        Portails d'Eglise a Italienne nouvellement invente par Jean le Pautre.

      - (No place, no publisher, no date). Complete series of very fine etched title and 5 plates, showing church façades in the Italian manner, with scales of measurements. ca. 21,5 x 14,7 cm on leaves of ca. 29,3 x 18,4 cm.*Not in Fuhring, I.F.F., or any of the other usual bibliographies (kind information of Dr Peter Fuhring). Unrecorded edition. An unknown engraver copied the plates in reverse from the original series, which was invented and etched by Jean Lepautre (first edition Paris, ca. 1670). In the original series five of the plates are divided into a left-hand and right-hand side, showing variants of the proposed façades. In the present series the façades are symmetric, so left-hand and right-hand side are the same. Also different from the original series is the fact that in our series NONE of the façades is placed against a sky. For the original series compare I.F.F. XVII, 12, Nos. 2120 - 2121, 2124 - 2125. Beautiful baroque designs for church façades in two stories, adorned with statues, balustrades, 3 plates with domes above the crossing. Invented by the famous French architect and ornament designer Jean Lepautre (Paris 1618 - 1682). - Stain in blank margin of 2 leaves, lightly browned; nice set with ample margins.[(4471)] [Attributes: First Edition]

        Valerius Maximus cum selectis variorum observat et nova recensione A. Thysii.

      Lugd. Batavorum Ex Officina Hackiana 1670 - 8vo, 180 x 113 mms., pp. [xvi], 844 [845 - 876 Index], including engraved title-page. BOUND WITH: Cornelius Nepotis. Vitae Excellentium Imperatorum, Observationibus ac Notis variorum Uberioribus illustratae, Accurante, Roberto Keuchenio ICto et Historiarum Professore. Lugd. Vatav. et Roterod. Ex Officiana Hackiana 1667. 8v9,m 180 x 113 mms., pp. [xxiv], 377 [378 - 392 Index, including engraved title-page. 2 volumes in 1, bound in contemporary vellum, with yapp edges, with the autograph "Wilhelm von Samson/ Bevall 1800" on the verso of the front free end-paper; spine a little soiled, but a very good copy. The anecdotes and memorable sayings of the rhetorician Valerius (fl. 14AD - 57AD) were popular with later orators and historains; the earliest publication of his works was in Mainz in 1471; the editor, Antoine Thysius (1603 - 1665) was the son of the Dutch theologian of the same name (1556 - 1640) and professor of poetry at the University of Harderwijk. Cornelius Nepos' lives of roman generals was a popular work, and this edition by Robertus Keuchenius (1636 - 1673) is one of many works by him. Dirk Van Miert, in Humanism in an Age of Science: The Amsterdam Athenaeum in the Golden Age (2009) amusingly notes "One has the impression that the ambitions of Robertus Keuchenius.were successful only because he knew how to network. in 1660 he dedicated a hymn to Professor Klenckius to congratulate him on his knighthood. He also addressed a congratulatory poem (1660) to recently re-crowned King Charles II of England." This is the first appearance of his edition of Cornelius; it was republished in 1667.

        FODINÆ REGALES. OR THE HISTORY, LAVVS AND PLACES OF THE CHIEF MINES AND MINERAL WORKS IN ENGLAND, WALES AND . . . IRELAND

