Some pleader's manuals, such as Rastell's Book of Entries (1564), were semi-official compilations by single authors. Others, such as the Liber Placitandi were collections drawn from various authors. Sometimes cited as Thompson's Entries, it was first published in 1671. Holdsworth considers it a fine example of the genre. The preface assures the reader that "[m]ost of the pleadings are Modern, having occurr'd in the Court of King's Bench, since his Majesties Happy Restauration; whereof many received Approbation under the hands of some of the best pleaders of the Age: (as by their Originals may be Attested).": To The Reader [iii].

      1674. Amsterdam, A. Frisius, 1674. 12mo (130 x 75mm). pp. 52, (6), with 5 (4 folded) engraved plates. Recent boards. First edition and a very scarce publication on the Albatross and one of the earliest illustrated monographs of a single bird, 'among the greatest rarities in ornithological literature' (E.P. Goldschmidt). In the name 'Diomedea' is a reference to the mythical metamorphosis of the companions of the Greek warrior Diomedes into birds. The Albatross was part of Lachmund's own natural history cabinet at Hildesheim. The work is dedicated to Johan Daniel Major, professor of anatomy at Kiel. The first plate (210 x 175 mm) shows a full depiction of the Albatross, an other plate shows its large and strong beak, while the remaining plates show anatomical details. Not in any of the major ornithological bibliographies; The British Museum Natural History catalogue lists it as 'wanting'.

Hier seine mehrfach aufgelegte Antwortschrift auf die Angriffe Zwelfers, in der er sein Vipernsalz verteidigt und seine Theorie der Alkalien formuliert. - Als einer der namhaftesten Iatrochemiker vertritt Tachenius die von Paracelsus und van Helmont eingeführte Doktrin, wonach die physiologischen und pathologischen Erscheinungen im Menschen wesentlich auf chemischen Prozesse beruhen. Er ist seinen Zeitgenossen in chemischen Erkenntnissen weit voraus, kennt bereits die Zusammensetzung der Salze, Säuren und Basen (Theorie der Alkalien) und wird durch das Vipernsalz zu einem wohlhabenden Mann.

        La Defense du Droit de Marie Therese d'Austriche, Reine de France...

      1674. La Feuillade, Georges d'Aubusson de [1612-1697]. La Defense du Droit de Marie Therese d'Austriche, Reine de France a la Succession des Couronnes d'Espagne. Paris: Chez Sebastien Mabre-Cramoisy, 1674. [xxiv], 164, [1] pp. 12mo. (5-1/2" x 3"). Contemporary sheep treated to resemble tree-calf, gilt spine with raised bands, speckled edges. Some rubbing to extremities with minor wear to spine ends, corners bumped. Toning to text, faint dampstaining and spotting to a few leaves, internally clean. * First edition. The author was the Archbishop of Embrun, later Prince-Archbishop of Metz. Mazarin appointed him ambassador to Venice in 1659. Louis XIV appointed him ambassador to Spain in 1667 to pursue French claims to the Spanish Netherlands in the name of Maria Theresa of Austria (1638-1683), the Spanish Infanta and Queen Consort of Louis XIV. These claims were tenuous and constructed on intricate legal foundations. French jurists argued that the Spanish Netherlands should not go to the still underage heir to the Spanish throne, Charles II of Spain (1661-1700), because he was the issue of the second marriage of Philip IV. Maria Theresa on the other hand was a result of his first marriage and the lands thereby 'devolved' to her and, of course, Louis XIV. France's claims led to the War of devolution (1667-68). Feuillade defends France's claims with an argument grounded in the "fundamental laws of Spain, the examples of past centuries and the solemn judgments of the Royal Council of Castile." A second edition was published in 1699. Both copies are scarce, especially in North America. OCLC locates no copies in North American law libraries.

With catalogues of English birds and fishes: and an account of the preparing and refining such metals and minerals as are gotten in England.

