Henault, Charles-Jean-Francois (Le President)
Paris: Briand. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. 5 volume set bound in contemporary calf. Very scarce. The author Charles Jean-Francois Henault (1685-1770) wrote the work which was translated into many languages including Chinese. Voltaire said that he was "the only man who taught French history". In these volumes his successors continue the account unto the decade just before the French Revolution. This was the last set issued during the Ancien Regime. It covers the history of France from Louix XIV to Louis XVI in 1783. There was still no understanding by most of the government leaders how deep the economic crisis was. (The Assembly of Notables were to be convened in 1787 only to disband when they rejected the stop gap fund to spend more to get out of the economic crisis. It was in 1789 when Louis XVI made the fateful decision to convene the Estates-General). Seldom do the five volume sets appear and in the last volumes much is made of the political events, notes of the United States, but mainly a continuation of the history. Volume III lacks the original gilt lettered black morocco label else a remarkable set. Various publishers with Briand among the most prominent. A Very Good Matched Set / No Dust Jacket as Issued.

Earl of Rochester & Fletcher, John, [John Wilmot, Earl of Rochester]
London: 1685: Printed for Timothy Goodwin at the Maiden-head against St. Dunstans-Church in Fleetstreet. Printed: 1685. 1647-1680 Quarto, 8.7 x 6.6 inches. First edition. A4, a-c4, B-L4, M2. 82 pp. This is a good copy, in paper wrappers. Valentinian is a Jacobean era stage play, a revenge tragedy written by John Fletcher that was originally published in the first Beaumont and Fletcher folio of 1647. The play dramatizes the story of Valentinian III, one of the last of the Roman Emperors, as recorded by the classical historian Procopius. Like many plays in Fletcher's canon, Valentinian was both revived and adapted during the Restoration period. An adaptation under the same title by the poet and playwright John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester was staged in 1684 at Drury Lane and published in 1685. Rochester changed the play's order of scenes and eliminated the final act entirely, making Fletcher's heroine Lucina the central focus of the drama. "An adaptation by Rochester, in poor taste, of Beaumont and Fletcher's tragedy of 'Valentinian' appeared in 1685, under the title 'Valentinian: a Tragedy.' When the play was produced in 1685, Betterton played Aecius with much success and Mrs. Barry appeared as Lucina. Three prologues were printed, one by Mrs. Aphra Behn."

D'Avenant, Charles 1656-1714
London: Printed for Richard Tonson within Grays-Inn-gate next Grays-Inn-lane, 1685. 1685 Quarto, 8.5 x 6.25 inches. Second edition. A2, B-H4, I1. This copy is dirty, with some tears with loss and staining. It is bound in tattered paper boards. D'Avenant wrote this play when he was nineteen years old. He inherited some interest in the theater from his father, the poet and dramatist, Sir William D'Avenant (1606-1668). A political economist, the writing of this play was an anomaly for Charles D'Avenant, whose more acclaimed works are concerned with governmental budgets during wartime and the balance of trade with the far-flung British colonies.

Spratt, Thomas
London: Thomas Newton, 1685. Book. Good. Full-Leather. Presume 1st. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Balance of title and printing information, "Against the Late King, His Present Majesty, and the Government, As It was order'd to be Published by His Late Majesty. In The Savoy: Printed By Thomas Newcomb, one of his majesties Printers-1685." It seems reasonable to assert it as the first appearance of this much reprinted work and we do so for the following reasons. The collector's notes, which I have never caught wrong, with the rare exception of times passage causing reattribution, asserts in his penciled notes on the books first endsheet, verso, as follows, "By Thos. Sprat. Bp. of Rochester- S5065- First Edition-Large Paper copy in contemporary Morocco." Additionally the later printings seem to be done in a slightly smaller format. These boards measure 14 1/4 x 9 5/8", and the text 13 3/4 x 9 1/8", all edges gilt. Collation is folio as are the later printings. A superb old thing, I'll try to give a thorough listing of assets, flaws and structure. The spine is an attractive 6 ribbed affair, with abbreviated title between 2nd and 3rd down, the other tween rib squares are lavishly tooled and gilt worked. The boards have gilt edge lines and square floral cornered embellishments closer to their centers. The inside edges of the boards have a thin gilt-stamped tracery. The exterior hinges seem sturdy if beginning to age with ultra fine cracking. No leather restorers have been used (lanolins/waxes) on archivist advice.

