      Lisboa, na Officina de Miguel Deslandes, Impressor de S. Magestade, 1698. 4to.; 16 hs., 259 pp. Encuadernación en piel marbreada, de la época, con lomera profusamente ornada.

Calvo Rigual: «Traducciones de Savonarola en España, con noticia de algunas desconocidas», Philologia Hispalensis, 2008]. La obra aparece aquí a caballo de las polémicas imágenes históricas de Savonarola, entre la de un falso profeta apocalíptico y herético, incendiario de libros e intransigente fustigador de la moral pública, y la que por el contrario lo supone un hombre de intensa experiencia religiosa, sensible intérprete de la espiritualidad de su tiempo, lo cual evidenciaría que la reforma que intentó no provenía de intenciones políticas y seculares, sino de un apasionado amor por Cristo y de una intensa necesidad interior. Un libro complejo, a descifrar, dentro de una intrincada tradición carmelitana.

      Amsterdam: Im Jahr 1698.. 95,[1]pp. Small octavo. 19th century paper over boards. Engraved title vignette. Some surface chipping to binding at extremities, occasional early ink annotations (including the scoring through of a name and an attribute of another name on the dedication page), occasional light early underscores, two terminal text leaves a bit creased and torn at gutter, with no loss, but a good or better copy. One of two 1698 editions in German of Lead's A MESSAGE TO THE PHILADELPHIAN SOCIETY (London, 1696). The other has a completely different setting of the title-page, with a large floral device rather than the detailed allegorical engraving that appears in this copy. Lead (1624-1704), an English mystic and visionary heavily influenced by the writings of Jacob Boehme, gathered around her a circle of like minded individuals formalized as the Philadelphia Society for the Advancement of Piety and Divine Philosophy, which flourished until the years immediately following her death in 1704. The Society oversaw the publication of her works, and fostered converts in Europe, as well as in North America. This work includes an explanation of the Society's purpose as well as its constitution. Her writings had some influence on later generations of serious religious thinkers, as well as on esoterics of various flavors and a genuine crackpot or two. Lead's original English publications tend to be quite rare -- ESTC locates only 6 copies of the London printing of this text. And although OCLC/Worldcat finds a decent number of copies of this German text held by European institutions scattered among several records, Bethel College and Duke are the only North American locations recorded there for copies of one or the other original edition.

        Les Malades de Belle de belle Humeur ou Lettres Divertissantes ecrites de Chaudray.

      Michel Brunet, Paris 1698 - 12mo (6) ff., 424 (i.e. 432) pp. Bound in contemporary French mottled calf, covers triple gilt ruled, spine in six compartments with red morocco title label. Covers and corners somewhat abraded, engraved ex-libris Maurice Villaret on front-end paste down. Marbled end papers and edges; 1 large folding engraving of Dr Ozanne in his consulting room. Some leaves toned and an occasional spot in margin, otherwise very good. Very rare second edition (first 1697) of an enigmatic work that ranges in genre and subject matter from the epistolary novel to poetry, fictitious dialogues, artistic criticism, summaries of classical literary works, and even genuine letters between two important female writers of 17th C France. The work offers an intriguing research project in an age which championed the classical ideal of rigidly self-contained and well-defined genres. The volume opens with a description of the author¿s convalescence in the care of one Dr. Christophe Ozanne, an unlicensed rural physician in Chaudray (1633-1713), followed by a series of letters describing Ozanne, his home, his patients and his remedies. Curiously, in the present copy this first part of the work is preceded by a large folding plate, depicting Dr. Ozanne in his chambers. As we have located the plate in no other copy of the work, it is almost certainly an interpolation, most likely extracted from a work of Ozanne¿s, which we have been unable to identify. Bordelon¿s narrative is overtaken by the literary ephemera that makes this volume such a puzzle, not only for the heterogenous nature of its contents, but also the level of critical intelligence: poetry, a list of mirabilia, elementary plot summaries of Virgil and Homer, an appraisal of Italian vs. French music, etc. Yet the most significant of Bordelon¿s digressions is not fictitious at all: a 20-page excerpt of actual correspondence between the famed female novelist Madeleine de Scudéry and the poet Catherine Descartes, niece of René, including a poem by Scudéry that appears here in print for the first time. The Paris chaplain Abbè de Bordelon (1653-1730) enjoyed great celebrity during his lifetime, publishing dozens of works on a variety of topics. OCLC: Newberry. * Not in Cioranescu.

