Enc. original en pergamino con cierres con algunos desperfectos, aunque el interior del libro es impecable. Folio. Carece de datos de impresión y fecha (las dedicatorias son de Madrid, 1674). Rarísimo. No lo encontramos referenciado en Palau, aunque sí aparece reseñada una refutación a esta obra realizada por D. Joseph Félix de Amada y Torregrosa (ref. 10362) que lleva por título: "Discurso Jurídico. En que la S. Iglesia Metropolitana de nuestra Señora del Pilar primera, y actual Catedral de la Ciudad de Zaragoza, representa las razones, porque se deva mandar recoger, o por lo menos desestimar un papel . escrito por don Luys de Exea, y Talayero" (Evidentemente la obra que aquí ofrecemos es mucho más que el "papel", que anuncia en el título de la refutación, aunque suponemos que se trate de la misma obra).

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."

London: printed for Samuel Mearne, John Martyn, and Henry Herringman, 1674. Fourth edition, the first in octavo; 8vo, pp. [32], 252, [3]; full contemporary calf, sprinkled edges; extremities worn, spine with a few chips out, but in all a good, sound copy. "The earliest book to suggest the now accepted theory of the Asiatic origin of the American aborigine." It went through four editions in England 1614-1674, and six others on the continent. "The author devotes a portion of the book to the first peopling of America, claiming the Tartars as their forefathers. His account of religion in America is very curious, especially the part where he describes an old priest who baptized 700,000! Chapter XXII relates to the idolatries practiced in America" (Sabin).

Boileau Despréaux, Nicolas.
Claude Barbin (pr. by Denys Thierry), 1674. Early edition, following the first of 1670; this is the first edition to appear under the Oeuvres title, and contains nine satires, the first four epistles, L'art poëtique, and a number of other shorter pieces, followed by the Traité du sublime ou du merveilleux dans le discours, translated from Longinus. The handsomely printed volume has much of its text set in italic type, decorated with woodcut tailpieces, typographic and woodcut headpieces, and ornamental capitals. Margins are generous, layout is attractive. P. Landry designed and engraved the classically themed frontispiece, with the plate preceding Le Lutrin having been done by F. Chausseau. Binding: 19th-century signed binding by Léon Gruel: Oxblood morocco framed in gilt double fillets containing a background of gilt-stamped fleurs-de-lis around a central ornamented cartouche. Spine gilt extra, with elaborate gilt-stamped inner dentelles over silk endpapers. All edges gilt over marbling. => Silk bookmarker woven with binder's information! Provenance: Front fly-leaf with armorial bookplate of New York attorney and book collector Frederic Robert Halsey, and with decorative medieval-inspired bookplate of "G.E." Volume with laid-in handwritten note signed by Gruel, on Gruel-Engelmann letterhead, dated 1892.

(Allestree, Richard)
Oxford at the Theatre in Oxford, 1674. Sm. 4to., black turkey morocco tooled in gilt in an all-over design with drawer-handle tools, curls and flower head tools; decorated with silver paint. The spine is divided into six compartments by five raised bands, which are also tooled in gilt (echoing the covers), with silver paint. The title is gilt lettered in the second compartment from the top. One corner and the very head of the rear joint have been skillfully repaired. Marbled endleaves. The binding is the work of the Queen's Binder A and appears to be a twin of a copy of the same title (but the later, 1675, printing), given to the British Library as part of the Henry David gift [See: No 118]. Hobson and Nixon have had much to say about the forty years following the Restoration of King Charles II to his throne in 1660, which has been called THE GOLDEN AGE OF ENGLISH BOOKBINDING. Nixon points out that there were at least four Queen's binders; viz., A, B, C and D, who all started work in 1670, and all made use of the recently introduced drawer-handle tools and volutes with pointellé outlines rather than floral volutes much used by the other binders of the period. This is a FINE EXAMPLE on a most fitting book. Allestree was a man of extensive learning, of moderate views and a fine preacher. He was generous and charitable, of “a solid and masculine kindness,” and of a temper hot, but completely under control [Encyclopædia Britannica 11th ed.].

Justel, Henri, ed.
Louis Billaine, 1674. First edition of this collection of significant and interesting voyages, edited by a scholar and book collector who served in the employ of Louis XIV before being appointed Keeper of the King's Library at St. James by Charles II. The compilation includes French-language travelogues of Barbados, the Nile River, Ethiopia, "l'Empire du Prète-Jean," Guiana, Jamaica, and the English colonies, with illustrations including banana and palmetto trees, Caribbean pottery, and maps of New England, Jamaica (including Florida and the Antilles), and Barbados. Some of both the voyages and the maps make their first published appearances here--among them the New England map depicting the Maryland and Virginia coastlines, engraved by R. Michault after one contained in Richard Blome's Description of the Island of Jamaica, part of which work appears here translated into French. Altogether, a volume notable both for its strong African and North American content and for the aesthetic appeal of its plates and pleasingly ornamented typography.

Cowley, Abraham.
Henry Herringman (pr. by J.M.), 1674. Cowley's collected poems in their fourth edition, beginning with a good impression of => the frontispiece portrait engraved by Faithorne, "an account of the life and writings" of the poet signed by T. Spratt, and two odes on Cowley's death by Thomas Higgons and Sir John Denham. Once considered the epitome of his era's wit, the author of "The Mistress" (verses in honor of love and various women, included in this volume) suffered a notable decline in popularity in subsequent years, prompting Pope's musing "Who now reads Cowley? . . . but still I love the language of his heart." And indeed despite the vagaries of reputation he has always had his worthy appreciators. Cowley's Pindaric odes are present here, as are the "Davideis" and "Davideidos"; also set forth are the "delightful little prose Essays (with verse interwoven)" for which The Concise Cambridge History of English Literature believes Cowley will most ultimately be remembered. Some sections have separate title-pages, bearing the same publisher and date information as the main Provenance: Front pastedown with small armorial bookplate and with bookseller's ticket from Cambridge, England.

Cowley, Abraham
London: Henry Herringman (pr. by J.M.) Folio (30 cm, 11.8"). Frontis., [42], 41, [1 (blank)], 80, [4], 70 (59/60 skipped in pagination, text uninterrupted), 154, 23, [1 (blank)], 148 pp.. 1674 Cowley's collected poems in their fourth edition, beginning with a good impression of => the frontispiece portrait engraved by Faithorne, "an account of the life and writings" of the poet signed by T. Spratt, and two odes on Cowley's death by Thomas Higgons and Sir John Denham. Once considered the epitome of his era's wit, the author of "The Mistress" (verses in honor of love and various women, included in this volume) suffered a notable decline in popularity in subsequent years, prompting Pope's musing "Who now reads Cowley? . . . but still I love the language of his heart." And indeed despite the vagaries of reputation he has always had his worthy appreciators. Cowley's Pindaric odes are present here, as are the "Davideis" and "Davideidos"; also set forth are the "delightful little prose Essays (with verse interwoven)" for which The Concise Cambridge History of English Literature believes Cowley will most ultimately be remembered. Some sections have separate title-pages, bearing the same publisher and date information as the main Provenance: Front pastedown with small armorial bookplate and with bookseller's ticket from Cambridge, England. 17th-century mottled calf, rebacked at some point in the 19th century and again more recently with hinges carefully reinforced (inside); spine gilt extra with gilt-stamped leather title label, covers showing the predictable acid-etching.
