         Callipaedia, seu de pulchrae Prolis habendae ratione, Poema Didacticon. Cum uno et altero eiusdem Authoribus carmine.

      Parisiis, apud Thomam Ioly, 1656. - in-8. 8ff. 94pp. 1f. Plein vélin de l'époque. Edition en partie originale, présentant pour la première fois la version définitive de ce célèbre poème médical sur l'art de faire "de beaux enfants". Claude Quillet (1602-1661) était un médecin originaire de Chinon en Touraine qui mêla dans cet ouvrage les croyances populaires de son temps à ses idées souvent innovantes sur le développement des enfants et leur éducation. On peut notamment relever l'importance accordée par l'auteur aux sentiments éprouvés par la mère pendant la grossesse, à la vie affective de l'enfant ainsi qu'à son alimentation. Parue l'année précédente sous le voile de l'anonymat à Leyde, la première édition de cet ouvrage contenait plusieurs passages hostiles à Mazarin; mais le cardinal lui ayant malgré tout manifesté son estime, Quillet s'employa à réparer son affront dans cette seconde édition non seulement en remplaçant les 6 vers hostiles par 13 vers élogieux, mais aussi en allant jusqu'à dédier l'ouvrage au cardinal. Cette édition contient par ailleurs un opuscule paraissant pour la première fois, avec une page de titre séparée: "In obitu Patri Gassendi insignis philosophi astronomi, Lugubre Encomium". C'est l'éloge funèbre de son ami le philosophe et astronome Pierre Gassendi (1592-1655) qui fréquentait les mêmes cercles de "libertins érudits" et qui venait de disparaître. Quillet était effectivement un libre penseur et Sylvain Maréchal indique même dans son "Dictionnaire des Athées anciens et modernes" que dans la présente Callipédie "il paraît être Athée". Bel exemplaire portant sur le titre l'ex-libris manuscrit du monastère parisien des Blancs-Manteaux, de la congrégation des bénédictins de St-Maur, avec la mention "Ex dono D.D. Desgouges 1716".

      In Padova, appresso Francesco Bertelli 1656 - Cm. 29, pp. (8) 115 (1).

Legatura strettamente coeva in piena pergamena semi-rigida con titoli ms. al dorso e nervi passanti. Antica correzione manoscritta alla data (9 al posto di 5, 1696). Macchiette alla legatura, qualche trascurabile e marginale alone, trascurabili tracce di inchiostro di stampa a poche carte. Esemplare nel complesso fresco e ben conservato. Vittorio Zonca (1568-1602), architetto e inventore padovano, fu autore di questa fondamentale opera, ritenuta il più importante studio tecnologico della prima metà del Seicento. Le magnifiche tavole, che accompagnano la descrizione testuale dei diversi mestieri, sono arricchite dalla presenza di personaggi dediti al lavoro e raffigurano un gran numero di macchinari utilizzati per gli scopi più curiosi, alcuni anche inventati dall"Autore. Dall"indice: vite perpetua per alzare serrate e porte; machina per tirar pietre, diversi molini, pistrino per pestar diverse materie, macchina per arruotar armi; machina per sollar panni di lana; strettoio per far il vino e l"oglio; mangano; ruota per alzar l"acqua; torchio per stampar i libri; filatoio d"acqua; machina da pestar la polvere per le bombarde; cartiera, ecc. Questa edizione è considerata la migliore e più completa, grazie alla nitidezza delle incisioni; la prima edizione, sempre postuma, fu pubblicata nel 1607 a Padova da Pietro Bertelli. Così Riccardi II, 669: "Le tav. sono impresse meglio che nelle precedenti edizioni". Cfr. anche Iccu; Brunet, V, 1539; Graesse, VII, 518. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

