Le passage de la grande comète de 1680, ou comète de Kirch, fut l'occasion pour Bayle de s'attaquer à la superstition à l'idolâtrie et au fanatisme religieux. Il dénonce la superstition liée aux malheurs prochains annoncés par le passage d'une comète et l'habitude générale de ramener tout ce que l'on ne comprend pas à une action divine, parce que les connaissances de l'époque ne permettaient pas d'expliquer son origine, sa formation ou, par exemple, le fait qu'elle ait une queue, la comète devenait un présage divin. À ce titre, Bayle n'annonce pas seulement les "Lumières", mais fonde la figure de l'« intellectuel critique » aux prises avec les défis de son temps. ¶ Caillet n°860 "Ouvrage fort savant... l'auteur y étudie toute les traditions, croyances... l'astrologie, la démonologie, la magie, la cabbale..."

        Once I was Alive and had Flesh Did Thrive But Now I am a Skellitan at 70. TBK.

      n.p. [c.1699] Illustrated folio broadside, woodcut portrait in oval border beneath title and above 16 lines of verse; a few creases & a little dusted, but a very nice copy. 39 x 24.5cm.ESTC R218862, BL only in UK; Huntington, Folger & Yale only in North America. ESTC attributes the opening verse to Thomas Barkworth ('identified by Cty'). However, Anthony A. Wood notes that this cypher ('Once I was alive ...') belonged to Thomas Baskerville, known as the 'King of Jerusalem' (Athenæ Oxonienses, 1848, pp 86-7.) He refers directly to this print, which he surmises was published in 1699: 'The portrait of Baskerville is supposed by Noble to have been engraved by Vertue, but by the execution this is hardly probable. He is represented in an oval, with a slouch-hat, over a large flowing wig, a neck-kerchief hanging long and loosely, and having his hands clasped together, a singular and miserable looking personage'. Wood quotes a passage from the diaries of Thomas Hearne, the antiquary and keeper of books at the Bodleian Library, explaining the history of the portrait: 'Baskerville 'was so whimsical a man as to call himself by the said title of the King of Jerusalem, and would ramble about all the country and pick up all strange odd things, good and bad, which he had written fair in two large folios, which he design'd to have printed, and for that end had his picture engrav'd which was to have been prefix'd as a frontispiece'. Baskerville died before the work could be published and one of the volumes found its way into the Harleian Collection. Thomas Baskerville, 1629-1705, is described in Chronicles of the Reigns of Edward I and Edward II, 1883, as an 'eccentric squire of Bayworth' a village in the parish of Sunningwell of which he was the Lord of the Manor.Baskerville's father had studied at Oxford, a few miles from Sunningwell, and although Thomas did not follow in his footsteps, he wrote an account of the town describing Oxford in the period after the Restoration (Evans, The University of Oxford: a new history). Baskverville 'was a collector of manuscripts and in the year 1678 had books and manuscripts which were in Hearne's opinion of very good value and great curiosity'. Indeed, Hearne had wanted to acquire Baskerville's books after his death but failed to do so. DNB erroneously notes that he died on February 9, 1720, this in fact, the date of his son's death.

Early full calf, spine very richly gilt in five compartments divided by raised bands, red morocco lettering piece gilt. On the front paste appears the engraved armorial bookplate of John Rolle, Baron Rolle of Stevenstone (1750-1842). An excellent example, occasional toning, very sporadically scattered marginal foxing, else a clean, crisp copy in handsome period binding. Wing L2527. Near Fine Third Edition (so stated), preceded by two editions of the same year. An account of the author's travels to Paris, overflowing with observations of natural history collections, estates and libraries of Parisian society and commentary on science, art, food, wine, medicine, and more. "Late in 1697, William Bentinck, Lord Portland, was sent on a diplomatic mission to Paris, and Lister accompanied him as physician. His duties left him ample time to meet and talk with other intellectuals, to see their collections and gardens, and to explore the city. He was there for six months and shortly after his return published A Journey to Paris in the Year 1698 (1699). The book ran to three editions within a year, but was lampooned by William King for its supposed triviality. In fact, it is a unique first-hand account of Parisian scientific society, and a useful description of the city and its life." (ODNB) N. B.

