Completo delle Animadversiones di Casaubon che annunciate nel frontespizio dell'Athenaeus dell'edizione di Heidelberg vennero pubblicate solo tre anni dopo per i tipi del De Harsy. Il libro è un simposio romanzato di 21 artisti scrittori musicisti e chirurghi. Si discute di tutte le cose che secondo l'uso greco dovrebbero ornare un banchetto. Vengono citati i nomi dei più famosi gastronomi e cuochi e vengono citate le prime ricette di ogni autore in ogni lingua. Vengono trattati anche le virtù e le qualità dei diversi vini. This compendious encyclopedic work by the Greek - speaking Egyptian Athenaeus portrays a Roman dinner party attended by the brightest deepest and most learned thinkers of the early Third Century. The banquet lasts several days in order to allow conversation to take its course. Topics range lightly over law medicine and literature but the real subject at hand is food in all its aspects. In a sense it is the oldest extant text on cooking. The Deipnosophistae ("Scholars at Dinner") is an important source of information on the gastronomic customs of the ancient world. It also quotes fragments of ancient literature which have otherwise been lost. The eminent Huguenot humanist Isaac Casaubon (1559 - 1614) established the definitive text of Deipnosophistae in 1597 when it was first printed alongside the Latin translation of Jacques Dalechamps. Casaubon's commentary on the work appeared several years later and was frequently bound together with the bilingual text. Title pages printed in red and black.

        A Dialogue of Polygamy, Written Originally in Italian: Rendred into English by a Person of Quality; and Dedicated to the Author of that well-known Treatise call'd, Advice to a Son. [WITH] A Dialogue of Divorce Between Ochinus and Meschinus.

      London: John Garfield, 1657. First. hardcover. near fine. [xxii], 89, (i), 61 pages. Two parts in one volume. Slim 12mo, handsomely bound in 18th century full polished calf with double fillet borders and ornate backstrip; inner dentelles and marbled endpapers. 89 pages London, Printed for J. Garfeild [sic], at the Rolling-Press for Pictures, neer the Royal Exchange in Cornhill, over against Popes-head Alley, 1657. First edition in English. A near fine copy. A controversial work by the Calvanist, Bernardino Ochino. He spent much of his adult life fleeing throughout Europe to avoid persecution and in Zurich he wrote his famous Dialogi XXX, which included these 2 dialogues on Polygamy and Divorce. They were poorly received; "Divorce" was thought to be repellant, and his detractors claimed that "Polygamy" was more of a justification than a refutation. --Wing O126; ESTC R9210.

        SELECT OBSERVATIONS ON ENGLISH BODIES: OR, CURES BOTH EMPERICALL AND HISTORICALL, PERFORMED UPON VERY EMINENT PERSONS IN DESPERATE DISEASES . . . NOW PUT INTO ENGLISH FOR COMMON BENEFIT BY JAMES COOKE PRACTITIONER IN PHYSICK AND CHIRURGERY

      London: Printed for John Sherley, 1657. FIRST EDITION n. This collection of case histories and remedies by a Stratford physician is of interest for its insights into 17th century medicine and for its connection to William Shakespeare. John Hall (ca. 1574-1635) was the only physician in Stratford-on-Avon, and he treated patients within a 20-mile radius of his home, and from as far away as Worcester. He recorded case histories in Latin, making note of the disease and symptoms, and of the successful method of treatment. Norman notes that "Hall had an excellent reputation as a physician, and the single extant volume of his medical diary (now in the British Library) records the wide range of diseases he was called upon to treat and the remedies he concocted for them." Although the modern reader will find some of these "cures" alarming, Hall was ahead of his time in his restrained use of bleeding and in his treatment of scurvy. Hall had married Shakespeare's daughter Susanna, the "Mrs. Hall of Stratford" whose bout with colic is recounted here on p. 24. After his death, she sold a couple of volumes of his medical diary to James Cooke, who had served as a surgeon in the English Civil War. Cooke translated the Latin into English and published the present work in 1657. At the beginning of this volume, our early owner, Dr. John Pither, noted the date of his birth (1679), his marriage (1731), and his 63rd birthday (1742), and he also made marginal notes about remedies he concocted. The number of ownership signatures here indicates the work's value as a medical reference during multiple periods, even into our own time, when it passed into the hands of physician and bibliophile Bent Juel-Jensen (1922-2006) and the distinguished collection of Robert S. Pirie. This work is not commonly seen in the marketplace, and the heavy use to which copies were subjected makes it difficult to find one as well preserved as ours.. 145 x 80 mm. (5 3/4 x 3 1/4"). 12 p.l., 316 pp. (lacking final two blanks). FIRST EDITION. Contemporary sheep, flat spine with remnants of red label. Front inside cover with book label of Bent Juel-Jensen and with ink signature of John Lenro; rear inside cover with bookplate of Robert S. Pirie; front flyleaf with ink ownership inscription and biographical notes of Johannes Pither, M.D.; half title with ink inscription of Evebia Colley; verso of half title with neatly written Latin quotation from Herophilus; title page with ink signature of Thomas Smith at foot; occasional ink marginalia in Dr. Pither's hand. Wing H-356; Krivatsy 5217; Norman 971. Short tear to head and tail of front joint, half-inch wormhole along tail edge of front board, front hinge open (but nothing loose), shallow chips to edges of endleaves, one quire a little proud, occasional minor stains or rust spots, other trivial defects, but still an excellent copy, with no serious problems, of a work usually found in lamentable condition. This collection of case histories and remedies by a Stratford physician is of interest for its insights into 17th century medicine and for its connection to William Shakespeare. John Hall (ca. 1574-1635) was the only physician in Stratford-on-Avon, and he treated patients within a 20-mile radius of his home, and from as far away as Worcester.

