        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. Palau 65756. Sabin 17819. Not in Salva (only the second edition). Maggs cat. 495, 303. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Pascaert van de Zuyd Zee en een gedeelte van Brasil

      Amsterdam: [1680]. Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline and with the cartouche fully coloured (expert restoration at sheet edges). 21 x 24 1/4 inches. First state of Van Keulen's dramatic chart of the Pacific, here with beautiful period hand-colouring. "This sea chart typifies the Dutch published image of the Pacific during this era. The southern Pacific contains the usual two islands of Magellan, along with the various landfalls of Le Maire and Tasman" (Suarez). Although centered on the Pacific, the map also encompasses all of North America, including a large depiction of California as an island, and most of South America. The present example is Burden's first state, issued in Van Keulen's 1680 Zee-Atlas and 1683 Zee-Fakkel. The Van Keulen family were chart and instrument makers, and publishers of nautical textbooks, books on sea law, shipbuilding, almanacs and more. Founded by Joannes van Keulen (c.1654- 1715), the firm remained in business for over 200 years.

        Hellas (in Greek) seu Graecia Universa. Auctore J. Laurenbergio

      [Amsterdam: n.d. but c. 1680]. Hand-coloured copper engraved map. 19 3/4 x 23 3/4 inches. An attractive map of the whole of Greece, by one of the great names in Dutch cartography. For nearly a century the Visscher family dominated Amsterdam's map trade. Claez Jansz Visscher (1587-1652) founded the business at the beginning of the seventeenth century, establishing the firm near the workshop of the great Dutch publisher Pieter van der Keere. At this time he produced a few separately published maps but his first major atlas was completely comprised of maps printed from van der Keere's old plates. The business was continued by Visscher's son and grandson who went by the names Nicholaes Visscher I (1618-1679) and Nicholaes Visscher II (1649-1702). During their lifetimes they issued many fine atlases, which they consistently updated and revised with the latest cartographic discoveries. Elizabeth Visscher, the widow of Nicholaes II, continued the business after her husband's death and published both an Atlas Minor and an Atlas Major. The business eventually was acquired by Peter Schenk (1660- 1718), who continued to republish the Visscher plates until his death in 1718.

        Novissima et Accuratissima Totius Americae Descriptio

      Amsterdam: [circa 1680]. Copper-engraved map. 21 1/2 x 24 1/2 inches. The first state of Danckert's first map of North and South America. Danckerts here issues a version of De Witt's circa 1675 map of the same title (i.e., Burden 465, between state 3 and state 4 of that issue). Cartographically, the two are very similiar, and thus Burden's notes on the earlier apply. Of that map, Burden writes: "The map is cartographically drawn directly from De Wit's own wall map version published in 1672. The most notable improvement is the depiction of the five Great Lakes, this for the first time on a Dutch map. There is also an altered west coast depiction of the Hudson Bay region. Both features appear to have been taken from Guillaume Sanson's Amerique Septentrionale, published in 1669" (Burden 465). As in the De Wit map, the decorative cartouche on the present map by Danckerts draws from an earlier Visscher map of the western hemisphere. The present map is Burden's first state, with the additional cartouche at the top left, without the mapping of New Guinea and neighboring islands in the South Pacific, and without Terra Esonis in the north. In circa 1696, Danckerts would re-issue this map from a new plate, the present plate apparently having worn out or been damaged (see Burden 725). This earlier version, however, is considerably more scarce, particularly in its first state, with Burden noting that only "a handful of examples" of Danckert's atlas from this early period are extant.

