        Excellent and scarce Autograph Manuscript Signed, 4 pages 4to, n.p., Sept. 1877

      Very Good. This is the complete fair copy of his 12-stanza poem, "In the Old South Church". It begins, "She came and stood in the Old South Church a wonder and a sign, With a look the old time sibyls wore, half-crazed and half divine." In conclusion the final stanza is, "So long as Boston shall Boston be, and her bay-tides rise and fall, Shall freedom stand in the Old South Church And plead for the rights of all!" It is signed and dated, "John G. Whittier". This Church was founded in 1678, and is still in operation. Between 1872 and 1875 it was rebuilt on Boylston St. This poem was used as a dedication some 22 years later. It is boldly penned On four vellum pages. This first page is soiled but readable while the remainder is bold and beautiful. Quite scarce and interesting.

      Cologne [actually Amsterdam]: Jean L'Ingenu [i.e. Holland], 1678.. 248pp. [bound with:] de la Roche-Guilhen, Anne: ALMANZAIDE NOUVELLE.... Paris: Claude Barbin [i.e. Holland], 1676. 96pp. 12mo. Contemporary plain paper boards, spine renewed to style. Light wear to extremities. Very good. Evidently the first edition of this scarce work, offering three fictional tales on the theme of buccaneering and piracy in the Americas: "Histoire de Don Diego da Rivera," "Histoire de Mont-Val," and "Le destin de l'homme, ou les aventures de Don Bartelimi de la Cueba, Portugais." Significantly, these fictional tales of piracy appear in the same year and place as the greatest classic on Caribbean pirates, Alexander Esquemeling's DE AMERICAENSCHE ZEE-ROOVERS, translated into English in 1684 as THE BUCANIERS OF AMERICA. The tales here are drawn from Esquemeling and illustrate the endless appeal of piracy tales. Bound afterwards is an early edition (1676) of the novel, ALMANZAIDE..., first printed in 1674. Set in Morocco, this was the first of approximately twenty popular romances produced by the female novelist, Anne de la Roche- Guilhen (1644-1710). Another edition was printed in 1678 at Rouen. Perhaps the earliest pirate fiction, drawn from the first edition of the greatest classic in the genre. SABIN 56094.

        The Ornithology In Three Books. Wherein all the Birds Hitherto known being reduced into a Method suitable to their natures are accurately Described

      LONDON : A[ndrew]. C[lark]. for John Martyn, 1678 A fine copy in a high quality full leather binding. With title page in red and black ink; preface; text in 3 books with 2 plates of bird traps bound in, and 2 tables which serve as early identification keys; an appendix; summary of falconry; index and 78 plates of birds (including the dodo) at the rear. This is the first English edition translated from the original Latin which was published in 1676, four years after Willughby's death by his friend and colleague John Ray. It marks one of the first attempts to take a rational, scientific approach to classifying birds. It is a matter of debate, and current research, as to whether Willughby or Ray played a greater part in its development. Ray supervised the publication. The illustrations were commissioned from a number of sources and some birds are depicted twice where the initial image was not very good.This copy lacks the original endpapers - perhaps lost during the later rebinding - but is complete including the additional falconry material. There is some browning to page edges. Some of the plates have some fraying at the very edges where the paper is more fragile. This is most marked in plates LXXVI and LXXVIII - which also has a slight crease.

All this is often expressly related to the sense of the words." Walker, ed.: Robert Schumann, p. 151.

