SIDNEY, Algernon
London: Printed by J. Darby, 1704. . Second edition, folio, (viii), 424, (48) pp, with some mispagination. Portrait frontispiece, armorial bookplate of Admiral of the Fleet Sir William Rowley (c.1690-1768). Contemporary full panelled calf, rather worn with restoration to corners, rebacked in a lighter calf with a new label and new free endpapers. Elected to the Long Parliament in 1645, Sidney initially opposed the execution of Charles I, but changed his mind during the Interregnum. A period of exile after the Restoration saw him negotiating with Louis XIV for a planned English uprising, and once he had returned to England in 1677 he remained involved in republican politics. Implicated in the Rye House Plot, he was tried and beheaded in 1683.& First published in 1698, this work cemented his reputation as a hero to the Whigs and later the Americans. A motto he wrote in a visitor’s book at the University of Copenhagen was subsequently used on the Seal of Massachusetts.

(1 l.), 10 pp. *** FIRST EDITION of these eyewitness descriptions of the Battle of Blenheim, 13 August 1704. Two of the letters are dated 13 August and the other 17 August. Frederick I, landgrave of Hesse-Kassel, and Baron van Hompesch are both reporting to the States General of the Netherlands. They were presumably part of the Dutch contingent that marched south with the Duke of Marlborough, and met up with Eugene of Savoy in July. This report includes details of troop movements during the battle and a list of French officers and battalions that were taken prisoner.At the Battle of Blenheim, the Duke of Marlborough and Prince Eugene of Savoy led English, Dutch, and Austrian troops to a decisive defeat of the French and Bavarian forces under Marshal Tallard and the Elector of Bavaria. This was probably the most decisive victory in the War of the Spanish Succession (1701-1714); the victory saved Vienna and thus preserved the Habsburg Empire and the Grand Alliance. The French lost some 20,000 men; another 15,000 or so were captured. The myth of the invincible French army was destroyed. Ba … [Click Below for Full Description]

PSALMANAAZAAR, George
London: Dan. Brown; G. Strahan and W. Davis; and Francis Coggan,, 1704. Giving an Account of the Religion, Custom, Manner, &c. of the Inhabitants. Together with a Relation of what happen'd to the Author in his Travels. Octavo (193 × 118 mm). Later lightly sprinkled calf, red morocco label, low bands bracketed by single gilt rules, gilt floral roll to the turn-ins. 16 engraved plates, 2 of them folding, one being the table of the Formosan language. A little rubbed, particularly on the joints, the upper cracked to the cords but holding, head-cap chipped, tan-burn to the endpapers, some browning, that to signature [a] quite strong, small paper flaw to Q5, costing just a couple of letters verso, overall very good. First edition. A very good copy of this, probably the most famous of all historical literary frauds. Psalmanazar was a Gascon who, down on his luck, "in order to gain alms … decided to make his identity more exotic, and posed as a Japanese" (ODNB). As part of this imposture he developed his own "Formosan" language inventing "twenty letters with shapes, names, and pronunciations that resemble some Greek and Hebrew letters", adding "'many other particulars equally difficult, such as a considerable piece of a new language and grammar, a new division of the year into twenty months, a new religion, &c. and all out of my own head". Taken up by a British military chaplain serving in the Low Countries he travelled to England, and within a year of his arrival had published the present history to great acclaim.

de Gorter, Johannes and Govard Bidloo and Wijer Willem Muys
Four early 18th century medical works bound in one volume, the most important of which is the 2nd edition of Exercitationum anatomico-chirurgicarum by the celebrated Dutch anatomist and surgeon Govard Bidloo. Expanded from the first edition, this work is illustrated with sixteen handsome copper-engraved plates. The first edition of 1704 was illustrated with only seven. Exercitationum is a "collection of ten anatomical and surgical essays by the celebrated Leyden anatomist. In the two essays on the nerves Bidloo maintains that the nerves do not contain fluid but are rather a mass of fibers. In the seventh essay, De oculo purulento (p. 73-82), the treatment for hypopyon is described" (Bernard Becker Collection in Ophthalmology, 49). CONDITION & DETAILS: Leiden: Jordanum Luchtmans. 1708, 1716, and 1725. 4to. 7.75 by 6 inches. Ex-libris from the Bellingham Medical Institute, but bearing only the very light ghosting of 2 numbers on the spine. Bidloo: 3 parts in 1: [viii], 128, [4], [129]-216 pp, sixteen engraved plates; [47] pages. Muys: 100, [4] pages. Folding table. Gorter: [16], 246, [plate], 1 pages. ILLUSTRATION: The Bidloo is illustrated with sixteen copper-engraved plates, overall in very good condition. All of the plates show a very faded library stamp, but on most of the plates it is barely noticeable. See scanned images. The Gorter is illustrated with one copper-engraved plate and also has a very faded library stamp on the plate. BINDING: Early burgundy 20th century library cloth (see ex-libris note above).

