Leguat, Francis (c1637-1735)
London: R Bonwicke, W Freeman, Tim Goodwin, et al, 1708. [8]+xv+248+[24] pages with title in red and black, frontispiece, 4 folding maps, 27 engraved figures (many folding) and index. Octavo (8 1/4" x 5"") bound in quarter leather with raised spine bands and black label in gilt over marbled boards. First English edition.Francois Leguat was a French Huguenot originating from the Province of Bresse, now part of the department of Ain, who fled to Holland in 1689 after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685. Marquis Henri du Quesne had published a book giving a glowing description of the island of Réunion. and, with the cooperation of the Dutch East India Company, was planning to establish a colony of French Protestant refugees on the island. Two ships were charted for the purpose and many refugees, including Leguat, were eager to become colonists, but when du Quesne learnt that France had sent a squadron of ships to the island, he abandoned this plan as he wanted to avoid any confrontation with the French. Instead he fitted out a small frigate, L'Hirondelle and instructed the captain, Anthony Valleau, to reconnoitre the Mascarene islands, and to take possession of whatever island was found unoccupied and suitable for colonisation. It appears that the colonists were not informed of this change of plan. On 10 July 1690 Leguat and nine male volunteers boarded L'Hirondelle in Amsterdam, intending to start a new life on the island of Réunion, which they believed had been abandoned by the French. Instead, on 16 May 1691, Leguat and seven companions were marooned on the uninha … [Click Below for Full Description]

COEHOORN, Menno van.
Neuer Vestungs-Bau, ...Wesel, Jacobus von Wesel (colophon: printed by the heirs of Kattepoel), 1708. With 15 engraved plates (all but 2 folding). With a second copy of the plate with about 165 figures loosely inserted, coloured by an early hand. Contemporary vellum. [32], 203, [1] pp. plus plates. Rare first German edition, of one of the greatest classics of the art of fortification, first published in Dutch in 1685 and here based on the 1706 first French edition and using the same plates as Van Wesel's 1706 reprint of the first French edition. While the Dutch had established themselves as the greatest masters of fortification during the Eighty Years' War for Dutch independence from Spain, the art did not stand still after peace came temporarily in 1648. Although a few Dutch engineers spoke out for reform, the Frenchman Sébastien Le Prestre de Vauban (1633-1707) was to dominate the field with his fortifications, defensive and offensive strategies. The Frisian artillery officer and military engineer Menno van Coehoorn (1641-1704), his only major rival, took a very different approach, more practical than theoretical, with his great fortification manual in 1685. He deployed troops more actively in the defence of fortifications and tailored his designs and strategies to the particular features of the site. This made them especially important for fortifications and siege warfare in the marshy flat lands of the Low Countries, circumstances less familiar to Vauban.With the letterpress leaves somewhat browned, occasional minor foxing in the plates and a small hole or tear in the ma … [Click Below for Full Description]

HYDE, Edward (Lord Cornbury), Richard Ingoldesby, Robert Hunter, (William Bradford)
New Jersey, 1708. Folio. Measuring 8.25" x 13". Unbound folio gathering of 18 leaves, with two additional leaves laid in: a total of 40 pages, of which 38 are written in holograph. The first and last leaves of the gathering are detached, toned and frayed at the edges, with a few scattered small holes and chips, else about very good, with toning and fraying to the edges of the next one or two outer leaves. A very early ledger from the Province of New Jersey, consisting of financial records kept under the Colony's first three Governors (1708-13), together with manuscript drafts of two 1733 legislative "acts" presumably of the General Assembly of the Province of New Jersey: (1.) to "better enable Creditors to recover their just Debt from Debtors who abscond themselves," and (2.) "for the relief & discharge of poor distressed Prisoners for Debt." The financial records comprise the first half of the ledger: [pp. 1-18, 4 (laid-in)]. Most entries are descriptions of payments issued by the Governor to his Receiver-General (Treasurer). The entries are numbered and written in various secretarial hands in accordance with the convention of the day. Those issued by Lord Cornbury date from the end of his seven-year term as Governor (November, 1708). Described by his political enemies as "a degenerate and pervert" and "quite possibly the worst governor in the history of the empire," Cornbury was accused of accepting bribes, embezzlement of defense funds, and fiscal mismanagement. In 1708 he was removed from office, arrested for unpaid debts, and sent to jail for 17 months. The next sectio … [Click Below for Full Description]

