[Bound with:] KEPLER, Johannes. Dissertatio cum Nuncio Sidereo nuper ad mortales misso a Galilaeo Galilaeo mis en vente par SOPHIA RARE BOOKS

    SECOND EDITION OF GALILEO'S SIDEREUS NUNCIUS - EXTREMELY RARE COPY COMPLETE WITH THE WHITE ON BLACK PLATES. Second edition of Galileo's magnum opus, published just a few months after the original printing at Venice on March 10, 1610. "Galileo's book created excitement throughout Europe and a second edition was published in the same year at Frankfurt" (DSB). This edition of Sidereus nuncius is the first publication of any of Galileo's works outside Italy; it is rarer than the Venice edition, and exceptionally rare when complete with the plates, as here. These plates inaugurated the tradition of white-on-black woodcut illustration which makes such an effective medium for the depiction of stars as points of light against a black sky (the stars in the first edition were depicted as black against a blank page); the Frankfurt star maps were the source for the illustrations in most of the later editions of the Sidereus nuncius, and in many lunar handbooks even today. "Galileo's 'Starry Messenger' contains some of the most important discoveries in scientific literature. Learning in the summer of 1609 that a device for making distant objects seem close and magnified had been brought to Venice from Holland, Galileo soon constructed a spy-glass of his own which he demonstrated to the notables of the Venetian Republic, thus earning a large increase in his salary as professor of mathematics at Padua. Within a few months he had a good telescope, magnifying to 30 diameters, and was in full flood of astronomical observation. Through his telescope Galileo saw the moon as a spherical, solid, mountainous body very like the earth - quite different from the crystalline sphere of conventional philosophy. He saw numberless stars hidden from the naked eye in the constellations and the Milky Way. Above all, he discovered four new 'planets', the satellites of Jupiter that he called (in honor of his patrons at Florence) the Medicean stars. Thus Galileo initiated modern observational astronomy and announced himself as a Copernican" (PMM). Bound here with the Galileo is the pirate edition, issued by the same publisher, of Kepler's response to the publication of Sidereus nuncius, written in the form of an open letter to Galileo. Kepler received a copy of Sidereus nuncius from Galileo on April 8, 1610 and his pamphlet, 'Conversation with the Starry Messenger,' was published at Prague in May, and shortly after at Florence; this Frankfurt edition is its third appearance. Kepler accepted Galileo's new observations with enthusiasm, and his work helped Galileo to persuade some of his critics in Italy. Kepler "also reminded his readers of the earlier history of the telescope, his own work on optics, his ideas on the regular solids and on possible inhabitants of the moon, and his arguments against an infinite universe. A few months later, in the second of the only three known letters that Galileo wrote directly to Kepler, the Italian astronomer stated, 'I thank you because you were the first one, and practically the only one, to have complete faith in my assertions'" (DSB, under Kepler). Only one other copy of the Frankfurt printing of Sidereus nuncius complete with the plates has appeared at auction since the Signet Library sale in 1960 (Sotheby's New York, December 11, 2009, lot 24, $122,500), and the plates are lacking in many institutional copies. The only copy of the Frankfurt printing of Kepler's Dissertatio listed on ABPC/RBH is one offered by Goldschmidt in 1965 (bound with a copy of the Frankfurt printing of Sidereus nuncius without the plates). OCLC lists, in the US, Yale only for the Galileo (two copies, one with the plates, one without), and Princeton only for the Kepler; there is also a copy of the Galileo at Linda Hall. Provenance: Louis Godin (1704-60), French astronomer (manuscript ex-libris on verso of front free endpaper and ex dono dated 1730 on title); Jean-Paul Grandjean de Fouchy (1707-1788), French astronomer (signature 'Grandjean' on title); 'Dom Salons Berselens' (ink stamp on recto of front free endpaper); Jesuit library of the École Sainte-Geneviève (ink stamp on title); Jesuit Library at Chantilly (ink stamp on title); sold Christie's, Paris, April 21, 2010, lot 29, â 68,200. "Galileo's researches in astronomy were more than original, they were unprecedented. He was not an astronomer in the sense of Copernicus, Tycho, and Kepler, making observations, devising models, and deriving parameters in order to compute tables and ephemerides for finding the positions of the Sun, Moon, and planets. Nor did he search for the physical principles governing the motions of the heavens as Kepler and later Newton did. Most of his work was concerned with two issues, the refutation of the Aristotelian and the defense of the Copernican 'System of the World' and his originality lies not so much in what he found as in how he interpreted his discoveries. Even his discoveries with the telescope, as interesting as they are in themselves - and it is hard to think of more surprising discoveries in the entire history of science - are of still greater interest for the conclusions that he drew from them, for nearly all of them could be turned to the criticism of Aristotle and the defense of Copernicus . "In late 1608 Galileo's friend Paolo Sarpi heard a rumor of an optical device, recently invented in the Netherlands, that made distant objects appear close, and by May of 1609 he must have alerted Galileo. It was not hard to make one of these things using spectacle lenses, a plano-convex lens as an objective and a plano-concave lens as an eyepiece. When placed in a tube, the result is a 'spyglass' giving an upright image of 3x or 4x magnification. Galileo did this much, and since he wanted something better, he learned to grind and polish lenses, and by August had made an instrument of 8x or 9x. He called it a perspicillum, and he arranged through Sarpi a demonstration for the Venetian Senate, on whom its naval application for.

    First edition of the major work of the famous Scottish financial adventurer John Law (1671-1729), which presents his theories on the establishment of paper note-issuing national banks. The title exists in two states: one with an ornament of an eagle and vines, the present with a coastline and its reflection. Textually they are all the same. Of the few copies we have handled in the past, all had the eagle-and-vine ornament. "Like other 18th-century writers Law adopted a disequilibrium theory of money, viewing it as a stimulant to trade. In a state of unemployment, Law maintained that an increase in the nation's money supply would stimulate employment and output without raising prices since the demand for money would rise with the increase in output. Moreover, once full employment was attained the monetary expansion would attract factors of production from abroad, so output would continue to increase" (The New Palgrave III, p. 143). Law put this theory into practice with the establishment of the Banque Générale in Paris in 1716 and then again with the Compagnie d'Occident, established a year later. Although both ventures were immediately successful - leading to his appointment as France's Finance Minister in 1720 - the speculative mania which they prompted eventually caused the bubble to burst; by December 1720, Law's banking system had collapsed, with disastrous repercussions for France's economy and society. Bound up with Money and Trade considered are these additional texts: i) [ARMOUR, James.] Proposals For Restoring Credit; For Making the Bank of England More Useful and Profitable; For Relieving the Sufferers of the South-Sea Company; for the Benefit of that of the East-India; And for Raising the Value of the Land-Interest of Great Britain.

    [GIGAULT DE LA SALLE, Achille Etienne (1772-1855)]. Voyage Pittoresque en Sicile. Paris: P. Didot, l'Aine, & Jules Didot Ainé, 1822-1826. 2 volumes. Folio (26 4/8 x 19 4/8 inches).

Signet Library of the Society of Writers on each paste-down covered by their later bookplate. AN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE, LARGE PAPER COPY OF THIS RARE BOOK WITH MAGNIFICENT HAND-COLORED VIEWS OF SICILY, a large and untrimmed copy. One of only 500 copies printed in all, originally published in 24 parts, this example includes the very rare second physical map of Sicily, not called for in the printed plate list but present here as well as in the Abbey copy and the dedication copy. The SUPERB plates are mostly the work of an unusually large number of English engravers who are responsible for 43 of the 92 plates, which bring to life the extraordinary beauty of the largest island in the Mediterranean separated from the Italian mainland by the Strait of Messina, and include dramatic images of the northern chain of mountains, from Messina to Marsala; the undulating plain that stretches to the Ionian and Mediterranean Seas; the majestic volcano Etna, the rich pastures, vineyards, gardens, arable lands, and forests of her slopes; the river Giarretta that falls into the sea near Catania, and the Anopo, that empties into the sea near Syracuse; the two principal lakes of Lentini and Pergusa; the important and ancient harbours of Messina and Palermo. Sicily has a long and ancient history, but at the time of the publication of this book the island was a destination for the European on the Grand Tour, as it emerged from a period of political instability: "in 1713, by the Peace of Utrecht, Victor Amadeus II was made King of Sicily, and the Sicilians were contented with independence. But in 1718 war broke out again; Victor Amadeus had to abandon Sicily and Sardinia, and the former was given to Austria. In 1736 it was again united to Naples. The reign of the Bourbons was certainly advantageous to the island. During the Parthenopean Republic (1798), and the reign of Joseph Bonaparte and Murat (1806-15), Sicily was the asylum of the royal family, and was protected by the British fleet. At that time (1812) the island had a Constitution like the English Constitution. But, on being restored to the Throne of Naples, Ferdinand IV revoked the Constitution, which indeed had not been very acceptable to the people; he also put an end to the Parliament and all the laws and privileges of the Sicilians, and the island was thus put on the same footing as all the other provinces of the kingdom (Organic Laws of 1817). This caused great discontent in Sicily. "When the Revolution of 1820 broke out at Naples, the Sicilians expected to obtain their independence; they received an evasive answer which diminished their h.

