        A map of Russia.

      1676. Copper engraving, mm 400x508 (sheet size: mm 417x532), later hand colouring. English text on verso.One of the most decorative maps of western Russia bounded by the North, White, Black and Caspian Seas. The map follows the work of Gerritsz and Blaeu, including the bird's-eye plan of Moscow in an inset at top left. At right are views of Narva, Archangel Sckagoroda, the Emperor's Court, a hot house, and a mill. The title cartouche features several Russian gentlemen, one of whom is holding the coat of arms of the Russian Empire. Engraved by Francis Lamb, whose imprint appears at bottom right, this map was published only in the 1676 edition of Speed's Prospect of The Most Famous Parts of the World. . . , published by Bassett & Chiswell in 1676. For this edition, the publishers (Speed had been dead for 50 years) added this map of Russia, along with other maps of Asia and north America. As a result, these are by far the scarcest of the regional maps from Speed's. Good condition, partly remargined on three sides, minor restoration at centerfold.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Vigevano, 20. I. 1676.

      1676. 1 S. auf gefalt. Bogen. Folio. Als Bischof von Vigevano in der Lombardei, an den Dominikaner Raimondo Capizucchi (1615-91), der seit 1654 das Amt des "maestro del sacro palazzo apostolico" bekleidete (und 1681 Kardinal wurde), in Zusammenhang mit der bevorstehenden Ernennung des Lorenzo Mayers Caramuel (1617-83) zum Bischof von Castellamare: "Son tantos los favores que V. S. R.ma ha hecho y haze siempre a Caramuel, que el por no ser ingrato, y viendo que en un sugeto no puede cumplir con lo mucho que debe, se multiplica para poder servir mejor en diversos suppuestos. Digolo, porque bessara la mano de V. S. R.ma Monsenor Laurecio Mayers Caramuel, nombrado obispo de Castelmar, para que V. S. R.ma le reciba en el numero de sus servidores, y lo comunique las gracias y favores que suele. En mi libro, que offrecera a V. S. R.ma conocera el mundo, que conosco la denda ya que es tanta que no la puedo reconoscer. Acabo rogando a Dios nos guarde y prospere la persona de V. S. R.ma [...]". Spätes Schreiben des bis zur Sprunghaftigkeit geistig wendigen Theologen und Ingenieurs. Böhmischer Abstammung und aus Madrid gebürtig, wirkte er u. a. in Löwen, Schottland, Wien und Prag, bevor er seinem Protektor Kardinal Chigi (nunmehr Papst Alexander VII.) nach Italien folgte. Auch Kaiser Ferdinand III. förderte ihn lange aufgrund seiner Kenntnisse in der Festungsbaukunst und seiner heroischen Verteidigung Prags gegen die Schweden im Jahre 1648; das Bistum Vigevano verdankte er der Intervention der Habsburger. Er publizierte zu einer Fülle von Themen, darunter eine der ersten Behandlungen des Binärsystems (wie auch der praktischen Anwendung der Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung auf das Glücksspiel). - Lorenzo Mayers Caramuel wurde am 27. April 1676 zum Bischof von Castellamare di Stabia in Süditalien ernannt und am 10. Mai geweiht. 1678 wurde er Bischof des nahen Gaeta. - Faltspuren.

        Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. Montgomery Shire.

