CHAPPUZEAU, Samuel;
Paris, Toussainct Quinet, 1650. 2 tomes en un volume fort in-12 de 7 ff., 510 pp., 1 f. bl., 2 ff. de privilège - 4ff., 366pp., 2 ff. de privilège, 1 f. bl., maroquin rouge, triple filet doré d'encadrement sur les plats, armes au centre, dos à nerfs orné de lions couronnés et motifs losangés dans des caissons ornés de filets et feuillage dorés, coupes et bordures décorées, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque). Édition originale ornée d'un frontispice gravé. C'est surtout en tant qu'homme de théâtre et influence très probable de Molière -qu'il a côtoyé et qui ne pouvait que connaitre ses pièces L'Académie des femmes et Le Riche mécontent ou le Noble imaginaire, antérieures aux Femmes Savantes et au Bourgeois gentilhomme- qu'on se souvient de Samuel Chappuzeau. Le présent roman, Ladice, publié anonymement, n'en fut pas moins remarqué en son temps, et embarrassa assez son auteur pour qu'il jugeât utile d'attendre huit ans avant d'en revendiquer la paternité, dans l'avis au lecteur de sa pièce Armetzar. Très bel exemplaire aux armes de Jeanne-Baptiste d'Albert de Luynes, comtesse de Verrue (1670-1736), surnommée la Dame de volupté. Cette condition est d'autant plus désirable que Quentin-Bauchart (Les Femmes bibliophiles de France, I, p. 417) relève que les beaux exemplaires se remarquent d'autant plus que "presque tous ont malheureusement souffert de l'humidité et nous n'en connaissons qu'un très petit nombre qui soient arrivés jusqu'à nous dans une état de conservation à peu près irréprochable". Aussi admirablement douée qu'elle était née belle - Victor-Amédée de Savoie, nous … [Click Below for Full Description]

Alexander Giraffi | James Howell (Translator)
London: Printed for R. Lowndes, 1650. Early Printing. Full Leather. Fair binding. 24mo. A contemporary account of the revolutions of Naples, first organized by the fisherman Masaniello. Giraffi's tale damns the agitator as a tyrant and villain of the most perfidious sort; being a biased retelling written by an Italian nobleman with obvious conflicts of interest, this work remained the authoritative account for some time, as most readers and writers reveled in the fantastic tale. This being the first part of Lord Alessandro Giraffi's eventually two part history of Masaniello. One of three first printings, priority unknown, all published in 1650. Hand colored frontispiece of Masaniello, with shirt brightly colored in sky-blue gouache. Title in black and red. Collates complete against the ESTC. Hinges cracked, but binding holding. Wear to the leather binding, especially to the spine, and some worming to the boards. (ESTC R21699). Fair binding.

Rostgaard, Frederik (1671-1745) (?) Reinhardt, Andreas I (c.1676-1742) (?)
"Beautiful portrait of William III (1650-1702) on horse, with a gun in his hand, realized as a calligraphic exercise. Very peculiar and interesting impression. Lettered on the bottom, at center: ""C"". Small holes along the drawn lines were made in order to copy the composition on another sheet, possibly to do some calligraphic exercises. Notably, in 1709 Rostgaard published ""Lex regia : det er den souveraine konge-lov ..."" in Sweden. The edition opens with a beautiful portrait of king Frederik III on horseback the head of which was realized after the death mask of the regent, whereas the lower part was brought by as a unique calligraphic exercise."."Etching on paper, trimmed close to plate mark; total: 413 x 328 mm; some tears along the margins, smudges and dirt on the surface, since black chalk powder was scattered in order to make the copy. Some rust stains. The impression was for a long time folded, therefore creases are quite visible. Watermark ""Pro Patria"", with HT countermark. Rare. "

Some editions were confiscated because of the frank (for those times) discussion of virginity and its method of loss. Pineau was a Parisian physician and surgeon to the king. His work, an unusual treatise on the anatomical signs of virginity, also contains tracts on embryology, gynecology and cardiology. Bonacciuoli, a physician in Ferrara, first published this gynecological work, dedicated to Lucrezia Borgia, early in the sixteenth century. Platter was an anatomist, the earliest supporter of Vesalius north of the alps, and professor of medicine at Basel. In the present work Platter is chiefly concerned with two questions of developmental anatomy regarding the origin of the arteries, veins, and nerves from the brain and the relationship of the veins to the heart and liver.

Die Qualität des Kolorits ist in etwa vergleichbar mit dem legendären Kolorit des van Santen aus dem Atlas van der Hem. Der Atlas wurde in den 50er Jahren des 20. Jahrhunderts aufgelöst und der Band der österreichischen (und tschechischen) Ansichten kam geschlossen in den Besitz des ehemaligen Artaria-Mitarbeiters Hans Philipp Gutacker, seine Erben verkauften sie ebenfalls geschlossen an ein Antiquariat im Rheinland. Alle Blätter sind in dieser Art Unikate. Schlagworte: Graphik, Stadtansicht, Tschechien, Vedute, Anna Beek, Unikat.

