        Exercitationes paradoxicae adversus aristoteleos. In quibus praecipua totius Peripateticae doctrinae fundamenta excutiuntur : Opiniones vero aut Novae, aut ex vetustiorubus Obsoletae stabiliuntur (...).

      Amsterdam, Apud Ludovicum Elzevirium [Amsterdam, Louis Elzevier], 1649.. In-12, plein velin de l'epoque, (32), 208 p., titre noir et rouge. Seconde edition du premier ouvrage de Gassendi (l'originale de 1624 n'est connue qu'a quelques exemplaires), publiee par Louis Elzevier a Amsterdam. Dans ce "chef-d'oeuvre de polemique impitoyable" (Gusdorf), le jeune philosophe lance une attaque frontale contre l'aristotelisme de son temps, contre ses disciples scolastiques et defend l'epicurisme auquel il veut rendre justice. "Cet ouvrage s'insere dans une tradition humaniste et renaissante d'anti-aristotelisme. Gassendi remet en cause les autorites, l'interpretation a priori et la tradition immediate. Il leur substitue les preuves experimentales. Son opposition a Aristote et a son dogmatisme doit aussi etre mise en perspective avec son combat contre les courants esoteriques et theosophiques, et contre le dogmatisme occultiste" (Fonds Gassendi, Mediatheque des Trois Vallees en ligne). L'ouvrage ne sera plus reimprime du vivant de l'auteur. (Cf. Jammes, 'Libertins erudits', n° 160. Pintard, n°757. Willems, 1085). Bel exemplaire, tres frais, tres bien relie a l'epoque..

        Les Passions de l'ame.

      Amsterdam, Louys Elzevier, 1649.. In-12, maroquin rouge janseniste, dos a 5 faux nerfs, titre dore, double filets dore sur les coupes, large dentelle interieure, tranches dorees sur marbrure (rel. de Trautz Bauzonnet), (48), 286 p., (1) f. blanc, fleuron de titre a la Minerve. Edition originale dans sa rare impression d'Amsterdam que l'on doit a Louis Elzevier, publiee simultanement a l'edition parisienne chez Le Gras. Louis Elzevier adopta pour marque une Minerve a cote d'un olivier, a la devise "Ne extra oleas". "Cette edition originale a ete imprimee par Louis Elzevier avec un libraire parisien Henry Le Gras, de qui une partie des exemplaires portent l'adresse. Ceux au nom de Louys Elzevier sont fort rares" (Berghman, Elzevier, n°367). Paru en novembre 1649, redige directement en francais comme le Discours de la methode, Les Passions de l'ame est le dernier grand ouvrage de Descartes et le dernier publie de son vivant. "Point d'aboutissement de son oeuvre, il apparait comme un effort pour resoudre les apories du dualisme entre le corps et l'esprit, dualisme que Descartes impose comme probleme a toute la philosophie ulterieure" (Francois Tremolieres). (Guibert p. 150.Tchemerzine-Scheler, II, p. 792. Willems, 1083). Seulement 2 exemplaires de cette edition "Louys Elzevier" dans les bibliotheques francaises (CCFr). Tres bel exemplaire, assez grand de marges (161 x 100 mm) dans une fine reliure janseniste de maroquin rouge par Trautz-Bauzonnet..

Edition originale publiee chez Jean Blaeu. Ouvrage de combat d'origine protestante, qui traite des "peines et satisfactions" et qui refute le dogme catholique du purgatoire.

Bergier, 'Dict. de theologie', V, 405). Pasteur et theologien protestant originaire de Chatellerault Jean Daille (1594-1670) fit ses etudes a Poitiers et Saumur. Il etait l'ami et le biographe de Duplessis-Mornay et devint precepteur de ses petits-enfants. Lie a Guy Patin et a Conrart, il etait admire tant pour les qualites de style que pour l'erudition de ses travaux. L'ouvrage fut mis a l'index. (Bujanda, 'Index', p. 263). (Desgraves, 'Ouvrages de controverse entre catholiques et protestants', n° 4797. Haag, V, 32). Provenance: Paul Godet des Marais (1648-1709), confesseur puis superieur de la maison royale de Saint-Cyr, directeur de conscience de Madame de Maintenon. Il fut egalement eveque de Chartres, avec ses armes dorees sur les plats. (Guigard, I, p. 239). Surprenante provenance pour cet ouvrage protestant mis a l'index..

