        Strabonis rerum Geographicarum Libri XVII

      Joannes Wolters, Amsterdam 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).

      Greece: Nuremberg Homann, Johann Baptist c1716. Copper engraved map of Crete and the islands of the Southern Aegean by Johann Bapt. Homann. Original colour, verso blank. The map is extremely detailed cocerning the settlements of Crete ; it has a long text beside the newly emerged island at Santorini following the volcanic eruption of 25th May 1707 :"In 1707, activity began again, the small when two cones appeared. They were called Aspronisi and Macronesi. Those were united in the course of the following five years by an island which formed between Palea and Small Kameni, much larger and higher then either and was called Nea (New) Kameni .This island, is the youngest island in Greece."[Santorini Living ] Large decorative title cartouche and vignette showing the Gods Posidon, Hermes with an Ottoman Turkish ruler on a pedestal decorated with grapes. Dark impression; bright and clean; cartouche black & white as issued; short tear to lower blank edge backed with archival tape. Johann Baptist Homann (1664 ?" 1724) from 1687 Homann worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house. Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as recommendation for potential customers. In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece "Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt" Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, in business until 1848, known as "Homann Erben", "Homanniani Heredes", "Heritiers de Homann" abroad. Zacharakis: 1641/1079.

The first (1642?"46) and second (1648?"49) wars pitted the supporters of King Charles I against the supporters of the Long Parliament, while the third (1649?"51) saw fighting between supporters of King Charles II and supporters of the Rump Parliament. The war ended with the Parliamentarian victory at the Battle of Worcester on 3 September 1651.Edward Hyde, 1st Earl of Clarendon (18 February 1609 ?" 9 December 1674) was an English statesman, historian, and maternal grandfather of two English, Scottish and Irish monarchs, Queen Mary II and Queen Anne.An Oxford educated lawyer and ultimately Chancellor of the Exchequer, had the tragedy to be a reasonable man in unreasonable times. His career took him into court circles in the 1630s, a period he came to remember as a paradise which enjoyed "the greatest calm and the fullest measure of felicity." He lived to see that idyll ripped apart by civil war and to witness what had seemed a divinely measured and equitable kingdom descend into bloody pandemonium. For Clarendon, England became a monstrous body politic fighting against itself, an insanity of division that culminated in the execution of Charles I in January 1649, when the state figuratively and literally cut off its own head.  By that time, Hyde was in exile. He had helped the queen and the future Charles II escape to France, but chose not to follow them. Instead, in 1646 he retreated to Jersey and began to recover from the chaos that had engulfed him. He spent two years on the island, relatively undisturbed. Steadily, at the request of the king, he created the bulk of his History of the Rebellion, a massive and impassioned exploration of the English civil war that he continued to assemble when he returned to the impoverished court abroad. The History remained incomplete, until Clarendon worked parts of his memoir into the text during his last years spent in political disgrace. Finally, his sons offered the original manuscript to Oxford, and after much editorial correction the 3-part work was published in six volumes, beginning in 1702.Condition:Conditions are Good+/Very Good.  Some wear to edges, bookplate to each Philip Eyre, some to boards/hinges, some glue/color added to lower front hinge and most of back hinge of Vol.I, holding well but visual crack, same to lower front hinge of vol. II, other hinges are very good, small insect hole to first couple pages of vol. IIpages/text blocks are very good for over 305 years old!!!

        Optica oculorum vitia : sub praesidio Georgii Alberti Hambergeri, ... in Academia Jenensi, doctorum oculis ad diem ... Octobr. MDCIVC sujiciet Adamus Behmannus Bernhardi, ...

      . Jena : Literis Gollnerianis, 1707, Kl.-4°, (2), 64 pp., mit 1 Kupfertafel, feiner Pappband im Stil d. Zeit.. Rare - Second Edition of the first monograph on refractive errors ! - - "Physiology in general and physiologic optics in specific made great progress during the 18th century. These advances were at first made not by practicing ophthalmologists but the mathematicians and physicists. This situation is, therefore , similar to that of the 17th century when progress was achieved by Kepler, Scheiner, Kircher, Mariotte, Hooke, Rohault, Deschales, Huygens and others. - - The mathematician Georg Albrecht Hamberger (1662-1716) was the author of a most curios monograph which was printed toward of the end of the 17th century. Modern historian did not know about it and it is not mentioned by A. Hirsch, not by Helmholtz in the second edition of his Physiological Optik. It is difficult to determine how much this book influenced the thought progress of the 18th century. It is only mentioned in the review of the literature by Julius Beer in his first 'Augenheilkunde' of 1792 and Haller quotes it in his 'Elementa physiologiae humani' ...." - - The book is called: Optica oculorum vitia sub praesidio Geogrii Alberti Hambergeri, .... - - This is the first monograph on refractive errors, - the root so to speak from which 170 years later the classical book by Donders evolved; the monograph is for its time extraordinarily clear, strictly mathematical and physical, written in an entirely different spirit from the scholastic descriptions of the fourth book by Plempius "Opthalmographia" (1632) and also far superior to the corresponding remarks in Boerhaave's lectures on ophtahlmology (1708, printed in 1746 to 1771). These two publications are usually regarded as the beginning of physiologic optics. .... - - (Also) Modern ocular hygiene was created by Professor Hamberger in Jena in 1696 ... - - Only the reform of ophthalmology during the middle of the 19th century which was based on the ophthalmoscope and the correct recognition of refraction changed the situation." Hirschberg/Blodi IV, pp.284-291 - - "Es ist dies die erste Sonderschrift über die Fehler der Einstellung des Auges ... für die damalige Zeit außerordentlich klar, streng mathematisch-physikalisch ... geschrieben ... Die Hygiene des Auges ... ist in den zahllosen Schriften über diesen Gegenstand, die um die Wende des 18. zum 19. Jahrhundert ... erschienen sind, nur wenig verbessert und erweitert worden " Hirschberg

