        Amours des Dames IllustrŽs de Notre Sicle

      Cologne: Chez Jean le Blanc, 1694. Small 8vo, contemporary gilt-ruled full calf, backstrip gilt-lettered and decorated in gilt between five raised bands. (xii, xi-xii blank), 576 pp. Extra illustrated title-page and eight copper-engraved plates. backstrip tips worn; covers moderately rubbed; discreet gift inscription dated 1932 on front free endpaper; a sturdy copy, and very fresh within. Early edition of this compilation, which seems to have first appeared in 1680 in various editions, then in 1681 and 1685. There were several early 18th-century editions. It contains eleven narratives of the romantic and sexual activities of recent French royalty and nobility, the most important being the Histoire Amoureuse des Gaules, originally published in 1665 and written by Roger de Rabutin, Comte de Bussy (1618-1693) while in exile on his country estates as punishment for having taken part in an orgy of blasphemy and licentiousness during Holy Week, 1659. Bussy's rewards for his efforts included a year in the Bastille and another 17 years of exile from Paris. Other chapters listed in the "Tables des Intrigues Amoureuses Continu?'s en ce Livre" include "Le Palais Royal, ou les Amours de Madame de la Valiere," "Les Fausses Prudes, ou les Amours de Madame de Brancas, & autres Dames de la Cour," "Le Passe-Temps Royal, ou les Amours de Mademoiselle de Fontange." OCLC notes: ?'Prose and verse, mostly by Bussy de Rabutin. Some pieces are attributed to G. Sandras de Courtilz, some to C. Blessebois and others.?" The illustrated title-page depicts a triumphant Cupid, and the plates depict various loves of Louis XIV. The imprint of this work may be fictional. OCLC lists four copies of the 1680 edition, two copies of this 1694 edition (at the University of Michigan and UC Irvine), and scattered copies of editions from 1700, 1709, & 1737. Brunet, I, cols. 244-245. Graesse, I, p. 108. And see: Brunet, I, cols. 1422-1424, & Graesse, I, pp. 581-582.

[26], 248, [21]; 352, [28]; [18], 413 (i.e., 417), [21] pp. Illustrated with a total of 65 engraved plates of which 39 are folding, plus one folding letterpress plate. Titles printed in red and black with woodcut printer's device, a few small woodcut illustrations in-text, woodcut tail-pieces. Engraved armorial device at head of dedication to Charles Butler in volume I. Errata leaf at end. Ruled in red throughout. 12mo., 155 x 95 mm., uniformly bound in near-contemporary French dark blue morocco, sides with triple fillet border, vase and flower tools at corners, central gold-blocked arms of Lorenzo Marziani, Prince of Furnari in Sicily (Guigard II, 344), spine in six compartments richly gilt, second and third compartments lettered in gold, gilt edges. 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.

        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

Qualche piccolo rinfresco alla legatura; alcuni fascicoli bruniti (con aloni al margine superiore), qualche macchiolina di minima entità. Bell'esemplare, fresco e marginoso. Prima edizione, estremamente rara, di questa storia della casata lusitana dei Sousa, scritta a scopi celebrativi dal letterato, poeta (scrisse fra l'altro un "Herculeida", sulle imprese di Ercole) ed abate Sousa Moreira (Mogadouro, 1648-Lisbona, 1722), che ne discendeva. Il Sousa Moreira fu fra l'altro curato di Peso e poi abate di Castelo Branco e di Sambade, nonché membro dell'Academia Real de História di Lisbona. Nelle copie del volume censite in KVK in un esemplare nel COPAC britannico (così come in copie serbate nelle biblioteche di altre nazioni europee) le pp. preliminare sono indicate, come nel nostro, 15-986, mentre, in un'altra scheda catalografica di tale COPAC, la numerazione delle cc. preliminari è 15-48. Nel nostro esemplare l'ultima delle carte nn. preliminari di epistola dedicatoria è segnata AIII; la successiva carta, priva di segnatura, è numerata 15-16, mentre quella ancora successiva, numerata 16, reca la segnatura E. Tale discontinuità di segnatura, e l'avvio della numerazione dalla p. 15, sembrano indicare l'assenza di alcune carte testuali che, tuttavia, come evidenziato anche da numerose schede catalografiche, interessa la più parte degli esemplari di questa prima edizione.

