        Navigantium atque Itinerantium Bibliotheca; or, a Compleat Collection of Voyages and Travels: consisting of above four hundred of the most authentick writers

Contemporary calf, panelled in blind, expertly rebacked to style, spines with raised bands in seven compartments, red and black morocco lettering piece The first edition of this important compilation of world voyages, including descriptions of voyages to America, the Arctic, Africa, the Middle East and China. A collection of important voyages, which, as Harris himself describes "begins with the most early Discoveries, and Settlements of Trade, and reaches down to the Year 1626, where Purchas ends his Collection. But you will find here a succinct Account, of the Books of very many other Authors, which are neither in Him nor Hackluit . The Second Volume hath nothing out of Purchas and Hackluit; but is entirely New: Being taken from the best of all the Modern Authors extant . the Index is so very large and compleat, that you may there readily find the Description of any Part of the World; or an Account of any Bird, Beast, or Plant . that hath been descib'd by Travellers." The work would be republished in second and third editions, but the first edition has become quite rare. "The first edition is valuable for the original impressions of the fine series of maps by Herman Moll, including a very good one of America. Also there is a map of the world according to Mercator's projection, with improvements, showing the northern coast line and part of the west and south coasts of Australia together with parts of Tasmania and New Zealand. Among the voyages included are those of Magellan, Drake, Cavenish, Schouten, Hawkins, Narbrough, and Dampier" (Hill). Hill (2004) 774; Sabin 30482; Alden & Landis 705/90. [Attributes: First Edition]

Hayhurst to the front free endpaper, heir to a successful chain of dispensing chemists, based in Nelson, Lancashire: "A collector of books, in a delightful room at his home, white-painted bookshelves stacked high on all the available wall space show to advantage the hand-tooled leather bindings of a collection that has been acquired slowly and with discrimination over the years" (The Chemist and Druggist, 7 September 1957).

        Remarks on Several Parts of Italy &c. In the Years 1701, 1702, 1703

      London: Jacob Tonson, 1705. First edition. Engraved headpieces and vignettes. [xii], 534, [10, index] pp., with half-title. 8vo. Contemporay Cambridge calf, citron morocco spine label, red sprinkled edges. Small chip to head of spine, else fine. Old shelf label at foot of spine, book label on front pastedown. First edition. Engraved headpieces and vignettes. [xii], 534, [10, index] pp., with half-title. 8vo. An incredibly fresh and clean copy of the first edition of Addison's account of his grand tour experiences in Italy. "After travelling south to Marseilles Addison took ship for Italy on 12 December 1700, but was driven back by a storm. In the end he reached Genoa by land, and then proceeded through Pavia to Milan and then Venice, after which he followed the accustomed route south, choosing to go via San Marino and Loreto as he journeyed briefly to Rome and then on to Naples. He climbed Vesuvius, sailed round Capri, and sailed back up the coast to Rome. Here he passed a more extended sojourn, visiting churches, annotating architecture and antiquities, and undertaking trips out to literary shrines such as Tivoli and Frascati. There were poetic echoes on almost every corner for a man as deeply imbued in the ancient corpus as Addison, and he was to coin the phrase 'classic ground' to express a pervading atmosphere of ageless accomplishment, as the familiar texts sprang unbidden into his mind" (ODNB). It was while crossing the Alps in December of 1701 that Addison wrote the poem "A Letter from Italy," one of his most popular. ESTC T74575

        Sacro arsenale overo prattica dell'Officio della S. Inquisitione. Con l'inserzione d'alcune regole fatte dal P. Inquisitore Tomaso Menghini, domenicano, di diverse annotazioni del Dottore Gio. Pasqualone, fiscale della Suprema Generale Inquisizione di Roma. Et in questa seconda impressione corretta in alcune cose la parte X degl'avvertimenti, quali sono posti in ordine alfabetico con un indice a parte. Dedicato alla Santita di Nostro Sig. Clemente XI.In Roma, nella Stamperia della Rev. Cam. Apostolica, 1705.