      H. Bruges for Tho.

Early inscription at the top of the title page: "Anglesey, March 30, 1678."While on his botanical journeys throughout England, which brought Ray (1627-1705) everlasting fame, he had the opportunity to study local antiquities and customs, as well as local dialects. This work, together with his Collection of English Proverbs (1670), is an outgrowth of these travels. On one of his treks into Cornwall he made notes on the smelting industry, and recorded his observations (included in a separate section at the back of this volume) on the smelting and refining of silver, tin and iron. Also included is a brief section on husbandry. The sections on the names of British birds and fishes were largely the work of Francis Willughby.

        THE COMMENTARIES OF MESSIRE BLAÎZE DE MONTLUC, MARESCHAL OF FRANCE

      London: Printed by Andrew Clark, for Henry Brome, 1674. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH . Hardcover. 337 x 203 mm (13 1/4 x 8"). 10 p.l. (counting the frontispiece), 376, 381-404 (i.e., 400) pp., [6] leaves (complete). Translated by Charles Cotton. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH. Excellent contemporary mottled calf, covers bordered with blind rules, center panel with scrolling floral roll and fleuron cornerpieces in blind, and with very unusual dark and light obliquely intersecting wavy lines at center; raised bands, spine elaborately gilt in compartments featuring a fine all-over pattern of stippled scrolls and rosettes, maroon morocco label with decorative bands at head and foot. Woodcut initials, engraved frontispiece portrait. Front pastedown with the engraved bookplate of Sir Mountague Cholmeley. Title page printed in red and black. Wing M-2506; Lowndes II, 1594; Graesse IV, 593. Front joint cracked alongside lowest compartment, upper board with shallow abrasion at center near joint, head of spine, corners, and joints a bit rubbed, but the decorative original binding entirely solid, with no serious wear, and still very impressive. Fore margin of one leaf a little soiled, frontispiece lightly offset onto title page, two leaves with short tear in margin at head or foot, a few small rust holes and additional trivial faults, otherwise A FINE COPY INTERNALLY, the text especially fresh and quite bright and clean. This account of the military actions of Blaise de Montluc (1501-77), marshal of France, provides a military history of the period from 1521-76. And, as the title suggests, it can also serve as a handbook of 16th century techniques of "Combats, Rencounters, Skirmishes, Battels, Sieges, Assaults, Scalado's, the Taking and Surprizes of Towns and Fortresses [and] the Defences of the Assaulted and Besieg'd." The French king Henry IV called the work the "breviary" of soldiers. Montluc narrates in great detail his 50 years of military action, first as a simple soldier and finally as France's highest officer. He served under Francis I, then Francis' son and grandsons, in a period when France was contesting with Spain for control of much of Italy as well as fighting the Huguenot Protestants at home. Among the most notable episodes of Montluc's chronicle are the battle of Cerisolles in Piedmont, the defense of besieged Siena, and the battle of La Rochelle. The work gives a vivid depiction of warfare of the period as well as the author himself in his role as warrior. Montluc rose through the ranks because of his initiative, courage, and skill in battle, and he is not reluctant to share the high opinion he has of himself. (Our translator forgives this vainglory by saying that bragging to a Gascon like Montluc "is as natural as bravery.") He fought in the front ranks throughout his career and was often wounded. Our translator, Charles Cotton (1630-97), was a polished poet, although his habit of writing scurrilous burlesques somewhat tarnished his literary reputation. An avid angler, he was a close friend of Izaak Walton; his "Instructions How To Angle for a Trout or Grayling in a Clear Stream" was appended to Walton's "Compleat Angler" from 1750 onward. Among Cotton's translations, the best known is his English version of Montaigne, considered a classic. In our volume he also contributes a dedication to the Earl of Chesterfield, an address to the reader, and a poem on Montluc and his commentaries. (Included here as well are prefatory poems by Thomas Flatman and Richard Newcourt.) The fine original binding is clearly English and much in the style of Roger Bartlett (see Nixon's "English Restoration Bookbindings," Nos. 117-21).
