The book contains many historical details on the subject of great interest. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Reliure en pleine basane blonde d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Mors supérieur ouvert en tête et queue avec manques. Idem mors inférieur fendu en queue. Bien que l'auteur établisse une histoire de la chevalerie et de ses lois et règles, il s'intéresse essentiellement à la chevalerie en tant que preuve indéniable de noblesse, et comment on distingue dans les blasons l'appartenance ancienne à la chevalerie. 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. L'ouvrage regroupe maints détails historiques sur le sujet du plus grand intérêt.

        Traité de l'organe de l'ouie contenant la structure les usages & les mala EDITION ORIGINALE

      à Paris: Chez Estienne Michallet, 1683. Fine. Chez Estienne Michallet, à Paris 1683, In 12 (9x17cm), (24) 210pp., relié. - First edition, very rare. Illustrated with 16 folding plates unsigned. Bound in full brown sheepskin contemporary. Back tooled raised. Head cover and a restored area. Work towards the middle of the book in high margin, some worm inconsequential, but the worms have eaten the seams and are therefore vulnerable to p. 20 to p. 200 the problem from fading. The last print was cut too short and lacks the last few lines of text. This is the first scientific monograph of the structure of the ear and its diseases, it is therefore very valuable, and was crucial to the understanding of this little studied organ before. It is also the first work of this renowned anatomist and physiologist who was the teacher of the dolphin and taught in the garden of the king. Stamp of Doctor Maurice Petit de Montereau. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Coiffe de tête restaurée ainsi qu'un coin. Travail de vers au milieu de l'ouvrage en marge haute, quelques trous de vers sans conséquence, mais les vers ont rongé les coutures et elles sont de ce fait fragilisées de la p. 20 à la p. 200, le problème allant s'estompant. La dernière gravure a été coupée trop courte et il manque les dernières lignes de texte. Il s'agit de la première monographie scientifique de la structure de l'oreille et de ses maladies, elle est de ce fait fort précieuse, et fut déterminante pour la compréhension de cet organe peu étudié jusqu'alors. C'est par ailleurs le premier ouvrage de cet anatomiste et physiologiste réputé qui fut le professeur du dauphin et enseigna au jardin du roi. Cachet du Docteur Maurice Petit de Montereau.

        The Test or, Tryal of the Goodness & Value of Spiritual-Courts

      1683. An Important Restoration-Era Critique of Great Britain's Ecclesiastical Courts Hickeringill, Edm[und] [1631-1708]. The Test or, Tryal of the Goodness & Value of Spiritual-Courts in Two Queries I. Whether the Statute of I Edw. 6.2. be in Force (Against Them) at This Day, Obliging Them to Summon and Cite the Kings Subjects (Not in Their Own Names and Styles, As Now They do, But) In the Name and Stile of the Kings Majesty (As in the Kings Courts Temporal) and Under the Seal of the Kings Arms? II. Whether Any of the Cannon-Law, Or How Much of the Cannon-Law is (At this Day) the Law of England, In Courts Christian, Highly Necessary to be Perused by All Those That Have Been, Or May be Cited to Appear at Doctors Commons. London: Printed by George Larkin, 1683. [iv], 22, 18 pp. Lacking final leaf, a blank. Folio (11-3/4" x 5-1/2"). Stab-stitched pamphlet bound into recent cloth, gilt title to spine, endpapers renewed. Negligible light rubbing to extremities. Light toning to text, some edgewear and light soiling to first and final leaves, faint dampstaining in a few places, chip to fore-edge of leaf with some loss to side-notes. Early manuscript page numbers added to upper corners of leaves, showing this item was once part of a bound volume, interior otherwise clean. Ex-library. Bookplate to front pastedown. * First edition. Britain's ecclesiastical courts received a great deal of scrutiny in early years of the Restoration. Dissenters, Parliamentarians and others who feared the power of the Church of England under the control of a Catholic or crypto-Catholic king, believed it was necessary to limit the scope of its courts. The work of an idiosyncratic Anglican Churchman who supported the Commonwealth, Hickeringill's pamphlet was one of the most important and legally detailed contributions to this argument. Recognized as an important work, a second edition was issued in 1683, a third in 1706. All are scarce. OCLC locates 2 copies of the first edition in North American law libraries (University of Michigan, University of Pennsylvania). English Short-Title Catalogue R2631.

        [Head title] Curiosa relatione del viaggio fatto da quel coraggioso Soldato che portò fuori di Vienna le Lettere à S.A. di Lorena, e riportò le risposte, con tutto ciò che gli è successo in quello. Tradotta fedelmente sa una stampata in lingua tedesca. Venetia, per il Boso, 1683.

      Small 4to. Pp. (8). With engraved plate depicting a portrait of the author in his Turkish disguise and with the city of Vienna in the background. Contemporary limp vellum, covers ruled and decorated in gilt with fleur - de - lis. Bookplate (Paul de Fleury). Originally published in Vienna 1683. A scarce news pamphlet which tells the story of Kulczycki (1640 - 94), a Polish Lithuanian nobleman who was considered a hero for his actions during the Battle of Vienna in 1683. He volunteered as courier of Prince Starhemberg, the commanadant of Vienna, to make contact with the forces of Duke Charles of Lorraine. Disguised as a Turkish soldier Kulczycki left Vienna and managed to cross the enemy lines to meet the Duke, and then return to Vienna with a promise of imminent relief. Because of his message the defenders held out until the allied armies relieved the city on September 12 1683. The text follows with information about Kulczycki's dealings with coffee. According to a legend Kulczycki, as a reward, was allowed to keep large quantities of coffee beans left behind by the beaten Turks as personal booty. He was the founder of the first coffee house in Vienna called "Hof zur Blauen Flasche". Hünersdorff, Coffee Bibl., pp 815 - 6 (a copy with slightly different engraved portrait; also forming the title).

        Alfabeto in sogno esemplare per disegnare

      e. [Bologna: n.p.], 1683 [i.e. c. 1700?] Folio (11 x 15-7/8 inches), (25) ff, consisting of illustrated title-page, dedication leaf (?A svoi scolari?), and 23 leaves, one for each letter of the 23 letter alphabet; engraved throughout. Blind-panelled vellum over boards, bound to style by Byzantium. Inner margins just touched with a few repaired wormholes, nowhere near the image and quite unobtrusive. printed on 18th-century paper from the original plates, an unrecorded restrike edition. An unrecorded reprinting of the great Mitelli alphabet, probably printed c. 1700 in Italy judging by the paper. This wonderful Baroque artist?s model book includes various illustrations for use as drawing models surrounding the letters of the alphabet rendered as variations on the human form, with didactic captions in verse at foot of each leaf. Grove notes (vol. 21, p. 732) that Mitelli was the son of the painter Agostino Mitelli, and owes his reputation to over 500 etched prints of contemporary manners and morals. ?His large print oeuvre, illustrating ceremonies and pageants, warfare, folklore, trades, and religious paintings,, provides a rich cultural source of contemporary Bolognese life... ?

Opera et studio Monachorum Ordinis S. Benedicti e Congregatione S. Mauri. 12 Teile (Bd 3 hat 2 Teile) in 11 Bänden, gebunden in 8 Bänden.

