        Cantus, Songs and Fancies, To Three, Four, or Five Parts, Both apt for Voices and Viols

      Printed in Aberdeen: by John Forbes, and are to be sold at his printing-house,, 1682. With a brief Introduction to Musick. As is taught in the Musick-School of Aberdeen. The Third Edition, much Enlarged and Corrected. Oblong small quarto (161 × 213 mm), in 2 parts. 19th-century stiff vellum, covers with two-line gilt ruled borders, lettered on front cover, spine with double gilt bands, marbled endpapers. Title printed within woodcut borders, woodcut arms on verso, full-page woodcut, smaller cuts in text, printed music, woodcut headpiece. Armorial bookplate of George Seton Veitch. Title extended at foot, a little marginal restoration to early and last leaves not affecting text, outer leaves slightly dusty, still a good copy. Rare early edition of the first Scottish music book. The Hero as Printer comments that "this work was the first published edition containing Scottish songs and the only music book which presents the music as well as the teaching method employed in a Scottish music school of the period." Among the many songs here is the old Scots carol, "Remember, O thou man", which is frequently cited as the source of the tune used for the British national anthem, "God Save the Queen". Wing attributes the work to Thomas Davidson, as the first edition title has "T.D." [i.e. Thomas Davidson] as the instructor of the "musick-schole", but Forbes signs the introduction here twice, and claims to have compiled the whole work himself. (Ironically, his introduction is actually plagiarized from Thomas Morley, A plaine and easie introduction to practicall musicke, 1597.) There are two so-called third editions, both dated 1682, one with engraved title, the other with variant letterpress title. Wing puts this issue second of the two, following Aldis, but ESTC more recently reverses the order. Forbes added a second part to this third edition, with divisional title: "Severall of the Choisest Italian Songs composed by Giovanni Giacomo Castoldi da Carravaggio. Together also, with some of the Best new English-Ayres. Collected from their chiefest Authors, All in Three Parts, Viz. Two Trebles and a Bass." All early editions are rare, and are usually found defective.

During the English Civil war he took the parliament's side but he acted with moderation throughout, taking no part in the trial of King Charles I or in the disputes between parliament and the army. His account of the civil war and the events surrounding it was published postumously by Arthur Annesley, Earl of Anglesey, "who took considerable liberties with the ms." (Lowndes, Bibliographer’s manual). Despite that, alongside Clarendon's history, it remains one of the most important contemporary accounts of the civil war period. , Folio 13" - 23" tall .

        Plate 92 - Red Frangipani

      Mark Catesby (1682-1749)Plate from The Natural History of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama IslandsLondon: 1731 - 1743; [1731-1771, 3rd edition]Hand-colored copper-plate engraving20" x 14"; 24" x 20 1/2" framedIn 1712, the English-born artist and naturalist Mark Catesby embarked on a series of expeditions to the southern colonies of British North America. Enthralled by the wildlife of the New World, he spent years traveling by foot through parts of present-day Virginia, Georgia, the Carolinas and the Bahamas. Over the course of his journeys, he encountered and documented uncountable varieties of animal and plant life that were entirely unknown to Europeans. His drawings and written observations were the raw material for an unprecedented project: a scientific account of previously uninvestigated wildlife, with illustrations taken from life. When Catesby returned to England from his final voyage to America in 1726, he was unable to afford the expense of having his drawings engraved professionally. Undeterred, he taught himself to etch with the assistance of Joseph Goupy, a French artist living in London, and went on to produce all but a few of the plates for his publication. He scrupulously monitored the coloring of the engravings, either painting the impressions himself or closely supervising the work to insure its fidelity to his preparatory studies. The result of Catesby’s tenacious effort was the most sweeping, complete and unique natural history study ever done. Widely considered a crowning achievement of 18th-century art and science, Catesby’s Natural History of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama Islands has lost none of its power to delight in the 250 years since its publication. This remarkable study of American plants, animals, and marine life provided an important model for later artists, including John James Audubon, who followed in Catesby’s footsteps a century later. The works illustrated here are among the masterpieces of Catesby’s Natural History. The artist’s charming, distinctive style is immediately apparent in these engravings, and Catesby’s enthusiasm for his subjects is palpable. Aside from their esthetic charm, however, Catesby’s illustrations were significant for other reasons. His pioneering attempts to describe and portray birds accurately, life-sized, and in botanical settings set him apart from his contemporaries and foreshadowed the work of Audubon and Alexander Wilson. He was the first to abandon the Indian names for his subjects, trying to establish scientific names based on generic relationships. Indeed, the great Linnaeus, working on his Systema Naturae at this time, used Catesby’s work as the basis of his system of binomial nomenclature for American species. For all these and many other reasons, these are magnificent prints both for their beauty and importance. The quality of the work was so far superior to foregoing accounts that many scholars rank Catesby as the first real naturalist in America.

