Bussy-Rabutin ?

Bel exemplaire très bien relié. Anonyme. [le plus souvent attribué sans preuve à Bussy-Rabutin. Roger de Rabutin, comte de Bussy]. La vie de la duchesse de La Valière [La Vallière] où l'on voit une relation curieuse de ses amours et de sa pénitence. Par * * *. A Cologne, chez Jean de La Vérité, 1695 1 volume petit in-12 (14 x 7,5 cm) de 311 pages, frontispice gravé à l'eau-forte et titre imprimé en rouge et noir. Reliure plein veau blond glacé, dos lisse orné aux petits fers dorés (vases et roulettes en guise de faux-nerfs, millésime doré en queue), pièce de titre de maroquin vert, roulette dorée en encadrement des plats, tranches rouges.

Petites fissures du papier sans gravité en marge du frontispice et en marge d'un ou deux feuillet (dont un avec une petite et ancienne réparation), le tout sans perte de texte. Première édition.

London, Awnsham & John Churchil, 1695. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. [xx], 296, [iv] - being the prefact, text and index. A somewhat important work in Arthurian literature, and in speculative fiction in general. Whilst it was written in support of William of Orange, it still serves to help maintain the most famous of English myths. So however tedious the text is (I got through a couple of dozen pages), it is an important work and deserves to have its place retained in the study of the myth. Near fine, early if not contemporary boards - bound in full calf - rebacked somewhat recently with newer endpapers, though still themselves old. Some wear to the spine tips and where the rebacking has been undertaken. A couple of marginal notes. Leaves largely in good shape, tightly bound - a very attractive copy overall. [6477, Hyraxia Books].All items will be packed in bubble-wrap and either a cardboard book-wrap or a box where appropriate.

Holy Bible
Oxford: the University Printers, 1695. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Holy Bibles from the 17th-century are generally considered quite rare, especially those published at Oxford. English Bibles from the 1600s are quite popular today because of their historical significance, as well as unmistakable beauty. This 1695, Oxford-published Bible was printed by the University Printers at Oxford and includes references in the margins throughout.

TSCHIRNHAUS (Ehrenfried Walter von)]
Lipsiae [Leipzig], apud J. Thomam Fritsch, 1695. deux ouvrages en un volume, [28]-296-[4]-64 pp basane mouchetée du XVIIIe soècle, dos à nerfs et fleuronné, pièce de titre rouge 1695, 1695, in-4, deux ouvrages en un volume, [28]-296-[4]-64 pp, basane mouchetée du XVIIIe soècle, dos à nerfs et fleuronné, pièce de titre rouge, Plusieurs figures gravées sur bois. Seconde édition de cette réunion du Medicina mentis et du Medicina corporis, oeuvres majeures du mathématicien, médecin et philosophe allemand postcartésien Ehrenfried Walter von Tschirnhaus (1651-1708). La seconde partie a son titre propre : Medicina corporis seu cogitationes admodum probabiles de conservanda sanitate. La Medicina mentis, qui inclut les principaux travaux philosophiques et mathématiques de Tschirnhaus, invite, par une hygiène de la pensée, à faire un usage sain de la raison. Cet ouvrage eut une importance philosophique considérable à l'aube du siècle des Lumières et contribua à la renommée de son auteur. Tschirnhaus divise son travail en deux sections : la première expose "à quelle occasion et par quelle méthode [il a] trouvé la voie selon [lui] la meilleure de toutes celles que nous puissions prendre en cette vie, et qui consiste en la découverte de la vérité par nous-mêmes" ; la seconde permet de découvrir "de quelle manière l'on peut avancer toujours sans commettre d'erreur, en découvrant un nombre sans cesse croissant de vérités nouvelles". Sur le plan des mathématiques, en partant de l'idée que les êtres mathématiques sont formés par le mouvement rapporté à quelques chose de fixe, Tschirnhaus pr … [Click Below for Full Description]

van Keulen, Johannes
THIS MAP IS IN FLORIDA. Ámsterdam, c. 1695. 51 x 58.5 cm. Estupendo mapa marítimo de la región que comprende las Bahamas, el noreste de Cuba y el sureste de Florida. Fue publicado en Ámsterdam en el cuarto tomo de la obra De Nieuwe Groote Lichtende Zee-Fakkel de Johannes van Keulen, en 1684. Este mapa apareció en lo que se considera la época dorada de la piratería en el Caribe (c.1650-1730). Orientado con el oeste hacia arriba, esta carta proporciona un asombroso y detallado tratamiento de la costa sur de Florida. Un decorativo cartouche en la esquina superior izquierda muestra elementos de la fauna del Nuevo Mundo y dos indígenas a cada lado. La empresa de la familia Van Keulen dominó el ámbito de la cartografía en los Países Bajos desde aproximadamente 1680 hasta 1823, y luego continuó operando bajo otro dueño hasta 1885. Este negocio familiar, de una longevidad poco usual, fue un proveedor líder de mapas, instrumentos y libros sobre temas marítimos.

