      Paul Marret, Amsterdam 1695 - Later edition in French (first published in Paris, 1676; the work first published in English in London, 1648). 12mo. 2 volumes bound as one: (24), 200, 178; (14), 318 pp. Extra engraved title pages to each volume, 16 folding maps and plates. Sabin 26304. Hill 665 (for the 1648 edition): "[1625 to 1637] Gage spent in Central America, Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Panama. 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)

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.

        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.

In 1686, he decided to write epic poetry and show his genuine devotion to Christianity, & wrote Saint Paulin, évêque de Nôle (St. Paulinus, Bishop of Nola, about Paulinus of Nola). In 1694-5 he wrote: L’Apologie des Femmes, Le Triomphe de sainte Geneviève, L’idylle à Monsieur de la Quintinie. All rather difficult titles to acquire.

        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.) Lettre troisième d'Heloise à Abailard. 36 pp. OCLC: 67759475 5.) Nouvelle reponse d'Abailard a Heloise. Lettre dernière. 35 [1, blank] pp. OCLC: 456735680 (2 copies) 6.)

        Pas Kaart Van De Zee Kusten Van Virginia.

      Amsterdam 1695 - "This chart continues south from the van Keulen chart of New York, from the Atlatic City area south to the mouth of Chesapeake Bay, althouth this time orientated with north to the right. Again drawn by C.J. Voogt, it is mainly derived from the Hermann map of 1675, published in England. However, Vooght has an additional source, as yet untraced, from which he has copied a greater number of soundings, so important for safe navigation. The chart is remarkable for the very early appearance of William Penn's Philadelphia, here shown as 'Filadelphy', without even a symbol for a town. The Pennsylvania colony had only been founded by Royal Charter in 1681, and did not gain cty status until 1701."

As a result, Johannes van Keulen had the opportunity to obtain copperplates, privileges, and stocks of many of his former competitors. Besides manuals and cross-staffs, Johannes produced his famed 'ZeeAtlas' (Sea Atlas, 5 volumes), and 'ZeeFakkel' (Sea pilotbook, 5 volumes).-

He discovered protozoa and bacteria and was the first to describe spermatozoa and red blood corpuscles. The first independent part of this celebrated collection of letters addressed to the Royal Society.These letters incorporate his epoch-making experiments with the MICROSCOPE, and his researches and discoveries opened up a new era of scientific investigation and earned him the title ¿Father of Protozoology and Bacteriology¿. Many of the letters are of outstanding importance and include his account of the animalcula. The personal copy of Thomas Molyneux (1661-1733), Irish physician, professor of Physic at Trinity College and fellow of the Royal Society of London. The visit of Molyneux to Leeuwenhoek's home in 1685 on behalf of the Royal Society to inspect his microscopes is well documented in the literature. Molyneux gave a report of his visit in a letter dated February 13, to the secretary of the Royal Society, Francis Aston. It was read at a February meeting: "I have hitherto delayed, answering your last, because I could not give you an account of Mynheer LEEWENHOECK; but last week I was to wait upon him in your name: he shewed me.

        Pera librorum juvenilium: qua, ingenuos, viamque ad eruditionem et bonam mentem affectantes adolescentes donat.

      Altdorf, H. Meyer, 1695. 8:o. Dubbelsidig grav. frontespis,(36),749,770-72,753-940,(2,2 blanka) s. Titelsidan tryckt i rött och svart. Samtida trevligt ngt nött mörkt stänkdekorerat skinnbd med upphöjda bind och oxiderad ryggdekor samt spår efter mindre pappersetiketter, bl.a. nedtill på ryggen. Trevliga målade röda och gulbruna snitt. Ryggskinnet och ytterfalsarna torra och hårdare nötta samt med ett mindre maskhål upptill på ryggen och två minimala i ytterfalsarna. Försättsbladet med spår av en gammal auktionsetikett. Gamla lagningar på s. 113 med förlust av någon bokstav, liten lagning även på s. 123 och reva i yttermarginalen på s. 927. Med namnteckning "Carolus Adolphus" på titelbladet och Säfstaholms litograferade exlibris.. VD17 1:044258S. Johann Hofmann i Nürnberg var förläggare. Detta är endast första delen av fem utgivna. Totalt omfattar verket över 6000 sidor och denna del innehåller bl.a. utdrag ur Plinius och Cicero samt "Præcepta artis rhetoricæ", "poësi germanica" och "poësi latina". "Pera librorum juvenilium", eller fritt översatt "Ryggsäck med böcker för ungdomen", brukar räknas som den första encyklopedin för barn och avsåg att sammanfatta den kunskap som lärdes ut i skolorna. Johann Christoph Wagenseil (1633-1705) var orientalist och professor i Altdorf. Han är bekant bl.a. genom den Nürnbergkrönika han skrev som låg till grund för Wagners "Mästersångarna i Nürnberg". Den "Carolus Adolphus" som skrivit sin namnteckning på titelbladet är identisk med Carl Adolf Gyllenstierna (1699-1733), son till Christoffer Gyllenstierna och prinsessan Katarina av Pfalz, den sistnämnda i sin tur dotter till Karl X Gustavs bror Adolf Johan av Pfalz och Elsa Elisabet Brahe. Carl Adolf Gyllenstierna var därmed syssling till Karl XII och sannolikt använde han sig av signaturen "Carolus Adolphus" för att framhäva sin kungliga börd. Gyllenstierna blev lagman på Gotland och mördades i Karlskrona av Vilhelm Krassow. De flesta böcker som har synlig proveniens ur hans bibliotek är skolböcker från hans ungdom. Hela eller delar av hans bibliotek tycks ha hamnat i det Bondeska släktbiblioteket på Säfstaholm, möjligen genom arv till hans halvsyster Maria Gustafva Gyllenstierna (1672-1737), gift med Carl Bonde. Då det finns spår av en gammal auktionsetikett kan det tänkas att de var ämnade för auktion och att hon antingen förvärvade dem före eller på denna

