        Relations de divers Voyages Curieux, Qui n'ont point esté publiées , Et qu'on a traduit ou tiré des Originaux des Voyageurs... François, Espagnols, Allemands, Portugais, Anglois, Holandois, Persans, Arabes & autres Orientaux. Nouvelle Edition, Augmentée de plusieurs Relations curieuses

      Paris: Thomas Moette, 1696. Five parts in two volumes, folio; altogether around 1500 pp.; with 15 folding maps and charts, including large folding maps of Australia, China, the Pacific, with the Philippines and Japan, and the map of Edso, North Japan (which is often lacking), full-page portrait, four full and ten folding or double-page engraved plates of costumes, plants, animals, alphabets etc., 46 full-page woodcut plates of Mexican inscriptions and pictograms, a woodcut, 12 engravings and several tables in the text; contemporary French mottled calf, sides bordered in gilt, spines (sympathetically rebacked) gilt in compartments between raised bands, red morocco labels; an attractive and fresh copy. FINISHED. First complete edition, with Tasman and Pelsaert. An excellent set of the rare, best and first complete edition of one of the most important of all travel collections, lavishly illustrated, and especially significant for the first appearance of numerous descriptions of the Pacific, the Far East, Australia and the Philippines. This was the first major work on Australia and the Pacific to receive a wide European readership. It includes a significant reference to early Chinese visits to the "Terre Australe" long before the arrival of Europeans (preface, 'Avis sur le dessein, & sur l'ordre de ce recueil', ã3v): 'Le Terre Australe… a esté découverte à plusieurs fois… Les Chinois en ont eu connoissance il y a long-temps; car l'on void que Marco-Polo marque deux grandes Iles au Sud-Est de Iava, ce qu'il avoit appris apparemment des Chinois…'. Melchisédech Thévenot (ca. 1620-1692) was custodian of the Royal Library from 1684 to his death, and "was in a particularly advantageous position to review the latest travel literature, and to have it translated and published by the royal printers. The Relations is rich in illustrations and maps reproduced or adapted from the Dutch, Latin, English, and Iberian originals. It also includes translations from a few Persian, Arabic, and other Oriental sources preserved in the libraries of Leyden and the Vatican and in private collections" (Donald Lach, Asia in the Making of Europe, III.1., pp. 410-11). Sets of the work, containing all five parts, and particularly all of the required maps, are of great rarity. When complete, as is this excellent copy, the geographical scope of the collection is nearly universal, taking in the Americas, China, Japan, Siam, the Philippines, Mongolia, India, Tartary, Egypt, Persia, Arabia, Asia Minor and Russia. Virtually all the component parts are enriched by illustration, the choice of material sometimes unpredictable and quite idiosyncratic: it ranges from detailed charts of coastlines suitable for navigational purposes, and a number of cartographically important maps, to depictions of botanical specimens, exotic cultural practices and writing systems. The range and quirky variety makes this one of the visual feasts of travel literature. An important inclusion in Thévenot's collection is his translation of Pelsaert's account of his discovery of Australia, documenting the experiences of the earliest European settlers on the continent and describing the Aboriginal people for the first time. Pelsaert recounts details of the wreck of the Batavia and his subsequent struggle with a mutinous crew. Accompanying the Pelsaert account is the rare and famous map of Abel Tasman's discoveries, 'one of the earliest charts devoted entirely to Australia and the first French map of the continent' (Davidson). The first published result of Tasman's great voyages, it was Thévenot's map which gave the world the first clear idea of the shape and location of the new fifth continent. The Tasman map appeared in at least four different states: in this copy it is in its third state, with corrections, and with the addition of the Tropic of Capricorn and rhumb lines. This is an earlier version than the fourth and final state more often seen in copies of the 1696 edition. This set also includes the two-part map of Northern Japan which is almost always missing. "A majority of Thévenot's relations pertain to the countries, peoples, and natural world of Asia, for he aimed quite openly to provide the French with the latest and best materials on navigation, trade, and life in the East. In addition to voyages previously published elsewhere, the Relations includes in Volume I an extract from a journal prepared in connection with the Dutch embassy to China in 1655-57, an account of the Dutch loss of Formosa in 1663, and a part of Aleixo da Motta's rutter of the East Indies translated from a Portuguese manuscript. Of particular importance for Sumatra is the memoir of General Augustin de Beaulieu on his East Indian voyage of 1620-22, contained in Volume II. This is followed by a series of accounts and maps relating to the Philippines and other islands such as Yezo (Hokkaido), as well as a map of the Indian Ocean prepared in 1649 by Joáo Teixeira, the royal cosmographer at Lisbon. Thévenot translated materials on China and its flora by the Jesuit Michael Boym, which appear at the end of Volume II. Volume III begins with Johann Nieuhof's account of the Dutch embassy of 1655 to China; it includes a number of spectacular engravings and a map of the route followed by the Dutch from Canton to Peking. Small amounts of fresh information on China's neighbours appear in Volume III, especially on the Mongol language. Volume II of the later editions includes what may well be the Decas secunda of Martino Martini's synopsis of China's dynastic history to the year A.D. 1666 as well as a Manchu vocabulary and a small Chinese grammar…" (Lach). Thévenot's work has one of the most complicated publication histories, since it was published over the course of more than thirty years, and a comparison of copies, even in contemporary bindings like that offered here, inevitably demonstrates some variation in organization and contents. A very full collation of this complete copy has been prepared and is available on request.

