        PANAMA: THE SCOTTISH ‘DARIEN SCHEME’: A DRAFT OF THE GOLDEN & ADJACENT ISLANDS, WITH PART OF YE ISTHMUS OF DARIEN AS IT WAS TAKEN BY CAPT. JENEFER. WHERE YE SCOTS WEST-INDIA COMPANY WERE SETTELED [WITH:] A NEW MAP OF YE ISTHMUS OF DARIEN IN AMERICA, THE B.

      - Prior to 1707, Scotland was a separate nation from England, even though the two kingdoms were ruled by the same monarch. While England had a burgeoning global empire, Scotland had no colonies and was eager to enter the realm of global imperialism and trade. From 1698 to 1700 she endeavored to set up her own colony of ‘New Caledonia’ on a remote section of the Caribbean cast of Panama known as the Isthmus of Darien. The present map sheet features two attractive and fascinating maps depicting and contextualizing the so-called ‘Darien Scheme’. The upper map, A Draft of the Golden & Adjacent Islands, focuses closely in on the main Scots base of ‘New Edinburg’ and the adjacent area. The lower map depicts the greater region, extending from Nicaragua, in the northwest, over the Colombia, in the southeast. It shows that, in theory, New Caledonia occupied a strategic location that could potentially become a great entrepôt of trade between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Historical Context During the mid-1690s, Scotland was in an ebullient mood. It’s economy was buzzing and it finances seemed to be on a stable and progressive footing upon the establishment of the Bank of Scotland in 1695. Yet, the Scots were envious of the vast wealth flowing into London from England’s overseas colonial ventures, most notably the West Indies sugar trade and the profits yielded by the English East India Company (EIC). As many Scots had served and thrived in English colonial service, Scotland felt confident that it had both the financial and human resources to find its own place in the sun. In 1695, the Scottish parliament ratified the ‘Company of Scotland Trading to Africa and the Indies’ to manage Scotland’s overseas ventures. The Company had credibility as it was led by William Patterson, the founder of the Bank of Scotland, who was universally regarded as a ‘safe pair of hands’. The Company’s prospects sparked almost obsessive euphoria amongst the country’s elite, as merchants and nobleman flocked to buy shares. Within a short time, the Company had soaked up at least 25% of Scotland’s liquid capital! The Scottish Company’s main strike was the ‘Darien Scheme,’ a design to establish New Caledonia at the Isthmus of Darien. This was a daring plan, as it involved setting up a Protestant colony amidst a region that had long been claimed and dominated by Spain. Indeed, while Spain had long developed Central Panama and much of the Caribbean coast of New Granada (Colombia), the Darien had been a blank spot that she had generally avoided. As the Scots would soon find out, this was for good reason. In 1698, the Scottish company established New Edinburgh at this site noted on the map, and over the next year 3,000 colonists arrived. Almost immediately the dream became as a nightmare. The Darien was a hellish place full of mosquitos, malaria, yellow fever, torrential rain, and unwelcoming natives. In 1699, the Spaniards attacked and sacked the colony. The Scots abandoned the endeavour in 1700, with only 10% of the colonists surviving to make it home. The spectacular failure of New Caledonia was not only a national humiliation, but a financial catastrophe that plunged Scotland into a deep recession. Many prominent investors were brought to bankruptcy and Scotland’s heavily-leveraged government was unable to pay its debts. England opportunistically offered to pay off Scotland’s debt and to stabilize its economy in return for Scotland agreeing to give up it independence. Scotland accepted the deal and the Act of Union was signed in 1707, forming the United Kingdom. From that day onwards, Scots would play a disproportionately large role in overseas colonial ventures, however, it would be under the Union Jack, as opposed to the Solitaire. The present map is the second edition of the map, having been published by John Senex within his New General Atlas (London, 1721). The first edition was issued in 1699 by William Hacke and Robert Morden and is identical to the present

