        Le Cuisinier François, Enseignant la Maniere de bien apprester & assoisonner toutes sortes de viandes,grasses & maigres, legumes, patisseries , &c

      Paris: Pierre David, 1658. Early Edition. Hardcover (Full Leather). Very Good Condition. Contemporary full leather, spine gilt wih 5 raised bands. Corners worn, hinge cracked but binding sound. Light foxing and browning in spots, generally quite clean. (xvi),414. Cagle 262 (the 1653), Vicaire 496 (the 1654), Bitting 275 (the 1656 Hague), Oberle 82 (the 1686). An early Paris edition of the first great French cookbook and the first book of haute cuisine. Originally published in 1651 in Paris by Pierre David - all early editions, and especially all early Paris editions, are scarce. Though La Varenne mixes earlier medieval recipes in with the more modern fare (blancmange, venison pie with foye gras en ragoust), the overall effect was groundbreaking as La Varenne's genius and recent inventions like the fork and plate (replacing the bread trencher) conspired to change cookery forever. Size: 8vo (octavo). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Cooking, Wine & Dining; Inventory No: CAT000074.

        LA METHODE NOUVELLE & INVENTION EXTRAORDINAIRE DE DRESSER LES CHEVAUX. Les travailler selon la nature et parfaire la nature par la subtilité de l?art; laquelle n?a jamais été trouvée que par le très noble haut et très puissant Prince Guillaume Marquis et Comte di Newcastle, Vicomte de Mansfield...... Traduit de l?Anglais de l?Auteur en François par son Commandement.

      chez Iacques van Meurs 1658 In folio max. (mm. 520x370), legatura alle armi in p. pelle bazana coeva (restaurata; rifatto in pelle mod. il dorso a cordoni con filetti e tit. oro su tassello), cornice e stemma dorati ai piatti. Rarissima "edizione originale" di questa mitica opera, fra le più ricercate di tutta la storia della letteratura equestre, di cui offriamo soltanto la parte iconografica così composta: - antiporta incisa, a doppia pagina + 42 tavole, pure a doppia pagina, incise in rame e numerate. Magnifiche sono le illustrazioni, per numero e qualità: disegnate da Abraham van Diepenbeke di Anversa ed incise in rame da vari illustri artisti di questa città, le tavole sono impostate come vere e proprie composizioni pittoriche e, similmente a quelle del Pluvinel, fanno riferimento alla storia. Vi figurano: parecchi ritratti dell'A. nella sua apoteosi (su un carro trionfale trascinato da centauri e circondato da cavalli inginocchiati; in volo a cavallo circondato da cavalli seduti, ecc,), personaggi della sua famiglia, il Re Carlo II d'Inghilterra, come pure castelli, dimore, parchi, ecc., sullo sfondo. Per lo più le tavole rappresentano "des chevaux, des airs de manège, des haras, des chasses, des mors et des épérons, etc. Malgré les incorrections de dessin dans la représentation des chevaux - comme toujours à cette époque - ces planches ont une véritable valeur artistique.. Dans certains exemplaires, un ?I? est ajouté à la date qui devient ainsi 1658?. Così Mennessier,II, p. 247. Cfr. anche Brunet,I,1700: ?Edition originale, publiée sous les yeux de l?auteur, pendant son exil, dont il passa une grande partie à Anvers. Elle est très recherchée par rapport aux 42 belles estampes (non compris le frontisp. gravé) dont elle contient les premières épreuves: les exemplaires s?en trouvent fort difficilement, parce qu?une partie de l?édition a été brulée dans les magasin du libraire? - Wells,1396 - Lewine, p. 383 - Graesse,I,93 - Nissen,848 - Benezit,IV, p. 568: "Abraham Van Diepenbeeck (1596 - 1675) entra dans l'atelier de Pierre Paul Rubens, le grand maitre de l'Ecole flamande, dont il devint l'élève et l'ami. Son habileté et la finesse de ses travaux le placèrent parmi ses meilleurs élèves.. Il travailla pour William Cavendish, lord de New Castle, pour lequel il fit plusieurs portraits ainsi que des paysages..". Bell?esemplare, ben conservato. .

