        Jesuiten-S.Maria aquila mystica, Sandaeus M., 1645

      Sandaeus Maximilian, 1578-1656 - S. Maria, aquila mystica, R. P. Maximiliani Sandaei apud J. Munich, 1645 - 489 Seiten Titel S. Maria, aquila mystica, R. P. Maximiliani Sandaei Autor Maximilianus Sandaeus (S.J., Le P.) Verlag apud J. Munich, 1645 40 Bl., 489 Seiten, Index, orig. Pergament, kl. 8°, 12x8 cm., gering gebräunt, wenige Seiten mit kleineren Rissen, ohne Textverlust. SANDAEUS (van der Sandt, Vandersant, van den Sanden) Maximilianus, SJ, Verfasser polem., spirit. u. theol. Schriften, * 17. (oder 18.) 4. 1578 in Amsterdam, † 21.6. 1656 in Köln. - S. begann seine phiolsoph. Studien zunächst in Groningen, vollendete sie dann aber aufgrund der schwierigen Situation der Katholiken in Holland 1597 in Köln am Collegium Tricoronatum mit dem Magister artium. Noch im selben Jahr ging S. nach Italien und trat am 21.11. 1597 in Rom in die Gesellschaft Jesu als Novize ein. S. absolvierte seine theol. Studien am Collegium Romanum. Von 1605-22 lehrte er als Prof. der Phil. u. Theol. in Würzburg, danach, 1622-27, als Prof. für Exegese in Mainz. 1627 wurde S. Oberer des bischöfl. Seminars in Würzburg. Ab 1631 lebte er in Köln und war dort als Studienpräfekt und Direktor der marianischen Kongregation tätig. 1645/46 nahm S. als Delegierter seiner Provinz an der 8. Generalkongregation der Jesuiten in Rom teil. Er starb am 21.6. 1656 in Köln. - S. gilt als erstaunlich belesener und stark allegorisierender Schriftsteller. Seine polem. Schriften stammen aus den Jahren 1616-21, in denen er sich mit den Lehren der Reformierten in seinem Heimatland Holland auseinandersetzte. Seine über 70 Werke behandeln vor allem Themen der Spiritualität und Frömmigkeit (Maria, Passion Christi) sowie eine mystische Theologie. In seiner »Theologia mystica« beschrieb S. die verschiedenen Arten der Kontemplation und die unterschiedlichen Stufen bzw. Phänomene der Mystik. In der »Pro theologia mystica clavis« stellte S. ein Wörterbuch der Begriffe der Mystik mit ihren jeweiligen Synonymen zusammen, wobei er eine Fülle von Zitaten aus der Literatur der Mystik verwendete (Ps.-Dionysios, Origenes, Bonaventura, Theologia deutsch, Tauler, Ruusbroec, Johannes vom Kreuz, Herp, Ludovicus Blosius, Ignatius von Loyola, etc.). Die vielfältigen mystischen Erfahrungen versuchte S. mittels scholastischer Kategorien und Begriffe zu erfassen, systematisieren und verteidigen (vgl. seine Verteidigung Taulers gegen die Angriffe durch Johannes Eck). Die »Pro theologia mystica clavis« wurde für die Kenntnis der span. Mystik des 16. Jh.s in Europa äußerst bedeutsam. Erwähnenswert ist, daß Johann Scheffler (Angelus Silesius) sie als Quelle benutzt hat. - Durch seine »Theologia mystica«, insbesondere die »Pro theologia mystica clavis« nimmt S. einen wichtigen Platz in der Geschichte der Spiritualität ein.

      Printed by T.R. for H. Twyford & G. Bedell. Printed by T.R. for H. Twyford & G. Bedell. 1656 [16], 250, [10]pp table, with preliminary & final blanks; 8vo.

Bookplate of Ethel Mary Portal.ESTC R208904; Wing F947. The Banqueting House is the only remaining complete building of Whitehall Palace, the monarch's principal residence from 1530 until 1698 when it was destroyed by fire. Designed by Inigo Jones, its primary function was to host occasions of state, masques and plays, and it was the most prestigious reception room in the Palace. John Finet, as master of ceremonies to both King James and King Charles, records many of these events, including visits by French, Swedish and Venetian ambassadors and the ratification of the marriage of King Charles I to Henrietta Maria in 1625. It is written with the informality of an insider's knowledge, part gossip, part a record of the elaborate etiquette that surrounded such state events.