      London: Printed by H. L. and R. B. for Thomas Basset, 1670. FIRST EDITION . Hardcover. Given by the Author to the "Popish Plot" Judge. 289 x 187 mm (11 3/8 x 7 3/8"). 8 p.l., 108 pp., [4] leaves. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary ruled but unlettered sprinkled calf, corners restored, flat spine rebacked retaining most of original backstrip, pastedowns now raised up. With two half-page engraved coats of arms, frontispiece portrait of the author engraved by William Sherwin, and two full-page engravings of mine works. Front free endpaper with signature of Tho. Walcot of Bitterley, title page with authorial presentation inscription, "Tho. Walcot ex dono Authoris"; front free endpaper with book label of J. A. Freilich (see below for both Walcot and Freilich); front flyleaf with large flourished initials of "J. B." and with signature (beginning with those initials) scratched out. Duveen, p. 468; Hoover 634; Kress 1270; Wing P-1809. Boards a little splayed, front cover with large stain to half the leather, rear board with a dozen tiny wormholes, other minor defects in the covers, but the binding sound, lustrous, and not at all displeasing. Full-page illustrations slightly trimmed at tail edge--despite the fact that margins are remarkably ample everywhere else--isolated rust spots or minor smudges and stains (frontispiece a bit more significantly stained, though only in the margins), other trivial imperfections, but AN UNUSUALLY FRESH, BRIGHT, AND CLEAN COPY INTERNALLY. This work, whose title translates as "Royal Mines," begins by answering the question "What is a mine?" and proceeds from there to discuss the minerals extracted, the costs of the operations, and the laws governing mines and minerals, arranged by the monarch who signed them. It concludes with a glossary defining terms relating to mines and minerals. This is the first work on mineralogy by the natural philosopher and politician Sir John Pettus (1613-90), who went on to publish the better-known (and more commonly seen) "Fleta Minor" in 1683. According to the DNB, "Pettus's interest in metallurgy and mining led to hi[s] becoming a member of the Society of Mines Royal and Battery Works in 1651 and he acted as deputy governor of the royal mines from then until his death, apart from one brief interval. He was elected a fellow of the Royal Society in 1663." The inscriptions at the beginning of the book indicate that our copy was originally in the library of attorney and judge Sir Thomas Walcot (1629-85), whose family home was Bitterley Court. Walcot presided over the trial of the perjurer Titus Oates, who fabricated a story, commonly called the "Popish Plot," indicating that Catholics were plotting to kill King Charles II to put his Catholic brother James on the throne. Joseph A. Freilich amassed probably the finest mineralogy library formed in the 20th century, and copies from that collection are well known for their superior condition (the books were sold at Sotheby's in New York in 2001).

        The Life and Philosophy, of Epictetus. With the Embleme of Humane Life, By Cebes. Rendred [sic] into English, by John Davies of Kidwelly

      London, Printed by T. R. for John Martyn..., 1670. FIRST EDITION of this translation. Small 8vo, 142 x 82 mms., pp. [xiv], 170 [171 - 176 index], large folding engraved plate in Bruegelesque style at page 129, early 18th century calf, rebacked, black morocco label; some light browning of text, a few marginal stains, some foremargins closely cropped with occasional loss of a letter, corners worn, but generally a good to very good copy, with the book labels of Edward Cobb on the front paste-down end-paper and that of Fred H. Gibbens on the recto of the front free marbled end-paper. This is in fact the third translation of Epictetus into English, though this text is translated from the French edition of Epictetus by Gilles Boilieu. John Davies of Kidwelly (1625 - 1693) spent the period between about 1650 and 1660, where he acquired a good knowledge of French and French editions of classical texts. In the same year, he also published a translation of La Rochfoucauld's maxims. Wing E 3152.

        Travels Into Spain, or A Journey Into Spain

      London. 1670. Printed for Henry Herringman. First edition in English of this well known book, a fictional account of the author's travels in Spain, republished countless times. Many currently in print copies are for sale by Internet booksellers. This first edition from 1670 is exceptionally rare. The book is disbound, the boards present but unattached and the spine is worn. Title page is browned at margins and has some chipping at edges, also an owner's inscription in a fine hand in brown ink, in French. The book block is solid and internally the book is very nice without staining or foxing, except for a tear in the bottom corner of one leaf with a slight loss of text. An old brown ink stain is on the paper edges as seen in pic but the stain does not extend beyond the edges into the margins of the paper.

        The Shepherd of Banbury's Rules to Judge of the Changes of the Weather, Grounded on Forty Years Experience: To which is Added a Rational Account of the Causes of such Alterations, the Nature of the Wind, Rain, Snow?

      8vo, later cloth backed marbled boards, [2], viii, 64 pp. Binding worn, splitting at joins with some tears on the spine, normal aging, but internally very good. This work was first published in 1670 as "The Shepherd's Legacy." Although it is unsure who the shepherd of Branbury was, it is possible that it was John Claridge. The OCLC repeating from the introduction of G.H.T. Kimble indicates that in the 1946 edition, the author refers to himself as John in the original edition. It is believed that in the present edition, additions have been made anonymously by John Campbell (ESTC T12185). Claridge talks about the benefits of understanding the weather, and describes some of the tools that are used for that purpose in his introduction, including the value of observation. However, the main purpose of his work is to share the rules that help predict the weather, such as, small and round clouds will yield fair weather for two or three days, or the chance of rain when the Moon is new.

