Hamburg: C. Liebezeit, 1704. Second edition (1st ed.: Paris: 1679) of "the most celebrated and frequently consulted seventeenth-century private library catalogue. The library was largely formed by Jacques Auguste De Thou (1553-1617), the eminent French historian and statesman. Although the purpose of its publication was the sale of the De Thou library, which took place in 1681, its continued usefulness called for a reprint in 1704 [the present edition]...Most of the descriptions are in fact not by the brothers Dupuy but by the well-known scientist Ismael Boulliau (1605-1694), who arranged them according to a bibliographical system which, with slight variations by Prosper Marchand (1676-1756), and Gabriel Martin (1679-1761), was the one most frequently adopted in France and became known as the 'Système des Libraires de Paris'."-Grolier Club, Bibliography, 76-(1st ed.). The "reprintings of catalogues of private libraries like those of the Thuana and the Aprosiana...are good evidence of the use of these catalogues as reference works. The books in all these collections have been scattered, and the reprinted catalogues could serve only bibliographers and scholars."-Taylor, Book Catalogues, p. 110-(who also notes on page 265 that Schelhorn preferred the 1704 edition). Very fine set. With the bookplate of Wm. Constable (all his books are in wonderfully fresh condition and this is no exception). ❧ Pollard & Ehrman, pp. 208-09 & 211-12. .

In contrast, the Lexicon Technicum neglects theology, antiquity, biography, and poetry". (Wikipedia).

        Topografia geometrica dell?Agro Romano

      Grande carta del territorio e della città di Roma in sei fogli. Facilmente riconoscibile la capitale con i principali monumenti raffigurati in alzato. Ottimo lo stato di conservazione. Le grandi dimensioni conferiscono di per se decoratività alla carta, la quale è arricchita di allegoriche. Nel cartiglio in alto a destra è interessante rilevare come gli attributi decorativi siano due cornucopie, simbolo di prosperità e ricchezza e della conchiglia che è sinonimo di fecondità. Nel cartiglio di sinistra in cui vi è iscritta la dedicatoria al Marchese Francesco Maria Ruspoli, due putti sostengono uno stemma famigliare con ogni probabilità riconducile al casato del Marchese mentre il drappo è sorretto da due figure femminili. Nella donna di sinistra si riconosce la raffigurazione della geometria allegoricamente raffigurata con un traguardo alla cui sommità è attaccata una corda dalla quale pende un piombo, mentre nella figura di destra si riconosce la prima delle nove muse Clio, la quale presiede alla storia, ed il suo nome tratto dal greco significa gloria ed onore. Insieme a queste figure due putti sostengono rispettivamente una tavola con figure geometriche mentre sull?altra sono iscritte le tabelline mm 910x1930

        Méthode pour faire une infinité de desseins differens, avec des carreaux mi-partis de deux couleurs par une ligne diagonale: ou observations du Père Dominique Doüat Religieux Carme de la Province de Toulouse sur une mémoire inseré dans l'histoire de l' Académie Royale des Sciences de Paris l'année 1704, présenté par le Reverend Père Sebastien Truchet, Religieux du même ordre, Academicien honoraire.Paris: F. de Laulne, C. Jombert & A. Cailleau, 1722. First edition.

      Marvelous presentation copy, inscribed by Douat and bound in royal red morocco, of "the earliest (and perhaps the rarest) treatise on the theory of design" (Gombrich). Douat's book is the first book which gives a systematic graphical treatment of the theory of patterns, permutations and combinatorics, a subject that under the influence of Pascal, Fermat and Leibnitz was at the forefront of mathematics at the time. <br/><br/> "There are few places where the approaches of the artist and the scientist intersect more intimately than in the production and analysis of tiling patterns" (Smith), and certainly in not many works is this intersection more evident than in this book. Douat's work is largely based, as also acknowledged in the title, upon a previous study published by his fellow Carmelite Sebastien Truchet, an engineer interested in mathematics and art but also an expert in hydraulics, an inventor and the designer of the 'Romain de Roy', the first mathematically determined typeface. The mathematical background of Douat's theory is based on the quite simple observation that a square diagonally divided in two triangles of different colors, can be rotated (90 degrees, clockwise) in four different positions: these four variants (indicated by Douat as A, B, C and D) represent the basis for any further development. Sets of two of such variants can be arranged in 16 different ways; sets of three variants give 64 permutations; sets of all four variants result in 256 permutations. Taking each one of the 256 possibilities to be further combined with each other one we obtain 2562 = 65536 permutations. If we take each of the 65536 ... and so on <i>ad infinitum</i>. The book is divided in four parts: the first giving the necessary background to produce the different variants; the second one gives several different patterns as example; the third one provides the necessary explanations for the previous part and the fourth one gives instructions to obtain different patterns without the use of the permutations table and without a previous drawing of the desired design. Douat's work is much enlarged with respect to Truchet's short paper from 1704. <br/><br/> Until recently, the importance of this book was not widely recognized and certainly not fully appreciated, perhaps because it falls rather uncomfortably between a treatise on mathematics and a treatise on design. Guilmard dismissed this book as an 'ouvrage curieux à consulter'. Gombrich, however, describes Douat's book as "the earliest (and perhaps the rarest) treatise on the theory of design ...".. Large 4to (244 x 191 mm), pp [xvi] [1] 2-189 (p 53 mispaginated 35) with initial and final blanks, and 28 engraved plates with 72 designs. Inscribed on the title page 'Ex dono autoris R. P. Domini Douat', large crowned coat of of arms to front and rear board, richly gilt spine, all edges gilt, fresh and clean throughout. An exceptional copy of this beutiful and rare book

