        SUSPIROS DE LA FRANCIA ESCLAVA que aspira a ponerse en libertad (Memoria primera, segunda y tercera).

      S.l.n.d. (Barcelona ?, 1689). - in-4. 55pp. Cartonnage moderne. Rarissime édition espagnole des "Soupirs de la France Esclave" ouvrage qui proclamait avec force le principe de la souveraineté du peuple et dont la police de Louis XIV détruisit l'édition française systématiquement. Il a été attribué au protestant Pierre Jurieu et aussi, avec plus de probabilité semble-t-il, à l'historien et théologien Michel Levassor, né vers 1648 mort exilé en Angleterre en 1718. Les "Soupirs" parurent en français sous forme de mémoires, au nombre de quinze, entre le 10 Août 1689 et le 15 Septembre 1690. La collection complète est très rare. Cette édition espagnole se compose seulement des trois premiers mémoires comme en témoigne l'exemplaire conservé à la Biblioteca Nacional, identique au nôtre. Chaque mémoire a un titre particulier : "De la Opression de la Iglesia, de los Parlamentos de la Nobleza y de las Ciudades"; "De la Opression de los Pueblos, de los Impuestos y del mal exemplo de la Hazienda" et "De los tristes efectos de la Potencia Arbitraria y Despotica de la Corte de Francia: que esta Potencia es tan despotica como el Gran Senor de los Turcos". La publication de cet ouvrage en langue espagnole sans nom d'auteur, de traducteur et sans mention de lieu ni nom d'imprimeur, n'était peut-être pas sans rapport avec la politique intérieure de l'Espagne. Le traducteur anonyme termine ainsi sa présentation de l'ouvrage:" Protesto que de quanto he visto deste genero de Papeles (y no ha sido poco) ninguno me ha llenado ni admirado mas que estas incomparables Mémoirias : no dudando yo dezir, que si de alguno se puede esperar utilidad, yà haziendo abrir los ojos para la enmienda à los culpados de lo que reprehende, o yà alentando los oprimidos à esfuerçar quanto pudieren de su parte la restauracion de la libertad; no parace imaginable que otras producciones del ingenio humano puedan conducir y ayudar à tan justificado fin". Rousseurs. Bon exemplaire. Aucun exemplaire au NUC. Palau, 325789.

        Voyages de Jean Ovington: faits à Surate, et en d'autres lieux de l'Asie et de l'Afrique

      "Having joined the East India Company as a chaplain, Ovington was assigned to the Company's vessel Benjamin for a voyage to the East Indies in 1689. Ovington stopped briefly in Bombay and then settled at Surat for two and a half years. His narrative describes Bombay as a sink of debauchery filled with whores and drunkards. Of Surat Ovington commented at length of the Mughal influence, on religious and cultural characteristics of the Hindus and Parsees, and the nature of the fakeer or Mohammedan religious mendicant. In passing Ovington described and defended the drinking of tea for which he was later attacked by Alexander Hamilton. Of the greatest interest, however, is Ovington's outline of the organization and operation of the English factory at Surat. Of the early narratives, Ovington's possesses greater interest and far wittier prose". (Riddick)  These two volumes, respectively 323 pp and 318 pp, comprise the first French translation from the original English of 1698. Both volumes retain their original calf bindings with tooled and gilt spines, marbled endpapers, and red-stained text block edges.  The bindings show wear and Volume I shows loss at the spine ends, but the bindings are intact and unrestored.  The contents are remarkably clean, crisp, and bright with no spotting.

        De Jure Belli ac Pacis Libri Tres, in quibus Jus Naturae & Gentium, item Juris Publici praecipua explicantur. Cum Annotatis Auctoris, ex postrema ejus ante obitum cura. Accesserunt Annotata in Epistolam Pauli ad Philemonem, Dissertatio Mari Libero.

