        KILLING NO MURDER: BRIEFLY DISCOURSED IN THREE QUESTIONS [PAMPHLET 1689 + EARLY ARTICLE 1870]

      Not Attributed. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1689. Second Edition. Hardcover. (iv), 17+(1) pages; Edward Sexby - Colonel Edward Sexby or Saxby was an English Puritan soldier and Leveller in the army of Oliver Cromwell. Later he turned against Cromwell and plotted his assassination. , Silius Titus - Silius or Silas Titus, of Bushey, was an English politician, captain of Deal Castle, and Gentleman of the Bedchamber to King Charles II. Colonel Titus was an organiser in the attempted escape of King Charles I from Carisbrooke Castle. Width: 6.25" Height: 8.25"Book Details: The sources cited note that Allen was the pseudonym of Silius Titus and Edward Sexby. Colin Firth concluded that Titus wrote the dedication to the Lord Protector, Oliver Cromwell, and Sexby wrote the substance of the pamphlet, although he argues that Titus was responsible for the more learned aspects of the text. See Firth, "Killing No Murder," in The English Historical Review 17: 66 (April 1902) , 308-11. This assertion is questioned by James Holstun, who assigned greater credit to Sexby for the entire work. Furthermore, Holstun pointed out there was a William Allen in Cromwell's army who disclaimed authorship. See Holstun, "Ehud's Dagger: Patronage, Tyrannicide, and Killing No Murder," in Cultural Critique 22 (Autumn 1992) , 99-142. Condition / Notes: This is a reprint of the original edition of 1657 (Wing T1312A and S2826. Kennedy, Smith, and Johnson 3, 218) , with dedications to Cromwell and the officers and soldiers of the Army, and a postscript. In spite of the dedication, the author justified the authoritarian Cromwell's demise. Tipped in on front free endpaper is an article entitled "Killing, No Murder" from The Athenaeum: A Magazine of Literary and Miscellaneous Information, (magazine article published in January 1807 is included and tipped to the first blank, 4pp) , 45-8.

        De Jure Gladii Tractatus et de Toparchis qui Exercent id in Dioecesi.

      1689 - Canon Law and Capital Punishment Matthaeus, Antonius (III) [1635-1710]. De Jure Gladii Tractatus et de Toparchis qui Exercent id in Dioecesi Ultrajectina. Leiden: Sumptu Auctoris Excudit Johannes Kellenaar, 1689. Quarto (8-1/2" x 7"). Contemporary vellum, fragment of title label to spine, edges rouged. Some soiling, spine somewhat darkened, front joint just starting at head, corners bumped, 3-1/2" x 9" piece of vellum excised from front board. Large arms of the Curia of the Holy Roman Empire to title page. Some toning, light browning in places. Faint dampstaining to head of first quarter of text block, internally clean. * Only edition. The son and grandson of distinguished jurists of the same name, Antonius Matthaeus III was a professor of law at the University of Utrecht and later its rector. De Jure Gladii is a treatise on capital crimes in canon law as applied to the diocese of Utrecht. It also addresses corporal punishment and lesser crimes. Capital punishment was complicated topic because it involved conflicts with local feudal law. (On a fundamental level, canon law forbids capital punishment, feudal law applies it to a broad spectrum of crimes.) These tensions were acute in Utrecht. Though part of the Protestant United Provinces (Dutch Republic), Utrecht was historically a Catholic center. The Church continued to be a strong presence in the seventeenth century. About 40% of the population was Catholic. This percentage was higher among elite groups.

