Hennepin, Louis:
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 tha … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: M. Bentley, J. Tonson et al, 1698. Rebacked with red leather label. Old endpapers retained. Old book-plate and owner name on front pastedown. Blind-stamped designs on both covers. Engraved plate adjacent to title-page with six additional folding plates. The two maps are not present. This is the so-called Tonson issue with Tonson being complete on first line of publishers on the title-page. The true first edition was the Utrecht edition in French of 1697. Two books in one: (22), 243; (32), 228. Plates include views of Niagara Falls, a wild bison, La Salle's sailing vessel Le Griffon, the murther(sic) of La Salle, the cruelty of the savage Iroquois, and the taking of Quebec by the English. Plates are intact, some with browning at edges, some toning and foxing, moreso on the first two plates, a few closed tears without paper loss, . Text is generally clean with mild to moderate foxing, never heavy. According to Howes, the first plate was the first view of Niagara Falls ever made. The title continues, "Also, the manners, customs, and languages of the several native Indians, and the advantage of commerce with those different nations; with a continuation giving an account of the Sieur de la Salle upon the mines of St Barbe, &c. The taking of Quebec by the English; with the advantages of a shorter cut to China and Japan". Father Louis Hennepin (1626-1705) was a Catholic priest and missionary, who accompanied La Salle on his trip of exploration into the interior of North America beginning in 1679. He is credited with being the first European to set foot ashore in Hannib … [Click Below for Full Description]

R.[obert] R.[oberts] for Ri[chard] Chiswell, London, 1698. x, xiii, 427, xxiv pp. Illus. with engraved frontispiece portrait of the author, 5 engraved plates (3 folding) and 3 maps, one with printed overslip; title in red and black, woodcut illustrations in text. Folio. "Fryer was a surgeon in the service of the East India Company for nine years and travelled extensively on the Coromandel and Malabar coasts. He describes well the cities of Surat and Bombay, the life and trade there as well as at Madras. Nearly sixteen years elapsed before he could be persuaded to publish the story of his wanderings. At length piqued at the frequent appearance of translations of foreign, especially French, books of travel, in which English industry and enterprise were decried, he issued a handsome folio," (Cox, 'Reference Guide To The Literature Of Travel, Vol I, p. 280). "As a surgeon in the service of the East India Company, he left England in December 1672 and arrived at Masulipatam in June 1673. He spent the following four years on the Coromandel and Malabar coasts, visiting and describing Surat, Bombay and Madras. He also travelled to Gokarna, Karwar, Goa, and ventured inland to Junnar. He was in Persia between 1677 and 1679, then returned to India until 1681. [his] account of the places he visited is accurate and reliable with numerous anecdotes told with a fine sense of humour'' (Howgego, 'Encyclopedia of Exploration to 1800', p.406).

[Aelfric, Abbot of Eynsham ( trans)]:
Oxoniæ [i.e. Oxford]: E Theatro Sheldoniano ... Typis Jvnianis, An. Dom 1698.. [8],168,32pp. Large octavo. Quarter modern black morocco and marbled boards, raised bands, gilt label. Engraved frontis, headpiece, and initial. Top margins very occasionally a trace dusty, otherwise a very good, crisp copy. First edition of this collection of translations into Anglo-Saxon of selections from the Old Testament and Apocrypha, edited by Edward Thwaites. The translations of the Heptateuch and Job are ascribed to Aelfric. The fine frontispiece and headpiece are the work of M. Burghers. "Thwaites's most important contribution to Anglo-Saxon studies was his 1698 edition of hitherto unedited parts of the Old Testament in Old English, including Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, and the book of Job, together with the apocryphal Judith and the Gospel of Nicodemus. ... Although some of his contemporaries criticized Thwaites's edition — partly because it included apocryphal material, partly for its lack of a Latin translation and notes — it was for its time a ground- breaking enterprise and one that was not repeated until 1922, when S. J. Crawford edited the Heptateuch afresh, using a different base manuscript. Thwaites's edition had been based on Bodleian MS Laud misc. 509, and his text was reprinted, with some emendations, by C. W. M. Grein in 1872. Thwaites dedicated his edition to George Hickes, at that time still proscribed as a nonjuror, and this caused some political embarrassment to the vice-chancellor, who threatened to suppress t … [Click Below for Full Description]

