- Antique print, titled: 'Tableau du Temple des Muses, Leandre.' - Rare finely engraved antique mythological print with caption in Latin, Hero and Leander is a Greek myth, relating the story of Hero, a priestess of Aphrodite who dwelt in a tower in Sestos, at the edge of the Hellespont, and Leander a young man from Abydos on the other side of the strait. Leander fell in love with Hero and would swim every night across the Hellespont to be with her. Hero would light a lamp at the top of her tower to guide his way. Also a cupid.

Wilkins John
A Rouen chez Jacques Cailloüe, dans la Cour du Palais Relié 1655 Très rare ouvrage, ici bien complet de son frontispice présentant Copernic, Kepler et Galilée. 'L'oeuvre s'adresse au grand public plutôt qu'aux experts sur le sujet, et son but est de populariser la vision de l'univers que l'on doit à Copernic, Kepler et Galilée. Le principal argument est que la Lune n'est pas un disque brillant mais plutôt un monde avec un paysage comme celui de la Terre. Bien sûr Wilkins n'est pas le 1er à avancer une telle théorie ; par exemple Galilée l'a indiqué de manière semblable. De manière peut-être plus surprenante, il pense que la Lune est une planète habitable et prédit qu'un jour le voyage vers elle sera possible. Ici aussi Wilkins n'est pas le 1er à faire cette suggestion mais elle est typique de la manière dont il pense, permettant à son esprit de vagabonder au milieu d'idées que d'autres auraient trouvé trop non conventionnelles pour les considérer.' In-12 relié plein parchemin (relié et lavé en 1861 d'après une note sur la garde). D'après une note figurant au 1er contre-plat, l'ouvrage a été « lavé et relié en 1861 ». Sa couverture est en plein parchemin, probablement de récupération : des restes d'écriture manuscrite sont encore parfaitement visibles. Cette technique, assez usuelle aux XIXe et début du XXe siècle produit parfois des résultats imparfaits. Ici cependant, la reliure a été soigneusement réalisée et ne souffre d'aucun défaut. Pièce de titre : frontispice, 8 pages non paginées contenant le titre et au lecteur, 269 pages pour le texte de la première partie, 3 pag … [Click Below for Full Description]

SAINT-GERMAIN (Charles de)
Paris, Cardin Besongne, 1655 [et] Gervais Clouster, 1650. , , , 2 ouvrages en 1 volume in-8 de (12), 93 et (3) pages, puis (46) et 352 pages, maroquin havane de l'époque, sur les plats dentelle intérieure et extérieure dorée le long d'un double filet, puis d'importants compartiments au centre desquels figurent des fers en forme de cœur, et au centre des motifs quadrilobés, dos à 5 nerfs muet orné de volutes dorées, coupes et coiffes striées, Exemplaire de présentation à Marin Cureau de la Chambre, médecin ordinaire de Louis XIV et "conseiller du Roy en ses conseils". L'oublié Charles de Saint-Germain, médecin diplômé de la faculté de Montpellier, venu à Paris à la fin des années 1640, et devenu médecin ordinaire du Roi "en l'année 1652, non seulement en considération de la doctrine, capacité et expérience en la science et pratique de la médecine" (voir Alexandre Lunel, "La Maison médicale du roi", p. 132), publia en 1655, un livre de thérapeutique qui rencontra un certain succès et qui fut réédité en 1668, "Le Médecin royal, ou le Parfait médecin charitable". En outre, Saint-Germain reste connu, dans l'histoire de la médecine parisienne, pour avoir, après Théophraste Renaudot, voulu défier la puissante Faculté de Médecine de Paris en instituant en 1668 un corps des médecins provinciaux, c'est-à-dire une "Chambre syndicale" "qui aurait été pourvue du privilège d'agréger les médecins étrangers désireux d'exercer leur art dans la capitale" (cf, Lunel, p. 132).

(Language of Flowers) (VULSON DE LA COLOMBIÈRE)
A La Haye: chez Adrian Vlacq, 1655; 1664. First published in 1647. Two works bound together. Among numerous topics for occult interest, entertainment and divination, Vulson de La Colombière offers here a 24- page language of flowers, a 17th century ancestor of the popular 19th century language of flowers genre. Preceding as it does the 18th century letters of Lady Mary Wortley Montague written from Turkey about this subject (often cited as a source for this interest) and mentioned by others, such as Aubry de La Mottraye, this work contributes to the discussion of the origins of such a "language" and to the role of flower symbolism in Western European culture. "Books aiming to elucidate a language specifically of flowers appeared in Paris not long after the end of the Napoleonic wars....Their background lay in the growth of the culture of flowers in France." (Goody, Jack THE CULTURE OF FLOWERS p. 234). The authors of these 19th century language of flowers books cited examples of flower signification found in antiquity and mythology, as well as in the sélam, but overlooked the few more recent works from modern Europe. "Au milieu du XVIIe siècle, un sieur Vulson de La Colombière, spécialisé dans la science de l'héraldique et sensible aux 'mystères' des couleurs, propose à son tour des "amusemens" de société praticables grâce à un dictionnaire de symboles de végétaux qu'il affirme être connus par tous." (Seguin, Jean-Pierre, "Les 'languges des fleurs' en France au XIX e siècle, et leurs archétypes aux XVIe et XVIIe siècles." in VIEUX PAPIER, p. 125.)

