        RICAUT (Paul)

      1671 1244 - Amsterdam, Abraham Wolfgank, 1671, in-12, 498-[6] pages dont le frontispice, 17 (sur 18) planches dépliantes et une figure dans le texte, l'ensemble gravé sur cuivre, velin rigide à petits recouvrements de l'époque, titre manuscrit à l'encre en tête du dos, Ouvrage qui "est sans contredit le meilleur que l'on eût alors sur la Turquie, et il se lit encore avec intérêt" (Willems). Il se compose de trois livres : I. Des maximes politiques des Turcs - II. De la religion des Turcs - III. Où il est traité de la milice des Turcs. La traduction de Briot avait paru à l'origine à Paris en 1670 ; Abraham Wolfgang, l'un des principaux rivaux des Elzevier à Amsterdam, a en donné 3 éditions, entre 1670 et 1672. Paul Ricaut (ou Rycaut, 1628-1700) voyagea durant quelques années en Europe, en Asie et en Afrique. Attaché comme secrétaire au comte de Winchelsea, il suivit en 1661, l'ambassade extraordinaire de Charles II auprès du sultan Mehmed IV à Constantinople. Ce séjour lui permit de découvrir de façon détaillée les mœurs et la religion des Turcs. Il rédigea en 1663 les articles du traité de paix conclu entre l'Angleterre et le gouvernement ottoman, et obtint le privilège pour les navires anglais d'être exemptés du droit de visite. La première édition anglaise de sa relation date de 1667-1668, mais la plupart des exemplaires furent détruits pendant le grand incendie de Londres. Celle-ci est ornée, en copies inversées, des figures réalisées par Sébastien Le Clerc pour l'édition parisienne de 1670. Il manque la planche dépliante de la p. 334 (les derviches). Ex-libris manuscrit ancien sur une garde blanche. Chadenat, 428. Willems, 1872. Brunet IV, 1275. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Young Mans Warning-piece. Or, A Sermon preached at the burial of Williams Rogers. Apothecary. WIth an History of his sinful Life, and Woful Death. Together with a Post-script of the use of Examples. Dedicated to the young Men of the Parish, especially to his Companions

      London: Printed by J.R. for John Williams, 1671. [20], 76, 79-102pp. Recent antique-style blind-ruled calf, contrasting morocco title-label, gilt, to upper board. New endpapers. Marginal chipping, marking and signs of adhesion to preliminaries. With manuscript biographical notes on William Rogers to title, and the inscription of Edward Perronet to verso: 'The gift of Mr Thos. Smith esq. Aldermn. and Mayor of Cant. to E. Perronet of the same place on Tu. Nov. 19th 1771'. Very occasional notes to text. A rare survival of the popular seventeenth-century funeral sermon, which recounts the sinful life and bad end of the local apothecary William Rogers. After a holy upbringing, the Kentish medical man's life is described as having descended into keeping poor company, drinking, neglecting his religious habits and refusing to recant his sinful ways. He is struck down on the very morning he intended to return to his local Church, and proceeds to reveal his deathbed fears of damnation (echoing the notorious Nicodemite Francis Spira) to Robert Abbot, his local Vicar. Originally given by Abbot at Cranbrook, Kent in January 1636, this sermon on the text of Proverbs iv. 19., captured the popular print imagination in a similar manner to Nathaniel Bacon's contemporary account of Spira's anguish. It was first published soon after as The young-mans warning-peece (London, 1636) and featured in contemporary ballads. Extant copies prove that the work was reprinted in 1637, 1639, 1652 and 1657 before this apparently final edition appeared. All are rare; ESTC locates only a single copy of present edition (Oxford), and only 13 copies of any edition. This copy is from the library of Independent Minister, hymn writer and friend of John Wesley, Edward Peronnet (1721-1792), with his inscription. Wing A70aA.. 12mo.