A good sound copy with some brief ink annotations on the front paste-down, early ink signature on title-page of John Ingleby and another inked out, paper repairs to portrait frontispiece, some browning and foxing in the later sections, generally good with decent margins. § One of two versions printed in 1695 According to K.A. Coleridge, p. 274, "Jacob Tonson issued two collections in 1695, parts of which are in large part the same, but with different arrangements". The first collection (the work being catalogued here) contains a general title page (which the second collection lacks), "Paradise lost", no list of subscribers (cf. Shawcross, 381), "A table" (index to "Paradise lost"), "Paradise regain'd", "Samson Agonistes", "Poems upon several occasions", and Hume's "Annotations", usually (but not always) in that order.

James II, King of England. Parliament
Printed for J. Wickins; and to be sold by the Booksellers of, 1695. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. Octavo. COLLATION: A-B4 C-F8 G-Q4, COMPLETE. [2], 19-176 pp. Attractive half calf antique, marbled boards, red morocco label gilt, compartments gilt with small tools. Very good. ¶ FIRST EDITION of these important Parliamentary debates, providing original and valuable documentation of the constitutional crisis that ensued during the Glorious Revolution of 1688. James II of England (a.k.a. James VII of Scotland), while fleeing to France, dropped the Great Seal of the Realm into the Thames. In Parliament the question was discussed whether he had forfeited the throne or had abdicated. The present volume offers detailed arguments for the both, but ultimately the latter designation was agreed upon, and in a full assembly of the Lords and Commons, it was resolved in spite of James's protest "that King James II having endeavored to subvert the constitution of the kingdom, by breaking the original contract between king and people, and, by the advice of Jesuits and other wicked persons, having violated the fundamental laws, and having withdrawn himself out of this kingdom, has abdicated the government, and that the throne is thereby vacant." The Scottish parliament pronounced a decree of forfeiture and deposition. ¶ In our copy the imprint reads "and to be sold" (in another issue the imprint reads "and sold"). ¶ References: Wing (2nd ed.)

[ALLARD, Carel].
NCC (1 copy of Cleynhens ed.); Rijksmuseum.nl (this ed.); WorldCat (2 copies of Cleynhens ed., incl. that in NCC). Very rare broadsheet with an engraving showing a 17th-century, three-masted Dutch merchant ship and two small sloops. The sails of the ship are furled, giving a clear view of its rigging. Below the illustration are three columns with keys referring to over a 100 parts of the ship and its rigging. The engraving and keys were first published in Allard's Nieuwe Hollandse scheeps-bouw (1695), an essential primary source for the terminology and practice of ship-building in the Dutch golden age. Another edition of the present broadsheet was published around the same time by Bernard Cleynhens in Haarlem. We could only locate three other copies worldwide of the two separately published broadsheet editions combined.The print was formerly in a passepartout, resulting in some minor difference in colour in the margins, otherwise in very good condition, with only some old folds and minor frays.

TSCHIRNHAUS (Ehrenfried Walter von)]
Lipsiae [Leipzig], apud J. Thomam Fritsch, 1695, in-4, deux ouvrages en un volume, [28]-296-[4]-64 pp, basane mouchetée du XVIIIe soècle, dos à nerfs et fleuronné, pièce de titre rouge, Plusieurs figures gravées sur bois. Seconde édition de cette réunion du Medicina mentis et du Medicina corporis, oeuvres majeures du mathématicien, médecin et philosophe allemand postcartésien Ehrenfried Walter von Tschirnhaus (1651-1708). La seconde partie a son titre propre : Medicina corporis seu cogitationes admodum probabiles de conservanda sanitate. La Medicina mentis, qui inclut les principaux travaux philosophiques et mathématiques de Tschirnhaus, invite, par une hygiène de la pensée, à faire un usage sain de la raison. Cet ouvrage eut une importance philosophique considérable à l'aube du siècle des Lumières et contribua à la renommée de son auteur. Tschirnhaus divise son travail en deux sections : la première expose "à quelle occasion et par quelle méthode [il a] trouvé la voie selon [lui] la meilleure de toutes celles que nous puissions prendre en cette vie, et qui consiste en la découverte de la vérité par nous-mêmes" ; la seconde permet de découvrir "de quelle manière l'on peut avancer toujours sans commettre d'erreur, en découvrant un nombre sans cesse croissant de vérités nouvelles". Sur le plan des mathématiques, en partant de l'idée que les êtres mathématiques sont formés par le mouvement rapporté à quelques chose de fixe, Tschirnhaus propose une génération nouvelle et universelle des courbes. Il fait une généralisation du mode de description des coniques au moyen de leur … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jaillot, Alexis Hubert
1695. Elegant double-hemisphere world map with a dedication to the Sun King, Louis XIV, by Hubert Jaillot, featuring two decorative cartouches at the top and bottom. Centre left is the figure of Pheme, the goddess of fame and on the right is Nike the Goddess of strength, speed and victory, both holding the French Royal Arms of France Moderne. The lower cartouche features Jaillot's royal privilege and is bordered on the right by the figure of Triton, a fish-tailed sea god who was the son of Poseidon, king of the seas. Triton stilled the waves with the blow of a conch-shell while to the left is the goddess Aphrodite Derceto represented as a mermaid holding a fish as a symbol of the fertility and life of water. The map was engraved by Louis Cordier with the geographical information provided by Nicholas Sanson, Geographer to the King, and widely considered to be the father of French cartography. Jaillot played an important role in continuing Sanson's legacy. Following Sanson's death in 1667, the business was inherited by his sons Adrien and Guillaume who partnered with Jaillot and his contemporary Pierre Duval to publish Sanson's maps. The first such publication was Jaillot's Atlas Nouveau of 1692. The map shows Australia according to Tasman's first and second voyages 1642-44 and includes the earlier Dutch discoveries made by Houtman 1619, van Leeuwin 1622, Nuyts 1627 and de Wit 1628. The Trial Islands 1622 are also included but incorrectly placed. California is shown as an island. First state of this map published in Jaillot's Atlas Francois of 1695.

