Jahrhundert dort weilende und später als "erste deutsche Dichterin" in die Literaturgeschichte eingegangene Nonne Roswitha von Gandersheim (um 935 - nach 973).

Atys, to a libretto by Philippe Quinault after Ovid's Fasti, was first performed at court, St Germain-en-Laye, on January 10, 1676. "Lully's fourth tragedy was known as 'the king's opera'... Atys combines the brilliant use of spectacle and intricately structured divertissements in Lully's earlier operas with more subtly structured recitative dialogues and a new seriousness of dramatic content. Burlesque scenes and subplots are absent for the first time and do not return in subsequent operas. Inward conflict, a prominent feature of the late tragedies Roland and Armide but virtually absent from most of Quinault's other librettos, is present here. Although Atys is not Lully's only opera to end sorrowfully, it is the only one to conclude with unmitigated tragedy." Lois Rosow in Grove Music Online The publisher's catalogue preceding the title lists the following Lully operas, with individual prices: Proserpine, Atys, Alceste, Phaeton, Roland, Persée, Armide, Amadis, and Thesée (in order of appearance)..

Soror Cruz
Valencia & Barcelona: Antonio Bordazar / Joseph Llopis / Rafael Figuero. Condition: Good. Published 1709, 1693, 1701, 8vo, limp vellum, good set with some wrinkling and staining to vellum, the first volume with quite a bit of worming to last two thirds of the contents, mainly to inner margin but sometimes to text itself, second volume with much less worming, but some to outer margin of last 30 pages, hardly ever to text; third volume with moderate to heavy worming but not affecting text that horribly. (16) 351 (9) pp, followed by two blank leaves; (8) 467 (5) pp.; (128) 210 (5) pp. First volume has a 19th century engraving of the author crudely pasted to flyleaf. The second volume was first published in Sevilla the year before; this 1693 edition, done while the author was still alive, includes some works not in the first edition. The poet, known as the Mexican Phoenix, is now admired for her early proto-feminist works (her criticism of misogyny earned her the condemnation of the Bishop of Puebla, she was forced to sell her library and do charitable work, dying the year after, in 1695). The three volumes are not often found together, and were to be considered as separately published works. Early reprints of her works achieve steadily high auction records, especially in Mexico, where each of these volumes has fetched as much as 54,000 MXP (about $2800 each). The worming, while significant, does not impede the reading experience of these books very much. A very rare set of one of the finest Mexican authors of the golden age.

First published in 1681, "this work established the study of diplomatics. Written as a refutation of Daniel Papebroch's questioning of the authority of several of the charters in the Benedictine Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Pres, the work established new principles for the study of documents, and was well received by, amongst others, Colbert and his successor Le Tellier. At the behest of the latter, Louis XIV, sent Mabillon in 1685 to Italy, where he acquired some 3000 books and manuscripts for the royal collection. The Supplementum of 1704 was written in response to the Jesuit Germon's attempt to disprove Mabillon's theories" (Macclesfield 4590).

Paris, 1709. In-4, broché, 8 pages. Après avoir constaté que rien n'a été engagé par la politique des Invalides pour prendre en charge les Marins et les risques potentiels dus à leur métier, Louis XIV instaure un système de cotisations et de prélèvements directement auprès des armateurs, des capitaines de navires et sur les salaires des marins pour constituer ce qui peut s'appeler, avant l'heure, un véritable projet de sécurité sociale. Ce texte, sauf erreur de notre part, n'a jamais été republié bien qu'il soit riche en échos du futur. En effet il se situe avant la naissance de Piarron de Chamousset et surtout un an avant la publication par Vauban de La dîme royale dont l'esprit peut apparaître comme jumeau de ce texte. Est-ce trop interpréter l'histoire que de se poser la question : Vauban n'a-t-il pas pu intervenir dans le genèse de ce généreux texte qui n'a pas eu de suite ? Cela lorsqu'on sait que sa disgrâce soudaine a été liée à la publication de cette oeuvre et que, sauf erreur des historiens, il était encore auréolé auprès du guerrier vieillissant d'une confiance liée aux réseaux de fortifications qui avaient fait sa réputation.

