SELDEN, John
1689. SELDEN, John. Table Talk: being The Discourses of John Seldon Esq; or His Sence Of Various Matters of Weight and High Consequence Relating Especially to Religion and State. London: for E. Smith, 1689. FIRST EDITION. 1 vol., (ii)60pp., complete, additional engraved frontis portrait plate (not called for) of Selden supplied from his 1672 edition of "Titles of Honor", bound in 19th. century full paneled calf, gilt lettered red morocco spine label, internally clean and bright, rubbing to head and foot of spine with some loss, hinges rubbed, a VERY GOOD copy. Selden's best known work. J. H. B. Masterman writes concerning it: "It is full of quaint humor and pleasant satire, combined with much admirable common sense. Many of the remarks in the volume indicate Selden's strong resentment against religious bigotry and intolerance, but there is no malice in the whimsical anecdotes, and allusions in which the book abounds. Altogether, the 'Table-Talk' shows Selden as a genial, shrewd, and sensible observer of men and things, whose mind had neither been soured by theological controversies, nor warped by legal studies." Coleridge writes: "There is more weighty bullion sense in this book than I ever found in the same number of pages of any uninspired writer... O! to have been with Selden over his glass of wine, making every accident and outlet and a vehicle of wisdom." Who we are - D&D Galleries was founded in 1985.

Robert Gould
R. Bentley, 1689. Condition: Good Plus. 16mo, (6.75" x 4.5") Half-calf over non-pareil marbled boards.Outer spine lacking but binding tight. Lacks pp. 27-30, which, according to the table of contents should be "Sylvia Perjured", but no pages appear cut out, perhaps rather neglected to originally be bound-in. The later -- probably 19th century rebinding resulted in some over-trimming of the top-of-page titles. Interior very, clean, but for some centuries-old inked signatures, including a signed name (Edey E?gar Smith??), followed by her flyleaf-rhyme warning, dated 1793, nearly a century after the book's publication: "Don't steal this book for fear of shame for year you see the oner name" -- most likely a schoolchild's rendition of a then-popular flyleaf rhyme found on a bible in Concord, Mass: "Steal Not this book / for Fear of Shame / for Here You See / the Owner['s] Name (Folklore and Book Culture, by Kevin J. Haynes). 310 pages. Title page pasted onto blank page. Boards show edgewear but very good. No Publisher stated [R.Bentley]. Stated "Printed and to be sold by most booksellers in London and Westminster." (Watson NCBEL 475). Robert Gould [ca. 1660-1709] was born in poverty, worked as a footman to the wealthy, and later, after achieving some success writing, worked as a schoolteacher. His early poetry was at least somewhat influenced by Juvenal, but when Gould published "Love Given Over..", his baldly misogynistic diatribe, he far surpassed the relatively tame Satirist whose style he at least drew upon. Gould used his writing to win his independence in the most literal … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ciacconius, Petrus (i.e., Pedro Chocón)
Amstelaedami: Apud Henricum Wetstenium, 1689. Fifth edition of DE TRICLINO; third edition of DE TINTINABULIS (but the first to include Magis' treatise on the rack). CIACCONIUS: Printed title and dedication in red and black; [12, including additional engraved title], 445, [23, Index] pp.; 6 leaves of plates (5 folding), and numerous fulll-page engravings. MAGIUS: [24, including additional engraved title], 396, [14, Index] pp., 3 engraved plates (2 folding), and numerous full-page engravings. 1 vols. 12mo. Roman Gastronomy, Bell Ringing, and Torture. Pedro Chocón, also known as Petrus Ciacconius, (1526-1581) was a professor of Greek at the university of Salamanca who specialized in classical history. The headline text in this volume, De Triclinio, literally "on the dining room," examines the dining habits and customs of ancient Rome, with chapters on food and drink, etiquette and table dressing. Chocón's text is accompanied by an appendix by Fulvio Orsini. Orsini, the illegitimate son of a Knight Hospitaller of the famous Roman Orsini family, was an Italian humanist who specialized in editing and appendix-writing and befriended the painter El Greco. The De Triclinio is here bound with two treatises, the De Tintinnabulis and De Equuleo, by Girolamo Maggi, also known as Hieronymus Magius. Maggi was an Italian polymath who focused his efforts on military history and Roman burial customs and was captured by the Ottoman Turks when Cyprus was invaded in 1571. He wrote these two treatises in prison. De Tintinnabulis, on bell ringing and carillons, is often overlooked in favor of the … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Printed for the author, and are to be sold by Richard Baldwin in the Old-Baily, 1689. London: Printed for the author, and are to be sold by Richard Baldwin in the Old-Baily, 1689. First edition. [viii], 325, [3] pp., with separate part title-pages. 8vo. Contemporary dark-blue morocco, covers tooled in gilt to a cottage-roof design with small floral tools and volutes, spine richly gilt with small floral tools in six compartments with raised bands, a.e.g., comb-marbled endpapers. Wear to extremities with tissue repairs along joints. First edition. [viii], 325, [3] pp., with separate part title-pages. 8vo. First edition in a fine contemporary cottage-roof binding of this collection of tracts by the clergyman and Whig pamphleteer Samuel Johnson (1649-1703). Following the publication of A Humble and Hearty Address to All English Protestants in this Present Army (1686), in which he urged Protestant troops to refuse orders under James II, Johnson was flogged, pilloried and imprisoned. Johnson was pardoned and his punishment deemed "cruel and illegal" by Parliament following the ascension of William and Mary. The present work, which collects tracts mostly written while in prison, is dedicated to William III and was published after Johnson's release. This copy in an attractive example of the Restoration cottage-roof style. It belongs to a group of a dozen or so bindings that Howard Nixon attributes to a binder "Probably not Robert Steel" - so-named because of a former misattribution to Steel (cf.

