Chronographus, Philo.
1693. Folio (305 x 190 mm). 2 parts in 1 volume. (4), 31, (1), 64 pp. With 12 (instead of 16) plates containing 24 copper engravings. Modern boards. Fascinating, little-received chronographical study focusing on the history of the Eastern Mediterranean and Asia Minor, then under Ottoman rule. The anonymous late 17th-century German author hides behind the name of "Philo Chronographus" and is evidently identical with the "Philo Cosmographus" who produced the similarly themed geographical work, "Trinum Marinum", which is announced on the title page and was often issued together with this, though produced by a different publisher and catalogued separately. The first part of the work contains a general introduction which relates the 24 hours of the day to the time from Creation to the year 1800 (which is conceived of as the end of the world, leaving another mere 107 years of history to come!). The second part features a chronicle of the "Rule of the Ottoman Porte", from Sultan Osman to Suleyman II. - Numerous pages of plates (each page containing two copper engravings) depict costumes, animals and plants, maps and views of towns (Sultan Osman, the Ottoman Residence and a view of Constantinople, dolphins and cranes, Turkish ladies in their various garments, a cypress and a mastix tree, etc.). - The number of plates, and indeed even the arrangement of engravings on a single page, varies from copy to copy, but this wants 4 plates as compared to the table of plates. Well-preserved. VD 17, 12:645730N. Weller, Pseud. 439.

This handbook of writs and procedure went through numerous editions into the mid-eighteenth century and was followed by three equally popular sequal volumes.

VALLEMONT (Pierre Le Lorrain abbé de);
A Paris chez Jean Anisson 1693 In-12 de (30)-609-(1) pp., vélin, pièce de titre (reliure du XIXe siècle). Edition originale rare. 14 gravures sur bois curieuses signées Pierre Le Sueur dont 11 à pleine page. « Lorsque parut ce livre, le public s'occupait beaucoup de la baguette divinatoire qu'un paysan de Saint-Véran, en Dauphiné, nommé Jacques Aymar, venait de mettre en vogue, en opérant par ce moyen des découvertes jugées merveilleuses dont il courut alors plusieurs relations » (Brunet). Technique de la baguette divinatoire, tableaux astronomiques pour son utilisation, mais aussi pages sur le tabac, le narguilé et la lanterne magique firent du traité de l'abbé de Vallemont un grand succès de nombreuses fois réimprimé. Petite biographie manuscrite de l'auteur à l'encre du temps en regard du titre. Traces de mouillures marginales. Brunet, V, 1060 ; Caillet, III, 10984 ; Dorbon, 5040 : « Originale rare particulièrement intéressante à cause de son illustration ».
