        ANNALES ET HISTORIAE DE REBUS BELGICIS.

      Joannis Blaeu, Amsterdam - 1657. First Edition, 4to, [11], 569pp, plus [22] page index and errata page, frontispiece engraving of Grotius. In Latin. Vellum binding and red leather spine label, binding ltly discolored and worn at edges, several pages ltly foxed, but about 95% of all pages very clean with little, or no foxing. The hinges are tight. A narrow section of the title page about one by seven inches, under the title, has been neatly removed and replaced with a neatly tipped in piece. It appears that whatever was removed was handwritten in ink because there are two or three letters remaining. Perhaps it was a valuable signature, or notes by a prominent person, or possibly nothing more than an ugly scribble. It couldn't have been the author's signature since his dates are 1583-1645. Grotius seems to have been a Renaissance man, whose learning and interest in many fields began at an early age. The book is a history of Belgium and the Netherlands from the period 1559 to 1609. It was begun in 1603, when the author was only twenty years of age, and was still being updated and revised at the time of his death. It was then brought out by his sons, Peter and Cornelius. THE BIBLIOGRAPHER'S MANUAL OF ENGLISH LITERATURE, by Lowndes, 1834, lists only the English edition of 1665. See also Brunet II 1767. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

"Ce fut le duc de Liancourt qui donna occasion a cette fameuse lettre. Ce seigneur s'etant presente pour la Confession a Saint-Sulpice sa paroisse, le pretre lui declara qu'il ne pouvait lui donner l'absolution que sous ces deux conditions: la premiere qu'il retirat de Port-Royal sa petite fille: la seconde qu'il congediat l'abbe de Bourzeis, qui etait encore dans le Parti, et qu'il rompit tout commerce avec ces Messieurs" (Colonia, T.I, n°97, p. 314). C'est dans la "seconde Lettre", reponse d'Arnauld aux pamphlets injurieux qui avaient accompagne la publication de la premiere lettre, qu'il publia la proposition jugee heretique qui le fit chasser de la Sorbonne et poursuivre par les autorites ecclesiastiques: "On a vit un juste dans la personne de Saint-Pierre, a qui la Grace, sans laquelle on ne peut rien, a manque dans une occasion, ou l'on ne peut pas dire qu'il n'ait point peche". Pascal fut charge de repondre et lanca ses "Lettres ecrites a un provincial...". 3- Edition originale posthume ("Ce discours n'avoit point encore ete imprime"). Titre courant.

      Nürnberg, Michael Endter, 1657.. . Sehr seltene erste Ausgabe der Übersetzung von Ferrantes 'Il Sansone' durch Stubenberg (1619-1663). Dieser lebte seinerzeit - als Protestant in Österreich verfolgt - zurückgezogen auf der Schallaburg. Seine ersten literarischen Übersetzungen trugen ihm 1648 die Aufnahme in die Fruchtbringende Gesellschaft ein. Ferrante Pallavicino (1616-1644) galt als einer der geistvollsten Dichter und Satiriker im Italien des 17. Jahrhunderts. Seine teils pornographischen Werke sowie die Schriften gegen die katholische Geistlichkeit und die mächtige Familie Barberini wurden ihm jedoch zum Verhängnis. Ein gedungener Verräter lockte den Dichter nach Avignon, wo er verhaftet, des Atheismus angeklagt und 1644 nach einem Scheinprozess im Alter von 31 Jahren wegen seiner pornographischen und antiklerikalen Schriften enthauptet wurde. - Es fehlen das gestoch.

        Geometria theoretica, handgriff deß Circul un[d] Lineals, von neuem übersehen und vermehrt. Basel, Johann Brandmyller, 1676. Small oblong 16mo (8 x 10.5 cm). With many small geometrical diagrams and related illustrations in the text, and a woodcut coat of arms of the guild of "Spinwetteren" (with hammer, pair of compasses and hatchet or axe). Near contemporary half vellum, marbled sides.

