        Mudela-nila-hummatu, Fig. 30

      Amsterdam 1693 - Hendrik Adriaan van Rheede tot Draakenstein was a Dutch traveler, the one time Governor of Cochin and a naturalist whom worked for the Dutch East India Company in the 17th century. In 1693 he published his work, “Hortus Indicus Malabaricus,” in twelve volumes. This publication is the oldest comprehensive book printed on the natural plant wealth of Asia and of the tropics, specifically the south Indian Malabar region. Van Rheede’s “Hortus Indicus Malabaricus” is the result of 30 years of compiling and editing information from a team of the best of 17th century European physicians, scientist, technicians, illustrators and engravers, whom collaborated with scholars from all over India. It is of great importance today as a rare record of the plant wealth of Kerala (India) and medicinal uses of those plants, and is the only source of information about ancient Indian medicinal plants. Comprising 1,595 pages of text, all in Latin, the original book contains descriptions and illustrations of 742 plants. Included in the plant descriptions are the medicinal properties of the plants, the respective diseases for which they were used for treatment and the modes of treatment as known to the ancient, renowned traditional physicians of Malabar (Kerala). This fine hand-colored engraving titled "Mudela-nila-hummatu, Fig. 30" from “Hortus Indicus Malabaricus,” measures 15.25” x 19” and is in excellent condition with light staining in the margins and faint evidence of previous repair to the central crease. As illustrated on this plate, the plant is described by its names in the regional language of Malayalam, which was the language used by the natives of Cohin during the 17th century. This flowering plant is expertly hand-colored with rich green stems and large leaves and yellow, tubular flowers with orange accents. These dynamic flowers are shown in different stages of bloom from partial to full bloom as well as the green fruit. Also illustrated on this engraving are cross sections of the stamens of the flowers and well as the seed pods, adding a scientific aspect to the engraving.

        PERSPECTIVA PICTORUM ET ARCHITECTORUM - PROSPETTIVA DE' PITTORI E ARCHITETTI In quae docetur modus expeditissimus delineandi opticè omnia que pertinent ad Architecturam / In cui s’insegna il modo più sbrigato di mettere in prospettiva tutti i disegni d’Architettura.

      Roma, nella Stamperia di Gio: Giacomo Komarek, 1693-1700. In folio (mm. 405x272), 2 parti in 2 voll., p. pelle bazana settecentesca, sottili cornici dorate ai piatti (lievi abras.), dorso a cordoni con decoraz. e tit. oro su tassello, tagli rossi, 110; 127 cc.nn. di testo e tavole prospettiche incise in rame. - Primo volume: 1 frontesp. latino, 1 frontesp. italiano, 1 antiporta incisa, 1 c. con dedica a ?"Leopoldo Austriaco Imperadore?" in italiano, 1 c. con dedica in latino, 1 c. con ?"Imprimatur?" e ?"Avvisi ai principianti?" (bilingue) e al "verso" la raffigurazione degli strumenti necessari al disegno prospettico, 1 carta bilingue di avviso ?"Al lettore?"; seguono 100 figure numerate con testo bilingue a fronte (come da Indice); 2 cc. con ?"altre spiegationi delle prime dodeci figure, in latino e in italiano?"; 1 c. di Indice. (In alcuni esempl. figura 1 tav. in più, non numerata). - Secondo volume: 1 frontesp. italiano, 1 frontesp. tedesco, 1 antiporta incisa, 2 cc. con dedica a ?"Giuseppe Primo re de?' Romani?" in italiano, 2 cc. con dedica in tedesco, 1 seconda antiporta incisa, 1 c. di avviso al lettore in italiano, 1 c. di avviso al lettore in tedesco, 1 c. con Imprimatur, seguono 118 figure numerate, quasi tutte con testo bilingue a fronte, 1 c. di Indice in italiano, 1 c. di Indice in tedesco, 1 antiporta all?'Appendice, l?'Appendice con la ?"Breve instruttione per dipingere a fresco?" in italiano di 4 cc., e in tedesco di 4 cc. Le incisioni all?'acquaforte sono di Vincenzo Mariotti, allievo dell?'Autore. Importantissimo e fondamentale trattato per la storia della teoria della prospettiva, con le due parti provenienti da due diverse versioni ma "entrambe in prima edizione". La Prima parte appartiene alla versione bilingue latino-italiana (rispettivamente in caratteri corsivo e tondo) e la Seconda parte appartiene alla versione bilingue italiano-tedesco (entrambi in carattere tondo). Il lavoro del Pozzo fu sostanzialmente nuovo e originale, in quanto concepito per soddisfare le esigenze pratiche di architetti, scenografi e pittori, senza però mai allontanarsi dall?'esattezza scientifica. In questo senso il libro segna un ritorno alla trattatistica di prospettiva da parte di ?"operatori?" artistici, che per quasi tutto il ?'600 ne avevano praticamente lasciato il monopolio agli uomini di scienza. Nella prima parte dell?'opera sono trattati i canoni basilari della materia e le regole fondamentali con la loro applicazione ai differenti ordini architettonici. Nella seconda parte il Pozzo descrive un procedimento originale per disegnare la prospettiva, applicato a cupole, altari, fontane, scale e a vari elementi architettonici. Il libro si conclude con la descrizione della tecnica dell?'affresco, profondamente conosciuta e spesso utilizzata dal Pozzo. Cfr. Studi e documenti d?'architettura, n. 9-10 - Riccardi,I,317-318: ?"Queste due parti furono più volte ristampate in Roma e furono tradotte in tedesco, francese e inglese - Berlin Kat.,4725 - Comolli,III,173: ?"Ecco la miglior opera che abbiamo in questo genere.. Uscì per la prima volta in Roma nel 1693 e 1700 nella Stamperia del Komarek in due grandi tomi in folio..?" - Fowler,251 - Cicognara,854 - Cat. n. 1 (1983) Libreria Archivolto, p. 68. Lievi arross. solo margin. a un vol., altrimenti esemplare su carta distinta ben conservato. Opera molto rara. "Andrea Pozzo, pittore, architetto e teorico della prospettiva (Trento 1642 - Vienna 1709). Lavorò dapprima a Milano, dove entrò nella Compagnia di Gesù, poi a Genova, a Venezia, nell?'Emilia, a Mondovì e a Torino. Chiamato a Roma nel 1681, vi svolse un?'inensa attività e vi compì il suo capolavoro: la grandiosa decorazione della tribuna e della volta di S. Ignazio, raffigurante la gloria del Santo (1685-91 ca.). Per invito di Leopoldo I si recò a Vienna nel 1703 e vi rimase sino alla morte. Somma dell?'illusionismo barocco è il trattato teorico ?"Prospectiva pictorum et architectorum?" (1693-1702)". Così Diz. Treccani, IX, p. 716.

