        Courte & solide histoire de la fondation des ordres religieux. Avec les figures de leurs habits.

      Amsterdam, Adriaan Schoonebeek, 1688 - 12mo. [4]f including engraved allegorical frontispiece + 73 + [1 blank + 4]f. 73 engraved plates included in collation. Vignettes on title and first page of text which also has a grotesque initial made up of 2 monks. Contemporary calf, re-hinged. A historical guide to the principal male religious orders compiled and finely illustrated with costume plates by a pupil of Romeyn de Hooghe. Each engraving is a portrait of a member of a different religious order whose habit is carefully shaded to indicate its various colours for the interest of the reader and as an aid for artists. In his preface the compiler points to the lack of literature with precise information on the religious orders and their dress, stating that he has added the arms of each order to his image of the individual member portrayed, where ever he was able to trace them. The last plate represents a specimen dress only marked with shades in order to distinguish between colours. Schoonebeek, a highly accomplished engraver, was a pupil of Romeyn de Hooghe from 1676 to 1679. He gave lessons in etching to Peter the Great during his stay at Amsterdam in 1698, and later accompanied him to Moscow, where he spent his final years teaching a number of pupils.

        Histoire des Avanturiers,

      Paris: Jacques Le Febure, , 1688. qui se sont signalez dans les Indes, contenant ce qu'ils ont fait de plus remarquable depuis vingt annees. 2 volumes bound in one, small octavo. (157 × 97 mm). Contemporary mottled sheep trade binding, raised bands to the spine, double fillet panel containing floral device gilt to the compartments. Engraved general title, 3 folding maps, and 4 illustrations to the text, 3 of them full-page. Light browning throughout, occasional marginal stains, mild damp-staining to the last few leaves, worming to the upper portion of one of the maps, costing three letters, professionally repaired with letters provided in MS facsimile, slightly rubbed, joints, head- and tail-cap skilfully restored, new label. Second French edition. Sabin describes the first French edition, published two years previously to this, as "of extreme rarity". Translated by Frontignières, who utilized the Spanish edition of 1681 but made substantial revisions and additions, possibly in consultation with Exquemelin's manuscript. A highly popular and influential account of pirates in the Caribbean, Hill says of Exquemelin that he was "the inspiration for a vast number of novels, plays, and imaginary voyages." A Huguenot native to Honfleur, Exquemelin left France in 1666 as an indentured servant bound for the Antilles. On Tortuga, he was sold to a nefarious government officer, and later resold to a doctor who taught him some of the skills of a barber-surgeon, offered Exquemelin his freedom for a price, and gave him a few surgical tools. By the end of the 1660's, Exquemelin became a flibustier, or privateer. He probably served with Jean-David Nau l'Olonnais, and participated in the raid of Maracaibo in 1669. He later took part in Henry Morgan's sack of Panama in 1670-71. Soon thereafter, Exquemelin abandoned piracy, returned to Europe, and studied medicine in Amsterdam, where he completed this account. He later returned to America several times as a ship's surgeon aboard Dutch and Spanish vessels. He writes in considerable detail about raids upon various settlements throughout the West Indies, fights with Indians, encounters with other pirates, and acts of torture committed by the marauding bands upon the region's inhabitants. Although some of his dates are questionable, Exquemelin's account is considered among the most reliable of the period.

        Digressiones Justinianeae In Partes Duas, Quarum Altera Nova,.

