      Amberes: Por Henrico y Cornelio Verdussen, 1687 Amberes: Por Henrico y Cornelio Verdussen, 1687. 2nd rev. ed.. Contemporary vellum. G+. "8º, (141x98mm.); [16], 269 p., [2] white leaves; sign.: ¶-¶8, A-R8.- // Contemporary vellum binding, with tear to upper of spine label; pen annotation to title page erroneously dating the work as 1777; worm trace concentrated in gutter margin of pp. 13-18, affecting one letter on each page; moisture to right margin from pp. 255 to the end and short gallery, also in the right margin, at pp. 267-269.- // Prov.: Ex-libris contemporary handwritten in cover, in ink,  Pons .- // About Pierre Paul Billet, Pedro Pablo Billet, as this Madrid-based Parisian named himself, barely anything is known, other than what this sentence states. However, following the different editions successively modified of his grammar manual, we can deduce some additional information. In the first of them 'Arte para aprender facilmente a leer, escrivir y en poco tiempo hablar la lengua francesa', where he hid his name under his initials P.B., which was printed in Lyon in 1672(1), he said in the preface that he had been in Madrid for 8 years, so he must have arrived in Madrid in about 1664. However, in 1672, or perhaps the following year, he had to move to Zaragoza to publish this Arte, because in 1673 he published a new book there, already conceptualized and exposed as  Gramática (the  Grammar manual) and not as  Arte , with no mention of having published 'Arte' in Lyon(2). It is not possible to have any doubts about the authorship of both being the same, because in a eulogy to the author contained in the edition of Lyon, he is called Pedro, and because the structure and textual content of the first chapters of both works are by the same hand. In Zaragoza he was probably maintained or helped by Pedro de Guzmán, III Marquis of Montealegre, or by his wife, the III Countess of Villaumbrosa, not only because he dedicated to her both that 1673 edition of the Grammar and the translation of some memoirs, also printed in Zaragoza in 1677(3) but because Billet reappeared in Madrid in 1678, exactly the same year as the Marquis death. To support this hypothesis of his return we can also add that in 1708, in a 'Disertación sobre las gramáicas de Maunory y de Sobrino', included as an introduction to his 'Nouvelle grammaire espagnolle' Jean de Vayrac, critic of Maunory s and admirer of Billet, said about him (f. eii r),  he has been teaching French to the gentlemen of the Madrid court amid general applause for 40 years . Also, just before his reappearance in Madrid in 1678, he published what he called the second edition of Grammar in Brussels in 1677, the work we are offering here, for which he had completely reformed the second part of what had been published in Zaragoza  on the construction of sentences in French and increasing notably the repertoire of proverbs and usual educational formulae. Not satisfied, repeating the rapid succession that the editions of Lyon and Zaragoza experienced, in 1678 he published Grammar again, this time in Madrid(4), keeping the text contained in the edition of Brussels unchanged, but preceding it with a 'Disertación crítica contra el Arte de la lengua francesa publicado por Juan Pedro Jarón' and adding a novel third part dedicated to poetic art. Curiously the 'Dissertation' begins with a critique of the use of the word  Arte ( Art ), which he had used at the beginning of his career. Finally, the Madrid edition was reprinted in 1708, with no content changes other than the suppression of the criticism of Jarón. The grammatical contents of this edition have been studied in Denise Fischer:  La Gramática francesa de Pierre Paul Billet: contenús et méthode , en 'Documents pour l histoire du français langue étrangère ou seconde' 18 (1996): 213-223.- // (1) Por D.

        Vigessima relaçam historica, pertencente ao estado, successos, & progressos da Liga Sagrada contra Turcos: publicada nesta Corte de Lisboa a 12. de Ianeiro, do anno de 1687 .

