        Memoirs of Edmund Ludlow Esq; Lieutenant General of the Horse, Commander in Chief of the Forces in Ireland, One of the Council of State, and a Member of the Parliament which began on November 3, 1640

      Switzerland: Printed at Vivay, 1698. First Edition. Full-Leather. Very Good. 1698-99. viii, 1-430, 435-878, "402" [400] p. + index. Engraved frontispiece portrait of the author. Rebacked with original spines. Edmund Ludlow (c. 1617 - 1692) was an English parliamentarian, best known for his involvement in the execution of Charles I and these memoirs, published posthumously. Ludlow's memoirs are an invaluable source for the attitudes of the anti-Cromwell faction within the Parliamentary side of the English Civil War. After the Restoration, Ludlow lived an uncertain life on the Continent, as did many other opponents of King Charles.

        Accord de différentes loix de la nature qui avoient jusqu';ici paru incompatibles" (Accord between different laws of Nature that seemed incompatible) in Mémoires de l'Académie Royale des Sciences Année 1744, 1748, pp. 417-426

      FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST VERBAL FORMULATION OF THE PRINCIPLE OF LEAST ACTION, also known as the Maupertuis Principle. French mathematician Pierre-Louis Moreau de Maupertuis (1698-1759) was the first to propose the principle of least action for light, as the result that minimizes the integral of the speed over the path taken. Maupertuis felt confident in this proposal because he found that it produces the same result as Snell's law (the ratios of the sines of the angle of incidence and refraction are the same as the ratio of the speeds of light in the material). Maupertuis first stated his proposal in a presentation to the French Academy of Sciences titled "Accord de différentes loix de la nature qui avoient jusqu'ici paru incompatibles" or "Accord between different laws of Nature that seemed incompatible" (Mémoires de l'Académie Royale des Sciences Année 1744 pp. 417-426, 1748). In his paper, Maupertuis proposed a general idea that is even more important than the specifics of the principle: "Nature, in making its effects, always acts by the simplest means possible." Maupertuis had previously presented a paper to the Paris Academy of Sciences titled "La Loi du repos des corps" or "Law of Bodies at Rest" (which we also offer) (Mémoires de l'Académie Royale des Sciences Année 1740 pp. 170-176, 1742), in which he proposed the conditions required for a system of bodies to remain at rest: "If there is one constant force on all the masses, and its center is at an infinite distance from the system, the center of gravity of the system must be as far as possible from, or as near as possible to, this center, for equilibrium to subsist.". CONDITION & DETAILS: Paris: De L'imprimerie Royale. Light circular bibliotheque stamp on title page; no other ex-libris markings whatsoever. 4to (10.25 x 8; 256 x 200mm). [12], 552, [2]. 1 Frontispiece. 18 copperplates engravings and in-text illustrations throughout (including the Maupertuis paper). Handsomely bound in full calf. 5 raised bands at the spine, elaborately gilt-tooled in the compartments. 2 gilt-lettered, red morocco spine labels. Solidly and very tightly bound. Very slight toning throughout; fine condition.

        St. Menas receiving his martyrdom at the hands of three soldiers. Engraved caption at bottom: Stus Mennas Mart. cuius corpus veneratur in Aurea Valle / A peste, fame, et bello, per intercessionem Sancti Mennae libera nos Domine

