Berkel, Adriaan van
By Johan ten Hoorn, Boekverkooper tegen over het Oude Heeren Logement, inde Historischryver, Tot Amsterdam, 1695. First edition. In modern calf. Engraved frontispiece and two folding engraved plates. Woodcut initials and tailpieces. 4º: [?]4 A-S4; engraved frontispiece and 3 preliminary leaves, [6] 139 [5] p., and [2] folded engraved plates. One of the most important and earliest publications of the Dutch presence in modern Guyana; among the rarest titles on Suriname. Amerikaansche Voyagien is one of the first printed reports on the Dutch Colonies of Berbice and Essequibo and the only existing eyewitness information on Berbice dating from this period. The first part of the book consists of van Berkel's voyage to the Colony of Berbice between 1670 and 1674, the second part is a fictitious journey to Suriname made in the 1680s. Adriaan van Berkel was born in Leiden around 1647. He arrived to Berbice at 1670 as the appointed 'Merchant and Secretary' by the Zeelander owners of the Berbice Colony. Van Berkel stayed in the region for more than three years and during this time he made four journeys to the interior of the eastern part of Guyana and to Essequibo. His travelogue gives a general survey of the geography and nature of Guyana and contributes to the knowledge of the history of the early private and Dutch West India Company's colonies on the Wild Coast. It also deals in great detail with the ethnography of the Amerindian peoples especially the Arawak population and their connection with the Dutch traders and gives factual reports on various events Van Berkel witnessed unti … [Click Below for Full Description]

AVINATRI, Vincenzo. C.O. 1612-1685
Naples: Giacomo (Jacques) Raillard, 1695. Contemporary calf, gilt frames and corner lilies, blind central azured arabesque medallion, spine and lettering gilt. BOUND WITH:  Epitomes Vitae. Naples, G. Raillard 1695. 8vo. Engr. portrait [iv], 125, [3 blank]p. ENGRAVED FRONTISPIECE PORTRAIT (A. Magliar after a G. Trombator painting), fine woodcut title ornament. Ad I-II: A NICE EXAMPLE OF LINKED BOOKS, "two or more bibliographic items gathered within a single binding that are linked by a reference within the items themselves other than on their own title-pages" (Hunter & Nash). Though the books have independent quire signings and paginations and different publication dates, they share a privilege and an errata leaf at the end of the second work bearing the corrections for both works.  The elegant types, attractive woodcut ornaments and skilled presswork of these two volumes are atypical of late 17th-century Neapolitan production. In fact, Jacques Raillard was French and brought his design sensibility and aesthetic standards with him from France. He even shared his device, mottoed Non sempre nuoce, with another countryman printer active in Naples at this time, the controversial Antoine Bulifon. I have located one example of each volume in the U.S. Both volumes are in fine condition.  Ad I: Only Edition of this illustrated Passion of Christ emphasizing the role and suffering of the Virgin Mary. It is Avinatri's only published work.  Ad II: Only Edition of this anonymous biography of him, the chief source for his life. ¶Hunter & Nash, "Composite Books" in The Book C … [Click Below for Full Description]

Versailles) THOMASSIN, Simon.
Amsterdam: Pierre Mortier, 1695. Thomassin was sent by Colbert to study in Rome for four years before returning to France in 1680 and becoming court engraver to Louis XIV. Among his first projects after his return was to draw and publish illustrations of all the sculpture, ancient and modern, used to decorate the palace and gardens at Versailles. The first edition of this work appeared in Paris in 1694. It was quickly reissued, in the edition offered here, by Pierre Mortier in Amsterdam. This Dutch edition includes the same text and plates, but adds a folding engraved plan of the gardens of Versailles and a translation of the text into Latin, Italian and Dutch. The plates depict not only the statuary, but also the fountains, hermae and vases distributed throughout the gardens. A rare second Paris edition with 26 additional plates was published in the same year as the first, but that edition also appeared without the garden plan. Ganay 37; Berlin Cat 4212. Small 4to (19.1 x 13.8 cm); 59 + (1) + (1) + (1) pp. + engraved title, 228 engraved plates, and a folding plan (49.5 x 32.5 cm). Contemporary full calf, rubbed; minor worming in rear joint and back board, not affecting text, but generally a well preserved copy. [Attributes: First Edition]

Armorial bookplate of John Earle of Wigtonn (Wigtown) - John Fleming, the sixth Earl, 1673-1744. Also label of the Carberry Tower Library, Scotland, formerly owned by the Lords of Elphinstone. The French version of Spanheim's Latin answer to David Blondel who had attempted to destroy the Pope Joan 'myth' in two works published in 1647 & 1657. Blondel's fellow Protestants disliked the debunking of a story gratifyingly discreditable to the Catholic Church. The story of a woman reigning as Pope during the Middle Ages first appeared in Chronicles of the thirteenth century. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

CAESAR, Julius
London: In the Savoy, printed by Edward Jones, for Thomas, 1695. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "If you must break the law, do it to seize power: in all other cases observe it!" - Julius Caesar A rare collection of civil war histories and Julius Caesar war commentaries! Julius Caesar's war commentaries are some of the most prolific military writings! While not specifically known for his writing, Julius Caesar wrote this book which would become a mainstay in the Latin literature canon. It focuses on first-hand account of Julius Caesar in the Callic wars, but it was written as though from a third-person view. This rare 1695 English edition was translated by Clement Edmondes, who was held in high regard for his writings on military and art of war. (DNB).

