        THEATRO MORAL DA LA VIDA HUMANA.

      - EN CIEN EMBLEMAS CON EL ENCHIRIDION DE EPICTETO, Y LA TABLA DE CEBES, PHILOSOFO PLATONICO. [Vinheta dos impressores]. EN AMBERES, Por HENRICO Y CORNELIO VERDUSSEN. Año M. D. CCI. [1701]. In fólio (de 35x24 cm) com [xviii]-207-17-[viii]-50-[1] pags. Encadernação da época em pergaminho flexível com título manuscrito na lombada. Profusamente ilustrado no texto e com uma gravura desdobrável em extra-texto, entre as páginas 2 e 3 da segunda parte da obra ?La Tabla de Cebes?, apresentando um rasgo marginal recuperável. Obra ilustrada com gravuras de emblemática [emblemata] reproduzindo elementos arquitecturais, com motivos sagrados e motivos profanos, acompanhando os comentários às máximas ou motes latinos. Os livros de ?emblemática? contendo representações pictóricas cujo significado simbólico é expresso em palavras foram produzidos em grandes quantidades e em vários idiomas durante os séculos XVI e XVII. Nos estudos do Renascimento e do Barroco, os críticos literários e os historiadores de arte reconhecem cada vez mais a importância deste tema: emblema/emblemática. A emblemática fornece pistas importantes e mostra - com brevidade de estilo ? a preocupação com a natureza eterna do homem e as suas contradições; o ouvido atento ao discurso oral popular; o desdobramento da personalidade; a loucura; a reflexão sobre a existência humana; a relação entre o homem e a mulher; a luta entre a razão e a paixão; e uma sátira à sociedade, às suas regras e aos seus governantes. Emblematica or emblemata engravings with scriptural mottoes in Spanish and in Latim followed by a prose commentary. Emblem books containing pictorial representations whose symbolic meaning is expressed in words were produced in great quantities and in numerous languages during the 16th and 17th Centuries. Today literary critics and art historians increasingly recognize the importance of the emblem in Renaissance and Baroque studies. Emblematica provides important clues and shows - with brevity of style - concern for the eternal nature of man and its contradictions, the attentive ear to the popular speech, the unfolding of the personality, madness, the reflection on human existence, the relationship between man and the woman, the struggle between reason and passion, and to the satire of society and its rules and rulers. Binding: contemporary flexible vellum with title writen at spine. Location/localizacao: raros

        El Nuevo Mundo. Poemma Heroyco de D. Francisco Botello de Moraes y Vasconcelos; con las Alegorias de Don Pedro de Castro, Cavallero Andaluz. Dedicalo su autor a la Catholica Magestad de Philippo Quinto, Augusto, Piadoso,

      Barcelona: Imprenta de Ivan Pablo Marti, por Francisco Barnola Impressor, 1701.. 14 lvs, [1]-10, 9-38, 1 lv., [2] pp., 39-268, 257-476 pp. Sm. 8vo. Contemporary vellum, title lettered in manuscript. First edition. Palau 33684. Sabin 6797. Medina, BHA 2027. Leclerc 75. Ticknor p.42. Inncencio II: 642. Numerous errors in pagination. A heroic poem on the discovery of America by Columbus and the Spanish conquests -influenced mostly likely by Bacon's view of conquest as philosophical, rather than just military- written in Spanish by the Portuguese born writer Francisco Botello de Moraes (1670-1747) who lived most of his life in Spain and Italy. Composed in his youth and never completed, with gaps left blank at a number of stanzas (libro i, stanza 78-107; ii. 60-80 ; iii. 103-143; vi. 88-228; vii. 54-73, 87-128, 157-176; viii. 17-77, 102-301, 311-363; ix, 1-200, 222-262, 281-381, 383-449, 502-522; x. 134-162, 198-298). For an excellent discussion of Botello de Moraes see See Ruth Hill: Sceptres and Sciences in the Spains: four humanists and the new philosophy, pp. 191-244. Provenance: Ex Libris Jos M. Rodriguez MCMXXXVIII/ Bibliotheca Chizigonana on front pastedown. Boards soiled, hinges and small tears neatly repaired, owner's bookplate on front pastedown, corner chip to front endpaper, later inscription on verso of half-title, occassional browning, overall a very good copy.