        ARREST DU CONSEIL D'ESTAT, DU VINGT-CINQUIEME NOVEMBRE 1671. PAR LEQUEL IL EST ORDONNE QUE LES MARCHANDISES QUI SERONT CHARGEES EN FRANCE, POUR ESTRE PORTEES DANS LES ISLES DE L'AMERIQUE, SERONT EXEMPTES DE TOUTS DROITS DE SORTIES...[caption title]

      [Paris, 1671. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Some light foxing. Contemporary inscription. Very good. In an attempt to encourage the commerce of the early French colonies in the West Indies, this act declares that no export duty is to be charged on goods shipped to America, as long as the merchants bring back within six months certificates showing these have been landed in America. The certificates are to be signed by the "Sieur Pelissier, l'un des Fermiers de Sa Majeste, ou du Sieur du Ruau Palu, Agent de la Compagnie de Indes Occidentales." This is a variant of Wroth 132, of which only one copy is known. OCLC locates just one copy, at the University of Oxford. Rare. From the library of Cardinal Étienne Charles de Loménie de Brienne (1727-94), Minister of Louis XVI, Archbishop of Toulouse and of Sens. A friend of Voltaire and a member of the Académie Française, Brienne wielded significant power as head of the Finance Ministry, which earned him many enemies. He died in prison during the French Revolution, despite having renounced Catholicism in 1793 (presumably as an attempt to save his life).

        AMERICA: BEING THE LATEST, AND MOST ACCURATE DESCRIPTION OF THE NEW WORLD...COLLECTED FROM MOST AUTHENTICK AUTHORS, AUGMENTED WITH LATER OBSERVATIONS AND ADORN'D WITH MAPS AND SCULPTURES, BY JOHN OGILBY

      London, 1671. Folio. Contemporary calf, covers tooled in blind with a central panel enclosing a lozenge with foliate corner pieces, expertly rebacked preserving original red morocco lettering piece and "FFF" ownership stamp at foot. Very good. Provenance: Francis Ferrand Foljambe (1749-1814, binding). First issue of Ogilby's first edition of this important work. Complete with the "Arx Carolina" view and the "Virginia pars Australis & Florida" map, and the engraving on page 200. The work is an English translation of Arnold Montanus' DE NIEUWE EN ONBEKENDE WEERELD, but with a number of additions concerning New England, New France, Maryland, and Virginia. The work is divided into three books or sections and an appendix: the first gives an overall survey of the most important voyages and expeditions to the Americas; the second book offers a description of Mexico, the Caribbean Islands, Bermuda, and North America; the third deals with South America, and the appendix includes a miscellany of information including notes on the "Unknown South-Land," the "Arctick Region," and the search for a northwest passage.

        DE NIEUWE EN ONBEKENDE WEERELD: OF BESCHRYVING VAN AMERICA EN 'TZUID-LAND

      Amsterdam, 1671. Engraved title. Thick folio. Original vellum, blindstamped cover, raised bands, manuscript title on spine. Internally clean and near fine. Minor repairs to hemispheric map. An excellent copy of this foundation work of Americana. The map is attributed to Jacob Meurs. Correctly called "a classic book on America" by Borba de Moraes, Montanus' narrative contains a wealth of interesting maps and illustrations on both North and South America. The work was later translated into English, with various alterations, by John Ogilby, but this Dutch edition is the true first. The North American section of Montanus contains notable versions of the Blaeu map of New England and New Netherland, as well as versions of the John Smith Virginia and Carolina maps. Among the engravings in the text is one of the first engraved views of New York (the very first, the Van der Donck view, appeared twenty years earlier). There is also a detailed map of Bermuda. There are numerous engraved views of cities and scenes in Mexico and the Caribbean. Much of the second half of the volume is devoted to Brazil, where the Dutch were deeply involved for decades in the 17th century, illustrated with numerous maps and views. The large double-sheet views are excellent and much copied in later publications; but, as Church comments: "The finely executed engravings of this work are especially brilliant in this, the original edition." Howes states that the portrait of the Prince of Nassau, present herein, only appears in the first issue. The large map, credited here to "Gerardum a Schaden," as stated in Borba de Moraes, is also sometimes credited to "Jacobum Meursium," the publisher of the book. One of the most interesting iconographic and cartographic sources of early Americana.

