BOYLE, Robert
1685 1ed Robert Boyle High Veneration Man’s Intellect anti Atheism Philosophy While mostly known for his contributions to natural philosophy and science, Robert Boyle was highly interested in theology, devoting much of his time to studying the existence of God, using his philosophical and even scientific discoveries as evidence. Works such as ‘Of the High Veneration of Man’s Intellect’ were written directly to defend the Christian faith against atheism, pagans, and even Jews and Mahometans, (as he stated in his own will). In this work, Boyle does note that it often seems as if God is indifferent to what happens on earth considering the destruction that is so prevalent; however, he states that close-minded philosophers such as Epicurus, should view these events as God’s power rather than his absence. Item number: #4596 Price: $1500 BOYLE, Robert Of the high veneration man's intellect owes to God ; peculiarly for his wisedom and power. By a Fellow of the Royal Society. London : Printed by M.F. for Richard Davis, bookseller in Oxford, 1685. First edition.

[Wilcox, Thomas]
London: Printed for Nath. Crouch, 1685. 12mo, pp. [iv], 180, [6, ads] + woodcut frontispiece. Several woodcut illustrations within the text. Contemporary sheep, ruled in blind. Browned, some small marks and stains, some edges slightly worn. Leather darkened and a little worn, endpapers sometime renewed, hinges cracked. Bookplate of Sylvia W. Murray to front pastedown. The rare second, expanded edition of this theological tract issued by the popularising publisher Nathaniel Crouch, attributed to Thomas Wilcox (1622-1687), though the preface 'To the Reader', signed 'T.W.' in the 1676 first edition, is signed 'G.D.' in this one (despite the text being identical). The 84 pages of the 'Guide' in its first edition (which was followed by a dozen leaves of hymns not carried over to this edition) are condensed by smaller type to just 29 here, and the remaining 150 pages of other tracts are new to this printing. The later editions (of which there were at least 8 before 1760) mostly follow this version. ESTC locates just two copies of this edition, at the Folger and Yale, and none of the others at any more than a handful of locations (though there are also copies in the BL and Oxford). ESTC R26363.

Menage Gilles
Giovanni Antonio Chouet,, Genève, 1685. In f° (37,7 x 22,2). Pp. (8), 519, (1), 34, (28). Marca tipografica al titolo. Fioriture diffuse, comunque discreto esemplare in cartone decorato, piuttosto sciupato; titolo manoscritto su tassello in carta al dorso. Ex-libris "Liechtenstein" e "De Guinzbourg" al risguardo ant. Buona edizione del primo dizionario etimologico italiano, di grande importanza per lo studio della nostra lingua. A compilarlo è il letterato e poeta nativo di Angers (1613-1691), a lungo in corrispondenza con la Regina Cristina di Svezia. Brillante e sagace critico letterario, favorito dal Cardinale Mazzarino, riuniva settimanalmente nel chiostro di Notre Dame de Paris il cenacolo dei propri amici letterati in riunioni chiamate Mercuriales. Questo dizionario, uscito alle stampe per la prima volta nel 1669, è una delle pietre miliari dell’etimologia italiana e nonostante Menage fosse socio dell’Accademia della Crusca e non della Academie Française, che lo osteggiava, il trattato non contribuì alle buone relazioni con la società toscana che, nonostante il sostegno del Dati, si sentì scavalcata dall’’uscita di quest’opera, in nome di un diritto territoriale.

Contemporary mottled calf with five raised bands and gilt titles to spine, 7 1/2 x 5 inches, [20],368 pages, 8 engraved plates, no author portrait at frontis and perhaps lacking a front free endpaper; occasional spots wearing through at extremities, three tiny worm holes at top of rear board, one at tail of spine and another slightly larger at head of front joint, some writing scribbled out at top edge of title page, brief inked notation in rear, pages show standard browning and waving as typical of books of this age, a couple of handwritten corrections to text: for example, the word "humeur" has been lined out and "tumeur" has been written next to it in the margin. Overall the book is remarkably clean and sound. Paul Portal was a renowned obstetrician in his day, and he made some ground-breaking observations. His most important contribution to the field of midwifery was likely his recognition of placenta previa and practices for its management. The book consists of more than 80 personal observations in obstetrics with detailed descriptions of problem cases. The plates show monstrous and deformed fetuses.

