        NOUVEAU VOYAGE D'UN PAIS PLUS GRAND QUE L'EUROPE AVEC LES REFLECTIONES DES ENTERPRISES DU SIEUR DE LA SALLE, SUR LES MINES DE ST. BARBE, &c

      Utrecht, 1698. 12mo. Handsome tan crushed morocco, gilt extra, leather spine labels, marbled endpapers, a.e.g., by Lucien Broca. A few tiny marginal paper repairs. Otherwise, internally clean. Near fine. First edition. This edition of Hennepin's writings is a continuation of his NOUVELLE DECOUVERTE... of the previous year. In this work he added new material drawn from contemporary sources on Indian manners and customs and various North American travels. The first eight chapters describe the adventures and murder of La Salle, while the last concern the British treatment of the Recollets after the taking of Quebec in 1629. Lengthy passages are taken from Le Clercq's ETABLISSEMENT DE LA FOY of 1688. Despite the fact that Hennepin has been severely and justly criticized for imposture and plagiarism, his works, according to Thwaites, still stand as "invaluable contributions to the sources of American history; they deserve study, and to this day furnish rare entertainment. We can pardon much to our erratic friar, when he leaves to us such monuments as these." No other narratives of French exploration in the interior of North America enjoyed as wide a popularity or stimulated as much controversy and criticism among later scholars as those of Hennepin. A Recollet missionary, Father Hennepin went to New France in 1675, and in 1678 he set out with La Salle to explore the fertile basin of the Mississippi River. While La Salle turned back to raise funds to continue the voyage, Hennepin went on to ascend the river from Fort Crevecoeur (Chicago) and penetrated farther northwest into the interior than any white man to that time. He discovered St. Anthony's Falls near the present site of Minneapolis, and provided the first eyewitness account of Niagara Falls.

        "A new discovery of a vast country in America, extending about four thousand miles, between New France and New Mexico; with a description of the Great Lakes, cataracts, rivers, plants, and animals ... With a continuation giving an account of the attempts of the Sieur de la Salle upon the mines of St. Barbe, &c"

      London: M. Bentley [and 4 others]. 1698. "First edition in English, combining Hennepin's second and third books, the Nouvelle Decouverte and the Nouveau Voyages (the latter the continuation of the former); the ''Tonson"" issue (with the first line of the imprint ending in ""Tonson"", earlier ""Bon-""); bound with, as issued, A continuation of the new discovery... with sectional title page; 8vo, pp. [22], 243; [32], 228; bound without the blank leaf A-1; engraved frontispiece, 2 engraved folding maps (both backed in linen), and 6 folding plates (including the first illustrations of Niagara Falls and the buffalo); full red crushed levant by Zaehnsdorf for for A.

Hinckley (St. Louis) and Edward Chenery Gale. Originally published in French in Utrecht in 1697 and 1698 respectively, the Nouvelle Decouverte is the account of a pretended voyage down the Mississippi with La Salle (""an imposture which consigned him to eternal obloquy"" - Howes); and the Nouvelle Voyages, a sequel of sorts, ""was hastily prepared to capitalize on the enormous success of his iniquitous Decouverte... Based on various contemporary sources, it is made up of information concerning the manners and customs of the Indians, and of La Salle's extraordinary labors in the far reaches of Canada's new frontier"" (Howes). Church 772; Howes H-416; JFB H-99; JCB 1675-1700, p. 366; Sabin 31371; Wing H-1451."

