        A Discourse of Humane Reason: With Relation to Matters of Religion

      London: Awnsham Churchill, 1690 First edition. Contemporary sheep with gilt arms on both covers of James Douglas, second duke of Queensberry and first duke of Dover (1662-1711), Secretary of State for Scotland. . Small octavo. Rebacked to style. Ink annotation on front free endpaper, listing the other former owners, including the second, third and fourth Dukes of Buccleuch, army office John Clark Kennedy (1817-1867), and others. Armorial bookplate of Clark Kennedy. Board edges lightly worn in places, but a very good and interesting copy of a rare work. Martin Clifford (1624-1677), the atheist headmaster of the Charterhouse, anonymously published A Treatise on Humane Reason in 1674. It called for a critical confutation of constituted authority, faith in one's own reasoned convictions, and tolerance toward the beliefs and opinions of others. It caused considerable controversy and was a precursor of Locke's famous Essay (1690). William Popple (1638-1708), the Unitarian minister who later translated Locke's Letter on Toleration from the Latin (1689), published a French translation of Clifford's work in 1682. It was instrumental in spreading the controversy to the continent. The present work was considered of unknown authorship, but is now known to have been written by Popple. It undoubtedly owes much to the ideas of both Clifford and Locke.

        Nova Orbis Tabula, in Lucem Edita, A. F. De Wit. Amstelodami cum Privilegio Potentiss D. Dominorum Ordinum Hollandia et Westrische

      Amsterdam:: De Wit,. c. 1690.. A most attractive double hemisphere map of the world, with smaller polar insets. Handsomely decorated with allegorical vignettes of the four seasons in the border. The first edition of the map is recorded as Shirley 451- he records the 2nd state adding a border & some cherubs to the plate as well as Nova Guinea and Quiri Regio on the left hand hemisphere. This edition, (Shirley 499) is further altered in that California as an island has a pointed tip (instead of a flat top), and by the insertion ot some of the Great Lakes instead of the single open-ended inland sea shown previously. De Wit was granted privilege in 1688, and included a line to that effect under the title. Australia is illustrated post-Tasman, showing the tip of Tasmania & Cape York Peninsula, the full West coast of Australia. The bottom of Cape Horn is the only geographical feature on the Antarctic polar projection. Copper engraving with old color refreshed. Size: 48 x 57 cm. (19 x 22½ in.) [HxW]. Bottom center fold strengthened, with small margin tear strengthened. Overall in very good condition. A most attractive world map. References: Shirley, R.W. (World) 499. See 451 for first edition plate 333.

      Paris: H. Bonnart. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1690. Hardcover. Etchings; Art; We fit archival quality clear acrylic covers for additional protection whenever possible. ; Etching; 1 vol. N. D. [ca. 1690]. Sm. 4to, modern 3/4 crushed scarlet niger morocco leather & marbled bds. , spine gilt; minor wear. With 60 fullpage etchings (incl. Title page ) + 11 mounted etchings after Rosa. From Rosa's Figurine series by Henri Bonnart, and is catalogued as a Rosa imitation at Wallace 134. Title page repaired. Scattered, mostly minor, foxing & smudging. The full suite of 60 etchings is included with plates 54 and 55 being out of sequence but present. The 11 additional plates are tipped in and numbered out of sequence. They are not identical to the same numbered plates amongst the first sixty. I was not able to locate any information and have to assume that the book is extra-illustrated or else the other copies on the market are short. The extra-illustration is particularly probable as the 60 plates are on Japan paper whereas the final 11 are mounted on finely laid paper. The last leaf was made up by gluing two sheets together- the appearance is not unpleasing. The 11 plates are numbered: 19, 5, 29, 15, 24, 25, 4, 10, 25, 9, and 28. Book protected in clear dust jacket. Graphics of volume and a sample etching are available. .