        POLITICALL REFLECTIONS Upon The GOVERNMENT Of The TURKS.  Nicolas Machiavel: The King of Sweden';s Descent into Germany: The Conspiracy of Piso and Vindex against Nero: The Greatnesse and Corruption of the Court of Rome: The Election of Pope Leo the XI: The Defection from the Church of Rome: Martin Luther

      London: Printed by J[ohn]. G[rismond]. for Thomas Robinson in Oxford, 1656. 1st edition (Wing O-518; cf Madan 2305 for a different edition). Period full brown calf boards with modern respining to style. Gilt lettered maroon leather title label in second spine compartm. Bit of splay to boards. Period po sums to eps. A VG copy.. [8], 112, 111 - 194 pp. Around 1650, Osborne left public service & moved to Oxford, where, for the "last eight years of his life he published a series of historical, political, and moral works, which were read widely during the Restoration and early 18th C. His thinking shows the influence of Hobbes, whose 'great acquaintance' he was (Brief Lives, 1.370)." Osborne is best known for his Advice to a Son, which made him somewhat a celebrity, and helped occasion Pepys' "fondly calling the author 'my father Osborne' and recording in his Diary that Sir William Petty listed the Advice with Browne's Religio Medici and Butler's Hudibras as the works 'most esteemed and generally cried up for wit in the world' (Pepys, Diary, 19 Oct 1661; 27 Jan 1664)." [ODNB]. Here in this work, Osborne reflects on the greatness of the Ottoman Empire, though Madan notes Osborne was taken to task for his section on Machiavel, for it greatly resembled a 1642 pamphlet entitled "The Atheistical Politician, or a Briefe Discourse concerning Ni. Machiavell". Politicall Reflections a somewhat scarce title in the trade, appearing at auction only a couple times a decade, where, we note on ABPC, in 2008, a 2nd edition fetched close to $3000.

Car is first of all a style, not only in his letters (love letters), and his poetry but also in his prose, see for example the delicious Metamorphoses. His works were the image of man, gallant, teaching fine language and good manners to those familiar with the Rambouillet hotel. His fame was great during his century and remains an emblem for the seventeenth century. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Cinquième édition des Œuvres de Voiture, dont l'originale est parue en 1648 ; et édition originale des Nouvelles œuvres de Voiture. Un frontispice de Mellan pour le premier volume, un bandeau et une lettrine dans l'épître et un beau portrait de l'auteur par Champaigne gravé par Nanteuil. Reliure en pleine basane brune d'époque. Dos à nerfs richement orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Un manque en coiffe. Accroc avec manque au mors supérieur en queue. Frottements.Bon exemplaire. Voiture (1597-1648) fut toute sa vie un galant et un courtisan, brillant dans les salons et jouant aux jeux. Son talent épistolaire lui valut de mettre longtemps en France la prose à la mode, et ses poésies excellent dans le ton maniériste et précieux, même si il sait tour à tour être trivial quand il le faut. C'est un personnage incontournable de la scène littéraire du début du XVIIe, un vrai personnage de Molière. Voiture, c'est tout d'abord un style, non seulement dans ses lettres (Lettres amoureuses) et ses poésies mais également dans sa prose, voir pour exemple les délicieuses Métamorphoses. Ses œuvres furent à l'image de l'homme, galant, enseignant le beau langage et les belles manières aux habitués de l'hôtel de Rambouillet. Sa renommée fut très grande durant son siècle et il demeure un emblème pour le XVIIème siècle.

