A title vignette repeated by Mariette contained a crowned muse wearing a caduceus, symbolizing eloquence. Binding in full black morocco from the late nineteenth Capé signed. Back to Jansenist nerves. Title, volume number and golden time. Rich inner frieze. Gilt edges. Petty friction traces in tail. Very nice copy in a suitable binding text. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Une vignette de titre répétée par Mariette figurant une muse couronnée portant un caducée et symbolisant l'éloquence. Reliures en plein maroquin noir de la fin du XIXe signée Capé. Dos à nerfs janséniste. Titre, tomaison et date dorés. Riche frise intérieure. Tranches dorées. Menues traces de frottements en queue. Très bel exemplaire, dans une reliure appropriée au texte. Valentin Esprit Fléchier fut unanimement considéré comme un des plus grands orateurs de son siècle, outre qu'il était un prêtre et un prédicateur. Les oraisons funèbres qu'il prononcera en chaire lui valurent rapidement son entrée à l'Académie française. Dans un exercice telle que l'oraison funèbre, Fléchier a le mérite de ne jamais tomber dans la vaine louange, mais dans un style élégant, de dresser un portrait juste. Les deux volumes rassemblent les oraisons de la Duchesse de Montausier, Madame d'Aiguillon, Monsieur de Turenne, Marie-Thérèse d'Autriche, le chancellier Le Tellier, Madame la Dauphine, Monsieur de Montausier.

Mather, Cotton
Boston: Printed by Benjamin Harris, and John Allen, for Joseph Brunning, 1691. First edition. A rare family presentation copy of Mather's 1691 biography of John Eliot, in which he describes Eliot's translation of the bible into the Massachusett language. Eliot's Indian Bible, printed between 1660 and 1663, was the first complete bible printed in the Americas. This book was given by the author to his brother-in-law, Nehemiah Walter, with Walter's signature on the title page and: "Ex dono reverendi [Au]-thoris" (slightly obscured by worming) in the same hand (which translates roughly to: "revered gift from the author"). Nehemiah Walter married the Cotton Mather's sister, Sarah Mather in 1691. In addition, Nehemiah "spent some time ... as John Eliot's colleague in missions to the Indians," between graduating from Harvard in 1684 and assuming ministerial duties at Roxbury in 1688. Nehemiah's son, Thomas Walter, was close with his uncle, and Cotton Mather delivering a moving commemoration of him after his passing in a work titled: "Christodulus..." published in Boston in 1725. A rare, complete copy of this early American imprint in an unrestored contemporary binding. Some marginal worming and toning, as expected, but otherwise in exceptional condition. Several other ownership signatures to the front end-paper from the 18th and 19th centuries complete the chain of provenance. The last complete copy at auction brought $15,000 in 1999 (Sotheby's), and that was washed and in a modern binding. A copy lacking the title page sold at Heritage in 2014 for over $10,000.

ESPINOSA Y MALO (Felix de Lucio).
Mazzarino, por Juan Vanberge, Flamengo, 1691. - Petit in-4. (le feuillet *1 n'existe pas) 7ff. 285pp. Plein veau, dos à nerfs orné (rleiure du 18e siècle, frottée). Edition Originale extrêmement rare, publiée à Mazzarino en Sicile. Cet ouvrage curieux fut publié à la mort de l'auteur par son ami Diego Vicencio de Vidania, célèbre bibliophile et numismate originaire de Huesca (Aragon). Il est divisé en deux parties. La première (pp.1-130) est un exercice littéraire de symbolisme, dans lequel l'auteur s'attache à décrire les concepts en termes poétiques, pour leur donner ensuite une interprétation symbolique. Ainsi la "Descripcion de la felicidad" est suivie de "El Microscopio, simbolo de la felicidad ", la "Descripcion del Tiempo" de "El Tiempo, simbolo de la Prudencia", la "Descripcion de los sueños" de "Simbolo de los sueños fue el capricho de Pintor celebre en un quadro, que por un lado se descubria un Leon, por otro una Aguila y mirandole de medio a medio se veia un Hombre", etc. La deuxième partie (pp.131-285) est un recueil de 33 déclamations prenant pour thème divers épisodes remarquables de l'histoire ou de la mythologie, autant de situations dont l'auteur s'exerçait à exprimer les ressorts tragiques sous forme de courtes déclamations de quelques pages. Felix de Lucio Espinosa y Malo (1646-1691) vécut la plus grande partie de sa vie en Italie. Il fut mémorialiste de la couronne d'Aragon, de celle de Castille et secrétaire d'état du roi Carlos II en Sicile, où il mourut en 1691 laissant une œuvre remarquable par son érudition et par sa diversité: histoire, poésie … [Click Below for Full Description]

Palavicino y Villarrasa, Francisco Javier
Mexico: Por Doña Maria de Benavides, viuda de Juan de Ribera Small 4to. [5], 7 ff.. 1691 The Convent of Jesus Maria was established in the late 16th century in Mexico City for the granddaughters and great-granddaughters of conquistadors and other early settlers who lacked dowries that would allow them to marry in their station. Later the requirement of ties to conquerors and early settlers was relaxed. The present sermon was preached on the occasion of the special event in the church of the convent that is mentioned in the title of this work. => It came from the press of one of the great woman printers / printing entrepreneurs of colonial Mexico. Searches of NUC, WorldCat, COPAC, CCBP, and the OPACs of the national libraries of Mexico and Spain locate only the copy at the John Carter Brown Library, but we have an unverified report of another in the Lafragua Collection at Mexican National Library. Mid-20th-century red pebbled morocco, gilt spine. Partial marca de fuego on top and bottom edges. Wormtrack into text, touching but not costing words; generally quite clean with just an old spot or two to title-page. Very good.

