        Book of Kells 8. Jahrhundert Trinity College Library, Dublin, Ms. 58 (A.I.6) Einer der geheimnisvollsten Kunstschätze. Mystisches Zeugnis frühen irischen Christentums.

      Das Book of Kells enthält so manche Miniatur des frühen Mittelalters, die zu den schönsten zählt, die je geschaffen wurde. Bis auf zwei sind alle Seiten dieser Handschrift mit einer fast unbeschreiblichen Fülle symbolträchtiger und mystischer Malerei ausgeschmückt. Die Handschrift beeindruckt sowohl in der Anzahl als auch in der Größe der Pergamentseiten, die durchschnittlich die Maße von 33 x 25 cm aufweisen. Es wurde nicht für den täglichen Gebrauch und auch nicht für das Studium gefertigt, sondern sollte ein geheiligtes Werk sein und an hohen Festtagen auf dem Altar das Wort Gottes repräsentieren. 680 Seiten, Format: 33 x 25 cm, Einband aus feinstem weißen Leder, mit Schmuckkassette Das Book of Kells wurde vermutlich im Kloster Iona um das Jahr 800 von unbekannten, genialen Künstlern geschaffen. Ein erster Hinweis auf seine Existenz findet sich in einem Bericht von 1007 über einen Diebstahl in der Kirche von Kells, in dem das Buch "Das große Evangeliar des Columcille, die Hauptreliquie der westlichen Welt" genannt wird.Bald darauf wurde das in Kells vergrabene Buch aufgefunden. Es blieb in Kells, bis man es während der Regierungszeit Cromwells aus Sicherheitsgründen nach Dublin brachte. Um 1661 übergab es Henry Jones, Bischof von Meath, dem Trinity College. Seither wird es in der Bibliothek des College in Dublin gehütet.Das Book of Kells enthält vor allem die vier Evangelien. Aber auch andere Texte fanden Aufnahme: etwa am Anfang der Handschrift Kanontafeln, die die Konkordanzverzeichnisse enthalten, die von Eusebius von Cäsarea zusammengestellt worden waren, oder für das Kloster Kells wichtige besitzrechtliche Urkunden. Der lateinische Text wurde in stolzer insularer Halbunziale geschrieben, die wie auch die Illumination einen Höhepunkt irischen Kunstschaffens darstellt.Das Book of Kells muß in einem Skriptorium entstanden sein, das selbst die ausgeklügelten Finessen der Handschriftenherstellung beherrschte, denn nur mit einem äußerst fundierten technischen Wissen und hervorragenden Kenntnissen über vergangene und zeitgenössische Kunst war es möglich, eine solche Fülle symbolhafter und geheimnisvoller Darstellungen zu schaffen. Die Faksimile-Edition besteht aus einer aufeinander abgestimmten Einheit von Faksimileband, wissenschaftlichem Kommentarband und einer Schmuckkassette. Die Auflage ist weltweit auf 1480 numerierte Exemplare beschränkt, wobei 740 Exemplare für den angelsächsischen Raum reserviert sind.Die 680 Seiten umfassende Handschrift wird bis ins kleinste Detail und vollkommen originalgetreu im Format von ca. 33 x 25 cm wiedergegeben. Sie entstand in einzigartiger Verbindung modernster technischer Verfahren und hochqualifizierter Handarbeit.Der Einband besteht aus feinstem weißen Leder. Die den Originalseiten entsprechend randbeschnittenen Bogen wurden von Hand auf vier echte Bünde geheftet. Der Kommentarband umfaßt 400 Seiten. Die Experten: Dr. J.J. Alexander, Professor für Kunstgeschichte am Institute of Fine Arts, New York Anthony Cains, Leiter der Restaurierungsabteilung, Trinity College Library, Dublin Geraóid MacNiocaill, Professor für Geschichte, University College Galway Dr. Patrick McGurk, Dozent für Geschichte des Mittelalters, Birbeck College, University of London, und Dr. Bernard Meehan, Leiter der Handschriftenabteilung, Trinity College Library, Dublin. Herausgeber der deutschen Ausgabe des Kommentarbandes ist Prof. Dr. Anton von Euw, Konservator am Schnütgen-Museum Köln und Professor für mittelalterliche Kunstgeschichte an der Universität Köln. Der weltbekannte Autor Umberto Eco verfaßte ein mitreißendes Vorwort.Bei dem vorliegenden Exemplar handelt es sich um eine gut erhaltene Ausgabe aus "Zweiter Hand", wie neu! Daher der günstige Preis.

