        L'Atlas des temps, divise' en quatre livres, la periode de Louis le Grand, la nouvelle methode chronologique, la chronologie sacree de l'ancien Testament, & la chronologie nouvelle des annees de Grace

      Amiens & se Vend, a Paris Jacques et Nicolas Le Gras et Antoine Dezallier 1685. Large Folio. Second Edition augmented. pp. [24], 708, 17, [1]. With moveable paper volvelle (wheel) for discovering solar and lunar eclipses past and present. Divided into four books each opening with an engraved historiated headpiece and decorative initial letters. The title page displays an engraved vignette / device. Contents include numerous astronomical tables as well as 9 fold out tables interspersed with the text. An engraving on p.315 depicts the Hebrew Tabernacle. Sturdily bound in contemporary sprinkled calf with spine gilt in 7 compartments. Some rubbing, wear and staining are present to the covers. A name is printed in an old hand on the upper margin of the title page; an obscured name is also printed in small letters on either side of the edition statement. The faded remnant of an old book seller's stamp is present on the front free end paper. Pages 617-618 contain 3-4 small holes - not obscuring the table numbers. Pages 619-620 contain groupings of larger holes with a number of table numbers obscured. The interior is otherwise clean. The volvelle on page 223 is in excellent condition. Father Jean-Louis d'Amiens's "L'Atlas des temps" (first published in 1683) is a chronographic, geographic and historical work which incorporates elements of cosmography and astronomy. The author apparently proposes naming a new chronological period the "Age of Louis the Great." Extensive sections are devoted to sacred and profane chronology, ancient and ecclesiastical calendars, mobile feasts, and astronomical calculations. The work proposes to correct errors and chronological difficulties in the Old Testament etc. Chronology from the year 1 to 1685 is also discussed. The work was heavily criticized in its time although the Sorbonne called it "un veritable tresor astronomique, georaphique et chronologique de toutes les hisoires divines et profanes" [See Pouy, p. 63]. This second edition is augmented with a response to the criticisms raised after the publication of the first edition. A scarce work. [Houzeau/Lancaster 13 903; Pouy, "Imprimerie Amiens," 63]. Hardcover.

        Ms. letter.

      Macao, 4. XI. 1685.. 2 ½ pp. on folded bifolium (225 x 170 mm). 4to.. Contemporary ms. copy of a long and hitherto unpublished letter by the Belgian Jesuit missionary F. Noel, written (in Latin) to his superior soon after his arrival at the Portuguese colony of Macao (in August 1685). Composed at a critical time in the missionary history of the Far East, the letter describes Noel's journey from Goa via Malacca to Macau, where where his companion, P. Selosse, died, and his failed attempt to enter Japan, where he originally desired to work. Noel writes that he almost followed Claudio Filippo Grimaldi to Beijing, where he was to lend suppport to the aged Jesuit mathematician Ferdinand Verbiest at the Emperor's orders, but preferred to try and enter Japan by a Portuguese ship. He proceeds to give his superior a complete account of his trip and impressions. Noel denounces the doctrinal rigour exterted on the Chinese missionaries by the Vatican (they were to swear to no longer to tolerate the converts' Chinese practice of ancestor worship), stating lucidly that this policy would seriously damage the work of conversion in progress. He also reports the previous year's death of P. Pallu in Tonkin, from where he oversaw China; his successor, Charles Maigrot, is a doctor of the Sorbonne: "[...] Hic etiam invenimus P. Antoniu[m] Thomas. P. Philippus Grimaldi Pekino huc venerat cum duobus primariis mandarinis et magnifi co comitatu, illum jussu imperatoris deducturus in curiam Pekinensem, ad coadjuvandum in rebus mathematicis Patrem Ferdinandum Verbiest jam aetate provectum. Nostrum adventum hic exspectabant ut possent saltem unum e nobis duobus secum deducere et jamquidem destinabar; sed pendentis etiamtum Japoniae proxime aperiendae spes ope navis Lusitanae quae hinc Nangasachum inierat revectura 12 Japones tempestate Macaum actos, et nondum tum redux, me tandem hic retinuerunt hactenus; non enim poterant praedicti Patres exspectare illius navis reditum et successum [...]". - The Portuguese had established a permanent settlement in Macau as early as 1557, and Chinese and Portuguese merchants flocked there. In 1637, Japan's increasing suspicion of the intentions of the Catholic missionaries led the shogun to seal Japan off from all foreign influence, thus severing Macau's most profitable trade route, that between Japan and China. While Macau's Golden Age of trading had effectively ended by 1640, it continued a center of activity for Catholic missionaries, as it was perceived as a gateway for the conversion of the vast population of China. In 1685, the year of this letter, Portugal's privileged position in trade with China ended, following a decision by the emperor of China to allow trade with all foreign countries. The next century would see the advent of England, Holland, France, Denmark, Sweden, the U.S. and Russia, who established factories and offices in Guangzhou and Macau. - After his return to Europe, Noel published his greatest work, "Sinensis Imperii Classici sex" (Prague 1711), a milestone in the history of translation. For the first time, the Chinese "Four Books" (including the teachings of Mencius) were available in a European language. The publication, immediately reviewed by Christian Wolff, was widely received by the scholarly world and inspired both Francois Quesnay and David Hume. Through this portrait of a philosophy without theological interpretation, Noel went on to become one of his century's foremost mediators of Chinese culture. - Includes full transcription.

