        Rélation Véritable de ce qui s'est Passé au Royaume de Sophie, depuis les Troubles excitez par la Rhetorique et l'Eloquence. Avec un Discours sur la Nouvelle Allegorique.

      Paris: Charles de Sercy, 1659. Duodecimo, contemporary speckled calf, spine gilt between raised bands. Very scarce: first edition of this description and history of an imagined kingdom, an allegorical satire on French court and society.Sorel (1597-1674) novelist and historian, wrote a vast array of works, many issued anonymously or pseudonymously: he 'professa toute sa vie pour les lettres une ardeur indefatigable' (NBG). This tremendous output has made a complete bibliography of his works a difficult undertaking, but even a brief overview shows his astonishing diversity: satires, histories, fables, etc. The Rélation Véritable is a satire on French mores, followed by Sorel's Discours sur la Nouvelle Allégorique, an approving comparison of Sorel's invented kingdom of Sophie and Antoine Furetière's earlier Nouvelle Allégorique, ou Histoire des derniers troubles arrivez au royaume de l'eloquence. Slightly browned but a very good copy.

        Historical collections of private passages of state, weighty matters in law, remarkable proceedings in five parliaments. Beginning the sixteenth year of King James, anno 1618. and ending ... [with the death of King Charles the First, 1648] ...

      Rushworth (1612?-90), a partisan of Cromwell and Parliament, compiled one of the most famous and still sought-after assemblages of documents on the history of England during the early Stuart period and the Civil War era. Biased though it be, the work is a major source for historians, both amateur and professional, and for students of English law.For the latter, in addition to the obvious parliamentary proceedings, there is the noteworthy inclusion at the end of vol. III of the "Star Chamber Reports" that compose the appendix, and the devotion of all of vol. VIII to the trial of Thomas, Earl of Stratford; the set in hand has the issue of vol. I having no map but two plates, both present. As our caption notes, this vast repository purports to have been made as "a bare narrative" of its "fact[s]"; but it now resonates with a richness far beyond mere chronicle.=> It repays both extended and "dip-in" reading for pleasure.

         Remarques sur la langue françoise utiles à ceux qui veulent bien parler & bien escrire

      Paris, chez Augustin Courbé, 1659, in 8°, de 26ff. dont le dernier bl. 716pp. 16ff. de table, pl. vélin souple époque, titre à la plume, qq. ff. très lég. brunis sinon bel exemplaire. Rare 6e édition du célèbre traité de Vaugelas, dont l'influence fut considérable. Il chercha à définir et à codifier le bon usage du français en s'inspirant de la langue parlée à la cour du roi, dans la lignée de Malherbe. Ainsi il distinguait l'usage de la Cour et du grand monde de l'usage populaire. Vaugelas a résumé les qualités essentielles de notre langue : " Il n'y a jamais eu de langue où l'on ait parlé plus purement et plus nettement qu'en la nôtre, qui soit plus ennemie des équivoques et de toutes sortes d'obscurités, plus grave et plus douce tout ensemble, plus propre pour toute sorte de style, plus chaste en ses locutions, plus judicieuse en ses figures, qui aime plus l'élégance et l'ornement, mais qui craigne plus l'affectation... Elle sait tempérer ses hardiesses avec la pudeur et la retenue qu'il faut avoir pour ne pas donner dans les figures monstrueuses où donnent aujourd'hui nos voisins... Il n'y en a point qui observe plus le nombre et la cadence que la nôtre, en quoi consiste la véritable marque de la perfection des langues ". L'autorité de Vaugelas en matière de langue française a subsisté durant tout le XVIIe siècle. ¶ En Français dans le Texte n° 93 "Le livre définissait une norme aristocratique que les contemporains s'efforcèrent de respecter en parlant Vaugelas, selon l'expression de Molière" - Tchemerzine-Scheler V, 948 (n'a pas vu cette édition, et se trompe à propos de l'édition de 1663 qualifiée de 2e édition) .

        Recherches sur la nature du feu de l'enfer et du lieu où il est situé.Amsterdam, 1757. With 2 folding engraved plates. 19th-century vellum.