        Het Niew Hollandt.

      Venice: circa 1688-1699. Engraved gore sheet, 485 x 335 mm (sheet size); mounted. A gore sheet, designed to be pasted onto a globe, and an important map of Australia: this single sheet by the great Venetian cartographer Coronelli shows the north western coast in some detail. This particular gore is famous for the fanciful depiction of inland Australia, and shows Arnhem Land complete with palm trees, reindeer and elephants.This detailed map was first engraved as a gore - or globe segment - for Coronelli's colossal terrestrial globe of 1688. Measuring over one metre in diameter, this was one of the largest printed globes ever produced; its engraving was of the highest order, and reflected the most up-to-date and accurate information available at the time. It particularly reflects the discoveries made during the first voyage of Abel Tasman in 1642.The gore offered here, with relevant text at the bottom and verso of the sheet, was probably from the set of twelve plates published in atlas format in the 1696-97 edition of Coronelli's Isolario and later in his Libro dei Globi. A few short tears at extremities, but in fine condition nonetheless.

        Mémoire concernant la Généralité de La Rochelle. Année 1699.

      1699. ____ Manuscrit, d'une écriture lisible, d'un rapport établi par Michel Bégon, intendant de la Généralité de La Rochelle à la suite de la demande faite dans toutes les provinces de France à la fin du XVIIe siècle, par le Duc de Beauvillier, pour l'instruction de son élève le Duc de Bourgogne, petit-fils de Louis XIV. L'enquête se déroula de 1697 à 1700 et avait pour but de présenter un tableau exact du royaume. Ce mémoire circulait sous forme manuscrite et rares sont les exemplaires qui nous sont parvenus. Cet important document fournit sur cette province à l'époque de Louis XIV un tableau des plus complets. Les habitants "de La Rochelle et Saintes sont assez polis, et on peut dire que le peuple n'y est pas si grossier qu'ailleurs ; mais sur les côtes de la mer et des rivières et dans les îles, ce sont des matelots ou des gens qui n'ont société qu'avec eux." "On sait que cette province a été infestée de l'hérésie, plus qu'aucune autre du Royaume. ... les curés dont la plus grande partie sont très ignorants, très intéressés, chicaneurs et peu charitables." "Ce que cette province a de particulier, c'est le sel, qui est sans contredit le meilleur de l'univers pour conserver la viande et le poisson salé." Une table des chapitres au début du volume : Etablissements, rivières, situation, climat, commerce, manufactures, naturel des habitants, étendue, gouvernement militaire, présidiaux, villes principales, total des paroisses, forêts, les désordres de la religion, chasse, Pays d'Aunis, histoire de La Rochelle, fortifications, le fief de St. Louis, Rochefort, Benon, Nuaillé, Mauléon, Chastillon, Mauzé, Marans, Ile de Ré, De la Saintonge en général, Saintes, Saint Jean d'Angely, Pons, Taillebourg, Brouage, Tomay, Charente, Soubize, Marennes, Arvert, La Tremblade, Saujon, Royan, Talmon sur Gironde, la Tour de Cordouan, l'île d'Oléron, Barbesieux, Mortagne, Contras, Matha, Chalais, Cognac, marais salants, marais gats, marais desséchés, état des paroisses de la généralité de La Rochelle avec l'imposition de l'année 1698.

        Several Essays in Political Arithmetick: the titles of which follow in the ensuing pages.

