        The True Nature of Imposture Fully Displayed in the Life of Mahomet. With a Discourse Annexed, for the Vindicating of Christianity from this Charge; Offered to the Consideration of the Deists of the Present Age ... The Second Edition Corrected.

      London, Printed for William Rogers, at the Sun against St. Dunstan's Church, in Fleetstreet, 1697. Two parts in one volume, 8vo. Near contemporary sprinkled calf with raised bands; pp. [2], xxiii, [5], 162; 180; wear to extremities; internally, apart from a few spots a very clean and good copy. The dean of Norwich was well-versed in Arabic and Hebrew and 'his main fame as a writer has rested on two frequently reprinted works, his Life of Mahomet (1697) and his Connection (1716-18). The former's title states its purpose - The True Nature of Imposture Fully Displayed in the Life of Mahomet - and the life itself is followed by a long Letter to the Deists identifying seven marks of imposture chargeable on 'Mahometism' but not on Christianity. Prideaux's learned footnotes and bibliography of thirty-six Arabic authorities imply original research in manuscript sources; but, as P. M. Holt shows, everything derives from printed editions (with Latin translations) or citations and references in Christian writers' (ODNB). ESTC R7105.

        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.

      Schnurrer, Bibliotheca Arabica 412; STCN (8 copies); Zenker, Bibliotheca Orientalis 1239. 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.

Bound in full speckled brown sheepskin. Back tooled raised. Part of title in brown morocco. Torn head cap, with a portion of the first well. Numerous gashes on boards. 2 corners bumped and partially stripped. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Reliure en pleine basane brune mouchetée. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin brun. Coiffe de tête arrachée, avec une partie du premier caisson. Nombreuses estafilades sur les plats. 2 coins émoussés, et partiellement dénudés. Ce manuel du commerce fut mainte fois réédité, et il est remarquablement complet et très varié ; plus qu'un manuel, c'est un guide, car il n'est pas sans critique sur les règles commerciales, l'auteur possèdant une fine analyse juridique des acteurs du commerce. Au delà d'une vocation didactique essentielle, on distingue une volonté éthique fondamentale de la part de Savary. On trouve dans le livre des chapitres sur la Compagnie des Indes orientales, mais aussi sur le commerce avec les colonies françaises au Canada, au Sénégal, sur le commerce à Smyrne.. Une table des matières très précise permet de retrouver dans l'ouvrage l'ensemble des sujtes traités. Savary fut le premier à demander aux banques et aux entreprises d'enregistrer leurs transactions lors de l'ordonnance sur le commerce de 1673, ordonnance dont il fut rendu responsable par Colbert. On sait qu'après avoir amassé une grande fortune dans le négoce, il devint Fermier des domaines (nommé par Fouquet), puis Colbert l'appela au Conseil des réformes pour le commerce.

        Satires of Decimus Junius Juvenalis. Translated into English Verse by Mr. Dryden, and several other Eminent Hands. Together with the Satires of Aulus Persius Flaccus. Made English by Mr. Dryden. To Which Is Prefixid a Discourse Concerning the Original and Progress of Satire... by Mr. Dryden.

