He had earlier published Entretiens sur Les Vies et sur Les Ouvrages des plus excellentes Peintres Ancien et Modernes (1666 - 1668), as well as Conferences de l'Academie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture (translated into English in 1740) and Origine de la Peinture (1660). The first part of the book, consisting of three chapters of unequal length, cover the principles of architecture, sculpture, and painting, while the second part is a dictionary of the correct terms to be used in those subjects, as well as other arts which depend on them.

Description du livre : Printed by E. A. and W. I. for Michael Sparke, London, 1633. 198 x 140 mm. (7 3/4 x 5 1/2"). 17 p.l., 512 pp., 513-568 leaves, 545-582, [2] blank, 831-1,006 pp., [20] leaves (obviously erratic numbering, but complete). FIRST EDITION, Second Issue, as virtually always (with "Errataes" on ***4v). Contemporary sprinkled calf, recently resewn and rebacked by Courtland Benson. Pforzheimer III, 809; STC 20464; Brunet IV, 618; Graesse V, 468. First few leaves with faint, inoffensive stain at lower inner margin, otherwise QUITE A FINE COPY, with only trivial imperfections--the expertly restored binding unworn, and the text consistently fresh, almost entirely clean, and with ample margins. The Puritan divine William Prynne (1600-69) loosed his moral lightning upon the theater of his time in the present diatribe, a work that could not have been more unrestrained nor more ill-timed. This was no precision ideological sortie, but an unbridled surfeit of castigation. In the words of the Norton Anthology of English Literature, "in this passionate . . . tirade of over 1,000 pages larded with authorities in the text and margins--classical philosophers, Church Fathers, Protestant theologians--Prynne denounced stage plays, cross-dressed male actors, court masques, mixed dancing in masques and everywhere else, maypoles, wakes and other rural festivals, country sports on the sabbath, Laudian ritual, stained-glass windows and much more, staking out the most extreme Puritan position on traditional recreations at court and in the countryside." Prynne was also outraged by the favor shown to Shakespeare by printers, ranting, "Shackpeers Plaies are printed in the best Crowne paper, far better than most Bibles." The book would have attracted much less attention if it hadn't contained a number of stories of rulers and magistrates whose support of, or participation in, theatrical productions seemed to bring about their demise. It happened that Charles and his queen, Henrietta Maria, often danced in court masques, and Prynne's allusions to "scurrilous amorous pastorals" and to female actors as "notorious whores" struck way too close to the royal home. As a consequence, our author was imprisoned for life, eventually stripped of his academic credentials, disbarred, fined £5,000, placed in the pillory at Westminster and Cheapside, forced to watch his books being publicly burned (the first English books to go up in flames this way), and relieved of a portion of his ears. (This was before freedom of the press.) Like its author, this item (unlike the present copy) is almost always found in wretched condition.

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; a few preliminary margins well renewed with old paper, but a good sound copy in recent vellum over boards, endpapers renewed. 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. Intermittent water-staining, some gatherings a little stained, a few small marginal defects.

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,

Description du livre : par la Compagnie des Libraires, Paris, 1697. 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 : Ciacone, Roma, 1610. In-folio; pp. (16), 774, (68), l'ultima carta bianca; frontespizio illustrato, siglato CL, con stemma cardinalizio del dedicatario, S. Gregorio, S. Agostino, la Fede e la Religione, e 1 tavola incisa su rame che raffigura l'esaltazione della Croce. Nel testo numerosi legni. Inoltre, testatine, finalini e capilettera incisi su legno.Legatura in piena pergamena. Dorso con rari fori di tarlo.Il Trattato dell Croce di Bosio è una rara quanto interessante opera di carattere storico e iconografico attorno al significato della Croce nella religione cristiana, e in particolare nel mistero della passione, croce e morte di Cristo.L'opera è divisa in sei libri, nei quali il simbolo della croce viene individuato nelle diverse civiltà, presso le quali di volta in volta si ritrova in una diversa maniera e con un diverso significato, così ad esempio presso i greci e i latini, ripercorrendo nel primo libro la storia, basata su varie fonti, della crocifissione e degli altri martiri di Cristo; nel secondo libro la ricerca da adito a curiosi spunti, quando l'autore ritrova il segno della croce in animali, piante e nelle creature di dio; il terzo libro ricerca I passi dell'antico testamento in cui si parla della croce, e il successivo le profezie, gli oracoli e i vaticini inerenti a questa. Il quinto libro è decisamente il più singolare e interessante Nell'ultimo si tratta della passione, morte e resurrezione, del primigenio uso che i cristiani fecero della croce, nella primitiva chiesa e nei secoli successivi.L'apparato iconografico è particolamente variegato ed esaustivo rispetto alla materia trattata: l'iscrizione sulla tavoletta apposta in cima alla croce, i chiodi, le stelle, la figura umana con le braccia allargate, animali meravigliosi come l'unicorno e una strana tartaruga, i fiori della passione, la postura delle mani per la benedizione, monete e medaglie, la Fortuna, la croce raffigurata nel mosaico di San Clemente e San Giovanni a Roma, ecc. Soprattutto è molto ricca di immagini la sezione che riguarda l'Egitto, con riproduzioni di geroglifici e pitture di opere evidentemente giunte in Italia, e che l'autore potè studiare e far ritrarre.Copioso l'indice degli argomenti trattati.croce cross cavalieri di malta religione cristiana passione cristo crocifissione christ crucifixion egitto egypt egyptian art hieroglyphic geroglifici.