      Sumptibus Abrahami à Someren,, Amstelodami, 1689 - In-8° (200x115mm), pp. (10), XXXIV, 904, (16), 32, (108) di indici bicolonni degli scrittori menzionati nel testo e delle cose notabili, legatura coeva p. pergamena rigida con unghie e tracce di titolo manoscritto in antico alla cuffia superiore. Tagli azzurri, sguardie in decoro policromo a piuma di pavone. Ritratti calcografico di Grozio all'antiporta e frontespizio egualmente in calcografia con varie figurazioni allegoriche. Titolo in rosso e nero con marca tipografica con una sfera armillare tra il Tempo ed Ercole ed il motto "Indefessus agendo". Capilettera ornati, privilegi preliminari e riproduzione della dedica di Grozio a Luigi XIII; il testo di Grozio reca, in calce, su due colonne, le annotazioni di Johannes Fredericus Gronovius (1611-1671). Ottimo esemplare con usuali quanto leggere bruniture. Firme ottocentesche e novecentesche di privato possesso. Bella ristampa di Amsterdam del capolavoro di Grozio, opera fondante del giusnaturalismo moderno (l'opera occupa le pp. 1-903), seguita da altre opere del grande giurista olandese: "Commentatio in Epistolam Pauli Apostoli ad Philemonem", "De Mari Libero", "De Aequitate, Indulgentia, et Facilitate, Liber singularis" (il trattato era stato dato alla luce da Nicolas Blankaart; "Nicolaus Blancardus, Belga-Leidensis, è codice autoris descripsit, & vulgavit"). Il "De Jure Belli" fu steso da Grozio nel periodo del suo esilio parigino e dato alle stampe nel 1625 per i tipi di Nicolas Buon; in una serrata indagine sui fondamenti dell'autorità statale Grozio confuta le basi teologiche della stessa e, in un'età lacerata dalle guerre di religione, cerca invece di porla su principi razionali e naturali. Il diritto pubblico, nella sistematizzazione di Grozio, diventa una scienza deduttiva simile alla matematica; lo stato di natura, con l'associazione tra individui fondata sulle mere leggi naturali, precede sempre e comunque lo stato politico, che, tuttavia, nel suo costituirsi, deve ispirarsi al modello naturale rispettandone le leggi di base. Scrive il P.M.M.: "This wat the first attempt to lay down a principle of right, and a basis for society and government, outside Church and Scripture". Fra le scritture che seguono il "De Jure Belli ac Pacis" è particolarmente importante il "De Mari Libero", grande classico del diritto marittimo internazionale impresso per la prima volta nel 1609. L'opera, importantissima summa delle teorie groziane sulla libertà di navigazione e di commercio, fu concepita come capitolo del "De Jure Praedae", un libro scritto nel 1606 ma rimasto inedito sino al 1868. Avvalendosi di raffinate argomentazioni attinte alle teorie giusnaturalistiche, Grozio caldeggia la libertà di navigazione delle nazioni, segnatamente dell'Olanda, i cui pescatori operavano in prossimità delle coste inglesi, e della Compagnia Olandese delle Indie Orientali, ingaggiata in una disputa territoriale nei Caraibi con i mercanti portoghesi. Da notare che il volume fu aspramente attaccato da Selden nel suo "Mare Clausum". In seguito la disputa avrebbe avuto importanti implicazioni economiche, in quanto la Repubblica Olandese sostenne l'idea del libero scambio nonostante avesse imposto il proprio monopolio sul commercio della noce moscata e dei chiodi di garofano alle isole Molucche, mentre L'Inghilterra nel 1651 adottò il Navigation Act, con il quale consentì l'ingresso nel paese solo dei prodotti trasportati dalle navi inglesi; tali dispute connerciali condussero allo scoppio della Prima Guerra Anglo-Olandese (1652 -1654).

        [Title in Greek.] Cebetis Thebani Tabula, Græce & Latine, multis in locis restituta ex MSS. codicibus, unde etiam Græca in fine reposita ab Jacobo Gronovio, cuius accedunt notæ & emendationes

      Amsterdam: apud Henricum Westenium 1689 First edition as edited by the Dutch scholar Jakob Gronovius. This famous allegory of the life of man, known as "Pinax" or the "Table" of Cebes and long popular as a school text, was originally ascribed to a Pythagorean follower of Socrates; it is now assigned to a later date, as it contains element of the Stoic philosophy of the Roman empire. This edition by Gronovius, making use of several additional manuscripts, was the best critical text yet produced. Contemporary calf, panelled in blind, brown morocco label. . Small octavo. Parallel Greek and Latin texts. The Latin translation by Wolf was first opubkished in 1560. Joints a bit rubbed. Ink signature on the front flyleaf of Robert Raymond, dated 1692 (see DNB); Raymond was then a student at Christ's College, Cambridge, and went on to become Lord Chief Justice. A very good copy of an uncommon book. Gronovius was an industrious classicist, who produced a massive thesaurus of Greek antiquities in thirteen folio volumes (1687-1702), and became involved in a dispute with Bentley. Dibdin quotes Harwood as describing his edition of Cebes as "very correct and beautiful.