I send it FROM ISRAEL EMS, insured Admiral Sir William Beauchamp-Proctor, 3rd Baronet (14 October 1781 - 14 March 1861) was an officer in the British Royal Navy, who served during the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. Beauchamp-Proctor was born at Langley Hall, Loddon, Norfolk, the eldest son of Sir Thomas Beauchamp-Proctor, 2nd Baronet, and Mary, the second daughter of Robert Palmer, of Sonning, Berkshire. His younger brothers were Colonel Richard Beauchamp-Proctor[1] of the Grenadier Guards (d. 11 August 1850)[2] and Captain Robert Beauchamp-Proctor of the Madras Artillery (d. 23 May 1813). His nephew, Edward Halhead Beauchamp-Proctor, also served as a naval officer.[1] Beauchamp-Proctor entered the Royal Navy on 4 September 1794, with the rank of able seaman, aboard the 32-gun frigate Stag under Captain Joseph Sydney Yorke. On 22 August 1795, now a midshipman, he took part in the engagement off Norway between four Royal Navy frigates and two frigates and a cutter from the Navy of the Batavian Republic. Stag captured the 36-gun frigate Alliante with 240 men aboard, after an action of about an hour, in which the enemy lost between 40 and 50 men killed and wounded, and the British only 4 killed, and 13, including Beauchamp-Proctor, wounded.[1] He continued to serve in the Stag on the home station until January 1798, when he joined the 98-gun ship London, under Captain John Child Purvis, off Lisbon. The following July he moved to the frigate Flora, under Captain Robert Gambier Middleton, in the Mediterranean, where he was lent for short periods to the frigates Alcmene under Captain Henry Digby, and Minerve under Captain George Cockburn.[1] Beauchamp-Proctor was commissioned as acting-lieutenant aboard the ship Foudroyant, flagship of Admiral Lord Keith, in August 1800, and on 22 October was transferred to the frigate Diana under Captain Thomas Stephenson. He received confirmation of his commission from the Admiralty on 25 February 1801, and then served in the Egyptian campaign, receiving the Turkish gold medal.[1] He was promoted to commander on 29 April 1802, and in April 1803, was appointed to command of the bomb vessel Zebra. In July and August 1804 he served under Captain Robert Dudley Oliver in the bombardment of Le Havre, before being given command of the brig-sloop Saracen in August 1804.[1] Beauchamp-Proctor spent the next six months in Saracen, cruising in the Channel, before sailing for the East Indies in March 1805 aboard Hindostan. On his arrival in July he was given acting-command of the 36-gun frigate Dédaigneuse, but was not confirmed in his post-rank until 5 September 1806.[1] On 21 November 1808, at sunset, Dédaigneuse was stationed off the Isle de France when she encountered the French 36-gun frigate Sémillante returning from a cruise in the Indian Ocean. Dédaigneuse gave chase and by midnight the two ships were no more than half a mile apart. Dédaigneuse fired two or three shots from her bow-chasers, and then a full broadside, as Sémillante tacked. Dédaigneuse followed suit, but because of the lightness of the wind, the ship would not come round. A boat was lowered down to tow her round, and she was finally able to pursue the Frenchman, now some distance ahead. Unfortunately, Dédaigneuse had lost a great deal of copper, being very foul, and at best a bad working ship, so gradually dropped further astern. Beauchamp-Proctor eventually abandoned the chase at about 5 p.m, and soon afterwards Sémillante anchored in Port Louis. Dédaigneuse continued to patrol the waters off the Isle de France until her water and provisions were almost expended, before sailing to Madagascar to reprovision, and then sailed to Bombay. When the commander-in-chief expressed himself dissatisfied with his conduct, Captain Beauchamp-Proctor requested a court-martial, which was held aboard Culloden in Bombay harbour on 27 March 1809. Every officer of his ship gave strong evidence in the captain's favour, and the court acquitted him of all blame, laying responsibility squarely on the poor sailing qualities of Dédaigneuse.[3] Beauchamp-Proctor returned to Britain on sick-leave in November 1809, and despite never serving at sea again, received regular promotions;[1] to rear-admiral in November 1846,[4] to vice-admiral in September 1850,[5] and in June 1857 to admiral, on the retired list.[6] On 20 May 1812 he married Anne Gregory (1792-1859), the daughter of Thomas Gregory and Julia Elizabeth Brograve, and the niece and heir of Thomas Brograve, of Springfield Place, Essex, and granddaughter of Sir Berney Brograve, 1st Baronet. They had three sons and four daughters.[1] Beauchamp-Proctor was appointed Deputy Lieutenant for Norfolk in August 1820,[7] and succeeded his father as third Baronet on 29 June 1827.[1] He was nominated as High Sheriff for Norfolk in November 1831.[8] Beauchamp-Proctor died on 14 March 1861, and he, alongside many other members of his family, was buried at the church of St Michael and All Saints, close to his family home