      Bartolomeo Zappata,, Torino, 1680 - Volume in folio antico (30x21 cm), legatura coeva in piena pergamena (minime mancanze agli angoli esterni), titolo manoscritto ab antiquo al dorso, bianca, frontespizio con impresa tipografica in silografia, prefazione, sommario degli argomenti di ciascun libro, 8 cc., 1082 pp. Testatine, iniziali e cul-de-lampe ornati. Settima edizione (la prima è del 1656 di Venezia, col titolo "Storia delle guerre d'Italia dal 1635 al 1655"), notevolmente ampliata, di questa pregiata opera storiografica, strutturata annalisticamente ed in parte fondata sull'esperienza diretta, che procurò all'autore l'invito a recarsi a Torino come storiografo e consigliere di corte nel 1676. I libri VII-XIII trattano delle guerre civili in Piemonte e contengono animate descrizioni degli assedi di Ivrea e Torino. Lo scrupoloso lavoro di ricerca e rigoroso vaglio delle fonti, rende quest'opera una fra le più apprezzate ed accurate descrizioni della storia d'Italia, a cui attingerà ancora, nel secolo XIX, Carlo Botta. Sostanzioso trattato, esteso e prezioso di notizie e conoscenze, assolutamente degno d'attenzione. Il volume presentato è in più che buono stato, malgrado la carta "povera" secentesca, è del tutto esente da bruniture, rarissime le mende, solo una lieve gora al margine bianco, esterno, inferiore, alle prime carte. D'altissimo valore e di buona rarità.

        De bibliothecis liber singularis. Editio secunda, priori multo auctior, & addito rerum indice locupletior.

      Utrecht, Johannes Ribb, 1680.. 8vo, pp. [xvi] including engraved title (specially engraved for this edition), printed title with printer's mark, 414; [20] index, [1] errata, [1] blank; contemporary full calf, spine in compartments, gilt lettered spine label; from the Macclesfield library with North Library book plate to front pastedown and blindstamp to title; a fine copy. Second much enlarged edition of this comprehensive survey and history of libraries (first edition 1669). Lomeier (1636-1699), professor of belles-lettres at the academy at Zutphen, studies the origin of libraries, conservation of records in Biblical times, the most celebrated collections of Europe, with especially detailed information on the great libraries of the seventeenth century. Lomeier is also of great interest for information on the responsibilities of librarians, library locations and buildings, and library fittings. His work proved a great sourcebook for Le Gallois Traité des plus belles bibliothèques de l'Europe. The fine engraved title was specially engraved for this second edition. Petzholdt p. 26 (with a discussion on the order of books in libraries).

        Insularum Sardiniae et Corsicae descriptio

      Carta geografica dell'isola tratta dall'atlante del De Wit. Su un cartiglio in basso a destra è inserito il titolo. Ai due lati della struttura sono poggiate due sirene e altre creature marine immerse in acqua. Sulla parte superiore sono invece poggiati lo stemma della Sardegna con i quattro mori bendati e quello della Corsica, con un solo moro più grande. La carta presenta un'orografia del tutto arbitraria, infatti l'isola risulta affollata di mucchi di talpa colorati in marron disposti senza un ordine preciso. Anche le posizioni dei fiumi, disegnati con un tratto forte, non sempre corrispondono alla realtà. Viene inoltre segnalata una ricca vegetazione per mezzo di alberelli e ciuffi d'erba, talvolta anche colorati in verde. Le città si individuano per mezzo di diversi simboli, a seconda della loro importanza, case e torri o piante murate colorate in rosso. Il simbolo della città è accompagnato da una croce se essa è sede di diocesi o di archidiocesi. E ricordata anche l'esistenza dei due capi di Cagliari e Lugodori, ma non è segnata alcuna linea di confine tra i due. Bellissimo esemplare in coloritura coeva. A nice map of the islands of Sardinia and Corsica. The coastal information is fairly accurate but much of the interior topography is less precise. The title cartouche features the arms of the Kingdoms of Sardinia and Corsica with their characteristic symbols for the defeated Moors who had once ruled the islands. Original color, good conditions.

        Livres de Fleurs.

