JURIEU, Pierre (1637-1713) or Michel LE VASSOR (1646 -1718)]
A Amsterdam [Pierre Brunel] 1690 - . 4to. 228p. Contemp. vellum. A fine copy. First complete edition, first issue. One of the most famous pamphlets against French monarchical absolutism, notorious all over Europe for the violence of its arguments. It consists of 15 'memoirs' published in Amsterdam between August 1689 and October 1690, not surprisingly anonymously and severely prosecuted in France. It was according to Barbier already in 1772 so rare that the chancellor Maupeou bought a copy at an auction 'au prix de cinq cents livres sur l'enchere du duc d'Orleans'. Shortly before the outbreak of the Revolution of 1789 reprinted, without the last two memoirs, under the title Les voeux d'un patriote. The first three memoirs treat the oppression and tyranny under which France suffers and the misery caused by Louis XIV's despotic rule. The following memoirs give an historical exposition of the usurpation of absolute power by the monarchy. The author asserts that the power of the king is submitted to the right of the people, represented by the states. He then criticizes the launching of the standing army and Louis' fiscal policy. In the last memoirs he seeks to show in which way this despotic rule can be abolished and the rights of the people restored. It appeared shortly after William III had, in the eyes of the author, brought into practice the right of resistance of the people by overthrowing James II, thus making an end to (catholic) monarchical absolutism in England. Most bibliographers assign this to the Calvinist leader Pierre Jurieu, exiled in Holland, sometimes adding t … [Click Below for Full Description]

CORONELLI, Vincenzo Maria (1650-1718)
Venice: V. M. Coronelli, [1690, or later]. Copper-engraved map, on two joined sheets, in excellent condition. 24 x 35 inches. A superlative impression of Coronelli's important and innovative map, and a foundation map for any serious collection of the cartography of North America. 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. He published two atlases, the Atlante Veneto (Venice, 1691) and the Isolario (1696-98), and compiled the first encyclopedia to be arranged alphabetically. This magnificent map of North America, published in the Atlante Veneto, is widely considered to be one of Coronelli's finest maps, and is cartographically similar to the scene depicted on his famous globe of 1688. Printed initially on two separate sheets, the present example has been carefully joined to form a wonderful unified image. The map is beautifully preserved in its uncoloured state, as originally intended. Artistically, it is a masterpiece of late Baroque engraving. Its title cartouche, featuring scenes of gods blessing this era of European expansion evinces the sumptuous style of Coron … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris: Jean Baptiste Coignard, 1690. Book. Very Good. Full-Leather. Second Edition. 24mo - over 5" - 5¾" tall. [16], 272 pages. Nice new leather binding, Gilt spine title Voyage a la Mer de Sud. Title page and 2 other pages have expertly done paper repairs on the margins, first page of the dedication has a few old library number, no other markings. One of the very few first hand accounts of the buccaneers in the 17th century. Written by a French nobleman, Sieur Raveneau de Lussan. He belonged to a noble but impoverished family, and embraced a military career at the age of fourteen. In 1679 he embarked for Santo Domingo in search of fortune, but was unsuccessful, and joined the buccaneers under Cornelius Laurent, sailing from Petit-Goave, 22 November, 1684. He soon left Laurent at the head of a band of his own, and in 1685 pillaged the town of Realejo in Guatemala. In 1686 his band took part in the capture of Grenada, and, not finding the booty they expected, set fire to the city. After this Lussan separated from the English pirates, but he joined them again for the purpose of attacking Guayaquil, which they took with much booty. Lussan and a part of his followers then sailed for Tehuantepec, which they captured, and went as far north as Acapulco. They returned to Mapala, a port north of Realejo, and deliberated on the route they should take to reach the Antilles. It was agreed to march to Nueva Segovia, a town situated on the Yarn or Cape river, which empties into the Atlantic. Of this expedition Voltaire said : "The retreat of the ten thousand will always be more celebrate … [Click Below for Full Description]