      1688 - Elegant Essays on Roman Law by Noted Dutch Jurist Huber, Ulrich [1636-1694]. Digressiones Justinianeae: In Partes Duas, Quarum Altera Nova, Distinctae: Quibus Varia & Imprimis Humaniora Juris Continentur: Insertus Est De Jure in Re & Ad Rem Quod Dicitur Tractatus: & Adjecta De Ratione Discendi Atque Docendi Juris Diatribe, Per Modum Dialogi: Cum Indice Rerum & Verborum. Franeker: Apud Johannem Gyselaar, Henricum Amama, & Zachariam Taedama, 1688. [xxx], 632 [i.e. 528], [4], 63, [17] pp. Each section preceded by divisional title page. Quarto (7-3/4" x 6"). Contemporary vellum, early hand-lettered title to spine. Light soiling, spine somewhat darkened, corners and spine ends bumped, vellum just beginning to crack through pastedowns, text block just beginning to detach, but still quite secure, a few gatherings slightly loose. Title page printed in red and black. Large woodcut printer device to title page, woodcut head-pieces, tail-pieces and decorated initials. Ex-library. Bookplate to front pastedown, small stamps and markings to endleaves and verso of title page. A solid copy. * Third edition, and the final authorial edition. With indexes. Huber was a well-known Dutch jurist and professor at the Universities of Franeker, Utrecht and Leyden. He was also a judge in Friesland and the author of numerous legal works on Roman and Roman-Dutch law. He was as important in his day as Grotius, and his work remains influential in South Africa. First published in 1664, Digressiones Justinianeae went through eight editions, the final in 1721. More an essay collection than a treatise, it collects his thoughts on a variety of Roman law topics. He also discusses legal pedagogy and the work of his contemporaries and near-contemporaries, such as Grotius and Hobbes. These latter sections are especially interesting because they show what a learned contemporary thought of their work when it was new. They are similar in many regards to reviews in learned journals or publications like the New York Review of Books. Dekkers, Bibliotheca Belgica Juridica 86 (4).

        Les caracteres de Theophraste traduits du grec : avec les caracteres ou les moeurs de ce siecle.

      Chez Etienne Michallet 1688 - - Chez Etienne Michallet, A Paris 1688, in 12 (9,5x16,5cm), (58) 308pp., Un Vol. relié. - Mention de seconde édition. Cette édition suit la première de quelques mois, elle est en tout point semblable hormis quelques corrections. Elle est à l'adresse de la rue de l'image Saint Paul. « La seconde édition, également impr. en 1688 n'offre que quelques légers changements, et la troisième, sous la même date, n'est qu'une simple réimpression de la seconde.' (Brunet III, 720). Voir Tchermerzine VIII. Plein veau raciné d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Un petit manque en pied. L'écriture des Caractères commence dès 1670, mais c'est seulement après 17 ans de travail que La Bruyère se décide à publier les Caractères , il est pourtant si peu sûr du succès qu'il donne la précellence à sa traduction des Caractères de Théophraste dans les permières éditions et il faudra attendre la cinquième pour que s'affirme l'oeuvre des Caractères devant celle de Théophraste, et qu'enfin La bruyère signe l'édition de son nom.

        Manuscript document and indenture, June 19, 1688, Newtown, Queens County, Long Island, New York, an Agreement between Gorsham Moore, Samuel Moore, Joseph Moore, John Moore and Content Titus

      Manuscript Document Signed. One page, edges untrimmed. 12.25" x 8". Newtown, Queens County, Long Island, New York. June 19, 1688. Document Signed by Gorsham Moore, Samuel Moore, Joseph Moore, Content Titus, etc. with their black wax seals. Also signed and affirmed by Lambert Woodhull and Daniell Phillips, clerk. Verso with slightly over ten lines of text docketed by Daniell Phillips, signed again by Samuel Moore and Content Titus. Old fold lines, small paper defects, else very good to near fine. Content Titus (1643-1730) was one of the first three elders of the First Presbyterian Church of Newtown (one of the oldest churches in Queens) and a prominent citizen of this Long Island community. On several occasions Titus was sent to the island of Jamaica to protest a tax forced upon Newtown. Titus lived first in Oyster Bay, then Huntington, and then moved to Newtown in 1672 where he purportedly married Rev. John Moore's daughter, Elizabeth Moore. This colonial New York manuscript document shows Content Titus as purchaser of a portion of land once owned by Rev. John Moore, and shows the four sons of the reverend, his heirs, as recipients of an award of property previously held by their father. The agreement also shows that all five men were to receive equal lot shares. A very nice 17th Century American document pertaining to Newtown [a.k.a. New Town and Newtowne] Long Island, and some of its earlier illustrious citizens. .

