      Frankfurt und Leipzig, Joh. Köler für Christian Weidmann, 1684. - Sehr seltene erste Ausgabe dreier Schauspiele, die an drei Tagen nacheinander, nämlich am 2., 3. und 4. März 1683 von Weises Schülern aufgeführt wurden. "Das bedeutendste und lustigste dieser drei Dramen ist das Lust-Spiel 'Von der Verkehrten Welt' . Die scherzhafte Idee, daß alle Verhältnisse des Lebens auf den Kopf gestellt scheinen, so daß z. B. die Frau um den Mann freit, der Herr dem Diener Rechnung ablegt, der Käufer zur gekauften Ware noch Geld erhält usw., ist gut durchgeführt und gibt Anlaß zu vielen drolligen Dialogen und Situationen ." (Seebaß). Jedes Drama hat einen eigenen Titel, die beiden letzteren auch einen eigenen Verlags- und Druckvermerk. Die Musik zu den Schauspielen stammt laut Vorwort von dem Organisten und Komponisten Johann Krieger (1658-1735), seit 1682 Musikdirektor in Zittau und von Händel sehr geschätzt. "Daß Weise seinen vielen pädagogischen Publikationen zum Trotz kein trockener Theoretiker war, bezeugen die humorvollen, aus dem Leben gegriffenen Dramen, in die er nicht selten musikalische Einlagen aufnahm" (Dünnhaupt). – Sehr selten.

        Trauer- Freuden- und Schäffer-Spiele. Nebst einer Beschreibung aller Obristen über das gantze Land Schlesien. 10 Teile in 1 Band. Mit 1 (statt 9) doppelblattgr. Frontispiz. Pergamentbd d. Z. (fleckig) mit handschriftl. Rückentitel.

      Breslau, Fellgiebel, (1684). - Sehr seltene erste Gesamtausgabe dieses Dramatikers in der Nachfolge Lohensteins. Von Hallmann (1640?-1716?) ist wenig mehr als dieser Sammelband seiner Bühnenwerke bekannt. Als dramatischer Dichter von achtzehn zum Teil ungedruckt gebliebenen Bühnenwerken – acht wurden zwischen 1662 und 1671 uraufgeführt, lediglich vier erschienen in Einzeldrucken – war Hallmann auf der Höhe seines Schaffens eine von den Zeitgenossen geschätzte Persönlichkeit. Dennoch lassen sich weder Geburts- noch Sterbedatum mit Sicherheit feststellen. "Als Gerichtspraktikant fand er Anstellung in Breslau, wo er sich in poetischen Nebenstunden einen Namen als Dramatiker und Gelegenheitsdichter schuf. Seine ausgesprochen opernhaft wirkenden Bühnenwerke wurden nachweislich wiederholt aufgeführt. Auch bei festlichen Anlässen, wie der Kaiserhochzeit 1673 oder der Breslauer Bischofsweihe 1676 war es stets H., der zur poetischen Würdigung der Feierlichkeiten herangezogen wurde. Die letzten Lebensjahre verbrachte er offenbar in größter Armut, vergebens versuchend, sich durch gelegentliche Aufführungen seiner dramatischen Werke über Wasser zu halten" (Dünnhaupt). Von einigen zeitgenössischen Dichterkollegen wurde Hallmann recht kritisch beurteilt: Gryphius sprach hochmütig von ihm, Neumeister lehnte ihn als "hölzern und ungelenk" verächtlich ab und nennt ihn pastörlich "grandiloqus usque ad vicium", doch schon Gottsched stellte ihn als "vierten tragischen Dichter der besonderen Art" neben Gryphius, Opitz und Lohenstein. Karl Wolfskehl urteilt im Katalog zur Sammlung Manheimer so: "Sein sprachlicher Ausdruck übersteigert zwar das Pathos der Zeitgenossen, überspitzt im grausen Bildgewirr die Rede und Gegenrede seiner Personen, peitscht ungelebte, 'verdrängte' Triebhaftigkeit ins trockene Fieber ihres gesuchten Wortschwalls, aber sie hat trotzdem die Kraft, die innere Situation, wenn nicht festzuhalten, so doch zu umschreiben, zu verbildlichen und es ist begreiflich, daß dieser immer im Winkel verbleibende Nicht-Arrivierte getrieben war, sich zu überschreien. H. ist nicht nur literaturgeschichtlich, er ist auch psychologisch ein interessanter Fall." Kollation: Titel, 5 Bl. Vorrede. - I. Die sinn-reiche Liebe oder Der Glückseelige Adonis Und Die Vergnügte Rosibella. 13 Bl., 93 S.; - II. Die Himmlische Liebe Oder Die Beständige Märterin Sophia. 8 Bl., 88 S.; - III.

