PETTER Nicholaas
Isaac Severinus, 1690. in-4 (238x190 mm), 7 ff. nn. (titolo in rosso e nero, prefazione, indice e spiegazione delle figure), 71 fogli con incisioni a piena pag. all'acquaforte di Romain de Hooghe, stupende, raffiguranti animate scene di lotta, attacco e difesa. Legatura moderna ad imitazione antica in p. pelle decorata a piccoli ferri vegetali in oro ai piatti, al centro dei medesimi armi nobiliari. L'opera si divide in 13 sezioni, ognuna delle quali è dedicata ad un diverso aspetto delle tecniche di lotta; le tavole da 56 a 64 illustrano la difesa di un uomo disarmato contro uno armato di pugnale. Uno dei primi libri di difesa personale, ''contre les coups de pied et de poing, e même contre les coups de couteau'', ad opera del lottatore professionista Petter, capo della scuola di lotta del Prinsegracht di Amsterdam. Questa scuola ebbe un grande successo e dopo la morte dell'autore (1672) venne portata avanti dal suo allievo Robbert Cors, al quale è dovuta anche la pubblicazione postuma dell'opera. Questo straordinario manuale di lotta libera fu pubblicato per la prima volta in Amsterdam, con testo fiammingo, nel 1672, con le medesime incisioni del De Hooghe, considerate tra i capolavori dell'artista (1645-1708). Completo e ottimamente conservato all'interno, raro.

First edition of Hevelius’s great star atlas, together with his Prodromus and Star Catalogue, as issued, and including the Annus Climactericus, normally found on its own. Hevelius’ star atlas was one of the few such actually produced by a professional working astronomer, as distinct from a map publisher or amateur populariser such as Piccolomini, Bayer, Cellarius, Doppelmayr, etc. It set the standard for celestrial cartography and was the source for the production of celestial globes, such as those by Einmart and Gerehard and Leonhard Valk. The star atlas contains 73 constellations, of which 12 were introduced here for the first time by Hevelius. The star maps were drawn by Andreas Stech and engraved by Charles de La Haye, though North has … [Click Below for Full Description]

CUQ
1576-1690 - ____ Archives du château de Lavernéde relatives à l'histoire de l'église réformée de Cuq-Toulza, (Tarn) de 1576 à 1690. Le village de Cuq-Toulza, (qui veut dire Cuq-en-Toulousain) est dans le Lauragais, à une quarantaine de kilomètres de Toulouse et dix de Puylaurens. Au seizième siècle, il était le centre d'une assez grande activité commerciale, dont celle du pastel qui faisait alors la fortune de la région. Selon Mézeray, le Lauragais était dès l'année 1574 une région presque toute huguenote. Le premier document de cette série, sur l'antiquité et l'importance de Cuq date de 1561. Le suivant, de 1576, confirme "le frère Caraguel en son église de Cuq". "Un des documents les plus précieux de cette collection est, sans contredit, le registre des procès verbaux des séances du Consistoire de l'Eglise de Cuq, pour l'année 1578, rédigé par le secrétaire du Conseil, et dans lequel il a ajouté la mention du payement des gages du ministre, la liste des "reçus en l'Eglise" et les "noms des baptêmes" pour la même année. Il comprend seize feuillets, presque tous couverts d'une écriture fine et fort lisible. Il est intéressant d'un bout à l'autre, par la quantité énorme de renseignements qu'il nous donne indirectement sur la vie de l'Église, ses habitudes, sa discipline et les noms d'une quantité de ses membres, et ceux de ses anciens, et tout d'abord le nom de son pasteur." (H. de France). En 1622 Cuq a été prise par l'armée Royale, mise à sac et brûlée. Le dernier document est une copie des ordres donnés par le comte de Broglie, commandant des armées en Languedoc, à ses of … [Click Below for Full Description]

LETH, Hendrik de.
, . . The Anglo-Dutch Garden 24 (ca. 1690 state of general view only); Springer, p. 45 (without the general view); Hollstein (Dutch & Flemish) XXVIII, B. Stoopendael 24 (ca. 1690 state of general view only); not in Berlin Kat. Very rare print series of the palace, gardens and other buildings of the Dutch royal estate Soestdijk, built mostly by Willem III, Prince of Orange, Dutch head of state and from 1689 also King of England. The estate passed to his son and then his grandson Willem Karel Hendrik Friso (1711-1751), Prince of Orange, who became the Dutch head of state in 1731 as Stadholder Willem IV. The large general view, with the city of Utrecht barely visible on the horizon, is rarely found with the series, but De Leth seems likely to have issued them together. Bastiaen Stoopendael (1637-1693) engraved and published the general view soon after Willem was crowned King William III of England in 1689. Hendrik de Leth (1703-1766) and his father Andries published views of Diemermeer by Stoopendael's son Daniel in 1725 and Hendrik seems likely to have added his name to the general view and published it together with the present numbered series soon after his father's death in 1731, perhaps for the occasion of Willem IV's appointment as Stadholder in that year. Well-printed with ample margins. The 16 views have been cut down, leaving a margin of about 2 mm, and mounted two to a leaf on 18th-century(?) unwatermarked laid paper. Very good copy of a very rare print series of King William III's Dutch royal palace and gardens.