Tome II : titre, (1) f. de table, 536 pages, 2 planches. Louis LECOMTE, missionnaire jésuite, fut l`un des six mathématiciens envoyés en Chine en 1685 par la compagnie. Après deux années passées au royaume de Siam, il arriva le 8 février 1687 à Pékin, où on lui assigna la mission du Chen-si, l`une des plus pénibles de l`empire par son étendue, son climat et la distance entre les différentes églises. Durant cinq ans, il sillonna une grande partie du territoire chinois, ce qui lui permit de récolter de nombreuses et précieuses observations.

La parution de cet ouvrage "va déclencher un conflit théologique, une série de pamphlets pour ou contre, et imposer la Chine à l`attention de la France et de l`Occident" (Etiemble). « Cet ouvrage contient de très curieux détails sur les moeurs, usages et industries des chinois » (CHADENAT, 6339).

Some spotting on pp 13, 17-18 in part 3. Contemporary vellum, spines with brown gilt labels, marbles edges. Two volumes. Oettinger 7476. Warmholtz 3980. Andra upplagan. Den första utkom 1673 med titeln "La vie du maréchal du Gassion". Militären Jean de Gassion (1609-47) kom från en protestantisk släkt i Béarn och trädde 1631 i Gustav II Adolfs tjänst, där han blev ryttmästare och satte upp ett eget regemente. Efter kungen död övergick han i fransk tjänst, troligen efter osämja med Axel Oxenstierna och Bernhard av Weimar, där han hade stora framgångar. Han hade stor betydelse för den franska segern vid Rocroi 1643, vilket även erkändes av Condé, och han dog som fransk marskalk. Warmholtz är kritisk till boken. Enlig honom är den föga trovärdig, och Gassions relation till Gustav II Adolf förstorad liksom hans roll i kriget. Mycket liknar enligt Warmholtz snarare "gasconnader". Michael de Pures (1620-80) skildring bygger på efterlämnade anteckningar av den franske hugenottministern Du Prat, som även var Gassions välgörare. Verket avslutas med en hyllningsdikt till segern vid Rocroi, "Ex pugna Rocroia" av R. P. Cossart och med ett utdrag ur första delen av Jean de Silhons bok om Mazarin som handlar om Du Prat

Paris, chez la veuve de Cramoisy, 1696. 8 tomes en 16 volumes in-12. Plein veau granité, double filet à froid encadrant les plats, armoiries frappées or au centre, dos à nerfs orné de fleurons dorés, pièce de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge, coupes ornées, tranches jaspées.

