        Oeuvres meslees (...).

      Rouen, Laurens Machuel, 1674.. 3 tomes relies en un volume in-12, plein veau mouchete de l'epoque, dos a 4 nerfs orne, tranches mouchetees, (2), 91 p.; 175 p. (les 2 prem. t. en pag. continue) et (2), 151 p. Edition originale, parue du vivant de l'auteure, de ce recueil d'oeuvres collectives en trois parties. Le premier tome contient un roman epistolaire, 'Le Portefeuille', satire de la societe parisienne precedee, en guise de preface, d'une lettre signee "Desjardins de Villedieu". Le deuxieme volume renferme une correspondance galante, mi-serieuse, mi-badine entre Mme de Villedieu, nommement designee et l'une de ses relations masculines: elle brode sur les desillusions de l'amour. Le troisieme contient des pieces diverses, maximes, eglogues, fragments de journaux, pastiches et dialogues en vers et en prose. Pour M. Cuenin, Madame de Villedieu aurait choisi de ne pas prendre de privilege et se serait adressee directement a un editeur normand, son compatriote, afin de parer a une eventuelle interdiction (cf. Micheline Cuenin, 'Roman et societe sous louis XIV : Madame de Villedieu', These, Paris IV, Champion, 1976, II, p.42-43 et p.56 pour la bibliographie).

        Lectiones opticae & geometricae: in quibus phaenomenon opticorum genuinae rationes investigantur, ac exponuntur: et generalia curvarum linearum symptomata declarantur. 2 parts in 1 volume.

      William Godbid for Robert Scott, London 1674 - 4to (202x152 mm). [12], 127 [1], [2], 147, [3] pp., 27 folding engraved plates. With the ¿Benevolo Lectori¿ preliminary leaf bound before the ¿Lectiones Geometricae.' Bound in a contemporary English speckled calf with a spine divided by raised bands into 6 richly gilt compartments. The book-block is strong and the hinges hold very firmly. The leather upon the front hinge is lightly cracked, but the cords hold firmly. The boards themselves, the edges and the corners show only slightest wear. Internally, the leaves are toned, but generally clean, with ample margins and clear print throughout. There is light occasional spotting and little marginal staining, which remains quite unobtrusive. The title page show a very small burn hole not affecting text, the second F2 got a small burn-hole in the outer margin, not affecting text as well. The 27 folding engraved plates are excellent impressions, some browned a bit stronger. This is an unusually attractive example of a rare work. ---- Wing B 945; Babson 249; Wallis 358.4; Sotheran 5816 (2); DSB I, 475. Very rare early issue of the first edition without the 'Addenda Lectionibus Geometricis' (pp. 149-151) and plate 13 of the second part found in later issues. In this issue, plate 12 is in uncorrected state with missing lines in figure 220 finished by hand. This plate was re-ingraved for the later issues. "Many problems connected with the reflexion and refraction of light are treated with ingenuity. The geometrical focus of a point seen by reflexion or refraction is defined; and it is explained that the image of an object is the locus of the geometrical foci of every point on it. Barrow also worked out a few of the easier properties of thin lenses; and considerably simplified the Cartesian explanation of the rainbow. The geometrical lectures contain some new ways of determining the areas and tangents of curves. The most celebrated of these is the method given for the determination of tangents to curves" (Sotheran). Isaac Barrow (October 1630 ¿ 4 May 1677) was an English Christian theologian, and mathematician who is generally given credit for his early role in the development of infinitesimal calculus; in particular, for the discovery of the fundamental theorem of calculus. His work centered on the properties of the tangent; Barrow was the first to calculate the tangents of the kappa curve. Isaac Newton was a student of Barrow's, and Newton went on to develop calculus in a modern form. In 1662 he was made professor of geometry at Gresham College, and in 1663 was selected as the first occupier of the Lucasian chair at Cambridge. During his tenure of this chair he published two mathematical works of great learning and elegance, the first on geometry and the second on optics. In 1669 he resigned his professorship in favour of Isaac Newton. In 1669 he issued his ¿Lectiones XVIII,¿ which would come to be known as the ¿Lectiones Opticae.¿ The ¿Lectiones Geometricae¿ were first published in 1670, and the two volumes together, revised, corrected, edited and slightly expanded by Collins and Newton, were first published in 1674 (the edition offered here). It is said in the preface that Newton revised and corrected the ¿Lectiones Opticae.' In this 1674 first complete edition, the title and preliminary matter for the ¿Lectiones Geometricae¿ were supposed to be cancelled. Indeed, ESTC states that ¿no copy is recorded with the original second title page retained.¿ In addition to the new title-page, this copy actually contains the uncancelled preliminary material. Barrows work was edited by John Collins and Isaac Newton, and corrected and revised by Issac Newton, thus constituting one of Newton's earliest publications. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Woodcut printer's device on title. 176 pp.; 86 pp., 1 blank leaf; 60 pp.; 200 pp. 2 blank leaves; 120 pp.; 24 pp.; 103 pp. Seven parts bound in one vol. 12mo, cont. fine smooth vellum over boards. Amsterdam: D. Elzevier, 1674. A fine copy of by far the most important bookseller's catalogue of the 17th century, listing on 736 pages upwards of 20,000 titles. "It is divided into seven parts: theology, law, medicine, books on 'miscellaneous' subjects, books in French, in Italian, Spanish and English, and in German. No prices were given but these were presumably quoted on request. Included are, of course, the books published by the Elzeviers still in print, and a vast number of other books printed in Holland, and the catalogue is therefore still of bibliographical value. It also served contemporary scholars as a work of reference and may be considered a select universal bibliography."-Grolier Club, Bibliography, 68. Fine copy. ❧ Pollard & Ehrman no. 69. .