Pgtbd (fleckig u. leicht verzog.), vereinz. fingerfl., am Anf. u. Ende eselsohrig, sonst wohlerh. - Der Autor war einer der "überragenden Meister der deutschen Sprache im 16. Jh." (Kaczer. p 11) u. zur "protest. Linken" d. Reformationsz. zählend, war immer auf der Flucht. Mit Frecht (1494-1556) u. Bucer (1491-1551) war er auf der Heidelb. Uni im Dominikaner-Colleg Bethlehem zusammen. Im Augsb. Bistum tritt er als 'geweihter Priester' auf, dann bekennt er sich zu Luther u. ist 1527 'evgl. Frühmessner' in Nürnberg u. in Ulm betreibt er seine Buchdruckerei; auch hier fällt er in Ungnade u. flieht nach Basel - samt Frau u. 4 Kindern u. dort verliert sich 1542 von allen die Spur.

Luther wettert in seinen Tischgesprächen über Franck u. die Ulmer, daß sie die 'bösen, vergifteteten Buben halten'. Heute ist d. Zeit reifer f. ihn. Ab 1531 erschien d. 'Chronica, Zeitbuch u. Geschichtsbibel' hintereinander in vielen Aufl. (Kaczer. A 38-A 73) u. wurde ein vielgelesenes Volksbuch. Zu den 3 Teilen d. Chronik wurde 1534 als 4. Teil das 'Weltbuch' veröffentl. (Kaczer. A 74-A 84). Es enthält eine geograph.-polit.-histor. Beschreibung der 4 Erdteile. Das 4. Buch beschreibt - außergewöhnl. ausführlich - Amerika (pp 577-662). Die ersten nl. Übers. v.

Le document est date de Paris, le 30 avril 1648 soit quelques jours apres les evenements qu'il relate et signe "L. le C.". Le permis d'imprimer est du 10 juin. La brochure porte en titre de depart: "L'Amant obstine dans ses recherches et la Fille constante en ses refus". Le sieur de Charmoy qui voulait epouser une demoiselle de Sainte-Croix, fut econduit par celle-ci malgre la promesse du pere. Sur la demande de Charmoy, un proces fut renvoye au Parlement de Paris, ou, par arret, est ordonne que la fille sera mise au couvent des Filles-Dieu pour declarer sa volonte. Charmoy, enrage, se resolut d'enlever la fille. "Accompagne de cinq hommes, il la tirent de sa chambre de force quoiqu'elle fut en chemise, lui font donner de la tete contre le plancher, cent coups de baton, d'eperons et des coups sur les bras pour lui faire quitter prise, la trainent dans le jardin nue comme la main ( ), la tirent par les cheveux mais n'en peuvent venir a bout (...). On sonne le tocsin, la population accourt et l'enlevement echoue" (cf. O. Lefevre D'Ormesson, 'Journal', 1860, I, 470 sq.). Un jugement tres severe fut rendu par le Parlement contre les auteurs du rapt : amende honorable devant la porte du couvent des Filles-Dieu, supplice de la roue, leurs biens confisques et leurs maisons rasees. Quant a Mademoiselle de Sainte-Croix, elle epousa, en 1654, un pretendant choisi. Dulaure relate d'affaire avec precision dans son 'Histoire de Paris', ed. de 1823, II, 401. Court de marge inferieure sans perte de texte. Moreau ('Mazarinades', II, n°1868) indique que "le seul exemplaire que j'ai vu est incomplet"..

ESTC R39418 , Authorship of the Eikon Basilike was originally attributed to Charles I, but according to Madan (pp. 125-33) it was written by John Gauden who probably included some authentic writings of the king. The book went through numerous editions in the years immediately following the death of Charles I, thirty-five in 1649 alone and copies are found with an variety of additional texts. This copy has a section of Henderson's 'Reliquiae' (Papers which Passed at Newcastle...) but doesn't have the "Explanation of the embleme" by William Dugard. This was printed separately and is not part of any of the signatures and where present is found before the frontis. The book was a masterstoke of Royalist propaganda, portraying Charles as a martyr, a powerful image in a world where religious persecution was not a distant memory. Such was the book's success in this portrayal of Charles that Parliament commissioned John Milton to write a riposte to it, which he published under the title Eikonoklastes ("The Icon-Breaker") in 1649. MIlton's work failed to significantly alter popular ideas of Charles as a martyr. , Small 8vo 6.5" tall, [4] 247 [5] 58 [18] pp .

