Hédelin, François, Abbé d'Aubignac
London: Printed for the Author, and sold by William Cadman, et al., 1684. First English edition. [viii], 135, [1], 176 pp. 4to. Contemporary mottled calf, rebacked, spine in 6 compartments with raised bands, preserving original black morocco spine panels richly gilt in 4 compartments, with red morocco spine labels to style in the other 2. Small triangular tear to title-page, a few ink stains and a few marginal notes from an early reader. First English edition. [viii], 135, [1], 176 pp. 4to. The Classical Treatise of the 17th-Century French Drama. First English translation of this key treatise which codified the rules of 17th-century French dramatic classicism. It was first published in French as La pratique du théatre in 1657. Congreve owned copies of both the first French and first English editions. Hédelin (1604-1676) was a cleric and author; he enjoyed the patronage of Cardinal Richelieu and began writing his treatise in 1640 under the Cardinal's urging. In his own plays, Hédelin attempted to demonstrate his conservative theories of drama. His friendship with Corneille was broken off in part because of the latter's inconsistent methods and adherence to the classical dramatic models that Hédelin espoused. ESTC R16044; Wing A4185. Provenance: Spencer Compton, 8th Duke of Devonshire (1833-1908, bookplate, shelfmark)

ORBIGNY, Alcide d'.
DSB X, pp. 221-222; Ward 1684; D.A. Young, Geological evidence for the age of the earth, p. 109. Complete first edition, including the tables (often lacking), of a standard work on stratigraphy and palaeontology by the famous Alcide d'Orbigny (1801-1857), "perhaps the most accomplished French paleontologist of the generation following Cuvier" (Young). In this work "he subdivided the Cretaceous System into 'stages', based on the notion that a typical fauna would be annihilated and replaced by a new fauna" (Young). He based his new classification of fossils on his research on geological strata, establishing the vital link between palaeontology and stratigraphic geology that has proved so fruitful for both disciplines. Many contemporary geologists opposed his stratigraphic ideas, but despite this controversy he was appointed professor of palaeontology at the Museum d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris in 1853. The work contains numerous wood-engraved illustrations by E. Salle, which show an enormous variety of plant and animal fossils, from tiny invertebrates to gigantic dinosaurs.In very good condition, with only some faint foxing on the first and last few pages. Bindings of the text volumes slightly rubbed along the extremities and worn along the corners; paper wrappers of the tables slightly soiled, but still in good condition.

SWAMMERDAM, Jan.
BMC NH, p. 2055; Hagen II, p. 209; Horn & Schenkling 21795; Nissen, ZBI 4053; STCN (6 copies); for the author: DSB XIII, pp. 168-175. Reissue 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.With a small tear, the first few pages heavily browned and foxed, one small tear and some occasional slight damp stains and foxing, but with the plates in very good condition. Binding re-backed and slightly rubbed near the edges. Good copy.

Collin, Friedrich Eberhard
(56), 664, 183, (1) Seiten. Frakturdruck. OHNE den doppelseitigen Kupferstich. Rot-schwarzer Titel mit Druckermarke (Schiff mit Wind im Heck erreicht Hafen, unten Monogramm des Druckers) 8 (18 x 10,5 cm) Pergamentband der Zeit mit durchgezogenen Bünden und rotgefärbtem Schnitt. Friedrich Eberhard Collin (1684-1727) war ein pietistischer Hofprediger zu Lobenstein. Eine Verfasserbiographie beinhaltet sein posthum erschienenes Werk 'Der Sieg der ersten Blut-zeugen Jesu Christi (...)'. Collins, der als Kleinkind mit seinen Eltern aus dem von den Franzosen belagerten Geburtsort Worms fliehen musste, studierte in Gießen und Jena Theologie bevor er Prediger dreier Gemeinden bei Wertheim wurde. Dieses Amt übte er wohl mit besonderer Wachsamkeit gegenüber seinen 'Schäfchen' aus, führte er doch penibel Buch über deren Namen, Kinder, Besitz geistlicher Drucke, etc. (Zu seiner nicht immer einfachen Zeit in Wertheim, vgl. auch Ritschl II, 539). 1723 wurde er vom Dienst suspendiert, tauchte jedoch schon im Folgejahr wieder als Schuldirektor auf, bevor ihn, ein weiteres Jahr später, der Graf Heinrich XV. Reuß zu Lobenstein zu seinem Hofprediger machte. In seine Zeit als Schulleiter fällt auch die Entstehung des vorliegenden Werkes, dessen Widmung er im Mai 1725 unterzeichnet. - Collins Werk ist exemplarisch für die durch den Pietismus hervorgebrachte moralische Erbauungsliteratur der Frühaufklärung. Theologische Literatur, zumal solche, die der breiter werdenden Leserschaft säkularer Werke eine starke religiöse Orientierungen des moralischen Handelns entgegensetzt, dominiert weiterhin das … [Click Below for Full Description]

