        De la generation de l'homme, ou tableau de l'amour conjugal.

      Cologne: Claude Joly 1696 - 7th edition. 672 p., frontis, 12 pl., some folding. Bound in contemporary vellum. Good binding and cover. Soiling to vellum. Tear to front joint, splitting head of spine vellum and side of front board. Clean, unmarked pages. First treatise on sexology in West. Discussing four sub-topics with respect to sex: anatomy, reproduction, desire, and impotence/infertility, Venette reviews ancient and medieval authors, adding his own observations or those of later authors, and comments where common sense prevails. The resulting composition has an ambiguous mixture of seriousness and light-heartedness bordering upon erotic literature. Venette proposes a solution to the crisis of love that exists in his time, advocating a balance between impetuous lovers and religious imperatives. On the one hand, it seeks to defuse the fears of people regarding sex, and to change overall pessimistic views towards love and sexuality. On the other hand, it invites the reader to tame romantic passions by reason and respect for natural laws. The book is not only an instruction manual that provides information on sexuality, it also aims to educate by offering a new way of being and living love in the state of marriage. (Dupas, L'apport du Dr Nicolas Venette, 2007) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Utrecht wandkaart - De Roy.

      NIEUWE KAART VANDEN LANDE VAN UTRECHTKopergravure, samengesteld uit meerdere bladen, vervaardigd door Bernard de Roy in 1696, 2e staat uitgegeven door Covens en Mortier in 1743. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (prent) 121 x 184 cm.Dit is de bekendste kaart van de provincie Utrecht en na uitgifte van de gedetailleerdere 2e staat in 1743, ongeveer een eeuw het meest gezaghebbende kaartwerk over de provincie waarop alle latere kaarten zouden teruggaan.Ter omkadering van de kaart werden gravures gemaakt met wapens van Holland, stad en provincie Utrecht, magistraatspersonen en gezichten van Montfoort, Wijk bij Duursteerde, Utrecht, Rhenen en Amersfoort. Deze op losse bladen gedrukte versieringen zitten niet bij dit exemplaar.De Roy"s grootschalige kaart is er een in een reeks, als wandkaarten bedoelde, die in de 17e-eeuw van vele delen van ons land zijn verschenen. Bij gebrek aan een uniforme grootschalige kaart van het gehele grondgebied van de Republiek, vormden deze op verschillende schalen ontworpen en in kwaliteit en uitvoering uiteenlopende kaartwerken, toenmaals de hoofdbron van de geografische kennis omtrent de afzonderlijke gewesten.De kaart van Den Lande van Utrecht werd behalve om haar geografische informatie ook uit decoratieve en representatieve overwegingen gebruikt en vormde een waardige en passende versiering, zowel voor de vergaderzalen van de bestuurscolleges als voor de huizen van welgestelde particulieren. Helaas betekende deze bestemming meestal haar vrijwel zekere ondergang. Blootgesteld aan licht, stof, vocht, roet, temperatuurswisselingen, veelvuldige aanraking en andere ongunstige invloeden, takelden de op linnen of hout gemonteerde exemplaren in de loop der tijden sterk af en eindigden meestal roemloos hun bestaan. Dit exemplaar heeft haar "bestemming" als wandkaart in eerste instantie niet bereikt, maar is in atlasvorm samengebonden geconserveerd gebleven en pas in de 20e-eeuw gemonteerd.Literatuur: facsimile met introductie door A.H. Sijmons (1973).Prijs: € 7.500,-.

