        The Apology: or, The Genuine Memoires of Madam Maria Manchini, Constabless of Colonna, eldest sister to the Duchess of Mazarin. Written in Spanish by her own hand, and afterwards made into English by a Person of Quality.

Bentley 1679 - with an engraved portrait frontispiece, a bit browned, and a few stains, clean tear in one leaf, cut a bit close with some headlines shaved, first leaf slightly frayed at fore-edge, pp. [viii, including imprimatur and advertisement leaves], 150, small 8vo,[bound with:] Mazarin (Hortense Mancini, duchesse de) The Memoires of the Dutchess Mazarine. Written in French by her own hand, and done into English by P. Porter Esq; Together with the reasons of her coming into England. Likewise, a letter containing a true character of her person and conversation. The second impression. Printed, and are to be sold by William Cademan, 1676, some browning, pp. [iv], 130 (portrait and errata not called for in this impression), nineteenth-century dark blue hard grained morocco, gilt panelled sides, spine gilt with a fleuron in each compartment, armorial bookplate inside front cover of the engineer Robert Stirling Newall, upper joint neatly repaired, sound The memoirs (attributed respectively to Sébastien Brémond and l’Abbé de Saint-Réal) of two of the famously beautiful daughters of Baron Lorenzo Mancini, after whose death in 1650, their mother, Girolama Mazzarini, took them from Rome to Paris in the hope of using the influence of her brother, Cardinal Mazarin, to gain them advantageous marriages. Their subsequent amours are the stuff of legend. Maria was the first romantic love of Louis XIV, while Hortense, after many vicissitudes, became the mistress of Charles II. She, Hortense, however fell from favour with Charles, as she continued with extra adventures, including, possibly, one with Aphra Behn. Curiously enough, in the advertisements included in the first work here, after a full-page one for a vehemently anti-catholic work, are ‘Plays by Madame Behne’, as well as the second work here. The Lincence leaf to the first work has a 19th-century inscription: ‘very rare - containing many singular anecdotes of the private life of the lady in question.’For a full account, see The Kings' Mistresses by Elizabeth C. Goldsmith, recently published. (ESTC R15149 and R19039)

Der deutsche Herausgeber Franck war Rektor der Heidelberger Universität. - Lange vor Mesmer entwarf Maxwell die Theorie des "spiritus vitalis", die über Helene Blavatsky bis zur neuzeitlichen, sog. ganzheitlichen Medizin von Bedeutung ist. Zu den bekannten und gerne im Zusammenhang mit Maxwell zitierten Aussagen des Werkes ist seine Behauptung, aus Pflanzenasche einen Homunkulus erschaffen zu können. - Mit Exlibris des kalifornischen Mediziners Kenneth Garth Huston (1926-1987), Mitherausgeber der Bibliographie Rubins zu Kenelm Digby.

        Two Letters from Mr. Montagu to the Ld Treasurer

      London: Jonathan Edwin at the Three Roses in Ludgate-Street, 1679 Book. Very Good-. Hardcover. First Edition. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. This is a laying-in of two letters to the Lord Treasurer by Montagu in hardcover. From the balance of the title page, "One of the 11th, the other of the 18th of Jan 1678." Collation is quarto, though size, of course, is smaller. The fifteen pages of text are laid with multiple beautiful parchment beige endsheets into boards. The boards are three-quarter bound in navy leather with gilt embellishments (spine and diagonal tips) with marbled paper for the balance and the endsheets. The item seems to be correct for wing number M2468. This information, plus Montagu's name and the book's institutional placements, are pencilled on the second, replaced endsheet. The text of the items themselves are wonderfully legible and minimally foxed and stained. I feel reasonably confident that the original text's edges are natural and not cropped due to their aged appearance. The title page has the only notable issues of the piece, those being a "9" penned at the title's top and a marked discoloration at its edges. I find the text surprisingly supple and bright. It is perhaps worth noting, that while the text is wholly legible, it has a rustic character appropriate to it's age and make. ie some bleed thru and roughness. All fully readable. Our restorer indicates all glues used are reversible. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately. Books listed by Brass Dolphin are so described, and graded, using the strict, traditional standards. For this reason, we have virtually zero returns.*.

