"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."

        AEsop's fables, in English & Latin, interlineary, for the benefit of those who not having a master, would learn either of these tongues. With sculptures.

      London: Printed for A. and J. Churchil, 1703.. [24], 337 pp. Sm. 8vo. Modern English panel binding to period, in mottled calf, raised bands, florets in blind, red morocco spine label. First edition. Illus. with 5 plates. ESTC T84704. Attig: John Locke Bibliography 669. Lowndes I: p.16 (2nd ed.) Locke had written, concerning education, that he wanted "some easy pleasant book, one that would not "fill [a child's] head with perfectly useless thrumpery or lack the principle of Vice and Folly.. To this purpose I think Aesop's Fables the best, which being stories apt to delight and enchant a child, may yet afford useful reflections to a grown man." Thus Latin could be taught "writing the English translation (made as literal as it can be) in one Line, and the Latin Words which answer each of them, just over it in another, " (Some Thoughts Concerning Education, 1693.). But even earlier than that essay, Locke had conceived the project, sending Edward Clarke just such an example in early 1691. However, the work did not finally take shape until the end of Locke's life, when he worked with William Grigg (the son of a friend and a Cambridge don) and his publishers, the Churchills. Finally published in November 1703, a year before his death, the work made no mention of Locke. Not until a second edition appeared in 1723 did Locke's name appear. It has been suggested that the text as a simplified version of Charles Hoole?s 1657 Latin-English version, (Robert H. Horwitz and Judith B. Finn, "Locke?s Aesop?s Fables, " Locke Newsletter, Summer, 1975). But in any event, the work certainly influenced how and what children read. "This book, by the celebrated Locke, is little known and is not include in the editions of his works, " Lowndes (The Bibliographer's Manual of English Literature). Rare. Only two incomplete copies and one second edition at auction in the last half century. 19th century annotations on rector and verso of first blank with small tear, damp stain to first 2 dozen leaves, mostly on the preliminary matter, minor worming to margin of B4, occasional browning otherwise very good in a fine binding to period.

Contemporary French mottled calf, spine richly gilt, raised bands, gilt leather label, a.e.g. Spine rubbed with some of the gilt flaking, spine ends expertly repaired. Old stain in upper edge and foredge of text and plates. Some foxing. A good copy. An important work of American botany by one of the outstanding early investigators of Caribbean plants. Father Charles Plumier (1646-1704) was a monk of the order of St. Francesco di Paula. Called "an important botanical traveller" by Hunt, he was a close friend and associate of the great botanist, Tournefort, before turning his attention to the Caribbean. He made at least two trips to the French Antilles and published, in 1693, DESCRIPTION DES PLANTES DE L'AMERIQUE. The present work is the result of his third American trip overall, when he visited Guadeloupe, Martinique, and the coast of Brazil. One hundred six new genera of American plants are described and named here for the first time. The finely detailed engraved plates depict the palm tree, magnolia, guanabanus, and scores of other tropical fruits and flowers. After Plumier's death in 1704, all of his drawings passed to the Cabinet des Estampes de Roi and served as the basis for the PLANTARUM AMERICANARUM FASCICULUS X (Amsterdam, 1715-60), in which he described hundreds of plants for the first time, including the Begonia.

Burchett served on Russell's flagship at the battle of Barfleur in 1692 during the War of the Grand Alliance, and in 1693 became Deputy Judge Advocate of the Fleet, replacing Samuel Pepys in that office.

        Regni Sueciæ Tabula Generalis, divisa in Sueciæ, Gotiæque Regna Finniæ Ducatum Lapponiam, Livoniam Ingriamque et in omnes subiacentes provincias

      Amsterdam: De Wit, c. 1703. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour. Mild soiling, otherwise, excellent. 21 x 24 1/2 inches. A very fine map of Sweden, Finland and the Baltic States, by one of the period's most prominent cartographers Frederick de Wit's finely engraved maps give the viewer the impression of great clarity and precision. The unperfected geography is more than compensated for by the near perfect rendering. This handsome map of the kingdom of Sweden depicts the country at the time of Charles XI (1660-97) and Charles XII (1697-1718). During this period, the Swedish monarchy was strong and territorially immense--much of the land depicted here was ruled by the Swedish king including Livonia, Finland and Gotland. By the end of Charles XII's reign, however, Sweden was no longer the strongest northern state and it began gradually to lose territory. Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici, De Wit 116.