      Amsterdam, c. 1680. Oblong small folio (350 x 190mm). Engraved title within a garland of flowers arranged on a pillar, and 9 engraved plates of bouquets of flowers, each bouquet displayed in an ornamental glass vase, very fine engravings. Contemporary mottled calf, gilt borders, rebacked to style. Not in Nissen or any of the obvious bibliographies. Dunthorne 317 cites this work under the author Vauquer. Dr. Sam Segal believes this work by Justus Danckerts is the first edition and predates the edition by Vauquer. However both are rare and no copy has appeared at auction. J. Danckerts was a member of the famous Danckerts family of Amsterdam, one of the best known print and map sellers in 17th century Amsterdam. 'The grandfather, father, and sons were all highly skilled and excellent artistic draftsman and engravers' (Koeman II, p. 88).

        Novissima et Accuratissima Totius Americae Descriptio

      Amsterdam: [circa 1680]. Copper-engraved map. 21 1/2 x 24 1/2 inches. The first state of Danckert's first map of North and South America. Danckerts here issues a version of De Witt's circa 1675 map of the same title (i.e., Burden 465, between state 3 and state 4 of that issue). Cartographically, the two are very similiar, and thus Burden's notes on the earlier apply. Of that map, Burden writes: "The map is cartographically drawn directly from De Wit's own wall map version published in 1672. The most notable improvement is the depiction of the five Great Lakes, this for the first time on a Dutch map. There is also an altered west coast depiction of the Hudson Bay region. Both features appear to have been taken from Guillaume Sanson's Amerique Septentrionale, published in 1669" (Burden 465). As in the De Wit map, the decorative cartouche on the present map by Danckerts draws from an earlier Visscher map of the western hemisphere. The present map is Burden's first state, with the additional cartouche at the top left, without the mapping of New Guinea and neighboring islands in the South Pacific, and without Terra Esonis in the north. In circa 1696, Danckerts would re-issue this map from a new plate, the present plate apparently having worn out or been damaged (see Burden 725). This earlier version, however, is considerably more scarce, particularly in its first state, with Burden noting that only "a handful of examples" of Danckert's atlas from this early period are extant.

Seine kriegerischen Erfolge, seine Grausamkeit und auch sein Wiederaufstieg, nachdem er in der Bastille wegen seiner Verstrickung in der "affaire des poisons" (Giftmischerinnenaffäre um La Voisin)eingekerkert war, brachten ihn in den Ruf, mit dem Teufel im Bunde zu stehen.

        A Discourse by M.

      Samuel Pufendorf, upon the Alliances Between Sweden and France: Wherein is shewn, how ill the same were observ'd on the part of France. Written in the Year 1680, by the express command of K. Charles XI of Sweden. To which is annex'd, the advice or remonstrance of some of the Royal Senate at Stockholm in 1671. Upon the question, of the crown of Sweden's entring into a league with France and England against Holland. Translated into English by J. Ozell. London, Sam Buckley, 1709. 8:o. (2),+ v,+ (blank),+ 72,+ v,+ (blank),+ 96 s. Enstaka fläckar och fuktränder. Nött samtida skinnband. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris (variant 1). Warmholtz 8533 not. Carlander III s. 568. Första engelska översättningen av Pufendorfs mot Frankrike riktade pamflett (utgiven samma år som den första franska), vilken följdes av en ny med titeln "Remarks on the proceedings of the French courts ..." 1730 och ytterligare en 1744, nu med titeln "French faith threatening and pernicious to all Europa, more especially to their own allies". Den första pagineringsföljden innehåller den latinska originaltexten, "De foederibus inter Sueciam et Galliam", och den andra den engelska översättningen. Originalet utgavs postumt i Haag 1708. Texten är en utredning av Pufendorf om resultaten av Sveriges tidigare allianser med Frankrike, skriven på begäran av Karl XI 1680, då denne ånyo funderade på att ingå en allians för att förstärka finanserna. Pufendorfs slutsats var att Frankrike alltid svikit givna löften
