      London: Daniel Dring, 1696 A good copy of an extremely scarce english translation of two early voyage accounts with 1 (of 2) folding maps, and 5 plates.' A New Voyage to the E Indies' by Pouchot de Chantassin was first published in Paris in 1692.'The Voyages of the Sieur Le Maire, to the Canary-Islands, Cape Verde, Senegal, and Gambia' by Joseph-Jacques Le Maire, was first published in 1695. Le Maire's work is particularly interesting because of information it provides on W Africa in the 1600's, including the extent of European interaction and the slave trade.

        De synagoga vetere libri tres: quibus tum de nominibus, structurâ, origine, præfectis, ministris, & sacris synagogarum, agitur; tum præcipue, formam regiminis & ministerii earum in ecclesiam christianam translatam esse, demonstratur: cum prolegomenis. 2 vols bound in one (Complete)

      Franequerae (Franeker): Johannis Gyzelaar, 1696. Second edition. Hardcover. g- to vg. Octavo (8 1/4 x 6 1/2"). Vol. 1: [32], 256, 253-608 p.; Vol. 2: [8], [609]-1138, [38]pp. Contemporary full vellum with handwritten title to spine. Identical additional engraved title by Joseph Mulder (1658-1742), a Dutch Golden Age printmaker and engraver, for each of the two parts. Vol. 2 has title: Campegii Vitringa De synagoga vetere liber tertius : quo rectores & ministri synagogarum conferuntur cum præpositis & diaconis ecclesiæ Christianæ. Pars II. Both title pages in red and black lettering. Title vignettes. Decorative woodcut head-, tailpieces and initials. Originally published in 1685, this work is the second edition of Vitringa's dissertation on the synagogue and the development of the early Church. The term "synagogue" (like the word church) signifies first the congregation, then also the building where the congregation meet for public worship. As the Christian Church rests historically on the Jewish Church, so Christian worship and the congregational organization rest on that of the synagogue, and cannot be well understood without it. Vitringa's work explains that the Christian Church was framed on the model, not of the temple, but of the synagogue, just as its Sacraments arose out of Jewish ordinances which had no connection with the temple services. Includes two extensive indexes at rear (Vol. 2), as well as an Addenda and and emendanda in Vol. 2, p. [36]-[38] (last sequence).Binding age-toned and partly darkened. Handwritten title partly faded on spine. Ex-library bookplate on inside of front cover, and stamp on first title page. Water-staining to both endpapers and fly leaves, as well as at verso of first additional engraved title and at inner margin of first title page. Front hinge starting. Very first and very last pages slightly rippled due to damp exposure. Sporadic clear water-staining along edges of very first and very last pages (not affecting lettering). Text in Latin with some Hebrew. Binding in overall good- to good, interior in good- to very good condition. About the author: Campegius Vitringa (1659-1722) was a Dutch Protestant theologian and Hebraist. A follower of Johannes Cocceius,Vitringa was a supporter of prophetic theology. He was educated at the universities of Franeker and Leiden, and became professor of Oriental languages at the former in 1681. When locating prophetic outcomes, he would associate events to the near rather than the far-off future, placing a distinct focus on the period of the Maccabees (2nd Century BC). Like Joseph Mede (1586-1638), Vitringa believed wholeheartedly that the Millennium was yet to come, but did not expect any immediate changes. He relegated the end of the time to a remote future and strongly emphasized the concept of New Jerusalem (From Wikipedia).

        Supplementum defectus geometria Cartesianae circa inventionem locorum" [Joh. Bernoulli, pp. 264-269] WITH [Two other papers] WITH Notatiuncula ad acta decemb. 1695 [Leibniz, pp. 45-47] in Acta Eruditorum Anno M DC XCVI, 1696

