        Pedro. Arte de la Lengua Moxa, con su Vocabulario, y Cathecismo [bound with] Cathecismo menor en Lengua Española, y Moxa

      The first edition of the first work on the language of the Moxos, and the only one for 200 years; printed in Lima. N.d. [1702]. Lima. Joseph de Contreras. In 12mo (147 m x 92 mm). 16 + 664; 202 + 1. Slightly later Spanish or South American mottled calf, gilt-stamped spine, red gilt morocco label, gently worn. Ownership signature on verso of title page, internally bright and clean copy, last folio slightly soiled. First edition. Marban?s is a very rare and singularly important vocabulary of the Moxos language, the first of its kind and the only for almost two centuries. The catechism, present herein, is usually lacking. The Arte is notable both as an important linguistic piece and an early South American imprint. "The language of the nation of the province of 'los Moxos,' in Bolivia, South America. Their language is related to the Maipure. This is the only work on the subject" (Sabin). ?Hasta hace poco este era el unico libro impreso referente a la lengua de los moxos? (Medina). The book is undated, Sabin records the date as 1701, while Medina believes it to be 1702; quite possibly, Medina is more accurate. A manuscript note on the front free endpaper of the present copy indicates it was purchased by the noted London firm, Bernard Quaritch, Ltd., in 1918, while a stamp on the front pastedown gives evidence it was later sold by the American Antiquarian Society. ?Como hermano en la Compañía llego a Sevilla en 1671 desde el Colegio de esa ciudad, a fin de embarcarse para Indias en la misión que conducía a Chile el P. Lorenzo Arizabalo. Destinosele luego de su llegada al Colegio de S. Pablo de Lima, mas tarde a las misiones de Juli, y últimamente a la de los Mojos? (Medina). OCLC locates only two copies. Palau, 150837 & 150838 (giving them as separate works). Medina, Lima, 712. Sabin, 44465. OCLC 44821383.

After leading the Jewish armies against Rome, Josephus was captured and detained as a translator for Vespasian and Titus, eventually earning his freedom and becoming a Roman citizen.

      Printed: 1702. 1663-1704 Octavo, 4.25 X 7 inches . First Edition A-R8, S4 (A34, Q4 incorrectly signed A4, A3, Y4, respectively) This copy is bound in ins original bords which have been nicly rebacked. This wonderfully amusing compilation is by the Grub Street writer Tom Brown, whose " favourite artifice was to indite letters from the dead to the living, an artifice which gave him the chance to ridicule "Tom" D'Urfey, "Joe" Harris the player, and even the great Dryden himself. The death of "the gallant Dundee" inspired him to imitate Cowley's pindarics, though, as he said himself, he was ill acquainted with that kind of writing, He suffered at once from excessive praise and ill-deserved blame. " In his apocryphal letter " From "Joseph HARRIS TO A FRIEND AT WILL'S COFFEE-HOUSE" He discusses in a sustained , all be it gilb, way the literary climate in the coffee houses including a discussion of Aphra Behn's philosophy of the 'fair sex' and " that man and women wewe in a dark blind cavern by themselves? "... Behn's position is further contrasted with that of Christina of Sweden, whose Letter "to the Women" appears in this volume. Letters from the Dead to the Living: The Virgin's [Mrs. Bracegirdle] Answer to Mrs. Behn. 'You upbraid me with a great discovery you chanc'd to make by peeping into the breast of an old friend of mine; if you give yourself but the trouble of examining an old poet's conscience, who went lately off the stage, and now takes up his lodgings in your territories, and I don't question but you'll there find Mrs. Behn writ as often in black characters, and stand as thick in some places, as the names of the generation of Adam in the first of Genesis.' How far credence may be given to anything of Brown's is of course a moot point, but the above passage and much that follows would be witless and dull unless there were some real suggestion of scandal. Moreover, it cannot here be applied to Hoyle, whereas it very well fits Ravenscroft. This letter which speaks of 'the lash of Mr. C-r' must have been written no great time after the publication of Jeremy Collier's A Short View of the Immorality of the English Stage (March, 1698), probably in 1701-2. Ravenscroft's last play, The Italian Husband, was produced at Lincoln's Inn Fields in 1697 and he is supposed to have died a year or two later, which date exactly suits the detail given by Brown. Ravenscroft's first play, Mamamouchi, had been produced in 1672, and the 'an old poet' would be understood.

