Worlidge was one for the first English agricultural writers. His Systima Argiculture (1668) was an important early treatise on husbandry. In this book, first published in 1676, Worlidge advocated the production of cider over wine in Great Britain because of the cooler climate. It is hard not to enjoy Worlidge's cider triumphalism, "Having tasted a little of those several Dainties that are in most Countries liquidly prepared to please the Palate, I hope every Englishman, or native of this Isle, on his return hither, will conclude with me, that our British Fruit yields us the best Beverages; and of these Fruits, the Apple is best, which is here called Cider." <br> Contents: CHAP.

DROUIN, Vincent Denis
Guillaume de Lüyne, 1691. FIRST EDITION OF THIS VERY RARE AND ORIGINAL WORK ON THE BRAIN AND THE SENSE ORGANS. Recorded as a Maître Chirurgien de l’Hôpital General, ‘Drouin enjoyed an excellent reputation as a skilled surgeon in the French army and returned to private life to become chief surgeon at Les Petites Maisons in Paris. ‘This work, important in the development of neuroanatomy during the late seventeenth century, is the result of keen observation and careful dissection. In it, Drouin discusses the skull, the brain and its circulation, and the structure of the nose, eye, tongue, and ear. The nine folding plates were engraved from Drouin’s own drawings’ (Heirs of Hippocrates p. 247). Drouin clearly relies on his own anatomical dissections, rather than the authority of others. He cites, sometimes critically, Descartes, Duncan, Stensen, Bartholin, and Malpighi. Provenance: manuscript ex libris ‘Pt. Cholet M.DCC.LXXX.IIIII’ [sic] in ink within floral border, and pasted slip in ms. ‘Philibert Cholet 46’ on front pastedown; a similar ex libris of a book belonging to Cholet appears in a copy of Elie Col de Vilars, Cours de chirurgie dicté aux écoles de Médecine de Paris (Paris 1759). Heirs of Hippocrates 700; Krivatsy 3404; Wellcome II p. 487; OCLC locates only three copies in the US, at Iowa, National Library of Medicine, and Minnesota. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

VARILLAS (LEGATURA CON LE ARMI DEL CARDINALE MAZZARINO)
A Paris chez Claude Barbin, au Palais, sur le second Perron de la Sainte Chapelle, 1691. In 4to grande (cm. 25,5); piena pelle coeva, dorso a 5 nervi. Cornici in oro, 4 gigli agli angoli ed armi del Cardinale Mazzarino al centro dei piatti. Pp. (30), 578. Qualche spellatura e lievi danni alle cerniere, all'interno bella copia. Non si tratta di una copia proveniente dalla Biblioteca del cardinale Mazzarino (1602 - 1661) ma dal Collegio "des Quatre Nations" alla fondazione del quale il Cardinale Giulio Mazzarino per testamento destinò il suo patrimonio. Questo Collegio deve il nome al fatto che per volontà del Mazzarino sessanta studenti delle 4 Provincie che con il Trattato di Wesphalie (1648) ed il trattato des Pyrénéès (1659) furono unite alla Francia hanno l'istruzione gratuita. Il Cardinale Mazzarino lasciò pure la sua Biblioteca al Collegio. Come premio ai migliori laureati il Collegio donava i volumi rilegati con le armi dell'illustre fondatore. Sotto la rivoluzione il "Collège des Quatre-Nations" divenne il "Collège de l'Unité" poi un carcere. Nel 1805 Napoleone vi installò l'"Institut de France" risultante dalla fusione nel 1795 di cinque Accademie (Académie française, Académie des inscriptions et des belles lettres, Académie des sciences, Académie des Beaux-Arts et Académie des sciences morales). Prese allora il nome con cui è arrivato ai nostri giorni: "Palais de l'Institut", sede dell'Académie française. Axs