        Second Voyage du Pere Tachard et des Jesuites envoyez par le Roy au Royaume de Siam

      Gilles Hortemels, 1689 2nd French ed. Re-bound in modern full calf with bands on spine and red label with gilt titling. NB, book looks as if it has been trimmed on the top margin but the size corresponds to the original. All edges gilt. A second embassy to Siam was sent in March 1687, in which Tachard again took part. The embassy consisted of five warships, led by General Desfarges, and was intent on bringing the Siamese embassy home.However, apart from the reaffirmation of the 1685 commercial treaty, the mission achieved little else. The disambarkment of French troops in Bangkok led to strong nationalistic movements in Siam which ultimately resulted in the 1688 Siamese revolution in which king Narai died, the ringleader was executed, and Phra Petratcha became king. In the later part of 1689, Desfarges captured the island of Phuket in an attempt to restore French control. Part of the book touches on the Cape of Good Hope, where the governor, Simon van der Stel and the visiting commissioner of the VOIC, H A van Rheede tot Drakenstein, entertained the French party and gave them a tour of the settlement, as well as helping them with their scientific and astronomical observations. For this the governor was reprimanded later, as France was at war with the Dutch.French text (iv) 402 [8] pp with vignettes and six folding plates

        A document signed by a member Standish family of Duxbury, Lancashire -likely relations to Plymouth Colony leader Myles Standish who founded Duxbury, Massachusetts.

      n.p., December 11, 1689. 7.75" x 12.25". " Manuscript Document Signed, ""Ri: Standish"" one page, 7.75"" x 12.25"", [no place], December 11, [16]89. Partial fold separations, light soiling else fine condition. Sir Richard Standish, 1st Baronet (1653 - 1693) English politician who sat for Wigan from 1690 - 1693. It is likely that Richard was a relative of Myles Standish, one of the founders of Plymouth Colony in 1620. The document details an account ""agreed upon Between Sir Richard Standish Bartt. and Peter Birch Doctor in Divinity"" and both sign the document agreeing to the veracity of the account which totaled £1300. Items include monies paid ""abt. ye Baronetship"" as well as several payments to a ""Mr Olgethorp"" Whether this is Theophilus Oglethorpe (1650 - 1702), father of Georgia founder James Oglethrope is unknown. Both Standish and Birch sign beside their wax seals. A fascinating document worthy of further research. Much is known and has been written concerning the life of Myles Standish (c. 1584 - 1656) after he became associated with the English Separatists (i.e. Pilgrims) who founded the colony of Plymouth in 1620. However, very little is known about Standish's early life including his place of birth, and for nearly two centuries, this question has been been the subject of scholarly debate. The little we know about Standish's origins come from his will, drafted in 1656, in which he granted to his ""son & heire apparent Alexander Standish all my lands as heire apparent by lawfull decent in Ormskirke Borscouge Wrightington Maudsley Newburrow Crowston and in the Isle of man and given to mee as Right heire by lawfull decent but Surruptuously detained from mee My great Grandfather being a 2cond or younger brother from the house of Standish of Standish"" ( Charles H. Simmons, Jr., Plymouth Colony Records, Volume 1, Wills and Inventories 1633-1669, Camden, ME: Picton Press, 1996, 312-314).Of all the places named, one is on the Isle of Man while the remaining are places in Lancashire where a branch of the Standish family resided, centered at Duxbury Hall. A short passage written by Plymouth Colony's secretary, Nathaniel Morton notes a similar origin for Standish, noting he ""...was a gentleman, born in Lancashire, and was heir apparent unto a great estate of lands and livings, surreptitiously detained from him; his great grandfather being a second or younger brother from the house of Standish…""(Nathaniel Morton, New England's Memorial, Boston: Congregational Board of Publication, 1855, 6th ed., 170). Unfortunately, that is all that is known about his origins. However, the fact that Standish founded the town of Duxbury in Plymouth Colony would suggest that his origins were indeed from Lancashire and not the Isle of Man. It is not known whether Alexander Standish (1626 - 1702) ever pursued these claims."

