        Théâtre de la Turquie où sont representées les choses les plus remarquable EDITION ORIGINALE

      à Paris: Chez jacques Le Febvre, 1688. Fine. Chez jacques Le Febvre, à Paris 1688, In-4 (18x25,5cm), (20) 558pp. (11), relié. - Original French edition. The author wrote this book in Italian and he published in Milan in 1680, he made himself the translation. Binding in full brown calf. Back with nerves decorated. As an exhibit in brown leather. Head cover skillfully restored and re-gilded. Title Page ascent, and the first warning page. Adhesive discharges between the cover page and the title page. Good fresh paper except on the pages of the Epistle. Nice copy. The author, a Capuchin monk named Justinian Tours (it will take another pen name) lived a long time in the Middle East, and made many trips in the Turkish provinces. The book proposes to set the table on the decadence of the Turkish Empire and its disorders. If the first chapters of the Mohammedan religion in the discrediting, the entire book addresses topics most diverse manners and customs, but each chapter is a demonstration to reduce the Turks to a godless people as ignorant and immoral . - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale française. L'auteur écrivit cet ouvrage en italien et le fit paraître à Milan en 1680, il en fit lui-même la traduction. Reliure en plein veau brun. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin brun. Coiffe de tête adroitement restaurée et redorée. Page de titre remontée, ainsi que la première page de l'avertissement. Décharges d'adhésif entre la page de garde et la page de titre. Bonne fraîcheur du papier, excepté sur les pages de l'épître. Bel exemplaire. L'auteur, un moine capucin du nom de Justinien de Tours (il prendra un autre nom de plume) résida longtemps au Moyen-Orient, et fit de nombreux voyages au sein des provinces turques. L'ouvrage se propose d'établir le tableau de la décadence de l'empire turc et de ses désordres. Si les premiers chapitres traitent de la religion mahométane en la discréditant, l'ensemble du livre aborde les sujets de mœurs et coutumes les plus variés, mais chaque chapitre est une démonstration visant à réduire les Turcs à un peuple impie et immoral autant qu'ignorant.

        Recueil de Veues des Plus Beaux Lieux de France

      1688. PERELLE, Gabriel, Adam and Nicholas. Recueil de Veues des Plus Beaux Lieux de France. Comprised of seven parts in one volume, each part with individual title. Illustrated with a total 281 etched and/or engraved plates on 253 leaves, comprising 267 views and 14 plans and/or maps (3 being large folding). Oblong folio, 295 x 382 mm, bound in contemporary French mottled calf, with intricate gilt-stamped floral ornaments in spine compartments, red leather title label. [Paris: Chez Nicolas Langlois, ca. 1688]. |~||~||~||~||~| Early impressions of the finest, most complete series of etched views to document French gardens and châteaux. A comparable or more authentic portrayal of seventeenth-century French architecture and garden design does not exist. Of the total 267 etched and/or engraved views, over 150 concentrate specifically on seventeenth-century French landscapes and garden designs. These views represent the gardens in their original splendour, the landscape populated with elegant figures in contemporary costume. Regrettably, several of the private châteaux and most of the accompanying gardens no longer exist. The contents of the volume begins with etched views of Parisian edifices, city portals, fountains, gardens and monumental buildings such as the Louvre, Palais Royal, Palais du Luxembourg, L'Hotel de Ville, etc. Then a number of the surrounding châteaux and their estates are pictured, including Versailles (which we see literally rise before our eyes as the plates were executed over a period of several years while the palace and gardens were under construction), Vincennes, Chantilly, St. Cloud and Fontainebleau, plus sixteen views of Rome and its environs including the gardens of Pamphili and Tivoli. Most importantly, this set is comprised of early Nicolas Langlois (1640-1703) impressions of these grand plates. Gabriel Perelle (1595-1677) studied drawing with Daniel Rabel, official artist of the court of Henry III, and then Perelle entered the atelier of the French painter Simon Vouet. Perelle had two sons, Nicolas Perelle (born 1631) and Adam Perelle (1640-1695). The engraved work by the three Perelles is so similar in style that their work is often signed: "Fait par Perelle" as it frequently is in the present album.. The majority of impressions are sharp and dark. A few tears repaired, a three inch crack to bupper hinge, however still strong and perfectly intact. Overall, an exceptional copy. Fowler 245. Brunet IV, 494. Berlin Katalog 2483. See: Millard I, 136 & 137.