      Grosse & Gleditsch, Leipzig - FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING OF JOHANN BERNOULLI'S FAMOUS BRACHISTOCHRONE PROBLEM (sometimes called the Brachistochrone challenge). The Brachistochrone (Greek for 'shortest' and 'time) problem itself was one of the earliest examples of a class of problem now known as the calculus of variations. By the 19th century, thanks to Lagrange among others, all fundamental laws of nature could be formulated in terms of the calculus of variations - a kind of universal language of physics. Bernoulli issued his mathematical challenge in the context of the argument between Newton and Leibniz over who first invented the calculus, the mathematical study of change. While Newton, save for a small notice, made something of a secret of his discovery of fluxions, Leibniz had published his calculus in 1684. By 1695, he and his student, Johann Bernoulli, had developed the calculus into a magnificent tool for solving an array of problems. Bernoulli and Leibniz, however, were curious about how much Newton really knew. Together they devised a test, the Brachistochrone problem, confident that only a mathematician who knew the calculus could solve it. Following the custom of the time, they published it. The problem read as follows: "Let two points A and B be given in a vertical plane. To find the curve that a point M, moving on a path AMB , must follow such that, starting from A, it reaches B in the shortest time under its own gravity" (ibid). Johann added that this curve is not a straight line, but a curve well known to geometers. Wanting to lure Newton, Bernoulli introduced his challenge as follows: "I, Johann Bernoulli, address the most brilliant mathematicians in the world. Nothing is more attractive to intelligent people than an honest, challenging problem, whose possible solution will bestow fame and remain as a lasting monument. Following the example set by Pascal, Fermat, etc., I hope to gain the gratitude of the whole scientific community by placing before the finest mathematicians of our time a problem which will test their methods and the strength of their intellect. If someone communicates to me the solution of the proposed problem, I shall publicly declare him worthy of praise" (Bernoulli, Acta 1696, p. 264). The solution to the Brachistochrone problem was a segment of a cycloid and it was solved by Leibniz, Newton (absent a proof), von Tschirnhaus, l'Hôpital and both Bernoullis. "Among the solutions, the two by the Bernoulli brothers were of particular importance. Johann had ingeniously reformulated the challenge as a problem belonging to optics, i.e., the bending of a light ray through a transparent nonuniform media, and applied Fermat's principle of least time. He thus demonstrated the fundamental parallel between geometric optics and point mechanics, which would lead to the work of W.R. Hamilton in the 1830's. The solution by Jacob also contains a general principle, namely, that a curve which constitutes a maximum or minimum as a whole must also possess this property in the infinitesimal - the fundamental principle of the calculus of variations" (DSB). Two of the solutions would be of significant import: one, Johann's own, because it would present the first example of the optical-mechanical analogy, and his brother Jakob's because it represented an important early step in the calculus of variations in that he realized that the problem itself was of a new type, the variable being a function (upon which, not incidentally, Lagrangian mechanics is based). ALSO PRESENT ARE OTHER PAPERS OF SIGNIFICANCE: Four by Jakob Bernoulli: "Observatiuncula ad ea quaenupero mense novembri de Dimensionibus Curvarum leguntur" WITH "Constructio Generalis omnium Curvarum transcendentium ope simplicioris Tractoriae et Logarithmicae", WITH "Problema Beaunianum universalius conceptum", WITH "Complanatio Superficierum Conoidicarum et Sphaeroidicarum" AND two more by Johann Bernoulli "Demonstratio Analyticea et Syntetica fuae Constructionis Curvae Beaunianae" WITH [Attributes: First Edition]

        Utrecht wandkaart - Bernard de Roy, 1743.

      NIEUWE KAART VANDEN LANDE VAN UTRECHTKopergravure, samengesteld uit meerdere bladen, vervaardigd door Bernard de Roy (/de Roij) in 1696, 2e staat uitgegeven door Covens en Mortier in 1743. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (prent) 121 x 184 cm.Dit is de bekendste kaart van de provincie Utrecht en na uitgifte van deze gedetailleerdere 2e staat, ongeveer een eeuw het meest gezaghebbende kaartwerk over de provincie. Alle latere kaarten zouden er op teruggrijpen.Ter omkadering van de kaart werden gravures gemaakt met wapens van Holland, stad en provincie Utrecht, magistraatspersonen en gezichten van Montfoort, Wijk bij Duursteerde, Utrecht, Rhenen en Amersfoort. Deze op losse bladen gedrukte versieringen zitten niet bij dit exemplaar.De Roy?s grootschalige kaart is er een in een reeks van wandkaarten, die in de 17de-eeuw van vele delen van ons land zijn verschenen. Bij gebrek aan een uniforme grootschalige kaart van het gehele grondgebied van de Republiek, vormden deze op verschillende schalen ontworpen en in kwaliteit en uitvoering uiteenlopende kaartwerken, toen de hoofdbron van de geografische kennis van de afzonderlijke gewesten.De kaart van Den Lande van Utrecht werd behalve om haar geografische informatie ook uit decoratieve en representatieve overwegingen gebruikt en vormde een waardige en passende versiering, zowel voor de vergaderzalen van de bestuurscolleges als voor de huizen van welgestelde particulieren. Helaas betekende deze bestemming meestal haar vrijwel zekere ondergang. Blootgesteld aan licht, stof, vocht, roet, temperatuurswisselingen, veelvuldige aanraking en andere ongunstige invloeden, takelden de op linnen of hout gemonteerde exemplaren in de loop der tijden sterk af en eindigden meestal roemloos hun bestaan. Dit exemplaar heeft haar ?bestemming? als wandkaart in eerste instantie niet bereikt, maar is in atlasvorm samengebonden geconserveerd gebleven en pas in de 20e-eeuw gemonteerd.Literatuur: facsimile met introductie door A.H. Sijmons (1973).Prijs: ? 7.500,-.

