      Printed for H. Brome and H. Marsh. London. 1660. FIRST EDITION. Small 8vo.(158 × 104 mm), in 3 parts.

A little rubbed, occasional light waterstaining at head, but overall an excellent copy.------First Edition, rare, published in the year of the Restoration, by the fervent Royalist and biographer David Lloyd (1635–1692), its title echoing that of the more famous book attributed to Charles I. The binder of this copy, Christian Kalthoeber,was perhaps the finest craftsman of the late eighteenth century. One of the vast influx of German binders to London, he worked first for Baumgarten, and in 1782 succeeded him. He was considered during his day to be the finest binder in the world.

        Trutz Nachtigal. 7 Bl., 317 S., 1 Bl. Mit Kupfertitel und 24 gestoch. Notentafeln. Pergamentbd d. Z. (etwas gedunkelt) mit handschriftl. Rückentitel und zwei intakten Messingschließen.

      Köln, Wilhelm Friessem, 1660.. . Dritte Ausgabe des Gedichtzyklus' Spees, zuerst 1649 erschienen, die letzte mit dem Kupfertitel. Die Sammlung gehört zu dem Besten, was je die geistliche lyrische Poesie hervorgebracht hat. Für die starke Nachwirkung und Verbreitung sprechen zwei Übersetzungen und zahlreiche Auflagen der 'Trutz-Nachtigal' bis zum Beginn des 18. Jahrhunderts sowie die Neuausgabe durch Clemens Brentano im Jahr 1817. Ferner gingen 5 Lieder in 'Des Knaben Wunderhorn' ein. Nicht ohne Selbstbewusstsein sagt der Dichter in der Vorrede, dass das Büchlein "trutz allen Nachtigalen süß, und lieblich singe, und zwar auffrichtig Poetisch: also daß es sich auch wohl bey sehr guten lateinischen und anderen Poeten dörfft hören lassen." Die Unabhängigkeit von Opitz ist bemerkenswert. Dazu bemerkt Lipphardt: "Indem Spee 'einer lieblichen Teutschen Poetica' als erster 'die Bahn zeigte', wurde er der Begründer einer neuen Form des deutschen Kirchenliedes und in seiner 'Trutz-Nachtigal' des deutschen geistlichen Sololiedes." Alle 24 Lieder für Singstimme mit beziffertem Bass sind beigegeben. Als Komponist wird Jacob Gippenbusch vermutet. - Durchgehend leicht gebräunt. Der Kupfertitel im Außenrand leicht fransig, eine Fehlstelle im weißen Rand alt hinterlegt (Darstellung nicht berührt). Gutes Exemplar. - Dünnhaupt 3.3. Eitner IX 220. Sommervogel VII 1428. Vgl. Goed. III 194 1 ff., Faber du Faur 975 und 976, Jantz 2362, Manheimer 395 und Wolffheim 2438.

        The Book of Common Prayer [London, 1662] [with:] The New Testament, London 1660 [with] The Whole Book of Psalms, London 1661. Bound together in a contemporary "sombre" binding

      London: Henry Hills and John Field, 1660 (NT); [London: Bill & Barker, 1662] (BCP); 1661 (Psalms). (BINDING) 8vo. Woodcut of the Royal Arms of Charles II on verso of final leaf of the Common Prayer. Contemporary black morocco "sombre" binding, elaborately tooled in blind on upper and lower covers with a central lozenge cartouche made from double impressions of two separate tools, the same tools being used to decorate the four corners, the design surrounded by floral sprays, spine of six raised banks with floral tooling in each of the seven compartments, inner gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers, a.e.g. Front joint repaired, skillful minor restoration to the corners by Sotheran, overall a very attractive binding. Lacks first three leaves of Book of Common Prayer. Herbert 669 or 670 (with OT); Griffiths 1662-1663.3 . A handsome volume, made even more interesting by the contemporary ownership inscription "Elizabeth Maynard 1663" on the verso of the New Testament title page, and, in her handwriting on the blank recto of the Psalms, "What Children I have christened [there follows a list of nine names] Innocents day 1665" plus additional notations of subsequent christenings in 1665 and 1667. As the "Children" included a Mrs Cooper, it may be that the word is used in an ecclesiastical sense; and it is interesting to conjecture what role Elizabeth Maynard played in the ceremony in these years following the Restoration of 1660

        Ductor Dubitantium, or The Rule of Conscience In all her generall measures; Serving as a great Instrument for the determination of Cases of Conscience. In Four Books.

