Scoprimento del mondo umano di Lucio Agatone: SERAVALU, Angelo

Description du livre : Bonetti, Siena, 1696. Thick quarto, with an engraved frontispiece and full-page portrait of the author; intermittent water-staining, some gatherings a little stained, a few preliminary margins well renewed with old paper (no text loss), a few other small marginal defects but a good sound copy in recent vellum over boards. Rare and enigmatic imaginary voyage filled with metaphysical allusion, long overlooked by scholars and bibliographers of the genre.This mysterious book is the work of the Augustinian priest Angelo Seravalli (1630-1708), who served as abbot of San Jacopo Soprano in Florence, where he was born and died. Aside from a little poetry his literary output is restricted to the present text, where he narrates a journey by himself and a mystical figure known as Lucio Agatone Prisco. In a vast narrative blending the real and the imaginary, Seravalli leads Prisco through the lands, oceans, cities and kingdoms of the world, explaining their nature and formation through human virtues and vices. As a result of the journey, Prisco achieves a spiritual enlightenment of sorts and proposes a vision for future peace on earth.Seravalli's ambitious literary project had little impact on his contemporaries (although it is mentioned in a handful of late seventeenth-century letters, including a correspondence from Italian bibliophile Antonio Magliabechi to the philosopher Leibniz dated 3 April 1696). Howgego notes (in his study of apocryphal voyage narratives published by Hordern House in 2013) 'It has since been largely ignored by scholars in the field of imaginary voyages, and no further discussion was found in the literature. The book is rare, only nine library copies being recorded worldwide.' Nonetheless, it provides modern readers with an engaging baroque allegory that combines real people, cities and events with mythological characters and esoteric lore - and this at a period when the Inquisition was active.'Prisco', the main character of the narrative is derived from an late medieval epitaph inscribed on the 'Pietra di Bologna', a stone plaque famous with alchemists and students of the esoteric arts. A mystical riddle of compounded contradictions, the epitaph has defied interpretation for centuries. In more recent times the 'Pietra di Bologna' was treated in detail by Carl Jung in his study of alchemy and the unconscious. Howgego gives a translation as follows: 'Aelia Laelia Crispis, neither male nor female, nor androgynous nor child, neither young nor old, nor chaste, nor whore, but all this together. Killed not by hunger nor by iron nor by poison, but all these things together. Neither in heaven nor in water, nor in earth, but everywhere he lies. Lucius Agatho Priscius, neither husband nor lover, nor relative, neither sad nor happy, nor crying, not pyramid, nor tomb, but all this together, knows and knows not to whom it is dedicated'.The book includes an ornate engraved frontispiece and a portrait of the author, both by Nicolas Dorigny. Of special interest are the woodcut capitals decorated with scenes of esoteric significance. N° de réf. du libraire 4202826