      Utrecht. 1698.. [70],389pp. plus folding map and four folding plates. 12mo. Modern vellum over boards, spine stamped, all edges red. Internally clean. Near fine. First edition. This edition of Hennepin's writings is a continuation of his NOUVELLE DECOUVERTE... of the previous year. In this work he added new material drawn from contemporary sources on Indian manners and customs and various North American travels. The first eight chapters describe the adventures and murder of La Salle, while the last concern the British treatment of the Recollets after the taking of Quebec in 1629. Lengthy passages are taken from Le Clercq's ETABLISSEMENT DE LA FOY of 1688. Despite the fact that Hennepin has been severely and justly criticized for imposture and plagiarism, his works, according to Thwaites, still stand as "invaluable contributions to the sources of American history; they deserve study, and to this day furnish rare entertainment. We can pardon much to our erratic friar, when he leaves to us such monuments as these." No other narratives of French exploration in the interior of North America enjoyed as wide a popularity or stimulated as much controversy and criticism among later scholars as those of Hennepin. A Recollet missionary, Father Hennepin went to New France in 1675, and in 1678 he set out with La Salle to explore the fertile basin of the Mississippi River. While La Salle turned back to raise funds to continue the voyage, Hennepin went on to ascend the river from Fort Crevecoeur (Chicago) and penetrated farther northwest into the interior than any white man to that time. He discovered St. Anthony's Falls near the present site of Minneapolis, and provided the first eyewitness account of Niagara Falls. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 698/101. ARENTS 432. CHURCH 774n. HARISSE 177.

Engraved plate adjacent to title-page with six additional folding plates. The two maps are not present. This is the so-called Tonson issue with Tonson being complete on first line of publishers on the title-page. The true first edition was the Utrecht edition in French of 1697. Two books in one: (22), 243; (32), 228. Plates include views of Niagara Falls, a wild bison, La Salle's sailing vessel Le Griffon, the murther(sic) of La Salle, the cruelty of the savage Iroquois, and the taking of Quebec by the English. Plates are intact, some with browning at edges, some toning and foxing, moreso on the first two plates, a few closed tears without paper loss, . Text is generally clean with mild to moderate foxing, never heavy. According to Howes, the first plate was the first view of Niagara Falls ever made. The title continues, "Also, the manners, customs, and languages of the several native Indians, and the advantage of commerce with those different nations; with a continuation giving an account of the Sieur de la Salle upon the mines of St Barbe, &c. The taking of Quebec by the English; with the advantages of a shorter cut to China and Japan". Father Louis Hennepin (1626-1705) was a Catholic priest and missionary, who accompanied La Salle on his trip of exploration into the interior of North America beginning in 1679. He is credited with being the first European to set foot ashore in Hannibal, Missouri. See Howes H416.. First English Edition, Second Issue. Full Contemporary Calf. Moderate Cover Wear./No Jacket.

Si è cercato di essere accurati nella descrizione in modo che fosse completa e soddisfacente, stante la complessità dell'insieme. V'è da aggiungere che il tomo, nel "pagorum et Comitatuum., è illustrato con vignette incise in rame, che alcune carte recano nei margini glosse a pennino d'antica mano, che il testo, specie nella prima delle due opere, è in latino ed in parte minore in tedesco. Eccezionale insieme della cui importanza storica e filologica non v'è da dubitare (lo studio delle cronache antiche raccolte ed impresse da manoscritti molto spesso inediti sono il sale della ricerca storiografica). Malgrado le ricerche non si è trovato riscontro di un insieme quale quello che si presenta. Il volume, coi tagli colorati, è in ottimo stato, con davvero rare ed insignificanti mende, qualche carta leggerissimamente brunita. Notevole ed importante.

