BAKER, Henri.
[20], 300, [16]; [16], 498, [14] pp.Henry Baker (1698-1774) was a typical 18th century polymath: natural historian, poet, translator of Molière, editor of a popular periodical and prolific correspondent. He was a co-founder of the Royal Society of Arts and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Antiquaries. Baker's influence on the development and popularization of the microscope was considerable and he wrote two important books on the subject. The first, The microscope made easy, published in November 1742, was a bestseller.Eleven years after the first edition, Baker published Employment for the microscope (1753), humbly advising a critical assessment of the book's contents and further study, and giving descriptions of many observations of crystallization, little water-animals and insects. He also describes several microscopes made by Van Leeuwenhoek and Cuff. As an appendix Baker includes his study of the Polype. In it he records his attempts to repeat the experiments of Abraham Trembley who, four years earlier, had cut up fresh water polyps (Hydra vulgaris) and found that the parts regrew to form entire animals. The present copy is the first Dutch edition.With a long cut across the spine and back board of volume 2, head of the spine of volume 1 bumped, paper fort he tekst of volume 2 slightly browned, not affecting the plates. Otherwise in very good condition.l Nissen, ZBI, 202; G. Potter, “Henry Baker (1698-1774)”, in: Mod. philol, 29 (1932), pp. 310-321; Welcome, I, 88; L.L.

Amsterdam: Chez J. Louis de Lorme Librairie sur le Rockin, à l'enseigne de la Liberté, 1698. Amsterdam: Chez J. Louis de Lorme Librairie sur le Rockin, à l'enseigne de la Liberté, 1698. Very good.. Early full speckled calf, elaborately gilt stamped spine, tan and black spine labels. All edges stained red. Engraved frontispiece of the sacking of an indigenous village. Separate title page for Montaubon (pagination continuous), 2-page publisher's catalogue at rear. [10], 402, [2] pages. Inked label at head of spine, monogram stamp on title page. Front joint worn and cracking but holding, minor expert paper repair at margin of title page: interior otherwise crisp. Beautiful late 17th-century edition of a central primary source in the conquest of the Americas, bound somewhat incongruously with an early edition of French buccaneer Montaubon's 1695 voyage to the Caribbean. Las Casas first sailed to the West Indies when he was only eighteen, participating in the brutal Spanish occupation of Cuba. Upon his conversion, he dedicated his life to fighting the devastation caused by himself and his countrymen. This publication contains a French translation of four tracts from his most famous work, A SHORT ACCOUNT OF THE DESTRUCTION OF THE INDIES, which was first published in nine tracts in 1552. The book documented Spanish depredations in the New World in an attempt to persuade the Spanish government to change its policies. Today, Las Casas is regularly cited in modern legislation attempting to rename Columbus Day.Las Casas is bound with Etienne de Montauban's account of his 1695 voyage … [Click Below for Full Description]

Raleigh, Sir Walter
Printed for Mat. Gillyflower, London, 1698. FIRST EDITION, 8vo, pp. [liv], 415, [1] + engraved frontispiece portrait. Errata leaf discarded. Stubs of cancels visible before H4, H7, P2, P7. Contemporary calf panelled in blind, printed waste used as pastedowns. Poor-quality paper browned and foxed, a few other marks. A little rubbed, edges a touch worn, rebacked with new black morocco label. The scarce first edition of this popular abridgment of Sir Walter Raleigh's important 'History', compiled while he was in the Tower of London. The compiler was the prolific Laurence Echard (1672-1730), translator of Roman comedy and author of several works of history which went through multiple editions. This one was reprinted twice within the next few years, the second edition adding Philip Raleigh's name to the title-page. It is perhaps oddly scarce in this edition: ESTC locates copies in half a dozen locations in the UK and a similar number outside, with another issue (variant imprint) in just four copies. ESTC R8185.

Middelburgum Kopergravure, uitgegeven door Frederick de Wit na 1698, later met de hand gekleurd. De plattegrond komt uit de zeldzame stedenatlas van De Wit "Perfecte Aftekeningen der steden van de XVII Nederlandsche provincien in plattegronden"?. De plattegrond lijkt sterk op de plattegrond uit het Stedenboek van Joan Blaeu. Na de brand die uitgeverij Blaeu in 1672 verwoestte, had Frederick de Wit een deel van de koperen platen uit de boedel van Blaeu overgenomen en gaf deze onder eigen naam uit. Prijs: Euro950,- (incl. 21% BTW).

