        Eigentliches Zeugniß der Warheit in der Demmerung, oder Ein guter Anfang zu der wahren Roß-Artzney. Mehrentheils auß eigener Erfahrung und Judicio, in Einfalt seines Hertzen auß deßen Schatz nach seinen Erkäntniß herfür gebracht, eines sich selber zu einen Memorial, allermeist- aber für seine Kinder zur guten Nachricht auffgezeichnet hinterlaßen von den Schmiede zu Böhlitz Christoff Tostlöwen Anno 1698.

      Böhlitz bei Leipzig, 1698.. 4to. Manuscript copy, dated 1712. (74), 506, (4) pp., with two contemporary woodcuts of horses, removed from an illustrated Bible, mounted on verso of final leaf. Modern brown calf with giltstamped spine label.. Remarkable, unpublished hippiatric manuscript, composed in the late 17th century by the Böhlitz blacksmith Christoph Tostlöwe (d. 1699 in Böhlitz-Gundorf mear Leipzig) and here presented in a near-contemporary copy prepared but 14 years later by an unknown hand (the initial pages of the present ms. are dated to the early months of the year 1712; the completion of the copy probably required the better part of that year). The ms. begins with a lengthy preface in which the self-confident craftsman justifies his work, demonstrates his familiarity with the Dutch physicians Cornelius Bontekoe and Steven Blankaart, and asserts his competence in the medical field. This is followed by Tostlöwe's wide-ranging treatise on the treatment of the horse, including sections on stomach ailments, enemas, gall disorders, phthisis, ailments of the eyes, as well as the proper care of the hoof, how to properly cast a horse on its side and tie it down, etc. The end is brought up by a three-page index; the final page shows two woodcuts of horses in battle and flight, removed from a contemporary illustrated Bible. - Tostlöwe was heavily influenced by the Pietist theologians Spener and Francke and was well-connected with the Leipzig Pietist movement. For his heretical views and disputatious activities he was arrested and questioned by the Merseburg consistorium in 1695; his written apology - an outstanding document of a Protestant layman's theological poise in the 17th century - has survived. His self-assured stance in matters theological as well as medical is also evident from the present work, in which he frequently departs into religious similes and parentheses. - A well-preserved and well legible ms., with numerous corrections and revisions by the copyist, prepared within two decades of the original. - Cf. Leipzig UB, Ms 2709 (the only known other ms. copy, also dated 1712).

        Graubünden. - Als Papierurkunde ausgestellter Reisepass zugunsten des Herzogs Viktor Amadeus von Savoyen und seines Gefolges für die Reise nach Sankt Moritz zur Wasserkur, durch die Häupter der drei Bünde, versammelt in Chur.

      1698,. 21.5x33 cm, in brauner Tinte auf Papier, in deutscher Kanzleischrift mit schöner kalligraphischer Initiale, mit 3 gut erhaltenen Papiersiegeln, Papier durchgehend etwas fleckig, dazu ein Blatt mit der italien. Übersetzung, o. J. (18/19. Jh.), guter Zustand.. Handschriftliches Original-Reisepapier (Reisepass) für den Herzog Viktor Amadeus I. (1666-1732) von Savoyen, der ein paar Jahre später zum ersten König von Sardinien-Piemont wurde. Ausgestellt wurde dieser Passierschein in Chur von den hier versammelten Häuptern der 3 Bünde (Gotteshausbund, Grauer Bund, Zehngerichtebund), dem Freistaat, welcher nach 1798 zum Kanton Graubünden wurde. Die 3 schönen, am unteren Rand angebrachten Papiersiegel der Bünde verdecken teilweise die Unterschriften der verschiedenen Cancellarii (Kanzler oder Schreiber). Das in deutscher Sprache verfasste Dokument, welches laut Einleitung auf Anfrage des Botschafters Carolo Casati aus Mailand ausgestellt wurde, fordert alle auf, den Herzog und seinen Hof auf dem Weg nach "St. Maurizi in dem Obern Engadin" durchreisen zu lassen, denn "bis dahin in unseren Landen die Wasser Cur zu Pflegung der Edlen Gesundtheit zu gebrauchen, niemandem versagt worden". Sankt Moritz war spätestens seit der Beschreibung der heilsamen Kräfte der Heilquelle (eisensaures Wasser) durch Paracelsus um 1530 ein bekannter Kurort, also lange vor dem Aufkommen des Tourismus und des Wintersports. Im 17. und 18. Jh. waren es vor allem Persönlichkeiten aus Italien, neben den Herzögen von Savoyen auch die von Parma, welche für eine Wasserkur ins Oberengadin reisten.Please notify before visiting to see a book.

