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 Labbe, 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 Orleans 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 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. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        HISTORIA DELL'AUGUSTA CITTÀ DI TORINO [...]. [Unita a:] PARTE SECONDA [...].

      IN TORINO, PER BARTOLOMEO ZAPPATA, 1679; IBIDEM, NELLA STAMPA DELLI FRATELLI ZAPPATA, 1712 2 volumi In-folioLegatura coeva in piena pelle color avana maculata; dorso a sette nervi rilevati, decorato alle caselle con fiore a losanga entro riquadro con fregi, recante tasselli con titolo e indicazione del numero di tomo, ai piatti bordura con angoli floreali e fregio centrale il tutto impresso in oro; tagli rossi. Antiporta figurata incisa su matrice di rame - (12) - 514 - (22); antiporta figurata identica a quella del primo volume - (14) - 811 - (21) pagine numerate, compresi i frontespizi con marca tipografica silografata (ripetizione della marca e dei dati tipografici all'ultima facciata del I tomo). Testo in lingua italiana. Grandi capilettera decorati a racemi e sontuosi fregi tipografici, il tutto impresso a silografia. Due illustrazioni nel testo del II tomo, incise su matrice di rame da Tasnière: la prima (p. 447) raffigurante il recto e il verso dell'ostia del Miracolo eucaristico torinese (avvenuto nel 1453); la seconda (p. 796) con riproduzione di medaglia del duca Emanuele Filiberto di Savoia. Mancanza, al primo volume, del ritratto dell'Autore, come in quasi tutti gli esemplari conosciuti. L'opera, in edizione originale, è una storia della città di Torino, capitale dello stato sabaudo. La prima parte, dedicata alla reggente Maria Giovanna Battista di Savoia Nemours, è dovuta in gran parte a Emanuele Tesauro, protagonista della cultura della corte subalpina, storiografo e grande teorico letterario; Lozzi (citando Coleti) scrive che a Tesauro spettano i primi 5 libri del tomo, mentre al protonotario apostolico Giroldi gli altri due (il che è una svista perché la I parte si compone di 8 libri). La II parte, compresa nel II tomo, venne invece composta dal "regio economo generale" F. M. Ferrero di Lauriano, e reca la data 1712. Il sontuoso antiporta, su invenzione del pittore Domenico Piola (Genova 1627 - 1703) fu eseguito da Bartolomeo Giuseppe Tasnière (Torino 1676 - 1752); di particolare interesse è la mappa di Torino retta da uno dei personaggi rappresentati: nella pianta si notano sia l'ingrandimento realizzato da Carlo Emanuele I che quello più tardo nella contrada di Po. Esemplare in discreto stato conservativo; al primo tomo usuale ossidazione alle carte, gore d'acqua e restauri agli angoli superiori delle prime carte; fresco l'interno del II tomo, per la migliore qualità della carta usata. La legatura presenta delle piccole mancanze di pellame, in particolare al primo volume.

        Some Observations Upon the Late Tryals of Sir George Wakeman, Corker and Marshal

      London - A. Brewster, 1679. London - A. Brewster, 1679 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce pamphlet documenting the trials of Sir George Wakeman, WIlliam Marshal and James Corker, after their reported involvement in the Popish Plot during the reign of Charles II. Sir George Wakeman (died 1688) was an English royal physician to Catherine of Braganza, Consort of Charles II of England. In 1678, he was perjured by Titus Oates, who had gained backing of Thomas Osborne, 1st Earl of Danby, highly placed in government. Oates accused Wakeman of conspiring to kill the King with the help of and place his brother James, Duke of York on the throne in his place. At his trial in 1679 Wakeman was acquitted. The acquittal dealt a blow at credibility of the Plot, but there was a public backlash also. Wakeman went to Windsor to see the queen and king, and left the country. In the course of evidence given at subsequent trials Oates entirely ignored the verdict, and continued to speak of the bribe offered to and accepted by the queen's physician. Wakeman was back in London by 1685, and gave evidence against Oates on 8 May 1685, in his first trial for perjury. Nothing is known of his further career. He is Owen Bartletts ancestor. Condition: Disbound folio. Binding is tender, but holding. Pages are mildly browned but generally clean, with just the odd spot. Overall: GOOD..