        The Holy Bible, containing the Old and New Testaments:

      Oxford: printed by the University-Printers,, 1701. Newly Translated out of The Original Tongues: And With the former Translations dilligenty Compared and Revised. By His Majesty's Special Command. Appointed to be Read in Churches. Folio (495 × 310 mm). Contemporary red full morocco, spine elaborately gilt-tooled in compartments with seven gilt-rolled raised bands, sides panelled in gilt with french fillets, foliate rolls, tooling and cornerpieces, foliate gilt tool to board edges and turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Engraved overall frontispiece and engraved New Testament plate. Slight rubbing to bands, ends and corners, single wormhole to foot of spine,some expert refurbishment to ends and corners, a few very minor scratches and marks to covers, internally remarkably clean and fresh with only the faintest spotting to a few preliminaries. Excellent condition. First Lloyd edition, presentation copy from Gilbert Burnet, in a magnificent contemporary binding. William Lloyd (1627-1717), Bishop of Worcester, undertook this authorised revision of the King James Bible at the request of Convocation in 1699. This copy bears a superb contemporary presentation inscription from Gilbert Burnet (1643–1715), author of The History of the Reformation (1679), which Bishop Lloyd himself, supplying original sources, encouraged Burnet to write in rebuttal of Nicholas Sanders' Catholic-slanted history of the same, and which remained the major history of the Reformation for over a century. Lloyd and Burnet, pillars of the Church of England establishment, were both opponents of the Catholic tendencies of James II's reign, and after the Glorious Revolution, Burnet preached the coronation ceremony of William III in 1689, being then appointed Bishop of Salisbury. The presentation inscription in this marvellously bound copy is signed "Gi[lbert] Sarum" (Sarum being the old name for Salisbury), and reads: "This Bible was given by me to John Warner Junr, Son to Mr John Warner[,] Goldsmith, for whom I stood Godfather of his Baptisme, in hope that he will study in delight in these sacred writings and by so doing make good the vow that I took in his name, imitating the vertues of his worthy Father with whom I have had a long friendship, for whom I have a just and great esteem and to whom I owe particular acknowledgements for many signall favours received from him. At St Johns [Court, Clerkenwell, Burnet's home], 20th Dec, [170]8". The recipient's father was John Warner (?-1722) a wealthy London goldsmith who had three sons; John, Robert, and Richard. Both John Sr. and John Jr. were generously represented in Burnet's will (made in 1711). The third son Richard Warner (c.1713-1775) was a noted botanist (associated with Linnaeus), Shakespeare scholar (a friend of Garrick) and director of the East India Company. Richard Warner died unmarried, and the majority of his property, including a valuable literary and botanical library, passed to the only surviving heir of the Warner family, Jervoise Clark, widower of his niece Kitty, the only child of the middle brother Robert. John Warner Jr. must have either died in childhood, or similarly without issue, since this copy went the same way, becoming the family bible of the Clark-Jervoise baronets (Rev. Sir Samuel Clark Jervoise: 1770-1852, 1st baronet from 1813), as evinced by succeeding birth inscriptions of this family (earliest 1799, latest 1849) beneath Burnet's original presentation inscription and continuing to verso. Copies of the first William Lloyd edition of the King James Bible are scarce: OCLC lists 11 copies in libraries worldwide, and only 4 copies have appeared at auction in the last 20 years (the Wardington copy, in a Queen Anne binding, made £8,400 in 2006). Thus, from an already scarce edition, this copy, respectively edited and presented by two pillars of the Church of England establishment, in a magnificent contemporary binding, and with an illustrious later provenance, must be an extraordinarily desirable example.

