Leonard, Frederic [ed]
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. A very good 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 that are important 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 treaties for which the Leonard set provides the first or first French printing between 1556 and 1684, as follows: 1) Davenport 20. Treaty between France and Spain, 1556, by which the French agreed to stay out of Spanish America and the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Swammerdam, J.
Ultrajecti [Utrecht], Ottho de Vries, 1693. 4to (19.3 x 15.6 cm). Half-title, title in red and black with woodcut vignette, 212 pp., [xvii]; 13 (mostly) folded engraved plates, one folded table. Contemporary half vellum over marbled boards, spine with gilt title on morocco label, gilt name embossed on front board. This is the third (second Latin) edition of a work of great scientific merit. Swammerdam laid the foundation of modern insect-classification, which still rests to a great extent upon their evolutionary history. He also proved wrong almost everything then believed about insects, especially spontaneous generation, and the whole ontogenesis, which he demonstrated in very detailed drawings. The live history from egg to adult is shown on several plates. Apart from various insects, the ontogeny of a frog is also included. Swammerdam's works are renowned for their depiction of even the most complicated details in the minute creatures (and their even smaller parts) that he investigated. Although Swammerdam died at a young age, he is considered in some circles to be one of the very important Dutch scientists of the 17th century. The original edition of the present work appeared in Dutch in 1669. With a bookplate pasted on the front pastedown and some browning in the text and on the plates. "H. Laspeyres" is printed in gilt on the marbled front board. This is probably the German entomologist Jakob Heinrich Laspeyres (1769-1809). Cat.

He used advanced Dutch printing methods to produce high quality editions of contemporary French maps by cartographers such as De L'Isle, Sanson, Jaillot, de Fer and De Wit. His greatest feat was the nautical atlas "Le Neptune Francois" or "Suite de Neptune Francois", considered to contain the most beautiful examples of cartographic art. This chart is a beautiful example of one of those charts.

MORTIER, Pierre (1661-1711)
Paris [but Amsterdam: Mortier], 1693. Engraved with full, period colour. 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 Françoisby 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 n … [Click Below for Full Description]

Coronelli, Vincenzo (1650-1718)
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 larg … [Click Below for Full Description]
