        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. Burden, The Mapping of North America II: 761 (state 6); Tooley, "French Mapping of the Americas" 30 in Tooley, The Mapping of North America; McCorkle, New England in Early Printed Maps 700.5.

        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

      London: Printed for Matt. Gillyflower 1700.. First collected edition, 8vo, (ii), 21, (1), 84, (vi), 97, (1), 42, (ii), 30, 16, (ii), 44, (ii), 21, (1, ii), 6, (4) pp. Frontispiece, one leaf with a closed tear and slight loss the outer margin, not affecting text, some browning, 2 ink stamps to title, contemporary inscription to fly leaf, paste downs taken from a contemporary theological work, later small Library label to front paste down. Contemporary panelled calf, blind triple rules and corner decorations, some light wear, neatly rebacked. 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.

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

      Japan. early 1800s. [Japan. early 1800s].. 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, 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.

        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).

        Le platonisme devoilé. Ou essai touchant le verbe platonicien. Divisé en deux parties

      Cologne: Chez Pierre Marteau, 1700 First edition. Contemporary calf, gilt spine. . Twelvemo. Some wear to upper cover, front joint neatly repaired, spine lettering a bit flaked. A very good copy. From the Macclesfield Library, with their bookplate, and the notation that this was a gift from the publisher ("Ex dono Editoris"). 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."

      A Paris: Chez jean Anisson, 1700. relié. In 12 (8,5x16,2cm). Edition originale. Pleine Basane d&#39;époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Un manque en coiffe inférieure. Mors fendu en queue sur 1cm. Coins émoussés. Le premier feuillet est blanc. Collation conforme à l&#39;exemplaire d&#39;Oxford. Les premiers flagellants apparaissent au XIe siècle et le mouvement redoublera de vigueur durant les pestes noires en Europe, il atteignit ainsi son apogée durant le XIVe siècle.

Le mouvement devient rapidement anarchique et une menace pour l&#39;ordre, tant de l&#39;église que de la société. Le pape les livre à l&#39;inquisition en 1349, et le roi de France Philippe V interdit les flagellants sous peine de mort. - Chez jean Anisson, A Paris _1700, In 12 (8,5x16,2cm), (20) 341pp. (19), relié. - relié

        Luctus Britannici: Or The Tears Of The British Muses; For The Death Of John Dryden, Esq; Late Poet Laureat to Their Majesties K. Charles and K. James the Second. Written by the most eminent hands in the two famous universities, and by several others

      Printed: 1700. 1675-1731 Folio, 10.75 x 7.5 inches. First edition. 2 l. unsigned, B-P2, Aa-Ff2. This copy is disbound and housed in a custom made blue buckram phase box with 'Drydeniana' tooled in gilt on the spine. This rare poetical miscellany contains more than fifty poems in English, Latin, and Greek, written by scholars of Oxford and of Cambridge, including established poets such as Robert Gould, and perhaps the first appearance in print by Elizabeth Thomas (page 13-15). Elizabeth Thomas was born in London, the only child of Elizabeth Osborne (d. 1719), aged 16, and lawyer Emmanuel Thomas (d. 1677), aged 60. Her father died when she was an infant and she and her mother faced financial hardship. She was educated at home, was well read, and learnt some French and Latin. As an impoverished gentlewoman, she was dependent on others for patronage, and she was fortunate to be part of an illustrious artistic and literary circle which included Lady Mary Chudleigh, Mary Astell, Judith Drake, Elizabeth Elstob, Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, John Norris, and painter Sarah Hoadly, wife of Benjamin Hoadly. She sent Dryden two poems not long before his death, and he responded, "your Verses were, I thought, too good to be a Woman's."[1] He went on to compare her to Katherine Philips, and it was he who gave her her nomme de plume, "Corinna." Her first known publication was an elegy, "To the Memory of the Truly Honoured John Dryden, Esq.," published anonymously in the collection Luctus Britannici (1700). She was engaged for sixteen years to Richard Gwinnett (1675-1717), though the couple were not in a financial position to marry until 1716, at which point Thomas postponed the marriage in order to nurse her terminally ill mother. Gwinnett died the next year, and although he left Thomas a bequest, his family suppressed his will and after litigation Thomas could not even cover her legal costs. During their engagement they had maintained an extensive correspondence, much of which was published in Pylades and Corinna (1731-2) and The Honourable Lovers (1732; reprinted in 1736). Thomas was active and had a reputation in London and Bath literary circles. She experimented with a wide range of literary forms including lyrics, panegyrics, pastorals, polemics, religious meditations, and satires. Much of her poetry dealt with women's issues, particularly women's right to education, as women were in her time "still deny'd th'Improvement of our Mind."[2] Her work initially circulated in manuscript, but due to financial necessity she published Miscellany Poems on Several Subjects anonymously in 1722, and thereafter sought publication. Her friend Henry Cromwell some time earlier had given Thomas some letters he had received from Alexander Pope which she, needing money, sold to Edmund Curll in 1726. Curll promptly published them in Miscellanea in Two Volumes (1726), much to the irritation of Pope. For this infraction he lampooned Thomas in The Dunciad as "Curll's Corinna" (II 66). A minor revenge was attributed to her by Pope - the publication of Codrus, or, 'The Dunciad' Dissected (1728) - though she was incarcerated at the time it was published. Her reputation was severely damaged by the notoriety, and she was long believed to have been Cromwell's mistress though there is no reason to believe that she was. She continued to publish with Curll through the 1720s but was unable to meet her debts and was gaoled in the Fleet prison in 1727 for three years. Her health was never strong, and she died within a year of her release, alone and in lodgings, and was buried at Saint Bride's, Fleet Street.