        Magnalia Christi Americana: or, the Ecclesiastical History of New-England, from its first planting in the year 1620. unto the year of our lord, 1698. In seven books

      London: printed for Thomas Parkhurst, 1702. Folio. (12 1/4 x 7 7/8 inches). Double-page engraved map of New England and New York. Without errata leaves as usual. Expertly bound to style in 18th-century speckled calf, spine gilt in six compartments with raised bands, maroon morocco lettering-piece in the second compartment, the others with overall repeat decoration in gilt. A first edition of the greatest history of New England: a landmark in colonial New England history, The first edition of what Howes calls the "most famous 18th century American book" and one which Streeter describes as, who describes as "the most famous American book of colonial times." Mather's opus is rightly considered an indispensable source for the history of New England in the 17th century, both for its biographies and its history of civil, religious, and military affairs. The seven books include 1) the history and settlement of New England; 2) the lives of its governors and magistrates; 3) biographies of "Sixty Famous Divines"; 4) a history and roll of Harvard College; 5) a history of the Congregational Church in New England; 6) a record of the remarkable providences revealing God's direct influence in particular events in the colonies; and 7) the "War of the Lord" dealing with the devil, the Separatists, Familists, Antinomians, Quakers, clerical imposters and the Indians. Much of the book's value rests in its incomparable wealth of detail regarding daily life in early colonial New England. David Hall has referred to it as "a mirror of the 1690's," the decade in which most of it was written. Far from being a dull chronicle of events, the Magnalia is full of lively biographical pieces, vivid descriptions of the times, and many surprising sidelights. It has been mined by all modern scholars of social history for its unsurpassed view of New England at the end of the 17th century. The map, known as the "Mather map" is actually titled An Exact Mapp of New England and New York . The first eighteenth-century general map of New England, it depicts an area from Casco Bay, west to the Hudson then south to Manhattan and north west past Long Island to Martha's Vineyard and Cape Cod, before heading north again past Boston to Casco Bay. The information concerning the early roads is particularly valuable, and the early versions of the spelling of the towns and rivers cast a fascinating light on the early topographic nomenclature of colonial America.

Browne was educated at Lincoln College, Oxford, and in1694 transferred to Jesus College, Cambridge, where he graduated MB in 1695. It is not known which university awarded him a medical doctorate. Browne practiced as a physician, and was an industrious writer, whose effrontery is discernible through an obscure and rambling style. The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography notes that, Early in his career he damaged his credibility by lecturing and writing against Harvey's theory of the circulation of the blood. Browne is noted in the annals of the Royal College of Physicians as a notorious quack -ODNB. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. The title page andprelims are missing.

Contemporary calf rebacked with five raised bands on spine and spine lable bearing gilt titles, boards with gilt ruled borders and large gilt armorial to centre of both boards, boards recornered, gilt dentelles, aeg, marbled endpapers with bookplate on both front pastedown and ffep, engraved portrait of Bacon pasted to blank facing title page, internally clean and bright with good wide margins, short closed tear to foredge margin of leaves I4 & L4 not touching text. Lacks the dedication leaf which was canceled due to the death of William III before the publication of this work but does have the final errata and advertisement leaf. This copy from the small paper issue; ESTC N476823., Although best remembered for his contribution to 'natural philosophy', Francis Bacon (1561-1626) was an English statesman and philosopher, who served as both Solicitor General and Lord Chancellor. When James I ascended to the English crown in 1603 Bacon had already served as a Member of Parliament and as 'learned counsel' to Queen Elizabeth I. He prepared for the arrival of the new monarch with the publication of 'A Brief Discourse Touching the Happy Union of the Kingdoms of England and Scotland,' a tract supportive of James' desire to unite the two Kingdoms. Bacon was made Solicitor General in 1607 and thereafter was at or near the heart of James' administration, although high office was risky in a Jacobean administration and Bacon would be impeached in 1621 and spend time as a prisoner in The Tower. , Small 4to 9" - 11" tall, [8] lxx [2] 302 [2] pp .

        A Voyage to the Levant: or, travels in the principal parts of Asia Minor, the islands of Scio, Rhodes, Cyprus, &c. with an account of the most considerable cities of Egypt, Syria and the Holy Land ... Done into English, by W.J

