        Les vrayes centurie (i.e. centuries) et propheties de Maistre Michel Nostradamus, ou se void represente tout ce qui s'est passe, tant en France, Espagne, Italie, Allemagne, Angleterre, qu'aux autres parties du Monde. Revues et corrigees suivant les premieres editions imprimees en Avignon en l'an 1558 (sic) et à Lyon en l'an 1558. Et autres. Avec la vie de l'autheur

      Paris: Jouxte la Copie d'Amsterdam. A Paris, chez Jean Ribou, 1668. Nouvelle edition. Very good. 12mo (140 x 85 mm). (32), 178 pp. With a portrait of Nostradamus and frontispiece engraving of the 1666 Fire of London, and of the execution of Charles I. Bound in contemporary, no doubt original, drab boards, spine lettered in manuscript, signs of wear (not objectionably so) and gentle use, with some underlining in the text. Rare in the original cartonnage binding, completely unsophisticated. Equally remarkable is the engraved frontispiece which is reproduced by Ian Wilson in his important biography: “Nostradamus: The Man Behind the Prophesies” (Macmillan, 2007, p. 259). Wilson describes the engraving thusly: “The images of Charles I's execution in 1649 and the Great Fire of London in 1666 shows that contemporaries accredited Nostradamus with having predicted both these events.” This edition contains, in addition to the XII "Centuries," the 141 "Presages" derived from those made by Nostradamus in 1555 et seq., as well as the "Other Predictions of Mr. Nostradamus for the current years in this century." This "Nouvelle edition" appeared the same year, and in the same format, as the Amsterdam edition referenced on the title-page (published by Jean Jansson). Dorbon, Bibliotheca Esoterica 349.

La prima premessa di ricerca filosofica, questa è la ragione, e il suo metodo di deduzione. Il progetto cartesiano è un progetto di conoscenza universale, non solo filosofica. Principia seguire il Discorso sul metodo (1636) e Meditazioni (1641). Lo scopo del lavoro è prodigiosa, Cartesio vuole fornire una nuova metafisica sulla base del cogito, che crea una nuova classificazione di conoscenze e una nuova riflessione morale, che opera con la rivoluzione, ha dato alla luce l'Illuminismo . - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition de la traduction de l'Abbé Picot, ornée d'une planche dépliante.

Quelques travaux de vers en marge basse intérieure, sans atteinte au texte et quelques pâles mouillures. Dernière garde abîmée en marges. C'est en 1644 que Descartes écrivit en latin les Principia philosophiae, avec le soucis de clarifier et de donner un base saine et rigoureuse à la philosophie, d'en ériger les fondements inébranlables. Le premier postulat de la recherche philosophique, c'est la raison, et sa méthode : la déduction. Le projet cartésien est un projet de science universelle, et non pas seulement philosophique. Les Principia font suite au Discours de la méthode (1636) et aux Méditations métaphysiques (1641). L'ambition de l'ouvrage est prodigieuse, Descartes veut fournir une nouvelle métaphysique reposant sur le cogito, qui engendre une nouvelle classification des connaissances et une morale neuve, réflexion, qui par la révolution qu'elle opère, donnera naissance au siècle des Lumières.

        Chymista scepticus vel dubia et paradoxa chymico-physica, circa spagyricorum principia...

      Rotterdam:: Arnoldi Leers, 1668., 1668. 12mo. [xxvi], 392 pp. Added engraved title, woodcut title-page vignette, decorative initials; edges browned. Original full vellum, ms. spine title. Ms. paper spine label. Fine. SECOND LATIN EDITION, corrected [first Latin issue was in 1662]. Boyle's best-known work. In it, Boyle denounced the chemistry of his day, opposed the iatrochemists' doctrine of the three principles (salt, sulphur, and mercury), and the four elements of the Aristotelians. Boyle put forth his own theory of corpuscles, thereby defining the elements as separate entities. "The Sceptical chymist is concerned with the relations between chemical substances.... In this sense the book must be considered as one of the most significant milestones on the way to the chemical revolution of Lavoisier." Printing and the mind of man.

