      à Paris: Chez Etienne Michallet, 1688. Fine. Chez Etienne Michallet, à Paris 1688, in 12 (9,5x16,5cm), (58) 308pp., relié. - Second edition of mention. This edition follows the first few months, it is similar in all respects except for some corrections. It is at the Rue Saint Jacques, "the Image Saint Paul." "The second edition also Print. in 1688 only offers a few slight changes, and the third, under the same date, is simply a reprint of the second. "(Brunet III, 720). See Tchermerzine VIII. Bound in full calf marbled period. Back with nerves decorated. A small lack in foot. The writing of characters begins in 1670, but it was only after seventeen years working as La Bruyère decided to publish them; yet it is so little sure of success that gives preeminence to his translation of Theophrastus characters in the first editions and it will be the fifth that assert the Characters to Theophrastus, La Bruyere and finally sign the edition of his name. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Mention de seconde édition. Cette édition suit la première de quelques mois, elle est en tout point semblable hormis quelques corrections. Elle est à l'adresse de la rue Saint Jacques, « à l'Image Saint Paul ». « La seconde édition, également impr. en 1688 n'offre que quelques légers changements, et la troisième, sous la même date, n'est qu'une simple réimpression de la seconde. » (Brunet III, 720). Voir Tchermerzine VIII. Reliure en plein veau raciné d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Un petit manque en pied. L'écriture des Caractères commence dès 1670, mais c'est seulement après dix-sept ans de travail que La Bruyère se décide à les publier ; il est pourtant si peu sûr du succès qu'il donne la précellence à sa traduction des Caractères de Théophraste dans les premières éditions et il faudra attendre la cinquième pour que s'affirment les Caractères devant Théophraste, et qu'enfin La Bruyère signe l'édition de son nom.

        Description du pays de Jansénie où il est traitté des singularitez qui s'y

      À Bourg-Fontaine|[Paris]: chez A. Arnauld., 1688. Fine. chez A. Arnauld., À Bourg-Fontaine [Paris] 1688, in 12 (8x13,5cm), 96pp., relié. - New edition. Illustrated with a frontispiece and an allegorical folding map, map (178 x 136 mm) represents the Jansénie and its immediate neighbors, Désespérie to the West, Calvinie the north, and the East Libertinie. The original was published in 1660 copies. 2 1688 BN to France and in French catalogs. It is not a copy of the previous edition and the first edition of 1660. Full Sheepskin contemporary. Back tooled raised. Head cap threadbare. Rubbed together. The description of the country is a satirical allegory Jansénie high metaphorical value, a narrator describes an extraordinary country and the manners of its inhabitants, the country being Jansenism. The process is most effective when the book is modeled on the relationships of the travel time, essentially utopias. The book is undoubtedly one of the strangest criticism which gave rise Jansenism. Firmian Peter (Petrus Firmianus) is the pseudonym of Lisieux father Zechariah, Angel Lambert. Entered the Capuchin order, Zechariah of Lisieux (1582-1660) preached in several major cities and to Louis XIII. It was a mission for 20 years in England. He is the author of several satirical works on the vices of his time. A new description of the country Jansénie, greatly increased by the Jesuits, will be published later. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition. Illustrée d'un frontispice et d'une carte dépliante allégoriques, la carte (178 x 136 mm) représente la Jansénie et ses voisins immédiats, la Désespérie à l'Occident, la Calvinie au Septentrion, et la Libertinie à l'Orient. L'originale est parue en 1660. 2 exemplaire de 1688 à la BN de France et un dans les catalogues français. On ne trouve pas d'exemplaire des éditions précédentes et de l'édition originale de 1660. Reliure en pleine basane d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Coiffe de tête élimée. Ensemble frotté. La description du pays de Jansénie est une allégorie satirique à forte valeur métaphorique, un narrateur y décrit un pays extraordinaire et les moeurs de ses habitants, ce pays étant le jansénisme. Le procédé est d'autant plus efficace que le livre est calqué sur les relations de voyage de l'époque, essentiellement les utopies. L'ouvrage est sans aucun doute une des critique les plus étrange auquel donna lieu le jansénisme. Pierre Firmian (Petrus Firmianus) est le pseudonyme du père Zacharie de Lisieux, Ange Lambert. Entré dans l'ordre des Capucins, Zacharie de Lisieux (1582-1660) prêche dans plusieurs grandes villes et devant Louis XIII. Il a été en mission pendant 20 ans en Angleterre. Il est l'auteur de plusieurs oeuvres satiriques sur les vices de son temps. Une nouvelle description du pays de Jansénie, fortement augmentée par les jésuites, sera éditée par la suite.