      Rome, Roma, Italy, 1671. HISTORIA de REBUS in GALLIA Gestis ab ALEXANDRO FARNESIO Parmae et Placentiae DUCE III SUPREMO BELGII PRAEFECTO. By GUILLELMI (aka Guillelmo) DONDINI - Bononiensis E Societate Jesu. Roma, 1671. FIRST EDITION. Collated page by page with the 1671 copy at the AUSTRIAN NATIONAL LIBRARY. (The 1671 Austrian National Library copy can be found using a Google Book Search for a 1671 Edition of this book.) In addition to the copies in National Libraries and Museums, this 1671 First Edition is noted in numerous early bibliographic books and materials (e.g. Memoires de la Societe de L'Histoire de Paris et De L'Ile de France, published by H. Champion, 1876). This 1671 First Edition was REPUBLISHED in 1673, 1675, 1676, and many subsequent years (e.g. 1750). Though many believe the 1673 edition is the first edition, IT IS NOT, as a collation with the 1671 Austrian edition and numerous bibliographic citations clearly show. Leather covered boards, spine has five compartments and four raised spine bands, tooled with framing and designs to the front and rear boards and with a design in each of the five spine compartments, 6.5x8". Pagination: Blank Front Free-Endpaper, [2] blank prelim page, [1] Frontispiece Engraving, [1] blank verso, [1] Title-Page, [1] blank verso, [3] "Serenissimo Principi Ranutio II", [1] Printer's / Publishers / "Imprimatur" Colophon page (with the date 1671 in two places), 537 Text, [38] Index, [1] blank verso, [2] blank end paper, Blank Rear Free-Endpaper. Plus 5 fold-open Plates. Illustrated with FRONTISPIECE ENGRAVING and FIVE FOLD-OPEN PLATES. All 5 Fold-Open Plates are Present, however they are all disbound and laid-in at their proper place. CONDITION: Covers are split at the front spine fold and tender at the rear spine fold but holding well with the cord binding, covers are bowing a bit, covers are worn through at the corners and places along the edges, have some rubs and scrapes, but are still quite lovely with their tooled leather covers and spine. Internally, there is an early handwritten note pasted on the front pastedown (in Latin-Italian?), there is some foxing, toning and smudging most noticeably on the first and last few pages and very light on most pages, "Bibliotheque (De Lovina?)" is written at the top of a blank prelim page - the page facing the engraved frontispiece page, there is some edge chipping and wear (not affecting text) mainly to the first and last few pages, otherwise the inner pages are still tight bright, clean and unmarked. THE PLATES are all disbound, all have edge chips and wear (some lightly affecting the image), closed tears to the folds and edges, tape repairs to their blank backsides, foxing primarily to the margins and backsides, and signs of handling; in spite of these flaws the plates are still solid, impressive, and quite lovely. All the plates are laid-in at their proper place. This 1671 FIRST EDITION is almost Impossible To Find, especially in a complete state, with its frontispiece and all five plates present. Good

        HISTOIRE GENERALE DES ANTILLES HABITÉES PAR LES FRANÇOIS

      Paris, 1671. Contemporary calf, leather labels, spines gilt extra. Minor rubbing, some light edge wear. Final text leaf in first volume torn but no loss. Overall a fine, particularly fresh set in the original bindings. The best edition, after the original abridged edition of 1654. This extensive work is full of detailed descriptions of life in the French Antilles, including natural history, slavery, plantation activities, and the like. The fine engraved plates depict sugar plantation work, slaves manufacturing indigo, animals, spiders, land and naval battles between the French and British in the Caribbean, etc. The maps are of St. Christopher, Guadeloupe, St. Croix, Marigalande, and Martinique. "This voluminous account of the French settlements in the West Indies contains numerous passages which indicate the importance of tobacco in the political economy of the islands" - Arents. According to Rich, Dutertre was forced to publish the original 1654 edition before the work was complete: "The first edition of Father Du Tertre's HISTORY OF THE ANTILLES, or rather the project of that work, which the Rev. Father was obliged to put to press in haste, because he understood that some other person was about printing it under some other name, thereby depriving him of the credit of it.

