[SIMON (Richard)]
Francfort, chez Frédéric Arnaud, 1684, in 12, de 4ff. 229pp. 1f. de table, 1f. bl., pl. veau époque, dos orné, petite fente aux mors sup. sinon bel exemplaire. Rare édition originale de cette première défense des rites orientaux et des coutumes des chrétiens d'Orient. L'ouvrage, paru sous un pseudonyme, a été censurée, car R. Simon s'y fait l'apologue de l'orthodoxie des Églises d'Orient contre les accusations des théologiens et des missionnaires occidentaux. "J'ai reconnu que la plupart des hérésies qu'on attribue aux peuples du Levant n'ont presque aucun fondement..." Les Eglises d'Orient concernées sont : les Grecs orthodoxes, Les Melchites, Les Géorgiens, les Arméniens, les Mengreliens, les Jacobites, les Nestoriens, les Cophtes, les Ethiopiens, les Indiens ou chrétiens de St Thomas, les Maronites et les Mahometans. Rappelons aussi que Richard Simon est le père de la critique biblique moderne et qu'il étudie dans ce livre pour la première fois les rites des musulmans sans injures ni dénigrement. ¶ cf.

Esquemeling John
London Printed for William Crooke, at the Green Dragon with-out Temple-bar 1684. The first edition in English of each part, three parts in all. With four engraved portraits, four engraved plates and views, and the folding map of Panama, and with one engraving in the text, complete as called for. 4to (23.5 x 18.3 cm), full polished calf to style, the spine with raised bands and a red morocco lettering label gilt. [12] Title and To the reader, 115; 151, [1] ad; 124, [11] Table. A very fine, very pleasing, large, unpressed and especially well preserved copy, clean and crisp throughout. RARE FIRST EDITION OF THE CLASSIC ACCOUNT OF THE BUCCANEERS. A LARGE COPY IN UNUSUALLY FINE CONDITION. "Perhaps no book in any language was ever the parent of so many imitations, and the source of so many fictions as this" (Sabin). Here are the exploits of Henry Morgan, who sacked Panama and absconded without dividing the booty--a transgression of the pirate's honor that Esquemeling could not applaud; here also the vicious Francis L'Ollonois, who tore out the hearts from his still-living victims and ate them; here are countless tortures and robberies, raids and rampages, as related by a reliable witness. For Esquemeling was himself a pirate: he had been sold into slavery in the West Indian plantations, beaten, tortured, and nearly starved to death, and "so I determined, not knowing how to get any living, to enter into the order of the pirates or robbers of the sea." His career lasted from 1666 until he saw the error of his ways and withdrew from the profession in 1672. "Esquemeling's book gives … [Click Below for Full Description]

