Etherege, Sir George
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.ˇ63ˇ 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Miege, Guy
Henry Van Bulderen, Hague. Hardback. Good - Acceptable. Leather covered boards very worn at edges. Spine leather missing, but raised bands are present and intact. Hinges are somewhat weak 4th edition with some improvements. Best known for his Great French Dictionary in 1687, this edition of 1697, while still large, was a more portable and useful book. There are some small areas of smudges of edges of pages, probably from candles as book does not smell of smoke. Hinges are somewhat weak, but all pages solid and attached. Pages are clean, no foxing.Two very interesting bookplates. 1. John Earl of Loudown,1705-1782, probably the John Campbell who commanded a Scottish regiment in 1745 in the rising against the Jacobites and commanded British forces in French and British rivalry in America. 2. Second bookplate is earlier- Hugh Earle of Loudoun Lord Machline etc. Died 1731 and probably the original owner of the book. This book is the shorter version of the Great French Dictionary. The author in his preface says it is only the words, no phrases, and he hopes it "may be of some use to beginners, travellers, and those whose purse cannot reach to the price of the Great One." Very rare book on late 1600s French, enhanced with some highly interesting bookplates. . Fair. 1697. 4th edition.

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.

Amsterdam, Paul Marret, 1697. 2 parties en un volume in-12, plein vélin ivoire, titre et date dorés, tranches rouges (rel. fin XIXe), (1) f., (4), 335, (1) p., frontispice gravé. Edition originale, composée de dix nouvelles historiques, qui connut un véritable succès de best-seller. "Ecrit en pleine maturité par une femme de lettres qui avait déjà derrière elle une quinzaine d'ouvrages de genres variés, ce recueil de dix nouvelles nous conduit de l'Espagne à la Rome des papes, en passant par la France, le Portugal et la cour du grand Turc. Chemin faisant, nous rencontrons Auguste, Dagobert, Soliman, Alexandre Borgia, Henri IV... et bien sûr leurs "favorites", femmes de pouvoir bien décidées à survivre dans des époques violentes où la pitié n'a pas sa place. Célibataire sans fortune, protestante exilée après la révocation de l'Edit de Nantes, Anne de La Roche-Guilhen pratique la critique aussi bien que la romance, dans un mélange de galanterie et de noirceur typique d'une époque désenchantée, qui rappelle la nôtre à bien des égards" (Els Hôhner, "Université de Saint-Étienne").

[MERITON, George]
By G.M. Gent. 2 p.l., 124 pp. Small 8vo, early 19th-cent. blue morocco by C. Lewis (title a little dusty, small portion of outer upper corner of title carefully renewed at an early date), triple gilt fillet round sides, spine richly gilt, orange morocco lettering piece on spine, a.e.g. York: J. White for F. Hildyard, 1697. Third edition and best edition, greatly enlarged, of this important contribution to the study of contemporary northern English dialect and pronunciation. George Meriton (1634-ca. 1711), was a legal writer and owner of Castle Leavington in the North Riding of Yorkshire. "In 1683 he published A York-shire Dialogue in its Pure Natural Dialect at York. A second edition appeared in 1685, also at York, with his poem 'The Praise of York-shire Ale' and a pioneering dialect glossary, preceded in print only by John Ray's; a third edition with additional dialect material was published in 1697."-ODNB. The book is divided into four parts. The first part (pp. 1-78) provides the poem, a lively narrative of a Rabelaisian jaunt by Bacchus and his court to Northallerton, Easingwold and York, consuming astonishing quantities of the "humming Yorkshire ale." The second (pp. 79-81) is entitled "Some Observations concerning the Dialect and various Pronunciation of words in the East-Riding of Yorkshire." The third part (pp. 83-85) is a "Collection of Significant and usefull Proverbs, some of which are apropriated to York-shire" and the fourth part (pp. 89-124) is the glossary.

BREMER, Johannes Christianus.
Literis Hakianis, Wittenberg, 1697. Unbound pamphlet. Small quarto. (7 1/2 x 6 inches). (16) p. Sewn, paper backstrip. No wrappers. Title page serves as front wrapper. The printed text of a disputation delivered to the University of Wittenberg on November 6, 1697, by one Johannes Christianus Bremer. The text is essentially a refutation of some of the arguments presented by Balthasar Bekker in "Die Betoverde Weereld." Bremer seems to argue the existence of demons and of their power and influence in earthly affairs, and suggests that to reject this is ipso facto to deny the existance of angels, and also of God, and to plunge into unholy atheism. Extremely scarce. The full title reads "Theses adversus Balth. Bekkerum circa operationes Daemonum in libro, quem vocat Die Bezauberte Welt gravissime errantem directae quas placido eruditorum examini d. 6. Nov. a. 1697 subjicient praeses M. Andr. Kunad, et respondens Johannes Christianus Bremer Belticensis Sax." No copies in Caillet, or the KTO-published Cornell Witchcraft Collection Catalogue, nor referenced by Thorndike.

ALLARD, Carol (1648-1709)
Amsterdam, 1697. Copper-engraved map. Small inset of New Zealand within the cartouche. Rare issue of Allard's 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 map of America by Allard is derived from that of Frederick de Wit, c. 1675" (Burden). Significantly, however, Allard corrects the mapping of the Great Lakes and Mississippi Valley. "The former are entirely re-engraved as are the nearby waterways off the St. Lawrence River including Lake Champlain, which is moved south-west. Lake Superior is now enclosed to the west as is Lac des Puans, which is renamed Lac Illinois, placing the previous toponym correctly in Green Bay. To the west an entirely new and more recent depiction of the Mississippi valley is inserted. This is derived from that of Louis Hennepin ... published in 1697" (Burden).This is Burden's second state, with a ruled border surrounding the New Zealand inset but without the textual descriptions of climates between the neat line and gradients. It is the first state to show the important corrections noted above. Beyond the cartographic importance, 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.Burden, The Mapping of North America II: 724; McLaughlin, The Mapping of California as an Island , 132; Tooley, "California as an Island," in The Mapping of America65.

BLACKMORE, RICHARD M. D.:
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 ho … [Click Below for Full Description]

The author, a captain in the King’s Life Guards, published this series of letters reputed to be between and English peer and a French official between 1676 and 1689, claiming them to be secret diplomatic transactions previously concealed and now divulged. Modern historians are unsure and opinions conflicting in how much accuracy or reliance can be placed on the text. The author wrote a number of other historical works. [Attributes: First Edition]

Of Gun-Shot Wounds. VII. Of Fractures and Luxations. VIII. Of the Lues Venerea. London: For B. T. and L. M. and sold by W. Keblewhite, and J. Jones, 1697. Folio. [14], 563, [14] p., including the half title A1. Eighteenth-century paneled calf, very skillfully rebacked retaining original gilt spine, period-style label. Tiny (half-inch) repaired tear in lower margin of third leaf, else a remarkably fine, fresh copy. With the contemporary ownership signature of Stewart Sparkes on half title. Third edition of an important medical text first published in 1676. "Wiseman is our surgical Sydenham. He by his skill and personality helped to raise the whole status of surgery. 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 310 … [Click Below for Full Description]
