MENESTRIER, Claude François
A rare history of the reign of King Louis XIV of France by Claude-François Ménestrier, an important Jesuit author. This book, 'History of King Louis the Great, Medals, Emblems' was the first historical account of a modern individual. In this first-hand account, Menestrier used medals, heraldic devices, and emblems drawn from the collection of Francis de la Chaise. Menestrier was a professor of rhetoric and cared for the organizing of festivals and ceremonies during the passage of Louis XIV to Lyon in 1685. This 1691 is a pirated Dutch edition printed in Amsterdam, even though the title page states Paris. This edition includes five plates that were satirical and 'anti-Louis' in nature than did not appear in the Paris edition. (Saffroy). Other plates include views of Places de Victories, arms of Chevaliers of the Ordre du Saint-Esprit and more. [Attributes: First Edition]

[Villars, Abbé de (Nicolas-Pierre-Henri de Montfaucon)]
Cologne: Pierre Marteau, 1691. Hardcover. Very good. [ca. 1691 and ca. 1703.] 16mo. Two volumes in one. 155;[2],150pp. In French. 18th or early 19th-century three-quarter calf and marbled boards, gilt spine rules, gilt leather label. First title page printed in red and black with armillary sphere device. Early inscriptions in flyleaf. Closely trimmed at fore-edge, touching some characters of text (with no loss). Joints expertly repaired, binding rubbed and moderately worn. Overall very good. Early edition of the best known work of Henri de Montfaucon, Abbé de Villars (1635-1673), for which he is said to have been murdered by the Rosicrucians. This edition adds the “Réponse à la lettre de Monseigneur” to the 1670 original text and is bound with a “posthumous” sequel published ca. 1703 by Pierre Mortier in Amsterdam. The primary work, a satirical dialogue between a Cabalist and a skeptic, is largely concerned with the Paracelsan idea of the marriage of elemental spirits to human beings. It ostensibly unveiled Rosicrucian secrets, which may have been what led to Villars’s assasination on the road to Lyon in 1673. Despite its satirical nature, the work has been treated as a source book for esoteric knowledge over the generations to the present day. F. Leigh Gardner describes it in that spirit in his BIBLIOTHECA ROSICRUCIANA: “The chief figure in it is said to be taken from G. F. Borri, who is the imaginary Count de Gabalis; although written in a satirical vein yet it contains profound truths; possibly the author found it necessary in those days … [Click Below for Full Description]

PSALTER. Liber Psalmorum, additis Canticis. Edited by Jacob Benigni Bossuet. Engraved frontispiece by P. Giffart. xciv, [4], 512, [14] pages. 8vo, later full black morocco, gilt-lettered spine, multi-fillet gilt turn-ins, all edges in gilt; light wear, a sound fresh copy. Binding sound wear to hinges as pictured on front cover bumped corners. Overall very good condition [Paris]: Jean Anisson, 1691 FIRST EDITION. Inscribed "Ex dono illustriss[imi] Epi[scopi] Authoris" on the title. This copy with variant title ornament and collation. Tchemerzine II, page 393. 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]

A fine example of the ‘Atlante Veneto' by Vincenzo Coronelli, “one of Italy's most illustrious cartographers” (Shirley). The work was intended as an extension of Blaeu's ‘Atlas Maior'.

The present work includes Coronelli's important two sheet maps of the continents, and the polar callotes from his 42 inch globe. Also included are a complete set of the maps of Chinese provinces (seven in total), together with the striking two sheet map of China. The maps of North America show the Mississippi with La Salle's recent explorations at its mouth in 1681-1687; the extent of French ambitions are reflected in the title ‘Canada - Nuova Francia' over most of the eastern half of the continent.

[4], 262, [2 bianche]. Segnatura: [π]4 A-Z8 AA-KK8. Carte KK7 e KK8 bianche. Stampato in carattere corsivo su due colonne. Ex-libris di Charles d'Orléans, Abbé de Rothelin (1691-1744), suo ex-libris inciso ed etichetta con numero 486 al contropiatto. Esemplare appartenuto anche a Giuseppe Martini (sua firma a matita al recto del risguardo libero anteriore). Prime carte lievemente brunite, piccola macchia d'umidità nel margine inferiore delle ultime venti carte, ottima copia. PRIMA EDIZIONE, dedicata da Andrea Calvo a Guillaume du Bellay in data 1 gennaio 1542, del celebre Rifacimento bernesco dell'Orlando innamorato del Boiardo, che modifica profondamente la struttura in ottave dell'originale, aggiungendovi proemi ai canti e vari passi inseriti all'interno del testo che comportano un aumento di circa duecentocinquanta ottave (cfr. H.F. Woodhouse, Language and style in a Renaissance epic: Berni's corrections to Boiardo's Orlando innamorato, London, 1982, pp. 237-238). L'edizione giuntina del 1541 reca probabilmente una data falsa ed è una riemissione della presente edizione. Una seconda edizione con alcune modifiche testuali apparve a Venezia nel 1545 (cfr. E.

