Dusart, Cornelis
"LA HOLLANDOISE SUR LES PATINS"? en "LE HOLLANDOIS SUR LA GLACE"? Etsen met aquatint vervaardigd rond 1700 te Amsterdam door Jacob Gole (ca. 1660-1737) naar Cornelis Dusart (1660-1704). Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (prent) elk: 25,5 x 18 cm. Onder de prenten wordt uitgelegd, bij de vrouw: "On vas tu cher Gilot je sens rompre la glace,/ Si je m'enfoce au moins que je t'embrasse."? En bij de man: "Ca la pipe a la main, venez, chers camarades,/ Bravons le froid, et faisons cent gambades."? Bernardino de Mendoza, Spaans geschiedschrijver ten tijden van de Opstand vertelde met ontzag over de rapheid van de Hollandse schaatsers: Zij hebben platte, houten schoenen aan de voeten die met een over de wreef lopende riem vastzitten. Aan de zool van dit schoeisel zit een stuk metaal, zo dik als een pink, dat van voren in een krul oploopt zoals de Turkse pantoffels. Op dit schoeisel gaan zijn vlug over het ijs en bewegen daarbij hun voeten met een zekere regelmaat. Zij staan er zo vast op dat zelfs boerenvrouwen en meisjes er zich snel op voortbewegen met manden eieren of andere zaken op hun hoofd. Zij hebben een ongelofelijk vlugge vaart, vooral als de wind tegen hun achterste blaast, want er is geen paard dat hen kan bijhouden. Prijs: Euro 1.250,- /stuk (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

The Consolatio is in prose and verse but this translation is only in prose. His most important and best known work, De consolatione in Latin, did not initially circulate, but from the Carolingian period, and largely due to the work of Alcuin, it was hugely read in the Middle Ages, and various commentaries were written and read in learned milieux.But it also circulated and was well known in the vernacular, in French, German, Old English (attributed to King Alfred) English (Chaucer), Catalan, Dutch, Spanish.

Les Oeuvres d'Horace, Traduites En Francois, Avec Des Notes, et Remarques Critques Sur Tout L'ouvrage In Ten Volumes Translated and edited by André Dacier 1691 - Paris - Denys Thierry and Claude Barbin 6.5" by 4" DETAILS A late 17th century translated collection of works from leading Roman lyric poet, Horace. In both French, with the original Latin to face. "Last Edition, with original Latin reveni, corrected, and enriched by figures." During the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, or the Age of Enlightenment, neo-classical culture was pervasive. English literature in the middle of that period has been dubbed Augustan. It is not always easy to distinguish Horace's influence during those centuries (the mixing of influences is shown for example in one poet's pseudonym, Horace Juvenal).However a measure of his influence can be found in the diversity of the people interested in his works, both among readers and authors. New editions of his works were published almost yearly. There were three new editions in 1612 (two in Leiden, one in Frankfurt) and again in 1699 (Utrecht, Barcelona, Cambridge). Cheap editions were plentiful and fine editions were also produced, including one whose entire text was engraved by John Pine in copperplate. The poet James Thomson owned five editions of Horace's work and the physician James Douglas had five hundred books with Horace-related titles. Horace was often commended in periodicals such as The Spectator, as a hallmark of good judgement, moderation and manliness, a focus for moralising. His verses offe … [Click Below for Full Description]

Commentarii Historico Dogmatici In Librum St. Augustini de Haeresibus In Two Volumes By Lorenzo Cozza 1717 - Rome - Plachi 13" by 9"; 484pp.; 480pp. DETAILS An extremely scarce copy presumed first edition of Cozza's dogmatic histories on the heresies of St. Augustine. Lorenzo Cozza (1654 - 1729) was an Italian friar Minor Observantist, Roman Catholic Cardinal and theologian. In his order, he filled the positions of lector of theology in the convent of Santa Maria in Aracoeli, lector of philosophy in the convent of Saint Diego (Naples, 1676), and lector of theology in the convent of Viterbo, where he also became guardian. He then returned to the convent of Aracoeli as lector of theology and, later, in 1696, guardian. For five years, Cozza was master of Francesco Antonio Placidi, friar Minor and future Saint Thomas of Cori. Cardinal Giulio Cesare Sacchetti chose Cozza as his confessor and theological adviser, thus giving rise to a friendship that lasted through life. St Augustine was one of the most prolific Latin authors in terms of surviving works, and the list of his works consists of more than one hundred separate titles. They include apologetic works against the heresies of the Arians, Donatists, Manichaeans and Pelagians, texts on Christian doctrine, notably De Doctrina Christiana (On Christian Doctrine), exegetical works such as commentaries on Book of Genesis, the Psalms and Paul's Letter to the Romans, many sermons and letters, and the Retractationes, a review of his earlier works which he wrote near the end of his life.

The Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ, Collected from the Four Evangelists. In daily meditations. In Latin. Nicola Avancini (1612 - 1686) was an ascetical writer.

Les Oeuvres d'Horace, Traduites En Francois, Avec Des Notes, et Remarques Critques Sur Tout L'ouvrage In Ten Volumes Translated and edited by André Dacier 1691 - Paris - Denys Thierry and Claude Barbin 6.5" by 4" DETAILS A late 17th century translated collection of works from leading Roman lyric poet, Horace. In both French, with the original Latin to face. "Last Edition, with original Latin reveni, corrected, and enriched by figures." During the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, or the Age of Enlightenment, neo-classical culture was pervasive. English literature in the middle of that period has been dubbed Augustan. It is not always easy to distinguish Horace's influence during those centuries (the mixing of influences is shown for example in one poet's pseudonym, Horace Juvenal).However a measure of his influence can be found in the diversity of the people interested in his works, both among readers and authors. New editions of his works were published almost yearly. There were three new editions in 1612 (two in Leiden, one in Frankfurt) and again in 1699 (Utrecht, Barcelona, Cambridge). Cheap editions were plentiful and fine editions were also produced, including one whose entire text was engraved by John Pine in copperplate. The poet James Thomson owned five editions of Horace's work and the physician James Douglas had five hundred books with Horace-related titles. Horace was often commended in periodicals such as The Spectator, as a hallmark of good judgement, moderation and manliness, a focus for moralising.

SELLER, John
London,: Sold by Philip Lea at ye Atlas and Hercules in Cheap Side,, [c.1700].. By John Seller Hydrographer to the King many Additions by P. Lea Cum Privilegio Regis. Engraved map on two sheets joined, fine original hand-colour in outline, trimmed to neatline. The map was first issued by Seller in 1679. The map was to be part of Seller's large folio county atlas of England and Wales, entitled 'Atlas Anglicanus'. However the project, like much of Seller's over-ambitious schemes, never got off the ground, with only six of the counties - Middlesex, Surrey, Hertfordshire, Kent, Buckinghamshire, and Oxfordshire - being surveyed. In 1693, he was forced to sell the plates to Philip Lea, who issued them separately and as part of the composite atlases of England and Wales. After Lea's death in 1700, the business was run by his widow Anne, until her death in 1730. Scale: 3/4 inch to 1 statute mile. BLMC Maps 3455.(9.); Skelton 115.
