PÉCOUR, Louis 1653-1729
Paris: [ca. 1700]. Pécour is depicted seated at a table with an open book of dances in Feuillet notation. 417 x 294 mm. Slightly worn and soiled; minor creasing to area with letters below image; trimmed to just within plate mark. Laid down to backing paper. Credited with 120 original choreographies, most for the theatre but many for social dancing, "[Pécour] was one of the finest dancers working under the celebrated royal choreographer Pierre Beauchamp. He is said in one source to have made his début as a dancer in a repeat performance of Lully's Cadmus et Hermione in 1674. When, on Lully's death in 1687, Beauchamp left the Opéra, Pécour was appointed in his place. He gave up dancing in about 1703 but he held the post of ballet-master and choreographer at the Opéra until his death. His tutelage produced such outstanding dancers as La Fontaine, Subligny, Guiot, Prevost and Menese among the women and Blondy, Ballon, Dumoulin and Marcel among the men. He is credited with changing the 'S' figure of the Minuet to a 'Z', an innovation that helped keep the dancers in a proper relationship to each other and to the figure."

INSELIN (Charles).
Orléans, Herman, [entre 1700 et 1706]. 440 x 569 mm. Beau et rare plan figurant la ville d'Orléans au tout début du XVIIIe siècle, dessiné et gravé par Charles Inselin, et publié par Herman à Orléans. Le plan est placé dans un encadrement à la manière d'un tableau. Il est orné d'un cartouche de titre contenant une courte description de la ville, d'un cartouche de dédicace décoré des armoiries du dédicataire, Pierre-Armand du Cambout de Coislin, évêque d'Orléans (1636-1706), et d'une rose des vents. Le plan est présenté et dédié par l'éditeur Herman. Le plan est assez bien détaillé. Les principaux édifices (bâtiments religieux, maison du roi, hôpital) y sont représentés en élévation. Un clocher a été ajouté à la cathédrale pour relever le monument. L'ancien clocher avait été démoli en 1691, et le nouveau ne fut construit qu'en 1708. Le Pont des Tourelles, plus ancien pont d'Orléans, est ici dénommé Le Pont à 170 toises. Ce pont était situé au-dessus de l'îlot formé des mottes Saint-Antoine et des Poissonniers (ou motte des Chalands-percés). Il sera détruit en 1760, et remplacé à quelques mètres de là par le Pont Royal, actuel Pont Georges V. On voit sur le pont le monument élevé en l'honneur de Jeanne d'Arc, avec la légende La Pucelle d'Orléans. À droite du plan figurent une petite carte des environs d'Orléans et une description historique de la ville. Très rare seconde édition mise à jour et publiée par Herman entre 1700 et 1706. Sur cette édition a été ajouté le ravelin ou demi-lune (fortification extérieure en forme de V) à l'entrée de la porte Bourgogne, à l'est de … [Click Below for Full Description]
