        Historia insectorum generalis in qua verissina mutationem...duce experientia... recepta vulgo insectorum metamorphosis solide refutatur... adjicitur dilucidatio... Ex Belgica latinam fecit Henricus Christianus Henninius. Editio Secunda.

      Ultrajecti [Utrecht], Ottho de Vries, 1693. 4to (19.3 x 15.6 cm). Half totle, title in red and black with woodcut vignette, 212 pp., [xvii]; 13 (mostly) folded engraved plates, one folded table. Contemporary half vellum over marbled boards, spine with gilt title on morocco label, gilt name embossed on front board.l This is the third (second Latin) edition of a work of great scientific merit. Swammerdam laid the foundation of modern insect-classification, which still rests to a great extent upon their evolutionary history. He also proved almost everything then believed about insects wrong, especially spontaneous generation, and in fact the whole ontogenesis, which he demonstrated in very detailed drawings. The live history from egg to adult is shown on several plates. apart from various insects, the ontogeny of a frog is also included. Swammerdam's works are renowned for their depiction of even the most complicated details in the minute creatures (and their even smaller parts) that he investigated. Although Swammerdam died at a very early age, he is considered in some circles to be one of the very important Dutch scientists of the 17th century. The original edition of the present work appeared in Dutch in 1669. With a bookplate pasted on the front pastedown and some browning in the text and on the plates. On the marbled front board H. Laspeyres is printed in gilt. This is probably the German entomologist Jakob Heinrich Laspeyres (1769-1809). Cat. BM(NH) p. 2055; Horn-Schenkling, 21795; Nissen ZBI, 4053.

Né à Orléans en 1644, Aignan avait été capucin dans sa jeunesse et de plus il avait travaillé au Louvre vers 1678 en qualité de chimiste. Devenu médecin du Roi et Docteur de la Faculté de Padoue, il avait élaboré des idées médicales opérant une curieuse synthèse entre la théologie, la médecine classique et la chimie. Dans cet ouvrage il désigne Galien et Hippocrate comme les véritables inventeurs de la médecine chimique, et il s'étend notamment sur la nature chimique de la digestion. Bon exemplaire.

        Summa Tripartita scholastica, prhilosophiae; sive cursus philosophicus triennalis, in logicam, physicam, et metaphysicam Aristotelis Pars Prima In Logicam

      Sumtibus Iosephi de Contreras Regio Limae Typographi, Lima 1693 - " (* Medina. LIEL: 651). Preliminares + 692 páginas + otras hojas no foliadas que calzan con el orden descrito por Medina. Ex libris manuscrito no identificado en frontispicio. Este libro conjuntamente "con el otro correspondiente a la filosofía" (Medina: 663), son probablemente los Tratados Filosóficos más importantes que se hicieron en Sudamérica en el siglo XVII (ampliamente citados en internet). Mérito enorme el que fueran pensados y elaborados por un hijo del Nuevo Mundo: el Filósofo Jesuita Nicolás de Olea, Catedrático de la Universidad San Marcos y Rector del Colegio Jesuita San Pablo. Nunca se les puede encontrar juntos a los dos volúmenes y acaso tampoco de manera individual. (El tomo "In Logicam" es mucho más raro de hallar). La Biblioteca Nacional del Perú no los posee ni tampoco la Widener Library de la Universidad de Harvard. El Profesor Gonzalo Díaz Díaz ha dicho de él en su monumental "Hombres y Documentos de la Filosofía Española" (1997-1998. Volumen 6 "O-R", Madrid, pp. 19 y 20): "una de las personalidades más relevantes de los ambientes culturales fue autor de varias obras de orientación aristotélica en las que se advierte una clara influencia de Descartes (lo introdujo en Sudamérica), Telesio y Campanella" También siguió a "Giordano Bruno y Thcho Brahe". " "The most important treatise on philosophy, physics and mathematics produced in South America in the 16th Century -by a Jesuit Priest -". 4to; vellum; title page with marginal restorations. PART ONE OF THE FIRST SYSTEMATIC PHILOSOPHICAL TREATISE produced in South America. The second part, of which only one copy is extant, was published by the same printer one year later. The author, Nicolás de Olea, was a Peruvian Jesuit physicist who entered the Company of Jesus in 1652. From 1682 to 1686 he accompanied the Jesuit Provincial Martín de Jáuregui as a consultant to various Jesuit establishments in the Province of Peru. He is considered a Scholastic philosopher, a follower of the thought of Saint Thomas Aquinas, but possessing sufficient ideological expansiveness to cite Thomas Campanella, Giordano Bruno, Tycho Brahe, and other founders and exponents of the New Science. In this treatise, the author introduces the philosophy of René Descartes in Peru. (18) + 692 pp páginas

        Patrimonio di S. Pietro olim Tusca Suburbicaria con le sue più cospicue strade antiche & - Il Lazio con le sue più cospicue strade antiche e moderne.

