POPE JOAN]. [LENFANT, Jacques. (1661-1728), Translator]
Chez *****, 1694. 12mo, pp. [40]. 320, 4. Engraved frontispiece. Title-page printed in red and black. Bound in countemporary calf, spine gilt in compartments, a very good clean copy. Scarce, the OCLC locates just three copies (HHG, MNU, PUL, plus 7 more.). This is a translation of De Papa Foemina Inter Leonem IV et Benedictum III. Joan was a mythical female Pope who is usually placed between Leo IV (847-855) and Benedict III (855-858). One account suggests that she was born in England, another in Germany of English parents. After an education in Cologne, she fell in love with a Benedictine monk and fled with him to Athens disguised as a man. On his death, she continued to Rome under the alias of Joannes Anglicus (John of England) and entered the priesthood, eventually becoming a Cardinal and was elected Pope under the title of John VIII and died during childbirth during a papal procession. Spanheim disputes the account of Pope Joan that was published by Blondel in 1647. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

GEDDES, Michael?]
1st.ed., 8vo., (xxiv)+443+(4)pp. imprimatur leaf before title, a crisp and attractive copy in early nineteenth-century half dark green morocco, marbled boards. London, for Sam Smith & Benj. Walford, 1694.Wing H.2148; an attractive copy of a scarce work by Geddes (1650?-1713), a divine who in 1678 went to Lisbon as Chaplain to the English factory returning to England in 1688. The title describes the work as ëDone out of Portugueze into Englishí so the work was almost certainly compiled by Geddes during his years in Lisbon where he had access to the pertinent documents.

Dawson, George [1637 - 1700]
London: Printed for Richard Chiswell, 1694. 1st edition (Lowndes, p. 604; Marvin, p. 257; Wing D-459). [28], 168, T.p. printed in red & black. Printed glosses. "Chap. X" begins new pagination & register, though text continuous. Folio. ^4 a - b^4 c^2 A - X^4; 2^A - 2D^4 2E^2. 32.5 cm x 20.5 cm. Early full brown calf, with a modern respining to style. Dark maroon gilt-lettered leather title label to spine second compartment. Stain to text-block lower corner gradually diminishing, with minor worming, primarily in the stained portion, affecting margins only. Lower outer margins of first few leaves neatly restored. Some other odd soiling, nothing obtrusive. A solid VG copy of an uncommon title. Item #30903 Per the DNB, Dawson "an English jurist, educated at St. John's College, Cambridge, where he graduated B.A. in 1658-9, M.A. in 1662, and was presented by his college to the vicarage of Sunninghill, Berkshire, where he died in 1700, aged 63." This his only known published work. Termed by some as 'ambitious, it have been described as "one of the most interesting, but now completely forgotten, treatises on natural law to be printed in late-seventeenth-century England. Despite its many qualities, the treatise was published, albeit very handsomely by Richard Chiswell, in a very limited edition... and it simply failed to reach the relevant audience", a circumstance which, no doubt, accounts for its scarcity in the modern antiquarian law market.

The eagle is Charles I who "had his head chop'd off by a One-Eye'd Hedg-Bird, upon a block erected by his own Nest, for the Purposes." The Old Hawk is Cromwell who usurped the Eagle's authority "till at last he sickened in a Molting Season, and dyed of the Pip; who was afterwards Hung up, to Scare the blackbirds out of Paddington-Fields."

Johnson, Samuel
London: Printed for the Author. MDCXCIV, 1694. Book. Very Good+. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. This pamphlet matching Wing listing J835 has been reworked with tan pastedowns and endsheets into pale green hardcover boards, with spine labeled in what appears to be black leather with neat gilt lettering. The books boards measure a longish 7 3/4 x 6 1/2", text a trifle under 7 3/4 x 5 7/8, to gutters, collation is quarto. The grade above may be thought of as a compromise between the reworking and the age of the text. Paper very handsome, numbered to 110 pages followed by a page of advertisments for other Johnson writing, verso blank. It commences with an endsheet where the prior owner has penciled the Wing number and placements, this is followed by a 1/2 title page, verso a message from the House Of Commons re the legitimacy of William and Mary. Next is the title page (will try to shoot this for the books listing) verso blank, a one page note to 'Barons and Commons' verso blank, and a 2 page preface, text begins next at page 1. Pagination proceeds correctly thru page 110. The first page (half title) has a tiny penciled note and a notably smudged look. I have not attempted to erase due to fear of leaving a variegated appearance, similarly the last (blank page) has age darkening and the odd mark. Balance of text is really spendid, parchmentlike, slightly wavy, ultra legible. Not without foxing, but very minimally so, margins are a @ 1 inch at fore-edge, 3/8 inch+ at top/bottom. The appearance of the top and bottom edges is uniformly, mildly age darkened, the … [Click Below for Full Description]

