        Institutio logica, et philosophiae epicuri syntagma

      Ex Officina Johannis Redmayne, Londini [i.e. London] 1668 - [12], 118, [14], 288pp. 'Philosophiae epicuri syntagma, Continens Canonicam, Physicam, & Ethicam' has a separated dated title, pagination, and register. A handsome and well preserved copy in contemporary blind-stamped speckled calf, the lightest of rubbing to extremities, some surface loss to upper board. Marking to title-page of first work, tear to text of A9, without loss of sense, horizontal tear through D4 of second work, again without loss of sense, small competent paper repair to bottom margin of L7, very small hole to L10, touching text without loss of sense. Two works by French philosopher Pierre Gassendi (1592-1665), the second of which sought to replace the dominant philosophical system of Aristotle with the logic, physics and ethics of Epicurus. Gassendi's work Philosophiae Epicuri syntagma (Lyon, 1649) had been gaining traction in philosophical circles in Commonwealth and Protectorate England, notably finding publication in a free English translation by Walter Charleton (Physiologia Epicuro-Gassendo-Charltoniana: or A fabrick of science natural, upon the hypothesis of atoms, London 1654) and further exposure in Thomas Stanley's History of Philosophy. Demand was evidently sufficient to provoke Roger Daniel's son-in-law John Redmayne to print this second edition in 1668, the first having appeared in 1660. ESTC R10973, Wing G294. Size: 12mo

      75, [5, all blank], 15 pp. 8vo, attractive modern paste-paper wrappers. Amsterdam: J. Waesberge & the Widow E. Weyerstralt, 1668. First edition of this rare catalogue of the contents of the laboratory and the library of the great chemist Glauber (1604-70), which he was offering for sale due to ill health. This is a fascinating and unique record of the holdings of a mid-17th century chemical laboratory as well as of the scientific books in the library of one of the leading chemists of the period. In 1655, after having studied in chemical laboratories in Paris, Basel, Salzburg, and Vienna, Glauber (1604-70), moved to Amsterdam where he outfitted what was surely the most impressive laboratory in Europe. He "has justly been called the best practical chemist of his day and the first industrial chemist. His instructions for the improvement of laboratory technique were instrumental in preparing the way for the chemical revolution of the next century."-D.S.B., V, p. 419. The first 75 pages describe the contents of the laboratory including pharmacological preparations, numerous chemicals, and apparatus. The final fifteen pages list 42 titles in folio, 38 in quarto, 62 in octavo, and 25 in duodecimo, with an additional 32 titles of unbound 8vo books, including his own publications, all from Glauber's library. Fine copy. ❧ Duveen, p. 259-"Contains a description of apparatus and preparations for sale by Glauber. The list of books at the end is very interesting consisting mainly of books on natural science, published in German and Holland in the first half of the 17th century." Ferguson, I, p. 323-"A very curious and probably unique list." Partington, II, pp. 341-61.

        Le Triomphe de la Crois, Contenant Les Trois Etats de la Perfection Chretinne... Dedie a la Reyne [dedication copy]

      The dedication copy bound and dedicated to the Queen of France, Marie-Therese d'Autriche the wife of the Sun King, Louis XIV. Sumptuous full red morocco, all edges gilt, with inner dentelles and marbled endpapers, Marie Therese's arms appear centrally on both boards with her cypher in the corners of the panels and five times in spine compartments with tiny fleur de lys within the triple fillet that forms the panels. A pencilled annotation by the French book collector the Comte de Lignerolles (1817-1893) on the verso of the first marbled endpaper notes the book's status as the dedication copy: a four page dedication to the Queen follows the title page. In her dedication Levesque praises the Queen in typically eulogistic terms for her 'rare Vertu' and the peace that she brings to Spain and France 'par la belle alliance de Vostre tres-haute, tre-illustre, tres devote, & tres-vertueuse Personne, avec le plus grand, & le plus invincible de tous les Monarques, Louis XIV, Roy de France, & de Navarre; Unissant les deux plus brillantes Couronnes de l'Univers'. Intended to bring an end to the war between France and Spain, the marriage in 1660 of Marie Therese ((known in English as Marie Theresa of Spain) and Louis produced an heir but very little happiness for either participant. This dedication by Levesque was made just after one of Marie-Therese's periodic moments of real power when she had assumed a Regency during Louis' absence on war service in 1667. Louis XIV remains one of the most well-known French monarchs due to his lavish lifestyle, many mistresses, political achievements and high self-esteem. He was also responsible for a lavish programme of artistic and cultural patronage including the establishment of academies of arts and science, the pursuit of antiques and treasure across the globe and a vast building programme that included the palace of Versailles. As a consequence Paris became the cultural capital of Europe and Louis and his wife attracted the sort of dedication exemplified in this beautiful book. PROVENANCE: book label on front pastedown: 'Ex Bibliotheca G Nordback'; Inscribed by Comte de Lignerolles; Sotheby's, May 27, 1983, lot 490, £620.

