Jollain
G. Jollain rue St. Jaque a Lentant Iesus 1687, Paris. Rare atlas by Jollain with engraved title and 38 engraved maps. This small atlas of 38 maps is known by several publisher names. The first edition that is recorded, is that of Jean Boisseau in 1643. The maps of this atlas are faithful copies of the "Atlas Minor" of Mercator-Hondius of 1628, this atlas was copied by N. Picart (1657-59).The same edition exists with Jollain's address. Jollain finally reissued the atlas in 1667 with some modifications. The scales are most often removed (because too inaccurate) and replaced by the mention of "excudit" by Jollain and sometimes the date of 1667. The titles of Russia and Muscovy were interchanged.

Très bon état de la reliure. Intérieur frais, qui n'a pas été lavé. Quelques légères taches sans conséquence à quelques feuillets. La reliure n'est étonnamment pas signée mais est dans le goût des reliures de luxe du second Empire (vers 1870/1880). Edition originale posthume rare.

L'exemplaire relié en veau à l'époque est donné avec la date de 1686, aussi à Paris chez Guillaume Cavelier (Morgand, Bulletin, n°14.925).

Camillo Cauallo e Michele Luigi Mutii, 1687. First Italian language edition. Vellum. 4to. (24),663,(1)pp. Withe the blank leaf c2. Woodcut device on title and verso of final leaf. Apparently lacking the portrait of San Vitores (see below). Cont. vellum. Title with a blank section discolored towards the bottom, but overall a very nice clean copy. Front free endpaper removed. Very good +. The first Italian edition of the Spanish life and martyrdom of Jesuit Father Diego Luis de San Vitores (1627-1672) and his missionary work, largely on Guam and the Mariana Islands, where he met his death. I believe that this edition should have the one engraved plate, but numerous citations, including the primary OCLC record do not record a plate. [Attributes: First Edition]

Confucius
Paris: Andre Cramoisy for Daniel Horthemels, 1687. Folio, 22 x 36 cm; cxxiv, 108, 105-108, 21, 159, xx, 20, 8, [2], 23-106, [2] pages; recently rebound in full calf; very good condition. Full page portrait of Confucius, fold-out map of China.This is the first substantial printing of Confucius in the West and the first translation of the Analects into any European language.It includes three of The Four Books (四書; Si Shu), The Great Learning (大學; Da Xue; here transliterated Ta Hio), The Doctrine of the Mean(中庸; Zhong Yong; here transliterated Chum Yum), and The Analects(論語; Lun Yu).These are preceded by a lengthy introduction (100+ pages) and followed by a tabular chronology of the Chinese emperors (again, 100+ pages). The title page presents this as the work of four Jesuits who had each spent substantial time in China: Philippe Couplet (1623-1693; Belgian), Christian Herdtrich (1625-1684; Austrian), Prospero Intorcetta (1625-1696; Italian) and Francis Rougemont (1624-1676; Belgian).In reality it is the culmination of a century of Jesuit scholarship on Confucius that began with Matteo Ricci. The Jesuits saw Confucius as the key to converting Chinese intellectuals to Christianity.If the Jesuits were familiar with Confucian teachings. they could converse easily with their target audience.Even more important, they attempted to demonstrate to both China and the West that "Confucianism" is a social philosophy that is not tied to Buddhism or Taoism and that is compatible with Christianity.This perspective pervades the 100-page introduction, and the striking port … [Click Below for Full Description]

VOC-WIC SHARES FRAUD].
16 pp.An anonymous and undated pamphlet rebutting one published at Amsterdam in 1687 by the Amsterdam solicitor (“advocaat”) Mr. Nicolaas Muys van Holy (1644-ca.1710), a descendant of a well-known family of Regents from Dordrecht. Muys van Holy's pamphlet, Middelen en motiven om het kopen en verkopen van Oost- en West-Indische actien, ... te beswaren met een impost, opposes the rampant abuses in the trade in shares (“actiënhandel”) of the Dutch East and West India Companies, and he proposes an impost tax on these usually not very transparent and often fraudulent transactions by the “actionisten” (traders in shares) at the Amsterdam stock market, detrimental to the Republic in general and to the individual well-meaning shareholders. A host of pamphlets followed in the years 1687-1688.The author of our pamphlet, probably a merchant from Rotterdam, also strongly opposes the abuses - he gives striking and shocking examples, mirroring the rise of early capitalism in the 17th century in general and the procedures, speculations and abuses at the stock exchange in particular. He is also, however, a fierce opponent of taxation, and says it would profit Amsterdam at the expense of nearly all other cities.Edges and spine frayed, but otherwise in very good condition.l Knuttel, 12622a; STCN (6 copies); Tiele, 54863; Joseph de la Vega (transl.

