        Divers Desseins de figures

      1679. LE CLERC, Sebastien. Divers Desseins de Figures Dedies A Monsieur Colbert D'Ormoy. Engraved title and 29 numbered engraved plates. Square 8vo., 140 x 132 mm, bound in later French dark green morocco, geometric gilt-ruled design on covers 'a la Bozarien' ca. 1800. Paris: Langlois, [ca. 1679]. |~||~||~||~| First Edition, first impressions, of this petit artist's drawing manual. This "pedagogic" suite of 30 engraved plates of figures in motion was dedicated by Le Clerc to one of his noble pupils, the Marquis Jules-Armand Colbert d'Ormoy (1663-1704), the fourth son of Jean-Baptiste Colbert. Working under the influence of Callot, Le Clerc designed these illustrations with two depictions of the same figure on one engraved plate; one figure created in outline only, the same figure flushed out with contours and sculptural shading to create a more 3D character in motion. These little scenes of everyday life focus on the costumes of the French working classes during the middle of the seventeenth century. Sébastien Le Clerc the elder (1637-1714) was one of the greatest and most prolific illustrators in Baroque France, executing a wide range of important works under the patronage of Louis XIV. The engravings are in fine state with large margins. Binding with corners ever-so-slightly bumped, else a very fine copy. PROVENANCE: Marlborough Books, description laid-in, sold 1982; Peter A.

        Coelum sephiroticum Hebraeorum, per portas intelligentiae, Moysi revelatas. .. medicinae, chymiae, astronomiae, astrologiae, botanicae, zoologiae KABBALIC INTERPRETATION OF THE UNIVERSE AND ITS CREATION

      Mainz: Ludovie Bourgeat, 1679 With large printer?'s device on title, 1 full page plate, 19 text engravings, and ornate woodcut head- and tailpieces. Recently bound in vellum using a an old Hebrew manuscript with a few obvious repairs; interior very clean with the occasional phrase underlined in pencil. First edition of this wonderful treatise on natural philosophy based upon an occult interpretation of the seven days of creation. According to Thorndike, this work purports ?"to derive new principles of medicine, chemistry, astronomy, astrology, botany, zoology, anthropology and other sciences from the most ancient Hebraic truth through the gates of intelligence revealed to Moses.?" Steeb (fl. 1672-1680) was influenced by the works of Pythagoras, Paracelsus, and Kircher, and Pico della Mirandola, and borrowed elements of Kabbalic thought for his interpretation of the universe and its creation. The author?'s interest in celestial spheres, the creation of the earth, and the synthesis of several branches of science, religion, and the occult necessitated the invention of an array of unusual pseudoscientific diagrams to elucidate the text of his ambitious treatise. These diagrams are mostly circular (with octagonal plate marks) and many of them incorporate beautiful celestial imagery into their programs in addition to Latin, Greek, Hebrew, and various astrological and alchemical symbols. One interesting observation is Steeb?'s perspective on salt, which has played a role in alchemy as the physical ?"body?" which survives death to reinaugurate new life. He remarks that ?"sal sit ultimum in corruptione, sed & primum in generatione?" (salt is the last in corruption and the first in generation). The author also makes reference to Atlantis and America in this work. A very fine copy of this unusual and highly creative treatise.

        De l'Excellence des hommes contre l'egalite des sexes.

      Paris, Antoine Dezallier, 1679.. In-12, plein veau de l'epoque, dos a nerfs guilloches or, orne de compartiments fleuronnes, tranches mouchetees rouges (mors leg. frottes), 329, (5) p. de privilege. Seconde edition officielle parue quatre ans apres l'originale. Le titre est pris par anti-phrase. "Si le titre pourrait faire croire que l'auteur de 'L'Egalite des deux sexes' se retracte, ce n'est qu'un approfondissement tres fort de sa premiere these. Les arguments, sur lesquels le sexe masculin pretend fonder cette pretendue excellence y sont bien exposes, mais c'est pour etre demolis chacun a leur tour" (G. Reynier, 'La femme au XVIIe', p. 240). "Malgre les precautions qu'il prend pour eviter la censure, l'auteur evoque nettement l'idee d'un pacte social entre le pouvoir et le peuple (...). Ainsi le feminisme de Poullain s'ouvre-t-il au probleme de l'inegalite sociale" (Albistur & Armogathe, 'Feminisme francais', p. 166). Sur la modernite et la radicalite du feminisme de cette oeuvre, cf. Timmermans, 'Acces des femmes a la culture', p. 776 sq. (Alcover, p 26, i. Gay, I, 798. Haag, VIII, 308).

