        Naval Speculations, and Maritime Politicks: Being a Modest and Brief discourse of the Royal Navy of england:of Its Oeconomy and Government, and A Projection for an everlasting Seminary of Seamen, by a Royal Maritime Hospital. With A Project for a royal fishery. Also Necessary Measures in the present War with France, &c.

      Printed by William Bonny, and sold by Sam. Manship, London 1691 - [32], 348pp, [2]. With an engraved portrait frontispiece and a terminal errata leaf. Without terminal blank. Contemporary gilt-tooled speckled calf, later rebacked, later contrasting black morocco lettering-piece. Rubbed, particularly to joints. Later plain endpapers, armorial bookplate of 'Thomas Foley' to FEP, with his ownership inscription to verso of frontispiece, very short closed tear to title - not touching text, worm-trail to upper margin throughout - occasionally touching running-title, slight loss to lower corner of P1, lower corner of Z1 repaired, lightly foxed. An extensive monograph critiquing the administration of the Royal Navy, with proposals for the improvement of the service, by Henry Maydman, purser and mayor of Portsmouth for 1710. The work provides a succinct portrait of the economic and organisational makeup of the navy, before presenting detailed arguments for revisions and the introduction of new procedure. Maydman, for example, contends that greater provision ought to be made for poor male children in order to better facilitate recruitment; that the establishment of navy controlled fisheries for the purposes of rations supply be implemented; that trade with France be continued despite ongoing conflict; and that, this being a rather elaborate suggestion, captured French sailors be employed fishing the coasts of Newfoundland. The treatise was presumably written, at least in part, in response to the French defeat of the Anglo-Dutch fleet at the Battle of Beachy Head the year prior to publication; certainly there existed a great unease regarding the future of British naval strength following the alliance with the Netherlands instigated by William III. Maydman's work, seemingly disregarded by the naval authorities, presumably due to his criticisms of the conduct of the Admiralty, nevertheless provides a revealing portrait of the conditions of the Royal Navy in the closing years of the seventeenth-century. Thomas Foley (c.1641-1701), politician, supporter of the Glorious Revolution, and latterly a member of the parliament of William III.

      Bij het oproer werden de huizen van de (zeer slecht bekende staande ) baljuw van Rotterdam, Jacob van Zuijlen van Nijevelt, en van belastingpachter Pieter van der Steen gesloopt. Aanleiding was de onthoofding van wijnhandelaar Costerman wegens het doodsteken van een commies. Het volk geloofde echter niet in zijn schuld. Onvrede over de zware belastingdruk speelde wellicht ook een rol.Bundeling van, deels zeer zeldzame, gedrukte stukken betreffende het oproer:Waerachtig verhael, deel I, R’dam, G. v.

Er ontstond een gevecht, waarbij de kommies Kerry met een degen werd gedood. Costerman werd gearresteerd en in opdracht van de baljuw Jacob van Zuijlen gemarteld tot hij schuld bekende. Hij werd ter dood veroordeeld. Het volk echter geloofde niet in zijn schuld en bij de onthoofding waren de protesten zo hevig dat de beul nerveus werd. Hij had maar liefst vijf slagen nodig om het hoofd van Costerman van de romp te scheiden. De woede over de onthoofding, mogelijk in samenhang met de onvrede over de belastingdruk, uitte zich in een oproer waarbij de huizen van de belastingpachter Pieter van der Steen en de baljuw Jacob van Zuijlen van Nijevelt werden gesloopt. De stadsbaljuw Jacob van Zuijlen van Nijevelt stond zeer slecht bekend. Hij legde wetten op zijn manier uit om vooral zijn eigen zak te vullen. Terwijl de voordeur van zijn huis werd beschoten met een kanon ontsnapte de baljuw via de achterdeur van zijn huis. Om niet herkend te worden, droeg hij soldatenkleding. Hij vluchtte naar Den Haag.Vgl. C. Mees Az, Het Rotterdamsche oproer van 1690, Amsterdam 1869, 121 p.; Impost, nr 24 (november 2001) p. 20. M5239