        Paraguaria vulgo Paraguay. Cum adjacentibus.

      Artist: Mortier Peter (-1711) Amsterdam; issued in: Amsterdamca1695 1661 - - technic: Copper print ; colorit: original colored ; condition: Very good ; size in cm : 45 x 54,5 - description: Map shows Uruguay, partly Paraguay, east part of Argentinia and Rio do sul ( Brasilia) - Vita of the artist: Pieter Mortier (1661?1711) was an 18th-century mapmaker and engraver from the Northern Netherlands. Mortier had a partnership with Johannes Covens I (1697-1774) and founded the map publishing company Covens & Mortier (1721-1866). Mortier, being French himself, had easy access to French cartographers such as De L'Isle, Sanson, Jaillot, de Fer and De Wit. Consequently, much of Mortier's business was built upon leveraging the sophisticated Dutch printing establishment to issue embellished high quality editions of previously contemporary French maps. In the greater context of global cartography, this was a significant advantage as most Dutch map publishes had, at this point, fallen into the miasma of reprinting their own outdated works. By contrast, the cartographers of France were producing the most accurate and up to date charts anywhere. Mortier's cartographic work culminated in the magnificent nautical atlas, Le Neptune Francois. Upon Pierre's death in 1711 this business was inherited by his widow. In 1721 his son Cornelius Mortier took over the day to day operation of the firm. Cornelius partnered with his brother-in-law Jean Covens to form one of history's great cartographic partnerships - Covens and Mortier - which continued to publish maps and atlases until about 1866.

H2135. All appear to be rare. We have never seen this book on the market since beginning to take note of such things in 1969. We could not find any record of this book ever appearing at auction, going back to the beginning of published auction records. The only sale record we could find was a copy which appeared in Quaritch catalogues of 1966 and 1968 (listed for the equivalent of $564.00), apparently sold to the Folger Library.The History includes a section on the Portuguese conquest of northern Africa (p. 11) and their exploration of the coasts of Africa and India, as well as Sumatra, Java, and other islands in Indonesia; their visits to China and Japan are also mentioned (pp. 11-12, 13-17). Brazil is mentioned on pp. 17-18, as a place that seemed at first "of small profit, so as the Criminal Judges of Portugal did and doe yet still, confine and banish thither Thieves and Murtherers." Among the causes of the downfall of the Conde-Duque de Olivares is the loss of Goa, Ormuz, Brazil, and the Azores (p. 101).Provenance: Bookplate of Manuel Freire de Andrade (1911-1973), son of Augusto Freire de Andrade (1859-1929), colonialist and statesman, governor-general of Mozambique, etc. Manuel served in the South African Embassy in Lisbon and was an astute book collector.

Dictionnaire étymologique du célèbre historien, polygraphe et compilateur jésuite Philippe Labbe suivi d'un Dictionnaire latin-françois et d'un Catalogue curieux de quelques expressions des sons et des voix. La dédicace est adressée à « Messieurs de l'Académie Françoise ». Ebauché puis abandonné à l'époque où Ménage publia ses Origines de la langue françoise (1650), Labbe reprit son travail suite à la publication en 1657 du Jardin des racines grecques du fondateur des Petites écoles de Port Royal Claude Lancelot, afin d'en corriger les « très grandes beveües ». « Professeur de belles-lettres, de philosophie, de théologie, Philippe Labbe (1607-1667) fut surtout un érudit infatigable, d'une puissance de travail extraordinaire, d'une mémoire prodigieuse. Les notes et extraits de lectures laissés par lui à sa mort dépassaient, dit-on, par leur masse, ce qu'un autre savant aurait pu simplement lire en toute une vie. » (Grente).

