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".

Description du livre : Antoine Cellier, Lyon, 1678. Contemporary Full Calf. État : Very Good. [22], 405 pp / 417 pp, [13] / 226 pp, French text with some Greek, engraved frontispiece portrait of Spon + 32 plates, mostly folding, half-titles, title vignettes, binding slightly rubbed, marbled endpapers in volumes I and II only, vol. III has white endpapers, title gilt on raised decorated spine, title on red label, speckled outer edges, small tear to one plate in volume 1, previous owner’s inscription on title page of volume III, Bookplate of Gaspard De Clermont verso front cover of volume II, occasional spotting, otherwise set well preserved. This is one of the most important accounts of travels in the Levant, and the first description of Athens which was systematic, detailed, and trustworthy. as Laborde says, "la publication du voyage de Spon fut un evenement litteraire". Chateaubriand praised the work: "tout le monde connait le merite de cet ouvrage, ou l’art et l’antiquite sont traites avec une critique jusqu’alors ignoree". Spon and Wheler met in Italy in 1675; they travelled together with Francis Vernon to Zakynthos, where the two groups separated. Spon and Wheler continued by sea to Constantinople, and Vernon travelled overland. The great merit of Spon’s work is due to its combination of a careful and knowledgeable interest in classical antiquity with an accurate observation of men, manners and topography in Modern Greece. The whole of volume II is devoted to Greece and includes a glossary of modern Greek words and phrases with instructions on pronunciation. Spon’s interest in Greece was long standing. He had already published Babin’s description of Athen’s, which had been communicated to him by the Abbe Pecoil of Lyon, with his own notes and preface. Blackmer 1586; Weber 406; Laborde II, pp 1-27.

Dos bruni et tâches sur les plats. Une mouillure claire marge inférieure sans atteinte au texte sur l'ensemble de l'ouvrage. Giuseppe Viola Zanini (1575-1631), né à Vincence et mort à Padoue, fut un peintre et un architecte qui travailla dans les environs de Venise. Il fut davantage un peintre de décor, renommé pour tel, qu'un architecte actif, l'architecture l'intéressant comme moyen d'expression du décor peint. L'ouvrage est divisé en deux parties, la première partie s'intéressant aux origines de l'architecture et aux éléments qui la composent, ainsi que de la façon dont on doit construire, le second livre est lui entièrement dévolu aux cinq ordres.

Description du livre : Mazzarino, por Juan Vanberge, Flamengo, 1691., 1691. Petit in-4. (le feuillet *1 n'existe pas) 7ff. 285pp. Plein veau, dos à nerfs orné (rleiure du 18e siècle, frottée). Edition Originale extrêmement rare, publiée à Mazzarino en Sicile. Cet ouvrage curieux fut publié à la mort de l'auteur par son ami Diego Vicencio de Vidania, célèbre bibliophile et numismate originaire de Huesca (Aragon). Il est divisé en deux parties. La première (pp.1-130) est un exercice littéraire de symbolisme, dans lequel l'auteur s'attache à décrire les concepts en termes poétiques, pour leur donner ensuite une interprétation symbolique. Ainsi la "Descripcion de la felicidad" est suivie de "El Microscopio, simbolo de la felicidad ", la "Descripcion del Tiempo" de "El Tiempo, simbolo de la Prudencia", la "Descripcion de los sueños" de "Simbolo de los sueños fue el capricho de Pintor celebre en un quadro, que por un lado se descubria un Leon, por otro una Aguila y mirandole de medio a medio se veia un Hombre", etc. La deuxième partie (pp.131-285) est un recueil de 33 déclamations prenant pour thème divers épisodes remarquables de l'histoire ou de la mythologie, autant de situations dont l'auteur s'exerçait à exprimer les ressorts tragiques sous forme de courtes déclamations de quelques pages. Felix de Lucio Espinosa y Malo (1646-1691) vécut la plus grande partie de sa vie en Italie. Il fut mémorialiste de la couronne d'Aragon, de celle de Castille et secrétaire d'état du roi Carlos II en Sicile, où il mourut en 1691 laissant une œuvre remarquable par son érudition et par sa diversité: histoire, poésie, histoire des arts, etc. Rarissime impression de la petite ville sicilienne de Mazzarino où le premier livre ne fut imprimé qu'en 1687 (cf. Deschamps), chez le même imprimeur qui était flamand d'origine. L'ouvrage fut réimprimé en 1693 à Saragosse. Reliure manipulée mais bon exemplaire, l'un de ceux tirés sur papier fort auxquels Palau fait allusion. Palau, 82801: "Hay ejemplares en papel fuerte". 3 exemplaires seulement au catalogue collectif espagnol et 4 exemplaires au catalogue collectif italien (les deux donnent un collationnement identique au nôtre, sans le feuillet *1).

