        Contemporary Account of the Rye House Plot Intended to Assassinate.

      1683 - Contemporary Manuscript Account of a Notable Attempt to Assassinate King Charles II [Manuscript]. [Great Britain]. [Rye House Plot]. [Contemporary Account of the Rye House Plot Intended to Assassinate King Charles II, with the Last Speeches of the Conspirators William, Lord Russell and Algernon Sidney Delivered Before Their Executions]. English, c. 1683. [i], 14 ff. (first leaf blank). Quarto (8-1/2" x 6-1/2"). Three-quarter calf over marbled boards, rebacked in period style, gilt title to spine, corners mended, endleaves retained, hinges mended, deckle edges. Text in next hand, a few lines in different, equally neat hand. Light toning, a few minor stains, front pastedown and following leaf bear early owner markings of Sir Thomas Phillipps, the signature of James J. Bell and armorial bookplate of R.G.E. Sandbach, binder ticket of Bretherton, Phillipps's binder, to front pastedown. * The Rye House Plot of 1683 was a plan to assassinate King Charles II and his brother, James, Duke of York, thus terminating the Stuart dynasty. It appears to have been founded on Anti-Catholic sentiments (which would have been shared by Sir Thomas Phillipps later), which feared that Charles II was too closely allied to the Catholic rulers of Europe. An extremist Whig group plotted to hide troops in Rye House, a fortified castle in Hertfordshire, in order to ambush the king and duke as they passed on their way to the horse races at Newmarket. However, a fire in Newmarket caused their plans to change and the plotters were exposed, put on trial and imprisoned or executed. The present manuscript contains at its end the speeches made by two of the group at their executions. William, Lord Russell [1639-1683], M.P. for Bedfordshire, denies knowing of any plot, or having ever seen or spoken with the man who denounced him, but with resolution to his fate: "I have done with this world, and go to a better asking only that all sincere protestants may love one another, and not make way for popery by their Animosities." The speech of Algernon Sidney [1623-1683], M.P. and Baltic Ambassador, is more a formal anti-Catholic essay, citing the insurrection against Nero, the Slaughter of Caligula, or Domitian, the translation of the crown of France from Meroveus his Race unto Pepin and from his descendants unto Hugh Capet. Below this are the names of Peter D [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Li Giardini di Roma con Priv. del’S. Pont l’anno 1683

      1683 - "Li Giardini di Roma con le loro piante alzate e vedute in prospettiva disegnate ed intagliate da Gio. Battista Falda. Nuovamente dati alle stampe, con direttione, e cura di Gio: Giacomo de Rossi, alla Pace, all’Insegna di Parigi in Roma con Priv. del’S. Pont l’anno 1683" In-folio oblungo, frontespizio, antiporta incisa da Arnold Van Westerhout da disegno di G.B. Manelli e 19 tavole, di cui 14 incise in rame da Giovan Battista Falda e 5 da Simone Felice. Legatura moderna in mezza pelle, titolo in oro al dorso. Splendido esemplare della seconda edizione dell’opera, datata 1683, con le tavole nel primo stato di due prima della numerazione dei fogli. Magnifiche prove, impresse su carta vergata coeva, con ampi margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. L’espressione "nuovamente dati alle stampe" indicherebbe l’esistenza di una prima edizione dell’opera, che è sicuramente successiva al 1677 perché non compare nell’Indice di De Rossi di quell’anno. Tenuto conto che Falda muore a Roma nell’agosto del 1678, senza dubbio l’opera fu pubblicata postuma. Questa seconda edizione datata 1683 è sconosciuta al Bellini che anzi ritiene da scartare la datazione – proposta da Brunet - al 1683 perché in quella data A. van Westerhout era appena sedicenne e quindi sarebbe stato troppo giovane per incidere la meravigliosa antiporta. Stabilisce però un sicuro terminus ante quem, il 1689, ovvero l’anno di morte di Innocenzo XI a cui l’opera è dedicata. Dimensioni varie, in folio oblungo, margini esterni 465x365. Title: Li Giardini di Roma con le loro piante alzate e vedute in prospettiva disegnate ed intagliate da Gio. Battista Falda. Nuovamente dati alle stampe, con direttione, e cura di Gio: Giacomo de Rossi, alla Pace, all’Insegna di Parigi in Roma con Priv. del’S. Pont l’anno 1683. Gardens of Rome with their plants raised and views in perspective drawn and engraved by Giovanni Battista Falda . Oblong folio , title page, frontispiece engraved by Arnold van Westerhout after a drawing by G.B. Manelli and 19 plates, 14 of which are engraved in copper by Giovan Battista Falda and 5 by Simone Felice. Modern half leather binding, gold title to spine. A wonderful example of the second edition of the work, dated 1683, with the plates in the first state of two before the numbering of the sheets. Magnificent impressions, printed on contemporary laid paper, with wide margins, in excellent conditions. . The term "nuovamente dati alle stampe" would indicate the existence of a first edition of the work, which is definitely next to 1677 because it does not appear in the Index of the publisher De Rossi of that year. As Giovan Battista Falda died in Rome in August of 1677, there are no doubt that the work was published posthumously. This second edition dated 1683 is unknown to Bellini, that believes unwrapped dating - proposed by Brunet - 1683 because on that date A. van Westerhout was just sixteen, and then it would have been too young to engrave the wonderful allegoric title page. A magnific set of the roman gardens of Falda. Bartsch 1, 2 e 56-70; TIB 056-076 I/II; Brunet, volume 2, p. 1171; Bellini 213-227; Nagler, vol. 4, p. 447.

