        New Voyages To North-America. Containing An Account of the several Nations of that vast Continent.A Geographical Description of Canada, and a Natural History of the Country.

      London: Printed for H.Bonwicke, T.Goodwin, M.Wotton, B.Tooke, and S.Manship, 1703. - 2 Volumes. 8vo. pp. 2 p.l., [20], 280; 1 p.l., 302, [2]leaf of ads, [13]index. 4 engraved maps (2 large & folding) & 20 engraved plates (1 folding). complete with the rare frontis. in Vol. II which is usually wanting. modern red straight-grained morocco by Cecil & Larkins, a.e.g. (joints & extremities rubbed, some light foxing). First Edition of the English Translation. Lahontan was only sixteen years of age when he first arrived in New France in 1683, as an officer in the colonial regular troops. During the next ten years he saw active service in the sieur de La Barre’s expedition against the Iroquois in 1684, in the Marquis de Denonville’s campaign against the Senecas in 1687, and in numerous skirmishes with the English. In 1693 he was appointed King’s lieutenant in Plaisance (Placentia), Newfoundland. His career, however, came to an abrupt end when he was accused of insubordination by the governor of Newfoundland, Jacques François de Brouillan. Lahontan fled to Portugal and spent the rest of his life in wandering exile, chiefly in Holland and Germany. The daily journals Lahontan faithfully kept during his stay in New France for the basis of this work, which gained such immense popularity that it went through no less than 25 legitimate and pirated editions within sixty years of its first publication (The Hague: 1703). Next to Louis Hennepin’s, his was the most widely read North American travel narrative of the eighteenth century. Despite the exposure, by Charlevois and his cartographer Bellin, of the fictitious nature of Lahontan’s voyage up the ‘Long River’ (the Minnesota), which seriously discredited the work, its overall authenticity is now generally acknowledged. In 1903, the American scholar R.G.Thwaites concluded that "in topography, geography, ethnology, and natural history, all of it the record of personal knowledge, Lahontan’s work stands as one of the important sources for the intimate study of New France." The vivid and lively descriptions of New France, its social and political life, the manners and customs of the native inhabitants and their method of warfare, are further enhanced by Lahontain’s philosophical views. His notions about Christian dogmatism and the vices of European society which he contrasts with the virtues of the ‘noble savage’, presaged the work of Swift, Rousseau, and Voltaire. The first English edition was published in London under the patronage of the Duke of Devonshire and it is in many respects preferable to the first edition (The Hague: 1703). Lahontan was in London to supervise the printing and he himself corrected the engravings, which the "Dutch Gravers had murder’d.by not understanding their Explications, which were all in French." (Preface) A map of Newfoundland here appears for the first time and the edition incorporates, in expanded form, the contents of the supplement, detailing the author’s travels in Europe and the controversial dialogue with the mythical Indian ‘Adario’ (identified by some historians as the Huron chief Kondiaronk).