MARCUS AURELIUS & ANNE DACIER.
Claude Barbin, Paris, 1691. Volume I : 1 blank leaf + TP + [i]-[xlii] = Preface + [xliii]-[ccxxix] = La vie de Marc Aurele Antonin + [ccxxx] = Privilege du Roy + [1]-284 + 2 blank leaves ; Volume II : 2 blank leaves + TP + 291-747 + [748] = Fautes d'impression + 2 blank leaves, 12 mo. First Edition.With the lovely engraved vignette by Clerc at the top of page 1 showing the warrior Emperor sitting outside his tent and writing his Meditations. Working with her husband, André, Madame Dacier translated the Meditations, but the remarks in the long, 42-page "Preface" are all her own. There she presented her summary and analysis of Marcus Aurelius' thought, defending the classical Stoic perspective with philosophically sophisticated arguments while simultaneously tempering some of the Emperor's more heathen positions with her own passionately held Christian brand of Stoicism. In that same essay, she also used the truths of Stoicism to pointedly attack and excoriated the Epicurean philosophy which was then becoming fashionable in France. Dacier was received into the Academy of Ricovrati of Padus in 1684 and, shortly thereafter, she and her husband abjured their reformed religion and converted to Catholicism. Back in Paris, they were received by the King and the first president of the Paris parliament, M. de Harley, who lent them his country house at Ménil-Montant. It was on this quiet estate that they pursued de Harley's suggestion to translate Marcus Aurelius, a task that they tackled together, and where Madame Dacier composed the remarks found in her "Preface."

Firenze [Florence]: Per Piero Matini, 1691. Small quarto (23 cm), (8), 46; (2), 251, pages. Title page in red and black with printer's vignette; decorative head- and tail-pieces, and ornamental initial caps. Text in Italian. ~ Third edition, improved. Franceso Redi (1626-1697) used the form of Ditirambo (dithyramb), a poetic meter of the ancient Greeks in the form of a song, here a paean praising the benefits of wine, particularly Tuscan wine. "Redi's poem is thought to have its beginning in a drinking session at the Academia della Crusca in 1666. The situational irony of this learned body in a state of inebriation is transferred to Redi's verse as the praises of solemn literati are sung by a drunken Bacchus. The poem is filled with references to classical as well as contemporary winemaking practices." (Catholic Encyclopedia). The one thousand line poem is forty-six pages, followed by additional annotations including other beverages and chocolate. "One of the most famous panegyrics on wine ever written... The notes are full of learned information on wines of all kinds, and on other drinks such as chocolate, tea and coffee, which latter Redi particularly hated." (Simon BG). Redi was a leading Florentine physician, in the employ of both Ferdinand II and Cosimo III. He is known for discrediting the theory of spontaneous generation and for his work in the field of parasitology. ~ Contemporary full vellum, gilt-decorated spine with leather title label.

Stampa ottocentesca a cura della Regia Calcografia di Roma della seconda edizione (presumibilmente originariamente stampata dal De Rossi tra il 1691 ed il 1695) . Questa ed. comprende le 103 tavv. della prima ed. (circa del 1660), cui sono state aggiunte (nel 1691) due tavv. di Domenico de Rossi. L'opera fu progettata e iniziata dal Ferrerio nel 1638 circa; il secondo libro, "Nuovi disegni delle architetture e piante dei palazzi di Roma de' più celebri architetti...", fu realizzato da G. B. Falda, che ne fu anche l'intagliatore, e venne pubblicato nel 1665 da G. G. De Rossi. Riguardo al primo libro non si conosce il nome dell'incisore: il Ferrario firma le tavole solo in qualità di disegnatore. Le più importanti tipologie edilizie romane sono illustrate dal Ferrario sia in alzato sia in pianta, a partire dall'età d'oro di Bramante, Raffaello, Peruzzi e Michelangelo per poi passare a Vignola, Ammannati, Ligorio, Della Porta, dedicando infine un modesto spazio agli architetti del nuovo secolo, quali Bernini, Borromini o Domenico Fontana: segnale evidente, questo, di quanto l'orientamento della cultura e del gusto del Seicento maturo tendesse verso … [Click Below for Full Description]

""non nobis solum nati sumus ortusque nostri partem patria vindicat, partem amici""(""Not for us alone are we born; our country, our friends, have a share in us."")With the Republic ended after Caesar's death and the Senate abolished, Cicero wrote what he considered to be his masterpiece-a work on ethics that emulated Greek philosophers as Romans had little native-grown philosophy. Among its most important elements is ""On Duties,"" written as a letter to Cicero's then 21-year-old son who was in university studies in Athens. Cicero composed ""On Duties"" in less than four weeks in October-November 44 BC, just over a year before Marc Antony had him killed. This Latin collection of the most popular of Cicero's moral treatises includes ""On Duties."" Among the famous sayings printed here: ""Primum, minima de malis.""