        DE NIEUWE EN ONBEKENDE WEERELD: OF BESCHRYVING VAN AMERICA EN 'TZUID-LAND

      Amsterdam, 1671. Small folio. Early 20th-century half mottled calf and marbled boards, spine with raised bands, red morocco label. Very good. Provenance: J.J.A.

The work was later translated into English, with various alterations, by John Ogilby, but this Dutch edition is the true first.

        TRUTH EXALTED; IN A SHORT, BUT SURE, TESTIMONY AGAINST ALL THOSE RELIGIONS, FAITHS, AND WORSHIPS THAT HAVE BEEN FORMED AND FOLLOWED IN THE DARKNESS OF APOSTACY. - AND FOR THAT GLORIOUS LIGHT WHICH IS NOW RISEN, AND SHINES FORTH IN THE LIFE AND DOCTRINE OF THE DESPISED QUAKERS, AS THE ALONE GOOD OLD WAY OF LIFE AND SALVATION. PRESENTED TO PRINCES, PRIESTS, AND PEOPLE, THAT THEY MAY REPENT, BELIEVE, AND OBEY

      London, 1671. Small quarto. Modern red calf. Evenly tanned, a few leaves soiled around edges. Withal, very good. Rare third edition of William Penn's second published work, a spirited espousal of his religious beliefs above and beyond any other faiths. He discusses the condition of humanity since the fall from the Garden of Eden, criticizes Catholics for their rituals and beliefs, and attacks Protestants for their intolerance. "The passion of a new convert is clearly evident in this short pamphlet in which [William Penn] denounced the wickedness and errors of Catholics and Protestants alike and declared that Quakers alone hold the key to 'Life and Salvation.' Not yet caught up in the pamphlet war that Friends waged against their enemies, [Penn] apparently issued this blast against all other Christians out of sheer exuberance during his first months as a Quaker" - Bronner & Fraser. Apparently no copies of this edition are on OCLC, nor is it listed in Smith or Whiting's bibliographies of Friends' books. Bronner & Fraser locate only two copies. A rare early work by the future founder of Pennsylvania, showing the intolerance of a new convert to the Society of Friends.

        SEÑORA. DON PEDRO COLON DE PORTUGAL Y CASTRO...[caption title]

      [Madrid, 1671. Folio. Dbd. Upper outer corners numbered in contemporary manuscript. Minute toning at foredge, primarily on first leaf. Overall very good. In a half morocco and cloth box. The petition of Don Pedro Nuño Colon de Portugal, descendant of the explorer, Christopher Columbus, and sixth Duke of Veragua and Marquis of Jamaica, requesting that Mariana of Austria, Queen Regent of Charles II of Spain, make some compensation for the loss of income the Duke had suffered since the British took Jamaica in 1655. Jamaica had been the exclusive fief of the descendants of Columbus since 1536 when it was given as a reward to the family. This document is dated 1671 by the text at the top of the second leaf, where the Duke refers to Spain's cession of Jamaica to Great Britain "last year in 1670." Despite this date, some scholars assert a date of 1672. Since most of the text is devoted to the life of Columbus, the document is, by default, also one of the few early biographies of the explorer. In his argument the Duke puts special emphasis on the tremendous gain Spain received by virtue of his ancestor's discovery. In citing various sources he estimates that within the first 170 years after its discovery, the New World had produced for Spain some one billion, 190 million pesos. Despite these figures, the present heir to Columbus' titles and estates was reduced to an income of sixteen thousand ducats. The Duke mentions no specific amount of compensation that he would like for Jamaica, but points out that Puerto Rico is of approximately the same worth. The last four pages are a glowing description of Jamaica, its towns, people, products, etc., ending with an itemized accounting of just how much rent the island had produced annually for the Duke before the British occupation (40,950 pesos silver). Two years after this petition was printed, the Duke was made the 26th viceroy of New Spain - a fair reward for the loss of Jamaica. His term, however, was short. He reigned only six days before dying in Mexico City. "This is the final petition sent to the throne of Spain, and contains a long account of the various descendants of Columbus and their claims on Spain, an account of Jamaica, and a list of the various dues received from Jamaica" - Maggs. The previously mentioned biographical content of the present document is important. It is possibly an assimilation of the sixteen-page folio manuscript of the life of Columbus written by Juan de Solorzano Pereira, the famous Spanish jurist and fiscal of the Council of the Indies in 1628, responsible for the great work on colonial American law, the POLITICA INDIANA, published in 1629. In that manuscript Solorzano states that it was composed at the request of the Duke's branch of the Columbus family, forty-two years before the present document was printed. The Solorzano manuscript is described in the LeClerc catalogue of 1878 (item 137), along with other documents relating to the Duke's branch of the family. One of the earliest Columbus biographies, married to an eloquent plea by his impoverished heirs. Extremely rare. Palau locates only one copy of the original, at the Real Academia de la Historia. EUROPEAN AMERICANA locates two more (Huntington and British Library). Not on OCLC. The petition was reprinted by the Mill Press in San Francisco in 1992.

