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 : Presso Gio. Battista Ferroni, Bologna, 1664. Hardcover. FIRST EDITION. Small 4to. Collation: *4 A-X4 Y6 [Z]2, COMPLETE. [8], 172, [12] pp. With 4 folding copper-engraved plates and numerous woodcut diagrams illustrating the text. Well bound in sturdy 20th-century Italian quarter vellum over mottled boards, smooth spine lettered in black. Outer margins of title and two subsequent leaves reinforced. One leaf with a small loss of text and some rubbing. Some very light occasional dampstaining. Closely cropped in several instances with slight loss to Fig. 12 and 16 at end. An important work which describes the construction and use of the sector, or proportional compass, variously described by Galileo as his "geometrical and military compass." It is justly considered to be the first truly "modern" calculating instrument which offered an extraordinary range of applications and remained in constant use for over two hundred years. The device was immediately embraced by practioners of a number of disciplines, most notably architects (some of whom may have struggled to perform even elementary arithmetical operations). It is a remarkable fact that the disciplines to which the sector was applied, particularly architecture, fortification, and surveying (traditionally classed as mechanical sciences), soon emerged as mathematical sciences in the seventeenth century. Indeed there is evidence that the universality of these practical applications helped to make possible the universality of science at a theoretical level. Hence this technology was not simply a consequence of advances in science. Rather, the technology helped make possible the mathematical sciences that led to modern science. The sector was originally invented by Galileo for calculations in surveying, geometry, gunnary, dialling, gauging, engineering, mathematical operations, and even accounting. It is no exaggeration the invention of the sector heralded the scientific revolution of the Baroque era. Throughout the 17th century, and well into the 18th, the sector underwent considerable improvement. To aid the architect, Ottavio Revesi Bruti developed a particular type of proportional compass, the "archisesto," which had proportional lines for drawing the architectural orders (see his "Archisesto per formar con facilità li cinque ordini d’architettura," Vicenza, 1627). During the 19th century the proportional compass was gradually replaced by highly refined slide rules which survived over the years in the technical studios of engineers and architects up until the recent advent of the computer. At the time of Casati's publication of the "Fabrica et uso del compasso di proportione," Galileo's own instructional manual had become almost unfindable, in Italy or elsewhere (as is attested in Casati's preface), while demand for information about the sector increased exponentially. Casati was Jesuit polymath who published erudite works on optics, physics, and mathematics. In the present well-illustrated volume he presents, through a series of practical demonstrations, as much information as was then known about the sector and its applications in multiple fields of inquiry. Very curious contemporary inscription on title page: "Da mihi in disco caput Giovannis Battiste" (Matt. 14:8 -- Bring me the head of St. John the Baptist on a plate). Cinti 156. Ricccardi I, 271 ("Raro"). Sommervogel VI, 78. Very good antiquarian condition. N° de réf. du libraire 1044

First published in 1586, Porta’s famous treatise was one of the earliest major texts specifically devoted to physiognomy, the art of determining character or personal characteristics from the form or features of the body. The numerous woodcut text illustrations draw comparisons between the physical features of men and animals in an attempt to relate their nature. These comparisons still persist in our vocabulary in adjectives such as bovine, ovine, lupine, aquiline, assinine, porcine, &c. Bound herewith, as issued, are Italian editions of Giovanni Ingegeri’s treatise on physiognomy, another work on the same subject by Polemon or Polemo, a Greek writer who is supposed to have lived between 100 and 250 A.D., and Porta’s work on celestial physiognomy, in which he proposes to refute astrology and prove instead that what the astrologers state as the effects of the planets, signs, and constellations are rather to be attributed to the qualities, features, and other peculiarities of the human body.

Description du livre : Chez Guillaume le Bé, Paris, 1676. Couverture rigide. État : Satisfaisant. in-8. in-8, oblong, 40pl. numérotées 1 à 40 (dont titre) avec feuillet explicatif correspondant, broché (couv. d'attente), L'édition de ce remarquable ouvrage contenant 36 splendides gravures sur bois, est la fameuse édition de Le Bé, qui a utilisé les bois d'origine de l'édition de J. Le Clerc, en 1595 (sous ce titre : le livre de pourtraicture). Cet ouvrage sur les proportions du corps humain et sur les moyens géométriques de dessiner a été réalisé par Jean Cousin (le fils), qui a vraisemblablement réemployé une partie du matériel laissé par son père, Jehan Cousin (ca. 1522-1594), peintre (comparé à Dürer par ses contemporains) et géomètre. Son traité de perspective paru en 1560 n’a pas été réédité depuis, sinon dans un fac-similé. Dans un avertissement, Jehan Cousin au lecteur, l’auteur annonce un deuxième volume consacré aux « figures de touts corps, mesmes des personnages, arbres, & paysages, pour entendre & cognoistre en quelle situation, forme & grandeur ilz doivent estre representez selon cest art » [de perspective], mais il meurt sans l’avoir publié, il annonce également la publication prochaine du livre de son fils.