      London: Jacob Tonson, 1697. Early issue. Adorned with sculptures, being sixteen finely engraved copper plates by Hollar, including the frontispiece, to illustrate each of the Satires and one additional engraved bust of Persius. Also with engraved half-titles to each of the Satires. 8vo, contemporary full speckled calf, sometime lont ago rebacked to period style with the spine featuring gilt ruled raised bands, one compartment with a dark green morocco label lettered and ruled in gilt, endleaves renewed. xo, 501, [3] pp. A well preserved copy. Some minor toning or foxing, more so to the title and frontispiece, binding with some normal age evidence. AN IMPORTANT TRANSLATION OF ONE OF THE GREAT CLASSICAL TEXTS. Jacob Tonson published The Satires of Decimus Junius Juvenalis and Aulus Persius Flaccus originally in 1693. Tonson assembled this complete translation of Juvenal's Satires by ?various hands?, but numbers 1, 3, 6, 10, and 16 were all done by Dryden himself. Number 7 was done by his son Charles, and 14 by his son John. The complete translation of Persius is by Dryden alone, and Dryden also wrote the substantial preface, the ?Discourse concerning the original and progress of satire?, in which he explains the history of the genre and gives a critique of its principal Latin practitioners. He also provides reflections on its modern use. While the sixteen Satires are translations rather than imitations, and generally preserved the original Roman allusions, there are a number of turns of phrase which reflect satirically upon William III. Doubtless both the tragic pessimism of Junius' tenth satire, and Persius's Stoicism in the face of Neronian terror, had a contemporary resonance for Dryden. No reader of Junius? third satire could avoid hearing the translator's voice within its lines. The engraved plates are much in the same style as the somewhat more famous plates in Dryden?s ?Virgil?, which was first published the same year as this edition.

Guglielmini's (1655-1710), approach to hydraulics was through extensive field observation, and Gamba praises the work not only for its classical hydraulics, but for the clarity of its verbal and mathematical expression.

Beschryvinge en curieuse afbeeldingen van rare vreemde Africaansche, Oost-West-Indische en andere gewassen vertoont in den Amsterdamsche Kruyd-Hof. Met groote moeyte en arbeid op stads-kosten in vele jaren aangewend, en by een versameld door Casparus Commelin M. D. en botanicus horti Medici.

      - Amsterdam, P. Blaeu, J. Blaeu and [the widow of] Abraham van Someren (1697, 1701). Two parts in two. Folio (near matching at 39.8 x 26.2 cm and 40.0 x 25.5 cm). Part I: Latin half title; Latin title in two colours with title vignette; Dutch title (do.); engraved allegorical frontispiece showing the virgin of Amsterdam in a foreign (subtropical) landscape amidst exotic people offering plants as gifts; coat-of-arms of Joannes Huydecoper, and that of Joannes Commelin, dedication leaf to the mayors of Amsterdam; [8], 220 pp., 110 engraved plates showing 112 numbered plants with explanatory text leafs in Latin and Dutch, each with floral vignette at the end of each description. Contemporary vellum. Part II: Latin half title, allegorical frontispiece, showing Theophrastus teaching botany in the real Hortus garden, with the houses along the Nieuwe Herengracht canal in the background, Dutch title page, dedication page (to the mayors of Amsterdam, and to the trustees of the Hortus). Coat-of-arms of Franciscus de Vroede (senator of the Hortus), Joannes Huydecoper (curator) and Gerbrandus Pancras (do.). [4], 224, [4] pp., and 113 plates, numbered up to 112 with fig. 4 in two different states (on recto and verso of one leaf), as intended. Thus, in total: two frontispieces, five coats-of-arms and 225 numbered plates on 222 leaves.l The plants described and figured were collected in Asia, the Americas and South Africa (Cape of Good Hope) by crew members of the merchant ships of the Dutch East and West India companies and donated to the Amsterdam Horticultural Garden, of which Jan Commelin was the director. Jan Commelin (1629-1692) died before the publication of Part I of his manuscript, and this is acknowledged on the title pages of Part I. As further explained there, the botanist, zoologist and anatomist Frederik Ruysch (1638-1731) edited the work and added some annotations. Commelin's nephew and successor, Caspar, wrote Part II. The work is of an outstanding quality, with beautiful plates in deep shades of grey and black. There are 20 plates depicting Aloes, but also many more exciting exotic plants. Part I with a few small, marginal spots, a few plates slightly age toned, but with strong impressions. Small hole in explanatory leaf to plate 79, some minor soiling to p. 218, contemporary handwriting (the Latin names of the species) in the margin of several plates. Part II with repair to the lower corner of fig. 88, traces of slight worming in the lower inner margin, but this is really unobtrusive. A faint half-circular water stain to outer margin of pp. 205-224 and index, somewhat stronger on figs 105-107, but also hardly distracting. In all, a very good copy of this rare and important work on the plants kept in the Amsterdam Hortus Botanicus, which still exists to this day at its original location. Nissen quotes a wrong number of plates, probably counting frontispieces as well. This copy is super complete with 225 numbered figs on 222 leaves, which is one plate more than usually quoted as the maximum, but that is probably because fig. 4 (Part II) has two versions, meaning there are two figures displayed on one leaf (the leaf was printed on both sides), the only plate that was done that way in this entire work. It remains unclear if all copies have this particular double plate, since very few mention it in their descriptions nor is there any remark by the bibliographers on this topic. Furthermore almost all plates show one species, and the figure number equals the number of plates, except that figs 42-44 (Part I) are on one plate, for a total of 112 numbered figs on 110 leaves. BM(NH) Cat., p. 371; Nissen BBI, 389; Pritzel, 1833; Stafleu & Cowan, 1187.

