1700. Click here to see our other books! Remaines Concerning Britaine By William Camden 1637 - London - Printed by Thomas Harper for John Waterson 7.5" by 5.5", (8), 420pp DETAILS Bound in reverse calf. The Fift Impression, with many rare Antiquities never before imprinted. By the industry and care of John Philipot, Somerset Herald. Originally published in 1605 as: Remaines of a greater worke, concerning Britaine. This copy matches the ESTC #S107503. Page 201/202 is missing, along with four pages to the rear. "Bringing together Camden's interest in literature and language, and social and cultural history, including both popular and high culture, the Remaines contains a wealth of material. Moreover, as a collection it reflects the unusual moment in the emergence of early modern Britain when the artefacts of the vernacular culture were coming to be valued in new ways. With the first historically organized anthology of medieval poetry, a historical and comparative study of the English language, collections of names and their meanings, of (in the words of one of the chapter headings) 'grave speeches, and wittie apothogemes', and of epitaphs, it can be seen as a popular spin-off from its more expensive and serious historical mother lode, the Britannia" -ODNB. William Camden, 1551-1623, historian and herald. "Camden's intellectual and literary legacy to his own and succeeding generations has been considerable. His work and friendship exerted both direct and indirect influence on writers and historians and helped transform the methods of historical enquiry and the forms and genres … [Click Below for Full Description]

Annotationes in Libros Evangeliorum by Hugo Grotius. 1641 - Amsterdam - Apud & Cornelium13" by 9"; 1060[85],[36]pp. ~ DETAILS A good copy of this work, in a recent binding.Hugo Grotius (1583-1645) was a prodigious Dutch lawyer. He entered University at Leyden at 12; and was appointed Historian of the States General at 18, and Advocate Fiscal at 24. He travelled to England in a diplomatic capacity in 1613, before becoming Pensionary of Rotterdam. His Arminian theology and attempts to facilitate peace between theologically-opposed factions earned him a life sentence in 1618; although he escaped to Paris in 1621. He attempted to return to Holland in 1631, but was banished and settled in Sweden. In 1635 he returned to Paris in an ambassadorial capacity for the Kingdom of Sweden. He was killed in a shipwreck on a voyage home in 1645.Within his 'Annotations,' he applies philological criticism to the text of the Bible whilst contemporaneously moderating them with the assertion that (as in law) convention plays an enormously important role in theology, such that correct interpretation of the scriptures requires respect for the Church's traditions.

(PICTURES BELOW DESCRIPTION) FABLES ANCIENT AND MODERN 1700; John Dryden; 1st Edition; London, Jacob Tonson; Folio Leather, Re-backed; 38/646 Pages; w8.1"xh13.2"; Very Rare! ATTRIBUTES: Beautiful panelled leather cover design, Blind stamped borders/Floral corners, Darker toned centerpiece strips, Re-backed leather binding/Dark Maroon label, Nice large/bold half titles to each selection, And Lots of Legendary Classics, In early modern English on handmade paper! SUMMARY: Fables, Ancient and Modern is a collection of translations of classical and medieval poetry by John Dryden interspersed with some of his own works. Published in March 1700, it was his last and one of his greatest works. Dryden died two months later. Fables, Ancient and Modern contains translations of the First Book of Homer's Iliad, eight selections from Ovid's Metamorphoses, three of Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales (and an imitation from the Prologue on "The Character of a Good Parson"), the later medieval poem The Flower and the Leaf, which he thought was by Chaucer, and three stories from Boccaccio. The volume also contains a number of Dryden's own works, including "Alexander's Feast" and an impressive preface in which he lauds Chaucer, calling him "the Father of English poetry". All the translations are in his characteristic heroic couplet, which uses alexandrines and triplets to vary the movement. BACKGROUND: John Dryden (19 August 1631 - 12 May 1700) was an English poet, literary critic, translator, and playwright who was made England's first Poet Laureate in 1668. He is seen as dominating the liter … [Click Below for Full Description]