Description du livre : In Roma:, 1691. hardcover. 1 FIRST EDITION of this distinguished study of the ancient sepulchral lamps discovered in the tombs and caves of Rome. These lamps are shown in intricately-engraved plates; the plates were designed and engraved by Bartoli, with explanatory notes by Gio Pietro Bellori. Subsequent editions were published in Berlin in 1702 and Rome in 1704, but this first edition contains 12 plates not found in the later editions. Bellori was a prominent biographer of the Italian Baroque artists of the seventeenth century. As an art historian, he was the Baroque equivalent of Giorgio Vasari. "Giovanni Pietro Bellori (1613-1696), an eminent Italian archaeologist, was born at Rome in 1613. From his youth Bellori devoted himself to the study of art and antiquity, in which he was encouraged, and at the outset greatly assisted, by his uncle, Francesco Angeloni, secretary to Cardinal Aldobrandini, himself a good antiquary, and author of an account of the coins of the Roman Emperors, and of the Historia di Terni. Bellori wrote many works of great use in their day and which are still often referred to with advantage. Several of Bellori’s works were posthumous; among them may be noticed- Le Antiche Lucerne Sepolcrali." [The English Cylopaedia, p. 206].

Description du livre : Robert Ballard, Paris, 1662. First Edition. Malkin 9.1. Magriel p. 139. Slin p. 296. Not in Derra de Moroda.L'Hercule Amoreux, a ballet with music by Lully, marked the occasion of the marriage of Louis XIV to Maria Theresa of Spain; it was first performed in Paris at the Tuileries on February 7, 1662."This opera-ballet. was doubtless the most brilliant of all the festivities organized in honor of the king's marriage. The performance, before an immense crowd which filled the new theatre to capacity, lasted for six hours. But the magnificence of the new theatre, the extraordinary boldness of the machines and decorations, the numerous and sudden changes of scenes, and the sumptuousness of the costumes kept the audience in a constant state of excitement. They paid very little attention to the opera itself, but the ballet entries, particularly the one in which the king and queen danced together, surrounded by the most illustrious representatives of the nobility, threw them into ecstasy. The complete spectacle is a very happy fusion of two genres producing what we may call a 'court-opera- ballet' in which the subjects of the ballet entries are closely related to the subject of the opera. The work is the result of the collaboration of at least six people: Camille Lillius wrote the Prologue, Buti wrote the libretto, Cavalli composed the music of the opera, Benserade devised the ballet entries and wrote the Vers, Lully composed the music of the ballet entries, and Gaspare Vigarani invented the machines." Silin: Benserade and his Ballets de Cour, p. 301.Ercole amante ("Hercules in Love"), an opera in a prologue and five acts by Francesco Cavalli to a libretto by Francesco Buti after Ovid’s Metamorphoses, was commissioned by Cardinal Mazarin to mark the occasion of the wedding of Louis XIV to Maria Theresa of Spain. Cavalli (1602-1676) "was the most performed, and perhaps the most representative, composer of opera in the quarter-century after Monteverdi and was a leading figure, as both composer and performer, in Venetian musical life." Thomas Walker in Grove onlineA French poet, librettist and playwright, "[Benserade's] art of telling the truth about society people with elegance and dexterity was not only appreciated by the salons and developed in all the current poetic genres – epigrams, madrigals, rondeaux, enigmas, portraits and epitaphs – but was peculiarly suited to the court ballet. Benserade's popularity coincided with Louis XIV's career as a dancer of some talent, and between 1651 and 1669, when the king retired from the stage, Benserade wrote verses for 23 royal ballets." Margaret M. McGowan in Grove online Small quarto. Full polished mid-tan calf with decorative spine in compartments gilt, dark red leather title label gilt, boards with gilt- ruled edges with decorative bird-like motif at corners, inner dentelles gilt. 1f.

