        Discours de l’amitié et de la haine qui se trouvent entre les animaux.

      Paris, Claude Barbin, 1667. - Petit in-8, (3) ff. préliminaires, 248 pp.; (1) f. d'errata et privilège. Basane fauve, dos à nerfs orné, double encadrement de triple filet doré avec fleurs de lis en écoinçon, fers du Collège de la Marche sur les plats, tranches mouchetées de rouge (reliure de l’époque). Petit travail de ver sur le second plat. Édition originale. Le médecin manceau et philosophe M. Cureau de La Chambre (1596-1669) étudie dans cet ouvrage les relations que les animaux sont susceptibles d'avoir entre eux et les classe sous les deux grandes catégories de l'amour et de la haine ; il conclut en effet de ses observations que les animaux non seulement éprouvent des sentiments, mais sont aussi capables de les exprimer. Marin Cureau de La Chambre qui conseille et prodigue ses soins, non seulement à son protecteur Le Chancelier Pierre Séguier, mais à deux Rois de France, Louis XIII et Louis XIV. Membre de la toute jeune Académie française et premier occupant du fauteuil 36, de l’Académie des Sciences, sa notoriété aurait pu se borner à celle acquise pour avoir été l’acteur principal du détrônement de la langue latine au profit du français comme véhicule de la dissémination des sciences en Europe. Mais ses interprétations « des fonctions de l’Âme » en font un véritable précurseur, oublié ou négligé, de la neuropsychologie et de l'éthologie grâce aux développements qu’il sût donner à des concepts qui nous apparaissent encore très contemporains touchant les émotions et la mémoire aussi bien chez l’Homme que chez les animaux. Le collège de la Marche aussi appelé collège de la Marche-Winville est un collège de l'ancienne université de Paris situé rue de la Montagne-Sainte-Geneviève. Intéressante reliure de prix du XVIIe siècle. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Considérations politiques sur les coups d'Etat.

      Sur la Copie de Rome, 1667, seconde édition, 1 volume de 75x140 mm environ, (2) ff., (2) ff. (1 titre, au lecteur, à l'auteur) 343 pages, ((2) ff., reliure plein vélin crème avec plats recouvrant la tranche à l'ancienne. Frottements légers sur les coins, petites taches sur le cuir, sinon bon état. Gabriel Naudé (né le 2 février 1600 à Paris et mort le 10 juillet 1653 à Abbeville) est un bibliothécaire français, un lettré et libertin érudit, un théoricien de la raison d'État.En 1639, Gabriel Naudé fit paraître son ouvrage sans doute le plus célèbre, Considérations politiques sur les Coups dEtat. Ce petit traité de machiavélisme appliqué (destiné au cardinal Bagni, son patron du moment), fut publié, de manière confidentielle, à Rome : une douzaine d'exemplaires, suivant l'auteur lui-même ; sans doute un peu plus. Une seconde édition parut en 1667. Gabriel Naudé explique que les "coups d'Etat" peuvent "marcher sous la même définition que nous avons déjà donnée aux maximes et à la raison d'Etat, qu'elles sont un excès du droit commun, à cause du bien public, ou pour m'étendre un peu davantage en français, des actions hardies et extraordinaires que les princes sont contraints d'exécuter aux affaires difficiles et comme désespérées, contre le droit commun, sans garder même aucun ordre ni forme de justice, hasardant l'intérêt du particulier, pour le bien du public" (chap. 2, "Quels sont proprement les coups d'Etat, et de combien de sortes").

        China monumentis, qua sacris qua profanis, nec non variis naturae & artis spectaculis, aliarumque rerum memorabilium argumentis illustrata .

      Antwerp Meurs 1667 - First edition, folio (32.5 x 21 cm), additional engraved title (with Amsterdam imprint), portrait of the author, 2 folding maps, 22 plates and illustrations within the text, 2pp. ad at end, occasional staining or spotting, contemporary vellum, stained, occasional light toning, generally a very good fresh copy. 'One of the most influential books in shaping the European conception of China in its day' (Löwendahl). "Gathering his work from other members of the Society [of Jesuits], Kircher wrote one of the century's most influential treatises on China. His primary purpose was to establish the authenticity of the Nestorian monument discovered in Sian, and to that end he produced in print the original Chinese and Syriac inscriptions on the monument, the Chinese text in romanization, and finally a Latin translation and his explication of the Chinese and Syriac texts. In addition, Kircher included a sizeable description of China and other places in Asia. For example, in a section devoted to Christianity in China, he sketched all the old overland routes, including that of Grueber and d'Orville from Agra to Peking, as well as giving a description of Tibet. Following what he thought to be the spread of idolatry from the Near East to Persia, India, and finally to East Asia, Kircher described the religions of China, Japan, and India. There are several chapters on government, customs, geography, fauna, flora, and mechanical arts of China, and a very interesting scholarly discussion of the Chinese language. There is a long Chinese-Latin dictionary. Kircher's volume contains several beautiful pictures taken from Chinese and Mughal originals, which Grueber had brought back to Europe with him in 1664. Although the book was not the product of Kircher's own experience in China, it was frequently used or cited as a source of information by later writers. Some of the information contained in it, for example the text of the Nestorian monument, Roth's description of Hindu religion, and Grueber's description of Tibet, had not appeared in print before."

