      Amsterdam: Ex Officina Wetsteniana, 1706. n. Hardcover. 318 x 203 mm (12 1/2 x 8"). Two volumes. HANDSOME CONTEMPORARY AMSTERDAM PRIZE BINDINGS, elaborately and handsomely gilt, covers with two elegant floral frames incorporating the arms of Amsterdam, inner frame with oblique armorial cornerpieces, large coat of arms at center framed by foliage and surmounted by an allegorical vignette, raised bands flanked by gilt floral rolls, spine panels with gilt coat of arms, two green silk ties. Ornate engraved frontispiece and allegorical title page, one double-page engraved plate depicting an assortment of medallions. Parallel texts in Greek and Latin, with very lengthy annotations in both languages. With an engraved certificate attesting to the scholarship of Jacob Johannes Ott, signed by the Rector of the public school at Amsterdam and dated 26 March 1830. Brunet IV, 785-86. Centerpiece on front board of volume I slightly abraded, minor loss of gilt here and there on the covers and spines, otherwise IN VERY FINE CONDITION, the bindings entirely tight, virtually unworn, and almost without soiling, and the text unusually clean and fresh, with no signs of use. This attractively ornate prize binding adorns an important source of information on classical Greek culture and literature, in a bilingual edition that William Smith describes as "very valuable." The second century Greek sophist and grammarian Julius Pollux compiled this thesaurus for students, providing them with lists of the most important words and quotations on a range of topics. Organized by subject rather than alphabetically, the 10 books in the volumes cover gods, kings, commerce, manufacturing, war, and agriculture; parts of the human body; politics and interpersonal relationships; branches of knowledge and science; hunting and animals; meals and crimes; the trades; the justice system; towns, buildings, coins, and games; and various vessels. As Smith observes in "A Dictionary of Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology," "in consequence of the loss of the great number of lexicographical works from which Pollux compiled his Onomasticon, this book has become one of the greatest value for acquiring a knowledge of Greek antiquity, and explains many subjects which are known to us from no other source. It has also preserved many fragments of lost writers, and the great number of authors quoted in the work may be seen by a glance at the long list given in Fabricius (Bibl. Graec. vol. vi. p. 145, &c.)." When compared with other Dutch prize bindings of the period pictured in the British Library Database of Bookbindings, the present example is significantly more lavish and attractive than the norm in its decoration. Our binder has incorporated the arms of Amsterdam no fewer than 69 times on each of the volumes, the intricate rolls that form the cover panels are refined and elegant, and the large and elaborate device in the center of each cover is beautifully designed and impressed. A very pleasing feature--and a clear indication of how little the volume has been used--is the presence of its intact original ribbon ties.

        Passion Flower

      - Born in Nuremberg, Barbara Regina Dietzch (1706-1783) was Dietzch was the daughter of Johann Dietzsch Israel, a renowned painter, draftsman and etcher in his own right. Barbara discovered her artistic skills as a young child studying and practicing in her fathers workshop and she developed a technique of watercolor over gold leaf on vellum that had never been attempted before. Barbara had a considerable influence over many still life natural history artists of the period and her watercolors were strongly collected during her lifetime by her fellow artists. The rich, dark backgrounds of her paintings give a dimensional quality to the finely detailed forms of the botanicals and their subtle coloring. This beautiful painting of a Passion Flower, measures 20" x 17" and is in excellent condition. The rich background highlights the delicate blue-green hues of the leaves, bringing life and a realism to the flower.

        Voyages du Baron de La Hontan dans l'Amerique Septentrionale . [Second volume title: Memoires de l'Amerique Septentrionale, ou la suite des Voyages .] Seconde edition, revue, corrigé, & augmentée