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 working copy of a rare book. 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).

        An humble remonstrance of the Batchelors, in and about London, to the Honourable House, in answer to a late Paper, intituled A petition of the Ladies for Husbands.

Wing H3616 L; CH, CLC, IU, MH, WF, Y. A satirical reply to The petition of the ladies of London and Westminster to the honourable House for husbands. 1693. "They complain that the Holy State of Matrimony has of late been very irreverently spoken of, that it has been rhymed to Death in Sonnet, and murdered in Effigie upon the stage. Now we would not be guilty of that ill breeding, to say that the Ladies all along found the Matter, and the Satyrists only found the words. However we are assured from all hands, that those Persons who have taken the greatest pains to expose that Holy State, were all of 'em married .and we hope the Ladies don't expect we should either defend or condemn them till we are married our selves, and Consequently in a Capacity to judge on which side the Truth lies.

        Some Thoughts Concerning Education

      London: Printed for A. and J.Churchill, 1693., 1693. 8vo. pp. 4 p.l., 262, [2]. contemporary mottled calf (front joint cracked, short split in upper rear joint, spine ends bit chipped, lacking front flyleaf, discolouration to outer margin in some gatherings, outer margin of last few leaves with slight fraying). a few old manuscript marginal notes. First Edition, First Issue, with with slightly skewed woodcut ornament on title, catchword ‘I my’ on A2v, and misprint ‘Patronnge’ on A3v (Yolton reversing priority given in Wing). Locke’s treatise grew out of a correspondence dating from 1684, between himself and his friend Edward Clarke, whom he was advising on the education of his son. Locke was in Holland at the time. "His thought was marked by a ready understanding of, and sympathy with, children. Three main thoughts dominate the work. First, the individual aptitudes, capacities, and idiosyncrasies of the child should govern learning, not arbitrary curricular or rote learning taught by the rod. Second, Locke placed the health of the body and the development of a sound character ahead of intellectual learning. In the third place, he saw that play, high spirits, and the "gamesome humor" natural to children should govern the business of learning wherever possible. Compulsory learning is irksome; where there is play in learning, there is also joy in it. Throughout he placed emphasis on good example, practice, and use rather than on precepts, rules, and punishment. The work was an implicit criticism of his own education at Westminster and Oxford, which he found unpleasant and largely useless." (James Gordon Clapp, Encyc. of Philosophy, p. 500) Wing 2762A.

