        An essay concerning humane understanding. In four books

      London: 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, , 1695. Full Calf. Fine. 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.

        Temple of Death, a Poem; written by the Marquess of Normanby. Horace of the Art of Poetry, made English by the Earl of Roscommon. The Duel of the Stags, by the Honourable Sir Robert Howard. Together with several other excellent Poems by the Earls of Rochester and Orrery, Sir Charles Sedley, Sir George Etheridge, the Honourable Mr. Montague, Mr. Granvill, Mr. Dryden, Mr. Chetwood, and Mr. Tate. To which is added several Poems of the Honourable Madam Wharton. The second Edition corrected

      Printed: 1695. 1659-1685 Octavo, 4.25 x 7 inches. Despite the edition statement on the title-page, this is a reissue of the sheets of the much-enlarged third edition of 1693 with a cancel title-page. It is the only edition with the familiar title "The Temple of Death" instead of "A Collection of Poems by Several Hands." The first edition had appeared in 1672, the second in 1673. A-S8,T4, E8, F1, S8 with the publisher's advertisements at the end, text continuous despite mispagination; E8, F1 and S8 cancels, as usual. This copy is bound in full modern calf with gilt lettering on spine. The title page is stained and chipped along the edge. Interesting contemporary notes appear in the margins written by Hannah Robson and Mary Turner. The 1693 sheets include the first appearance in print of seven poems by Anne Wharton (1659-85), only two of which have possible manuscript sources ('On the Storm between Gravesend and Die[p]pe' and 'The Lamentations of Jeremiah'). The niece of Rochester, Wharton was revered during her short lifetime for the piety of her poetry. Gilbert Burnet, with whom she corresponded from 1682, advised her against any association with Aphra Behn, fearing that it would taint her reputation: 'She is so abominably vile a woman. that I am as heartily sorry she has writ any thing in your commendation as I am glad, (I had almost said proud) that you have honoured me as you have done.' The 'commendation' to which Burnet refers, Behn's 'To Mrs. W. on her Excellent Verses', was written in response to Wharton's poem 'To Mrs. A Behn, on what she Writ of the Earl of Rochester', included in this collection. The other poems by Wharton challenge the contemporary portrayal of her as a rather one-dimensional 'demure, pious child'. 'To Melpomene Against Complaint' and 'Wit's Abuse' display her satirical streak; 'My Fate' is charged with a religious scepticism that Burnet encouraged her to suppress (he once reproached her for writing the line 'In death's dark mists the working soul's dissolved'); 'On the Storm between Gravesend and Diepe' suggests the unhappiness of her personal life, in particular her marriage to the future Whig leader Thomas Wharton, as she looks forward to the oblivion of death as a release from the 'dread and harm' of 'tempestuous life'. The miscellany's title-poem is a translation by the Earl of Mulgrave of Philippe Habert's elegy 'Le Temple de la Mort', in spite of the scorn expressed in the publisher's preface for the French nation, and 'the Servile way of following their Modes'.

        Amerique Septentrionale Divisée en ses Principales Parties

      Paris: 1695. Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline. 21 1/4 x 28 inches. Beautifully engraved map of North America, here in the rare first state with California as an island. Although similarly titled to Jaillot's earlier map of 1674, this map is on a slightly smaller scale. Like Jaillot's earlier map, however, it is beautifully engraved and based on the mappings by Sanson. "The attractive title cartouche engraved by C. Simmoneau is adorned with two tropical birds" (Burden). Although Burden cites the first issue as having no date in the top right cartouche enclosing the scale of miles, close inspection reveals the date to have been abraded off. On the present copy, which includes a contemporary manuscript dating of 1695 in the title cartouche, the date "16 - -" appears in the upper right cartouche, with the terminal digits abraded off. Subsequent issues would add a title below Jaillot's name and amend the mapping of the region to reflect changing boundaries and the creation of colonies. The map would be reissued with such changes until the end of the 18th century. The first and early issues, however, are scarce. Burden, The Mapping of North America II: 709; McLaughlin, The Mapping of California as an Island 101; McCorkle, New England in Early Printed Maps 695.5; Tooley, "California as an Island," 38 in Tooley, The Mapping of America.

