Le vray Pescheur Fidèle (Simon Lacourt) (Ed. by)
Bordeaux: Pierre Calamy, 1721. First edition. Hardcover. g+ to vg. 24mo (6 1/4 x 4"). 88, 8pp. Modern half calf over marbled paper covered boards, with gold lettering to spine. Modern endpapers and fly leaves. Woodblock frontispiece and title page. Decorative headpieces. Rare "Almanach des Dieux" (Almanach of the Gods) for the year 1722, containing a calendar, articles on remedies to stay safe from the plague, on how to grow fruit trees, etc.. Also includes a list of the births and deaths which occured in the French Royal family from 1645 to 1720, a list of the main Fairs in the kingdom, a list of arrivals and departures of mail coaches from Bordeaux, etc.. This almanach is prefaced by an anti-semitic text titled "récit véritable" (true story) about a certain Felix Coën, a Jewish messianic pretender in Ferrara (Italy) supposedly crowned on August 2, 1721 by the local rabbi at the synagogue, while a gentile newborn was being bled to death, and his blood collected to be used for Challah bread. The story ends with the Inquisitor of Ferrara arresting the rabbi, the whole Jewish assistance and Felix Coën, and preparing their upcoming trials. This ritual murder calumny was used by the Christian Church in its persecution of the Jews. To accentuate the horror supposed to be felt by any "good" Christian reader, this anti-semitic text is accompanied by an impressive 9 x 8" folded plate (image: 8 3/8 x 7") in red ink depicting the gruesome scene. At verso, also printed in red, is an advertisement from publisher … [Click Below for Full Description]

AUBREY, John.
Printed for A. Bettesworth and J. Battley in Pater-Noster-Row J . Pemberton in Fleet Street a E. Currll in the Strand., London, 1721. Hardcover. Octavo. [ii] + xvi + 236pp. Contemporary blind ruled calf, professionally and very neatly rebacked with original gilt embellished spine laid over, and original boards, corners sympathetically renewed, gilt titled spine label. One engraved plate. An attractive early edition of this study by John Aubrey (1626-97). Despite the book's rather ambiguous title - 'Miscellanies' - the contents are made clear by its lengthy subtitle, and by the 'Introductory Title' which appears on page one: 'A Collection of Hermetick Philosophy.' Aubrey was fascinated by the occult and supernatural, and 'Miscellanies' is a broad-ranging study, with sections on auspicious and inauspicious dates, omens, communications with angels, and magick, as well as a study of ‘second sight’ (the ability to foresee future events through divine inspiration) that is reputed to be the first treatment of the subject to appear in print. The chapter on "Magick" includes a few short references to witches and witchcraft: notably "Vervain and dill, Hinders witches from their will", and several stories recounting methods used to hinder witchcraft. The book was first published in 1696. This second edition, revised and enlarged, includes an account of the author's life. Light overall rubbing and wear to boards, armorial bookplate and private library plate on front pastedown, endpapers browned and a bit foxed, a little scattered browning and light foxing, a few lightly creased corners … [Click Below for Full Description]