Description du livre : [?Haarlem: 1689]., 1689. DE HOOGHE, Romeyn (1645 - 1708). L Epiphane du Nouveau Antichrist. [?Haarlem: 1689]. Broadside (22 x 16 inches), illustrated with a fine engraved plate (14 6/8 x 16 inches), above the headline "The Arrival of the Anti-Christ", and three columns of letterpress (edges close cropped affecting the last line of letterpress, a bit spotted, early repair on verso). A broadside satirising the birth of the Prince of Wales (James Edward Stuart, the future Old Pretender), the fall of James II and the beginning of the War of the Grand Alliance, with an etching by de Hooghe. In the centre three figures wearing armour and paper crowns, James II (1), Louis XIV (2) and the Grand Dauphin (a), enact the Three Kings in a traditional Dutch Epiphany procession holding aloft the "Star of the Kings" (b), here composed of a windmill, and an orb encircled by the mitres of the seven bishops who opposed James's declaration of indulgence. James wears a Jesuit's biretta under his paper crown, a holy water stoop, a rosary, a sword at his side and shackles on his ankles; he pulls on a rope attached to the Star to keep it in motion. On the right in a centre of group of figures, the Pope (3) holds a cardinal's hat (d) for Father Petre and swaddling clothes (e) for the young prince. On the left, Cardinal von Fürstenberg (4), shown as if on pilgrimage to Cologne, holding a cross with a banner reading "L'Elector Imaginaire", presumably a reference to the newly appointed Archbishop-Elector Joseph Clemens von Wittelsbach. Behind him is Father Petre (5) riding on a blind donkey and carrying a crucifix. In the left foreground, Mary of Modena kneels rocking a cradle (6) in which lies the Prince of Wales (c) playing with a toy windmill; the foot of the cradle is elaborately carved with a wheel of fortune to which cling naked children. On the right, the pope is restrained by William III (7), who carries a lance with the cap of liberty, and Leopold I (8); behind them is a group of soldiers with guns, lances, a trumpet and a flag labelled, "Inutrumque Turcam" and beyond a German inn with the sign of the roasted cock. In the distant background, to left, are ruined catholic churches and chapels (f), a row of gibbets and the sun setting on the papacy (9). Provenance: From the Krown & Spellman Collection, their sale, Heritage, 4th November, 2015 lot 45243 The first political iconographer of the Netherlands and its first great caricaturist.Romeyn de Hooghe was the most significant and prolific Netherlandish engraver in the second half of the seventeenth century (The Getty Institute) Romeyn de Hooghe was born in Amsterdam in 1645 "and worked there until c.1680-1682, when he moved to Haarlem, where he died in 1708. For several Netherlandish provinces, he created interior architectural paintings and other works. In 1662 De Hooghe was invited by Adam Frans van der Meulen (1632-1690) to Paris, where he etched the baptism of the Dauphin in 1668. There he met King Jan III Sobieski of Poland and was knighted by him in 1675. "De Hooghe painted, engraved, sculpted, designed medals, enameled, taught drawing school, and bought and sold art as a dealer. During the 1690s he made sculptures for the palace of Het Loo (1689-1692), designed and etched triumphal arches and medals for William III's entry into the Hague (1691), and designed the Haarlem market festival decorations for the peace celebration after the capture of Naumur (1695). His political, legal, and economic interests are evident in his writings: Schouburgh der Nederlandsche Veranderingen (1674), Æsopus in Europa (1701), Spiegel van Staat des Vereenigde Nederlanden (1706), and Hieroglyphica of Merkbeelden der oude Volkeren (1735), all of which he also illustrated. He was well-educated and may have attended law classes at a university in Harderwijk or Leiden. "De Hooghe's earliest print, after Nicolas Berchem, was made around 1662. He created about 3500 images, most after his own designs, some after other artists, for himself and o. N° de réf. du libraire 72edv152

Bibliothèque orientale, ou Dictionaire universel contenant généralement: Herbelot de Molainville,

First edition, folio, pp. [32], 1059, [1]; title page printed in red and black, woodcut ornaments and initials; full contemporary calf, gilt- decorated spine in 7 compartments, red morocco label in 1; edeges a little worn, a few minor tears and dampstains in the text, but in all, a very good, sound copy. Manuscript inscription at the top of the title page reads: "Monasterii S. Germani a pratis Congregationis S. Maun: 1698."Based on the immense Arabic bibliography (the Kashf al-Zunun) of Hadji Khalfa (Katip Çelebi), of which it is largely an abridged translation, but it also contains the substance of a vast number of other Arabic and Turkish compilations and manuscripts. Four editions of this encyclopedia on the culture and history of the Near East were printed, the last being 1781-83.Atabey Sale, 563: "Herbelot spent the last thirty years of his life working on his Bibliothèque orientale, a landmark in Arabic studies which was unfinished at his death and completed and published two years later by the orientalist Antoine Galland in 1697. He knew a range of languages, including Arabic, Turkish, Persian, Aramaic, Syriac, and Hebrew, and was familiar with their literature and history, of which this work forms an encyclopaedia." A supplement compiled by Claude de Visdelou wasn't published until 1780.James Ford Bell Catalogue, cites the 1781-83 edition only. N° de réf. du libraire 42959