        Schloß Nidern Aichbach

      Munich: Johann Lucas Straub, 1701-26. Hand-coloured engraving by Wening. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and minor foxing. 10 3/8 x 27 5/8 inches. 12 x 29 inches. A fascinating and very beautiful print from Wening's rare work on the castles and monasteries of Bavaria: 'Historico-topographica Descriptio' This image is from Wening's only major published work, a large-scale study of Bavarian towns, churches and mansions published in four volumes between 1701 and 1726. Wening, who was born in Nuremberg, moved to Munich in 1666 and was appointed court engraver in 1669. He applied to Maximilian Emanuel, Duke of Bavaria, for a privilege (i.e the right to publish) for his proposed visual record of the four districts of Bavaria. It was granted, and Wening began to make his drawings in November 1696. By January 1697 he had completed 131 drawings. Evidently, he did not always receive the welcome he thought his due from the Bavarian noblemen whose castles he was drawing, but this only seems to have served to inspire him to make his engravings even more spectacular in order to prove his worth as an artist to his doubtful hosts. The present image has a lively immediacy that is very attractive and often lacking in the work of Wening's contemporaries.

Apart from a few browned leaves, a fine and clean copy. Title-page printed in red and black and with a large engraved allegorical vignette. Large allegorical vignette to dedication. 102 lovely engravings of coins in the text. (20), 218 pp. Engraved book-plate to inside of front board: "Sir Francis L.H. Goodricke Bart." (19th cent.) and to inside of back board: Andrew M. Sherling" as well as gift-inscription (from Edmund Caldwell, to St. Michaelis Convent) to front free end-paper: "Monasteris St. Michaelis/ D.D./ Don. Edmundus Caldwell O.S.B./ a.d. 1871". Early inscription to title-page.. Scarce first edition of this standard work, one of the most important histories of the Egyptian Kingdom of the Ptolemies (323 B.C. to 30 B.C.), considered one of the most influential works on this complicated and perplexed part of ancient history. The work quickly became the main reference-work on the subject. It is especially noteworthy in its inclusion of Ptolemaeic coinage and is one of the first modern histories of the Ptolemies to not merely treat the subject chronologically; it is the first to explain this period by help of coins. The Ptolemaic Kingdom was a Hellenistic kingdom in Egypt. It was ruled by the Ptolemaic dynasty that Ptolemy I Soter founded after the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BC-which ended with the death of Cleopatra VII and the Roman conquest in 30 BC. The Ptolemies were the Greek Rulers in Egypt after the death of Alexander the Great.The vast empire that Alexander the Great had conquered, was too big for one successor. One general was entrusted with Macedonia, another Thrace, and a third Syria. Ptolemy I Soter, one of Alexander's favorite generals, was made governor of Egypt. Alexandria, the capital city, quickly became a center of Greek culture and trade. For more than 350 years the Ptolemies ruled Egypt. Ptolemy's son Ptolemy Philadelpus ruled after Alexander's general. It was Ptolemy Phladelphus who made the library at Alexandria the best in the world. With the death of Cleopatra, probably the most famous of the Ptolemies, the dynasty of the Ptolemies came to an end and Egypt became part of the Roman Empire

        The Works of Mr. John Dryden. The Fourth Volume. Being his translation of Virgil's Pastorals, Georgics, and Aeneis ; adorn'd with a hundred Sculptures (Illustrated By Wenceslaus Hollar)

