Description de l'article : Leiden, Elzevir, 1619, 1619. 4to (203 x 155 mm), pp [viii] 156, with woodcut printer's device on title and several woodcut diagrams in text; a fine, unpressed copy in contemporary Dutch vellum, remains of green silk ties.First edition of Snel's account of the 1618 comets, accompanied by the first publication of Christoph Rothmann's account of the 1585 comet. 'His descriptions of the comets of 1585 and 1618, published in 1619, show Snel to be a follower of the Ptolemaic system. Although he demonstrated from the parallax that the comet was beyond the moon and therefore could not consist of terrestrial vapors, he still believed in the character of comets as omnia' (DSB).'Rothmann's importance derives mainly from his correspondence with Tycho Brahe. Tycho had visited William IV in Kassel in 1575; but they did not communicate again until the comet of 1585, which led to an exchange of letters between Tycho in Hven and William IV and Rothmann in Kassel that lasted for six years. A last letter was written by Rothmann from Bernburg in 1594. This correspondence covered all aspects of contemporary astronomy: instruments and methods of observing, the Copernican system (which Rothmann supported against Tycho's system), comets, and auroras' (DSB).Christoph Rothmann (ca 1560 - ca 1600) 'constructed the first modern star catalog based entirely on his own observations. He was one of the most outstanding astronomers of the 16th century, but we have scant information on Rothmann's life .'In November 1584 he started to work with Landgrave Wilhelm IV of Hessen-Kassel as an astronomer at the local observatory . Rothmann stayed in Kassel until mid 1590. In the summer of that year he went on a journey to Brahe, studied his instruments, and left Brahe's island on September 1 .'After observing the comet of 1585, Rothmann was one of the first astronomers to conclude that comets are cosmic objects. Rothmann had observed the comet from 8 October to 8 November, did not find a parallax, and determined the distance between the comet and the Earth to be 500,000 German miles; therefore it must have been far beyond the sphere of the Moon' (Jürgen Hamel and Eckehard Rothenberg, in Biographical Encyclopedia of Astronomers I p 987).Bierens de Haan 4393; Willems 165.

Description de l'article : Amsterdam, Louis Elzevir, 1648. Hardcover. Etat : Very Good. Folio. Engraved title + [3]f + 543 (misnumbered 547)p. With 70 engraved plates and 10 double-sided leaves of tables. Contemporary vellum; neatly rebacked. First edition in French, the translation by Helie Poirier made from the original Latin of 1647 published at the same press. This work on Dutch military architecture is unique in its period for the 40 accurate plans of existing fortified towns and for its careful attention to quantity surveying. The fine engraved title shows surveyors at work with a fortress in the background. Dögen (c.1605-72), a Prussian mathematician, presents his arguments based on practical experience gained in military service under Maurice and later, Frederick Henry of Orange. He considered the building of fortresses during peace time one of the best guarantees for the prevention of war. A few occasional light spots, but a very good, crisp copy, rare in this state. From the collection of the Earl of Ancaster with his engraved armorial bookplate pasted inside front cover (signed Harry Soane 1896).