The author, a Capuchin monk named Justinian Tours (it will take another pen name) lived a long time in the Middle East, and made many trips in the Turkish provinces. The book proposes to set the table on the decadence of the Turkish Empire and its disorders. If the first chapters of the Mohammedan religion in the discrediting, the entire book addresses topics most diverse manners and customs, but each chapter is a demonstration to reduce the Turks to a godless people as ignorant and immoral . - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale française. L'auteur écrivit cet ouvrage en italien et le fit paraître à Milan en 1680, il en fit lui-même la traduction. Reliure en plein veau brun. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin brun. Coiffe de tête adroitement restaurée et redorée. Page de titre remontée, ainsi que la première page de l'avertissement. Décharges d'adhésif entre la page de garde et la page de titre. Bonne fraîcheur du papier, excepté sur les pages de l'épître. Bel exemplaire. L'auteur, un moine capucin du nom de Justinien de Tours (il prendra un autre nom de plume) résida longtemps au Moyen-Orient, et fit de nombreux voyages au sein des provinces turques. L'ouvrage se propose d'établir le tableau de la décadence de l'empire turc et de ses désordres. Si les premiers chapitres traitent de la religion mahométane en la discréditant, l'ensemble du livre aborde les sujets de mœurs et coutumes les plus variés, mais chaque chapitre est une démonstration visant à réduire les Turcs à un peuple impie et immoral autant qu'ignorant.

        Recueil de Veues des Plus Beaux Lieux de France

      1688. PERELLE, Gabriel, Adam and Nicholas. Recueil de Veues des Plus Beaux Lieux de France. Comprised of seven parts in one volume, each part with individual title. Illustrated with a total 281 etched and/or engraved plates on 253 leaves, comprising 267 views and 14 plans and/or maps (3 being large folding). Oblong folio, 295 x 382 mm, bound in contemporary French mottled calf, with intricate gilt-stamped floral ornaments in spine compartments, red leather title label. [Paris: Chez Nicolas Langlois, ca. 1688]. |~||~||~||~||~| Early impressions of the finest, most complete series of etched views to document French gardens and châteaux. A comparable or more authentic portrayal of seventeenth-century French architecture and garden design does not exist. Of the total 267 etched and/or engraved views, over 150 concentrate specifically on seventeenth-century French landscapes and garden designs. These views represent the gardens in their original splendour, the landscape populated with elegant figures in contemporary costume. Regrettably, several of the private châteaux and most of the accompanying gardens no longer exist. The contents of the volume begins with etched views of Parisian edifices, city portals, fountains, gardens and monumental buildings such as the Louvre, Palais Royal, Palais du Luxembourg, L'Hotel de Ville, etc. Then a number of the surrounding châteaux and their estates are pictured, including Versailles (which we see literally rise before our eyes as the plates were executed over a period of several years while the palace and gardens were under construction), Vincennes, Chantilly, St. Cloud and Fontainebleau, plus sixteen views of Rome and its environs including the gardens of Pamphili and Tivoli. Most importantly, this set is comprised of early Nicolas Langlois (1640-1703) impressions of these grand plates. Gabriel Perelle (1595-1677) studied drawing with Daniel Rabel, official artist of the court of Henry III, and then Perelle entered the atelier of the French painter Simon Vouet. Perelle had two sons, Nicolas Perelle (born 1631) and Adam Perelle (1640-1695). The engraved work by the three Perelles is so similar in style that their work is often signed: "Fait par Perelle" as it frequently is in the present album.. The majority of impressions are sharp and dark. A few tears repaired, a three inch crack to bupper hinge, however still strong and perfectly intact. Overall, an exceptional copy. Fowler 245. Brunet IV, 494. Berlin Katalog 2483. See: Millard I, 136 & 137.

Quelques renforcements de papier au verso de certaines planches dépliantes. Destiné, comme le précise le titre, "à toutes personnes qui font leur séjour à la campagne", ce livre "curieux et récréatif" écrit par un moine de l'abbaye de Grandmont est en quelque sorte un manuel du parfait piégeur très abondamment illustré. Le livre est divisé en cinq parties : la première concerne la confection des filets destinés à capturer les "oiseaux, les bestes et les poissons" ; le second s'attarde sur la prise des "oiseaux non passagers" (perdrix, faisans, poules, grives...) ; le troisième livre s'intéresse à la chasse aux bécasses, canards et autres "oiseaux passagers" ; le quatrième traite de la capture de bêtes (lièvres, lapins, furet, blaireaux, renards, loups...)  par des "filets, colets, lacets, pièges et autres machines" ; la dernière partie de l'ouvrage concerne la pêche des poissons, tant dans les étangs que dans les rivières grâce à des filets, hameçons, appâts et autres machines.