        Tabula Exhibens Novam Franciam et Louisianam

      [Nuremberg: 1689]. Engraved map, 7¾ x 12¾ inches. Near fine. Matted and laid into a black cloth box, with black morocco lettering piece. An extremely rare German edition of Father Louis Hennepin's landmark map of North America, a foundation for the mapping of Louisiana, the Mississippi and the Great Lakes. This version of the map was issued with the 1689 Nuremberg edition of Hennepin's work, and the cartouche translated from French into Latin. As in the original, the German map shows the significant new details of the upper headwaters of the Mississippi. By removing the extraneous European continent, the German map focuses solely on North America and even tends to magnify the Great Lakes region. Hennepin's map is the first to use the name Louisiana, and the Atlantic Ocean is called Mare Canadense. "[It shows] for the first time La Louisiane, Sault de St. Antoine de Padou (on the site of present-day Minneapolis), and Lac de Pleurs [Lake of Tears], present Lake Pepin. A faint dotted line indicating the surmised course of the lower Mississippi River is approximately located" (Schwartz & Ehrenberg). This line is of particular note. As Wheat points out, La Salle and later French cartographers recorded the course of the river as progressing further west, making Hennepin's map remarkably accurate in this regard for its time. As a significant version of one of the best cartographical depictions to that date of the Great Lakes region and the upper Mississippi, it is surprising that this German edition of Hennepin's map has been overlooked by most carto-bibliographers. "An important cartographic stepping stone...[presenting] vast new knowledge" (Wheat). (For the 1683 edition of the map): Schwartz & Ehrenberg, p.130; Wheat 62. (For the 1689 text and map): European Americana 689/94; Howes H415; JCB (4):207; Harrisse (NF) 163; Sabin 31364.

A faint dotted line indicating the surmised course of the lower Mississippi River is approximately located" - Schwartz & Ehrenberg. This line is of particular note. As Wheat points out, La Salle and later French cartographers recorded the course of the river as progressing further west, making Hennepin's map remarkably accurate in this regard for its time. As a significant version of one of the best cartographical depictions to that date of the Great Lakes region and the upper Mississippi, it is surprising that this German edition of Hennepin's map has been overlooked by most carto-bibliographers. "An important cartographic stepping stone...[presenting] vast new knowledge" - Wheat. An extremely rare edition of a highly important map of North America. 1683 edition of the map: SCHWARTZ & EHRENBERG, p.130. WHEAT TRANSMISSISSIPPI 62. 1689 text and map: EUROPEAN AMERICANA 689/94.

        EXACT COLLECTION OF THE DEBATES OF THE HOUSE OF COMMONS, Held at Westminster, October 21. 1680. Prorogued the Tenth, and Dissolved the Eighteenth of January Following. With the Debates of the House of Commons at Oxford, Assembled March 21. 1680. Also a Just and Modest Vindication of the Proceedings of the Said Parliament

      London: R. Baldwin, 1689. First thus, with the addition of the ‘Just and Modest Vindication’, the less common Baldwin imprint. ‘Just and Modest Vindication’ preceded by separate title-page dated 1689. 8vo, full near contemporary calf, the boards with double fillet-line gilt borders and blind stippled edges, the spine with raised bands double ruled in gilt, one compartment with a brown morocco label lettered in blind. [8], 464 [ie 456, mispaginated as described by Wing] pp. Internally a very nice copy with just expected mellowing or toning, more so on the prelims, in all quite fresh and solid, the binding with some age-wear, the upper hinge cracked with the board nearly detached, lower hinge starting, easily restored. FIRST EDITION. DEBATES OF THE LAST PARLIAMENT OF CHARLES II REIGN ON HIS SUCCESSION AND WHETHER OR NOT JAMES II, A ROMAN CATHOLIC, SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO BECOME KING. The debates were first published by Baldwin in 1680, this 1689 edition is the second printing of the debates, expanded, and is the first to include the Vindication which was in answer to the King’s 1681 dissolution of Parliament. The reprinting was in response to the “Glorious Revolution” in which James II was overthrown by a union of Parliamentarians. The Vindication was probably written by Sir William Jones in collaboration with Lord John Somers and Algernon Sidney, though it has also been ascribed to Robert Ferguson in some sources. Jones was the most famous attorney of his day and had prosecuted the victims of the Oates Plot in 1678. In 1680 he was sent to the House of Commons by Plymouth where he was instrumental in the passing of the Exclusion Bill.

