Le "Traité des episcoloïdes, & de leur usage dans les mathématiques", traité de mécanique dans lequel il démontre l'efficacité de la roue cycloïdale. - 2. Le traité sur le thermomètre, "Explication des principaux effets de la glace & du froid", qui montre l'intérêt de l'auteur pour les questions de météorologie, en relation avec son travail à l'Observatoire de Paris. - 3. La "Dissertation des différences des sons de la corde et de la trompette marine" qui se penche sur les questions d’acoustique. - 4.

Philippe de La Hire fut nommé à la chaire de mathématiques du Collège de France en 1682 ; il y enseigna à la fois les mathématiques, l'astronomie, l'hydrostatique et la navigation ; le présent recueil témoigne des intérêts multiples de celui qui fut, dans la seconde moitié du XVIIe siècle, l'un des principaux animateurs de la vie scientifique française.

      Venice: 1694 Fourth edition. First published in 1687. Two editions were published in 1688. A German edition appeared in 1692, and an English edition in 1695. Contemporary limp vellum with yapp edges, soiled and discolored. Small quarto. Double-page engraved map of Asia Minor and the Near East, extending to Persia and Afghanistan. Front hinge loose with a few chips to front pastedown near gutter. Some worming in the gutter of first two gatherings. Otherwise a very good, crisp copy. Giovanni Tommaso Minadoi (1549-1615) was an Italian physician and historian who studied at the University of Padua. He practiced in Rovigo and Venice. In 1578 Teodoro Balbi, the newly elected Consul in Syria, offered him the opportunity to travel with him to Aleppo as his personal physician. In Syria he gathered materials to write his account of the war between Sultan Murad III and Mohammad Hodabanda the Blind. He returned to Venice in 1583, but went back to Syria in 1584, remaining there for two years, during which he also spent time in Constantinople. He married Lucia Cezza di Bartolomeo in 1587, a member of one of the richest families in Rovigo. He was a colleague of Galileo Galilei, who described him as jovial, pleasant and honest. (See Viquipèdia, the Catalan-language version of Wikipedia). This history is well regarded as a first hand account of the war against Persia between 1578 and 1590. Although Turkey made and retained conquests in Georgia and Azerbaijan, her own historians have criticized her for weakening not only Turkey but also Persia and Daghestan, which facilitated Russia's future expansion at their expense. The engraved map is prized for being especially detailed and accurate. All early editions are scarce.

The book gives thorough review of the most famous earlier authors on perspective, including the founder of the genre Hans Vredeman de Vries. "The book provides a series of neatly conceived demonstrations of perspective in its abstract and applied forms and gives an original if brief analysis of the upwards convergence of tall verticals to a 'contre-poinct' when viewed with a plane tilted slightly toward the spectator" (Kemp, p. 112). The Bosboom lacks 1 text leaf, but both works are otherwise in good condition, with some mostly marginal stains and some marginal restorations. The binding has been rebacked, with the original backstrip laid down. Two 17th-century classics on architecture and perspective..

