        Apologia de' Padri Domenicani missionarii della China; opure risposta al libro del padre Le Tellier Gesuita intitolato disfesa dei nuovi Christiani e delucidatione del P. Gobien sopra gli honori che li Chinesi prestano a Confucio ed ai morti. Unito con: Documenta controversiam missionarium apostolicum Imperii Sinici De cultu.

      appresso gli Heredi di C. d'Egmond,, Colonia, 1699 - 2 opere in un volume in 8° piccolo (150 x 100), pp. (12) 644 (10, 1c.b.) 257 (3). Legatura piena pergamena dell'epoca. Buon esemplare. Traduzione in italiano contemporanea a quella originale in francese stampata a Bruxelles. Alexandre Noel (1639-1724) fu storico e teologo francese, domenicano, accanito avversario dei Gesuiti. Professore e rettore del Collegio di San Giacomo, poi provinciale a Parigi, insegnante alla Sorbona di Parigi, rimase nell'alveo del sistema tomista, pur indulgendo a un moderato gallicanesimo, di moda fra i teologi francesi del suo tempo. Criticò aspramente l’atteggiamento dei gesuiti nei confronti dei riti cinesi accusandoli di accettare alcuni aspetti della spiritualità cinese. Cfr. Melzi, I p. 74; Barbier, I/245; Cordier, Bibl. Sinica, 877. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

After visiting Leipzig to learn German he was made prebendary of Carlisle in 1681, archdeacon in 1682. Twenty years later he was appointed bishop of the same diocese, where he remained until his transfer to Derry in 1718. In 1727 he was nominated archbishop of Cashel and Emly, but died before he could assume charge. Nicolson is remembered by the impulsiveness of his temperament, which led him into a good deal of strife as a bishop, and more happily by his zeal in collecting and guarding manuscripts and other official documents. For this purpose he had special rooms built at Derry. His chief works were the Historical Library (English, 1696-97-99; Scottish, 1702; Irish, 1724; complete later editions, 1732 and 1776), and Leges Marchiarum or Border Laws (1705, new ed., 1747).

        The Folly and unreasonableness of atheism demonstrated from the advantage and pleasure of a religious life

      J.H. for H. Mortlock, London 1699 - Small 4to. "Fourth Edition." pp. [4], 280. Complete. With frontispiece engraving of the Hon. Robert Boyle. An extra 19th century plate of the author Richard Bentley is also included after the dedication. Bound in modern half calf with marbled boards. Pages are generally clean; a faded name is written with small letters in an early hand on the title page (upper corner); minor chipping to outer edge of title. All edges gilt. Richard Bentley (1662-1742) English scholar and literary critic. He was made keeper of the Royal Libraries and was later appointed Master of Trinity College, Cambridge. In 1692 he was nominated first Boyle lecturer (named after scientist Robert Boyle). He then delivered a series of sermons trying to refute Thomas Hobbes and atheism. In particular, the lectures tried to show how the recent work in physics by Sir Isaac Newton offered proof of God’s existence. Bentley even corresponded with Newton on the subject. Originally the sermons were printed separately - several editions of each being issued. In 1693 the tracts were first collected together under the present title with separate paginations. The so-called "fourth edition" of 1699 is advertised as "corrected" and it displays continuous pagination. [ESTC R21357; Wing B1931]. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Calf gilt c. 1699, worn, discolored, leather of hinges split but covers attached. Some foxing and toning, especially to the plates, tear in plate XCVI, some plate fore-edges frayed.</p> <p>Second edition, containing significant additions and revisions to this "extraordinary storehouse of seventeenth century anatomical works" (Russell 524), which was first published in 1685. The impressive collection, with its striking engraved title and over one hundred plates based on the original sources, gathers in a single work the most important discoveries of the seventeenth century, the period which laid the foundation for modern anatomy and physiology. These include the writings of Harvey, Willis, Lower, Malpighi, Vieussens, Swammerdam, de Graaf, and Bartholin, to name just some. In the case of William Harvey, the collection of his writings in LeClerc and Manget precedes his Opera Omnia published in England in the eighteenth century.</p><p> LeClerc is known as "the father of the history of medicine" for his Histoire de la Medecine published first in 1696 and expanded in subsequent editions (see G-M 6379); however, he was most appreciated by his contemporaries for his beautifully produced massive digests of the burgeoning field of modern medical literature.

