WAFER, Lionel (1640-1705)
London: James Knapton, 1699. 8vo., (7 4/8 x 4 4/8 inches). 2-page publisher's advertisement at the end. Fine folding engraved map of the Isthmus of Darien, and three folding plates (small tear on map not affecting image, some spotting). 19th-century half tan calf, gilt, with marbled end boards, five compartments with four raised bands, red morocco lettering piece in gilt "WAFER'S/VOYAGE", red-speckled edges (extremities rubbed). First edition. After a life of high adventure in the South Seas where he joined Buccaneers Sharpe and Dampier in their raids on the Spanish at Panama 1680 and 1681, Wafer escaped marriage to a local Cuna Indian woman and returned to England where he ". established himself as the foremost authority on the Darien isthmus. Dampier deferred to Wafer for descriptions of Darien, claiming he 'is better able to do it than any man that I know' (Dampier, 24). On 2 July 1697, following Dampier's recommendation, Wafer was interviewed by John Locke and the other commissioners of the council of trade and plantation concerning Darien and the projected Scots' colony. Wafer's knowledge of Darien was also sought by the directors of the Darien Company, and the advice he gave them almost certainly influenced the siting of the disastrous Scots' colony in 1698. Wafer was invited to visit the company's directors in Edinburgh in the spring of 1698. He travelled to Scotland as Mr Brown of London, and stayed with Andrew Fletcher of Saltoun where he met the directors before removing to a secret garret in Edinburgh. Having been engaged by the company, Wafer ordered his affairs … [Click Below for Full Description]

ALEXANDRE, Noel
appresso gli Heredi di C. d'Egmond, 1699. 2 opere in un volume in 8° piccolo (150 x 100), pp. (12) 644 (10, 1c.b.) 257 (3). Legatura piena pergamena dell'epoca. Buon esemplare. Traduzione in italiano contemporanea a quella originale in francese stampata a Bruxelles. Alexandre Noel (1639 - 1724) fu storico e teologo francese, domenicano, accanito avversario dei Gesuiti. Professore e rettore del Collegio di San Giacomo, poi provinciale a Parigi, insegnante alla Sorbona di Parigi, rimase nell'alveo del sistema tomista, pur indulgendo a un moderato gallicanesimo, di moda fra i teologi francesi del suo tempo. Criticò aspramente l'atteggiamento dei gesuiti nei confronti dei riti cinesi accusandoli di accettare alcuni aspetti della spiritualità cinese. Cfr. Melzi, I p. 74; Barbier, I/245; Cordier, Bibl. Sinica, 877.

Fernández de Medrano, Sebastián.
Brusselas: En casa de Lamberto Marchant, 1699. Small 8vo (15.5 cm; 6.125"). [8] ff., 66 [i.e., 196] pp., [2] ff. (index), 9 fold. plates. Fernández de Medrano (1646–1705) was the "director de la Academia Real y Militar de el Exercito de los Payses Bajos." The first edition of this work on bombs, muskets, grenades, fireworks, artillery, etc., appeared from the Foppens press in 1691; this second edition is revised and augmented. Its planned publication was interrupted by the "disturbing" news of Louis Hennepin's discoveries in the New World and Fernández de Medrano's decision to first publish an abridged Spanish-language edition of Hennepin's Nouveau Voyage. Our author's worry about foreign incursion into Spain's New World hegemony was then further exasperated, as he explains in his preface here, by news of the Scots attempt to establish a colony at Darien. For Fernández de Medrano these events made the need for an improved edition of this martial manual all the more obvious.    The text is printed in a utilitarian roman, with only one woodcut initial and no woodcut ornaments. The => nine folding plates were engraved by Jacobus Harrewijn, after designs by the author's students.    Searches of NUC and WorldCat locate only three U.S. libraries reporting ownership of this edition.         Philip, Bibliography of Firework Books, F050.1; Palau 89222, Peeters-Fontainas, Bibliographie des impressions espagnoles des pays-bas méridionaux, 449.

Nicolas Lémery
Laurent d? Houry 1699 Nicolas Lémery, né à Rouen le17 novembre 1645 et mort à Paris le 19 juin 1715, fut un pharmacien (apothicaire) et un chimiste français. Il enseigna pendant plus de vingt - cinq ans la chimie et la pharmacie à de nombreux étudiants qui venaient de tous les pays de l'Europe , il fut l'un des premiers auprès du grand public à démythifier la chimie et à la débarrasser des oripeaux de l'alchimie. Si son Cours de Chymie a fait autorité pendant un siècle, ses autres publications n'en ont pas moins connu au siècle des Lumières un réel succès populaire. On compte la Pharmacopée universelle (1697), , et l'ultime opus, le Traité de l'antimoine(1707) . Son Traité universel des drogues simples fut publié pour la première fois en 1698 et s' appellera ultérieurement un Dictionnaire universel des drogues. Deuxième Edition de 1699 par Laurent d' Houry, reliure plein cuir d' époque avec un dos lisse orné de caissons gravés à l' or fin, intérieur en bon état, format in 4, 841 pages.

Brauner Ganzlederband der Zeit auf fünf Bünden mit goldgeprägtem Rückentitel, sehr reichen floralen Goldprägungen und Kantenvergoldung; dreiseitiger Rotschnitt; mehrfarbig illustrierte Vorsätze. 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 Jørgensen [Hrsg.]: Quellen zur dänischen Rechts- und Verfassungsgeschichte (12 .- 20. Jahrhundert), Frankfurt am Main, Peter Lang, 2008, S. 20).

L'ouvrage est écrit sous forme de lettres, au nombre de quinze, du 30 février 1679 au 28 septembre 1680. Après l'Histoire d'Hippolyte, comte de Douglas (1690), la Relation du voyage en Espagne donne le coup d'envoi à la mode des contes de fées en publiant l'Histoire de Mira qui reprend le thème de Mélusine (tome I, p.140).

Treaty of Ryswick]
Haye, 1699. Three volumes. Two folding plates and several folding tables. 12mo. Modern half cloth and marbled boards, leather labels. Some interior staining, a few pages (including titlepages) chipped around edges. A good set. Exhaustive compilation of all of the state papers and preliminaries leading to the Treaty of Ryswick of 1697. The Treaty of Ryswick concluded the conflict known as King William's War, begun when William and Mary overthrew James II of England, who fled to France and persuaded Louis XIV to take his side. The war saw heavy fighting in Hudson's Bay and Canada, and frequent Indian incursions against settlers in New England. The West Indies were also a center of conflict, and several islands changed hands during the war. Because of the desire of the British to obtain peace, concessions were made here to allow the French to keep much of what they had seized in Hudson's Bay, laying the ground for further conflict and displeasing many British traders. Elsewhere, the status quo ante was reverted to, with much seized territory changing hands back to the pre-war kingdoms, and with no provisions made in the treaty to address the outstanding territorial grievances, which only led to later conflict. EUROPEAN AMERICANA notes a British edition published in 1698, and surmise that this French edition would have been published then as well, and they therefore list it under the year 1698, giving Jacques Bernard credit for editing the work. A scarce compilation, not in Sabin, LeClerc, or TPL. DAVENPORT 84. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 698/19. KOSSMANN 274.

[TASMAN] CORONELLI, Vincenzo Maria
Venice, 1699. A little foxing and toning, one blank margin irregular, very good condition overall.. Engraved gore sheet, 485 x 335 mm (sheet size); framed. 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.