      London: Bassett & Chiswell 1676 - Single sheet (15 x 20 inches) Full margins showing the plate mark (slight browning to edge, foxing). A handsome uncolored map of Montogmeryshire, as part of John Speed's famous Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. The copper plates for this map were gngraved by Jodocus Hondius in his workshop in Amsterdam, resulting in a prime example of the level of craft and detail found in the Atlas. A title cartouche baring the royal coat of arms flanked by a set of hounds, introduce us to this stunning map of Montgomery Shire. A desirable and innovative aspect to Speed's maps are his town plan insets. Here we find the town of Montgomery laid out by John Speed himself, as indicated by the 'Scale of Pases'. This town plan was particularly mapped to the smallest details, such as the water well and towers. The key for his letter guide to the significant roads and buildings and Montgomery shield are also included. The coat of arms of Phillip Herbert, the 1st Earle of Montgomery, is showcased in the lower left corner. Philip was first given the title of 4th Earl of Pembroke and was the chief favorite of James I for many years. In 1605, King James I of England created him Earl of Montgomery and Baron Herbert of Shurland. In 1630, when he succeeded to the Earldom of Pembroke, the head of the Herbert family has carried the double title of Earl of Pembroke and Montgomery. The arms shown here are used for the representations of both titles. This edition of the map has the later addition of a strapwork frame, holding the text "Described by Christopher Saxton Augemented and published by John Speed and are to be solde by the Thomas Bassett in Fleetstreet, and Ric Chiswell in St Paul's Churchyard". Some earlier published maps left this space blank. The county maps found in the Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine were the first consistent attempt to show territorial divisions, but it was mainly Speed's town plans that were the major innovation and probably his greatest contribution to British cartography. Together, they formed the first printed collection of town plans of the British Isles and, for at least 50 of the 73 included in the Theatre, it was the first time these towns had been mapped. While being the first English atlas of the British Isles, Speed's Atlas was also one of the first attempts to accurately survey Ireland and to incorporate a comprehensive list of their town plans into the maps. The 1676 edition of Speed's atlas never came with original color. The examples of this map of the Montgomeryshire should always be uncolored and never colored. Born in Cheshire, John Speed developed his interest in maps in the 1580s, after moving to London to pursue his passions outside of tailoring. He there joined the Society of Antiquaries, where his enthusiasm for cartography won him the attention of William Camden, Robert Cotton, and Sir Fulke Greville. By working with these figures, Speed was able to do a large amount of research for his own work. In 1596, Greville bequeathed Speed with an unlimited allowance to research, and then later write, the Historie of Great Britaine. It was during this project which Speed had the encouragement to add a cartographic supplement to the work - what we today know as his most famous atlas. After being first published in 1611-1612, the 'Theatre of Great Britain' dominated the seventeenth-century English map market, going through many reprints and editions. Thanks to the Atlas' success, Speed earned the title of England's most well-known Stuart period cartographer and his work became the blueprint for folio atlases until the mid-18th century. Historically, Speed is also noted for placing England into the mainstream of map publishing, which had been dominated by the Dutch since the late sixteenth century. This map of Montgomeryshire is an excellent part of the Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine, and would be an outstanding addition to all map collections.

        Commentarius in Ruzname Naurus sive Tabulae aequinoctiales novi Persarum & Turcarum anni. Nunc primum editae è Bibliotheca, cujus accedit Dissertatio, de earundem usu. Augsburg, Johann Schönigk f. Theophil Göbel, 1676.

      1676. Small 4to. (14), 137, (19) pp. With engr. frontispiece and 22 engr. plates by Melchior Haffner. Contemporary calf. First facsimile edition of any oriental manuscript. 16 of the 22 finely engraved plates show a Persian perpetual calendar with Ottoman Turkish "commentarius" and floral borders. Welsch had acquired the ms. from Christoph Weikmann's Kunstkammer in Ulm. The remaining six plates are concerned with Arabian astronomy: astrolabe, orrery, zodiac, circular table of Sundays and names of the months in various languages. - The calculation of this calendar is today attributed to the 9th-c. Persian mathematician Wafâ al Buzjâni (cf. BSB München; Humboldt-Universität Berlin). The predominant attribution to one Turkish Sheikh Wafâ had been disputed by Babinger as early as 1927. Abu'l-Wafâ al Buzjâni is regarded as "the last great representative of the mathematics-astronomy school that arose around the beginning of the ninth century, shortly after the founding of Baghdad" (DSB I, 39). His astronomic oeuvre is preserved merely in fragments. The calligraphic commentary, however, is Turkish and (according to Babinger) was prepared by a 17th-c. magistrate, 'Ajn-i 'Alî Mueddinzâde. - Welsch (1624-77) was a physician and "a researcher of the very first magnitude [...] while the works of this polymath were mainly dedicated to the Arabian and Persian sciences, he also has provided proof of his close study of Ottoman Turkish. In this connexion, his important 'Commentarius in Ruzname Naurus' must be cited" (cf. Babinger 1919). Welsch's "Dissertatio" (with Arabic typeface) is aimed at the usefulness of the calendar for relative oriental chronology: he also compares the works of Schall von Bell and Andreas Müller on Chinese astronomy and chronology. - Bookplate of South Library on front pastedown.

