        L'aspagyrie naturelle des fontaines minérales de Selles mandement de la Voute en Viverez, & l'anatomie, vertus & proprietez d'icelles. Où sont adjoustez les traitez descrits en la page suivante.

      Vallence, Louis Muguet, s.d. [1656], pleine reliure en daim, dos à nerfs, très lég. manques de peau sur le plat sup. -2 lignes manuscrites à l'encre rouge dans la marge sup. du f. de titre ; petite tache d'encre p. 92, sans gravité ; pp. 8 et 9 courtes de marge sup. - in-12 de (22)-124-(6) pp. ; Exemplaire de Jacques de Bane, chanoine de l'église de Viviers, avec son ex-libris sur la page de titre. Une branche de la famille de Bane était établie à La Voulte (cf. Armorial du Vivarais).Edition originale. Rarissime.Michel Chomarat, Répertoire bibliographique Rhône-Alpes, p. 136 ; Brun-Durand II-p. 228 ; Carrère, Cat. raisonné des ouvrages qui ont été publiés sur les eaux minérales, p. 458 ; Abbé A. Roche, Essai de bibliographie voultaine, pp. 140-142 ; le CCFr. ne localise que les exmplaires de la B.N.F. et ceux de la B.M. de Lyon et de Valence ; le Worldcat n'en recense aucun autre exemplaire.L'auteur est "né probablement à Marsanne dans la Drôme comme son père, autre Gaspard de Perrin ; il était établi en qualité de docteur, dans cette localité en 1657 et il dit dans [son] ouvrage [.] qu'il venait d'être guéri par les eaux de Celles, âgé de 65 ans ; il serait donc né vers 1591." (Abbé A. Roche).Celles-les-Bains se situe près de La Voulte-sur-Rhône, dont Henri de Levis-Ventadour était le co-seigneur.Gaspard de Perrin identifie trois sources différentes, Levi, Cicéron et Ventadour ; toutes trois aux vertus inégalées et chacune avec ses prescriptions. Leur composition chimique explique leur efficacité : elles "passent par le vitriol et se chargent d'un sel et esprit vitriolique emprégnés de son soulphre narcotique". Ces eaux sont non seulement "des remèdes pour la guérison des maladies et conservation de la santé", mais elles sont aussi des produits de beauté dont l'auteur veut bien partager le secret. Il indique trois moyens "des plus exquis, bénins, naturels et sans corrosion" pour "blanchir la face et conserver le teint".En outre, l'ouvrage contient diverses autres pièces : une dédicace de l'auteur à Henri de Levis, Duc de Ventadour, Comte de La Voulte, daté du 1er novembre 1656 à Marsanne ; une première réponse de Ventadour, datée du 9 décembre 1656 à Paris ; une deuxième réponse du même, datée du 16 mars 1657 à Paris ; divers poèmes adressés à l'auteur, l'un d'entre eux signé de Godemard, Me apothicaire à La Voulte ; une adresse de l'auteur "au lecteur iudicieux" et une autre à son livre ; une lettre de Perrin à Messieurs les chirurgiens et pharmaciens de La Voulte.

        Armamentarium Chirurgicvm XLIII Tabulis ... exornatum.

      The Hague, Adrian Vlacq, 1656/57, 8, (22), 328 (330), 14 pp., 44 Kupfertafeln, feiner Pergamenteinband der Zeit trotz eines fehlenden Blattes ein feines Exemplar. Second Edition, rare first Octavo Edition of "Cheiroplotheke Seu D. Joannis Sculteti, Physici &amp Chyrurgi apud Ulmenses olim felicissimi Armamentarium Chirurgicvm XLIII Tabulis Aeri elegantissimè incisis, nec ante hac visis, exornatum. Opus posthumum, Medicinæ pariter ac Chirurgiæ Studiosis perutile [et] necessarium, In quo tot, tam Veterum ac Recentiorum Instrumenta ab Authore correcta, quàm noviter ab ipso inventa, ... Cum triplici ... Indice." "Schultes is famous for his illustrations of surgical procedures and instruments. The first edition (1655) was the only edition published in folio format. This was the most popular surgical text of the 17th century." "Schultes (1595-1645), born at Ulm on the Danube, was a pupil of Hieronymus Fabricius ab Aquapendente (as was William Harvey) and Adriaan van de Spiegel at Padua where he received a doctorate in medicine, surgery, and philosophy.... His 'arsenal of surgery' was published a decade after his death by his nephew. The work contains accounts of surgical instruments, methods of bandaging and splinting, numerous operative procedures including amputation of the breast, obstetrical delivery by forceps, and one hundred case reports." Iowa 466 "The Armamentarium Chirurgicum, upon which the fame of Scultetus rests, is a remarkable book for its time. It contains a complete catalogue of all known surgical instruments, of the methods of bandaging and splinting, and a vast number of operative procedures, all of which are illustrated in graphic detail by means of numerous plates. In addition it contains a large number of case reports which give evidence of his surgical daring and skill." Zimmerman and Veith. Great Ideas in the History of Surgery. pp.250-251. This copy has the extra engraved title dated 1657 which is often missing in other copies, but. As noting is perfect, this charming book is lacking one leaf (pp.125-126, but the plate 35 (p.126) is added as facsimile.