        Reliquiae Baxterianae or Mr. Richard Baxter's Narrative of the Most Memorable Passages of his Life and Times

      t. Park Hurts, F Robsinson, F Lawrence and F. Dunton, London 1696 - Complete Vol. is tight and almost no foxing. Frontispiece engraved by Robert White. Missing some leather on front cover and is quite loose but still attached. Some page corners are nibbled the back of the book is attached to the spine and has some missing leather as well. Some writing on inside of front cover from 1894 some more writing from 1792 on the next pg. by John Hudson. The book measure 13 inches by 8 inches by 3 inches deep. If the new owner wishes to have this book rebound we will agree to reimburse the cost back to the buyer after it is rebound. The 800-page folio consists of autobiographical papers, with supporting documents, written in the main in 1664, 1665 and 1670-85, covering the seventy-year period from Baxter's birth in 1615, most expansively the years following the restoration of monarchy and Charles II's return in 1660. Its editor was the nonconformist minister Matthew Sylvester (1636?-1708). This book is an unrivalled primary historical source for seventeenth-century English political, religious, social, cultural and literary history. Baxter offers a first-hand account of events at the highest level (he met, and comments on, Cromwell, Charles II, Clarendon, Sheldon) but he is also (particularly through his ministry) a witness to the experiences of a great range of provincial members of the mercantile, clerical, artisan and agricultural classes. The Reliquiae is a foundation text for eighteenth-century ecclesiastical and historiographical traditions. Its vindication of moderate Puritanism and its accounts of the early nonconformists passed Baxterianism on to eighteenth-century dissent. In this respect, the Reliquiae was an early contributor to the literary civil war prompted by the 'Glorious Revolution' of 1688/89 to determine the master narrative of seventeenth-century English history. Baxter's was one of the most acute intelligences and complex personalities of the period. He was fascinated by individuality, by temperament and by psychology, his own as much as others'. The Reliquiae is rich in sharply realised and acute characterisations and in passages of remarkably perceptive self-scrutiny and reflection, leading to its being hailed as one of the masterpieces of early autobiographical writing in the English tradition and as a key text in the development of both historiography and autobiography as distinct literary genres. The Reliquiae is the most significant and substantial seventeenth-century work of personal record never to have received scholarly editorial attention. Much of this info obtained from the University of Stirling. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Method to Science.

      London: Printed by W. Redmayne for the Author, and are to be Sold by Thomas Metcalf, , 1696. Octavo (171 x 108 mm). Contemporary mottled calf neatly rebacked. Tiny ownership inscription on front pastedown of Leonard J. Eslick of St Louis University. General light paper toning and foxing. A very good copy. First edition of one of the principal works of the Roman Catholic controversialist and philosopher John Sergeant (1623-1707). "A more thoroughgoing Aristotelian critique of Locke came from... John Sergeant, who, as a Catholic, stood outside the clerical assaults emanating from the established church. Sergeant's critique of Locke was part of a more wide-ranging critique of what he called 'ideists', a category which yokes Descartes and Locke together. He targets Locke in his The Method to Science (1696) and Solid Philosophy Asserted, against the Fancies of the Ideists (1697)... His principal objection to Locke's epistemology was its implicit scepticism. he charged Locke that his natural philosophy failed to provide universal conclusions or maxims" (Sarah Hutton, British Philosophy in the Seventeenth Century, OUP 2015, p. 202). With an interesting provenance: contemporary ownership inscription at head of title page of Thomas Sandys (and one or two neat marginal corrections), possibly the "interloper" or private trader, who, in 1689, was at the centre of a court case against the East India Company. Ownership inscription on verso of front free endpaper: "The property of Shaderick Penn, Bought at Harpers Ferry, Sept the 4 1819 price $1.00"; this may be an alternate spelling of Shadrak Penn Jr, editor of the Louisville Public Advertiser and "the dominant editorial voice in the state for a number of years" (John E. Kleber ed., The Encyclopaedia of Louisville, 2001, p. 569).

        CODEX JURIS ALEMANNICI FEUDALIS .