    Original book dummy. Original book dummy. Designed and illustrated by Uriel Kahana. Cover design attributed to El Lissitzky. Illustrations and text-bands (the earlier typewritten ones overlaid by print-proofs) are mounted on the pages. With corrections, notes and other signs in black and red pencil. Together with two red-and-black proofs of the front cover design. With ten extra copies of illustrations (clipped), and one leaf with proofs of the signet of Tsil Tslil (the series of the publisher, in which the book appeared). The last leaf of the printed book is omitted from the dummy. 18 p. Book dummy for the Hebrew children's book, the Four Billy Goats, illustrated by Uriel Kahana, the cover design is attributed to El Lissitzky. This book dummy of Arba'ah Teyashim, the Four Billy Goats (published by Tarbut, Warsaw, 1922) was created by Uriel Kahana the illustrator and typographer of the book. The drawings are identical to the printed version, the text arrangement slightly differs from it. The illustrations are reminiscent of Chagall's and Ryback's works, and also Lissitzky's drawings for his renowned books Had Gadya (1919) and Yingl tsingl khvat (1922), or the 1919 Der Ber whose text was also written by Benzion Raskin. Twenty mounted illustrations, animals and city landscapes are presented in the maquette. The signet and a smaller city landscape from the printed book's title and last pages are presented separately, together with extra copies of eight of the illustrations. The collection includes a sheet with five print proofs of the signet of Tarbut's book series "Tsil Tslil", which was also designed by Kahana. The cover of the publication (two proofs of it included), an arrangement of Hebrew letters as architectural elements in a dynamic design, printed in red and black, is attributed to El Lissitzky and it mirrors his contemporary Proun typography. One of the earliest works of Uriel Kahana (1903-1965) the Ukrainian-born Jewish graphic artist, and architect. Kahana, after receiving a traditional Jewish education, studied art, architecture, and design. His family moved to Warsaw in the early 1920s, where Uriel joined the association of the local Jewish graphic artists. While in Warsaw, through Tarbut, a network and movement of secular, Zionist, Hebrew-language educational institutions in Poland, he got a commission to design the present children's book. From the mid-1920s until 1933 Kahana studied architecture in Rome, Prague, and London. After some years working in the UK, he settled down in Palestine and started to work at Erich Mendelsohn's office in Jerusalem, and in 1938 he opened his own architect's office in Tel Aviv. As an architect, he worked throughout Europe as well as in Palestine, and he also remained active as a graphic artist. Kahana died in Tel Aviv in 1965. The Lissitzky-attributed cover design is included in the collections of MoMA and the Getty Research Institute and referred to it - besides many later art historians - by Jan Tschichold in his 1932 article on Lissitzky (in Imprimatur III, p. 112). Ref.: MoMA 563.1977; Getty Russian Modernism 452 Bibl.: Tschichold, J.: Über El Lissitzky. In: Imprimatur III. Ein Jahrbuch für Bücherfreunde.

Leaves are chipped at edges. Paper yellowed due to aging. Slightly dusted and stained because of the glue used to paste the illustrations and the text-bands. Overall in good condition. Designed and illustrated by Uriel Kahana. Cover design attributed to El Lissitzky. Illustrations and text-bands (the earlier typewritten ones overlaid by print-proofs) are mounted on the pages.

