        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.

        A Journey to Paris in the Year 1698

      London: Jacob Tonson, 1699. Early Reprint. Full Calf. Near Fine. 8vo: [6],248pp, with 6 plates (3 folding) but without the 3pp. of advertisements bound in some copies. 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. 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.

Note that this is a heavy and oversized book, so additional postage will be required for international or priority orders. ~SP29~ Three volumes of English theologian, classical scholar and linguist William Wotton's translation of Louis Dupin's A New History of Ecclesiastical Writers (Histoire des Controverses & Des Matieres Ecclesiastiques), produced in 13 volumes from 1692-99. These three volumes cover the 13th, 14th and 15th centuries, and include after the main text for each volume a chronological table for each century showing popes, eastern emperors, western emperors and kings, religious events, councils and ecclesiastical writers. Though Dupin (1657-1719) was far ahead of his time in producing this history, he was young and worked quickly, so that errors crept into his works, giving fuel to his critics. The Nouvelle Bibliotheque was placed on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum in 1757, long after Dupin's death. Full title: A new ecclesiastical history; containing an account of the controversies in religion: the lives and writings of ecclesiastical authors; an abridgment of their works, and a judgment on their style and doctrine: also a compendious history of the councils, and all affairs transacted in the Church. Written in French by Lewis Ellies du Pin, Doctor of the Sorbon. Volume the eleventh, containing the history of the thirteenth century; Volume the twelfth, containing the history of the fourteenth century; Volume the thirteenth, containing the history of the fifteenth century.

        [Four young ladies in fancy gowns].[Augsburg, ca. 1725?]. Four drawings in brown ink, watercolour and coloured gouaches on vellum, highlighted with gold (each 5.9 x 9.0 cm). Each mounted in a later passe-partout with a gold border, in an ebonized wooden frame (23.5 x 20.5 cm).

      Cf. Thieme & Becker XVI, pp. 208-209. A matching set of four lovely and delicate watercolour drawings, each depicting a young lady in a fancy German costume, drawn and painted on vellum by the Augsburg artist Catharina Sperling Heckel (1699-1741). She learned painting and drawing from her father, the Augsburg goldsmith Michael Heckel, engraving from Johann Ulrich Kraus, and married the engraver Hieronymus Sperling (1695-1777) in 1725. It is not clear whether she made these drawings shortly before or shortly after her marriage. She is best known for her ca. 1728 miniature portrait of Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie), the young pretender to the English throne. She never recovered from the birth of her first child in 1741, dying within a few weeks. Each drawing shows a young German lady wearing a long gown and a cap or bonnet, but one also carries a hat. The four drawings differ in the style of the gowns and other elements.In very good condition. With a few small chips in the paint of the frame. Lovely watercolour costume drawings of four young German ladies, perhaps from a court wedding in the free Imperial city of Augsburg.

Note that this is a heavy and oversized book, so additional postage will be required for international or priority orders. ~SP29~ Three volumes of English theologian, classical scholar and linguist William Wotton's translation of Louis Dupin's A New History of Ecclesiastical Writers (Histoire des Controverses & Des Matieres Ecclesiastiques), produced in 13 volumes from 1692-99. These three volumes cover the 13th, 14th and 15th centuries, and include after the main text for each volume a chronological table for each century showing popes, eastern emperors, western emperors and kings, religious events, councils and ecclesiastical writers. Though Dupin (1657-1719) was far ahead of his time in producing this history, he was young and worked quickly, so that errors crept into his works, giving fuel to his critics. The Nouvelle Bibliotheque was placed on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum in 1757, long after Dupin's death. Full title: A new ecclesiastical history; containing an account of the controversies in religion: the lives and writings of ecclesiastical authors; an abridgment of their works, and a judgment on their style and doctrine: also a compendious history of the councils, and all affairs transacted in the Church. Written in French by Lewis Ellies du Pin, Doctor of the Sorbon. Volume the eleventh, containing the history of the thirteenth century; Volume the twelfth, containing the history of the fourteenth century; Volume the thirteenth, containing the history of the fifteenth century. .

      Tours : J. Barthe : H.M. Duval, 1699. 1st ed - 1699 1st ed Life of Saint Martin of Tours / Hungary Born Patron Saint of Soldiers Extremely Rare Bio / None Found for Sale Worldwide Martin of Tours (Latin: Sanctus Martinus Turonensis; 316 – November 8, 397) was a Bishop of Tours, whose shrine in France became a famous stopping-point for pilgrims on the road to Santiago de Compostela. Around his name much legendary material accrued, and he has become one of the most familiar and recognizable Christian saints. As he was born in what is now Szombathely, Hungary, spent much of his childhood in Pavia, Italy, and lived most of his adult life in France, he is considered a spiritual bridge across Europe. His life was recorded by a contemporary, the hagiographer Sulpicius Severus. Some of the accounts of his travels may have been interpolated into his vita to validate early sites of his cult. He is a patron saint of soldiers.