      Joh. Friderici Spoor, Argentorati (Strassburg) 1696 - Small 4to. (7-5/8" x 5-3/4") . 14 preliminary leaves, an inserted leaf (engraved: "Alphabetum Anglo-Saxonicum") -- 221 ff. ("Das Rehte lehenbuch das zu Nuerenberg wwart gemaht" -- this section is arranged with the medieval German text on the left-hand side, versos, facing Schilter's Latin translation, rectos) -- Following this bilingual text is a 5-1/2 pp. Index (printed in double-columns, with headings in both old German and Latin) ; Next -- is a text: "Jus Feudale Saxonicum. Ab Epkowe de Repkaw." 56 pp. Next follows Johann Schilter's commentary (in Latin) on German Feudal Law -- 658 pp. (This long section also includes a supplement, and several short dissertations on specific related subjects) -- The volume concludes with an unpaginated "Index Rerum et Verborum" [20] pp. The binding is contemporary -- half tan sheep over sprinkled paper-covered boards, raised bands, dark red spine label lettered in gilt, marbled endpapers, edges stained red. There is an excellent engraved pictorial bookplate mounted to the front paste-down -- with an identification in old ink MSS of Georgius Albertus Steinheil. And a corroborating ink owner's inscription on the title page. There is some minor rubbing to the spine, and to the corners -- but generally this in excellent condition. The author is known for a compilation of documents of Feudal German history and literature -- "Thesaurus Antiquitatum Teutonicarum." published in Ulm in 1727-8 (see Brunet V: 202) -- which has shown up a couple of times at auction in the last 25 years -- but this earlier work strictly on Feudal and Medieval law appears to be quite rare. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

XCVI. 1696 - 1696 1sted Works & Fables of Jean de La Fontaine FRENCH Literature Madame Ulrich Jean de La Fontaine (1621 –1695) was the most famous French fabulist and one of the most widely read French poets of the 17th century.

        Observations concerning the Original and Various Forms of Government,

      London: Printed for R.R.C. and are to be Sold by Samuel Keble and Daniel Brown [Patriarcha:] Printed for Ric. Chiswell, Matthew Gillyflower and William Henchman, , 1696 & 1680. as described, viz. 1st. Upon Aristotles Politiques. 2d. Mr. Hobbs's Laviathan. 3d. Mr. Milton against Salmatius. 4th. Hugo Grotius, de Jure Bello. 5th. Mr. Hunton's Treatise of Manoarchy, or the Nature of a limited or mixed Monarchy, To which is added the Power of Kings. With directions for Obedience to Government in Dangerous and Doubtful Times. [Together with:] Patriarcha: or the Natural Power of Kings. 2 works bound as one, small octavo (179 x 109 mm). Contemporary panelled calf neatly rebacked (in 1967, according to a pencil note). Engraved portrait frontispiece of Charles II. Discreet book label of the historian Peter Laslett (1915-2001), editor of Filmer (Patriarcha and other Political Writings, 1949). A little wear to corners of binding, bound without the preliminary blank to Patriarcha, neat marginal repair to H3 in Observations. A very good copy. First expanded edition of the Observations (published originally in 1652) and first edition of the Patriarcha, although Johann Sommerville (in his edition of 1991) notes that the Chiswell edition was "probably published later" as it corrects errors in the edition of 1680 published by Walter Davis. These are both key works by the English political writer Robert Filmer (1588?-1653), perhaps best known for being on the receiving end of John Locke's Two Treatises of Government (1690), an "extended attack on the politics of Sir Robert Filmer. Filmer had died in 1653, but his main work, Patriarcha, was not published until 1680. It set out the patriarchal theory of politics in its most extreme and most vulnerable form. For Filmer we are not born free, but in a state of subjection to our parents and to the rulers whom God has set over us. Paternal and political power are ultimately the same: both descend from Adam, who had by right of fatherhood royal authority over his children, and this authority passed to his successors. Locke set out to demolish this theory not merely by severing the chain of argument at its weakest link, but by destroying every part that appeared vulnerable. He argued that Adam never possessed the kind of power that Filmer supposed, and that even if he had done, it could not have been conveyed to his posterity in any manner that could justify the titles of any of the monarchs now ruling. Filmer's theory required that Adam's power descended either by a form of primogeniture, so that at any time there was a single heir who was rightful monarch of the whole world, or to all his descendants—that is, to everyone" (ODNB).

        Utrecht wandkaart - De Roy.