        1671 First Edition GUILLELMO DONDINI - HISTORIA de REBUS in GALLIA GESTIS ab ALEXANDRO FARNESIO - with ALL 5 PLATES

      Rome, Roma, Italy, 1671. 1st Edition . Hardcover. Good. HISTORIA de REBUS in GALLIA Gestis ab ALEXANDRO FARNESIO Parmae et Placentiae DUCE III SUPREMO BELGII PRAEFECTO. By GUILLELMI (aka Guillelmo) DONDINI - Bononiensis E Societate Jesu. Roma, 1671. FIRST EDITION. Collated page by page with the 1671 copy at the AUSTRIAN NATIONAL LIBRARY. (The 1671 Austrian National Library copy can be found using a Google Book Search for a 1671 Edition of this book.) In addition to the copies in National Libraries and Museums, this 1671 First Edition is noted in numerous early bibliographic books and materials (e.g. Memoires de la Societe de L'Histoire de Paris et De L'Ile de France, published by H. Champion, 1876). This 1671 First Edition was REPUBLISHED in 1673, 1675, 1676, and many subsequent years (e.g. 1750). Though many believe the 1673 edition is the first edition, IT IS NOT, as a collation with the 1671 Austrian edition and numerous bibliographic citations clearly show. Leather covered boards, spine has five compartments and four raised spine bands, tooled with framing and designs to the front and rear boards and with a design in each of the five spine compartments, 6.5x8". Pagination: Blank Front Free-Endpaper, [2] blank prelim page, [1] Frontispiece Engraving, [1] blank verso, [1] Title-Page, [1] blank verso, [3] "Serenissimo Principi Ranutio II", [1] Printer's / Publishers / "Imprimatur" Colophon page (with the date 1671 in two places), 537 Text, [38] Index, [1] blank verso, [2] blank end paper, Blank Rear Free-Endpaper. Plus 5 fold-open Plates. Illustrated with FRONTISPIECE ENGRAVING and FIVE FOLD-OPEN PLATES. All 5 Fold-Open Plates are Present, however they are all disbound and laid-in at their proper place. CONDITION: Covers are split at the front spine fold and tender at the rear spine fold but holding well with the cord binding, covers are bowing a bit, covers are worn through at the corners and places along the edges, have some rubs and scrapes, but are still quite lovely with their tooled leather covers and spine. Internally, there is an early handwritten note pasted on the front pastedown (in Latin-Italian?), there is some foxing, toning and smudging most noticeably on the first and last few pages and very light on most pages, "Bibliotheque (De Lovina?)" is written at the top of a blank prelim page - the page facing the engraved frontispiece page, there is some edge chipping and wear (not affecting text) mainly to the first and last few pages, otherwise the inner pages are still tight bright, clean and unmarked. THE PLATES are all disbound, all have edge chips and wear (some lightly affecting the image), closed tears to the folds and edges, tape repairs to their blank backsides, foxing primarily to the margins and backsides, and signs of handling; in spite of these flaws the plates are still solid, impressive, and quite lovely. All the plates are laid-in at their proper place. This 1671 FIRST EDITION is almost Impossible To Find, especially in a complete state, with its frontispiece and all five plates present.

