[Anonyme]
Paris, Jacques Langlois, 1684. In-12, [2bl.]-[34]-189p.Edition originale dont l'auteur nous est resté anonyme. L'épistre nous laisse comprendre qu'il s'agit d'un jésuite. L'auteur a cherché ici, notamment, les raisons honnestes qu'on pouvoit avoir d'excuser & ne pas condamner ceux qui usent de ces Jeux [de hasard] avec modération. Il énumère ainsi ce qui est autorisé ou non, recommandant néanmoins de s'abstenir des jeux et divertissements car jouer avec mesure est, selon lui, difficile.Reliure plein veau, dos à nerfs orné, tranches dorées, coiffe supérieure arasée, haut des mors fendillés, petit manque à un coin. Beau papier, bien conservé, grandes marges. Ex-libris de Louis-Ernest Dubois, alors archevêque de Bourges (1909-1916).Ouvrage rare, bel exemplaire

These translations of the 'Annales', 'Historiae', 'Germania' and the 'Agricola' were posthumely published in 1684 by his able biographer Geeraert Brandt, 1626-1685.

Chez François Muguet, 1684. - Chez François Muguet, à Paris 1684, in-4 (18,5x25cm), xxviij ; 305pp. (20) 388pp. (12), deux tomes reliés en un volume. - Edition originale, rare, parue anonymement, citée par Barbier dans son Catalogue des livres de la bibliothèque du Conseil d'Etat. Plein veau brun de l'époque. Dos à cinq nerfs ornés de caissons dorés. Toutes tranches mouchetées rouges. Coiffe de tête élimée, même chose pour la coiffe de queue. Epidermures. Une pâle mouillure marginale.Le père Rapin, entré chez les jésuites en 1639 fut, outre un poète latin apprécié de son temps, un critique, un historien et un théologien. La méthode de la comparaison ou de la confrontation entre deux oeuvres ou deux personnages fut souvent utilisée au XVIIe, l'auteur ainsi étudie des doublons comme Démosthène et Ciceron, Homère et Virgile, Thucidide et Tite-Live, Platon et Aristote, opposant à chaque fois deux grands personnages d'une même discipline, deux oeuvres, deux pensées. Cette première partie est suivie de Réflexions sur les 4 parties qui forment les belles-lettres : la poétique, l'éloquence, l'histoire et la philosophie ; l'ensemble de ces dissertations suivent une conception aristotélicienne du discours. Bien que ce type d'oeuvres sur les écrivains de l'Antiquité eut de nombreux suiveurs, il faut reconnaître à Rapin un sérieux éminent et une grande connaissance de son sujet ; il constitue un témoignage éloquent de ce que furent les belles-lettres au XVIIe siècle. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, rare, parue anonymement, citée par Barbier dans son Catalogue des livres d … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ottima copia.SECONDA EDIZIONE che presenta alcune tavole differenti rispetto alla prima edizione, che uscì nel 1622 in tre diverse tirature. L'opera descrive molto accuratamente quarantacinque specie di uccelli ed i modi di prenderli e conservarli.«Veramente pregevoli sono le 66 figure che rappresentano diversi generi di uccelli e curiose vignette e scenette sul modo di cucinarli, cacciarli, ecc. Il disegno di queste figure si distingue per l'eleganza e la naturalezza.. Edizione più bella per l'impressione che non l'edizione originale» (Vinciana, 146). Le tavole sono opera di Antonio Tempesta, Francesco Villamena e Vincenzo Leonardi. L'edizione fu voluta dal grande erudito e amatore d'arte Cassiano dal Pozzo, le cui armi sono riprodotte sul frontespizio. Firmata dal suo 'maestro di casa' Giovanni Pietro Olina e destinata alle ricerche naturalistiche dell'Accademia dei Lincei, l'Uccelliera è la prima impresa editoriale di Cassiano dal Pozzo.L'Olina è considerato l'inventore della caccia "a ragnaja"?.Di notevole interesse un Avviso a chi legge posto al verso della carta di indice, nel quale viene precisato che alcuni disegni, in quanto trovati non perfettamente rispondenti al vero, furono ridisegnati con più precision … [Click Below for Full Description]

