        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 The map of North America that appeared in the atlas, although masterful, was now considered to be geographically outdated.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.

Corbet Owen (1646-1671), Latin Poet, Scholar of Christ Church, Oxford (described as a strange student), later studied medicine, but died shortly after qualifying. A long, very artificial and confused poem in Latin verse, chiefly in irregular metres imitating Pindar's Odes. Strange words and phrases are employed, with a weird use of italics.

        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]

Palissot lui reprocha plus tard ses « intrigues romanesques », et La Harpe « une versification flasque et incorrecte » , Boileau disait de lui qu'il n'était « qu'un cadet de Normandie ». Voltaire dit, qu'exception faite de Racine « il était le seul de son temps qui fût digne d'être le premier au-dessous de son frère ». Voltaire dit ailleurs que c'était un « homme qui aurait une grande réputation s'il n'avait point eu de frère ».

      A Paris, chez Claude Barbin : au Palais, sur le Perron de la Sainte Chapelle, 1669. 1669 - 1 vol. in-4° (242 x 186 mm.) de : 4 ff. (Titre, Le libraire au Lecteur, Extrait du Privilège du Roy), 422 pp. Nombreux ornements typographiques (17 bandeaux, 14 lettrines, 9 culs-de-lampe, 1 en frontispice). Plein veau d’époque, dos à cinq nerfs orné, roulette dorée sur les coupes, tranches mouchetées. (coiffe sup restaurée, texte: grafitis à l'encre et taches angulaires en fin de volume, défauts d'usage). Edition originale de cette très rare relation de François Bertaut (1621- ca. 1701), considérée comme l’une des plus intéressantes sur l’Espagne du 17ème. François Bertaut est le fils de Pierre Bertaut, gentilhomme ordinaire de la Cour et de Louise Bessin de Mathonville, de la famille espagnole de Saldagne, qui passa sa jeunesse en Espagne parlait couramment castillan. Anne d’Autriche l’employa pour sa correspondance familiale, et fit ensuite de sa fille Françoise, sœur de François, sa femme de chambre. François Bertaut, connut une carrière intéressante : entré comme séculier dans l’état ecclésiastique il fut pourvu en 1641 d’une chapelle en Normandie, puis du Prieuré du Mont aux Malades, dont il est nommé Prieur en 1644. Il participe à quelques faits d’armes, et voyage en Espagne (1638, avec M. de la Trémouille pour une affaire de succession, voyage qui lui permettra d’être moins surpris par la suite), en Italie, en Allemagne et en Suède (avec l’ambassade de M. de la Tuilerie auprès de Christine de Suède). Homme de lettres et musicien, sa compagnie est apprécié, notamment à l’Hôtel Rambouillet, mais aussi à la cour, si bien qu’il est nommé Lecteur Ordinaire du Roi en 1651. Son intimité avec le Roi lui vaut l’hostilité de Mazarin qui lui coûte sa fonction en 1657, mais en 1659, il est nommé Conseiller au Parlement de Normandie puis de Paris. A ce titre, il parvient à entrer dans la suite de M. de Grammont qui se rend en Espagne à la même période, pour célébrer la victoire récemment acquise. Lors de ce séjour, il envoie des lettres à sa sœur, et le recoupement de passages de cette correspondance avec des extraits du présent ouvrage à permit de le lui attribuer avec certitude. Sa facilité avec la langue et la culture et son habitude des voyages font de lui un observateur intéressant, d’autant plus qu’il prépare ce voyage, important pour lui car il lui permet de découvrir ses racines en se documentant.une fois en Espagne, il ne se cantonne pas à Madrid, et circule dans tout le pays, recueillant des témoignages oraux et consultant fréquemment les bibliothèques pour se renseigner sur la région qu’il traverse. Il est reçu très aimablement et particulièrement dans le Sud, où il apporte des nouvelles de ce qui s’est passé à Madrid et de la réception du maréchal de Grammont. Très complète et truffée d’anecdotes recueillis auprès des Espagnols, la relation se caractérise également par sa mesure dans les jugements portés sur les Espagnols et sa tempérance. Elle est une source que l’on retrouve chez de grands écrivains de la fin du 17ème, comme Bossuet et Mme d’Aulnoy. Exemplaire en reliure d’époque d’une insigne rareté. (Dernière apparition dans une vente publique : 1978, édition de 1682. 1 exemplaire de cette édition de 1669 référencée sur World Cat dans une bibliothèque du Texas). 1 vol. 4to. Numerous borders, endpieces and ornamental initials. Contemporary full calf. First edition of this scarce account by François Bertaut (1621- ca. 1701), considered one of the most interesting on Spain for the 17th century.

