La Fontaine, Jean de:
Amsterdam, Henry Desbordes, 1695.. 2 Bde in 1 Band. 8°. 2 gest. Frontispiece und 58 Kupferstiche von Romaine de Hooge. Pergamentband der Zeit.. Brunet III, 759. - Sander 1038. - Mehrfach erschienene Ausgabe mit den halbseitigen Kupferstichen von Romaine de Hooghe, "der holländische Meister gilt als der Vorläufer der franz. Illustrations-Kunst des 18. Jahrhunderts. Seine im Text gedruckten halbseitigen Kupfer lassen die später so allgemein beliebt gewordenen illustrative Kopfvignette vorausahnen. Im Stil seiner Darstellung hat Romaine de Hooghe freilich nicht viel Französisches. Es fehlt ihm häufig an Eleganz und er hat eine ausgesprochene Vorliebe für das Groteske, das dem Franzosen in der Regel wenig liegt." (Fürstenberg, S. 70). - Durchgehend etwas gebräunt. Der Einbandrücken restauriert. (Sprache: Französisch / Francais / French)

[Slavery; Massachusetts]
Barnstable, Massachusetts:. 1695 -6.. Very good condition. A remarkable early Old Colony (Massachusetts) legal document which records the sentencing to bond slavery of three Native Americans, Ralph Sands, and John & Robin Sopitt, to English settlers, for terms of two years each (another slavery record is on the verso). These Native Americans were charged with "takeing of a Chest with goods cast on shoar on Sandwich Beach belonging to Nathaniel Orvis who was drowned...". They appeared before Barnabas Lothrop, John Thacher, and John Gorham, justices of Barnstable County, were convicted and fined, and being unable to pay their fines, were ordered to serve terms of two full years to the individuals who "paid down" the amounts owed. & & The individuals who paid these amounts are named as Joseph (Housedy or Halsey?) who paid the fine and obtained Robin Sopitt; Joseph Bartlett who paid the fine and obtained John Sopitt, and Edmond Freeman and Ebenezer (Ebinge?) who jointly paid the fine and obtained Ralph Sands. Written in another hand below this record, is "a [true] coppy --- Barnabas Lothrop Justis of peiz 13th of fe---ary 1696". Below this another note in pencil, "Slavery in 1695-6 Kg. Wm 3rd". This amounted to imposed enslavement of Native Americans, a practice rarely recognized in the official version of the colonial history of the North. In fact, slavery was legal in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, and Governor John Winthrop helped craft the laws known as the "Massachusetts Body of Liberties" (1641), which made this enslavement possible.

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.

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.

ONT>In Three Volumes, 1695 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce and earlyset accounting the history of the the Edict of Nantes, issued by Henry IV of France, and the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes. Written in French. In the Edict, Henry aimed primarily to promote civil unity. The Edict separated civil from religious unity, treated some Protestants for the first time as more than mere schismatics and heretics, and opened a path for secularism and tolerance. In offering general freedom of conscience to individuals, the Edict offered many specific concessions to the Protestants, such as amnesty and the reinstatement of their civil rights, including the right to work in any field or for the State and to bring grievances directly to the king. It marks the end of the religious wars that had afflicted France during the second half of the 16th century. Volume one features a beautifully engraved plate to the endpaper. With particular focuson theRevocation of the Edict of Nantes, which was issued by Louis XIV of France in October 1685. By the Edict of Fontainebleau, Louis XIV revoked the Edict of Nantes and ordered the destruction of Huguenot churches, as well as the closing of Protestant schools. This policy made official the persecution already enforced since the dragonnades created in 1681 by the king in order to intimidate Huguenots into converting to Catholicism. Complete in three volumes. Condition: In original calf bindings with gilt designs to the spines. Externally, a trifle rubbed with heavy wear to extremities.

EARLY ISSUE OF SIR RICHARD BLACKMORE’S EPIC POEM OF THE ARTHURIAN LEGEND. Blackmore was the personal physician to both William III and to Queen Anne, but these important duties did not stop him from being a prolific and popular writer. The author says this work, arguably his best, was written “for the greatest part in coffee-houses” during what free time and precious moments of leisure his career permitted him. The poem begins with Arthur returning to England to claim his throne after the Saxon overthrow of Uther. It tells of Lucifer’s attempt to defeat Arthur’s purpose and serves like an analysis of the development of Christianity in Northern Europe. The final telling of the combat between Tollo and Arthur for the hand of Ethelina, and thus the control of the Kingdom is highly climactic. The work found a great admirer in Dr. Johnson who replied to John De … [Click Below for Full Description]

GREGORY, David.
Oxford: Sheldonian Theatre, 1695. First edition. 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 presen … [Click Below for Full Description]

CORONELLI, Vincenzo Maria (1650-1718)
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.

Jansson, Jan
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.

CARY (John):
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 workhous … [Click Below for Full Description]
