[PERRAULT, Claude]
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 o … [Click Below for Full Description]

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).

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. … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: His Majesty's Printing Office, 1669. The history of the Book of Common-Prayer begins with its first appearance in 1549 during the reign of Edward VI. Edward, son of Henry VIII and Jane Seymour, was England's first Monarch raised as a Protestant. The purpose of the book was to standardize the forms of service in the Church. It included many features of Chruch service, the Psalms, and instructions for the consecration of Bishops, Priests, and Deacons of the Church. The book was not without controversy and, consequently, there were a number of revisions. Indeed, it was suppressed during the reign of Mary I when Roman Catholicism was restored as the dominant religion of the country. A revised edition of the Book was published in 1662. This revised version has remained the standard text into the present century. This particular copy was printed in 1669 and its contents reflect the revised edition. The significance of this edition lies partly with changes made on behalf of Presbyterians as suggested by Richard Baxter (1615-1691). The revised Book marked the beginning of the division between Anglicans and those known at the time as 'Nonconformists'. Another consequence was that 1,500 Ministers throughout the country, who could not accept the changes, were deprived of their positions. The addition of the Psalter or Psalms (1662 edition) marked the first appearance in the Book of Common-Prayer since the first edition in 1549. The specific features of this book are as follows: the boards are held by some awful green tape across the spine. The book cries out fo … [Click Below for Full Description]

A striking colonial manuscript chart of Maracaibo, signed by Emasabel. c1770. [Maracaibo]. Backed with linen, old folds now strengthened, captioning, index and title clearly legible and the colouring still very fresh, a few pieces missing at folds, but overall fine considering age and the use it might have had. 498 mm x 395 mm. A rare 18th century hydrographical chart of north-western Venezuela, executed in pen, ink and coloured washes; signed by the cartographer, a most uncommon characteristic. The cartographer, Francisco Xavier de Emasabel signs himself as ?Piloto de Altura?. It is not often we see manuscript charts signed by the maker. The map itself depicts the bay of Maracaibo in north-western Venezuela just to the north of Lake Maracaibo. It notes the cities of Maracaibo, which was sacked by Henry Morgan in 1669, and Altagracia. Ms. hydrographical chart executed in pen, ink and coloured washes. Finally the map´s cartouche includes an extensive numbered key to the most significant geographical points in the region (26 numbers). A compass rose and the cartouche embellish the map. In the ?Extractos de las juntas generales celebradas por la Real Sociedad Bascongada de los Amigos del Pais en la villa de Bilbao por Julio de 1787? there is reference to a Francisco Emsabel ?Capitan del puerto de Deva ofreció tres mapas marítimas que trabajó á instancia de los Pilotos del comercio de Cádiz?, however, whether it is the same as the creator of this map or not we haven´t been able to stablish.

Cowley, Abraham
London: 1669: Printed by J.M. for H. Herringman. Printed: 1669. 1618-1667 Folio, . Second printing Thic copy has a very good impression of the frontispiece portrait of Cowley engraved by Faithorne This copy is in good condition internally. It is bound in full contempory calf which has been skillfuly rebacked. One of the most celebrated poets of his day, and one whose reputation scarcely outlasted his lifetime, Cowley was the posthumous son of a wealthy London stationer. He was educated at Westminster School and Trinity College, Cambridge, where he took his BA in 1639, was made a fellow in 1640, and became MA in 1643. Like Richard Crashaw he was deprived of his fellowship by the Parliamentary party during the Civil War but, also like Crashaw, had already left Cambridge when this happened. He joined the king at Oxford, and departed for France with the queen, Henrietta Maria, in 1644 as a secretary. Ten years later he came back to England and was immediately imprisoned; upon his release he appears to have submitted to the Cromwellian regime but some doubt exists about his true motives and his submission may have been a cloak for Royalist activities. During this time he studied medicine at Oxford and became MD in 1657. "At the Restoration Cowley's fellowship was restored and he was granted land by Henrietta Maria. Thereafter he lived a retired life at Chertsey, devoting his time to botany and to writing of the essays which were the only part of his work that continued to be read. "Cowley was writing at the age of 10 and had published two romantic epics by the time he was … [Click Below for Full Description]

L'auteur, quoique homme d'esprit, n'a pu se d?fendre des pr?jug?s de son temps sur les plus importants objets de l?gislation. Il fait pourtant preuve d'un esprit critique. En particulier, il s'?l?ve contre les pers?cutions des protestants, propose des moyens pour diminuer le nombre excessif des moines et religieuses, des mesures pour rem?dier ? la v?nalit? des charges, ? l'injustice et au crime. Il s'?l?ve en outre contre le c?libat civil, source de m?urs dissolues. ? L'esprit lib?ral et critique qui inspira cet ouvrage d?plut fortement ? Louis XIV. L'auteur en est qualifi? par Bourgeois et Andr? (n?2969) de pr?curseur de Vauban et de l'abb? de Saint-Pierre. Il est g?n?ralement admis que cet ?crit valut ?
