Lucanus, Marcus Annaeus [Lucan].
Jean Ribou, 1670. Lucan's Pharsalia in the French verse translation done by Georges de Brébeuf, here in an uncommon and relatively early edition. Brébeuf's version was originally published in 1654, with several editions (including one Elzevir) following over the next few years, and one additional Paris printing by Loyson appearing in the same year as this example, which is acknowledged in the statement of privilege. The => 10 full-page engravings present in this nicely printed volume include a frontispiece displaying a bust of Lucan (a native of Cordoba, Spain) surrounded by Roman motifs, an additional engraved title-page bearing a martial scene, and -- among other war images done by various hands -- a striking rendition of Cato and the snakes.

(Popkin, Encyc. of Philosophy) It "was highly influential in disseminating sceptical views and arguments into philosophical and theological discussions and played an important role in the development of modern thought, libertinism, and fideism." (Idem) The sceptic philosopher and theologian Charron was the disciple and intellectual heir of Montaigne, who adopted him as his son. Wing C3719. cfRand I p. 144.. Hardcover.

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.

Ferrer de Valdecebro, A.
Madrid, M. Alegre, 1670. 4to (20.5 x 13.7 cm). [xl], 205 numbered leaves, 30 pp. of "tabla general" (general index), one engraved portrait of San Vicente Ferrer and 18 engravings in the text, all of the birds discussed. Limp vellum with beautifully contemporary calligraphed title on the spine. Rare first illustrated edition. An interesting mixture of fact and fancy that throws much light on popular ideas regarding the ornithology of Spain in the 17th century, in which (with some information of value) one finds the usual pious adjuncts to be expected from this author. Although Wood only quotes 17 plates, we think it should have 18, as our copy has. It deals with the Aguila (eagle), Buytre (buzzard), Cigueña (stork), Garza or Garça (heron), Cisne (swan), Fenix, Pelicano (but the illustration suggests that the writer did not know this bird), Halcon (falcon), Gavilan (harrier), Buho (owl), Grulla (crane), Papagayo (parrot), Ansaron (goose), Avestruz (ostrich), Pavo Real (peacock), Cuervo (crow), Paloma (pigeon), and the Gallo (chicken). The leaf numbering is not entirely consistent. Some marginal foxing and one right corner of the text (p. 143) with some slight loss of paper, but without touching the text itself. Later flyleaves and a library stamp on the title page. Palau mentions a first, unillustrated edition from 1668. However, we find no references to that edition elsewhere. In any case, this is the first illustrated edition, including an engraved portrait of the author. The Licencia de la Orden is dated 30 de Setiembre 1669, the Aprobation Octubre 23 de 1669.

Carlander II, 174, 561ff, III, 12 resp. 564ff. Då Sheringham i denna bok om det engelska folkets härkomst stöder den svenska linjen, att goternas/ geternas/ göternas härkomst är att finna i Skandinavien och att Noaks söner är förfäder till göterna, vinner den Warmholtz fulla gillande. I övrigt behandlar Sheringham Britanniens läge, saxarnas, anglernas och "geternas" ankomst dit, bruk och seder. Sheringham förfäktade åsikten att saxarna och cimbrerna härstammade från Troja. Robert Sheringham (1602-78) var språkvetare och historiker i Cambridge men fick gå i landsflykt till Holland för rojalism 1644, där han undervisade i arabiska och hebreiska. Först efter restaurationen 1660 kunde han återvända till England. Fin kedja av provenienser.

Tusculanae Disputationes is a series of books originally written by Cicero, around 45 BC, attempting to popularise Stoic philosophy in Ancient Rome. In the sixty-second year of Cicero's age, his daughter, Tullia, died in childbed; and her loss afflicted Cicero to such a degree that he abandoned all public business, and, leaving the city, retired to Asterra, which was a country house that he had near Antium; where, after a while, he devoted himself to philosophical studies, and, besides other works, he published his Tretise de Finibus, and also this treatise called the Tusculan Disputations, of which Middleton gives this concise description: "The first book ["On the contempt of death"] teaches us how to contemn the terrors of death, and to look upon it as a blessing rather than an evil; "The second, ["On beari … [Click Below for Full Description]

An attractive copy in full gilt-paneled black morocco, gilt back & inside dentelles, all edges gilt (front joint repaired, occasional light foxing). Eighth Edition of the English Translation by Samson Lennard (first: c1608) of CharronÂ’s most famous treatise, in which he presents a complete popular theory of moral philosophy. De La Sagesse, first published in 1601, was "one of the first important philosophical works to be written in a modern language and to present a moral theory apart from religious considerations." (Popkin, Encyc. of Philosophy) It "was highly influential in disseminating sceptical views and arguments into philosophical and theological discussions and played an important role in the development of modern thought, libertinism, and fideism." (Idem) The sceptic philosopher and theologian Charron was the disciple and intellectual heir of Montaigne, who adopted him as his son. Wing C3719. cfRand I p. 144. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
