MENAGE
Paris: Jean Anisson. Second edition, folio, pp. [112], 740, [12], 100, [2]; Caseneuve's Les Origines Francoise with separately printed title-p. and prelims; full contemporary calf, gilt spine; joints starting, top and bottom of spine chipped, internally clean, binding sound. First published in 1650 in 4to, and enlarged to folio in 1694. Menage (1613-1692), "a man of vast erudition and keen intuition," was one of the few in his day who had first hand knowledge of Old French and the early stages of other Romance languages (which he had gleaned from his studies of law and early legal documents) and was uniquely qualified to carry out such an etymological undertaking. But his sarcasm lead to his expulsion from the French Academy; he had many enemies and "suffered under the satire of Moliere and Boileau" (see Holmes, History of the French Language, 1938, p. 90; and Ency. Brit., 11th ed).

A rare, late 16th-century printing of the history of Verona! The editor, Antonio Palazzolo, explains that this new edition of the 1450 statues was published out of necessity. There was scarcity of surviving copies of the 1450 first edition, and realized that corrections also needed to be made that would have invalidated later editions. The second part, previously unpublished, states various acts by the city of Verona from the mid-14th-century through 1587. We find other examples of this same book for sale elsewhere for over $2,100!

WIT, FREDERICK DE (1630-1706)
HET BEROEMDE AMSTERDAM, HANDELSSTAD VAN HOLLAND ?Amstelodami Celeberrimi Hollandiae Emporii Delineatio Nova?, kopergravure van de stad Amsterdam uit het stedenboek van Frederick de Wit, uitgegeven tussen 1694-1706. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 41 x 43 cm. Als voorbeeld van de kaart diende een eerdere plattegrond van Johannes Janssonius uit 1657. De titel, de legendablokken en het stadswapen en zegel van beide kaarten lijken sterk op elkaar. Laat Janssonius de derde uitleg zien, deze kaart toont ook de vierde uitleg. De kaart werd door de Erven Jansz. van Waesberge in 1682 vervaardigd voor hun stedenboek, met nog het nooit gerealiseerde verkavelingspatroon voor de Plantage, dat stadsarchitect Daniël Stalpaert in 1662 ontwierp. In onze uitgave van Frederick de Wit uit rond 1700, is het inmiddels aangepast. We zien niet alleen de nieuwe verkaveling van de Plantage, inclusief de Hortus, maar ook een verdere bebouwing van het Weesperveld en de Kadijk. Onder andere staat het tussen 1681 en 1683 gebouwde Diacon[ale]  Oude Vrouw[en] Huys (Besjeshuis, later Amstelhof, tegenwoordig Herimitage Amsterdam) aan de Amstel nu op de kaart. Ook werden enkele artilleriemagazijnen bijgeplaatst. In 1694 dempte men het stukje reguliersgracht dat grenst aan de Botermarkt (Rembrandtplein), ook dat is aangegeven. De kaart heeft vier lijsten met aanduidingen. Ter linkerzijde onder het kopje Notularum Explicatio loopt deze van 1 Het Willige Rasphuis (daar waar veroordeelde misdadigers hout moesten raspen ten behoeve van de verfindustrie) tot en met 63 De Engelsche Kerck (op het Begijn … [Click Below for Full Description]

Francisco Xavier Palavicino Villarasa
Juan Joseph Gillena Carrascoso, 1694. In-8º. (7)ff, 6ff. Woodcut vignette with coat of arms. Minor marginal wormholes at the top of the margins, without affecting the text. Bound in full old vellum. Villarasa was a Jesuit born in Valencia (Spain) in the seventeenth century, but then lived in New Spain. He went down in history for his defense of Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, On January 26, 1691, on the day of Santa Paula, he delivered the sermon "La fineza mayor" in the chapel of the Convent of San Jerónimo. The sermon argues what is the greatest fineness of Christ, a controversial issue at that time, because the Letter of Atenagórica of Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz had just been published by the Bishop of Puebla, Fernandez de Santa Cruz. The Atenagórica Letter refuted the proposal of the father Vieira, also Jesuit, that had said in his Sermon of the Mandate. The sermon of Palavicino was, in effect, a species of defense to Sor Juana. When the sermon was published, the Inquisition arrested him and prosecuted him. The sermon was removed from circulation on January 14, 1698, and Palavicino was expelled from the Society of Jesus on October 12, 1703 and was forbidden to say mass, preach and confess.