        The Art of Simpling. An Introduction to the Knowledge and Gathering of Plants. Wherein the definitions, divisions, places, descriptions, differences, names, vertues, times of flourishing and gathering, uses, temperatures, signatures and appropriations of plants, are methodically laid down. Whereunto is added, a discovery of the lesser world

      London: Printed by J. G. Nath. Brook, 1656. First edition, first issue, 2 parts in one, 12mo, [24], 175, [1]pp., signatures: A⁸(A1+a4) B-H¹² I⁴ (four leaves (a4), consisting of a dedication to Ellis Ashmole and a list of errata, inserted between A1 and A2), minor professional repairs to margins of several leaves, some light staining but otherwise text quite clean, new marbled endpapers, recent full calf, blind-stamp tool to both covers, red morocco title label. William Coles (1626-62), his enthusiasm for botany developed while he was at Oxford; he afterwards resided at Putney, Surrey, where he was a friend of Dr William How, founder of the Westminster botanic garden, and according to Wood (Athenae oxoienses), "he became the most famous simpler or herbalist of his time." As the Hunt catalogue notes, publication of this book was personally disastrous for Coles. Parts of the work formed a sustained attack on Nicholas Culpeper's astrological tendencies. However, in his haste to find a patron Coles had dedicated the book to Elias Ashmole, who unbeknownst to Coles was himself an astrologist. "This necessitated the removal of the most offending leaves in the dedication and the text, and Coles fairly leaned over backward in his attempt to win the favour Ashmole. However, the damage had been done, the new dedication still contained material that might easily have distressed Ashmole, and it seems clear that he must have refused permission for the use of his name." The present copy is the rare first issue, with the offending text and dedication present. Provenance: Manuscript ownership signature to verso of front-free endpaper "Thomas Thomas his Book Anno Domini 1711" & 1727; MS. recipe for "to make cordall [sic] water in May" to recto of front-free endpaper. Hunt 266; Wing W5089; Henrey, pp. 88-89.

      Paris: Pierre Mariette, 1656. - A very nice, clean example of this important and rare map, which "influenced the cartography of Canada for the next fifty years. The eastern Great Lakes region is remarkably accurate, with the western ends of the lakes undefined for lack of reliable information. The possibility of a northwest passage at the bottom of Button's Bay was also to influence a considerable number of cartographers for the rest of the century."(Goss. Mapping of North America, map 33). Minor flaws include scattered creasing, light dampstain at bottom right corner, splitting a few inches along bottom of center fold, a small mild stain at bottom from a sticker that had been on reverse, a small tear near left edge and a few other imperfections. But otherwise bright with good outline color. Not laid down, and does not appear to have been cleaned or otherwise restored. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Aminta Favola Boscareccia.

      In Leida. Presso Giovanni Elsevier 1656 - 12mo, 128 x 73 mms., pp. [xxii], 84, contemporary or slightly later embroidered binding, with crowns in silver threads against a dark brown background, all edges gilt, with the late 17th or early 18th century bookplate of Charles-Louis Texier, comte d'Hautefeuille or possibly his father, Jacques Etienne Louis Texier, comte d'Hautefeuille on the front paste-down end-paper; no free end-papers, slight worming of lower front cover of binding,remnants of ties, but in general in very good shape for an embroidered binding. Tasso (1544 - 1595) composed Aminta in 1573 for a garden party at the court of Ferrara. "The play has a pastoral theme, and is set in the time of Alexander the Great. The characters are shepherds and nymphs. The story is about Aminta's love for the beautiful nymph Silvia, who does not return his attentions and prefers hunting. She risks rape at the hands of a Satyr but Aminta saves her; however, again she flees from him. Aminta, finding her blood-stained veil, attempts to kill himself. Now Silvia is remorseful, comes back to cry over Aminta's body who is still alive, and the two can happily marry, following the advice that older and wiser friends had been giving them" (Wikipedia).

