      4. Mit wiederh. Holzschn.-Druckermarke am Titel u. am Ende. 8 nn. (das letzte weiß), 284 num. Bll., Pgmt. d. Zt. m. goldgepr. Rückenschild. Eines von 300 Exemplaren dieses Nachdruckes der berühmten Ventisettana auf Papier und mit Typen des 16. Jahrhunderts frühes Beispiel einer Bücherfälschung. Der Nachdruck, der auf Kosten von S. Ferrari (nach anderen Quellen des britischen Konsuls in Venedig und Bibliophilen Joseph Smith, 1682-1770) von E. Orlandini besorgt und von Pasinello verlegt wurde, ist mit der Originalausgabe nahezu identisch. Dem Fälscher sind jedoch einige Fehler unterlaufen, an denen sein Neudruck erkennbar ist (z. B. Decemeron in der 7. Zeile des 2. nn. Blattes). - Every one of the numerous reprints of modern times must leave first place to the Ventisettana (Gamba). - Diese sehr ähnliche und schöne, aber incorrecte Nachbildung erschien auf Kosten des Consuls Smith zu Venedig bei Pasinello 1729, ist von St. Orlandini besorgt und bloß 300 Exemplare abgezogen. Ein Brand hat ihre Seltenheit noch vermehrt (Ebert). - Einband leicht berieben, bestoßen bzw. fleckig. Rückenschild m. kl. Randfehlstellen. Die ersten Bll. schwach wasserrandig. Vereinzelt min. stockfleckig. Insgesamt schönes u. breitrandiges Exemplar. - Adams B 2147 Brunet I, 999 Graesse I, 449f. Gamba 172 Anm. Ebert I, 2521.

        Short Treatise Touching Sheriffs Accompts

      1682. First Edition . (BROWNE, Thomas) HALE, Matthew. Short Treatise Touching Sheriffs AccomptsÂ… to which is Added, a Tryal of Witches, at the Assizes held at Bury St. Edmonds, for the County of Suffolk, on the 10th of March 1664. London: Will. Shrowsbery / William Shrewsbery, 1683 / 1682. Small octavo, contemporary full brown sheep rebacked, red morocco spine label, raised bands. $4200.First edition of A Tryal of Witches on the notorious witchcraft trial at Bury St. Edmonds, one of the key witchcraft trials of the 17th century, a psychiatric and legal cornerstone so influential that ""the Salem witch-hunts might not have taken place if there had not been a trial at Bury St. Edmonds."" In one volume with Hale's 1683 Short Treatise Touching Sheriffs Accompts.According to the charges listed in Tryal of Witches, Rose Cullender and Amy Drury, two elderly widows, had caused children to become suddenly and violently ill, to vomit nails and pins, and to see mice, ducks, and flies invisible to others. Additionally, a toad was alleged to have run out of the bed of the young mother of one of their victims. When thrown into the fire, the toad ""made a great and horrible Noise, and after a space there was a flashing in the Fire like Gun-powder, making a noise like the discharge of a Pistol, and thereupon the Toad was no more seen nor heard"" (6). The pair was ultimately hanged, though neither confessed to being a witch.The case ""strongly influenced the most notable of America's witchcraft prosecutions, the Salem trials of 1692. Indeed, the Salem witch-hunts might not have taken place if there had not been a trial at Bury St. Edmonds: the events at Salem notoriously imitated those at Bury. Cotton Mather in his Wonders of the Invisible World included a large number of excerpts and interpretations of the Bury trial in order to justify what happened at Salem"" (Bunn & Geis 7). Sir Thomas Browne, a noted physician to whom Tryal of Witches has been attributed, played a principal role as the prosecution's medical expert. In his earlier writings, specifically Religio Medici (1642), Browne asserted during the Bury St. Edmonds assize that ""the persons were BewitchedÂ… [since] the Devil in such cases did work upon the Bodies of Men and WomenÂ… to stir up, and excite such humours super-abounding in their Bodies to a great excess""(41). Hale, whose Short Treatise is in the same volume, was a highly respected and influential jurist. ""In his statement to the jury, Hale made no doubt at all of the reality of witchcraft, citing the Scriptures and the laws enacted against witchcraft as proof of its existenceÂ… Browne's testimony in support of the reality of witchcraft may be the first documented example of expert testimony by a physician in reference to a psychiatric issue. His testimony also played a role in the Salem witch trials, as Cotton Mather quoted it to allay the doubts of those who challenged the reality of witchcraft"" (Norman Library 966). Hale's Short Treatise Touching Sherriffs Accompts separately issued the same year, no priority established. Bound in one volume as issued with first edition of Tryal of Witches containing separate 1682 title page. Wing H260. ESTC R14358. Text generally fresh and clean, light rubbing and early repairs to boards. An extremely good copy.