      London: Jacob Tonson, 1701. THIRD EDITION. Volume four of a four volume set. Full gilt calf from the late 18th century. Spine expertly relaid. Seven raised bands and compartmented with tooled designs on spine. Gilt lettering and gilt detalling. All edges marbled. Title pages in red and black. Title pages is a cancel. So, even though it says third edition, the text and illustrations are from the 2nd edition. Nice bright copy but with some age-toning to the text. Plates are bright and unfoxed. 690 pages. Frontispiece, 9 plates in the "Pastorals", 19 plates in the "Georgics", and 71 plates in the "Aeneis". Size of paper 13 inches by 8.5 inches. Many of these plates were engraved by Wenceslaus Hollar. See Macdonald 108. Overall in VERY GOOD condition. WENCESLAUS HOLLAR (known as Wenzel Hollar in Germany), was a Bohemian etcher, who lived in England for much of his life. He was born in Prague, and died in London, being buried at St Margaret's Church, Westminster. Hollar produced a variety of works; his plates number nearly 3000, and include views, portraits, ships, religious subjects, heraldic subjects, landscapes, and still life in many different forms. His architectural drawings, such as those of Antwerp and Strassburg cathedrals, and his views of towns, are to scale, but are intended as pictures as well.

        AN ESSAY ON MIRACLES IN TWO DISCOURSES

      London: Printed for Charles Harper ... , 1701.. [16],277,[3]pp. Octavo. Contemporary red goat skin, raised bands, gilt label, compartments decorated in gilt, covers with elaborately ornamented panels with corner devices and floral roll within the inner panel, within triple rule border, gilt inner dentelles, a.e.g., likely by Robert Steel. Upper joint slightly tender, very shallow loss at crown of spine, upper cover shows some irregular dark discolorations, binder's blanks darkened, textblock very bright, crisp and fresh. First edition. The binding was attributed by the former owner to Robert Steel, who apprenticed to Samuel Mearne, and indeed, the floral roll matches that used on other bindings attributed to him (see Maggs 1212:70, for example, on a binding made for Queen Anne). Fleetwood, at the time of this publication, was Fellow of Eton-College and Chaplain in Ordinary to William III. The text was assembled to be delivered as the Boyle Lecture, which Fleetwood had been unable to deliver due to illness. In 1707, he published the more widely known work of economic analysis, CHRONICON PRECIOSUM .... To all appearances, this would qualify as a large, fine paper copy (200 x 120 mm) were it not for the fact that the dimensions seem common to decent copies of the entire edition. ESTC T83611.

        COMEDIES, TRAGEDIES, AND OPERAS WRITTEN BY JOHN DRYDEN, ESQ

      1701. Very Good. DRYDEN, John. THE COMEDIES, TRAGEDIES, AND OPERAS WRITTEN BY JOHN DRYDEN, ESQ; Now first collected together, and Corrected from the Originals. In Two Volumes. London: Printed for Jacob Tonson, at Gray's-Inn-Gate in Gray's-Inn-Lane; Thomas Bennet, at the Half-Moon; and Richard Wellington, at the Lute in St. Paul's Church-Yard, 1701. The first folio edition of Dryden's plays, as well as the first to attempt a complete collection with accurate texts. Earlier collected editions of Dryden's plays were just that, collections of quarto editions bound together with a general title- page, the contents of which vary according to what editions were available when the sets were made up. Two folio volumes, 34 x 21 cm: [ ]2, A-2S4, 2X- 4I4,4K1; [ ]2, B-2Q4, R2, 2M-4B4. Pp. [6], 326, 337-618 (i.e. 608); [4], 308, 261-558 (i.e. 604). Titles pages printed in red and black. Text is complete despite the breaks in signatures and many errors in pagination, which are a result of the book having been given out to different printers according to Macdonald. Text is mostly quite clean but for some occasional light foxing and, in Volume 2, some browned signatures, with a few minor instances of nicked corners or closed tears in margins as well. Folding frontispiece portrait Dryden in Volume 1. 38 x 29 cm. Engraved by Edelinck after after Godfrey Kneller, it is trimmed close to the image on the left and bottom margins, and folded to fit in the volume. There is a 17.8 cm closed tear that begins at the bottom edge of the stub that anchors the plate in the volume and enters the plate, but with an old and very good repair that does not call attention to it. Bound in eighteenth- century calf boards, rebacked, with parts of the original spines laid-down and with modern, black morocco, gilt-lettered labels. Boards show a bit of wear and some surface abrading. Armorial bookplate of "William Pole of Bally-Finn Esqr" on front pastedown of each volume. (Macdonald 107 a i).

