        Two Conferences: One Betwixt a Papist and a Jew, the Other Betwixt a Protestant and a Jew: In Two Letters from a Merchant in London, to his Correspondent in Amsterdam.

      Tho. Parkhurst, 1679. No Binding. Good. Contains conference between Papist and a Jew only. Missionary tract. Judaica. (2), 30pp. Richard Mayo (c1630-1695) was a clergyman and ejected minister. "Under the initials N. H., Mayo published 'A Conference betwixt a Papist and a Jew' (1673) and 'Two Conferences '(1677); the latter enjoyed at least six editions, that of 1754 bearing the title 'Two Disputations Concerning the Messiah'. In both Mayo argued that the Church of Rome, with its 'lying wonders and feigned miracles', gave a 'stab to the Christian Faith' by discrediting the best evidence that Jesus was the Messiah, the miracles he and his immediate followers performed". - ODNB Condition: Disbound. Some repairs to the guttering. Occasional tide mark. Small hole in the title page under the word 'his'. Some very light scattered foxing and occasional mark. Stab holes to the gutter.

        THE COMPLETE SEVEN PARTS - Philosophical collections, containing an account of the physical; anatomical, chymical, mechanical, astronomical, optical, or other mathematical and philosophical experiments and observations as have lately come to the publisher hands. . .

      London: [John Martyn], Moses Pitt, and Richard Chiswell, 1679. FIRST EDITION. With 7 engraved plates (6 folding). Bound together in contemporary marbled boards, rebacked; some top margins trimmed closely with occasional loss of page number only. First edition of the missing Philosophical collections, printed in a very small edition, and now exceptionally rare. The death of the Royal Society's secretary, Henry Oldenburg, in 1677 interrupted the publication of the Philosophical transactions. These scientific papers, edited by Hooke, were issued to fill the void in the Royal Society publication from the last number of the Philosophical transactions in 1679 until it resumed again in 1682/3. Hooke, who was also Curator of Experiments, contributed a couple of important papers, including An optical discourse, which proposed treatment for near-sightedness, and A mechanical discourse. . . . Other landmark papers include: Leeuwenhoek's announcement of the "discovery of spermatozoa"; Lana's "flying chariot"; Borelli's De motu musculorum; Tyson's Anatomy of a porpess (sic); and astronomical observations by Hevelius, Flamsteed, and Cassini on the eclipse of Jupiter by the moon in 1679 and 1681. In addition, discoveries by Moxon, Malpighi, Thomas Burnett, Edmund Halley, Bernoulli, and Leibniz are included.The plates illustrate, inter alia, Bernier's flying machine, Borelli's underwater breathing apparatus, and a new lamp invented by Robert Boyle. William Brigg's A new theory of vision, a discussion of the optic nerves, is accompanied by a plate illustrating a dissected eye; this detailed physiological study of vision motivated Newton to republish it in 1685 with his own introduction. According to Keynes, Robert Hooke, p. 48, the Philosophical collections must have circulated in much smaller numbers. All issues of this collection are scarce, and complete sets of seven numbers extremely uncommon.

"The Grotte representing the dwelling of the sea goddess Thetis, was designed by Charles Perrault and constructed in the north parterre of the chateau of Versailles...

        The Legitimacy Of Amicia, Daughter Of Hugh Cyveliok Earl of Chester...

      1679. Interesting for Its Discussion of Early Common-Law Authorities on Marriage Mainwaring, Sir Thomas [1623-1689]. The Legitimacy Of Amicia, Daughter Of Hugh Cyveliok Earl Of Chester, Clearly Proved. With Full Answers to All Objections that Have at Any Time been Made Against the Same. London: Printed for Sam.

Moderate rubbing to extremities, boards beginning to separate, but secured by cords. Title page printed in red and black. Moderate toning to text, small piece excised from rear endleaf, internally clean. $500. * Only edition. A sequel to the author's A Defence of Amicia. The 8-page preface gives a useful account of the endless pamphlet-war that following the publication of Defence in 1673, including an account of the controversy itself and the publications of Mainwaring's opponent, Peter Leicester. Amicia, the author's grandmother, was the wife of Ralph Mainwaring. Leicester, another descendant of Amicia, claimed that she was a bastard. This tract, like the others, is of legal interest for its discussion of the early common law authorities on marriage. Both authors had been students at Gray's Inn. The issue was eventually decided in Mainwaring's favor. OCLC locates 13 copies in North America, 1 in a law library (Ohio State). English Short-Title Catalogue R21678.