        Linguae Latinae Liber Dictionarius Quadripartitus

      1678. LITTLETON, Adam. Linguae Latinae Liber Dictionarius Quadripartitus. A Latine Dictionary, in Four Parts. I. An English-Latine. II. A Latine- Classical. III. A Latine-Proper. IV. A Latine-Barbarous. London, T. Basset, J. Wright, and R. Chiswell, [1677 and] 1678. Folio. Unpaginated. Second edition (the first was 1673) much enlarged. The English-Latin portion is as much thesaurus as dictionary. The "Latine-Classical" is a Latin-English dictionary with etymology, including Hebrew; the "Latine- Proper" is a dictionary of personal and place names; the "Latine- Barbarous" (dated 1677) contains erroneous and foreign words. A legal dictionary and tables of weights, measures, coinage, chronology etc. crown the work. In 1670 Littleton was made chaplain to Charles II. His dedication to the King explains that he has rejected much of former dictionaries which would not be of use to students. His dictionary remained in print until 1735. An engraved frontispiece (rebacked) shows the Palatine Library established by Augustus. The engraved map of Ancient Italy, and the engraved plan of Rome showing all its monuments and buildings, are both present. In an unsophisticated calf binding of the period, with plain boards, and spine in six compartments with elaborate floral tooling. Hinges cracked externally. Bookplate of Watkin Williams of Penbedw, Denbigh, probably the Welsh schoolmaster-poet who won the Eisteddfod at the Chicago World's Fair in 1893 with a poem in Welsh on George Washington. (Cordell 220. BL 612.1.13.).

        DECAMERON PHYSIOLOGICUM: Or, Ten Dialogues of Natural Philosophy

      London: J.C. for W. Crook, 1678. The First Edition of Hobbes’ final work. With the folding plate, which is frequently lacking and a figure within the text. 8vo, in full calf of proper period style, the binding with raised bands ruled in blind and a black morocco label lettered and with decorate ruled frame in gilt viii, 136, (7) (1) pp. A very fine and handsome copy, complete with the license leaf, folding plate and all ads, rarely found such. The text very clean and fresh. VERY RARE AND HOBBES’ FINAL WORK, PRODUCED AT AGE 90. Hobbes considered himself to be primarily a scientist and philosopher and only consequently a theorist of civil and ecclesiastical authority. His reputation, however, both in his own day and ours, is inextricably linked to his progressive theories in civil and church polity, despite more practical accomplishments in optical theory. DECAMERON PHYSIOLOGICUM was the final form of his mechanistic system of natural philosophy and the final word in the Wallis-Hobbes feud. "Hobbes last work of all was a new set of dialogues on physical questions, in the fashion of the earlier ones, but now with a stroke added at Wallis's doctrine of gravitation in the "De Motu". And a demonstration of the equality of a straight line to the arc of the circle was, of course, thrown in at the end, to show him true as ever to the desperate purpose that had maintained the long quarter of a century of strife." (C.G. Robertson)" On Page 116 Hobbes references Kepler, with whom he is in agreement, in a statement giving the age of the Earth. There are discussions on magnetism, vacuum, motions of air and water, gravity, optics and more.

        Traitte des Ceremonies Superstitieuses des Juifs tant Anciens que Modernes.

      Amsterdam : Chez Jacob Smith. 1678 . First Edition in French 12mo, 1 leaf, *10+1, **4, A-Z12, Aa12, Bb8, 16 ff, 531, [31], 30 pp, a false title-page inserted before that given above, old red morocco, gilt, a little worn but still sound. This is the first French translation of Spinoza's important and very controversial book "Tractatus Theologico-Politicus. [Amsterdam] 1670" in which he supports Jan de Witt's principles of tolerance and free speech. He elaborates a social-contract theory of the state and argues that a democratic society must ensure the freedom and opportunity for happiness of the individual. The anti-theocratic flavour of his argument angered the Dutch clerics but what truly outraged them, and made this book a dangerous possession, was the way that it demythologized the Holy Writ. It is for this reason that the work was 'camouflaged' with a misleading title-page. The false title reads "Reflexions curieuses d'un Esprit des-Interresse sur les Matieres Les plus Importantes au Salut, tant Public que Particulier. A Cologne: Chez Claude Emanuel. 1678". Some copies have another version of the title which reads "La Clef du sanctuaire par un scavant homme de notre siecle. Leiden 1678" See PMM 153 for the latin edition.

