        Gospel-Truth Demonstratedin a collection of Doctrinal Books containing Principles Essential to Christianity and Salvation, held among the People called Quakers

      London -T. Sowle14 by 9; [xii]1090[6]pp., 1706 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A collection of short pieces arranged by the founding father of the Quaker movement himself. George Fox (1624-91) was the son of a textile weaver who by 1650 had inherited a large enough fortune to be without financial concerns. With little education and a deep sense of dissatisfaction with the manner in which religion was practiced in England, he left home on tour in order to seek englightenment. By 1647 he was convinced of the 'inner light' by which God communicates directly with the soul; a conviction which led naturally to the assertion that it was God's calling (and not a degree from a famous university) that endowed a person with the wherewithall to be a minister. Fox spent the rest of his life as a peripatetic; preaching to all and sundry, and exhibiting formidable tolerance when persecuted - a situation he found himself in frequently, given that he opposed Trinitarianism, the collection of tithes, and oath-giving as he found them biblically unjustified. Having been imprisoned on a number of occasions for his activities, Fox urged pacifism in disputes. Fox's followerscame to be calledQuakers, after their behaviour at worship. Fox founded the Society of Friends and travelled the world over, continuing his custom of preaching his understanding of whatever he believed to beGod's will to any who would listen. This volume contains 157 short pieces detailing many such ruminations. Condition: Externally bound in old calf, with contrasting label. Some wear to extremities Internally, on front pastedown a bookplate of William Rawlinson Graithwaite Hall) with, below it, an armorial bookplate (with no name), and the bookplate of Professor David Arthur Pailin; on blank end-paper the signature of Edward Mitford Abraham Swarthmoor Hall.

Errata on final page. Pagination runs '163, [164], 157,166, 167, [168], 159, 160. . . ' at one point. Overall: GOOD..

        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.

Praemittitur Pappi Alexandrini Praefatio ad VIImum Collectionis Mathematicae nunc primum Graece edita, cum Lemmatibus eiusdem Pappi ad hos Apollonii Libros

      Opera & studio Edmundi Halley... Numerous woodcuts in the text. Much Greek printing. 5 p.l., liii, 168 pp. 8vo, cont. panelled calf, remains of label on spine. Oxford: Sheldonian Theatre, 1706. First edition of Halley's translation of Apollonius's "cutting off a ratio" from an Arabic manuscript. This text of Apollonius, like Books V-VII of the Conics, survives only in Arabic, and in this case the Arabic remains unpublished. "Much of Halley's scholarship was exercised upon the works of Apollonius of Perga, one of the greatest mathematicians of antiquity, and indeed of all time, who flourished in the latter part of the third century B.C. One of his minor works, Sectio rationis (Cutting-off of a ratio), an exercise in geometrical algebra, was thought to be lost until an Arabic translation of it was found among the Selden manuscripts in the Bodleian and identified by Edward Bernard, the Savillian Professor of Astronomy. Bernard set about translating it into Latin; but the manuscript was very defective and he soon laid the task aside. His successor, David Gregory, made a fair copy of the original for the use of Henry Aldrich, Dean of Christ Church, at whose invitation Halley, upon succeeding Wallis in the Savillian Chair of Geometry, undertook to complete the translation. He had never previously studied Arabic; but, using as a key the few passages translated by Bernard, he eventually made out the meaning of the text. He proceeded to restore the lost companion tract, Sectio spatii, following hints from Pappus. He gave his reasons for regrading the works as genuine; and he included in his edition the earliest printed Greek text of Pappus's preface to the seventh book of his Synagoge (Collection)."-Angus Armitage, Edmond Halley, p. 160. Five hundred copies of this book were printed and, by 1713, 122 copies were remaindered. From the library of Jacob Bronowski (1908-74), the mathematician, biologist, historian of science, poet, and inventor. .