        English Liberties

      1682. First Edition . (CARE, Henry). English Liberties: Or, The Free-Born Subject's Inheritance. Containing I. Magna Charta, The Petition of Right, the Habeas Corpus Act… II. The Proceedings in Appeals of Murther; The Work and Power of Parliaments… As also the Oath and Duty of Grant and Petty Juries. III. All the Laws against Conventicles and Protestant Differeters… And an Abstract of all the Laws against Papists. London: Printed by G. Larkin, for Benjamin Harris, [1682]. Small octavo (3-1/2 by 6 inches), contemporary full polished brown sheep rebacked with original spine laid down, later red morocco spine label. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $16,000.Rare first edition, containing printings of the Magna Charta and other seminal documents on the separation of church and state, the right to religious liberty, trial by jury and other founding principles. It was designed to ""slip into one's pocket… [and] had more to do with preparing the minds of American colonists for the American Revolution than the larger but less accessible works of Coke, Sidney and Locke"" (Hudson, 580-85). Care's influence is clear ""in the writings of the founding fathers of the United States—Samuel Adams, John Adams, John Dickinson and Alexander Hamilton… Jefferson added two copies of English Liberties to his library and arranged that it be included in the library of the University of Virginia"" (Schwoerer, 231-5). A handsome copy in contemporary sheep. Care's English Liberties contains ""the most important documents and statements in English history and law concerning liberty, property and the rights of the individual… Benjamin Franklin knew its contents thoroughly"" (Lemay, Life, 74). This first edition features a printing of the Magna Charta, ""a symbol of political liberty and the foundation of constitutional government"" (Grams, Great Experiment, 95), and was published in 1682 ""to provide uneducated and inexperienced English persons with documents and information about the law and their rights… praising England's 'fundamental laws [as] coeval with government' and describing the Magna Charta as 'Declaratory of the principal grounds of the Fundamental Laws and Liberties of England.' Celebrating law in another piece as second only to the gospel, he described it in English Liberties as 'the Best Birthright the Subject hath'… Care regarded the essence of this birthright as the 'privilege not to be exempt from the law of the land, but to be freed in Person and Estate from Arbitrary Violence and Oppression'"" (Morrison & Zook, Revolutionary Currents, 46-7). ""Care advocated a radical theory of liberty of the religious conscience for all persons… and argued for the principle of separation of church and state… his ideas are comparable to those of John Locke on that subject and were in print before Locke's Letter on Toleration."" Care especially promoted ""an abiding respect for the merits of trial by jury as a bulwark of English rights and liberties. English Liberties… helped to transmit this 'jury ideology' and other ideas about fundamental laws and the rights and liberties of Englishmen to 18th-century England and the American colonies"" (Schwoerer, Ingenious Mr. Henry Care, xxvi). On publication, English Liberties ""became a publishing phenomenon, with successive editions circulating around the Atlantic world in the 18th century, its small size—it could literally fit into a pocket—enabling knowledge of English rights to reach the peripheries of the empire"" (Yirush, Settler, Liberty and Empire, 29). It is said to have ""had more to do with preparing the minds of American colonists for the American Revolution than the larger but less accessible works of Coke, Sidney and Locke"" (Hudson, William Penn's English Liberties, 585).In America, English Liberties ""played an important role in spreading concepts about English law, history, government, liberties and especially juries… Colonists found in Care's English Liberties support of their views about the Saxons' Magna Charta as a reaffirmation of old laws guaranteeing the rights of all freemen, and ways to protect themselves against oppression… Care's vocabulary and ideas appeared in the writings of the founding fathers of the United States—Samuel Adams, John Adams, John Dickinson and Alexander Hamilton. In their speeches and writings may be found exactly the same language that Care used in English Liberties when he praised the 'two main pillars of the British Constitution,' identifying those pillars as parliament and trial by jury… Americans started with Care's statement that the 'two Grand Pillars' of an Englishman's birthright shone 'most conspicuously in Parliament and juries' and reasoned from it that since the Constitution was 'founded in the Common Rights of Mankind,' and since the 'Rights of Nature' were 'happily interwoven' in its 'ancient fabrick,' the right to parliament and juries was 'properly the birthright of free men everywhere'… Care's ideas, like those of William Penn and John Locke, which they profoundly resemble, were ahead of their time… Penn silently lifted a sizable portion of English Liberties… into his Excellent Priviledge [sic] of Liberty and Property, which was printed in Philadelphia in 1687… The Library Company of Philadelphia, founded in 1731 by Franklin, acquired the 1719 [English] edition of English Liberties in 1764… Jefferson added two copies of English Liberties to his library and arranged that it be included in the library of the University of Virginia"" (Schwoerer, 231-5). Care and his publisher Larkin, who was also William Penn's printer, were frequently threatened not only with arrest and imprisonment, but also with physical injury. Many of Care and Larkin's publications were seized by the authorities and Care ""was called before government authorities for seditious libel five times between 1679 and 1685"" (ODNB). ""In 1689, seven years after the publication of… English Liberties, Parliament presented King William III and Queen Mary a declaration that became known as the Bill of Rights… In the colonies, as in England itself, Americans would celebrate English liberties as their birthright"" (Davis, Mintz et al., Boisterous Sea of Liberty, 83). With woodcut-engraved headpiece and initial. Larkin printed three 228-page issues of the first edition with variant title pages, no priority established: two with no imprint date on the title pages: one ""for John How"" and one ""for Benjamin Harris"" (this copy) along with one with the imprint date of 1682 on the title page for ""most Booksellers."" Schwoerer, Ashcraft and others attribute the anonymously published English Liberties to Care, while some cite Penn as author. Ashcraft offers, as support, ""an advertisement for English Liberties in the September 2-6, 1862 issue of the True Protestant Mercury [that] makes it likely it appeared in late August of that year"" (Morrison & Zook, 205n). Wing SCT ""gives the date as '1862(?)' but internal and other evidence shows incontrovertibly that the date is 1682"" (Schwoerer, 288n, 194). Precedes the 1721 first American edition. Bound without initial blank leaf, two-leaf publisher's advertisement; page 191 mispaginated as issued. ESTC R31286. See Sowerby 2702, 2703; Sweet & Maxwell I:154-55; Sabin 10819. Bookplate of bibliophile Robert J. Hayhurst. Small shelf label. Plain bookplate with trace of owner signature.Faint dampstaining to text and front board, a bit of marginal wormholing. A near-fine copy of this profoundly influential work.

