        The Entire Works..., newly made English from the originals: wherein the history of acute and chronic diseases, and the safest and most effectual methods of treating them, are faithfully, clearly, and accurately delivered. To which are added, explanatory and practical notes, from the best medicinal writers.

      First edition of Swan?s translation, and the first publication of Samuel Johnson's seven-page ?Life of Dr. Sydenham.? The publisher of this edition, Edward Cave, was the originator of the Gentleman?s Magazine, which printed some of Samuel Johnson?s first published work. It seems likely that Swan was introduced to Cave who commissioned this translation and then commissioned a biography from Johnson. The ?Life? was reprinted in the Gentleman's Magazine later in the year (December).Swan?s was the second edition in English of Sydenham?s complete works, after Pechey?s of 1696, but it was Swan?s edition that became the main English source for Sydenham?s thoughts until that of R.G. Latham in two volumes (1848?"50) superseded it. ?The sound judgement and acute observations of Thomas Sydenham, the English Hippocrates, freed clinical medicine from the last vestiges of medievalism, and set the pattern for further progress? (Dewhurst, Dr. Thomas Sydenham (1624?"1689), p. vii.Meynell, A Bibliography of...Sydenham, 15.1. Fleeman, A bibliography of...Johnson, 42.11SW/1. Courtney, p. 12.

        Les Caractères de Theophraste traduits du grec avec les caractères ou les moeurs de ce Siècle. Neuvième Edition

      chez Adrian Moetjens, La Haye 1696 - In-12 reliure plein veau d'époque, dos orné, (12) ff., 500 - XXXIV - 20 pp. D'après Servois, " cette contrefaçon imprimée la même année que la neuvième de Paris, en est la reproduction. S'il est vrai quelle fut une publication hollandaise, on pourrait s'étonner que l'éditeur n'ait pas ressenti les scrupules qui ont déterminé l'imprimeur de Bruxelles, Léonard, à supprimer les pages où la Bruyère attaquait le roi Guillaume et ses alliés ; mais M. Caudin nous affirme que l'édition a été imprimée en France, probablement à Lyon ". Toujours d'après Servois, il existerait deux contrefaçons de la dernière édition originale : la nôtre (1696) et une éditée en 1698 avec une clef différente en fin d'ouvrage de 24 pp. sur deux colonnes. (G. Servois, oeuvres de la Bruyère T; IV, p. 44, § 14). Exemplaire en très bonne condition dans sa reliure d'époque. Rare.

        Several Papers Relating to Money, Interest and Trade, &c

      First Collected Edition of Locke\'s Writings on the Fundamentals of EconomicsLOCKE, 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. Lowndesís 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.ìëThe Great Recoinageí controversy of the 1690s was the impetus for Lockeís 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 ëcommodity theoryí of money. He considered ëraising of the denomination or the increase of alloyí to be debasement and fraudî (Yolton).ìLockeís 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 shillingsî (The New Palgrave).Einaudi. Goldsmiths\'. Kress.HBS 66981RSL.$11,000

        The Regulating Silver Coin:

      London: Henry Bonwick,, 1696. Made Practicable and Easie To The Government And Subject. Humbly submitted to the consideration of both Houses of Parliament. By a Lover of his Country. Octavo (188 × 115 mm). Rebound with blue boards and blue cloth spine, lettered in black, cream endpapers, edges speckled red. First gathering with diminishing water stain, small chips to edges of title page, otherwise a very good copy. First edition. Pratt's contribution to the debate surrounding the recoinage of 1696 was paid for by the Treasury and broadly supported William Lowndes' case for devaluation. Pratt suggests that coin has not just extrinsic value, but a third "real" value, "adherent to the Species, with respect to time and place".

        De cyfer-konst, noyt voor desen den leerlingen grondiger, noch ook duydelijcker, voorgestelt. ... Den vijfde druck, van alle mis-druck gesuyvert, verbetert, ende merckelijck vermeerdert, door Dirck de Hollander... Amsterdam, widow of Gysbert de Groot, 1696. Small 8vo (15 x 9.5 cm). 19th-century(?) sheepskin parchment.

      Bierens de Haan 902; Muller, Pop. proza 1050; STCN (1 copy); WorldCat (same copy); cf. Bywater & Yamey, pp. 103-104. Second copy located of the 1696 edition of Dirck de Hollander's standard revision of a standard Dutch mathematical exercise book (with answers) for use in schools. The present edition describes itself as the fifth, but is at least the tenth and probably little changed from the 1685 edition, which also called itself the fifth. All 17th-century editions are very rare, the STCN recording 3 copies of one (1664) and no more than 2 copies of any other (some are not recorded in the STCN at all). The simple assignments are designed to teach basic arithmetic and bookkeeping for practical commercial purposes. David Cock was an Arnhem school master, active as such in at least the years 1641 to 1652. His present text book was his most successful work, with many further editions and adaptations to 1799.Slightly browned, but still in good condition. Boards slightly warped. A valuable window into 17th-century Dutch education and training for trade and commerce.

        Analyse des Infiniment Petits, pour l'intelligence des lignes courbes

      Fine armorial engraving on title, engraved vignettes, & 11 folding engraved plates. 9 p.l., 181, [1] pp., 1 leaf. Large 4to, cont. speckled calf (upper joint very carefully repaired at head & foot, minor rubbing), spine richly gilt. Paris: Imprimerie Royale, 1696. First edition of the first textbook of the differential calculus and a very controversial book. The Marquis de l'Hospital (1661-1704), was among the earliest pupils of Jean Bernoulli who, in 1691, spent some months at his house in Paris for the purpose of teaching him the new calculus, the knowledge of which was then confined to Newton, Leibniz, and the two elder Bernoullis. There was at that time no textbook on the subject and the credit for putting together the first treatise which explained the principles and the use of the method is due to l'Hospital. The book had a wide circulation and went through many editions; it brought the differential notation into general use in France and helped to make it known throughout Europe. The preface is of great interest for the history of the calculus and the early phase of the Newton-Leibniz controversy on its invention. This first edition is a very rare book. Very good copy. Discrete embossed ownership stamp on title. ❧ D.S.B., VIII, pp. 304-05. Smith, History of Mathematics, I, p. 384. Babson, Supp., p. 30. .

        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.

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

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.

        Liturgia

      excudebat E. Jones, impensis A. Swall & T. Childe, Londini 1696 - Liturgia, Seu Liber Precum Communium, Et Administrationis Sacramentorum, Aliorumque Rituum atque Ceremoniarum Ecclesiæ Juxta Usum Ecclesiæ Anglicanæ: Una Cum Psalterio Seu Psalmis Davidis, Ea Punctatione distinctis, qua Cantari aut Recitari debent in Ecclesiis. Itemque Forma & Modus Faciendi, Ordinandi & Consecrandi Episcopos, Presbyteros, Diacones. Engraved frontispiece and 51 additional engraved plates. 8vo. [168 x 95 x 32 mm]. [25], [164] ff. 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.
