Anne moved to Paris following the death of her father in 1672, taking with her notes which she had been accumulating on the text of Callimachus. Her initial success in printing this edition owed something both to her family connections and her own innate talent - at the same time she was offered work by the editor of the Delphin editions, who had known her father - but this edition, together with her translation of Anacreon in 1681, established her as an academic in her own right and her reputation only grew thereafter.

        A corner-stone laid towards the building of a new colledge (that is to say, a new body of Physicians) in London, upon occasion of the vexatious and oppressive proceedings acted in the name of the Society called the colledge of Physicians: For the better information of all men, as well as of physicians, chirurgians, and apothecaries, touching the unhappy estate of the art of physick, here in England.

      London. Printed for the author. 1675 - 4to. [2],38pp. Rebound in quarter calf, marbled boards. Title page a bit dusted otherwise a very good copy. Wing H 3858. Wellcome III, 323. Krivatsky 6124. Concerning a dispute between Huyberts, a physician, and the College of Physicians, whom he accuses of operating a monopoly. Huyberts cured a merchant who had been given up as a hopeless case by members of the College. The Collegians became angry, declaring "they would rather have him died, than that I, being none of their society, should have cured him" and proceeded to bring an action against him. There follows a long attack upon the College, their supposed anatomical discoveries, their bogus cures etc. (He quotes the opinion of Boyle in support of his position) and concludes that the College has done nothing to advance and much to impede the cause of medical progress. Towards the end of the pamphlet Huyberts inserts some autobiographical information from which we learn that he was brought up in Ireland and was trained at Trinity College under Jacob Rickman. He practised in Dublin for seven years and was made a free-man of the city. After a spell in Europe he returned to London where he gave free medicine and medical assistance to the poor. The College, he says, were shamed into proscribing "Bills of Direction to the Sick Poor," but with the proviso that the apothecaries should give the medicines free. Such charity at the expense of others was deservedly laughed at. The college, having had enough of Huyberts, set about putting him out of business. This pamphlet is the sole edition of the only work Huyberts is known to have produced. It provoked a prompt reply on behalf of the College by C. Goddall entitled The College of Physicians vindicated, and the true state of physick in this nation faithfully represented: an answer to a scandalous pamphlet, entitled The Cornerstone. (Wing G1090).

        BY THE KING. A PROCLAMATION FOR PROHIBITING THE IMPORTATION OF COMMODITIES OF EUROPE INTO ANY OF HIS MAJESTIES PLANTATIONS IN AFRICA, ASIA, OR AMERICA, WHICH WERE NOT LADEN IN ENGLAND, AND FOR PUTTING ALL OTHER LAWS RELATING TO THE TRADE OF THE PLANTATIONS, IN EFFECTUAL EXECUTION [caption title].

      London. 1675. - Broadside, 22 x 14 1/2 inches, printed on two sheets. Old fold lines. Repaired with tissue on verso along vertical fold. A few other small tears or tissue repairs. Very good. A rare broadside, announcing the decree of the English government that all foreign goods destined for British colonies must first pass through England, a policy of mercantilism later termed the "triangle trade." "This program permitted the profits from colonial trade and commerce to center in England, promoted British shipping, and enabled the British government to support itself by taxing this trade as it flowed through England" (DAH III:374). The English government began its mercantilist policies under the Commonwealth government, in a series of "navigation acts" which regulated English trade. The first Navigation Act, passed in 1651, targeted Dutch commerce. It stipulated that only English ships could carry freight into English territories, and that if a ship was not English, then it could only carry goods from the country from whence it hailed - i.e., Dutch ships could only import Dutch goods, etc. Further Acts passed in 1660 and 1663, under the Restoration government of Charles II, isolated trade even further, mandating that British colonial goods only be imported to England and forbidding English trade on anything other than English vessels. This policy of trade, which was continued for the next two hundred years, marked the ascent of British colonial mercantilism and planted the seeds of discontent which resulted in the American Revolution one hundred years later. The present proclamation is an enforcement of the Navigation Act of 1663 (An Act for the Encouragement of Trade), under which "no commodities of the growth, production or manufacture of Europe, shall be imported into any land, island, plantation, colony, territory or place to his Majesty belonging". In other words, all European trade to the American and East Indian colonies of the English had to pass through English ports en route. As the law is being disobeyed, to the detriment of trade and tax revenue, the proclamation extends power for enforcement to the officials of the realm. It states: "whereas his Majesty is well informed, that notwithstanding the said Act of Parliament, great quantities of other commodities.have been, and are daily imported into several of his colonies, plantations, and territories, in Asia, Africa and America.and that his Majesties subjects of some of his colonies, and plantations, have not onely [sic] supplied themselves with such commodities not shipped in England.but have conveyed them by land and water, to other of his Majesties colonies and plantations, to the great prejudice of his Majesties customs, and of the trade and navigation of this kingdom." An important proclamation which illustrates the difficulty in maintaining and enforcing the laws central to the first British Empire. ESTC R25339. WING C3378. GOLDSMITHS' 2112. STEELE I:3619.