Lomo con nervios y un tejuelo. ==El profesor de la Universidad de Navarra Miguel Zugasti, destacó, en su última conferencia, que "si algo fue Palafox, además de santo, fue escritor", recordó en el inicio de su exposición que "ya en 1766, en apoyo de la Causa de canonización, se publicó en Osma un corpus de sus escritos en el que aparecieron recogidos más de doscientos setenta" documentos, cartas, pastorales, libros, etc. "Es cierto que la mayor parte de la obra palafoxiana no está compuesta por escritos literarios sino por cartas pastorales, escritos catequéticos, morales, etc. pero siempre con una nota común: poseen un lenguaje claro y preciso, sin adornos, aún habiendo escrito en plena explosión del Barroco literario". A este respecto, recordó que "incluso Baltasar Gracián, que era jesuita, propone a Palafox como modelo de claridad expositiva". Size: 20 x 15 Cm. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Eröffnung unterschiedlicher Heimlichkeiten der Natur [...], vornemlich von einem wunderbaren Geheimnüß in Heilungen der Wunden, ohne Berührung, [...] durch die Sympathiam, discurßweise gehalten in einer hochansehnlichen Versamlung zu Montpelier [...] Zum zweytenmal gedruckt [...]. Frankfurt/Main, Balthasar Christoph Wust, 1661.

      1661. (6), 131, (5) SS. Pappband. 8vo. Seltene, Ferguson unbekannte zweite deutsche Ausgabe (zuvor 1660) des bekannten, bis weit ins 18. Jh. wiederaufgelegten Traktats mit der Erfindung und Anwendungsweise des Wunderheilmittels "Pulvis sympatheticus" (ferrum sulfuricum siccum). Sir Kenelm Digby (1603-65) führte ein abenteuerliches Leben, war als Diplomat aktiv und fuhr auch als Kaperkapitän zur See. Nach dem Tode seiner Frau zu den Naturwissenschaften hingezogen, führte er zahlreiche chemische Experimente durch. "In 1657 his increasingly poor health led Digby to take the waters at Montpellier, where he gave his famous account of the 'powder of sympathy', which cured wounds by being rubbed on the weapon that inflicted them. It was a strong solution of vitriol (copper sulfate) in rainwater, which could be improved by drying in the sun and by mixture with gum tragacanth" (DSB IV, 95). "The discourse on the powder of sympathy, one of the most famous of Digby's productions" (Ferguson VI, 22), erschien zuerst 1658 in Paris (in französischer Sprache), dann im selben Jahr in London auf Englisch und hernach in der Übersetzung von H. Hupka auf Deutsch. - Papierbedingt durchgehend gebräunt. Ohne das gestochene Frontispiz (als Faksimile beiliegend). Alter hs. Besitzvermerk am Titel verso. VD 17, 3:625237G. BL (German books) D 459.

        THE HORN EXALTED OR ROOME FOR CUCKOLDS. Being a treatise concerning the reason and original of the word Cuckold, and why such are said to wear horns.

      London, printed for J. Cadwel, 1661. Very proper for these times, when men are butting, and pushing, and goring, and horning one another. Also an appendix concerning women and jealousie. FIRST EDITION 1661, small 8vo, approximately 165 x 100 mm, 6½ x 4 inches, LACKING FRONTISPIECE, SUPPLIED IN MODERN FACSIMILE, and lacking a blank leaf at beginning and end, and the leaf following the title page, most likely the Dedication, pages: (12), 1 - 84, (2) imprimatur leaf, signatures: *1 - *8 ( - *1, *3), A - E8, F4 ( - F4), catchword on *7v is a printer's mistake, pagination irregular but text collated and guaranteed complete, bound in modern full calf, blind ruled border and blind decorative panelling to covers, raised bands and blind rules to spine, gilt lettered red morocco label, new endpapers. 2 lines written in Latin at top of colophon page, occasional minor mark to text or margins. A good copy with facsimile frontispiece as noted. ESTC R209943 Wing attributes authorship to George Rogers (1618 - 1697) a medical man who trained in Padua and then went into practice in London, eventually becoming the president of the College of Physicians. However the ODNB does not list this amongst his works. In the Preface to this serio - comic work, published to coincide with the celebrations for the restoration of the monarchy (and in an act of remarkable prescience about what would notoriously prove to be one of the major preoccupations of that new anti - puritan era), seeing 'the general verge of the people to merryment', the author expresses the hope that 'this piece of drollery' on the subject of cuckoldry might prove 'acceptable' to his readers. The first part runs to page 35, The Appendix on Women and Jealousy is slightly larger occupying page 37 to 84. Wing (2nd ed.) R1802. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE.

