        CARTE GENERAL DE LA CAROLINE. DRESSE SUR LES MEMOIRES LE PLUS NOUVEAUX PAR LE SIEUA [sic] S***

      Amsterdam: P. Mortier, [1700].. Copper-engraved map, with full original color. Sheet size: 23 3/4 x 19 1/2 inches. Very good. 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 map 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 favor 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). BURDEN, MAPPING OF NORTH AMERICA 767. CUMMING, THE SOUTHEAST IN EARLY MAPS 120.

        Novissima et Perfectissima Africae Descriptio

      Amsterdam, c. 1700. Map. Copper engraving, 50 x 58 cms, original hand-colour, closed split at foot of centrefold, blank verso. Danckerts’ map of Africa follows Frederick de Wit's model, and it is a typical late seventeenth-century European perception of the continent: good coastal detail together with a great deal of speculation about the interior, including the mythical twin lakes of Zaire and Zaflan, and the mythical Saharan branch of the Nile.

        An Abridgment of Mr. Locke's Essay concerning Humane Understanding. The Second Edition, Corrected and Enlarged

      London: Printed for A. And J. Churchil.. 1700 Second edition. Nineteenth-century blindstamped paneled calf, edges stained red. . Small octavo. Front hinge weak, but holding. A very good copy. "The abridgement was Wynne's own idea and is based on the 2nd and 3rd editions (textually the same). Locke is said to have approved an abridgement in principle. This is one of the very few books dedicated to Locke (curiously)....Rather than rephrasing, Wynne's abridgment was accomplished by making strategic deletions in each chapter, sometimes adding transitional phrases, and keeping to Locke's own words" (Yolton pp 155/6).

        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.

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.

        DELL'ISTORIA DI FERRARA SCRITTA DAL DOTTORE D. GIROLAMO BARUFFALDI FERRARESE LIBRI NOVE, NE' QUALI DIFFUSAMENTE SI NARRANO LE COSE AVVENUTE IN ESSA, DALL'ANNO M.DC.LV, FINO AL M.DCC [...].

      PER BERNARDINO POMATELLI 1700 Legatura coeva "alla rustica" in cartonnage color avorio con punte di pelle allumata alle cerniere e titolo manoscritto al dorso; al contropiatto anteriore, due ex-libris: Biblioteca Banzi e Rosita Levi Pisetzky . Bel frontespizio inciso su matrice di rame, con indicazione dell'artista: "Il Coriolano F(ecit)" - occhietto - frontespizio con fregio silografato - (24) - 556 pagine numerate. Al recto della carta successiva al frontespizio, in testa, arma civica di Ferrara sostenuta da angeli. Capilettera ornati a racemi e fregi tipografici silografati. Il volume è la prima edizione di un'importante opera sulla storia di Ferrara, composta da un noto erudito e letterato del luogo. Fra gli altri scritti di G. Baruffaldi senior sono oggi ricordate, in particolare, la Dissertatio de poetis Ferrariensibus (1698), Il Canapajo, le Vite de' pittori e scultori ferraresi, nonché versi giocosi, didascalici e ditirambi quali la Tabaccheide. Una certa solennità è conferita al volume dall'elenco dei "Signori Savi del Magistrato di Ferrara" posto in apertura. Di Baruffaldi è invece la prefazione del volume, nella quale l'autore discorre sulle caratteristiche della propria opera, precisando che essa va intesa come la continuazione delle storie di Ferrara precedentemente scritte da due altri eruditi: Gasparo Sardi e Agostino Faustini. Nei nove libri in cui è articolato il volume, le notizie storiche sono riportate in ordinata sequenza cronologica. Esemplare in ottimo stato conservativo, in barbe e dagli ampi margini, genuino e dall'interno assai fresco. Cfr. LOZZI C., "Biblioteca istorica della antica e nuova Italia [...]", vol. I, p. 287 num. 1613 Libro

        Mappe - Monde, ou carte generale de la terre.

      Incisione in rame, mm 440x706, colorata d'epoca ai confini. Non comune ed elegante mappamondo inciso da H. Van Loon su due lastre stampate ravvicinate su di un foglio. Si tratta della riduzione della grande mappa murale dello stesso de Fer, pubblicata nel 1695 sotto gli auspici della Academie Royale des Sciences con criteri astronomici moderni. Numerosi sono comunque ancora gli errori geografici presenti: Australia e Nuova Guinea sono attacate, così come anche asia ed America; la California appare ancora come isola ed il Mississipi sfocia molto a sud est rispetto alla realtà. Negli angoli sono raffigurati vari fenomeni naturali ed atmosferici. In basso a destra vi è la nota editoriale "Chez l'autheur dans l'Isle du Palis sur le Quay de l'Orloge a la Sphere Royale" con data 1700; in alto al centro sotto al titolo c'è la dedica al Delfino di Francia ed una nota eitoriale con data 1705, segno di una evidente seconda tiratura. Buon esemplare con qualche strappetto restaurato (nel margine) rimarginata a sinistra ed in alto in modo speculare per circa 6 cm da entrambe le parti rispetto alla piega centrale, qualche traccia di umidità leggera. Shirley, 600, "Rare".