      First edition London: Robert Clavel and Henry Mortlock, 1699. Very rare complete copy of this collection of Petty's essays on demography and economics, "including the influential Political Arithmetick (first published 1690), a major comparative study of the wealth and economic policies of England and her rivals France and Holland. This was the first of Petty's works to contain in its title the phrase he had coined to describe the application of statistics to economic theory and policy. Petty was the first to employ numerical evaluation in economics, and his work provided the decisive impulse toward econometrics and the general application of statistics" (Norman). ?Garrison-Morton 1688; Norman 1688 (lacking several of the part-titles). After studying French, mathematics, astronomy and navigation at Caen, several years in the Royal Navy, and during the Civil Wars several more years of study, particularly medicine, at Utrecht, Petty (1623-87) returned to England in 1647, got his doctor's degree in medicine, and became Professor of Anatomy at Oxford in 1650, where he made the acquaintance of John Graunt. In 1652 he was appointed physician to the army in Ireland, and from 1655 to 1656 he undertook a survey of Ireland, called the 'down survey,' as a basis for the distribution of forfeited lands to army officers and soldiers. Petty himself also took over a great deal of land, which was to make him a very wealthy man. Returning to England in 1659, he joined a group of natural scientists who met at Gresham College and eventually founded the Royal Society in 1662. After the Restoration he was knighted and appointed Surveyor-General of Ireland. "What Petty wrote, about both Ireland and England, blended exact statistical information with fanciful projections. True to his belief in the empirical method, learned on the continent early in the 1640s, he aimed to end idle speculation by expressing all in 'number, weight and measure'. This statistical precision certainly added to the novelty and authority of The Political Arithmetic and Anatomy of Ireland. The precision owed much to his access to the cadastral data which had been collected under his own auspices during the down survey, and later when poll and hearth taxes were levied in Ireland and as bills of mortality enumerated and classified the dead both in London and Dublin... "Petty did not confine his advice and reflections to Ireland. In England, he concerned himself with agriculture, industry, technology, population, architecture, and medicine. He also interested himself in the demography of London, now more clearly revealed in the weekly bills of mortality. In association with John Graunt he analysed this material and used it to predict future trends. During the 1680s these analytical techniques were applied to Dublin. Petty examined the wealth, potential and actual, of England. He saw labour as the key to increased national prosperity. Like other commentators he sought lessons from the evident successes of the United Provinces and France under Colbert. The novelty in Petty's approach was to quantify... by abstracting numbers and using these as the basis of calculation, whether of profit and loss in his own Irish ironworks or English trades and industries, he constructed the method known as political arithmetic which was widely copied in the later seventeenth century (and beyond). In addition, by isolating such issues as the velocity of circulation, the difference between the natural and market price of a commodity, and the theory of economic surplus, he established important themes and methods for classical economists" (ODNB). The essays included in this volume, each of which have a separate dated title page, are: An essay concerning the multiplication of mankind (1698); Further observations upon the Dublin bills (1698); Two essays in political arithmetic (1699); Observations upon the cities of London and Rome (1699); Five essays in political arithmetic (1699); Political arithmetick, or a discourse concerning the extent and value of lands (1699). Five essays has a French title page facing the English one, the text being printed in French on versos and English on rectos, with facing pages bearing duplicate pagination. It comprises: I. Objections from the city of Rey in Persia, and from Mons. Auzout, against two former essays, answered, and that London hath as many people as Paris, Rome and Rouen put together. II. A comparison between London and Paris in 14 particulars. III. Proofs that at London, within its 134 parishes named in the Bills of mortality, there live about 696 thousand people. IV. An estimate of the people in London, Paris, Amsterdam, Venice, Rome, Dublin, Bristol and Rouen. V. Concerning Holland and the rest of the seven United Provinces. Garrison-Morton 1688; Keynes Petty 46; Norman 1688; Wing P-1937; ESTC R22460. 8vo (184 x 112 mm), pp. [iv], [1-4], 5-103, [2], 105-139 (each page number in this series repeated, with English and French on opposite pages), [140-160], 161-276.

The Animal of which I have given the Anatomy, coming nearest to mankind; seems the Nexus of the Animal and Rational" (Tyson, from The Epistle Dedicatory). This 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 'typical pygmy' which Tyson placed between man and monkey was in fact an African chimpanzee. "The earliest important study in comparative morphology ... he established a new family of anthropoid apes standing between monkey and man ... Tyson 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). *Joshua Brookes (1761-1833). "Brookes taught anatomy to approximately 7000 students over a forty-year period... [and was] generally esteemed to be among the best teachers of practical anatomy in London, having the benefit of original specimens rather than pictures" (ODNB). He assembled a vast collection of specimens of human and comparative anatomy, which he displayed in the two upper floors of his house in Blenheim Street. The collection, dispersed in sales in 1828 and 1830, was considered as second only to that of John Hunter. Very Good.

