         Voyages and Descriptions. Vol II. In Three Parts, viz. 1. A Supplement of the Voyage round the World....2. Two Voyages to Campeachy; ...3. A Discourse of Trade-Winds, Breezes, Storms, Seasons of the Year, Tides and Currents...

      London: James Knapton, 1699 A good copy of the 1st edition in contemporary speckled calf binding with 4 folding maps. William Dampier was a well-known sailor/buccaneer in the late 1600's. He documented his travels carefully and extensively - noting down what he saw, for example natural history, navigational issues, peoples, and trade. His published works were very popular because he wrote well and clearly. This is the second of his works, published 2 years after the first, and stands alone - covering two supplementary accounts of his voyages and a detailed section on trade winds, currents, weather and tides to aid future navigation. This copy is in a contemporary speckled calf binding with raised bands to spine blind-stamped decoration to boards. It has some wear and loss to the top and bottom of the spine and wear to the front spine joint. Internally there is no pastedown to the front and the ties are visible. The fep has some marking. Contents: initial blank; title page; dedication 2pp; Preface 3pp; Contents 1p; folding map; Part 1pp 1-184 finis; fold map; Part II 1-132 finis; half title; 2 folding maps; Part III 1-112 finis; General Index 76pp; errata; books by James Knapton 3pp. The contents are very clean with the occasional light mark. There is an ink mark to the foredge; loss to the bottom corner of p 67 in part 1 - no text affected; and a small repaired edge tear to the side margin of p63 in Part III. There is some mispagination: Pt I - 129-126-127-132; 137-134-135-140; 141-138-139-144. Pt III - 88-98-90. The text is continuous. A nice copy of an important work.

Piel de cofia perdida; charnelas abiertas; pérdidas consolidadas en los planos; algunos puntos de oxidación dispersos.- // Proc.: Sin datos.- // Refs.: La Lande, p. 334; Poggendorf, I, c. 1165.- // Cosmotheoros, la célebre obra póstuma de Huygens, publicada en 1698, fue su contribución al debate sobre la existencia de vida fuera de la tierra que había popularizado Fontenelle en 1686 con sus 'Entretiens sur la pluralité des mondes'. De hecho, las primeras notas para el libro comenzó a tomarlas al leer el de Fontenelle ese mismo año de 1686. Una de las circunstancias más curiosas de este debate es que transcurrió acerca de en qué planetas era en los que había vida y cómo serían esos habitantes y sus civilizaciones: todos los que participaron compartían la convicción de partida de que sí que había vida extraterrestre, lo que tiene su explicación en una herencia de los debates medievales sobre la potencia de Dios que se saldó con la idea de que puesto que no cabía negarle la potestad de haber dispuesto vida en otros mundos, seguro que la había (ya que lo que sí que no cabía en su visión de Dios era que fuese caprichoso). A diferencia de Fontenelle, Huygens rechazó la idea de que hubiese habitantes en la luna (selenitas a los que Fontenelle imaginó como seres roedores que vivían bajo tierra alimentándose de piedras) aduciendo que, como no tenía ni atmosfera ni agua, por ello tampoco posibilidad de vida. Y, sin embargo, no solo la defendió para el resto de los planetas, sino que hizo a sus habitantes análogos a los terrestres, con el mismo tipo de inteligencia, inquietudes, capacidades y conocimientos. Se ha señalado cómo, curiosamente, la exposición de datos científicamente argumentados sobre dimensiones y características físicas de los diferentes planetas del sistema solar que Huygens fue desgranando, servían más bien para rechazar la idea de que hubiese vida que para defenderla, como, en cambio, efectivamente hizo(1). Ese optimismo lo basó en lo que llamó probabilidad: le parecía dudoso que si en otros planetas se daban ambientes como aquellos en los que en la Tierra había seres animados, la ley de la naturaleza fuera tal que en ellos no se cumpliesen resultados semejantes, de donde colegía que debían darse esos seres animados y, si debía haberlos, por ese mismo argumento se asemejarían con seguridad en nutrirse y en reproducirse (¡momento que aprovecha para dar cuenta del recientísimo descubrimiento con el microscopio de los espermatozoides!). Con el mismo tipo de analogías supone que entre ellos habría seres dotados de sentidos y del gusto por elevarse por encima de ellos, llegando así a lanzar la hipótesis de que sin duda habría diferentes tipos de seres dotados de diferentes tipos de raciocinio. Algo para lo que no dudó en traer como prueba la afirmación de que en la Tierra el hombre no es el único ser racional, "ya que en todas estas criaturas [el perro, el mono, el castor, las abejas, algunas pájaros.] percibimos un raciocinio independiente y previo al aprendizaje o la práctica"(2). Y en su entusiasmo deductivo (en realidad, abductivo), Huygens llevó las analogías al extremo de imaginar que incluso vestirían y tendrían conocimientos astronómicos seguramente semejantes a los de los humanos en la Tierra. Ciertamente Huygens dejó margen a que sus facultades no serían todas idénticas a las de los [Attributes: Hard Cover]

His output was remarkable, consisting of biblical paraphrase, complimentary poems, and translations of long English works into Latin...Hogg is of particular interest as one of relatively few whig Latin poets (besides Joseph Addison)...he is easily the most productive Latin poet of the 1690s, and deserves further study." - ODNB Condition: Good only.

