HENNEPIN, Louis
Amsterdam: (1698). Duodecimo, full contemporary calf, gilt boards bearing arms, raised bands to spine with gilt red calf title label. With 2 engraved folding maps and 2 engraved folding plates in excellent condition. With engraved frontispiece; (70), 313, (8 num 313*), pp. 315-506.; A magnificent example of a highly influential work from the famous noble library of Alexandre de La Rochefoucauld. Following the publication of Louis Hennepin's first work, the 'Description de la Louisiane' published in Paris, 1683, there were claims that he usurped the narrative of Robert Cavalier, Sieur La Salle. Hennepin (c.1640-c.1705) was banished from France for reasons unknown and fled to Utrecht about 1687. Indeed Louis XIV later issued an edict ordering his arrest should he arrive at any French port. In 1697 Guillaume Broedelet published Louis Hennepin's second work entitled Nouvelle Decouverte ... It contained the body of his first work and is updated with a new account inserted before the description of his voyage up the Mississippi River describing his journey down river to the mouth, and back. It is actually drawn from the journal of Father Zenobius Membré as published in the Etablissement de la Roy dans la Nouvelle France by the Jesuit Chrestien Le Clerc in Paris, 1691 and is discounted as entirely fictional by authorities. Hennepin in fact claimed the reverse was the case. One of the views is the first of Niagara Falls. One of the book's chief claims to fame is containing the first illustration of Niagara Falls. Hennepin's account of the Upper Mississippi has great significance as … [Click Below for Full Description]

Las Casas, Bartolom� de
Amsterdam, 1698. [10],402,[2]; [4],51,[1]pp., plus frontispiece. 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 en … [Click Below for Full Description]

RIDINGER, Johann Elias.
Cobres 310; Dejager 252; Mennessier de la Lance II, 429; Nissen, ZBI 3418; for the Adalbert von Lanna collection: Lugt I, pp. 516 ff. (no. 2773). Rare first edition, in German and French, of a great coloured print series, with a 39-page letterpress text, showing horses in a wide variety of colours and patterns by Johann Elias Ridinger (1698-1767), a German painter, graphic artist and engraver of animals, most famous for his horses: "one of the most beautiful illustrated animal books of the 18th century ... lavishly illustrated and also very rare" (Dejager). Together with the book we offer Ridinger's fine original pen and ink, ink wash and chalk drawing for the second plate. While many books or print series on horses show them standing or occasionally running in a race, most portraits in the present series show them much more naturally: stamping or pawing the ground, rearing up, jumping, kicking, sitting and rolling on the ground. When they do stand still they are often turning their heads.With significant tears in 2 plates, unobtrusively repaired without loss, but otherwise in good condition, with minor, mostly marginal repairs, small smudges or stains, or minor browned patches in a few other plates. The drawing has a minor crease in the paper, affecting only the background, but is otherwise in fine condition, with only a couple minor marginal defects, not approaching the drawn image. A beautiful and charming horse book, essential to any collection, with the original drawing for one of the plates in fine condition.

LADMIRAL, Jan and Frederik RUYSCH.
1698. Franklin, Colour printing, pp. 41-42, items 3 & 4; Landwehr, Coloured Plates 107 (mistakenly giving the title of 108) & 108; Lilly library 101; STCN (8 & 7 copies); Wellcome Lib., p. 428; not in Norman Library. First editions of two anatomical descriptions of parts of the brain of a fetus, originally preserved and drawn by the Dutch anatomist Frederik Ruysch and here colour printed by Jan Ladmiral. They are pioneering applications of colour printing, among of the earliest colour-printed anatomical illustrations. The first depicts the interior brain tissue of a fetus about 8 months after conception, The second (which refers to the other as already published) shows the surface tissue of the same brain. Each gives the explanation of the plate in Latin, French and Dutch, These explanations also note that the illustrations are not painted but "tot verwondering" (amazingly) printed at a press "door een ongehoorde konst" (by use of an unprecedented art).The painter Jan Ladmiral (1698-1773) and his brother Jacob were pupils and assistants of Jacob Christoph le Blon in London, who invented the method of mezzotint colour printing. It seems that when Ladmiral offered his services to the famous Albinus in Leiden, he presented this technique as entirely new and his own, without ever mentioning Le Blon. Ladmiral produced 6 such anatomical illustrations for 6 separate publications, later published together under the joint title: Anatomische voorwerpen door Jan Ladmiral.With the letterpress leaves browned, but the illustration in very good condition.