        Masque en habit de Paysan

      Published in Augsburg by Jeremias Wolff, Augsburg 1695 - This is a handsome print, with breathtaking early colour, depicting the costume of a singer at a masque ball. 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. The series in not mentioned in either Colas or Lipperheide. 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 5/8 inches.

There are three imaginary inland lakes labeled: 1) Lacus aqua dulcis adeo magnus ut ex una ripa conspici altara non posit (A freshwater lake so large one shore cannot be seen from the opposite side); 2) In hoc lacu Indigenae argenti grana inveniunt (In this lake, natives find grains of silver); 3) Lacus et insula sarrope, abundat optimus fruct (There is abundant fruit at Lake Sarrope and island.)

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."

      Amsterdam: Gerardum Valk and Petrum Schenk, 1695. Map. Very Good. Map. Circa 1695. Double-page hand-colored map. Map is approximately 19" x 15"; the sheet is approximately 24" x 20.5". This map is a re-issue of Jan Jansson's map of southern Virginia, the Carolinas, and Georgia, which was first printed in 1621.

This edition shows correctly labeled latitudes and longitudes, French and British coats of arms in their countries' claimed territories, and one of the first identifications of Newport News. There are three imaginary inland lakes labeled: 1) Lacus aqua dulcis adeo magnus ut ex una ripa conspici altara non posit (A freshwater lake so large one shore cannot be seen from the opposite side); 2) In hoc lacu Indigenae argenti grana inveniunt (In this lake, natives find grains of silver); 3) Lacus et insula sarrope, abundat optimus fruct (There is abundant fruit at Lake Sarrope and island.) Clean with several light spots of marginal toning. No rips or tears. Minor offestting of color in the Atlantic Ocean. Tiny pinhole in the lower left corner above the "N" in orientalis. Another map of this edition in lesser condition sold for $1440 (including buyer's commission) at Swann's Auction on 6 June 2013 (Lot 202).

        Relation de Voyage Mysterieux de L'Isle de la Vertu, à Oronte

      Paris: Christophe Remy, 1695. Small octavo; a very good copy in contemporary calf, slightly worn. The "Protector to the Indians" tells of an island of virtue. Second edition of this rare spiritual romance. First published in Rouen in 1684, this educational novel is written as an allegorical voyage to the imaginary island of "Virtue" on the River Orontes, the chief Syrian river, and the standard route to Egypt since antiquity. The island proves to be a peaceful religious utopia, presented as a model for the reader. Its tenets are suggested by the work's preface, the poem "Epistre à Damon", that is, Damon of Syracuse, who selflessly pledged his life to Dionysus of Syracuse in return for the freedom of his friend. This work has long been attributed to Juan de Palafox y Mendoza (1600-1659), an important figure in Spanish Catholicism. He spent much of his life as envoy and bishop to Mexico, where his reluctance to convert by any means other than persuasion gained him the title "Protector to the Indians". He returned to Spain after a long-running dispute with the Jesuits, whose privileges he sought to temper. His writings, consisting largely of ascetic, pastoral, and historical treatises, were published in Madrid in the eighteenth century, not long after he narrowly missed out on canonisation.

Four years later he was appointed, in addition, to the chair of architecture at the Academie Royale. Geometry which he had studied during 4 years in Italy was a special interest of his. "This work marks a significant step toward the elaboration of a modern manual of practical mechanics, suitable for engineers of various disciplines... he furnished useful descriptions and put forth the suggestion of adopting an epicycloidal profile for gear wheels." DSB 7, 578. "Pages 231 - 237 are devoted to finding the correct form to be given to the fusee in spring clocks.
