CASAS, Bartolomé de las
Paris: André Pralard, 1697. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. 1697 1st ed Las Casas Spanish West Indies VOYAGES Cortez Conquistadors Torture Bartolomé de las Casas was a 16th-century Spanish historian who published an important historical account of the discovery of West Indies by Spain. This book chronicled the first years of Spanish colonization in the New World; however, it did provide a view of the severe maltreatment of the local tribes in the Caribbean islands. He provides early information on Cuba, Nicaragua, Jamaica, and many other ports and islands. This work also provides details on the exploration and findings of Hernando Cortez! This 1697 first French edition of 'The Discovery of the West Indies' was among the first books printed to expose the torture and oppression to Caribbean peoples. Casas was named as the Protector of the Indians for his role in seeking to end the cruelty.

Boards and binding in uniformly very good condition. New endpapers. Red speckled fore edge and bottom edge. Top edges soiled. Paper is generally clean with a range of moderate toning near front and back of volumes to very clean interiors. Very little foxing. Trimming is a little uneven, but no text lost. Vol. 1 with three folding maps for a total of four maps (calls for four folding maps) , plus tables. Map of East Indies has five inch tear (taped) plus fore edge taped. Vol. 2 is complete with four folding maps. The fore edge of two maps slightly extends beyond book block.

Captain William Dampier was an English explorer and navigator becoming the first Englishman to explore parts of what is today Australia. He also was the first to apparently describe a kangaroo outside of Australian texts. Dampier is also credited as the first person to circumnavigate the world three times, which considering the times was indeed an accomplishment. His work on the natural history of Australia lends some to credit him as that country's first natural historian. Dampier's voyages were sandwiched between those of Walter Raleigh and James Cook.

Allard-- Carolus (1648-1709)
NORTH AND SOUTH AMERICA HEIGHTENED WITH GOLD "Recentissima Novi Orbis Sive Americae Septentrionalis et Meridionalis Tabula". Copper engraving published in Amsterdam by Carolus Allard c. 1697. Original hand colouring, heightened with gold. Rare map of North and South America, the first to show important corrections to the mapping of the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River Valley. The cartouche is especially attractive, with an allegorical figure of America seated within a sugar cane field inhabited by exotic animals and scenes relating to mankind's eternal search for gold. Allard's map includes one of the boldest depictions of the myth of Terra Esonis, a land bridge extending from Japan to the Straits of Anian, here with over a dozen place names and only a small strait on either side. We see a beautiful example of California as an Island, based upon Nicholas Sanson's second projection. The open ended Great Lakes and primitive early treatment of the Mississippi River are also noteworthy, as is the early Rio Colorado, extending to a lake in Apachas and Navaio regions of the Southwest, and mistakenly referencing Taos and Xila, indicating a confusion with the Rio Grande regarding the Taos reference. The interior of South America includes tribal vignettes in Brazil and a misprojected, overly wide projection of the continent. An further interesting aspect of the map is the depiction of early Australia. Quiri Regio, the Northern parts of what would become Australia, are also well delineated, showing what would become Carpentaria, the Gulf of Carpentaria and Arnhem Land.

Evangelium infantiae. Vel liber apocryphus de infantia servatoris. Ex manuscripto edidit, ac latina versione & notis illustravit ... Utrecht, François Halma, Willem vande Water, 1697. 8vo. With the main text in Arabic with a parallel Latin translation on the facing pages. Contemporary vellum. [22], 161, [7], 93, [1], [2 blank] pp. First edition of the apocryphal Arabic Infancy Gospel, with the Arabic text on the versos and the Latin translation on the facing rectos. Sike, a noted orientalist from Bremen, based his edition on a manuscript that was formerly owned by Jacobus Golius, and the many notes include excerpts from the Quran and other works. The work narrates miracle stories from the first 12 years of Jesus's life, and probably originated in the fourth or fifth century. The wide range of non-Latin types, with not only Arabic and the more common Greek and Hebrew, but also a few words of Syriac, was unusual at this date. With shelf number label and a later manuscript presentation inscription. Some foxing, mostly along the margins, otherwise in very good condition. A couple minor stains on the binding, but otherwise also very good. Schnurrer, Bibliotheca Arabica 412; STCN (8 copies); Zenker, Bibliotheca Orientalis 1239.

CASAS, Bartolome de las
Paris: André Pralard, 1697. 1697 1st ed Las Casas Spanish West Indies VOYAGES Cortez Conquistadors TortureBartolomé de las Casas was a 16th-century Spanish historian who published an important historical account of the discovery of West Indies by Spain. This book chronicled the first years of Spanish colonization in the New World; however, it did provide a view of the severe maltreatment of the local tribes in the Caribbean islands. He provides early information on Cuba, Nicaragua, Jamaica, and many other ports and islands. This work also provides details on the exploration and findings of Hernando Cortez! This 1697 first French edition of 'The Discovery of the West Indies' was among the first books printed to expose the torture and oppression to Caribbean peoples. Casas was named as the Protector of the Indians for his role in seeking to end the cruelty.Item number: #10889Price: $2950CASAS, Bartolomé de lasLa decouverte des Indes Occidentales par les Espagnols / ecrite par don Balthazar de Las Casas, evêque de ChiapaA Paris : Chez André Pralard ..., 1697. 1st editionDetails: · Collation: Completeo [10], 382, [2]· References: Sabin 11273; Hill 982· Language: French· Binding: Leather; tight & secure· Size: ~6.75in X 4in (17cm x 10cm)· Exceedingly rare and desirable with auction records and price comparisons as high as $14,000 for this workOur Guarantee:Very Fast.

