"The work is divided into four books devoted to divining magic, operative magic, and its punishment in the forum exterior and juridical, and in the interior tribunal of the soul and confessional.Magic is defined after Proclus and Psellus as an exacter knowledge of secret things in which, by observing the course and influence of the stars and the sympathies and antipathies of particular things, they are applied to one anothe at the proper time and place and in the proper manner, so that marvels are worked.Torreblanca turns to diabolical magic and the extent of the powers of the devil to make it possible.Torreblanca has jumbled together natural and diabolical magic almost inextricably, but his remaining chapters are on witchcraft, with the two last on natural and divine remedies against it."

Work attributed to Bernard de Montfaucon but whose paternity is discussed. Half black Chagrin late nineteenth. Back to Jansenist nerves with title and date. Cropped short in title page. Bernard de Montfaucon, from Roquetaillade, near Limoux, was one of the most learned men of his time and this is one of the most famous of his time, including his monumental work: ancient explained in FIGS. He was a Benedictine monk of the Congregation of St. Maur. The Abbey of La Trappe, founded by the Cistercian order was annexed to the domain of the Benedictines. It will be reformed according to the seventeenth 'the rule of strict compliance by Rance, much more rigid and severe than that of the Cistercians. It is precisely this reform says Bernard de Montfaucon, reform breathed a spiritual renewal to Christianity, and who saved the Abbey of La Trappe from oblivion and decay in many abbeys which fell at that time. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Oeuvre attribuée à Bernard de Montfaucon mais dont la paternité est discutée. Reliure en demi chagrin noir fin XIXe. Dos à nerfs janséniste avec titre et date. Rogné court en page de titre. Bernard de Montfaucon, originaire de Roquetaillade, près de Limoux, était un des hommes les plus érudits de son temps et par ce fait l'un des plus célèbres de son époque, notamment pour son oeuvre monumentale : l'antiquité expliquée en figures. Il était bénédictin, de la congrégation de Saint Maur. L'abbaye de la Trappe, fondé par l'ordre des cisterciens fut annexée au domaine des bénédictins. Elle sera réformée au XVIIe selon 'la règle de la stricte observance par l'abbé de Rancé, beaucoup plus rigide et sévère que celle des Cisterciens. C'est précisément cette réforme que commente Bernard de Montfaucon, réforme qui insuffla un renouveau spirituel à la chrétienté, et qui sauva l'abbaye de la Trappe de l'oubli et de la décadence dans laquelle tombèrent maintes abbayes à cette époque.

        A sure guide to the practical surveyor, in two parts. The first, shewing how to plot all manner of grounds, whether small inclosures, champain-ground, wood-lands, mountains, and dales, by the semicircle, plain table, and chain. As also, how to find the area, or content thereof, with the manner of protracting, reducing, and dividing the same; and also how to inclose a mannor lying in a common field, with the drawing of a perfect draught or map thereof, and how to deck and beautifie the same. And likewise how to convey water from any spring-head, to any appointed place. The second, shewing how to take the ground-plot of any city or corporation: as also the mensuration of roads, highways, and rivers, with the manner of making a map of any county or Kingdom. The like never before extant

      London, printed by W. Godbid, for Christopher Hassey, at the Flower de Luce in Little-Britain, 1678. Two parts in one vol., 8vo., (12) + 292pp., with 12 engraved plates (of which 11 are folded), many text figures, contemporary panelled calf with raised bands and blind lines, endpapers appropriately renewed. A fine copy. First edition: scarce. Wing H.2521. John Holwell (1649-1686), astrologer and mathematician (in A sure guide> he describes himself as simply 'Philomath'), is known for several astrological publications of which his major work was Catastrophe mundi> (1682). Towards the end of his life it is thought that James II's government sent him to America in 1685 to survey and map New York. It was there that he died having been refused permission to return to England owing to suggestions that he had been implicated in the Monmouth business. 'When he published his Catastrophe> in 1682 he was living on the east side of Spitalfields, near the Red Lion, by Dorset Street, and he advertised his services and tuition there in ?'astronomy, navigation, dyalling, surveying, geography, perspective, and gunnery?'. He achieved considerable prominence in these less febrile activities, especially in surveying. In 1678 he published A Sure Guide to the Practical Surveyor>, dedicated to John Wildman, politician and one-time leveller, which gave detailed instructions on surveying land, roads, and rivers. He used the instruments of Walter Hayes, the foremost instrument maker of the time. Earlier, he had been one of the team working with John Ogilby on his pioneering surveys of English roads, and he used some of this material in his book. In pressing his credentials as a surveyor he confidently asserted that he had ?'the most experience of any man in England?'.' [Bernard Capp in ODNB] Among the folding plates in A sure guide> is an interesting map or plan of the road from London to Hornsey via Highgate, Islington and Holloway, marking such features along the way as Can[on]bury House, Iack Strause Castle (i.e. Jack Straw's Castle), Hullington and Kentish Town.

