        Autograph letter signed, to the Duchess of Aveiro

      Agaña (Mariana Islands), 1684. Folio, 4 pp., manuscript in ink on paper, about 1500 words, written in a neat hand; in fine condition preserved in a bookform case by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. A spanish martyr on colonising the southern continent. An exceptionally interesting manuscript, in which Father Solorzano, a Jesuit missionary in the Mariana Islands, gives news of the work accomplished by the Mariana Islands Mission, and discusses plans for the missionaries to explore and evangelise the southern continent. The plan is clearly reminiscent of Quiros' memorials about seventy years earlier.In the 1660s Spanish Jesuit missionaries set out to colonise the Mariana Islands, which until then had been called the Ladrones - named thus by Magellan for the thievery of the native inhabitants. Father Solorzano was one of the earliest casualties in what became a vicious struggle between the Spanish settlers and the native peoples of the islands: three months after the date of this letter he was killed in a skirmish and became one of the first martyrs.'Meanwhile, Duchess Maria d'Aveiro, who had already more or less adopted the mission, saw to it that the necessary flow of ducats was continued from Madrid to the Marianas. She was repaid with abundant letters full of detailed information on the Church's progress in those regions. Her archives, which must have been a historian's goldmine, contained many manuscripts dealing with ecclesiastical and colonial affairs. In 1923, however, they were sold to Maggs Brothers and subsequently dispersed...' (Francis X. Hezel).This is one of that small series of letters written by Solorzano to the mission's patron the Duchess of Aveiro, sold by Maggs Brothers in their famous catalogue Australia and the South Seas of 1927. This specific letter was item 52 in the catalogue, which summarised the manuscript thus:'Father Solorzano tells how supplies for the Mariana Islands had been delayed by storms, but that the people of Manila had sent help to them under the command of Don Damian de Esplaña. The garrison had been away in the island of Rota, preparing the conquest of the island of Zaypan, and on its return voyage had nearly been lost in a great storm together with the governor and various friendly Indians, in all some three hundred persons.' "Added to this anxiety was another... which was that the bilander which was moored to the harbour with nine cables, broke away during the gale, and was finally smashed to pieces on the reefs off the shore, thereby destroying our hope of exploring the southern islands which lead to the unknown Austral lands and are the goal of our endeavours".'The writer goes on to tell how they had tried to obtain other boats for the purpose of exploring the islands in the South, and that the Governor having died Esplaña had been nominated in his stead...'We have been unable to trace whether this proposed expedition ever set sail'. (Maggs, catalogue 491, item 52, £52 10s).As various publications of the period attest, the Spanish and especially the colonists in Mexico continued to see the proposals of Quiros for the evangelisation and annexation of the southern land as a real possibility. In 1669 for example, Father Luis de San Vitores' Memorial, printed in Mexico, renewed Quiros' call (and quoted from him extensively) to lobby for the consolidation of a mission in the Mariana Islands as a stepping-stone to the colonization and conversion of the "Southern or Austral Islands"

        Nova methodus pro maximis et minimis, itemque tangentibus, quae nec fractas nec irrationales quantitates moratur et singulare pro illis calculi genus (in: Acta Eruditorum, year 1684)

      Leipzig, Christopher Gunther for J. Grossium, and Christoph Breitkopf for J. Gleiditsch, 1684. Small 4to. [19,7 x 15,3 cm]. pp. 467-473 and one plate (Tab. XII) for the article. Contemporary half vellum over boards with title written in contemporary hand on the spine.l The 1684 volume with Leibniz's famous article on differential calculus in an exceedingly rare, unrecorded state. Dibner: "First printing of this epochal work. (...) Fifteen years after Newton's first work in fluxions and nine after his own independent discovery, Leibnitz published the above, his first announcement of the differential calculus". It is known that two distinct issues exist, and this is an unrecorded third, but certainly not latest. In the Norman copy, page 467 is in an uncorrected setting (known now as the first state), with quite a few printing errors in the mathematical formula. In the copy described in Dibner's "Heralds of Science" (previously recognized as a first issue), the page is entirely reset, with corrections, but is obviously now recorded as the second 'state' or 'issue'. Our copy is similar to the Norman copy, with page 467 in an uncorrected state. However, in our copy the plate next to page 467 differs from both Norman and Dibner: the letters "M. Oct" are printed at the top of the sheet underneath the plate number. What we have here thus, is yet another issue of the work and it is still unclear which one is the true first. It is, however, not unthinkable that this is the true first issue, since there would be little reason to add "M. Oct" to the plate if it was issued at a later date. We offer the entire third volume of the Acta Eruditorum, year 1684, which collates as follows, [10], 590, [8] pp. with 14 engraved plates and tables, some folding. A very good copy in unusually crisp and clean condition, and in an attractive original binding. Norman 1326; Dibner, Heralds of science 109; Ravier, Biblio. de Leibnitz 84-96, 101-104 and 195-214; PMM, 160.