Il lavoro di un gesuita oscurare che è l'unico libro, e che morì l'anno della sua pubblicazione, da l'anima degli animali è un lavoro sulla natura dell'anima, che unì le teorie di Cartesio su macchina uomo sulla dicotomia corpo-anima. Lorque Dilly troverà che i suoi presupposti simili a quelli di Cartesio, rimproverava per non aver considerato i pericoli di comprensione che non consentono l'automazione. Inoltre, i termini di apprendimento, come dato dall'autore saranno sviluppate solo nel XIX. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Reliure en pleine basane d'époque usagée. Coiffes arrachées.

Oeuvre d'un obscure Jésuite dont c'est le seul ouvrage, et qui mourut l'année de sa publication, De l'âme des bêtes est un travail sur la nature de l'âme, qui rejoint les théories de Descartes sur l'homme machine et sur la dichotomie corps-âme. Lorque Dilly s'apercevra que ses hypothèses rejoignent celles de Descartes, il reprochera à ce dernier de ne pas avoir estimé les dangers d'une compréhension qui n'admet pas l'automatisme. Par ailleurs les termes de l'apprentissage tels que donnés par l'auteur seront développés seulement au XIXe. NB : Cet ouvrage est disponible à la librairie sur demande sous 48 heures.

        Cambridgeshire described with the division of the hundreds'

      London: John Sudbury & George Humble 1676 - London: John Sudbury & George Humble. Speed, John (1552-1629) Single sheet (15 x 20 inches, full margins showing the plate mark, two repaired tears on bottom margin an inch either side of the crease line, condition commensurate with age). An appealing uncolored engraved map of Cambridge, stretching the border with Huntingdonshire in the west to Suffolk in the east. There is an expanded plan of the historic university town of Cambridge in the North West. The map was printed as part of Speeds revered atlas, 'Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine'. The map was part of the earliest English attempt at producing an atlas on a grand scale as part of 'The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britain', the work for which Speed is best known. This celebrated Atlas contained the first set of county maps consistently attempting to show the boundaries of territorial divisions and the first truly comprehensive set of English town plans-a notable contribution to British topography. After 15 years assembling the Atlas it was published to immediate success: three new editions and issues appeared during Speed's lifetime and the work remained popular into the eighteenth century. Indeed the maps of this Atlas remain one of the most popular with map collectors around the world. John Speed was born in the Cheshire village of Farndon and from his youth pursued his father's profession of tailoring. He later moved to London to continue this trade, though Speed's real passions lay elsewhere, namely in the fields of antiquity and cartography. He joined the Society of Antiquaries where his enthusiasm soon attracted the attention of notables such as William Camden and Sir Fulke Greville. In 1596 Greville provided Speed with a full time allowance to write a 'Historie of Great Britaine'. It was during this project that Speed decided to add a cartographic supplement to the work and it was from this that his famous atlas, 'The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine', was born. The individual maps are the best known and among the most sought-after of all county maps. The map of Cambridge was particularly desirable as shown by the fact it was one of the few county maps selected to be printed as individual sheets as well as part of Atlas. The maps themselves were derived from the best and most up- to-date sources available. However, Speed also made innovations of his own - introducing town plans such as the one of Cambridge seen on this map. This map is also decorated with two vignettes of scholars of the university as well as the coats of arms of the colleges of Cambridge University and local nobles. Also included is a decorative strap-work title cartouche astride the royal coat of arms surrounded by a lion and unicorn. The overall effect is to produce very decorative, attractive and informative map. Description prepared for Arader Galleries by Jack Rogers (Eton College, Oxford University Geography Undergraduate)

Important epithets are given, such as 'Bellus Clericus' (Beauclerc) for Henry I, and 'Cor Leonis' (Lionheart) for Richard I, shown with a lion at his feet and a bolt in his shoulder. Beer (1638-1712) was something of an expert on European monarchs, also publishing works on the rulers of Austria, Hungary, Spain, Denmark, and Sweden. BL German 1601-1700, B613; VD17 23:312763A.