Folio, mostly in sixes, pp. [16], 443, 446 - 1031, [27], 76, [34], with an engraved title, dated 1656, designed by Francis Barlow, and integral engraved portrait vignettes in the last part (the space for the intended vignette of Priscian the Grammarian remains blank on 5G1 verso), title printed in red and black, separate title pages for 'The Lives of Epaminondas [etc.]', dated 1656, and for 'Prosopographia: or some select Pourtraitures and Lives by Andrew Thevet', dated 1657 (mistakenly bound before the 'Notes and Explanations' at 3T1); with an advertisement leaf and thirty-four pages of index; early prelims a little tattered, split in 5D2 without loss, but a very good copy in contemporary calf, rubbed, rebacked.'Fifth' (i.e. sixth) edition, with added material. North's celebrated translation of Plutarch has long been recognized as a major source for Shakespeare, providing not only the historical framework for Julius Caesar, Anthony and Cleopatra, and Coriolanus, but 'long passages of magnificent prose' that Shakespeare put 'into blank verse with little change' (F. E. Halliday).Dedicated to Elizabeth I, North's Plutarch first appeared in 1579 and was reprinted in 1595. The third edition (1603) was the first to add new material, appending lives translated from L'Escluse. There were no additions in the next two editions (1612, 1631), but, having been encouraged 'to venture upon a new and fifth impression', the stationer William Lee, wishing to render it 'both acceptable to the present Age, and famous to Posterity, decided to add the 'quintessence' of André Thevet's Pourtraits et vies des Hommes illustres Grecz, Latin, et Payens (Paris, 1584), being 'the very marrow of his observations during his twenty three yeers travails and Peregrinations, throughout the chiefest and remotest parts in the world (never as yet extant nor seen in English)'.Among the new biographies from Thevet (mostly translated by the playwright George Gerbier d'Ouvilly) are those of Aristotle, Homer, Sappho, Charlemagne, Tamburlaine, Atabalipa King of Peru, and Gutenberg, with a two-page poem commemorating his life and 'the Excellency of the Art of Printing'.Wing P 2633.

Description du livre : Printed for Sam. Smith, London, 1685. Hardcover. FIRST EDITION. 168 x 95 mm (6 5/8 x 3 3/4"). 16 p.l., 225, [1] pp., plus 13 pp. of ads at the back (also with two loose leaves from the end of Boyle's "Short Memoirs for the Natural Experimental History of Mineral Waters" [published 1684] laid in at front, and five leaves of ads from that work bound in before A1 here.). FIRST EDITION. Pleasing recent retrospective unlettered dark polished calf, raised bands. Rear flyleaf with seven lines of handwritten notes in red or purple ink. Fulton 166; Heirs of Hippocrates 366; Norman 306; Osler 949; Waller 1391; Wellcome II, 224; Wing B-4013. Frequent faint browning, occasional minor foxing, isolated corner creases, one tiny round wormhole in bottom margin, but still an excellent copy (especially for a cheaply made book like this), the text quite clean and fresh, and the binding unworn. These two treatises represent the efforts of the foremost scientist of the day to inject some theoretical science into what was then the practical art of medicine. The first treatise sets forth six propositions, with accompanying experiments" that describe Boyle's theories about the effects of certain medicines on the body. The second part is a plea for physicians to stop prescribing extremely complicated concoctions (some containing 20 ingredients) to treat their patients. However, Boyle does endorse the medieval belief in the healing powers of gems and stones from the heads of snakes. The youngest of the 14 children of the earl of Cork, Robert Boyle (1627-91) in 1660 published "New Experiments Physico-Mechanical," which became a milestone in the history of science. He was one of the founders of the Royal Society and a most active member throughout his life. Locke, Newton, and Evelyn were among his friends and correspondents. N° de réf. du libraire CJM1201