        Nouvelle Experiences du Vuide. Avec la Description des Machines qui servent a Les faire

      Two engraved plates (one slightly cropped at foot with no loss of image). 2 p.l., 28 pp. 4to, red morocco-backed red cloth boards by Sangorski & Sutcliffe (two small holes to final leaf touching three letters), spine lettered in gilt. Paris: J. Cusson, fils, 1674. First edition of the author's first work; this is an extremely rare book and one of the most important documents on the early history of the air pump. I have been looking for a copy of this book for many years. The Nouvelles Experiences du Vuide is dedicated to Huygens, whom Papin had assisted since 1670 in the construction of air pumps. A skilled mechanic, Papin constructed the air pumps and performed a number of experiments under Huygens' direction. Papin's book is the primary source (besides letters published half a century later in Huygens' Oeuvres) for information on Huygens' improvements on Boyle's first air pump. This book also describes the experiments Papin made with the air pump, in which he showed for the first time that liquids boil in a vacuum at very weak temperatures. He also describes some attempts at preserving food in a vacuum that testify to Papin's utilitarian bent of mind. For the remainder of his life, Papin's efforts were concerned mainly with the relationships of the pressure and temperature of air and water and the application of these relationships to useful purposes. "Among further improvements in the air-pump during the latter part of the seventeenth century were the two way tap, introduced by Papin; and the double cylindered pump, probably introduced by Papin and perfected by Hauksbee, through whom the air-pump assumed what long remained its standard form."-Wolf, A History of Science, Technology, and Philosophy, Vol. I, p. 107. The latter improvement was incorporated in the machine which Papin took with him to England in 1676. Fine copy with a note on the rear paste-down endpaper in the hand of the distinguished bookseller Ernst Weil "Collated & Perfect, EW." In his Cat. 27, item 162, Dr. Weil stated this book is to be "always regarded as one of the Classics in Science; it is without doubt one of the rarest of all of them." ❧ D.S.B., X, pp. 292-93. .

With woodcut vignette on title-page and 71 full-page etched plates (ca. 17.5-19.5×14.5-16.5 cm) by Romeyn de Hooghe. 19th-century richly gold-tooled red morocco (GRUEL).

      Anglo, The Martial Arts of Renaissance Europe, p. 190; Landwehr, De Hooghe Bookillustrator 39; Verkruijsse 1674.15. First edition of this well-known book on wrestling, containing also a method for an unarmed man attacked by a man armed with a knife to defend himself. The book is even more important by its illustrations by the famous Dutch artist Romeyn de Hooghe as by the text of Nicolaes Petter.Prof. Sydney Anglo characterizes the book as "historically speaking the most important treatise on unarmed combat ever printed . . . the finest of all wrestling books and deservedly the most famous". The combination of Petter's lucid descriptions on p. 1-16, devoid of all jargon and De Hooghe's masterful depiction of pain and violence in the engravings, elevates the book to its position of solitary eminence. Splendid copy of this famous illustrated book.

