        Histoire des Avanturiers qui se sont signalez dans les Indes

      First French edition. Besides its rarity, this edition is also important for its illustrations don´t derive from either the Dutch original or two earliest English editions. The translation was prepared by Frontigniéres, from Exquemelin´s own manuscript; the first edition in all was published in Dutch in 1678 under the title De Americaensche Zee-Roovers. The success was immediate, translations followed and editions continued until the 18th century. Exquemelin (1645 - 1707) was a French Huguenot, in 1666 made sale towards the Antilles, his ship was allegedly attacked by pirates and after reaching Tortuga he was apparently sold to a local who subsequently sold to a surgeon of some sort, he would teach him his office and eventually grant him his freedom against payment. At an uncertain date, Exquemelin became a privateer; as a pirate, he participated in the raid of Maracaibo in 1669 and that of Panama in 1670 under Morgan. His experiences and observations were concentrated in his memoires. The detail with which Exquemelin describes the lootings, plundering, life and adventures of these seamen is, and was unequaled for a long time. The illustrations include seven folding maps and views; the Maracaibo and Panama maps closely follow the Dutch, a large folding map of the Spanish Main is entirely new to this edition. The text from this edition was substantially augmented by the editor, Journel; he is also responsible for shading light onto the term "buccaneer". Provenance: the Hamsworth copy (lot 6479, Sotheby´s, December 1949, 2/10/- GBP).

Saladin (or more properly, Salah al-Din) is renowned in the East as the great Mohammedan ruler who united the lands of Egypt, Syria, Palestine and Mesopotamia into a single Muslim empire. In 1187 he launched a "jihad" against the Christian invaders of the Holy Land and captured Jerusalem, showing clemency to the Christian inhabitants. He went on to drive the crusaders from every fortification in the land, except Acre, which he besieged unsuccessfully for two years. This volume also contains selections from the universal history of Abu al-Fida, a descendant of Saladin, who took part in the campaigns against the crusaders and later became sultan (1320). His history covers the period from creation to 1329. The editor and translator Albert Schultens (1686-1750) was a Dutch Orientalist, and regarded as the chief Arabist of his time.Title-page browned, some minor foxing and some damp stains, mostly marginal, otherwise in good condition.

He used Arabic to interpret obscure Hebrew passages in the Bible. Schultens's extensive grammar was one of the most influential Hebrew grammars of the 18th century. Slightly browned and foxed, but otherwise in very good condition and only slightly trimmed (preserving an occasional deckle). The gold of the spine and edges was not well bonded and has been largely lost. The binding shows a few small worm holes, small cracks in the spine and other minor damage, but is still good.

        Bibliotheque Universelle et Historique

      1686. Complete set of this late seventeenth century magazine, published in Amsterdam, made up of various editions but all from the same provenance. Vol. I - XXI all in one volume ; (I & II from the second edition of 1687 ; vol. XVII & XVIII & XIX from the second edition of 1699 ; vol. XX, third edition 1702 ; vol. XXI, third edition 1707 ; Vol. XXII - XXV each in two volumes from the second edition dated between 1698 and 1701). 25 years in 29 volumes. An index volume XXVI was published in 1719 after Fletcher's death. 12mo. All volumes in marbled wrappers, uncut and unopened. Among the many scholarly journals published all over Europe in the decades around 1700 Jean Le Clerc's Bibliothèques, published in Amsterdam, occupied a special place. Jean Le Clerc, a theologian and refugee from Geneva, published three periodicals: The Bibliothèque Universelle et Historique (1686-1693); the Bibliothèque Choisie (1703-1713) and the Bibliothèque Ancienne et Moderne (1714-1727). Thanks to his journalistic activities, we now have an excellent picture of contemporary scholarship in the Republic of Letters, the more so since, in the Republic of Letters, the editor did not need to worry so much as his colleagues in other countries about all kinds of repressive measures resulting from sometimes strict censorship. Jean Le Clerc published his periodicals for this large group of interested people who didn't have the time or the financial means to read everything that was being published, like doctors, magistrats and merchants. The periodicals were not intended for specialized scholars. They were published in a small format to enable readers to carry them easily and read them everywhere. This size also enabled smuggling the books to France where the periodical was forbidden. Provenance: From the collection of Andrew Fletcher of Saltoun, with his name written on either the titlpages or the inside back wrapper of most volumes. Did he buy 2nd & 3rd editions because the 1st was sold out and he wanted to have the series complete? [H. Bots, Jean Leclerc pp. 53-66 in Studies in Seventeenth Century English Literature, History and Bibliography & see Wijngaards, De Bibliothèque Choisie van Jean Le Clerc...