Josephus, Flavius
Coloniae: Sumptibus Mauritii Georgii Weidmanni Folio. 38 ff., 1102 pp., 4 ff., 68 pp., 13 ff.. 1691 Josephus (b. A.D. 37) provides one of the very few non-biblical sources of Jewish history. This scholarly Cologne edition, in handsome => folio, offers a complete compilation of his works presented in the original Greek with Latin translation side-by-side on each page. The volume begins with the Antiquities of the Jews, translated into Latin and edited by Sigmund Gelen (1497–1554), who also offers a biography of Josephus, based on his works, and the Against Apion. The Jewish War appears as translated and edited by Rufinus of Aquileia (A.D. 345–410), and Josephus's history of the Maccabean Rebellion is translated and edited by => Erasmus of Rotterdam. In the five-part appendix are the Aristeas de LXX Interpretibus in Greek and Latin, translated into the latter by Matthias Garbatius; Ad Epitomen Aristeæ; a variorum of Book VII of the Jewish War and the Maccabean Rebellion based on the MSS. in the Leipzig collection; a Latin version of the Libelli de Maccabæis by Francisco Combesis; and fragments from the p e r i p a n t a V , ascribed to Josephus, edited by David Hoeschel based upon the work of Stephan le Moyne. Sidenotes refer the reader to important historical details and parallel biblical passages. This edition was compiled from MSS. in the Palatine library and is a revised and improved version of the Geneva edition of 1591.

Denys d' HALICARNASSE
New edition whose achievement is due to Friedrich Sylburg; the first edition of Sylburg seems to have appeared in 1586 in Frankfurt. Two title pages shown in red and black with a large thumbnail title, brand Weidmann printer. Bilingual edition in double column with the Latin look. This edition also contains the chronology of Glarean. Copy of arms of the city of Venice struck on the dishes. Bound in full vellum gilded. Back with nerves decorated with jewels and nets. As an exhibit in red morocco. Double frame net with angular irons, mentoring and second with double net. Vellum dirty, crumpled title page bearing a thin tear without missing foxing and browning scattered, sometimes quite marked. Despite vellum wearing uniforms dirt wove splendid golden weapons of Venice. Hellenistic deemed the sixteenth century, Sylburg was director of Latin and Greek editions of the printing of Wechel in Frankfurt; publishing works of Halicarnassus in Greek and Latin, with many comments, is one of his best achievements. If Antiquities of Rome's most famous work of Halicarnassus (where the author attempts to connect the first Rome to Greece), bears the Latin translation next to Sylburg, it is not just the rhetoric, only in Greek.

Petty, Sir William
London: printed for Robert Clavel at the Peacock, and Hen. Mortlock at the Phoenix in St. Paul's, 1691. Second edition (first was 1690). [24], 117, [3] pp. 8vo. Contemporary calf, neatly rebacked to style with red leather spine label; endpapers renewed, with original free endpapers preserved. Text block a bit closely cropped, touching an occasional catchword or printed shoulder note, otherwise a remarkably crisp and clean copy. The extraordinary Sir William Petty (1623-1687) was a man of many parts: anatomist, physician, professor of music, inventor, statistician, Member of Parliament, demographer, cartographer, one of the founding members of the Royal Society, and the author of many books, including this groundbreaking application of statistics to the study of economics: "... The novelty in Petty's approach was to quantify ... by abstracting numbers and using these as the basis of calculation, whether of profit and loss in his own Irish ironworks or English trades and industries, he constructed the method known as political arithmetic which was widely copied in the later seventeenth century (and beyond). In addition, by isolating such issues as the velocity of circulation, the difference between the natural and market price of a commodity, and the theory of economic surplus, he established important themes and methods for classical economists ..." (ODNB).

NEWTON, Sir Isaac.
First printing, very rare, of these letters of Newton which Koyré has described as "one of the most precious and important documents for the study and interpretation of Newtonian thought" (Koyré, p. 202). Newton here gives his views on the nature of gravity, on the formation of the solar system, on action-at-a-distance, and much else. He even foresaw in these letters the modern theory of galaxy formation (see below). Newton had been very careful to exclude such speculative 'philosophical' comments from <i>Principia</i>: in its second edition he famously proclaimed "<i>Hypotheses non fingo</i>," or "I feign no hypotheses." No copy of these letters located in auction records in the last 75 years.<br/><br/> "When the great English natural philosopher Robert Boyle died at the end of 1691, he endowed a lecture series designed to promote Christianity against what Boyle took to be the atheism that had infected English culture after the revolutionary period of the mid-century. Famous Newtonians such as Samuel Clarke and William Whiston would eventually give the Boyle lectures. The first "Boyle lecturer" was the theologian Richard Bentley (1662-1742), who would eventually become the Master of Newton's <i>alma mater</i>, Trinity College, Cambridge... When preparing his lectures for publication-they had been presented to a public audience in London in 1692-Bentley conferred with Newton, hoping to solicit his help in deciphering enough of the <i>Principia</i> to use its results as a bulwark against atheism. Newton obliged, and a famous correspondence between the two began (eventually p … [Click Below for Full Description]