Monier, woodcut device on title page, woodcut initials, head- and tail-pieces, large folding double-page facsimile, 58 full-page engravings in the pagination (15 double-page), plus several smaller woodcut illustrations; bound with: Librorum De re Diplomatica supplemtetum..., Luteciae-Parisiorum: Caroli Robustel, 1704, pp. viii, 116; woodcut device on title page, woodcut initials, head- and tail-pieces, 8 engraved folding facsimiles and 2 full-page engraved facsimiles in the pagination, 6 smaller engravings and 5 woodcuts in the text; contemporary full calf, gilt-decorated spine, new red morocco label; occasional spots and stains throughout, leaves occasionally wrinkled, some neat restoration at the joints and corners; in all a good, sound, and complete copy. First published in 1681, "this work established the study of diplomatics. Written as a refutation of Daniel Papebroch's questioning of the authority of several of the charters in the Benedictine Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Pres, the work established new principles for the study of documents, and was well received by, amongst others, Colbert and his successor Le Tellier. At the behest of the latter, Louis XIV, sent Mabillon in 1685 to Italy, where he acquired some 3000 books and manuscripts for the royal collection. The Supplementum of 1704 was written in response to the Jesuit Germon's attempt to disprove Mabillon's theories" (Macclesfield 4590).

William Shakespeare; Nicholas Rowe
Volumes I-V are in uniform bindings as a set, with the pages trimmed down. Volume VI is bound in a different half calf binding with larger page sizes due to their not being trimmed as closely as volumes I-V. The sixth volume could be trimmed and bound to match. This is the first edition of this work, edited by Nicholas Rowe. It is the first edition of Shakespeare's works to be published in the eighteenth century and has been referred to as the first 'modern' edition of the plays. As stated to the title page of volume I this set was originally published as six volumes as seen here. A seventh volume was published by a different publisher, E Curll, a year later in 1710 which added his poetry and critical remarks on his plays by C Gildon and is sometimes seen bound together with this set. This set contains all six volumes of Shakespeare's dramatic works edited by Rowe and is as originally published. Due to this work, Rowe is widely considered to be the first editor of Shakespeare. His practical knowledge helped him to divide the plays into both scenes and acts, including the entrances and exits of the players. He was also one of the first to prefix each play with a list of the dramatis personae and to write a 'life of the author'. The work is based on the somewhat textually corrupt Fourth Folio. To volume VI signature A4 under the 'here' of 'where.' and to volume I signature 'A' under the 'G of Goodness'. This copy is not the lineatim reprint issued in the same year. [ESTC T138296] Rowe basing his edition on the Fourth Folio paved the way for eighteenth century editors of Shake … [Click Below for Full Description]

BOERHAAVE, Herman.
Arnold Arboretum I, p. 91; ESTC T130372; Henrey 463; Kuijlen & Wijnands 91. Third edition, with corrections and an expanded index, of Boerhaave's description of the plants in Leiden University's botanical garden. It gives an account of the various species, including the origins of the plants, their names, characteristics and possible medicinal properties. It includes trees, herbs, flowers, mushrooms and marine plants, including cannabis and various American, East Indian and other exotic species. Upon his appointment as professor of medicine and botany at Leiden University in 1709, Herman Boerhaave (1668-1738) automatically became head of the botanical garden. He published his first catalogue of plants, Index plantarum, in 1710, and added more than two thousand species by the second edition in 1720, reflecting Boerhaave's extensive additions to the garden. Although the present work bears Boerhaave's name, it is believed to have been prepared by one of his students with the aid of lecture notes.With a manuscript note in the fore-edge margin of the title-page, referring to the part-two title-page. Lacking the final blank leaf. With very slight browning, but otherwise in very good condition. The hinges are cracked and the spine label and extremities slightly damaged, but the binding is otherwise good. Revised edition of an important botanical catalogue, especially valuable for its insights into Boerhaave's teaching methods.

