TYSON, Edward. M.D.
London Thomas Bennet, Daniel Brown, Mr. Hunt, 1699. First Edition. Recently rebound, full leather binding with 5 raised bands to the spine, two compartments with gilt titled leather labels and date in gilt at the foot. [xii] 1-108 [ii] 1-58 [2], 8 folding plates after William Cowper (1666-1709) by Michael Vander Gucht (1660-1725). This work represents the first formulation of the idea of the 'missing link', which was more fully explored by the works of Huxley and Darwin in the 19th century. The boards are in fine condition. The fore edges of three leaves have been conserved such that they show a 5mm or so band of japanese paper. The title page has two areas of loss that have been conserved, as has a tiny chip at the edge of p5. All folding plates are in very good condition, though several have small areas on conservation on the folded edges and plate one has a very small tear at the joint. There is slight rippling to some pages, light general spotting mainly, but not exclusively, to the wide fore edge margins which are toned as would be expected. 'The first work to demonstrate scientifically the structural relationships between man and anthropoid ape' (Norman). 'The earliest important study in comparative morphology. [Tyson] established a new family of anthropoid apes standing between monkey and man. [he] did not foresee the theory of evolution, but his work contributed substantially to its formulation and in that sense he was a forerunner of Blumenbach, Buffon, Huxley and Darwin' (PMM).

BIBLE - (R.P. Pasquier QUESNEL)
André Pralard,, Paris, 1699. 4 volumes in-8 (195 x 125 mm), illustré d'un frontispice dessiné par Antoine Coypel et gravé par Simonneau. Reliure janseniste en maroquin rouge, les dos à nerfs et les plats sont encadrés d'un simple et discret filet à froid, roulette dorée sur les coupes et intérieure, tranches dorées sur marbrure, exemplaire réglé. (Reliure d'époque.) Très bel exemplaire. Célèbre ouvrage dans lequel on trouve les 101 propositions qui furent condamnées en 1713 par la bulle Unigenitus du pape Clément XI.Les controverses autour de cet ouvrage se cristalliseront autour de deux problèmatiques. À la fin du XVIIe siècle le parti des dévôts et des ultramontains suit la doctrine espagnole qui interdit la lecture de la Bible aux laïcs. Pour les gallicans modérés, la lecture du N. T. est réservé au laïc qui en a la capacité et qui a obtenu l'autorisation du clerc. Le texte, selon les prescriptions du Concile de Trente, doit être accompagné d'une explication par la Tradition patristique, Pères et auteurs ecclésiastiques. Le N. T. de Pasquier Quesnel propose non une compilation des analyses acceptées par la Tradition mais sa propre lecture menée dans un sens exclusivement moral. Dans la pensée janséniste, et particulièrement pour Quesnel, la lecture de la Bible est une obligation morale pour tous les catholiques, un devoir de conscience. Ce sera le deuxième point de friction avec les traditionnalistes et avec Rome. (Bogaert, Les Bibles en français, Brepols, 1991.) Pasquier QUESNEL (Paris 1634 - Amsterdam 1719), théologien et moraliste, fut à 28 ans à la tête de l'Oratoire … [Click Below for Full Description]

Apologia de' Padri Domenicani missionarii della China, overo rispostra al libro del P. le Tellier Giesuita intitolato Desesa de' nuovi cristiani, ed alla Dichiarazione del Padre Le Gobien della medesima compagnia.Including: Documenta controversiam missionarum apostolicorum imperii sinici de cultu praefertim Confucii philosophi, & progenitorum defunctorum spectantia...Cologne, heirs of Cornelis d'Egmond, 1699. 2 parts in 1 volume. 8vo. Contempary vellum. 613 [= 495], [1]; 193, [3] pp. An Italian edition, published in the same year as the French original, of a treatise aimed at the Jesuits Michel le Tellier and Charles le Gobien. The debate between the Dominicans and the Jesuits, known as the Rites Controversy, had arisen over the question whether the Chinese rituals used to honour ancestors and Confucius constituted idolatry. The Jesuits partly adapted to a Chinese lifestyle, and held that converts should be allowed to continue to participate in the rites for Confucius. The Dominican refused any adaptation to local custom and were appalled by the Jesuit practices. The French theologian and church historian Noël Alexandre (1639-1724) joined the Dominicans in 1654 and taught philosophy at the Paris convent Saint-Jacques. According to Weller, the French original edition was printed in Amsterdam. The lay-out of the present edition, however, is rather a-typical for books printed in Amsterdam.Fine copy.

