Dans la Princiere Abbaie par Jean Everhard Kalin, Einsidlen 1749 - 12mo. 2 volumes bound in 1. Volume I. pp. [24], 431, [1]. Volume II. pp. [14], 234, [4].

Armorial bookplate on inside front cover – "E libris Roberti Comitis de Crewe." Augustin Calmet (1672-1757) was a Biblical scholar and a Benedictine Abbot at Nancy and Sens. Calmet’s most famous work, his treatise on apparitions and vampires, was first published in French (1746). The first part discusses several types of apparitions, demonical and otherwise. The second part gathers together and analyzes the various accounts of vampires or the walking dead which were coming out of Eastern Europe during the 1720’s and 30’s. Calmet’s book quickly became popular and it helped cement the notion of a vampire in the Western European consciousness. [Coumont C7.2; Caillet 1965]. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

POLIGNAC, Melchior, cardinal de;
Paris, Desaint et Saillant, 1749 2 tomes en un volume de LXXXV, 232, (3)pp.- (2) ff., 338pp., maroquin rouge, triple filet doré d'encadrement sur les plats, fleurons aux angles, dos lisse orné d'un décor doré à la grotesque, coupes et bordures décorées, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque). Édition originale de la traduction de Bougainville du fameux poème philosophique du cardinal de Polignac, écrit en vers latins. Elle est ornée d'un portrait-frontispice gravé par J. Doullé d'après Hyacinthe Rigaud, ainsi que de 10 vignettes d'en-tête et 5 culs-de-lampe gravés par Delafosse et Tardieu d'après Eisen. L'Anti-Lucrèce est l'aboutissement d'un travail qui a occupé Polignac durant toute sa vie. Avant de disparaître, l'auteur en confia le manuscrit aux soins de son ami Rotholin. Le livre paraîtra six ans après, en latin. Cette somme de dix mille vers épingle à travers le système d'Epicure, maître de Lucrèce, l'athéisme contemporain. En ardent défenseur de Descartes, il fait sienne la preuve de l'existence de Dieu et de l'immortalité de l'âme. Le cardinal Melchior de Polignac (1661-1741) fut aussi un diplomate de grand renom. Louis XIV lui attribua notamment la charge d'ambassadeur extraordinaire en Pologne puis celle de plénipotentiaire à Utrecht, en 1712, où il prouva ses talents de négociateur. Chargé d'affaires à Rome, il s'adonna à l'archéologie et découvrit près de Frascati les vestiges de la maison de campagne de Marius. En 1704, il fut reçu à l'Académie française, au fauteuil de Bossuet. Superbe exemplaire sur grand papier de Hollande en maroquin décoré de l'époque. … [Click Below for Full Description]