        REGARDING COMMERCIAL ISSUES IN THE TOWN OF MECO

      Madrid 1661 - 310 x 210 mm. (12 1/4 x 8 1/4"). The main document of 20 unnumbered vellum leaves. Single column, 28 lines in two careful professional italic hands. Contemporary limp vellum, ink titling on upper cover, remnants of green silk ties, with a further outer limp vellum wrapper made from a contemporaneous document similar to this one. Elaborately illustrated opening page with floral frame in red and black enclosing royal crest and the words "In el nombre de la Sanctissima Trinidad" ("In the name of the Most Holy Trinity") in red and black, with a stylized Janus face of leaves forming the "I." ACCOMPANIED BY THE LEAD SEAL OF PHILLIP IV AND WITH A FOUR-LEAF PAPER DOCUMENT SIGNED ("YO EL REY") BY PHILIP V and dated March of 1734 laid in at rear. Wrapper somewhat faded, worn, and stained, vertical crease to front cover, text with occasional minor smudges or stains to margin, otherwise in excellent condition--fresh, generally clean, and well preserved. The seal a bit rubbed and with edges not as sharp as they once were, but, on the whole, in an extremely attractive state. Written out by professional scribes whose careful work reflects the significant contents and the royal source, this is a commercial document of considerable length--and, as such, it is something rarely seen in the marketplace. Spanish documents from this period that become available for sale are almost all formulaic carta executoria manuscripts, so-called "grants of nobility" (but, in fact, verifications of nobility, obtained, by those with the means to do so, to prove that one's lineage has no trace of peasant, Jewish, or Moorish blood and that one should therefore by law be exempted from taxation). By contrast, the present document grants certain rights and privileges and deals with taxation and other regulations related to commerce in and around the agricultural town of Meco, located between Madrid and Guadalajara. In addition to this extensive document on vellum with many signatures (but not signed by Philip IV), there is included here a second, seven-page, document on paper. Also relating to Meco, this was written out 73 years later and does contain a royal signature, that of Philip V, the great-grandson of Philip IV. In addition--and perhaps most important--this grouping contains the lead seal of Philip IV, approximately 90 mm. in diameter and as heavy as the weightiness of a royal pronoucement suggests it should be. There is a braided cord extending from the bottom of the vellum document, so it is possible that the seal had previously been attached, but it is just as likely that someone has simply added it to related material. Excluding the carta executoria, Spanish royal documents from this period are not common in the marketplace, especially substantial items of central concern to community well-being like this one, and lead seals are quite rare (we were able to trace just a single such item, attached to a carta executoria issued by Philip V).

The first Arabic-Latin edition of the great poem "Lamiyat al-´Agam" by Hassan ibn ´Ali al-Tugra'i (c. 1061-1121), and one of the first Arabic books ever printed in England: "a complaint over the unfortunate circumstances of his times and over his own lot" (cf. GAL). Contains not only the text with an extensive commentary, but also a complete index of the words appearing in the poem and the apparatus, as well as a second part, an Arabic prosody by Samuel Clarke entitled "Scientia metrica & rhythmica, seu Tractatus de prosodia Arabica" (also issued separately, but here forming part of the Tugrai edition). Edward Pococke (1604-91) was the first scholar of Arabic at Oxford; the Oxford oriental scholar Samuel Clarke (1624-69) also served his University as printer. - Variously browned due to paper.