      Title printed in red & black & one folding engraved plate. 11 p.l., 173, [11] pp.; 49 pp.; 142 pp. Three parts in one vol. 8vo, cont. vellum over boards (binding somewhat soiled, some browning throughout due to the quality of the paper). Leipzig: J. Gross, 1678. A relatively early edition (1st ed.: 1595) of one of the rarest and most important of the Probierbüchlein; written not later than 1567, it is in this work that we find the first suggestion that tin and lead, upon heating during calcination, gain weight. This discovery was later noted and described by Jean Rey in his famously rare book of 1630 and, of course, by Lavoisier in 1772 who first correctly recognized that calcination involves combination with air. Lavoisier's conclusions marked the end of the phlogiston theory and the inauguration of a true revolution in chemistry. "Of more interest [than the earlier Probierbüchlein] is a work by Modestin Fachs, master of the mint of the Prince of Anhalt, written not later than 1567...The preface by Modestin Fachs is dated 1567 and the book was published by his son Louis Wolfgang Fachs. In this is a passage to which Jean Rey drew attention saying that in the process of cupellation the total weight of the vessel, cupel, metal, and lead increases."-Partington, II, p. 67. The second part, with separate pagination, is the Rathsames Bedencken und Erklärung Auff etlicher Rathen und Angeben, dass die Müntz-Herrn geringere Müntzen sollen schlagen lassen. This is a significant contribution to the history of monetary systems, as it describes processes for analyzing coins made of gold, silver, and various alloys. Part III, also separately paginated, is the Kurtzer Anhang, zu vorigem Probier-Büchlein. I believe this is the first appearance of this notable text in any of the editions. The plate depicts an oven used for metallurgical processes. A very good copy of an extremely rare and important book. Darmstaedter cites other editions of 1622, 1636, 1669, 1671, and 1689 (all of which are rare). ❧ Darmstaedter, Berg-, Probir- und Kunstbüchlein, pp. 191-92-"Das Buch ist ausführlicher und vielseitiger wie die älteren Probirbüchlein." Hoover, translation of De Re Metallica, p. 613. See D. McKie's edition of The Essays of Jean Rey (1951), pp. xxviii-xxix. Neville, I, p. 437. No edition in the Hoover collection. .

Eccellente erbario di questo fisico e botanico svizzero, davvero dovizioso con oltre 3400 tipi botanici rappresentati e descritti nelle loro caratteristiche fisiche, organolettiche, d'uso in farmacopea, per abbellimento e quant'altro. Ogni pagina ritiene dalle quattro alle sei icone (su due colonne) colla relativa disquisizione. Tutte queste opere (dal Pedacio Dioscoride del Mattioli agli erbari sette ed ottocenteschi) erano prima di tutto preziose guide per le preparazioni magistrali o semplici nell'arte farmaceutica ed è raro trovare siffatti testi in condizioni belle e soprattutto completi. Questo che si presenta è appunto uno di quei rarissimi casi di opera assolutamente completa, collazionata attentamente, ed in più che bello stato (davvero scarse le insignificanti mende d'uso). Sulla rarità poi, si lascia giudicare il collezionista. Alba signanda lapillo

[EN] In folio (29x20 cm) with (iv) -445 pags. Binding: contemporary flexible vellum. Copy with slight water stains faded out by time. Text printed in double column. Second Portuguese edition (first printed in 1614) of a fascinating 16th century travel book considered the most important one ever written. Inocêncio II, 285. Brunet IV, 670. 'Primiere édition [1614] de cette curieuse relation; elle est rare. Celle de Lisb. Craesbeeck, 1678, est un peu moins chère.' [EN] Mendez Pinto (1509-1583) was a Portuguese adventurer, a soldier, sailor, merchant, doctor, missionary and ambassador. He embarked to India in 1537 in a fleet commanded by the son of Vasco da Gama and traveled for 21 years, fought and traded in China, Tartary, Pegu and the neighboring countries, sailing in every sea. Mendes Pinto went to the mouth of the Mekong River and was in Japan before the arrival of St. Francis Xavier. He became later his friend and traveling companion. He traveled extensively in Asia between 1537 and 1557.In 1542 helanded in Japan and gained the favor of a feudal lord, to whom they claim to have given the first firearm to have entered Japan, the Portuguese "arquebus". This is the source of Pinto's claim to be the first westerner to enter Japan.The weapon was rapidly reproduced and had a major impact on the ongoing Japanese civil wars. He is credited for the opening up of Indo-China trade.He joined the Society of Jesus and St. Francis gave him the money with which to build the first Jesuit establishment in Japan. Mendez accompanied the Jesuits as ambassador from the Portuguese Viceroy of India to the King of Bungo. While a number of the details of his work are obviously taken from other accounts, such as the visits to Ethiopia and Tibet, the total picture given of Asia in the first half of the 16th century has undoubted authenticity. This is one of the greatest books by a European traveler in the East and is a classic of Portuguese literature. Location/localizacao: raros

