Sanderson, William
London: printed for Humphrey Moseley, Richard Tomlins, and George Sawbridge, 1658. First edition. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Charles I by Faithorne, and engraved portrait of Sanderson. [12], 408, [24], 409-1149, [15] pp. 4to. With contemporary marginal annotations on the front flyleaf, as well as on several pages in the text. "An important example of the early attempts by royalists to manage the memory of the martyred king, and therefore a significant work in the development of later seventeenth-century history writing, which was notably more controversial, even polemical, than that of the pre-civil war decades" (ONDB). ESTC R5305. Contemporary mottled calf, rebacked, front and rear covers bearing the gilt monogram of Charles II, surmounted by a gilt crown; a note in a later hand suggests the book came from the Rudhall Library in Gloucestershire; later bookplate on front pastedown. Very good, sound copy.

Londini - R Danielis, 1658 Book. VERY GOOD INDEED. Hardcover. First edition.. An important collection of posthumously published essays by Sir Francis Bacon. The first edition and the first publication of this work. Entirely in the original Latin. This work has been collated using the online copy available from Harvard University Libraries and is complete. Gibson 230a, First edition, first issue with the publisher's imprint being 'R Danielis'. This edition has the comma to line 8 of the title which Gibson only notes as being a variant for the second issue. However,it would appear that the first issue has this comma also. This workcomprises ofseveral previously unpublished writings including a biography on Bacon by the editor William Rawley. The editor of this work, William Rawley, was Sir Francis Bacon'schaplain and literary executor. He preservedand oversaw the posthumous publication of many of Bacon's works. Rawley worked with many associates topreserve Bacon's memorythrough these posthumous publications. Several essaysto this work include'Historia Densi & Kari', 'Topica Inquisitionis de Luce & Lumine', 'Imago Civilis Julii Caesaris', 'Imago Civilis Augusi Caesaris' as well as several more.

Paris, Augustin Courbé, 1658. Petit in-4 de (3) ff., 244 pp., (10) de tables et privilège, vélin ivoire, titre manuscrit à l'encre brune au dos, tranches nues (reliure de l'époque). Édition originale du "Grand ?uvre" de Balzac. Frontispice gravé par Grégoire Huret (1606-1670) : Minerve dans un habit fleurdelysé, tenant d'une main une lance et un rameau d'olivier, appuyée sur un écu aux armes de Suède, le pied sur la tête de la Gorgone. Vignette de titre gravée. Paru quatre ans après la mort de Balzac, Aristippe représente le travail de toute une vie, tant sur le plan formel, dans la maîtrise de la langue, que du fond, avec les idées politiques et la philosophie du pouvoir développée. Le succès de cet ouvrage contribua à la gloire posthume de l'auteur. "Son Aristippe est sans doute ce qu'il a fait de plus beau" (Chapelain à N. Heinsius, 1657). En 1631, la publication du Prince, bien peu conforme aux attentes de son puissant commanditaire, Richelieu, avait entraîné avec le cardinal ministre, une rupture que la réédition, fort peu corrigée, de 1634 ne chercha pas véritablement à réparer. C'est donc avec tout son esprit d'indépendance que Balzac entreprend cette réflexion - sur un mode augustinien - sur les m?urs de la Cour, cherchant le moyen de concilier devoir et politique, et n'hésitant pas à dénoncer les vices des Grands avec la plus grande liberté. Devant l'opposition du "tyran" Richelieu, Balzac conserve ce projet dans ses portefeuilles jusqu'en 1644. Prétendant à nouveau jouer un rôle politique après la mort de "l'homme rouge", Balzac envisage de dédier son ouvrage, sou … [Click Below for Full Description]

Leg. inglese dell'epoca piena pelle. Filetti e fregi a secco impressi sui piatti. Dorso con titolo su tassello. Parte alta di una cerniera ottimamente accomodata.

