      London : Awnsham Churchill, 1682 A good copy of the 1st edition in later full leather binding with frontispiece and 23 full page plates, of which 10 are folding. Leybourn's first work on Dialing was published in 1669; it's popularity (particularly given the use of sun-dials and astrolabes by the navy at that time) led to this expanded folio version, funded by subscription. William Leybourn was a leading practical mathematician and authored a number of works on surveying, Gunter's Line and measuring tables. This copy has been rebound fairly recently in a full pigskin binding with raised bands and title and author labels. New endpapers have been added, and the frontispiece relaid and repaired (there was loss to the side edge and a little damage to the portrait). Contents with title page; To the Reader 3pp; Contents of the Tractates [the work is arranged in 11 sections or Tractates] 4pp; errata 1p; Introduction 12pp; text with plates, tables and diagrams 330 pp; finis; final blank. The pagination is erratic but the text is continuous. P119/120 is missing and has been replaced by a facsimile. There is some crinkling and loss to page edges, particularly at the beginning and areas of browning/spotting. The plate at p295 has been relaid - with some loss to the bottom margin. There is occasional ink annotation and highlighting. Please ask for more images to fully assess condition.

Orné de nombreuses médailles gravées. "Ceci serait la première édition, intéressante parce qu'on y a marqué le cabinet où se trouvait chacune des médailles qui y sont décrites, et de plus les Posthumes d'or et d'argent ont été omis dans la seconde édition de Paris." (Jacob, tome II, p. 151). Vaillant rapporta de ses voyages une grande quantité de monnaies précieuses qui firent du Cabinet du Roi le premier médailler d'Europe.

Nani (1616-1678) fut ambassadeur de Venise en France. L'éditeur signale que "cette édition est plus correcte que l'édition de Paris de l'an 1679 où l'on a omis... quelques deux cens endroits, que nous avons insérés ici...", le texte original italien n'étant pas toujours indulgent pour la France... Pierre du Marteau est un imprimeur fictif sous le nom duquel les Elzevir puis nombre d'imprimeurs hollandais, belges, et français firent paraître leurs livres clandestins, permettant ainsi de ménager les susceptibilités politiques et religieuses des pays catholiques, tout en évitant d'impliquer les noms des grands imprimeurs dans les contrefaçons. Jolie édition ornée de très beaux portraits gravés sur cuivre, dont Charles Emmanuel de Savoye, Philippe III d'Espagne, Ferdinand III... Brunet IV, 5: "la meilleure édition".

      1682 ca In-folio manuscrit de (224) ff., maroquin rouge, dos orné à nerfs, double filet doré d'encadrement sur les plats avec fleurons d'angle, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque). Important document calligraphié de la fin du XVIIe siècle vierge de toute marque administrative, qui répertorie les "livres de mandements" sur près de deux siècles depuis l'arrivée de la cour souveraine à Nantes jusqu'à la fin du XVIIe siècle : Du premier livre des mandements commencé le 23 mai 1496 (...) du 36e livre des mandements commencé en la France de 7bre 1681. Suivi des Anoblissements incerez dans les Livres de la Chanceleyrie estants dans la Chambre des comptes de Bretagne (1471-1483). La table établie vers 1682 (à l'époque du dernier livre recensé) propose un double classement chronologique et alphabétique selon la nature de l'acte. Les mandements se présentaient sous l'Ancien Régime comme des lettres à caractère administratif de toute nature, à un seul objet pour un bénéfice limité dans le temps : affranchissements, arrets, serment de fidelité, provisions, pouvoirs, lettres de contrôleur, amortissements, erection en chateleinye, dons, confirmation, contrats. L'installation à Nantes de la chambre des comptes de Bretagne est décidée par Anne de Bretagne en 1492, agrandie et rebâtie sous trois règnes successifs jusqu'en 1553 avant d'importantes modifications au XVIIIe siècle. Elle compta jusqu'à 1200 magistrats dont soixante-dix neuf membres furent anoblies grâce à l'institution. Les présidents et les procureurs généraux venaient de l'ancienne noblesse. Traces d'usures (coiffes et coins frottés), mouillures sur la reliure. Pièce précieuse en maroquin rouge de l'époque qui a échappé en son temps aux Archives de la Province de Bretagne établies à Nantes dans le même bâtiment que la Chambre des Comptes.