Clean English text throughout ending with an advertisement (Rabbi Moses...) on p. 304. Rear free endpaper with numerous pencil references relating to this book. Referenced by: Wing F2064; Westwood & Satchell, p.100-101. * "Richard Franck (1624?-1708) was a captain in the parliamentary army and author. Franck was born and educated at Cambridge. Franck left England for a tour in Scotland around 1656 or 1657. He returned to Nottingham, where he seems to have lived for many years. About 1690 he went to New England, where his second book was written, and in 1694 was in London at the Barbican. The book Northern Memoirs for which Franck is known is a specimen of euphuistic literature, and includes the quote: "Art imitates Nature, and Necessity is the Mother of Invention." After much front matter, it is in the form of a dialogue between Theophanes, Agrippa (a servant), Aquila (a friend), and himself, under the name Arnoldus. 'Northern Memoirs' was written in 1658, put together in 1685, but not published until 1694. Its main interest centres in the places which Franck visited in Scotland, and the account of them which he gives. His route was by Carlisle and Dumfries to Glasgow; thence to Stirling, Perth, Forfar, and Loch Ness; then Sutherlandshireand Caithness, Cromarty, Aberdeen, Dundee, St. Andrews, Edinburgh, and Berwick. He made his way home by Morpeth. Franck was the first to describe salmon fishing in Scotland, and both in that and trout-fishing with artificial fly he was a practical angler. He had read the Compleat Angler; he tells us that he had argued with Isaak Walton about pickerel weed breeding pike. He is the first angler to name the burbot, and commends the salmon of the River Thames. Franck's second book was 'A Philosophical Treatise of the Original and Production of Things. Writ in America in a time of solitude,' London, 1687. The running head title of the work is 'Rabbi Moses.' It is written in the same high-flown language as Northern Memoirs. Franck may also have written 'The Admirable and Indefatigable Adventures of the Nine Pious Pilgrims ... to the New Jerusalem. Written in America in a time of Solitude and Divine Contemplation. By a Zealous Lover of Truth . . .' London (Morphew), 1708. The introductory matter is signed 'Philanthropes' as in Franck's other books." - See Wikipedia . ** The full title reads: 'Northern Memoirs, calculated for the Meridian of Scotland. Wherein most or all of the Cities, Citadels, Sea-ports, Castles, Forts, Fortresses, Rivers, and Rivulets are compendiously described. Together with choice Collections of various Discoveries, Remarkable Observations, Theological Notions, Political Axioms, National Intrigues, Polemick Inferences, Contemplations, Speculations, and several curious and industrious Inspections, lineally drawn from. Antiquaries and other noted and intelligible Persons of Honour and Eminency. To which is added the Contemplative and Practical Angler by way of Diversion,' with more of the same character. 'By Richard Franck, Philanthropus. Plures necat Gula quam Gladius, 1694.' .

        AN ACT DECLARING THE RIGHTS AND LIBERTIES OF THE SUBJECT, AND SETTLING THE SUCCESSION OF THE CROWN. [Contained in:] [BOUND VOLUMES OF 106 PARLIAMENTARY ACTS]