Binding in full black morocco circa 1860. Back to nerves Jansenist cold framing nets. Triple cold framing net on the boards. Rich inner frieze. Gilt edges. Very nice copy, perfectly established in an unsigned master binding. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition bilingue, avec le texte français en regard, et illustré d'un frontispice et de 5 figures hollandaises signées Bloote (particulièrement fines et belles), pour certainement Abraham Blooteling, fameux dessinateur et graveur hollandais. Page de titre à la sphère. Reliure en plein maroquin noir circa 1860. Dos à nerfs janséniste à filets d'encadrement à froid. Triple filet d'encadrement à froid sur les plats. Riche frise intérieure. Tranches dorées. Très bel exemplaire, parfaitement établi dans une reliure de maître non signée. Guarini fut diplomate et écrivain, son oeuvre la plus fameuse est cette pièce de théâtre Il pastor fido, pastorale tragi-comique écrite en parallèle à l'oeuvre de son ami Le Tasse : Aminta. Elle le rendit très célèbre et elle fut jouée sur toutes les scènes de l'Europe, survivant à la pièce du Tasse, plus sentimentale et lyrique. A l'instar de plusieurs de ses poésies qui furent mises en musique de son vivant sous forme de madrigaux, Haëndel fit du Pastor fido un opéra et Rameau une cantate, tant la notorité de cette pièce, publié en 1589 étaient encore grande dans la première moitié du XVIIIe. On peut encore voir au château d'Ancy-Le-Franc une trace de cette célébrité dans le cycle de peinture illustrant le drame qui orne tout un salon. L'action se déroule dans L'Arcadie, menacé de la peste. Un oracle annonce que le mal qui frappe le pays sera réglé par le dévouement d'un berger fidèle. Plusieurs intrigues assez complexes finissent par accomplir les prophétisations de l'oracle. L'auteur a voulu mélanger divers genres, dont celui de la tragédie à celui de la pastorale, il en résulte que l'action est assez diffuse, mais la grande richesse d'imagination, le choeur antique (accompagné alors d'instruments), d'heureux passages bien menés, une affectation mesurée, frappèrent nettement les esprits contemporains et du siècle suivant.

PRESENTED TO PRINCES, PRIESTS, AND PEOPLE, THAT THEY MAY REPENT, BELIEVE, AND OBEY

      London. 1671.. 20pp. Small quarto. Modern red calf. Evenly tanned, a few leaves soiled around edges. Withal, very good. Rare third edition of William Penn's second published work, a spirited espousal of his religious beliefs above and beyond any other faiths. He discusses the condition of humanity since the fall from the Garden of Eden, criticizes Catholics for their rituals and beliefs, and attacks Protestants for their intolerance. "The passion of a new convert is clearly evident in this short pamphlet in which [William Penn] denounced the wickedness and errors of Catholics and Protestants alike and declared that Quakers alone hold the key to 'Life and Salvation.' Not yet caught up in the pamphlet war that Friends waged against their enemies, [Penn] apparently issued this blast against all other Christians out of sheer exuberance during his first months as a Quaker" - Bronner & Fraser. Apparently no copies of this edition are on OCLC, nor is it listed in Smith or Whiting's bibliographies of Friends' books. Bronner & Fraser locate only two copies. A rare early work by the future founder of Pennsylvania, showing the intolerance of a new convert to the Society of Friends. BRONNER & FRASER, PENN BIBLIOGRAPHY 2C.

