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. Brunet III, pp. 1223. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Ovide (43 avant Jésus Christ - 17 avant Jésus Christ), vécut durant l'emergence de l'empire romain. Il naquit un an après l'assassinat de César et assista à la phase de transformation de la république romaine en Empire sous le règne d'Auguste. Après des études de rhétorique, il abandonna une carrière administrative et juridique, se consacrant pleinement au metier d'écrivain, obtenant un grand succès avec ses différentes oeuvres: ''Les amours'', ''L'art d'aimer'' et ''Les remèdes de l'amour''. A l'âge de quarante ans il débuta l'écriture des ''Métamorphoses'', poème composé de 12 000 hexamètres en 16 livres, reprenant et s'inspirant des récits mythologiques grecs et romains. Ovide fut contraint à l'exil sur une petite île de la mer noire en Roumanie, pour des raisons d'ordre privé qui restent encore floues; sanctions du pouvoir conservateur sur un plan moral, contre l'auteur pour avoir écrit ''L'art d'aimer'', relation amoureuse prohibée d'Ovide avec une fille de l'Empereur ou bien que ce dernier … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: 1702. 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 bl … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mather, Cotton:
London: Printed for Thomas Parkhurst, 1702.. Double-page engraved map of New England and New York. Without errata leaves, as usual. Folio. Expertly bound to style in 18th- century calf, spine gilt in six compartments with raised bands, brown morocco label in the second compartment, the others with overall repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers. Expert restoration to title and map, else very good. Provenance: William Clarke (signature on title); Samuel Breck (signature on fly leaf). The first edition of what Howes calls the "most famous 18th century American book": a sentiment echoed by Streeter, who describes it 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 1690s," the decade in which m … [Click Below for Full Description]

LE BRUYN, Cornelius (1652-1727/28) [or Le Brun]
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, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Third edition of Dupin?'s Optatus, which was the best according to Graesse and NBG; it was previously printed in Paris, 1700, and Amsterdam, 1701. This printing, unlike the first, instead of endnotes has footnotes, which are easier to read. Optatus (c.315-c.386) was bishop of Mileva in Numidia. St. Augustine used his work and praised him greatly for his exemplary life. Dupin?'s edition includes a history and documentary collection on the Donatists and a geographical description of the African church. Dupin (1653-1719) also wrote a bibliographical history of the patristic writers, which got him into trouble and which Racine, amongst others advised him to recant. He was a correspondent of the Archbishop of Canterbury, William Wake, and tried to effect an Anglican reconciliation. Graesse V 30. Dupin?'s edition is fully described in NBG.

- Humpert 8622 - Kress 4907 - NDB 5, 255 - Lindner 11.617.01.- Erste Ausgabe der Fortsetzung (Bd. 1 erschien 1702) dieses herausragenden Werkes der Hausväterliteratur. - "Das Werk des Florinus repräsentiert die nächste Generation nach Hohberg und seinen 'Georgica curiosa' von 1682, die von Florinus stark benutzt, ja stellenweise wörtlich übernommen wurden. Über Hohberg hinaus ist der F. das umfangreichste und am prunkvollsten ausgestattete Werk, der äußere Höhepunkt der deutschen Hausväterliteratur." (NDB). Deutlicher als seine Vorgänger wendet sich Florinus gegen den ländlichen Aberglauben und bereitet so den Übergang zur Literatur der Aufklärung vor. Der vorliegende Band beschreibt die Hofhaltung und Regierungskunst, den Bau und Unterhalt von Pracht- und Staatsgebäuden sowie von Lustgärten. Einen großen Umfang nehmen die Reitkunst sowie das Jagd- und Waidwerk ein.- Die Kupfer zeigen u.a. hübsche Jagd- und Dressurszenen, Gartenanlagen und Szenen aus der Hofhaltung sowie 2 doppelblattgroße Ansichten des Schlosses Salzthalen bei Braunschweig. - Anfang u. Portr. mit einigen kl. Wurmlöchern. N. a. Vortit. - Insgesamt ungewöhnlich gut erhaltenes und nahezu fleckenfreies Exemplar. [Attributes: First Edition]

DELISLE, Guillaume.Engraved by Liébaux, Jean Baptiste.
Paris: Guillaume DeLisle, Quai de l'Horloge a l'Aigle d'Or . 1702 - Copper engraving. Original outline colour. Size: 61.5 x 47 cm. (24 x 18½ inches) Very good condition; both bottom margins have marks slightly affecting the image. Guilliame Delisle (1675-1726) is important as the first "scientific" cartographer who incorporated the most current information on exploration and topography into his maps. He adopted entirely new principles in cartography and set about making a thorough reform in that subject. Delisle recognized that the new methods of measuring by scale and of marking the places were very valuable for cartography; with this help he therefore produced a new and more accurate picture of the world. This beautiful map of the British Isles is extending west to east from Kerry to Oldenbourg and north to south from The Shetland Islands to Normandy, coloured by region. Fantastic title cartouche at top left, decorated with fish, birds, horses, fishing nets, with Neptune above and water below, secondary cartouche with five scales at lower right.
