Amsterdam, August 25 1704. 3 work in 1 volume. 4to. Contemporary half calf, repairs to the spine.

      Bierens de Haan 2784-2786; Cat. NHSM, p. 329; cf. v.d. Aa IV, p. 162. Rare and interesting work on dyke construction, illustrating the continuing battle of the Dutch against the sea. On April 5 1702, the dyke between Amsterdam and Muiden was breached (see plate 1). The Amsterdam advocate Nicolaas Listingh designed a new construction for the dyke to prevent the sand being washed away by the pounding of the waves. Listingh proposed the construction of partitions that were placed in oblique angles. Each partition consisted of a row of piles driven into the ground. The oblique corners would break the battering of the waves and prevent erosion. Among the 6 engravings in the first work is a view on Muiden by Stoopendael from De Zegepraalende Vecht . In the second work, Listingh describes another device, a so-called "sea forcer," aimed to break the waves before they hit the dyke. The large folding plate (59 x 49 cm), depicting this construction, is engraved by Stoopendael. Listingh defends his construction on the grounds that it is cheaper and more effective than the other proposals. The final four pages contain a letter by Listingh on dyke construction. Bookplates with text "Majorat Meuselwitz" on inside front cover; some browning and staining; plates 1,4,5 with minor tears on folds where they are attached to book with some restorations.

(Kyd does not seem to have been aware of these earlier books.) The anonymous author mentions Sheppard's book but dismisses it, claiming that it "extends not to the fortieth part of the matters relating to Corporations (v). He is correct; his book is much more extensive than Sheppard's and is more an analytical treatise than a handbook. This was clearly the author's ambition: "I have not only shewed the nature of Corporations, and by what words erected, but the several sorts thereof. And t. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Pia Desideria: or, Divine Addresses, in Three Books

      London: Henry Bonwicke, 1702. Third edition thus of the most popular religious emblem book of the seventeenth century, first published in Latin in 1624, and in Arwaker's English translation in 1686. Pia Desideria features a sequence of Biblical verses drawn primarily from the Book of Job, the Song of Solomon, and the Psalms: each verse is illustrated with a full-page copper engraving, and accompanied by a brief poem by the Jesuit father Herman Hugo. In their iconography, the emblems follow the "Amor and Anima" tradition, in which the figures of a young boy and girl symbolize the relationship of Divine Love to the Human Soul: he appears before her with a lantern in the night, teaches her to walk, springs her from a cage. A near-fine copy of a classic emblem book, with female provenance, in a beautiful contemporary English binding. Octavo: [10], 238, [2]. Contemporary full red morocco, boards paneled and decorated in gilt, raised bands, spine compartments elaborately lettered and tooled in gilt, all edges gilt. Engraved and letterpress title pages, forty-six full-page engravings throughout text, two pages of advertisements. Ink ownership signature of Catherine Phipps dated 1709 on front free endpaper; her later signature, as Catherine Ingoldsby, on letterpress title. Three armorial bookplates to front endpapers. Light rubbing to joints, small spot to base of upper board, faint tidemark to foreedge of text block.

        Instrumentall Musick Performed before his Maj.ty on New years day 1702. Composed by John Lenton Composer to his Maj.ty.

      [London, 1702]. - Oblong 8vo. Musical manuscript in English, on paper written in a single cursive hand in brown ink, four staves to a page. 12 leaves: blank, title, dedication, 10 pp. of music on 6 leaves, 3 blanks. Dedication to Princess Anne on second recto. In a contemporary morocco binding, exuberantly tooled and gilt by Robert Steel, arguably the finest binder in England at the time; board edges gilt, marbled endleaves, all edges gilt. An exquisite manuscript musical part book, composed and bound for royal presentation on New Years' Day (then celebrated on Lady Day, March 25). Inscribed to Princess Anne of Denmark, soon to be Queen Anne of England. The pieces are labelled "Overture" and "Hornpipe", with one passage indicated "very slow". Signed "J.L." at the end. - The violinist, singer and composer Lenton joined the ensemble of royal musicians, known as the King's Musick, in 1681 under Charles II and played at the coronations of James II and of William and Mary (cf. New Grove X, 665). As violinist, Lenton accompanied William to Holland in 1691 and contributed to the royal musical repertoire. He wrote incidental music for some dozen plays between 1682 and 1705 and accumulated the offices of Gentleman Extraordinary at the Royal Chapel (1685) and Groom of the Vestry (1708). The binder Robert Steel (fl. 1668-1711) apprenticed with Samuel Mearne and took possession of his tools after his death in 1686. In turn, one of Steel's workmen, Thomas Elliott, secured Mearne's tools and became a principal binder for the Harleian Library. - In fine condition: the splendid binding shows a repeated flower-and-foliage tool flanked by rules forming the outer frame; the panels have a pot at the left and the right from which spread vines with fine small leaves; flame-tipped volutes in the corners and around the open strapwork central medallion from which extend rule hearts flanked by dots; daisies and foliage cover the spine. For the binding cf. Maggs Bros., Bookbinding in the British Isles Catalogue 1075 (1987), no. 118 (the outer frame tool, there called a roll) and Catalogue 1212 (1996), nos. 69 (leaves on the spine) & 70 (frame tool), as well as Foot, The Henry Davis Gift II, no. 148.