Pubblicati per la prima volta a Parigi nel 1644 questi "Due trattati" mostrano una combinazione tra l'Aristotelismo e l'Atomismo. Vengono trattati argomenti quali l'identificazione cartesiana di spazio e materia, la teoria della caduta dei gravi di Galileo, le esperienze con i magneti, la luce, la gravità, sul pensiero e la conoscenza. 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.

Andreas a Sancta Theresia (et alii)
1658. 18 opere religioso-devozionali tedesche impresse prevalentemente a Monaco di Baviera fra il 1658 e il 1667 in un volume in-4° antico (200x157mm) in attraente legatura monastica coeva in piena pelle di scrofa su assi di legno con cornici plurime di filetti e ricchissime ornamentazioni a secco ai piatti. Dorso a 4 nervi rilevati con titolo anticamente manoscritto. Conservati i fermagli originali in pelle di scrofa e metallo. Tale tipologia di legatura ebbe estesissimo impiego nell'area tedesca durante i secoli XVI, XVII e XVIII, venendo prediletta per la sua solidità e perché essa ben si prestava alla fitta decorazione a secco tipica delle legature della Germania. Tutte le opere adunate nella miscellanea sono in carattere gotico e presentano talora il titolo entro una bordura ornamentale xilografica, nonché testatine o finalini ornati o istoriati xilograficamente. Usuali bruniture e fioriture dovute al tipo di carta, aloni leggeri ad alcuni ff., ma bello stato conservativo nell'insieme. Ex-libris figurato di Jakob Klatzkin (Kartoz-Brioza / Kartusskaya Berëza, attuale Bielorussia, 1882-Vevey, Svizzera, 1948), noto filosofo e pubblicista ebreo di tendenze sioniste, traduttore tra l'altro di Spinoza in ebraico; Klatzkin si segnalò per una radicale rilettura dell'ebraismo che negava ogni significato all'idea del popolo eletto e caldeggiava il ritorno degli ebrei nella terra degli antenati senza alcun cedimento allo sciovinismo. Comprende: 1) Opera religiosa di Andreas a Sancta Theresia (Andrea da Santa Teresa), carmelitano scalzo tedesco spentosi nel 1682, non identificata … [Click Below for Full Description]

Coloniæ, Apud Nicolaum Schouten (Leiden, Jean Elzevier), 1658. (32), 608 pp. 8vo. Contemporary overlapping vellum, handwritten title to spine. Willems 829; Brunet, iv, 396; Tchemerzine-Scheler, v, p. 69; Peignot, Livres Condamnés, ii, 27; En Français dans le Texte 96; PMM 140 (both for the original edition). First Latin edition of the famous Lettres Provinciales, translated by Pierre Nicole (and with additions (p. 510-608) by Pierre Nicole (as "Willem Wendrockius" and as "Paulus Irenaeus")), published under the pseudonym Wilhelm Wendrock, a few months after the original French edition and just as that edition forbidden (by the Conseil d'État on September 23, 1660) and burnt. The book was printed by Jean Elzevier "pour le compte de ses parents d'Amsterdam" who had very good relations with the jansenists and were about to publish the first collective edition of the Provinciales (see Willems). Born in 1623, Pascal came under Jansenist influence in 1646. 'In 1654, after a period of discouragement and repeated meditations, he underwent a mystical experience which effected his definite conversion to a religious life ..... He now, in 1655, took up his residence in Port Royal ..... Attacks by the Jesuits on the Jansenist cause and on Antoine Arnauld led to the publication in 1656-7 of eighteen Lettres de Louis de Montalte à un Provincial de ses amis et aux RR. PP.

