        POEMS CHIEFLY CONSISTING OF SATYRS AND SATYRICAL EPISTLES

      London: R. Bentley, 1689. First Edition. Hardcover. Good Plus. 16mo, (6.75" x 4.5") Half-calf over non-pareil marbled boards.Outer spine lacking but binding tight. Lacks pp. 27-30, which, according to the table of contents should be "Sylvia Perjured", but no pages appear cut out, perhaps rather neglected to originally be bound-in. The later -- probably 19th century rebinding resulted in some over-trimming of the top-of-page titles. Interior very, clean, but for some centuries-old inked signatures, including a signed name (Edey E?gar Smith??), followed by her flyleaf-rhyme warning, dated 1793, nearly a century after the book's publication: "Don't steal this book for fear of shame for year you see the oner name" -- most likely a schoolchild's rendition of a then-popular flyleaf rhyme found on a bible in Concord, Mass: "Steal Not this book / for Fear of Shame / for Here You See / the Owner['s] Name (Folklore and Book Culture, by Kevin J. Haynes). 310 pages. Title page pasted onto blank page. Boards show edgewear but very good. . No Publisher stated [R.Bentley]. Stated "Printed and to be sold by most booksellers in London and Westminster." (Watson NCBEL 475). Robert Gould [ca. 1660-1709] was born in poverty, worked as a footman to the wealthy, and later, after achieving some success writing, worked as a schoolteacher. His early poetry was at least somewhat influenced by Juvenal, but when Gould published "Love Given Over...", his baldly misogynistic diatribe, he far surpassed the relatively tame Satirist whose style he at least drew upon. Gould used his writing to win his independence in the most literal way. He is remarkable in that he is one of the few poets of his generation not born into the upper class. His poetry and satires reflected the licentiousness of the Restoration period. "...Nor is it a wonder, when we consider that Women (as if they . had the Ingredient of Fallen-Angel in their Composition) the more they are lash't, are but the more hardned in Impenitence...Judge, then, if Satyr ever had more need of a sharper sting than now, when he can look out his Cell on no side, but sees so many Objects beyond the reach of Indignation. Nor is it altogether unreasonable for me (while others are lashing the Rebellious times into obedience) tohave one sting at Woman, the original of Mischief..." (Advertisement, from LOVE GIVEN OVER: OR, A SATYR AGAINST THE PRIDE, LUST AND INCONSTANCY, &C., OF WOMAN (1680).

        Escalier des sages ou la philosophie des anciens

      Singular work in the history of alchemy and surely the most exotic in the rendering of its plates with the acrostics for the alchemical terms and elements.Second issue of the first edition of this extremely rare work on alchemy in French by Coenders Van Helpen. "The fact that the title leaf bears a different watermark from the rest of the book suggests that it is a cancelled leaf, the whole being a reissue of unsold sheets of the 1686 edition together with two leaves of errata. In other words this is not a new edition but the second issue of the first edition" (Mellon Coll. 142). Extremley rare work. ABPC gives a single copy sold in may 2011 for 6300 EUR, with the engravings somewhat browned. The engravings in our copy are in perfect condition, extremely bright and strong impression. The CCFR BNF locates a single copy in France at Sorbonne. There were two editions of this work, the first one with two issues (1686 and 1689), the other published in 1693, with another title "Tresor de la philosophie des anciens". All three editions are rare, but the first two almost impossible to find. The books is highly sought after especially because of it's fantastic plates with acrostics, some of the most beautiful in the history of the hermetic iconology. As the author explains, the work is divided in 4 books which reveal the 10 degrees of ancient wisdom and is written as a conversation between Francois and Vrederic, the first sustaining his argument on theory, the second on practice and experiences.Physical description: folio (33 x 22 cm), binding half vellum with marbled paper covers. Some stains on the last pages of the Indice des chapitres, (see photo), but overall very good, with plates in perfect condition and strong impression (see photos). The paper used in the production of this work is of great quality, containing three kinds of watermarks, with two kind of coat of arms.Collation: frontispiece missing, replaced here in a good facsimile on old paper (see photo), title page, 4 pages "Fautes de l'imprimeur", preface (4 pages), 240 pages and 12 engraved plates with allegorical illustrations and 5 engraved plates with geometrical figures. The last page of the Indice is also replaced in good facsimile on old paper, hardly to notice.Bibliography: Duveen 287. Cf. Caillet 2417. Verginelli Rota 74 (edition from 1693): "L'opera è originale e interessante. Molto rara e perciò poco nota anche agli specialisti a ai repertori". Missing in Zadrobilek - Opus Magnum.