        Aesop. The Fables of Aesop Paraphras'd in Verse: Adorn'd with Sculpture, and Illustrated with Annotations. The Second Edition. By John Ogilby, Esq; Master of His Majesties Revells in the Kingdom of Ireland.

      London:: Printed by Thomas Roycroft, for the Author, 1668., 1668. 2 volumes. Tall 4to. [iv], 211, [1]; [iv], 231, [1] pp. Titles printed in red & black. With the rare portrait of Ogilby - a total of 150 engraved plates [by Wenceslaus Hollar, Barlow and Stoop], historiated initials, head and tail pieces; pl. facing p. 59 with marginal tear; vol. II, pp. 111-2 + facing plate with edges tears (small piece missing, no loss of plate or text), pls. facing p. 138 + 157 with marginal tears. Vol. I: Original blind and gilt-tooled calf (mismatched bindings); rebacked in similar calf, gilt-stamped leather spine label, later endleaves. Vol. II: Original full suede leather; rebacked to match, leather spine label, later endleaves, edge worn. Bookplate of Frances Thomas de Grey Carl Cowper, Panshanger, (1834-1905), the seventh Earl Cowper. Second edition (first issued in 1651). This is one of the most important illustrated books issued in seventeenth-century England, including some of the best work of Wenceslaus Hollar. "In 1665, Ogilby produced a folio edition of this work; the larger format required larger plates, and Ogilby employed Wenceslaus Hollar to "transmute Cleyn's leaden images into golden ones" (Hodnett, Barlow 143). Hollar re-did fifty-seven of eighty plates, and the rest were copied from Clein by Dirk Stoop. In 1668, Ogilby followed up on the success of this volume with AEsopics: or, A second collection of fables, paraphas'd in verse, adorn'd with sculpture, which included fifty new fables and thirty-eight new illustrations, half by Hollar, and most of the other half by Barlow. The first volume was published again in 1668, and both volumes were re-issued in 1673 and 1675." -Acheson "The political edge of the fables is particularly pronounced in the late seventeenth-century Aesops, which were published within a period of political conflict for an audience with an appetite for political analysis, allegory, and opinion. Both of the men responsible for the late seventeenth-century Aesops, John Ogilby and Francis Barlow, were involved with contemporary politics, even if their commitments were as much shaped by professional and commercial opportunities as they were by principle or ideology: Ogilby was a royalist polemicist, and Barlow published a set of prints supporting the Whig cause during the Popish Plot and its aftermath. While it is probably true, as is often said, that the fables have not received critical attention equal to their level of popularity and ideological importance in early modern culture, the quality and thoroughness of existing studies offer an excellent grounding in the cultural importance and impact of the verbal texts of Aesop's fables in early modern England... The collections of fables published by Ogilby (first in 1651) and Barlow (first in 1666) were very different kinds of books than the many versions printed before them, and their illustrations were an important part of their appeal and interest. These were expensive folios directed at adult audiences, generously illustrated with high-quality etchings designed by distinguished artists and executed by some of the best engravers working in England at the time." - Katherine Acheson, "The Picture of Nature: Seventeenth-Century English Aesop's Fables," The Journal for Early Modern Cultural Studies, Vol. 9, No. 2 (Fall/Winter 2009). John Ogilby (also Ogelby, Oglivie) (1600-1676) was a Scottish translator, impresario and cartographer, best known for publishing the first British road atlas, he also translated works and was noted for publishing his work in handsome illustrated editions. His first edition of Aesop was published in 1651, featuring illustrations by Francis Clein [Cleyn]. In 1665 he published a second, revised edition of The Fables of Aesop, this time illustrated by Wenceslaus Hollar's renowned prints, just one year in front of the great London fire. See: Katharine S. Van Eerde, John Ogilby and the Taste of His Times, Dawson, 1976; Edward Hodnett, Aesop in England: The Transmission of Motifs in 17th Century Illustrations of Aesop's Fables, Clark Library, 1979.

