Reveu & augmenté par l'Autheur en cette dernière édition, presque de moitié. III- Troisiesme livre des Serées de Guillaume Bouchet ( ). Reveu & corrigé de nouveau par l'Autheur.

      - Rouen, Louys Loudet, 1634-1635. 3 tomes reliés en 2 volumes petit in-8, plein veau fauve de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs ornés de compartiments richement fleuronnés et cloisonnés, pièces de titre de maroquin bordeaux, roulette dorée sur les coupes, dentelle intérieure dorée, tranches dorées, (1) f. de titre, (14), 382 p.; (1) f. de titre, (12), 361 p. et (1) f., [362]-715 p. "La meilleure édition" (selon Ch. Nodier), la plus complète et la dernière ancienne, de ce célèbre recueil de veillées, d'anecdotes, bons mots, facéties et dialogues "dont les interlocuteurs sont bien les élèves de Rabelais". Le texte, qui s’inspire de conversations tenues à Poitiers, mêle ingénieusement, avec parfois "force obscénités", réflexions, expériences personnelles et témoignages, anecdotes pittoresques et citations, organisés par thèmes (le vin, les femmes, du poisson, les accouchées, les cocus & les "cornards", juges & avocats, les médecins, les décapités & les pendus, les songeurs, des odeurs, les sourds & muets, les personnes grosses & grasses, barbiers et mal de dents, Mores & Noirs, De la musique & des joueurs d’instruments, des "fols", De la diversité des langues, etc. etc.). Véritable panorama satirique et moral de la société de son temps, ce recueil constitue également une source philologique et historique que Viollet-le-Duc et Charles Nodier et considéraient comme "le répertoire le plus complet et le plus considérable des facéties, des bons mots, des quolibets qui ont eu cours chez tous les peuples depuis qu’il existe des conteurs et des écrivains qui trouvent plaisir à recueillir des contes". Imprimeur poitevin, Guillaume Bouchet (1513-1594) avait été en relation avec de nombreux écrivains de son temps. Nommé juge-consul des marchands de Poitiers, c'est à eux qu'il dédie ces "Sérées", dont la première publication eut lieu en 1584 et auxquelles il donnera deux suites qui figurent ici. (Dreux-du Radier, ‘Poitou’, I, 259. ‘Des livres rares depuis l’invention de l’imprimerie’, BnF, p. 158-159. Nodier, ‘Description raisonnée d’une jolie collection de livres’, 1844, p. 386, n°926: "la meilleure édition". Oberlé, 'Fastes‘, 365. Tchemerzine-Scheler, I, 936-937.). Petits accrocs aux coins. Défauts aux mors. Un peu court de marges sans atteinte au texte. Quelques rousseurs. Cachet ex-libris ancien d'école militaire. Bon exemplaire, bien relié à l'époque. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

As a schoolboy, Newton neglected his school work in favor of building mechanical works, including a windmill, a water clock (clepsydras), a cart run by a crank, and an airborne lantern. Many of his contrivances, including those just mentioned, as well as a process for making various colored inks, were found in Bate's Mysteryes (see Westfall's biography of Newton Never at Rest, p. 61). It was a book which fully engaged the youthful Newton's natural precocious interests. Indeed, his fascination with color and the mixing of colors stemmed from Bate's book. "All editions, more particularly the first and third, are moderately rare, and are not readily procurable in really nice state [this was written in 1898]?The first book contains a good many ingenious devices worked by water power.