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, François Le Cointe for the author & Nicolas Langlois, 1683. Hardcover. État : Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. 4to. Engraved title + [4]f + 445p + [9]f including errata leaf. Title with vignette of a bomb about to explode with descriptive legend, over 130 diagrams and textual engravings (22 full-page), 10 tables (4 full-page), attractive vignette at each of the four chapter headings, ornamental floral tail-pieces throughout. Contemporary marbled calf; backstrip gilt; worn; ends of spine repaired. The rare first edition of this seminal artillery handbook based on Galilei's doctrine of a trajectory as a parabola, and the earliest application of this theory to military science. Arranged in four parts, the book begins with a general discussion of the theories advocated by Galilei, Tartaglia, Ufano, Collado, Rivaut de Flurance, Siemienowski, Elrich and Cassini. The second part describes a number of instruments and sinus tables to facilitate the task of the bombardier. The third part is devoted to trajectory theory, and the final section addresses practical problems in the application of these theories. Blondel, an architect and military engineer, was quartermaster general, inspector of public works in Paris, and tutor to the Dauphin. He also taught mathematics at the French Academy of Sciences. His manuscript was presented to Louis XIV in 1675, but publication was delayed for eight years for fear it might profit the enemy. It served as the basic text for the newly formed French Bombardier Company, and was often re-printed and translated. The fine engraved illustrations are by Jean-Baptiste Broebes, engraver and architect, a pupil of Jean Marot (cf.Thieme-Becker V: 44); the frontispiece and 2 plates are signed by him. A tall, well preserved copy; edges of tailend blank margins of last quire with isolated light waterstain. An 18th century manuscript note in blank title margin states that this book was donated by brigadier Filippi to the Capuchin library at Racconiggi in 1775. Jähns 1240-1242; Riling 180; Spaulding & Karpinski 187; Goldsmith (1203) lists an 1685 imprint as the earliest edition held by the British Library; Kiely, Surveying Instruments, 113; Lipperheide (Ra3) lists 1699 edition giving date of first edition in error as 1689.

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

Horace naquit en 65 avant J. C. à Venosa, aux frontières de l'Apulie et de la Lucanie, dans le sud de l'actuelle Italie, et décéda en 8 avant J. C à Tibur. Il reçu une éducation soignée et étudia le grec et la philosophie à Rome et Athènes. Suite à l'assassinat de Jules César en 44 avant Jésus Christ, il commanda une legion dans l'armée des > de Brutus. Après la bataille de Philippes le 22 octobre 42 avant J. C. et la défaite de Brutus (qui se suicida), face à octave et Marc Antoine, Horace, vaincu et amnistié retourna en Italie. Réduit à la pauvreté, il se mit à la poésie. En 17 avant Jésus Christ, il composa le ''Chant séculaire''. En 35 et 29 avant J. C. il publia les ''Satires'', recueils en hexamètres dactyliques de dix et huit pièces. Les épodes, publiées en 29 avant J. C., sont écrites en distiques, formées de 625 vers, dont 4 probablement apocryphes. Les odes furent publiées entre 23 et 7 avant Jésus Christ, en 4 livres de 3 038 vers, dont 6 apocryphes. Enfin les ''Epîtres'' furent publiées en 19/18 avant Jésus Christ, composés de 1 006 vers dont 7 probablement apocryphes, 270 et 206 vers. S'y ajoute ''l'Epitre aux pisons'', plus connu sous le nom ''d'Art poétique'' en 476 vers. Ce sont des lettres fictives dans lesquelles Horace y a déposé son testament spirituel et la quintessence de sa sagesse. N° de réf. du libraire 3086

