        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.'"

It was the first substantial reference book to be published in England with women as its principal target audience, and was arguably the first alphabetically-arranged encyclopaedia to be published in English.

        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.

        The True Effigies of the Most Eminent Painters,

Together with an Account of the Time when they Lived, the most remarkable passages of their Lives, and most considerable Works. Very useful for all such Gentlemen as are Lovers of Art and Ingenuity. Folio (313 × 195 mm). Contemporary calf, gilt spine. Engraved title dated 1705, letterpress title dated 1694, 18pp. text (biographies of painters), engraved French title dated 1649, and 124 engraved portraits. Bookplate of John Besemeres to front pastedown. Some skilful restoration to the binding, red morocco label supplied to style, a few minor marks internally, chiefly marginal, a very good copy. An interesting collection of engraved portraits of artists (including Breughel, Durer, Holbein, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Rubens, Titian, Van Dyck, and Van Eyck) with English title and text, taken from a Dutch work entitled Het gulden cabinet van de edele vry schilder const (1662), itself a portmanteau of two earlier French works. The English letterpress title here is dated 1694 but in this issue is preceded by an additional engraved title, with the imprint London: Printed for D. Brown, & T. Brown, 1705. ESTC describes the 1694 edition as being in two parts, with two divisional engraved title pages and a total of 121 portraits. This 1705 reissue seems to combine the two sequences, while retaining only one engraved title page (which reads: Image de divers hommes d'esprit. Anvers Mis en lumier par Iean Meyssens, 1649). The English engraved title calls for only 123 portraits. The final supernumerary plate is not strictly a portrait, but a personification of Rome. ESTC attributes the text to Sebastiano Resta (1635?-1714). The engravers include T. Gallaeus and J. Mijtens.

        Belgii Novi, Angliae Novae, et Partis Virginiae Novissima Delineatio.

      Amsterdam: Amsterdam:Pieter Schenk and Gerald Valk, [after 1694]. - Single sheet (21 x 24 2/8 inches). Exceptionally fine double-page engraved map of New England, including Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Maine, New York, New Jersey, Maryland and part of Virginiawith magnificent hand-colour, the scale, dedication and title each within elaborate rococo cartouches along the bottom edge, the land decorated with images of native American villages and wild animals, the ocean with war canoe (old vertical fold a little browned in the crease, remains of guard on verso). The third state, with the Valk and Schenk imprint, with the added dedication to Gualthero de Raet with his coat of arms and the imprint of Valk and Schenk, first published by Jansson in 1650, and one of the fundamental prototype maps of New England, the then most important part of colonial America, of the 17th-century. Initially compiled from numerous manuscript and printed sources, the map follows the general outline of Adriaen Block's chart of 1614 with the St. Lawrence River and Lake Champlain based on Champlain. Many European settlements are depicted with several English settlements appearing for the first time. Jansson's primary concern was "to produce a detailed and informative map of the Dutch province of New Netherland and the surrounding region. The result is a valuable historical source and as evocative a picture as any we have of North America between Jamestown and Quebec. Besides these two towns, the settlements on the Delawre (Zuydt), Hudson and Connecticut Rivers, those in the vicinity of Manhattan and Long Island and those along the Massachsetts coast; besides the imperfectly mapped coastline and the conjectured course of rivers lay an almost unknown continent. Indians surrounded them and from the numerous native names on the map one can almost feel the pressure keeping the settlers back. "At the time this map was made the Swedish control of the Delaware River was passing to the Dutch. In 1638 a Swedish expedition had come out, established the province of New Sweden and built Fort Christina in honour of their queen. The names shown along the Delaware River on all the maps in this series refer to the forts and settlements that were set up by the numerous expeditions that followed. Often the settlers were farmers but many of them were pressed men, offered this as an alternative to prison" (Campbell "The Jansson-Visscher Maps of New England" in Tooley's "The Mapping of America", page 279). As the colonisation of New England progressed new issues of the map were published, "many of the more important events are reflected on the maps and may themselves have provided stimulus for re-publication. The capture of Fort Kasimier by the Dutch in 1655 caused the city of Amserdam to found the colony of New Amstel under its protecting walls and it seems likely that four separate copies of the prototype map were made in response to the sudden interest in the region. The English capture of New York in 1664, followed by the surrender of New Netherland and the Dutch settlements on the Delaware River are recorded in the English maps in the series, Speed and Seller, and the Ogilby-Montanus" (Campbell, page 280). The creation of New Jersey and Philadelphia are all reflected in later issues of the map. Burden #305; Fite & Freeman pp. 146-8; Tooley (Amer) p. 284, plate #146.