      1685. Selden's Edition of Fleta And His Ad Fletam Dissertatio Selden, John [1584-1645], Editor.

Ab Anonymo Conscriptus, Atque e Codice Veteri, Autore Ipso Aliquantulum Recentiori, Nunc Primum Typis Editus.

Twyford, T. Bassett [et al.], 1685. [viii], 553, [3] pp. Quarto (8-1/2" x 6-1/2"). Recent period-style quarter calf over cloth, endpapers renewed, early repair to lower corner of title page. Toning, dampspotting to portions of text. Annotations in early hand to margins of a few leaves, interior otherwise fresh. * Second and best edition, "Multis Errobis Purgata." The work by an anonymous author describes the practice of the courts, the forms of writs and an explanation of law terms as they existed during the reign of Edward I. It was John Selden who first called the attention of the public to this ancient treatise, and was instrumental in procuring its publication. While Bracton earns the highest praise as the father of legal learning, Fleta earns a share of it for the illustrations he offered to some of the obscurities found in Bracton. Selden's appended dissertation (pp.453-553) contains many interesting observations about Bracton, Britton, Fleta, and Thornton "and shows what use was made of the Imperial law in England whilst the Romans governed here, at what time it was introduced into this nation, what use was formerly made of it, how long it continued, and when the use of it totally ceased in the King's Courts at Westminster.": Bridgman, A Short View of Legal Bibliography 87.

        An English dictionary, explaining the difficult terms that are used in divinity, husbandry, physick, philosophy, law, navigation, mathematicks, and other arts and sciences. Containing many thousands of hard words . Together with the etymological derivation of them from their proper fountain, whether Hebrew, Greek, Latin, French, or any other language

      printed for Peter Parker, at the Leg and Star over against the Royal Exchange in Cornhil, London 1685 - Fourth edition, sm. 8vo, pp. [8] plus unpaginated lexicon in triple column, genuine first and final blanks present; a clean and fairly crisp copy in full contemporary calf, rubbed and worn, a few small chips out on the spine, but sound. Coles (?1640-1680) was the author of a number of "useful and necessary books for the instruction of beginners," among which were his popular A Dictionart English-Latin and Latin-English (London, 1677) which was still in use in schools even after the arrival of Ainsworth's Thesaurus in 1736; and An English Dictionary (London, 1676). "Still in the "hard words" tradition, Coles included thousands of "old words," obsolete ones from Chaucer's day. His dictionary contained twenty-five thousand words, eight thousand more than the last, augmented edition of Phillips. He shortened Phillips' already brief definitions in order to include more words and more etymological information. Coles did break new ground in including cant (thieves' argot) and dialectical terms. These, taken from other specialized dictionaries, had never before been included in a general English dictionary" (Landau, Dictionaries, p. 43). Alston V,66; Wing C-5073.