      Leyden: Pieter van der Aa, [1707?].. [28]pp., printed in double columns (with the actual printed foliations, totaling 50, referring to the columns). Folding map and three in-text illustrations. Folio. Modern three-quarter cloth and marbled boards, spine gilt. Faint stain in upper outer corner of most text leaves. Closed tear in foremargin of leaf A1. Good. The Frank C. Deering copy, with his gilt leather bookplate on the front free endpaper. Dickenson's harrowing narrative was first published in Philadelphia in 1699, and in London in 1700 and 1701. All of those editions are rare, the first being exceedingly so. The next edition came out in 1707, by Dutch printer Pieter van der Aa, who produced folio and octavo versions, both of which were the first to contain illustrations. This is the scarcer folio edition. Dickenson's story is not exactly an Indian captivity narrative, although often considered such. He and his companions were shipwrecked on the Florida coast in 1696 and walked several hundred miles north to St. Augustine and safety. Indians stole from them and harassed them, but little else. The map shows the eastern seaboard of the United States, as well as Cuba, Hispaniola, and Jamaica. The three engravings show Dickenson's tribulations at the hands of the Florida Indians.

        Biblia. Das ist die ganze heilige Schrift Altes und Neues Testaments/ verteuscht durch D. Martin Luthern/

      Leipzig: Verlag Johann Ludewig Bleditsch, 1707. Full Vellum. Good. Folio, 37 by 24 cm. 14 cm thick. Leaves are numbered, not pages, and so the page count is double, plus plates. [25], 328, 134, 94, 179 leaves, with a total of 248 full-page engraved plates. (By sections, Old Testament up to the Prophets: 135 plates, the Prophets, 11 plates, the Apocrypha, 6 plates, the New Testament, 96 plates.) Our copy has considerably more plates than described on OCLC, which gives the plate count as 135. While this number is in accord with the plate count for the first section, we would note that otherwise the leaf count is near identical with our collation. This OCLC summation does suggest there are maps -- there are none in our copy, and we believe that this is a misdescription, as there is no evidence of anything removed from our copy, and we collated every text page for completeness. Vellum heavily worn and darkened, with loss at spine head and the vellum lifted from adjoining boards at top. Tears along lower edge as well. Lacking FFEP and possibly prelim. blanks. The first leaf hanging by a thread, and the hinge is loose, affecting the first few gatherings. Roughness to the early leaves, with a few tears, corner creases and typical heavy wear that afflicts old bibles in Genesis. Three of the early plates have longish closed tears -- several inches each. By the end of Genesis the condition has improved and stabilized, and most of the leaves that follow, throughout the Old and New Testaments, are well-preserved -- they have age toning and some scattered soiling, but they read mostly clean. A few of the later plates and text leaves have minor chips or marginal losses. In only two instances is text lost, and only in one of these would it rise above trivial, without being a substantial portion of the page (it is about three inches of a corner). One leave number, for leaf 324, is flipped to "342", but otherwise the text flows as it should.

      London : M Fenour, for John Nicholson; and Robert Knaplock, 1707 A good copy of the 2nd enlarged edition in contemporary full leather binding with 5 double page plates, 70 full page engravings and 2 double page genealogical tables. This edition was brought up to date by Samuel Stebbing, who added material for the years from 1677 to 1707, to Sandford's substantial work begun when he was Lancaster Herald of Arms in Charles II's reign. The quality of the work - from the material, to the paper, to the illustration - is very high, with some of the paper resembling light card. This copy was owned by Henry, Duke of Kent (1671-1740); Thomas Philip de Grey (2nd Earl of Grey - known as Lord Grantham - 1781-1859), and the Drummond Clan. There are armorial bookplates for all three on the front pastedown and fep - the Drummond plate with the motto 'Gang Warily'. The contemporary full leather binding is complete, but the spine joints have worn and there is wear to corners, with leather loss, and some damage to the title label on the spine, which has raised bands and elaborate gilt decoration. There is a gilt border to the boards. The page edges are lightly speckled. The endpapers are marbled with repair (failed) to the front endpapers; and the verso's and 2 initial and final blanks have spotting. The second initial blank has some creasing and repair. This copy has been priced to take account of the cost of binding repair. Internally, the contents are in very good condition. With title page in red and black; dedication 2pp; To the Reader 2pp; subscribers list 2pp; half title to Book I; text with illustrations in text, including headpieces, and full page and genealogical tables 878pp. Structured in 7 books with half titles for each present.Index 26pp and errata 1p.

