        Comedies, Histories and Tragedies

      London: for H. Herringman, and are to be sold by Joseph Knight and Francis Saunders,, 1685. Published according to the true Original Copies. Unto which is added, Seven Plays, Never before Printed in Folio … Folio (360 × 234 mm). Rebound to style using old leather and retaining old endpapers, spine gilt in compartments, red morocco label, blind-ruled sides, plain endpapers, old sprinkled edges. Engraved portrait by Martin Droeshout above the verses To the Reader on verso of first leaf, double column text within typographical rules, woodcut initials. Frontispiece with skilful paper restoration at inner and lower margin not affecting text or engraved area, title leaf with minor paper restoration all round just affecting printed frame at head, minor restoration in gutter of prelims to lower stab holes; spill-burns to C6 and 2L5 touching frame but no text, blemish to D3 affecting a word either side, small tear at upper margin O3 (binding shop accident) not affecting text, paper flaw at upper outer corner of U6 and *3E4 not affecting text, single wormhole in lower margin below the text running from 2I2 onwards and widening to three by end; upper outer corner of 2L6 torn away not affecting text, spill-burns to 3F4?-5 affecting a couple of individual letters but not the sense, one bifolium (3I3?-4) slightly shorter and probably supplied from another genuine copy, paper flaw at foot of gutter to 3V2 not affecting text, 2 closed tears at foot of 3Y1 running about 18 lines up (no loss), a few fairly minor spots, stains, and insignificant marginal tears as often, overall a good complete copy. Fourth folio, and the last of the 17th-century editions of Shakespeare's works, edited by John Heminge (d. 1630) and Henry Condell (d. 1627), the seven plays added by Philip Chetwin (d. 1680), publisher of the Third Folio. A reprint of the ill-fated Third Folio, this edition was issued by Henry Herringman in conjunction with other booksellers, and has three settings of the title-page. Of the seven additional plays, also included in the Third Folio, only Pericles is today recognised as the work of Shakespeare. In common with the Third, the Fourth Folio dropped the final "e" from Shakespeare's name, a spelling that persisted until the beginning of the 19th century. The printer of the Comedies has been identified from the ornaments as Robert Roberts. Although this is the only edition in which each play does not start on a fresh page, it is in a larger fount and more liberally spaced than the three earlier editions. (The two pages of L1 are set in smaller type, presumably after the discovery that some text had been omitted.) The Fourth Folio remained the favoured edition among collectors until the mid-18th century, when Samuel Johnson and Edward Capell argued for the primacy of the First Folio text.

        IL CRITICON OVERO REGOLE DELLA VITA POLITICA MORALE . Tradotte dallo Spagnuolo in Italiano da Gio.Pietro Cattaneo. Divisa in tre Parti; La Prima La Primavera della Fanciullezza. La Seconda L' Estate della Gioventù. La Terza L' Inverno della Vecchiezza.

      Nicolò Pezzana,, Venezia, 1685 - Volume in 4° antico (cm. 22 x 15), legatura coeva in piena pelle, titolo al tassello al dorso finemente decorato in oro, tagli colorati, sguardie pavonate, bianca, occhiello (marchio d'antico possessore), frontespizio con grande marca xilografica (giglio fiorentino in ricca cornice ornamentale di stile barocco), prefazione, sommario, 4 cc., 312 pp., bianca finale. Prima edizione italiana del capo d’ opera del grande filosofo spagnolo, gesuita (1601-1658). Un allegoria della vita umana, che costituisce una delle opere letterarie più importanti della letteratura spagnola, comparabile per qualità con il Don Chisciotte di Miguel Cervantes. Lo stile è basato su frasi brevi, molto personale e denso, concentrato e polisemico, nel quale domina il gioco di parole e l'associazione ingegnosa fra parole e idee. Ne risulta un linguaggio laconico, pieno di aforismi e capace di esprimere una ricca gamma di significati, che si può ascrivere alla corrente letteraria chiamata concettismo. Come questa, buona parte delle sue opere si occupano di fornire al lettore i mezzi e le risorse per districarsi nelle trappole della vita; da cui l’autore trae la fama di precursore dell'esistenzialismo, tale da influenzare pensatori come La Rochefoucauld e più tardi anche Schopenhauer. Bell’esemplare, stampato su doppia colonna, adorno di testatine e capilettera ornati in xilografia, rarissime ed ininfluenti mende d’uso. Ancor fresco e frusciante. Notevole l’importanza dell’opera e la rarità dell’edizione.