      NIEUWE KAART VANDEN LANDE VAN UTRECHTKopergravure, samengesteld uit meerdere bladen, vervaardigd door Bernard de Roy in 1696, 2e staat uitgegeven door Covens en Mortier in 1743. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (prent) 121 x 184 cm.Dit is de bekendste kaart van de provincie Utrecht en na uitgifte van de gedetailleerdere 2e staat in 1743, ongeveer een eeuw het meest gezaghebbende kaartwerk over de provincie waarop alle latere kaarten zouden teruggaan.Ter omkadering van de kaart werden gravures gemaakt met wapens van Holland, stad en provincie Utrecht, magistraatspersonen en gezichten van Montfoort, Wijk bij Duursteerde, Utrecht, Rhenen en Amersfoort. Deze op losse bladen gedrukte versieringen zitten niet bij dit exemplaar.De Roy"s grootschalige kaart is er een in een reeks, als wandkaarten bedoelde, die in de 17e-eeuw van vele delen van ons land zijn verschenen. Bij gebrek aan een uniforme grootschalige kaart van het gehele grondgebied van de Republiek, vormden deze op verschillende schalen ontworpen en in kwaliteit en uitvoering uiteenlopende kaartwerken, toenmaals de hoofdbron van de geografische kennis omtrent de afzonderlijke gewesten.De kaart van Den Lande van Utrecht werd behalve om haar geografische informatie ook uit decoratieve en representatieve overwegingen gebruikt en vormde een waardige en passende versiering, zowel voor de vergaderzalen van de bestuurscolleges als voor de huizen van welgestelde particulieren. Helaas betekende deze bestemming meestal haar vrijwel zekere ondergang. Blootgesteld aan licht, stof, vocht, roet, temperatuurswisselingen, veelvuldige aanraking en andere ongunstige invloeden, takelden de op linnen of hout gemonteerde exemplaren in de loop der tijden sterk af en eindigden meestal roemloos hun bestaan. Dit exemplaar heeft haar "bestemming" als wandkaart in eerste instantie niet bereikt, maar is in atlasvorm samengebonden geconserveerd gebleven en pas in de 20e-eeuw gemonteerd.Literatuur: facsimile met introductie door A.H. Sijmons (1973).Prijs: € 7.500,-.

Dans cette œuvre de physique universelle, il étudie les éléments qui composent l'univers, la formation de la Terre et des planètes, le phénomène de la pesanteur, les propriétés des corps solides et liquides, la formation du Soleil, des étoiles fixes et la nature du feu, le mouvement de la terre et des planètes, le flux et reflux de la mer, la nature et les propriétés de l'aimant, les volcans et les tremblements de terre, les vents, les météores, l'origine des fontaines, des puits et des rivières. Hartsoeker enseigna sa physique à d'illustres élèves parmi lesquels Pierre le Grand. Tous ses traités furent rédigés en français et ne furent souvent traduits, même en langue flamande, que beaucoup plus tard. Sa correspondance avec Fontenelle, qui le soutenait contre les attaques de ses adversaires, ainsi que quelques démonstrations sur l'invalidité du système de Newton, auquel il était violemment opposé, ne seront publiées qu'après sa mort.

        [Normandy] Le Duché et Gouvernement de Normandie divisée en Haute et Basse Normandie en divers Pays; et par evêchez, avec le Gouvernement General du Havre de Grace

      Paris: Alexis Hubert Jaillot, 1696. Copper-engraved map, with full original colour and gold embellishments, in excellent condition. A highly decorative map of Normandy by Alexis Jaillot, an exceptional example with gilt embellishments One of the most important figures in French cartography, Nicolas Sanson initiated the great school of French geographers. Born in Abbeville in 1600, Sanson established his first printing house in Paris in 1638. He soon became geographer to the king, establishing himself as one of the most influential cartographers on the Continent. He was succeeded by his sons, Adrien, and Guillaume, and by his son in law Pierre Duval, who continued to publish a wealth of maps using Sanson's name. At the close of the seventeenth century, Sanson's plates were purchased by the influential cartographer Alexis Hubert Jaillot, who continued to publish his maps and atlases under Sanson's title. This stunning map of Normandy is based on Sanson's map published in 1650, but was redrawn and enlarged by Jaillot. It shows the provinces of Normandy as well as the northern tip of Brittany and part of the English Channel. Both Jersey and Guernsey are included as is Mont St. Michel off the coast of St. Malo. In keeping with all of Sanson's and Jaillot's superb maps, forests, rivers, and towns are meticulously identified and named. The map includes an ornate cartouche in the upper section as well as a scale and key. Tooley, Maps & Map-Makers , pp. 40-41.