Esemplare tratto dal primo volume del "Nouveau Theatre de l'Italie" pubblicato ad Amsterdam nel 1704 - 1705 e poi ancora nel 1724, quale integrazione al progetto di Johannes Blaeu, iniziato nel 1663, del grande "Libro delle citt?", manchevole di gran parte delle piante della parte settentrionale della penisola. L'opera del Mortier ? infatti in quattro volumi e comprende le lastre del Blaeu, ritoccate e modificate in piccola parte, e integrate dall'aggiunta di numerose nuove mappe su disegno proprio, appunto relative alle citt? della Toscana e del Nord Italia. L'atlante del Mortier venne pubblicato con testo latino, francese e olandese e la particolarit? che differenzia le edizioni del Mortier da quelle del Blaeu sta nel fatto che il testo non ? al verso della singola mappa (che quindi ? bianca al retro), ma si trova all'inizio di ogni singolo volume. Il grande successo dell'opera diede origine a un'ulteriore ristampa, praticamente identica, curata da R. Alberts e edita nel 1724 - '25 (Bibliografia: Cremonini, pp. 83 - 90).

Il grande successo dell'opera diede origine a un'ulteriore ristampa, praticamente identica, curata da R. Alberts e edita nel 1724 - '25 (Bibliografia: Cremonini, pp. 83 - 90). Nella parte superiore il Piano di Piombino e il Mare di Toscana; in piccolo riquadro alla met? sinistra del foglio, una porzione di terra circostante che comprende le isole e la costa fino all'Argentario; nella parte sottostante del foglio la bella veduta della vecchia citt? presa dal mare con vascelli in mare e titolo in piccolo cartiglio a svolazzo ("Veue de Piombine"); nel foglio sono presenti due rose dei venti. Bell'insieme assai decorativo, carta finemente incisa e in ottimo stato di conservazione.

        Discourses Concerning Government, Publish'd from an Original Manuscript. To which is Added, The Paper he deliver'd to the Sheriffs immediately before his Death. And an Alphabetical Table.

      London: Printed by J. Darby, 1704.. Second edition, folio, (viii), 424, (48) pp, with some mispagination. Portrait frontispiece, armorial bookplate of Admiral of the Fleet Sir William Rowley (c.1690-1768). Contemporary full panelled calf, rather worn with restoration to corners, rebacked in a lighter calf with a new label and new free endpapers. Elected to the Long Parliament in 1645, Sidney initially opposed the execution of Charles I, but changed his mind during the Interregnum. A period of exile after the Restoration saw him negotiating with Louis XIV for a planned English uprising, and once he had returned to England in 1677 he remained involved in republican politics. Implicated in the Rye House Plot, he was tried and beheaded in 1683. First published in 1698, this work cemented his reputation as a hero to the Whigs and later the Americans. A motto he wrote in a visitor's book at the University of Copenhagen was subsequently used on the Seal of Massachusetts.

        Itinerarium Athei ad Veritatis viam deducti; in quo Atheizantium objectae nebulae lucidissimo veritatis Sole disperguntur. Opusculum non minus curiosum, quàm fructuosum, argumentis tam sacris, quàm profanis, & à naturE lumine petitis stabilitum. In gratiam Erroneorum spirituum : quorum Principium, Oblivio Dei: Medium vita scelerata: Finis Gehenna

      Vienna: Krner 1704 Vienna: K¸rner, 1704. (EMBLEM BOOK) Second (?) edition (first published in Vienna, 1676). 12mo. Frontispiece and 7 engraved emblematic plates by Franz-Ambros (or Christoph) Dietel. [20], 240 pp. Text in Latin. Contemporary sheep, worn, small vertical tear at top of spine, but binding sound, first plate with small chip at outer edge (not affecting image), three small wormholes through first two leaves (reduced to one small hole through the next few), generally quite clean and crisp internally, with only occasional minor spotting. OCLC (no copies of the 1704 edition) . An extremely rare and curious emblem book, with the text in the form of seven dialogues between Vir Politicus and Theologicus by the Hungarian Jesuit theologian Johann Raicsani (or Janos Rajcsanyi). The dialogues concern (1) The Existence of God; (2) Divine Providence; (3) Fate; (4) Predestination and Divine Prescience; (5) Immortality of the Soul; (6) On Gehenna; and (7) Resurrection of the Dead. Along with a frontispiece, each dialogue is preceded by an emblematic engraving by the Viennese artist/engraver Franz-Ambros Dietel (d. 1737?). They are extraordinary, and frequently visionary, pictorial representations of the substance of each of the dialogues. The frontispiece is signed "A. Dietel fecit" and others simply "D." Dietel and his brother Christoph, sons of Stephan Dietel, were engravers residing in Vienna during the early 18th-century. The plates depart from the usual format of the emblem book in that there is no motto; but the symbolic content of the images, each with an accompanying verse from the Vulgate, places it squarely in the tradition. Evidently Raicsani's text was first published in Vienna in 1676; this appears to be the second Vienna edition (possibly preceded by a 1700 edition printed in Passau - the date is uncertain); and reprints appear as late as 1757. It is not at all clear whether the Dietel plates appeared in the 1686 edition. As Franz-Ambros' birth is frequently given as 1682, it may be that the father contributed to the first edition, and the brothers to the 1704 edition. The fact is, all editions are rare: we can locate no copy of any edition in the united states; only one copy (the Passau edition, at Oxford) in the British Isles; and only two copies anywhere (Bavaria State Library and Austrian National Library) of this 1704 edition