      P., Chez Etienne Ducastin 1689, - in-8, (30)-319-37 pp., reliure plein veau de l'époque, dos à nerfs richement orné. Histoire de la conqête Mandchoue et de l'avènement de la dynastie Qing, à travers les portraits des empereurs Shunzhi et de Kangxi. Pour ce qui est du premier, le P. d'Orléans précise que son ouvrage est basé sur les écrits de Martini (sur place au moment de la conquête) et de Rougemont, mais surtout sur les témoignages du Père Adam Schall "qui a vécu à la cour de ce Prince". Il précise avec malice qu'il n'a rien tiré de Palafox, "un homme qui écrivoit l'Histoire de la Chine au Mexique sur des nouvelles qui luy venoient des Philippines". En ce qui concerne le second, d'Orléans précise qu'il s'appuit sutout sur les travaux du P. Ferdinand Verbiest, qui avait auprès de Kangxi la même proximité que celle de Schall auprès de Shunzhi, et sur ceux du P. François Greslon pour ce qui est de la ligue des mandarins chinois contre la domination tartare. On trouve en fin d'ouvrage l'Histoire de Sevagi et de son successeur, nouveaux conquérans des Indes (37 pp.). Signature d'un précédent propriétaire en tête de la page de titre, ex-dono à la plume au verso, légers frottis aux coiffes. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        L'Hipermestra. Etching by M. Belloni after Silvio degli Alli depicting the "Camera" in Act I, scene 2 of the opera

      Firenze: Vincenzo Vangelisti, 1689. Illusione e Pratica Teatrale 31. "[Cavalli] was the most performed, and perhaps the most representative, composer of opera in the quarter-century after Monteverdi and was a leading figure, as both composer and performer, in Venetian musical life." Thomas Walker and Irene Alm in Grove Music Online. L'Hipermestra, with text by Giovanni Andrea Moniglia (ca. 1630-1700) and sets by Ferdinando Tacca (1619-1689), was first performed in Florence in 1658. The libretto, with plates by Alli in large format, was published in that same year. The present plate is from the reissue of 1689, re-engraved and published in slightly smaller format. Sonneck p. 595. Moniglia (1624-1700) "must be reckoned among the most original librettists of the 17th century... His Hipermestra (1658, music by Cavalli) and Ercole in Tebe (1661, music by Melani) set a standard for the festa teatrale." Robert Lamar Weaver in Grove Music Online. Tacca (1619-1686) was an Italian architect and stage designer. "As well as designing buildings, such as the Teatro dell'Accademia degli Immobili (later della Pergola), built in Florence in 1656, he devised scenery, machines and apparatus for various performances and dynastic ceremonies, which are partly documented in engravings... The scenery and mechanisms for Cavalli's opera Hipermestra (libretto by G. A. Moniglia), performed at the Teatro degli Immobili in 1658 to mark the birth of the Spanish Infanta, are known from 13 engravings by Silvio degli Alli included in the published libretto." Mercedes Viale Ferrero in Grove Music Online.. 204 x 249 mm. On laid paper. Slightly worn, browned, and foxed, primarily at margins; remnants of hinges to upper corners of verso.

