        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. 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).

        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.

He produced the first English language dictionary devoted to mathematics. In his Mechanical Exercises he sets out to describe the chief trades of the day with illustrations of machinery, tools, furnaces, locks, plans etc. It is one of the earliest English books to describe and illustrate the tools of various trades and explain their uses.

MANTOISSA Codicis Juris Gentium Diplomatici ex recensione G. G. L.

      Hannover, Literis & impensis Samuelis Ammonii (sumptibus Gotfridi Freytagii, Bibliopolae Hanover & Guelfebytani), 1693-1700.. Folio. Titelblatt, (32), 24, 479 S.; Titelblatt, (20), 180 S.; (12), 380 S. 2 Teile in einem späteren Pergamentband mit fünf durchgezogenen Bünden.. Ende des 17. Jahrhunderts wurde das Völkerrecht auf jene Grundlage gestellt, die es zu einer eigenständigen Disziplin in der Jurisprudenz werden ließ. Verantwortlich dafür war der Universalgelehrte Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646 - 1716). Zutiefst davon überzeugt, daß internationale Organsisations- und Rechtsformen aufgebaut werden können und müssen, hielt er an der Idee eines allgemeinen (allen Völkern) verbindlichen Völkerrechts fest. Im Mai 1693 erschien der Codex iuris gentium. Mit diesem Werk schuf Leibniz die Editio princeps des modernen Völkerrechts. Der Sinn des Werkes ist entsprechend der Idee von Leibniz die Wiedergabe der geltenden zwischenstaatlichen Verträge. Damit entwickelte Leibniz die Vorstellung von der positivistischen Geltung der geschlossenen Verträge. Dies spiegelt auch den Aufbau des Werkes wieder: neben einer Vorrede und einer Einleitung von Leibniz enthält der Band die von Leibniz ausgesuchten Urkunden des 12. bis 15. Jahrhunderts, denen er völkerrechtlichen Charakter attestiert. Um die Bedeutung dieses großartigen Urkundenwerkes zu ermessen, dürfen die Folgen des 30jährigen Krieges und vor allem der Westphälische Friedensschluß von 1648 nicht vergessen werden. Letzterer verschaffte den emporgekommenen Landesherren nicht gerade geringe Möglichkeiten, die europäische Politik mitzubestimmen. Neben den Großmächten wie Spanien, den Niederlanden, Frankreich, England und Schweden traten neben dem Kaiser und seiner Hausmacht, den Habsburgern, neue Machtzentren auf: Bayern, Sachsen, Hannover und Brandenburg. Die ständige internationale Unruhe, die bestürzenden Kriegsereignisse lehrten die Fürsten, daß ein Staat nur Bestand habe, wenn er sich auf eine starke militärische Macht stütze. Obendrein hatte das Christentum die ethisch-moralische Kraft verloren, bindende Klammer für die einzelnen Staaten zu sein. In dieser Zeit kam mit ungeheurer Vehemenz der Gedanke des Naturrechts als bindende Grundlage auch für die Staatengemein- schaft auf. In dieser Zeit entwickelte Leibniz die Vorstellung von der positivistischen Geltung der geschlossenen Verträge. Fremd war der Gedanke nicht, aus der Rechtspraxis heraus gestaltende, normative Kraft erwachsen zu lassen, denn das Corpus juris civilis, das Leibniz sehr gut kannte, wies ähnliche Strukturen auf. Auch hier war es Fallrecht, das normative Kraft innerhalb der europäischen Rechtskultur entfaltete. Leibniz wandte sich vor allem gegen die moralisierenden Tendenzen seiner Zeit. Die Geltung der positiven Satzungen im Völkerrecht stellt sich auch gegen die aus obersten Prinzipien einer naturrechtlich begründeten "Weltanschaung", wie sie Grotius und Pufendorf entwickelt haben. Verständlich wird dies aus der erlebten Katastrophe des 30jährigen Krieges. Einen ähnlich untauglichen Versuch unternahm Helmut Coing nach dem 2. Weltkrieg, als er in einer durchaus bedeutenden, aber erfolglosen Schrift "Die obersten Grundsätze des Rechts. Ein Versuch zur Neubegründung des Naturrechts, Heidelberg 1947" ähnliches unternahm. Wäre Coing ein Rechtshistoriker mit kritischem Bewußtsein gewesen, wäre er nicht diesem Wiederholungsirrtum erlegen. Vielleicht, hätte er mehr den kühlen, rationalen Leibniz und nicht so viel den schwärmerischen Pufendorf gelesen, so wäre dies auch einem unkritischen Geist aufgegangen. Leibniz war ein moderner Jurist, das kann man mit Fug und Recht behaupten. Einerseits erkannte er die Notwendigkeit moralischer Bindung für alle menschlichen Rechtsetzungen, andererseits befürwortete er bei der wissenschaftlichen Begründung des Völkerrechts einen Maßstab in Form der "konkreten Tatsache des politischen Lebens". Hier klingt beinahe schon Realpolitik an, auf alle Fälle ist es ein Versuch, theologisch ebenso wie philosophisches Denken und (natur)wissenschaftlichen Fortschritt in einer Balance zu halten. Auf dem juristischen Sektor -Leibniz schloß auch sein juristisches Studium mit der ihm eigenen Schnelle und Gründlichkeit ab- entwickelte er famose Ideen und Denkanstöße: sei es im Kampf gegen die Hexenverfolgung, bei der Bekämpfung der Körper- und Todesstrafen oder bei seinem Plädoyer für die Einführung der mündlichen Verhandlung im Zivilprozeß. Als gerade 21jähriger veröffentlichte er eine Schrift über eine grundlegende Reform des juristischen Studiums:"Nova methodus discendae docendaeque iurisprudentiae", er verfolgte Pläne einer Systematisierung des Römischen Rechts und regte Kodifikationen an. Vieles ist bei Leibniz Versuch geblieben, war oftmals nur Gedankenanregung, blieb Torso in der Ausführung: der Codex juris gentium ist sein einziges zu Ende gedachtes und veröffentlichtes Werk. Kollation: Ttlbl., 15nn.Bll., 479 S. VORGEBUNDENES Werk: a. Caspar KLOCK, Tractatus de aerario, Nürnberg 1671.

