They that know themselves cannot be proud.” John Flavel John Flavel was a 17th-century Presbyterian and Puritan author. This book, ‘A Treatise of the Soul of Man’ is a protestant devotional written to identify the weakness and shortcomings of the human soul, but also to be a study in offering hope through God. Flavel himself says of the soul: “The study and knowledge of the soul was always reckoned a rich and necessary improvement of time. No knowledge is better than that whereby we know our selves: leave other matters therefore, and search thy self.” Flavel also writes about the differences between angels and humans, declaring that “an Angel is a perfect soul, and an Human is an imperfect Angel.” Item number: #1133 Price: $950 FLAVEL, John Pneumatologia, a treatise of the soul of man : wherein the divine original, excellent and immortal nature of the soul are opened, its love and inclination to the body, with the necessity of its separation from it, considered and improved, the existence, operations, and states of separated souls, both in Heaven and Hell, immediately after death, asserted, discussed, and variously applyed, divers knotty and difficult questions about departed souls, both philosophical, and theological, stated and determined, the invaluable preciousness of humane souls, and the various artifices of Satan (their professed enemy) to destroy them, discovered, and the great duty and interest of all men, seasonable and heartily to comply with the most great and gracious design of the Father, Son, and Spirit, for the salvation of their souls, argued and pressed London : Printed for Francis Tyton ., 1685.

        A New Map of New England. New York. New Iersey. Pensilvania. Maryland. and Virginia.

      By Philip Lea at the Atlas and Hercules in Cheap-Side, c1685., London, - The first plan of New York harbour Third state. Double-page engraved map (455 by 550mm to the neatline, full margins showing the plate mark), with early hand-colour in outline (laid down on linen, one or two pale stains). "In May 1685 John Thornton, Robert Morden and Philip Lea advertised for sale a multi-sheet map entitled 'A New Map of the English Empire in the Continent of America'. Although earlier multi-sheet maps of the Americas existed, namely the Augustine Herrman 1673[74], none survive that were of the entire English colonies in North America" (Burden). The only known example of their advertised map is held in the Bibliothéque Nationale, Paris. The multi-sheet map was designed in such a manner that allowed for some of the sheets to be issued separately, as in the present example: "This can be shown by the fact that the title runs in a narrow border along the top, so that when made up as a wall map it may be pasted or cut out. A main area of the debate is whether the map appears in an earlier state than that surviving today. It has been argued that the inset plan of New York harbor, and the scale and imprint cartouche below it, are later insertions, and that they do not appear on the state intended for the wall map. The author believes this is not the case as the scale is the only one on the finished wall map. The plan was inserted at a later stage of production merely because the information became available, and quite possibly because the Duke of York, the harbour's proprietor, was the newly crowned King. It was clearly a late insertion as a sand bar on the main map has been altered to match that in the inset. "The inset is the first printed chart of New York harbour, and superseded the efforts of John Seller in his map of New Jersey, c1675. Taliaferro identified the source as being a manuscript by Philip Wells. East New Jersey had been sold to William Penn and eleven other Quakers in February 1683. They requested that Wells produce a map of New York harbour to help them in their dispute with the colony of New York over stated Island. The manuscript bears the inscription 'Being the Proprietors 1682/3 meaning it must have been produced shortly after acquisition. Further study of the text places the earliest possible date as mid-May 1683. A plain version entitled "A San Draught of New York Harbour" by Philip Wells exists in the Penn Papers now in the Ayer Collection, Newberry Library. Wells laid out the city of Perth Amboy for the Proprietors by May 1683, and while serving as the Surveyor General for New York worked on the boundary dispute between that colony and Connecticut in 1684. Sometime around 1685 he became the Surveyor General for Governor Edmund Andros and composed a manuscript map of Boston harbour. Wells was described in the Minutes as 'one that's both capable and honest in that imploy [surveying], and lives on Stated Island near adjacent to us'. Indeed, his dwelling is noted on the printed map at the northern tip of Staten Island. Thornton in particular had worked with Penn before and it is most probably through the auspices of Penn that the work of Wells reached him. "The cartography of the main map is derived from two chief sources. First the Chesapeake Bay region is derived from Thornton's earlier map co-published with Robert Greene, c1678, it being drawn from the Augustine Herrman, 1673[74]. The major area of alteration as expected is that of the new colony of Pennsylvania. Thornton was involved with the new colony quite closely, producing the key promotional map in 1681. It is this document that Thornton incorporates here, although it appears not without some difficulty. There are signs of erasures from the middle of the Delaware peninsula northwards into Pennsylvania. The Schuylkill River is reduced in length but Philadelphia is present as is the recently renamed Borlington. New England too appears to be derived from the Thornton and Greene with a few minor alterations. The south coast of Long Island