RAVENEAU (Jacques).
Paris, chez Jean Guignard, 1691. in-12. 6ff. 215pp. + 1 pl. dépl. Cartonnage moderne genre ancien. Edition très rare, du célèbre traité sur les faux en écriture de Jacques Raveneau. Maitre écrivain, expert en graphologie auprès du Parlement, Raveneau a étudié dans cet ouvrage, paru pour la première fois en 1665, les divers moyens de contrefaire, d'altérer ou de supprimer les écritures. Son influence durera plus de deux siècles. Alphonse Bertillon disait en 1898 : "Malgré l'aide apportée par la photographie et le microscope, l'expertise en écritures n'a guère progressé depuis Raveneau". Raveneau fut victime de son habileté. Ayant un jour tiré lui-même parti de ses connaissances particulières, il fut emprisonné et mourut dans les fers.

BARTOLI, Pietro Santi (1635-1700).
Nella Stamparia di Gio: Francesco Buagni, 1691., In Roma: - 4to. (323 x 219 mm) [8], 16, 15, 12 pp. Engraved section title-pages for each of the 3 parts, 116 full-page engraved plates (1-37, 1-46, 1-33). Full modern antique-style speckled calf, blind-stamped covers, raised bands, gilt-stamped black calf spine label. Fine. RARE. FIRST EDITION of this distinguished study of the ancient sepulchral lamps discovered in the tombs and caves of Rome. These lamps are shown in intricately-engraved plates; the plates were designed and engraved by Bartoli, with explanatory notes by Gio Pietro Bellori. Subsequent editions were published in Berlin in 1702 and Rome in 1704, but this first edition contains 12 plates not found in the later editions. Bellori was a prominent biographer of the Italian Baroque artists of the seventeenth century. As an art historian, he was the Baroque equivalent of Giorgio Vasari. "Giovanni Pietro Bellori (1613-1696), an eminent Italian archaeologist, was born at Rome in 1613. From his youth Bellori devoted himself to the study of art and antiquity, in which he was encouraged, and at the outset greatly assisted, by his uncle, Francesco Angeloni, secretary to Cardinal Aldobrandini, himself a good antiquary, and author of an account of the coins of the Roman Emperors, and of the Historia di Terni. Bellori wrote many works of great use in their day and which are still often referred to with advantage. Several of Bellori's works were posthumous; among them may be noticed- Le Antiche Lucerne Sepolcrali." [The English Cylopaedia, p. 206].

A Paris chez Claude Barbin, au Palais, sur le second Perron de la Sainte Chapelle, 1691. In 4to grande (cm. 25,5); piena pelle coeva, dorso a 5 nervi. Cornici in oro, 4 gigli agli angoli ed armi del Cardinale Mazzarino al centro dei piatti. Pp. (30), 578. Qualche spellatura e lievi  danni alle cerniere, all'interno bella copia. Non si tratta di una copia proveniente dalla Biblioteca del cardinale Mazzarino (1602 - 1661)  ma dal Collegio "des Quatre Nations" alla fondazione del quale il Cardinale Giulio Mazzarino per testamento destinò il suo patrimonio.  Questo Collegio deve il nome al fatto che per volontà del Mazzarino sessanta studenti delle 4 Provincie che con il Trattato di Wesphalie (1648)  ed il trattato des Pyrénéès (1659) furono unite alla Francia hanno l'istruzione gratuita. Il Cardinale Mazzarino lasciò pure la sua Biblioteca al Collegio. Come premio ai migliori laureati il Collegio donava i volumi rilegati con le armi dell'illustre fondatore. Sotto la rivoluzione il "Collège des Quatre-Nations" divenne il "Collège de l'Unité" poi un carcere. Nel 1805 Napoleone vi installò l'"Institut de France"  risultante dalla fusione nel 1795 di cinque Accademie (Académie française, Académie des inscriptions et des belles lettres, Académie des sciences, Académie des Beaux-Arts et Académie des sciences morales).

