      London: Printed for Richard Chiswel, 1669. FIRST EDITION.

Contemporary panelled English calf (expertly rebacked), gilt floral ornaments at the corners FIRST EDITION. Skinner's Case, the name usually given to the celebrated dispute between the House of Lords and the House of Commons in the Parliament of the United Kingdom over the question of the original jurisdiction of the former house in civil suits. In 1668, a London merchant named Thomas Skinner presented a petition to Charles II asserting that he could not obtain any redress against the East India Company, which, he asserted, had injured his property. The case was referred to the House of Lords, and Skinner obtained a verdict for £5,000. The company complained to the House of Commons which declared that the proceedings in the other House were illegal. The Lords defended their action, and after two conferences between the Houses had produced no result the Commons ordered Skinner to be put in prison on a charge of breach of privilege; to this the Lords replied by fining and imprisoning Sir Samuel Barnardiston, the chairman of the company. Then for about a year the dispute slumbered, but it was renewed in 1669, when Charles II advised the two Houses to stop all proceedings and to erase all mention of the case from their records. This was done and since this time the House of Lords has tacitly abandoned all claim to original jurisdiction in civil suits." References: ESTC R202445. Wing H2459.

In several of the books which he printed in quarto size he set an illustrated title page in which various pictures from the life of King David were depicted, in order to hint at his own name: David.

BACKGROUND: The Satyricon, one of the most influential works of literature from Classical antiquity was ravaged by censorship and only a scattering of accepted authentic fragments from the larger lewd work have been rediscovered. The most important is the Cena Trimalchionis manuscript, a fragment variant discovered in 1423 by Poggio Bracciolini in Cologne and the first accepted as authentic manuscript to contain the principal surviving fragments of Books XIV-XVI, with the extant Satyricon's centerpiece, Book XV, The Dinner of Trimalchio. The manuscript was 'misplaced' in Florence, before it could be published. In one of the few fortunate moments of the Satyricon's long, convoluted history, it was rediscovered, in 1650, in the library of Nicolaus Cippicus in Trogir, Dalmatia by the scholar, Pierre Petit, aka Marino Statileo. First issued without the other fragments (1664), the printing was carelessly executed. For the first time in 1669 all fragments accepted as authentic to that time were published in a corrected text edition with an anthology of the most significant commentary on the work since the beginning of the Renaissance. JOAN BLAEU I [1596-1673]: Born in Amsterdam, eldest son of Willem Blaeu, he studied law and became a doctor of law, but in the 1630s he was made a partner in his father's highly successful printing business and upon his father's death in 1638, he became head and greatly expanded it. Although primarily remembered for the family's pre-eminent twelve volumes world atlas, the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, under Joan I, the Blaeu printing firm became the largest printing press in Europe, noted for their beautiful typography and engraving work.

[8], 456, [16] pp. Engraved title, printed title in red and black, 1 large folding map, 4 triple/quadruple folding plates, 20 double-spread plates and 71 half-page engraved plates. Folio, 318 x 200 mm, bound in full contemporary Dutch blind-stamped vellum. Amsterdam: Jacob Meurs, 1669. |~||~||~||~||~||~| First Edition with the absolute finest impressions of these magnificent, historically-important engravings. Arnoldus Montanus (1625-1683), Dutch missionary and editor of the present book, was responsible for both the highly significant text and and the arresting engravings that describe and illustrate Japanese customs and costumes, their cities, towns and villages, the flora and fauna, their religious ceremonies and practices, Japanese war practices, and a general recounting of Japanese history and culture. Montanus' book is especially renowned for the ninety-six, very fine engraved plates showing the coastal towns, ports and cities, including Osaka, Nagasaki, Tokyo, Sakai and Kyoto; plus a number of detailed engraved images of Japanese inhabitants in casual, formal and ceremonial costumes, interiors and exteriors of religious and imperial temples, a few gruesome images of beheadings, seppuku ceremonies, destruction of villages, and numerous action portraits of samurai, an earthquake destroying Tokyo, the Castle of Osaka, Japanese marriage ceremonies, and formal meetings between Western Ambassadors and the Japanese Imperial Court. The important folding map (420 x 530 mm) comprises two panels, the lower map charts the sea route along the coast from Nagasaki to Osaka, and the upper map shows the land route next to the coast from Osaka to Yedo (Tokyo). From 1641 the VOC (Dutch East India Company) were the only foreigners allowed to trade with Japan. The VOC had to renew permission to trade with Shogunate annually, which required a delegation to be sent from Deshima Island to the Shogun in Yedo. Montanus based his text on the unpublished reports from the VOC archives and on records of Jesuit missions to Japan in 1649 and 1661. Upper hinge repaired; internally clean and crisp. It is requisite to point out that only via this original Dutch edition can one acquire the finest impressions of these important engraved plates. Cordier, Bibliotheca Japonica 383.