Includes record of Mayors and Sheriffs of Cork from 1690 to 1734 / A charter to incorporate the Guild of Wholesale Merchants / An account of how the Earl of Inchiquin was presented with his freedom / The appointment of Sir James Jeffryes as Governor of Cork / Proposal for Benj Pike to prove his right to the fishery of the river. "Richard Caulfield's The Council Book of the Corporation of Cork from 1609 to 1643 and from 1690 to 1800 are proceedings of the municipal authorities of Cork as they took place. Caulfield's work is an attempt to provide a faithful record of history rather than a romantic version. He identified two methods of writing history. The first is to present the facts as they are and leave it to the reader to form his own impressions. The second is to present what the impressions have made on the writer's mind and present them to the reader. Caulfield intended to marry both methods together by presenting a series of samples and extracts to give a truer picture of the times. He used sources in the Library of the British Museum , the Bodlein library, Oxford , the Treasury of the Corporation of Cork and other sources. Richard Caulfield (1823-1887) was secretary, librarian and custodian of the Royal Cork Institution and librarian for Queen's College Cork. It is said of him that on several occasion he was chosen to referee the various sides in significant histo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Provenance: Mountstuart bookplate of the Earls of Bute to front pastedown. A fine copy of one of the rarest of Boyle's works. ----Fulton 189; Wellcome II, p.224; Wing B3928A; Neville, Historical Chemical Library I, 2006, p. 200. - "One of Boyle's last writings and important as the first work in English on determining specific gravity. The catalogue at the end is rare and was added to only a few copies." (Neville). "The book is not common and has not been reprinted except for the Geneva edition" (Fulton).It "was written by Boyle the year before his death. He explains in the preface that he borrowed the title from Santorio's Medicina Statica, and he might have apologized for the term 'medicina', for, in modern parlance, the book is essentially a monograph devoted to a special branch of physics... it was Boyle who first directed the attention of physicists and chemists to the importance of specific gravity. Pages 145 to 224 are of considerable interest in the history of mineralogy showing the specific gravities of various ores. Near Fine....

Internally little browned, worming to lower blank margin of first leaves, faint dampstaining to final two leaves. Provenance: The library of Hugh Selbourne (small ink stamp to half-title verso and p.51). Good copy. ----Fulton 191; Wing B3931, B4019, B3983. FIRST EDITIONS, first issues, without half-title and with uncancelled title-page mentioning "John Wyat" in the imprint. "This tract has certain human interest since in the Preface to Part I, and also in the text itself, Boyle discusses the reasons why as a professed scientist he has devoted so much attention to religion, or between reason and dogmatic faith - and he wishes to state his conviction (Fulton, p.130). The second part of The Christian virtuoso was not published until 1744. "Reflections upon a theological distinction" (Wing B4019) and "Greatness of mind, promoted by Christianity" (Wing B3983) each have separate dated title page, pagination, and register. Neither were separately published. Very Good.

LA FONTAINE
Amsterdam, Antoine Michils, 1690. ____ Première édition de cette traduction. Elle contient 8 fables de La Fontaine en première édition. Cette parution a échappé à Rochambeau, à Rochebilière et à Tchemerzine. Ces bibliographes ne se sont pas aperçus que ces fables paraissaient ici pour la première fois, avant d'être publiées dans la première édition collective, en 1694. La postface affirme pourtant : "La Fontaine me pria d'ajouter que la pluspart des fables qui entraient en ce nouvel ouvrage n'avaient pas été imprimées avec celles qui avaient paru sous son nom puisque la fantaisie lui était venue faire ces dernières à la vue de l'aprobacion que le public donnait aux premières". Ces fables sont : Le Renard anglois (p. 275), Le Renard et les poulets d'Inde (p. 284), Le Philosophe Scite (p. 288), Le Rat, le corbeau, la gazelle et la tortue (p. 295), Le Fou et le sage (p. 298), L'Eléphant et le singe de Jupiter (p. 301), La Folie et l'amour (p. 336) et Le Singe (p. 351). Illustré par un beau frontispice gravé et 157 gravures sur cuivre d'après Pieter van der Borcht. Titre en rouge et noir. Très bel exemplaire, relié par Petit, successeur de Simier. Provenances : - Ex-libris gravé Albert Pascal. (Bibliophile marseillais dont la bibliothèque a été vendue en 1889.) - Ex-libris gravé par Martin-Sabon de Hubert Person (homme de loi du début du XXe). Landwehr, Emblem and Fables Books Printed in the Low Countries, F071. *****. In-12. Collation : (2), 236 pp. Veau brun glacé, dos à nerfs orné, encadrements dorés sur les plats, tranches dorées.

Locke, John
London: by Eliz. Holt, for Thomas Basset, 1690. First edition. Elizabeth Holt imprint, the first issue according to Yolton 61A; PMM 164; Pforzheimer 599. (Current scholarship is mixed as to priority between this and the Basset imprint). Folio (pages: 313 x 190 mm), collates complete: A4; (a)2; B-Ccc4; 198 leaves (misnumbered at 76, 77, 287, 296 and 303). With the two emendations (in Locke's hand?) on leaves A(3) and A(4). (Yolton 61A.) Bound in full contemporary calf, rebacked (and recornered) with the original spine laid down. Title page with a small previous owner's name removed and professionally repaired, but with some staining around the area. Second leaf with some offsetting in the same place. Two other leaves Ccc2 and Ccc3 with upper margins restored, no text affected (just touching top rule). Otherwise an excellent set internally. Page block tight, with well-margined, crisp leaves, generally unblemished and unmarked. A monolith in the landscape of philosophical treatises, Locke was the first "to attempt to estimate critically the certainty and the adequacy of human knowledge when confronted with God and the universe," and concludes that man has a means of controlling his own destiny and is thus not the pure victim of chance. PMM 164. He advanced the concept of people born "tabula rasa," and filled through their lives by experiences. This concept formed the basis for the empiricist camp in modern philosophy, later expanded by Hume and Berkeley. "An Essay" was placed on the Catholic Index in 1700 for its controversial content, where it remains to this day (see Height, … [Click Below for Full Description]
