        La Defense du Droit de Marie Therese d'Austriche, Reine de France...

      1674. Legal Foundations of the War of Devolution La Feuillade, Georges d'Aubusson de [1612-1697]. La Defense du Droit de Marie Therese d'Austriche, Reine de France a la Succession des Couronnes d'Espagne. Paris: Chez Sebastien Mabre-Cramoisy, 1674. [xxiv], 164, [1] pp. 12mo. (5-1/2" x 3"). Contemporary sheep treated to resemble tree-calf, gilt spine with raised bands, speckled edges. Some rubbing to extremities with minor wear to spine ends, corners bumped. Toning to text, faint dampstaining and spotting to a few leaves, internally clean. $1,250. * First edition. The author was the Archbishop of Embrun, later Prince-Archbishop of Metz. Mazarin appointed him ambassador to Venice in 1659. Louis XIV appointed him ambassador to Spain in 1667 to pursue French claims to the Spanish Netherlands in the name of Maria Theresa of Austria (1638-1683), the Spanish Infanta and Queen Consort of Louis XIV. These claims were tenuous and constructed on intricate legal foundations. French jurists argued that the Spanish Netherlands should not go to the still underage heir to the Spanish throne, Charles II of Spain (1661-1700), because he was the issue of the second marriage of Philip IV. Maria Theresa on the other hand was a result of his first marriage and the lands thereby 'devolved' to her and, of course, Louis XIV. France's claims led to the War of devolution (1667-68). Feuillade defends France's claims with an argument grounded in the "fundamental laws of Spain, the examples of past centuries and the solemn judgments of the Royal Council of Castile." A second edition was published in 1699. Both copies are scarce, especially in North America. OCLC locates no copies in North American law libraries. British Museum Catalogue (Compact Edition) 1:1145.

Margarita, die aus einer Verwandtenehe von Onkel und Nichte stammte, war ihrerseits die Cousine und Nichte Leopolds, den sie auch während der Ehe 'Onkel' nannte. 1663 wurde die lange geplante Verlobung der Zwölfjährigen verkündet. Die Hochzeit fand zu Ostern 1666 per procuram in Spanien statt.

First edition in German of Pietro della Valle's deservedly famous narrative of his travels in the Middle East, with an excellent account of Muscat and the Arabian Gulf and references to Dibba. Della Valle, an Italian nobleman, sailed from Venice in 1614 to Istanbul, where he arrived in August 1614, spending a year to explore the city. He continued to Rhodes, Alexandria, Rosetta, Cairo, crossing the Sinai desert to Jerusalem, Damascus and Aleppo. From there Della Valle proceeded to Isfahan (Iran) to meet the Safavid ruler Shah Abbas I. He sojourned in Persia until early 1623, witnessing and commenting on the escalating conflict between Shah Abbas and the Portuguese empire. In 1621 he decided to return to Europe and set off for the Persian Gulf, but the Persian and English blockade prevented his sailing. By way of India he finally sailed for Muscat in January 1623, from he crossed the Arabian Gulf to Basra, continuing overland to Aleppo, arriving in Europe in 1626. During his travels he wrote regularly to his learned friend in Naples, Mario Schipano. These 54 letters formed the basis of an account of his travels that was first published in Rome as Viaggi di Pietro della Valle from 1650 to 1658. "Della Valle displayed excellent narrative and descriptive skills, powers of acute observation, and a genuinely scholarly breadth of learning. He refused to comment on what he had not witnessed himself or checked against the best authorities [.] Della Valle's eighteen letters from Persia provide one of the most detailed sources of information for most aspects of Persian life in the second half of Shah Abbas' reign" (Gurney). - Engraved armorial bookplate on paste-down. Evenly browned throughout, some spotting, few quires in volume 3 with wormholes in gutter margin, not affecting the text, otherwise in very good condition. VD 17, 39:135561Q. Tobler, p. 95. Cf.