FIRST EDITION. G&M 3216. The first important book on pulmonary tuberculosis, and the first description of anorexia nervosa (in the first chapter) with the characteristic triad of loss of appetite, amenorrhoea, and extreme wasting without lassitude. Morton's book involved "the first application of the principles of pathology to the study of pulmonary tuberculosis. Morton showed that the formation of tubercles is a necessary part of the development of this lung disease, and pointed out that the tubercles often heal spontaneously. He noted the enlargement of the tracheal and bronchial glands in cases of pulmonary tuberculosis" (G&M).Wing M2831. Major, Classic descriptions of disease, pp. 61-63. Norman Catalogue 1555.

Abraham de Wicquefort
Cologne: Pierre Marteau, 1689. Written in French Written while the author was imprisoned, the collection contains both parts one and two of L'Ambassadeur et ses Fonctions, Reflaxions sur Les Memoires Pour Les Ambassadeurs et Rosponse Au Ministre Prisonnier and Discours Historique de L'election de L'Empereur et des Electeurs de L'Empire. Featuring illuminated capitals. Wicqufort was an intelligencer, gazetteer and a diplomat of the second order who is remembered more for what he wrote than for his other accomplishments. Born in Holland, Wicquefort nevertheless spent most of his diplomatic career in Paris. Here he served as resident of the Elector of Brandenburg-Prussia from 1626 until 1658, when, having fallen foul of Mazarin, he was first briefly imprisoned in the Bastille and then expelled. Invited to The Hague by John de Witt, the Grand Pensionary of Holland, Wicquefort was employed as a translator for the States General but chiefly as the Grand Pensionary\'s special secretary for French correspondence. In 1675 Wicquefort, who had in the previous year also secured the appointment of resident in Holland of the Duke of Brunswick-Luneburg-Celle, was accused by his enemies of selling state secrets. He was tried by the Court of Holland and, despite his plea of diplomatic immunity, imprisoned for life on the grounds that he remained a Dutch national in the paid service of its government to which he had taken an oath of secrecy. Sent, like Grotius before him, to the prison of Loevestein (though he escaped to Celle in 1679), he devoted his time to furious writing. First published … [Click Below for Full Description]