      London: Printed by James Flesher, for Richard Royston 1660. - Ductor dubitantium was designed as a comprehensive manual of cases of conscience which would form a capstone to the English Protestant edifice already created by Sanderson, Hall, and Perkins. No longer would English clergy need to consult Roman Catholic casuists and run the risk of being misled by their Ôprobablism.Õ Taylor promised general rules from which every particular case could be resolve.Taylor believed that there is always a right answer in moral dilemmas, even if human reason cannot fathom it; and while offering the conventional teaching on the obligation of an Ôerroneous conscience,Õ he placed an overwhelming emphasis on the duty of human reason to discern the good act, where ÔgoodÕ is defined by rational nature and divine commandsÓ (John Spurr in Dictionary of Seventeenth-Century British Philosophers). Two volumes in one, folio [vi], xl, 559, [3, blank], 558, [1, errata and catalogue, with verso blank] pp Engraved title and frontisportrait, engraved vignette of Jesus carrying a lamb on the title-page to the second volume. Printed title-pages for both volumes ruled in red. L6 in the second volume is a cancel, as usual, reflecting a change due to the Restoration of Charles II. Contemporary calf, ruled in blind, expertly rebacked and recornered. Title in gilt on spine. Light intermittent dampstain at upper corner. A very good, clean copy. First edition. ÒTaylor's success owes as much to his literary talent as his intellect. He was notable for his eloquence, his almost poetical imagination, and his wide biblical and classical learning: even his opponents recognized his Ôadmirable wit, great parts, quick and elegant pen, his abilities in critical learning, and his profound skill in antiquitiesÕ (Wood, Ath. Oxon., 3.784)Ó (Oxford DNB). He has been called the ÒShakespeare of DivinesÓ for his poetic style of expression. Wing T324. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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, 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.

L"un des derniers feux de la poésie burlesque, cette curieuse pièce décrit l"entrée de Louis XIV et de sa jeune épouse Marie-Thérèse à Paris, le 26 août 1660. La mode burlesque, inspirée du goût des auteurs italiens pour la dérision et la parodie, fut personnifiée en France par Scarron, qui mourut cette même année1660 et dont la jeune veuve deviendra maîtresse du roi. L"ouvrage est dédicacé à Fouquet, qui ne put assister aux fastes pour cause de maladie, mais avait reçu le jeune couple à Vaux en juillet. Ruggieri, 490.

        La Conférence de Ianot et Piarot Doucet de Villenoce, & de Iaco Paquet de Pantin, sur les grandes magnificences qu'on prépare à Paris, pour l'entrée de la Reyne.

      Paris, s.n. 1660 - in-4, 8 pp., vélin souple, dos lisse muet (reliure moderne). Bon exemplaire. Curieuse pièce en parler populaire parisien : il s'agit d'un dialogue entre trois rustres sur l'entrée solennelle de Marie-Thérèse à Paris en 1660. Elle fut si répandue que Madame de Sévigné y fait allusion dans une lettre à Bussy-Rabutin du 18 mars 1678. Quoique très décalée dans le temps par rapport à ses devancières, elle se rattache à la série des six premières "conférences" truculentes, publiées pendant la Fronde et qui mettaient en scène le dialogue de deux paysans de la banlieue (Saint-Ouen et Montmorency) déplorant le malheur des temps. Les cinq premières étaient parues pendant l'hiver 1649, et la sixième en février 1651 ; suivirent quatre imitations, publiées de 1652 à 1660, dont notre pièce fait partie. Or, l'importance de cette production anonyme fut considérable à l'époque : c'est du parler de Ianot et Piarot que Molière tira ses touches de patois parisien mises dans la bouche des gens du peuple de ses pièces, et, par ce biais, ce parler connut une reprise et une consécration théâtrales jusqu'à la Révolution au moins. En revanche, leur anonymat, la confusion facile qu'on en a pu faire avec de simples mazarinades, ainsi que la disparition effective du vrai parler parisien au cours du XVIIIe siècle les ont condamnées à un oubli profond tant de la part des historiens (leur apport événementiel est mince, sinon nul) que de celle des historiens de la littérature (leur lecture et leur interprétation exacte sont très malaisées, et des hommes comme Nisard ou même Dauzat ont accumulé les contresens à leur sujet). Cf. Deloffre (Frédéric) : Burlesques et paysanneries. Etude sur l'introduction du patois parisien dans la littérature française du XVIIe siècle (1956). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

It actually contains only twenty-three instead of twenty-six sermons; sermon 9 is left out altogether, but two of the sermons are printed twice over, nos. 16 and 17 being merely repetitions of nos. 5 and 3. The collation...will be seen to be very erratic;...The pagination is very faulty, although the right number of pages, 411, is finally arrived at....There are in addition several minor misprints in the pagination. There are also variable irregularities in some of the signatures....a large number of corrections were made while the book was passing through the press....also note a change in the type after sheet Aa,...[indicating] that the two parts of the book were printed simultaneously at two different presses....The book was printed by Thomas Newcomb (1649-1681), and was twice reissued with new title-pages in 1661 (see [Keynes] nos. 32 and 32a)". Of the three volumes of John Donne's sermons published, volume III is the rarest (Keynes, p. 53-54).Contemporary tree calf, ruled in blind, spine decoratively tooled in gilt with a red morocco spine label, lettered in gilt.
