      Madrid 1693 - An early Spanish census on the natives of Peru. N.d. [1693]. N.p. [Madrid]. In folio (289 mm x 204 mm). 2 ff. 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.

        Les Deserts d'Egypte, de Thebaide d'zbie, de Sirie. &c: ou Sont exactement Marques Les Lieuz Habitez Par Les Saincts Peres Des Deserts a Paris Chez E: Michalet 1693

      Paris 1693 - Copper-plate engraving with full period color. Sheet size: 24 1/2 x 36 1/2". Inventory#: p367pmat. This is a highly decorative late seventeenth century map of present-day Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Cyprus, plus much of Saudi Arabia. These nations were provinces of the Ottoman Empire when Michalet created this delightful map. The map is unusual for its northwest orientation, and its focus on the lives of early Christian ascetics, whose two great centers were Egypt and Syria. The face of the map is liberally sprinkled with finely engraved miniature vignettes that portray the legendary feats of these ancient hermits. In the Arabian desert, Anchorites, or solitary monks, are burned by Arabs. In Syria, fearless hermits confront marauding lions. Near Antioch stands the pillar of Simeon Stylites (about A.D. 390-459), who spent thirty-six years praying from his fifty-foot-high perch and preaching to the mobs of pilgrims who came to hear this famous holy man.

        RECUEIL DES TRAITEZ DE PAIX, DE TREVE, DE NEUTRALITE, DE CONFEDERATION, D'ALLIANCE, ET DE COMMERCE, FAITS PAR LES ROIS DE FRANCE, AVEC TOUS LES PRINCES, ET POTENTATS DE L'EUROPE, ET AUTRES, DEPUIS PRES DE TROIS SIECLES.

      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. Enfin, il faut signaler, à la fin du recueil, le Paris ridicule du fameux poète sodomite Claude Le Petit (1638-1662), qui fut brûlé en Grève pour son B. des Muses, ou les Neuf pucelles putains.

Johann Van der Waeyen (1639-1701) was a Frisian Minister, scholar and controversialist. In 1677 he was forced to leave his position in Middelburg and move to Franeker. [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. The book also contains a commentary on Paul's Epistle to the Galatians and several other essays. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Psyches et Amoris nuptiae fabula a Raphaele Sanctio Urbinate Romae in Farnesianis hortis Transtyberim ad veterum aemulationem ac laudem colorum luminibus expressa a. Dorigny. delineata et incisa, et a Ioanne Petro Belloriio notis illustrata]

      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.

        THE WONDERS OF THE INVISIBLE WORLD: BEING AN ACCOUNT OF THE TRYALS OF SEVERAL WITCHES LATELY EXECUTED IN NEW- ENGLAND: AND OF SEVERAL REMARKABLE CURIOSITIES THEREIN OCCURRING

      London: John Dunton..., 1693.. 62 [i.e. 64]pp. Half title. Small quarto. 19th-century crushed blue morocco by Bedford, boards ruled in gilt, spine gilt, t.e.g. Neatly rebacked, with original spine laid down. Discreet repair to top outer corner of first few leaves. Quite clean internally, untrimmed, near fine. The Menzies-Goelet copy, especially notable for being in untrimmed condition, of one of the most famous of early New England books. This is the second British edition, following the first edition published in Boston the same year and the first British edition published in London the same year, thus being the third edition overall, slightly abridged. Cotton Mather took a deep interest in the cases of persons believed to be possessed by evil spirits in Boston and elsewhere in the Bay Colony. After an outbreak in Boston in 1688, he followed closely the events in Salem in the spring of 1692, when a group of young women claimed to be possessed. After mounting hysteria on the part of the civil and religious authorities, over one hundred persons were arrested, and nineteen hanged. The cases were tried in an atmosphere of terror, but by the fall the witch hunt had subsided and recriminations, led by Increase Mather, set in against the prosecutors. Cotton Mather's work, however, was written in September, while the cases were still in the courts. His intention was to expose witchcraft and to support his friends in the government who were pursuing the cases. He gives detailed descriptions of each case and the events surrounding it, thereby providing an invaluable record; however, Mather's stance in this matter has done more than anything else to earn him the condemnation of later generations. This copy appeared in the Menzies sale in 1875, described as "of the greatest rarity in uncut condition" and was sold for $110. A pencilled note made at the time asserts it is the only known uncut copy. It reappeared at the Goelet sale in 1935 (at the depths of the Depression), described as a "superb copy," where it was hammered down for $75 to the dealer, Charles Heartman. All the early editions of this work are extremely rare, especially the Boston edition and the present one. HOLMES, COTTON MATHER 454-D. HOWES M399, "b." EUROPEAN AMERICANA 693/117. SABIN 46605.