Description du livre : Madrid, Melchor Alegre, 1673. 1673, 1673. 1 vol. in-8° (209 x 159 mm.) de : [2] ff. (Titre, Approbation), 276 pp. Nombreux ornements typographiques. Quelques erreurs de pagination sans incidence sur le texte. Plein vélin d'époque, dos titré à l'encre brune, fermoirs en parchemin. (Nombreux feuillets uniformément roussis, mouillures, et petites taches, petits défauts de papier. Rares annotations manuscrites à l'encre brune). Première édition collective des trois œuvres principales d'Antonio Guevara (c. 1481–1545): 'Menosprecio de corte' ('Le mépris de la cour'), 'Aviso de privados' ('Moyen de parvenir', traduit par 'Réveille-matin des courtisans') et 'Arte del marear y trabajos de la galera' ('Traité des travaux et privilèges des galères et de l'art de naviguer'). Franciscain, "plume" de Charles-Quint, fortement influencé par le stoïcisme, Érasme et l'utopisme de Thomas More, Antonio Guevara est le théoricien d'une vision originale de l'empire hispanique. Il développe sa vision pacifiste et messianique de l'impérialisme et médite sur la place de l'homme dans son milieu. Il prend ainsi la défense des Indiens proche de "l'âge d'or" par opposition au mode de vie occidental, particulièrement celui des villes et de la Cour, mondain et corrupteur. Le dernier livre, "Arte de marear", constitue un traité documenté sur les techniques espagnoles de navigation et une importante source pour l’histoire des connaissances maritimes en Europe au XVIe siècle. 1 vol. 8vo. Numerous woodcat ornaments. Contemporary full vellum. First collective edition of the three main works by Antonio Guevara (C. 1481-1545). Franciscan, Charles Quint's writter, deeply influenced by Thomas More, Guevara is the theoretician of an original vision of the Hispanic Empire. The last book, "Arte del Marear" is a documented treatise on Spanish naval technology and an important source for the European maritime sciences in the 16th century. N° de réf. du libraire 2518

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]. BL Italian, 17th c., p. 820; BM Readex Vol. 22, p. 617; Brunet I, p.759; Graesse p. 330. 4to.

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.

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

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 : 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

The @Estatutos had originally been published in 1559; another edition or version appeared in 1593; however, the present work is not a later edition, but rather a different document, with numerous differences. At the end is a ten page "Regimento dos medicos e boticarios Christãos Velhos" signed by D. Filipe II of Portugal (D. Filipe III of Spain) in 1604. It stipulates, among other things, that no students of Jewish or Moorish ancestry are to be admitted to the study of medicine, surgery or pharmacy. It is followed by three unnumbered leaves with a "Repertorio do Regimento dos medicos e boticarios Christão Velhos." Absolutely complete copies such as the present one almost never appear on the market. Sometimes the engraved plate is missing, as is occasionally true of the ten page "Regimento dos medicos e boticarios Christãos Velhos", and the integral blank leaves, while the three unnumbered leaves at the end with the "Repertorio do Regimento dos medicos e boticarios Christão Velhos" are rarely present.@Provenance: Library of the Duques de Lafões. The second Duque de Lafões, D. João Carlos de Bragança Sousa Ligne Tavares Mascarenhas da Silva (1719-1806) was of the closest possible affinity to the royal house: his father was the legitimized son of D. Pedro II. A nobleman of great talent and public spirit, he led the aristocratic opposition to the Marques de Pombal. He was also a man of great culture, and while living in exile during Pombal's tenure assisted both Gluck and Mozart. In the quarter-century after Pombal's fall, the Duque de Lafões became a dominant public figure, holding high public offices and founding the Real Academia das Sciencias de Lisboa to assure that Portugal would share the benefits of the Enlightenment.