        HISTOIRE AMOUREUSE DE FRANCE [Histoire amoureuse des Gaules].

      Sans lieu, sans nom, 1667 (Bruxelles ?, Foppens ? Elzéviers ?). 1 volume petit in-12 (13 x 8 cm - Hauteur des marges : 125 mm) de 1 titre frontispice gravé à l'eau-forte, 1 page de titre (à la sphère), 258 pages chiffrées. Reliure plein vélin de l'époque, titre à l'encre au dos en long (époque). Exemplaire dans sa première reliure hollandaise en vélin, avec quelques taches et quelques salissures à la reliure, néanmoins solide et en très bon état de conservation. Belle patine. Intérieur assez frais, une piqure de rouille et une petite perforation dans un feuillet, sans gravité, le frontispice se détache. Page de titre écourtée en marge de tête sur 8 mm, sans atteinte au texte (voir ci-dessous). RARE ÉDITION AVEC LE CANTIQUE LICENCIEUX "QUE DEODATUS EST HEUREUX DE BAISER CE..." Cette édition ne correspond réellement à aucunes de celles décrites par Tchémerzine qui pourtant en décrit une approchante qu'il donne à la date de 1666 en 258 pages avec une page de titre en plus du frontispice gravé, comme ici. Il est imprimé sur la bannière de la renommée "Histoire amoureuse des Gaules" ; de plus ce frontispice n'est pas signé "Bus. inv." et "Rabut. exc." comme cela est indiqué dans Tchémerzine. Édition bien complète du texte originel de l'Histoire amoureuse des Gaules comprenant l'Histoire amoureuse de France (p. 1) comprenant l'Histoire de Madame de Chastillon (p. 109), le livre second de l'Histoire amoureuse de France (p. 178) comprenant bien le célèbre cantique licencieux "Que Deodatus est heureux de baiser ce ..." (p. 196 à 198), l'Histoire de Madame de Sevigny (p. 200), l'Histoire de Madame de Monglas et de Bussy (p. 218), et enfin les Maximes d'amour (p. 239 à 246) et la copie de la Lettre au Duc de Saint-Aignan par le Comte de Bussy du 12 novembre 1665. Le titre courant porte "Histoire amoureuse de France". Cette édition donne les noms véritables dans le texte, il n'y a donc pas de clé. Il y eut en même temps au moins trois éditions illustrée du même frontispice, la troisième étant visiblement une contrefaçon mal exécutée. Cette édition, comme toutes les premières éditions de l'Histoire amoureuse des Gaules de Bussy-Rabutin, est assez rare. Le Cantique "Que Deodatus est heureux de baiser ce ..." est tourné contre La Vallière et ses amours coupables avec le roi Louis XIV. Références : Tchémerzine II, 158 pour les éditions approchantes. AGRÉABLE EXEMPLAIRE EN CONDITION D'ÉPOQUE.