        L'Asia

      carta geografica del continente derivante da quella di Nicolas Sanson, edita a Parigi alla metà del XVII secolo. Editore, incisore e libraio, Paolo Petrini è attivo a Napoli tra il 1692 ed il 1748, realizzando numerose opere grafiche e topografiche, molto spesso derivandole da quelle di Sanson e Nicolas de Fer. La sua produzione è molto vasta e comprende centinaia di carte, molte delle quali ispirate al Mercurio Geografico della tipografia De Rossi di Roma. Tutta la sua opera è estremamente rara. E? molto probabile che il Petrini, piccolo editore locale con rari scambi all?estero, si ispiri alla carta dell?Asia del De Rossi che deriva dall?originale del Sanson. Incisione in rame, coloritura coeva con ritocchi, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Dimensioni 550x405. Paolo Petrini, publisher, engraver and book trader, worked in Naples between 1692 and 1748, realizing cartographic and topographic works, very often after Sanson?s and Nicolas de Fer?s prints. His huge production includes hundreds of maps, especially those inspired to the Mercurio Geografico, and is extremely rare. As a matter of fact, this map derives probably from the one realized by De Rossi, who I his turn took inspiration from Sanson. Copper engraving, contemporary colour with touches, in excellent condition. Napoli Naples 550 405

        America Aurea Pars Alter Mundi Auctoribus

      Amsterdam: [circa 1700]. Copper-engraved map, full period hand-colouring. 21 1/8 x 25 1/4 inches. Highly decorative map of North and South America showing California as an island and here with full period hand colouring. This decorative map by the Valk brothers is after a similar map by Carol Allard, first published circa 1696. Cartographically, both Allard and the Valks borrow heavily from the De Wit map of 1675, naming the Great Lakes, showing California as an island and with a Terra Esonis and Fretum Anian in the northwest. Interestingly, the Valks here re-issue the first state of Allard's map, i.e. before the re-engraving of the western Great Lakes and the Mississippi River (based on Hennepin's mapping). In addition, the lower left corner of the cartouche is left blank, whereas in subsequent issues of the Allard map, an inset of New Zealand appears. In the present issue, there are no toponyms on Terra Esonis and the South Pacific is without New Guinea. Cf. Burden, The Mapping of North America II: 724 (discussing the map under the entry for Allard); Wagner, Cartography of the Northwest Coast, 496; Tooley, "California as an Island," 68 in Tooley, The Mapping of America; McLaughlin,The Mapping of California as an Island, 176.

        L'Amerique Septentrionale

      Paris: "Chez l'Auteur sur le Quai de l'Horloge", 1700 [circa 1708]. Copper- engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline. 19 3/4 x 26 1/8 inches. A foundation map of America. "In 1700, Claude and Guillaume De L'Isle [first] published their foundation map of North America. What better way to usher in the eighteenth century cartographically than with this significant and influential map. It encapsulates an era in which the French exemplified a reliance on scientific mapping and beautifully incorporated it into the earlier influence of decorative augmentation" (Burden). Tooley adds: "A foundation map. The Great Lakes based on Coronelli show the French strong points at Tadousac, Quebec, Fort Sorel, Montreal & Fort Frontenac. the English settlements confined to the east of the Alleghenies, with Fort and River Kinibeki as the border between New England and Acadia. The Mississippi valley area is shown well developed with the recent French settlement of d'Iberville at Bilochy and forts at Bon Secours and St. Louis. In this map De L'Isle corrected longitude positions and was the first to revert to a peninsula form of California." Perhaps most significantly, in the second and subsequent states of the map the mouth of the Mississippi is accurately shown for the first time, being the first map to depict information from the surveys of the D'Iberville expedition. This copy Burden's sixth state, with De L'Isle's address as "Quai de l'Horloge" and with Renard's imprint erased.

        THE ANGLER'S VADE MECUM: Or, a Compendious, yet full, Discourse of Angling.

