John Phelipps, the second son of Edward Phelipps of Montacute and Vicar of Yeovil 1756-1766. The majority of his extensive library of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century theology, literature and scientific works, as with this volume, were adorned with Phelipps' gilt book-stamp. Rev. John Norris, Anglican clergyman and Cambridge platonist philosopher (1657-1712). Correspondent of Henry More and acquaintance of John Locke, whose recommendation brought Norris the living of Bemerton, Wilts. in 1692. The publication of his Christian Blessedness (London, 1690), a selection of short theological essays, also featured a separate 44p section entitled 'Reflections upon a late Essay concerning human understanding'; the first extended critique of Locke's Humane Understanding (London, 1690) appearing in print a mere six months after its subject. Norris' Discourses were frequently published, with mixed editions variously appearing with collective title pages (as with Vols I &II, and III&IV here), in each case Reflections is appended to the end of Vol I, with separate pagination.

Garrison-Morton 2731; Norman 1273; Wellcome III, p.441. -- First edition. The work that "laid the foundation for a true understanding of cardiac pathology" (Garrison-Morton). In it he gives the first description of valvular vegetation, and an historical survey of the literature and classification of cardiac diseases. ---- <br><br> II. Heirs of Hippocrates 689; Osler 3149; Waller 5543; Wellcome III, p. 441; Norman 1274. FIRST EDITION OF ONE OF THE EARLIEST WORKS ON ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH. As papal physician for 30 years, Lancisi was deeply interested in public health and epidemiology, and his research into contagious diseases was well in advance of his time. &#39;In the present work, the first on municipal hygiene, he examined what he considered to be the health-affecting aspects of the Roman environment, particularly her water supply and the insalubrious Pontine marshes&#39; (Norman). A few years later Lancisi published a study exclusively devoted to the disease-causing effects of the marshes (De noxiis paludum effluviis libri duo, 1717), in which he reported on his research into malaria, epidemic in Rome, attributing the disease &#39;by a brilliant intuition&#39; (DSB) to the proliferation of mosquitoes in the swamps, and urging that they be drained, unfortunately without success. The second part of the present work describes the devastating influenza epidemic that originated in Italy in 1709 and swept through most of Europe. Before his death Lancisi donated his personal medical library of over 20,000 volumes to the Hospital of Santo Spirito in Rome for the education of its physicians and surgeons. The Lancisi library, which opened in 1716, remains one of the more important collections for the study of the history of medicine. 1707, 1711, 1715.

      Richard Chiswell. Map. Engraving with hand-coloring. Image measures 12.5 x 22.5". This early town plan of London, published circa 1707, shows the city as laid out around the Thames River, which snakes along the lower half of the map. The city and its surrounding boroughs extend out from the river&#39;s shores, with fine engraving of streets and buildings offering detailed insight into the city&#39;s development at the beginning of the 18th century. Prominent roads and locales are labeled, particularly along the river, where the names of various docks mix with pictorial ships. The title runs along the top of the map, below which are two decorative cartouches, the left bearing London&#39;s coat of arms and the right listing the map&#39;s publishing information. Along the bottom are a scale and compass rose. Overall wear, particularly at the original folds. Two-inch tear into image at upper right with early repair. Staining to left border and some offsetting along the bottom. Narrow margins. Richard Chiswell (1639--1711) was a British publisher and map seller who focused on his hometown of London. He notably produced maps for the Royal Society of London, a learned society founded during his lifetime that sought to promote scientific discussion in British society. This map speaks to the period in which it was published as a time of active and exciting investigation.

        Hoedemaekers Rekening Boeck.

      [Antwerp, 1707-1776. - An eighteenth-century account book of the guild of hatmakers in the city of Antwerp, covering nearly 70 years. The Antwerp hatmakers were an important craft organization with a well-regulated structure. Their accounts were overseen by aldermen, each serving for several years, who recorded income (usually in the the form of entry fines for new members) and expenditure (usually payment for the guilds officials). One of the major expenditures was the payment of the 'proefmeesters' who exercised quality control by examining the products of prospective entrants before admitting them to membership.The accounts provide a detailed record of the names of entrants to the guild and of guild officials. They also provide much incidental detail of the position of the craft within the regional economy, with frequent expenditures recording contact with the neighbouring towns of Brussels, Mechelen and Bruges. Manuscript, small folio (310 × 200 mm), 62 leaves bearing text (usually on both sides), numerous blanks at rear. Text in Dutch throughout, usually legible. Original vellum wallet binding with overlapping flap, title in bold calligraphic manuscript to upper cover. Quite soiled, minor loss to velum at spine and foredege, wanting ties, but essentially sound.

