BACON, SIR FRANCIS
London: Printed for R.H. and H.B., 1661, 1661. First edition. Gibson 232; Wing B-302; ESTC R3667. Very good copy.. 4to, modern light brown calf, brown paper boards, gilt lettering. George Villiers (1592-1628) was made a royal favorite of King James in 1616, and shortly after became the first Duke of Buckingham and one of the most influential men in England. Francis Bacon (1561-1626), himself no stranger to the uses and abuses of power and royal favorites, wrote this epistolary essay to Buckingham on character and civil government. He begins with some generalizations e.g.: "A false friend is more dangerous than an open Enemy," and some specifics: "It is true that the whole Kingdom hath cast their eye upon you, as the new rising Star, and no man thinks his business can prosper at Court, unless he hath you for his good Angel." Bacon then proposes five rules for Buckingham to observe in his new position. Within a few years, Bacon was created Lord Chancellor and Viscount St. Alban, with Buckingham's help. Extensively underlined in ink by an early if not contemporary reader; some annotations on the title-page and in the margins in presumably he same hand, most of which have been trimmed by the binder, who otherwise spared the margins. Large armorial bookplate of Fairfax of Cameron on the front paste-down, over which is tipped a bookseller's catalogue description. Bookplate of Nicholas Wall, with the motto "Sometime his book," on the rear paste-down.

He was a descendant, direct or collateral, of Rowland Taylor the martyr, but the exact line of descent has never been proved. On 27 Jan. 1661 Taylor was consecrated in St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin, with eleven other prelates. The whole Irish hierarchy seems to have been present; but Henry Jones, D.D. [q. v.], who had drawn blood with Cromwell's army in his republican days, was not permitted to join in the imposition of hands.

BERQUEN, Robert de.
Alden & Landis 661/14 (7 copies, some possibly 2nd issue); GSabin 4957; Sinkankas 592 note. First edition, first issue, of a rare work on precious stones and pearls found in what the title calls the East and West Indies (but including the Gulf region), written by a Paris "marchand orphevre". It is most important for the author's new information on diamonds, pearls and pearl fishing, this last with considerable detail on the various pearl fishing sites in the Gulf. The book is dedicated to Anne Marie Louise d'Orléans, Duchess of Montpensier and first cousin of Louis XIV. The extensive chapter devoted to pearls and pearl fishing notes the Persian Gulf as the most important source and names specific sites: "on pesche les perles en divers endroits du monde. Dans le Golfe Persique, principalement aux environs de l'Isle d'Ormus [= Hormuz] & Bassora [= Basra]: aupres de Baroyn [= Bahrain][,] Catiffa [= Qatif], Juffa [or Jafu?], Camaron [= Gamron/Bandar Abbas], & autres lieux de ce Golfe ..." (p. 74). "Very early, and important treatise on gemstones, gold & silver, ..." (Sinkankas).With marginal worm holes mostly at the head but slightly affecting the running head or first line of text in a few leaves, occasional marginal water stains, but otherwise in very good condition. Hinge slightly damaged, a few small worm holes and small tears in the spine and a few scrapes and scratches, but otherwise good. First edition of an important work on gems and pearls, especially interesting for pearl fishing in the Gulf, in an attractive French binding.

Belle édition imprimée par les frères Elzevier de cet ouvrage historique et pédagogique, l'un des plus importants livres consacrés au premier roi Bourbon, source de nombreux biographes de ce monarque. Willems indique l'existence de « deux éditions également jolies de ce livre sous la date de 1661 » (page 323) possédant des caractéristiques bien distinctes cependant. Notre exemplaire répond aux critères de celle que Willems donne pour être la première édition. Homme d'église et de lettres, Hardouin de Beaumont de Péréfixe (1606-1671) fut successivement évêque de Rodez et archevêque de Paris. Il entra à l'Académie française en 1654 au fauteuil de Guez de Balzac. Richelieu puis Mazarin lui confièrent la tâche de précepteur de Louis XIV. Ce livre fut entrepris à la demande même du roi : L'action particulière que le Roi m'a toujours témoignée pour la vie de son aïeul Henri le Grand, et la déclaration qu'il a faite, si souvent, qu'il voulait se le proposer comme son modèle, m'ont hâté de mettre au net cette partie de mon travail.