      LONDON : Erab. Aylmer, Reb. Renwick, Sam. Smith et al , 1706 An extremely rare account of the History of England complete in 3 folio volumes. Edited by John Oldmixon (1673-1742), this account draws on the best works available for each period in history. For example, Sir Thomas Moore's account of Edward V and Richard III was translated for this work, and William Campden's [Camden] work on the life of Elizabeth I is used in volume 2. All 3 volumes are bound in contemporary panelled calf with raised bands and gilt tooling, and all have wear at the joints. The boards are all attached and sound bar wear to corners, but the joints will need attention. 2 title labels are present but not attached. Vol I is 640pp excl index; has the bookplate of Sir John Chester; f/p portrait of Queen Ann; and title page in red & black inks. The f/p is complete but crumpled. Covers history from pre William the Conqueror to King Henry VII, with contributions from John Milton, Samuel Daniel, John Habington, Sir Thomas Moore, George Buck and Francis, Lord Bacon. It has a preface introducing the writers and detailing the value of history study. It also contains an advertisement, outline contents and subscriber list & index. With 20 full page high quality plates incl the f/p - one for each monarch. Contents in VG condition - p 191 has lost a bottom corner w/o text loss and some pages have light browning. With printer error to page 157 - Richard becomes 'Richrad'. Vol II is 792 pp excl index; has bookplate as above; title page in red/black inks; and covers Henry VIII to James I. Authors are Rt Hon Edward Lord Herbert of Cherbury, Sir John Hayward, Francis Godwin, William Campden and Arthur Wilson. With 5 full page plates. The front endpaper is crumpled; the first section is loose and there is some browning in the outer margin (about 2 inches long) with some loss not affecting text that runs through pp1-13. Pp 779-781 have crumpled edges. Vol III is 849 pp excl index, and covers the period from Charles I to William III and was written by White Kennett (1660-1728) who became Bishop of Peterborough. It has 5 full page plates. With title page in red/black inks and bookplate as above. Some pages in this volume are brown stained but still readable, which appears to relate to the paper used in those pages as there is no water damage. There is some browning and page loss to the index but no text is missing.

Exemplar com título de posse da época sobre a folha de rosto. INOCÊNCIO I, 388: "Frei Boaventura Machado, Franciscano, chamado no século Simão Machado, nome pelo qual ficou sendo entre nós mais conhecido. Foi natural de Torres Novas. Professou a regra de S. Francisco em Castela, no convento de Barcelona. Vê se que ainda vivia em 1632, pois nesse ano imprimiu a obra que logo mencionarei. O pouco que dele se sabe acha-se também consignado no Ensaio biográfico crítico de Costa e Silva, tomo VI de pag. 106 a 153, onde vem longamente analisadas as comédias que dele nos restam. «COMEDIAS PORTUGUEZAS feitas pelo excellente poeta Simão Machado. A Dom Francisco de Saa de Menezes, Conde de Penaguyão, Camareiro mór de Sua Magestade etc. Comedias do Cerco de Dio, primeira e segunda parte. Comedias da Pastora Alfea, primeira e segunda parte. N’esta segunda impressão emendadas e acrescentados dous entremeses, e quatro loas famosas. Lisboa, por Antonio Alvares 1631. 4.º As loas e entremezes acrescentados são escriptos em castelhano». Saíram novamente em terceira impressão, Lisboa, por Antonio Pedroso Galrão 1706 4.º de IV 212 pag. Barbosa indica uma primeira edição, mas só das comedias de Dio, feita em 1601 por Pedro Craesbeeck, a qual ainda não tive ocasião de ver. A edição de 1631, que é a mais estimada, tem valido de 1:600 réis até 2:400. A de 1706, feita em péssimo papel, maus tipos, e sobremaneira incorrecta, é contudo procurada na falta da anterior, e tem se tornado pouco menos rara que ela. Possuo um exemplar comprado por 800 réis, porém sei que alguns se venderam até por 1:200. José Maria da Costa e Silva ao terminar a sua análise das comédias de que se trata, diz a respeito delas e do seu autor: «Simão Machado foi um génio eminentemente dramático, igual a Gil Vicente na facilidade do diálogo, e muito superior a ele na contextura dos dramas, na variedade dos lances, e no desenho e desempenho dos caracteres. As comédias de Alphea executadas por bons actores, e decoradas com o necessário aparato por maquinistas hábeis, e boas pinturas, ainda hoje seriam muito aplaudidas no teatro como dramas mágicos. Foi na verdade uma desgraça para a cena portuguesa que ele a abandonasse tão cedo para meter-se frade. Se tivesse continuado na carreira encetada, emestrado pelo uso, e pela experiencia, quem sabe até onde um génio tão raro poderia levantar o vôo?». É para lamentar que este nosso dramático não seja mais conhecido, e que ainda se não empreendesse uma edição correcta e aprimorada das obras que dele nos restam, trabalho que nínguem deixaria de ter por um serviço de grande valia as nossas letras, tornando assim mais vulgar a leitura destas peças, que hoje estão ao alcance de muito poucos".

Keith arrived in Boston in 1702 as a representative of the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts, having renounced his previous fanatical attachment to Quakerism. His travels from New England to Carolina during the two subsequent years had him sermonizing before a good number of congregations, as well as taking part in several pamphlet controversies (Sabin attributes some fifty-two titles to him; see Reese's bibliography of Keith's American publications). He preached in Yorktown, Williamsburg, Jamestown, and other locations along the coast, and made a name for himself by taking on the "stubborn and irascible inhabitants" of the colonies.

