Bacon, Francis [Rt. Hon. Francis Lord Verulam, Viscount St. Albans].
London: Thomas Lee, 1676. Edited by William Rawley. Tenth edition ( xiv, 235 pp.; iv, 32 pp.; ii, pp. 239- 267; ii, pp. 271- 340; ii, pp. [221]- 227). Page 226 misnumbered as p. 234 in Articles of Enquiry, which itself is separately numbered; separate title page for each inclusion. Small folio (20 cm x 30 cm) in full contemporary leather, five raised bands, gilt title and decoration to spine; absent any frontis, plates; chips to margin of first few pages; hinges and tips expertly repaired. Contemporary marginalia, in ink and pencil, has been retained as part of the ‘life’ of this book, which from all appearances has been closely studied and carefully kept. A pleasing copy of this tenth edition-- a sort of Bacon anthology, originally compiled by Rawley shortly after Bacon’s death, and exemplifying the ‘new thinking’ which anticipated later systematic scientific investigation, formation of Royal societies, and the like. In view of the importance usually attached to Bacon’s work, then, it is worth noting the last entry in Sylva Sylvarum is ‘His Lordships usual Receipt for the Gout.’ [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Cooper, 1676. A fine copy of the first English auction catalogue; this is a rare book on the market (and, according to ESTC, not at all common in libraries). "The library sold was that of Lazarus Seaman (d. 1675), Puritan divine and one-time master of Peterhouse; he is today primarily remembered as the owner of the books which furnished the material for the first English book auction. There were 5,571 lots, divided into four sections according to size, each subdivided according to subjects. The sale realized over 700 pounds, the highest price achieved being 8 pounds 2s for St. John Chrysostom's Opera, Paris 1636."-Breslauer & Folter, Bibliography, 74. "The idea of an auction had been suggested to Dr Seaman's executors by Joseph Hill, a presbyterian minister who had left England for Holland in 1662 because of the Act of Uniformity. He was pastor of the Scottish Church at Middelburg, until he was forced to return to England in 1673 during the Anglo-Dutch War. More than twenty years later Edward Millington in a letter of 25 June 1697 about other matters thanked Hill 'for your great Service done to Learning and Learned Men in your first advising and effectually setting on foot that admirable and universally approved way of selling Librarys by Auction amongst us'."-Pollard & Ehrman … [Click Below for Full Description]

There he received the support of the physicians John Maplet and Samuel Bave, both long established in the city and Guidott soon built up his practice. Guidott also worked to establish a national reputation for both himself and for the city of Bath and from 1669 he published a series of works about the waters of Bath, about Bath's history as a therapeutic centre and about the physicians of Bath. Guidott's reputation was such that he was offered positions as professor at both Venice and Leiden. Guidott declined, remaining in Bath where he carried out experiments on the chemical composition of its waters. In this work he discusses his analyses of Bath waters which showed that the water contains nitre, sulphur and several salts of metals. , 8vo 8" - 9" tall, [32] 200 pp .

Amsterdam, Officina Janssonio-Waesbergiana, 1676. Folio. Contemporary full mottled calf with five raised bands to richly gilt spine. A few larger dampstains to boards, and corners bumped. With the engraved book plate of "Marchion Raymundi Sorbolunghi" to inside of front board. Browned throughout and a dampstain to last half. Woodcut title-vignette, woodcut initials, numerous large (both half and 1/4 page) and smaller woodcut text-illustrations throughout, and 6 engraved text-illustrations (mostly 1/3 page, depicting mummies, mummy-cases, and various scenes). (16), 72, (6) pp. + 5 engraved plates, two of which are engraved, three of which are folded. ¶ The rare (presumed) first edition of Kircher's great work on Egyptian hieroglyphs, one of the earliest attempts to decipher the signs in modern times. Although we now know that his results were wrong, they were believed at the time, Kircher was considered the ultimate authority on hieroglyphic writing, and his works on the subject were greatly influential, not least in creating a strong interest for the Egyptian language and culture, resulting in numerous publications on the subject throughout the 18th century. To a certain extent, it is also Kircher's theories that later generations built upon when attempting to crack the code of the hieroglyphs. <br><br>According to Graesse, there should have been an earlier edition of the "Sphinx", printed the same year, but in Rome. We have not been able to find any other references to this edition, neither in other bibliographies, nor in library holdings. OCLC merely records copies prin … [Click Below for Full Description]

