LE CLERC, Sebastien
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. Wick with ex-libris. Préaud, Leclerc 1087-1116. Préaud, Sébastien Le Clerc, Catalogue de l'Exposition Organisée par la Bibliothèque de Metz, #68.

Tell-Truth, Robert:
No publishing details. c1679. 4pp. 30 x 21 cm. This pamphlet is bound into a slim volume consisting of endpapers, the 4 pp. pamphlet, and 21 blank sheets. The E.S.T.C. dates this work to 1679, though the spine title here has 1680. In the text there is a reference to "the then New States-men in Sixty", and, in a contemporary hand, is a neat footnote "Clarendon &c". After the "Finis" on page 4 what looks like the same contemporary hand has written "Printed 1670". Robert Tell-Truth also published a "Letter to a member of Parliament in the North", c.1726. The front endpaper bears a small neat inscription, "James T. Bell, To E 29.11.09". Half leather and marbled boards. Gilt spine title. In very good condition. Copac lists no copies of this work. A very scarce item.

[POULLAIN DE LA BARRE (Francois)]
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). Signature ex-libris biffee sur le titre. Quelques rousseurs. Provenance: Armand Jules de Rohan-Guemene (1695-1762), archeveque-duc de Reims, qui sacrera Louis XV, avec son ex-libris armorie grave.

Hobbes, Thomas
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/ … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ulm Matthaus Wagner fur Matthaus Schultes 1679. With an engraved frontispiece and 117 numbered woodcuts by Hans Burgkmair, Leopold Schaufelein, Leonhard Beck and others reprinted from the sixteenth century plates, engraved initials and tail-pieces throughout. Folio, in antique half vellum over marbled boards, with institutional gold wax seal on upper board, spine lettered in manuscript. 125 ff; 58 pp. Very handsomely preserved and a very pleasing copy with a bit of age evidence to the binding and some mellowing to the prelims. A FINE EARLY ISSUE OF ONE OF THE MOST SPECTACULAR GERMAN ILLUSTRATED BOOKS OF THE SIXTEENTH CENTURY. The poem is an allegorical chivalric romance celebrating the exploits of the hero (Emperor Maximilian I) in overcoming a series of obstacles in his journey to seek the hand in marriage of Queen Ernreich (Mary of Burgundy) in 1478. Parts of the text were composed by Maximilian himself, who had made the first drafts in 1505-8; his private secretary Melchior Pfintzing oversaw completion of the poem and edited the work. Other contributors were Maximilian's Silberkammerer Sigismund von Dietrichstein and his Geheimsekretar Marx Treitzsauerwein; Johann Stabius and the humanist Conrad Peutinger worked with the printers and artists. A contract survives dated 17 December 1508, in which Maximilian awarded the Augsburg printer Schonsperger, a specialist in the production of German illustrated books, the post of Imperial printer for life, at an annual salary of 10 florins. This printing contains additional preliminary material by Matthaus Schultes and a 58 page wor … [Click Below for Full Description]