        ORNITHOLOGIAE LIBRI TRES.

      London JOHN MARTYN 1676 - First edition. Folio (36.3 x 22.5 cm.), 2 folding letterpress tables, 77 engraved plates, lacking initial imprimatur leaf, browning to text leaves, title-leaf slightly frayed at fore-edge and with very small hole in centre, three plates with tears repaired, later vellum with arms tooled in blind on covers, a good example. "The Ornithologiæ libri tres (referred to as the Ornithology) is one of the first truly scientific ornithological texts. It was published four years after the death of Francis Willughby (1635–1672) by his friend and collaborator John Ray (1627–1705). These two natural historians had met at Trinity College Cambridge in the 1650s and spent time travelling around Britain and Europe collecting and observing nature. Previous works concerning birds typically contained information gleaned from earlier sources such as Aristotle and Pliny with extra comments by the author. These works would usually describe the birds, where they might be found, whether they were edible, if they had any medicinal value, and what their human traits and characteristics were (for example Wrens are viewed as brave while Finches are dim-witted). It was also not uncommon to find mythical and fabled birds such as the phoenix and griffin amongst the pages of such works. As the study of natural history progressed the standards of ornithological works improved but they still lacked sensible and coherent organisation. Birds tended to be grouped together by habitat and then by their actions. Walter Charleton's (1619–1707) system, explained in his Onomasticon zoicon (London, 1668), involved looking at the birds' diets, whether they bathed (and in what water/sand) or sang. The way birds were ordered changed with the publication of the Ornithology. Firstly, they are classed here as land or water birds. The land birds are then divided into those with crooked beaks and claws and then those with straight beaks. The water birds are divided into those 'that wade in the waters, or frequent watery places, but swim not; The second, such as are of a middle nature between swimmers and waders, or rather that partake of both kinds, some whereof are cloven-footed, and yet swim; others whole-footed, but yet very long-leg'd like the waders: The third is of whole-footed, or fin-toed Birds, that swim in the water'. This is thought to be the first attempt to rationally classify birds. The 77 illustrations contained in the Ornithology come from various sources. Some are copies made from the collection of pictures and specimens owned by Willughby, others Ray had commissioned. The quality of the illustrations varies greatly; some are very lifelike and easily identified while others are not. Many of the birds have unusual postures for their species while those drawn from specimens (dead or alive) tend to be the more accurate. Ray himself puts the lack of quality down to the fact that he was unable to fully oversee the engravers' work as he was away from London and had to send instructions by letter. The illustrations credited to Thomas Browne (1605–1682) are of the best quality. These are thought to include the illustrations of the Shearwater, Little Auk, Razorbill, and Great Northern Diver" (Dawn Moutrey, University of Cambridge, Whipple Library).

        Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine: York Shire.

