        T. Petronii Arbitri fragmentum nuper Tragurii Dalmatiæ repertum cum annotationibus Joannis Schefferi Argentoratensis accedit dissertatio ejusdem de fragmenti hujus vero auctore.

      - Uppsala, Henricus Curio, 1665. 8vo. (4),+ 83, 83-86, 86-162, 161-183,+ (1) pp. Minor spotting. Contemporary vellum. From the library of Christopher Eichhorn, with his book plate. 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]

        De stylo exercitiisque ejus ad consuetudinem veterum liber singularis.

      Ejusdem gymnasium styli seu de vario scribendi exercitio liber singularis. Editio tertia. Uppsala, Henricus Curio, 1665. 8:o. (6),+ 202,+ (2),+ 222 s. Solk på de inledande opaginerade sidorna. Första delen med fuktrand i marginalen på s. 17-50 och fläck i marginalen på s. 43. Spridda gamla marginalanteckningar och understrykningar. Senare stänkmarmorerat helskinnbd med bevarade, lite defekta, ursprungliga för och eftersättsblad. Brännmärkt ägarmärke i övre snittet. Med Sveno Magni Oxelgrens (1648-91) ägaranteckning på titelbladet och inklistrad lapp "Sveno M. Oxelgreen Wisingzb. Smol." på främre pärmens insida. Med dennes son Magnus Oxelgrens (1686-1750) rikliga bläckanteckningar på för och eftersättsbladen samt handskriven innehållsförteckning på titelbladets baksida. Collijn, sp. 827. 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

Bound in full morocco burgundy early twentieth century, elegant pastiche of a contemporary binding. Smooth back adorned with gilt title and date. Triple mentoring net on the boards. Gilt edges. Back fractionally and uniformly thinned. Nice copy. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Mention de seconde édition, rare, augmentée du second volume qui se trouve en originale et illustrée de deux titres-frontispices non signés. Le premier volume seul était paru initialement en 1663. On notera que les  pièces les plus importantes avaient paru sous le nom d'Oeuvres meslées en 1659. Reliure en plein maroquin lie de vin début XXe siècle, élégant pastiche d'une reliure d'époque. Dos lisse orné avec titre et date dorés. Triple filet d'encadrement sur les plats. Tranches dorées. Dos infimement et uniformément éclaircis. Bel exemplaire. L'abbé cotin est une figure incontournable des salons littéraires du XVIIe, et Molière le carricatura sous les traits de l'abbé Trissotin dans Les femmes savantes. Il inventa un jeu pour ces mêmes salons, le poème à énigme dont Les énigmes de ce temps, et les bouts rimez sont un témoignage. Il fut le poète à la mode de cette époque, fournisseur à l'envi d'une poésie galante et légère dont L'uranie dédiée à Marguerite de Rohan est un modèle. Les oeuvres contiennent également Les épigrammes, Les amours du jour et de la nuit , diverses pièces en prose, des billets et autres lettres, toutes sont marquées du sceau de la galanterie, d'un libertinage léger et d'un humour de bon aloi.

        Memoires du Mareschal de Bassompierre contenant l'histoire de sa vie et de EDITION ORIGINALE

      A Cologne: Chez Pierre Marteau , 1665. Fine. Chez Pierre Marteau , A Cologne 1665, 2 tomes en 2 Vol. in 16 (7x13cm), (2) 501 (2 bc.) 132pp. et 808pp., relié. - First edition, rare. 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. Full Sheepskin blonde marbled time. Spine ribbed decorated with jewels compartmentalized. Part of title in red morocco, and volume number in black morocco. Head cover of Volume 1 with parts broken away; lack of volume 2 in head and tail. Lack of 1.5 cm along the upper jaw (to work). Coins for most blunt. Volume I slightly larger than 0.5cm Volume II. 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. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, rare. Elle a été imprimée à Leyde par les héritiers et la veuve de Jean Elzevier. On remarquera qu'une autre édition à la même date chez Pierre Marteau possède une collation différente : (2) 501pp. et (2) 493pp. et semble donc contenir moins de texte que celle que nous présentons ; c'est une curiosité non élucidée. Reliure en pleine basane blonde d'époque marbrée. Dos à nerfs orné de fleurons cloisonnés. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge, et de tomaison en maroquin noir. Coiffe de tête du tome 1 en partie arrachée ; un manque en tête du tome 2 et un en queue. Un manque d'1,5cm le long du mors supérieur (travail de vers). Coins pour la plupart émoussés. Tome I légèrement plus grand de 0,5cm que le tome II. Une tache d'encre translucide en page de titre du volume II sur le fleuron. Exemplaire plutôt frais. 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]

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.

