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. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Desbordes - Pain - Mortier. 12mo (cm. 13,8), 66 Voll., ciascuno di circa 400 pp. con disegni n.t. e tavv. f.t. Legature coeve in piena pelle con nervi e ricchi fregi oro al ds. 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). Si tratta del primo periodico che si prefisse l’obiettivo di analizzare e segnalare al ‘Pubblico’ (in precedenza lo scambio di informazioni e di valutazioni si svolgeva nella stretta cerchia degli intellettuali) le edizioni contemporanee pubblicate in Europa (Francia e Olanda soprattutto, ma anche Inghilterra, Svezia, Germania, Italia, ecc.) riguardanti gli argomenti più interessanti nel mondo pre-illuministico come la filosofia cartesiana, le religioni (con molteplici note sulla religione cattolica e protestante, ma anche con segnalazioni di studi sulla chiesa anglicana, sulla storia e gli usi degli ebrei, ecc.), i viaggi, le invenzioni ed i progressi … [Click Below for Full Description]

SWAMMERDAM, Jan.
, . . 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.

Gestochenes Frontispiz von Melchior Halfner, 3 Blätter, 162 Seiten, 8 Blätter, 1 Kupfertafel bei S. 81, 19 Textkupfer und über 50 Holzschnitte im Text. Halbpergamentband (Rücken und Vorsätze perfekt erneuert). Vollständiges Exemplar der reich illustrierten ersten deutschen Ausgabe der 1673 publizierten "Phonurgia nova", die ihrerseits ein ergänzter Separatdruck des neunten Buches der "Musurgia universalis" darstellt. 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]

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 a very … [Click Below for Full Description]

Roter Ganzmaroquinband, Deckelrahmen aus Dreifachfileten, Eckstücken und gekröntem liegendem Löwen in Goldprägung, reicher Rücken- und Innenkantenvergoldung, Goldschnitt (Rückenkopf fachgerecht restauriert). 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.

[Japanese Hand-Coloured Wood-Block Printing]; [Maps and Atlases]; [Tokyo Map] Hyoshiya Ichirobe
Hyoshiya Ichirobe (Hayashi-shi Yoshinaga), 1684. A large woodcut map of Edo (Tokyo) with fine handcolouring, on joined and folded paper. The map is breathtaking in its detail and features many paintings of important landmarks, temples, bridges and people, who are often pictured working or fishing from boats on the waterways running through Tokyo. A stunning and very rare woodblock map beautifully and unusually handcoloured. Roads, blocks, buildings, open areas, canals and waterways, are all vividly laid out on this huge and most impressive map. 123.5 by 149.5 cm., folded within paper covers, folds to 28 by 18 cm, now preserved in a fine clamshell box. A remarkably well preserved and very rare item, with some light rubbing due to age and as to be expected. A bit of old worming or light soiling and occasional small repairs, but in all quite astonishing in its quality and beautifully preserved with bright and vivid colour and detail. AN EXTRAORDINARY ITEM, REMARKABLE FOR BOTH ITS CARTOGRAPHIC DETAIL AND ITS ARTISTIC BEAUTY. The wood block printing shows land tenures of Daimyo and Hatamoto. It also shows temples and shrines, includes a distance chart and descriptive listing of Daimyo showing crests and halberds. There is also a inset of the eastern portion of Edo.

Thomas More
London: Richard Chiswell. London, Richard Chiswell, 1684. First Thus.First Impression. Hardback. First edition translated by Gilbert Burnet (often quoted as preferable to Ralph Robinson's). One of the most important taproot texts for modern speculative fiction and a milestone in the genre's history. A lovely recent binding, marred by loss from every leaf that has been expertly repaired but still pretty obvious. A little spotted. A rare edition. Pagination: [24], 206. First leaf is a blank, followed by the title page and then the prologue. Our previous copy had to blanks before the title page, though the collation on this copy seems correct. Utopia is one of the most important works to have influenced the field of speculative fiction. In the 500 years since its publication, there have been hundreds of imitators, and the field would be a very different landscape without it. [6441, Hyraxia Books]. . Good.

FALCONRY SCREEN DESIGNS
A remarkable survival: twelve original and highly finished drawings of falcons and hawks on their perches, with instructions on coloring and rendering, in preparation for creating a Japanese folding screen (byobu e). We have never encountered such a collection of drawings for a folding screen, revealing a Kano school artist at work. Because of the close association over the centuries to the shogun and aristocrats, Kano School artists had access to the government's mews where the falcons resided (bakufu taka beya). The sport of falconry has had a long history in Japan, beginning in the 4th century. With the succession of Yoshimune Tokugawa (1684-1751), in 1716, the sport of falconry became highly fashionable, an expensive and prestigious activity. It became one of the primary outlets for the militaristic energies of the samurai class during the long period of peace. With this new prestige, many paintings and screens featuring falcons and hawks were commissioned. This scroll contains 12 panels of highly finished preliminary paintings by a very accomplished artist - a member of the Kano School - for a yet unidentified screen. Each panel features a falcon or hawk on its perch. Many of the birds are rendered fully drawn and colored using highly skilled and intricate brush techniques, with notes by the artist on what colors to use for the perches, decorative braids, and background. Some of the colors include gold, pale peach, green, yellow, etc. The plumage of other birds are not fully colored and the artist has left very explicit and complicated notes about what … [Click Below for Full Description]

A monumental encyclopedia of physics written to complement Lana's Prodromo, 1670, by more thoroughly explaining the various theories advanced within. Sotheby & Willkinson stated, in their catalogue of the Guglielmo Libri Library, that one "would require an explanatory volume to give an idea of this work, which is truly a cyclopedia of all sciences connected with natural philosophy." Thorndike has written the most thorough account of the importance and content of this remarkable work. "Fourteen years went by before Lana Terzi began to issue the Mastery of Nature and Art, to which the Prodromo was to have been the portico, and its publication in three huge double-columned folio volumes extended over eight years. The long Latin title emphasizes the more occult principles of natural philosophy, experimentation and demonstration, 'almost all the inventions of the ancients and many new ones thought out by the author himself.' The second and third volumes in twenty-five books discuss as many varieties of motions of natural bodies, manifest and occult: namely, 1, the penetration of corpuscles through pores; 2 … [Click Below for Full Description]

A monumental encyclopedia of physics written to complement Lana's Prodromo, 1670, by more thoroughly explaining the various theories advanced within. Sotheby & Willkinson stated, in their catalogue of the Guglielmo Libri Library, that one "would require an explanatory volume to give an idea of this work, which is truly a cyclopedia of all sciences connected with natural philosophy."

Excudebat Franciscus Muguet, 1684. In-4° (284x205mm), pp. (54), 610, (1), cartonatura alla rustica coeva con titolo e fregio manoscritti anticamente al dorso. Al frontespizio, stemma calcografico all'Arcivescovo Charles Maurice Le Tellier, dedicatario dell'opera; il blasone del religioso è ripetuto sulla testatina incisa su rame dal Giffart che sormonta la dedicatoria, affiancato da putti, da un leone, da una figura femminile allegorica.

Aloni marginali alle prime 2 cc. e alle ultime 20 p. ca., nonché alle ultime cc. bianche, al contropiatto e al piatto posteriori; sparse bruniture e fioriture; nell'insieme, più che discreto esemplare a pieni margini.

Bibliotecario del Collège Louis le Grand dal 1683, fu dapprima editore di classici (tra l'altro di una "Naturalis Historia" pliniana ad usum Delphini), poi si volse prevalentemente agli studi numism … [Click Below for Full Description]
