In a list of Sir Henry Sidney's horses in 1589 'Pied Markham' is enetered as having been sold to the French ambassador [and it, or a horse of the same name, may have been given to Markham by Sir Francis Walsingham], and Gervase sold an Arabian horse to James I for 500" (DNB). - Variously browned; occasional corner defects (no loss to text). From the library of Sir Robert Throckmorton, Bt. (1800-62), member of an eminent Anglo-Catholic noble family who sat in the House of Commons from 1831 to 1835 (his bookplate on front pastedown; a later bookplate is opposite on the flyleaf). - Wing M659.

DE LA RUE, Philippe
Pierre Mariette, Paris 1651 - This lovely map shows the location of the twelve tribes in the Holy Land. Unlike the Dutch maps of this time, this French map is simplified and elegant, with an emphasis on information rather than ornament. The result is a beautifully simple rendering exemplified by the empty Mediterranean Sea, in which original lines of printer's ink are visible. Pictograms indicate towns, mountains, forts, and forests. A large strapwork title cartouche features an angel at top. This map is from "La Terre sainte en six cartes géographiques" (The Holy Land in six maps), the first collection of maps laid out in a chronological sequence around a unifying theme. La Rue's goal was to trace the history of the world from the origins to the present. The six maps cover the land of Canaan and the Exodus, the Promised Land, Solomon's kingdom, the land at the time of Abraham, the Christian Patriarchate of Jerusalem, and modern Syria under Ottoman rule. The map is in excellent condition with no chips or tears. Slight foxing around the edges and includes a large watermark at right. Little is known about the French mapmaker Philippe de La Rue. He was associated with the pioneering French cartographer Nicolas Sanson, and specialized in Biblical themes. This map is a fine example of his work. Map. Copperplate engraving with beautiful original outline color. Image measures 16 x 21".

CLEMENT (Pierre).
A Langres, Chez Iean Baudrot, 1651. - Petit in-8. Titre gravé. 8ff. 367pp. (1). Veau brun, dos lisse orné (Reliure du XVIIIs.). Edition Originale très rare de cet ouvrage de l'écrivain de Langres Pierre Clément (Langres, c. 1590-1663). C'est un "livre curieux où se trouvent traitées les questions les plus singulières" (Brunet). En effet l'auteur s'est livré à des recherches sur des sujets philosophiques, historiques, religieux, souvent bizarres et curieux: "Quest-ce que l'Ange", "Quel était le Paradis Terrestre", "Comment était faicte l'Arche de Noé", "Comment était faicte l'Arche d'Alliance", "Comme estoit l'Autel des parfums", "Comment estoit fait le Chandelier d'Or du Tabernacle", "Quelles estoient les Sybilles", etc. Beau titre architectural gravé. Très rare impression de Langres (Haute-Marne). On a ajouté une planche gravée par H. Wierix (XVIs.). Quelques rousseurs, reliure frottée. Bon exemplaire néanmoins. Brunet, Suppl. 270. Manque au NUC.

Descartes here published his general system of epistemology and physics - including his Vortice-theory, the impossibility of a vacuum, etc. - with its Copernicanism mitigated by the idea that all motion is relative.In Descartes's letter prefaced to this French translation of the Principles, he writes that two, and only two, conditions determined whether the first principles proposed could be accepted as true: "First they must be so clear and evident that the mind of man cannot doubt their truth when it attentively applies itself to consider them"; and secondly, everything else must be deducible from them. But he went on to admit,"It is really only God alone who has perfect wisdom, that is to say, who has a complete knowledge of the truth of all things." Brunet II:611.
