PLUMIER, Charles
1705. PLUMIER, Charles. Traité des fougères de l'Amérique. [4], xxxvi, 1-93, 98-146, [10] pp. Illustrated with 172 full-page engravings of ferns. Folio, 167 x 106 mm, bound in contemporary limp vellum, title in MS on spine, pair of fore-edge ties. Preserved in beige linen slipcase. Paris: Imprimerie Royale, 1705. |~||~||~||~||~| First Complete Edition. One of the most beautiful botanical books by one of the era's most important botanical explorers. This publication of Plumier's descriptions and plates of American ferns was compiled by the author the year before his death. In Latin and French. The first half of this volume contains a preface and descriptions to accompany each of the plates, which detail the characteristics of the various species of American ferns depicted. The text is laid out in two parallel columns, with French in Roman and Latin in Italics. The Latin text appeared for the first time in 1703 under the title Filicetum Americanum without illustrations; the present book is the first to contain both the Latin and French text. The first 50 plates originally appeared in 1693 in Plumier's Description des plantes de l'Amerique. The 172 full-page engravings are masterful works of print-making. Plumier's attention to detail allows for precise renderings of the fern's structure and texture. The plants are often printed off-center and/or running off the edge of the page, the bold mise en page gives the viewer a sense that the ferns are sprouting beyond the confines of the book itself. Charles Plumier (1646-1704) was born in Marseilles and entered the religious order o … [Click Below for Full Description]

To Which Is Prefix'd, an Exact Map of the Whole Coast of Guinea, That Was Not in the Original. London: J. Knapton, A. Bell, R. Smith, D. Midwinter, W. Haws, W. Dawn, G. Strahan, B. Lintott, J. Round, and J. Wale, 1705. 1st English ed. [8],493,[19] pp. Frontis. folding map, 7 plates.

Corners worn, rear upper board re-cornered, some light scattered toning and foxing, else a very good copy. The standard work of this period on the Gold Coast. The appearance of this work, both in French and English translations, just one year after the publication of the original Dutch edition, is a sign of the growing European involvement in coastal trading in West Africa. Willem Bosman had spent 14 years trading on the Guinea coast before writing this work. Bosman writes in the form of letters and provides unflattering views of the natives and much information on the factories and forts along the coast. The foldout map by the Dutch cartographer Herman Moll shows the increasing number and variety of coastal settlements by Europeans in the early eighteenth century.

"Den Erfolg und die Beliebtheit seiner Werke im Mittelalter und deren Einfluss auf die Volksfrömmigkeit hat [Gregors einfacher, 'demütiger'] Stil wesentlich mitbegünstigt: seine exegetischen Schriften gehören zu den am häufigsten exzerpierten, seine Dialogi zu den meistgelesen Werken im Mittelalter". - Hübsch ausgestattete Ausgabe, besorgt von den Mauristen, inbesondere Denis de Sainte-Marthe, der hernach die "Gallia Christiana" edierte.

Spencero, Ioanne (John Spencer)
Leipzig: Ioh. Frid. Zeitlerum, 1705. Third edition. Hardcover. vg. Quarto. [20], 1504, [82]pp. Original full vellum with gold-stamped lettering and borders on spine. All edges red. Marbled endpapers. Ex-libris of Biblioth. Collegii Carol and ex-libris of Ducis Brunsvicensis et Luneburgensis at rear of front board. Illustrated woodcut vignette on title-page. Decorative initials, head- and tailpieces. 2 green ribbon markers. In his chief work, Spencer deserted the time-honoured paths traced by commentators, and 'may justly be said to have laid the foundations of the science of comparative religion. In its special subject, in spite of certain defects, it still remains by far the most important book on the religious antiquities of the Hebrews' (Robertson Smith, Religion of the Semites, 1894, Pref. p. vi). The remarkable nature of Spencer's achievement is enhanced when, it is remembered that oriental studies were then in their infancy, and that he was compelled to derive nearly all his data from classical writers of Greece and Rome, from the Christian fathers, the works of Josephus, or from the Bible itself. Spencer professed that his object was 'to clear the Deity from arbitrary and fantastic humour,' but it was inevitable that his orthodoxy should be questioned. 2 small scratches on front board. Minor age-toning on covers. Spine slightly soiled. Contemporary annotation at back of fly leaf. Some sporadic damp-staining on outer margin of pages (never affecting text). Text in Latin with some Hebrew. Binding in overall very good, interior in very good to near fine condition.