SAINT-EVREMOND (OU SAINT-EVREMONT) Charles de
- Chez Claude Barbin, A Paris 1689, In-4 (18,5x25cm), (4) 462pp. (2), relié. - Nouvelle édition, rare. Seule édition in-4 des oeuvres de Saint-Evremont. Chiffre fleuronné de Barbin en page de titre. Les premières oeuvres meslées ont paru en 1668, sans que le contenu des pièces soit semblable d'un volume à l'autre. Barbin éditera ainsi plusieurs recueils intitulés Oeuvres meslées en ajoutant parfois de nouvelles pièces. Bandeaux, culs-de-lampe et lettrines d'ornement. Privilège de 1688. Cette édition est souvent présentée comme une originale et peut-être certains textes le sont-ils ici ; en tous les cas, Barbin a eu besoin d'un nouveau privilège pour éditer son ouvrage. Reliure en plein veau marbré et granité d'époque. Dos à nerfs richement orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin tabac. Un léger manque au mors supérieur en tête, un second au mors inférieur en queue. Dorures estompées par endroits. Traces de frottements. Bel exemplaire, d'une bonne fraîcheur. Ex libris manuscrit Abbaye de Contigny en page de titre. Voici ce que Brunet écrit sur l'auteur : "Saint-Evremont n'a attaché son nom à aucun ouvrage important, mais presque tous ses écrits se distinguent par un style original, pas des aperçus plein de finesse, et par des critiques piquantes." Cette édition contient 38 textes ou parties. D'après l'avis de Barbin, certains paraissent pour la première fois. Les premières éditions, selon Brunet, ne contenanient que 11 ou 12 parties dans un volume petit in-12. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] New edition, rare.

GUILLERAGUES (Gabriel de) ].
A Paris, chez Jacques Le Febvre, 1689. in-12. 5ff. 378pp. 3ff. Plein veau brun, dos à nerfs orné (reliure de l'époque). Edition Originale d'une grande rareté de cet ouvrage posthume publié sous le voile de l'anonymat, comme tous les ouvrages de l'écrivain bordelais Gabriel de Guilleragues (1628-1685). L'auteur démasqué des célèbres 'Lettres Portugaises' (1669) était mort à Constantinople où il occupait des fonctions de dipomate. Les travaux de Guy Turbet-Delof et Paul Sebag ont éclairé dans les années 1980 la paternité et l'importance de cet ouvrage méconnu qui posait un jalon entièrement nouveau dans l'histoire des arguments contre l'esclavage, avec le premier plaidoyer antiesclavagiste "absolu" contenant une réfutation de la justification de l'esclavage par le droit de la guerre. "Cette réfutation aura une belle postérité, notamment chez Montesquieu et J. J. Rousseau. On ne lui connaît pas d'antécédents. Elle avait pour support littéraire une tirade de deux pages mise dans la bouche d'un certain Ali Bey. C'est l'œil de l'oignon. Il se niche dans une petite nouvelle de quarante pages ( ) elle-même enchassée dans une 'Histoire de Tunis' de près de quatre cents pages, importante chronique de la dynastie beylicale des Mouradides" (Turbet-Delof). "Depuis Aristote, les Romains et les légistes espagnols qui faisaient découler l'esclavage de la nature, et depuis les grands juristes Grotius et Pufendorf qui le tenaient indissociables du droit de guerre ( ) l'esclavage avait été vaillamment dénoncé par le grand dominicain espagnol Bartholomé de Las Casas, et autrement par Montaigne … [Click Below for Full Description]

"The Bill of Rights, also known as the English Bill of Rights, is an Act of the Parliament of England that sets out certain basic civil rights and clarifies who would be next to inherit the Crown. It received the Royal Assent on 16 December 1689 and is a restatement in statutory form of the Declaration of Right presented by the Convention Parliament to William III and Mary II in February 1689, inviting them to become joint sovereigns of England. The Bill of Rights lays down limits on the powers of the monarch and sets out the rights of Parliament, including the requirement for regular parliaments, free elections, and freedom of speech in Parliament. It sets out certain rights of individuals including the prohibition of cruel and unusual punishment and reestablished the right of Protestants to have arms for their defence within the rule of law. Furthermore, the Bill of Rights described and condemned several misdeeds of James II of England.