      Lugduni Batavorum [Leiden] Apud Fredericum Haaring, et Davidem Severinum Bibliopolas [through 1700] 1699 First Leiden Edition of the Dialogo (Fourth Latin Edition, Fifth Edition overall) of Galileo's celebrated defense of the Copernican view of the solar system, bound with bound with the First Latin Edition (third overall) of the Two New Sciences. Two volumes in one. 4to: [16],494,[26]; [6],282(misprinted 826),[4], with copper-engraved portrait of Galileo, additional engraved title page (after Stefano della Bella), dated 1700, showing Aristotle, Ptolemy and Copernicus discussing the heliocentric and geocentric models of the solar system, and numerous woodcut illustrations. In addition to Galileo's texts, this edition includes (following conclusion of the Dialogo) the introduction to "Astronomia nova" (pp. 446-454), in which Johannes Kepler argued in favor of heliocentrism based upon his ten-year-long investigation of the motion of Mars; the Latin translation of Paolo Antonio Foscarini's "Epistola R.P.M. Pauli Antonii Foscarini, Carmelitani, circa Pythagoricorum, & Copernici opinionem de mobilitate terræ, et stabilitate solis: et de novo systemate seu consitiutione mundi" (Letter concerning the Opinion of the Pythagoreans and Copernicus about the Mobility of the Earth and Stability of the Sun, and the New Pythagorean System of the World, pp. 455-487), in which Foscarini defends the Copernican theory against charges that it conflicted with Scripture, and "The judgment of the Cardinals against Galileo and his abjuration (pp. 488-494), first printed in Riccioli's "Almagestum," in 1651. Period full vellum over boards, titled in manuscript to spine, edges speckled black, plain period end papers. A handsome, unsophisticated copy, rare in this condition.

Dibner 8 and 141. Norman 858. Very Good First Leiden Edition of the Dialogo (Fourth Latin Edition, Fifth Edition overall), bound with the First Latin Edition (third overall) of the Two New Sciences. Galileo's discoveries with the telescope (described in Sidereus nuncius, in 1610), confirmed his belief that the Sun is the center of the solar system and Earth a planet, as Copernicus had argued. But by 1616, the Inquisition had pronounced Copernican theory heretical, and Galileo was admonished not to "hold or defend" it. Then in 1624, Maffeo Cardinal Barberini, friend, admirer, and patron of Galileo for a decade, was named Pope Urban VIII, and granted Galileo permission to write a book about theories of the universe but warned him to treat the Copernican theory only hypothetically. That book, the Dialogo (Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems, Ptolemaic & Copernican), was first published, in Italian, in 1632. In it, Galileo gathered together all the arguments (mostly based on his own telescopic discoveries) for the Copernican theory and against the traditional geocentric cosmology put forth by Ptolemy and Aristotle. (The Dialogo takes the form of a discussion between a spokesman for Copernicus, one for Ptolemy and Aristotle, and an educated layman for whose support the other two vie.) Reaction against the book was swift. The pope convened a special commission, which recommended that the Inquisition bring a case against Galileo. Galileo confessed to having overstated his case and was condemned to life imprisonment, though he never spent a day in a dungeon; the Dialogo remained on the Inquisition's Index of prohibited books until 1822. The two new sciences with which the second book deals are mechanics and motion (kinematics). Together, they underlie modern physics, and the Two Sciences is considered the "first modern textbook in physics" (Dibner), "not only because it contains the elements of the mathematical treatment of motion, but also because most of the problems that came rather quickly to be seen as problems amenable to physical experiment and mathematical analysis were gathered together with suggestive discussions of their possible solution." (Dictionary of Scientific Biography) Newton claimed he derived the first two laws of motion from this book. N. B.