        Nieuwe geographische Nederlandsche reise- en zak-atlas; . . .Amsterdam, Jan Christiaan Sepp, 1773. Oblong 4to (13.5×20 cm). With 74 engraved maps (an unnumbered key map, and the others numbered 1-66 and A-G, those with letters outside the borders of the Republic). The key numbers and letters in the key map are printed in red from a separate engraved plate. Coloured by a contemporary hand, partly in outline. 20th-century half goatskin, with the backstrip of its 19th-century binding laid down.

      Van der Heijden & Blonk, De kaart van de Republiek 127, I A-B; Koeman, Sep 1; STCN (5 complete copies but no indication of their issues). First and only edition (first issue?) of a rare pocket atlas of the Dutch Republic (the Republic of the Seven United Provinces of the Netherlands), with numerous itineraries for travel to and within the Netherlands. The Amsterdam bookseller Jan Christiaan Sepp compiled it and dedicated it to Jan (Jean) Deutz van Assendelft (1693-1741), former lay judge of the city of Amsterdam. The key map, titled De VII Vereenigde Nederlandsche Provinciën and sometimes bound in as a frontispiece, shows how the other 73 untitled detail maps fit together. They show the entire United Provinces and a few areas outside its borders at a scale of about 1:250,000. Although all complete copies appear to contain the same 73 detail maps and the key map, the present title-page and preface note 75 maps, apparently an error that was corrected to 74. With some soiling and the title-page creased, but still in good condition. Binding with joint of the front board broken and paper sides foxed. Pocket-atlas of the Dutch Republic, designed for practical use by travellers.

      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.

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).

        Nouveau Voyage de la Terre Australe , contenant Les Coûtumes & les Moeurs des Australiens

      Paris: Claude Barbin, 1693. Duodecimo, 177 pp., title-page just shaved at fore-edge, edges untrimmed; an attractive copy in crushed brown morocco by Sangorski. Lost among the "Australiens" Scarce seventeenth-century Paris edition of one of the most significant of all imaginary voyages, with clear links to the wider literature of travel and a connection with Quiros. The "south land" is used as the setting for this remarkable work of fiction, 'perhaps the most famous of all the fictitious accounts of Terra Australis' (Mackaness) and 'a major utopia, rich in satire and iconoclasm' (Gibson). Of particular note is the fact that Foigny's book refers to the inhabitants of his Terre Australe as "Australiens" - the first work to use the term to describe an inhabitant of the southern continent. Foigny (circa 1630-1692) had a turbulent life. A promising career as a Franciscan monk was scotched by his 'licentious behaviour' and he was forced to flee to Geneva and Protestantism. Scandal continued to dog him while he was in Switzerland, and he was forced to leave in 1684 leaving behind a large family and a pregnant maid. Foigny rejoined the Catholic faith, and died in a convent eight years later. In this marvellous novel the hero Sadeur is twice kidnapped and four times shipwrecked, ultimately being plucked from the sea by a gigantic winged monster which drops him on the shores of Western Australia. Most of the novel is set in western Australia and openly borrows from Dutch voyages in the region, but the hermaphrodite society Sadeur discovers is entirely Foigny's invention; in this Australian world marked by a rational rejection of the body, Sadeur's curiosity and levity about the topic is considered very de trop, yet worse his 'propensity to unseemly arousal' (Rees).

With engraved title-page and 22 engraved portraits, maps and plans, partly by Jan and Casper Luyken (8 double-page). (30),232; 242; 94,(16) pp.* First and only edition. - 'Daniel Havart travelled to the Indies for the Zeeland chamber of the VOC in 1672. He stayed there from 1672 to 1685 on the Coromandel coast. His book is a standard work on the Coromandel coast and the VOC factories there' (Landwehr, VOC, 559). For a long time the Dutch East India Company was the most powerful trader in India before it became an English colony. This book gives much valuable information on the Dutch on the long eastern coast of India. 'Havart's Op- en ondergang van Coromandel is still an indispensable source for the study of Coromandel and Golconda, in the latter half of the seventeenth century. While it is sometimes mentioned in modern bibliographical and historiographical lists and essays, scholars of the twentienth century have generally ignored it or have used it only superficiall. Not only does Havart add considerably to general knowledge of the region, as for example by his excellent description of Hayatnagar, but he also provides a corrective to the usual, and overly heavy, reliance of modern scholars on the writings of Tavernier and Thévenot. Havart's Dutch contemporaries were better informed' (Lach, Asia in the making of Europe, III, p.1094). - Extremely rare; in fine condition.Tiele 458; Cat. NHSM I, p.241; Van Eeghen en Van der Kellen 227; Peters, In steen geschreven, p. 65-83.

He produced the first English language dictionary devoted to mathematics.
