        A New Map of North America shewing its principal divisions, chief cities, townes, rivers, mountains, &c. Dedicated to his Highness William Duke of Glocester

      London: [circa 1700]. Copper-engraved map. 17 x 22 3/4 inches. First state of a noted English map of North America, with a large depiction of California as an island. The map is dedicated to His Highness William Duke of Gloucester, with his coat of arms in the title cartouche. It was drawn and engraved by Michael Burghers, the official engraver of the University of Oxford, and appeared in editions of Wells atlas, titled A New Sett of Maps both Ancient and Present Geography. The general outline of North America generally follows Hennepin's depictions, with the discoveries in the Mississippi valley attributed to him on the map, but with other sources as well. English settlements are located along the eastern seaboard and a new French settlement is identified near the mouth of the Mississippi (i.e. d'Iberville's colony at Biloxi founded in 1699). In the interior, the Ohio River (named Hotico R.) is shown flowing through a mountain range, named the Apalachin M., but which run east-west in an arc that encloses the Spanish possessions of Florida. The Great Lakes are shown rather distorted, a large mythical lake still appears in Carolina and, as expected, the northwest coast is largely unmapped. Burden identifies four states of the map, printed between 1700 (though with some evidence to suggest that the first state was completed in 1699) and circa 1743; the present example is the first state, without a plate number below the cartouche, with the Great Lakes unnamed and prior to the addition of Georgia.

        Pascaarte vande Guinea en Brasilia, van Cabo de Verde? van R. de Amazaones hot Rio de la Plata

      Rare sea chart of Brazil and the African Coast. c.1700. Amsterdam. Fine colour, some spotting and minor foxing, generally in excellent condition with unusual wide margins. An important sea chart of the coasts of Brazil and Africa; embellished with a large cartouche, ships sailing and a compass rose. This chart shows the entire Brazilian coastline, with profuse detail of the towns and cities inhabiting the shores (often imaginary). Van Keulen (1654 ? 1715) was an influential Dutch 17th century cartographer and mapmaker, his atlases, the Zee Atlas and Zee-Fakkel, intended as aid for navigators, are amongst the best cartographic productions of the end of the 17th century. He began his activities as printer in 1678 in Amsterdam; shortly thereafter he obtained his license for printing, employing Jan Luyken and Claes Vooght (famed mathematician) amongst others. Although not the rarest, his most monumental production was the De Nieuwe Groote Lichtende Zee-Fakkel, where these maps were included; the Zee-Fakkel was published in several editions, its contents spanned the whole world. Remarkably, the part dedicated to Brazil was particularly rich, which probably accounts for the Dutch interest in the region. The family and successors of Johannes continued the business well into the 18th century.

        [ALBUM OF 22 ORIGINAL WATERCOLORS, ON SILK, OF BIRDS AND LEPIDOPTERA]

      [Japan. ca. 1810s-20s].. Folio (33 x 27.5 cm). Late 19th or early 20th century marbled calf, raised bands, spine gilt extra, gilt label, a.e.g., with watercolor river scenes on paper onlaid as doublures. Binding extremities rubbed, images offset a bit to interleaves, occasional patches of darkening to backgrounds of a few images, one corner of an interleaf creased and a bit torn, but otherwise very good to near fine. A lovely collection of watercolor images on silk of birds, moths and butterflies, the artist unknown, but the paintings executed with great skill. The twenty-two individual panels vary somewhat in size, but approximate 24 x 20 cm to 20 x 16cm, and each includes several specimens: in the case of the birds, 2-4, in the case of the Lepidoptera, 5-10. The individual panels are mounted to heavy stock via blue silk bordering. The birds are identified via manuscript captions next to each bird; the Lepidoptera are not captioned. A pencil note on the free endsheet in an early hand dates the paintings somewhat earlier (1700- 1750 Shijo School) than do those later in its most recent provenance: tipped in unidentified mid-20th century auction description (dating the paintings to early 19th century) - private collection.

        ESSAY CONCERNING HUMANE UNDERSTANDING In Four Books

      London: for Awnsham and John Churchil, 1700. The fourth edition, with a large number of additions. With the engraved portrait frontispiece of John Locke. Folio, full contemporary paneled calf, expertly rebacked to correct period style with tall raised bands double-ruled in gilt and a brown morocco label gilt ruled and lettered. [39], 438, [index, errata] pp. A very handsome copy, crisp and in fine order inside and out, pastedown and free-fly renewed with proper handmade paper, the binding very attractive, sturdy and sound. A VERY EARLY PRINTING WITH THE PORTRAIT, AND A VERY HANDSOME COPY OF LOCKE’S GREAT ESSAY, the "first attempt on a great scale, and in the Baconian spirit, to estimate critically the certainty and the adequacy of human knowledge, when confronted with God and the universe" (EB). This was the last edition to be published in Locke’s lifetime. The fourth edition contains all of the additions of the previous three editions, including the portrait and the index. The principal additions include an epistle to the reader on Locke’s terminology and there are two wholly new chapters. The first on the association of ideas (book II, chapter XXXII) and the second being on enthusiasm (book IV, Chapter XIX). There are also numerous minor additions and corrections. Locke's ESSAY served as the most concrete manifestation of a new empiricist spirit, in contrast to the metaphysical philosophies of Descartes, Spinoza and Leibniz. Locke was inspired to write the ESSAY in 1671 after a philosophical discussion with friends in which he realized that no progress could be made before they had examined the mind's capacities and seen "what objects our understandings were, or were not, fitted to deal with" (from the "Epistle to the Reader"). "Other philosophers had reflected on and written about human knowledge... But Locke was the first philosopher to devote his main work to an inquiry into human understanding, its scope and its limits. And we can say that the prominent place occupied in modern philosophy by the theory of knowledge is in large measure due to him..." (Copleston, A HISTORY OF PHILOSOPHY). Locke's influence was widespread and was not strictly limited to pure philosophical inquiry. In America his emphasis on rational thought versus "enthusiasm" provided ammunition and philosophical grounding to opponents of the revivalist and itinerant preachers of the Great Awakening, and in the nineteenth century the "nature versus nurture" thesis was employed by Unitarians and other anti-Calvinist factions to argue that human nature was improvable through nurture and self-culture rather than corrupt beyond hope without conversion through a special act of divine grace. In England Locke had a strong influence on the literature of the Augustan Age, Sterne, Addison, and the members of the Scriblerus Club all acknowledging the currency of his ideas. "The art of education, political thought, theology and philosophy, especially in Britain, France, and America, long bore the stamp of the ESSAY, or of reaction against it" (Fraser, quoted in Grolier). Locke's ESSAY has passed through more editions than any classic in modern philosophical literature and remains a cornerstone in the history of human thought.

        [Istanbul] Constantinopolis

      Amsterdam: circa 1700. Copper engraving, printed on laid paper, in excellent condition. 20 7/8 x 24 ¾ inches. A stunning panoramic view of Constantinople, by the celebrated Dutch cartographer Frederick de Wit. Flourishing around 1650, Frederick de Wit was one of the most successful map engravers in Amsterdam. Following the decline of the Blaeu and Jansson publishing houses, de Wit cornered the cartographic publishing market by acquiring a vast array of used copper plates. His prolific business encompassed almost every aspect of map making from sea charts and atlases to town books and town plans; he even produced large wall maps. His work, which is finely engraved and superbly executed, was extremely popular and continued to be published even after his death. This impressive engraving is a striking town view of Constantinople in Turkey, and would have been originally published as part of a larger work.

      Amsterdam: Pierre Mortier, [circa 1700]. Copper engraved map, engraved by Romein de Hooghe, on two sheets joined, period hand-colouring in outline. Inset plan of Boston Harbor. 25 1/4 x 37 inches. Mortier's map of English America from his famed Neptune François. Although the title suggests this map of English North America to be based on Sanson, it is in fact "drawn directly from Robert Morden's significant New Map of the English Empire in America, c. 1698. The most notable feature here is the mountain range extending from the Florida peninsula northwards into Michigan ... Despite many of the toponyms being translated into French, the map's English origins are clearly seen, including Copper Mine near present day Chicago, and Mines of Iron besides the Ohio River, both originating in the Thevenot, 1681. The unusual depiction of Green Bay, the broader northern portion of the Delaware peninsula, the boundaries of Pennsylvania extending far to the north, the altered Cape Cod and the inset plan of Boston harbour are all features found on the Morden map. Indeed, this is the first printing of a plan of an English colonial city in a non-English map" (Burden). The general title and imprint appears in the upper left corner of this two sheet map; however, a second title (Partie Orientale de l'Amerique Angloise) and imprint appears in the upper right corner, allowing Mortier to use the same map joined, as here, in his Neptune François, or as separate sheets in his Atlas Nouveau.

