        Accurata Utopiae Tabula, das ist der neu entdeckten schalck welt odor des so osse benanten, und doch nic erkanten Schlarraffenlandes New erfundene lacherliche Land tabell.

      - Copper engraving by Johan Baptist Homann, with contemporary hand colouring. A rare map of the land of plenty, fools paradise or Pays de Cocaigne. originally published in 1694. The map was printed three times, in 1694, around 1730 and around 1740. This is probably from the last edition, around 1740. Schlaraffenland was the Utopia of German legend. In the children’s version of this, sausages grow on trees and tables set themselves. This cartographic version is a much darker version, with a "Kingdom of Extravagence", and "Empire of Fat Stomachs", "Tobacco Island" and the "Land of Gluttony". All of this is surrounded by the seas of Drunkeness and Lust. The cartouche has a scene of debauchery and carnal excess. The map is in good, clean and tidy condition. The colouring is typical of the German style of colouring. The shading is quite pale / in pastel tones, and I suspect it may have faded over time. The bottom edge of the map has been trimmed quite closely to the engraving (but there is no loss). The rear of the map shows some sign of support / restoration, but on the whole, the map is in good clean condition, with a clear impression.

      Venice: 1694. - Giovanni Tommaso Minadoi (1549-1615) was an Italian physician and historian who studied at the University of Padua. He practiced in Rovigo and Venice. In 1578 Teodoro Balbi, the newly elected Consul in Syria, offered him the opportunity to travel with him to Aleppo as his personal physician. In Syria he gathered materials to write his account of the war between Sultan Murad III and Mohammad Hodabanda the Blind. He returned to Venice in 1583, but went back to Syria in 1584, remaining there for two years, during which he also spent time in Constantinople. He married Lucia Cezza di Bartolomeo in 1587, a member of one of the richest families in Rovigo. He was a colleague of Galileo Galilei, who described him as jovial, pleasant and honest. (See Viquipdia, the Catalan-language version of Wikipedia). This history is well regarded as a first hand account of the war against Persia between 1578 and 1590. Although Turkey made and retained conquests in Georgia and Azerbaijan, her own historians have criticized her for weakening not only Turkey but also Persia and Daghestan, which facilitated Russia's future expansion at their expense. The engraved map is prized for being especially detailed and accurate. All early editions are scarce. Small quarto. [32], 383, [1], [24, index] pp Double-page engraved map of Asia Minor and the Near East, extending to Persia and Afghanistan. Contemporary limp vellum with yapp edges, soiled and discolored.

        America Septentrionalis

      Amsterdam: Valk and Schenk, 1694. Copper-engraved map, full period hand-colouring. Rare issue of Hondius' important map of North America, here with full period hand colouring. "Henricus Hondius' beautifully engraved map of North America had greater influence than any other to date in perpetuating the theory of California as an island ... Cartographically, this map is a careful composition of many different sources and illustrates well the current state of knowledge" (Burden). Henricus Hondius was the son of the engraver and mapmaker Jodocus Hondius. Henricus continued the family's cartographical business in partnership with Jan Jansson, his brother-in-law. Mapmaking was more often than not a family enterprise in Amsterdam and in Paris in the 17th century. The firm was active under one family member or another for nearly the entire 17th century. This was the period of Dutch supremacy at sea, when, having supplanted the Portuguese in India, central Africa and northeastern Brazil, the Dutch were the prime carriers of spices, silks, furs, tobacco, sugar and slaves. It was not in the nature of things that this predominance could last very long, if only because the Netherlands is a very small country. But until the Anglo-Dutch Wars of the 1660s and 70s, the Dutch were supreme, and the making of maps was a form of nationalistic journalism. First issued in 1636, the map appeared unchanged in various editions of the Hondius/Jansson atlas throughout much of the century. In 1694, "Petrus Schenk acquired all of the Atlas Major plates at public auction ... and began issuing the map with his own imprint. This last state is uncommon" (Burden). Beyond the change in imprint, this last issue is notable for the addition of hachured lines dividing the claims of France, Spain and England and with the hand-colouring reflecting those boundaries, which were quite changed from the preceding issues. This copy with glorious full contemporary hand colouring.

He discusses and extensively illustrates the Tuscan, Doric, Ionic, Composite (here called Roman) and Corinthian orders of column, along with doorways, arches, facades, etc., using them.