        Les Principes de la philosophie

      It is in 1644 that Descartes wrote in Latin Principia philosophiae, with attention to clarify and give a sound and rigorous basis to philosophy, to erect the unshakable foundations. The first premise of philosophical research, this is the reason, and his method of deduction. The Cartesian project is a project of universal knowledge, not only philosophical. Principia follow the Discourse on Method (1636) and Meditations (1641). The aim of the work is prodigious, Descartes wants to provide a new metaphysics based on the cogito, which creates a new classification of knowledge and a new moral reflection, which it operates by the revolution, gave birth to the Enlightenment .

        Les principes de la philosophie escrits en Latin par René Descartes et traduits en François par un de ses amis. Reveus, & corrigez en cette dernière édition.

      Paris, Théodore Girard, 1668, in 4°, de 28ff.n.ch., 477pp., 1f., ill. de 91 figures sur bois in t. certaines répétées, dont 21 à pl. page, et une grande planche gravée se dépl., pl. veau brun époque, dos orné, appartenance découpée au f. de titre avec restauration ancienne, sinon bel exemplaire. Réédition de l'édition augmentée de 1659. Elle fut partagée entre Michel Bobin, Nicolas Le Gras et Théodore Girard. Les Principia Philosophiae parurent d'abord en latin en 1644, c'est une des oeuvres majeures de Descartes, et le succès en fut considérable. On se souvient que cette oeuvre importante dans l'histoire de la pensée contient en particulier la célèbre théorie des tourbillons. La version française fut en partie faite par son ami Claude Picot, mais elle comporte aussi des additions qui sont de Descartes lui-même. ¶ Guibert Descartes 129/130 - "The principia philosophia contains Descartes'famous vortex theory by which he tried to reconcile Copernican astronomy with biblical teaching. It also contains the first scientific theory of magnetism". "The most comprehensive of all Descartes'works... its three treatises embrace the whole of his philosophy... . Descartes'design in this treatise was the elaboration of a general theory which would account for the creation and the structur of the world. At the outset he scorfully rejected the whole apparatus of qualitates occultae, employed so freely by the scholastics, and in its place he tried to substitute a rational explanation of the phenomena of nature grounded upon human intelligence and erected upon the mathematical model. In this way he indicated the only solid path ever pursued by physical science, namely, its reduction to the laws of mathematics... ". (Scott p. 158) - DSB IV.51

        Drop-title:] Risposta . alle considerazioni fatte sopra alcuni luoghi del suo libro della forza della percossa del R. P. F. Stefano de gl' Angeli . all'illustrissimo . Michel Angelo Ricci.

