About Patric Simon: He was born at Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, on 8 September 1626, and attended Boston Grammar School. He entered Queens College, Cambridge, in 1644,[1] and after taking orders in 1651 became successively chaplain to Sir Walter St. John and vicar of Battersea, Surrey. He was afterwards (1662) preferred to the rectory of St. Paul's, Covent Garden, London, where he continued to labor during the plague. He was appointed dean of Peterborough in 1679, and Bishop of Chichester in 1689, in which year he was employed, along with others of the new bishops, to settle the affairs of the Church in Ireland. In 1691 he was translated to the see of Ely, which he held until his death on the 31st of May 1707. Works[edit] His sermons and devotional writings are numerous, and his Commentary on the Historical and Poetical Books of the Old Testament, in 10 vols., going as far as the Song of Solomon, was reprinted in the 1810 Critical Commentary on the Old and New Testaments and Apocrypha, with works Richard Arnald Moses Lowman William Lowth, and Daniel Whitby.[2] Patrick's Friendly Debate between a Conformist and a Nonconformist was a controversial tract, defending the Five Mile Act.[2] It excited considerable feeling at the time of its publication in 1668. Among replies was one from Samuel Rolle as Philagathus.[3] He also contributed to a volume of Poems upon Divine and Moral Subjects (1719). The first collected edition of his works appeared at Oxford in 1858 (9 vols.), edited by Alexander Taylor; a small Autobiography was published also at Oxford in 1839.[2] (source: Wikipedia)

        The adventures of (Mr T. S.) an English merchant, taken prisoner by the Turks of Algiers, and carried into the inland countries of Africa: with a description of the kingdom of Algiers, of all the towns and places of note thereabouts. Whereunto is added a relation of the chief commodities of the countrey, and of the actions and manners of the people. Written first by the author, and fitted for the publick view by A. Roberts.

      London, (William Wilson and) Moses Pitt, 1670.. Small 8vo. (8), 252 [but 254], (2) pp. (includes final leaf of ads). Contemporary calf, rebacked.. First edition of this extraordinary account of an Englishman's capture by Barbary pirates and subsequent adventures as a slave in Algeria. The narrative is framed as an authentic journal of a deceased traveller, prepared for the press by a friend of the departed. Through this mechanism the reader is taken into a proto-novelistic fantasy, albeit one that must have been informed by genuine experience of Eastern travel. As a slave under numerous masters the author tricks his way variously into employment as the cook to the King of Algiers, is then demoted to Keeper of the King's Bath and secretly fathers a daughter with one of the King's wives. After an unsuccessful stint as a gardener's assistant he journeys in the service of an officer, collecting tribute money with the Algerian army and offers his services as an advisor to the Ottoman governor of Tlemcen. He recounts observations on the various peoples encountered and their customs and peculiarities, marvelling at flying serpents, lions and ostriches and skirmishing with an army of Arabs. Against a backdrop of mosques, minarets and palaces, the narrative is peppered with anecdotes of meetings with Barbary pirates, European renegados, and dalliances with alluring women of the Maghreb. - The author takes particular relish in recounting the details of his sexual adventures: "the women in this country keep much at home, but their minds and affections are more wandering abroad, because they are so recluse; whereas if they had as much liberty as in other countries they would not be so furiously debauch'd: their husbands keep strict guard over them, that when they can escape their eyes, they give the reins to their passion, and labour to satisfy themselves more abundantly; stolen waters are sweet: the more they are forbidden and hindered from variety, the more pleasure and satisfaction they fancy in it [...] had my design been to make conquests in the Empire of Love, I think none could have been more happy [...] this good opinion of my ability spread & increased wonderfully in the town [...]". A separate appended section offers directions for navigating the Barbary coast. This work is of value both as a travel narrative and as a proto-novel reflecting the European fascination with the Orient. This is one of four journeys undertaken by Englishmen in the Ottoman Mediterranean analysed recently by Gerald Maclean in his 2004 study "The rise of Oriental travel: English visitors to the Ottoman Empire, 1580-1720". - Provenance: small stamp of Bibliotheque Generale, Rabat, to title, first leaf of dedication, and first leaf of text. Small ownership stamp of Alexander Gardyne, 1883, to verso of title. Manuscript bookplate of Henry White, Lichfield, 1820, to pastedown. A very good copy. - Playfair, Morocco, 244. Playfair, Algeria, 155. Pforzheimer, 846. Wing S152. Not in Blackmer or Atabey.

Die Tafeln meist mit Ansichten, darunter Batavia, Kioto, Kagoshima, Osaka und Tokyo. Die Karte der Route von Nagasaki nach Osaka (Walter 102) ohne die Zusätze in frz. Sprache, wie sie bei Walter abgebildet sind. "Exceedingly rare. The plates to this work represent a high-water mark in book illustrations of the 17th century. Apart from these, this book remains one of the most curious of the numerous works of travel in the Orient during the 17th century. Among the subjects discussed are the following: Murder in Japan, Japanese wrestlers, Japanese baths, jugglers and necromancers, burning of widows, women-raping by baboons, blood-baths, Japanese tortures, boiling waters of Singok, gardens, Japanese wines, whaling in Japan etc." (Cox). Complete copy with engraved additional title as frontispiz, 25 engraved maps, plans, and plates, all double-page or folding plates, 70 engraved illustrations.