        Les Entretiens D'Ariste et D'Eugene

      Title Page Printed in Red and Black by Roger in Amsterdam in 1703, the year after Dominque Bouhours death, this elegantly bound book was once owned by Nicolai Joseph Foucault and has his wonderful bookplate as well as his deeply embossed Seal on the front and back of the book. Period blind stamp binding with 6 wonderful compartments. There is some minor separation of the leather along the spine but that is easily repaired. The book is tight, crisp and is in overall very good condition.Dominique Bouhours (15 May 1628 - 27 May 1702) was a French Jesuit priest, essayist and neo-classical critic. He was born and died in Paris. Bouhours entered the Society of Jesus at the age of sixteen, and was appointed to read lectures on literature in the Collège de Clermont at Paris, and on rhetoric at Tours and Rouen. He afterwards became private tutor to the two sons of Henri II d'Orléans, duc de Longueville. First Amsterdam Edition.He was sent to Dunkirk to the Romanist refugees from the Commonwealth of England, and in the midst of his missionary occupations published several books. In 1665 or 1666 he returned to Paris, and published in 1671 Les Entretiens d'Ariste et d'Eugène, which was reprinted four more times at Paris, twice at Grenoble, and afterwards at Lyon, Brussels, Amsterdam, Leiden and other cities. The work consists of six conversations (entretiens) between two companionable friends whose Greek- and Latin-derived names both mean "well-born", in the agreeable discursive manner of the well-informed amateur as it had become established in the salons?" "the free and familiar conversations that well-bred people have (honnêtes gens, a by-word of the précieuses of the salons) when they are friends, and which do not fail to be witty, and even knowledgeable, though one never dreams there of making wit show, and study has no part in it."[1] The subjects, erudite but devoid of pedantry, are the Sea, considered as an object of contemplation, the French language, Secrets, True Wit ("Le Bel Esprit"), The Ineffable ("Le Je ne sais quoi") and Mottoes ("Devises"), all expressed in flawless idiom and effortless allusions to the Classics or Torquato Tasso. The popularity of Bouhours' discursive, heuristic Entretiens extended to Poland, where Stanislaw Herakliusz Lubomirski imitated them in Dialogues of Artakses and Ewander.His thoughts on the elusive je ne sais quoi that was in vogue in the seventeenth century, expressed through his characters, ends in assessing it a mystery that escapes a rational inquiry. It determined by its delicate presence, its grace and invisible charm, the sense of what pleases or displeases in Nature as well as Art, and remained an essential part of the French critical vocabulary until the advent of Romanticism.[2]His Doutes sur la langue française proposés aux Messieurs le l'Académie française (Paris, 1674; corrected second edition, 1675) was called "the most important and best organized of his numerous commentaries on the literary language of his time"[3] when it was edited in a critical edition. His doubts are collected under five headings: vocabulary, phrases and collocations, grammatical constructions, clarity, and stylistic consistency, in each case setting literary quotations under scrutiny. His standards, expressed in the suggestions he offered for improving each example, showed the way out of ambiguities, skirting incongruous juxtapositions and untidy constructions. The work was widely accepted and Bouhours standards are still the accepted norm among literate readers today.The chief of his other works are La Manière de bien penser sur les ouvrages d'esprit (1687), which appeared in London in 1705 under the title, The Art of Criticism, Vie de Saint Ignace de Loyola (1679), Vie de Saint François Xavier (1682),[4] and a translation of the New Testament into French (1697). His letters against the Jansenists had a wide circulation. His practice of publishing secular books and works of devotion alternately led to the mot, qu'il servait le monde et le ciel par semestre. Bouhours died at Paris in 1702.According to the book Mother Tongue by Bill Bryson, Bouhours' dying words were "I am about to -- or I am going to -- die: either expression is used."

Amsterdam: George Gallet, 1703.First French edition. Folio (13 3/4 x 9 inches; 349 x 229 mm). [6], 556, [4] pp. Complete with half-title, engraved frontispiece, Thirty-four engraved maps, plates and plans and forty-three engravings in the text. The thirty-four engraved maps, plates and plans are comprised of one large folding map, sixteen, full page plates and seventeen double page plates.

Overall a very clean, nice copy.\"Olfert Dapper (1635/6?-1689) was a Dutch physician and scholar who devoted himself to geographical and historical studies which were notable for their fine plates and illustrations, as here, though he never visited the places he described. Other works included Syria and Palestine, Asia Minor and Mesopotamia and the Morea.\" (Sotheby\'s 11/13/08).\"Dapper\'s account of the Greek islands was first published in his native Dutch in 1688. This French translation, printed in Amsterdam in 1703, re-uses the engraved plates of earlier Dutch editions, as can be deduced from the presence of Dutch captions to some of the plates. Dapper\'s work is as much a lament for the present state of Greece\'s past glories as it is an architectural and archaeological guide...The plate of Delos on display, with its pathetic heaps of fallen masonry, overgrown with weeds and now the home of snakes and lizards, perfectly complements the tone of the text.\" (Kings College London- Katie Sambrook).Atabey 323.

        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; some foxing but a good copy in period style calf. The first deliberate English voyage to Australia. 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.

Second Part, Being a farther Relation of the Cruel and Bloody Sufferings of the People call'd Quakers... from anno 1660, to anno 1665.

With Remarks and Observations on several Passages in the same, and his Consessions to the Just Judgments of God on them