        RELATION DES VOYAGES ET DES DE'COUVERTES QUE LES ESPAGNOLS ONE FAIT DANS LES INDES OCCIDENTALES. [bound with:] L'ART DE VOYAGER UTILEMENT

      Amsterdam, 1698. 12mo. 20th-century green morocco by Brugalla, gilt, a.e.g., gilt inner dentelles. Spine lightly sunned. Minor scattered foxing. Near fine. An interesting combination of Montauban's account of his buccaneering voyages against the slave ships off Guinea, and Las Casas' stirring tracts against the brutal treatment of the West Indies natives. Sieur de Montauban was a member of the group of French pirates who took the name "Freres de la Cotes." His hatred for the Spanish and English impelled him to terrorize their slave ships off the West African coast. He became famous for freeing African slaves and for his demonstrated respect for their humanity. Las Casas, the first great historian and humanist of the New World, arrived in Cuba in 1502 and spent most of his time in the Caribbean and Mexico until his return to Spain in 1547. An early critic of Spanish policy, he nonetheless rose to be Bishop of Chiapas. After his return to Spain he launched a series of attacks on Spanish Indian policy. His tracts, first published in 1551-52 and printed in the present volume in an English translation, denounce Spanish cruelty to Indians in the West Indies and Mexico. This is a translation of four of the nine Las Casas tracts, softened in some of the cruel parts "which might have given pain to delicate persons" (Sabin). The third work, L'ART DE VOYAGER UTILEMENT, is a short, rare, anonymous piece extolling the virtues of "le Voyager." Its author discusses what it takes to join their ranks: courage and rugged strength to endure the inevitable hardship and deprivation that accompanies life on the high seas and in unknown parts of the world. A handsome volume.

        AN HISTORICAL AND GEOGRAPHICAL ACCOUNT OF THE PROVINCE AND COUNTRY OF PENSILVANIA; AND OF WEST-NEW-JERSEY IN AMERICA

      London, 1698. Contemporary ruled sheep, with 8 leaves of original printed binder's waste sheets (probably Wing G61). Minor wear along front joint, but a near pristine copy in original binding. In a cloth chemise and half morocco and cloth slipcase. Provenance: Frank T. Siebert (Sotheby's New York, May 21, 1999, lot 122); Jay Snider (bookplate). One of the first extensive promotional tracts for New Jersey and Pennsylvania, based on the author's fifteen years there, and dedicated to William Penn. An enthusiastic promoter, Thomas describes the natural products of the country and the extent of settlement which had already taken place, as well as giving a good account of the Indian tribes of the area and specimens of the Delaware Indian language. He particularly encourages poor Englishmen to move there, and gives one of the first descriptions of Philadelphia. "Thomas had lived in America for about fifteen years, and the information contained in this book is the result of his own observations and experience. It was written to induce the immigration of all who wished to better their worldly condition, and especially of the poor who might subsist in West Jersey 'without either begging or stealing.' He gives an account of the natural products of the country and the improvements already made and in progress, as well as of the modes of life among the Indians and the prevailing intercourse between them and the settlers. In the Preface the author says: 'Nor is there the least question or doubt to be made, but this Noble Spot of Earth will thrive exceedingly'" - Church. In addition to the geographic and ethnographic information it provides, Thomas' text also recognizes a nascent population boom that would sustain growth and development in the region. He writes: "Jealousie among Men is here very rare, and Barrenness among Women hardly to be heard of, nor are old Maids to be met with; for all commonly Marry before they are Twenty Years of Age, and seldom any young Married Woman but hath a Child in her Belly, or one upon her Lap." One of the most important early works on Pennsylvania, rich with descriptive information, in a fine contemporary binding. This copy sold for $40,250 at the Siebert sale in 1999.

        1698 Principles of Philosophy by Rene Descartes Metaphysics Isaac Newton Physics

      Rouen, Chez Jean-Baptiste Besongne, 1698. - 1698 Principles of Philosophy by Rene Descartes Metaphysics Isaac Newton Physics Very Rare French ed of Principia Philosophiae René Descartes (1596 – 1650) was a French philosopher, mathematician and writer who spent most of his life in the Dutch Republic. Principles of Philosophy (Latin: Principia philosophiae) is a book by René Descartes. It set forth the principles of nature—the Laws of Physics—as Descartes viewed them. Most notably, it set forth the principle that in the absence of external forces, an object's motion will be uniform and in a straight line. Newton borrowed this principle from Descartes and included it in his own Principia; to this day, it is still generally referred to as Newton's First Law of Motion. The work provides a systematic statement of his metaphysics and natural philosophy, and represents the first truly comprehensive, mechanistic account of the universe. We do not find any other examples of this work for sale elsewhere. However, there are other examples of late 17th-century printings of this work for sale for over $8,700!