Description de l'article : London: [The Elzevir Press for] Hodge and Essex, [but 1877]., 1877. Large 4to, six parts: pp. [2], 30; [3]-37, [1 blank]; [3]-27, [1 blank]; [3]-54; [3]-26; [3]-40; wood-engraved initials, head- and tail-pieces; a very good copy in original publisher's crimson blocked cloth, gilt, title to front board within elaborate border in black and gilt, with medallions depicting: a ship; fasces; swan; harp; ouroboros; and a bust of Wagner; rear board blocked in blind; spine gilt, lower joint entirely split revealing printed waste to spine; rubbed at head and foot of spine and at corners, else good; loosely inserted programme notice for the fourth concert, somewhat dusty, with creases; scattered contemporary manuscript notes in pencil to concerts 4-6, detailing instrumentation, adding comments ('!!!!! Tremendous'), and recording the sections cut from concerts 5 and 6 in performance; notes to flyleaves detailing the programmes for the 7th and 8th concerts.First edition, very rare, an attractive volume collecting the separately-issued programmes for the initial run of six concerts during the first Wagner Festival at the Royal Albert Hall in May 1877, with a general title-page. The texts are printed in German and English in parallel the first appearance of the texts in English.Wagner came to London in the hope of recouping some of the losses incurred by the inaugural Bayreuth Festival of 1876, which was a major financial disaster. This trip would only refresh memories of the minor humiliations endured during his 1855 visit to England (Cummings, p. 429), which he derided as the "land of the oratorio". However, thanks to the efforts of his disciples (several of whom had adopted England as their home, ending their days in places such as Hastings) Wagner had already gained some musical ground in England. One of the 'rehearsals conductors' in this programme, Edward Dannreuther (1844-1905) had been instrumental in forming the early foundations for Wagnerian taste in England. He was a member of a private musical group called the Working Men's Society, formed in 1867, and had guided its members through the score of Wagner's Tristan (ibid., p. 406). He was also the principal conductor for the London Wagner Society, whose first concert was in 1873 and was the first all-Wagner concert in London (ibid). In addition to Dannreuther's efforts, the Prussian conductor August Manns (1825-1907) had conducted excerpts from Rienzi, Tannhäuser and Die Meistersinger at the Crystal Palace concerts in the 1860s and early 1870s. 'Manns even performed an extract from theRing, the "Ride of the Valkyries," at a charity concert for the blind as early as 1877' (ibid., p. 406). Another disciple already in England was August Willhelmj (1845-1908), leader of the orchestra in London as he had been in Bayreuth. It was possibly Willhelmj who first suggested the idea of a London festival; it was certainly Willhelmj who hired the dodgy agents Hodge and Essex (on whom more later). The third and most important disciple to come to London was Hans Richter (1843-1916), who conducted the Ring at Bayreuth in 1876, leading to an immediate appointment as conductor of the Vienna Hofoper. His new job put Richter in a very uncomfortable position when Wagner began calling his disciples to London, and his new employers proved to be quite as bloody-minded as 'the Master'. After threatening to cut all ties with Vienna, Wagner eventually promised the rights to a production of the Ring in Vienna in return for Richter's absence (ibid., p. 403). 'It was the beginning of a glorious English career for the young maestro, as remarkable for its longevity as for its many musical triumphs. Surely no one at that festival could have divined that this dedicated Wagner disciple would become a mainstay on England's podiums for the next three decades', including the inaugural conductorship of the London Symphony Orchestra (ibid., p. 395). Wagner was due to conduct the first half of each concert, with Richter managing the Ring sections in the second half. During rehearsals, th. N° de réf. du vendeur E5066

Description de l'article : Amsterdam, Louis Elzevir, 1643. Hardcover. Etat : Very Good. 1st Edition. [THE BALUZE DE ROTHESAY SCHIFF COPY] FIRST EDITION. 12mo, pp. [12], 499, [81]. Roman letter, little Italic and Greek; printer s device on title, floriated initials; pin hole at blank head of title, tiny rustspot to outer lower margin of p. 193, tiny splash to (a)10 in final index; A very good copy in early nineteenth-century straight-grained dark blue morocco, by Simier, gilt border with palmette and flowers, central coat of arms of Lord Stuart de Rothesay (1779-1845); spine elaborately gilt with floral decoration and title, a. e. g., marbled pastedowns and endpapers; corners and head of spine very lightly rubbed; ex libris label of the American banker Mortimer Loeb Schiff (1877-1931) on front pastedown, late seventeenth-century inscription Stephanus Baluzius Tutelensis lightly faint at foot of title. Elegantly bound first edition of a legal university textbook published by the Elzevir press in the distinctive portable format. Johannes Arnold Corvinus (c.1582-1650) was a Dutch jurist, Arminian minister and practitioner in Amsterdam. A follower of Hugo Grotius, he authored several pamphlets and essays as well as a few influential textbooks on Roman law for higher education. Postumus Pacianus is named after the Italian Calvinist Giulio Pace (1550-1635), who taught law and philosophy successfully throughout Europe and published a long-lasting edition of Aristotle s Organon. Corvinus dedicated this work to the city council of Leiden and to any young student of law eager to learn more. This copy belonged to Etienne Baluze (1630 1718), a prominent French bibliophile, Latin philologist, Church historian and professor of canon law at the Collége Royal in Paris. Baluze is mostly famous for having served Jean-Baptiste Colbert as keeper of his legendary library. Baluze s vast personal collection of books and manuscripts, including a significant portion of Mazarin s papers, was sold at auction by Martin and Baudot in 1719. Later in the century, the book was acquired by Charles, 1st Baron Stuart of Rothesay (1779-1845). A major figure of British diplomacy during the Napoleonic wars and the Restoration, he was ambassador to Portugal, the Netherlands, Spain and, most importantly, to the France of Louis XVIII between 1815 and 1824. Probably during the latter period, Stuart commissioned this fine morocco binding to the Parisian family workshop Simier. Not in Brunet or Graesse. Willems, 996. N° de réf. du vendeur L2208

