        Geography Rectified: or, a Description of the World, In all its kingdoms, provinces, countries, Islands, Cities, Towns, Seas,. &c. As also their commodities, coins, weights, and measures, compared with those at London. Illustrated with seventy six maps. The second edition, enlarged with above thirty sheets more in the description, and about twenty new maps

      Morden and Cockerill, London 1688 - The maps in Robert Morden's atlas "Geography Rectified" are some of the first miniature maps engraved and published in England. Produced in 1688, the atlas is noted and valued for its maps of the British colonies, which Morden produced to fulfill the growing demand for colonial information that accompanied the settlements' increasing prosperity. Today, these colonial maps are some of the earliest such maps obtainable. Morden's detailed work shows his debt not only to British cartographic precedent, but also to French maps of this period, which pursued a comparable interest in the burgeoning New World. Robert Morden (c.1650-1703) was a geographer, publisher, bookseller, and globe maker who collaborated with many other publishers in particular Thomas Cockerill to produce high quality atlases (Burden 519-524). Lovely miniature world atlas with rubricated title page. Includes 76 maps plus 2 bonus maps not listed in the index: Armenia and a hand colored Bermuda map. The first 17 maps plus Jamaica, Chili, and Japan with early crude but pleasing color with some bleed through to verso. The maldives map and Asia map are printed upside down although surrounding text on these pages is printed correctly. Small 4to, full contemporary leather with hand tooled design, first fly leaf added, corners worn and strengthened, covers re-enforced with new hinges.

        An Account of the Reasons of the Nobility and Gentry's Invitation os His Highness the Prince of Orange into England

      London - Nathanael Ranew and Jonathan Robinson, 1688 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An important pamphlet documenting the reasons the Dutch William of Orange arrived in England and became its ruler. A very scarce pamplet, last seen at auction in 1981. In November 1687, James II's wife, Mary of Modena, was announced to be pregnant. That month, to gain the favour of English Protestants, William of Orange wrote an open letter to the English people in which he disapproved of James's religious policies. Seeing him as a friend, and often having maintained secret contacts with him for years, many English politicians began to negotiate an armed invasion of England. William at first opposed the prospect of invasion, but most historians now agree that he began to assemble an expeditionary force in April 1688. In June, James's wife, Mary of Modena, bore a son (James Francis Edward Stuart), who displaced William's wife to become first in the line of succession. Public anger also increased because of the trial of seven bishops who had publicly opposed James's religious policies and had petitioned him to reform them. On 30 June 1688 the same day the bishops were acquitted a group of political figures known afterward as the Immortal Seven, sent William a formal invitation. William's intentions to invade were public knowledge by September 1688. With a Dutch army, William landed at Brixham in southwest England on 5 November 1688. He came ashore from the ship Brill, proclaiming the liberties of England and the Protestant religion I will maintain. Condition: Disbound folio. Tender, with some pages starting to separate. Four pages are close trimmed losing the last couple of letters, stillmostly legible. The pages are dusted and mildly age-toned as expected of a book this age. Overall: FAIR..

        The Character of a Trimmer

      London - 1688, 1688 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A early edition of The Character of a Trimmer Re-bound in quarter leather with marbled paper-covered boards and gilt lettering. Early edition. Although published under Coventry's name, the authorship of the work was acknowledged by Lord Halifax to whom it is generally ascribed. Cf. DNB and BM. COPAC. Of Halifaxs authorship, the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography tells us, Halifax had anonymously distributed three manuscript copies of The Character of a Trimmer, one to the archbishop of Canterbury with a letter asking him to deliver it to the king. It circulated in manuscript until pirated for publication in 1688. In it he alluded to policies that he had opposed in council; the genre of a character and arguments balanced on the notion of the golden mean enabled him to do so without betraying his authorship, which he disclosed after 1688. George Savile, 1st Marquess of Halifax PC,1633 1695, was an English statesman, writer, and politician. He was nephew of Sir William Coventry, who is said to have influenced his political opinions. He entered public life with all the advantages of lineage, political connections, great wealth and estates, and uncommon abilities. Of his literary life, the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography states, Halifax was better known as a politician than an author. His eight publications, five of which were first circulated in manuscript, were all anonymous and of his political and private opinions, in an age when radical ideas in religion and politics threatened the traditional structure of society in which Halifax was exalted, he could be cynical about the ideology of both the established church and the monarchy while remaining sincerely devoted to preservation of the status quo. Halifax could afford political outspokenness and independence. Of Halifax's pamphlet, and the political situations it describes, the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography explains, Tory journalists had been denouncing trimmers, a supposed third party of neutrals and traitors, in order to intimidate moderate tories and Anglicans who did not support thorough repression of whigs and dissenters. Halifax's pamphlet, ostensibly a defence of the centre against both extremes, was designed to undermine tory support for repression at home and inaction abroad. It argued that ruling in accordance with the laws was in the interest of both prince and people; that the Church of England was best served by comprehension of protestant dissenters or some leniency towards them (less towards Catholic laymen, and only to promote conversions); and that the balance of power was in the national interest. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is almost no wear to the extremities. Internally the pages are bright with the very occasional spot, and stains to the first and last few pages, as shown above. Overall the condition is very good..