      Ou l'on expose clairement la manière lente & presqu' insensible de l'accroissement de leurs membres, & ou l'on decouvre evidemment l'erreur ou l'on tombe d'ordinaire au sujet de leur prétendué transformation. Utrecht, G. de Walcheren, 1682. Small-4to. pp. (8), 215, (1), with woodcut title-vignette, 1 folded table and 13 (10 folded) engraved plates.

First French edition; the original Dutch edition was published in 1669, entitled 'Historia Insectorum generalis'. "Swammerdam's thesis about insects was fundamentally new and significant. For his contemporaries, as for Aristotle, there existed three good arguments, that not only placed the insects far from the higher animals, but even tended to remove them from the realm of subjects open to scientific study. These arguments were: insects lack internal anatomy; they originate by spontaneous generation; and they develop by metamorphosis. Swammerdam believed that all three arguments were false and devoted a wide variety of investigations to refute these ideas" (D.S.B. XIII, pp. 168-175). One leaf with 2 small tears.

        Curieuse aenmerckingen der bysonderste Oost en West-Indische verwonderens-waerdige dingen; nevens die van China, Africa, en andere gewesten des werelds...

      Utrecht: Johannes Ribbius, 1682. Four volumes, quarto, with an allegorical frontispiece to each volume, 15 folding engraved maps by Sanson and 60 engravings by Romeyn de Hooghe (many folding); contemporary vellum. A beautiful set of the first edition of this handsome work on the East Indies and other parts of the world; with a wonderful series of sixty engraved plates, in fine well-inked impressions, by the Dutch master of book-illustration and print-making, Romeyn de Hooghe (1645-1708). De Hooghe's engravings show the treasures to be had from the New World, often depicted with Dutch colonists looking on as natives work. They are accompanied by a series of folding maps by the important French cartographer Nicolas Sanson d'Abbeville. A revised version would be published as Les Indes Orientales et Occidentales in 1710.The text is based on a variety of original voyage accounts, and gives extensive descriptions of new world peoples and their products. The engravings offer a baroque profusion of images, every plate overflowing with pictorial elements incorporating peoples, customs, plants and animals, as well as views of the East Indies and particularly Indonesia, and India, Japan, the West-Indies, Brazil, even Persia, Turkey, Abyssinia and South Africa. "The illustrations by Romeyn de Hooghe belong to the most interesting of his oeuvre... " (Landwehr).The publication is discussed at length, and a number of the Romeyn de Hooghe images are reproduced, by Benjamin Schmidt iin "Inventing Exoticism: Geography, Globalism, and Europe's Early Modern World" (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2015). Some light worming at the end of the first volume but a fine set.

        Historie der Sevarambes. Volkeren die een Gedeelte van het darde Vast-land bewoonen, gemeenlijk Zuid-land genaamd.

