LA FONTAINE Jean de
à Amsterdam [Paris]: S.n. The so-called Fermiers Generaux edition, using the editions of 1685 and 1696 for the text and adding tales by d'Autreau and de Vergier, present in the 1718 edition.This edition was of 2,000 copies on verge de Hollande paper, the present copy one of the rare copies in contemporary morocco. This copy is probably of the first issue, bearing in mind the quality of the engravings and a fleuron error on p. 240 of vol. 1, later corrected.The work has 80 proof illustrations by Eisen, engraved by the foremost engravers of the time (Aliamet, Baquoy, Choffard, Delafosse, Flipart, Le Mire, Leveau, de Longueuil and Ouvrier), two frontispiece portraits (one of La Fontaine by Hyacinthe Rigaud and another of Eisen by Vispre, engraved by Ficquet), as well as six vignettes by Coffard, of which two to title, two hors-texte at the head of each volume and two at the head of the first tale in each volume; and 53 tailpieces. This edition was printed at the expense of the Fermiers Generaux and is therefore known as the "Fermiers Generaux edition." It stands out thanks to the high quality of its printing and the remarkable illustrations by Eisen (1720-1778), who made this work not only his own masterpiece, but unquestionably one of the masterpieces of 18th century illustrated book production. Contemporary red morocco, the spines with gilt fillets and fleurons (stars), the covers with a triple frame of gilt fillets, gilt tooling to edge of covers, narrow interior gilt dentelle framing the marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. A few insignificant spots to the plates in the seco … [Click Below for Full Description]

Henry Elsinge; John Doddridge; R C; Henry Scobell
London: M Gillflower, 1685. Bound in full leather. Contains four volumes bound as one. Very scarce. Collates complete. Henry Scobell (c1610 - 1661) was an English Parliamentary official, and editor of official publications. He was clerk to the Long Parliament, and wrote on parliamentary procedure and precedents. Sir John Doddridge (1555 - 1628) was a judge. As a lawyer Dodderidge was immensely well respected. He was known as the Sleeping Judge, not because of any shortcoming on his part, but because of his habit of concentrating on legal argument with eyes firmly closed. Dodderidge got to the heart of matters very quickly, and his arguments--as advocate, as judge, and as parliamentarian--had a compelling lucidity. His writings show the same quality. CONDITION In a full calf binding. There is significant wear to the extremities including heavy rubbing with some loss to the leather and cracking to the spine. The front board is detached but present. The binding is generally tight and firm although it is coming loose at the bottom of the volume. There is an ink stamp mark to the front pastedown and a signature and annotation to the first title page. A few of the pages have underlinings. The final 33 pages have been close trimmed at the foredge with loss to the odd letter at the end of a line of text. There is a small tear with loss to the first title page and to the corners of a couple of pages, but with no loss to the text. Overall the volume is in fair condition externally but good internally. Extremely scarce and important work. Overall Condition: Fair.

Meyer Cornelio
Stamperia del Lazzari Varese, 1685. Folio (cm. 38,9), 84 (di 91) cc.nn. Grandi capilettera ornati, fregi e finali incisi su legno. Il libro ha sessantaquattro incisioni a metà pagina, una a piena pagina e tre (di quattro) a doppia pagina (territorio di Pisa, veduta di piazza del Popolo e veduta di piazza S. Pietro). Le incisioni sono di B. di Ballin, Io. Collin, G.B. Falda, Gaspar van Wittel. Legatura in pergamena d’agnello con nervi e titolo su tassello con fregi oro al ds. Tagli rossi (Bella legatura ottocentesca). Esemplare in ottime condizioni generali (solo qualche antica annotazione e qualche piccola macchia), ma imperfetto. In particolare sono assenti: un frontespizio (è presente solo quello con il titolo e una grande incisione); una carta della Dedica; la pianta dello stagno di Maccarese (due carte); la pianta delle paludi pontine (tre carte); due altre carte (le figure III e IV della Parte terza) sostituite da due carte anch’esse con incisioni, ma provenienti da altra opera del Meyer. Pur con queste non secondarie mancanze, il volume, realizzato graficamente in maniera assai affascinante, costituisce un’importante documentazione della teorie idrauliche e di alcuni rilevanti interventi realizzati a Roma dall’ingegnere olandese durante il pontificato di Innocenzo XI. Ma nel libro, oltre a ciò, vi sono altri aspetti di grande interesse che riguardano una serie di materie (riconducibili tutte a proposte di ‘abbellimenti’) ‘che possono essere a vantaggio così al pubblico come a particolari’: innalzare fontane, allineare le acque, alzare da terra la C … [Click Below for Full Description]