Description du livre : Michel Brunet, 1698. Hardcover. État : Very Good. 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall. 12mo [15.9 x 8.9 cm], (6) ff., 424 (i.e. 432) pp., with an added folding plate [26.1 x 26.1 cm]. Bound in contemporary French mottled calf, covers triple gilt ruled, spine in six compartments, red morocco title label, marbled end papers and marbled edges, engraved ex-libris of Maurice Villaret on front-end paste down. Covers and corners somewhat rubbed. Some leaves toned, an occasional spot in margin, otherwise very good. Very rare second edition (first in 1697) of an enigmatic and ingenious literary satire devoted to the medical practice of Dr. Christophe Ozanne (1633-1713), an unlicensed rural physician from the French hamlet of Chaudray. The present volume contains a very rare, separately issued engraving depicting Ozanne consulting with patients in his modest rooms, providing a fascinating glimpse into the practice of empiric medicine in 17th-century France. Les Malades de Belle Humeur ou Lettres Divertissantes ecrites de Chaudray, the work of the dramaturge and theologian L’abbé Laurent de Bordelon (1653-1730), ranges wildly in genre and subject matter, containing elements of the epistolary novel, poetry, fictitious dialogue, art criticism, medicinal theory, and digests of classical literary works, and even prints genuine letters exchanged by two important female writers of 17th-centruy France, the famed female novelist Madeleine de Scudéry (1607-1701) and the poet Catherine Descartes (1637-1706), niece of the René. The publication of such bizarrerie during the Golden Age of French Baroque Literature – a period during which L’Académie française and the salons of Paris championed the classical ideals of rigidly self-contained and well-defined genres – is truly peculiar and offers a fascinating point of departure for further literary-historical research. Les Malades de Belle Humeur opens with a (real or imagined) description of the author’s convalescence in the care of Ozanne, including a discussion of the doctor’s home, his patients, and his remedies. The large, separately issued folding plate depicts (with no apparent humor) Dr. Ozanne in his chambers distributing ‘curative waters’ to a queue of eager patients. Such detailed depictions of medical practice are of interest in their own right and are fairly uncommon. As we have located the plate in no other copy of the work, and it is almost certainly the ad hoc addition of an early owner (see Notice sur Christophe Ozanne, pp. 44-5). Bordelon’s initial narrative is quickly is overtaken by the literary ephemera that makes this volume such a puzzle, not only for the heterogenous nature of its contents, but also the level of critical intelligence, which ranges from the banal to the sophisticated. We find poetry, a list of mirabilia, elementary plot summaries of Virgil and Homer, a well-informed critical appraisal of Italian vs. French music, dialogues between fictitious characters, etc. Yet the most significant of Bordelon’s digressions is not fictitious at all: the 20-page excerpt of actual correspondence between Madeleine de Scudéry and Catherine Descartes, which includes a poem by Scudéry that appears here in print for the first time. A monograph comparing the letters in the present volume to a verified manuscript of the correspondence confirms that they are genuine. The Paris chaplain Abbé de Bordelon (1653-1730), far from a fringe figure, enjoyed considerable celebrity during his lifetime, publishing dozens of works on a variety of topics, including astrology, drama, morality, philosophy, biography and mock biography, and witchcraft. His works, including a twelve-volume collected works, were frequently reprinted in France and the Netherlands, and were also translated into English, German, Italian, and Spanish. OCLC locates U.S. copies of this 1698 edition at Newberry and San Francisco; Penn and the Library of Congress house copies of the 1697 edition. The added engraving found in the present volume is untraced in public institutions. N° de réf. du libraire 4680

Description du livre : Jobus Hertz for Johann Andrea Endter & Heirs of Wolfgang Junior, Nuremberg:, 1665. hardcover. 1 FIRST EDITION OF THIS EARLY WORK ON CRYPTOGRAPHY AND CIPHERS, AND MORE SPECIFICALLY SECRET WRITING. Noel Malcolm points out that political and religious authorities want to conceal the knowledge of esoteric or secret doctrines in order to control power and stressing the importance of keeping secret one’s counsel. –See: "Private and Public Knowledge," by Noel Malcolm, in Findlen [below], p.305. Schott (1608-1666) Jesuit, student and assistant of Athanasius Kircher, during the last years of his life he decided to publish the mass of material he had collected on scientific subjects both from his own researches and those of others. He produced in a period of eight years (1658-1666) eleven books. He taught mathematics and physics at Mainz and Würzberg. He ".yearned for the intellectual delights of Rome, and after twenty-five years in Italy he suffered from German winters and had to have his own hypocaust installed.Exhausted, it is said, by overwork on his books, he died in 1666." - DSB XII, p.211. "Steganography falls into two branches, linguistic steganography and technical steganography. Only the first is closely related to cryptography. The technical aspect can be covered very quickly: invisible inks have been in use since Pliny’s time. Onion juice and milk have proved popular and effective through the ages (turning brown under heat or ultraviolet light)." – Friedrich L. Bauer, Decrypted Secrets: Methods and Maxims of Cryptology, p.8. PROVENANCE: Hedwig & Eberhard Frey. Eberhard Frey (1872-1963) was a German writer and art critic and a collector (and writer about) of bookplates. See: Richard Braungart, Deutsche Exlibris und Andrere Kleingraphik der Gegenwart.