        LES SAINCTES PRIERES DE L'AME CHRESTIENNE

      Jean Henault, Paris 1656 - 164 x 109 mm. (6 1/2 x 4 1/4"). [106] leaves. Fifth Edition. Contemporary black morocco, covers with blind-stamped armorial device of the Buade family (three griffin legs, surmounted by a crown), raised bands, two silver metal clasps, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. ENGRAVED THROUGHOUT in calligraphic script with elaborate borders and images of Christ, Mary, and the Seven Deadly Sins, all by Moreau. Front pastedown with bookplate of Roger Paultre. Bonacini 1228 (1644 ed.); For the binding: Guigard II, 130. Joints and extremities minimally rubbed (and well masked with dye), fore margin of most leaves faintly thumbed (title page just slightly more so), lower right marginal corner of a dozen leaves with small, very weak dampstain, final page with adhesion at inner margin, other trivial defects, but still quite an appealing copy, the binding solid, lustrous, and scarcely worn, and the engraved text bright, smooth, and clean. This is an especially charming engraved prayer book that belonged to a very prominent 17th century French family. Moreau (ca. 1600-48) was a calligrapher and writing-master who also published writing manuals. He designed a special cursive type called "lettres financières," which he dedicated to Louis XIII, who made him a printer in ordinary in 1643. The present item does not use his moveable type, but employs engraved prayers done on separate copperplates, which were then fitted with any one of 16 ornamental borders, featuring birds, mermaids, cherubs, fruits, and flowers. In addition to the borders, there are also a number of engravings of flowers or fruit, as well as images of saints, scenes from the life of Christ, royal arms, and portrayals of the Seven Deadly Sins personified (envy is particularly powerful as a Medusa-like creature accompanied by a mangy dog). According to Guigard, this copy was bound with the arms of Antoine de Buade, Comte de Palluau, counsellor of state for Henri IV, and first steward of the royal household. He had a substantial library, but he died in 1633 (and his son Henri died in 1622), so this must have been bound for his grandson Louis de Buade, Comte de Frontenac et de Palluau (1625-98), who was known as a bibliophile himself and who served as Governor General of New France from 1672-82 and from 1689-98. Roger Paultre was both a collector and respected scholar of French emblem books and other illustrated works; his collection was sold in 1993 at Drouot.

        [South America] Zuyder deel van America uyt gegeven

      Colom's is one of the earliest obtainable Dutch Sea Charts to show the Sea Coasts of South America. The map shows the coastal features of South America south of the Equator, with a large inset of Central America.  The chart is executed in the Portolan style, with rhumblines and fine coastal detail for the time period. Arnold Colom was the son of Jacob Colom, a well-regarded Amsterdam bookseller, printer, and chart-maker. Colom produced two sea atlases, a guide and pilot for the Mediterranean and a general sea atlas of the World. Colom's Zee Atlas, published between 1654-58, was one of the largest format sea atlases of the 17th Century, with each chart printed from an oversized copper plate. Koeman describes the atlas as "One of the most important atlases in the well known category of Dutch sea-atlases". Apart from its rarity, the Zee-Atlas was of importance for its inclusion of the earliest Dutch sea chart of the New Netherlands to appear in an atlas (Jacob Theunisz Lootsman's chart is believed to pre-date it, but seems not to have been regularly published until later), while the "three charts of the oceans are on the same scale (1:14mill.) as Portuguese and Spanish charts of that time. It marked the first time that such charts were published as atlas sheets" (Koeman IV, p.115).

Small 4to. With engraved frontispiece drawn and engraved by Joannes Lamsvelt and 16 plates engraved for this edition, at least mostly by Lamsvelt. Recased in contemporary(?) vellum, new endpapers.

      R. Davidson, A book collector's notes, p. 43; STCN (4 copies); Tiele, Land- en volkenkunde, pp. 111-112; cf. Landwehr, VOC 373 (the associated journal). Rare second Dutch edition of an extensively illustrated account of an imaginary voyage to western Australia, based on the story of the wreck of the VOC ship Vergulde Draeck in 1656, first published in French in 1676 (without illustrations) and in Dutch in 1682 (with illustrations), all three anonymously. Many of the illustrations may have been inspired by better known exotic lands, such as Southeast Asia, the East Indies, India and Iran, and some depict natives in Islamic turbans. Europeans still knew almost nothing about Australia when Vairasse first published his account and his wild stories caught the imagination of the public and went through many editions.