GONZALES DE MENDOZA, Juan.
Woodcut printer's devise on title, and decorative initials. 2 unn., 176 pp.; 222 pp., 14 unn. pp. index. 4to. Contemporary brown calf, t.e.g.. Old monastery library stamp on title. Antwerp, F. Frickaert, 1655. First Antwerp edition in Latin. Gonzalez de Mendoza (1545-1618) was sent by Philip II of Spain on an embassy to the Emperor of China. Combined with his own travel experiences notes are made by the missionaries Martin de Herrada and Hieronymus Marin on their voyages to China in 1575 and 1579. This is followed by an account of another missionary journey to China, derived mainly by Martin de Rada. The observations of the travellers refer not only to China, but to those countries through which they passed on their way, and since all expeditions to China at that time used Manila as a base, there is a lengthy account of the Philippines. Besides its interest as an Americanum with ref. to Peru on unn. p. 3, Mexico & Magellan on p. 5 in part 2, and Havana, Jamaica & Santo Domingo, the work contains also descriptions of Japan and other places. According to Pardo de Tavera, this was the first book printed in Europe to mention the then recently founded city of Manila. The work first appeared in Rome in 1585, printed in Spanish ("Historia de las cosas mas nobles...del gran reyno de la China"), and is the first printed history on China written by an European. But the first Madrid printing was not until 1586, and at this time an account was inserted of the Espejo expedition to New Mexico, and it is often erroneously assumed that all editions contain this mention, but as all the Ital … [Click Below for Full Description]

1655. Folio (300 x 190 mm). Title printed in red and black. With the same engravings of the first Dutch edition of 1665: coloured engraved title page with the Chinese Emperor seated on a throne, his left arm resting on a globe and a convicted criminal at his feet, full-page coloured engraved portrait of Nieuhof with engraved poem by Jan Vos below, large folding map of China, 34 double-page engraved plates and views of Batavia, Canton, Macao, Nankan, Nankin, Beijing, etc., and 110 half-page engraved views and plates of ceremonies, costumes, animals, fishes and plants in the text all in contemporary colour. Contemporary blindstamped pigskin over wooden boards. German edition. Very scarce coloured copy of the most important embassy to China in the 17th century. Nieuhof's celebrated account of the first trade mission undertaken by the Dutch East India Company (VOC) to the Imperial Court and the Emperor of China is one of the very few non-Jesuit sources of the period. First published in Dutch by Jac. van Meurs at Amsterdam in 1665, it soon became highly popular and was translated not only into German, but also into French, English and Latin. Today, it is regarded as the definitive account of the Dutch Embassy to Peking. - Johannes Nieuhof entered the service of the VOC after having travelled in the service of the Dutch West India Company through the West Indies and Brazil from 1640 to 1649. After two years of travels through the East Indies as a steward of the VOC, he was sent on this Dutch embassy to the Chinese Imperial Court, probably also because he was known to be an accomp … [Click Below for Full Description]

It also established for the first time since the Reformation the importance of monasteries and the scale of their territorial possessions.

1655. Incisioni altamente rappresentative dell'Augsburger Barock, in cui confluivano componenti diverse, dal Sud, dal Centro e dall'Est Europeo, in una felice mescolanza, che si espresse tra l'altro nelle vedute ottiche, nelle scene teatrali, nell'ornamentazione e nell'architettura. Queste scene teatrali, ispirate all'epopea della guerra di Troia, sono opera di Lodovico Burnacini, il grande scenografo e architetto italiano che, trasferitosi a Vienna verso la metà del XVII sec. insieme col padre Giovanni (16..-1655), influenzò profondamente il gusto dell'epoca colla sua fantasia nel campo della produzione di scene e costumi per opere e balli, e di macchine teatrali. Spettava allo scenografo la cura non soltanto della tecnica scenica, ma di tutto lo spettacolo nella sua completezza e il Burnacini fu uno degli ultimi grandi maestri esperti in tutti gli artifici dell'arte scenografica.