Connor, Bernard
R. Wellington (etc), London, 1697. First Edition, small octavo in original unrestored full vellum binding, a Fine copy rare thus; Bibliotheca Osleriana 2358. Oslar notes: "In spite of its title, this is a work on physiology, natural and supernatural, with a table of biblical references at the end. It is followed, with separate pagination, by a series of espitles . . . The last being a synopsis of his lectures". Bernard Connor (1666-1698) led a short but almost incredibly full life. He is probably claimed in some context by Ireland [where he was born], France [where he studied medicine], England [where he lectured at both Oxford and Cambridge]; he was also court physician to Polish King John Sobieski, and the diplomatic escort of the king's daughter to her marriage with the elector of Bavaria. He returned to England in 1695. see Dictionary of Irish Biography, DNB, ODNB, etc [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

1697-1789. The Market for Food in ParisPreserved in a marbled-paper clamshell box, red morocco lettering piece on spine.AN EXTRAORDINARY COLLECTION of twenty-two various laws, taxes, and regulations governing the sale and distribution of foods in France, especially as regards cheese, butter, and eggs, but also for bread, wheat, fruit, peas, rice, and various meats (wild game, veal, chicken, lamb, and goat). All are FIRST EDITIONS and extremely rare; only four are to be found in OCLC, and each of those, in one or two locations only. Twenty are unbound and untrimmed, two are disbound, and nearly all have lovely ornate woodcut headpieces (some of which are signed).These twenty-two works span 92 years and give a wonderful picture of the sale and distribution of foods in France from the late 17th century through the 18th century. During this period, the supply and availability of food was crucial to France's stability as a nation, and one of the important ways to meet that need, was through the governance of food production and distribution. This collection provides a view into that process as well as much detailed information around the sale and marketing of specific foods. Here are some of the subjects covered by the material in this collection: who is empowered to collect the taxes on various foods; the taxation of food sold in public places; how much the tax will be charged relative to the amount a farmer at market makes in sales; when a food vendor – who sells from their basket or on the street – can let his children negotiate the price of their food for sale; various … [Click Below for Full Description]

SIKE (SIECKE), Heinrich (editor).
Evangelium infantiae. Vel liber apocryphus de infantia servatoris. Ex manuscripto edidit, ac latina versione & notis illustravit ... Utrecht, François Halma, Willem vande Water, 1697. 8vo. With the main text in Arabic with a parallel Latin translation on the facing pages. Contemporary vellum. [22], 161, [7], 93, [1], [2 blank] pp. First edition of the apocryphal Arabic Infancy Gospel, with the Arabic text on the versos and the Latin translation on the facing rectos. Sike, a noted orientalist from Bremen, based his edition on a manuscript that was formerly owned by Jacobus Golius, and the many notes include excerpts from the Quran and other works. The work narrates miracle stories from the first 12 years of Jesus's life, and probably originated in the fourth or fifth century. The wide range of non-Latin types, with not only Arabic and the more common Greek and Hebrew, but also a few words of Syriac, was unusual at this date. With shelf number label and a later manuscript presentation inscription. Some foxing, mostly along the margins, otherwise in very good condition. A couple minor stains on the binding, but otherwise also very good. Schnurrer, Bibliotheca Arabica 412; STCN (8 copies); Zenker, Bibliotheca Orientalis 1239.

Gibson, Thomas
London: T.W. for Awnsham Churchi, 1697. Good, some fairly heavy wear to the covers, joints cracked. The binding is sound but a bit fragile. Please see photos and description. Up for sale is rare antique 1697 leather bound copy of, "The Anatomy of Humane Bodies Epitomized." The book is illustrated with 20 anatomical engravings. It is overall in good condition with some signs of wear and age. The leather covers have some fairly heavy wear with some chipping and loss to the leather. There are a few spots of old dried glue to the covers near the joints and on the spine and a couple of the cords. There is some weakening to the binding towards the middle of the spine. The joints are heavily cracked and the lower binding cord of the front cover is broken. The boards are still fairly well attached by the remaining cords and the binding is still sound, though it's somewhat fragile and some care should be taken when handling the book. There is an old name inscription to the front free endpaper and some foxing and soiling to the back endpapers. The interior is lightly toned from age but is mostly nice and clean, though there may be the very occasional page with a light bit of foxing, soiling, or grubbiness or some kind of other minor imperfection such as a tiny chip, small tear, very minor spot of worming, light wrinkle, etc. Generally though, the interior is nice. The text of the book is in English. The book measures approximately 7 1/2 inches by 5 inches and is about 626 pages long. It is collated and complete. Please look at all of the photos to further note the condition.