        Portails d'Eglise a Italienne nouvellement invente par Jean le Pautre.

      - (No place, no publisher, no date). Complete series of very fine etched title and 5 plates, showing church façades in the Italian manner, with scales of measurements. ca. 21,5 x 14,7 cm on leaves of ca. 29,3 x 18,4 cm.*Not in Fuhring, I.F.F., or any of the other usual bibliographies (kind information of Dr Peter Fuhring). Unrecorded edition. An unknown engraver copied the plates in reverse from the original series, which was invented and etched by Jean Lepautre (first edition Paris, ca. 1670). In the original series five of the plates are divided into a left-hand and right-hand side, showing variants of the proposed façades. In the present series the façades are symmetric, so left-hand and right-hand side are the same. Also different from the original series is the fact that in our series NONE of the façades is placed against a sky. For the original series compare I.F.F. XVII, 12, Nos. 2120 - 2121, 2124 - 2125. Beautiful baroque designs for church façades in two stories, adorned with statues, balustrades, 3 plates with domes above the crossing. Invented by the famous French architect and ornament designer Jean Lepautre (Paris 1618 - 1682). - Stain in blank margin of 2 leaves, lightly browned; nice set with ample margins.[(4471)] [Attributes: First Edition]

        Valerius Maximus cum selectis variorum observat et nova recensione A. Thysii.

      Lugd. Batavorum Ex Officina Hackiana 1670 - 8vo, 180 x 113 mms., pp. [xvi], 844 [845 - 876 Index], including engraved title-page. BOUND WITH: Cornelius Nepotis. Vitae Excellentium Imperatorum, Observationibus ac Notis variorum Uberioribus illustratae, Accurante, Roberto Keuchenio ICto et Historiarum Professore. Lugd. Vatav. et Roterod. Ex Officiana Hackiana 1667. 8v9,m 180 x 113 mms., pp. [xxiv], 377 [378 - 392 Index, including engraved title-page. 2 volumes in 1, bound in contemporary vellum, with yapp edges, with the autograph "Wilhelm von Samson/ Bevall 1800" on the verso of the front free end-paper; spine a little soiled, but a very good copy. The anecdotes and memorable sayings of the rhetorician Valerius (fl. 14AD - 57AD) were popular with later orators and historains; the earliest publication of his works was in Mainz in 1471; the editor, Antoine Thysius (1603 - 1665) was the son of the Dutch theologian of the same name (1556 - 1640) and professor of poetry at the University of Harderwijk. Cornelius Nepos' lives of roman generals was a popular work, and this edition by Robertus Keuchenius (1636 - 1673) is one of many works by him. Dirk Van Miert, in Humanism in an Age of Science: The Amsterdam Athenaeum in the Golden Age (2009) amusingly notes "One has the impression that the ambitions of Robertus Keuchenius.were successful only because he knew how to network. in 1660 he dedicated a hymn to Professor Klenckius to congratulate him on his knighthood. He also addressed a congratulatory poem (1660) to recently re-crowned King Charles II of England." This is the first appearance of his edition of Cornelius; it was republished in 1667.

        FODINÆ REGALES. OR THE HISTORY, LAVVS AND PLACES OF THE CHIEF MINES AND MINERAL WORKS IN ENGLAND, WALES AND . . . IRELAND

