Braun, J. H.
Altorfii Noricorum (Nürnberg), Iod. G. Kohlesius, 1723. Small 4to (19.0 x 16.2 cm). Title page, [ii], 100 pp., one engraved map of the Nürenberg area and one peculiar engraving showing a crossbowman on a beehive with two coats-of-arms: one of Crenan, Leidlarius, Eschanson and Butigul, and one engraved initial letter. Medieval-style contemporary parchment binding with hand-tooled hunting scenes including deer, birds and lions. Edges red. A most curious and probably rare book, being a thesis on apiculture and forestry containing 24 chapters and appendices written in Latin. These are followed by a "Mantissa documentorum quae ad historiam Butigulariorum item et Zeidelariorum atque Forestariorum Norimbergensium, magis illustrandam, facere possunt" - a series of documents numbered I-XVIIII [SIC] being letters in Latin and, later, High German, with Latin comments. These deal mainly with legal matters on forestry and the use of woods (known as "Wald-Ordnung"), and apiculture rights (so-called "Hönig-Geld", or "honey money") in the area around Nürnberg in southern Germany. Christian Gottlieb Schwarz (1675-1751) was a philosophy and history professor in Altdorf; Johann Hieronymus Braun was one of his students. The binding is highly unusual, and a work of art in itself. A very good, clean copy.

[Compagnie des Indes]
Paris, 1723. 4pp. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Minor foxing. Contemporary inscription. Near fine. A French royal decree calling for an assembly to elect trustees for the Compagnie des Indes. In 1721, the Compagnie had declared bankruptcy and was reorganized, after the Mississippi Bubble burst. Wroth records only the copy at NYPL, and OCLC adds just two more, at Harvard and the University of Minnesota. Rare. From the library of Cardinal Etienne Charles de Lomenie de Brienne (1727-94), Minister of Louis XVI, Archbishop of Toulouse and of Sens. A friend of Voltaire and a member of the Acad�mie Fran�aise, Brienne wielded significant power as head of the Finance Ministry, which earned him many enemies. He died in prison during the French Revolution, despite having renounced Catholicism in 1793 (presumably as an attempt to save his life). WROTH, ACTS OF FRENCH ROYAL ADMINISTRATION 1012.

[CIREZ (Adrien-Joseph)]
S.l. [Lille], s.d. [vers 1723], in-12 oblong (12 x 16 cm), en feuille. Petit prospectus signalant l'arrivée d'un praticien itinérant dans une ville, selon un procédé alors universellement en usage. "Le Sr. Cirez, expert pour les dents, connu en cette ville, y est présentement arrivé, ou il a été appellé par plusieurs personnes de qualité, à cause de l'art merveilleux qu'il possède pour la propreté de la bouche & la conservation des dents". Dans le langage moderne, on dirait que le sieur Cirez est plus stomatologue que dentiste, mais ni l'une ni l'autre de ces spécialités n'étaient évidemment constituée scientifiquement à l'époque ; le sieur Adrien-Joseph Cirez était donc un empirique sans doute un peu (ou beaucoup) charlatan, qui profitait du grand délabrement des bouches à l'époque. Son autorisation d'exercer à Lille qui date d'août 1723 le définit d'ailleurs comme "tireur et nettoyeur de dents".

1723. Prima edizione. Cm.22,9x16,5. Pg.(4), 36. Legatura coeva in buon cartoncino decorato a rilievo su tonalità bleu ed oro, sbiadite, con spellature. Una tavola incisa a doppia pagina raffigurante la "Descrizione dell'altezza delle Calle". Due testate di Teodoro Vercruysse, con vedutine fra loro uguali, ubicate all'inizio dei due testi.

A Paris, De l'imprimerie d'Atoine-Urbain Coustelier, 1723 1 volume in-12 (16,3 x 9,7 cm) de (7)-147 pages. Reliure plein maroquin bleu nuit, dos à nerfs richement orné, triple-filet doré en encadrement des plats, double-filet doré sur les coupes, tranches dorées, jeu de roulettes et filets dorés en encadrement intérieur des plats, doublures et gardes de papier peigne (reliure de la seconde moitié du XIXe siècle signée Chambolle-Duru). Exemplaire à l'état proche du neuf. Quelques légères rousseurs. La Farce de Maître Pathelin (ou La Farce de Maistre Pierre Pathelin, La Farce de Pathelin, Farce Maître Pierre Pathelin, Farce de Maître Pathelin) est une pièce de théâtre (du genre de la farce) composée à la fin du Moyen Âge, vers 1456-1460. La première édition imprimée est datable de 1485. Souvent considérée comme anonyme, cette œuvre est parfois attribuée à Guillaume Alexis, voire à François Villon. Les références au monde de la justice (procès, juge, avocat...) émaillant la pièce, certains avancent qu'elle a pu être écrite par un homme de justice. Mais, d'après Bruno Roy, l'auteur le plus probable serait Triboulet, le bouffon de René d'Anjou. La pièce constitue le meilleur et l'un des plus anciens chefs-d'œuvre du théâtre comique médiéval ; elle est, en outre, souvent considérée comme la première pièce comique de la littérature française. Maître Pathelin, avocat rusé, anciennement populaire mais désormais sans cause, décide de refaire sa garde-robe sans que cela lui coûte un sou. Il dupe et vole le drapier Guillaume Joceaulme ; Pathelin emporte une pièce de tissu et invi … [Click Below for Full Description]

FERONI Silvio.
Venezia 1723 - Prima edizione. Cm.22,9x16,5. Pg.(4), 36. Legatura coeva in buon cartoncino decorato a rilievo su tonalità bleu ed oro, sbiadite, con spellature. Una tavola incisa a doppia pagina raffigurante la "Descrizione dell'altezza delle Calle". Due testate di Teodoro Vercruysse, con vedutine fra loro uguali, ubicate all'inizio dei due testi. Capilettera e vignette calcografiche. Interessanti disquisizioni idrauliche, da inserire nel lungo dibattito sulla bonifica del territorio compreso fra Firenze e il mare. Il marchese Feroni, in tal senso, scrisse due altri saggi di rilievo, le "Osservazioni intorno alla palude di Fucecchio" (Lucca, per Sebastiano Domenico Cappuri, 1721) e i "Ragionamenti intorno allo stato del fiume Arno, e dell'acque della Valdinievole" (Colonia, appresso Hans Wetergroot, 1732). > Melzi, II, 452, attribuisce la paternità al marchese Silvio Feroni, ma segnala altresì che Tiraboschi propende invece per il nome di Eduardo Corsini. Anche Moreni, I, 364, fa il nome del Feroni, come pure Inghirami, I, 273. 100 gr. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