        Partie de la Nouvelle France

      Paris: 1695. Engraved map. 21 1/4 x 28 1/2 inches. An important French mapping of Canada during King William's War and the "first printed information, however tenuous, on the geography of the region to the north and west of Lake Superior" (Kershaw). This important map of Canada by the French cartographer Jaillot, published in the midst of King William's War, focuses on the French possessions, and identifies the Hudson's Bay Company forts taken by the French: Fort Nelson, Moose River, Rupert House, and Albany Fort. Importantly, the map "offers the first printed information, however tenuous, on the geography of the region to the north and west of Lake Superior, relating in fact to present day Lake Winnipeg ... [Jaillot] has used the correct English version for the shape of Hudson Bay, and marks Port Nelson in roughly the correct location. He shows two large but unnamed lakes towards the source of the Nelson River which can be interpreted as Lake Winnipeg, and he gives a creditable version of Lake Nipigon ... The river to the south of Port Nelson is the first indication of the Hayes River system, and the relationship between the Ottawa River and Lakes Nipissing, Timiskaming and Abitibi is clarified for the first time. Similarly, the canoe route via the Saguenay River, Lac St. Jean and Lac Timagaming to James Bay is shown clearly on a printed map for the first time" (Kershaw, p. 158). This is the second state of the map, with the 1685 date altered to 1695 in the scale of miles cartouche.

Justly celebrated edition printed by Bleau, with the engraved title showing Cicero orating. Dibdin cites Dr. Harwood who wrote: "The text of this edition is beautifully and correctly printed, and the notes of Graevius a wonderful treasure of just criticism and elegant erudition." Dibdin also writes: "After all the labors of subsequent Editors, and the efforts of subsequent Printers, I am not sure whether, for commodiusness, accuracy, and beauty, any advantage will be gained by the exchange of this, for any other separately printed, impression of the Orations of Cicero.

      Amsterdam: Apud Johannem Wolters, 1695. Vellum. Very Good. Thick 4to., pp. [ff 2] + [54] + [1]-859 + [48]; contemporary vellum, lightly soiled; erasure to early holograph on spine; title leaf in red and black; decorative initials and head- and tailpieces; scattered foxing throughout; a sound, attractive copy. Bookplate on front pastedown marked Stowe, possibly biblical scholar Calvin E. Stowe, whose name and the date 1825 are written in pencil on the front flyleaf. Second edition (so stated). Illustrated with engraved frontispiece, an engraved vignette to the letterpress title, and eight engravings in the text, three of which are double-pape. Six of these appear in the text on Jewish law and ritual ("de Tabernaculi Levitici mysteriis"), and one includes an overflap showing the Ark of the Covenant. Witsius (1636-1708), a Dutch scholar of systematic theology, became embroiled in trying to reconcile reigning orthodoxy and Covenant theology, pleasing neither side. The work that he is best-known for is entitled "Economy of the Covenants between God and Man," first published 1677. Full title: Miscellaneorum Sacrorum Libri IV. Quibus De Prophetis & Prophetia, de Tabernaculi Levitici mysteriis, de Collatioine Sacerdotti Aaronis & Christi, de Synderiis Hebraeorum, de IV Bestiis Danielis, de cultu Molochi, de Seculo hoc & futuro, de sensu Epistolarum Apocalypticarum, de Schismate Donastistarum, Diligenter & polixe disseritur.

        (Map of Holy Land- Canaan): Canaan

      London: Christopher Browne (at the Globe near the West End of St. Pauls Church), 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..

        CAMDEN’S BRITANNIA, Newly Translated into English; With Large Additions and Improvements

      Oxford: Edmund Gibson, 1695. First Edition of Edmund Gibson’s translation and the First Edition to include Morden’s maps, considered the finest of the period. With 50 double-page engraved maps, including two fold-out, most by Robert Morden. 9 plates of coins or other antiquities, and numerous woodcut or copper engraved illustrations throughout, several of which are quite large including one nearly half page engraving of Stonehenge and with a frontispiece portrait of Camden. Folio, full contemporary paneled calf, sometime rebacked in period style, the spine with raised bands ruled in gilt, red morocco label boldly lettered in gilt and with gilt edge decoration. cv, 1116, [42]. A well preserved, handsome and pleasing copy of this scarce work with the fine provenance of the Graingers of High Ireby with engraved bookplate. Title-page and frontispiece mounted, A1-4 with some strengthening and support at the gutters, general map or England with backing at the edges, two other maps with edge backing, some normal evidence of use or age, some other leaves with occasional backing at the edges, binding sturdy and strong, expected mellowing and age to antique boards, endleaves renewed. Scarce first edition with Morden’s maps and the first of Gibson’s English translation of this masterpiece on both typography and the Roman and prehistoric remains of Great Britain. The work is a county by county study in detail. The superb engraved maps by Morden are considered the finest of the period. In 1577, with the encouragement of Abraham Ortelius, Camden began his great work Britannia, a topographical and historical survey of all of Great Britain. His stated intention was "to restore antiquity to Britaine, and Britaine to its antiquity." The first edition was published in 1586. The work, which was written in Latin, proved to be exceedingly popular. CAMDEN’S BRITANNIA is a county-by-county description of Great Britain. It is a work of chorography: a study that relates landscape, geography, antiquarianism, and history. Rather than merely writing a history, Camden wanted to describe in detail the Great Britain of the present, and to show how the traces of the past could be discerned in the existing landscape. By this method, he produced the first coherent picture of Roman Britain. While the work itself is a masterpiece, the show-stealer of this edition is unquestionably the superbly engraved maps of Robert Morden. Morden died in 1703, and this is the only edition of the most famous maps published in his lifetime. These maps are the first county maps to show roads ( based on Ogilby’s road maps ) and show the three scales representing great, middle and small miles allowing for the fact that different scales were used in different parts of the country. The extremely rare John Bill maps of the 1620’s were the first to carry latitude and longitude which Morden also shows here. Along with the county by county maps of England there are also maps of Scotland, Ireland and the smaller British Islands. Included also is a “Life of Camden”, Camden’s Preface and other studious materials.

