      A Paris Chez Christope Ballard. 1697 - 12mo (in 6s), 157 x 90 mms., pp. [xiv], 166 [167 - 1766 contents], woodcut of pantograph on page 8, contemporary calf, spine ornately gilt in compartments, morocco label; lacks leaves before title-page and after end of text, some minor marginal worming, joints cracked, top and base of spine worn, corners worn. A fair copy. First published in 1673 or 1674, Traite de Mignature proved to be very popular with aspiring artists, because of its detailed instructions on preparing paints and pigments. The first English translation appeared in 1729, The Art of Painting in Miniature. A diagram of a colour wheel was added to the edition published in 1708, making the work even more successful and useful. The attribution of the work to "Claude Boutet" was made by Joseph-Marie Quérard (1797-1865) in his his bibliographic dictionary, La France Litteraire (1826-1842), deriving from a pencil annotation of an edition of the work published in 1711. Otherwise, nothing seems to be known whatsoever about M. Boutet. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        "The secret history of Whitehall. From the restoration of Charles II. Down to the abdication of the late K. James. Writ at the request of a noble Lord, and conveyed to him in letters, by ________ late Secretary-Interpreter to the Marquess of Louvois, who by that means had the perusal of all the private minutes between England and France for many years. The whole consisting of secret memoirs, which have hitherto lain conceal'd, as not being discoverable by any other hand. Published from the original papers."

      London: R. Baldwin. 1697. "First edition, small 8vo, pp. [14], 80, 80, 80, 64, 80, 110; contemporary paneled calf with tasteful modern rebacking and red morocco label on spine, extremities worn and boards a little splayed, but overall good and sound. Jones (fl. 1676-1720), a captain in the English royal regiment of dragoons, spent much of his time on the continent, where he became fluent in modern languages and was appointed to serve the Marquis of Louvois. Jones published many works in his lifetime, but The Secret History is chief among them. It ""consists of a series of letters purporting to have been written by Jones to an English peer between January 1676 and February 1689, and professes to divulge the secret diplomatic transactions that had passed between the English and French courts during the previous twenty years. Little reliance can, however, be placed on these pretensions"" (DNB). Wing J934."

        Theses Adversus Balth. Bekkerum Circa Operationes Daemonum in Libro, Quem Vocat Die Bezauberte Welt.

      Literis Hakianis, Wittenberg 1697 - Unbound pamphlet. Small quarto. (7 1/2 x 6 inches). (16) p. Sewn, paper backstrip. No wrappers. Title page serves as front wrapper. The printed text of a disputation delivered to the University of Wittenberg on November 6, 1697, by one Johannes Christianus Bremer. The text is essentially a refutation of some of the arguments presented by Balthasar Bekker in "Die Betoverde Weereld." Bremer seems to argue the existence of demons and of their power and influence in earthly affairs, and suggests that to reject this is ipso facto to deny the existance of angels, and also of God, and to plunge into unholy atheism. Extremely scarce. The full title reads "Theses adversus Balth. Bekkerum circa operationes Daemonum in libro, quem vocat Die Bezauberte Welt gravissime errantem directae quas placido eruditorum examini d. 6. Nov. a. 1697 subjicient praeses M. Andr.

      Halle, 1697 - Judicial and theological opinions (in Latin and German) regarding the controversial marriage in 1666 of the castrato and court favorite, Bartolomeo de Sorlisi, with a young Dresden girl, Dorothy Lichtwer. The discovery of the marriage, which had the blessing of Johann Georg II, Elector of Saxony, provoked a cry of outrage in many circles, including the Lutheran theological establishment as well many in the legal community, and Sorlisi soon became the unfortunate victim of much abuse and mockery. Upon his death in 1672, the marriage was adnnulled in 1672, but the firestorm of controversy which erupted did not abate for many years to come. So controversial was the Sorlisi-Lichter marriage, however, that EUNUCHI CONIUGIUM went through a total of nine editions, of which this is the second. Editions followed of 1718, 1730, 1737, and 1759.

        Satires of Decimus Junius Juvenalis. Translated into English Verse by Mr. Dryden, and several other Eminent Hands. Together with the Satires of Aulus Persius Flaccus. Made English by Mr. Dryden. To Which Is Prefixid a Discourse Concerning the Original and Progress of Satire. by Mr. Dryden.

      London Jacob Tonson 1697 - Early issue. Adorned with sculptures, being sixteen finely engraved copper plates by Hollar, including the frontispiece, to illustrate each of the Satires and one additional engraved bust of Persius. Also with engraved half-titles to each of the Satires. 8vo, contemporary full speckled calf, sometime lont ago rebacked to period style with the spine featuring gilt ruled raised bands, one compartment with a dark green morocco label lettered and ruled in gilt, endleaves renewed. xo, 501, [3] pp. A well preserved copy. Some minor toning or foxing, more so to the title and frontispiece, binding with some normal age evidence. AN IMPORTANT TRANSLATION OF ONE OF THE GREAT CLASSICAL TEXTS. Jacob Tonson published The Satires of Decimus Junius Juvenalis and Aulus Persius Flaccus originally in 1693. Tonson assembled this complete translation of Juvenal's Satires by "various hands", but numbers 1, 3, 6, 10, and 16 were all done by Dryden himself. Number 7 was done by his son Charles, and 14 by his son John. The complete translation of Persius is by Dryden alone, and Dryden also wrote the substantial preface, the "Discourse concerning the original and progress of satire", in which he explains the history of the genre and gives a critique of its principal Latin practitioners. He also provides reflections on its modern use. While the sixteen Satires are translations rather than imitations, and generally preserved the original Roman allusions, there are a number of turns of phrase which reflect satirically upon William III. Doubtless both the tragic pessimism of Junius' tenth satire, and Persius's Stoicism in the face of Neronian terror, had a contemporary resonance for Dryden. No reader of Junius’ third satire could avoid hearing the translator's voice within its lines. The engraved plates are much in the same style as the somewhat more famous plates in Dryden’s ‘Virgil’, which was first published the same year as this edition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