        An Examination of Dr. Burnet's Theory of the Earth. Together with some Remarks on Mr. Whiston's New Theory of the Earth.

      Printed at the Theater 1698 - 8vo (188x115 mm). iv, 224 pp. Vignette on title, some illustrations in text, dampstaining to fore-margin of first few leaves, internally browned and foxed, few early notes, little scoring, contemporary calf, spine gilt, worn, joints cracked. ---- First edition of Keill's first book. "This was . an attack on the cosmogonical treatises about the world's creation then being widely debated by many members of the Royal Society. Although supposedly written specifically against the unscientific methods of the theories of Thomas Burnet and William Whiston it amounted to a very hostile attack--in the name of orthodoxy--on the delusions of 'world-making' which were caused, Keill claimed, by Cartesian natural philosophy. As an antidote Keill prescribed the more modest and exact Newtonian philosophy, based solidly on mathematical reasoning, even Newton himself was known at the time to have sympathies with the cosmogonical theories"--DSB VII, 275.

        Discourses on the Publick Revenues, and on the Trade of England. In two Parts

      London: James Knapton,, 1698. Viz. I. Of the Use of Political Arithmetick, in all Consideration about the Revenues and Trade. II. On Credit and the Means and Methods by which it may be restored. III. On the Management of the King's Revenues. IV. Whither to Farm the Revenues, may not, in this Juncture, be most for the Publick Service? V. On the Publick Debts and Engagements... Part I. To which is added, a Discourse upon improving the Revenue of the State of Athens. Written originally in Greek, by Xenophon; and now made English from the Original, with some historical Notes; by another Hand [Walter Moyle]. [– Part II. Discourses … which more immediately treat of the Foreign Traffick of this Kingdom … To which is added, the late Essay on the East-India Trade. By the same Hand]. Two volumes, octavo (183 × 108 mm). Contemporary plain calf, covers with a blindstamp rule border and corner decoration, later red morocco labels. With 4 folding tables. Covers a little rubbed, short split at the head of the upper joint to volume one. Front free endpaper to volume one and rear endpapers to volume two removed. A very attractive set. First edition. Sir Charles Davenant (1656–1714), MP and, at the end of his life, Inspector-General of Exports and Imports, took many years to become recognized as an economist of the first rank, a fact explained by the sophistication of his thought. Part I of the present Discourses contains five essays, on "Political Arithmetic" (described by Schumpeter as treating its subject with "unsurpassable fairness"), credit, and other matters of public finance. Part II contains essays on trade. The Essay on the East-India Trade was first published in 1696. Schumpeter classifies the "impressive total" of Davenant's contributions to economic analysis under four heads: "(1) there is, implicit but clear, behind all his writings the awareness of the logic of the relations by which things economic hang together; … (2) he substantially improved … his epoch's acquirements in the theories of money and of international trade and finance; (3) he was one of the first authorities of his time on public finance – taxes, debts, and so on; (4) he was one of the few who understood, and co-operated in, the work of Political Arithmetick" (History of Economic Analysis, p. 211).