Elle est ornée d?un frontispice représentant son arrestation et son procès. Willems, 1361 ; A. Sauvy, n°956. C?est en 1661, après la fête donnée par Fouquet dans son Château de Vaux le Vicomte que le roi Louis XIV ordonna l?arrestation du surintendant. « Transféré au château d?Angers, puis à Amboise, à Vincennes, enfin à la Bastille, le prisonnier vit enfin commencer son procès, qui dura quatre ans ». Ce fut un évènement considérable qui émut la cour, l?élite et le peuple « La veuve Cramoisy de Paris se rendit adjudicataire du fonds de l?édition du Recueil des défenses de M. Fouquet, 5 + 7 volumes in-12 imprimée par Daniel Elzevier en 1665 et 1667, et la remit en vente en 1696 (16 volumes). Aux volumes de l?édition elzévirienne furent joints le Traité du Péculat et le Factum ». Cet ouvrage, composé pour la défense de Fouquet avait été saisi. » (Willems). « Ce procès fut un des plus scandaleux de l'histoire. Dès le départ, on falsifie les inventaires de saisie, on ajoute des pièces fabriquées, on en retire d'autres, on altère le texte qui devait être soumis aux Cours souveraines, on refuse pendant plusieurs mois à Foucquet tout conseil et tout document. Quand on sut que Fouquet échappa à la mort, la joie populaire explosa, mais aussi celle de la Reine-mère, d'abord troublée au début du procès par la cabale anti-Fouquet, mais qui avait fini par comprendre ce qui se cachait derrière cet odieux procès."

        The Arraignment, Tryal, and Condemnation of Ambrose Rookwood, for the Horrid and Execrable Conspiracy to Assissinate His Sacred Majesty King William in Order to a French Invasion of this Kingdom

      London - Samuel Heyrick, 1696. London - Samuel Heyrick, 1696 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The extremely scarce first publication of the trial of one of the Jacobite assassins who made an attempt on the life of William of Orange. 'Who upon full evidence was found guilty of high treason before His Majesty's Justices of Oyer and Terminer, at Westminster, on Tuesday the 21st of April 1696 and received sentence the day following. And was executred at Tyburn on the 19th day of the said month'. 'In which Tryal is contained all the learned arguments of the King's Council, and likewise the Council for the Prisoner, upon the new Act of Parliament for regulating tryals in cases of treason'. Advertisement to the rear. Ambrose Rookwood (16641696), Jacobite conspirator, was the great-grandson and namesake of Ambrose Rookwood, the gunpowder plotter. AOn 21 July 1694 NS Ambrose was appointed a brigadierthat is, one of the four corporalsin the duke of Berwick's troop of James's bodyguards, of which Brigadier-General Sir George Barclay was lieutenant. In the winter of 16956, James sent Barclay to organize an English rising to accompany the proposed French invasion, and a score of his guards, with Rookwood as subordinate commander, to be officers in the inexperienced rebel regiments. On his arrival in London, Rookwood found planning for the assassination plot well advanced. He openly expressed unwillingness to engage in so desperate a venture, but submitted when Barclay ordered him to command a party, considering it his soldierly duty to obey his superior officer. Barclay planned to attack William's coach at Turnham Green with a small party while two larger ones assaulted his guards from either side. Rookwood commanded one of these, consisting of men come from France. Rookwood was named in the proclamation of 23 February 1696. He was arrested soon afterwards while staying under aliases at a Tower Hill tavern (Rookwood used the alias Felton), were committed on general suspicion to the Poultry Compter prison. He was arraigned on 14 April with Major Robert Lowick and the Jacobite quartermaster Charles Cranburn. His trial, on 21 April, the first held under the new Treason Trials Act, was mainly occupied by arguments between his counsel, Sir Bartholomew Shower and Constantine Phipps (afterwards lord chancellor of Ireland), the crown law officers, and Lord Chief Justice Holt over the new procedure. Rookwood, a man of deeds more than words (Gage, 249n. ), said almost nothing then, or when he, Lowick, and Cranburn were executed at Tyburn on 29 April 1696. Having originally resolved to die in silence (ibid. ), on second thoughts he left a paper, mainly to clear James of the charge of authorizing the assassination. DNBCondition: Disbound. The pages are firmly bound together, although pages 19-37 are missing. Extremely bright and clean for its age, just a few small handling marks. Overall: FAIR..

