        Map of Holy Land- Canaan): Canaan

      Christopher Browne (at the Globe near the West End of St. Pauls Church), London 1695 - Good, hand colored outlines, This is the Christopher Browne imprint (see Roderick M. Barron's description in his catalogue 33 as to the recent discovery of this imprint, separate from the more commonly reported Bassett and Chiswell 1676 plate), which may be more common than initially thought. Browne published a bit later, and had purchased the Bassett and Chiswell plates, then changed the name on a few of those (of which this plate was one; very few survive), and the date here is approximate. This is a striking image with Jerusalem inset, newly updated and published in the 1676 edition (date approximate) of Speed's " A Prospect of the Most Famous Parts of the World". There is some general browning, with some professional restorations at folds (virtually no image loss), mild upper margin staining (mostly in blank areas) and backed with Japon paper. A custom case was made for this map, after it's restoration (with ties; case in excellent condition). Decorative title (flanked by images of Moses and Aaron) and description cartouches. This is a later edition of plate 39 from Nebenzahl's "Maps of the Holy Land", with imagery based on earlier maps of Montanus and Stella. The image measures 15x20.5 inches (38x52cm). English text on verso. Speed was perhaps most famous for his early county maps of Great Britain. He died in 1629, 2 years after the first edition of "Prospect." was published.

        Isola di Madagascar ò di San Lorenzo

      Venice:, 1695. Size: 450 x 600 mm. Copper engraving. Hand coloured. Good condition with a small hole in the right hand margin. A large and impressive rendering of the island of Madagascar, with numerous place names around the coast. Although the west coast of the island is well defined, the east shows the fictitious concave format of earlier maps. The title is displayed in a classical floral wreath cartouche at the bottom left; at lower right there is a distance table on a draped cloth; the coast line of Mozambique fills the west corner. The lines of latitude are decorated with fleur-de-lis indicating north, and the Tropic of Cancer divides the lower portion of the map. This is one of the finest available maps of the island, produced by arguably Italy's finest cartographer, from his fine Venetian atlas Corso Geografico Universale.

      Rome, Italy: Gio. Giacomo Komarek Boëmo, 1695. Several variant spellings abound for the artist's name. Two volumes bound as one, with continuous pagination. Descrizzione delle imagini dipinte da Rafaelle d'Urbino....; La favola di Amore e Psiche dipinta da Rafaelle d'Urbino, Bellori, Giovanni Pietro (c.1636-1700), artista d'Urbino, G.G.

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.

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." Cicognara 3369.. Presumed First Edition. Hard Cover. Good Plus. Illus. by d'Urbino, Rafaelle. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall.

        A new Method of Educating Children: or, Rules and Directions for the Well Ordering and Governing Them during Their Younger Years Shewing that they are capable, at the Age of Three Years, to be caused to learn Languages, and most Arts and Sciences - also, what method is to be used by breeding women -

      London: Printed for J. Salisbury, at the Rising-Sun in Cornhill and J. Harris, at the Harrow, in the Poultrey, 1695. First edition. 12mo. Title printed within double rule. [8], 102, [10] pp. At foot of title page: Price bound one shilling. Bound in full brown goatskin grained as sheep, boards ruled in blind (preserving the original lower cover), spine titled in gilt, title-page and following leaf have been inlaid at edges, restoration to outer rule at head of title, margins of last leaf repaired, expertly conserved. Wing T3190; OCLC 14560949 . A very scarce little tract by the amazing and entirely self-educated Tryon (1634-1703), the "Pythagorean," vegetarian, mystic and practical philsopher who has often been compared to his admirer Benjamin Franklin, who himself was greatly impressed in his youth by Tryon's WAY TO HEALTH. "- [Franklin] became in his day a 'Tryonist'; nor is it in any degree fanciful to discover a marked likeness between the style of Franklin and the quaint moralising of Tryon, though there is in the latter a vein of mystical piety to which 'Poor Richard,' with all his virtues, is a stranger -" - DAB. Despite some peculiar notions (e.g., eating roots is to be avoided, for "by reason of their Crude and Earthy qualities, they naturally beget wind -"), Tryon's emphasis on diet rings especially modern, and his deep respect for the learning abillities of children underlies his contempt for a system of "schooling" which is based on terror and imprisonment. In his Preface, the author laments the waste of the current system of eduction in which school masters keep "Children (like Spiders in a Circle) a long time under the Terror of their Jurisdiction and Discipline, in order only to promote their own Profit and Interest -" Tryon's treatise is rare - OCLC records only a few copies in the US and the British Isles, with only two copies at auction in the past thirty years