Sprat (1635-1713) was a friend of Dryden, Evelyn, Cowley, Christopher Wren, and John Wilkins, and was in the midst of those who were to found the Royal Society, of which he was the first historian. "On 21 Sept. 1683 he was installed in the deanery of Westminster, and he was consecrated at Lambeth as bishop of Rochester on 2 Nov. 1684, holding both preferments until his death. .. He marked his gratitude for his new preferments by bringing out at the close of May 1685 A True Account and Declaration of the Horrid Conspiracy against the late King, his present Majesty and the Government, which, though anonymous, was known to be the composition of Sprat. It purported to be an account of the Rye House plot, and he drew it up after much hesitation, as he subsequently pleaded, at the command of Charles II, who granted 'free liberty to consu … [Click Below for Full Description]

CHARAS Moyse
Paris, chez Laurent d’Houry. 1685. 7 ff. (frontispice, titre, candido lectori et préface), 305 pp., 19 pp (table des matières, Privilège du Roy, Relation de ce qui s’est passé en une nouvelle composition de Theriaque que l’Auteur de ce livre a fait en public, datée à la fin du 22 mai 1670). Demi-maroquin vert, dos à nerfs orné, tranches rouges (Pouillet). Nouvelle édition revue et augmentée. Moyse Charas, « savant apothicaire », ouvrit une officine à l'enseigne « Aux vipères d'or » dans le faubourg Saint-Germain à Paris avant d'être nommé par Antoine d'Aquin en 1671 comme sous-démonstrateur de chimie au Jardin du Roy. Charas reste surtout connu pour sa Pharmacopée royale galénique et chimique, rédigée d'après les cours qu'il avait dispensés au Jardin royal. La pharmacopée de Charas connut trois éditions (la première en 1676) et fut traduite dans toutes les langues d'Europe, ainsi qu'en Chinois. La thériaque, l'une des compositions les plus complexes que la pharmacie ait connues et dont l'origine remonte à plus de vingt siècles, jouissait au Moyen Age d'une renommée universelle comme panacée que l'on appliquait à toutes sortes de maladies. Elle était censée posséder des vertus admirables pour la vieillesse. On l'utilisait aussi comme contre-poison. La thériaque originelle est celle d'Andromaque, médecin de Néron. La recette, complexe fait appel à des substances appartenant aux trois règnes de la nature, la vipère figurant en tête de la formule. Etiquette de la librairie Alain Brieux. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

BELLORI (Giovanni Pietro)
Romae Apud Io: Iocbumde Rubeis ad Templum S. Mariae de Pace suis sumptibus & cura cum Privilegio Summi Pontificis, 1685. Folio, 338 x 225 mms., pp. [x], 20 [21 - 22 divisional title], 16 [2], 15 [16 errata], engraved frontispiece and 92 full-page engraved plates, contemporary quarter calf, marbled boards; joints cracked and front cover holding on for dear life, boards worn. A working copy. The painter, biographer, and antiquary Giovani Pietro Bellori was" brought up in the household of Francesco Angeloni, a well-to-do writer, collector, and antiquarian. It was Angeloni who established the intellectual climate in which Bellori's interests developed. Angeloni assembled, probably with Bellori's help, what was then one of the finest private collections of classical antiquities, important enough to be noted in contemporary guidebooks. His Notes on Museums, a guide to the art treasures of Rome, which appeared in 1664, contains an addendum on the remains of ancient Roman painting that is said to be the first essay ever written on this subject. Both before and after this date he worked on his Lives of the Modern Artists, which was published in 1672" (Christopher L.C.E. Witcombe: "Art & Theory in Baroque Europe"). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Very Good: Vellum cover with gilt coat of arms: Illustrations throughout: Fold Outs Intact and Awesome. Originally written in 1585 by Rosini, this edition was edited and notated by Thomas Dempster, scholar. Dempster dedicated his edition to James I which won him an invitation to court and a position as royal historiographer A truly outstanding aspect of this volume, though, is the outstanding fold outs and illustrations starting with the title page. This illustrations has it all: Romulus and Remus in the lower right feeding from the wolf and all kinds of Roman symbolism right around the page. There are various illustrations of coinage, a PRISTINE fold-out map of Rome, a couple of great (and again, pristine) fold-outs of gladiators fighting along with a variety of illustrations of smaller bits of Roman cultural artifacts. Written in Latin, the block of the text looks good although the binding is loose at the front (see photos). LIbrary markings inside on front spare facing title page. Vellum cover with gilt coat-of-arms of what appears to be two lions standing on either side of a shield with a fleur-de-lays on top of the shield, the front of it having four lions in quarters facing the same direction atop two white block split by a solid stripe.

[De Soto]. [Citri de la Guette, Samuel de Broe].
First French edition of the Relacam Verdadeira -first published in 1557, which is known in a single copy. A rare book consisting of the anonymous eyewitness' account of De Soto's expedition to Florida ad the Southern United States. Furthermore, the work includes the dramatic tale of Juan Ortiz, a member of the Narvaez expedition captured by the Indians and rescued by De Soto. The anonymous Portuguese original is a known in a single copy and is found at the NYPL. This is the first translation into French, made by the 17thcentury French historian Citri de la Guette, to compete with the later Florida del Ynca of Garcilasso de la Vega (published in Lisbon in 1605), considering this less well-known and historically more accurate -and considering the contemporaneity a consistent argument- relation was due for notoriety. It is the basis and inspiration for the English translation of the following year "A relation of the invasion and conquest of Florida by the Spaniards" (1686). The NUC mistakenly records an edition of 1589 (actually the 1699 reprint by Couterot). "The English translation, the first account in the English language of the settlement of California, is inferior to the French edition being "erroneous as to numbers, distances, and names of places"-- Sabin."
