        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]

Bien que n'appartenant à aucune école, et surtout pas celle de Malherbe et de ses disciples, le style et la manière de Saint-Amant sont classiques, racontant dans le genre épique et en vers suivis l'histoire de Moïse. On pourra trouver à cette poésie très lisible et hyperbolique de nets échos de Victor Hugo.

(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.

      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.

        Reflections upon some persons and things in Ireland, by letters to and from Dr Petty: with Sir Hierome Sankey's speech in Parliament

      London: for John Martin, James Allestreye, and Thomas Dicas,, 1660. Octavo (149 × 95mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, red morocco label, neatly rebacked. 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.

        La Carta Del Navigar Pitoresco Dialogo

      1660. BOSCHINI, Marco. La Carta del Navegar Pitoresco. [20], 680, [10] pp. Illustrated with an engraved allegorical frontispiece, an engraved portrait, and 25 full-page engravings. Small 4to., 211 x 145 mm, bound in French early eighteenth-century full red morocco, gilt-tooled spine. In Venetia: Per li Baba, 1660. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, an important work by this early Venetian connoisseur. It is one of the most influential works on Italian art of the seventeenth century, and that which placed the Venetian school of painting before all others (Benezit). Marco Boschini (1613-1678) was a Venetian painter, engraver and art dealer whose most important client, Cardinal Leopoldo de' Medici, commissioned him to purchase Venetian paintings for the Medici collection. Filippo Baldinucci (1624-1697) was placed in charge of the Tuscan school and Carlo Cesare Malvasia (1616-1693) the Bolognese school. Boschini's book is written in Venetian dialect and takes the form of a tour through Venice by the author and a companion, discus-sing in detail the art that they encounter. The conversation touches on the technique, the style and the regional flavor of the Venetian paintings at hand. The English pioneer connoisseur of Italian baroque art, Sir Denis Mahon, considered Boschini "the most remarkable writer in the minority (anti-classic) camp in Seicento Italy." Magnificent copy. Cicognara 976 "operetta interessantissima." Schlosser-Magnino 547. Borroni I, 1619. Mahon, Studies in Seicento Art and Theory, 1947, p. 48. Gamba 118.

        Le Nombre des ecclesiastiques de France, celuy des religieux et des religieuses, le temps de leur Etablissement, ce dont ils subsistent, et a quoy ils servent

      [France, no date, not before 1660]. Half-sheet 8vo (149 x 100 mm). Collation: A-G4 (G4 blank removed). 52 pp, [1] leaf (errata). Some dampstaining and softening, fore-edges of first dozen leaves wormed causing progress ively diminishing loss to outer blank margins. Blurred type due to shaky presswork on B3v and B4r (next to each other on the forme in half-sheet imposition). Contemporary flexible parchment, parchment thong supports sewn through covers at head and foot (covers stained and soiled). *** first edition of an anonymous pamphlet denouncing monastic abuses and proposing a restructuring of the pastoral economy. The author, himself no doubt a priest, provides vivid insights into the realities of daily religious life in the small towns and villages of France, along with interesting, if unverifiable, estimates of the population sizes of the various clerical ranks and monastic orders. His first complaint is that local curés or parish priests are not provided enough to live on by the Church, forcing them to demand payment from the faithful for sacraments such as Mass and funerals (a scandal that contributes to negative views of the Church). Furthermore, while some parishes are endowed with more chaplains and vicars than they need, other large parishes sorely lack these religious officials, who assist the priests with Mass, Catechism, Confession, and other daily chores. To solve these problems the author proposes a yearly annuity of 500 livres for all curés, and some judicious combining of parishes. The latter move would also serve to reduce the plethora of secular canons (of whom he estimates that there are 16,000 in France), who are a drain on society and on the Church; instead of singing the Divine Office themselves, although that is their central function, they delegate the job to ?"hired priests?" and choir-boys. The ranks of the latter, estimated at 3000 in France, could also use some thinning, for the boys are taught only music and all become Musicians ... whereas, ?"had these little children remained in the secular world they would have contributed to the Arts and Trades?" (p. 11). The author does not question that the faithful are there for the ?"shearing?" by their pastors, but he calls for a more equitable reapportionment of the ?"wool?" (the local priests should be given preferment to canons and monks: they should have ?"the first share in the shearing of the flock, since it is their job to feed it spiritually?": p. 8). His greatest scorn is reserved for the proliferation of new offshoots of the three traditional mendicant monastic orders, the Carmelites, Augustinians, and Jacobins (Dominicans). Created to satisfy the egotistical ambitions of their founders, these new orders were often distinguished from each other by such trivialities as the colors of their habits or the length of their beards (p. 16). Numbering in the thousands, such superfluous friars spend their time collecting alms or simply reading the Divine Office, ?"without singing it?" (another repeated complaint), and they produce each year mere handfuls of preachers and confessors (i.e., useful clergymen). What?'s more they live off the people, or rather off the nobility: ?"everywhere they eat well, and only visit the Noblesse?" (p. 22). The author proposes simplifying the religious orders, and sending these parasitical mendicants ?"back where they came from?" (p. 18), by closing all the establishments founded within the past forty years, and imposing strict size limits on each of the major ?"old?" orders. A list of seemingly objective histories of the various orders, both monastic and mendicant, summarizing their functions and providing estimates of their current populations, is intended to contrast the economy and productivity (in pastoral activity) of the older orders with the exorbitant totals of the alms collected by the new, populous mendicant offshoots, who engage in almost no pastoral care. The last two chapters contain a thorough analysis of the average expenses of a monk, from his daily allotment of wine (or beer, or cider) to costs of maintaining the monastery and of treating the sick; and a biting account of the miserable lives of nuns and of the many forcibly cloistered women, placed in convents by their families. Like their masculine counterparts, new women?'s orders had recently mushrooomed (population estimates are provided), and the author?'s suggested remedy for the ills of female monasticism is the same: close the new houses, and limit the numbers of the old convent communities to between 32 and 60 inhabitants (p. 46). The publication date is based on a passage in the text (p. 15), referring to the founding of the Cordeliers in 1520 as having taken place 140 years ago. The pamphlet was reprinted in 1876. OCLC lists 3 copies, two in France and one in Mannheim. Not in Barbier.