        Tabula Selenographica in qua Lunarium Macularum exacta Descriptio secundum Nomenclaturam Praestantissimorum Astronomorum tam Hevelii quam Riccioli Curiosis Rei Sidereae Cultoribus exhibetur Joh. Babr. Doppelmajero Math. P.P. upera Joh. Baptistae Homanni Norinbergae. Undated 1707 or 1742

      GORGEOUS HAND-COLORED EARLY 18th c. DOUBLE HEMISPHERE MAP OF THE SURFACE OF THE MOON - based upon the models of Johannes Hevelius and Giovanni Riccioli, this map is the first comparative chart of the Moon. Both spheres illustrate the same side of the Moon and each is topographically detailed, offering a greater than 360 degree viewing with all visible features weighted equally. The left hand map is by Hevelius with place names rendered in his nomenclature; the right hand map is by Riccioli with place names rendered in his nomenclature. Though the two systems of naming would go on to compete with each other for another 140 years, eventually Hevelius' Latin names gave way to those of Riccioli's (and those names remain in use today). The map measures a full 20.5 x 23.5 inches (52.07 x 59.69cm) and first appeared in 1707 in Johann Baptist Homann's Neuer Atlas, then again in 1742 as plate no. 11 in Doppelmayr's important Atlas Coelestis. Because both were published by Homann's Nuremburg firm, there is literally no discernible difference between the two publications; this fact makes it all but impossible to discern which of the two publications this map originated within. The lunar map on the left, "composed by Hevelius is considered a foundational map in the science of Selenography - or lunar cartography. This map first appeared in Hevelius' 1647 work Selenographia, [a work which] laid the groundwork for most subsequent lunar cartographic studies. Here the moon is presented as it can never be seen from Earth, at greater than 360 degrees and with all visible features given equal weight. In this map Hevelius also establishes the convention of mapping the lunar surface as if illuminated from a single source - in this case morning light. The naming conventions he set forth, which associate lunar features with terrestrial locations such as 'Asia Minor', 'Persia', [and 'Sicilia', were popular until the middle of the 18th century when Riccioli's nomenclature took precedence. "The Riccioli map, on the right, is more properly known as the Riccioli-Grimaldi map, for fellow Jesuit Francesco Grimaldi with whom Riccioli composed the chart. This map first appeared in Riccioli and Grimaldi's 1651 Almagestum Novum. This was a significant lunar chart and offered an entirely new nomenclature which, for the most part, is still in use today. Curiously, though Riccioli, as a devout Jesuit, composed several treatises denouncing Copernican theory, he chose to name one of the Moon's most notable features after the astronomer - perhaps suggesting that he was a secret Copernicus sympathizer? Other well-known lunar features named by Riccioli include the Sea of Tranquility where Apollo 11 landed and where Neil Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the moon's surface. "The upper left and right hand quadrants feature decorative allegorical cartouche work that include images of angelic children looking through a telescope and a representation of the ancient Greek Moon goddess Selene. Additional mini-maps show the moon in various phases of its monthly cycle" (Geographicus Rare Antique Maps). Beneath the maps is an "extensive Latin text discussing Selenography" (ibid). Between the two spheres appears a model depicting the varied phases of the moon; as well, the variant lunar phases appear in the four corners of the map. Johannes Hevelius (1611-1687) was a Polish politician (mayor), brewer, and astronomer. Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr (1677-1750) was a German mathematician and astronomer. Giovanni Battista Riccioli (1598-1671) was an Italian Jesuit priest and astronomer. Johann Homann (1664-1724) was a German geographer and cartographer who in 1702 founded the publishing house which published the 1707 map; Homann's heirs published the 1742 one. CONDITIONS & DETAILS: 20.5 x 23.5 inches (52.07 x 59.69cm). Hand-colored with strong printer impression. Small professionally rendered repair on the rear; very small closed tear at the right foot (not impacting image or text); slight toning and a light, barely visible water stain at the upper right corner. The coloring remains bright and vibrant. Very good condition.

        Poema Tograi. Cum versione Latina Jacobi Golii hactenus inedita edidit M. Anchersen.