        Historie Del Signor D. Colombo. Nelel quali s'hà [sic] particolare, & vera relatione della vita, e de' fatti dell'Ammiraglio D. Christoforo Colombo suo Padre, E dello scoprimento, ch'egli fece dell'Indie Occidentali, dette Mondo Nuovo, hora possedute da Serenissimo Rè [sic] Cattolico, Nuovamente di lingua Spagnuola tradotte nell'Italiana dal Sig. Alfonso Ulloa. Consecrato All'Illustrissimi Sign. Quintiliano Rezzonico, Nobile Barone del Sacro Romano Impero, et Maria Elisabetta di lui Sorella. In Venetia, Appresso Giuseppe Tramontin, 1685.

      In 12, [mm. 136 x 73], pp. 8 ? (40) ? 494 ? (12). Legatura in cartone con striscia color carta da zucchero di rinforzo al dorso, leggeremente allentata. Titolo calligrafato al dorso. Esemplare in barbe di questa rara edizione che presenta un gran numero di errori alla numerazione della pagine (23, 89, 93, 99, 125, 152-153, 155, 160, 196, 206, 214, 215, 240, 283, 296, 299, 337, saltati i nn. 338-339, 363, 433, 448, 468, 469, 470, 471, 491). Frontespizio riquadrato con capilettera, testate e finalini xilografati. Appunti numerici al piatto anteriore e alla carta di sguardia. Hernando Colon ( o Fernando Colombo), nato a Cordova nel 1488 fu il figlio secondogenito di Cristoforo, avuto da Beatriz Enriquez de Arana. Seguì il padre nel quarto ed ultimo viaggio che fece verso le Americhe, nel 1502, in cui esplorò la zona del centro America, naturalmente questo produsse in lui un grande interesse per la geografia e per lo studio. Durante i suoi viaggi in Europa, grazie alla disponibilità economica raccolse circa 15.000 volumi dei quali circa la metà andò poi dispersa e che oggi costituiscono uno dei nuclei della Biblioteca Colombina di Siviglia, con circa 1200 incunaboli. Sui libri annotava personalmente data di acquisto e costo, lasciando dunque dati estremamente importanti sul commercio dei libri tra la fine del XV e l'inizio del XVI secolo, oltre che sui suoi spostamenti in Europa. Alla sua morte, tra le sue volontà lasciò inoltre disposizioni per l'incremento ed il mantenimento della biblioteca che raccoglie anche i circa duecento libri appartenuti al padre eche era all'epoca la più grande biblioteca privata esistente. Questa, che è la sua opera più famosa vide la stampa postuma a Venezia nel 1571: nel proemio esprime il suo orgoglio ?Percioche io sono figliuolo dell'Ammiraglio Don Christoforo Colombo, personaggio degno di eterna memoria, il quale scoprì l'Indie Occidentali, & anco perché io navigai con lui alcun tempo, parea che frà l'alte cose che io hò scritte, dovesse essere una, e la principale la vita, & il maraviglioso scoprimento , che del Nuovo Mondo, e delle Indie ei fece; poiché gli aspri, e continui travagli, e le infermità, ch'ei patì, non gli concessero tempo per ridur ciò di memoria in historie [?] solamente da gli scritti, e lettere, che dell'istesso Ammiraglio rimasero, e da quella à che io mi ritrovai presente, prometto di raccogliere quel, che alla sua historia, & vita s'appartiene?. Fernando fu umanista, matematico e soprattutto cosmografo, ma dedicò la sua vita e il suo patrimonio soprattutto alla sua biblioteca. Morì a Siviglia nel 1539. L'editore dedica l'opera che era stata tradotta da Alfonso Ulloa, scrittore spagnolo ben presto stabilitosi a Venezia dove aveva seguito il padre aggregato all'ambasciata presso la Serenissima e dove tradusse scrittori spagnoli e portoghesi, a Quintiliano Rezzonico ed a sua Sorella Maria Elisabetta. Di questa edizione l'ICCU registra un unico esemplare presso la Biblioteca Diocesana di Narni. Nello stesso anno, sempre a Venezia, vide la luce un'altra edizione coi tipi di Apollonio Zamboni.

