        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. 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).

His work is considered one of the first comprehensive descripions of the western part of the continent. HOWES L25. "Lahontan's narrative, of considerable value when confined to his actual sojournyings in the Lake region, was unfortunately disfigured by his inserting an account of a pretended trip west of the Mississippi, about as convincing as the legends of the sea-serpents."

"It will not serve as a text book nor a historic guide, but is of much value as a clear and fearless picture of Canada, and the Canadians of his day.For spirit and brightness there is nothing in Canadian literature which approaches it, save some othe earlier letters of Lamothe Cadillac." SABIN 38644.

        "Carte du Canada ou de la Nouvelle France" from Atlas de Geographie

      Paris: Guillaume Delisle, 1703. THE BEST MAP OF THE GREAT LAKES, SHOWING THE DISCOVERIES OF THE SEVENTEENTH CENTURY Copper-plate engraving with original hand outline color: 191/2" x 261/4" References: Conrad E. Heidenreich & Edward H. Dahl, "The French Mapping of North America in the Seventeenth Century," The Map Collector (June, 1982): 9-11; R. V. Tooley, The Mapping of America (London, 1985), 20. This is a foundational map in the history of the mapping of New France, the Great Lakes and the Upper Mississippi, and was closely copied by the best French and English mapmakers of the early eighteenth century. This particular example is an exceedingly rare first-edition, first-issue of Delisle's map, which was re-issued numerous times due to its superb quality and accuracy (this is the only issue of the map to include the address "Rue de Canettes" rather than "Rue de l'Horloge" in the dedication). The map is significant for two important reasons. It is the first printed map to show Detroit only two years after its founding by Cadillac and the rendering of the Great Lakes is remarkably accurate. Among the many other points of interest on the printed map is the improved course of the Ohio River. It was the most accurate map of New France to date and the first to correctly depict the latitude and longitude and grid, based on current astronomical innovations. Guillaume, who had also studied with the great French astronomer, Jean Cassini, was responsible for the scientific calculations of longitude and latitude. The "Carte du Canada ou de la Nouvelle France" marked the culmination of seven years of research by the father-and-son team of Claude and Guillaume Delisle, two of the most distinguished cartographers of the seventeenth century. Their efforts were assisted by reports from trading expeditions in the 1680s, as summarized by Franquelin Joliet, official cartographer of New France. Franquelin's manuscripts, which were compiled from the most recent information collected by the Jesuits, are among the most impressive and valuable historical records of the period. Franquelin's depiction of the Upper Mississippi, stressing its proximity to the waters of Lakes Superior and Michigan and Lanhontan's imaginary geography to the west, was freely accepted by Delisle. Despite the assistance of Franquelin's manuscripts, however, this map is equally a product of the extensive field research of the Delisle's themselves.. First Edition. Book.

Very clean and neat internally. A handsome set. First edition in English of Lahontan's famous narrative, a curious blending of fact and fantasy, to be honored in regard to his account of his travels in the Great Lakes region, but to be accompanied by tongue placed amply in cheek in regard to his claims to have journeyed west of the Mississippi, which Howes states have the veracity of "the legends of the sea serpent." The maps and plates are quite interesting, though the former evidence some confused geography, most notably that of the "Long River" west of the Great Lakes. Despite Lahontan's lapses, this remains one of the most important midwestern travel narratives. The views of Indians and villages, as well as the maps, were engraved by H. Moll under the supervision of the author, and a new map of Newfoundland appears in this edition, as well as material relating to Lahontan's non-American travels.

Varie dedicatorie preliminari, testatine, capilettera e culs-de-lampe istoriati in xilografia. Numerose tabelle e figure n.t. Testo bicolonne. Alcuni restauri alle legature (lavori di tarlo rimarginati). Buon esemplare. Reimpressione di Anversa di questa amplissima opera di astronomia e cronografia del gesuita francese Denis Petau (Orléans, 1583-Parigi, 1652). L'opera, è così ripartita: 1) Opus de Doctrina Temporum, cit. 2) Tomus secundus: in quo Temporum ta historoumena disputantur, tum doctrinae usus atque fructus Chronico Libro traditur. 3) In quo Uranologium sive Systema variorum auctorum, qui de sphera ac sideribus eorumque motibus graece commentati sunt, quorum nomina post prefationem leguntur. Omnia vel graece ac latine nunc primum edita, vel ante non edita; item variarum dissertationum libri VIII. Il trattato, apparso per la prima volta nel 1627 ed in buona parte fondato sui precedenti lavori di cronologia di Joseph Justus Scaliger, godette di larga fortuna, ricevedo gli elogi di Grozio, dell'Huet, del Voss e di molti altri studiosi di fama europea. "Ce grand ouvrage est divisé en treize livres: les huit premiers contiennent les principes de la science des temps; et les quatre suivants, l'usage de la chronologia à l'égard de l'histoire; dans le treizième, le P. Petau a fait l'application de ses principes à une chronique qui finit à l'an 513 de notre ère. Fabricius la trouvait très exacte, et regrettait que personne ne l'eût continuée" (Weiss in Michaud, Biogr. Universelle, XXXIII, 460-461). L'opera ebbe anche influsso anche sul "Discorso sulla storia universale" di Bossuet. Il Petau fu tra i più eminenti teologi francesi del suo tempo, la cui fama si estese a livello europe, tanto che Filippo IV di Spagna volle conferirgli la cattedra di storia al Collegio di Madrid, da lui peraltro rifiutata. Canonico e suddiacono di Orléans, fu professore di retorica a Reims, La Flèche e poi, dal 1621 al 1644, di teologia positiva al Collegio di Clermont di Parigi. L'elenco delle sue opere, che occupa ben 25 colonne del Sommervogel, spazia dalla cronologia alla storia, dalla teologia alla filosofia, ecc., ma le sue maggiori benemerenze rimangono quelle legate all'edizione e alla critica di testi patristici. Graesse, V, 218. Houzeau / Lancaster, 12840. Michaud, cit. Sommervogel, VI, coll. 588-616. Anonimo in Enciclopedia Italiana, XXVI, p. 980.

        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."

[6], 556, [4] pp. Complete with half-title, engraved frontispiece, Thirty-four engraved maps, plates and plans and forty-three engravings in the text.

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.

      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.

      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.