He was a contemporary of the older Virgil and Horace, with whom he is often ranked as one of the three canonical poets of Latin literature. The Imperial scholar Quintilian considered him the last of the Latin love elegists. He enjoyed enormous popularity, but, in one of the mysteries of literary history, was sent by Augustus into exile in a remote province on the Black Sea, where he remained until his death. Ovid himself attributes his exile to carmen et error, "a poem and a mistake", but his discretion in discussing the causes has resulted in much speculation among scholars. The first major Roman poet to begin his career during the reign of Augustus, Ovid is today best known for the Metamorphoses, a 15-book continuous mythological narrative written in the meter of epic, and for works in elegiac couplets such as Ars Amatoria ("The Art of Love") and Fasti. His poetry was much imitated during Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages, and greatly influenced Western art and literature. The Metamorphoses remains one of the most important sources of classical mythology. (From Wikipedia). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

"- FIRTS ISSUE - This example of the map is taken from the very rare Coronelli's ""Citta, Fortezze e, Isole, e Porti principlai dell'Europa in Pianta et in Elevatione, Descritte, e Publicate Ad uso dell'Accademia Cosmografica degli Argonauti dal Padre Maestro Coronelli Lettore, e Cosmografo della Serenissima Republica di Venezia"" printed in Venice by Domenico Padovani in 1689. This rare production by Venetian cartographer Vincenzo Coronelli is the earliest and most important obtainable map of the Great Lakes and the headwaters of the Mississippi. Coronelli's map centers on Lake Superior, but covers all five Great Lakes and extends westward as far as the Upper Mississippi River Valley. Cartographically this map is essentially an elaboration upon the 1688 Nolin/Coronelli map, 'Partie Occidentale du Canada ou de la Nouvelle France.' Coronelli was particularly fascinated with the Great Lakes region and this map includes numerous updates and elaborations. Coronelli derived his cartographic information from the reports of Jesuit Missionaries, most of which were collected by Jean Baptiste-Louis Franquelin, who effectively acted as a cartographic clearing house of information flowing out of French America. The several explorers who influenced this map are La Salle, Hennepin, Marquette, Jolliet, Dablon, and Allouez, among others. The traces of their passage can be found throughout. Lake Ontario is named Frontenac, after the Governor of New France. On the north shore of Lake Erie the three peninsulas are clearly visible in their third time in print (two previous though more general Coronelli publications). Fort Miami, founded by La Salle, appears at the southern tip of Lake Michigan. Various portages used by explorers and fur traders are noted throughout. Coronelli identifies the R. De Chekagou roughly where Chicago is today, as well as a portage to the F. de Chekogou just to the southwest. This is also the most accurate early mapping of Lake Superior, in which both Keweenaw Peninsula (P. Kioanan) and Isle Royale (I. Miniong) are located. Coronelli has decorated the map throughout with numerous wonderful vignettes depicting the day-to-lives lives of American Indians. One in particular, a crocodile eating a man, is interesting and incongruous. This map was prepared for inclusion in the second edition of Coronelli's important 1695 Atlante Veneto. In many ways this 1694 map is superior to the second most significant map of the Great Lakes, the Charlevoix/Bellin map, which appeared nearly 100 years later. It is a keystone map for any Great Lakes collection. Literature: Burden, Phillip D., The Mapping of North America: A List of Printed Maps, 1511-1670, #701.