      Lisbon, Na Officina de Miguel Deslandes, 1687. - 4°, disbound, in folding marbled cardboard case with calf label. Woodcut vignette of floral basket on title page. Woodcut initial. Overall in good to very good condition. 12 pp., 1 folding engraved map (30 x 38.5 cm.) signed "Duarte fecit." *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this compendium of reports regarding the latest news from the front lines of the war with the Ottoman Empire, as well as events in Venice, Greece, and Dalmatia. The Imperial army was facing the Turks at the border of modern Croatia and Hungary; among the events mentioned are the withdrawal of the Polish army to its headquarters, the loss of the fortresses of Sicklosch and Darda, and the attack on the Bridge of Esseck (Osijek) by the Imperial Army. The map depicts the bridge, the fortresses guarding either end, and the surrounding area, including two branches of the Darva River. The 8-kilometer-long wooden bridge at Osijek, built by Suleiman the Magnificent in 1566, was considered one of the wonders of the world. Osijek, in modern Croatia near the Hungarian border, became a Habsburg dominion on 29 September 1687, soon after the Imperial army decisively defeated the Turks at the Battle of Mohács (12 August 1687). Two commanders of the Imperial Army are mentioned: Charles, Duke of Lorraine, and Louis of Baden-Baden, Elector of Bavaria and Margrave.We suspect that this account was compiled slightly before the Battle of Mohacs, a crushing defeat for the Ottoman Empire. Although the locations mentioned are near Mohacs, and the bridge at Osijek played an important role in the battle, the descriptions seem to be of several skirmishes rather than a single battle. Also, a rumor is reported that Sultan Mehmed IV had been garrotted, and his younger brother Suleiman II had succeeded him. Suleiman did ascend to the throne in 1687, but Mehmed was not murdered, merely imprisoned. The Battle of Mohács occurred soon after Suleiman's ascension.Aside from events that occurred around Osijek and Darda, the account mentions Cossacks, emissaries from Muscovy, and the Crimean Tartars. From Venice comes news of victories in the Morea (Peloponnesian Peninsular) and fireworks planned in the Castello neighborhood to celebrate a change of rule in Naples.*** Arouca R327.

        Discours anatomiques sur la structure des visceres, sçavoir du foye, du cerveau, des reins, de la ratte, du polype du coeur, et des poulmons

      1687 - de (18), 374, (2) pages et 2 Paris, Laurent d'houry, 1687, in-12, de (18), 374, (2) pages et 2 planches, plein veau de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs orné, tranches mouchetées (mors restaurés), Seconde édition française, peu courante, d'un des textes les plus importants du XVIIe siècle en cardiologie dû au fondateur de l'anatomie microscopique. Les éditions originales latines parurent respectivement en 1661 et en 1666 à Bologne. A partir de 1669 (date de la première édition anglaise), le De pulmonibus observationes anatomicae et le De viscerum structura exercitatio anatomica de Malpighi parurent ensemble, qu'ils soient traduits en anglais, en allemand ou en français. la première édition française fut publiée en 1683. À partir d'observations, réalisées à l'aide d'un microscope, sur le poumon d'une grenouille vivante, Malpighi décrivit pour la première fois les capillaires qui relient les artères aux veines. En cela, il complétait les travaux d'Harvey et fut le premier à prouver expérimentalement que le système cardio-vasculaire, la circulation sanguine, est un système clos dans lequel le sang circule. Cinq plus tard, ayant brillamment éprouvé sa méthode histologique, Malpighi publia une série d'observations anatomiques dans lesquelles il décrivait pour la première fois les glomérules rénaux (ce qui lui permit d'appuyer les théories iatromécaniques de Borelli), les pyramides de Malpighi, les globules rouges, etc. Les deux planches, intercalés après les feuillets préliminaires, représentent des coupes de poumon et les capillaires de Malpighi. Malgré de faibles mouillures sur 50 premiers feuillets, bon exemplaire, portant plusieurs ex-libris du XVIIe et du XVIIIe sur le faux-titre et la page de titre.