        Japan map - Durant after Tavernier.

      Coloured copper engraving assembled from two sheets by J. Durant after a drawing of Jean-Baptiste Tavernier, 1679. Plate size: 52 x 77 cm. The map occurs only in the first edition of Taverniers "Recueil de plusieurs relations". For later editions and/or translations the map was made smaller. It shows many unusual comments about Japan. It contains legends about the nature of the country, e.g. where gold is mined. Okasaki is said to have the most beautiful women. In Lake Biwa one can catch lots of salmon. Worthless youths are sent to an island off Kyushu, where they have to work etc. From a cartographic perspective the most important innovation is the inclusion of the route of the Dutch. At Firando it states that this where they had stayed initially. At Kisma ?? a different name for Deshima ?? it says that this is where the Dutch are. Also some Dutch ships are depicted. The map is handsomely framed using the highest standards (UV protective glass, acid free paper, wooden, i.e. strong and water resistant, reverse side).Jean-Baptiste Tavernier (1605 - 1689), was born in Paris, where his father Gabriel and uncle Melchior, protestants from Antwerp, pursued the profession of geographers and engravers. The conversations he heard in his father's house inspired Tavernier with an early desire to travel, and in his sixteenth year he had already visited England, the Low Countries and Germany. He was eager to visit the East; and he found the opportunity to join two French fathers, M. de Chapes and M. de St Liebau, who had received a mission to the Levant. In their company he reached Constantinople early in 1631, and then proceeded via Erivan to Persia. His farthest point in this first journey was Isfahan; he returned by Baghdad, Aleppo, Alexandretta, Malta and Italy, and was again in Paris in 1633.In September 1638 he began a second journey (1638-43) continuing to India as far as Agra and Golconda. His visit to the court of the Great Mogul and to the diamond mines was connected with the plans realised more fully in his later voyages, in which Tavernier travelled as a merchant of the highest rank, trading in costly jewels and other precious wares, and finding his chief customers among the greatest princes of the East. The second journey was followed by four others. In his third (1643-49) he went as far as Java, and returned by the Cape; but his relations with the Dutch proved not wholly satisfactory, and a long lawsuit on his return yielded but imperfect redress.In his last three journeys (1651-55, 1657-62, 1664-68) he did not proceed beyond India. The details of these voyages are often obscure; but they completed an extraordinary knowledge of the routes of overland Eastern trade, and brought the now famous merchant into close and friendly communication with the greatest Oriental potentates. They also secured for him a large fortune and great reputation at home. He was presented to Louis XIV, in whose service he had travelled sixty thousand leagues by land, received letters of nobility and in the following year purchased the barony of Aubonne, near Geneva. In 1662 he had married Madeleine Goisse, daughter of a Parisian jeweller.Thus settled in ease and affluence, Tavernier occupied himself, as it would seem at the desire of the king, in publishing the account of his journeys. He had neither the equipment nor the tastes of a scientific traveller, but in all that referred to commerce his knowledge was vast and could not fail to be of much public service. He set to produce ?Le Six Voyages de J. B. Tavernier?? in 1676 and supplemented it with the ?Recueil de Plusieurs Relations?? in 1679. This last contains an account of Japan, gathered from merchants and others. Reference: Walter 35 u. OAG 40; Campbell 27; Cortazzi p. 46/7 and pl. 71. Price: ?2.650,- (excl. VAT/BTW, incl. frame).

        Autograph note in the King's hand signed with initials "C.R." (1630-1685, King of Great Britain, restored 1660)