        Racing in America 1665-1979 in Six Volumes [Signed by W. S. Vosburgh, William H. Rudy, and Raymond Belmont]

      Privately Printed for the Jockey Club, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good to Fine, First editionA Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, complete in Six Volumes [including the quite scarce Vosburgh Volume], WITH THE VOSBURGH VOLUME SIGNED BY W. S. VOSBURGH AND BY RAYMOND BELMONT, AND THE RUDY VOLUME SIGNED BY WILLIAM H. RUBY, replete with 361 Plates/Illustrations; a remarkable set of this Limited Edition in Six Volumes, with several of the Volumes being hand-numbered; the first volume (being one of two Volumes covering 1665-1865) authored by John Hervey being number 241 of eight hundred copies, the second volume (being the second of two Volumes covering 1665-1865) also authored by John Hervey and also being numbered 241 of eight hundred copies; the third volume (covering 1866-1921) authored by W. S. Vosburgh not calling to be numbered and of which -- given its scarcity -- presumably few copies were printed; the fourth volume (covering 1922-1936) not called to be numbered; the fifth volume (covering 1937-1959) authored by Robert F. Kelley being numbered 137 of one thousand copies; and the sixth volume (covering 1960-1979) authored by W. H. Rudy being numbered 428 of two thousand copies. The Volumes vary from Very Good to Fine condition with the first, second, third, fourth, and sixth Volumes showing varied rubbing to the board corners; the first, second, and third Volumes show some scattered foxing; the first, second, and third Volumes showing some rubbing/wear to the boards and board edges (the first Volume also shows spotting to the front endpapers and tide marks to the spine and to the right margin of the Index pages at the rear and the second volume a tide mark to the lower spine); the third Volume's frontispiece tissue guard is wrinkled; the fourth Volume shows some wear to the spine ends and to the leading edges of the boards; and the first, second, third, and sixth Volumes show some wear to the spine labels. The first and second Volumes carry the small bookplate of Fairfield G. Coogan of York Maine, a member of the family for which "Coogan's Bluff" is named. A cornerstone of any racing collection, the individual Volumes are rather uncommon to the market and complete sets containing all six Volumes are quite scarce. Both individual Volumes and complete sets signed by any of the authors are as scarce as hen's teeth. The most important Volume, that authored by W. S. Vosburgh is quite scarce indeed and signed copies of it appear to be virtually impossible to find. One of the most notable figures in America's thoroughbred racing history. Vosburgh's Volume, itself one of the most important works of racing history, covers the period during which thoroughbred racing evolved into its modern form and provides a detailed history of racing in New York during the period covered, capsule histories of racing history in other states, including Missouri, and reviews of the most important horse races of the era. One of the New York Jockey Club's founding members, of his Volume the New York Times, in its review, stated "[Vosburgh] is probably the best equipped man in America for such a work….throughout it runs the personality of a true lover of the thoroughbred whose youthful enthusiasm has never waned." In his obituary, the Times noted that he was considered the best handicapper in America and that, during his 60 years of involvement in the sport, he did much to assure the success of thoroughbred racing in America. Vosburgh's Volume is signed by him on the title page also has been signed by Raymond Belmont on the Volume's front free endpaper, which signature Belmont has dated "1924" (and the ghost of which signature and date appears on the following blank page). Belmont, son of Belmont Park's founder August Belmont, Jr., and grandson August Belmont, Sr. who financed the inaugural Belmont Stakes held at Jerome Park Racetrack in The Bronx (1868 ), ran the Belmont track (at which the Belmont Stakes, the annual third leg of the Triple Crown, is held and at which the race has been run since 1905) from his father's death in 1924. A remarkable set of a racing collection cornerstone, SIGNED BY RAYMOND BELMONT, WILLIAM H. RUDY, and W. S. VOSBURGH.