        Description historique du royaume de Macaçar, divisé en trois livres. [Macassar, Macacar, Makassar]

      Paris: Hilaire Foucault, 1688. Livre. Satisfaisant. Cuir. Ed. originale. Petit In-8. Paris, Hilaire Foucault, 1688. 17 x 10 cm (R), petit in-8°, 4 ff. n. ch. + 326 pp., reliure en plein veau fauve, dos à 5 nerfs orné, traces d'armes sur les plats. Ex-libris héraldique gravé ancien. Edition originale recherchée de cette histoire de Macassar (sud des Célèbes, Indes orientales, actuelle Indonésie). "A peine âgé de vingt ans, l'abbé Gervaise partit avec des missionnaires pour le royaume de Siam, où il sejourna environ quatre ans. Avide d'instruction, il étudia avec soin les moeurs, les usages, le caractère et jusqu'à l'histoire des habitants de ce pays. De retour en France, il publia une Histoire naturelle et politique du royaume de Siam (1688, 1 vol. in-4), et peu de temps après une Description historique du royaume de Macassar (1 vol. in-12). Ce savant ecclésiastique avait amené avec lui, des Indes orientales, deux fils du roi de Macassar. Plus capable qu'aucun autre de suivre leur éducation, puisqu'il était à peu près le seul homme de France qui sût parler la langue de ces enfants, il fut chargé par Louis XIV de les instruire dans la religion catholique." (Michaud, XVI, 338). A son retour, il "obtint successivement une cure à Vannes, la prévôté de Suèvre, partit, en 1724, pour la mission de la Guyane espagnole, avec le titre d'évêque d'Horren in patribus, et succomba sous les coups de Caraïbes, près des rives de l'Orénoque." (Larousse du XIXe, VIII (2), 1231). Reliure sérieusement frottée avec fortes épidermures, coiffes manquantes et mors fendillé. Elle reste bien solide néanmoins et l'intérieur est bien frais. (Brunet, II, 1562 ; Graesse, III, 61 ; Chadenat, I, 838 ; Boucher de la Richarderie, V, 168-170 ; Cioranescu, 32931).

        Discorso al Serenissimo Cosimo III Granduca di Toscana intorno al difendersi da' Riempimenti, e dalle Corrosioni de' Fiumi

      Florence: Piero Matini, 1688. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to. [23 x 17 cm] (2) ff., 72 pp., including woodcut Medici arms on title. Bound in old cartonnage. Minor soiling to title, and paper flaw in lower right corner. Pale waterstain and minor foxing on a few leaves, otherwise a broad-margined, fresh copy. Rare first edition of the only published work on engineering by Galileo's last and most important disciple. Viviani (1622-1703) was appointed chief engineer of the Office of River Control by Cosimo III, who commissioned from Viviani a proposal for preventing the Arno river from further silting up and flooding. Viviani's response gives an interesting description of various hydraulic and engineering techniques as he calls for the construction of run-off channels, weirs, and training walls. He spends a good portion of his treatise on the discussion of different building materials, and advocates the use of relatively expensive woods such as oak and chestnut, arguing that, in the long run, they are more durable and ultimately cheaper. In his introduction Viviani outlines the consequences of the rising of the riverbed for the agriculture of the Florentine countryside and the economy of the city. * Cinti 159; Riccardi I.627.