      1679 - to "My Ld of Bath", Peter MEWS, (1619-1706, Bishop of Bath & Wells, 1672-1684, of Winchester from 1684), "pray goe imediatly and acquainte my Ld Tres: with what I have commanded you", and on the other side an autograph note by the Bishop "I recd this the 24th March 1678/9 and the comand was that I should gett out of the way & not appear . This note is writt wth ye knigs [sic] own hand", on the back is Mews' autograph endorsement "The kings note, 24 March 1678/9", 2 sides 4to., no place, 24th March 1678 modern reckoning, 'My Lord Treasurer' is the Earl of Danby, (Sir Thomas Osborne, 1632-1712, Lord Treasurer, 1673-1679, later Marquess of Carmarthen and Duke of Leeds), at the most critical point of his career. Danby had built up a following based on his own skill in finance, the Church of England maintained by the King and the Bishops, a vigorous policy against dissenters and a fear, shared by the majority of the nation, of French influence. Unfortunately, in 1678, Danby tried to wreck Charles' secret arrangements with Louis XIV by making the sums asked by Charles exorbitant. Although Charles approved the letters, they were found and used against Danby by his rivals. The Commons resolved to impeach Danby and by March 1679 he was in an intolerable position. On the 13th March the King asked him to resign, offering a 'golden handshake' of £5000 a year pension and a marquessate. To prevent possibly unwelcome disclosures at a trial, Charles urged Danby into hiding.The present note strongly suggests that Bishop Mews was acting as go-between. Perhaps he asked Charles to keep Danby in office. As it was, next day, the 25th, the Bishop having, it seems, 'got out of the way', Danby sent his white staff of office from his refuge, and the single Treasurer was replaced by a commission on the 26th. Owing to moves and countermoves, Parliament never got as far as the impeachment, but from April 1679 to February 1684 Danby was in the Tower, till the judges allowed him bail, and in 1688 the Lords declared the impeachment had lapsed. Danby then played an important role in bringing over William of Orange. During the Civil War, Peter Mews was an Army Captain, wounded and taken prisoner at Naseby, afterwards a royalist agent on the continent. From 1667-1673 he was President of his old college, St John's, Oxford, after marrying his predecessor's daughter. In 1685, when Bishop of Winchester, on hearing of Monmouth's rebellion against James II, his campaigning instincts revived and he hastened west. At Sedgemoor, finding the Royal Artillery were at a distance, he harnessed his carriage horses to two cannon and brought them into range, contributing significantly to the victory, but not without getting wounded in the fighting. He afterwards pleaded mercy for the rebels and became known as 'Old Patch' from the covering on his cheek of a war-wound.

        Les Six Voyages en Turque, en Perse, et aux Indes. Pendant l'espace de quarante ans Premiere [and] Deuxieme Partie [together with] Recueil de plusieurs Relations Et Traitez singukliers & curieux de J. B. Tavernier

      [Amsterdam?:] suivant la copie imprimée à Paris, 1679 - 3 volumes, duodecimo (153 × 92 mm). Late 18th-century crimson straight-grain morocco, title gilt direct to spine, flat bands, triple fillet gilt panels to compartments, French fillet panels with rosette cornerpieces to boards, single rule edge-roll, all edges gilt, French blue and cream silk head- and tailbands, French blue silk page-markers, marbled endpapers, gilt palmette roll to turn-ins. Some very slight rubbing to the joints, corners, head- and tailcaps, light toning, occasional spotting, a few small marginal tears, no loss of text, map of Japan slightly torn on a fold, but overall an extremely pretty set. Vol. I with engraved half-title and 9 plates, all but one folding; vol. II with 25 plates, of which 19 are folding, illustration to the text; Receuil with portrait frontispiece and 8 folding plates, double-folding map of Japan and folding map of Tonkin. (Copies have been recorded recently with 42, 44, and 45 plates, this copy has all of those listed in the plate lists, and a considerable number in addition, where multiple images on the same subject are indicated.) Book labels of Sefik E. Atabey to the front pastedowns. First small format edition, following the quarto firsts of Les Six Voyages (1676) and Recueil (1678); a beautifully presented set of this highly desirable edition of the voyages of this "most famous among the 'business travellers'" (Speake). Tavernier made six trips to Asia in search of fine jewels – the 112 carat diamond that he purchased at Golconda became Louis XIV's famous French Blue, and was later re-cut to reappear as the notorious Hope Diamond – and his records of business practices, commodities and currencies must have been carefully studied by all who were planning expeditions to the East. However, he was also a man of wide ranging interests and keen observation, studying the history, politics, religions and cultures of the countries that he visited, and giving excellent accounts of, among other things, the practices of Hinduism; the history of the Moghul empire; and the workings of the Ottoman court: "He has a straightforward style and makes no attempt to generalize or philosophize." Tavernier's was a direct and readable record, and was understandably extremely popular. The text is enhanced by the plates, which are crisply cut and full of detail, covering all aspects of his narrative, including views of Baghdad and Kandahar; Tavernier's passeport, or firman, from Shah 'Abbas II; a royal funeral procession in Tonkin; precious stones acquired in India; a fakir; the currencies of India, Persia and Japan; an Indian katara, or push dagger; and the splendid map of Japan showing the Stations of the Tokaido. Atabey 1201 (this copy, wrongly recorded as having 42 rather than 44 plates; binding illustrated); Brunet V, 681; Howgego, I, T14; Weber II, 277; this edition not in Blackmer.

