Browned and spotted, a few leaves with edge-tears or marginal paper flaws, twice affecting a side-note. A bit rubbed and marked, expert repairs to joints and spine ends, corners a touch worn, label lost from spine. Small library stamp to title-page and one other leaf. The 'third' English edition of this famous sensational collection of accounts of piracy around the Americas, the 'ur-text of pirate narratives' A translation of Dutchman Alexander Olivier Exquemelin's 'De Americaanse zeerovers', it was first published in Dutch in 1678, with translations into most European languages soon afterward. This English version follows a 1684 quarto and its second edition of the same year, along with a 1695 reissue. Further editions were spread across the eighteenth and into the nineteenth century. Sabin quotes Rich as calling this edition 'somewhat different from the former: "for whereas the style before was loose and uncouth in divers parts thereof, the same is now rectified and made more correct throughout the whole body of it" (Preface)' The plates include four portraits of pirates, a map of Panama and the south sea coasts of the Americas, and depictions of sea battles and land slaughters.

      Leiden: Petrus Vander Aa, 1704. First of the Edition and first with Gronovius' curation, the volume printed in both Greek and Latin in parallel columns. A COPY WITH FINE PROVENANCE, THE MACCLESFIELD COPY WITH THEIR PLATE AT THE PASTEDOWN.

Folio, bound at the time in full contemporary polished calf, the covers with double gilt fillet rules at the borders, the spine with raised bands gilt ruled, and with a red morocco lettering label gilt. (6 ff), 376, (6) pp. An excellent, well preserved copy, still very handsome and with slight strengthening at the hinges, the text block crisp and clean throughout, with some of the occasional browning usual to the paper stock evident on some leaves. Still as fine a copy one might hope to encounter. SCARCE AND IMPORTANT, A COPY WITH FINE PROVENANCE. THE FIRST OF THE EDITION AND A HIGHLY IMPORTANT CLASSICAL WORK. Upon his retirement Flavius Arrianus, a Greek soldier in the Roman army, completed his seven volume work on the campaigns of Alexander, and an eighth describing India was also penned, as well as his writings on the area of the Euphrates. All are included in the present volume. 'Arrian was born of Greek ethnicity in the coastal town of Nicomedia (present-day Izmit), the capital of the Roman province of Bithynia, in what is now north-western Turkey, about 70 km from Byzantium (later Constantinople, now Istanbul). He studied philosophy in Nicopolis in Epirus, under the Stoic philosopher Epictetus, and wrote two books about the philosopher's teachings. At the same time he entered the Imperial service, and served as a junior adviser on the consilium of Gaius Avidius Nigrinus, governor of Achaea and a close friend of the future Emperor Hadrian (circa 111-114). Very little is known about his subsequent career - though it is probable that he served in Gaul and on the Danube frontier, and possible that he was in Baetica and Parthia - until he held the office of Consul in 129 or 130. In 131 he was appointed governor of the Black Sea province of Cappadocia and commander of the Roman legions on the frontier with Armenia. Arrian wrote a military treatise called Ektaxis kata Alan n, which detailed battle against the Alans, and the Techn Taktik in which he described how he would organise the legions and auxiliary troops at his disposal, among which were legions XII Fulminata and XV Apollinaris. He wrote of deploying the legionaries in depth, supported by javelin throwers, archers, and horse archers in the rear ranks to defeat the assault of the Alan cavalry using these combined arms tactics. Interestingly, there seems to be no historical record of a battle between Romans and Alans that year. During this period Arrian wrote several works on military tactics, including Ektaxis kata Alan n. He also wrote a short account of a tour of inspection of the Black Sea coast in the traditional 'periplus' form (in Greek) addressed to the Emperor Hadrian, the Periplus Ponti Euxini or "Circumnavigation of the Black Sea". Arrian left Cappadocia shortly before the death of his patron Hadrian, in 138, and there is no evidence for any further public appointments until 145/6 when he was elected Archon at Athens, once the city's leading political post, but by this time an honorary one. It was here that he devoted himself to history, writing his most important work, the Anabasis Alexandri or "The Campaigns of Alexander". He also wrote the Indica, an account of the voyage by Alexander's fleet from India to the Persian Gulf under Nearchus. He also wrote a political history of the Greek world after Alexander, most of which is lost.' Arrian's history is a GREAT AND CLASSIC WORK which describes in intimate detail, the exploits of Alexander the Great, student of Aristotle and reader of Homer. By the age of sixteen, he had gained significant military experience but became estranged from his father, the king of Greece. Upon his father's death, Alexander took the throne and was named captain general of the Hellenes. After this propitious beginning, Alexander went on to travel widely and fight intelligently. This classic work by Arrian, relates like no other, Alexander's exploits and his successes.