SANTOS Francisco
- Por Francisco Antonio de Burgos, en Valencia 1694, Pet. in-8 (10,5x16,3cm)), (32) 317pp. (3), relié. - Nouvelle édition après l'édition originale de 1665. Rare. Reliure en plein Parchemin d'époque. Dos lisse avec titre à la plume. Rousseur éparses. Ecrivain fécond espagnol, Francisco Santos (1618-1696), qui fut militaire de son état, est célèbre pour ses romans et nouvelles picaresques dans lesquels puisa abondamment Lesage pour Gil Blas et son Diable boiteux. Il y défend les pauvres contre les riches, et les humbles contre les nantis, attitude typique du roman picaresque, et reflet de la société madrilène et espagnol. La plupart des oeuvres de Santos sont pleines de morales chrétiennes et catholiques, et cet esprit a abouti à cet ouvrage qui sort du domaine strict de la littérature, où l'auteur se fait le champion de la défense de la doctrine chrétienne et catholique. On y trouve des détails fort intéressants sur les sorcières et les coutumes de Madrid. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] New edition after the first edition of 1665 Rare. Parchment full contemporary. Smooth spine with title pen. Freckles scattered. Spanish prolific writer, Francisco Santos (1618-1696), who was his military state, is famous for his novels and short stories in which picaresque drew plenty Lesage for Gil Blas and his lame Devil.

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 eng … [Click Below for Full Description]

BLOUNT, Sir Thomas Pope
London: Ric Everingham for R. Bently, 1694. 4to, pp. [xii], 129, blank, [2], 248. Bound in contemporary calf (some wear to the foredges), with later rebacking. Front blank loose, hinge tender, little foxing to the title-page, little soiling and small hole to the upper margin of B1, effecting a little of the running title, a very good copy. STC B3347; Jaggard p. 25; Wing B3347; not in CBEL. Blount (1649-1697) was a politician and author who acquired a high reputation for the extent and variety of his learning. He is most renowned for his Censura celebriorum Authorum, sive Tractatus in quo varia...(1690). This was a bibliographical dictionary, a kind of record of the opinions of the greatest writers of all ages on one another. The DNB, in writing about that book notes that of great interest is not just whom Blount quotes, but whom he left out. Those who were slighted included many of the great poets of the day. The present work somewhat makes up for the slight, in that Blount first treats poetry in general and the different kinds of poetry and the relationship between the poetry of different European countries and the languages of each. The second part contains critical notices of sixty-seven poets of various ages and countries. Some of those omitted from the Censura...are included here. This is one of the earliest critical notices of Shakespeare that had appeared in a book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Hinckelmann, Abraham.
Hamburg, 1694. - 4to. (12) pp. Disbound. First printing of this polemical apology against Johann Friedrich Mayer. The Saxon theologian and orientalist Abraham Hinkelmann (1652-95) became deacon of St. Nikolai in Hamburg in 1685; in spite of sharp criticism by his Hamburg adversaries, who attacked him for his sympathy for Spener and Pietism, he was made head pastor of St. Catharine's in 1689. "But when in 1690 and especially in 1693 the well-known Pietist disputes broke out in Hamburg, Hinckelmann and his friends Winckler and Horbius were attacked by the notorious Johann Friedrich Mayer (a former friend from Wittenberg) and his associaties in a way that defies description" (cf. ADB 12, 461). Hinckelmann was also an exegete of Jakob Böhme's; his special contribution to scholarship is his preparation of the first complete printed Arabic Qur'an, also printed in 1694. - Contemp. ms. note regarding the year of printing on t. p.

Early blind-stamped full calf, much later rebacked with a contrasting morocco title-label; corners worn and a little bumped; front hinge starting to crack but still firm; window cut in the pastedown of the replacement front endpaper to display an early armorial bookplate (of George Wrighte at Gothurst); small nick to the leading edge of the half-title and title leaf (and the two preceding binder's blanks); overall a very good copy. An ink inscription on the half-title states 'By Dr Robinson, B[isho]p of Bristoll' (in 1710). John Robinson (1650-1723) was also Bishop of London from 1714 to 1723; prior to that, he was 'chaplain (c.1680) to English embassy at Swedish court, where he remained more than twenty-five years' (Concise DNB).

London: printed by Thomas James for Edward Brewster,, 1694. Newly corrected and purged, from all grossness in phrase and matter. Augmented and enlarged with sundry excellent moral and expositions upon every several chapter. To which may now be added a Second Part of the said History: As also the Shifts of Reynardine the son of Reynard the Fox, together with his life and death. Quarto (191 × 141 mm.), in 3 parts. Nineteenth-century brown morocco gilt by C. Smith, all edges gilt. Numerous woodcut illustrations, some repeated several times, most with the initials "E.B.", predominantly printed in black letter, with some roman apparatus. Bookplates of Charles W. G. Howard and Lawrence Strangman, clippings from booksellers' catalogues tipped to front free endpaper. Occasional light browning and a few trivial spots, neat marginal repairs to 3 leaves of the third part, early manuscript notes to old fly-leaf, a very good copy. A very scarce English edition of the Reynard fables, the first part of which is sometimes attributed to John Shirley (1680–1702). The Reynard tales were first printed in England by Caxton in 1481 and continued to enjoy enormous popularity in the following centuries. As the 17th century progressed they appeared in increasingly moralized form, though the woodcuts in the present edition retain a pleasingly blunt character, recalling the illustrations of the early woodcut and manuscript era. The Reynard fables were also looked to as sources of political allegory, and the present copy bears an interesting early manuscript discourse, drawn from the Dedicati … [Click Below for Full Description]