        [Male pantin].[Paris, ca. 1750]. Handcoloured engraving of a man (33.5 x 26 cm), with the separate parts designed to be cut out and assembled to form a puppet.

      Gumuchian 6028; Metken, ill. 241; cf. Adams & Keene, Paper dolls, pp. 14-20; Hillier, Dolls and doll-makers, p. 45. Rare hand-coloured print for making a jumping jack in the form of a rococo man dressed in a waistcoat, breeches and carrying a plumed hat, possibly intended to represent the French King Louis XV. Rudimentary marionettes such as these with articulated limbs were in great vogue in Paris in the 1740s and 1750s and called pantins after the nearby village where they were supposedly invented. The diarist Edmond Barbier (1689-1771) wrote in his journal in 1747: "At first the Pantins were designed for children's toys; but after a time they were used to amuse the entire public. They were little figures made of pasteboard. All parts of the body were separate and were attached by strings at the back of the figure. When these strings were pulled, the arms, legs, and head were all jointed together and the Pantin could be made to dance… These silly things engrossed the attention of all of Paris, amusing everyone to such an extent that you could not go into any house in January 1747, without finding a Pantin hanging by the mantelpiece" (Hillier). D'Alembert wrote in the Encyclopédie , 24 (1778), s.v. "Pantins", that "posterity will find it difficult to believe that in France persons of a ripe age could have, in an access of vertigo that lasted far too long, amused themselves with these ridiculous toys and employed themselves in searching for them with such enthusiasm, while in other countries Pantins were relegated to children of the most tender age" (Adams). Slightly worn and soiled at the edges and with a few spots; in very good condition.

        Peloponnesus

      Artist: Cantelli da Vignola Giacomo (d) ; issued in: Modena; date: (d)1689 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 43 x 55; - description: Map of the Peloponnese; - vita of the artist: Giacomo Cantelli da Vignola (1643 - 1695) was an important Italian cartographer and engraver Cantelli was born in Montorsello, near Vignola Italy to a prominent local family. After studying literature at the University of Bologna, Cantelli took a position as secretary to the Marquis Obizzi de Ferrara. Eventually Cantelli relocated to Venice where developed an interest in cartography. He later traveled to Paris in the company of the French ambassador where became acquainted with the French cartographer Guillaume Sanson, as well as his contemporaries Jacques-Andre Duval and Michel-Antoin Baudrand. It was most likely the influence of these innovative French cartographers that inspired Cantelli's careful and meticulous approach, in which he based his cartography not just on earlier maps, but also very much in the French style upon accounts written by travelers and merchants regarding actual travel to foreign lands. Back in Italy, Cantelli took service Count Rinieri Marescotti, with whom he traveled extensively throughout Italy, becoming in the process acquainted with the Italian publisher Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi. It is with Rossi that Cantelli began officially publishing his maps. The earliest maps to bear the Cantelli-Rossi imprint date to 1672 and detail the Holy Land, Persia, and the Ottoman Empire. Around 1680 the duo also began to publish the Mercurio Geografico, a large format atlas illustrating all parts of the world in a splendid Italian baroque detail defined by elaborate finely engraved cartouche work, high quality paper, and bold Roman lettering, and dark rich inks. Some have compared his style go that of Giovanni Antonio Magini, another Italian cartographer of the previous generation. Cantelli da Vignola in fact pioneered the Italian style of fine bold engraving that would eventually be embraced and expanded upon by Vincenzo Coronelli. His work drew the attention of Pope Innocent XI and Reggio Francesco II d'Este, the Duke of Modena, both of whom offered him a position as court geographer. Cantelli chose to work with the Due of Modena, in the service of whom he produced numerous maps and well as two large globes.

