        Sylvia's revenge, or; a satyr against man; in answer to the satyr against woman.

      London: printed by Joseph Streater, and are to be sold by John Southby, 1688 - Small 4to, [viii],22,[2], advertisement) p. including the longitudinal half title. The font used for the longitudinal title is unusually large and thick, and clearly was not intended to be used as they customarily were, for folding over the fore-edge. Rebound in dark red straight-grained half morocco. Ex Lib Mortimer Schiff and John Brett-Smith. A fine copy. First edition. Wing A2992D; CBEL II, 467. Sylvia's revenge was written in reply to Robert Gould's misogynistic poem Love given o're: or, a satyr against the pride; lust, and inconstancy, &c. of woman, first published in 1682 and many times republished. The satire also inspired the fourteen-year old Sarah Fyge to reply with The female advocate, 1686. According to James Sutherland, to read Ames's work is "to scrape the very bottom of a muddy barrel, but his vigorous and often obscene doggerel satisfied the crude taste of a masculine public." John Dunton, who published some of Ames's earliest work, described him as "originally a coat-seller, but he always had some yammerings upon him after learning and the muses. Wine and women were the great bane of his life and happiness." Sylvia's revenge is Ames's first work by a good three years. The attribution comes only from a passing remark in a poem attacking him, The search after wit, published in 1691. See above. The writer speaks throughout in a female persona, and the commendatory poem at the beginning, addressed to "Madam," is signed "M. P.," which could either be Mary Pix, or intended to be taken for her.

        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.

Gervaise went as a missionary to the kingdom of Siam and stayed there for four years, investigating the religion, customs, literature and history of its inhabitants. He published his findings in his Histoire naturelle et politique du royaume de Siam, and in the present work, both appearing in 1688. Brunet VI, 28229 ; Chadenat, 838.

        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.

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. Sabin 23476; NMM Cat. IV, 177; Hill 577-579. [Attributes: First Edition]

        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).

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]

Testatine e capilettera incisi riccamente ornati. La seconda parte è di apparati filologici e paratestuali e di varianti contenute nel codice perugino dell'opera. Bellissimo esemplare con alcune cc. brunite. Magnifica impressione secentesca di Leida dell'opera principale di Stefano di Bisanzio, scrittore bizantino del VI secolo (si ritiene che egli sia vissuto sotto il regno di Giustiniano) che ci ha lasciato questa imponente compilazione geografica le cui fonti sono i principali geografi dell'antichità classica, da Tolomeo a Strabone a Pausania, senza contare una pletora di scrittori minori. 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.
