        A set of Dampier's voyages, complete to 1703 with the publication of the "Voyage to New Holland"

      London: James Knapton, 1703. In good condition.. Three volumes, octavo, with altogether 14 engraved maps and 10 plates and tables (vol 1: five maps (four folding); vol 2: four folding maps; vol 3: folding frontispiece map, four maps and 10 plates and tables); in a good neat modern binding of tan panelled calf. An attractive set of Dampier's voyages, complete to the publication of the Voyage to New Holland (but before publication of the separately-published continuation of 1709). Most sets of Dampier's voyages are examples of the much later compilation edition of 1729 and sets composed of the original printings are desirable. This set is composed as follows: 1. A New Voyage round the World… Second edition, corrected from the first edition of the same year.The first account of the first English landing in Australia: in 1688, "being now clear of all the Islands, we stood off South, intending to touch at New Holland, a part of Terra Australis Incognita, to see what the country would afford us… New Holland is a very large tract of Land. It is not yet determined whether it is an Island or a main Continent; but I am certain that it joyns neither to Asia, Africa, nor America…". Dampier describes the appearance of the country and its natural produce, and includes a long description of the native inhabitants. The folding "Map of the East Indies" shows a large proportion of the north-west coast of Australia and marks the point (present-day Dampier Land) where the expedition stopped before turning back to the East Indies.2. Voyages and Descriptions Vol. II… A supplement to the Voyage round the World… Second edition.The continuation of Dampier's New Voyage, described as Volume II on the title-page but quite separately published. The first part is the most interesting, dealing with Dampier's experiences in the Far East and the East Indies.3. A Voyage to New Holland, &c. in the year, 1699… First edition.The important and rare first edition of the first deliberate English voyage to Australia, one of very few classic pre-Cook voyages to the continent. Dampier was the first Englishman to visit Australia when he stopped on the west coast in 1688, but he remained only a short time (publishing an account in 1697). In 1699, he set sail again on this voyage to New Holland. His account represented a third volume of adventures, and although the title page refers to the work as volume three, it was in fact published quite separately. The engraved plates - birds, fish and plants - are among the very earliest depictions of Australian natural history.Copies of the original edition of this voyage to New Holland are now uncommon. As James A. Williamson wrote in his introduction to the 1939 Argonaut Press edition, 'Dampier's permanent service to his countrymen was to arouse their interest in the exploration of the Pacific… His third and last book... concentrated attention more particularly on the western and southern Pacific. It might have been more aptly described as a voyage to New Britain and a project for Eastern Australia, for there essentially lay the focus of his interest…'.These classic voyage narratives by England's most famous buccaneer represent a major body of early Pacific description, including the first landing by an Englishman in Australia, and the first deliberate English voyage to Australia, one of very few classic pre-Cook voyages to the continent.Widely regarded as the greatest English explorer and navigator before Cook, Dampier was also a popular and exciting writer. His books went through many editions - indeed he is still in print in one form or another - and copies of the early editions of his voyages have always been difficult to find. In 1729 his publishers made an effort to continue sales by establishing a uniform version, but even in the early nineteenth century the books were rare: Burney noted in his collection of Voyages (vol. IV, p. 486) that "Many editions of Dampier's Voyages have been printed, and they have been so fairly worn out that at this time it is difficult to procure a complete set…". He also commented that "It is not easy to name another voyager or traveller who has given more useful information to the world; to who the merchant and mariner are so much indebted; or who has communicated his information in a more unembarrassed and intelligible manner. And this has been done in a style perfectly unassuming, equally free from affectation and from the most distant appearance of invention. It is with peculiar justness of feeling that the author of the Navigation aux Terres Australes [i.e. de Brosses], speaking of him, demands 'mais où trouve t'on des navigateurs comparables à Dampier?' Swift approved the plainness and simplicity of his style, as is evident by Captain Lemuel Gulliver hailing him cousin…" Provenance: Private collection (Sydney).

        Circuli Bavarici . das ist: Kurzgefasste Beschreibung des Bajerischen Kreißes.

