        Some Thoughts Concerning Education. The Fourth Edition Enlarged

      London: Printed for A. and J. Churchill,.. 1699 Fourth edition. Eighteenth-century calf, rebacked, corners repaired. . Octavo. A good crisp copy. Yolton 168, notes that "The work is largely a reprint of the third, but with new errors, especially of spelling, introduced. There are a few substantial changes: Section 7 is expanded by one page, S 94 by half a page, and SS's 192-3 are slightly rephrased. The only large addition occurs in S 167, the section headed 'Latin', where more details about the skills of a tutor or teacher needed to encourage and instruct his pupil are described" (Attig 525).

      La vente s'en fera en détail au plus offrant & dernier Encherisseur. Le 16. Novembre 1699 & autres jours suivans. 1 p.l., 38 pp.; 138 pp., one leaf of errata, one leaf of an "Appendix" of additional books. Two parts in one vol. 12mo, cont. mottled sheep (slightly rubbed), spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: [S. Moette & Boudot], 1699. The extremely rare catalogue of what is very likely the first sale by auction of an important library issued in Paris. This catalogue has all the earmarks of an early auction catalogue: lot numbers and the wording of the "Avertissement" on the verso of the title strongly suggests this was an auction. Additionally, and this may be unique in our copy, each lot in the print catalogue and the first 410 lots of the book catalogue have been priced in a contemporary hand, giving further evidence and strength to this catalogue's priority over the Bigot sale of 1706 (which is certainly an auction). See Pollard & Ehrman, Table XXV (Pollard stating he believes it is an inventory catalogue) and page 237 (where he strongly suggests it could be an auction catalogue). Boucot (d. 1699), lawyer, councillor, and secretary to the King, formed one of the largest and most famous collections of books, prints, drawings, and manuscripts in Paris in the 17th century. For a detailed account of his activities, see Antoine Schnapper's Curieux du grand siècle, les collectionneurs d'art au XVIIe siècle (1994). The catalogue consists of two parts. In our copy, the catalogue of the prints, drawings, and illustrated books is bound in first. We first find 179 lots of prints with each lot having between 17 and 5801 (!) items. This is followed by 41 large lots of portraits. Then we find 428 lots in folio and 95 large lots in 4to of illustrated books (including many atlases, famous botanical works, and festival books). At the end the fifty manuscripts are grouped in twenty-three lots and these include three Roman de la Rose manuscripts, thirty-five Books of Hours, and one manuscript datable to 1348. The catalogue of the 18,000 books follows and here they have been again arranged by size and, oftentimes, in large lots. Many of the books are of the 15th and 16th centuries. Bléchet states the Royal Library was a major buyer at the sale. A fine copy of a catalogue for which I have been searching for more than thirty years, ever since I first studied Pollard & Ehrman. This copy has the additional "Appendix" leaf at end with a further 24 lots of books for sale, all of which are by or about Protestantism. ❧ Bléchet, p. 67. Grolier Club, Printed Catalogues of French Book Auctions...1643-1830, 9. Guigard, II, p. 74. Loh, Vol. 3, p. 249. Lugt 171. .

        Les Avantures de Telemaque. Fils d´Ulysse. (on half-title: Suite de l'Odyssée d'Homere). Nouvelle Edition, divisee en dix Livres. 2 Tomes.

      Bruxelles, Fr. Foppens, 1699. Small 8vo (12mo). Bound in a beautiful later full calf (ca. 1800) w. five raised bands on back. Gilt back and blindstamped ornamental borders on boards. All edges of boards gilt, and gilt borders on inside of boards. Hinges cracked and boards loosening, inner hinges crudely repaired. A bit of brownspotting, but internally a very nice copy.. The very rare Bruxelles-edition, published same year as the first edition (Paris, Barbin). Fénelon's main work, written when he was a tutor to the Duke of Burgundy in order to hold up Ulysses as an example for the young prince. Fénelon was a leader of the Quetism heresy, and in 1699, the year Télemaque appeared, Pope Innocent XII condemned his writings. The true first edition of Fénélon's Télemaque appeared in one volume in 1699 under the title "Suite du quatrième livre de l'Odyssée d'Homère, ou les Aventures de Télémaque, fils d'Ulysse", and containing only half of what we consider Télémaque today. According to Brunet, the first edition was suppressed, and Moetjens printed a pirate-edition (called the second edition) in Haag with the same year and date (June), and a bit later the same year, the second part appeared. Several editions appeared the same year, and Brunet mentions one without printer or Place (but Paris), and the Liége- and Bruxelles-editions. "Dans les différentes éditions que nous venons de décrire dans lesquelles il le soit sont celles de LIÉGE, 1699, et de BRUXELLES, FR. FOPPENS, même date, l'une et l'autre impr. en France, en 2 vol. in-12, et en dix livres." (Brunet II:1212). Foppens also printed an edition in Bruxelles 1700, but that is divided into 16 books. All early editions of this work are scarce, and the first edition is almost impossible to get a hold of. This main work of French literature has been printed numerous times after the author's death (1715), and editions printed before his death, are a great rarity. The later editions were corrected and divided into numerous books, not intended in the original manuscript."Une autre circonstance allait aggrever la situation de l'archevêque de Cambray. Peu de temps après sa condemnation, parut le livre qui l'a rendu le plus populaire et qui, après la "Bible" et l'"Imitation de Jésus-Christ", est un de ceux qui ont eu plus d'éditions: "Les Aventures de Télémaque". (N.B.G. 17:328). The controversial but highly popular work was, among other things, accused of satirically portraying Louis XIV, and thereby publicly humiliating him, -this was probably not the intention, but there is no doubt that the work was critical towards the reigning regime, and put forth many ideas not previously heard of. In true utopian political manner, Fénélon warns against overgrowth of the metropolis and preaches groundbreaking doctrines like free trade, international arbitration etc. He actually foresees the French Revolution as a result of the flourishing despotism so visible in France at the time. Lamartine (in his "Life of Fénélon") describes the saintly poet as the first Radical and the first communist of his century, though not to his own knowledge, and he directly traces the Utopias which produced the revolutions of 1793 and 1848 to his groundbreaking work, "The Adventures of Telemachus". Especially the part "Voyage en Salente" is considered very important for the study of utopian literature, but the entire work is characterized by the attempt to represent people as they might have behaved and might still be, were they governed by sages and saints and according to the laws of God. The work represents a religious ideal where God is always higher than man; it is greatly political, greatly influenced by the appreciation of ancient Greek life, and is designed to evoke the feeling of honour, responsibility and religion in the young prince. See Brunet II: 1210-1212. Graesse 2:563-64 (Paris- and La Haye-editions)
