(Magne, 'Bibliogr. de Boileau-Despréaux', n°66. Tchemerzine-Scheler, I, 756 a).Cet écrit valut à Boileau des répliques dune extrême violence qui critiquaient tant lhomme ("implacable ennemi de tout le genre humain" selon Pradon) que loeuvre.2- François Gacon, dit "le Poète sans fard" soutient Boileau quant à la "malignité" des femmes et attaque ses contradicteurs en faisant référence aux femmes malfaisantes de son temps, la marquise de Brinvilliers ou La Voisin.Quelques petites taches claires éparses.Provenance: le marquis de Villoutreys, au château de Plessis-Villoutreys (Maine et Loire), avec ses grandes armes dorées sur les plats et son ex-libris gravé.Bel exemplai … [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 lattaque 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 lhistoire navale française de la fin du 17ème siècle, Jean Bart a vu ses exploits récompensés par Louis XIV qui lui accorde, ainsi quà 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 dEspagne. La guerre de la Ligue d'Augsbourg (1688-1697) est marquée par une intense activité navale, et lannée 1694 est une succession de sièges et de batailles entre la flotte française et la coalition anglo-hollandaise. Louis XIV décide de porter son effort de guerre sur la Méditerranée et l'Espagne … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Quran]
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. Interior in excellent condition, with the occasional minor spo … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

VAUBAN [DE] LE PRESTRE, SEBASTIEN
Paris: chez la Veuve Cramoisy, 1694. Due tomi in un volume. 89, [7], 147, [3] pagine. 19x12 cm.Rilegatura in piena pergamena. Bruniture. Una incisione su ciascun frontespizio. 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>

(Massachussetts) Hill, Joseph
Boston, 1694. 1-1/2 pp. pen and ink on paper, docketed on verso. 4to. Old folds, separated at folds with minor loss to text, else vg. 1-1/2 pp. pen and ink on paper, docketed on verso. 4to. 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]

Primo stato su quattro.Bell'esemplare della più celebre e scenografica carta del Mediterraneo, capolavoro della cartografia olandese e di Romeyn De Hooghe, in assoluto uno dei più famosi autori ed incisori, ricercato proprio per l'estrema ricchezza decorativa delle carte prodotte. 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." E "most expensive sea atlas...intended more as a show-piece than something to be used by the pilots as sea".Egmond, Covens-Mortier, I/IV; Whitfield, P. (Maritime) pp.86-7; Koeman, C.

Reliure de l'époque. 2 portraits h.-t. gravés à l'eau-forte, (4) ff., lvj-330 pp.; (1) f., 529 pp., (43) pp. d'index. Rousseurs. Edition la plus complète d'Euripide jamais exécutée jusque là. 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.

Later marbled wrappers, paper label with script title on the spine. Rare Dutch translation of a work first published in French in 1692. With a fine frontispiece by Thomas Doesburgh (active 1683-1714). "Philippe Avril was a Jesuit explorer of the Far East. He was born at Angoulême, France on 16 September 1654. Avril was a professor of philosophy and mathematics at Paris when he was dispatched to the Jesuit missions of China. Following the instructions of Ferdinand Verbiest, another Jesuit, then at Peking, he attempted an overland journey, and traveled for six years through Kurdistan, Armenia, Astrakhan, Persia, and other countries of eastern Asia. Arriving at Moscow, Avril was refused permission to pass through Tatary, and was sent by the Government to Poland, whence he made his way to Istanbul and from there went back to France. Though exhausted by disease, he set out again on a vessel, which was lost at sea. Avril presumably died in a 1698 shipwreck. Avril's journal and writings provide a significant amount of useful material for modern historians and demographers" (Wikipedia). According to Tiele his name is d'Avril.

London: Printed for Richard Cumblerand...; and Benjamin Bragg..., 1694, 1694. FIRST EDITION. 12mo, 139 x 75 mms., pp. [xviii], 96, 73 - 104, 141 - 253 [254 blank, 255 - 260 adverts], including "Advertisement" leaf before title-page, recently rebound in full period-style calf, with borders in blind on covers, raised bands red morocco label; Advertisement leaf repaired at outer margin, top edge of several leaves shaved with occasional incursion into page number, E9 fore-margin slightly frayed, leaves B5, D5 and L4 missigned B4, D4 and K4 respectively, but a good copy. The anonymous author dedicates the work to John Meeres, probably not the printer whose dates ODNB gives as "1698 - 1761?". The author refers, however, to his performances as being made "worse by the mistakes of the Printer." The book's argument endorses the advantages of marriage over more irregular arrangements: "We may distinguish three sorts of persons, that are engaged in the shameful commerce of the flesh. The one seeks after it by inclination, and make it their chiefest good [sic]. Another sort continues it because they cannot get rid thereof, being retained as it were in sight of themselves by force and custom, and by the fatality of their temperature. The last apply themselves to it both by inclination and custom; but they look on this as a piece of gallantry and as a mode in Society which they are allowed to follow with others and without hazard."