        Resumen de lo sucedido en el Assiento que ajusto Don Nicolas Porcio, encargandose de la Introduccion de Esclavos Negros en las Indias

      Exceptionally rare imprint, referring to the Spanish Assiento (or permission) to traffic black slaves to Nicolas Porcio and the troubles ensued. An Asiento was the permission the Spanish Government granted other countries or parties to sell peoples as slaves to the American colonies, between 1543 and 1834; this, as a result of the Spanish Crown reluctance to deal directly with slavery. Being granted an Asiento was not a minor issue, as they were few, and sometimes extended with a monopoly of the trade. Juan Barroso del Pozo and Nicolas Porcio (an Italian) were granted the Asiento for 6,5 years; by 1684, the company was in trouble, as Porcio who had moved to Cartagena, one of the entry ports- was unable to make his payments to the crown. Shortly before running into financial troubles, Porcio had had dealings with the pirate Van Hoorn, with whom had engaged a preliminary deal to trade in slaves. The imprint begins in an explanatory fashion, with the basics terms of the contract between Pozo and Porcio and the Spanish crown, explaining how they would have to import 10,000 tons, not specifying the cargo (that is, 10,000 tons of humans). Then proceeds to explain the complications encountered along the way. Although undated, the document relates to event which happened after 1682, and refers to the date 1685, so it can´t have been printed before that, and probably not much after; also, another imprint on the same subject, announcing the Assiento, is generally dates as 1683 "Señor : Don Nicolas Porcio, Dize : Que por assiento ajustado en el Año passado de 1682 se encargo de la introduccion de Esclavos Negros en Indias." (CCPB000146097-8). Extremely rare, no copies found in Worldcat (nor of any imprints relating to Nicolas Porcio), and two found in Spain; no copies have appeared for sale at auction according to AE.

A choice copy of Wallis's famous mathematical work on algebra, his only book to be published in English, and the first recorded effort to give a graphical interpretation of the complex roots of a real quadratic equation. Some of his greatest work are contained here, 'including an exposition of infinite series and the first printed account . of Newton's pioneering results. Wallis had long been afraid that foreigners might claim the glory of Newton's achievements as their own before Newton had done so . In addition the book contains a full exposition of Algebra with its history in a hundred chapters, a feat never previously attempted by any author' (DSB). Wallis also devoted the final 28 chapters to a discussion of the methods of exhaustion and of indivisibles with reference to the Arithmetica infinitorum. A number of shorter treatises on analytic three dimensional geometry and sundry other topics of great significance are included, as well as various supplementary treatises concluding with Caswell's A Brief (but Full) Account of the Doctrine of Trigonometry. A pencil note on a fly-leaf identifies this as the Christie-Miller, Britwell, copy. The note is in the hand of Charles Traylen, who bought this copy at a Britwell sale at Sotheby's in 1971. There is something peculiarly satisfying about important English books of the Scientific Revolution in contemporary red morocco. (ESTC R12258)

This adds the adventures of Captain Cooke, Sharp, and others who "lately setting forth from Jamaica, penetrated into the South-Sea, and there ransack't and pillaged...all they could meet."

        Poems by several hands, and on several occasions

      Printed: 1685. 1652-1715 Octavo, . First (and only)edition A-Z, Aa-Ee8, Ff7 (last verso blank). This copy is bound in full nineteenth century mottled calf, slightly rubbed, persereving the spine and label, a good copy This collection includes poems by the Earl of Rochester, Earl of Roscommon, and Earl of Dorset, Cowley, Tate, Evelyn, Waller, and others. Tate, Nahum (c.1652-1715), poet, playwright, and translator, probably born in Ireland... He lived there as a professional writer (with perhaps a brief period as a schoolmaster between 1687 and 1692) for the rest of his life. During the early 1680s Tate wrote committedly in support of Charles II, and initially welcomed James II"s succession in 1685. But he seems to have become rapidly disenchanted with James"s extreme pro-Catholic policies, and at the revolution of 1688-9 transferred his allegiance to William III, whom he hailed as a pious peacemaker and defender of English liberty. After the death of Thomas Shadwell in 1692, on 8 December Tate was appointed to the poet laureateship, a position which he held for life... In 1677 he published his own collection of Poems: sixty-nine short pieces, including love lyrics, melancholy Flatmanesque reflections, and one poem ('On the Present Corrupted State of Poetry') which provides early evidence of his pious tendencies. An expanded and revised edition of the collection, with many metrical and stylistic improvements, appeared in 1684. [Oxford DNB]