Traces of his work are to be found in later grammarians and lexicographers. (NP Philoxenus 8). Cyrillus, 5th century AD. His Glosses were used by Hesychius, Photius and in the Suda. (NP Kyrillos 5 and 6). Charles Labbé, 1582-1657, was a parliamentary barrister of Paris, who published, with the help of J. Scaliger Glosses on Greek law (1607), and prepared an edition of the Glossaries of 'Cyril and Philoxenus', which was published after his death by Du Cange (1679). (Sandys 2,287). The first part of this work contains Greek-Latin glosses, the second Latin-Greek glosses, followed by emendations; This work was reprinted in London, 1817, etc. as an appendage to the new edition of Stephanus's Thesaurus. Ad 2: Aegidius Bucherius (Gilles Boucher), 1576-1665, was a French Jesuit and chronological scholar. His 'De Doctrina Temporum' of 1634 published for the first time a number of important medieval chronological documents, and other works on the computation of the date of Easter (the cycle of Victorius of Aquitaine). Victorius had written ca. 450 a 'Cursus Paschalis', in which he introduced a more precise computation of Easter. During the Synode of Orléans of 541 Victorius' computations were accepted by the church. (LMA 8,1629/30). Labbaeus tells us in the praefatio that he got the MS with the 'Cursus Paschalis' from his fellow Jesuit Jacobus Sirmundus during a visit to Paris in 1615. The editio princeps of and the commentary on the 'Cursus Paschalis' and of the other late antique and early medieval computistical texts laid together with the work of Joseph Justus Scaliger (1579 and 1606) and that of Dionysius Petavius (1627) the foundations of the science of 'Computus', the science of time-reckoning, and of 'Computus ecclesiasticus', the method to regulate the calender of the church, especially the date of Easter) (Collation: Ad 1: pi-1; A - 2C-4; chi-1, A - 2A-4, 2B-2, 2C - 2H-4; a - e-4.

        The History of The Civil Wars of England 1640, To 1660

      Not Stated, London, 1679, Hardcover, Book Condition: Fair, Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket, 1st EditionSize: 16mo - over 5" - 6" tall, The text of this rebound copy is quite rough in all respects, though striking me as legible with minimal chipping. Author is given as "T. H." A lengthy summary of the texts condition will follow. It seems likely that the first section (title page thru @ page 47) of text experienced color bleed brown staining at margin edges in it's original binding. The title page is much affected, those following less so. I will be photographing the title page for the books listing. Mercifully the darkening is confined to the margins in the main. The collector had made small light penciled notes on the title page as was his habit. Surely they can erase but I will not be doing so, as this should, I think, be done by an Archivist. Additionally the collector noted the Wing and M & H catalog numbers on the first, replaced endsheet. Some corrected (and uncorrected) dog earing is noted, not a great deal. The edges of the text are rather rounded at the bottom.The end sheets and pastedowns were replaced with beige toned stock. Not a perfect match for the original foxed and age darkened matter, but well chosen. The last printed sheet has a small, ancient penned note at it's bottom, a darkened spot, and tiny chips out of it's margin. I have not had the chance to get an archivists opinion as to whether the text edges were cropped for the restoration process, but I suspect not. The edges are quite dark, the header titling seems to vary in location from 1/4" down to 1/2" down from page top. Fore edge may have had marbling but age has obscured it, it and the bottom are lighter than the top, splotchier, the top edge is almost a walnut color and more even. The boards are done in sturdy, modern brown cloth with a black and gilt spine label. Book is 6 5/8 X 4 3/8" 286 pages, gathered in 8 leaf signatures, J signature not present, intentionally so as the pagination is correct throughout. With the book we will tender the collectors notes showing "First edition. Wing H-2239 and Macdonald and Hargreaves 86."

        A True Narrative of the Horrid Plot and Conspiracy of the Popish Party

      Parkhurst & Cockerill, London, 1679, Full-Leather, Book Condition: Fair-, Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket, Presume 1st, UKSize: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall, An extremely difficult book to describe, we hope to reconcile any deficiency of information on our part with a thorough description. Copious notes came to us with this book. First listed note references Wing 0-59, bound with four others in the binding of William Douglas , First Duke of Queensberry, circa 1639 - 1695. Possible Britwell Court marking, unable to locate a sale. Balance of title of O-59 as follows, "Against the Life of His Sacred Majesty, the Government, and the Protestant Religion: With a List of such Noblemen, Gentleman, and Others, as were the Conspirators: and the Head-Officers both Civil and Military that were to Effect it." The four other titles which are bound together in this volume include number S4127 "The Narrative of Mr. John Smith;"- number (J)5561(sic) "The Narrative of Robert Jenison;"- number P3177 "A True Narrative and Discovery" by Prance- B1677 "A Narrative and impartial Discovery of the Horrid Plot" by Bedloe. The book measures 12 3/8" by 8." Collated largely in folio. Boards are a polished, spotted leather. Gilt stamped centers, blind stamped edging. Spine has six ribs, no label. The spine's top (esp.) and bottom have chips out to a depth of a strong 1/8 of an inch. Front hinge exterior has cracking through full length, not loose due to cordage. Rear hinge much less so, cracked a bit but not through. All boards and surfaces have scuff, scar, tip bumping. Back board has one notable abrasion about the size of a grown man's index finger. We will now discuss the book's interior giving the printing data for 0-59 only and attempting to summarize the various library notes, ancient fountain pennings and so forth without capturing them all. First pastedown has BC library notes, WD of Queens notes. Both this sheet and the next blank endsheet have heavy edge browning. Next sheet facing blank, verso has statements from Brown and Oates dated 1679. Balance of printing information from title page as follows, "London: Printed for Thomas Parkhurst, and Thomas Cockerill, at the Bible and Three Crowns in Cheapside near mercers Chapel, and at the Three Legs in the Poultrey. M DC LXXIX." In the interest of brevity I will not list the particulars of the four following pamphlets, rather trying to summarize condition, faults and flaws. First endsheet has postage stamp sized diagonal chip off lower corner. Pages 2 thorugh 9 of the Oates have unusually heavy foxing, as do some later sections of the text. Each pamphlet has pencilled Wing number. Text in general is neither the most nor least perfect I have seen from this era. Text is generally wavy yet legibile throughout, spottily foxed. The foredge has marbling all edges, top edge darker. The Bedloe section is a shade lighter at the foredge. The Smith finishes at page 35 with two lines of errata.The full publication data from O-59 as follows,"Published by the order of the right Honorable the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled.