Chez Charles de Sercy, Paris 1688, in-4 (20,5x28cm), (16) 427 pp. [11pp.] 419-445pp., relié. - Third edition published in initialisme and illustrated 66 boards. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Seconde édition, après l'originale de 1660, parue sous initialisme et illustrée de 66 planches gravées sur bois, dont plusieurs dépliantes. Les planches sont comprises dans la pagination. Est relié à la suite, et avec une pagination autonome, le Traité très-utile de la Chasse, dont la première édition remonte à 1603, et dont la présence est attestée dans bon nombre d'exemplaires. Page de titre en rouge et noir. Bandeau aux armes de François d'Aix de la Chaise, plus connu sous le nom de Père-Lachaise, confesseur du roi. Exemplaire aux armes non identifiées d'un chevalier écartelées aux 1 et 4 d'or au dragon et aux 2 et 3 d'azur aux deux veaux. Reliure de l'époque en pleine basane brune. Dos à cinq nerfs orné de caissons richements ornés, ainsi que d'une pièce de maroquin rouge. Plats frappés en leur centre d'armoiries. Roulette dorée sur les coupes. Toutes tranches rouges. Coiffes, coins et nerfs très habilement restaurés. Quelques restaurations comblent une galerie de ver en marge en fin de volume. Quelques renforcements de papier au verso de certaines planches dépliantes. Destiné, comme le précise le titre, "à toutes personnes qui font leur séjour à la campagne", ce livre "curieux et récréatif" écrit par un moine de l'abbaye de Grandmont est en quelque sorte un manuel du parfait piégeur très abondamment illustré. Le livre est divisé en cinq parties : la première concerne la confection des filets destinés à capturer les "oiseaux, les bestes et les poissons" ; le second s'attarde sur la prise des "oiseaux non passagers" (perdrix, faisans, poules, grives...) ; le troisième livre s'intéresse à la chasse aux bécasses, canards et autres "oiseaux passagers" ; le quatrième traite de la capture de bêtes (lièvres, lapins, furet, blaireaux, renards, loups...)  par des "filets, colets, lacets, pièges et autres machines" ; la dernière partie de l'ouvrage concerne la pêche des poissons, tant dans les étangs que dans les rivières grâce à des filets, hameçons, appâts et autres machines.

        A rare twice-signed book owned by Sam Houston: Hume's history of England during the reign of Elizabeth I ? an instructive and inspirational story that would serve him well during Texas' struggle for independence

      n.p., n.d.. 8vo.. "David Hume, The History of England from the Invasion of Julius Cæsar to the Revolution in 1688. (New York: Inskeep & Bradford & Boston: William McIlhenney, 1810) Vol. 4, vi, 567 pages, 8vo, bound in contemporary marbled boards with gilt-titled spine. Boldly signed, ""Sam Houston"" on the front free endpaper, and again with his initials ""S.H."" on the front pastedown together with the signature of the previous owner, Tennessee judge John W. Overton (1766-1833), ""John W. Overton"" on the top of the front free endpaper with his bookplate affixed to the front pastedown. Signature page and several endpapers moderately toned and dampstained, expertly restored and rebound with the original leather boards and new spine which retains the original spine label. Housed in a beautiful custom clamshell case in red, white and blue with the seal of the Republic of Texas stamped in gilt and a ribbed, gilt-titled spine.The present volume covers the period 1547-1603, a period dominated by the reign of Elizabeth. Her reign marked the beginning of England's rise to the penultimate world power by the mid-eighteenth century. Houston must have found the story of the English defeat of the Spanish Armada inspirational, especially following Texas' seemingly unlikely victory over the more numerous and powerful Mexican army in the 1830s. The previous owner of the volume, John W. Overton, was a Tennessee plantation owner and judge, as well as an advisor to Andrew Jackson. In 1818, Houston lived in Nashville where he took a position as a local prosecutor. It appears that Overton obtained this volume the same year, and sometime prior to Houston's departure for Texas in 1832, gave it to Houston. Books owned by Houston are extremely rare. We are aware of only one other volume signed and owned by Houston ever to appear in the market in the last 30 years, and that fetched $35,000."