      Messina [after 29 February, 1668] - 4to (235 x 170 mm), pp 37 [3, blank], with numerous woodcut illustrations in text; a very good uncut, unpressed copy in plain wrappers.First edition of this rare work, a response by Borelli to criticisms published by the mathematician Stefano degli Angeli regarding Borelli's De vi percussionis (1667), and a work due to which Borelli 'can be credited to be the first person to have examined in quantitative detail the deflection that falling bodies undergo due to the earth's diurnal rotation' (Theo Gerkema, On Borelli's analysis concerning the deflection of falling bodies, 2009). The issue at the centre of Angeli's criticisms and Borelli's response concerns the path of a falling body in relation to the movement of the earth. The primary object of Angeli's attack was the Jesuit astronomer Riccioli who, in his Astronomia Reformata of 1665, 'provided a list of seventy-seven arguments against Copernicanism. The Jesuits had great difficulty accepting that different motions could be combined without one of them overpowering and annulling the effects of the other. A key feature of Riccioli's position was that there were observable differences in the behaviour of bodies depending on whether the Earth was in motion or not. Since observations showed the effects he expected on a stationary Earth, he concluded that the Earth does not move. In this extreme form, his views about composition of motion were rather isolated? This issue, however, involved not only the composition of motion but also the motions being composed, and this was an area of considerable uncertainty.'Following a preliminary essay sent anonymously to Riccioli in 1666, Borelli put forward his arguments in De vi percussionis (Bologna 1667). He argued that the trajectory of a body dropped from a tower in the hypothetical situation of a rotating Earth would be an irregular curve resulting from a uniform curvilinear motion acquired from the Earth's rotation and a uniformly accelerated one ? Stefano degli Angeli entered the controversy against both Riccioli and Borelli. His attacks created considerable embarrassment because the Angeli was a closet Copernican and a student of Cavalieri's, just as Borelli had been a student of Castelli's. As Koyr

In England tax collection was always lagging behind, so Downing made such Orders as these assignable "for value received", no doubt at a substantial discount, here to Edward Backwell, one of the greatest financiers of his age, and whose accounts for many years have survived. Downing also insisted that "lenders yesterday" should be paid before "lenders tomorrow", that is "in course". Hence the "registration", so that Backwell would only receive his money after some "321220 l. 19s. 4d." had already been paid out of the Hearth Tax. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        La religion du médecin, c'est à dire : description nécessaire par Thomas Brown [sic], [...] touchant son opinion accordante avec le pur service divin d'Angleterre

      s.l, s.n, 1668. 1668, 1668, in-12, (12), 360, (2)pp, frontispice, pleine basane XVIIIe, dos à 4 nerfs, pièce de titre en maroquin havane, tranches rouges (importantes restaurations du dos), Première édition française de cet ouvrage qui parut, en 1642, en anglais sous le titre Religio Medici, et qui fut dès 1644 traduit en latin. L'édition latine fut souvent réimprimée, accompagnée d'annotations et commentaires explicatifs. Le traducteur français, Nicolas Le Febvre, suit le texte latin. La formulation générale du titre, "la religion du médecin", ne témoigne pas du contenu du livre. Il s'agit d'une oeuvre toute personnelle, où, d'une part, Browne, se défend contres les accusations pour athéisme et développe son approche singulière du fait religieux ; et où, d'autre part, il égrène ses avis sur de nombreux sujets du temps. "La religion du médecin aurait tout aussi bien s'intituler, au dire de Bayle, Le médecin de la religion. Thomas Browne affirme sa foi chrétienne, mais ne veut dépendre d'aucune église". Ainsi, en 55 chapitres courts, dans un style alliant préceptes et paradoxes, moral et ironie, Browne étudie, tout en s'y impliquant et en affirmant son opinion, les fondements de la religion et de la morale, la magie, les esprits, les démons, les apparitions, les songes, la pierre philosophale, les pauvres, le mariage, la musique, etc. L'ouvrage, dans sa version latine, fut mis à l'index des livres interdits par décret du 18 mars 1645. Browne pratiqua la médecine à Norwich . Il est considéré comme l'un des plus grands auteurs du XVIIIe siècle et comme l'un les plus singuliers. Ex-libris manuscrit ancien : "Moisson".

Deslauriers was one of the actors of the Hotel de Bourgogne.From the library of Mr. La Roche-Lacarelle. Bookplates in number, a million and two C intertwined.

