B***,M. [ANTOINE BRET]; [2ND WORK] [RUTLEDGE,JAMES (1743-1794)]
LETTRES DE NINON DE L'ENCLOS au Marquis de Sévigné [Bound with] LA QUINZAINE ANGLOISE A PARIS, ou L'Art de s'y Ruiner en peu de Tems.
Amsterdam, [London, but actually Paris], chez François Joly; [2nd work no publisher given] 1769, [1776 or 1777] Engraved portrait frontispiece of Ninon de l'Enclos. . TWO WORKS BOUND IN ONE VOLUME Duodecimo 18th century half-calf, marbled boards (hinges cracked but firm/head & foot of spine chipped/tips worn/spine label missing) Armorial bookplate William Powlett Powlett on front endpaper. First work (Ninon) in three Parts: [4], viii, 120; [2], viii, 120; [2], 128. Second work (Quinzaine) missing 1st 2 leaves including titlepage, begins with the Preface at aiii followed by the second title: [12 of xvi} 287, [1] pp. *Two books considered improper at the time,are here bound together,the first work disguising the presence of the second so that the spine reads only "Ninon de l'Enclos &c" Quinzaine .. is an amusing satirical work by James (or Jean Jacques) Rutledge which was published without attribution to him, first printing in 1776. DNB's article on Rutledge says: "this sketch, which depicts the rapidity with which a 'plunger' may be reduced to destitution by the harpies of Paris, and purports to be a posthumous work by Sterne, to whose works it bears no sort of resemblance. .. The writer states that attempts had been made to suppress the work in Paris". A later translation into English appeared as 'The Englishman's Fortnight in Paris' but there seem to be only two editions in French - 1776 and 1777. Both appeared without attribution to Rutledge and both given as London but probably printed in Paris, their collations also seem to be the same. Hence,lacking the titlepage in this copy,we cannot determine whether it is 1776 or 1777.

No place [probably Cologne] but no place given, No publisher [probably Eucharius Cervicornus] but not given 1540 approx but no date given] Large woodcut portrait of Agrippa on the titlepage supposedly after Woensam of Worms. . 142x95mm early 19th century boards with slightly damaged label (tips rubbed) All edges red, 200 unnumbered leaves (A+a-i+k-u+x-z+aa all in 8). The probable place [Cologne], publisher [Cervicornus] and approx date [1540] of this copy are derived by comparison of its title format, portrait & number of leaves with German library copies referenced in VD 16 A 1161. Manuscript note on the flyleaf by a 19th century Warsaw owner mistakenly dates the book to 1527. Several names written on titlepage, 2 of which are heavily crossed out with some bleed through to blank verso; some paper browning and some underlining increasing towards the end. Last two leaves damaged, one with silking to upper half, and final leaf (printed on one side only) repaired by mounting onto a newer leaf with 12 lines lacking a few letters each, which have been inked in. *A rare early edition of this important work which was placed on the Index of Prohibited books. In fact all Agrippa's books were controversial and brought him into conflict with both church and state. In 1531 Erasmus wrote that everyone was talking about Agrippa's new book De Incertitudine. Erasmus later had his servant read the book aloud to him as he rested after dinner, and in his last letter to Agrippa he said: "I liked the emotional force of your language and the richness of your material, and I do not understand why the monks are so offended. As you censure the bad ones, so you praise the good ones, but they only like to be praised" (see Marc van der Poel, Cornelius Agrippa the Humanist Theologian p118). In this work Agrippa succinctly deals with all forms of science then practised, extending to astrology, magic, the Cabala and other pseudo-scientific occult practices.