        Vervarelyke schip-breuk van 't Oost-Indisch jacht Ter Schelling, onder het landt van Bengale; ... beneffens een bondige beschryving der Koningryken van Arrakan, Bengale, Martavan, Tanassery, ... Den vyfden druk doorgaens met platen verciert.Harderwijk, Jan Rampen, 1722. 4to. With 18 woodcut illustrations plus 1 repeat. Modern half vellum.

      Landwehr & V.d. Krogt, VOC 422 note; STCN (1 copy); Tiele, Bibl. note; WorldCat (2 copies, incl. 1 the same). Extremely rare fifth edition, the second illustrated with woodcuts, of a popular account of the story of the East Indiaman Ter Schelling, which was wrecked off the coast of Bengal. The author, a member of the crew, kept a journal of his experiences, and the 18 woodcuts illustrate the crew's adventures both at sea and on land. The ship left Batavia with 85 men and about 28 canons under captain Jacob Jansz. Stroom on 3 September 1661 and came within sight of Bengal on 8 October. They wrecked on a sandbank off shore, however, and had to make rafts to travel further, 32 of them managing to reach an uninhabited island. Van der Heyden describes the crew's desperate hunger, when they were tempted even to eat a worm-filled human corpse. They survived on turtles, snakes, iguana and occasionally rotten buffalo meat. By chance they reached mainland Bengal in the middle of the region's greatest war (1660-1662), so once ashore they were conscripted into the enormous Mogul army to fight against the kingdom of Assam, said to be cannibals. The gruesome massacre of captives by the Nabob is described and illustrated. Following the story of the voyage are descriptions of the kingdoms of Arrakan, Martaban, Tanassery, Bengala and Patan along the coast of the Bay of Bengal from modern Bangladesh to Burma.Though all editions are rare, those with woodcut illustrations aimed at a lower market seems to be the rarest.Slightly browned throughout, a minor dampstain in the inner margin of the foot of the title-page and a tiny dampstain in the lower outer corner throughout. A good copy of a very rare edition of a gripping true-life adventure story.

        Viaggi di Pietro della Valle il pellegrino. Venice, Paolo Baglioni, 1661-1664.

      1661. 12mo. 4 vols. (40), 670 pp. (2) ff. (1 blank), 734, (34) pp., (2) ff. (1 blank), 792, (18) pp. 756, (24) pp. Contemp. limp vellum with ms. spine titles; all edges of vol. 2 sprinkled in red. Early duodecimo reprint edition of Della Valle's complete "Viaggi", published while the first complete edition was still under the press. Della Valle's account is highly sought after as one of the earliest printed sources for the early history of Dibba, the coastal region at the northeastern tip of the United Arab Emirates, today ruled by the Emirates of Fujairah and of Sharjah. - Pietro della Valle (1586-1652) left Venice in 1614 on a pilgrimage to Palestine, proceeding to Baghdad and then into Persia, where he married and sojourned in the court of Shah Abbas. While staying with the Sultan of Bandar Abbas, he "met the son of the ruler of Dibba who was visiting. From this he learned that Dibba had formerly been subject to the kingdom of Hormuz, but was at that time loyal to the Safavids who in 1623 sent troops to Dibba, Khor Fakkan and other ports on the southeast coast of Arabia in order to prepare for a Portuguese counter-attack following their expulsion from Hormuz (Jarun). In fact, the Portuguese under Ruy Freire were so successful that the people of Dibba turned on their Safavid overlords, putting them all to death, whereupon a Portuguese garrison of 50 men was installed at Dibba. More Portuguese forces, however, had to be sent to Dibba in 1627 as a result of an Arab revolt. Curiously, two years later the Portuguese proposed moving part of the Mandaean population of southern Iraq, under pressure from neighbouring Arab tribes, to Dibba" (UAE History: 2000 to 200 years ago - UAEinteract, online). "Della Valle displayed excellent narrative and descriptive skills, powers of acute observation, and a genuinely scholarly breadth of learning. He refused to comment on what he had not witnessed himself or checked against the best authorities" (Gurney). He continued his travels east to the coast of India, Goa and Muscat, and thence back to Aleppo by way of Basra. He reached Rome in 1626, where the original Italian text of his letters written to the Neapolitan physician Mario Schipano was published. Only the first volume, dealing with Turkey, saw print during his lifetime. The two-part volume II on Persia was released in 1658, four years after his death; in 1662 the Turkey volume saw a second edition, and the set was concluded in 1663 with the volume on India. A single-volume English translation of the Indian travels appeared in 1665. - Occasional slight brownstaining, otherwise fine. Röhricht 947, p. 238. Tobler 95. Weber II, 251.

