DE L'ISLE, Guillaume (1675-1726)
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'Isle'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'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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

LONITZER, A.
Ulm, Daniel Bartolomae, 1703. Folio (302 x 191mm). pp. (4), 750, (24, index). Title printed in red and black with woodcut printer's device, handcoloured woodcut portrait of the author, and over 1200 beautifully contemporary handcoloured woodcuts. Contemporary blindstamped panelled pigskin, with armorial device on front- & back cover. A beautiful, interleaved, contemporary coloured copy of this later and enlarged edition of Lonitzer's famous herbal. The first German edition appeared 1557 and was published by Egenolph. It is quite unusual to find a relatively late edition of this work with such fine colouring. The herbal was very popular and the last edition appeared in 1783. "No other botanical work of the period had a success comparable to that of Egenolph's herbals of which that of Lonitzer is the most important and valuable. It passed through numerous editions (in Latin and German) until late in the 18th century" (l'Art Ancient, Early Books on Medicine p. 350). "In 1557, according to Anderson, Lonitzer took Rösslin's 'Kreuterbuch', which was itself a reworking of the 'Gart der Gesundheit' and the 'Distillierbuich', Dorsten's reworking of the herbal portion of Rösslin's work known as the 'Botanicon', re-edited, combined, and reworked them with additions of his own to form the present work (i.e the first German 1557 edition)" (Johnston, The Cleveland Herbal... 83). 984 of the woodcuts concern plants, 255 depict mammals, reptiles, birds and insects, some 50 woodcuts depict metals, minerals, corals and precious stones.

He graduated doctor of medicine at Leyden [sic], 2oth August, 1675, and was admitted a Licentiate of the College of Physicians 26th June, 1676. He is stated in the Annals to have been created doctor of medicine by the archbishop of Canterbury, 16th May, 1663, and to have been admitted ad eundem, at Cambridge, 5th October, 1671. The Annals at this period were, however, so carelessly kept by the Registrar, Dr Whistler, that but little reliance should be placed in them. His incorporation at Cambridge is not recorded in the Graduati Cantabrigiensis. He was admitted an Honorary Fellow at the College 30th September, 1680. Dr Gibson was physician-general to the army; and dying on the 16th July, 1722, aged 75, was buried in the ground adjoining the Foundling Hospital, belonging to St George the Martyr, Queens-square [sic]. He married Anne, the youngest daughter of Richard Cromwell, the short-lived Protector. She died 7th December, 1727 (William Munk M. D. 1861, p. 387).

[BROWN, Thornas]
2 pp. Small folio, broadside format, unbound. [Colophon]: London: published by John Nutt, 1703. First edition of this amusing and affectionate poetical tribute to England's first prominent auctioneer of books and art, composed shortly after his death. Millington began his career as a bookseller, and he first appears in the Term Catalogues in 1670 as the publisher of William Seaman's Grammatica Linguae Turcicae. His name can also be found in the imprints of another half a dozen 17th-century books, but it was as an auctioneer that he became famous. He set up regular sales at the "Vendu" in Covent Garden, "perhaps the first established auction house in England independent of the outroper, an officer under the crown who nominally held a monopoly on all public sales by auction. Millington travelled extensively to promote his auction sales. Although most were held in London (where, from 1695 until his death, he was based at St Bartholomew Close) he also conducted auctions in Cambridge, Tunbridge Wells, Norwich, Bury St Edmunds, Kings Lynn, Bath, Oxford, and Gloucester. He was a master of the fine art of flattery, and the prefaces to his sales catalogues frequently commend the judicious taste and learned erudition of his buyers."-ODNB. Ned Ward, in his Step to Stirbitch-Fair (1700), includes a passage on the humor with which Millington conducted sales, and John Dunton calls him "a man of remarkable elocution, wit, sense, and modesty," and adds: "He was originally a bookseller, which he left off, being better cut out for an auctioneer; he had a quick wit, and a wonderful fl … [Click Below for Full Description]

Il 31 dicembre 1578, in piena guerra di religione, Enrico III fond? l'Ordre du Saint Esprit, il cui scopo era di proteggere il Re di Francia, in quanto persona sacra. Il monarca scelse il nome di Spirito Santo per questo Ordine, riferendosi alla sua data di nascita, alla sua incoronazione sul trono di Polonia e, in seguito, alla sua incoronazione su quello di Francia, tre avvenimenti realizzatesi nel giorno della Pentecoste. Bench? questo Ordine fosse inizialmente riservato ai pi? alti dignitari del regno, il re Enrico IV permise a un numero, seppur ristretto, di monarchi e di grandi signori stranieri di confessione cattolica, di entrarvi.

HEARNE, THOMAS.
London: Printed for John Hartley, 1703. First edition. 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.

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 Bell … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lahontan, Louis Armand, Baron de
Printed for H. Bonwicke [et al], London, 1703. Two volumes. [24],280; [2],302,[13]pp. plus twenty-four maps and plates (many folding). 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'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.