        Marcus Aurelius Antoninus the Roman emperor, his meditations concerning himselfe:

      London: printed by M. Flesher for Richard Mynne,, 1634. treating of a naturall mans happinesse; wherein it consisteth, and of the meanes to attaine unto it. Translated out of the original Greek; with notes: by Meric Casaubon. Small quarto (185 x 132 mm), without blank A1, otherwise complete as issued. Mid 20th-century plain calf, spine gilt-lettered and dated direct, double gilt rules, red edges. Engraved plate. Bookplate of the Philadelphia architect Hamilton Vogdes (1893–1979) to front pastedown. With contemporary marginalia and underlining on approximately 50 pages, often struggling to reconcile the text with Christian orthodoxy, a few comments just shaved at fore edge. Light toning to contents, a very good copy. First edition in English, a translation that proved an enduring success, remaining in print into the 20th century. "The charitable-sociable Stoicism of Casaubon's Marcus Aurelius appealed to a peaceful cosmic holism and rational moral duty in urging the pious conformity widely praised by Stuart advocates of the established church" (Barbour, English Epicures and Stoics, p. 195). In the 19th century Marcus Aurelius' reputation became increasingly contested, on the one hand being praised by liberal Anglican scholars who read his Stoicism as prefiguring Christianity, on the other championed by a number of prominent writers who found it difficult to believe in the existence of God at all. Copies have occasionally appeared on the market with the Faithorne engraved portrait of Marcus Aurelius from Gataker's edition of 1652 inserted as frontispiece, but none is called for in this edition. Aside from the initial blank, this copy is complete as issued. The engraved plate in the section of notes illustrates three Roman pots from the collection of Henry Dering of Kent.

Intact copies from the early 17th century are rare on the market as most copies were read to the point of tatters. No copy has come up for auction from before 1650 in the last several decades.

At the same time it was an attack on the practices and utility of apothecaries as he provided details on how to compose common pharmaceutical compounds and advised the public to buy the ingredients directly. Of course the recipes where to be made under a physician's directions.The present edition is only known from the, also rare, Claude Griset issue published in the same year, the engraved title-page includes Griset's name, while the letterpress title-page just has Jean Gesselin's name in the imprint.With owner's inscription of A. de Grateloup on paste-down. Some occasional minor foxing, three leaves have a small corner torn-off and some leaves have some wormholes in the margins. A good copy.

        The English usurer; or usury condemned,

      London: printed by John Norton, and are to bee sold by Francis Bowman, in Oxford,, 1634. by the most learned and famous divines of the Church of England, and dedicated to all his Maiesties subiects, for the stay of further increase of the same. Small quarto (172 x 133 mm). Recent full brown calf, gilt and blind rule borders to boards, red morocco spine label. Woodcut before title depicting in one compartment a usurer counting his money, and in the other two pigs rooting, with facing explanation leaf. George Goyder bookplate Woodcut and facing leaf lightly soiled and stained, a few neat repairs to the leaf of verses, trimmed a little close, shaving the rule above the headline on many leaves, some light spotting, still a very good copy. First edition of this useful anthology of contemporary English writing on usury—Downame, Fenton, Mosse, et al.—designed to show that usury is condemned by all "our most Learned and Orthodoxicall divines". "For the critics of the new commercial order, usury epitomized a depersonalized age against which they thrust God's command not to charge interest to the poor, asserting as a final proposition that in a loan the borrower by definition is poorer than the lender. 'The biting worme of usury ... hath corrupted all England,' John Blaxton maintained, evoking in turn the neighborly ideal, the role of Christian charity, and the sin of storing up treasure, in an effort to awaken the conscience of those who deluded themselves that usury was acceptable in the eyes of God. Usury turned charity into an act of self-love, he said" (Appleby). There are poetical contributions by, among others, Joshua Sylvester, Francis Quarles, and George Wither. The woodcut frontispiece is the most attractive feature of the book, depicting a moneylender in gown and ruff seated at his desk, a small devil perched jauntily on his chair back, and in the other panel a couple of pigs rooting in earth and wallowing in mire. It was used as the cover illustration for Norman Jones's book on the usury debate, God and the Moneylenders (1989), and for Joyce Appleby's Economic Thought and Ideology in Seventeenth-Century England (1978). One of three imprint variants of this edition: the others are for booksellers in Dorchester and Wells – Blaxton was rector of Osmington in Dorsetshire.