Auquel est adjouté une petite table fort exacte, pour connoitre en un instant à quel tiltre les marchands orphevres de Paris, & les autres dans toutes les principalles villes presque de toute l'Europe, travaillent l'or & l'argent. Paris, C. Lambin, 1661.

      1661. 4to. (12), 112 pp. With engr. portrait frontispiece of Anne Marie Louise d'Orleans and numerous pretty woodcut initials and tailpieces. Contemp. richly gilt calf, leading edges and spine gilt (tiny defect to upper spine-end and hinge). Marbled pastedowns. First edition of this rare work on precious stones and pearls found in the East and West Indies, written by a Parisian "marchand orphèvre". Dedicated to "La Grande Mademoiselle" Anne Marie Louise d'Orléans, Duchess of Montpensier and niece of Louis XIII, with her finely engraved portrait by L. Boissevin (which, according to Graesse, is frequently lacking). This "very early, and important treatise on gemstones, gold & silver" (Sinkankas) includes a chapter dedicated exclusively to pearls, a subject with which the author was especially familiar (cf. ibid.), and the Persian Gulf is stated as one of the main locations of pearl fishing: "on pesche les perles en divers endroits du monde. Dans le Golfe Persique, principalement aux environs de l'Isle d'Ormus & Bassora: aupres de Baroyn [i.e., Bahrain], Catiffa, Iuffa, Camaron, & autres lieux de ce Golfe [...]" (p. 74). "The first chapter attempts to reconcile differing views of various writers, as cited by Berquen, on the origin of gemstones and precious metals, with following chapters taking up the principal gemstones, and some minor ones, as diamond, sapphire, topaz, ruby, spinel, emerald, amethyst, aquamarine, hyacinth, opal, chrysolite, iris, vermeille, garnets, carnelian, turquoise, quartz varieties, pearl, coral and amber, and lastly, a chapter on gold and silver [...] Both [the first and the second edition] are rare" (Sinkankas, p. 97f.). - Insignificant waterstain and occasional slight worming, mainly confined to upper margin. A good copy in an elaborately decorated contemporary French binding. Sinkankas 592. Sabin 4957. Brunet VI, 4780. Graesse I, 348. Ferguson II, 295 (note). Cf. Duveen 71 (1669 second ed.).

        Grammatica linguae persicae. Auctore patre fratre Ignatio à Jesu carmelita discalcato missionario, & vicario residentiae Tripolis, & Montis Libani. Rome, typis Sacrae Congregationis de Propaganda Fide, 1661.

      1661. Small 4to. (2), 60 pp. Modern contemporary-style ivory vellum, handwritten title on spine. Extremely rare first edition of this valuable Persian grammar printed in Rome on the presses of the "Propaganda Fide". The third work of this kind, preceded only by those of Louis de Dieu (Leiden 1639) and of Greaves (London 1649). Willems notes that G. B. Raimondi, as early as 1614, produced a grammar in Rome for the use of missionaries which remained virtually unknown in the west, but this existed only in manuscript. The grammars of Greaves and of the present author were both "largely based on De Dieu" (Smitskamp). - Ignazio di Gesù (Carlo Leonelli) was a 17th century Italian missionary. He "belonged to the Order of Discalced Carmelites, and preached the Gospel in Turkey, Asia Minor, Armenia, and Persia, where he stayed over a long period. He especially tried to convert to the Catholic faith the so-called sectarians of Saint John (in eastern Mendaï). He returned to Rome in 1650" (cf. Hoefer). An account of his travels was included in the collection of Thevenot. His present small work, though not the work of an orientalist nor indeed a scholar, is still a true grammar based on elements collected during the author's journeys. - Some light foxing and browning as common, slight abrasion on title (vignette very slightly affected), lacks final blank leaf. Old library shelfmark in ink to title. A very good copy. Brunet III, 405. Schwab 863. Smitskamp 310 c.