        Carte des Costes de L'Afrique ou est compris une Partie de Guinée, Le Royaume de Benin, Isle de St. Thomas &c. Levée Par Ordre Expres des Roys de Portugal, sous quion en a Fiat Decouverte

      Amsterdam: Pierre Mortier, [1700]. Copper-engraved map, with full original colour and gold embellishments, in very good condition. 24 1/2 x 37 3/4 inches. A superb coastal chart of western Africa, with exquisite original colour and gold highlights This large scale, beautifully coloured chart, which shows the west coast of Africa from the southern border of Morocco to the southern border of Gabon, comes from the third part of Mortier's edition of Le Neptune François, or Suite du Neptune François, a lavish collection of charts derived from manuscripts in the Royal Portuguese archives. The Portuguese had of course been the first Europeans to explore the coasts of Africa. The map includes two handsome vignettes of the historically important islands that lie somewhat outside the purview of this chart: Ascension Island and St. Helena. Pierre Mortier's grandparents were French émigrés, who left France in about 1625 to live in Leiden. His parents settled in Amsterdam in 1661 or 1662. Mortier grew up in Amsterdam but lived in Paris from 1681 to about 1685 where he must have gotten into the book trade. Once he was in Amsterdam again he specialized in French books and maintained his relationships with Parisian publishers. Amsterdam was at this time the international marketplace for books, especially books forbidden by repressive governments. He established himself in the field of cartographical publishing by offering editions of French maps, primarily Sanson's and Jaillot's to a public tired of the superb but dated Dutch offerings. Working on a scale larger than the typical Dutch folio map and providing the new insights of French geography, he was immensely successful. The charts in his version of Le Neptune François are outstanding examples of cartographical art. They are among the most beautiful printed sea charts ever made. Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici, M.

Quibus accedit appendix De centro gravitatis quorundam solidorum

      Lugduni Batavorum [Leiden]: Apud Fredericum Haaring, et Davidem Severinum Bibliopolas [through 1700], 1699. Vellum. Very Good. 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. Vellum soiled and stained, scattered minor foxing, some thumbing to final few leaves, but a tight, clean example. PMM 128 (Dialogo first edition) & 130 (Discorsi). Carli and Favaro 395. Dibner 8 and 141. Norman 858. & 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 universe 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.

        Ethiopian Coptic (Ge'ez) Illustrated Manuscript Codex on Vellum

      [Ethiopia]: n.p., [18th-early 20th century] . Sewn Binding. Very Good. 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches. Written in Ge'ez in red and black ink. Five full page hand painted illustrations depicting the Madonna and Child (Mary and Jesus), St. George and the Dragon, the Crucifixion, and two depictions of the risen Christ, followed by 44 vellum leaves bound in five gatherings of eight leaves and a final gathering of four leaves. The last two leaves are blank, allowing the owner to make additions as desired. Varying signs of age (such as light staining an fading) to the vellum text pages as is normal. Bound in bare wooden boards in the distinctive Coptic style with exposed spine. A very good Coptic codex written in the Ethiopic (Ge'ez) script, a Semitic language that is no longer spoken, but which is still used for liturgical and other religious purposes by the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. The subjects of these codices are generally always Christian, but the actual content varies. Dating Ethiopian manuscripts is difficult. The text is believed to date from as early as 1700 to as late as 1850, with the covers, stitching, and hand paintings added later, likely during the first part of the 20th Century. The majority of the text consists of incantations to protect the owner from supernatural forces.