        Medicina mentis [et] Medicina corporis

      1687 - deux ouvrages en un volume, Amsterdam, Magnus & Rieuwertz, 1687, in-4, deux ouvrages en un volume, [8] ff, 224 pp. - [2] ff, 59 pp, [1] p, veau havane de l'époque, dos à nerfs et fleuronné, tranches mouchetées rouges, nom de l'auteur manuscrit sur le plat supérieur, PREMIÈRE ÉDITION de cette réunion du Medicina mentis et du Medicina corporis, oeuvres majeures du mathématicien, médecin et philosophe allemand postcartésien Ehrenfried Walter von Tschirnhaus (1651-1708). Rare. La seconde partie a son titre propre, à la date de 1686 : Medicina corporis seu cogitationes admodum probabiles de conservanda sanitate. Plusieurs figures gravées sur bois, et quelques unes sur cuivre, dans le texte de la première partie, La Medicina mentis, qui inclut les principaux travaux philosophiques et mathématiques de Tschirnhaus, invite, par une hygiène de la pensée, à faire un usage sain de la raison. Cet ouvrage eut une importance philosophique considérable à l'aube du siècle des Lumières et contribua à la renommée de son auteur. Tschirnhaus divise son travail en deux sections : la première expose "à quelle occasion et par quelle méthode [il a] trouvé la voie selon [lui] la meilleure de toutes celles que nous puissions prendre en cette vie, et qui consiste en la découverte de la vérité par nous-mêmes" ; la seconde permet de découvrir "de quelle manière l'on peut avancer toujours sans commettre d'erreur, en découvrant un nombre sans cesse croissant de vérités nouvelles". Sur le plan des mathématiques, en partant de l'idée que les êtres mathématiques sont formés par le mouvement rapporté à quelques chose de fixe, Tschirnhaus propose une génération nouvelle et universelle des courbes. Il fait une généralisation du mode de description des coniques au moyen de leurs foyers et divise les courbes en plusieurs genres. Ehrenfried Walter von Tschirnhaus (1651-1708), fut recommandé par Spinoza à Oldenburg en 1674, puis à Huygens et Leibniz par la suite. Il fut chargé d'enseigner les mathématiques à l'un des enfants de Colbert. Il fut également promu membre de l'académie des sciences en 1682.

        ARTS ADVANCEMENT OR THE MOST EXACT, LINEAL, SWIFT, SHORT, AND EASY METHOD OF SHORT-HAND-WRITING HITHERTO EXTANT

      London: Printed for the Author, 1687. Third Edition, Corrected and Enlarged n. This is a surprisingly well-preserved copy of a handbook of shorthand symbols composed by the man considered the most important 17th century stenographer. William Mason (fl. 1672-1709; d. 1719?) issued three influential treatises on shorthand: the present work, first published in 1682, and the more romantically titled "A Pen Pluck'd from an Eagles Wing" (1672) and "La Plume Volante" ("The Flying Pen") of 1707. Developed over half a century, Mason's system used 423 characters, and words were written as they sound--a fact that makes it of interest to modern linguists for the light it can shed on 17th century English pronunciation. Because Mason's system was adapted by Thomas Gurney for use as the official shorthand of the criminal courts at the Old Bailey, his influence on stenography stretched into the 19th century. Mason's one-shilling publications both supplemented his income and promoted his services as an instructor of stenography; the title page here advertises lessons available at his "Writing School, the Hand and Pen in Grace-Church Street." It is easy to imagine this slim volume slipped into the pocket of one of his pupils, perhaps a clerk in the City of London or at the Inns of Court. Due to their ephemeral nature and heavy practical use, all editions of "Arts Advancement" are uncommon, and existing copies are often dilapidated.. 153 x 73 mm. (6 x 3"). 24 leaves, printed on one side and arranged as 12 openings. Third Edition, Corrected and Enlarged. Contemporary sprinkled sheepskin, blind-ruled covers, flat spine. ENTIRELY ENGRAVED by Ben Rhodes, with frontispiece portrait of the author, the text within decorative laurel leaf frames. Alston VIII, 147; Wing M-942. Small dent near tail of spine, lower corners rubbed to boards, extremities a bit worn, two small patches of lost leather to lower board, but the original insubstantial binding still solid and generally quite pleasing; one leaf with a couple of small ink marks, a few corner creases, otherwise A FINE COPY INTERNALLY, quite clean and fresh. This is a surprisingly well-preserved copy of a handbook of shorthand symbols composed by the man considered the most important 17th century stenographer.