      London: Printed by J.G., for Rich. Marriot, 1661. Third edition. First 8 words of title are engraved within a cartouche of dolphins and fish, 10 small copperplate engravings of fish in text, 2 pages (214-215, P3v-P4r) of words and music for "The Angler's Song," the bass voice printed upside down, 3 woodcut initials and head and tail ornaments. Pp. [16], 1-255, [256, blank], [16]. 1 vols. Small 8vo (140 x 88 mm). Old calf, spine gilt with red morocco label, edges stained red. Joints tender, old staining along foot of upper board. Trimmed close, affecting a few catchwords and headline. Fresh, attractive copy. Bookplates. Folding calf-back clamshell box. Third edition. First 8 words of title are engraved within a cartouche of dolphins and fish, 10 small copperplate engravings of fish in text, 2 pages (214-215, P3v-P4r) of words and music for "The Angler's Song," the bass voice printed upside down, 3 woodcut initials and head and tail ornaments. Pp. [16], 1-255, [256, blank], [16]. 1 vols. Small 8vo (140 x 88 mm). A superior copy of this Walton, first published in 1653. The first four editions - there were five in his lifetime - remained anonymous. This third is a virtual reprint of the second edition, with an interesting alteration, however, to the final remark of Piscator on p. 255: "And [St. Peter's blessing] upon all that are lovers of Vertue, and all that love to be quiet, and go a fishing. 'Study to be quiet, I Thess. 4.11'". It is also in the introduction to this edition that Walton first used what became his signature phrase, "I have laid aside business, and gone a-fishing." Along with several small textual changes, the John 21.3 quotation has been removed from the title-page and the "C" of "Complete" in the running headlines are now all similar. "The Lawes of Angling" here are added for the first time, printed in gothic type. The third edition was reissued in 1664, the only difference being in the substituton of a new title-page. [Bound with:] The Compleat Angler. Being Instructions how to angle for Trout or Grayling in a clear stream. Part II [by Charles COTTON],1676. [6], 104 pp. Wing C-6381 [And with:] VENABLES, Robert. The Experienc'd Angler: or, Angling Improv'd. Being a General Discourse of Angling. London: B.W. for B. Tooke, 1683. 8vo. Engraved title. Fifth edition. Wing V-186. Cotton's now-famous extension of Walton into the realm of fly-fishing was first published in 1676 (issued separately and as part of the fifth edition of Walton, the 'Universal Angler') and has ever thereafter been an integral part of the book. The present copy in a near contemporary binding, joins Cotton's text with Walton and Venables to form a unique variation on 'Universal Angler'.

        THE COMPLETE ( COMPLEAT ) ANGLER OR THE CONTEMPLATIVE MAN'S RECREATION. Being a discourse of rivers, fish-ponds, fish and fishing. To which is added the laws of angling: with a new table of the particulars in this book.