    Hardcover. Etat : Sehr gut. Folio. VI, CLXXIIII leaves. With - repetitions included -36 text woodcuts (one nearly full-page) all surrounded by a varying border (partly decorated with coats of arms), some "lettres fleuries" initials by G. Tory (cf. Mortimer ) and few "Crible " initials. Woodcut printer's device. A magnificent, signed heraldic binding by the famous Paris bookbinder Gruel from the last quarter of the 19th century in an excellent state of preservation, with polychromatic Moroccan ribbon marquetry, abundant gilding of spine, cover, bottom and inside edges as well as gold-embossed spine title; three-side gilt-edging. In a later shift (broad spine of brown, napped leather with gold-embossed spine title [thumbed, somewhat faded], cover done in marbled paper, suede-lined [the lining slightly stained] and in a half-leather slip case with identical cover (slightly thumbed, edges somewhat flattened). First edition of Sevin s translation. Denis Janot organized this edition under his own name and for various Paris bookshops (cf. the corresponding entry in the Ind. Aurel. ), whose own signets and sales notes were then imprinted. Thus our specimen bears the Corrozet-signet on the title page (v. Renou ard 206) and the note : "On les vend à Paris en la grand Salle du Pa1ais du costé de 1a chapelle de messieurs, en 1a boutique de Gilles Corrozet Libraire." This signet makes the book - which is extremely rare anyhow - a top rarity , not accounted for in the relevant bibliographies / catalogues. The woodcuts derive from Janot's edition of the first books of "Amadis de Gaula" of 1540 (cf. Brun and Mortimer), but partly they were made earlier (thus one border is dated "1520"). The borders frequently bear foliage ornaments, and a whole series of them sows grotesque faces and heraldic shields. Brun writes about the "Amadis" woodcuts as a whole: « L'Amadis des Gaules dont le premier livre parut en 1540, est orné de vignettes qui offrent au lecteur une suite de charmant petits tableaux. Certaines sont d'un dessin si parfait et d'une taille si adroite qu'on ne peut s'empêcher de songer aux gravures de Lüt zelburger d'après Holbein. Ici, le style, les proportions des personnages, les physiono mies, tout enfin est différent et accuse la main d'un artiste français, mais la mâitrise est presque égale » (p.68), and generally on Janot's and Corrozet's importance (p.64 / 65) : « Ce fut le role de trois imprimeurs, Denis Janot, Etienne Groulleau et Gilles Corrozet, de répandre a profusion, sous un format commode, de petits textes classiques ou des livrets abondamment illustrés. Leurs vignettes élégantes et spirituelles, transmises ou copiées d'atelier en atelier, interprétées par les ciseleurs, les peintres verriers, les émailleurs et les fayenciers, contribuèrent pour une grande part a fixer les nouvelles formules décorati ves. ». The lavishly equipped Moroccan leather binding bears in the middle of both covers the coat of arms of Henri IV (1553 -1610) in an oval cartouche with the French heraldic shield (on a blue background) and that of Navarre (on red) together with three crowns: the two small ones representing France and Navarre, and the big one symbolizing the union (v. J. Guigard, Nouvelle Armorial du Bibliophile. Paris 1890. p. 20). The heraldic shields and the small crowns are enclosed by delicate foliage. Crown as well as tendrils are gold-embossed, the colours of the escutcheons are subtly repeated in the big crown. The coats of arms are surrounded by a network of partly geometrical, partly floral and ornamental polychromatic ribbons (in beige, brown, ruby and red) end ing at top and bottom in a bigger grotesque, and below four corner vignettes in a smaller one each (in beige the bigger, in brown the smaller ones). The fields between the stripes are gold-em bossed with "Crible" dots. The cover decor is predominantly worked in leather mar quetry . This binding in mock-historical style follows the tradition of "reliure adaptée au texte", a speciality of the Gruel.