        Gedenkweerdige Brasiliaense Zee- en Lant-Reize. [With] Zee en Lant-Reize, door verscheide Gewesten van Oostindien

      Amsterdam Widow of Jacob van Meurs 1682 - First edition. Folio, Two parts in one. [10], 47, 40-192, 195-240, [2] pp., engraved portrait of Nieuhof trimmed and mounted, engraved additional title, 4 engraved plates, 2 of which double page (including map of Brazil), engraved coat-of-arms, illustrations in the text; [2], 218, 217-308, [4] pp, 45 engraved plates, 29 of which double-page, including maps, old vellum lettered in ink, yapp edges, slight fraying to front free endpaper, a good clean example. A beautifully illustrated account of travels in Brazil and the East Indies. Nieuhof (1618-1672), a Dutch traveller and official, left two very interesting accounts of his years spent in Dutch Brazil and the Dutch East Indies. He was employed by the Dutch West india Company (WIC) in Brazil from 1640 to explore the regions between Maranhão and the São Francisco Rivers, and made a particular study of the vicinity of Pernambuco. He left Brazil in 1649, after the Portuguese victory in the Second Battle of Guararapes. Upon his return, Nieuhof joined the service of the Dutch East India Company (or "VOC"). In service of the VOC he resided several years in Batavia, before being appointed in 1654 steward of an embassy to the relatively new Qing emperor of China under Peter de Goyer and Jacob de Keyser, which aimed to gain trading rights on China's southern coast. In his several travels in the East he visited Sumatra, Java, Amboyna, Formosa (Taiwan), China, Malacca, India, Ceylon, Persia, and St. Helena. His narratives give very informative accounts of the places he visited.