Verhandelende hoeman in alle voorvallen van Twist in Handtgemeenschap, sich kan hoeden: en alle Aengrepen, Borst-stooten, Vuyst-slagen &c. verstetten. Quarto (235 × 189 mm). Contemporary full vellum, remnant of ink lettering to the spine. 71 etched plates by Romeyn de Hooghe, plate 6 was originally duplicated and the duplication corrected at the time by the imposition of the correct plate numbered 7, over it, so neatly is this done that it is barely visible from the recto. A little rubbed, the front free endpaper somewhat creased and with some loss at the lower corner, light browning, a few faint damp-stains in margins, occasional finger-soiling, some minor chipping at the edges, but overall very good. First edition of this renowned manual of self-defence. The work is particularly notable for the telling combination of de Hooghe's clear, but nonetheless dramatic, illustrations, and the simplicity and lucidity of Petter's written instructions. Prof. Sydney Anglo describes it as "historically speaking, the most important treatise on unarmed combat ever printed ... the finest of all wrestling books and deservedly the most famous" (The Martial Arts of Renaissance Europe, p.190). While Eli Steenput, in the introduction to his English translation (Journal of Western Martial Art, October 2000), remarks that "It is probably unique in presenting an effective and complete unarmed combat system in a format from which it would be actually possible to learn". In themselves de Hooghe's plates are remarkable, fully justifying Otto Benesch's description of him as "not only the greatest Dutch etcher of the period, but the only great artist Holland produced at the end of her classical era … one of the greatest illustrators of all time, comprehending within himself all the various faculties of the universal mind of the Baroque". Wrestling-master Petter's school of practical self-defence for the bourgeoisie on the dangerous streets of Amsterdam, clearly differentiates the book from the earlier tradition of wrestling books, such as the Ringbüchlein, or Fabian von Auerswald's Ringer-Kunst, where smiling contestants are shown engaged in a sporting contest. Iinstead the plates portray well-dressed gentlemen tangling with grimacing, sometimes armed, street toughs. Petter died shortly before publication, and the book was seen through the press by his widow, and his pupil Robert Cors, who explains the principles that lay behind his master's method; "The forces which were lent to the human understanding by nature, are not present alike in each art, and if they were, then they would nevertheless not be developed in the same way. Of two arts one is usually superior, this is in general the one based on knowledge. Most people do not seriously consider how they could secure themselves against all manner ofd abuse or assault, as might be levelled against them by evil-hearted villains, eager for violence. Our wrestler has studied this problem, first developing his mind, then looking for effective strikes and holds, by which one can defend against violent attacks with shoves, punches, or a knife. These he has practised diligently, and, to benefit the community, he has decided finally to compile this instructional book … Cruel Death has untimely taken him from us, before he could bring this project to conclusion. The images had already been prepared during his life, ordered and provided with explanatory captions to instruct the studious wrestler". By way of advertisement, Cors mentions that he is "prepared to instruct interested parties in these techniques for reasonable remuneration and be reached at the Witwe house of Nicolaes Petter on the Prinsengracht in the Gustavusburgh not far from the combat academy". Far from common institutionally, just 20 or so copies world-wide, with most of them in the Netherlands, and very rarely encountered commercially, particularly so in such wonderful, unrestored contemporary condition. This copy with an early anonymous bookplate and the later plate of Amsterdam doctor and bibliophile, Bob Luza, whose collection was sold in 1981.

        Volatiles from the history of Adam and Eve: containing, many unquestioned truths, and allowable notions of several natures

      London, printed for T. Bassett at the George in Fleet-street, 1674. 8vo., (8) + 72 + 75 - 87 + (1) + 88 - 89 + 89 - 188 + (4)pp., including final blank, text continuous despite pagination (see ESTC), blank strip cut away from foot of title-page but not near printed surface or ruled border, rather later calf-backed boards, sympathetically rebacked, spine fully gilt in compartments, with the early 20th century bookplate of Leonard Lionel Bloomsfield*>. Only edition. Wing P.1912. This is an off-piste little book by the natural philosopher and politician Sir John Pettus (ca. 1613-1685), best known now probably for his works on minerals and mining. In his dedicatory piece to his neighbour, Leister Devereux, Viscount Hereford, Pettus observes, self-deprecatingly, that 'possibly, these excursions might have been more excusable to me in my youth, than in my age; but it is a solace to me, that I can be yet youthful in my notions .....'. * Leonard Lionel Bloomsfield was an extraordinary bibliophile. His principal library of some 13,255 volumes (including incunabula and manuscripts and a large part of the personal library of the poets Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett Browning), is now held by Brighton & Hove City Library.