        Commentaria posthuma

      Irenopoli [Amsterdam]: sumptibus Irenici Philalethii [Samuel Przypkowski] Folio (31.5 cm, 12.44"). 2 vols. in 1. I: [9] ff., 325 pp. (with [3] ff. section titles). II: [2] ff., 427 pp., [28] ff. (with [15] ff. section titles).. 1656 [i.e., 1665] Polish nobleman Jonas Schlichtingius (Jonasz Szlichtyng, 1592?-1661) commenced writing these New Testament commentaries in 1655, having fled to Cracow at the outbreak of war with Sweden. Although he was taken prisoner at Stargard in 1660 and his work confiscated, the Socinian theologian continued writing "through five bad sieges, in the middle of the fury of wars, and in captivity" (cataloguer's translation, f. **2v), and revising the commentaries until his death the following year. In a brief ad lectorem, the persecuted author declares, "I would not wish the Church held responsible [for these commentaries]. Whatever is said and written is [mine]. . . ." (f. [pi]4r). Schlichtingius left his opus in the care of his sons and two friends, John Preussis and Stanislaüs Lubieniecius: In the preface to this volume, the latter discusses his life and work including his exile from Warsaw in 1647 and imprisonment in 1660. Three copious indices to scriptural sources and references within the text close the collection. Woodcut devices grace the sectional titles; refined tailpieces and large initials against a floriated background decorate the volume throughout. There is scattered Greek type. Provenance: Early inscription "Middeldorpf" on front flyleaf; bookplate and stamp of Rochester Theological Seminary (later the Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School). Deaccessioned 2005. Evidence of readership: Sparse contemporary ink annotations; underlining throughout, heavy in quires A?-C, K, M, Eee, et alibi. First edition: Published as the seventh and eighth volumes in a series of nine, comprising the Bibliotheca fratrum polonorum (1665?-68, and a supplement in 1692). Contemporary northern-European style vellum over boards ruled in blind, panels with blind-stamped central cartouches, blue speckled edges and evidence of ties; old spotting and soiling with joints (outside) partially open but binding sound. Ex-library as above: Bookplate on front pastedown, stamp to title-page (only), old library sticker to spine. Some dust-soiling and foxing, small tears, and small holes, plus a few natural paper flaws; contemporary inkstains on three or four leaves (one causing a hole at R4). A strong, interesting copy.

        L'OTTICA DELLA NATURA E DELL'EDUCAZIONE INDIRIZZATA A RISOLVERE IL FAMOSO PROBLEMA DI MOLINEUX.

      Opera dedicata a Angelo Fabbroni. Cm.20,4x13,4. Pg.XVI, 228. Legatura cartonata coeva con rinforzo al dorso. Piatti decorati. Antiporta con vignetta calcografica. In fine al volume, con numerazione autonoma "Appendice all'ottica della natura e dell'educazione, Ossia Risposta alle censure di un professore anonimo" (pg.48). Fresco esemplare, fioriture marginali. Si tratta della edizione originale di un testo di ottica composto da Cristofano Sarti, docente nell'Università di Pisa, esattamente cento anni dopo la esposizione del celebre "problema di Molineux". Il filosofo naturalista William Molyneux (Dublin, 1656 - 1698) pose nel 1692, nel "Dioptrica nova", un quesito all'epoca di notevole risonanza, segnalato anche da Locke nel "An Essay Concerning Human Understanding": se cioè un cieco, cui improvvisamente fosse donata la vista, fosse in grado di riconoscere rapidamente una sfera da un cubo, cosa che aveva evidentemente sperimentato con facilità in assenza dell'organo visivo.

        Rara lettera per la maggior parte autografa 2 agosto 1656

      Rara lettera in italiano e francese per la maggior parte autografa firmata "Chretienne" indirizzata al Marchese Villa, cavaliere dell'ordine e Generale della Cavalleria. La prima metà della lettera, scritta dal segretario, parla dell'assedio di Verrua "hora vediamo che gli spagnuoli perduta la speranza di soccorrere cotesta piazza si volgono l’animo a dar qualche colpo a quelle di questi stati, e che disegnano come saprete sopra Verrua". Segue, sotto la firma del segretario, una parte autografa, in francese, di una nota personale della reggente indirizzata al Marchese, fedele generale sin dai tempi degli assedi del 1640. Maria Cristina di Borbone, duchessa di Savoia, fu moglie di Vittorio Amedeo I e dal 1637 Reggente del Ducato di Savoia, soprannominata "Madame Reale". Morì a Torino nel 1663. Tutte le lettere dei Savoia del '600 sono ritenute di grande rarità. 4 pagine di cui la prima interamente redatta, due bianche e l'ultima con indirizzo e sigillo in ostia. Perfette condizioni.

