        [GROUP OF THREE MANUSCRIPT DOCUMENTS RELATING TO THE ACTIVITY OF FRENCH CANADIAN AND PENNSYLVANIA FUR TRADER AND EXPLORER PETER BISAILLON]

      New York & Philadelphia. 1702, 1712, 1714.. 3pp. Folio. Old fold lines. Light wear and soiling, earliest document more heavily so. Good plus. Three significant early manuscript documents relating to French Canadian trapper and Indian trader and interpreter Peter Bisaillon and his trading activities in North America, including an official license from the Province of Pennsylvania. Bisaillon (1662-1742) - whose name appears in the documents spelled variously Besallion, Bizaillon, and Beselion - came to Canada with his four brothers in the late 17th century. He was part of Henri Tonti's expedition down the Mississippi that went in search of La Salle in 1686. Two or three years later he moved to Pennsylvania where he engaged in business with Jacques Le Tort as an employee of Dr. Daniel Coxe near present-day Spring City. Coxe ceased business in 1692, but Bisaillon and his associates continued to trade in the wilds of Pennsylvania and the western provinces, maintaining ties with various Indian tribes and Canadian trappers. Jealousies and competition within the fur trade and between the colonies was fierce and Bisaillon frequently ran into trouble when his competitors' patrons were in power. In 1712, Bisaillon finally found some measure of security in the patronage and employ of James Logan, the secretary of the province, who was consolidating control over both political power and the Indian trade. This endeavor would eventually help precipitate the French and Indian War, as Pennsylvania challenged France for control over the trade in the Ohio country. The first document chronologically is a letter written to Bisaillon by a young girl claiming to be his daughter. It is dated at New York, August 27, 1702 and is addressed "Beloved father." Jahanna Beselion, who makes her mark by her name at the end of the letter, pleads with Bisaillon to acknowledge her in some way, as her mother has given her away. She writes, with spelling as it appears in the letter: "Beloved father, My only desier is, that my dier father would be pleast to remember me, for I understand that you are my only father, my mother Jannaihe Scoute shee taks noe care of me for shee gave me away hwen I was a litle child to Anna Couvenowen, whar I have bin these 12 yeare and a halfe and have bin well brought up and mantand that I can do in the house wat belongs to it. Now my only desier is that my beloved father would be pleas to remember his diere child, and sand me few word back again that should mak me glad and satisfigd in my mind that I had a father in life; my homley respect to my diere father for ever Petter Beselion." The second document is a bond release between "John Treson of Philadelphia Skinner" and Bisaillon. The document, signed with Treson's mark and in the presence of two witnesses, releases "Peter Besallion of Philadelphia Indian Trader" from any judgments, transactions, quarrels, controversies, trespasses, or any other damages and demands which might be brought by Treson or his heirs. It is dated June 27, 1712. Treson and Bisaillon clearly had some sort of partnership or business accord. Bisaillon was licensed by the colony of Pennsylvania, although as a French national and a Roman Catholic he was considered an alien. Through his position with Logan, he maintained significant trading activities among the Conestoga Indians, the Delaware, and other tribes in the area. The third piece is perhaps the most interesting of the three, being an official Pennsylvania colonial license issued to Bisaillon as an Indian Trader in the province. It reads: "By the Commissioners of Property. We doe hereby authorize and allow Peter Bizaillon Indian Trader to seat him self at Peshlang or any other Indian Town or Place on Sasquehannah within this Province & to erect such buildingd as are necessary for his Trade, and to inclose and improve such quantities of land as he shall think fitt for the accommodation of his family and creatures not exceeding two hundred and fifty acres to be held during his Trade there or till further order shall be given herein by the Proprietor or his Commissioners provided alwayes that the said Peter shall not act or proceed in any thing under colour hereof but by the free leave & approbation of the Indians amongst whom he dwells or resides. Given under our hands and seal of the Province at Philadelphia the 15th day of October AD 1714." It is signed by Richard Hill, Isaac Norris, James Logan and bears the paper and wax seal of the colony. A collection of fascinating and early documents relating to the life of this important trapper and trader in early frontier Pennsylvania.

The name Schenk will always closely linked with the name Valk; another well known Dutch engraving and publishing family via their linking in both business and family terms.

        Anabaptisticum et Enthusiasticum

      Kothen [] - No Publisher Given, 1702 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce copy of this controversial pro-Lutheran work from the early eighteenth-century in fourteen pamphlets. In German and Latin, written inGothic script. Illustrated throughout with fifty-three engraved plates. From the antiquarian library of Emeritus Professor David A. Palin of the University of Manchester (signature to front pastedown), collected over a period of almost forty years. The work is a collection of items, each with its own title-page and pagination. Although the attribution to Johann Friedrich Corvinus as the compiler is according to a note on the front pastedown citing R. Foth writing in The Mennonite Encyclopaedia and is followed by the Oxford catalogue, on the blank opposite the title page there is a note in German from about the end of the 18th century saying that the catalogue of the library of Abbot Molanus ascribes the work to Henry George Neuss (who was the author of the final item in the compilation. ) [From the catalogue of David Palin's private library]. Tipped-in ink description reads, 'A strange pamphleteering volume, large folio in size, with over 1,000 pages, was compiled in 1702 by a certain Johann Friedrich Corvinus (Rabe), a Lutheran minister of Hornburg (died 1724). The volume contains 14 different pamphlets attacking practically everyone who was not of the strict Lutheran orthodoxy of about 1700. It attacks above all the Quakers, but also Mystics, Pansophists (Rosicrucians), all kinds of Pietists (e. g. , Labadie), philosophers such as Descartes, Spinoza and Hobbes, Jews, Cromwell and his Puritans, and, last but not least, the old and new fanatics of Anabaptist spirit (pamphlet II). Yet, in the text proper, only Thomas Mntzer is discussed. Condition: In a vellum binding. Externally, a little worn, with marks and slight wear to the extremities. Hinges are slightly strained. Internally, generally firmly bound although strained in places, with one plate detached. Institutional ink stamps to front pastedown and endpapers, with ink inscription and tipped-in synopsis of the work, along with a second tipped-in synopsis attributing the work to a different author to the front free-endpaper. Evidence of past worming to first few pages. Pages are quite bright considering the age, though with some light background foxing and some offsetting. Overall: GOOD..

      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.

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.

John Gardiner, 1675 - 1749,was also the author of An inquiry into the Nature, Cause, and Cure of the Gout. Joseph Browne, died c. 1721, was an English physician and satirist. 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. There is very slight wear to the extremities, including very slight rubbing, prominent to the title.

C'est le plan général de la société civile le mieux fait et le plus achevé qui ait jamais paru, et je l'ai toujours regardé comme un ouvrage précieuxque j'ai vu croître et presque naître entre mes mains".

      Il Nolin installò l?attività editoriale di famiglia a Parigi, in via Rue St. Jacques, dove incise e vendette numerose mappe; su molte di queste, riportò erroneamente la dicitura di ?incisore del Re? e ?geografo del Duca di Orleans?.

L?opera è tratta dal celebre Theatre de la guerré en Italie.., per la prima volta edito nel 1691. Incisione in ramei, alcune pieghe di carta, coloritura coeva dei contorni, in buono stato di conservazione. Parigi Paris 470 570