From a distinguished collection, in extremely attractive condition, and in a fine contemporaneous binding, this is the first appearance of the botanical writings of one of the most precocious poets in the annals of English literature. Cowley (1616-67) was producing poetic works of inexplicable sophistication before he had settled into puberty; he published his first volume of verse at 15 and went on to become one of the most popular poets of his day. A staunch royalist who served in the exiled court of Charles I's queen, Henrietta Maria, he helped encode and decipher messages sent between the monarchy's supporters, including the royal couple themselves. Despite having been arrested and imprisoned as a royalist agent at one point, Cowley escaped the Cromwell years largely unscathed and retired to the countryside in 1663. Upon his death, Cowley was not only given the extraordinary honor of burial in Westminster Abbey (noted by the DNB as "the most lavish funeral which had ever been given to a mere man of letters in England"), but was also afforded a privileged spot next to the graves of Spenser and Chaucer. Cowley's influence on contemporary poetry was demonstrably deep; his funerary monument, pictured in our frontispiece, refers to him as "the English Virgil," and Perkin asserts that his "fame as a poet exceeded even that of Milton" during the waning years of the Restoration. 297 x 192 mm. (11 5/8 x 7 1/2"). [20], 166 (148-9 misnumbered 140-1), [2] pp. FIRST EDITION. VERY PLEASING CONTEMPORARY RED MOROCCO, ELABORATELY PANELLED IN GILT, covers with mitered frames composed of gilt rules, decorative rolls, pointillé tooling and floral sprays, raised bands, spine intricately gilt in compartments with central star-like design and scrolling cornerpieces, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt, possible (very expert) repair to top spine compartment. Frontispiece engraving of Cowley's tomb. Front pastedown with the bookplate of Robert S. Pirie. Wing C-6665; ESTC R21164. Spine and head of rear board sunned, a bit of wear to joints and extremities, boards tending to splay slightly, faint flecking to leather, text with isolated spots and browning, but an excellent copy, the binding solid and only minimally worn, and internally very fresh and clean.

        L'OFFITIO DELLA SANTA VERGINE IN ITALIANO

      Pariggi [Paris]: Stefano Loyson, 1689. This charming little Office of the Virgin in Italian was the pious accessory for a succession of royal ladies, beginning with the mother of Louis XV and descending through the daughter and granddaughter of Louis XVI to writer and collector Morel de Campannelle and to Sophie Morel d'Arleux. The binding is quite feminine, and must have been jewel-like when the colors were new and bright. It shows very little wear, and was clearly treasured as an object of beauty rather than used as a tool of devotion.. 108 x 68 mm. (4 1/4 x 2 3/4"). 9 p.l., 26, 276 pp., [2] leaves. Translated by M. Angelo Pronetti. Very pretty contemporary white kidskin, lavishly gilt and painted, covers with elaborate frame and centerpiece stamped in gold and highlighted with green, red, blue, and brown paint, raised bands, spine compartments gilt with small floral tools at center and corners, gilt titling, turn-ins with gilt floral roll, light blue watered silk endleaves, all edges gilt. Front flyleaf with a list of past owners, beginning with Marie-Adelaide de Savoie, mother of Louis XV, penned in an elegant 19th century hand; note on provenance in the hand of former owner Morel de Campennelle laid in at front. A little wear to joints and extremities, spine a bit abraded, paint rubbed or faded in spots (especially on backstrip), isolated small rust spots or faint foxing, otherwise an excellent specimen, the text quite clean and fresh, and in a sound, generally well-preserved binding with gilt that is still bright.

        L'Hipermestra. Etching by M. Belloni after Silvio degli Alli depicting the "Camera" in Act I, scene 2 of the opera.