        De componendis gravium momentis dissertatio

      Angeli Bernabo 1687 - Rome: Angeli Bernabo, 1687. 4to, pp. [viii, including initial blank leaf], 14, [2, blank] (old shelf-mark on initial blank, small red ink-stamp on title). Contemporary vellum. FIRST EDITION, rare, of this treatise on the mechanics and theories of gravitation of Galileo and Torricelli. This work was part of the effort of the 'Galileans' centred on Borelli and Torricelli, and patronised by Queen Christina, to keep the spirit of the new science alive in the decades following Galileo’s condemnation and death. De componendis gravium is a reply to the Jesuit Giovanni Francesco Vanni’s Specimen de Momentis gravium (Rome, 1684). Vanni attempted to refute the Galilean-Torricellian proposition that the ratio of the components of the weights of a body on an inclined plane and the perpendicular is the same as that of the vertical height and the length of the inclined plane. Giordani demonstrates the correctness of the Galilean-Torricellian proposition by means of four theorems, in which he assumes the Galilean propositions about bodies falling under gravity. Giordani’s work was itself the subject of criticism from the Jesuits, to which he responded a year later in Fundamentum doctrinae motus gravium (Rome, 1688). Giordani (1633-1711) was born in Bitonto in the kingdom of Naples but fled to Venice in 1652 after having killed his brother-in-law. Having learned there of the fleet that Innocent X was preparing to move against the Ottomans, he went to Rome and enlisted. It was during his subsequent military life that he developed an interest in mathematics. From 1661 he devoted himself entirely to the study of mathematics, and established relationships with scholars such as Michelangelo Ricci and Giovanni Alfonso Borelli. In 1663 he was appointed mathematician to Queen Christina of Sweden, during her final stay in Rome. In 1667, a year after its foundation by Louis XIV, he became a lecturer in mathematics at the French Academy in Rome, and in 1685 he gained the chair of mathematics at the prestigious Sapienza University in Rome. In 1680 Giordano published his Euclide restituto which contains an important contribution to non-Euclidean geometry, the work for which he is best known today: he introduced the geometrical figure now known as a ‘Saccheri quadrilateral’, after its use by Girolamo Saccheri in his Euclides ab omni naevo vindicatus (Milan, 1733). Giordano met Leibniz in Rome when Leibniz stayed there during his journey through Italy in the years 1689–90. The two men exchanged letters on the Euclidean definition of a straight line.

        THE HISTORY OF THE MOST RENOWNED DON QUIXOTE OF MANCHA: And His Trust y Squire Sancho Pancha, Now Made English According to the Humour of Our Modern Language. And Adorned with Several Copper Plates

      London: Tho. Hodgkin (printer) Sold By John Newton, 1687. Full-Leather. Folio (11 5/8" x 7 1/2"). THE FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION IN ENGLISH; [18]616[i.e., 612]3; with errata at the end. Translated by John Phillips, with copper engraved frontispiece and 8 copper engraved plates, each with two illustrations. Contemporary paneled calf, expertly rebacked to style. The text is lightly toned, but overall, very good and clean. All edges are stained red. One plate with small loss to fore-edge, not affecting the illustrations; another plate with fore-edge trimmed, but not near the illustrations. Ggg3 with repaired tears; small ink smear on the Fourth Book title page. In all, a very good copy, complete and quite scarce as such. Don Quixote has stood the test of centuries; unquestionably, it stands as classic world literature. Cervantes brilliantly explores illusion and reality, as well as sanity and insanity. Let us quote Printing and the Mind of Man: "The first part of Don Quixote came out in 1605. What had begun as a simple satire on the tedious chivalric romances of the time broadened into a sweeping panorama of Spanish society; and it was this, the variety, the liveliness, and the gibes at the famous, which won it instant fame. The writing of the second part was stimulated by the publication of a spurious 'second part' in 1614; and it was an even greater success. There is less knockabout, and Cervantes had come to love and understand his two heroes, whom he had at first introduced to ridicule. He died on 23 April 1616, ironically, on the same day as Shakespeare." The last recorded sale of a complete first edition of Don Quixote, printed in Madrid in 1605/1615, occurred in 1989 and sold for $1.5 million.

