Gage, Thomas (c1597-1656)
Paul Marret, Amsterdam, 1695. 2 volumes. [24]+200+[1]-178 pages with frontispiece, five folding plates and three folding maps. [14]+318 pages with frontispiece, seven folding plates and one folding map. Duodecimo. 6" x 3 3/4") bound in original leather with five raised spine bands in black and red spine labels in gilt lettering. Later edition in French (first published in Paris, 1676; the work first published in English in London, 1648) Thomas Gage was an English Dominican friar, best known for his travel writing on New Spain and Central America during a sojourn there of over a decade. He closely observes colonial society and culture. On his return to England in 1637 he converted to Anglicanism. The route led through Mexico, where Gage decided to remain and for a time taught Latin in the convent school. By Gage's own account, in Mexico City he heard from a friar who had run away from his duties in the Philippines that the Dominican superiors there were cruel and harsh and the friars corrupt and worldly. In order to escape onward posting to the Philippines, Gage and three other friars escaped from Mexico for Guatemala. Here he was accepted by the Dominicans as a useful addition to their manpower. He spent two or three years in the priory in Santiago de los Caballeros, where he seems to have liked the opportunity for study but began to have religious doubts and was led to ask to return to England. The Dominican authorities refused, on the grounds that missionaries had to remain in the Americas for ten years. Further embittered, he decided to accompany friar Francisco Moran in … [Click Below for Full Description]

First edition. 1695 1st English ed Thesaurus Geographicus ATLAS Illustrated Maps Voyages Moll In the mid-16th-century, Abraham Ortelius produced the first Modern atlas known as the ‘Theatrum Orbis Terrarum’. It was immensely popular throughout Europe and was reissued in many languages for centuries.

This book includes extensive descriptions of animals, as well as travel guides for various towns, and Native American tribes in the New World. In addition to maps, other illustrations feature depictions of fortifications, compasses, navigational phenomena, rivers, and thorough descriptions of Great Britain.

O. O., 5. VII. 1695. 3 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 4to. Als Präsident des Hofkriegsrats, wohl an Oberstkanzler Franz Ulrich Kinsky in Böhmen wegen der Formulierung der Instruktion für einen mit dem Kommando in Ungarn zu betrauenden General: "Ich [.] werde nicht Ermanglen also gleich dem Haksthausen [d. i. der dänische General Johan Dietrich Haxthausen] die Instruction Zue zu schiken, die in dem Jurament ausgestrichene worde Anlangent, ist, wen Mann Simpliciter sezet, d[a]z Commando Zu ungeren, Meines erachtens die Sachen gar zu weid extendiert, weil ich mihr awer einbilde, d[a]z der d[a]z word Armée darummen Nicht darin hawen will, weil er auch uwer die festungen zu Commandiren Verlanget, welches, wenn es darbei verbleibt, d[a]z er alles durch den Caprara [d. i. der kaiserliche Offizier Albrecht Graf von Caprara] befelhen solle, leztlich auch kein So großses bedenken had: So kunte villeicht gesezt werden, d[a]z Commando in ungeren In Militaribus [.]". - Prinz Eugen von Savoyen befehligte 1697 als Oberbefehlshaber im Großen Türkenkrieg den entscheidenden habsburgischen Gegenstoß bei Zenta an der Theiß in Ungarn. Dieser Sieg führte schließlich zum Frieden von Karlowitz, der den Krieg 1699 beendete. - Von größter Seltenheit.

Original binding with stronger signs of rubbing to rear board. Pastedown paper loosened. Interior and frontispiece very good. Needs attention from bookbinder. Jean-Baptiste Colbert (29 August 1619 – 6 September 1683) was a French politician who served as the Minister of Finances of France from 1665 to 1683 under the rule of King Louis XIV. His relentless hard work and thrift made him an esteemed minister. He achieved a reputation for his work of improving the state of French manufacturing and bringing the economy back from the brink of bankruptcy. Historians note that, despite Colbert's efforts, France actually became increasingly impoverished because of the King's excessive spending on wars. Colbert worked to create a favourable balance of trade and increase France's colonial holdings. Colbert's market reforms included the foundation of the Manufacture royale de glaces de miroirs in 1665 to supplant the importation of Venetian glass (forbidden in 1672, as soon as the French glass manufacturing industry was on sound footing) and to encourage the technical expertise of Flemish cloth manufacturing in France.