      In Roma, nella Stamperia della Rev. Cam. Apostolica 1705 - Cm. 22, pp. (8) 426 (44). Stemma cardinalizio Albani al frontespizio. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida con dorso a 5 sottili nervi e tagli spruzzati. Restauro all'angolo esterno bianco delle carte finali d'indice (senza alcuna lesione del testo); trascurabile alone limitato al margine inferiore di poche carte, sporadiche fioriture. Esemplare nel complesso ben conservato. Eliseo Masini, nato a Bologna nella seconda metà del XV secolo e morto a Genova nel 1627, fu commissario del S. Uffizio, giudice della fede e inquisitore ad Ancona, Mantova e Genova. "Dall'attività di giudice, il M. trasse ispirazione per compilare quello che restò per molto tempo il solo manuale in volgare destinato ai giudici del S. Uffizio romano: il Sacro arsenale overo Prattica dell'officio della Santa Inquisitione (Genova 1621). Il successo fu quasi immediato, anche perché il testo si presentava come un vademecum d'ufficio privo del consueto e sovrabbondante commento alle fonti bibliche, giuridiche e teologiche che, ancora nella prima metà del Seicento, appesantiva le pratiche e i testi di diritto inquisitoriale. Inoltre il S. Uffizio romano non poteva vantare né le istruzioni in volgare che la Suprema spagnola fece distribuire sin dalla nascita ai giudici di distretto, né le guide o i compendi che autori come Diego de Simancas o Pablo Garcìa avevano compilato negli anni Sessanta del XVI secolo. Il Sacro arsenale colmava dunque un vuoto editoriale grazie a un sapiente collage compilato a partire dalla Breve informatione per i vicari e dalle lettere circolari che la congregazione, dagli anni Ottanta del Cinquecento, aveva inviato ai giudici locali per mettere a conoscenza i singoli uffici del tribunale delle proprie prescrizioni amministrative o giudiziarie" (cfr. voce M. in DBI, vol. 71). Edizione tra le più complete di questo celebre manuale per l'inquisitore che doveva esaminare (e talvolta procedere alle diverse forme di tortura) eretici, sospetti d'eresia, fautori degli eretici, maghi, streghe, incantatori, bestemmiatori, oppositori del S. Uffizio, ebrei e infedeli. Cfr. Iccu; Edizioni giuridiche antiche in lingua italiana, II, 1, p. 30. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Addison's travels in Italy led him to coin the phrase "'classic ground' to express a pervading atmosphere of ageless accomplishment" (ODNB). This copy with the bookplate of Robert J. Hayhurst to the front free endpaper, heir to a successful chain of dispensing chemists, based in Nelson, Lancashire: "A collector of books, in a delightful room at his home, white-painted bookshelves stacked high on all the available wall space show to advantage the hand-tooled leather bindings of a collection that has been acquired slowly and with discrimination over the years" (The Chemist and Druggist, 7 September 1957).

      Hamburg, Liebernickel 1705 - (Bücher 10964) Petrus Goldschmid Verworffener Hexen- und Zauberer-Advocat Das ist Wolgegründete Vernichtung des thörichten Vorhabens Hn. Christiani Thomasii. welche durch ihre superkluge Phantasie-Grillen dem teufflischen Hexen-Geschmeiß das Wort reden wollen. und bestättiget wird, daß in der That Eine Teuflische Hexerey und Zauberey sey. Hamburg, Gottfried Liebernickel, 1705 blindgeprägter Leder-Einband im Stil der Zeit 13 Bl., 654 Seiten, 19 Bl. ohne das gestochene Frontispiz Einzige Auflage. Äusserst seltene und böse Streitschrift des Husumer Gelehrten Petrus Goldschmid, in welcher er den Hexenglauben verteidigt. "Ausgangspunkt des 1705 veröffentlichten Verworffenen Hexen- und Zauber-Advocaten, mit dem sich Goldschmidt gegen Thomasius und dessen Verteidigung Bekkers wandte, ist die dem Hexenhammer entlehnte Behauptung, dass es eine schwere Ketzerei sei, der Existenz und den Verbrechen der Hexen keinen Glauben zu schenken. Thomasius, so der Vorwurf im Titel, rede mit seinen "Superkluge(n) Phantasie-Grillen" dem "teufflischen Hexen-Geschmeiss" das Wort. Goldschmidt warnt auch hier vor dem verderblichen niederländischen Einfluss, indem er die grosse Bedeutung hervorhebt, die Bekker und van Dale fur Thomasius haben. Stilistisch ist der Verworffene Hexen- und Zauberadvocat weniger polemisch als der Hollische Morpheus und eher in warnendem Ton gehalten. Auch inhaltlich macht Goldschmidt im Hexen- und Zauber-Advocaten einige Zugestandnisse an die Skeptiker. Zwar hält er am Teufelspakt fest; weil er jedoch der Meinung ist, dass der Teufel dazu keines Körpers bedurfe, muss er den körperlichen Beischlaf und die Zeugung von Kindern und Tieren zurückweisen. Weiterhin räumt er ein, nicht alle Vorwurfe gegen Hexen mussten wortlich genommen werden, und wendet sich gegen die Folter als Mittel zur Geständniserzwingung. Zugleich gibt er sich allerdings als Bewunderer Carpzovs zu erkennen und vertritt die Ansicht, dass die Existenz von Hexen und Zauberern grundsatzlich bereits durch die Bibel verbürgt sei. Im zwölften Kapitel des Hexen- und Zauberadvocaten distanziert er sich vom Magieglauben und den Ritualen des einfachen Volkes, die er aus gelehrter Warte verurteilt." (M. Meumann zu Peter Goldschmidt, in: Lexikon zur Geschichte der Hexenverfolgung) Vorsätze erneuert, erste Seiten am rechten Aussenrand braunfleckig, sonst kaum fleckig Sehr seltenes Hexenbuch!