Virgil; Mr [John] Dryden (translator)
London: Jacob Tonson, 1709. The third edition of this popular translation. From the antiquarian library of Christopher Rowe. Christopher Rowe was a schoolmaster in Norwich and then in Bristol. Throughout his career he inspired many to love literature, history and music. He was a specialist on 17th century printer and bookseller, Humphrey Moseley and began his, unfortunately unfinished, PhD dissertation on him. With thirty-three plates to volume I, forty plates to volume II and thirty three plates to volume III. Collated, collation only available for volumes I and III, though as plates are numbered in continuation across all volumes can be assumed volume II is also therefore complete. All volumes are complete. John Dryden's translation of Virgil was a national event. It brought Dryden the hefty sum of £1,400 and was first published by subscription in 1697. Although popular at its time of release, Dryden's translation of Virgil's poetry received some criticism, particularly from Wordsworth. Wordsworth complained that Dryden's descriptions of natural objects were inferior in comparison to the original Latin. Virgil was an ancient Roman poet of the Augustan period. He wrote three of the most famous poems in Latin literature, the Eclogues, Georgics and his epic Aeneid, all of which are translated into English in these three volumes. In full calf bindings with blind stamped detailing to boards. Externally, worn. Heavy rubbing to the spines and joints of volumes I and III.

Attributed to:) Thomas, Antoine]
[S.n.], [S.l.], 1709. First edition. In contemporary leather. Gilt spine with red title label. Edges of the panels gilt. Marbled endpapers. Tinted edges. (12), 308 p. Scarce publication related to the endgame of the Chinese Rites Controversy. Antoine Thomas (adopted the Chinese name of Ngan To P'Ing-Che; 1644-1709), was a Belgian Jesuit priest, missionary, and astronomer at the imperial court of China. He was the Superior of the Jesuits in China when the Chinese rites were banned by the Papal Legate. Thomas arrived in China as a Jesuit missionary in 1685, and due to his expertise in mathematics, he soon gained important posts in the court which led him to become a close adviser to the Kangxi Emperor. As such he obtained an edict of tolerance from the Chinese ruler in 1692, that gave to the missionaries almost complete freedom to preach Christianity. Meanwhile the dispute among the Roman Catholic missionaries, the so-called Chinese Rites Controversy was raging. The Jesuits argued that the Chinese rituals and Confucianism were secular customs, thus should be tolerated, the Dominicans and the Franciscans disagreed and urged Rome to condemn and ban these rites. In 1705 Pope Clement XI sent Charles Thomas Maillard de Tournon, as a papal legate to China. In 1707 Tournon issued a decree to communicate the prohibition of Chinese rites. Tournon's book about the matter "Memoires pour Rome, sur l'état de la Religion Chrétienne dans la Chine, avec le décret de Notre S.P. le Pape Clément XI. sur l'affaire des cultes chinois" was published in 1709 and immediately a reply, attributed to A … [Click Below for Full Description]