      Te Leyden By Pieter Vandera Aa. 1707 - FIRST EDITION. Slender 8vo, pp. 37 [38 - 42 Index], folding engraved map, 2 folding engraved plates, engraved vignette on title-page, recently rebound in half calf, spine blocked in gilt, marbled boards. A very good copy. The English civil servant William Method (1590 - 1653) was born in Norfolk; he acquired fluency in several foreign languages, including Latin, Dutch, French, and Persian. He began service for the East India Company in 1616, and this account of his experiences there was one of several reports he made to his employers. ODNB notes, "Apart from forthright letters and reports to the company, partly published, he composed a 'Relation of Golconda', a brilliant description of that part of India, which appeared in the 1626 edition of Samuel Purchas's Purchas his Pilgrimage. It included brief descriptions of the kingdoms of Arakan, Pegu, and Tenasserim, based on trade information, not personal observation." This would appear to be the first translation into Dutch of the material published in 1625. Cordier Indosinica, 415. OCLC locates several copies in continental libraries, and UC Berkeley, Johns Hopkins, and the John Carter Brown Library in the USA; Copac adds BL. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Engraved title page, with the coat of arms of Virginia, precedes the printed title page. Translated from the English ("The history and present state of Virginia, in four parts," first published in 1705). Contemporary full calf, the spine, in six compartments, very richly gilt with a red morocco label lettered in gilt. A very handsome, well-preserved copy Sabin 5116. Howe B-410. OCLC no. 5828565. First French Edition (with a new title page) of the first history of the Virginia colony "penned by a native and the best contemporary account of its aboriginal tribes and the life of its early settlers." (Howes) Sabin calls Beverley the "best authority," affording the "most vivid, comprehensive, instructive, and entertaining picture of Virginia at the date of his writing" and quotes Pinkerton: "A work of considerable merit." Beverley's History, one of the most outspoken books of Americanism before the War of Independence, satirized the ‘Rapacious and Arbitrary’ English governors and objected to the ‘heavy Impositions’ put upon the American colonies by the English, while celebrating Virginia's history and laws, featuring stories of early Virginia—including the Lost Colony and Pocahontas saving Captain John Smith—which became standard features of American history. Even so, large parts of the History derived from existing sources, though Beverley often gave even the borrowed material his own interpretation. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Together with the Author's Voyage from Amapalla on the west-coast of Mexico, to East India. his arrival at Amboyna: with a large description of that and other Spice Islands; as also of Batavia, the Cape of Good Hope, &c

      W. Botham, for James Knapton, London 1707 - [24],300,[18]pp. Ten engraved plates and five folding engraved maps and charts (including frontispiece). Contemporary owner's inscription to front pastedown, faded 18th century library stamp to front free endpaper, which has a four-inch vertical tear. Contemporary paneled calf, spine gilt, leather label, expertly rebacked with original spine laid down. First edition of this important contemporary account of an early circumnavigation of the globe. "It was Funnell, not Dampier, who really circumnavigated the globe on this voyage, as Dampier proceeded only as far as the South Seas. The purpose of the expedition was to harass the Spaniards and take plunder from vessels and towns in South America. Its failure was due to the differences that arose between them. Funnell arrived in England before Dampier and seized the opportunity to compose a relation of his voyage; a task for which he was poorly qualified. His narrative contained much that was disapproved of by Dampier, who immediately after published a "Vindication" of his voyage, pointing out the misrepresentations of Funnell" (Hill). Sometimes considered a fourth volume of Dampier's account, though there is no indication it was meant as such at the time of publication. Hill 664; Sabin 26213.

        Græcæ grammatices rudimenta. In usum Scholæ Regiæ Westmonasteriensis.

      William Redmayne 1707 - woodcut arms of the school on title-page, small hole in first leaf of text affecting a few letters, ink blots on p. 86, rust hole in S2 and paper flaw in U1 affecting a few letters, front fly-leaf loose, that at the rear missing, pp. [i], 308, [2, ads], 8vo, contemporary calf, blind roll tooled borders on sides with corner ornaments, a little rubbed, spine defective at head, armorial book-plate inside front cover (see below), good The ninth but not the last edition of this Westminster School Greek grammar, attributed to the headmaster Richard Busby (1606-1695), who compiled his grammars ‘with the assistance of his ushers’ (ODNB). It was first published at Cambridge in 1647 and first printed by a Redmayne in 1663. This is a rather charming copy, whose first owner, William Powell, seems to have been an assiduous student with a fondness for writing his name in Greek characters. The book was cherished in the Powell family, if the engraved armorial bookplate of W.T.R. Powell (1815-1878), M.P. for Cardiganshire, is anything to go by. Westminster, Christ Church and Parliament was the traditional family route. (ESTC T129127)

"It was Funnell, not Dampier, who really circumnavigated the globe on this voyage, as Dampier proceeded only as far as the South Seas. The purpose of the expedition was to harass the Spaniards and take plunder from vessels and towns in South America. Its failure was due to the differences that arose between them. Funnell arrived in England before Dampier and seized the opportunity to compose a relation of his voyage; a task for which he was poorly qualified. His narrative contained much that was disapproved of by Dampier, who immediately after published a VINDICATION of his voyage, pointing out the misrepresentations of Funnell" -Hill. Sometimes considered a fourth volume of Dampier's account, though there is no indication it was meant as such at the time of publication. HILL 664. SABIN 26213.