Rarissime édition originale qui faisait défaut à plusieurs grandes collections moliéristes dont celle de Charles Hayoit. Cette comédie représentée pour la première fois en juin 1661 au Théâtre du Palais-Royal, en un temps ou Molière n'était pas encore ni un auteur reconnu ni un comédien de la Cour, son succès parisien changea son destin. La troupe devait jouer cette pièce devant Fouquet à Vaux-le-Vicomte puis devant le roi à Fontainebleau. Bel exemplaire dans une parfaite reliure de Hardy-Mesnil. Tchémerzine.

BOYLE Robert (1627-1691)
ADRIANUM VLACQ. Legatura coeva in piena pelle con fregi in oro al dorso; tagli spruzzati; mancanza delle carte di guardia anteriori. 40 pagine non numerate compreso il frontespizio; 495-(1 bianca) pagine numerate; 1 tavola finale incisa fuori testo e più volte ripiegata raffigurante apparecchiature scientifiche. Seconda edizione latina, la prima ad Oxford nel 1661, entrambe basate sulla prima in assoluto in inglese del 1660, in cui l'autore descrive la pompa ad aria o "pneumatical engine". Boyle, fu il più noto scienziato inglese del suo tempo e il più grande scienziato sperimentale della metà del XVII secolo. Anche se il primo interesse scientifico di Boyle era la chimica, questo è il primo lavoro scientifico pubblicato dall'autore sulla pneumatica, quello che ha accertato la sua fama dando origine alla celebre "legge di Boyle". Il testo è noto anche come "primavera e peso dell'aria" / Spring and weight of the air". L'opera ebbe continuazione in edizioni successive nel 1669 e 1680. Esemplare in buone condizioni, lievi sciupature alla legatura, qualche lieve arrossamento a poche pagine. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Mortier Peter (1661 - 1711) Amsterdam
Artist: Mortier Peter ( - 1711) Amsterdam; issued in: Paris; date: ca 1693. - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 60 x 80; - description: Map shows the total East Sea with the coasts of Sweden, Finnland, Russia, Estland, Lettland,Lithuania and Poland - 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 atl … [Click Below for Full Description]

NANTEUIL, Robert [1623 or 1630-1678].
1661. First State (of 2). Arthur Hind refers to Nanteuil as "the master of pure engraving" and "the undisputed head of the French school of portraiture". "At its best his work possesses a noble directness of expression and a complete freedom from all the attractive mannerisms by which a spurious reputation is so lightly gained." (Hind, A History of Engraving and Etching, p. 144) This print was made two years after Nanteuil's appointment as portrait engraver to Louis XIV. It was largely due to Nanteuil's influence that the King granted the edict of 1660 by which engraving was pronounced free and distinct from the mechanical arts, and engravers were declared to be entitled to the privileges of other artists. Nanteuil engraved portraits of many distinguished personages, including the King, Cardinal Richelieu and Queen Christina of Sweden. Le Tellier became Secretary of State for War in 1643 and Chancellor of France in 1677. He played a major role in transforming the French army into a much larger and more professional force dependent on the King, and helped draft the revocation of the Edict of Nantes which had granted a large measure of religious freedom to Protestants. The previous owner paid $1800 US plus premium at auction in 2000. Pettijean & Wickert 64. copper engraving. 334 x 254 mm. (sheet). signed in the plate. A good dark impression on laid paper with coat of arms watermark, trimmed at or just outside plate mark. (slight thin spots in left edge, mounting tape on verso).

