        M. Tullii Ciceronis Orationes Ex recensione Ioanmos GeorgiiGraevii Cum ejusdem animadversionibus, Et notis integris Francisci Hottomanni, Dionysii Lambini, Fulvii Ursini, Paulii Manutii ac selectis aliorum

      P. & I. Bleau Amsterdam: P. & I. Bleau, 1695. Vellum. Six volumes (in seven), 8vo., pp. [ff 1] (engraved title) + [xxii] + 706 + [2]-114 + [2]-174; [2]-596 + [2]-112 + [151] (indexes); [ff 1] + 744 + [2]-142; [ff 1] +624 + [2]-170 + [127]; [ff 1] + 958 + blank + [2]-204; [ff 1] + 784; 785-1022 + blank + [2]-234 + [162] + [1] (addenda); all contemporary vellum somewhat soiled and darkened, especially at spines (some with abrasions, one with minor loss); ex-library tickets to spines; library stamps to top edges; library ink stamp to front pastedowns; library stamps or markings to title leaf recto and verso; card pockets at rear pastedowns; browning to some leaves throughout; else a clean and complete ex-library set. 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." Very Good.

        Habit de Masque

      Augsburg: Published in Augsburg by Jeremias Wolff., circa 1695. Engraving with superb early colour and rich gold highlights. Printed on watermarked laid paper. In excellent condition. Image size: 9 ½ x 6 5/8 inches. 10 3/8 x 6 5/8 inches. 14 1/8 x 8 ¾ inches. Archivally framed. 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.

        Traite de mecanique, ou l'on explique tout ce qui est necessaire dans la pratique des arts, et les proprietes des corps pesants lesquelles ont un plus grand usage dans la physique.Paris: L'Imprimerie Royale, 1695.

      First edition of La Hire's important manual of mechanics. "Associated with the leading scientists of the age, La Hire was, for nearly half a century, one of the principal animators of scientific life in France... His diverse observations in physics, meteorology and the natural sciences simply attest to the high level of is intellectual curiosity... His early works in projective, analytic and applied geometry place him among the best of the followers of Desargues and Descartes. Finally, his diverse knowledge and artistic, technical and scientific experience were factors in the growth of technological thought, the advance of practical mechanics and the perfecting of graphic techniques... The important <i>Traité de mécanique</i> that La Hire published in 1695 represents a synthesis of his diverse theoretical and practical preoccupations. Although passed over by the majority of the historians of mechanics, this work marks a significant step toward the elaboration of a modern manual of practical mechanics, suitable for engineers of various disciplines. La Hire thus partially answered the wish expressed by Colbert in 1675 of seeing the Academy produce an exact description of all the machines useful in the arts and trades... La Hire furnished useful descriptions and put forth the suggestion (already made in his <i>Traité des épicycloides</i>) following Desargues, of adopting an epicycloidal profile for gear wheels". (DSB VII: 576-9). <br/><br/> "Timoshenko notes that La Hire was responsible for the first application of statics to the solution of arch problems. In the present work we find the funicular polygon used for the first time in arch analysis. His analysis revealed 'that under the assumption of perfect smoothness at the wedge surfaces, stability of a semicircular arch cannot exist', but that the cement holding the wedges will contribute to the stability, thereby removing the necessity of complying rigorously with the established ratio for P1:P2:P3" (Bibliotheca Mechanica p. 192). <br/><br/> Poggendorff 477; Dugas, Mechanics in the seventeenth century, 1958, p. 546; Timoshenko, History of Strength of Materials, 1953, pp. 63-4.. 12mo (161 x 98 mm), pp [xii], 492. Woodcut head- and tail-pieces, numerous diagrams and illustrations in text. Contemporary calf, spine gilt, upper capital slightly chipped, old inscription to title page and manuscript index pasted onto rear board, a fine unrestored copy

        Pas Kaart van de Golff van Mexico Sea chart from the Zee-Fakkel

      Amsterdam: Johannes Van Keulen, 1695. JOHANN VAN KEULEN&#39;S SPECTACULAR SEA CHARTS OF THE GULF COAST AND THE WORLD Copperplate engraving Johannes van Keulen was the founding member of a family of mapmakers that created a veritable cartographic dynasty in 17th-century Amsterdam, becoming the chief publisher of sea atlases and nautical works during the era. This finely engraved and important chart of the Gulf of Mexico was published in van Keulen&#39;s monumental sea atlas, the Zee-Fakkel, considered by many to be the culmination of the development of Dutch pilot books. The chart is beautifully engraved with a splendid baroque cartouche that includes cherubs with a falcon, a snake and seafaring utensils. The Zee-Fakkel was published in five parts from 1684 to 1689. Part IV of the atlas was devoted to America, and in its separately published form, was the first sea atlas specifically devoted to the New World. It contained some of the most important 17th-century sea charts of American areas, including this rare chart, a re-issue of the 1684 edition, with significantly more detail added - particularly place names. Oriented with West at the top, as was common in Dutch sea charts of the time, it depicts the entire Gulf coast, and includes the region from present day Pensacola, Florida to Cozumel Island off the Yucatan peninsula. Rhumb lines are depicted throughout. An inset in the lower left shows the area around present day Vera Cruz. The Zee-Fakkel was the largest and most complete sea atlas to be published to date. As with preceding Dutch atlases of the type, it was designed for the international market, for the publication of hydrographic knowledge throughout the 17th century was predominantly a Dutch affair, under the undisputed leadership of Amsterdam. The Zee-Fakkel marked the climax of this development, and the house of van Keulen, active without a break from 1678 to 1885, was the largest unofficial hydrographic office in the world..