      Amsterdam: T. van Hoorn, 1682. Small quarto, four parts in one volume (part 4 with separate pagination), engraved frontispiece by J. Luiken (dated 1683) and 16 plates (repairs to tears in two plates, one with insubstantial loss at bottom corner); a few upper margins a little short but a very good copy in full vellum antique. Very rare, the first fully illustrated edition of this seventeenth-century imaginary voyage to western Australia, based on the story of the wreck of the VOC ship Vergulde Draeck in 1656. The plates are thus early - if imaginary - depictions of the Australian coast, and include two coastal scenes depicting the first meeting with the local population, the Australian court, and the fabulous fauna.The importance of the detailed and inventive illustrations has been overlooked: after the various editions of Pelsaert, this is the second major work to depict life and conditions on the Australian mainland, however fancifully. This work also has an important connection with Vlamingh's exceedingly rare Journaal wegens de Voyagie of 1701, as Vlamingh's very real voyage to Australia in 1696-7 only made it separately into print as a companion volume to the second Dutch edition of this imaginary work.The story is based on the 1656 wreck of the Vergulde Draeck, which ran aground on the coast north of modern-day Perth. Seventy-five of the crew and passengers made it ashore. The captain Pieter Albertsz despatched a crew of seven in a small boat to Batavia and a rescue expedition was mounted, but found no trace of the survivors; the possibility that some of the crew survived on mainland Australia was an enticing fiction. Vairasse openly used this real-life voyage as the model for his own, having the similarly named Goude Draak wreck in western Australia the same year as its namesake. After the ship founders, some seventy-four women and three hundred and seven men survive on the barren shore, from whence they journey to the land of the Sevarambes, an Australian utopia.The work, which also borrows features from the wreck of the Batavia, is one of the most important imaginary voyages to Terra Australis, and is cited as a direct influence on Swift. The book thus forms an important link in the long history of seventeenth-century Dutch exploration of the west Australian coast, not least because it dates from a time when the lines between imaginary and real voyages were blurred.This Dutch edition was translated by Gerard van Broekhuizen the same year as the French collected edition, and seemingly based on the French text. The frontispiece is by Jan Luyken, and the plates (four signed) by Johannes van den Aveele (or Avelen).

        The Medall a Satyre against Sedition. By the Authour of Absalom and Achitophel.

First edition, second issue: 'the second of Dryden's political satires'.The acquittal of the Earl of Shaftesbury on charges of treason for opposing the succession of the Catholic James was regarded as a great Whig victory. Flushed with success, they issued a medal, Shaftesbury's head on the obverse, the sun rising over the Tower of London on the reverse. It was the perfect prompt for Dryden's mock-heroic satire: 'Of all our Antick Sights, and Pageantry, Which English Ideots run in crowds to see, The Polish Medall bears the prize alone... '.

        Les Mœurs des Chrétiens.

      A Paris, chez la Veuve Gervais Clouzier, 1682. - in-12. 6ff. 492pp. Plein maroquin rouge à la Du Seuil, dos à nerfs orné, tranches dorées sur marbrure (reliure de l'époque, coins émoussés, coiffe inférieure un peu élimée). Edition Originale de l'un des ouvrages les plus célèbres de Claude Fleury (1640-1723), que Voltaire notamment tenait pour l'un des meilleurs historiens de l'église de tous les temps. "Fleury demeura longtemps le conseiller et l'ami tant de Bossuet que de Fénelon. ( ) Bossuet sut tirer profit de sa grande érudition et de ses connaissances juridiques et politiques ; en reconnaissance il le fit élire à l'Académie française en 1696. Mais l'influence de l'abbé Fleury fut plus grande encore sur Fénelon ; elle est en particulier sensible dans les vues politiques et économiques du Télémaque" (Encyclopedia Universalis). Ouvrage un peu manipulé, quelques taches, mais bon exemplaire toujours plaisant dans sa reliure de l'époque en maroquin rouge à la Du Seuil. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Emblemata Amatoria. Emblemes d'Amour en Quatre Langue

      London: "Chez L'Amoureaux", 1682. Plate 20 and text 21 mounted back-to-back, some pale browning, vellum somewhat soiled. 8vo (140 x 95 mm). Engraved throughout. Engraved title, sonnet in French, frontispiece, sonnet in Dutch, 44 engraved plates by Jan van Vianen, each facing text in Latin, Italian, French and Dutch, each printed on one side only. Early 18th-century vellum Provenance: C.J.M. Kauscol (inscription on flyleaf); William Charles Smith (bookplate, 1882 gift inscription from "F.R.S."). Although the imprint is given as London (Londre), this edition appears to predate that of Ayres of 1683, as Landwehr claims. The engravings are much more finely executed, with greater detail. At least five editions were issued between 1683 and 1714 in London by Philip Ayres. These were based on the love emblems of Crispyn de Passe, Otto Vaenius, Heinsius, and Thronus Cupidinus. The Dutch artist Jan van Vianen went to England in his youth and, according to Praz, reworked his plates (in the reverse) from the originals, adding better perspective than in the originals. Landwehr, Emblem and fable books, 216; Praz, pp. 127-131 & 323; De Vries, Emblemata 232 & p. 43.