        Dissertatio de carentia sensus & cognitionis in brutis. Nürnberg: Zieger, 1679.

      - Second edition of Le Grand's exposition in Latin of Descartes's view of animals, first published in London in 1675. Later it was translated into English by Richard Blome and published as the third part of An Entire Body of Philosophy (1694). Le Grand was born at Douai and probably died in London. He was educated at the College in his native city of Douai, where many English Catholics would have been among his fellow students. He became a Franciscan friar, teaching philosophy and divinity before he was sent on the English Mission. He lived for many years in Oxfordshire and became known as the most prominent English Cartesian of his age. He was the first writer to present the doctrines of Descartes in scholastic format, in his Philosophia veterum e mente Renati Descartes, more scholastic breviter digesta (1671). This was expanded into the Institutio philosopiae, secundum principia Renati Descartes (1672) and was followed by the Historia naturae (1673), which sets out a variety of observations of natural phenomena, and then accounts for them in terms of Cartesian principles. 'And finally, in his third book, A Dissertation of the Want of Sense and Knowledge in Brute Animals, Le Grand argued against the supposed link of life and sense from Plato onwards, and after offering a brief survey of various hypotheses on the nature of soul by Aristotle, Gassendi, Fabri, and Descartes, he adopted Descartes's view. In the Preface, Le Grand writes that "this whole work contains nothing else, but his [Descartes's] opinions, or what may clearly and distinctly be deduced from them"' (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). Yet Le Grand may have started a tradition of misinterpreting Descartes's views on animals: 'To be able to believe that a dog with a broken paw is not really in pain when it whimpers is a quite extraordinary achievement even for a philosopher. Yet according to the standard interpretation, this is just what Descartes did believe. He held, we are informed, the "monstrous" thesis that "animals are without feeling or awareness of any kind". The basis for this widely accepted interpretation is Descartes' famous doctrine of the "bete-machine"; a doctrine that one critic condemns as "a grim foretaste of a mechanically minded age [which] brutally violates the old kindly fellowship of living things". But if we look at what Descartes actually says about animals it is by no means clear that he holds the monstrous view which all the commentators attribute to him' (John Cottingham, 'A Brute to the Brutes?: Descartes' Treatment of Animals', Philosophy, Vol. 53, No. 206, pp. 551-9). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 8vo, 139, [5] pp., recent quarter calf, slight loss to lower edge of title and one other leaf, small marginal waterstain in places and some light browning, a sound copy.

        La Mer de Nort ou sont la N.le France, La Floride, La N.le Espagne, Les Isles et la Terre-ferme d'Amerique

      Chez l'Auteur, Paris 1679 - Scarce 17th century mapping of America. This superb map of the New World evinces mid-seventeenth century French geographical knowledge, based largely upon the work of the great French cartographer, Nicolas Sanson, Duval's father-in-law. It is also an excellent example of the French cartographic aesthetic, exalting clarity and classical elegance. Duval, with some geographical modernizations, based this map on his smaller 1655 rendering of the same subject. The depiction of the American Northeast is somewhat more progressive than that shown by Sanson. New York, Boston, Cape Cod, Virginia and Maryland are each specifically named. Up into the interior, Duval shows all five Great Lakes, however the boundaries of Lakes Superior and Michigan ("Lac des Puans") are left undetermined. Most of the American Southeast is shown as a part of the great Spanish territory of "Floride," which extends north into the Carolinas. South Carolina is labeled "Floride Françoise," and "Charles-Fort," the abortive French settlement on Port Royal Sound from the 1560s, is labeled here. This map appeared as the top right sheet of Duval's four sheet wall map, titled Carte de Geographie: "All [i.e. each sheet] were designed with individual titles so that they could be viewed independently or when these were removed they could be pasted together to form a large wall map" (Burden). The present example is from the first state of the map. Burden, The Mapping of North America II:508. Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline.