        Some Thoughts Concerning Education

      London: A. & J. Churchill, 1693.. London:: A. & J. Churchill,. 1693.. Second edition. Hardcover. Very good condition. Locke writes to his friend Edward Clarke, his thoughts on education, "Tis what makes the great difference in Mankind: The little, and almost insensible Impressions on our tender Infancies, have very important and lasting Consequences" (p2). The Contents of the Sections appears at the back of the volume, and begins with "Alteration" and ends with "Writing". Small 8vo, v, 262pp, Contents (ii). Handsomely rebound in period style in full calf, the text bright and extremely clean. This is the second edition, with "Patronage." on leaf A3v, line 19. & & A milestone in education theory and is now considered one of the earliest expressions of the principals of modern developmental psychology. Locke advanced three principal theories; that the talents and abilities of a child should dictate that child&#39;s education rather than strict curriculums and the threat of the rod; physical and emotional health were essential to the intellectual development of children; and that exercise and play were a vital part of a child&#39;s overall education. In addition, Locke also argued the need for pictures in books for children; images are vital in the learning process, providing reference points for memories. It was published in 53 editions in the 18th century alone.

Legatura strettamente coeva in cartonato alla rustica con titoli in oro su tassello al dorso. Esemplare genuino, marginoso ed in ottimo stato di conservazione. Raro, soprattutto quando perfettamente completo come il presente esemplare. Cfr. Lozzi 963; Cicognara (1947) il quale cita l'ed. del 1616: "Opera utile per le memorie patrie e per molte nozioni antiquarie."; Piantanida (720): "Seconda edizione assai bella. Opera indispensabile per gli studiosi di storia ed archeologia bresciana, importante per le numerose riproduzioni di statue, monumenti, emblemi, simboli, monete e iscrizioni lapidarie.".