        Amerique Septentrionale

      Chez Pierre Mariette, Paris 1669 - A lovely, rich impression of the first state of among the most important French maps of North America of the second half of the 17th century, 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 in the care of his eldest son Guillaume. The younger Sanson continued his father's partnership with the Mariette family, who were prominent Parisian printers. Guillame 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 toponymy, 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. Cartographically the map appears to be based on Sanson's maps of "Le Canada, ou Nouvelle France" and "Le Nouveau Mexique, et La Floride." Lake Erie is shown in a recognizable form and the entire Great Lakes network is shown in greater detail than his father's map, although the western lakes are still open-ended. On the East coast, Long Island is shown and the shape of the Outer Banks is improved. Several Indian tribes are identified in New Mexico where the R. del Norte (Rio Grande) mistakenly flows from an interior lake and empties into the Mar Vermeio ou Mer Rouge (Gulf of California). Iceland now appears in the Atlantic, as well as a bit of Britain. The map proved to be highly successful, and was sourced on numerous occasions by other mapmakers. The present copy is an example of Burden's first state of the map; a second state would be issued in 1690. Burden, The Mapping of North America I , 404; (first state) McCorkle, New England in Early Printed Maps , 669.4; McLaughlin, California as an Island, 45; Wagner, Cartography of the Northwest Coast of America , 399; Tooley, "California as an Island," 8 in Tooley, The Mapping of America.

        Synopsis Criticorum Aliorumque S. Scripturae Interpretum. In five volumes

      76 - London - Typis J. Flesher 1669 - A scarce and early set of Poole's controversial seventeenth-century synopsis and critical interpretation of biblical commentators. Complete in four volumes bound into five. Contains: Vol I. Complectens libros omnes a Genesi ad Jobum -- Vol II. Complectens libros biblicos Jobi, Psalmorum, Proverbiorum, Ecclesiastis & Cantici Canticorum -- Vol III. Complectens Prophetas omnes, tum majores, tum minores, nobis dictos -- Vol IV. Complectens omnes libros Novi Testamenti &Epistolas universas et Apocalypsin. Matthew Poole [Pole] (c. 1624-1679) was a biblical commentator, known for authoring many controversial publications. The great work of Poole's life was the Synopsis criticorum aliorumque sacrae scripturae interpretum, a synopsis of the critical labours of biblical commentators. He commenced his studies for the project in 1666, and took ten years to complete it. During this time he would rise at three or four in the morning, take a raw egg at eight or nine, and another at twelve, and continue at his studies until late in the afternoon. The prospectus for the Synopsis bore the names of eight bishops and five continental scholars, besides other divines. Simon Patrick, Tillotson, and Stillingfleet, with four laymen, acted as trustees of the funds raised by subscription for the project. A royal patent for the work was granted on 14 October 1667. Four thousand copies were printed, and sold relatively quickly. The work constituted an important compendium of biblical commentary and exegesis, condensing into brief notes a great deal of study. In April 1693 the work was placed on the Roman index. The Synopsis was originally produced in Latin for a scholarly audience; afterwards Poole began a smaller series of annotations in English for a broader, less educated readership. DNB. Condition: In full diced calf bindings. Externally, worn. One hinge weak, one hinge strained, and three boards detached but present. Leather coming away from the boards and spines in several places. Some loss to the leather of the spines. Copperplate ink inscriptions to the front endpapers and titlepages. Light foxing to the endpapers but otherwise generally clean. Marginal tidemarks to several pages. Small tears to the corner of the final page of Volume I and the first few pages of Volume III. Overall: GOOD ONLY. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Synopsis Criticorum Aliorumque S. Scripturæ Interpretum. [Volumen I]