This revised constitution and rule was finally published after much discussion and compromise as made explicit on the title-page: "dispuestas por especial compromissa, de el discretorio de el capitulo provincial celebrado en el Convento de S. Diego de Mexico en I. de Diziembre de 1696: y aprobadas por su difinitorio en 23. de Iunio de 1697: y ultimamente revistas, y firmadas en 24. de Octubre de dicho año por los mismos compromissarios, y definitorio, que las saca à luz con las constituciones apostolicas pertenecientes á la ereccion de dicha provincia, mejor govierno, gracias, indultos, privilegios, y prerrogativas de la Franciscana Descalcez, y su Precedencia seraphica respecto de la chervbica familia de N.

Despite the rather dry legal-administrative language there, we learn much from this about => life among the Mexican Franciscans: 1) that they are prohibited to attend bull fights and to play at cards and dice, 2) how they are to address each other, 3) when they may be put to torture in investigations, 4) their penalties for simony, 5) who they may allow to be buried in their churches, 6) how they are to conduct relations with women, and so on as to many, many more aspects of daily life.

Gillberg, Jacob (1724-1793)
Fysiognomisk studie. Teckning i svart krita med förhöjningar i vitt. Signerad »J. Gillberg delineavit». 40?×?32,5 cm. Inramad. Fysiognomiken var en lära med sina rötter i antiken. Den försökte utröna sambandet mellan själsliga tillstånd och kroppsliga uttryck och fick betydelse även för målarkonsten. Den franske hovmålaren Charles Le Brun utgav en inflytelserik traktat i ämnet, Conference [...] sur l'expression generale & particuliere (1698), som synes ha påverkat även Gillberg. Två ambitiöst utförda fysiognomiska studier av hans hand finns bevarade, dels Förskräckelsen (la Frayeur, privat ägo), dels denna ståtliga teckning, som representerar Vreden (la Colère). I sin bok beskriver Le Brun hur denna känsla uttrycks (här i John Williams' engelska översättning från 1734): »When Anger seizes the soul, it is expressed by red and fiery eyes; the pupil wild and flashing, the eyebrows alike, either lifted up or depress'd; the forehead very frowning, with wrinkles between the eyes; the nostrils open and extended; the lips pressing together, the under one rising above the upper, leaving the corners of the mouth somewhat open, and forming a cruel and disdainful smile» (1)..

LAMBERT, Johann Heinrich.
A fine copy, in contemporary German blind-tooled calf, of this rarity in which Lambert laid the foundation for the exact measurement of light (PMM 205; Grolier/Horblit 62; Norman 1269). <br/><br/> Lambert's discoveries "are of fundamental importance in astronomy, photography and visual research generally ... Both Kepler and Huygens had investigated the intensity of light, and the first photometer had been constructed by Pierre Bouguer (1698-1758); but the foundation of the science of photometry - the exact scientific measurement of light - was laid by Lambert's 'Photometry' ... In the <i>Photometria</i> he described his photometer and propounded the law of the absorption of light named after him. He investigated the principles and properties of light, of light passing through transparent media, light reflected from opaque surfaces, physiological optics, the scattering of light passing through transparent media, the comparative luminosity of the heavenly bodies and the relative intensities of coloured lights and shadows" (Printing and the Mind of Man). Provenance: Verso of title page with unidentified monogram stamp 'VF' surrounded by laurel wreath, repeated on final page and last plate.

The Reduction of Interest of Money to 4 l. per Centum is Recommended.

