        A NEW GRAD[U]ALLY ENCREASING COMPASS-MAP OF THE COMING IN OF THE CHANNEL, OR THE HEADS; CONTAINING A PART OF THE COAST OF BOULONNOIS; EXTENDING FROM CALLIS TO DANNES, AS ALSO IN ENGLAND, FROM THE SOUTH FORLAND TO RYE WITH THEIR SHALLOWNESSES AND DEPTHS BY N. DE VRIES. (This is an exact transcription of the title in English. The same title is also in Dutch and French)

      G. Van Keulen, Amsterdam. n.d. but c.1695 - Large hand-coloured copper-engraved sea chart, 20.5 x 23.5 inches. Traces of old fold otherwise the condition is very good with attractive colours and quality paper. An attractive and decorative sea chart of the English Channel centred on the Varne sand banks, with the coast of Kent from South Foreland to Rye and the French coast from Calais to just south of Boulogne. Navigational features on the land are marked - churches, castles and lighthouses etc. The sand banks are marked complete with sea depths, safe anchorage etc., rhumb lines and compass rose and an attractive cartouche. A rare chart produced by the successful Van Keulen firm. Their charts are scarce in England as the English were frequently at war with the Dutch during the heyday of their production. JOHANNES VAN KEULEN 1654-1711 - GERARD VAN KEULEN 1678-c.1727 The Dutch produced a remarkable number of enterprising and prolific map and chart makers but not even the Blaeu and Jansson establishments could rival the vigour of the van Keulen family whose business was founded in 1680 and continued under their name until 1823 The firm was founded by Johannes van Keulen who was registered as a bookseller in Amsterdam in 1678. In 1680 he published the first part of his Zee Atlas which, over the years, was expanded to 5 volumes and continued in one form or another until 1734. More ambitious and with a far longer and more complicated life was his book of sea charts, the Zee-Fakkel, published in 1681-82 Although the firm was founded by Johannes van Keulen, he was primarily a publisher; it was his son, Gerard, a talented engraver and mathematician, Hydrographer to the East India Company, who became the mainspring of the business, which not only published charts but also books on every aspect of geography, navigation and nautical matters. The title of the map is in lower case script and for some reason the engraver inverted the 'u' in Gradually so that it reads Gradnally PRINTS/MAPS SEA CHARTS PRINTS/MAPS

(4, frontis, titlepage), (2, dedication), (6, preface to reader), (11, Life of Camden), (5, Mr. Camden?s Preface], (5, A Catalogue of Some Books and Treatises), (2, Antoninus?s Itinerary Through Britain), (1, The General Heads of the Introduction and Counties of England), i-cxcv, 1-696, 699-876, [2, Scotland, Ireland and the British Islands title page; General Heads in Scotland, Ireland, and the Islands] [881-882] 883-1056, 1055-1116 [1, blank] [18, Annals of Ireland], [26, Index], (4, blanks) pp. Contemporary speckled calf, central panel with cat?s paw design surrounded by fillet, stippled and pallet borders in blind; corners of boards show expert repair as do a couple of other areas on the front cover. Joints likewise with expert reinforcement (not surprising given the size of this volume). Backstrip on 6 raised bands mended at foot and crown, designs in each compartment stamped in gilt now faded; red-morocco label lettered in gilt. Bottom edges of boards also with the expectable occasional repair. Fore edge of top cover with a couple of very old bruises. Bookplate of Sir Timothy Waldo on front pastedown; both front and rear show some paste action. *Eee3 torn with loss at extreme lower-right corner nowhere near the text. The map of Gloucestershire shows a little bit of spotting, mostly outside the engraving; the map of Northumberland shows repair at fold; other leaves with some spotting or discoloration but withal nothing but expectable signs of use and age. First Gibson translation. An exceptionally clean, large-paper copy, rarely found in a contemporary binding. Camden?s Britannia, which took nearly ten years to research and compose, was an immensely popular and successful book -- first published in Latin in 1586, ?by 1623 it had been reprinted half-a-dozen times and was already twice its original size. It was reprinted for the last time to date expanded into four enormous folio volumes as late as 1806-1842? (PMM 101). The authors continue that ?if Camden was not the first English historian, topographer and antiquarian, he was certainly the first to relate the three studies... [with] the long tradition of accurate and co-ordinated antiquarian study in Great Britain is almost entirely due to Camden.? In his preface, Gibson writes that ?The maps are all new engrav?d, either according to surveys never before publish?d, or according to such as have been made and printed since Saxton and Speed. And that nothing might be wanting to render to render them as complete and accurate as might be, this whole business was committed to Mr. Robert Morden... who took care to revise them, to see the slips of the Engraver mended, and the corrections duly inserted. Upon the whole we need not scruple to affirm that they are by much the fairest and most correct of any that have appeared.? PMM 101. Chubb 113. ESTC R12882. Wing C359.