      London: T. Sowle, 1703. London: T. Sowle, 1703. First Thus. Full-Leather. Good/No Jacket. First thus. Founding father John Jay's signature on title page. Boards rubbed, binding split at one point but reinforced at some point with leather tape to spine head & foot, ink name & date on front endpaper (Alice Stevenson 1729), a few pages faintly foxed. The association with John Jay is particularly interesting: Jay served as vice-president and president of the American Bible Society, and believed strongly that the spread of the Christian gospel was an important element of national stability and, ultimately, the key to world peace: "Real Christians will abstain from violating the rights of others, and therefore will not provoke war. Almost all nations have peace or war at the will and pleasure of rulers whom they do not elect, and who are not always wise or virtuous. Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest, of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers" (William Jay, The Life of John Jay: With Selections from His Correspondence and Miscellaneous Papers, New York, 1833). Jay is also well-known as: the first Chief Justice of the United States; author of five essays included in the Federalist Papers published by Hamilton and Madison; signor of the Treaty of Paris; President of the Continental Congress; Governor of New York State; and a leading activist in human rights, particularly abolition. His career indicates a sympathy for those persecuted or underrepresented in government, with a strong undercurrent of religious fervor; whether this book helped form those opinions, or was acquired later as a result of them, is an interesting question to ponder. 1703 Full-Leather. [viii], 498; 212, [12] pp. 8vo. Original paneled calf. Two works bound in one volume, the first reprinted from the 1661 original, with an introduction by Joseph Grove and an index following the text. These were released in a single volume published by female printer and bookseller Tace Sowle (1666-1749), who was also of Quaker birth. In the late 17th century Sowle was negotiating with Quakers to print their founders' works (Jones, Women and Literature in Britain, 1700-1800, 145), and has received recognition as an important figure in Quaker printing (Maureen Storey, Soul Search, April 2007). Both works focus on the religious persecution of the Quakers, including 'whippings, chainings, finings, imprisonings, starvings, burning in the hand, cutting off ears, and putting to death,' as well as defamation in print by such figures as Cotton Mather.

        Georgii bulliS. theologica professoris and presbyteri anglicani opera omna quibus duo praecipui catholicae fidei articuli de S. Trinitate and Justificatione Orthodoxe, Perspciue, ac solide explananteur, illustrantur, confirmantur

      London - Samuel Bridge, 1703. London - Samuel Bridge, 1703 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A scarcefirst edition of the complete works of George Bull, priest and theology professor. He wrote four major theological treatises in Latin, one on justification and three on the Trinity. The Latin works were collected and edited by John Ernest Grabe in 1703, with a preface and annotations by the editor, in one volume folio. He wrote his first book, the Harmonia Apostolica, in an attempt to reconcile the apparent discrepancies between St. Paul and the Epistle of James on the relationship of faith and good works in Christian justification. He advocated the principle that St. Paul ought to be interpreted by St. James, not St. James by St. Paul, on the ground that St. James wrote later, and was presumed acquainted with St. Paul's teaching. In six separately paginated parts. In Latin. Comprised of Defensio Fidei Nicaena,Judicium Ecclesiae Catholicae, Primitiva and Apostolica Traditio, Harmonia Apostolica, Examen Censurae Sive Responsio , and Apologia Pro Harmonia ejusque authore. Condition: In a full calf binding. Externally worn, with rubbing to the boards and loss to boards and spine. Front joint failed, with front board detached. Internally, generally firmly bound, though front endpapers detached with front board. Bookplate to front pastedown. Pages are bright and mainly clean, with just the odd spot. Overall: FAIR..

Franckfurt u. Leipzig, by Philipp Wilhelm Stock, 1704. 7 Bll., 128 S. Mit 9 gefalt. Kupfertaf. (Chiromantie, astrolog. u. magische Fig.) u. einigen quadratischen Horoskopschemata im Text. - Dünnhaupt 1441: "Waibler hält dies nicht für ein nachgelassenens Werk Praetorius', sondern eher für eine posthume deutsche Bearbeitung seiner lateinischen Schrift 'Ludicrum chiromanticum' (1664) und 'Metoposcopia' (1661)"; Ackermann IV/581: "Gräße, Bibl. Mag. S. 107 kennt nur spätere Ausgaben". - Johann Praetorius (1630-1680) aus Zethlingen in der Altmark war Philosoph u. Magister. Seine Schriften behandeln vorwiegend volkskundliche Themen, wobei er dem Aberglauben seiner Zeit besondere Aufmerksamkeit schenkte. Er gilt für das 17. Jh. als Hauptvertreter der Chiromantie, einer Praktik der Wahrsagekunst, die eine Urform der Chirologie darstellt. Die beiden Werke wurden häufiger zusammen gebunden. - Papier gebräunt u. tlw. etwas angerändert; der etwas fleckige Titel von "Schalitz" (ohne Textverlust) ausgeschnitten u. auf passendes altes Papier aufgezogen u. mit Nr., sonst gut, doch ohne das Frontispiz (auf der fehlenden Porträt-Tafel nennt sich der Verfasser "quondam protoconsul in Kindelbruck").