A Latin-English dictionary for the most part, it aimed to "direct Attornies and Young Clerks, in the formalities of their Words and Writings" so "their Businesses may be more Clerklike drawn, and fairly entred on record" (Preface).

        L?ARTE DI RESTITUIRE A ROMA LA TRALASCIATA NAVIGATIONE DEL SUO TEVERE. Divisa in tre parti.

      nella Stamperia del Lazzari Varese 1685 In folio (mm. 395x250), 2 opere in 1 vol., p. pelle bazana coeva (antiche scritte a mano e piccole macchie ai piatti), dorso a cordoni con tit. oro, 91 cc.nn. + 15 pp.num. (per l?aggiunta di ONORATI Fr. Maria ?Sac. Congreg. Riparum Tyberis Romana Remunerationis pro illustriss. D. Cornelio Meyer Memoriale?. Romae, Typ. Rev. Cam. Apost., 1685). Testo ornato da grandi capilett., fregi e finali inc. su legno. Dediche al Papa Innocenzo XI e ai Card. Azzolini e Colonna ?Deputati sopra la Navigatione nuova del Tevere?. L?opera è superbamente illustrata da: una grande incisione con figure allegoriche alla dedica e da una serie di 68 incisioni in rame, di notevole qualità per la finezza del disegno e dell?esecuzione. Le figure occupano per lo più lo spazio di metà pagina; 1 è a p. pag. (Colonna Traiana) e 4 a doppia pag. (pianta di Pisa, paludi Pontine, veduta di Piazza del Popolo, veduta di S. Pietro); di particolare interesse sono le figure a soggetto tecnico, come pure la pianta a volo d?uccello di Ancona, il territorio di Fano e di Pisa; magnifiche sono le vedute di Roma (quella di Piazza del Popolo è anche un prezioso documento urbanistico perchè è raffigurata così com?era prima che venisse attuato il progetto del Valadier). Tutto l?affascinante apparato iconografico fu ideato dal Meyer ed in parte dal suo amico e conterraneo B. Denner ed inciso da svariati artisti, quali B. de Ballin, I. Blondeau, Io. Collin, G.B. Falda, Gaspar van Wittel. L?Indice registra al fine - come tav. XVI - quella della Cometa di Halley, della cui esistenza si arrivò persino a dubitare, e che non fu mai inserita in quest?opera (si trova a volte con la segnatura ?K? nella terza parte dell?altra introvabile opera del Meyer ?L?arte di rendere i fiumi navigabili?, Roma, Komarek, 1696). I titoli delle 3 parti in cui è divisa l?opera sono: 1°. Gl?impedimenti, che sono nell?alveo del Tevere da Roma a Perugia, e suoi rimedi (con una nutrita serie di macchine nuove per superare tali impedimenti) - 2°. Le difficoltà, che sono nella Navigatione del Tevere da Roma sino al Mare, e suoi rimedij. - 3°. Nella quale si discorre perchè Roma è stata fabbricata, e mantenuta su le sponde del Tevere.. (sono anche descritti un gran numero di dispositivi idrostatici). L?aggiunta dell?ONORATI, che riguarda la navigazione del Tevere, lettere e documenti relativi al progetto e resoconto dettagliato delle spese del Meyer, costituisce di per sè un importante documento di storia economica relativo al più grande progetto costruttivo del XVII secolo. "Seconda edizione". Cfr. Choix de Olschki,XI,17589: ?Ouvrage des plus curieux et des plus importants sur la navigabilité du Tibre. L?architecte hollandais Cornelius Meyer (1640-1700), outre qu?etre un ingénieur idraulique de grande renommée, a eu un riche esprit inventif dans les sciences méchaniques et ce volume en donne une documentation.