Catalogus stellarum fixarum ex observationibus multorum annorum. Danzig, Johann Zacharias Stoll, 1687. 143-350 pp., (1) f. [And with:] ____. Firmamentum Sobiescianum, sive Uranographia, totum coelum stellatum. Danzig, Johann Zacharias Stoll, 1690 [frontispiece dated 1687]. (1) f., 1 double-page engraved allegorical title dated 1687, 21 pp., 54 double-page engraved plates of the constellations and 2 oversized folding plates of planispheres, in excellent impressions. Rare first edition of Hevelius' star atlas, along with the Introduction (Prodromus) and the catalogue of stars, together as issued: a fundamental text in the history of astronomy and a spectacular illustrated book. The Firmamentum Sobiescianum is considered the most detailed and influential celestial atlas of its time, both in the formation of subsequent atlases and in the production of celestial globes: "Contemporary globes, such as those by G.C. Einmart, and Gerhard and Leonhard Valk, often acknowledge Hevelius as their source. Later constellation outlines and draftmanship also owed much to the Uranographia" (North, DSB VI.364). Warner describes Hevelius as "An outstanding astronomical observer whose private observatory in Danzig (Gdansk) was for many years the best in Europe..." His Uranographia is one of the very few star atlases actually produced by a professional working astronomer of international stature, rather than a map publisher or popularizer of astronomy (Piccolomini, Bayer, Doppelmayr, Homann, Cellarius, etc.). The Catalogus gives the precise position in the sky of each star according to specific mathematical coordinates-information essential to the practicing astronomer-and the Prodromus sets out the technology and methodology associated with producing the catalogue of fixed stars (see Brigham Young, #16). The manuscript of the Prodromus astronomiae was saved from the fire at Hevelius' observatory in 1679-one of the few items to survive from the wide range of the texts and scientific instruments he designed. The star atlas contains 73 constellations, of which 12 are introduced here by Hevelius himself. His discoveries include the Scutum Sobiescianum (the shield of Sobieski, i.e., the shield with which King Jan III of Poland defended Europe against the Turks, and which Hevelius so named to acknowledge the latter's financial support); the "Lynx", a grouping of very faint stars named because one needed the sharp eyes of this animal in order to see them; and the "Sextans", which he called after one of the many astronomical instruments he designed. These names as well as several others coined by Hevelius are still used by astronomers today. The 57 star maps were drawn by the Polish artist Andreas Stech and engraved by Charles de la Haye, though on the basis of his known involvment in making the plates for other works, North has suggested that Hevelius had a hand in these as well. ...................................................................... * Johannes Hevelius and his Catalogue of Stars, 55-58; J.D. North in DSB VI.360-64; Kenney, p. 83; Warner, The Sky Explored, p. 113, n. 8.

        Le Globe Terrestre Representé En Deux Plans-Hemispheres Et En Diverses Autres Figures

      Paris: Jean-Baptiste Nolin, [after 1690]. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour. 18 7/8 x 24 5/8 inches. A very beautiful and finely engraved world map, principally devised by one of the period's greatest cartographers This very fine map is the result of the synergy of the talents of Coronelli and his French colleague Tralage, popularly known as the Sieur de Tillemont. It principally depicts the world in a bi- hemispheric projection, and largely follows the geography represented on Coronelli's celebrated globe of 1688. California is shown to be an island, and in the enigmatic void that lies to the northwest is the 'Strait of Anian' that supposedly forms the western terminus of a presumed Northwest Passage. Beyond the strait, just to the northeast of Japan is the mysterious "Terre de Jessu," that supposedly represents Hokkaido. Much further south, the loosely-defined area that is now known as New Guinea is labelled as the "Terre de Quir," noting on the map that it was discovered in 1606 by the Spanish explorer Ferdinand de Quir. The only major addition here to Coronelli's established geography is the appearance of the Solomon Islands. Surrounding these principal hemispheres are eight diverse hemispheric projections of the world, evincing a playful fascination with mathematics and perspective that anticipated the Enlightenment of the next century. Adorning the two upper corners of the map are a pair of hemispheres capturing the world from an oblique perspective, one centered on Paris, and the other from its diametrically opposite position in the antipodes. Also, in the upper portion of the map, is a pair of hemispheres capturing the world in an ovoid projection, and resting in the spaces in between the two main hemispheres are a pair of projections depicting the world from a perspective centered at the poles. In the lower left corner, the entire world is captured on a projection centered at the North Pole. Most strikingly, in the lower right corner the world is captured in a cordiform, or heart-shaped projection, which since it was first devised during the Renaissance was considered an iconological symbol of various humanist values. Vincenzo Maria Coronelli, a Venetian scholar and Minorite Friar, became one of the most celebrated map and globe makers of his era. Throughout his industrious life he produced more than one-hundred terrestrial and celestial globes, several hundred maps, and a wealth of cartographic publications. In 1683, he completed the Marly Globes for Louis XIV, the largest and most magnificent globes ever made. In 1684 he founded the Academia Cosmografica degli Argonauti, the first geographical society, and was appointed Cosmographer of the Republic of Venice. The present map is the result of the lucrative partnership Coronelli formed in the late 1680s with the prominent Paris cartographer Jean-Baptiste Nolin, who printed editions of Coronelli's maps that flourished on the French market. Coronelli published two atlases, the Atlante Veneto (Venice, 1691) and the Isolario (1696-98), and compiled the first encyclopedia to be arranged alphabetically. This map was first printed in 1690, and the present map is in the second state, as indicated by its dedication which honors Louis Philippeaux de Ponchartrain, the French minister of Finance.