1685. This is a complete set of the commentaries on the minor prophets written by the renowned Oxford orientalist Edward Pococke; Hosea takes up one volume, while Joel, Micah, and Malachi are bound together in the second volume. Hosea (1685) and Joel (1691) are first impressions; Micah and Malachi are second impressions from 1692 (first published 1677). This is a rare and, for a number of reasons, important set. Edward Pococke (1604-1691) travelled to Aleppo at the age of 26 to take up a post as chaplain to the English merchants resident there. Over the course of five years in Syria, he became fluent in Arabic, studied other oriental languages, and took the opportunity to amass a great collection of manuscripts. When William Laud established Oxford's first professorship of Arabic, he invited Pococke to fill the post. Pococke wrote a major history of the Arabs (drawn from Bar Hebraeus), translated Maimonides into Latin, and later translated Grotius' De Veritate into Arabic (he was also made Regius Professor of Hebrew). These commentaries on Micah, Malachi, Hosea, and Joel constitute the major work of the later decades of Pococke's life. Pococke's experiences in the East stood him in good stead as a biblical commentator; one well known example is his correction of Micah 1:8 from 'wailing like the dragons' to 'howling like the jackals'. But the most important asset Pococke brought to the table was his ability to mine the vast Jewish scholarship on the Old Testament in Hebrew and Arabic, due to his immense facility with languages and his adroitness in acquiring rare manuscripts … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 most immediately striking aspect of the Fourth Folio is its height: Herringman and his co- … [Click Below for Full Description]

Modern 1/4 calf; title heavily soiled and rubbed, trimmed and mounted, varying soiling and foxing, dampstaining in gutters in second half of volume, penultimate leaf rehinged and remargined. Published around half a century after the first edition, this is a notable publication in the history of the Bach revival at the beginning of the nineteenth century. RISM B 523; Hoboken 1, 146; Kinsky, pages 80 and 120 ("schöngestochene Neudruck in Partitur und Klavierauszug war eine anzuerkennende verlegerische Tat"). Composed in the last decade of his life, The Art of Fugue, BWV 1080 is is an incomplete work of unspecified instrumentation and the culmination of Bach's experimentation with monothematic instrumental works. It consists of 14 fugues and 4 canons, each using some variation of a single principal subject, and generally ordered to increase in complexity. "The governing idea of the work", as put by Bach specialist Christoph Wolff, "was an exploration in depth of the contrapuntal possibilities inherent in a single musical subject."

Internally in very fine condition, ownernship signature on title. First edition of the full score of Mozart's re-orchestration of Handel's Messiah, fully engraved. Köchel 572. "In 1789, at the request of Baron Gottfried van Swieten, Mozart, by all accounts a profound admirer of Handel, also re-orchestrated Messiah. It is often said that the subject of the re-orchestration was to compensate for the absence of an organ in the hall, but this is not borne out by what Mozart does, which seems more of a translation into terms suggested by the ordinary forces for these concerts; these included flutes, oboes, clarinets, bassoons, horns and trombones. The trumpets were demoted from melodic to harmonic instruments. 'The trumpet shall sound' and 'If God be for us,' which van Swieten called the 'cold aria,' were rewritten, the latter as a recitative" (Luckett, Handel's Messiah: A Celebration, 214).

WOTTON, Sir Henry
1685. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "An ambassador is an honest man sent abroad to lie and intrigue for the benefit of his country." - Henry Wotton This fourth edition of "Reliquiae Wottonianae" is the final edition of this book to be printed, and yes, while it is not a first printing, this edition includes additional matter that was never included in other editions (see pages 585-713; Buxton Forman, 1223). Among the contents of this book is "A philosophical survey of education or moral architecture." Wotton, mostly known as a diplomat and a poet, was a staunch activist for education. This volume includes a life of Henry Wotton by Izaak Walton. Henry Wotton was not known for his writings, in fact, his portfolio is quite sparse compared to his contemporaries. He is regarded for only two major works - "Elements of Architecture" and this work, "Reliquiae Wottonianae." Of the twenty-five poems printed in this book, only fifteen are actually by Wotton. But two those pieces have solidified themselves as some of the best-known poems in English: · "On his Mistris, the Queen of Bohemia" · "The Character of a Happy Life". [Attributes: First Edition]

MALLET, Allain Manesson
1685 Military Fortification & Engineering FORTS Illustrated WAR Travaux de Mars Alain Manesson Mallet was an important 17th-century French cartographer and engineer who published a number of works on architecture and warfare. His most famous work ‘Les Travaux des Mars’ was an interesting treatise in which Mallet appears to have written two distinct works and published them under one title. Published in three volumes, the first two (which are entirely independent of the third) are concerned with an analysis of the architecture and engineering of many European cities, focusing special attention to fortifications and geometrical elements of city walls, which is depicted by 266 fascinating full-page engravings.