        Histoire Générale des Insectes. Ou l'on expose clairement la manière lente & presqu' insensible de l'accroissement de leurs membres, & ou l'on decouvre evidemment l'erreur ou l'on tombe d'ordinaire au sujet de leur prétendué transformation.

      Utrecht, Jean Ribbius, 1685. 4to (205 x 155mm). pp. (10), 215, (3), with woodcut title-vignette, 1 folded table and 13 (10 folded) engraved plates. Contemporary calf, gilt decorated spine with red gilt lettered label. Second French edition; the original Latin edition 'Historia Insectorum generalis' was published in 1669 in Utrecht. "Swammerdam's thesis about insects was fundamentally new and significant. For his contemporaries, as for Aristotle, there existed three good arguments, that not only placed the insects far from the higher animals, but even tended to remove them from the realm of subjects open to scientific study. These arguments were: insects lack internal anatomy; they originate by spontaneous generation; and they develop by metamorphosis. Swammerdam believed that all three arguments were false and devoted a wide variety of investigations to refute these ideas" (D.S.B. XIII, p. 171). Two leaves with small paper repair at the lower margin. A fine and beautifully bound copy.//Provenance: Bookplate of J. d'Aguilar.//Nissen ZBI, 4054.

      . Amsterdam, H. Wetstein, 1685-1686. Six parts in one. 12mo. [10], 216, [37, index], 40, [6, index], [2], 312, [32, index] pp., two engraved frontispieces, 59 partly folded engraved plates. Later vellum with abridged title written on spine.* Mint copy of a collection of six papers by two authors (Redi and Lachmund) that are combined together as the second Latin edition of the Opuscula. The following are included: (1) "Experimenta circa generationem insectorum". DSB, vol.11, p.341: "Redi's masterpiece is considered to be 'Esperienze intorno alla generazione degl'Insetti...' (1668), in which he disproved the doctrine of spontaneous generation in insects, inherited from Aristotle and still considered dogma. The microscope revealed in insects an organization as marvelous as it was unsuspected..."; (2) "Generationem Insectorum" with its index; (3) "de Ave Diomedea section of F. Lachmund on the Albatross, with 5 plates, numbered "A", "B", I-III. the last four folded; (4) "Experimenta circa varias res Naturales"; (5) the important "Observationes de viperis" (the first edition of this part was published in 1664 in a quarto format in Florence), and (6) its "Epistola". A very nice, clean copy. Binding seems later, but is expertly made and looks contemporary. Especially important because of the Viper part, and the fine illustrations (e.g. of Siphonaptera and Phthiraptera). Horn-Schenkling, 17788. Nissen ZBI, 3320, 3322..

        Traitez nouveaux et curieux du Café, du Thé et du Chocolat. Ouvrage également nécessaire aux médecins, et à tous ceux qui aiment leur santé.

      A Lyon, chez Jean-Baptiste Girin et B. Riviere 1685 - in-12, [120]-445-[5] pp., titre-front., gravures, basane fauve, dos lisse orné, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge, tranches rouges (reliure du XVIIIe). Édition originale. L'ouvrage est illustré d'un titre-frontispice gravé qui montre un arabe dégustant le café, un chinois le thé et un indien des Amériques le cacao. Les trois planches reprennent l'illustration de ces trois plantes, que viennent conforter les en-têtes gravées. Philippe Sylvestre, dit Dufour, possédait à Lyon un commerce international de drogues avec l'Orient. Il rédigea son ouvrage à partir de différents traités, ce qui le fit attribuer longtemps à son ami Spon dont la collaboration était probable ; mais l'ouvrage est aujourd'hui donné à Dufour car les traités sur le thé et le chocolat sont entièrement nouveaux. Il développe d'abord une analyse chimique des produits, et notamment du café, puis décrit les différentes façons de les préparer et de les servir, et donne, pour finir, des recettes. Bon exemplaire.