EHON - UKIYOZO^SHI] Hayashi RAZAN, author
1698. [EHON - UKIYOZO^SHI] Hayashi RAZAN, author. Eari KAIDAN ZENSHO 5 volumes Edo & Kyo^to, Genroku 11 [1698]. 25.1 x 17.6 cm. String-bound, Japanese-style, fukuro-toji. Hayashi Razan was the Confucian tutor of the third Tokugawa shogun and translated the KAIDAN ZENSHO from Chinese sources in 1627, adding some Japanese legendary material and domesticating the tales in general. It circulated in manuscript for most of the 17th century as a very influential literary genre source. It appears to have first been printed in Kyo^to and Edo as this set was, in Genroku 11. It is the seminal work of the "spooky story" genre in Japan. Illustrated with b+w woodblock in the tradition of the ukiyo zo^shi. In volumes 1, 3, and 5, almost all of the illustrations have a small bit of red color carefully added by hand as an accent to one or two elements in the illustration, such as a hair ornament, a sleeve lining, a hat, the tongue of a ferocious wolf, etc. Our copy is a bit thumbed, but in a nice impression. Bound in original worn covers with printed paper title labels, all in a custom clasped chitsu case.

Paris: Dans l'Isle du Palais, fur Quay de l'Horloge, 1698. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. 'A Relation of a Voyage' is a 1698 book recounting the events of François Froger's voyage around the world. In 1695, Froger and crew, under the leadership of Captain de Gennes, departed for the Strait of Magellan, making notable stops in Brazil and Caribbean islands. While they hoped to establish a French settlement near the Strait of Magellan, they ultimately encountered pirates and Indians, and discovered riches in the Americas! Froger also makes note of his interactions with slave traders, discovery of plants and animals, and even sea battles that he had to endure. A fascinating work of adventure! According to Hill, "This is an account of ... an expedition to found a French settlement in the Strait of Magellan, proposed by French buccaneers who settled there. The project failed. This account of the expedition is especially noteworthy for details of natural history subjects and for the accuracy of Froger's charts. [Attributes: First Edition]

Seventeenth-century Pennsylvania indenture conveying 250 acres of land on Chester Creek in Chester County originally deeded to Edward Blake by William Penn, Propriatary and Governor, in 1681. The 1698 indenture is between merchant Richard Halliwell of New Castle, Delaware and widow Hannah Blake of Philadelphia, co-executors of Edward Blake,¹ on the one part, and Thomas Carthrite, yeoman of Ashton Township, Chester County, on the other part. The document notes the metes and bounds of the land, the date of its original conveyance from William Penn in 1681, and the Chester County Court's permission given to Halliwell and Blake, as executors, to sell the land. Later, in 1789, this land would be transferred to the jurisdiction of the newly-created Delaware County, Pennsylvania. The indenture was signed, sealed, and delivered by Halliwell and Blake on August 16, 1698; it was also signed by two witnesses, Ro. ffrench and John Cadwallader.

[72], 1-312, [10], 313-506 pp. Second edition of an important account relating of voyages through the largely unexplored interior of northern America, around what is now the U.S.-Canadian border, published one year after the first edition (Utrecht 1697) and with the same engravings. Louis Hennepin, a Franciscan monk from Ath, served as chaplain on an expedition led by René-Robert de La Salle (1643-1687) to the Great Lakes region "and became the first to describe the Niagara Falls" (Howgego), seen and drawn in 1678. With La Salle he travelled to the Illinois River by way of Lake Huron, Green Bay, Lake Michigan and the St Joseph River. La Salle returned to Montreal for supplies, but Hennepin, together with two companions, continued travelling, ascending the Mississippi as far as present day Minneapolis (in what is now called Hennepin County), where he was captured by the Sioux in April 1680. During a hunting expedition with the Sioux, Hennepin sighted St Anthony Falls. In September 1680 they released him and his companions, who returned to Quebec and from there to France in 1682. The two folding views, first published in the 1697 edition and here printed from the same plates, are the first published image of Niagara Falls and the first engraving of an American bison (American buffal … [Click Below for Full Description]

Each sura is given first in Arabic, then in Latin translation, followed by notes and then the refutation.

With a drop-title on the first page, 12 numbered illustrations printed from 3 engraved plates, and a notice of another book on the last page. Modern pink paper wrappers. pp. 261-280. An unrecorded Italian translation of a French treatise on the pruning and grafting of the limbs of fruit trees, first published as Traité de la taille des arbres, & de la maniere de les bien elever (Celle, André Holwein, 1692), with 12 engraved illustrations from 3 copperplates that depict trees and methods how to graft them. The Hunt Library catalogue mistakenly describes the second French edition (Nouveau traité, Paris 1696, illustrated with woodcuts) as the first edition and notes that this is "a rare little work, not listed in any of the larger botanical collections so far as we can find." The present Italian translation after the first edition appears to be even rarer.Dahuron was gardener to Georg Wilhelm, Duke of Braunschweig-Lüneburg at Celle from 1690 to 1701 and then to Wilhelm I, King of Prussia at Potsdam. The present Italian translation appeared in 1698 together with an Italian Compendio of Jean de la Quintinye, Instruction pour les Jardins (Paris 1690) as Il Giardiniero Francese, overo Trattato del Tagliare gl'Alberi da Frutto con la Maniera di ben Allevarli (Venice, Girolamo Albrizzi, 1698).