      1667.  In folio (32,0 x 21,0 cm), bella e solida legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida, titolo e fregi in oro sul dorso, bellissima antiporta figurata; frontespizio con vignetta tipografica incisa, ritratto dell'Autore inc in rame a piena pagina al verso, pp. (12) - 237 - (11), all'interno delle pagine numerate la carta delle pp. 73 - 74 è una copia, tagli rossi. Le  2 mappe geografiche sulla Cina incise e più volte ripiegate sono qui presenti in copia a colori (formato ridotto); 1 tav. ripiegata per la stele nestoriana (V. sotto); 2 tavv. per le iscrizioni in siriaco; 20 tavv. incise a piena pagina (3 sono copie); 42 incis. a mezza pagina nel testo (2 sono copie, sono quelle presenti nelle pp. 73 - 74); 17 incisioni al tratto a 1/4 di pagina nel testo. Le incisioni, tutte in rame, sono nitide e ben impresse. Raro esemplare molto ben conservato, ma difettoso per le mancanze già descritte. Cordier, BS, 26. Caillet, 5774. Löwendhal, 133. Merrill. 20. Sommervögel, IV, 1064. Prima rara edizione di una delle più importanti opere del XVII secolo sulla Cina. Il gesuita tedesco Athanasius Kircher (1602 - 1680) fu una figura di spicco della cultura secentesca, grande erudito, appassionato studioso di storia, linguistica, musica e scienze naturali. L'opera in oggetto è una bella testimonianza del fascino esercitato dalla Cina nella seconda meta del '600.; tale fu il successo che fu subito tradotta in olandese, inglese e francese. Partendo dall'analisi sulla autenticità di una stele nestoriana presente nella città di Sian, l'Autore, mente enciclopedica, si addentra su tutti gli aspetti della Cina: lingua, religione, storia, usi e costumi, storia naturale, architettura. Il testo è diviso in sei parti, la prima tende a stabilire, come si è già detto, l'autenticità di una stele nestoriana conservata a Sian e illustra le iscrizioni cinesi e siriane del monumento, fornendo una traduzione latina, la seconda parte descrive la storia del cristianesimo in Cina, fornendo nel contempo tutte le rotte terrestri, che portavano dall'Europa alla Cina (molto interessante la parte dedicata al Tibet), la terza si sofferma in particolare sulla diffusione dell'idolatria dal Vicino Oriente fino all' Asia Orientale, descrivendo le antiche religioni di Cina e Giappone, la quarta parte tratta del governo cinese, delle sue città e largo spazio è dedicato alla fauna e flora (molto belle le illustrazioni che corredano questo capitolo), la quinta descrive  le  meraviglie architettoniche e meccaniche della Cina; nella sesta, l'autore torna a trattare in modo scientifico della lingua cinese, comparando i geroglifici cinesi con quelli egizi.In base alle non lievi mancanze, viene posta in vendita ad un prezzo molto modico.

EDITION ORIGINALE de cet armorial rare. La deuxième partie est reliée avant la première ; les planches de blasons, légèrement plus courtes, sont déreliées à part, elles manquent très souvent comme nous avons pu le constater dans les exemplaires des Bibliothèques ; elles présentent une grande auréole claire et de tout petits trous de vers sans aucune gravité. Exemplaire à faire recoudre, simplement. Bon état général. Cet armorial qui couvre plus particulièrement les évêchés de Léon et Tréguier, mais aussi toute la Bretagne (environ 3 000 familles y sont recensées) avec bien-sûr les généalogies et souvent des détails fort intéressants pour l'histoire locale, économique et politique est resté une source d'une telle qualité que les rééditions se sont multipliées, y compris de nos jours.

        Il pomo d'oro. Festa teatrale Rappresentata in Vienna per l'augustissime nozze delle sacre cesaree e Reali Maestà di Leopoldo, e Margherita.

      Vienna: Matteo Cosmerovio, 1667. - 8vo., (6 2/8 x 4 inches). Fine folding etched additional title-page and 23 fine engraved folded etched plates by Matthaus Kusel (1629-81) after Ludovico Burnacini (1636-1707), in their first state (one plate loose, one plate with frayed fore-edge just affecting the image). Original red paper wrappers, original first and last blank leaves mounted as paste-downs, (worn with minor loss in one or two places). Modern red folding box. Provenance: L'Art Ancien (cat. 45, no. 36, sold to Gourary 1956); The Paul and Marianne Gourary Collection of Illustrated Fete Books "Splendid Ceremonies", with their small bookplate on the inside front wrapper. AN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE COPY OF THE EXCEEDINGLY RARE AND NOTORIOUSLY FRAGILE FIRST EDITION. This book contains the libretto and stage designs of the infamous Il Pomo d'Oro, an incredible opera produced at the Hapsburg court of the Holy Roman Empire in 1668. The staging of Il Pomo d'Oro was an unprecedented affair with magnificent sets, costumes, and special effects which, if produced today, would be considered a summer blockbuster on the grandest scale. The entire affair is documented in the plates of this book, and one gets a true sense of the pageantry and grandeur of the great monarchies of the day. The opera was so long it had to be staged over the course of two days! Originally planned to mark the wedding of the Habsburg Holy Roman Emperor Leopold I and Margaret Theresa of Spain in 1666, it was instead put on to celebrate the Empress's 17th birthday two years later. Melchior Küsel's fine plates illustrate each of Burnacini's elaborate sets. This extravagant production of "Il pomo d'oro", or "The Golden Apple", the classical Greek tale which begins with a beauty contest and ends in the Trojan War. This libretto by Sbarra was one of the most sumptuously produced and grandiose operas of the Baroque period, and has Jupiter present the golden apple to the new Empress Margarita as the most beautiful woman present. The event was the first held in the grand new theater in the Cortina of the Hofburg (now the National Library of Austria), designed by the celebrated imperial court engineer Lodovico Burnacini (1636-1707), who also designed the costumes and created a whopping 24 sets complete with elaborate stage machinery, including shipwrecks and collapsing towers. The music was composed by Pietro Antonio Cesti (1629-69), although only an incomplete score survives.

