Balzac, Jean-Louis, Guez de :
Paris, Augustin Courbé, 1658 (achevé d'imprimer pour la première fois le 30 novembre 1657 à Rouen, par L. Maurry) ; in-12 ; vélin ivoire à recouvrement, dos à nerfs, pièce de titre bordeaux, tranches marbrées (reliure du XIXe) ; (4) ff. dont frontispice gravé et titre avec marque gravée d'Augustin Courbé, 278 pp., (14) ff. de Table et Privilège. Edition originale ? Brunet (I-632 et 633) donne l'édition in-4 comme la première ; deux motifs puissants nous permettent d'en douter, d'abord la mention "achevé d'imprimer pour la première fois le 30 novembre 1657 à Rouen, par L. Maurry", ensuite parce que la marque d'Augustin Courbé, sur la page de titre, est surimprimée en pied et peu lisible par la mention "imprimé à Rouen et se vend" ; aux bibliographes de trancher.Bel exemplaire de cet ouvrage considéré, bien que posthume, comme le chef-d'oeuvre de Guez de Balzac.La page de titre a une toute petite déchirure en marge, sans perte. Port et assurance inclus pour tout envoi en France Métropolitaine.

Jan VAN LOON (Attivo tra il 1649 - 86)
1658. Decorativa carta della Cina, raffigurante anche la Corea e l'isola di Taiwan. La carta deriva da quella del Martini ed appare per la prima volta nel atlante di Johannes Janssonius, Atlas Novus, nel 1658. Le edizioni successive non sono comuni; la lastra fu acquistata da Valk & Schenk nel 1694 e il loro indirizzo appare sotto la battaglia navale in basso nelle edizioni tarde. Incisione in rame, coloritura coeva, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Decorative map of China, with ornate cartouches for the title and scale, depicting Korea and the Island of Taiwan. The subject derives from Martini's woek; Van Loon's map first appeared in Jansson's 'Atlas Novus' in 1658, and late as a late addition to the atlas is relatively uncommon. The plate was also issued by Schenk & Valk from the 1690s, with their names added under the vignette sea battle. Copper engraving, contemporary colour, in excellent condition.

Johannes JANSSONIUS (1588 - 1664)
1658. Per la prima volta pubblicata nel Atlas Novus del 1644, la carta di Giappone e Corea del Janssonius venne aggiornata nella nuova edizione, implementata da numerose mappe, del 1657. Egli colse l'opportunità di apportare alcune modifiche, basate sulle nuove esplorazioni di Maarten Vries del 1643. La forma del Giappone pertanto mutò, riducendo la larghezza dell'isola, nuovi toponimi furono inseriti e diversamente posizionati. Tuttavia sono presenti molti errori di collocazione geografica; clamorosa la descrizione di Iedo (erroneamente denominata Iede), molto a Nord. Il nostro esemplare, privo del testo al verso, deriva probabilmente da un atlante composito edito dagli eredi di Janssonius verso il 1680. Dal 1694 la lastra fu acquistata da Valck & Schenk, che sostituirono l'indirizzo di Janssonius con il loro. Incisione in rame, magnifica coloritura coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Bibliografia: Walter, Japan a Cartographic vision, p. 193, 57. Cortazzi p. 70. Dimensioni 550x455. Showing Japan and part of China. First published in 1644 in Janssonius' Novus Atlas. From 1657 Janssonius (Jan Jansen) supplemented the folio - edition of his atlas with several maps. He took the opportunity to enlarge the scale of this new map of Japan. Older maps depicted Ezo much larger than it is after Vries, in 1643, mistook Kunashiri and Urup to be parts of Ezo. This map shows Urup, which Vries called Compagnijs Landt, to be much larger than it was depicted before. Jansonius used the additional space to enlarge the scale and add placenames. However, he made many mistakes in the placen … [Click Below for Full Description]

Kenelm Digby (1603 - 1665) scienziato eccentrico, filosofo, cortigiano, corsaro, fu celebre per i suoi scritti relativi alla cosiddetta polvere simpatica, che applicata su un pezzo di benda che fosse venuto a contatto con una ferita, avrebbe causato dolore alla persona malata, ovunque essa si trovasse.