        Rerum memorabilium sive deperditarum. Edited by Heinrich Salmuth

      Frankfurt: 1660. 4to (219 x 173 mm). 2 parts in one, [8], 349, [23]; 313, [17] pp. Engraved title to part I [after Sebastian Furck], double column. Neat small repair to title, small hole in f3 costing a few letters, occasional slight browning intrinsic to paper; but overall fresh condition. Contemporary ivory vellum over pasteboard, title gold lettered on spine, edges red-sprinkled. Provenance: Duke August of Brunswick-Lüneburg, bookplate and printed shelf number 57; Herzog August Bibliothek, Wolfenbüttel, library and withdrawal stamps on verso of title.*** A handsome copy of Panciroli?'s encyclopedic history of ancient and modern arts and technology. First published at Amberg in 1599-1602, Salmuth?'s Latin edition was a ?"surreptitious?" translation, with extensive commentary, of the author's Raccolta di alcune cose più segnalate… which circulated at the time in manuscript. No fewer than four separate issues are recorded by VD-17 under this imprint and date; all reprint Schoenwetter?'s 1631 edition, but only one (39:160841F) bears the original engraved title by Sebastian Furck used in previous editions; the other three issues, including this one, have exact copies of the engraving. Part I treats the arts and techniques of antiquity, including papyrus, roads, statues, libraries, labyrinths, the pyramids, tombs, obelisks, dress and accessories such as the fibula, wine, slavery, Roman writing and writing surfaces, equitation, hunting and food production, and the performing arts, including music, musica muta (pantomime), and stagecraft. Part II, on inventions unknown to the ancients, opens with a long section on the New World, discussing its discovery, the effects of the encounter on the natives (venereal disease tops the list), American crops and products including sassafras, plantains, and many other fruits and herbs, with their uses by the Native Americans. Other sections are devoted to the history of printing in China and Europe (an addendum by Salmuth provides ?"the true history?" of Gutenberg?'s invention, from the evidence contained in the Helmasperger Notarial Instrument), papermaking, sugar, alchemy, porcelain, time-pieces, bells, ciphers and codes, glasses, silk-weaving, tournaments and jousts, and watermills. "Pancirollo?'s work is interesting, not only as giving some notion of the state of knowledge as to the history of invention in his time, but as displaying the attitude of scholars towards the practical arts of the ancients" (Ferguson). VD 17 12:650784G; Ferguson, Books of Secrets, II, pp. 33 & 58; Sabin 58412. Other editions: Brunet, IV, 339; Cicognara 1745; Bigmore & Wyman II:112-13 (discussing the printing scene in lower border of engraved title).

        Guinea. "Guinea

      Africa: Amsterdam Schenk, Petri & Valk Gerardi c1700. Copper engraved map of Guinea, West Africa after Janssonius from Schenk and Valk's " Atlas Contractus." Original full wash colour; verso blank. The map after Jansonnius shows the coast of West Africa from Sierra Leone to Gabon, focused upon Guinea and Benin; numerous elephants, lions and monkeys within the land; ships, monsters and compass roses to sea. Decorative title cartouche surmounted by natives and monkeys; 2 black putti bear an elephant tusk above the sea at bottom left corner. Good impression with bright colour; worm track to upper centre fold in blank margin with old paper repair to verso, not entering image. The maps of Schenk and Valk are famous for their full wash colour , however often the pigments, particularly in the greens deteriorated leading to browning and eventually could cause the paper to crack, for this reason it is unusual to see such bright original colour. SCHENCK, Pieter 1660-1718/9 Dutch mapmaker and publisher. Born in Elberfeld, Germany in 1660. Moved to Amsterdam in 1683 where he became a pupil of Gerard Valck, later in 1687 he married Agatha Valck, sister of his associate., thus uniting two great families. In 1686 he is noted in a privilege granted to Petrus Schenck and Gerardus Valck for the printing & sale of their prints. The Valck and Schenk families where active as print sellers, publishers and printers of maps, atlases and architectural drawings as well globes. They accquired plates from the stock of Johannes Janssonius and also of Visscher reissuing several maps of Janssonius' "Atlas Novus "from 1683-94 and published an Atlas titled" Nova totius Geographia" in 1702. The best known of the joint Pieter Schenk & Gerard Valck publications were the second edition of Andreas Cellarius's " Celestial Atlas Harmonia Macrocosmica'" 1708 and an edition of Jan Jansson's "Novus Atlas" entitled the "Atlas Anglois" published in London by David Mortier in 1715. Pieter Schenck the Elder's earliest cartographic productions were a number of maps after Nicolas Sanson published in a composite Atlas, "Atlas Contractus or Atlas Minor" c.1696. He also published a further composite Atlas, "Atlantis sylloge compendiosa," c.1702. Other works included his famous Atlas of one hundred town views," Hecatompolis" [1702];" Le Theatre de Mars "[1706]; and the "Schouwburg van der Oorlog" [1706].