Bookplates on front boards from John Campbell, Esq. of Stackpole Court in the County of Pembroke. Ex-library with only a small label attached to the lower corner of the front boards in each volume. Boards detached from book but binding remains intact and strong. 1 sheet from the index of volume two has been cut out of the book. No other pages missing. Pages clean. Text unmarked. Endpapers soiled. Because the existing spines are quite beautiful, with some attention to reattaching the boards the aesthetic value of the volumes would be restored for the right collector. Sold "as is." Thomas Gale (d. 1702) was a classicist and fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge. While more familiar today as the author of the inscription on the London Monument that blames Catholics for starting the Great Fire of 1666, his research into early British history, as found in this important work of scholarship was the basis of his academic career.

Le dernier texte, en prose est une étrange mise en scène des Dieux du Parnasse et des symboles de la littérature qui vont sacrer madame Deshoulières dixième muse. Le texte est dédié à mademoiselle de Scudery, en concurrence avec madapme Deshoulières, car elle se voulait également une muse des lettres.

Le Niceron dans ses "Mémoires pour servir à l'histoire des Hommes illustres..." cite la présente édition et qualifie celle-ci d'excellente. Solis, né en 1610, débuta sa carrière littéraire en écrivant des comédies ; il renonça à toute poésie profane lorsqu'il fut nommé prêtre à 57 ans. Par ailleurs, le roi Philippe IV le nomma grand historiographe des Indes en 1661. Il mourru en 1686. Dans le présent ouvrage, le bibliographe précise également que Solis fit l'éloge de Cortez, mais que le traducteur M. de la Gette de Citri non tenu au mêmes égards que l'auteur, requalifia les exactions du conquistador dans sa préface.

      London: for Robert Clavel, and Hen. Mortlock, 1691 - Octavo (166 × 106 mm), with imprimatur leaf and final adverts. Contemporary sprinkled sheep, double rule blind stamped border to covers, paper label. Spine faded and chipped at head, corners slightly worn, a little surface abrasion, still a very attractive copy. Engraved armorial bookplate to inside of front board, later small private library stamp to title verso. Acquisition note "Cost 5 pence at an auction Lond. July 1705" to front endpaper. Second edition, first published the previous year, of what is by title at least Petty's key work, posthumously published. After training as a doctor and being admitted to the College of Physicians, Petty worked for many years as an administrator in Ireland, and was a founding member of the Royal Society. He has gone down in history as the originator of statistical analysis under the name of political arithmetic. He established important themes and methods for classical economists, and his works provide abundant detail of the physical and human geography of seventeenth-century Ireland and England. The work was originally published with the date 1690 (the initial licence leaf is dated 7 November 1690). "Apart from dropping a comma in the fourth line in some copies and the change of date, the title-page is identical with that of [the edition of 1690] and is printed from the same setting of type. The imprimatur and the rest of the book have been reset line-by-line including the Errata, though some of them have been corrected." (Keynes) Goldsmiths' 2869; Keynes 35; Kress 1770; Wing P1933.

The book comes with a tan morocco slip case signed R Wallis, Binder.Joannes De Laet (1593-1649), a Flemish naturalist and geographer, was Director of the Dutch West Indies Company. De Laet's description of the Moghul empire was published by Elzevier as part of their "Res publicae" series. It used a variety of sources, including a number of English works and, in particular, Francisco Pelsaert's "Remonstrantie", a 1626 report to the VOC directors on the state of commerce in India. "Remonstrantie" is regarded as "the most detailed and interesting account of Moghul India written by a Dutch observer". It was, however, never published, so De Laet's work is "the earliest published source for Pelsaert's description of India". (Donald Lach and Edwin Van Kley: Asia in the Making of Europe)