In many respects, his proposal was similar to Chamberlen?s, and appeared around the same time in 1694. The bank was once again based on the future rental income that could be expected from land. Rather than 100 years income, however, Briscoe only used 20. Unsurprisingly, he was accused by Chamberlen of plagiarism (Horsfield, 1960: 180). Despite the fact that Horsfield describes Briscoe?s major contribution, A Discourse of the Late Funds, as "a lengthy and chaotic work" (1960: 181), it contains some modern theory that puts it ahead of any of Chamberlen?s writings. Briscoe believed that the new investment opportunities offered in the forms of the Million Act, the Lottery Act, and most importantly the Bank of England were drawing money out of trade and into the government?s accounts. In his opinion, his bank would allow trade to flourish and give the government the opportunity to borrow at a lower rate than they were able to from the Bank of England. The rate at which the government was borrowing money, he believed, would lead to the "ruin [of] the trade of the kingdom" (Briscoe, 1694: 3).As with Potter and Chamberlen, Briscoe made the link between an increase in the supply of money and greater economic activity. According to him, the new bills would be "to all intents as useful as money; it will be (as it were) an introducing so many fresh-monied men into the Kingdom with several millions more than was before, for the supply of their majesties" (1694: 7). Motivated by finding a means for the government to borrow at a low rate of interest, he was simultaneously concerned with improving the capital of the land owners: "gentlemen will have an opportunity of improving their estates by building, planting, draining or watering their land" (1694: 8). It is not until we get to Nicholas Barbon that the idea of capital is explored in greater detail, but there is an implied understanding of the link between investment and increased productivity here. Briscoe managed to secure over £100,000 in land subscribed to his bank, but it ultimately failed after 1696 as a consequence of a lack of liquidity in much the same way that Chamberlen?s did (1960: 194)"Antoin Murphy notes that "Briscoe?s proposals involved money creation and debt management. Law was to pursue both these policies in France between 1717 and 1720."

Per the DNB, Dawson "an English jurist, educated at St. John's College, Cambridge, where he graduated B.A. in 1658-9, M.A. in 1662, and was presented by his college to the vicarage of Sunninghill, Berkshire, where he died in 1700, aged 63." This his only known published work. Termed by some as 'ambitious, it have been described as "one of the most interesting, but now completely forgotten, treatises on natural law to be printed in late-seventeenth-century England. Despite its many qualities, the treatise was published, albeit very handsomely by Richard Chiswell, in a very limited edition... and it simply failed to reach the relevant audience", a circumstance which, no doubt, accounts for its scarcity in the modern antiquarian law market.

First edition of a treaty concluded between the Dutch States General and Abdullah bin Ismail (1694-1757), Sultan of Morocco on and off from 1734 to his death in 1757. The pamphlet is entirely in Dutch but the treaty itself was originally written in Spanish, to be translated into Arabic for posting in all Moroccan ports and published and posted (in Dutch) in lands under Dutch authority. The 23 articles of the treaty itself are followed by a form for the passports that Dutch ships were to carry, a note on the treaty's ratification at Fez, and a translation of a letter (originally in Arabic?) from the Sultan of Morocco to the States General. The treaty was negotiated by Mohamed Lucas, governor of Tétouan, acting for Morocco and Francisco and Louis Butler, granted power of attorney by the States General. With a few wrinkles and small marginal tears or chips, but still in very good condition and with generous margins, preserving the tranchefiles. First edition of an important document of trade relations between the Dutch Republic and Morocco.