        ELEUTHERIA: OR, AN IDEA OF THE REFORMATION IN ENGLAND: AND A HISTORY OF NON-CONFORMITY IN AND SINCE THAT REFORMATION. WITH PREDICTIONS OF A MORE GLORIOUS REFORMATION AND REVOLUTION AT HAND

      London: Printed for J.R. and sold by Sam. Philips Bookseller at Boston in New-England. 1698.. iv,135pp. Antique half calf and contemporary marbled boards. Text uniformly tanned and foxed. Small neat repairs in the upper margin of the verso of the titlepage and the first leaf of the "To the Reader" section. Very good. One of the rarer works of Cotton Mather. In it, Mather considers the state of the Church of England in the period after the Reformation and argues for the unity of the New England churches with the Church of England. Written in 1696, the book was sent to London in the care of Mather's brother-in-law, and published there in 1698. Perhaps in light of the prominent role he played during the Salem witch trials, or fearing retribution from "Tory churchmen," Mather decided that anonymity would serve him best, and he concealed his authorship of this work. He writes in the preface "to the bookseller" that "the author of this manuscript lies concealed from you, and from all its readers, only that he may, till a fitter opportunity, preserve his teeth from some few kicking unreasonables." The publisher refers to Mather only as a "learned non- conformist" from New England. There are three variant imprints of this title, one for a bookseller in Boston (as in the present copy), one for a bookseller in Edinburgh, and one for a bookseller in London. On December 1, 1698, Mather noted in his diary, "This day, the Ship, for whose arrival I had pray'd with so much Faith, safely arrived. And by this Ship, there comes to my hand, my Eleutheria...which gives me to see, a special Care of the Holy Angels concerning it, and I believe it will have notable affects in the English Nation." ESTC locates a dozen copies of the present issue, seven of which are in the United States. We have handled one other copy, in 1989. Rare. HOLMES 107 (3). ESTC R1888. WING M1103. SABIN 46301.

      Lisboa, na Officina de Miguel Deslandes, Impressor de S. Magestade, 1698. - 4to.; 16 hs., 259 pp. Encuadernación en piel marbreada, de la época, con lomera profusamente ornada. Una rara edición portuguesa en la que se hace referencia a una traducción española de la que ésta es la única cita conocida. [Vid. C. Calvo Rigual: «Traducciones de Savonarola en España, con noticia de algunas desconocidas», Philologia Hispalensis, 2008]. La obra aparece aquí a caballo de las polémicas imágenes históricas de Savonarola, entre la de un falso profeta apocalíptico y herético, incendiario de libros e intransigente fustigador de la moral pública, y la que por el contrario lo supone un hombre de intensa experiencia religiosa, sensible intérprete de la espiritualidad de su tiempo, lo cual evidenciaría que la reforma que intentó no provenía de intenciones políticas y seculares, sino de un apasionado amor por Cristo y de una intensa necesidad interior. Un libro complejo, a descifrar, dentro de una intrincada tradición carmelitana. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Britannia, or, The Kingdom of England and dominion of Wales actually survey'd: with a geographical and historical description of the principal roads, explain'd by one hundred maps on copper-plates : with the ichnography, or drought of the several cities, chief towns, &c., and a view of the churches, houses, and places of note on the road: also an account of the most remarkable passages of antiquity relating to them, and of their present state

      Robert Morden & Abel Swall London: Robert Morden & Abel Swall, 1698. good. Folio atlas with Itinerarium Angliae pp. 48, followed by 100 double page road maps in a strip format. Many of the maps are frayed at the corners, affecting the margins only. Several words of text are missing from the lower right corner of the title page and dedication page. Inscription on the first fly leaf reads "Duplicate from the Library of the Earl of Leicester at Holkham Hall." Contemporary leather with large embossed gold family crest of Thomas Coke (1st Earl of Leicester), which reads "Prudens qui patiens" and features an ostrich holding a horseshoe perched on a hat. Cover re-backed and right corner re-attached. John Ogilby's "Britannia," is an innovative atlas of road maps that contextualized travel between known points within physical features of the surrounding landscape. The usefulness of this combination of features shows itself in the well-used pages of this final version of the atlas. The volume contains 100 strip maps that collectively document 2,519 miles. While the atlas does not have page numbers, the maps are numbered in the lower right corner for ease of use. The atlas is particularly notable for its large-scale format, allowing for detailed description of even small roads in the Kingdom of England. The combination of these various advances has led many scholars to regard "Britannia" as the first major development in British cartography since the early 16th century. John Ogilby (1600--1676) is often noted in the literature for his wide ranging pursuits--dancer, actor, translator, tutor, among others--that, more often than not, ended in failure. But rather than thinking of these pursuits as unsuccessful, they might be better considered as steps toward his ultimate destiny: cartography. Ogilby got his first taste of the trade in 1666--himself at the age of 66--by surveying and mapping London after the Great Fire. The project inspired him to pursue and publish geographical descriptions of the wider world, including China, Japan, and Africa. In 1675, a year after he was appointed "Kings Cosmographer and Geographic Painter," he published the defining work of his career: a road atlas of England entitled "Britannia." The original volume was the first road atlas to include physical features from the landscape and was notable for its scale of one inch to a standard mile. This impressive and innovative volume finally secured Ogilby's place in the history books one of the most memorable and important figures of 17th-century cartography.