THE GREAT ILLUSTRATED BIBLE OF PIETER MORTIER, "Grande Bible de Mortier", IN THE RARE AND PREFERRED THREE VOLUME FORMAT AND THE ORIGINAL BINDING, THUS A VERY TALL COPY, UNTRIMMED AND WITH LARGE MARGINS. Not a full Bible in the usual sense, Mortier presents the books of the Bible through his illustrations, each accompanied by a short telling of the story in standard prose. The fine, large engravings were produced by or from the works of several masters. Many were later reproduced and used again in later and lesser bibles, in most case significantly reduced. The artists include Jan Luyken, Jan Goeree, Bernard Picard and others. While the text is in Dutch, the captions for the engravings are given in both Dutch and French. Complete copies are scarce, complete copies untrimmed and in full contemporary state are rare.

The first trilingual edition, adding Greek, was in 1645, but we have located no copies of this later edition in COPAC or Worldcat, and only a handful of copies of earlier editions outside France, including a 1696 in Illinois (Loyola), and editions of 1679 and 1680 in Canada.

        A Familiar Discourse or Dialogue Concerning the Mine-Adventure

      Title within ruled border. 8 p.l., 160, 15 pp. 8vo, cont. speckled calf (very carefully rebacked with the orig. spine laid-down, one corner a bit worn, faint dampstaining towards end), spine gilt. London: "Printed in the Year 1700." First edition and a lovely copy of a scarce book. "Published to encourage public investment in Sir Carbery Price's silver, copper, and lead mines and smelting works in Wales, which Sir Humphrey Mackworth (1657-1727) bought when Price died (1695). Considered so rich and abundant in high-grade ores, these mines were called the 'Welsh Potosi' after the silver mines in Bolivia. Mackworth formed the Corporation of the Governor and Company of the Mine Adventurers of England. Written in the form of a dialogue between 'Two Noble Lords, a Learned Doctor of Divinity, and an Eminent Merchant of London,' this work makes a very good case for investing substantial sums of money in these unusually productive mines. Thomas Savery's (1650?-1715) engine for pumping mine water by means of steam power (1698) is described (p. 50) as 'a very ingenious Invention.' In addition to its metallurgical and mineralogical interest, there are discussions of ore smelting, chemical analyses, etc."-Neville, II, p. 469. Fine copy. Book label of Chillingham Castle of the Earls Grey. ❧ See Hoover 744 for the second edition of 1709. .

Stoddard was one of the liberal Boston ministers who wished to dispute the conservative principles put forth by Increase Mather in his important work, THE ORDER OF THE GOSPEL... (Boston, 1700). Like Benjamin Colman and Thomas Brattle, who had their reply printed in New York, Stoddard found that the Mathers' friendship and influence with the Boston printers of the time prevented him from getting into print there, so he took his publication to London.

        Carte Particuliere des Costes de L'Afrique Qui comprend le Royaume de Maroc &c. Levée Par Ordre Expres des Roys de Portugal sous qui on en a Fait Decouverte

      Amsterdam: Pierre Mortier, [1700]. Copper-engraved map, with full original colour and gold embellishments, in excellent condition. 24 1/2 x 37 3/4 inches. A highly decorative sea chart of the coast of Morocco, with exceptional original colour and highlights in gold This large scale, beautifully coloured chart, which shows the northwest coast of Africa from Cape Spartel to a point in the Sahara adjacent to the Canary Islands, comes from the third part of Mortier's edition of Le Neptune François, or Suite du Neptune François, a lavish collection of charts derived from manuscripts in the Royal Portuguese archives. The Portuguese had of course been the first Europeans to explore the coasts of Africa. The coast from Gibraltar to the Canaries was well known during the Middle Ages, and had been known to the Romans. This chart is the most accurate and detailed of the African charts in the work, including as it does soundings and notes: historical and advisory. The place-names have changed radically of course. Pierre Mortier's grandparents were French émigrés, who left France in about 1625 to live in Leiden. His parents settled in Amsterdam in 1661 or 1662. Mortier grew up in Amsterdam but lived in Paris from 1681 to about 1685 where he must have gotten into the book trade. Once he was in Amsterdam again he specialized in French books and maintained his relationships with Parisian publishers. Amsterdam was at this time the international marketplace for books, especially books forbidden by repressive governments. He established himself in the field of cartographical publishing by offering editions of French maps, primarily Sanson's and Jaillot's to a public tired of the superb but dated Dutch offerings. Working on a scale larger than the typical Dutch folio map and providing the new insights of French geography, he was immensely successful. The charts in his version of Le Neptune François are outstanding examples of cartographical art. They are among the most beautiful printed sea charts ever made.