He married the niece of Inigo Jones and became his personal assistant from 1628. On Jones' death in 1652, Webb inherited both a substantial fortune and his library of drawings and designs. In 1654 Webb designed the first classical portico on an English country house, at The Vyne in Hampshire. This book is the first extensive treatise on the Chinese language in any European language. In it Webb proposes that the Chinese language was the language that was spoken throughout the world before Noah?'s flood. He also discusses Chinese culture and the ancient origins of the Chinese empire.

He deplores the "faulty alphabets" of grammarians and names and analyses the physical parts of speech in pursuit of a basis for a universal language.

        A Sure Guide for His Majesties Justices of Peace: Plainly Shewing

      1669. A "Sure Guide" for Justices in the Early Years of the Restoration Sheppard, William [d. 1675]. A Sure Guide for His Majesties Justices of Peace: Plainly Shewing Their Duty, And the Duties of the Several Officers of the Counties, Hundreds, And Parishes, (Viz.) Sheriffs, County-Treasurers, Bridewel-Masters, Constables, Over-Seers of the Poor, Surveyors of the High-Wayes, And Church-Wardens, &c. With the Heads of the Statutes, Concerning the Doctrine and Cannons of the Church of England. Methodically Digested into LVIII. Chapters. Corrected and Enlarged. London: Printed by Henry Twyford, John Place, And Timothy Twyford, 1669. [viii], 64, 67-493, [5] pp. Text continuous despite gap in pagination. Title page preceded by copperplate pictorial title page dated 1663 reading A Sure Guide for His Majesties Iustice of Peace. Octavo (6-1/2" x 4"). Recent period-style calf, blind rules to boards, raised bands and lettering piece to spine, speckled edges, pictorial title page re-hinged. Moderate toning, light foxing and inkstains (from printer) to a few leaves, upper corner of leaf N (pp. 179-180) restored, minor loss to head-lines of a few leaves due to trimming, very small hole in title page due to paper flaw, internally clean. * Second and final edition, "corrected and enlarged." Active in the Protectorate, where he was Cromwell's legal advisor, Sheppard aimed to reform the common law. Ahead of his time in many ways, some of his proposals anticipate changes to the common law that were adopted in the nineteenth century. A Sure Guide was written to address the legal and religious consequences of the Restoration, most notably the re-establishment of the Church of England. This was more than a practical guide, however. As Nancy L. Matthews shows, "Sheppard recognized, however regretfully, that the restoration of the Stuart monarchy was the final act in the disruptive political drama of his generation and his shrewd analysis of how the law was being applied by the triumphal forces of Anglicanism was a forceful denunciation of the political abuses and technical shortcomings in the operation of contemporary law." Both editions of A Sure Guide are scarce. In North American law libraries, OCLC locates 3 copies of the first edition and 3 of the second (at Georgetown, the Library of Congress and York University).

        AMERIQUE SEPTENTRIONALE.

      Paris: Chez Pierre Mariette, 1669. - Copper-engraved map. Sheet size: 16 5/8 x 23 1/3 inches. In very good condition. The most important French map of North America of its generation, produced by the country's most esteemed family of cartographers. This very influential map was the official successor to Nicolas Sanson's 1650 map of North America. When Nicolas Sanson, regarded as the father of the renaissance of cartography under Louis XIV, died in July 1667, he left his flourishing business under the charge of his eldest son, Guillaume. The younger Sanson continued his father's partnership with the Mariette family, who were prominent Parisian printers. Guillaume was determined to publish a new, updated edition of his father's CARTES GENERALES DE TOUTES PARTIES DU MONDE, the first French general atlas, originally published in 1657. The map of North America that appeared in the atlas, although masterful, was now considered to be geographically outdated. The present map, which appeared in the second edition of the atlas, featured updated taxonomy, and is geographically based on Nicolas Sanson's wall map of 1666 (of which only two copies survive). While California is shown to be an island, in line with popular perception, unlike the map from 1650, it no longer attempts to build a geographical mythology in the place of the Pacific Northwest, which was then totally unknown. Appropriately, the magnificent baroque title cartouche, which features swags and ribbons held aloft by putti, has been placed to fill this enigmatic space. The map proved to be highly successful, and was used as a source on numerous occasions by future mapmakers. BURDEN, MAPPING OF NORTH AMERICA 404.