        Historie der Sevarambes

      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 (see catalogue no. XXXX).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 parts 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 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.Its publishing history is complex, but suffice to say that the first part was published in London in 1675, and the first collected edition was published in Paris in 1682. 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).Davidson, 'A Book Collector's Notes', p. 43; not in Landwehr, 'VOC', but see 373 (note on 1701 edition and Vlamingh); Tiele, 'Nederlandsche Bibliographie', p. 111 (1701 edition).

With an Accurate and an Approved Index of all the Kingdoms, Provinces, Countries, Inhabitants, People, Cities, Mountains... Much wanted and desired in the former, and now annexed to this Last Impression, Revised and Corrected by the Author himself immediately before his Death. 4 volumes in one, folio (360 × 235mm). Engraved title and 4 large folding maps, Imprimatur leaf repaired at inner margin with slight loss of text on 5 lines. Slight foxing throughout, a good copy in contemporary calf, rubbed and scored in places, rebacked with the original label laid down. Sixth edition, complete with the imprimatur leaf at the front. Heylyn's Cosmographie first appeared in 1652, and was sufficiently well regarded that the council of state saw fit to obtain a copy for their better instruction. The book has great value for the history of California which is described in book IV. The folding map of the western hemisphere by Henry Seile, reissued by his widow Anna, is of the Goos type, based on the 1627 Speed map, with the addition of Drake's "Nova Albion" on the northern part of the "Island" of California. It has been described as "one of the most important English maps of the second half of the 17th century." Here it is credited to Anna Seile, engraved by Robert Vaughan and dated 1663, the map of Asia is similarly ascribed but the engraver given as John Goddard. The other two maps are for Chetwynde and dated 1666, that of Africa engraved by William Trevethen.

        Histoire générale des Insectes.

      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. Contemporary boards, spine with 2 red gilt lettered labels. Hagen II, 209; Horn & Schenkling 21794; Nissen ZBI, 4054. 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.