        A New & Exact Map of Europe...

      Henry OvertonA New & Exact Map of Europe...London: 1738Hand-colored copper-plate engraving 56" x 62 ?" framedEnglish cartography rose to prominence at the turn of the 18th century, and one of Britain’s most celebrated cartographers was Henry Overton. One of seven children, Henry Overton was born in 1675/6. His father, John Overton, was an illustrious London publisher specializing in cartographic prints. Through industriousness and business acumen John Overton had managed to acquire his stock of plates, as well as his own shop, from Peter Stent in 1665, after Stent died from the plaque. In 1700, John acquired John Speed’s plates from Christopher Browne, who in turn had purchased them from Bassett and Chiswell. Henry inherited the business and all its holdings in 1707. An adept business man himself, Henry successfully managed his father’s contracts, as well as added new enterprises to the family publishing firm. Not limited to cartography, Henry also published the more popular prints of the day on topics such as horse racing and hunting. He reissued John Speed’s County Maps in 1713 and 1743, a Plan of London in 1739, and contributed to Bowen’s Royal Atlas in 1763. Despite Overton’s excellent credentials, many of his works were cheaply distributed by other lesser known printers reappearing in pamphlets and rag sheets. It wasn’t until 1735 when the first copyright laws were established in England that such practices were curtailed.A New & Exact Map of Europe With the Prospect of Its Principal Citys After The Latest and Best Obseruations is one of Overton’s splendid creations. This highly ornamental wall map shows Europe during the time of Louis XIV. Europe is flanked by sixteen large detailed views of important cities: London, Rome, Paris, Amsterdam, Constantinople, Lisbon, Seville, Antwerp, Venice, Frankfurt, Prague, Cologne, Copenhagen, Kracow, and Danzig. Richly detailed and hand colored, this expansive European map is a historical picture of Europe’s political, and social climate during the 1700’s. Engraved any earlier or later then 1738 and Overton’s view of Europe might have looked very different. In the seventeenth century The Thirty Years War carved out the main ruling powers and their subsequent territories in Germany.? Just twenty years before this map was engraved England, the Dutch Republic, and France were involved in the Wars of Spanish Succession over who would take over the Spanish Throne. Overton’s Europe is that of Louis XIV’s, the longest ruling monarch in history (72 years). Made during a the century that saw the culmination of thought and reason through the Enlightenment, as well as political change through the French Revolution, Overton’s map is an excellent historical resource in its reflection of the current state of Europe. One can see that in Northern Europe, Finland has yet to become an autonomous country; it is still part of Sweden.? Overton’s eye for detail has included an exceptional number of cities and geographical features. The whole is enclosed within a richly colored, highly decorative floral border. Overton includes an inset over “Part of Africa,” which states, “Printed and Sold by Henry Overton at the White Horse. . . Newgate London.” This workshop had also been his father’s and was considered to be the most notable and powerful print seller in London. While is it unclear when this map was published, it must have been sometime after Henry’s succession into the family business in 1707. As a wall map its survival and exceptional quality is rare. Most maps were printed in bound form, thus protecting them for environmental factors, like light and humidity, as well as carelessness. Overton’s large map survives with its vivid original color in pristine condition. Not only does this map provide the collector a historically important map of Europe, it is a fine showcase for the cartographic engraving skills of Henry Overton and his workshop.

        Debtor and Creditor Made Easie:

      London: Printed by J. R.,, 1675. A short Instruction for the attaining the Right Use of Accounts after the Best Method used by Merchants. ... Small quarto (190 x 144 mm). 19th century sheep-backed dark brown cloth with contemporary dark brown speckled calf preserved and laid on top of boards, titles to spine gilt on dark red morocco label. Engraved frontispiece portrait and decorative woodcut headpieces throughout. Ownership inscription of John Norburn to front free endpaper, sporadical ink marginalia. Spine lightly rubbed with minor wear to ends, front inner hinge partially cracked but holding firm, mild foxing to endpapers, text block margins occasionally foxed and stained. First edition. Stephen Monteage (1623-1687) first wrote his discourse on accounting techniques in 1659–61 and it was the first such treatise to address a more general audience, rather than a wealthy elite. "Most of the writings on accounting then available were written for wealthy merchants, who kept a variety of journals, cash books, petty-charge lists, and invoice registers. Ordinary people were not familiar with such procedures, and if they kept accounts at all they probably used a charge-discharge system. Monteage's treatise addressed middle-class merchants. They were advised to keep detailed accounts in a simplified system, based only upon two records, a 'waste' book, or record of first entry, and a general ledger, where these entries were reconciled in a double-entry system" (ODNB).