        Den geestelicken palm-boom in elke maent nieuwe vruchten gevende; oft generale legende van de levens der heyligen, saligen, dienaers ende dienaressen Godts, uyt de dry-vuldige orden vanden H. en seraphinischen vader Franciscus, bestaende in twaelf boecken.

      Ghendt, Ian Dankaerts a.o., 1693.. 12 volumes 4to (20 x 16 cm). 19th century full calf, covers blindstamped, backs gilt (faded). Hinges with small tears, corners sl. bumped, 2 backs cracked, some repairs to bindings, but strong bindings and firm bookblocks apart from the first quire of the first volume, which is loosening. Inner state: of vol. 1 frontispiece cut off till the plate and pasted on, title seriously damaged and repaired with white paper; of vol. 5 frontispiece cut short and pasted on verso title; of vol. 6 title cut out around the text and pasted on verso frontispiece; serious repairs to these 2 titles with white paper; all the fly-leaves (schutbladen) of the 12 volumes are missing. With 12 frontispieces and 10 (of 12) coats of arms, otherwise a complete set. Text in Dutch. Each volume has a dedication to a different person, accompanied with an engraving (10 of 12) showing his or her coats of arms: Johannes de Bejar, Bernardus Zoetaert, Petrus van der Woestyne, Carolina Theresia de Camargo, etc. - Collation (excluding the plates): vol. 1: (xxviii, 593, (iii) pp (last quires ( "Tafel") waterstained, inner margins repaired), vol. 2: (viii), 761, (i) pp., vol. 3: (xii), 753, (iii) pp., vol. 4: (xii), 747, (v) pp., vol. 5: (x), 767, (v) pp., vol. 6: (xii), 799, (v) pp., vol. 7: (viii), 774, (vi) pp.; vol. 8: (xii), 744, (viii) pp. (inner margin frontisp. and title damaged), vol. 9: (x), 801, (v) pp., vol. 10: (xii), 814, (iv) pp., vol. 11: (xii), 855, (v) pp. (last leaf stained, inner margin repaired), vol. 12: (x), 763, (v) pp. - A complete set is hardly to find, because the volumes were published between 1693 and 1720 by 4 different publishers in this order: Jan Danckaert, Maximilianen Graet, Livinus de Clerck and Franciscus & Dominicus van der Ween..

        [Pestsäule am Graben in Wien]

      Wien und Augsburg, Rat und Köslin, nach 1693. Altkolorierter Kupferstich von Johann Ulrich Kraus nach Lodovico Ottavio Burnacini mit dem Kolorit von Anna Beek, Bildausschnitt (rote Umrandung) 73,5 x 48 cm, Blattgr. 77,5 x 53 cm. Artisti Italiani in Austria, Abb 5.6.7. Seltenes monumentales Blatt der Wiener Pestsäule (Dreifaltigkeitssäule) am Graben mit ausführlicher Widmung an Kaiser Leopold I. Zu Anna Beek siehe Wurzbach, Niederl. Künstler, I,68. - Im Auftrag des niederländischen Statthalters und englischen Königs Wilhelm III von Oranien-Nassau kolorierte und "vergrößerte" Anna Beek (1657-1717) eine Reihe von Ansichten, in dem sie das Originalblatt auseinander schnitt, auf größerem Papier - mit Zwischenraum - montierte und dann mit ihren bekannten, kräftigen (leuchtenden) Farben kolorierte. Sie verwandte Ansichten von Braun-Hogenberg, Janssonius oder Merian, die dann nach der Kolorierung zu einem großen Ansichtenwerk zusammengebunden wurden. Die Qualität des Kolorits ist in etwa vergleichbar mit dem legendären Kolorit des van Santen aus dem Atlas van der Hem. Der Band der österreichischen Ansichten kam geschlossen in den Besitz des ehemaligen Artaria-Mitarbeiters Hans Philipp Gutacker, seine Erben verkauften sie ebenfalls geschlossen an ein Antiquariat im Rheinland. Alle Blätter sind in dieser Art Unikate; 2 fach gefaltet, eine Falz eingerissen, wie alle Blätter von Anna Beek ausgeschnitten und alt montiert