Charleval "had neglected to research the true origins of the terms which he employed" (Jal).Ad 2: Rare first and only edition of a Neo-Latin poem on the properties of monkeys. As in singerie paintings, in which monkeys imitate human behaviour, the monkeys in the poem are in fact a mirror for human behaviour.Charles-François de Charleval (1667-1747) was a French Neo-Latin poet and a member of the Jesuit order.With a stamp and shelf-mark of René Moreux (1876-1957) on the back of the first title-page.

CARTOU, François
Paris: Charles Clouzier, 1695. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Francois Cartou's 'History of Anabaptists' is perhaps the best and most authoritative 17th-century account of reformed Protestantism. This work describes many of the horrors that Anabaptists faced at the hands of the Holy Roman Empire through attempts at rebellion. Public executions and torture scenes were prevalent among Anabaptists, particularly after the Munster Rebellion and the rulership of Bernhard Knipperdolling. Cartou describes this and many other events in this 1695 first edition. [Attributes: First Edition]

EUSEBIUS & THEODORET
Prostat Amstelodami: Henricum Wetstenium, 1695. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Eusebius's 'Church History' is considered the pioneering work on the history of the Church. He details the life of Jesus through Emperor Constantine's military victories (ca. 325 AD). An very rare 17th-century Latin edition of Eusebius's 'History of the Church'. Originally written in Greek, the Latin edition here is of Henry Valesius (Valois). Valesius was a fine editor of Greek literary works including Polybius, Socrates, and Theodoretus of Cyrus. Theodoret of Cyrus was a 5th-century early Christian Church bishop. He played a critical role in many Byzantine controversies which led to various ecumenical acts and schisms. Theodoret's 'Ecclesiastical History' deals with the rise of Arianism (mid-3rd-century AD) through the mid-5th-century. In this work, Theodoret expounds on major Arian controversies, church councils, and synods. It varied in style from other early church father's histories in that it was much more concise, only using brief commentaries. This impressive three-volume folio set includes Valois's Latin translations of both Eusebius and Theodoret, published in 1695 by Henry Wetstein. An impressive set!

London, Awnsham & John Churchil, 1695. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. [xx], 296, [iv] - being the prefact, text and index. A somewhat important work in Arthurian literature, and in speculative fiction in general. Whilst it was written in support of William of Orange, it still serves to help maintain the most famous of English myths. So however tedious the text is (I got through a couple of dozen pages), it is an important work and deserves to have its place retained in the study of the myth. Near fine, early if not contemporary boards - bound in full calf - rebacked somewhat recently with newer endpapers, though still themselves old. Some wear to the spine tips and where the rebacking has been undertaken. A couple of marginal notes. Leaves largely in good shape, tightly bound - a very attractive copy overall.

HOUGHTON, Thomas.
London: Printed for R. Baldwin,, 1695. Radical proposals to fund the war Small quarto (201 x 153 mm). Disbound pamphlet, earlier sew-holes holes in margin. Light soiling to initial and final leaves, a few leaves a little short at foot. A very good copy. First edition. Houghton proposes methods of financing the Nine Years' War, of which his first is most notable: that everyone condemned to death in England be offered a reprieve of their sentence for all crimes save murder, in return for them paying the exchequer full compensation for their crimes, be levied an additional fine, and pay £50 a year thereafter. If they are not able to pay, Houghton proposes they be branded and used as slaves in the government trading companies. Houghton gives lengthy lists of his proposals for the appropriate fine for each crime, graded by rank in society. His proposals would at least have replaced the prevalent death penalty in the English legal system with a more financially remunerative punishment, and his critiques of the death penalty as ineffectual from both an economic point of view but also as failing to deter crime and reform criminals is notable. As he writes, "whereas hanging them is a great loss to the nation... the preservation of their lives this way, will not only raise ready money for the service of the government; but the sending them abroad will, in a few years, increase the power and strength of the English in foreign parts... the owners abroad enriched, themselves preserved, and the nation rid of rogues, which, in time, and change of place, may grow honest; so that it may b … [Click Below for Full Description]