Description du livre : Joannes Toll,, Harderwyk, 1656. Oblong 4to. Contemp. mottled calf, spine ribbed and gilt, red and blue mottled edges. With woodcut of King David playing his harp on title, fine engraved frontispiece with open music book under the title in centre, and King David playing his harp and Horace playing his lyre on a pedestal at either side, with a white swan above and publisher's address below. (4), 184, (2) pp. Very rare Dutch songbook and an important contribution to Dutch poetic art, with all songs strictly based on classical metrics, and without rhyme. In his dedication to the States of Gelre and Zutphen the author presents his work as the new and perfect form for all Dutch poetry, and a model for future poets. In the preface, which in fact gives an extensive comparative study of prosody, the poet's method is explained to the reader, and most of the poems are accompanied by metrical signs. Conrad Goddaeus was Minister of the Church at Vaassen from 1634 to his death in 1658. He was a valued friend of Pieter Cornelisz. Hooft, and in the present songbook Goddaeus also transposed Hooft's Granida into the "correct metre", under the title "Rei van Jofferen".

Jahrhunderts. Der von Boehme und anderen Mystikern beeinflusste aber ungeachtet enger kontakte zu Pordage und seinem Kreis nicht den Boehmisten zugehörige Poiret gab u.a. zahlreiche Werke der Madame Guyon heraus und schloss sich schon früh der Schwärmerin Antoinette Bourignon an, die sogar aus den liberalen Niederlanden fliehen musste. "Durch das Erscheinen seines großen Werkes "Der göttliche Haushalt" 1687 wird er weiteren Kreisen als mystischer Schriftsteller bekannt und zieht sich weitere Angriffe zu ., da er hierin die Lehren der Borignon systematisch zu gestalten sucht und zwar mit Hilfe Descartes` Begriffswelt, Boehems Spekulationen und der Fülle mystischer Anregungen, die er sonst empfangen hat. . Er bestätigt die . kompilatorische Art seiner Tätigkeit dadurch, dass darin alle Arten von Mystik, naturphilosophische, theosophische, chiliastische, eschatologische, ja schon Elemente der romanischen Mystik und des Cartesianismus ihre Orgien feiern. Wer wollte in diesem schweren philosophisch-theologischen Gewande bei aller psychologischen und scholastischen Spitzfindigkeit nicht bereits voll und ganz den Geist der Aufklärung spüren ."

Description du livre : Paris: Chez Antoine Dezallier, 1696., 1696. One Hundred and Two Magnificent Portraits of Famous Men of the Seventeenth CenturyPERRAULT, Charles. Les Hommes Illustres qui ont paru en France pendant ce Siecle: Avec leurs Portraits au naturel. Par Mr Perrault, de l'Academie Françoise. Paris: Chez Antoine Dezallier, 1696-1700. First edition. Two folio volumes (16 15/16 x 11 1/8 inches; 431 x 283 mm.). [viii], 100, [2], [2], [2, list of plates]; [iv], 102, [1], [1, blank] pp. Allegorical title engraved by Edelinck after Bonet, engraved portrait engraved by Edelinck after Tortebat (facing preface) of Charles Perrault and 102 fine portraits engraved by Lubin, Edelinck, Duflos, van Schuppen and Nanteuil, of the illustrious men of France, including the two 'suppressed' plates of Antoine Arnauld, Docteur de Sorbonne and Blaise Pascal which are bound in with their respective leaves of text at the end of the text in volume one.Contemporary mottled calf, spines with six raised bands, decoratively stamped in gilt in compartments, red morocco labels lettered in gilt. top and bottom of spines expertly and almost invisibly repaired. A fine and large copy of the first printing with early impressions of the plates and wide margins. The censor had suppressed two of the portraits, Antoine Arnauld and Blaise Pascal replacing them with those of Louis Thomassin, Prestre de l'Oratoire and Charles Du Fresne, Sieur Du Cange. These two censored portraits and the corresponding text sheets have been bound in at the end of the first volume, as in the example cited by Brunet. "Comme le siecle où nous vivons, riche des biens de tous les siecles precedens qu'il a recueillis par droit de succession, & riche encore de son propre fonds, a vû toutes les Sciences & tous les Arts s'élever en quelque sorte à leur derniere perfection; il n'est pas étonnant qu'il ait esté si fecond en grands Hommes" (Préface). An English translation by J. Ozell, was published in 1704, and a Dutch edition in French in 1736, but neither of these editions reproduced the engravings that had originally accompanied the text in the first edition. There has never been a second edition. The only other version that is currently available is by Slatkine (1970), a photo-facsimile reproduction of the first edition. Perrault's work consists of one hundred and two pen-portraits of famous men of the seventeenth century, each accompanied by an engraving. No women are included, though this cannot be attributed to misogyny in the case of Perrault who was much maligned for his own Apologie des femmes (1694). No individual portrait is longer than two pages. For inclusion, the individuals had to be dead (hence Boileau, who died in 1711, could not have been included and, in any case, since he was an arch Ancient and a long-standing literary enemy, Perrault might have chosen to exclude him). Charles Perrault (1628-1703) was a French author and member of the Académie Française. He laid the foundations for a new literary genre, the fairy tale, with his works derived from pre-existing folk tales. The best known of his tales include Le Petit Chaperon Rouge (Little Red Riding Hood), Cendrillon (Cinderella), Le Chat Botté (Puss in Boots), La Belle au bois Dormant (The Sleeping Beauty), and Barbe Bleue (Bluebeard). Some of Perrault's versions of old stories may have influenced the German versions published by the Brothers Grimm more than 100 years later. The stories continue to be printed and have been adapted to opera, ballet (such as Tchaikovsky's The Sleeping Beauty), theatre, and film. Perrault was an influential figure in the 17th-century French literary scene, and was the leader of the Modern faction during the Quarrel of the Ancients and the Moderns.Brunet (IV, 509).

