        Memoires de Mr L.C.D.R. contenant ce qui s'est passé sous le ministere du cardinal de Richelieu, et du cardinal de Mazarin

      A La Haye: Chez Henry Van Bulderen, 1694. relié. In 12 (9x16,5cm). Mention de cinquième édition après l'originale parue en 1687 chez Pierre Marteau. Oeuvre attribuée à Courtilz de Sandras par Barbier, Dict. des ouvrages anonymes. Reliure aux armes frappées à froid du baron Vireau des Espoisses, De gueules, à un senestrochère d'or, mouvant d'une nuée d'argent, tenant un badelaire d'argent, garni d'or.. Pleine Basane brune d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Un accroc avec manque au premier caisson. Un manque en tête au mors supérieur et un en queue, également au mors supérieur. 2 coins et une brodure externe dénudés. Dernier feuillet jauni. Les mémoires du Comte de Rochefort, ou les mémoires de D'Artagnan constituent les actes de naissance du roman historique, ou comment mêler adroitement fiction et faits historiques, ce que fera plus tard Alexandre Dumas, en s'inspirant lui-même des romans de Sandras pour composer Les trois mousquetaires. Les mémoires du Comte de Rochefort sont donc une oeuvre littéraire basé sur un cadre et des faits historiques. Ce type d'oeuvre poursuit la vague inaugurée par les courts romans de Madame de Lafayette et dont le XVIIe siècle fut si friand. La différence, c'est que l'histoire invoquée dans ce roman est quasi contemporaine de ses lecteurs, brouillant ainsi la frontière entre l'histoire et la fiction. - Chez Henry Van Bulderen, A La Haye _1694, In 12 (9x16,5cm), (8) 448pp., relié. - relié

        The Vanity of Arts and Sciences

      London: printed by R. Everingham for R. Bentley, and Dan. Brown,, 1694. By Henry Cornelius Agrippa, Knight, Doctor of both Laws, Judge of the Prerogative Court, and Counsellour to Charles the Fifth, Emperour of Germany. Octavo (183 × 110 mm). Eighteenth-century sprinkled sheep, double green morocco labels, red morocco date label at foot, sides with double blind rules, red sprinkled edges. Engraved portrait frontispiece. Early ownership inscription at head of title ("Strathnaver", courtesy title of the heir of the earl of Sutherland). Spine worn at head, joints starting at foot but holding firm, an excellent copy. Third edition of the second English translation of Agrippa's De incertitudine et vanitate scientiarum (Antwerp, 1530), first translated into English by James Sanford (1569, repr. 1575), succeeded by this new seventeenth-century translation in 1676, 1684, and 1694. A highly influential work of Renaissance scepticism, De incertitudine et vanitate scientiarum is intended to bring the reader to a position of Christian fideism, though one in which Christian faith is thoroughly infused with Hermetic and Kabbalistic motifs. Agrippa's scepticism about science centres on the point that the senses are too often deceived; therefore "the way of truth is shut up from the senses", and sciences rooted in them are "uncertain, erroneous and deceitful". Appeals to authority are no more acceptable, as the scholastics reply to any questioning of their first principles with torture and execution of so-called heretics. "[A]t the beginning of the era of natural science, it is one of the first testimonials to knowledge of the limits of human understanding" (DSB). "Agrippa's most sustained piece of satirical and polemical writing, this work was frequently reprinted and widely quoted - by, among others, later sixteenth-century religious radicals … Montaigne's scepticism, which represents man as 'naked and empty, acknowledging his natural weakness, apt to receive from above some strange power, disfurnished of human knowledge, and so much the more fit to harbour divine understanding, nullifying his judgment so as to give more place to faith' (1580), is clearly indebted to Agrippa's De vanite" (Routledge encyclopedia of philosophy).
