Madame la Maquise de Sevigne, her first name being Marie, is best known for her thorough documentation of life in the court of Louis XIV, and general aristocratic life in the seventeenth Century. She was a prolific letter writer, and her letters show a very interesting insight into that period in history. As Marie was widowed at a young age, and never re-married, she had an interesting life at court, as she was respected as a wife would be, but she wasn't hindered by living husband's demands. Most of Marie's letters were to her daughter, Francoise. Knowing that her letters were being copied and circulated, Marie carefully censored them to provide a little bit of privacy. Marie lived to see many interesting events, including the trial and execution of Madame de Brinvilliers. Brinvilliers was an aristocrat who was charged with three murders, who's trail begun the 'Affair of the Poisons' during which many prominent members of court were accused of poisoning and witchcr … [Click Below for Full Description]

[JAPAN] CRASSET, JEAN
Augsburg, Franz Antoni Alger, 1738. First Edition. Hardcover. Quarto (8-1/2" x 12-1/2") with two parts bound together in contemporary blind-stamped pigskin over wooden boards, clasps lacking but catches present, title on spine label stamped in blind; [24], 534, [2], 559, [1] pages. Title in red and black, engraved head- and tail-pieces and initials. Illustrated with 9 engraved plates. The First German Edition of this history of the Jesuit Mission in Japan. While Christianity in Japan flourished for a brief period in the mid 1500s, the religion was banned in 1620 and existed only underground. The Catholic church took some exception to Crasset's work, saying that he "attributed the origin of the persecution of 1597 to the imprudence of the friars in making their religious ceremonies too public" (Catholic Encyclopedia IV, 468). Nineteenth century signature to front fly leaf and early signature to title, some very light staining in various places throughout (mostly only visible in margins); expected soiling to binding. A clean and attractive Near Fine example .

Amsterdam: Jacques Desbordes, 1738. Edition originale (second tirage), in-8; Page de titre imprimée en rouge et noir, 399p. [1p. Errata]; bien complet du portrait de Voltaire et du frontispice de Dubourg, gravés par Folkema; fleuron de titre gravé par Duflos, vignettes en-têtes et culs-de-lampe par Folkema, Dubourg, La Cave, B. Picart, Konadet, Schley, 7 planches hors-texte dont un tableau dépliant, et très nombreuses vignettes et diagrammes dans le texte, gravés sur cuivre. Reliure d'époque en plein veau, dos à nerfs orné, gardes marbrées. Quelques usures et petites restaurations, minime accroc à la coiffe supérieure, quelques pâles rousseurs marginales, mais un bon exemplaire. Exilé en Angleterre de 1726 à 1729, Voltaire y rencontra Newton et s'intéressa à son œuvre. C'est lors d'un séjour en Hollande où il dut se réfugier en 1736 qu'il remit au libraire Ledet les premiers chapitres des "Eléments de la philosophie de Newton". Voltaire étant retourné en France, Ledet fit terminer l'ouvrage par un mathématicien hollandais et le publia sans autorisation en avril 1738. Voltaire mécontent rédigea des "Eclaircissements", tenta de faire imprimer son ouvrage en France, mais le chancelier d'Aguesseau ayant refusé le "privilège" à cause d'une première partie traitant de métaphysique, Voltaire fut contraint de publier son édition quelques mois plus tard sous l'adresse fictive de Londres. Second tirage de l'édition originale de ce livre important (le premier ayant été publié par Leidet), qui introduisit en France la physique newtonienne. Quérard X, 295-96.

Avantures du Sr. C. Le Beau, Avocat en Parlement, ou Voyage Curieux et Nouveau, Parmi les Sauvages de l'Amerique Septentrionale, dans lequel, On trouvera une Description du Canada, avec une Relation tres particuliere des ancienne Coutumes, Moeur & Facons de vivre des Barbares qui l'habitent & de la maniere dont ils se comportent aujourd'hui Author: Le Beau, C[laude] Published: Amsterdam; Herman Uytwerf, 1738 Binding: Hardcover Condition: Good (please see full item description for details) Description: Two volumes, pp. [xiv], 370, [6]; 430,[ 6], with six folding plates and a folding map. Modern full-leather with marbled endpapers. Title pages clipped at upper and lower edges; damage with losses to three plates, repairs to back of map; all else very good. Le Beau was transported from France to Quebec in 1729, probably on a charge of libertinism. According to his own account, he was appointed a clerk in the Beaver Office and then chief clerk in the King's warehouses. Bored and depressed, he stole gunpowder from the warehouses and set off for New England. A warrant for his arrest was issued, but he escaped, encountering many perils (natural and human) before he reached Boston and eventually sailed for Holland. His ensuing work on his adventures in North America includes much detail on Huron, Iroquois, and Algonquin customs, but its style has been dubbed fanciful. Howes (L-167) describes the work as "a basically veracious narrative from competent authorities, though somewhat romanticised." The Dictionary of Canadian Biography argues that Le Beau "deserves credit for painting an … [Click Below for Full Description]

Madame la Maquise de Sevigne, her first name being Marie, is best known for her thorough documentation of life in the court of Louis XIV, and general aristocratic life in the seventeenth Century. She was a prolific letter writer, and her letters show a very interesting insight into that period in history. As Marie was widowed at a young age, and never re-married, she had an interesting life at court, as she was respected as a wife would be, but she wasn't hindered by living husband's demands. Most of Marie's letters were to her daughter, Francoise. Knowing that her letters were being copied and circulated, Marie carefully censored them to provide a little bit of privacy. Marie lived to see many interesting events, including the trial and execution of Madame de Brinvilliers. Brinvilliers was an aristocrat who was charged with three murders, who's trail begun the 'Affair of the Poisons' during which many prominent members of court were accused of poisoning and witchcr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Smith and engraved by James Hulett, under the title Memoirs of the Royal Society, being a new abridgment of the Philosophical Transactions for the years 1665 to 1735.

There is some very mild spotting, which is mostly limited to the first and last couple of pages. There is the occasional handling mark. The back endpaper is chipped.
