        Ductor dubitantium, or the rule of conscience in all her generall measures; serving as a great instrument for the determination of cases of conscience

      London: Pr. by James Flesher for Richard Royston Folio (32 cm, 12.6"). 2 vols. I: Add. engr. t.-p., [6], xl, 559, [1] pp.; 1 plt. II: [2], 558, [2] pp.. 1660 First edition: Important philosophical treatise on conscience, casuistry, and Christian ethics, written by the Bishop of Down and Connor. The controversialist Taylor, crowned "the Shakespeare of divines" by Ralph Waldo Emerson, was the subject during his career of a number of accusations of crypto-popery, but the present work — the first of its kind — was designed as a "complete protestant answer to the many Roman Catholic manuals of casuistry" (according to the Oxford DNB online) and intended to provide an authoritative Anglican reference on the subject. The portrait of the author was engraved by Pierre Lombard, while the added engraved title-page is unsigned. Each of the four books here (in two volumes) has a separate title-page; the main title-pages are printed in black and ruled in red. The text is in English, Greek, and Latin. A printed addenda slip is affixed to the final text page of vol. II, above the catalogue of books sold by Richard Royston. Leaf L6 in vol. II is a cancel (and separated). Provenance: Vol. I added title-page recto with inked ownership inscription dated 1781 ("T. Moore"); vol. II front fly-leaf with inked ownership inscription dated 1696 ("Guilel. Rayner") and another (of "T. Moore's") dated 1781. Recent quarter calf and marbled paper?-covered sides, leather edges tooled in blind, spine with gilt-stamped title and volume labels and gilt-stamped decorations between raised bands. Ownership inscriptions as above. First few leaves of vol. I (including regular and added title-pages) with tiny spots of worming; slightly larger sections of same to inner margins of some subsequent leaves; a number of pages in both volumes with scattered spots of worming, touching letters but not affecting sense. Light waterstaining to outer margins of some leaves. One leaf in vol. II separated. => Significant and attractive.

        Causae Fluxus et Refluxus Maris, Ventorum, et Febris intermittentis.

      Parisiis, apud Joannem de la Caille, 1660. - in-16. 102pp. 2ff. Plein vélin souple. Edition Originale latine publiée simultanément avec une version française, parue chez le même imprimeur. Né en 1625 à Mortain (Manche), Jacques Le Royer, sieur de la Blinière, était un juriste normand passionné d'astrologie et de sciences occultes. Dans cet ouvrage curieux et très rare, il attribue le mouvement des marées aux seuls reflets de la lumière solaire sur la lune et sur d'autres planètes, qui selon lui n'exercent pas d'influence astrologique en tant que tels. L'auteur se donnait à lui-même le titre suivant: "Le Messager du Mouvement perpétuel et hydraulique, de la Quadrature du Cercle de la mesure de la Diagonale, par le costé du Quarré, des Longitudes, des Causes du Flux et du Reflux de la Mer, des Vents et de la fièvre intermittente". Précieux exemplaire portant un "ex dono" autographe de Henri-Louis Barrin de la Galissonière (mort en 1722), membre d'une célèbre famille de marins. Le destinataire de l'envoi n'est pas indiqué mais il s'agit peut-être du premier marin illustre de la famille, son frère aîné le futur amiral Rolland Barrin de la Galissonière. En 1662 (soit deux ans après la parution de ce volume) il entrait dans la compagnie des gardes-marine de Brest et cela pourrait être à cette époque-là que l'envoi ait été inscrit à son intention. Charmant exemplaire dans son vélin souple d'origine. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

