        - Scottish Peerage

      Scotland, 1665. Edinburgh, 23 December 1665. Manuscript letter dealing with land revenue for a Scottish Lord, scarcity of currency in Scotland, and a desperate circumstance of embezzlement on a West Indies ship with a cargo of cotton. The writer is unidentified, though he addresses Scottish politician Lord Cullenden (John Forbes, 3rd of Culloden 1609-1687). 8vo. 3 pages. Double leaf laid watermarked paper, measuring approximately 17,5 x 22,5 cm. Very good condition. Penned only fourteen years after the Wars of the Three Kingdoms, and twenty years after the Scottish Civil War, when the monarchy was ruled by Charles II, this letter reveals economic struggles of a reforming nation. Although a quiet era by comparison, money was scarce and people were heavily taxed, the writer evidently seeking to collect moneys for Lord Culloden. Several Scottish peers and politicians are named. The text also refers to early Scottish activity in the West Indies in connection with a corrupt politician in the Shetland Islands. Dating to the early years of "The Restoration" which returned the monarchy to Scotland in 1660, the writer is addressing John Forbes (1609-1687), 2nd Lord Culloden, MP and provost of Inverness. Forbes was the friend and supporter of Archibald Campbell, marquis of Argyle, and from his strong support of Presbyterian principles, he suffered much in the persecuting times during the reign of Charles II and his brother James. He was an active friend and supporter of the Revolution, and upon his death his estates were in consequence ravaged by the troops of Colonel Cannan and Major-general Buchan, who had assumed the command of James' army after the fall of Dundee. He was chosen as member of parliament for the shire of Elgin or Inverness, but refused to take the test on 10th February 1685, therefore could not take his seat. Having inherited the Culloden house from his father Duncan Forbes, he increased his fortune around the year 1670 with the purchases of the barony of Ferintosh and the estate of Bunchrew. His eldest son was Duncan Forbes of Culloden (1644-1704), a Scottish politician who was Commissioner for Nairnshire from 1702-1704, MP for Nairn and Inverness between 1678 and 1704), and heir to his estates. He was among the most active of those patriots who in Scotland contributed to bring about the expulsion of James II. On the death of his father in 1687, he succeeded to the family estates. The year after the revolution his estates at Culloden and Ferintosh were ravaged by the Jacobite hordes of Buchan and Cannon. The Scotch parliament met his claim for compensation by voting him a perpetual grant of a liberty to distil into spirits the grain of the barony of Ferintosh upon his paying a small specific composition in lieu of excise. The following Scottish peers and politicians are mentioned in the text: The corrupt Colonel William Sinclair, who was appointed Governor of Shetland in July 1665, in charge of Fort Charlotte at Lerwick, and who brought there two convicts from Dumfries, possibly as conscripts, or to aid in the construction of the castle being built at Bressay. In 1667 he as a Commissioner of Supply for Shetland. Sir William Purves of Woodhouselee, who became Solicitor General for Scotland in the reign of Charles II, was directed to inquire into the condition of the King's revenue. In 1667 his researches in this connection resulted in a folio volume of 71 pages. The question of the condition of the patrimony of the Crown possessed great interest for Sir William, and in 1681 he drew up a more elaborate account of the revenue, which is now held in the British Museum. [The IGI in a marriage entry records him as William Baronet Laird Fulford Purvess.] James Scott, 1st Duke of Monmouth (1649-1685), the eldest illegitimate son of Charles II, an English nobleman born in the Netherlands who entered the Peerage of Scotland when at the young age of 14 he was married to Anne Scott, 4th Countess of Buccleuch. James took his wife's surname upon marriage. The day after his marriage, the couple were made Duke and Duchess of Buccleuch, Earl and Countess of Dalkeith, and Lord and Lady Scott of Whitchester and Eskdale. In 1665, at the age of 16, Monmouth served in the English fleet under his uncle, the Duke of York, in the Second Anglo-Dutch War, returning in June 1666. He was beheaded in 1685. William Sharp of Stonyhill (circa 1621-1697), was keeper of the Scottish Signet in 1673, brother of Archbishop and politician James Sharp. He settled in Edinburgh, having an estate near Musselburgh and was knighted in 1669. [The Keeper of the Signet is one of the Great Officers of State of Scotland, and is one of the offices held by the Lord Clerk Register.] (late) Sir Alexander Durham of Pitkerrow, who was living in 1620, who was knighted by Charles II for his service in the English Civil War, and constituted Lord Lyon King at Arms. He died unmarried, bequeathing the lands of Largo to his nephew Francis, the son of his eldest brother James of Pitkerrow, one