        Traité de la Communion sous les deux especes

      Paris: Sebastien Mabre-Cramoisy, 1682. 12mo (149 x 80 mm). [8], 461, [2], [1 blank] pp. Printer's engraved stork device on title, engraved headpiece, initial, and two tailpieces. Scattered dampstaining, first table leaf (ã2) rehinged, front free endpaper with repaired tear. Contemporary speckled calf, sides with the gold-tooled arms of Madame de Maintenon's library in the Maison Royale de Saint-Louis at Saint-Cyr: a cross topped with a crown and with fleurs-de-lis terminating the 3 other ends, within a single gilt fillet, spine gold-tooled and -lettered in 7 compartments, board edges gilt, red-sprinkled edges (cracks and scrapes to front cover, discreet old repairs to joints, wear to joints and extremities). Provenance: Françoise d'Aubigné, Marquise de Maintenon (1635-1719), morganatic second wife of Louis XIV, supra-libros as above of her library at the Maison de St. Cyr, and with a contemporary or early 18th-century inscription at head of title, "Ex Libris Cong[regatio]nis Missionis Domus S[anc]ti Cyrici"; Charles van der Elst, bookplate.*** first edition, rare association copy, from Madame de Maintenon's library at the Maison Royale de Saint-Louis at Saint-Cyr, the first secular girls' school in France. Madame de Maintenon knew Bossuet well from court (both had tutored the Royal offspring) and shared his religious views and respect for reasoned argument as the best weapon against Protestantism. This copy of his treatise on Communion must have been read by the pupils of the school, the brainchild and life's project of Louis XIV's remarkable second wife. For a person of deep piety, Madame de Maintenon, who was to a large extent a "self-made" woman, had an extraordinarily romantic life. To sum up the most relevant details, following the death of her first husband the poet and playwright Paul Scarron, Françoise née d'Aubigné, now Madame Scarron, became governess of the King's illegitimate children with his then mistress Madame de Montespan, thanks to the latter's friendship. Her successful nursing of their son the Duc de Maine through a serious illness and overall skill as a governess earned her royal approval and a reward of 200,000 livres, with which she purchased the lands and title of Maintenon. "Newly ennobled and financially secure, Madame de Maintenon now took her own place as a titled aristocrat among the courtiers of Versailles. When the affair between Louis XIV and Madame de Montespan collapsed, Maintenon encouraged the king to reconcile with his estranged wife, Marie-Thérèse of Austria. The successful reconciliation between the spouses enhanced Maintenon's standing in court but earned her the enmity of her old patron, Madame de Montespan. "After the sudden death of Queen Marie-Thérèse on July 9, 1683, the king drew closer to Maintenon. On October 9, 1683, the archbishop of Paris married the couple in a private ceremony. The bride's modest social origins raised a problem, since Louis XIV had insisted on dynastic marriages for other members of his family. The marriage was never publicly announced, although the court quickly perceived that Madame de Maintenon had assumed the role and duties of Louis XIV's legitimate wife. The private marriage was also morganatic; Maintenon would never assume the title of queen and no relative of hers could claim the right to the throne. "In 1684 Maintenon began her life's work: the construction of a school for the education of daughters of the impoverished nobility [of which there were increasing numbers]. Situated in 1686 at Saint-Cyr, the Institute of Saint Louis was generously subsidized by Louis XIV. Maintenon personally supervised the direction of the school, designed to serve two hundred and fifty students. The school possessed a comparatively sophisticated curriculum, featuring courses in religion, reading, writing, mathematics, Latin, music, painting, dancing, needlework, and home economics. Dissatisfied with the narrowly religious education provided by the convent schools of the period, Maintenon founded her own lay group of teachers, the Dames of Saint-Louis, to provide instruction. Maintenon insisted that dialogue rather than lecture was to be the primary means of education in the Saint-Cyr classroom..." (Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy). Maintenon regulated every detail of the school, including the curriculum. Bossuet's history of the origin, development, and controversies surrounding Communion would have been proper reading for the older girls. Only a handful of books are known bearing Maintenon's personal arms; most of those recorded are adorned with one of several different crosses, the insignia of the school at St. Cyr. These St. Cyr binding stamps are described in the 1908 Archives de la Société des collectionneurs d'ex-libris (see below). Quentin Bauchart states that those stamps on which the cross is covered with an overall design of fleurs-de-lis belonged to Mme de Maintenon's personal library, while the books stamped with plain crosses (as here) were part of the school library. The distinctions between the two collections were tenuous, as Mme. de Maintenon's residence was directly adjacent to the library (Archives, p. 88). Declaring that "all are of equal merit as far as the binding is concerned, and they bring a high price at auction" (p. 77), Quentin-Bauchart listed 40 books from the Maintenon / St. Cyr library (most in red morocco, unlike this plain copy which would have been used by the girls), including several other works by Bossuet (nos. 28, 30, 31). In spite of Mme. de Maintenon's efforts to maintain a secular school for girls, the school's funding came from the Church, via the Abbey of Saint-Denis, and in 1692 the church hierarchy, who disapproved of the lay teachers, ordered that the school become a regular convent. Maintenon retired to St. Cyr in 1715 after the death of Louis XI; she died there four years later and was buried in the church choir. The school was closed after secularization, in 1793. Tchemerzine 2:371. On the binding, see Archives de la Société des collectionneurs d'ex-libris 15-16 (1908), pp. 87-91; and Quentin-Bauchart, Les Femmes bibliophiles, pp. 269-290, & figure 8.

Scarce English edition. Ludolf (1624-1704), is regarded as the father of modern Ethiopian studies. "A work full of recondite and important information on the origin of the Abyssinians, the climate, soil, productions, etc." Lowndes. "The land of Ethiopia had long fascinated Europeans, not merely as an exotic and foreign land full of strange beasts, as evidenced by the incredibly ferocious looking hippo portrayed below, but also as an ancient and independent Christian empire beyond the realms of Islam which hemmed them in. It had adopted Christianity in the 4th century A.D. but had been cut off from Western Europe by the spread of Islam across northern Africa and the Middle East. In the Middle Ages the myth of Prester John, a powerful Christian prince and potential ally against the Muslim world, grew in the minds of Europeans, and when contacts were re-established with Ethiopia in the 15th century it seemed to fit the bill. When the Portuguese sent military aid, to counter Islamic threats to their trading interests in the region in the 16th century, Jesuit missionaries followed them. They became so influential at court that they converted the Emperor and became a threat to the native Monophysite church, leading to their expulsion in 1632" St. John's College, Cambridge.