THE ESSEX WATCHMEN'S WATCHWORD to the inhabitants of the said county respectively, dwelling under their several charges, by way of Apologetical Account, of the true Grounds of their first Engagement with them in the Cause of God, King and Parliament, for their Vindication from unjust Aspersions. Also by way of faithful Premonition of the dangerous evil latent in a printed Paper, entituled, The Agreement of the People, intended to be Tendred to them for Subscription. London: Printed for Ralph Smith, at the sign of the Bible near the Royal Exchange, 1649. First edition. The last two pages are a printed list of 63 ministers, beginning with Daniel Rogers, who endorsed this publication. The imprimatur (Ja. Cranford, 15 February 1648) is printed at the bottom of the last page. Small quarto. A-B4 18.2 x 14 cm.

        Novum ac Magnum Theatrum Urbium Belgicae Foederate . [With:] Novum ac Magnum Theatrum Urbium Belgicae Regiae

      - Amsterdam: Blaeu, [1649]. Folio. (20 5/8 x 13 3/8 inches). Latin text. On paper guards throughout. Engraved title page to each volume, with titles on printed overslips, 223 engraved maps. Eighteenth century red morocco, elaborately bordered in gilt, expert restoration at edges and joints, spine with raised bands in eight compartments, black morocco lettering piece in the second, the others with an overall repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. The third edition in Latin of Blaeu's famous town books of the Netherlands, here bound in 18th-century English red morocco: a magnificent depiction of the Dutch Golden Age. "Of all the Blaeu atlases, the townbooks of the Netherlands are held in the highest esteem in the Netherlands. This is partly due to the fact that their composition is linked up with the struggle for independence from Spain of the Dutch Republic in the 17th century" (Koeman). This copy with slightly variant titles to Koeman Bl 66 and Bl67, printed on mounted overslips and without page numbers (otherwise collating as per Koeman). "In his third edition we find the same views and plans arranged in nearly the same order as in the second edition, but a smaller number of plates [i.e. mapsheets], as several half sheets of the first edition have been combined to make whole sheets . Several plans have been amended, some of them to a considerable extent . The text has been reset . This third edition is extended with extracts from the privileges granted by Philip II and Louis XIV" (Koeman). In the seventeenth century, the Dutch hegemony in ship building and navigation engendered their dominance in mapmaking. At the lead of this field was the Blaeu family. Willem Janszoon Blaeu first studied mathematics and navigation under the famous astronomer Tycho Brahe in 1594, opening his own instrument and globe making shop in Amsterdam in 1599. Shortly thereafter, Willem Blaeu would open a printing house, specializing in works on navigation. The Blaeu family's first world atlas, modestly titled the Atlantis Appendix as it was considered a continuation of the atlases by Ortelius, Mercator and Hondius, was first published in 1630 by Willem Blaeu with his son Joan Blaeu, the official cartographers of the Dutch East India Company. The acclaim that Blaeu's atlases have always received is based primarily upon the extremely high production standards found within. The quality of the engraving and the paper are of the highest order, placing them in the first rank among seventeenth century illustrated books. Blaeu's maps and town plans are embellished in the Baroque style, and many rank among the most beautiful ever made. This set, beautifully bound in 18th century red morocco, is from the noted libraries of Henry B. H. Beaufoy (a member of parliament and a fellow of the Royal Society noted for his library which included the first four folios of Shakespeare) and the Viscount Leverhulme (a noted industrialist, art collector and founder of the Lady Lever Art Gallery).

Contemporary calf rebacked and recornered, four raised bands on spine and spine label bearing gilt titles, boards with gilt oval containing the arms of Petrus de Villars Archbishop of Vienna (there were 3 Archbishop Villars of Vienna, the last died in 1663), some surface wear to boards, small ink stamp of a lion with the initial C under it on ffep, internally clean and bright, pagination ([8], 46, [2], 40, 56, 55, [1], 24, [2], 43-94, [10], 148, 24, 64.pp) matches that given by the ESTC. , This work contains 16 tracts originally published between 1641 and 1649 and here collected together and translated into Latin, presumably for a European readership. These tracts are by a number of different authors including John Gauden, William Prynne, William Sedgwick and John Cook (bap. 1608, d.1660), with each tract having a seperate title page dated 1648 or 1649. John Cook's name appears on just one tract but also on the main title page and so one assumes he was the translator. John Cook was a judge who acted as Solicitor-General at the trial of King Charles I, a trial which Cook called "the most comprehensive, impartial, and glorious piece of justice that ever was acted" and claimed that he "went as cheerfully about it, as to a Wedding". His involvement in the trial would see him executed for treason in 1660. , Small 4to .