        A rare twice-signed book owned by Sam Houston: Hume's history of England during the reign of Elizabeth I ? an instructive and inspirational story that would serve him well during Texas' struggle for independence

      n.p., n.d.. 8vo.. "David Hume, The History of England from the Invasion of Julius Cæsar to the Revolution in 1688. (New York: Inskeep & Bradford & Boston: William McIlhenney, 1810) Vol. 4, vi, 567 pages, 8vo, bound in contemporary marbled boards with gilt-titled spine. Boldly signed, ""Sam Houston"" on the front free endpaper, and again with his initials ""S.H."" on the front pastedown together with the signature of the previous owner, Tennessee judge John W. Overton (1766-1833), ""John W. Overton"" on the top of the front free endpaper with his bookplate affixed to the front pastedown. Signature page and several endpapers moderately toned and dampstained, expertly restored and rebound with the original leather boards and new spine which retains the original spine label. Housed in a beautiful custom clamshell case in red, white and blue with the seal of the Republic of Texas stamped in gilt and a ribbed, gilt-titled spine.The present volume covers the period 1547-1603, a period dominated by the reign of Elizabeth. Her reign marked the beginning of England's rise to the penultimate world power by the mid-eighteenth century. Houston must have found the story of the English defeat of the Spanish Armada inspirational, especially following Texas' seemingly unlikely victory over the more numerous and powerful Mexican army in the 1830s. The previous owner of the volume, John W. Overton, was a Tennessee plantation owner and judge, as well as an advisor to Andrew Jackson. In 1818, Houston lived in Nashville where he took a position as a local prosecutor. It appears that Overton obtained this volume the same year, and sometime prior to Houston's departure for Texas in 1832, gave it to Houston. Books owned by Houston are extremely rare. We are aware of only one other volume signed and owned by Houston ever to appear in the market in the last 30 years, and that fetched $35,000."

Indeed, his next work, Parliamentum pacificum, argued strongly in its favour, although it appeared anonymously as ‘[b]y a True Protestant and no Dissenter’. It was approved by the earl of Sunderland on 15 February 1688 and the king paid for 20,000 copies of it to be produced. A second English edition appeared; it was translated into French and Dutch and elicited three replies in Dutch alone. Gilbert Burnet replied to it in English, having been strongly criticized within it. Northleigh replied in turn in Natural Allegiance (which ran to more than 100 pages) and also in Dr Burnet's Reflections Answered (July 1688), but again anonymously. The revolution must have come as a severe blow to Northleigh. He published nothing else for fourteen years’ (ODNB). (ESTC R16029, Huntington and Berlin only; COPAC adds C, O, E, G and Leeds)

        James Steuarts answer to a letter writ by Mijn Heer Fagel, prisoner to the states of Holland and West-Frisland concerning the repeal of the penal laws and tests

      [Edinburgh] : London, printed and re-printed in Edinburgh: by John Reid, 1688. First Edinburgh Edition. 8vo. 39 pp. Signatures: A-E4, COMPLETE. Edges untrimmed (somewhat browned). Unobtrusive blindstamp on first and last leaves. Bound in recent quarter calf antique (Trevor Lloyd) THE REPEAL OF THE PENAL LAWS AND TEST ACTS DURING THE GLORIOUS REVOLUTION. Whereas William of Orange supported repealing the Penal Laws, but opposed the repeal of the Test Acts, his predecessor James sought to repeal the Penal Laws AND the Test Acts, thereby allowing Catholics the right to hold public office. This is the rare first Edinburgh edition; ESTC lists only BL and NLS in the United Kingdom, and Huntington and Univ. of Illinois in the United States. James Stewart (1635-1713) was one of the leading Scottish radicals in the revolutionary movement. He was offered a pardon by James II, in return for which he sought to persuade his colleagues to return from exile in Holland. In the present pamphlet Stewart replies to a letter written by Gaspar Fagel (1634-1688) describing William's position on the repeal of the Penal Laws, the repeal of the Test Acts, and of religious toleration ("Letter writ by Mijn Heer Fagel, pensioner of Holland, to Mr. James Stewart, advocate"). "Fagel's letter provoked numerous replies and defences, and clearly established the international framework for the debate on toleration. The radical exiles in Holland, who were divided among themselves on the issue of support for, or opposition to, James' toleration policy, were placed directly in the midst of a propaganda and power struggle between James II and William, and ultimately between England and Holland. In very concrete and practical terms, the exiles' position on the issue of toleration was tied to their willingness to accept a pardon from James and return to Britain, as an endorsement of Stewart's claim that all was well there, or to remain in Holland and continue their fight against James, counting on the support and encouragement of William" (SOURCE: Richard Ashcraft, "Revolutionary Politics and Locke's Two Treatises of Government" p. 486). Ours is apparently the only copy currently on the market; no copies has appeared at auction in at least 30 years. Aldis 2821. Wing S5534.
