Milroy, Rollin
Vancouver: Heavenly Monkey. Fine+. 2009. First Edition; First Printing; Signed by Artist. Hardcover. The edition is 40 numbered copies: The Press copies (numbers 16 - 40) , this copy, are quarter-bound in leather by Claudia Cohen with a unique paste paper for the boards, incorporating a repeating calligraphic HM pattern. These copies have been signed by artist Andrea Taylor. A Press copy, numbered 38; Printed by the author with a Washington press, on dampened sheets of Heavenly Monkey Text paper made specially for this project. The text is set in Dante and Dante Titling, and printed in two colors. Rather than a manual concerned with how to print damp, the text draws on sources such as Eric Gill, Porter Garnett, William Everson and Harry Duncan to focus on why. The essay that forms the core of the bulk - the discussion of damp printing - focuses on how changes in printing methods and materials over the past century are (and are not) reflected in contemporary letterpress publishing. Differences in printing techniques (primarily the results of dry vs damp) will be demonstrated, augmented by four sample leaves spanning four centuries interspersed through the essay: one sample of early printing ( Praestantium Ac Eruditorum Vivorvm Epistoae Et Theologoicae, Henriuvm Dendrinvm, Amsterdam 1670) ; a leaf from a mid-19th century book that combined steelpoint illustration with (dry) letterpress on a coated "art paper" of the period (Poems by Jean Ingelow, Longmans, Green, Reader, & Dyer, London 1867) ; a leaf from a book printed damp under Bruce Rogers' direction at the Riverside … [Click Below for Full Description]

Reeve, John, & Lodowick Muggleton.
[London: , 1670?]. [London, 1670?]. 4to (21.1 cm, 8.25"). A4 (A4 lacking); 8 pp. (pp. 7–8 lacking, supplied in early manuscript).. John Reeve (1608–58) and his cousin Lodowick Muggleton (1609–98) were the founders of the Muggletonians, a small Christian sect that denied the doctrine of the Trinity, believed that God would no longer interfere in human affairs after the revelation of their founders, and condemned prayer and preaching. In this piece Reeve argues for his view of the passion of Christ, and explains how God suffered in it. Appended is a short essay by Muggleton, explaining his view of the fall and of the mortality of the soul. The text of the lacking pp. 7–8 is supplied on three leaves in manuscript in a pretty and clear 18th-century hand. Opinion seems evenly divided as to whether this piece was published in 1670 or 1719.         Wing (rev. ed.) R677; ESTC T229795 & R223718; Smith, Bibliotheca Anti-Quakeriana, 311.

Dryden, John
London: Printed for H. Herringman, at the sign of the Blew Anchor in the Lower Walk of the New Exchange, 1670. First edition. First issue with original leaf F3 intact. Quarto (215 x 170 mm), collates: title, [8], 66, [1]. Signatures: A4, a2, B-I4, K2. Lacking leaf A1, the blank preceding the title page. Bound in marbled wraps to style. Title page with some pulp fills, mainly along inner margin. Other pages with inner marginal worming, rarely affecting the text. Page 64 with lower corner missing, affecting final four lines with loss of a few words. Most pages with dog-eared corners, staining or some other minor defect, but text legible and complete. & & Dryden's tragedy, in rhymed couplets, of St. Catharine of Alexandria and her martyrdom at the hands of the lusty Roman Emperor Maximinus. Nell Gwyn (aka Ellen Guyn), mistress of Charles II, originated the role of Valeria, the tyrant's daughter. The rather pious and stately tragedy ends with a truly Restoration flourish, when stagehands come onstage to carry off the dead Valeria's corpse at the play's curtain and Gwyn jumps up to deliver "what must be the most amusing epilogue ever written" (Maximillian E. Novak, "The Works of John Dryden," University of California, 1970), chiding the "damn'd dull Poet" for killing her off and mocking his "godly out-of-fashion Play."

London 1670 - This is a very old book. This book was published in 1670. Most likely this is a First Edition but the actual title page is missing, but it has been supplied in manuscript. The book was rebound in the 1830's, because on the cover in Roman numerals it reads "1832". The binding is black leather with gold tooling. The gold tooling on the front and back covers are very elaborate. On the spine it has the title, below that a symbol or shield of some sort and below that is a date of the book in gold "1670". The binding is completely in tact, but has some scuffing and rubbing. For its age it is in great condition. Both boards are together and there are no tears to the pages. Two or three pages in the beginning of the book are detached. The printing of the pages, some are not straight, and some pages, the printing goes almost to the bottom of the page. There are 284 pages. The fore-edge is most likely from the 1830's. The edge is of a tavern scene with two men and a dog.!!!FREE SHIPPING!!! [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Both volumes have been collated and are complete Nicolas Perrot d' Ablancourt (April 5 1606 in the Châlon-on-Marne - November 17 1664 in Paris) was a French translator. A malicious remark on one of his translations spawned the saying "les belles infidèles (the beautiful inaccurate ones)." Some of Nicolas Perrot d'Ablancourt's works are still being repinted today. Great gift item for someone who reads French and loves Roman history. Publius (or Gaius) Cornelius Tacitus (c. 56 – c. 117) is one of the important historians of Roman Antiquity. The surviving portions of his two major works—the Annals and the Histories—treat the reigns of the Roman Emperors Tiberius, Claudius, Nero and those that reigned in the Year of the Four Emperors. These two works span the history of the Roman Empire from the death of Augustus in 14 to (presumably) the death of emperor Domitian in 96. There are significant lacunae in the surviving texts. Other surviving works by Tacitus treat Oratory (in dialogue format, see Dialogus de oratoribus), Germania (in De origine et sit … [Click Below for Full Description]

The domaine was bought in 1670 and building began on the chateau for Jean-Baptiste Colbert, Louis XIV's minister of finance. This engraving shows vibrantly dressed noblemen and women on the grounds leading to the garden and fountain areas. This energetic engraving shows the interaction among the men and women and the expert abilities of the artist and engraver to use liner perspectives when creating this multidimensional scene. During the mid to late 18th century, the trend amongst European artists, printmakers and publishers, was to visually record their own country's architectural treasures, and the natural beauty of their gardens. Motivated by national pride, artists and printmakers began to publish views of their most-admired estates and grounds. In addition to being a visual record of the countryside, they were meant to encourage public recognition of national treasures. These prints were meant to be purchased by the English and foreign tourists whom desired a memento of their travels.

During the mid to late 18th century, the trend amongst European artists, printmakers and publishers, was to visually record their own country's architectural treasures, and the natural beauty of their gardens. Motivated by national pride, artists and printmakers began to publish views of their most-admired estates and grounds.

These prints were meant to be purchased by the English and foreign tourists whom desired a memento of their travels.

At the same time he abjured the Protestant faith, became a Catholic and took a new degree as required by the university. The following year, however, he quit this chair for the professorship of pathology. He was soon afterwards nominated principal of the college of Breugel. He died at Louvain, in December 1671, aged seventy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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.