L?Iter extaticum coeleste racconta in forma di dialogo un viaggio fantastico nel cosmo, alla luna, a Venere ed altri pianeti. E? una delle opere più curiose del noto gesuita, ed il suo unico scritto di astronomia. La prima edizione apparve a Roma nel 1656; il testo venne poi corretto e ampliato da Gaspar Schott (1608 - 66), amico e discepolo del Kircher, e ristampato a Würzburg nel 1660 con l?Iter exstaticum terrestre, in cui il viaggio immaginario prosegue sulla Terra (questa del 1671 è la seconda edizione collettiva). Kircher vi descrive le meraviglie del mondo vegetale e animale della superficie, quelle del mondo sottomarino, e le caratteristiche geologiche del mondo sotterraneo, anticipando così il suo celebre Mundus subterraneus del 1664. Caillet 5776. Cf. Merrill, Kircher, 12 e 14.

        Elements of Philosophy, the First Section concerning Body

      London: For Andrew Crooke,, 1656 & 1657. Written in Latine by Thomas Hobbes of Malmesbury. And now translated into English. To which are added Six Lessons to the Professors of Mathematicks of the Institution of Sr. Henry Saville, in the University of Oxford. [Bound with:] HOBBES, Thomas. [Stigmai ageometrias. agroichas, antipoliteas, amatheias: in Greek] or Markes of the Absurd Geometry, Rural Language, Scottish Church-Politicks And Barbarismes of John Wallis Professor of Geometry and Doctor of Divinity. 2 works bound in one quarto volume (220 x 160 mm). Contemporary unlettered calf, rebacked, titled in ink along lower edge. With 14 folding plates, some diagrams in text, plus decorative initial letters. Contemporary ownership inscription to free endpaper of one Johannis Reynolds, noting price paid 4s. Extensive ink notes to rear endpaper. Covers age darkened and scuffed in places, leather patch to rear cover, corners repaired. Tear to one large folding plate neatly repaired. Occasional light spotting and the odd chip to leaf edges. A very good copy. First edition in English of De Corpore (1655), intended as the first part of Hobbes's comprehensive philosophical scheme, the Elements of Philosophy. "This translation substantially modified the mathematical argument, especially (Chapters XVIII and XX) regarding circle-squaring, and contained other modifications elicited by criticism" (Laird, quoted in MacDonald & Hargreaves). "In this work [Hobbes] defined philosophy as 'such knowledge of effects or appearances, as we acquire by true ratiocination from the knowledge we have first of their causes or generation: And again, of such causes or generations as may be from knowing first their effects'. From this we appreciate that philosophy for Hobbes covered knowledge of the natural world and all that may be contained in it, including mankind and political society. And knowledge began from names and their logical implications. So Hobbes begins from the ideas of space and time, and hence reaches an idea of body, and from that proceeds to deduce the nature of body and its implications. He then goes on to give a full account of the central concepts of a mechanical physics always closely linked to geometry. It is on this system that his whole account will be based, moving on from dynamics to an account of motion of animals, which, equally, is the product of physical causes by contact for 'motion may produce nothing but motion'. And since man is just another special kind of animal the account will go through to human beings" (Pyle, Dictionary of Seventeenth-Century British Philosophers). "Six Lessons" was a reply to Ward and Wallis and was, in its turn, replied to by Wallis in "Due Correction for Mr. Hobbes. or, Schoole of Discipline, for not saying his lessons right. In answer to his six lessons, directed to the Professors of Mathematicks. By the Professor of Geometry". (1656).