        Japan map - Durant after Tavernier.

      Coloured copper engraving assembled from two sheets by J. Durant after a drawing of Jean-Baptiste Tavernier, 1679. Plate size: 52 x 77 cm. The map occurs only in the first edition of Taverniers "Recueil de plusieurs relations". For later editions and/or translations the map was made smaller. It shows many unusual comments about Japan. It contains legends about the nature of the country, e.g. where gold is mined. Okasaki is said to have the most beautiful women. In Lake Biwa one can catch lots of salmon. Worthless youths are sent to an island off Kyushu, where they have to work etc. From a cartographic perspective the most important innovation is the inclusion of the route of the Dutch. At Firando it states that this where they had stayed initially. At Kisma ?? a different name for Deshima ?? it says that this is where the Dutch are. Also some Dutch ships are depicted. The map is handsomely framed using the highest standards (UV protective glass, acid free paper, wooden, i.e. strong and water resistant, reverse side).Jean-Baptiste Tavernier (1605 - 1689), was born in Paris, where his father Gabriel and uncle Melchior, protestants from Antwerp, pursued the profession of geographers and engravers. The conversations he heard in his father's house inspired Tavernier with an early desire to travel, and in his sixteenth year he had already visited England, the Low Countries and Germany. He was eager to visit the East; and he found the opportunity to join two French fathers, M. de Chapes and M. de St Liebau, who had received a mission to the Levant. In their company he reached Constantinople early in 1631, and then proceeded via Erivan to Persia. His farthest point in this first journey was Isfahan; he returned by Baghdad, Aleppo, Alexandretta, Malta and Italy, and was again in Paris in 1633.In September 1638 he began a second journey (1638-43) continuing to India as far as Agra and Golconda. His visit to the court of the Great Mogul and to the diamond mines was connected with the plans realised more fully in his later voyages, in which Tavernier travelled as a merchant of the highest rank, trading in costly jewels and other precious wares, and finding his chief customers among the greatest princes of the East. The second journey was followed by four others. In his third (1643-49) he went as far as Java, and returned by the Cape; but his relations with the Dutch proved not wholly satisfactory, and a long lawsuit on his return yielded but imperfect redress.In his last three journeys (1651-55, 1657-62, 1664-68) he did not proceed beyond India. The details of these voyages are often obscure; but they completed an extraordinary knowledge of the routes of overland Eastern trade, and brought the now famous merchant into close and friendly communication with the greatest Oriental potentates. They also secured for him a large fortune and great reputation at home. He was presented to Louis XIV, in whose service he had travelled sixty thousand leagues by land, received letters of nobility and in the following year purchased the barony of Aubonne, near Geneva. In 1662 he had married Madeleine Goisse, daughter of a Parisian jeweller.Thus settled in ease and affluence, Tavernier occupied himself, as it would seem at the desire of the king, in publishing the account of his journeys. He had neither the equipment nor the tastes of a scientific traveller, but in all that referred to commerce his knowledge was vast and could not fail to be of much public service. He set to produce ?Le Six Voyages de J. B. Tavernier?' in 1676 and supplemented it with the ?Recueil de Plusieurs Relations?' in 1679. This last contains an account of Japan, gathered from merchants and others. Reference: Walter 35 u. OAG 40; Campbell 27; Cortazzi p. 46/7 and pl. 71. Price: ?2.650,- (excl. VAT/BTW, incl. frame).