        Magnalia Christi Americana: or, the Ecclesiastical History of New-England, from its First Printing in the Year 1620. unto the Year of our Lord, 1698. In Seven Books.

      Folio. London: Thomas Parkhurst, MDCCII [1702]. Folio, seven parts in one, [30], 38; [2], 75; [2], 238; [2], 125-222; [2], 100; [2], 88; [2], 118, Errata, [2] pp. (p.86 of Book VI misnumbered 98), double-page map, blank leaf at 6m2. Contemporary full-calf, rebacked, five raised bands with gilt decoration and title label, speckled red edges. Some minor foxing mostly to outer margins and endpapers, otherwise very good. Two ink signatures to recto of first flyleaf: "Wm. Dent Book 1763," and "Henry Hoyle's 1809." Bookplate of "L. F. Butler" to upper pastedown. First edition, without ads, with the original map rather than the more common facsimile noted by Sabin. Cotton Mather (1663-1728) was a New England Puritan minister, prolific author, and pamphleteer who wrote over 450 books and pamphlets, making him one of the most influential religious leaders in colonial America. The most important and greatest of his published works is the Magnalia Christi Americana... originally published in England because no American printer could take on such a large project. The seven books are comprised of an early history of New England, short sketches of the lives of governors and ministers, the history of Harvard, Puritan modes of worship, instances of "Illustrious, Wonderful Providences" in New England, accounts of various afflictions visited on New England, the Salem witch trials in which he played a pivotal role, the escape of Hannah Duston, and also a wealth of puns, poems, sermons, and anagrams. While not entirely historically accurate, Magnalia Christi Americana... provides a garrulous overview of the state of society and manners in New England during the early colonial period. Sabin 46392.

        Insularum Danicarum ut Zee-Landiae, Fioniae Langelandiae, Lalandiae Falstriae, Fembriae, Monae aliarumque in Mari Balthico Sitar

      Pierre Mortier, Paris - Map. Copper plate engraving with original hand color. Image measures 19 1/4" x 23". c.1702. This highly decorative map notes Denmark's main islands include Zealand, Funen or Fyn and Lolland as well as the eastern coast of Jutland. Beautifully detailed, it notes cities, towns, villages, fortresses, and incredibly rendered topography. Coastal features including shoals and banks are also noted. A charming title cartouche features merfolk holding up the royal coat of arms and frolicking in the water. This map, originally created by De Wit, was issued by Pierre Mortier in circa 1702. The map is in good condition with minor wear along the centerfold. Lower margin near centerfold shows minor water stains, not affecting printed image. Minor foxing at places. Frederick de Wit (1629/30--1706) was one of the foremost cartographers and map sellers of the Dutch Golden Age. Based in Amsterdam, he began with a small printing shop in 1654 and soon became internationally known for his city plans and wall maps of the world. By 1671, he was producing large folio atlases for both his shop and individual patrons that could contain anywhere between 15 and 150 maps. Today, these atlases grace the collections of many museums and institutions as evidence of the vibrant cartographic trade in Amsterdam in the middle- and late-17th century. Pierre Mortier (1661-1711) was a Dutch cartographer, engraver, and printseller who worked in Amsterdam. He used advanced Dutch printing methods to produce high quality editions of contemporary French maps by cartographers such as De L'Isle, Sanson, Jaillot, de Fer and De Wit. His greatest feat was the nautical atlas "Le Neptune Francois." This map is a resplendent example of his work.