        Exactissima Asiæ Delineatio, in Præcipuas Regiones, Cæterasq[ue] Partes divisa

      Amsterdam: Allard, c. 1703. Engraved with full period colour. Cartouche after Phillip Tideman (1657-1702). One repaired marginal tear, left margin, not affecting image. Glue residue in bottom left, top left and top right corners, all marginal. 19 5/8 x 23 1/8 inches. 21 x 25 inches. This masterful map of Asia represented a vast amount of recently gleaned geographical knowledge. The difference between the European conception of Asia in 1600 and that of 1700 is remarkable. As one would expect, the first improvements were coastal. The configurations of Japan, China, the East Indies and Indochina had vastly improved, and in some cases (China for example) accurate knowledge of the interior was being pieced together. In the case of China, this geographical understanding derived primarily from existing Chinese maps to which the Jesuits were given access. The most recent new Asiatic knowledge came from Nicolas Witsen, prominent politician, acquaintance of Peter the Great, and maker of a map of Siberia, incorporated here. Witsen is credited in the map. The topography of mountain ranges and forests and the lettering are beautifully engraved, and the whole continent is depicted with great clarity, as is characteristic of all Allard's maps. The cartouche, drawn by Philip Tideman and again, beautifully engraved, shows an Asian potentate before whom Asian artworks, products, exotic animals and flowers are displayed.

      Paris., 1703. Copper engraving. Original colour. Good condition - slight dark patches in lower corner margins and foxing in margins. Size: 65.2 x 50 cm. Delisle was an important French cartographer of the early 18th century. He held the position of First Royal Geographer to the King. This is an interesting map of the lower section of South America including Paraguay and Chili and from Peru in the north to the Diego Ramírez islands in the south. In the west are the Isles de Fernand and in the west an island which is cited as "large island discovered by Mr de la Roche in 1675". Interestingly what are now called the Falkland Islands are then known as the Sebald Isles after a Dutchman visited them in 1599/1600.

Text is crisp and bright. <br><br> An early English translation of DuPin&#39;s Nouvelle bibliotheque des auteurs ecclesiastiques. In this work, Du Pin attempted to cover early church biography, literary criticism, and the history of church dogma. Du Pin corresponded with William Wake, the English Archbishop about the possible unity of the English and French churches (Du Pin was a Gallican). He also worked on a plan to unify the Roman and Greek churches while in residence at Czar Peter I&#39;s French estate. It would be interesting to consider what effect Du Pin&#39;s synthesis of early Christian teachings had on his yearning for an united Christendom. The influence of Du Pin&#39;s work was not limited to a French audience, and was an important work for the Anglican Church. See Di Mauro&#39;s 2012 dissertation, Gallican Vision, Anglican Perspectives: The Reception of the Works of Louis Ellies Du Pin into England.

        Reliquiae Bodleianae:

      London - John Hartley, 1703 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. The scarce first edition of Reliquiae Bodleianae, edited by Thomas Hearne. Finely bound in late eighteenth century full calf with gilt lettering and decoration. With an armorial nameplate for William Carr on the front pastedown. Sir Thomas Bodley, 1545 1613, was an English diplomat and scholar, and founder of the Bodleian Library, Oxford. He was educated at Magdalen College, Oxford, and was admitted as fellow to Merton College. He began lecturing at Merton, and in 1565 he was formally appointed as the college&#39;s first Lecturer in Ancient Greek. He served in many college offices and in 1569 was elected as one of the University&#39;s junior proctors. On his return from European travels, Bodley was appointed gentleman-usher to Queen Elizabeth and he entered Parliament as member for Portsmouth in 1584. He was later to become a diplomat, but after years of intrigue, he retired from public life in 1596. From 1598, Bodley devoted his life to the library project that was to become the famous Bodleian library at Oxford. He was knighted in 1604. Thomas Hearne, 1678 - 1735, was an English antiquarian. He attracted attention at St Edmund Hall, Oxford, and was employed to compare manuscripts. In 1699 he was made assistant keeper of the Bodleian library, and in 1712 was appointed second keeper. As a nonjuror he refused to take the oaths of allegiance to King George I, and early in 1716 he was deprived of his librarianship. However, he continued to reside in Oxford, and occupied himself in editing the English chroniclers. Hearn refused several important academic positions, including the librarianship of the Bodleian and the Camden professorship of ancient history, rather than take the oaths. William Carr, 1862 - 1925, was a biographer for the Dictionary of National Biography, historian, magistrate and Deputy Lieutenant for Norfolk, England. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. The hinges are just starting. The front inner hinge is slightly strained. There is some mild wear to the extremities, including some mild bumping and rubbing. Internally the pages have some browning and scattered spots. A small section from the lower right-hand corner of page 309is missing not affecting text. Overall the condition is very good..