Contemporary uniform half calf, richly gold-tooled spines (10 vols.), the 1767 in slightly different half calf, apparently made to match the earlier ones. Attractive set of 11 works of the famous Dutch poet, artist and engraver Jan Luyken (1649-1712). Luyken, like Saint Augustine, had led a rather frivolous life when young, which he said helped him to vividly depict the dangers and temptations of a worldly life. Most of the works included are emblem books, with engravings accompanied by a Dutch motto, a poem, and several relevant Biblical passages for further contemplation. The set contains:1). Beschouwing der wereld... Amsterdam, 1708.2). De zedelyke en stichtelyke gezangen... Amsterdam, 1709.3). De onwaardige wereld... Amsterdam, 1710.4). De bykorf des gemoeds, honing zaamelende uit allerly bloemen... Amsterdam, 1711. 5). Het leerzaam huisraad... Amsterdam, 1711.6). Des menschen begin, midden en einde... Amsterdam, 1712. 7).

First edition, with astonishingly beautiful illustrations of citrus fruits, flowers, exotic plants, landscapes, cities, villages, palaces, gardens and garden art (including sundials and an obelisk with Egyptian hieroglyphs), as well as garden, building and city plans, labyrinths, etc. Most of the plates show a large illustration of a fruit (or less often a flower) above a small view of the garden, village, city or region where it is found, resulting in frequently surreal effects reminiscent of Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach. Many include people engaged in various activities, and some of the botanical illustrations also include insects, spiders, birds, etc., including pests that damage the fruits: "delightful views of the gardens and palaces of Germany, Austria and Italy" (Blunt); "engraving as fine as this is not really improved by colour" (Raphael); "the vignettes and tailp … [Click Below for Full Description]

Contemporary mottled calf, red edges. [24], 485, [4], [3 blank] pp. First edition of the second French translation of a history of the conquest of Spain by the Moors, detailing events from 712 to 761 CE, a description of Spain during the same period, and a biography of Almanzor (ca. 938-1002), the Islamic ruler of the Iberian Peninsula at that time. "This was a false chronicle, halfway between a history and a novel of chivalry, supposedly translated from an Arabic manuscript by a (fictitious) historian called Tarif Abentarique that Luna had found in El Escorial" (García-Arenal & Mediano). In the account, first published in 1592, the Iberian Peninsula is saved by the Arab newcomers from a state of evil and corruption under the Visigoth rulers. Luna's account is a defence of Arab culture in Spain, independently of the religion of Islam and particularly defending the Arabic language. "His writings attempt to reimagine the origins and history of Christianity in the Peninsula such that its inhabitants of Arab origin may be seen as "natural" or "native" ...; therefore they cannot be expelled as alien invaders ..., but rather, and above all, may aspire to honors and privileges" (García-Arenal & Mediano).Miguel de Luna (ca. 1550-1615) was a Spanish physician of Arabic descent, who also publi … [Click Below for Full Description]

With interesting engraved frontispiece by Joseph Montalegre, title-page printed in red and black with engraved vignette, engraved plate and 5 engraved headpieces (incl. repeats). Contemporary calf, gold-tooled spines. [36], 1020; [1], [1 blank], 1108; [1], [1 blank], 848, [100] pp. The "beste Ausgabe" (Hirsch) of the works of Michael Ettmüller (1644-1683), a doctor of philosophy and medicine, and a celebrated professor at the University of Leipzig. According to some, his death was caused by a chemical experiment. His collected works were published before several times, but these received a lot of negative criticism. His son, Ernst Michael Ettmüller, took it upon himself to edit them for the present edition. It includes works on medicine, chemistry, pharmacy, surgery, etc.Ettmüller appears to be often neglected today, but was a much respected author until the 18th century. Thorndike spends 10 pages discussing his chemical manual, first published in 1684 by a former student as Chimia rationalis ac experimentalis and emphasizes his importance.Browned throughout, binding rubbed with some damage to the foot of the spine of volume 2 and the head of volume 3, but generally in good condition. Partington II, p. 298, no. VI; Ferguson, Bib. chem. I, p. 251; cf. Thorndike VIII, p. 153-163; for the author: Hirsch II, pp. 310-311.