        The Commonwealth of Oceana

      London: Printed by J. Streater, for Livewell Chapman, and are to be sold at his shop at the Crown in Popes-Head-Alley, 1656. First edition, variant with "Livewell Chapman" in the imprint. [12], 239, [1], 255-286, 189-210, [2] pp. Title page printed in red and black. Small folio. Nineteenth-century quarter calf and marbled paper boards. Joints slightly rubbed; occasional spotting and browning to text. A Classic of Utopian Thought A celebrated work of political philosophy, which had a profound influence on America's founding fathers. "The written constitution, the unlimited use of the elective principle and the separation of powers are all points which may have been derived directly from the Oceana, while all the minor points of machinery, rotation, checks and balances, popular ratifications and special protection for the constitution seem to have been first formulated by Harrington" (A. E. Levett in Encyc. of Social Sciences).Although the Dedication, signed by Harrington, is to Cromwell, and despite the fact utopia commonwealth is decidedly anti-monarchist, evidently fears of political repercussions led to the dispersal of the printing among three different printers, resulting in irregularities of typography and pagination. ESTC, alone among sources, calls for a frontispiece portrait, but if one was indeed ever issued with it, it is very rare. No copy at auction has ever appeared with one, and neither the Pforzheimer nor Huntington Library contains it.

Contemporary full burgundy morocco, covers elaborately ruled and paneled in gilt, spine elaborately ruled and tooled in gilt, five raised bands, gilt board edges and turn-ins, all edges gilt, comb marbled pastedowns and endpapers (front marbled endleaf excised, bookplate removed). Extremities worn; chipping to spine. Evidence of two pair of catches and clasps. Overall in good antiquarian condition, completely unsophisticated. Preserved in a deluxe red cloth case by Cloverleaf Studio An unrecorded Fanfare binding by the "Atelier FLORIMOND BADIER 2nd Period," for which see Esmerian Deuxieme Partie, Tables Synoptiques, Atelier Florimond Badier 1630-1668, Annex A / fin, fers 1-4. This era of the Badier Atelier is described in great detail by De Conihout / Ract-Madoux, Musee Conde, for which see the tooling on No. 17 (note identical positioning of the four inlocking tools in the 2nd and 4th horizontal compartments), No. 21 and No. 25. The elegant decoration on this binding is known as a "Reliure a decor de fanfare vide" in which the central medalion is open. A virtually identical binding appeared in the second sale of the Bibliotheque Claude L. on a 1654 Paris John Climacus (sold 29 April 2007, lot 107). * Badier (fl. 1645-1660) was a Parisian binder who apprenticed to Jean Thomas in 1630, and became Master in 1645. His name is associated with the art of pointille tooling of the art of bookbinding in 17th-century France. Badier also used a distinctive finishing stamp cut in the shape of a man's head. Only three signed bindings of his are known; many bindings attributed to him may be the work of imitators. At one time, Badier was considered by some authorities to be the legendary Le Gascon, but has since been disproven. * This is an exceptional and truly microscopic printing of the Four Gospels and the Apocalypse, in French, supposedly created at Charenton, but "available for purchased in Paris." This is a Protestant (French Geneva) edition and was probably not printed at Charenton but at Geneva. * REFERENCE: Bettye Thomas Chambers, Bibliography of French Bibles, Volume 2, no. 1277 (pp. 325) which is a separate issue of Chambers 1276 (slightly different printer's address).