        The Athenian Gazette: or Causistical Mercury, Resolving All the Most Nice and Curious Questions Proposed by the Ingenious

      London: John Dunton, 1696. Volumes I-XIX (of XX) with volume titles. No. 25 in vol. XVII lacking. Folio. Contemporary Cambridge calf. Rebacked, heavy foxing and toning, some pages cropped. Volumes I-XIX (of XX) with volume titles. No. 25 in vol. XVII lacking. Folio. Swift's First Appearance in Print. A long run of The Athenian Gazette, containing Jonathan Swift's first appearance in print. His "Ode to the Anthenian Society" with a prefatory letter of 14 February 1791 from Moor Park appears on pages 1-6 of the supplement to the fifth volume. Both the poem and letter are signed in print, unusual for Swift who rarely acknowledged his works. Swift addresses his poem to the Athenian Society, an anonymous club of learned men, whose members are now known to have included the Gazette's publisher John Dunton, Samuel Wesley (father of John and Charles), and Richard Sault. The Gazette printed answers to questions sent in by its readers. "Through twelve diffuse stanzas, composed in nine days, Swift congratulates the nameless subjects of his adoration (actually a bookseller [John Dunton] and some hack assistants) upon their great part in reviving learning after the wars of 1688-91 ... while he is delighted by their skill in refining philosophy ... he reproves them for their compliments to women, which have turned the heads of the female sex" (Ehrenpreis, Swift I, p. 115). According to Dr. Johnson's apocryphal anecdote, this was the poem that lead Dryden to observe, "Cousin Swift, you will never be a poet." [Bound after:] [GILDON, Charles]. The History of the Athenian Society, for the Resolving All Nice and Curious Questions ... [iv], 36 pp., lacking frontispiece. London: James Dowley, [1692]. Heavy foxing, some headlines shaved.

Starting with the omnipotent Cardinal Richelieu, there are to be found e.g. Colbert, Corneille, Descartes, Molière and Racine, as well as Blaise Pascal.

        Two proposals, humbly offer'd to the Honourable House of Commons, now assembled in Parliament. I. That a duty be laid on malt, in the stead of the present duty on beer and ale; and likewise, that the several engagements that Revenue lies under, be transferr'd on that of malt. II. That a duty be laid on malt, and the present duty on beer and ale be continued. To which is annex'd an Accompt, what in all probability the frauds of brewers do amount to, and wherein such frauds are prejudicial to the King, to the Subject, and to the Trade itself: likewise by what means such grievances are most properly redress'd.

First edition: the Lauderdale copy.> Wing B.5742. Goldsmiths 3258. Kress 1940. Massie 1358. Burnaby gives eight reasons why a malt tax would be just, profitable, efficient and speedy. Thus his first reason was that, 'Such a tax will be less than usually taxes are, by reason every person will pay proportionable in the price of malt. The more universal any tax is, it is to be supposed . to be the more equal; and I presume, no person will deny that such a tax will prove so universal, that not any person will escape paying his proportion according to his consumption, ergo, no person can complain; who consumes little, will have but little to pay'.