Description du livre : chez Rolet Boutonne, au palais, a l'entree de la petite Galerie des prisonniers, Paris, 1628. Softcover. État : Very good. Folio. Three vols in one pp. 1) pp. [xii], 197, [iii]. 2) pp. [iv], 95, [i]. 3) pp. [viii], 70, [ii]. Roman letter. First two titles in red and black, large engraved printer’s device on each, of two angels supporting the arms of Louis XIII, signed Picart on first, vol 1 with very numerous woodcut and engraved arms, vol two with woodcut arms and genealogical tables, small woodcut diagrams in text of third, all with fine floriated initials and head and tail-pieces. Light age yellowing, some leaves slightly browned, minor, light, marginal water-stains in places. Very good, clean, well margined copies, in contemporary limp vellum, slightly soiled, nibbled at edges in places, small stab hole in upper cover, upper edge a bit chewed. An excellent collection of three of the most important French works on heraldry, covering, between them all aspects of that art or science, all corrected and augmented and beautifully illustrated and printed. The first work by Bara concerns the history and tradition of heraldry starting with a general description of the forms in heraldry, with descriptions of the colours and form of arms and the use, meaning and history of the various symbols. The second part includes descriptions of the arms of a whole host of historical and mythical individuals, including Prester John, Alexander the Great, Hercules, and the arms of the Knights of the Round table, who were a significant element in medieval heraldry. (The identification of individuals from the Arthurian legends with particular arms is evidenced from as early as the 12th century, by the 15th century some 200 such arms had been attributed.) He also includes the arms of figures from the Old Testament, Greek and Roman mythology. The work ends with descriptions of the arms of the major houses of Europe and the high nobility of France. Scohier’s work, regarded as one of the best French heraldic treatises, also starts with a general description of the form of arms. It then elaborates a method of compiling genealogies and describes how arms are passed from generation to generation, with significant sections on the rights and laws of the wearing of arms. The final work by Moreau is prefaced by an interesting letter addressed to "La Noblesse Francoise" describing the importance of arms and their heritage to the nobility and royalty. In it describes succinctly the purpose of this work, "de rechercher les raisons des Armoiries tant principals, & substantielles, que parergues, & accessoires, comme de leurs Tymbres, Ordres, & Suports, & puis rebroussant iusqu’a leur premiere origine, tascher de desfricher, & descouvrir l’antiquite des plus grandes, & illustres.". As stated he researches the first origins of the use of arms and discusses in length the meaning of each major aspect of the design of arms and their first use, their original significance and modern interpretation. It is probable that the three works were put together by the publisher or a contemporary bookseller as they are complementary in design and use and represent the periods best works on heraldry. Brunet states that they are sometimes found together in this form. (Brunet, Bara I 642). 1) BM STC Fr. C17th B192. Brunet, I 642. Graesse I 287. 2) BM STC Fr. C17th S 475. Brunet V 234.