      Johann Hofmann, Nurenberg 1688 - 4to. [1] 200 [4] + 400 [8] pp. Bound in leather with gold lettering on spine. Raised bands on spine. Illustrated with 38 (complete in 39) copper - engraved plates and maps. Double-paged 21, (of which 2 were are hand-colored.) Frontispiece and 8 full page plates, (of which one has extra folds.) Seven double-page copper - engraved maps, (3 of which have extra folds) In addition there are 34 in page text engravings, (4 of which are crudely hand-colored.) This is a copy of the German translation by Jacob von Meursen, who engraved the copperplates, which were compiled and modified from earlier printed works. Text in double column. The many illustrations are truly gorgeous, depicting: landscapes, architecture, desert scenes, religious and historical events and much more, making this a famous and well known work. Olfert Dapper (1635 - 1689) was a Dutch physician, writer and expert on Africa. He was born in Amsterdam around 1635. In May 1658, he enrolled at Utrecht University and two years later was signing himself "doctor medicinæ," although there is no evidence that he ever received any medical training. In 1663, he published a historical description of Amsterdam. In 1665 he published a Dutch translation of the works of Herodotus. With the increased interest in exploration and foreign cultures, a flourishing trade in travel books developed in Holland in the mid 17th Century. Following this trend, Dapper was just over thirty when he embarked on the geographic and ethnographic research that was to occupy him for the rest of his life. He threw himself into a vast undertaking, tackling first Africa (1668), then China (1670), Persia (1672) and the Middle East (1680). His books became well known in his own time, with translations rapidly appearing in English, French and German. In 1983 a museum devoted to him was opened in Paris, Musée Dapper. Dapper never went to the exotic destinations about which he wrote. Largely due to his utilization of the accounts of Jesuit missionaries and explorers, Dapper steered clear from making value judgments about the societies he described. He avoided ethnocentric connotations and became the first person to adopt an interdisciplinary approach, weaving together the separate threads of geography, economics, politics, medicine, social life and customs. Unlike some of his contemporaries, Dapper produced a genuine work for posterity, not just a compendium of exotic curiosities. Head and foot of spine missing, cracking to spine, front and rear boards detached but present. 1 full page plate missing. Browning, foxing and water staining throughout, but text and illustrations are mostly unaffected. Marginal pencil marks atop a number of the plates, not effecting illustrations. Some repairs with white binders tape on the verso of the double page fold out map of Terra Sancta, (The Holy Land) and to some of the double-page fold out plates. Exterior in poor, interior in overall fair condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

L'opera, la cui editio princeps fu impressa da Aldo Manuzio nel 1502, è di straordinaria importanza per la citazione di brani di opere andate perdute e per la mole di informazioni che essa offre, oltre che sulla geografia, sulla mitologia e i culti religiosi della Gracia antica.

Rellatãose as grandezas, narrãose as entradas Referemse as festividades que se celebrarão na insigne Cidade e Corte de Lisboa, desde 11 de agosto athe 25 de Outubro de 1687. Cujas Descripções. Dedica ao Senhor Jeronimo Nunes da Costa .