      London, 1694. Folio. Contemporary paneled calf. Slight wear to corners and hinges. Scattered light toning and soiling. Contemporary notations to some Acts. With the bookplate of Charles Bill. A handsome set. A set of three volumes containing 106 Parliamentary Acts, covering the early portion of the reign of William and Mary, including the first printing of the English Bill of Rights, passed by Parliament in December 1689. The English Bill of Rights was the culmination of the coup d'état known as the Glorious Revolution, in which James II was deposed and William of Orange and his wife Mary (daughter of James II) were brought in to replace him. James II, a Catholic monarch, fathered a legitimate son in 1688, creating the possibility of a Catholic succession in Protestant England. James II had already ruffled quite a few feathers by trying to reestablish Catholicism, displacing Anglicanism as the only official church in England; he was also considered to be too pro- French and was highly autocratic. The leading Whig noblemen, joined by a few key members of the Tory party, called on William of Orange to lead an army from the Netherlands to claim the throne. James II fled England in December 1688, leaving the Protestant William and Mary to rule the kingdom jointly. The new monarchs came to power accepting the principle of a constitutional monarchy, a fundamental evolution in English government that greatly decreased the power of the throne and opened the door for the modern parliamentary system. A wave of legislation formally embodied the principles of the so called "Glorious Revolution" of 1688. Foremost among this legislation was the English Bill of Rights, actually entitled an "Act Declaring the Rights and Liberties of the Subject...." It provides for several immutable political and civil rights, including the freedom from unilateral royal interference with the law, including the imposition of new taxes; freedom to petition the monarch; freedom of election of Parliamentary members, and freedom for those members to speak out freely and without reprisals while in Parliament; freedom for Protestants to bear arms; and freedom from a standing army in times of peace, requiring Parliament's consent to convene the army. It also specifically overturns several of the Acts passed by James II as unlawful and unjust. Not only did the English Bill of Rights add to the rights set forth in the Magna Charta, it also established very clearly the order of succession to the reign of William and Mary. The throne would go to any of Mary's heirs or issue, thence to her sister Anne of Denmark, and finally to any of William's heirs by later marriages. It also specifically barred a Catholic from the throne, stating: "Whereas it hath been found by experience, that it is inconsistent with the safety and welfare of this Protestant kingdom, to be governed by a Popish Prince, or by any King or Queen marrying a Papist...it may be enacted that all and every person and persons that is, are, or shall be reconciled to, or shall hold communion with the See or Church of Rome, or shall profess the Popish religion, or shall marry a Papist, shall be excluded, and be for ever uncapable to inherit, possess, or enjoy the Crown and government of this realm...." The monarch was also now required to swear an oath to uphold the Protestant religion. The enactment of this new set of laws was the beginning of modern-day British Parliamentary government, moving power out of the hands of the monarch and into that of Parliament and a ministerial system. The English Bill of Rights also served as a model for the founding documents of both the United States and Canada. Some of the other Acts in the sammelband which lead up to the passing of the Bill of Rights are of particular note, and also key pieces of legislation in establishing the new relationship of the Crown, the Parliament, and the people: "An Act for the Abrogating of the Oaths of Supremacy and Allegiance, and Appointing Other Oaths." April 4, 1689. This Act negates legal loyalties to the previous sovereign, swearing fealty to the current rulers, William and Mary, and also swearing to "abhor, detest, and abjure as impious and heretical" the position that persons excommunicated or otherwise condemned by the Pope may be murdered by their subjects with impunity. "An Act for Establishing the Coronation Oath." April 9, 1689. A new coronation oath was needed in order to remove the absolute power from the hands of the monarchy. Under the new oath, the monarch swears "to govern the people of this kingdom of England, and the dominions thereto belonging, according to the statutes in Parliament agreed on, and the laws and customs of the same." Under this new oath, the monarchy was answerable to and bound by the laws passed by Parliament, rather than having free license to act on any tyrannical whim which may occur. "An Act for the Better Securing the Government by Disarming Papists and Reputed Papists." May 11, 1689. An Act mandating the disarming of anyone subscribing to the Roman Catholic faith, removing from their possession "any Arms, Weapons, Gunpowder or Ammunition." The other Acts present here cover a wide range of subjects. Some repeal previous Acts passed by James II, while others govern trade or the military. Others deal with the complete cessation of trade with France and impending conflict with that nation. At least half a dozen acts deal with the taxation on wine, beer, or spirits, and some with the taxation of tobacco. Overall, an illustrious collection of English laws, including the foundational document of British and American government.

      London, 1694. Small quarto. Early 20th-century three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt. Extremities lightly rubbed. Minor soiling and wear to text. Very good. A major rarity of 17th-century Philadelphia and New Jersey, this pamphlet relates details of the schism amongst the Quakers caused by George Keith. Keith (1639?- 1716) was an early and important convert to Quakerism, but then began an attempt to reform Quaker theology in the early 1690s during an extended sojourn in America. This sparked a famous controversy in Philadelphia, which fueled some of the earliest productions of the press in Philadelphia and New York, and led to the first trial of freedom of the press in America, decades before Zenger. Disowned by the Friends on both sides of the Atlantic, Keith returned to England and entered the Anglican church in 1700, later returning to America as an Anglican missionary. "Whether it was a long-brewing dispute or a short-term conflict is debated, but at the yearly meeting of Quakers in Philadelphia in 1691 a row occurred that caused much acrimony between Keith and his Quaker brethren. William Stockdale, one of the early Quaker settlers, accused Keith of heresy, of preaching two Christs because he overemphasized the two separate natures of the Saviour" - DNB. Tensions and events escalated in 1692 and 1693, fueled by Keith's published attacks, printed by Philadelphia's first printer, William Bradford. Keith and Bradford were then tried for sedition, but the case against them collapsed when the evidence - Bradford's set type of an inflammatory broadside - was dropped by a juror. Keith and Bradford then moved to New York, where the former wrote and the latter printed a summation of the whole business, TRUTH ADVANCED IN THE CORRECTION AND MANY GROSS AND HURTFUL ERRORS, the first book published in New York. In the present work, the author condemns the schism as detrimental to the Quaker faith as a whole, and he urges Keith to do everything in his power to smooth things over. The text includes a missive from the Yearly Meeting at Burlington, New Jersey, addressed to "Our Friends and Brethren in Truth, both in Pennsylvania, East and West-Jarsey, and elsewhere, as there may be occasion, to be read in their Monthly and Quarterly Meetings, as they in the Wisdom of God shall see meet." The letter exonerates Keith from charges leveled against him and is signed in type by thirty-nine members of the Meeting. The present work is of the greatest rarity. We can locate copies at the Huntington Library, Library of Congress, New York Public Library (imperfect), and the British and Bodleian libraries in England. This would appear to be the only copy in private hands.