      London: Printed by H. L. and R. B. for Thomas Basset, 1670. FIRST EDITION . Hardcover. Given by the Author to the "Popish Plot" Judge. 289 x 187 mm (11 3/8 x 7 3/8"). 8 p.l., 108 pp., [4] leaves. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary ruled but unlettered sprinkled calf, corners restored, flat spine rebacked retaining most of original backstrip, pastedowns now raised up. With two half-page engraved coats of arms, frontispiece portrait of the author engraved by William Sherwin, and two full-page engravings of mine works. Front free endpaper with signature of Tho. Walcot of Bitterley, title page with authorial presentation inscription, "Tho. Walcot ex dono Authoris"; front free endpaper with book label of J. A. Freilich (see below for both Walcot and Freilich); front flyleaf with large flourished initials of "J. B." and with signature (beginning with those initials) scratched out. Duveen, p. 468; Hoover 634; Kress 1270; Wing P-1809. Boards a little splayed, front cover with large stain to half the leather, rear board with a dozen tiny wormholes, other minor defects in the covers, but the binding sound, lustrous, and not at all displeasing. Full-page illustrations slightly trimmed at tail edge--despite the fact that margins are remarkably ample everywhere else--isolated rust spots or minor smudges and stains (frontispiece a bit more significantly stained, though only in the margins), other trivial imperfections, but AN UNUSUALLY FRESH, BRIGHT, AND CLEAN COPY INTERNALLY. This work, whose title translates as "Royal Mines," begins by answering the question "What is a mine?" and proceeds from there to discuss the minerals extracted, the costs of the operations, and the laws governing mines and minerals, arranged by the monarch who signed them. It concludes with a glossary defining terms relating to mines and minerals. This is the first work on mineralogy by the natural philosopher and politician Sir John Pettus (1613-90), who went on to publish the better-known (and more commonly seen) "Fleta Minor" in 1683. According to the DNB, "Pettus's interest in metallurgy and mining led to hi[s] becoming a member of the Society of Mines Royal and Battery Works in 1651 and he acted as deputy governor of the royal mines from then until his death, apart from one brief interval. He was elected a fellow of the Royal Society in 1663." The inscriptions at the beginning of the book indicate that our copy was originally in the library of attorney and judge Sir Thomas Walcot (1629-85), whose family home was Bitterley Court. Walcot presided over the trial of the perjurer Titus Oates, who fabricated a story, commonly called the "Popish Plot," indicating that Catholics were plotting to kill King Charles II to put his Catholic brother James on the throne. Joseph A. Freilich amassed probably the finest mineralogy library formed in the 20th century, and copies from that collection are well known for their superior condition (the books were sold at Sotheby's in New York in 2001).

Many currently in print copies are for sale by Internet booksellers. This first edition from 1670 is exceptionally rare. The book is disbound, the boards present but unattached and the spine is worn. Title page is browned at margins and has some chipping at edges, also an owner's inscription in a fine hand in brown ink, in French. The book block is solid and internally the book is very nice without staining or foxing, except for a tear in the bottom corner of one leaf with a slight loss of text. An old brown ink stain is on the paper edges as seen in pic but the stain does not extend beyond the edges into the margins of the paper.

        The Late Travels of S. Giacomo Baratti, an Italian Gentleman, Into the Remote Countries of the Abissins, or of Ethiopia Interior

      London: Benjamin Billingsley, 1670. [6], 191, 200-238pp, [2].

Externally fine, internally lightly browned throughout, lacks initial blank. Previous owners gift inscription to ffep, to 'Alfred Edward Pease from Edward North Buxton Oct. 1900, to take with him to Abyssinia' (both were Liberal politicians). Purportedly a translation from the 'original', it seems very likely that this is an imaginary voyage, with Bent Juel-Jensen describing it as "very fishy", and Job Ludolf in his 'Ad Suam Historiam Aethiopicam Commentarius' describing the book as fiction (see Bent Juel-Jensen in 'The Book Collector' Winter 1981). Estc R11736, Wing B677. First Edition. Full Goatskin. Good+. 16mo.

        TYRANNICK LOVE, OR THE ROYAL MARTYR. A TRAGEDY

      London: Printed for H. Herringman, at the sign of the Blew Anchor in the Lower Walk of the New Exchange, 1670. First edition. First issue with original leaf F3 intact. Quarto (215 x 170 mm), collates: title, [8], 66, [1]. Signatures: A4, a2, B-I4, K2. Lacking leaf A1, the blank preceding the title page. Bound in marbled wraps to style. Title page with some pulp fills, mainly along inner margin. Other pages with inner marginal worming, rarely affecting the text. Page 64 with lower corner missing, affecting final four lines with loss of a few words.

Nell Gwyn (aka Ellen Guyn), mistress of Charles II, originated the role of Valeria, the tyrant's daughter. The rather pious and stately tragedy ends with a truly Restoration flourish, when stagehands come onstage to carry off the dead Valeria's corpse at the play's curtain and Gwyn jumps up to deliver "what must be the most amusing epilogue ever written" (Maximillian E. Novak, "The Works of John Dryden," University of California, 1970), chiding the "damn'd dull Poet" for killing her off and mocking his "godly out-of-fashion Play."

        The Shepherd of Banbury's Rules to Judge of the Changes of the Weather, Grounded on Forty Years Experience: To which is Added a Rational Account of the Causes of such Alterations, the Nature of the Wind, Rain, Snow?

      8vo, later cloth backed marbled boards, [2], viii, 64 pp. Binding worn, splitting at joins with some tears on the spine, normal aging, but internally very good. This work was first published in 1670 as "The Shepherd's Legacy." Although it is unsure who the shepherd of Branbury was, it is possible that it was John Claridge. The OCLC repeating from the introduction of G.H.T. Kimble indicates that in the 1946 edition, the author refers to himself as John in the original edition. It is believed that in the present edition, additions have been made anonymously by John Campbell (ESTC T12185). Claridge talks about the benefits of understanding the weather, and describes some of the tools that are used for that purpose in his introduction, including the value of observation. However, the main purpose of his work is to share the rules that help predict the weather, such as, small and round clouds will yield fair weather for two or three days, or the chance of rain when the Moon is new.