         Historischer Schauplatz derer natürlichen Merckwürdigkeiten in dem Meißnischen Ober-Ertzgebirge.

      Leipzig: In Verlegung Friedrich Lanckischens sel. Erben, druckts Immanuel Tietze, 1699. - 4to (20.6 x 16.5 cm.): [38], 1005, [33] pages; engraved frontispiece portrait of Lehmann inset within views of the Erzgebirge and [12] engraved plates (nine folded) comprising one map of the Annaberg district in the Erzgebirge, illustrations of mountains rock formations and topographical features, and views of Karlsbad, Wiesenbad, and Wolkenstein; also many wood-cut illustrations of flora and fauna, natural wonders, astronomical events, and curiosities throughout the text. Bound in 19th century half-calf over marbled paper boards, a little rubbed, but in very good condition. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION OF THIS VERY RARE WORK ON THE TOPOGRAPHY AND NATURAL HISTORY OF THE ERZGEBIRGE REGION OF SAXONY AND BOHEMIA. Christian Lehmann (1611-1688) was a German Protestant pastor, an important witness to the Thirty Years' War, and one of the most important chroniclers of the Erzgebirge. In keeping with prevailing habit among rules and scholars in pre-scientific Europe to assemble cabinets of curiosity, Lehmann travelled throughout his beloved Erzgebirge through much of his life in search of strange natural phenomena as well as manuscripts and antiquarian books. He interviewed priests, public officials and learned men as well as miners, farmers, herdsmen, and other mountain folk. The fruit of Lehmann's work was recorded in several manuscript volumes which he hoped to publish during his lifetime. Lehmann originally envisioned a six-volume work in Latin entitled "Pinifer Misniae Illustratus," but only the prospectus ever appeared (the single known copy of this prospectus is held by the Universitäts- und Landesbibliothek Sachsen-Anhalt in Halle, Germany). Lehmann's death in 1688 left the task of completing the work to his three sons, who undertook the task of sifting his manuscripts and stitching together a 1,000-page narrative that brought together scientific observation, folksy anecdotes and poetry, and piety. The final opus, based on Lehmann's notes and with additions by members of his family, can be regarded as a unique treasure trove of information on this corner of Central Europe. A second edition, nearly identical to the first but without Lehmann's name, was published in Leipzig in 1747.

His output was remarkable, consisting of biblical paraphrase, complimentary poems, and translations of long English works into Latin.Hogg is of particular interest as one of relatively few whig Latin poets (besides Joseph Addison).he is easily the most productive Latin poet of the 1690s, and deserves further study." - ODNB Condition: Good only.

His [book] is valuable not only for its description of the route and the Siberian tribes he encountered along the way, but especially for his vivid account of the embassy's experiences in China, his description of the Great Wall and Chinese frontier settlements, and his report of the embassy's reception in Peking. Brand includes a brief general description of China, which appears to have been taken from standard published works. His eyewitness reports of the temples he visited, the dust on Peking streets, the negotiations with Chinese officials, the official banquets he attended, and so forth, are his most important contributions to Europe's knowledge of Asia."

         The Christian"s Pattern: or, a Treatise of the Imitation of Jesus Christ. In Four Books. Written originally in Latin by Thomas a Kempis. Now render"d into English. To which are added Meditations and Prayers for Sick Persons [Second Edition]

      Printed by W Onley for M. Gillyflower in Westminster-Hall; R. Sare at Gray"s Inn-gate, T. Bennet in St. Paul"s Church-yard; F. Saunders in the New Exchange; and M. Wotton at the Three Daggers in Fleet-Street. 1699 - B004ALCOT0 1699 second Stanhope edition, 'Printed by W[illiam] Onley for M. Gillyflower, R. Sare, T. Bennet, F. Saunders and M. Wotton' (London), 3 1/2 x 5 3/4 inches tall full red leather bound, gilt lettering to spine, marbled endpapers, engraved frontispiece portrait of Stanhope and full-page engraving printed by Thomas Kelly preceding each of the four books, [12], 271, [1], ii, 38 pp., complete. Title page is moderately soiled, and has a one-inch closed tear from the left side of the page to the gutter. Quarter-inch closed tear to edge of following leaf (dedication). Otherwise, apart from a few pages with light marginal staining or foxing, a very good copy of the scarce second edition of this George Stanhope edition, which was reprinted over the ensuing years more than twenty times. In fact, Stanhope's was likely the most popular English edition of the Imitation of Christ throughout the eighteenth century and into the nineteenth, and the first and second editions of this translation are rare. The second edition employs engravings different than all other Stanhope editions, and is the smallest of them in size. References: Wing (2nd ed.), T946B; ESTC No. R220858. The English Short Title Catalog records only nine copies at institutions worldwide, with only three of those in North America (Harvard, Princeton and UCLA), and American Book Prices Current shows no copies coming up for auction in the past 30+ years. ~KM2~ George Stanhope (1660-1728) was a clergyman of the Church of England, rising to be Dean of Canterbury and a Royal Chaplain, and a leading figure in church politics of the early 18th century. Despite the popularity of this translation of the Imitation, as well as prior translations or adaptations of Epictetus, Charron's 'Books on Wisdom' and and Meditations by Marcus Aurelius, Stanhope's style has been criticized as overly paraphrastic, using 'flowing sentences that pleased the reader in Queen Anne's reign.' The Imitation of Christ was written by Catholic monk Thomas Kempis (circa 1380-1471), as four separate books completed between 1420 and 1427, at Mount Saint Agnes monastery, in the town of Windesheim, located in what is now the Netherlands. He wrote these works for the instruction of novices of his Augustinian monastic order, followers of Geert Groote's Brethren of the Common Life. But the writings quickly became popular among all the literate faithful. There is probably no other book apart from the Bible which has been printed in so many editions and translations.