Brauner Ganzlederband der Zeit auf fünf Bünden mit goldgeprägtem Rückentitel, sehr reichen floralen Goldprägungen und Kantenvergoldung; dreiseitiger Rotschnitt; mehrfarbig illustrierte Vorsätze. Deutsche Fassung des von König Christian V (1646 - 1699) erlassenen Dänischen Gesetzbuchs (Danske Lov) von 1683, das die bis dahin geltenden regionalen Rechtsordnungen (Jütisches Recht, Schonisches Recht und Seeländisches Recht) ersetzte und erstmals ein einheitliches dänisches Recht konstituierte. Die Verabschiedung des Gesetzes spiegelte die Einführung des Absolutismus in Dänemark im Jahre 1660 wider. Als rechtliche Grundlagre der absoluten Herrschaft wurde zunächst 1665 die Lex Regia, das Königsgesetz, erlassen. Das Königsgesetz wurde erst 1709 veröffentlicht, das Dänische Gesetzbuch von 1683 nahm aber in seinem ersten Buch bereits Teile davon vorweg. "Das Dänische Gesetzbuch war ein Ergebnis der politischen Umwälzungen, die dem König eine zentrale Stellung einräumten und nach Rechtseinheit strebten." Für Norwegen wurde 1687 ein analoges Gesetz erlassen (vgl.: Ditlev Tamm,Werner Schubert,Jens Ulf Jörgensen [Hrsg.]: Quellen zur dänischen Rechts- und Verfassungsgeschichte (12 .- 20. Jahrhundert), Frankfurt am Main, Peter Lang, 2008, S. 20)..

        Des Principes de l&#39;Architecture, de la Sculpture, de la Peinture, et des autres Arts qui en dépendent. Avec un Dictionnaire des termes propres à chacun de ces Arts

      Engraved frontis. & 65 finely engraved full-page illus. in the text. Title printed in red & black. 12 p.l. (incl. frontis.), 542 pp. 4to, early 18th cent. French red morocco, triple gilt fillet round sides, gilt fleurons in each corner, spine gilt. Paris: chez la Veuve & J.B. Coignard, fils, 1699. "The Principes, first published in 1676, is a handbook of the principles and practices of the three arts of architecture, sculpture, and painting. By far the most important section is that on architecture. The author states that the book is written for the general public: its purpose is to do away with craft "secrets" and "mysteries," to make the many crafts associated with the arts intelligible to the layman, and by implication to give these crafts some uniformity. It is not only an early treatise written for the layman, but one of a group of treatises emphasizing practicality over principles... "The fact that the author of the book was a person of considerable distinction in academic and court circles, and that the work was dedicated to Colbert&#39;s son, then surintendant des bâtiments, suggests political interest in a systematization of the techniques as well as the products of the crafts. However, Félibien&#39;s approach to his subject is as personal as it may be official. It is in marked contrast to the selective and exclusive approach of the architectural treatises which preceded it, and which focused on principles of design rather than of execution, and to the handbooks, which were concerned with a single craft, and with drawing and measuring rather than with tools. The contents of this work are unique, although they would be imitated immediately in England by Joseph Moxon... "Félibien began his project with a proposal to collect trade terms in a dictionary. He soon realized that since his dictionary was intended to instruct, he would need to include a description of each trade and an essay on the principles of that art with which the trade was associated. In addition, he found it necessary to turn to craftsmen for explanations of their various trades, as well as to written authorities... "The first section, on architecture, is in part a development of theoretical material from earlier architectural treatises. Chapter 1 is concerned with the history of architecture. Here Félibien considers not only the conventional view of architecture as a series of monuments that will confirm the importance of the reign of the king (Louis XIV), but also sees it as an older craft tradition, referred to by Philibert de L&#39;Orme and Alexandre Francine, in which God is the sovereign Architect of the Universe, and geometry is emphasized as a fundamental discipline. Chapters 2 through 10 are devoted to an exposition of the orders. These are still close to the view of Fréart de Chambray and Abraham Bosse, that the Ancients established a single interpretation for each of the orders, and that each had its special beauty; the Moderns, on the other hand, differed among each other in their solution to the problem of the proportions of the orders. Like Fréart, he ranks Palladio first among the Moderns... "But Félibien, despite the preferential place and attention he gives to the orders in his introduction, states that priority in architecture should be given to siting, materials, and use; only after these are satisfied should character and the elements of beauty, which he defines as the relation of parts, just proportions, and symmetry, be considered. Chapter 11 is devoted to the types of building, 12 to materials, 13 to military engineering, and 14 through 22 to the trades (crafts). Following this introduction are engraved illustrations of the tools of each trade, with a list of the names of each tool on the facing page... "The sections on sculpture and painting repeat this format, but not the size nor the scope of the architectural section. The dictionary, which had been proposed as the original project, forms the second part of the work... "The Principes achieved instant popularity; it was reprinted in 1690, 1697, and 1699. In 1774 it still held sufficient authority that J.B. Quélard would base a part of his Encylopédia on it."­The Mark J. Millard Architectural Collection. Volume I. French Books Sixteenth through Nineteenth Centuries, 71. A very fine copy. This is the 1699 reissue of the 1697 third edition, being identical apart from the new title-page. .