        [Giuseppe Tortoriti] Joseph Tortoriti, faisant le personage de Scaramouche

      Augsburg: Published in Augsburg by Jeremias Wolff, 1695. This is a handsome print, with breathtaking early colour, depicting the celebrated Italian comic actor Guiseppe Tortoriti, in the character of Scaramouche Giuseppe Tortoriti, shown as Scaramouche, was usually Pasqariel, and was known by the latter name. He was one of the leading commedia dell'arte performers when Louis XIV closed the theatre in Paris in 1697 because of a supposed insult to Mme. Maintenon. Louis selected Tortoriti to form a new company, which was allowed to perform in France but not within 30 leagues of Paris. Tortoriti's troupe played mainly around Toulouse. Italian troupes did not perform in Paris again until after Louis' death. This bold print is from a colourful series of costume prints engraved and published by Jeremias Wolff at the beginning of the 18th century. The series depicts prancing figures in flamboyant theatrical costumes, and is a superb example of early costume prints. Costume and trade prints, such as this, became extremely popular in Europe at the close of the seventeenth century and continued to serve as a source of inspiration until the decadent days of the Art Deco movement in the 1920's. This magnificent series depicts the costumes of ballet dancers, and opera singers, as well as the vibrant apparel of a jester at a masque ball. As is typical of this genre of print, the figures are pictured in front of an architectural or pastoral background and richly coloured in thick opaque colour with vibrant gold highlights. The series was executed and produced by the prolific German publisher Jeremias Wolff. Wolff came from a family of engravers and became extremely successful, both as an engraver and as a publisher and printseller. He was one of the most prolific publishers and engravers in Augsburg and is responsible for some of the finest engravings to come out of the city. In addition to a number of other costume books and portraits, he was a successful map publisher and it is for his skill as a cartographic engraver that he is perhaps best known. Colas, Bibliographie General du Costume et de la Mode ; Lipperheide, Katalog der Freiherrlich von Lipperheide'schen Kostum-Bibliothek, 1896-1901. Engraving with superb early colour and rich gold highlights. Printed on watermarked laid paper. In excellent condition. Image size: 9 5/8 x 6 7/8 inches.

        Act of parliament, for erecting a bank in Scotland.

      Edinburgh, July 17. 1695. - Folio. 6pp. Uncut, folded sheets as issued. With the original conjugate blank leaf. A good copy. Goldsmiths' 3171. Wing S1127B. EN only. One of two folio editions. The other is of 4pp, Wing S 1127A (EN, ES only). There is also a quarto edition, Wing 1128. (L, LUG, EN; CH, IU, WF, Y). The folio versions are considerably scarcer than the 4to version and Wing seems to give them precedence. This special act passed by the Scots Parliament brought the Bank of Scotland into being and together with six other acts subsequently obtained, forms the constitution of the Bank of Scotland, with the exclusive privilege of monopoly for 21 years. It was due to the efforts of William Paterson, who had, in the previous year, helped to establish the Bank of England.

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." Near contemporary calf (rubbed), spine with elaborate blind-stamped decoration, vellum spine label, all edges sprinkled red. Very good. (1361)

