        The Comical Revenge: Or Love in a Tub. As it is now Acted By Their Majesty's Servants. By Sir George Etherege

      London: Printed by T. Warren for Henry Herringman, and are to be Sold by J. Tonson, F. Saunders, T. Bennet, and K.Bentley, 1697: . 1634?-1691 Quarto, 8.75 x 6.5 inches. Seventh edition. This play first appeared 1664. A-I4, K2. This is a good copy, in boards. The first work of Etherege was The Comical Revenge, or Love in a Tub. It was published in 1664 and may have been produced for the first time late in the previous year. This comedy was an immediate success and Etherege found himself, in a night, famous. Thus introduced to the wits and the fops of the town, Etherege took his place in the select and dissolute circle of Rochester, Dorset and Sedley. On one occasion, at Epsom, after tossing in a blanket certain fiddlers who refused to play, Rochester, Etherege and other boon companions so "skirmished the watch" that they left one of their number thrust through with a pike and were fain to abscond. Etherege married a fortune, it is not certain when, and, apparently for no better reason, was knighted. On the death of Rochester, he was, for some time, the "protector" of the beautiful and talented actress, Mrs. Barry.?63? Ever indolent and procrastinating, Etherege allowed four years to elapse before his next venture into comedy. She Would if She Could, 1668. "The reputation of Sir George Etherege has risen considerably in the present century, and although there is now some danger of his being given an importance that he would have been the first to disown, he undoubtedly stamped his own unemphatic image on the Restoration theater. The comic world of his first two plays, although it is almost as unreal to the modern playgoer as the world of Edwardian musical comedy, is still young and fresh; it has the cool fragrance of those early mornings in the sixteen-sixties that Etherege knew so well as he went rollicking home after a night of pleasure. [.] His gentlemen never do anything that he and his friends would have been ashamed to do themselves. Whatever his moral standards may be, we have at least the satisfaction of feeling (as we do not with Dryden) that he is not consciously lowering them to make an English comedy. [.] (Sutherland)

      1697. . Editio princeps of a popular Arabic text, here published together with the translation in Latin. A rare and curious work, presenting at the one hand a critical text-edition for the Arabic language-student, and at the other hand it is de facto the editio princeps of a manuscript, very popular in the Near and Far East, and containing an Arabic Evangely of the Youth of Christ, belonging to the so-called apocryphe bible literature. Compiled from older apocryphe evangelies, like the Proto-Evangely by Jacobi and the Thomas-Evangely, and enlarged with all sorts of Western religious legends, it was especially popular with the Christian heretic sect of the Nestorians or Chaldeans at Syria, Persia, and Egypt. It also spread to the far East, to China, India and Japan. The editor, Henricus Sike, came from Bremen in Germany, and at the time he was a student at the Utrecht University, where he made a great impression on Reeland, a.o. Later he became professor in Hebrew at Cambridge, in England.- Our copy without title.

Jaquelots vier gegen Spinoza (1632-1677) gerichtete Disseratationen über die Existenz Gottes wurden von Pierre Bayle in dessen Spinoza-Artikel im Dictionnaire Historique et Critique' explizit gelobt. Seinen Prinzipien der Toleranz verpflichtet, weigerte sich Jaquelot auch lange, sich der gegen Pierre Bayle gerichteten Kampagne orthodoxer Kräfte anzuschliessen. "As a convinced Cartesian Jaquelot defended Rene Descartes' ontological proof for the existence of God, assisted by Bernard Lamy, first against Professor Samuel Werenfels of Basel, afterwards agains the journalist Pierre Des Maizeaux, in a long polemic" (Jan de Vet, In Search of Spinoza , in: Van Bunge/Klever, Disguised and overt Spinozism around 1700 [1996], S. 96f.). - Im Jahre 1702 berief König Friedrich I. Jaquelot als Hofprediger nach Berlin, wo er als Kenner der Schriften Baruch de Spinozas und Bayles an den theologisch-philosophischen Gesprächskreisen über das Thema der Vereinbarkeit von doktrinalem Glauben und Wissenschaft teilnahm. Nebst Auseinandersetzungen mit Bayle führte Jaquelots Kritik der Prädestinationslehre zu heftigen Kontroversen mit dem Mathematiker Philippe Naude und dem Theologen Pierre Jurieu. Eine Teilübertragung ins gelehrte Latein durch Francois Halma erschien im Anhang an die Biographie Spinozas und 1744 folgte eine durch das Leben Jaquelots vermehrte Neuausgabe in drei Bänden. - (Rücken eingerissen und wasserfleckig. Gebräunt, stellenweise fleckig). - First edition. One of the chief works of the Cartesian theologian Isaac Jaquelot (1647-1708) who - after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in October 1685 - went via Heidelberg to The Haye where he served as a preacher in the French church. His four dissertations on the existence of God were praised by Pierre Bayle in his article on Spinoza in the celebrated Dictionnaire Historique et Critique'. Jaquelot, unwilling to compormise his toleration principles, for a long time refused to participate in the campaing of orthodox wing against Pierre Bayle, and always stressed his respect for his person and erudition. "As a convinced Cartesian Jaquelot defended Rene Descartes' ontological proof for the existence of God, assisted by Bernard Lamy, first against Professor Samuel Werenfels of Basel, afterwards agains the journalist Pierre Des Maizeaux, in a long polemic" (Jan de Vet, In Search of Spinoza , in: Van Bunge/Klever, Disguised and overt Spinozism around 1700 [1696], S. 96f.). In 1702 Jaquelot came to the court of king Frederic I. at Berlin where he served the French Church and where his views were not without influence. - Browned and somewhat foxed. - Original interim boards, untrimmed.

