HEARNE, THOMAS
London: Printed for John Hartley, 1703. 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 BodleianÊ 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.

LAHONTAN, [Louis Armand de Lom d’Arce], Baron de [1666-1716].
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 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. 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. Rare with all twenty- four plates and maps. HOWES L25, "b." CLARK I:111. SABIN 38644. TPL 6357. STREETER SALE 107. PILLING, PROOF-SHEETS 2174. WHEAT TRANSMISSISSIPPI 86, 87.

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.

1703. PUFENDORF, Samuel. Of the Law of Nature and Nations. Eight Books. London: J. Walthoe, R. Wilkin, et al., 1729. 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). With chapters on such fundamental subjects as the will of … [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 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.

London: 1703: Printed by J. Barber, for Jeffery Wale, at the Angel in St. Paul's Church-Yard. Printed: 1703. 1593-1633 Duodecimo, 6.1 x 3.75 inches. The twelfth edition of the Herbert and the eighth edition of the Harvey. A-K12; A-E12, F6. The fine engraved portrait of George Herbert by Stuart is bound before the title. The poems entitled "The Church Porch" and "The Altar" appear in this edition as full paged engravings. This is a nice fresh copy in contemporary paneled calf, rebacked. We may partly distinguish two poets in Herbert. There is, first, the parish priest of early seventeenth-century England who revered his Church as a chaste mother neither 'painted' nor 'undrest;' who deplored the worm of schism eating away the English rose and (to the disturbance of the Cambridge licenser in 1633) saw Religion standing "on tip-toe in our land, Readie to passe to the American strand;" who celebrated with loving particularity and complete security of belief the meaning of God's temple and worship. It is this poet who can be fully appreciated, in Coleridge's works, only by 'an affectionate and dutiful child of the Church;' and it is to Herbert's writings and life that we owe much of our picture of the order, strength, and beauty of seventeenth-century Anglicanism at its best. But church-bells are heard beyond the stars, and the Anglican parish priest merges with the larger poet, with the very human saint who gives fresh and moving utterance to the aspirations and failures of the spiritual life. This is the Herbert we know through 'Aaron,' 'Discipline,' 'The Collar,' 'The Pulley … [Click Below for Full Description]

Poems on Affairs of State,
Printed: 1703. Octavo, 7.6 x 4.4 inches. Fifth edition of the first volume. First edition of the second volume. A6, B-Q8, R4; A4, B-S8. This copy is nicely bound in full modern calf in contemporary style, with a neatly gilt spine and spine label, although it is uniformly browned, with some light waterstaining and worming, it is a good copy. This edition contains the amusing "On King Charles"by John Wilmot The period following the restoration of Charles II was marked by a rise of political and ecclesiastical satire. The public was eager for pamphlets and gibes of any nature - almost all of which were produced anonymously. When authors' names weres attached they were very possibly apocryphal and the individual pieces were rarely connected with the author's name. The Licensing Act, by which the government could attempt to control these productions, expired for a time in 1679; was renewed with little effect in 1685; and expired permanently in 1695. These satires were collected and published in various collections." (Cameron) This book is the second volume of what was to be a four volume set, and one of the more important of those collections. The collection is interesting both for this wealth of primary historical comment, as well as for its literary merit-although that merit is often found to be exaggerated; despite the genre's lofty intent, these works at times devolved from satire into invective.

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. 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.

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's first Lecturer in Ancient Greek. He served in many college offices and in 1569 was elected as one of the University'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. … [Click Below for Full Description]
