        Portrait historique de l'Empereur de la Chine, présenté au Roy

      Paris: Robert Pepie, "1698" but printed in, 1697. Duodecimo, small old library stamp on title; in very good condition in the original vellum binding, neatly lettered on spine. The Kangxi Emperor described for Louis XIV. First edition, revised issue (details below). Bouvet's important description of the Kangxi Emperor and his court was written for Louis XIV of France, who had sent Bouvet and his Jesuit colleagues to China; Bouvet set out to encourage the king's further support of the mission in China. Widely read at a time when information about China was markedly exotic and hard to obtain, Bouvet's memoir quickly appeared in Latin, Dutch, English and Italian versions. It is seen as an interesting description of the Qing court, and a Chinese translation has been published in modern times ({i Kangxi huangdi}, 1981). Bouvet gives a through description of the powerful Kangxi Emperor at the height of his powers, with detailed personal impressions of the emperor himself, to whom Bouvet became quite close, and very good descriptions of the Imperial Court. The great consolidator of the Qing dynasty, Kangxi was a reformer and moderniser while still encouraging Confucian learning and traditional values. He welcomed the six Jesuits sent by the French king as missionaries to China in 1685; Joachim Bouvet (1656-1730) was one of these scientifically-inclined missionaries who were commissioned to carry on astronomical observations, to determine the geographical positions of the various places they were to visit, and to collect various scientific data. Bouvet stayed at Peking, teaching the emperor mathematics and astronomy and later served as the emperor's personal envoy to France. 'Bouvet describes the emperor as an absolute but wise and humane ruler, a superb administrator, a valiant soldier and avid hunter, a brilliant intellect, a diligent scholar, a paragon of personal morality, and the protector of the Jesuits…' (Lach & Van Kley, {i Asia in the Making of Europe}, III: 4, p.1680). He also suggests that Kangxi himself was close to converting to Christianity, though the subsequent Chinese Rites Controversy would in fact cause the emperor to forbid Christian missionary activity in China from 1715. This revised issue of the book (both issues are rare) has its contents unchanged and various pagination errors uncorrected; the title-page alone is altered to allow for a change in publishers. The other issue had appeared over the name of the Paris publisher Estienne Michallet. As the last leaf shows, the book itself was actually printed a year earlier than the imprint on the title-page ("{i Achevé d'imprimer pour la premiere fois, le 15. Septembre 1697}").

Het werk bestaat uit circa 10.000 pagina's met commentaren van over de vijftig zestiende en zeventiende eeuwse geleerden en is wellicht de meest uitvoerige universele Bijbelverklaring die ooit is samengesteld. De samenstellers hebben teksten van onder andere Benedictus Arias Montanus, James Ussher, Christopher Cartwright, Johannes Drusius, Sixtinus Amama, Abraham Scultetus, Kaspar Waser, Sebastian Münster, François Vatable, Claudius Salmasius, Joseph Scaliger, Isaac Casaubon en Hugo Grotius verzameld.

The Critici Sacri is a compilation of Latin biblical commentaries and was published for the first time in 1660, this edition from 1698 is an expanded edition. It contains nearly 10.000 pages of commentaries by well over fifty sixteenth and seventeenth century scholars and is perhaps the most ambitious universal Bible commentary ever compiled. The compilers brought together texts by Benedictus Arias Montanus, James Ussher, Christopher Cartwright, Johannes Drusius, Sixtinus Amama, Abraham Scultetus, Kaspar Waser, Sebastian Münster, François Vatable, Claudius Salmasius, Joseph Scaliger, Isaac Casaubon, Hugo Grotius, and many others. The commentaries and criticism are not arranged by author, but by the Bible passages they discuss, so that one can read and compare the views of all the leading scholars concerning any passage.).

A classic work first appearing in 1668 under a different title and as a pamphlet (reprinted in 1689); this was expanded for the 1690 edition which was reprinted in 1693 and 1694. (and at that time re-titled for the first time as it is here). Child was one of the most influential English mercantile authors of the seventeenth century. His preoccupation with Dutch expansionism naturally leads him into a detailed examination of the commercial battles between Britain, Holland and America as well as the East Indies. Here he argues that a high rate of interest hinders the growth of trade and discourages navigation, industry, arts and invention. He urges the abolition of technical regulation of the cloth industry, and is concerned with strengthening the competitive power of English merchants. 'The argument in the New Discourse to show that colonies do not depopulate the mother country, is as conclusive as if it had proceeded from the pen of Mr Malthus; and the reasoning in defence of the naturalization of the Jews discovers a mind greatly superior to existing prejudices.' McCulloch, p.42. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Hymen’s Præludia: or Love’s Master-Piece. Being that So-much-Admired Romance, intituled, Cleopatra. In Twelve Parts. Written originally in the French, and now rendred into English, by Robert Loveday [and John Coles, James Webb and John Davies].

      Printed for Ralph Smith 1698 - title within double rules, occasional paper-flaws, rust or other small holes with the loss of the odd letter, minor ink, wax or other stains, a few leaves foxed, slightly browned in places, final advertisement leaf discarded, pp. [viii], 958, folio in 4s, near contemporary mottled calf, rebacked, corners worn, inscription on flyleaf recording the purchase of it on 3 Oct. 1699 for 18/6, a few emendations to the text in the same early hand, nineteenth-century book-plate of the Marquess of Headfort, good The text has a convoluted publishing history. ‘Having become proficient in French and Italian under the instruction of another member of the Clinton household, Loveday translated into English the first three parts of La Calprenède’s Cléopâtre under the title Hymen’s Præludia, or, Love’s Master-Piece; these appeared respectively in 1652, 1654, and 1655, and were reprinted many times. Despite the erroneous attribution of other parts of the romance to Loveday’s hand in some later editions, it was only with the collaboration of John Coles that part 4 was completed and published in 1656. Loveday [who died in 1656] was an agreeable writer, and his translation is accurate and idiomatic’ (ODNB). Coles was responsible for parts 5-7, James Webb for part 8, and John Davies for parts 9-12. Individual parts, and incomplete collections were published until the first collected edition appeared in 1668, and there were several editions until the mid-eighteenth century. The daughter of Anthony and Cleopatra, the Cleopatra of the title (also known as Cleopatra Selene) was the consort of Juba II, King of Mauretania. The present edition is a rare one, with just BL, London Library, Bodley, Newberry and Barr Smith Library recorded in ESTC. (Wing, 2nd ed., L124a; ESTC R221100, giving the date as 1652 in error)