        La France ruinée sous le règne de Louis XIV. Par qui & comment. Avec les moyens de la rétablir en peu de temps.

      Cologne [Hollande], Pierre Marteau 1696 - in-12, [214] pp. mal chiffrées 212 (il y a 2 ff. différents chiffrés 119-120) et un f. n.ch. de table des chapitres, basane brune mouchetée, dos à nerfs cloisonné et fleuronné, tranches mouchetées (reliure de l'époque). Traces de mouillures et d'humidité en fin de volume mais bon exemplaire. Deuxième sortie très rare sous ce titre pour l'année 1696, laquelle ne comporte normalement ni le frontispice ni la carte gravée par Nicolas de Fer que l'on a dans la première sortie, mais a en revanche une table des chapitres. Rappelons qu'il aurait existé une sortie de 1695, signalée par les contemporains, mais qu'aucun exemplaire n'est parvenu jusqu'à nous. En fait et sous un autre titre, il s'agit fondamentalement du même ouvrage que le "Testament politique de M. de Vauban" ou encore du "Détail de la France" (1695), dont une édition abrégée comporte d'ailleurs notre titre comme développement. Mais cette édition est infiniment moins courante que les deux autres versions, et elle ne comprend de toutes façons que le quart de la matière donnée dans le Détail. L'on sait l'importance capitale de ce texte dans le contexte économique difficile de la fin du règne de Louis XIV : sans écho aucun dans les milieux officiels dont il heurtait frontalement les intérêts (traitants, intendants, ministres), il connut cependant un succès de lecture prodigieux tant à la Cour qu'à la ville, et les éditions se multiplièrent. Cf. Barbier II, 503. Pierre de Boisguilbert et la naissance de l'économie politique (INED, 1966), I, p. 485.

St. Helena, Johanna, Bombay, the City of Muscatt, and its Inhabitants in Arabia Felix, Mocha, and other Maritine towns upon the Red-Sea, the Cape of good Hope, and the Island of Ascention.

      1696 - First edition. With two folding engraved plates & a folding table. 8vo. Contemporary calf, gilt, rebacked, armorial stamp to both boards; extremities slightly worn, a few minor stains to the boards, one plate with tear repaired. A few small marginal stains to the first dozen leaves, interior very clean and fresh otherwise. [xvi], 606pp. London, pr. for Jacob Tonson, From the library of the noted collector Philip Gosse, with his label to the front pastedown. In 1689, Ovington (1653-1731) sailed for India as chaplain on an East India Company ship. He landed at Bombay in May of that year but, despite staying for several months, decided against becoming the chaplain there (primarily due to the climate, which he thought unsuitable to Europeans). He then moved to Surat, which he found more agreeable and thus took up the chaplaincy; a position he kept for two and a half years. This work, which he no doubt conceived during his lengthy stay in Surat, presented new and highly valuable first-hand observations on the port city and other parts of western India. It also includes a detailed account of the city of Muscat: ?This part of Arabia, because of its pleasantness and fertility . has obtain'd the name Hyaman, which signifies Happy.? Present-day scholarship argues that this section (on the Arabian Peninsula), along with the section on the Great Mogul and his court, are ?not based on firsthand observations? (Lach & Van Kley, vol.III, p.579) and are therefore possibly unreliable descriptions gleaned from other texts. Appended are four treatises from other sources: an account of the succession crisis in Golconda, a description of Arkan and Pegu, a list of Indian coins, and a treatise on silkworms.

Dessignées par les meilleurs ingénieurs ; partiulièrement celles qui sont sous la domination de la France, dont les plans ont esté levez par Monsieur de Vauban, Lieutenant général, & Premier Ingénieur des armées de Sa Majesté, & aussi la description de tous les instrumens servans à la fortification, à l'attaque & deffense des places, ensemble ceux qui servent pour l'artillerie, & la manière de dresser un camp devant une ville assiégée. Le tout recüeilli par les soins du Sr de Fer, géographe du Roy. Pour l'usage de Monseigneur le Duc de Bourgogne. Première [] partie.