(8) 121-184pp. (4) 185-230pp. (8) 231-288pp., relié. - First edition, published in initialisme and illustrated 66 wood-engraved plates (first book 7, second book: 17, third book: 16, the fourth book: 10 and last book: 16), several folding or double page. Title page in red and black. A banner of the time glued to the back of the title page. Contemporary binding in full golden calf. Back with five nerves decorated with ornate boxes, as well as a red morocco room and a small tail tag library. Double net gilded on the cuts. All red edges. Skilfully restored binding. Slightly stained title page and a pale wetting reaching the margin of three layers in low margin at the beginning of the volume. Some boards have been strengthened on the back with strips of paper, some have tiny tears without missing. For, as stated in the title, "all people who stay in the country", the book "curious and Recreation" written by a monk of the Abbey of Grandmont is somehow a perfect manual scavenger abundantly illustrated . The book is divided into five parts: the first concerns the making of nets to catch the "birds, beasts and fishes"; the second focuses on taking "no passengers birds" (partridges, pheasants, chickens, thrushes ...) the third book deals with woodcock, ducks and other "passengers birds"; the fourth deals with the capture of animals (hares, rabbits, ferrets, badgers, foxes, wolves ...) by "threads, collars, laces, traps and other machinery"; the last part of the book concerns the fisheries for fish in both lakes in rivers with nets, hooks, bait and other machines. Beautiful specimen of the rare original edition. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, parue sous initialisme et illustrée de 66 planches gravées sur bois (premier livre : 7, second livre : 17, troisième livre : 16, quatrième livre : 10 et dernier livre : 16), dont plusieurs dépliantes ou à double page. Page de titre en rouge et noir. Un bandeau de l'époque contrecollé au verso de la page de titre. Reliure de l'époque en plein veau blond. Dos à cinq nerfs orné de caissons richement ornés, ainsi que d'une pièce de titre de maroquin rouge et d'une petite étiquette de bibliothèque en queue. Double filet doré sur les coupes. Toutes tranches rouges. Reliure habilement restaurée. Page de titre très légèrement tachée et une pâle mouillure atteignant la marge de trois feuillets en marge basse au début du volume. Quelques planches ont été renforcées au verso avec des bandes de papier, certaines présentent d'infimes déchirures sans manque. Destiné, comme le précise le titre, « à toutes personnes qui font leur séjour à la campagne », ce livre « curieux et récréatif » écrit par un moine de l'abbaye de Grandmont est en quelque sorte un manuel du parfait piégeur très abondamment illustré. Le livre est divisé en cinq parties : la première concerne la confection des filets destinés à capturer les « oiseaux, les bestes et les poissons » ; la seconde s'attarde sur la prise des « oiseaux non passagers » (perdrix, faisans, poules, grives...) ; le troisième livre s'intéresse à la chasse aux bécasses, canards et autres « oiseaux passagers » ; le quatrième traite de la capture de bêtes (lièvres, lapins, furet, blaireaux, renards, loups...) par des « filets, collets, lacets, pièges et autres machines » ; la dernière partie de l'ouvrage concerne la pêche des poissons, tant dans les étangs que dans les rivières grâce à des filets, hameçons, appâts et autres machines. Bel exemplaire de la rare édition originale.

        Navigatio Salomonis Ophiritica Illustrata

      Wittenberg: Andrea Hartmann, 1660. Thick duodecimo, engraved title; old repairs to two leaves, some browning but very good overall in contemporary vellum. Finding the fabled land of Ophir. Intriguing study of Ophir, the mythical land of gold and riches described in the Old Testament. This book draws upon a wide range of sources, from classical geographers to contemporary voyage accounts, speculating that Ophir may lie as far afield as South America or the East Indies.Several books of the Old Testament including Genesis, Kings and Isaiah describe the bounty of Ophir, where King Solomon ventured to bring back gold, gemstones and exotic animals (including monkeys, elephants and birds with splendid plumage). The gold of Ophir was reputed to be of unparalleled quality; not surprisingly the location of this fabled land captured the imagination of both scholars and travellers during the era of European expansion.The influx of rare commodities from Southeast Asia made a tremendous impact upon the economy of Europe during the seventeenth-century, it follows that the East Indies are one of several possible locations for the land of Ophir hypothesised in this book. Specific reference is made to Sumatra and Malacca (the southwest coast of the Malay peninsula). The author, German pedagogue and bibliographer Martin Lipen (1630-1692), draws upon Ptolemy and medieval Arabic scholarship in examining these possibilities. Likewise, the hypothesis that Ophir lay in South America is treated in some detail - over thirty pages being devoted to this tantalising prospect. Of additional interest to natural history collectors are the separate chapters on the fauna of Ophir as listed in the books of the Old Testament. For example, 29 pages examine the origins of the elephant, with similar extensive treatment of apes, peacocks, parrots and so forth.The riddle of Ophir was certainly enduring. The great English Tudor travel anthologist Samuel Purchas speculated that it lay in the Far East, and some two hundred years later biblical scholar Edward Wells came to the same conclusion: 'I shall say no more of Ophir here, than that it is generally agreed to lie in the East Indies' (An Historical Geography of the Old and New Testament Oxford 1809).