Ce volume réunit les grands textes sur l'anatomie et la physiologie de Lorenzo Bellini (1643-1704). Elève de Redi et Borelli, il applique dans ses études une théorie mécanique de la physiologie du corps humain. "The "Opuscula" developed Bellini's earlier iatromecanical themes most fully. Organisazed onto postulates, theorems, and corollaries, it treats problems ranging from the hydraulics of intrauterine and extrauterine circulation to the mechanics of the "contractile villi". For example he considered the blood to be a fluid flowing through conical vessels, according to Borelli's laws of hydraulics, and he imagined that the "contractile villi" (which explain the body's reaction to stimuli) expand, contract, and vibrate like ordinary musical stings. In these carefully stated positions Bellini hoped to explain all important physiological phenomena according to the laws of mechanics." DSB 1, 593.

Contemporary "sombre" binding of black goatskin, the covers tooled all-over in blind, with repeated draw-handles, a stylised and a naturalistic flower, buds, palmette and roundels. The spine divided into five panels, tooled in blind with repeated draw-handles, a wedge-shaped floral tool and roundels, the edges of the boards tooled with a blind roll, plain endleaves, darkened edges. (Spine slightly faded and rubbed, corners a little bumped). Wing B.3694A, with reference to an engraved frontispiece but no mention of the other plates (and while the frontispiece is lettered in Latin, the additional plates are captioned in English, implying that they were intended for another work). This version of the Liturgy was largely translated into Latin by John Durel. There is some browning throughout, and the upper corner of D11 and D12 are torn (though they are separated by a plate that has not been torn). The binding is a little out of square, as a result of use. It is nevertheless in good condition, and is a handsome example of a "sombre" binding, with a profusion of small tools. Such bindings were produced for use at times of mourning, or for Lenten observance.

Premiere traduction francaise, rare, complete des deux parties, de 'The Reasonableness of christianity, and its vindications', publiee anonymement immediatement a la suite de l'originale londonienne. "In october 1695 Jean le Clerc reported to Locke from Amsterdam that the Westein firm was having the 'Reasonableness' translated into french" (Yolton). La traduction de Pierre Coste, protestant francais refugie en Angleterre au moment de la revocation de l'Edit de Nantes, est fidele au texte original ("fairly faithfull") et le traducteur a pris la liberte de diviser l'ouvrage en 15 chapitres. Le second volume, publie en 1703, contient une traduction libre des deux "Vindications" de Locke, avec notes critiques, commentaires et eclaircissements du traducteur places entre guillemets. Initialement destine a donner un fondement theorique a une reconciliation religieuse, l'ouvrage souleva une intense polemique en Angleterre et fut abondamment lu et commente par les Philosophes des Lumieres.

