SPRAT, Thomas
Thomas Newcomb. 1685 1ed Assassination King Charles II England Rye House Plot 2in1 Thomas Sprat A first-hand account of the plot to assassinate King Charles II! Thomas Sprat was involved with one of the most controversial conspiracies in 17th-century Britain. The Rye House Plot was a plan, in 1683, to assassinate King Charles II and his brother James II. This book includes two works, and the two were intended to be published together. According to Lowndes, “This [work] is always considered a discreditable production, and the author himself completely destroyed all its pretensions to authenticity; for in letters which he wrote after the Revolution, he admits that James II altered the papers in divers passages, and then caused them to be printed.” Item number: #9351 Price: $950 SPRAT, Thomas A true account and declaration of the horrid conspiracy against the late king, His present Majesty, and the government: as it was order'd to be published by His late Majesty 'Copies of the Informations and Original Papers Relating to the Proof of the Horrid conspiracy against the Late King' [London] In the Savoy: printed by Thomas Newcomb, 1685.

Lyon, Jean Girin & B. Rivière, 1685. In-12 de (11) ff. dont le joli frontispice (court de marge intérieure) , 445 pages et 5 pages de table, 3 en-têtes, 3 lettrines et 3 figures sur cuivre. Légères rousseurs et brunissureset petites mouillures en marge sup. de quelques feuillets, ex-libris raturés sur le titre. Veau granité d'époque, dos à nerfs orné. Pages de garde renouvellés. (Restaurations anciennes). Première édition complète de cet ouvrage aux sources complexes. Dans cette édition, le nom de l'auteur est clairement donné sur le titre. Cela étant, rien n'est résolu, car si Dufour est bien l'auteur avoué de ce volume, rien ne prouve qu'il ait rédigé les deux précédentes éditions de 1671 et celle en latin de 1685 . Les textes sont totalement différents. Les trois planches montrent l'homme d'Arabie buvant du café, le chinois du thé, l'indien du chocolat. Au bas de chaque planche on voit la plante. Joli bandeau gravé signé Ogier, montrant les trois personnages réunis, et lettrine avec une licorne, répétés en tête de chaque partie. Le frontispice représente les trois personnages autour d'une même table. Vicaire 293; Oberlé 733.

Unico Wilhelm Wassenaer (van) (1692-1766) Compositeur et homme d'état hollandais, ambassadeur des Provinces-Unies. Ses 6 concerti armonici, publiés anonymement en 1740, ont été attribués à Pergolèse.
Van Wassenaer fut, tout à la fois, un compositeur de renom et un éminent diplomate et ministre des Pays-bas. Il vient de recevoir l'Abrégé chronologique de l'histoire de France et adresse ses félicitations à son auteur, le président Hénault. Il commente également la situation européenne. «Pour prouver à ma postérité que l'auteur d'un tel ouvrage n'a pas dédaigné de m'aimer», il va faire relier sa lettre en tête du livre. Cependant, pour répondre à la sollicitation d'Hénault qui lui demandait ses commentaires et corrections éventuelles, «je me ferais un devoir de vous en donner connaissance [mais] jusqu'ici je ne puis qu'admirer l'immensité du travail, l'ordre et l'arrangement qui y règne, la noblesse, la précision, le soucis, le nerveux [sic] du stÿle, la beauté des portraits et des caractères peints d'après nature et sans le moindre déguisement [...]». Il en a déjà fait distribuer 3 exemplaires en Hollande. «Cet ouvrage lavera en partie la France du reproche qu'on lui fait d'innonder l'Europe depuis quelques tems d'un amas énorme de livrets, indignes du génie de la nation, et nous prouve qu'elle produit toujours des hommes dignes de l'immortalité [...]». Il s'excuse de ne pouvoir le voir à Paris et lui explique son silence. «Le Roÿ veut retourner à l'armée, malgré les instances du Conseil et de presque tout le monde ; la petite vérole y règne ; s'il part, nous le suivrons, Mr Gillis et moy ; s'il demeure, nous ne laisserons pas que d'y aller ; n'en tirez pas mauvaise augure, au contraire.