        Sermam historico , e panegyrico, do P. Antonio Vieyra da Companhia de Jesu, prégador de Sua Magestrade, nos annos da Serenissima Rainha N.S. Offerecido a Sua Magestade pello R.P. Manoel Fernandez, da mesma Companhia, Confessor do Principe Regente.

      Lisbon, Na Officina de Ioam da Costa, 1668. - 4°, disbound. Woodcut arms of Portugal on title page, woodcut and typographical headpieces. Light dampstains. Short tear at lower edge of title page, touching rule. A few printed side-notes shaved. Overall good condition. 36 pp. *** FIRST EDITION. Vieira (1608-1697) is described by Boxer as "certainly the most remarkable man in the seventeenth-century Luso-Brazilian world" (A Great Luso-Brazilian Figure: Padre António Vieira, S.J., p. 4). Born in Lisbon, he moved to Bahia as a child and there became a Jesuit novice in 1623. By 1635, when he was ordained, he was already famous as a preacher, and when the Dutch withdrew from Brazil it was he who was chosen to preach the victory sermon. Vieira, a trusted advisor of D. João IV, was sent by him on diplomatic missions to France, Holland and Rome. Beginning in 1652 he spent nine years as a missionary in Maranhão, where he vehemently defended the rights of the Indians against the colonists who wanted to enslave them. As a result, the colonists managed to have him and all the other Jesuits in Pará and Maranhão deported in 1661. Back in Lisbon, his campaign for toleration of the New Christians (crypto-Jews) and his Sebastianist beliefs led to his trial by the Inquisition. He was found guilty, but the ascension of the future D. Pedro II as regent in 1668 led to his release. Vieira?s status as a diplomat and missionary would guarantee his letters a place in Portuguese history, but his style and content are also exceptional: his letters and state-papers are invaluable sources for the period, and his sermons are as readable today as they were in the seventeenth century. Pessoa dubbed him "O Imperador da lingua portuguesa" (quoted in Boxer, ibid., p. 3).*** Backer and Sommervogel, VIII, col. 655. Leite, História da Companhia de Jesus no Brasil, IX, 216.

Collation: [†]2[-1], A-L8, M5 [Lacks imprimatur leaf [†2] and ads leaf [M6]]; Pagination: [xxxiv], 149, [5] pp. Modern paneled calf, gilt spine title. Some minor stains, some repaired (some holes left unrepaired) marginal worm-trails, A6 repaired margin. Bookplate of University of Keele, presented by C. W. Turner; early signature of Henry Richardson title. RARE. First Edition of Glanville's defense of the Royal Society as encouraged by Oldenburg. Glanvill defended the researches of the Royal Society in a long address to the Society and he was admitted as a member and earned a reputation as a "potentially valuable apologist." ... "The address won Glanvill election to the Royal Society and a reputation as a potentially valuable apologist. When Thomas Sprat's History of the Royal Society failed to silence the critics, Oldenburg encouraged Glanvill to write a supplementary defense, which appeared in 1668 under the title Plus ultra. Its main theme is that the experimental philosophy, and the Royal Society in particular, have accomplished more to advance useful knowledge in a few years "than all the Philosophers of the Notional way, since Aristotle opened his Shop in Greece." - Dictionary of Scientific Biography. Glanvill (1636-1680), "His style is often admirable, not infrequently recalling that of Sir Thomas Browne. His intellect was versatile, active, and sympathetic, but he is rather rhetorical than logical. In his dislike to the scholastic philosophy he followed Bacon and the founders of the Royal Society. Though he was in this direction a thorough-going skeptic, he was opposed to the materialism of Hobbes...." - DNB. "In his technological utopia NOVA ATLANTIS, Bacon had cited the great inventions already made - from the wheel and the plow to the telescope, gunpowder, and the printing press - and had envisaged scores of others to come. Reading Glanvill we get the impression that Bacon's dreams had come true. We get the impression that Glanvill's age was far superior to all past ones by the sheer bulk of what it had achieved. And Ganvill does not confine himself to an enumeration of these achievements - as Bacon seems to do when he exposes them in a kind of museum - we are made aware of an ongoing process of which we become the onlookers. We breathe the air of incipient progressivist thinking - the future is open or, in Glanvill's words, "Geometry is improving daily." (1668; p. 37)." - Yaron Ezrahi, E. Mendelsohn, Howard Segal, (editors), Technology, Pessimism, and Postmodernism, University of Massachusetts Press, 1995. Wing G820.