        The Compleat Horseman: or, The Perfect Farrier: In Tw0 Parts

      London.: M. Gillyflower, R. Bentley, H. Bonwick, et al., 1696, London. M. Gillyflower, R. Bentley, H. Bonwick, et al. 1696, Bound in later, 3/4 undecorated burgundy morocco. Raised bands. Marbled endsheets. Bookplate of George A. Downing to front pastedown. Thick Folio. 325mm x 198mm. The First Edition in English. Illustrated by a copperplate engraved frontispiece and 6 additional folding copperplate engraved plates(this copy lacks the portrait of Solleysell). The Parfait Mareschal (Compleat Farrier) was first published in France in 1644.This First Edition in English, Translated by Sir William Hope, was adapted from the Eighth French Edition. After studying at Lyon, Solleysell, a celebrated "Master of Horse", moved to Paris, there to practice his trade in the most celebrated riding schools of the day. He accompanied the Comte d'Avaux to Germany on a diplomatic mission in 1645, where he absorbed the superlative German advances in Veterinary science and Equitation. Upon his return to France, Solleysell established his own riding Academy,assisted Bernardi (his pupil), in founding another as well as embarking into the King's Service. Solleysell was an artist of some merit and it is likely that he executed the engravings which illustrate this work. Mellon/Podeschi 41; Wing S-4457. Solleysell Portrait plate lacking. Short, older, archival butterfly tape and adhesive repair to Frontis. Reinforced chip to Title page which has been tipped-on to recto of Frontis. Binding cord visible at gutter between recto of Title and Dedicatory Pages (binding most firm). Plates are generally crisp, with usual sporadic light toning but no foxing worthy of mention. Specifically, plates present : Frontis - Marginal chipping at gutter. Sort tear at top edge. 1 - Nonintrusive chipping to fore-edge. 2. Chipped fore-edge, short tear to slightly trimmed top edge. 3. Chipping to edge at gutter, short intrusive 2" tear at gutter. 4. Tiny wear-through at crease. 5. There are 2 copies of this plate.

Als Finanzbeamter der apostolischen Datarie an den Gemeindevorstand von Soriano nel Cimino (Prov. Viterbo) in Finanzangelegenheiten der Gemeinde. - Mariani, zuvor langjähriger Mitarbeiter der apostolischen Datarie, begleitete 1702 den päpstlichen Legaten Kardinal Tournon nach China, wo dieser die Einhaltung der Riten unter den dortigen Christen überprüfen sollte. Gemeinsam mit dem Jesuiten Joachim Bouvet wurde Mariani 1706 Leiter einer Delegation des Kaisers von China. Nach anfänglichen diplomatischen Erfolgen Tournons und Marianis am chinesischen Kaiserhof fielen beide jedoch wegen Missachtung der Etikette und aufgrund von Konflikten mit den Jesuiten bei Kaiser Kangxi in Ungnade. Mariani wurde 1707 aus Bejing verwiesen und verbrachte die folgenden Jahre als Prokurator der römischen Kongregation Propaganda Fide in Macao; zeitweilig unter Arrest. Als Mariani 1719 auch aus Macao verwiesen wurde, begab er sich ins indische Madras ( - damals unter portugiesischer Herrschaft), wo er zwei Jahre später verstarb. - In China war Mariani bekannt unter dem Namen "Sha Guoan" [Cha-Quc-Ghan]. Nach zuvor nur sporadischen Kontakten zwischen der Katholischen Kirche und China festigten sich die römisch-chinesischen Kontakte im 17. Jahrhundert, v.a. aufgrund der Bemühungen seitens der Jesuiten. Der Misserfolg der Mission Tournons und Marianis führte 1722 zur Ausweisung der christlichen Missionare aus China.