        La perspective curieuse ou magie artificiele des effets merveilleux. De l'optique, par la vision directe. La catoptrique, par la reflexion des miroirs plats, cylindriques & coniques. La dioptrique, par la refraction des crystaux... Oeuvre tres-utile aux peintres, architectes, graveurs, sculpteurs...Paris: Pierre Billaine, 1638.

      First edition, with a fine provenance, of Niceron's important treatise on perspective and anamorphic projection, which gains added significance in the history of science for containing "perhaps the first published reference to Descartes' derivation of the law of refraction" (DSB). "The classic phase of anamorphosis, during which it came to relate vitally to a series of scientific and theological concerns, occurred in France and Rome in the 1630s and 1640s. The theorist at the centre of the Paris-Rome developments was Jean-François Niceron" (Kemp).<br/><br/> Provenance: Gilles Allou (1670-1751), French painter (signature on front fly-leaf). Allou was elected to the <i>Acadcmie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture</i> in 1711. One of his works is <i>L'Optique, or Portrait of Madame Allou drawing an Anamorphic</i>. <br/><br/> Niceron was "sympathetic to the natural magic still current at his time... [and] tended to view optics as the art of illusion rather than the science of light" (DSB). This attitude is reflected in the title of the work, the 'marvellous effects' being anamorphoses. Niceron tells us in the preface (p. 4) that his original intention had been to devote the entire work to anamorphoses, but he also wished to connect the geometric understanding of anamorphoses to the theory of perspective. Having been disappointed with the existing works on perspective, and especially with their failure to show how to construct perspective images of the Platonic bodies - objects that since Antiquity have been connected to the wonders of science and creation - he decide to begin his work with a new treatment of perspective. <br/><br/> "Although aware of the latest theoretical developments, Niceron concentrated primarily on the practical applications of perspective, catoptrics, and dioptrics, and on the illusory effects then traditionally associated with natural magic... The first [book] presents briefly the fundamental geometrical theorems that are necessary for what follows; it then develops a general method of perspective collineation, borrowing heavily from Alberti and Dürer. Book II, which is addressed to the problem of establishing perspective for paintings executed on curved or irregular surfaces (for example, vaults or niches), presents a general technique of anamorphosis; that is, the determination of the surface distortions necessary to bring a picture into perspective when viewed from a given point. Niceron showed, for example, how to construct on the interior surface of a cone a distorted image which, when viewed end on through the base, appears in proper proportion. Book III discusses the anamorphosis of figures that are viewed by reflection from plane, cylindrical, and conical mirrors. He explained how to draw on a plane surface a distorted figure which, when viewed by means of a cylindrical mirror standing perpendicular to the plane, appears in normal projection. Book IV deals with the distortions created by refraction. Here Niceron abandoned any effort at general treatment and concentrated instead on constructing an optical device consisting of a polyhedral lens that gathers elements of one figure and unites them into another, totally different figure. The discussion contains perhaps the first published reference to Descartes' derivation of the law of refraction (1638)" (DSB). <br/><br/> Niceron (1613-46) studied under Mersenne at Paris and then entered the Order of Minims; he was appointed professor of mathematics at their convent in Rome. He was also an artist of some note and executed a large anamorphic wall painting (now lost) in the convent of Sta. Trinita de Monti. He and his Minim colleague Maignan were interested in the uses of anamorphosis in religious art. He was a member of Mersenne's circle, and was acquainted with Fermat, Descartes and Roberval in France, and Cavalieri, Kircher and others in Rome. "He collaborated with a group of scientists in Rome (including Magiotti, Baliani, Kircher, Ricci and Maignan) in conducting experiments suggested by the work of Galileo" (Kemp). The <i>Approbation</i> for this work was granted on 13 April 1638 by Mersenne. <br/><br/> DSB X: 103-4; Vagnetii E111b27. For a detailed discussion of the relationship between Niceron's anamorphic work, his religious beliefs, and the philosophy of Mersenne and Descartes, see Martin Kemp, <i>The Science of Art</i>, pp. 210-211..
