      Paris: Chez Claude Barbin, 1693. FIRST EDITION. 248 x 191 mm (9 3/4 x 7 1/2"). Three volumes. SPLENDID AND UNUSUAL SUMPTUOUSLY GILT EARLY 19TH CENTURY MARBLED CALF WITH RED MOROCCO SPINES IN THE STYLE OF BOZERIAN, covers with gilt borders of two decorative rules and an elegant undulating floral vine, flat straight-grain morocco spines very handsomely gilt in compartments with pointillé ground and central circlet from which radiate four lilies and four leaves on twining stems, turn-ins gilt with plain and decorative rolls, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. With engraved head- and tailpieces and eight engraved portraits. Verso of front free endpaper with armorial bookplate of Baron de Mackau (see below); title page with ink ownership inscription (of Alexander Paul Ludwig Goupy?) in a contemporary hand. Brunet II, 822; Graesse II, 428; Lowndes IV, 1374. Isolated gatherings with variable browning (a small handful rather browned), one leaf in first volume with inexpert early repair of four-inch tear (letters of four words partly obscured or displaced, and the text and facing page somewhat discolored), a few additional trivial imperfections internally, but the text generally quite fresh and clean. One joint with five small wormholes, a few (hardly noticeable) shallow scratches to covers, a hint of wear to extremities, but THE LOVELY BINDINGS IN FINE CONDITION, with lustrous leather and gilt, with only minor wear, and with their very considerable original visual appeal entirely intact. This history of "England's Revolutions" begins with the invasion of the Saxons and covers the struggles for the throne of England through the Plantagenets, Tudors, and Stuarts up to the Restoration and the reign of James II. The learned Jesuit historian Pierre Joseph d'Orléans (1641-98) was described by Voltaire as the first historian to specialize in revolutions--he was also the author of a history of revolutions in Spain, an account of the Tartar conquerors of China, and a subsequent study of the English Civil War, covering the years 1603-90 in depth. The present work was favorably received on both sides of the Channel: the Earl of Chatham commended it in his letters, and du Fresnoy described it as a "history written with eloquence and judgment" and praised its equal treatment of Catholics and Protestants. When the present set appeared in a George Bayntun catalogue, the bindings were described as "very handsome" and "almost identical to the set of Bertrand De Moleville's 'Histoire de la Révolution de France,' 1801-1803 bound by Bozerian" and also from the library of Baron de Mackau, (1832-1918), a member of the Chamber of Deputies for 42 years and a Chevalier of the Legion of Honor. The volumes are unusual in their combination of calf boards with contrasting morocco spines, and their gilt decoration is particularly lovely. François Bozerian, generally called "Bozerian Jeune," was active in Paris from the turn of the 19th century until 1818, and for much of that time, he worked with his elder brother Jean-Claude. The Bozerian binderies produced many fine books, praised today especially for their technical achievement and elegance of design. The first edition of this work is surprisingly rare: only nine copies appear in OCLC, and ABPC records no copy at auction since at least 1975.

        TRUTH BROUGHT TO LIGHT: or The gross forgeries of Dr. Hollingworth, in his pamphlet intituled, The character of King Charles the First, from the declaration of Mr. Alexander Henderson, &c. detected. Being a vindication of Mr. Henderson and

      London, printed in the year 1693.. Dr. Walker, from the Aldgate chaplain’s vile scandals. To which is annex’d, a manifest proof that Dr. Gauden (not King Charles I.) was the author of Icon basilice (Eikon Basilike), by a late happy discovery of his original papers upon that occasion. In a letter from Lieut. General Ludlow to Dr. Hollingworth. FIRST EDITION 1693, no printer or publisher named. Small slim 4to, 190 x 135 mm, 7½ x 5¼ inches, 40 pages, bound in full vellum over boards, single rule gilt border to covers, gilt rules to spine, gilt lettered morocco label. Covers slightly bowed and slightly spotted, armorial bookplate on front pastedown of Bulkeley Bandinel, celebrated librarian of the Bodleian (1781-1861), on the front endpaper is the signature of Henry H. Gibbs, later Lord Aldenham (d. 1907) and on the rear pastedown is Lord Aldenham's armorial bookplate, light brown damp staining throughout, to margins and in places to text, all easily legible. Binding tight and firm. A good working copy of a rare book. Ludlow's name printed on page 34 with the date: October 1. 1692. This is the work of a republican pamphleteer who wrote under the name of General Ludlow, or Edmund Ludlow, lieut.-general. It concerns the controversy over the authorship of ’Eikon basilike’, which Richard Hollingworth believed was the work of Charles I, whilst the author of this tract, amongst others, believed it to be the work of John Gauden. Madan, in his ’New bibliography of the Eikon basilike’, states that it was in fact written by John Gauden, although it probably includes some authentic writings of the King (No. 173, page 143 in the Appendix on The Authorship Controversy).

        [Psyches et Amoris nuptiae fabula a Raphaele Sanctio Urbinate Romae in Farnesianis hortis Transtyberim ad veterum aemulationem ac laudem colorum luminibus expressa a... Dorigny... delineata et incisa, et a Ioanne Petro Belloriio notis illustrata]

      Rome: Domenico de' Rossi, 1693 [or later]. Large folio. 10 hand-coloured engraved plates by Dorigny on laid paper (each 15 7/8 x 26 inches approximately), titles and imprints printed in gold, black ink-ruled borders, each plate cut to the edge of the image, mounted on large sheets of contemporary thick laid paper (each 29 3/8 x 40 3/8 inches approximately). Unbound. A very fine suite of richly hand-coloured plates offering a stunning visual record of one of the best of the decorative interior schemes carried out by Raphael in Rome. This wonderful series records Raphael's 'Cupid and Psyche' series of frescoes, carried out by him between 1516 and 1518 in the Loggia of Psyche in the villa Farnesina in Rome. The series also comes with a title and an eleventh plate of the ceiling fresco in the adjoining Sala di Galatea, executed in 1512: neither the plate nor the title are present here. Originally published by the Rossis, the engravings are the work of Nicolas Dorigny (1658-1746) who lived and worked in Rome between about 1690 and 1719. The painter, classicist, and art historian Giovanni Pietro Bellori (1613-1696) provided the text at the foot of the plates (appropriate excerpts from Apuleuis's Golden Ass). "Raphael Invenit: Stampe da Rafaello" (1985) Dorigny 37-46; cf. Brunet IV, 1111; cf. Berlin Kat 4066