The fire gutted the medieval City of London inside the old Roman city wall. It threatened, but did not reach, the aristocratic district of Westminster, Charles II's Palace of Whitehall, and most of the suburban slums. It consumed 13,200 houses, 87 parish churches, St Paul's Cathedral and most of the buildings of the City authorities. It is estimated to have destroyed the homes of 70,000 of the City's 80,000 inhabitants. The death toll is unknown but traditionally thought to have been small, as only six verified deaths were recorded, however, the social and economic problems created by the disaster were overwhelming. [Wiki]. This anonymous author examines the aftermath of the fire, and enumerates 8 specific cause factors for the inferno, i.e., "everyone may be the author of his own fortune", "it did happen, to wit, about one of the clock in the night, when every one is buried in his sleep", "the narrowness of the place", "the weakness of the buildings, which were almost all of wood", "The quantity of combustible and bituminous matter hath given the greates encouragement to this devouring Fire", "The foregoing summer was extraordinarily hot and dry", "In cometh now the East-wind to play his part in this Tragedy" & "the Thames Water-house was out of order". An amazingly spot-on topical analysis of the fire's causal factors, omitting only the delayed response by the Lord Mayor. Uncommon on the market, we note ABPC shows just one copy to auction in the last 30+ years [2006].

        Military Scenes from the History of Louis XIV

      Paris 1667-70 - Military Scenes from the History of Louis XIV is a series of eight etchings by the Dutch artist Jan van Huchtenburg. It celebrates Louis XIV’s military conquests in the Spanish Netherlands during the War of Devolution (1667-68). Van Huchtenburg executed his etchings in the style of his master, the French court painter Adam Frans van der Meulen, who, accompanied by van Huchtenburgh, produced drawings of the campaign while on tour with the king in the late 1660’s. Van Huchtenburg’s eight prints depict at least three separate French victories secured by Louis XIV in the War of Devolution, a conflict whose origins lie in opposing claims to the territories of the Spanish Netherlands. Upon the death of Philip IV of Spain in 1665, Louis XIV of France made claim to the Spanish territories west of the Dutch Republic. In the spirit of military and economic expansion that pervaded the French court during the mid-seventeenth century, Louis XIV found pretext for his claim to the Spanish Netherlands in the lineage of his wife, Maria Theresa of Spain. As the only surviving child of Philip IV’s first marriage (to Elisabeth of France, d. 1644) and in light of Charles II’s regency (Philip IV died while his heir by his second wife, Mariana of Austria, was just four years old), Maria Theresa was, according to the French court, the proper heir to her father’s estate and the Spanish Netherlands were thereby "devolved" to her. Van Huchtenburg’s prints represent early French victories in the War of Devolution, sieges and battles that took place in the countryside of the Spanish Netherlands in the vicinity of cities such as Lille and Tournai. Of these eight etchings, three represent Louis XIV’s conquest of Tournai from June 21-25, 1677 (plates 1-3; plate 3 has been identified as the Surrender of Tournai by Edith A. Standen; plates 1 and 2 identified in our research) and three represent the taking of Douai from June 30-July 4, 1667 (plates 4-6 identified in our reserarch). The subjects of the remaining etchings (plates 7 and 8) remain unidentified by scholars, but it seems likely that they represent the fortress towns of Charleroi, Ath, and Lille, as Louis XIV is known to have visited these areas during the summer of 1677 (figure 1). The king’s successful campaigns in Tournai and Douai were coordinated with other attacks that the Marechal d’Aumont de Rochebaron and the Marechal de Turenne mounted to the north. These battles, intended to cut off Spanish access to the sea, ensured that France had all but conquered the Spanish Netherlands by the end of September 1667. The speed with which the French spread throughout the Spanish Netherlands worried English, Dutch, and Swedish leaders alike, particularly as bureaucratic obstacles in Spain delayed the influx of additional Spanish troops. The members of the resulting "Triple Alliance" against France (England, the Dutch Netherlands, and Sweden) thus encouraged a spate of European diplomatic negotiations in the winter of 1667. Although Louis XIV had little intention of rescinding his territorial gains (instead, the king moved additional troops into the Franche-Comté in February 1668, long before the initiation of the summer campaigns, as a means of securing additional diplomatic "bargaining chips"), by March of 1668, France had agreed to the terms of the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle. Recognizing that the French were no match for the combined military strength of the Triple Alliance, Louis XIV agreed to return to Spain all conquered territories with the exception of twelve Spanish fortress towns, including Lille, Tournai, Courtrai, Douai, Charleroi, and Ath. The heightened tensions between France and the Dutch Republic that resulted from these negotiations led, according to some scholars, to the Franco-Dutch War of 1672-78. French diplomatic relations also suffered in the aftermath of the War of Devolution, as Louis XIV had encouraged an historically unlikely alliance between Spain and the Dutch Republic.

