1703. Antique Map, titled: 'Regni Mexicani seu Nova Hispaniae Ludovicianus, N. Angliae, Carolinae, Virginiae et Pensylvaniae ( ).' - This superb map covers the region from the Great Lakes and Nova Scotia through Central America, the Caribbean and Venezuela, and from New Mexico (naming Taos and Santa Fe) to the eastern seaboard. The map is based largely on Delisle's map of 1703 (Carte du Mexique et de la Floride), depicting the social, political, and economic outcomes from the War of the Spanish Succession, also known as Queen Anne's War. The British colonies are shown confined east of the Appalachians and extending south almost to St. Augustine, deep into Spanish-claimed territory. The map itself is filled with settlement place names, Indian tribes and villages. In present-day Texas, Corpus Christi and El Paso (el passo) are noted. Sea routes of treasure fleets from Vera Cruz and Cartagena to Havana and Spain are outlined. Richly embellished, a fine title cartouche depicts two native figures with items to trade, such as hides and blankets. In the Atlantic, there is a large scene of extensive gold mining operations, with Indians bringing their treasures to fill the Europeans' chest. Off the Pacific coast of Mexico is yet another opulent engraving of a raging sea battle, reminiscent of the battles fought in Queen Anne's War. Engraving / etching with contemporary hand colouring on hand laid (verge) paper. Description: Source unknown, to be determined.Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Homann Heirs' after an anonymous artist.

Saint Paul's Church-Yard: Jeffery Wale, 1703. Jeffery Wale, Saint Paul's Church-Yard, 1703. Reprint. Hardcover (Full Leather). Good Condition. The book came to me in its constituent parts, and has been reassembled by a bookbinder in dark brown leather, with all the faults inherent in the book still present. Page edges darkened, occasional marginalia, several pages have short tears repaired on their external margin. But surprisingly bright and clean, with a lack of foxing that more modern books have a tendency to. Please forgive the fingers and the photographs, but being freshly rebound, it is somewhat tight. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Please refer to accompanying picture (s). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1.0. Category: Poetry; Inventory No: 0271772. .

Christiaan Huygens (1629-1695) était un mathématicien, un astronome et un physicien néerlandais. Il est l'inventeur du télescope aérien, ainsi appelé parce que l'oculaire et l'objectif n'étaient plus reliés par un tube continu. Cet instrument permettait "de se passer du tube en disposant convenablement les lentilles le long d'un simple support longitudinal, destiné à les maintenir dans la position convenable. Dès cet instant, le problème de la construction des lunettes astronomiques se trouva transformé. Aucune limite de dimension n'était plus imposé aux lunettes dites aériennes; tout au moins ces limites ne dépendaient plus que de l'habileté des opticiens à tailler des verres de très grande distance focale" (DAUMAS, Les instruments scientifiques aux XVII° et XVIII° siècles, p.46). Ce télescope permit à Huygens de découvrir la lune de Saturne et d'observer la véritable forme des anneaux de cette planète. Ces ouvrages accordent une grande place à la fabrication du verre et au polissage des lentilles, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Plumier, Charles
Paris: J. Boudot, 1703. [8],52,[4],21,[1]pp. plus forty engraved plates. Titlepage vignette. Quarto. Contemporary French mottled calf, spine richly gilt, raised bands, gilt leather label, a.e.g. Spine rubbed with some gilt flaking, spine ends expertly repaired. Old stain in fore- and upper edge 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 in 1693 published 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. Plumier describes and names 106 new genera of American plants herein 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.

[ii], 44 pp. Later blind half-vellum over marbled boards.= The rare original edition of Herman Boerhaave's academic oration at Leiden University, held in the university's auditorium in September, 1703. At that point in time, Boerhaave (1668-1738), arguably the most renowned Dutch scientist (working both in medicine and botany), was waiting for the next available vacancy at the most prestigious university in the Netherlands (and his Alma Mater), having rejected an offer by Groningen University in the same year. In 1714, he became rector of the university. While in Leiden, Peter the Great of Russia, Voltaire, and Linnaeus were among his visitors. OCLC records less than ten copies.