        La Mer de Nort ou sont la N.le France, La Floride, La N.le Espagne, Les Isles et la Terre-ferme d'Amerique

      Paris: Chez l'Auteur, 1679. Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline. 17 3/8 x 22 1/2 inches. Scarce 17th century mapping of America. This superb map of the New World evinces mid-seventeenth century French geographical knowledge, based largely upon the work of the great French cartographer, Nicolas Sanson, Duval's father-in-law. It is also an excellent example of the French cartographic aesthetic, exalting clarity and classical elegance. Duval, with some geographical modernizations, based this map on his smaller 1655 rendering of the same subject. The depiction of the American Northeast is somewhat more progressive than that shown by Sanson. New York, Boston, Cape Cod, Virginia and Maryland are each specifically named. Up into the interior, Duval shows all five Great Lakes, however the boundaries of Lakes Superior and Michigan ("Lac des Puans") are left undetermined. Most of the American Southeast is shown as a part of the great Spanish territory of "Floride," which extends north into the Carolinas. South Carolina is labeled "Floride Françoise," and "Charles-Fort," the abortive French settlement on Port Royal Sound from the 1560s, is labeled here. This map appeared as the top right sheet of Duval's four sheet wall map, titled Carte de Geographie: "All [i.e. each sheet] were designed with individual titles so that they could be viewed independently or when these were removed they could be pasted together to form a large wall map" (Burden). The present example is from the first state of the map. Burden, The Mapping of North America II:508.

Contemporary vellum, title inked to spine. Engraved allegorical frontispiece/title page with female figures with the attributes of the four continents, and 63 maps, 59 of them double-page, 5 folding. . Worm trails to both sets of endpapers, marginal worming to last three maps, vellum lightly rubbed and marked, else an excellent copy. First German edition of Sanson's handsome atlas portatif, translated from the French continental volumes published in 1648, 1652, 1655, and 1657. The collation resembles closely the 1683 edition with 62 engraved maps, here with 15 maps of the Americas, 13 of Europe, 17 of Asia, and 18 of Africa. Nicolas Sanson père (1600-1667) began as a military engineer, but was encouraged by his publisher Melchior Tavernier to become a cartographer. Originally he worked in his native town of Abbeville (he is sometimes referred to as Sanson d'Abbeville), later moving to Paris. Considered by many as the founder of the French school of cartography, his maps, although "not nearly as ornamental as the maps of the Dutch school", their embellishment being "confined to a title cartouche for each map… they are very clear and neat, pleasing to the eye and of handy format" (Tooley). Sanson founded a dynasty consisting of his sons Nicolas le fils and Guillaume, and two grandsons Adrien and Pierre Moullars. His son was responsible for the maps which comprise L'Europe, published in the year in which he was killed in the fighting of the Frondes. A very suitably-bound and appealing copy.

        Extra Notice. For San Francisco. Only 35 cts. per cubic foot on the Fastest Ship in the World. The Clipper Ship Andrew Jackson

      The Andrew Jackson, a 1679 ton medium clipper, was built in Mystic in 1855. She was a fast sailer but, contrary to what this handbill would imply, set no records on any of her passages. On the date of the voyage advertised here - December 16, 1861 - her captain was Johnson. It is interesting to note that, just at this time, naval action in the Civil War was ramping up. The USS Constitution arrived at Ship Island at the mouth of the Mississippi River carrying the 26th Massachusetts Regiment to New Orleans, Great Britain began their embargo on US exports, and the naval blockade of the Confederate coast began to show results. This might explain the military theme of the handbill. However, despite the turmoil of the war, the text states that the Andrew Jackson might depart ?by Christmas day, but certainly on or before the 1st of January.? The ship was sold to the British in 1863 and was lost in the Gaspar Straits in 1868. This handbill measures 9 3/4 x 6 1/2 inches and has a wonderful image of Jackson astride his horse, American flag behind, which also appeared on the 1862 clipper ship sailing card for the Andrew Jackson. That card also advertised her as ?The Fastest Ship in the World!? Both the card and the handbill were printed by Nesbitt, of New York. The card is scarce, but the handbill is a rare, possibly unique, survival. In Fine condition.

      Oxford - H. Hall, 1679 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A very scarce copy of thisrevised edition of the 1664 work on English canon law. William Lyndwood (c. 1375 1446) was an English bishop of St. David's, diplomat and canonist. He is, however, chiefly remembered for his great commentary upon the ecclesiastical decrees enacted in English provincial councils under the presidency of the Archbishops of Canterbury. This elaborate work, commonly known as the Provinciale, follows the arrangement of the titles of the Decretals of Gregory IX in the Corpus Juris, and copies of much of the medieval English legislation enacted, in view of special needs and local conditions, to supplement the jus commune. Lyndwood's gloss gives an account of the views accepted among the English clergy of his day upon all sorts of subjects. This edition also contains John of Acton's gloss, composed circa 1333-1335, on the Legatine Constitutions of the thirteenth century papal legates, Cardinals Otto and Ottobuono for England. Decorative head and tail pieces. With monastic bookplate to front pastedown. Condition: Rebound in a full calf binding with original spine labels.