      London, printed by J. G[rismond]. for Rich. Marriot, 1661. THIRD EDITION MUCH ENLARGED 1661. Small 8vo, approximately 150 x 90 mm, 5¾ x 3½ inches, FACSIMILE TITLE PAGE, 10 small copperplate engravings of fish in the text, attributed to Pierre Lombart, 2 pages of the words and music to "The Anglers Song" set by Henry Lawes, the second page printed upside down to facilitate part singing, pages: [16], 255, [17], collation A-S8, bound in full brown modern morocco, double ruled gilt border to covers with decorative blind border inside, gilt rules and decoration between raised bands to spine, gilt lettered red morocco label, new endpapers. Pages very lightly-age browned, some margins slightly trimmed, just shaving running title a couple of times, occasional light brown mark in lower margins, small piece torn from 1 top corner with loss of page number (no doubt because wrongly numbered 78 instead of 87), final page of index browned in the margins. A very good clean copy (lacking original title page as noted). "A Short Discourse by way of Post-script, touching the Lawes of Angling" printed in black letter begins the final unpaginated section on S1r, followed by the Contents Table and the Index. Except for a few changes the third edition is identical with the second edition. The commendatory verses by Alexander Brome are omitted, and the chapter on the "Lawes of Angling" is for the first time included. The publisher Marriott transferred some copies of the sheets of the third edition to Simon Gape who provided them with a new title page with his name and dated 1664, but of course otherwise identical to the edition of 1661. Copies of these are scarce and are usually known as the 1664 third edition. As we are lacking the title page we cannot say whether ours is the 1661 third or the Gape third, at all events ours was certainly printed in 1661.

        La Première [seconde] partie des Conférences académiques et oratoires, sur toutes sortes de sujets problématiques, utiles et agréables, accompagnées de leur décision. Où l'on voit l'usage des plus belles maximes de la philosophie et des plus beaux préceptes de l'éloquence. Dédiées à Monseigneur Fouquet Procureur général, Sur-Intendant des Finances et ministre d'Estat. Par I. D. S. escuyer, sieur de Richesource, moderateur de l'Académie.

      A Paris chez l'Autheur 1661-1662 2 parties en 1 vol. in-4 de (26)-597-(1) pp. erreurs de pagination sans manque, veau brun granité, dos orné à nerfs, double filet doré d'encadrement sur les plats, tranches jaspées (reliure de l'époque). Tête de série de la revue fondée par Jean Oudart dit de la Sourdière, seigneur de Richesource (1616-1694). La première partie comprend les conférences 1 à 22, la deuxième les conférences 23 à 44. Vendues séparément dès 1660, les 44 premières conférences furent réunies une première fois en 1661 par leur auteur sous un titre général à l'adresse de Paris, rue de la Huchette, privilège du 20 mars 1661. Cette deuxième édition publiée la même année (privilège du 10 avril 1661) reprend les 44 conférences remaniées avec des changements dans les dédicaces. La publication régulière des séances s'acheva en 1666 et compte 88 conférences. Richesource avait institué ses conférences en 1653 à l'instar de celles que Théophraste Renaudot avait organisées au Bureau d'Adresse de 1633 à 1642. Les discours prononcés dans les séances du lundi furent imprimés mais des contrefaçons induisirent Richesource à prendre un privilège qui lui permit de réunir en recueil les livraisons de l'année écoulée. A partir de la quatrième livraison, le sujet des conférences ultérieures est annoncé. Par la suite seront généralement indiqués les auteurs des questions parmi lesquels Le Tellier, Filleau, de Cailly, Du Bordage, Saint-Gilles, Perrachon, Prioreau, l'abbé de Visé, le chevalier de Saint-Philbert, le vicomte de Montaigu, les marquis de Cany, de Sorgues eet de Magneux. Quelques orateurs parmi lesquels le jeune Fléchier se signalent par la fréquence de leurs interventions. Ainsi différentes questions touchant le plus souvent à la morale sont débattues contradictoirement : la toute première conférence porte su ce thème si la vie civile est préférable à la vie rustique. Bien des motifs apparaissent qui se retrouveront peu d'années après chez La Rochefoucauld, La Fontaine, Molière et La Bruyère. Titre-fontispice répété en tête de la deuxième partie. La collection comprend 88 Conférences dont la publication s'échelonne entre 1660 et 1665. Restauration à la reliure. Galeries de ver marginales sur les trois premières conférences avec perte de quelques lettres. Galeries de ver marginales atteignant le te xte des trois premières conférences. Cioranescu III, 59546 ; Sgard I, 216 : « Document précieux pour l'histoire des mentalités, les Conférences académiques aident surtout à mieux comprendre ce qui constitue pour notre littérature classique son horizon d'attente ».