        Stato di Milano e Provincie Confinanti dalla Parte Orientale &c

      Lombardia - Stato di Milano 1703 - Il titolo della carta à inserito in alto a destra in un decorativo festone sostenuto da un putto alato; vi si legge â??STATO DI MILANO e Provincie Confinanti dalla Parte Orientaleâ??. A sinistra della carta si segnalano, entro un drappo sostenuto da un angioletto, delle curiose avvertenze al lettore: â??Lettore / Se in questa Carta non / vedrai delineati tutti i / luoghi piccoli sappi che / lâ??intentione à stata di metterti per ora sotto glâ??occhi i pià principali, / con le strade, e Fiumi, / per darti poi a vedere / in altro pià diffuso dis / segno minutamente cio, / che manca al presente, / e vivi feliceâ??. La carta fu sicuramente edita come foglio singolo; infatti, come si legge nella dedica al lettore, lâ??autore preannuncia lâ??uscita di una carta successiva pià particolareggiata, di cui perà non si hanno notizie. La carta del Frattino nacque in un momento particolare della storia del Ducato di Milano, in quanto contemporanea al passaggio tra il dominio spagnolo e quello austriaco avvenuto nel 1706. Fu considerata molto importante per la precisione con cui erano segnati i confini del Ducato di Milano verso il Piemonte, tanto che il governo austriaco nel 1739 ne sollecità lâ??acquisto.Riferimenti: Davoli, Sanfelici, Zanasi Terre di Langobardia la Lombardia, il corso del Poâ?? e il Ducato Estense nellâ??antica cartografia a stampa 1520 â?" 1796, pag. 108.

        Two Treatises of Thomas Lawson, Deceased, bound with Two Treatises More, by Thomas Lawson, Deceased

      T. Sowle, in White-Hart-Court, in Gracious-Street 1703 - B00ILG44V6 1703 'Printed and Sold by T. Sowle, in White-Hart-Court, in Gracious-Street' (London), two volumes bound in one (see complete titles below), 4 x 6 3/4 inches tall x 1 1/2 inches thick full leather bound, four raised bands and gilt-titled crimson leather label to spine, refreshed endpapers, 288, [2], 168, 96 pp. Except for the blank endpaper between the two volumes, lacks original blanks; otherwise complete. A bit of mild tanning, staining and foxing to pages, mainly title pages. In all other respects, a very good, handsome copy of this two-volume work. Gives a splendid shelf appearance. An important set of works by this respected early botanist and Quaker. Also notable as an early work from a female Quaker printer, Tace Sowle (see below). Quite scarce; the English Short-Title Catalog records only seven institutions worldwide which hold both volumes. References: ESTC Nos. N4715, T111560; Smith, J. Friends' books, 2.91. ~JJJ~ Thomas Lawson (1630 - 1691) was an English botanist and Quaker. Born at Lawkland, near Settle, Yorkshire, England, and educated at Giggleswick, graduating in 1656, Lawson was adept in Hebrew, Greek and Latin. George Fox visited him in Lancashire in 1652, and he was invited to preach in church. Lawson soon after became convinced of the unlawfulness of preaching for hire, and at twenty-three gave up his living to join the Quakers. He was not a preacher, though he was clerk to the monthly meetings for many years. He was frequently distrained upon for non-payment of tithe, and possibly imprisoned. Gerard Croese called him the most noted herbalist in England. Noted English naturalist John Ray (1627 - 1705), with whom he was on intimate terms, speaks of Lawson as a 'diligent, industrious, and skilful botanist,' and he was asked to contribute to 'Synopsis Methodica Insectorum' which Ray contemplated but did not live to complete. Thomas Robinson in his 'Essay towards a Natural History of Westmoreland and Cumberland' used manuscripts supplied by Lawson's daughter. Several English plants were first noted by him, and 'Hieracium Lawsonii' was named after him. About the printer: Tace Sowle, born around 1665, was the daughter of Andrew and Jane Sowle, both printers. She served her apprenticeship under her father, taking on his mantle as a principal Quaker publisher when his eyesight began to fail. Her name appears from 1691 onwards. After Andrew's death in 1695, she ran the printing press at the Crooked Billet In Holloway Lane, Shoreditch, London, as well as her other printing address, where these works were produced, 'next door to the meeting house in White Hart Court, Gracious Street,' first with her mother and, after her mother's death in 1711, with her husband Thomas Raylton. Although a hosier, he helped her until his death in 1723 and she continued alone until 1738 when she went into partnership with Luke Hinde, a nephew. They continued together until Tace's death in 1749 at the age of 84, the oldest printer in London. COMPLETE TITLES: 'Two treatises of Thomas Lawson deceased. The first, A mite into the treasury; Being a Word to Artists, Especially Heptatechnists, the Professors of the Seven Liberal Arts; Shewing What is Therein Owned by the People Called Quakers, and What Denied by Them. With Several Other Things, Touching the Divinity of the Heathen and School-Titles, Habits, Degrees, Etc. The second, A Treatise Relating to the Call, Work and Wages of the Ministers of Christ, and of Antichrist, Wherein a Testimony is Born for the Former, and Against the Latter. With Several Other Things, As Will More Largely Appear in the Contents of the Said Treatises,' bound with 'Two Treatises More, by Thomas Lawson, Deceased. The First, of Baptisms; With a Discourse Concerning Bread and Wine. The Second, Dagon's Fall Before the Ark.' [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [Alpha kai Omega]. Alphabeta ac notae diversarum linguarum pene septuaginta, tum & versiones Orationis Dominicae.

