        The anatomy of humane bodies

      Sam. Smith and Benj. Walford, Oxford 1698 - Baroque AnatomyCowper, William (1666-1709). The anatomy of humane bodies. . . . Folio. [72]ff. including mezzotint portrait by Smith after Closterman, allegorical engraved title attributed to Abraham Bloteling (1640-90) with pasted-on English title in cartouche as usual, second engraved title with vignette by Sturt. 114 plates (2 folding), 105 designed by Gérard de Lairesse [1640-1711] & probably engraved by Bloteling, 9 mostly drawn & engraved by M. van der Gucht. London: Sam. Smith & Benj. Walford, 1698 [printed at the Sheldonian Theater, Oxford]. 568 357 mm. Paneled calf ca. 1698, worn, rebacked, corners repaired, endpapers renewed. Portrait, which is often missing, trimmed & mounted as always. First few leaves frayed, portrait soiled and with tears repaired, folding plates partially backed in paper to repair tears, tears in a few other plates, light foxing & spotting as in virtually all copies due to mineral deposits in the paper. Good to very good copy. Early ownership inscription on front endpaper.First Edition in English of the original plates designed for Govard Bidloo by Gérard de Lairesse, a painter who rivaled Rembrandt in popularity in his time. G-M 385 cites the original issue of the plates with Latin text by Bidloo in 1685. Bidloo's text, however, was widely criticized, and because of this Cowper arranged to supply an entirely new text in English to accompany a reissue of the original engravings. This reissue was limited to 300 copies. The new English text was clearly superior, and the basis for later Latin editions. Cowper, however, did not acknowledge Bidloo, even going so far as to paste over Bidloo's name with his own in the cartouche on the engraved allegorical title. This action resulted in a bitter plagiarism dispute between the two, one of the most famous in medical history. In 1700 Bidloo went so far as to publish his Gulielmus Cowper, criminalis literari citatus, coram tribunali attacking Cowper in considerable detail."Elegantly done and artistically perfect" (Choulant / Frank 250), the atlas is considered the finest of the Baroque period, and one of the greatest artistic anatomies of all time. Despite imperfections from the point of view of dissection, the anatomical studies reflect much that is good, including early depictions of skin and hair from observation with a microscope. Dumaitre, Gérard de Lairesse (1982). Hofer 146. Enc. World Art IV 753, V 436, VII 661. Russell 211. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Relation d'un Voyage fait en 1695, 1696 et 1697, aux Côtes d'Afrique, détroit de Magellan, Brezil, Cayenne et Isles Antilles, par une Escadre des Vaisseaux du Roy, commandée par M. de Gennes

      Paris: dans l'Isle du Palais et G. Saugrain, 1698. First edition.. Endpapers show a little marginal browning, light wear and a few age cracks to spine, the contents are very bright and clean; a tight copy in very good condition in an attractive contemporary binding.. Pp. (12), 219, (1); additional engraved title page, 29 engraved maps and plates, 9 of which are folding. Contemporary speckled calf leather, spine with 5 raised bands, red morocco title label in one compartment lettered in gilt, the five remaining compartments with elaborate gilt decorations, sm 8vo (184 x 105 mm). This is the rare first edition of an expedition undertaken in 1695-1697 to found a French settlement in the Straits of Magellen - that project ultimately failed. The expedition additionally visited the coast of Africa, Brazil and French Guiana (Cox II, p. 264). This account of the expedition is especially noteworthy for details of natural history subjects and for the accuracy of Froger's charts. Froger went on this voyage at the age of eighteen (Hill Collection, 2004, no. 656). The work contains one of the earliest maps of the port of Rio de Janeiro. See also Sabin 26001. Armorial bookplate of Charles Izard Manigault (1795-1874), grandson of Gabriel Manigault (1704-1781), a rice planter and businessman from South Carolina who was considered one of the wealthiest men in the colonies. It is known that between 1817 and 1823, Charles Manigault travelled widely in Asia, Australia and South America. On his return to the United States he entered the family business as a plantation owner. He was also an art collector- his collection of family portraits was considered the finest in America (from Emory Rare Books).

      Leipzig, Nikolaus Förster 1698 - 2 parties en un fort vol. petit in-4 carré, [6] ff. n. ch. (titre, préface), [294] pp. mal chiffrées 292 (il y a deux ff. différents chiffrés 183-84) ; [590] pp. mal chiffrées 592 (il y a saut de chiffrage de 582 à 585), demi-basane fauve à coins, dos lisse, pièce de titre cerise, tranches bleues (rel. du XVIIIe s.). Coiffes un peu frottées, rousseurs. Edition originale, dont l'éditeur n'est autre que l'illustre philosophe Leibniz (1646-1716), qui s'intéressait aussi à l'histoire, tant par le biais du droit, et de la publication, entamée dès 1690, de textes juridiques médiévaux, qu'à travers la commande effectuée en 1685 par l'Electeur de Hanovre de composer une grande histoire de la Maison de Brunswick. Très mal connu, Aubry ou Albéric de Trois-Fontaines semble l'auteur d'une grande chronique universelle courant jusqu'à l'année 1241 (et originale seulement pour les années 1220-1241) ; en tout cas, le texte présenté est mis sous son nom. Le problème est que la tradition manuscrite adopte deux formes assez différentes dans le détail : la première famille paraît être l'oeuvre d'un moine champenois (l'abbaye de Trois-Fontaines est sise dans le diocèse de Châlons) s'intéressant particulièrement à l'histoire de sa province natale, et spécialement aux familles nobles ; la seconde provient du monastère de Neufmoutiers, près de Huy (pays de Liège), abonde en détails locaux peu exportables. En fonction de leurs a-priori, les historiens cherchent à résoudre comme ils peuvent cette dichotomie, souvent au prix d'hypothèses que rien ne vient vérifier. SHF, Molinier, V, 170.

        Portrait historique de l&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;s personal envoy to France. &#39;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…&#39; (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&#39;imprimer pour la premiere fois, le 15. Septembre 1697}").