Avec la description de l'Espagne, ..., la vie du grand Almansor par Ali Abensufian, et quelques lettres & pieces originales.Paris, Widow of François Muguet, 1708. 12mo. Contemporary mottled calf, with richly gold-tooled spine. [24], 485, 4, [3 blank] pp. First edition of the second French translation of a history of the conquest of Spain by the Moors, detailing events from 712 to 761 A.D., a description of Spain during the same period, and a biography of Almanzor (ca. 938-1002), the Islamic ruler of the Iberian Peninsula at that time. It was first published in Spanish in 1592, and according to the title-page the history itself is translated from an original 8th-century Arabic chronicle by "Abdulcacim Tarif Abentarique", but now generally believed to have been written directly in Spanish by the "translator", Miguel de Luna (ca. 1550-1619). The same seems to be the case for the biography of Almanzor by "Ali Abensufian". The complete volume was translated into French for the present edition by Guy Alexis Lobineau (1666-1727). With owner's inscription on title-page. Some very minor water stains in the head margin throughout, a couple smudges and the title-page slightly thumbed, otherwise in very good condition. Spine subtly restored and possibly recased and bound a bit too tight. Brunet I, cols. 16-17; not in Blackmer.

BAJERI, Joh. Jacobi. (BAIER, Johann Jakob)
Norimbergae (Nuremberg): Wolfgangi Michahellis, 1708. First edition. Small 4to. (viii), 102 pp. Contemporary full vellum, gilt lettered morocco label, 19th century armorial bookplate of Cecil Deedes to the front pastedown. Frontispiece and 6 folding plates of fossils, all finely engraved by Johann Georg Puschner. Slight wear to the spine label, a little foxing to the frontispiece and some light marginal dampstaining at intervals, a very good copy overall. An uncommon and groundbreaking work in the sciences of geology and palaeontology, being an early attempt to provide a systematic classification of the fossils found in and around Nuremberg. The work paved the way for later analyses of fossils and the history of the earth on a more scientific basis. Baier proposed issuing additional volumes, but only managed a single supplement (published 1730) before his death at the age of 58.

Nieuwe verklaring over de proportionaal passer, waar in aangewesen word, hoe dezelve is te tekenen, en hoe tafeltjes daar toe dienende konnen werden berekent, vervolgens der zelver veelvuldig en nuttig gebruyk, zoo in de tel- als meetkonst; ...Amsterdam, Joannes Loots, 1708. 4to. With a large folding engraved plate illustrating the scales on the sector and 12 smaller folding engraved plates showcasing several of the calculations. Contemporary calf, gold-tooled spine. [4], 72 pp. First edition of "an important Dutch publication on the sector" (Roëll), instructing its reader in the use of the instrument. The sector or proportional compass, a calculating instrument consisting of two rulers joined by a hinge, was invented at the beginning of the 17th century and used for solving a large variety of mathematical problems in gunnery, surveying, navigation and (military) architecture. The author notes in his introduction that he came across a sector, which he thought would be a useful instrument, if it were accompanied by instructions in its use. Since no simple instructions could be found - at least not in Dutch - Warius decided to write his own treatise. After finishing several sets of instructions, he was given a copy of the Tractatus de stylometris (1661/1662) by Nicolaus Goldmann, which also contained instructions for the use of the sector, and he decided to incorporate parts in his own treatise. In the resulting book, Warius first introduces the different scales to be found on the sector, then gives 78 examples of calculations as well as a single example of the construction o … [Click Below for Full Description]

Contemporary mottled calf, red edges. [24], 485, [4], [3 blank] pp. First edition of the second French translation of a history of the conquest of Spain by the Moors, detailing events from 712 to 761 CE, a description of Spain during the same period, and a biography of Almanzor (ca. 938-1002), the Islamic ruler of the Iberian Peninsula at that time. "This was a false chronicle, halfway between a history and a novel of chivalry, supposedly translated from an Arabic manuscript by a (fictitious) historian called Tarif Abentarique that Luna had found in El Escorial" (García-Arenal & Mediano). In the account, first published in 1592, the Iberian Peninsula is saved by the Arab newcomers from a state of evil and corruption under the Visigoth rulers. Luna's account is a defence of Arab culture in Spain, independently of the religion of Islam and particularly defending the Arabic language. "His writings attempt to reimagine the origins and history of Christianity in the Peninsula such that its inhabitants of Arab origin may be seen as "natural" or "native" ...; therefore they cannot be expelled as alien invaders ..., but rather, and above all, may aspire to honors and privileges" (García-Arenal & Mediano).Miguel de Luna (ca. 1550-1615) was a Spanish physician of Arabic descent, who also publi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Contemporary mottled calf, with richly gold-tooled spine. [24], 485, 4, [3 blank] pp. First edition of the second French translation of a history of the conquest of Spain by the Moors, detailing events from 712 to 761 A.D., a description of Spain during the same period, and a biography of Almanzor (ca. 938-1002), the Islamic ruler of the Iberian Peninsula at that time. It was first published in Spanish in 1592, and according to the title-page the history itself is translated from an original 8th-century Arabic chronicle by "Abdulcacim Tarif Abentarique", but now generally believed to have been written directly in Spanish by the "translator", Miguel de Luna (ca. 1550-1619). The same seems to be the case for the biography of Almanzor by "Ali Abensufian". The complete volume was translated into French for the present edition by Guy Alexis Lobineau (1666-1727).