      W. Michaehelles / J. Adolph, Nürnberg 1703. - kl.8°, Schweinsledereinband, Iv und 252 und 4 Textseiten, 15 Abb.-Seiten (davon 13 handkoloriert) Der volle Titel lautet: „Circuli Bavarici succinta Descriptio. Das ist: Kurzgefasste Beschreibung des Bajerischen Kreißes [Bayerischen kreises] / Darinnen Das Churfürstenthum Ober- und Niederbajern / das Erzbistum Salzburg / die Bistümer Passau, Freysingen und Regenspurg, die gefürstete Probstey zu Berchtoldsgaden, die Abteyen zu Kaisersheim, Haimeran und Waldsachsen etc., die Ober-Pfalz, die Herzogthümer Neuburg und Sultzbach, die Grafschafften Leuchtenberg, Ortenburg, Steinstein, Maxlrain, Wolffstein etc. samt ihren Städten, Vestungen, Clöstern und Schlössern nach ihrer Fruchtbarkeit, Lager, Grösse, Seltenheiten, Gebäuden, Glück- und Unglücksfällen abgehandelt befindlich / und mit beygefügten Kupffern deren vornehmlichsten Städten ans Liecht gegeben worden." „Nürnberg, in Verlegung Wolffgang Michahelles und Johann Adolph, 1703, gedruckt bey Christian Sigmund Froberg". Bemerkenswert an dem vorliegenden Exemplar sind die handschriftlichen Marginalien, die ein Johann Georg Baum, Pfarrer zu Bergen ab 1703 anfügte. Baum hat seinen Namen auf der Titelseite eingetragen und hat zahlreiche Abb.-Seiten in feiner Handschrift mit Anmerkungen versehen. Dabei ging es ihm um die politisch-militärischen Ereignisse der Jahre 1703-1705, als im Zuge des spanischen Erbfolgekrieges auch Süddeutschland Kampfhandlungen erleiden musste. Pfarrer Baum sieht den Max Emanuel eher als Verräter am Reich, denn als aufrechten Regenten Bayerns. Seinen Anmerkungen ist politischer Grimm deutlich anzumerken. So steht beim Titelstich, der Kurfürst Max II Emanuel zeigt: „Dieser sonst berühmte Churfürst hat aus Jalousie gegen das Ertzhaus Oesterreich sich mit Franckreich als dem Reichsfeind conjugiert, Ulm, Memmingen etc. eingenommen und einen landverderblichen Krieg ins Röm. Reich deutscher Naon gezogen, nur daß er seine Ambition stillen, König in Schwaben, Francken u. Neapel werden mögte. 1702. Aber Gott hat ihn ernidriget". Der gedruckte Satz „Chur Fürst in Bayrn" unter dem Portrait ist durchgestrichen, darunter steht: „Herzog in Braband, so lang Gott will.", um das Portrait steht: „Cecidit, Cecidit Bavarorum in Caesarem Maximus Perfidus [.] Coronari aut Rumpi, Echo Rumpi". Die ganzseitigen Stiche zeigen Darstellungen von Max Emanuel, Ingolstadt (hier eine politische Anmerkungen Baums bzgl. der Übergabe der Stadt an den Kaiser 1704), Landshut (ohne Anmerkungen), München (die Abb. nicht koloriert, politische Anmerkungen zu Geschehnissen 1705), Rain, Straubing, Salzburg, Passau (Bild von Anmerkungen umgeben bzgl. der Einnahme der Stadt 1704 durch den Kurfürsten), Amberg (nicht koloriert, Anmerkungen zu Ereignisse im Dezember 1703), Hilpolstein, Neumarkt, Neuburg (mit Anmerkung zu Ereignissen 1704), Lauingen (nicht koloriert), Sulzbach, Regensburg (von Anmerkungen umgeben, auch Rückseite teils beschrieben). Zustand: Etliche handschriftliche Anmerkungen des Baum finden sich auch im Textteil bzgl. einzelner Orte, jeweils zu Ereignissen der Jahre 1703-1705, auch das letzte (leere) Blatt des Blocks ist beschrieben und der hintere Einbanddeckel innen. Einband etwas berieben und fleckig, wenige Seiten mit kleiner Randläsur, sonst gut.

        Of the Law of Nature and Nations

      1703. PUFENDORF, Samuel. Of the Law of Nature and Nations. Eight Books. London: J. Walthoe, R. Wilkin, et al., 1729. Folio, modern beige cloth, raised bands, printed paper spine label. $1600.Fourth edition in English of PufendorfÂ’s landmark work on the law of nature and nations, De Jure Naturae et Gentium, containing for the first time the notes and prefatory discourse of Jean Barbeyrac, PufendorfÂ’s French translator.A landmark in the German Enlightenment, “the De Jure Naturae is a large work in eight books which presents an entire system of jurisprudence, private, public and international, based on the conception of natural law. Pufendorf was a disciple of Grotius, and was considered of first rank by Kent” (NYU 578). Pufendorf “teaches that the will of the state is but the sum of the individual wills that constitute it, and that this association explains the state. In this a priori conceptionÂ… he shows himself as one of the precursors of J. J. Rousseau and of the Contrat social. Pufendorf powerfully defends the idea that international law is not restricted to Christendom, but constitutes a common bond between all nations because all nations form part of humanity” (Britannica). First published in German in 1672 (and in English in 1703), this work was “received with great favor and commented upon by the learned throughout all Europe. Pufendorf restored natural law to that superiority which belonged to it, and with great propriety treated the Law of Nations as only one main branch of the parent stock” (Marvin 593-4). With chapters on such fundamental subjects as the will of man, the natural state of man, the law of nature, civil societies, moral actions, the structure of government, sovereignty, commonwealths, liberty, “Despotical Power,” “All Men are by Nature Equal,” “The Mutual Duties of Humanity,” “Speech, and the Obligation which attends it,” property, contracts, war and peace, and self-defense. BarbeyracÂ’s prefatory discourse, the 88-page “Historical and Critical Account of the Science of Morality,” with separate title, is bound at the front of the volume. Fine condition.