Die motivgeschichtlich einflussreichen 'Moralia Horatiana' (vgl. z. B. Faber du Faur über die Verdeutschung durch Philipp v. Zesen) nehmen unter den Emblembüchern Veens eine Sonderstellung ein: "Ein leichter, scherzhafter Unterton klingt in dem Buche auf, in dem die Emblematik sich selber zu parodieren scheint" (Monroy S. 54). "Otto van Veen was one of the foremost printers und best engravers of his time, Rubens having been his pupil. In the field of book illustrations he became famous as the creator of the very important and widely imitated book of emblems ." (Faber du Faur).

        A COMPLETE COLLECTION OF ALL THE LAWS OF VIRGINIA NOW IN FORCE. CAREFULLY COPIED FROM THE ASSEMBLY RECORDS. TO WHICH IS ANNEXED AN ALPHABETICAL TABLE

      London, 1684. [bound with:] [MANUSCRIPT TRUE COPY OF THE ACTS OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY PASSED IN 1684 AND 1685]. 1p. table in the hand of Ruffin; 27pp. manuscript giving the text of nine acts passed at session of the Assembly beginning April 1684 (copy signature of Thomas Milner, Clerk of the Assembly); 16pp. manuscript giving the text of eleven acts (copy signature of Major Robert Beverley); 1p. early 18th-century manuscript recording the births of Robert Ruffin's grandchildren (in the hand of his son, Robert Ruffin the younger). Very good. Folio. Expertly bound to style in period gilt calf, spine gilt with raised bands, morocco label. Very good. Provenance: Robert Ruffin (c. 1646-1693, signature on title, dated 1687/8); Robert Ruffin (1681-1720, manuscript birth record); Daniel Call (early signature); John MacNair (signature on title, "New Orleans Oct 23 '52). The second published collection of the statutes of Virginia, covering the acts passed by the General Assembly between 1662 and 1682, including seminal material relating to slavery and Bacon's Rebellion: this copy with contemporary manuscript acts passed at 1684-85 sessions and with original provenance to a Virginia landowner and sheriff from Surry County. The genesis of the printing of these laws is recounted by Hall in THE HISTORY OF THE BOOK IN AMERICA, vol. I: "By the early 1680s the situation was becoming critical once again in Virginia. For reasons unknown, in the years since 1662 the assembly contented itself with scribal [i.e. manuscript] publication. That system yielded an interesting set of artifacts in the wake of Bacon's Rebellion, for the reformist legislation enacted by the assembly that met in June 1676 was subsequently repealed [see pp.197-199 of the present volume], obliging county clerks to eliminate the offending pages from their cache of manuscripts. The initiative to resume the technology of printing came from a first generation planter-merchant and sometime member of the House of Burgesses, John Buckner, who imported a press from Virginia along with an experienced printer William Nuthead, to run it. Nuthead set to work in late 1682 printing the session laws from the assembly that met in 1680, only to encounter the wrath of Governor Culpeper and the council, who in February 1683, having reviewed the first two sheets to pass the press, halted the process on the grounds that Buckner the printer had not been duly licensed. [Nuthead subsequently left Virginia with his press for Maryland]....In the event it was an unauthorized edition that gave Virginians their second statute book....The intermediary was John Purvis, a London-based ship captain and merchant who often came to Virginia; laying hands on a manuscript compilation, Purvis took it back to London to be printed and returned with copies, some of which contained additional blank pages [as the present example]. In April 1684 the Virginia government repudiated the book on the grounds that it was published without License and directed county courts not to use it. Even so...the book seems to have passed into general use, for several of the surviving copies [including the present] bear handwritten notations indicating the repeal or altering of laws. Of more importance, some owners used these books to record new session laws on blank pages bound in with the printed text for this purpose [as in this copy]." Besides the many laws about tobacco, trade, duties, courts, roads, agriculture, etc., two categories of laws found within this volume bear specific mention: those related to Bacon's Rebellion and those concerning slavery. Earlier historians of presented Bacon's Rebellion during 1676 as a fore-shadowing of 1776, with Bacon cast as a proto-Revolutionary who was attempting to overthrow an oppressive government appointed by the crown. Modern scholarship has recast those events as a struggle between the colonists and Native Americans of the region, with a significant sub-text of divisions between small planters and the established major planter elite. The effects of Bacon's Rebellion were far- reaching and are credited with creating changing the nature of the British colonial world in the South. It elevated the status of the wealthy Virginia gentry; numerous laws reference the tumultuous events of 1676. In particular these impose restrictive laws on slaves, many borne out of fear of another uprising. These laws also encouraged the importation of more slaves into the workforce. Copies of the Purvis laws of 1684, the second collected edition of Virginia laws, are very rare, with no other example on the market in the last quarter century. It is generally considered the real beginning of Virginia law, although there was a earlier 1662 collection; writing to William Hening in 1807 regarding his famed collection of the laws of Virginia, Thomas Jefferson noted that his printed laws began with Purvis. Wing records two copies, at the Library of Congress (Thomas Jefferson's copy) and John Carter Brown Library. Additional copies are located at Harvard (lacking the title), University of Virginia (lacks all before p.51), Colonial Williamsburg, College of William & Mary (three copies, one imperfect), University of Michigan Law Library (lacking 10 leaves), Virginia Historical Society, Washington & Lee University (defective), Johns Hopkins, University of Minnesota Law Library (lacking first 10pp.), University of Oxford and the British Library. This example of the COMPLETE COLLECTION with original provenance to Robert Ruffin, of Richneck plantation, who served as the Sheriff of Surry County in 1684, as well as Justice of the Peace from 1680. As intended by Purvis, this copy has contemporary manuscript true copies of the session laws for April 1684 (Hening III:9-27) and October 1685 (Hening III:28-39). Following Purvis' publication of the laws in 1684, the acts of Assembly remained in manuscript until the revisal of 1733. As most of the acts from these sessions had been repealed or revised by that time, no printing of these session laws occurred until Hening in 1823, who published the acts from three manuscript sources (the Northumberland County archives, and two belonging to Thomas Jefferson). The present manuscript conforms closely to the Northumberland County manuscript, with the October 1685 session attested to by Robert Beverley before his removal as clerk. A critically important and very rare edition of the most important early collection of Virginia laws, with much detail on Bacon's Rebellion and the evolution of early colonial Virginia.