Fryer was a surgeon in the service of the East India Company for nine years and travelled extensively on the Coromandel and Malabar coasts. He describes well the cities of Surat and Bombay, the life and trade there as well as at Madras. Nearly sixteen years elapsed before he could be persuaded to publish the story of his wanderings. At length piqued at the frequent appearance of translations of foreign, especially French, books of travel, in which English industry and enterprise were decried, he issued a handsome folio," (Cox, 'Reference Guide To The Literature Of Travel, Vol I, p. 280). "As a surgeon in the service of the East India Company, he left England in December 1672 and arrived at Masulipatam in June 1673. He spent the following four years on the Coromandel and Malabar coasts, visiting and describing Surat, Bombay and Madras. He also travelled to Gokarna, Karwar, Goa, and ventured inland to Junnar. He was in Persia between 1677 and 1679, then returned to India until 1681... [his] account of the places he visited is accurate and reliable with numerous anecdotes told with a fine sense of humour'' (Howgego, 'Encyclopedia of Exploration to 1800', p.406).

      London: Printed for, and sold by A. Baldwin, 1698.. [8],55,[13],34pp. plus folding engraved map. Contemporary ruled sheep, with 8 leaves of original printed binder's waste sheets (probably Wing G61). Minor wear along front joint, but a near pristine copy in original binding. In a cloth chemise and half morocco and cloth slipcase. Provenance: Frank T. Siebert (Sotheby's New York, May 21, 1999, lot 122); Jay Snider (bookplate). One of the first extensive promotional tracts for New Jersey and Pennsylvania, based on the author's fifteen years there, and dedicated to William Penn. An enthusiastic promoter, Thomas describes the natural products of the country and the extent of settlement which had already taken place, as well as giving a good account of the Indian tribes of the area and specimens of the Delaware Indian language. He particularly encourages poor Englishmen to move there, and gives one of the first descriptions of Philadelphia. "Thomas had lived in America for about fifteen years, and the information contained in this book is the result of his own observations and experience. It was written to induce the immigration of all who wished to better their worldly condition, and especially of the poor who might subsist in West Jersey 'without either begging or stealing.' He gives an account of the natural products of the country and the improvements already made and in progress, as well as of the modes of life among the Indians and the prevailing intercourse between them and the settlers. In the Preface the author says: 'Nor is there the least question or doubt to be made, but this Noble Spot of Earth will thrive exceedingly'" - Church. In addition to the geographic and ethnographic information it provides, Thomas' text also recognizes a nascent population boom that would sustain growth and development in the region. He writes: "Jealousie among Men is here very rare, and Barrenness among Women hardly to be heard of, nor are old Maids to be met with; for all commonly Marry before they are Twenty Years of Age, and seldom any young Married Woman but hath a Child in her Belly, or one upon her Lap."

        El Nuevo Apostol de Galicia, religioso Capuchino, y Misionario Apostolico en la America, y Europa [Carabantes]

      First edition of one of the very few and earliest sources of information on the Caribes and the Provinces of Caracas and Cumana. 1698. Madrid. Oficina de la viuda de Melchor Alvarez. In 8vo (200 mm x 152 mm).  12 ff. + 507 + 12 ff. & portrait of Carabantes sorrunded by American natives. Contemporary limp vellum, remnants of ties, spine lettered in ink, slightly soiled, else fine, a most attractive binding. Worm holes to several leaves at the beginning, some affecting a little text, a few foxing spots and damp staining, else a remarkably fresh and clean copy. First edition; an exceedingly rare work on the life of this 17th century Capuchin monk in Venezuela and the Caribbean. Carabantes (1628 ? 1694) was one of the first Capuchin missionaries in America; although his name was Velazquez, he changed his name for that of his home town in 1645, when entering the order. In 1657, he arrived in the Island of Margarita (Venezuela), from there he went on to Caracas and Cumana, where he was able to evangelize the Caribes, a tribe notorious for its cruelty and ferocity. As often, the missionary learned the natives tongue and wrote subsequently a vocabulary for the missionaries. His stay in the region lasted for 9 years, after which he had to travel back to Spain to defend his fellow missionaries; after that, he planned to return to the Americas, but his superiors decided to keep him in Spain, where death found him short after. It is attributed to him the conversion of five ?caciques? (denomination for the chiefs of the tribes). It is with little doubt one of the few, and more primitive, sources of information extant on several Provinces of Venezuela and local tribes amongst them, the Caribes, Cuacas, Tapies, etc. A copy of the ?Copia de Carta escrita al Excelentissimo Señor Marques de Aytona? published in 1666 and written by Carabantes, is only registered as having appeared for sale by Maggs in the 20´s; no auction record is found for this work.