      WorldCat (9 copies, including at least one incomplete); VD17, 39:114944L (2 of the same copies); not in Poggendorff. Rare second and best edition of a charming and well-printed little book on practical plane and solid geometry in German, intended for practicing artisans and attempting to elevate them above the commonplace. Georg Decker published the first edition at Basel in 1657. It was expanded for the present second edition. Jacob Meyer was treasurer of the Basel guild of "Spinwetteren", for artisans who worked with fire and with measuring compasses. After the dedication to city and other officials, Meyer provides a 19-page note to the reader, signed 1 January 1676, which comments on the first and present second edition, refers to various instruments used by "Mechanici und Handwercker" and shows the coat of arms of his guild, discusses the importance of a knowledge of geometry in various trades, with a couple Greek and Latin quotations and German translations. It is followed by a poem in honour of the art of geometry by Johann Jacob Ringle (1615-1678), and then the well-illustrated main text. At the end the book refers the reader who wishes to pursue the subject further to Daniel Schwenter, Geometriae practicae novae Tractatus, first published in 1618.With an owner's very small oval stamp on the title-page (with a crowned S v.P). In very good condition (remarkable for a book of this nature and format), with the 2 final integral blank leaves and with only a small tear along the gutter fold of the title-page. A lovely little book on geometry, with information on guilds and the use of mechanical instruments.

        L'histoire Mahometane, ou les quarante-neuf Chalifes du Macine divisez en trois livres [...].

      Paris, Remy Soubret, 1657.. 4to. (8), 9-44, 332 pp. (Bound with) II: Ibn 'Arabshah, Ahmad ibn Muhammad / Vattier, Pierre (transl.). L'histoire du grand Tamerlan divisee en sept livres. Ibid., 1658. (24), 248, (4) pp. (And) III: The same. Portrait du grand Tamerlan, avec la suite de son histoire iusques a l'establissement de l'Empire du Mogol. Paris, Vattier, Augustin Courbe & Jean Huart, 1658. (8), 146, (2). Contemp. vellum. All edges sprinkled in red.. A milestone of French Arabist scholarship in the 17th century. I: First French edition of the "General History of the World" ("Kitab al-Magmu' al-mubarak") by Girgis al-Makin ibn al-'Amid, known in the Latin tradition as Georgius Elmacinus. Born in Cairo in 602 AH (1205 AD) to a Coptic civil servant in the War Ministry, he later served in a similar function in Syria. His chronicle had previously been translated into Latin (by Erpenius) and English (by Purchas); the work "for the first time provided wider circles in the west with an overview of Islamic history from its beginnings to the Crusades and acquainted them with the prime of the Baghdad Califate, previously almost unreceived, through an account ultimately based on Tabari" (cf. Fück). - II/III: First French translation (issued in two parts) of this important critical, at times even satirical eyewitness account of the life of Tamerlane (Timur Lenk), the great Turkish conqueror of the 14th century. "A frequently malicious account, in spite of the panegyrical form in which it is couched" (cf. GAL). Based on the original Arabic text written in 1437-38 by the Syrian author Ahmad lbn 'Arabshah who was secretary to Sultan Ahmad of Baghdad. In the late 16th century Timur was made famous in Europe through Christopher Marlowe's play "Tamburlaine" (published in 1590). The 17th century western translations of Ibn Arabshah's work "for the first time acquainted the occident with a model of Arabic rhyming prose which also had the power to captivate the reader by its subject, as well as with the elaborate rhetorical style so characteristic of the literary taste of the Orient" (cf. Fück). Pierre Vattier (1623-67), physician to the Duke of Orleans, was the author of several treatises and translations on various aspects of Middle Eastern or Muslim culture. - Some browing and occasional inkstaining throughout. Top spine-end repaired. A good copy. The Macclesfield copy commanded 3,400 at Sotheby's in 2008. - I: GAL I, 348. Schnurrer, p. 115, no. 155. Gay 3568. Fück 73. Aboussouan 449 ("1558" in error). OCLC 1811219. II/III: GAL II, 29. Schnurrer, p. 137, no. 167. Fück 82. OCLC 29069177/29069426.