Maundrell, Henry
Printed at the Theater, Oxford, 1703. 12mo, 7 1/2 by 4 3/4, 142 pages, plus 7 unpag pps letters of testimony. Fresh, and historically accurate full calf binding by Fetterer, banded, with gilt lettering and decoration. Foxing to engraved title page, replaced front and rear blank prelims, otherwise, tightly bound, with 9 plates, five are folding. This is actually an uncharacteristically fine copy of a most elusive book in travel and exploration. Plates are uniformly excellent, unsplit foldouts, very sharp impressions, any foxing is trivial. Pages have scattered foxing, esp to the edges, mostly minor other than the engraved title page and the page following, but are generally clean, I find no rips or bends. A rare first edition, uncatalogued by WorldCat / OCLC, although subsequent editions are well represented. Arguably the most important book in the history and culture of travel or tourism, Maundrell writes of his three month journey in a unique way. Previous travel books were generally written from the point of religious fervor, or in vague and fantastic prose, but this book is an accurate description of his travels, his journal, amended for publication, even to offer precise dimensions of the monuments and sights, in his writings and illustrations. This book marks the delineation of the period of tourism per se, previously only for pilgrimages, exploration and the very rich, to the post Maundrell times where more common people could travel for pleasure and excitement, ergo, the start of the modern age of tourism. The book was a posthumous success, 7 editions to 1749, presum … [Click Below for Full Description]

Guillaume De L’Isle
Published in Paris in 1703. A wonderfully detailed copper-plate engraved map with outline color of Canada and the Great Lakes by Guillaume De L’Isle published in Paris in 1703. Overall this map measures 26”x20.5”. It has been cut into 12 squares backed onto blue linen which fold into a portfolio. This map provided the most accurate rendering of the Great Lakes available at the time, with the lakes fully enclosed and properly placed in longitude and latitude. Despite some ambiguous details to the west, derived from Lahontan's theories, the depiction of the Great Lakes, their relation to Hudson's Bay, and of the rivers and lakes of the north was better than anything prior. An epic cartouche containing the titling and decorated with a beaver, indigenous peoples (one of whom is bearing a scalp), Jesuit explorers and centered with the French crown and coat of arms. De L'Isle was the best mapmaker of the period, enjoying the reportage from the French network of travellers, missionaries, merchants and military adventurers concerning their activities around the world. Overall this map is in very good condition with some light foxing and staining throughout.

Rushworth, John
London, 1703. Book. Illus. by Frontispiece in Volume One, & Engraved Portraits of James I, Charles I and George Villiers.. Very Good Plus. Full-Leather. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A superb memoir of British politics 1618 to 1648, a very early beginning of political science., this first edition in 8 vo. size published between 1703 and 1708. No printer's imprint or publisher listed, only "London (and the date in Roman numerals)". The first editions of this work appeared in eight parts between 1659 and 1701, in folio size. Sometimes called "the Rushworth Papers", they were attacked by royalist writers for alleged partiality. Despite the truth of the charge, it is still a useful reference for the reign of Charles I, who declared war on Parliament in 1642, beginning England's Civil Wars and the rise of Oliver Cromwell. Rushworth became Secretary of the New Model Army and served General Fairfax, under Cromwell. When the King was captured, tried , and executed, Rushworth made a detailed record of the events which led to the King's demise. His attacks on the King were later to be echoed by Thomas Paine and Thomas Jefferson in the American frustration with George III, leading to United States independence. Rushworth remained close to Cromwell, becoming his personal secretary and writing the plans to abolish the monarchy. He was a long time Member of Parliament from Berwick. Among his friends were John Milton, John Owen, John Bunyan and Samuel Pepys. When Charles II was restored to the monarchy, Rushworth was among those whom the new King lashed out at for the execu … [Click Below for Full Description]

LONITZER, A.
1703. Ulm, Daniel Bartolomae, 1703. Folio (302 x 191mm). pp. (4), 750, (24, index). Title printed in red and black with woodcut printer's device, handcoloured woodcut portrait of the author, and over 1200 beautifully contemporary handcoloured woodcuts. Contemporary blindstamped panelled pigskin, with armorial device on front- & back cover. A beautiful, interleaved, contemporary coloured copy of this later and enlarged edition of Lonitzer's famous herbal. The first German edition appeared 1557 and was published by Egenolph. It is quite unusual to find a relatively late edition of this work with such fine colouring. The herbal was very popular and the last edition appeared in 1783. "No other botanical work of the period had a success comparable to that of Egenolph's herbals of which that of Lonitzer is the most important and valuable. It passed through numerous editions (in Latin and German) until late in the 18th century" (l'Art Ancient, Early Books on Medicine p. 350). "In 1557, according to Anderson, Lonitzer took Rösslin's 'Kreuterbuch', which was itself a reworking of the 'Gart der Gesundheit' and the 'Distillierbuich', Dorsten's reworking of the herbal portion of Rösslin's work known as the 'Botanicon', re-edited, combined, and reworked them with additions of his own to form the present work (i.e the first German 1557 edition)" (Johnston, The Cleveland Herbal... 83). 984 of the woodcuts concern plants, 255 depict mammals, reptiles, birds and insects, some 50 woodcuts depict metals, minerals, corals and precious stones.

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 h … [Click Below for Full Description]

Folio, modern beige cloth, raised bands, printed paper spine label. $1600.Fourth edition in English of Pufendorf'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, Pufendorf'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 conception… 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).

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 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. 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.