        Les Hommes Illustres qui ont paru en France pendant ce Siecle:

      1696. first edition. One Hundred and Two Magnificent Portraits of Famous Men of the Seventeenth CenturyPERRAULT, Charles. Les Hommes Illustres qui ont paru en France pendant ce Siecle: Avec leurs Portraits au naturel. Par Mr Perrault, de l'Academie Françoise. Paris: Chez Antoine Dezallier, 1696-1700. First edition. Two folio volumes (16 15/16 x 11 1/8 inches; 431 x 283 mm.). [viii], 100, [2], [2], [2, list of plates]; [iv], 102, [1], [1, blank] pp. Allegorical title engraved by Edelinck after Bonet, engraved portrait engraved by Edelinck after Tortebat (facing preface) of Charles Perrault and 102 fine portraits engraved by Lubin, Edelinck, Duflos, van Schuppen and Nanteuil, of the illustrious men of France, including the two 'suppressed' plates of Antoine Arnauld, Docteur de Sorbonne and Blaise Pascal which are bound in with their respective leaves of text at the end of the text in volume one.Contemporary mottled calf, spines with six raised bands, decoratively stamped in gilt in compartments, red morocco labels lettered in gilt…A fine and large copy of the first printing with early impressions of the plates and wide margins. The censor had suppressed two of the portraits, Antoine Arnauld and Blaise Pascal replacing them with those of Louis Thomassin, Prestre de l'Oratoire and Charles Du Fresne, Sieur Du Cange. These two censored portraits and the corresponding text sheets have been bound in at the end of the first volume, as in the example cited by Brunet. "Comme le siecle où nous vivons, riche des biens de tous les siecles precedens qu'il a recueillis par droit de succession, & riche encore de son propre fonds, a vû toutes les Sciences & tous les Arts s'élever en quelque sorte à leur derniere perfection; il n'est pas étonnant qu'il ait esté si fecond en grands Hommes" (Préface). An English translation by J. Ozell, was published in 1704, and a Dutch edition in French in 1736, but neither of these editions reproduced the engravings that had originally accompanied the text in the first edition. There has never been a second edition. The only other version that is currently available is by Slatkine (1970), a photo-facsimile reproduction of the first edition. Perrault's work consists of one hundred and two pen-portraits of famous men of the seventeenth century, each accompanied by an engraving. No women are included, though this cannot be attributed to misogyny in the case of Perrault who was much maligned for his own Apologie des femmes (1694). No individual portrait is longer than two pages. For inclusion, the individuals had to be dead (hence Boileau, who died in 1711, could not have been included and, in any case, since he was an arch Ancient and a long-standing literary enemy, Perrault might have chosen to exclude him). Charles Perrault (1628-1703) was a French author and member of the Académie Française. He laid the foundations for a new literary genre, the fairy tale, with his works derived from pre-existing folk tales. The best known of his tales include Le Petit Chaperon Rouge (Little Red Riding Hood), Cendrillon (Cinderella), Le Chat Botté (Puss in Boots), La Belle au bois Dormant (The Sleeping Beauty), and Barbe Bleue (Bluebeard). Some of Perrault's versions of old stories may have influenced the German versions published by the Brothers Grimm more than 100 years later. The stories continue to be printed and have been adapted to opera, ballet (such as Tchaikovsky's The Sleeping Beauty), theatre, and film. Perrault was an influential figure in the 17th-century French literary scene, and was the leader of the Modern faction during the Quarrel of the Ancients and the Moderns.Brunet (IV, 509)

        Ductor Dubitantium: or, The Rule of Conscience in all her General Measures; Serving as a Great Instrument for the Determination of Cases of Conscience. In Four Books.