        Parayso occidental plantado y cultivado por la liberal benefica mano de los muy catholicos y poderosos reyes de España, nuestros señores, en su magnifico Real Convento de Jesus Maria de Mexico.

      Mexico: Juan Ribera Small 4to. [12], 206 ff., coat of arms.. 1684 Polymath" is the term most often applied to Siguenza y Gongora (1645?-1700), and indeed he was a cosmographer, philosopher, chronicler, poet, biographer, historian, cartographer, and priest. Here he is wearing the hats of a chronicler and a biographer, as he, "an intellectual friend of Sor Juana [Ines de la Cruz] and at the same time a man of science and religiosity, [writes] the history of the convent of Jesus Maria and the biography of some of its notable nuns." His Parayso occidental is "a classic example of baroque[-era] writing on the monastic life of nuns [in Mexico]" (both quotations from Lavrin, p. 205). As such, the volume is important; and even apart from its association with the Spanish world's Tenth Muse," it is => a basic starting place for the study of nuns, the economics of nunneries, and the political life of the same. As is increasingly the case with Mexican imprints of the 17th century, it is => little found in the marketplace. Provenance: 18th-century ownership signature on title-page and first leaf of preliminaries of the Conde del Fresno de la Fuente. Late 19th-century Mexican quarter dark green morocco with mottled green paper sides; binding rubbed and abraded. Pencilling on front fly-leaf and title-page verso; top margins closely cropped occasionally costing top of letters of running heads and foliation. Worming, chiefly in margins but occasionally into the text, not costing words, sometimes repaired; first and last few leaves with old repairs to corners and margins and a bit of text restored in pen and ink. Withal, a good++ copy of important work that is not often on the market.

        De l'état de l'homme apres le peche et de sa prédestination au salut. Où l'on examine les sentiments communs et où l'on explique ce que l'Ecriture Sainte nous en dit. [Text Französisch].

      Chez Henry Desbordes, Amsterdam 1684 - 1684. 7 Blatt, 367 Seiten. Neueres Ganzleder mit Rückenschild, vier falschen Bünden und Blindprägung. (gering kratzspurig, innen am oberen Schnitt teils etwas knapp beschnitten ohne Textverlust, nur sehr wenig gebräunt oder braunfleckig, insgesamt gut erhalten). Le Cène (um 1647 - 1703) war ein französischer Theologe von hugenottischer Herkunft, der in den Niederlanden und in England wirkte. Studiert hatte er in Sedan, Genf und Saumur, 1672 wurde er in Caen protestantisch ordiniert. Er wirkte in Honfleur und Charenton, bis er nach dem Widerruf des Ediktes von Nantes nach Den Haag floh. Die letzten Jahre seines Lebens verbrachte er in England, wo er auch starb. Er war radikaler Rationalist, der den orthodoxen Theologen der reformierten Kirche entgegentrat. Le Cène ging von der Überlegenheit der menschlichen Vernunft aus und las aus der Bibel die Grösse des Menschen heraus, was im Gegensatz zur orthodoxen Lesart stand, die die Verdorbenheit des Menschen betonte. Seine rationalistische Kritik mündete wie bei Sozzini in eine ethische Akzentuierung des Christentums - teils frei zitiert nach Erich Haase, "Einführung in die Literatur des Refuge", 1959. Der Einband ist signiert "Bagguley", das ist George Thomas Bagguley (1860 - nach 1934), tätig in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire. 200 Gramm. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Afteykeninge van de Stadt Philadelphia in de Provinstie van Penn-Sylvania in Americae na de Copie tot London