Toned, marginal wear, small loss at two fold intersections, else very good condition with original wax seal.Deed for the sale of land in lower Manhattan ""for twenty five pounds Currant money of New York,"" from the widow of Derick Vanderclyff to George Stanton, that being a tract of land ""bounded on the South by...commonly called Nassau Street...and on the North by the land of William Beakman (Wilhelmus Beekman)"". Docketing on the verso reads in part, ""A Deed for A Lott next [to] / The Brewhauss.""Beekman purchased his first parcel of land in lower Manhattan in 1652 followed by other parcels in the same area. Although a good deal of it was swampy and scarcely fit for grazing, it became the basis for the family's wealth. ""Beekman's Swamp"" housed tanneries, from which a trade in leather developed. Beekman was active in politics, an Alderman, one of the two Commissioners to build the wall extending along the present Wall Street, a Schepen, Lieutenant of the Burgher corps, and Deputy Mayor of New York (1681-1683). William Street and Beekman Street in New York City are named in his honor."

ANTWERPIAE IN PHILIPPI REGIS CATHOLICI GRATIAM DESCRIBEBAT. Ao. MDLXXI’. Double hemisphere world map, showing principally the dissemination of the tribes of Israel. After

      Benedictus Arias Montanus 1698 - 34x50cm. No text verso. Except for some occasional paper thinning along the white margins, a clean, crisp and fine example of a rare map in a strong printing impression in full recent colour. A rare version of a world map, drawn after the itself rare Arias Montanus world map of 1571 (published in Antwerp in Plantin's Polyglot Bible), and shortly mentioned in Shirley's Corrigenda and Addenda (#125) without giving the source. Cartographic outline and text have been clearly copied from the Montanus map. However, the decorative features, like windheads, seamonsters, ships, etc. have been omitted. It was first published in a 9-volume bible commentary by John Pearson, entitled 'Critici Sacri: sive Annotata doctissimorum virorum in Vetus ac Novum Testamentum.' in 1660 in London (Wing P-994A). However, the engraver arranged the text of this variant map - published later by Janssonius van Waesberge in the 1698 Amsterdam edition of the same work - in very different tables, and below the map are vivid scenes of the Garden of Eden (left) and the deluge (right), which do not appear on any of the earlier versions of the map.

While Part I dealt primarily with "political arithmetick," Part II focuses on the somewhat more lively subject of foreign trade and consists of: "four Discourses... viz. (I.) That Foreign Trade is beneficial to England and (II.) On the protection and Care of Trade, (III.) On the Plantation Trade, (IV.) On the East-India Trade; to which is added the late Essay on the East-India Trade." (with a separate title page and pagination.) The last-mentioned, first published a year earlier, is Davenant's famous essay opposing the protection of English textiles from Indian competition.

"Purcell was a prolific contributor to all the main genres of secular vocal music current in 17th-century England. He has always been particularly admired as a song composer. Generations of English musicians got to know his music from the two posthumous song volumes Orpheus Britannicus ... and Henry Playford wrote in the preface to the first volume that he had 'a peculiar Genius to express the energy of English Words, whereby he mov'd the Passions of all his Auditors', while Henry Hall added in a poem that he 'Each Syllable first weigh'd, or short, or long, / That it might too be Sense, as well as Song'."