      Brussels, n.pr., 18 August 1688. - Engraved title page with arms of the newly married couple, 2 putti holding banners, and two women labeled Galiope [@sic] and Talia (see below). Engraved title page, (4 ll., including errata on final verso), 328 pp. 4°, twentieth-century (second or third quarter) blind-tooled calf (slight wear), spine with raised bands in five compartments, two crimson leather lettering pieces in second and fourth compartments, gilt letter (title), edges sprinkled red from an earlier binding. A few light stains; tiny wormhole in last 5 quires, touching one letter per page. Overall in very good to fine condition. Old signatures on title page, in upper (scored) and lower ("De Jozé Montrº Nayo") margins. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION. This verse narrative describes the festivities - including illuminations, triumphal arches, bonfires and bullfights - celebrated in Lisbon upon the marriage of D. Pedro II (1648-1706) to Maria Sophia Isabella (1666-1699), daughter of Philipp Wilhelm of Neuburg, Count Palatine. In the prologue, the author notes that the royal nuptials can be better described by a poem than by a prose narrative: "Bem sey que as excelencias destes Regios Nupciais Elogios, mais erão Sugeito para as eloquencias de hum Poema, do que materia para as limitações de huma Rellação." (f. A3v). The 92 @ramos give lengthy poetic descriptions of Maria Sophia's arrival in Lisbon, a day of bullfights (pp. 159-252), a fireworks display (pp. 253-290), and a second day of bullfights (pp. 291-328). Each section of the poem is preceded by a few lines in italic explaining the upcoming "scene," often giving details of the actors, sets, costume, and gold and silver ornaments. For example: "No meyo deste Cerco, se levantava huma Belligera fortaleza com quatro soberbos Baluartes, & oito vistozas Guaritas, Coroandose com hum Eminente Castello; viãose em Contorno sobre as agoas, muitos Marinhos gigantes armados com lanças & Rodellas, donde violentos se ocultavão engenhosos fogos" (p. 260).The charming title page incorporates the combined arms of D. Pedro II and his wife, surmounted by a large crown. Out of the crown stretch a dragon and a large bird who hold wreaths over the women who flank the arms. On the left, "Galiope" @sic, for Calliope, muse of epic poetry) is crowned with a globe and cross that bears the name Maria, and holds a trumpet in her right hand. On the right is Talia (Thalia, muse of comedy), crowned with a globe bearing the name Pedro, and holding a stringed instrument. Above the arms and the muses, two putti hold three banners bearing part of the title. The end of the author's prologue explains the use of these two figures: "Na severidade de Reays, não perdem os Epithalamios condição de festivos; neste que te aprezento, adorno o seriozo com as galas do alegre; valhome do heroyco de CALIOPE, sem desprezar o agradavel de TALIA: com o @Clarim daquella, expecifico as grandezas; com o @Plectro desta, solemnizo os festejos" (f. A4r).D. Pedro II of Portugal (1648-1706) was the second surviving son of D. João IV. From 1668 he was regent for his elder, mentally deficient brother, D. Afonso VI, whom he exiled to the Azores and later Sintra, where Afonso died in 1683. Afonso's marriage to Maria Francisca of Savoy had meanwhile been annulled because it had never been consummated. Pedro married his former sister-in-law in 1668, and she bore him a daughter, Isabel Luísa Josefa de Portugal, who became heir to the throne. The combination of D. Isabel's poor physical health and the strict rules for succession to the Portuguese throne led to canceled engagements with royal offspring across Europe, earning her the nickname "a Sempre-Noiva," "the ever-engaged." When Maria Francisca died in 1683, D. Pedro aimed to secure the succession by marrying into a famously fecund and well-connected family. He dispatched Manuel da Silva Teles to Heidelberg to request the hand of Maria Sophia, daughter of the Count Palatinate, sister of Eleanor Madeleine, third wife of Leopold I [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Rodrigo de Sousa Countinho Teixeira de Andrada Barbosa (1823?1894), 3º Conde de Linhares (modern title). The library of the Condes de Linhares, consisting of over 14,000 volumes, was one of the most important ever formed in Portugal. The title, extinguished in the seventeenth century, was revived in the Sousa Coutinho family, one of the most cultured and enlightened of the old Portuguese nobility. The first Conde de Linhares in this line (descendents but not the representatives of the original line), was D Rodrigo de Sousa Coutinho (Chaves, 1745?Rio de Janeiro, 1812). He was created Conde de Linhares in 1808. His grandson, the third Conde de Linhares in the Sousa Coutinho line, D. Rodrigo de Sousa Countinho (Paris, 1823?Sintra, 1894), married a daughter of the first Duques de Loulé, who through her mother was a grandaughter of D. João VI and D. Carlota Joaquina. Bernardino Ribeiro de Carvalho (1846?1910), born in the freguesia de Cabaços, concelho de Alvaiázere, came to Lisbon, was brought into the business of his uncle / father?in?law, and acquired a great fortune importing exotic lumber. He was a passionate book collector, frequenting auctions and bookshops from the 1860s until shortly prior to his death. Among the sales he attended and purchased at were those of Sir Gubian (1867), the Visconde de Juromenha (1887), José da Silva Men [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Greek letters, then:] Michaelis Pselli de operatione daemonum dialogus. Gilbertus Gaulminus Molinensis primus Graece edidit & notis illustravit. E museo Dan. Hasenmulleri, ling. Gr. in Academia Kiloniensi Professoris Ordinarii. ["On the Operation of Dæmons"].

