SOME CONSIDERATIONS]
London: s.n, 1691. 4to., caption title, 36pp., first and last leaves lightly soiled, recently well bound in cloth, spine gilt lettered. A fine, crisp, copy with generous margins. First edition. A good essay on government finances and in particular why raising money to pay for the war through the excise would have to be done with the greatest care. The best solution, according to this writer, was to sell the Irish land 'belonging to the Irish Papists'. 'If they were exposed to sale, would find purchasers enough, at such kind of rates as they were formerly sold for up the like occasion; and the money which should arise from them would serve for a fund to defray a great part of the next years expence of the war'. [p.32]. Nonetheless, the writer continues, 'It has been laid down in Parliament as a good rule, to support the government in time of peace, by taxes upon trade; and in time of war, to have recourse to the land, because that tax will not be in danger of being continued when the war is over'.

De Lepine Lodovico
1691. Enigmatica carta geografica degli Stati di Savoia e Piemonte, realizzata utilizzado la matrice della carta "Stati di Savoia Piemonte etc Dedicati All'Illustrissimo et Eccellentissimo Signore Ottavio Manin Procuratore di S. Marco" ad opera del Coronelli e datata 1693. Da un'attento confronto con esemplari della carta del Coronelli risulta che la nostra è sicuramente da ritenere una delle primissime tirature e questo basterebbe per lasciare ipotizzare che la matrice in fase di realizzazione, a suo tempo ancora priva di quello che diverrà il definitivo cartiglio, fu utilizzata per la realizzazione di una carta ad hoc per la quale venne realizzato un particolare cartiglio. Il cartiglio è caratterizzato da un ghirlanda di putti alati inframezzati da scudi che racchiudono il titolo "Carta Generale degli Stati di Savoia Esattamente divisa in tutte le Provincie che la compongono secondo le relazioni più moderne", segue la dedica ad eccellenti personalità quali ad esempio quella di Sebastiano Soranzo che fu eletto nel 1690 a Procuratore di S. Marco. Sotto l'articolata dedica si legge "D. Lodovico de Lepine Sacerdote e Dottore di Sacra Teologia. Venetia 1691". La carta, sconosciuta a tutte le bibliografie consultate, è caratterizzata da pregevole acquerellatura coeva. Ottimo stato di conservazione.

Chinese philosopher Confucius's principles had a commonality with earlier Chinese tradition with an emphasis on personal and governmental morality, ancestral veneration, respect for one's elders, and strong family loyalty. His teachings left a legacy of disciples and gained widespread prominence under the Han and Tang Dynasties, became the official imperial philosophy of China after his death in 479 B.C.E., and remained the dominant philosophy in China until the early 20th century. Likely compiled and composed by his disciples after Confucius's death, the Analects, or Maxims, grew to be one of the central texts of Confucianism by the end … [Click Below for Full Description]

Leipzig Grosse & Gleditsch, 1691. (22,5 x 17 cm). (8) 590 (6) S. Mit 13 teils gefalteten Kupfertafeln. Pergamentband der Zeit. Interessanter Band mit wichtigen Arbeiten zum Ausbau des Leibnizschen Kalküls, alle in ersten Ausgaben. - Zu I: Leibniz löst hier das 1690 von Jakob Bernoulli gestellte Problem der Kettenlinie. - Ravier 110. - Zu II: Enthält Leibniz' Lösung der Catenaria unter Zuhilfenahme seines Kalküls, d.h. die Bestimmung der Gestalt eines biegsam an zwei Punkten frei aufgehängten Seils. - Ravier 111. - Zu III: In diesem naturphilosophisch wichtigen Aufsatz geht es um zwei Fragen, eine philosophische nach der Natur der materiellen Körper und eine physikalische nach dem konkreten Maß der Kräfte. Dabei hat Leibniz im Unterschied zu Papin und Descartes erkannt, dass ein Körper nicht nur durch seine räumlichen Momente sondern auch durch seine Kraft zu bestimmen ist. Das Maß der Kräfte gibt Leibniz im Gegensatz zu Descartes als das Produkt aus Masse und Quadrat der Geschwindigkeit an und nicht als Produkt aus Masse und Geschwindkeit. - Ravier 112. - Zu IV: Erste eigenständige Veröffentlichung von Johann Bernoulli. Er beschäftigt sich hier mit der logarithmischen Spirale, die er auch wunderbare Spirale "spira mirabilis" nannte. Die vorliegende Arbeit stellt den Beginn der Lehre von den elliptischen Integralen dar. - Zu V: Hier Huygens' Lösung der Catenaria ohne Zuhilfenahme der Infinitesimalrechnung. - Zu VI: In dieser grundlegenden Arbeit gelingt es Jakob Bernoulli durch die konsequente Einführung der Polarkoordinaten in die Analysis eine Theorie der Evoluten, der Kat … [Click Below for Full Description]