I tracta geralmente da descripção do paiz, e de suas provincias, sitio, e qualidades: a II do seu governo, e do tocante ás pessoas e costumes de seus habitadores: a III em fim do que diz respeito á cultura evangelica, e introducção do christianismo no imperio. Foi tão bem aceita esta relação, que todas as nações da Europa se apressaram a transportal a para os seus idiomas, o que se prova pelas traducções que d’ella se fizeram, a saber: Em italiano com o titulo: Relazione della grande monarchia della Cina, Roma 1643. 4.º, adornada com o retrato do auctor, e reimpressa ibi, 1653. 4.º - Em francez, com o titulo Histoire universelle du grand royaume de la Chine composée en italien par le P.

        Kirchen-Geschichte, das ist: Catholisches Christenthum durch die ganze Welt auszgebreitet, Insonderheit bey nächst verflossenen, und anjetzo fliessenden Jahr-hundert

      1678 - An important chronic on the Jesuit Missions all over the World. 1678 – 1701. Viena. Leopold Voigt. Two volumes in folio (292 mm x 195 mm; 327 mm x 223 mm). [10] + 1-666 + [16] pp. + 2 plates (1 folded); frontispiece + [14] + 1-606 + [28] pp.; [14] + 1-220 + [2] + 1-159 + [22] pp.; frontispiece + [12] + 1-304 + [8] + 5-284 + [24] pp. Contemporary non-uniform blindstamped pigskin over wooden boards, raised bands to spine, lettered in ink; some minor rubbing, clasps lacking (condition is uniform, possibly a made-up set from the beginning). Occasional light staining and a few leaves with small repairs (loss of some words on one repair; larger repair to pictorial frontispiece to Vol. III), engravings in very fine condition and in strong impressions. The first edition, Kerkelijke Historie van de geeheele Wereldt, came out in Antwerp between 1667 and 1671, and was subsequently translated into German and added to by other Jesuit historians. The work contains information on the Jesuit missions around the World, mainly focused on America and Asia –deals in remarkable length the missions of Brazil and Paraguay. It is handsomely illustrated with numerous half-page engravings in strong impressions. “Pages 311 to 457 are occupied with the Jesuit Missions among the Indians of Peru, Brazil, Mexico, Florida, Canada, Paraguay, and Maragnan [Island of St. Louis, a French colony off the coast of Brazil]. This portion of the work is illustrated with eighteen full-page copper-plate engravings, of which seven are portraits of Indians of each of the named countries, and eleven represent the martyrdom of the missionaries by the natives. These plates are beautifully drawn and engraved, and exhibit, with the most vivid and painful fidelity, the various forms of torture and massacre endured by the missionaries and their converts. The account of the missions in Florida and Canada fills thirty-four pages. One of the pages in this part of the work represents the martyrdom of Father Jogues and two French associates by the Mohawks; another exhibits the tortures by which Fathers Brebœuf and Lallemant were killed in Canada; and a third the murder of Fathers Daniel and Garnier by the Indians of the same country” (Field, 673). Hazart (1617-1690) was a Dutch Jesuit, author, historian and orator. His life was almost exclusively devoted to the struggle against the Calvinists of the Low Countries, but his real forte was writing. This universal church history is considered his greatest work; it deals with the Jesuit missions and missionaries in Asia, Africa, America and Europe. Among the fine engravings is a complex allegorical image, which visually suggests the goal of the Jesuit missions to expand throughout the world. In this engraving, a Mohul, an American Indian, and a Chinese are before a personified Church wearing the papal tiara and putti bearing a shield with the IHS motif. “Hazart divided his work into regional histories: Japanese, Chinese, Mughal, Vijayanagara, Abyssinian, African, Peruvian, Paraguayan, Brazilian, Floridian, Canadian, Mexican.” (Luke Clossey, Salvation and Globalization in the Early Jesuit Missions, 2008, p. 216).