I suoi interessi scientifici vengono allora contaminati da una forte tendenza al misterico; da questa sperimentazione nasce "Physica Curiosa", il suo testo più celebre. L'opera in esame è la sola prima parte di un poderoso lavoro, e la sezione in esame riguarda l'ottica a cui Schott dedicò molti studi, in particolare alla camera oscura seguendo le orme di Keplero. Il lavoro di Keplero sulla camera oscura gli permise di risolvere uno dei più importanti enigmi sull'ottica del tempo: il funzionamento dell'occhio,  con l'immagine capovolta formata sulla retina. Egli correttamente confrontò la camera oscura con l'occhio partendo dall'idea che  Leonardo da Vinci aveva nell'identificare il ruolo della lente e la retina. Questo esperimento fu realizzato nel 1657 da  Kaspar Schott, con l'occhio di un bue. Come sappiamo, l'immagine sulla retina non è destinato ad essere 'visto' ma viene inviato attraverso il nervo ottico al cervello, dove viene tradotto. Esemplare con forti ossidazioni a molte pagine, dovute alla scadente qualità della carta.

        Pseudodoxia Epidemica: Or Enquiries Into Very Many Received Tenents and Commonly Presumed Truths, . . . Also Urn Burial, and Garden of Cyrus

      London: Edward Dod, 1658. Fourth Edition. Three-Quarter Leather. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾. Book. [16] plus 468pp plus [16] Alph. Table plus 73 pp for Urn Burial and Garden of Cyrus essays. Modern 3/4 calf with marbled boards pristine. Tightly bound. Pages of Pseudodoxia have light soilage on some pages, and one page with small tear/chip in corner, but overall in fine condition. Some light dampstaining on bottom of final pages bound in (Garden of Cyrus) and a tiny wormhole affecting the top edge of some pages thereto, not affecting text. Otherwise, this is a fine copy overall. Includes a plate of four urns and another plate of geometric design before final essay. The key work, Pseudodoxia, is one of the precursors of the Enlightenment. Brown attempted to dispel superstitions, and under the influence of Bacon, apply reasoning, observation and objectivity to examine a host of old wive's tale, religious dogma, and the like.

        Animalium: Historia Sacra

      Amsterdam: Jan Jansson, 1658. 5th edition of a book very popular in its time, which includes natural histories of dragons, unicorns and many other seldom-seen beasties. 16mo in stiff vellum boards, probably original (though the endpapers are not), with leather stitching probably added later. Edges stained blue. The engraved title page depicts many creatures both familiar and strange. Good; the repair of the binding makes it quite stiff, broken at title page (1cm portion of title page attached to fep). Spot stains on rear board; some stains on outer pages but mostly very clean. The title page bears an interesting history of owners: at the bottom is written "Ad libros Johannis Mulleri pertice", probably the 1st owner; then there is "J.D. Mauser ex patr. libr. 1742"; also "Plagwitz - Leipzig 1880". All are written quite small. The type is very small here but well printed, by a publisher known for some early editions of the Mercator Atlas. 631 pp. + indices..

Collected and compliled with much pains and industry, By Samuel Morland, Esq. During his abode in Geneva, in quality of His Highness Commissioner Extraordinary for the Affairs of the said Valleys and particulary for the Distribution of the Collected Moneys, among the remnant of those poor distressed People.

      London, Henry Hills, for Adoniram Byfield 1658. (68) 709 p. Rebound half Leather with ribbed back and richly decorated with stamps, Folio (with multiple engravings in the text, without the map and portrait of the author. Samuel Morland 1625-1695, was a diplomatist, mathematician and inventor. In 1655 Morland was sent by Oliver Cromwell on a mission to Italy to protest at actions taken against the Waldensians by the Duke of Savoy. During his residence in Geneva, Morland prepared minutes, and provured records, vouchers and attestations from which he might compile a correct history of the Waldenses. In 1656 Morland arrived at Whitehall, and shortly afterwards received the thanks of a select committee appointed by Cromwell to inquire into his proceedings. Two years later he published this work, 'The History of the Evangelical Churches of the Valleys of Piemont &c.' This volume, which was illustrated with sensational prints of the supposed sufferings of the Waldenses, 'operated like Fox's Book of Martyrs'.).