Description du livre : Paris, Jean Baptiste Coignard 1676., 1676. First edition (three further editions, essentially unchanged in content, appeared in the 1690s). Félibien, who then held official appointments as Secretary of the Académie Royale d?Architecture and historiographer of the Bâtimens du Roi, intended this as an introduction to the principles, techniques and vocabulary of the fine and applied arts, and he arranges his material into three separate sections dealing respectively with architecture, sculpture and painting. followed by a dictionary of terms. The first 296 pages are devoted to architecture, as are the first 46 of the engraved illustrations (which are an unexpectedly good source of information on the tools employed in the French building trade). The architecture section and the listing of architectural terms in the accompanying dictionary are of particular authority, for Félibien records in his preface that before publishing his book he had read the whole of it to meetings of the Académie Royale d?Architecture ; the Académie?s published proceedings show that these readings took place between September 1674 and February 1676, and during this period Félibien was able to revise his text in the light of advice and criticism from the Académie?s small but select membership (including at this time François Blondel, Libéral Bruand, François d?Orbay and Antoine Le Pautre).Although the present copy is intermittently stained internally, and is in a binding which although in red morocco is today somewhat worn, it is of some importance as a surviving book from the library of Frederik Walter (1649-1718), Master of Ceremonies at the court of King Frederik IV of Denmark. In our catalogue 42, item 29, we listed and illustrated a copy of Vincenzo Cartari?s Le Imagine de i Dei de gli Antichi, 1587, in a handsome red morocco binding identical in character to the present one except that the corner ornaments at each corner of the inner panels on the covers were from a different tool, but we were not then able to identify either the country where the binding was produced or the book collector for whom the binding was done. As we have now discovered, books bound for Frederik Walter, distinguishable by the presence of his device of a winged cupid in the centre of their upper and lower covers, and by the fact that they are usually bound in red morocco, are much sought after, both on account of the nature of the binding s themselves and because they form one of the few groups of books securely identifiable as having been bound for a private Danish book collector active around 1700. Our previous book from Walter?s library, that by Cartari, survived as part of the library formed by Lord Polwarth (afterwards 2nd Earl of Marchmont), who served as British Ambassador to Denmark between 1715 and 1721, while the present one has evidently passed through the hands of various subsequent Danish book collectors, commencing with an individual named P. Hagen who had his own name added in gilt letters above Walter?s Cupid device. BAL Cat. 1036 ; Fowler Cat 118. 4to. (22) + (795) + (1) pp, including 65 full-page engraved illustrations in text. Early eighteenth century gilt-panelled full red morocco, gilt spine, all edges gilt, with Cupid device of the contemporary Danish book collector Frederik Walter (1649-1718) in centre of upper and lower covers, and later gilt -stamped ownership inscription of P.Hagen on upper cover. Sides of binding rather worn, and scratch marks across areas of upper cover. Old dampstains affecting first eight pages and eleven subsequent signatures (pp 11-40, 129-144, 265-280, 305-312, 337-344, 353-376), in addition to stains on a few individual leaves elsewhere in the earlier part of the volume. Three later signatures (pp 569-576, 617-632) slightly browned owing to nature of paper stock. Initial letter W in ink at lower right hand corner of title leaf, confirming the fact that the copy belonged to Frederik Walter. Late eighteenth century or early nineteenth century ink ownership inscriptions. N° de réf. du libraire 07852

Description du livre : Chez, Claude Barbin, Jean Boudot, George & Louis Josse, avec privilège du Roy, Paris:, 1692. hardcover. . First edition. This work was first translated into English in 1693. "At this time, a major preoccupation of the Catholic Church and its China mission was to discover a safe land route from Europe to Peking through central Asia. This was due to the large numbers of out-going clergy who perished tragically every year at sea." (Ames & Love, p. 202). "The last decade of the century saw the publication of the accounts of several overland travelers to China and their destinations of China’s inner-Asian neighbors. The story of the Jesuit Philippe Avril’s attempt to establish a route across Russia for the safe passage of missionaries to China appeared in 1692 and includes descriptions of both the routes from Moscow to China and the peoples on China’s frontiers. Avril, himself, however, did not travel beyond Moscow, and his descriptions therefore are not the result of his own observations." (Lach & Kley, pp. 1685-1686). The same for Nicolaas Witsen. Avril Philippe, a Jesuit, born in France, explored extensively throughout Asia and the Far East. He was a professor of mathematics and philosophy in Paris before he began his overland journey. He traveled for six years through Kurdistan, Armenia, Astrakhan, Persia and other parts of the southeast. At one point he came to Moscow and was refused entry to Tatary. He was sent by the government to Poland via Istanbul and back to France. Apparently affected by exhaustion and disease he still undertook another voyage, his last, for the ship was lost at sea circa 1698. – Love, Ronald S. "A Passage to China: A French Jesuit’s Perceptions of Siberia in the 1680s." French Colonial History, 3: p. 94, 2003. Ames & Love offer: "Though obliged to leave Moscow, [Avril] did not return to France with Louis Barnabé Remaining instead at Warsaw, the two Jesuits had entered in early March 1688, Avril attempted twice more to achieve his objective or reaching China by land – if not through Siberia, then via Persia and Central Asia. Aided in part by the Polish monarch, John Sobieski (r.1674- 1696), and his ambassador to Russia, the French priest once again traveled to Moscow in late spring. Just two days after his arrival in the Muscovite capital, however, Avril was ordered summarily out of the country. Once again, he appealed the command in vain. ‘Russia intended to keep her trade with China a secret.’ Nor did he have better luck later the same year (1688), when he and a fellow Jesuit, Père de Beauvillier, tried going south to Constantinople instead, and thence through Persia to Bokhara, Samarkland, and the Chinese frontier. Crossing secretly into Ottoman territory, the two men were arrested as spies. After several weeks, they secured their release and resumed their trek. But Avril, whose health had been waning as a result of relentless exertions, suddenly developed a hemorrhage. Ordered to abandon the search and return home by his superiors, he reached France in autumn 1689." (Ames & Love, p. 219). For Abbé Emile Longin, provenance, see: Bulletin de la Société des sciences et arts du Beaujolais, (1904), p.92. There is a Maggs Bros. [London booksellers], receipt of sale of this copy to Armand Pushman, 10, Nov. 1932. Armand was one of two sons of Hovsep Pushman (1877-1966), an American artist of Armenian descent. He had studied art at the Imperial School of Fine Arts, Istanbul. For a time Pushman lived at the famous Mission Inn, Riverside, California. He was also involved in the founding of the Laguna Beach Art Association. Armand Pushman (d.1999), lived to 98 years and had been throughout his career a partner with his brother in their carpet business Pushman & Company. See: NYT, Obituary, January 11, 1999.