Venezia, 1689. - RARA PRIMA EDIZIONE - Incisa da Pietro Ridolfi per l'abate Coronelli, questa rara pianta della città viene per la prima volta pubblicata in "Citta, Fortezze e, Isole, e Porti principlai dell'Europa in Pianta et in Elevatione, Descritte, e Publicate Ad uso dell'Accademia Cosmografica degli Argonauti dal Padre Maestro Coronelli Lettore, e Cosmografo della Serenissima Republica di Venezia" edito da Domenico Padovani inel 1689. opera dalla quale questo esemplare è tratto. Contrariamente a quanto dichiarato da Marigliani, questa è la prima edizione della pianta della città, e non quella che reca la data 1698 (oltre una ricca cornice ornamentale), pubblicata in onore del Duca di Parma Francesco Farnese. Si basa, come indicato da Scaccia Scarafoni, sulla piccola pianta del Falda. Tuttavia si tratta di una derivazione arbitraria, con una raffigurazione in alzato solo di pochi edifici principali. Il grande cartiglio con il titolo, sproporzionato, contiene gli stemmi dei XIV rioni. Meraviglioso esamplare, con grandi margini, di questa rara pianta. - THE RARE FIRST STATE - Plan map, with some large buildings in bird's-eye view. Text on tablet at lower right, with coats of arms of Rome and its rioni. Oriented with east at top. Relief conveyed pictorially. Reduced copy of Falda's small plan of Rome, published 1667.

FARVACQUES, Robert de (attributed to) and Johannes SCHRODER.
Blake, p. 143; STCN 227702735; Vandewiele, Geschiedenis van de pharmacie in België, p. 170; Wellcome III, p. 10. Enlarged third edition of a comprehensive work on the preparation of medicines, also a handbook for apothecaries, erroneously attributed to the Belgian physician Robert de Farvacques (d. 1689), physician to Charles the Second of Spain. The first two parts are divided into five "books", each divided into several chapters. The first book is an introduction to pharmacology, describing the medicinal properties plants, animals and minerals and when to gather and prepare them. The second book lists different preparation methods of simple medicines and the third book of compound medicines. The fourth book deals with the useful instruments and tools for physicians and apothecaries. The fifth book, which occupies the entire second part, is devoted to the preparation of waters, oils, plasters, balsams, pills, etc. The five plates in the second part show furnaces, pans, kettles, and other useful instruments for preparing these medicines. The third part, not present in the first and second edition, was compiled by the Dutch apothecary Johannes Schroder (ca. 1680-1746) and lists numerous simple medicines (roots, herbs, shrubs, seeds, fruits, resins, etc., animal products, minerals), mentioning where they can be found, how to recognize them and how to determine which are best suited to be used in medicine. He also mentions the various names which are in use for the same plant. Included at the end is a treatise by the German botanist Johann Philipp Breyne (1680-1764) on the gin … [Click Below for Full Description]

Abraham de Wicquefort
Cologne: Pierre Marteau, 1689. Written in French Written while the author was imprisoned, the collection contains both parts one and two of L'Ambassadeur et ses Fonctions, Reflaxions sur Les Memoires Pour Les Ambassadeurs et Rosponse Au Ministre Prisonnier and Discours Historique de L'election de L'Empereur et des Electeurs de L'Empire. Featuring illuminated capitals. Wicqufort was an intelligencer, gazetteer and a diplomat of the second order who is remembered more for what he wrote than for his other accomplishments. Born in Holland, Wicquefort nevertheless spent most of his diplomatic career in Paris. Here he served as resident of the Elector of Brandenburg-Prussia from 1626 until 1658, when, having fallen foul of Mazarin, he was first briefly imprisoned in the Bastille and then expelled. Invited to The Hague by John de Witt, the Grand Pensionary of Holland, Wicquefort was employed as a translator for the States General but chiefly as the Grand Pensionary\'s special secretary for French correspondence. In 1675 Wicquefort, who had in the previous year also secured the appointment of resident in Holland of the Duke of Brunswick-Luneburg-Celle, was accused by his enemies of selling state secrets. He was tried by the Court of Holland and, despite his plea of diplomatic immunity, imprisoned for life on the grounds that he remained a Dutch national in the paid service of its government to which he had taken an oath of secrecy. Sent, like Grotius before him, to the prison of Loevestein (though he escaped to Celle in 1679), he devoted his time to furious writing. First published … [Click Below for Full Description]

