        Ginaeceum chimicum seu congeries plurium authorum. Volumen primum (= all published).

      Lyons, Jean de Treves, 1679.. 8vo (171 x 112 mm). (4), 727, (1) pp. Contemp. vellum with ms. title to spine.. Scarce French edition of the alchemical works by "The Princes of Chemical Art", Geber the Arab and Avicenna, as well as of John Belye, John Dastin, Georg Horn, Francesco Maria Santinelli, Giovanni Bracesco, and others. Abu Musa Jabir ibn Hayyan (known as "Geber" in the Latin tradition) is the name of an author whose historical existence is under debate, but who, according to Arabic culture, is said to have lived in the second half of the eight century, been the head of a hermetic school, and left an extensive body of works on natural philosophy and alchemy. The rediscovery of Geber for the history of chemistry and alchemy was introduced by Hermann Kopp in the 19th century. Geber was an enthusiastic believer in the possibility of the transmutation of base metals into gold, by using a special elixir that could be connected to the theories about the famous Philosopher's Stone. Conversely, Avicenna, after al-Kindi, was one of the first philosophers to prefer scientific chemistry over the obscurer sides of alchemy. Following his practical laboratory experience, he discredited alchemical belief in the transmutation of substances, though acknowledging that they can produce the appearance of such a change. He described the process of steam distillation, used to obtain alcohol and essential oils, and invented the refrigerated coil, which condenses aromatic vapors. - Contemp. ms ownership of Jean Jacques Alferi to title page. Occasional brownstaining, still a good copy. OCLC locates not a single copy in U.S. libraries; no records in ABPC since 1975. - Goldsmith G 1002. OCLC 771387473.

Frontispiece portrait. Tables & diagrams. William Salmon (1644–1713), a physician (some said quack), who in addition to treating patients and selling patent medicines professed alchemy and practiced astrology, casting horoscopes. He was famous for his extensive personal library, and himself wrote and translated books on a broad range of topics including astrology, medicine, botany, hermetica, pharmacology and religion. "Horae Mathematicae seu Urania" is a broad ranging study of astrology, with its subtitle describing the volume as exploring ". the Names, Numbers and Natures of the Faces of the Signs, the Planets, Nodes, Aspects and Houses; The Setting of a Figure; Explication of Terms of Art; Refutation of Planetary hours, Deep, Pitted, Lame and Azimene Degrees; The Doctrine of Nativities, shewing all the ways of Rectifying, Directing and giving Judgment thereon, from Regiomontanus, Argol, Kepler, Morinus and others, deduced from a Consideration of the Signs, Aspects, Nodes, Houses, Planets and Fixed Stars, as they are related by Position, Direction, Transit and Revolution; The Radical Solution of all manner of Demands, Radical Elections, the Resolution of all Horary Questions; the Method of Annual Judgments, Monthly Observations, Judgments on Eclipses, Comets, Conjunctions of saturn and Jupiter, Aphelions of the Erraticks, Meteorological Predictions, And a Demonstration of the Aspects of the Planets; Together with the various ways of finding the Planets and Fixed Stars Rising, Southing and Setting, by new Tables never before Published." The book is also has a particularly choice note above the list of Errata, which is surely not far removed from the modern-day "a dog ate my home-work" type of excuse: "Reader, the Coppy had a mischance, and fell into a Vessel of Oyle, by which it became almoft illegible, and from whence arofe the following Errors; the most material we have here noted, what else thou meetest with, Correct also with thy Pen."

        A Treatise of Taxes and Contributions

      London: Obadiah Blagrave, at the Sign of the Bear in St Paul?s Corth-Door, 1679. Quarto, calf, red morocco label gilt, 20 x 15cm, pp.(16) + 72, an excellent, fresh copy with wide margins, leaf edges of lower margins entirely uncut.Keynes, no.10. Wing P1940. Kress 1499. Goldsmith 2302. See David McNally:Political Economy & the Rise of Capitalism, 1990 p.35.Third edition of William Petty?s first economic treatise. A reprint of the second edition of 1667 with minor alterations to the title page. It was first printed in 1662. This third edition was published against Petty?s wishes. All editions of this book are now rare.The seminal eco­nomic work of William Petty, in which he con­siders the best tax policies for pro­moting growth. He pro­poses use of the tax and spend method, with emphasis on taxing con­sumption and imports rather than income. In his view tax policy should be used to finance public spending by the State while keeping the accounts balanced. ?Petty is widely acknowledged to be a founder of classical political economy. Marx dubbed him "the father of English political economy" and praised his "audacious genius." Max Beer described Petty as "the pioneer of the English economics of production" and claimed that "he must be regarded as the initiator of classical English economics: he laid the foundations on which his successors?Smith and Ricardo?could erect their structures." In the view of Eric Roll, Petty is "the most important, as well as the earliest, English economist who prepared the way for the classical system," while writers such as Schumpeter, Spiegel, and Meek have praised him as the originator of the concept of economic interdependence through the division of labour and of modern income analysis. In The Origins of Scientific Economics, William Letwin has written of Petty's major economic work, A Treatise of Taxes and Contributions, that "its basic structure must stand as a work of surpassing originality. The quality of its analysis makes it an unmistakable masterpiece of early economic science."? David McNally

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)

        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.

        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.

        Die gantze Erd-Kugel,

      Frankfurt: Johann David Zunner,, 1679. bestehend in den vier bekannten Theilen der Welt als, Europa, Asia, Africa und America sampt schönen neuen und accuraten Land-Karten nebenst einer Geographischen und Historischen Beschreibung... 4 parts bound in one, quarto (240 × 186 mm). 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.