      London: Jacob Flesher, 1656. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. Very good antiquarian condition. Octavo, 184 x 123 x 24 mm (binding), 180 x 121 x 20 mm (text block). Collation: [+]8 (++)8, B-N8, O4, P1 (Errata leaf, lacking in this copy as commonly). Pagination: [32], 74, 68, 57 pp. Bound in contemporary sprinkled calf. Caps chipped, head joints starting, corners bumped. Interior: Title with small chip out of fore margin, damp-staining to tail margin of first gathering and last two gatherings. Preserved in a folding cloth protective case. Only edition of this important illustrated astronomical text, An attractive volume, well printed with scores of typographic diagrams and one folding plate. Seth Ward, English mathematician, autodidact, and astronomer, here expands upon Kepler's Second Law of Planetary Motion, one of three fundamental laws of astronomy and physics which is of threefold significance: 1). It describes elliptical orbits with the Sun at one of two foci; 2). Dictates equal areas and equal time intervals swept out by a rotating line segment, and 3). States that the square of the orbital period of a body is proportional to the cube of the semi-major axis of its orbit. The Astronomia Geometrica was essentially Ward's second, and more complete, response to Ismail Boulliau's "Astronomia Philolaica" (Paris: 1645), in which Boulliau attempted to remove some of the notorious difficulties that Kepler's Second Law had presented to astronomers in the thirty-six years since its introduction to science. But Boulliau, in his work, only succeeded in making matters more confusing. He imagined cones of sorts, and pictured planets moving about axes central to these cones. In the present work Ward remarked that this was like imagining a body moving in an "elliptical orbit with uniform angular velocity about the empty focus of the ellipse, the Sun being at the other focus" (Source: ODNB). Seth Ward (1617-1689), Bishop of Salisbury, was a founder member of the Royal Society, and in 1649 was appointed Savilian professor of astronomy at Oxford University earning his reputation with his theory of planetary motion which he expounded in "Astronomica." Ward's work was highly influential, especially among the next generation of English and Continental astronomers, who would have had to have struggled with trial and error and tedious approximation using Kepler's original formulae.

(17) (1bc.) ; 173pp. (5), relié. - Fifth edition of Car Works, whose original was published in 1648; and original edition of the New Car works. Mellan a frontispiece to the first volume, a headband and a drop cap in the epistle and a beautiful portrait of the author by Champaigne engraved by Nanteuil. Binding in full brown sheepskin period. Back ornate nerves. As an exhibit in red morocco. A lack headdress. Hitch with the upper jaw missing tail. Frottements.Bon copy. 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 s'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.

Small 4to. With engraved frontispiece drawn and engraved by Joannes Lamsvelt and 16 plates engraved for this edition, at least mostly by Lamsvelt. Recased in contemporary(?) vellum, new endpapers.

      - R. Davidson, A book collector's notes, p. 43; STCN (4 copies); Tiele, Land- en volkenkunde, pp. 111-112; cf. Landwehr, VOC 373 (the associated journal). Rare second Dutch edition of an extensively illustrated account of an imaginary voyage to western Australia, based on the story of the wreck of the VOC ship Vergulde Draeck in 1656, first published in French in 1676 (without illustrations) and in Dutch in 1682 (with illustrations), all three anonymously. Many of the illustrations may have been inspired by better known exotic lands, such as Southeast Asia, the East Indies, India and Iran, and some depict natives in Islamic turbans. Europeans still knew almost nothing about Australia when Vairasse first published his account and his wild stories caught the imagination of the public and went through many editions. They give a good picture of what was then known and/or surmised about these little-explored regions and may have generated more enthusiasm for voyages of exploration than the more sober factual accounts. The frontispiece shows 9 little images of fabulous creatures. Some may now seem comic but at the time they probably seemed more plausible than a kangaroo or a platypus.With the margins of a dozen leaves and the frontispiece tattered and restored, two leaves with a couple tears into the text repaired and another with the corner torn off (but preserved loose) affecting 3 words of a shoulder note.

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 Faculté de Théologie 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 Théologie morale des Jésuites, 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. Condamnée par nosseigneurs les prelats, & par la Faculté 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Combattimento di Tritoni

      1656 - Acquaforte con ritocchi di puntasecca, firmata in lastra in basso a destra. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, sottili margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Il Rosa ha eseguito tre stampe di questa tipologia raffigurante il combattimento di tritoni, probabilmente assai congeniale al suo modo eroico di interpretare l’antico. È chiara nell’artista l’ispirazione desunta dalle Battaglie di dei marini di Andrea Mantegna, delle quali ricrea anche lo spirito gioioso del mito pagano, e con le analoghe composizioni di Odoardo Fialetti. Le opere sembrano essere state eseguite nello stesso periodo delle Diverse Figure, databili tra il 1656 e il 1658. Etching with touches of drypoint, signed in plate lower right. Beautiful proof, printed on contemporary laid paper, thin margins, in excellent condition. The Rosa has performed three prints of this type depicting the battle of newts, probably very congenial to his own way of interpreting the ancient heroic. It is clear in the artist the inspiration derived from the Battles of marine Gods by Andrea Mantegna, which also recreates the joyful spirit of pagan myth, and with similar compositions of Odoardo Fialetti. The works appear to have been made in the same period of Different figures, dating from between 1656 and 1658. Bartsch 12; Rotili 13; Wallace 93; Massari, Tra Mito ed Allegoria, p. 440, 166.