Single leaf, evidently extracted from a nonce volume (with traces of calf along one edge), 12.75 x 8 inches, with a printed docket title on the verso. An early example of industry lobbying, a petition to Parliament on the loss of jobs across England due to public mourning; among those affected by the evident sumptuary restrictions and named here include weavers, silk-dyers, silk-throwers, traders with Turkey and Italy, and the white bone lace-makers of Bedford, Buckingham, and Northampton (who ìamount to Fourty Thousand [sic], whose whole Dependence was on this Manufacture, and are now, by Reason of this Present Mourning, Reducíd to the last Extremity by the Loss of their Tradeî). Hanson assigns the date [1706] to this petition, which is followed by ESTC (which notes a single copy, at Chethamís Library in Manchester)óthough given that the text begins, ìThat at the Death of the Prince of Denmark, the Colouríd Silk Goods in the Mercers Hands, within the Bills of Mortality, by a Moderate Computation, Amounted to the Value of Three Hundred and Fifty Thousand Pounds, and upwards; the greatest Part whereof lyes Dead on their Hands to this Day,î this would suggest that the plea dates to after the death of Queen Anneís consort Prince George of Denmark and Norway, Duke of Cumberland, on October 28, 1708; further, the History and Proceedings of the House of Commons: 1706-1713 (London, 1742), vol. 4, pp. 139 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Le travail scientifique de Reinzer est largement basé sur celui de Anathasius Kircher, mais il y a ajouté cette étrange teinte philosophique et politique. Le résultat étrange et tout à fait original de ce livre lui valut un franc succès. Franciscus Reinzer fut un écrivain et un professeur Jésuite, il enseigna les humanités à Vienne, la philosophie à Linz... Au verso du frontispice, un cachet de bibliothèque : Bibliotek des stiftes Heligenkreuz. - Photos sur www.Edition-originale.co … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Alf layla wa-layla - French].
8vo. 6 vols. (24), 312 pp. (8), 352 pp. (12), 322 pp. (12), 323, (1) pp. (6), 228 pp. (6), 456 pp. Contemporary mottled calf, gold-tooled spines on five raised bands, gilt labels to spines, red sprinkled edges. The first six volumes of the original edition of the Arabian Nights, considered unobtainable in all twelve volumes as published by Antoine Galland from 1704 onwards. Of the utmost rarity: not a single copy of any of the original issues (even separate volumes or incomplete sets) traceable at auction or in the trade within the last decades; even the Bibliothèque nationale de France holds only an incomplete set (lacking vol. 3, cf. FRBNF33486572), while all but four (Univ. of Indiana, UCLA, Princeton, and Newberry) of the 91 entries in OCLC refer either to separate volumes or incomplete sets. The Newberry (OCLC 919637686) and Princeton copies seem to be identical with ours, describing the imprint as "Lyon, chez Antoine Briasson" dated 1709-17 (Princeton: 1706-20). The twelve volumes initially appeared over a period of 13 years, but due to their immense popularity the separately published volumes were reissued multiple times by their original three printers in Paris and Lyon, and so all known sets - complete or incomplete - are made up of various issues of the original edition. "With our present knowledge, we cannot distinguish those reissues or tell whether any real differences entered into them" (Macdonald, 388). Pirated editions, too, appeared at once in Holland; only in 1726 did a distinctive second edition appear in six volumes (Chauvin 21B: "recherchée en raison de … [Click Below for Full Description]

POLENI, Giovanni (1683-1761). -
Venezia, Pavino, 1709. In-4 (215 x 153 mm.). Solida legatura coeva in pelle marrone; piccole mancanze alle cuffie. Con 9 tavole ripiegate incise in rame. (8), 56 pp.; fresco esemplare. Edizione originale della prima opera del Poleni con la quale ottenne, a soli 26 anni, la cattedra di astronomia e meteore all'università di Padova. La Miscellanea è una raccolta di studi su svariati argomenti scientifici, tra cui i barometri, i termometri, e la descrizione di una "Machina arithmetica" di sua invenzione. Si tratta della prima macchina calcolatrice inventata e realizzata in Italia. Poleni sapeva delle calcolatrici realizzate da Pascal e da Leibniz nel secolo precedente, ma non ne conosceva il funzionamento, per cui ne progettò una del tutto nuova con "un meccanismo completamente diverso da quello utilizzato da Leibniz (...) ma l'idea forse più innovativa di Poleni consiste nel fatto che la macchina era costruita in modo da separare nettamente la parte di impostazione dei dati da quella del calcolo vero e proprio, cosa che ritroveremo praticamente in tutte le macchine progettate dal XIX secolo" (D. Casalegno, Uomini e computer, Storia delle macchine che hanno cambiato il mondo, pp.33-34). DSB XI, p.65. Riccardi II, 290. First edition of Poleni's first publication. It contains a description of his arithmetical calculating machine, which proved to be the first calculating machine with gears with a variable number of teeth (so called pin-wheel), a great improvement on the proto-computers of Pascal and Leibniz. The Miscellanea also includes dissertations on barometers, thermometer … [Click Below for Full Description]