Volume di particolare interesse in quanto completo del ritratto dell'Autore, sovente mancante. Francesco Redi (Arezzo, 1626 ? 1697), naturalista, medico e letterato, compì gli studi a Firenze e a Pisa, laureandosi in Filosofia e Medicina, per poi entrare al servizio dei Medici. Fu arciconsolo della Crusca dal 1678 al 1690, partecipando ai lavori della terza edizione del "Vocabolario" e fu tra i fondatori dell'"Accademia del Cimento". Nominato archiatra del Granduca Ferdinando II, lasciò vari importanti studi tanto letterarari quanto scientifici, e morì a Pisa nel 1697. "I suoi studi, fra i quali quelli intorno alla generazione spontanea e al veleno delle vipere, rivestono particolare importanza nella storia della scienza moderna, per la loro opera di demolizione di alcune teorie di stampo aristotelico a favore di un'attività sperimentale e per la loro applicazione in campo medico di una pratica terapeutica di impostazione ippocratica, costruita su regole di prevenzione e sull'uso di rimedi esclusivamente naturali e su precetti di vita equilibrata. Pubblicò un gran numero di ricerche naturalistiche, che destarono grande interesse in tutta Europa. Nel lavoro scientifico di Redi più ancora dei risultati ottenuti è essenziale il metodo usato, che gli assicura un posto di grande rilievo nella storia del metodo sperimentale" (da wikipedia). Nel presente testo riporta le esperienze personali in campo anatomico, analizzando ben 108 diversi tipi di parassiti.

        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.

      Paris. 1684.. [12],312,107pp. 12mo. Bound to style in full calf, gilt, 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.

        Amerique Septemtrionale [sic] . [upper left sheet of:] Carte Universelle du Monde vulgairement dite la Mappemonde.

      M.elle Du Val, Fille de l'Auteur, Paris 1684 - Engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline. Rare separate issue of the North American sheet from Du Val's 1679 world map. According to Shirley, each of the four sheets which comprise this very rare wall map were published separately. "Each sheet, as issued, originally contained its own title and key which could be trimmed off when the four sheets were joined to form a single large map" (Shirley). The present copy of the North American sheet includes such a title, present in the area below the equator which is marked by a line of gradients indicating where the map would have been trimmed had it been assembled with other sheets as a wall map. The depiction of America is quite interesting. The map is largely based on previous mappings by Sanson and includes the trade routes across the Pacific. California is depicted as an island and a speculative aspect also dominates the portrayal of the rest of the American Southwest, such as the labelling of the mythical land of "Quivira" on the mainland, and the depiction of the Rio Grande as having its source in the fictitious "Lac de Conibas". Wagner notes the map for its cartography of the northwest coast, describing it as a "Sanson map with the Terre de Iesso or Eso between the Destroit d'Anian next to California and the Destroit de Vriez" (Wagner). The depiction of the American Northeast is somewhat more progressive than that shown by Sanson: New York (i.e. Nouvelle Holande), Boston, Virginia and Maryland are each specifically named. Most of the American Southeast is shown as a part of the great Spanish territory of "Floride," which extends north into the Carolinas. Interestingly, this map seems to have included a rhetorical device intended to promote the idea of a Northwest Passage, with the route of an anonymous voyage through the Northwest Passage shown, dated 1665 and terminating in Button's Bay. At roughly the same time as the present map (i.e. the world map from which this comprises the upper left corner), Du Val also issued a four sheet map of North and South America ("L'Amerique Suivant les derniers Relations avec les Routes que l'on tient pour Les Indes Occidentales"). Cartographically, the mappings are quite similar. Two issues of the world map were produced, this being from the second dated 1684. Shirley, Mapping the World 489; Wagner Cartography of the Northwest Coast 424. Not in Burden, The Mapping of North America or Kershaw, Early Printed Maps of Canada.

As is our custom the grade may be thought of as a compromise between the newish hardcovers and the understandably aged text, hopefully the listed attributes will answer for specifics.This is a large format pamphlet placed in hardcovers, and has no frontispiece, the original text commences with the title page followed by the 1st page of text, collation code 'B'. Text concludes at page 67, final collatition on page 65 code 'S'. It is preceded and followed by tan replacement endsheets. The text, with predictable waviness and minor foxing is mildly age darkened at what look to be its natural, uncut (post assembly) edges. Title page has postage stamp size section missing at lower corner, text has the odd mild stain and corrected dog ear, all fairly mild. Title page also has edge flecking/edge darkening, and more mildly so, the sheet following.There is much variation in the finished size of the leaves (perhaps 1/16th inch) and surely as made.