        Rerum Germanicarum Sub Matthia, Ferdinandis II. & III. IMPP. Gestarum, Libri LV.

      - Nuremberg , & Framkfurt, C. S.: Froberger, 1683. Francofurti ad Moenvm: Typis exscripti Wolfgangi Hoffmani, Impensa Matthaei Meriani, 1646-50. Two volumes, folio, [xl], 8, 1154, [21], [3] pp.; [xxxiv], 984, [20] pp., woodcut headpieces, tailpieces, and initials, engraved title-pages, vignette on printed titles, four illustrations in text, engraved portrait of Lotichius, and 115 engraved plates the vast majority of which are double-page, including six maps, and six four-page folding views of battles. Contemporary paneled calf, roll-tolled in gilt and blind with fleuron cornerpieces in blind, six raised bands with seven elaborately gilt compartments, title stamped in gilt to two compartments, armorial centerpiece in top compartment and calligraphic monogram at tail, marbled edges and endpapers. Joints, bands, and extremities a bit rubbed, boards slightly scufffed with a few small areas of superficial worming, small tears in backstrips of both volumes at head and tails. The text is printed on inferior stock with light to moderate foxing and some minor internal defects (small wormhole, faint dampstains, one small burn hole, a few trivial wax stains), plates are printed on high quality hand-made paper, and are completely clean and bright, overall a very good set. First edition. This is a rare copy of a massive chronicle covering the reigns of three Hapsburg rulers, with detailed coverage of the 30 Years War. At least as important, it is a book full of wonderful engravings that provide a convincing view of the Medieval cities and other environs where the events in the present account unfold. The first of our Hapsburgs , Matthias (1557-1619), a son of the German emperor Maximilian II, showed an early aptitude for political affairs and was king of Hungary and Bohemia (both then in the Hapsburg realm) long before, on his brother's death, he succeeded in 1612 to power in Austria in the position of German Emperor. Matthias being childless, was followed by his cousin Ferdinand II, who was immediately challenged by Frederick of the Palatinate, whom the Bohemian Protestants favored for king and emperor. This contest triggered the 30 Years War, which drew in most of Europe. The conflict raged during much of the reign of Ferdinand III (ruled 1637-57), although he was anxious to procure peace, which was arranged (with no clear winner) in 1648, two years after our author began to publish his history. A revered physician and professor of medicine, Johann Peter Lotichius (or Lotich, 1598-1669) was appointed official historian of the German Empire. Amoung his publications are medical treatises, Latin poems, a work in praise of women, and a general imperial history beginning with Caesar and ending with Ferdinand II. The present work is most valued for its engravings, done by Matthaeus Merian (1593-1650), who was largely responsible for two of the most famous illustrated series ever published. The first, the "Theatrum Europaeum," was a massive set of 21 large folio volumes with a great deal of historical text punctuated with breathtaking engraved views. The second, called in aggregate simply the "Topographia," is a series comprising 30 folio volumes issued between 1642-88 and containing the largest number of engraved views of towns, villages, and castles ever assembled (Merian was responsible for the plates in the first 19 volumes, while his son and namesake furnished the others). In the present work is the same kind of artistry that made Merian famous in these other, larger undertakings. Here, as in the other series, the intricately realized city views (not infrequently seen as the focus of animated battle scenes), are exceptionally fine in detail and delicacy, achieving success in conveying a strong sense of place and atmosphere that earlier atlases full of urban views did not approach. As with all of the Merian topographical works, this one has several exceptionally fine views of mostly walled cities and towns that appear to be remarkable in the [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Der Churfürstl. Sächs. Handelstadt Leipzigk Kauf- Und Handels-Recht