Spine ends worn, cracked down center of spine. One signature loose, scattered foxing and tanning. Good. In a folding cloth box, gilt leather label. The present copy bears the ownership inscription on the front free endpaper: "Mary Atkinson her book 1750." Second edition of Bishop&#39;s work, but the first combined edition of the two parts issued separately in 1661 and 1667, and the first edition to contain the appendix, TRUTH AND INNOCENCY DEFENDED; AGAINST FALSEHOOD AND ENVY..., by John Whiting, which has its own separate titlepage and imprint. Bishop&#39;s work is one of the great and reliable accounts of the Quaker persecutions in New England. While himself a resident of England, he was in receipt of correspondence from Friends in America, much of which forms the basis of this work. On Dec. 19, 1660 the Colony of Massachusetts sent to Prince Charles a petition defending the hanging of three Friends in their legal jurisdiction. Bishop was much incensed by this attempted defense, and this catalogue of horrors was the result. "Most exhaustive contemporary indictment of God-fearing Puritans driven by insensate religious fervor to sickening brutalities against other religious fanatics who dared to differ from themselves. Witch- hunting was bad; this was worse" - Howes. SABIN 5631. CHURCH 571, 598 (refs). EUROPEAN AMERICANA 703/16. HOWES B481, "aa."

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

      London,: James Knapton, 1703.. Octavo, with a folding frontispiece map, four maps and ten plates and tables; publishers advertisements at end; a few spots but a good crisp copy in 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.Hill, 420.

Index. The English edition has an added map of Newfoundland, not in the first French edition published the same year. His work is considered one of the first comprehensive descripions of the western part of the continent. HOWES L25. "Lahontan&#39;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."

        Carte du Canada ou de la Nouvelle France et des Decouvertes qui ont ete faites

      Paris: 1703 [but circa 1718]. Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline. 20 x 26 3/4 inches. "One of the most outstanding maps of Canada of the 17th and early 18th centuries" (Kershaw). "Del&#39;Isle&#39;s map of Canada is one of the most outstanding maps of Canada of the 17th and early 18th centuries. Typical of all his work, the information that went into his map of Canada was the result of careful and painstaking research" (Kershaw, I, p. 278). The numerous trading posts and missions of New France and the major towns of the adjacent British colonies are labeled. The area around Hudson&#39;s Bay is shown to be inhabited by native tribes referred to as the Christinaux or Kilistinons, referring to their conversion to the Christian faith, while Labrador is home to the Eskimaux. Interestingly, the map features a number of notes specifically referring to the names of explorers and the dates in which they discovered certain places, such as the reference to Nouveau Danemarc, discovered by the Danish explorer Jan Munk in 1619. The depiction of the upper Mississippi and Ohio basins is also quite detailed, noting the position of the French fort of St. Louis or Crevecouer near the present-day site of Peoria, Illinois. Perhaps the most fascinating aspect of the map is its portrayal of the Rivière Longue, one of the most sensational and enduring cartographic misconceptions ever devised. This imaginary river was reported to flow from the Pays des Gnacsitares in the far west, promising the best route through the interior of the continent. A short distance over some mountains lies a long salt water lake, that is supposedly connected to the Pacific Ocean. It is a product of the imagination of the Baron Lahontan, an entertaining and roguish French adventurer, whose best- selling travel narrative Nouveaux voyages dans l&#39;Amérique septentrionale (1703) convinced many of the world&#39;s greatest intellects of the existence of this mythical waterway. Nine states of the map were published in the 18th century, plus several derivatives. The present example is the fifth state, with De L&#39;Isle&#39;s title "Geographe du Roy" added below his name in the cartouche.

Lacks the advertisement leaf at the end of the second volume. Modern calf by Sangorski and Sutcliffe, ruled in gilt, spines gilt, a.e.g. Small neat repairs to the verso of several maps and plates. Very clean and neat internally. A handsome set. First edition in English of Lahontan&#39;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&#39;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&#39;s non-American travels.

        Il Decameron di Messer Giovanni Boccacci Cittadino Fiorentino.

