        Historia da Igreja do Japaõ, . . .Lisbon, Manoel da Sylva (vols. 1-2), Manoel Soares (vol. 3), 1749-1751. 3 volumes. 4to. With 5 folding engraved plates, 1 folding engraved map of Japan (28×42 cm) and 1 engraved illustration in the text. Contemporary tanned sheepkin, gold-tooled spines.

      Alt Japan Katalog 381; Cordier, Japonica, col. 401; for the map: Hubbard, Japoniae insulae 96. First and only Portuguese edition of Jean Crasset's Histoire de l'eglise du Japon (1679), the only edition in any language to include a map of Japan. Jean Crasset, a French Jesuit, based his work on François Solier's Histoire ecclesiastique des isles et royaumes du Japon (1627) and continued the account from 1624 to 1658. It gives an elaborate history of the Jesuit mission in Japan, beginning with Francis Xaver. The plates, by Miguel (Michel) le Bouteux, show Japanese costumes, the emperor's palace and an execution of Jesuit missionaries. Bouteux copied the map from a 1646 map of Japan titled "Japponiae nova" in Antonio Francisco Cardim's Fasciculus e Japponicis floribus , an illustrated history of Jesuit martyrdom in Japan. Manoel da Sylva published a Portuguese translation of Cardim's history in 1650, which most likely served as Bouteux's direct model. It includes a key locating 36 Jesuit colleges, residences, seminaries and churches.With bookplate and owner's entry. In very good condition, with only a tiny marginal worm hole in a couple leaves and a few leaves slightly browned. The bindings contain several small wormholes and the spines and corners are slightly damaged, but they are otherwise in good condition.

        Extra Notice. For San Francisco. Only 35 cts. per cubic foot on the Fastest Ship in the World. The Clipper Ship Andrew Jackson.

      The Andrew Jackson, a 1679 ton medium clipper, was built in Mystic in 1855. She was a fast sailer but, contrary to what this handbill would imply, set no records on any of her passages. On the date of the voyage advertised here - December 16, 1861 - her captain was Johnson. It is interesting to note that, just at this time, naval action in the Civil War was ramping up. The "Constitution" arrived at Ship Island at the mouth of the Mississippi River carrying the 26th Massachusetts Regiment to New Orleans, Great Britain began their embargo on US exports, and the naval blockade of the Confederate coast began to show results. This might explain the military theme of the handbill. However, despite the turmoil of the war, the text states that the Andrew Jackson might depart “by Christmas day, but certainly on or before the 1st of January.” The ship was sold to the British in 1863 and was lost in the Gaspar Straits in 1868. This handbill measures 9 3/4 x 6 1/2 inches and has a wonderful image of Jackson astride his horse, American flag behind, which also appeared on the 1862 clipper ship sailing card for the "Andrew Jackson." Interestingly, this iconic image was drawn (and signed) by George F. Nesbitt, who was also the printer of this handbill and of many clipper ship sailing cards. It is the only example of his artwork that I know of. Matted and framed, under glass. In Fine condition.

        1679 The Imitation of Christ, a Kempis. Binder - Padeloup, Louis XV Royal Binder

      Elzevir, Amsterdam 1679 - Bound by the bookbinder to King Louis XV, Padeloup, a beautiful 1679 Elzevir family edition of the seminal The Imitation of Christ (in Latin) by Thomas a Kempis, with Dutch Gilt endpapers. About the Binder- "Antoine Michel Padeloup was made binder to the king, Louis XV. (17I5—1748), in 1733, after Boyet’s death; he placed his mark on books belonging to Queen Maria Leczinska, the Dauphin, D'Hoym, Bonnier de la Mosson, and the Marquise de Pompadour. Padeloup is noted for good solid binding; the decorations he used, though poor in conception, are marvels of careful execution." (A History of the Art of Bookbinding, Brassington, 1884). Although this copy does not have a Padeloup ticket, an almost exactly matching board decoration is found on a Padeloup ticketed binding pictured in the 1935 publication, French Signed Bindings in the M. L. Schiff Collection (De Ricci, see example #13). About The Imitation of Christ - The Imitation of Christ (Latin: De Imitatione Christi) by Thomas à Kempis is a Christian devotional book. It was first composed in Latin ca. 1418–1427. It is a handbook for spiritual life arising from the Devotio Moderna movement, of which Kempis was a member. The Imitation is perhaps the most widely read Christian devotional work next to the Bible, and is regarded as a devotional and religious classic. Its popularity was immediate, and it was printed 745 times before 1650. Apart from the Bible, no book has been translated into more languages than the Imitation of Christ. The text is divided into four books, which provide detailed spiritual instructions. The book places a high level of emphasis on the devotion to the Eucharist as key element of spiritual life. About the Elzevir Family Printing - "The fame of the Elzevir editions rests chiefly on the works issued by the firm of Bonaventure and Abraham. Their Greek and Hebrew impressions are considered inferior to those of the Aldines and the Estiennes, but their small editions in 12mo, 16mo and 24mo, for elegance of design, neatness, clearness and regularity of type, and beauty of paper, cannot be surpassed. the works that gave their press its chief celebrity are their collection of French authors on history and politics in 24mo, known under the name of the Petites Républiques, and their series of Latin, French and Italian classics in small 12mo. (1912 Encyclopedia Britannica) About the Book - Measures 131 x 75 x 19 mm. AEG (All Edges Gilt). Red morocco. In-12 (size). Outer roll tool. Inner dentelle, of small tools, simulating a hanging curtain with pendant tassles. Spine with five ribs and six compartments. In each compartment a central flower surrounded by dots, and small sprays of flowers; title in gilt on black morocco in one compartment. Possible Provenance The similarly tooled work in the 1935 catalog mentioned earlier belonged to Virginie Riccoboni. There is an annotated reference on the title page of our copy which may either refer to the Virgin Mary’s Annunciation, or may be a play on words to refer to both persons (as Mary was never in Paris). Virginie Riccoboni was also referred to as Flaminia (her stage name). Dutch Gilt Endpapers Surprisingly the Dutch Gilt Endpapers have been researched, and are attributable to Joseph Friedrich Leopold. Condition See pictures. Some rubbing with a dot on the front board, and a few marks. Corners are bumped with paste boards slightly exposed. Some color loss at joints and edges. I think I can see some leather polish in the pores. Gilt edges have faded a little. Inside there is a pencil note on the back of the free front endpaper "4 p 8 s ½". Black spot above title page in upper margin. Annotations in top margin of leaves A2 and A3. Ink dot at fore edge of pages of 40-43. Occasional spots of foxing and soiling (finger smudges along edges) throughout, light. A very handsome small work, whose beauty shows through as a testament to both Padeloup and the Elzevir family. 907 [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Unlawfulnesse of Subjects, Taking up Armes Against Their.