Kortholt, Christian
Es handelt sich um ein Werk des Theologen Christian Kortholt von 1684, das im Wesentlichen eine Nacherzählung des Neuen Testaments und einige Predigten enthält. Teilweise illustriert. Das Buch wurde vor ca. 50 - 80 Jahren neu gebunden, vermutlich war der originale Einband verschlissen. Beim nachträglichen Binden ist offenbar ein Vorblatt verlorengegangen oder weggelassen worden, so daß der Titel des Buches für mich unbestimmbar ist. Nach der Widmung an die Landesherrin und zwei "Vorreden an den Christlichen Leser folgt das Inhaltsverzeichnis und dann der eigentliche Text, zunächst die "Historia des Lebens-Lauffs unseres Herrn Jesu Christi", darauf die "Historia des Leydens unseres Herrn Jesu Christi" und die "Historia von der Auferstehung/Himmelfahrt unseres Herrn Jesu Christi". Der zweite Teil des Buches beginnt mit einer "Zuschrift" von Johann Maximilian von Sand und einer "Vorrede an die blühende Gemeinde Jesu Christi" von Arnold Moonen, es folgen 33 Predigten unter dem Motto "Der Leydende Christus", abschließend ein Register. Ich biete gern eine Inaugenscheinnahme des Buches an. Jederzeit Raum Essen, ggf. auch Raum Köln oder Raum Unna. Andere Orte in Deutschland wären ggf. nach Absprache und mit etwas Vorlauf evtl. möglich. Preis ist Verhandlungsbasis.

The whole oeuvre gives a detailled impression of all aspect of artillery at the end of the 17th century. The engraved plates by Gerard de Groos, after designs by the author, are very illustrative with many details, measurements etc. - Missing the engraved title and plate 7, only ocassionaly some browning; binding a bit rubbed, top and bottom of spine with menor faults.

BAYLE, P.)
A Amsterdam, Chez Henry Desbordes, 1684. With printer's mark on title. (22), 333, (3) pp. 12mo. Contemporary calf, gilt spine with raised bands, label with gilt lettering Mori, Bayle Philosophe, p. 348; Sauvy, Livres Saisies à Paris entre 1678 et 1701, 213; Conlon, Prélude, 1809. The very rare and first edition of three of Pierre Bayle's texts. The 8 pieces in this Recueil were all selected by Bayle and three are from his own hand: The Avis au Lecteur, (pp. 3-22); the Dissertatio in qua vindicantur A Peripateticorum exceptionibus rationes quibus aliqui Cartesiani probarunt essentiam corporis sitam esse in extensione (pp. 138-218), and the Theses Philosophicae (pp. 219-265). When Bayle arrived in Rotterdam on October 30, 1681, the Dissertation sur l'Essence des Corps was one of the texts he had taken with him in manuscript, written in his last years at he Academy of Sedan. When he got in contact again with the Amsterdam publisher Henry Desbordes (formerly of Saumur) he got the opportunity to publish this text (March 1684), and to get involved for the first time in editorial, journalistic work in which he would make name with his Nouvelles de la République des Lettres (started autumn 1684). In the Dissertation Bayle tries to defend the central tenet of Cartesianism that the essence of matter consist of extension. Also Bayle's affirmation and great estimation for Malebranche comes to an expression here for the first time (notably for his Recherche de la Vérité) and is defended against attacks of Père Le Valois. Malebranche's philosophy and necessary elaboration of Descartes co … [Click Below for Full Description]

BAYLE, Pierre, et al.
Amsterdam : Henry Desbordes, Daniel Pain et Pierre Mortier, 1684 -1708 30 volumes in-12, veau moucheté de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge. Quelques petites traces d'usage. Les livraisons ont été interrompues d'avril 1689 à janvier 1699. Tête de série de cette importante publication. Etonné que nul n'ait jamais entrepris d'éditer en Hollande un périodique à la manière du Journal des savants pourtant imité par d'autres nations (Angleterre, Allemagne, Italie), le protestant Pierre Bayle fonde en 1684 les Nouvelles de la République des Lettres, considérée comme la première revue exclusivement consacrée à la critique littéraire. Plusieurs éditeurs se succédèrent de mars 1684 à juin 1718, date de parution de la dernière livraison : après Bayle, Daniel de Larroque, Jean Barrin, Jean Le Clerc et enfin Jacques Bernard. Les Nouvelles de la République des Lettres dressent un tableau très complet de la vie intellectuelle de la fin du XVIIe siècle et du début du XVIIIe, des grands courants de pensée et des principaux débats soulevés. La plupart des grands auteurs de l'époque y sont étudiés : « de Leibniz à Locke, de Nicole à Bossuet, d'Abbadie à R. Simon et au père Hardouin, de La Hire à Tournefort, de Bochart à Vossius, de G. Leti à Varillas, de Boileau à La Bruyère. » (Sgard). Sgard n° 1016.