Early owner signatures to front free endpaper and title page, interior otherwise clean. * Fourth edition, published the same year as a quarto. With a glossary of terms. Written by Colbert for Louis XIV, the Ordonnance of 1681 is significant as the first modern maritime code and a landmark in the history of insurance. As a clear exposition of maritime insurance it soon became a standard reference. More important, Articles 9, 10 and 11 appear to be the first published statement on life insurance. It describes circumstances in which lives may be insured to deal with situations unique to passengers, crews and slaves, most notably capture for ransom. This distinction was exploited initially by dealers in the slave trade, but it had a wider meaning as well. As Tim Armstrong has shown, it marked the beginning of a discourse that considered slaves as people rather than goods.

An attractive map with an inset of Charleston Harbour, the mouths of the Ashley and Cooper Rivers and showing the settlement before it was moved from the west bank of the Ashley. This copy in Burden's second state, with period hand colouring. An excellent copy of Burden's second state with the number '18' engraved at the lower left corner. Burden notes that the cartographer C.J. Vooght draws on unpublished sources for this map, but that the "southern regions still call upon old Spanish nomenclature ... The immediate Carolina coastline is ... compressed on a northerly axis and does not utilise the advances made in the Second Lords Proprietors map of 1682 ... The more southerly of the Outer Bank sounds differ from earlier depictions and Cape Hatteras is less prominent also. The soundings off the more northerly Outer Banks are from an unknown but presumably English source" (Burden).

Justus Danckerts was probably ranked the highest of the skilled engravers of the seventeenth centry.

        Pas kaart van de Riviern Commewini Suriname en Cupenama

      Amsterdam: Johannes van Keulen, 1687. Copper-engraved map, full contemporary hand-colouring, heightened with gold. A very fine copy of this excellent and very early chart of Suriname: the area that the Dutch accepted in lieu of New York. This beautifully-finished map was published by innovative Dutch cartographer and publisher Johannes van Keulen in the 1687 second edition of the third volume his Sea-Atlas [or Zee-Fakkel ]. The chart concentrates on coastal Suriname, with the site of the capital identified as Starrenbergh Para Maribo t' fort Zeelandia. To the left is the Rio Marrawini (the river Maroni or Marowijne) which forms the border with French Guiana. The map shows the area less than 20 years after the Dutch had agreed to forego any claims to New Amsterdam and its surroundings in North America, in exchange for the English relinquishing their claims to Guyana or Suriname.