        An Answer to the Scotch Presbyterian Eloquence

      London - Tho. Anderson, 1693 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Very scarce anti prespyterian work. Bound in grey paper covered boards with blue cloth covered spine. Very scarce. Collates complete. George Ridpath (d 1726), journalist and pamphleteer. Soon after the revolution of 1688 Ridpath became active as a journalist in the capital. Writing under the pseudonym Will Laick, in 1693 he made a violent attack on the episcopal party in Scotland in An Answer to the Scottish Presbyterian Eloquence and A Continuation of the Answer. These were criticized, with equal virulence, in Alexander Munro's Apology for the Clergy of Scotland and The spirit of calumny and slander examined, chastised, and exposed, in a letter to a malicious libeller addressed to Mr George Ridpath, newsmonger, near St Martins-in-the-Fields, which identified Ridpath as the head of the presbyterian party in Scotland. Ridpath subsequently responded in The Scots Episcopal Innocence and The queries and protestation of the Scots clergy against the authority of the Presbyterian general assemblies (both 1694). Two years later he was apparently involved in surveillance activities against the bishop of Glasgow and Alexander Munro. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is some mild wear to the extremities including a few marks to the boards. Internally the pages are generally slightly age-toned with several handling marks to many pages and a few stains to the title page. There is a small tear with loss to the bottom of the final page but with no loss to the text. There is a smallink stamp mark to the front pastedown. Overall the volume is in good only condition but a very scarce work and complete..

        I. Carte Particuliere des Costes de Normandie Depuis Dieppe jusqu'a la pointe de la Perçée en Bessin. Faite Par Ordre Exprez du Roy de France

      Mortier], Paris [but Amsterdam 1693 - This large scale, beautifully coloured chart which shows the coast of France from Sainte Mère-Englise to Dieppe, comes from Le Neptune François , a lavish collection of charts produced collaboratively by Hubert Jaillot and Pierre Mortier. As Koeman discovered in his research on this work (see P. Mortier, Atlantes Neerlandici, Maritime Atlases, p. 423-4), Mortier re-engraved the plates after the original French prototype Neptune François by Charles Pène and others in a richly coloured edition and added to the titles the words "Levée et Gravée par ordre du Roy à Paris 1693" though they were in fact engraved, coloured and published in Amsterdam by Mortier. Pierre Mortier's grandparents were French émigrés, who left France in about 1625 to live in Leiden. His parents settled in Amsterdam in 1661 or 1662. Pierre Mortier grew up in Amsterdam but lived in Paris from 1681 to about 1685 where he must have gotten into the book trade. Once he was in Amsterdam again he specialized in French books and maintained his relationships with Parisian publishers. Amsterdam was at this time the international marketplace for books, especially books forbidden by repressive governments. He established himself in the field of cartographical publishing by offering editions of French maps, primarily Sanson's and Jaillot's to a public tired of the superb but dated Dutch offerings. Working on a scale larger than the typical Dutch folio map and providing the new insights of French geography, he was immensely successful. The charts in his version of Le Neptune François are outstanding examples of cartographical art. They are among the most beautiful printed sea charts ever made. This chart gives the soundings and shorelines for this area of French coastline along the English Channel including towns Bayeux and Rouen. Koeman, M. Mor 1, #16. Engraved with full, period colour.