        MACHIAVEL'S DISCOURSES UPON THE FIRST DECADE OF T LIVIUS PRINCE

      1674. Good. (MACHIAVELLI, Niccolo. Dacres, Edward, trans.) MACHIAVEL'S DISCOURSES UPON THE FIRST DECADE OF T. LIVIUS, Translated out of the Italian. To which is added his PRINCE: With some animadversions noting and taxing his errors. By E.D. The Second Edition much corrected and amended. London: Printed for Charles Harper at the Flower-de-luce over against St. Dunstans Church, and John Amery at the Peacock over against Fetter-lane, both in Fleet-street, M. DC. LXXIV [1674]. The two works in this volume, translated by Dacres, were first published separately in 1636 and 1640 respectively. The first combined edition was printed in 1663; and this is the second edition thus, of the combined edition, corrected and amended. Two slightly different title pages are noted for this edition: in addition to the publisher information, the first supplies bookseller information (to be sold by Thomas Burrell and William Hensman) and the publication date is given in arabic numerals; while the second, offered here, omits the bookseller information and has the publication date in roman numerals. Frontispiece portrait of Machiavelli, engraved by R. White. [xxiv],686,[2] pp., including the portrait. Octavo, 17 x 11 cm, contemporary leather boards, worn and rebacked, with endpapers renewed. All edges marbled. The Prince has a separate title page dated 1673. Many errors in numeration. Complete, clean, and very good overall. Although Machiavelli's writings in the original Italian, as well as his reputation, preceded Dacres' translation of the Discourses and the Prince to England, Dacre's translations gave wider exposure to Machiavelli's practical politics advocating councils based on political pragmatism and historical experience, and extended his influence on English political thought. Machiavelli's Discourses were of special interest at the time of publication in England because they provided a justification of republicanism. (Wing M135A).

        The works...consisting of those which were formerly printed: and those which he design'd for the press, now published out of the authors original copies. The fourth edition

      London: Henry Herringman (pr. by J.M.) Folio (30 cm, 11.8"). Frontis., [42], 41, [1 (blank)], 80, [4], 70 (59/60 skipped in pagination, text uninterrupted), 154, 23, [1 (blank)], 148 pp.. 1674 Cowley's collected poems in their fourth edition, beginning with a good impression of => the frontispiece portrait engraved by Faithorne, "an account of the life and writings" of the poet signed by T. Spratt, and two odes on Cowley's death by Thomas Higgons and Sir John Denham. Once considered the epitome of his era's wit, the author of "The Mistress" (verses in honor of love and various women, included in this volume) suffered a notable decline in popularity in subsequent years, prompting Pope's musing "Who now reads Cowley? . . . but still I love the language of his heart." And indeed despite the vagaries of reputation he has always had his worthy appreciators. Cowley's Pindaric odes are present here, as are the "Davideis" and "Davideidos"; also set forth are the "delightful little prose Essays (with verse interwoven)" for which The Concise Cambridge History of English Literature believes Cowley will most ultimately be remembered. Some sections have separate title-pages, bearing the same publisher and date information as the main Provenance: Front pastedown with small armorial bookplate and with bookseller's ticket from Cambridge, England. 17th-century mottled calf, rebacked at some point in the 19th century and again more recently with hinges carefully reinforced (inside); spine gilt extra with gilt-stamped leather title label, covers showing the predictable acid-etching. Varying degrees of browning to pages; scattered incidents of worming in lower inner and outer margins, almost never affecting text. A handsome book in a binding both sturdy and attractive.

Lugd. 1675." Jöcher (1819), 6.Bd. - - "Franciscus Sylvius de le Boe aus Hanau (1614-1672), ein berühmter Professor der Anatomie in Leyden, dessen Namen der Aquaeductus Sylvii und die Fossa Sylvi tragen, ist der Begründer der iatrochochemischen Schule, die fast alle Krankheiten darauf zurückführt, daß dem Blute Acrimonia (Schärfen) - alkalische oder besonders hyperazide Säfte - beigemischt sind. In seinem Tracttus "De morbis infantum" (1674) erklärt er auch die Kinderkrankheiten in dieser Weise. - - Er beschreibt in seinem Werke (Peiper, p.130): - 1. Icterus, - 2. Bauchschmerzen, - 3. grüne, sauer riechende Stühle, - 4.Aufstoßen, Singultus, Nausea, Kardialgie, Erbrechen, besonders von geronnener Milch, - 5. Aphthen, - 6. epilerpetische Anfälle; - 7. Erschwerte Zahnung, - 8. S. Tinea (eine Krankheit des behaarten Kopfes) und Scabies, - 9. Variola und Morbillen, - 10. Würmer. - - Auch "Harris ist der Ansicht, daß 'ein Azidum oder saueres Wesen in denen vornehmsten Zuständen der jungen Kinder durchaus die Oberhand habe und die meisten Zufälle verursache'. Er beruft sich dabei auf Francisus Sylvius de le Boe, der bereits die gleiche Anschauung vertreten hat." Peiper, p.131 - - "1650 entdeckt . Slyvius in Leyden die Tuberkel in unserem Sinne und beschreibt sie als größere und kleinere drüsenartige Tuberkula in den Lungen.