      Roma 1693 - Dopo aver accuratamente seguito il progetto per l’ampliamento e la sistemazione di Roma, papa Alessandro VII (Fabio Chigi) dava l’incarico a diversi topografi ed agronomi di formare il catasto dell’Agro Romano, conferendo al gesuita Francesco Eschinardi il compito di dirigere la parte cartografica. Il migliore rilievo, oltre a quello di Giovan Battista Cingolani, fu opera dell’Ameti, che realizzò due grandi carte della parte settentrionale e meridionale della provincia di Roma. Come fa giustamente notare Almagià le due carte possono essere in realtà riunite in una sola, avendo in comune il lembo nel quale è rappresentato il basso corso del Tevere con Roma. L’opera si basa sostanzialmente sulla carta che il monaco camaldolese Innocenzo Mattei (1626-79), geografo pontificio sotto Clemente X, realizzo nel 1666. Rispetto alla Tavola esatta dell’antico Latio e Nova Campagna di Roma del Mattei il rilievo dell’Ameti rivela fondamentali analogie in tutti gli elementi del contenuto, compresi i riferimenti all’età classica, alle strade etc; sono aggiunte diverse piccole località, e più notevoli differenze sono riscontrabili per la zona costiera e subcostiera. La carta del Patrimonio di San Pietro ha un enorme cartiglio in alto a sinistra dove assieme alla data, 1696, ed al nome dell’editore Domenico de Rossi, reca la dedica al cardinale Francesco Nerli. Accurata è la descrizione del territorio, con rappresentazione delle zone boschive, delle alture, indicazione dei centri abitati nonché raffigurazione dei laghi di Bolsena, di Bracciano e dello Stagno di Orbetello. La carta del Lazio, dedicata al cardinale Pietro Ottoboni, è anteriore di tre anni e presenta notevoli migliorie nel rilievo delle Paludi Pontine, dove anche l’idrografia è notevolmente diversa. Le carte dell’Ameti furono inserite, assieme a quella del Mattei, nella seconda edizione del Mercurio Geografico, atlante della tipografia De Rossi. Incisioni in rame, eseguita all'acquaforte su quattro matrici ognuna, anticamente unite. Esemplare in ottimo stato conservativo, rifilato ai margini; lievi segni di colla lungo le tracce di piegatura. Bibliografia: Frutaz, Le carte del Lazio, pp. 75-77; Almagià , Documenti Cartografici dello Stato Pontificio, pp. 40-42, 73. Dimensioni 1130x835 e 1130x835. Once he had realized his project to renovate and enlarge Rome, Pope Alexander VII (Fabio Chigi) charged quite a few topographers and agronomists to realize the Roman countryiside land registry, putting the Jesuit Francesco Eschinardi in charge of the cartographic part. The best maps have been drawn by Giovan Battista Cingolati and Ameti, who realized two big size maps of the Northern and Southern neighbourhood of Rome. As Almagià points out, the two maps could be joined to form just one print, since they share a part where the river Tiber and Rome are depicted. This work is basically after Innocenzo Mattei’s (1626-79), a Camaldolese monk, who was official geographer of Clemente X and realized his work in 1666. When compared to Mattei’s Tavola esatta dell’antico Latio e Nova Campagna di Roma, Ameti’s work shows many analogies in different fields: classical references, the names of the streets, etc. It differs from its sources on the addiction of new places, especially along the coasts. The first map (St. Peter’s Heritage) presents a big cartouche on upper left, with the date, 1691, and the printer’s name, Domenico de Rossi, together with dedication to the Cardinal Francesco Nerli. The description of the territory is quite detailed, with wods, heights, the small towns and the lakes of Bolsena, Bracciano and Orbetello. The map of Latium, dedicated to the Cardinal Pietro Ottoboni, has been printed three years before and presents a better relief of the Pontine marshes, and even the hydrography is quite different. Ameti’s map have been included, together with Mattei’s, in the second edition of De Rossi’s Mercurio Geografico. Copperplates, realized in four plates each, joined together in the pas

        Zuiderzee Waddenzee antieke kaart.