In 1695 an act was passed by the Scottish parliament giving extensive powers to a company trading to Africa and the Indies; this company, under the advice of one of the most remarkable economists of the period, William Paterson, determined to establish a colony on the Isthmus of Darien, "whereby Britain would be secured the key to the universe, enabling their possessors to give laws to both oceans and to become the arbiters of a commercial world". This book, dated from the second year of the colony's struggles, presents these arguments and appeals to the English for help. But the venture ended in failure and defeat by the Spanish. The most interesting part is the description of the country which the settlers called New Caledonia ” (William Salloch, 1965, 558, for an incomplete copy).

         Theologiae Christianae Principia Mathematica.

      John Darby for Timothy Child 1699 - FIRST EDITION, diagrams in the text, minor browning and some spotting towards the end, pp. viii, 9-36, 4to, modern half calf. 'Craig's approach has long been the target of scorn, but I hope to convince the reader that in many respects he was three centuries ahead of his time, that his work was a remarkable early effort at the mathematical modelling of social processes, and that from one perspective it may legitimately be viewed as an anticipation of modern logistic regression' (Stigler, p. 252). Many critical comments and interpretations indicate the difficulty of understanding [Craig's] theory, which nevertheless inspired many of the great French probabilists in their works on a theory of testimony (Hald, p. 186). Pearson (p. 465) also praises Craig for his originality in devising a mathematical theory on this subject. Craig's tract has been variously assessed over time. It has even been said that it is a parody of Newton (as the phrasing of the title might suggest). There was a second edition in 1715, and a translation into English by Richard Nash in 1991. The first edition is rare in commerce. There are only 3 auction records for it: one in a tract volume in the Macclesfield sale, the Kenney copy in 1968, and the Bute copy, also in a tract volume, in 1961. See Anders Hald, History of probability and statistics and their applications before 1750 (2003); Karl Pearson, The history of statistics in the 17th and 18th centuries, ed. by E. S. Pearson (1978); Stephen Stigler, 'John Craig and the probability of history,' pp. 252-273 in Statistics on the table (1999). (ESTC R1725)

        The History of Caledonia, or the Scots Colony in Darien in the West Indies. With an account of the manners of the inhabitants, and riches of the Countrey [bound after] Bonutius, Judas; Varrerii, Gaspar. Historia Antiqua hoc est [bound with] Varrerii, Gaspar. Censura in quendam auctorem, qui sub falsa inscriptione Berosi Chaldaei circumfertur

      First edition of the History of Caledonia, from the Macclesfield Library, accompanied by two other works on ancient history; the book on Caledonia is an overview of the company "This interesting narrative contains an account of the Erecting of the Company of Scotland trading to Africa and the Indies, of the opposition against it, its progress and arrival of the expedition at thePort of New St. Andrew in Panama... It was opposed by William III., and failed, owing to the opposition of the Spaniards and the unhealthy climate." (Maggs, 1923, item 1992). "The first attempt to turn the Isthmus of Darien which connects Central and South America into a trade route forms an interesting chapter in Scottish history. In 1695 an act was passed by the Scottish parliament giving extensive powers to a company trading to Africa and the Indies; this company, under the advice of one of the most remarkable economists of the period, William Paterson, determined to establish a colony on the Isthmus of Darien, "whereby Britain would be secured the key to the universe, enabling their possessors to give laws to both oceans and to become the arbiters of a commercial world". This book, dated from the second year of the colony's struggles, presents these arguments and appeals to the English for help. But the venture ended in failure and defeat by the Spanish. The most interesting part is the description of the country which the settlers called New Caledonia..." (William Salloch, 1965, 558, for an incomplete copy). Provenance: Macclesfield Library, armorial engraved bookplate on front pastedown. Sabin 18556. Adams, V, 279.