        POEMS by the most deservedly admired MRS KATHERINE PHILIPS, the matchless ORINDA. To which is added Monsieur Corneilles POMPEY & HORACE tragedies, with several other translations out of French

      London, Printed by T. N for Henry Herringman, 1678.. Third authorised folio edition, 1678. 4to, 290 x 180 mm, 11½ x 7 inches, frontispiece portrait engraved by William Faithorne, pages (34), 198; (8), 124, separate dated title pages for the 2 plays which follow the poems, bound in contemporary full calf, blind ruled border with small ornament at corners, raised bands with gilt decoration in compartments, gilt lettered morocco label to spine, edges marbled. Light pitting to surface of covers, spine rubbed, small repair at head of spine, very small chip to head of upper hinge and tiny chip to tail of spine, tiny crack at head and tail of lower hinge, armorial bookplate to front pastedown, fore-edge margin of frontispiece trimmed, 2 very small closed margin tears, neatly repaired, another closed tear due to a paper flaw runs from the top edge to the first line of text, neatly repaired with no loss of text, contents clean and bright, binding tight and firm. A very good copy of a scarce book. Katherine Philips (1632-1664) the noted female poet, is remembered chiefly today for her accounts in her poems of her friendships with women. Her version of Corneille's tragedy La Mort de Pompee was first published in her lifetime in 1663. This was followed by an unauthorised 8vo edition of her poems shortly before her premature death from smallpox in 1664. This was withdrawn a few days after it appeared as having been inaccurately printed. The authorised (in folio) edition was prepared for publication by Katherine's friend Sir Charles Cotterell, Charles II's Master of Ceremonies and included the tragedy Pompey and the previously unpublished Horace. This was first published in 1667 and was obviously popular as reprints appeared in 1669, 1678, and 1710, remarkable for a dead female poet of that period. The translations of French poems and one Italian poem run from page 170 to 198, pagination restarts for the Corneille tragedies. The bookplate bears the name Hans Sloane Esqr. most likely that of the great nephew of Sir Hans Sloane the famous natural history collector whose bequest of books and artifacts formed the foundation of the British Museum.

        Odaterat egenhändigt skrivet och undertecknat brev till Anna Maria Gyldenklou.

      23x18 cm. (3) s. och adressida. Har varit vikt. Med några små revor i vikningen. Med Erik Lindschölds röda lacksigill. Har tillhört Christofer Eichhorn och ur autografsamlingen på Segersjö.. Brevskrivaren, som ligger sjuk i feber om vilken "doctoren gifver godt hopp om bättring", ger råd till Anna Maria Gyldenklou (död 1678), som han kallar "syster" rörande styckehandel då brukspatronerna synes ha ingivit ett och annat besvär och krig "gör handlen både osäker och swår". Sannolikt skrivet efter hennes man Börje Olofsson Cronbergs död 1673 och möjligen efter krigsutbrottet 1675. Cronberg hade varit ekonomiskt nära lierad med Lindschölds svärfar Isak Cronström, bl.a. rörande tillverkning av kanoner. Statsmannen, skalden och mecenaten Erik Lindschöld (1634-90) var bl.a. informator åt blivande Karl XII, president i lagkommissionen och Lunds akademis kansler. Han är ett lysande exempel på hur en oadlig man under svensk stormaktstid kunde nå rikets högsta positioner