      Utrecht, Broedelet, 1707. - Small 4to. (20), 46 pp. With engr. title vignette. Contemp. vellum. "Édition estimée, et dont les exemplaires sont peu communs, parce que (selon Vogt) ils ont presque tous été perdus en mer" (Brunet). The accounts regarding the precise number of copies salvaged from the wreck vary: Schnurrer mentions 5 or 6, Ehrencron-Müller states 50. In any case, the number of copies extant is very small and thus the book is extremely rare. It contains the poem "Lamiyat al-Agam" by al-Hasan Ibn-Ali at-Tugrai (c. 1061-1121) in the Arabic original with a Latin translation and copious commentary by the Danish theologian Matthias Anchersen (1682-1741). "A complaint over the unfortunate circumstances of his times and over his own lot" (cf. GAL). - Some browning and foxing due to paper. The author's personal copy, inscribed to his brother Ansgar on the front flyleaf. Smitskamp 318. Schnurrer 199. Ehrencron-Müller I, 113. Brunet V, 875. Ebert 23020. Cf. GAL I, p. 247 (the 1717 ed.).

Circular stamp of Dickinson College Library on title page (sold at an auction of items withdrawn from the library). The author, Sébastien Le Prestre Vauban (1633-1707), is considered one of the greatest military engineers of all time. In this treatise he used statistical data to support his argument that all taxes should be repealed and replaced by a standard 10% tax on all agricultural output and on all income from trade and manufactures. After the work was condemned by the royal government, he attempted to reclaim all the copies that he had given away. He was fairly successful--WorldCat shows only one copy dated 1707. In Fair Condition: lacking 2 leaves of plates?; lacking front board; back board is detached; lacking much of leather and gilt from spine; lacking leaf preceding title page; title page is lightly soiled; minor loss at a few lower page corners; light soiling of a few corners.

        Strabonis rerum Geographicarum Libri XVII

      Amsterdam: Joannes Wolters, 1707. Folio, with a fine engraved title-page, parallel text in Greek and Latin in double columns; a fine copy in well-preserved contemporary vellum, spine elegantly lettered in ink with in gilt ornament between raised bands, covers ornately gilt with complex central emblematic device. The best edition of Strabo's enormous Geography, his kolossourgia or colossal work as he described it himself. The influential Greek geographer who travelled widely, studied under both Aristotelian and Stoic teachers, and spent some decades in Rome, wrote his work early in the first century. Along with the less-known geographers Aratus and Geminus, Strabo promulgated the idea that the torrid zone of the spherical globe was occupied throughout its length by an ocean which divided his continent from another antipodal one in the southern hemisphere.This edition is based on the critical edition by the great classical scholar Casaubon, here further edited with the addition of extensive notes from the best commentators, and with the addition of text that had been omitted from the sources available to Casaubon. 'The annotations of preceding learned men are arranged with skill in their respective places, by the care and diligence of [this edition's editor] Almeloveen' (Dibdin).The "Geographies" of Strabo were 'by far the most important source for ancient geography, a priceless document of the Augustan age, and a compendium of important material derived from lost authors' (OCD). The work represents the classical world's most significant contribution to the science of geography. The first surviving attempt to collect all geographical knowledge that existed and to compose a general treatise on the subject, it was mainly based on ancient Greek sources. It survived in various manuscripts into the age of printing; however earlier printed editions of the text, including the Aldine edition of 1516, were based on corrupt manuscripts and it was not until 1587 that Casaubon improved the text for this edition, revising it again in 1620. Casaubon's edition of Strabo remained the basis of all subsequent editions until the nineteenth century.For a very full modern analysis of the work see Daniela Dueck, Hugh Lindsay and Sarah Pothecary, Strabo's cultural geography: the making of a kolossourgia (Cambridge, 2005). Dibdin, II 433; Moss, II 621.