CORONELLI, Vincenzo Maria.
Venice, 1691. Coloured. Two sheets conjoined, total 605 x 880mm. A large and highly decorative two-sheet map of North America, with two large cartouches and many vignettes from de Bry engraved in the interior and seas. Despite showing California as an island the map contains the most current information: as map-maker to Louis XIV Coronelli had access to the most recent reports by French explorers, including Marquette (1673) and La Salle (1682). Cumming notes that 'his delineation of the Great Lakes is the best and most accurate on a general map before the eighteenth century'. CUMMING: Exploration of North America, p.148.

Dutch Colonial History]: [New York]: [East Indies]: [Brazil]
Haarlem, 1691. Forty-one parts in seven volumes. Numerous engraved maps and plates. Small, thick quarto. Vellum over boards, manuscript spine labelling, edges sprinkled. Some light wear to edges of boards. Binding slightly separating from text block on first volume. Minor scattered foxing and toning, but generally quite clean internally. Very good, a handsome set in contemporary vellum. A complete run of this rare Dutch periodical recording news and events across the Dutch world, and with a wealth of information on the Dutch colonies. It was published by Pieter Casteleyn from 1651 to 1678, when his younger brother Abraham took over the publication. Upon Abraham's death a few years later, his wife took over publication until 1691. This run thus contains a complete set of the publication as issued by the Casteleyns (the work was later revived using the same title, but Sabin is incorrect in stating it was the same periodical). The exhaustive newsletter contained news from Europe - particularly England and France - and the Dutch colonies, such as New Amsterdam in North America, Brazil, and the activities of the Dutch East India Company. Each issue contains an engraved frontispiece and occasionally an engraved view or map. The early issues include several folding plates depicting naval battles; views include the island of Formosa; there are maps of different towns in Europe, including Strasbourg, Ghent, and London; and the frontispiece of the issue for 1660 shows a vignette of Oliver Cromwell being knocked down by the hand of God opposite a portrait of Charles II.

Binding sound wear to hinges as pictured on front cover bumped corners. Overall very good condition [Paris]: Jean Anisson, 1691 FIRST EDITION. Inscribed "Ex dono illustriss[imi] Epi[scopi] Authoris" on the title. This copy with variant title ornament and collation. Tchemerzine II, page 393. 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]

Barclay, Robert
London: Printed for Thomas Northcott, 1691. Second Edition. Very Good. Second edition. [181]-236 pp. Complete text but does not include Appendix: "Robert Barclay, His Vindication[...]" other copies were apparently bound with. Disbound with paper tape on spine. Very Good with slightly worn corners, small stains on last page and a small marginal checkmark there as well. Uncommon. A Quaker tract by prominent a Scottish Quaker and governor of East Jersey (later New Jersey), first published in 1674. Barclay portrays the more radical Puritans ("Ranters and Other Libertines") with their disorganization and "Romanists" (i.e. Catholics) with their extensive hierarchy as the two undesirable polar opposites the Quakers are sagely perched between. The Ranters (insofar as they were a coherent tendency and not a straw man created by conservatives) are of interest to historians of radical social movements for they were the undisputed vanguard of the English Revolution, advocating all sorts of heresies from public nudity to proto-communism to a sort of pre-Nietzschian amoralism. This text would be reprinted many times in the century following its initial publication, serving as a warning against the type of revolutionary excesses of the 17th century.

Very rare original edition and first issue specimen, self-contained first volume, of one of the most important works on the history of Canada, Nouvelle-France, and America, written by Father Chrestien Le Clercq. The present edition was suppressed and recalled by the French government on the grounds that it favoured the British territorial pretensions in Canada and America, among others. Very few original copies of this treasured account have survived. The New York Times announced on 18 March 1914 a record price paid for a book, "A new record price, $850, was paid in the Orasmus H.

Jean Baptiste NOLIN (1657 ca. - 1708)
Il Nolin installò l'attività editoriale di famiglia a Parigi, in via Rue St. Jacques, dove incise e vendette numerose mappe; su molte di queste, riportò erroneamente la dicitura di "incisore del Re" e "geografo del Duca di Orleans". Il concorrente Guillaume De L'Isle lo accusò e lo fece condannare per plagio, ma la sua attività continuò ad espandersi. L'opera è tratta dal celebre Theatre de la guerré en Italie.., per la prima volta edito nel 1691. La carta è arricchita da un meraviglioso cartiglio e dalle piante di Torino, Vercelli e Verrua. Incisione in rame, due grandi fogli uniti, traccia di pieghe di carta al verso, coloritura coeva dei contorni, in buono stato di conservazione. Bibliografia: Barrera, Il Piemonte nella cartografia del Settecento pp. 22-23, 60; Peyrot, Torino nei secoli, 71. Nolin estabilished his printing buisiness in Paris, Rue St. Jacques, where he engraved and sold many maps; on many of them, he erroneously wrote "King's engraver"and "Duque d'Orleans geographer". His competitor Guillaume De L'Isle accused him and had him condamend for plagiarism. His business, however, grew bigger and bigger. This work is taken from the famous Theatre de la guerré en Italie.., printed for the first time in 1691. The map is decorated with a marvellous cartouche and the plan of Turin, Vercelli and Verrua. Copperplate, two big sheets joined together, signs of fold on verso, contemporary colour on the borders, in excellent condition.