Re-binded leather spine with gilt lettering. A fine copy of a very collectable book;-Richard Vines (1600–1656), puritan divine, was born at Blaston, Leicestershire, about 1600. He was educated at Magdalene College, Cambridge, where he graduated B.A. 1622, M.A. 1627. He was an excellent Greek scholar. About 1624 he became schoolmaster at Hinckley, Leicestershire, where John Cleveland [q. v.], the cavalier poet, was among his scholars, and owed much to his training. On the death of James Cranford (1627) he was presented to the rectory of Weddington, Warwickshire, and instituted on 11 March 1627–8. In 1630 he was presented by William Purefoy [q. v.] to the neighbouring rectory of Caldecote, was instituted 10 June, and held both livings, worth together 80l. a year; but the parish register at Hinckley shows that he was still living there in 1640. Having gifts as a preacher, he conducted a weekly lecture at Nuneaton, which was largely attended, and attracted hearers from distant places, among them being Samuel Clarke (1599–1683) [q. v.], afterwards his intimate friend. In 1642 he was presented for Warwickshire as one of the ‘orthodox divines’ to be consulted by parliament ‘touching the reformation of church government and liturgie.’ He preached a fast sermon before the House of Commons (30 Nov. 1642) which made a great impression. Owing to the disturbed state of his county, he took refuge in Coventry early in 1643, with other puritans, and took part in the daily lecture there. Nominated a member of the Westminster assembly by the ordinance of 12 June 1643, he went up to London, and was placed in the rectory of St. Clement Danes, vacant by the sequestration of Richard Dukeson, D.D. (d. 17 Sept. 1678, aged 77). Robert Devereux, third earl of Essex [q. v.], was his parishioner. On 18 March 1643–4 he was made, against his wishes, master of Pembroke Hall, Cam- bridge, by the Earl of Manchester, on the ejection of Benjamin Laney [q. v.] He kept his place in the assembly, but did good work in the college. He found it, according to Clarke, ‘very empty of scholars, and the buildings much out of order,’ having been used as military quarters; his reputation ‘quickly drew scholars,’ and he proved himself a capable administrator and promoter of learning. In June 1644 he was invited by the civic authorities to the vicarage of St. Michael’s, Coventry, but declined. He was placed on the parliamentary ‘committee of accommodation’ (13 Sept. 1644), and chosen chairman (20 Sept.) of the acting sub-committee; his defence of the validity of ordination by presbyters (though himself episcopally ordained) ‘was much applauded by his own party’ (Fuller). At the Uxbridge conference (30 Jan.–18 Feb. 1645) he was one of the assisting divines. On 22 May 1645 Essex presented him to the rectory of Watton, Hertfordshire, when he resigned St. Clement Danes. He preached at Essex’s funeral (22 Oct. 1646). N° de réf. du libraire 235

