Suite complète imprimée en Hollande de 24 portraits satiriques gravés à la manière noire, représentant le roi Louis XIV et différents personnages liés à la révocation de l'édit de Nantes : Guillaume de Furstenberg, Louvois, Bossuet, Beaumier, Pelisson, l'évêque de Saintes, l'archevêque de Paris, Maimbourg, Peters, La Reynie, Demevin, la Rapine, l'archevêque de Reims, du Viger, le Camus, Mme de Maintenon, le commissaire de la Mare, Le Tellier, Boufflers, Marillac, Baville, le Père la Chaise et le roi Jacques II. « Lorsque vint la révocation de l'édit de Nantes, des Protestants prêtèrent à cette guerre par l'image l'appui de leurs idées et de leur haine légitime, si bien qu'on peut rencontrer dans plusieurs pièces, non pas une exécution, mais une inspiration française. Les Protestants se vengèrent ainsi des supplices qu'on leur avait fait endurer (...) en publiant le recueil Héros de la Ligue, suite de portraits-charge, travestis d'une façon plus ou moins spirituelle, de tous les évêques, ministres et autres personnages politiques ayant pris part à la révocation » (Grand-Carteret) Les portraits sont attribuées à Cornelis Dusart (1660-1704) et Bernard Picart … [Click Below for Full Description]

First Editions.First (only) edition of the two famous Spinozistic Philopater-novels. The first volume describes the fight of the protagonist Philopater (very much similar to the author) against the orthodox Calvinism of Voetius and Coccejus, with some references to Spinoza and his followers. Since both the orthodox and the more liberal party in the Dutch Republic were attacked it did not arouse too much protest from the authorities. In the second volume Spinoza's ideas are clearly expressed in a more popular way. 'We find in this book, without any doubt, a rather pure tradition from Spinoza's most intimate circle of friends on the true meaning of difficult points in his teaching' (Dunin-Borkowski quoted by Bamberger).The book was severely prosecuted and in 1698 forbidden by the Court of Holland and the States of Friesland. It brought its publisher - and perhaps co-author - 8 years imprisonment, a fine of 3000 guilders, and 25 years of banishment. *Van der Linde 72 & 73. Wolf 643. Bamberger 85.

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]

For that purpose he traveled to Fuerth, but the court factor, Model of Ansbach, persuaded him to instead publish his own book, Petah ha-Ohel. This work is in two parts, each with its own title page and foliation. The first title page states that it is a wondrous work, entirely new, there was not like it under the sun. The second title page is more detailed, explaining that it is on Talmudic methodology and differences and disputes between tanna¿im and amora'im, "studied and researched as has not been done, connected and bound, 'rope by rope' (Shabbat 113a, Pesahim 11a), 'pulled and drawn'" (Bava Batra 86a) . . … [Click Below for Full Description]

MENESTRIER, Claude François
I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. 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]

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]

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).

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.

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.