In lucem editum Opera, & Studio Fratris Francisci Antonii Felicis Carosi de Monte Leone Provinciae Sancti Francisci ejusdem Ordinis Sacerdotis. Montefalisco [Montefiascone], Ex Typographia Seminarii, 1704.

      In 4, [mm. 287 x 201], pp. (10) ? 104 ? 78 (ma 80 perché le pp. 71-72 sono ripetute) ? (2) ? 16 con antiporta e 12 tavv. incise f.t. ben 10 delle quali più volte ripiegate. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena con piccola mancanza all'angolo inferiore del piatto anteriore. Titolo calligrafato, etichetta con antica collocazione al dorso. Grandi capilettera e fregi figurati nel testo. Al risguardo anteriore nota di possesso calligrafata: P Guard.o Amat.e. La grande antiporta allegorica parzialmente staccata e rifilata, illustra il passo della Genesi ?Et fluvius egrediebatur de loco voluptatis ad irrigandum paradisum ..? scritto entro un cartiglio che sormonta lo stemma di Clemente XI cui il volume è dedicato e che figura anche al frontespizio. La scena è affiancata da due pilastri sormontati da putti che sorreggono il cordone francescano, mentre le fronti presentano San Francesco sulla sinistra e Sant'Antonio da Padova, nella consueta iconografia con il Bambino in braccio seduto sul libro del Vangelo ed il giglio, sulla destra. Ai loro piedi passano le acque del fiume che sgorga dal trono su cui è seduta una figura femminile con il sole nella mano destra sollevata; in basso nelle acque ci sono il saio ed il cordone e delle bisacce (?). Le dodici tavole sono state disegnate ed incise in rame da Francesco Providoni (1633-1703) raffigurano nell'ordine: il Colle dell'Inferno, il luogo dove venivano eseguite le condanne a morte e dove poi verrà edificato il Sacro Convento con la città di Assisi circondata dalle mura; il prospetto e la pianta del luogo in cui è conservato il corpo di San Francesco; le due grandi vedute (mm. 290 x 423 ) del Sacro Convento, il Collis Paradisi visto da sud e da nord; il prospetto della chiesa e del convento di Rivotorto; l'aspetto originario del convento della Porziuncola con sullo sfondo la città di Assisi ed ancora, ben evidenziato il Collis Inferni; la pianta del complesso del convento di Santa Maria degli Angeli; l'altra grande veduta ? delle dimensioni di quelle del Sacro Convento ? della Chiesa di Santa Maria degli Angeli raffigurata in uno spaccato che permette di vedere all'interno la Porziuncola; la pianta ed i prospetto della cappella della Vergine; le Carceri; la veduta della chiesa e del convento di San Damiano; la chiesa ed il monastero di Santa Chiara. Antiporta parzialmente staccata ed ultima tavola con strappo al margine interno che non lede l'immagine. Piccole macchie dovute al tipo di carta soprattutto al quinterno G. Qualche lieve alone al margine esterno di poche carte. L'opera di padre Francesco Maria Angeli, nativo di Rivotorto venne fatta stampare postuma dal confratello Francesco Antonio Felice Carosi da Monteleone e raccoglie tutta la storia del convento, dalla scelta del luogo in cui essere sepolto fatta da San Francesco, alla traslazione delle spoglie, fino alla descrizione delle pitture e delle reliquie. La seconda parte dell'opera con propria numerazione riporta invece tutte le bolle, i diplomi ed i privilegi concessi dai Pontefici, mentre le ultime sedici pagine numerate sono invece per l'opera Icon amoris Christi, & Francisci Duobus Epigrammatum Centiriis expressa di fra Baldassarre Paglia da Caltagirone, dedicata al cardinale Gregorio Barbarigo, che venne eletto tale nel 1658 da Alessandro VI, che lo aveva voluto presso di lui a Roma, e lo aveva anche incaricato dell'emergenza creata dalla peste scoppiata nel 1656. Morì nel e venne beatificato nel 1761 da Clemente XIII, nel 1960 verrà proclamato Santo da Giovanni XXIII.