George Sale (1697, Canterbury, Kent, England 1736, London, England) was an Orientalist and practising solicitor, best known for his 1734 translation of the Qur'an into English. He was also author of The General Dictionary, in ten volumes, folio. He was educated at the King's School, Canterbury, and in 1720 became a student of the Inner Temple. It is known that he trained as a solicitor in his early years but took time off from his legal pursuits, returning at need to his profession. Sale was an early member of the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge. Sale became seriously ill for eight days before his death, and died at Surrey Street, The Strand, of fever on November 13, 1736. Sale was buried at St. Clement Danes. His family consisted of a wife and five children. He took the time to apply himself in the study of the eastern and other languages, both ancient and modern. Carolus Dadichi, the king's interpreter, helped Sale in his studies of oriental dialects. Sale reputedly spent 25 years in Arabia, thus acquiring his knowledge of the Arabic language and customs this was the basis of Voltaire's statements in the Dictionnaire Philosophique (articles Alcoran, Arot and Marot). On the other hand Harold Lyon Thomson, writing in the Dictionary of National Biography, stated that he never left his native country. In 1734, Sale published the translation of the Qur'an, dedicated to John Lord Carteret. Sale provided numerous notes and a "Preliminary Discourse" which was manifest with in-depth knowledge of Eastern habits, manners, traditions, and laws. Voltaire bestowed high praise on Sale's version of the Koran. Sale did not, however, place Islam at an equal level with Christianity.He stated: "As Mohammed gave his Arabs the best religion he could, preferable, at least, to those of the ancient pagan lawgivers, I confess I cannot see why he deserves not equal respect, though not with Moses or Jesus Christ, whose laws came really from heaven, yet with Minos or Numa, notwithstanding the distinction of a learned writer, who seems to think it a greater crime to make use of an imposture to set up a new religion, founded on the acknowledgment of one true God, and to destroy idolatry, than to use the same means to gain reception to rules and regulations for the more orderly practice of heathenism already established." Sale's translation of the Qu'ran has been reprinted into modern times. In January 2007, Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to the United States Congress, was sworn in on an old edition of Sale's Koran, donated to the Library of Congress in the early 19th century by Thomas Jefferson. Sale was also a corrector of the Arabic New Testament (1726) issued by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge. He acquired a library with valuable rare manuscripts of Persian, Turkish, and Arabic origins (which is now held in the Bodleian Library, Oxford). (Wikipedia)

He was the first of the great British surgeons." (Power, 198-201, quoted in ONDB) This is Wiseman's chief work, based on his experiences tending the Royalist armies. "For each topic Wiseman examines the anatomy, pathology, etiology, diagnosis, prognosis and management, adding selected case histories or observations from his vast experience. These personal observations, some brief and some in extensive detail, concern 660 individual patients, a weight of evidence which contrasts sharply with the absence or plagiarism of case histories in many contemporaneous publications. These case histories constitute a rich and unique historical record of surgical reality in seventeenth-century Britain...." (ONDB) NLM/Krivatsy 13087; Wing 3106A. See G-M 5573 and Norman 2253.