Engraved map on two sheets joined, 48 engraved views pasted to upper and lower border, text to left and right border, slight loss to text. Large engraved plan of the Rhine and the surrounding countryside from its mouth to Basel. Surrounding the map are 48 bird's-eye views of towns and cities within the Rhineland and its environs, together with two columns of text to the left and right margins, providing information upon the towns and cities. The work was produced during the early years of the War of the Grand Alliance, fought between Louis XIV and a European coalition trying to quash his territorial ambitions. It marks the moment when Louis's army crossed the Rhine as a prelude to invading Philippsburg, the key post between Luxembourg (annexed in 1684) and Strasbourg (seized in 1681), and other Rhineland towns. This pre-emptive strike was intended to intimidate the German states into accepting his conditions, set out in his ‘Mémoire de raisons', while encouraging the Ottoman Turks to continue their own struggle with the Emperor in the east. The action was initially successful: Louis took control of the Rhineland from south of Mainz to the Swiss border. However, rather than capitulating, his actions galvanised the League of Augsburg into action. Louis soon reali … [Click Below for Full Description]

ROCQUE, John
523 by 650mm. (20.5 by 25.5 inches).. Engraved plan, scale bars and key to architectural and natural features, lower left and right. Kensington Palace was originally the suburban residence of Lord Chancellor Flinch, Earl of Nottingham, and it was known as Nottingham House. It was set in a large deer park that Henry VIII used for hunting. In 1689 the house was bought by William III who turned it into Kensington Palace. The building was enlarged from designs by Sir Christopher Wren; the gardens, under instructions of Queen Mary, were landscaped by royal gardeners and were transformed with paths and flower-beds at right angles, in formal Dutch patterns, so as to make William feel at home. It wasn't until 1727, when Queen Caroline moved into the palace, that the Dutch gardens were replaced by the current Charles Bridgman design, which included the round pond, the Broad Walk and the Temple Lodge, as well as the planting of several thousand trees. The gardens were opened on Saturdays to anyone who was respectably dressed. Rocque's plan shows the full extent of the work implemented by Queen Caroline on the gardens. It also shows the grand mansions along Kensington Gore and the buildings along the High Street and Church Lane. Rocque, a French Huguenot, emigrated with the rest of his family to London in the 1730s, where he began to ply his trade as a surveyor of gentleman's estates, and with plans of Kensington Gardens, and Hampton Court. He is most famous for his magisterial 1746 survey of the city of London, which took nine years to produce. Map Forum, Catalogue of Rocque's Engr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Abraham de Wicquefort
Cologne: Pierre Marteau, 1689. Written in French Written while the author was imprisoned, the collection contains both parts one and two of L'Ambassadeur et ses Fonctions, Reflaxions sur Les Memoires Pour Les Ambassadeurs et Rosponse Au Ministre Prisonnier and Discours Historique de L'election de L'Empereur et des Electeurs de L'Empire. Featuring illuminated capitals. Wicqufort was an intelligencer, gazetteer and a diplomat of the second order who is remembered more for what he wrote than for his other accomplishments. Born in Holland, Wicquefort nevertheless spent most of his diplomatic career in Paris. Here he served as resident of the Elector of Brandenburg-Prussia from 1626 until 1658, when, having fallen foul of Mazarin, he was first briefly imprisoned in the Bastille and then expelled. Invited to The Hague by John de Witt, the Grand Pensionary of Holland, Wicquefort was employed as a translator for the States General but chiefly as the Grand Pensionary\'s special secretary for French correspondence. In 1675 Wicquefort, who had in the previous year also secured the appointment of resident in Holland of the Duke of Brunswick-Luneburg-Celle, was accused by his enemies of selling state secrets. He was tried by the Court of Holland and, despite his plea of diplomatic immunity, imprisoned for life on the grounds that he remained a Dutch national in the paid service of its government to which he had taken an oath of secrecy. Sent, like Grotius before him, to the prison of Loevestein (though he escaped to Celle in 1679), he devoted his time to furious writing. First published … [Click Below for Full Description]