Description du livre : Sermartelli, Firenze, 1604. Ediz. orig. In-4°; pp. 7, (1), al frontespizio un legno raffigura la cupola di Santa Maria del Fiore a Firenze; un capolettera inciso su legno, alcune note manoscritte.Legatura in cartonato colorato. L'opera è dedicata a Filippo Valori, l'ambasciatore fiorentino del papa.Edizione originale, assai rara.L'opuscolo di Franscesco Bocchi prende spunto dall'episodio di un fulmine abbattutosi sulla cupola di Santa Maria del Fiore a Firenze, per indirizzare il suo racconto sul tema del restauro di quello che era considerato il manufatto simbolo della città. Sebbene pubblicato solo nel 1604 la lettera è datata in calce Firenze Febbraio 1600, subito dopo che la lanterna era stata danneggiata. Il restauro di quella fu affidato a Gherardo Mechini, che lo completò in un tempo assai breve; utilizzò un complesso sistema di ponteggi e dispositivi di sollevamento.In un contesto di generale esaltazione della storia dell'arte fiorentina, in queste pagine si leggono parole di estrema lode per la bellezza e lo splendore della cupola e della lanterna, un'opera di altissimo ingegno la cui maestà suscita in chi la guarda "primo laetitia, deinde, cum appropinquant, admiratio, postremo stupor". L'esaltazione si estende ovviamente all'artefice, Filippo Brunelleschi, che, si dice, esprime la razionalità nell'arte attraverso l'esempio degli antichi. A sostegno di una teoria che esalta le origini del rinascimento fiorentino, Bocchi sembra chiamare in causa anche Michelangelo Buonarroti "iure optimo" che, accingendosi alla costruzione della cupola del Sacrario Laurenziano, afferma, rispondendo a chi glielo chiedeva, che nessun architetto aveva fatto di meglio dopo l'artificio di Filippo.Francesco Bocchi (1548-1618) fu un erudito italiano che, soggiornando a Firenze, scrisse una guida delle bellezze della città di Firenze, e fu autore anche di un'opera sulla musica e di una sulla statua di San Giorgio di Donatello. (Vedi voce in DBI).Filippo Brunelleschi (1377-1446), architetto, ingegnere escultore fiorentino, attende ai lavori della cupola del Duomo di Firenze a partire dal 1418 e fino alla sua morte, al principio offrendo la sua consulenza per risolvere la soluzione della costruzione della cupola assieme al Ghiberti e a Battista d'Antonio, in qualità di "provveditore alla costruzione della cupola". La cupola presentava un tamburo ottagono che insisteva su una struttura gotica, il cui sistema di forze Brunelleschi volle coordinare e risolvere, attraverso la cupola, nella lanterna che la chiude.

There are clear typographical differences between the second part and the other two parts of this pamphlet. Taken the contents, it is quite obvious that they belong together, however, as the second part (pp. 57-76) deals only with Mr. Scott and Mr. Scroop while their speeches and prayers are not repeated, partly or in whole, in the other two parts, we are unable to conclude whether we are dealing here with the same pamphlet in another variant or with a quite different pamphlet. Collation is as follows: last signature part 1: H1,2,(H3,4), signatures part 2: H1,2,(H3,4), I1,2,(I3,4), K1,2 after which part 3 starts with: L1,2,(L3,4). 10) The Last Speech Of Col.

