Basierend auf seinen Erfahrungen und auch zur Rechfertigung seines Verhaltens (er hatte 1472 seinen Dienstherrn Herzog Karl verlassen und war in die Dienste von dessen Erzfeind getreten) schrieb er zweibändige Memoiren, die ebenso Musterbeispiele französischer Geschichtsschreibung wie der französischen Memoiren-Literatur überhaupt sind. Zugleich galten sie als Lehrbuch für Politik und (Geheim)-Diplomatie. Die Porträtkupfer zeigen Marie de Bourgogne, Maximilian von Österreich, Karl von Burgund und Karl VIII. Eine schöne, wiewohl deutlich gekürzte Ausgabe der Memoiren erschien 1920 bei Georg Müller in München.

Numerous astronomical diagrams in the text (many heightened in red) & a double-page world map. 26; 21; 34; 23; 26 folding leaves. Five vols. 8vo, orig. patterned wrappers, orig. block-printed title label on upper covers (several quite rubbed, one vol. with some marginal worming), new stitching. Osaka: 1706. First edition of the author's most important book. Baba (active 1712-18), wrote about thirty books on divination, astronomy, the calendar, Chinese military tales, illustrated commentaries of Confucian classics, and miscellaneous pieces covering a wide range of topics from Chinese to magic tricks. He was among the first of the Japanese astronomers to introduce new astronomical views influenced by Western knowledge. This book and its sequel Tenmon zusetsu [trans.: Illustrated astronomical diagrams, 1713] "gained a great contemporary reputation particularly because of their explanation of solar eclipses which in Japan as elsewhere in the world had been a subject for much superstition."-Grant Goodman, Japan and the Dutch 1600-1853, p. 92. "Another popularizer of Western astronomy was Baba Nobutake, a Kyoto physician who wrote several primers on astronomy...[He] studied Western science through Chinese translations. His most important work, the Tenmon shogaku sho (An Introduction to Astronomy, 1706) [the present work], went a step farther than previous studies in adapting Western views. For instance, instead of the theory of yin-yang, Baba employed the idea of magnetics to explain that the tides on earth are caused by the moon.

Ouvrage de Pierre de Lesconvel, imprimé probablement vers 1706 à Liège ou à Paris. Le portrait en frontispice représente le duc de Bourgogne. Ce roman qui appartient au genre de l'utopie parut en 1703 sous le titre de "Idée d'un Règne doux et heureux". Cet ouvrage, dédié au duc de Bourgogne, eut un grand succès et fait penser au Télémaque de Fénelon. Il est utile pour l'étude des moeurs à la fin du règne de Louis XIV. En réalité, l'auteur critique tout ce qui existe en France et expose comment il conçoit le gouvernement futur de son pays. (Bourgeois et André 3094).

Very Good. Hardcover. Daniel Defoe (1660-1731) remains commonly known today; as a sharp-witted political commentator, agitator, satirist, and writer. He published a great number of works; under his own name, as well as anonymously and pseudonomously. This work - the Divine Right, a Satire - was published in response to the accepted assertions made during Defoe's lifetime about the powers of absolute moncarhs and the duties of 'obedience' and 'non-resistance' owed to them by their people. Within, Defoe asserts that reasonability and natural law are or ought to be the true bases of justice. The book is dedicated 'to the Most Serene, Most Invincible, and Most Illustrious Lady Reason: First Monarchof the World: The Almightys Representative and Resident in the Souls of Men;' and is set an attractive, dark-brown calfskin binding, with charming designs embossed on both boards, and a ribbed spine.