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), and Joannes Huydecoper (curator), and Gerbrandus Pancras (do.).

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. Part II was written by Commelin's nephew, and successor, Caspar. The work is of an outstanding quality with beautiful plates with 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, 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. British Museum (NH) Cat., p. 371; Stafleu & Cowan, 1187; Nissen BBI, 389; Pritzel, 1833..

        Cronologia historica scritta in lingua Turca, Persiana, & Araba, da Hazi Halife Mustafa, e tradotta nell'idioma Italiano da Gio. Rinaldo Carli [...].

      Venice, Andrea Poletti, 1697.. 4to. (8), 206 pp., final blank f. With woodcut printer's device on t. p. Contemp. vellum with ms. title to spine.. First Italian edition of the "Taqwim al-Tawarikh", an annalistic chronicle from the creation of Man to the year 1648, when it was composed by the famous Turkish polymath Katib Chelebi (1609-57). This is, at the same time, the first printing of any work of Katib Chelebi's in any language: the chronicle was not published in the original mixture of Persian and Ottoman Turkish until 1733, by Müteferrika. "[T]he work originated as an excerpt of [Chelebi's previous effort,] 'Fazlakat aqwal al-ahyar', but continued up to Chelebi's own time [...] Becoming highly popular as an easy reference work, it was continued after Chelebi's death by several authors, including Hüseyin Hezarfenn, Seyhi, and Ibrahim Müteferrika, who published it as the twelfth product of his press [...] Equally popular in Europe as a reference work, it was translated into Latin, Italian, and French. Today, the afterword is the main part of interest, as it contains a brief discussion of the regularities or laws of history, and an initial elaboration of his ideas of causation in history, which are later copies by Na'ima (d. 1128/1716) in his theoretical discussion" (Kafadar, Karateke, Fleischer: Historians of the Ottoman Emprire, s.v.). - Slight worming to upper gutter; binding restored at top edge. Contemp. Italian ownership to title page. - Not a single copy in auction records since 1950. - Babinger, GOW, 197. OCLC 563174142, 457543094.

        Autographed Legal Document Signed

      Boston, 1697. unbound. 2 pages (front and back), 11.75 x 7.25 inches, Superior Court, Boston, April 27, 1697. Exceedingly rare document signed "Elisha Cooke" -- a legal decision concerning the questionable actions of Charles Lidgett, designated Executor of the Last Will and Testament of Mrs. Elizabeth Saffin and Mr. Peter Lidgett, of Boston. The case involved two of the most powerful families in the Colony (Lidgett and Usher) who through marriage had a virtual monopoly of the American timber trade. The suit is brought forth by John Usher and his wife Elizabeth against her uncle Charles Lidgett, whom she believes "did not act in good faith as Executor of her parents' estate." She requests certain property including: "Half the silver, the silver pots, all wearing apparel, rings, brooches, jewels and ornaments" and "Five-thousand five hundred pounds sterling + four thousand pounds in good feasible Bonds + Four-thousand pounds [good Court money of New England]." On the verso Elisha Cooke finds for the plaintiff, ruling: "John Usher and wife Elizabeth shall recover all petitioned in their complaint." Note: during the Boston Revolt (1689), Governor Edmund Andros was placed under arrest and held prisoner in John Usher's home. Those orders came from Elisha Cooke, who ruled for John Usher in the above case. An important document linking the Saffin-Usher-Lidgett families through their extensive intermarriages and their close political association with Elisha Cooke. Natural folds, one small stain, and tape repairs on the back; still very good condition. Colonial American jurist, leader of the 1689 Boston Revolt and head of the "popular party." Aligned with several Judges who took prominent roles in the Salem witch trials, including William Stoughton (Governor of Mass.). In 1696 Cooke, along with former witch trial judges Thomas Danworth and Samuel Sewell, presided over the case of Thomas Maule -- one of the most important trials in American history. The issues that surfaced set a precedent that contributed to the First Amendment principle of separation of church and state.