      London: Richard Sare, Francis Saunders and Thomas Bennet,, 1699. From the Peopling of it by Tubal, till the Death of King Ferdinand, who united the Crowns of Castile and Aragon. With a Continuation to the Death of King Philip III. Written in Spanish by the R.F.F. John de Mariana. To which are added, Two Supplements, the first by F. Ferdinand Camargo y Salcedo, the other by F. Basil Varen de Soto, bringing it down to the Present Reign. The Whole translated from the Spanish. By John Stevens. Folio (348 × 215 mm). Contemporary panelled calf, expertly rebacked with the original spine laid down, red morocco label, raised bands, compartments gilt with attractive scrolled corner-tools enclosing a large floral lozenge. From the collection of British Arabist and colonial officer Col. S. B. Miles (1838-1914), with his widow's bequest plate to Bath Public Library to the front pastedown, and associated inked shelf-mark and blind-stamps as usual, together with an early 20th-century bookseller's ticket (Meehan of Bath) and the pencilled inscription "This book belonged to Professor Mitford". A little rubbed, some neat restoration to extremities, contents browned, a good copy. First edition in English, and still the only complete edition, of "the standard work on Spanish history up to the 18th century … [which] does not merely report events in lucid chronological order and with admirable objectivity, but includes analyses of the mechanisms of princely power" (Braun, Juan de Mariana and Early Modern Spanish Political Thought, p. 2). First published in Latin at Toledo in 1592 as Historiae de rebus hispaniae, the text was updated by Mariana down to the death of Philip III in 1621. In 1601 Mariana first published his own Spanish translation of the work, from which this English translation was taken. The English work includes two supplements further extending the chronology of the narrative: one by H. Camargo y Salgado covering 1621–1649, and one by B. Varen de Soto covering 1650–1669. Juan de Mariana (1535?–1624), a native of Talavera de la Reina, became a Jesuit at Simancas, studied at the University of Alcalá and taught in Rome, Loreto, Sicily, Paris, and the Low Countries.

        Shinkyu bassui taisei [trans.: Complete Essentials of Acupuncture and Moxibustion]

      - Many woodcut illus. in text. 33; 19; 20; 29; 26; 14; 12 folding leaves. Seven vols. 8vo, orig. wrappers (rather rubbed, some marginal worming in Vol. V & minor worming in Vol. VII), orig. block printed title label on each upper cover, new stitching. Osaka: Okada Saburoemon kanko, 1699. First edition of this very rare book on acupuncture and moxibustion, the taking of the pulse, and traditional Chinese medicine. This was one of the three most important works of clinical medicine of the Edo period. The text clearly describes taking the pulse of patients, both of adults and children. The nine tools used at that time for acupuncture are described and illustrated (several of them are still in use today). The present work is an elaboration of the influential work on moxa and acupuncture "Shinkyui bassui, by an unknown author or editor, published complete in five volumes in 1685. This treatise refers to an earlier Chinese work, unnamed, but probably meaning the Rei-su (or Ling-shu), traditionally ascribed to the famous Chinese physician-emperor, KO-TEI (or HWANG Ti). The detail available in Shinkyu bassui, especially regarding descriptions and instructions for use, is impressive - no less than 22 sections consider the following aspects of moxa and acupuncture: theory; relationship to the pulse; stomach; other internal organs; treatment (which was differentiated by sex); the 'philosophy' of acupuncture; cautions in the use of acupuncture and moxa; the preparation and use of moxa cones; how to remove needles (including a separate section on needles which are broken off in the skin); how to twist the needle; how to hit the needle (with a mallet); how to use the needle with a tube; the use of needles (with a separate section on their use in the treatment of boils); on the names of spots (not the 'right spots') where - with extreme caution - acupuncture and moxa can be used (regarded as 'secret' spots, not for the use of beginners in the art); how to measure for location of sites to apply treatment; on needles in general; on names and lengths of bones; and, finally, on interrelations among nerves."-Mestler, A Galaxy of Old Japanese Medical Books?Part II. Acupuncture and Moxibustion?, p. 476. Okamoto (active 1685-1733), was a late-17th-century Japanese author who wrote a series of popular explanations of contemporary medical works and earlier medical classics. He came from a family of physicians. Very good set. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        A SOBER DIALOGUE BETWEEN A COUNTRY FRIEND, A LONDON FRIEND, ONE OF G.K.'S FRIENDS...[caption title]