      Firenze: Vincenzo Vangelisti, 1689. 204 x 249 mm. On laid paper. Slightly worn, browned, and foxed, primarily at margins; remnants of hinges to upper corners of verso. Illusione e Pratica Teatrale 31. "[Cavalli] was the most performed, and perhaps the most representative, composer of opera in the quarter-century after Monteverdi and was a leading figure, as both composer and performer, in Venetian musical life." Thomas Walker and Irene Alm in Grove Music Online. L'Hipermestra, with text by Giovanni Andrea Moniglia (ca. 1630-1700) and sets by Ferdinando Tacca (1619-1689), was first performed in Florence in 1658. The libretto, with plates by Alli in large format, was published in that same year. The present plate is from the reissue of 1689, re-engraved and published in slightly smaller format. Sonneck p. 595. Moniglia (1624-1700) "must be reckoned among the most original librettists of the 17th century... His Hipermestra (1658, music by Cavalli) and Ercole in Tebe (1661, music by Melani) set a standard for the festa teatrale." Robert Lamar Weaver in Grove Music Online. Tacca (1619-1686) was an Italian architect and stage designer. "As well as designing buildings, such as the Teatro dell'Accademia degli Immobili (later della Pergola), built in Florence in 1656, he devised scenery, machines and apparatus for various performances and dynastic ceremonies, which are partly documented in engravings... The scenery and mechanisms for Cavalli's opera Hipermestra (libretto by G. A. Moniglia), performed at the Teatro degli Immobili in 1658 to mark the birth of the Spanish Infanta, are known from 13 engravings by Silvio degli Alli included in the published libretto." Mercedes Viale Ferrero in Grove Music Online.

        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".

        Memoires De Messire Pierre de Bourdeille, Seigneur de Brantome, Contenans Les Vies de Dames Galantes de fon temps.

      Amsterdam: Chez Jean de la Tourterelle. A tear to bottom of spine, some foxing to page edges, otherwise in very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Bookplate to pastedown.. Volume I et II en un volume. Amsterdam, Chez Jean de la Tourterelle, M.DC.LXXXIX [1689]. 8,5 cm x 14 cm. 358 pages, 408 pages. Hardcover / Original vellum. A tear to bottom of spine, some foxing to page edges, otherwise in very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Bookplate to pastedown. Pierre de Bourdeille, seigneur de Brantôme (c.?1540 – 15 July 1614), also known as the abbé de Brantôme, was a French historian, soldier, and biographer. De Bourdeille was born in Périgord, Aquitaine, the third son of the baron de Bourdeille. His mother and maternal grandmother were both attached to the court of Marguerite of Navarre, on whose death in 1549 he went to Paris, and later (1555) to Poitiers, to finish his education. He was given several benefices, the most important of which was the abbey of Brantôme, but had no inclination for an ecclesiastical career. He became a soldier and came into contact with many of the great leaders of the continental wars. He travelled in Italy; in Scotland, where he accompanied Mary, Queen of Scots (then the widow of Francis II of France); in England, where he saw Elizabeth I (1561, 1579); in Morocco (1564); and in Spain and Portugal. De Bourdeille fought on the galleys of the Order of Malta, and accompanied his great friend, the French commander Filippo di Piero Strozzi (grandson of Filippo Strozzi the Younger), in his expedition against Terceira, in which Strozzi was killed (1582). During the French Wars of Religion under Charles IX of France, he fought for the Catholics (including at the Siege of La Rochelle (1572-1573), but he allowed himself to be won over temporarily by the ideas of the Huguenot reformers, and though he publicly separated himself from Protestantism, it had a marked effect on his mind. A fall from his horse compelled him to retire into private life about 1589, and he spent his last years in writing his Memoirs of the illustrious men and women whom he had known. His life was the subject of the historical drama film Dames galantes (1990) that focused on his relations with women. The lead role was played by Richard Bohringer. De Bourdeille can hardly be regarded as a historian proper, and his Memoirs cannot be accepted as a very trustworthy source of information. But he writes in a quaint conversational way, pouring forth his thoughts, observations or facts without order or system, and with the greatest frankness and naiveté. His works certainly gave an admirable picture of the general court-life of the time, with its unblushing and undisguised profligacy. There is not an homme illustre or a dame galante in all his gallery of portraits who hasn't engaged in what Medieval Christian prescriptions as well as the Victorian society would regard as sexual immorality; and yet the whole is narrated with the most complete unconsciousness that there is anything objectionable in their conduct. Besides the general promiscuity of the characters, some parts of the work depict in a more or less detailed fashion the practices of homosexualism (almost exclusively lesbianism), cunnilingus, and, marginally, sado-masochism (although the persons engaging in these activities usually aren't identified by name). It also contains a rather long and explicit description of the female intimate parts in general, focusing on their diversity. (Wikipedia)