      [Leipzig]; Christolph Günther, 1683. Boards bound with Latin missal with musical notation. 16mo. (4) , 132, 4 pages. Only edition. In German. A compendium of regulations of the City of Leipzig. Of special interest are the edicts concerning Jews: "Leipziger Juden-Ordnung de anno 1682." The relationship between this city in Saxony and the Jews is an anomaly. On the one hand, Jews were banished from Saxony in 1430 - (it took three centuries for them to be readmitted to Leipzig) . On the other hand, on account of the seasonal Leipzig Fair, the number of Jewish merchants present in the City would swell to the point that these visitors were formally authorized to conduct gatherings in their own prayer-rooms ("Judenschulen") . Indeed, permitted to attend the Fair were not only German Jews, but Jews of Eastern Europe as well. In the present text, Johann-Georg III, Duke of Saxony, mandates several laws concerning Jewish tradesmen and the nature of Jewish participation in the Fair. In order to attend, the Jew required attestation to his professional honesty ("ein Ehrlicher Handelsmann") (par. 1) ; he was forbidden to lodge in the suburbs (par. 2) ; and at all times, he must be in possession of his various individual passes (pars. 3-6) . Also, legal-clauses are addressed to the wives, children and servants of the Jewish tradesmen visiting (pars.10-12) . Of peculiar note: Jewish musicians were barred from trading altogether (par. 21) . See JE, Vol. VII, pp. 673-4. Subjects: German Law. Books before 1700. OCLC lists 14 copies worldwide. Backstrip detached. Binding very solid. Paper missal over boards torn in places and foxed. All edges lightly bumped. Pages lightly foxed around text throughout, fresh and clean otherwise. Good condition. (GER-38-46)

Nell'angolo in basso a destra è riportato il titolo all'interno dell'ampio cartiglio, decorato da un felino e due uomini. Giacomo Cantelli nacque a Vignola, come ribadisce con la sua firma, e divenne il primo cartografo ufficiale della Corte di Modena, nel 1685, quando il Duca Francesco II lo nominò cartografo e custode della biblioteca. Copper engraving, mm 530x410. Highly fascinating example in extremely decorative antique colouring of this scarce map extending from Sumatra to the Bengala river and China river.

In bottom right corner a decorative cartouche, surmounted with two figures in Asian garb and a leopard. From Il Mercurio Geografico, printed by De Rossi. Giacomo Cantelli was born in Vignola, as he remarked with his signature, and was the first official cartographer of the Court of Modena, in 1685, when the Duke Francis II appointed him geographer.

Mascella superiore testa aperta e la coda con lacune. Stessa mascella inferiore divisa coda. Anche se l'autore definisce una storia di cavalleria e le sue leggi e le norme, si concentra sulla cavalleria come prova inconfutabile della nobiltà, e come si distingue nel stemmi appartenenti all'antica cavalleria. La storia degli ordini cavallereschi e il loro impatto sulla nobiltà è particolarmente dettagliato. L'autore non si ferma nel suo studio di Francia e si è diffuso in Europa. Il libro contiene molti dettagli storici sul tema di grande interesse. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition, après l'originale parue en 1677.

L'histoire des ordres de chevalerie et leurs conséquences sur la noblesse est plus particulièrement détaillé. L'auteur ne s'est pas arrêté dans son étude à la France et l'a étendue à l'Europe.