of the ministers of Glasgow. English politician Sir Stephen Fox (1627-1716) who served as MP for several terms for Salisbury, Wetsminster and Cricklade, and who was twice Paymaster of the Forces, a position in the British government which was established 1661 after the Restoration, and was responsible for part of the financing of the British Army. He was knighted in 1665, the year of this letter. Excerpts from the letter: "My dear Lord, My silence this day [....] was by reason of my borne great indisposition being then much more tormented then at anie tyme before with the chit and gravells, which yet doeth [...] to me though my pain (I thank God) go much abated." "After Christmas is over that I have recovered a little more strength I shall then vigorousle bestowe my selfe for your [...] satisfaction, & and according to success will find you an accompt of my endeavours..." "... I belive that Mr. William Sharp has given you an accompt of the moneys' he hath received from Sir William Purvess. I hope at candlemass there will be much brought in as may make... for your Lordship & your partner 4000 sterling [silver], for which there is some sufficient Bonds, given the pursuance of which shall not be neglected..." "... collected... it may be made current in the Country in a year His Majesty's rents, yours nor any subjects will be payed... nor are people able pay there annuall rents, nor doe other things of necessary use... so great is the scarecitie of money, that people from whom it is due doe offer [...] and cattle... cannot be made useful at present by [...] want of trading. I was in expectation to have received 300to strl: due to me upon accompt of the remainder of [...] owing in Sr Alexander Durham's tyme, butt all that I have gottin is 500 merks and Bond for the rest..." "... Tho as of late I have stirred little abroad yet I have heard fulle the great complaints brought in against Colonel Sinclair, both as to his carelessness in not presenting the trust reposed in him for the security of Shetland, and also for his great imbezling of the goods taken in the West India ship... and did take all the goods of greatest value and putt them aboard a Danish ship, and thereafter did suffer the person sent by my Lord Commissioner to go aboard the West India Ship, who found that the cotton which did lye formerly betwixt the decks was putt in the hold in place of those things that he had putt aboard for other ships, all particulars by the next will be sent you." "... the deposition of the Captain and Pylot of the ship, with some of the [...] & severall of his souldiers being examined upon oath, doeth make it obvious that if he hold [gripp?] he hath undoubtlessle putt himselfe in a most easie condition for the futur...." "The public letter sygned by My Lord Commissioner is most Grace & we will bring your Lordship a full and clear answer to Sir Stephen Fox proposall for the Duke of Munmuth's rents [Duke of Monmouth]. Adieu." End Excerpts. The pre-decimalisation British system of coinage was introduced by King Henry II. It was based on the troy system of weighing precious metals. The penny was literally one pennyweight of silver. A pound sterling thus weighed 240 pennyweights, or a pound of sterling silver. William Purves, 1st Baronet Purves of Purves Hall, Berwickshire Sir William was bred to the Scottish Bar. Before the Usurpation he held an Office in the Courts of Session and was one of the Clerks of the Committees of Parliament. He took an active part on the side of Royalty during the reign of Charles I and he suffered deeply in the cause, both in his person and in his property. For several years he was obliged to conceal himself and in 1656 when peace was restored under the Commonwealth he accepted (through necessity) a small Office in the Exchequer. In this situation he availed himself of the opportunity of being useful to the persecuted Royalists, although he never swerved from his fidelity as a Public Officer. Upon the Restoration of Charles II he was appointed His Majesty's Solicitor General for Scotland; he was afterwards knighted and elected Solicitor for the affairs of the Church of Scotland. In the same year he obtained a joint gift with the Earl (afterwards Duke) of Lauderdale of Wards and Marriages. He was created a Baronet of the Kingdom of Scotland in July 1665. Besides the lands of Abbeyhill, he appears to have been the proprietor of the lands of Woodhouselee and Fulford in the County of Edinburgh ["the ancient tower of Fulford, home of Sir David Purves, was repaired after the Civil Wars and its name changed to Woodhouselee, which it still retains" - The Scotsman's Library, P.534]; the lands of Purveshaugh near Earlston in Berwickshire; and the estates of Purves Hall in Berwickshire. The last he purchased from the family of Belches of Tofts. He also owned the estate of Lambden lying contiguous to Purves, purchased from Home of Kains; both these last are still in the family. The IGI in a marriage entry records him as "William Baronet Laird Fulford Purvess". . Very Good.