London: 1685: Printed for John Hindmasrh. Printed: 1685. 1652-1715 Octavo, . First (and only)edition A-Z, Aa-Ee8, Ff7 (last verso blank). This copy is bound in full nineteenth century mottled calf, slightly rubbed, persereving the spine and label, a good copy This collection includes poems by the Earl of Rochester, Earl of Roscommon, and Earl of Dorset, Cowley, Tate, Evelyn, Waller, and others. Tate, Nahum (c.1652-1715), poet, playwright, and translator, probably born in Ireland... He lived there as a professional writer (with perhaps a brief period as a schoolmaster between 1687 and 1692) for the rest of his life. During the early 1680s Tate wrote committedly in support of Charles II, and initially welcomed James II"s succession in 1685. But he seems to have become rapidly disenchanted with James"s extreme pro-Catholic policies, and at the revolution of 1688-9 transferred his allegiance to William III, whom he hailed as a pious peacemaker and defender of English liberty. After the death of Thomas Shadwell in 1692, on 8 December Tate was appointed to the poet laureateship, a position which he held for life... In 1677 he published his own collection of Poems: sixty-nine short pieces, including love lyrics, melancholy Flatmanesque reflections, and one poem ('On the Present Corrupted State of Poetry') which provides early evidence of his pious tendencies. An expanded and revised edition of the collection, with many metrical and stylistic improvements, appeared in 1684. [Oxford DNB]

BROWNE, Alexander after Sir Peter LELY
London: Sold by Alex Browne at ye blew balcony in little Queen Street, 1685. An extremely rare counterproof by Alexander Browne, the father of English mezzotint engraving. During the eighteenth century, England became the heart of the mezzotint trade, producing some of the most celebrated engravers and the most beautiful prints that the medium has ever witnessed. Invented in Germany in 1642, mezzotint engraving quickly became popular throughout Europe as a method of reproducing oil paintings. It was eagerly adopted by English printmakers, who instituted so many technological improvements that the method became known as "the English manner". English mezzotints were eagerly collected by European connoisseurs; and continental engravers traveled to England to study the technique. One of the earliest and most important English mezzotint engravers is the printseller Alexander Browne. Although it is unclear whether Browne was the engraver of his prints or simply the publisher, his series of portraits are some the earliest and most accomplished mezzotints produced in England during the seventeenth century. According to Walpole, in 1683 Browne obtained a patent for fourteen years to publish one hundred mezzotints after portraits by Van Dyck and Lely. He seems only to have published them until the death of Charles II, in February of 1685, after which there is no record of his movements. Regarded as the father of the English mezzotint, Browne's important portraits introduced the art of mezzotint into England. This rare print is a portrait of Lady Isabella (1676-1680), the daughter … [Click Below for Full Description]

Toning, dampspotting to portions of text. Annotations in early hand to margins of a few leaves, interior otherwise fresh. * Second edition, "Multis Errobis Purgata." The work by an anonymous author describes the practice of the courts, the forms of writs and an explanation of law terms as they existed during the reign of Edward I. It was John Selden who first called the attention of the public to this ancient treatise, and was instrumental in procuring its publication. While Bracton earns the highest praise as the father of legal learning, Fleta earns a share of it for the illustrations he offered to some of the obscurities found in Bracton. Selden's appended dissertation (pp.453-553) contains many interesting observations about Bracton, Britton, Fleta, and Thornton "and shows what use was made of the Imperial law in England whilst the Romans governed here, at what time it was introduced into this nation, what use was formerly made of i … [Click Below for Full Description]