Met potlood staat op schutblad: 'Verboden boek', maar deze titel komt niet voor in Knuttels 'Verboden boeken' (1914).$Gregorio Leti (Milaan 1630 - Amsterdam 1701) woonde in zijn jeugd bij zijn oom, een R.K. prelaat en leerde de intriges van het pauselijk hof van nabij kennen. Hij schreef verschillende anti-katholieke boeken en ging over naar de protestantse godsdienst. Pietro Aretino (Arezzo 1492 - Venetie 1556) wordt wel de eerste kunstcriticus genoemd. Hij verkeerde in de kringen rond paus Leo X, maar moest in 1524 Rome ontvluchten omdat hij sonnetten had geschreven bij pornografische gravures van Marcantonio Raimondi. Hij vestigde zich daarna in Venetie en schreef over kunst en kunstenaars en maakte gedichten en toneelstukken, veelal expliciet op seksualiteit gericht. In zijn Ragionamenti (1534-1536) laat hij prostitiue's uit Rome het morele verval van bekende inwoners van die stad aan elkaar verhalen. Als uitgever wordt Pieter Koelaart genoemd, maar in 1708 werd deze titel opgenomen in een fondslijst van Timotheus ten Hoorn en Koelaart blijkt dus een pseudoniem van de uitgever Ten Hoorn, die bekend staat om zijn libertijnse uitgaven.

        De Chirurgia Infusoria, ...