Gisbert Cuper. 1644-1716
Utrecht: (Trajecti ad Rhenum) Apud Franciscum Halma, Acad. Typogr., 1687, Quarto. Harpocrates was adapted by the Greeks from the Egyptian child God Horus, who represented the newborn sun, rising each day at dawn. Harpocrates's name was a Hellenization of the Egyptian Har-pa-khered or Heru-pa-khered, meaning "Horus the Child". In the second century B.C., Egyptians connected Harpocrates with the mystic cult of the Egyptian goddess Isis. Harpocrates holds a finger to its lip for the Egyptians a symbolic gesture representing childhood. Yet the Greeks mistook for a hush for silence., misinterpreting Harpocrates as the personification of silence, and this particular work is a study of statues and other art from classical antiquity that depict these later figures of silence. And again, the Roman interpretation added strength to the Mystery of silence.The frontispiece signed and dated in the plate: Joh. van der Avele invention and fecit. Title page in red and black. This edition is enhanced with a letter of Etienne Le Moyne; this text has a half-title and the second text: Monumenta Antiqua. Cuper's research is a precursor to art history and Winckelmann.Brunet 6, no. 22603; Cicognara 3212; Ebert 5512; Graesse 2,308

[1], [1 blank], 182, [13], [1 blank] pp. First edition of the Dutch translation of a work on travels through Europe, undertaken and written by Gilbert Burnet (1643-1715). Burnet was a Scottish historian, philosopher, and later Bishop of Salisbury. In 1685 Burnet left Great-Brittain to travel Europe, where he visited the Netherlands, France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland. During his stay in the Netherlands, Burnet got exiled from England by King James II, after writing a pamphlet advising the Dutch prince William and his wife Mary not to support James for the repeal of the Test Act. The text is written in the form of letters, starting in Zurich, to Milan, Florence, Rome, and ending in Nijmegen, where he noted everything that "seemed most remarkable" and was unheard of in any other travelogue.Binding rubbed along the extremities, paper cracked at the hinges (hinges still firm) and spine discoloured.

Folio (34.5 x 22.5 cm). With engraved title-page, engraved portrait of De Ruyter, 7 engraved double-page plates by Sebastiaen Stoopendaal and 1 engraved plate by Joseph Mulder. Late 18th-century calf, gold-tooled spine. [10], "1063" [=1065], [23] pp. Large paper copy of the first edition, in the original Dutch, of the standard biography of the great Dutch naval hero Admiral Michiel Adriaansz. de Ruyter (1607-1676), who scored several major victories against the French and English, the best known abroad being the Raid on Chatham, one of the worst defeats of the British Royal Navy. For the present work Brandt used numerous original documents from De Ruyter's son and other private individuals, as well as from official government sources. "This resulted in a book that was not only based on good information, but through his exalted, lucid and engaging style also became a true folk-book in the best sense of the word" (NNBW).De Ruyter fought the English off the coast of West Africa, the Caribbean, temporarily took St John's, New Foundland, and even considered retaking New York.While the binding is somewhat scuffed along the spine, the book itself is in very good condition, with only an occasional spot.

Il testo,in 980 versi in lode di Bacco - immaginato ad assaggiare i vini della regione offrendone un divertente catalogo - e dell'amata Arianna, descrive una festa orgiastica a Poggio Imperiale presso Firenze, ove i personaggi della Corte di Cosimo III si ubriacarono. Il Redi sembra fosse astemio e sviluppò il componimento facendo anche una requisitoria contro tè, caffè, sidro, birra e i diversi prodotti non italiani derivanti dalla distillazione alcoolica. Francesco Redi, figlio di Gregorio nonchè medico del Granduca Ferdinando II, nasce ad Arezzo nel 1626 e si laurea in medicina e filosofia a Pisa nel 1647. Nei primi anni Cinquanta è ospite a Roma del cardinale Colonna, poi torna a Firenze e va al servizio dei Medici: grazie alla sua conoscenza di lingue e dialetti - francese, inglese, spagnolo e perfino arabo - viene incaricato insieme ad altri studiosi della correzione e dell' ampliamento del vocabolario della Crusca, della cui Accademia … [Click Below for Full Description]

Er ist vor allem aufgrund seiner französischen Bibelübersetzung, der Bibel von Port-Royal bekannt. Von 1666 bis Oktober 1667 war Sacy in der Bastille inhaftiert. Während dieser Zeit widmete er sich seinem späteren Hauptwerk, der Bibelübersetzung ins Französische, mit der sein Bruder Antoine (+ 1658) im Jahr 1657 begonnen hatte. An dieser Übersetzung und den zugehörigen Bibelkommentaren arbeitete Sacy bis zu seinem Lebensende im Jahr 1684. Die Bibelübersetzung entstand von katholischer Seite auch in Reaktion auf die Bibelübersetzungen der Reformatoren. Basis der Übersetzung war die Vulgata, wobei auch Schriften der Kirchenväter und griechische sowie hebräische Quellen textkritisch hinzugezogen wurden. Die Bibelübersetzung war nicht nur das Werk eines Einzelnen, sondern viele Theologen und Freunde im Umkreis von Port-Royal wirkten daran mit.[4] Das Neue Testament erschien 1667 bei Daniel Elzevier in Mons und ist auch unter Bezeichnung Nouveau Testament de Mons oder "Bibel von Mons" bekannt.