        Provinciales: Or, The Mysterie of Jesuitisme

      \"The first example of French prose as we know it today\"óPMM[PASCAL, Blaise]. Les Provinciales: Or, The Mysterie of Jesuitisme. Discover\'d in certain Letters, Written upon occasion of the present differences of Sorbonne, between the Jansenists and the Molinists, from January 1656 to March 1657. S.N. Displaying the corrupt Maximes and Politicks of that Society. Faithfully rendred into English. London: Printed by J.G. for R. Royston, 1657.First edition in English (first printed in French at Cologne in 1656-7). Twelvemo. [24], 409, [1, blank], [6] pp. With preliminary blank, a post-script leaf referring to the seventeenth letter, and two final leaves of errata and advertisements. Added engraved title-page by Ro[bert] Vaughan.Eighteenth-century panelled calf, neatly rebacked, retaining old morocco lettering label. Spine lettered in gilt with decorative gilt board-edges. Eighteenth-century armorial bookplate of John Hustler of Acklam mounted on verso of engraved title-page. Early ink notations at bottom of engraved title-page. Leaves Q thru Q12 have been affected by printer\'s ink, mostly just a little smudging; verso of Q10 is the only page where two lines of text have been affected. Apart from the few flaws, this is a fine copy of a very rare and famous work.This work is a series of eighteen letters in which, \"Pascal defended Arnauld and satirized his Jesuit opponents and their theological and moral views. The work was published under the pseudonym Louis de Montalte and were probably the cooperative work of Pascal, Arnauld, and Pierre Nicole, though they were principally Pascal\" (Edwards, P. The Encyclopedia of Philosophy, p. 52). Les Provinciales is considered one of the great French literary masterpieces and the first example of French prose.No translator\'s name ever appeared in any of the English editions, and to this day, the translator remains unknown. There is, however, a strong possibility that the work might have been translated by Evelyn. In 1664, a third volume on Jesuitisme appeared, and the translation was fully acknowledged by Evelyn. In his diaries, he writes: \"This day was publish\'d by me that part of the Mysterie of Jesuitism translated and collected by me, tho\' without my name, containg the Imaginarie Heresy with 4 letters and other pieces...Evelyn included the book in the list of his works sent to Dr. Plot, and though he did not refer to it again in his Diary, his interest in the subject remained very active\" (Keynes, John Evelyn, pp. 124-126).Printing and the Mind of Man 140.

        Verbeterde nieuw ontdekte distilleer en stook-konst. ... Amsterdam, Steven van Esveldt. 1763. 8vo. With engraved frontispiece of a distillery, a small engraving of a press for wine dregs in the text and a woodcut decorated initial. Contemporary half sheepskin.

      Forbes, Short history of the art of distillation 82 & p. 13; STCN (2 copies, including 1 incompl.). Rare second corrected and enlarged edition of an early handbook on distillation. In twenty chapters it describes a wide array of applications and techniques, from oil distillation to the production of brandy and Dutch gin. It includes a description of the fermentation of fruit, the technical jargon and information about distilling equipment. Forbes indicates that the author is not the same person as Jacob Bols, as has sometimes been supposed, but whether he is a relative or was not a Bols at all, we do not know. The art of distilling had long been discussed as an alchemists' secret, as part of the apothecary's trade (as in the 1657 Pharmacia galenica & chymica) and later as a scientific pursuit, but practitioners of the commercial distiller's trade generally passed on their knowledge by training apprentices rather than publishing practical handbooks. The present handbook and Pieter van Keulen's similar one of 1696 are among the few examples known.In very good condition and wholly untrimmed. Binding rubbed and chafed. A detailed early practical handbook of distillation, written by an experienced practitioner.

      1657 - Amsterdam, Johannes Jansson, 1657. Coloured. 340 x 485mm. Antique 'map-view' of Paris, with the major buildings shown in profile, with little consideration for perspective.

There has been no attempt to update the 85-year-old plan, but the three figures dressed in contemporary costume have been removed from the bottom left foreground. KOEMAN: Ja 14.
