        Le Maistre d'Hostel qui apprend l'ordre de bien servir sur table & d'y ranger les services.

      Paris: Pierre David. 1659. 8vo. Later full mottled calf binding, spine with gilt raised bands, gilt tools and lettering, speckled edges; pp [xiv] + 145 + [i] + [13, index]; faint dampstain affecting lower quarter of last few leaves, otherwise very clean, very good. First edition. Very rare; auction records show only that one copy has appeared twice on the market in the last ten years. Though the author is unknown Simon has suggested that the book was written by the dedicatee Pierre de Lune, the 'escuyer de cuisine' of the Duc de Rohan. This is an early and very influential guide to the correct arrangement and service of banquets and formal dinners, including recipes for numerous elaborate sweets, many of which were approporiated by subsequent authors. The book also deals with the delicate art of folding napkins into fantastic shapes. This book is an artefact of the reign of Louis XIV, the Sun King, when dining became an art to be celebrated alongside the other cultural accomplishments of the period. It was one of four books, alongside de Lavarenne's Cuisinier Francois (1751), Kobert's L'Art de Bien Traiter (1674) and Pierre David's Le Cuisinier' (1676), that formed the foundation of French culinary art.

Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris. Collijn sp. 592. Samlingsutgåva av Strängnäsbiskopen Johannes Matthiæs teologiska småskrifter som även innehåller sonen Johan Oljeqvists lilla historik över Karl X Gustav, med eget titelblad. Den sistnämnda utkom även separat samma år. Johan (Johannes) Matthiae (1593-1670) blev biskop i Strängnäs 1643 men är annars mest känd som drottning Kristinas lärare. Som teolog var han omstridd i det ortodoxa Sverige, med ekumeniska åsikter påverkad av Comenius, med följd att han 1664 fick avgå som biskop. Denna samling innehåller bl.a. hans pedagogiska studieordning ?Libellus puerilis? (1626), hans redogörelse för Kristinas undervisning ?Institutio religionis christianae ?(1642) och hans ?Regula credendi et vivendi? (1656), där han försvarar sig mot anklagelsen att vara orsak till Kristinas avfall, liksom hans utgåva av de böhmiska brödemas etiskt-religiösa ekumeniska kyrkoordning, ?Idea boni ordinis? (1644). Hans barn adlades Oljeqvist 1645 för hans förtjänsters skull. Om sonen Johan vet vi inte mycket. Han studerade i Uppsala 1653 och verkade som canonicus i Hamburg 1658 och levde åtminstone fortfarande 1667.

        Otto Keyens kurtzer Entwurff von Neu-Niederland und Guajana einander entgegen gesetzt, umb ... zu weisen welche von beyden am füglichsten zu bewohnen, am behendesten an zu bauen und den besten Nutzen geben mögen.Leipzig, Ritsch, 1672. 4to. Modern green morocco.

      Asher 12; JFB K-37; Muller, Americana 1083; Sabin 37675. First German edition, translated by Thomas Ritsch, of a comparison of what had been two Dutch colonial regions: the New Netherlands (now the eastern United States from Delaware to Rhode Island) and the Dutch parts of the Guianas (now Guyana and Surinam). "The author acknowledges that New Netherland is much preferable to the Netherlands; that one can more easily obtain large and independent possessions" but having "an interest in the colony of Guyana, to which he was attached as an officer, he attempts to show how much Guyana is superior to New Netherland," by setting forth the advantages of the climate, the soil, and general conditions of the warmer country.When Keye first published his work in Dutch in 1659, both regions were under Dutch colonial control, but in 1664 the British took New Amsterdam and renamed it New York, gaining control over what had been The New Netherlands. The 1667 Treatry of Breda formally accepted the existing situation: Dutch control of most of the Guianas and English control of the New Netherlands. Although not explicitly acknowledged, the present German translation may have been published to convince prospective German emigrants to choose the Dutch Guianas over the British colonies in North America. In good condition.

(20), 7-64 pp; 48 pp.; 111 pp.; 22, (2) pp. bianche; 61, (3) pp., 64 pp. Glauber (1604-1670) fu un vero precursore della chimica moderna. Quantunque non avesse avuto un'educazione formale, egli viaggiò intensamente incontrando filosofi, alchimisti e farmacisti, in Germania, Austria e Paesi Bassi, dove finalmente si stabilì, ad Amsterdam. Qui, in un periodo di circa 40 anni, scrisse oltre trenta opere, che rappresentano solo in piccola parte, le sue scoperte e le sue sperimentazioni. Glauber fu influenzato dalla tradizione metallurgica, molto più di altri suoi contemporanei, ma fu l'alchimia a determinare i suoi obiettivi e la sua personale percezione di questo lavoro. Assiduo sperimentatore ed inventore di successo, gli viene attribuita l'invenzione di apparecchiature d'avanguardia, e una moderna concezione dell'importanza degli acidi minerali come reagenti chimici. In queste opere egli si occupa della trasformazione "universale" e "particolare, la prima effettuata per mezzo della pietra filosofale, la seconda con l'uso dei sali, nella quale era ritenuto un maestro.