MILTON (John).
typis Du Gardianis, 1650. Petit in-12 vélin de l'époque. (10 ff)-244 pp. Edition originale. C'est, avec le Paradis perdu, l'oeuvre la plus célèbre de Milton. Il s’agit d’une réponse à l'ouvrage de Saumaise, qui prenait la défense du roi Charles 1 er, assassiné par Cromwell en 1649. Milton attaque Saumaise avec violence, démontre que le régicide est justifié par le droit de nature selon la sagesse antique et moderne. Dans le cas de Charles 1 er, il était de plus question d'une nécessité publique. Il dénonce et blâme enfin l'immixtion des étrangers dans les affaires intérieures de l'Etat. L'ouvrage fit grand bruit, et connut de nombreuses rééditions, c'est l'une des pierres de marque de la littérature historique anglaise. Lowndes, p.1567. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Pergamino a la romana de época, lomo con nervios, rotulación de época, hilos y plancha gofrada en planos. Primera edición de una de las obras más asombrosas del genio que fue Athanasius Kircher, siempre caracterizado por un deseo innato por descubrir, por explicar el mundo, por descifrar la naturaleza matemática de las cosas y explicarlo todo a través de modelos reproducibles a pesar de carecer de las herramientas y metodologías que la ciencia moderna ofrece. Musurgia Universalis es un magnífico tratado musical, en el que no solo propone planos para construir un órgano de agua, anotar las notas musicales del canto de los pájaros, un oído mecánico gigante conectado a una estatua parlante para asustar. sino que estudia la composición del oído humano, comparado con el de distintos animales. Kircher llegó a la conclusión que el sonido no existía por si mismo, sino que era la resonancia –aunque él no la llamó por ese nombre–dentro del oído la que formaba el sonido. Ejemplar muy limpio y con bella encuadernación de época, algo abierta por el cajo superior. Injerto marginal en portada, sin afectar al texto. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

One of about twenty lay confraternities founded in Toulouse in the 17th century, the Confraternity of Our Lady of Suffrage, founded in 1647 by parishioners of the church of Notre-Dame-du-Taur, encouraged its members to practice works of charity and poor relief, although its main goal was the depopulation of purgatory (and thereby salvation of their own souls). "A product of the Counter-Reformation, this brotherhood bore every sign of the baroque piety of post-Tridentine Catholicism. Like the Confraternity of Mercy [another Toulouse confraternity], it encouraged its confrères to visit the city's prisoners and to pray for their salvation; and each year during Holy Week it rescued three incarcerated debtors.

Roxas [Rojas], Alonso de.
[Mexico?, Puebla?, Madrid?]: No publisher/printer, [1650]. Small 4to (21 cm; 8.25"). 278 pp. The legendary feud between Bishop Juan de Palafox y Mendoza and the Society of Jesus was acrimonious, lengthy, and rich in legal filings. The main point of contention between the opposing parties was the failure of the Society to submit to the authority of the bishops and archbishop of Mexico, and this had a subchapter concerning the Jesuits' refusal to tithe to the ecclesiastical authorities.    The present filing by the Society via its lawyer is a reply to Father Palafox's Al excelentissimo señor Don Garcia de Avellaneda i Haro conde de Castrillo . . . presidente en el Real y supremo [Consejo] de las Indias; el dean i cabildo de la Santa Iglesia de la Puebla de los Angeles, published 1646? (see: Medina, BHA, 6946). => Sabin characterizes the Society's reply as "rabid."    There are two editions of this work: The other has only 131 leaves and contains a typographical error on the title-page ("lirro" for "libro"). In this edition the "Apendiz al Memorial. Aduertencias a quien lo huuiere leido," pp. 242–78, is by Juan Antonio Jarque. The place of printing has long been a matter of conjecture because of the paucity of studies of typography and typographic norms in Mexico and Puebla in the 17th century. We admit to no scholarship on the topic of typefaces but do have extensive experience with the paper used in Mexico and Puebla in the 1650s and the watermark in this edition is that of paper widely used there.    Provenance: Bookseller's label of the Libreria de San Martin in Mad … [Click Below for Full Description]

The manuscript is numbered 1 to 117, one leaf 48 is not present and 111 is numbered twice, there is one extra watercolour on the verso of leaf 64.Seven leaves have representations of tulips (fol. 40-44, 86, 94), at least six others show American plants, including Ficus indica major and Yucca gloriosa, 8 leaves show beautiful carnations, 3 crocusses, plate 21 Corona Imperialis/ Käyserkron ( Fritillaria imperialis) is particularly attractive. The nomenclature of the plants is mostly in Latin and occasionally in German. Many of the plants depicted in the present florilegium also figure in the famous Hans Simon Holtzbecker florilegium for the major Barthold Moller of Hamburg, albeit in a very different way. Both florilegia were painted at the same period. A list of the plants depicted in this interesting manuscript can be sent on request. Occasional offsetting from some of the drawings onto the next page.The paper is watermarked 'Z' or 'Zittaw' (thus obviously Zittau) suggesting the origin of the manuscript in the region of Saxony.

First edition. Text in Latin. Very scarce; a copy of this edition last came to auction in 1988. A 1651 second issue is far more common. This is a fascinating work on snakes, dealing not only with their anatomy, venom, medicinal properties and the treatment of bites but also with the folklore surrounding serpents. The plates depict not only snake anatomy but also mythical representations of serpents. This reflects the intellectual approach of the author: "[his] works presented a blend of empirical scientific observations and spiritual beliefs and speculations. He believed, for example, that studying anatomy would allow one to understand not just the natural world, but also the divine will and workings of the world's creator. (His mysticism also caught the eye of the Inquisition, who brought him in for questioning, although he was eventually acquitted)" (Timothy D. Murray, Alexander C.