         Discours fait en une célèbre assemblée touchant la guérison des playes par la poudre de sympathie, où sa composition est enseignée, & plusieurs autres merveilles de la Nature sont développées ...

      imprimé à Rouen, & se vend à Paris, chez A. Courbé, 1660, in 12, de 195pp. 1f., pl. vélin époque, qq. taches sinon bon exemplaire. Seconde édition française de ce traité de la poudre de sympathie, la première datant de 1658. Rappelons que la préparation à base de vitriol, dont le chevalier Digby acheta le secret à un moine italien, fit fureur à la cour de Jacques Ier et en France sous le nom de "poudre de sympathie". Dans ses principes de guérison, Digby semble avoir prévu le magnétisme 100 ans avant Mesmer. En effet, ne déclare-t-il pas que "tout corps envoye une continuelle émanation d'atomes hors de soy" et que "l'imagination forte d'une personne agit merveilleusement sur celle d'une autre qui l'a plus faible et passive". ¶ Rare Caillet n°3124 ne cite pas cette édition - idem pour Dorbon - Ferguson I.213 "Digby was a member of the nucleus of experimental philosophers who afterwards founded the Royal Society" - Krivatsy n°3242.

        Ductor dubitantium, or the rule of conscience in all her generall measures; serving as a great instrument for the determination of cases of conscience

      London: Pr. by James Flesher for Richard Royston Folio (32 cm, 12.6"). 2 vols. I: Add. engr. t.-p., [6], xl, 559, [1] pp.; 1 plt. II: [2], 558, [2] pp.. 1660 First edition: Important philosophical treatise on conscience, casuistry, and Christian ethics, written by the Bishop of Down and Connor. The controversialist Taylor, crowned "the Shakespeare of divines" by Ralph Waldo Emerson, was the subject during his career of a number of accusations of crypto-popery, but the present work — the first of its kind — was designed as a "complete protestant answer to the many Roman Catholic manuals of casuistry" (according to the Oxford DNB online) and intended to provide an authoritative Anglican reference on the subject. The portrait of the author was engraved by Pierre Lombard, while the added engraved title-page is unsigned. Each of the four books here (in two volumes) has a separate title-page; the main title-pages are printed in black and ruled in red. The text is in English, Greek, and Latin. A printed addenda slip is affixed to the final text page of vol. II, above the catalogue of books sold by Richard Royston. Leaf L6 in vol. II is a cancel (and separated). Provenance: Vol. I added title-page recto with inked ownership inscription dated 1781 ("T. Moore"); vol. II front fly-leaf with inked ownership inscription dated 1696 ("Guilel. Rayner") and another (of "T. Moore's") dated 1781. Recent quarter calf and marbled paper–covered sides, leather edges tooled in blind, spine with gilt-stamped title and volume labels and gilt-stamped decorations between raised bands. Ownership inscriptions as above. First few leaves of vol. I (including regular and added title-pages) with tiny spots of worming; slightly larger sections of same to inner margins of some subsequent leaves; a number of pages in both volumes with scattered spots of worming, touching letters but not affecting sense. Light waterstaining to outer margins of some leaves. One leaf in vol. II separated. => Significant and attractive.

        Traum Geschicht von Dir und Mir. 103 S. incl. gestoch. Titel von A. Frölich. 12°. Kalblederbd (um 1900, Vordergelenk schwach) mit Rückenfilete.