Londini; Impensis Richardi Chiswel, Ad Insigne Rosæ Coronatæ In Coemeterio Paulino, 1684. Original Full calf. 8vo. [14], 279 pages. 21 cm. First edition. In Latin. Published in London. An English translation was published in the same year, with the title: ?Critical enquiries into the various editions of the Bible printed in divers places and at several times: together with Animadversions upon a small treatise of Dr. Isaac Vossius concerning the Oracles of the sibylls, and an answer to the objections of the late Critica sacra?. Isaac Vossius (1618 - 1689) was a biblical scholar, friend and translator of Manasseh ben Israel. Richard Simon, ?French scholar and Orientalist; born at Dieppe May 13, 1638; died there April 21, 1721. After studying at the Sorbonne he joined the Congregation of the Oratory, in the library of which he studied Oriental works and manuscripts. When a certain Jew was condemned to the pyre at Metz on a blood accusation, Simon wrote a strong opinion in protest (1670) . He translated Leon of Modena's ?Historia dei Riti Ebraici, ? etc. (1674) , and wrote ?Comparaison des Cérémonies des Juifs et de la Discipline de l'Eglise? (1681) . His chief work, however, was his ?Histoire Critique du Vieux Testament? (1678) , practically the first introduction to the Old Testament written. It dealt with the books of the Old Testament as if they were ordinary writings, and by this means aroused the enmity of Bossuet and the Port Royal, through whose influence the whole edition of 1, 300 copies was seized and destroyed and Simon was expelled from the Oratory (May 21, 1678) . … [Click Below for Full Description]

Book Two, chapter Nine of the Persian Travels is of particular interest, as it contains an account of Tavernier's voyage through the Arabian Gulf, mentioning Bahrain, Bandar Abbas, Qeshm, and Hormuz and making observations on the people and navigation of the Gulf. There is also a bird's-eye map of the Strait of Hormuz showing the Musandam Peninsula (peppered with palm trees and captioned "A promontorie of Arabia the happey"), Hormuz, Larak, and Qeshm island, as well as Bandar Abbas and Bandar Kong on the Persian side. Intriguingly, this engraved map also includes depth soundings throughout the Gulf, making it useful as an early "Persian Gulf Pilot".

He lived consecutively in Paris, St. Martins, London (c. 1710), The Hague (c. 1721) and Amsterdam (c. 1728). He is best known as a Dutch cartographer and more specifically for his cartographic contribution in the seminal seven volume Atlas Historique, published in Amsterdam between 1705 and 1720. Innovative for its time, the Atlas Historique combined fine engraving and artwork with scholarly studies of geography, history, ethnology, heraldry, and cosmography. Some scholarship suggests that the Atlas Historique was not exclusively compiled by Henri Chatelain, as is commonly believed, but rather was a family enterprise involving Henri, his father Zacharie and his brother, also Zacharie.

HORNECK, Anthony
8vo., (16) 379 (5)pp., including the penultimate advertisement leaf and final blank, contemporary ink annotations on endpapers and on at least two page margins, tiny hole in one text leaf affecting two or three letters on both recto and verso, contemporary blind-ruled calf. A very good crisp copy. An unusually liberal Protestant view of worldly pleasures some of which Horneck condemned only when indulged in excess. Horneck examines the menu of pleasures - particularly what he calls the "sensual, and carnal delights of men, particularly of young men" and asks the rhetorical question: "What is there in that future judgment, that's able to cast a damp on the mirth, and jollities of men, especially the younger sort?" And, in attempting an answer, he examines in turn the various "delights" generally on offer: "delight in gardens, rivers and orchards", "delight in musick, either vocal or instrumental", "delight in books", "delight in drinking and tippling", "delight in cards & dice", "delight in feasting and going to feasts", "delight in fashionable cloaths and habits", "delight in painting and patching, and artificial meliorations of the face and skin", "delight in dancing", and "delight in seeing and going to stage-plays". Horneck's realistic - and relatively sensible - position on make-up and cosmetic surgery (as it were) well illustrates his general position in the real world. "Though a man who hath lately had the small pox, or hath been sun-burnt, or whose face hath been parch'd with wind, may lawfully take care by ordinary helps to reduce his face to his former, or nat … [Click Below for Full Description]