      ?Carte des Entrees du Suyder Zee et de L?Embs avec les Isles Bancs et Costes Comprises entre La Hollande et la Frise Orientale.? Gravure vervaardigd in 1693 door Herman van Loon, gedrukt van twee koperplaten, uitgegeven te Amsterdam door Pieter Mortier als deel van diens Le Neptune Fran?ois. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm.: 61 x 87,5 cm.Grote gedetailleerde zeekaart van de ingang van de Zuiderzee gezien van zuid naar noord. De meeste kleine plaatsen zijn aangegeven met een kerk of ander gebouw, van sommige steden zijn de fortificaties te zien. Met inzetkaart van de Zuiderzee van Urk tot aan Amsterdam.De Zuiderzee lag vol zandbanken en andere ondieptes. Daardoor was het een moeilijk vaarwater. Vooral in het noordelijke deel - de huidige Waddenzee - konden schepen met moeite een route vinden. Daarvoor gebruikten schippers kaarten als deze waarop dieptes, zandbanken, bakens en visfuiken zijn aangegeven.Le Neptune Fran?ois, beschouwd als de fraaiste en kwalitatief meest hoogstaande zeeatlas die in de zeventiende eeuw in Amsterdam werd uitgegeven, is een zogenaamde contrefa?on: een nadruk. Pieter Mortier (1661-1711) wilde hiermee de concurrentie aangaan met De nieuwe groote lichtende zeefakkel, de indrukwekkende zeemansgids waarmee Johannes van Keulen (1654-1715) zich vanaf 1681 een monopoliepositie op het terrein van de maritieme cartografie had verworven.Jean Colbert (1619-1683) gaf in de tachtiger jaren van de zeventiende eeuw een groep wiskundigen en astronomen van de Acad?mie Royale des Sciences opdracht om in samenwerking met hydrografen van de Franse marine de kusten van het Europese continent van Noorwegen tot Gibraltar in kaart te brengen. Het resultaat van deze onderneming, een schitterend gegraveerde atlas in 29 bladen, uitgegeven onder verantwoordelijkheid van de koninklijk geograaf Alexis-Hubert Jaillot (1632-1712) rolde in 1693 van de drukpersen van de Imprimerie Royale in Parijs.Nog datzelfde jaar verscheen in Amsterdam de nadruk van Pieter Mortier die identiek was gegraveerd en gedrukt. Mortier, de zoon van een Franse politieke vluchteling, had in 1690 het privilege verkregen om de kaarten en atlassen van Franse uitgevers in Holland te verspreiden. Hij vatte dat recht ruim op. Omdat hij niet aan de originele koperplaten kon komen, liet hij de kaarten opnieuw graveren. Vervolgens bracht hij de atlassen onder vermelding van het oorspronkelijke impressum op de markt. Zo ook Le Neptune Fran?ois.Prijs: ?1.350,-.

Gbrsp., hds. Einträge a. V. Schöne kräftige Abzüge. - Bartoli kam bereits als Jugendlicher um 1643 nach Rom, wo er zunächst Malerei bei Jean Lemaire und Poussin studierte, dann aber zur Kupferstecherei wechselte. Bartoli widmete sich vor allem der Reproduktion von Werken der antiken Kunst und kann als Hauptvertreter der archäologischen Richtung des römischen Kupferstichs angesehen werden. Er fertigte zahlreiche Zeichnungen nach der Antike an, die gestochen und zu Büchern zusammengefasst wurden, deren Text häufig von dem Antiquar Giovanni Pietro Bellori (1613-1693) verfasst wurde. Er publizierte Werke etwa zu antiken Reliefs (Trajanssäule, Marc-Aurel-Säule, zur römischen Malerei, die er in einer Art Corpus vorlegen wollte, zu antiken Gräbern, zu Porträts, Gemmen und Lampen. Bartolis Stichwerke dienten der weiten Verbreitung der Kenntnis der antiken Denkmäler Roms und bilden für zahlreiche Objekte, die nicht mehr im Original erhalten sind, heute eine Primärquelle, z.B. die Malereien des Nasoniergrabs. Bartoli gehörte zu einem Kreis von Antiquaren, Künstlern und Kunst- und Antikenliebhabern im Rom des 17. Jahrhunderts, zu denen unter anderem Poussin, Giovanni Pietro Bellori, Cassiano dal Pozzo und Carlo Antonio dal Pozzo sowie die Kardinäle Francesco Barberini und Camillo Massimo gehörten. Nach dem Tode Belloris hatte Bartoli von 1696 bis zu seinem Tode das Amt des Aufsehers der Antiken im Kirchenstaat inne, des Commissario delle Antichità. Ebenso war er als Nachfolger Belloris Antiquar der Königin Christina von Schweden, deren umfangreiche Sammlungen er betreute und teilweise publizierte. (Zitat)