      London: Bassett & Chiswell 1676 - Single sheet (15 x 20 inches) Full margins showing the plate mark (small quarter inch tear on lower left, slight edge browning). An elegant map depicting the royal county of Yorkshire, including part of Westmore Land, Lancashire, Lincolneshire, and the Germain Ocean (today's North Sea). The map was printed from copper plates engraved by Jodocus Hondius in his workshop in Amsterdam in 1610. The upper right-hand corner of this map bares a detailed coat of arms used by King Charles the First. As King, Charles bore the royal arms undifferenced: quarterly, I and IV grand-quarterly: azure three fleurs-de-lis Or (for France) and Gules three lions passant guardant in pale Or (for England); II Or a lion rampant within a tressure flory-counter-flory Gules (for Scotland); III Azure a harp Or stringed Argent (for Ireland). The compass rose alongside it provides us with another striking example of Hondius' detailed aesthetic. "Performed by John Speede and are to be sold by Thomas Bassett in Fleet Street and by Richard Chiswell in St. Paul's Churchyard". The county maps found in the Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine were the first consistent attempt to show territorial divisions, but it was mainly Speed's town plans that were the major innovation and probably his greatest contribution to British cartography. Together, they formed the first printed collection of town plans of the British Isles and, for at least 50 of the 73 included in the Theatre, it was the first time these towns had been mapped. While being the first English atlas of the British Isles, Speed's Atlas was also one of the first attempts to accurately survey Ireland and to incorporate a comprehensive list of their town plans into the maps. Born in Cheshire, John Speed developed his interest in maps in the 1580s, after moving to London to pursue his passions outside of tailoring. He there joined the Society of Antiquaries, where his enthusiasm for cartography won him the attention of William Camden, Robert Cotton, and Sir Fulke Greville. By working with these figures, Speed was able to do a large amount of research for his own work. In 1596, Greville bequeathed Speed with an unlimited allowance to research, and then later write, the Historie of Great Britaine. It was during this project which Speed had the encouragement to add a cartographic supplement to the work - what we today know as his most famous atlas. After being first published in 1611-1612, the 'Theatre of Great Britain' dominated the seventeenth-century English map market, going through many reprints and editions. Thanks to the Atlas' success, Speed earned the title of England's most well-known Stuart period cartographer and his work became the blueprint for folio atlases until the mid-18th century. Historically, Speed is also noted for placing England into the mainstream of map publishing, which had been dominated by the Dutch since the late sixteenth century. This map of Yorkshire is an excellent part of the Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine, and would be an outstanding slice of history to add to every map collection. The 1676 edition of Speed's atlas never came with original color. The examples of our map of Yorkshire should always be uncolored and never colored.

        Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. "Suffolke described and divided into Hundreds, The situation of the fayre towne Ipswich shewed, with the armes of the most noble families that have bene either Dukes or Earles both of that Countie as also of Clare"

      London: Bassett & Chiswell 1676 - Single sheet (15 x 20 inches) Full margins showing the plate mark (slight browning to edge, ink smear margin, top left corner torn) A handsome uncolored county map of Suffolk; taken from the famous Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine by English cartographer John Speed. The plates were engraved by Jodocus Honius in 1610, in Amsterdam. This map of Suffolk is the best available of the county; and Speed's maps are highly sought after due to their high level of accuracy, detail, and craftsmanship. Suffolk is an East Anglican county of great historic origin in England. It has borders with Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, and Essex. The North Sea lies to its east. The county is depicted as low-lying - with few hills and largely flat, arable land. The significance of this county is reflected in the admirable decorations on the map; such as the cartouches, sailing ship, figures, and a compass rose held by cherubim. The inset town plan of Ipswich is elegantly bordered and flanked by the images of the Roman general, Petillius Cerealis, on the left and the Queen of the Iceni, Boadicea, on the right. Ipswich has been known to be an occupied land since the Saxon period; and its port has been one of Britain's most important for the whole of its history. The plan is annotated with letters to describe the significant roads and buildings of the town; guided by a legend. This intricate plan was mapped by John Speed himself, as indicated by his signature 'Scale of Pases'. The left and right sides of the map are dictated to the coat of arms. The right bares the arms of the Dukes and Earles of Suffolk . Notable arms include those of Henry Grey, 1st Duke of Suffolk (1551) and father to Lady Jane Grey; and Charles Brandon, 1st Duke of Suffolk (1514) and brother-in-law to Henry VIII. The left side portrays the Dukes and Earls of Clare. Notable arms include those of Thomas Lancaster, 1st Duke of Clarence (1412) and second son of King Henry IV. The county maps found in the Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine were the first consistent attempt to show territorial divisions, but it was mainly Speed's town plans that were the major innovation and probably his greatest contribution to British cartography. Together, they formed the first printed collection of town plans of the British Isles and, for at least 50 of the 73 included in the Theatre, it was the first time these towns had been mapped.