Locke John
1700. Condition: Good. FIRST EDITION OF THE FRENCH TRANSLATION OF THIS GREAT PHILOSOPHICAL TREATISE. In-4 ( 20.5 x 25.5 cm), connected full time calf, back to 5 nerves, title piece, jaspees slices. First edition of the translation by Pierre Coste of this Treaty of John Locke (here French "Jean Locke"). John Locke was one of the first thinkers of "materialism empiricist in English" (current stretching from the late 17th to the 18th century). His philosophy, basically empiricist, expressed through the precise study of the sensations, which forms the fundamental basis of his thought. This Treaty, the "philosophical essay concerning human understanding", is the first stone, and the cornerstone. Its publication also gave rise to very many reactions, the most famous being that of Leibniz, who believed to have to take a stand by publishing a "new essay concerning human understanding", who comments on and tries to refute, chapter by chapter. the theses of John Locke. The trial of Locke, introduced in France at the beginning of the 18th century by Pierre Coste, delivering here a translation based on the fourth edition (revised, corrected and augmented by Locke), played a fundamental role in the discovery of empiricism English by the philosophers of the enlightenment. Pierre Coste, the translator, is a very prominent name in the history of ideas in France, since it is, in addition to the translator of this Treaty, the translator of "Optics", Newton, and "Use of the taunt" Shaftesbury. Not to mention the annotated editions that he gave a few large texts in french, starting with the "t … [Click Below for Full Description]

MAYERNE, Theodore Turquet de
1700 1st ed Opera Medica Theodore Mayerne Royal Medicine & Surgery HUGE FOLIO Theodore de Mayerne was a 16th-century Swiss Huguenot physician who is remembered for treating the Kings of France and the Stuart Kings of England in the early 17th-century. He made significant medical discoveries and helped shape the use of chemical principles into medicine. His most important written work was ‘Opera Medica,’ a large collection of medical treatises and discussions on medicine. Within this work, ‘Pharmacopoea’ contains regulations for preparation of many chemicals and how they should be handled to become medicine. He describes the chemical properties of hydrogen gas and its susceptibility to combustion, mercuric sulfides, benzoic acids used to clean oils, iron and tin and the metallic properties of other earth metals, plus much more! This incredibly rare first edition was edited by Joseph Browne and includes descriptions and notes on the symptoms and diseases of English and French royalty, such as Queen of France Henrietta Maria’s swollen feet, ulcers, feeble joins, and irritability. He even notes that he needed to ‘cure her mind no less than her body!’ (Moore, 107). According to Moore, only fragments of Mayerne’s works were ever printed prior to 1700. It wasn’t until then “that a volume in folio of his notes was printed [and edited] by Dr. Joseph Browne. He selected such parts as he thought Mayerne would have wished to print Browne wisely decided to issue the papers unaltered. His book contained full notes of more than forty cases observed by Mayerne, with letters about seven mor … [Click Below for Full Description]

BOULAINVILLIERS (Henri de) ] (?).
A Cologne, chez Jacques Le Sage, 1700. in-12. 58pp. (1f.blanc). Cartonnage moderne à la Bradel. Edition Originale très rare, parue clandestinement, de ce pamphlet philosophique attribué sans certitude au Comte de Boulainvilliers (1658-1722). Initialement répandu sous forme de copies manuscrites, ce récit imaginaire d'une visite d'Hippocrate à Damagète sert de prétexte à une réflexion sur l'origine et l'utilité sociale des religions, et il constitue un jalon pour l'historien de la philosophie clandestine de l'âge classique en France. "Boulainvillers esquisse un Essai de métaphysique et note soigneusement ses lectures spinozistes; mais il suit, lui aussi, l'exemple de La Mothe le Vayer en composant une 'Histoire des opinions des Anciens sur la nature de l'âme', et celui de Locke en rédigeant un rapide 'Traité sur l'immortalité de l'âme'. Surtout, sa 'Lettre d'Hippocrate à Damagète', publiée dès 1700, servira de modèle à la génération suivante. Dans cette lettre fictive, Hippocrate rapporte le discours de Démocrite sur les mystères de la nature, sur les religions et les sectes et sur l'existence de Dieu" (McKenna). "Many of the clandestine tracts concern themselves with questions of ethics and psychology and constitute a rudimentary natural history of religions and societies. The first of these in date is called 'Lettre d'Hypocrate à Damagette' and was written by 1700 at latest. It claims to be an authentic letter from Hippocrates to an unknown correspondent, using a device which was to be common in an age of strict censorship. Its author adopts an entirely sociological attitu … [Click Below for Full Description]
