Sherlock, William
London: For W. Rogers, 1691. Book. Very Good-. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Balance of title and printing data,"Stated and Resolved, according to Scripture and Reason, and the Principles of the Church Of England, with a more particular Respect to the OATH, lately enjoyned, of Allegiance to Their Present Majesties K. William and Q. Mary.---London: Printed for W. Rogers, at the Sun over against St. Dunstans Church in Fleet-Street 1691. ' Wing # given in collectors notes is S3269, and collation is quarto, correct per Wing. Boards measure 8 x 6", text measures 7 3/4 x 5 1/2, 66 pages paginated + 1 advertisement. Pamphlet reworked as book with gray hardcovers, new pastedown and endsheet followed by Title page (verso blank but with long ancient inked inscription by a Mr. Brown, some odd allegory twixt the trinity and Sherlock's oath of fealty to two kings) followed by 6 page preface and 2 page TOC. Text commences at page 1 with no faults of pagination noted. The text edges are stained red, top darkened and the margins seem uniform, unsure if they have been cropped but they have unusual degree of uniformity. Seemingly the same hand which penned the inscription has penned an X or 2 on many pages, perhaps to mark his progress in the reading. The text while legible is somewhat rough, has trace foxing, the odd mild crease, mild age darkening at edges. The boards have a newish look (grade above may be though as compromise between boards and text) black spine label with gilt, but, perhaps stored flat as there is trace cocking. Book so slender as to make this hard t … [Click Below for Full Description]

[WALSH, William]
London:: R. Bentley and J. Tonson,, 1691.. First Edition. 8vo, pp.(viii)1-134, (2 blank). Bound in contemporary, neatly speckled calf (worn along the hinge, spine stamping worn off). Preface by John Dryden. Although not uncommon in institutional holdings, we have not had a copy since 1985; there is only one listing in ABPC for the last 25 years. NCBEL II, 446 & 448. Wing, W-646A, Macdonald 136; Grolier 945; Grolier, Wither to Prior, 945; NUC locates 10 copies; Kanner p. 181. Walsh (1663-1708), was a man of fashion as well as a critic, poet, and member of Parliament. After the death of his father, he divided his time between the pursuits of a country gentleman and those of a conspicuously well-dressed, amorous beau in London. He joined the wits at Will's Coffee House in Covent Garden, presided over by Dryden. Ostensibly addressing himself to his mistress, Walsh dissects the attacks on women in contemporary literature with a strident defense of the intellectual potential of women and argues for the equality of women. Attacking the stereotypes that had been promulgated by anti-feminists, he reviews the biographies of notable women and defends them. Despite the subtitle, Walsh hedges his bets and agrees with some of the criticism of women as well. The addressee, "Eugenia," is believed to be the countess of Kingston, one of Walsh's mistresses. The most notable of his writings is the present work and his Letters and Poems, amorous and gallant (1692). His chief claim to fame is his early championship of the young Alexander Pope, who printed their correspondence in 1735. Of … [Click Below for Full Description]

Edition Originale. 1 ff blanc, titre, 26 ff n. ch. et 284 pages (erreur en dernière page, indiquée 82). 1 volume in-16 (14,5*8,5 cm) relié pleine basane d'époque, dos à nerfs, caissons ornés, pièce de titre.

Médecin et philosophe protestant converti au catholicisme, Samuel Sorbière fut nommé historiographe du roi en 1660. L'ouvrage est une sorte de compilation, classées par ordre alphabétique, de réflexions, pensées, et autres anecdotes le plus souvent caustiques de Sorbière, en latin et en français. (Brunet, 18537, qui ne cite qu'une Edition de 1694). Chaudon dans son Dicionnaire universel conteste l'attribution de cet ouvrage à Sorbière (T. XVI, p 317 : "C'est un Recueil de sentences ou bons mots qu'on suppose qu'il avoit proférés"). [Attributes: First Edition]

Published a year after Pepys' classic MEMOIRES RELATING TO THE STATE OF THE ROYAL NAVY OF ENGLAND.

Indeed, the motto beneath his superb portrait reads: "When England's Rule in British Seas doth Cease / Farewell their Wealth, their Glory, and their Peace" New Wing M-1420; Westwood & Satchell p. 268

Fisches, Isaac (Maler) & Heckauer, Leonhard (Stecher).
Augsburg. 1691. J.M.Roth - Augsburgisches Friedens - Gedächtnüs Die „ Augsburger Friedensgemälde „ sind jährlich erscheinende Einblattdrucke mit erläuterndem Text, die an den Westfälischen Frieden von 1648 erinnern sollten. Die Initiative dazu ist von der evangelischen Barfüßergemeinde ausgegangen. Zwischen 1651 und 1789 erschienen insgesamt 138 Blätter mit Kupferstichen unter Beteiligung von 55 Künstlern als Zeichner und Kupferstecher; allein für das Jahr 1653 ist kein Kupferstich, sondern nur ein Gebet gedruckt worden. „ Die Reihe ist somit ein Musterbuch der Augsburger Künstler dieser Zeit". Die Druckplatten wurden von der Barfüßer-Pfarrei aufbewahrt; es folgten immer wieder Nachdrucke, die in Sammelbänden mit eigenem Titel und einer Einführung verlegt wurden. Nach der Herausgabe im Jubiläumsjahr 1748 folgten bis 1789 noch 41 Jahrgänge. Sämtliche Jahrgänge wurden 1790 ein letztes Mal mit neuem Titel versehen herausgegeben. Lit.: Seitz, Augsburg. Anhand der großen Auswahl der gezeigten Blätter, an der teils bedeutende Stecher und Zeichner der Augsburger Schule beteiligt waren, lässt sich die Stielentwicklung des Augsburger Kupferstichs vom Hoch- über den Spätbarock bis zum Rokoko ( etwa ab 1740 ) verfolgen; die letzten Stiche zeigen sogar frühklassizischtischen Stil. - In leuchtenden Farben kolorierter Kupferstich. Sprache: Deutsch Kolorierter Kupferstich. 44 x 30 cm. mit dem Text.