      London: printed for Jacob Tonson and Thomas Bennet, 1702. Folio. (13 3/16 x 8 1/2 inches). Engraved emblematic frontispiece, portrait of the author, 1 folding map, 96 plates (25 double-page, 17 folding), numerous illustrations. (Minor dampstaining extending from the top gutter margin, minor toning to plates). Expertly bound to style in contemporary calf, covers with a gilt ruled border, spine with raised bands in six compartments, morocco lettering piece in the second compartment, the others with a repeat overall decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers. First edition in English of this important illustrated account of travels in Turkey, the Holy Land and Egypt. In his first expedition of 1674, Dutch traveller Cornelius Le Bruyn remained in the Levant for seven years, travelling principally in Asia Minor, Syria, the Holy Land and Egypt. On his return, he published his Voyages au Levant in Dutch in 1698, in French in 1700 and in English (as here) in 1702. The text is made up of a mixture first-hand observations and information drawn from other sources, but the impressive images are all by the talented Le Bruyn: "The principal aim M. Bruyn had in publishing this work, was to give the world exact designs or draughts of the cities, places and edifices, which he met with on his travels; and herein he is very accurate, having drawn all his prospects upon the very place where he was" (Preface). The magnificent plates are among the best representations of the area from the late 17th century and include large-scale views of Smyrna, Alexandria, Rhodes, Bethlehem, Constantinople, Aleppo, Palmyra, and elsewhere. Le Bruyn's depictions of Jerusalem and the pyramids of Egypt are particularly notable, being among the earliest images of these celebrated locations to be widely disseminated. The success of the published account of this expedition engendered a second expedition by Le Bruyn across Russia and Persia and to India and Java between 1701 and 1707.

        Kort Beskrifning om Provincien Nya Swerige uti America, som nu förtjden af the Engeslke kallas Pensylvania

      Stockholm: Tryckt uti Kongl. boktr. hos Sal. Wankijfs änkia med egen bekostnad af J. H. Werner, 1702. 4to (188 x 145 mm).[16], 190, [1] pp. Additional engraved title, letterpress title printed in red and black and with woodcut printer's device, 2 engraved plates and 4 engraved maps (one fold-out), woodcut text illustrations, woodcut head- and tailpieces and fraktur initials. Errata leaf at end. (Nova Suecia map with small repair at fold, f. b4 with lower blank fore-corner restored, small stain to Q4, some discoloration intrinsic to paper throughout.) Contemporary Swedish(?) sprinkled calf over pasteboard, spine tooled in blind (extremities worn, joints split, front free endpaper clipped at top); morocco two-part pull-off case. Provenance: 18th-century ms. shelfmark on front pastedown, "D-f21"; from the library of Frank T. Siebert, noted American Indian collector (purchased from Lathrop Harper in 1945). First edition of the first and best printed account of New Sweden, the earliest colonial settlement in the Delaware River valley (covering parts of present-day Delaware, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey), established in 1638 at Fort Cristina, now Wilmington. The book contains valuable primary historical source material: Holm, who never traveled to America, based his account on notes left by his grandfather Johannes Campanius, chaplain of the Swedish colony from 1643 to 1648, on verbal accounts by his father, and on the relations of the engineer Peter Mårtensson Lindeström (or Linström) and other settlers. His narration of the capture of the territory by the Dutch in 1655 and subsequent life of the Swedes under the Quaker rule of William Penn was also taken from contemporary sources, mainly settlers' correspondence. Parts 3 and 4 of the four parts are devoted to the culture and language of the local Native American tribes; and the Addenda contain a vocabulary of the Delaware language (comparing it to Hebrew), compiled by the author's grandfather. The book is a mine of information, containing, for example, the earliest continuous meteorological observations in North America, recorded by Johannes Campanius in 1644 and 1645, and an account of the first Finnish colony in North America, at Upland (later Chester, PA), which included the village "Finland". The illustrations are of comparable historical value. Engraved by Holm himself, the four maps include a map of the Americas; a small map of the settlement, showing the Delaware River including Philadelphia, after Visscher; another, larger map of the settlement, after Lindeström, titled "New Sweden called today Pensylvania," showing the region claimed by the colony along the Delaware River, and constituting "the first detailed delineation of both banks of the river from Capes May and Henlopen to what is now Trenton" (Quarter of a Millenium, p. 48); and the Eastern seaboard from New France to Virginia and west to Lake Ontario. Both maps of the colony provide numerous, largely Indian place names. The engraved illustrations include a view of Niagara Falls and a family of Lenni Lenapi Indians (after drawings by Lindeström), faithfully depicted with wampum, ornaments and pipes; the engraved title shows an Indian village with its inhabitants happily trading with European settlers, contrasted with two tribal armies battling in the background (though possibly intended as a generic trading scene, this engraving has been variously interpreted to depict Penn's treaty with the Indians, or John Moll's purchase in 1680 of the territory of present-day New Castle County: cf. Snyder, City of Independence, Views of Philadelphia before 1800, pp. 267-8). Woodcut text illustrations include an archaic full-page map of the Pacific including California, Tartary, and Japan, with the "Terre de Iesso," the Jesuit name for Hokkaido, greatly enlarged (a common exaggeration of the discoveries of de Vries); a battle plan of the attack of the Dutch on Fort Christina in 1655, possibly the earliest published American battle plan, and cuts of Fort Casimir (established in 1651 by Peter Stuyvesant.

