Bourges, Jacques de & Pallu, Francois
Exceptionally bound, primary French source-books on Vietnam, Siam & and the Far East. 1683 & 1682. Paris. Charles Angot. Two volumes in one, in 8vo. Eighteenth-century sang-de-boeuf calf, triple rule gilt border to boards, spine richly gilt in compartments, all edges gilt, expertly recased, some wear to boards, corners very slightly bumped. A fine copy lightly browned, ownership inscription to first title. A finely bound copy of the first French accounts of Siam ?that of Bourges-, with early relations on China, Vietnam, Tonkin and the East Indies. The Bourges is in its third edition and the Pallu in its second edition (all editions are rare). Father de Bourges (c.1630 - 1714) was a member of the first Catholic mission to Siam, arriving with his two fellow missionaries in 1662 to Ayuthaya. Since Siam was tolerant of other religions it became a safe place for the missionaries to establish themselves, and in 1664 a second group led by Monseigneur Pallu joined the fathers in Siam after a two-year journey overland. Francois Pallu (1626 - 1684) was a French Bishop and missionary in Asia and a founding member of the Paris Foreign Missions Society; he was originally recruited by Alexander de Rhodes and sent to the Far East along with other missionaries ?namely La Motte. Both volumes together combine a considerable portion of the French knowledge of the East at the end of the 17th century. Distinguished provenance: Charles de Lorraine (possibly Charles III, Duke de Elbeuf), his signature on the first title page. Cordier Sinica, 827.

Sieur de Mezeray John Bulteel [translator]
London: Printed by T. N. for Thomas Basset, Samuel Lowndes, Christopher Wilkinson, William Cademan, and Jacob Tonson, 1683 A fair copy of the first English translation of this classic work by the then Historiographer of France, Francois Eudes de Mezeray 1610-1683.

DAMPIER, William.
Hill I, pp. 75-78; Howgego D7; Sabin 18381. First French edition of William Dampier's account of his voyage around the world and especially to the south seas in the years 1683 to 1691. Dampier (1651-1715) sailed to Sierra Leone, from there to the Falkland Islands, Cape Horn, Peru, Guatemala, Mexico, the Philippines, Vietnam, China, Indonesia, and further to New Guinea, in the area which was to become known as Dampier Land. He went ashore in Australia, sailed on to Sumatra, the Cape of Good Hope, and back to Europe. Although John Brooke probably shipwrecked on the Australian coast in 1621 without knowing what it was, Dampier was otherwise the first Englishman to set foot in Australia. Dampier had spent several years as a buccaneer, but in the present book he diplomatically made no attempt to exploit the more sensational aspects of his adventures, concentrating on hydrographic, geographic and scientific details. This helped him establish his legitimacy, bringing immediate academic acclaim rather than condemnation as a pirate.With bookplates. The edge of 2 folding plates slightly tattered (not affecting the image) and a few minor marginal stains, but otherwise in very good condition. The bindings with minor stains and worn at the extremities and hinges but still good. First French edition of an account of an important voyage around the world, including the first successful English landing in Australia.

London : Printed, for Thomas Basset and Richard Chiswell, 1683-01-01. Hardcover. Good. Folio. Contemporary leather, rebacked in early 20th century leather, red leather spine label. Lacks portrait. Rubbing to edges and joints. Marginal soiling and browning. Contents: "The first entitled, Jani anglorum facies altera, rendered into English with large notes thereupon, by Redman Westcot. The second, England's epinomis. The third, of the original of Ecclesiastical jurisdictions of testaments. The fourth, of the disposition or administration of intestate goods. The three last never before extant." <br> Selden is regarded as England?????????????ú?????????????s first legal historian. Influenced by the humanist movement spilling over from the Continent, Selden investigated the past to inform his understanding of the present. He consulted contemporary primary sources and read them closely, exemplifying the shift from medieval antiquarianism to a more modern approach to history. <br> Jani Anglorum Facie Altera (The Back-face of the English Janus) and England's Epinomis, an allusion to a dialogue in the style of Plato. In addition to being among the first works of Selden's career, they are also notable for being among his first efforts as a historian. While both discuss early English governance and laws, Jani Anglorum offers Selden's vision of the English constitution as a mixed monarchy. For Selden, this meant a state with shared sovereignty between monarch, nobles, clergy, and freemen - a provocative position to the absolutist Stuart kings.