[China] [Anonymous].
1687. 4to (206 x 144 mm & 203 x 142 mm). 40 pp. -from page 13 is found "Carta de un doctor Parisiense a un Missionero Apostolico de la China, que le ha propuesto diversas dudas", 16 pp. Unbound. First title with lower right marginal loss of paper, upper margin with minor loss of paper, away from text, foxing; overall a good unsophisticated copy.- Extremely rare Spanish translation of two letters addressed to a missionary posted in China. The first letter is composed of two, both dealing with the doubts expressed by the aforementioned missionary in regards to the path to be followed in his mission; this reply comes from two different unnamed authors, who recommend different ways to continue the apostolic mission, one for instance, making reference to the Chinese's interest in Astrology, argues the value of astrology towards the knowledge of God; historic references as Yam Quam Sien's persecution of missionaries are also found. The second deals with a variety of subjects, including Confucius and Confucian philosophy, the names and treatments of Regents and God. Both are exceedingly rare, no copy is registered as having sold at auction, no copy of the Segunda Cartais found in public institutions in Spain, only one complete copy of the first at the Real Academia de la Historia (Madrid, Spain). The titles mention both are translations of French letters, which we have been unable to find. Not in Palau.

[1], [1 blank], 182, [13], [1 blank] pp. First edition of the Dutch translation of a work on travels through Europe, undertaken and written by Gilbert Burnet (1643-1715). Burnet was a Scottish historian, philosopher, and later Bishop of Salisbury. In 1685 Burnet left Great-Brittain to travel Europe, where he visited the Netherlands, France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland. During his stay in the Netherlands, Burnet got exiled from England by King James II, after writing a pamphlet advising the Dutch prince William and his wife Mary not to support James for the repeal of the Test Act. The text is written in the form of letters, starting in Zurich, to Milan, Florence, Rome, and ending in Nijmegen, where he noted everything that "seemed most remarkable" and was unheard of in any other travelogue.Binding rubbed along the extremities, paper cracked at the hinges (hinges still firm) and spine discoloured.

Het leven en bedryf van den heere Michiel de Ruiter. Amsterdam, for Wolfgang, Waesberge, Boom, van Someren and Goethals, 1687 (engraved title-page: printed by Pieter and Joan Blaeu, 1686). Folio (34.5 x 22.5 cm). With engraved title-page, engraved portrait of De Ruyter, 7 engraved double-page plates by Sebastiaen Stoopendaal and 1 engraved plate by Joseph Mulder. Late 18th-century calf, gold-tooled spine.

For the present work Brandt used numerous original documents from De Ruyter's son and other private individuals, as well as from official government sources. "This resulted in a book that was not only based on good information, but through his exalted, lucid and engaging style also became a true folk-book in the best sense of the word" (NNBW).De Ruyter fought the English off the coast of West Africa, the Caribbean, temporarily took St John's, New Foundland, and even considered retaking New York.While the binding is somewhat scuffed along the spine, the book itself is in very good condition, with only an occasional spot.

Thornton). An Italian Capuchin missionary, Cavazzi (1621-1678) first arrived at Luanda in Angola in 1654.

L'Extrait du Privilège nous apprend que l'édition a été partagée entre Estienne Du Castin et Guillaume Cavelier.

Antoine Varillas (1624-1696), né à Guéret (Creuse) obtint à Paris la charge d'historiographe de Gaston d'Orléans. Admis à l'intimité du savant Pierre Dupuy, garde de la bibliothèque de Paris, il profita de sa complaisance pour examiner une foule de manuscrits dont il fit des extraits.

BLEGNY Nicolas de
A Paris: Chez Etienne Michallet, 1687. Fine. Chez Etienne Michallet, A Paris 1687, In-12 (9x15,5cm), (22) 358pp. (4), relié. - 43920 - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale ilustrée de 13 figures, rare. La première, représentant un chinois prenant du thé, a été répétée et placée au frontispice. Les autres gravures figurent les ustensiles necessaires à la préparation du café, du chocolat et du thé. Privilège partagé avec Thomas Almaury à Lyon, l'éditeur officiel de l'ouvrage de Blegny. Bien que l'achevé d'imprimer soit daté du 1er décembre 1686 à la fin du privilège, l'édition de Thomas Almaury à Lyon est également à la date de 1687. Reliure en pleine basane brune mouchetée. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre de basane brune. Coiffe de tête arrachée. Coins émoussés et dénudés. Traces de frottement. Bon exemplaire. Traité du thé, du café et du chocolat. L'auteur en détaille les usages, la manière de les préparer et de les boire, et décrit sa façon de les utiliser en médecine, en sirop, en sels essentiels... afin de prévenir et de guérir de nombreuses maladies ; l'auteur employant ces boissons de manière médicale associé à des régimes spécifiques. Nicolas de Blegny fut un infatigable médecin, très versé dans les méthodes prophylactiques. Il fut à la fois célèbre comme médecin du roi et chirurgien de la reine, et souvent sévèrement critiqué pour ses méthodes jugées sinon discutables, au pire proche d'un certain charlatanisme.