Fint samtida pergamentband med handskriven ryggtitel och pärmar med blindpressad ramlinje. Stänkta snitt. Delvis lätt bruntonad. Små rostfläckar på s. 61, 64 och 104. Oskuren yttermarginal på s. 289-96. Äldre bibliotekssignum på frampärmens insida. På frampärmen de svartpressade initialerna "BFVL". Titelbladets baksida med en gammal vapenstpl med initialerna "BFHVL" överst. Fint ex. Collijn Sveriges bibliografi 1600-talet 329 respektive 825. Warmholtz Bibliotheca historica Sueo-Gothica 1585, noten, för det andra arbetet. Edmund Gripenhielm (1622-75) hette Figrelius innan han adlades 1660. Han utnämndes efter en lång bildningsresa i Europa till professor i historia vid Uppsala universitet 1650 och blev riksråd 1673. Han var dessutom Karl XI:s lärare. Föreliggande verk behandlar den romerska skulpturen och är Sveriges första tryckta konstvetenskapliga arbete. Enligt Sten Lindroth är den "typisk för genren, imponerande främst som lärdomsprov. Figrelius har gått igenom hela den tillgängliga antika litteraturen, textställen från grekiska och romerska författare flödar, också inskriftsmaterial använder han. Här stod allt att inhämta i ämnet, systematiskt ordnat: de olika slagen av romersk skulptur, hur guda- och kejsarbilder dyrkades, vilka enskilda personer som hedrades med statyer och formella ting om känslornas uttryck i höjda händer (gestuosa manus). Utblickar ges mot Grekland och Orienten, religionshistoriska problem antyds. Plinius var en guldgruva, liksom Strabon, Suetonius och Plutarchos; bara sporadiskt öppnar Figrelius diskussion med moderna forskare. Fastän den antika skulpturen för tidens klassicism framstod som högsta norm, undviker han estetiska värderingar". Schefferus arbete behandlar "de gamles halsringar" enligt Lindroth.

Contemporary blind-tooled calf with gilt spine. Edges sprinkled in red. Third edition (in fact, a re-issue with changed title page date only) of Alpini's further observations on exotic plants.

His work includes the first European recognition of the medicinal value of coffee and introduced banana and baobab. "Alpini became professor of botany at Padua after having spent three years in Egypt" (Garrison/M., p. 992). - Binding rebacked, showing some light wear to extremeties, but a good, clean copy.

        The Antiquities of Warwickshire Illustrated; From Records, Leiger-Books, Manuscripts, Charters, Evidences, Tombes, and Armes: Beautified With Maps, Prospects and Portraictures

      London: Thomas Warren, 1656. First Edition. Hardcover. Good. Folio, attractively bound in contemporary paneled leather boards (some restoration to edges and corners) and newer leather spine with 6 raised bands, gilt titles. Bookplate of Richard E. Coe on front pastedown, and his name in ink on the front free endpaper, dated 1967, along with earlier signatures of John Edward Taylor Loveday (1876) and William Godwin. pp [xvi], 232, 283-460, 471-732, 743, 724-826, [14], with frontis portrait of the author and numerous engraved maps, plates, and illustrations in the text. Binding sound. Frontis portrait with repair to verso, old dampstain extending 2-3 inches up and 5-6 inches out from from lower gutter visible on much of text-block, occasional pages with soiling or repaired marginal tears. DNB: "Over twenty-five years in the making, [The Antiquities of Warwickshire] stood in the tradition pioneered by William Lambarde's Perambulation of Kent (1576). It is also indebted in its method to Camden's Britannia, following the rivers of the shire in order to progress from site to site. The history of the towns is briefly given, with speculations on the meanings of the placenames. Regional commodities are noted. But the main business is to record the families associated with each place, to record their notable deeds and to list their intermarryings and burials. The hundreds of coats of arms that fill the pages make it clear that genealogy is the prime concern of the book. Warwickshire was extensively illustrated with etchings by Hollar, including an authoritative frontispiece depicting Dugdale surrounded by manuscripts; his continued desire thus to enliven his books with illustrations was a commendable advance in the production of antiquarian works at this period."
