        Tagera, Fig. 53

      Hendrik Adriaan van Rheede tot Draakenstein was a Dutch traveler, the one time Governor of Cochin and a naturalist whom worked for the Dutch Each 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, which collaboration of 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 from “Hortus Indicus Malabaricus,” Tagera, Fig. 53, measures 15.25” x 18.5” and is in excellent condition with light staining around the edges and evidence of previous repair to the central crease. As illustrated on this plate, the plants are described by their names in the regional language of Malayalam, which was the language used by the natives of Cohin during the 17th century. Expertly hand-colored, this engraving shows rich green stems and leaves, highlighted and shaded stylistically, with delicate yellow and orange flowers. Also shown on this plant are the seed pods and the roots, adding a scientific inquiry into this plant. Illustrated separately from the plant are the individual sections of the flowers, the pod and the seeds of the plant.

        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 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).

        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.

      - 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.

      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.

Later elegant half calf, sine with raised bands and lettered in gilt, a little worn. Inner margin foxing, lower corners finger-soiled, else fine. First edition of an exceedingly rare Spanish imprint on Peruvian native¿s census. Castillo served for 24 years in Peru in both civil and military positions; he last worked as an accountant for the tributes paid by the natives. Spanish imprints on Peruvian native¿s census´ are not common. At the end, Fernandez de Madrigal a member of the Consejo de su Magestad and a Major in the War Council for the Indies and Peru, certifies that Castillo gave a report on the General Numeration of the Indians of such Provinces, and for the reintegration of the Mita of the minerals from Guancabelica and Potosi. A most rare imprint, of which we find no copy anywhere; only a ¿Copia de un informe, que hizo al¿ Conde de la Moncloa¿ Don Pedro Antonio del Castillo y San Juan, Contador que fue de retassas y tributos de aquel Reyno¿, published in 1689 is found at a Spanish institution.

        Document signed ("Le Duc de Saint Simon").

      Paris, 21. II. 1693. - 1 half page on a single 4to leaf (242 x 180 mm). Receipt to Jean Brunet, receiver at La Rochelle "de la somme de mille quarante livres qu’il nous a envoyée par une lettre de change tirée sur Claude Laquain banquier à Paris". The courtier and father of the renowned memoirist Saint-Simon signed this receipt at the very end of his long life, just over two months before his death, as is graphically displayed in his shaky signature. Saint-Simon had entered the service of Louis XIII in 1627 and rose to become a royal councillor. His lands were in the vicinity of La Rochelle, given him by royal grant after the fall of the Huguenot-dominated city in 1628. Although, by the end of his life, under Louis XIV he held little effective power in the royal court he maintained an unusual (even excessive) sense of the dignity and importance of his family, a state of mind doubtless bequeathed to his son. - Transverse fold; some light foxing.

      Paris. . 1693 - Six volumes. Quarto. Modern half morocco and marbled boards, gilt morocco labels. Old small library stamp on titlepages. Scattered light tanning and an occasional fox mark, small bit of worming in lower margin of some leaves in second and third volumes, else internally clean and a near fine set. This massive compilation is the first major collection of French treaties, beginning in 1435 and running to 1692, including many treaties relating to America. Many important French state papers appeared here for the first time, especially ones from the 15th and 16th centuries. It was not until the early 17th century that published versions of treaties began to appear simultaneously with the event, and even then treaties between kings were often secret, or contained secret sections, for decades. Thus, the Leonard set offers either first or very early printings of many documents of the greatest importance, including a number with importance for the Americas. 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, covering treaties from 1697 to 1719. This set includes the original six volumes published in 1693, and is complete in and of itself. Frances Davenport identifies eleven 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.

      Cologne, Pierre Marteau, 1693, - in-8, [16]-432 pp., avec une gravure du XVIIIe siècle maladroitement rajoutée en guise de frontispice, veau blond, dos à nerfs orné, tranches rouges (reliure du XVIIIe siècle). Accroc à la coiffe sup., mais bon exemplaire.Édition originale de cet important recueil de satires, d'épigrammes et de pièces en vers dirigées contre le gouvernement des deux cardinaux (Richelieu, pp. 1-172 ; Mazarin, pp. 175-217) et celui de leur "successeur" Colbert (pp. 219-287). La partie consacrée à Fouquet (pp. 289-310) est surtout composée de pièces favorables au surintendant, ce qui est encore une façon de dénigrer Colbert. L'ouvrage rappelle l'extraordinaire impopularité des deux cardinaux-ministres, qui fut systématiquement voilée ultérieurement par une historiographie savante globalement favorable, avec une insistance démesurée sur la construction de l'Etat, au rebours de ce qu'éprouvaient réellement les contemporains.