        A pattern of a well-constituted and well-governed hospital.

      Richard Baldwin, London 1695 - [Le Jeune de Boulencourt.] A pattern of a well-constituted and well-governed hospital: Or, a brief description of the building, and full relation of the establishment, constitution, discipline, oeconomy and administration of the government of the Royal Hospital of the Invalids, near Paris. Partly translated from a large book printed some years ago in French; and partly extracted out of some other manuscript relations never before published. Translated by James Fraser. 8vo. [12], xix, 170, [10], [4, adverts.]pp. Folding engraved plate. London: Richard Baldwin, 1695. 157 x 99 mm. Sprinkled calf ca. 1695, rebacked. Tears in plate repaired, minor worming in gutter margins of several leaves, but very good. 19th century armorial bookplate. Rare First Edition of this English translation of Le Jeune de Boulencourt’s Déscription générale de l’Hostel royal des Invalides (1683). The original French edition, a magnificent and expensive folio volume, documented the construction and management of the Hôtel des Invalides, the pioneering hospital and retirement home commissioned in 1670 by Louis XIV for the treatment and housing of wounded and indigent veterans. The design of Les Invalides strongly influenced the construction of similar institutional buildings in England, including the Chelsea Hospital (est. 1682), designed by Christopher Wren, and the Royal Naval Hospital at Greenwich (est. 1695), the work of Wren and his pupil John Hawksmoor. It was the founding of the latter hospital that prompted Fraser’s anonymously published English translation of Le Jeune’s Déscription générale, which made the substance of the French work available at a far more reasonable price. Construction of the Royal Naval Hospital began in 1696, so it is more than likely that Fraser’s translation served as a reference for the hospital’s builders. This book is rare, with OCLC noting only four copies in the United States (NY Acad. Med., U. Rochester, Huntington Lib., UCLA). [Attributes: First Edition]