Min. Cappuccinorum and stamp of Capuchins library of S. Maria Angelica in Bruges to ffep. Good copies of these forged editions of three major Jesuit works probably compiled by Mutio Vitelleschi (1563-1645). He was the Sixth Superior General of the Society of Jesus, and professor of theology, philosophy and logic at Roman Collegia. These three works gathered together important texts for the continuing education of Jesuits worldwide, as reliable, approved reference manuals. Directorium is an introduction to the meaning, purpose and techniques for undertaking St Ignatius s spiritual exercises and meditation, spanning the course of a four-week retreat, on Christ s life and suffering. The Epistolae is a collection of letters from major figures of the Order (St Ignatius, Aquaviva, Mercuriano, Borgia, Laines and Vitelleschi) to superiors and members on theology and the Jesuits spiritual mission. The third work, a detailed Index generalis of the Institutiones , reveals the original context of these works, part of a 16-volume series called Corpus institutionum societatis Jesu . Separately printed, they were found as stand-alone or bound, as in this case, in a sammelband of two or three. Whilst the first edition of the Corpus was published by Jan Meurs in 1635, the present copies were published two to three decades later by Jan Schipper in Amsterdam, without the license of the Society of Jesus. A distinction is the spelling Joannem with a J on the t-ps of the first and second, as well as the woodcut vignette of St Ignatius with the Latin motto on all three. Two theories have been put forward. First, a copy of the 1635 edition was seized in England during the Cromwellian era and sent to Amsterdam (Sommervogel V, 81, add.); or second, according to a Jesuit s account from the 1660s, copies of the original were found on board a Portuguese ship bound for Brazil, captured and taken to Holland during the Dutch-Portuguese War (1653-57) (Begheyn, De Elzeviers , 65). Because Schipper often employed other printers for his publications, and on the basis of a close analysis of initials and ornaments, this edition has been attributed to the press of Daniel and/or Louis III Elzevir in the years 1653-71 (Miert, Een onopgemerkte , 131-38; Impe, Corpus ). The pirated edition was probably intended for the Low Countries, where the Jesuits were flourishing; the early ownership of this copy can indeed be traced to Leuven. An important sammelband with editions of special bibliographical interest for Elzevir collectors unnoticed by Willems. This volume was once in the library of Petrus Ludovicus Danes Casletanus (1683-1736), professor of theology, influenced by Scholasticism, at Leuven in the 1730s. The following owner, Henri-Joseph Rega (1690-1754), was a Dutch physician, rector at Leuven. His interest in Jesuit theology probably urged him to take sides against the spreading Jansenism, which led to a fall in student numbers. In the C19, it belonged to Antonius Joannes Philippus Wemaer, professor of Physics at Ghent, and to the convent of the Capuchins in Bruges. I) Backer-Sommervogel V, 81.