Giuseppe Maria Mitelli (Bologna 1634 â€" 1718)
Acquaforte, 1685, firmata e datata in lastra in basso a destra. Magnifica prova, impressa su cata vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, tracce di piega centrale, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Figlio del celebre pittore Agostino Mitelli fu a sua volta pittore, ma soprattutto fu uno dei più prolifici incisori del Seicento. Riprodusse a olio capolavori dei Carracci, del Guercino e di altri insigni pittori bolognesi. Realizzò all’acquaforte una straordinaria quantità di soggetti di ogni genere: scene di vita quotidiana, allegorie sacre e profane, satire politiche, proverbi, giochi di società . Le sue incisioni erano spesso accompagnate da brevi commenti o da poesie in dialetto bolognese. Bibliografia: Buscaroli, Rezio, Agostino e Giuseppe Maria Mitelli, catalogo delle loro stampe nella Raccolta Gozzadini nella Biblioteca Comunale dell’Archiginnasio in Bologna. Etching, 1685, signed and dated on lower right. Magnificent work, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to platemark, signs of central fold, otherwise in excellent condition. Son of the renowned painter Agostino Mitelli, he was a painter himself, but above all he was one of the most prolific engravers of the XVII century. He copied with oil painting the masterpieces of the Carracci’s, of Guercino and many other Bolognese painters. He also realized with the etching technique various subjects: daily life scenes, profane and sacred allegories, satires, proverbs, party games. His engravings were often accompanied with short comments or poems written in Bolognese dialect.

Harper, London 1685. Small octavo; [44], 178,[2]. Contemporary full speckled sheepskin, corners worn, a 19thc respine of light calf, two lettering pieces of red and black leather. Endpapers sl dusty, few blemishes. Few marginal spots but text generally clean. Bookplate of Frederick Polhill of Howbury Hall, Bedford. Overall a G-Nr VG copy of this interesting work which was a reply to Thomas Burnet's "Theory of the Earth" which was first published in Latin in 1681 then in English in 1684. The second part appeared in 1689 (Latin) and 1690 (English). In the work, Burnet suggested a hollow earth with most of the water inside until Noah's Flood, at which time mountains and oceans appeared. He calculated the amount of water on Earth's surface, stating there was not enough to account for the Flood. Burnet was to some extent influenced by Descartes who had written on the creation of the earth in Principia philosophiae (1644). Croft's criticism includes an accusation that Burnet was following the Second Epistle of Peter rather than the Book of Genesis. During the 1690s John Beaumont and Johann Caspar Eisenschmidt picked up on Burnet's ideas. They engendered a great deal of controversy at the time, and Burnet defended himself against selected critics, John Keill and Erasmus Warren. Isaac Newton was an admirer of Burnet's theological approach to geological processes. Newton even wrote to Burnet, suggest … [Click Below for Full Description]

(ACUPUNCTURE NEEDLES)
1685. Ten full-page brush & ink illus., highlighted in red. 26 folding leaves. 8vo (258 x175 mm.), orig. wrappers, new stitching. [Japan]: dated on final leaf "April 1685."This early manuscript on the use of needles in acupuncture contains family secrets, passed from one generation to another. The information comes from many sources including manuscripts from the highly respected Sanmi hogen (or Sani hogan) family of doctors. On the final page of the manuscript, we learn that Tsushin Tadateru Mizuno gave the information described here to Kihei Hirano.The text begins with a discussion of the relationship between doctor and patient: they must deal with each other in perfect harmony (ikiai) and must trust each other (ei). Following this, there are discussions on the importance of the supporting second hand while the other hand inserts the needle (oshide), on focusing on the body temperature of the patient (kannetsu), and on the use of needles to release pus and other infections (kiribari or sesshin).Mizuno provides a number of case histories and, with each, instructions on what kind of needle to use; where it should be inserted and how deeply; and whether the needle should be manipulated after insertion by spinning, flicking, or moving it in and out relative to the surface of the skin. A few of the diseases described here that can be treated with acupuncture are brain hemorrhages, paralysis, slow blood circulation, sexually transmitted diseases, headaches, typhus, diseases of the eyes and ears, asthma, swelling, hysteria, stuttering, etc.Mizuno also describes how the n … [Click Below for Full Description]