      Lipsiae, Aoud Nicolaum Scipionem, 1668, 4, 64 pp., feiner Halbpergamenteind im Stil d.Zt. feines Eexemplar. Selten - Erste Dissertation zur Infusion in Deutschland - Hochbedeutende medizinisch-pharmazeutische "Dissertationem Medicam De Chirurgia Infusoria, Iussu & Autoritate Gratiosae Facultatis Medicae in alma Lipsiensi Pro Loco In eadem obtinendo, P.P. Michael Etmuller, Phil. & Med. Doct. Respondente Georgio Friderico Stirio, Vratislaviensi Silesio, Philiatro, Ad diem 30. Octobr. Anno M.DC.LXIIX. H.L.Q.S."."Elsholtz war nicht der einzige und wahrscheinlich nicht einmal der erste, der solche Versuche unternahm. Michael Ettmüller berichtet in seinem Buch "De chirurgia infusoria", daß der Jäger eines Edelmannes aus der Lausitz im .Jahre 1642 Hunden Alkohol in die Venen injiziert habe und sie damit betrunken macht. Ettmüller hat außerdem bereits klar erkannt, daß diese intravenöse Injektion therapeutisch dann in Betracht kommt, wenn eine Veränderung der Medikamente im Verdauungskanal ausgeschaltet werden soll oder wenn eine Aufnahme der Arzneistoffe von der Speiseröhre aus nicht möglich ist, also bei Schluck Unfähigkeit aller Art oder bei Resorptionsstörungen. Auch in England wurden 1657 auf die Anregung von Christopher Wren (1632-1723), der nicht einmal Arzt, sondern Baumeister, Astronom und Chemiker war, und bald danach von R. Lowe ähnliche Versuche zwecks Durchführung von Gefäßinjektionen und Infusionen angestellt. Der Chemiker Robert Boyle (1627-1601), der diese Versuche von Wren mit Opiumlösungen an Hunden miterlebte, berichtet darüber "Kaum hatten wir den Hund losgebunden, als schon die Opiumtinktur ihre narkotische Wirkung auszuüben begann, und sowie er auf den Füßen stand, begann er mit dem Kopf zu wackeln, zu schütteln und zu taumeln und war dann betäubt, daß man für sein Leben fürchten mußte. Die Kenntnis dieser Versuche scheint zunächst nicht allzu verbreitet gewesen zu sein. Jedenfalls nimmt J. D. Major (1634-1693) im Jahre 1667 in seiner "Chirurgia infusoria" und im "Ortus et progressus clysmaticae novae" das Verdienst für sich allein in Anspruch, dieses Verfahren erdacht zu haben." Hans Haas, Spiegel der Arznei: Ursprung, Geschichte und Idee der Heilmittelkunde (1956), p.128Michael Ettmüller (1644-1683) "habilitirte sich 1676 als Privatdocent an der medicinischen Facultät, wurde 1681 zum Professor der Botanik, bald darauf zum a. o. Professor der Chirurgie ernannt. Er vereinigte mit einer umfassenden Gelehrsamkeit eine grosse praktische Befähigung und wurde ein eifriger Vertreter der durch Sylvius de la Boe begründeten Chemiatrie, deren Grundsätze er mit großer Gewandtheit auf Physiologie und Pathologie anzuwenden verstand, so dass sein Ruf als Lehrer eine grosse Zahl von Studirenden nach Leipzig zog. Als besonders bemerkenswerth sind hervorzuheben die 'Dissertatio de chirurgia infusoria' (Lipsiae 1668), in welcher er das Ergebniss seiner Versuche mit Infusion verschiedener Arzneimittel in die Venen von Thieren mittheilt" Hirsch/H.

      4°, 19e- eeuws kartonnen omslag (los), 40 pag. C1282."Niet in Knuttel (variant Knuttel 15824); NNBW IV 354; Te Winkel V 84. De Utrechtse hoogleraar Petrus Burman (1668-1741) voerde tussen 1709 en 1715 een hevige wetenschappelijke strijd tegen zijn vijanden. In die zelfde tijd werd hem een proces aangedaan door 'een minderwaardig vrouwspersoon' (NNBW) wegens defloratie. 'Omtrent den afloop van het proces bestaat geen zekerheid, doch de diepe verontwaardiging waarmede Burman in zijn geschriften alle schuld ver van zich werpt, doet vermoeden dat hij het slachtoffer is geworden van een tegen hem gericht boos opzet.' (NNWB). Burman zou eind 1708 tijdens de Utrechtse kermis Dina van Woudenberg uit Den Haag, dochter van Dina van Spangen, wed. Jan van Woudenberg, hebben bezwangerd. De processtukken uit deze jaren verschaffen een uitvoerig verhaal over de gebeurtenissen waarbij een aantal inwoners van Utrecht een rol4, 398, en: Daniel Voet, dokter Verreyn, de advocaat Oosterhout, Karel van den Hengel; Jan en Jacques Terwe, de arts Huybert van Wijkersloot, de boekdrukker Gerrit van Muntendam, de arts Hendrik Spoor, notaris Lobbrecht, prof.

        Choice and experimented receipts in physick and chirurgery, as also cordial and distilled waters and spirits, perfumes, and other curiosities / Collected by ... Sir K. Digby ... Translated out of several languages by G[eorge] H[artman].