Fine full red morocco with raised bands, gilt spine lettering, marbled end-papers, all edges gilt, elaborately gilt blind-tooled inner dentelles, engraved armorial book plate on front board.l The very rare first edition. "The Lettres provinciales (Provincial letters) are a series of eighteen letters written by French philosopher and theologian Blaise Pascal under the pseudonym Louis de Montalte. Written in the midst of the formulary controversy between the Jansenists and the Jesuits, they are a defense of the Jansenist Antoine Arnauld from Port-Royal-des-Champs, a friend of Pascal who in 1656 was condemned by the Faculte de Theologie at the Sorbonne in Paris for views that were claimed to be heretical. The First letter is dated January 23, 1656 and the Eighteenth March 24, 1657. A fragmentary Nineteenth letter is frequently included with the other eighteen. In these letters, Pascal humorously attacked casuistry, a rhetorical method often used by Jesuit theologians, and accused Jesuits of moral laxity. Being quickly forced underground while writing the Provincial Letters, Pascal pretended they were reports from a Parisian to a friend in the provinces, on the moral and theological issues then exciting the intellectual and religious circles in the capital. In the letters, Pascal's tone combines the fervor of a convert with the wit and polish of a man of the world. Their style meant that, quite apart from their religious influence, the Provincial Letters were popular as a literary work. Adding to that popularity was Pascal's use of humor, mockery, and satire in his arguments. The letters also influenced the prose of later French writers like Voltaire and Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Brilliantly written by Pascal, the Provincial Letters would not have been possible without the work of theologians from Port-Royal; indeed, most of the arguments Pascal deployed were already to be found in Arnauld's Theologie morale des Jesuites, something which led the Jesuit Nicolas Caussin to reply to Pascal's perceived libel. Pascal's main source on Jesuit casuistry was Antonio Escobar's Summula casuum conscientiae (1627), several propositions of which would be later condemned by Pope Innocent XI. Paradoxically, the Provincial Letters were both a success and a defeat: a defeat, on the political and theological level, and a success on the moral level. Thus, King Louis XIV ordered that the book be shredded and burnt in 1660. The final letter from Pascal, in 1657, had defied the Pope himself, provoking Alexander VII to condemn the letters. But that didn't stop most of educated France from reading them. Moreover, even Pope Alexander, while publicly opposing them, nonetheless was persuaded by Pascal's arguments. Just a few years later (1665-66, and then 1679), Alexander condemned 'laxity' in the church and ordered a revision of casuistical texts" (Wikipedia, partly after PMM). This copy bound with "Nobilissimi Scutarii Blasii Pascalis tumulus" (1662), pp. [1-2] 3-4; and with "l'Apologie pour les casuists contre les calomnies des iansenistes: par un theologien & Professeur en droit Canon. Condamnee par nosseigneurs les prelats, & par la Faculte de Theologie de Paris". Paris, 1659. pp [i-iv], 1-191. In all a beautiful copy of Pascal's 18 Provincial letters, bound in fine red morocco in 1865 by Chambolle-Duru, for the collection of Benzon (?) and including two other rare works relating to Pascal. Further provenance: inscription to title 'Ex libris Congregationis domus Missionis Trecensis', repeated on the 8th letter. PMM, 140..

        The Antilles and the Lucayes and Caribs in between " Les Antilles &c. Entre lesquelles sont Les Lucayes, et Les Caribes

      Americas: Paris Par N Sanson ... Chez Pierre Mariette. 1656-8. Copper engraved map of the Caribbean by Nichols sanson from his"Cartes Generales De Toutes Les Parties Du Monde". Original outline colour; verso blank. The map shows all the islands of the Caribbean with the southern tip of Florida and the coasts to the south. Decorative title cartouche . Good impression; slight dampstaining to edges, far from plate ; small stain just below cartouche. Nicolas Sanson (1600-1667) is generally acknowledged as the founder of the great French school of geographers and cartographers that supplanted the Dutch as the leading European map-makers. His work was acclaimed for its geographical accuracy and high standard of engraving. As a consequence, his many maps received a wide diffusion. His career marks the start of the process by which Paris superseded Amsterdam as the centre of European map production. Nicolas studied Ancient History as a young man, and this awoke in him an interest in classical geography. His first map, of ancient Gaul was made in 1618, when he was only 18. Sanson had three sons, Nicolas (1626-1648), Guillaume (d.1703) and Adrien (d.1708), and a grandson Pierre Moullard-Sanson (d.1730), all of whom were involved in the family's map-making activities. After Sanson settled in Paris his work came to the attention of King Louis XIII, who eventually appointed Sanson Geographe Ordinaire du Roi, one of whose duties was to tutor the King in geography. Sanson published some 300 maps in his career, though his first most famous atlas, the folio "Cartes Generales De Toutes Les Parties Du Monde" was not published until 1658. He would go into partnership with Pierre Mariette, a publisher of prints. Sanson also prepared a series of quarto atlases of the different continents. These scarce atlases are more frequently encountered in the Dutch piracy, engraved by Anthony d'Winter, first published in 1683. The Sanson atlases are rarely found with a standard set of maps; the practice seems to have been that additional, or revised, plates would be inserted as available. After Sanson's death the business was continued by his two surviving sons and grandson, in partnership with, and later superseded by Alexis Hubert Jaillot. Credit must go Jaillot and Pierre Duval for re-engraving his maps, many still unprinted at his death, and re-publishing them in face of strong competition from the Dutch, who continued to dominate the market until the end of the century.