Calvo Rigual: «Traducciones de Savonarola en España, con noticia de algunas desconocidas», Philologia Hispalensis, 2008]. La obra aparece aquí a caballo de las polémicas imágenes históricas de Savonarola, entre la de un falso profeta apocalíptico y herético, incendiario de libros e intransigente fustigador de la moral pública, y la que por el contrario lo supone un hombre de intensa experiencia religiosa, sensible intérprete de la espiritualidad de su tiempo, lo cual evidenciaría que la reforma que intentó no provenía de intenciones políticas y seculares, sino de un apasionado amor por Cristo y de una intensa necesidad interior. Un libro complejo, a descifrar, dentro de una intrincada tradición carmelitana.

      Amsterdam: Im Jahr 1698.. 95,[1]pp. Small octavo. 19th century paper over boards. Engraved title vignette. Some surface chipping to binding at extremities, occasional early ink annotations (including the scoring through of a name and an attribute of another name on the dedication page), occasional light early underscores, two terminal text leaves a bit creased and torn at gutter, with no loss, but a good or better copy. One of two 1698 editions in German of Lead's A MESSAGE TO THE PHILADELPHIAN SOCIETY (London, 1696). The other has a completely different setting of the title-page, with a large floral device rather than the detailed allegorical engraving that appears in this copy. Lead (1624-1704), an English mystic and visionary heavily influenced by the writings of Jacob Boehme, gathered around her a circle of like minded individuals formalized as the Philadelphia Society for the Advancement of Piety and Divine Philosophy, which flourished until the years immediately following her death in 1704. The Society oversaw the publication of her works, and fostered converts in Europe, as well as in North America. This work includes an explanation of the Society's purpose as well as its constitution. Her writings had some influence on later generations of serious religious thinkers, as well as on esoterics of various flavors and a genuine crackpot or two. Lead's original English publications tend to be quite rare -- ESTC locates only 6 copies of the London printing of this text. And although OCLC/Worldcat finds a decent number of copies of this German text held by European institutions scattered among several records, Bethel College and Duke are the only North American locations recorded there for copies of one or the other original edition.

He was in Persia between 1677 and 1679, then returned to India until 1681. He arrived back in England in 1682 but could not be persuaded to publish an account of his travels for another seventeen years. Despite the delay, his account of the places he visited is accurate and reliable, with numerous anecdotes told with a fine sense of humour. He was appointed Fellow of the Royal Society in 1697, and his book was published by the Society's printer".- Howegego, Encyclopedia of Exploration to 1800, page 406, F87.

        The Road from York to West-Chester

      London: , 1698. Pl. 89 Size: 380 × 480 mm. Copperplate engraving with hand colour. Good. Map has been cleaned, and had minor professional repairs to margins. This handsome road map is from John Ogilby's 'Britannia', which was the first survey of the roads of England and Wales. It was also the first graphic delineation of roads which established the practice of representing the road on the continuous unfolding strip. It shows the journey from York to Warrington. The route is shown in seven strips, mile by mile, showing every town, village, wood and milestone along the way. Each strip has a compass rose showing north. Large decorated title cartouche at top centre with royal arms below. Major towns featured include: York, Leeds, Rochdale, Manchester and Warrington.