Description du livre : Michel Brunet, 1698. Hardcover. État : Very Good. 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

GREAT WORK ON CRYPTOGRAPHY BY ATHANASIUS KIRCHER'S ASSISTANT. First edition of this early work on cryptography and ciphers, and more specifically secret writing. 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 fallas 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)." â€" 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.

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 ."

Er fertigte zahlreiche Zeichnungen nach der Antike an, die gestochen und zu Büchern zusammengefasst wurden, deren Text häufig von dem Antiquar Giovanni Pietro Bellori (1613-1693) verfasst wurde. Er publizierte Werke etwa zu antiken Reliefs (Trajanssäule, Marc-Aurel-Säule, zur römischen Malerei, die er in einer Art Corpus vorlegen wollte, zu antiken Gräbern, zu Porträts, Gemmen und Lampen. Bartolis Stichwerke dienten der weiten Verbreitung der Kenntnis der antiken Denkmäler Roms und bilden für zahlreiche Objekte, die nicht mehr im Original erhalten sind, heute eine Primärquelle, z.B. die Malereien des Nasoniergrabs. Bartoli gehörte zu einem Kreis von Antiquaren, Künstlern und Kunst- und Antikenliebhabern im Rom des 17. Jahrhunderts, zu denen unter anderem Poussin, Giovanni Pietro Bellori, Cassiano dal Pozzo und Carlo Antonio dal Pozzo sowie die Kardinäle Francesco Barberini und Camillo Massimo gehörten. Nach dem Tode Belloris hatte Bartoli von 1696 bis zu seinem Tode das Amt des Aufsehers der Antiken im Kirchenstaat inne, des Commissario delle Antichità. Ebenso war er als Nachfolger Belloris Antiquar der Königin Christina von Schweden, deren umfangreiche Sammlungen er betreute und teilweise publizierte. (Zitat). N° de réf. du libraire 16483AB

Description du livre : 1623. Hardcover. État : Very Good. "CONVENT OF THE BAREFOOT ROYALS- A CENTER OF THE SPANISH RENAISSANCE" [MANUSCRIPT] España-Alegaciones en derecho. Mitia, Juana (lit.). Por quanto la serenissima princesa de Portugal doña Juana Mitia, que aya gloria, fundo el monasterio con su iglesia de nuestra señora de la consolacion, que dizen de las descalças, en la villa de Madrid, de la primera regla de santa Clara de Viril observancia, por el año passado de mil y quinientos y cinquenta y quatro, y desde entonces todo el tiempo que vivio, hasta que mun'o el año de mil y quinientos y setenta y tres que se enterro, en el, tuvo gran cuenta y cuydado de socorrer al dicho monasterio con sus Iimosnas, teniendole principalmente de lo que toca al culto divino, para que se celebrasse con mayor devocion, religion, decencia, y autoridad, y que la iglesia del dicho monasterio fuesse mejor servida. S.l., s.n., [1623]. LARGE FOLIO, 38 x 28 cm., [1 blank], 63 lvs. (i.e. 126 pgs), [ 4 lvs index] Vellum Binding with ties. The magnificent indigo-dyed patterned paper endpapers and paste-downs appear integral to the book, though could conceivably have been added at a somewhat later date. Regardless, they represent some of the earliest and most attractive examples of their type. Wilkinson and Lorenzo in Libros Ibéricos Volúmenes II y III notes two other copies of this manuscript in the National Historical Archive in Madrid and the Convent of Las Descalzas Reales. This 17th century manuscript is, as stated on its cover, a fair copy of the administrative regulations and rules of the Convent of Our Lady of Consolation (Nuestra Señora de la Consolación) for the nuns of the order of Poor Clares. The Convent was founded by Joanna of Austria (1535 – 1573), the mother of Sebastian of Portugal, and later regent of Spain for her brother, Philip II of Spain. It was also known as "Discalced Clarisses (in Spanish, clarisas descalzas) because they did not wear covered shoes, and only walked either barefoot or in sandals, now known as the Convent of Las Descalzas Reales, or convent of the barefoot royals, partly due to her affiliation." Windowed and spinster noblewoman with hefty dowries were drawn to the service of the Convent and it quickly became one of the wealthiest in Europe. "Tomás Luis de Victoria, Spain's finest Renaissance composer, worked at the convent from 1587 to the end of his life in 1611." and "among the priceless art masterpieces are Titian's Caesar's Money, tapestries woven to designs by Rubens, and works by Hans de Beken and Brueghel the Elder."

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 : 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