        Relazione della città d'Athene, colle provincie dell'Attica, Focia, Beozia, e Negroponte, ne'tempi, che furono queste passeggiate¿

      Galeazzo Rosati, Parma 1688 - (4) ff including half-title, 135 pp, plus engraved portrait and 6 plates of Athens. Bound in old red half linen over marbled boards. Scattered foxing to margins, otherwise a very good copy, pages clean and crisp. Extremely rare first edition of this account of Athens by the Italian adventurer Cornelio Magni, one of very few accounts of that city to appear in the early modern era and one of even fewer to give accurate, up to date eyewitness illustrations of its monuments. ¿After the fall of Constantinople in 1453 and the Turkish conquest of Greece a few years later, Athens, and the Acropolis in particular, became virtually inaccessible to foreigners. For inspiration and examples from the classical past, the architects of the Renaissance thus relied on Roman ruins, which, though regarded as mere imitations of the Greek originals, were readily visible throughout Europe¿ (Middleton, ¿The Early Exploration of Greece¿). Until the dawn of the 18th century, ¿classical Greek architecture was understood almost entirely on the basis of the writings of the first-century B. C. Roman architect Vitruvius¿it remained no more than a literary trope, for there was no real knowledge of the architecture of Greece.¿ Cornelio Magni was a member of a landmark expedition to Greece in 1674 led by the French ambassador Nointel. The present work deals specifically with the expedition¿s time in Athens and the surrounding area (including Marathon and several isolated monasteries). He includes detailed descriptions of each monument he encounters ¿ some of which, like the Temple of Theseon ¿ are relatively well-preserved today ¿ but others of which, eg. the Parthenon ¿ are not. These textual descriptions are accompanied by 6 plates depicting: 1) a folding city plan of Athens, 2) the Temple of Theseon 3) The Lantern of Demosthenes 4) The Temple of the Winds 5) The Temple of Minerva (ie the Parthenon) 6) a bust of Ceres One of the first modern Europeans to sketch these monuments, Magni appears to have had some interest in their architectural history: he notes, for example, that drawings of the Temple of the Winds were made by a certain Italian architect, Francesco Zambetti in 1465, and are preserved in the Bibliotheca Barberini in Rome; we have been unable to trace these. It is interesting to note that Magni¿s illustrations depict the city prior to the Venetian bombardment of Athens which destroyed or damaged many of the city¿s most famous monuments. Late 17th century architectural writers such as Claude Perrault and Roland Fréart (Sieur de Chambray) still relied heavily on antiquated ideas of Greek architecture, precisely because there were no modern records to discuss. Although several Westerners had made inroads into Ottoman-controlled Greece beginning in the early 17th century, Nointel specifically applied for, and was granted, permission to travel freely around Ottoman lands and brought a draughtsman with him to record both architecture and scenery in the areas he visited. It was the literary aftermath of this expedition which seems to have re-introduced modern Athens to the European readers ¿ an illustrated account edited by Jacob Spon appearing as early as 1674, prior to Antoine des Barres¿ L'estat present de l'Archipel (1678). Magni appears to have published his own account in response to the growing interest in Athens evinced by his colleagues¿ works.

        A True and perfect narrative of the strange and unexpected finding the crucifix and gold-chain of that pious prince, St. Edward the King and Confessor, which was found... and presented to His Most Sacred Majesty, King James the Second

      London: Printed by J.B. and sold by Randal Taylor, 1688. First Edition. Small 4to. pp. [6], 34. With imprimatur leaf facing the title. Bound in 19th century marbled boards (rubbed). Re-backed in black morocco with older gilt lettered spine laid on. Bookplate depicting a baron's crown on inside front cover. Sticker removed from front end paper. Booklet is trimmed on the bottom obscuring the lower printed border line on the title page, (but not affecting any text). Plenty of space remains in the margins of the text pages. 40 sheets of 19th century blank paper are bound in the rear. Top edge gilt. The author is actually Henry Keepe writing under the pseudonym of Charles Taylour. His booklet, addressed to King James II, describes how he (Keepe) salvaged the crucifix and gold chain of Edward the Confessor from a damaged tomb at Westminster and how he later presented this treasure to the newly crowned king. The author claims that his discovery of the artifact on June 11, 1685 was a "forerunner of the Good News" that James had defeated his enemies (presumably the Duke of Monmouth). Keepe then relates three previous occasions when King Edward's body was disinterred. On each occasion the corpse was supposedly found in a miraculously uncorrupted state. These stories stand in some contrast to the author's own experience. Although Keepe stresses that the tomb's artifacts, including the gold chain and crucifix, correspond to historical accounts, he also reveals (perhaps inadvertently) that the Confessor's body was nothing but bones. Unusual and scarce piece. ESTC locates only 7 copies in the U.S. OCLC lists 5 locations. [ESTC R12288; Wing K128; Clancy, English Catholic Books, 565].

