        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.

Containing their Rise, Progress, Decay, and Revival; With an Account of the most considerable Productions of the best Artists in all Ages: And how to distinguish the true and regular Performances, from those that are otherwise

      London: Printed for T. Bennet..., D. Midwinter, and T. Leigh..., and R. Knaplock..., 1699. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION. 8vo, 178 x 111 mms., pp. [xxx], 192 [193 - 204 index, 205 - 208 adverts], late 18th century calf, with gilt key border on each cover, spine richly gilt, black morocco label; title-page with evidence of early binding in grey papers at inner margin, some words on title-page slightly obscured, lacks frontispiece, joints slightly cracked (but firm), top and base of spine chipped. Pierre Monier (1639 - 1703) attempts here a history of art from the invention of painting to Raphael, but he also considers ancillary aesthetic adventures as well as technology. Histoire des arts qui on rapport au dessin was first published in 1698 and derived from public lectures that Monier gave at the Academie Royale. Monier is almost certainly best-known for the altar-piece painted for Notre Dame, which represents "le Parlament assemblee pur juger un proces pour le Marquis de Lockmarier."

        The Folly and unreasonableness of atheism demonstrated from the advantage and pleasure of a religious life…

      London: J.H. for H. Mortlock, 1699. Hardcover. Small 4to. “Fourth Edition.” pp. [4], 280. Complete. With frontispiece engraving of the Hon. Robert Boyle. An extra 19th century plate of the author Richard Bentley is also included after the dedication. Bound in modern half calf with marbled boards. Pages are generally clean; a faded name is written with small letters in an early hand on the title page (upper corner); minor chipping to outer edge of title. All edges gilt. Richard Bentley (1662-1742) English scholar and literary critic. He was made keeper of the Royal Libraries and was later appointed Master of Trinity College, Cambridge. In 1692 he was nominated first Boyle lecturer (named after scientist Robert Boyle). He then delivered a series of sermons trying to refute Thomas Hobbes and atheism. In particular, the lectures tried to show how the recent work in physics by Sir Isaac Newton offered proof of God’s existence. Bentley even corresponded with Newton on the subject. Originally the sermons were printed separately - several editions of each being issued. In 1693 the tracts were first collected together under the present title with separate paginations. The so-called “fourth edition” of 1699 is advertised as “corrected” and it displays continuous pagination. [ESTC R21357; Wing B1931].

(verso blanc), planche gravée en frontispice. Première édition collective de ce recueil de 17 pièces, dont 5 sont attribuées à La Fontaine par Lachèvre. Contient également le 'Voyage de Chapelle et Bachaumont', des pièces de Du Trousset de Valincour, Francheville, La Monnoye, Montreuil, Pavillon, Régnier-Desmarais, Saint-Gilles et Vergier Dans le catalogue Pixerécourt, Nodier note à propos de cet ouvrage (n°1639): "Ce petit recueil est très connu, et il mérite de l'être car il se distingue de toutes les collections du même genre. C'est l'album d'un honnête homme de beaucoup d'esprit, qui avait beaucoup de goût. Je suis porté à croire, sans en avoir aucune preuve, que ce volume, joliment imprimé, est sorti cependant d'une industrie particulière, ou tout du moins d'une imprimerie soumise au bon plaisir de l'éditeur, et qui me paraît être celle des Cavelier de Caen. La disposition en est tout à fait bizarre et se ressent plutôt d'un caprice d'un bibliophile que de la spéculation d'un libraire". Un ouvrage, sous le même titre, a été publié en 1667 ; il n'a de commun avec celui- ci que le ‘Voyage de Chapelle et Bachaumont’(cf Brunet , IV, 30 qui donne ce recueil comme "rare") (Lachèvre, Recueil collectifs, IV, 151-152. Brunet, IV, 1156. Walckenaer, 'La Fontaine', p. 563). Ex-libris à la devise "Ubertas ex foedere et pace" gravée sur cuivre par Picart et datée 1739. Très bon exemplaire, bien relié à l'époque.

He was a fashionable doctor and in 1709 was appointed Physician- in-Ordinary to Queen Anne at her accession, but his present fame is founded entirely on his hobbies pursued with creative enthusiasm throughout his life ... He was interested in archaeology and botany, and his published works cover the natural history of spiders, beetles, butterflies and moths, fishes and geology, but his most distinguished work deals with the classification of molluscs, so that he is accepted as founder in England of the science of conchology" (Keynes, Preface). Lister's Journey to Paris, was his most popular work published, with several editions printed in his lifetime, as well as later editions into the 20th century. The work is an account of a voyage to and six month stay in Paris while on a diplomatic embassy led by William Bentinck, Lord Portland. Rather than discuss the politics of the mission, or even the Parisian high society with whom he met in an official capacity, Lister here devotes this work to his experiences seeing the natural history collections, gardens and libraries of Parisian intellectuals, with his observations on science, art, natural history, food and wine, medicine and more. Four of the plates are devoted to specimens of American insects and shells seen in the collection of F. Plumier, including an 18-inch scolopendra and a purple murex. Keynes, Martin Lister 23