        Ottaviano Cesare Augusto. Melodrama da rappresentarsi nel Teatro Ducale dell'Altezza Serenissima di Mantova l'anno M.DC.LXXXII. Venetia, Francesco Nicolini, 1682

      Nicolini Franc, 1682. in - 4 picc., pp. 60, leg. epoca cart. rustico. Elaborato antiporta con simboli e figure allegoriche (firm. ''F.co Getto'' e ''A Bosio''); titolo racchiuso in bordura silogr. con una corona al centro; testatine, fregi ed iniz. silogr. Prima edizione, pubblicata anonima, di questo melodramma per musica in tre atti in versi, con mutamenti di scena e due balli. Assai raro. Dall'avviso al lettore si apprende il titolo di altre opere composte dal nostro, che la presente fu voluta dal Duca di Mantova ''per rappresentarsi nel tempo della solennità dell'Ascensione nel suo Teatro Ducale'' e che la ''musica impareggiabile'' fu composta da Giovanni Legrenzi, ''Maestro di Cappella della Ser.ma Rep. di Venetia'' (a quest'ultimo, che fu sicuramente uno dei più rinomati compositori dell'epoca, il Fétis dedica un lungo articolo). L'autore del testo (indifferentemente catalogato anche come Berengani o Beregan o Bergani) nacque a Vicenza nel 1627 e morì a Venezia nel 1713, fu avvocato e letterato, traduttore di classici latini ed autore di svariati melodrammi che ebbero fortuna e successo. Ottimo esempl.

        Raconisium. Ser.mi Emanuelis Philiberti a Sabaudia Cariniani Principis Oppidum.

      - Amsterdam, 1682 circa. Dal "Theatrum Sabaudiae", incisione in rame all’acquaforte, b/n, cm 51 x 59 (alla lastra), cm 57 x 66 (il foglio). In basso a sinistra, entro cartiglio, titolo e legenda dei luoghi con 14 rimandi numerati; in basso a destra, entro l'inciso. "Amstelodami Exc. Ioannes Blaeu". In alto ai lati due stemmi. Intorno alla metà del XVII secolo, per il Ducato dei Savoia, attento al proprio ruolo politico, si imponeva la diffusione di un'immagine magnifica che solo un'opera editoriale di grandiose proporzioni avrebbe potuto assicurare: un libro figurato, ove immagini e testi risultassero reciproco completamento per la celebrazione della dinastia. Nasceva così, presso i Blaeu, intorno al 1661, il "Theatrum Statuum Regiae Celsitudinis Sabaudiae Ducis Pedemontii Principis Cypri Regis", manifesto politico del duca di Savoia, diretto a tutte le altri corti europee, opera che si sarebbe conclusa solo verso il 1682. Nell'opera (due volumi in folio), le incisioni si fanno testimonianza ed esaltazione della grandezza del sovrano: nel primo tomo, alle antiporte, ritratti, dediche e carte geografiche, fanno seguito le vedute della città capitale con le sue piazze, i suoi più insigni edifici civili e religiosi, le certose e le abbazie, i castelli e le altre strutture di difesa dello Stato, tutti attributi di decoro e magnificenza; seguono quindi le vedute delle principali città del ducato. Il secondo volume descrive le terre della Savoia, del Vercellese e del Monferrato, i monumenti storici e archeologici del ducato e le cose da contemplare, perché straordinarie. L'opera riproduceva grosso modo lo schema di precedenti imprese editoriali realizzate dai Blaeu (è chiaro il riferimento al "Teatro delle città principali delle Fiandre."). Foglio con uno strappetto al margine laterale destro che solo appena tocca l'inciso, peraltro esemplare in ottima morsura e a pieni margini.

        Of the Law of Warre and Peace: The Most Excellent Hugo Grotius His Three Books Treating of the Rights of War & Peace: In the First Is Handled Whether Any War Be Just; in the Second Is Shewed the Causes of War, Both Just and Unjust; In the Third Is Declared What in War Is Lawful