JAPANESE COURT POLO SCROLL
1684. Ink, brush, & color wash in various colors, gold speckles on edges and endpapers, silk brocade endpapers. Japan: early 19th-century. The equestrian sport of polo, or in Japanese dakyu, is believed to have originated in Central Asia and then spread both to Europe and became "polo," as well as to China and subsequently Japan through the Korean peninsula in the 8th or 9th centuries. In the Nara and Heian periods, the court at the Imperial Palace played dakyu, most notably on the Boys' Day Festival (tango) of 5 May. While dakyu's popularity declined during the Kamakura period, it experienced a resurgence under the reign of Yoshimune Tokugawa (1684-1751), who adopted the game as a form of exercise for cavalry warfare. At this time, it evolved into a recreation closer to lacrosse in which they scooped rather than struck the ball with a gittcho (polo cane). This scroll vividly depicts the Yamagata or Imperial style of play, employing shorter canes and smaller balls, and with both teams shooting at a single goal. Yoshimune, himself an avid horseman, launched several initiatives to improve the stock of horses in Japan. He ordered the importation of Chinese horses and invited horse specialists from China, whose knowledge he considered superior. In 1725, a Dutch groom named Hans Jurgen Keijser (1697?-1735), was solicited by the Shogun himself to come to Japan and share Western methods of horse rearing and equine medicine. Also, at that time, five Dutch horses were transported to Japan for breeding. Despite the strict rules for foreigners, Keijser was afforded … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vitruvius, ( Perrault, M.) Vitruve.
Jean Baptiste Coignard, 1684. Folio, ( 43 x 28 cm), Text in French, (10), 354, (8 index),pp. With frontispice engraved pictorial title by Sébastien Le Clerc , printed device, engraved vignettes, engraved head--piece, 57 full page engraved plates, 7 double page engraved plates. Bound in full early calf, spine with elaborately gilt in compartments, red label and 6 raised bands. Roman architect, engineer, and theorist, whose textbook De Architectura libri decem (Ten Books on Architecture) is the only complete treatise on architecture to survive from Classical Antiquity. It influenced deeply from the Early Renaissance onwards artists, thinkers, and architects, among them Leon Battista Alberti (1404-72), Leonardo Da Vinci (1452-1519), and Michelangelo (1475-1564). Vitruvius was not a master of style - Little is known of Marcus Vitruvius Pollio's life. From De architectura we can conclude that he was trained in a Hellenistic tradition - words like graece and Graecia appear more often in his text than romanus and Roma. He served under Julius Caesar in the African War (46 B.C.) and had a wide knowledge of military engineering and artillery. It has been suggested that Vitruvius was Julius Caesar's chief engineer Mamurra. After Ceasar's death (44 B.C.) Vitruvius was involved in the construction of the Roman water supply under Octavian. No wonder, that Vitruvius praised water as the source of human society and culture. Spine is scuffed and has small losses from ends. Boards show through at corners Overall the leather is in very nice condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

MALNOE (Benjamin de) ].
2 ouvrages en 1 volume in-12. 1). 79pp. (incluant un frontispice gravé inclus dans la pagination). 2). 12ff. 235pp. 2ff. Plein veau, dos à nerfs orné (reliure moderne genre ancien). Réunion de deux ouvrages consacrés aux dernières heures édifiantes de notables de confession protestante, tous deux imprimés à Amsterdam par des huguenots normands exilés. 1). Cet ouvrage est attribué à Benjamin de Malnoë, pasteur au château du Ponthus puis à Sucé-sur-Erdre, lieux de culte des réformés nantais. S'il semble exister une édition antérieure de l'ouvrage, portant le même titre mais imprimée à La Haye par Arnould Leers en 1684, une édition postérieure évoque les "dernières heures de Mademoiselle de la Musse", sans doute liée à la noble maison de la Muce, famille huguenotte nantaise à laquelle appartenait le Château de Ponthus. Jolie page de titre imprimée en rouge et noir. 2). Edition Originale. Ce recueil relate les derniers moments de protestants célèbres, parmi lesquels le pasteur André Rivet (1572-1651), le fondateur de l'église réformée écossaise John Knox (c.1514-1572), Marie II d'Angleterre (1662-1694), etc. Au verso du dernier feuillet, marque d'appartenance manuscrite datée de 1810 d'Alphonse Devisme, demeurant au village de Fresneville et qui promet une bouteille de vin à celui qui lui rapporterait l'ouvrage en cas de perte. 2).

Poole, Matthew
Ultrajecti, sumtibus Johannis Ribbii, Johannis van de Water, & Francisci Halma: sociorum, 1684-86. In this large work, the Annotations of a great number of the older commentators are collected and condensed, in large part a condensation of the still more extensive collection known as the Critici Sacri Matthew Poole’s Synopsis Criticorum (Synopsis of Interpreters) is nothing less than a verse-by-verse summary of the history of interpretation. Poole covers the entire gamut: the old Jewish doctors, the early Church Fathers, Medieval Rabbis, Reformation-era Romanists, Lutherans, and the Reformed. The design was to bring into one view whatever had been written by critics of all ages and nations on the books of Holy Scripture. The work when finally brought out was probably as good as any of the kind can be, and few will deny that it is a very valuable and useful abridgment of the Critici Sacri To illustrate the value of the Synopsis, it was a favorite exegetical resource of Philip and Matthew Henry; and Matthew Henry produced what is in all probability the most important and influential Bible Commentary in the English language: also, Jonathan Edwards, America’s greatest theologian and philosopher, preferred the Synopsis to all other Bible commentaries, and references it more heavily than all of the others combined. 5 volumes Tall folio All Volumes an amateur re-spine with leather & paper covered boards.