Description de l'article : Elzevir Press,, Leyden, 1638. First edition of this famous work in urology, one of the earliest medical books to accept William Harvey's account of the circulation of the blood. Beverwyck was a Dutch physician and a relative of Vesalius. He sent a copy of this work to Harvey with a letter praising him for his work on circulation, saying "As everyone here wonderingly admires this doctrine, so I too embrace it both both arms in the little book which I send 'On the calculus of the kidneys and the bladder'". Harvey replied at length, praising the work with the punning passage: "Pleasing me, learned and elegant, and truly original, your De calculo renum et vesicae, in which you have laid a firm and solid foundation for your name and fame; go on to build further day by day, and erect a splendid monument of your genius. I will, not unwillingly, add my stone." He went on to provide a detailed and approving critique of Beverwyk's work on the operation of the kidneys. 12mo (122 × 70 mm.), pp. [xvi], 305, [15]. Woodcut Elzevir device to title, woodcut initials. Title soiled, with traces of an early ownership inscription, some scattered spotting, a few early ink underlinings. Contemporary vellum, title in old manuscript to spine. Rubbed (further wear in places) and slightly soiled, with the covers a little bowed. A good copy.

PRO POPULO ANGLICANO DEFENSIO. Joannis Miltoni Angli: MILTON, JOHN and

Description de l'article : 1651; 1649, London, i.e. Amsterdam: Du Gardianis [i.e.J. Jansson?]; [Leiden]: [Elzevir], 1651. Two titles in one. 3 x 5 inches. Text in Latin and some Greek. Original vellum with 'Salmasius pro, Milton contra' and Commonwealth arms on spine in manuscript. These two works are bound together in the same volume. Various ink annotations verso front cover and pencil annotations on first blank page made by previous owners. Sympathetically recased at some point Pro Popolo Anglicano Defensio decorated with Commonwealth arms on title page; Defensio Regia decorated with title page, head and tail vignettes and initials. PRO POPULO ANGLICAN DEFENSIO Probably the Jansson edition of Milton's response to the Defensio by Salmasius (Claude de Saumaise,1588-1653) published in 1649. Milton's response was celebrated as a victory over the defence of Salmasius of absolute monarchy and the Divine Right of Kings. The work, written in Latin is noted for its colourful invectives such as a 'dung-hill Frenchman' and indignant attacks on the French scholar. Milton questions how the great European scholar could defend the principle of divine right and he defends the overthrow of the monarchy by the people. The 'Pro Populo Anglicano Defensio' was a pivotal work for Milton who gained recognition and fame through his powerful response to Salmasius' argument. DEFENSIO REGIA. This is the second edition of this work, published anonymously in the same year as the first edition. Both editions were published by the Elzevirs in Leiden. The printing of the Defensio is said to have been paid for by the exiled Charles II, who asked Salmasius (Claude de Saumaise 1588-1653) a renowned French and Classical scholar and Professor at the University of Leiden, to write a work defending the case of his father. In the Defensio, Salmasius condemns the parliamentary government in England and upholds the Divine Right of Kings. He wrote his work in Latin and it was censored in England, one of the censors being John Milton. Dutch Protestant printers produced these works in large numbers and their bibliography is incredibly complex: false imprints, no imprints and lack of dates being frequent. The deception was fired by the greed of the same printers competing for the Spanish theological printing contracts and so guarding their anonymity. It is for this reason that the order of precedence of these printings is very difficult to identify.

Description de l'article : Bonaventure & Abraham Elzevir,, Leyden, 1643. First Elzevir edition of this biography of the French protestant hero Gaspard de Coligny. Coligny had been appointed Admiral of France in 1552 and was captured at the siege of St Quentin in 1557. In the two years of his captivity he became a convinced Calvinist and went on to lead the French Huguenots in the religious wars against Catholic dominance in France. He was implicated in the murder of Francis, Duke of Guise in February 1563, an event which was to lead ultimately to the Massacre of St Bartholomew in 1572, in which Coligny himself was killed under the direct supervision of the Duke's son, Henry.Coligny's life became an inspiration to Protestants throughout Europe. It was first printed in Latin in 1575 and had previously appeared in French earlier the same year, in a quarto edtion. 2 parts in one vol., 12mo (130 × 70 mm.), pp. [viii], 143, [1]; 88. Woodcut Elzevir device to the 2 titles. Very light browning throughout, mainly marginal. Early full vellum with yapp edges, exposed cords at joints, spine neatly lettered in later manuscript, now indistinct. An appealing copy. [Willems 564 'ce petit volume, parfaitement exécuté, est un des plus recherché de la collection elzevirienne.']. N° de réf. du vendeur 1131