        An essay towards a general history of whoring. From the creation of the world to the reign of Augustlus,

      London: printed for Richard Baldwin, at the Oxford Arms in Warwick-Lane. 1697 - (which, according to common computation, is 5190 years) and from thence down to the present year 1697. Being a collection of the most remarkable instances of uncleanness, that are to be found in sacred or prophane history during that time. With observations thereon. Vol. I. [all published]. London: printed for Richard Baldwin, at the Oxford Arms in Warwick-Lane. 1697. 8vo. [24],318p. With first and final blank leaves. With table of contents and errata. Rebound in full brown morocco, lettered in gilt, by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. A fine, clean, wide-margined copy. Sole edition. Wing E3296A L, OC; CLC, WF, WSG, Y. An extraordinarily industrious and exhaustive compilation with innumerable instances, in addition to whoring, adultery, polygamy, incest, bestiality, buggery, sodomy, fetishism, paedophilia, and with digressions on gluttony, excessive wine consumption, over-furnishing of houses, gnosticks, games and plays in the theatres: in all an encyclopaedia of mainly sexual misbehaviour provided with a copious index. The antics of the Emperor Tiberius provide plenty of text: "After this Tiberius retir'd to Caprae.There he invented alcoves, which he furnish'd with whores, and catamites, and lewd discoverers of unnatural and beastly postures and motions. He entertained himself by seeing them in three several rows abusing each other, thereby to excite his decay'd appetite. He provided himself with filthy pictures and infamous statues, and furnish'd them with the abominable books of Elephantis, that if any one had a mind to be prodigiously wicked, he might not want a pattern to sin by. He invented also in the woods, walks and grottoes proper for the business of debauchery, where young people of both sexes prostituted themselves.One debauchery, where young people of both sexes prostituted themselves.One incredible piece of debauchery he was guilty of, viz. that he debauch'd young children yet in ignorance, calling them his little Fry, teaching them to play between his Thighs while he swam, to lick and tongue and suck him like infants not yet weaned .And one time, when he was performing Sacrifice, he was so siez'd with a fit of this unnatural passion towards a boy, that carried the censor, that he could scarce restrain himself till the sacrifice was over, and as soon as that was done, he debauched both that boy and his brother; hearing that they upbraided one another with the ignominy afterwards, he ordered both their legs to be broken."

He was big on historical atlases, and produced many editions from 1740 to the early 19th century. All but one of the mapss in this volume are double page, and all are hand colored in outline. Ancient maps of France, Italy (especially attractive), Greece, Palestine, and Egypt are included in this edition.

"Like his brothers, [Lully] was active as a composer, but there was some dispute concerning his talents. According to a document of 1768, he ‘knew hardly anything about music’, a situation which suggests that he had recourse to the services of one or more collaborators. That did not prevent his putting his name to several works at court, and being appointed surintendant de la musique du roi on 7 February 1696. It was reported that he was granted this position, which he shared with Lalande, ‘out of consideration for his father's talents’." Jérôme de La Gorce in Grove online

        Bath memoirs: Or, observations in three and forty years practice, at the Bath, what cures have been there wrought (both by bathing and drinking the waters) by God's blessing

      Bristol: H. Hammond, 1697. 8vo (17.8 cm, 7"). [32], 399, [3] pp. (map lacking). First edition: a wealth of case studies of men, women, and children afflicted by such ailments as Wand'ring Scorbutical Gout, Arthritick Pains, Spina Ventosa, Dead-Palsie, etc., along with => historical information about both the city of Bath and water cures in general. Dr. Pierce (b. ca. 1622, d. 1710) was one of the most prominent Bath physicians of the day; he specialized in supervising mineral water cures, both by drinking and by bathing. Both parts of his Memoirs (the second has a separate title-page but contiguous pagination) are present here, including => a chapter dedicated specifically to women's gynecological ailments including "green sickness" and "virgin distemper"; the final errata leaf is also present. In describing Pierce's accomplishments, specifically the present work, the DNB calls him "probably the first English writer to note the now well-known occurrence of acute rheumatism as a sequel to scarlet fever; and his account of Major Arnot's case [pp. 44–46 here], in which muscular feebleness of the arm followed the constant carrying of a heavy falcon on one fist, is the first suggestion of the condition later described as ‘repetitive strain syndrome.' He carried out post-mortem examinations on some patients, one of which was on the body of Sir Robert Craven, who had a mediastinal tumour; and another on a man with osteomyelitis of the hip. => These original observations entitle him to a high place among English physicians. ESTC R217310; Wing (rev.) P2163. Not in Garrison & Morton. On Pierce, see: Oxford Dictionary of National Biography online. Period-style mottled calf framed and panelled in gilt rolls with gilt-stamped corner fleurons and gilt-stamped central motif, spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label, gilt-ruled raised bands, and gilt-stamped compartment decorations. Lacking the folding map of the city. Preliminary blank with early inked annotation, final (blank) page with "Bath" inked in an early hand. Pages slightly age-toned, otherwise clean.