        Relazione della città d'Athene, colle provincie dell'Attica, Focia, Beozia, e Negroponte, ne'tempi, che furono queste passeggiate

      Parma: Galeazzo Rosati, 1688. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. (4) ff including half-title, 135 pp, plus engraved portrait and 6 plates of Athens. Bound in old red half linen over marbled boards. Scattered foxing to margins, otherwise a very good copy, pages clean and crisp. Extremely rare first edition of this account of Athens by the Italian adventurer Cornelio Magni, one of very few accounts of that city to appear in the early modern era and one of even fewer to give accurate, up to date eyewitness illustrations of its monuments. "After the fall of Constantinople in 1453 and the Turkish conquest of Greece a few years later, Athens, and the Acropolis in particular, became virtually inaccessible to foreigners. For inspiration and examples from the classical past, the architects of the Renaissance thus relied on Roman ruins, which, though regarded as mere imitations of the Greek originals, were readily visible throughout Europe" (Middleton, "The Early Exploration of Greece"). Until the dawn of the 18th century, "classical Greek architecture was understood almost entirely on the basis of the writings of the first-century B. C. Roman architect Vitruvius.it remained no more than a literary trope, for there was no real knowledge of the architecture of Greece." Cornelio Magni was a member of a landmark expedition to Greece in 1674 led by the French ambassador Nointel. The present work deals specifically with the expedition's time in Athens and the surrounding area (including Marathon and several isolated monasteries). He includes detailed descriptions of each monument he encounters - some of which, like the Temple of Theseon - are relatively well-preserved today - but others of which, eg. the Parthenon - are not. These textual descriptions are accompanied by 6 plates depicting: 1) a folding city plan of Athens, 2) the Temple of Theseon 3) The Lantern of Demosthenes 4) The Temple of the Winds 5) The Temple of Minerva (ie the Parthenon) 6) a bust of Ceres One of the first modern Europeans to sketch these monuments, Magni appears to have had some interest in their architectural history: he notes, for example, that drawings of the Temple of the Winds were made by a certain Italian architect, Francesco Zambetti in 1465, and are preserved in the Bibliotheca Barberini in Rome; we have been unable to trace these. It is interesting to note that Magni's illustrations depict the city prior to the Venetian bombardment of Athens which destroyed or damaged many of the city's most famous monuments.

Postrema Editio Prioribus Auctior et Emendatior. Frankfurt: Sumptibus Societatis. Imprimebat Balthas. Christoph. Wust., 1688. [xvi] pp, 282 columns. Quarto (10" x 8"). Contemporary vellum, early hand-lettered title to spine, ties lacking.

Handsome. * With an index of titles and Godefroy's edition of the Twelve Tables, Constitutiones Friderici II, Extravagantes, Liber de Pace Constantiae and Epitome Feudorum. Commissioned by the Emperor Justinian in 530 CE, the body of writings known collectively as the Corpus Juris Civilis preserved and restated all existing Roman law. Compiled in three years under the direction of Tribonium, it was both a critical restatement of earlier law and jurisprudential writings and a complete collection of recent legislation. It is divided into four books, the Institutes, Digest, Code and Novels. The Code contains the laws in force during Justinian's reign. It is divided into 12 books. Book 1 deals with ecclesiastical law, the sources of law, and the duties of high officials. Books 2-8 deal with private law. Book 9 deals with criminal law. Books 10-12 deal with administrative law. It received a great deal of commentary during the medieval and early modern eras. That of Denis Godefroy was influential well into the twentieth century. Godefroy was a jurist, humanist, historian, scholar of Roman law and professor at the Universities of Geneva and Heidelberg. He was also the first to apply the collective name Corpus Juris Civilis to Justinian's works. KVK locates 5 copies. This edition not in the British Museum Catalogue.