      Amsterdam: Jacob Claus, 1684. Engraved folding map. Sheet size: 10 x 13 3/4 inches. Provenance: Martin P. Snyder. Rare, Dutch edition of Holme's plan of Philadelphia, and the first printed map to "depict an English colonial North American town" (Burden) "...[A] green country town, which will never be burnt, and always be wholesome." These words, written by William Penn, were part of his directive to his commissioners and Surveyor-General, Captain Thomas Holme, and they were the basis of the plan they laid out for the city to be, Philadelphia, in 1682. Among the earliest examples of city planning, William Penn's square grid of the city was surveyed and drafted in Philadelphia. Intended to reflect and incite orderliness and to ease the dividing of lots, the plan was also projected to thwart the destruction of fires by laying wide streets at right angles and even discourage the spread of contagious disease. (Penn had witnessed the Plague of 1665 and the Great Fire of London in 1666). Holme's engraved plan was first published as the frontispiece to Penn's promotional tract, " A Letter to the Committee of the Free Society of Traders in London" in 1683. Benjamin Furly, a Quaker trader in Rotterdam and owner of 4,000 acres in Pennsylvania, represented Penn's interests on the continent. Doubtless it was through him that a Dutch edition of Penn's letter promoting his colony was promptly printed in Amsterdam. With the reprinting of the letter came a new engraved plan of the Philadelphia city grid prepared from Thomas Holme's "Portraiture". The new plan was by no means an exact copy of the original engraved in London. It contained many improvements, and was a more finished work throughout (Snyder, COI). It is generally assumed that the Dutch version of Holme's plan is more rare due to the smaller circulation of the promotional tract. Referring to Holme's plan, Burden writes, "The printed map is the first to depict an English colonial North American town and is of considerable importance." Set where the Schuykill and Delaware Rivers are roughly parallel, Philadelphia was designed according to rather humane ideals, and not simply to maximize profits. Large blocks and wide streets in an easily navigated grid gave individuals a sense of freedom and community, freedom from the tension induced by overcrowding. There was a large central square intended to serve as the religious and governmental heart of the city, and large accessible parks. The framework of the plan allowed for subdivision and growth. Philadelphia was the fastest growing city in Colonial America in the 18th century. Thomas Holme was an Englishman, who fought in Ireland under Cromwell and settling there, joined the Society of Friends. A long friendship with William Penn led to his being appointed Surveyor- General of Pennsylvania.

        Novi Belgii Novæque Angliæ nec non Pennsylvaniæ et partis Virginiæ tabula multis in locis emendata

      [Amsterdam, 1684. Engraved map. Minor expert repairs. A fine example of the second state of Danckerts' important map. This important map is derived from the Visscher map of about 1655, which is itself drawn from the Janssonius map of 1651. Philip Burden lists three states of this map: the first which was probably published in about 1673 and is easily recognized as it does not include Philadelphia and there is no mention of Pennsylvania in the title. Burden writes of the present second state: "Following the founding of Philadelphia a revised state was produced ... Danckerts updated the map in a significant manner. The Delaware River is completely revised so that it no longer connects with the Hudson River ... Pennsylvania is named, its boundary is marked, and many largely domestic animals are engraved within the region. Recognition of the English hold over New Amsterdam is seen in the addition to the title of the view of [the words] Nieuw Yorck, eetÿs Genaemt above. ... Along with the addition to the view title ... the main [title] ... has had [the words] Pennsylvaniæ, et partis added as the third line." (Burden, II pp.39-40).

        L'Asie/reveue et augmentée

      Paris, 1684. Engraved with period outline colour. Good condition, expertly repaired split at centerfold and parallel tear from the base. Mild toning due to age. Small crease lower left. Pierre Duval was Nicholas Sanson's nephew, and his work was primarily editing and augmenting Sanson's innovative cartography. He and Hubert Jaillot were most important in bringing Sanson's work to the world, both in improved editions and in bringing to print previously unpublished manuscripts. This map of Asia bears the characteristic clarity and more "scientific" air of the 17th-century French map. Though many sites are mis-located, a vast amount of material has been examined and assessed. Most placenames represent geographical entities that currently exist or once existed. The rendition of the lower islands of Japan and the peninsula of Korea are improved over earlier studies. Details of the Great Wall of China are also visible. This map, dated 1684, was issued by Pierre's daughter, "Mlle." Duval, the year after his death. Pastoureau, Duval II E, (9).