      1679 - An Artful Defense of King Charles I Diggs, Dudley [1613-1643]. The Unlawfulness of Subjects Taking up Arms Against Their Soveraigne, In What Case Soever. Together with Answers to All Objections. A Work Very Seasonable for These Times, And May Serve as a Curb to the Treasonable Practices of Jesuits and Other State-Incendiaries. London: Printed for Peter Parker, 1679. [viii], 144, 155-170, 137-168 pp. Pagination irregular. Text complete. Octavo (6-1/2" x 4-1/4"). Recent period-style three-quarter calf over marbled boards, gilt-edged raised bands and lettering piece to spine. Moderate toning to text, faint dampstaining to a few leaves. Ex-library. Small inkstamp to title page and one other leaf. A handsome copy. $950. * Fifth and final edition. Derived in part from Bracton, Diggs's eloquent defense of the passive obedience of subjects contends that the king is under law as a moral proposition only, which precludes justified rebellion. It was originally published in 1644 as a defense of Charles II. This 1679 reissue was probably a response to the decision of Charles II to dissolve Parliament to prevent its impeachment of Lord Danby, who supervised the investigation into the "Popish Plot." Danby dismissed the plot as a fabrication, which angered Parliament. English Short-Title Catalogue R14579. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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.

        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. Lowndes, 1679. [x], 171, [1] pp. Octavo (6-1/2" x 4"). Contemporary speckled calf, blind rules to boards, raised bands to spine, marbled edges. 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. * 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.

      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 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. Lowndes, 1679. [x], 171, [1] pp. Octavo (6-1/2" x 4"). Contemporary speckled calf, blind rules to boards, raised bands to spine, marbled edges. 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.

      Paris, Vve Claude Thiboust, Pierre Esclassan, 1679. ____ Première édition. Une explication du monde et de sa formation à l'aide de la théorie des tourbillons, mais pour l'auteur, il est "impossible que le monde eut été formé de la manière que M. Descartes le prétend dans ses écrits." Mallement de Messange propose alors un nouveau système astronomique. A la fin on trouve un "Recueil de plusieurs pièces astronomiques données à divers temps par M. Mallement de Messange sur le nouveau système qu'il a inventé". 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. Illustré par un frontispice, une planche hors-texte montrant le système solaire et plusieurs gravures dans le texte dont une vue par la lunette à pleine page du Soleil et de la Lune. Très rare. Très bel exemplaire. *****. In-12. Collation : frontispice, (44), 260, (3) pp., 1 planche hors-texte.

Scholars, historians, and art historians of Versailles have long appreciated André Felibien's Description de la Grotte as a panegyric account of one of the most celebrated monuments of Louis XIV's first garden program for Versailles.1 The Grotto of Thetis, begun c. 1664 / 5 and completed c. 1674, was destroyed in 1682 in preparation for the extension of the northern wing of the château.

        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]

Next contreplat first and save some past. Binding skilfully restored.Two corrections handwritten in ink in the margins of the text on pages 117 and 122.partly buffers deleted from the library of the School of Paris and free dental hospital on the second and last cover pages. 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. Their decay; & What to do to avoid their deformity-Chap.VI: From the great utility of teeth, and for what purpose they were given to us-Chap.VII: From the beauty and goodness of teeth. Their species & deformity-Chap.VIII: The way that we can keep the teeth, and the regime that it must take-Chap.IX: The duration of Teeth-Chap.X: Diseases & accidents which appear in the second dentition; & Remedies that there must bring-Chap.XI: That it is not always about being shot Dents when one feels pain: And some popular errors on this topic-Chap.XII: From the third dentition-Chap.XIII: Gums and their accidents-Chap.XIV (Or XIIIa, according to copies): The perfection and deformities gumsThe Treaty of Martin adopts, as its name suggests, a dissertatif about: an analysis of the nature of the teeth developed a long reflection on the dangers that await in the life of their wearer, it tries to offer the reader a comprehensive view of the subject. 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.
