        Oraisons Funebres ComposŽes Par Monsieur Flechier, Abbe De Saint Severin De L Academie Francoise

      Seconde Edition by , Paris: 1680. Good in a 17th century binding of full leather covered boards with five raised bands on the spine with only fragments of the backstrip remaining, but enough to show gilt tool work and gilt text in the compartments. In subsequent years to preserve the binding the spine area was heavily varnished. In the area where the backstrip has been lost the underlying sewing supports (cords) are visible. The front and rear joints seem to be cracked but the varnish continues to hold the book together with the aid of the still strong front and rear hinges. A 16mo measuring 6 1/4" by 3 1/2" with two recent prior owner's names on the first free end page. 326 pages of text.

        Insulae Americanae in Oceano Septentionali

      Amsterdam, 1680. No Binding. Near Fine. 18 1/8 x 22 3/8 inches. Fine original color; excellent. A particuarly handsome map portraying all the Caribbean islands, part of Mexico, Central America, Florida (called "Tegesta Prov.") and part of South America. Strangely, the area of present day Georgia and part of South Carolina is called French Florida ("Florida Galli"); the French colonies in the area had been obliterated a century before this map appeared. The map extends as far north as Delaware Bay. Putti adorn the cartouche in the upper right, while two nereids and a merman make sport of a perplexed ichthyocentaur (with the body of a man, the front legs of a horse and the tail of a fish). The engraving of the figures is uncommon quality.

        A Mapp of the Isles of Iapon

      A. Goodbid and J. Playford, 1680. Map. Copperplate engraving with hand-coloring. Expertly restored and lined, margins missing. Image measures 14.25 x 20.75". This rare and unusual map of Japan features a graphic illustration of the islands with pictorial depictions of mountains and forts. An inset of Tunquin (North Vietnam) depicts the river system centered on Hanoi and the Gulf on Tonkin. The Sea of Korea and the country's tip can be seen below the inset. Moses Pitt, a British bookseller and publisher, released this English edition of Tavernier's original French map in 1680. The map has been intensively repaired and has some stains, but it remains a good copy of this hard-to-find map. Jean Baptiste Tavernier (1605-1689) was a famous French traveler who voyaged most extensively in India and Persia. His two volumes of "Les Six Voyages de Jean-Baptiste Tavernier" document his travels and commercial contacts. While he never made it to Japan, this scarce map evidences the wide range of contacts he made during his voyages.

        Tabula IndiÊ Orientalis Emendata a F. de Wit

      Amsterdam,: c., 1680.. Engraved map, 460 x 560 mm., superb handcolouring; in fine condition, framed. Fine early map of the East Indies showing the discoveries of Tasman by Frederick de Wit, at a time when he was one of the foremost map-makers in Holland. His firm's 'maps were distinguished by their excellent craftsmanship, exactness and beauty...' (Schilder).This map stretches from Persia in the west to China and Taiwan in the east, and shows northern "Hollandia Nova", bearing three significant place names: "Van Diemens Landt"; "Baya van Diemen" and "Vuyle hoeck" (the last a disparaging term meaning something like "rotten corner" and evidently relating to the inhospitable coastline). All of these relate to Abel Tasman's second voyage of 1644.'Frederick de Wit, an apprentice of William Blaeu... became one of the most prominent and successful map engravers and publishers in Amsterdam following the decline of the Blaeu and Jansson establishments. His work, notable for the beauty of the engraving and colouring, was very popular and editions were issued many years after his death...' (Parry, The Cartography of the East Indian Oceans, p. 118).The map is handcoloured in outline and decorated by a beautiful cartouche showing four dramatically-posed costumed figures of the East.Not in Tooley; Parry, The Cartography of the East Indian Islands, plate 4.29.

