      Amsterdam, aux dépens de la Compagnie, 1725, in-12, 12 volumes, basane marbrée, dos à nerfs, pièces de titre orange et tomaisons tabac, armes frappées sur les plats supérieurs [Peter von Biron], Texte complet des Mémoires du duc de Sully, ministre des finances et compagnon d'armes d'Henri IV. Ensemble en reliure uniforme, passablement décoratif, mais surtout de provenance très intéressante : aux armes de Peter von Biron (1724-1800), duc de Courlande dans l'actuelle Lettonie, fils de Ernst Johann von Bühren. Ernst Johann, qui avait francisé son nom en Biron, avait été propulsé à la tête du duché en 1737 par l'impératrice de Russie Anna Ivanovna. La mort de sa protectrice en 1740 le fit tomber en disgrâce : il fut envoyé en Sibérie pour un exil de 22 ans, accompagné de son fils. L'avènement de Pierre III et de Catherine II lui permit de retrouver ses titres et de retourner en Courlande en janvier 1763. Peter von Biron lui succède en tant que duc en 1769, titre qu'il doit finalement céder au tsar en 1795, la Courlande devenant province russe. En tête des titres figurent les ex-libris manuscrits de Catherine de Courlande : peut-être Jeanne-Catherine, troisième fille de Peter von Biron et épouse du duc Acerenza. gillesenlettonie.blogspot.fr Coupes et coiffes frottées, coins émoussés.

Mandeville "enjoyed widespread popularity in the fifteenth century and was respected by scholars and cartographers, Columbus among them, who consulted it as a reliable source on the Far East" (Howgego). From the library of Irish judge and discerning book collector William O'Brien (1832-99), which was endowed on his death to the Milltown Park Jesuit Library, Dublin.

Andrea Pozzo (1642 – 1709) was an Italian Jesuit, Baroque painter and architect, decorator, stage designer, and art theoretician. He was best known for his grandiose frescoes using illusionistic technique called quadratura, in which architecture and fancy are intermixed. His masterpiece is the nave ceiling of the Church of Sant'Ignazio in Rome. Through his techniques, he has become one of the most remarkable figures of the Baroque period. He is also noted for the architectural plans of the Ljubljana Cathedral (1700), inspired by the designs of the Jesuit churches Il Gesù and S. Ignazio in Rome. (Wikipedia).