      [Orval, Belgium?, before 1698, possibly 1666]. Sheet size 182 x 152 mm., matted, glazed and framed. The unsigned engraving with contemporary or near-contemporary hand-coloring, the background of the upper portion of the engraving carefully cut out and replaced by a plain paper ground (a crown with feather from the original engraving cut out separately and mounted at upper left), the border colored yellow, gold- and silver-embroidered silk fabric raiments applied to the figures of the saint and the soldiers, each garment outlined and highlighted in black thread or ribbon. Some abrasions affecting the flesh areas of the image apparently due to a volatile or acidic coloring material, a few worm[?]holes in lower portion.*** The print shows St. Menas, the Egyptian saint, leaning against a tree, serene in his martrydrom, a soldier to his right raising a scourge to flog him, while two other soldiers apply further ghastly torture to the Saint using fire and a double prong. On a stone tablet in the lower left foreground is an engraved dedication (wormed and partly illegible) to Henri de Meugen, Abbot of the Benedictines of Orval, Belgium, from 1639 until his death in 1698. The numbers 66 appear at the end of the inscription, possibly the date [16]66. The unsigned engraving was almost certainly produced before the Abbot?'s death in 1698. The collage with its embroidered decoration, in which silk threads in white and blue are woven into the gold-threaded armor of the soldiers, while the Saint?'s loincloth is silver, may have been created somewhat later, in the 18th century. St Menas, patron Saint of Alexandria, protector of merchants and caravans, was venerated as a miracle worker not only among Egyptian Copts, who built a complex of shrines to him in the desert near Alexandria, but also in various Western religious centers in Europe, including Rome, York, and Hereford (cf. Oxford Dictionary of Saints, 2004, p. 366). This richly embroidered and colored engraving testifies to his status as an object of worship in the Benedictine Abbey of Orval, near Trèves, and it may have served as an active object of veneration in the Abbey itself. Prints which were used as cult images were occasionally adorned with collage materials in the 17th and 18th centuries, in order to increase their splendor and visual weight. While examples of outright embroidered textile ?"clothing?" are better known in 19th-century French costume prints, the technique was also used for earlier devotional images: see, for example, a 17th or 18th-century French mixed media collage with engraving and embroidered decoration, showing St Joseph holding the infant Christ, held by the Loyola University Museum of Art, and reproduced in the exhibit catalogue by Suzanne Karr Schmidt, Altered and Adorned (Art Institute of Chicago, 2011), pp. 67-68.

[72]ff. including mezzotint portrait by Smith after Closterman, allegorical engraved title attributed to Abraham Bloteling (1640-90) with pasted-on English title in cartouche as usual, second engraved title with vignette by Sturt. 114 plates (2 folding), 105 designed by Gérard de Lairesse [1640-1711] & probably engraved by Bloteling, 9 mostly drawn & engraved by M. van der Gucht. London: Sam. Smith & Benj. Walford, 1698 [printed at the Sheldonian Theater, Oxford]. 568357 mm. Paneled calf ca. 1698, worn, rebacked, corners repaired, endpapers renewed. Portrait, which is often missing, trimmed & mounted as always. First few leaves frayed, portrait soiled and with tears repaired, folding plates partially backed in paper to repair tears, tears in a few other plates, light foxing & spotting as in virtually all copies due to mineral deposits in the paper. Good to very good copy. Early ownership inscription on front endpaper.First Edition in English of the original plates designed for Govard Bidloo by Gérard de Lairesse, a painter who rivaled Rembrandt in popularity in his time. G-M 385 cites the original issue of the plates with Latin text by Bidloo in 1685. Bidloo's text, however, was widely criticized, and because of this Cowper arranged to supply an entirely new text in English to accompany a reissue of the original engravings. This reissue was limited to 300 copies. The new English text was clearly superior, and the basis for later Latin editions. Cowper, however, did not acknowledge Bidloo, even going so far as to paste over Bidloo's name with his own in the cartouche on the engraved allegorical title. This action resulted in a bitter plagiarism dispute between the two, one of the most famous in medical history. In 1700 Bidloo went so far as to publish his Gulielmus Cowper, criminalis literari citatus, coram tribunali attacking Cowper in considerable detail."Elegantly done and artistically perfect" (Choulant / Frank 250), the atlas is considered the finest of the Baroque period, and one of the greatest artistic anatomies of all time. Despite imperfections from the point of view of dissection, the anatomical studies reflect much that is good, including early depictions of skin and hair from observation with a microscope. Dumaitre, Gérard de Lairesse (1982). Hofer 146. Enc. World Art IV 753, V 436, VII 661. Russell 211.

        Relation d'un Voyage fait en 1695, 1696 et 1697, aux Côtes d'Afrique, détroit de Magellan, Brezil, Cayenne et Isles Antilles, par une Escadre des Vaisseaux du Roy, commandée par M. de Gennes

      Paris: dans l'Isle du Palais et G. Saugrain, 1698. First edition.. Endpapers show a little marginal browning, light wear and a few age cracks to spine, the contents are very bright and clean; a tight copy in very good condition in an attractive contemporary binding.. Pp. (12), 219, (1); additional engraved title page, 29 engraved maps and plates, 9 of which are folding. Contemporary speckled calf leather, spine with 5 raised bands, red morocco title label in one compartment lettered in gilt, the five remaining compartments with elaborate gilt decorations, sm 8vo (184 x 105 mm). This is the rare first edition of an expedition undertaken in 1695-1697 to found a French settlement in the Straits of Magellen - that project ultimately failed. The expedition additionally visited the coast of Africa, Brazil and French Guiana (Cox II, p. 264). This account of the expedition is especially noteworthy for details of natural history subjects and for the accuracy of Froger's charts. Froger went on this voyage at the age of eighteen (Hill Collection, 2004, no. 656). The work contains one of the earliest maps of the port of Rio de Janeiro. See also Sabin 26001. Armorial bookplate of Charles Izard Manigault (1795-1874), grandson of Gabriel Manigault (1704-1781), a rice planter and businessman from South Carolina who was considered one of the wealthiest men in the colonies. It is known that between 1817 and 1823, Charles Manigault travelled widely in Asia, Australia and South America. On his return to the United States he entered the family business as a plantation owner. He was also an art collector- his collection of family portraits was considered the finest in America (from Emory Rare Books).