        A Lady's Religion In a Letter To the honourable My Lady Howard. By a Divine in the Church of England. With a Prefatory Epistle to the same Lady, By a Lay-Gentleman.

      London: Printed for Tho: Warren for Richard Baldwin. 1697 - FIRST EDITION. Small 12mo, 128 x 69 mms., pp. [xxiv], 71 [72 blank], contemporary calf, panelled in gilt, spine gilt in compartments; lower read joint slightly cracked, upper rear joint splitting. With several ownership inscriptions on the front end-papers: "Mary Bowsher/ Jany ye. 29th/ 1789 the gift of miss [?Flagraal]. Emison Bowsher/ the gift of his aunt/ Oct. 1838" on the recto of the front free end-paper, and "Mary Powell/ the gift of her/ Mother/ March 14 1869" on the front paste-down end-paper; and "Mary Bowsher" on the recto of the rear free end-paper, with various scribblings in pencil on the rear end-papers. The "Lay-Gentleman" signs himself "Adeisidæmon," which was the title of a book published in 1709, Adeisidæmon, sive Titus Livius a superstitione vindicatus . Autore J. Tolando. Annexæ sunt ejusdem Origines Judaicæ. It is just possible that Toland is the "Lay-Gentleman" and re-used "Adeisdaemon" twelve years later. Given Toland's literary and religious propensities, he could even have authored the work himself and then have written the preface; or that he knew this work and borrowed the pseudonym` of the author of the preface. In any case, the "Lay-Gentleman" has an agenda that Toland probably would have had some sympathy for, stating that the author "has shewn Religion to be plain, short, and intelligible. And that the knowledge of it depends not upon the helps of Spurious Learning, he has with a deal of genuine Learning. What ought to recommend him most, is, that although he be a Divine, yet he pretends not to make any thing pass upon you by vertue of the bare Authority of his Profession." ESTC R212982 locates copies at BL (2), Bodleian, Cambridge, Lambeth Palace; and Minnesota. The work was reprinted in 1704, 1748 (Foulis Press), 1748 (London: Owen), 1751, and 1753. All copies except the 1748 Owen imprint, which adds other material, are uncommon. For Adeisidæmon, see Robert Sullivan: John Toland and the Deist Controversy (1982) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        MILANO SEMPRE GRANDE NEL PROCURARE LA PROMOZIONE DE? SUOI FIGLI ALLA DIGNITA? DI PADRE E DI PASTORE. Nell?ergere pomposo apparato a riceverli, nel mantenere un filiale ossequio dopo ricevuti. Circonstanze descritte nell?elezione, e nel solenne ingresso fatto in Milano dall?Emin.ssimo signor Cardinale Federico Caccia, suo Arcivescovo, il giorno 11. di Decembre 1696.