        PINAX MICROCOSMOGRAPHICUS

      Amsterdam: Justus Danckersz, 1667. Third Dutch Edition.  n. An almost breathtaking survival merely when it is found intact, this remarkably well-preserved copy is from an early edition of the first book to use superimposed flaps to show in a thoroughgoing way the internal organs of the human body; originally appearing in unauthorized versions (and then in the author';s edition of 1619), it features three of the most magnificent anatomical plates ever printed. It is the major work of Johann Remmelin (1583-1632), a physician in Ulm and Augsburg. While at Ulm, he conceived the notion of producing an anatomy that could be used to reveal--in successive layers--the muscles, bones, and viscera of the human body. He employed one of the leading Augsburg artists, Lucas Kilian (1579-1637), to render the engravings, which were based on Remmelin's own drawings. This is not the initial anatomical book to use illustrations with movable parts--for example, Vesalius makes a rudimentary attempt to employ this technique in his "Epitome"--but we see here for the first time an intricate representation, using well over 100 flaps, some of them quite small. The work was printed using eight separate plates, which were then cut apart and pasted together to make the three large figures. In some cases a single illustration may have as many as 15 successive layers which can be teased apart to reveal both surface and deep structures. Whatever the original intent, the overall effect for us today of the large-scale plates is notable visual impressiveness and considerable charm. The first plate depicts a male and a female body, and the trunk of a pregnant woman; once the flaps of the woman are folded back, the fetus is revealed. The second plate shows a man, and the third a woman, both with complex structures to reveal. To say that the facing tables are detailed is a considerable understatement: together, they contain many more than 1,000 references in each language to body parts and locations as depicted on the various layers shown in the plates. The work was always intended as a teaching aid, but it was impractical as such, owing to the high cost of production and the fact that the overlays were so easily damaged and lost. The book was frequently reprinted, being issued as late as 1754, and various editions show up in the marketplace with regularity, but very few copies survive in anything remotely like attractive condition.. 474 x 363 mm. (18 3/4 x 14 1/4"). 5 leaves. Third Dutch Edition. . Original marbled boards, untrimmed edges, spine expertly repaired. In a new folding cloth box. Title leaf verso with three-quarter page engraving showing front and back views of the body's veins, and THREE VERY INTRICATE AND FASCINATING FULL-PAGE ANATOMICAL PLATES WITH MORE THAN 100 MOVABLE FLAPS TO REVEAL AND ELUCIDATE THE BODY'S VARIOUS PARTS (the plates mounted on recto of blank sheets, as issued, with text on verso).

An almost breathtaking survival merely when it is found intact, this remarkably well-preserved copy is from an early edition of the first book to use superimposed flaps to show in a thoroughgoing way the internal organs of the human body; originally appearing in unauthorized versions (and then in the author's edition of 1619), it features three of the most magnificent anatomical plates ever printed. It is the major work of Johann Remmelin (1583-1632), a physician in Ulm and Augsburg. While at Ulm, he conceived the notion of producing an anatomy that could be used to reveal--in successive layers--the muscles, bones, and viscera of the human body. He employed one of the leading Augsburg artists, Lucas Kilian (1579-1637), to render the engravings, which were based on Remmelin's own drawings. This is not the initial anatomical book to use illustrations with movable parts--for example, Vesalius makes a rudimentary attempt to employ this technique in his "Epitome"--but we see here for the first time an intricate representation, using well over 100 flaps, some of them quite small. The work was printed using eight separate plates, which were then cut apart and pasted together to make the three large figures. In some cases a single illustration may have as many as 15 successive layers which can be teased apart to reveal both surface and deep structures. Whatever the original intent, the overall effect for us today of the large-scale plates is notable visual impressiveness and considerable charm. The first plate depicts a male and a female body, and the trunk of a pregnant woman; once the flaps of the woman are folded back, the fetus is revealed. The second plate shows a man, and the third a woman, both with complex structures to reveal. To say that the facing tables are detailed is a considerable understatement: together, they contain many more than 1,000 references in each language to body parts and locations as depicted on the various layers shown in the plates. The work was always intended as a teaching aid, but it was impractical as such, owing to the high cost of production and the fact that the overlays were so easily damaged and lost. The book was frequently reprinted, being issued as late as 1754, and various editions show up in the marketplace with regularity, but very few copies survive in anything remotely like attractive condition.