        A new map of the Terraqueous Globe According to the Latest DiscoveriesÖ

      Oxford,: Edward Wells, 1701.. Handcoloured copper engraving, 425 x 530 mm. (sheet size), some mild browning yet very good. A striking early eighteenth-century English double-hemisphere map with a splendid ornamental border featuring New World Indian archers, Ptolemaic geographers, classical figures and a Celtic warrior enjoying the verdant parklands outside Oxford, with the University visible in the distance. The handcolouring of both the map and ornaments, including the ornamental figures and celestial details, is bright and fresh.The map is from Edward Wells' popular atlas A Treatise of Antient and Present Geography (1700-1). This is a particularly interesting English-published map for its date as the Australian coast is evidently based on the famous seventeenth-century Thevenot map first published in 1663, with the coastline based primarily on the voyages of Tasman, as well as the other Dutch expeditions to the northwest; as with the Thevenot map New Guinea is attached to Cape York. Hence the Wells map is an important forerunner to the later English map of the region published in John Harris' Navigantium atque Itinerantium Bibliotheca (1744). It is interesting to note that despite its date, no explicit mention is made of Dampier.Shirley comments that Wells' atlas was very popular, running into five editions by 1738. It was resurrected in the nineteenth-century with a profusion of editions published up until 1852. Wells was an English divine who taught at Christ Church in Oxford, hence the delightful combination of exotic and parochial elements in the lavish decoration of this arresting map.Shirley 'Maps in the Atlases of the British Library', 1032.

      London: Printed for A. Bell, at the Cross-Keys and Bible in Cornhill, near Stocks-Market, 1701. First English language edition. Two volumes, bound as one in contemporary full calf. Octavo (pages 194 x 124mm) collating: Title, Table of Dialogues, 328; Title, 3-336; complete. Rebacked with most of the original spine and label retained. First title page extended at the inner margin, p. 2 with a few passages marked in pencil, otherwise a Very Good copy. & & Translated into English and abridged by Joseph Stennett. Two Dialogues: "The Apology of Socrates" and "Phaedo," had previously been translated into English by William Charleton and published in 1675, but the others: "Alcibiades 1 & 2", "Theages," "Euryphron," "Criton," "Laches," "Protagoras" and "The Rivals" are printed in English for the first time. With 22 copies held in institutions worldwide (OCLC), our assumption is that most were placed early on because only one copy shows in the auction records of ABPC and Americana Exchange.& & "Amidst a great diversity, both of subject and treatment, the dialogues are pervaded by two dominant impulses: a love of truth and a passion for human improvement. While nowhere is a definite system laid down, it has been truly said that the germs of all ideas can be found in Plato." ("Printing and the Mind of Man" # 27, for the 1484 Latin edition) & & Lowndes p. 1877.

      Paris: Chez l'Auteur Sur le Quai de l'Horloge, 1701. Engraved Simmoneau with period outline colour. Minor soiling and discolouration in top margin and top of centerfold of the map. Skilfully repaired tears at the top of the centerfold, otherwise good condition. 18 1/2 x 23 1/4 inches. 20 1/2 x 26 3/4 inches. This handsome, topographical map of Spain and Portugal is from Atlas de Géographie, De l'Isle's great atlas. Guillaume de l'Isle (1675-1726) was son of a cartographer and a pupil of Jean Dominique Cassini, who among other important contributions, aligned the study of astronomy to the study of geography. Under Cassini's direction, observations were made from locations all over the world that enabled longitudinal calculations to be made with much greater accuracy. De l'Isle carried on this exacting work with remarkable dedication and integrity, constantly revising and improving his maps. While precision was his primary goal, his maps are invariably elegant and attractive. He was probably the most influential mapmaker of the 18th century. Koeman, C & M 7, #66