        A Treatise of Monarchy

      London: Richard Baldwin, 1689 Book. Very Good+. Hardcover. 3rd Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. The owners notes and my observation agree with Wing number H3783. This 73 page pamphlet has been placed inside hard red cloth boards, with a gilt lettered black spine label. The boards measure 8'' X 6 1/2'', The text measures 7 3/4'' X 6'' fore-edge to gutter. Collation is primarily quarto. After the restored endsheet (no preliminary sheets appear) is the title page. There is a small penned circled D at the upper right corner. Opposite this in the gutter margin is pencilled "edn., Wing number and placements." Verso title blank, followed by a 2 page TOC. Page 1 through 73 appear next followed by another blank beige replacement endsheet. The text has minimal foxing and two characteristics worth noting. The paper is a bit thinner then customary for the era so the read-thru is more pronounced. Additionally, the top edge is in places 3/8 of an inch to a scant 1/8 of an inch from the top edge of the sheets. Hunton's name does not appear in the text, authorship is given as ''Done by an earnest desirer of his country's peace.'' Printing ''London: printed for, and sold by Richard Baldwin in the old Baily. MDCLXXXIX.'' The grade above maybe thought of as a compromise between the newish boards and the aged text..

        Voyages de Jean Ovington: faits à Surate, et en d'autres lieux de l'Asie et de l'Afrique

      "Having joined the East India Company as a chaplain, Ovington was assigned to the Company's vessel Benjamin for a voyage to the East Indies in 1689. Ovington stopped briefly in Bombay and then settled at Surat for two and a half years. His narrative describes Bombay as a sink of debauchery filled with whores and drunkards. Of Surat Ovington commented at length of the Mughal influence, on religious and cultural characteristics of the Hindus and Parsees, and the nature of the fakeer or Mohammedan religious mendicant. In passing Ovington described and defended the drinking of tea for which he was later attacked by Alexander Hamilton. Of the greatest interest, however, is Ovington's outline of the organization and operation of the English factory at Surat. Of the early narratives, Ovington's possesses greater interest and far wittier prose". (Riddick)  These two volumes, respectively 323 pp and 318 pp, comprise the first French translation from the original English of 1698. Both volumes retain their original calf bindings with tooled and gilt spines, marbled endpapers, and red-stained text block edges.  The bindings show wear and Volume I shows loss at the spine ends, but the bindings are intact and unrestored.  The contents are remarkably clean, crisp, and bright with no spotting.

"From his descriptions of phthisical lungs, it is possible to interpret caseo-nodular, ulcerative, and calcareo-caseus types of tuberculosis, as well as caseous and ulcerative tuberculosis of the kidney" (Long, History of Pathology, pp. 56-57).

Collijn Sveriges bibliografi 1600-talet 1036. Warmholtz Bibliotheca historica Sueo-Gothica 1643: "skada, at et så vackert och på många authentique handlingar grundat arbete icke blifvit fulbordat; fritt från misstag är det ej; men de förringa icke des värde". Med tryckt dedikation till Karl XI. Med hyllningar av J. Columbus och L. Norrmannus. De avslutande opaginerade bladen är en hyllning till Karl XI. Lindroth skriver i sin lärdomshistoria att det var Örnhielms "avsikt att bruka sina samlingar till en grundläggande svensk kyrkohistoria, byggd på urkundernas vittnesbörd. Men bara det första bandet blev färdigt och utgivet [...]. Det omfattar den äldsta tiden från Ansgar till sekelskiftet 1200." Lindroth påpekar liksom Warmholtz att arbetet innehåller misstag, men att författarens lärdom är beundransvärd: "Det skulle dröja länge, innan svensk kyrkohistorisk forskning åter nådde samma nivå som i Örnhielms Historia ecclesiastica"