      circa 1680 Duodecimo, 6 x 3.5 inches. Fifth edition, hitherto unrecorded. B-F12. 115 pages. This seems to be an unrecorded edition of this title. The Secret History was included in a book entitled "A Collection of Pleasant Novels," published by the same printer, in an undated edition that was advertised in the end of 1699 and came out sometime in 1700, according to the Term Catalogue. The next listing for this title in both references was printed in 1703, thus passing over this therefore unrecorded edition of 1702. An engraved allegorical frontispiece is bound opposite the title. This is copy is bound in full modern sheepskin, a buff color. The leaves are occasionally spotted, with no great defects. Some contemporary inscriptions appear on the endleaves. By the late seventeenth century, Elizabeth's love life became a subject of obsession in Englnad and especially in France. The Secret History of the Most Renowned Q. Elizabeth, and the E. of Essex in the most famous of the absurd tattle-tale books, but not the last. There is also The Secret History of the Duke of Alancon and Q. Elizabeth: A True History (1691), written in a crisp documentary style, and the Secret Memoirs of Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester (1706). These in turn have inspired nineteenth-century operas and an endless stream of modern pulp fiction." (quoted from Elizabeth I: Ruler and Legende

He began with the center of motion, the muscle, and then applied its forces to the linkage of bones with the same exactness as forces applied to levers. This analysis evolved into a system describing an animal's entire mobility covering the motions of walking, running, jumping, weight-lifting, bird flight, fish motion and insect creeping. He held that nerve stimulation was related to the contraction and swelling of a muscle and that some chemical process was associated with it. He also believed that heartbeat was a simple muscular contraction and that the circulatory system was hydraulic in principle (Dibner, Heralds of Science)..

        A Mapp of All the World in two Hemispheres in which are exactly Described all the Parts of the Earth and Seas. Described by Sanson, corrected and amended by William Berry

      London: "Sold by William Berry at ye Sign of the Globe between Charing Cross and Whitehall", 1680. Engraved double-hemispheric world map, period hand-colouring in outline. (Expertly repaired tears at sheet edges). 23 1/4 x 35 1/8 inches. Scarce separately issued seventeenth century English world map. "William Berry, a minor map-seller who sometimes worked in conjunction with Robert Morden, has here adapted the Sanson world map as published by Hubert Jaillot in 1674. Berry has patriotically marked the islands discovered by Drake just off Tierra del Fuego and has added New Albion in the northern part of California, shown as an island. Decoration is minimal except for a cartouche carrying a dedication to Charles II and his coat-of-arms" (Shirley). Other differences from the Sanson map include additional toponyms in North America, reflecting English settlements, including Carolina. The map was offered for sale as a separate sheet and within a composite world atlas offered for sale by Berry. Of the latter, Phillips writes: "This collection of English maps by William Berry is sometimes known as the English Sanson atlas. The maps were published separately at various dates and the atlas was issued without a title page. There are only two other copies of this atlas known, one in the King's collection in the British Museum, where it is regarded as one of the rarest of English atlases."

        GRACE ABOUNDING TO THE CHIEF OF SINNERS; or, a Brief and Faithful Relation of the Exceeding Mercy of God in Christ to his poor servant John Bunyan. Wherein is particularly shewed the manner of his conversion his fight and trouble for sin his dreadful