        Carte Particuliere des Costes de l'Afrique qui comprend le Royaume de Gualata etc

      Amsterdam: Pierre Mortier, 1693. unbound. Map. Copper plate engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 19.5 x 33" The large chart of the NW coast of Africa extends from Cape Boujdour south as far as the Senegal River, with the southern part of the coast depicted in an inset. Oriented to the left, it depicts the region of modern day Western Sahara, Mauritania and Senegal. The sea chart offers incredible detail along the coast noting towns, rivers, islands and coastal features including banks and depth soundings. The map is in good condition with large margins. Minor wear along the centerfold with some offsetting and foxing, large horizontal fold. Original pressmark is visible. Two sheets joined at center. Pierre Mortier (1661-1711) was a Dutch cartographer, engraver, and printseller who worked in Amsterdam. He used advanced Dutch printing methods to produce high quality editions of contemporary French maps by cartographers such as De L'Isle, Sanson, Jaillot, de Fer and De Wit. His greatest feat was the nautical atlas "Le Neptune Francois" or "Suite de Neptune Francois", considered to contain the most beautiful examples of cartographic art. Most of the charts from the atlas were based on earlier manuscripts by the Portuguese, who were the first explorers of the African coast.

Il Galilei, "rimettendosi alla determinazione di V.E. e degli altri Signori Lincei" propone come titolo della sua opera di prossima pubblicazione: "Historia e dimostrazioni intorno alle Macchie Solari e loro accidenti...". Lettera al medesimo su le stesse materie datata dalle Selve li 25 di Gennaro 1612. Galilei scrive di mutazioni da apportare al testo "che davano fastidio al Revisore". Lettera al detto Principe Cesi su l'istesso soggetto datata dalla Villa delle Selve li 12 Maggio 1612.

        Limburgum Urbs Ducatus Cognominis Caput.

      Amsterdam Amsterdam. unbound. very good. Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 15.5" x 20". Beautiful and unusually rendered map of Limbourg in southeastern Belgium. The Vesdre River winds around and through farmland, the hills and the fortress. Tiny scenes, houses and animals dot the landscape. Includes two coats of arms. Originally published in "Theatrum Praecipuarum Totius Europae Urbium" (town book of Europe), circa 1693. Expert repairs to centerfold, a few small tears to bottom edge. Margins have been cropped. Frederick de Wit (1629/30--1706) was one of the foremost cartographers and map sellers of the Dutch Golden Age. Based in Amsterdam, he began with a small printing shop in 1654 and soon became internationally known for his city plans and wall maps of the world. His most famous work is the "Theatrum Praecipuarum Totius Europae," published after 1694, which contained 132 plans and views of European and Asian cities. By 1671, he was producing large folio atlases for both his shop and individual patrons that could contain anywhere between 15 and 150 maps. Today, these atlases grace the collections of many museums and institutions as evidence of the vibrant cartographic trade in Amsterdam in the middle- and late-17th century. This striking map is a rare example from this work.

