        Le jeu des eschets

      Jacques le Febure, Paris 1689 - 343 pages. Duodecimo (5 ½¿ x 3 ¼¿). Bound in leather with raised spine bands and gilt to spine. Originally written in 1619 in Italian. From the library of Lothar Schmid. [Biblioteca van Der Niemeijeriana: 400] Third French edition. Gioachino Greco, also known as Il Calabrese, was born around 1600 in Celico, which near Cosenza in Calabria. Calabria had already produced such players as Leonardo di Bono and Michele di Mauro. From his writing it's apparent the he wasn't educated and likely came from a lower class family. Already in 1619, Greco started keeping a notebook of tactics and particularly clever games and he took up the custom of giving copies of his manuscripts to his wealthy patrons. In Rome Monsignor Corsino della casa Minutoli Tegrini, Cardinal Savelli and Monsignor Francisco Buoncompagni all received copies (of which there are extant copies, dated 1620 in the Corsiniana library in Rome, under the title, Trattato del nobilissimo gioco de scacchi). Despite his popularity in Rome, in 1621 Greco took off to test himself against the rest of Europe leaving this paper trail as he went. In 1621 he left a fine copy of his manuscripts with Duke Enrico of Lorraine in Nancy. He traveled to Paris where he played Arnauld (Isaac) de Corbeville, Enrico di Savoia (the Marquis of St. Sorlin and the Duke of Nemours and Geneva) and others. He had apparently been quite successful because in traveling from Paris to England he was waylaid by robbers who divested him of 5,000 scudi, a princely sum. Finally making it to London, he beat all the best players. Sir Francis Godolphin and Nicholas Mountstephen were given copies of his manuscripts. While in London, Greco developed an idea to record entire games, rather than positions, for study and inclusion in his manuscripts. He returned to Paris in 1624 where he rewrote his manuscript collection to reflect his new ideas. He then went to Spain and played at the court of Philip IV. There he beat his mentor and the strongest player of the time (other than himself), don Mariano Morano. He finally returned to Italy where he was enticed to traveling to the New Indies, the Americas, by a Spanish nobleman. He seemingly contracted some disease there and died around 1630 (possibly 1634) at the young age of 30 (34). He generously left all the money he earned at chess to the Jesuits. Gioachino Greco stood head and shoulders above his contemporaries, a feat seldom duplicated. David Hooper, in The Oxford Companion to Chess, states that Greco probably made up the games in his manuscripts. The question of whether he actually played the games or invented them is rather moot since if he invented them, he was perfectly capable of playing them. Lothar Maximilian Lorenz Schmid (10 May 1928 ¿ 18 May 2013) was a German chess grandmaster. He was born in Radebeul near Dresden into a family who were the co-owners of the Karl May Press, which published the German Karl May adventure novels. He was best known as the chief arbiter at several World Chess Championship matches, in particular the 1972 encounter between Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky at Reykjavic. He was also an avid collector of chess books and paraphernalia. It was reputed that he owned the largest known private chess library in the world, as well as a renowned collection of chess art, chess boards and chess pieces from around the globe. Condition: Leather rubbed and scuffed, Lothar Schmid's label to front paste down. Spine label missing, spine bands rubbed, old neat signature to title, some doodling to back end papers else a good copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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.

        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.

This is the second of two letters written by Sprat at the time of the Revolution, in which he attempts to justify his taking a seat of an ecclesiastical commission established in 1686 by James II. Sprat was not averse to James's declaration for liberty of conscience, but by the time James fled to France Sprat's sympathy for his monarch was awkward. This copy with the early armorial bookplate of the Duke of Beaufort (Henry Somerset): his sympathy for James makes him a logical recipient for Sprat's self-justifications. Wing S5049."
