        Voyage contenant sa navigation aux Indes Orientales, Maldives, Moluques, & au Bresil

      The ?oldest [account] that is known about life in a Brazilian city?. 1679. Paris. Louis Billaine. In 4to (230 mm x 172 mm). 1 [blank] + 5 ff. + 327 + 218 + 144 + 12 ff. + 1 [blank] + double page map. Elegant recent calf in period style. Title page with margins a bit soiled, last pages with mainly marginal dampstaining, worst towards the end, but generally fine. First edition edited by Pierre Duval (third in all) and the most complete ?and best- edition of the accounts of Laval´s extraordinary adventures in 1611, ?L´edition de Paris, Louis Billaine, 1679, in-4., est preferable... par rapport aux divers traits et relation curieuse, et aux observations géographiques de Ch. Duval? (Brunet). ?The most complete edition, with important additions by Du Val. Chapters 16, 26 and 27 of the second part relate to Brazil? (Sabin). A small octavo work entitled Discours du Voyage was first published in 1611 and was much shorter; the last 144 ff of this edition contains new material added by the editor, including geographical information on Brazil. The map is illustrated ?for the first time- with a folding map of the route undertaken by Laval, drawn by Du Val. Pyrard, a French seaman, set sail from France in 1601 destined to India; before arriving to destination, his ship wrecked off the Maldives and the survivors were captured by natives. Pyrard swiftly gained the favor of the King and stayed with him for five years. Eventually he got to India where he regained his freedom. In India he joined the Portuguese army after being mistaken for a spy and imprisoned at Goa; during this period, he fought in the Moluccas, Ceylon and Java. The final chapters describe the period when Pyrard was stranded at Bahia in 1610 for two months and in many ways they are considered of the outmost importance. According to Borba de Moraes that is he ?oldest [account] that is known about life in a Brazilian city... He describes the primitive elevator connecting the higher and lower levels of the city, whaling, contraband... the opulence of the sugar mill owners, and his adventures in Bahia?. Borba de Moraes, II, 694. Sabin 66882. Brunet, IV, 991.

        L'Amerique Suivant les dernieres Relations avec les Routes que l'on tient pour Les Indes Occidentales

      Paris: M[ademois]elle DuVal, dated 1679 [but 1688]. Copper-engraved wall map, with original outline colour, from Duval's "Carte de Geographie," on four unjoined sheets, expertly re-margined with laid paper on two sides of each sheet, compensating margins at the places where the maps were previously joined. Each sheet 19 1/8 x 23 5/8 inches, if joined the sheets would form a map measuring 34 x 45 inches. A magnificent seventeenth century wall map of the Americas and the Western Hemisphere by one of the greatest French cartographers 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. California is depicted as an island, as rendered by contemporary Dutch cartographers such as Frederick de Wit and Carel Allard. A speculative aspect also dominates the portrayal of the rest of the American Southwest, such as the labelling of the mythical land of "Quivira" on the mainland, and the depiction of the Rio Grande as having its source in the fictitious "Lac de Conibas," and its terminus in the Gulf of California. 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. Interestingly, this map seems to have been a rhetorical device intended to promote the idea of a Northwest Passage that runs through the Canadian Arctic and then through a supposed strait into the Pacific Ocean. Duval makes the case clearly by stating that "It is believed that this strait communicates between the Seas of the North and the South". Supporting this notion, the map features the track of a supposed 1665 voyage that headed through the Davis and Hudson's Straits, and over through the "Mer Glaciale," heading towards "Iesso," a mythical land located to the north of Japan. The South Pacific and Australasia are shown to be largely a mystery to the European consciousness, with New Zealand being connected to the mythical "Terre de Quir." The map is beautifully embellished with two Baroque cartouches including allegorical and native figures, and sailing ships. Each mapsheet is also adorned with side panels of text that explain political and geographical details of the regions featured. This map is the second state of Duval's map of the New World, printed under the privilege of his daughter, who was one of the inheritors of his firm upon his death in 1683. The imprint in the general title is altered to read "Chez Mlle. Du Val, Fille de l' Auteur Sur le Quay de l'Orloge, proche le coin de la rue de Harlay a l'ancien Buis." Each of the four sheets is separately titled, as follows: [upper left] "Le Nouveau Mexique et La Terre de Jesso"; [lower left] "La Mer de Sud dit autrement Mer Pacifique"; [upper right] "La Mer de Nort ou sont La Nle. France, La Floride [&c.]"; [lower right] "Le Perou, Le Chili, La Magellanique, La Plata, et Le Bresil". Burden, The Mapping of North America II, 508; McLaughlin, California as an Island, 66; Pastoureau, Les Atlas Francais XVIe-XVIIe siecles, Duval II-F, maps: 10,11,13,14 (State 2); Wagner, Cartography of the Northwest Coast of America, 414; Wheat, Mapping the Transmississippi West, 60.