Plot, naturalist & antiquary whose success is to be measured less in his own career than in the influence that his two county histories had on succeeding writers. By eschewing universalism, except in the range of literary reference that he brought to bear on his subjects which were treated in a relentlessly rational manner, Plot created a form of history writing which, by delimiting its subject either to a defined geographical region or to a particular topic, enabled practitioners of the genre to tackle manageable subjects. At the same time, by combining civil and ecclesiastical history with natural history, he introduced an element of novelty and enabled himself to describe a region as a unified whole in which nature and human activity were but two parts of a single environment.

        Historia Plantarum species hactenus editas. . .

      London: Mary Clark for Henry Faithorne, 1686. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Large Folio. 1686-1688. Volumes 1 and 2 (of 3). Large folio (440 x 282 mm). [26], 1-58, (59)-(62), 59-983 [1]; [8], 985-1350 [2] 1351-1944, [36] pp. Title of vol. 1 printed in red and black. Printed on large and thick paper. Contemporary mottled calf, spines with 7 raised bands richly gilt in compartments and with gilt-lettered red morocco labels (hinges repaired, corners bumped and scuffed, some wear to boards and extremities), red-sprinkled edges. Very little browning and occasional very minor spotting to text. Provenance: William Constable (armorial bookplate to front pastedowns); Haskell F. Norman (bookplate to front pastedowns). A fine, internally crisp and clean copy. ----Norman, Norman Library of Science and Medicine 1790 (this copy); Dibner 24; Horblit 87; NLM/Krivatsy 9409; Wing R-394, R-395A. - FIRST EDITION, LARGE PAPER COPY, second state of volume 1. Volumes 1 and 2 of Ray's great work in which he intended to classify all known European plants and attempted to integrate the increasing knowledge of exotic flora. Ray adopted Jungius' morphological system and terminology and includes essays on practical aspects such as propagation and plant diseases, as well as a thorough and systematic survey of plants according to taxonomic principles. Ray's theories paved the way for Linnaeus, but he enjoyed only modest success with Historia plantarum, largely due to the work's unwieldy size, lack of illustrations, and the political upheaval occurring at the time of publication. This in one of only a few known large-paper copies (AE records only two sets that have appeared at auction in the past). The paper in our copy is watermarked with a shield surrounded by a fleur-de-lys (cf. Briquet 995), compared to the cluster-of-grapes watermark in the regular paper-size copies (e.g. Norman 1789). A third volume, not included here, was published 16 years later, in 1704. Very Good.

      Paris, Chez G. de Luyne, 1686. - 16x9,5 cm. 12 Bl., 321 S., 1 Bl. Ldr. der Zeit über 5 Bünden, Rückenvergoldung. - (Rücken berieben und mit kl. Fehlstelle und Anriss). Erstausgabe. Premiere Edition. - Bernard Le Bovier de Fontenelle (1657 Rouen - 1757 Paris), in der Literaturgeschichte schlicht Fontenelle geheissen, zählt neben Pierre Bayle zu den bedeutendsten Wegbereitern der Aufklärung. Er entstammt einer amtsadeligen Juristenfamilie aus Rouen und ist Neffe der Dramatiker Pierre und Thomas Corneille. Nach Studien bei den Jesuiten geht er nach Paris, wo er, von Thomas Corneille eingeführt, als galanter Lyriker, Komödienautor, Operlibrettist, Verfasser eines Briefromans und nicht zuletzt als gesuchter Salon-Animateur reüssiert. In der hier vorliegenden "Histoire des oracles" verarbeitet Fontenelle in elegantem Plauderton einen lateinischen Traktat und verschiedene in antiken Quellen beschriebene Weissagungen und Wunder kritisch und beleuchtet es in einer Weise, die von den Jesuiten sehr richtig als Infragestellung auch biblischer Weissagungen und Wunder verstanden wurde, und landet somit auf den Index. Bis 1725 ist er eine bedeutende Figur im Pariser geistigen und gesellschaftlichen Leben sowie auch in der Politik, ehe sein Ruhm zu verblassen beginnt. Fontanelle verkörpert als erster den dann für die Epoche der Aufklärung so charakteristischen Typ des "philosophe", d.h. eines allseitig interessierten, sowohl belletristische, als auch philosophische und naturwissenschaftliche Werke verfassenden Autors. (Nach Prof. Gert Pinkernell). - Rücken seitlich etwas eingerissen und Block leicht gelockert. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Haagse kermis met Schutterij op het Buitenhof - Daniel Marot, 1686.