      chez Charles Delo, The Hague 1706 - Contemporary calf, covers ruled in blind, spine in six compartments with raised bands, red morocco labels in the second and third compartments, the others with repeat overall tooling in gilt, marbled endpapers and edges, expert repairs to head and foot of spines, contained within a single modern dark red morocco-backed cloth box, "spine" gilt A very fine set of this early edition of a work "written by a man of more than ordinary learning and intelligence" (Sabin). Scarce edition, the second in this form. Lahontan's earlier works (often viewed as a three volume set), are here issued as a two-volume set by the omission of the extraneous voyages to Portugal and Denmark, and a selection was made from the Dialogues. "Lahontan came to America in 1683 & spent the next few years among the Indians & at the frontier posts of the St. Lawrence & the Lakes. Wintering at Michilimackinac in 1688, Lahontan listened to the tales of the coureurs de bois and heard of the famous Rivière Longue, which Charlevoix called pure fiction [and Howes "about as convincing as the legends of the sea-serpent"]. The popularity of his book was rivalled only by Hennepin's. It is of much value as a clear and fearless picture of Canada and the Canadians of his day. His book has a charm which brings one back to it again . . . for spirit and brightness there is nothing in Canadian literature which approaches it, save some of the earlier letters of Lamothe Cadillac" (Larned). Howes L-25; cf. Sabin 38641. (6 x 3 5/8 inches). Titles in red and black. Engraved additional title, 26 plates and maps (including 2 large folding maps, 22 other folding plates or maps).

        Petition Signed, in French with translation or summary in English, (Paul, tenant farmer of La Basse Cour de Moulins, parish of St. Rémy du Plain, Maine)

      1706 - to the Seneschal of Maine "or to the Lieutenant General in the Seneschalcy and President's Seat of Justice of Le Mans", signed also by his barrister Louis Brizbare, saying that the land depends on the "Abbaye de la Couture", and that "he had been appointed commissary of Maître Pierre Menaut, Steward Sequestrator of . the temporals of the said Abbey vacant by the decease of Monsieur de Chamilly, to the extent of half the fruit and grain planted on the said land by the late Paul Foullard and Catherine Adam his wife", but that the local poll-tax collectors for 1705 had laid claim on it for the part planted by Foullard, the Petitioner has harvested, threshed and winnowed the said grain, but as he still has to face the loss of half, to be discharged from his commission, and to recover all his expenses including "travel, attendance and threshing", he petitions to be allowed to auction the grain "on a feast day or Sunday in the Cemetery at the end of Vespers at the parish church . before the senior royal notary", the appropriate signed orders follow, stamp at head with the arms of Le Mans, 4 sides 4to., Le Mans, no date. and 16th-24th July slight fading on final page The orders appoint Maitre Guillaume le Riche to oversee the auction (signed by Lahureau, fee 2s.), inform Menaut it will go ahead, whether or not he attends (signed by Jean Fouché, "1st huissier of audience at the King's Bench of Water and Forest for Maine", fee paid 8s. 6d.) and a similar notice to Ambroise Faudorre, widow Catherine Adam, his wife, and poll-tax collectors Louis Boucher, Clément Bedouin, Clément Guillereaux, Jean Butet and Mathurin Quelquejeu, (signed by Jean Foussenon, Royal Sergeant of the Seneschalcy, fee paid 17s.).

        Traité des pertes de sang de quelque espéce qu'elles soient ; avec leur remède spécifique nouvellement découvert par Helvétius. Accompagné de sa lettre sur la nature et la guérison du cancer. Seconde édition revüe & augmentée.

      Paris, L. d¿Houry, 1706. - 1 vol. in-12, (16), 176 pp., 1 planche dépliante ; pleine basane de l'époque, manque la pièce de titre, coiffe supérieure arasée, coupes frottées, coins émoussés, très petits manques de cuir. Les huit dernières pages (« Addition de quelques remedes singuliers ») ont été barrées d'un trait et il a été ajouté, sans doute de la main de l'auteur, la note suivante : " L'imprimeur a eu l'insolence d'ajouter cette addition." Dans la première partie, l'auteur propose un remède spécifique à base d'alun contre les hémorragies. La lettre sur la nature et la guérison du cancer occupe les pages 115 à 168. La première édition de cette lettre (Paris, Jean Cusson, 1691; in-4, 18 pp.), est fort rare. Helvétius a le mérite d'insister sur l'importance du diagnostic précoce (« Le cancer n'est au commencement qu'une bagatelle »). D'une façon générale, Helvétius estime que l'extirpation est nécessaire, lorsqu'elle est possible. La planche illustre la ¿tenette¿ inventée par l'auteur ¿pour tenir le cancer¿. Cette tenette, qui prit le nom de son inventeur, semble avoir été utilisée pendant 2 à 3 décennies. Les abstentionnistes dénonçaient les douleurs effroyables de l'intervention et J.B.Alliot appela la tenette d'Helvétius « l'instrument de douleur ». Jean Adrien Helvétius (1661-1727), qui naquit en Hollande, d'un père médecin, vint à Paris, où il se maria et devint français. Il guérit le dauphin à l¿aide de l'ipéca, remède qu'il dévoila après avoir fait fortune (le roi lui acheta sa formule 1000 louis d¿or). L'un de ses fils, Jean-Claude-Adrien, fut le premier médecin de la reine. Son petit-fils, Claude-Adrien, deviendra célèbre comme philosophe. P.Darmon, Les cellules folles, p. 81 ; D.