        Plattegrond van Rotterdam.

      1694. "[NL] Grote, zeer gedetailleerde kaart die op naam staat van J. de Vou. In cartouche rechtsboven: ""Rotterdam met al syn gebouwen ... Ao 1694 door Joannes de Vou"". Na de succesvolle plattegrond van Haarlem uit 1688/89 kreeg De Hooghe op 25 september 1690 opdracht van burgemeesteren van Rotterdam voor een Rotterdams equivalent. Het resultaat viel echter tegen, want op 11 januari 1692 schreven burgemeesteren aan De Hooghe niet tevreden te zijn. De kaart was ""met menigvuldig vauten vervult en schijnt meerder naer oude kaerten getrocken, dan naer de ware geschapenheyt van onse stad te gelijken"". Na verbeteringen kwam de kaart in 1694 gereed. De Hooghe kreeg er ruim tweeduizend gulden voor betaald. Uit een advertentie van 1696 blijkt dat De Vou de kaart had getekend en dat De Hooghe haar ""in 't koper"" bracht.De Vou kreeg slechts honderd gulden betaald voor zijn aandeel. Evenals de kaart van Haarlem is er een uitgebreid randwerk (bij ons exemplaar niet aanwezig) dat o.a. bestaat uit een groot panorama op de stad, twaalf stadsgezichten en een groot aantal familiewapens.

        Fables of Æsop and Other Eminent Mythologists with Morals and Reflections

      London: Printed for R. Sare, B. Took, M. Gillyflower, A. & J. Churchil, J. Hindmarsh, and G. Sawbridge, 1694 Illustrated with two engraved plates, including the frontispiece. Second edition. Bound in full contemporary dark brown calf, with five raised bands to the spine, with a contrasting red title label lettered in gilt to the spine, flower and vine decorations to the spine compartments in gilt, petit-faire composition (small tools stamped to look like one large tool) to the boards in blind. Very good, with some light wear to the extremities, spine rebacked with the original calf laid on, some discreet repairs to the corners, some scratches and minor soiling to the boards, former owner's bookplate to the front pastedown, light toning to the page edges, closed tear to page 111/112, margin slightly trimmed on page 53/54, pencil drawing and a closed tear to the rear free endpaper, some light rippling and a few faint spots to the otherwise clean pages, spine lightly starting inside the rear cover, otherwise tight and intact binding. Overall, a sturdy and presentable copy in a contemporary binding. Fables of Æsop and Other Eminent Mythologists with Morals and Reflections is a collection of Aesop's fables, including many of his best-known tales, such as "A Boy and False Alarms" (The Boy Who Cried Wolf), "A Lion and a Mouse," and "A Hare and a Tortoise." After John Locke suggested the fables' morals be used for instructing children, Roger L'Estrange was commissioned to create this collection, which was first published in 1692. In addition to Aesop's fables, it includes reflections on the morals, the prefatory biographical essay "The Life of Æsop," and fables by Barlandus, Anianus, Abstemius, and Poggius, among other fabulists. Notably, the text is illustrated with a portrait frontispiece of L'Estrange and an engraved illustration of Aesop reading his verse aloud to an audience of animals.. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        Al-Coranus s. lex islamitica Muhammedis, filii Abdallae pseudoprophetae [...].

