BENOIST, Elie
Deft: Adrien Beman 1693 - An important work in the history of French Protestantism. The revocation of the Edict of Nantes caused much anti-Protestant feeling and led to exodus from France.

Owner’s bookplate to the inside board of each volume. (Morel de Camennelle - (Marie-Mathieu) former president of the Societe d'Emulation d'Abbeville.

Mather, Cotton:
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; howe … [Click Below for Full Description]

PENN, William
1693. First German edition of Penn's Some Fruits of Solitude, in Reflections and Maxims relating to the conduct of Human Life (1693), and its sequel More Fruits of Solitude (1702). These two collections of numbered aphorisms have been reprinted many times over the centuries. Most recently, J.K. Rowling chose aphorism number 131 from the later collection as one of the two epigraphs (the other is from Aeschylus) to the final book in her Harry Potter series: 'Death is but crossing the world, as friends do the seas'. PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 8vo, xii, [iv], 208 pp., contemporary marbled boards with wear and some loss to spine, later engraved portrait of Penn pasted inside front board, sellotape over closed tears to A3 and A4, spotting and browning, isolated underlining and pencil marginalia, a sound copy of a very scarce book.

[ATLAS - NETHERLANDS].
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.

LOCKE, John
The important second edition, now with a portrait and Locke's name on the title-page, and 31 leaves of new material. One of about 700 copies printed (Nidditch). Yolton 62B. Wing L2740. 'When Thomas Basset was running out of copies of the first edition in February 1693, he signed a contract with Locke to pay him ten shillings per sheet for additional materials for a new printing. These additions included an expansion of Book I, Chap. IV; the chapter on power (2.21) was almost entirely new; a new chapter, 'Of Identity and Diversity', was inserted as 2.27 and a discussion was added to 2.9.8. Other numerous additions were made throughout, sectional summaries added in the margins, and an analytical index supplied. Locke further had an engraving made from his portrait done by his amanuensis Sylvester Brounower, engraved by P. Vanderbanck [which] served also as the frontispiece to the third and fourth editions. Locke also had the corrections and new material printed up separately for his friends to insert in their copies of the first edition' (Yolton). PROVENANCE: John Banson, LL.D., was Clerk and Fellow of Trinity Hall, Cambridge and later (from 1751) Rector of Swanington in Norfolk. The annotations in the copy (presumably by him) cross-reference terms within Locke's Essay and sometimes point outwards to other works including Bacon's Advancement of Learning (1605), John Pearson's Exposition on the Creed (1659), John Wilkins's Of the Principles and Duties of Natural Religion (1675), Samuel Parker's Demonstration of the Divine Authority of the Law of Nature (1681), James Tyrrell's … [Click Below for Full Description]

"That Buel was highly regarded by his contemporaries is suggested by the frequency with which he was represented in anthologies. Krautwurst saw him as the most important Nuremberg musician between Hassler and Johann Staden, and his music, which is little known, will no doubt repay further study."

FOIGNY, Gabriel de.
Paris: Claude Barbin, 1693. Duodecimo, 177 pp., in crushed brown morocco by Sangorski. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

LEIBNIZ, Gottfried Wilhelm,
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 mitzu … [Click Below for Full Description]

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'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'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.

Cosmographus, Philo.
Augsburg, Anton Nepperschmid for Jakob Enderlin, 1693.. Folio (305 x 190 mm). (2), 61, (1) pp. Title page printed in red and black. With 11 (instead of 18?) plates containing 22 copper engravings. Modern boards.. Fascinating, little-received geographical study focusing on the Eastern Mediterranean and Asia Minor, then under Ottoman rule. The anonymous late 17th-century German author hides behind the name of "Philo Cosmographus" and is evidently identical with the "Philo Chronographus" who produced the similarly themed chronographical work, "Arca Temporum", which was often issued together with this, though produced by a different publisher and catalogued separately. The present work features an overview of the geography of the Ottoman Empire, including the Aegean, the Sea of Marmara, and the Black Sea region - the "three seas" to which the title refers. Numerous pages of plates (each page containing two copper engravings) depict maps and views as well as animals (a hyena and sheep, Iraklion and Chania, Nauplia, Koroni, Rhodes, Thessaloniki, Belgrade, Izmir, etc.). - The number of plates, and indeed even the arrangement of engravings on a single page, varies from copy to copy, but this wants 8 plates as compared to the table of plates provided in "Arca Temporum". Occasional inkstains, but well-preserved. - VD 17, 7:688727L; 3:605737C. Weller, Pseud. 439.