      Third Edition. William Battersby. 1700.. pp326, plus five leaves of index including catalogue. Small 8vo. Illustrated, inscription, with some slight foxing mainly to page ends and slight browning mainly to the boards. Contemporary panelled calf on boards, spine calf is 20th century and lighter than boards calf, lacks rear ep., otherwise VG. With two plates, illustrated with pictures of fish. There is a good inscription by Thomas Edlyne Tomlins, Islington, London 1863 on the merits of the book. Tomlins' father (his signature appears here too) wrote a number of books on law, and he himself wrote `Yseldon: A Perambutlation if Islington' 1858. This is a book which seems cannot be found perfect. In particular the plates always seem to be missing or margins damaged with text missing, or pages or title page missing, etc. This copy here lacks the rear end paper only and as such is probably as close to a perfect copy as has been offered on the market for some time. Angling books of the date are almost impossible to obtain. The first edition was 1681, second 1689. CCPS2003 US$0

        Limeneuretike [in Greek] sive Portuum investigandorum ratio. Metaphraste Hug. Grotio Batavo.Leiden: Officina Plantiniana, 1599.

      First Latin edition, very rare, of Stevin's important contribution to the art of maritime position finding by use of the compass and its deviation, published at the same time as the original Dutch edition (<i>De Havenvinding</i>). "In a seafaring nation like the Dutch republic matters of navigation were, of course, of great importance... in a short treatise entitled <i>De Havenvinding</i>, [Stevin] approached the subject of determining the longitude of a ship, a problem that was not fully solved until the nineteenth century. Several previous authors had suggested that longitude might be determined by measuring the deviation of the magnetic needle from the astronomical meridian, a suggestion based on the assumption that the earthwide distribution of terrestrial magnetism was known. Since the determination of latitude was well known, such a measurement would allow the sailor to chart longitudinal position against the latitudinal circle.<br/><br/> "Stevin, in his booklet, gave a clear explanation of this method; he differed from Petrus Plancius and Mercator in that he did not rely upon a priori conceptions of the way in which geomagnetic deviation depends upon geographical position. Although he was willing to offer a conjecture about this dependence, Stevin insisted on the necessity of collecting actual measurements from all possible sources and urged the establishment of an empirical, worldwide survey. His method was sound, although as data began to accumulate it became clear that the magnetic elements were subject to secular variation. The problem was at last solved more simply by the invention of the ship's chronometer" (DSB XIII, 49). Halley made use of Stevin's method in his map of isogones published in 1700. <br/><br/> Christoffel Raphelengius was granted the privilege to print the work, in any language, in August 1599. An English edition was prepared by Edward Wright on the advice of Richard Hakluyt, while a French edition was entitled <i>Le Trouve Port</i>. The Latin translation was entrusted to the young and highly precocious Hugo Grotius, whose father Jan had been a long-standing associate of Stevin's. One of his very earliest works, Grotius' translation began an enterprise which culminated in his great <i>Mare Liberum (On the Freedom of the Seas)</i> of 1609. <br/><br/> All editions of Stevin's work are of exceptional rarity, only a single copy of any edition having appeared at British and American auctions in over 30 years: the copy of Wright's English translation sold at the Penrose sale in 1971 and then in the Streeter sale of 2007, currently being offered in the trade at $72,500. <br/><br/> Bierens de Haan 4565; Dijksterhuis X and pp 87-92; OCLC lists no copy in America.. Small 4to (210 x 148 mm), pp [xii] 21 [1], with woodcut printer's compass device on title and three woodcut illustrations in text, two full-page; a few leaves with very faint waterstain, a very good copy in old marbled wrappers

        Sciagraphia juris divini naturalis, poritivi & gentium.

      In qua officia honimun, civium, gentium, ad justum methoum ex veris suis fontibus sunt expressa & delineata. Auctore Jona Billovio. (Uppsala, 1700.) 8:o. (16),+ 208 s. Enstaka småfläckar. Samtida pergamentband. Lång helsides handskriven dedikation till Samuel Bark på försättsbladet. Ur det Cederhielmska biblioteket på Säby, med Germund Ludvig Cederhielms initialer på frampärmens insida. Lidén s. 332 för dissertationsupplagan under Carl Lundius presidium. Björne s. 45. Carlander II, 186f. Detta är bokhandelsupplagan, med ett nytt titelblad. Jonas (eller Johan) Billovius (ca. 1660-1712) blev adjunkt vid juridiska fakulteten i Uppsala 1698, akademisekreterare 1703 och två år före sin död professor i philosophia civili. Avhandlingen som är en översiktlig lärobok ledde till en revirstrid mellan den filosofiska och den juridiska fakulteten om naturrättens tillhörighet. Ämbetsmannen och det blivande riksrådet Samuel Bark (1662-1743) hade efter sin hemkomst från sina utrikes studieresor 1695 blivit anställd i kungl. kansliet. Han är idag mest känd för sin brevväxling med Olof Hermelin. Hans för sin tid stora bibliotek såldes på auktion 1744. Det stora biblioteket på Säby i Östergötland byggdes upp av fyra generationer Cederhielm, varav Germund Ludvig (1755-1841) var den sista. Efter att ha stått nedpackat såldes biblioteket slutligen under 13 auktionsdagar åren 1878, 1880 och 1882