        OF THE RECONCILEABLENESS OF SPECIFICK MEDICINES TO THE CORPUSCULAR PHILOSOPHY. TO WHICH IS ANNEXED A DISCOURSE ABOUT THE ADVANTAGES OF THE USE OF SIMPLE MEDICINES

      London: Printed for Sam. Smith, 1685. FIRST EDITION . Hardcover. 168 x 95 mm (6 5/8 x 3 3/4"). 16 p.l., 225, [1] pp., plus 13 pp. of ads at the back (also with two loose leaves from the end of Boyle's "Short Memoirs for the Natural Experimental History of Mineral Waters" [published 1684] laid in at front, and five leaves of ads from that work bound in before A1 here.). FIRST EDITION. Pleasing recent retrospective unlettered dark polished calf, raised bands. Rear flyleaf with seven lines of handwritten notes in red or purple ink. Fulton 166; Heirs of Hippocrates 366; Norman 306; Osler 949; Waller 1391; Wellcome II, 224; Wing B-4013. Frequent faint browning, occasional minor foxing, isolated corner creases, one tiny round wormhole in bottom margin, but still an excellent copy (especially for a cheaply made book like this), the text quite clean and fresh, and the binding unworn. These two treatises represent the efforts of the foremost scientist of the day to inject some theoretical science into what was then the practical art of medicine. The first treatise sets forth six propositions, with accompanying experiments" that describe Boyle's theories about the effects of certain medicines on the body. The second part is a plea for physicians to stop prescribing extremely complicated concoctions (some containing 20 ingredients) to treat their patients. However, Boyle does endorse the medieval belief in the healing powers of gems and stones from the heads of snakes. The youngest of the 14 children of the earl of Cork, Robert Boyle (1627-91) in 1660 published "New Experiments Physico-Mechanical," which became a milestone in the history of science. He was one of the founders of the Royal Society and a most active member throughout his life. Locke, Newton, and Evelyn were among his friends and correspondents.

Dans cette oeuvre majeure, l'auteur contredit le phénomène de génération spontanée, héritage d'un concept élaboré par Aristote, qui prévalait encore au XVIIème siècle dans le monde scientifique, et non démenti par Galilée qui en 1632 dans son livre ''Dialogo dei due massimi sistemi del mondo" reconnaît partager cette thèse avec les aristoteliciens. Francesco Redi démontrera par ses observations au microscope que l'apparition de vers dans les cadavres n'est absolument pas un phénomène de génération spontanée mais le fruit d'une ponte, affirmation qui sera corroborée par son collègue Felice Fontana en 1767 et 1781. Francesco Redi (Arezzo 1626 - Pise 1697), étudiera le venin des serpents, notamment de la vipère, prouvant l'innocuité du venin s'il est ingéré, enfin il est considéré comme l'inventeur de la médecine légale.

Joseph Hall, bishop of Norwich, ordained him deacon: be never took priests orders, holding that he was properly ordained to the ministerial office. He was one of the clerks at the Westminster Assembly, one of Cromwells chaplains and a trier, and held livings at Stoke Newington (1645) and St Pauls, Covent Garden (1656). He disapproved of the execution of Charles I. In 1658 he assisted Baxter to draw up the Fundamentals of Religion. He helped to restore Charles II. and became one of his chaplains, refusing the deanery of Rochester. In 1662 he lost his living under the Act of Uniformity and preached in his own rooms and in other parts of London. For this he was arrested in 1670. (Encyclopedia Britannica 11th edition).