        L'ouvrage de la création, traitté physique du monde. Nouveau systheme. Raisonnemens differens de ceux des anciens & des nouveaux philosophes.

      Paris, Vve Claude Thiboust 1679 - In-12. Collation : frontispice, (44), 260, (3) pp., 1 planche hors-texte. Maroquin rouge, dos à nerfs orné, armes dorées sur les plats, encadrements dorés, tranches dorées. (Reliure de l'époque.) 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. OCLC gives only one copy in North-America. Très bel exemplaire. // You can browse all my books on latude.net

      Frankfurt und Leipzig, Johann Erich Hahn für Friedrich Lüderwald, 1679. Format: 8°.. [16], 648, [88] S.. Mit gestochenem Frontispiz (in Pag.), Titel in Schwarz und Rot gedruckt.. Pergament der Zeit mit spanischen Kanten winzige Fehlstellen am Gelenk, etwas beschabt und minimal fleckig.. Editio quarta prioribus et locupletior et emendatior. Erste Ausgabe.. *** Erste Ausgabe. Vierte, von dem Polyhistoriker Joachim Feller (1628-1691) umfangreich erweiterte Ausgabe der Universalgeschichte des Johannes de Laet (1593-1649), in der die profane wie christliche Weltgeschichte auf der Grundlage der Quellen geschildert wird. "Große Verdienste erwarb sich Feller um den Ausbau der Leipziger Bibliothek. Er veröffentlichte den ersten "Catalogus codicum manuscriptorum Bibliothecae Paulinae" (Leipzig 1686), der von holländischer und englischer Seite zwar kritisch beleuchtet, aber noch 100 Jahre später von Lessing betont gewürdigt wurde. Seine historischen Arbeiten zur sächsischen Geschichte des 15. und 16. Jahrhunderts erschlossen unbekannte Quellen" (NDB V, 73). Gedruckt wurde die Ausgabe mit der besonders hübschen, feinen Antiqua-Type des Leipziger Schriftgießers Johann Erich Hahn (1656-1680) für den aus der "Bibliopolis Helmstadensis" stammenden Verleger Friedrich Lüderwald (1673-1696). Das Frontispiz gegenüber dem schwarz und rot gedruckten Titelblatt zeigt eine Allegorie der "Historia", die ihre "Milch der Weisheit" aus ihren Brüsten verspritzt und damit die flankierenden Allegorien "Pietas" und "Eruditio" erleuchtet. Diese - ebenfalls als hübsche Frauen dargestellt, werden vom Milchstrahl getroffen, bzw. fangen die Milch als Tinte der Chronographie in einer Tasse auf, in die sie die Schreibfeder tauchen. Vorsätze leicht leimschattig, durchgehend gering und gleichmäßig gebräunt, sehr schönes, wohlerhaltenes Exemplar. VD17 39:122386P.

Langlois, 1679. - 1679 Charles Martel & Islamic Invasion Battle of Tours Saracen Muslim Islam Extremely Rare & Valuable 2in1 / compare@$4,700 Charles Martel (c. 688 – 22 October 741) was a Frankish statesman and military leader who, as Duke and Prince of the Franks and Mayor of the Palace, was de facto ruler of Francia from 718 until his death. The illegitimate son of Frankish strongman, Pepin of Heristal, and a noblewoman named Alpaida, Martel successfully asserted his claims to power as successor to his father as the power behind the throne in Frankish politics. Continuing and building on his father’s work, he restored centralized government in Francia and began the series of military campaigns that re–established the Franks as the undisputed masters of all Gaul. In foreign wars, Martel subjugated Bavaria, Alemannia, and Frisia, vanquished the pagan Saxons, and halted the Islamic advance into Western Europe at the Battle of Tours. - I find only one example of this treasure for sale worldwide priced at over $4,700 (Bonnefoi Livres Anciens in Paris) Main author: Jacques Carel de Sainte Garde Title: Charle Martel, ou les Sarrazins chassez de France, poeme héroique par M.

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

      prev 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 USS 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. That card also advertised her as “The Fastest Ship in the World!” Both the card and the handbill were printed by Nesbitt, of New York. The card is scarce, but the handbill is a rare, possibly unique, survival. In Fine condition.