Av denna upplaga finns två varianter, en med tryckåret 1690 och denna. Den mycket sällsynta första upplagan utkom 1687 och omfattade bara 32 sidor! Detta är enligt Lindroth Bilbergs viktigaste arbete som matematiker och han bygger sin framställning på bland annat van Schooten, Blondel, Napier och Briggs. "Svenskt biografiskt lexikon" skriver: "Hans förnämsta prestation äro hans geometriska läroböcker, som under den följande tiden allmänt användes vid gymnasierna. De innehålla endast obetydligt av syntetisk geometri, då man för denna del av matematiken använde M. Gestrinius' Euklides, men desto mera trigonometri och planimetri. Med Anders Spole delar han äran av att hava infört ordentliga algebraiska beteckningar och framför allt studiet av logaritmen i de svenska skolorna". Volymen har tillhört Laurentius Brems (sannolikt en ättling till Lorens Johansson Brems i Göteborg, död 1651) och har medbundna anteckningar av honom i slu … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pagninus, Santes
Basel, Johann Brandmueller, 1691. (525) p. Contemporary folding Vellum, 12° (The fourth Basle edition of this polyglot version of the Psalms by the Italian Dominican scholar Santes Pagninus, 1470-1536. The work contains the Latin version by Pagninus and a Hebrew version on facing pages. Pagninus is best known for his new Latin translation of the entire Bible which was published in 1528. His Bible translation stands out for its literal adherance to the Hebrew and was more accurate than the Vulgate, thus gaining the preference of many scholars. An earlier edition of this Latin translation of the Psalms present here is known to have been the main source of Marnix van St. Aldegonde's Dutch translation of the Psalms. Altogether a charming copy.) Heller, Marvin J. (2011). The Seventeenth Century Hebrew Book, p. 952-953 / Lenselink, S.J.

VOLANT des VERQUAINS (Jean).
Lille, Jean Chrysostome Malte, 1691. In-12 de (8) ff. 176 pp.; veau brun moucheté, dos à nerfs orné, coupes ornées, tranches mouchetées (reliure de l'époque). Première et unique édition, illustrée d'un plan gravé dépliant de la forteresse de Banko (ou Bangkok). En 1685, Louis XIV envoya une première ambassade auprès du roi du Siam, durant laquelle un traité commercial fut signé. En retour, le roi Narai envoya une ambassade en France qui fit sensation, et un contigent de troupes françaises fut ensuite envoyé pour établir une garnison à Bangkok. Mais après la mort du roi Narai, son successeur ne suivit pas la même politique et chassa les Français. C'est cet épisode, connu sous le nom de révolution de Siam (et notamment le siège de Bangkok) qui est relaté dans cet ouvrage par Jean Volant, ingénieur et architecte originaire de Lille, que Louis XIV avait nommé ingénieur en chef et commandant d'une compagnie. Bel exemplaire de cet ouvrage peu commun, avec le nom du comte de Brandt en lettres dorées sur le premier plat. Houdoy, Les imprimeurs lillois, page 412.

2 ouvrages en 1 volume in-16. Plein chagrin vert, dos à nerfs orné, filets dorés sur les plats qui sont doublés de soie blanche encadrée d'une dentelle dorée, gardes de soie, tranches dorées (Reliure du XIXs.). Précieuse réunion de 2 ouvrages de petit format (10,5 x 6,5)cm., extrêmement rares, à l'usage des enfants. 1). Livre de prières catholiques, avec un texte de conseils adressé "To Parents", illustré de 35 très curieuses figures gravées sur bois de facture populaire, représentant différents moment de la messe. Cet ouvrage manque à toutes les bibliothèques anglaises, européennes et américaines. Nous n'avons pu vérifier avec un autre exemplaire ou description pourquoi le titre annonce 36 figures, alors que cet exemplaire est complet de toutes ses pages et apparaît bien complet avec 35 figures. 2). Edition à l'usage des enfants de Londres, de l'ouvrage de l'évêque catholique Richard Challoner (1691-1781), figure majeure du catholicisme anglais au XVIIIème siècle. Cette édition manque à toutes les bibliothèques anglaises, européennes et américaines. J.P. Coghlan, l'imprimeur de ces deux petits ouvrages, était spécialisé dans l'impression de livres catholiques; il fut actif surtout après 1780. Malgré quelques rousseurs, bon exemplaire très bien relié au XIXème siècle.

Il est l'auteur de deux ouvrages sur la Viole et du présent traité sur l'art de chanter. La perfection de son art, ses ouvrages et son enseignement, lui valurent un grand prestige. La présente édition de sa "Méthode claire" contient pour la première fois, avec une pagination particulière, une seconde partie ayant pour titre: "Eclaircissements sur plusieurs difficultez". L'ouvrage est illustré de nombreux exemples de musique notée et d'une planche pliée composée de deux parties intitulées: "Démonstration de l'étendue des Clefs" et "Demonstration des unissons justes et des unissons supposez pour chanter seul sans une partition".