Stahl, war Leibarzt verschiedener Fürsten und des dänischen Königs Christian VI. "Mit dem 'Probierstein' (Lapis lydius) zur Untersuchung fossiler Knochen, die aus seiner Hohenlohischen Heimat stammten, betrat Carl Neuland: als Paläontologe, der in den lapides figurati unzweifelhaft die Reste einer uralten Fauna und Flora erkannte und die herrschende Meinung, die Fossilien seien ein lusus naturae, mit Verachtung strafte, als Chemiker, der die Umwandlung des Animalischen ins Mineralische zu verstehen versuchte, als Alchimist, der den Zeitpfeil umkehrend die energia menstruorum neu zu erwecken und damit als frisch gebackener vitalistischer Arzt Stahlscher Prägung Elexire zu destillieren hoffte. Nicht zufällig wurde Dippel für sein (aus rezenten Knochen gewonnenes) Tieröl bekannt und auch Carl zeigte in der 'Chymischen Storgerey' (1733), daß er die Inspiration seiner Jugend nicht aufgegeben hatte: eine der fünf darin beschriebenen Panaceen ist die Panacea Animali" (Bernard Richter). - Durchgehend etwas gebräunt bzw. braunfleckig, sonst gut erhalten. - VD18 10861211; Ferchl 85; Ferguson I, 145 (Anm.); Brüning 3120; nicht bei Duveen, Neu und Bolton [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Synodus Dioecesana Bellunensis ab Illustrissimo et Reverendissimo D.D. Joanne Francisco Bembo Dei, Dei et...

      Venezia, 1704.In 8° ( cm. 19,5 x cm.25,5 ), pagine 207.Residui di tagli dorati. Legatura in cartonato artigianale coevo,con ordinari segni d'uso e di tempo. Al frontespizio, elegante incisione. Presenza di scritte alle sguardie ed ultime carte. Esemplare lievemente allentato.Testo in Latino. Giovanni Francesco Bembo ( Venezia 1659-Belluno 1720 ), nato da facoltosa famiglia, si formò presso i somaschi di Verona, chierici regolari di Somasca, istituto religioso maschile di Diritto pontificio, Ordine, cui aderì egli stesso. Dopo la consacrazione sacerdotale visse a Camerino e poi a Roma, a Montecitorio, dapprima come maestro dei novizi, poi come confessore.Grazie alle sue riconosciute doti e vasta cultura, divenne ben presto, una personalità di spicco. Nel 1694 s'insediò nella Diocesi di Belluno, dove non ebbe vita facile in quanto la sua prorompente indole, piuttosto intransigente ed alquanto accentratrice, lo portò ad avere continui contrasti con i Canonici. Nel 1703 tenne un Sinodo diocesano, pubblicato a Venezia, l'anno seguente.

After publishing several general atlases himself he became the associate of Pierre Mariette, a publisher of prints.In 1647 Sanson accused the Jesuit Philippe Labbe of plagiarizing him in his Pharus Galliae Antiquae; in 1648 he lost his eldest son Nicolas, killed during the Fronde. Among the friends of his later years was the great Condé. He died in Paris on 7 July 1667. Two younger sons, Adrien (d. 1708) and Guillaume (d. 1703), succeeded him as geographers to the king.In 1692 Hubert Jaillot collected Sanson's maps in an Atlas nouveau. See also the 18th century editions of some of Sanson's works on Delamarche under the titles of Atlas de géographie ancienne and Atlas britannique; and the Catalogue des cartes et livres de géographie de Sanson (1702).