Frontespizio calcografico a precedere quello a stampa impresso in rosso e nero e con vignetta incisa su rame, 2 tavole non numerate fuori testo incise in rame, 38 illustrazioni a piena pagina nel testo di cui una non numerata e 37 siglate in numeri romani TAB. I-XXXVII. Rimontato, con braghette e rinforzi al margine interno del frontespizio inciso e di varie carte, gora e tracce di polvere al frontespizio a stampa, qualche arrossatura e lieve brunitura. Legatura rimontata in pergamena su cartone, titoli in oro su tassello al dorso, aloni e arrossature ma nel complesso un buon esemplare. Bella edizione latina del L'anatomia dei muscoli di John Browne pubblicato la prima volta nel 1681 e meglio nota come Myographia nova, dal titolo, appunto, di questa edizione. Divenuta assai popolare se ne conterranno più di dieci edizioni con traduzioni in latino e tedesco. Il manoscritto del Compleat Treatise fu completato nel 1675, nel periodo in cui Browne iniziò a esercitare la professione di chirurgo presso la corte di CArlo II. Da questo momento in poi, l'ambizioso medico iniziò a pubblicare opere, certo di promuovere più facilmente e più velocemente il suo nome e aumentare la sua fama. (Cfr. Russell [1959], p. 397). Le dediche a Carlo II potrebbero averlo agevolato in tal senso contribuendo alle raccomandazioni necessarie per fargli ottenere la prestigiosa posizion … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bruniture per la qualità della carta e dell'inchiostro: un timbro di biblioteca estinta al front. (7618) Seconda edizione, apparsa dopo quella di Londra del 1690, di questo vasto repertorio bibliografico che su ogni autore elencato riporta, in voci ampie e dettagliate, oltre ai cenni bio-bibliografici, le più importanti testimonianze ed i più significativi giudizi critici forniti da studiosi ed eruditi del loro tempo: "censura" quindi nel senso di "recensioni", e non già di attività censoria in senso stretto. Tra gli autori censiti ricordiamo: Aldrovandi, F. Bacone, Barclay, Bellarmino, Bembo, Boccaccio, Boccalini, T. Brahe, Calvino, Campanella, Cardano, Chaucer, Copernico, Dante, Falloppio, Fernel, Galileo, Gassendi, Gesner, Grotius, Guicciardini, Harvey, van Helmont, Hobbes, Jansenius, Kimchi, Lascaris, Leonicenus, Lipsius, Lullus, P.

Da notare l'estrema libertà dell'autore, che malgrado il titolo non ha censurato alcun personaggio, anche quelli più eterodossi. Thomas Pope Blunt (1649-97), figlio di Henry Blunt (noto viaggiatore ed erudito), ebbe il titolo di baronetto, fu letterato e naturalista. Nicéron, XXII … [Click Below for Full Description]

Thomas Burnet nato a Croft nel 1635 e morto a Londra il 27 settembre nel 1715 è stato un celebre teologo inglese.

Questa qui presentata è l’edizione completa. Burnet applicò la sua cosmogonia alla spiegazione di numerosi fenomeni geologici.

I. E. T. P. ST., Hrsg. und Johann Ernst Teichmann
175 S. Halbpergament Frakturschrift, roter Schnitt Buch in altersgemäß sehr guter Erhaltung, Einband mit altersgemäßen Gebrauchsspuren, Seiten hell und sauber, Einbandinnendeckel und Vorsatzblatt mit handschriflt. Eintrag. Johann Ernst Teichmann (* 25. Juli 1694 in Bayreuth 1746 in Stammbach) war evangelischer Pfarrer und Historiker. Johann Ernst Teichmann, Sohn eines markgraflichen Hofriemers, besuchte das Gymnasium Christian-Ernestinum seiner Geburtsstadt Bayreuth und später die Fürstenschule Heilsbronn. Er studierte Theologie an der Universität Wittenberg und der Universität Altdorf. Er wurde 1720 Pfarrer in Haag und 1725 in Stammbach, wo er bis zu seinem Lebensende wirkte. Sein Vorgänger als Stammbacher Pfarrer war Georg Friedrich Eck in den Jahren 1697 bis 1725, ab 1785 ist Christoph Heinrich Schlenk als Nachfolger bekannt. Überliefert sind von Teichmann Werke der Dichtkunst, eine erste Chronik von Stammbach und eine Beschreibung des Klosters Himmelkron. Die Chronik erwies sich als fehlerhaft, wertvoll sind allerdings Teichmanns Beschreibungen aus seiner eigenen Zeit. Für das Kloster Himmelkron schrieb er neben einer umfassenden Chronik auch eine ausführliche Schilderung des Todes des Markgrafen Georg Friedrich Karl, bei dem er 1735 wohl persönlich anwesend war. Mit der Bestattung von Markgraf Georg Friedrich Karl im Kloster Himmelkron knüpften die Hohenzollern an die Grablege der Grafen von Orlamünde an.