        Histoire de la vie de Monsieur le Maréchal de Turenne, et réflexions sur quelques affaires du temps.

      A Ville-Franche, chez Charles de la Vérité, l'an 1676 ; in-12, maroquin châtaigne, dos à nerfs décoré de palmettes dorées, titre et date dorés, grande composition centrale dorée, autour d'un cartouche central ovale, large roulette intérieure, toutes tranches dorées sur marbrure (reliure non signée du XIXe); [4] titre et "Au lecteur", 141 pp., [5] pp. de Sommaire, [1] f. blanc ; portrait gravé sur cuivre de "Henricus de la Tour, vicomte de Turenne" en frontispice. Edition originale rarissime de cet opuscule biographique, probablement le tout premier publié après la mort du grand Maréchal de France, tué par un boulet à la bataille de Salzbach, le 27 juillet 1675, et dont l'anonymat n'a pas été percé ; l'auteur qui semble étranger à la France, dresse un tableau admiratif mais aussi critique du plus grand tacticien militaire de son époque, qui arriva plus d'une fois à transformer une retraite habilement menée en victoire ; il admire aussi le grand général très avare de la vie de ses hommes et totalement admiré par eux mais qui, par moment, laissa se commettre les pires crimes, non justifiés militairement, et qui ravagea et fit massacrer une bonne partie de l'Allemagne et des Flandres. Malgré quelques piqûres foncées, la reliure reste très agréable et d'une très bonne facture, l'intérieur est impeccable et le portrait d'une belle qualité. De toute rareté, nous n'avons pu localiser que deux exemplaires, l'un en Allemagne et l'autre à New York dans une bibliothèque universitaire et, apparemment, aucun dans une grande bibliothèque publique universitaire ou française.

        LA VERGINE PARIGINA. Descritta dal Padre Francesco Fulvio Frugoni dell'Ordine de Minimi. Parte prima.

      Presso Combi, & La Noù, 1676. Opera completa in tre volumi. Cm.15,5x8,2. Pg.(20), 340; (VIII), 412; 360. Legature coeve, allentate, in piena pergamena semirigida con titoli manoscritti ai dorsi. Ad ognuno dei tre frontespizi marca calcografica con due mani che si stringono in bordura ornamentale sostenuta da due putti, ed il motto "Fides" in festone. Alcuni cartigli e capilettera incisi. Ascritto all'Ordine dei padri minimi di San Francesco di Paola, il Frugoni (Genova, 1620 - 1684 circa) studiò in Spagna agli atenei di Alcalà e di Salamanca. Attivo presso l'Accademia degli Addormentati, fu segretario particolare di Aurelia Spinola e compì studi di teologia alla Sorbona. La sua opera principale è "Il cane di Diogene", stampata postuma nel 1689. Scrisse anche alcuni melodrammi, rappresentati con successo in importanti teatri europei. E' considerato uno dei massimi esponenti della lirica seicentesca italiana, cimentandosi altresì, tra i primi, nel romanzo di ispirazione contemporanea. "E' stato definito un "rappresentante tipico della mondanità in veste fratesca, della più strabiliante virtuosità barocca nell'eloquenza, nel romanzo, nella critica, nel teatro" (Sofia Armanini). "La pubblicazione a Venezia della "Vergine parigina" (1661) contiene riferimenti autobiografici che suscitarono scandalo: il Frugoni venne esiliato da Genova e si trasferì a Parigi. L'esperienza vissuta in prima persona offre spunti e considerazioni per quest'opera che vuole celebrare in Aurelia, principessa di Francia secondo il martirologio gallicano, il mito della donna perseguitata ma nobile e pura. I genitori vogliono Aurelia sposa di Eluviano principe di Francia, ma il regno al quale aspira la giovane non è di questo mondo e per questo lascerà "lo sposo, la patria e i genitori". Per questo soffrirà e saprà macerare il proprio dolore; la penitenza serpeggerà sul volto "co' suoi smortigni pallori", la modestia la ricolorirà "col bel vermiglio de' suoi redivivi cinabri", e se con il digiuno saprà pascersi, si sfamerà "con la contemplazione dell'eterna vita". Non è difficile cogliere i motivi sensuali di questa religiosità molto passionale. L'"adorato suo crocefisso" e quell'"amabil costato del suo ferito amatore" richiamano le forti espressioni berniniane della S. Teresa, così come i monologhi rinviano alla teatralità sacra, se non alle prediche declamate nella settimana santa. Nell'emblematico conflitto fra bene e male, tipico del romanzo agiografico barocco, si può cogliere la visione drammatica del mondo con toni cupi e dolorosi. Il Fugoni giunse a Parigi nel dicembre del 1661. La morte di Onorato II, avvenuta di lì a pochi mesi, risolse i problemi per i quali la duchessa e il Frugoni si stavano battendo. Aurelia infatti ereditò i beni di casa Spinola e lo stesso Frugoni non faticò molto a pervenire a un accordo con il primogenito della duchessa, che divenne principe di Monaco. Nell'autunno del 1663 Aurelia si portò a Genova, ma per l'esule Frugoni il viaggio si dové interrompere a Torino" (da "Dizionario Biografico Treccani") . > La presente edizione settecentesca dell'opera del Frugoni non è segnalata né in SBN né in alcuna delle bibliografie consultate. Codice libreria 128537.