        La Liguria o Stato della Republica di Genova con altri Stati adiacenti

      Roma 1697 - Grande carta geografica di tutta la Liguria, che comprende anche parte delle regioni confinanti, Piemonte, Emilia Romagna e Toscana. La carta è basata su quella, più grande, di Giuseppe Chafrion, ed è incisa da Antonio Barbey. I centri abitati principali sono rappresentati in pianta. Sono distinti arcivescovadi, vescovadi, feudi della chiesa e feudi imperiali. Tre scale grafiche in miglia d'Italia, miglia genovesi, leghe di Francia. La carta è dedicata al cardinale Giovanni Battista Spinola, e fu pubblicata Mercurio Geografico, raccolta di carte edita a Roma tra il 1660 ed il 1730 dalla tipografia de Rossi. Nel corso degli anni l’atlante fu arricchito da un numero sempre maggiore di carte; le aggiunte del tardo ‘700, come questa, sono pertanto molto più rare delle carte presenti dalle prime edizioni. Incisione in rame, leggere ossidazioni ed una gora d'acqua in alto, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Map taken from the "Mercurio Geografico", a collection of maps printed in Rome between 1660 and 1730 by De Rossi. Along the years the Atlas has been enriched with many plates; those added at the end of the XVIII century, like the present one, are much more rare to find than the maps of the first editions. Copperplate, in excellent condition. Dimensioni 440 1050mm

        Prospetto del Casale di Carroceto. ampliato con vastissima fabrica di legname nella forma presente in occasione del passaggio che fece a Nettuno la Santita di N. S. Papa Innocenzo XII

      Roma 1697 - Rara incisione che raffigura l'ampliamento del casale di proprietà del principe Giovan Battista Borghese, in occasione della storica visita di papa Innocenzo XII, il 22 aprile del 1697. Come raccontato in diverse cronache anonime dell'epoca, quel giorno del 1697 il Papa, diretto ad Anzio per l'inaugurazione del nuovo porto neroniano che aveva fatto fortificare, si fermò a metà strada nella tenuta di Carroceto, allora appartenente al principe Giovanna Battista Borghese che l'aveva comprata dai Colonna. Con grande stupore di tutta la corte papale, si scopre che il rozzo casale è sostituito da "un gran palazzo alla Regia di tavole tutto dipinto", la cui costruzione ha sacrificato un’intera selva. La stupefacente reggia effimera in legno e tela incorpora il casale e si articola in un corpo centrale a due piani e nove assi di finestre, con due porte –una finta e una vera-, sormontate dallo stemma papale; ai lati due ali a un piano con sette assi. L’edificio polarizza un accampamento, geometricamente ordinato, capace di alloggiare e rifocillare tutto il convoglio, animali inclusi. Su progetto dell’architetto dei Borghese Tommaso Mattei, allievo di Fontana, e con il significativo apporto di Domenico Botta, magister ludi, dei principi ospiti, sono allestiti ricoveri per i servitori, i cavalleggeri e le guardie; tettoie per quattrocentotrenta cavalli, forniti di biade e di paglia, oltre che di un abbeveratoio appositamente montato. Nel piazzale sono approntati forni, nevaie, grotte per i vini, due fontane con vino bianco e rosso, cucine, credenze e bottiglierie distinte per i diversi gruppi del seguito. Ai cardinali e ai nobili sono destinati i due appartamenti speculari al piano terra, muniti di dispensa, sala da pranzo e stanza di riposo. Il primo piano è per l’appartamento del Papa. I soffitti delle stanze del papa, dipinti dal pittore bolognese Giovanni de Alesandris, affiancato per i fregi dall’indoratore Silvestro Ferdichini, celebrano la Chiesa, le virtù del pontefice e quelle del munifico ospite. Il colossale apparato è costato al principe non meno di ventimila scudi: una cifra iperbolica, se si confronta con il finanziamento per i lavori condotti al porto dall’architetto Alessandro Zinaghi, che ammonta a quindicimila scudi!Il papa soggiorna poche ore a Carroceto, dove sosterà anche al ritorno, quindi prosegue per Nettuno, dove lo attende lo sfarzo mirabile del palazzo del principe Giovan Battista Pamphili, che ha convocato, per l’occasione, i migliori musici di Roma. E affinché la memoria di tale fantastico apparato non si dissolva con la sua caduca fisicità, il principe commissiona ad Alessandro Specchi la veduta panoramica del palazzo e il suo spaccato prospettico con gli arredi minuziosamente raffigurati. I due disegni, tradotti in stampa da Domenico de’Rossi, sono alla base di due quadri del pittore tedesco Cristiano Reder, conservati in palazzo Borghese a Roma. (Claudia Conforti, "Due brevi viaggi di Innocenzo XII"). Acquaforte, datata in lastra in basso a sinistra, impressa du due fogli di carta vergata uniti, applicati su carta vergata di rinforzo. Mancanza nella legenda del margine inferiore, nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. Opera estremamente rara. A rare engraved-view of the temporary architecture of Tommaso Mattei and furnishings commissioned by prince Giovan Battista Borghese for the Casale Borghese in Carroceto, to celebrate the visit of Pope Innocent XII on 22 April 1697. Examines views of the festivities-engravings by Alessandro Specchi after Mattei's drawings, and paintings attributed to Christian Reder. Etching, dated in the plate lower left, printed on two sheets of contemporary paper joined, repaired areas with loss of text, generally in good condition. Very rare. Marigliani "Anzio e i suoi porti." pp. 20/24. Dimensioni 700 595mm [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Parte Occidentale del Mediterraneo /Carta Maritima della parte orientale del Mare Mediterraneo