        Les Mémoires de Messire Michel de Castelnau, Seigneur de Mauvissière. Illustrés et augmentés de plusieurs commentaires et manuscrits, tant Lettres, Instructions, Traittez, qu'autres pieces secrettes et originales servants à donner la vérité de l'Histoire des règnes de François II, Charles IX et Henri III, et de la régence et du gouvernement de Catherine de Médicis. Avec les éloges des rois, reines, princes et autres personnages illustres de l'une et l'autre religion sous ces trois règnes, et l'histoire généalogique de la maison de Castelnau, par J. Le Laboureur.

      Pierre Lamy, Paris 1659 - 2 vol. in-folio de (24)-907 pp. 81-(1) pp. mal chiffrées (12) pp. de table, 2 portraits gravés ; (2)-909 pp. (2)-125 pp. (12) pp. de table, 1 portrait gravé, veau fauve glacé, dos orné à nerfs, pièce de titre en maroquin vert, triple filet doré d'encadrement sur les plats, macle et poissons couronnés en écoinçons, armes sur les plats, tranches dorées (relié vers 1720). Première édition commentée avec des pièces justificatives par Jean Le Laboureur enrichie des généalogies de la Maison Castelnau que ne contenait pas l'édition originale de 1621 publiée par Jacques de Castelnau, fils de Michel. Portraits hors texte de Jacques et Michel de Castelnau (ce dernier répété), vignette de titre gravée et plus de 300 blasons gravés en taille-douce dans le texte : au tome I, Histoire généalogique de la Maison de Castelnau, au tome II Généalogies de plusieurs maisons alliées à celle de Castelnau. Après avoir pris part aux négociations de 1559, Michel de Catselnau (1520-1592) fut envoyé en Ecosse, en Allemagne et en Angleterre où il fut ambassadeur de 1575 à 1585 ; il participa aux événements survenus entre 1559 et 1570 ceux-là mêmes qu'il consigna dans ses mémoires pour l'instruction de son fils, sans idée de publication. « Le rôle joué par l'auteur, ses relations avec les principaux personnages, enfin sa réelle modération donnent à ses jugements une certaine force. » (Hauser). Exemplaire réglé à grandes marges, aux armes du comte Charles-Henri d'Hoym, ambassadeur en France d'Auguste II, électeur de Saxe et roi de Pologne, et aux fers de la maison Rohan-Chabot (macle et chabot couronnés en écoinçons). La réunion de ces deux provenances sur une même reliure est inconnue à Olivier-Hermal-Roton. « Le comte d'Hoym fut l'un des bibliophiles les plus célèbres, qui forma avec passion de 1717 à 1735, une collection riche et surtout en lettres et en histoire. Il faisait relier ses volumes par Boyet en veau fauve ou en maroquin, avec ses armes sur les plats et l'aigle de Pologne au dos ». Inscription manuscrite latine très pâle à l'encre du temps dans la marge inférieure de la page de titre (tome 1). Ex-libris "M. de Kernier". Bel exemplaire. Restaurations discrètes, étiquettes anciennes contrecollées en pied de dos, petits cernes clairs sur les plats, petites épidermures sur le tome 2. Catalogue de la bibliothèque du comte d'Hoym (1738), n°355 ; Brunet I, 1626 ; Saffroy III, 37982 ; Hauser III, 1421 ; Olivier-Hermal-Roton, planche 672 et planche 2034-9.

        1659 1st ed Greek Poetry Theognis Phocylides Mathematics Pythagoras Solon Law

      Ultrajecti, Ex Officina Hermanni Ribbii, 1659. - 1659 1st ed Greek Poetry Theognis Phocylides Mathematics Pythagoras Solon Law A very rare collection of the Greek poetry and works of Theognis and Phocylides, ideas and thoughts of Pythagoras, and the mottos of Solon. Theognis of Megara was a Greek lyric poet active in approximately the sixth century BC. The work attributed to him consists of gnomic poetry quite typical of the time, featuring ethical maxims and practical advice about life. Phocylides (b. 560BC) was a Greek gnomic poet of Miletus, and a contemporary of Theognis of Megara. Pythagoras of Samos (c. 570 – c. 495 BC) was an Ionian Greek philosopher, mathematician, and the putative founder of the movement called Pythagoreanism. Solon (c. 638 – c. 558 BC) was an Athenian statesman, lawmaker, and poet. He is remembered particularly for his efforts to legislate against political, economic, and moral decline in archaic Athens.