WILKINS, John
1691. One of the earliest books to describe the vision of human flight! 'Mathematical Magick' is an impressive and highly controversial 17th-century treatise by John Wilkins. Wilkins set out to explain the mechanics of mathematics and give an outlook for the future of the developments of math. However, this book was not focused only on arithmetic. Wilkins discusses the, mechanics of wheel and pulley physics, methods of the screw and the wedge, and the making of war machines - siege engines and catapults. While these discussions on physical science and mechanics are important and useful, the most impressive and interesting section is Wilkins perspective on the art of flying. Wilkins claims that the best chance of man flying is with the aid of spirts, angels, and ...birds! He also suggests that by fastening wings to the body, one could fly or fly a chariot. Wilkins himself describes other attempts at flight by other experimentalists: Tis related of a certain English Monk called Elmerus, about the Confessors time, that he did by such wings fly from a Tower above a furlong; and so another from Saint Marks steeple in Venice; another at Norinberge; and Busbequius speaks of a Turk in Constantinople, who attempted something this way. Though the truth is, most of these Artists did unfortunately miscarry by falling down and breaking their arms or legs, yet that may be imputed to their want of experience. Wilkins was certain with enough practice that man would learn to and should be able to fly! He even envisioned a 'flying chariot which may be so contrived as to carry a man within it … [Click Below for Full Description]

CORONELLI (Vincenzo).
[Venise, 1691]. 450 x 600 mm. Superbe carte figurant l'hémisphère occidental, soit l'Amérique ou Nouveau Monde. C'est l'une des plus belles cartes de l'Atlante Veneto, dédiée au sénateur Andrea Marcello, et ornée des armoiries du dédicataire dans le coin supérieur gauche. L'hémisphère est encerclé de tables de coordonnées géographiques et de la liste des signes du zodiaque. Au plan géographique, la carte reprend les informations de l'époque. Ainsi, la Californie est représentée comme une île, sur le second modèle de Nicolas Sanson. La Terre de Jesso, au nord-est du Japon, découverte par les Hollandais en 1643, est identifiée. Près de la Nouvelle-Zélande, partiellement dessinée, il est indiquée qu'elle fut découverte par les Hollandais en 1684. Fameux cartographe italien de la seconde moitié du XVIIe siècle, membre de l'ordre des Franciscains, Vincenzo Coronelli publia plus de 400 cartes géographiques, mises à jour grâce aux renseignements qu'il collectait auprès des navigateurs et des missionnaires. Il fabriqua également des globes terrestres et célestes qui firent sa renommée. En 1684, il fonda la première société européenne de géographie, l'Académie des Argonautes, et reçut en 1685 le titre très honorifique de Cosmographe de la République de Venise. Bel exemplaire finement aquarellé à l'époque avec rehauts d'argent au niveau du blason. Petit manque restauré à la pliure centrale. Burden, 677, état 1 ; McLaughlin, 105 ; Wagner, 435.

Dryden, John
London: Printed for Jacob Tonson, 1691. First edition. Hardcover. 4to. (14),51,(1)pp. The half-title is present with its advertisement on the reverse. Also present are the Prologue and the Epilogue. The earliest copies lack these leaves, but an unsigned leaf was inserted after A4 headed "Prologue to the OPERA, Spoken by Mr. Betterton." H2 was cancelled and a new leaf headed [H2v]: The EPILOGUE. Spoken by Mrs. Bracegirdle, the word FINIS being transferred from H2 to H2v. The text block shows some aging and light staining; it is finely bound in full crushed crimson morocco, unsigned but reminiscent of Sangorski: Spine in six compartments with raised bands, intricately tooled in gilt; gilt rules on the boards; gilt inner dentelles; endpapers of crimson Victorian cloth in a linen effect. Top edge gilt. The text has been bulked out with several pages of blank paper in the rear. A nice copy of the scarce first edition in a fine binding. Dryden's 'King Arthur' owes little to the Arthur of history of romance. The play centers around a battle with Oswald, a Saxon leader, which Arthur wins. He also wing the faire but blind Emmeline, whose sight is restored by Merlin. The play was first performed at the Queen's Theatre with music by Purcell, and marks the likely beginning of a rekindling of interest in King Arthur and other things monarchial after their suppression by Cromwell and the Commonwealth. Macdonald, 91 a ii. Arthurian Encyclopedia 121. Wing D2299. ESTC R18755. Fine. Item #18967. [Attributes: First Edition]