        RELATION DES VOYAGES ET DES DE'COUVERTES QUE LES ESPAGNOLS ONE FAIT DANS LES INDES OCCIDENTALES. [bound with:] L'ART DE VOYAGER UTILEMENT

      Amsterdam. 1698.. [10],402,[2]; [4],51,[1]pp. plus frontispiece. 12mo. 20th-century green morocco by Brugalla, gilt, gilt inner dentelles, a.e.g. Spine lightly sunned. Minor scattered foxing. Near fine. An interesting combination of Montauban's account of his buccaneering voyages against the slave ships off Guinea, and Las Casas' stirring tracts against the brutal treatment of the West Indies natives. Sieur de Montauban was a member of the group of French pirates who took the name "Freres de la Cotes." His hatred for the Spanish and English impelled him to terrorize their slave ships off the West African coast. He became famous for freeing African slaves and for his demonstrated respect for their humanity. Las Casas, the first great historian and humanist of the New World, arrived in Cuba in 1502 and spent most of his time in the Caribbean and Mexico until his return to Spain in 1547. An early critic of Spanish policy, he nonetheless rose to be Bishop of Chiapas. After his return to Spain, he launched a series of attacks on Spanish Indian policy. His tracts, first published in 1551-52 and printed in the present volume in an English translation, denounce Spanish cruelty to Indians in the West Indies and Mexico. This is a translation of four of the nine Las Casas tracts, softened in some of the cruel parts "which might have given pain to delicate persons" (Sabin). The third work, L'ART DE VOYAGER UTILEMENT, is a short, rare, anonymous piece extolling the virtues of "le Voyager." Its author discusses what it takes to join their ranks - courage and rugged strength to endure the inevitable hardship and deprivation that accompanies life on the high seas and in unknown parts of the world. A handsome volume. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 698/33, 698/148. SABIN 11274. PALAU 46965n. MEDINA (BHA) 1085n. JCB (4) 359. NICHOLSON C127. HANKE 560. STREIT I:735.

      London: Printed for James Knapton, at the Crown in St. Pauls Church-yard, 1698. First edition. Good overall in original leather boards.

While Part I dealt primarily with "political arithmetick," Part II focuses on the somewhat more lively subject of foreign trade and consists of: "four Discourses... viz. (I.) That Foreign Trade is beneficial to England and (II.) On the protection and Care of Trade, (III.) On the Plantation Trade, (IV.) On the East-India Trade; to which is added the late Essay on the East-India Trade." (with a separate title page and pagination.)

        Discourses concerning Government

      London: Printed, and are to be sold by the Booksellers of London and Westminster,, 1698. Published from an original manuscript of the author. Folio (315 × 205 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, blindstamp rule border to covers, neatly rejointed, new contrasting spine label. Joints and spine ends neatly restored, new red morocco label. Front free endpaper with neat tape repair. A few leaves browned; an excellent copy. First edition of this major text of republican theory written between 1681 and 1683 and originally circulated as a manuscript. "Although long and sometimes repetitive the Discourses places Sidney alongside Milton as the master of republican eloquence. It is the power of its prose, as much as any aspect of its content, which helps to account for the work's exceptional subsequent impact in Britain, continental Europe, and America. Polemically a refutation of Sir Robert Filmer's Patriarcha (1680), the practical purpose of the Discourses is again to argue for armed resistance to oppression ... for subsequent influence in Enlightenment Britain, America, the United Provinces, Germany, and France he had no seventeenth-century rival except John Locke" (ODNB). "Sidney was executed in 1683 for complicity in the Rye House Plot, his papers, including the [unpublished] Discourses, being used against him. The indictment cited sentences saying that the king is subject to law, is responsible to the people, and may be deposed, as a 'false, seditious, and traitorous libel'… Sidney's Discourses Concerning Government was not published until 1698" (Sabine, 512). Thomas Jefferson was one of many influenced by Sidney's ideas. In 1804, he wrote of the Discourses: "They are in truth a rich treasure of republican principles, supported by copious & cogent arguments, and adorned with the finest flowers of science. It is probably the best elementary book of the principles of government… which has ever been published in any language" (Sowerby III: J6). "Jefferson identified Sidney as one of four writers who provided the intellectual foundations of the Declaration of Independence" (A Covenanted People, 56).