        Réflexions morales de Monsieur L.R. Foucaut

      - Paris, Barbin, 1665 In-12, 17ff-113+[5]pp-1ff Hauteur des marges : 131mm Exemplaire provenant de la bibliothèque d'Antoine Rochebilière, resté dans sa famille depuis. TRES RARE contrefaçon dont on ne connaît que très peu d'exemplaires, Claudin dans le catalogue Rochebilière ne donne que celui du catalogue (exemplaire Veinant, acheté en 1863 par Rochebilière). C'est le premier qui donne le nom de La Rochefoucauld, mal orthographié, dans l'ouvrage. Cette édition est restée longtemps inconnue des bibliophiles. L'exemplaire Veinant, semble-t-il mal décrit n'a pas donné lieu à une découverte, si ce n'est pour Rochebilière (voir ci-dessous). En revanche, dans le Bulletin du Bibliophile de janvier 1865 (pages 40 à 42, visible ici), un certain Ch Barry a découvert un exemplaire de cette édition qu'il décrit et indique qu'il ne correspond pas aux éditions citées par Brunet à la date de 1665. Avec l'exemplaire Veinant/Rochebilière, et l'exemplaire Rochebilière présenté ici, cela fait donc trois exemplaires connus. La BNF dispose d'un exemplaire, peut-être un quatrième? On l'indique parfois comme 4e tirage. Claudin en dit aussi : C'est évidemment une contrefaçon faite au fond de quelque province de France. Le texte de cette édition est un texte mixte car jusqu'à la maxime 228, c'est le texte primitif et à partir du milieu de cette maxime, c'est le texte des exemplaires cartonnés. Antoine Rochebilière était un spécialiste des éditions des Maximes de La Rochefoucauld, certainement le plus grand. Son catalogue contient 32 exemplaires (n°444 à 475), qui ne sont qu'une partie de ce qu'il possédait. Reliure plein veau, aux armes de France et de Chalons. Il semble que cet ouvrage ait été donné au collège de Chalons, qui faisait ce type de reliures. Manque aux coiffes et dos, mors en partie fendus, manques aux coins. Exemplaire modeste, il manque la page de titre mais le texte reste bien complet, mouillure atteignant une partie du texte sur la première moitié. Longue note de Rochebilière sur le contre-plat disant ""Ma conjecture était exacte. Je viens de voir cette édition [exemplaire Veinant]. Elle est intitulée Réflexions morales de L.R.Foucaut à Paris chez Claude Barbin vis à vis . de la croix 1665 avec privilège. Cette édition est celle-ci, je l'ai confrontée. Il ne manque à cet exempl. que le frontispice. Voyez le 2e catalogue de M Veinant Paris Potier 23 mars et jours suivants, 1863, in-8 n°92. Je l'ai confronté avec cet exemplaire à l'exposition. L'exemplaire de vente était réglé sans doute par . Veinant."" Et d'ajouter ""Je possède maintenant l'exemplaire même ci-dessus décrit"" Provenances : Antoine Rochebilière, avec une longue note sur le contre-plat (voir ci-dessus) Auguste Raffet, bibliothécaire, fils du peintre et gendre de Rochebilière. Signature sur le contre-plat Références : Rochebilière, 453; Tchémerzine, VII,53. Bel exemplaire, de très bonne provenance, rare. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        HISTOIRE NATURELLE ET MORALE DES ILES ANTILLES DE L'AMERIQUE