        Memoire pour servir à l&#39;histoire naturelle du lion, de la lionne, du caméléon, de l&#39;ours, de la gazelle, du chat-pard, du renard marin, du loup-cervier, de la loutre, de la civette, de l&#39;élan, du veau marin & du chamois; par Charles Perrault, avec douze figures gravées d&#39;après Séb. Leclerc, par de bons artistes

      Paris, l&#39;Imprimerie du Louvre, 1700. Folio (42.2 x 28.0 cm). Half title, title page with engraved vignette, 124 pp., 20 large, finely engraved plates. Contemporary full calf. Spine with six raised bands, compartments with gilt ornaments. Marbled endpapers. Edges speckled red.* A rare and perhaps unique copy of this early and influential work on comparative zoology, morphology and anatomy by the French zoologist, Latinist, architect, and founding member of the Académie de Sciences, Claude Perrault (1613-1688). According to a note written below the advice to the binder, this is the 1688 edition, augmented with eight additional plates. Indeed, apart from the animals mentioned in the title (lion, lioness, chameleon, bear, gazelle, leopard, shark, lynx, otter, civet, eland, sea cow (actually a seal), and chamois) there are images of a pangolin, caracal, hog-like animal, two species of stork, spoonbill, ostrich, gazelle, hedgehog and porcupine, the latter two on one plate. Only the gazelle has an additional description, whereas on pp. 119-123 there is an extensive description of the cormoran (cormorant) and on p. 124 a one page description of the cocq-indien (curassow) which, however, are not figured. There is only one copy mentioned in an antiquarian catalogue during the last 40 years, and one copy in a French library, however, with 12 plates and 118 pages only. Brunet states that the 1688 edition has four, not eight, additional plates and 124 text pages, and the 1700 title edition had only 16 plates and 118 text pages, that is: the same as the one copy on record in a French library. On the title page the author is named Charles Pérault, a double error for Claude Perrault. Perrault had died more than a decade before and apparently nobody cared to check his name. Charles was the name of Claude&#39;s younger brother, who best known for creating a new literary genre, the fairy tale. The "Memoire" in the title is a small error for "Mémoires" but apart from these peculiarities this edition is carefully executed. Boards rubbed, spine label absent, small wormhole through several text and plate leaves, inscribed by former owner in the half-title top margin, old annotation in the margin of the front flyleaf verso, some scattered marginal foxing but internally a good clean copy. Very rare. Brunet IV, p. 507; Nissen ZBI, 3122 (for the shorter 1669 edition).

        [Still-life of flowers in a vase]

      [Paris]: N. De Poilly, [no date but circa 1700?]. Etching and engraving, coloured by hand, by J. Baptiste Monnoyer. Expertly executed repairs to both bottom corners. 18 7/8 x 14 1/2 inches. 20 5/8 x 15 1/2 inches. A delightful composition from one of the great early figures in French botanical art: the strong lines of the vase contrasting with the apparently informal arrangment of the flowers. A beautiful image with the arrangment of flowers including galdioli, tulips, anemones, a poppy, an auricula and a spray of apple blossom, the vase is decorated with a classical baccanalian scene: the dancing satyr and nymph emphasizing the strong sense of movement and life in the composition. Jean-Baptiste Monnoyer set a style of decorative flower painting for the adornment of great French residences including Versailles. Born in Lille in 1636, he began his artistic career in Anvers as a student of Davidsz de Heem. Briefly painting historical scenes, Monnoyer quickly turned to the painting of flowers and fruit for which he is most famous. In 1655 he moved to Paris where he found favor amongst the French aristocracy and was employed to paint murals in many of the Royal chateaux including Vincennes, Saint Cloud, Versailles, le Grand Trianon and Marly. While in France, Monnoyer drew cartoons for tapestries for Gobelins and also engraved several prints of vases of flowers. He became a member of the Academy in 1663. In 1685 Monnoyer accepted an invitation given by the English Ambassador to France, Lord Montague, to decorate Montague House. While in London he also worked for Marie II and Queen Anne at Kensington House. Monnoyer died in London in 1699. Cf. Dunthorne p.224

        [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.

        Novum Testamentum Hebraeo-Teutonicum

      Michaelis Gottschalckii Michael Gottschack Francofurti ad Oderam (Frankfurt an der Oder) Michaelis Gottschalckii (Michael Gottschack) 1700 First edition g Octavo. Original full calf. Title page in Yiddish and Latin. Vignette on title page. Decorative head-, tailpieces, and initials. First complete printing of the New Testament in Yiddish. The first effort at a Yiddish translation of the New Testament seems to be that of Johann Harzuge, a convert. His version (Cracow, 1540), which does not include Revelations, follows Luther's German version and is printed in Rashi script. The next attempt at a Yiddish NT (Strassburg, 1592) was that of Elias Schadeus, who translated only five books, also following Luther. Christian Moeller translated all of the NT into Yiddish (this copy). Binding darkened and rubbed along edges. Moderate abrasion on front cover. Bookplate on inside of front cover (London Society for Promoting Christianity amongst The Jews). Free front endpaper inscribed by previous owner, and dated 1819. Sporadic browning throughout. Fly leaf at rear partly chipped. Text in Yiddish. Binding in overall fair, interior in good to good+ condition.

        Le platonisme devoil?Ou essai touchant le verbe platonicien. Divis?n deux parties

      Chez Pierre MarteauCologne: Chez Pierre Marteau, 1700 First edition. Contemporary calf, gilt spine. . Twelvemo. Some wear to upper cover, front joint neatly repaired, spine lettering a bit flaked. A very good copy. From the Macclesfield Library, with their bookplate, and the notation that this was a gift from the publisher ("Ex dono Editoris"). 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.