        De Par le Roy en l'assemblée de la police d'Angers tenue au Parquet de l'Audience de la Prevosté du-dit lieu le Lundy. Jullet 1689

      [Angers], 1689. Broadside, (). First edition. This royal proclamation regulates the prices bakers can charge for different varieties of bread in Angers in proportion to the cost of wheat and rye, perhaps as a result of the economic pressures of the beginning of the Nine Years' War. Includes regulation of meat prices, and a promise that price regulations will be considered the next Thursday for woodcutters and coopers. These regulations were to be posted over the city as well as announced in parish sermons; the fines for breaking these price regulations ran fairly steep - ten lives for each instance of contravention. Signed in type, "Cavé". With the small stamp in the lower right hand corner, of the Bibliotheca Lindesiana, the great library created initially by the Lindsay family at Balcarres in Fife in the late 16th century. It was significantly enhanced by Alexander William Crawford Lindsay (1812-1880), 25th Earl of Crawford & 8th Earl of Balcarres and his son James Ludovic Lindsay, the 26th Earl of Crawford, with the number of books eventually reaching almost 200,000 volumes. While significant portions of the collection were incorporated into the John Rylands Library, pieces were sold off over the years (see "The Bibliotheca Lindesiana" in The Bulletin of the John Rylands Library, 1946). Some creasing and wear to the edges; two corners chipped, otherwise very good. [OCLC locates no copies].

        Romani Pontificis publicae et solennes actiones

      1689. "Acquaforte, 1689, datata e iscritta in basso al centro: Romae Cum privilegio Summi Pontificis Su.riorum permissu 1689""; più in alto ""Gio. Iacomo Rossi le stampa in Roma alla Pace"". Bell'esemplare, ricco di toni, impresso su carta vergata coeva filigranata, a pieni margini, lievi fioriture sui margini bianchi, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'incisione raffigura al centro papa Alessandro VIII sulla sedia gestatoria e portato in processione, intorno, sono disposte 10 vignette, di dimensioni più piccole, che illustrano scene di cerimonie pontificie: L'apertura della Porta Santa, il concistoro con l'udeinza degli oratori dei sovrani; la messa solenne della Canonizzazione; la presentazione della chinea; la cavalcata per il possesso; l'adorazione dei cardinali; la riunione con il pontefice nella Cappella Sistina; la benedizione della loggia di San Pietro; la processione del ""Corpus Domini"" e la solenne incoronazione. Le scene si riferiscono a cerimonie che venivano celebrate nel corso dell'anno giubilare. La lastra, infatti, fu realizzata e pubblicata per la prima volta in occasione del Giubileo straordinario indetto da papa Alessandro VII nel 1655. Con le dovute modifiche, il rame fu poi riutilizzato per tre diversi pontefici: Clemente IX (1667); Clemente X (1670) e infine Alessandro VIII, appunto nel 1689." Etching, 1689, lettered with title, captions to each image, and production detail. Central image of Pope Alexander VIII chaired and carried in procession at shoulder-height, surrounded by ten smaller images of him performing ceremonial and official rituals during the Jubilee. The anonimous engraving was published for the first time by Gian Giacomo de Rossi and later used, with appropriate variations, for pope Clemente IX 1667; Clemente X - 1670 and in 1689 for Alessandro VIII . Printed on contemporary laid paper, uncut copy, occasional foxing on the white margins. S. Tozzi, Incisioni barocche di Feste e avvenimenti, pp. 179-180 402 512