      Rotterdam, 1665. Forty-four copper plate engravings. Quarto. Old vellum. Vellum dust soiled, small portion of spine lacking. Occasional light foxing or toning. Bottom margin of one folding plate trimmed, slightly affecting explanation. Another folding plate neatly detached. Overall a very nice copy. The second French edition. This copy contains the armorial bookplates of Mathew Wilson and Frances Mary Richardson Currer. Currer (1785-1861) was a renowned British book collector who occasionally had privately printed catalogues of her collection produced. Her library, said to have been comprised of some 20,000 fine books, was sold through Sotheby's in 1862. "The books were all in choice condition, many with fine bindings....The books contain an heraldic book-plate, and are generally noticeable for their fine condition" - DNB. Mathew Wilson was Currer's grandfather or father (both were of the same name), of Eshton Hall, Yorkshire. This important work on the islands of the Caribbean, with interesting information on Florida, Georgia, and the Eskimos, was originally published in French in 1658, its main purpose being the encouragement of Huguenot emigration to America. Its greatest contribution was the impressive marshalling of contemporary information on the Caribbean islands, especially the French and British colonies developing as sugar plantations. However, Rochefort also includes a long account of an "Apalacite" kingdom of Indians said to exist in Florida and present- day Georgia, fanciful in its overall picture, but with some basis in fact. Besides this excursion, there is also a brief account of Greenland Eskimos, and one of the illustrations provides perhaps the best contemporary graphic image of both Eskimos and their garb. It is the Caribbean section, however, which is most significant, and therein are found detailed descriptions of the European settlement of the islands and their natural history, in perhaps the most useful single source of the century. Everett Wilkie has published a detailed article concerning this book, which supplies a wealth of detailed discussion of the book, its authors and text.

René Rapin (1621-1687), a Jesuit, wrote this work in imitation of Virgil's 'Georgics'. It is divided into four books, on the flower garden, parkland and trees, water, and the orchard. It is followed by a work in prose, a debate between the 'ancients' and 'moderns' on gardening styles, in which Rapin endorses the 'modern' style. This work enjoyed immense renown, and was translated into English by John Evelyn."On the threshold of this period the French garden found its earliest poets. René Rapin, the learned Jesuit who wrote so many books, published in 1665 a poem called 'Hortorum libri quattuor'. This was in undisguised imitation of Virgil's 'Georgics', but aimed at giving a supplement on the province of the garden, which the Roman poet had neglected. Rapin had already seen something of the development of gardens in the grand siècle, and this appears in much of what he wrote; but he chiefly concerns himself with the gardens of the time of Maria de Medici and Henry IV. All that he writes in his first book, 'The flower garden', is what is demanded by the usual theorists; and about flowers he only gives pretty myths in the style of Ovid. But in the second book he is inspired with new ideas, the exhaustive treatment of the park (nemus): he says that when you step out of the garden the park must at once appear as a stage formally arranged. The trees must be in the form of the quincunx, with straight lines and right angles, although he also likes slanting lines and circular arches in some places. All the paths have to be provided with fine sand or closely mown grass, and at the sides the beeches or cypresses have to be clipped so as to make straight walls, but the lighter branches may be worked into a thousand shapes and mazes of any kind. He is full of praise for the oak as a good forest tree, and he is emphatically opposed to the clipping of oaks, using all his rhetoric and calling down all mythological punishments upon the heads of the desecrators of trees. This care for the park and its cultivation is by no means unfamiliar in Renaissance times, but the close connection of its main design with that of the garden points to a period which is still to come. In the same way the third book, which treats of water, adhering to all the fantastic ideas of the Renaissance, rejoicing in every one of the innumerable water-devices, and demanding a great extension and development of cascades, does try most energetically to enforce strict regularity in the domain of water. It is admitted that tricks of teasing waters in grottoes, and pumice and shells for decoration, are all wonderful attractions for the people on festival days; but anyone who is sensible, large-minded and thoughtful is fond of great sheets of water, and canals like rivers: it is to sing of these that his lyre shall be strung" (Marie Louise Gothein, History of garden art pp. 431-2). Some contemporary notes in a neat handwriting in the text and six leaves added with supplementary manuscript notes.Provenance: Name of André advocat à la cour 1764 and a stamp of 'Seminaire de Langres' on title.Hunt 324.

