Un bois gravé dans le texte représentant des frères siamois.

Il entra en 1674 à l'Académie des Sciences en qualité de chimiste. Ex-libris manuscrit sur la première garde blanche, daté de 1864, ex-libris de 1900 (D.

ANTONINUS LIBERALIS.
Amsterdam (Amstelodami), Apud Janssonio-Waesbergios, 1676. 12mo. (XXXVI),339,(33) p., frontispiece. Overlapping vellum. 13 cm (Ref: Hoffmann 2,193; Willems 1894, Bergman 1894, Rahir 2565; Ebert 750: 'A new and good recension'; Graesse 1,154) (Details: 6 thongs laced through cover; edges dyed blue, woodcut printer's mark on title; Greek text with facing Latin translation; at the end of each chapter the commentary) (Condition: Frontispiece dustsoiled) (Note: Antoninus Liberalis was an ancient Greek grammarian/mythographer, probably of Antonine times (AD 100 and 200). His only surviving work, the 'Metamorphoseon synagoge', (collection of metamorphoses) survives in a single manuscript of the later ninth century, now in the Palatine Library in Heidelberg; it contains 41 briefly summarised tales about mythical metamorphoses effected by offended deities, unique in that they are couched in prose, not verse. Many of the transformations in this compilation are found nowhere else, and some may simply be inventions of Antoninus. The manner of the narrative is a laconic and conversational prose. (Source Wikipedia). The German philologist Wilhelm Xylander (Holzmann), 1532-1576, was professor of Greek at Heidelberg. He published the editio princeps of Marcus Aurelius Antoninus (1558), and of Antoninus Liberalis in 1568. 'He made good use of the MSS accessible to him, and also gave proof of a singular acumen in the emendation of texts'. (Sandys 2,270). The Dutch schoolmaster Thomas Muncker, or Munckerus, was Rector of the Schola Latina of Delft from 1667 till 1680. Our edition of 1676 is t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Première édition, fort rare, avec second état de la page de titre gravée et des vignettes. Après un avis aux lecteurs et des considérations générales sur la géométrie, l'auteur prend le soin d'introduire son traité par une "table des noms propres uzitez en l'exercice pratique de la Géométrie". Suivent les définitions des figures, puis les chapitres de la planimétrie (mesures de l'arpentage), de la longimétrie (longueurs et largeurs des objets), de la stéréométrie (mesure des corps solides), de l'altimétrie (mesure des volumes à l'usage des trois architectures : civile, navale et militaire).

Il s'agit d'un second état de l'impression originale de 1676 comme l'indique le cartouche gratté directement sur le cuivre de la page de titre, les différences de vignettes avec l'exemplaire de la BnF (V-18817), et une correction à la page 77 où un "u" final a été ajouté à la première ligne du titre de départ de la section sur l'altimétrie.

PLUTARCH NORTH Thomas
1676. PLUTARCH. The Lives Of The Noble Grecians and RomansÂ… BOUND WITH: Prosopographia: Or, Some Select Pourtraitures and Lives of Ancient and Modern Illustrious Personages. Cambridge: Printed by John Hayes, 1676. Thick folio, modern full tan speckled calf, raised bands, brown morocco spine labels. $2500.Expanded and highly desirable sixth edition of the first English translation of PlutarchÂ’s Lives, one of the most influential works of the Elizabethan era and a major Shakespeare source. With 25 “Eminent Persons of Ancient and latter times” by Thevet—five of which are new to this edition, including Christopher Columbus and Hernando Cortéz.""The Lives are works of great learning and research, and Plutarch is careful to quote his authorities, whose number indicates a formidable amount of readingÂ… Early translated, by Amyot into French and by North into English, the influence of Plutarch's method has been constantly manifest in the biographies of the modern great and in the authors who have been inspired by it. Shakespeare relied almost exclusively on Plutarch for the historical background of ancient Rome"" (PMM 48). ""North dedicated the book to Queen Elizabeth, and it was one of the most popular of her day. It is written throughout in admirably vivid and robust prose. But it is as Shakespeare's storehouse of classical learning that it presents itself in its most interesting aspect. To it (it is not too much to say) we owe the existence of the plays of Julius Caesar, Coriolanus, and Antony and Cleopatra, while A Midsummer Night's Dream, Pericles and Timon of Athens are … [Click Below for Full Description]

HABERT, Isaac (ed.) - GREEK PONTIFICAL.
Paris: Louis Billaine, 1676 (printed by Pierre Blaise in 1643). Folio (368 x 239 mm). [32], 749 [recte 753], [11] pp. Title printed in red & black with large woodcut printer's device. Text in two columns in Greek and Latin, commentary in single column. Woodcut initials throughout.

Provenance: François Blouet de Camilly, with his armorial bookplate as bishop and inscription on the title; from the Macclesfield library (blindstamp on title and armorial bookplate, paper shelfmark labels on spine).*** A fine copy of the first printed Greek Orthodox pontifical. This is the second issue, with a new title added to the sheets of the 1643 edition. The Archieratikon is the book of Orthodox Catholic rites for service conducted by bishops (the Hieratikon was for priests). The extensive commentary was the work of the theologian and anti-Jansenist polemicist Isaac Habert (ca. 1600-1668), doctor of the theological faculty of the Sorbonne, prédicateur ordinaire du Roi, and, after 1645, Bishop of Vabres. This monumental work of erudition, "the results of his readings in the manuscript euchologies [prayer books] of the Bibliothèque Royale ... ensured him fame [and] is an essential source for the history of Greek liturgy" (Scholasticon, online biographical dictionary of early modern European and American professors of theology and philosophy). … [Click Below for Full Description]

CAVE, Reverend William.
London: R. Royston, 1676. Folio, with a frontispiece and double page 'Tree of Faith' plate, several other cuts in the text; contemporary gilt-ruled polished crimson calf, spine with gilt decorated panels between raised bands. A beautifully printed history of the early church, illustrated with remarkable cuts depicting the apostles persecuted in all manner of ways, including crucifixion, immolation and the dreaded 'cauldron of boyling oyl'. Each apostle is awarded a separate chapter, and is depicted both beatified and under duress. The author, William Cave (1637-1713), was a minister and scholar of Church history who took his Doctor of Divinity at Cambridge before serving as vicar of Islington, and later in London. Cave was chaplain to Charles II and Canon of Winsor. Cave's primary area of expertise was the early history of the Church, and following the structure of Eusebius of Caesarea he weaves the lives of the apostles into a close narrative that illuminates arcane early theology for his readers. Cave openly credits his debt to the tradition of Eusebius, and by so doing was successful making the early history of the Church accessible to a wider audience: 'what is significant about Cave's writings is that they follow the tradition of Christian bio-bibliography that in late antiquity and into the medieval period had such a long and rich history, and which was revived in the Reformation. Cave's works provide valuable evidence for the interest in patristic scholarship at the end of the seventeenth century... ' (ODB). From the library of Chillingham Castle, Northumberland, wit … [Click Below for Full Description]