[See M'Clintock, Cyclopaedia of Biblical Lit.] Among his better known works is a commentary on Balthasar Bekker's book on witchcraft. Van der Waeyen's interest in demonology is also apparent in this collection of tracts which contains two essays (485 pages) on the demon AZAZEL who was associated with the Israelite scape-goat ritual.

      Domenico de' Rossi, Rome 1693 - Unbound A very fine suite of richly hand-coloured plates offering a stunning visual record of one of the best of the decorative interior schemes carried out by Raphael in Rome. This wonderful series records Raphael's 'Cupid and Psyche' series of frescoes, carried out by him between 1516 and 1518 in the Loggia of Psyche in the villa Farnesina in Rome. The series also comes with a title and an eleventh plate of the ceiling fresco in the adjoining Sala di Galatea, executed in 1512: neither the plate nor the title are present here. Originally published by the Rossis, the engravings are the work of Nicolas Dorigny (1658-1746) who lived and worked in Rome between about 1690 and 1719. The painter, classicist, and art historian Giovanni Pietro Bellori (1613-1696) provided the text at the foot of the plates (appropriate excerpts from Apuleuis's Golden Ass). "Raphael Invenit: Stampe da Rafaello" (1985) Dorigny 37-46; cf. Brunet IV, 1111; cf. Berlin Kat 4066. 10 hand-coloured engraved plates by Dorigny on laid paper (each 15 7/8 x 26 inches approximately), titles and imprints printed in gold, black ink-ruled borders, each plate cut to the edge of the image, mounted on large sheets of contemporary thick laid paper (each 29 3/8 x 40 3/8 inches approximately).

        Engraved globe Gore

      Venice: Vincenzo Coronelli, 1693. A SPLENDID EXAMPLE OF THE WORK OF THE GREAT LATE-17TH CENTURY CARTOGRAPHER VINCENZO CORONELLI 17" (height) x 10 ¼"(base) This globe gore represents the most advanced state of 17th-century knowledge regarding the geography of the Great Lakes and eastern portion of what is now the United States of America. As Royal Cartographer to King Louis XIV in the 1680s, mapmaker Vincenzo Coronelli gained special access to the most current records on American geography sent in from the colonies, and he relied heavily on manuscripts from the discoveries of the explorer Louis Joliet and of Jean-Baptiste-Louis Franquelin, official cartographer of maps relating to New France. Though this map was published roughly ten years after Coronelli's return to Venice, its sophisticated geographical information reflects the invaluable knowledge he had acquired in Paris. Following La Salle's 1681 to 1687 journey to its mouth, the Mississippi River is marked, and French aspirations can clearly be seen in the title Canada spread across nearly all the lands east of the Mississippi. Coronelli was both cleric and encyclopedist, with a particular interest in geography and cartography. He joined the Franciscan Order in Venice in 1665 and six years later entered the convent of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, which was to become his professional workshop. He was sole author or contributor to over one hundred and forty titles and produced several hundred maps, either printed separately or as parts of atlases. Coronelli published his groundbreaking cartographic work in a number of notable publications, including the "Atlante Veneto" (1691-1692), the "Corso Geografico Universale" (1692 & 1695) and the "Isolario" (1696-1697). Most of his globe gores were obviously meant to be assembled into spherical form and sold as complete globes, though a very few examples, including this map, were kept aside to be published in sheet form in Coronelli's exceptionally rare "Libro dei Globi" ("Book of Globes"; 1693 & 1701), from which this map originates. After he completed his service for Louis XIV, Coronelli returned to Venice in 1684 and founded the "Accademia Cosmografica degli Argonauti," a geographical society with membership drawn from the aristocracy and church hierarchy, and a year later he was appointed Cosmographer to the Republic of Venice. With a secure financial base provided by the society, Coronelli could ensure that his maps of America would be widely dispersed across Europe, and the evolution of the European conception of the Americas is depicted with vivid clarity on Coronelli's striking map. At the end of the seventeenth century, he was perhaps the most famous map publisher in Europe and received constant requests from his contemporaries for information that would enable them to bring their atlases up to date. Shortly after his death, however, his name and work were quickly forgotten, and he remained in obscurity for several centuries. The lasting influence of his work is undeniable, however, and modern appreciation has more than compensated for the earlier lack of recognition.. Book.