        Nouvelle méthode pour apprendre à tracer facilement les cadrans solaires sur toutes sortes du surfaces planes

      Paris, Estienne Michallet, 1679. 1679, 1679, in-12, (12), 66, (54) pages et 4 planches, veau du début du XVIIIe siècle, triple filet doré d'encadrement sur les plats, dos à 5 nerfs orné, tranches rouges, signet, Première édition, rare, de l'un des premiers textes témoignant de l'activité parisienne du célèbre fabricant anglais Michael Butterfield, tenant boutique à Paris à l'enseigne "Aux Armes d'Angleterre", rue Neuve-des-Fossés. En effet, alors qu'une première partie, assez classique, est consacrée à la manière de tracer avec justesse les cadrans solaires sur les surfaces planes, puis sur toutes sortes de surfaces, à deux reprises, l'auteur (anonyme) s'étend plus longuement sur l'usage d'instruments spéciaux : tout d'abord, des pages 44 et 48, à propos d'une machine propre à poser les axes des cadrans, puis, de la page 52 à 66, au sujet d'un "cadran cyclique fort curieux" (un cadran diptyque solaire et lunaire ?). Cette insistance sur deux instruments spécifiques (qui sont les seuls à bénéficier d'un sous-paragraphe explicitement nommé "Usage") se comprend à la toute fin de l'oeuvre, où on lit l'avertissement publicitaire suivant : "Le Sieur Butterfield fabricateur des instrumens de Mathematiques au Fauxbourg S. Germain, rue neuve des Fossés, Aux Armes d'Angleterre, fait fort proprement le Cadran cyclique, la règle de la Figure fondamentale, et la machine propre à poser les Axes des Cadrans." Ainsi, l'ouvrage de l'inconnu Monsieur C... sert de publicité et de manuel d'utilisation pour deux instruments construits par Michael Butterfield, installé depuis seulement 1677 à Paris et qui fit paraitre la même année que le présent ouvrage sur les cadrans (1679), une brochure sur un microscope simple, de type Huygens. Les 54 dernières pages constituent une longue table des latitudes et longitudes des villes et lieux les plus remarquables du Monde. Les 4 planches illustrent les différents types de cadrans et le cadran cyclique de Butterfield. Bel exemplaire

        Decree granting a salary to Johan Theodor, Baron of Friesheim, as chief bailiff and state prosecutor in 's-Hertogenbosch].The Hague, 2 April 1681. Folio (31.5 x 20.5 cm). Written in brown ink on paper, with the armorial seal of William of Orange stamped on a decorative paper cut-out over red wax.

      - Decree signed by William of Orange, Stadholder of The Netherlands and future King William III of England, tranferring to Johan Diederik (or Theodo(o)r), 2nd Baron of Friesheim, recently appointed chief bailiff and state prosecutor in the city of 's-Hertogenbosch, all sources of income that had been previously bestowed on his predecessor, Johan Ruse, in total 330 guilders per year plus further unspecified emoluments. The document notes that Friesheim had been appointed to succeed Ruse on 5 October 1679. It is signed by William of Orange ("Guillaume de Orange") and Johan Pesters, a leading figure in William's entourage. Johan Ruse may have been the former Burgomaster of Maasstricht of that name, also known as Johannes Rusius, who was still living in 1668.In his teens or early twenties Johan Diederik had served as William of Orange's page and became a captain in the Dutch army in 1666. He was to serve many years under William of Orange, rising to the rank of Major General in 1701 and General in 1718. He gradually shifted into civilian life beginning in 1709 and ended his career as Governor of 's-Hertogenbosch, where he died in 1733. The earlier civilian post documented in the present decree is not recorded in the standard biographies, which note that little is known about Friesheim, in spite of his distinguished career and decorations for his military achievements under King William III.The document and complete paper and wax seal in very good condition, formerly folded and with some small holes in the blank second leaf where folds cross.

        The enjoyment.