In The Portland Vase, Robin Brooks takes us on a vivid journey across Europe and through the centuries, as this delicate piece of glass, less than ten inches in height, passes through the hands of a stunning cast of characters, including the first Roman emperor, Augustus; a notorious tomb raider; a reckless cardinal; a princess with a nasty gambling habit; the ceramics genius Josiah Wedgwood; the secretive Duchess of Portland; and a host of politicians, dilettantes, and scam artists. Rich with passion, inspiration, jealousy, and endless speculation, the story of The Portland Vase spans more than two thousand years and remains one of the art world's greatest enigmas.Ex-libris Charles de Brosses, comte de Tournay, baron de Montfalcon, seigneur de Vezins et de Prevessin (auteur des Lettres d'Italie).

      Antoine Dezallier, Paris 1697 - Hardcover. small 8vo. Two volumes. French text. (xxxii) 532pp & (xxviii) 520pp. Modern full leather with gilt rules and embellishments to boards and spine, raised bands and gilt titling to spine, marbled page edges, fresh endpapers.The 'Traité des superstitions selon l'Ecriture Sainte,' ('Treatise on Superstitions According to Holy Scripture') was one of the best known and comprehensive of what have been termed the "catalogs of superstitions." It was written by Jean Baptiste Thiers (1636-1703), a French theologian, to aid other churchmen in the identification of what would now be termed folk or popular religious and magical beliefs, so that they could be better refuted and suppressed. As such it was in some ways an encyclopedia of such beliefs, with much on magic, 'the black arts', folk-healers, curses, talismans, astrology and all forms of divination, exorcism etc. etc. This edition was considerably revised and expanded from the Fist Edition of 1679. A few light scratches to boards, light bump to lower edge of upper board of volume II, small biographical clipping about the author tipped onto first blank, light browning to margins, otherwise a sound and attractive VG+ set.

        The Works of Virgil: Containing His Pastorals, Georgics, and Aeneis. Translated into English Verse; by Mr Dryden

      London : Jacob Tonson, 1697 A good copy in contemporary full leather binding with frontispiece, title page in red and black inks, and 91 (of 101) full page engravings. This is the first illustrated edition of Dryden's famous translations of Virgil's works completed in 1696. The illustrations are spectacular - each dedicated to a subscriber who donated 5 guineas for the privilege. With frontispiece by M Vander Gucht (a flemish engraver working in England); title page; dedication to the Right Hon Lord Clifford 4pp; Life of Vergil 16pp; Preface to the Pastorals 12pp; Poems to Dryden 6pp; Lists of Subscribers [which also provide a plate index] 4pp; plate and text to Pastorals p 1-48; Dedication to Earl of Chesterfield 5pp; Essay on the Georgics 6pp; Georgics pp 49-147; Dedication (45pp); Aeneispp 201-619; Postscript to the Reader p621-623; Notes and Observations p625-640. The pagination between Georgics and Aeneis is odd in that the page numbers stop with Georgics and restart with Aeneis; the dedication is not paginated and the 'gap' is bigger than it should be (by about 10 pp). However, no content is missing from any of the sections listed. The contemporary panelled calf binding has been extensively repaired at some time, relaying what could be saved of the original calf to both boards and spine. The binding is in good condition. Internally there is a small ink signature of Jasper Radcliffe Cook to the top of the title page. There is a little worming to the bottom margin (not affecting text) which is noticeable from the title page to part way through the preface but is then a single small hole which looks like a dot. Around 4 leaves have small repaired margin tears; there is some page loss (but not content loss) from the bottom corner of pp 331 and 353 and the bottom margin of the plate at p550. The overall condition of the text and plates is good to very good. There are some browned sections, some offsetting from plates to text, and occasional marking, but text and plates are generally clean. 10 plates from the Georgics section are lacking - there is no sign that they were cut out, so it is possible they were lost prior to the point when the binding was repaired. Please enquire if you would like to see more images beyond the 5 allowed by the website.

        Recentissima Novi Orbis, Sive Americae Septentrionalis et Meridionalis Tabula

      Amsterdam 1697 - Rare issue of Allard's map of North and South America, the first to show important corrections to the mapping of the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River Valley. "The map of America by Allard is derived from that of Frederick de Wit, c. 1675" (Burden). Significantly, however, Allard corrects the mapping of the Great Lakes and Mississippi Valley. "The former are entirely re-engraved as are the nearby waterways off the St. Lawrence River including Lake Champlain, which is moved south-west. Lake Superior is now enclosed to the west as is Lac des Puans, which is renamed Lac Illinois, placing the previous toponym correctly in Green Bay. To the west an entirely new and more recent depiction of the Mississippi valley is inserted. This is derived from that of Louis Hennepin . published in 1697" (Burden). This is Burden's second state, with a ruled border surrounding the New Zealand inset but without the textual descriptions of climates between the neat line and gradients. It is the first state to show the important corrections noted above. Beyond the cartographic importance, the cartouche is especially attractive, with an allegorical figure of America seated within a sugar cane field inhabited by exotic animals and scenes relating to mankind's eternal search for gold. Burden, The Mapping of North America II: 724; McLaughlin, The Mapping of California as an Island , 132; Tooley, "California as an Island," in The Mapping of America 65. Copper-engraved map.