(Abbé A. Roche).Celles-les-Bains se situe près de La Voulte-sur-Rhône, dont Henri de Levis-Ventadour était le co-seigneur.Gaspard de Perrin identifie trois sources différentes, Levi, Cicéron et Ventadour ; toutes trois aux vertus inégalées et chacune avec ses prescriptions. Leur composition chimique explique leur efficacité : elles "passent par le vitriol et se chargent d'un sel et esprit vitriolique emprégnés de son soulphre narcotique". Ces eaux sont non seulement "des remèdes pour la guérison des maladies et conservation de la santé", mais elles sont aussi des produits de beauté dont l'auteur veut bien partager le secret. Il indique trois moyens "des plus exquis, bénins, naturels et sans corrosion" pour "blanchir la face et conserver le teint".En outre, l'ouvrage contient diverses autres pièces : une dédicace de l'auteur à Henri de Levis, Duc de Ventadour, Comte de La Voulte, daté du 1er novembre 1656 à Marsanne ; une première réponse de Ventadour, datée du 9 décembre 1656 à Paris ; une deuxième réponse du même, datée du 16 mars 1657 à Paris ; divers poèmes adressés à l'auteur, l'un d'entre eux signé de Godemard, Me apothicaire à La Voulte ; une adresse de l'auteur "au lecteur iudicieux" et une autre à son livre ; une lettre de Perrin à Messieurs les chirurgiens et pharmaciens de La Voulte.

         LES SAINCTES PRIERES DE L'AME CHRESTIENNE

      Paris: Jean Henault, 1656. Fifth Edition n. This is an especially charming engraved prayer book that belonged to a very prominent 17th century French family. Moreau (ca. 1600-48) was a calligrapher and writing-master who also published writing manuals. He designed a special cursive type called "lettres financières," which he dedicated to Louis XIII, who made him a printer in ordinary in 1643. The present item does not use his moveable type, but employs engraved prayers done on separate copperplates, which were then fitted with any one of 16 ornamental borders, featuring birds, mermaids, cherubs, fruits, and flowers. In addition to the borders, there are also a number of engravings of flowers or fruit, as well as images of saints, scenes from the life of Christ, royal arms, and portrayals of the Seven Deadly Sins personified (envy is particularly powerful as a Medusa-like creature accompanied by a mangy dog). According to Guigard, this copy was bound with the arms of Antoine de Buade, Comte de Palluau, counsellor of state for Henri IV, and first steward of the royal household. He had a substantial library, but he died in 1633 (and his son Henri died in 1622), so this must have been bound for his grandson Louis de Buade, Comte de Frontenac et de Palluau (1625-98), who was known as a bibliophile himself and who served as Governor General of New France from 1672-82 and from 1689-98. Roger Paultre was both a collector and respected scholar of French emblem books and other illustrated works; his collection was sold in 1993 at Drouot.. 164 x 109 mm. (6 1/2 x 4 1/4"). [106] leaves. Fifth Edition. Contemporary black morocco, covers with blind-stamped armorial device of the Buade family (three griffin legs, surmounted by a crown), raised bands, two silver metal clasps, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. ENGRAVED THROUGHOUT in calligraphic script with elaborate borders and images of Christ, Mary, and the Seven Deadly Sins, all by Moreau. Front pastedown with bookplate of Roger Paultre. Bonacini 1228 (1644 ed.); For the binding: Guigard II, 130. Joints and extremities minimally rubbed (and well masked with dye), fore margin of most leaves faintly thumbed (title page just slightly more so), lower right marginal corner of a dozen leaves with small, very weak dampstain, final page with adhesion at inner margin, other trivial defects, but still quite an appealing copy, the binding solid, lustrous, and scarcely worn, and the engraved text bright, smooth, and clean.This is an especially charming engraved prayer book that belonged to a very prominent 17th century French family.

In addition to the borders, there are also a number of engravings of flowers or fruit, as well as images of saints, scenes from the life of Christ, royal arms, and portrayals of the Seven Deadly Sins personified (envy is particularly powerful as a Medusa-like creature accompanied by a mangy dog). According to Guigard, this copy was bound with the arms of Antoine de Buade, Comte de Palluau, counsellor of state for Henri IV, and first steward of the royal household. He had a substantial library, but he died in 1633 (and his son Henri died in 1622), so this must have been bound for his grandson Louis de Buade, Comte de Frontenac et de Palluau (1625-98), who was known as a bibliophile himself and who served as Governor General of New France from 1672-82 and from 1689-98. Roger Paultre was both a collector and respected scholar of French emblem books and other illustrated works; his collection was sold in 1993 at Drouot.