A fine copy of the first map of the Carolinas to be printed outside of England, including an inset of Charleston with the names and positions of early plantations along the Ashley and Cooper Rivers, present here in the first state This is the first map of the Carolinas to be printed outside of England, and was included as part of Pierre Mortier's Suite de Neptune François, published in Amsterdam in 1700, and often incorrectly attributed to Nicolas Sanson. It is directly derived from the extremely rare A New Map of Carolina of 1685 by John Thornton, Robert Morden and Philip Lea. All topographical details are identical to those of its antecedent, however most of the place names have been Gallicized. Also, The table of settlers has been omitted in favour of the title caption. Amusingly a "Charle Ville ou Charles Towne" appears written in large letters near Cape Fear, while the actual Charles Towne is labeled in small letters further down the coast. The present map includes an inset detail of Charleston and the Cooper and Ashley Rivers with the names and positions of various early plantations marked along their banks. "Carolina was established in 1663 when Charles II granted the province to eight favorites, known as the Lord Proprietors, who had helped him regain the throne of England. The original grant included the territory between the 31st degree to 36 1/2 degrees north latitude, from Jekyll Island, Georgia, to Curritiuck Inlet, North Carolina. Two years later, the tract was enlarged to include the land between the 29th and the 31st degrees north latitude, thus adding a large portion of Florida. The grant extended west to the Pacific Ocean" (Degrees of Latitude, p.93).

        Mappe-Monde Drésse sur les Observations de Mrs. de l'Academie Royal des Sciences et quelques autres sur les memoires les pus recens

      Paris: Chez l'Auteur Rue des Canettes pres de St. Sulpice, 1700. Copper- engraved map, hand-coloured in outline. Good condition, cut to just within the plate mark, with expert repairs to margins and central fold. Sheet size: 17 1/8 x 26 1/8 inches. The rare first state of the celebrated world map by De l'Isle"one of the foremost cartographer's of the age" (Shirley) This highly important map proved to be one of the most influential world maps of its time, and is present here in the rare first state. De L'Isle was a much esteemed figure who, after being tutored by the great Jean-Dominique Cassini, became the geographer to the French Academy of Sciences in 1702, and then 'Premier Géographe' to Louis XV in 1718. Rodney Shirley notes that "De L'Isle's work is distinguished by its scientific basis, the minute care taken in all departments, constant revision, and personal integrity". In this map of the world, De l'Isle was among the first cartographers to re-establish California's true form as a peninsula, to give more or less accurate configurations to all five Great Lakes, and to show the full extent of the Mississippi. He was also one of the first to correct the attenuated form of the Mediterranean Sea. In fusing New Guinea and Australia, he followed William Dampier's presumed personal survey, but resisted the temptation to join Tasmania and New Zealand to Australia, an error soon to be popular. Curiously, the tip of South America is shown to curve sharply into the Pacific, a detail conspicuously amended in subsequent states of the map. The map also features the tracks of important circumnavigators including Magellan, Mendaña, Dampier, Van Noort, Le Maire & Schouten and the antipodean tracks of Abel Tasman.

Bibliographers differ on the number of tables and plates required: Baillie, Clocks and Watches, Volume I, page 123 calls for 2 folding plates and 4 folding tables in this edition; Bromley, The Clockmaker's Library page 16, No. 257 calls for 3 folding plates and 2 folding tables. This famous work was first published in 1696 and this second edition was issued in the author's lifetime. William Derham (1657-1735) was an Essex Clergyman and Canon of Windsor. "The term 'artificial', as used here, refers to clocks made by human skill as opposed to sundials or time-tellers dependent on the heavens. The work is one of the first attempts to give practical help to a working clockmaker and also to record a history of horology. There were five editions, some of which were translated into French or German" (Bromley). MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING. POSTAGE AT COST.
