      Chez Estinne Michallet 1678 - - Chez Estinne Michallet, A Paris 1678, In 12 (10x15,5cm), (8) 456pp., relié. - Edition originale, très rare, longtemps attribuée à Madame de La Fayette, et publiée l'année de La princesse de Clèves, puis à Courtilz de Sandras et même à Pierre Daniel Huet. Plein Maroquin fin XIXe signé Bellevallée glacé vieux rouge. Dos à nerfs janséniste. Large frise dorée intérieure. Date en queue. Très bel exemplaire, parfaitement établi, grand de marges, et non lavé. A l'inverse de La princesse de Clèves, ou de La princesse de Montpensier, les Memoires de Hollande n'est pas une nouvelle à caractère historique, mais s'affiche comme un roman de moeurs qui utiise des prénoms modernes. L'oeuvre décrit, à travers les amours d'une juive et d'un Lusignan, la vie aux Pays-bas vers le milieu du XVIIe siècle c'est un des seuls romans osant affronter la réalité telle qu'elle est et l'oeuvre mérite d'être distinguée dans l'invention de la littérature romanesque française à ce titre. Le livre intéresse l'histoire et la topographie des Pays-bas. Il est à remarquer que cette oeuvre se trouvait dans les plus grandes bibliothèques d'amateurs du XIXe siècle (Lignerolles, Rochebilière, Rothschild, Téchener, etc.) (8) 456pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Oeuvre attribuée à Bernard de Montfaucon mais dont la paternité est discutée. Demi Chagrin noir fin XIXe. Dos à nerfs janséniste avec titre et date. Rogné court en page de titre. Bernard de Montfaucon, originaire de Roquetaillade, près de Limoux, était un des hommes les plus érudits de son temps et par ce fait l'un des plus célèbres de son époque, notamment pour son oeuvre monumentale : l'antiquité expliquée en figures. Il était bénédictin, de la congrégation de Saint Maur. L'abbaye de la Trappe, fondé par l'ordre des cisterciens fut annexée au domaine des bénédictins. Elle sera réformée au XVIIe selon 'la règle de la stricte observance par l'abbé de Rancé, beaucoup plus rigide et sévère que celle des Cisterciens. C'est précisément cette réforme que commente Bernard de Montfaucon, réforme qui insuffla un renouveau spirituel à la chrétienté, et qui sauva l'abbaye de la Trappe de l'oubli et de la décadence dans laquelle tombèrent maintes abbayes à cette époque.

A fine gathering in a single volume of the early English translations of Tavernier's renowned and informative accounts of his travels in Asia. Lach refers to the author as "one of the most celebrated travelers of the seventeenth century and one of its greatest authorities on the routes of Eastern travel and on the diamond mines of India." The son of a Parisian geographer, Tavernier completed six overland journeys to Turkey, Persia, and India between 1631 and 1668. "In 1676-77 at Paris, Tavernier published in two volumes LES SIX VOYAGES, one of the most popular books of the seventeenth century. The first volume is centered on Turkey and Persia; the second on India, Ceylon, and the East Indies. By 1712 this work was reprinted at least six times in French, three times in English, and one time each in German, Dutch, and Italian" - Lach. THE SIX VOYAGES. records Tavernier's extensive travels through India, Ceylon, Indonesia, and Persia. Lach writes that the VOYAGES, "are rich in materials on routes, traveling conditions, trading practices, the mines of Golconda [in India], and the Dutch and English activities in the East. While Tavernier's contemporaries debated the authenticity of the VOYAGES, modern scholars agree that they constitute a valuable source for Indian history during the years from 1640 to 1667, or for almost a generation." The twenty-four plates include numerous engravings of coins and gems, reflecting the author's commercial activities, as well as images of town plans and scenes of local color. Two of the finely engraved plates provide examples of Arabic script. The second work, A COLLECTION OF SEVERAL RELATIONS & TREATISES SINGULAR AND CURIOUS, is the English translation of Tavernier's 1679 supplement to the original account of his six voyages. Composed of five separate parts based on the author's own observations and reports from other travellers, these accounts include descriptions of Japan (and Christian persecution there); French negotiations in Persia and India following the establishment of Colbert's East India Company; the kingdom of Tongking (now the northern part of Vietnam); the author's own observations on commerce in the East Indies; and Tavernier's highly critical remarks on "how the Hollanders manage their affairs in Asia." The two maps (on one folding leaf) are of Tonking and Japan; all eight plates show scenes of Tongking, including two related to funerary customs, one of pagodas, and one with fine detail of the costumes of the court. A fine set of the early English translations of Tavernier's celebrated and authoritative account of the East Indies. COX pp.275-76. Lach, ASIA IN THE MAKING OF EUROPE III, Book 1, pp.416-18.