        Commission for Greenwich Hospital

      London, printed by Charles Bill, and the Executrix of Thomas Newcomb, deceas'd, printers to the Kings most Excellent Majesty. [1695 (colophon)]. folio, 26 + (2)pp., including the final blank G2, printed largely in black letter, with a fine and large cut of the arms of King William III and a superbly ornamental initial letter 'W' at head of first leaf of text (A2), the title page simply lettered 'Commission for Greenwich Hospital', this rather soiled and foxed, some minor marginal soiling and defective corners, fairly recently well bound in morocco-backed marbled boards, spine lettered gilt. A good, large, copy. The Commission or Letter Patent,> dated at the end, 'at Westminster, the tenth day of September, in the seventh year of Our Reign', therefore seems to pre-date the Commission> dated 12th March 1695 (i.e. 1696 according to Lady Day dating). Both are recorded presumably by the undiscerning Wing W2312. [bound with], THE NAMES> of the Lords and other the Commissioners for Greenwich Hospital>. London, printed by Charles Bill, and the Executrix of Thomas Newcomb, deceas'd, printers to the Kings most Excellent Majesty. 1695 [colophon]. folio, caption title, 6 + (2)pp., including the blank B2, a good large copy. Wing N139 and ESTC locate copies only at Lambeth Palace Lib. and Bodleian (a later printing, Wing N139aA dated 1699, is known by copies located at BL + Harvard). Two related documents of some rarity. The Commission> or Letter Patent, dated 10th September 1695, is not recorded by ESTC nor OCLC and there is no copy in BL. And we have not found it elsewhere (but see further notes below). Not in Wing. The Names of the Lords> is Wing N139, with the only copy located by Wing and ESTC being at the Bodleian. (A later printing, Wing N139aA dated 1699, is located at BL only). The Commission> of 10th September 1695 revoked the original Commission of 12 March 1694 (i.e. 1695). (Wing W.2312 has it as 12 March 1695 (i.e. 1696) which is surely wrong). Greenwich Royal Hospital was built by Wren, Vanbrugh and Hawksmoor on the site of the old royal palace at Greenwich after a charter had been granted by William and Mary in 1695 to found a hospital for seamen who had been injured or grown old in the service of the crown, as Chelsea Hospital had been instituted for soldiers by Charles II. Christopher Wren designed the hospital and John Evelyn was appointed treasurer. The foundation stone was laid on 30th June 1696, but it was not until 1706 that the first 42 Pensioners took up residence. The 1695 Commission names the Commissioners, these including many of those in high office in both the city of London itself and, more widely, in both church and state. Among them were Sir Josiah Child, Sir Robert Clayton, John Cary, John Evelyn (father and son), John Flamsteed, Sir John Houblon, Dr. Robert Hooke, John Locke, Samuel Pepys, Sir William Trumbull, Sir Christopher Wren, and many others hardly less distinguished. The case for the hospital was based on a mixture of national defence, economic ambition and human philanthropy. 'Whereas we are extreamly desirous that the trade, navigation and naval strength of this our Realm of England ... should by all proper means be promoted and advanced: and whereas we are perswaded that nothing will more effectually contribute thereto, than the endeavouring, by due and fitting encouragements, to encrease the number of English seamen, as well for the strengthening of Our Navy Royal, and better performing the naval services of us, our heirs and successors, as for the supplying and carrying on the occasions and business of our merchants, and other our loving subjects, interested in trade, commerce, fishing, plantation, discovery, and other affairs relating to navigation ... and nothing is more likely to continue this their ancient reputation, and to invite greater numbers of our subjects to betake themselves to the sea, than the making some competent provision, that seamen, who by age, wounds or other accidents, shall become disabled for further service at sea, and shall not be in a condition to maintain themselves comfortably, may not fall under hardships and miseries, but may be supported at the publick charge; and that the children of such disabled seamen, and also the widows and children of such seamen as shall happen to be slain in sea-service, may in some reasonable manner be provided for and educated ...'.

Weinstraße, Mosbach, Würzburg, Limburg, Löwenstein, Stuttgart ///////// SEHR SELTEN //////////// Alexis Hubert Jaillot (1632-1712) followed Nicholas Sanson (1600-1667) and his descendants in ushering in the great age of French Cartography in the late 17th and 18th centuries. After the fire that destroyed the preeminent Blaeu firm in 1672, the publishing center of the cartographic world gradually transitioned from Amsterdam to Paris. It was published in Paris by Jean-Claude Dezauche. Hubert Jaillot who was trained as a sculptor, married the daughter of the owner of a lucrtative map & print publishing enterprise, Nicholas Berey and inherited the business upon his death. When Nicholas Sanson, the premier French cartographer of the day, died, Jaillot negotiated with his heirs to republish much of Sanson's work with little modification to the originals. Jaillot's maps were particularly beautiful with their elaborate and meaningful allegorical cartouches and other decorative elements. In 1686 Jaillot was awarded the title of Geographe du Roi. His most famous works include the "Atlas Nouveau - 1674" and "Atlas Francais - 1695"

It can be seen as a complement to his view of toleration discussed in "De habitu religionis christianae ad vitam civilem", published in 1687. In both these late works Pufendorf examines the best way to secure peaceful co-existence of different confessions in a state. However, reconciliation between Protestants and Catholics is declared to be impossible. A second edition, augmented with an index, was published in 1716