        LES PROVINCIALES: OR, THE MYSTERIE OF JESUITISME . . . DISPLAYING THE CORRUPT MAXIMES AND POLITICKS OF THAT SOCIETY

      London: Printed by J. G. for R. Royston, 1657. First Edition in English y. Called by PMM "a noble defense of religious faith," this is the initial printing in English of Pascal's denunciaiton of the Jesuit order, in a lovely 19th century French binding. Pascal (1623-62) was a man of many attainments in several fields, among them physics, philosophy, and mathematics (he is said to have invented the first cash register and the first horse-drawn omnibuses of Paris). Above all, he was a profound thinker, a devout Christian, and a writer whose work was always characterized by purity and precision. In his early twenties, he embraced the Jansenist cause, and when the leading French Jansenist Arnaud was accused by the Jesuits of harboring heretical views, Pascal produced the present work, written in the form of a series of 18 letters that attempt to prove the orthodoxy of the Jansenist position on divine grace, and that castigate the Jesuits for a flexible casuistry that sacrifices moral uprightness for the pursuit of power. Written simply, lucidly, and objectively, the work was enormously successful and dealt the Jesuits a serious setback. PMM observes, " Pascal's weapon was irony, and the freshness with which the gravity of the subject contrasts with the lightness of manner is an enduring triumph." Not surprisingly, the book was put on the Index and ordered to be burned. The English translator, writing during the period of Cromwell's rule, reveals himself in the preface as fanatically opposed to the Jesuit order. He gives the author of the letters the name of Louis de Montalte, but is aware that it is a pseudonym. The Joly name is one of the most distinguished in French bookbinding history. After having apprenticed with a provincial binder, Antoine Joly (1838-1917) moved to Paris, found employment with the celebrated Léon Gruel, later formed a partnership with Thibaron in 1874, succeeded him 11 years later, and, in 1892, turned the business over to his son Robert (1870?-1924). "An excellent gilder like his father, Robert designed and produced a range of classical covers. In World War I he was commissioned by Henri Vever to execute bindings decorated by Jules Chadel and Adolphe Giraldon." (Duncan and De Bartha) The present binding is made with the highest quality morocco, is full of animation and creativity, is executed with unfailing expertise, and is offered here in remarkable condition.. 150 x 90 mm. (6 x 3 3/8"). 11 p.l., 409 (i.e., 509), [7] pp. (without the initial blank; including errata and ads at the end). First Edition in English. FINE EARLY 20TH CENTURY CRUSHED BURGUNDY MOROCCO BY JOLY FILS (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with central mandorla formed by panels intricately tooled in gilt, fleuron cornerpieces, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with central fleuron enclosed by a lozenge of circlets, volute cornerpieces, gilt titling, densely gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. With extra engraved title page. Wing P-643; Graesse V, 146; PMM 140 (French edition). Very small inner margins because tightly bound, otherwise A BEAUTIFUL COPY, the binding unworn and especially bright, and entirely clean and fresh internally.

After having apprenticed with a provincial binder, Antoine Joly (1838-1917) moved to Paris, found employment with the celebrated Léon Gruel, later formed a partnership with Thibaron in 1874, succeeded him 11 years later, and, in 1892, turned the business over to his son Robert (1870?-1924). "An excellent gilder like his father, Robert designed and produced a range of classical covers. In World War I he was commissioned by Henri Vever to execute bindings decorated by Jules Chadel and Adolphe Giraldon." (Duncan and De Bartha) The present binding is made with the highest quality morocco, is full of animation and creativity, is executed with unfailing expertise, and is offered here in remarkable condition.