Fist edition- RICHARD CROMWELL'S COPY - of the first complete translation into English of Grotius' groundbreaking magnum opus, "De Jure Belli ac Pacis", the founding work of international law. The profoundly influential masterpiece - written during the Thirty Years' War, in the hope that rational human beings might be able to agree to legal limits on war's destruction - "made him famous throughout Europe... [t]he questions which he put forward have come to be the basis of the ultimate view of land and society. This was the first attempt to lay down a principle of right, and a basis for society and government, outside Church or Scripture... Grotius's principle of an immutable law, which God can no more alter than a mathematical axiom, was the first expression of the "droit naturel", the natural law which exercised the great political theorists of the eighteenth century, and is the foundation of modern international law." (PMM 125). Grotius's "The Rights of War and Peace" played a tremendous role in English law and politics and in the entire development of international law in general. Richard Cromwell too played a key rôle in English politics and law in the 17th century.When Oliver Cromwell died in 1658, his son Richard Cromwell became the second ruling Lord Protector of England, Scotland and Ireland. Though Richard Cromwell was in many ways a gifted politician, less brutal than his father and considered a decent and modest young man, the death of Oliver Cromwell caused the English Republic to collapse into feuding military and political factions.Richard Cromwell was thrown into a political situation he could not handle and ended up merely serving as Lord Protector for 9 months. His downfall came about through trying to support the civilian Parliament in a confrontation with the Army.The fact that Richard Cromwell is unable to contain the power struggle between the army and the Parliament leads directly to the collapse of the Protectorate and the reestablishment of the Commonwealth in 1659.It is no wonder that Grotius' great work should be of special interest to Richard Cromwell later on in life! "it is on the DIB (De Iure Bellis) that the bulk of Grotius' reputation rests. It consists of an introduction and three books, totalling more than 900 pages in translation. As with DIP, the introduction or "Prolegomena" holds the greatest interest for philosophers, for it is here that Grotius articulates and defends the philosophical foundations of the DIB. While philosophers are naturally attracted to the "Prolegomena," the body of the DIB is also redolent with themes of philosophical interest. Book One defines the concept of war, argues for the legitimacy of war, and identifies who may legitimately wage war. Book Two deals with the causes of war, the origins of property, the transfer of rights and more, while Book Three is dedicated primarily to the rightful conduct of belligerents in war. After the initial publication in 1625, Grotius ushered several more editions to press during his life, each time adding more references without substantially changing the arguments." (SEP)Living in the times of the Eighty Years' War between Spain and the Netherlands and the Thirty Years' War between Catholic and Protestant European nations (Catholic France being in the otherwise Protestant camp), Grotius was deeply concerned with matters of conflicts between nations and religions. His magnum opus was a monumental effort to restrain such conflicts on the basis of a broad moral consensus. It was begun in prison and published during his exile in Paris. Grotius's influence on international law is paramount, and is widely acknowledged all over the world. For instance, since 1999 the American Society of International Law holds an annual series of Grotius Lectures. Because of his theological underpinning of free trade, he is also considered an "economic theologist"."In the dedication of his great work, "De Jure Belli ac Pacis", to Louis XIII of France, Grotius addresses the king as "everywhere known by the name Just no less than that of Louis ... Just, when you call back to life laws that are on the verge of burial, and with all your strength set yourself against the trend of an age which is rushing headlong to destruction; ... when you offer no violence to souls that hold views different from your own in matter of religion; ... when by the exercise of your authority you lighten the burden of oppresses peoples."Grotius when writing this dedication and the Prolegomena to "De Jure Belli ac Pacis", published in 1625, was living in exile; Europe was war-torn; depression and suffering from hunger and cold prevailed in many regions; and of international law he could then say "in our day, as in former times, there is no lack of men who view this brance of law with contempt as having no reality outside of an empty name." The treaty of peace, embodying many of the universal and permanent principles which Grotius abstracted "from every particular fact" in those dark days of the early part of the Thirty Years' War, was not concluded till 23 years later. The year 1624 was, in the negotiation of the treaty, assumed to be the norm year for restoration of the "Status quo".History in the more than three centuries since Grotius wrote seems to have demonstrated the correctness of his view in spite of the fact that many a state has not yet realized that the state is "Truly fortunate which has justice for its own boundary line." In 1625 Grotius significantly said "there is no state so powerful that it may not sometime need the help of others outside itself, either for the purposes of trade, or even ward off the forces of many foreign nations united against it.To those desirous of understanding the fundamental principles which have motivated some of the greatest statesmen of modern time and the bases upon which a state which is to remain essentially sound must rest, a reading of Grotius' Prolegomena to the "Law of War and Peace" is commended." (George Grafton Wilson: "Grotius: Law of War and Peace.", p. 1. In: The American Journal of International Law, vol. 35, nr. 2, 1941). The earlier published English edition ("Of the Law of Warre and Peace". 