Thomas Shepard
New England: 1695. The cover has been restored securely using most of the existing leather. Pages are aged and have some toning and flaws. I noticed a couple pages with half a thumb size tear and paper loss, not serious but be aware. Please review all the photos. This goes back, way back, when Massachusetts was a colony and Harvard was still young. To fully appreciate this book it is very helpful to look up Thomas Shepard. A minister in both England then New England. Notably Cambridge Massachusetts and an early important minister at Harvard when it was primarily a school to prepare men for the ministry. Shepard died young, age 41 in 1649. From his extensive papers and notes this book of sermons was created by his son and a colleague and originally published in 1660. This 1695 edition is carefully corrected. The first part is 232 pages and the second half of the book is 190 pages and there is a Table at the back. It would be a rich resource to better understand the culture, mind set and Puritan thoughts prior to 1650. And what they were pouring into Harvard men's minds back then. I spotted a copy that seems rather comparable to this presently priced at $1,050. So I'll start somewhat below that amount and invite you to shoot me, that is, shoot me an offer if you think we might strike a deal. At this time I can only offer this exclusively to U.S. buyers and addresses. I am selling this as-is but if you buy it and are very unhappy I will accept a return within ten days of your receiving the book. Meaning by ten days it must be in the mail heading back to me.

HOUGHTON, Thomas.
London: Printed for R. Baldwin, 1695. Small quarto (201 x 153 mm). Disbound pamphlet, earlier sew-holes holes in margin. Light soiling to initial and final leaves, a few leaves a little short at foot. A very good copy. First edition. Houghton proposes methods of financing the Nine Years' War, of which his first is most notable: that everyone condemned to death in England be offered a reprieve of their sentence for all crimes save murder, in return for them paying the exchequer full compensation for their crimes, be levied an additional fine, and pay £50 a year thereafter. If they are not able to pay, Houghton proposes they be branded and used as slaves in the government trading companies. Houghton gives lengthy lists of his proposals for the appropriate fine for each crime, graded by rank in society. His proposals would at least have replaced the prevalent death penalty in the English legal system with a more financially remunerative punishment, and his critiques of the death penalty as ineffectual from both an economic point of view but also as failing to deter crime and reform criminals is notable. As he writes, "whereas hanging them is a great loss to the nation. the preservation of their lives this way, will not only raise ready money for the service of the government; but the sending them abroad will, in a few years, increase the power and strength of the English in foreign parts. the owners abroad enriched, themselves preserved, and the nation rid of rogues, which, in time, and change of place, may grow honest; so that it may be better. than to continue hanging them, … [Click Below for Full Description]

James II, King of England. Parliament
Printed for J. Wickins; and to be sold by the Booksellers of, 1695. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. Octavo. COLLATION: A-B4 C-F8 G-Q4, COMPLETE. [2], 19-176 pp. Attractive half calf antique, marbled boards, red morocco label gilt, compartments gilt with small tools. Very good. ¶ FIRST EDITION of this important collection of Parliamentary debates, providing original and valuable documentation of the constitutional crisis that ensued during the Glorious Revolution of 1688. James II of England (a.k.a. James VII of Scotland), while fleeing to France, dropped the Great Seal of the Realm into the Thames. In Parliament the question was discussed whether he had forfeited the throne or had abdicated. The present volume offers detailed arguments for the both, but ultimately the latter designation was agreed upon, and in a full assembly of the Lords and Commons, it was resolved in spite of James's protest "that King James II having endeavored to subvert the constitution of the kingdom, by breaking the original contract between king and people, and, by the advice of Jesuits and other wicked persons, having violated the fundamental laws, and having withdrawn himself out of this kingdom, has abdicated the government, and that the throne is thereby vacant." The Scottish parliament pronounced a decree of forfeiture and deposition. ¶ In our copy the imprint reads "and to be sold" (in another issue the imprint reads "and sold"). ¶ References: Wing (2nd ed.)

EUSEBIUS & THEODORET
Prostat Amstelodami: Henricum Wetstenium, 1695. 1695 HUGE FOLIOS Early Church History Eusebius Caesarea & Theodoret Cyrus ValoisEusebius's 'Church History' is considered the pioneering work on the history of the Church. He details the life of Jesus through Emperor Constantine's military victories (ca. 325 AD).An very rare 17th-century Latin edition of Eusebius's 'History of the Church'. Originally written in Greek, the Latin edition here is of Henry Valesius (Valois). Valesius was a fine editor of Greek literary works including Polybius, Socrates, and Theodoretus of Cyrus.Theodoret of Cyrus was a 5th-century early Christian Church bishop. He played a critical role in many Byzantine controversies which led to various ecumenical acts and schisms. Theodoret's 'Ecclesiastical History' deals with the rise of Arianism (mid-3rd-century AD) through the mid-5th-century. In this work, Theodoret expounds on major Arian controversies, church councils, and synods. It varied in style from other early church father's histories in that it was much more concise, only using brief commentaries.This impressive three-volume folio set includes Valois's Latin translations of both Eusebius and Theodoret, published in 1695 by Henry Wetstein.