        Collection of 138 arrests and memoires, of which 76 concern Louis Dominique Bourguignon, called Cartouche

      1676-1764. Crime and Punishment during the Ancien Regime [Cartouche, Louis Dominique Bourguignon (1693-1721).] Collection of 76 official court records relating to the arrests, trials, sentences and executions of Cartouche and members of his criminal gang. Various places and publishers, 1721-22. With: 62 documents, including official arrest and sentencing records, relating to crimes committed in France in the 17th and 18th centuries. Various places and publishers, 1676, 1716 and 1727-64. 138 documents in total. Various sizes (mostly 4to). 247 x 177 mm. Bound together in one volume, 18th cent. mottled calf, gilt spine, leather label, light wear. Minor foxing, a few leaves repaired, but overall fine. Manuscript notations on a few leaves. Manuscript label reading "Ex libris C. T. Noel du Payrat" on front pastedown, referring either to French jurist Pierre Theodore NoÃŽl du Payrat (1761-1832) or a member of his family; see below.An extraordinary collection of 17th and 18th century French legal documents and other papers on specific crimes committed in France during this period. Over half the documents relate to the arrests, trials and punishments of Louis Dominique Bourguignon, called Cartouche, and his notorious "Cours des Miracles" gang of criminals. One of France's most famous outlaws, Cartouche has been portrayed (and romanticized) in countless stories, plays, songs and films, including the 1962 film "Cartouche," starring Jean-Paul Belmondo and Claudia Cardinale. His crimes and those of his followers are exhaustively detailed in this collection, which consists chiefly of documents issued by the Cour de Parlement de Paris, the ancien regime's primary legislative and judicial body.Cartouche was the son of a wine merchant. After expulsion from school, he became the head of a gang in Normandy, then served for a time as a police informant before joining the army. Upon leaving the army, Cartouche and some of his fellow soldiers formed a new criminal gang, headquartered in the Cours des Miracles, a notorious Parisian slum. The Cours des Miracles gang, which appears to have had over one hundred members (both male and female), was an early example of organized crime in France: Cartouche had himself elected leader, and punished challenges to his authority with death. Members of Cartouche's gang terrorized the city with almost daily robberies and murders; they were especially feared for their attacks on carriages traveling from Versailles to Paris.Betrayed by one of his accomplices, Cartouche was arrested on January 6, 1721 and thrown into prison. Believing that his gang would rescue him, he at first refused to divulge any information to the authorities, even when subjected to the question extraordinaire, a particularly brutal form of judicial torture. Cartouche was scheduled to be executed on November 27, 1721, and hoped for rescue up until the last minute; however, when he finally realized his gang had broken faith with him, he begged the officiating priest for a reprieve so that he, in turn, could betray his former associates. On November 28, after making his confession, Cartouche was broken on the wheel (rompu vif), the standard execution for robbers and brigands in 18th-century France. Document no. 6 in our collection, dated November 26, 1721, records the death sentence given to Cartouche and seven of his associates by the Cour de Parlement de Paris.After Cartouche's execution, most of the remaining Cours des Miracles gang members were arrested and tried for their crimes, which included murder, armed robbery, breaking and entering, stealing from churches and royal residences, receiving stolen goods, and harboring other criminals. These proceedings, which took place at the Cour de Parlement de Paris in the summer and fall of 1722, are recorded in documents 8-86 in our list (except for documents 12, 15, 62 & 85). The sentences included hanging, being burned alive, the wheel, branding, whipping, the stocks, banishment and the galleys.Of the remaining documents in this collection, the most interesting are a defense of the notorious Marquise de Brinvilliers (no. 1), executed in 1676 for poisoning her family; the arrest records of Robert-Francois Damiens (no. 130), drawn and quartered in 1757 for attempting to stab Louis XV, and of Damiens's family (no. 131), arrested and punished for their association with him; and a record of the judgment against the famous French smuggler and bandit Louis Mandrin (no. 122). The remaining documents record arrests and punishments for diverse crimes, including theft, pimping, infanticide, fraud, heresy, and refusing a dying person the last rites.This remarkable collection on crime may have been assembled by Pierre Theodore Noîl du Payrat, seigneur de Razat (1761-1832), jurist, King's counsel, acting procurer general of the Parlement of Paris, delegate from the Dordogne to the États generaux in 1789, and member of the Council of Five Hundred. Noîl de Peyrat's descendants still maintain the Chateau de Razat and its important library of books on jurisprudence.A complete listing of the items in this collection can be found on our website under the Rare Book tab.