An advisor to three Kings in his lifetime, Halifax was involved in many of the momentous events that affected England in the second half of the eighteenth century. Elevated to the peerage and sent on a diplomatic mission to France by Charles II, he was made Lord Privy Seal under William III. Two different tracts, both entitled "A Letter to a Dissenter", are present. The second, "...from his Friend at the Hague...", 16 pp, collates as part of the original volume but is by Daniel Defoe, while Halifax's own piece under the same title, 30 pp, has been inserted. Moore's Checklist of the Writings of Daniel Defoe, 5, notes this confusion. The "Funeral Poem" to Halifax's memory at the beginning of the volume is by the playwright Elkanah Settle. Wing H315.

Matthieu Souverain (d. ca. 1699) was a Huguenot who settle in England, and a notorious Socinian. Here, he discusses the doctrine of the Logos in St. John's Gospel. This work attracted considerable attention, and was certainly read by Locke. An English translation appeared in 1700, and a German one in 1782. There is also a modern edition, published by Fayard of Paris, in 2004.

        An Essay Concerning Humane Understanding. In Four Books. Written by John Locke, Gent. The Fourth Edition, with Large Additions.

      Complete with fine engraved frontispiece portrait by Vanderbanck after Brounower, [40], 226, 233-438, [12]pp., [with the usual error in paging with pp.227-232 omitted and some pages misnumbered, these being 91/92 as p.93/94; p.95/96 numeration duplicated; p.371 as p.317; p.380 as p.390; p.381 as p.391]. This copy with 8 preliminary contents leaves (being signatures b-c) also in duplicate one set being erroneously sewn in after Epistle. * This copy also, very intriguingly, has, inserted loose, a copy of the first 4 pages of Book I Chapter I, transcribed on two folio manuscript leaves in a fine unidentified early 18thC hand. * Tall folio, a fine and attractive copy in contemporary spotted calf, spine elaborately gilt in compartments between raised bands with red leather label, front hinge professionally and almost invisibly restored, boards with gilt fillets, London: printed for Awnsham and John Churchill.., and Samuel Manship, 1700. * PROVENANCE: With the 18thC signature of Robert Maxwell on the first blank flyleaf and his elaborate 18thC engraved armorial bookplate reading "Robert Maxwell of Finnebrogue" [County Down, Northern Ireland] on verso of title. Finnebrogue House, still standing, dates back to 1623 and is the oldest inhabited house in Northern Ireland. *This is the penultimate lifetime edition of Locke's major work and the last lifetime edition issued with the fine portrait, and - other than the first - the most important edition, since it has the significant addition by Locke of the chapter on the association of ideas (Book II Chapter XXXIII), as well as a chapter on enthusiasm, (Book IV Chapter XIX), as well as additions to Book III.vi.26 and Book IV.xii.6. *"Locke's chapter title -- though not his actual discussion of the subject -- is the origin of associationism, as elaborated much later by Hartley, Hume, James Mill, and Bain and, mistaken interpretation or not, is consensually regarded as the Ursprung of experimental psychology as opposed to merely speculative philosophical psychology." GM #4967; PMM #164; Wing L2742. * Locke (1632-1704) took up Bacon's challenge "to estimate critically the certainty and adequacy of human knowledge when confronted with God and the universe" (Lilly Library, Printing and the Mind of Man, 148). It is a study that has "remained fundamental to philosophical discussion ever since" (op. cit.). Leclerc called the fourth edition the "best edition."

Esemplare genuino e marginoso con qualche brunitura, lievi gore chiare e moderate tracce d'uso. Complessivamente buon esemplare. Antico ex libris manoscritto ed etichetta del libraio Michel'Angelo Fumanelli. Opera classica, spesso ristampata, con capitoli riguardanti l'agricoltura e la gastronomia. Sempre citata nelle bibliografie venatorie per il capitolo finale sul cacciatore e per vari altri richiami nel testo. Cfr. Ceresoli, Westbury e Piantanida (1807) che citando la prima edizione (del 1644) afferma: ""Il libro I tratta del pane e del vino; il II delle viti e delle api; il III del cortile con interessanti nozioni di culinaria; il IV dell'orto e del modo di cucinare le verdure; il V del giardino; il VI della coltivazione dei campi; il VII delle influenze del sole e della luna sulla coltivazione con curiose descrizioni di banchetti e pranzi e consigli sulla caccia"". Di notevole interesse inoltre altri capitoli di gastronomia tra cui uno elenca i 110 modi per condire e cucinare la carne di maiale.