        Les plans et les descriptions de deux des plus belles maisons de campagne de Pline le Consul. Avec des remarques sur tous les bâtimens, et une Dissertation touchant l'architecture antique & l'architecture gothique

      Florentin & Pierre Delaulne, Paris 1699 - Octavo. 6 ff., 189 pp. + 23 pp. With 7 engraved plates (of which 5 are folding) FIRST EDITION OF THIS PIONEERING WORK WHICH FORESHADOWED THE RISE OF ROMANTIC CLASSICISM. In the present volume, the Tuscan and Laurentine gardens and villas owned by Pliny the Younger (2nd century A.D.) are completely reconstructed through the analysis of Pliny's own detailed letters. The text appears in Latin with Felibien's French translation and his copious notes, printed in Roman type over the whole page. Seven engraved plates illustrate the villas with their surrounding gardens (one of which is large and folding, ca. 43 x 25 cm). Felibien also reproduces the description of the Laurentine villa by Scamozzi (the great Renaissance architect), who records discrepancies that occur in the Pliny documents. Scamozzi's text appears in the original Italian with Felibien's French translation and notes. * The volume concludes with Felibien's justly famous dissertation on the origins of architecture (p. 169-189). Felibien here outlines "gotique ancien" and "gotique moderne," which correspond roughly to the Romanesque and Gothic. Significantly, the author suggests that early medieval architecture was derived from the imagery of CAVES, while Gothic itself was inspired by FOREST GROVES (cf. R.D. Middleton's article "The Abbe de Cordemoy and the Graeco-Gothic Ideal: A Prelude to Romantic Classicism" in: Journal of the Warburg and Courtauld Institutes, XXV, 1962, 2-3, pp. 299-302). Felibien promotes the classical style over the gothic, the former 'founded on nature's principles', the latter 'opposed to nature.' * Jean Felibien des Avaux (ca. 1656-1733), French classicist architect, was secretary to the Academie d'Architecture; he succeeded his father as Historiographer of the Royal Buildings, and was treasurer of the Academie des Inscriptions et Belles Lettres. §§§ REFERENCES: See Millard, French p. 188, and Millard, English, p. 64.