      Amsterdam (ma Napoli), s.e., 1703. 1703 In 12° grande, pagg. pp.(28) 811 (1) elegante legatura ottocentesca in pelle, filetti ai piatti e al dorso, titoli e grande fregio in oro al dorso, frontespizio stampato in nero e rosso con incisa la sfera armillare, capilettera decorati. "Nitida edizione eseguita in bella carta. Nell'«Avviso a chi legge» si dice copia della ventisettana. Che sia stata impressa in Napoli, ce ne assicura il Manni nella «Storia del Decamerone», pag. 662" (Gamba 1965: pag. 60). In realtà nell'Avviso viene detto che si è condotta l'edizione sulla ventisettana discostandosene in quei pochi luoghi in cui sembrava scorretta, tanto che l'editore afferma: "...noi potremo con giusto titolo vantarci, che mai il Decamerone sia uscito dalle stampe più compito e corretto, che nella presente edizione si vede" (dall'«Avviso a chi legge»). Scarabocchi a inchiostro alle ultime pagine bianche. Esemplare in ottimo stato di conservazione. Prima edizione napoletana. (Gamba 1965: pag. 60 n. 184; Graesse 1950: vol. I pag. 415)

        Linguarum Vett. septentrionalium thesaurus grammatico-criticus et archaeologicus.

      Oxford, Sheldonian Theatre, 1703-1705.. Two volumes, folio, large paper copy (442 x 272mm), pp. [16], xlviii, [18], 235, [9], 111, [5], 92; [viii], 159, [3], 161-188, [18], 326, [56], with fine engraved frontispiece portrait by Whyte, engraved armorial dedication, 8 part-titles with vignettes, 27 plates (2 folding) of alphabets, coins etc, many text illustrations throughout, 5 full-page, engraved head-pieces and decorated initials, pages of runic printing; early eighteenth-century mottled and diced russia, sides with a rich gilt border, spine gilt in compartments with olive lettering pieces, marbled endpapers and differentially coloured edges; very lightly rubbed, with occasional dust-soiling at head; from the library of the Earls of Macclesfield, with North Library bookplates, a very fine large paper set. First edition, large paper copy, of the greatest work on the ancient Northern languages of the eighteenth century - perhaps, indeed, the most comprehensive account ever published. The present copy is in excellent condition, a crisp and clean large paper copy. Hickes' work embraces not only the grammar and vocabulary of Anglo-Saxon but all Teutonic dialects from Moeso-Gothic to Icelandic. The valuable accounts of Scandinavian manuscripts were supplied by the Swedish scholar Peringski'ld and by Thwaites' correspondents Olaus Rudbeck and Jonas Salanus. In addition the Thesaurus contains a dissertation on Anglo-Saxon law and government, a treatise on Anglo-Saxon and Anglo-Danish coinage (by Andrew Fountaine) and a catalogue of manuscripts containing Anglo-Saxon (by Humphrey Wanley). The scale and breadth of Hickes' achievement has been well appreciated by contemporaries as much as modern scholars, who have always heaped it with praise. A book 'to which the learned world never yet saw anything like or comparable in this kind of literature' (Wotton in his epitome of 1708), which 'never had nor will have its equal' (Ritson in 1782) and which 'scholars will continue to use or neglect at their peril' (N.R. Ker in 1951), the Thesaurus has never lacked for admirers. 'The Thesaurus begins with grammars of the Northern languages, seeking by superbly detailed comparative philology to place Anglo-Saxon among its kindred tongues. In the supplementary treatise directed to Bartholomew Shower under the title Dissertatio Epistolaris, Hickes examines critically for the first time the foundations of the study Anglo-Saxon antiquities. 'The learning of the Dissertatio thus found expression not only in connection with its main theme, but also in numerous digressions which, even to-day, carry the full weight of the magisterial scholarship that informed them. The contributions thus made to knowledge are not to be assessed in a paragraph. Even in its main arguments the scope of the treatise was comprehensive' (Douglas p. 91). The treatment of Anglo-Saxon charters as a fundamental source for the history of the time was revolutionary: many forgeries or copies were for the first time denounced, and proper chronologies based on palaeographical fact could be established. 'It was Hickes who began the proper investigation of Anglo-Saxon charters' (Douglas p. 92). Two further portions by outside scholars were added by Hickes: a discourse on Anglo-Saxon coins by Andrew Fountaine, and a catalogue of surviving Anglo-Saxon manuscripts by Harley's librarian Humphrey Wanley. Wanley's work is of immense value today for containing the only detailed descriptions of some of the Cottonian MSS which perished in the fire of 1731. Douglas rates it thus: 'from the quality of its scholarship and the extent of its range it retains its value as an indispensable work of reference, and is to-day almost as useful as when it was written.' The book was originally intended to be bound in two volumes, but it was found that the large paper copies were too heavy and cumbersome and most of them, as well as most of those in small paper, were bound in three parts. This is an impressive exception and a survival remarkable in this condition. Only a small number of the large paper copies, sold at five guineas, were printed, intended, as in this case, 'for the libraries of princes and the private libraries of great men'.