        Memoires de Hollande EDITION ORIGINALE

      à Paris: Chez Estienne Michallet, 1678. Fine. Chez Estienne Michallet, à Paris 1678, In 12 (10x15,5cm), (8) 456pp., relié. - First Edition, very rare, long attributed to Madame de La Fayette, published the year of The Princess of Cleves, then Courtilz de Sandras and even Pierre Daniel Huet. Full morocco late nineteenth signed Bellevallée glossy red old. Back to nerves Jansenist. Wide frieze gilded interior. Date tail. Very nice copy, well established, large margins, and unwashed. Unlike The Princess of Cleves, or The Princess of Montpensier, the Memoirs of Holland paper is not a new historical character, but displays as a novel of manners which utiise modern names. The work describes, through the love of a Jewish and a Lusignan, life in the Netherlands in the mid seventeenth century; this is one of the only novels daring to face reality as it is and the work deserves to be distinguished in the invention of French fiction as such. The book interested the history and topography of the Netherlands. It should be noted that this work was in the biggest amateur libraries of the nineteenth century (Lignerolles Rochebilière, Rothschild Techener, etc.). --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, très rare, longtemps attribuée à Madame de La Fayette, et publiée l'année de La princesse de Clèves, puis à Courtilz de Sandras et même à Pierre Daniel Huet. Reliure en plein maroquin fin XIXe signé Bellevallée glacé vieux rouge. Dos à nerfs janséniste. Large frise dorée intérieure. Date en queue. Très bel exemplaire, parfaitement établi, grand de marges, et non lavé. A l'inverse de La princesse de Clèves, ou de La princesse de Montpensier, les Memoires de Hollande n'est pas une nouvelle à caractère historique, mais s'affiche comme un roman de moeurs qui utiise des prénoms modernes. L'oeuvre décrit, à travers les amours d'une juive et d'un Lusignan, la vie aux Pays-bas vers le milieu du XVIIe siècle ; c'est un des seuls romans osant affronter la réalité telle qu'elle est et l'oeuvre mérite d'être distinguée dans l'invention de la littérature romanesque française à ce titre. Le livre intéresse l'histoire et la topographie des Pays-bas. Il est à remarquer que cette oeuvre se trouvait dans les plus grandes bibliothèques d'amateurs du XIXe siècle (Lignerolles, Rochebilière, Rothschild, Téchener, etc.)

Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale de cette troisième partie des fables dont la première édition des deux premières parties date de 1668, et qui ont été réimprimées en 1678 pour la troisième fois, formant le premier et le deuxième tome des fables, non présentés ici. La quatrième partie des Fables paraîtra en 1679, et la cinquième en 1694, il est fort rare de les trouver réunies. Brunet précise que l'on peut adjoindre ce troisième tome à la première édition des deux premiers. L'ensemble des 5 parties sera édité en 1705. Cette nouvelle série contient 46 fables et une épître dédicatoire à madame de Montespan, et 46 figures à mi page non signées. Reliure en pleine basane brune d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin brun, et de tomaison en maroquin havane. Coiffes de tête et de queue élimées. mors fendus en tête et queue. Coins émoussés. C'est la seule édition des fables qui se fit sous les yeux de l'auteur. En 1667 et 1677 La Fontaine avait obtenu le privilège de l'édition de ses Fables, il en avait même obtenu un pour celles qui n'étaient pas encore publiées, et cela pour 15 ans ; les circonstances engagèrent La Fontaine à céder ses privilèges en 1693 à Thierry et Barbin car son premier libraire, Trabouillet, dont le fond avait été entièrement détruit dans un incendie, partagea son propre privilège avec Thierry et Barbin, et La Fontaine se vit dépossédé de la propriété littéraire de ses Fables quelques années avant sa mort, en 1695.