A very nice clean copy. Rare, this edition not in OCLC; which lists just a Paris 1741 edition with this title; Querard 3, col. 345; See Henrey, volume 1, p. 186; see Bitting p. 48 (who lists a 1684 edition and indicates that the first edition was issued in 1650, but that it has never been seen). This book, under the title: "Le Jardinier Francois" was written by Bonnefons and published in Paris in 1651. It was popular enough that a 4th edition was issued in 1654. It was translated by John Evelyn in 1658, being his first published work on horticulture. Evelyn notes that this book was "the first and best of that kind that introduced the use of the olitorie (ie kitchen) garden to any purpose"[Henrey Vol. 1, p. 186]. Bitting: "The work is divided into three parts: the first treats of the soil; the second treats fruits and vegetables; the third is about the manner of conserving fruits in their natural state, dry, with salt and vinegar, sweet wine, cider, and honey, liquid with sugar, dry and pastes, conserves of flowers and massepains."

Petit manque dans l'angle supérieur du premier feuillet blanc, cerne clair allant s'atténuant aux sept premiers feuillets, intéressante note manuscrite (11 lignes) ancienne concernant l'ouvrage à la fin de l'avertissement. « NOUVELLE EDITION, imprimée sur celle de 1696, corrigée et augmentée d'une suite de nouvelles remarques sur tout l'ouvrage, pour l'intelligence des endroits les plus difficiles » (sous-titre). Edition due à Le Duchat, illustrée de TROIS PLANCHES GRAVÉES, dont une dépliante représentant "La procession de la Ligue". Célèbre pamphlet politique du XVIe siècle, dirigé contre la Ligue, la "Satyre Ménippée" fut publiée pour la première fois en 1594. Ses auteurs sont P. Pithou, Jean Passerai, Gilles Durand, Nicolas Rupin, Florent Chrestien, Jacques Gillot et P. Le Roy. Elle est composée de quatre parties, qui forment autant de pamphlets différents : le "Catholicon d'Espagne" ; la "Farce des Estats de la Ligue" ; diverses pièces de poésies satiriques; enfin l'"Explication du Higuiero d'infierno". Les auteurs, tous forts érudits, avaient dans l'antiquité des modèles qu'ils ont suivis, et pour le fond et pour la forme. A la fois comédie, pamphlet et coup d'Etat, cette satire fraye la route à Henri IV vers le trône ; elle met au grand jour les prétentions de la Ligue, ses intentions secrètes, ses folies, ses crimes. Elle ne se contente pas de disserter ou de parodier, elle fait agir et vivre cette grande conspiration. Irrésistible satire, burlesque, populaire, fine et profonde, elle mêle vers légers, épigrammes piquantes, pages éloquentes, comiques parodies ; tableau chargé, mais réel, des moeurs de l'époque, elle en est le plus curieux monument. Les politiques, les historiens, les gens de goût la consultent encore. Les plus jolis vers de la fin du XVIe siècle s'y trouvent semés. (Grand Larousse du XIXe, Tome XI, 32-2). BEL EXEMPLAIRE, d'une grande fraicheur, dans sa reliure d'époque, intacte. NICE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST.

La plupart des planches portent un texte en petits caractères curvilignes. Demi Veau d'époque à coins. Reliure italienne. Dos à nerfs orné de fleurs et de roulettes. Frottements, particulièrement sur les plats. Coins très émoussés. Intérieur d'une superbe fraîcheur. Très célèbre recueil de gravures sur la Rome antique, d'une grande beauté les planches ne se contentent pas de figurer les grands monuments tels que le Panthéon ou le Colisée, mais représentent tous les aspects de la grandeur de Rome on trouvera donc des planches militaires, archéologiques, maritimes les planches d'architecture étant naturellement les plus nombreuses, étalant ainsi la connaissance de l'architecture romaine au XVIIe. Domenico de Rossi est responsable de plusieurs recueils d'architecture, notamment Studio d'architettura civile di Roma, un recueil sur les monuments étrusques avec Bartoli. 138pl.