8vo. London, 1654), was merely a translation of a small extract of the work._______The present copy has belonged to RICHARD CROMWELL and carries his signature to the first fly-leaf. Richard Cromwell (1626 - 1712), son of Oliver Cromwell, was the second ruling Lord Protector of England, Scotland and Ireland. He was surrounded by political chaos and served as Lord Protector for just under nine months, from 3 September 1658 until 25 May 1659. His régime was brought down by financial chaos and confrontation between Parliament and the Army. After his fall from power, a great joy to the Royalists, he was ridiculed and given the nicknames "Tumble Down Dick" and "Queen's Dick"."Born at Huntingdon on 4 October 1626, Richard was the third son of Oliver and Elizabeth Cromwell. Like his brothers Oliver and Henry, he served in the parliamentary army during the First Civil War but Richard's military career was brief and undistinguished. With the death of his elder brother Oliver in 1644, Richard became the eldest surviving son and heir to Oliver Cromwell. In May 1647, Richard was admitted a member of Lincoln's Inn. He was betrothed to Dorothy, the daughter of Richard Mayor (or Major) of Hursley in Hampshire in February 1648, but owing to disputes over the settlement, the marriage did not take place until May 1649. Richard and Dorothy lived on Mayor's estate at Hursley. During the 1650s, they had nine children, only four of whom survived into adulthood. Richard served as a Justice of the Peace in Hampshire, but despite his father's attempts to advise him, he fell into debt after exceeding his allowance. To Oliver's dismay, Richard neglected religion and devoted himself to hunting and field sports. Unlike his younger brother Henry, Richard was not appointed to the Nominated Assembly in July 1653 nor to public office when his father was named Lord Protector the following December. With the establishment of the Protectorate, Richard's status inevitably changed. As the Protector's eldest son, he was addressed as "Lord Richard", or even "Prince Richard", though sometimes derisively. He gradually began to take on a more prominent role in public affairs. In September 1654, he was elected MP for Hampshire in the First Protectorate Parliament and in November 1655 he was appointed to the Committee for Trade and Navigation and a number of other committees. He sat as MP for Cambridge University in the Second Protectorate Parliament (1656-8). In July 1657, Richard succeeded his father as Chancellor of the University of Oxford. Under the terms of the Humble Petition and Advice, the written constitution adopted in May 1657, Oliver Cromwell was empowered to name his successor as Lord Protector. There was no requirement to name his eldest son, but Oliver began to promote Richard's interests to a far greater extent than previously. In contrast to Oliver's first installation as Lord Protector, in which Richard had played no part, he was prominent in the second installation in June 1657, accompanying Oliver in the state coach and standing near him during the ceremony itself. Richard was made a member of the newly-established Upper House of Parliament during the autumn of 1657 and appointed to the Council of State in December. In January 1658, he was appointed honorary colonel of a cavalry regiment and in May a new warship was named the "Richard" in his honour. Immediately after Oliver Cromwell's death on 3 September 1658, Richard Cromwell was proclaimed Lord Protector in his place. The succession passed smoothly and was generally well-received around the country and in Europe, but a group of army officers petitioned for the appointment of a soldier as commander-in-chief rather than the new Protector, who unlike Oliver had not won their trust and loyalty in battle. The two most important officers in the army were Charles Fleetwood, who was generally compliant to the wishes of the soldiers, and John Disbrowe, who openly disliked Richard. The 13-man Council of State, which Richard had inherited from Oliver, was divided between a military group headed by Fleetwood and Disbrowe and a civilian group headed by John Thurloe. The army officers were suspicious of Thurloe's influence over Richard and there were clashes over the possible appointment of new councillors, though in fact Richard made no new appointments to the Council during his Protectorship. Army discontent was made worse because pay had fallen into arrears as the Protectorate's financial crisis deepened. Richard met senior army officers and attempted to win them over. Although he insisted upon retaining supreme command and the power to issue commissions, he appointed Fleetwood lieutenant-general and pledged that he would do all he could to clear arrears of pay. Richard's tactful yet firm stance quietened the army for a time and won him the support of several senior officers, including Major-Generals Whalley, Goffe and Howard. To strengthen his position further, Richard cultivated the friendship of General Monck in Scotland and secretary of state Thurloe. He appointed his brother Henry Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, with full authority over the army there.In order to raise much-needed finances, Richard was obliged to call a new parliament. The Third Protectorate Parliament assembled in January 1659. Richard gave an impressive opening speech and, after several weeks' debate, MPs endorsed the authority of the Protectorate. By early April 1659, it appeared that Richard Cromwell was firmly established as Oliver's successor. However, the Protectorate régime was vehemently opposed by republican "Commonwealthsmen" who worked to spread disaffection against Richard amongst the soldiers. Antagonism between army officers and the conservative majority in Parliament came to a head when the former Major-General William Boteler was threatened with impeachment for actions carried out under Oliver Cromwell's jurisdiction.Amid rumours of an army plot to seize Richard at Whitehall, Major-General Howard offered to arrest the leading conspirators, but once again, Richard succeeded in calming the situation at a face-to-face meeting with senior officers. However, Parliament insensitively began debating the re-organisation of the army and the formation of a new militia. Under this provocation, Fleetwood and Disbrowe demanded Parliament's dissolution. When Richard refused to comply, the Grandees called the soldiers stationed around London to a rendezvous at St James's. Richard called upon the army to rally to him at Whitehall, but the soldiers unanimously followed their officers. On 21 April, Major-General Disbrowe confronted Richard at Whitehall and insisted that he dissolve Parliament and entrust himself to the army, to which Richard reluctantly agreed. The Third Protectorate Parliament was dissolved on 22 April 1659, leaving the Council of Officers in control of the government.Richard was held under house arrest at Whitehall Palace. Fleetwood and Disbrowe intended to maintain the Protectorate under army control, but they were unable to resist the demands of junior officers and republicans for the recall of the Rump Parliament, which Oliver Cromwell had dismissed in 1653. Parliament re-assembled on 7 May 1659 and voted to abolish the Protectorate. With no clear lead from Richard, the English armies stationed in Scotland, Ireland and Dunkirk and the fleet all accepted the change of régime. Richard's renunciation of the Protectorship was read in Parliament on 25 May 1659.Heavily in debt, Richard retired into private life. In the summer of 1660 he left his wife and family in England and went into exile on the Continent. Regarded as a dangerous person by the Restoration government, he remained abroad until 1680. On his return to England, he lived quietly at Cheshunt in Hertfordshire, under the assumed name of John Clarke until his death in July 1712. Often derided as "Tumbledown Dick", Richard Cromwell was generally acknowledged to be a modest and engaging young man who inherited severe financial problems and constitutional difficulties that were not of his own making. His downfall came about through trying to support the civilian Parliament in a confrontation with the Army where he had little personal influence." (David Plant: British Civil Wars, Commonwealth and Protectorate 1638-60)