      London Printed for A. and J. Churchill 1696 - First Collected Edition of Locke's Writings on the Fundamentals of Economics LOCKE, John. Several Papers Relating to Money, Interest and Trade, &c. Writ upon several Occasions, and Published at different Times. London: Printed for A. and J. Churchill, 1696. First collected edition of Locke's important writings on the fundamentals of economics. Small octavo (6 5/16 x 3 3/4 inches; 159 x 95 mm). [4], 4, 192; 24; [16], 111, [1, advertisement], [1, eratta], [1, blank] pp. With general title-page, and separate title-pages for Some Considerations and Further Considerations. Contemporary full speckled calf, rebacked to style. Boards stamped in blind. Red morocco spine label, lettered in gilt. Boards a bit chipped chipped and bumped. Overall avery good copy. Comprised of: The Second edition Corrected of: Some Considerations of the Consequences of the Lowering of Interest, and Raising the Value of Money. In a Letter to a Member of Parliament, 1691. London: for Awnsham and John Churchill, 1696. [and] Short Observations on a Printed Paper, Intituled, For encouraging the Coining Silver Money in England, and after for keeping it here. [1695] [and] Further Considerations Concerning Raising the Value of Money. Wherein Mr. Lowndes?s Arguments for it in his late Report concerning An Essay for the Amendment of the Silver Coins, are particularly Examined. London: Printed for A. and J. Churchil, 1695. ESTC lists two variants: one has "By John Locke, Esq;" on the title-page, 'Further Considerations' dated 1695, and 111 pages. The other issue has "By Mr. John Locke" on the title-page, "Further Considerations" dated 1696, and 112 pages. This copy is a combination of the two, with 'Further Considerations' dated 1695 and "By Mr. John Locke" on the title-page. "?The Great Recoinage? controversy of the 1690s was the impetus for Locke?s writings on mercantile and monetary theory. In the 1660s Sir Josiah Child had argued that the legal rate of interest should be lowered. It was still a topic for political discussion in the early 1690s: Child was still pressing the argument, and was supported by London merchants. Locke however defended a legal rate of interest but refused to fix it below the current rates. This was the occasion for his publishing Some Considerations of the Consequences of the Lowering of Interest and Raising the Value of Money in 1692. When William Lowndes, Secretary of the Treasury, proposed in 1695 to raise the nominal value of coins, Locke slightly revised Some Considerations and also published two further pamphlets, Short Considerations, and Further Considerations. At that time gold and silver coins had a value equivalent to their metal content, representing nothing but their silver or gold quantity. Locke rejected devaluation, basing his argument on this ?commodity theory? of money. He considered ?raising of the denomination or the increase of alloy? to be debasement and fraud" (Yolton). "Locke?s second major essay, Further Considerations Concerning Raising the Value of Money (1695), while it reiterated many of his earlier arguments, was mostly concerned with the issue of recoinage. Locke took issue with a proposal to devalue the official coinage by 20 per cent and argued strongly for recoining at the old standard the currently circulating coins debased by clipping and normal wear and tear. Money, Locke argued was equivalent to gold and silver. People contracted for gold and silver and a government stamp was simply an assurance of the specie content of official coins. Hence, a devaluation would only confuse trade and cause an increase in prices denominated in terms of pounds and shillings" (The New Palgrave). Einaudi. Goldsmiths'. Kress.