      [Np]. 1679-1681.. A total of [52]pp. of neat manuscript written in French on folded sheets. Folio. Original ribbon ties. Overall in excellent condition. In a half morocco and cloth box. From the papers of Michel Bégon (see below). This French manuscript records two separate voyages to the Caribbean by Lieut. Gabaret during 1679-81. Gabaret, a member of a family prominent in French naval affairs of this period, served with distinction in the European wars of the previous decade. He was sent to the Antilles aboard Le Bon, leaving Brest with a squadron of other vessels including Le Triomphant, L'Opiniastre, and Le Tigre. The Comte Destrées, vice admiral of France, apparently led the expedition to the American islands. The squadron arrived in Martinique on June 22, 1679, sighted Jamaica on July 18, entered the port of Havana to request the return of French prisoners, and coasted Jamaica, noting navigational details. They departed Jamaica on Aug. 26, the French vessels struggling through a hurricane from Sept. 5 to 15, and then sighting Florida. In October the expedition returned to Brest with four vessels. The second expedition, covering the period from April 20, 1680 through March 2, 1681, was also sent to retrieve French prisoners in the Spanish Caribbean possessions. It consisted of several vessels under the command of Destrées, including L'Excellent, L'Hasardeux, La Diligente, Le Marin, La Tempeste, and Les Seux. Land was first sighted on June 23. On July 4 the group set out for St. Croix from Fort St. Pierre in Martinique. Arriving on July 7, they anchored at St. Croix and subsequently set out for explorations and mapping. On July 12 the expedition asked for prisoners at Cap de Cansede and were told they had been sent away. After arriving at Cartagena on July 20, a conference with the Governor's envoys was recorded: " raison de son voyage demandoit les prisoniers et particulier le Capne. Champagne prisonier depuis lannée soixante huit...." A description of the Cartagena garrison is given, which mentions a company of free black soldiers and another of slaves. Later in the fall they visited Grenada and Marguerite. By late November the French ships were searching for the entrance to the "Golfe de pavia" between "isle de la Trinité et la grande terre." The Spanish refused to allow the French vessels to land at Trinidad, so an emissary was sent to talk to the island governor. The major had 150 muskets fired and sent a shallop to help out a Dutch boat, whose passengers asked for water which had been denied them by the Spaniards. The final departure from Grenada was on Dec. 11, and the ships had a particularly long and difficult passage home. Michel Bégon, with whose papers this manuscript was discovered, was a veteran French colonial administrator who served in Canada in the 1670s and early '80s, then in the French colonies in the Caribbean for another decade. In the 1690s he became intendent of the port of Rochelle, and in that capacity he gathered much data on French commerce and actions overseas, and advised the government extensively on matters of trade and commerce until his death in 1710. Very few detailed voyage accounts of any sort survive from 17th-century voyages to America. This report was probably prepared by Gabaret shortly after the voyage. It is a clean draft, written in several neat hands, possibly made specifically for Michel Bégon, then governor of Martinique. A fascinating manuscript record of two early French voyages to the Caribbean. La Roncière, HISTOIRE DE LA MARINE FRANÇAISE (Paris, 1919) 5:696,703.

