      Paris: Chez M. Gobert, 1618. 8vo. 4 folding maps, 4 folding plates. (Signature "E" supplied from another copy). Contemporary vellum, manuscript title on spine, modern morocco-backed slipcase. John Locke's copy of the rare first Paris edition of "Willem Schouten's voyage around the world, during which Cape Horn was discovered and rounded for the first time" (Hill): a landmark voyage in the history of western exploration. Schouten's voyage was one of the great early voyages of discovery and only the third circumnavigation. Undertaken in 1615 and lasting until 1617, this important expedition succeded in its primary objective which was to find an alternative route to the rich sources of wealth in the Pacific. The Dutch East India Company had a strangle-hold on the two known routes: via the Cape of Good Hope and through the Straits of Magellan. A rival group of aggressive Dutch traders, formed the "Compagnie Australe", and eqiuiped the expedition with discovered and rounded Cape Horn, named after the Dutch town of Hoorn where the sponsors were based. In addition, the expedition explored the Pacific coast of South America, pursued the search for Terra Australis, and proved that Tierra del Fuego was not an island. Principle among the Hoorn merchant benefactors was Isaac Le Maire, whose son, Jacob Le Maire, was charged as the director of the enterprise. Jacob named the Le Maire strait in honour of his father. "The ship Eendracht, while crossing the Pacific, discovered some of the Tuamotu Islands, the Hoorn Islands, the Schouten Islands, and visited New Guinea, the Moluccas, and Batavia. When Schouten and Le Maire arrived in Ternate, their ship was confiscated by the Dutch East India Company [as they were unable to convince the authorities that they had arrived by a third unrestricted route] ... The Dutch governor of Batavia sent them back to the Netherlands with Joris van Spilbergen ... Thus these famous navigators returned home together. Sadly, Jacob Le Maire did not share the honors, as he died of fever at Mauritius on the return trip" (Hill [2004] p.547). This edition contains four maps and four plates: 1. map of the world in two hemispheres with surrounding portraits; 2. map of Tierra del Fuego; 3. map of the South Sea; 4. plate of a Polynesian sailing a canoe; 5. plate bearing the inscription, "Isle de Cocos"; 6. plate bearing the inscription, "Isle de Hoorn"; 7. plate of the "Indian kings" and their village; 8. map of Nova Guinea. This copy has the pagination errors on pages 56, 215, and 179, that are not found in all copies. Schouten's work was originally published in Amsterdam in 1618 by Willem Jansz Blaeu. Though printed in his name, Schouten was most likely not the author of the present work, and it was probably compiled for him by Blaeu from the ships' logs. The work proved to be exceedingly popular, "no fewer than thirty-eight editions of the work were printed in Holland alone between the year 1618 and 1766" (Church). This copy has the additional interest of having belonged to the famous philosopher John Locke, and includes his ink ownership inscription on the front pastedown. In front of his signature Locke has made the notation "b" which, according to The library of John Locke by Harrison and Laslett, was an inventory mark put into books in or about 1697 and not to be found in any books acquired after that date. Locke has noted at the foot of the titlepage that this is a duplicate copy. A translation of part of Locke's epitaph reads: "bred a scholar, he made his learning subservient only to the cause of truth", a dictum that led to a period of exile in Amsterdam. Locke "is widely regarded as one of the most influential Enlightenment thinkers and contributors to liberal theory. His writings influenced Voltaire and Rousseau, many Scottish Enlightenment thinkers, as well as the American revolutionaries. This influence is reflected in the American Declaration of Independence."

Planscherna och titelbladen graverades av Vallentin Staffansson Trautman, "kopparstickarre i Norreförstadh" i Stockholm. Träsnitten är utförda av Jacob Mores, guldsmed och gravör i Hamburg. Lindberg skriver: "The frames to these illustrations are by the same artist and technique and consist of grotesques and the vices and virtues within strap-work in the style of the dutch artist Jan Vredeman de Vries. These metal blocks were later used for abridged so-called figure-bibles in the 18th and 19th centuries and through these editions came to inspire the famous wall-painters of Dalarna, among the most interesting features of swedish folk-art." I redaktionen ingick bl.a. Johannes Rudbeckius. Fredrik Stahl är eventuellt identisk med den Fredrik Staël von Holstein som enligt Lewenhaupt var konduktör vid fortifikationen i Pernau, senare kapten vid fortifikationen i Göteborg och som avgick 1701 "för dess förgripelses skull". Stahls skriver att boken skänkts till kungliga biblioteket i Pernau 1709 av en medborgare i Pernau. Eventuellt syftar denna "medborgare" på Stahl själv

        King Louis XIII Asks the Pope to Exempt the Benedictine Maurist Order from Taxation The request was made on the election of a new Chief Abbott

      King Louis XIII Asks the Pope to Exempt the Benedictine Maurist Order from Taxation The request was made on the election of a new Chief Abbott. Benedictine monks in France instituted reforms in Paris and then St-Augustin de Limoges in the second decade of the 17th century, requiring that those who desired to embrace the monastic life spend one year as postulants, a second as novices, and then, when they had completed the five years' course of philosophy and theology, spend a year of contemplation before they were admitted to the priesthood. The discipline was marked by a return to the strict rules of St. Benedict. All monks labored with their hands, all abstained from eating meat, all embraced poverty; the Divine Office was recited at the canonical hours with great solemnity, silence was observed for many hours, and there were regular times for private prayer and meditation. In 1618, it was decided that a congregation independent of Rome should be organized for the reformed houses in France, having its superior residing within that kingdom. This proposal was supported by Louis XIII as well as by Cardinal Richelieu, and letters patent were granted by the King. The Pope's approval followed. The new organization was named the Congregation of St-Maur, or Maurists. Dom Maur Dupont was elected head in 1627. In 1629, he sought to step down, which meant that an election would have to be held for his successor. Letter Signed in French, Fountainbleau, September 6, 1629, to Cardinal Guido Bentivoglio, who was entrusted by King Louis XIII with the management of French affairs at the papal court, and whom he addresses as "my cousin the Cardinal Bentivoglio, Protector of the Affairs of France at the court of Rome." "Having by my letters patent of the month of January 1627, recorded in my Grand Council, bestowed on Dom Maur Dupont the position of Abbot to the monks of the Abby of St. Augustin near my town of Limoges...and the congregation of St. Maur, and having arrived at the departure of the said Dupont, Abbot - the said position being up till now elective as it has been by virtue of the concord made between the Holy See and this Crown - and that the said election might be made by the general chapter of the monks of the said congregation for a person professed and nourished in reform and regularity and of no other, I write you this letter to tell you that I would have great pleasure if you would ask the Pope in my name for confirmation of the right to hold the election that I accorded to the monks, without obliging them to pay the rights of annata [tithes of office] because of the poverty and destitution of the said abbey, in which you would make me happy." Dom Gregorian Tarisse was elected as Dupont's successor and given the title of Superior-General, the first to hold that office. He was an important leader and strictly maintained the Maurists as an all-French order. When his years as leader ended, the group included over 80 monasteries.