      Paris, Muguet, 1683-1700.. Zus. ca. 20000 S.. Mit Frontispiz (Porträt) in Bd 11, 12 Titelvignetten, 12 gestochenen Kopfleisten, 12 gestochenen Initialen. Gr.-Folio (414 x 266 mm). Marmorierte Kalbslederbände d. Z. auf 6 Bünden, mit Rückentitel und reicher -vergoldung.. Die vorliegende kritische Mauriner-Ausgabe gilt bis heute als vorbildlich, auch und vor allem wegen des 11. Bandes: "Der 11. Bd bringt die v. Mabillon verfaßte Praefatio generalis (...), dann ein ausführl. Leben des hl. A. auf Grund der Studien v. Tillemont, sowie ausgezeichnete Indices über die echten u. über die (...) unechten Schriften." (Buchberger: Kirchl. Handlexikon. S., 411f). Laut Aussage des Vorbesitzers erlitt die Ausgabe in den letzten 50 Jahren einen Wasserschaden, dessen Spuren im Papier noch deutlich zu sehen sind; so sind beinahe alle Bände im unteren Blattdrittel wasserrandig, gelegentlich auch schwach wellig. Die Einbände waren ebenfalls betroffen; auch hier zeigen sich Wasserflecken; wenn es Schäden an der Bindung gab, wurde diese auf höchst professionelle Weise und kaum sichtbar ausgebessert; ansonsten Einbände kaum berieben beziehungsweise mit geringen Kratzspuren. 2 Bände haben ein etwas abweichendes Rückendekor, sind einige Millimeter höher und haben eine lateinische Bandzählung am Rücken; der 11. Band (Register und Vita) ist ca. 2,5 cm höher als die anderen. Die Bände 1-2 sind in 2. Auflage (zuerst 1679) von 1689. Vgl. Brunet I, 557. Zögern Sie bitte nicht, wenn Sie Fragen haben oder z. B. Bilder sehen möchten. Wegen des kolossalen Formats und Gewichts bevorzugt der Antiquar die Selbstabholung des Werks durch den Kunden, welcher im Gegenzug einen Rabatt von EUR 100,- als Anerkennung seiner Mühen erhält; wünscht der Kunde jedoch eine Lieferung im Versand, muß ich entgegen meiner sonstigen Gepflogenheiten für meine Mühen des Versendens EUR 50,- zusätzlich berechnen.

N. for Kettilby, 1683. 179 x 109 mm. Full antique calf, gilt; preserved in a quarter morocco slipcase. Some foxing and dampstaining, but very good. First Edition. Garrison-Morton 4486. Printing and the Mind of Man 159. Sydenham's classic description of gout, based upon his own sufferings, "has never been surpassed" (Copeman, p. 65; also pp. 66-76 and numerous other references). Of the many great works by Sydenham, this is considered his masterpiece, the epitome of the practical case-oriented approach he took, which earned him the title "the English Hippocrates," and which influenced the return to Hippocratic ideals in medical practice in Europe. Sydenham clearly differentiated gout from rheumatism, and the descriptive, clinical portions of his work remain eminently readable today. He recommended a distinctive course of treatment by dietetic restriction, simple cooking, few drugs, and ample, non-alcoholic liquid intake. For acute attack he favored opium and introduced liquid laudanum, which made him famous throughout Europe. He was the first to recognize the association between intellectual ability and gout. Sydenham's book brought out the salient features of gout and its management, and perhaps contributed to the vogue for it in the next century, the so-called "Golden Age of Gout" , when the disease had many fashionable victims, was much in the press, and was a recognized factor in historical events.

        "At the Court of Whitehall the Ninth of January 1683. ? Whereas by the Grace and Blessing of God, the Kings and Queens of this Realm by many Ages past, have had the happiness by their Sacred Touch, and Invocation of the name of God, to cure those who are afflicted with the Disease called the Kings-Evil ? His Majesty was therfore pleased to Declare in Council His Royal Will and Pleasure to be, That ?the times of Publick Healings shall from henceforth be from the feats of All Saints ? till a week before Christmas; and after Christmas until the First Day of March ?"

      London: printed by the assigns of John Bill deceas'd; and by Henry Hills, and Thomas Newcomb, printers to the Kings most excellen t Majesty, 1683. Printed broadside. Woodcut royal arms at head, large decorative initial capital. 1 vols. 14-1/2 x 11-1/4 inches. Backed with tissue, some old dampstaining, some loss at margins but printed area complete except for a very small area of the royal arms. Old folds, rust marks along with marginal wear suggest that this may, at one time, have been "affixt to some conspicuous place" as the text instructs. King's Evil and the Royal Touch From the Middle Ages in England and France it was believed that scrofula, or "the King's Evil," could be cured by the touch of royalty; ceremonies were held in which the King would touch, and "heal," hundreds of afflicted subjects. By the late 1400s it was believed that one could also be cured by touching a type of coin called an angel, which had been touched by the monarch. After angels ceased to be minted in the 1620s the same effect was said to be achieved by touching a gold medallion embossed much like the old coin. Some monarchs touched many people. King Henry IV of France touched up to 1500 at one time. The last English monarch to carry out this practice was Queen Anne, who died in 1714, but it continued in France. Louis XV touched more than 2000 scrofula sufferers, and the last French monarch to do this was Charles X in 1825 (Science Museum, London). Cf. F Barlow, "The King's Evil," The English Historical Review, 95/374 (January 1980), pp 3-27; M Bloch,The Royal Touch: Sacred Monarchy and Scrofula in England and France (London: Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1973). The present broadside, setting the dates for such ceremonies, is rare on the market: no copies are listed for sale, and none have appeared at auction. It also is signed in type by Lord Chief Justice (George) Jeffryes (sic), "The Hanging Judge" amongst others. An interesting manuscript note in a contemporary hand at the lower margin (with significant loss) calls the attention of "All Parsons, Vicars, and Curates" to the regulations set forth in the broadside.

