        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.

        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.

        A Journal or Historical Account of the Life, Travels, Sufferings, Christian Experiences and Labour of Love in the Work of the Ministry, of that Ancient, Eminent and Faithful Servant of Jesus Christ, George Fox; Who departed this Life in great Peace with the Lords, the 13th of the 11th Month, 1690. 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.

        Arlequiniana ou les bons mots les histoires plaisantes & agréables EDITION ORIGINALE

      à Paris: chez Florenti et Pierre Delaulne., 1694. Fine. chez Florenti et Pierre Delaulne., à Paris 1694, pet. in 12 (8,5x13,8cm), (58) 354 pp (12)., relié. - First Edition? A similar edition was published on the same date by the same publisher, but in a slightly larger format, with a different snack, a flagship of different title and without title page red and black. This edition may be a counterfeit. A frontispiece representing Harlequin. Uncommon. Vellum half later. Smooth spine with respect to the red pen. Arlequiniana, which remains a literary curiosity, belongs to a prominent genre of French literature, born in the late seventeenth and flourishing in the first half of the eighteenth it comes to these collections of jokes or stories pleasant or Ana which can be entered with the birth in 1693 Menagiana This kind has the distinction of staging his own author and dialogue with the reader, it seems to have no other purpose than to entertain as it seeks to educate because in this age of censorship, literature created this seemingly light but satirical critique of society and manners mode. Charles Cotolondi wrote several books in this field, including Evremonmania. Harlequin, thanks to the famous theater of the Fair in Paris became very famous and was a kind, and it is deliberately Cotolondi actually a kind of wise fool, like a Scapin for Molière. The set is a series of conversations that combines stories and jokes. A table of strong caustic materials retrieves all subjects, death, Cardinal Mazarin, caution husbands or Mr. Lully. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale ? Une édition semblable est parue à la même date chez le même éditeur, mais dans un format un peu plus grand, avec une collation différente, un fleuron de titre différent et sans la page de titre rouge et noire. Cette édition est peut-être une contrefaçon. Un frontispice représentant Arlequin. Peu courant. Reliure en demi vélin postérieur. Dos lisse avec titre à la plume rouge. Arlequiniana, qui reste une curiosité littéraire, appartient à un genre prédominant de la littérature française, naissant à la fin du XVIIe et s'épanouissant dans la première moitié du XVIII, il s'agit de ces recueils de bons mots ou histoires plaisantes ou Ana dont on peut saisir la naissance avec le Menagiana en 1693. Ce genre a la particularité de mettre en scène son propre auteur et à dialoguer avec son lecteur, il semble n'avoir d'autre but que de divertir alors qu'il cherche à éduquer, car dans ce siècle de censure, la littérature créa ce mode apparemment léger mais satirique et critique de la société et des mœurs. Charles Cotolondi écrivit plusieurs ouvrages dans ce domaine, notamment le Evremonmania. Arlequin, grâce au fameux théâtre de la Foire à Paris était devenu très célèbre et représentait un type, et c'est à dessein que Cotolondi en fait une espèce de fou sage, à la manière d'un Scapin pour Molière. L'ensemble est une suite de conversations, où se mêlent les contes et les bons mots. Une table des matières fort caustique permet de retrouver tous les sujets traités, la mort, le cardinal Mazarin, la prudence des maris ou M. Lully.

        Schat-Boeck der Verclaringen den Nederlandschen Catechismus

      Amsterdam: C. Lootsman, 1694. Thick quarto, engraved title-page, water-stain affecting several leaves of text; very good in contemporary panelled dark calf with clasps, gilt VOC-M device at centre of front cover. A very rare example of a devotional book bound for use aboard a ship of the Dutch East India Company, or VOC, in the late seventeenth century. The 'M' in the device represents the Middelburg chamber of the company, and the book would have been used aboard one of their ships.Zacharias Ursinus (1534-1583) was a German Reformed theologian and long-time student at Wittenberg and Heidelberg. His Schatboek, of which this is a good example, was one of the most popular works of its kind, particularly in the Netherlands.John Landwehr gives a long account of the VOC's involvement with books and printing over a long period of time for a number of purposes - ranging from seafaring practical to religious - and as he notes "the chamber had its own arrangements... also with a bookbinder. The chamber provisioned its outbound ships... [and] also exported books to the East Indies, occasionally upon request of the VOC library in Batavia... and frequently to the overseas churches. All of these books were given bindings bearing the VOC-A monogram... The Zeeland chamber played second fiddle. It exported one book to every three of the Amsterdam chamber... However, books for the ship's chest and for chaplains must have been provisioned chiefly by the Amsterdam chamber because very few VOC-M bindings have turned up. And those which have turned up have almost all been copies of Ursinus' Schatboek. It is noteworthy that the letter M for Middelburg is used instead of Z for Zeeland. Normally the M is placed under the monogram...".Landwehr illustrates a number of VOC bindings, one of which (p. xxix, top right) is of the same design as ours although it is on vellum rather than calf: see VOC. A Bibliography... (Utrecht, 1993), pp. xxvii-xxx and passim.