        ORIGO LEGUM: Or A Treatise on the Origin of Laws, and Their Obliging Power: as Also of Their Great Variety and Why Some Laws are Immutable, and Some not; but May Suffer Change, or Cease to be, or be Suspended, or Abrogated. In Seven Books

      London:: Printed for Richard Chiswell,. 1694.. Folio. ¹^4 a - b^4 c^2 A - X^4; 2^A - 2D^4 2E^2. 32.5 cm x 20.5 cm. 1st edition (Lowndes, p. 604; Marvin, p. 257; Wing D-459). [28], 168, T.p. printed in red & black. Printed glosses. "Chap. X" begins new pagination & register, though text continuous.. Early full brown calf, with a modern respining to style. Dark maroon gilt-lettered leather title label to spine second compartment.. Stain to text-block lower corner gradually diminishing, with minor. worming, primarily in the stained portion, affecting margins only.. Lower outer margins of first few leaves neatly restored. Some other. odd soiling, nothing obtrusive. A solid VG copy of an uncommon title.. Per the DNB, Dawson "an English jurist, educated at St. John's College, Cambridge, where he graduated B.A. in 1658-9, M.A. in 1662, and was presented by his college to the vicarage of Sunninghill, Berkshire, where he died in 1700, aged 63." This his only known published work. Termed by some as 'ambitious, it have been described as "one of the most interesting, but now completely forgotten, treatises on natural law to be printed in late-seventeenth-century England. Despite its many qualities, the treatise was published, albeit very handsomely by Richard Chiswell, in a very limited edition... and it simply failed to reach the relevant audience", a circumstance which, no doubt, accounts for its scarcity in the modern antiquarian law market.

James. Found in the Strong Box.Printed in the Year MDCXCIV." Owner notes on loose browned paper, "Port, 12mo, old calf, (London) 1694. Nice copy of this scarce work. The famous portrait of King Charles knelling (sic, kneeling), of which it is said 'he is worshipping his Mistress Nellie Gwynn in a cloud above him, instead of his maker.' " There is ancient penned 1/2 page note top verso first endsheet re authorship (attributes Chas. II) and avoiding confusion of this item with the Basilike of Charles I. Below this are penciled notes re Almack page 82, Wing #E312 and placements. Below title page date in R.N. is script penned '1694'. At top of TOC is very old penned name 'John Francis Gwyn'. Not sure I am reading the middle name correctly.Regarding structure, size is duodecimo, collation is octavo in the main. Spine has 4 ribs, stamped label, date at bottom in standard numerals. The archivist who has seen the piece feels the date indicates reworking as does the marbling of the pastedowns and their facing ensheets. First PD has had ex-libris plate removed and the abrasion is large and goes through the marbled paper.Numbers 320 pages and at the bottom of last page is 2 line errata note. The verso of first marbled endsheet is blank (exc. above refd. noting), second blank endsheet w/ verso showing the scandalous illustration, title page with verso blank then TOC. Page 320 is followed by one endsheet blank verso marbled. The text has one 'flaw' that I noted in scanning through, the last page of TOC is cut partially short at fore-edge, body of text unaffected, dog ear minimal. Text has the customary ripple and a bit of age darkening, very minimal foxing to my eye. Remarkably legible. Text edges have some red stain visible but darkened, top darker. The leather boards and spine are aged and scarred but richly attractive in their age. Hinging seems stout with no internal gap and no notable exterior cracking. The archivist feels any restoration is very old and utilized original materials where possible. Photo will be provided of the book's exterior shortly, Book

        A TRUE ACCOUNT OF THE PROCEEDINGS, SENCE AND ADVICE OF THE PEOPLE CALLED QUAKERS. AT THE YEARLY MEETINGS OF FAITHFUL FRIENDS AND BRETHREN BEGUN IN LONDON ON THE 28th OF THE 3d MONTH, 1694, AND HELD BY ADJOURNMENT UNTO THE 11th OF THE MONTH FOLLOWING, IN ORDER TO PUT AN END TO THE DIVISIONS AND DIFFERENCES AMONG SOME OF THE PEOPLE CALLED QUAKERS IN AMERICA

      London: R. Levis, 1694.. [4],16pp. 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. ESTC R12805. WING H656. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 694/80. SABIN 30235.