      - Caillet 10495; STCN 297970747. Third edition of the French translation of a work on hell by the English clergyman Tobias Swinden (1659-1719). Besides the punishments one can expect in hell, it mostly deals with the location of hell. Stating that the fire in hell isn't a metaphor, but real fire, and that the fire was eternal, Swinden places the hell in the sun. He includes different opinions on the placement of hell, refuting the idea of fire (and hell) being inside of the earth. He also tries to reconcile science and religion, referring to Copernicus and Tycho Brahe, and agreeing that the sun, and not the earth, is the center of the universe and not the earth. In spite of the scholarly approach of the work, it became rather popular and appeared in various editions and translations.With two bookplates on paste-down. Title-page slightly soiled, margins slightly browned throughout and with a few small spots. Binding only slightly soiled. Overall in very good condition.

      London: Printed by J. G. for R. Royston at the Angel in Ivie-lane, 1659. First edition. Hardcover. Good+. Small folio (11 x 7 inches), [12], 23, [22], 24-711 pp., (pagination includes the engraved allegorical title-page); vignette engraving on text title-page, folding engraved emblem plate titled "Tree of the Church." Contemporary full calf, gilt spine title. Covers rubbed and scuffed with corner tips exposed, lacking rear free endpaper, but still sturdy and presentable and internally fine, entirely free of foxing, stains, tears, etc. Bookplate of Harold Greenhill, a Chicago book collector of some note to front fixed endpaper. Very old (contemporary?) ink stamped ex-libris "Sheppard" below a crudely drawn sheep framed in laurel branches on front free endpaper. John Gauden (1605-1662) at time of publication of this volume was Dean of Bocking (in Essex), the following year he was appointed Bishop of Exeter and 2 years later made Bishop of Worcester. During the English Civil War he sided with the Parliamentary Party, though he did not support the execution of Charles I in 1649. He is best remembered for his claim to authorship of the Eikon Basilike (in Greek) The Pourtrature of His Sacred Majestie in His Solitudes and Sufferings, a work attributed to Charles I and published just days after his execution. The question of authorship has never been solved and Gauden remains in the running.

The "first comprehensive Anglo-Saxon dictionary whose appearance in 1659 ...mark[ed] the beginning of a new epoch in the study of English philology ... The man who was, more than all others, responsible for the inauguration of the new epoch [was] William Somner ... By the good will of other scholars much of the manuscript material which had already been collected (largely by Abraham Wheloc) came into his hands. But even so, great labour was required in a work of synthesis demanding such originality. Not until 1659 did there appear at last the Dictionarium Saxonico-Latinuo-Anglicum which is the most worthy memorial of the fine and self-effacing student who made it. ... His book opened a new path to the Old English philologist and at the same time it made his subject less esoteric. It initiated also a new period in the study of Anglo-Saxon history by supplying students of an instrument in which they had stood in sore need" (Douglas, English Scholars, chapt. 3).

        A rod for the lawyers: Who are hereby declared to be the grand robbers & deceivers of the nation; greedily devouring yearely many millions of the peoples money.

      London: Giles Calvert, 1659. 4to (18.2 cm, 7.2"). [4], 16 pp. First edition of this attack on professional lawyers and, on a larger scale, on general legal injustices as practiced by the ruling class against the commons. Cole, a self-professed lover of his country, added "a Word to the Parliament; and a Word to the Army" to this scathing diatribe against "this pestiferous Generation of the Lawyers [which] runs from City to Countrey, seeking whom they may devour" (p. [iii]).    Uncommon: ESTC and WorldCat locate only three U.S. institutional holdings of this edition. A variant, lacking publisher information, was printed in the same year; the present example bears three woodcut headpieces and one foliated capital.         ESTC R29637; Wing (rev. ed.) C5039A. Removed from a nonce volume, with early inked pagination added in upper outer corners. Final leaf with lower outer corner torn away, not nearing text; slim track of worming to lower inner leaf portions, not obscuring text and with unobtrusive translucent repairs to several instances. => A very nice copy of this uncommon polemic.