Scarce. ~III~ Richard Baxter (1615 - 1691) was an English Puritan church leader, poet, hymn-writer, theologian, and controversialist. Dean Stanley called him 'the chief of English Protestant Schoolmen.' He made his reputation by his ministry at Kidderminster, Worcestershire, England, and at around the same time began a long and prolific career as theological writer. After the Restoration he refused preferment, while retaining a non-separatist Presbyterian approach, and became one of the most influential leaders of the nonconformists, spending time in prison. Prior to the publication of this volume, 'The Nonconformists Plea for Peace,' Baxter was responding to attacks on nonconformists in a multitude of books. In these, Baxter said, nonconformists were accused of being 'adversaries of peace, lovers of contentions, guilty of schism, sedition and all uncharitableness.' The 'Plea for Peace' was intended to meet all these objections and to lay the true grounds of nonconformity before the world. It is therefore both a defensive and offensive work. From his own account, he wrote the book as much to pursuade mistaken friends as attacking enemies. 'Two old friends, whom I had a hand in turning from anabaptistry and separation . . . fell on writing against separation, more than any of the conformable clergy. In consequence of their old error, they now ran into the other extreme, especially Mr. [Thomas] Lamb. They wrote against our gathering assemblies, and preaching when we were silenced; against whose mistakes I wrote The Nonconformists Plea for Peace.' Baxter wrote 168 or so separate works, including major treatises such as 'Christian Directory,' 'Methodus Theologiae Christianae,' and 'Catholic Theology.' . Very Good. 1679.

        Fifty Comedies And Tragedies

      London: Printed by J. Macock for John Martyn, Henry Herringman and Richard Marriot,, 1679. London: Printed by J. Macock for John Martyn, Henry Herringman and Richard Marriot,, 1679. All In One Volume. Published by the Authors Original Copies, The Songs to Each Play Being Added. Folio (355 × 228 mm) Early twentieth-century lightly sprinkled calf by Zaehnsdorf, green morocco title label and date strip to the tail of the spine, narrow bands with gilt sexfoil roll, compartments gilt with arabesqued floral corner-pieces enclosing a floral centre-tool, panels of a dogtooth roll enclosing triple-fillet gilt with cinquefoil corner-pieces, foliate edge-roll, all edges rough gilt, floral roll to the turn-ins, marbled endpapers. Engraved portrait frontispiece of Fletcher by William Marshall. Spine neatly repaired head, tail and at the joints, hinges lined with linen, endpapers tan-burned from the turn-ins, and quite heavily browned verso, but the contents just lightly so, a very good copy. Second collected edition "with no fewer than Seventeen Plays more than were in the former Edition [of 1647]" (The Booksellers to the Reader). There are in fact eighteen extra plays, The Wild Goose Chase has not been recognised as such in the "Catalogue". The publishers make some great claims for this "Second Impression" in their address to the "Courteous Reader"; "we were very desirous [that it] might come forth as Correct as might be. And we were very opportunely informed of a Copy which an ingenious and worthy Gentleman had taken the pains (or rather the pleasure) to read over; wherein he had all along Corrected several faults (some very gross) which had crept in … From the same hand also we received several Prologues and Epilogues, with the Songs appertaining to each Play …And whereas in several of the Plays there were wanting the Names of the Persons represented therein, in this Edition you have them all prefixed, with their Qualities; which will be a great ease to the Reader". And if this edition should "gratifie and oblige the Reader", the publishers suggest that they "shall be encourag'd to bring Ben Johnson's [sic.] two volumes into one … and also reprint Old Shakespear". Herringman was responsible for the first collected Jonson in 1692, and was instrumental in the publication of the Fourth Folio of 1685. Money-Coutts family bookplates dated 1889 signed J.D.B., i.e. John Dickson Batten, to the front pastedown.

        Brief mit Sekretärsunterschrift ("Louis").