        Male pantin].[Paris, ca. 1750]. Handcoloured engraving of a man (33.5 x 26 cm), with the separate parts designed to be cut out and assembled to form a puppet.

      - Gumuchian 6028; Metken, ill. 241; cf. Adams & Keene, Paper dolls, pp. 14-20; Hillier, Dolls and doll-makers, p. 45. Rare hand-coloured print for making a jumping jack in the form of a rococo man dressed in a waistcoat, breeches and carrying a plumed hat, possibly intended to represent the French King Louis XV. Rudimentary marionettes such as these with articulated limbs were in great vogue in Paris in the 1740s and 1750s and called pantins after the nearby village where they were supposedly invented. The diarist Edmond Barbier (1689-1771) wrote in his journal in 1747: "At first the Pantins were designed for children's toys; but after a time they were used to amuse the entire public. They were little figures made of pasteboard. All parts of the body were separate and were attached by strings at the back of the figure. When these strings were pulled, the arms, legs, and head were all jointed together and the Pantin could be made to dance These silly things engrossed the attention of all of Paris, amusing everyone to such an extent that you could not go into any house in January 1747, without finding a Pantin hanging by the mantelpiece" (Hillier). D'Alembert wrote in the Encyclopédie, 24 (1778), s.v. "Pantins", that "posterity will find it difficult to believe that in France persons of a ripe age could have, in an access of vertigo that lasted far too long, amused themselves with these ridiculous toys and employed themselves in searching for them with such enthusiasm, while in other countries Pantins were relegated to children of the most tender age" (Adams). Slightly worn and soiled at the edges and with a few spots; in very good condition.

        Il regno della Servia detta altrimenti rascia

      Artist: Cantelli da Vignola Giacomo (d) ; issued in: Modena; date: (d)1689 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 41 x 55; - description: Map shows Serbia; - vita of the artist: Giacomo Cantelli da Vignola (1643 - 1695) was an important Italian cartographer and engraver Cantelli was born in Montorsello, near Vignola Italy to a prominent local family. After studying literature at the University of Bologna, Cantelli took a position as secretary to the Marquis Obizzi de Ferrara. Eventually Cantelli relocated to Venice where developed an interest in cartography. He later traveled to Paris in the company of the French ambassador where became acquainted with the French cartographer Guillaume Sanson, as well as his contemporaries Jacques-Andre Duval and Michel-Antoin Baudrand. It was most likely the influence of these innovative French cartographers that inspired Cantelli's careful and meticulous approach, in which he based his cartography not just on earlier maps, but also very much in the French style upon accounts written by travelers and merchants regarding actual travel to foreign lands. Back in Italy, Cantelli took service Count Rinieri Marescotti, with whom he traveled extensively throughout Italy, becoming in the process acquainted with the Italian publisher Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi. It is with Rossi that Cantelli began officially publishing his maps. The earliest maps to bear the Cantelli-Rossi imprint date to 1672 and detail the Holy Land, Persia, and the Ottoman Empire. Around 1680 the duo also began to publish the Mercurio Geografico, a large format atlas illustrating all parts of the world in a splendid Italian baroque detail defined by elaborate finely engraved cartouche work, high quality paper, and bold Roman lettering, and dark rich inks. Some have compared his style go that of Giovanni Antonio Magini, another Italian cartographer of the previous generation. Cantelli da Vignola in fact pioneered the Italian style of fine bold engraving that would eventually be embraced and expanded upon by Vincenzo Coronelli. His work drew the attention of Pope Innocent XI and Reggio Francesco II d'Este, the Duke of Modena, both of whom offered him a position as court geographer. Cantelli chose to work with the Due of Modena, in the service of whom he produced numerous maps and well as two large globes.

