Sir David Lindesay
Glasgow: Robert Sanders, 1696. A scarce edition of this work in a pocket sized format. The entire text of this work is in blackletter.

Of The Papyngo is written in a familiar medieval manner. It is a tract full of admonition to the court and clergy.

B.[=BOLS?], J.K.
Forbes, Short history of the art of distillation 81 & p. 193; STCN 313068267 (2 copies); WorldCat (1 additional copy). Very rare first edition of an early handbook on distillation. In twenty chapters it describes a wide array of applications and techniques, from oil distillation to the production of brandy and Dutch gin. It includes a description of the fermentation of fruit, the technical jargon and information about distilling equipment. The author is also identified only as "I.K.B." but with a note indicating that he had been working as a distiller for forty years and was still active. Forbes indicates that he is not the same person as Jacob Bols, as has sometimes been supposed, but whether he is a relative or was not a Bols at all, we do not know. The art of distilling had long been discussed as an alchemists' secret, as part of the apothecary's trade and later as a scientific pursuit, but practitioners of the commercial distiller's trade generally passed on their knowledge by training apprentices rather than publishing practical handbooks. The present handbook and Pieter van Keulen's similar one of 1696 are among the few examples known. Minor waterstain at the the foot of the preliminary leaves and the engraved title-page slightly thumbed, but otherwise in very good condition. The binding is somewhat soiled and has a few minor defects, but is structurally sound. [Attributes: First Edition]

Whiston, William
R. Roberts for Benj. Tooke, London, 1696. FIRST EDITION OF WHISTON'S FAMOUS DESCRIPTION OF THE EARTH'S CREATION & GREAT FLOOD; a widely praised work well-received by both Newton and Locke. Near fine condition, complete with 7 plates & the frontispiece of the solar system. William Whiston (1667 - 1752) was an English theologian, historian, physicist, and mathematician. In 1701 he resigned his Rectorship and become Isaac Newton's substitute lecturer at Cambridge; in 1702 he succeeded Isaac Newton as Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge. Whiston's New Theory of the Earth was in many ways the first full-length popularization of the natural philosophy Newton espoused in the Principia. In this light, Whiston's volume is a "Newtonian alternative to the Cartesian theory of the earth that had been proposed by Thomas Burnet in 1681, according to which the earth was a cooling star that dried out and cracked open, releasing the subterranean waters to cause the Flood" (Linda Hall Library). Whiston prefaced his earth theory with an essay on the style of Genesis arguing, like Newton, for a more literal hermeneutic. Drawing upon Newton's work on comets, Whiston posited that the planetary system had solidified from comets attracted by the sun's gravitation. He argued that a catastrophic comet explained Noah's flood, specifically that the arrival of a divinely guided comet had initiated the diurnal rotation of the earth, transformed its orbit from circular to elliptical, and caused the deluge through the condensation of vapors from the comet's tail. He also identi … [Click Below for Full Description]

In alto al centro, nel riquadro centrale contenente la pianta prospettica della città, si trova inciso il titolo: La città di Napoli: Circondano la pianta 17 vedute raffiguranti luoghi della città e le isole di Ischia e di Procida. In basso al centro è inciso un cartiglio, privo id iscrizioni. Sotto la veduta prospettica si trova una legenda numerica composta da 85 rimandi a luoghi notabili della città. Nell’angolo inferiore destro l’imprint editoriale: Si Stampano, e si vendono dal Stampator Paci a S. Biagio Maggiore. Acquaforte. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, con margini, finemente colorata a mano, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Leggere pieghe di carta nella parte inferiore destra. Sconosciuta pianta prospettica della città di Napoli, stampata dall’editore e libraio napoletano Giovanni Francesco Paci. L’opera si presenta priva di data, ma l’attività editoriale dell’editore Giovan Fancesco Paci (con sede in Napoli in S. Biagio dei Librai) la colloca all’ultimo decennio del XVII secolo. Per l’analisi di questa carta, non descritta in nessuna delle bibliografie sulla città da noi consultate, non si può prescindere dall’esame della nota carta "gemella" di Paolo Petrini (anch’egli stampatore a S. Biagio dei Librari in Napoli), datata dai repertori al 1696-98 (cfr. Bellucci-Valerio, n. 97). Dal punto di vista cartografico le due opere derivano dalla grande pianta prospettica di Alessandro Baratta (1627 e successive repliche).

