López de Cogolludo, Diego.
Juan Garcia Infanzon, 1688. In this account of the conquest and Spanish settlement of the Yucatan, López de Cogolludo, a Franciscan missionary and administrator originally from Alcalá de Henares, presents a sought-after account. He had access to a manuscript version of Bishop Landa's work and consulted such important printed sources as Torquemada. => He also presents his personal eye-witness accounts of events during his 30 years among the Maya (1634-65). Robert Patch says in the Encyclopedia of Latin American History & Culture (III, 458) that López de Cogolludo wrote this history in the 1650s and that it is "a major source not only for the history of Yucatán but also for the study of Maya culture." Provenance: Small booklabel: "Marchio Regaliae D.D. 1741." John Carter Brown (1797-1874) purchased this from Henry Stevens in 1845/1846. On his death to his son John Nicholas Brown (1861-1900). On his death deeded to the John Carter Brown Library. Deaccessioned 2008.

[Anon]. La fameuse comedienne ou Histoire de la Guerin, auparavant femme & veuve de Moliere. Francfort: Chez Frans Rottenberg, marchand libraire, pres les Carmes; [i.e. Amsterdam: Daniel Elzevier], 1688. Original edition. 12mo. Contemporary calf, gilt spine rubbed & chipped at crown. Arms in gilt on both covers. 89pp., [3pp. containing biographies of 8 comediennes du Theatre de Guegnegaud]. Collation: A-C12, D10. In his youth, Moliere joined the Bejart troupe of actors. Madeleine Bejart became his long-term mistress, but in 1662 he married Armande Bejart instead (Madeleine was already married). The present work alleges that this Armande (later Guerin) was in fact Moliere's own daughter. This is a "scandalous attack upon [Moliere's] wife in the form of a pamphlet called The Famous Comedienne. Guerin was the name of the actor Madame de Moliere married for her second husband, and this libel upon her character, published fifteen years after the poet's death, was so abusive that the anonymous author was obliged to print it in a foreign country. In spite of documentary evidence to the contrary, the vile charges it contains have been accepted wholly or in part by the majority of Moliere's biographers. Thus introduced, let the gossips and slanderers have their say" (Crane). Attributed to Mme. Boudin, an actor in the troupe of Theatre de Guegnegaud, and others (see OCLC note below). Later published as Les intrigues amoureuses de m*** et de mme, son epouse, Histoire des intrigues amoureuses de Moliere et de celles de sa femme, and Les intrigues de Moliere et celles de sa femme. … [Click Below for Full Description]

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."

Contemporary sheep, the spine in seven compartments with six raised bands, brown morocco lettering-piece in one, the others decorated in gilt (one or two minor surface tears). Provenance: with the near contemporary ownership inscription of Julius Hoerle, "Pharmacoleac" on both title-pages. The second edition thus. An unusually clean and bright copy of this detailed account of Italy, depicting it as it was towards the end of nearly two hundred years of Spanish domination. By about 1550 almost all of Italy had been subjugated by the Habsburg ruler Charles V, who was both the Holy Roman emperor and king of Spain. When Charles abdicated in 1555-56, dividing the Habsburg territories between his brother Emperor Ferdinand I and his son Philip II of Spain, Italy was part of the latter's inheritance. Spain remained the dominant power in Italy until Austria replaced it after the War of the Spanish Succession (1701-14). In the 18th century some areas of Italy achieved independence. Savoy (the Kingdom of Sardinia after 1720) annexed Sardinia and portions of Lombardy. In 1735 the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies became an ind … [Click Below for Full Description]