      HAAGSE KERMIS MET DE SCHUTTERIJ OP HET BUITENHOFEts met gravure vervaardigd in 1686 door Dani?l Marot te ?s-Gravenhage. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 64,5 x 92 cm.Fraai vogelvluchtgezicht op het Buitenhof in Den Haag met op de achtergrond het Stadhouderlijk Kwartier naast de Hofvijver. Links het Noyelleshuis (tegenwoordig ?Vijverhof?). Het plein staat vol met kraampjes waartussen zich talrijke bezoekers bewegen. Rechts op de voorgrond heerst grote activiteit bij een aantal kramen, waar onder andere wafels worden gebakken.De kermis was uitgegroeid tot ??n groot centrum van vertier, met optredens van koorddansers, acrobaten en gedresseerde dieren, die niet alleen de belangstelling van het volk trokken, maar ook aanzienlijke Hagenaars niet koud lieten.Hier zien we het moment waarop een defil? plaats vindt van de schutterij van de stad. De schutters komen van links op en marcheren tussen de kermiskraampjes door naar het Stadhouderlijk Kwartier, om daar de wapens te presenteren. Vanuit het venster slaan de prins en zijn gevolg het defil? gade. Rechts staat de cavalerie van prins Willem III opgesteld, vlakbij de waterpomp.In de zeventiende eeuw trokken eenmaal per jaar de schutters in volle uitrusting met vaandels en slaande trom door de stad om een centrale plaats de wapens te prensenteren. In 1697 wordt dit gebruik afgeschaft.Toen Willem III in 1689 koning van Engeland was geworden en in Londen verzuchte hij ?te wensen een vogel te zijn, zodat hij over de Noordzee naar Den Haag kon vliegen?. Hij voegde er aan toe hier honderdduizend, ja wel tweehonderdduizend gulden voor over te hebben.De prent is opgedragen aan prins Willem III, wiens wapenschild bovenaan is afgebeeld.Literatuur: Frederik Muller - Nederlandse Historieplaten (1863-70), nr. 2683 (?zeer fraaije en zeldzame plaat?); Charles Dumas ?

        Renatum è mysterio principium philologicum, in quo vocum, signorum et punctorum, tum & literarum maxime ac numerorum origo. Nec non novum variarum rerum specimen etymologicum forma dialogi propalatur

      Typographia Seminarii, 1686. In 8° (166 x 108); 8 cc.nn., 137 pp., 2 cc.nn., 1 c.b., con marca tipografica al frontespizio, capilettera, finalini, una vignetta e numerose illustrazioni nel testo raffiguranti simboli, numeri, lettere e spartiti musicali, il tutto in xilografia. Cartonatura coeva d'attesa. Margine inferiore bianco del frontespizio tagliato e rintegrato con carta antica, probabilmente per eliminare una firma di appartenenza. Molto raro. Edizione originale di questo importante studio di Joannes Petrus Ericus sull'origine delle parole, dei numeri e delle note musicali, scritto in forma di dialogo tra Theopranicus e Philologus. Originario di Eisenach in Turingia e professore di linguistica e geografia all'Università di Venezia, non si conosce altro della sua vita, e la sua opera, a lungo dimenticata, è riscoperta da Umberto Eco che nota come Ericus identifichi nella Monas Hieroglyphica di John Dee la sintesi di tutti gli alfabeti e di tutti i sistemi di numerazione esistenti in ogni lingua. "Attraverso un procedimento indubbiamente complesso - spiega Eco - egli parte dai primi segni zodiacali, li ricompone nella Monade, discute come Adamo abbia dato agli animali un nome adeguato a riprodurre il suono che emettono, ed elabora una fonologia abbastanza attendibile, distinguendo le lettere per sibilatione dentes, quelle per tremulatione linguae, quelle per contractione palati, quelle per compressione labrorum, e per respirazione per nares. Di lì conclude che Adamo ha chiamato con suoni vocalici i volatili, con semivocali i terrestri, con mute i pesci. Da questa fonetica elementare deduce i toni musicali e le sette lettere che tradizionalmente li designano, da cui deriva la figura della Monas Hieroglyphica. Quindi mostra come facendo ruotare (in definitiva, anagrammando visivamente) i segni della Monade, si ottengano tutte le lettere degli alfabeti noti". (La ricerca della lingua perfetta, 1993, pp. 204-205). Gaspari, I, p. 211