        Arte de la Lengua Moxa, con su Vocabulario, y Cathecismo [bound with] Cathecismo menor en Lengua Española, y Moxa

      The first edition of the first work on the language of the Moxos, and the only one for 200 years; printed in Lima. N.d. [1702]. Lima. Joseph de Contreras. In 12mo (147 m x 92 mm). 16 + 664; 202 + 1. Slightly later Spanish or South American mottled calf, gilt-stamped spine, red gilt morocco label, gently worn. Ownership signature on verso of title page, internally bright and clean copy, last folio slightly soiled. First edition. Marban?s is a very rare and singularly important vocabulary of the Moxos language, the first of its kind and the only for almost two centuries. The catechism, present herein, is usually lacking. The Arte is notable both as an important linguistic piece and an early South American imprint. "The language of the nation of the province of 'los Moxos,' in Bolivia, South America. Their language is related to the Maipure. This is the only work on the subject" (Sabin). ?Hasta hace poco este era el unico libro impreso referente a la lengua de los moxos? (Medina). The book is undated, Sabin records the date as 1701, while Medina believes it to be 1702; quite possibly, Medina is more accurate.

        Notæ ac observationes in literas rom.

      pontificis Agapeti II de prærogativa atque eminentia regis Upsalensis, sive Svioniæ. Accedunt prolegomena, quibus gloria linguæ & rei svionicæ, contra nonneminis insultus, atque haud ita pridem editas cavillationes, evidentissimis rationibus vindicatur. Uppsala, (Rudbeckska tryckeriet), (1702)-03. Folio. (11,1 blank),20,1-48 s. Med träsnittsillustrationer i texten. Ngt nött samtida skinnbd med upphöjda bind, oxiderade ryggdekorationer och helt guldsnitt. Dubbla oxiderade ramverk på pärmarna med olikfärgade fält. Turkmarmorerade för- och eftersättsblad. Ryggen ngt blekt och de yttre falsarna spruckna nedtill. Minimala ytliga maskangrepp på främre pärm och pärmarna ngt bågnade. Titelbladet och de följande tryckta dedikationerna ngt bruntonade. Enstaka fläckar, t.ex. på s. 35-36. Med Eric Edman Johanssons och Samuel Triewalds namnteckningar och Carl Jedvard Bondes formklippta exlibris. Från Ericsberg.. Warmholtz Bibliotheca historica Sueo-Gothica 6896. Enligt Per Hierta var Lundius "Notæ" det Rudbeckska tryckeriets sista arbete före branden (jämte sista delen av Atland) och en stor del av upplagan gick upp i rök. Warmholtz skriver att "boken är nu för tiden nog sälsynt". Lundius lät 1703 trycka ett nytt titelblad samt tre olika dedikationer till en del av de exemplar som fanns kvar. Dessa blad är mycket ovanliga. Själva påvebullan är ett grovt falsarium som går ut på att visa att Västgötalagens beskrivning av Danaholmstraktaten, då den svenske kungen satt till häst och den danske kungen höll i betslet, är sann, till skillnad från Skånelagens skildring, som är den omvända. Nils Ahnlund har visat att den notoriske lustlögnaren Nils Rabenius, kyrkoherde i Hedemora, lämnat sitt visitkort i texten, då den västmanländske representanten påstås tillhöra släkten Rabbe, en uppdiktad medeltida släkt som Rabenius påstod sig vara ättling till. Han skapade sig ett fint stamträd genom att föra in Rabbenamnet i medeltida handskrifter och i egna falsarier som detta. Gränsförteckningen är slarvigt redigerad, så samma gränsmärken återkommer i olika förvanskade skepnader och Västergötlands gräns mot Småland har också kommit med! Samuel Triewald (1688-1743), vars namnteckning återfinns i föreliggande exemplar, var författare, diplomat och ledamot av Vetenskapsakademien

      Frankfurt am Main, Apud Johannem David. Zunnerum et Nicolaum Wilhelmum Helwig,1702. Small folio. Very nice recent blue hcalf w. gilt lettering on spine. Title-page printed in red and black, w. woodcut vignette and stamp: "Jews college, London". Some brownspotting, but all in all a very nice copy. (12), 184, (8) (Index) pp.. Second edition of Ludolfus' groundbreaking Ethiopian Grammar. The German, Job Ludolf, was the first to bring the study of Etiopian subjects into a system, and his present work is the first of its kind to see the light of day. It was unusal for the time to take up the study of something like the Ethiopian laguage, and after Ludolfus' important philological works followed a long period of neglect, which did not end till the second half of the nineteenth century, when these studies were finally resumed, causing them to flourish.