      Hamburg, Gottfried Schultze & Benjamin Schiller, 1694.. 4to. (88), 560, (10) pp. Latin title printed in red and black; Arabic (woodcut) and Latin half-titles. Preface in Latin, text in vocalized Arabic throughout. Contemp. vellum with faded ms. spine.. The famous "Hamburg Koran": while not actually (as it was long considered) the first printed Qur'an ever, the first accessible printed edition of the Arabic text. Only in 1987 was a unique copy of Paganino de Paganinis's Venetian edition (c. 1538) rediscovered, a work whose press run either was destroyed immediately or was limited to the sole surviving specimen, apparently a proof copy (cf. A. Nuovo, "Il Corano arabo ritrovato", in: Bibliofilia LXXX, IX, 1987). Four years after the present edition, in 1698, Lodovico Marracci produced his own Qur'an, but its two big tomes were anything but easy to consult - hence, the Hamburg Koran remained "the only available and handleable" (Smitskamp) edition until the early 19th century. - Abraham Hinckelmann (1652-95), a Hamburg theologian, studied at Wittenberg and collected many Oriental manuscripts. He compiled a Quranic lexicon in manuscript and planned a Latin translation of the Koran, but this was never realised. - Some browning throughout; occasional pencil and ink notes in the text and extensive notes on flyleaves by previous owners. This the the more common variant with only one woodcut Arabic title. - Provenance: from the library of the German theologian Georg Detharding (1727-1813; cf. ADB V, 79) with his ownership to front flyleaf and lower pastedown; acquired in Berlin in 1813 by the Swedish oriental scholar Petrus Sjöbring (1776-1842) (his ownership on inside of upper cover). - Schnurrer 376.

        A Journal or Historical Account of the Life, Travels, Sufferings, Christian Experiences and Labour of Love in the Work of the Ministry, of that Ancient, Eminent and Faithful Servant of Jesus Christ, George Fox; Who departed this Life in great Peace with the Lords, the 13th of the 11th Month, 1690. Folio, 20.5 x 32.2 x 7.9cm. First Edition of George Fox's Journal, London, 1694:

      London, Printed for Thomas Northcott, in George-Yard, in Lombard-Street. MDCXCIV. [1694]. - George Fox(1624-1691) founder of the Society of Friends. "Born in Leicestershire and apprenticed to a shoemaker, he apparently had no formal schooling. In 1643 he parted fromfamily and friends and traveled in search of enlightenment. After long painful struggles he came in 1646 to rely on the `Inner Light of the Living Christ.' He forsook church attendance, dismissed contemporary religious controversies as trivial, and in 1647 began to preach that truth is to be found in God's voice speaking to the soul- -hence, `Friends of Truth' later abbreviated to `Friends.' In 1649 he was jailed for interrupting a Nottingham church service with an impassioned appeal from the Scriptures to the Holy Spirit as the authority and guide. In 1650 at Derby he was imprisoned as a blasphemer, and there a judge nicknamed the `Quakers,' after Fox had exhorted the magistrates to 'tremble at the word of the Lord.' .Fox spent six years in different prisons, sometimes under terrible conditions. He campaigned against the latter and against other social evils. His famous journal was published posthumously in 1694."--Douglas: The New Int'l Dict. of the Christian Church, pp.383- 384. We offer the 1694 First Edition of his Journal, indispensable for the study of his life and the early days of the Quakers. Provenance, the following two inscriptions written on leaf A1 and bottom of p.632. 3rd inscription on leaf A1 only. Leaf A1 of Penn's Preface has the following in old pen: "Matthew [E]stes Book Bou[ght] of Thomas Northcott & George Yard, Lombard Street, London the 9th of 3rd Month 169[5] 24,-6 SIH." "Samuel Pope his Book Bougt of Hannah Estes of Salem(?) the 7th of ye 1c 1727/8 Cost 14£." "Descended Aln____ [missing words] [Po]pe y. 3 in a tight Line unto 1763." This is the true First Edition with the original printing of pages 309 and 441 to which corrections were made and substituted inmany copies. See Joseph Smith:A Descriptive Catalogue of Friends' Books, Vol. I, p.691. Bound full leather, sometime early on rebacked with a piece of leather pasted over spine--this eventually failed and sometime more recently rebacked in the same style in lighter leather and with the earlier rebacked spine strip laid over, leather on original boards worn through at all edges, heavily chipped, cracked & flaking, corners rounded down considerably as are the page edge corners, a strip of old cloth strengthens the inside hinges, lacks free endpapers and flyleaves, light to heavy foxing, damp stains scattered throughout. LACKING title but a facsimile sometime supplied on old paper, the next five leaves A-B2 & C1, have smaller outside margins--i.e. they are either from another copy or have had tattered edges trimmed off. They do have a similar water mark to the following pages.