        Flora: seu, De florum cultura Or, a complete florilege, furnished with all requisites belonging to a florist

      London: Printed by J. G. for Richard Marriott, 1665. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Full contemporary calf, corners worn. The rare first edition of this early English gardening book. Lacking engraved frontispiece, but otherwise complete with eight plates at the end. "It seems that Rea undertook the writing of his book for the following reason. He had found that Parkinson's Paradisus now needed 'the addition of many noble things of newer discovery, and that a multitude of those there set out, were by time grown stale, and for unworthiness turned out of every good garden'. Rea therefore considered preparing a new edition, but afterwards decided that it would be better to write an entirely new work. This, when it appeared, proved to be the most important English treatise on gardening to be published during the second half of the seventeenth century" (Henry).

        Institutio Parochi seu speculum parochorum Ö.

      ?vora, ex Typographia AcademiÊ, 1665. - Title-page in red and black with large woodcut Jesuit emblem. Woodcut initials, headpieces and tailpieces. [11 ll.], 906, 102 pp. Folio (29.2 x 21 cm.), contemporary limp vellum (defective at outer edges of covers, especially rear cover, which has a section about 12 x 2.5 cm. chewed away at outer edge), vertical manuscript title on spine, fore-edge cover extensions. Some small, light stains, mostly in margins. Very minor worming in outer and lower margins of about 45 leaves, never affecting text. Pages 15ñ102 in final section with slight chewing in outer margins, never coming near to text. Overall in good condition. ---- FIRST EDITION. This popular work covering in exhaustive detail the duties of parish priests went through at least ten editions. Abreu sets out how priests should behave, where they should live, and the precepts they should explain to their flocks (with an abundance of material, perhaps for use in sermons). Exorcism is briefly mentioned (Book XIII, chapter 5).Abreu included in the @Institutio a detailed commentary on the papal bull @In Coena Domini, which pronounced the punishment of excommunication for those convicted of heresy, piracy, falsifying apostolic letters, selling weapons to infidels, robbing shipwrecks, and much more. This bull, promulgated in 1363, was read in Rome annually during Easter week, and until 1627 was frequently revised. Over the course of the eighteenth century, monarchs came to view @In Coena Domini as an infringement on their rights, and it was no longer read aloud or posted in every Catholic church throughout Europe. D. JosÈ I of Portugal declared in 1768 that it was treasonous to print, sell, distribute, or make judicial references to this particular bull. The later ban and the heavy use to which many volumes were probably put perhaps explains the rarity of this first edition. Sebasti?o d'Abreu was born at Crato in the Alentejo in 1594, and became a Jesuit at ?vora in 1610. He taught philosophy and theology for a time, then acted as a book censor at Rome and as theologian to the Father General. After serving for many years as chancellor of the Academy at ?vora, he died there in 1674. In addition to the present work, he published a @Vida, e virtudes do admiravel Padre Jo?o Cardim, ?vora 1659.---- Barbosa Machado III, 679. Cruz, @Tipografia portuguesa do sÈc.

Collijn sp. 711. Fant 19. Schweiger p. 726. First edition of the most important philological work by Johannes Schefferus! The Satyricon by Petronius was knows since long, but the part with Cena Trimalchionis (The Banquet of Trimalchio) was first found in a manuscript fragment discovered in Dalmatia in 1663. That fragment was published in Padua by Paulo Frambotti in 1664. A copy of that was sent to Schefferus by his good friend Gronovius, and already in 1665 was Schefferus able to publish this critical edition of the text with comments and with the correct conclusion that it was an original text by Petronius. This edition by Schefferus counts as a great philological achievement, and some of his comments are still present in modernt editions of Petronius. [Attributes: First Edition]

Schefferus handbok i vältalighet. Den utgavs först som disputationsserie i sex delar, 1652-53, och är i senare upplagor alltid utgiven tillsammans med "Gymnasium styli". Den användes av Schefferus som lärobok vid undervisningen vid den skytteanska professuren. Enligt Fant var den fortfarande (år 1782) av nytta, som "den bästa anvisning för ungdomen i detta ämne." Detta är den tredje upplagan av "De stylo" och således den andra av "Gymnasium styli". Magnus Oxelgren blev sedermera bl.a. lektor och prost samt inspektor över Visingsö läroverk. Här är han fortfarande en ung student som använder för- och eftersättsbladen i läroboken för att dels skriva en lista över de latinska tal han hållit, och dels (på eftersättsbladen) skriva en disposition till en valedictorialoration att förevisa för lector Haquin Wising på Visingsborgs gymnasium den 2 maj 1703

It was printed in Leiden by the heirs and the widow of John Elzevier. It will be noted that another edition of the same date in Peter Hammer has a different snack: (2) 501pp. and (2) 493pp. and therefore appears to contain less text than the one presented; it is unexplained curiosity.