        A True Narrative of the Horrid Plot and Conspiracy of the Popish Party

      London: Parkhurst & Cockerill, 1679 Book. Fair-. Full-Leather. Presume 1st, UK. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. An extremely difficult book to describe, we hope to reconcile any deficiency of information on our part with a thorough description. Copious notes came to us with this book. First listed note references Wing 0-59, bound with four others in the binding of William Douglas , First Duke of Queensberry, circa 1639 - 1695. Possible Britwell Court marking, unable to locate a sale. Balance of title of O-59 as follows, "Against the Life of His Sacred Majesty, the Government, and the Protestant Religion: With a List of such Noblemen, Gentleman, and Others, as were the Conspirators: and the Head-Officers both Civil and Military that were to Effect it." The four other titles which are bound together in this volume include number S4127 "The Narrative of Mr. John Smith;"- number (J)5561(sic) "The Narrative of Robert Jenison;"- number P3177 "A True Narrative and Discovery" by Prance- B1677 "A Narrative and impartial Discovery of the Horrid Plot" by Bedloe. The book measures 12 3/8" by 8." Collated largely in folio. Boards are a polished, spotted leather. Gilt stamped centers, blind stamped edging. Spine has six ribs, no label. The spine's top (esp.) and bottom have chips out to a depth of a strong 1/8 of an inch. Front hinge exterior has cracking through full length, not loose due to cordage. Rear hinge much less so, cracked a bit but not through. All boards and surfaces have scuff, scar, tip bumping. Back board has one notable abrasion about the size of a grown man's index finger. We will now discuss the book's interior giving the printing data for 0-59 only and attempting to summarize the various library notes, ancient fountain pennings and so forth without capturing them all. First pastedown has BC library notes, WD of Queens notes. Both this sheet and the next blank endsheet have heavy edge browning. Next sheet facing blank, verso has statements from Brown and Oates dated 1679. Balance of printing information from title page as follows, "London: Printed for Thomas Parkhurst, and Thomas Cockerill, at the Bible and Three Crowns in Cheapside near mercers Chapel, and at the Three Legs in the Poultrey. M DC LXXIX." In the interest of brevity I will not list the particulars of the four following pamphlets, rather trying to summarize condition, faults and flaws. First endsheet has postage stamp sized diagonal chip off lower corner. Pages 2 thorugh 9 of the Oates have unusually heavy foxing, as do some later sections of the text. Each pamphlet has pencilled Wing number. Text in general is neither the most nor least perfect I have seen from this era. Text is generally wavy yet legibile throughout, spottily foxed. The foredge has marbling all edges, top edge darker. The Bedloe section is a shade lighter at the foredge. The Smith finishes at page 35 with two lines of errata. The full publication data from O-59 as follows,"Published by the order of the right Honorable the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled.

      Mark Catesby (ca. 1679-1749)Plate from Hortus Britanno-Americanus: or, a Curious Collection of Trees and Shrubs...London, 1763Hand-colored copperplate engraving23" x 19 1/2" framedHortus Britanno-Americanus: or, a Curious Collection of Trees and Shrubs, the Produce of the British Colonies in North America; adapted to The Soil and Climate of England.  With Observations on their Constitution, Growth, and Culture: and Directions how they are to be collected, packed up, and secured during their Passage.                            Mark Catesby's rare posthumously published guide to the seed-harvesting, transport, and cultivation in England of North American trees and shrubs. During the eleven years he spent in the Southeastern colonies of America (1712-19 and 1722-26) Catesby shipped to England an impressive quantity and variety of dried specimens as well as living seeds and plants, becoming in the process an expert in the difficult business of transatlantic shipping of botanical specimens.  Later, during his years of labor on the Natural History of Carolina, Catesby's connections among prominent London naturalists enabled him to encourage public interest in the cultivation in England of North American plants. He collaborated with several London nurserymen for the propagation and sale of his plants, notably Thomas Fairchild at Hoxton and Christopher Gray at Fulham. Gray's ca. 1737 broadsheet Catalogue of American Trees and Shrubs is illustrated with an engraving by Catesby of a magnolia, resembling the first plate of the Hortus and based on the same Ehret drawing. Catesby illustrated 62 different trees and shrubs in this work. Although most of the plants had already been described in more general terms in the Natural History, Catesby's descriptions in the Hortus are more detailed and focus on such practicalities as the best conditions for harvesting seeds and for preserving them during the sea voyage. Concise but clear directions are provided for every step in the process (spelled out most explicitly for item no. 1, the magnolia, "which may serve [he explains in the preface] also as a direction for most of the rest"). For ease of reference, Catesby's engraved figures (most related to but not identical to the larger illustrations of the Natural History) reproduce the plants in actual size. Although Sachaverell Sitwell suggested that an early version of the Hortus may have been issued in 1737, no copies of such an edition are known. In any case, as Henrey points out, "it is evident that Catesby was still preparing the work the year before he died, since in describing the catalpa tree [p. 25] he records that in August 1748 the profusion of flowers on a specimen at Mr. Gray's was so great that the leaves were almost hid thereby'" (Henrey II, 276). The London bookseller John Millan reissued the work in 1767, with a differently worded cancel title (Hortus Europae-Americanus), aiming the edition at the wider European market.This is a rare opportunity to obtain individual plates from Catesby’s scarce work on horticulture.
