L'opera doveva completare il Thesaurus linguae orientali pubblicato sempre a Vienna nel 1680, ma l?assedio dei turchi rese impossibile la stampa e mise a soqquadro la tipografia che doveva comporre il dizionario (la vicenda viene spiegata nell?introduzione di questo volume). Dopo sette anni il dizionario venne infine completato e pubblicato, e viene considerato anche come opera a se stante (vedi per esempio GBV, Union Catalogue Northern Germany). E il primo grande dizionario per la traduzione dei termini in turco, arabo e persiano.

London - Printed by J. M for George Wells 1687 - Godfrey of Bulloigne or the Recovery of Jerusalem done into English heriocal verse byEdward Fairfax. Together with the Life of the saidGodfrey. Licensed to be reprinted on September 18, 1686 by Ro. L'Estrange. Jerusalem Delivered (La Gerusalemme liberata) is an epic poem by the Italian poet Torquato Tasso first published in 1581, which tells a largely mythified version of the First Crusade in which Catholic knights, led by Godfrey of Bouillon, battle Muslims in order to take Jerusalem. The poem is composed of eight line stanzas grouped into 20 cantos of varying length. The first attempt to translate Gerusalemme liberata was made by Richard Carew, who published his version of the first five cantos as Godfrey of Bulloigne or the Recoverie of Hierusalem in 1594. More significant was the complete rendering by the translator Edward Fairfax (c1580 -1635) which appeared in 1600 and has been acclaimed as one of the finest English verse translations.

Extremely rare first edition of this ephemeral pamphlet documenting the final royal audience of the Siamese embassy to France in 1686/7. The work is a formal request for permission to return to Siam - citing the King of Siam's impatience to hear of the results of the embassy as well as the prevailing winds and the season. Increasingly concerned at the Dutch predominance over Eastern trade, Phra Narai, King of Siam, succeeded in sending the first Siamsese embassy to France in 1684. The present account relates to the second such embassy (June 1686 - March 1687), whose purpose, as noted in the text here, was to secure an eternal alliance between France and Siam. For its part the newly-reorganized French Company of the Orient was delighted by these proposals, securing them valuable trade in spices and textiles. "The mission in Siam became the focus of France's activities in the East during the 1680's. Ayut'ia, King Narai's capital, became a "French Macao" for missionaries and merchants departing for and returning from the stations further to the East." (Lach & Van Kley, III: 252) The arrival of three Siamese ambassadors in northern France in the summer of 1686 caused a great deal of consternation in the popular sphere: illustrations of the embassy were frequently produced for eg almanacs of the time.

London: Printed by J. M. For H. Herringman, 1687. First 8vo Edition of Fairfax’s translation into English of Tasso’s Il Godfredo, Gerusalemme Liberata (The Liberation of Jerusalem). This printing also contains a preface by Robert L’Estrange, a “Life of Godfrey”, an essay on the Allegory of the Poem and an added poem by Robert Gould. 8vo, in a handsome modern binding of full blue morocco, the spine with blind ruled raised bands and lettering in gilt. [xxxii], 655 pp. A very nice copy, internally fresh and crisp and extremely well preserved, modern binding sturdy and attractive with no evidence of wear or use. FIRST OCTAVO EDITION OF THIS IMPORTANT ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF A CORNERSTONE OF ITALIAN LITERATURE. Three titlepage imprints of this edition are known, no priority has ever been given. Fairfax’s translation of Tasso (first published in 1600) was an important step in the introduction of Italian literary masterpieces to English readers. James I is said to have preferred it “above all other English poetry”. Although Fairfax clearly took liberties with Tasso’s words the translation is rich and beautiful. It predates the full translation into English of Dante’s DIVINA COMMEDIA by roughly 120 years Fairfax’s translation of ‘Il Goddredo” is an extremely early example of the English concept of “world literature”.