Easton Neston Library label to the front pastedown. Robert Gould (1660-1709) was a poet. He started out as a servant and ended up as a schoolmaster. "In 1689 Gould published 'Poems', which contained, along with verse epistles and occasional poetry, the potent 'Satire Against Man'...Gould's satires, which were chiefly influenced by his friend John Oldham (1653-1683), comprise about one half of Gould's output and were his most important work. Their subjects range from love and marriage to religion and politics, and often anticipate the satirical writings of Swift. As well as contributing a valuable illustration of the period, Gould's poetry is vigorous and well written; it continues to languish in undeserved neglect." - ODNB. Condition: Very good. Minor shelfwear. Spine sunned. Ink and pencil inscription to title page. Thumbmarks to title page. Occasional spots or mark throughout.

      London : Printed for R. Baldwin, 1689. First edition. - 1689 1ed Design of Enslaving England Parliament v King Charles II LAW Ottoman “The Constitution had been equally imperfect and destructive of it self, had it been left to the Will and Choice of the Prince whether he would ever summon a Parliament, or put into his Power to dismiss them Arbitrarily at his pleasure.” – Design of Enslaving England, p.1 Originally published in 1681 at the height of the Exclusion Crisis, this book, “The Design of Enslaving England”, This book deals mainly with the reign of Charles II of England and the Exclusion Crisis, where a bill sought to exclude Charles II’s brother James from the throne of England because of his Catholic faith. The author draws similarities to the Medieval Ottoman emperors and the wickedness they portrayed to their successors and subjects. It is evident that the author seeks to promote more power being given to the English Parliament rather than the king himself. A rare pamphlet complete as originally printed. Catalogers disagree on the authorship of this work. Wing attributes this work to Robert Ferguson, however, the ESTC and DNB opt for Sir William Jones to be the author.

        SUSPIROS DE LA FRANCIA ESCLAVA que aspira a ponerse en libertad (Memoria primera, segunda y tercera).

      S.l.n.d. (Barcelona ?, 1689). - in-4. 55pp. Cartonnage moderne. Rarissime édition espagnole des "Soupirs de la France Esclave" ouvrage qui proclamait avec force le principe de la souveraineté du peuple et dont la police de Louis XIV détruisit l'édition française systématiquement. Il a été attribué au protestant Pierre Jurieu et aussi, avec plus de probabilité semble-t-il, à l'historien et théologien Michel Levassor, né vers 1648 mort exilé en Angleterre en 1718. Les "Soupirs" parurent en français sous forme de mémoires, au nombre de quinze, entre le 10 Août 1689 et le 15 Septembre 1690. La collection complète est très rare. Cette édition espagnole se compose seulement des trois premiers mémoires comme en témoigne l'exemplaire conservé à la Biblioteca Nacional, identique au nôtre. Chaque mémoire a un titre particulier : "De la Opression de la Iglesia, de los Parlamentos de la Nobleza y de las Ciudades"; "De la Opression de los Pueblos, de los Impuestos y del mal exemplo de la Hazienda" et "De los tristes efectos de la Potencia Arbitraria y Despotica de la Corte de Francia: que esta Potencia es tan despotica como el Gran Senor de los Turcos". La publication de cet ouvrage en langue espagnole sans nom d'auteur, de traducteur et sans mention de lieu ni nom d'imprimeur, n'était peut-être pas sans rapport avec la politique intérieure de l'Espagne. Le traducteur anonyme termine ainsi sa présentation de l'ouvrage:" Protesto que de quanto he visto deste genero de Papeles (y no ha sido poco) ninguno me ha llenado ni admirado mas que estas incomparables Mémoirias : no dudando yo dezir, que si de alguno se puede esperar utilidad, yà haziendo abrir los ojos para la enmienda à los culpados de lo que reprehende, o yà alentando los oprimidos à esfuerçar quanto pudieren de su parte la restauracion de la libertad; no parace imaginable que otras producciones del ingenio humano puedan conducir y ayudar à tan justificado fin". Rousseurs. Bon exemplaire. Aucun exemplaire au NUC. Palau, 325789.