The book gives thorough review of the most famous earlier authors on perspective, including the founder of the genre Hans Vredeman de Vries. "The book provides a series of neatly conceived demonstrations of perspective in its abstract and applied forms and gives an original if brief analysis of the upwards convergence of tall verticals to a 'contre-poinct' when viewed with a plane tilted slightly toward the spectator" (Kemp, p. 112). The Bosboom lacks 1 text leaf, but both works are otherwise in good condition, with some mostly marginal stains and some marginal restorations. The binding has been rebacked, with the original backstrip laid down. Two 17th-century classics on architecture and perspective..

Referenced by: Wing F2064; Westwood & Satchell, p.100-101. * "Richard Franck (1624?-1708) was a captain in the parliamentary army and author. Franck was born and educated at Cambridge. Franck left England for a tour in Scotland around 1656 or 1657. He returned to Nottingham, where he seems to have lived for many years. About 1690 he went to New England, where his second book was written, and in 1694 was in London at the Barbican. The book Northern Memoirs for which Franck is known is a specimen of euphuistic literature, and includes the quote: "Art imitates Nature, and Necessity is the Mother of Invention." After much front matter, it is in the form of a dialogue between Theophanes, Agrippa (a servant), Aquila (a friend), and himself, under the name Arnoldus. 'Northern Memoirs' was written in 1658, put together in 1685, but not published until 1694. Its main interest centres in the places which Franck visited in Scotland, and the account of them which he gives. His route was by Carlisle and Dumfries to Glasgow; thence to Stirling, Perth, Forfar, and Loch Ness; then Sutherlandshireand Caithness, Cromarty, Aberdeen, Dundee, St. Andrews, Edinburgh, and Berwick. He made his way home by Morpeth. Franck was the first to describe salmon fishing in Scotland, and both in that and trout-fishing with artificial fly he was a practical angler. He had read the Compleat Angler; he tells us that he had argued with Isaak Walton about pickerel weed breeding pike. He is the first angler to name the burbot, and commends the salmon of the River Thames. Franck's second book was 'A Philosophical Treatise of the Original and Production of Things. Writ in America in a time of solitude,' London, 1687. The running head title of the work is 'Rabbi Moses.' It is written in the same high-flown language as Northern Memoirs. Franck may also have written 'The Admirable and Indefatigable Adventures of the Nine Pious Pilgrims ... to the New Jerusalem. Written in America in a time of Solitude and Divine Contemplation. By a Zealous Lover of Truth . . .' London (Morphew), 1708. The introductory matter is signed 'Philanthropes' as in Franck's other books." - See Wikipedia . ** The full title reads: 'Northern Memoirs, calculated for the Meridian of Scotland. Wherein most or all of the Cities, Citadels, Sea-ports, Castles, Forts, Fortresses, Rivers, and Rivulets are compendiously described. Together with choice Collections of various Discoveries, Remarkable Observations, Theological Notions, Political Axioms, National Intrigues, Polemick Inferences, Contemplations, Speculations, and several curious and industrious Inspections, lineally drawn from. Antiquaries and other noted and intelligible Persons of Honour and Eminency. To which is added the Contemplative and Practical Angler by way of Diversion,' with more of the same character. 'By Richard Franck, Philanthropus. Plures necat Gula quam Gladius, 1694.' .

        AN ACT DECLARING THE RIGHTS AND LIBERTIES OF THE SUBJECT, AND SETTLING THE SUCCESSION OF THE CROWN. [Contained in:] [BOUND VOLUMES OF 106 PARLIAMENTARY ACTS]

