Aesop.
12mo. Bruxelles: François Foppens, 1669. 12mo, engraved general title (trimmed with slight loss at foot), (8), 412, (8, index)pp. With 147 engravings in the text by Pieter Van der Borcht. Recent full calf, marbled edges, gilt backstrip, black label. A good clean copy though trimmed a little close to the top edge (but not touching text). Ownership signature at front in ink of Joseph Heughan dated 1899 and an earlier note in ink: "Edition très jolie et très rare..." and two ink initials on the title-page. § Well represented in libraries but a scarce little edition in commerce. It was translated by Pierre de Boissat who was probably also responsible for the moral reflections attributed to Jean Baudoin. The text and illustrations were reprinted in 1920 as a private press book in Germany.

Pierre Joseph Olivet (Thoulier d') (1682-1768) Grammairien, ami de Boileau et professeur de Voltaire, membre de l'Académie française, il est l'un des rédacteurs les plus actifs du Dictionnaire.
L'abbé d'Olivet, membre de l'Académie française, fait un compte-rendu minutieux d'une audience accordée par le garde des sceaux dans l'affaire concernant une publication attribuée à son correspondant qui risque de déboucher sur une expertise en écriture des plus délicates. Puis il en vient à une publication licencieuse et il lui donne un certain nombre de conseils. «J'en reviens, cela étant, à l'impression que je vous ai déjà proposée, La vie du Fripon [roman picaresque et subversif de Francisco de Quevedo, auteur du sulfureux Heurs et malheurs du trou du cul], avec les pièces qui servent de preuves. Il est hors de doute que l'ouvrage exciteroit un cri public, qui ne pourroit avoir que de bonne suites. Comptez qu'il reste ici bon nombre de gens qui pensent comme il faut sur votre sujet. C'est ce que j'ai remarqué mieux que jamais par la manière dont on m'a demandé de vos nouvelles depuis mon retour. Vous connoissez M. Levier, libraire de La Haye.

Belle lettre de Colbert, entièrement autographe, écrite à la période de l'apogée du règne de Louis XIV, et qui en est d'une certaine manière le reflet, évoquant la construction d'une escadre pour la marine et l'achat d'étoffes précieuses pour le service du roi.

The Second Part of the Institutes, an exposition of "many ancient and other statutes" including Magna Carta, was published by order of the House of Commons after the author's death. It is a landmark work because it offered a novel interpretation of Magna Carta. Reflecting contemporary struggles between the king and Parliament, Coke presented the charter as the ancient constitution of England, one that established the fundamental rights of Englishmen and placed royal power under the laws of the land. Perhaps the most famous section is Coke's commentary on the 29th chapter, in which he traced the origins of trial by jury and the right of habeas corpus. English Short-Title Catalogue R30266.

PIGNORIA, Lorenzo
Amstelodami: Andreae Frisii, 1669. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Lorenzo Pignoria's 'Mensa Isiaca' is known to be the first significant study on Egyptology and the history of Ancient Egypt. The name of the work comes from the most famous Egyptian artifact named the Mensa Isiaca, a bronze tablet with Egyptian hieroglyphs on it. Pignoria, after examining the tablet, believed that it was a piece describing Egyptian ritual ceremonies including human sacrifice! Third and best edition which includes 42 impressive engravings! This edition is famously printed and published with another of Pignoria's works -'Magnae Deum Matris Idaeae' - a treatise on the cult of roman gods Cybele and Attis. These works include impressive illustrations of coins, gods, mummies, gods, artifacts, and much more. Pignoria notably referenced Athanasius Kircher's esoteric and Egyptian studies, particularly the illustrations.

(WINE). CHARLETON, WALTER
London: Printed by R.W. for William Whitwood, 1669. FIRST EDITION. The two discourses here reflect the wide-ranging interests of scholar and physician William Charleton (1620-1707), whose writings covered religion, philosophy, physics, physiology, zoology, and psychology. In the first essay he examines Wit, which he defines as "the natural capacity of understanding," examining the physical and psychological causes of varying degrees of cognitive ability. According to Hunter & Macalpine, he was the first English writer to formulate a concept of the brain function, clearly pointing the way to the modern concept. Noting the similarity of the anatomic structure of the brain, but the diversity of "wit" in animals and humans, Charleton foresaw that the answer lay in future research "to find the true uses of all the several parts of the Brain." The work is cited by Lowndes for its influence on John Locke. The second discourse is a paper Charleton presented to the Royal Society on ways of preventing putrefaction of wine, and techniques to remedy defects in various types of wine. The additional oenological essay contains advice on the stages of fermentation, the times to rack wines, and also provides recipes for correcting minor defects in color, clarity, and taste. It is the work of physician and scientist Christopher Merret (1614/15-95), the first person to document the addition of sugar to wine in order to provoke a second fermentation that would turn it into a sparkling wine. Appropriately, our copy was once in the collection of wine merchant Frederick William Cosens (1819-89). … [Click Below for Full Description]