      Paris, chez l'auteur, dans l'Isle du Palais, 1695-1696, - Neuf parties en un vol. in-4 oblong (27 x 37 cm), 226 planches, veau fauve granité, dos à nerfs cloisonné et fleuronné, pièce de titre cerise, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque). Habiles restaurations aux coins et coiffes. L'Atlas des Forces de l'Europe réunit des plans de villes fortifiées européennes. Il parut sous la forme de huit livraisons entre 1690 et 1695. Son titre primitif, Introduction à la fortification, forme l'intitulé de la première livraison, dont le frontispice fut conservé comme deuxième titre pour les parties suivantes. L'appellation "Forces de l'Europe" n'apparut qu'en 1691 avec la deuxième livraison. Le titre de la première partie est inscrit sur une draperie ornée des armes de France et de putti symbolisant la Géométrie et la Fortification. En haut de ce frontispice est figurée une scène de bataille où des fantassins tirent sur des cavaliers, et en bas du frontispice est représentée une bataille navale. Le titre de la deuxième partie est inscrit dans un frontispice signé N. Guérard I. et Fecit. On y voit une armée en campement avec, au premier plan le grand Dauphin entouré des ingénieurs Fritach, Marolois, Stevin et P. Sardi qui lui présentent leurs plans. A ces derniers, ainsi qu'aux oeuvres de Dogen, Pagan et Errard, le Dauphin préfère un projet de Vauban qu'il montre à sa droite. On lit au bas de la planche: "On avertit que ce livre est la seconde partie de l'Introduction a la Fortification, dont la premiere a été donnée l'année derniere, et que le Sr de Fer en donnera tous les ans une partie composée de pareil nombre de plans qui se vendront comme celle-cy à Paris chez l'auteur, dans l'Isle du Palais [.]." La neuvième partie forme en fait un autre titre, complémentaire, mais pas forcément joint. De fait, et pour résumer, la collation de l'ouvrage est particulièrement complexe : I. Première partie : Introduction à la fortification dédiée à Monseigneur le Duc de Bourgogne. [4] ff. n. ch. (titre-frontispice gravé, titre général en noir et rouge, titre de relais, table des figures et plans des villes avec leurs fortifications contenuës dans les huit volumes des Forces de l'Europe), 18 planches et plans, dont 17 légendées d'un feuillet explicatif en regard. II. Seconde partie : titre, et 24 plans. III. Troisième partie : titre, et 24 plans, dont un en dépliant (siège de Namur). IV. Quatrième partie : titre et 20 planches. V. Cinquième partie : titre, et 23 planches (dont le plan de Québec). VI. Sixième partie : titre, et 24 planches (dont Tripoli). VII. Septième partie : titre, et 25 planches. VIII. Huitième partie : titre, et 26 planches. IX. Les Costes de France, sur l'Océan & sur la Mer Méditerranée, &c., avec leurs fortifications. Levées et gravées par ordre exprès du Roy pour l'usage de ses armées de mer, dans lequel on voit la description exacte de toutes les côtes de la France, &c. Où sont exactement marquées les routes qu'il faut tenir, les bancs de sables, rochers & brasses d'eau ; & généralement tout ce qui concerne la navigation. Le tout fait sur les observations et l'expérience des plus habiles ingénieurs & pilotes : [2] ff. de titre, 42 planches (dont deux surnuméraires : Isle de Wight ; plan de la bataille de Fleurus), réalisées par de Fer, mais n'appartenant pas à cette série.

        The Works of the Famous and Worthy Knight

      Galasgow - Robert Sanders, 1696 Book. VERY GOOD INDEED. Hardcover. The poetical works of Sir David Lindesay (c 1490- c1555). A scarce edition of this work in a pocket sized format. The entire text of this work is in blackletter. ESTC states that there are two contents leaves to the rear, this copy is lacking those and ends at page 264. Closely cut to page 25, with the catchword therefore illegible. The title page spells the author's name as Lindesay, although through time there have been many other spellings including Lindsay and Lyndsay. Sir David Lindsay was a Scottish poet and Lyon king of arms. The Lyon King of Arms was the highest heraldic office. His poetry reflects the spirit of the Renaissance, specifically as a makar. Of Lindsay's poems, he gained a great reputation for his writings. His longer poems represent the range of his literary talent. Lindsay's writings are regarded to be the first literary expression in Scotland of the Renaissance. Works to this volume include 'Of the Monarchie', 'Of the Papingo' and 'To The King's Grace'. Of The Papyngo is written in a familiar medieval manner. It is a tract full of admonition to the court and clergy. Lindsay is also famous for producing a Scottish roll of arms known as The Lindsay of the Mount Roll. This roll contains 400 Scottish coats of arms and forms the basis of the official Scots heraldic registry in use today. Condition: In a full morocco binding with ornate gilt stamping to the spine and to the boards. Externally, smart with light rubbing to the extremities and to the head and tail of spine. Priorcatalogue information on this work is pasted to the front pastedown and to therecto of front free endpaper. Prior owner's inscription to the verso of front endpaper. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are age toned. Occasional spots to pages. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..