Thomas Sydenham
London: 1694. Used! Please read description. The compleat method of curing almost all diseases: to which is added an exact description of their several symptoms 1st English edition By Thomas Sydenham 1694 Contemporary leather binding For a long time he was held in vague esteem for the success of his cooling (or rather expectant) treatment of small pox, for his laudanum (or the first form of tincture opium), and for his advocacy of the use of Peruvian bark in quartan agues. There were, however, those among his contemporaries who understood something of Sydenham's importance in larger matters than details of treatment and pharmacy, chief among them being the talented Richard Morton. Among other things Sydenham is credited with the first diagnosis of scarlatina and with the modern definition of chorea. After small-pox, the diseases to which he refers the most are hysteria and gout, his description of the latter (from the symptoms in his own person) being one of the classical pieces of medical writing. "The Compleat Method of Curing Almost all Diseases. To which is added, An Exact Description Of their several Symptoms. / Written in Latin, by Dr. Thomas Sydenham, And now faithfully Englished. / London, / Printed, and are to be Sold by Randal Taylor, near Stationers-hall, 1694."

Wit, Frederick de (1630-1706)
HET BEROEMDE AMSTERDAM, HANDELSSTAD VAN HOLLAND?Amstelodami Celeberrimi Hollandiae Emporii Delineatio Nova?, kopergravure van de stad Amsterdam uit het stedenboek van Frederick de Wit, uitgegeven tussen 1694-1706. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 41 x 43 cm.Als voorbeeld van de kaart diende een eerdere plattegrond van Johannes Janssonius uit 1657. De titel, de legendablokken en het stadswapen en zegel van beide kaarten lijken sterk op elkaar. Laat Janssonius de derde uitleg zien, deze kaart toont ook de vierde uitleg.De kaart werd door de Erven Jansz. van Waesberge in 1682 vervaardigd voor hun stedenboek, met nog het nooit gerealiseerde verkavelingspatroon voor de Plantage, dat stadsarchitect Dani?l Stalpaert in 1662 ontwierp. In onze uitgave van Frederick de Wit uit rond 1700, is het inmiddels aangepast. We zien niet alleen de nieuwe verkaveling van de Plantage, inclusief de Hortus, maar ook een verdere bebouwing van het Weesperveld en de Kadijk. Onder andere staat het tussen 1681 en 1683 gebouwde Diacon[ale] ?Oude Vrouw[en] Huys (Besjeshuis, later Amstelhof, tegenwoordig Herimitage Amsterdam) aan de Amstel nu op de kaart. Ook werden enkele artilleriemagazijnen bijgeplaatst. In 1694 dempte men het stukje reguliersgracht dat grenst aan de Botermarkt (Rembrandtplein), ook dat is aangegeven.De kaart heeft vier lijsten met aanduidingen. Ter linkerzijde onder het kopje Notularum Explicatio loopt deze van 1 Het Willige Rasphuis (daar waar veroordeelde misdadigers hout moesten raspen ten behoeve van de verfindustrie) tot en met 63 De Engelsche Kerck (op het Begijnhof) en ter rech … [Click Below for Full Description]

CLEMENT DAFFINCOURT [Pierre Clément, ingénieur du roi].
A Dunkerque, le 22 septembre 1694. 1694. 1 f. (485 x 345 mm.) manuscrit à l'encre brune et aquarellé. (Traces de pliures, onglet au dos, quelques restaurations marginales, rousseurs et brunissement du pigment, légère trace de mouillure). Rare carte manuscrite établie par Pierre Clément Daffincourt (1652-1704), Ingénieur ordinaire du Roy, Directeur des fortifications des places maritimes de Flandre qui a participé à la construction du port de Dunkerque. Document établis par cet officier lors de l’attaque du port par la flotte anglo-hollandaise en septembre 1694, repoussée par Jean Bart (1650-1702), considérée comme la dernière victoire du célèbre corsaire. Acteur majeur de l’histoire navale française de la fin du 17ème siècle, Jean Bart a vu ses exploits récompensés par Louis XIV qui lui accorde, ainsi qu’à ses descendants, des lettres de noblesse. Sa renommée est telle que les Grands du royaume participent à l'armement de ses vaisseaux en contrepartie d'un tiers des prises. Réalisé sur le vif le 22 septembre 1694, le présent plan représente la dernière grande victoire du célèbre corsaire qui repousse alors une attaque anglo-hollandaise contre sa ville natale. Il est fait chef d'escadre deux ans plus tard et meurt en service le 27 avril 1702 à la veille de la guerre de succession d’Espagne. La guerre de la Ligue d'Augsbourg (1688-1697) est marquée par une intense activité navale, et l’année 1694 est une succession de sièges et de batailles entre la flotte française et la coalition anglo-hollandaise.

