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

      Paris, l'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'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.

        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 colour. 25 x 20 inches. 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).

      Kobberstik. 33 x 22 cm. Ikke koloreret. Paris, privilegium dateret 1700. Nyere ramme med passepartout. Rammen måler 51 x 36 cm.. Kobberstik fra Nicolas de Fers "Atlas Curieux".Nicolas de Fer (1646-1720) var en fransk kartograf, kobberstikker og forlægger, der blev meget anerkendt af sin samtid, heriblandt det franske kongehus : Han blev i 1711 udnævnt til geograf for Solkongen, Ludvig den Fjortende, efter at han allerede i 1690 var udnævnt til kongelig geograf for tronfølgeren Ludvig og i 1702 tillige var blevet kongelig geograf for tronfølgerens søn, Kong Filip den Femte af Spanien.Nicolas de Fer nød godt af den kongelige protektion - som tak fremhævede han fordelene ved Bourbonernes styre, og hans arbejder afspejler Solkongens ekspansionspolitik.Nicolas de Fer udsendte adskillige værker, heriblandt "Les Côtes de France" 1690, "La France Triomphante Sous le Règne de Louis le Grand" 1693, "Atlas Royal" 1695, "Petit et Nouveau Atlas" 1697 og "Atlas Curieux" 1700-1705."Atlas Curieux" havde oprindelig en mere omfattende titel : "L'Atlas Curieux ou le Monde Représenté dans des Cartes Générales et Particulières du Ciel et de la Terre". Der kom ialt 6 dele, udsendt i årene 1700 til 1705. Værket blev en stor succes, og de enkelte bind blev straks udsendt i forøgede udgaver.Nærværende kobberstik kendes således også i et tryk med privilegium dateret 1705

        Selecta Sacra. Libri Quinque. Cum Indicibus locupletissimis, & Tabulis Aeneis elegantissimis

      Henricum Wetstenium Amsterdam Henricum Wetstenium 1700g Octavo. 53, [11], 805, [111]pp. Original blind stamped vellum with handwritten lettering on spine. Additional engraved title page. Title page in red and black lettering. Printer's device on title page. Remarkable work by Johannes Braun (1628-1708) the renowned professor of theology and Hebrew at the university of Groningen. A disciple of the Dutch Christian Hebraist Johannes Coccejus in theology, Braun adhered to Cartesianism in philosophical matters, publishing several scholarly, didactic and polemic works on the matter. He interacted with Descartes' chief intellectual heirs, Gottfried Leibniz and Benedict Spinoza. Braun corresponded was Leibniz. He knew at least some of Spinoza's works, and rejected the latter's alleged atheism. Braun exemplifies the early Conservative Enlightenment, which strove to integrate the new philosophy into a traditional orthodox theological structure. For him Cartesianism was a tool in a rationalist approach to theology and (particularly) in demarcating theology from philosophy. In this respect, his position is exemplary for the adaptations taking place in institutional philosophy around 1700. This book is profusely illustrated with 13 fine engravings (including 3 folding). Includes one plate showing the Molach. Spine and edges of binding darkened. Head of spine repaired. Front hinge starting. Minor browning and foxing along paper margin. Folding engraving facing page 225 repaired. Text in Latin with some Hebrew throughout. Binding in overall fair, interior in good+ condition.

      Jacob Tonson London: Jacob Tonson. 1700. First. First edition. Folio. 646, [2] pp. Complete with the half-title leaf. 33.5 cm. A fair copy lacking both boards, with half of the calf spine back remaining, raised bands. The text block and pages are sound and complete, with soiling to the front and back free endpapers. There is one small area of browning and chipping at the back upper corner at the spine top. The fraying at this corner affects the last printed leaf (of The Table) which is also torn along the gutter, and the browning pervades through about the last quarter of the block. Else very good with only light browning and very little spotting to the text pages. .

        "Viaggio settentrionale Fatto, e Descritto Dal Molto Sig.r D. Francesco Negri Da Ravenna..."

      The complete book, 4to, 21,7x16,2cm Contemporary full vellum with handwritten title on spine XXX pp. (first four blank, 1 leaf (imprimatur "Noi Refformatori"), 208 pp., 4 leaves index, 1 engraved portrait of the author and 17 engraved folding plates. Padova 1700 Francesco Negri was an Italian clergyman who travelled in Scandinavia in 1664 - 65 and wrote many letters describing the native people of the North. He was also the first after Olaus Magnus to mention skiing. He first travelled through Sweden to Denmark where he met King Fredrik III, and then along the Norwegian coast from Bergen - Trondheim (including a visit to Østraat and Ove Bjelke) - Bjørnør - Næø - Torghatten - Rødø - Malstrømmen. As the first Italian he reached the North Cape, and in the North Cape Centre there is an exhibition vitrine displaying different scenes from F. Negri's visit. This book and travel account was based on his letters, and published by his heirs after his death. The content can be considered as a "scientific" document because it is intended to confute some legendary and fabulous statements by Olaus Magnus and give the reader a thorough and detailed description of places, people, human types, customs and habits. To accompany the text the book was illustrated with 17 folded plates (a small tear connected to a fold on two plates) from Lapland. The book stands as an important reference work of the North from the 17th/18th century. The book is divided in eight letters but useful information was added to the letters after Negri's return to Italy in 1666. Part one covers Lapland, part five, six and seven are describing his travel in Norway and the last is devoted to Finnmark and the North Cape. Francesco Negri's work has always been regarded as a rare book. Excellent, complete copies including the blank leaves and in contemporary vellum are a great rarity. A second edition, also very rare, was published in 1701. Provenance: Bookplate "Biondella Di Valpantena Verona, 44 eredi Tiepelo della Persia". E.H. Schiøtz "Utlendingers reiser I Norge" nr. 723b***, Nordnorsk Kunstmuseum "Voyage pittoresque - Reiseskildringer fra nord" Tromsø 2005, page 12 - 13 illustrated