        Quinti Horatii Flacci emblemata

      1683. VAENIUS (i.e. Otto van Veen). Quinti Horatii Flacci emblemata.... [8], 205, [3] pp. With a title-page medallion portrait of Horace, full-page portrait of Veen, and 103 engraved emblems (180 x 150 mm) inspired by texts of Horace and others. 4to., 280 x 225 mm, bound in contemporary vellum, spine lettered in MS, preserved in a green slipcase. Brussels: Franciscum Foppens, 1683. |~||~||~||~||~||~| An excellent copy in original condition of this lavish Flemish emblem book, with the text and plates here reprinted from the enlarged edition of 1612. The engravings are attributed by Nagler and Bryan to Gijsbert van Veen; there are 103 full-page copperplate emblems after designs by Vaenius (Otto van Veen), a teacher of Rubens. The emblems illustrate the texts he selected principally from Horace's Odes and Satires, as well as from other classic authors. The first edition of Veen's "Emblems from Horace" was published in Antwerp in 1607 and contained Latin mottos and quotations only. In the present edition appear Dutch 8-line stanzas by Vaenius, French quatrains (by Leo de Meyere & Claudius de Cordemoy, and 8-line poems in Italian. The Brussels Foppens editions first appeared in 1682; the present volume belongs to a new-title issue of the work (only the date of imprint is changed). Vaenius' "Emblemata Horatiana" was immensely popular, and versions of it exist in almost every European language. Veen (1556-1629), of Leiden origin, is, together with Heinsius, Hooft, Roemer Visscher and Cats, among the most important Dutch emblematists of the 17th-century. His "Emblems from Horace" was his first published work, and remains one of the great classics of the emblematic literature. Bookplate removed, small repaired tear on p. 47, overall in fine state.

The other folding plate depicts a gemma with a triumphus-scene: an emperor with wife and 2 children in a chariot drawn by 2 centaurs; The Dutch classical scholar Gisbertus Cuperus, or Gijsbert Kuiper, (1644-1716) was professor of Latin and Greek literature at the Athenaeum Illustre of Deventer from 1668 till 1681, and at the same time mayor of this old city, which once had been a member of the Hanseatic League.

Jahrhunderts, gleichzeitig ein äußerst seltenes Turcicum-Hungaricum: "Es scheint numehro, als wolte das Welt-erhöhete Teutschland nebst denen benachbarten Christlichen Potentaten und Republiquen, nach getroffenem Armistitio, der gültigen Friedens-Früchte wiederumb geniessen, sonderlich aber der Edle Rhein-Strohm seinen Weinstock und Feigenbaum in Ruhe und Sicherheit wiederumb anbauen, nachdem derselbe einige Jahr hero durch die feindseligen Armeen verwüset und unter die Füsse getreten worden. Hingegen aber muß das bedrängte Ungarn noch immer der blutige Schauplatz Ottomanischer Waffen und zugleich innerlicher Schwürigkeit seyn..." (S. 3). Der angespielte Waffenstillstand war wohl einer der Pakte nach den blutigen Auseinandersetzungen der Franzosen gegen die Deutschen in den Angriffen Ludwigs XIV. vor allem in den Rheinlanden. Der Sonnenkönig hatte den Einfall der Osmanen nach Österreich in der sogenannten Zweiten Wiener Türkenbelagerung (1683) genutzt, um seine Macht im Westen des Heiligen Römischen Reiches auszudehnen, er hatte zwischen 1683 und 1684 Luxemburg erobert, sich mit dem Kurfürsten von Brandenburg Friedrich Wilhelm verbündet, aber mit den spanischen Niederlanden einen Waffenstillstand geschlossen.