      "Crispin." Pseud of (Raymond Poisson, Parisian actor d.1690). [Original copper plate engraving on paper]. Paris: Audran, ca. 1710 (later impression on laid paper, ca. 1800). After a painting by J. Netscher, engraved by Edelinck. With legend. Plate size 14"x17." A few marginal tears, slight browning. Good impression. This large engraving depicts "Crispin" played by Poisson, in his highly imaginative costume, bowing to the audience with hat in right hand. "Crispin" is the name of the character who was a dutiful captain and son of Scaramouche. The character was invented by Poisson. Poisson was so successful in this role that he began a dynasty of actors who played Crispin in like manner until the mid-18th century.

        Mare Del Sud, detto altrimenti Mare Pacifico

      La carta raffigura le coste occidentali del continente americano, inclusa una curiosa descrizione della California quale un?isola. A Nord una massa di terra non conosciuta, compresa tra il Nord del Giappone e l?Ovest dell?America, viene denominata ?Terra de Iesso?. Sono inoltre raffigurate le rotte che Jacob Lemaire, il primo navigatore che attraversò la Terra del Fuoco dimostrando che non era parte del Polo Sud, percorse tra il 1615 e il 1617. Tuttavia la mappa del Coronelli è particolarmente interessante poiché delinea le coste dell?Australia e della Nuova Zelanda. Una parte di terra detta ?Nuova Hollanda? ed una definita ?Terra d?Antonio Diemens? sono raffigurate, insieme alla Nuova Zelanda, come parte di una terra a Sud, non ben conosciuta e appartenente all?ipotetico continente meridionale. La carta, tratta dal Atlante Veneto, rappresenta una delle pietre miliari nella cartografia del Pacifico. Incisione in rame, finemente colorata a mano, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Bibliografia: Suarez, Early Mapping of the Pacific, p. 98. Dimensioni 610x455. This map shows the western coast of the Americas, including a nice example of the famous cartographic myth of California as an island. To the west of this is the large, vaguely drawn "Terra De Iesso," reflecting the current unknown state of the lands to the north of Japan and west of America. Coronelli shows the 1615-1617 route of Jacob Lemaire round Cape Horn and west across the Pacific. Lemaire was the first to sail south of Tierra del Fuego, proving that it was not part of the great, unknown Southern Continent. The map is particularly interesting for its early and important depiction of Australia and New Zealand. Part of Australia, including "Nuova Hollanda" in the north and "Terra D'Antonio Diemens" (Tasmania) in the south are indicated, as is part of the western coast of New Zealand. Not realizing New Zealand's insular nature, Coronelli connects this coastline with an eastern coast, "not yet well know" which runs off towards Tierra del Fuego-part of that hypothetical southern continent. Father Vincenzo Maria Coronelli (1650-1718) was an Italian Franciscan who was noted in his own time for producing the finest globes, and one of the greatest mapmakers of the late seventeenth century. Appointed as Cosmographer to the Venetian Republic, and founder of the first geographical society, Coronelli was a recognized master of cartography. Coronelli spent a great deal of his time on cartographic research, and had access to privileged information from French Jesuit missionaries and from his own Franciscan order. This information allowed him to produce the fine body of work, incorporating the most up-to-date information. But besides his accurate geography, Coronelli's maps are exquisite examples of the finest engraving and map illustration of the early days of cartography. The engraving is strong and precise, and Coronelli includes a wonderful title cartouche in the upper right corner, complete with mer-putti and a cornucopia of pearls and other sea objects. More than this, however, Coronelli's maps are geographically fascinating, as is well evidenced in this excellent map. From Atlante Veneto. Venice, 1690. Engraving with fine late colour, in very good condition. One of the landmarks maps of the region by one of the great cartographers of the seventeenth century. Venezia Venice Suarez, Early Mapping of the Pacific, p. 98. Dimensioni 610x455