Edition originale. Marque de l'imprimeur en page de titre, une vignette aux armes de Clément VI.Reliure en pleine basane brune mouchetée d'époque. Dos à nerfs richement orné. Pièce de titre de basane brune mouchetée. Une fente en tête. Une tache blanche en queue. Frottements. Bon exemplaire. L'ouvrage est une réponse au livre du ministre protestant Claude, qui lui-même était une attaque contre un livre d'Aubertin. L'oeuvre d'Arnaud et Nicole dépasse le simple cadre de la polémique et de la contestation des arguments du livre de Claude, il se veut un traité exhaustif de l'eucharistie et des mystère de la saint messe en accumulant les preuves historiques, notamment celles empruntées à l'église d'orient. Arnauld et Nicole, théologiens de Port-Royal, se firent les champions de la querelle religieuse contre les protestants. L'eucharistie était un point du dogme catholique intouchable, le nier comme le firent les protestants, c'était remettre en cause le principe de la transubstantation avec le corps du Christ et la possibilité de la grâce, et démonter les rituels de la messe et sa nécessité. C'est pourquoi la littérature polémiste sur l'eucharistie et la grâce est si importante, les deux églis … [Click Below for Full Description]

WINE). CHARLETON, WALTER
London: Printed by R.W. for William Whitwood, 1669. FIRST EDITION. The two discourses here reflect the wide-ranging interests of scholar and physician William Charleton (1620-1707), whose writings covered religion, philosophy, physics, physiology, zoology, and psychology. In the first essay he examines Wit, which he defines as "the natural capacity of understanding," examining the physical and psychological causes of varying degrees of cognitive ability. According to Hunter & Macalpine, he was the first English writer to formulate a concept of the brain function, clearly pointing the way to the modern concept. Noting the similarity of the anatomic structure of the brain, but the diversity of "wit" in animals and humans, Charleton foresaw that the answer lay in future research "to find the true uses of all the several parts of the Brain." The work is cited by Lowndes for its influence on John Locke. The second discourse is a paper Charleton presented to the Royal Society on ways of preventing putrefaction of wine, and techniques to remedy defects in various types of wine. The additional oenological essay contains advice on the stages of fermentation, the times to rack wines, and also provides recipes for correcting minor defects in color, clarity, and taste. It is the work of physician and scientist Christopher Merret (1614/15-95), the first person to document the addition of sugar to wine in order to provoke a second fermentation that would turn it into a sparkling wine. Appropriately, our copy was once in the collection of wine merchant Frederick William Cosens (1819-89). … [Click Below for Full Description]

Landtag Bayern 1669 - Handschrift des Protokolls, 529 Seiten
wohl München 1669. Deutsche Handschrift auf Papier, Titelseite + 265 nummerierte Blatt im Folio-Format. Format: 32,5 x 21,3 x 5,5 cm. Restaurierter Halbpergament-Einband der Zeit mit altem handschriftlichen Deckelschild. In schöner gleichmäßiger Handschrift. -- Zustand: Nur leicht fleckig. Über die Politik von Ferdinand Maria (Quelle: wikipedia): Kulturpolitik: Durch Ferdinand Marias Ehefrau Henriette Adelaide von Savoyen zog der italienische Barock mit zahlreichen Musikern, Künstlern und Architekten in Bayern ein. Gleich bei der Ankunft der Kurfürstin 1652 wurde die Münchner Hofgesellschaft mit der lebensfrohen italienischen Hofkultur der Savoyardin konfrontiert. 1657 wurde das Opernhaus am Salvatorplatz in München fertiggestellt, das erste freistehende auf deutschem Boden. 1660 entsteht ein Turnier- und Redoutenhaus am Hofgarten. Der Bevölkerung bleiben jedoch die Hofvergnügungen, auch das Opernhaus, verschlossen. Nach der Geburt des langersehnten Thronfolgers Max Emanuel 1662 gab das Kurfürstenpaar Schloss Nymphenburg und die Hofkirche St. Kajetan zu den Theatinern in Auftrag. Mit diesen Bauten hält der italienische Hochbarock Einzug in München. Eine gemeinsame viermonatige Italienreise des Kurfürstenpaars wurde 1667 zwar auch zu einem Papstbesuch in Rom genutzt, bedeutete aber vor allem eine weitere kulturelle Bereicherung. Bei Schloss Berg am Starnberger See wurden mit einer venezianischen Flotte von Gondeln um den Bucentaur Feste gefeiert, obwohl Ferdinand Maria ansonsten mit höfischer Prachtentfaltung eher sparsam umging.

Included are many observations and conclusions with respect to the persistence of optical images, by which Castelli explained the perception of motion, the illusion of forked tongues in serpents, and other phenomena. In the same treatise he recommended the use of diaphragms in telescopes to impede transverse rays, anticipating Hevelius. His discussions of the camera obscura, the inversion of images on the retina, and of cataract (from which Galileo had recently lost his sight), although less novel, are not without interest.'More celebrated is Castell's discussion of heat in a series of letters to Galileo (1637-1638) and particularly his experiments with the absorption of radiant and transmitted heat by black and w … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 slumbere … [Click Below for Full Description]