Block, dedication (2 ff.), preface by the author, full-page illustration, poems, blank page, full-page illustration (Last Supper), text (see below). - Only edition of a copiously illustrated engraved German devotional work, published by the engraver, and with text by the Augustine preacher Fortunatus Faber: an early imitation (heretofore unrecognized) of the popular French Tableau de la Croix by François Mazot (1651), which itself was at least in part based on Dutch sources. Designed to be viewed as double-page openings and thus numbered as single units, the first 40 leaves show on the versos the various stages of Mass, each engraving including at top, perched on clouds, a pair of typological vignettes showing the Old Testament prefiguration and its fulfillment in the life of Christ. The facing pages contain various prayers, flanked by standing figures. While the main illustration sequence of both versos and rectos follows Mazot?s (with an occasionally variant order of the figures on the rectos), the addition of O.T. prefigurations in the cloud vignettes, labeled Vorbedeutung and Erfüllung (prefiguration and realization) depart from the French original, which shows cloud scenes from the N.T. only; and German verse distichs explain each scene, undescribed in Mazot?s version. Prayers and text, in Latin and French in the Mazot prayer book, are entirely in German here. Acentral section with four leaves of prayers and Litany, illustrated with Saints and two full-page portraits of Jesus and Mary, is also modeled on the Tableau, as is the final section with the Penitential Psalms and border illustrations of numerous small scenes showing the life of David and various scenes from the Old and New Testaments. The illustrations appear here, however, in a different order. Some but not all of Wening?s illustrations are copies in reverse of the French model. Like the preliminary leaves, the last 3 leaves are new to this German version, for they allude to contemporary events: the Ottoman siege of Vienna in 1683. The first page shows the victorious Christians routing the Turks in battle, with an angel bearing a banner lettered ?Gebett wider den Türcken? (Prayer Against the Turks), and his horn blasting the word Victoria; on the verso the text of a prayer (of St. Augustine) is flanked by two chained Turks, their scimitars broken at their feet. Michael Wening, a native of Nürnberg [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Legatura ottocentesca in mezza-pelle chiara con tiolo, autore e filetti in oro al dorso. Piatti foderati da carta marmorizzata coeva. Qualche strofinatura e difetto. Due piccolo timbretti ottocenteschi al frontespizio che attestano come l’opera appartenesse alla collezione bolognese Magnanini e ceduto in quanto duplicato nel 1890. Un leggerissimo ed ininfluente alone al margine esterno alto del volume, spesso praticamente invisibile e nel complesso ininfluente e per il resto esemplare in buone-ottime condizioni di conservazione di questo importantissimo testo della storia della medicina endocrinologica, scritto dal grande anatomista e fisiologo svizzero, celebre per i suoi studi sul pancreas ed il duodeno, Johann Konrad Brunner (Diessenhofen 16 January 1653 – Mannheim 2 October 1727). Prima rara edizione, tre soli esemplari censiti in ICCU, di questo studio dedicato all’anatomia e fisiologia del pancreas. L’autore fu tra i primi ad avvicinarsi alla scoperta del diabete portando avanti esperimenti pionieristici sulle secrezioni pancratiche. Nei suoi esperimenti venne aiutato da un altro celebre medico svizzero, Johann Konrad Peyer che fu il primo a descrivere i follicoli linfoidi nel piccolo intestino nel 1677 e non a caso questo scritto contiene al suo interno anche una parte della corrispondenza fra Preyer e Brunner. L’autore studiò medicina a Schaffhausen, Strasbourgo, Amsterdam, Londra e Parigi. In particolare nei primi anni di formazione fu allievo di Johann Jakob Wepfer (1620-1695) che fra l’altro era anche il suo padrino. Conseguito il dottorato in medicina nel 1672 a Strasburgio. Dal 1686 ricoprì la prestigiosa cattedra di anatomia e fisiologia di Heidelberg. Nel 1716, Brunner venne nominato medico personale dell’Elettore del Palatinato, Carlo Filippo III. Nella sua vita ottenne numerossimi riconoscimenti e venne nominato anche cavaliere con il titolo di "Brunn von Hammerstein".