        A pattern of a well-constituted and well-governed hospital

      London: Richard Baldwin, 1695. [Le Jeune de Boulencourt.] A pattern of a well-constituted and well-governed hospital: Or, a brief description of the building, and full relation of the establishment, constitution, discipline, oeconomy and administration of the government of the Royal Hospital of the Invalids, near Paris. Partly translated from a large book printed some years ago in French; and partly extracted out of some other manuscript relations never before published. Translated by James Fraser. 8vo. [12], xix, 170, [10], [4, adverts.]pp. Folding engraved plate. London: Richard Baldwin, 1695. 157 x 99 mm. Sprinkled calf ca. 1695, rebacked. Tears in plate repaired, minor worming in gutter margins of several leaves, but very good. 19th century armorial bookplate. Rare First Edition of this English translation of Le Jeune de Boulencourt?s Déscription générale de l?Hostel royal des Invalides (1683). The original French edition, a magnificent and expensive folio volume, documented the construction and management of the Hôtel des Invalides, the pioneering hospital and retirement home commissioned in 1670 by Louis XIV for the treatment and housing of wounded and indigent veterans. The design of Les Invalides strongly influenced the construction of similar institutional buildings in England, including the Chelsea Hospital (est. 1682), designed by Christopher Wren, and the Royal Naval Hospital at Greenwich (est. 1695), the work of Wren and his pupil John Hawksmoor. It was the founding of the latter hospital that prompted Fraser?s anonymously published English translation of Le Jeune?s Déscription générale, which made the substance of the French work available at a far more reasonable price. Construction of the Royal Naval Hospital began in 1696, so it is more than likely that Fraser?s translation served as a reference for the hospital?s builders. This book is rare, with OCLC noting only four copies in the United States (NY Acad. Med., U. Rochester, Huntington Lib., UCLA).

        RECUEIL DES FIGURES, GROUPES, THERMES, FONTAINES, VASES, STATUES, ET AUTRES ORNEMENS DE VERSAILLES. Tels Qu'ils Se Voyent A Present Dans Le Chateau & Parc. Gravé D'Après Les Originaux.

      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.

Small folio size, 12.5 x 8.75 inches [31 x 22 cm]. Later three-quarter vellum, with red morocco title label on spine, and with red marbled paper hardboards. Covers have moderate rubbing and superficial edge wear. The vellum is impressively clean. The red morocco label reads "Bellori Stanze di Raffael [sic]" and is almost certainly from the original binding of 1695. Two small repaired tears to the title page. Significant foxing to the preliminaries. Hand laid paper. Note that the engraved frontispiece portrait of Raphael by Carlo Maratti is missing. Else very good internally and externally. Present are 4 engraved headpieces, 2 tailpieces and 4 historiated initials, engraved arms of Innocent X, the dedicatee, on title. Divisional title reads: La Favola di Amore, e Psiche Dipinta da Rafaelle, and with a dedication to Francesco Farnese, Duke of Parma and Piacenza (p. 64 on verso) apparently tipped in between signatures H and I. Discusses the artist Raphael (1483-1520). The Vatican City Library has a virtually identical copy. With gratitude to Hugh Pagan for the following description of the text: "First edition of the Roman scholar G.P. Bellori's admirably thorough description of the famous series of paintings by Raphael in the papal apartments in the Vatican Palace. It also provides a full description of Raphael's paintings for the loggia of Psyche in the Villa Farnesina, and an interesting account of the restoration by G .F. Rossi, under the supervision of Carlo Maratta, of Annibale Caracci's cycle of frescoes in the gallery of the Palazzo Farnese. The last eight pages print the speech which Bellori delivered at the annual prize-giving ceremony of the Accademia di San Luca in Rome in 1677, celebrating the esteem in which artists such as Giotto, Gentile Bellini, Titian and Rubens were held by kings or popes."