Aside from his illustrations and monographs, Verrien published a book entitled simply 'Collection of Emblems' in which he describes the manner in which he identifies emblems, executes his artistic plan, and how to provide a proper motto to support the figure. First published in 1685, this work would see numerous reissues into the 18th-century, including this 1696 second edition. These scarce 17th-century printings include thousands of illustrated figures. In 1696, Verrien changed the name of this work from the 1685 title of 'Livre Curiux et Utile' to the title of the present work. (Saunders, p.86). Illustrations in this book include emblems, figures, family crests, monograms, medallions, and more, each with explanations.Item number: #5165Price: $550VERRIEN, NicolasRecueil d'emblêmes devises, medailles, et figures hieroglyphiques, au nombre de plus de douze cent, avec leurs explications.

Sergeant, John.
Printed by W. Redmayne for the Author, and sold by Thomas Metcalf, 1696. Sergeant (1622-1707), a Catholic polemicist and disciple of Thomas White (alias Blacklo), was the author of three major works of philosophy: The Method to Science (1696), Solid Philosophy (1697), and Metaphysics (1700). These criticize what Sergeant termed "the idea," that is, the grounded epistemology of the Cartesians and John Locke. In opposition to their methodology, he based his work on "Aristotelian foundations and utilized the earlier syntheses of Thomas White and Kenelm Digby to argue against those modern theorists and against any pragmatic replacement of certainty by probability as philosophy's goal. In this respect Sergeant can be seen as having tried to stem the tide of mainstream modern thought" (ODNB). The appendix to this early work on the philosophy and methodology of science is "The grand controversy concerning formal mutation decided in favour of the peripatetick school" (pp. 374-429).

Sir David Lindesay
Glasgow: Robert Sanders, 1696. A scarce edition of this work in a pocket sized format. The entire text of this work is in blackletter. ESTC states that there are two contents leaves to the rear, this copy is lacking those and ends at page 264. Closely cut to page 25, with the catchword therefore illegible. The title page spells the author's name as Lindesay, although through time there have been many other spellings including Lindsay and Lyndsay. Sir David Lindsay was a Scottish poet and Lyon king of arms. The Lyon King of Arms was the highest heraldic office. His poetry reflects the spirit of the Renaissance, specifically as a makar. Of Lindsay's poems, he gained a great reputation for his writings. His longer poems represent the range of his literary talent. Lindsay's writings are regarded to be the first literary expression in Scotland of the Renaissance. Works to this volume include 'Of the Monarchie', 'Of the Papingo' and 'To The King's Grace'. Of The Papyngo is written in a familiar medieval manner. It is a tract full of admonition to the court and clergy. Lindsay is also famous for producing a Scottish roll of arms known as The Lindsay of the Mount Roll. This roll contains 400 Scottish coats of arms and forms the basis of the official Scots heraldic registry in use today. CONDITION In a full morocco binding with ornate gilt stamping to the spine and to the boards. Externally, smart with light rubbing to the extremities and to the head and tail of spine.

Exemplaire enrichi d'une importante clé manuscrite de l'époque (environ 210 annotations). Nous avons pu repérer quelques exemplaires de cette même édition dans lesquels la clé manuscrite ne dépassait guère une centaine d’occurrences. Cette dernière édition présent le texte définitif de La Bruyère, avec ses dernières retouches. Bayle dit qu'elle parut peu de jours après sa mort. L'auteur d'une clef manuscrite fixe la mort de La Bruyère au vendredi 11 mai 1696 et dit que cette édition parut trois semaines après sa mort. Cette édition est revue et corrigée, mais non augmentée. L'auteur avait considéré son oeuvre comme terminée à la huitième édition. C'est donc le texte de l'édition précédente, mais avec des variantes et des corrections.

He is known above all for his Fables, which provided a model for subsequent fabulists across Europe and numerous alternative versions in France, and in French regional languages. Fine copy of the first edition of La Fontaine's posthumous works: he had died the previous year. Much of the volume is in verse, and there appear to be three new fables added at the end.