The Abbey of Saint-Denis is inextricably bound up with the history of France, and this sumptuous history with its superb engravings of its treasures remains one of best and most-cited books on the Abbey. The Abbey was dissolved during the French Revolution, and it was significantly damaged as well. It was subsequently restored, under Napoleon III, by Viollet-le-Duc. The relics of St-Denis, which had been transferred to the parish church of the town in 1795, were brought back again to the abbey in 1819. "While contemporary scholars have increasingly problematized the idea of a single Gothic "origin," Saint-Denis is popularly viewed as the site where various structural, spatial, and iconographical components synthesized to result in the Gothic style. In every major survey of art history, the Gothic chapter begins with Saint-Denis. Current medieval architectural historians usually present a more nuanced pi … [Click Below for Full Description]

The Bigot library sale in 1706 was the first book auction conducted in Paris for which a catalogue was printed. The sale by auction of the Bigot family library was conducted by booksellers Jean Boudot, Charles Osmont and Gabriel Martin over the remarkably long duration of five months. This was Gabriel Martin's first catalogue, "and according to Bléchet, Jean-Pierre Nicéron was an editor" (North, Printed Catalogues of French Book Auctions and Sales by Private Treaty 1643-1830 in the Library of the Grolier Club, no. 12). Prior to this auction several auction catalogues for private libraries had been printed in Paris, but these libraries were sold privately and thus never went to auction. Bookseller, publisher and writer Prosper Marchand organized and catalogued the sale for Boudot, Martin and Osmont.

George Fox
London -T. Sowle14 by 9; [xii]1090[6]pp., 1706 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A collection of short pieces arranged by the founding father of the Quaker movement himself. George Fox (1624-91) was the son of a textile weaver who by 1650 had inherited a large enough fortune to be without financial concerns. With little education and a deep sense of dissatisfaction with the manner in which religion was practiced in England, he left home on tour in order to seek englightenment. By 1647 he was convinced of the 'inner light' by which God communicates directly with the soul; a conviction which led naturally to the assertion that it was God's calling (and not a degree from a famous university) that endowed a person with the wherewithall to be a minister. Fox spent the rest of his life as a peripatetic; preaching to all and sundry, and exhibiting formidable tolerance when persecuted - a situation he found himself in frequently, given that he opposed Trinitarianism, the collection of tithes, and oath-giving as he found them biblically unjustified. Having been imprisoned on a number of occasions for his activities, Fox urged pacifism in disputes. Fox's followerscame to be calledQuakers, after their behaviour at worship. Fox founded the Society of Friends and travelled the world over, continuing his custom of preaching his understanding of whatever he believed to beGod's will to any who would listen. This volume contains 157 short pieces detailing many such ruminations. Condition: Externally bound in old calf, with contrasting label. Some wear to extremities Internally … [Click Below for Full Description]

APOLLONIUS, of Perga
Opera & studio Edmundi Halley... Numerous woodcuts in the text. Much Greek printing. 5 p.l., liii, 168 pp. 8vo, cont. panelled calf, remains of label on spine. Oxford: Sheldonian Theatre, 1706. First edition of Halley's translation of Apollonius's "cutting off a ratio" from an Arabic manuscript. This text of Apollonius, like Books V-VII of the Conics, survives only in Arabic, and in this case the Arabic remains unpublished. "Much of Halley's scholarship was exercised upon the works of Apollonius of Perga, one of the greatest mathematicians of antiquity, and indeed of all time, who flourished in the latter part of the third century B.C. One of his minor works, Sectio rationis (Cutting-off of a ratio), an exercise in geometrical algebra, was thought to be lost until an Arabic translation of it was found among the Selden manuscripts in the Bodleian and identified by Edward Bernard, the Savillian Professor of Astronomy. Bernard set about translating it into Latin; but the manuscript was very defective and he soon laid the task aside. His successor, David Gregory, made a fair copy of the original for the use of Henry Aldrich, Dean of Christ Church, at whose invitation Halley, upon succeeding Wallis in the Savillian Chair of Geometry, undertook to complete the translation. He had never previously studied Arabic; but, using as a key the few passages translated by Bernard, he eventually made out the meaning of the text. He proceeded to restore the lost companion tract, Sectio spatii, following hints from Pappus. He gave his reasons for regrading the works as genuine; an … [Click Below for Full Description]