Er gab zahlreiche Landkarten heraus, die sich durch Eleganz und Schärfe von den früheren Karten unterschieden. - Der breite weiße Rand wurde zeitgenössisch eigens aufmontiert, vermutlich wegen der enormen Blattgröße.

Desde la página 317 hasta el final: refiere las fiestas de Cañas, justas y toros que celebró la ciudad y el valor y destreza de muchos caballeros que concurrieron a ellas. Hay otros tres romances donde se refieren otras tantas corridas de toros. =José Tafalla Negrete (1636-1696) fue un poeta y jurista español, «Abogado de los Reales Consejos de Aragón», que desarrolló su actividad entre Zaragoza y Madrid. Su obra poética consiste fundamentalmente en poemas descriptivos, introduciendo algunos de los elementos que definirán el pensamiento ilustrado, como la importancia de la razón y su identificación con la luz, la aceptación de la educación de la mujer, la identificación de nobleza con virtud, y, estilísticamente, la sencillez y los periodos simples, con escasez de hipérbatos. Entre ellos hay muchos villancicos, jácaras y jacarandinas sobre santos. Sus temas, habitualmente cotidianos, anecdóticos y triviales. =El libro que presentamos editado póstumamente, Contiene 382 poemas, de los que 183 son romances, 68 décimas, 45 sonetos, 36 quintillas, 17 letras líricas, 8 redondillas, 6 canciones petrarquistas, 4 silvas, 4 madrigales, 4 seguidillas, 3 chambergas, 2 liras y 2 octavas reales. Pedro Miguel de Samper dijo: "Bien grande es la [utilidad] que encierran estas poesías de don José Tafalla, pues no siendo inferiores a los énfasis heroicos de Góngora, a las dulces suavidades de Lope, a las provechosas moralidades de los Leonardos, a la propiedad de frases de Ulloa, a los profundos conceptos de Solís, a las saladas discreciones de Montoro, ni a los vivos picantes de Quevedo, brilla con una especial gracia, que no se encuentra en los otros."

The Norwegian Meidel was sent to London as Lutheran priest but came into contact with the quakers and eventually converted to their faith. In his preface Meidel writes about the reasons for his convertion and the opposition he had met from his countrymen. Meidel had missionized for the Quaker-religion in Norway and encouraged especially "common people" to emigrate to Pennsylvania, which led him to be expatriated in 1703. In 1705 Meidel published a danish translation of a work by William Penn and later he translated works by Robert Barclay, all these were printed in London. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

With 2 engraved title-pages, 6 half-titles, 105 engraved plates depicting beetles, beautifully hand-coloured, a few highlighted with gold, plates interleaved. Contemporary darkbrown half-morocco, spine with gold-tooled title and neoclassical patterns, marbled sides and endpapers.