      London Printed by M.W. for Thomas Basset . and Ralph Smith 1682 - Folio. [4], xxi, [5], 570p., frontis, [29]. Bound in contempory leather rebacked, with modern spine. Gilt, Red leather spine label. 6 raised bands. Fine binding and cover. Small pinhead size marginal wormhole from p. 173 to end. Clean, unmarked pages with minimal tanning. Wing G2126; Goldsmiths 2491; Kress 1557. De jure belli ac pacis libri tres (On the Law of War and Peace: Three books) was first published in 1625 and dedicated to Grotius' patron, Louis XIII. His most lasting work, begun in prison and published during his exile in Paris, was a monumental effort to restrain such conflicts on the basis of a broad moral consensus. The treatise advances a system of principles of natural law, which are held to be binding on all people and nations regardless of local custom.The work is divided into three books: Book I advances his conception of war and of natural justice, arguing that there are some circumstances in which war is justifiable.Book II identifies three 'just causes' for war: self-defense, reparation of injury, and punishment; Grotius considers a wide variety of circumstances under which these rights of war attach and when they do not.Book III takes up the question of what rules govern the conduct of war once it has begun; influentially, Grotius argued that all parties to war are bound by such rules, whether their cause is just or not.The arguments of this work constitute a theory of Just War. Roughly, the second book takes up questions of jus ad bellum (justice in the resort to war) and the third, questions of jus in bello (justice in the conduct of war). The way that Grotius conceived of these matters had, together with Francisco de Vitoria's De potestate civili, a profound influence on the tradition after him and on the later formulation of international law. "The questions which he put forward have come to be the basis of the ultimate view of law and society. This was the first attempt to lay down a principle of right, and a basis for society and government, outside Church or Scripture. Grotius' principle of an immutable law, which God can no more alter than a mathematical axiom, was the first expression of the 'droit naturel,' the natural law which exercised the great political theorists of the 18th century and is the foundation of modern international law" (Printing in the Mind of Man 125).

De sorte que le texte de 1682 diffère souvent un peu de celui des éditions originales séparées et de l'édition collective de 1674.  [...] Malgré cela, c'est le texte qui a le plus souvent servi de modèle pour les nombreuses éditions données jusqu'à nos jours." (J. Le Petit, Bibliographie des principales éditions originales). . Superbe exemplaire de la fameuse édition de 1682 établi dans une très élégante reliure signée de Marcelin Lortic.

        Opiologia ad mentem academiae naturae curiosorum.

      Jena, Samuel Krebs' Wwe. für Johann Bielcke, 1682. - 4to. (16), 170, (20) pp., final blank. With engraved vignette to title, printed in red an black. (With:) Ettmüller, Michael. De virtute opii diaphoretica dissertatio. Leipzig & Jena, Krebs for Bielcke, [1682]. 48 pp. Contemp. marbled half vellum. Second edition of this early monograph on the pharmacological and therapeutic aspects of opium. "The main text is a reissue of the 1674 edition" (Krivatsy). Wedel not only evaluates the medical literature but also all available travel reports. The chapter entitled "An aphrodisiacum sit opium & mulierem excitet?" provides an overview of the various opinions, including Saar's account from his East Indian journeys noting the use of opium in Batavian brothels, as well as Garcia's contradictory information that opium leads to infertility and impotence (p. 128f.). The title vignette depicts a Turkish opium picker: scratching the poppy seed capsule with his knife, he collects the sap. The appendix contains the first printing of a dissertation on the qualities of opium, written by Michael Ettmüller (d. 1683), who dedicated his work to his colleage Wedel. - G. W. Wedel (1645-1721) was one of the principal physicians of his age. He authored 49 books and was the teacher of several progressively minded medical men. He is credited with the timeless aphorism that "medicine is nothing but the incessant renewal of ignorance." His "Opiologia" won him admission to the Academy of Naturalists, the still-extant "Leopoldina" in Halle. "Wedel stood midway between medieval and modern world views, defending astrology and alchemy and championing iatrochemistry" (DSB XIV, 212). "Wedel appears to have been one of the first to employ the word physiology in its present restricted sense" (Thorndike VIII, s. v.). - Evenly browned throughout; binding slightly rubbed. A fine copy.

Josse, 1737, 12mo (cm. 16,5), 22 cc.nn., 469(1) pp., 7 cc.nn. Entrambi i Voll. con legature settecentesche in piena pelle con nervi e ricchi fregi oro ai ds. Titoli oro su doppio tassello rosso. Tagli rossi. Timbretti scuriti sulle carte di guardia, fenditure alle cerniere, più accentuate sul secondo libro, alcune carte uniformemente ingiallite, ma - nel complesso - buon esemplare di un’opera di cui difficilmente si trovano insieme i due volumi che la compongono per essere usciti a distanza di anni. Il contributo di Dominique Bouhours è molto apprezzato per lo studio della lingua francese del XVII Secolo. Esso fu concepito, in polemica con gli scrittori di Port Royal, per difendere e continuare le Osservazioni sulla lingua pubblicate pochi anni prima da Vaugelas.