        Canada Orientale nell' America Settentrionale descritta

      V.M. Coronelli, Venice 1695 - Decorative 17th century mapping of Newfoundland and the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Vincenzo Maria Coronelli, a Venetian scholar and Minorite Friar, became one of the most celebrated map and globe makers of his era. Throughout his industrious life he produced more than one-hundred terrestrial and celestial globes, several hundred maps, and a wealth of cartographic publications. In 1683, he completed the Marly Globes for Louis XIV, the largest and most magnificent globes ever made. In 1684 he founded the Academia Cosmografica degli Argonauti, the first geographical society, and was appointed Cosmographer of the Republic of Venice. He published two atlases, the Atlante Veneto (Venice, 1691) and the Isolario (1696-98), and compiled the first encyclopedia to be arranged alphabetically. This fine map of Newfoundland and the Gulf of St. Lawrence, with parts of Labrador and Nova Scotia, appeared in the 1692-94 Corso Geografico and in the second edition of Atlante Veneto 1695-1697. The map closely follows Coronelli and Nolin's 1689 mapping of Canada and the American coast, though is more focussed on the Newfoundland and Gulf of St. Lawrence region. Derived from manuscript and printed sources, the map is remarkably accurate for its time. As with many of Coronelli's charts, elaborate cartouches provide decorative touches. Text concerning the Grand Banks appears at the bottom of the map, along with a note off the northeastern shore of Newfoundland concerning Cabot's discoveries. Burden, The Mapping of North America II: 698; Kershaw, Early Printed Maps of Canada 162. Copper-engraved map.

        An essay concerning humane understanding. In four books.

      printed for Awnsham and John Churchil, at the Black Swan in Pater-Noster-Row, and Samuel Manship, at the Ship in Cornhill, near the Royal Exchange,, London 1695 - 2º in 4s: [40],407,[1],[12, Index and publisher's advert]pp (91-94 mis-numbered 93-96; 121 mis-numbered 123), with engraved frontispiece portrait of Locke by P. Vanderbanck after Sylvester Brounower. Recently rebound to period style by Clive Jones in full paneled calf, boards ruled and decorated in blind, spine in seven compartments between raised bands ruled in gilt, red morocco lettering piece gilt, all edges speckled red. A Fine, bright, tight, clean copy (text block apparently washed), with loss of several letters P4 and closed tear, without loss, through several lines Hh. Provenance: Early ownership signatures (of H. Jowett and J. [probably John] Loxley) on front free end paper, placing this copy at Cambridge (respectively, Magdalene College and St. Catharine's College, dated "Novr 23rd 1830") and of Trafford Barriston to title page. Wing L2741. Yolton 63. Pforzheimer 599 and PMM 164 (for first edition). Third Edition of the "most popular and enduring of all Locke's writings (Yolton)," a line-by-line reprint of the Second Edition (1694) with only minor adjustments and the errata corrected, but still with many misprints. First published in 1690, the Essay attracted immediate attention, both favorable and not, much of it directed toward Locke's concept of the mind as tabula rasa. "This was unacceptable—even shocking—to many of Locke's readers, including the most profound of his early critics, Leibniz. For Locke the human understanding was initially like ‘white Paper, void of all Characters': all the ideas which it subsequently contains are derived from experience, either external or internal. The account of how the mind puts together various complex ideas from the material provided by sensation and reflection occupies Book 2, the longest in the Essay. Book 3 is on words, which have meaning only by acting as signs of ideas; Book 4 is on knowledge and opinion. . . . Perhaps the most original aspect of the Essay is, however, the conception of philosophy which it embodies. Locke abandoned the whole enterprise of first philosophy as practised from Aristotle to Descartes: he did not see himself as laying a metaphysical foundation on which natural philosophers could then build, but rather (as he put it in the ‘Epistle to the Reader’) ‘as an Under-Labourer clearing Ground a little, and removing some of the Rubbish, that lies in the way to Knowledge’. (ODNB) In the substantially revised second edition, published May, 1694, the section in the chapter ‘Of power’ dealing with freedom was entirely recast, and there was a new chapter, ‘Of identity and diversity’, in which Locke equated personal identity with continuity of consciousness, and not with continuity of any spiritual substance." According to Pforzheimer, "The importance of few philosophical books have been so quickly recognized . . . It passed through many editions in English and has several times been translated." (Yolton tallies 56 different editions and translations by 1800, not counting abstracts and abridgments.) N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        Camden's Britannia, Newly Translated Into English: With Large Additions and Improvements. Translated By Edmund Gibson