Sommervögel, IV, 1064. Prima rara edizione di una delle più importanti opere del XVII secolo sulla Cina. Il gesuita tedesco Athanasius Kircher (1602 - 1680) fu una figura di spicco della cultura secentesca, grande erudito, appassionato studioso di storia, linguistica, musica e scienze naturali. L'opera in oggetto è una bella testimonianza del fascino esercitato dalla Cina nella seconda meta del ?600.; tale fu il successo che fu subito tradotta in olandese, inglese e francese. Partendo dall'analisi sulla autenticità di una stele nestoriana presente nella città di Sian, l'Autore, mente enciclopedica, si addentra su tutti gli aspetti della Cina: lingua, religione, storia, usi e costumi, storia naturale, architettura. Il testo è diviso in sei parti, la prima tende a stabilire, come si è già detto, l'autenticità di una stele nestoriana conservata a Sian e illustra le iscrizioni cinesi e siriane del monumento, fornendo una traduzione latina, la seconda parte descrive la storia del cristianesimo in Cina, fornendo nel contempo tutte le rotte terrestri, che portavano dall'Europa alla Cina (molto interessante la parte dedicata al Tibet), la terza si sofferma in particolare sulla diffusione dell'idolatria dal Vicino Oriente fino all' Asia Orientale, descrivendo le antiche religioni di Cina e Giappone, la quarta parte tratta del governo cinese, delle sue città e largo spazio è dedicato alla fauna e flora (molto belle le illustrazioni che corredano questo capitolo), la quinta descrive  le  meraviglie architettoniche e meccaniche della Cina; nella sesta, l'autore torna a trattare in modo scientifico della lingua cinese, comparando i geroglifici cinesi con quelli egizi.In base alle non lievi mancanze, viene posta in vendita ad un prezzo molto modico.

        Dendrologiae Naturalis scilicet Arborum historiae libri duo. Sylva glandaria, acinosumq. pomarium ubi eruditiones omnium generum una cum botanicis doctrinis ... Ovidius Montalbanus ... collegit, digessit ...

      Bononiae, J.B. Ferroni, 1667. Folio (390 x 255mm). pp. (12), 660, (52), with fine engraved allegorical title and many woodcuts in the text, of which about 50 full-page. Recent vellum, spine with brown gilt lettered label. First edition of this early dendrological work. The colophon is dated 1667 and the frontsipiece has a date of 1668, which is the case in all copies. The work was published by O. Montalbanus after the death of Aldrovandi, as the last part of his "Opera Omnia". 'In the meantime, Ulysses Aldrovandi of Bologna, Italy, a virtuoso savant-naturalist, has been filling his private museum with unusual plants and animals for about 50 years. Around 1580, while professor of medicine at the university and director of its botanical garden, he completed an inventory of his collection. It illustrated 59 cultivars of fruit for the first time in their natural size... Aldrovandi's work is a triumph of painstaking Renaissance documentation... Every imaginable aspect of a fruit is explored: culture, pests, anatomy, characteristics, cultivars, monstrosities, provenance, etymology, use as food, use in medicine and magic, occurrence in mythology, heraldry, biblical and classical writings, and so on' (H.F. Janson, Pomonas's harvest p. 79). A very clean copy.//Nissen BBI, 14.

        MICROGRAPHIA: OR SOME PHYSIOLOGICAL DESCRIPTIONS OF MINUTE BODIES MADE BY MAGNIFYING GLASSES. WITH OBSERVATIONS AND INQUIRIES THEREUPON