        Defensio Fidei Nicaenae

      Oxonii - Theatro Sheldoniano, 1685 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A scarce first edition of George Bulls's treatise in defence of the ante-Nicene church fathers. George Bull (16341710) was an English theologian and Bishop of St David's. He was born, 25 March 1634, in the parish of St. Cuthbert, Wells, and educated in the grammar school at Wells, and then at Blundell's School in Tiverton under Samuel Butler. Before he was fourteen years old he went into residence at Exeter College, Oxford, where he became a friend of Thomas Clifford. In 1649, his tutor Baldwin Ackland refused to take the engagement, and together they left the university and settled at North Cadbury in Somerset. He wrote four major theological treatises in Latin, one on justification and three on the Trinity. Bull wrote the Defensio fidei Nicenae in 1680 to defend himself against the charge of Socinianism. Though three publishers refused to publish the work, William Jane, regius professor of divinity at Oxford, convinced Bishop Fell to intervene and have it published in 1685. Despite the delay in publication, it received the endorsement of Jacques-Benigne Bossuet, the Gallican bishop of Meaux, and the acclamation of his English colleagues, making the work the standard defence of Nicene orthodoxy. With bookplate to front pastedown of one Thomas N. Parker, and an attractively engraved title page. Condition: In a calf binding. Externally, rather worn with repairs to leather at corners. Joints cracked. Internally, firmly bound, generally bright and clean but with the occasional spot and mark. Overall: GOOD.

        A True Account and Declaration of the Horrid Conspiracy

      London: Thomas Newton, 1685 Book. Good. Full-Leather. Presume 1st. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Balance of title and printing information, "Against the Late King, His Present Majesty, and the Government, As It was order'd to be Published by His Late Majesty. In The Savoy: Printed By Thomas Newcomb, one of his majesties Printers-1685." It seems reasonable to assert it as the first appearance of this much reprinted work and we do so for the following reasons. The collector's notes, which I have never caught wrong, with the rare exception of times passage causing reattribution, asserts in his penciled notes on the books first endsheet, verso, as follows, "By Thos. Sprat. Bp. of Rochester- S5065- First Edition-Large Paper copy in contemporary Morocco." Additionally the later printings seem to be done in a slightly smaller format. These boards measure 14 1/4 x 9 5/8", and the text 13 3/4 x 9 1/8", all edges gilt. Collation is folio as are the later printings. A superb old thing, I'll try to give a thorough listing of assets, flaws and structure. The spine is an attractive 6 ribbed affair, with abbreviated title between 2nd and 3rd down, the other tween rib squares are lavishly tooled and gilt worked. The boards have gilt edge lines and square floral cornered embellishments closer to their centers. The inside edges of the boards have a thin gilt-stamped tracery. The exterior hinges seem sturdy if beginning to age with ultra fine cracking. No leather restorers have been used (lanolins/waxes) on archivist advice. Spine not notably chipped, though bottom extremity has some color abrasion. Board tips have abrasion(esp. . bottom) and bumping, but not heavily shaped to text. Above the previously mentioned collector notes (verso 1st endsheet) appears the following inked inscription in dark rust, "Press B Shelf B No 2" I see no other marks as such. Xlibrary? seems unlikely. Perhaps a copy that stayed on the printers shelf for some reason? Interior, marbled PDs and endsheet verso blank (this 2nd gutter seems a bit rough and quite gappy) 2nd endsheet, title page with large label laid verso (lion over 10 dots in 1/2 diamond pattern) next 2 leaves are statements to James II from Sunderland, verso 2nd blank. Text commences page 1 to 167, verso blank. Next page is title page of 'Copies' section verso blank, then 1 thru 141. A gatefold map is in place between pages 134-135, and while showing its age has near perfect folding and minimal wear. The finishing at the back is similar to the front, small pencil note endsheet. The last marbled endsheet and PD have odd abrasioned look at gutter and the pastedown has a very darkened area, forward top to bottom. The text is handsome and unusually clean and clear, very little foxing, if having the customary age issues (smudge, mild pattern darkening) in small degree. It is now stored airtight. Standard domestic shipping at our customary one book price. We furnish insurance and delivery confirmation on all items over $75.00 at our expense. Overseas shipping by arrangement..