Three Dutch editions of works on the diplomatic relations between France and Siam in 1685-1687. In 1684 a Siamese embassy had visited the court of King Louis XIV of France, hoping to strengthen relations with France to counter-balance the British and Dutch influence in Southeast Asia. In response France send its own embassy to Siam under the leadership of the Chevalier de Chaumont. Accompanying De Chaumont were the Abbé de Choisy and various Jesuits including Guy Tachard.Included in this volume are the accounts written by De Choisy and Tachard, both telling essentially the same story, but also complementing and supplementing each other. The account written by the courtier De Choisy, is an "intimate, facile and lively book" (Lach & V. Kley) which gives an enormous amount of information on the court of the Siamese King Narai. In contrast, the account written by Tachard on the official orders of king Louis XIV, "was designed to keep alive the belief that Siam and its king were ripe for conversion, especially by the Jesuits, and that France should do its utmost to develop closer economic, political and intellectual ties" (Lach & V. Kley). Added to these official "observations" are Tachards own, mostly on natural history.In 1687 Tachard returned to Siam, accompanying the second French embassy and a French expeditionary force. Also present were 14 Jesuit scientists, led by Tachard, at the request of the Siamese King, who had asked for mathematicians. Binding worn at the corners and at the spine, the title-label is heavily damaged and the front endpaper is loose. In the first work, the lower left corner of the frontispiece, plate 13 and a large corner of plate 25 are lacking. All damage and missing pieces of the paper have been restored. On the whole slightly browned and with a few spots in the margin; fair copy.

        The duty of servants

      Sam Smith, London 1685 - With an unrecorded title page, most likely an earlier issue than the more common one (see below). Full morocco in an antique style; paper somewhat browned, repairs to a few leaves, including tears on A3 and R4 (with loss of a few words). First edition of this noteworthy treatise describing the religious and moral obligations of those who become servants (referred to in the book as "choosing service"). The scope of the book is quite broad; the author starts with the responsibilities of the parents of children who know they will choose service as a livelihood. Those parents are to tend to the education of children who will choose service. Such children "must accustom themselves at home to the duties they must practice in service." From there, we learn the qualifications which make a good servant, including fear of, and dependence upon God, contentment in their condition, love of their masters, humility, meekness and patience, faithfulness, industry and discretion. The author continues by treating the servant's obligation to religion and the practice thereof, and a servant's responsibilities toward the children of the Master, including the care of their morals, as well as toward strangers. Perhaps most interesting is the discussion of the relationship between servants, including those working for the same Master and those working for others.Examples of prayers are provided, including, for example, for those just entering service, for fidelity to the Master and trust in God, and for performance of duties. A fascinating look into the mindset of the seventeenth century household employee.Our copy appears to have a previously unrecorded title page. Though it begins the same, the text of the title page states: "The duty of servants, containing I. How parents ought to breed up their children, that they may be fit to be imployed and trusted. II. How servants may wisely chuse a service. III. How they are to behave themselves in it in discharging their duty towards God, their master and themselves, with prayers suited to each duty. To which is added a discourse of the sacrament, intended chiefly for servants." All recorded copies state: The duty of servants : containing first, their preparation for and choice of a service, secondly, their duty in service. . . ."Lucas (1648-1715), who lost his sight completely at about age 50, was a highly respected preacher as well as a prolific writer of philosophy and theology for the "non-professional." His best known works were Practical Christianity (1677), An enquiry after happiness (1685), and The plain man's guide to Heaven (1692). [Attributes: First Edition]

        L'Astrologia convinta di Falso col mezzo di nuove esperienze, e Ragioni Fisico-Astronomiche, ó sia la Caccia del Frugnuolo?

      - Fine engraved port. of the author holding a telescope. xiv (i.e. xvi), 158 (i.e. 160) pp. 4to, cont. limp boards (boards slightly soiled, minor spotting), uncut. Venice: F. Nicolini, 1685. First edition and a lovely copy in original state. This book, a summary of Montanari's battles against astrology, aroused great interest and brought about the banning of astrology from the universities. In this work, Montanari "instead of merely fulminating against astrology or repeating old arguments, attempted to show its falsity by experiments as well. His book is furthermore written in a sober, dispassionate and impartial manner which accords well with experimental science."-Thorndike, VIII, p. 342. Montanari (1633-87), professor of mathematics at the University of Bologna, was in large part responsible for laying the groundwork for the extraordinary flowering of science in Bologna at the beginning of the 18th century. His greatest achievements were in astronomy, particularly in the study of variable stars. Fine copy. Initials of "AP" at foot of title. Doodle in lower blank margin of portrait. ?