Physiologica in this sense included discourses on physics, chemistry, meteorology, medicine & related subjects as well as observations that we would still classify as physiology [eg dog's digestive system]. There are accounts of purely chemical research. According to Fulton "the importance of this work lies in the fact that in a very real sense it was a prologue to the Sceptical Chymist since it continued the attack on the alchemists began in New experiments, and actually it was as much of a landmark in the history of chemistry" [as those other works]. It gives the first clear outline of his corpuscular theory of the nature of matter (Fulton 29, Wellcome I 221, Garrison & Morton). 1 volume. Hardcover. N° de réf. du vendeur V69672

Description de l'article : Daniel Elzevir, Villafranca (Amsterdam), 1673. Full-Leather. Etat : Very Good. La Rettorica was reprinted in Venice in 1648, but along with Pallavicino's other works, had to wait until the 1660s and 1670s before Daniel Elzevir published further editions in Amsterdam. The present volume seems to comprise the first four works from his Opere scelte of 1673, which is a reprint of the 1671 edition with the addition of a new title-page, La Rettorica and La Pudicitia schernita (the former was also published separately). 4 parts in one volume, 1671/1673, [12] 70 [2]: [8] 9-68 [4] 73-206: [2] 124: [8] 76pp, titles with woodcut sphere device later gilt ruled red morocco (rubbed particularly to joints and corners), marbled endpapers, all edges gilt, 12mo (13x7cm). La Rettorica delle puttane ("The Rhetoric of Whores"), first published in Geneva in 1642, and written in the form of a dialogue between an aged prostitute and her naive apprentice, was the work which finally sealed the fate of the satyrist and anti-Jesuit Pallavicino. Forced to flee Venice for Bergamo, he managed to complete his other best-known work, Il Divortio celeste, before being persuaded by a papal spy that he should go to France to take up a spurious position being offered by Cardinal Richelieu. As he crossed the papal territory near Avignon, he was betrayed to the authorities and spent fourteen months in prison before being beheaded. N° de réf. du vendeur 10186

Description de l'article : Lugduni Batavorum Leiden: Ex officina Bonaventuræ & Abrahami Elzevir., 1626. FIRST EDITION. 8vo, 3 parts in 1, separate title, pp. [24], 194, [22]; [4], 536, [32]; [4], 519, [25]. Small repair to outer blank margin of title, first and last couple of leaves lightly browned and a little soiled at margins, upper edge dusty, occasional slight yellowing, first G gathering browned, a few tears (paper flaws) towards outer blank margins. Contemporary vellum, yapp edges, old gilt-lettered label, upper hinge starting, edges a bit dusty, two small bite marks to lower cover. Modern bookplate of Robert J. Hayhurst to front pastedown. A very good copy of the first edition of this monumental scholarly work on ancient Greece. Its author, Ubbo Emmius Frisius (1547-1625), was professor of Greek language and history at Groningen; he died shortly before the publication of this edition, complaining, till the day before his death, that his publishers had refused to print it in-folio. The Elzevirs were probably thinking, in more commercial terms, of producing a portable reference work for the university market. The first part provides a description of the regions, history and customs of the ancient Greeks; the second and third are a scholarly tour de force, hundreds of pages long, on Greek history. Emmius's work was held in great esteem by Gronovius, who reprinted it in vol.4 of his 'Thesaurus Graecarum antiquitatum'. Willems 252. N° de réf. du vendeur 53649