Lenton, John, composer (1657-1719).
[London, 1703]. Oblong 8vo. Musical manuscript in English, on paper written in a single cursive hand in brown ink, four staves to a page. 12 leaves: blank, title, dedication, 11 pp. of music on 6 leaves, 3 blanks. Dedication to Queen Anne on second recto. In a contemporary morocco binding, exuberantly tooled and gilt by Robert Steel, arguably the finest binder in England at the time; board edges gilt, marbled endleaves, all edges gilt. An exquisite musical manuscript, composed and bound for royal presentation on New Years' Day (then celebrated on Lady Day, March 25). Inscribed to Queen Anne of England. Signed "J.L." at the end, the pieces are marked "Overture", "Minuett" (bass), "Minuett" and "Scotch Air", one passage to be played "slow". - The violinist, singer and composer Lenton joined the ensemble of royal musicians, known as the King's Musick, in 1681 under Charles II and played at the coronations of James II and of William and Mary (cf. New Grove X, 665). As violinist, Lenton accompanied William to Holland in 1691 and contributed to the royal musical repertoire. He wrote incidental music for some dozen plays between 1682 and 1705 and accumulated the offices of Gentleman Extraordinary at the Royal Chapel (1685) and Groom of the Vestry (1708). The binder Robert Steel (fl. 1668-1711) apprenticed with Samuel Mearne and took possession of his tools after his death in 1686. In turn, one of Steel's workmen, Thomas Elliott, secured Mearne's tools and became a principal binder for the Harleian Library. - In fine condition: the splendid binding shows a repeated flower-and-folia … [Click Below for Full Description]

BUONANNI (or BONANNI), Filippo
Added engraved title & 40 engraved plates (three are folding). 1 p.l., 106 pp., one blank leaf. Small 4to, cont. English panelled calf (corners renewed, rebacked, some dampstaining in gutter at foot to first ten leaves). Rome: A. de Rubeis, 1703. First separate edition, originally published as the second part of the author's Observationes circa viventia (1691). Our edition - which is actually the original printing of the second part with a new title-page - is very rare with only one copy located by WorldCat. Buonanni (1738-1725), one of the most learned Jesuits of his time, was a pupil of Athanasius Kircher, and succeeded his master as teacher of mathematics at the Collegium Romanum. This work is one of the earliest Italian treatises on microscopy. It contains interesting observations on early microscopes and a precise description of Buonanni's own compound microscopes, which are illustrated on two plates. The rest of the plates show objects seen through the microscope, including a number of illustrations of insects. "The quality of his illustrations of various insects was excellent - particularly those of the fly, louse, mite, flea, and mosquito. Indeed, his drawings of the Culex pipiens (common house mosquito) are the best of the seventeenth century)."-D.S.B., II, p. 591. Very good copy.

MAGNITSKII, Leontii Filipovich].
Moskva Sinodalna 1703 - Folio (28 x 17 cm). ll. 326, including title, printed in Cyrillic letters in red and black within typographic borders, with engraved frontispiece and plate by Mikhail Karnovskii and 3 folding letterpress tables, numerous woodcut figures in text; some leaves remargined and with tears mostly to inner margin, occasionally with minor loss of text, lacking 1 plate (last plate), red wax seals to upper fly leaf, title and first page. Near contemporary half calf over marbled boards, spine with blind tooled decor in compartments; worn. One of the most important books printed during the reign of Peter the Great. Leontii Magnitskii (1669 – 1739), a prominent Russian scientist and professor at the School of Mathematics and Navigation, compiled the present work as a kind of encyclopaedia of exact sciences on the orders of Peter the Great, issued in February 1701. Magnitskii included the most up to date information on arithmetic, algebra, geometry, astronomy and navigation with the aim of 'educat[ing] Russian young men and people of all the ranks and ages.' Even more significantly, it was here that he introduced Arabic, rather than traditional Cyrillic, numbers for the first time. Lomonosov himself used this work in his studies, referring to it as 'the gates of knowledge.' Published in an edition of 2400 copies, it was used widely as a textbook for almost a century, and is something of a rarity, especially when complete. Magnitskii's work reflects the progressive thinking that started to dominate during the reign of Peter the Great. Drage 390; Sopikov 99; Fek … [Click Below for Full Description]