        Calabria Citeriore ed Vlteriore

      Napoli 1691 - Acquaforte e bulino, 1691. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, consuete pieghe di carta, piccoli restauri perfettamente eseguiti, per il resto in buono stato di conservazione. Questa rarissima carta geografica della Calabria è tratta dal primo volume Della Calabria illustrata opera varia istorica del r.p. Giovanni Fiore da Cropani, predicatore, lettore di sacra teologia, e ministro provinciale dell'ordine di Frati minori capuccini di S. Francesco della medesima provincia ulteriore edito a Napoli nel 1691 da Antonio Parrino. Il primo tomo fu pubblicato dopo la morte dell'autore da padre Giovanni da Belvedere che vi premise le notizie sulla vita del Fiore. Successivamente l'editore Domenico Rosselli pubblicò un secondo volume nel 1743. Dal punto di vista cartografico la mappa del Fiore segue la prima carta a stampa della Calabria, realizzata nel 1589 a Roma da Prospero Parisio. Giovanni Fiore da Cropani è considerato il massimo storico della Calabria seicentesca. Alla sua opera principale si deve la conoscenza di molti degli avvenimenti di quel periodo storico riguardanti la regione. Nel 1638 entra nell’Ordine dei Frati Minori Cappuccini. Nel 1645 diventa sacerdote e viene trasferito come guardiano e lettore al convento di Stilo. Nel 1657 diventa guardiano del convento di Cropani e nel 1659 di Cutro. Nel 1664 è nominato definitore e guardiano di Catanzaro. Una delle più importanti carte sulla Calabria. Bibliografia: Principe, Carte geografiche della Calabria nella raccolta Zerbi, p. 28.

        Planisfero Del Mondo Vecchio; C.1691 Coronelli Map of the Eastern Hemisphere

      Vincenzo Coronelli, Venice - Map. Engraving with hand color. Sheet measures 19.5" x 26.25" This lovely map of the Eastern Hemisphere was issued by Vincenzo Coronelli in circa 1691. The map covers the continents of Africa, Europe, Asia and Australia in detail and includes the discoveries made by Abel Tasman in Australia. The map is cartographically based on Coronelli's large gores from 1688, which were themselves derived from the manuscript globes constructed for Louis XI in 1683. An early mapping of the coastline of Antarctica is also included. Dedication to Senator Andrea Marcello appear in the top left with his coat of arms in the top right. The lower corners include explanations. A series of concentric rings surround the map noting distance, eclipse, climate zones, and astronomical information. The 12 zodiac signs are noted on the outer edges of the circle. The map has wear along centerfold and verso repair and fill near the bottom with loss of a few letters in the south pole and margin fill. Plate cracks visible. Minor foxing. Unusual coloring. Vincenzo Coronelli (1650-1718) was a Franciscan priest and renowned mathematician and cartographer. He was appointed official Cosmographer to the Venetian Republic in 1685 and founded the world's earliest geographic society, L'Accademia Cosmografica degli Argonauti. He was known best for his globes, which he made for prominent rulers such as Louis XIV and the Duke of Parma. This map is an excellent example of his work.

        In Historiam Pomponii De Origine Juris Et omnium Magistratuum & sucessione prudentium, Exercitationes

      Trajecti Ad Rhenum Ex Officina Francisci Halma, Academiae Typographi 1691 - Later leather binding with stamped design on front, five rolled bands on spine with gilt title in red square. Some wear on edges and corners , possible reinforcement of front hinge. Interior toning though not heavy. Ornate, armorial bookplate on front pastedown from the House of Abercairny. More modern bookplate on rear pastedown. Book is square but front hinge is suspicious. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 135, 240, 120 pages; This book is in Latin and I'm not sure of the translation. I think the book deals with the origins of laws but I'm unsure of "Pomponii." Few copies of this work are listed on-line. One that has been scanned was owned by John Adams. No other copies are offered for sale. This is an attractive 17th century work. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