He was a Benedictine monk of the Congregation of St. Maur. The Abbey of La Trappe, founded by the Cistercian order was annexed to the domain of the Benedictines. It will be reformed according to the seventeenth 'the rule of strict observance'par Rance, much more rigid and severe than that of the Cistercians. It is precisely this reform says Bernard de Montfaucon, reform breathed a spiritual renewal to Christianity, and who saved the Abbey of La Trappe from oblivion and decay in many abbeys which fell at that time. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Reliure aux armes de Jean-Jacques Charron de Menars (Orléanais), Vicomte puis Marquis de Menars, 'Il fut un grand bibliophile et acquis vers 1679 la collection de Thou qu'il vendit au cardinal de Rohan' Olivier Pl. 185. TII. D'azur au chevron d'or accompagné de 3 étoiles d'or, couronne ducale supportée par 2 cygnes. Reliure en pleine basane d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Coiffe de queue frottée. Bernard de Montfaucon, originaire de Roquetaillade, près de Limoux, était un des hommes les plus érudits de son temps et par ce fait l'un des plus célèbres de son époque, notamment pour son oeuvre monumentale : l'antiquité expliquée en figures. Il était bénédictin, de la congrégation de Saint Maur. L'abbaye de la Trappe, fondé par l'ordre des cisterciens fut annexée au domaine des bénédictins. Elle sera réformée au XVIIe selon 'la règle de la stricte observance'par l'abbé de Rancé, beaucoup plus rigide et sévère que celle des Cisterciens. C'est précisément cette réforme que commente Bernard de Montfaucon, réforme qui insuffla un renouveau spirituel à la chrétienté, et qui sauva l'abbaye de la Trappe de l'oubli et de la décadence dans laquelle tombèrent maintes abbayes à cette époque.

      Amsterdam, 1671. 4:o. (16),+ clxxxiv s.+ utvikbar grav. plansch. Enstaka träsnitt i texten. Tryckt på tjockare papper. Sammanbunden med: (SCHEFFERUS, Johannes.) Contantinii Opelii De fabrica triremium Meibomiana. Epistola perbrevis ad amicum. Eleuteropoli (=Freistadt), 1672. 4:o. (2),+ 34 s. Tryckt på tjockare papper. Samtida pergamentband med blindpräglad rygg med handtextad titel och äldre bibliotekslapp, pärmarna med blindpräglad ram. Försättsbladet med inklistrad grav. fartygsbild. Spår av borttaget exlibris. Collijn sp 828 (endast Karlstads stiftsbibliotek och Uppsala). Fant 32. Cicognara 1708 (för Meibom). Fint exemplar av Marcus Meiboms avhandling om antika stridsskepp, triremer, och Johannes Schefferus mycket sällsynta kritik av densamma. M. Meibom (1621-1711), som under en kort period 1652 var underbibliotekarie hos drottning Kristina i Stockholm, var den förste att komma på att namnet på skeppen kom av placerandet av åror på tre olika nivåer. Hur de var placerade däremot är fortfarande omtvistat. Schefferus var efter att ha publicerat "De militia navali veterum" 1654 en samtida auktoritet på området antika fartyg. Meibom angriper dock Schefferus på vissa punkter, och Schefferus svarar här med en skarp kritik av Meiboms skrift. Ett omtryck av Schefferus kritik sker senare i Graevius "Thesaurus antiquitatum Romanorum", 1699