Jahrhunderts. Er ist unter den verschiedensten Namen aufgetreten, und Schmieder [Gesch. d. Alchemie 389-94] meint, daß auch der Name Vaughan ein Pseudonym und aus vagans entstanden sei, da sein Träger sich zeitlebens auf Reisen befunden hat. Er durchwanderte ganz Europa, kam bis nach Indien und wurde allgemein für einen wahren Adepten gehalten. Seine Schriften sind durchwegs selten." - Tlw. leicht gebräunt; seltene Anstreichungen von alter Hand; hinterer Vorsatz mit altem (1713) Besitzervermerk, sonst ein gutes u. schönes Expl.

        Espagne Triomphante sous le Regne de Philippe V.

      1704 - Paris: De Fer, 1704. Coloured. Four sheets conjoined, total 1000 x 1280mm. Some restoration, as usual with these separate-issue maps, backed on canvas. A superb wall map of Iberia, published soon after the accession of Philippe V to the throne of Spain in 1700. This gave the French reason to celebrate as Philippe was grandson of the French king Louis XIV (the 'Sun King'), meaning a closer connection between the two thrones. In the huge ornamental border are medallion portraits of Philippe and his wife, Marie Louise of Savoy, and 81 medallion portraits going back to the Visgoth king Athaulf (410-5). Bottom left is a plan of Madrid; bottom right is a view of the Escurial Palace. Not all of Europe was as happy as France to have Bourbon kings on the throne of both Spain and France, and soon the War of the Spanish Succession (1701-14) broke out, with Charles of Austria the rival claimant. During the war Spain lost both Gibraltar and Minorca to Britain.

Contemporary sprinkled calf, spines richly gilt in compartments, extremities lightly rubbed. [xxx], 372; 417, [1]blank, [8]indexpp. Paris, Guillaume Vandive, ?First edition of Lucas's first voyage. Rare. Lucas made many voyages to the Levant. In 1688 he served with the Venetians at the siege of Negreponte. In 1696 he returned to France with a large collection of medals and other antiquities which were purchased for the Cabinet du Roi. This brought him to the attention of the court, and he then began the series of three voyages for which he is famous. This is an account of his first long voyage 1699-1703, edited from his notes by Baudelot de Dairval. (All of Lucas's works were edited by others.) Lucas was a merchant, naturalist, doctor and antiquary with a flair for discovering antiquities and manuscripts. His accounts of his voyages often border on the fabulous, and he is criticized by other travellers, but his works convey the colour and piquancy of the East, tempered by the editor's classical erudition, form and quotations. Carré calls Lucas the first popularizer. His was the first work to spread a knowledge of Egypt and Persia at the beginning of the 18th Century. Vol. I deals mainly with Egypt and Cyprus, vol. II with Persia and Syria.? (Navari). Ibrahim-Hilmy I, p393; Blackmer, 1036. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

A fine, wide-margined copy in original binding. ---- RARE FIRST EDITION of the first authentic record by an Englishman of the pilgrimage to Mecca. Pitts was forced into captivity as a slave at Algiers in 1679 when the merchantman in which he was sailing was captured by an Algerian pirate ship. In 1680, after torture led him to make a declaration of his conversion to Islam, he accompanied his master on the pilgrimage to Mecca via Cairo - of which he gives a very graphic account - Suez and Jeddah. After fifteen years captivity he succeeded in escaping but on his first night back in England was impressed for the navy, from which with difficulty he obtained his release. Pitts gives a brief but sensible and consistent account of what he saw during his pilgrimage. His narrative was the first and most detailed description of the religion of Islam and the manners of Muslims written by a European during the seventeenth century. - Visit our website for additional images and information.