Very good condition outside, text shows browning and foxing. Stamp on reverse of title page.***A particularly scarce and hardly known work, preceding Ludolf's famous publication by a full 5 years and at the same time Ludolf's very first publication! - This is a preliminary outline of the material to be covered extensively in Ludolf's 'Istoria Aethiopica', which was published in three volumes from 1681 to 1693. Job Ludolf, a German German scholar, and the 'founder of Ethiopistics' (Katalog der Eutiner Landesbibliothek) gathered the most important information available about Ethiopia in his time, working for a time in collaboration with one of the Ethiopian monks who stayed in Rome. In addition to his monumental history of the country, he wrote dictionaries and grammars of Ge'ez and Amharic. His intensive studies of Ethiopian culture and life made his work the best 17th-century source on the region described. 'A most important work on Abyssinia' (transl. from Paulitschke).

Full calf rebacked with contrasting spine labels bearing gilt titles, boards with gilt ruled border, modern endpapers, engraved allegorical frontis with explanation on facing page, folding map of the city of Bath before title page, map with 2" tear to lower edge and one fold strengthened on verso, 3 engraved plates [2 folding], seperate title page to each part, one page with a few ink spots and a little bronwing in parts but mostly clean and bright. , Thomas Guidott was a physician and antiquary who studied medicine at Oxford before settling in Bath in 1667. There he received the support of the physicians John Maplet and Samuel Bave, both long established in the city and Guidott soon built up his practice. Guidott also worked to establish a national reputation for both himself and for the city of Bath and from 1669 he published a series of works about the waters of Bath, about Bath's history as a therapeutic centre and about the physicians of Bath. Guidott's reputation was such that he was offered positions as professor at both Venice and Leiden. Guidott declined, remaining in Bath where he carried out experiments on the chemical composition of its waters. In this work he discusses his analyses of Bath waters which showed that the water contains nitre, sulphur and several salts of metals. , 8vo 8" - 9" tall, [32] 200 pp .

VILLEDIEU (Madame de).
Paris, Claude Barbin, 1676. - 4 tomes en 1 volume in-12. 72pp. ; 69pp. ; 68pp.; 55pp. Plein veau, dos lisse orné, filet à froid sur les plats (Reliure moderne). Edition publiée l'année suivant l'originale, chez le même éditeur, de cet ouvrage de la femme lettres française, Marie Catherine Hortense Desjardins, née à Alençon en 1640, morte en 1683. Elle est connue sous le nom d'adoption de Madame Villedieu. "Les désordres de l'Amour" est le dernier de ses romans et son plus grand succès. Il couronne, littérairement et philosophiquement, son œuvre d'imagination. "Les Désordres de l'Amour sont le terme de l'évolution d'un talent qui commence avec 'Alcidamie" et on se réfère la plupart du temps à cette œuvre si l'on veut circonscrire l'achèvement de l'écriture, autant que la psychologie de l'amour chez Madame de Villedieu. Ce qui a surtout changé entre les 'Annales Galantes' et les 'Désordres', c'est le ton, le timbre même de la voix qui raconte ( ) (l'amour) tyranique ou mutin éclate chez Madame de Villedieu comme une puissance incontrôlable, minant la résistance de la raison, asservissant cœur et corps à la sensualité du désir . Le malheur tragique dans 'Les Désordres de l'Amour' n'est pas fondé sur un réjet 'féministe' de l'asservissement, mais sur le désespoir de ne pouvoir posséder l'objet de ses désirs. Possesion et soumission se confondent en une seule et même joie érotique" (C. Venesoen). Des rousseurs. Bon exemplaire dans une reliure moderne. Cf. C. Venesoen, "Etudes sur la littérature féminine au XVIIs." (1990). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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). L'ouvrage se termine par un chapitre signé A.M.D.G, intitulé : "La clef de l'Arithmétique, ou la science des nombres pour résoudre toutes les questions proposées, pour les opérations de la Géométrie françoise". 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.