        Arlequiniana ou les bons mots les histoires plaisantes & agréables EDITION ORIGINALE

      à Paris: chez Florenti et Pierre Delaulne., 1694. Fine. chez Florenti et Pierre Delaulne., à Paris 1694, pet. in 12 (8,5x13,8cm), (58) 354 pp (12)., relié. - First Edition? A similar edition was published on the same date by the same publisher, but in a slightly larger format, with a different snack, a flagship of different title and without title page red and black. This edition may be a counterfeit. A frontispiece representing Harlequin. Uncommon. Vellum half later. Smooth spine with respect to the red pen. Arlequiniana, which remains a literary curiosity, belongs to a prominent genre of French literature, born in the late seventeenth and flourishing in the first half of the eighteenth it comes to these collections of jokes or stories pleasant or Ana which can be entered with the birth in 1693 Menagiana This kind has the distinction of staging his own author and dialogue with the reader, it seems to have no other purpose than to entertain as it seeks to educate because in this age of censorship, literature created this seemingly light but satirical critique of society and manners mode. Charles Cotolondi wrote several books in this field, including Evremonmania. Harlequin, thanks to the famous theater of the Fair in Paris became very famous and was a kind, and it is deliberately Cotolondi actually a kind of wise fool, like a Scapin for Molière. The set is a series of conversations that combines stories and jokes. A table of strong caustic materials retrieves all subjects, death, Cardinal Mazarin, caution husbands or Mr. Lully. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale ? Une édition semblable est parue à la même date chez le même éditeur, mais dans un format un peu plus grand, avec une collation différente, un fleuron de titre différent et sans la page de titre rouge et noire. Cette édition est peut-être une contrefaçon. Un frontispice représentant Arlequin. Peu courant. Reliure en demi vélin postérieur. Dos lisse avec titre à la plume rouge. Arlequiniana, qui reste une curiosité littéraire, appartient à un genre prédominant de la littérature française, naissant à la fin du XVIIe et s'épanouissant dans la première moitié du XVIII, il s'agit de ces recueils de bons mots ou histoires plaisantes ou Ana dont on peut saisir la naissance avec le Menagiana en 1693. Ce genre a la particularité de mettre en scène son propre auteur et à dialoguer avec son lecteur, il semble n'avoir d'autre but que de divertir alors qu'il cherche à éduquer, car dans ce siècle de censure, la littérature créa ce mode apparemment léger mais satirique et critique de la société et des mœurs. Charles Cotolondi écrivit plusieurs ouvrages dans ce domaine, notamment le Evremonmania. Arlequin, grâce au fameux théâtre de la Foire à Paris était devenu très célèbre et représentait un type, et c'est à dessein que Cotolondi en fait une espèce de fou sage, à la manière d'un Scapin pour Molière. L'ensemble est une suite de conversations, où se mêlent les contes et les bons mots. Une table des matières fort caustique permet de retrouver tous les sujets traités, la mort, le cardinal Mazarin, la prudence des maris ou M. Lully.