A translucent ink stain title page of Volume II of the flagship. Copy rather fine. Bassompierres was imprisoned in the Bastille in 1631 for participating in the Day of dupes; he devoted his detention twelve years writing his memoirs (Journal of my life) and its embassies will be issued in 1668 In addition to being one of the most accomplished gentlemen of his time, continued Bassompierres two bright parallel careers as Henri IV and Louis XIII, military and diplomatic. These memories have always been particularly tasted, they bear the seal of the bitterness of imprisonment and are the work of a French gentleman. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Bassompierre fut emprisonné à la Bastille en 1631 pour avoir participé à la Journée des dupes ; il consacra sa détention de douze années à écrire ses mémoires (Journal de ma vie) puis ses ambassades, qui paraîtront en 1668. En plus d'être un des gentilshommes parmi les plus accomplis de son temps, Bassompierre poursuivit deux carrieres brillantes et parallèles sous Henri IV et Louis XIII, militaire et diplomatique. Ces mémoires ont toujours été particulièrement goûtés, elles portent le sceau de l'amertume de l'emprisonnement et sont l'oeuvre d'un grand gentilhomme français.

        Fair Warnings to a careless World:. in the pious Letter written by James Earl of Marleburgh, a little before his Death; to Sir Hugh Pollard, with the Last Words of CXL of the most learned Persons of the World LOST AT THE BATTLE OF LOWESTOFT; PLAGUE REMEDIES

      Printed for Samuel Speed at the Rainbow in Fleet-Street, 1665 - Sm. 4to., First [and Sole?] Edition, F2 torn at fore-margin with some loss of text, some light age-staining; disbound, sewed as issued, uncut, a fresh, crisp copy. With the publisher's advertisement leaf at end. The work is dedicated by Henry Smith to Pollard himself. James Ley (1618-1665), third Earl of Marlborough and naval captain, was grandson of his namesake, the first Earl and notable barrister. By 1643 he had become a Royalist commander and two years later established a colony at Santa Cruz in the West Indies. He then commanded the East Indies squadron that received Bombay from the Portuguese in 1661, and was nominated Governor of Jamaica in 1664. Ley's 'pious letter' is dated 24 April 1665. It concludes with the phrase 'So prays old James, near the coast of Holland' [at sea during the Second Anglo-Dutch War]. A marginal note in a neat contemporary hand states (correctly) 'the ship he was in, Old James, was his own name'. He died soon after [13 June 1665] aboard the same vessel. The Battle of Lowestoft, fought on 13 June 1665 between the English fleet under James Duke of York and the United Provinces [Dutch] fleet under Jacob van Wassenaer, remains the worst naval defeat in Dutch history. The author was killed in the 68-gun 'Old James' stationed in the Centre Division of the Duke of York's Red Squadron. Smith's compilation is nothing if not wide ranging. The other 'learned and honourable persons' include (of the UK) Arundel, Bacon, Bancroft, Charles I, Compton, Coventry, Donne, Egerton, Hatton, Howard, Leicester, Mason, Peito, Pembroke, Raleigh, Selden, Thomas Smith, Somerset, Stafford, Usher, Walsingham, Wolsey, Wotton; (and others) Aristotle, Caracciolus, Charles V, Chrysostom, Gondamar, Grotius, de Haro, Heinsius, Ignatius, Irenaeus, Junius, Justin Martyr, Mazarin, Origen, Plato, Polycarp, Richlieu, Salmasius, Seneca, Socrates, Solomon, Tertullian. Significantly, the publisher's advertisement leaf announces 'An excellent Preservative against Plague 2s. 6d. Per Paper, sealed', together with 'Medela Pestilentiae an exact Method for curing that Epidemical Distemper' and 'Reflections on the Weekly Bills of Mortality for the Cities of London and Westminster'.