        Ammiani Marcellini Rerum Gestarum qui de xxxi SupersuntLibri XVIII

      Leiden - Peter Vander 1693 - A veryscarce copy of this seventeenth-century edition of the histories of Ammianus Marcellinus, edited by Jacobus Grovonius. In Latin. At Rome, Marcellinus wrote a history of the Roman empire from the accession of Nerva to the death of Valens at the Battle of Adrianople, in effect writing a continuation of the history of Tacitus. Res Gestae (Rerum gestarum Libri XXXI) was originally in thirty-one books, but the first thirteen are lost (modern historian T. D. Barnes argues that the original was actually thirty-six books, which would mean that eighteen books had been lost). The surviving eighteen books cover the period from 353 to 378. As a whole it has been considered extremely valuable, being a clear, comprehensive and in general impartial account of events by a contemporary. Like many ancient historians, Ammianus had a strong political and religious agenda to pursue, however, and he contrasted Constantius II with Julian to the former's constant disadvantage; like all ancient writers he was skilled in rhetoric, and this shows in his work. The editor, Jacobus Gronovius a. k. a. Jacob Gronow (1645 1716) was a Dutch classical scholar. WIth thirteen plates, two of which are folding,(seemingly complete) as well as numerous illustrations in the text. Bookplate of John William Willis Bund to front pastedown. Book eighteen of eighteen only. Condition: In a quarter-leather binding. Externally worn, with marks to the boards and loss to the spine labels. Wear to spine and extremities. Internally, firmly bound. Copperplate ink signature and ink inscription to recto of front free-endpaper. Chart deatched but present. Pages show signs of age-toning, with some scattered spotting and foxing. Overall: GOOD. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      - Amsterdam, W. Waasberge, 1693. Folio (315 x 205mm). pp. (6), 208, 258, (9), with engraved frontispiece, engraved portrait of the author, 1 folding engraved map of China and 34 double-page engraved plates and about 100 engravings in the text. Contemporary calf, richly gilt ornamented spine in 7 compartments with red gilt lettered label (head of spine chipped). Third edition of this beautifully illustrated work on China. The first edition was published in 1665. "Jan Nieuhof was a "Dutch traveller and adventurer" (1618-72). Between 1640 and 1644 Nieuhof was serving as an official of the Dutch West India Company in Brazil, but by 1655 he was in Batavia, in Java, as a servant of the Dutch East India Company. From there he accompanied Pieter de Goyer as a member of the Dutch embassy to Peking. In 1665 Nieuhof published what is regarded as the definitive account of the Dutch embassy to Peking, and it is for that he is best known" (Howgego p. 752). The beautifully engraved plates show Chinese towns, Chinese life and animal- and plant life. The present work describes the first embassy of the Dutch East India Company to the court of the Emperor of China in the years 1655-57 in command of Pieter de Goyer and Jakob de Keyser. It is the most profusely illustrated work on China of the period. The Paolinxi plate mentioned in the index is only present in the Latin edition and is always lacking. A fine and clean copy.Landwehr, VOC, 539. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Paris. -1719. 1693 - Seven volumes. Engraved portraits. Quarto. Contemporary calf, spines gilt extra. Moderate rubbing to extremities; head and toe of spines chipped on first, second, and fifth volumes; hinges starting on a few volumes; some minor worming in spine areas. Armorial bookplate in each volume. Else a very good set, internally clean except for only occasional foxing and tanning. A vast collection of all the treaties and commercial agreements entered into by France with other nations from 1435 to 1700, including many treaties relating to America. The NUC entry for this work describes it in six volumes and locates five sets. Sabin states the work consists of six regular volumes plus two additional volumes of twenty- nine treaties with separate titlepages for each. This set includes the first of these additional volumes, but not the second. An important collection of treaties, with much material relating to French possessions in America. Frances Davenport identifies eleven treaties for which the Leonard set gives the first or first French printing between 1556 and 1684, as follow: Davenport 20. Treaty between France and Spain, 1556, by which the French agreed to stay out of Spanish America and the Spanish agreed to leave alone French fisheries off the North American coast. Davenport 22. Treaty between France and Spain, 1585. A similar agreement to keep France out of the Indies. Davenport 26. Treaty between France and England, 1603. This treaty was made while England and Spain were still at war, and arranged for the French and British to take concerted action, with England raising a fleet to attack the Spanish New World dominions. It became a dead letter when James I made peace with Spain the next year. Davenport 29. A defensive alliance between the Netherlands, France and England, in which the latter two agreed not to interfere with Dutch trade in the New World. Davenport 32. Treaty between the Netherlands and France, agreeing not to interfere with each other's trade in the New World. Davenport 34. Treaty between England and France, settling the brief war between the powers of 1627-28. In this war the British had seized much of New France, including Quebec, which was restored with the peace. Davenport 36. Treaty between Great Britain and France (St. Germain-en-laye). This treaty followed up Davenport 34, above, and called for the specific restoration of all of Canada; England gave up Nova Scotia reluctantly, and only in the face of French naval superiority. Davenport 37. Treaty between France and Portugal, 1641. Portugal, having won independence back from Spain, agrees to cooperate with the French and Dutch against Spain in the New World. Davenport 68. Agreement between Spain and the Netherlands, made by Spain in an attempt to defend its New World possessions. Davenport 73. Cessation of hostilities in America between France and Sweden on one hand, and Denmark and Brandenburg on the other, 1679. This war had involved battles between the West Indian possessions of all powers, and restored the status quo while allowing free trade in West Indian ports. Davenport 77. Treaty between Spain and France, 1684 (Ratisbon). This treaty supposedly brought peace between the Spanish and French throughout the world, but was really a screen by Louis XIV for his incursions on Spanish dominions in the New World. Immediately after it he authorized La Salle to start his colony on the Gulf of Mexico, and attempted to seize northern New Spain. A most important collection. SABIN 40104.