ANONYME [attribué primitivement à Mme de LA FAYETTE, puis à MICHALLET ou encore à Gatien COURTILZ DE SANDRAS.Cette édition originale, rare, est en 456 pages. Elle a été aussitôt contrefaite en Hollande. On l'a parfois attribué au polygraphe Gatien Courtilz de Sandras et même au libraire Estienne Michallet, auteur de l'épître. Quoi qu'il en soit, ce volume parait en même temps que La Princesse de Clèves (Barbin, 1678), chef-d'œuvre incontesté de la littérature de la fin du XVIIe siècle. Il est ainsi peu probable que Madame de La Fayette ait eu en cours simultanément deux entreprises éditoriales chez deux éditeurs différents.[livres-anciens-rares]. Marie-Madeleine Pioche de La Vergne, comtesse de La Fayette (baptized 18 March 1634 ?- 25 May 1693), better known as Madame de La Fayette, was a French writer, the author of La Princesse de Clèves, France's first historical novel and one of the earliest novels in literature.

Prima edizione di un rarissimo testo del principale architetto italiano del suo tempo. "Filippo Juvara o Juvarra (Messina, 7 marzo 1678 ?" Madrid, 31 gennaio 1736), architetto e scenografo, fu uno dei massimi esponenti del Barocco ed operò per lunghi anni a Torino come architetto di casa Savoia. La formazione del giovane Juvarra avvenne nella città natale, dove studiò architettura sui trattati, e lavorò come scenografo e argentiere. La sua prima opera architettonica fu il completamento, nel 1703, della Chiesa di San Gregorio, oggi scomparsa per la quale progettò la sistemazione interna comprendente la realizzazione del coro e dell'altare maggiore. Si trasferì a Roma nel 1704, dove fu allievo di Carlo e Francesco Fontana ed ottenne un clamoroso successo al concorso di disegno architettonico dell'Accademia di San Luca, che segnò l'inizio della sua attività indipendente. Impiegato all'inizio come architetto teatrale dal cardinale Pietro Ottoboni (nipote di Alessandro VIII e uno dei più importanti mecenati dell'epoca), Juvarra in questo periodo progettò alcuni edifici a Lucca, come il Palazzo della Repubblica e alcune ville del contado (villa Garzoni a Collodi e villa Mansi a Segromigno). È datato al 1732 il progetto della cupola della Basilica di Sant'Andrea a Mantova, a completamento di una delle opere più importanti di Leon Battista Alberti, ed i lavori successivi furono a Caravaggio, Bergamo e Belluno. I suoi principali lavori furono a Torino al servizio dei Savoia, segnatamente il salone centrale di Stupinigi, la basilica di Superga, la facciata della chiesa di S. Cristina in piazza San Carlo, le chiese di S. Filippo Neri e del Carmine, Sant'Andrea a Chieri, Palazzo Madama, etc. Gli ultimi anni furono trascorsi a Madrid.

        L'opere chirurgiche.

      Longhi, Bologna 1678 - Fabrizio, Girolamo [Fabricius ab Aquapendente]. (ca. 1533-1619). L'opere chirurgiche. . . . Folio. [12] 359 [1]pp. 9 engraved plates of orthopedic and surgical instruments, the first signed "Gio. Bettamini fece," the rest unsigned. Bologna: Gioseffo Longhi, 1678. 328 x 217 mm. Modern vellum, leather spine label. Inner margin of half-title expertly repaired, moderate browning and foxing. Very good copy. First Edition in Italian of Fabrizio's collected surgical works, first published in Latin in an unillustrated small-format edition in 1619. The plates illustrating this Italian edition first appeared in the 1647 folio Latin edition issued by Bolzetta; these were reproduced in later editions and translations. This edition of Fabrizio's collected surgical works contains Italian translations of the Pentateuchos cheirurgicum (first ed. 1592) and the Operationes chirurgicae, originally published in 1619. "The five books of the Pentateuchos are primarily devoted to the description of tumors, wounds, ulcers and fistulas, fractures, and dislocations; to these the Operationes adds a description of surgical instruments (some of which are illustrated) and classic surgical techniques, including a discussion of particular technical expedients devised by Fabricius himself and emphasizing some differences between Fabrizio's technique and that of others" (DSB). Of particular interest is Fabrizio's extensive discussion of dentistry and oral surgery, in which he describes techniques for various operations such as tartar removal, treatment of dental caries, the filing and extraction of teeth, tooth replacement, and the treatment of lockjaw and jaw dislocations. "One noteworthy item, which must be regarded as progress, is that we do not find a single word in [Fabrizio's] work about loosening teeth through cauterizing agents, the treatment which was so highly cultivated by the Arabs and so eagerly incorporated in the West" (Hoffmann-Axthelm, Hist. Dentistry, p. 143; also pp. 142 & 144). Fabrizio described several dental instruments, such as the "pelican" for tooth extraction, the crow's bill forceps for removing roots, the stork's bill forceps for removing incisors, the "dog's bite" forceps, a drill, a rasper, etc. These are not shown here, but were illustrated by Scultetus, pupil of Fabrizio's successor Spigelius, in his Armamentarium chirurgicum (1655 and numerous later eds.). Also of interest is the suit of orthopedic armor designed by Fabrizio and illustrated in the first two plates; this device "was in the shape of a man, [and] designed to combine in one apparatus the principles for all existing devices for the correction of orthopedic injuries and deformities" (DSB).