Austen, Ralph
Oxford: By Hall, 1658. First edition. [8], 46, [2] pp. Small 4to. Modern quarter morocco over buckram, spine gilt, small closed tear to title-page not affecting text. First edition. [8], 46, [2] pp. Small 4to. Both a religious radical and a gardner, Austen "was a practical nurseryman who greatly increased the range and output of gardens in the Oxford area; he was a radical puritan, rejoicing in the overthrow of the Anglican establishment; and he was a self-taught scientist, who regarded horticulture and fruit-growing as the key to establishing the kingdom of heaven on earth ... Austen's approach to horticulture was innovative, experimental, and sceptical of the authority of theorists" (ODNB). In this pamphlet he even takes on Sir Francis Bacon, so eminent a figure that Austen acknowledges his audacity in the preface. Wing A4234; ESTC 13917

Opitz, Martin.
Frankfurt/M., Klein, 1658. - Erste wesentlich erweiterte kommentierte Ausgabe der 'Poeterey' durch den Leipziger Theologen und späteren Rochlitzer Superintendenten Enoch Hanmann (Hahnemann, gest. 1680); die erste war in geringerem Umfang 1645 erschienen und danach noch einmal 1650 unverändert aufgelegt worden. Zuerst erschien Opitz' bahnbrechende Poetik 1624 in Breslau. "Zunächst zögernd akzeptiert, setzte sich O's kleine Schrift dank ihrer Klarheit und Kürze allmählich durch und erlebte, allerdings erst nach einer Pause von 10 Jahren, zahlreiche Neuauflagen" (Dünnhaupt). Dieses "Grundbuch der deutschen Verskunst . brachte bei seinem Erscheinen mit einem Schlage Klarheit in das bis dahin verworrene Gewoge von Versuchen, Anläufen, unsicherem Tasten . Somit ist sein Lehrbuch eines der folgenschwersten Bücher der deutschen, ja der allgemeinen Geistesgeschichte" (Wolfskehl). Diese Hanmann'sche Ausgabe enthält historische Exkurse und ist auch durch poetische Beispiele wesentlich ergänzt. In dieser Auflage übersteigt Hanmanns Kommentar den Text Opitz' um das Doppelte. – Gebräunt wie fast immer. Gutes Exemplar. – VD17 39:142289N; Dünnhaupt 71.12; Goed. III 20, 1k; Faber du Faur 231; Szyrocki 267.

Seneca, Lucius Annaeus / Thott, Birgitta (transl.)
Sorø, Georg Hantsch, 1658. Folio (30 x 19 cm). (40), 183, (1) pp. (2), 324 pp. 374, (2) pp. With added engraved title-page and folding engraved frontispiece portrait of the author (36 x 24 cm to platemarks). Bound in near-contemporary calf with elaborately gilt spine; all edges marbled in blue. Very rare sole edition of this monument of Early Modern feminism, the chef d'oeuvre of the female prodigy Birgitta Thott. Thott's impetus for this voluminous translation (of nearly 900 pages) was to make the Roman author's moralizing philosophy available to women, who as a rule could read only in the vernacular; her broader aim, as outlined in her preface, was to encourage women to educate and improve themselves through equal access to knowledge. - The present project - "The works of Seneca... about Morality and a Decent Life" - was Thott's first foray into Latin translation, reflecting a long-standing interest in the teachings of the Stoic philosopher. "In her preface, dedicated to women, she agitates for women's rights to study and to have access to knowledge. She points out that all the literature that helps anyone to become a better person is written in Latin, putting it outside the scope of the majority of women. For this reason she translates such a morally instructive author as Seneca" (Churchill et al., p. 277). Thott also takes pains to point out Seneca's own warm feelings towards female education, as a further encouragement for modern readers. "This preface represents the earliest example of Danish feminism in print" (DLB). - "Thott is considered by many to be the most lear … [Click Below for Full Description]