      Venezia 1697 - Due grandi portolani del Mediterraneo, uno dedicato alla parte occidentale, l’altro a quella orientale, del capitano genovese Francesco Maria Levanto, qui nell'edizione di Vincenzo Maria Coronelli. I due portolani di Levanto, furono pubblicati ad apertura de "Lo specchio del mare", atlante-portolano del Mediterraneo pubblicato nella sua prima edizione a Genova nel 1664 ed in seconda edizione nel 1679. Nonostante l’opera non avesse avuto grande fortuna all’epoca, forse perché riconosciuta come poco originale dai cartografi coevi, il Coronelli – che quasi certamente non conosceva il modello e le derivazioni nordiche – la volle inserire nel suo Atlante Veneto, come ultimo volume dell’edizione del 1698. Il cartiglio della parte occidentale reca la dedicata al conte Fabrizio Antonio Monsignani, erudito forlivese e membro dell'Accademia dei Filergiti. Ciascun portolano, misura mm 510 x 402. Splendidi esemplari, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Ottimi esemplari, bella impressione, fogli completi dei margini bianchi, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Two large maps of Mediterranea sea - one for the western area and one for the eastern area, prepared in the Portolano style, by Francesco Maria Levanto, in the edition by Vincenzo Maria Coronelli. The two Levanto's maps, were published in his "Lo Specchio del Mare" (The Mirror of the Sea) the portolan atlas of Mediterranean published in its first edition in Genoa in 1664 ,and the second edition in 1679. Despite the atlas didn't has a great success at the time, perhaps because it was recognized as unoriginal by contemporary cartographers, Coronelli - who almost certainly did not know the model and the Nordic plates - wanted to include the atlas as the last volume in the 1698 edition of his Atlante Veneto. The cartouche of the western part bears the dedicated to Count Fabrizio Antonio Monsignani, a member of the Academy of Filergiti. Each plater, consisting of two sheets joined together, measuring 510 x 402 mm. Magnificient examples, in perfect condition. Dimensioni [Attributes: First Edition]
