EXQUEMELIN, Alexandre Olivier
1686 1ed Buccaneers in America Pirates of Caribbean Exquemelin Illustrated “Go tell the King of England, go tell him thus from me, Though he reigns king o’er all the land, I will reign king at sea!” – Exquemelin, History of the Buccaneers An incredible History of Pirates and Buccaneers of the Caribbean by Exquemelin, complete with illustrations! This book of sea adventures talks of shipwrecks, sea battles, and Spanish buccaneers in the Americas, Indies, and South Sea. In 1666, Exquemelin set sail toward the Antilles when his ship was attacked by pirates headed for Tortuga. He, himself, eventually became a pirate and participated in raids and lootings. This incredible first French edition describes many of Exquemelin’s stories and includes highly desirable illustrations of maps and scenes of sailing. Augmented and edited by Journel, this book is known to be responsible for colloquializing the term ‘buccaneer’. From Sabin: First French edition, of extreme rarity, translated from the Spanish. The author’s name is rather singularly changed.

STACY, MAHLON)
1686. (STACY, MAHLON). Deed from George Porter of Burlington, batchelor, to James Antram, planter, 24 May 1686. Conveying 150 acres in the First or Yorkshire Tenth. Vellum. 11 x 18 in. Signed by Porter, but his first name, and probably a wax seal, has been cut from the bottom edge of the document. On the verso the document is witnessed by John Lambert, Ruth Emley, and Nathaniell Richards. Adjacent to the witnesses' signatures is a large "Consented to, & Approved by us, William Emley, Mahlon Stacye." Folded, a few tiny holes, but other than the partly clipped signature, very good. Unrecorded. Mahlon Stacy was a Yorkshire Quaker and one of five Yorkshiremen who purchased a "tenth" of West New Jersey (actually, one ninetieth of ninety one hundredths) from William Penn, Gawen Lawrie, Nicholas Lucas, and Edward Byllynge, with the goal of creating a Yorkshire Friends settlement in America. In 1678 Stacy sailed for America, arriving at what is now Burlington in December 1678--the first ship ever to sail that far up Delaware Bay. In the spring of 1679 Stacy erected a house and grist mill at the "Falls of the Delaware, along the Assanpink Creek, and was the first white man to settle that far up the Delaware River. The small settlement that Stacy began would eventually become the town of Trenton. The is only the second Mahlon Stacy document we have handled in forty-five years. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Difetti al dorso.Seconda edizione, con "nuove additioni" dell'autore, di questo importante lavoro divulgativo. L'autore, Vitale Giordani, fu uno dei più apprezzati matematici della sua epoca. Nato a Bitonto dovette allontanarsene dopo aver ammazzato il cognato, che secondo la tradizione lo aveva definito "pigro". A Roma la decisione, piuttosto tarda per l'epoca (aveva 28 anni) di dedicarsi alla matematica: Giordani insegna per qualche tempo presso Cristina di Svezia, e poi all'Accademia di Francia, a Roma. Nel 1685 ottiene la cattedra di matematica alla Sapienza ed è proprio l'anno dopo che il suo volume viene ristampato, nella presente edizione riveduta e aumentata (l'edizione originale, dalla stessa tipografia, era dell'80).Second edition, with "nuove additioni", of this important educational work. The author, Vitale Giordani, was one of the most appreciated mathematicians in his generation. Born in Bitonto, he had to emigrate to Rome after having killed his brother in law. In Rome he decided to devote himself to mathematics: in 1685 Giordani obtained the mathematics chair at Rome university, and a year later his volume was reprinted and increased in this very edition (the first one, from the same printer, had been published on 1680) [Attributes: First Edition]

In all 3 pp. Johnson Eliot (1815-1888) graduated from Columbian College (now George Washington University) medical school in 1842. Having been excluded from practice at the Washington Infirmary, he was one of four founders of the Georgetown Medical School, which opened in 1851.

Chardin, Jean.
Journal du voyage du Chevalier Chardin en Perse & aux Indes Orientales, par la Mer Noire & par la Colchide. Premiere Partie, qui contient Le Voyage de Paris à Ispahan. Seltene erste Ausgabe eines Klassikers der Persien-Literatur. – Henze I, 558; Cox I, 250; Schwab 87; vgl. Dinse 445 (Ausg. Amsterdam 1686); vgl. NY Public Library 11 und Wilson 40 (beide: engl. Ausg., London 1686) – Jean Chardins (1643 - 1713) entscheidende Reise nach Persien startete im Jahr 1671/72. Ausgangspunkt war das heutige Izmir, über Istanbul - das damalige Konstantinopel - und das Schwarze Meer gelangte er nach Migrelien, einer Landschaft im Westen Georgiens, angrenzend an Abchasien am Schwarzen Meer gelegen. Über Tiflis und Eriwan ging es weiter in das Gebiet der heutigen autonomen Republik Nachitschewan, einer Exklave Aserbaidschans, die vom Iran, Armenien und einem kurzen Grenzabschnitt der Türkei umschlossen wird. Nächste Etappen waren die Städte Täbris, Saweh und Ghom, im Norden des heutigen Irans. Von dort ging es ins zentrale Hochland nach Kaschan und schließlich nach Isfahan. Nach einem Aufenthalt in Persien in den Jahren 1665 - 67 waren die Erkenntnisse der oben geschilderten Reise die Grundlage für diesen ersten Teil der Reisebeschreibungen von Paris nach Isfahan, der erst in den Auflagen 1711 und 1735 Ergänzungen und seinen Abschluß erfuhr. Chardins Informationen sind weitreichend: sie umfassen landeskundliche Themen, die Geschichte, die Wissenschaften und Künste, die Religion, das Gewerbe und den Handel, Fauna und Flora, das Klima, Beschreibungen einzelner Städte und Siedlungen und die Herrschaftsverhältnisse. Er galt als einer der \"genausten Kenner Persiens in seinem Jahrhundert\", der \"von allen Reisenden des 17. Jahrhunderts die reichsten Mitteilungen\" ausbreitete (Henze 557), vor allem, weil er nicht den üblichen Reiserouten folgte (so Cox a.a.O.). - Interessant ist, dass Chardin nicht nur als Forscher die von ihm aufgesuchten Länder bereiste: Schah Abbas II ernannte ihn