Enthält: Leo Armenius - Catharina von Georgien - Carolus Stuardus - Beständige Mutter - Cardenio und Celinde - Majuma - Kirchhoffs-Gedanken - Oden - Thränen über das Leiden Jesu Christi - Sonnette (vier Bücher) - Absurda Comica Oder Herr Peter Squentz, Schimpff-Spiel. - Genau wie im Exemplar von Faber du Faur sind hier (vor den Peter Squentz) noch eingebunden: "Papinianus" (mit Kupfertitel und 7 Kupfer-Tafeln) und "Verlibtes Gespenste" - andere Exemplare haben statt dieser beiden Titel auch 79 Seiten Epigrammata eingebunden. Das Stück Peter Squentz, hier mit Noten, ist ein wichtiges frühes Beispiel für die Rezeption von Shakespeare in Deutschland. "The English influence is beyond question, and is confirmed by the figure of the Pickelhäring. The English Comedians presumably performed the Midsummer Night's Dream in Germany... Gryphius' text often departs very far from the original, but some passages read almost like a translation..." (Faber d.

        D. Justiniani, Sacratissimi Principis, Institutionum, sive Elementorum, libri quatuor, Notis perpetuis multo, quam hucusque, diligentius illustrati, Curo & studo Arnoldi Vinnii I. C. Editio postrema ab Auctore recognita.

      Amstelaedami Ex Officina Elzdeviriana 1658 - 12mo, 133 x 71 mm.s, pp. [xxiv], 643 [644 - 646 blank], with fine additional engraved title-page, with the Elzevir device as vignette on the printed title-page, contemporary red morocco, gilt-ruled border on each cover, spine richly gilt in compartments, all edges gilt; slight wear to base of spine, but generally a very good and attractive copy, with two early, probably contemporary hand-written ownership labels on the front paste-down end-paper: "Jullienne" and "J. B. Q. Malaclie." It would be pleasant to think that the first label and autograph is that of the art collector Jean de Jullienne (1686 - 1766). Arnoldus Vinnius (1588 - 1657) was one of the leading jurists of Europe in the 17th century, and this commentary on Justinian is his most important work. His commentary on Justinian, with the text, was first published in 1642, and this was the first edition to be published after his death. In his autobiography, My Own Life, David Hume noted that his "Family [had] a Notion that the Law was a proper Profession for me: But I found an unsurmountable Aversion to every thing but the Pursuits of Philosophy and general Learning; and while they fancyed that I was poring over Voet and Vinnius, Cicero and Virgil were the Authors which I was secretly devouring."

William Style was one of the law reporters forced to cease publishing his law reports in Law French and he voices his criticism in the preface thus: "I have made these reports speak English, not that I believe they will be thereby more generally useful, for I have been always and yet am of opinion, that that part of the common law which is in English hath only occasioned the making of unquiet spirits contentiously knowing, and more apt to offend others than to defend themselves; but I have done it in obedience to authority, and to stop the mouths of such of this English age, who, though they be confessedly different in their minds and judgment, as the builders of Babel were in their language, yet do think it vain, if not impious, to speak or understand more than their own mother tongue."

It is the dullest and longest of the four, but is surpassed by the Smiglesius of the same year, in which the same publisher participated. It was time for the Merry Monarch to supervene’ (Madan).If Isendoorn was dumped on Oxford, Oxford seems to have returned the compliment, since not many copies are recorded in ESTC, only one of them in Oxford itself (3 others in the UK, 2 in North America). (Madan 2391; ESTC R24067)
