LUCIEN DE SAMOSATE - PERROT D'ABLANCOURT (Nicolas).
A Paris, chez Augustin Courbé, 1655. 2 vols. in-4. Reliure plein veau brun de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné de caissons à fleurons dorés, titre doré, tranches mouchetées. (coins usés, petite accident à une coiffe sup. avec petit manque, très petites usures à un plat) Bon exemplaire. Seconde édition parue un an après l'originale. Rhéteur et satiriste anatolien de langue grecque, Lucien de Samosate (ca 120-ca 180) est considéré comme l’un des pères de l’esprit critique et de la libre pensée. Il s’attacha dans ses œuvres à démonter en particulier toutes sortes d’impostures magico-religieuses, au nombre desquelles il plaçait le christianisme. Son Histoire véritable, dans laquelle le personnage voyage sur la lune, influença Cyrano de Bergerac lorsqu’il écrivit son Histoire comique des États et Empires de la Lune, ainsi que Voltaire pour Micromégas. Pour d'Ablancourt, une traduction est une oeuvre originale. Il ne craint pas de supprimer, d'ajouter, de modifier. A ce propos, il écrit dans son Epistre : "Comme dans les beaux visages il y a toujours quelque chose qu'on voudroit qui n'y fust pas ; aussi dans les meilleurs Autheurs, il y a des endroits qu'il faut retoucher ou éclaircir, particulierement quand les choses ne sont faites que pour le plaisir (.). Je ne m'attache donc pas toujours aux paroles ni aux pensées de cet Autheur ; et demeurant dans son but, j'agence les choses à nostre air et à nostre façon. Cela n'est pas proprement de la Traduction ; mais cela vaut mieux que la Traduction". [Attributes: Hard Cover]

CAMOENS, Luis de.
London: Humphrey Moseley, 1655. London: Humphrey Moseley,, 1655. or Portugals Historicall Poem: written In the Portingall Language; and Now newly put into English by Richard Fanshaw Esq. Folio (304 x 194 mm). Contemporary English mottled calf, red morocco spine label, spine compartments fully gilt, decorative gilt roll to board edges. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Camoens with verses, 2 engraved portraits (of Prince Henry of Portugal, just shaved at fore margin, and of Vasco da Gama by Cross). Neat repair to spine ends, short split to frontispiece at plate mark at lower inner corner, occasional faint waterstain at foot, a few trivial blemishes, but a very good copy, the paper generally clean, strong, and well-margined. First edition in English of Os Lusíadas (1572), the epic poem describing Portugal's rise from obscurity to greatness. Camões based his Virgilian epic around Vasco da Gama's discovery of the sea route from Europe to India via the Cape of Good Hope in 1497-8, coloured by his own experiences during the 14 years he spent in the East (1553-67), including wintering on Hormuz Island, where, Burton argues in Camoens: His Life and his Lusiads, he was exposed to Persian literature. Boies Penrose calls The Luciad "one of the noblest epics" and "the national poem par excellence and the supreme epic of Portugal's conquests in the East" (Travel and Discovery in the Renaissance 1420-1620, New York, 1962, pp. 92 and 359). The English translator, Sir Richard Fanshawe, part of the grouping often called the cavalier poets, was an accomplished linguist, who spent a good d … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sanson, geografo del Re Luigi XIII è considerato il fondatore della cartografia francese, tra i primi ad applicare la trigonometria nelle misurazioni geodetiche; infatti Nicolas Sanson e i suoi collaboratori realizzarono nuove proiezioni geografiche e pubblicarono numerosi atlanti, mentre si affermava l'impiego dei sistemi di misura indiretta mediante i procedimenti trigonometrici applicati in Olanda da Snellius fin dal 1617. Il rilevamento geodetico-topografico basato sulla triangolazione prese rapidamente piede dando alle carte geografiche un aspetto sempre più aderente alla realtà che rappresentavano.Buon esemplare con piccoli fori al margine sinistro.

[NOTE: This copy is lacking the first leaf which includes an Imprimatur] Rarely do early printed Bible concordances appear out of original compilation. Usually the author is copying an earlier work and giving no credit to the original author/compiler who, in turn, probably copied their work. Starnes, Robert Estienne's Influence on Lexicography (Univ of Texas, 1963) provides a helpful technique for detecting the original sources of early modern Bible concordances. Sternes investigated entries for selected words observing the exact Biblical quotation chosen. Particularly, he noted the beginning and ending words of the verse citations, which is an editorial choice as rarely are whole verses used in concordances due to space limitations. The technique doesn't help with Wickens so much since he provides only chapter:verse citations, with no phrases. However, it's probably safe to assume that he used the most commonly cited Clement Cotton's 1631 A Complete Concordance of the whole Bible, and its revisions by Samuel Newman publishe … [Click Below for Full Description]

CASAUBON, MERIC (1599-1671). A Treatise Concerning Enthusiasme, As it is an Effect of Nature: but is mistaken by many for either Divine Inspiration, or Diabolical Possession. London: Printed by R.D. and are to be sold by Tho. Johnson, 1655. First Edition. Meric Casaubon was the son of the great classical scholar Isaac Casaubon. 'A Treatise Concerning Enthusiamse' is probably his most widely read book. A favorite word in English theological circles for some time (cf. Ronald Knox's Enthusiasm), "Enthusiasm" understood in this sense was the hyperactivity of the religious mind connected to some erratic external manifestation. Certain ceremonies and behavior of the Anabaptist, Quakers, Quiestists, Seekers, and Ranters were considered to fall under this definition. In Casaubon's work he attempts to distinguish between natural, physiological factors surrounding religious hyperactivity and preternatural causes, especially that of diabolical obsession or possession. Interesting contemporary ownership annotations on the blanks, title-page and verso of the title-page. One William Marriott has written out the titles of other works by Casaubon in Latin and English on the front blank and verso of the title; a Wm. Griffith, M.A., has written in the upper margin of the title-page that he bought this book in Cambridge in 1693 and notes its cost; and on the rear blank are annotations about Casaubon's classical references, etc. 12mo (16.5 x 11cm), 228pp. A couple pages a bit trimmed close at top with minimal letter loss to chapter heading.