        The Anatomy of Melancholy. What it is, with all the kinds causes, symptomes, prognostickes & severall cures of it. By Democritus Junior [pseud.]. The Eighth Edition, corrected and augmented by the Author

      Printed for Peter Parker, Oxford 1676 - Pp. 4 p.l., 46, [6], 434, [16] table, [2] ad. Complete with half-title, elaborate engraved title in compartments, including portrait of the author, signed C. Le Blon, woodcut headpieces and initials. With rare final leaf listing "Books printed for and sold by Peter Parker". Bound in recent polished calf, plain sides with edges of boards tooled in gilt, spine divided into 6 gilt-ruled compartments between raised bands, each compartment with elaborate gilt corner pieces surrounding central gilt arabesque, morocco label, gilt. Old ink signature on upper margin of title, some light damp-staining to early leaves, but otherwise a very good copy in a superb period style binding. Robert Burton's Anatomy of Melancholy was one of the most widely-read books of the seventeenth century. It was revered as much for its eloquence of style, as for its encyclopaedic learning on the subject of melancholy, a condition with which the author had a lifelong acquaintance. Dr. Johnson was a great admirer of Burton's work, praising it as "the only book that ever took him out of bed two hours sooner than he wished to rise". Laurence Sterne's Tristram Shandy was permeated with Burton's influence, but it was Charles Lamb's passionate devotion which did most to keep alive the memory of the "fantastic great old man" and his monumental work, a book that has been the constant companion of readers ever since. First published in quarto format in 1621, Burton's masterpiece was then reprinted several times in folio, the present Eighth Edition being the last of the 17th century editions. It reproduces the famous engraved title by Christian Le Blon (d. 1665), with the portrait of Burton as "Democritus Junior", which appeared in the third edition (1628), and contains the author's final additions and corrections. Wing B6184. PMM 120 (1621 ed.). Size: Folio [Attributes: Hard Cover]