Description du livre : De l'Impression de Jacob Canin chez Guillaume Guillemot, Dordrecht, 1601. Hardcover. État : Very good. " FIRST EDITION. Folio, 3 parts in 2 vols., pp. (xxii) 650 (ii) ; 240 (xviii), (xvi) 780 (misnumbered 779) (xvi). Roman letter, Italic side notes, text in double column. Woodcut floriated and grotesque initials, both titles within splendid engraved architectural border with the instruments of learning above, of the arts, sciences and war at sides, and scenes depicting mercantile and maritime activity beneath, full-page portrait of the author and 57 three-quarter page engravings of emperors, governors and other important figures, including Elizabeth I and Robert Dudley, by Christoph von Sichem. Contemp autograph of 'Simeon Mahon, Chartain' (Chartres) and autograph of 'Challine Boilleau' on title-page, Nicolas-Joseph Foucault's engraved armorial bookplate on pastedowns, C19 armorial bookplate of the Earl of Macclesfield on fly, Shirburn Castle blindstamp to head of first three ll. of both vols. Closed tear (original paper flaw) in plate on A1 vol 2, I1 verso and I8 recto printed upside down, R2 inserted in the wrong place, paper flaw in Mm3 vol 2, light age yellowing, a few sheets browned, printers ink thumbing in a few margins. A very good copy, with generally very good impression of the plates, in contemporary calf, covers bordered with a single gilt filet, gilt laurel oval at centers, spines with raised bands blind ruled with gilt fleurons at centers, title gilt lettered in compartment, all edges of vol 1 yellow, those of vol 2 blue, head and tail of spines a little chipped, covers a little scratched. First edition of this highly important and beautifully illustrated history of the Dutch Republic, printed privately for the author. The commendatory verses include one in Dutch by Nicholas Doublet. Although the author covers the whole of the country's history up to 1600, about two thirds of the text is devoted to the C16th., making it one of the most detailed sources for the struggle for Dutch independence. Le Petit lists some 160 authors whose works he employed in his compilation, but much of its value lies in his use of mss. and original documents, and thus in his account of events otherwise unrecorded in printed histories. Le Petit's own history reflects the unsettled nature of the times he wrote on: although born in 1546 at Béthune into a noble Belgian family, he later abjured Catholicism and fled to Holland where he served William Ist, Prince of Orange. By 1598 he was living in Aix-la-Chapelle where he wrote his "Grande Chronicle" and dedicated it to the Estates-General of the United Provinces. An account of the reputed Swiss engravers, Christoph von Sichem Sr. and Jr., is given in Nagler II pp. 309-11. The portraits are generally finely engraved and are often expressive and vital, especially the superb full page portrait of the author after the title. About 16 pages in vol. I describe the geography of the New World, the supposed origins of its native inhabitants, the voyages of discovery, the conquest of the Indians, the climate, agriculture and resources of the Americas, their colonization, government and the missions, and the shameful treatment of the Indians by the Spaniards. Further pages deal with the expeditions of the Dutch to the East Indies and their commerce and colonization there. In vol. II Drake's exploits against the Spaniards in the New World are recorded. "Cette chronique, écrite en mauvais français, est fort curieuse pour les nombreux faits qu'elle relate, et que l'auteur a puisés aux sources originales . Il dit dans son épitre dédicatoire qu'il a décrit les choses après les avoir vues sur les lieux, et promet d'être beaucoup plus exact que Guichardin qu'il contredit souvent" (Nouv. Biog. Gén.). "En revanche la valeur historique du 2e vol., qui embrasse la période de 1556-1600, est incontestable; il contient, à coté d'extraits de plusieurs auteurs antérieurs, beaucoup de détails et de particularités qu'on chercherait vainement ailleurs." Biblioteca Belgica. A very good, totally unsophisticated copy, from t. N° de réf. du libraire L861

