[DAVENANT, Charles]
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.

Keith, George
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.

BROADSIDE. (BASKERVILLE, Thomas)
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 foun … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

[TASMAN] CORONELLI, Vincenzo Maria.
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.

BEGON
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."

PETTY, William.
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.

Penn, William
T. Sowle, London, 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.

BROADSIDE. (BASKERVILLE, Thomas)
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

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). Sonst sehr gutes Exemplar Seiten bemerkenswert frisch und nahezu fleckenfrei. Weitere Fotos auf der Homepage des Antiquariats (bitte Art.-Nr. auf der Angebotsseite in das Suchfeld eingeben).