      Cantabrigiae: Excusum per Joannem Field 12mo (14 cm; 5.5"). [1] f., 19, [1], 755 [i.e. 767, 1], 516 pp. (without the initial blank).. 1665 The second English edition of the Septuagint. There are different issues: This a copy of the one with the third word of the Greek title readiing "Diath?che" and not "Diath?ke" and with the printer's device showing the man holding the sun in his left hand. Thus, this is Darlow and Moule issue "B." => Thomas Jefferson owned a copy of one of the issues of this edition. Provenance: Manuscript ownership inscription of John Ray dated 1716 (on retained fly-leaf); ownership signature of Robert L. Wilson, New York, 1818 (on title-page); gilt supra-libros of Barzillai Slosson, dated 1829. Later in the Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released). Binding: American binding of dark blue goat, richly gilt, with wide floral border on covers and spine distinctively gilt using rules and floral roll. Board edges with a gilt roll; turn-ins gilt tooled. Marbled endpapers. All edges gilt. Gilt supra-libros of Barzillai Slosson as above. Unsigned. Barzillai Slosson may have been related to the lawyer of the same name who was active in Kent, CT, at the end of the 18th century and into the fourth decade of the 19th, whose account books are in the Yale Law Library. And the owner of this Testament may be the Barzillai who graduated from Columbia College in 1818 and later moved to Geneva, NY, where he was active and successful in business and civic affairs. Binding as above, lightly rubbed. Pages closely cropped in the 19th-century rebinding and some initial or final letters touched or lost. Very good.

This is the first astronomical treatise based on telescopic observations to be published.

        The travels of Sig. Pietro della Valle, a noble Roman, into East-India and Arabia Deserta [...]. Whereunto is added a relation of Sir Thomas Roe's voyage into the East-Indies.

      London, J. Macock for John Martin and James Allestry, 1665.. (8), 480 pp. With double-page engraved map and 3 engraved plates (on 2 leaves) and some woodcut illustrations in the text. Contemporary calf. Rebacked, with parts of the original backstrip laid down. Folio.. First edition in English (of the third part) of Pietro della Valle's renowned "Viaggi", describing his travels in India, Arabia and Syria. Della Valle sojourned six years in Persia, returning overland to Europe in 1623. He travelled from Goa (India) to Muscat and through the Arabian Gulf to Basra and from there to Aleppo. His narrative includes a detailed description of the Arabian Gulf. "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). - Della Valle's account is followed by Thomas Roe's journal. Sir Thomas Roe (c. 1581-1644) was the first fully accredited English ambassador to the court of the Great Mughal, Jahangir. Roe stayed at the court for nearly three years from 1615 until 1618. He described daily life at court in great detail, which makes his account a major source for the study of Mughal court life, providing interesting details of the character of Mughal Emperor Jahangir. Roe frequently refers to Arabia and includes an account of Islam. The double-page map shows the Mughal Empire. - With contemporary manuscript index on last blank. Bookplate on pastedown. Blanks and pastedowns dirty, some smudges and stains, otherwise in good condition. - ESTC R10032. Howgego, to 1800, D30. Tobler 95. Cf.

Title-page printed in red and black with engraved arms of the Royal Society, 38 engraved plates of which 37 are folding by and after the author and possibly Christopher Wren, woodcut headpieces and 5-line initials. Contemporary inscription on license leaf blank recto recording the gift of the book by Sir James Cuffe to Trinity Hall, Cambridge: "Liber Aula Trinitatis e Dono Jacobi Cuffe eq[uita]tis. Aurati. A[nn]o 1665". License leaf reattached in gutter, lower margin of title and A1 repaired without affecting text, some minor paper repairs to plates and text leaf corners, a good copy. First edition, first issue. This "early landmark in microscopy, containing the first illustration of cells [plate xi]" (Horblit) was published under the aegis of the Royal Society, and Hooke's observations were the first to be carried out with an improved compound microscope, and the first to describe the microscopic structure of tissue with the term "cell". The book reproduces the almost frantic series of observations made by Hooke in 1663 and 1664 as the young scientist (he was still in his twenties) peered through the lenses of his new microscope at anything he could find. His text ranges widely, finding space for discussion of microscopic fungi, the life cycle of the mosquito, the origin of lunar craters, as well as the origin of fossils (Hooke's proposal is the first sensible one in print). There is also the discussion of light and colour which led to his bitter dispute with Newton. The extent of Hooke's investigation and the precision of his account entirely devoted to microscopical examination made Hooke's work "probably the most influential book in the entire history of microscopy" (Norman). But it is the justly famous series of plates, engraved mostly from Hooke's drawings with some probably by Sir Christopher Wren, which ultimately distinguishes the book, made it a contemporary bestseller, and kept Pepys up all night staring at it in amazement. Here are the tiny, unregarded components of everyday life ?- a stinging nettle, for example, a louse, or the famous flea ?- blown up with a startling degree of detail and exactness not to be equalled until the age of the electron microscope. This discovery of a new world-within-a-world had a profound influence on contemporary perceptions of the everyday world. The disorientating effect of the new perspective is memorably captured in Swift's descriptions of Lilliput and Brobdingnag in Gulliver's Travels.
