passages and pointing hands drawn in the margins on a great many pages - done quite a long time ago, but I cannot tell if the marginalia is seventeenth century or eighteenth century or even nineteenth century. Endpapers are more recent. The book has undergone a very expert restoration including the following: new endpapers, repair to bottom corner of the t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Amsterdam 1647 - Per la prima volta edita nel'edizione tedesca nel "Nieuweb Atlas" del 1647, questa carta è tratta dal rarissimo atlante nautico del Barentsz edito postumo dal Janssonius con il titolo "Descriptio Maris Mediterranei per tabulas hidrographicas & geographicas", Amsterdam nel 1654. L'opera contine dieci carte nautice del Barentsz, per la prima volta incluse nel suo "Caertboeck vande Middelandtsche Zee", 1595; le carte sono stampate con la lastra originale ma sono completamnete rilavorate, con numerose varianti e con meno elementi decorativi nel mare. L'atlante è completato da alcune carte dello stesso Janssonius e da altre del Mercator, sempre modificate dal Jannsonius. Il Koeman cita solo 4 esemplari di questo atlante!!! Incisione in rame, coloritura coeva dei contorni, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Esemplare senza testo al verso. Rarissima edizione.

The atlas includes re-issues of Barentsz's 10 maps (first included in "Caertboeck vande Middelandtsche Zee", 1595) of the Mediterranean, with Jansson having completely changed the title and reworked the decorative embellishments, removing many of the great images originally added by Barentsz. Copperplate, original outline colour, in very good conditions. Rare edition, without text on verso. Dimensioni 460 350mm

BOODT ANSELMUS - LAET JOHANNES (DE).
Leida, ex officina Ioannis Maire, 1647. In - 8ø; 4 cc., 576 pp., 12 cc. (ultima bianca) e due carte ripiegate fuori testo; 32 cc., 210 pp., 3 cc. Legatura moderna in tutta pelle con cornice in oro ai piatti, fregi e titolo in oro al dorso. Molte figure di pietre e minerali incise nel testo. Rinforzo al margine bianco inferiore delle prime e delle ultime 4 carte, qualche fioritura non grave. Prima edizione del De Gemmis di Johannes de Laet unita all'edizione pi-- stimata, ampia e completa del Gemmarum et lapidum historia, il maggiore trattato di gemmologia del sec. XVII. La classificazione delle pietre risulta assai ampliata rispetto alle conoscenze rinascimentali e comprende gemme, pietre preziose trasparenti, geodi, cristalli, coralli, fossili. Inoltre vengono date ampie delucidazioni sul taglio, sulla fabbricazione dei gioielli, sul loro commercio ma pure sul valore talismanico e le propriet... magiche. Fondamentale il lavoro del de Laet che ci restituisce, con il testo greco di Teofrasto, la traduzione latina e l'ampio commento, l'unica opera mineralogica a noi pervenuta dall'antichit... classica. "This celebrated encyclopedic work, by far the most thorough and complete up to date, easily surpasses Bacci, Marbod, and Leonardus in quantity and quality of information; it is further distinguished by its intimate knowledge of the art of the lapidary and must therefore be regarded as the first treatise to offer more than the briefest of views of gem cutting. De Boodt assembled virtually all of the knowledge then extant, making the first edition an impressive work by any stand … [Click Below for Full Description]