      London, printed for John Hancock & Enoch Prosser 1682.. Sm. 8vo, small engraved portrait by Van Hove (cut round & mounted), [8], 150 pp., advt leaf, early marginalia in brown ink, slightly browned & foxed, later morocco. Wing T3227. Only edition, scarce. The body of a wool merchant, Sir Edmund Berry Godfrey (1621-1678), was found in a ditch on Primrose Hill in 1678. He was certainly murdered, and the murder was probably in some way connected with his having taken the deposition of Titus Oates on the alleged Popish plot, but the mystery has never been cleared up. Primrose Hill was then known as Greenberry Hill; and one of the oddities of the case is that the three men charged with his murder were called Green, Berry and Hill (round up the usual suspects?). This is the most important contemporary source; it concludes with two poems. This copy is annotated in a contemporary hand on the title and elsewhere by someone very interested - perhaps in some way involved? - in the case. ESTC calls for a portrait, but I am not certain that the one here is not a replacement. vf21

Intorno alla met? del XVII secolo, per il Ducato dei Savoia, attento al proprio ruolo politico, si imponeva la diffusione di un'immagine magnifica che solo un'opera editoriale di grandiose proporzioni avrebbe potuto assicurare: un libro figurato, ove immagini e testi risultassero reciproco completamento per la celebrazione della dinastia. Nasceva cos?, presso i Blaeu, intorno al 1661, il "Theatrum Statuum Regiae Celsitudinis Sabaudiae Ducis Pedemontii Principis Cypri Regis", manifesto politico del duca di Savoia, diretto a tutte le altri corti europee. Nell'opera (due volumi in folio), le incisioni si fanno testimonianza ed esaltazione della grandezza del sovrano: nel primo tomo, alle antiporte, ritratti, dediche e carte geografiche, fanno seguito le vedute della citt? capitale con le sue piazze, i suoi pi? insigni edifici civili e religiosi, le certose e le abbazie, i castelli e le altre strutture di difesa dello Stato, tutti attributi di decoro e magnificenza; seguono quindi le vedute delle principali citt? del ducato. Il secondo volume descrive le terre della Savoia, del Vercellese e del Monferrato, i monumenti storici e archeologici del ducato e le cose da contemplare, perch? straordinarie. L'opera riproduceva grosso modo lo schema di precedenti imprese editoriali realizzate dai Blaeu (? chiaro il riferimento al "Teatro delle citt? principali delle Fiandre..").