BLEGNY, Etienne de;
Paris, Pierre de Bats, 1684 In-12 de (6) ff., 154 pp., veau moucheté, dos à nerfs orné et doré, tranches mouchetées rouges (reliure de l'époque). Troisième édition augmentée. Nombreux en-têtes et lettrines gravés. Frère de Nicolas de Blégny, médecin du Roi, Étienne de Blégny fut, quant à lui, reçu dans la Communauté des maîtres écrivains jurés en 1666, soit l'année précédent la première édition de L'Ortografe française. Il mourra en 1700 avec la satisfaction d'avoir fait avancer l'homogénéisation de cette langue française encore imparfaitement codifiée devenue celle d'un royaume agrandi, dont l'art fait d'ordre et de mesure -en littérature tout particulièrement- exerce en Europe une influence sans précédent. Joli exemplaire relié à l'époque.

Carte di guardia e tagli marmorizzati in coloritura omogenea. Alcuni volumi recano al piatto anteriore la scritta in oro ‘ M. De Prangins’. Ottime condizioni generali, salvo poche cuffie danneggiate. Interni freschi (carte ingiallite in tre voll.) e ben conservati (solo il Tomo I del 1704 ha uno strappo al frontespizio). Tutto il pubblicato (per lo più in prima o seconda edizione): insieme ai volumi curati da Bayle (marzo 1684-febbraio 1687), le continuazioni - intervallate da anni in cui la pubblicazione della rivista venne sospesa - di Daniel de Larroque e Jean Le Clerc (marzo-agosto 1687), Jean Barrin (settembre 1687-aprile 1689), Jacques Bernard (gennaio 1699-dicembre 1710, gennaio 1716-aprile 1718), Jean Le Clerc (maggio-giugno 1718).

SWAMMERDAM, Jan.
1684. MC NH, p. 2055; Hagen II, p. 209; Horn & Schenkling 21795; Nissen, ZBI 4053; STCN (6 copies); for the author: DSB XIII, pp. 168-175. Re-issue of the rare Latin translation first published in Utrecht by Meinardus van Dreunen in 1684, of Swammerdam's famous work on the metamorphosis of insects. Since Aristotle, the theory on insects was based on three suppositions, insects lack internal anatomy, they originate by spontaneous generation and they develop by metamorphosis. The idea of metamorphosis was that a sudden and total change from one kind of creature into another, comparable to the alchemical transmutation of a base metal into gold. Swammerdam's thesis was fundamentally new and significant. He believed all three suppositions to be false and devoted a wide variety of investigations to refute these ideas. Plates a bit browned. Good copy.

Komplett wie hier eine Rarität ersten Ranges. - VD17 23:297907Y; Merill 64; MGG VII, 938; Wolffheim I, 730; Dünnhaupt III, 26 Anmerkung. - "The first book published in Europe devoted entirely to acoustics" (Merrill). - Innerhalb der zehn Bücher umfassenden "Musurgia Universalis" ist die Phonurgia deshalb von besonderer Bedeutung, da sie sich dezidiert der Stimme und Musik widmet und damit den traditionellen theologischen Rahmen des harmonischen Denkens verläßt, das in den anderen neun Büchern dominiert (vgl. Jürgen Strauss). - Wichtig sind die Untersuchungen über Echos und deren Wirkungen am Beispiel der Stadtmauern von Avignon, Dionysii Hauss- oder Kunst-Gebäu in Pavy, Lust-Haus Simonetta in Mailand usw. Kircher wußte, dass die Bildung von Echos durch die Geometrie von Quelle, Reflektor und Hörer bestimmt wird und insbesondere (parabolische) Gewölbe als Reflektoren eine schallbündelnde Wirkung zeigen, die eine Erhöhung der Lautstärke an bestimmten Orten gestatten und damit eine verbesserte Wahrnehmung des Echos (analog zum optischen Sammelspiegel). - Hinzuweisen ist außerdem auf Kircher als Musikt … [Click Below for Full Description]