GREGORY, David.
Sheldonian Theatre, Oxford, 1695. First edition of this rare work, famous today for its suggestion that an achromatic compound lens might be formed by combining simples lenses of different media. The use of ‘achromatic doublets’ was a crucial step in the further development of telescopes and microscopes.From Marischal College, Aberdeen, David Gregory (1659-1708) entered Edinburgh University, graduating M.A. on 28 November 1683. A month prior to his graduation he was elected to the Chair of Mathematics, at one time occupied by his uncle, the great mathematician James Gregory, whose Optica promota (1663) had described a reflecting telescope which used parabolic mirrors. As a professor, David Gregory was the first to lecture publicly on the Newtonian philosophy. His lecture notes show that they covered a broad range of subjects including geodesy, optics, dynamics, and various branches of mathematics. Increasingly under attack by his fellow professors at Edinburgh for his radical political views, in 1691 he went to London where he was introduced to Newton and recommended to John Flamsteed, the first astronomer royal. In that same year, Edward Barnard retired from the Savilian professorship of Astronomy at Oxford; backed by Newton’s recommendation of him as ‘very well skilled in Analysis & Geometry both new & old . understands Astronomy very well . & is respected the greatest Mathematician in Scotland’, and with Flamsteed’s support, Gregory was elected to the chair in face of strong opposition from Edmond Halley. As Gregory tells us in the preface, the present work is the printe … [Click Below for Full Description]

Fifty double page engraved maps, many by Morden and nine pages of coins and other antiquities, including Stonehenge as required. Contemporary panelled calf, spine with six raised bands and seven compartment. Title in gilt on a red label to second compartment. Covers have wear and stripping. Spine is worn at head and foot with loss. Cracking to hinges. An engraving of Paxton's Crystal Palace in Hyde Park has been stuck onto the front pastedown. The contents are in near fine condition with only one tear (to Xx3) which affects the edge of one illustration but with no loss to the text. This is a very fresh and clean text block. The only map with any damage is a small tear to one of the folds of the map of Norfolk. This is, perhaps, to be expected as the previous owners of this copy were the Bulwer-Long family from Heydon Hall, Norfolk who are kinsmen of the Bulwer Lyttons. The top of the title page has the inscription "Lt Colonel Bulwer from [illegible]". Aside from the condition of the binding, which can be repaired and restored, this is a lovely copy of one of the central works of early-modern British history and with an excellent provenance.

Pagination: [40], 407, [1], [12] pp. Frontispiece engraved portrait of Locke by Sylvester Brounower and P. Vanderbanck; faint dampstain or rippling to bottom margin. Modern blue cloth over marbled boards, red morocco title-label, I1, large tear repaired, old owner's inscription penned over on top of title page [J.B.S.]. Very good. THIRD EDITION; first printed in 1689. Jean Yolton notes that N. Petter Nidditch estimates this edition to be printed in 800 copies. John Locke (1632-1704), philosopher and fellow of the Royal Society, was the secretary and close associate of Ashby, the first Earl of Shaftsbury and Lord Chancellor. This "Essay" established him as the leading philosopher of his day, and together with letters upon religious toleration, provided the basis for Whig political thought for the next century and paved the way for the later philosophies of Bentham and the radicals. // Considered the father of English empiricism, Locke "was the first to take up the challenge of Bacon and to attempt to estimate critically the certainty and the adequacy of human knowledge when confronted with God and the universe. In the past, similar enquiries had been vitiated by the human propensity to extend them beyond the range of human understanding, and to invent causes for what it cannot explain. Therefore, Locke's first task was to ascertain 'the original certainty and extent of human knowledge' and, ex … [Click Below for Full Description]

Petis De La Croix, Francois, the younger.
Pierre Herissant, Paris, 1695. [39], 411 pp, [4], contemporary mottled calf, slightly rubbed with scuffs on upper cover & spine, gilt title on decorated raised spine, several woodcut head- and tailpieces, title page repaired, lacking frontispiece & small part of title label, red outer edges, some browning. This seems to be an enlarged version of a work issued the same year by Herrisant under the title Etat Present des nations & des eglises grecque, armenienne & maronite. The latter is cited in the catalogue of the Bibliotheque Nationale with only 266 pages, and is probably the same work which is described in Blackmer 1297 with the name of the "Sieur De La Croix" on the title, and the date M.DC.CXV, which has been considered a misprint for 1695. The British Library catalogue cites an edition of the Etat present with the date "1715", but this may well be the same edition as the Blackmer and BN editions, considering the nature of the date in Roman numerals. Several members of the family of Petits de la Croix were for many years active orientalists and interpreters in the Levant. The Sieur de la Croix, secretary of the French embassy at Constantinople for many years during the ambassadorship of Nointel, is probably also a member of this family, but we have been unable to confirm this. In some cases the name refers to Petits de la Croix the younger, but apparently not always. BL. Not in GL. Not in Blackmer but see 1297. BN. See Legrand 17th c. V, 251.