      Rome de' Rossi -1702; 1684; n.d. circa 1713 1696 - 2 vol. bound together. Large folio (c. 49.5 x 36 cm). 18th-century Roman mottled brown calf richly tooled in gold to a rococo design with curling leaf tools, fan-shaped tools, flowers, palmettes and fleurons, spines gilt in compartments with a large rose tool; German library label in each volume on front paste-down, a little light dampstaining, going into the top of image of vol. 2, just into the blank upper margin of vol. 1. Superb examples of the art of the bookbinder. These volumes have bindings almost identical to those found on similar de' Rossi plate books, indicating that they were most likely made for the publisher; for example, see the Franklin Kissner Collection of Books on Rome, Christie's, 3 October 1990, lot 447. De' Rossi was one of the leading publishers of architectural works on Rome in the late XVII century. As well as buying up existing copperplates from other publishers and the heirs of artists, he also commissioned new engravings by artists such as Castiglione, Bartoli, and Aquila. De' Rossi not only documents the classical architecture of Rome from the renaissance onwards, but also groups them by building type. The lack of text puts the images in pride of place and the choice of images constitutes the sole editorial contribution of the author and publisher.

Set in good condition. A monumental work about the Middle and Far East including China, Japan, the Philippines, Egypt, India / Mogul Empire, Africa, East Indies, Australia etc. The most complete edition of this important geographical compilation, very valuable as far as the activities of the Dutch East India Company are concerned, and which contains some observations not found elsewhere. Our copy contains most of the very rare pieces which the author intended for the fifth part, which remained unfinished. These fragments are only found in the edition of 1696, and are wholly or partially missing from most of the other copies. It is decorated, in all of 101 cards and figures engraved on copper or on wood, of which 72 in the text. "An interesting collection, of which it is difficult to find complete copies, because each part is composed of separate parts. The first part was published in 1663 (or with a new title, Paris, Séb.Mabre-Cramoisy, in 1666); The second and third were in 1666; The fourth is 1672 [.]. The author was preparing a fifth part when death surprised him, and he left only various detached parts, some of which were not entirely printed. In 1696, after having reprinted some of the pieces which had been exhausted, new titles were added to the remaining copies, and, after the fourth part, there were added the pieces intended for the fifth, as they were in the house. " il est donc presque indifférent que les titres des volumes portent 1663, 1666, 1672 ou 1696, pourvu que toutes les pièces soient dans l'exemplaire» (Brunet). A detailed collation; Volume I.

        A practical discourse concerning swearing: especially in the two great points of perjury and common-swearing.

      London: Richard Sare 1696 - 8vo., (4) + xxix (i.e. xlv) + (15) + 144pp., including the preliminary blank (A1), contemporary panelled calf with raised bands, unlettered, short (1 cm.) split at head of upper joint but, nonetheless, a fine, crisp, copy. First edition. A 'practical discourse' on swearing in all its forms, including, of course, the use of profane words in everyday speech. it was, Wake suggests, an 'evil practice'. 'This is so just a reflection, that it is, perhaps, the only account that can be given, how men come to swear so ordinarily, and upon such little occasions, as they do: in such cases, where there is neither any manner of need of an oath for the conformation of what they speak; nor have they, often times, any such design in it. But 'tis a fashionable way of adorning, or rather of profaning their discourse; the practice of it is become almost epidemical; and they have, insensibly, accustomed their tongues to it, till at last they neither know how to avoid it, nor are themselves sensible when they do it .'. [p.104]. William Wake (1657-1737) was at the time rector of St. James's church, Westminster. In 1716 he was elevated to the Archbishopric of Canterbury. [Attributes: First Edition]