London, Awnsham & John Churchil, 1695. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. [xx], 296, [iv] - being the prefact, text and index. A somewhat important work in Arthurian literature, and in speculative fiction in general. Whilst it was written in support of William of Orange, it still serves to help maintain the most famous of English myths. So however tedious the text is (I got through a couple of dozen pages), it is an important work and deserves to have its place retained in the study of the myth.

Bontempi devoted most of his work to the music of the ancients, arguing that Greek music was not polyphonic, but he also touched on the theory and practice of Baroque music. His interest in theory had already been manifested in his Nova ... methodus (1660), dedicated to Schütz and described by Bukofzer as one of 'the four outstanding treatises on counterpoint' of the Baroque period; in the Historia he anticipated modern ideas on the nature of fugue. On the practical side, his account of the daily timetable of the pupils of Mazzocchi is justly famous: apart from singing practice it included music theory, counterpoin … [Click Below for Full Description]

Folding engraved map, 2 engraved plates (one folding), many diagrams and illustrations, folding table. Occasional light spotting, contemporary mottled calf, small splits to joints, light edge wear, 12mo, contained in modern cloth clamshell box. Rare. ESTC records two copies only, both in the United States. £ William Mather, grandson of a mayor of Hull, was born in Bedford. He was a churchman, but about 1661 he and his wife joined the Quakers. He became a teacher and kept a private school in Bedford. He also held an appointment as surveyor of highways and wrote a pamphlet 'On Repairing and Mending the Highways,' 1696, in which he is described as 'late surveyor.' Mather's chief work, 'The Young Man's Companion,' published 1681 (no copies listed in ESTC), contains, in very small compass, information on nearly every practical subject, including a treatment for breast cancer. It became extremely popular and ran through twenty-four editions. To the fourth edition, 1695, are added some verses, and fourteen chapters written by Mather's son Samuel, a clever young man, who died at the age of twenty-two.

[Colbert, Jean-Baptiste] Colbert, John Baptist.
First english edition. London, Printed for R. Bentley, 1695. Small Octavo. Frontispiece, (14), 246, (8) pages. Original Hardcover / Full contemporary leather. Original binding with stronger signs of rubbing to rear board. Pastedown paper loosened. Interior and frontispiece very good. Needs attention from bookbinder. Jean-Baptiste Colbert (29 August 1619 - 6 September 1683) was a French politician who served as the Minister of Finances of France from 1665 to 1683 under the rule of King Louis XIV. His relentless hard work and thrift made him an esteemed minister. He achieved a reputation for his work of improving the state of French manufacturing and bringing the economy back from the brink of bankruptcy. Historians note that, despite Colbert's efforts, France actually became increasingly impoverished because of the King's excessive spending on wars. Colbert worked to create a favourable balance of trade and increase France's colonial holdings. Colbert's market reforms included the foundation of the Manufacture royale de glaces de miroirs in 1665 to supplant the importation of Venetian glass (forbidden in 1672, as soon as the French glass manufacturing industry was on sound footing) and to encourage the technical expertise of Flemish cloth manufacturing in France. He also founded royal tapestry works at Gobelins and supported those at Beauvais. Colbert worked to develop the domestic economy by raising tariffs and by encouraging major public works projects, and to ensure that the French East India Company had access to foreign markets, so that they could always obtain coffee, … [Click Below for Full Description]

A solid and attractive exceedingly rare First Edition of Blackmore's epic poem recounting and embellishment of the Legend of King Arthur.
