PEERLE.- Margarita Evangelica.- 1542.-
Dye groote evangelische Peerle, vol devoter ghebeden, godlijcker oeffeninghen, ende geesteliker leeringen hoe wy dat hoochste goet (dat God is) in onser sielen sullen soecken ende vinden, ende uyt allen onsen crachten liefhebben ende bevatten. Nu ten lesten wel gecorrigeert ende vermeerdert, ende met schoonder letter correct gedruct. Mathei. xiii. Dat rijck Gods is ghelijck eenen mensche die goede peerlen soect, , ende als hy een costelijcke peerle ghevonden heeft, so vercoopt hi al dat hi hevet, ende cooptse.
Gheprint Thantwerpen buyten dye Camerpoorte, inden, gulden Eenhooren, by mi Willem Vorsterman. Int Iaer ons Heeren. M.CCCCC. ende XLII. (1542). W. printed title in red and black, surrounded by 4 woodcuts (2 floriated, 2 architectural (columns). A large number of woodcut floriated and historiated initials in different sizes. Old overlapping vellum, ties missing. (Upper inner hinge weakening). (A-Z8, A-G8, H4; 244 lvs.). (Lvs. A6, 7, 8 a small strip from lower righthand side missing, appr. 1.5 x 6.5 cm, the ENTIRE leaf supplied in photocopy, the original lvs. A6,7,8 preserved and laid in.). (Title and first few lvs. some soiling. Lower part of printed title a name in ink which has been made invisible by black ink.). (Inscr. in ink on front paste down reading 'Joffrou Leanora van Grevenbroeck'). Comp. Nijhoff/Kronenberg Vol. I, 1689 and 1690 (eds. 1537-39) and vol. II, 3683 (ed. 1536), vol. III, 0965 (1531).: Belgica Typographia I, 4636: Machiels I, P164: Comp. STC Dutch p. 72 (Under Nicolaus van Ess, later eds.): Not in Adams.: Auction sale "Chateau de Heeswijk" (Fred. Muller, May 1901), vol. I, item 200 (Ed. 1536, Antwerpen, Symon Cock).: Het Boek vol 28, pp. 209 - 225. Bibliography of 'Peerle' editions on pp. 219 to end. See for this edition item 6 in the bibliography. Of special interest is the entry under number 8 (Antwerpen, Peetersen, 1548) the copy found at Wittem, Redemptoristenklooster. This particular copy has inscriptions in ink by 'Joff. a Leonora van Grevenbroeck', indicating that the book belongs to her and that it was a gift from her brother Jonkheer Jan van Grevenbroeck, March 1629. Leonora also owned and inscribed the book here offered. The article by A. de Wilt S.J. in Het Boek (Nov. 1943) concentrates on a German translation of this 16th century Low Countries mystical publication, which was printed by the Carthusian Dirk Loer van Hoogstraaten, initially in a shortened version (38 of 168 chapters!). In 1538 a complete edition is published and in 1542 Nicolaas van Ess takes over as publisher. Van Ess or Van Essche (1507 - 1578) was a priest and author of another rare mystical work "Vanden Tempel onser sielen" (Antwerpen, 1543). For a long time this precious 'Peerle' (Pearl) remained hidden and not until the 19th c. there are some scattered references. In the twenties and thirties of this century extensive studies begin to appear, especially concentrating on the origin of the 'Peerle' and the enigmatic female mystic responsible for the text. The ed. 1542 has a preface by van Esch (leaf A2) which is the main source for identifying the author. She was from a noble family, from Oisterwijk or Den Bosch, lived with her father, reached the age of 77, died 28 Jan. 1540. Consequently Maria van Oisterwijk, Anna Bijns and Reinalda van Eymere (great aunt of Petrus Canisius) were put forward as author, none of whom fitted the description required. L. Reypens & J. Huyben, 'Nog een vergeten mystieke grootheid', in: Ons Geestelijk Erf, II -IV (1928/30) and Luc. Verschueren, idem VI (1932).: 6th Dutch edition, 3rd complete, of this important mystic work.

(MIRABEAU, H.G.de)
Errotika biblion.
Rome [?Paris, Neuch‚tel], l'Imprimerie du Vatican, 1783. 8vo. W. woodc. vignet on pr. title, some simple woodc. head-pieces. Nice 19th cent. polished hlf .clf., spine in 6 compartments w. gilt floral ornaments. [n2, A-M8]. (IV, 192 pp.). (Top edge gilt.). (Very nice marbled endp.). (Overall some light foxing.). (a few lvs. w. some brown spots.). Rare first ed.: Mirabeau, french revolutionary, offers us here 10 philosophical reflections on the (erotic) mores and customs of ancient times as opposed to those of modern man [i.e. French 18th c.]. One of the most important aspects in the background of these reflections is of course man's curtailed sense of liberty and freedom to act, over the course of hundreds of years. A link with the Revolutionary Movement may well be surmised. Brunet vol. VI (Table), 18010: Barbier II, 172: Hain-Got. vol. IV, 549: Very good copy of this rare booklet. Not many have appeared at auction in the last few decades. A pirated edition Rome 1783 exists, but collates IV, 188 pp. only; a further edition appeared in 1792 and an annotated version in 1833 Brussels.; Weller, 220: Gay, vol. II, 150: Englisch, comp. 460: Kearney, Erotic literature, p. 80: Kearney, Private case 1190:Famous work printed many times. The book was written in prison and '... machte zweifellos nicht nur der Belesenheit und dem Scharfsinn Mirabeaus, sondern auch der Elastizitšt seines Geistes alle Ehre' [Hain-G]: According to Englisch the first edition exists in three variants. Kearney informs us that the book was written while de Mirabeau was imprisoned in the Castle of Vincennes and that it was attacked with vigour by the authorities, leaving only 14 copies extinct, a figure which (judging by the number of copies offered through the internet) seems quite unlikely. It is said that the entire print run was confiscated by the police in 1796 and destroyed. (This may concern the edition 1792, the year in which the publication was officially put on the index librorum prohibitorum). 'A further edition was ordered to be destroyed in 1826 by the Royal Court of Paris, and for "outrages against public morality and good manners" there were two other prosecutions in, 1856 and 1868' [Kearney]:
