        Histoire des sevarambes, peuples qui habitent une partie du troisième continent, communément appelé la Terre Australe

      - Amsterdam, Pierre Mortier, 1686. 2 tomes in-12 en 1 volume, pagination continue, [18]-412p. Rare édition 17ème de ce grand roman UTOPIQUE, une des premières utopies modernes. L¿auteur, protestant français, bilingue anglais-français, publie la première édition en Angleterre en deux parties en 1675 et 1679. La première édition française, probablement traduite par l¿auteur, est publiée en 1677 et 1679. Ce livre sera un succès et il connut donc de très nombreuses éditions. Après la révocation de l¿Edit de Nantes, il émigre en Hollande en 1685 et on perd alors sa trace. Cette édition est donc probablement éditée alors qu¿il est en Hollande. Les sources le donnant pour mort en 1672 sont donc erronées. L¿ouvrage fut ensuite traduit en allemand et italien. Reliure demi-basane 19e, dos lisse orné, pièce de titre maroquin. Papier vieilli, manque le bas de la page de titre. Plusieurs ex-libris : François Delbart, A. Delbart et Charles Delbart. RARE édition du 17ème, complète. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Les plaintes des Protestans, cruellement opprimez dans le royaume de France.

      Cologne: Chez Pierre Marteau 12mo (13.7 cm, 5.4"). [2], 192 pp.. 1686 First edition of these "Déclamations énergiques contre Louis XIV, à l'occasion des persécutions suscitées aux protestants" (Brunet), written by a Huguenot minister and theologian who fled France after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes.

Provenance: Howard Osgood. Contemporary calf, spine elegantly gilt extra, board edges with gilt rolls; leather acid-pitted, edges and extremities a bit rubbed. Title-page with small inked owner's name and institutional pressure-stamp. Damp-spotting to first and last few pages; some leaves starting to separate, many with lower outer corners crumpled.

Contemporary calf, gold-tooled spine; rebacked, with original backstrip laid down, modern endpapers.

      Mendelssohn I, pp. 413-414; STCN (5 copies); Tiele, Bibl. 298 note. First edition of the French translation of Dapper's illustrated description of Africa, translated by Dapper himself. Dapper's description includes of Morocco, Guinea, Southern Africa, Congo and Angola, Eastern Africa (Nubia - Mozambique, Madagascar, Cape Verde Islands, Canary Islands, Malta), containing the names, rivers, towns, settlements, plants and animals of the regions and the customs, costumes, language, riches, religion and government of its peoples. The work starts with an extensive description of Egypt, with double-page views of Alexandria and Cairo, the pyramids, plants, etc. Surely no book spoke more to the imagination of the 17th-century Europe concerning the exotic lands just being explored, and it did much to establish the Western view of Africa among both scholars and the general public. Binding rebacked, as noted, and with some other restorations. Some small spots and waterstains in the lower and inner margin; a good copy.

        Document Signed (with her mark), on paper.

      [Philadelphia] Small 4to (19.5 x 18.5 cm, 7.7 x 7.28"), 4 pp., with integral address leaf, 2 pp. blank.. 12 October 1686 A rare glimpse into the earliest days of Philadelphia, this unique document was => written within four years of the city's founding (1682). Widow Elizabeth Shorter was a London glover who moved to Pennsylvania with her grandson Isaac Knight about 1683 and was one of the => First Purchasers, that select group of 751 individuals who bought the first offering of land from William Penn. She was certainly in contact with Penn by 1681, when he signed an indenture to her in London; two years later, he signed an official land grant confirming the location and cost of her 250-acre plot. Witness to the lack of government structure at the time, being => written on scrap paper and without any official notarization, the deed in hand documents the sale of widow Shorter's "housing in the front street of Delawar with my lott" to Christopher Libthorpe for the sum of one hundred pounds sterling. Indited in secretary hand with witnesses' signatures in both italic and secretary, the deed is followed by two blank pages on the interior (as usual); the witnesses were John Morroy (Morrey?) and John Best (Lest?), who both had fine signatures. Not unexpectedly, the widow signed with her mark. A docket on the last leaf's verso reads, "Xher [Christopher] Libthorpe To George Rothe" and another, in a second hand, adds, "and a Deed from Pickering to Post for a lot," with a computation below on the same page. The watermark appears to be a heart-shaped shield crowned by a fleur de lis, or trefoil; however we find no match in Briquet or Gravell. Previously folded in multiple places, and now along bifolium crease only; four small holes in the upper corner where previously stapled or pinned. "Lacing," a result of the iron gall ink's exposure to moisture, is in evidence here but does not affect the legibility or stability of the deed, which is neatly repaired in two places at the outer edge of the first recto near the remnants of the red wax seal. => An attractive relic of colonial American, Pennsylvania/Philadelphia, commercial, legal, and women's history.

        Superb vellum “foot of the fine” 17th century document from the short reign of King James II regarding a sale of land

      Westminster [England], January 31 [c. 1686 - 1688]. 27.5" X 20.75". "Manuscript Document Signed “J Rex” by a court officer, one page, 27.5” x 20.75”. [London, 1685-1687]. In the hand of a scrivener. A portrait of King James II appears in the upper left, adorned with elaborate swirls. His name in Latin in Old English lettering is across the top: “Jacobus Secundus Dei gra” (“James Second by the grace of God”). Above his name is a 19.5” x 5” ornate border of foliage and animals, including a lion, unicorn, dragon, and serpents, beneath which is penned: “Sold in Cliffords Inne lane,” the printing establishment which produced the document. Simpler foliage adorns the left and right sides of the text. Documents of this type were said to have been penned in “old law-Latin, flavored with Norman French.” At the bottom is a 1.5” x 1.25” portion of vellum, which had been attached to the royal seal which is no longer present, bearing a handwritten, ornate “J Rex” signature placed there by a court officer. Light folds, some rubbing of letters. Generally, in apparent fine condition. Partial translation: “James Second by the grace of God King of England, Scotland, France and Ireland, Defender of the Faith & to All to whom our present letters may come, Greeting. Know Ye that among the records and Feet of Fines with the proclamations thereof made according to the form of the Statute in that case lately enacted and provided...This is the Final Concord made in the court of our Lord the King at Westminster...and of the reign of our Lord James Second by the grace of God King of England, Scotland, France and Ireland, Defender of the Faith, &...” The “fine” was the record of an amicable agreement in court ending in an action at law to enforce a covenant to convey real property. This document is a chirography of a fine of land called the “foot of the fine.” In order to legally record a transfer of land, the person to whom the land was to be conveyed instituted a lawsuit against the owner, levying a fine which was understood by the participants to simply be a means of transferring property. There were five parts of the fine, each regarding an aspect of the sale and its recording. This document represents the fifth and last part of the fine called the foot. It includes all the details of the land sale, stating the parties, dates, and place, and the Justices before whom it was acknowledged or levied. The use of the fine in land sales was abolished in 1833 and replaced by a simpler legal action. Because of the many details which they give of the topography of the land as well as, in many cases, valuable genealogic and court information, “foot of the fine” documents are among the most valuable of all British public records."

Ein Vergleich mit den Schlüsselseiten des Exemplars der ULB Halle legt nahe, dass beide Varianten aus der gleichen Druckerei stammen. Da die vorliegende Variante mit einem Schlussstück endet und das letzte Blatt verso weiß ist, handelt es sich wohl um den ersten Druck, dem im gleichen Jahr ein vermehrter zweiter folgte. Zu dem als Verfasser bzw. Übersetzer von Schriften in den Jahren 1686 und 1688 nachweisbaren J.L. SUMATURE DRIVIUS, kann ich außer der Vermutung, er sei ein vertriebener Hugenotte gewesen, keine weiteren Angaben finden. Aus hugenottischer Sicht reflektiert der Verfasser die Situation Frankreichs nach der Aufhebung (1685) des seit 1598 geltenden, die Rechte der Reformierten in Frankreich garantierenden Edikts von Nantes durch LUDWIG XIV. Er warnt vor Aufständen seiner Glaubensgenossen und tritt nachdrücklich für Glaubens- und Religionsfreiheit ein. Mit seiner Politik gefährde der durch Minister und Klerus schlecht beratene König das Reich. – Zu 2) Vereint zwei in den Jahren 1685 (Franckreich schäme dich!: Das ist, heimlich und unverhoffte Entdeckung derer Frantzösischen fast an allen Europäischen Höffen geschmiedete und sehr übel gelungene Rathschläge lesenswürdig der curieusen Welt vor Augen gestellt.) und 1684 (Hanß Knorr der Teutsche, Quackerius. Der Engeländer, Fitzliputzli. Das Frantzmännichen, und der Holländische Muff. Uber die gegenwärtige Unruhe am Nieder-Rhein-Strohm.) zuerst erschienene Pamphlete, in denen auf eher volkstümliche Weise polemisch gegen die Politik Frankreichs unter LUDWIG XIV. argumentiert wird, wobei auch bemerkenswert ist, dass „Fitzliputzli, das Frantzmännichen“ bereits das gleiche Kauderwelsch spricht, wie es 50 Jahre später J.C.TRÖMER seinen „Deusch Franços Jean Chrétien Toucement“ radebrechen lässt.

      Padua: Cadorino, 1686. Half title. Quarto. Contemporary vellum, manuscript title. Moderate soiling to boards, small repair to spine tail. Rear free endpaper lacking. A clean copy. Very good. First issue of Terra Rossa's famous account detailing discoveries in the New World, as denoted by the 1686 date and the privilege below the imprint reading: "Et Privilegio del Serenissimo Principe." Includes much information on Venetian explorers, going so far as to credit Marco Polo with discovering Australia, and attempts to rename Terra Australis as Terra Australe Magallanica to honor Magellan. In this work Terra Rossa "attempted to prove that Venetians had discovered all lands unknown to the ancients, including America and Terra Australis..." (Hiatt, TERRA INCOGNITA, p.261). He also defends the claims of the Zeno brothers to have made a northern discovery of America prior to Columbus. A rare and surprisingly little-known work focused on early exploration of the Southern Hemisphere. SABIN 94858. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 686/157/.

        Mémoires historiques et géographiques du royaume de la Morée

      1686 - (4), 232, 42 pl. Amsterdam, Chez Wolfgang, Waesberge, Boom, & van Someren, 1686, in-12, (4), 232, 42 pl, plein veau d'époque tacheté, dos à cinq nerfs richement orné, Première édition traduite en français d’après l’italien de l'un des ouvrages majeurs du Père Vincenzo Maria Coronelli, grand géographe et cartographe vénitien. Très connu grâce à ses exceptionnels globes faits pour les plus grands d’Europe, et dans les dimensions les plus variées, Coronelli, de retour à Venise, fonde en 1684 l’Accademia cosmografica degli Argonauti, première société géographique visant à favoriser les études cosmo-geo-cartographiques et à en publier les résultats. Élu en 1685 cosmographe officiel de la République de Venise, il acquit le privilège de réaliser un grand Atlas. Entre temps, le gouvernement vénitien décide de publier tout le matériel recueilli pour ce projet, dans Memorie istoriografiche del Regno di Morea e Negroponte et dans l’édition réduite Conquiste della Repubblica in Dalmazia, Epiro e Morea dans l’intention de montrer aux Vénitiens les territoires conquis pendant leurs Campagnes. Mémoires historiques et géographiques du royaume de la Morée parle de la guerre de Morée qui opposa la République de Venise aux Turcs de 1684 à 1699. L’ouvrage eut un tel écho à l’étranger, qu'il fut traduit une quinzaine de fois en deux ans. Coronelli se place en tant que vrai journaliste de guerre et suit jour après jour, muni de cartes et de plans, le commandant Francesco Morosini, qui portera la « Serenissima » à la victoire du Péloponnèse. L'ouvrage contient 42 planches illustrées : vues des villes, plans et éléments historiques. Restaurations aux coiffes Bel exemplaire. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Document Signed (with her mark), on paper.

      [Philadelphia] Small 4to (19.5 x 18.5 cm, 7.7 x 7.28"), 4 pp., with integral address leaf, 2 pp. blank.. 12 October 1686 A rare glimpse into the earliest days of Philadelphia, this unique document was => written within four years of the city's founding (1682). Widow Elizabeth Shorter was a London glover who moved to Pennsylvania with her grandson Isaac Knight about 1683 and was one of the => First Purchasers, that select group of 751 individuals who bought the first offering of land from William Penn. She was certainly in contact with Penn by 1681, when he signed an indenture to her in London; two years later, he signed an official land grant confirming the location and cost of her 250-acre plot. Witness to the lack of government structure at the time, being => written on scrap paper and without any official notarization, the deed in hand documents the sale of widow Shorter's "housing in the front street of Delawar with my lott" to Christopher Libthorpe for the sum of one hundred pounds sterling. Indited in secretary hand with witnesses' signatures in both italic and secretary, the deed is followed by two blank pages on the interior (as usual); the witnesses were John Morroy (Morrey?) and John Best (Lest?), who both had fine signatures. Not unexpectedly, the widow signed with her mark. A docket on the last leaf's verso reads, "Xher [Christopher] Libthorpe To George Rothe" and another, in a second hand, adds, "and a Deed from Pickering to Post for a lot," with a computation below on the same page. The watermark appears to be a heart-shaped shield crowned by a fleur de lis, or trefoil; however we find no match in Briquet or Gravell. Previously folded in multiple places, and now along bifolium crease only; four small holes in the upper corner where previously stapled or pinned. "Lacing," a result of the iron gall ink's exposure to moisture, is in evidence here but does not affect the legibility or stability of the deed, which is neatly repaired in two places at the outer edge of the first recto near the remnants of the red wax seal. => An attractive relic of colonial American, Pennsylvania/Philadelphia, commercial, legal, and women's history.

      AMSTERDAM, dopo il 1686 (con il Privilegio)Incisione originale eseguita su lastra di rame e finemente dipinta alla mano d'epoca in fresca e vivace coloritura. Titolo all'extra - margine superiore; al centro, i due emisferi sormontati dai poli; agli angoli, piacevoli raffigurazioni mitologiche delle quattro stagioni; la gioiosa primavera, l'estate con la produzione dei suoi prodotti, l'autunno con scene pastorali e il rigido inverno; all'angolo inferiore sinistro, piccola edicola con iscritto: Amsterdam, Chez Gerard Valck par le Dam avec Previlegi. La pregevole rappresentazione geografica si basa presumibilmente su una di epoca precedente ideata dal cartografo ed editore francese  Alexis Hubert Jalliot nel 1674. Entrambe le mappe utilizzano la proiezione Sanson - Flamstead, che mostrano parallelismi e l'equatore come linee rette e altri meridiani come curvi. La carta in esame rappresenta il mondo come era conosciuto nella seconda metà del Seicento: la California è ancora raffigurata come un'isola secondo la tradizione cinquecentesca. Solo dopo il viaggio del missionario Eusebio Kino la California venne definita come penisola. Sia per il Sud America che per l'Africa, la mappa di Valck offre significativi miglioramenti descrittivi, così come per dettagli di Asia e India. Gli emisferi del sud, la regione dell'Australia è denominata Nouelle Hollande, con quasi completa delineazione delle coste. Questa fu una grande innovazione rispetto alle precedenti carte di Jaillot, che non aveva ancora definito quei territori. Incisore e artista, Gerald Valck lavorò a Londra e ad Amsterdam, dove collaborò con Peter Schenk, noto cartografo.  Nel 1710, il figlio di Valck, Leonardus, sposò Maria Schenk, e le due famiglie mantennero l'attività cartografica per tutta  la prima metà del XVIII secolo.  Esemplare in buone condizioni, piccolo margine, ma presente tutto intorno alla carta; qualche piccolissima lacerazione ai margini, richiuse al verso della carta o anticamente o con nastro da restauro.

        The Crucified Jesus: or, A Full Account of the Nature, End, Design & Benefits of the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper with Necessary Directions, Prayers, Praises and Meditations, To Be Used by Persons Who Come to the Holy Communion

      London: Printed for Sam Lowndes, 1686 The rare first edition. There were five editions printed in the 17th century and many more in the 18th century. Contemporary gilt-tooled and paneled morocco. Decorative gilt spine with raised bands. All edges gilt. . Octavo. Copper engraved frontispiece by Faithorne. Wood-engraved headpieces and initial letters. Title page printed in black and red. Some leaves are misnumbered, but text is consecutive and complete. Binding extremities rubbed. Front hinge starting but still sound. Offsetting from frontispiece to preliminary blank and title page. Occasional soiling and foxing. Contemporary inscriptions and one later pencil inscription on preliminary blanks. A very good copy of a scarce book in an attractive binding. Anthony Horneck (1641-1697) was a Church of England clergyman. He shared the orthodox protestant belief in witches, contributing an appendix of Swedish cases to Joseph Glanville's Saducismus triumphatus (1682, second edition). In the 17th century, both the Lutheran and the Reformed orthodox parties displayed an unparalleled enthusiasm for Rabbinic and Hebrew studies; this was the strongest feature of Horneck's intellectual equipment and led to the award of a Cambridge DD in 1681. Much of Horneck's literary output was devoted to the rules of life for Christians, and his Fire of the Altar, a work designed to assist the devout communicant, ran to at least fourteen editions. In 1693, he became chaplain to William III and the first of a series of court chaplains and German preachers in the Savoy who played a distinguished role in British religious life for most of the eighteenth century.

Written originally in the Arabick Tongue … Wherein is demonstrated, by what Steps and degrees, humane Reason, improved by diligent Observation and Experience, may arrive to the knowledge of natural things, and from thence to the discovery of Supernaturals; more especially of God, and the Concernments of the other World. Set forth not long ago in the Original Arabick, with the Latin Version, by Edw. Pocock …1671. And now Translated into English. Octavo (181 × 110 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, small gilt foliate lozenges to the compartments, double fillet panel in blind to the boards, edges sprinkled red. With the initial licence leaf. Slightly rubbed, some restoration on the joints, lacking letterpiece, small hole in B7, not affecting text, light browning overall, a very good copy. First edition thus, the Ashwell translation into English of this highly significant work; rare in commerce with just four separate copies seen at auction since 1939, this copy from the library of the Earls of Macclesfield at Shirburn Castle, with book plate and blind-stamps as usual. "On one level, the Tufaylian narrative is an adventure story: an abandoned infant, Hayy ibn Yaqzan ["Alive son of Awake"], grows up on an uninhabited island where he is nurtured by a gazelle … [and] discovers the laws of the universe, eventually achieving a mystical state. His meeting with Absal, someone from another island ?- civilized this time ?- leads to his contact with society. This contact is not fruitful, and both men return to the[ir] original island[s] to live happily ever after" (Fedwa Malti-Douglas, "Hay ibn Yaqzan as Male Utopia" in Laurence Conrad, ed., The World of Ibn Tufayl, p. 53). Ibn Tufayl's work has been identified as a likely source for Robinson Crusoe, the origin of the philosophical novel and the Entwicklungsroman, as well as a key influence on the development of Enlightenment thought, and in particular Locke's Essay on Human Understanding: "One could call this work, with perfect justification, a case study for the main thesis of Locke's Essay" (G.A. Russell ed., The 'Arabick' Interest of the Natural Philosophers in Seventeenth-Century, p. 224). Ibn Tufayl (d. 1185) was a Spanish Muslim who served as court physician to Abu Ya'qub Yusuf, Almohad ruler of Morocco and Andalusia (DSB, XIII, p. 488), "the only one of the early Muwahhid [Almohad] caliphs to display an interest in philosophy"; it was at his court that Ibn Tufayl managed to compose a work which "reflects Neoplatonic elements picked up, inter alia from two works by al-Ghazali: al-Munqidh min al-dalal [The Deliverer from Error] and Mishkat al-anwar [The Niche of Lights]; Ibn Sina's [Kitab] al-Isharat wa'l-tanbihat [Book of Pointers and Reminders] and his Kitab al-Shifa' [Book of Healing] are both important sources of ideas and direct quotations, not only in Ibn Tufayl's conception of Neoplatonic philosophy, but also in his psychology and thinking on cognition. Perhaps most interesting of all, the very act of communicating his philosophical message in the form of an allegorical tale reflects an attitude toward demonstrative validity grounded squarely ?- if not explicitly, on the Poetics of Aristotle and al-Farabi's commentary on this work … Not less important is the dimension of Sufi theosophy" (Laurence Conrad, "Introduction", in op. cit. pp. 14-16). "The younger Edward Pococke, a son of the first Laudian professor of Arabic at Oxford, published the Arabic text with a Latin translation in 1671, under the title Philosophus autodidactus. From this Latin, an English translation was made in 1674 by a Scottish Quaker, George Keith, through whom it influenced the Quaker theology of the period. Another English translation was made in 1686 by George Ashwell, an Anglican controversialist … among other aims, Ashwell hoped that the work of this 'self-taught philosopher' would be a corrective to the burgeoning rationalism of his contemporaries" (ODNB).