      A Cologne: Chez Pierre Marteau, 1707. Fine. Chez Pierre Marteau, A Cologne 1707, In 12 (9x16cm), 535pp., relié. - New edition, after the original 1702 published by the same publisher. Illustrated four folding maps, one of Italy with its various kingdoms and republics. Full contemporary calf. Back tooled raised. Part of title in red morocco. A slight lack in mind. Slot in the upper joint tail. A torn map of Mantua. Friction. Pretty good copy. The war in Italy is an excellent narrative, teeming with picturesque details; it begins in a very romantic way to tell before starting the battles of Piedmont, Turin and Milan, and the political intrigues between Spain, France, the Duke of Savoy and the duchies of Italy. The book draws indeed two records, memoirs and historical genre, and they will find love affairs, many trips and descriptions as a rigorous account of battles and armies in Italy. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Un léger manque en tête. Fente au mors supérieur en queue. Une déchirure à la carte de Mantoue. Frottements. Assez bon exemplaire. La guerre d'Italie constitue une excellente narration, fourmillant de détails pittoresques ; elle débute d'une manière fort romanesque avant d'entreprendre de conter les batailles du Piémont, de Milan et de Turin, et les intrigues politiques entre l'Espagne, la France, le Duc de Savoie et les duchés d' Italie. L'ouvrage puise en effet dans deux registres, les mémoires autobiographiques et le genre historique, et on y trouvera des aventures amoureuses, de nombreux voyages et descriptions comme un compte rendu rigoureux des batailles et des armées présentes en Italie.

He took advantage of the free schooling offered in the county during his day by attending Adams' Grammar School at Newport, afterward continuing his education at Christ Church, Oxford and there meeting the college's dean, Dr Fell. Fell was well known as a disciplinarian, and Brown throughout his life displayed a disdain for restrictions. The legend behind Brown's most recognised work is therefore plausible: it states that Brown got into trouble while at Oxford, and was threatened with expulsion, but that Dr Fell offered to spare Brown if he could translate an epigram from Martial (I, 32, 1): Non amo te, Sabidi, nec possum dicere quare; Hoc tantum possum dicere, non amo te. According to the story, Brown replied without missing a beat: ¿I do not love thee, Dr Fell, The reason why I cannot tell; But this I know, and know full well, I do not love thee, Dr Fell. Fell is said to have stayed Brown's dismissal from the college in admiration of this translation. However the story is of apocryphal provenance, and it is known that Brown left Christ Church without a degree, moving to Kingston upon Thames where he stayed three years as a schoolmaster, and later to London, where he took up residence on Alders gate Street in the Grub Street district. Brown made a modest living from his writing in Latin, French and English, in addition to offering services of translation. He refrained however from ever attaching himself to a patron, and expressed contempt toward those who did so. He pursued a libertine lifestyle, and his satirical works gained him several enemies in their subjects. His best-known works, apart from the quatrain, are probably Amusements Serious and Comical, calculated for the Meridian of London (1700) and Letters from the Dead to the Living (1702), although his writings were quite prolific. Several works of the period whose author is unknown are suspected to be his. Toward the end of his life he began to regret the licentiousness with which he had lived it, and on his deathbed he secured from his publisher (one Sam Briscoe) a promise that any posthumously published works would be censored of "all prophane, undecent passages". The promise was promptly reneged upon. Wikisource has the text of the 1911 Encyclopedia Britannica article Brown, Thomas (English satirist). Many of Brown's works went unpublished until his death, and the publication date of many is in question, as is his stature as a writer. Contemporary opinion was mixed; Jonathan Swift spoke quite highly of Brown's work, and indeed parts of Gulliver's Travels and other of Swift's works may have been significantly influenced by Brown's writings. On the other hand, those whom Brown mercilessly lampooned during his lifetime understandably did nothing to further his good reputation after his demise. The 1911 Encyclopedia Britannica gives this verdict: "He was the author of a great variety of poems, letters, dialogues and lampoons, full of humour and erudition, but coarse and scurrilous. His writings have a certain value for the knowledge they display of low life in London." Presently the best desc [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      S.l.: s.n., 1707. Hardcover. Fair. [2], v-xii, 268 p., 2 folded leaves of plates: tables; 16 cm. Signatures: *6(-1) A-L12 M2 (12mo). Remains of full calf with gilt-tooled title on spine. Modern box covered in maroon cloth with gilt-tooled title on spine and front section. Title vignette (printer's device?). Woodcut head-pieces, tail-pieces, and initials. Circular stamp of Dickinson College Library on title page (sold at an auction of items withdrawn from the library). The author, Sébastien Le Prestre Vauban (1633-1707), is considered one of the greatest military engineers of all time. In this treatise he used statistical data to support his argument that all taxes should be repealed and replaced by a standard 10% tax on all agricultural output and on all income from trade and manufactures. After the work was condemned by the royal government, he attempted to reclaim all the copies that he had given away. He was fairly successful--WorldCat shows only one copy dated 1707. In Fair Condition: lacking 2 leaves of plates?; lacking front board; back board is detached; lacking much of leather and gilt from spine; lacking leaf preceding title page; title page is lightly soiled; minor loss at a few lower page corners; light soiling of a few corners. Box is clean and bright.