      London: F. Collins for A. Swalle, 1695 - The first edition of Edmund Gibson's English translation of Camden's Britannia, one of the great achievements of English scholarship, the first comprehensive topographical survey of Great Britian, and a book of the greatest importance to the develpment of the nation's self image. Camden's work first appeared in Latin in 1586 in a thick octavo volume dedicated to Lord Burghley: "It received immediate recognition - and its successive, enlarged editions of 1587, 1590, 1594, 1600 (dedicated to Queen Elizabeth) and 1607 (dedicated to King James) and its English translation of 1610 by Philemon Holland attest to its popularity - Throughout the decades after its first appearance Camden continued to revise the text and experiment with the work's format and apparatus, and he worked closely with Holland on the 1610 translation. In spite of the author's collaboration, however, the translation is often inaccurate and takes liberties with the material, and for this reason is regarded as inferior to Edmund Gibson's translation of 1695. By 1607, the year of its last Latin edition in Camden's lifetime, published in folio and containing an index, maps by Saxton and Norden, and engravings of coins, monuments, and topographical sites, it had evolved into an impressive and editorially sophisticated work of scholarship" (Oxford DNB) First edition of Gibson's translation. Folio. Engraved frontispiece portrait of the author, 50 double-page and folding maps (3) by Robert Morden and others, 9 full-page engraved plates of coins and antiquities, numerous woodcuts and some engravings in the text, including a half-page engraving of Stonehenge, woodcut initials. Contemporary calf tooled in blind to a panel design, rebacked to style, covers rubbed, endpapers renewed, small dampstain to lower outer corner of few first leaves, otherwise contents generally near fine.

        A New Map of the English Empire in America Viz Virginia Maryland Carolina Pennsylvania New York New Jersey New England by Rob: Morden

      Sold by Robt. Morden at the Atlas in Cornhill./ And by Christopher Brown at ye Globe/ near the Westend of St. Pauls/ Church: London, London 1695 - A rare and important map of the American colonies, in the scarce first state. This is in effect a propaganda map, compiled during the War of the League of Augsburg, or King William'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'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'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. Provenance: deaccessioned from the Western Reserve Historical Society, 2001 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, The Southeast in Early Maps , 119; Phillips, A List of Maps of America, p. 564.

        Les Amours d'Abailard & d'Heloïse [bound with 6 first and early French editions of their Letters; see below]

      Amsterdam: Chez Pierre Chayer, 1695 - William Levitan, in his recent translation ABELARD & HELOISE. 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. John Hughes' English translation of these into English became the standard in the English-speaking world, and even as late as 1940 editions of the English versions appeared. Alexander Pope based his famous "Eloisa to Abelard" on Hughes translation Jacques Alluis' account of the tragic, legendary love affair between Peter Abelard - the preminent scholastic theologian of his day - and Heloise, his brilliant pupil, was first printed in 1675. In 1695 publisher Pierre Chayer began to issue separatel nthe three letters to Abelard from Héloïse, and the three to Héloïse from Abelard; of the six, only the first letter jad been printed earlier (in 1693 by Chayer); he also reprinted Jacques Alluis' account of the tragic affair in uniform format, with separate title-pages and pagination. Their correspondence is, or purports to be, one of the great series of love letters in the Western world, and although Chayer issued a collected edition later in the same year with a new preface from the printer, this is a bound collection of the separate parts as they first appeared in French. Each bears the imprint of Pierre Chayer, Amsterdam, 1695. Unless otherwise noted they are firsts. They are as follows, in the order of binding; 1.) Lettre d'Héloïse à Abailard. [12]-47 pp. Barbier II, 1136f; OCLC 465189673 (2 copies - none in America). First published by Chayer in 1693. This letter, unlike the 5 others, has every appearance of being authentic, and follows closely (allowing for idiomatic and stylistic differences) the English version of Leviatan. 2.) Réponse d'Abailard à la lettre d'Héloïse. 48 pp. OCLC: 491517699 3.) Lettre seconde d'Heloise à Abailard. 40 pp. OCLC: 67759473 [Variant title ("Seconde lettre -") and pagination (30pp.)] 4.)