[30], 1-403, [1], 1-92, 97-263, [1] pp. (Complete). 1 vols. Folio. The Cartesian World, Illustrated. First edition of an important Cartesian work, magnificently illustrated with full-page plates by Kep and van der Fucht. "Antoine Le Grand's most substantial work, An Entire Body of Philosophy According to the Principles Of the Famous Renate des Cartes (1694), is a Cartesian tract from beginning to end. It is based on a Latin text that underwent four editions before being translated into English by Richard Blome, and it includes corrections, alterations and additions by Le Grand himself. This work, as the title reveals, consists of three books. The first book, The Institution, is intended as a treatment of the general nature of things according to Descartes's principles; book two, The History of Nature, illustrates, by means of a great variety of reported experiments and examples, the operation of these first principles in nature. In this book, Le Grand applied the general Cartesian principles to his study of particular bodies and their qualities, showing how such principles can explain all natural phenomena. His extensive discussion includes bodies as various as the loadstone, plants, and insects. And finally, in his third book, A Dissertation of the Want of Sense and Knowledge in Brute Animals, he argued against the supposed link of life and sense from Plato onwards, and after offering a brief survey of various hypotheses on the nature of soul by Aristotle, Gassendi, Fabri, and Descartes, he adopted Descartes's view. In the Preface, Le Grand wrote that, ' ... this whole work contains nothing else, but his [Descartes's] opinions, or what may clearly and distinctly be deduced from them.'"

This 1705 reissue seems to combine the two sequences, while retaining only one engraved title page (which reads: Image de divers hommes d'esprit. Anvers Mis en lumier par Iean Meyssens, 1649). The English engraved title calls for only 123 portraits. The final supernumerary plate is not strictly a portrait, but a personification of Rome. ESTC attributes the text to Sebastiano Resta (1635?-1714). The engravers include T. Gallaeus and J. Mijtens.

        Belgii Novi, Angliae Novae, et Partis Virginiae Novissima Delineatio.

      Amsterdam: Amsterdam:Pieter Schenk and Gerald Valk, [after 1694]. - Single sheet (21 x 24 2/8 inches). Exceptionally fine double-page engraved map of New England, including Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Maine, New York, New Jersey, Maryland and part of Virginiawith magnificent hand-colour, the scale, dedication and title each within elaborate rococo cartouches along the bottom edge, the land decorated with images of native American villages and wild animals, the ocean with war canoe (old vertical fold a little browned in the crease, remains of guard on verso). The third state, with the Valk and Schenk imprint, with the added dedication to Gualthero de Raet with his coat of arms and the imprint of Valk and Schenk, first published by Jansson in 1650, and one of the fundamental prototype maps of New England, the then most important part of colonial America, of the 17th-century. Initially compiled from numerous manuscript and printed sources, the map follows the general outline of Adriaen Block's chart of 1614 with the St. Lawrence River and Lake Champlain based on Champlain. Many European settlements are depicted with several English settlements appearing for the first time. Jansson's primary concern was "to produce a detailed and informative map of the Dutch province of New Netherland and the surrounding region. The result is a valuable historical source and as evocative a picture as any we have of North America between Jamestown and Quebec. Besides these two towns, the settlements on the Delawre (Zuydt), Hudson and Connecticut Rivers, those in the vicinity of Manhattan and Long Island and those along the Massachsetts coast; besides the imperfectly mapped coastline and the conjectured course of rivers lay an almost unknown continent. Indians surrounded them and from the numerous native names on the map one can almost feel the pressure keeping the settlers back. "At the time this map was made the Swedish control of the Delaware River was passing to the Dutch. In 1638 a Swedish expedition had come out, established the province of New Sweden and built Fort Christina in honour of their queen. The names shown along the Delaware River on all the maps in this series refer to the forts and settlements that were set up by the numerous expeditions that followed. Often the settlers were farmers but many of them were pressed men, offered this as an alternative to prison" (Campbell "The Jansson-Visscher Maps of New England" in Tooley's "The Mapping of America", page 279). As the colonisation of New England progressed new issues of the map were published, "many of the more important events are reflected on the maps and may themselves have provided stimulus for re-publication. The capture of Fort Kasimier by the Dutch in 1655 caused the city of Amserdam to found the colony of New Amstel under its protecting walls and it seems likely that four separate copies of the prototype map were made in response to the sudden interest in the region. The English capture of New York in 1664, followed by the surrender of New Netherland and the Dutch settlements on the Delaware River are recorded in the English maps in the series, Speed and Seller, and the Ogilby-Montanus" (Campbell, page 280). The creation of New Jersey and Philadelphia are all reflected in later issues of the map. Burden #305; Fite & Freeman pp. 146-8; Tooley (Amer) p. 284, plate #146.

        REFLECTIONS UPON ANCIENT AND MODERN LEARNING. By William Wotton, B.D. Chaplain to the Right Honourable the Earl of Nottingham

      London: Printed by J. Leake, for Peter Buck 1st edition, 1694. Hardcover. Good. Lord Chancellor Eldon's copy. Octavo panelled leather with corner stylized florettes (spine repaired with old leather laid on, leather loss to one florette, tips worn). Titlepage +[30]pp prelims +359pp. Front free endpaper inscribed "J. Scott e Coll: Univ. Oxon" with his later circular bookplate as Lord Chancellor & Earl of Eldon (1751-1838). Endpapers and first and last two leaves foxed. Some small worm holes to margins but nowhere near text. Printed shoulder and marginal notes and one page with underlining and Scott's MS marginal notes on Descartes. Otherwise a clean crisp copy of an interesting study of poetry, art, but mainly maths, science including alchemy and a chapter on the circulation of the blood taken from Greek and Latin authors and Egyptian, Arabian and Chinese. *The future Lord Chancellor was at University College from 1766 to the early 1770's but on his elopement and marriage he had to give up his Oxford fellowship and studied law. His successful rise through the legal ranks led to his appointment as Lord Chancellor in 1801 a post which he held far too long, more than 20 years.