Second Edition, rare first Octavo Edition of "Cheiroplotheke Seu D. Joannis Sculteti, Physici & Chyrurgi apud Ulmenses olim felicissimi Armamentarium Chirurgicvm XLIII Tabulis Aeri elegantissimè incisis, nec ante hac visis, exornatum. Opus posthumum, Medicinæ pariter ac Chirurgiæ Studiosis perutile [et] necessarium, In quo tot, tam Veterum ac Recentiorum Instrumenta ab Authore correcta, quàm noviter ab ipso inventa, ... Cum triplici ... Indice." "Schultes is famous for his illustrations of surgical procedures and instruments. The first edition (1655) was the only edition published in folio format. This was the most popular surgical text of the 17th century." "Schultes (1595-1645), born at Ulm on the Danube, was a pupil of Hieronymus Fabricius ab Aquapendente (as was William Harvey) and Adriaan van de Spiegel at Padua where he received a doctorate in medicine, surgery, and philosophy.... His 'arsenal of surgery' was published a decade after his death by his nephew. The work contains accounts of surgical instruments, methods of bandaging and splinting, numerous operative procedures including amputation of the breast, obstetrical delivery by forceps, and one hundred case reports." Iowa 466 "The Armamentarium Chirurgicum, upon which the fame of Scultetus rests, is a remarkable book for its time. It contains a complete catalogue of all known surgical instruments, of the methods of bandaging and splinting, and a vast number of operative procedures, all of which are illustrated in graphic detail by means of numerous plates. In addition it contains a large number of case reports which give evidence of his surgical daring and skill." Zimmerman and Veith. Great Ideas in the History of Surgery. pp.250-251. This copy has the extra engraved title dated 1657 which is often missing in other copies, but. As noting is perfect, this charming book is lacking one leaf (pp.125-126, but the plate 35 (p.126) is added as facsimile.

Contemporary black morocco, covers with blind-stamped armorial device of the Buade family (three griffin legs, surmounted by a crown), raised bands, two silver metal clasps, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. ENGRAVED THROUGHOUT in calligraphic script with elaborate borders and images of Christ, Mary, and the Seven Deadly Sins, all by Moreau. Front pastedown with bookplate of Roger Paultre. Bonacini 1228 (1644 ed.); For the binding: Guigard II, 130. Joints and extremities minimally rubbed (and well masked with dye), fore margin of most leaves faintly thumbed (title page just slightly more so), lower right marginal corner of a dozen leaves with small, very weak dampstain, final page with adhesion at inner margin, other trivial defects, but still quite an appealing copy, the binding solid, lustrous, and scarcely worn, and the engraved text bright, smooth, and clean.

         [South America] Zuyder deel van America uyt gegeven

      Colom's is one of the earliest obtainable Dutch Sea Charts to show the Sea Coasts of South America. The map shows the coastal features of South America south of the Equator, with a large inset of Central America.  The chart is executed in the Portolan style, with rhumblines and fine coastal detail for the time period. Arnold Colom was the son of Jacob Colom, a well-regarded Amsterdam bookseller, printer, and chart-maker. Colom produced two sea atlases, a guide and pilot for the Mediterranean and a general sea atlas of the World. Colom's Zee Atlas, published between 1654-58, was one of the largest format sea atlases of the 17th Century, with each chart printed from an oversized copper plate. Koeman describes the atlas as "One of the most important atlases in the well known category of Dutch sea-atlases". Apart from its rarity, the Zee-Atlas was of importance for its inclusion of the earliest Dutch sea chart of the New Netherlands to appear in an atlas (Jacob Theunisz Lootsman's chart is believed to pre-date it, but seems not to have been regularly published until later), while the "three charts of the oceans are on the same scale (1:14mill.) as Portuguese and Spanish charts of that time. It marked the first time that such charts were published as atlas sheets" (Koeman IV, p.115).