        Parayso occidental plantado y cultivado por la liberal benefica mano de los muy catholicos y poderosos reyes de España, nuestros señores, en su magnifico Real Convento de Jesus Maria de Mexico.

      Mexico: Juan Ribera Small 4to. [12], 206 ff., coat of arms.. 1684 Polymath" is the term most often applied to Siguenza y Gongora (1645–1700), and indeed he was a cosmographer, philosopher, chronicler, poet, biographer, historian, cartographer, and priest. Here he is wearing the hats of a chronicler and a biographer, as he, "an intellectual friend of Sor Juana [Ines de la Cruz] and at the same time a man of science and religiosity, [writes] the history of the convent of Jesus Maria and the biography of some of its notable nuns." His Parayso occidental is "a classic example of baroque[-era] writing on the monastic life of nuns [in Mexico]" (both quotations from Lavrin, p. 205). As such, the volume is important; and even apart from its association with the Spanish world's Tenth Muse," it is => a basic starting place for the study of nuns, the economics of nunneries, and the political life of the same. As is increasingly the case with Mexican imprints of the 17th century, it is => little found in the marketplace. Provenance: 18th-century ownership signature on title-page and first leaf of preliminaries of the Conde del Fresno de la Fuente. Late 19th-century Mexican quarter dark green morocco with mottled green paper sides; binding rubbed and abraded. Pencilling on front fly-leaf and title-page verso; top margins closely cropped occasionally costing top of letters of running heads and foliation. Worming, chiefly in margins but occasionally into the text, not costing words, sometimes repaired; first and last few leaves with old repairs to corners and margins and a bit of text restored in pen and ink. Withal, a good++ copy of important work that is not often on the market.

        Nouvelles de la République des Lettres.

      - Amsterdam, Henry Desbordes, Henry Desbordes & Daniel Pain et Pierre Mortier, 1684-1710. Ensemble de 50 volumes in-12, plein vélin rigide de l’époque (reliures uniformes). Exceptionnel ensemble complet des années 1685 à 1710 à l'exception des mois août à décembre 1684 et des années 1716 à 1718. Les livraisons ont été interrompues d'avril 1689 à janvier 1699. Comprend de nombreuses d'illustrations et planches hors-texte dont certaines dépliantes. Bien qu'entièrement rédigées en français, les ‘Nouvelles de la république des lettres’ étaient publiées chaque mois à Amsterdam pour contourner la censure. L'éditeur fut Henry Desbordes, installé Kalver Straat de 1684 à 1710. Le périodique devint rapidement le centre de la vie intellectuelle européenne, auquel contribuèrent l’élite intellectuelle de l'époque, « de Leibniz à Locke, de Nicole à Bossuet, d'Abbadie à R. Simon et au père Hardouin, de La Hire à Tournefort, de Bochart à Vossius, de G. Leti à Varillas, de Boileau à La Bruyère » (Sgard). "Le corpus des articles qui visent un public étendu au-delà du cercle des savants, fournit une information très riche sur la production livresque en Europe, l’intensité des questions religieuses qui atteint son paroxysme avec la révocation de l’Édit de Nantes, le poids énorme des controverses doctrinales qui traversent toutes les disciplines. Bayle écrit en médiateur culturel, soucieux d’impartialité et tire la leçon de la méthode de Descartes pour débusquer l’erreur" (R. Monnier, H. BOST, ‘Pierre Bayle historien, critique et moraliste’, A.H.R.F., 349|2007, 203-205. (Bourgeois André, n°1952. Hatin, 33. Sgard, 'Dict. des Journaux', n°1016).

        Apollonius Cattus, oder Kern der gantzen Geometriae in drey Theil. [Bericht zu M. Jobsten Burgi seligen Geometrischen Triangular Instruments]