Description du livre : Le Mans, Jacques Ysambart 1662., 1662. First and only edition of a significant text in the history of art, dedicated to the Duc D?Orleans, Louis XIV?s younger brother. Its author, Roland Fréart, Sieur de Chambray (1606-1676), had been sent to Rome by the French government in 1640, and while there had become a friend of the painter Nicolas Poussin, as well as an admirer of the writings on architecture by Andrea Palladio, of which he made the first complete translation into French. Fréart?s publications in the early 1650s also included a comparative study of the classical orders of architecture and a translation of Leonardo da Vinci?s treatise on painting, and by 1662 he had become a recognised authority on all artistic topics. Here he identifies the elements of painting as invention, proportion, colour, expression and composition, and discusses the work both of painters of antiquity and of Raphael, Durer, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and, notably, Poussin (pp 121-5). Since his book was printed and published in Le Mans, rather than in Paris, it is somewhat uncommon. Copies of it are often found bound up with Fréart?s translation into French of Euclid?s treatise on perspective, published in Le Mans in the following year (e.g. the De Vitry copy, Sotheby 10-11 April 2002, lot 395, which seems to have lacked two leaves at the end carrying the ?Privilege du Roy?, present in our copy), but our copy is in a contemporary binding and must have been bound separately from the start. 4to.

Edition rare de cette nouvelle version du Dictionnaire Français-Latin de Jean Nicot, revue et augmentée de plusieurs termes par Jean Baudoin. Cette version est fondée en particulier sur l'édition genevoise de Jacob Stoer de 1605. Cette version du premier travail de Nicot ne doit pas être confondue avec son Thresor de la Langue françoise paru en 1606, qui est un extrait des termes français du Dictionnaire français-latin. Les éditions et variantes de ces dictionnaires sont très nombreuses et difficiles à démêler (voir le travail de Wooldridge sur ce sujet) mais les exemplaires préservés de nos jours sont tous rares. Agréable exemplaire dans sa première reliure en maroquin de l'époque. Arbour, 19855; BBA XXVI, 229, n°27. N° de réf. du libraire 14428

 A lovely set, finely bound, of the first and only edition of Pliny's Natural History printed by the Elzevir press, edited by Jean de Laet. “The text is that of Salmasius, and is considered to be very correct. This is the only duodecimo edition of the Elder Pliny ever published by the Elzevir family, and its beauty is a theme of extraordinary commendation by the French bibliographers. M. Renouard, who is supposed to have the finest known copy of it - and which copy cost him about 10l. of our money - is minute and interesting. Bibl. d’un Amateur, vol. i p. 244. . A copy of this Pliny (executed by Bonaventure and Abraham Elzevir) preserved in the important library of M. Huzard, shews us the pains taken by the printer, for the correction of the text. This copy has the text printed only on one side, and the blank side is pasted on paper of a folio form; each folio page having two columns of text. The margins, which contain plentiful corrections, evince the solicitude of the printers in obtaining an accurate text.” Dibdin. An introduction to the knowledge of rare and valuable editions of the Greek. Vol. II p. 323. "The 'Natural History' of Pliny the Elder is more than a natural history, it is an encyclopaedia of all the knowledge of the ancient world . It comprises thirty-seven books dealing with mathematics and physics, geography and astronomy, medicine and geology, anthropology and physiology, philosophy and history, agriculture and mineralogy, the arts and letters . scholars as various as Humboldt and Grimm have praised and acknowledged their debt to it. Over and over again, it will be found that the source of some ancient piece of knowledge is Pliny" Printing and the Mind of Man 5 on the ed. princ. The arts section alone tells us more than any other single work about classical silver and bronze work, painting, modeling and sculpture. It is also of tremendous interest in all that concerns the Romans interest in food and wine. “Après Columelle, Pline est de tous les auteurs latins celui auquel nous devons le plus de données sur les différentes espèces de vignes et de vins connues des anciens” Simon Bibl. Bacchica. Book XIV is consecrated to wine, 22 chapters treat the subject in great detail. The book also gives much information on agriculture, fruit, both cultivated and wild, wheat, fish and game, medicinal plants, bees, perfumes etc. Book XV is entirely consecrated to fruit with recipes on how to conserve them. “Dans Pline, on trouve tout” Oberlé, Les Fastes de Bacchus et de Comus. A very handsome set of this rare and beautifully printed edition. 
William Parkinson Ruxton of Red House in County Louth (1766 – 11 October 1847) was an Irish Member of Parliament. He was elected to the Irish House of commons for Ardee in 1790 and then again in 1799, sitting until the Parliament of Ireland was abolished by the act of Union 1800. N° de réf. du libraire L1296
