It was reprinted again in 1673. La Fontaine's CONTES ET NOUVELLES EN VERS were published in successive editions, with additions, from 1664 through 1674, and consist of "tales drawn from Ariosto, Boccaccio, Machiavelli, and other sources, mostly light licentious tales...devoid of serious thought, told with grace and charm. They have been gravely censured on the score of immorality, but they did not offend contemporary readers...La Fontaine, when converted in his old age, made a public disavowal of the CONTES" - OCFL. This printing, as well as that of the preceding year, are institutionally rare, with a single location of this printing in OCLC, at Princeton. TCHEMERZINE VI:372. BRUNET III:757.

        Apologie des grands hommes accusez de magie

      A Paris: chez Jacques Cotin, 1669. relié. in 12 (14,4x8,5cm). Edition originale, une autre édition est parue à la même date chez Besongné. Livre relativement rare mais célèbre. Plein Veau d'époque, dos à nerfs orné. Ensemble frotté. La coiffe supérieure est manquante au 2/3, un coin ne porte plus de cuir, une partie des bordures est dépourvue de cuir, quelques manques à l'endroit des nerfs. 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. Il fut successivement attaché au cardinal Barberin, au cardinal Mazarin (c'est lui qui se chargera de collecter les ouvrages de la bibliothèque de Mazarin), au cardinal Richelieu puis à la reine Christine, comme bibliothécaire également, à part le fameux 'Advis pour dresser une bibliothèque'. 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. - chez Jacques Cotin, A Paris _1669, in 12 (14,4x8,5cm), (24) 502pp., Un Vol. relié. - Un Vol. relié

        Amerique Septentrionale

      Paris: Chez Pierre Mariette, 1669. Copper-engraved map, in very good condition. 16 5/8 x 23 1/3 inches. 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 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.