      London, 1694. Folio. Contemporary paneled calf. Slight wear to corners and hinges. Scattered light toning and soiling. Contemporary notations to some Acts. With the bookplate of Charles Bill. A handsome set. A set of three volumes containing 106 Parliamentary Acts, covering the early portion of the reign of William and Mary, including the first printing of the English Bill of Rights, passed by Parliament in December 1689. The English Bill of Rights was the culmination of the coup d'état known as the Glorious Revolution, in which James II was deposed and William of Orange and his wife Mary (daughter of James II) were brought in to replace him. James II, a Catholic monarch, fathered a legitimate son in 1688, creating the possibility of a Catholic succession in Protestant England. James II had already ruffled quite a few feathers by trying to reestablish Catholicism, displacing Anglicanism as the only official church in England; he was also considered to be too pro- French and was highly autocratic. The leading Whig noblemen, joined by a few key members of the Tory party, called on William of Orange to lead an army from the Netherlands to claim the throne. James II fled England in December 1688, leaving the Protestant William and Mary to rule the kingdom jointly. The new monarchs came to power accepting the principle of a constitutional monarchy, a fundamental evolution in English government that greatly decreased the power of the throne and opened the door for the modern parliamentary system. A wave of legislation formally embodied the principles of the so called "Glorious Revolution" of 1688. Foremost among this legislation was the English Bill of Rights, actually entitled an "Act Declaring the Rights and Liberties of the Subject...." It provides for several immutable political and civil rights, including the freedom from unilateral royal interference with the law, including the imposition of new taxes; freedom to petition the monarch; freedom of election of Parliamentary members, and freedom for those members to speak out freely and without reprisals while in Parliament; freedom for Protestants to bear arms; and freedom from a standing army in times of peace, requiring Parliament's consent to convene the army. It also specifically overturns several of the Acts passed by James II as unlawful and unjust. Not only did the English Bill of Rights add to the rights set forth in the Magna Charta, it also established very clearly the order of succession to the reign of William and Mary. The throne would go to any of Mary's heirs or issue, thence to her sister Anne of Denmark, and finally to any of William's heirs by later marriages. It also specifically barred a Catholic from the throne, stating: "Whereas it hath been found by experience, that it is inconsistent with the safety and welfare of this Protestant kingdom, to be governed by a Popish Prince, or by any King or Queen marrying a Papist...it may be enacted that all and every person and persons that is, are, or shall be reconciled to, or shall hold communion with the See or Church of Rome, or shall profess the Popish religion, or shall marry a Papist, shall be excluded, and be for ever uncapable to inherit, possess, or enjoy the Crown and government of this realm...." The monarch was also now required to swear an oath to uphold the Protestant religion. The enactment of this new set of laws was the beginning of modern-day British Parliamentary government, moving power out of the hands of the monarch and into that of Parliament and a ministerial system. The English Bill of Rights also served as a model for the founding documents of both the United States and Canada. Some of the other Acts in the sammelband which lead up to the passing of the Bill of Rights are of particular note, and also key pieces of legislation in establishing the new relationship of the Crown, the Parliament, and the people: "An Act for the Abrogating of the Oaths of Supremacy and Allegiance, and Appointing Other Oaths." April 4, 1689. This Act negates legal loyalties to the previous sovereign, swearing fealty to the current rulers, William and Mary, and also swearing to "abhor, detest, and abjure as impious and heretical" the position that persons excommunicated or otherwise condemned by the Pope may be murdered by their subjects with impunity. "An Act for Establishing the Coronation Oath." April 9, 1689. A new coronation oath was needed in order to remove the absolute power from the hands of the monarchy. Under the new oath, the monarch swears "to govern the people of this kingdom of England, and the dominions thereto belonging, according to the statutes in Parliament agreed on, and the laws and customs of the same." Under this new oath, the monarchy was answerable to and bound by the laws passed by Parliament, rather than having free license to act on any tyrannical whim which may occur. "An Act for the Better Securing the Government by Disarming Papists and Reputed Papists." May 11, 1689. An Act mandating the disarming of anyone subscribing to the Roman Catholic faith, removing from their possession "any Arms, Weapons, Gunpowder or Ammunition." The other Acts present here cover a wide range of subjects. Some repeal previous Acts passed by James II, while others govern trade or the military. Others deal with the complete cessation of trade with France and impending conflict with that nation. At least half a dozen acts deal with the taxation on wine, beer, or spirits, and some with the taxation of tobacco. Overall, an illustrious collection of English laws, including the foundational document of British and American government.

        A TRUE ACCOUNT OF THE PROCEEDINGS, SENCE AND ADVICE OF THE PEOPLE CALLED QUAKERS. AT THE YEARLY MEETINGS OF FAITHFUL FRIENDS AND BRETHREN BEGUN IN LONDON ON THE 28th OF THE 3d MONTH, 1694, AND HELD BY ADJOURNMENT UNTO THE 11th OF THE MONTH FOLLOWING, IN ORDER TO PUT AN END TO THE DIVISIONS AND DIFFERENCES AMONG SOME OF THE PEOPLE CALLED QUAKERS IN AMERICA