        Dialogues de la santé. Nouvelle éd., rev. & corr.

      Desbordes, Amsterdam, Desbordes 1684 - Livre ancien 5, 206 pp. Un des livres de médecine les plus invraisemblables du XVIIe s. L'auteur a eu l'idée saugrenue d'imaginer un ouvrage en 12 dialogues, mettant en scène les organes humains, mais aussi des concepts (la prévention, le sommeil, la santé), ainsi qu'un médecin , conversant avec un malade, un sauvage, ou la nature. " On suppose que ce dialogue commence sur la fin d'un grand repas ". Le coeur : Non, je ne puis souffrir votre intempérance ni vos excès (.) L'estomac : Hélas, je croyois que ce fut à moy de me plaindre, car dans ces festins, je suis si peu en possession de faire mes volontez, qu'on n'écoute ni mes remontrances ni mes exclamations. Après un vif échange entre la prévention et les boyaux, le médecin discute avec le malade, ne trouvant point la Nature, il finit par la découvrir parmi les sauvages. Ce livre très étrange est d'une rareté insigne. C'est la raison pour laquelle, malgré le triste état de cet exemplaire nous avons choisi de le faire figurer dans ce catalogue. Condition : Petit in-12. en veau d'époque usagé, manque la coiffe de tête, mors fendu, sans le titre et le 1er feuillet de préface. -. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      London: Printed by the Assigns of J. Bill, T. Newcombe and Hen. Hills, 1684, 1683; Printed for the Company of Stationers, 1683. n. Hardcover. 127 x 64 mm (5 x 2 1/2"). Two leaves (Eee3 and 4) bound in reverse order. Two separately published works bound in one volume. VERY APPEALING CONTEMPORARY RED MOROCCO, ELABORATELY GILT AND PAINTED, covers with an ornate design of drawer handle tools and flowers, most of these painted black or gray, raised bands, spine densely gilt in compartments, each with semi-circle at head and tail and wedge tool at side, both shapes filled with floral tools, the top spine end raised higher than the board edges in a stylized à la grecque design, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. In a velvet-lined modern maroon clamshell box with black morocco label. Engraved title page with architectural frame. Front pastedown with engraved bookplate of Gaspard Ernest Stroehlin showing Calvin preaching, with motto "Mente Libera" ("Free Mind"); early (binder's?) pin inserted behind the upper headband. Herbert 794; Wing B-2337; Wing B-2551B. Extremities a bit rubbed, spine a little crackled and with a tiny split at bottom, paint faded in several spots, gilt on front cover just slightly dulled, but the binding still extremely pleasing, with no significant wear. Title page with minor soil and corner crease, head margin trimmed a little close (no loss), otherwise fine internally, the text especially smooth, fresh, and clean. This is an uncommonly seen edition of English Scripture in a charming diminutive contemporary binding, adorned with typical Restoration floral and drawer handle tools and upgraded here to a more decorative altitude by the application of paint. Although some of that paint has been rubbed off from being in pious hands and pockets, the volume seems to have no restorations and is generally in remarkably good condition. A binding on a book printed in 1682 that is similar to ours and that perhaps has the same drawer handle and tulip tools appears as item #90 in Maggs Catalogue 1075, where it is attributed to the well-known "Devotional Binder," active from about 1670-85. The present Bible is one of several 24mo editions issued by the publisher in 1684, with Herbert classifying ours as the third variant. Former owner Ernest Stroehlin (1844-1907) was a Swiss minister and professor of church history at the University of Geneva.

        Dissertatio lithologica variis observationibus et figuris illustrata.