Contemporary vellum, recased, spine lettered in ink, slightly soiled. Endpapers renewed, paper flaw on title restored without loss, ownership inscription at lower margin, upper margin a little trimmed ?however the copies we have examined all present the same issue-, ownership inscription to lower margin of title page, a fresh copy overall. First edition. Xarque?s work is, along with Ruiz de Montoya?s Conquista Espiritual del Paraguay (1639), one of the most relevant and trustworthy sources of information on the history, progress, reality and state of the Jesuit Missions in modern Northern Argentina, Paraguay and South Brazil at the end of the 17th century. It also provides rich details on the life of the missionaries who dedicated themselves to the evangelization of the Guarani?s and native peoples; this later aspect sheds light on ethnological aspects of one of the great South American civilizations.  His relation was virtually unmatched until 1754 when Lozano published his Historia de la Compañia de Jesus en la Provincia del Paraguay. It contains fresh information from contemporaneous accounts on what was a most successful Jesuit enterprise in South America. Xarque (1609 ? 1691) was a Jesuit Priest and missionary; he dedicated a large portion of his life to the study of the Jesuit Reductions of Paraguay, having written several works on the subject, such as "Vida apostolica del venerable … [Click Below for Full Description]

First title with lower right marginal loss of paper, upper margin with minor loss of paper, away from text, foxing; overall a good unsophisticated copy. Extremely rare Spanish translation of two letters addressed to a missionary posted in China. The first letter is composed of two, both dealing with the doubts expressed by the aforementioned missionary in regards to the path to be followed in his mission; this reply comes from two different unnamed authors, who recommend different ways to continue the apostolic mission, one for instance, making reference to the Chinese’s interest in Astrology, argues the value of astrology towards the knowledge of God; historic references as Yam Quam Sien’s persecution of missionaries are also found. The second deals with a variety of subjects, including Confucius and Confucian philosophy, the names and treatments of Regents and God. Both are exceedingly rare, no copy is registered as having sold at auction, no copy of the Segunda Carta is found in public institutions in Spain, only one complete copy of the first at the Real Academia de la Historia (Madrid, Spain). The titles mention both are translations of French letters, which we have been unable to find. Not in Palau. [Attributes: First Edition]

London: Printed for Randall Taylor, near Stationers Hall. 1687. First English Edition. Hardcover. Modern boards with paper label on upper board bearing titles, Imprimatur leaf present before title page, contents clean and bright, (Wing B4496). , First published in Lille in 1672 this tract is a collection of somewhat absurd accounts of acts of animals and birds which purport to demonstrate the natural world's recognition of and devotion to the Catholic faith. These acts include; "Caterpillars revenge on injury done the H. Sacrament" and "A falcon teaches us the reverence and decency due to places where the H. Sacrament lies, and is kept." The English divine William Clagett wrote the preface and provided the translation for this English edition published in 1687. Clagett's purpose in this was to make Catholicism seem ridiculous and blasphemous and to support the strong anti-Catholic stance he had taken throughout his career and several of Clagett's works would become part of the canon of eighteenth-century anti-Catholicism, being included in Edmund Gibson's 'Preservative against Popery'., 4to , [3] xxiv [2] 45 [1] pp .

KEULEN, Johannes van (1678-1727)
Amsterdam: [1687]. Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring. 21 x 24 inches. Van Keulen's scarce 17th century chart of the Arctic. This rare chart by Van Keulen "delineates the territory surrounding the North West Passage and entrance to Hudson's Bay. Its progenitor is the Joannes van Loon chart first published in 1666 ... This version is drawn directly from Hendrick Doncker's chart published in 1678 as it similarly extends further south and eastwards..." (Burden). The map depicts the southern and western coasts of Greenland, the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the entrance to Hudson's Bay, with Baffin's Bay, Button's Bay, Lancaster Sound named, and Fort Nelson shown (among other toponyms). The cartouche depicts a Greenland native, dressed in a bear skin, shooting a bow and arrow at a mother bear and cubs. The Van Keulen family were chart and instrument makers, and publishers of nautical textbooks, books on sea law, shipbuilding, almanacs and more. Founded by Joannes van Keulen (c.1654- 1715), the firm remained in business for over 200 years. This is the second state, with the privilege line added at the bottom of the cartouche, but with the engraver's error with Newfoundland reading "Teppa Nova."