[RENNEFORT, Urbain Souchu de] [c1630-1689]
Paris: Arnoul Seneuze and Daniel Hortemels, 1688., 1688. small 4to. pp. 8 p.l., 402, [2]privilege. 3 engraved headpieces. woodcut title vignette, ornaments & initials. modern vellum bds. (2 headpieces shaved, repaired tear in Hh2 – no loss). First Collected Edition. Rennefort was secretary of the Compagnie Française de L'Orient. In 1665 he was charged with provisioning and inspecting the colony of Fort-Dauphin, governed since 1663 by Chamargon. Rennefort arrived to find the colony in desolation and misery and vainly attempted to re-establish order and peace with the natives. His account was originally published in 1668 under the title Relation du Premier Voyage de la Compagnie des Indes Orientales en L'Île des Madagascar ou Dauphine. It has here been greatly expanded to include an account of a subsequent French voyage to Madagascar undertaken by Mondevergue, Governor-General and Admiral of ‘La France Orientale', with a description of the latter's visit to Brazil (Pernambuco and Olinda), and an account of a further voyage by de Faye from Madagascar to Ceylon, Goa, Calcutta and Surat. Together the accounts provide an important history of the first efforts of the French to establish themselves in Madagascar as a base for their East India operations, and contain interesting details regarding the religion, manners and customs of the native inhabitants of the country and the establishment and history of the Compagnie Française de L'Orient.

Romae: Joannis Jacobi Komarek, 1688. 4to. 39 pp. Giovanni Ciampini (1633?-98) studied law and was subsequently appointed "Magister" at the Apostolic Chancery, thus providing him with a secure job (i.e., sinecure) and allowing him to devote himself to scholarship, as for example, here in his studies of papal biographies and the letters from Pius II to Charles II of France. Both works are printed in roman type with large woodcut initials featuring cherubs and each has its title-page printed in black and red. The Examen is divided into two parts, each with its own collation and pagination, with the second part being "Sanctae romanae ecclesiae bibliothecariorum catalogus, iuxta chronologicum ordinem. . . ." Evidence of readership: In the first part of the Examen an early reader has underlined in sepia ink passages or phrases s/he found significant but added no marginalia. Contemporary vellum. Bookplate removed from front pastedown. Very good copies of both titles. Evidence of readership as above.

Not Given, 1688. Book. Good+. Hardcover. Not Given. This pamphlet, 16 pages, collated in quarto has been put into hard navy boards with a leather spine label lettered in gilt.

There is a tiny penned note at the last sheets top. While all text is reasonably legible, the bottom edge of the pages are chipped gently up almost to the texts lower extremity. Margins at top and side average 3/4 inch. Age darkening and graying are present throughout, and the text is quite edgeworn as may seem obvious from the bottoms description. Book measures 9 x 7".

Published anonymously by Brown it was a satire on John Dryden. In 1688 he published the first of the satires which brought him notice: Reason of Mr Bayes Changing his Religion, a fierce though entertaining and witty anti-Dryden pamphlet. He returned to attack Dryden, under the pseudonym Dudley Tomkinson, in subsequently published parts to this work, and on many other occasions. His satire was typically directed at a handful of targets, whom he attacked repeatedly, often in epigrams. After Dryden: Traitor to God, and rebel to the pen, Priest-ridden poet, perjur'd son of Ben ('To Mr Dryden on his Conversion') the most frequent was Sir Richard Blackmore: Thine is the only muse in British ground Whose satire tickles and whose praises wound.

PASCAL, Blaise
London: Jacob Tonson, 1688. First Edition. calf. Near Fine, complete copy of this classic. The First Edition in English of Pascal's classic Les Pensees (1665). Octavo bound in early calf neatly rebacked at a later date in a slightly lighter shade of leather. Complete with front and rear blanks: [42], 375, [1] pages. The French mathematician and theologian, who invented the first digital calculator, wrestled with the inability of reason to understand God. His work with Fermat on the nature of probability presaged the development of modern decision theory, on the basis of which he argued that belief in God, although not rational, is a good bet: "Le coeur a ses raisons que le raison ne connait point" (The heart has its reasons that reason does not know at all.). Pascal died painfully at the age of 39 from what was likely cancer.

Olfert Dapper (1635 - 1689) was a Dutch physician, writer and expert on Africa. He was born in Amsterdam around 1635.