        Franche Comté] Dole prise dans la premiere conqueste que le Roy a faite de la franche Comté en 1668 [Dôle, taken in the first conquest that the King made in Franche-Comté]

      distribuë par l'Auteur, en l'Hostel des Manufactures des Gobelins, et en la rue St.Jacques, Paris 1685 - Painted from life by the artist who accompanied Louis XIV on his campaigns, Adam Frans Van der Meulen depicted in this wonderful panorama a post-battle view of Dôle, the capital of Franche-Comté, and the handsome surrounding region. In it, Louis XIV and his brother survey the city they've won from a hilltop. There is actually no unpleasant evidence of military activity except for some smoke billowing from the far side of Dôle. Adam Frans Van der Meulen was a landscape and genre painter, who specialized in battle scenes, and his early works, i.e. those from the years before he left for Paris (the earliest dated work is from 1653) are mainly cavalry skirmishes in the manner of his teacher Pieter Snayer. After he moved to Paris, the character of his work changed and became more ceremonial. He now specialized in large topographical views and military scenes and in royal journeys, processions and receptions. His most important task was to accompany the king on his many campaigns during the wars of conquest waged in the 1660s and 1670s against, inter alia the Spanish Netherlands, and as Peintre de conquêtes du roi officially to portray the memorable sieges, battles and conquests of le Roi Soleil in large-scale canvases or cartoons which were later transformed into tapestries. Van der Meulen was born in Brussels in 1632. In 1646 he was apprenticed to the battle painter Pieter Snayers. In 1651 he became a master in the Guild of St Luke in Brussels but by 1663 he had moved to Paris, where he joined a group of Netherlandish artists associated with the French painter Charles Le Brun (1619-90), who not only was Premier peintre du roi , but also (from 1663) director of the Parisian tapestry manufactory Manufacture royale des Gobelins . Van der Meulen quickly became a protégé of Le Brun, and on his recommendation Van der Meulen was appointed court painter to Louis XIV on 1 April 1664 and at the same time became Le Brun's collaborator in the tapestry manufactory. In 1673 he was accepted as a member of the Académie royale de Peinture et de Sculpture without any obligation to submit a morceau de réception ; in 1681 he became conseiller and in 1686 premier conseiller . He died as a highly esteemed artist in the Hôtel des Gobelins 15 October 1690. Copper engraving, on two joined sheets, by Van Huctenburg and A.F. Baudouinst, after Van der Meulen. Titled in French and Latin.

Contemporary bookplate on front pastedown, later bookplates on rear pastedown. Internally clean. Near fine. The first available edition of this extremely important narrative, preceded by the 1557 original (of which only four copies are known), and two issues published by Richard Hakluyt in 1609 and 1611, in English. The identity of the Gentleman of Elvas has remained a mystery. His narrative is the primary source for information concerning the De Soto expedition of 1539- 43, the first investigation by Europeans of the southeast region of the United States. De Soto landed on the west coast of Florida in 1539, marching north through Georgia and west to Mobile Bay. His party reached the Mississippi River in 1541 and went perhaps as far as the present Oklahoma-Arkansas border. Returning east, De Soto died and was buried in the Mississippi. The survivors floated to the Gulf and made it to Mexico. SABIN 24864. SERVIES 218. PALAU 256843. CLARK I:8. JCB (2)II:1324.

Later owner signatures to front free endpaper, small owner stamp to verso of title page, interior otherwise clean. * Second edition. Townesend was a clerk of the Court of Common Pleas. First published in 1675, he wrote his manual to improve the quality of pleadings, which had "much decayed" during the Civil War and Protectorate. A Latin-English dictionary for the most part, it aimed to "direct Attornies and Young Clerks, in the formalities of their Words and Writings" so "their Businesses may be more Clerklike drawn, and fairly entred on record" (Preface). The work was well-received. Its fourth and final edition was published in 1721. All are scarce today.