      Luke Meredith, London 1696 - Leather hardcover which shows wear, corners are bumped. Spine has been repaired, free end papers are discoloured, printed pages are in very good condition with minor foxing. Jeremy Taylor[baptized 15 August 1613 to 13 August 1667] was a cleric in the Church of England who achieved fame as an author during the Protectorate of Oliver Cromwell. He is sometimes known as the "Shakespeare of Divines" for his poetic style of expression, and he is frequently cited as one of the greatest prose writers in the English language. He is remembered in the Church of England's calendar of saints with a Lesser Festival on 13 August. Taylor was under the patronage of William Laud, Archbishop of Canterbury. He went on to become chaplain in ordinary to King Charles I as a result of Laud's sponsorship. This made him politically suspect when Laud was tried for treason and executed in 1645 by the Puritan Parliament during the English Civil War. After the parliamentary victory over the King, he was briefly imprisoned several times. Eventually, he was allowed to live quietly in Wales, where he became the private chaplain of the Earl of Carbery. At the Restoration, his political star was on the rise, and he was made Bishop of Down and Connor in Ireland. He also became vice-chancellor of the University of Dublin [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Les Travaux de Mars, ou l'Art de la guerre, divisés en trois parties

      1696 - 3 volumes in-8, fontispices Amsterdam, Henri Desbordes, 1696, , 3 volumes in-8, fontispices en tête de chaque volume, [13] ff. et 373-[7] pp. + [7] ff. et 343-[4] pp. + [7] ff. et 387-[9] pp, reliures parchemin ivoire postérieur, tranches rouges, Seconde édition hollandaise, après celle parue en 1684-1685 (Johannes & Gillis Janssonius van Waesberge) : originale est de Paris 1671-1672 (Jean Hénault & Claude Garbin). Très nombreuses gravures en taille-douce à pleine page dans le texte, figurant des plans au sol, des élévations et des vues cavalières de forteresses ou villes fortifiées, et autres travaux de siège : lors de sa parution, l'ouvrage de Manesson Mallet était le premier, dans l'histoire des traités militaires, à user ainsi d'une rigoureuse alternance entre texte et figures. Il se divise en deux grandes parties : l'une sur les méthodes pour fortifier toutes sortes de places, l'autre comprenant des modèles d'auteurs les plus renommés en art militaire. L'ouvrage connut un succès important et plusieurs éditions, dont quelques unes contrefaites, furent publiées à la suite. Alain Manesson Mallet (1630-1706), né à Paris, était l'un des ingénieurs favoris de Vauban, qui dit de lui : "(.) j'ai trouvé à la Rochelle un homme illustre et de grande réputation que je cherchais depuis longtemps (.). Il dessine très bien, entend fort bien la guerre et la fortification et écrit bien". En 1663, il se met au service d'Alphonse VI du Portugal en tant qu'ingénieur des camps et armées ; lors de son retour en France, il est nommé maître de mathématiques des pages de Louis XIV, auquel il dédié Les travaux de Mars.

        America Septentrionalis Novissima ... America Meridionalis accuratissima

      Amsterdam: P. Schenk, 1696. Copper-engraved map, full period hand colouring. Lovely 17th century map of North and South America with California as an island. This elegant map is noted for its cartouches designed by Romein de Hooghe. "The most notable feature of this map is the two separate titles for North and South America. These, it is believed, are etched by the noted artist Romein de Hooghe. The cartography reflects that typical of the period for Amsterdam. Five Great Lakes are shown, the two western ones being left open to the west, there is an old style depiction of the Mississippi basin, and California is depicted in a Foxe style insular format" (Burden). Burden, The Mapping of North America 722; McLaughlin, The Mapping of California as an Island 120; Tooley "California as an Island," 56 in Tooley, The Mapping of America.