        The History of The Civil Wars of England 1640, To 1660

      London: Not Stated, 1679. Book. Fair. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall. The text of this rebound copy is quite rough in all respects, though striking me as legible with minimal chipping. Author is given as "T. H." A lengthy summary of the texts condition will follow. It seems likely that the first section (title page thru @ page 47) of text experienced color bleed brown staining at margin edges in it's original binding. The title page is much affected, those following less so. I will be photographing the title page for the books listing. Mercifully the darkening is confined to the margins in the main. The collector had made small light penciled notes on the title page as was his habit. Surely they can erase but I will not be doing so, as this should, I think, be done by an Archivist. Additionally the collector noted the Wing and M & H catalog numbers on the first, replaced endsheet. Some corrected (and uncorrected) dog earing is noted, not a great deal. The edges of the text are rather rounded at the bottom.The end sheets and pastedowns were replaced with beige toned stock. Not a perfect match for the original foxed and age darkened matter, but well chosen. The last printed sheet has a small, ancient penned note at it's bottom, a darkened spot, and tiny chips out of it's margin. I have not had the chance to get an archivists opinion as to whether the text edges were cropped for the restoration process, but I suspect not. The edges are quite dark, the header titling seems to vary in location from 1/4" down to 1/2" down from page top. Fore edge may have had marbling but age has obscured it, it and the bottom are lighter than the top, splotchier, the top edge is almost a walnut color and more even. The boards are done in sturdy, modern brown cloth with a black and gilt spine label. Book is 6 5/8 X 4 3/8" 286 pages, gathered in 8 leaf signatures, J signature not present, intentionally so as the pagination is correct throughout. With the book we will tender the collectors notes showing "First edition. Wing H-2239 and Macdonald and Hargreaves 86." The books is/has been stored in fitted, clear acid free sleeve since coming to us. As with all items over $75.00 will ship with delivery confirmation and insurance (where possible) at our expense..

This work is edited by Johann Benedict Carpzov II (1639–1699) , a German Christian theologian and Hebraist.

A paperflw at foot of titlepage neathly repaired, no loss of paper or letters. Internally clean and fine, printed on thick, good paper.. Extremely scarce first edition of Leclerc's important work on binocular vision in which he finds that one of the eyes has a dominant status, thus announcing the discovery of the "Master-eye" - a discovery of outmost importance in the theory of shooting and elsewhere. With use of diagrams he shows that "things that can be seen clearly are seen with but one single eye.". He records and depicts a large series of experiments with binocular vision and shows geometrically the relation to the science of perspective, and points out the importance of understanding the physiology of binocular vision for perspective painting in general.Sebastien Leclerc was originally an engraver who studied physics and geometry in relation to perspective theory, a field of which he became famous. In 1672 he was appointed to "l'Academie de Peinture" as professor in perspective. He was also engraver to Louis XIV and was appointed professor at "l'Ecole des Gobelins"

Fint nära samtida skinnband av spegeltyp, rikt guldornerad rygg med upphöjda bind, blindpressade pärmar med guldram, marmorerade snitt. Litet maskhål på främre pärmens nedre hörn. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Bibl. danica III, sp. 1517. Thesaurus 632. Warmholtz 5055, not. De tre danska adelsmännen Knud, Holger och Tage Thott flydde våren 1678 till Danmark efter anklagelser om att ha hjälpt snapphanarna. I april samma år avrättades de i Malmö "in effigie", d.v.s. dockor föreställande dem blev symboliskt halshuggna och fick huvudena uppsatta på pålar. Holger Thotts slott Sövdeborg överlämnades till Jörgen Sperling. Efter krigsslutet fick de dock återkomma och Holger återfick slottet. Den svenske vicegeneralguvernören i Malmö Jörgen Sperling var en hårdför snapphanejägare och ökänd bl.a. för sitt försök att komma över Krageholms slott genom att efter en summarisk rättegång och dom 1678 låta avrätta dess ägare Jörgen Krabbe. Krabbe var dessutom svåger till Thottarna. Oluf Rosencrantz (1623-85) var geheimråd och författare samt ihärdig försvarare av den danska adelns rättigheter. Han angrep även domen mot Jörgen Krabbe i skriften "En sandfærdig repliqve imod den falske deduction...", även den utkommen 1678. Han angrep dock inte bara den svenska staten utan försvarar i andra verk den danska adeln även mot det danska enväldets övergrepp

        Précis des Oeuvres mathématiques de Fermat et de l'Arithmétique de Diophante.Toulouse: Douladoure, 1853. First edition, offprint issue.

      A separately paginated offprint from the Mémoires de l'Académie des Sciences de Toulouse, Tom. III. Brassinne begins (pp. 11-46) with a summary of the contents of Fermat's Varia Opera published by his son Samuel in 1679. This is followed (pp. 47-131) with a summary of the six books of Diophantus' Arithmetica, together with the comments Fermat added in the margins of his copy of the 1621 edition of that work (one of which was Fermat's 'last theorem'). The remainder of the work reprints Fermat's correspondence with Mersenne, Pascal, Roberval and others. In view of the relative inaccessibility of the original works, for many 19th century mathematicians and historians this was the most accessible source for understanding Fermat's work before the publication of his Oeuvres (1891-1912).. 8vo: 220 x 140 mm.