A Cologne, Balthasar Winfelt [recte: imprimé par Eugène Henri Fricx à Bruxelles], 1684. Schön gebundenes Exemplar der ersten polyglotten Ausgabe von Blaise Pascals einflussreichen moral-theologischen Streitschriften, mit den ersten Übersetzungen ins Spanische und Italienische. Als literarische Meisterwerke und "erstes Musterbeispiel französischer Prosa" (PMM) sind die unter dem Pseudonym Louis de Montalte zwischen dem 23. Januar 1656 und dem 24. März 1657 geschriebenen Briefe selbst von Pascals jesuitischen Gegnern bewundert worden. Der Verfasser griff damit in einen Streit ein, der durch die Verweigerung der Absolution für einen dem Jansenismus nahestehenden Adeligen ausgelöst worden war. Noch im Jahr des Erscheinens kam das Werk auf den Index, was aber seiner Verbreitung und seinem Ruhm wohl nur Vorschub leistete und für Anteilnahme jenseits der Grenzen Frankreichs sorgte. "L'ouvrage le plus lu à l'époque, Les Provinciales ont contribué à imposer un art d'écrire classique" (En Français dans le Texte, 96). - Mit fingiertem Druckort Köln wurde diese seltene viersprachige Edition tatsächlich in Brüssel, oder nach anderen Angaben in Amsterdam, gedruckt. - Gelegentliche Bräunung.

SUETONIUS (SVETONIO)Tranquillus Gaius
apud Fredericum Leonard, 1684. In-8 (mm. 243x178), p. pelle bazana settecentesca (con abras. e piccole manc.), dorso a cordoni con decoraz. e tit. oro su tassello, tagli rossi, pp. (16),857, con una pregevole antiporta figurata inc. in rame. Al fine un poderoso "Index vocabulorum". Vi sono contenuti: "De XII Caesaribus", in otto libri, dedicati a: Julius Caesar - Octavius Augustus - Tiberius Nero - C. Caligula - Tib. Claudius Drusus - Nero Claudius - Ser. Sulpitius Galba - M. Salvius Otho - A. Vitellius - Vespasianus Augustus - Titus Flavius - Domitianus // "De illustribus Grammaticis et de claris Rhetoribus" cum annotationibus doctissimorum virorum, Libri duo // e le "Vite" di: Pub. Terentius Afer - Horatius Flaccus - Annaeus Lucanus - Plinius Secundus - Junius juvenalis - Aulus Persius Flaccus. "Oltre a opere minori in greco e latino, Svetonio scrisse il "De viris inlustribus" e il "De vita Caesarum". Di queste due raccolte di biografie, la prima ci è giunta frammentaria, mentre la seconda è pressochè intera. Il "De viris inlustribus" trattava successivamente le vite di poeti, oratori, storici, filosofi, grammatici e retori; in tal modo costituiva una sorta di storia letteraria di Roma per generi, secondo uno schema biografico. Ce ne è pervenuta gran parte dell'ultima sezione.. Le "Vite" di Svetonio ebbero una straordinaria fortuna, divenendo il modello di tale genere letterario nella tarda antichità e nel Medioevo". Così Diz. Treccani,XI, p. 856. Cfr. Brunet,V,582: "Volume peu commun". Antiporta scurita, con lievi uniformi arross. ma buon esemplare.