      Oxoniæ [i.e. Oxford]: E Theatro Sheldoniano ... Typis Jvnianis, An. Dom 1698.. [8],168,32pp. Large octavo. Quarter modern black morocco and marbled boards, raised bands, gilt label. Engraved frontis, headpiece, and initial. Top margins very occasionally a trace dusty, otherwise a very good, crisp copy. First edition of this collection of translations into Anglo-Saxon of selections from the Old Testament and Apocrypha, edited by Edward Thwaites. The translations of the Heptateuch and Job are ascribed to Aelfric. The fine frontispiece and headpiece are the work of M. Burghers. "Thwaites's most important contribution to Anglo-Saxon studies was his 1698 edition of hitherto unedited parts of the Old Testament in Old English, including Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, and the book of Job, together with the apocryphal Judith and the Gospel of Nicodemus. ... Although some of his contemporaries criticized Thwaites's edition — partly because it included apocryphal material, partly for its lack of a Latin translation and notes — it was for its time a ground- breaking enterprise and one that was not repeated until 1922, when S. J. Crawford edited the Heptateuch afresh, using a different base manuscript. Thwaites's edition had been based on Bodleian MS Laud misc. 509, and his text was reprinted, with some emendations, by C. W. M. Grein in 1872. Thwaites dedicated his edition to George Hickes, at that time still proscribed as a nonjuror, and this caused some political embarrassment to the vice-chancellor, who threatened to suppress the edition unless Thwaites cut out the dedication. He bluntly refused — and prevailed" - DNB. ESTC R4371. WING B2198. DARLOW & MOULE 1606.

        The Whole Duty of Man According to the Law of Nature

      1698. Pufendorf, Samuel von [1632-1694]. [Motte, Benjamin, Translator]. The Whole Duty of Man According to the Law of Nature. Now Made English. London: Benj. Motte for Charles Harper and John Jones, 1698. [xxxii], 208, 211-258, 257-336 pp. Complete; leaf a8 is blank. Octavo (7" x 4-1/2"). Contemporary paneled calf, raised bands to spine. Light rubbing to boards, moderate rubbing to extremities, rear joint starting, hinges cracked, front and rear free endpapers lacking, light toning to text. Early owner signature to front endleaf (of Jane Hamilton), another to head of title page (of J. Jones), interior otherwise clean. A nice copy. * Second English-language edition. First published in 1672 in Latin as De Officio Hominis et Civis, this is a synopsis of Pufendorf's De Jure Naturae et Gentium, a landmark work that proposed a thorough system of private, public, and international law based on natural law. Beginning with a consideration of fundamental legal ideas and their various divisions, Pufendorf proceeds to a discussion of the validity of customs, the doctrines of necessity and innate human reason. It is significant in part because it develops principles introduced by Grotius and Hobbes. Unlike Hobbes, Pufendorf argued that peace, not war, was the state of nature, and he proposed that international law was not restricted to Christendom. Motte translated and published the first English-language edition in 1691. English Short-Title Catalogue R5550. Sweet & Maxwell, A Legal Bibliography of the British Commonwealth 1:598 (74).

        INFANTE D. PEDRO. LIVRO DO INFANTE D. PEDRO DE Portugal, o qual andou nas Sete partidas do Mundo.