        Sammelband of 23 English Almanacs for the year 1678, bound by Samuel Mearne

      London & Cambridge: [Various printers], 1678. FIRST EDITIONS. Contemporary gilt-panelled red morocco, bound in the workshop of SAMUEL MEARNE (Royal Binder), crowned monogram of Charles II in each corner, spine gilt, horizontal vellum divider strips between each almanac. Top of spine rubbed, bottom damaged, cover corners and outer ends of raised bands worn; some toning, soiling, and minor stains. Preserved in a fitted green linen protective case. Octavo. Most almanacs printed in red and black, some with astrological text diagrams and woodcuts ALMANACS FROM THE "GLORIOUS REVOLUTION" -- an imposing volume of 23 Almanacs from the Year 1678, bound in the workshop of Samuel Mearne, Royal bookbinder to Charles II. Our binding is nearly identical to the 1683 Sammelband of Almanacs that is reproduced in the Folger's Fine and Historic Bookbindings catalogue (6:12). THIS VOLUME REPRESENTS NEARLY TWO-THIRDS OF THE RECORDED ALMANAC EDITIONS PRINTED IN ENGLAND FOR THE YEAR 1678, a signal year in British history in which Reports of a 'Popish Plot' circulated widely throughout the kingdom. Public fears of Catholic influence had surfaced during the reign of Charles II (reigned 1660-1685), when it became known that James, then known as the Duke of York, was a Catholic. * This huge conglomeration of early English almanacs is of great significance to scholars of the history of astronomy, astrology, medicine, politics, society, and literature. Astrology was the most systematic attempt to explain natural phenomena until the modern scientific revolution. The science of astrology was divided into two parts: natural (i.e. planetary influences on medicine and agriculture) and judicial (interpreting planetary influences in order to make predictions, usually political). The revival of English astrology is closely linked with the renaissance of mathematics. Astrologers were bringing to a wide public the ideas of the most advanced modern astonomers, in a popular and elementary form. * Almanacs sought to fill many roles, and contained data on fairs, weights and measures, postal services, tables of the kings, calendars (which were used to date fairs, law days and legal documents), weather forecasts, astronomical information relating to farming (with the best times to plow, sow, fell timber, etc.), astrological data supplied on medical problems (indicating proper times for surgery, blood-letting, etc.). Indeed, the "Zodiacal Man" was probably the ONLY work of reference available to a vast number of unqualified physicians. And finally, Almanacs contained an abundance of popular news, and popular literature, social comment, political speculation, and cheap sensationalism. It is well known that the first truly "popular" forms of literature were issued in Almanacs, such as these. * The present set -- which dates from the pivotal year of 1678 -- is exceptional in that it brilliantly documents the use of the Almanac as a vehicle of politics. In 1678 a clergyman named Titus Oates spread rumours of a ' Popish Plot' to kill Charles and place James on the throne. The public panic caused by this groundless assertion led to the ' Exclusion Bill' crisis of 1678-1681. The Exclusion Bill was a parliamentary Bill aimed at excluding James from the line of succession in favour of Charles II's illegitimate son, the Duke of Monmouth. It was passed by the House of Commons, thanks to the votes of the Whigs, in 1679 but it failed to pass through the House of Lords. * After the end of the Puritan Commonwealth, the restored king of England, Charles II married Mary, the daughter of his younger brother the Duke of York, to William in 1677. When Charles II died childless, the crown passed to the Duke, now James II. James was reported to be Catholic, and his wife certainly was. Anti-Catholicism was at a zenith, and members of the dissenting religions (the various Protestant churches, including the Puritans (modern Presbyterians), Independents (modern day Baptists), and Quakers, among many others had rebelled against a potential Catholic conversion previously. However, James II was tolerated because of his heir: Mary. She was Protestant, as was her husband. * On April 11, 1677 French troops defeated Prince William III; the year 1678 is further significant in that it marks the date of publication of John Bunyan's "The Pilgrim's Progress" (Part One) in which Christian follows the straight and narrow path to heaven; in this year Huygens proposed his wave theory of light.