An excellent example, label chipped, else a beautifully printed, clean, copy in handsome period binding. Wing / P2583. Lowndes 1886. ESTC Citation No. R36682. & First (and only) Edition. In the late sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, two competing theories were put forth to account for the source of all of the water in the oceans and rivers of the world. In his Discourse admirables of 1580, the French Huguenot Bernard Palissy maintained that rainfall alone is the sole source of that vast flood, falling on mountains then flowing through cracks in the ground until, diverted by some obstruction, it bubbles to the surface as springs, flowing ultimately into rivers and then oceans. Almost 100 years later, in 1664, following the suggestion of Descartes, the Jesuit philosopher Athanasius Kircherin, in his Mundus subterraneus (“Subterranean World”), posited the idea of a great subterranean sea supplying water to the oceans through the action of tides pumping sea water through hidden channels to points of outlet at springs. Palissy had earlier dismissed that idea, since, for it to be true, sea level would have to be higher than mountaintops—an impossibility. But writing in 1685, Plot proposed that the pressure of air could force water up the insides of mountains through underground channels, a conclusion he published as De origine fontium, in a Latin translation by Christopher Wase, and then the following year, in English, in his Natural History of Staffordshire. (The great debate was finally settled at the close of the century when "Pierre Perrault and Edmé Mariotte conducted hydrologic investigations in the basin of the Seine, establishing that local annual precipitation was more than ample to account for the annual runoff." [Britannica]) Markree Castle (in which the library presumably was), in Collooney, County Sligo, Ireland, is the ancestral seat of the Cooper family. In 1830, Col. Edward Joshua Cooper MP (1798-1863) set up Markree Observatory in the castle grounds, and for a number of years Cooper’s telescope was the largest in the world. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. "T René Descartes supposed that the sea water diffused through subterranean channels into large caverns below the tops of mountains. To explain the rise of subterranean water beneath mountains, the chemist Robert Plot appealed to the pressure of air, which forces water up the insides of mountains.

        A New Map of New England, New York, New Iarsey.

      1685 - A New Map of New England, New York, New Iarsey, Pensilvania, Maryland and Virginia. By Philip Lea at the Atlas and Hercules in Cheap-side, London [c. 1685]. Third state. 21 1/4 x 17 3/4 in. Historical BackgroundA highly important map of the English Colonies in North America, including the earliest printed plan of New York Harbor. The present example is the third state of the map, bearing the imprint "By Philip Lea at the Atlas and Hercules in Cheap-side" in place of Thornton, Morden, and Lee's imprint, a distinguishing feature of the second state. No examples of the first state, lacking the New York inset, survive. Two later states also appeared. Thornton, Morden, and Lea's map is the first obtainable state of the finest general map of England's American colonies. It is also one of the earliest to include Augustine Herrman's cartography for Virginia and Maryland, as well as one of the earliest depictions of the Pennsylvania colony (est. 1681), the first printed chart of New York Harbor, and significant additions to the cartography of New England.According to Pritchard and Taliaferro, the map was issued as part of a 4-sheet wall map, but its publishers, three of London's leading map publishers, limited their fiscal risk by placing all English colonies except Carolina on one sheet and giving it a separate title that would be trimmed off or pasted over when the sheet was used as part of the wall map. The map shows the English colonies from Cape Ann in Massachusetts to Cape Henry at the mouth of Chesapeake Bay, extends as far north as the tributaries of the Hudson, in the southwest it shows the Delaware and Susquehannah Rivers and as far west as the tributaries of the Potomac and Rappahannock.The geography of Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and New Jersey are derived from the Thornton-Greene Mapp of Virginia Mary=land, New Jarsey, New=York, & New England (ca. 1678), which is, in turn, based largely on Augustine Herrman's Virginia and Maryland (1673).The Thornton, Morden, and Lea map departs from its precursors by showing the new colony of Pennsylvania, adjusting the course of the Delaware River, and adding place names. In New York and New England, Thornton, Morden, and Lea rely on earlier examples, notably John Seller's Mapp of New England (1676) but add Long Island's barrier beaches as well as numerous place names along the Connecticut coast and on Cape Cod. Also, the boundaries between Massachusetts, Plymouth and Connecticut colonies are drawn, and several roads are shown.The inset of New York Harbor is also significant as the first separate printed chart of the area. Based on a 1683 survey conducted by Philip Wells for William Penn and the other proprietors of West New Jersey, the New York Harbor chart is far more accurate than earlier work, clearly showing the shoals that limited shipping to a single deep-water channel around Sandy Hook and into harbor.