      London, printed in the year, 1679 - Provenance Bute Collection; John Brett-Smith. According to a pencilled note by Brett-Smith "ex Bute vol." First edition. Wing B5336A (Traditionally Wing R1742, entry cancelled). (L, C, LG; MH, TU. None added in ESTC). One of two issues; this one listed first in Wing. The other issue (Wing B5336B CN: ESTC adds TU) does not give London as the place of printing or the date but gives the bookseller's address, "to be sold at the Judges's Head." This celebrated erotic poem has traditionally been attributed to the Earl of Rochester, (e.g. by Poems on Affairs of State [1697], many MSS, and latterly by Wing, New Wing, and NUC), but is now attributed to John Sheffield, Earl of Mulgrave (later Marquis of Normanby and Duke of Buckingham). Rochester's The Imperfect Enjoyment is clearly based upon this frankly sentimental narrative of "a night of pleasure", midnight to dawn. The publishers of this very rare separatim, in a note above the imprint, hint broadly that it is by Rochester: "These verses amongst others, being ready to be Publis'd and not possibly to be stop'd in this Liberty of the Press; a friend of the Authors thought it necessary to print them single by the Original paper, to prevent the errours which will be found in that which is coming out, which is falsely transcrib'd from a surreptitious Copy." The allusion is certainly to the pirated Poems on Several Occasions by Rochester (among others) which began its long and corrupt history of publication in 1680, but which in fact omits this poem. When it was reprinted in Mulgrave's Poems in Several Occasions (1717), edited by Pope, the copy chosen was this 1679 text "which. may argue that it is authoritative" (Vieth). The night of pleasure begins with a little teasing: "My Eyes transported too with Amrous rage, / Seem fierce with expectation to engage: / But fast she holds my hands, and close her thighs, / And what she longs to do, with frownes denies." But battle, once properly joined, is renewed again and again until dawn when "for want of further force/ From deeds, alas, we fall into discourse! and the exhausted lovers are "like Fish left gasping on the shore." A fine copy of a very rare poem which seldom appears on the market. The last we know of in a catalogue appeared in Quaritch's Catalogue 1066, Winter 1986; a copy with the blank corner torn from the first leaf ($2,500). [Attributes: First Edition]

Ex-dono of dentist pen partly cleared on the third cover page.The book, divided into fourteen chapters, offers a detailed study of the teeth:-Chap.I: Nature Teeth. This they differ from other bone and sensitivity-Chap.II: Time & the way the teeth are born. Their numbers & names given to them-Chap.III: Diseases of teeth when they are born; & How to prevent them-Chap.IV: Why children are born without Teeth; & Why they have no roots-Chap.V: From the fall of teeth in childhood.

From the warning, the author stresses the need for the project: "This Treaty without first appear a little considerable doubt in many people, the greatest part Estant defendants what the ancient and modern authors who have written infirmities of body human, spoke only superficially with regard to teeth. However, they are of greater consequence that we can not imagine themselves as they produce deadly accidents [...]. " Besides the surgical aspect addressed in this book (which is all the more notable that Martin has no training in this area), it offers "hygienic" tips on how to maintain the teeth to prevent pathological development " some use grape Damascus apply on Dent marrow Hare is good, the blood of the creste a Cocq, the woodlice, legs hanging Moles of the child's neck [...] " . Speaking at the pace fairly grotesque - or at least worthy of wacky healers - probably refer to a Spanish book that Martin was greatly inspired for his dissertation, the short Coloquio compendioso y Francisco Martinez, published in 1557 in Spain. So chemist in the house of the Prince of Conde, Bartholomew Martin (1629-1682), whose real name Martin Bernardin, discovers the book to the unknown time in France. In this text, which is part of the largest structures in Europe to deal only with dentistry, Martinez takes a comic angle by staging the villagers discussing their dental problems on the town square. Martin, in his essay maintains this farcical tone since it does not hesitate to borrow his Spanish counterpart ideas and advice, sometimes whole passages. This choice, in surprising appearance for medical and methodical text, the result of completeness will on the part of the author, who wishes to review the remedies USIT in his time. Anyway, the study of Martin remains fundamental to the extent that this is the second French book devoted exclusively to dentistry after the search of the true anathomie teeth, nature and properties of hereunto of urban Hémard, published in 1582. the works of Hémard and urban were also a fundamental source of inspiration for Pierre Fauchard who in 1728 brought out the dentist Treaty or teeth that remains today one of the main references in the field of dental surgery.Rare copy of first edition of a founder of the French text dentistry.

Tavernier ? 3 volumes, duodecimo (153 × 92 mm). Late eighteenth-century crimson straight-grained morocco, title gilt direct to the spine, flat bands, triple fillet gilt panels to the compartments, French fillet panels with rosette corner-pieces to the boards, single rule edge-roll, all edges gilt, French blue and cream silk head- and tail-bands, French blue silk page-markers, marbled endpapers, gilt palmette roll to the turn-ins.