      London:: Printed for the author, and ... sold by H. Brome, 1668.. Small 8vo. [8], 308, [12] pp. Frontispiece portrait engraved by Cross; margins worn. Modern full speckled calf, brown gilt-stamped spine label, raised bands, blind and gilt-tooling, endleaves renewed. Very good. First edition, second issue, issued posthumously. After Digby's death, his assistant [“steward”], George Hartman, issued “three major collections of his medical, culinary and chemical recipes.” (Huston-Rubin p. 46). The first edition was issued in two states with “Printed for the Author” on the title. The second state, adds the bookseller, “H. Brome.” This copy does not include the longitudinal half-title associated with the first issue. “The volume deals mainly with receipts and prescriptions for different ailments, but incidentally there is a little practical chemistry in the preparation of the compounds employed. Among them the product of the destructive distillation of tobacco, which was used for the cure of ulcers, and which even by external application caused sickness, is described.” – Ferguson. ¶ The example of his mad-dog bit recipe was to take ale, treacle, rue, tin shavings, boil together, etc., take two spoonfuls [as needed], “It is excellent for Man or Beast.” (pp. 114-5). ¶ This book contains a plethora of medicinal recipes including rose water (p. 296), oxymel for fevers, cochinile for “purple fever” [“After twice or thrice doing this, and keeping the patient very warm, the disease will break out in spots, and they will escape...” – p. 11]. In another case, treacle [molasses] stewed with white wine for half an hour, is recommended against fever [“ague”] while also being put to bed, cover warm to sweat, the cure will come after two or three applications (p. 13). ¶ Dugan, in her history of perfumes, makes point of the “widespread belief in – and access to – herbs and objects used as aphrodisiacs in the period.” Holly Dugan, The Ephemeral History of Perfume: Scent and Sense in Early Modern England, (p. 220). ¶ Another section offers remedies for pregnant women, “To cause a good delivery in a woman with child” (p. 62) [fry onions in oil till tender, add water, boil, strain, and drink every day for 3 weeks prior to delivery [“women that have had the most dangerous labours till they took this, have no difficulty afterwards”]. A more remarkable recipe is recommended “To bring away the After-burthen, or any Foulness of a Dead-child, and to Cure the After-throws and Griping, after a Woman is delivered.” For this one needs wrinkled inner skins of hen gizzards that are laying eggs, wipe clean, dry, beat to a powder, give with a bit of white wine ... repeat as needed. The poor woman who endured this application “For the breast and belly of women lying in” – take Sperma Caete, pure white virgin-wax, melt together, add wine, heat, and dip in a linen cloth, large enough to cover her torso, a hole for each breast “for the nipples to come out” – then after delivery, “she must put on these” add flax pickled loose to cover, some flax under the arm-holes, etc., all over the belly, etc., and apply every day for eight days, “this shall so preserve, that there is not the least wrinkle or crack in the breast or belly after bearing children” (p. 69).

        Itinerario para Parochos de Indios

      Rare first edition. According to Sabin, this is "One of the most interesting accounts of the Indies, their laws, privileges, religion, etc." Peña Montenegro (1596 - 1687) was Bishop of Quito (Ecuador), a position of the outmost importance and influence which granted him access to Spanish policy towards the Indians in the New World and the practical efficiency of the Spanish treatment towards them; Kraus says "(Peña Montenegro) is of the highest importance for the knowledge of the laws regarding the missions among the Indian population: it contains the decrees, rules and regulations for the parish priests as missionaries". The work contains important references of the Missions and the costumes of the natives, reminding the clergy to respect their nature and adapt to their costumes. Peña condemns as a sin accepting a missions without knowing the native language -and thus urging the clergy to learn the local language instead of only promoting the Spanish. The work contains references to tobacco and excessive smoking -extremely early mention-, mining and idolatry amongst others. Provenance, manuscript ownership inscription on title page "Don Juan de Zeballos" and a cancelled inscription. Extremadamente rara primera edición de esta obra fundamental de Americana. Según Sabin, se trata de "Una de la mas interesantes obras referentes a las Indias, sus leyes, privilegios, religión, etc.". Peña Montenegro (1596 - 1687) fue Obispo de Quito, posición de singular importancia e influencia que le ganó el acceso a la política de España hacia los Indios en el Nuevo Mundo y la eficiencia práctica del tratamiento de los Españoles a ellos. Kraus dice, refiriéndose a Peña, que "es de la mayor importancia para el conocimiento de las leyes de las misiones entre la población indiana: contiene decretos, reglas y regulaciones para los sacerdotes de parroquia y misionarios".