    Writing from Calais and styling himself "king of ffraunce and of England and lord of Ireland", Henry shows a characteristically keen concern with money. Henry had been in Calais since October, besieging Boulogne and on 3 November at Étaples obtaining peace with the French king Charles VIII on reasonable terms - a generous annual payment in compensation for his expenses in the Breton war, a French promise to expel Perkin Warbeck and his supporters, and French pensions for eight of his councillors. But financial matters in England were still preoccupying Henry. The king lays charges of fraud and what we would call creative accounting against "diverse abbeyes priouris collegies parish churches chapelles Gildes and Chauntries Within our counties of Warwik Northampton and Worcester. diverse of the said landes rentes and Ten[emen]tes bee put in feoffement for the Use and behove of the said places and the ministres of the same BY COLOURABLE WAYES OF AMORTISEMENT Without oure sp[ec]ial auctorite or licence therupon obteigned in defraude and abusion of Us." Because "We ne Wol ner may suffre to bee soo Usurpantly touched", Henry authorises John Meautis [Mewtas], "our Secretary for the frenshe tong", and John Wylde and Benet Medley, clerks of the signet, to investigate the matter and seize lands in the king's name. "For theffectuel execucion of the premisses as for the faithful s[er]vices doon Unto Us by our s[er]vantes beforenamed in our great Voiage into the parties of fraunce", Henry informs the sheriffs, escheators, bailiffs, constables, and other officers to whom the letter is generally addressed that he has granted £20 a year to Meautis, Wylde, and Medley out of the receipts of their work. John Mewtas, a native of Normandy, had come to England with Henry in 1484. He served as French secretary to both Henry VII and Henry VIII between 1491 and 1522. His grandson Sir Peter Mewtas (d. 1562) was one of the English dignitaries greeting Anne of Cleves at Calais in 1540; he served as an emissary to Henry VIII, Edward VI, and Elizabeth I. The king's gift to his loyal French secretary cannily combined a personal reward for Mewtas's services on campaign with a relentless drive to maximize royal income. Oblong folio, 1pp, vellum leaf, initialled at head "HR", greater part of Royal Signet seal, two small holes. Mounted on a red velvet ground, glazed, and framed.

    First impression, printed on vellum, of this meticulously engraved facsimile of the Magna Carta, "a sacred text, the nearest approach to an irrepealable "fundamental statute" that England has ever had" (Pollock and Maitland, History of English Law, I, p.173). The work of the John Pine (1690-1756) engraver, publisher, print- and mapseller, Bluemantle Pursuivant at the College of Arms, and Engraver to the King's Signet and Stamp Office, this facsimile was made from one of the Cottonian library copies and heraldically embellished by him with the arms of the rebellious barons. Perhaps the most-celebrated legal document of the English-speaking world, Churchill declaring of it; "Here is a law which is above the King and which even he must not break. This reaffirmation of a supreme law and its expression in a general charter is the great work of Magna Carta; and this alone justifies the respect in which men have held it" (History of the English-speaking Peoples, I, p. 257). Lowndes 1449-50. Engraved facsimile printed on vellum (700 x 480 mm), central panel of text surrounded by the 25 coats-of-arms of the Barons, hand-coloured, and a similar representation of the remains of King John's Great Seal, all panels enclosed by hand-coloured oak leaf and acorn borders. Professionally framed in black wooden frame with conservation acrylic glazing. Somewhat browned and a little mottled, evidence of light creases from having been at some time folded over twice, pigments a little oxidised and smudged in places as often, small pinholes to the margins as usual, but overall very good.

    Levanto's rare pilot of the Mediterranean First edition. Folio (416 by 280mm) engraved title, 25 engraved charts, 24 of which were double page, numerous woodcut illustrations and coastal profiles in text, title discoloured at fore-edge with a few manuscript annotations, bookplate to front paste-down, recent vellum, red morocco title slip to spine. The first and only edition of Levanto's rare pilot of the Mediterranean published in Genoa. Levanto's atlas is a close copy of the Mediterranean section of Pieter Goos's 'Zee-spiegel' of 1662. The text on the charts was translated into Italian from Dutch, and they are numbered from one to 25 at the lower right corners. The striking title-page, a mirror image of Goos' work, comprises a cartouche for the title and dedication to Giovanni Battista della Rovere surmounted by an allegory of Geography. On either side of the title page navigational instruments are arrayed and a naval battle scene is revealed behind a pair of curtains held aloft by putti. The title-page and charts would later be reused by Coronelli for the southern Italian section of his 'Atlante Veneto', in 1698. Francesco Maria Levanto was a Genoese ship captain and cartographer. His maritime experience shows in the style of his maps, which are influenced by portolans, with compass roses, rhumb lines, and place names along the coastline. 1.