      per Marc?Antonio Pandolfo Malatesta (1697). In-8 gr. (mm. 250x175), cartonato muto coevo, pp. 116,(20), ornato da grandi capilett. e finali silografati, con 4 belle tavv. f.t., inc. in rame da Scotti (rifilate), che raffigurano i due archi trionfali. Dedica ?agl?Ill.ssimi signori Vicario, e Sessanta Decurioni della detta città?. Relazione del solenne ingresso a Milano del nuovo arcivescovo, il cardinale Federico Caccia. Le autorità cittadine predisposero due grandi archi, nonostante la difficile situazione economica dello Stato milanese, oppresso dal fiscalismo spagnolo. I due archi, uno presso la Basilica di S. Eustorgio e l?altro nella contrada dei Mercanti d?oro (subito prima dell?ingresso nella piazza del Duomo), furono opera dell?arch. Giovan Battista Quadrio. Tutto l?apparato allegorico degli archi, con le statue, le descrizioni e i dipinti, doveva rappresentare al nuovo arcivescovo la storia e la qualità della Chiesa milanese. I dipinti furono opera di due pittori: Federico Bianchi e Filippo Abbiati, entrambi molto importanti nella storia della pittura milanese. Autore della presente relazione fu un dotto milanese, Baldassarre Paravicini, segretario dei Decurioni della città. Dopo un?ampia relazione sulla nomina di Federico Caccia a vescovo di Milano, si ricorda la sosta del cardinale, il 20 novembre 1696, nella città di Lodi poco prima del suo ingresso in Milano. A Lodi fu accolto da grandi feste, mentre a Milano fervevano i preparativi per l?accoglienza. Il cardinale Caccia entrò in incognito a Milano il giorno 10 dicembre e prese dimora nell?arcivescovado, essendo fissato per il giorno successivo l?ingresso solenne. L?11 dicembre il cardinale raggiunse in carrozza la chiesa di S. Eustorgio, dove vestì gli abiti pontificali e da dove prese inizio la lunghissima e solenne processione che lo accompagnò fino in Duomo. Mirabile fu l?apparato esterno e interno del Duomo, dove, tra una colonna e l?altra e in mezzo a preziosi drappeggi, erano stati esposti i grandi quadri con le storie di S. Carlo Borromeo. Importante e rara opera in "edizione originale". Cfr. Predari, p. 169: ?La prefazione ha molto pregio per le erudite citazioni storiche di tutti i passi d?autori che scrissero con lode di Milano? - Arrigoni ?Milano nelle vecchie stampe?,II,886, con descriz. e illustrazione di un arco trionfale. Esemplare su carta forte, molto ben conservato. ??Il milanese Federico Caccia (1635-1699) non ebbe che due anni di tempo per esercitare effettivamente la sua funzione pastorale. Di lui si ricordano: il rinnovo di alcune disposizioni disciplinari relative ai conventi femmminili (1694 e 1697); la benedizione del ?colosso? di Arona; l?insediamento in cattedrale della statua d?argento dedicata a s. Ambrogio.. Nel 1697 ebbe l?incarico della reggenza della città durante l?assenza del governatore di Milano Don Filippo Guzman.. Il periodo del suo arcivescovato sembra distinguersi soprattutto per l?impulso da lui dato alla edilizia religiosa e per l?esercizio della carità verso i poveri, aperta o discreta, che culminò nelle disposizioni testamentarie con cui lasciò i poveri, eredi dell?intero suo patrimonio??. Così Diz. Biograf. Italiani,XV, p. 754.

        KING ARTHUR. An Heroick Poem. In Twelve Books. To which is annexed, an Index, explaining the names of countrys, citys, and rivers, &c

      London, Awnsham and John Churchil, and Jacob Tonson, 1697.. FIRST EDITION IN 12 BOOKS, 1697. (First edition appeared in ten books in 1695 under title: Prince Arthur). Folio, 330 x 200 mm, 13 x 8 inches, pages (2) (lacks blank before title), xvii, (1) errata, 343, (8) index, bound in full antique panelled calf, blind decoration to covers, rebacked with raised bands, no lettering or label. Covers slightly worn and lightly pitted, small chip to surface on lower cover, corners slightly worn, inner paper hinges cracked, small pale water stain to title page, light crease to lower corner of title page and next few pages, slight worming to lower margin of title page persisting but decreasing to page 195, small pale damp stain to lower inner margin from page 335 to the end of the index, otherwise contents bright and clean. A very good tight copy. Sir Richard Blackmore (1654-1729) was a physician and a poet with a passion for writing epics. He supported the Glorious Revolution, and his first epic Prince Arthur (1695) was a celebration of William III. The poem was based on the form of Virgil's The Aeneid and the subject matter of Geoffrey of Monmouth's Historia Regum Britanniae. It told of the Celtic King Arthur opposing the invading Saxons and taking London, which was a transparent encoding of William III opposing the "Saxon" James II and taking London. William made Blackmore physician-in-ordinary (a position he would hold with Queen Anne as well), gave him a gold medal, and knighted him in 1697. Among Blackmore's admirers were John Locke and Dr Johnson who did him the honour of writing his life for his Lives of the Poets. Blackmore's next epic, King Arthur, has the same hero "yet 'tis another entire poem" (author's Preface), not as some have stated an enlarged reworking of the Prince Arthur. It takes different episodes of his life from Geoffrey of Monmouth, namely the expedition to invade France and the conquest of Paris. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING.