Best (and first Dutch) edition of the most important account of the Cape of Good Hope and one of the most important works of all time on South Africa, with twice as many copperplates as the first German edition. Much of the material is based on Kolb's own observations in the years 1705 to 1713, but he also compares them with the observations and theories of earlier writers. The zoological plates show numerous mammals, birds, fish and other marine animals and reptiles, and other plates cover topography, agriculture, hunting, buildings, etc. In addition to these subjects, the text provides detailed information on the customs and habits of the Hottentots, a well-documented account of the VOC government of the Cape, the earliest list of South African animals and much information about plants. It remains an essential primary source for any study of South Africa. Some minor thumbing and foxing in the margins of the textleaves, some of the folds of the plates reinforced and a few occasional minor stains.

First Complete Edition of this important work, a Correction/Elucidation of Baronius Caesar's "Annales ecclesiastici a Christi nato ad annum 1198". Antonio (Antoine) Pagi, French ecclesiastical historian 1624-99. He studied with the Aix Jesuits then entered the monastery of the Conventual Franciscans Arles. He devoted his spare time to the study of history. Discerning numerous chronological errors and misstatements of fact in the "Annales Ecclesiastici" of Baronius he made it his life-work to correct them and otherwise elucidate the valuable work. Pagi's first volume was printed during his lifetime (Paris 1689); the remaining three volumes, reaching until 1198, the last year in the work of Baronius, were completed in manuscript shortly before his death. The whole work was edited in four volumes by his nephew Francisci / François Pagi and first published in 1705. Mansi embodied it in his edition of the "Annales" of Baronius (1736-59). "Critica" manifests great care historical knowledge but is not entirely free from error. His other works are: "Dissertatio Hypatica Seu De Consulibus Xsareis" (Lyons, 1682) printed also in "Apparatus in Annales Ecclesiasticos" (Lucca, 1740) "Dissertatio De Die Et Anno Mortis S. Martini Ep. Turonensis", minor treatises in defense of "Dissertatio Hypatica" "D. Antonii Paduani O. Min. Sermones Hactenus Inediti" (Avignon, 1685). From

Amsterdam, Cornelis Danckerts the younger, [ca. 1696]. Royal folio (44.5 x 29.5). With 8 double-page engraved plates (plate size mostly ca. 29.5 x 35.5 cm) by Bastiaan Stopendaal after the designs of Herbert Kramer; and a half-page engraved coats-of-arms of Reael and his wife on the back of the dedication page. Modern half maroon goatskin morocco.

      BAL 796 note; Hollstein XXVIII, p. 132, 25. Rare first and only edition of an architectural print series of 3 elevations and 5 plans of the stately manor house "Huis te Nigtevecht" also known as "De Nes", designed by the Amsterdam architect Herbert Kramer (d. 1705). The house nearly fills a small square island in the Vecht river, near Vreeland, southeast of Amsterdam. One plan includes the surrounding water and the drawbridge that gave access to the house, and another shows the roof. The house was built in 1687 for Pieter Reael (1650-1701), Lord of Nigtevecht, after his 1683 marriage with Maria Eleonora Huydecoper (1658-1706), the daughter of the magistrate, burgomaster of Amsterdam and humanist Balthasar Huydecoper. Huis te Nigtevecht was torn down in 1829/30, so the present print series gives us our best record of its original form. Its large octagonal hall looking on to the garden is of special architectural interest, for it may be the earliest example of this form, which shows French influences. Otherwise it follows the tradition of 17th-century Dutch manor house architecture.In very good condition, with only some browning near some of the folds (from the guards of an earlier binding) and occasionally along the edges.

      Amsterdam 1705 - Esemplare tratto dal primo volume del "Nouveau Theatre de l'Italie" pubblicato ad Amsterdam nel 1704/5 e nel 1724, quale integrazione al progetto di Johannes Baleu, iniziato nel 1663, del grande "libro delle città", manchevole delle piante di gran parte della parte settentrionale della penisola. Il Blaeu, durante la sua lunga attività editoriale pubblica tre volumi sulle città italiane. Nel 1663 i primi tre, suddivisi in Stato della Chiesa, Roma e Regno di Napoli e Sicilia. Alla sua morte i suoi eredi danno alla luce altri due volumi datati 1682 incentrati sulle città del Piemonte e della Savoia, poi ristampati da altri editori nel 1693 e 1697. Il francese Pierre Mortier pubblica una ristampa nel 1704/5, intitolata "Nouveau Theatre de l’Italie". L’opera è in quattro volumi e comprende le lastre del Blaeu, ritoccate e modificate in piccola parte, integrate dall’aggiunta di numerose nuove mappe di proprio disegno, raffiguranti le città della parte settentrionale della penisola, racchiuse nel primo volume dell’opera. L’atlante del Mortier venne pubblicato con testo latino, francese ed olandese. La particolarità che differenzia le due edizioni di Blaeu e Mortier è rappresentata dal fatto che il testo non è al verso della singola mappa (che quindi è bianca nel retro), ma si trova all’inizio di ogni singolo volume. Il grande successo dell’opera diede origine ad un’ulteriore ristampa, praticamente identica, curata da R. Alberts ed edita nel 1724/5. Incisione in rame, in buono stato di conservazione. Bibliografia: Cremonini pp. 83-90. Dimensioni 535 445mm