BIZOT (Pierre)
A Paris Chez Daniel Horthemels Libraire, 1687. FIRST EDITION. Folio, 370 x 235 mms., pp. [xiv], 317 [318 blank, 319 - 331 Index, 332 - 333 Errata and Privilege, 334 blank], engraved title-page (by S. La Clercinu Lalouette after Sébastien Le Clerc) preceding letter-press title-page, 12 full-page engraved plates, engraved vignettes in text, and culs de lampe, all finely executed, contemporary calf, gilt spine; paper a bit browned, binding dried and worn, spine faded, corners and extremities worn, lacks label, but a firm binding with the armorial bookplate of Baron John Rolle (1751 - 1842), on the front paste-down end-paper. The French numismatist Pierre Bizot (1630 - 1696) made his reputation with this on the history of coins and medals of the Dutch Republic. He published a second part in 1690, but it only appeared in the Dutch editions, the first of which was published in that year. The coins and medals which he illustrates were themselves produced between 1566 and 1680. In the same year Bizot also published Theatre d'honneur des héros qui out sacrificé leurs vies pour la Republique de Hollande, o'u l'on voit gravez, sur le suivre, les Tombeaux magnifigues qui ont été en leur honneur et leurs épitaphes. Many of the engraved illustrations celebrate great moments in Dutch history. For example, in 1590, a turfship was the instrument by which the Dutch recaptured the port city of Breda from the Spanish, and Bizot records the feat in this work, with engravings (p. 63) of the medals struck.

LEEUWENHOEK, A. VAN.
Lugduni Batavorum, typis Cornelii Boutesteyn, Bibliopolae, 1687. 4to (200 x 160mm). pp. (6), 64 (mispaged 58); 260 (mispaged 258), with an engraved frontispiece after a drawing by Romeyn de Hooghe, 11 (some folding) engraved plates and 82 text engravings, as well as one woodcut on page 31 of part 2. (Bound up with:) Continuatio Epistolarum, datarum ad longe Celeberrimam Regiam Societatem Londinensem. Lugduni Batavorum, apud Cornelium Boutestein, Bibliopolam, 1689. pp. (8), 124, with 10 (some folding) engraved plates and 2 text engravings. Contemporary vellum. A very interesting association copy from the library of Karl Ernst von Baer. Our copy agrees with the collation of Dobell no. 22 and 24. The 'Anatomia seu interiora rerum' contains the following letters 28-31, 34-36, 38, 42-52 and the 'Continuatio Epistolarum' letters 53-60. All letters are in the first issue of the first Latin edition apart from letters 38, 42, and 43 which are in the second issue. The first issue of these letters was published in 1685 (see Dobell 21) and is excessively rare and Dobell comments that that his copy of the first issue is the only one he has seen. Letters 32, 33, 37, 39, 40, 41 were published as late as 1695. Leeuwenhoek published 165 letters numbered 28-146 and I-XLVI, the first 27 were not published. Anthonie van Leeuwenhoek's letters, sent to the Royal Society of London or to its secretary Robert Hooke, were written in Dutch, and their first printing, from 1673 on, in the Philosophical Transactions, was in translation and in an abridged form. In 1684 the first letters in unabridged for … [Click Below for Full Description]

TABERNAEMONTANUS, J.T.
samt ihren Namen in mancherley Sprachen/ beschrieben: Desgleichen auch/ wie dieselbige in allerhand Kranckheiten/ beyde der Menschen und des Viehs ... durch Casparum Bauhinum mit vielen neuen Figuren ... zum Andern durch Hieronymum Bauhinum mit sehr nutzlichen Marginalien, Synonimis, neuen Registeren und anderem vermehrt. Basel, Joh. Ludwig König/ und Brandmyllern, 1687. Folio. 3 parts (bound in one). pp. (12), 1-663, (5), 665-1529, (96, register), with an engraved title, a title printed in red and black and 2472 woodcuts. Contemporary blind-tooled pigskin over wooden boards, clasps gone. Nissen BBI, 1931. A fine complete copy in an impressive contemporary binding of the second enlarged edition to be edited by Caspar and Jean Bauhin. The first enlarged edition edited by Caspar and Jean Bauhin appeared in Basel in 1664 and several hundred new woodcuts were included. The very rare first edition was published in 2 volumes from 1588-1591. Jacob Dietrich von Bergzabern (?1520-1590), better known as Tabernaemontanus, was a pupil of Otto Brunfels and Jerome Bock. "The 'Kreuterbuch' is a massive and fully illustrated work, with some attractive woodcut decorations; the title-page states that 3000 plants are described. Its lasting popularity is attested by the fact that a version appeared at as late a date as 1731. The figures are for the most part not original, but are reproduced from Bock, Fuchs, Mattioli, Dodoens, de l'Écluse and de l'Obel ..." (Arber p. 76). Apart from some very slightbrowning, small old paper repair to the engraved title and small wormhole at the last 5 leaves o … [Click Below for Full Description]