      Paris, de l'Imprimerie Royale, et se vend chez Jean Anisson 1695.. FIRST EDITION, 1695, French text. 12mo, approximately 170 x 100 mm, 6¾ x 4 inches, numerous diagrams and a few illustrations in the text, pages (12), 492, bound in full old mottled leather, raised bands, gilt lettering and gilt decoration in compartments to spine. Spine worn with 10 mm (½ inch) amateur repair at head and 5 mm (¼ inch) amateur repair at tail, upper hinge cracked and holding on the cords, lower hinge starting to crack at head, corners worn, many pages lightly age browned, occasional dark spot, no loss of text, small hole in 1 margin, 1 margin with 2 short closed tears and a small chip, 1 corner tip torn off. Textblock tight and firm, a good copy. Philippe de la Hire (1640 - 1718) was a French mathematician who was best known for his work on conic sections, geodesy and astronomy. He was elected to the Académie Royale des Sciences in 1678 and in 1683 he was appointed to the chair of mathematics at the Collège Royale. Four years later he was appointed, in addition, to the chair of architecture at the Académie 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 finding the correct form to be given to the fusee in spring clocks. The form is found geometrically on the assumption that the force of the spring is proportional to the angular movement of the barrel." Baillie, Clocks and Watches, page 122.

        Canada Orientale nell' America Settentrionale descritta

      Venice: V.M. Coronelli, [circa 1695]. Copper-engraved map. 18 1/2 x 25 1/8 inches. 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.

        Thesaurus Geographicus. A new body of geography: or, a compleat description of the Earth … Collected with great care from the most approv'd geographers and modern travellers and discoveries, by several hands

      London: printed for Abel Swall and Tim. Child, 1695. Folio. (12 3/8 x 7 7/8 inches). 58 engraved maps, plans and town plans (comprising: 2 full- page maps, 56 printed within the text (24 maps and charts, 32 plans of fortified towns). Contemporary panelled calf, covers tooled in blind, the spine in six compartments with raised bands, brown morocco lettering-piece in the second compartment, the others each tooled in gilt with a single centrally-placed Tudor rose tool (neat repairs to joints). A fine copy of this valuable compendium, fully illustrated with an attractive series of maps and town plans. Shirley notes that some of the maps in this work "carry Moll's signature", but Moll's sources are acknowledged in the preface, where it is stated that the maps "are drawn according to those of Sanson, De Wit, and Visscher; and tho' the size of them be small, they contain the Names of all the most considerable Places. The ...[Plans] of the Fortified Towns will give a better Idea of the Strength of the Places than the best Description in Words could do. They are mostly taken from those publish't at Paris by Monsieur du Fer the French King's Engineer, for the use of the Duke of Burgundy, which are generally esteemed the most exact." The collation and pagination of this work is erratic, suggesting that it was printed by different shops - but it is undoubtedly complete. The triple hemisphere world map at the start of the Geography section is particularly attractive, and there are two valuable maps which specifically refer to the Americas: on p.473 is a map of the entire continent (with California still shown as an island); and "A Map of the English Plantations in America" (covering from just north of Boston to the southern shores of the Caribbean) on p. 480.