        Peregranacion que ha hecho de l mayor parte del Mundo

      Zarazoga & Valencia,: Pasqual Bueno & Iayme de Bordazar, 1688 &, 1697.. Two works bound together, square octavo, woodcut headpiece, some spotting and very insignificant damage to the lower corners of a few pages (not affecting text); a handsome copy in nineteenth-century polished calf, spine banded and gilt, joints starting but still very firm. The rare complete account of Cubero's travels, comprising two separately-published and entertaining works by Pedro Cubero Sebasti·n (1645-c.1697). Each is complete in its own right, and the two are only occasionally seen together as here to form a complete work.Cubero was a Spanish priest best known for the first work here, his account of his journey around the world. In what has been claimed to have been the first circumnavigation from west to east, Cubero travelled mainly by land rather than sea. He was certainly one of the earliest circumnavigators to travel independently rather than as part of an expedition. He gives much detail on the peoples he observed, told with a great deal of charm. The account includes interesting descriptions of exotic destinations such as India and China, in particular. The final leg of his journey took him overland from Acapulco to Veracruz, and he includes detail on the religious activities and settlements in New Spain. It is entirely possible to trace his route today based on the descriptions he gives, through what remain very remote areas of Mexico.The second work here is a continuation of Cubero's travels, and certainly the rarer of the two. 'This second part concentrates largely on his adventures with the army in Europe, as well as describing the battle of Arsan and other notable events. Named Apostolic Confessor to the army of the Holy Roman Emperor, he served the Emperor against the Turks in Ungria, and was present at the blockade of Buda.' (Howgego)Cubero studied in Zaragoza and Salamanca, and after his ordination travelled to Rome to join Propaganda Fide, the missionary arm of the Catholic Church. As a result, in 1670 he undertook a journey to East Asia, eventually completing a round the world trip: the first time that such a considerable part of the trip had been done overland in Asia and North America. 'He apparently visited the west coast of India, where he observed the decay of Goa, then sailed around the coast to Madras, where he observed Hindu rites. After crossing to Malacca he was thrown into prison by the Dutch. Banished from Malacca, he proceeded to Manila and then, by way of Mexico, to Europe, where he arrived in 1679' (Howgego). He returned to Madrid in January 1680, in time to join the celebrations for the arrival of Maria Luisa of OrlÈans, recently married to King Charles II of Spain.The first account is present in the "segunda impression" (the catalogue of the John Carter Brown Library calls this more properly the fourth edition: a first version was published in Madrid in 1680, and then extended and revised for a Naples edition of 1682). This edition was printed in Zaragoza (no doubt in part because of Cubero's connection with the city); all early editions of this work are of some rarity, and it was this Zaragoza edition which was known to Salva.The second work is in the first (only?) edition; it is much scarcer, and was not known to Brunet.Brunet, II 437; Catalogo de Obras Impresasí Universitat de Valencia, 1973 & 1974; Howgego, I C225; JCB, 688/64; Sabin, 17821.

        Geography Rectified: or, a Description of the World, in all its kingdoms, provinces, countries, ... &c. As also their commodities, coins, weights, and measures, compared with those at London. Illustrated with seventy six maps. The second edition, enlarged with above thirty sheets more in the description, and about thirty new maps

      London: printed for Robert Morden and Thomas Cokerill, 1688. Small quarto. (7 3/4 x 6 inches). Title-page printed in red and black. 78 copper- engraved maps, all printed so that they are integral with the text, including the leaf inserted between pp.544 and 545 (as issued) with the map and description of Bermuda. (Lacking the final three text leaves [pp. 591-596], 'catalogue' of maps leaf defective and laid down onto a sheet of early 19th-century wove paper with many entries supplied in manuscript, three maps shaved with loss [Spain, 'Sclavonia' and the map of New England and New York on p.576], text leaf C1 torn with some loss, 14 other text leaves with clean tears or repaired tears). Contemporary calf (spine worn, stitching defective). Second expanded edition of Morden's charming atlas. The first edition (published in 1680) contained 62 maps, compared to the 78 in the present work. The section on the Americas starts at p.512 and runs to the end: the maps in this section include a general map of America (in Burden's 'State 3', with California still shown as an island). The others delineate various regions: Terra Magellanica; Chili and Paraguay; Brazile; Castilla del Or Guiana Peru the country of ye Amazones; The Western Islands; Insulae Jamaicae; Barbados; Aestivarum Insualae ac Barmudas; Mexico or New Spaine; New Mexico; Florida and ye Great Lakes of Canada.; Carolina; Virginia [with Maryland]; new Jarsey and Pensilvania; New England and New York; North West part of America. The finely-observed maps may well have been engraved by Herman Moll: they are very similar in style and Moll's earliest known work was for Moses Pitt in 1678 so he was active at the time. Cf.

        Digressiones Justinianeae In Partes Duas, Quarum Altera Nova,

      1688. 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).

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.