      A Rouen, chez François Vaultier, 1659. - in-8. 3ff. 506pp. Plein vélin souple du temps. Initialement paru en 1614, cet ouvrage réédité à plusieurs reprises à Rouen dans le courant du 17e siècle, constitue un jalon important dans l'histoire de la langue espagnole. "En la historiografía lingüística Ambrosio de Salazar es uno de los tratadistas menos conocidos e incluso peor tratados por la crítica; sin embargo, su obra Espexo General de Gramática., publicada en Rouen, 1615, ha sido sin duda la que más ha trascendido no tanto por su postura y planteamientos gramaticales sino por tratarse de un manual de enseñanza y aprendizaje de nuestra lengua a extranjeros, concretamente a franceses ( ). Los investigadores de la Historia de la Lingüística no han prestado atención a ciertos principios fundamentales que Ambrosio de Salazar va incluyendo a lo largo de los siete días de la semana que servirán de marco para su exposición, a modo de diálogo, mezclados con historias, anécdotas. de nuestra lengua ( ). Nos interesa, sobre todo, dar a conocer la transcendencia de la teoría de Ambrosio de Salazar, al contrastar sus reflexiones con las emitidas por otros tratadistas contemporáneos, consecuentemente podremos valorar su aportación en el ámbito de la historia de la lingüística; habida cuenta que algunos de estos conceptos se han olvidado durante el desarrollo histórico de nuestra disciplina para resurgir en la actualidad configurándose como pilares sobre los que se asientan varios de los fundamentos de la lingüística general contemporánea" (Hernández et López). Auteur de plusieurs ouvrages en espagnol imprimés en France, Ambrosio de Salazar, historien, linguiste et grammairien originaire de Murcia, résidait à Rouen où il enseignait l'espagnol. Il fut notamment interprète à la Cour de Louis XIII et plusieurs études lui ont été consacrées depuis le début du 20e siècle, en particulier une biographie par Morel Fatio. La présente édition fut peut-être donnée en écho au Traité des Pyrénées signé la même année. Portrait de Louis XIV dans un médaillon gravé sur bois au verso du titre. Marques d'un brochage ancien dans la marge du fond. Bon exemplaire. Cf.

        De Maximis et Minimis Geometrica Divinatio in Quintum Conicorum Apollonii Pergaei

      - Two full-page engraved plates on one double-page sheet, two woodcut plates, & numerous woodcut diagrams in the text. Woodcut of Medici arms on titles which are printed in red & black. Two parts in one vol. 8 p.l., 154 pp.; 2 p.l., 154 pp., one leaf of errata. Folio, cont. vellum over boards (a bit of foxing). Florence: J. Cocchini, 1659. First edition and a splendid copy of the author's first book in which Viviani attempted a reconstruction of the important fifth book of Apollonius' Conics, a text at that time lost. The Conics was in eight books, but only the first four have come down to us in the original Greek. There was some knowledge of the fifth book due to hints supplied by other Greek mathematicians and it was this information which Viviani used. While Viviani was working on his reconstruction of the fifth book, Borelli discovered in an Arabic manuscript in the Medicean Library the text of books five through seven (book eight is lost). These were then translated into Latin by Borelli and Ecchellensis and were published in 1661. The similarity between Viviani's reconstruction and the actual text was very great. It is Book V which has particularly evoked the admiration of modern mathematicians. It "reveals better than any other the giant intellect of its author. Difficult questions of maxima and minima?are here treated exhaustively?Here are also found the germs of the subject of evolutes and centres of osculation."-Cajori, History of Mathematics, pp. 40-41-(on Apollonius). In this book, Viviani also "published his results on what is now called the Steiner problem (although the designation Fermat problem would be more appropriate) as an appendix to his celebrated reconstruction of the fifth book of Apollonius's Conic Sections where the ancient author treated maximum and minimum problems related to conic sections."-Hildebrant & Tromba, The Parsimonious Universe, p. 92. Viviani (1622-1703), a disciple and biographer of Galileo, established his reputation with this work. Fine, crisp, and large copy with half-title. Preserved in a box. ? Cinti 135.

        A rod for the lawyers: Who are hereby declared to be the grand robbers & deceivers of the nation; greedily devouring yearely many millions of the peoples money.

      London: Giles Calvert 4to (18.2 cm, 7.2"). [4], 16 pp.. 1659 First edition of this attack on professional lawyers and, on a larger scale, on general legal injustices as practiced by the ruling class against the commons. Cole, a self-professed lover of his country, added "a Word to the Parliament; and a Word to the Army" to this scathing diatribe against "this pestiferous Generation of the Lawyers [which] runs from City to Countrey, seeking whom they may devour" (p. [iii]). Uncommon: ESTC and WorldCat locate only three U.S. institutional holdings of this edition. A variant, lacking publisher information, was printed in the same year; the present example bears three woodcut headpieces and one foliated capital. Removed from a nonce volume, with early inked pagination added in upper outer corners. Final leaf with lower outer corner torn away, not nearing text; slim track of worming to lower inner leaf portions, not obscuring text and with unobtrusive translucent repairs to several instances. => A very nice copy of this uncommon polemic.