        Cinq dialogues faits à l'imitation des anciens EDITION ORIGINALE

      A Mons|[Amsterdam]: Chez Paul de la Flêche [Blaeu], 1671. Fine. Chez Paul de la Flêche [Blaeu], A Mons [Amsterdam] 1671, In 12 (7,5x13cm), 332pp., relié. - Edition elzévirienne published under the pseudonym Oratius Tubero. Interestingly, this work has curiously not been indexed by Tchemerzine in his bibliography of first editions. Velin full flaps (Dutch binding). Smooth back. Title pen. Good copy. Probably the best known works of this skeptical philosopher (1588-1672), which was not intended for publication, but to his friends; work has indeed a freedom of tone and language rather unusual in this kind of exercise, even if the author stands behind the banner of the ancient philosophers (especially Cicero) that he made a formal loan and said. The dialogues focus on the manners and opinions with a final dialogue on the diversity of religions: From the skeptical philosophy; The skeptic banquet; Of privacy; Rare & eminent qualities of asses this time; the diversity of religions. Instead of the word end, we find these to Spanish: De las cosas mas seguras, La mas es segura dudar (From the most certain things, the more certain is doubt), creed and motto of the author. Bookplate nineteenth engraved with the arms at Besançon. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale elzévirienne parue sous le pseudonyme de Oratius Tubero. On notera avec intérêt que cette oeuvre n'a curieusement pas été répertoriée par Tchemerzine dans sa bibliographie des éditions originales. Reliure en plein vélin à rabats (reliure hollandaise). Dos lisse. Titre à la plume. Bon exemplaire. Sans doute le plus connu des ouvrages de ce philosophe sceptique (1588-1672), lequel n'était pas destiné à la publication, mais à ses amis ; l'ouvrage possède en effet une liberté de ton et de langage assez inhabituelle dans ce genre d'exercice, même si l'auteur se range derrière la bannière des philosophes de l'Antiquité (et surtout Ciceron) auxquels il fait un emprunt formel et déclaré. Les dialogues portent essentiellement sur les moeurs et les opinions avec un ultime dialogue sur la diversités des religions : De la philosophie sceptique ; Le banquet sceptique ; De la vie privée ; Des rares & eminentes qualites des asnes de ce temps ; de la diversité des religions. Au lieu du mot fin, on trouve ces vers espagnols : De las cosas mas seguras, La mas segura es dudar (Des choses les plus certaines, la plus certaine est le doute), credo et maxime de l'auteur. Ex-libris du XIXe gravé aux armes, à à Besançon.

        Relationi universali

      In Venetia: Perli Bertani, 1671. Fine. Perli Bertani, In Venetia 1671, in-4 (16x22,8cm), (8) 747pp. (36), relié. - New edition, after the original was published in 1591 and 1593. Illustrated with 4 folding maps of Gioseppe Rosatio, Europe, Asia, America and Africa, on gray background. The work went through many reprints in the seventeenth. Full vellum flexible time. Back to nerves Jansenist. Title in black pen. Universal geography Botero is a way to assess the real power of all states. Botero writes his Relazioni in the wake of his great political work from reasons of state and can only be understood in its wake. If the work is a classic universal geography, with a description of all parts of the world then known in the first part, the remaining parts describe the world this time of political and religious point of view, favoring instead the Catholic evangelism Worldwide. The book was originally a request of Cardinal Borromeo on the state of Christianity in the world. The Relazioni are transmitting a geopolitical worldview, but under the terms of the Counter-Reformation. Botero trying to reach the geographical space and political space, providing Catholicism against the Reformation and its future expansion. Many modern geographers made of the work of the charter birth of modern geography by using methods employed by Botero, although the book offers a triple worldview (geographical, political and religious) and not unilaterally Geographic. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition, après l'originale parue en 1591 et 1593. Illustrée de 4 cartes dépliantes de Gioseppe Rosatio, l'Europe, l'Asie, l'Amérique et l'Afrique, sur fond grisé. L'oeuvre connut de nombreuses réeditions au XVIIe. Reliure en plein vélin souple d'époque. Dos à nerfs janséniste. Titre à la plume noire. La géographie universelle de Botero est un moyen d'évaluer la puissance réelle de tous les états. Botero écrit ses Relazioni dans la foulée de son grand oeuvre politique De la raison d'état et ne peut être comprise que dans son sillage. Si l'ouvrage est une géographie universelle classique, avec une description de toutes les régions du monde connues alors dans la première partie, les autres parties décrivent le monde cette fois du point de vue politique et religieux, privilégiant la place de l'évangélisme catholique dans le monde. Le livre était à l'origine une demande du cardinal Borroméo sur l'état de la religion chrétienne dans le monde. Les Relazioni sont donc la transmission d'une vision géopolitique du monde, mais placée sous l'angle de la Contre-Réforme. Botero tente de joindre l'espace géographique et l'espace politique, fournissant au catholicisme et à la contre Réforme sa future expansion. De nombreux géographes modernes firent de l'oeuvre la charte de naissance de la géographie moderne par l'utilisation des méthodes employées par Botero, même si le livre offre une triple vision du monde (géographique, politique et religieuse)et non unilatéralement géographique.