      - Feyto por Gomes de Santo Estevaõ, hum dos doze que foraõ em sua companhia. LISBOA. Na Officina de Domingos Carneyro. Anno 1698. In 8.º de 19x14,5 cm. com 31 pags. Encadernação recente inteira de pele com ferros a ouro nas pastas. Ilustrado com bela vinheta tipográfica com as armas reais portuguesas gravadas na folha de rosto. Exemplar com ex-libris oleográfico da coleção Rocha Madahil, manchas de humidade e leves restauros marginais. Obra muito famosa especialmente no estrangeiro, para tal bastante contribui-o ter sido escrita em estilo popular. Relata as viagens do Infante D. Pedro de Portugal, efetuadas entre 1424 e 1428. O mesmo foi o 2.º filho de D. João I Mestre de Avis e primeiro Duque de Coimbra. O infante D. Pedro foi regente de Portugal durante a menoridade de D. Afonso V, filho de D. Duarte, seu sobrinho. Morreu na Batalha de Alfarrobeira, travada contra os partidários de D. Duarte. As edições desta obra (cento e doze em português e castelhano 1520-1912) são e sempre foram muito raras e procuradas, de grande curiosidade bibliográfica pois apresentam muitas variantes tipográficas. Sobre esta quarta edição em português Inocêncio diz ser a mais antiga que viu, mas a primeira em português publicou-se em 1602. Francis M. Rogers, List of Editions of the Libro n.º 34. "Copy in the Greenlee Collection of Newberry Library. There are also copies in Torre do Tombo, the library of Comandante Ernesto Vilhena, [extinta] and with minor differences on title-page, the library of Visconde da Trindade, [extinta]. The edition is mentioned, among other places, in the Catálogo Biblioteca Tavares de Macedo, [extinta]. Livraria Biblarte, cat. I, 318. [Lisboa 1956. Muito Raro 1.500$00]" Inocêncio III, 149. "GOMES DE SANCTO ESTEVAM, que se diz ter sido um dos doze criados que acompanharam o infante D. Pedro, filho d'el-rei D. João I, em suas longinquas peregrinações, começadas segundo a opinião vulgar dos nossos historiadores em 1424 (mas que o sr. Abbade de Castro, sem duvida mais bem informado, faz datar de 1416). Livro do infante D. Pedro que andou as quatro partidas do mundo. Lisboa, por Antonio Alvares 1554. 4.º. Anda aqui dobrado engano, porque o impressor Antonio Alvares não exercia ainda por este tempo a arte typographica, e só principiam a apparecer edições suas muitos annos depois do indicado. Observarei a proposito, que José Soares da Silva (nas Mem. d'elrei D. João I, tomo I, pag. 318) diz mui claramente, que a edição mais antiga que encontrára do Auto d o Infante D. Pedro (que de certo assim se intitulou nas primeiras que sahiram, e pelo que vejo foi Barbosa o primeiro que mudou este titulo no de Livro) fôra uma traducção castelhana, impressa em Burgos em 1564, por Filippe Junti: tudo isto torna para mim problematica a existencia da tal edição de 1554, em quanto não descobrir exemplar d'ella, com que possa resolver as duvidas que me occorrem. Pela minha parte declaro, que ainda não consegui ver edição d'este papel, mais antiga que a de Lisboa, por Domingos Carneiro, 1698. 4.º de 31 pag. Depois d'esta vi outra, ibi, por Manuel Fernandes da Costa 1739. 4.º de 31 pag. Outra, ibi, por Francisco Borges de Sousa 1767. 4.º de 20 pag. Outra, ibi, por Simão Thaddeo Ferreira 1794. 4.º e outras já do presente seculo, de que não tenho tomado nota por falta de opportunidade. Quanto ás traducções castelhanas (se é que não foi n'esta lingua, que a obra se imprimiu originalmente) acho apontadas em Barbosa a sobredita edição de 1564, o mais duas, ambas feitas ao que parece em Sevilha, por Domingos de Robertis 1595. 4.º, e 1626. 4.º No catalogo da livraria de Lord Stuart, vejo tambem citada outra com o titulo: Historia del infante D. Pedro de Portugal, el qual anduvo las siete partidas del mundo. Sevilha, sem anno, 4.º; edição differente das indicadas por Barbosa, e talvez mais antiga que ellas. As edições que vi, e comparei entre si, têem muitas variantes, e differem notavelmente em vocabulos e phrases, porque cada um dos editores foi emendando