      London: Printed for James Allestry, 1667. FIRST EDITION, second issue (imprint a) y. This is a desirable copy of one of the most iconic works in the history of science, revered equally for its remarkable images as for its groundbreaking scientific observations. "Micrographia" introduced the term "cells" into the scientific lexicon, offered an explanation for the refraction of light (which preceded and may have influenced Newton's own theories on the same subject), put forth an early theory of fossilization, and described a great number of ingenious, original scientific instruments and experiments. Most importantly, this work marked the beginning of microscopy, opening up a world heretofore unseen by the naked eye. Here, for the first time, the most minute parts of the natural world were on display: the compound eye of a housefly; the structure of feathers, hair, cork, and fossilized wood; and, of course, the famous flea and louse--all were articulated on a gigantic scale. "Micrographia" enjoyed commercial success, and it proved highly influential in the scientific community. PMM tells us that both Pepys and Newton read the work closely (Newton's heavily annotated copy is now at Cambridge), and it clearly set the stage for van Leeuwenhœk's own groundbreaking work in microbiology a short while later. Although Hooke (1635 -1703) published relatively few works during his lifetime, PMM says that "his contributions to astronomy, optics and all branches of physics, mechanics, technology and architecture are innumerable." Among Hooke's many talents was evidentially that of draughtsmanship--the 38 fine plates are believed to have been executed by Hooke himself, though some have speculated that architect Christopher Wren may have collaborated. Keynes notes that our second issue is actually just a reissue of the first with a new title page, and the plates (with the exception of Plate V, which was re-engraved) are exactly the same. In any case, the first issue seems to be exceptionally rare--ABPC lists 12 copies of "Micrographia" sold since 1975, and all are second issue. Given the size of the folding plates here and the particular manner in which they are folded, copies of this work almost inevitably incur damage; happily, most of those in the present copy are untorn, and the small handful that suffered injury have been mended with the greatest of professional care. Furthermore, the cropping that is a major enemy of this book is almost entirely absent in our amply margined copy.. 303 x 198 mm. (12 x 7 3/4"). 18 p.l., 246, [10] pp. FIRST EDITION, second issue (imprint a). Recent calf in period style by Courtland Benson, covers with gilt and blind border, raised bands, spine elaborately gilt in compartments, marbled endpapers. WITH 38 SOMETIMES STRIKING ENGRAVED PLATES, most of them folding, principally showing microscopic views. Top of title page with 17th or 18th century signature of Daniel Thomas, and bottom corner with discreet blindstamped ex-libris of Melville Eastham of Cambridge, Massachusetts (see below). PMM 147 (first issue); Keynes 7; Wing H-2621. Tears (as often seen) in four folding plates (as long as five inches, but very expertly repaired without loss and almost invisibly), four other trivial tears (also with expert repairs), one plate with a few small brown stains, one (oversized) plate trimmed at bottom, costing a portion of a number of letters, a hint of thumbing and negligible fraying at the very beginning, otherwise AN EXTREMELY APPEALING COPY, the text within very ample margins, the paper unusually fresh and clean, the plates in dark impressions, and the retrospective binding unworn. This is a desirable copy of one of the most iconic works in the history of science, revered equally for its remarkable images as for its groundbreaking scientific observations.

Head- tailpieces. 4to: A^2 B - E^4 F^2. 7-1/4" x 5-3/4" The Great Fire of London was a major conflagration that swept through the central parts of the English city of London, starting at the bakery of Thomas Farriner (or Farynor) on Pudding Lane shortly after midnight, and raged from Sunday, 2 September to Wednesday, 5 September 1666. The fire gutted the medieval City of London inside the old Roman city wall. It threatened, but did not reach, the aristocratic district of Westminster, Charles II's Palace of Whitehall, and most of the suburban slums. It consumed 13,200 houses, 87 parish churches, St Paul's Cathedral and most of the buildings of the City authorities. It is estimated to have destroyed the homes of 70,000 of the City's 80,000 inhabitants. The death toll is unknown but traditionally thought to have been small, as only six verified deaths were recorded, however, the social and economic problems created by the disaster were overwhelming. [Wiki].This anonymous author examines the aftermath of the fire, and enumerates 8 specific cause factors for the inferno, i.e., "everyone may be the author of his own fortune", "it did happen, to wit, about one of the clock in the night, when every one is buried in his sleep", "the narrowness of the place", "the weakness of the buildings, which were almost all of wood", "The quantity of combustible and bituminous matter hath given the greates encouragement to this devouring Fire", "The foregoing summer was extraordinarily hot and dry", "In cometh now the East-wind to play his part in this Tragedy" & "the Thames Water-house was out of order".An amazingly spot-on topical analysis of the fire's causal factors, omitting only the delayed response by the Lord Mayor.

        China monumentis, qua sacris qua profanis, nec non variis naturae & artis spectaculis, aliarumque rerum memorabilium argumentis illustrata.