      Berlin, Johannes Liebermann, (1703).. 4to. 23 parts in 1 volume. (16), (4), (8), (8), (10), (4), (4), (4), (4), (4), (4), (4), (4), (4), (4), (4), (8), (12), (12), 64, (10), (6), (8), (4), (4), 40, (2) pp. With large folding world map, 13 engr. plates, 16 full-page and 10 half-page engravings in the text, as well as several woodcut script specimens. Contemp. calf with giltstamped spine. Edges sprinkled in red.. Very rare first edition of this lavishly illustrated posthumous collection of Müller's works on oriental linguistics, made up of original quires of individual works, the bulk of which were never published during his lifetime or are no longer extant. The eccentric scholar Müller (1630-94), Germany's first sinologist, a correspondent of Kircher and the catalyst for Leibniz's interest in the Chinese language, published the first catalogue of the Chinese book collection of the Royal Library in Berlin in 1683. For ten years he is said to have worked with Edmund Castell, professor Arabic at Cambridge, and Brian Walton, Bishop of Chester, on a monumental universal dictionary, but the results of these labours were largely lost in the London fire of 1666. According to Lach, Müller was "one of the most cosmopolitan of [...] world-conscious Europeans" of his time, although he never travelled outside of Europe. He fell out with Kircher over a linguistic issue, and when Chinese writing was described by theologians as a breach of the Second Commandment, his position in Berlin became untenable. Having resigned his position as provost of St. Nicolai in 1685, he relocated to Stettin and spent the remainder of his life with private studies. "By his own ways of publishing he much hampered the production of a bibliography of his works, which would certainly warrant scrutiny. Before his death he destroyed his manuscripts. He negotiated over the sale of his library with numerous universities, but finally, on a whim, gave away a mere 50 books to the Stargard Consistorium in 1692; most of his books and the remainder of his papers he willed to St. Mary's collegiate church in Stettin" (cf. ADB XXII, 513f.). - The present volume documents Müller's interest in universal linguistics, one of the cornerstones of Leibniz's philosophy and a topic that would fascinate many of the great minds of Europe in the early 18th century. Aimed at providing specimens of just about every known writing system in the world, it contains a wealth of engraved script tables complete with grammatical and orthographical notes. Among the languages are Armenian, Ethiopian, Mexican, Sanskrit, and Japanese (of which he provides a pioneering account), as well as Greek, Hebrew, and Arabic (including the use of Arabic script in Persian, Ottoman Turkish, and Tataric). In addition, we find the Lord's Prayer in 85 languages, including Algonquin (a reissue of a work published in 1685), and essays on ancient coins and inscriptions. The final item (which includes a world map unknown to Shirley; a clear and black impression on strong paper) is an unchanged issue of the 1689 edition, providing a universal geographical table of cities, reigns, islands, with short details of mountains, promontories, deserts, oceans, rivers, climates etc. - A fine, nearly unbrowned copy from the library of the Ducs de Luynes at the Chateau de Dampierre: their bookplate reproducing the arms of Charles Marie d'Albert de Luynes (1783-1839), 7th Duc de Luynes, on pastedown. Exceedingly rare; no copy in auction records since 1950. - VD 18, 10224203. Brunet III, 1938f. Graesse IV, 620. OCLC 46594335.