Manque le coin supérieur droit de la dernière page d'index. Papier bien frais. Louis Duret fut particulièrement renommé en son temps pour ses connaissances sur Hippocrates, on le surnommait même 'L'hippocrates français", et il était capable de citer de mémoire des passages entiers de son oeuvre. L'ouvrage est divisé en chapitres correspondant à l'oeuvre d'Hippocartes, Les pronostics, les maladies, les céphalées, la voix, etc ; dans chacun de ses chapitres se trouve commenté des citations en grec d'hippocrates. Les coaques d'Hippocrates se concentrent sur l'importance des pronostics et sont éloignés de la médecine moderne qui se concentre sur le diagnostic. Louis Duret fut l'un des plus célèbres médecins de son temps avec Ambroise Paré, et il fut le premier médecin des rois Charles IX et Henri III.

        Philosophia moralis, præceptis succinctis methodicè comprehensa: commentariis theoreticis & practicis è priscis theologis, philosophis, oratoribus, historicis & poëtis plenè illustrata: insuperque septem quæstionum moralium centuriis [hebreisk text] logicè libereque afferta & absoluta. Præmittitur typus operis logicus: subjungitur geminus index: unus authorum, qui allegantur, explicantur, defenduntur, oppugnantur. Alter capitum & quæstionum moralium dubiarum & controversarum.

      1665 - Frankfurt, typis B. C. Wustii, 1665-66. 8:o. Extra engraved title,3-735,726-1600,(45) pp. & 1 folded printed table. Contemporary dark marbled calf, somewhat worn, with raised bands and richly gilt but oxidized décor on spine. Sprinkled edges. Spine somewhat dry. Insert fine. G. Palmstädt's bookstamp on spine and Christian Hammer's bookplate. VD17 39:136828N. Engraved title with year of printing 1666. Marcus Friedrich Wendelin (1584-1652) was a theologian and a pedagogue. The stamp "G. Palmstädt" on spine is contemporary with the binding and in all probability made for Germund Palm or Palmstedt (1635-1719), who was raised to the nobility as Cederhielm in 1686. He was county secretary in Halland in the 1660s, district judge in Albo in Småland and eventuelly became county governor of Älvsborg and Skaraborg. C. M. Carlander does not mention any binding with this bookstamp in his article on the Cederhielm Library in "Svenska bibliotek och ex-libris". The Norwegian Christian Hammer (1818-1905) was jeweller to HM the King of Sweden and made a fortune as a real-estate developer in the holiday resort of Furusund outside Stockholm. He acquired vast quantities of antiquities and books which were sold at several auctions after his death. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Fair Warnings to a careless World:. in the pious Letter written by James Earl of Marleburgh, a little before his Death; to Sir Hugh Pollard, with the Last Words of CXL of the most learned Persons of the World LOST AT THE BATTLE OF LOWESTOFT; PLAGUE REMEDIES

      Printed for Samuel Speed at the Rainbow in Fleet-Street,, 1665. Sm. 4to., First [and Sole?] Edition, F2 torn at fore-margin with some loss of text, some light age-staining; disbound, sewed as issued, uncut, a fresh, crisp copy. With the publisher's advertisement leaf at end. The work is dedicated by Henry Smith to Pollard himself. James Ley (1618-1665), third Earl of Marlborough and naval captain, was grandson of his namesake, the first Earl and notable barrister. By 1643 he had become a Royalist commander and two years later established a colony at Santa Cruz in the West Indies. He then commanded the East Indies squadron that received Bombay from the Portuguese in 1661, and was nominated Governor of Jamaica in 1664. Ley's 'pious letter' is dated 24 April 1665. It concludes with the phrase 'So prays old James, near the coast of Holland' [at sea during the Second Anglo-Dutch War]. A marginal note in a neat contemporary hand states (correctly) 'the ship he was in, Old James, was his own name'. He died soon after [13 June 1665] aboard the same vessel. The Battle of Lowestoft, fought on 13 June 1665 between the English fleet under James Duke of York and the United Provinces [Dutch] fleet under Jacob van Wassenaer, remains the worst naval defeat in Dutch history. The author was killed in the 68-gun 'Old James' stationed in the Centre Division of the Duke of York's Red Squadron. Smith's compilation is nothing if not wide ranging. The other 'learned and honourable persons' include (of the UK) Arundel, Bacon, Bancroft, Charles I, Compton, Coventry, Donne, Egerton, Hatton, Howard, Leicester, Mason, Peito, Pembroke, Raleigh, Selden, Thomas Smith, Somerset, Stafford, Usher, Walsingham, Wolsey, Wotton; (and others) Aristotle, Caracciolus, Charles V, Chrysostom, Gondamar, Grotius, de Haro, Heinsius, Ignatius, Irenaeus, Junius, Justin Martyr, Mazarin, Origen, Plato, Polycarp, Richlieu, Salmasius, Seneca, Socrates, Solomon, Tertullian. Significantly, the publisher's advertisement leaf announces 'An excellent Preservative against Plague…2s. 6d. Per Paper, sealed', together with 'Medela Pestilentiae…an exact Method for curing that Epidemical Distemper' and 'Reflections on the Weekly Bills of Mortality for the Cities of London and Westminster'.