      E. Flesher & T. Roycroft, London [Londini] 1669 - Londini [London]: Typis E. Fletcher [ulque ad I. Sam. deinde a II.R e.g. inclusive ad finem Voluminis] & T. Roycroft. Prostat apud Cornelium Bee in vico Little Britain. Anno Domini MDCLXIX [1669]. First Edition. Contact for anterior collation. In "In Genesin", 1,247 pp. "In "I Samuelis" (Pars Posterior), 1,027 pp. Elephant Folio, approx 15.75" tall. Full leather with six spine ribs, decorative tooled panels at covers. Very massive volume barely fits on a large-format scanner (see scans); too heavy for spine scan. Chip at spine top, roughening at spine bottom, general moderate scuffing. Some creasing and very faint waterstaining to initial few leaves. Minimal foxing. Hinges relatively strong. Overall, Very Good. The first volume of Matthew Poole's opus, a life work in which he surveyed and encapsulated a wide variety of religious writings on both the Old and New Testaments. Poole, born in York in 1624, graduated from Emmanuel College in Cambridge in 1645, and succeeded Anthony Tuckney at St. Michael-le-Querne church, but would shortly thereafter leave the pastorate; as a strict Presbyterian, he resigned his living rather than conform to the Act of Uniformity. William Lloyd (later Bishop of Worcester) suggested that Poole then undertake his life's masterwork, the Synopsis. Viewed as a usable summary of then-extant religious writings from (almost] every source imaginable, the Synopsis is, in fact, an exercise in conciseness, as difficult as that may be to imagine of a set of five mammoth elephant folio volumes [of which this is volume 1 only]. Poole later decided to make the Synopsis - which was, and is here, written entirely in Latin - more accessible to the common man by producing an English version, but died in 1679 before he could complete this. John Howe and others did see to the ultimate completion of the English version. See scans. L2OKSH [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Traité Des Tournois, Ioustes, Carrousels, Et Autres Spectacles Publics.

First Edition of this early work on the staging of public festivals. Menestrier, a French Jesuit and antiquary, was responsible for arranging all aspects of some of the most dramatic of those during the reign of Louis XIV. Among his more notable productions were the festivities occasioned by the King's visit to Lyons in 1658, when he had the students of the Collège de la Trinité perform two ballets of his composition, and those celebrating the marriage of Françoise de Valois with the Duke of Savoy. Included here are chapters on carrousels, quadrilles, floats, recitals, devices and emblems, mascarades, horses and other animals used in festivities, tournaments, combat and staged attacks, military diversions and public spectacles of the Turks, &c. The large engraved headpieces depicting jousts, processions, and festivities are by Claude Derbage. "Ménestrier's [treatise] is still imbued with the thought processes of the renaissance. He opens his book by tracing the origins of tournaments back to antiquity in which such spectacles combined the rites of religion with military exercise and learned allusions. He goes on to discuss Roman circuses and combats and the symbolic nature of such tournaments, above all the choreographed carrousel in witch the movements of the horses and riders echoes the courses of the heavens.

Gabriel Naudé (1600-1653) est né à Paris. Il était médecin mais davantage philosophe car il avait étudié également la littérature et la philosophie, de tous ses livres l'apologie est le seul qui nous soit resté.

C'est un héritier de l'humanisme qui prône le retour à un rationalisme strict, cet ouvrage en est l'application, accréditant qu'il faut exercer son jugement et étudier les causes et les effets avant que de condamner. On trouve de nombreux renseignement précieux sur les accusations et les pratiques de nombreux hommes, Gallien, Raymond Lulle, Albertus Magnus, saint Thomas d'Aquin, en même temps qu'une défense des accusations qui ont été portés contre ces hommes, Naudé démonte les croyances sur les démons, la pierre philosophale et ce qu'elles recouvrent.

Sehr seltenes Zeugnis früher deutscher Kolonialbestrebungen. J. J. Becher (1635-1682) war ein berühmter Chemiker und Volkswirt sowie “typisch barocker Projektenmacher” (NDB I, 690). Er wurde von Friedrich Kasimir von Hanau-Münzenberg beauftragt, mit der Westindischen Kompagnie der Niederlande über den Kauf von Land zu verhandeln. Am 18. Juli 1669 wurde der Vertrag in Hanau abgeschlossen und mit großem Aufwand gefeiert. “Becher wrote this pamphlet as propaganda for the colonisation project. He describes the fertility of the soil, the methods that should be enployed in cultivation, and appeals enthusiastically to German patriotism for the colonisation of this land … But the project was violently criticised and never became reality” (Borba de M.). - The scope of the book was to make propaganda for founding a German colony on the territory between the Orinoco and Amazonas. The author, Becher, was the first to promote this entreprise and on his instigation Count Frederic Casimir of Hanau was in 1669 invested by the Dutch West India Company with this territory extending over 3000 square miles. - Mit der großen (48 x 37 cm), meist fehlenden Karte. - Sehr breitrandiges, unbeschnittenes Exemplar.