Masonic bookplate of the London Lodge; full leather binding with bands, antiquarian binding and worn around the edges, but firm; two old labels but no titles on spine; collated complete with the following anomalies - Tract I: pagination misnumbered between chapters III & IV, moving from page 48 to 65 but contiguous with the text. Tract III: first page should be numbered 149 but shows 151 (number 151 follows in right sequence); with an introduction signed, Philetæros and the preface signed, Philomathes; A VERY GOOD OR BETTER COPY with an unusual hand-written work bound at the front of volume on four leaves in an 18th century script, probably 1730-40. This begins: "I have scribed that in your booke which it's probable you will not approve, however, if I can satisfy you that Common Mercury (symbol drawn) is our principle in the Work, is what you reported(?): I think this may plainly appear about pag(e)...." and it proceeds with an erudite explanation of the alchemical work through the next nine pages (with additional marginalia throughout the volume). I have not been able to identify the writer and the hand is somewhat cramped though readable. The writer was no wiseacre but someone with a keen knowledge of the methods of Alchemy.

In-4, plein vélin rigide de l'époque, dos lisse titré à la plume, (1) f. de titre, (22), 233, (1) p. de privilège, bandeaux, culs-de-lampe, nombreuses illustrations sur bois dans le texte, une carte de la Lune gravée par Duchange hors-texte. Edition originale de cet ouvrage consacré, pour la première partie, à la nature de la lumière, à sa diffusion, à l’anatomie de l’œil, aux mécanismes de la vision et à une théorie des couleurs. La deuxième partie est consacrée à la fabrication des verres optiques et des lentilles, leur polissage et leur utilisation, tant pour les microscopes que pour les lunettes astronomiques. Nicolas Hartsoeker est l’inventeur du microscope sphérique et du microscope à barillet (illustré ici pour la première fois, pages 175-176). "Il fournit divers instruments à l'Observatoire de Paris: un grand microscope à trois verres, des lunettes montées, des objectifs, etc. Il acquit ainsi une excellente réputation d'opticien" (cf. Daumas, ‘Les instruments scientifiques’, p.118). L’auteur rend également compte de ses observations au microscope, en particulier celles du spermatozoïde. C’est dans cet ouvrage qu’il développe sa théorie de la génération dite "des animalculistes": il décrit un être vivant microscopique, mais déjà parfaitement constitué logé dans la tête des spermatozoïdes, qui, après transfert, croît dans l'utérus par ajout de couches successives, l’œuf féminin servant à le nourrir (cf. illustration). Astronome, géomètre et physicien hollandais, Nicolas Hartsoeker (165 … [Click Below for Full Description]

PEAD, Deuel
London: Printed for Will. Newton, 1694. [16], 125pp, [1]. With initial imprimatur leaf and a cancel title leaf. Contemporary blind-ruled sheep, rubbed with a little loss to spine. Reducing stain to head of title, preliminaries and first 12 leaves, else a clean and crisp copy in an unsophisticated binding. Several ink inscriptions of 'John Cain his book 1763', to verso of A1 and final leaf, later inscription of 'J.H.L. Parker, 1940' to FFEP. A rare variant edition, with a cancel title, of an altogether uncommon work by acclaimed preacher Deuel Pead (1647-1727), Minister of St. James, Clerkenwell, known for high church leanings and encouraging his congregations to bow reverently at the name of Jesus. Pead's sermons were published with regularity between 1694 and 1719, and he is perhaps best remembered for his Annus victoriis mirabilis (London, 1706/7), a New Years Eve thanksgiving sermon occasioned by the Duke of Marlborough's victories in the War of the Spanish Succession. This present title, described as 'an abstract of some sermons Preach'd in...St James Clerkenwell' is scripturally based on Matthew XIII, 58, and was apparently his first published work. Pead had been, however, long recognised as an inspiring preacher; he was one of several young clergyman dispatched to Virginia in the seventeenth-century as part of Henry Compton, Bishop of London's attempt to establish Anglicanism in the New World. He served St. Peter's Parish, Henrico, and is recorded as having preached at Jamestown in 1686. ESTC locates a single copy of this variant, which names only William Norton as p … [Click Below for Full Description]
