Jean Ovington
"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.

Cebes
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.

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."

JAMES STUART:
London: Printed for Simon Burgis 1689.. First edition, folio, (iv), 21, (1) pp. Folding map, outer margin of first two leaves cut close without loss to text, next leaf with soiling to the margin as a result, outer edge of final leaf laid down with some loss but again no loss of text, one paragraph on page 8 censored using type ornaments, modern booklabel of John Prebble, journalist and historian. 20th century quarter calf.A lively work published in support of the notion that James Stuart was illegitimate. The pressure on Queen Mary (James II's second wife) to produce a boy after a series of girls was such that even before the birth her pregnancy was called into doubt. "The warming-pan scandal", so-called after the alleged method that was used to smuggle the false child into the Queen's bedchamber (the route being shown on the map in this work), became a cause celebré for all the King's Protestant opponents.

1689 - Tamaño doble. Papel Fuerte. Enmarronecido en márgenes. Excelente ejemplar. Printed on 2 sheets joined together. Printed on heavy, somewhat browned paper. Some oxidation of paper due to light offsetting of ink. Some marginal spotting. Good dark impression. Very large map of Spain and Portugal, including the Balearic Islands Majorca, Minorca and Ibiza, ornated with a rococo title cartouche. Boundaries outlined in hand colour. The map is fully and richly engraved. Five distance scales within cartouches, and a dedicational cartouche to Le Dauphin. This cartouche is topped with Arms of the Dauphin of France.Reference: Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici, Mor 1. Born in Avignon, Alexis-Hubert Jaillot came to Paris in 1657 with his brother Simon, and both became sculptors. In 1664, Jaillot married the daughter of Nicolas Berey, an established mapmaker, and soon joined his father-in-law in the trade. Within a few years, Jaillot became the successor to Nicolas Sanson, the greatest French mapmaker of the seventeenth century. In 1669, Jaillot undertook the re-engraving, enlarging and re-publishing of the Sanson maps in sheet form and in atlases, sparing no effort to fill the gap in the map trade left by the destruction of Blaeu's printing establishment in Amsterdam in 1672-one of the most productive cartographic establishment in the Netherlands. Jaillot redrew Sanson's maps with many additions and corrections and fresh embellishments. One of his most important works was a magnificent sea atlas, Le Neptune Francois, published in 1693 and compiled in co-operation with Jean Dominique Cas … [Click Below for Full Description]

Traduction de deux essais, sous forme de lettres, parus en 1685 sous les titres suivants : « Of the reconcileableness of specifick medicine to the corpuscular philosophy¿ » et « The advantages of the use of simple medicines ». La traduction a été faite sur l¿édition latine. C¿est un des rares ouvrages de Boyle traduit en français et l¿un des deux ouvrages de l¿auteur consacrés à la pharmacologie. Robert Boyle (1626 ou 1627-1691), scientifique et philosophe d¿origine irlandaise, opposé à l¿alchimie et à la iatrochimie, est l¿un des fondateurs de la méthode expérimentale et de la chimie moderne. Dans cet ouvrage, Boyle cherche à montrer que l¿action des remèdes spécifiques est conciliable avec la philosophie corpusculaire. Il estime qu¿il existe des remèdes spécifiques, capables de juguler les différents symptômes d¿une même affection. Il incite de plus les médecins à privilégier les remèdes simples plutôt que les mélanges, et de bien observer leurs effets, afin de « faire des plus grands progrez dans la connoissance de la matiere medicinale ».

In very good to fine condition. Remains of small paper tag (nineteenth-century?) near foot of spine. (4 ll.), 389 [i.e., 387] pp. Page 387 wrongly numbered 389. *** FIRST EDITION of this tribute to the Franciscan order. A second edition appeared at Coimbra, 1721 (with another issue in 1722). In the course of his treatise the author frequently refers to specific situations in the "Estado da êndia" (i.e., all areas of Portuguese influence in East Africa and Asia), missionary activities, and monks who worked primarily in the East, many of whom were known to the author personally. He also discusses who can become a novice of the order - descendants of Jews, Moors and heretics are excluded, but there is mention of special conditions existing in India, and of exceptions that can be made there for those with some native ancestry (pp. 168-78).

London: Printed for Simon Burgis 1689 - First edition, folio, (iv), 21, (1) pp. Folding map, outer margin of first two leaves cut close without loss to text, next leaf with soiling to the margin as a result, outer edge of final leaf laid down with some loss but again no loss of text, one paragraph on page 8 censored using type ornaments, modern booklabel of John Prebble, journalist and historian. 20th century quarter calf. A lively work published in support of the notion that James Stuart was illegitimate. The pressure on Queen Mary (James II’s second wife) to produce a boy after a series of girls was such that even before the birth her pregnancy was called into doubt. "The warming-pan scandal", so-called after the alleged method that was used to smuggle the false child into the Queen’s bedchamber (the route being shown on the map in this work), became a cause celebré for all the King’s Protestant opponents.

[HENNEPIN, Louis]
[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-bibliograp … [Click Below for Full Description]