Juan Muñoz y Peralta
Seville: Juan de la Puerta, 1699. SPANISH CONVERSO CHALLENGES THE MEDICAL ESTABLISHMENT WITH CHEMISTRY ¶ [24], 67, [1] p. + [1] plate | 4to | ¶-3¶^4 A-H^4 I^2 | 200 x 148 mm ¶ First edition of what is ostensibly a treatise on the therapeutic effects of quinine (a malaria treatment), but is equally, if not more so, a defense of the author's modern chemical medicine. The title's reference to a work by Salamanca professor Joseph Colmenero must be to his Reprobacion del pernicioso abuso de...china china (Salamanca, 1697). ¶ Muñoz y Peralta, erstwhile attending physician to King Philip V, was co-founder and inaugural president of the Royal Medical Society of Seville, whose members "unhesitatingly entered into the greatest controversies of their day" (Pérez). The controversy stemmed from certain doctors, Muñoz y Peralta prominent among them, who wished to expand medical treatment to include the developing field of chemical medicine. The reigning academic physicians, unflappably loyal to the likes of Galen and Hippocrates, couldn't countenance yielding such ground to these proto-pharmacists. Accusations of occultism and spellcasting followed, but the courts did finally allow Muñoz y Peralta to establish the new society. ¶ The traditional physicians' perspective was not without merit, since "medicine as a whole was in danger of falling into disrepute and discredit in all of Europe in the late seventeenth century. Here, too, alchemy and chemical medicine played a role. There were many who, while protected by the inexorable advance of chemistry, tended to undermine its … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vinne, Joacob Laurensz van der (1688-1737) after Ostade, Adriaen van (1610-1685) and Brakenburg, Richard (1650-1702)
"Complete set of seven etchings van der Vinne realized when he was just eleven years old. All the plates are copied after Adriaen van Ostade's works and are in reverse. The set is stitched on the left as a small album. The set is signed on the first etching: 'Jacob Vander Vinne fecit et excudit / ANNN(sic!) 1699'.The frontispiece features three heads of old men, the one in the middle in a square frame, the ones on the sides in rounded frames. The second plate, 'The seller of Spectacles' has been retouched with pen and brown ink on the fence of the window, on the top left. The third plate, 'The empty jug' shows three peasants in an inn conversing around a table, looking at an empty jug. The fourth plate depicts a knife grinder, working in the middle of the street. On the bottom of the fifth plate, the 'Pater Familias' is an inscription in Dutch: 'Eet soete kintjes eet je livertjes sijne Reet'. The sixth plate shows a small concert, as in an interior a man plays the violin while a woman sings and another man, sitting opposite to the woman, sings along with a glass of beer in his hand. The last plate from the set is a copy after a painting by Richard Brakenburg (1650-1702). Possibly, this last impression is the same etching inv.