        De natuurkunde uit ondervindingen opgemaakt. Uit het Engels vertaald door een liefhebber der natuurkunde.Amsterdam Isaak Tirion, 1751. 3 volumes. 4to. With 114 folding engraved plates. Contemporary half-calf.

      - Bierens de Haan 1178-1180; DSB IV, pp. 43-46; STCN (12 copies, 6 incomplete). Second edition in Dutch of a syllabus of lectures by a British natural philosopher, reprinting the first two volumes and adding a third volume, appearing here in translation for the first time. The son of Huguenot refugees, Desaguliers (1683-1744) studied at Christ Church, Oxford and succeeded James Keill as lecturer in experimental philosophy at Hart Hall. "Desaguliers' practical abilities aroused the Royal Society's interest soon after his arrival in London at Newton's suggestion, he was invited to repeat some of Newton's experiments on heat; before long he had become a de facto curator of experiments" (DSB). Desaguliers was highly skilled in practical mechanics, improving numerous devices, and described and demonstrated a great number of experiments. For the benefit of his auditors, Desaguliers published a number of his lectures in 1717 and in 1719 other lectures were published in an unauthorized edition which Desaguliers denounced. Only in 1734 did the first official volume of lectures appear, including a simple treatment of Newton's system of the world and a description and a description of Ralph Allen's railway in Bath. The second volume appeared in 1746. "Desaguliers attributed the ten-year delay before the appearance of his second tome to his desire to improve the treatment of machines, especially waterwheels Continuing with mechanics, in seven lectures, he discussed impact and elasticity, vis viva and momentum, heat, hydrostatics and hydraulics, pneumatics, meteorology, and more machines. This second volume entitles Desaguliers to be considered a forerunner of the more advanced knowledge of machinery that characterized the Industrial Revolution" (DSB).With some spotting throughout and the bindings rubbed. The privilige of volume 1 is bound after instead of before the contents; volume 2 with a small wormhole in the lower margin not affecting the text and a hole in the lower margin on pp. 279-301. A good copy of this interesting work on applied physics with attractive engravings.

        Description de la Louisiane, nouvellement decouverte au Sud-O

      1683 - The exceedingly rare first edition, complete with the important map, first to name Louisiana. 1683. Paris. Widow of Sebastian Hure. 12mo (6 x 3”). [12], 312, 107 pp. + folding map. Contemporary calf, raised bands to spine, tooled in gilt, red morocco lettering piece, boards with blind tooled fillet, nicely restored. A wide margined copy, not tempered with by 19th century French binders as it is sometimes the case; a fine copy of the important map, newly mounted on a stub, very clean and in a very strong impression. First edition. Hennepin (1626 – c.1701) was a Franciscan missionary and explorer; he received orders to travel to Canada in an expedition approved by the powerful Minister Colbert and commanded by the King of France, accompanying Rene Robert Cavelier, Sieur de la Salle, recently appointed to the governorship of Fort Frontenac, in Nouvelle France. In 1675 they set sail, the vessel carried also Francois de Laval de Montmorency, Bishop of Quebec, whose acquaintance proved useful in Canada. Upon making port in the French dominions of Canada, Hennepin began travelling without comfort throughout the region, providing us testimony of his explorer spirit, his luggage often being carried by dogs, at other times by canoe (Catholic Encyclopedia); these experiences gained him knowledge on the language and customs of the natives. In 1679, Hennepin joined the expedition led by La Salle through the Great Lakes; it is during this expedition that the Niagara Falls and the Saint Anthony Falls (Minneapolis) were discovered. In 1683, Hennepin’s account was published, giving us with the first report of Niagara Falls, the first description of Louisiana, the first account of the headwaters of the Mississippi above the Wisconsin and the first map to name Louisiana. “This is the earliest printed account of La Salle's 1678-79 expedition to Illinois (and the building of Fort Crevecoeur), written by the explorer's close companion, Father Hennepin. It is the first to relate Hennepin's travels up the Mississippi, his discovery of the Falls of St. Anthony, and his captivity among the Sioux. It is also the first to describe Niagara Falls and to use the name Louisiana. The Description is considered Hennepin's most accurate work. A Recollect missionary who spent 11 years in America, he was one of the great pioneers of exploration in the western Great Lakes and the upper Mississippi.” (Nebenzahl). The map, Carte de la Nouvelle France et de la Louisiane, is remarkably important, it’s influence cannot be overstated as it is the first map to name Louisiana. Engraved by Roussel and embellished with a cartouche by N. Guerard. A rare book in the market, especially when complete with the map. Until 1999 (the Siebert Sale, Sotheby’s New York, Oct 28, lot 660, u$s 48,875), no copy is registered at auction for over 25 years (AE). Nebenzahl offered a copy in 1979 for 5,500 u$s. Sabin, 31347.

