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 In this treatise he used statistical data to support his argument that all taxes should be repealed and replaced by a standard 10% tax on all agricultural output and on all income from trade and manufactures.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.

        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.

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

      Briscoe Sam, London 1707 - First Edition Thomas Brown. The Works of Mr. Thomas Brown, in Prose and Verse 1707 - 1711 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. 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]

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. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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. 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 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.

        Collectio nova patrum et scriptorum Graecorum, Eusebii Caesariensis, Athanasii, & Cosmae Aegyptii

      Paris: Cl. Rigaud, 1707. Two volumes, large folio; double-column text and translation printed in Greek and Roman letter; four full-page engravings and two woodcuts in the text illustrating the Cosmas section; original French mottled calf, spines panelled in gilt between raised bands, red leather labels; covers rubbed. Collected edition of the Patristic geographers. A rare and important travel book, not much noticed in the literature. The account of his sixth century travels by Cosmas Indicopleustes appears here in print for the first time, accompanied by what have been described as - in all probability - the earliest Christian maps.The great palaeographer Montfaucon's eighteenth-century collection of Greek patristic (early Christian) writings prints for the first time newly discovered works by Athanasius and Eusebius of Caesarea, but is of most interest now for publishing for the first time the Topographia Christiana of the sixth-century traveller Cosmas - known as Indicopleustes, or the Indian Voyager - from the tenth-century manuscript in the Vatican, illustrated with four full-page engravings and several woodcuts in the text.A merchant from Alexandria, around the year 530 Cosmas sailed in the Red Sea and visited Ethiopia. 'He definitely visited Adulis (= Zula), where he found an inscribed marble seat, and described the Persian Gulf, Socotra, India and Ceylon, although there is no proof that he travelled that far. In fact he is quite honest about the places he visited and it can be assumed unlikely that he sailed far beyond the coasts of the Red Sea and South Arabia. His description of Ethiopia documents some of the large expeditions sent by the Kings of Aksum to the coast of Sasu, thought to be southern Somalia.'In about 548 Cosmas became a monk and retired to Sinai where he wrote his Topographia Christiana. It is for this, probably the first work of Christian geography and containing the first Christian maps, that he is best known. He regarded the Earth as a rectangular plane covered by the vaulted roof of the firmament, with heaven above. He recognized Ceylon as an entrepot in the trade between India and the Far East, and was aware that to reach China (he calls it 'Tzinitza') one had to sail east then turn north...' (Howgego, I, C200).Cosmas was a flat-earther, who scoffed at the idea of an antipodes on the basis that people there would have to hang on upside down: the illustration reproduced by Montfaucon from the early mansucript that he examined shows how absurd Cosmas found the idea of a globe with antipodeans thus disadvantaged. The chief object of his "Topography" was 'to denounce the false and heathen doctrine of the rotundity of the earth, and to vindicate the scriptural account of the world. According to Cosmas our terrestrial home is a tabernacle or tent: the earth is a rectangular plane, covered by the vaulted roof of the firmament, above which lies heaven. In the centre of the plane is the inhabited earth, surrounded by ocean, beyond which lies the paradise of Adam. The sun revolves round a conical mountain to the north - round the summit in summer, round the base in winter, which accounts for the difference in the length of the day.'The best known and most celebrated part of the "Topography" is the description, in the ninth book, of Ceylon and of the plants and animals of India... The work also contains in all probability the oldest Christian maps, either made by Cosmas himself or prepared under his direction... He attacked the theory that the earth was a sphere, both on the grounds of its pagan origin and common sense, and he was particularly anxious to discredit the existence of the Antipodes. How can rain fall up in the southern hemisphere? How could people hang upside down by their toes? Beazley notes that 'he carried the popular tradition to the furthest extreme. His vituperation against Greek science is a sign of its continuing vitality in Alexandria on the eve of the Arab invasion...' (Evelyn Edson, Mapping Time and Space: How Medieval Mapmakers Viewed Their World, The British Library, 1997, pp. 145-148).There are evidently two issues of the book, dated 1706 or 1707 but otherwise without difference.

        La guerre d'Italie, ou memoires du Comte D ***. Contenant quantité de choses particulières qui se sont passées dans les cours d'Allemagne, de France, d'Espagne, de Savoïe & d'Italie

      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 period 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.

The lame devil is one of the rarest original eighteenth. We know that the first edition was exhausted in a few days and had to move quickly to a second printing; legend has it that two lords fought to the sword before the bookseller's shop Barbin to determine who would have the final copy of the second draft. It is this work which made Lesage a distinguished writer and immediately famous. The author had borrowed the frame Guevarra, the devil carrying a deadly rooftop and watching the scenes in the home.

        Strabonis rerum Geographicarum Libri XVII

      Amsterdam: Joannes Wolters, 1707. Two volumes, folio, with a fine engraved title-page, parallel text in Greek and Latin in double columns; some wear affects joints of the first volume (yet binding still firm); a very good copy in contemporary full calf with raised bands and gilt labels. The best edition of the text. 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).