The engraved frontispiece missing (supplied in facsimile from the reprint of the book). The 2 last leaves repaired in inner margins (no loss of text). The first four leaves re-enforced at inner hinge and loosening from block. Some scattered brownspots and marginal browning. Exceedingly rare first edition of the first Swedish book on America and one of the main sources to the history of Pennsylvania. "A very scarce work relating to the establishment of the Swedes in New Sweden, afterwards Pennsylvania." (Sabin). The work is of the utmost importance to the history of this part of America and, as importantly, it also contains the only printed source to the now distinct native American language of the Susquehannocks as well the first systematic weather observations in the American Colonies.Susquehannock is a part of the Iroquoian language family and what little of it that has been preserved, is found in the present work, taking up the last part of it. The vocabulary was compiled by Holm's grandfather, the Swedish missionary Johannes Campanius, during the 1640'ies and published here for the first time by Holm, with additions, in 1702. The vocabulary consists of about 100 words, and as the only preserved source of this native American language, it is of paramount importance. The number of words listed, although limited to ab. 100, has been sufficient to show that Susquehannock was a northern Iroquoian language closely related to those of the Five Nations. Surviving remnants of the Susquehannock language include the river names Conestoga, Juniata, and Swatara.Johannes Campanius was also the first person known to have taken systematic weather observations in the American Colonies. He is thus considered "the first weatherman in America" and is still remembered for his groundbreaking observations that are published here for the first time. He kept a daily record of the weather at New Sweden, including at least 1644 and 1645. These highly important observations take up Chapter 3 (pp. 46-52) of the present work which thus constitute the first publication of the first systematic weather observations in the American Colonies. The prestigious "John Campanius Holm Award" is still awarded annually to honor cooperative observers for outstanding accomplishments in the field of meteorological observations. Much of the material in the present work is based upon Johannes Campanius's never published journals, which his grandson, Holm, studied intensely and published the most important parts of. Part of this material includes his studies on the traditions of the natives, the recording - and publication in the present work - of which helped to preserve some anthropological information, which would have otherwise been lost. These foundational studies also helped perpetrate the idea that the Native Americans were descendants of the lost tribes of Israel.New Sweden (Nya Swerige) was a Swedish colony along the lower reaches of Delaware River in North America from 1638 to 1655 in the present-day American Mid-Atlantic states of Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Fort Christina, now in Wilmington, Delaware, was the first settlement. In this settlement, both Holm's father and grandfather had lived, and part of Holm's account of is based on written sources, letters and notes left by his grandfather and on verbal accounts received from his father. To that he added facts obtained from the manuscripts of Peter Lindström, which had never been published (and remained unpublished until 1923). Peter Lindström was and engineer and cartographer in the colony. Many of the maps and illustrations in the present work are based on Lindström's original drawings, which are thus published here for the first time, preserving them for posterity. Lindström's great map of New Sweden was destroyed in a fire in 1697 and is now preserved because Holm reproduced it before it vanished. The famous illustration of the Indians also comes from Lindström. Part IV is also particularly interesting in that it contains (own translation from Swedish:) "A Dictionary and Conversation-Book in the language of the Americans at New Sweden, or as it is now called Pennsylvania", which consists in glossaries of words and phrases relating to religion, parts of the body, clothing, weather, animals and plants, numbers, and useful conversational phrases, as well as the very interesting "Discourses which took place at a council held by the Indians in 1645, on the subject of the Swedes and of New Sweden, in which their sachem or king, first speaks with his son, about calling the nation together". As is evident, the work is extremely important in several respects. Not only does it preserve for posterity facts about so many aspects of native American language, life, customs etc. which would otherwise have been lost, it also uniquely describes the weather, geography and topology of the areas dealt with. "It is curious to see the now famous cities of Philadelphia and New York, described as "clever little towns", as they were in fact at that time. The political history of the country, from the first settlement of the Swedes to the arrival of William Penn, and for some time afterwards, is not the less replete with interest for the present inhabitants of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware, as well as that of the habits, manners, and customs of the Swedes and the Dutchmen, who inhabited this country before us. Nothing can be more truly moving, than the account given of those patriarchal times by the venerable pastor Erick Biörk, in his letters to his friends in Sweden, of which extracts are contained in the 10th chapter of the second book of this work. It is pleasing, also, to see, described by a foreigner, the happiness of this people, under the government of our illustrious founder. The vocabulary and dialogues in the Indian language, which are contained in the fourth book, will also be found interesting to philologists.These, we believe, are the reasons that induced the Historical Society of Pennsylvania to cause this work to be translated, and to undertake its publication. It cannot but be well received by those who take an interest in the early history of our country, of which the most correct accounts are to be obtained from those by whom it was first settled." (Translator's Preface to the English translation, 1834). This fundamental work was translated into English in 1834 and again in 1975. Sabin: 10202________________________________________________________________The Susquehannock people, also called the Conestoga were the Iroquoian-speaking Native Americans who lived in areas adjacent to the Susquehanna River and its tributaries ranging from its upper reaches in the southern part of what is now New York (near the lands of the Five Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy), through eastern and central Pennsylvania West of the Poconos and the upper Delaware River (and the Delaware nations), with lands extending beyond the mouth of the Susquehanna in Maryland along the west bank of the Potomac at the north end of the Chesapeake Bay. Evidence of their habitation has also been found in northern West Virginia and portions of southwestern Pennsylvania, which could be reached via the gaps of the Allegheny or several counties to the south, via the Cumberland Narrows pass which held the Nemacolin Trail. Both passes abutted their range and could be reached through connecting valleys from the West Branch Susquehanna and their large settlement at Conestoga, Pennsylvania.