Description du livre : Paris, Pierre Des-Hayes, 1648., 1648. 1 vol. in-8°, veau blond glacé, dos lisse orné de triples filets, de roulettes, de pièces d'armes, et de petits fers dorés, encadrement d'un triple filet doré sur les plats, armes dorées au centre, filet doré sur les coupes, roulette dorée intérieure, tranches jaspées de brun. Reliure du XVIIIe s., mors sup. fendillé, coiffe sup. absente. Agréable exemplaire. Frontispice h.-t. gravé en taille-douce, premier feuillet de dédicace orné des armoiries du dédicataire gravées en taille-douce, 156 planches gravées en taille-douce sur 80 ff. h.-t. et 1 f. repl., (8) ff., 168 pp., (4) ff., pp. 169 à 176, puis pp. chiffrées 193 à 312, (4) ff., pp. 321 à 342, (1) f. (avec la démonstration de la 156ème planche gravée en taille-douce au v°). Les planches 151 et 156 sont présentes deux fois. Quelques rares rousseurs, petit manque de papier en tête du dernier feuillet des pièces liminaires avec perte de qq. caractères, petite perforation à une planche. Sans le portrait de Michel Larcher, le dédicataire. Edition originale de ce traité fondamental dans l'histoire des mathématiques et de la perspective en particulier, très largement inspiré des théories de Desargues (1591-1661), le fondateur de la géométrie projective dont Bosse était l'ami et le disciple depuis plusieurs années. Dans ce livre, l'objectif d'Abraham Bosse est essentiellement pédagogique : il s'adresse surtout aux praticiens qu'ils soient ou non versés dans la géométrie : d'où une progression méthodique tout au long de l'ouvrage vers des solutions de plus en plus complexes présentées chaque fois suivant plusieurs méthodes impliquant plus ou moins de théorie. Il y établit l'identité des deux méthodes principales (géométrale et perspective). L'ouvrage est divisé en trois parties : la première traite de "la règle de la pratique de la perspective pour le trait des figures, d'assiette, d'élévation, de profil et d'ombre ou d'ombrage". La deuxième aborde "la règle de la pratique de la perspective pour les places et proportions des fortes et foibles touches, teintes et couleurs". Enfin la troisième, probablement rédigée par Desargues lui-même ou sous sa dictée, recueille plusieurs compléments théoriques et pratiques et la reproduction du traité de perspective de Desargues publié en 1636. L'ouvrage est illustré de très belles planches, d'une grande finesse de trait et d'un grand raffinement esthétique, toutes gravées et dessinées par Abraham Bosse. Exemplaire de dédicace, aux armes de Michel Larcher marquis d'Ary (1714-1772) descendant du dédicataire de l'ouvrage en 1648, Michel Larcher, conseiller du roi et président de la chambre des comptes de Paris dont les armes sont gravées en tête de la dédicace.

Description du livre : Printed for the author ; and are to be sold by H. Robinson, A. Cr. L. Fawn, London, 1656. Hardcover. État : Very Good. 7 x 4.5 inches. 18 x 11.5 cm. A bi-lingual edition. Hebrew with English transliteration. The Hebrew is vocalized (has the point or vowels). Robertson, William. pp. [viii], 250, 22, [ii]. Trace foxed, slight loss in corner of last page, not affecting text. Modern full calf, gilt extra. 8vo. The author, a graduate of the University of Edinburgh, was the leading Hebrew tutor in Cromwellian London, when learning Hebrew was all the rage. In spite of the grammatical error in the title, the book matches the Hebrew text of Psalms and Lamentations with an accurate Romanization, according to standard Sephardic pronunciation. Of special interest here is the author's six-page Epistle Dedicatory to his patron, John Sadler, constitutional lawyer, Member of Parliament, and Oliver Cromwell's private secretary and confidante. Sadler, John Harvard's brother-in-law, was one of the leading ideologues of the philo-Semitic Israelite-identifying party among the English Puritans. Robertson's career faded away after the restoration of the monarchy in 1660, but finally, in 1680 he was appointed as a Hebrew instructor at Cambridge. SCANS available upon request.

Description du livre : Paris, Nicolas Langlois 1691., 1691. A bibliographically significant copy of an early issue of the first edition of the well-known Cours d?Architecture by the French architect Augustin Charles d?Aviler (1653-1700). D?Aviler had been one of the first students of the Acadèmie Royale d?Architecture sent to study in Rome (which he only reached after two years in prison in Tunis, his ship being captured by pirates on his journey out), and he had subsequently worked in the office of the royal architect Jules Hardouin-Mansart before entering independent architectural practice. In the 1680s he had begun a commentary on Vignola, and had produced a French-language edition of Book VI of Scamozzi, and his primary intention in the compilation of what was to become the Cours d?Architecture was to provide French readers with an intelligible explanation of Vignola?s teachings on the orders of architecture, accompanied by illustrations of some of the most notable of the buildings designed by Vignola and by Michelangelo. To these he added a specimen design for a large town house of his own invention, and an interesting illustrated discussion of the various architectural components of the interior of a typical town house of the period. He also decided to append a dictionary of the terms used in architecture and in the building trade, which forms the second volume of the Cours as published. The result was to provide a comprehensive architectural textbook that was valued both by architects and by educated readers, and was to be reissued in numerous editions between the 1690s and the 1760s.It has however been observed, most recently by the compilers of the British Architectural Library?s Catalogue of Early Printed Books, that changes were made in the make-up of the book?s first edition at a late stage in the printing process, and the evidence of the present copy, taken together with that of an incomplete copy of an early issue of the first volume which is also in our possession, reveals that the general Cours d?Architecture title leaf must have been printed as an afterthought, and that the original plan had been to divide what was ultimately the first volume into two parts with separate title leaves, the break coming after p.244. The original intended printed title leaf for the first part, which survives in our incomplete copy of vol.1, and was also present in the now lost Berlin copy (Berlin Cat 2388), reads thus: ?L?Architecture de Vignole, qui comprend ses ordres, avec des commentaires, les figures & descriptions de ses plus beaux bâtimens, & de ceux de Michel-Ange, plusieurs nouveaux desseins, ornemens & préceptes concernant l?art de bâtir ; et une explication de tous ces termes. Par le Sieur A.C.Daviler architecte. Premiere partie? No scholar seems however to have discovered until now a surviving copy of the original intended printed title leaf for the second part, and it is a fortunate chance that the binder of the copy that we catalogue here, not having the general Cours d?Architecture title leaf available to him (presumably because it had not yet been printed), used the intended title leaf for the second part as a title leaf for the first volume as a whole. It reads thus : ?Second partie du Cours d?Architecture qui contient les figures et descriptions des plus beaux bâtimens de Vignole et de Michel-Ange, plusieurs nouveaux desseins, ornemens, & préceptes concernant la distribution, la matiere & la construction des edifices . & tout ce qui regarde l?art de bâtir ; avec une ample explication de tous les termes par ordre alphabetique? As both of these intended title leaves carry Langlois?s imprint and the publication date 1691 at their foot, it is clear that at the time that they were printed it was these title leaves that were intended to be the title leaves of the published book. One must conclude that the general Cours d?Architecture title leaf was only produced after a decision had been taken that the ?Explication des Termes d?Architecture? would be too lengthy to be bound up.