      1684 - 3 parties en 1 volume in-4, Marburg, Joh. Heinrich Stock [pour Johann Ingebrand à Cassel], 1684, 1684, , 3 parties en 1 volume in-4, frontispice sur cuivre, [14]-102-61-[8]-22 pages, 52 planches, basane granitée ancienne, dos orné à la grotesque, roulette sur les coupes, Première mise en recueil des importants travaux de mathématiques et d'instrumentation topographique de Benjamin Bramer, élève et beau-frère de Jost Bürgi, comprenant trois parties parues séparément, à l'origine, en en 1634, 1647 et 1648. La troisième partie décrit le "Geometrische Triangular Instrument" de Bürgi, instrument conçu dans les années 1590 et qui exploitait de manière novatrice la technique de la triangulation. L'illustration de l'ouvrage comprend le retirage du beau portrait-frontispice allégorique de Bürgi, entouré des instruments scientifiques de sa conception, ainsi que plusieurs bois dans le texte et le retirage des planches sur cuivre, repliées pour la plupart ; les 21 planches qui ornent la troisième partie, sont courtes de marges. Texte allemand, en lettres gothiques. DSB II, 419. Poggendorff I, 274. Architecte allemand, Benjamin Bramer était le beau-frère et l'élève du célèbre constructeur d'instruments scientifiques Jost Bürgi (1552-1632), pionnier dans l'élaboration d'instruments nouveaux d'arpentage, d'astronomie et de mesure du temps : il accompagna son maître à Prague en 1603 et fut nommé en 1612 architecte de la ville de Marburg par le Landgrave de Hesse Moritz. Ce recueil est particulièrement important pour sa description de l'instrument de Bürgi, ainsi conçu : "Comme [les combinaisons de règles graduées] étaient de conception assez simples, [elles] ont été exécutées avec de nombreuses variantes. Pour faire pressentir leur filiation, rappelons que Copernic utilisait déjà un assemblage de trois règles graduées, deux d'entre elles étant articulées aux extrémités de la troisième, placée verticalement ; il était désigné sous le nom de triquetrum ou instrument des trois règles. On en retrouve un semblable dans Oronce Finé [.]. Le même principe a été repris vers la fin du XVIe siècle, et probablement de façon indépendante, par Danfrie et par Jost Bürgi. Il existe très peu de différence entre le trigomètre de Danfrie et l'instrument triangulaire de Bürgi. Le premier est muni de rapporteurs à chacune de ses articulations tandis que le second n'en est pas pourvu ; l'instrument de Burgi porte une boussole sur l'une de ses branches. Sur les deux instruments, l'une des règles latérales se déplace par une coulisse sur la règle de base : les trois règles sont divisées en partie égales et les opérations de mesure sont identiques. Trigomètre et instrument triangulaire se montent sur un trépied à rotule, ce qui permet le relevé d'angles verticaux et horizontaux" (Daumas, les instruments scientifiques aux XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles, pages 31-32). Reliure habilement restaurée. Impression sur papier allemand ; ce dernier présente les altérations propres à sa qualité d'origine, soit d'importantes brunissures. Petites taches d'encre anciennes sur une page. Planches de la troisième partie courtes de marge. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Late 19th century red crushed morocco by Bedford, richly gilt spine, three-line gilt border on sides enclosing central gilt panel with floriate corner-pieces, all edges gilt, richly gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers; housed in a custom made fleece-lined red cloth slipcase. The first-named with 4 engraved portraits, 4 engraved plates (1 double-page, 1 folding), engraved double-page map of Panama, allegorical head-piece, and a woodcut; the second with 2 engraved folding maps (one large), 13 full-page engraved maps and charts which are included in the pagination, a full-page engraved city-plan and 42 woodcuts of coastal profiles in the text. Embossed library stamp of Donald Duncan MacDermid on a preliminary binder's blank. Light bump to back bottom corner, map of South America skilfully repaired (short closed-tear in the margin), last three leaves skilfully remargined at the bottom edge and gutter. First English edition of Exquemelin; first edition of Ringrose. Exquemlin first appeared in Dutch in 1678, the present edition being translated from Alonso de Buena Maison's Spanish edition of 1681. The two works together form the primary contemporary source in English for the history of the English and French Buccaneers, or more politely 'privateers,' who harassed Spanish shipping and colonies in the Caribbean during the seventeenth century, as Sabin averred; "No book in any language was ever the source of so many imitations, and the source of so many fictions as this." A Huguenot native to Honfleur, Exquemelin left France in 1666 as an indentured servant bound for the Antilles. On Tortuga, he was sold to a nefarious government officer, and later resold to a doctor who taught him some of the skills of a barber-surgeon, offered Exquemelin his freedom for a price, and gave him a few surgical tools. By the end of the 1660's, Exquemelin became a flibustier, or privateer. He probably served with Jean-David Nau l'Olonnais, and participated in the raid of Maracaibo in 1669. He later took part in Henry Morgan's sack of Panama in 1670-71. Soon thereafter, Exquemelin abandoned piracy, returned to Europe, and studied medicine in Amsterdam, where he completed this account. He later returned to America several times as a ship's surgeon aboard Dutch and Spanish vessels. He writes in considerable detail about raids upon various settlements throughout the West Indies, fights with Indians, encounters with other pirates, and acts of torture committed by the marauding bands upon the region's inhabitants. Although some of his dates are questionable, Exquemelin's account is considered among the most reliable of the period. The second volume, containing Basil Ringrose's narrative of Bartholomew Sharp's depredations on the Pacific coast, is similarly prized for its accuracy; "He was…one of five buccaneers, including William Dampier and Lionel Wafer, who kept a journal of the expedition. His narrative is by far the most detailed account of the voyage" (ODNB). Ringrose is also renowned for his capture and copying of the Rosario's derrotero or waggoner, which contained secret pilotage instructions for the whole of the Pacific coast of America. It is extremely unusual to find the two volumes together in first editions; "It is more usual to find Volume I of the first edition alone; or Volume I of the second edition combined with Volume II of the first edition" (Church). A highly desirable volume, particularly so in this lovely binding by one of the foremost London bookbinders of the period.