Cox II, p. 476; ESTC T137016; Hill, pp. 242-243; cf. Arents 586. First edition of one of the most famous and most successful hoaxes ever perpetrated. It offers a complete and detailed description of the island Formosa and of the life and customs of its people, including its alphabet, language and grammar, supposedly written by a native of Formosa living at London, but entirely invented by a French-born charlatan and con-man.It seems that plate "12" was never included in this work, the descriptions of many copies state that plate 12 is lacking and the plate is never directly mentioned.

NEWTON, Isaac
Nineteen folding engraved plates. Title printed in red & black. 2 p.l., 144, 137 pp., 1 leaf numbered "138" on recto, 139-211, [1] pp. Large 4to, cont. English panelled calf (very beautifully rebacked & recornered by Aquarius, minor dustiness), green morocco lettering piece on spine. London: S. Smith & B. Walford, 1704. First edition, and a fine, fresh copy, of one of the great classics in optics. "All previous philosophers and mathematicians had been sure that white light is pure and simple, regarding colours as modifications or qualifications of the white. Newton showed experimentally that the opposite is true: there are pure coloured rays which cannot be analysed by refraction, such as the green of the spectrum; just as there are coloured rays which can be analysed, such as the green formed by mixing blue and yellow light. Natural white light, far from being simple, is a compound of many pure elementary colours which can be separated and recompounded at will."-Printing & the Mind of Man 172. This book is distinguished in two other ways. First, it contains Newton's earliest mathematical papers in print, published here for the first time to assert his priority over Leibniz in the invention of the calculus. Second, it contains his set of sixteen "Queries" on the nature of matter which, in the 18th century, was considered to be the most important feature of the Opticks and had a profound influence on scientific thought. Very good and crisp copy. With the modern bookplate of Jean Michel Cantacuzène, a member of the princely family of Wallachia, Moldavia, and Russia. They … [Click Below for Full Description]

[DAMPIER] RAY, John.
M. Clark for H. Faithorne, 1686-1688-, London. Three volumes, folio, bookplate of Haskell Norman in first volume; some browning and scattered foxing particularly in the third volume (as usual); a handsome set in contemporary calf, a few scuffs, neat restoration to joints and heads of spines, banded spine gilt with double red morocco labels. A marvellous set: first edition, first issue, complete with the rare third volume published eighteen years after the main work in a single issue limited to only 200 copies, and notably including contemporary descriptions of some of the plants collected by Dampier on the northwest coast of Australia.John Ray was considered the "father of British botany" and this was his greatest work, the most important botanical text of the seventeenth century, and the foundation of modern botany. By the time he wrote the first volume Ray had gained an 'encyclopaedic knowledge of the literature of botany and horticulture, from ancient times to the work of his contemporaries, including the latest acquisitions from microscopy. His clear mind and balanced judgement enabled him to select the well-attested facts from this mass of material and to present them in a rational perspective?' (Morton, History of Botanical Science).This work has specific importance for Australia. In 1699 Dampier, the first Englishman to land on the Australian continent, gathered together specimens of Australia's exotic flora. This collection of plants came from various places on the West Australian coast including Dirk Hartog Island, Shark Bay, near present-day Karratha, and East Lew … [Click Below for Full Description]

BOSMAN, Willem.
Utrecht, Anthony Schouten, 1704.2 volumes in 1. 4to. Contemporary blind-tooled vellum (1 hinge skilfully repaired), with red morocco title-label. With engraved portrait, engraved title-page and 16 engraved plates (13 folding). (24),207; 280,(28) pp.* First edition. - Willem Bosman (1672 - ?), employee of the Dutch West India Company (WIC) and chief Dutch factor at the castle of Elmina, wrote the first authoritative and detailed account of the West Coast of Africa, during a 14 years' residence there. It is the chief source for the knowledge of the Dutch slave-trade during the second half of the 17th century. It also gives an interesting picture of international rivalry, current trade, and the wretched depraved existence of the European factors stationed permanently on the coast. The book is written in the form of letters to a friend. The last two letters are written by other authors. The first is written by David van Nyendael containing a description of Rio Formosa, or Benin. The second is written by Jan Snoek giving a description of the Tooth and Grain Coast. The fine plates depict the trade-settlements on the West African coast. - A very fine copy.Tiele 173; Cat. NHSM I, p. 204; Paulitschke 894: 'Sehr wichtiges Reisewerk'; Gay 2808.