      BMC NH, p. 2231; Hagen II, p. 244; Horn & Schenkling 22791; Nissen, ZBI 4259; NNBW X, cols 1127-1128. Beautifully illustrated study on beetles by Johann Eusebius Voet (1706-1778). Johann's father, Carel Borchart Voet (1671-1744 or 1745), who was employed as court painter by the Earl of Portland, had made a series of drawings of insects for King William. Johann followed in his father's footsteps and, in addition to his activities as a medical doctor and his numerous works on new versions of rhymed psalms, worked on the present systematic catalogue of beetles. Voet gives a general introduction followed by a description of the depicted species. In each volume, the text is given first in Latin, then in French and finally in Dutch, each with its own pagination and signature series. During Voet's life the first 48 plates of volume I and the first 24 plates of volume II with the accompanying text in three languages were published. The publisher Gerrit Bakhuyzen approached the heirs and received permission to publish the remaining drawings and papers. The work has been dedicated by Bakhuyzen to Adriana van Sorgen, widow of C.B. Voet, who must have been one of the heirs. The beautiful engraved plates have been accurately drawn and skilfully hand-coloured.With the bookplate of "Le C[om]te Ferdinand du Chastel" on inside front covers, some slight, occasional browning in margins, pl. 41 in volume I double.

This lexicon/encyclopaedia offers also 'Realia', and is a repertorium of 'loci classici' and a source of numerous 'variae lectiones'. (NP 6,51/52, s.v. Iulius IV,17). 'The honour of reviving the study of Greek in the Netherlands belongs to Tiberius Hemsterhuis (1685-1766)'. (Sandys 2,447). At the age of 21 he accomplished the task of completing an edition of Pollux, a project that was abandoned by J.H. Lederlin. In 1717 he was promoted to a professorship of Greek at the university of Franeker, which was the start of the 'Schola Hemsterhusiana'. His best known pupil there was L.C. Valckenaer. In 1740 he left for Leyden 'where, for a quarter of a century he kept the flag of Greek flying in the foremost of the Dutch universities'. His most famous student in Leyden was D. Ruhnken, who wrote in 1768 a 'Elogium' on him which 'is one of the Classics in the history of scholarship'. (Sandys 2,451) The 'Schola Hemsterhusiana' is famous for the publishing of many works of ancient lexicographers. Hemsterhuis advised his students to use especially ancient lexica. These works could be of great use for the understanding of textual problems and the amending of texts of classical authors, and they were of great help to gain a profound knowledge of the Greek language and its vocabulary.

He made there a deep impression on the young Alexander Sizoo, later professor at the Free University of Amsterdam. 'Berlage was vooral de aestheticus, die zijn leerlingen ook in aanraking bracht met de klassieke beeldhouwkunst'. (Jaarboek van de Nederlandse Maatschappij der letterkunde, 1962, p. 155; Berlage wrote a dissertation 'Commentatio de Euripide philosopho', Leiden, 1888) (Collation: a6, b-e4, f6; A-4Q4 4R2 4S-8O4, a-y4 z6) Photographs on request..

        Optice: Sive de reflexionibus, refractionibus, inflexionibus & coloribus lucis

      London: Sam. Smith & Benj. Walford, 1706. <p>Newton, Isaac (1642-1727). Optice. . . . 4to. [14], 348, [2], 24, [2], 43, [1]pp. Leaf Ss1 a cancel. 19 folding engraved plates. London: Sam. Smith & Benj. Walford, 1706. 239 x 188 mm. Paneled calf ca. 1706, rebacked, endpapers renewed, a bit rubbed, corners reinforced. First and last leaves a bit soiled and stained, but otherwise a very good, crisp copy. 18th century owner&#146;s signature (A. Worden of Trinity College, Dublin), dated 1740, on title.</p><p>First Edition in Latin of Newton&#146;s Opticks (1704), the most famous English book on optics. This edition contains seven added quaestiones (nos. 17-23), which are partly devoted to Newton&#146;s support for the corpuscular (or emission) theory of light, not found in the English edition. &#147;In the new Queries, Newton expressed fundamental views on the nature of light, on the nature of bodies, on the relation of God to the physical universe, and on the presence in nature of a whole range of forces which furnish the activity necessary for the operation of the world and for its permanence. . . . The new Queries were the most informative of the speculations that Newton ever published&#148; (Westfall, Never at Rest, p. 644). The Latin edition also includes the two mathematical works at the end as in the English edition. As in most copies of this work leaf Ss1 is a cancel; the leaf was replaced because Newton had second thoughts about his original description of universal space as &#147;the sensorium of God&#148; (sensorium Dei). The Latin Optice, which made Newton&#146;s work on optics available to all European scientists, &#147;revolutionized scientific thought and made him recognized as one of the greatest geniuses of all time&#148; (Birren, History of Color in Painting, p. 20).