Two library file cards laid in explain that this is one of two manuscript copies found in the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel papers in London housed in the Lambeth Palace Library. At some time in the 20th Century it was restored to its present form by Mr. C.E. Gray (bookbinder and restorer) and presented to the Philadelphia Divinity School (PDS) by Geoffrey Bill Esq., librarian of the Lambeth Palace Library. The PDS was merged on June 6, 1974 with that at Harvard, the Episcopal Theological School (ETS), Cambridge, Massachusetts. The campus and buildings in West Philadelphia were sold to the University of Pennsylvania and their contents dispersed. The act called for dividing the colony into parishes, the Book of Common Prayer was to be made official for the colony and all places of public worship of the Church of England would be maintained by the public and "deemed & established churches". With strong support by Sir Nathaniel Johnson, in 1704 Governor of the Carolinas, the Assembly passed this Act in so doing established the Church of England as official. Religious nonconformists, persons of other faiths, did not wish to support an English church and clergyman at public expense. Therefore the law met with great opposition in the colony and when the Assembly sought to repeal it, Johnson dissolved that body. His action caused further resentment throughout the colonies and was well remembered 70 years later. In May 1776, Thomas Jefferson in drafting a Constitution for the State of Virginia, included this clause: "All persons shall have full and free liberty of religious opinion; nor shall any be compelled to frequent or maintain any religious institution." The Jefferson-Mason Constitution for Virginia also contained a list of grievances against "George Guelph" (George III's family name) and served as a model for both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution enacted in Philadelphia the following month. Of incredible historic interest in the development of freedom of religion in America, it is the sort of manuscript seldom found outside an institutional collection.

        The History of Tom Jones, A Foundling

      Henry Fielding (1707-1754) was an English novelist and dramatist. Here is a lovely copy of the first edition, second printing of this seminal English novel. In the Harvard Classics volumes Gordon Gerould summarizes 'Tom Jones' thus: "As to the stupendous achievement of the novel there can be no question. Beyond all cavil it is supremely great. By the very might of its revelation of human nature it disarms criticism and tempts to the use of the superlative... The merit of it consists in the performance of what Fielding in his prefatory chapter promised to give the reader: 'The provision then which we have here made is no other than HUMAN NATURE. In like manner, the excellence of the mental entertainment consists less in the subject than in the author?s skill in well dressing it up.' In other words, 'Tom Jones' is great because it pictures real men and women, and because its craftsmanship is marvelous". The second printing was issued in April 1749, two months after the first printing.  Cross describes it thus: "Immediate revision was rendered imperative on account of the numerous errors that crept into the text owing to the haste with which the novel had been at last put through the press...  type and paper are the same and the paging is kept uniform with the edition having the errata... The table of contents is re-spaced so as to extend into the page formerly given to the errata... scores of individual pages differ either in the number of lines or in the last words and phrases".  The copy offered here is identified as a second printing by the following specific bibliographic points. Volume I lacks the errata slip, and the table of contents expands to fill the previously unnumbered page with page xliii. The errata listed in the first printing are corrected.  The first printing cancels are not present at II(N12), III(H8, H9,H10, M3 & Q11), and V(N8).  Vols II and IV have the second printing free endpapers.   This copy is in very good plus condition.  The original calf boards have been retained with professional rebacking, which has reused the original red leather title panels. Each volume has the bookplate of Douglas Maxwell Moffat to the front pastedown. Moffat (1881-1956) was the U.S. Ambassador to Australia, appointed by President Eisenhower in February 1956, just a few months before his death.  There are a few pencil notations to the pastedowns.  Otherwise the contents are exceptionally nice - clean and undamaged with no foxing. A previous bookseller has pasted an inaccurate description to the rear pastedown of volume one.  Additional images are available on request.