Deuxième édition incunable de deux sermonnaires du théologien hongrois Pelbartus de Themeswar (c.1435-1504) imprimés à Haguenau en Alsace. Les Sermones Pomerii de tempore et les Sermones Pomerii quadragesimales sont sortis une première fois des presses d'Henri Gran respectivement en 1498 et 1499. L'exemplaire des quadragesimales, comme ceux du British Museum et de Polain, est conforme au second tirage des 38 premiers feuillets décrit par Hain. Dès le XVe siècle, Haguenau s?impose comme le deuxième foyer, après Strasbourg, de diffusion de l?imprimerie en Alsace. Elle y fut introduite en 1489 par Henri Gran ; de 1501 à 1527, celui-ci publie encore 213 ouvrages ; sa production est essentiellement théologique ; on y relève, par exemple, 45 éditions de Pelbartus de Themeswar. Henri Gran, est bien vite rejoint par d?autres comme Thomas Anshelm, Pierre Brubach, Guillaume Seltz et Jean Rynman. Bien avant Colmar et Mulhouse, la cité développe une activité florissante, conjugaison de deux opportunités.

The collection is still intact and has not been 'robbed' of its outstanding and often signed publications.

From hard-boiled detective stories to alien invasions, from femme fatales to teenage angst, from swashbuckling buccaneers to gritty westerns, these books were collected for two reasons; their excellent condition, and their lurid, 'one of a kind' cover art and outrageous tag lines.

    Oblong 4to (222 x 172 mm). 1 blank leaf, 50 unnumbered written pages, 2 blank leaves. German manuscript (dark brown ink) on paper, fine calligraphy by a single scribal hand (titles and headlines in blackletter, text in cursive script). Later limp vellum wrappers, spine reinforced with a fragment of a 15th century vellum manuscript with red and blue rubrication. Stored in a modern custom-made half morocco case. Calligraphically appealing 16th century manuscript on the art and terminology of hunting and falconry, written by a professional scribe for an unidentified sponsor, though likely for a highly placed personage or member of the nobility in South-Western Germany. The manuscript contains contemporary extracts from the end of the third part of Noe Meurer's "Von Forstlicher Oberherrlichkeit und Gerechtigkeit", an important study of hunting first published in Pforzheim by Georg Rab in 1560, and then, in expanded form, in Frankfurt, by Georg Rab & Weigand Han, in 1561. Meurer (born ca. 1525 in Memmingen in Southern Swabia, died in Heidelberg in 1583) was one the first German legal scholars to write in his native tongue rather than in Latin; among his works are treatises on the law of inheritance and of water. In particular, he was the first German author to publish monographs on the subjects of forestry and hunting, not as mere chapters within the larger framework of agriculture, for which reason he was of great importance for the study of forestry in the 16th century. The present extracts comprise the only parts of Meurer's book concerned with the practical, technical aspects of hunting, rather than with its legal foundations. They include sections on hounds, canned and net hunting, the hunting of stags, roes, boars, foxes, rabbits, bears, wolves, ibexes and chamois, as well as a section on how to tell a deer from a roe when viewing the animal from the rear. The final part is dedicated to hunting with falcons and hawks. The entire section on deer ("Die Hürsch zu suchen, wie auch der Hürsch für der Hinndin zue erkennen etc.") is not part of the first edition of Meurer's book, suggesting that the scribe based his work on the second edition of 1561 (leaves LXXXIIII verso to XCVII verso). Yet the order of the individual sections does not follow the published book in all particulars, and the present arrangement would seem to reflect the scribal editor's or the sponsor's private considerations. - The paper stock for this manuscript is from a paper mill in Meurer's native Memmingen (watermark: Gothic letter "P" - or more likely "Q" - with the arms of Memmingen: Briquet III, no. 8750 and p. 468; cf. Briquet I, p. 72; specimens dating from the late 1580s to 1590s). - Very well preserved and legible, untrimmed manuscript from the collection of the Swiss-born German merchant and entrepreneur Hans Dedi (1918-2016), chairman of the "Quelle" mail order concern and the Schickedanz business group, with his bookplate in the marbled solander case and his gilt signet on the spine. Cf. VD 16, M 5017.

    Half-Leather. Etat : Good+. Etat de la jaquette : None. DAVID DEUCHAR (illustrateur). HERALDIC CREST MANUSCRIPT. Large, thick Folio, late 18th century marbled boards and 1/2 sheep, crack to spine and partial unhinging of front board, age worn but otherwise well-preserved. A handsome and imposing manuscript of 1000s of engraved crests, including numerous crests drawn by hand, arranged by the famed engraver David Deuchar (1743-1808) interestingly organized according to device type (i.e. hands, lions etc.) Carefully compiled and researched manuscript, seemingly intended for publication, with numerous markings accorded to known and unknown heraldic crests and their corresponding family names. Pasted to first blank is a letter dated 1884 from the Edinburgh bookseller William F. Clay explaining how he "secured a unique collection of several thousand heraldic crests and devices, engraved and drawn in ink by the celebrated engraver David Deuchar and his son." He offers the manuscript for 30 shillings (1884). Clearly a working manuscript of the well regarded "Dance of Death" engraver and of great use for research.