      London: T. Sowle, 1699. [14],254pp. Antique-style half calf and marbled boards. Light foxing and soiling. Very good. The third edition of this work by William Penn, with no copies of the first edition being recorded extant, and the second published in 1674. In this work the noted Quaker and founder of Pennsylvania refutes assertions about the Quaker faith made by Baptist preacher Thomas Hicks in his pamphlet, A DIALOGUE BETWEEN A CHRISTIAN AND A QUAKER (1673). Hicks' pamphlet purports to be a conversation between an orthodox Christian and a Quaker, in which the Quaker is made to appear quite foolish. Bronner & Fraser note that it must have been quite popular, as it went through two printings, and Penn felt compelled to respond with the present work. Penn's essay concerns "the Light within," which he claims is universal, dating back to the classical world even before Christ, though he notes that Christ is the ultimate expression of the Light. "WP went on to prove the universality of the Light through reason, and to summarize the character of a True Quaker, as one who is completely obedient to the Light. Biographers have called this WP's most systematic essay written up to this point, and it was given a good reception in the seventeenth century" - Bronner & Fraser. ESTC R26864. WING P1267.

        Once I was Alive and had Flesh Did Thrive But Now I am a Skellitan at 70. TBK.

      n.p. [c.1699] - Illustrated folio broadside, woodcut portrait in oval border beneath title and above 16 lines of verse; a few creases & a little dusted, but a very nice copy. 39 x 24.5cm. ESTC R218862, BL only in UK; Huntington, Folger & Yale only in North America. ESTC attributes the opening verse to Thomas Barkworth (?identified by Cty?). However, Anthony A. Wood notes that this cypher (?Once I was alive .?) belonged to Thomas Baskerville, known as the ?King of Jerusalem? (Athenæ Oxonienses, 1848, pp 86-7.) He refers directly to this print, which he surmises was published in 1699: ?The portrait of Baskerville is supposed by Noble to have been engraved by Vertue, but by the execution this is hardly probable. He is represented in an oval, with a slouch-hat, over a large flowing wig, a neck-kerchief hanging long and loosely, and having his hands clasped together, a singular and miserable looking personage? Wood quotes a passage from the diaries of Thomas Hearne, the antiquary and keeper of books at the Bodleian Library, explaining the history of the portrait: ?Baskerville ?was so whimsical a man as to call himself by the said title of the King of Jerusalem, and would ramble about all the country and pick up all strange odd things, good and bad, which he had written fair in two large folios, which he design?d to have printed, and for that end had his picture engrav?d which was to have been prefix?d as a frontispiece? Baskerville died before the work could be published and one of the volumes found its way into the Harleian Collection. Thomas Baskerville, 1629-1705, is described in Chronicles of the Reigns of Edward I and Edward II, 1883, as an ?eccentric squire of Bayworth? a village in the parish of Sunningwell of which he was the Lord of the Manor. Baskerville?s father had studied at Oxford, a few miles from Sunningwell, and although Thomas did not follow in his footsteps, he wrote an account of the town describing Oxford in the period after the Restoration (Evans, The University of Oxford: a new history). Baskverville ?was a collector of manuscripts and in the year 1678 had books and manuscripts which were in Hearne?s opinion of very good value and great curiosity? Indeed, Hearne had wanted to acquire Baskerville?s books after his death but failed to do so. DNB erroneously notes that he died on February 9, 1720, this in fact, the date of his son?s death. In James Caulfield?s Portraits, Memoirs, and Characters of Remarkable Persons . Baskerville?s death is recorded as being ?about the year 1705? The 1819 edition of this work includes an engraving by George Cruikshank of the portrait illustrated here together with a brief biography of John Baskerville. ?He was well known to the Oxford Students, who, from his dry, droll, and formal appearance, gave him the nickname of the King of Jerusalem, he being of a religious turn, and constantly speaking of that heavenly city; a pretention to inherit which, he founded on what he styled his regeneration or second birth, in the year 1666, as may be gathered from his own poetic lines, inserted under his portrait?: ?As shadows fly, So hours dye And dayes do span the age of man In month of AUGUST twenty nine I first bean my mourning time Thousand Six hundred ninety nine I number yeares then sixty nine Yet I drudge on as said before, Ther's Time, ichen Time shall be no more. A second Birth I had I say January Eleventh day In that circle Fifty-two Weeks Thousand Six hundred Sixty-six A ray of Light I saw that day Enter my heart with heat and joy Saying these words unto me then King of Jerusalem?.