Carlo Tomaso Maillard di Tournon ... con la facoltà di Legato a Latere nell' impero della Cina, e regni dell' Indie Orientali seguita nella citta di Macao, li 6 del mese di Guigno dell' anno 1710.Forli, Fasti, "17012" [= 1712]. Small 8vo (14.5 x 10 cm). Contemporary stiff wrappers covered with brocade paper.

      Cordier, Sinica, col. 912; WorldCat (2 copies); not in Löwendahl; Lust. First and only edition of a rare account on the confinement and death of cardinal Charles Thomas Maillard de Tournon (1668-1710), written by the Italian friar Giovanni Pellegrino Dandi (1664-1726).In 1702 Tournon was appointed by the Roman Catholic church to promote the Catholic faith in China and the East Indies, to establish harmony among the missionaries there and to enforce the decision of the Holy Office against the further toleration of the so-called Chinese rites among the native Christians. He headed for India (Pondicherry) in 1703 and later went to the Coromandel Coast. On 11 July 1704 he set sail for China by way of the Philippine Islands, arriving at Macau on 2 April, and at Beijing on 4 December 1705. The Kangxi Emperor received him kindly at first, but upon hearing that he came to abolish the Chinese rites among the native Christians, he demanded from all missionaries on pain of immediate expulsion a promise to retain these rites. At Rome the Holy Office had meanwhile decided against the rites on 20 November 1704, and being acquainted with this decision, the legate issued a decree at Nanjing on 25 January 1707, obliging the missionaries under pain of excommunication to abolish these rites. Thereupon, the emperor ordered Tournon to be imprisoned at Macau and sent some Jesuit missionaries to Rome to protest against the decree. Tournon died in his prison, shortly after being informed that he had been created cardinal on 1 August 1707. The mission and legation of Tournon is described in detail by Killian Stumpf in his Acta Pekinensia.Spine slightly damaged. Good copy.

Important diplomatic relations man who was a nobleman and a great military on the case of the Valetine to Spain and Switzerland, and that the proposed sister of the King and the Prince of Wales in England marriage. All articles and letters to track realistic monitoring of diplomatic missions (a historical introduction allows each to take the challenge of each embassy): these missions which greatly interested the show France's position with Louis Bassompierres XIII. Upon his return and after taking part in the siege of La Rochelle, he was thrown into the Bastille for 12 years intrigues by Richelieu. 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.

Importantes relations diplomatique de celui qui fut un grand seigneur et un grand militaire concernant l'affaire de la Valetine auprès de l'Espagne et de la Suisse, et celle du mariage projeté de la soeur du roi et du Prince de Galles en Angleterre. Ensemble d'articles et de lettres de qui permettent de suivre réalistement le suivi des missions diplomatiques (une introduction historique permet chaque fois de saisir l'enjeu de chaque ambassade) : ces missions qui intéressaient grandement la France prouvent la position de Bassompierre auprès de Louis XIII. A son retour et après avoir pris part au siège de la Rochelle, il fut embastillé durant 12 ans pour intrigues par Richelieu. Il est traditionnellement admis que, à l'instar de ses Mémoires, ces Ambassades furent écrites également en prison, mais on voit mal comment, d'un tel lieu, Bassompierre eut pu réaliser un tel ouvrage qui nécessitait de nombreuses recherches et un accès aux archives, d'autant que l'oeuvre parait grandement être celle d'un historien ; elle en porte la marque dans son écriture et sa structure ; mais elle a pu être initiée, être réalisée en collaboration pour compléter l'oeuvre des mémoires.

      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.