He lived for some years among the Indians, and, on occasion, acted as parish priest or professor of philosophy. His book, published after his return, caused a great sensation, for it was the first to give the world a description of the vast regions from which all foreigners had been jealously excluded by the Spanish authorities. The work was translated into French, Dutch, and German, but its purpose was to urge the English to seize the Spanish territories in the New World."

      ?Versailles: 1695 - manuscript in ink on paper in a secretarial hand, with one correction in another hand, minor foxing, outer leaves (self-wrappers) a little soiled, ink splash on upper cover, ff. [20, the last blank], 4to, stitched with a single blue silk ribbon making one entry towards the top and tied around, good &#145;The Duc de Beauvilliers, who had been the first to test in his own family the value of [Fénelon&#146;s] "Traité de l'education des filles", was in 1689 named governor of the grandchildren of Louis XIV. He hastened to secure Fénelon as tutor to the eldest of these princes, the Duke of Burgundy. It was a most important post, seeing that the formation of the future King of France lay in his hands; but it was not without great difficulties, owing to the violent, haughty character of the pupil. Fénelon brought to his task a whole-hearted zeal and devotion. Everything . was made to serve in the taming of this impetuous spirit . With the same object in view, he wrote his "Fables" and his "Dialogues des Morts", but especially his "Télémaque", in which work, under the guise of pleasant fiction, he taught the young prince lessons of self-control, and all the duties required by his exalted position. The results of this training were wonderful. The historian Saint-Simon, as a rule hostile to Fénelon, says: "De cet abîme sortit un prince, affable, doux, modéré, humain, patient, humble, tout appliqué à ses devoirs" . About 1695 every one who came in contact with the prince was in admiration at the change in him&#146; (Catholic Encyclopedia).This Plan dates from 1695 and epitomises the last stage of the Duke&#146;s education. It is formidable. There are three subject headings: Religion, Science, and History - Science comprehending everything not included in the other two, science proper (mathematics), moral philosophy, economics, jurisprudence, &c. The books to be used are specified for each topic. The last subject for Sciences for 1696 is &#145;parcourir les principes de Descartes.&#146; The sequence of the subjects under which history is to be undertaken is interesting, year by year as follows: England, Germany, Spain, the Orient - Arabs or other Muslims, &c - France. Altogether a fascinating and illuminating document.&#145;In saving the life of Fenelon, suppose at the moment when he was conceiving the project of his immortal Telemachus, I should be promoting the benefit of thousands who have been cured by the perusal of it of some error, vice and consequent unhappines&#146; (Godwin, Enquiry p. 41).

        [GLORIOUS REVOLUTION. ABDICATION OF JAMES II]. The debate at large, between the House of Lords and House of Commons, at the free conference, held in the Painted Chamber, in the session of the convention, anno 1688. Relating to the word, Abdicated, and the vacancy of the throne, in the Common's vote

      London: Printed for J. Wickins; and to be sold by the Booksellers of London and Westminster, 1695. FIRST EDITION. Very sympathetic half calf antique, marbled boards, red morocco label gilt, compartments gilt with small tools. IN VERY GOOD CONDITION. Octavo. COLLATION: A-B4 C-F8 G-Q4, COMPLETE. [2], 19-176 pp. FIRST EDITION of these important Parliamentary debates, providing original and valuable documentation of the constitutional crisis that ensued during the Glorious Revolution of 1688. Ours appears to be the only copy currently on the market. 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.) E1288A. ESTC R14958. Provenance: the Sunderland copy (sale of the Bibliotheca Sunderlandiana, Puttick & Simpson, 1882, Fourth Portion, lot 9338) -- subsequently in the now-defunct Theological Institute of Connecticut (with blindstamps).

THE LETTERS OF ? discusses the printing history of these letters, pointing put that although they are almost entirely "impostures" and have little to do with the original Latin from which they purportedly derive, they nonetheless "came to have a decisive role in how Abelard and Heloise were understood for well over a hundred years.