      1659. Carta geografica tratta dal rarissimo "Orbis Augustinianus sive Conventuum Ordinis Eremitarum Sanctii Augustini Chorographica et Topographica Descriptio" edito forse a Bologna, sicuramente nel 1659. L'opera realizzata dal Lubin, è molto simile nella sua concezione, a quella realizzata dai Francescani nel 1649 e vuole rappresentare le province nelle quali è presente l'ordine degli Agostiniani, con l'ubicazione dei conventi. Molto rara. Incisione in rame. Taken from the rare "Orbis Augustinianus sive Conventuum Ordinis Eremitarum Sanctii Augustini Chorographica et Topographica Descriptio", printed very likely in Bologna in 1659.

      Four folding printed tables & numerous woodcut diagrams in the text. 6 p.l. (two of these preliminary leaves are mis-bound at end), 188 pp., 4 leaves of errata at end. Small 4to, attractive antique calf, panelled in gilt, gilt fleurons in each corner, spine gilt. Zurich: J.J. Bodmer, 1659. First edition and an absolutely complete copy of this rare and noteworthy mathematical book; our copy has all four folding printed tables (most copies described in OCLC seem to have only three) and an extra leaf of errata not present in the Macclesfield copy (sale, Sotheby's London, 25 Oct. 2005, lot 1705, £12,000 including premium). In this book on page 73, Rahn first introduced the symbol "÷" in print "as a sign of division; (2) the Archimedean spiral for involution; (3) the double epsilon for evolution; (4) the use of capital letters B, D, E, for given numbers, and small letters a, b, for unknown numbers; (5) the * for multiplication; (6) the first use of ∴ for 'therefore'; (7) the three-column arrangement of which the left column contains the directions, the middle the numbers of the lines, the right the results of the operations."-Cajori, A History of Mathematical Notations, I, pp. 211-12 & see illus. on p. 213 (& see sections 205, 208, 232, 237, 266, 304, 307, 328, 333, 341, 385, & 386 for Rahn's other contributions, all of which appear in the present book). We know that Leibniz looked upon Rahn's book favorably, describing it as "an elegant algebra." While Rahn's use of the modern division sign was not immediately adopted in Europe, in England it met a very favorable reception, with John Wallis and other English writers employing it. Rahn (1622-76), came from a prominent Zurich family and had a major role in the administration of his native city. About 1654, Rahn came to know John Pell (1611-85), then a representative of the Commonwealth at Zurich, and engaged the English mathematician as a tutor in 1657, meeting every Friday night. While some of the advances in notation in this book might have derived from Pell, "without further evidence, it is best to assume that there was joint responsibility for these innovations and that Pell's contemporary reputation as a mathematician, and particularly as an algebraist, was not unearned."-D.S.B., X, p. 495. Fine crisp copy. Old library stamp on title. ? Cajori, A History of Mathematics, p. 140. Smith, History of Mathematics, I, p. 412 & II, pp. 406, 411-12, 431n, & 474.

        Le Gouvernement de Rome. Où il est traité de la Religion, de la Iustice, de la Police et De tout ce qui s’y passe de remarquable durant le cours de l’Année. Seconde édition reveué et augmentée par l’Auteur

      chez Claude Le Blanc, 1659. 8vo (cm. 16,2), 22 cc.nn., 548 pp., 8 cc.nn. con fregi tipografici n.t. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena con titolo ms. al ds. Assente dalla leg. la carta di guardia anteriore, ma ottimo esemplare.Rossetti, 9046. L’Autore (1614-1687), dottore di teologia all’Università di Roma e Protonotario apostolico, fondò a Caen numerose istituzioni di pubblica utilità e fu eletto rettore dell’Università di quella città. Quest’opera si caratterizza per le sintetiche annotazioni compiute dall’A. sulla vita della Chiesa e sulla vita civile: giustizia, polizia, professioni, etc. Dal capitolo sul Catechismo, citiamo: ‘Il est recommandé de se servir du Cattéchisme romain, ou de celuy du Cardinal Bellarmin’. L’ultimo Capitolo sulle Cortigiane termina così:’ C’est une calomnie de nos adversaires de dire que les Papes reçoivent tribut des Courtisanes, car ils n’en reçoivent rien de tout’.