The Thirty Years’ War, that had ravaged Europe since 1618, ended the year after her birth, and the resulting Treaty of Westphalia brought about new religious freedoms. This new era of Enlightenment allowed science to blossom. It was this atmosphere that such figures such as Sir Isaac Newton (1643-1727) was able to define the laws of gravity and George Buffon (1707-1788) advanced the evolution debate by exploring the theory that all living creatures are derived from one species that has changed over time. The great English poet, Alexander Pope (1688-1744), summed up this spirit of discovery perfectly, writing: “Know then thyself; presume not God to scan. The proper study of mankind is man.” With the new age of discovery, science more than ever before, came to depend upon the artist’s skill in illustration. Maria Sibylla was born in Frankfurt, Germany on April 2, 1647 to the famous publisher, Matthias Merian, and his second wife, Johanna Sibylla Heim. At the age of three her father died, and one year later her mother married the Dutch painter, Jacob Marrell, also a resident of Frankfurt.

Maria Sibylla Merian
Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) From Metamorphosis Insectorum Surinamensium Amsterdam: 1705 Hand-colored copperplate engraving 20” x 14”; 24” x 28” framed Maria Sybilla Merian (1647-1717) was born into a century of unparalleled change. The Thirty Years’ War, that had ravaged Europe since 1618, ended the year after her birth. The resulting Treaty of Westphalia brought about new religious freedoms. This new era of Enlightenment allowed science to blossom. It was this atmosphere that such figures such as Sir Isaac Newton (1643-1727) was able to define the laws of gravity, and George Buffon (1707-1788) advanced the evolution debate by exploring the theory that all living creatures are derived from one species that has changed over time. The great English poet, Alexander Pope (1688-1744), summed up this spirit of discovery perfectly, writing: “Know then thyself; presume not God to scan. The proper study of mankind is man.” With the new age of discovery, science more than ever before, came to depend upon the artist’s skill in illustration. Maria Sibylla was born in Frankfurt, Germany on April 2, 1647 to the famous publisher, Matthias Merian, and his second wife, Johanna Sibylla Heim. At the age of three her father died, and one year later her mother married the Dutch painter, Jacob Marrell, also a resident of Frankfurt.

Shakespeare, William
London: Printed for R. Wellington, 1705 Seventh and final quarto edition. Lightly browned with some spotting and marginal dampstaining, small stain to title affecting advertisement at foot. Modern speckled tan three-quarter calf and marbled boards, gold-stamped red morocco spine label. Housed in a brown cloth folding box. Quartos represent the earliest and rarest printed material offered by William Shakespeare. Seldomly surviving the 17th century, they were sold unbound and usually used for the stage by actors. Othello was first published in quarto format in 1622 and was then included in the First Folio edition of collected plays. It is one of Shakespeare's most popular tragedies, conveying important lessons about love, war, and racism. The ambiguity of Othello's race is one of the most intriguing and enduring aspects of the play. Although generally described to be dark-skinned, it is unknown whether he is African, Arab, or a dark-skinned European. Othello experiences discrimination while serving as a soldier in Europe, but his devoted wife Desdemona sees him only for his merits. Othello is timeless, warning us of the perils of self-isolation and the necessity of unconditional love.. Hard Cover. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

Coiffe de tête élimée. Frottements. Rousseurs. L'ouvrage n'appartient à aucunu genre défini ; dans une manière très libre, un Siamois conte des anecdotes qu'il mêle de maximes sur divers sujets : Le palais, la cour, le public, le bois de Boulogne, l'opéra... Ces considérations satiriques de la société parisienne, pêle-mêle, ne possèdent pas une narration suivie ; l'oeuvre ouvrira la voie aux lettres persanes de Montesquieu. Elle en est une des principales sources.