      London, printed for the author 1682.. engr. throughout (signed 'Ben: Rhodes sculpsit' on title), 24 leaves (all numbered except for f.l: portrait) printed on one side & arranged as 12 openings, very nice copy in orig. sheep ('Price bound 1s. 6d.' on title), some abrasion but joints perfect. Wi ng M941A; Alston VIII, 146. First edition, first state (?) of Mason's second shorthand book. The two states differ in the imprint, which here reads: "Neare the Royal Exchange. Where the books are to be had, & such as desire to learn. may (by him) be expediciously taught, at very reasonable rates; the booke is also sold by these book-sellers. Mr. Benj. Alsop at the Angel & Bible in the Poultry. Mr. Wilkins at ye Starr in Cheap side. Mr. Ben: Harris under ye Royall Exch: Mr. Thom Fox in Westminster Hall: and severall others". The second (?) state substitutes Jacob Sampson for Benjamin Harris.Such a change is common enough with moveable type, where it is easy, but here the title has been completely re-engraved. This needs good cause and I suggest that it was Benjamin Harris rather than Jacob Sampson who had to drop out of the enterprise: he was constantly in trouble with the authorities and at this time was in deep, fined the huge sum of £500 and put in the pillory for publishing his Protestant Petition, April 30, 1681. He continued his business in England ("an uneasie place for honest men", said his friend John Dunton) until his difficulties led him to move to Boston in 1686 - where he both became the first American journalist and published the New England Primer. This may be supported by the extreme rarity of this state. ESTC online locates only at Univ. of London (sc. W.J.Carlton's copy). Carlton himself (Bibl.Pepysiana IV, 80) knows also Sir Isaac Pitman's. Pitman bequeathed his books to [what is now] the University of Bath; the archivist kindly reports to me that this is a poor copy, discarded from Birmingham Free Library, extensively repaired & lacking the frontispiece - not a copy Sir Isaac would have bought if he had had a choice. No second edition is extant. If I have got the story right there may never have been one: the Harris state was briefly available in 1682, the Sampson state until the stock was exhausted; when the "third edition" was printed in 1687 the publishers reckoned that these had been two different editions. 21vf

"The purpose of this work was to describe what an envoy does and how he should conduct himself. He was on the threshold of a new development and gave the literature on diplomacy a new orientation". Wicquefort was from 1642 Brandenburg diplomat in Paris, but was imprisoned by Cardinal Mazarin in 1659 and in 1660 expelled.