      O. O., Joachim Schmedtgen, 1699. Deutsche Fassung des von König Christian V (1646 - 1699) erlassenen Dänischen Gesetzbuchs (Danske Lov) von 1683, das die bis dahin geltenden regionalen Rechtsordnungen (Jütisches Recht, Schonisches Recht und Seeländisches Recht) ersetzte und erstmals ein einheitliches dänisches Recht konstituierte. Die Verabschiedung des Gesetzes spiegelte die Einführung des Absolutismus in Dänemark im Jahre 1660 wider. Als rechtliche Grundlagre der absoluten Herrschaft wurde zunächst 1665 die Lex Regia, das Königsgesetz, erlassen. Das Königsgesetz wurde erst 1709 veröffentlicht, das Dänische Gesetzbuch von 1683 nahm aber in seinem ersten Buch bereits Teile davon vorweg. "Das Dänische Gesetzbuch war ein Ergebnis der politischen Umwälzungen, die dem König eine zentrale Stellung einräumten und nach Rechtseinheit strebten." Für Norwegen wurde 1687 ein analoges Gesetz erlassen (vgl.: Ditlev Tamm,Werner Schubert,Jens Ulf Jrgensen [Hrsg.]: Quellen zur dänischen Rechts- und Verfassungsgeschichte (12 .- 20. Jahrhundert), Frankfurt am Main, Peter Lang, 2008, S. 20). Unteres Kapital mit kleiner Fehlstellen Titelblatt mit fachmännisch ausgeführter Eckreparatur ein Blatt mit kleinem Randausriß (ohne Textverlust).

        Le Royaume D'Irlande - Divisé en Ses Grandes Provinces.

      [Sanson], [Paris] 1699 - Original Engraving. [Paris], [Sanson], [1699]. The engraving itself is 21 cm wide x 26.5 cm high. Mounted: 31 cm wide x 37 cm high. Original Map. With three folds (probably from a book). This very rare, unusual and early map of Ireland was unfortunately drymounted on cardboard. The engraving itself in excellent condition but with some dark impressions at two of the former folds. The handcoloured Cartouche beautiful. An attractive, small map of Ireland with the provinces of Ulster, Munster, Leinster and Connaught noted, but no county divisions shown. The major towns, topography and forests are all shown in a pictorial manner. The smaller Cartouche shows the scale in "Duitsche Mylen" / "Fransche Mylen" / "Engelische Mylen" / "Yrische Mylen". The spelling of the scale - cartouche hints to a Flemish (Belgian Dutch) version of this early Irish Map. A sticker of a framer from Brussels on the rear cardboard supports this. Nicolas Sanson (1600–1667) was a French cartographer, termed by some the creator of French geography, in which he's been called the "father of French cartography." He was born of an old Picardy family of Scottish descent, at Abbeville, on 20 (or 31) December 1600, and was educated by the Jesuits at Amiens. In 1627 he attracted the attention of Richelieu by a map of Gaul which he had constructed (or at least begun) while only eighteen. Sanson was royal geographer. He gave lessons in geography both to Louis XIII and to Louis XIV; and when Louis XIII, it is said, came to Abbeville, he preferred to be the guest of Sanson (then employed on the fortifications), instead of occupying the lodgings provided by the town. At the conclusion of this visit the king made Sanson a councillor of state. Active from 1627, Sanson issued his first map of importance, the "Postes de France", which was published by Melchior Tavernier in 1632. After publishing several general atlases himself he became the associate of Pierre Mariette, a publisher of prints. In 1647 Sanson accused the Jesuit Philippe Labbe of plagiarizing him in his Pharus Galliae Antiquae; in 1648 he lost his eldest son Nicolas, killed during the Fronde. Among the friends of his later years was the great Condé. He died in Paris on 7 July 1667. Two younger sons, Adrien (d. 1708) and Guillaume (d. 1703), succeeded him as geographers to the king. In 1692 Hubert Jaillot collected Sanson's maps in an Atlas nouveau. See also the 18th century editions of some of Sanson's works on Delamarche under the titles of Atlas de géographie ancienne and Atlas britannique; and the Catalogue des cartes et livres de géographie de Sanson (1702).