        Istoria della conquista del Messico, della popolazione, e de' progressi nell' America Settentrionale conosciuta sotto nome die Nuova Spagna

      xiv+624 pages with seven plates, including frontispiece. Royal octavo (9 1/4" x 6 1/2") bound in original velum with label in gilt lettering to spine. Translated from the Spanish by the Academy Crusca. Third edition in Italian.The first Italian edition published in 1699, first Spanish edition 1684.Antonio de Solís y Ribadeneyra (1610 - April 19, 1686), Spanish dramatist and historian, was born at Alcalá de Henares (less probably, Plasencia). He studied law at Salamanca, where he produced a comedy entitled Amor y obligación, which was acted in 1627. He became secretary to the count of Oropesa, and in 1654 he was appointed secretary of state as well as private secretary to Philip IV. Later he obtained the lucrative post of chronicler of the Indies, and, on taking orders in 1671 severed his connexion with the stage. He died at Madrid on the 19th of April 1686. Of his ten extant plays, two have some place in the history of the drama. El Antor al use was adapted by Scarron and again by Thomas Corneille as L'Amour de la mode, while La Gitanilla de Madrid, itself founded on the novela of Cervantes, has been utilized directly or indirectly by P A Wolff, Victor Hugo and Longfellow. The titles of the remaining seven are Triunfos de amor y fortuna, Eurídice y Orfeo, El Alcetzar del secrete, Las Amazonas, El doctor Carlino, Un bobo hace ciento, and Amparar el enemigo. Amor y obligación survives in a manuscript at the Biblioteca Nacional. The Historia de la conquista de México, población y progresos de la América septentrional, conocida por el nombre de Nueva España, covering the three years between the appointment of Cortés to command the invading force and the fall of the city, deservedly ranks as a Spanish prose classic. It was published in 1684; an English translation by Townshend appeared in 1724.Condition:Some soling to velum, spine darkened, some chipping to label, some worming to frontispiece else a very good copy.

        Diccionario de Lengua Mandarina. Cuyo primer author fue el R.P. fr. Francisco Diaz Religioso Dominico anadido despues por los RR.PP. desta Mission de Sancto Domingo

      Fujian Province, 1699. Hardcover. Near Fine. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. Manuscript in Spanish and Chinese characters, on a mixture of European and Chinese paper. 199 numbered ff of dictionary entries. Black ink, Chinese characters written with a brush, Spanish with a stylus. Dictionary section with red block-printed columns and borders, ca. 20 entries to a page. 4to., [21.5 x 15 cm], bound in ornate Russia brown calf by Du Planil with gilt and blind-embossed trim on covers and spine, ca. 1800. Exceedingly rare, unpublished, and unique manuscript Chinese dictionary prepared by the Spanish Dominican missionary Antonio Diaz in the field, whether in Fujian province in China or Manila; the earliest acquirable dictionary of Chinese written by a European, and a fascinating and understudied document for the European understanding of one of the world's major languages as well as a vital, active instrument of Missionary Culture.The present MS incorporates and thus forms one of the earliest surviving witnesses of Francisco Diaz's celebrated dictionary, composed ca. 1640, but in addition contains numerous technical innovations of its own, of great interest for the European history of Chinese lexicography. As mastery of Chinese, a difficult language for westerners, was the essential pre-requisite for evangelization and the attempt to acculturate the Chinese to Western customs and beliefs, it would be difficult to imagine any printed book or manuscript more intimately linked with the grand project of the Western Missions, the Christianization of China. The turn of the 18th century saw tensions reach a high point between the Qing Emperor Kangxi and Christian missionaries of all denominations, over what became known as the 'Chinese Rites' controversy. Dominicans like the present Father Diaz eventually succeeded in pressuring the Holy See into prohibiting all remnants of Confucianism from the Chinese Christian ceremonies; incensed, the Emperor responded by exiling all missionaries from his lands, at which time the present dictionary probably also returned to Europe.

        Histoire des Avanturiers Flibustiers qui se sont signalez dans les Indes contenant ce qu´ils on fait de plus remarquable depuis vignt années

      Very rare French edition, finely printed, of what´s arguably the most influential account of pirates of the Caribbean. 1699. Paris. Jacques Lefebvre. Two volumes in 12mo (158 mm x 90 mm). Frontispiece + 8 ff. + 483 [484] + 1 ff.; 2 ff. + 537 + 5 ff. + 7 folding maps and views. Elegant 20th century calf in period-style, boards with single gilt fillet, raised bands and labels to spine, lettered in gilt, hinges starting, some rubbing, generally fine. Very good, edges gilt, paper mildly browned, but still a most desirable copy. Third French edition ?the first appeared in 1686. The translation was prepared by Frontigniéres, adding and revising it apparently against Exquemeling´s own manuscript; the first edition in all was published in Dutch in 1678 under the title De Americaensche Zee-Roovers. The success was immediate, translations followed and editions continued until the 18th century. Exquemeling (1645 ? 1707) was a French Huguenot, in 1666 made sale towards the Antilles, his ship was allegedly attacked by pirates and after reaching Tortuga he was apparently sold to a local who subsequently sold to a surgeon of some sort, he would teach him his office and eventually grant him his freedom against payment. At an uncertain date, Exquemelin became a privateer; as a pirate, he participated in the raid of Maracaibo in 1669 and that of Panama in 1670 under Morgan. His experiences and observations were concentrated in his memoires. The detail with which Exquemeling describes the lootings, plundering, life and adventures of these seamen is, and was unequaled for a long time. The illustration includes seven folding maps and views; representing maps of Cartagena & Maracaibo and a view of Veracruz and an allegorical frontispiece to first volume.