      Saint-Germain-en-Laye, 18. II. 1679.. 9 SS. auf 6 (= 3 Doppel-)Blatt. Folio. Mit Adresse.. An den französischen Botschafter im verbündeten Schweden, Isaac de Pas (1618-1688), Marquis de Feuquieres, und tls. in Geheimschrift verfaßt, über der der Empfänger interlinear die Transkription notierte. Ludwig erklärt, daß Frankreich keine Schiffe zur Unterstützung Schwedens schicken könne, gibt Befehle zur Aufstellung der französischen Landstreitkräfte und stimmt dem Vorschlag zu einer Hochzeit des schwedischen Königs mit der Tochter des Herzogs von Braunschweig-Lüneburg zu. Da Ludwigs Armee den alliierten Streitkräften überlegen war, ging Frankreich aus dem von Ludwig angezettelten Holländischen Krieg als Sieger hervor; im "Frieden von Nijmegen", unter dem mehrere separate Friedensverträge zwischen 1678 und 1679 zusammengefaßt werden, wurde festgehalten, daß Frankreich den Großteil seiner Eroberungen behalten konnte, den Norden der besetzten Spanischen Niederlande aber zurückgeben mußte. "[...] [A] squadron of 20 or 30 ships that I might send to Sweden's aid would be too weak to withstand the forces of England; nor is it suitable to the state of my affairs to [...] support this war by putting to sea a flotilla equal to that Crown's [...] Sweden's affairs are everywhere in such a bad state, yet she does not blame her own ill conduct. I have even learned that her ruin in Prussia is so great that it is no longer possible to negotiate for peace with them until [Sweden is] convinced of the nearly invincible obstacles to naval assistance that they have expected from me [...] [S]ince the greatest interest of the K[ing of Sweden] in marriage is that it contributes to make peace and to reestablish him in the Empire, I would view somewhat indifferently the choice that he would make [...]" (Übersetzung a. d. Frz.). - Mitunterzeichnet ist Ludwigs Brief von dem Diplomaten und damaligen Außenminister Simon Arnauld, Marquis de Pomponne (1618-1699); etwas fleckig und angestaubt und mit kleinen Randläsuren.

        Exercitatio physica de artificio navigandi per aerem... (Resp.:) Franciscus David Frescheur.

      Wittenberg, Borckard, 1679.. (18,5 x 14,5 cm). 12 Bll. Moderner Halbpergamentband im Stil der Zeit.. Vermutlich zweite Ausgabe der erstmals 1676 erschienenen Dissertation zur Verteidigung von Lanas Luftschiffprojekt. - "Vor allem aber kämpfte Professor Philipp Lohmeier aus Rinteln für Lanas Flugprojekt. Die Bewunderung für Lanas Idee verführte ihn sogar dazu, an der Universität Wittenberg im Jahre 1674 Vorträge über sie zu halten, ohne dabei Lanas Namen zu nennen. Durch einen seiner Schüler namens Frescheur ließ er eine Dissertation 'De artificio navigandi per aerem' verfassen, die sich fast wörtlich mit dem 6. Kapitel von Lanas 'Prodromo' deckt und nur einige erweiternde Vorschläge hinzufügt. Auch in ihr wurde Lana mit keinem Wort erwähnt, so daß Lohmeier später irrtümlicherweise selbst für den Erfinder gehalten wurde..." (Supf, Buch der dt. Fluggeschichte). - Vereinzelt gering fleckig. Das letzte Blatt mit kleinen Wurmlöchern, sonst gut erhalten. - Liebmann-Wahl 943; vgl. Poggendorff I, 1491; VD17 12:190773V; Sammlung Oberst von Brug 115 (nur die Ausgabe 1676); nicht bei Brockett und Darmon Second edition.

        Quaresimale.