BÖCKLER, Georg Andreas.
Nuremberg: Christoff Gerhard for Paul Fürst, 1661. First edition. First edition, an exceptionally fine copy in an untouched contemporary binding, of this superbly illustrated work with 154 plates of various types of powered mills and hydraulic machinery. "Here is another of the great 'machine' books with many beautiful engravings of gunpowder mills, saw mills, water raising devices, fire engines, roasting spits and so on. Böckler was a German architect and engineer interested in masses of gearing, complex workings, and devices that even by modern standards invite awe and admiration" (Hoover). The magnificent plates are of various types of motion drives powered by intricate systems of wheels employing water, wind, weights, horse power, human muscle, or some striking combinations of these. Plates 73 and 74 depict paper-making equipment and processes, which are "the clearest delineation of the art to this date" (Hunter, The Literature of Papermaking, page 18): they show the linen rags being pulped with water-powered hammers, while the vatman stands ready with a mould, the coucher presses the post, and the drying sheets hang on ropes above, ready to be sized, calendared, gathered into reams, and packaged. Plate 5 pictures a hand mill for making ink for copperplate printing. The last plate (no. 154) is extraordinary for its depiction of a fire engine water pump made by the Nuremberg inventor Hans Hautsch in 1658. The suction-and-force mechanism of Hautsch's clever device (described on pp. 60-1 of Böckler's text) enabled twenty-four men to raise water to a height of eighty to one … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ainsi écrit-il : "Je suis certain que la première partie d'une précieuse est l'esprit, et que pour porter ce nom il est absolument nécessaire qu'une personne en ait ou affecte de paraître en avoir, ou du moins qu'elle soit persuadée qu'elle en a . Les femmes d'esprit ne furent pas toutes précieuses, ce sont seulement celles qui se mêlent d'écrire ou de corriger ce que les autres écrivent, celles qui font leur principal de la lecture des romans et surtout celles qui inventent des façons de parler bizarres par leur nouveauté et extraordinaires dans leurs significations.

(). En Buenrretiro, a 9 de Mayo 1661.- Dos hojas in Folio (30 x 21 cm).- El rey hace un desarrollo a grandes rasgos de los hechos acaecidos en general durante los cuarenta años que ya lleva de reinado, está buscando una persona apropiada para escribir una historia verdadera de todo este periodo que sea fiel a la realidad y a los grandes esfuerzos que la monarquía española ha tenido que hacer ante tantos frentes políticos y militares, pero sobretodo para desmentir calumnias y falsedades que se vienen escribiendo en el extranjero, por ello nombra a Don Francisco Ramos del Manzano, Primer Conde de Francos, jurista y hombre de Estado que tuvo altos cargos y acabó entrando en la vida religiosa, para que con su erudición y conocimiento de leyes además de su experiencia como político se encargase de tarea tan importante. Por todo ello el contenido de este manuscrito resulta algo autobiográfico y bastante interesante. Está escrito en muy clara caligrafía, limpio y bien conservado.*; Libro en español

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

DOCUMENTO MANUSCRITO. SIGLO XVII. NOMBRAMIENTO DE DON FRANCISCO RAMOS DEL MANZANO PARA ESCRIBIR UNA HISTORIA DEL REINADO DE FELIPE IV. SEÑAL REAL DE FELIPE IV
Sin editorial. En Buenrretiro, a 9 de Mayo 1661.- Dos hojas in Folio (30 x 21 cm). Está escrito en muy clara caligrafía, limpio y bien conservado. El rey hace un desarrollo a grandes rasgos de los hechos acaecidos en general durante los cuarenta años que ya lleva de reinado, está buscando una persona apropiada para escribir una historia verdadera de todo este periodo que sea fiel a la realidad y a los grandes esfuerzos que la monarquía española ha tenido que hacer ante tantos frentes políticos y militares, pero sobretodo para desmentir calumnias y falsedades que se vienen escribiendo en el extranjero, por ello nombra a Don Francisco Ramos del Manzano, Primer Conde de Francos, jurista y hombre de Estado que tuvo altos cargos y acabó entrando en la vida religiosa, para que con su erudición y conocimiento de leyes además de su experiencia como político se encargase de tarea tan importante. Por todo ello el contenido de este manuscrito resulta algo autobiográfico y bastante interesante. Libro en español HISTORIA DEL SIGLO DE ORO ESPAÑOL [Attributes: Soft Cover]

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 in ODNB this is not listed amongst his works. In the Preface to this serio-comic work, published to coincide with 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 rea … [Click Below for Full Description]