        Virginiae Partis Australis, et Floridae Partis Orientalis, Interjacentinumq[ue] Regionum Nova Discriptio

      Amsterdam: Gerardum Valk and Petrum Schenk, 1695. 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. Jansson's map was, in turn, a very close copy of Willem Blaeu's identically named map, which was published in 1620. This edition shows correctly labeled lattitudes 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).. Map. Very Good.

        Amerique Septentrionale Divisée en ses Principales Parties

      Paris: 1695. Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline. 21 1/4 x 28 inches. Beautifully engraved map of North America, here in the rare first state with California as an island. Although similarly titled to Jaillot's earlier map of 1674, this map is on a slightly smaller scale. Like Jaillot's earlier map, however, it is beautifully engraved and based on the mappings by Sanson. "The attractive title cartouche engraved by C. Simmoneau is adorned with two tropical birds" (Burden). Although Burden cites the first issue as having no date in the top right cartouche enclosing the scale of miles, close inspection reveals the date to have been abraded off. On the present copy, which includes a contemporary manuscript dating of 1695 in the title cartouche, the date "16 - -" appears in the upper right cartouche, with the terminal digits abraded off. Subsequent issues would add a title below Jaillot's name and amend the mapping of the region to reflect changing boundaries and the creation of colonies. The map would be reissued with such changes until the end of the 18th century. The first and early issues, however, are scarce.

        An Essay on the State of England, in Relation to its Trade, its Poor, and its Taxes, for Carrying on the Present War in France,

      First Edition, complete with half title, [20], 178pp octavo, contemporary panelled calf, neatly rebacked, a very good copy. Bristol: Printed by W. Bonny, for the Author, 1695. * Wing C 730. Kress 1870. Goldsmiths' 3074. Sabin 11200. Hollander 422. Massie 1310. Hutchinson, Before Adam Smith, p. 389n. Heckscher, Mercantilism II, 119, 169ff. * John Cary (d. circa 1720), was a Bristol merchant. The Essay was said by Locke to be 'the best discourse I ever read on that subject' (quoted by F. Y. Edgeworth in Palgrave I, 230; see Locke's correspondence with Cary in the British Museum), and is significant for its advocacy of technological progress. 'Cary was evidently esteemed by his fellow citizens as a man of sound practical judgment, for he acted as an arbitrator in commercial disputes, and was chosen by the Bristol committee of trade as their representative in London to advise the city members in matters affecting Bristol trade' (DNB III, 1153f). This rare first edition, Bristol published, was also possibly the most influential of all seventeenth century treatises on the poor. Cary proposed to deal with the problem of poverty in the city of Bristol by erecting a workhouse at the general charge in which those who could not work (the old, the sick, the disabled etc.) would be accommodated free of charge and in which children who could not be provided for would receive some useful education and training. Those who could work would be provided with profitable employment and laziness was firmly discouraged. To this end Cary sought to encourage local merchants to regard the workhouse as a useful source of labour. Cary's proposals were destined to be copied up and down the kingdom. They embodied the idea of "Putting the Poor to work" which for a while was the dominating principle in the history of the poor. By 1700 Cary was able to see beneficial results of his exertions: "The success hath answered our expectation; we are freed from beggars, our old people are comfortably provided for; our Boys and Girls are educated to Sobriety, and brought up to delight in Labour...". See Sidney and Beatrice Webb, 'The Old Poor Law' pp.108-116. For Cary, the encouragement of trade and the amelioration of poverty by setting the poor on work were two sides of the same question. Thus the other major strand in this book deals with the question of trade. In the preface Cary mentions the "Plantation Trade" as one of the largest issues facing the British economy. Some feared that through emigration the home land might become depopulated. In this way, since "People are or may be the Wealth of a Nation", the growth of Plantations might prove harmful to the home economy. From page 66 et seq. Cary argues that they are a benefit. If the produce of the Plantations came to England for processing and distribution including re-exportation the result would be a substantial net benefit to the home country. "England would become the Centre of Trade, and standing like the Sun in the midst of its Plantations would not only refresh them, but also draw Profits from them..." Cary goes on to list the laws which would be needed to formalise and protect the arrangement. These laws would forbid any exportation from the Plantations except to England; to prevent manufacturing in the colonies; to prevent the exportation of raw materials to the colonies from the home country and finally, in compensation to the colonies "To lay open the African Trade, that the inhabitants may be supply'd with Negroes on easie Terms." These arguments are elaborated (pp 66-89) with much on the use of Negro labour. The role of the American Plantations remains a theme throughout the discussion on trade which makes up the rest of the volume. * PROVENANCE: Earl of Hardwicke, Lord Chancellor, with his armorial bookplate, perhaps from Wimpole Hall. Charles Yorke (1722 -1770) was Lord Chancellor of Great Britain, the second son of Philip Yorke, 1st Earl of Hardwicke (whose copy this originally probably was). Charles Yorke was educated at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. In 1745 he published "An able treatise on the law of forfeiture for high treason," in defence of the severe sentences his father had given to the Scottish Jacobite peers following the Battle of Culloden. In the following year he was called to the bar. His father being at this time Lord Chancellor (to which he also eventually succeeded), Yorke obtained a sinecure appointment in the Court of Chancery in 1747, and entered parliament as member for Reigate, a seat which he afterwards exchanged for that for the University of Cambridge. In 1751 he became counsel to the East India Company, and in 1756 he was appointed Solicitor-General, a place which he retained in the administration of the elder Pitt, of whose foreign policy he was a powerful defender. He resigned with Pitt in 1761, but in 1762 became Attorney-General under Lord Bute. He supported the repeal of the Stamp Act, while urging the simultaneous passing of the Declaratory Act. His most important measure was the constitution which he drew up for the province of Quebec, and which after his resignation of office became the Quebec Act of 1774. In 1770 he was invited by the Duke of Grafton to become Chancellor.