      Ohne Ort und Druck, (1660). - Sehr seltene zweite (?) Ausgabe dieser interessanten Traumschrift, die seit ihrer Aufnahme in die erste Gesamtausgabe von Grimmelshausens Schriften diesem zugeschrieben wurde. Als ihr Verfasser gilt jetzt Balthasar Venator (1594-1664). "Sie stellt eine Satire auf Hof-, Kleider- u. Tischsitten dar und muß als wichtige Grimmelshausen-Quelle angesehen werden. Aus dieser Vorlage übernahm Grimmelshausen das Motiv des Mannes, der träumt, daß er schwanger sei, und benützt es als verbindende Klammer, die die drei Werke, Simplizissimus, Courasche und Springinsfed zu einer Einheit zusammenschließt" (Seebass/Kistner I 367). Noch der renommierte Grimmelshausen-Forscher Scholte hielt die 'Traum Geschicht' für ein Werk Grimmelshausens, das viel Persönliches enthalte und in der Forschung bisher zu wenig beachtet worden sei. – Kupfertitel knapp beschnitten, letzte Blatt mit Wasserrand. Seit über 60 Jahren nur 2 Exemplare im Handel nachweisbar. – VD17 23:299077D. Dünnhaupt F 1.2 (unter Grimmelshausen, Fehlattributionen, ohne Kollation und Standortnachweis). Vgl. Faber du Faur 1150 (kein Kupfertitel, Drucktitel umfangreicher und mit offener Jahreszahl) und Goed. III 251, 2 ('Traumgesichte', offene Jahreszahl), beide unter Grimmelshausen.

Corners lightly rubbed, free endpapers renewed. Slight crease to title, which is lightly soiled and has a small rust hole just touching one letter. A very good copy. First edition of Petty's epistolary self-defence against Sir Hierome Sankey's 1659 parliamentary defamation of Petty's 1650s Survey of Ireland. In his capacity of Surveyor-general of Ireland, Petty's work facilitated land redistribution of "8,400,000 acres … to new (and usually protestant) owners" (Oxford DNB). The sluggishness of the process sparked murmurs of discontent, fanned by suggestions that Petty had made considerable personal gains from the undertaking: he acknowledged benefiting by at least £9000. On 24 March 1659 whispers of suspected chicanery were publicised when "on behalf of the State" Sankey censured Petty as "a very beast of prey, full of fraud and rapine" before the Commons. In this account Petty declares "envy" to have been the root of Sankey's allegations. The work is "a polemical essay on the Survey, which Petty had described in full and sober detail in The History of the Survey of Ireland [not published until 1851]. His Reflections was composed in the heat of the controversy and was the necessary means by which Petty might seek to justify himself in the eyes of his friends" (Keynes).

        Capricciosi e piacevoli ragionamenti... (&:) La puttana errante, overo dialogo di Madalena e Giulia... -

      In Cosmopoli (Amsterdam, Elzevir), 1660.2 parti in 1 vol. In - 8 picc. Solida legatura del '700 in pieno marocchino rosso, filetti dorati sui piatti, dorso con nervi e con titolo ed elaborati fregi impressi in oro, merletto dorato interno, sguardie marmorizzate, tagli dorati. 541, (3 bianche), 38 pp.; ottimo esemplare conservato in un astuccio, proveniente dalla biblioteca di Roger Pyerefitte. Una delle due edizioni stampate dagli Elzevir dei Ragionamenti di Aretino. Ambedue sono rare e ricercate e contengono per la prima volta La puttana errante. Anche la veste tipografica è pressochè identica, a parte La puttana errante che è su 38 pagine in una tiratura e su 54 pagine nell'altra: secondo Brunet la prima è quella con La puttana errante su 38 pagine, mentre Willems dà la precedenza a quella su 58 pagine. Per una descrizione dettagliata, cf. Brunet I, 412, e Willems, Elzevir, 858. One of two Elzevir editions of the Dialogues. Both are equally rare and sought after and the first to contain the Puttana errante, a pseudo - Aretine text. They are also almost identical but for a few variations in the set up, the most notable being that the Puttana errante is on 38 pp. in one issue and on 54 pp. in the other (for a detailed description cf. Brunet and Willems). A particularly attractive copy, bound in 18th century red morocco, spine in compartments and richly gitl, gilt fillets on covers, inner gilt dentelles, marbled end papers, gilt edges; from the library of Roger Peyrefitte, with his bookplate loosely inserted; preserved in a modern slipcase.