". "Erste Ausgabe. ? Politische Satire über die Schweiz in dem damals beliebten Stil der Sprachmengerei zwischen Deutsch und Latein. "Heutelia" ist ein Anagramm aus Heluetia. Sie erscheint in Form einer Reisebeschreibung, "in welcher die staatlichen und gesellschaftlichen Zustände einzelner Kantone von schroff aristokratischem Standpunkt aus bloßgelegt werden. Zur Sprache kommt die feile Justiz, die Aemtersucht, die Habgier und Bestechlichkeit der Landvögte und Jurisdiktionsherren, der Luxus der Städter, die Notlage der sogenannten Untertanenländer, die geistige Trägheit und Versumpfung der Bürger, die schlechte Jugenderziehung, die unduldsame, dogmensüchtige Geistlichkeit beider Konfessionen, der Aberglaube, die Hexenprozesse. Der Verfasser der Heutelia`, deren hauptsächlicher Reiz in dem ergötzlichen, mitunter pikanten Detail besteht, verrät, außer dem scharfen Auge für die gebrechlichen Einrichtungen der damaligen Schweiz und dem guten Humor, gründliche klassische Bildung, weitschichtige Belesenheit, eindringende Kenntnis politischer, juristischer und religiöser Fragen, daneben ein offener Kopf und eine tüchtige Gesinnung. Seiner Zeit eilt er kühn voran ." (Baechtold. Geschichte der Deutschen Literatur in der Schweiz. S. 473.)

BALZAC, Jean-Louis Guez de;
Paris, Augustin Courbé, 1658 Petit in-4 de (3) ff., 244 pp., (10) de tables et privilège, vélin ivoire, titre manuscrit à l'encre brune au dos, tranches nues (reliure de l'époque). Édition originale du "Grand Œuvre" de Balzac.Frontispice gravé par Grégoire Huret (1606-1670) : Minerve dans un habit fleurdelysé, tenant d'une main une lance et un rameau d'olivier, appuyée sur un écu aux armes de Suède, le pied sur la tête de la Gorgone. Vignette de titre gravée. Paru quatre ans après la mort de Balzac, Aristippe représente le travail de toute une vie, tant sur le plan formel, dans la maîtrise de la langue, que du fond, avec les idées politiques et la philosophie du pouvoir développée. Le succès de cet ouvrage contribua à la gloire posthume de l'auteur. "Son Aristippe est sans doute ce qu'il a fait de plus beau" (Chapelain à N. Heinsius, 1657). En 1631, la publication du Prince, bien peu conforme aux attentes de son puissant commanditaire, Richelieu, avait entraîné avec le cardinal ministre, une rupture que la réédition, fort peu corrigée, de 1634 ne chercha pas véritablement à réparer. C'est donc avec tout son esprit d'indépendance que Balzac entreprend cette réflexion - sur un mode augustinien - sur les mœurs de la Cour, cherchant le moyen de concilier devoir et politique, et n'hésitant pas à dénoncer les vices des Grands avec la plus grande liberté. Devant l'opposition du "tyran" Richelieu, Balzac conserve ce projet dans ses portefeuilles jusqu'en 1644. Prétendant à nouveau jouer un rôle politique après la mort de "l'homme rouge", Balzac envisage de dédier son ouvrage, so … [Click Below for Full Description]

(HAUTNORTTON IOSAPHAT FRIDERICUS).
AMSTERDAM, APUD HENRICUM BETKIUM, 1658. In-12°; 212 pp.; legatura coeva in tutta pergamena, titolo manoscritto al dorso, firma e data di possesso in parte cancellate al margine bianco del titolo. Lievi bruniture e qualche pertinente nota d'antica mano. Rara prima edizione latina, in parte originale rispetto a quella tedesca del 1657. Ferguson spende una lunga nota nell'individuare l'autore che si cela dietro lo pseudonimo Hautnortton, ipotizzando che si tratti del giurista Johann Harprecht. Questo trattato alchemico condensa in un volumetto di piccolo formato una guida per raggiungere il "Sale dei Filosofi", vale a dire la capacità di decifrazione della realtà stessa, attraverso l'individuazione dei processi alchemici che ci circondano e che sono legati alle pietre, agli astri, ai fluidi, ai quattro elementi. Ferguson I, 368 e ss. Krivatsy 5265. Caillet 6831.