      Sumptibus Joh. Sebastiani Richelii, Kiloni, [Kiel] 1688 - Hardcover, 12mo (13 x 7.5 cms). Contemporary full vellum, [12] + 166 pp. Text in Latin and Greek on opposite pages. Includes index of authors cited; with head- and tail-piece. Footnotes. First seven words of title in Greek letters: (transcribed: Michaelou tou Psellou Peri energeias daimonon dialogos). Michael Constantine Psellus (1018 – 1178 C.E) was a monk, philosopher, politician and historian, widely considered to be one of the great writers and thinkers of the Byzantine era. Psellus was born in Constantinople (modern Istanbul) and served as an advisor to a number of emperors, as well as becoming the head Professor at the newly founded University of Constantinople, where he played a key role in the reintroduction of the study of Greek thought, particularly that of Plato. He wrote on a wide variety of subjects. His "De Operatione Daemonum," is basically a discourse on the nature and classification of demons, presented in the form of a dialogue between two individuals, Timothy and "a Thracian." Byzantine magical and hermetic works are often cited as having been the stepping stone between Greek thought and the development of Western Hermeticism during the Renaissance. Psellus' "De Operatione Daemonum" was an important work that was reprinted a number of times (mostly in Greek and Latin) following its first publication (in French translation) in 1576. It was considered of such importance that it was anthologised into several collections of hermetic texts, along with the works of Iamblichus, Proclus and Hermes Trismegistus. The first English translation of "De Operatione Daemonum" was published in 1843, and the work has recently been reissued in a new edition as Volume V of the Golden Hoard Press "Sourceworks of Ceremonial Magic Series." This 1688 edition is the second (the first was 1615) to be edited by Gilbert Gaulmin (1587–1667) a French author and counsellor of State, who was known as a translator and philologist, but is most widely remembered for his unorthodox approach to marriage. When (for reasons unknown), a curate refused to marry Gaulmin and his intended bride, Gaulmin declared in his presence that he took her as his wife, and the two thereafter lived as married. This caused such scandal that an investigation into marriages "out of church" was held, and they were made illegal, becoming known a marriages "a la Gaulmin." The 1688 edition is the first to contain a scholarly edition of the Greek text, which was prepared especially for it by Daniel Hasenmüller (1651–1691), a German philologist and classicist who was also Professor of Oriental languages at the University of Kiel. This copy from the library of G.R.S Mead, with his ownership stamp: "G. R. S. Mead, Theosophical Head Quarters, 19 Avenue Road, Regent's Park," on the front paste down. George Robert Stowe Mead (1863–1933) was one of the most significant figures in late nineteenth and early twentieth century British occultism. An industrious author, editor, and translator, who was for a time Mme. Blavatsky's private secretary and also became a joint-secretary of the Esoteric Section (E.S.) of the Theosophical Society and an active member of the "Inner Circle" of the T.S. He quit the T.S. following the first great Leadbeater scandal and went on to found The Quest Society. Initially with a strong interest in Eastern Religions, Mead became increasingly involved with the study of Gnosticism, Neoplatonism, and the Western Hermetic tradition. "De Operatione Daemonum" was obviously one of the source works that he used in those studies, which bore fruit in the form of some of his most famous books. The vellum binding is somewhat age darkened, but otherwise clean and solid, with just a couple of tiny nicks. Internally there is a little light toning, but the pages are otherwise fresh, supple, and unmarked. All early editions of the work are rare. This copy not only in scarce as such, but in lovely condition, and with an important provenance. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A MAPP OF YE IMPROVED PART OF PENSILVANIA IN AMERICA DIVIDED INTO COUNTYES TOWNSHIPPS AND LOTTS