      London: Printed for the author, 1699. 16pp. Dbd. Very good. A rare work by noted Quaker dissenter George Keith, shortly before he abandoned Quakerism for the Anglican faith. Keith was a devout Quaker from 1663, and was imprisoned for several times because of his faith. He came to America in 1685, working as a surveyor in New Jersey. Beginning in 1689, with printer William Bradford, he wrote a series of books attacking New England Congregational ministers. However, by 1692, Keith turned his ire on fellow Quakers, and wrote a number of pamphlets attacking them. In 1693, after a trial, Keith went to New York, where he and Bradford produced the first book printed there, TRUTH ADVANCED IN THE CORRECTION OF MANY GROSS AND HURTFUL ERRORS (New York, 1694). He then went back to England. In the late 1690s, Keith wrote a few pamphlets, increasingly attacking all Quakers, but especially those in America. This pamphlet is the last Keith made before he became an Anglican, and it continues his vein. In 1702 he abandoned Quakerism, and he returned to America, where he spent the next two years. This is one of the rarer of Keith's works, with three institutions in the United States having copies: Folger, Earlham College, and John Carter Brown. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 699/116. WING S4408.

        An essay on the probable methods of making a people gainers in the balance of trade. Treating of these heads, viz. Of the people of England. Of the land of England and its product. Of our payments to the publick, and in what manner the ballance of trade may be thereby affected. That a country cannot increase in wealth and power but by private men doing their duty to the publick, and but by a steady course of honesty and wisdom, in such as are trusted with the administration of affairs. By the author of the Essay on Ways and Means.

      London: Printed for James Knapton. 1699. 8vo, (16) + 312pp, 6 folding tables, with the very small ink stamp of the Nottingham Free Public Library on title-page (not touching printed surface, however), the stamp repeated discretely on blank versos of folding tables and on final leaf, recently bound by Trevor Lloyd in a fine 17th century style calf binding, spine gilt and lettered. A handsome copy. First edition. In this work Davenant endeavoured to correct what he regarded as the lamentable recklessness of his adversaries in the use of figures by extensive quotations from the estimates of Gregory King. It was through Davenant's Essay that these estimates (which were otherwise available only in mss.) became public and served as the basis for much 18th century statistical discussion. (J.F. Rees, Ency. of Social Sciences>). Davenant was one of the first students of the balance of trade in England. In this book concerned with the means to national prosperity he breaks away from the strict dogma of mercantilism by observing that the poor were unjustly oppressed by heavy customs and excise, which benefited only a limited commercial class. His remarks on the poor laws, the origin of the Whig and Tory parties, and on population (based partly on the works of William Petty) are of considerable interest.

        Constantinopolitan- oder T

      Leipzig, Friedrich Groschuff, 1699. - 12mo. (20), 168 pp., including a folding genealogy of Mohammed as *10, bound here before *2. With a woodcut vignette of the Blue Mosque (?) on title-page as well as an engraved frontispiece of Mohammed presenting the Qur'an to the world, along with Zulfiqar (his legendary double-bladed sword), and a dove on his shoulder. Bound with (II): Orientalischer Kirchen-Staat. Gotha, Jakob Mevius, 1699. (2), 155, (1) pp. (and 2 other works). Contemp. vellum. Very rare sole edition of this detailed exposition of the Qur'an for German readers, replete with a frontispiece depicting Mohammed giving the 'Alcoran' to the world as well as a folding genealogy of the Prophet. The preface discusses the threat which Islam poses to the West; and yet Pritius remarks that "meanwhile no-one will be hurt by learning a little more precisely about the opinions of these people, against whom Christendom has so long struggled" (*2v). - Chapter I covers the tenets of Islamic faith, rituals, customs, and pilgrimage. This includes numerous excerpts from the Qur'an and a lengthy discussion of the entire process of the Hajj, as well as the rituals the pilgrims take part in once they arrive in Mecca (pp. 89-113). Chapter II concerns the role of "muftis, priests, monks, and hermits" in Islam; and Chapter III recounts the life and death of Mohammed, taken from the usual European sources. - The inner workings of Islam had long fascinated the German Protestants, who saw an ally in their struggle against the common enemy of the Habsburgs / Roman Catholic Church.