Indeed, his next work, Parliamentum pacificum, argued strongly in its favour, although it appeared anonymously as ‘[b]y a True Protestant and no Dissenter’. It was approved by the earl of Sunderland on 15 February 1688 and the king paid for 20,000 copies of it to be produced. A second English edition appeared; it was translated into French and Dutch and elicited three replies in Dutch alone. Gilbert Burnet replied to it in English, having been strongly criticized within it. Northleigh replied in turn in Natural Allegiance (which ran to more than 100 pages) and also in Dr Burnet's Reflections Answered (July 1688), but again anonymously. The revolution must have come as a severe blow to Northleigh. He published nothing else for fourteen years’ (ODNB). (ESTC R16029, Huntington and Berlin only; COPAC adds C, O, E, G and Leeds)

        James Steuarts answer to a letter writ by Mijn Heer Fagel, prisoner to the states of Holland and West-Frisland concerning the repeal of the penal laws and tests

      [Edinburgh] : London, printed and re-printed in Edinburgh: by John Reid, 1688. First Edinburgh Edition. 8vo. 39 pp. Signatures: A-E4, COMPLETE. Edges untrimmed (somewhat browned). Unobtrusive blindstamp on first and last leaves. Bound in recent quarter calf antique (Trevor Lloyd) THE REPEAL OF THE PENAL LAWS AND TEST ACTS DURING THE GLORIOUS REVOLUTION. Whereas William of Orange supported repealing the Penal Laws, but opposed the repeal of the Test Acts, his predecessor James sought to repeal the Penal Laws AND the Test Acts, thereby allowing Catholics the right to hold public office. This is the rare first Edinburgh edition; ESTC lists only BL and NLS in the United Kingdom, and Huntington and Univ. of Illinois in the United States. James Stewart (1635-1713) was one of the leading Scottish radicals in the revolutionary movement. He was offered a pardon by James II, in return for which he sought to persuade his colleagues to return from exile in Holland. In the present pamphlet Stewart replies to a letter written by Gaspar Fagel (1634-1688) describing William's position on the repeal of the Penal Laws, the repeal of the Test Acts, and of religious toleration ("Letter writ by Mijn Heer Fagel, pensioner of Holland, to Mr. James Stewart, advocate"). "Fagel's letter provoked numerous replies and defences, and clearly established the international framework for the debate on toleration. The radical exiles in Holland, who were divided among themselves on the issue of support for, or opposition to, James' toleration policy, were placed directly in the midst of a propaganda and power struggle between James II and William, and ultimately between England and Holland. In very concrete and practical terms, the exiles' position on the issue of toleration was tied to their willingness to accept a pardon from James and return to Britain, as an endorsement of Stewart's claim that all was well there, or to remain in Holland and continue their fight against James, counting on the support and encouragement of William" (SOURCE: Richard Ashcraft, "Revolutionary Politics and Locke's Two Treatises of Government" p. 486). Ours is apparently the only copy currently on the market; no copies has appeared at auction in at least 30 years. Aldis 2821. Wing S5534.

Some meaningful foxing, especially in margins, wide margins, some wear at top and bottom of centerfold, mild creasing, lower left corner missing, but well away from map; strong impression. Robert De Vaugondy (1688-1766) was one of the leading cartographers in 18th century France. This map illustrates the African continent around 1756. Reflecting the available knowledge at the time, the map doesn't show as much detail in some portions of the interior, and tribal names are used in some areas. However, according to Norwich, the lakes and rivers appear quite accurate. The cartouche on this map illustrates a native woman reclining between two palm trees with a lion at her feet. Norwich 94.