        Emblemata amatoria. Emblemes d'amour en quatre langue.London, "Chez l'Amoureux", [ca. 1690]. 8vo. With engraved title-page, 45 engraved emblems by Jan van Vianen and 46 engraved leaves with a poem facing the emblems and title-page. Contemporary calf with gold-tooled spine and sides.

      - Landwehr, Emblem and fable books, 216; Praz, pp. 127-131 & 323; De Vries, Emblemata 232 & p. 43. First edition published in the Netherlands of a wholly engraved love emblem book. It contains 45 engraved emblems, with the epigrams in four languages (Latin, Italian, French and Dutch) on the opposite page. Between 1683 and 1714 at least five editions were published at London with the emblems engraved by Philip Ayres, based on the love emblems of Heinsius, Crispyn de Passe's Thronus Cupidinis, and the Amorum Emblemata by Otto Vaenius. The plates of the present edition however, were newly engraved by the Dutch artist Jan van Vianen (ca. 1660-1726), who went to England in his youth. According to Praz, Ayres worked directly from the originals, so his plates were in reverse, while Jan van Vianen probably worked from the Ayres-plates, getting them "right" again. However, Vianen adapted them freely and showed better workmanship and a good sense of perspective which was entirely lacking in Ayres's plates.With bookplates. Only slightly browned with a few small spots and a small tear in the first two leaves. Binding rubbed along the extremities. Overall a very good copy.