        A Voyage Round the World

      London,: James Knapton,, 1707.. Octavo, five folding maps & 10 plates; mild browning of the title-page and dedication, edges a little spotted; very good in neat later polished calf with gilt bands and red morocco label, joints rubbed, bookplate. A nice copy of the work which almost ruined Dampier's already shaky reputation, Funnell's highly critical account of the 1703-4 South Seas voyage of the St. George. It was during this voyage that Alexander Selkirk, the prototype of Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, was marooned on Juan Fernandez.The cruise of the St. George and the Cinque Ports (Captain Stradling) was a South Seas voyage designed to harass the Spanish, but it failed because of conflict on board the vessels, including a falling-out between the mate Funnell and Dampier. When the former returned to England first, he seized the opportunity to rush into print with this highly unflattering account of his former captain. Dampier, in turn, would publish a vindication of his conduct, and would have been infuriated when the publisher Knapton later included this highly critical work in the collected edition of Dampier in 1729.Funnell joined Dampier's third privateering expedition as mate of the St. George which sailed for the Canary Islands, Brazil and the South Seas in April 1703. The St. George was joined by the Cinque Ports and both ships started looting the South American Coast from the Juan Fernandez Islands in January 1704. They experienced mixed success and the crews grew rebellious in the face of dwindling food supplies. Funnell's account is highly critical of Dampier, and charges him with being routinely drunk, using foul and abusive language, oppressing his crew, and gross cowardice. The antagonism between Funnell and Dampier was exacerbated when they took the Spanish galleon Asuncion as a prize. With limited time available, Dampier ordered the food stores moved to the St. George and forbade Funnell to search the Asuncion for hidden gold. Ultimately both the St. George and Cinque Ports were declared unseaworthy and abandoned in late 1704. The expedition split, with Funnell and other disgruntled sailors taking a small Spanish prize to Amboina in the Dutch East Indies.Davidson, 'A Book Collector's Notes', p. 33; Hill, 664; Sabin, 26213.

With his various Adventures, Engagements, &c. And a particular and exact Description of several Islands in the Atlantick Ocean, the Brazilian Coast, the Passage round Cape Horn, and the Coasts of Chili, Peru, and Mexico. Together with the Author&#39;s Voyage from Amapalla On the West-Coast of Mexico, To East-India. His passing by Three Unknown Islands, and thro&#39; a New-discover&#39;d Streight near the Coast of New Guinea; His Arrival at Amboyna: With a large Description of that and other Spice Islands; as also of Batavia, the Cape of Good Hope, &c. With divers Maps, Draughts, Figures of Plants and Animals. Octavo (190 × 118 mm). Contemporary panelled calf, rebacked, red morocco label, raised bands with broken line roll, gilt devices to the compartments. Folding bihemispheric world map as frontispiece and 4 other folding maps, and 10 engraved plates. A little rubbed, corners bumped, new endpapers, overall browned and with some marginal finger-soiling, professional repair to small slip missing from the fore-edge of a plate, similar repair to paper flaw in one leaf, modern collector&#39;s bookplate to both pastedowns, but a very good copy. First edition of a controversial account by the Mate serving on board the St George during William Dampier&#39;s privately-funded circumnavigation of 1703&#150;4. "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 differences that arose between the two men. 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 objectionable to Dampier, who immediately afterwards published a &#39;Vindication&#39; of his voyage, pointing out Funnell&#39;s misrepresentations" (Hill). Funnell&#39;s fellow crew-member, Midshipman John Welbe, countered with An &#39;Answer&#39;, accusing Dampier of barbarous treatment of his crew. As Beaglehole wrote of Dampier: "No man was better fitted to navigate a ship [but] he was certainly not a great captain. The voyage was a fruitless one; they took a few small prizes and split into malcontent parties who made off to the East Indies in captured ships". Of 183 men that embarked on the expedition, 18 returned. Funnell wrote that "disagreements and mismanagement [caused] us to fail our chief designs". Away from controversy, Funnell&#39;s narrative gives excellent descriptions of the west coast of the Americas, the Dutch East Indies and detailed natural history plates much like those in Dampier&#39;s published voyages; in fact, as Dampier published no proper account of the voyage, "in spite of Dampier&#39;s protests" Knapton used Funnell&#39;s account as volume IV in his editions of Dampier&#39;s voyages 1697&#150;1707 and 1729. An uncommon and important account.

