Among the friends of his later years was the great Condé. He died in Paris on 7 July 1667. Two younger sons, Adrien (d. 1708) and Guillaume (d. 1703), succeeded him as geographers to the king.In 1692 Hubert Jaillot collected Sanson's maps in an Atlas nouveau.

First edition of six satirical dialogues in Bolognese dialect celebrated for their social observation of the theatrical and musical life which the author knew as a librettist and for their influence on the tradition of the commedia improvvisa. Of the 4099 verses, 1219 are said to depend on comedies by the play­wright Carlo Maria Maggi published in 1700. 1 In turn, the most original of Lotti's six dialogues, 'La cantatriz', was extensively plagiarised. 2 We can trace fifteen other copies of this first edition, none in North American libraries: ● Bologna, Archiginnasio, Fratelli-Sorbelli, three copies 3 ● Bologna, Biblioteca d'arte e di storia di San Giorgio in Poggiale, four copies 4 ● Cambridge, Cambridge University Library, S740.d.70.1 ● Florence, Biblioteca Comunale Centrale, Fondo Corrado Ricci, no. 448 ● London, British Library, 11427.e.25 ● Melbourne, University Library, 851.59 L884R ● Milan, Biblioteca nazionale Braidense, 23.2.

      apud Georgium Gallet, Antwerpiae (Anversa) 1703 - in-folio (415x252 mm); leg. di pregio in piena pergamena, dorso a sei nervi con titoli e fregi dorati su tasselli in pelle alle caselle, decori ai piatti impressi a freddo, tagli colorati a spruzzo; 3 vol.; pp. [50], 568, [8]; [12], 536; [8], 364; frontespizi in rosso e nero; vignetta calcografica disegnata da Jan Goeree (1670-1731) e incisa da Gilliam van der Gouwen sui frontespizi impressi in rosso e nero. Varie dedicatorie preliminari, testatine, capilettera e finalini istoriati in xilografia. Numerose tabelle e figure n.t. Sul recto della seconda c. del primo tomo ritr. dell'autore inciso da Pieter Stevens van Gunst. Testo in latino su due colonne. Il titolo del t. 2 presenta alcuni caratteri in alfabeto greco (. ta historoumena .). Poco diffusa nuova edizione di Anversa di questa amplissima opera di astronomia e cronografia del Petau. Il trattato fu pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1627 a Parigi, poi nel 1702 ad Anversa; in buona parte fu fondato sui precedenti lavori di cronologia di Joseph Justus Scaliger e godette di larga fortuna, ricevendo gli elogi di Grozio, dell'Huet, del Voss e di molti altri studiosi di fama europea. L'opera ebbe anche influsso anche sul "Discorso sulla storia universale" di Bossuet. L'opera, è così ripartita: 1) Opus de Doctrina Temporum .; 2) Tomus secundus: in quo Temporum ta historoumena disputantur, tum doctrinae usus atque fructus Chronico Libro traditur. 3) In quo Uranologium sive Systema variorum auctorum, qui de sphera ac sideribus eorumque motibus graece commentati sunt, quorum nomina post prefationem leguntur. Omnia vel graece ac latine nunc primum edita, vel ante non edita; item variarum dissertationum libri VIII. Denis Petau (1583-1652), gesuita, fu tra i più eminenti teologi francesi del suo tempo, la cui fama si estese a livello europe, tanto che Filippo IV di Spagna volle conferirgli la cattedra di storia al Collegio di Madrid, da lui peraltro rifiutata. Canonico e suddiacono di Orléans, fu professore di retorica a Reims, La Flèche e poi, dal 1621 al 1644, di teologia positiva al Collegio di Clermont di Parigi. L'elenco delle sue opere spazia dalla cronologia alla storia, dalla teologia alla filosofia, ecc., ma le sue maggiori benemerenze rimangono quelle legate all'edizione e alla critica di testi patristici.

First edition in English, first published as De jure Naturae et Gentium libri octo in 1672. The legal theorist, historian and theologian Samuel von Pufendorf (1632–1694) was the first professor of the Law of Nature and of Nations in a German university at Heidelberg. In his works on political science "he attempted to strike a middle path between the rationalism of Grotius and the voluntarism of Hobbes. He envisaged the state of nature as a war of all against all, from which men would wish to save themselves by joining in a society whose laws were imposed by the ruler's will. But he also argued that such laws must conform to natural law, whose duties he maintained, unlike Grotius, were imposed on man by God's will … In preference to Grotius's a posteriori method, he adopted a sociological form of inquiry into man's condition in society" (The New Palgrave III, p. 1074).

A rare work on the significance of the letters of the alphabet - mystical, musical, historical and alchemical. The book is full of puzzles, anagrams, ciphers, codes etc., and it has been the subject of scholarly study particularly relating to Bach's music and whether he was influenced by this book.

Original gray rubbed silk covers, a Japanese reprint of the 1663 Chinese map, neatly rebacked,127 x 137.5 cm., a few old mended worm holes, minor flaws, hand colored, folds down to 21.5 x 34 cm. R A R E FIRST & ONLY EDITION Translation of the Chinese Title: continued: "WITH THE WHOLE PICTURE OF THE PEOPLE'S HISTORY AND ALL ROADS." . Chinese pinyin title is: DA MING JIU BIAN WAN GUO, REN JI LU CHEN QUAN TU. . *** A marvelous and grand size example. The work basically shows the whole country and its surrounding areas. Minor tears, most repaired, some old stains & repaired worming, actually quite nice. Remarkable in its detail and features. It shows the Great Wall at the top, or Northern orientation, geographic features include: rivers, lakes, cities and villages, mountains are painted in green. With a list of foreign countries at the left margin, showing the distance in "Ri" or miles. Important administrative areas in red outline, islands named, the sea around the whole country is done in a stylistic wave pattern set in the middle of an ocean border.

There are some old stains on the edges & in the folds, this does not penetrate to the front, if it does the color of the map ameliorates this. By and large a nice work in good plus condition. .

Seldom found for sale anywhere these days. . *** BIBLIOGRAPHY: This exact map has been cited and illustrated in: T. Oda: THE WORLD IN JAPANESE MAPS UNTIL THE MID 19TH CENTURY, plate #23, on pages 50-51.

         Arithmetic, called the computational science].

      Moskva Sinodalna 1703 - Folio (28 x 17 cm). ll. 326, including title, printed in Cyrillic letters in red and black within typographic borders, with engraved frontispiece and plate by Mikhail Karnovskii and 3 folding letterpress tables, numerous woodcut figures in text; some leaves remargined and with tears mostly to inner margin, occasionally with minor loss of text, lacking 1 plate (last plate), red wax seals to upper fly leaf, title and first page. Near contemporary half calf over marbled boards, spine with blind tooled decor in compartments; worn. One of the most important books printed during the reign of Peter the Great. Leontii Magnitskii (1669 – 1739), a prominent Russian scientist and professor at the School of Mathematics and Navigation, compiled the present work as a kind of encyclopaedia of exact sciences on the orders of Peter the Great, issued in February 1701. Magnitskii included the most up to date information on arithmetic, algebra, geometry, astronomy and navigation with the aim of 'educat[ing] Russian young men and people of all the ranks and ages.' Even more significantly, it was here that he introduced Arabic, rather than traditional Cyrillic, numbers for the first time. Lomonosov himself used this work in his studies, referring to it as 'the gates of knowledge.' Published in an edition of 2400 copies, it was used widely as a textbook for almost a century, and is something of a rarity, especially when complete. Magnitskii's work reflects the progressive thinking that started to dominate during the reign of Peter the Great.