        A New Historical Relation of the Kingdom of Siam Envoy Extraordinary from the French King. To the King of Siam, in the Years 1687 and 1688. Wherein a Full and Curious Account is Given of the Chinese Way of Arithmatick and Mathematick Learning

      London: F.L. for Tho. Horne, Francis Saunders, and Tho. Benner, 1693. First English edition. Hardcover. Very good condition. Two volumes bound in one. The account of de La Loubere's embassy to Siam on behalf of Louis XIV, considered to be the best account of Thailand of the time, praised by Gottfried Leibniz as containing solid truths and research of great consequence. The account was first published in France in 1691, but only in duodecimo, not in folio. It was still influential at the time of de La Loubere's death, praised as the best example of works of its kind by the chancellor of the Academie Francaise. It remains an important source on 17th century Siam, as the archives of the country were destroyed by fire in 1767.It includes 11 full page copper engraved plates on a wide range of subjects, including native plants, local dress, floor plans of temples and palaces, the king's ceremonial vessels, Siamese music, sculpture, Siamese alphabet, chess, and smoking.The Sun King sent de La Loubere to Siam in the hopes of converting the ancient civilization to Catholicism and benefiting from trade. The Siamese king, who sent an embassy to Versailles at the conclusion of de La Loubere's embassy, also wanted to impress the French king, and to use the French as a counterbalance to Dutch ambitions. Louis XIV received the Siamese embassy at Versailles in the newly constructed Hall of Mirrors; he was dressed in a gem covered garment and seated on a diamond encrusted cushion. De La Loubere (1642 - 1729) traveled to the court of the King of Siam in 1687-1688, to observe that country "as exactly as possible". He was accompanied by the director of the French East India Company. The embassy was received in Bangkok by Ok-khun Chamnan Chiachong, a Siamese diplomat.The French negotiated a new commercial treaty during their short stay, but anti French sentiment was growing in the Siamese court over the occupation of Bangkok. Shortly after de La Loubere's departure, Siam experienced a revolution which deposed the king, overthrew the French garrison and closed Siam to France for the next 150 years.De La Loubere's account is a comprehensive description of the Siamese civilization, with detailed descriptions of a wide range of topics, including the language, religion, customs & occupations of the people, marriage, divorce & education, medicine, mathematics, music, and foreigners in Siam. The mathematics of the title refers to a mathematical solution de La Loubere learned of in Siam, known as the 'De La Loubere Method', an easy method for making any size "magic squares" in which the sums of all rows, columns and diagonals are identical. In the second volume of the two bound together, there is a also a description of the Cape of Good Hope, with engraved views of Table Mountain, a Dutch factory, and a Hottentot family.Two folio volumes bound in one. Vol I (iv), 143pp, (1 blank), 2 maps, 6 full page engraved plates. Vol II, 145-260pp, 3 full page engraved plates. Bookplate of early owner with armorial crest "Libertas" with a crowned rampant lion and facing bull, and manuscript '2797', at the front paste down. Title page has Chinese wood block in red (chop), verso, with red block stamp with ink manuscript numbers, indicating that the volume perhaps once belonged to a Chinese library. Title page credits the translation as "Done out of French, by A. P. Gen. R. S.S."Small folio in full original brown leather with smooth center panel with blind tooled border & decorations at corners, surrounded by leather of a deliberately textured grain. Spine sympathetically rebacked with tan leather, raised bands and original title label. OCLC: 220779409 records 5 copies. Cordeir Indosinica 723. Wing L201.

        TRUTH BROUGHT TO LIGHT: or The gross forgeries of Dr. Hollingworth, in his pamphlet intituled, The character of King Charles the First, from the declaration of Mr. Alexander Henderson, &c. detected.

      London, printed in the year 1693. Being a vindication of Mr. Henderson and Dr. Walker, from the Aldgate chaplain's vile scandals. To which is annex'd, a manifest proof that Dr. Gauden (not King Charles I.) was the author of Icon basilice (Eikon Basilike), by a late happy discovery of his original papers upon that occasion. In a letter from Lieut. General Ludlow to Dr. Hollingworth. FIRST EDITION 1693, no printer or publisher named. Small slim 4to, approximately 190 x 135 mm, 7½ x 5¼ inches, 40 pages, bound in full vellum over boards, single rule gilt border to covers, gilt rules to spine, gilt lettered morocco label. Covers slightly bowed and slightly spotted, armorial bookplate on front pastedown of Bulkeley Bandinel, celebrated librarian of the Bodleian (1781-1861), on the front endpaper is the signature of Henry H. Gibbs, later Lord Aldenham (d. 1907) and on the rear pastedown is Lord Aldenham's armorial bookplate, light brown damp staining throughout, to margins and in places to text, all easily legible. Binding tight and firm. A good copy only. Ludlow's name printed on page 34 with the date: October 1. 1692. This is the work of a republican pamphleteer who wrote under the name of General Ludlow, or Edmund Ludlow, Lieut.-general. It concerns the controversy over the authorship of 'Eikon basilike', which Richard Hollingworth believed was the work of Charles I, whilst the author of this tract, amongst others, believed it to be the work of John Gauden. Madan, in his 'New bibliography of the Eikon basilike', states that it was in fact written by John Gauden, although it probably includes some authentic writings of the King (No. 173, page 143 in the Appendix on The Authorship Controversy).