      . Londoni, Typis Joannis Bringhurst, 1684, 12°, (16), 137 pp., 1 p. Errata, 1 p., 6 gfefalt. Kupfertaf., Ledereinband d.Zt.; trotz des erneuerten Rücken ein feines und frisches Exemplar.. Rare first Edition of this important book on lithotomy! - Groenvelt, Joannes (bap. 1648, d. 1715/16), physician and surgeon, was baptized on 14 May 1648 in the Reformed church of Deventer in the Dutch province of Overijssel; he was the only surviving son of Frans Groenevelt and Goedekin ter Klocken. In mid-January 1666 he matriculated into the well-regarded local 'Illustre School'; in September 1667 he matriculated in medicine at the University of Leiden. Apparently because of the epidemic that occurred in Leiden at the end of the summer of 1669, which forced the university to close for a time, Groenevelt migrated to Utrecht to complete his medical studies, defending his thesis, 'De calculo vesicae', and taking his degree, on 18 March 1670. Perhaps after a visit to France, Groenevelt moved to Amsterdam, where he joined the Collegium Medicum and married Cristina de Ruijter (c.1650-1713) on 4 March 1672. He also entered into a joint practice with the Amsterdam city surgeon Henricus Velthuys, who had an especially good reputation for surgically removing bladder stones. When Velthuys died in May 1674 he left his instruments to Groenevelt, and urged him to take up surgical practice himself. - Groenevelt may have served as physician to the newly liberated Dutch garrison at Grave in October 1674. Then, late in the year, or early in 1675, he and his wife arrived in London. On 5 May 1675 their first child, Franciscus, was baptized at the Dutch church at Austin Friars, and on 24 June Groenevelt obtained his papers of denization from the English crown. Another son, Elias, was baptized at Austin Friars on 4 November 1677, and a daughter,Christina, on 2 April 1679. The family resided in Throgmorton Street, just around the corner from the church. Groenevelt published a version of his medical thesis as Lithologia: a Treatise of the Stone and Gravel (1677). In the spring of 1682 he helped the Royal Society to publish an important work by one of his old friends from Deventer, Willem ten Rhijne. He joined the Royal College of Physicians, London, on 2 April 1683 as a licentiate, and in 1684 published his Dissertatio lithologica, which became well regarded in England and on the continent, with a second edition in 1687. In 1686 he signed a contract with John Browne, surgeon to St Thomas's Hospital, London, to train him in removing bladder stones using his methods (although Browne brought suit in 1687 for breach of contract, with Groenevelt counter-suing). On 12 August 1687 Groenevelt joined with four other licentiates of the college in the 'repository', a group practice in King's Street, where they took turns seeing patients and selling medications from a large stock they collected and compounded on site; each also took it in turn to visit the sick in their homes for one week. To bring in custom, the group published The Oracle for the Sick (1687), which contained a series of medical questions mimicking the questions that a doctor would ask on seeing a patient, which could be filled out and sent to the repository through the penny post system; remedies and instructions on use would be sent in return. The members of the Repository practice drew censures from the Royal College of Physicians, but they seem to have prospered. Groenevelt also published Arthritology, or, A Discourse of the Gout (1691), in which he claimed to have found a new and better way of treating gout and the many other diseases caused by faults in the juices of the blood. - It may have been hearing of Groenevelt's new remedy that caused Suzanna Withall to seek his assistance in the summer of 1693; but on 27 July 1694 she and supporting witnesses complained to the censors of the Royal College of Physicians that his pills had left her an invalid. The censors found him guilty of malpractice for giving cantharides internally, but one of the censors, Edward Tyson, prevented them from exacting a penalty. Further internal troubles in the college caused delays, but in April 1697 the censors fined Groenevelt 20 and sent him to Newgate prison. Groenevelt obtained release on habeas corpus, and permanent freedom because of the general pardon of William III after the death of Queen Mary. Supported by the London apothecaries and surgeons, he fought the censors by charging them in court with not having taken the necessary oaths, sued them for false imprisonment, and engaged in a publicity battle with them via pamphlets and the newspapers. The censors in turn helped Mrs Withall bring a civil suit against Groenevelt for 2000, although the jury found him not guilty at the conclusion of a six-hour trial on 7 December 1697. Groenevelt then sought further vindication by publishing De tuto cantharidum in medicina usu interno (1698). The case he had lodged against the censors became an issue in the House of Lords in the spring of 1698; his suit for false imprisonment failed in king's bench in June 1700, but created important precedent by placing courts such as the college's under the supervision of the courts of common law. Even though he was found not guilty, Groenevelt's practice declined, and in 1703 he also became deeply embroiled on the losing side of a bitter dispute within the church of Austin Friars. By 1710 he was rumoured to be going blind and to have shaking hands; he could no longer pay his dues to the college, and in December he became an object of its charity. His children had all died, and his wife apparently returned to Amsterdam, where she was buried in December 1713. Groenevelt tried to restore his reputation with A Compleat Treatise of the Stone and Gravel (1710), and wrote a medical textbook, Fundamenta medicinae scriptoribus in 1714, apparently for money. In 1714 he moved to St John's Priory, where he died, being buried outside the church of St James's, Clerkenwell on 15 January 1716.

        L'Asie/reveue et augmentée

      Paris 1684 - 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). 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.