Hamburg, Gottfried Schultze & Benjamin Schiller, 1694. 4to. (88), 560, (10) pp. Latin title printed in red and black; Arabic (woodcut) and Latin half-titles, "Sententia Muhammedis" after title page. Preface in Latin, text in vocalized Arabic throughout. Contemp. vellum sewn on 3 vellum tapes through the joints, with ms. title to spine. First and only edition of Hinckelmann’s Arabic text of the Qur’an, the second edition of the Arabic Qur’an, the first actually available to readers and the only convenient edition before 1834, with a 36-page Latin introduction by the editor making extensive reference to the earlier literature. The first complete Arabic edition of the Qur’an was printed at Venice ca. 1537/38, intended for distribution in the Middle East, but the entire edition was thought to have been destroyed until one copy turned up in the 1980s. Hinckelmann’s edition was therefore the first edition available to European scholars, missionaries or Islamic readers. It was followed by Ludovico Marracci’s Arabic and Latin edition published at Padua in 1698, whose two folio volumes and extensive (anti-Islamic) commentary made it both expensive and inconvenient to use. The editions published at St Petersburg (from 1789) and Kazan (from 1803) for the use of Islamic groups in the Russian Empire were almost unknown in Europe, so the present edition remained the primary source for European knowledge of the Qur’an for 140 years, until Flügel’s 1834 Leipzig edition. - Binding slightly rubbed and stained, but well preserved.

HARTSOEKER, Nicolas
J. Anisson, Paris, 1694. First edition, rare, of Hartsoeker's first and most important work, in which he reviewed the principles of optics as far as they were known by the end of the 17th century. In addition to the physics of light and the physiology of vision, the book also treats in great detail techniques for the production of lenses for microscopes and telescopes. "Hartsoeker was always interested in optical instruments. He claimed to have developed a method of making small glass globules for microscopes, though his priority in this is doubted. He definitely made lenses of different focal lengths, some of which survive; one lens is said to have had a focal length of 600 feet. He made a number of instruments, not just optical instruments, for the Paris observatory. He constructed a burning glass of great size" (Galileo Project). The Essay also documents many observations Hartsoeker made with these instruments. Like Leeuwenhoek, Malpighi and others, Hartsoeker was a preformationist at a time when explanations of animal reproduction were a confused blend of Aristotelian theory, religious orthodoxy, and pure speculation. Towards the end of the book, on p. 230, he presented a picture of a little preformed human figure in the head of a spermatozoon. This picture has since become famous and more than a little notorious as an example of observations biased by theoretical prejudice. Hartsoeker's reputation has been forever linked to this picture and if his name appears today at all, he is usually held up as an example of a scientist who saw what he wanted to see.

Numerose illustrazioni nel testo nel primo volume; 8 tavole numerate più 22 tavole segnate da da A a X in fine al secondo volume. Trasposti, nel primo volume, i fogli con le pagine 8-9 e 10-11. [M126] Opera di estrema rarità. Sébastien Le Prestre de Vauban (Saint-Léger-Vauban, 1633 - Parigi, 1707), ingegnere e architetto militare, membro dell'Accademia delle scienze francese e Maresciallo di Francia, fu Commissario generale delle fortificazioni dal 1678 al 1703. E' conosciuto come uno dei più grandi ingegneri militari di tutti i tempi e una delle maggiori figure della Francia del Re Sole. Deve la sua notorietà in particolare agli assedi che ebbe modo di affrontare e dirigere in prima persona durante la sua lunga carriera militare, dei quali fu il primo a formulare una completa teorizzazione matematica col metodo delle "parallele", rimasto in uso fino alla Seconda guerra mondiale. Le sue considerazioni sono mirabilmente esposte in uno dei suoi trattati più celebri, "Veritable manier de bien fortifier", edito per la prima volta a Parigi nel 1692. Istituì, tra gli altri, un corpo di minatori che gli consentì di effettuare una serie di elaborati esperimenti che portarono alla stesura di dettagliate tabelle orarie e istruzioni di scavo matematicamente definite ("Traité des mines", pubblicato la prima volta a Parigi, nel 1740). /span>