1704. With: De Furibus Librariis Dissertatio Epistoli. Parts I-II in one volume. Leiden, 1704-1708. 121,(1)pp., (1)f. blc, 77pp. 8vo. (Later) blue boards (some light foxing throughout). Thomas Crenius (Brandenburg 1648 - Leiden 1728), whose real name was T.T. Crusius, was an erudite orientalist and philologist. He became a corrector at Leiden and Rotterdam printing houses. In this work, consisting of two 'dissertations', separately published between 1704 and 1708, Crenius discusses plagiarism. Among the authors discussed here are: Grotius, Lipsius, Descartes etc. Brunet II,413 (states 1705 as publication date for the first text).

PSALMANAZAR, George
London, printed for Dan. Brown, a.o., 1704.Contemporary panelled calf (hinges splitting but holding). With engraved folding plate showing the 'Formosan Alphabet' (with tear), and 15 (of 16) engraved plates showing costumes, money, buildings, boats etc.(margin of folding plate of the funeral sl. dam.; plate 12 missing as often and map missing) XIV,(56),327,(9) pp.First edition. - One of the most fantastic literary forgeries of all times. Psalmanazar (N.F.B. de Rodes ?), a native from the south of France, led the life of an adventurer. Being instructed by Jesuit tutors in the history and geography of Japan he pretended to be a native of Japan, under influence of chaplain William Innes, to render the story more plausible, this was changed into being a native of Formosa. In London he attracted at once popular interest. Psalmanazar invented his own 'Formosan' language etc., and he wrote his fictitious narration. What was not due to his own imagination he borrowed from the accounts of Varenius and Candidius. Doubt at once arose over the authenticity of his narrative, and after Innes was sent as chaplain-general to the English forces in Portugal, he felt incompetent to sustain his imposture unaided. (D.N.B.). 'Its lurid descriptions of polygamy, human sacrifice, cannibalism and infanticide caused a sensation. Allegedly written in Latin, then translated into English, it rapidly went through two editions, with a French translation at Amsterdam in 1705, and a German version at Frankfurt in 1716' (Howgego V, P35). - Age-browned.Alt-Japan-Katalog 1222; Cordier, B.

BENZO(NI), Hieronymus.
Leyden, Pieter vander Aa, 1704.4to. Modern marbled boards. With engraved frontispiece and 5 folding engraved plates. 86 (=89),(11) pp.The first part is a translation of Girolamo Benzoni's (1518/19-1570) La Historia del mondo nuovo, Venice, 1565. Benzoni went in 1541 as a soldier in the Spanish army at an age of 22 from Milan to the New World. He spent the next 15 years stationed at various posts throughout America. 'It is valuable as an early record of the establishment of Europeans in America written from a non-Spanish standpoint. The woodcuts are of particular interest: engraved from the author's own drawings, they illustrate the daily life of the Indians and some of the natural resources of the country' (Howgego p.107). He describes vividly the Spanish cruelties committed against the Indians. The second part contains the voyages of Amerigo Vespucci (1451-1512). The account of Hennepin called for on the title-page is not present, it was issued separately. - ( Age-browned; upper outer corner occasionally waterstained).Tiele 88; Cat.

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

[WORLIDGE, John]
London: A. and J. Churchill, and John Taylor, 1704. London: A. and J. Churchill, and John Taylor, 1704. First Edition. Calf. Very good. First Edition. Calf. 8vo (200 × 130 mm), ff. 422; numerous wood engravings; some spotting, and dampstaining to edges of some leaves; very occasional ink notations, including 16 lines scored through, though still legible, on sig. E1v; very good in contemporary blind-stamped calf, sensitively re-backed with recent morocco lettering-piece. Reissue of the first edition of this very scarce early dictionary of rural arts and industry.The authorship of this work is disputed, although it is most often treated as the work of John Worlidge (fl. 1669-1698), who was one of the most significant writers on rural affairs in his day and practically the first to treat agriculture specifically as an industry. He ‘is of interest in the history of agricultural literature as the compiler of the first systematic treatise on husbandry on a large and comprehensive scale. He was a correspondent of John Houghton, who gives in his "Letters" (1681) two contributions by "the ingenious Mr. John Worlidge of Petersfield in Hampshire," on "a great improvement of land by parsley," and on "improving and fyning of Syder."‘Worlidge';s "Systema Agriculturæ, or the Mystery of Husbandry discovered ... by J. W., Gent.," first published in 1669, went through a number of editions (1675, 1681, 1687, 1716) before it was supplanted in popular favour by the numerous agricultural reference books which are a feature of the eighteenth century ...