      London: Printed for F. Smith at the Elephant and Castle near the Royal Exchange in Cornhill, At 1s bound, n.d. [ca. 1680-9?]. The Sixth Edition, Corrected and Much Enlarged by the Author 14.5 cm x 8 cm, octavo (signatures in 8s), pp. [10], 1-110, then 113-172 (irregular pagination though text and register continuous and complete), original full sheepskin binding. Fore-edge to first 7 leaves cropped and lightly chipped with slight loss of text, 5.5 cm horizontal closed tear to title-page, pages tanned, some soiling and minor staining; in a contemporary and school boy hand are the ink notes and signature of: "Isaac Walton His Book Anno Dominy [sic] 1696" on both the versos and rectos of the pastedown endpapers which are not attached to the boards. Covers are scuffed and rubbed and the corners rounded. Respectable copy of this scarce seventeenth-century Bunyan classic. "Bunyan was arrested in 1660 and imprisoned-for more than eleven years. Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners, written during this imprisonment, is the spiritual autobiography of Bunyan, the traveling tinker who became the eminent preacher and author. It is in the genre of Augustine's Confessions and Thomas a Kempis's Imitation of Christ.... Those who have read both Grace Abounding and The Pilgrim's Progress will realize that The Pilgrim's Progress, in substantial measure, is the same life as that described in Grace Abounding, but in allegory rather than straightforward narrative." - CCEL Online. Wing (CD-ROM, 1996), B5524 (for 3rd edition). Unable to locate a copy of this 6th edition printed for F. Smith at the Elephant and Castle. Francis Smith published most, if not all the works which Bunyan wrote while in prison. He, himself was imprisoned again and again as a 'fanatic' because he would publish 'dangerous books'. He would have published 'Grace Abounding' but was in prison when it was issued. . Full Leather.

Near fine. The first edition of Dapper's important study of Asia Minor and Arabia, celebrated for its views of cities and scenes of life in Turkey and Arabia. Olfert Dapper (1639-89) was a Dutch physician and indefatigable scholar and compiler of travel accounts. Though he apparently never left Amsterdam, Dapper produced several finely illustrated volumes describing travels in Asia, Asia Minor, the Middle East, and Africa. Culled from a variety of accounts, his works were very popular and are especially noteworthy for their excellent illustrations and maps. This volume, as indicated on the handsome engraved titlepage, covers Arabia, Mesopotamia, Babylonia (Iraq), Assyria, and Anatolia (Turkey). The entire second half of the text treats Arabia. Included are views of Baghdad, Ephesus, Smyrna, Muscat, and other significant cities, as well as illustrations of Babel and the Tower of Babel. In-text illustrations include views of other cities, as well as scenes of life, dress, topography, etc. One of the maps shows the whole of Anatolia, and another shows the entire Arabian peninsula.

        Breve relacion de la peregrinacion que ha hecho de la mayor parte del mundo

      1680 - First edition of Cubero’s circumnavigation and peregrination to Asia and America. 1680. Madrid. Juan Garcia Infaçon. In 4to (195 mm x 128 mm). 10 ff. + 360. Fine blue morocco by Brugalla, supralibros to boards in blind, spine lettered in gilt, edges and turn-ins gilt. Mainly marginal restoration to title page, with a small portion restored in facsimile, some headlines shaved, light foxing towards the end, else a very good copy; manuscript note on title page. First edition. Cubero’s was the first circumnavigation performed eastwards, that is, first making his way from Europe to Asia, then America –through Mexico and Cuba- and finally back to Europe instead of the other way around. Cubero (c. 1645 - c. 1697) was a Spanish Priest and missionary, he studied humanities, philosophy and theology; in 1671 the Congregation of Propagande Fide sent him as an Apostolic Preacher to Asia and the East Indies, mission during which he would travel largely across Russia (Moscow), Turkey (Istanbul), Armenia, Persia, etc., making his way to Goa and Madras. In Malacca he will be detained by the Dutch for a short period of time, after which he journeyed once more, this time towards the Philippines, then making the famous route between Manila and Mexico. He set sail across the Caribbean –visiting Cuba- and reached Spain in 1680. “Towards the end of the volume, Cubero describes his experiences of the New World” (Sabin). An interesting fact is that Cubero made most of his route by land –as will later Careri-, thus being constantly in touch with the costumes, religions, ceremonies and such of the people he visited and describing them in considerable detail. Rare in the market, two copies appeared at auction in the last 50 years. Provenance; manuscript note of Pere de Ribes-Vallgomera de Boixadors, Marques de Alferras, ennobled by Philip V in 1702.