Esemplare in ottimo stato di conservazione. Marco Fabio Quintiliano ( 30 - 40 d.C.) importante maestro di retorica (ebbe tra i suoi allievi Plinio il giovane) dopo vent'anni d'insegnamento, decise di abbandonare l'incarico e si dedicò alla stesura di un dialogo in cui espose la propria posizione sulla crescente corruzione dell'arte dell'eloquenza: l'opera perduta e qui esposta come ?di incerto autore?, il ?De causis corruptae eloquentiae?, e l'?L'Institutio oratoria?, in cui l'autore tenta di rispondere come mai la grande oratoria, quella che aveva reso famosa l'aula del senato di Roma al tempo di Cicerone, sembrava ormai solo un ricordo del passato. Seicentina del più grande trattato di retorica dell'antichità romana, ripartito in 12 libri, e delle restanti opere di Quintiliano. Precedono testimonianze e giudizi di autori vari sul grande retore latino (è presente fra l'altro la prefazione del Poliziano alle "Institutiones"). Ebbe a scrivere Theodor Mommsen sull'opera: "È una delle più eccellenti opere che possediamo dell'antichità romana, ispirata a buon gusto e retto giudizio, semplice nel senso e nella composizione, istruttiva senza pedanteria, attraente senza necessità di sforzo personale, in contrasto intenzionale con la letteratura vuota e manierata del tempo".

        Portfolio with Coat-of-arms of Colbert

      1665. COLBERT, Jean-Baptist. Red Morocco Portfolio for Engravings and Drawings, bearing the coat-of- arms of Colbert. Format: Grand Folio, 663 x 500 mm, (26 x 19 3/4 inches), bound in French seventeenth-century red morocco, with gilt-stamped arms of Colbert at center. [Paris, 1665]. |~||~||~||~||~| Jean-Baptiste Colbert (1619-1683), Minister of Finances for Louis XIV (1665 to 1683), superintendent of buildings of the Crown (1664), secretary of the Royal Navy (1669), founder of the royal tapestry factories at Gobelins, and supporter of those at Beauvais, in charge of the French East India Trading Company, member of the Académie Française, through his clever economic reforms, maintained a balanced economy in France despite Louis XIV's extravagant spending on wars, chateaux and luxury goods. Colbert was also a grand bibliophile, his library comprised close to 60,000 volumes, which was dispersed in 1728 by his nephew. Colbert would have ordered the binding of this portfolio to safe-guard his important works on paper, most likely engravings and drawings (and possibly business papers- though less likely). The use of such seventeenth-century portfolios was to keep items dear to the owner easily accessible while maintaining order, protection and a sense of aesthetics, with the portfolio residing on a desk or table-top. The large dimension, 663 x 500 mm closed, and 663 x 1050 mm (26 x 41 1/4 inches) opened, is supported by heavy boards under the red morocco. The interior spine is equally adorned with the Colbert chiffre of his initials under a golden crown. This beautiful example of the art of seventeenth-century French binding is likely the work of Eloy Le Vasseur, the major binder for Colbert, who also worked in the Royal Library for Louis XIV. The initials formed from JBC superimposed in double form was engraved by Simon Thomassin, who was employed by Colbert from 1672 until Colert's death in 1683. Some minor restorations to the corners and edges of the portfolio, various minor stains and signs of wear, missing the original ribbon ties, overall, a fine object, rare in this size and format, from the collection of one of the greatest of Bibliophiles. Guigard 167. OHR 1296-4.