      [London]: "Surveyed by Tho: Holme Sold by P. Lea at ye Atlas and Hercules in Cheapside," [ca. 1688].. Sheet size: 20 1/2 x 24 inches. Copper engraving, handcolored in outline. Inset plan of "The City of Philadelphia two miles in Length and one in Breadth" at upper center. Tables of "References to the Settlements of the Inhabitants of Chester and Bucks counties" at upper center. Dedication to "William Penn Esq. Proprietor and Governor of Pennsylvania by J. Harris" at upper right. 112 numbered and lettered references in Chester County, 29 numbered references in Bucks County, 36 numbered and lettered references in Philadelphia County, and hundreds of land holders identified on the map itself. Very good. Very rare: the first issue of Holme's map of Pennsylvania - the first map of Pennsylvania. This copy a superb example with contemporary outline color and wide margins on all sides. Thomas Holme was appointed surveyor general of Pennsylvania by William Penn in April 1682, the year after the colony was chartered. It was his responsibility to supervise the surveying of all tracts of land that had been sold. In May 1687, at Penn's request, he forwarded a manuscript map in London that gave a detailed portrait of the extent of settlement at that date. "This was published first as a very large and later as a small engraving. In both, the grid plan of the city was carefully inserted in recognition of the fact that Philadelphia was the focal point and that the city plan had strong sales value in all promotion of the province generally" - Snyder. The manuscript survey was published as a six-sheet wall map in late 1687, of which only a handful of copies have survived. The present version, finely engraved by John Harris, was published by Philip Lea shortly thereafter. Although reduced in size from the wall map, the engraver maintained the extraordinary detail. Virtually every first purchaser is identified, either on the map itself or via the numbered and lettered references. The present copy is the rare first state of the map, issued by P. Lea sometime between 1687 and 1699 (though likely circa 1688 as the map was an integral part of William Penn's promotion of his tract). On the later states, Lea's imprint has been erased from the plate and another imprint added at the lower left on the New Jersey side of the Delaware River. The map is the most detailed and complete for any English American colony of the seventeenth century. Penn intended the map for promotional purposes, and it shows the boundaries and names the owner of every settled tract in the colony. The plan of Philadelphia at upper center is taken from Holme's original survey map of 1682, from which the city was laid out. Holme's was the first map of Philadelphia, and in its printed form, the first obtainable for any English American city. DEGREES OF LATITUDE, Custis atlas, entry 71. BURDEN 669.

        Catalogus librorum Roberti Scott, bibliopolæ regii Londinensis. In quavis lingua & facultate insignium ex variis Europæ partibus advectorum, quorum auctio habenda est Londini, ad insigne ursi in vico (vulgo dicto) Ave-Mary-Lane, prope Ludgate-street, decimo tertio die Februarii, 1687/8. Per Benjaminum Walford, bibliopolam Londinensem

      [London]: distributed by Mr. William Nott, Mr. Holford, Mr Willis, Mr. Fox, Mr Lownds, Mr. Wilkinson, Mr. Rich. Chiswell, Mr Peter Parker, Mr. Turner, Mr. Benj. Shirly, Mr. Hayes and Mr. Adiel Mill, [1688]. 4to, [4], 144, 135-175, [1]pp., without the final blank leaf, browned, red half morocco, spine lettered in gilt. Seventeenth-century book auction catalogues are extremely rare and are seldom found in commerce. Robert Scott was a successful bookseller and publisher, specialising in importing scholarly works in Latin from the Continent. The sale in 1688 was organised by his former apprentice Benjamin Walford and was made up of a large part of his stock. Scott counted Samuel Pepys and Robert Hooke among his customers. Mr. Adiel Mill, mentioned in the imprint as a distributor, was, as well, the publisher, having just purchased the business from Robert Scott. Mills lost the business in 1690, thereby ruining Scott for being unable to pay his purchase debt. "The catalogue extends to no less than 176pp., comprising 7040 lots, which would represent some 25,000 volumes, an enormous quantity for a bookseller of that period to amass for the purpose of retailing. The contents are classified into Latin Theology, Ecclesiastical and Ritualistic Books of the Roman-Catholic Church, Juridical, Miscellaneous, Medical and Philosophical, Mathematical, French, Italian, and Spanish, English Theology and Miscellanies, Books of Prints, and Manuscripts."—Lawler.