        England's Independency Upon the Papal Power Historically and

      , 1674. 1674. Asserting the Act of Supremacy [Davies, Sir John (1569-1626)]. Pettus, Sir John [1613-1690], Preface. England's Independency Upon the Papal Power Historically and Judicially Stated, By Sr. John Davis, Attorney Generall in Ireland, And by Sr. Edward Coke, Lord Chief Justice in England, In Two Reports, Selected from Their Greater Volumes; For the Convincing of our English Romanists, And Confirming of Those Who are Yet Unperverted to the Court or Church of Rome. With a Preface Written by Sir John Pettus, Knight. London: Printed by E. Flesher, J. Streater, and H. Twyford, 1674. [xvi], 88 [i.e. 84] pp. (Pp. 82-84 mis-numbered 84, 85, 88, respectively.) Quarto (7-1/2" x 5-1/2"). Stab-stitched pamphlet bound into later morocco, gilt title to spine, endpapers renewed. Light rubbing to extremities, front joint starting at foot. Attractive large woodcut head-pieces and decorated initials. Light toning to text, somewhat heavier in places, light soiling and some edgewear to title page, internally clean. * Only edition. Davies is an important figure in English and Irish constitutional history. Also a notable poet, he was attorney general for Ireland. During that time he framed several legal principles that were used to support the growth of the British Empire. England's Independency reflects his fear of the pro-Catholic King Charles II. It warns the king to restrict his support through a clever reading of the Act of Supremacy. Issued by King Henry VIII in 1534, it declared the king to be the "supreme head on earth of the Church in England" in place of the pope. Therefore, he argues, any sympathy towards Catholicism is treasonous because it cedes power to the pope, who, like the king, claims political power over his followers.

        ANIMADVERSIONS UPON A BOOK, INTITULED FANATICISM FANATICALLY IMPUTED TO THE CATHOLICK CHURCH, BY DR. STILLINGFLEET, AND THE IMPUTATION REFUTED AND RETORTED BY S. C. The Second Edition. By a Person of Honour.

      Printed for R. Royston, Bookseller to His most Sacred Majesty., London 1674 - 8vo. 4.5 x 7 inches. [6] + 262 pp. +[1] pp. advertisements + [1]. title page is A2 (see ESTC). Bound in original calf, spine decorated gilt with later paper label. Joints starting to weaken, inside a very crisp copy. Inscription of John Anson 1733 on first free endpaper and title page and early notes identifying author with initials on title, and occasionally in margins. The anonymous author, a Person of Honour, is Edward Hyde, the first Earl of Clarendon (1609-74). Hyde, a lifelong royalist, is best known for his History of the Rebellion (Civil War). He wrote the Animadversions after he fell out of favour with the government of Charles II, in which he served as Lord Chancellor, 1658-1667, after England's failure in the second Anglo-Dutch war of 1664-67. The book is a reply to the attack by his former friend, Serenus Cressy (1605-74) on Edward Stillingfleet's description of the Catholic church as fanatical. Hugh Cressy (1605-74), an ordained office holder of the Church of England had long been an acquaintance of Hyde, but in 1646 was received into the Church of Rome, taking the religious name of Serenus after becoming a Benedictine monk, with a responsibility for the southern province of England. His 1672 book, Fanaticism Fanatically Imputed defended Catholic tradition against the attacks of Stillingfleet (1635-99), who was a noted theological writer, composing several anti-Catholic polemics before he became Bishop of Worcester in 1689. In his attack on the 'uncharitable passion' of Cressy, 'who hath deserted the Religion, and the Church in which he hath been educated,' Hyde includes an interesting discussion on Archbishop Cranmer, the Gunpowder Treason and the French Huguenots, then still tolerated by Louis XIV.

This is the second of his two books of English lexicography, after A Collection of English Proverbs (1670).