Small folio, early full dark brown speckled calf neatly rebacked, raised bands, red morocco spine label. $4500.Expanded second edition of AndradaÂ’s life of the Viceroy of India, João de Castro—dubbed “Castro Forte” by Camões in the Lusiads—with frontispiece portrait Faithorne and two copper-engraved plates, one folding. A fine copy.In 1545 João de Castro was sent to the Indies. “The next three years were the hardest and most brilliant, as they were the last, of his life—years of battle and struggle, of glory and sorrow, of suffering and triumph. Valiantly seconded by his sons (one of whom, Fernão, was killed before Diu)Â… de Castro achieved such popularity by the overthrow of Mahmud, king of Gujarat, by the relief of Diu, and by the defeat of the great army of the Adil Khan, that he could contract a very large loan with the Goa merchants on the simple security of his moustache. These great deeds were followed by the capture of Broach, bu the complete subjugation of Malacca, and by the passage of Antonio Moniz into Ceylon; and in 1547 the great captain was appointed viceroy by João III” (Britannica, 11th ed.). AndradaÂ’s account, translated admirably by Sir Peter Wyche, eldest son of the English ambassador at Oporto, details the Portuguese discovery, exploration, conquest and control of territories in East India and the Spice Islands, and the conquerorsÂ’ continuing efforts to secure their trade routes. First published in Portuguese in 1651; WycheÂ’s English translation first appeared in 1664. Wing F2156. Engraved bookplate and shelf label.Neat repair to verso of folding plate.

        Zuiderzee Waddenzee antieke kaart.

      ?Carte des Entrees du Suyder Zee et de L?Embs avec les Isles Bancs et Costes Comprises entre La Hollande et la Frise Orientale.? Gravure vervaardigd in 1693 door Herman van Loon, gedrukt van twee koperplaten, uitgegeven te Amsterdam door Pieter Mortier als deel van diens Le Neptune Fran?ois. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm.: 61 x 87,5 cm.Grote gedetailleerde zeekaart van de ingang van de Zuiderzee gezien van zuid naar noord. De meeste kleine plaatsen zijn aangegeven met een kerk of ander gebouw, van sommige steden zijn de fortificaties te zien. Met inzetkaart van de Zuiderzee van Urk tot aan Amsterdam.De Zuiderzee lag vol zandbanken en andere ondieptes. Daardoor was het een moeilijk vaarwater. Vooral in het noordelijke deel - de huidige Waddenzee - konden schepen met moeite een route vinden. Daarvoor gebruikten schippers kaarten als deze waarop dieptes, zandbanken, bakens en visfuiken zijn aangegeven.Le Neptune Fran?ois, beschouwd als de fraaiste en kwalitatief meest hoogstaande zeeatlas die in de zeventiende eeuw in Amsterdam werd uitgegeven, is een zogenaamde contrefa?on: een nadruk. Pieter Mortier (1661-1711) wilde hiermee de concurrentie aangaan met De nieuwe groote lichtende zeefakkel, de indrukwekkende zeemansgids waarmee Johannes van Keulen (1654-1715) zich vanaf 1681 een monopoliepositie op het terrein van de maritieme cartografie had verworven.Jean Colbert (1619-1683) gaf in de tachtiger jaren van de zeventiende eeuw een groep wiskundigen en astronomen van de Acad?mie Royale des Sciences opdracht om in samenwerking met hydrografen van de Franse marine de kusten van het Europese continent van Noorwegen tot Gibraltar in kaart te brengen. Het resultaat van deze onderneming, een schitterend gegraveerde atlas in 29 bladen, uitgegeven onder verantwoordelijkheid van de koninklijk geograaf Alexis-Hubert Jaillot (1632-1712) rolde in 1693 van de drukpersen van de Imprimerie Royale in Parijs.Nog datzelfde jaar verscheen in Amsterdam de nadruk van Pieter Mortier die identiek was gegraveerd en gedrukt. Mortier, de zoon van een Franse politieke vluchteling, had in 1690 het privilege verkregen om de kaarten en atlassen van Franse uitgevers in Holland te verspreiden. Hij vatte dat recht ruim op. Omdat hij niet aan de originele koperplaten kon komen, liet hij de kaarten opnieuw graveren. Vervolgens bracht hij de atlassen onder vermelding van het oorspronkelijke impressum op de markt. Zo ook Le Neptune Fran?ois.Prijs: ?1.350,-.