    First edition of this riposte to Montesquieu's and Mirabeau's claims of depopulation, a classic example of the 18th-century French tradition of political arithmetic, here a particularly attractive copy. "Messance was secretary to the intendant of the Auvergne, Jean-François de La Michodière, and he published his Recherches sur la population. in 1766. Recognizing the impossibility of coming up with actual figures for the population of the realm, Messance sought to arrive at an estimate through a series of calculations from the figures for births that were available from baptismal records. After comparing the available figures for seven provinces and a large number of cities in France, Messance demonstrated that the population of these regions had increased by one-thirteenth in the previous sixty years. He admitted that this was not a great deal of growth, but it was enough to counter the arguments of those who believed that the population had declined. Messance's rebuttal of Montesqieu and Mirabeau became the first salvo in a concerted effort by the defenders of political arithmetic to place the government's population research on a more rational footing. In the absence of a census, Messance's method for calculating the total population from the number of births became a standard technique of subsequent writers" (Cole, pp. 30-1). A follow-up work, Nouvelles recherches sur la population de la France, was published in Lyon in 1788. The supralibros are that of the Society of Writers to Her Majesty's Signet, an association of Scottish lawyers and one of the oldest professional bodies in the world. Their private library, part of the Parliament house complex in Edinburgh, opened in 1822; King George IV described it as "the finest drawing room in Europe".

Vol I only. 4to, xviii, 407 (i.e. 415), (7, index, plates, errata) pp., with 40 hand-coloured plates as called for including hand-coloured frontispiece and title page vignette. Very good in contemporary brown calf with gilt rules, decoration, and titling to spine with five raised bands. Internally good: some offsetting and very occasional foxing; front endpaper torn but expertly repaired. § First edition. Sixteen of the plates (and per a recent discovery the vignettes on the title-pages, one of which has the miniscule signature "Blake") were engraved by Blake after Stedman's drawings. This book had a substantial impact on Blake, who refers specifically to one of the illustrations that he engraved (that of a slave branded with his owner's initials, ironically those of Stedman himself) in his Visions of the Daughters of Albion: "Stampt with my signet are the swarthy children of the sun". As Forum noted in their catalogue 105 item 265: "Most impressive however, and very modern, are his vivid descriptions of the brutal treatment of the negroes, and his enlightened reflections upon the moral perversions of the slave-owners, leading him to pronounce the strongest possible indictment against slavery ever raised? His observations gave rise to a storm of protest in liberal Europe? his unexpurgated version was only recently published." Abbey, Travel, 719. Bentley 499A. Essick, William Blake's Commercial Book Illustrations, XXXIII. Kress Library 16679. Ray, Illustrator and the Book in England, 2. Volume 1 aquired from Chelsea Rare Books: Vol 2 was sadly stolen from their shop.

    Reliure signée de Yseux s[uccesseu]r de Simier, demi maroquin vert à coin, dos à nerfs, titre et tête dorés, signet, couvertures conservées, ex-libris de Jules Cuenod. Cinquième oeuvre de l'auteur, laquelle cache une sorte de travail collectif dû à Gonzague de Reynold et René Auberjonois, l'artiste composant par ailleurs le dessin de couverture. Cette dernière possède le charme tout particulier des images d'Epinal, genre dont Auberjonois s'est clairement inspiré pour réaliser ce premier travail d'illustration, à peine fait la connaissance de Ramuz. Une quarantaine d'ébauches précédèrent le motif définitif dont le premier et dernier projet sont reproduits dans le catalogue de l'oeuvre peint rédigé par Hugo Wagner (Verseau, 1987 - p.42).Bel exemplaire de tête justifié main; le furent-ils tous ? Impossible de le préciser, c'est le premier qui passe entre les miennes.[Bringolf 5] Édition originale. L'un des 10 exemplaires de tête sur 10 Hollande, avant 400 vergés, seuls tirages.