      Desbordes - Pain - Mortier 1684-1718, Amsterdam - Legature coeve in piena pelle con nervi e ricchi fregi oro al ds. Carte di guardia e tagli marmorizzati in coloritura omogenea. Alcuni volumi recano al piatto anteriore la scritta in oro M. De Prangins . Ottime condizioni generali, salvo poche cuffie danneggiate. Interni freschi (carte ingiallite in tre voll.) e ben conservati (solo il Tomo I del 1704 ha uno strappo al frontespizio). Tutto il pubblicato (per lo più in prima o seconda edizione): insieme ai volumi curati da Bayle (marzo 1684-febbraio 1687), le continuazioni - intervallate da anni in cui la pubblicazione della rivista venne sospesa - di Daniel de Larroque e Jean Le Clerc (marzo-agosto 1687), Jean Barrin (settembre 1687-aprile 1689), Jacques Bernard (gennaio 1699-dicembre 1710, gennaio 1716-aprile 1718), Jean Le Clerc (maggio-giugno 1718). Si tratta del primo periodico che si prefisse l obiettivo di analizzare e segnalare al Pubblico (in precedenza lo scambio di informazioni e di valutazioni si svolgeva nella stretta cerchia degli intellettuali) le edizioni contemporanee pubblicate in Europa (Francia e Olanda soprattutto, ma anche Inghilterra, Svezia, Germania, Italia, ecc.) riguardanti gli argomenti più interessanti nel mondo pre-illuministico come la filosofia cartesiana, le religioni (con molteplici note sulla religione cattolica e protestante, ma anche con segnalazioni di studi sulla chiesa anglicana, sulla storia e gli usi degli ebrei, ecc.), i viaggi, le invenzioni ed i progressi delle scienze fisiche e matematiche e della medicina, e - sia pure in minor misura - le opere storiche e letterarie. Opera completa (descrizione conforme in B.N.F.) molto rara, quasi introvabile nel mercato antiquario, di questo eccezionale periodico (pubblicato in lingua francese in Olanda per sfuggire alla censura presente in Francia) che - come testimoniano le ripetute edizioni - ebbe ungrande successo in ambito europeo. 12mo (cm. 13,8), 66 Voll., ciascuno di circa 400 pp. con disegni n.t. e tavv. f.t.

        MID-ATLANTIC STATES & NEW ENGLAND: Novi Belgii Novaeque Angliae Nec Non partis Virginiae Tabula multis in locis emendata.