        Legal Opinion Signed, concerning the Royal Manor of Kings Norton, (Thomas, 1657-1704, from 1700 Serjeant-at-Law)

      1703 - south of Birmingham, in answer to 5 queries by the Freeholders, Copyholders and Tenants, about infringement of their rights over the common wasteland where they graze cattle and "cutt Goss [gorse] Ling Furrs [furze] Thorns & Shrubs", their complaint is against "several poor people" who "within sixty years . have erected Cottages . & inclosed . about an Acre or two", the Cottagers have been paying their annual fines to the Lord of the Manor at the Court Leet. They have also been required to open their enclosures between Allhallows (1st November) and Candlemas (2nd February). Now Sir Henry Parker is threatening to turn "the poor Cottagers . out of Doors unless they will . take leases" and is also suing "several Tennants & Freeholders for . carrying Marle out of the said Waste grounds & for digging Turf", thus at least three parties are involved, this is a fascinating analysis at a time when Commoners' rights were still largely enforceable, 2 sides folio, 13th February 1702, modern calendar Kings Norton was a royal demesne from before the Conquest till 1803. In the 17th century it was conferred on successive Queens, here Charles II's Catherine of Braganza (1638-1705). She had devised the manor for a period of years to the late C. Aldsworth, with Sir Henry Parker, (1638-1713, 2nd Bart. of Melford Hall, Suffolk), now holding it in trust for his widow and son. The wasteland attached to the manor is today Kings Heath. The first query is whether to make the Cottagers defendants (and if so, how they might plead to maintain possession), or, (given their acceptance of the fines), whether the Cottagers should accept judgment by default. (Carthew thinks they had better accept the latter, as they are 'Common Ejectors'). Nor can they take away the materials of their Cottages. If afterwards Sir Henry keeps the cottages, he in turn can be sued by any Commoner, under 31 Elizabeth I c. 7 against enclosure. If he sues the Freeholders over the marl he will win. Finally the correct way to stop the Steward increasing his Court Fees is "by Inditement for Extortion".

      London: Printed for John Hartley, 1703. 8vo, contemporary panelled calf, red morocco label, gilt lettering and gilt-rolled edges. ¶ Over 200 letters from Thomas Bodley (1545-1613) to the his first librarian, Thomas James (1572-1629), on matters pertaining to the establishment, plan, design and mission of the library, including methods of cataloging, types of bindings, subject matters to be included and excluded, etc. James was responsible for the arrangement with the Stationers' Company of London to deposit in the library copies of books printed in London, which Bodley initially objected to on the grounds that it would introduce riffraff, particularly plays, to his library. James was also responsible for the first catalogue of the library. Reliquiae Bodleianæ is the first book by another distinguished employee of the Bodleian, antiquarian Thomas Hearne (1678-1735). See the DNB online. A few leaves dust soiled; mild staining in the gutter of several leaves from leather preservative applied too liberally to the spine; edge of the binding slightly rubbed; overall a fine, handsome copy.

        A Voyage to New Holland, &c. In the Year, 1699...

      London: James Knapton, 1703. Octavo, with a folding frontispiece map, four maps and ten plates and tables; publishers advertisements at end; period style calf. The important and rare first edition of the first deliberate English voyage to Australia, one of very few classic pre-Cook voyages to the continent. Dampier was the first Englishman to visit Australia when he stopped on the west coast in 1688, but he remained only a short time (publishing an account in 1697). In 1699, he set sail again on this voyage to New Holland. His account represented a third volume of adventures, and although the title page refers to the work as volume three, it was in fact published quite separately. The engraved plates - birds, fish and plants - are among the very earliest depictions of Australian natural history.'Dampier's 1699 voyage was the second expedition of the English to Australia. He furnished accurate information and surveys, and wrote concerning Australia: "It is not yet determined whether it is an island or a main continent; but I am certain that it joyns neither to Asia, Africa, nor America." His description of the Aborigines of Australia probably inspired Jonathan Swift to write about Gulliver among the Yahoos' (Hill).Widely regarded as the greatest English explorer and navigator before Cook, Dampier was also a popular and exciting writer. His books went through many editions - indeed he is still in print in one form or another - but copies of the first edition of this voyage to New Holland are now uncommon. As James A. Williamson wrote in his introduction to the 1939 Argonaut Press edition of the Voyage to New Holland, 'Dampier's permanent service to his countrymen was to arouse their interest in the exploration of the Pacific... His third and last book, the Voyage to New Holland, concentrated attention more particularly on the western and southern Pacific. It might have been more aptly described as a voyage to New Britain and a project for Eastern Australia, for there essentially lay the focus of his interest... '.A continuation was published in 1709. A good copy in period style calf.
