NICERON, Jean François / MERSENNE, Marin
Paris: Jean du Puis/Widow of Langlois, 1663. Scarce edition of this important treatise on perspective by the most scientifically rigorous of 17th-century French theorists, of particular interest for its contention that “the illustrations to earlier treatises were often defective” (Millard), thus making it the first work on the subject to treat the problem of didactic illustration in a deliberate and self-conscious manner. A comprehensive textbook, Book I gives basic geometrical definitions and an introduction to perspective construction; Book II treats simple and deformed perspective—namely, the curved or irregular surfaces found in vaulted ceilings, niches etc., and examines the necessary surface distortion (anamorphosis) to bring a picture painted on such a surface into perspective; Book III deals with more complex cases of anamorphosis, such as reflections on flat, cylindrical and conical surfaces; and Book IV covers the use of dioptrics for placing figures on flat surfaces. The sections of books II and III dealing with anamorphosis were particularly important, whether in Niceron’s own practice as a painter or for later artists or theorists (see the chapter on Niceron in Baltrušaitis), and according to Mahoney (DSB), the discussion of refraction in Book IV possibly contains “the first published reference to Descartes’ derivation of the law of refraction” (X.104). The work first appeared in French in 1638; reprinted in 1646 and 1651, in the latter with the first appearance of Mersenne’s treatise. This edition is a second edition of that reprint.* Millard French, 124 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Merian, the father of engraver Matthäus the younger, and the grandfather of the painter, engraver and naturalist Maria Sibylla Merian, was born in Basel Switzerland. After a period when he visited and lived in Nancy (France), Paris and Stuttgart, and after working for Theodore de Bry for a while, he married in 1618 and settled in Frankfurt. From here he issued a great many engravings including various topographical series accompanied by text by Martin Zeiler, which together form an invaluable record of Europe during the first half of the sixteenth century. The present work, published in Amsterdam at the time of and shortly after Merian's death, is a Dutch-language version of Zeiler and Merian's Topographia Galliae, oder Beschreibung und Contrafaitung der vornehmbsten und bekantisten Oerter in...Frankreich . first published in Frankfurt between 1655 and 1661.

Cotin, Charles (Abbé)
Paris: Estienne Loyson, 1663. Livre. Très bon. Plein Vélin. Ed. originale. In-12.

(table), frontispice, exemplaire réemboîté dans une reliure en plein vélin ivoire de l'époque. Edition originale. Charles Cotin est le Trissotin des Femmes savantes de Molière, et cette édition est la première où le sonnet et le madrigal lus à la scène III, 2 de cette pièce sont publiés simultanément (cf. BOURQUI, Les Sources de Molière, pp. 334-346). Au-delà des attaques de Molière, dont Cotin ne se remit jamais, et de la querelle avec Boileau, il convient de réhabiliter l'oeuvre littéraire de cet abbé mondain, académicien et polyglotte (il parlait l'hébreu et le syriaque). Antoine ADAM, dans son Histoire de la littérature française du XVIIe siècle (t II pp. 569-571), précise que "c'était un caractère détestable, avec beaucoup plus de talent qu'on ne croit (...) ses oeuvres mêlées en 1659, ses oeuvres galantes en 1663 furent parmi les publications importantes de cette période. Il y appararaît, tout au contraire de ce que beaucoup imaginent, comme un défenseur de la saine tradition contre les progrès de la galanterie coquette et précieuse. Il détestait Ménage, Pellisson, Mlle de Scudéry. Il se moquait des fausses pudeurs des précieuses, il applaudissait aux Précieuses ridicules et annonçait une prochaine pièce de Molière sur Ménage hypercritique. Il condamnait les pointes, il le fai … [Click Below for Full Description]

This is followed by two more paragraphs of information. Printing data reads as follows, "LONDON, Printed for G. Bedell and T. Collins, and are to be sold at their Shop at the Middle-Temple-Gate in Fleetstreet, M: DC: LXIII." This is the one volume edition, with only the date of 1663 listed in the text.

The exterior of the book has five spine ribs and a bronze gilt stamped title label. At its bottom appears the date 1673, I presume this to be the date at which it was placed in this binding.

MELLO, D. Francisco Manuel de].

Woodcut initial. Phrase of about five or six words scored on verso of title-page, causing some damage to the paper. In good condition; otherwise very good to fine. Some light, minor spotting. (16 ll.). A-D4. *** FIRST EDITION of this pamphlet in defense of the independence of Portugal. D. Francisco not only led a romantic and adventurous life but established himself as a major figure in Portuguese and Spanish literature, ranking with Quevedo among seventeenth-century Iberian writers. Born into the highest Portuguese nobility, he began both his military and literary careers at the age of 17. Shipwrecked near St. Jean de Luz in 1627 while sailing with a Hispano-Portuguese armada protecting an American treasure fleet (he was forced to supervise the burial of more than 2,000 who perished), he was sent with the Conde de Linhares to quell the Évora insurrection in 1637, fought in the battle of the Downs in 1639, and the following year took part in the campaign against the Catalan rebels. In 1640, suspected of favoring an independent Portugal, he was thrown into a Spanish jail. Only a few years later (1644), when he returned to Portugal, he was imprisoned in turn by D. João IV, some said on a charge of murder, others said because he was D. João's rival for a lady's affections. The year 1655 saw him deported to Bahia, but in 1658 he was pardoned, recalled from exile, and sent on t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rare first edition of Simon van Leeuwen's edition of the Corpus Iuris, the fundamental collection of Roman law, complete with all parts (and with the influential commentary of Denis Godefoy, 1549-1621, printed in minute typeface around the main text). The edition is justly celebrated both as a scholarly achievement and in particular as a truly superb piece of 17th century printing (both in Latin and Greek types). "Le Corpus iuris publié par Louis et Daniel (Elzevir) avec le concours des deux principaux éditeurs du temps, J. Blaeu et Fr. Hackius, est peut-être le plus beau livre qui soit sorti des presses elzeviriennes d Amsterdam. Cette édition enfin est restée la plus belle de cet ouvrage" (Willems); "It is perhaps the finest work issued by the Amsterdam presses." (Goldsmid in reference to the joint ventures of the Elzevirs, Blaeu and Hackius) Graesse III, 503; Willems 1299; Goldsmid 1140; Spangenberg 466