Rare, this edition not in OCLC; which lists just a Paris 1741 edition with this title; Querard 3, col. 345; See Henrey, volume 1, p. 186; see Bitting p. 48 (who lists a 1684 edition and indicates that the first edition was issued in 1650, but that it has never been seen). This book, under the title: "Le Jardinier Francois" was written by Bonnefons and published in Paris in 1651. It was popular enough that a 4th edition was issued in 1654. It was translated by John Evelyn in 1658, being his first published work on horticulture. Evelyn notes that this book was "the first and best of that kind that introduced the use of the olitorie (ie kitchen) garden to any purpose"[Henrey Vol. 1, p. 186]. Bitting: "The work is divided into three parts: the first treats of the soil; the second treats fruits and vegetables; the third is about the manner of conserving fruits in their natural state, dry, with salt and vinegar, sweet wine, cider, and honey, liquid with sugar, dry and pastes, conserves of flowers and massepains."

        Fables of Aesop

      London: for R. Sare, B. Took, M. Gillyflower, A. & J. Churchil, G. Sawbridge, and H. Hindmarsh,, 1699. And other Eminent Mythologists: with Morals and Reflections. The Third Edition, Corrected and Amended. Tall quarto (310 × 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.

      London: Printed for James Knapton, 1699.. [16],45,[1],1-16,33-100 (as usual),53,[3]pp. plus five folding charts and plans, and a small plate of coastal profiles. Modern tooled calf, gilt morocco label. Bookplate on front pastedown. Titlepage nearly detached. Ex- Mercantile Library of Philadelphia, with their very faint ink stamp on the titlepage and a few internal pages. World map with neat partial splits along two fold lines. Old light stains, trimmed a bit close at the top edge, touching a few page numbers. Still a very good copy. Although it is doubtful that Hacke was ever the buccaneer he claimed to be, as a chart maker in Wapping he certainly must have known many of the British pirates. Indeed, it was from Sharpe that he was supplied with the captured Spanish Waggoner atlas from which he made several manuscript copies for presentation to those who could influence the fate of Sharpe, the returned pirate. Of the four narratives contained in this work, two are piratical accounts. The first, Sharpe's own account, here printed for the first time, describes his freebooting cruise in the Pacific, including the attempted sack of New Panama in 1680. There are five other accounts of this cruise (i.e. Wafer, Ringrose, Dick, Dampier, and Cox). The second piratical memoir contained in the above is that of Roberts' account of his adventures with the Greek pirates, his subsequent escape, and his final participation with the Venetian fleet at the battle of Scio. The first of Hacke's two other subjects, Wood, made his visit to the Straits of Magellan in 1670. The second, Cowley, sailed from Virginia with Capt. Cooke and later joined Eaton's ship on an independent circumnavigation. At that time they sailed further south than any predecessor, and visited and named various of the Galapagos Islands. They also visited South Africa and there is a description of Cape Town. The maps are by Herman Moll, and the world map shows California as an island. The three unnumbered pages at the end are ads for other books printed by Knapton, including works by Dampier and Wafer, works on commerce and trade, and Latin classics. One of the classics of British buccaneering literature. HILL 741. SABIN 29473. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 699/96. NMM 4:239. WING H168.

        Venise

      Magnifica veduta a volo d?uccello della città basata sul medesimo lavoro di Vincenzo Maria Coronelli datato circa al 1693, del quale risulta una riduzione. La pianta fu realizzata per essere inserita nel raro libro di viaggio Voyages De Mr. Du Mont En France, En Italie, En Allemagne, à Malte, Et En Turchie. Molto decorativa la cornice ornamentale, anche questa ripresa dal Coronelli. Incisione in rame, consuete pieghe di carta perfettamente restaurate, nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. Rara. Bibliografia: Moretto, Piante e vedute prospettiche della città di Venezia dal 1479 al 1797, 118. Dimensioni 470x310. Schedel's monumental Liber Cronicarum was ?one of the most extraordinary works ever produced? The woodblock cutters were Michael Wolgemut, the well-known teacher of Albrecht Dürer, and his stepson Wilhelm Pleydenwurff. Wohlgemut was Albrecht Dürer's tutor between 1486-90 and recent scholarship has shown, Albrecht Dürer may also have collaborated, since some of the cuts bear a remarkably close resemblance to the Apocalypse illustrations. The printing was carried out under the supervision of the great scholar-printer Anton Koberger, whose printing were famous throughout Europe . Woodcut, in good condition. Parigi Paris