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.

VD17 23:675924G. Boken förbjöds genom kungligt brev den 9 december 1695 då den inte undergått stadgad censur. Leibnitz (1653-1705) var tysk präst och flyttade på grund av läromässiga stridigheter till Stockholm 1694, där han fick tillfälle att predika i Tyska kyrkan. Boken är till största delen utdrag ur Arndts "Sanna kristendom", och till återstående del citat från Christian Scriver, Joachim Lütkemann m.fl. Bokens titel är hämtad från "Ordspråksboken" 25:11: "Den som i sinom tid talat är såsom gyllne äpplen uti silverskålom." I bokstavsordning är den kristnes nyckelord uppställda, från "Abendmahl" till "Zwey beste Wort, 1. Peccavi. 2 Miserere." Förklaringarna under nyckelorden har en tydligt pietistisk karaktär. "Pånyttfödelse" behandlas under "Neue Geburth" och mer utförligt, försiktigtvis under ordet "Nativitet". Boken "angreps snart av L:s ärkeortodoxe ämbetsbroder Aug. Strauch, som [...] funnit anstötliga ordasätt i hans predikningar. L:s skrift utgör en liten antologi av religiösa, mestadels av en fin mystik präglade iakttagelser av det religiösa livet. Då L återkallade de 'misstänkta ordasätt och villfarande läror' som boken innehöll frikändes han av en biskoplig granskningskommission. L var som predikant högt skattad." (citat ur Em. Linderholms "Sven Rosen och hans insats i frihetstidens radikala pietism". Uppsala 1911, s. 89. Skriften är senare analyserad av Bengt Wahlström i "Kyrkohistorisk årsskrift" 1954, s. 31 ff.)

Ad Jus Feudale Utrumque Germanicum et Longobardicum Introductio seu Institutiones ex Genuinis Principiis Succincte Concinnatae, Et ad Fori Feudalis Hodierni Usum Directa. Strassburg: Sumptibus Jo. Friderici Spoor, 1695. [xvi], 108, [2] pp. Octavo (6-1/2" x 3-1/2). Contemporary (or near-contemporary) three-quarter calf over marbled boards, gilt spine with raised bands and lettering piece. Wear to spine ends, corners bumped and lightly worn. Woodcut head-pieces, tail-pieces and decorated initials. Light browning, occasional light foxing. Early owner signature to front free endpaper, interior otherwise clean. * First edition. Derived in part from Roman models but otherwise based on Germanic law, the Lombard Laws were introduced by the Lombard kings after their conquest of Italy in 568CE. It was a successful system that became more sophisticated during the following decades, especially after the union of the Lombards with the Frankish kingdom. This body of law was a decisive influence in Italian law and legal study into the seventeenth century and did not wholly disappear until the introduction of French-based codes in the nineteenth century. Schilter, a Ratskonsulent in Frankfurt and professor of law at the University of Strassburg, was a sophisticated jurist and a pioneering scholar of comparative law and legal history. The ground-breaking Ad Jus Feudale was one of the first modern studies of its kind. A standard work, it went through nine editions by 1750. OCLC locates 1 copy of the 1695 edition in a North American library (Harvard Law School). Stintzing/Landesberg, Geschichte der Deutschen Rechtswissenschaft III:1, n. 35.