Menestrier de la Compagnie de Jésus

      1 vol. in-folio relié , rel. d'époque pleine basane marron, dos à 6 nerfs ornés (fleurons) A Paris, chez François Coustelier, rue Saint-Jacques, à l'image Saint Hilaire, 1683, 10 ff. n. ch. (titre, tables, Introduction), 2 pl. dépliantes gravées par Iollain, 60 pp., 2 ff. n. ch. (quartiers du Duc de Chartres), 1 pl. dépliante (quartiers de Dame de Noyelle), 100 ff. (paginés 119) Rare exemplaire bien complet des deux planches gravées et à toutes marges de Jollain et du tableau des quartiers de Magdeleine de Noyelle (non signalé par Paul Allut dans sa savante étude sur l'oeuvre du P. Menestrier) ; manquent seulement, comme souvent, les 2 ff. de la table des rois. On citera la longue analyse proposée par Paul Allut dans ses "Recherches sur la vie et sur les Oeuvres du P. Claude François Menestrier" : "Ce volume est divisé en deux parties, comme le titre l'indique : la première, De l'Origine et de l'Usage des quartiers pour les preuves de noblesse" est du P. Menestrier. 7 ff. non chiffrés pour la table alphabétique des tableaux généalogiques et pour l'extrait du privilège ; 2 ff. non chiffrés pour l'introduction à l'Origine des quartiers et des preuves de noblesse ; après "De l'Origine, de l'usage et de la pratique des quartiers et lignes pour establir la noblesse et la descendance des personnes", 60 pp. A la fin, 6 ff. non chiffrés pour les soixantes quartiers paternels et maternels de M. le duc de Chartres, et pour la table des rois, princes et seigneurs dont les quartiers généalogiques sont dans le volume. Signature A-P. ; écus armoriés dans le texte. Entre les pp. 6, 7, 8 et 9 [ avant la p. 1 dans notre exemplaire ] sont deux miniatures extraites par le P. Menestrier d'une ancien terrier du comte de Clermont en Beauvoisis La première représente l'hommage au roi Charles V environné des princes de sa maison et des seigneurs de sa Cour, par Louis II, duc de Bourbon, pour le Comte de Clermont ; l'autre est l'entrevue d'Isabeau de Valois, douairière de Bourbon, avec la reine Jeanne, sa fille, au milieu d'une forêt près du château de Clermont. Dans ces deux miniatures, les seigneurs et les dames de la cour sont distingués par leurs armoiries, que les uns et les autres portent sur leurs cottes d'armes et sur leurs robes. La description qui en été faite par le P. Menestrier donne le nom et la qualité de tous ces personnages, d'après leurs blasons. Ces miniatures, gravées sur les originaux par Jollain, sont curieuses à cause des costumes du quinzième sièle qu'elles nous ont conservés. ... La seconde partie, la première énoncée dans le titre, est l'oeuvre de Jean Le Laboureur, qui mourut pendant qu'elle étoit sous presse. Il n'ya a qu'un faux-titre et pas de frontispice. Le dernier f. est chiffré 119, mais il y a erreur dans la pagination ; cette partie n'a réellement que 100 ff. Le cahier S suit immédiatement le cahier I. Malgré cette interruption dans les signatures, et les erreurs dans la pagination que j'ai indiquées, le volume est complet". Allut précise que "tous les bibliographes, depuis le P. Nicéron, donnent au P. Menestrier La cour du roy Charles V surnommé le Sage, et celle de la reyne Jeanne de Bourbon, son épouse ; Paris, Jollain, 1683, in-folio ou in-12. Ils ont répété, sans examen peut-être, ce qu'a dit le Journal des Scavans en rendant compte de la découverte faite par le P. Menestrier. Je n'ai jamais vu l'édition in-folio, à moins qu'on n'ait voulu désigner les "Tableaux généalogiques" ; j'en dis autant de l'in-12, et je ne puis admettre l'existence de ces deux édition : je suis porté à croire qu'elles ne sont autre chose que les figures gravées in-fol. par Jollain, placées par le P. Menestrier, avec l'explication qu'il en a donnée, parmi les additions, qu'il a faites au livre de Le Laboureur, et qu'elles n'ont jamais été publiées à part". Bon état (mq. en coiffes, rel. frottée avec petit mq. en coupes, petites piqûres de vers en dos et queue sans atteinte au texte, sans les 2 ff. de la table des Rois, restauration au tableau de Dame Noyelle), pour ce rare exemplaire richement illustré de plus de 1600 blasons gravés sur bois.

[xvi], 289, [7] pp., including cancel title, title within 2-line rule border, with the 3 final advertisment leaves. Contemporary calf (upper hinge repaired). Internally only little browned. Provenance: The library of Hugh Selbourne (small stamp to title verso). A fine, crisp and unmarked copy. ----Norman 308; Heirs of Hippocrates 565; Wing B3993; Fulton 146b; Garrison-Morton 861; NLM/Krivatsy 1708; Waller 1388; Wellcome II, p.223 (1684 ed.); Cushing B579. - FIRST EDITION, second issue of "the first analysis of blood, Boyle's Memoirs may be considered the first scientific study in physiological chemistry, exhibiting methods which have become universally adopted." (Garrison & Morton). The present work is Boyle's most important medical contribution and is one of the first to deal with the scientific analysis of the blood. Bloodletting was still quite common at the time, so Boyle had little difficulty obtaining blood for his experiments. In his analysis of the blood, Boyle includes its properties of taste, temperature, combustibility, and weight and also mentions its serous and red portions, volatile and fixed salts, oil, mucus content, etc. He discusses human and animal blood, and describes a series of experiments to test the anticoagulating properties of various substances. Boyle also provides a series of remedies prepared from blood for a wide variety of ailments from hysteria and epilepsy to coughs and other respiratory complaints." (Heirs of Hippocrates 565). Very Good.

[Contemporary Account of the Rye House Plot Intended to Assassinate King Charles II, with the Last Speeches of the Conspirators William, Lord Russell and Algernon Sidney Delivered Before Their Executions].