        Chronicon, e manuscriptis nunc primum editum a Godofredo Guilielmo Leibnitio.

      Leipzig, Nikolaus Förster 1698 - 2 parties en un fort vol. petit in-4 carré, [6] ff. n. ch. (titre, préface), [294] pp. mal chiffrées 292 (il y a deux ff. différents chiffrés 183-84) ; [590] pp. mal chiffrées 592 (il y a saut de chiffrage de 582 à 585), demi-basane fauve à coins, dos lisse, pièce de titre cerise, tranches bleues (rel. du XVIIIe s.). Coiffes un peu frottées, rousseurs. Edition originale, dont l'éditeur n'est autre que l'illustre philosophe Leibniz (1646-1716), qui s'intéressait aussi à l'histoire, tant par le biais du droit, et de la publication, entamée dès 1690, de textes juridiques médiévaux, qu'à travers la commande effectuée en 1685 par l'Electeur de Hanovre de composer une grande histoire de la Maison de Brunswick. Très mal connu, Aubry ou Albéric de Trois-Fontaines semble l'auteur d'une grande chronique universelle courant jusqu'à l'année 1241 (et originale seulement pour les années 1220-1241) ; en tout cas, le texte présenté est mis sous son nom. Le problème est que la tradition manuscrite adopte deux formes assez différentes dans le détail : la première famille paraît être l'oeuvre d'un moine champenois (l'abbaye de Trois-Fontaines est sise dans le diocèse de Châlons) s'intéressant particulièrement à l'histoire de sa province natale, et spécialement aux familles nobles ; la seconde provient du monastère de Neufmoutiers, près de Huy (pays de Liège), abonde en détails locaux peu exportables. En fonction de leurs a-priori, les historiens cherchent à résoudre comme ils peuvent cette dichotomie, souvent au prix d'hypothèses que rien ne vient vérifier. SHF, Molinier, V, 170.

        Vreden.

      - Fysiognomiken var en lära med sina rötter i antiken. Den försökte utröna sambandet mellan själsliga tillstånd och kroppsliga uttryck och fick betydelse även för målarkonsten. Den franske hovmålaren Charles Le Brun utgav en inflytelserik traktat i ämnet, Conference [.] sur l'expression generale & particuliere (1698), som synes ha påverkat även Gillberg. Två ambitiöst utförda fysiognomiska studier av hans hand finns bevarade, dels Förskräckelsen (la Frayeur, privat ägo), dels denna ståtliga teckning, som representerar Vreden (la Colère). I sin bok beskriver Le Brun hur denna känsla uttrycks (här i John Williams' engelska översättning från 1734):»When Anger seizes the soul, it is expressed by red and fiery eyes; the pupil wild and flashing, the eyebrows alike, either lifted up or depress'd; the forehead very frowning, with wrinkles between the eyes; the nostrils open and extended; the lips pressing together, the under one rising above the upper, leaving the corners of the mouth somewhat open, and forming a cruel and disdainful smile» (1). Fysiognomisk studie. Teckning i svart krita med förhöjningar i vitt. Signerad »J. Gillberg delineavit». 40 × 32,5 cm. Inramad. (1) Charles Le Brun, A method to learn to design the passions, proposed in a conference on their general and particular expression, London 1734, s. 45. | Franska originaltexten: »Lorsque la colere s'empare de l'ame, celui qui ressent cette passion, a les yeux rouges & enflâmés, la prunelle égarée & étincelante, les sourcils tantôt abattus, tantôt élevés l'un comme l'autre, le front paroîtra ridé fortement, des plis entre les yeux, les narines paroîtront ouvertes & élargies, les lèvres se pressant l'une contre l'autre, & la lèvre de dessous surmontera celle de dessus, laissant les coins de la bouche un peu ouverts, formant un ris cruel & dédaigneux» (s. 41).)