Book labels of Sefik E. Atabey to the front pastedowns. Some very slight rubbing to the joints, corners, head- and tailcaps, light toning, occasional spotting, a few small marginal tears, no loss of text, map of Japan slightly torn on a fold, but overall an extremely pretty set. First small format edition, following the quarto firsts of Les Six Voyages (1676) and Recueil (1678). Beautifully presented set of this highly desirable edition of the voyages of this "most famous among the 'business travellers'" (Speake). Tavernier made six trips to Asia in search of fine jewels - the 112 carat diamond that he purchased at Golconda became Louis XIV's famous French Blue, and was later re-cut to reappear as the notorious Hope Diamond - and his records of business practices, commodities and currencies must have been carefully studied by all who were planning expeditions to the East. However, he was also a man of wide ranging interests and keen observation, studying the history, politics, religions and cultures of the countries that he visited, and giving excellent accounts of, among other things, the practices of Hinduism; the history of the Moghul empire; and the workings of the Ottoman court: "He has a straightforward style and makes no attempt to generalize or philosophize." Tavernier's was a direct and readable record, and was understandably extremely popular. Much enhanced by the plates, which are crisply cut and full of detail, covering all aspects of his narrative, including views of Baghdad and Kandahar; Tavernier's passeport, or firman, from shah Abbas II; a royal funeral procession in Tonkin; precious stones acquired in India; a fakir; the currency of India, Persia and Japan; an Indian katara, or push dagger; and the splendid map of Japan showing the Stations of the Tokaido.

Il y reproduit des lettres qui lui ont été adressées par des savants sur son système du monde qui montre que sa théorie a été vivement débattue dans la communauté scientifique de son temps : "On continue à parler ici de votre système dans toutes les compagnies d'habiles gens." Exemplaire de Louis de Courcillon, abbé de Dangeau, "camérier d'honneur du pape, lecteur de la Chambre du roy", à qui l'ouvrage est dédié. Au dessus de la dédicace se trouve un joli bandeau gravé avec les armes de Dangeau. Claude Mallement de Message (Beaune, 1653-1723), entré à l'Oratoire en 1674, enseignait la philosophie et les sciences au collège du Plessis.

        Turris Babel, sive archontologia

      frontispice, [7] feuillets et Amstellodami, ex officina Janssonio-Waesbergiana, 1679, in-folio, frontispice, [7] feuillets et 219-[13] pages, 12 planches hors texte, vélin rigide de l'époque, motif central estampé à froid sur les plats, Signatures : *-**4 ; A-Z4 ; Aa-Ff4. Édition originale de ce très beau livre sur la Tour de Babel, les anciennes civilisations et les langues. Il contient, outre le frontispice gravé par J. Van Munnichuysen d'après Gérard de Lairesse, 12 planches en taille-douce, 9 étant doubles ou dépliantes, ainsi que des figures gravées sur cuivre dans le texte (dont 5 à pleine page), 3 tableaux (dont 1 sur cuivre) et enfin de plusieurs figures sur bois. Cet ouvrage, "peut-être le plus curieux (...) de ce prodigieux savant" (Caillet), est célèbre pour son illustration, mise en oeuvre par Conrad Decker d'après les indications de Kircher : outre la grande planche qui représente la Tour de Babel dans un style redevable à Bruegel l'Ancien, il figure les vues de Babylone et de Ninive, le palais et l'arc de Sémiramis, les pyramides d'Égypte, le labyrinthe de Thèbes, le colosse de Rhodes, etc, ainsi que la "Théologie hermétique" ("Speculum geneatheologicum sive theotechnia hermetica"), étrange diagramme à pleine page démontrant la manière dont les forces actives ou passives du Soleil et de la Lune agissent sur chaque divinité. Kircher commença l'écriture de sa Turris Babel près d'une dizaine d'années avant sa publication ; il forme, avec l'Arca Noë (1673), un diptyque "constituant une tentative pour retracer toute la préhistoire de l'humanité" (Godwin). Bon exemplaire, en reliure hollandaise de l'époque. Petites taches d'encre anciennes sur les plats, légères salissures sur le frontispice, quelques réparations à certaines planches, une planche un peu déchirée, sans perte. De Baecker & Sommervogel IV, colonne 1069 (n° 36). Caillet II, 5795. Dorbon, n° 2391. Godwin, Athanasius Kircher, un homme de la Renaissance à la quête du savoir perdu, p. 34 et suiv.