Description du livre : Chez Martin Nutius, Anvers, 1634. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. 200 x 165 mm. (7 7/8 x 6 1/8"). 300, [4] pp. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. Attractive 19th-century blue morocco by W. Pratt, triple gilt fillets on covers, spine gilt in compartments with cruciform centerpiece and curling vine cornerpieces, very pretty gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt. WITH 40 SUMPTUOUS ENGRAVINGS, including an engraved title page, 38 portraits of important religious figures and saints, and a final plate depicting these personnages worshipping God in Heaven. Funck, p. 212, fig. 80 & p. 215; Brunet I, 946. See also: Bryan II, p. 210-11. Joints and corners slightly rubbed, one-inch repair to the margin of leaf N1, faint offsetting from plates (slightly heavier in a handful of cases), occasional minor marginal stains, otherwise A VERY PLEASING COPY, WITH ESPECIALLY STRONG, CLEAN IMPRESSIONS OF THE ENGRAVINGS. Offered here in an especially well-preserved copy, this work is of primary interest for its beautiful engravings done after paintings that once made the Benedictine Abbey of Liessies famous--paintings which, tragically, were either sold, given away, or destroyed during the French Revolution. All but two of the engravings seen here are portraits of important religious personages, including the obvious central figures (Christ, the Virgin, John the Baptist, the Church Fathers, etc.) as well as more recently cannonized saints such as Theresa of Avila. The prolific Étienne Binet (1569-1639), a Jesuit priest from Dijon, has supplied a short biography for each figure, as well as a list of central maxims associated with them, in order to encourage contemplation by the reader. The radiant plates promote this same spirit of meditation and communicate the distinct personalities of their subjects, thanks to the remarkable talents of the designer who studied the original paintings, Theodor Galle (1571-1633), and the engraver who brought them to life, Cornelis Galle (1576-1656). These two artists were brothers, born into a famous Belgian family of engravers. They learned the craft from their father, Phillip, and later in Italy, where they studied the Masters and perfected their art. Back in Antwerp, Cornelis and Theodor both became prominent members of society and found success and prosperity in their careers: Theodor was master of his guild in Antwerp, where, according to Bryan, "he held a commanding position" and for 33 years supplied engravings for the Plantin press (his descendants continued this relationship until 1694). Cornelis was greatly successful in his work as a printseller, collector, and engraver. Their work, particularly that of Cornelis, is considered to be among the best of the period, and this dynamic collaboration between the two siblings seems to bring out the best qualities of each artist: the plates in the present volume are cleverly designed, full of animated activity and detail, and characterized by a high level of precision, even in the rendering of the smallest figures. Offered here in an especially well-preserved copy, this work is of primary interest for its beautiful engravings done after paintings that once made the Benedictine Abbey of Liessies famous--paintings which, tragically, were either sold, given away, or destroyed during the French Revolution. All but two of the engravings seen here are portraits of important religious personages, including the obvious central figures (Christ, the Virgin, John the Baptist, the Church Fathers, etc.) as well as more recently cannonized saints such as Theresa of Avila.