        The Royal Commentaries of Peru

      1688. GARCILASO DE LA VEGA. The Royal Commentaries of Peru... Illustrated with sculptures. Written originally in Spanish, by the Inca Garcilasso de la Vega, and rendered into English, by Sir Paul Rycaut, Kt. viii, 1019, [9] pp. (pages 23-26 omitted in numbering). With an engraved portrait of the translator and 10 full-page engraved plates. Folio, bound in contemporary English mottled calf, spine gilt, recent red label. London: Miles Flesher for Jacob Tonson, 1688.|~| |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition in English. Garcilaso de la Vega's most important work, The Royal Commentaries of Peru, is a valuable source of information about the conquest of Peru and the lives and legends of the Inca. Garcilaso (1539-1617) was the son of the Spanish conqueror, Sebastian Garcilaso de la Vega y Vargas, who had married an Inca princess named Chimpa Ocllo, the grand-daughter of the great Tupac Yupanqui, the last of the Incas. "The Inca mother taught her son the language of the ancient inhabitants of Peru, and suggested to him the idea of writing a history of these people. For this purpose, Garcilaso travelled over the entire empire of the Incas, got as much information suitable for his purpose as he could gather from both the natives and the new colonists, and consulted the few remaining monuments of that race... As a historian of Peru and its people, Garcilaso enjoyed singular advantages, for his mother, an Inca princess and her relations told him everything concerning their ancestors, omitting nothing, as they considered him one of their race. On the other hand, his father, who was the Governor of Cuzco, was on intimate terms with many of the conquerors, so that from them the historian heard the accounts of their deeds. Garcilaso, therefore, was in a position to get information at first hand from both the natives and their conquerors. His work is of great historic value, as it constitutes practically the only document we possess of the ancient civilization of Peru" (Catholic Encyclopedia). The work is arranged in two parts: the first concerns the original Incas, their religions, laws and government, and their reigns and conquests. The second part describes the manner by which the Incan empire was conquered by the Spaniards; it also relates the civil wars between the Piçarrists and the Almagrians. This folio volume contains numerous engravings which suggest admiration for Incan achievements, while condemning the Spanish destruction of Incan civilization. There are artistic renderings of Cuzco, Pizarro's arrival in Peru (which imitates numerous other depictions of initial encounters between Europeans and American natives), a vision of Spanish cruelty during their attack on Cuzco, the death of Atahualpa (while the Spaniards look on, innocently) and more. This is the first English translation of Garcilaso's Comentarios reales de los Incas (Part 1 of the Spanish original was first printed at Lisbon in 1608 (i.e. 1609); pt. 2 was first printed at Cordova in 1616). "... [Rycaut] had a very slight knowledge of the Spanish language and he did not scruple to make wild guesses at the meaning of sentences, and to omit whole chapters. Thus he only gives fourteen out of the twenty-six chapters in the first book, and sixteen out of the twenty-six in the second" (C.S. Markham's introduction to the First part of the Royal commentaries, 1869-71, v. 1, p. xvi). Of this first English edition, two other issues are known (priority indeterminate): one listing "C. Wilkinson" as publisher, the other "S. Heyrick." This copy formed part of the notable library of Arthur St. Leger, 1st Viscount of Doneraile and 1st Baron on Kilmayden, descendant of the Anglo-Norman house of St. Leger, and the owner of the fabulous estate at Doneraile Court (County Cork). Doneraile (d. 1727) was an active Freemason; his daughter was discovered witnessing a secret Freemason initiation ceremony in the Doneraile Library (over which her father was preciding). All present decided that the proceedings must remain secret; consequently the young woman herself was immediately initiated as a Freemason, and thus became one of only three female Freemasons in history.