        Bibliotheca Bigotiana seu catalogus librorum

      Paris: J. Boudot, C. Osmont, G. Martin, 1706. <p>First Paris Book Auction for which a Catalogue was Printed </p><p>[Bigot.] Bibliotheca Bigotiana seu catalogus librorum, quos (dum viverent) summa cura & industria, ingentique sumptu congessere viri clarissimi DD. uterque Joannes, Nicolaus, & Lud. Emericus Bigotii . . . 12mo. [8], 72, [2], 73-220, [2], 248, 59, [1], 31, [1], 31pp. Paris: Apud Joannem Boudot, Carolum Osmont, Gabrielem Martin, 1706. 161 x 94 mm. Calf, gilt spine ca. 1706, light wear. Very good. A few marginal notes in ink and pencil, including possible prices realized. 19th century bookplates of the Car[dinal] de Beaurepaire and Germain Barré. </p><p>First Edition. The Bigot library sale in 1706 was the first book auction conducted in Paris for which a catalogue was printed. The sale by auction of the Bigot family library was conducted by booksellers Jean Boudot, Charles Osmont and Gabriel Martin over the remarkably long duration of five months. This was Gabriel Martin&#146;s first catalogue, &#147;and according to Bléchet, Jean-Pierre Nicéron was an editor&#148; (North, Printed Catalogues of French Book Auctions and Sales by Private Treaty 1643-1830 in the Library of the Grolier Club, no. 12). Prior to this auction several auction catalogues for private libraries had been printed in Paris, but these libraries were sold privately and thus never went to auction. </p><p>Bookseller, publisher and writer Prosper Marchand organized and catalogued the sale for Boudot, Martin and Osmont. One of the ways in which the catalogue was notable was in its introduction into bookselling of the classification scheme organizing information into five great divisions: Theology, jurisprudence, philosophy (i.e., sciences and arts), belles-lettres and history. Gabriel Martin, one of the auctioneers of the Bigot library, promoted this scheme, which originated in the seventeenth century and may have first been applied in the Catalogus bibliothecae Thuanae (1679), the catalogue of the library of French historian and bibliophile Jacques Auguste de Thou. Book auctions in France would follow this scheme throughout the 18th century, and in the early 19th century Jacques Charles Brunet elaborated on this basic scheme in his famous Manuel du librairie et de l&#146;amateur de livres (1810). </p><p>The Bigot library was begun by Jean Bigot in the early 17th century, and continued by his son, Louis-Emery. It eventually passed to Robert Bigot, sieur de Monville, and was sold at his death in 1706. The library included that of Jean Henri Jacques de Mesmes, for whom Gabriel Naudé, de Mesmes&#146; librarian, had written Avis pour dresser une bibliothèque in 1627. At the time of sale the Bigot library consisted of 450 manuscripts and over 15,000 printed books. </p><p>At the Bigot auction many books and all the manuscripts were purchased for the Bibliothèque du Roi. Over 150 years later the Bigot manuscripts were catalogued by Léopold Delisle as Bibliotheca Bigotiana Manuscripta. Catalogue des manuscrits rassemblés aux XVIIe siecle par les Bigot, mis en vente au mois de juillet 1706, aujourdhui conservé aux Bibliothèque nationale (1877).

Occasional light browning to pages, otherwise a very good clean tight copy of a rare travel book. There is very little information about Robert Coverte. Although styled on the title page as Captain Robert Covert, it seems he was steward on the 'Ascension' which sailed from Plymouth in 1607. The vessel ran aground going into Surat, the primary port of the Moghul Empire, but the crew escaped ashore in boats. An English merchant introduced them to the court of the Great Mogul at Agra arriving in December 1609. Coverte with his companions started out for home from Agra at the beginning of 1610 choosing to travel overland through Kandahar, Esfahan, and Baghdad. They reached Aleppo in December 1610 and then took a ship back to England arriving in April 1611. Coverte's account of his travels was first published in London in 1612 and again in 1614.