(1689)! - Gastro-Acidity as the Cause of Infantile Disease : "Sylvius' 'De Morbis Infantum' which is in the 4th book of his, 'Praxeos Medicae Appendix,' "illustrates his ideas about gastro-intestinal acidity as the cause of infantile disease. His view was adopted by Walter Harris a few years later, but he complained that Sylvius had not followed out the logical sequence of this theory." Herny Schumann, Trent Collection - Franciscus de le Boé Sylvius (1614-1672), professor of the practice of medicine of Leyden, was one of the foremost physicians of his time. In 1637, Sylvius, as he was called, is credited by Haller giving the first description of the lateral cerebral fissure which bears his name. Although the aqueduct from the third to the fourth ventricle had been previously noted, Sir Michael Foster says we owe to Sylvius the name of the aqueduct. Both anatomical structures are described in Sylvius's Diputationes Medicarium. To clinical neurology Sylvius contributed the observation that some tremors were always present and some appeared only during movement." Mc Henry , Histotry of Neurology, p.64. - "Sylvius was the first to describe the tubercles in phthisis. In the history of medicine, however, Sylvius was the most brillant representative of the iatrochemical school, founded by Paracelsus and continued by J.B. van Helmont, which reached its zenith when Sylvius defended the chemiatric conception from the Leiden chair. He was convinced that all physiological and pathological processes could be conceived perfectly in analogy in the chemical laboratory and could be explained by fermentation, effervescence, and putrefaction. Acid and alkali were considered as fundamental principles in the animal body." G.A. Lindeboom, DSB XIII, pp.222-223 - - . [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

La città appare racchiusa da una robusta cinta bastionata, ed è difesa dalla Cittadella voluta da Emanuele Filiberto nel secondo Cinquecento; nella struttura regolare del tessuto urbano, risaltano le piazze su cui si affacciano gli edifici simbolici del potere ducale. Borgonio, autore del disegno per varie tavole del Theatrum, fu anche noto miniatore e blasonatore della corte sabauda. Esemplare in buono stato conservativo.

        His Majesties commission for the rebuilding of the cathedral church of S. Paul in London

      St. Paul's cathedral in London had been almost completely destroyed in the 1666 Great Fire. What was left standing had to be demolished. The 1674 Royal Commission, issued on 12th November 1674, not only authorised the final demolition but charges the Lord Mayor, Sir Robert Hanson, and a large group of named commissioners "to demolish and take down what is yet remaining of the old fabrick, and to begin, and carry on the new work ...... and to call to your aid and assistance, such skilful artists, officers, and workmen, as ye shall think fit ....."."And although we are very sensible, that the erecting such a new fabrick or structure according to the design above mentioned, will be a work not onely of great time but also of very extraordinary cost, and expence, (far above that of the repairs either former or later:) yet are we in no sort discouraged from undertaking the same .....".And the King promises to contribute £1000 p.a. towards the rebuilding costs, but hopes also that local residents in the City "will be ready to follow Our example by chearful and bountiful supplies to the carrying on and finishing the said work ......". Donations would be received by the Dean. Indeed, the Commission set out not only the scheme for national and local fund-raising, but also set the parameters for financial and project management and accountability. Among those commissioned was "Christopher Wren Doctor of Laws, Surveyor General of Our Works".In 1675, the year following, work on the new cathedral, based on Wren's so-called 'Warrant Design', would begin. It was not declared complete, however, until 1711.folio, title printed within double-ruled borders, woodcut of royal arms, 39 + (1)pp., bound recently in a fine old-style quarter calf gilt over marbled boards by Trevor Lloyd.