It appears to have been founded on Anti-Catholic sentiments (which would have been shared by Sir Thomas Phillipps later), which feared that Charles II was too closely allied to the Catholic rulers of Europe. An extremist Whig group plotted to hide troops in Rye House, a fortified castle in Hertfordshire, in order to ambush the king and duke as they passed on their way to the horse races at Newmarket. However, a fire in Newmarket caused their plans to change and the plotters were exposed, put on trial and imprisoned or executed. The present manuscript contains at its end the speeches made by two of the group at their executions. William, Lord Russell [1639-1683], M.P. for Bedfordshire, denies knowing of any plot, or having ever seen or spoken with the man who denounced him, but with resolution to his fate: "I have done with this world, and go to a better asking only that all sincere protestants may love one another, and not make way for popery by their Animosities." The speech of Algernon Sidney [1623-1683], M.P. and Baltic Ambassador, is more a formal anti-Catholic essay, citing the insurrection against Nero, the Slaughter of Caligula, or Domitian, the translation of the crown of France from Meroveus his Race unto Pepin and from his descendants unto Hugh Capet. Below this are the names of Peter D.

        SWABIA / SCHWABEN, GERMANY: THE CIRCLE OF SWABIA SUBDIVIDED INTO ALL THE TERRITORIES.

      London: William Berry [circa ] 1683 - Copper engraving with original colour in outline, printed from two plates, set together (trimmed to platemark, with a tiny loss of margins of the image and letters, old repaired tear in the cartouche in the left-hand side, otherwise in a good condition), A very rare map shows Swabia in the southwestern Germany, with Suttgart in the middle. While many maps were made to showcase this key region during this era, the preset map is exceptional in that it is a rare, large English map. Its author, William Berry (1647 - 1708), was one of the leading figures in great revival in English cartography that occurred in Restoration Era England. He carved out a niche for himself in the London print world by making attractive and high quality maps, based on authoritative sources. In this particular case, he used the advanced cartography of Nicolas Sanson, the late French royal cartography. Most of his maps were both sold separately and included in composite atlases. While Berry was financially successful, he ran a ‘boutique’ business (as opposed to driving mass production) and most of his maps are today quite scarce.

        The Memoires of Sir James Melvil of Hal-Hill: Containing an Impartial Account of the most Remarkable Affairs of State During the last Age, not mention'd by other Historians: More particularly Relating to the Kingdoms of England and Scotland, Under the Reigns of Queen Elizabeth, Mary Queen of Scots, and King James

      London: Printed by E.H. for Robert Boulter at the Turks-head in Corn-hill, against the Royal-Exchange, 1683. First edition of this charged political memoir, offering insight into the courts of Mary Stuart, Elizabeth I, and James I. As a teenager, James Melville was dispatched to France to serve as a page for Mary, Queen of Scots. He soon became a diplomat, sent on missions for Henry II, and later served in Mary's household in Scotland. The controversy over Mary's engagement to Lord Darnley, which complicated the royal line of succession and alarmed the English, prompted Mary to send Melville as her emissary to Elizabeth I: "I was dispatched to England, [w]ith these following Instructions out of the Queens own mouth, to deal with the Queen of England . . . I found her Majesty walking in an Alley. And after I had kissed her hand, and presented my Letter of Credence, I told her Majesty in French the effect of my Commission, as near to the aforesaid Instructions as I could, and sometimes being interrupted by her demands, I answered as I judged most pertinent. . . . Her first demand was concerning the Letter, that the Queen [Mary] had written to her with such despiteful Language, that she thence conjectured all friendship and familiarity to have been given up. Which made her resolve never to write any more, but another as despiteful." Over the years, Melville grew close to Mary and her son James, and eventually served as advisor to James VI (later James I) after he ascended to the throne. This work, unknown until after Melville's death, was published by his grandson after the manuscript was discovered at Edinburgh Castle. First state, with page 65 misnumbered 67, and page 128 misnumbered 118. ESTC R201. A beautiful copy of a key primary source for the court of Mary, Queen of Scots, scarce in unrestored contemporary calf. Folio in fours, contemporary full speckled calf, raised bands, red morocco spine label lettered in gilt, spine ruled and ornamented in gilt, all edges marbled. Preliminaries include letters from George Scott and James Melville; index and glossary of Scottish words and phrases at rear.