        PRINCE ARTHUR. AN HEROICK POEM. In Ten Books

      London Awnsham and John Churchil 1695 - First Edition. Folio (320 x 205mm), in contemporary full speckled calf, the boards with a central panel design featuring a roll tooled frame in blind using a design of tulips and with large floral cornerpieces in blind, the spine with richly gilt paneled and lined compartments between raised bands, one compartment with a red morocco lettering label and with multiple rules in gilt. [xx], 296. A very pleasing, fresh, crisp and unpressed copy in a handsome period binding. The binding very attractive and well preserved with just light aging or evidence of shelving at the extremities, hinges tight and strong, a couple of joints with just light cracks. FIRST EDITION OF SIR RICHARD BLACKMORE&#146;S EPIC POEM OF THE ARTHURIAN LEGEND. Blackmore was the personal physician to both William III and to Queen Anne, but these important duties did not stop him from being a prolific and popular writer. The author says this work, arguably his best, was written "for the greatest part in coffee-houses" during what free time and precious moments of leisure his career permitted him. The poem begins with Arthur returning to England to claim his throne after the Saxon overthrow of Uther. It tells of Lucifer&#146;s attempt to defeat Arthur&#146;s purpose and serves like an analysis of the development of Christianity in Northern Europe. The final telling of the combat between Tollo and Arthur for the hand of Ethelina, and thus the control of the Kingdom is highly climactic. The work found a great admirer in Dr. Johnson who replied to John Dennis&#146; biting criticism of it with by stating that Dennis was "more tedious and disgusting than the work he condemns." Johnson would later write a "Life of Blackmore". The work won the equal admiration of John Locke. Blackmore found a large audience with this poem, enough so that the second and third editions were all done within this same year. See DNB [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A New Map of the English Empire in America viz Virginia, Maryland, Carolina, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jarsey, New England, Newfoundland, New France &c

      London: "Sold by Robt. Morden at the Atlas in Cornhill / And by Christopher Brown at ye Globe/ near the Westend of St. Pauls/ Church: London", 1695. Copper-engraved map by John Harris. Inset map of the Atlantic Ocean and smaller inset of Boston Harbour. A rare and important map of the American colonies, in the scarce first state. This is in effect a propaganda map, compiled during King William&#39;s War (1689-97). Morden shows the English American colonies thrusting westward, at the expense of the rival French claims. In addition to the Midwest, much of Canada is shown as English. The English colonies along the Atlantic Seaboard are carefully delineated according to English sources, but Canada, the Mississippi Valley, and the Great Lakes are based on French sources, including the maps of Dablon (1672) and Thevenot (1681). Morden still preserves Lederer&#39;s configuration (1672) in his depiction of the interior of the Southeast.At lower right is a large inset map of the North Atlantic, the vital life line between Britain and its American empire. Just above is the title piece crowned by the Royal Arms, and an inset map of Boston Harbor based on Thomas Pound&#39;s A New Mapp of New England from Cape Codd to Cape Sables (1691). The engraver, John Harris was one of the most accomplished members of his profession working in England. The insets are surrounded by decorative acanthus brackets and supports in the arabesque style, a signature motif of the artist. A second state was published in 1719 with the imprint of John Senex.Degrees of Latitude , pp. 358-360; Stevens & Tree, "Comparative Cartography" 20a, in Tooley, The Mapping of America ; McCorkle, New England in Early Printed Maps , 695; Cumming, TheSoutheast in Early Maps , 119; Phillips, A List ofMaps of America, p. 564.

"According to the Gennadius Library, this was translated by Petis de la Croix and edited by La Croix. In fact the privilege is ceded to La Croix, former secretary of the French embassy at Constantinople. It seems likely that there must be a family connection between the two, although the original family of Petis de la Croix was Petis, not La Croix" (Atabey). - Binding slightly rubbed, but on the whole in good condition. The Atabey copy (3 volumes only) commanded £15,000 at Sotheby's in 2002 (lot 646). Atabey 651. OCLC 470426837. Not in Blackmer or Cobham-Jeffrey.