        [On front wrapper:] Dissegno per la fabrica della Libreria Canonicale. [Verona, ca. 1720/25]. Folio (38.5 x 25.5 cm). With 4 architectural drawings, 3 double-page (ca. 37 x 50 cm at a scale of about 1:60) and 1 loosely inserted full-page (24 x 35 cm at a scale of about 1:107), skillfully drawn in brown ink and several shades of grey watercolour. Two of the double-page drawings are elevations (1 partly in cross-section), the other 2 drawings are floor plans, each plan with a folding flap tipped on showing the plan of a higher level. Contemporary stiff paper wrappers.

      The original designs for the alterations to the chapter library at Verona, situated in the Church of St. Helena, abutting the famous Cathedral of San Zeno (the common wall appears in the drawings). The alteration was ordered by Scipione Maffei (1675-1755) and Jacopo(?) Muselli and executed by the architect Lodovico Perini; it was finished in 1726. In 1713 Maffei, a leading scholar, poet and man of letters, had made a remarkable discovery in the library: in its old cupboards he found late-classical and early Christian manuscripts from the 5th to 9th century, stored there centuries earlier, apparently to protect them against danger of flooding of the river Adige. On the basis of these old manuscripts and helped by the Canon Carlo Carinelli, Maffei formulated a completely new and epoch-making theory regarding the development of the Latin script in three variants: the Roman majuscule, the minuscule and the cursive hand, showing an uninterrupted evolution from Roman Antiquity to the Renaissance. Maffei published the results of his studies in his Istoria diplomatica (1727) and Verona illustrata (1742). The rediscovery of these old manuscripts also resulted in a revival of Patristic studies and many new editions of the works of the Church Fathers.With some faint stains near the fore-edges (an one edge of the loosely inserted drawing) and a couple rust spots in the paper, but still in very good condition.

        A Treatise of Humane Reason. London: printed for Henry Brome, 1675.

      - 12mo, [iv], 91 pp., contemporary panelled calf, rebacked, a very good copy from the Library of the Earls of Macclesfield, with the armorial Sapere Aude bookplate and blindstamps to the first two leaves. Second edition of a controversial work first published the previous year, by Martin Clifford (b. 1624), who was Master of the Charterhouse from 1671 until his death in 1677. 'In 1674 Clifford published anonymously in London A Treatise of Humane Reason, which stirred up a ten-year controversy by advancing the hypothesis of salvation even for an honest erring conscience. It was frequently reprinted. Not long after its publication Bishop Benjamin Laney of Ely dined with many ‘persons of quality’ in the Charterhouse, when he was asked about his opinion on that book. Undoubtedly unaware that he was in the presence of its author, the bishop answered that "twas no matter if all the copies were burnt and the author with them, knowing by what he had read in the book that the author makes every man's private fancy judge of religion". In 1682 the Unitarian author William Popple published a French translation of Clifford's treatise introduced by a longer preface justifying the opinions in it, with the title Traité de la raison humaine traduit de l'anglois. This aroused great interest among the Huguenot refugees in Holland' (ODNB). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

" Ouvrage d'un interet exceptionnel. Il aborde tous les secteurs de l'agriculture et constitue a la fois une mise au point sur les connaissances de l'epoque et un manuel utile pour faire fonctionner un domaine agricole. Ecrit dans un style inimitable, nourri de citations empruntees aux auteurs classiques et aux dictons populaires, il reussit le tour de force d'interesser les lettres et les notables. L'engouement pour le 'Theatre d'agriculture' ne se dementira pas au cours de siecles " Ce traite est egalement important pour l'histoire de l'alimentation: il traite du pain et des legumes (II), du vin (III), du fromage (IV); le huitieme lieu est consacre a "l'usage des aliments": les provisions (chap. 1), la boulangerie, la salaison des viandes, conservation des fruits, les confitures (chap. 2), la distillation (chap. 4), les recettes de vins (Bibliographie en ligne, olivier-de-serres.org, Editions du 'Theatre', n°19. Cf. 'En Francais dans le texte', n° 79. Vicaire, 'Bibliographie gastronomique', p. 789). Bon exemplaire..