Schweiger I, 101. Graesse II, 401. Brunet II, 730. Der Pergamentband der Zeit mit leichten Alters- und Gebrauchsspuren, etwas berieben und fleckig, die unteren Ecken leicht bestoßen. Das vordere Innengelenk angebrochen, einige Seiten mit Knicken und Eselsohren, stellenweise minimal gebräunt. Auf dem vorderen fliegenden Vorsatz recto ein nahezu zeitgenössischer Vorbesitzereintrag, durch Abriß teils fragmentarisch: ". Jacobi Meieri Anno 1705 Ultraj.[ectus = Utrecht] .". Mit acht gestochenen, teils mehrfach gefalteten Karten im Text. Mehrere Seiten irrtümlich falsch paginiert, jedoch - bis auf das teilweise abgerissene Titelblatt - absolut vollständig. Wir legen zwei Kopien bei, die den fehlenden Text ergänzen. Dionysios von Alexandria, auch Dionysios Periegetes (= "Herumführer") schuf mit seiner Weltbeschreibung zu Anfang des 2. Jahrhunderts nach Christus (um 124) ein Werk, das bis ins Mittelalter als Lehrbuch der Schulgeographie diente. Der Herausgeber William Hill war ein Professor in Oxford und lebte von 1619 bis 1667. Neben der Klärung vieler Unstimmigkeiten im klassischen Text, die die alte Geographie und Geschichte betreffen, werden in einem Anhang auch Geschichte und Geographie der Neuen Welt vorgestellt, alles verdeutlicht durch die beigebundenen Karten. Die Weltkarte zeigt Kalifornien noch zeitbedingt als Insel.

Opera et studio Monachorum Ordinis S. Benedicti è Congregatione S. Mauri. 12 Teile (Bd 3 hat 2 Teile) in 11 Bänden, gebunden in 8 Bänden.

      Zus. ca. 20000 S.. Mit Frontispiz (Porträt) in Bd 11, 12 Titelvignetten, 12 gestochenen Kopfleisten, 12 gestochenen Initialen. Gr.-Folio (414 x 266 mm). Marmorierte Kalbslederbände d. Z. auf 6 Bünden, mit Rückentitel und reicher -vergoldung. Die vorliegende kritische Mauriner-Ausgabe gilt bis heute als vorbildlich, auch und vor allem wegen des 11. Bandes: "Der 11. Bd bringt die v. Mabillon verfaßte Praefatio generalis (...), dann ein ausführl. Leben des hl. A. auf Grund der Studien v. Tillemont, sowie ausgezeichnete Indices über die echten u. über die (...) unechten Schriften." (Buchberger: Kirchl. Handlexikon. S., 411f). Laut Aussage des Vorbesitzers erlitt die Ausgabe in den letzten 50 Jahren einen Wasserschaden, dessen Spuren im Papier noch deutlich zu sehen sind so sind beinahe alle Bände im unteren Blattdrittel wasserrandig, gelegentlich auch schwach wellig. Die Einbände waren ebenfalls betroffen auch hier zeigen sich Wasserflecken wenn es Schäden an der Bindung gab, wurde diese auf höchst professionelle Weise und kaum sichtbar ausgebessert ansonsten Einbände kaum berieben beziehungsweise mit geringen Kratzspuren. 2 Bände haben ein etwas abweichendes Rückendekor, sind einige Millimeter höher und haben eine lateinische Bandzählung am Rücken der 11. Band (Register und Vita) ist ca. 2,5 cm höher als die anderen. Die Bände 1-2 sind in 2. Auflage (zuerst 1679) von 1689. Vgl. Brunet I, 557. Zögern Sie bitte nicht, wenn Sie Fragen haben oder z. B. Bilder sehen möchten. Wegen des kolossalen Formats und Gewichts bevorzugt der Antiquar die Selbstabholung des Werks durch den Kunden, welcher im Gegenzug einen Rabatt von 100,- als Anerkennung seiner Mühen erhält wünscht der Kunde jedoch eine Lieferung im Versand, muß ich entgegen meiner sonstigen Gepflogenheiten für meine Mühen des Versendens 50,- zusätzlich berechnen. Durch seine Bestellung akzeptiert der Kunde diese Bedingungen.