Goldsmith 3486; Kress 2070; Wing C3862. A classic work first appearing in 1668 under a different title and as a thin pamphlet (reprinted in 1689); this was enormously expanded for the 1690 edition which was reprinted in 1693 (and at that time retitled for the first time as here) and 1694. Child was one of the most influential English mercantilist authors of the seventeenth century. His preoccupation with Dutch expansionism naturally leads him into a detailed examination of the commercial battles between Britain and Holland and America and 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; an … [Click Below for Full Description]

Poems on Affairs of State,
1698 Octavo, 7.4 x 4.6 inches. First edition. A-B8, C4, D-X8. This copy is bound in seventeenth-century calf, tooled in blind. The front joint is starting to crack. This collection of poems, contains two poems by Aphra Behn, "Bajazet to Gloriana" and "Desire, A Pindaric." It also gathers together the satirical writings important works by John Wilmot Earl of Rochester, "The History of Insipids," "Rochester's Farewell," and "On King Charles." Other key literary and political figures from the turbulent period of the English Civil War and protectorate are represented as well. "A number of these tracts were too scurrilous to see the light of day during the time; as it was, scandals erupted and party allegiances shifted frequently enough that more than one of these writers found themselves on the wrong side of the political fence. Milton, for example, was narrowly rescued by Andrew Marvell from probable execution when Milton's virulent anti-royalist opinions erupted at the end of Charles I's reign; Dryden more skillfully negotiated the shifting political tide. This collection is interesting both for this wealth of primary historical comment, as well as for its literary merit-although that merit is often found to be exaggerated; despite the genre's lofty intent, these works at times devolved from satire into invective. "At such times of crisis as the Dutch wars, the Popish Plot, or the bringing in of the Exclusion Bill, the normal stream of satirical verse became a flood. Most of this verse was anonymous, but some of it … [Click Below for Full Description]

Contemporary limp vellum, remnants of ties, spine lettered in ink, slightly soiled, else fine, a most attractive binding. Worm holes to several leaves at the beginning, some affecting a little text, a few foxing spots and damp staining, else a remarkably fresh and clean copy.- First edition. Carabantes (1628 – 1694) was one of the first Capuchin missionaries in America; although his name was Velazquez, he changed his name for that of his hometown in 1645, when entering the order. In 1657, he arrived in the Island of Margarita (Venezuela), from there he went on to Caracas and Cumana, where he was able to evangelize the Caribes, a tribe notorious for its cruelty and ferocity. As often, the missionary learned the natives tongue and wrote subsequently a vocabulary for the missionaries. His stay in the region lasted for 9 years, after which he had to travel back to Spain to defend his fellow missionaries; after that, he planned to return to the Americas, but his superiors decided to keep him in Spain, where death found him short after. It is attributed to him the conversion of five “caciques” (denomination for the chiefs of the tribes). It is with little doubt one of the few, and more primitive, sources of information extant on several Provinces of Venezuela and local tribes amongst them, the Caribes, Cuacas, Tapies, etc. A copy of the “Copia de Carta escrita al Excelentissimo Señor Marques de Aytona” published in … [Click Below for Full Description]

His new post required him not only to teach botany but also to enrich the holdings of live plants in the garden. He was ONE OF EUROPE'S MOST NOTED BOTANIST and had dozens of correspondents. What botany owes to TOURNEFORT is not the inventon of the iotaxonomic genus, but rather the creation of the concept of the genus in the modern sense and its first skillful application. TOURNEFORT's conception of genus contains a fundamental new contribution that was elaborated in the work of Linnaeus, Bernard de Jussieu and Adanson. On the level of principles, TOURNEFORT contributed powerfully and brilliantly to the establishment of objectivity in taxonomy and of research methods suitable for a natural method of classification. He payed a decisive role in the emancipation of botany from medicine.". (DSB XIII pp. 442/444) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