R Bonwicke, W Freeman, Tim Goodwin, et al, London, 1708. [8]+xv+248+[24] pages with title in red and black, frontispiece, 4 folding maps, 27 engraved figures (many folding) and index. Octavo (8 1/4" x 5"") bound in quarter leather with raised spine bands and black label in gilt over marbled boards. First English edition. Francois Leguat was a French Huguenot originating from the Province of Bresse, now part of the department of Ain, who fled to Holland in 1689 after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685. Marquis Henri du Quesne had published a book giving a glowing description of the island of Réunion. and, with the cooperation of the Dutch East India Company, was planning to establish a colony of French Protestant refugees on the island. Two ships were charted for the purpose and many refugees, including Leguat, were eager to become colonists, but when du Quesne learnt that France had sent a squadron of ships to the island, he abandoned this plan as he wanted to avoid any confrontation with the French. Instead he fitted out a small frigate, L'Hirondelle and instructed the captain, Anthony Valleau, to reconnoitre the Mascarene islands, and to take possession of whatever island was found unoccupied and suitable for colonisation. It appears that the colonists were not informed of this change of plan. On 10 July 1690 Leguat and nine male volunteers boarded L'Hirondelle in Amsterdam, intending to start a new life on the island of Réunion, which they believed had been abandoned by the French. Instead, on 16 May 1691, Leguat and seven companions were marooned on the uninh … [Click Below for Full Description]

To which is Annex'd a Discourse concerning Pilasters: and of several Abuses introduc'd into Architecture. by Charles Perrault, translated by John James and illustrated by John Sturt From 1708, the first English-language edition of this highly influential architectural treatise. The work was originally published in France in 1683 but did not find a wide audience until this edition was published in London. It was the first truly significant architectural work to circulate in England, and it inspired a spate of books on architecture over the next century. An extremely rare volume. I find one other copy of the first edition for sale online, listing for $9,500. The book remains in good shape overall but has some flaws.

In alto due putti alati sostengono un festone sul quale è iscritto il titolo "Lago di Garda", mentre in basso al centro, in decorativo cartiglio, viene riportata la scala grafica in "Migliara 5 che fanno una lega Germanica". Da notare, presso il golfo di Salò, l'isolotto recante la scritta Isola R. P. Francescani. Si tratta dell'isola di Garda sulla quale, secondo la tradizione, S. Francesco istituì un romitorio, in seguito sostituito da un Convento di Minori Osservanti, soppresso nel 1798.

OCKLEY Simon
1708. First edition. 8vo. Contemporary full calf, label with gilt lettering to spine; short split at head of upper joint, title label slightly chipped, otherwise very good. Slight (defunct) worming to rear endpapers and margins of index pages, rest of interior very clean & bright. xxviii, 391, [xix]pp. London, R. Knaplock et al., A first edition of Ockley?s ground-breaking history of the first three Rashidun Caliphs: Abu Bakr (r.632-34), Umar (r.634-44) and Uthman (r.644-56). It was the first English work on early Islamic history to make extensive use of texts by Muslim authors, and did much to transmit their learning to the reading public. Ockley began his research on the Arab conquests at Cambridge, working from late texts by Christian authors. The foundation for the present work, however, was laid at the Bodleian, where he spent two six week spells of intense study in August 1701 and April/May 1706. It was there, among the Islamic manuscripts, that he discovered earlier histories detailing periods sketchily covered in European sources. Later scholarship has proved some of the contributing manuscripts were not as early as Ockley had hoped, such as a copy of the Futuh al-Sham attributed to al-Waqidi (747-823), which, despite being dated 863, was actually copied around the time of the Crusades. Such mistakes were inevitable given the pioneering nature of Ockley?s work and the Futuh al-Sham remained a significant find, providing an Arab perspective on the conquests of Syria and Persia. Ockley later wrote a second volume, published in 1718, continuing his account from the fou … [Click Below for Full Description]