        The Works of Mr. Thomas Brown, in Prose and Verse 1707 - 1711 4 Vols

      First Edition Thomas Brown. The Works of Mr. Thomas Brown, in Prose and Verse; Serious, Moral, and Comical. London: Printed for Sam. Briscoe, 1707-1711. Four volumes. Contemporary early 1900s full leather. Gilt titles and Red and Green labels on full gilt spines. All edges yellow. Bookplates. Ink ownership signatures. Very light rubbing and wear to extremities Commensurate with age light age-toning, light scattered foxing. Very good.Thomas Brown (1662 ?" 18 June 1704), also known as Tom Brown, was an English translator and writer of satire.Brown was born in Shropshire; he is identified with the Thomas Brown, son of William and Dorothy Brown, who was recorded christened on 1 January 1663 at Newport. His father, a farmer and tanner, died when Thomas was eight years old.He took advantage of the free schooling offered in the county during his day by attending Adams' Grammar School at Newport, afterward continuing his education at Christ Church, Oxford and there meeting the college's dean, Dr Fell.Fell was well known as a disciplinarian, and Brown throughout his life displayed a disdain for restrictions. The legend behind Brown's most recognised work is therefore plausible: it states that Brown got into trouble while at Oxford, and was threatened with expulsion, but that Dr Fell offered to spare Brown if he could translate an epigram from Martial (I, 32, 1):Non amo te, Sabidi, nec possum dicere quare;Hoc tantum possum dicere, non amo te.According to the story, Brown replied without missing a beat:"I do not love thee, Dr Fell,The reason why I cannot tell;But this I know, and know full well,I do not love thee, Dr Fell.Fell is said to have stayed Brown's dismissal from the college in admiration of this translation. However the story is of apocryphal provenance, and it is known that Brown left Christ Church without a degree, moving to Kingston upon Thames where he stayed three years as a schoolmaster, and later to London, where he took up residence on Alders gate Street in the Grub Street district. Brown made a modest living from his writing in Latin, French and English, in addition to offering services of translation. He refrained however from ever attaching himself to a patron, and expressed contempt toward those who did so. He pursued a libertine lifestyle, and his satirical works gained him several enemies in their subjects.His best-known works, apart from the quatrain, are probably Amusements Serious and Comical, calculated for the Meridian of London (1700) and Letters from the Dead to the Living (1702), although his writings were quite prolific. Several works of the period whose author is unknown are suspected to be his.Toward the end of his life he began to regret the licentiousness with which he had lived it, and on his deathbed he secured from his publisher (one Sam Briscoe) a promise that any posthumously published works would be censored of "all prophane, undecent passages". The promise was promptly reneged upon.Wikisource has the text of the 1911 Encyclopedia Britannica article Brown, Thomas (English satirist).Many of Brown's works went unpublished until his death, and the publication date of many is in question, as is his stature as a writer. Contemporary opinion was mixed; Jonathan Swift spoke quite highly of Brown's work, and indeed parts of Gulliver's Travels and other of Swift's works may have been significantly influenced by Brown's writings.

His writings have a certain value for the knowledge they display of low life in London." Presently the best description of Brown's legacy may be that of Joseph Addison, who accorded him the appellation "T-m Br-wn of facetious Memory".Brown was buried in the grounds of Westminster Abbey.