[4] ff., 977, [2] pp.. 1687 First complete edition of Grotius's correspondence, comprising 2,510 letters written by the Dutch philosopher between April 1599 and July 1645 to an international milieu of famous correspondents, including the Swedish statesman Axel Oxenstierna, the Dutch theologian Gerardus Joannes Vossius, and the German politician Ludwig Camerarius — not to mention Queen Cristina. According to the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (online), "Hugo Grotius (1583–1645) [Hugo, Huigh or Hugeianus de Groot] was a towering figure in philosophy, political theory, law and associated fields during the seventeenth century and for hundreds of years afterwards. His work ranged over a wide array of topics, though he is best known to philosophers today for his contributions to the natural law theories of normativity which emerged in the later medieval and early modern periods." The text is printed in Latin, double-column, with a handful of large woodcut initials, a few tail ornaments, and one letterpress diagram. The title-page, printed in red and black, features Blaeu's large device of an astrolabe flanked by Time and Hercules. An index on the final two pages lists Grotius's correspondents and the corresponding letters, which are arranged chronologically in the text. Contemporary northern-European style vellum over boards ruled in blind, panels with blind-stamped central cartouches, spine with seven raised bands and remnants of later paper labels, red speckled edges; vellum soiled and lightly rubbed at extremities with corners bumped. Ex-library with bookplate on front pastedown and later library marking in pen on second leaf; light foxing, a light waterstain across the lower outer corner of perhaps a dozen leaves, and scattered darker stains, with a few leaves browned; small tear in outer margin of title-leaf and another margin, small hole from natural flaw in outer margin of one leaf and small bit of paper torn away from lower corner of another. Very mild worming in middle of two leaves and final leaf, the latter repaired; additional very minor, "slim" worming mostly to margins at rear. => A solid, handsome important book.

      Amsterdam: Johannes van Keulen, 1687. Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline. Van Keulen's 17th century chart of the Maritime Canada, here with period hand-colouring. This map accurately depicts the Grand Banks, though is somewhat more fanciful regarding the coasts of Newfoundland, Labrador and Nova Scotia, indicative of the Dutch charts of the Gulf of St. Lawrence in this early period. This chart appeared in editions of both Van Keulen's Zee-Fakkel and Zee-Atlas . The present copy is an example of Burden's second state (of 4), with the page number in the lower left corner but without a shoal added to the coastline of Nova Scotia.

        Ordonnance de Louis XIV, Roy de France et de Navarre, Donnee

      1687. Scarce Pocket-Sized Edition of a Landmark in Maritime Law, Life Insurance and the Discourse of Slavery [France]. [Maritime Law]. [Colbert, Jean-Baptiste (1619-1683)]. Louis XIV, King [1643-1715]. Ordonnance de Louis XIV. Roy de France et de Navarre, Donnee a Fontainebleau au Mois d'Aoust 1681. Touchant la Marine. Paris: Chez Denys Thierry, Et Christophle Ballard, 1687. [viii], 374, [2] pp. 16mo. (4" x 2"). Contemporary calf, gilt spine with raised bands, brass clasps, gilt fillets to boards edges. Considerable wear to spine ends and corners, joints starting at ends, a few ink spots to edges of text block, portion of early owner bookplate to front pastedown, later owner bookplate to front free endpaper. Light toning to text, negligible foxing to a few leaves, clean tear to leaf G (pp. 97-98), early repair to fore and bottom-edges of leaf R4 (pp 263-264). Early owner signatures to front free endpaper and title page, interior otherwise clean. * Fourth edition, published the same year as a quarto. With a glossary of terms. Written by Colbert for Louis XIV, the Ordonnance of 1681 is significant as the first modern maritime code and a landmark in the history of insurance. As a clear exposition of maritime insurance it soon became a standard reference. More important, Articles 9, 10 and 11 appear to be the first published statement on life insurance. It describes circumstances in which lives may be insured to deal with situations unique to passengers, crews and slaves, most notably capture for ransom. This distinction was exploited initially by dealers in the slave trade, but it had a wider meaning as well. As Tim Armstrong has shown, it marked the beginning of a discourse that considered slaves as people rather than goods. This is a scarce imprint, OCLC locates 10 copies worldwide, 3 in North America, 2 in law libraries (Harvard, University of Washington). Armstrong, The Logic of Slavery 15-16.

At the urging of Cardinal Richelieu, Desmarets began writing for the theater, producing a comedy long regarded as a masterpiece, Les Visionnaires (1637); a prose-tragedy, Erigone (1638); and Scipion (1639), a tragedy in verse. In his later years Desmarets devoted himself chiefly to producing a number of religious poems, of which the best known is perhaps his verse translation of the Office de la Vierge (1645). .