CRULL, Jodocus (editor) and BOUVET, Joachim
F. Coggan, London, 1699. Fine copy, with a noble English provenance and unusual binding pattern, of this uncommon, contempo-rary English account of the simultaneous reigns of two great emperors: Peter the Great (1672-1725) and Kang-Hsi (1654-1722). After Smyth or Fletcher s pioneering works, and mostly after Peter the Great s embassy to Europe in 1697-98, more attention was progressively given to the Eastern great powers. This was the opportunity for a few new publications to appear, such as the present work published shortly after Peter s journey to Britain in February-April 1698. It relates in particular the recent Streltsy revolts of 1682 and even 1698, gives some highlights of this Great Embassy , and offers charming physical and historical descriptions, which also include numerous anecdotes with the Chinese emperor, some inter-esting comments on the people and languages of Siberia and on the trade between Russians and Chinese. While Crull (d. 1713?) wrote an Antient [sic] and Present State of Muscovy published in 1698, he appears to be only the editor of the present two letters , which remain the work of an unknown author. The missionary father Bouvet (1656-1730) is the author of the Chinese account, which has a separate pagination under the title The history of Cang-Hy, the present emperour of China, a translation of his Histoire de l empereur de la Chine.

Captain William Hicks
C Hitch and L Hawes, London, 1699. 'Whitty Jests, Merry Tales, Pleasant Joques' in this rare late seventeenth century jest book 'Collected and Composed by Captain W. Hicks, Native of Oxford. The Eight Edition Corrected.' Bound in twentieth century sheepskin with most of the nineteenth century spine of the previous binding relaid; new endpapers. The book collates complete as per ESTC, pp 180, a little browning especially to the first few leaves but a very good copy of a book rarely encountered in trade - there are no copies in auction records of any edition of Oxford Jests. Following on from the prefatory material the book is made up of 583 jokes and humorous anecdotes. Among the many stereotypical targets of the book's broad and essentially predictable satire are Welshmen, women of all ages, Oxford scholars and the Mayor of Abingdon. Despite the popularity of these Oxford Jests they survive in low numbers. Hicks himself attracted some approbrium for hitching his jest book to the city of Oxford with the implication that it was in some way attached to the university, an association he plays on in the jests themselves. ESTC and Copac locate 8 English library locations and 2 in the USA at Yale & Claremont. Incorrectly, ESTC post-dates the book to '1760?' although Yale and Claremont are correct in attributing it to 1698 where this self-evidently late seventeenth century imprint which describes itself as the 'eight' edition then sits correctly in the sequence of known imprints of Oxford Jests.

Hindmarsh,, 1699. Extra-illustrated Tall quarto (310 x 194 mm). Twentieth-century sprinkled calf, spine gilt in compartments with red morocco title label, sides panelled in blind with floral rolls and cornerpieces, board edges gilt-rolled, red edges. Engraved frontispiece portrait of L'Estrange, extra-illustrated with 136 engraved plates by Francis Barlow, some signed by the engraver Tho. Dudley, laid down. Some faint tanning or spots to leaves, and occasional pencil annotations, but overall an excellent copy. Third edition, extra-illustrated copy, with a complete suite of Francis Barlow's etchings engraved by Thomas Dudley bound in to face the relevant fables. Though the Barlow plates were first published in 1666, they were first published alongside L'Estrange's text in the first French language edition (Amsterdam: Estienne Roger, 1714). The plates here are taken from that edition; presumably the English owner had seen the edition, liked what he saw, and had the plates from it bound in to improve his own copy.

LISTER, Dr Martin; SORBIER, Samuel (William King)
John Tonson, 1699. 12x19.5cm. Two volumes bound together: A Journey To Paris in The Year 1698, 3rd Edition, vi, 248, 6 plates, 2 folding; A Journey To London, In the Year 1698, 2nd Edition, viii, 36. Contemporary blind stamp panelled calf, rebacked a considerable time ago, spine with leather label lettered in gilt and date at the foot. The corners of the boards are very worn and there are areas of calf missing from front board near the fore edge and the rear board near to the joint. There are what appear to be two worm holes in the rebacked leather, though no further sign of worm damage. The binding is firm and square. Internally, there is a bookplate to the front pastedown. There is water staining mainly to the fore edge margins of most pages and more substantially across many others, such that virtually every page is affected to some extent. One of the two folding plates has one half missing. Over all, a very presentable volume unusual in that it includes the extremely scarce William King parody of Lister.