Sie gehören zu den zahlreichen Märchen und Grotesken, die Schwitters - halb aus künstlerischen Gründen, halb aus Geldmangel - in den Jahren 1923-1928 geschrieben hatte. >Die Märchen vom Paradies. Erste Ausgabe dieses berühmten dadaistischen Bilderbuchs, das später für den Verkauf mit einem Aufkleber versehen und als >Merz<-Heft 16/17 (1925/II) angeboten wurde. "Druck A. Molling & Comp., Hannover". Der Hannoveraner Apossverlag (Akronym aus A = aktiv, p = paradox, os = ohne Sentimentalität, s = sensibel) war eine Neugründung von Kurt Schwitters und Käte Steinitz. - Die hier vorliegende "blaue" Einbandvariante ist die Seltenste und wenig bekannt. Unser Exemplar mit einer eigenh. Bleistiftwidmung "Für Robert Seitz" (Mitbegründer der Magdeburger Künstlervereinigung "Die Kugel"), eigenh. Datierung "2. 12. (19)24" und einem von Schwitters gezeichneten Signet der Künstlervereinigung. Seitz (1891-1938) hatte 1921 einen ersten Band mit expressionistischer Lyrik im Magdeburger Karl Peters-Verlag veröffentlicht, in dem auch die von Bruno Taut herausgegebene kurzlebige Zeitschrift Frühlicht" (1921/22) erschien, zu deren Mitarbeitern Schwitters wie Seitz gehörten. Schwitters hatte Seitz offenkundig schon in dieser Zeit kennengelernt und ihn dann bei seinen 1924 von der "Kugel" in Magdeburg veranstalteten Lesungen, Schwitters "Merzabenden", als Quartiergeber in Anspruch genommen. Wie aus einer im Mai 2019 bei Hesse in Hamburg versteigerten Briefkarte Schwitters vom 28. Januar 1924 (Auktion 15, Nr. 307; vgl. ebd. Nr. 306) hervorgeht, hat Schwitters bei seinem Aufenthalt in Magdeburg im Januar 1924 bei Seitz übernachtet (in der Gr. Diesdorferstr. 24). Dieses Widmungsexemplar war dann wohl eine kleine Dankesgabe Schwitters für seinen Gastgeber. Auf dem hinteren Deckel zwischen Hahn und Schrift eine kleine typografische Entwurfsskizze (vermutlich von Schwitters). PS: In der Katalogbeschreibung Hesses ist der Name falsch als "Herrn Leitz" wiedergegeben. Die Abbildung der Karte weist eindeutig "Herrn Seitz" aus. Sprache: Deutschu.

Rare et précieux recueil de pièces de dévotion en français imprimées parJean le Blanc, maître graveur-imprimeur, qui succéda à l'imprimeur Jean Amazeur. De 1576 à 1579, Jean Le Blanc le jeune, exerça rue Judas à l'enseigne du Coffin d'or, In vico Judaïco, ad insigne Cophini. A partir de 1581, l'indication le jeune disparaît et l'adresse donnée est celle de la maison achetée par Jean Ier en 1548 rue du Paon, à l'enseigne du Soleil d'or, près la Porte Saint Victor, In via Pavonis, ad insigne Solis aurei, prope Portam Sancti Victoris. « Les volumes à cette adresse pourraient aussi être attribués à Jean Ier, mais nous pensons que Jean II aura cessé de se qualifier le jeune, lorsque son frère mourut ou cessa d'exercer, et qu'il le remplaça au Soleil-d'Or. L'acte du 13 septembre 1590 cité aux Documents, indique que les deux Jean Le Blanc étaient frères, ce que dit aussi La Caille, et fils d'un autre Jean » (Renouard). Jacques Kerver confia à Jean Le Blanc l'impression des Heures à l'usage de Paris de 1561 avec des petites figures signées JLB ; Sensuyvent aucune belles preparations en1562 ; Les Quinze Effusions, 1565 ; les Heures à l'usage de Chartres, 1581. Et pour Julien Duval, J. Le Blanc imprima les Heures à l'usage de Paris pour 1566, 1573, 1582 et 1585. Les deux pièces de dévotion Les Quinze Effusions et La Vie de Madame Sainte Marguerite furent réimprimées en 1585 par Jean Le Blanc à la suite des Heures à l'usage de Paris .