[23] (of [24]) leaves; lacks A8 [A2197]. * BINDING: The binding can be confidently attributed to Samuel Mearne, the Royal Binder to Charles II: the crowned monogram C was Royal property, and moreover the massed tooling surrounding the inner panel is composed of unmistakable tools that appear on numerous Mearne bindings (such as BL 7f13 which is number 20 in Howard Nixon's "English Restoration Bookbindings"). We are unable to explain why such a huge number of 1678 Almanacs were ordered to be bound in one volume by the Royal Binder; the person who commissioned the binding was obviously closely associated with the court of Charles II. -- Subsequently in the library of the Occult collector Dianel Ruzo. * LITERATURE: See especially Bernard Capp, English Almanacs 1500-1800: Astrology and the Popular Press (Cornell, 1979). See also: William E. Burns, "Astrology and Politics in Seventeenth-Century England: James II and the Almanac Men" (in: The Seventeenth Century, Autumn 2005, 20:2).

This new company had the same trade area as the first. - Rare.

        A New Map of Africa from the Latest Observations.

      Double page engraved map, 500mm x 580mm (24" x 20"), hand colored in outline, title cartouche in lower left corner. Scattered short tears and chips in margins, some minor browning and offsetting, paper a little brittle; still attractive with a crisp and bright image. John Senex (1678-1740) was a well-respected English cartographer that was named geographer to Queen Anne. Around 1719 he published a small book of undecorated maps, but a couple of years later he went upscale and produced a large set of maps of various parts of the world in 1721. This is a somewhat scarce attractive map of the African continent, which includes a decorative cartouche that shows the pyramids, a Moor brandishing a sword, and a shield mounted by a dragon. The map has good detail, even of the interior, for the period, and according to the title, is based on the latest observations. Norwich 76. Van De Gohm 142.

        LETTERA INTORNO ALL'INVENZIONE DEGLI OCCHIALI. Scritta da Francesco Redi all'Illustrissimo Signor Paolo Falconieri.

      Per Francesco Onofri Stampatore Granducale 1678 Prima edizione. Cm.25,4x18,4. Pg.14 + 2 bianche. Legatura in cartoncino rigido marmorizzato. Allo specchio anteriore tassello in pelle bleu con il titolo dell'opera impresso in oro. Al frontespizio incisione calcografica con stemma della Crusca e il relativo motto "Il più bel fior ne coglie". All'inizio del testo stemma mediceo su rame. Esemplare di buon sapore. Francesco Redi (Arezzo, 1626 ? 1697), naturalista, medico e letterato, compì gli studi a Firenze e a Pisa, laureandosi in Filosofia e Medicina, per poi entrare al servizio dei Medici. Fu arciconsolo della Crusca dal 1678 al 1690, partecipando ai lavori della terza edizione del "Vocabolario" e fu tra i fondatori dell'"Accademia del Cimento". Nominato archiatra del Granduca Ferdinando II, lasciò vari importanti studi tanto letterarari quanto scientifici, e morì a Pisa nel 1697. "I suoi studi, fra i quali quelli intorno alla generazione spontanea e al veleno delle vipere, rivestono particolare importanza nella storia della scienza moderna, per la loro opera di demolizione di alcune teorie di stampo aristotelico a favore di un'attività sperimentale e per la loro applicazione in campo medico di una pratica terapeutica di impostazione ippocratica, costruita su regole di prevenzione e sull'uso di rimedi esclusivamente naturali e su precetti di vita equilibrata. Pubblicò un gran numero di ricerche naturalistiche, che destarono grande interesse in tutta Europa. Nel lavoro scientifico di Redi più ancora dei risultati ottenuti è essenziale il metodo usato, che gli assicura un posto di grande rilievo nella storia del metodo sperimentale" (da wikipedia).