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.

      London: Samuel Smith and Benjamin Walford, 1706 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. First Latin edition. 219 leaves, [14] 1-348, 1-24, [2] 1-24, 21-43 [1] pp. 19 folding engraved plates, some damp spots to first few leaves, wormtrails and holes in margins and just affecting last two or three plates, contemporary vellum, remnants of leather spine label. ---- Babson 137; Wallis 179, Norman 1589. - The first edition of OPTICKS was printed two years earlier in English and without Newton's customary use of editorial assistance. He then employed Samuel Clarke to make a Latin translation with the addition of seven new Queries. At the end of the book are two mathematical treatises, DE QUADRATURA and ENUMERATIO LINEARUM TERTII ORDINIS, which Newton added to establish his priority over Leibniz in the invention of the calculus. Next to the PRINCIPIA, the OPTICKS stands as Newton's greatest work. Much of the a OPTICKS was written thirty years earlier and finally put into print in 1704, just a few months after Newton assumed the chair as President of the Royal Society. It summarized his discoveries and theories concerning light and color, the spectrum of sunlight, the degrees of refraction associated with different colors, the color circle, the invention of the reflecting telescope, the first workable theory of the rainbow, and interference effects in conjunction with Newton's rings. It expounds his corpuscular or emission theory of light..

        Cockatoo (Cacatuidae)

      Johann Leonhard Frisch had a diverse career, working as a singer, an interpreter in the German army, a headmaster of a school in Berlin, and finally artist and publisher. After settling in Berlin, Frisch became a member of the Society of Sciences in 1706, under the recommendation of the German mathematician Gottfried Leibnitz. Frisch was interested in natural history and collected specimens to form his own ?Cabinet of Curiousities.? His drawings of birds from this collection would later become the basis for this publication, which included 252 bird illustrations. This Cockatoo, measuring 25" x 19.75", is vibrantly colored with a rich blue watercolor and gouache background, highlighting the pure white and crimson of this decorative cockatoo. Fine lines detail each of the Cockatoo?s feathers and its decorative headpiece, in a realistic manner, as it is perched on a tree branch.

        A CHART OF THE SEA COASTS OF NEW NEDER LAND, VIRGINIA, NEW-ENGLAND, AND PENN-SILVANIA, WITH THE CITTY OF PHILADELPHIA, FROM BASTON TO CABO KARRIK. [with insets:] DE STADT PHILADELPHIA OF PENN-SILVANIA [and] DE BAY VAN BOSTON

      Amsterdam. [ca. 1706].. Engraved map. Sheet size: 21 1/4 x 24 3/4 inches. Insets of Philadelphia (after Thomas Holme) and Boston Harbor. With wide margins, overall a strong impression. Provenance: Martin P. Snyder. A beautifully printed example of the Doncker-van Keulen chart of the American coast from the Outer Banks of North Carolina to Boston. An exceptionally fine example of a classic Dutch sea chart of the northeast American coast, with insets of Holme's plan of Philadelphia and Boston Harbor. First issued by the well- known Dutch publisher of maritime works, Hendrick Doncker (1626-99) in 1688, this striking chart of the northeast coast of North America was one of many Doncker plates acquired by Johannes van Keulen (1654-1715), who also took over Doncker's store and made it into a workshop. He reissued this chart with various changes (most notably reworking the cartouche of the original into the inset of Boston Harbor). The chart in its new form appeared around 1706. Hendrick Doncker was one of several Amsterdam chartmakers who played an important role in the brief Dutch ascendancy at sea. Colom, Goos, Lootsman, van Loon, and the van Keulens provided the ever improving charts for the ever increasing merchant fleet, and the ever increasing map reading public. As Koeman notes, Doncker appears to have been one of the more assiduous of the chartmakers, making corrections and improvements and replacing obsolete charts with new ones, when the general tendency was to re-print the existing charts as long as possible. His store sold atlases, pilot guides, navigational instruments and individual charts. Very near the end of his life, he sold most of the business to Johannes van Keulen, who had a shop across the street. With his son Gerard (1678-1724), who had an aptitude for the navigational sciences, they gradually established the predominant house for navigational publications, to the extent that all sea atlases were referred to as "Van Keulens" in later years. The inset of Philadelphia is derived from the Dutch edition of Thomas Holme's famous 1683 plan. Its inclusion and the large inset of Boston Bay reminds us that the Dutch were primarily merchants rather than settlers, interested in profit, not Utopias. BURDEN 644 (note). KOEMAN IV: Keu 113B.