        Voyages and Discoveries in South America. The first up the River Amazons to Quito in Peru, and back again to Brazil… by Christopher D´Acugna. The second up the River of Plata… by Mons. Acarete. The third from Cayenne into Guiana… by M. Grillet and Bechame

      First English edition of travels into Brazil, Guiana and the River Plate. 1698. London. Printed for S. Buckley. In 8vo (185 mm x 112 mm). VIII + 190 + 1 ff + 79 + 2 ff + 68 + 2 folding maps. Later full dark green crimson morocco, spine gilt, inner dentelle gilt, signed Zaehnsdorf, excellent condition. Folio iv/v with stain, slightly browned as always, both maps mounted on guards and backed, wide margins, nice copy. First English edition. Illustrated with two folding maps: “the course of the river of Amazons” and “the Provinces of Paraguay and Tucuman”, the first (by Sanson d´Abbeville) is only found in this English edition. According to Hill “The work of Acu?bishop of Caracas, tells of the Spanish expedition under Pedro Teixeira which left Quito in 1639 and descended the whole course of the Amazon to Para”. In 1578, the Portuguese king fell in the battle of Alc?r Quibir; he having no successors, the throne became vacant, hence beginning two years of disputes over the crown. By 1580, Phillip II of Spain had incorporated Portugal to his realm. Under this period of unification, Brazil was part of the Spanish-Portuguese Empire; because of this, the prospect of an alternative route of transport was thought possible –thus avoiding the much dangerous route through the Magellan Straits; as a result, an expedition lead by Pedro de Teixeira was undertaken in 1639 to investigate the viability of a commercial route going through the Brazilian Amazons. Acu?as a Jesuit priest, rector of the Jesuit who accompanied Teixeira´s in his expedition; in his relation, Acu?escribes flora, fauna and his observations during his journey. This account is one of the most important and earliest descriptions of the region. Acarete was a French traveler who accompanied Acu?n his voyage to South America; they first made port at Buenos Aires with a commercial destiny, from there, they went to Potos?y the way of C?ba and Tucum?–making way across the Jesuit Missions-; it is one of the first relations to describe Buenos Aires. The second and third parts have separate titles. Provenance, from the collection of Bonifacio del Carril, author of the Monumenta Iconographica, regarded as one of the most important iconography bibliography in Argentina, his ex libris on front pastedown.

"Ein kultuthistorisch sehr interessanter ärztlicher Schriftsteller" (Hirsch). Über den Autor ist wenig bekannt ausser dass er aus Glogau stammte und sich königlich-polnischer Leibmedicus nannte. Er veröffentlichte eine Reihe von medizinischen und naturwissenschaftlichen Darstellungen in Romanform meist unter dem Titel "des getreuen Eckardts". In der Form des Reiseromans wird das gesamte chirurgische Wissen in Europa seiner Zeit dargestellt. Der Wortschatz der Romane Ettners wurde von den Gebrüdern Grimm in ihr Wörterbuch aufgenommen. Die Texte müssen in ihrer Zeit sehr populär und weit verbreitet gewesen sein, obwohl sie nur in wenigen Auflagen gedruckt erschienen sind. Heute sind sie nahezu unauffindbar geworden. Sowohl in literarischer wie medizinischer Hinsicht hochinteressant. - Das hübsche Frontispiz mit kleiner Wurmspur am unteren Rand ebenso die letzten 20 Blatt. Titel mit altem handschriftlichen Besitzvermerk. Titel und Frontispiz fingerfleckig, sonst sauberes Exemplar.

      Fysiognomisk studie. Teckning i svart krita med förhöjningar i vitt. Signerad »J. Gillberg delineavit». 40?×?32,5 cm. Inramad. 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).. (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).)
