TAYLOUR, Charles
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 loc … [Click Below for Full Description]

A portion of the library, including this volume, was acquired by Baron von Lassberg. The Lassberg collection of post-incunabula was sold en bloc to an Anglo-American bookselling consortium in 1999.

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.

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).

[Anon]
[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]

Gervaise, Nicolas
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Additional engraved title-page, 50 EXCEPTIONALLY FINE engraved views, amps and plans of Italy, including two magnificent folding panoramas of Rome and Venice, 41 of which are double page and or folding and mounted on guards; and three double-page maps and views of Koenigreich Morea (one or two leaves with light scattered spotting, a few pale marginal stains). 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.

Ciampini, Giovanni Giustino
Romae: Joannis Jacobi Komarek 4to. [8] ff., 120, 119, [1] pp.. 1688 [also bound in, the same author's] Parergon ad examen libri pontificalis,sive, epistola Pii II. ad Carolum VII. regem Franciae ab haereticis deprauata, & à Launoiana calumnia vindicata.... 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.

London: 1688: Jacob Tonson. Printed: 1688. 1631-1700 Quarto, 12 3/4 x 7 1/25 inches. First edition. Modern quarter morocco gilt, a fine, tall and clean unpresssed copy with a few minor spots, few uncut lower edges, and complete with the Imprimatur leaf. This copy comes from the Brett-Smith Collection. Although we have handled a copy in 1969 and two more in 1976, this is the sole example we have seen since then and well may be one of the last and nicest to come on the market for the foreseeable future. The Prince mentioned on the title was James Edward Stuart known as "The Old Pretender" and whose father, James II, was deposed in the Glorious Revolution of 1688.

Halifax, George Savile, Marquis Of
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. The above grade may be thought of as a compromise between the books newish covers, pastedowns and endsheets and the very aged, rough text. Previous owner has penciled Halifax's name, Wing # H291, and the date 1688 at top of sheet number 1, which consists of title and text only. No cover sheet or printing/data, date are present. 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". The navy boards have a crisp, unbumped, newish appearance..