Laurent D'Houry, Paris, 1691. Plein veau de l'époque. Dos à cinq nerfs, orné et doré, portant la pièce de titre. Roulette dorée sur les coupes. Un volume in-12 (151x82 mm), 238 pages Coiffes et coins abîmés Papier bruni, très légère trace de mouillure. Rare édition originale de ce traité d'alchimie. Réunion de cinquante-trois lettres sur l'alchimie, prétendument écrites par Sendivogius, qui était connu en France sous le nom du Cosmopolite. Les lettres sont datées du 9 Février 1646 au 22 Janvier 1647, avec une autre lettre non datée. Comme il est mort en 1636, ces lettres n'ont pas pu être écrites par Sendivogius: elles ont été écrites par un alchimiste anonyme qui les attribue à Sendivogius. Au début de l'ouvrage, il est proposé de former une société d'alchimistes, les "philosophes inconnus" dont il est donné les statuts et le règles.

Jacob Benigni Bossuet (1627 - 1704) was a French bishop and theologian, renowned for his sermons and other addresses. He has been considered by many to be one of the most brilliant orators of all time and a masterly French stylist. In 1642, Bossuet enrolled in the Collège de Navarre in Paris to finish his classical studies and to begin the study of philosophy and theology. His mentor at Navarre was the college's president, Nicolas Cornet, the theologian whose denunciation of Antoine Arnauld at the Sorbonne in 1649 was a major episode in the Jansenist controversy. When Bossuet was chosen to be the tutor of the Dauphin, oldest child of Louis XIV, he wrote several works for the edification of his pupil, one of which was Politics Derived from the Words of Holy Scripture, a discourse on the principles of royal absolutism. The work was published posthumously in 1709. Signature required on delivery. [Attributes: First Edition]

Du Bureau D'Adresse aux Galeries du Louvre devant la Rue Saint Thomas. Rara raccolta completa delle pubblicazioni relative agli anni 1691 e 1692 della Gazette, il primo periodico francese, fondato nel 1631 da Théophraste Renaudot, medico di Luigi XIII. Organo ufficiale del governo, la Gazette usciva a cadenza settimanale ogni venerdì e riportava notizie dall'interno e dall'estero. Nei nostri fascicoli si susseguono le relazioni dei corrispondenti dalle principali città europee: oltre Parigi e Versailles, compaiono Varsavia, Vienna, Madrid, le principali città Tedesche, Londra, L'Aia, Rotterdam, Bruxelles; ampio spazio hanno le notizie dall'Italia: in ogni numero notizie da Roma, Milano, Venezia e Firenze. Trovano posto anche relazioni dai vari campi di battaglia della guerra di Successione del Palatinato. Il nostro volume raccoglie tutto il pubblicato delle due annate: dal 6 gennaio 1691 al 27 dicembre 1692. Mancano i frontespizi che accompagnano copie presenti in alcune biblioteche: il titolo di queste raccolte era "Recueil des nouvelles ordinaires et extraordinaires, relations et recits des choses avenues tant en ce royaume qu'ailleurs, pendant l'année..."