      Amsterdam, Jacob van Meurs, 1667 - 7 Bll., 237 SS., 5 Bll. mit ca. 55 Textkupfern. 1 Titel, 1 Porträt (, 2 doppelblattgr. Karten und 23 (1 mehrfach gefalt.) Tafeln (alles in Kupferstich). Der berühmte Raubdruck von Kirchers aufwendig illustriertem Referenzwerk über China und Ostasien im Jahr der Erstausgabe. - Dünnhaupt 2343,21.3. De Backer-S. IV,1963,24. Alt-Japan Kat. 724. - `China monumentis illustrata` (1667) bedeutet einen Meilenstein in der europäischen Chinakenntnis. Die Fülle des von Kircher verarbeiteten Materials wie auch die superben Abbildungen machten das Werk zu einem der meistgelesenen Chinabücher der frühen Neuzeit. - "1625 wurde in Sian eine alte chinesische Inschrift wieder aufgefunden. Sie stammte aus dem Jahr 781 und gab Zeugnis, dass schon damals das Christentum durch die Nestorianer in China Einzug gehalten hatte. Diese Entdeckung gab den Anstoß für Kircher, sein China-Buch zu publizieren. Die Texte beruhen großenteils auf Arbeiten von Ordensbrüdern. Den zentralen Platz nimmt die Edition der Sian-Inschrift ein. Damit ist "China monumentis illustrata" eine Inkunabel der Sinologie. Von Kircher selbst stammt ein sorgfältig recherchierter Abschnitt über die Geschichte der Reisewege nach China" (Deutsches Museum). - Übersetzungen in Holland, England (nur in Teilen) und Frankreich, ja sogar ein dem Original täuschend ähnlicher Raubdruck bezeugen den großen Erfolg des Werks. Hier vorliegend ein Exemplar eben dieses Raubdrucks, den Jacob van Meurs unmittelbar nach der Erstausgabe herausbrachte. Ohne die Erlaubnis der Verleger des Originals (Van Waesberge und Weyerstraat) einzuholen, ließ Van Meurs den Text neu setzen und alle Illustrationen akkurat nachstechen. Die darauffolgende Auseinandersetzung konnte gütlich beigelegt werden, nicht zuletzt deshalb, weil Van Waesberge und Weyerstraat für ihre Kircherausgabe ihrerseits den Bilderschatz des 1665 bei Van Meurs erschienenen Gesandtschaftsbericht Nieuhofs geplündert hatten. - Titel verso mit Resten eines entfernten Stempels. Das untere Viertel der Porträts in Faksimile auf altem Papier ergänzt (ca. 11 cm), ebenso S. 1/2. Gebräunt uns teils wasserrandig. Vereinzelte hinterlegte Randläsuren. Vorsätze erneuert.

        Tables de la geographie ancienne et nouvelle ou method pour s'instruire avec facilite de la geographie, et connoistre des empires, monarchies, royaumes, estats, republiques, et peoples de toutes les parties du monde.

      PARIS PIERRE MARIETTE BUT 1679 OR LATER 1667 - Folio (46 x 32 cm.), printed title with woodcut royal arms, 201 double-page engraved maps, 90 engraved descriptive tables (dated 1663-1679), contemporary manuscript index at end of volume calling for 110 maps, contemporary outline colour. Contemporary calf gilt, rubbed, neat repairs to extremities, an excellent example. One of the largest and most comprehensive Sanson atlases extant, and one of the rarest, bringing together over 200 maps, the contents reflecting the output of this very important publisher at the height of the firm's extent. Nicolas Sanson sr. (1600-1667) is considered the "Father of French Cartography". While not the first French mapmaker, he was the first French mapmaker/publisher to produce world and regional atlases in competition with the Dutch, then the pre-eminent map publishers in the world. Sanson was born in Abbeville, but relocated to Paris. He was by interest a historian, particularly of the classical world and, at an early age, started making maps to illustrate his researches. From here he broadened his interest and started producing contemporary maps. In recognition of his talents, in 1630 he was appointed Geographe Ordinaire du Roi. His career was held back by his lack of money, so he frequently worked in co-operation with other publishers, notably Pierre Mariette, who provided the capital and publishing experience, while Sanson created the maps. Their collaboration led to the Cartes Generales de toutes les parties du Monde, first published in 1658, although the constituent maps were prepared from 1648 onwards, and the maps dated between 1648 and 1658 as they were completed. The atlas was a commercial success and was reprinted several times. After Sanson's death, his heirs Guillaume and Adrien continued the business, publishing an edition of the atlas in 1670, but fell out with Mariette, accusing him of cheating them, and the collaboration between the two firms came to a bitter end, and there are no later editions of the Cartes Generales. However, existing plate stock was used to produce composite atlases, combining the new maps prepared by Nicolas in the mid-1660s, the new maps prepared by Guillaume in 1668 and 1669, with existing maps. These compilations are rare. However, as they form an overview of the mapping career of the Sansons, they tend to be contain many more maps than the'Cartes Generales.'. This atlas contains maps engraved or dated up to 1679; the later dated maps are among the rarest of the Sanson oeuvre. This volume contains 201 double-page maps, and 90 engraved text sheets, showing a hierarchical table of the divisions of the area depicted. A similar compilation exists dated 1667 (Bodleian) with maps dated up to 1688 (the British Library) and to 1703 (the David Rumsey collection); the Bibliothèque nationale de France website lists four copies, all smaller, with no reference to maps. cf.