      FIRST EDITION OF ELEVEN OF ANTHONY VAN LEEUWENHOEK'S SEMINAL "MICROSCOPICAL OBSERVATIONS" (which took the form of letters, some quite lengthy) to the Philosophical Transactions. The Phil Trans is the oldest continuously published journal of an academy of science. As such, the Phil Trans established the important principles of scientific priority and peer review that have become the central foundations of scientific journals ever since. Works in every field of science are present. Note that this is the entire original volume and not one of the later 'abridged' volumes. The Leeuwenhoek is accompanied by important papers by Keill, Picolo [Piccolo], Leeuwenhoek, and Hauksbee. Leeuwenhoek's most important discoveries are contained in these celebrated letters to henry Oldenburg, the Society's secretary. Here he communicates his epoch-making experiments with the microscope, revealing to his contemporaries a previously unknown world -- the world of microorganisms. ALSO INCLUDED: First edition, first issue of Derham's report of the first accurate measurement of the speed of sound in air. The Phil Trans is the oldest continuously published journal of an academy of science. The English Natural Philosopher William Derham's experiment, produced the earliest, reasonably accurate estimate of the speed of sound by employing his 16-foot long telescope (also used when measuring the velocity of sound). "Derham utilized guns fired from various church towers and observed the flashes from distances up to 20.1 km (12.5 miles)," observed their firing by placing his telescope "atop of the tower of St. Laurence's Church, and timed the intervals with a pendulym bearing half seconds" (Suckerwar, Handbook of the Speed of Sound, 265). Derham's accuracy was affirmed by Newton. ALSO INCLUDED: John Keill's paper "On the Laws of Centripedal Forces" communicating a theorem developed by Newton. More importantly, however, wading in to the Leibniz v. Newton debate on the discovery of the new calculus, Keill would level the charge that Leibniz made only cosmetic changes to Newton's calculus theorems before presenting them as his own. Though the disagreement raged, Keill greatly upped the anti with his publication of this paper. ALSO iNCLUDED: The first English edition of Prancisco Piccolo and Eusebio Francisco Kino's momentous map of California "refutating the concept of an insular California. This map and its accompanying letters are "usually been considered the first printed account of California, and it certainly was the first to obtain any circulation. They were the first "successful attempt of the famous Society of Jesus (Jesuits) to reduce to some sort of civilization the barbarians of the peninsula and maintain its extablishments in that inhospitable country must always be considered as one of its chief claims to glory...

        Nova et accurata Tartariae Europae sue Minoris et in specie Crimeae

      Augsburg. Map. Copperplate engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 19.5 x 22.75". This unique and rare map centers on the Black Sea, showing the surrounding coastal areas of Southern Russia, Ukraine, Lithuania, and Poland. The confluence of cultures in this region is reflected in the labeling of the Black Sea in seven different languages: Latin, French, Turkish, Russian, Polish, Greek, and German. The blank expanse of the sea, in which these titles are set, sets off the water from the amply detailed land around it and makes it a visual focal point. In the surrounding land, subtle hand coloring helps to define borders and differentiate among the coastal regions. The lower left corner of the map contains a decorative title cartouche depicts some of the variety of cultures to whom the Black Sea is a significant economic resource. This map appeared in Matthaus Seutter's "Atlas novus sive tabulae geographicae totius orbis." It is in very good condition and is overall bright. Minor stains in upper right quadrant of the map. Narrow margins. Matthaus Seutter the Elder (1678-1757) was an engraver, globe maker and map publisher based in Augsburg. He apprenticed with J.B. Homann in Nuremberg and, in fact, this map was likely modeled on Homann's 1725 precedent. Seutter was awarded the title of Imperial Geographer by Karl VI in 1731.

Cudworth attempts to show that Hobbes had revived the doctrines of Protagoras and is therefore subject to the criticisms which Plato had deployed againt Protagoras in the Theaetetus. Cudworth argued that the only real source of knowledge is the Christian religion. Religious truth was embodied in three great principles: the reality of the supreme Divine intelligence and the spiritual world which that intelligence has created, the eternal reality of moral ideas, and the reality of moral freedom and responsibility. see J.A.

        MARAVIGLIE HEROICHE DEL SESSO DONNESCO MEMORABILI NELLA DUCHESSA MATILDA Marchesana Malaspina, Contessa di Canossa &c. Detta la Gran Contessa d'italia, Con Allegationi Historiche, circa la vera esenza del Suo Sangue.

      Imp. Giovanni Battista Merlo. Verona, 1678 - . 29,5 cm. [8], 520 pág. (sign. [ ]6, A-Z4, 2A-Z4, 3A-T4). Texto enmarcado en orla. Grabado calcográfico entre anteportada y portada. Ilustr. con un 12 lám. calcográficas (una es escudo de armas del dedicatario), tres de ellas plegadas (de las cuales una es árbol genealógico de los Malaspina), fuera del texto, y 1 en el texto (p. 167), además de incluir blasones, algunas medallas en grabado xilográfico y varios árboles genealógicos, en el texto. Frisos, capitulares y "culs-de-lampe". Enc. en pergamino, nervios, tejuelo, cortes jaspeados, lomera reforzada. Señal de taladro en lomo y plano anterior. Rara primera edición de esta suerte de biografía ilustrada dedicada a la historia de la condesa Matilda (1046-1115), conocida como la Gran Condesa. Heredera de gran parte de Italia central (Lombardía, Emilia-Romaña y la Toscana), jugó un papel determinante en la querella de las investiduras entre el emperador Enrique IV y el papa Gregorio VII. El primero fue humillado en la fortaleza de Canossa, centro del vasto territorio dominado por esta influyente mujer. La condesa dejó todos sus territorios al papa, un legado que debe situarse en el origen del poder del papado en la época. Dal Pozzo intenta en estas páginas desmentir algunos de los rumores que circulaban sobre ella y, a la vez, honrar a Alberico Cybo Malaspina, dedicatario de la obra, mediante un detallado relato de su vida e historia familiar. Algunos de los grabados vienen firmados por Cesare Zambellini y están fechados en 1677. Istituto Centrale per il Catalogo Unico IT\ICCU\LO1E\003449.

The ten parts also with separate pagination; plate numbers 1678 and 1679[-88] to foot of each page of music. "... the Spanishes Liederspiel... treated Geibel&#39;s translations... in quasi-dramatic form for vocal quartet, duet or solo with piano accompaniment... The poems later inspired Wolf and the genre Brahms. The style is novel; there are syncopations in the accompaniment and bold declamation in the voice, with free-ranging melodies, chromatic harmonies and independent piano parts. All this is often expressly related to the sense of the words." Walker, ed.: Robert Schumann, p. 151.
