HERBERT (Thomas)
1663Paris, Jean Du Puis, 1663, in 4 de 1 page de titre, 2 ff. n. ch., 632 pp., 12 ff., trace d'humidité dans l'angle inférieur sur l'ensemble de l'ouvrage, reliure usagée d'époque plein veau marbré, dos à nerfs. Armes du Collège d'Harcourt sur les plats, lettres H frappées sur le dos entre les nerfs. Édition originale de la traduction française de Wicquefort, qui est souvent citée y compris par les auteurs étrangers comme la plus juste. Thomas Herbert fut envoyé auprès de Dormer Cotton en ambassade en Perse par Charles 1er en 1634. On a toujours regardé son ouvrage comme l'un des meilleurs ; et avant que celui de Chardin parût, il passait pour le plus exact sur ce qui concernait la Perse. (Brunet, III, 109). Les ouvrages dont le prix est supérieur à 35 euros vous seront envoyés par colissimo avec suivi, et remis contre signature.

PATIN (Charles)
[Paris: 1663]. Engraved title by Chauveau, engraved dedication to Charles Le Brun, 249 leaves engraved with coins. Oblong 8vo. Newly bound in tan goatskin, the covers with a blind fillet border and panel, the spine divided into six panels, lettered in the second and dated at the foot, the others tooled with a blind ornament, plain endleaves and edges. The title and dedication leaf have been closely trimmed at the foot with slight loss, and a few of the plates are rather closely trimmed at the head to just within the plate marks. There is some occasional light browning and soiling but it is a good copy. There is a 2pp manuscript index at the end and one of the plates has a coin added in brown ink into two of the blank roundels. The volume came from the library at Woburn Abbey, though there are now no marks of provenance. The book illustrates the ancient coins that were part of the collection of Fulvio Orsini. One of the leaves has been printed with two plates, and all the others have only one plate (displaying a varying number of coins). Comparing this copy with the Earl of Pembroke's and William Roscoe's copies it is evident that there were a number of different issues of this book published in 1663.

DOCUMENTO MANUSCRITO. SIGLO XVII. FARIÑAS DE CORRAL, Macario
Ronda, 1663.- 14 hojas, manuscritas las diez primeras y en blanco las dos últimas; 4º menor (21,5 cm.); Cuadernillo cosido con fino cordel.- Tiene una mancha en la cubierta o portada por la parte externa superior, pero no afecta texto en absoluto; se repite de forma menguante en las tres hojas siguientes. Aunque la tinta es color sepia, está firme y ofrece una buena lectura con caligrafía fácil y cuidada. Buen papel blanco y muy bien conservado. Macario Fariñas del Corral (1603-1663) fue un escritor, pintor e historiador de Ronda, cuya obra escrita más importante es la que ofrecemos en este manuscrito. Existen otras tres copias manuscritas de esta misma obra, que nosotros sepamos, a saber, una en la Biblioteca Nacional del siglo XVIII, otras dos en la Real Academia de la Historia, siendo una de ellas de 1762, encontrada entre los papeles de Antonio Delgado, y la otra de fecha no muy posterior de José Cornide. También se han publicado ya en el siglo veinte un par de ediciones facsímiles a partir de los manuscritos ya citados. El ejemplar que ofrecemos bien puede ser el original, escrito por el autor de su puño y letra y del que se han extraído las copias posteriores, ya que en ninguna parte de la obra se indican otros datos que los referidos en la descripción bibliográfica que se ofrece y algunas correcciones y tachaduras denotan que se escribió por primera vez.

PATIN, Charles
Jean du Bray & Pierre Variquet, Paris, 1663. With engraved vignette on title and the famous portrait of "Monsieur Charles Patin" by Claude Lefebvre, French painter and etcher. Contemporary full calf, slightly warped and somewhat worn; first and last leaves browned around the edges, small waterstain on last blank and paste-down, text in excellent condition. First edition of this very rare treatise describing the use of peat as a fuel. The author discusses the varieties and sources of combustible peat used to make charcoal as well as many useful by-products in agriculture, cooking and botany. At the time, charcoal was believed to mainly consist of bitumen and sulpher, causing strong fumes, which Patin was much opposed to because of his concern with dangers of health caused by inhalation. Proficient in metallurgy, Patin was an early advocate of ecology, with his knowledge that strong organic matter accumulates in the ground and gives rise to significant drops in mineral contents, causing many problems for plant growth. At the end of the book is a proposal of the Sieur de Chambre for the artificial production of peat bogs surrounding Paris along with royal letter patent for a thirty year process.Patin (1633-1693), the gifted son of Gui Patin, by the age of 23 completed his law studies and received his M.D. degree. He taught anatomy and pathology at the medical school of Paris, but was obliged to leave France for fear of imprisonment for circulation of certain libels which drew upon him the resentment of the court. He traveled extensively, finally settling in Padua, Italy, where … [Click Below for Full Description]

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]

(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.

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.

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]