Edward Lhuyd (1660-1707), born near Oswestry, was a Welsh scholar at Jesus College, Oxford, and Curator of the Ashmolean Museum. From 1695 to 1701 he travelled exhaustively through the Celtic countries; this volume (only v. I was published) is the result. In many ways Lhuyd anticipated the methods of modern comparative linguistics. His book is also a fascinating source of material on late Cornish, still spoken when Lhuyd made his journey, and of course on the other languages studied. A fine example of this seminal work.

Estienne, 1707. First edition and a book of considerable rarity. By 1695, Papin had left his teaching position at Marburg and was given a place in the court of the Landgrave of Hesse in Kassel. Here he continued to devise a number of pumps and to work on steam pressure. "In 1705, Papin heard from Leibniz of Savery&#39;s engine, and received from him a sketch of it. In 1707 Papin published [in the present work] details of a new engine, a modified Savery engine -- not a modified Huygens&#39; engine, as his previous one was...In 1707 Papin used his steam engine (originally conceived as a pumping engine) to drive a model boat on the river Fulda at Cassel; the pumping engine forcing up water to turn a water-wheel, which drove the paddles."-Wolf, A History of Science, Technology, and Philosophy, I, p. 550. Apart from the inevitable browning, a fine copy. In our copy there is a cancel label pasted to the title below "Feu." which corrects the reading to: "Mise en lumiere par mr. D. Papin" with a further cancel label pasted over the "mr." &#10087; D.S.B., X, pp. 292-93. En Français dans le Texte 135-"C&#39;est en 1698 que Papin faisait ses expériences, mais il n&#39;en publia les résultats qu&#39;en 1707, et déjà Savery et Newcomen avaient établi leur première machine à vapeur. Papin convient dans son ouvrage que les Anglais étaient arrivés aux mêmes résultats par les mêmes moyens. Toutefois ses communications insérées notamemment dans les Acta eruditorum de Leipzig, lui assurent une priorité incontestable." .

      Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte de Buffon (1707-1788) was a French naturalist, mathematician, biologist, cosmologist and author. Buffon's views and work influenced the next two generations of naturalists during a critical period in the development of human knowledge and conception of the natural world.  Charles Darwin, in a forward to his Origin of Species, stated that "the first author who in modern times has treated it in a scientific spirit was Buffon."  It should be remarked that, like many sages before and after him, Buffon was not universally prescient.  He argued that the Americas were lacking in large and powerful creatures, and that even the people were less virile than their European counterparts. An affronted Thomas Jefferson arranged to have the carcass of a bull moose sent to Paris for Buffon as proof of the virility of New World quadrupeds (and bipeds as well).  Here is a 10 volume matched set of Buffon's ambitiously comprehensive discourse on natural science, with varying publication dates (4 vols published in 1807, 2 published in 1810, 2 published in 1811, and 2 published in 1812).  All are bound in the original half leather over marbled boards with leather corners.  The set is in very good condition overall considering the age and original bindings.  The bindings all show shelf wear, but all of the boards remain firmly attached with square and tight bindings.  All of the contents are clean, tight, and complete, including the many hand-colored plates.

        Histoire de la Virginie

      Amsterdam: Chez Thomas Lombrail, 1707. Full Calf. Near Fine. 12mo; [4], 432, [16]pp, plus 14 finely executed plates (based on the engravings from the first part of Theodor De Bry&#39;s Grand Voyages) and a folding table. 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&#39;s History, one of the most outspoken books of Americanism before the War of Independence, satirized the &#145;Rapacious and Arbitrary&#146; English governors and objected to the &#145;heavy Impositions&#146; put upon the American colonies by the English, while celebrating Virginia&#39;s history and laws, featuring stories of early Virginia&#151;including the Lost Colony and Pocahontas saving Captain John Smith&#151;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.