ELEGANT DARK BLUE CRUSHED MOROCCO BY CHARLES LEWIS (owner's ink notation, dated 1831, on rear flyleaf), covers bordered by three gilt rules, raised bands, spine compartments with rows of gilt flowers, tan morocco label, gilt-rolled turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Front pastedown with engraved armorial bookplate of William Gott; 1906 article reporting on Gott's sale at Sotheby's, mentioning this volume specifically, laid in at front; rear flyleaf with ink note: "Hibberts sale. 1839 / binding by C. Lewis 1831." Wing M-1810; ESTC R19511. Very slight signs of wear to leather, but the attractive binding extremely well preserved and very pleasing. Leaves apparently lightly pressed, minor soiling to title page and last four leaves, small repairs to worming on upper corner and head edge of A2, but a clean and fresh copy internally. First printed in 1685, this is a book with two very different parts, the first being a rowdy and amusing poem on Yorkshire ales, and the second a much more serious and important linguistic work on the Yorkshire dialect--both offered here in a binding by a prominent English craftsman. Scion of a landed county family and author of well-regarded legal treatises, attorney George Meriton (1634-1711) began to create a record of the Yorkshire dialect in 1683, when he published "A York-shire Dialogue in its Pure Natural Dialect." A second edition was printed in 1685, prefaced by the poem "The Praise of York-shire Ale" and wit … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rebound in Victorian binding. Rubbing along spine and along corners. Scratch marks on front board. Marbled end papers. Marginalia in pencil throughout textblock. Gutter is tender.

The first collection of Milton's Prose Works, preceding by one year Toland's edition of 1698. Rare and until recently almost unknown. John Milton was an English poet and intellectual who served as a civil servant for the Commonwealth of England under its Council of State and later under Oliver Cromwell. Considered the "greatest English author" and generally regarded "as one of the preeminent writers in the English language" John Dryden, an early enthusiast, in 1677 began the trend of describing Milton as the poet of the sublime. Many enlightenment thinkers of the 18th century revered and commented on Milton's poetry and non-poetical works--Alexander Pope, Joseph Addison, Thomas Newton and Samuel Johnson amongst the intellectuals who admired his poetry. He is stated as being second to William Shakespeare as the greatest English poet and writer. RAREB1697KVYA. [Attributes: First Edition]

(LINGUISTICS - YORKSHIRE DIALECT). (BINDINGS - CHARLES LEWIS). MERITON, GEORGE
York: J. White for Francis Hildyard, 1697. Third Edition. 157 x 92 mm. (6 1/4 x 3 5/8"). 2 p.l., 124 pp. Third Edition. ELEGANT DARK BLUE CRUSHED MOROCCO BY CHARLES LEWIS (owner's ink notation, dated 1831, on rear flyleaf), covers bordered by three gilt rules, raised bands, spine compartments with rows of gilt flowers, tan morocco label, gilt-rolled turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt.Front pastedown with engraved armorial bookplate of William Gott; 1906 article reporting on Gott's sale at Sotheby's, mentioning this volume specifically, laid in at front; rear flyleaf with ink note: "Hibberts sale. 1839 / binding by C. Lewis 1831." Wing M-1810; ESTC R19511. Very slight signs of wear to leather, but the attractive binding extremely well preserved and very pleasing. Leaves apparently lightly pressed, minor soiling to title page and last four leaves, small repairs to worming on upper corner and head edge of A2, but a clean and fresh copy internally.First printed in 1685, this is a book with two very different parts, the first being a rowdy and amusing poem on Yorkshire ales, and the second a much more serious and important linguistic work on the Yorkshire dialect--both offered here in a binding by a prominent English craftsman. Scion of a landed county family and author of well-regarded legal treatises, attorney George Meriton (1634-1711) began to create a record of the Yorkshire dialect in 1683, when he published "A York-shire Dialogue in its Pure Natural Dialect." A second edition was printed in 1685, prefaced by the poem "The Praise of York-shire Ale" and with the … [Click Below for Full Description]

LOCKE, John
London: H. Clark, for A. and J. Churchill, at the Black S, 1697. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. 1697 John Locke Letters & Reply to Stillingfleet Human Understanding Philosophy Edward Stillingfleet was a 17th-century British theologian known for his defensive views on Anglicanism. He took exception to many of the views of John Locke, so much so that he and Locke wrote numerous letters to each other discussing important philosophical and religious topics. They argued over ideas of knowledge, substance of ideas, and most importantly the existence and characteristics of God. Curiously, Locke spends most of his letters trying to explain that Stillingfleet's views are muddled and inconsistent. This book is Locke's reply Stillingfleet's rebuttal, published in 1697 in London. It also includes passages relating to Locke's famous "Essay of Human Understanding". This edition is the highly valuable second edition with the misspellings on the title page (see below).