        Description Anatomique d'un Cameleon, d'un Castor, d'un Dromadaire, d'un Ours, et d'une Gazelle

      Fine woodcut vignette on title & five fine folding engraved plates. 120 pp. 4to, fine antique calf, spine nicely gilt. [Paris: F. Leonard, 1669]. First edition of the second publication of the "Parisians," a famous group of anatomists in Paris; their publications mark the beginnings of modern comparative anatomy. "The constitution of the French Academy of Science in 1666 established a school of morphology to which the modern development of comparative anatomy may be directly traced...The longevity of the early Parisian anatomists was remarkable...Their leader was the veteran Claude Perrault...it was due mainly to his influence that a number of the early members of the French Academy, who are often conveniently referred to in the literature of the period as the 'Parisians', laid the foundations of our modern knowledge of comparative anatomy."-Cole, A History of Comparative Anatomy, pp. 393-95 (& see pp. 393-425). The leading members of the "Parisians" were, beside Perrault, Guichard Joseph Duverney, Jean Pecquet, Moyse Charas, and Philippe de la Hire. "In June 1667 the Academy was invited to dissect a thresher shark and a lion which had died at the royal menagerie. The reports on these dissections were the first of a long series of anatomical descriptions, which ultimately included those of twenty-five species of mammals, seventeen birds, five reptiles, one amphibian, and one fish... "Although some of the discoveries on which the Parisians most prided themselves -- including the nictitating membrane that Perrault first observed in a cassowary, the external lobation of the kidneys in the bear, and the castoreal glands of the beaver -- had been observed earlier, no such detailed and exact descriptions and illustrations had been published before."-D.S.B., X, pp. 519-20.

        IL PUTTANISMO ROMANO, NUOVAMENTE RISTAMPATO CON L'AGGIUNTA D'UN DIALOGO TRA PASQUINO, E MARFORIO, SOPRA LO STESSO SOGGETTO & INSIEME, CON IL NUOVO PARLATORIO DELLE MONACHE. SATIRA COMICA DI BALTASSARRO SULTANINI BRESCIANO.

      LONDRA (ma Lyone o Ginevra), TOMASO BYET, 1669 - Elegante legatura settecentesca in piena pelle rossa con triplice filetto e roselline cantonali in oro ai piatti, titolo in oro su tassello verde e fregi floreali in oro agli scomparti del dorso, tagli dorati, dentelle interne dorate, sguardie marmorizzate. Al contropiatto anteriore ex-libris in pelle con Ex Museo Caroli Nodier, in oro. Frontespizio, 6 pagine non numerate; 272-176 pagine numerate (la prima numerazione parte  da pagina 3, secondo Melzi mancherebbe un occhiello ma potrebbe essere un errore di numerazione). L'autore fu un celebre libellista italiano, cattolico convertito al protestantesimo che Curzio Malaparte ebbe a definire "il più grande pamphlétaire italiano". Il volume è costituito da due opere di cui la prima in due parti:  da pagina 9 a 108 per il Puttanismo Romano; da pagina 109 a 272 per il Dialogo tra Pasquino e Morforio; seguono 176 pagine per Il Nuovo Parlatorio delle Monache. La prima e la seconda parte, Il Puttanismo Romano e il Dialogo, vennero pubblicate in forma anonima nel 1688. Nel Puttanismo,  attraverso la narrazione di dialoghi pruriginosi avvenuti  in un confessionale  si esprime una satira violentemente anticlericale,  attaccando la dissolutezza dei costumi della corte papale e del clero; nell'opera si narra che le cortigiane romane per contrastare la sodomia dilagante organizzino un Conclave per la successione di Papa Alessandro VI, passando al loro  particolare vaglio i cardinali del tempo. Nel Dialogo, si tratta del medesimo argomento ma attaccando altri argomenti altrettanto gravi, quali il nepotismo, l'infallibilità del Papa e l'Inquisizione. Nella seconda opera, Il Parlatorio,  pubblicata in prima edizione nel 1650,  Leti attacca gli ordini monastici femminili, la narrazione è divisa in 9  "finestre", 5 in più della prima edizione, dialoghi avvenuti appunto dalle finestre di un convento veneziano, tra i dialoghi particolarmente audci, quello dove si narra di una certa suor Clementia che affida a donna Agata l¿incarico di commissionare a un vetraio degli ¿strumenti di vetro così forte, che non possano più ricevere danno dall¿acqua calda¿ e soprattutto che non si rompano durante l¿uso sessuale che ne avrebbero fatto. Esemplare in buone condizioni, sporadiche fioriture o arrossatture alle carte. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