      Florenz, Giacopo Sabatini, 1679.. (20), 747, (20) SS. Mit gest. Frontispiz (C. Bloemart nach C. Ferrus), halbseitigem Titelholzschnitt und zahlreichen Initialen und Vignetten in Holzschnitt. Zeitgenössischer Pergamentband mit goldgeprägtem Rückenschildchen. Spiegel mit Türkischmarmor bezogen, dreiseitig gesprenkelter Schnitt. Folio.. Seltene, erste Ausgabe des Hauptwerks des italienischen Volksmissionars, "tradotta quasi subito in francese, spagnolo, tedesco, inglese, greco e arabo, la piu nota e la piu importante del l'autore" (Libr. Vinciana). Das schöne Frontispiz zeigt den Apostel Paulus bei der Verkündung der Lehre auf dem Areopag in Athen, nach dem Titel folgt die vom April des Jahres datierende Autorenwidmung an Cosimo III. - "Segneri entwickelte "die Methode der zentralen Mission auf dem Land. Diese fand nicht in jeder Siedlung statt, sondern erfaßte von einem Standort aus mehrere Orte mit Prozessionen, Bußzeremonien und Predigten im Freien. Segneri ging barfüßig (angeblich 4.000 Meilen pro Jahr), trug Dornenkronen und geißelte sich (wie auch viele Teilnehmer). In die Residenz- und Hauptstädte zog Segneri sobald die skeptisch-ablehnende Oberschicht dem Begeisterungsdruck des ländlichen Umfeldes nachgab [...] Mit Erfolg schlichtete er blutige Fehden und Racheserien. Regierungen in der Toskana (Cosimo III.), in Modena und Genua förderten die Missionen von Segneri. Die Frauenfeindlichkeit der früheen Neuzeit ("donna-danno") gab er als einer der ersten auf [...]" (BBKL, IX, 1316). - Die italienische Originalausgabe vollständig wie vorliegend sehr selten; kein Nachweis auf Auktionen der letzten Jahrzehnte, selbst dem Exemplar der Libr. Vinciana fehlte das gest. Frontispiz. - Prachtexemplar aus der Florentiner Patrizierbibliothek Galletti mit dem bekrönten Bibliotheksstempel am Titel; der hübsche Einband tadellos, innen sauber und nahezu fleckenfrei auf besserem Papier. - Gamba 903. Parenti 457. Graesse VI, 341. Brunet V, 260. Libr. Vinciana 4854.

An attractive copy. * Later issue of the edition first published by the Society of Stationers in 1606. "The Books of Assises, first published by John Rastell in 1516, are reports in a style very different from that of the other Year Books from the reign of Edward III. They are more concise than the Year Books usually are, giving rather the gist of the argument and the decision than a report of the actual proceedings. They consist chiefly of reports of assizes of novel disseisin and mort d'ancestor and various pleas of the crown heard before justices of assize in the county. They also contain a considerable number of cases in trespass and error heard in the King's Bench, and a few cases in Chancery originated by bill. Thus they were supplementary to the ordinary series of Year Books, which chiefly contained cases heard in the common bench.": Holdsworth, A History of English Law II:536-537.

        Das Erste Buch Vom Wahren Christenthum: Liber Scripturae

      Riga: Cum Grat & Priv. S.R.M.S. 1679 - Fine modern leather binding. Some underlining to first few pages. 4 pages of early notation on rear end pages (journal entries?). Engraved plates throughout. Single page front engraving shows David, sling in hand, facing the Philistines. 1st edition with engraved plates. Scarce Latvian imprint. An important early Lutheran devotional book. Johann Arndt (1555-1621) was a noted German Lutheran theologian. He is seen as a forerunner of pietism. Wahres Christentum (True Christianity) is his most famous book. In Wahres, Arndt deals with the mystical union between the believer and Christ. He endeavors to draw attention to Christ's life in his people, rather than some reformation theologies over-attention to Christ's death for his people. (per wiki) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The bawds tryal and execution: also, a short account of her life and travels. Written by Misomastropus. With Allowance.

      London, Printed for L. C. 1679 - [2],6p. Folio. Edges uncut. A very fine copy. Preserved in a fine elaborate purpose-made half red morocco slip case lettered in gilt. Sole edition. Wing B1166 L, O; CLC, MH, WF, Y. ESTC adds none. A lurid cautionary tale set in the form of a dream narrative in which an "unfortunate soldier of Venus, disgusted at having been Sold the French Commodity at so vast a rate", falls asleep and dreams of the fate that awaits his erstwhile paramour. After a trial in which a full account is given of the lady's life and behaviour, she is sentenced to rot: "thereupon her nose began presently to creep off her Face upon the backs of Maggots, her legs walk'd from under her, her Eyes (those once foolish Lovers Planets) became falling Stars, and dropt from their Orbs, lay like filthy Jelly upon the ground". Misogynistic tirades like this against the loathsome physical manifestations of mutability and decay in the bodies of women once admired for their beauty formed a minor genre in this libertine age and continued to flourish until well into the eighteenth century.