      London, 1694. Small quarto. Early 20th-century three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt. Extremities lightly rubbed. Minor soiling and wear to text. Very good. A major rarity of 17th-century Philadelphia and New Jersey, this pamphlet relates details of the schism amongst the Quakers caused by George Keith. Keith (1639?- 1716) was an early and important convert to Quakerism, but then began an attempt to reform Quaker theology in the early 1690s during an extended sojourn in America. This sparked a famous controversy in Philadelphia, which fueled some of the earliest productions of the press in Philadelphia and New York, and led to the first trial of freedom of the press in America, decades before Zenger. Disowned by the Friends on both sides of the Atlantic, Keith returned to England and entered the Anglican church in 1700, later returning to America as an Anglican missionary. "Whether it was a long-brewing dispute or a short-term conflict is debated, but at the yearly meeting of Quakers in Philadelphia in 1691 a row occurred that caused much acrimony between Keith and his Quaker brethren. William Stockdale, one of the early Quaker settlers, accused Keith of heresy, of preaching two Christs because he overemphasized the two separate natures of the Saviour" - DNB. Tensions and events escalated in 1692 and 1693, fueled by Keith's published attacks, printed by Philadelphia's first printer, William Bradford. Keith and Bradford were then tried for sedition, but the case against them collapsed when the evidence - Bradford's set type of an inflammatory broadside - was dropped by a juror. Keith and Bradford then moved to New York, where the former wrote and the latter printed a summation of the whole business, TRUTH ADVANCED IN THE CORRECTION AND MANY GROSS AND HURTFUL ERRORS, the first book published in New York. In the present work, the author condemns the schism as detrimental to the Quaker faith as a whole, and he urges Keith to do everything in his power to smooth things over. The text includes a missive from the Yearly Meeting at Burlington, New Jersey, addressed to "Our Friends and Brethren in Truth, both in Pennsylvania, East and West-Jarsey, and elsewhere, as there may be occasion, to be read in their Monthly and Quarterly Meetings, as they in the Wisdom of God shall see meet." The letter exonerates Keith from charges leveled against him and is signed in type by thirty-nine members of the Meeting. The present work is of the greatest rarity. We can locate copies at the Huntington Library, Library of Congress, New York Public Library (imperfect), and the British and Bodleian libraries in England. This would appear to be the only copy in private hands.

        Plattegrond van Rotterdam.

      1694. "[NL] Grote, zeer gedetailleerde kaart die op naam staat van J. de Vou. In cartouche rechtsboven: ""Rotterdam met al syn gebouwen ... Ao 1694 door Joannes de Vou"". Na de succesvolle plattegrond van Haarlem uit 1688/89 kreeg De Hooghe op 25 september 1690 opdracht van burgemeesteren van Rotterdam voor een Rotterdams equivalent. Het resultaat viel echter tegen, want op 11 januari 1692 schreven burgemeesteren aan De Hooghe niet tevreden te zijn. De kaart was ""met menigvuldig vauten vervult en schijnt meerder naer oude kaerten getrocken, dan naer de ware geschapenheyt van onse stad te gelijken"". Na verbeteringen kwam de kaart in 1694 gereed. De Hooghe kreeg er ruim tweeduizend gulden voor betaald. Uit een advertentie van 1696 blijkt dat De Vou de kaart had getekend en dat De Hooghe haar ""in 't koper"" bracht.De Vou kreeg slechts honderd gulden betaald voor zijn aandeel. Evenals de kaart van Haarlem is er een uitgebreid randwerk (bij ons exemplaar niet aanwezig) dat o.a. bestaat uit een groot panorama op de stad, twaalf stadsgezichten en een groot aantal familiewapens. Gesigneerd r.o.: ""Romanus de Hooghe J.U.D. et Com. R. auctor 1694"". [EN]"."Etching on six sheets of paper, hand coloured, framed (with transportation box), ca. 1100 x 1220 mm (six plates together).

        Fables of Æsop and Other Eminent Mythologists with Morals and Reflections

      London: Printed for R. Sare, B. Took, M. Gillyflower, A. & J. Churchil, J. Hindmarsh, and G. Sawbridge, 1694 Illustrated with two engraved plates, including the frontispiece. Second edition. Bound in full contemporary dark brown calf, with five raised bands to the spine, with a contrasting red title label lettered in gilt to the spine, flower and vine decorations to the spine compartments in gilt, petit-faire composition (small tools stamped to look like one large tool) to the boards in blind. Very good, with some light wear to the extremities, spine rebacked with the original calf laid on, some discreet repairs to the corners, some scratches and minor soiling to the boards, former owner's bookplate to the front pastedown, light toning to the page edges, closed tear to page 111/112, margin slightly trimmed on page 53/54, pencil drawing and a closed tear to the rear free endpaper, some light rippling and a few faint spots to the otherwise clean pages, spine lightly starting inside the rear cover, otherwise tight and intact binding. Overall, a sturdy and presentable copy in a contemporary binding. Fables of Æsop and Other Eminent Mythologists with Morals and Reflections is a collection of Aesop's fables, including many of his best-known tales, such as "A Boy and False Alarms" (The Boy Who Cried Wolf), "A Lion and a Mouse," and "A Hare and a Tortoise." After John Locke suggested the fables' morals be used for instructing children, Roger L'Estrange was commissioned to create this collection, which was first published in 1692. In addition to Aesop's fables, it includes reflections on the morals, the prefatory biographical essay "The Life of Æsop," and fables by Barlandus, Anianus, Abstemius, and Poggius, among other fabulists. Notably, the text is illustrated with a portrait frontispiece of L'Estrange and an engraved illustration of Aesop reading his verse aloud to an audience of animals.. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        Al-Coranus s. lex islamitica Muhammedis, filii Abdallae pseudoprophetae [...].