Even ha­Ezer - laws concerning Jewish marriage and divorce; third volume only of the four volume edition of the Shulhan Aruch issued by the famous Atias press of Amsterdam (Immanuel Atias: “Printer at Amsterdam till 1707; son and business successor of Joseph Athias. The most elegant editions of Hebrew works, among them Maimonides' ‘Yad ha-Hazakah, ’ etc. , were issued by his office. ” Joseph Atias: “Printer and publisher; born in Spain, probably at Cordova, at the beginning of the seventeenth century; died at Amsterdam, May 12, 1700. … Athias' printing-establishment was one of the best equipped in Amsterdam. His wealth enabled him to lavish money on the cutting and casting of type, and to demand artistic work of his designers and die-sinkers. The edition of Maimonides' Yad ha-Hazakah, with ‘Lehem Mishneh, ’ 5 vols. , Amsterdam, 1702-3, begun by Athias and completed after his death by his son Emanuel, is, as Steinschneider says, one of the most elegant and most admired products of the Hebrew press. ” – 1906 Jewish Encyclopedia) . “Caro wrote the Shulhan 'Aruk in his old age, for the benefit of those who did not possess the education necessary to understand the ‘Bet Yosef. ’ The arrangement of this work is the same as that adopted by Jacob b. Asher in his ‘Arba'ah Turim, ’ but more concise; nor are any authorities given. This book, which for centuries was, and in part still is, ‘the code’ of rabbinical Judaism for all ritual and legal questions that obtained after the destruction of the Temple, has a remarkable history, hardly paralleled by that of any other product of rabbinical literature. ” (1906 Jewish Encyclopedia) .

        Les Malades de Belle de belle Humeur ou Lettres Divertissantes ecrites de Chaudray.

      Michel Brunet, Paris 1698 - 12mo (6) ff., 424 (i.e. 432) pp. Bound in contemporary French mottled calf, covers triple gilt ruled, spine in six compartments with red morocco title label. Covers and corners somewhat abraded, engraved ex-libris Maurice Villaret on front-end paste down. Marbled end papers and edges; 1 large folding engraving of Dr Ozanne in his consulting room. Some leaves toned and an occasional spot in margin, otherwise very good. Very rare second edition (first 1697) of an enigmatic work that ranges in genre and subject matter from the epistolary novel to poetry, fictitious dialogues, artistic criticism, summaries of classical literary works, and even genuine letters between two important female writers of 17th C France. The work offers an intriguing research project in an age which championed the classical ideal of rigidly self-contained and well-defined genres. The volume opens with a description of the author¿s convalescence in the care of one Dr. Christophe Ozanne, an unlicensed rural physician in Chaudray (1633-1713), followed by a series of letters describing Ozanne, his home, his patients and his remedies. Curiously, in the present copy this first part of the work is preceded by a large folding plate, depicting Dr. Ozanne in his chambers. As we have located the plate in no other copy of the work, it is almost certainly an interpolation, most likely extracted from a work of Ozanne¿s, which we have been unable to identify. Bordelon¿s narrative is overtaken by the literary ephemera that makes this volume such a puzzle, not only for the heterogenous nature of its contents, but also the level of critical intelligence: poetry, a list of mirabilia, elementary plot summaries of Virgil and Homer, an appraisal of Italian vs. French music, etc. Yet the most significant of Bordelon¿s digressions is not fictitious at all: a 20-page excerpt of actual correspondence between the famed female novelist Madeleine de Scudéry and the poet Catherine Descartes, niece of René, including a poem by Scudéry that appears here in print for the first time. The Paris chaplain Abbè de Bordelon (1653-1730) enjoyed great celebrity during his lifetime, publishing dozens of works on a variety of topics. OCLC: Newberry. * Not in Cioranescu. Van Roosbroeck, ¿The ¿Unpublished¿ Poems of Mlle de Scudéry and Mlle Descartes,¿ Modern Language Notes, v. 40 no. 3 (Mar., 1925), pp. 155-158; Ramsey, Professional and Popular Medicine in France 1770-1830, p. 214 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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.. [70],389pp. plus folding map and four folding plates. 12mo. Modern vellum over boards, spine stamped, all edges red. 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. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 698/101. ARENTS 432. CHURCH 774n. HARISSE 177.