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

      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", [circa 1695]. Copper-engraved map by John Harris, with original outline colour. Paper toned and margins somewhat soiled otherwise in very good condition. 20 3/4 x 24 1/2 inches. 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&#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. 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.

        Camden&#39;s Britannia, Newly Translated into English: With Large Additions And Improvements

      London: F. Collins. for A.Swalle & A. & F. Churchil, 1695. leather_bound. Contemporary panelled calf decorated in blind, rebacked with original red leather spine label laid-down. Near fine./No Dust Jacket. 1116, (18), (26) pages.[*1, A2, a-g2, B-Fff4, Ggg4,*Ggg2, Hhh4, *Hhh2, Iii-Mmm4,& Nnn-Nnnn2, a-l2]. Frontispiece, fifty double-paged maps by Robert Morden, nine plates of maps, and a host of engravings in the text -- most notable, that of Stonehenge, Rolle-rich stones of Oxfordshire; and some Roman tablets, altars and inscriptions. "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 write a history, Camden described in detail the Great Britain of the present, and attempted to delineate how the past could be discerned in the existing landscape. He thus produced the first coherent picture of Roman Britain. His circle of friends and acquaintances included Lord Burghley, Fulke Greville, Philip Sydney, Edmund Spencer, and Ben Jonson, the latter was Camden&#39;s student at Westminster, and who dedicated an early edition of "Every Man in His Humor" to him. SKELTON 117, WING C-359. Handwritten bookplate of Thomas Ansell, dated 1762, text and maps largely bright and clean, minor margin worming leaves Ffff-Mmmm, old repair upper corner of leaf Bb, Kent plate inverted, but overall a fresh and unsophisticated copy.

        West Indische Paskaert

      Amsterdam, 1695. A MAP OF GREAT IMPORTANCE FOR THE WESTERN NAVIGATION TO BRAZIL Copper-plate engraving with original hand color: 331/4" x 393/4" References: G. Schilder, Monumenta Cartographica Neerlandica (Aphen a/d Rijn, 1996), 4: 114, 63.4; Philip D. Burden, The Mapping of North America: A List of Printed Maps 1511-1670 (Rickmansworth, 1996), 288-291. This map is Johannes Loots&#39;s extraordinarily rare printing of Willem Blaeu&#39;s second West Indische Paskaert, originally published in 1630. Blaeu&#39;s legendary map of the Atlantic Ocean, of which no more than two examples are known, was the first sea chart relating to North America to use Mercator&#39;s projection. The copperplate for the map passed through the hands of Jacob Robijn, who probably acquired it at one of the sales of the Blaeu&#39;s stock in 1674, two years after the Blaeu firm had been decimated by the Great Fire in Amsterdam. From Robijn the plate passed largely unaltered (other than the cartouches) to Pieter Goos and lastly to Loots. While this map, with its network of rhumb lines indicating bearings, bears a close resemblance to previous sea charts, it was based on an entirely different geometric projection, developed by Mercator. Prior to this major innovation, medieval and Renaissance sea charts had not been drawn on any projection. They lacked indications of latitude or longitude as well as consistent orientation. While such portolan charts were highly effective in allowing mariners to chart a course from one port to another - directions, indicated by intricate networks of rhumb lines, tended to be remarkably accurate - distances were shown approximately at best. Moreover, these earlier sea charts did not take into account the curvature of the earth, and even bearings were subject to significant distortion once the distances involved extended to the width of the Atlantic Ocean. Blaeu&#39;s groundbreaking West Indische Paskaert was the first to rectify that situation by employing Mercator&#39;s projection: a revolutionary solution to a navigational quandary that had existed since the discovery of the New World. Blaeu&#39;s sea chart was probably intended for the sole use of the Dutch West India Company, and the map shows the area chartered to the Company in 1621. The map extends from Ireland to Newfoundland in the north and to the Cape of Good Hope and Rio de la Plata in the south, and from the Gulf of Mexico in the west to Greece in the east. Even by the latter part of the seventeenth century, this map remained enormously important for Western navigation to Brazil, because it was only in 1685 that the first charts of the Brazilian coast were published by Robijn. The interior of North and South America is richly decorated with the coats of arms of the ruling countries: Portugal, Spain, France, the Netherlands and Germany.. Book.

      Uncoloured engraved map of the Azores. Amsterdam: Joannes Loots ca. 1695. 40,5 x 52 cm. Margins with repairs and a few tears.. As mathematical and nautical instrument maker, Loots also published manuals on navigation. For a time he was in partnership with an engraver, A de Winter, and an author of text books on charts, Claes de Vries, who had ambitions to publish a very large sea atlas of some 200 charts but this was never completed on the scale contemplated. Some of their charts were sold to Gerard van Keulen and others were used in a sea atlas published in 1697. Charts by Loots also appear in a number of other pilot books and sea atlases of the time

      Paul Marret Amsterdam: Paul Marret, 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)

        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 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