Ovid
Typographia Blaviana, Amstelodami [Amsterdam] 1683 - 3 vols., 8vo, pp. [xvi], 832, [14], [2, blank]; 805, [11]; 810, [10]. Each volume with an engraved title-page (vol. 1 with a typographical title-page as well); vol. 2 with full-page engravings within the pagination. Contemporary vellum boards, spines lettered in ink. Some minor spotting, one or two edge-tears, a dampmark to fore-margin of first 30 leaves in vol. 2. Vellum somewhat dusty, front pastedown of vol. 1 partially torn. Bookplate of G.E. Larden to front pastedown of vols. 2 and 3 (possibly removed from vol. 1), vol. 3 with the ownership inscription of G.H. Larden to margin of title-page and flyleaf (the latter also giving the place as Macclesfield). &apos;I have classed all those impressions of Ovid, printed at the same place, and more or less partaking of the editorial labours of N.

CANTELLI GIACOMO.
1683. Incisione in rame, mm 450x580. Piacevole e non comune carta tratta dall'opera Il Mercurio Geografico, degli editori romani De Rossi e per la cura di Giacomo Cantelli da Vignola, geografo del Duca d'Este. L'atlante risulta edito dal 1690 circa con diverse edizioni successive. La carta si estende da Sumatra alla Nuova Guinea e Australia settentrionale. La carta raffigura inoltre l'isola di Singapore e riporta interessanti particolari relativi alle Isole delle Spezie, al Borneo e alle Filippine. Nell'angolo in basso a sinistra è riportato il titolo all'interno dell'ampio cartiglio, decorato da sirene, tritoni e putti che giocano. Giacomo Cantelli nacque a Vignola, come ribadisce con la sua firma, e divenne il primo cartografo ufficiale della Corte di Modena, nel 1685, quando il Duca Francesco II lo nominò cartografo e custode della biblioteca. Buon esemplare, smarginata, tracce di colore in controparte a destra in alto. Quirino, Philippine Cartography, p. 112 Copper engraving, mm 450x580. Scarce map extending from Sumatra to New Guinea and northern Australia. Singapore Island is identified and interesting details are provided on Spice Islands, Borneo and the Philippines. In lower left corner a large title cartouche, decorated with mermaids, mermen and playful putti. Giacomo Cantelli was born in Vignola, as he remarked with his signature, and was the first official cartographer of the Court of Modena, in 1685, when the Duke Francis II appointed him geographer. Good example with trimmed margins and a brown stain at right handside. Quirino, Philippine Cartography, p. 112

[Contemporary Account of the Rye House Plot Intended to Assassinate King Charles II, with the Last Speeches of the Conspirators William, Lord Russell and Algernon Sidney Delivered Before Their Executions].

It appears to have been founded on Anti-Catholic sentiments (which would have been shared by Sir Thomas Phillipps later), which feared that Charles II was too closely allied to the Catholic rulers of Europe. An extremist Whig group plotted to hide troops in Rye House, a fortified castle in Hertfordshire, in order to ambush the king and duke as they passed on their way to the horse races at Newmarket. However, a fire in Newmarket caused their plans to change and the plotters were exposed, put on trial and imprisoned or executed. The present … [Click Below for Full Description]

He attended nearby Strixton School and then Clare Hall (now College) Cambridge, gaining his BA in 1665 and his MA in 1668. He served his curacy in Isham, Northants, and in 1668 became Vicar of Stantonbury, Bucks. His marriage to Mary probably occurred at that time, as their first child was christened in Stantonbury in 1674. He was appointed Rector of Water Stratford that year and the baptisms of his five remaining children are in its church registers, as are the deaths of his wife in 1688 and John himself in 1694.