        Relations de divers voyages curieux, qui nont point este publiees

      Paris: , 1696. A very complete copy, with a distinguished Provenance. 1696. Paris. Thomas Moette. Two volumes in folio (350 mm x 218 mm). A very difficult and tricky collation, available upon request, but more complete than most copies, as mentioned by Brunet (including the parts that would integrate the fifth part never published and the rare fragments, see collation for details). Contemporary calf, boards with gilt fillet and centre with arms of the Lindesiana; neatly and tastefully rebacked to style, with raised bands, tooled and lettered in gilt. Foxing spots and toning throughout, heavier to places, occasional soiling; folding maps generally in excellent condition but with a few tears here and there.Amongst travel collections, Thevenot?s occupies a distinguished place, being one of the most complete and lavishly produced; its scope includes Africa, the Far East, South East Asia, America, amongst other places. The relation on Australia is certainly one of the most significant and primary sources of information on the Island.The collection is also of great American interest; it contains Palafox?s study on the natives, Acarette du Biscay?s relation of La Plata and Gage?s relation, which includes an important passage on Mexico, and is profusely illustrated. Asia and Africa are also well represented here, with actually more than half of the first volume being dedicated to it. Possibly the most important relation is that of Abel Tasman.The illustration is composed of maps, views and plates; the maps includes East Africa, the Indies, China, Hindustan, the Tasman map of Australia in its second issue ?with rhumb lines- and several others; the plates show costumes, plants, architecture and such. The Tasman map is a cornerstone of Australian cartography, both as the earliest obtainable map of the region as well as the predominant depiction from which the World would know the Island for about a century. The importance of this map, thus, can hardly be overstated.An exceedingly difficult book to collate, "Bibliographers have expended great pains on the collation of the Thevenot collection" (Catalogue of the John Carter Brown Library, vol. III, 102); "Collection interessante, don?t il est difficile de trouver des exemplaires complets" (Brunet). Thevenot?s collection was published in parts and over roughly 10 years, thus almost no copy is alike another. The first part went to the printer in 1663, the second and third in 1666 and the fourth 1672, a fifth part was being prepared when death found Thevenot before completion. Sabin?s note is very enlightening regarding this issue "It will be understood from this that there really was only one edition of Thévenot, and as that edition was completed only in 1696, the issue bearing that year on its general title-page is ordinarily regarded as the standard for collation." This collection has been collated against Brunet, for it appears the most comprehensive bibliography: "The standard authority on the work as a whole is still the Mémoire sur la Collection des grands et petits Voyages, et sur la Collection des Voyages de Melchisedech Thevenot, by A G. Camus, Paris, 1802. Brunet gave a collation in which he added two pieces not recorded by Camus." (JCBL).Bibliotheca Lindesiana IV, 8830- 8840. Brunet, Manuel du Libraire et de L? Amateur de Livres, V, pp. 810-13. Palau, 331563.

Written as a dialogue between the author and Christiaan de Cort. Antoinette Bourignon de la Porte (1616 - 1680) was a French-Flemish mystic and adventurer. She taught that the end times would come soon and that the Last Judgment would then be felled. Her belief was that she was chosen by God to restore true Christianity on earth and became the central figure of a spiritual network that extended beyond the borders of the Dutch Republic, including Holstein and Scotland. Bourignon's sect belonged to the spiritualist movements that have been characterized as the 'third power.' In Mechelen she won her first follower, Christiaan de Cort (1608/1609 - 1669), a Catholic priest. In 1667 she moved with De Cort to Amsterdam to attract more sponsors. There she met Jean de Labadie, Comenius and Anna Maria van Schurman and there she commenced the publication of her writings. Her religious enthusiasm, peculiarity of views and disregard of all sects raised both zealous persecutors and warm adherents. By serving as spiritual leader for a group of gifted, (married) men Antoinette broke with the established norms and values of her time. Among her followers were merchants, craftsmen, doctors (such as Steven Blankaart), painters, rentiers, clerics and scholars (such as Robert Boyle, who had her work translated into English), and Comenius, who invited her to his deathbed. Her writings, containing an account of her life and of her visions and opinions, were collected by her disciple, Pierre Poiret (19 vols, Amsterdam, 1679 - 1686), who also published her life (2 vols, 1683). This 1696 edition is the earliest of English translations of 'La lumiere du monde.' 'An admonition to the reader' at the front, is signed: P.P.P., or Pierre Poiret Naude (1646 - 1719), a prominent seventeenth century French mystic and Christian philosopher, and disciple of Antoinette Bourignon until her death in 1680. Full Title: 'The light of the world: a most true relation of a pilgrimess, M. Antonia Bourignon, travelling towards eternity. Published by Mr. Christian de Cort, late director of the Isle of Noordstrand, superior of the oratory, and pastor of S. John at Mechlin. Divided into three parts. Which deserve to be read, understood and consider'd by all who desire to be sav'd. Written originally in French, and faithfully translated into English. To which is added, a preface to the English reader.' . Very Good. 1696. First Edition.