Wahrscheinlich vor 1654 war er Cellerar und Instruktor der Laienbrüder. Vom 8. Mai 1654 bis 20. August 1655 war er Unterpfarrer. Für P. Basil wurde er den 20. März 1655 Kustos; als solcher suchte er im Auftrage des Abtes 1659 die Gebeine des hl. Adelrich, die durch den Abt selbst am 16. Mai 1659 erhoben wurden. Im Januar des folgenden Jahres kam er als Kustos weg und wurde, mehr aushilfsweise, am 7. August 1660 Pfarrer in Sarmenstorf, wo sonst das Stift einen Weltgeistlichen setzte. Bald darauf wurde er Pfarrer von Einsiedeln, welchen Posten er bis zum 17. Juli 1665 innehatte. Dann kam er als Pfarrer nach Ittendorf. Von dort ging er nach Münsterlingen und kehrte den 10. März 1671 ins Kloster zurück. Jedenfalls war er damals schon kränklich, denn am 9. August 1671 suchte er das Pfäferserbad auf. Doch versah er noch das Amt eines Brüderinstruktors. Kurze Zeit war er auch Präses der Rosenkranzbruderschaft. Schon am 9. August 1672 starb er an Auszehrung, Asthma und einem Steinleiden. «Ein sehr eyfriger Prediger und Beichtvater, in welcher Aempteren Verwaltung er jederweilen mit grossem ruhm, tamquam lucerna super candelabrum geleuchtet».

November 1670 Cellerar und den 28. November Brüderinstruktor, doch nur bis zum 11. April 1671, dann wurde er Küchenmeister. Seit dem 11. März 1671 war er auch Beichtiger in der Au. Den 22. April 1674 nahm er an den Translationsfeierlichkeiten der hl. Flora in Arth teil. Den 29. Januar 1674 ernannte ihn der Abt zum Kustos und betraute ihn den 13. Dezember 1675 mit der Aufsicht im Chore, solange P. Subprior den altern Fratres Unterricht zu erteilen hatte. Den 5. August 1677 besuchte er seinen totkranken Vater. Am 3. November 1677 nahm er an den Translationsfeierlichkeiten des hl. Bonifaz in Steinen teil. Den 30. August 1680 wurde er als Kustos zur Messe in Zurzach geschickt, um dort auf die Engelweihe und die Translation der hl. Leiber für die Sakristei einzukaufen. Wiederum mußte er den 4. März 1681 in Geschäften der Sakristei nach Rapperswil und von dort, auf Ansuchen des Bischofs von Chur, nach Weesen, um im dortigen Dominikanerinnenkloster die Orgel zu stimmen. Den 26. Juli 1681 kehrte er von Zürich zurück, wohin ihn der Abt gesandt hatte, «sich umb ein Goldarbeiter umzusehen, welcher ettliche Edelgestein in Gold einfassen sollte, so in die neuwe Infel, welche die Closterfrauwen von Vahr gar zierlich machten von Gold und Bluemenwerk, einzusetzen weren. Hatt auch so vill ausgewürkt, das einmahl selbiges Werk der Infel den Fortgang wirdt haben, und bis auf könftige Engelweihe zugebrauchen seye»133. Den 1. Dezember 1681 wurde er als Dekan nach Pfäfers bestimmt, wo er bis zum 11. April 1682 blieb. Den 28. Juli 1684 mußte er nach Fahr, um dort die Orgel zu reparieren, ebenso ging er den kommenden 26. November wieder dorthin, «vmb sich etwas zu erholen, wegen vilen Arbeiten, die er vermählte gehabt zu haben in Stimmung der Orgel und Schreibung der grossen Choral Büchern». 1685 ging er den 27. April nach Muri zur Primiz seines Vetters, P. Konrad. Den 23. September 1685 machte er in Zürich für das Vestiarium und die Weberei, die ihm offenbar unterstellt waren, Einkäufe. Vom 20. November 1685 (nach andern 7. Januar 1686) bis zum 25. September 1686 war er Pfarrer in Eschenz. Vom 14. bis 21. Mai 1691 reparierte er die Orgel im Kloster zu Weesen. Im gleichen Jahre suchte er vom 9. August bis 19. September das Bad Pfäfers auf. Er war viele Jahre Beichtiger in der Au und zugleich auch Konventbeichtvater, als er den 12. Juni 1699 nach St. Gerold bestimmt wurde. Er bat aber, nach Sonnenberg gehen zu dürfen, was ihm erlaubt wurde. Von dort heimberufen, wurde er den 31. Dezember 1706 Vorsteher der Klosterschule und den 4. Februar 1707 wieder Konventbeichtvater. Doch wurde er seines hohen Alters wegen den 18. Dezember 1708 seines Amtes als Präfekt enthoben und wohl schon damals wieder als Socius nach Sonnenberg geschickt, wo er 1714 war. Später kam er wieder heim, ging aber den 20. Juli 1721 erneut hin und starb daselbst den 28. November 1726 im hohen Alter von 89 Jahren. Er wurde in der Kirche zu Wängi begraben. (Dank ans Klosterarchiv Einsiedeln).