Murder, Conspiracy, and a Notorious Forged Will. The lurid deposition from a well-known and cited legal case in Colonial Boston, involving murder, conspiracy, and a notorious forged will. In 1688, Boston shoemaker Edward Hill murdered his wife's elderly uncle, William Penn, a prosperous Braintree landowner, and forged a will to take possession of Penn''s sizable estate. As part of the conspiracy, which also involved Hill's wife, he paid three neighbors £10 each to swear to the validity of the document. Initial public allegations against Hill came from a butcher named John Marsh, whose wife, Mary, was one of he neighbors who allegedly signed and attested to the authenticity of the forged will. The crime became a source of gossip throughout Boston and Marsh's allegations soon caught the attention of two minor town officials, Joseph Hill (no relation) and Richard Draper. Though neither had any legal experience, they started the process of building a case against Edward Hill and became the attorneys for another heir to Penn that they located in England. At an evidentiary hearing before Probate Judge, Lt. Governor Stoughton, on April 3, 1694, Joseph Hill, though he was also was an attorney in the case, gave a deposition testifying to John Marsh's accusations. Stoughton found Hill's and the other evidence presented insufficient to alter the 1689 probate settlement. Joseph Hill … [Click Below for Full Description]

La carta è abbellita ad arco da 38 vedute di città e porti, oltre che da galeoni e mostri marini. Essa proviene dal Neptune François pubblicato da Mortier in cui una sezione di nove carte intitolata Cartes Marines a l'Usage des Armées du Roy de la Grande Bretagne è completamente incisa da De Hooghe. La carta del Mediterraneo è la più grande e bella di tutte. Koeman in "Atlantes Neerlandici", IV, Mor 7-9 riferisce come "the most spectacular type of maritime cartography ever produced in 17th century Amsterdam."

Elle est l'oeuvre de l'helléniste anglais Joshua Barnes, professeur à Cambridge. Le texte grec est imprimé au centre de la page avec la traduction latine en regard en caractères plus petits, le tout étant entouré de gloses. Barnes y publiait cinq lettres qu'il attribuait à Euripide, attribution hasardeuse qui lui attira les foudres de son compatriote Bentley, qui disait de lui qu'il savait aussi bien le grec qu'un savetier d'Athènes... Cela dit, pour sa rareté et sa complétude, cette édition fut longtemps convoitée par les érudits et les bibliophiles qui la portèrent à des prix très élevés jusqu'au XIXe siècle. Schoell en 1824 se montre très sévère pour cette édition, dont il reconnaît qu'elle est plus complète que les précédentes mais n'a aucun mérite critique selon lui. Il note qu'elle est chère et recherchée tout en stigmatisant à ce sujet les bibliophiles : "il y a deux motifs pour lesquels un livre peut être recherché : quand il l'est par le savant, c'est son contenu qui lui métrite cet honne … [Click Below for Full Description]

REFUGE, Eustache de
1694 Arcana Aulica Court & Courtier Walsingham English Politics Queen Elizabeth Originally written by a French diplomat, Edward Walsingham’s ‘Arcana Aulica’ is an English translation and reworking of Eustache de Refuge’s ‘Treatise on the Court’ which is an instruction manual on how to run and maintain a successful organized court. The advice given by Refuge, and edited by Walsingham, is still considered to be relevant today in political circles. Refuge encouraged bizarre and strange behaviors when interacting with others in the royal court – for instance. He notes that it is a common trick to stick your leg out and trip someone so that you can help them to their feet, which will earn you their gratitude. Refuge published this book during the reign of Queen Elizabeth and made references to successes in her court in England, even though the work was originally published in French. This 1694 English edition was published in London and features an added, engraved title page.