        Les Mémoires de feu Monsieur le Duc de Guise

      Paris, Edme Martin, Sébastien Mabre-Cramoisy, 1668, in 4°, de 4ff. 795 pp., pl. veau moucheté époque, dos orné, plats frappés aux armes de Jacques-Maire Leboeuf, Marquis de Valdahon, colonel d'artillerie (O.H.R. pl. 371), (Ex-libris Robert d'Avril comte de Burey, et Bernard Jubin), bel exemplaire. Edition originale de ces Mémoires rédigés en fait par Philippe Goibaud Du Bois à la demande de Saint-Yon, secrétaire du duc. Henri de Lorraine (1614-1664) cadet destiné au clergé, fut archevêque de Reims. Il ne devint 5e duc de Guise qu'en 1640 après la mort de son frère aîné le prince de Joinville. Son caractère brouillon et instable en fit la fable de son époque. Ces mémoires relatent surtout l'entreprise extravagante de la révolte de Masaniello en 1647, pour asseoir les prétentions familiales sur le royaume de Naples, qui se solda par un lamentable échec (il fut prisonnier des Espagnols de 1648 à 1652). Il tentera une seconde campagne contre Naples en 1654, mais échouera aussi. ¶ Bourgeois & André Sources 785.

        Les Principes de la Philosophie. Escrits en Latin, ... Et traduit en François par un de ses amis. Reveus [sic], & corrigez en cette derniere edition.

      Paris: Chez Theodore Girard, dans la grand salle du palais ... Avec privilege du Roy. 1668 [lvi], 1-(479)pp. Engr. title, woodcut illus., one folding table. 4to. Contemp. full sprinkled calf, spine gilt in compartments & with raised bands; some minor expertly executed repairs to spine & extremities. A v.g. copy.Descartes' monumental philosophical treatise was first published in Latin, as Principia Philosophiae, in 1644. It expanded on ideas first considered in Discours de la méthode pour bien conduire sa raison ..., of 1637. It was in Principia Philosophiae that Descartes defined his theory of conscious reasoning, neatly encapsulated in the now iconic phrase, cogito, ergo sum - 'I think, therefore I am'. The first French edition of Principia Philosophiae appeared in 1647, translated by Descartes' friend in Paris, Abbé Claude Picot, 1614-1688. It was slightly expanded from the Latin edition, in that it included as a preface, a letter from Descartes to his translator in which he discusses the substance of his philosophy, and reaction to it by fellow scholars.

The book is a collection of 34 historical novels, each new being followed by Christian and moral reflections. Jean Pierre Camus is indeed the first to have used fiction, ie secular means in a spiritual edification. Camus believed in the virtues of entertainment effect, as new present in this book are exclusively literary, only "reflections" that follow remind us of the spiritual project (not religious), this is all the more surprising that the modern French novel was in its infancy. The style is simple, without affectation, and Plutarch mentions. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

It is traditionally accepted that, like his memoirs, these embassies were also written in prison, but it is unclear how such a place, Bassompierres was able to achieve such a work that required extensive research and access to archives, as well as the work seems to be that much of a historian; it bears the mark in its writing and structure; but it has been initiated, to be carried out in collaboration to complete the work memory. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

        Edinburgh, the ninth day of May, one thousand six hundred and sixty eight.

      Printed by Evan Tyler 1668 - 2 sheets, folio (each approx. 40 cm x 331 cm), printed on one side, woodcut royal arms at head of first page, main text in black letter, a little worming (without serious loss), lower edges slightly frayed, sometime folded to docket size, 1 panel on the verso of the second sheet dust-soiled, and endorsed, . The Act of Indemnity was passed in 1667 in the wake of the Pentland Rising, 15-28 November, 1666. The Rising originated in Dalry in Kirkcudbrightshire when a number of soldiers stationed to exact fines were held captive after beating an elderly man who had defaulted, and the following day more soldiers were imprisoned for taking part in a scuffle with the locals. Two days later a crowd of around 200 rebels marched to Dumfries, and then, gathering reinforcements on the way, headed towards Edinburgh. Bad weather, insufficient provisions and a poor choice of route brought about a serious depletion in their numbers, and on reaching the outskirts of the city they were easily routed during the brief Battle of Rullion Green in the Pentland Hills. The defeated rebels were treated cruelly. The Rising is the subject of an essay by Robert Louis Stevenson, his first published work. This Proclamation provides the names and places of habitation, parish by parish, of about 220 rebels who refused to accept the terms of the Act. A few occupations are given, including a book-binder from Lanark. Only the NLS copy in Wing and the ESTC. (ESTC R183355)