        Schat-Boeck der Verclaringen den Nederlandschen Catechismus

      Amsterdam: C. Lootsman, 1694. Thick quarto, engraved title-page, water-stain affecting several leaves of text; very good in contemporary panelled dark calf with clasps, gilt VOC-M device at centre of front cover. A very rare example of a devotional book bound for use aboard a ship of the Dutch East India Company, or VOC, in the late seventeenth century. The 'M' in the device represents the Middelburg chamber of the company, and the book would have been used aboard one of their ships.Zacharias Ursinus (1534-1583) was a German Reformed theologian and long-time student at Wittenberg and Heidelberg. His Schatboek, of which this is a good example, was one of the most popular works of its kind, particularly in the Netherlands.John Landwehr gives a long account of the VOC's involvement with books and printing over a long period of time for a number of purposes - ranging from seafaring practical to religious - and as he notes "the chamber had its own arrangements... also with a bookbinder. The chamber provisioned its outbound ships... [and] also exported books to the East Indies, occasionally upon request of the VOC library in Batavia... and frequently to the overseas churches. All of these books were given bindings bearing the VOC-A monogram... The Zeeland chamber played second fiddle. It exported one book to every three of the Amsterdam chamber... However, books for the ship's chest and for chaplains must have been provisioned chiefly by the Amsterdam chamber because very few VOC-M bindings have turned up. And those which have turned up have almost all been copies of Ursinus' Schatboek. It is noteworthy that the letter M for Middelburg is used instead of Z for Zeeland. Normally the M is placed under the monogram...".Landwehr illustrates a number of VOC bindings, one of which (p. xxix, top right) is of the same design as ours although it is on vellum rather than calf: see VOC. A Bibliography... (Utrecht, 1993), pp. xxvii-xxx and passim.

[30], 1-403, [1], 1-92, 97-263, [1] pp. (Complete). 1 vols. Folio. The Cartesian World, Illustrated. First edition of an important Cartesian work, magnificently illustrated with full-page plates by Kep and van der Fucht. "Antoine Le Grand's most substantial work, An Entire Body of Philosophy According to the Principles Of the Famous Renate des Cartes (1694), is a Cartesian tract from beginning to end. It is based on a Latin text that underwent four editions before being translated into English by Richard Blome, and it includes corrections, alterations and additions by Le Grand himself. This work, as the title reveals, consists of three books. The first book, The Institution, is intended as a treatment of the general nature of things according to Descartes's principles; book two, The History of Nature, illustrates, by means of a great variety of reported experiments and examples, the operation of these first principles in nature. In this book, Le Grand applied the general Cartesian principles to his study of particular bodies and their qualities, showing how such principles can explain all natural phenomena. His extensive discussion includes bodies as various as the loadstone, plants, and insects. And finally, in his third book, A Dissertation of the Want of Sense and Knowledge in Brute Animals, he argued against the supposed link of life and sense from Plato onwards, and after offering a brief survey of various hypotheses on the nature of soul by Aristotle, Gassendi, Fabri, and Descartes, he adopted Descartes's view. In the Preface, Le Grand wrote that, ' ... this whole work contains nothing else, but his [Descartes's] opinions, or what may clearly and distinctly be deduced from them.'"

        The Satyr of Titus Petronius Arbiter, A Roman Knight, With its Fragments, recover'd at Belgrade.

      Samuel Briscoe, at the Corner of Charles Street, in Ruffel Street, Covent Garden, London 1694 - Full leather calf binding, spine repaired and the title has been re gilded. This ia an extremely rare work, and is a first edition. Title page has had to be reinforced with Japan paper. On the reverse is the signature of a previous owner in Latin - Georgio Moncriefi. Titus Petronius Arbiter - could be best described as the fashion adviser to the Roman Emperor Nero. The precise identity of the author is a bit uncertain, but he is generally agreed to have written this Latin work of Roman literature in the first century, during the reign of Nero. Claimed by some to be an early example of the novel, the work is a mixture of prose and poetry telling the adventures of Encolpius, an impoverished adventurer, and his boy-lover Giton. The fragmentary nature of the text makes the fluidity of the narrative problematic, perhaps the most complete and interesting section being the relatively intact ¿Dinner of Trimalchio¿ in which are satirized the nouveau riche pretensions of the emerging middle class, particularly of the freedmen who have been given or purchased their freedom from slavery. The rest of the novel, as we have it, is an endless succession of bawdy adventures that ramble with little apparent direction. Among all the satire, all the irony, there are long poetic passages of beauty in which Petronius comments, often sadly, on the Rome of his day, the loss of the Republic, and the fallen nature of society and the Empire of his time.