        REFLECTIONS UPON ANCIENT AND MODERN LEARNING. By William Wotton, B.D. Chaplain to the Right Honourable the Earl of Nottingham

      London: Printed by J. Leake, for Peter Buck 1st edition, 1694. Hardcover. Good. Lord Chancellor Eldon's copy. Octavo panelled leather with corner stylized florettes (spine repaired with old leather laid on, leather loss to one florette, tips worn). Titlepage +[30]pp prelims +359pp. Front free endpaper inscribed "J. Scott e Coll: Univ. Oxon" with his later circular bookplate as Lord Chancellor & Earl of Eldon (1751-1838). Endpapers and first and last two leaves foxed. Some small worm holes to margins but nowhere near text. Printed shoulder and marginal notes and one page with underlining and Scott's MS marginal notes on Descartes. Otherwise a clean crisp copy of an interesting study of poetry, art, but mainly maths, science including alchemy and a chapter on the circulation of the blood taken from Greek and Latin authors and Egyptian, Arabian and Chinese. *The future Lord Chancellor was at University College from 1766 to the early 1770's but on his elopement and marriage he had to give up his Oxford fellowship and studied law. His successful rise through the legal ranks led to his appointment as Lord Chancellor in 1801 a post which he held far too long, more than 20 years.

The Hague: Henri van Bulderen, 1694-1698. |~||~||~||~||~| Second, Enlarged Edition of the description of a voyage to Italy made by the author in 1687-88, which served for fifty years as an essential European guide book to the Grand Tour. This copy was handsomely bound for a Sicilian noble. Volume III is not called for in the 1694-98 publication; it has been taken from the third edition and uniformly bound with our set. François-Maximilien Misson (ca. 1650-1722), a Protestant from Lyon, was forced to seek refuge with his family in England upon the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685. His father became a minister within the Huguenot community of London, and Misson found employment as tutor to Charles Butler, later Earl of Arran. It was with his pupil that Misson undertook the Grand Tour of which he gave an account in this book. The two traveled to Italy via Rotterdam, Cologne, Munich, and Innsbruck, crossing the Brenner Pass, then to Verona and Venice, visiting points of interest in and near Naples, making a long visit to Rome, and returning via Bologna, Milan, Genoa, Turin, Geneva, Strasbourg, and Brussels. His work, in the form of a series of letters, describes every locale visited and is "resoundingly modern" in tone, containing an orderly account of "first-hand factual observations… augmented by the critical perspective of a protestant travelling through a Catholic country" (Oxford DNB). First published in 1691, translated into English in 1695, the work was hugely popular and was frequently reprinted with additions and enlargements. The fine engraved plates show detailed and accurate views of the principal sites from the major Italian and other European cities, monuments, objects, animals and plants of local interest, and regional costumes. This special copy is enlarged with the third volume of the following edition, containing a "Memoire" for prospective tourists with sections on France, Flanders, and Vesuvius, an alphabetical index of cities; a guide to the principal fairs and markets in various European cities; and lists of most important luxury goods found in various Italian cities, with a blank folding plate for the reader's own additions. Small tear to lower blank corner of frontispiece, tears to three plates in vol. I, occasional minor small stains, slight wear at joints and extremities of spines. Still a very fine set in a wonderful, near-contemporary French morocco binding. PROVENANCE: Lorenzo Marziani, supra-libros; Pastoret, 19th-century armorial bookplate; Dr. Desnos, 20th-century bookplate; Giannalisa Feltrinelli, bookplate and blind-stamps (sale, Part VII, Christie's Paris, 11 December 2001, lot 2014). Rossetti 7093 (describing 38 plates in vol. I but stating that "the number of plates may vary from copy to copy") and 7094. Borroni, Bibliografia dell archeologia classica (Florence 1962), 3125/1.

        Arlequiniana ou les bons mots, les histoires plaisantes & agréables

      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. chez Florenti et Pierre Delaulne. A Paris 1694 pet. in 12 (8,5x13,8cm) (58) 354 pp (12). Un Vol. relié

        Las tarascas de Madrid, y tribunal espantoso. Passos del hombre perdido, y relacion del espiritu malo

      New edition after the original edition of 1665 Rare. Parchment full period. Smooth spine with title pen. Freckles scattered. Spanish prolific writer, Francisco Santos (1618-1696), who was his military state, is famous for his novels and short stories in which picaresque drew plenty Lesage for Gil Blas and his lame Devil. He defends the poor against the rich, and the humble against the wealthy, typical attitude of the picaresque novel, and reflects the Madrid and Spanish society. Most of the works of Santos are full of moral Christian and Catholic, and that spirit has led to this book, which departs from the strict domain of literature, the author is the defending champion of the Christian and Catholic doctrine. There are very interesting details about witches and customs of Madrid. Por Francisco Antonio de Burgos En Valencia 1694 Pet. in 8 (10,5x16,3cm)) (32) 317pp. (3) relié