Reliure plein veau époque, dos à nerfs ornés, pièces de titre et de tomaison rouges, dentelle dorée sur les coupes, tranches dorées.(accrocs sur les coiffes, une éraflure sur un plat, tache sur une marge au tome 1). Bon exemplaire. -Tome I qui comprend la science des nombres et l'algèbre ou l'art de comparer toute sorte de grandeurs par le moyen des chiffres et des lettres. -Tome II qui comprend un corps d'analyse ou l'art de résoudre les questions qu'on propose sur toutes les diverses grandeurs. Jean Prestet (1648-1691), oratorien et mathématicien, fut un proche de Malebranche. Son ouvrage fut retentissant et fort estimé des savants. Sa mort prématurée l'empêcha d'accéder à l'Académie des sciences, où devait parvenir Carré qui lui succéda auprès de Malebranche. Prestet composa son ouvrages à l'âge de 22 ou 23 ans, vers 1670. Les retards à la publication provinrent surtout de la nécéssité de trouver les protections suffisantes pour publier, dans un milieu ostile, des travaux "modernes" de stricte observance cartésienne. L'ouvrage fut enfin imprimé en 1675. Voir l'intéressante étude de André Robinet in Revue d'histoire des sciences, 1960. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Institutiones Grammaticæ Anglo-Saxonicæ, et MÅ“so-Gothicæ

      Oxoniæ [Oxford]: E Theatro Sheldoniano, 1689. First edition, large 8vo in 4's, (xxviii), 114, (2, iv), 182, (36, 2 blank) pp. Light dampstaining to the edge of leaves at the beginning and end, brief inscriptions to fly leaf and above the imprimatur. Contemporary panelled calf, edges slightly worn and with a small puncture to the lower board, neatly rebacked retaining the original red morocco spine label. An Anglican non-juror, Hickes later expanded this work in his Thesaurus (1705). Refusing to take an oath of allegiance to William and Mary many of his studies were undertaken as a fugitive. "[It] was undertaken as he wrote later 'purely out of zeale to make known the Language, Customes, Laws, and manners of our ancestres, and so to set our English antiquities in a good light'... Nevertheless Hickes made a political statement by presenting in the same work a Saxon coronation oath... as historical evidence of divinely ordained kingship that invalidated... arguments about the 'original contract' between the king and his people as a basis of good government..." (ODNB). Wing H1851.

        Dialogues sur les affaires du temps, ou les pasquinades

      Elzevir. first editions. Editions elzéviriennes the Sphere. Full contemporary calf, spine tooled raised. Book consists of 5 texts in the first edition together in one volume: The Chamber of Accounts of Innocent XI (5 ° dialogue), The Dream of Pasquin or prom Europe (2 dialogue), The Feast of Guillemot '4 No dialogue), Stone political button, the Diet of Augsburg (9th dialogue). Dialogues appeared anonymously between "1688 and 1691 are pasquinades satirical dialogues between two characters arlequinesques Pasquin and Marsorio. Pasquin is leading the subject, his sidekick asking questions. The whole is treated with due lightness, easily read, the humor and satire are often irresistible. These dialogues were published separately, and each contain a title page, with a publisher often fanciful name and a different city, it goes without saying that there is only one editor really. It was published 19 dialogues, it is naturally very rare to see together. The subjects of each dialogue are different and are, as the title indicates, the main business of the time, and the situation of European countries. Only the first dialogue of the book: the bedroom Innocent XI accounts, do not put in a situation both regular characters, because it is a dialogue between the Pope and Saint-Pierre, the dialogue is nevertheless the fifth pasquinades dialogue. French writer often worn with pamphlets and satire, Eustache le Noble (1643-1711), Baron de Saint-Georges and Tenelière, was imprisoned in the Conciergerie for fraudulent acts, escaped, then was caught again and banished of France for 9 years, he died poor when he was rich. All these dialogues are quite rare and not easily found. A hitch with a bit missing. Good copy. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information!