      Hamburg, Gottfried Schultze & Benjamin Schiller, 1694.. 4to. (88), 560, (10) pp. Latin title printed in red and black; Arabic (woodcut) and Latin half-titles. Preface in Latin, text in vocalized Arabic throughout. Contemp. vellum with faded ms. spine.. The famous "Hamburg Koran": while not actually (as it was long considered) the first printed Qur'an ever, the first accessible printed edition of the Arabic text. Only in 1987 was a unique copy of Paganino de Paganinis's Venetian edition (c. 1538) rediscovered, a work whose press run either was destroyed immediately or was limited to the sole surviving specimen, apparently a proof copy (cf. A. Nuovo, "Il Corano arabo ritrovato", in: Bibliofilia LXXX, IX, 1987). Four years after the present edition, in 1698, Lodovico Marracci produced his own Qur'an, but its two big tomes were anything but easy to consult - hence, the Hamburg Koran remained "the only available and handleable" (Smitskamp) edition until the early 19th century. - Abraham Hinckelmann (1652-95), a Hamburg theologian, studied at Wittenberg and collected many Oriental manuscripts. He compiled a Quranic lexicon in manuscript and planned a Latin translation of the Koran, but this was never realised. - Some browning throughout; occasional pencil and ink notes in the text and extensive notes on flyleaves by previous owners. This the the more common variant with only one woodcut Arabic title. - Provenance: from the library of the German theologian Georg Detharding (1727-1813; cf. ADB V, 79) with his ownership to front flyleaf and lower pastedown; acquired in Berlin in 1813 by the Swedish oriental scholar Petrus Sjöbring (1776-1842) (his ownership on inside of upper cover). - Schnurrer 376.

Folio, 20.5 x 32.2 x 7.9cm. First Edition of George Fox's Journal, London, 1694:

      London, Printed for Thomas Northcott, in George-Yard, in Lombard-Street. MDCXCIV. [1694]. - George Fox(1624-1691) founder of the Society of Friends. "Born in Leicestershire and apprenticed to a shoemaker, he apparently had no formal schooling. In 1643 he parted fromfamily and friends and traveled in search of enlightenment. After long painful struggles he came in 1646 to rely on the `Inner Light of the Living Christ.' He forsook church attendance, dismissed contemporary religious controversies as trivial, and in 1647 began to preach that truth is to be found in God's voice speaking to the soul- -hence, `Friends of Truth' later abbreviated to `Friends.' In 1649 he was jailed for interrupting a Nottingham church service with an impassioned appeal from the Scriptures to the Holy Spirit as the authority and guide. In 1650 at Derby he was imprisoned as a blasphemer, and there a judge nicknamed the `Quakers,' after Fox had exhorted the magistrates to 'tremble at the word of the Lord.' .Fox spent six years in different prisons, sometimes under terrible conditions. He campaigned against the latter and against other social evils. His famous journal was published posthumously in 1694."--Douglas: The New Int'l Dict. of the Christian Church, pp.383- 384. We offer the 1694 First Edition of his Journal, indispensable for the study of his life and the early days of the Quakers. Provenance, the following two inscriptions written on leaf A1 and bottom of p.632. 3rd inscription on leaf A1 only. Leaf A1 of Penn's Preface has the following in old pen: "Matthew [E]stes Book Bou[ght] of Thomas Northcott & George Yard, Lombard Street, London the 9th of 3rd Month 169[5] 24,-6 SIH." "Samuel Pope his Book Bougt of Hannah Estes of Salem(?) the 7th of ye 1c 1727/8 Cost 14£." "Descended Aln____ [missing words] [Po]pe y. 3 in a tight Line unto 1763."