Hans död den 26 mars 1679 avbröt dock allt arbete och boken gavs ut som den var, dock med tillägg av utgivaren Johannes Columbus. Schück anser den vara Schefferus bäst skrivna arbete, även om resultaten inte står sig. Den lär vara skriven på Karl XI:s befallning, för att styrka Sveriges rätt till vapnet tre kronor gentemot Danmark

Er bemühte sich vor allem um eine wissenschaftliche Renaissance der alten Klassiker. Durch seine Arbeiten wurden alle früheren Werke für die Gelehrten überflüssig und als überlebt beiseite gelegt.

Ownership inscription on front fly leaf: "Thomas A. Wise 1852." First title: Contemporary manuscript annotations in margin of p.143 of second part. One plate with contemporary manuscript annotations crossed out. Second title: Clean tears in folding leaf with two maps expertly repaired (no loss). Three plates with contemporary manuscript annotation in upper margin crossed out; one plate torn at bottom (no loss of image, but caption text removed); one plate with contemporary manuscript annotation in upper margin crossed out and torn at bottom, affecting most of caption text; one plate with contemporary manuscript annotation. Very light age-toning, particularly at outer edges, occasional minor foxing and soiling. A very good copy. In a cloth clamshell box, leather label. A fine gathering in a single volume of the early English translations of Tavernier's renowned and informative accounts of his travels in Asia. Lach refers to the author as "one of the most celebrated travelers of the seventeenth century and one of its greatest authorities on the routes of Eastern travel and on the diamond mines of India." The son of a Parisian geographer, Tavernier completed six overland journeys to Turkey, Persia, and India between 1631 and 1668. "In 1676-77 at Paris, Tavernier published in two volumes LES SIX VOYAGES, one of the most popular books of the seventeenth century. The first volume is centered on Turkey and Persia; the second on India, Ceylon, and the East Indies. By 1712 this work was reprinted at least six times in French, three times in English, and one time each in German, Dutch, and Italian" - Lach. THE SIX VOYAGES... records Tavernier's extensive travels through India, Ceylon, Indonesia, and Persia. Lach writes that the VOYAGES, "are rich in materials on routes, traveling conditions, trading practices, the mines of Golconda [in India], and the Dutch and English activities in the East. While Tavernier's contemporaries debated the authenticity of the VOYAGES, modern scholars agree that they constitute a valuable source for Indian history during the years from 1640 to 1667, or for almost a generation." The twenty-four plates include numerous engravings of coins and gems, reflecting the author's commercial activities, as well as images of town plans and scenes of local color. Two of the finely engraved plates provide examples of Arabic script. The second work, A COLLECTION OF SEVERAL RELATIONS & TREATISES SINGULAR AND CURIOUS, is the English translation of Tavernier's 1679 supplement to the original account of his six voyages. Composed of five separate parts based on the author's own observations and reports from other travellers, these accounts include descriptions of Japan (and Christian persecution there); French negotiations in Persia and India following the establishment of Colbert's East India Company; the kingdom of Tongking (now the northern part of Vietnam); the author's own observations on commerce in the East Indies; and Tavernier's highly critical remarks on "how the Hollanders manage their affairs in Asia." The two maps (on one folding leaf) are of Tonking and Japan; all eight plates show scenes of Tongking, including two related to funerary customs, one of pagodas, and one with fine detail of the costumes of the court. A fine set of the early English translations of Tavernier's celebrated and authoritative account of the East Indies. COX pp.275-76. Lach, ASIA IN THE MAKING OF EUROPE III, Book 1, pp.416-18. WING T256 (SIX VOYAGES); T250 (COLLECTION).
