(GRAEVIUS, Joannes Georgius)
31 pp. 8vo, cont. calf-backed marbled boards. Leyden: P. van der Aa, 1703. First edition and rare. Graevius (1632-1703), German classical scholar and critic, was professor at Utrecht. He had a high reputation as a teacher and was a particular favorite of William III of England, who made him historiographer royal. His editions of the classics marked a distinct advance in scholarship. He is best remembered for his Thesaurus Antiquitatum Romanorum (1694-99), which is the first encyclopedic compilation of the knowledge of the ancient Roman world. His friend and colleague Jacobus Gronovius (1645-1716), Dutch classical scholar, published a complementary work -- Thesaurus Antiquitatum Graecarum (1697-1702) -- which dealt with ancient Greece. Both are compilations of earlier works by more than 120 contributors; they became standard reference tools throughout the 18th century. Following Graevius's death in early 1703, Peter van der Aa, the publisher of the two thesauri, decided to stimulate sales by issuing the present catalogue. It was designed to be a guide to the contents of each series. It lists the contributors and their texts found in the two thesauri. References to each series, volume, and page number are given. Fine copy. .

Initial advertisement leaf present. · Comments: Sole edition of this second part. Brown was a clerk in the office of the protonotary of the court of common pleas, starting shortly after the Restoration. He was the author of several introductory works for aspiring clerks, books of precedents, and a manual for justices of the peace. The first part appeared in 1674, with a second edition in 1687 and a third edition in 1702. In the preface to this volume, Brown says he obtained most of the precedents from an eminent practitioner and that the book contains "the pleadings at large of many of the greatest and special modern causes," though the only named case is Lane v. Cotton, an action against the postmaster general arising from the loss of some bills of exchange from a letter. Large groups include actions on the case for words, assumpsit, bills of exchange, debt by and against various assignees and successors, error, fines and recoveries. In addition to the declarations, there are also forms for pleas, both dilatory and substantive, … [Click Below for Full Description]

MORDEN, Robert (d.1703) & Christopher BROWNE (fl.1684-1712)
London: Robert Morden & Christopher Browne, 1703. A very fine map of Savoy & Piedmont by two great English cartographers Robert Morden (d. 1703) was one of a new group of mapmakers who established the art of map publication in London on a permanent basis. As demonstrated in this excellent map of Savoy and Piedmont, Morden conveys the artistic and graphic standards of the late 17th century Dutch masters to English idiom. This is particularly true of the very fine engraving, evident here, that would not be typical of 18th century maps in general. Morden's early 18th century map of Savoy and Piedmont includes important topographical illustrations of this very mountainous region, but also, innovatively, main roads. The coats of arms of the House of Savoy, Piedmont and Tyrol are displayed around the title cartouche. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour, in very good condition overall.

ALLARD, Carel (1648-1709)
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.

DE WIT, Frederick (1630-1706)
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.

Delisle, Guillaume (1675-1726)
Paris: Guillaume Delisle, 1703. A RARE FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE OF THE FIRST MAP TO ACCURATELY LOCATE THE MOUTH OF THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER Copper-plate engraving with original hand color: 201/2" x 271/4" References: Seymour I. Schwartz & Ralph E. Ehrenberg, The Mapping of America (New York, 1980), plate 82; R. V. Tooley, The Mapping of America (London, 1985), 22. This groundbreaking map of Mexico and Florida was a paradigm for many later maps by European geographers throughout the eighteenth century. Drawn by Guillaume Delisle, the most important French cartographer to follow in the footsteps of Nicolas Sanson , it was the first printed map to delineate accurately the mouth of the Mississippi River with its delta, while also discarding the anecdotal and sometimes mythological information that characterized earlier maps in favor of data that came strictly from surveying and measurement. Delisle based his map on the most recent explorations, carefully compiling and assessing available information, and he was the first to incorporate a number of important geographical discoveries. The survivors of La Salle's ill-fated 1684 attempt to found a colony at the mouth of the Mississippi River - Henri Joutel, Jean Cavelier and others - had made further expeditions, while La Salle's lieutenant Henri de Tonti had made several trips down the Mississippi and visited the Choctaw Indians. Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville had explored the beginnings of the Red River, and Pierre-Charles Le Sueur, searching for mines in 1700, had gone up beyond the Illinois River into Sioux country. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Delisle, Guillaume (1675-1726)
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 culmi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Index and a few leaves with pale marginal damp mark but all leaves, clean, crisp & supple. *The author complains that the price of drugs has increased rapidly and without cause during his tenure at St. Barts. That there is mis-prescription and fashion in drugs when there are perfectly good remedies available for much less money. This was also a territorial dispute between physicians and apothecaries who, during the late 17th and early 18th centuries had encroached on doctor's rights to prescribing and making up of their own medicines. Practices at this time included feeding gold to animals so that patients should "benefit" from eating their flesh, of grinding up pearl into powders etc. A scarce book in any edition with the Wellcome collection holding this but of the copyright libraries only the British Library and Oxford listing this title.