        Journal du Voyage Fait a la Mer de Sud, avec les Flibustiers

      1693. RAVENEAU DE LUSSAN. Journal du Voyage Fait a la Mer de Sud, avec les Flibustiers de l’Amerique en 1684. Paris: Jean Coignard, 1693. Thick 12mo, contemporary full brown calf, elaborately gilt-decorated spine, red morocco spine label, raised bands. $2500.Third edition of the exploits of 17th-century “freebooters” along the coast of South America, with allegorical woodcut title-page vignette depicting Death and Melancholy.French pirate Raveneau de Lussan embarked for Santo Domingo in 1679 in search of fortune. He claimed to have “adopted the Buccaneering ‘profession’ in order to obtain money to pay his creditors and to return to his fashionable life in Paris. According to his own account, he was a man of the highest principles and very devout, never allowing his crew to molest priests, nuns, or churches. After taking a Spanish town, he would attend Mass in the Church or Cathedral with his pirates before commencing to loot” (Cox II, 270). Unsuccessful in his first foray, he joined the buccaneers under Cornelius Laurent, sailing from Petit-Goave in November, 1684. He soon rose to command 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 the city on fire. Following this disappointment, Lussan briefly parted ways with the English buccaneers, but joined forces with them later for the purpose of attacking Guayaquil, which they took with much booty. This work is an account of these wayward adventures as far north as Acapulco, including a deadly routing by the Spanish army, of which Voltaire later made note: “The retreat of the ten thousand will always be more celebrated, but is not to be compared to it.” First published in 1688 and followed by a second edition in 1690 (though this 1693 title page also reads “second edition”). Text in French. Sabin 67985. See Cox II, 270. Owner signature.Very faint dampstain to blank margins of first gathering. Several small wormholes to bottom edges and spine ends of handsome contemporary calf. A desirable copy.

De Ville, 1693, in 12, de 120pp. & 12ff. d'explication de certains mots qui pourraient paraître obscurs, ill. d'une figure in t., pl. veau blond époque, dos lisse avec titre en long, encadr. d'un triple filet doré sur les plats, coiffe inf. usée, tache brune en marge du titre sinon bel exemplaire. Très rare seconde édition très augmentée de ce rare témoignage sur la première affaire concernant les pouvoirs de la baguette de coudrier. C'est le fameux cas du sourcier Jacques Aymar. Le 5 mars 1692, un marchand de vin de Lyon et sa femme sont assassinés dans leur cave. L'enquête piétine. Un voisin suggère alors de recourir aux services de Jacques Aymar. Conduit sur les lieux du crime, celui-ci reconstitue l'itinéraire des assassins grâce à sa baguette qui l'entraîne jusqu'à Beaucaire. Là, elle désigne un bossu qui vient d'être arrêté pour un petit larcin. Ramené à Lyon, le bossu avoue être l'un des auteurs du crime. Il est aussitôt condamné à la roue place des Terreaux. Les Lyonnais sont impressionnés, et de nombreux récits louent les pouvoirs du sourcier de Saint-Véran. Désormais célèbre, il est sollicité de toute part, ses pouvoirs fascinent et sa renommée enfle. Les autorités s'en émeuvent. Il est appelé à Paris où la prestigieuse Académie Royale des Sciences le soumet à une série de tests qui le mettent en défaut. Finalement le prince Henri de Bourbon-Condé le dénoncera comme imposteur. ¶ cf.