BOETHIUS.
London: printed by J.D. for Awnsham and John Churchill; and Francis Hildyard bookseller in York,, 1695. In five books. Made English and illustrated with notes, by the Right Honourable Richard Lord Viscount Preston. Octavo (185 x 114 mm). Contemporary panelled calf, later label to spine lettered in gilt, panels roll-tooled in blind with blind cornerpieces, red speckled edges. Engraved portrait frontispiece. Bookplate of Robert J. Hayhurst with his pencilled notes on the pastedown and front free endpaper, contemporary ownership signature to title page, ink note on first page of preface. Spine and covers lightly rubbed and marked, front joint just starting to crack but still firm, hinge of frontispiece split. Overall a very good copy. First edition of this translation, which includes "The Life of Boetius" and "The Testimonies of several writers concerning Boethius translated" in the preliminaries. The translator, Richard Graham, first Viscount Preston (1648–1695), clearly identified closely with Boethius, having himself been sentenced to death for his Jacobite activities. He saved himself from the scaffold in 1691 (and earned himself opprobrium) by testifying against his accomplices. The translation was his occupation during his last years in retirement at Nunnington Hall in Yorkshire. The preface contains a number of references to his situation, including the complaint that his judges had been more lenient than his friends, who despised him for giving way under trials that they had never undergone.

ARISTOPHANES
Londini [i.e. London]: Impensis Rob. Clavel, 1695. [24], 463pp, [33]. Contemporary panelled calf. Heavy rubbing to extremities, joints split, upper board separating. Browning to blank endpapers, FEP working loose, occasional light creasing. A late seventeenth-century parallel Greek and Latin text of two comedies, Plutus and Nubes, by Athenian playwright Aristophanes (c.446-c.386 BCE). The first edition of Bishop of Norwich, John Leng's (1665-1727) Latin translation, and apparently the first appearance printed in England of both texts together. The latter work, Nubes, or The Clouds, has a high-standing within literary scholarship, being considered the first extant 'comedy of ideas'. The work lampoons the intellectual fashions of classical Athens and remains notorious for its caricature of Socrates, depicting him as a fraud and a sophist; indeed Plato refers to the play in his Apology as contributing to the philosopher's eventual trial and execution. Plutus, a lesser known work, satirises contemporary Athenian politics and morality through the personification of the eponymous god of wealth, raising issues regarding the fair distribution of riches and the state of slavery. Wing A3684. Dibdin I, 309.. First edition. 8vo.

Bibl. danica III, sp. 33. Thesaurus 593. Fiske 459. Första upplagan av Petrejus arbete. En dansk översättning utkom 1706 och en tysk 1699. Nicolaus Petrejus, eller Niels Pedersen, var dansk prästman och skrev verket på 1570-talet. Han hävdade att cimbrerna och goterna härstammade från Gotland, d.v.s. Danmark, och verket mottogs mycket väl i Danmark medan svenska fornforskare som Verelius och Hadorph förkastade hans enligt Warmholtz ogrundade satser. Denna tryckta del av Petrejus arbete lär, också enligt Warmholtz, endast vara en mindre del av hans bok.

Le premier tome est consacré aux mœurs épulaires des Anciens, tant grecs et romains que juifs, égyptiens, perses et arabes. Il cite près de cinq cents auteurs qu'il a étudiés, abordant la nutrition, l'hygiène, la gastronomie, les vins, les banquets et les fêtes. Il fait également œuvre d'ethnographie dans le second tome qui porte sur les rites sacrificiels de l'ensemble des peuples connus, d'une Antiquité disparue aux rivages du Nouveau Monde (Dorbon, Bibliotheca esoterica, n° 4700). Très bel exemplaire, relié en vélin hollandais, décoré sur les plats de l'emblème de la ville de La Haye ; bien conservé et sans rousseurs.

Les vies des saints se teintent d’un merveilleux hérité des traditions orales ou des cycles Arthuréins. Les cantiques en breton et en français reprennent d’anciennes mélodies traditionnelles et les pardons s’émaillent de miracles aussi nombreux que spectacul … [Click Below for Full Description]