      - A fine example of Nicholas Visscher’s decorative archetype map of the ‘New Netherlands’, embracing the Mid-Atlantic region and New England. This sumptuous work of Dutch Baroque cartography depicts America’s Atlantic Seaboard from Virginia up to Maine. While this example is updated to 1684, the map evokes the era of ‘Nieuw Nederland’ the colony operated in the Mid-Atlantic region by the Dutch West India Company (the WIC) from 1613 to 1664, centred on ‘Nieuw Amsterdam’ (New York City). The eminent historian Isaac Newton Phelps Stokes described Visscher’s map as giving "the best and most complete representation that we have of New Netherland during the Dutch period; it may correctly be described as a scientific map, in the making of which advantage was taken of all the material available". (Stokes, Iconography, vol. II, p. 118) The first edition of the map was made in 1655, when the Dutch held dominance over the Mid-Atlantic region, and were in the process of expelling the Swedes, who had established a small colony near the mouth of the Delaware River. In 1664, the English, who had already established colonies in Chesapeake Bay and New England, which geographically ‘sandwiched’ the New Netherlands, conquered New Amsterdam and with it all of Dutch North America. While the Dutch briefly regained control of New York in 1673, they soon left for good, ensuring that the New Netherlands would only live on in the realm of nostalgia. Curiously, in spite of the Dutch bias of the map, an example of the first edition of 1655 was entered as evidence in the long running boundary dispute between the English colonies of Lord Baltimore’s Maryland and William Penn’s Pennsylvania. The map is dominated by Dutch nomenclature, as much of the Mid-Atlantic is named ‘Nova Belgica sive Nieuw Nederlandt’. New York Harbor is designated as the ‘Groote Rivier’ (the Great Rivier), the Hudson River is the ‘Noort Rivier’, the Delware River is the ‘Zuydt Rivier’, while the Catskills as the ‘t’ Landt van Kats Kill’, Long Island is ‘t’ Lange Eylandt’, Cape Cod is labeled ‘Nieuw Hollandt’, Martha’s Vineyard is ‘Texel’ or ‘Elizabets Eylandt’ and Nantucket is ‘Vlielant’ (the latter two places being names after parts of the Frisian Island chain in the Netherlands). However, as the preset edition of map was issued after the fall of the Dutch hegemony, various English names have crept in, including’ ‘Nieuw Jorck’ (New York), ‘Nieu Iarsey’ (New Jersey) ‘Pensylvania’, ‘Niew Englandt’ (New England) and Virginia. Numerous Native American villages and place names are labeled, including ‘Conittecock’, the origin of the name Connecticut. The map features many early Dutch and Swedish settlements, including ‘Nieuw Amsterdam’ (New York City, founded 1624), ‘t’ Fort Orangie’ (Albany, New York, founded 1617), ‘Beukelen’ (Brooklyn), ‘t’ Fort de Goede hoop’ (Harford, Connecticut, founded 1623); ‘t Fort Christina’ (the main Swedish settlement in America from 1638 to 1655, on the site of present day Wilmington, Delaware), ‘Fort Nassau’ (Gloucester City, New Jersey, across the Delaware River from Philadelphia). Several English settlements rare also depicted, including ‘James Towne’ (Viginia, founded in 1607), ‘Neu Pleymout’ (Plymouth, Massachusetts, founded in 1620) ‘Stamfort’ and ‘Milfort’ (Stamford and Milford, Connecticut). Most importantly, the present edition of the map labels Philadelphia, a very early appearance for the ‘City of Brotherly Love’, which was only founded by William Penn the year before this map was printed. One of the most magnificent features of the map is the fine profile view of New Amsterdam that appears in the lower right, being amongst the earliest obtainable views of New York City. Stokes asserted that the view is based on a sketch made sometime between 1651 and 1653, prior to the construction of the wall which ran among the northern perimeter of New Amsterdam, today commemorated by New York’s Wall Street. The map is further adorned with a bird’s eye view of t

        DESCRIPTION DE LA LOUISIANE, NOUVELLEMENT DECOUVERTE AU SUD OUEST DE LA NOUVELLE FRANCE

      Paris, 1684. 12mo. Bound to style in gilt calf, spine elaborately gilt. Very good. Lacks the map. A reissue of the first edition, published the previous year, with the original sheets but a new titlepage, of the first book by the famous Recollet missionary and explorer, Father Louis Hennepin, and a foundation work of Canadiana and Americana, particularly for the Great Lakes region. Unlike some of Hennepin's later works, the truthfulness of his narrative herein is accepted by historians. "In 1684 sheets of this 1683 edition were slightly altered in two issues: the first merely adding a numeral I to the date; the second substituting a new titlepage with 1684 date and Auroy's imprint" - Howes. This copy is the latter, with the new titlepage. Hennepin accompanied the great French explorer, the Sieur de la Salle, on his 1678-79 expedition from Fort Frontenac to Niagara, then on to the Illinois country where Hennepin was directed to explore further on his own. He ultimately ascended the Mississippi River as far as the Falls of St. Anthony, near where he was captured by the Sioux and held for some time before being released. This book is the narrative of all these adventures and is notable for its many "firsts": the first use of the name "Louisiana," the first good account of the Illinois country and upper Mississippi, the first detailed account of the Sioux, and the first navigation of the Great Lakes. It also includes an account of Hennepin's captivity among the Sioux. Few works in the history of American exploration are of greater importance. An important and foundational work.

        Zwey nachdänkliche Traum-Gesichte, von dess Türcken Untergang. Zweifels ohn von göttlicher Direction. Herauss gelassen von mehrmals zugetroffen erfahrnem Designante Somniatore.

      [Ulm, Matthäus Wagner, 1684]. - 4to. (2), "31" (= 29), (1) pp. With engraved frontispiece (an allegory of the 1683 Ottoman defeat) and headpieces. Side-stitched in modern wrappers, green edges. Rare pamphlet describing two dreams supposedly predicting the fall of the Ottoman Empire. It was written by the German composer and novelist Daniel Speer (1636-1707) under the pseudonym "Designante Somniatore" and opens with some remarks on prophetic dreams with reference to the Old Testament. Speer's pamphlet, written immediately after the 1683 Battle of Vienna, expresses a deep-seated fear of the Ottoman Empire, which, thrusting into the heart of Europe, seemed a serious threat to Christianity. With manuscript annotation on the back of the frontispiece by "Joannes Jacobus Hausmohr", 1685, and contemporary ownership of the Salzburg Theological Seminary ("Ex libris Seminarij Salisb.") on title page. In good condition. VD 17, 3:310364C. Not in Atabey or Blackmer. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
