         Dissertationum Miscellanearum Pars Prima, [Altera, & Tertia et Ultima]

      1708 - First edition. 3 parts in 1. Folding map of Ceylon, engraved vignette to each title& 6 engraved plates (2 folding), with 3 engravings in the text. 12mo. Nineteenth-century half vellum, gilt, joint repaired. [viii], 232, [22]; [viii], 324, [46], [viii], 250, [30]pp. Utrecht, Broedelet, 1706, 1707 & These three volumes, which appeared over three years, and are dedicated to three different figures, contain 13 separate dissertations on antiquarian and linguistic topics. The first volume is dedicated to Piere Danuiel Huet (1630-1721), a French bishop and savant, the second to Antoine Galland (1646-1715), French Arabist and translator of The 1001 Nights, and the third to Gispert Cuper (1644-1716), Dutch numismatist and scholar. Dissertation XII in volume III (pp. 141-229) is entitled 'De linguis americanis' and discusses (with some details of vocabulary taken from earlier books) the languages of S. America (languages of Brasil, Chile, Peru, Mexico, the Caribbean) and at p.208 the language of Virginia. Firstly a vocabulary list is given taken from Eliot's Indian Grammar published at Cambridge (Mass.) in 1666, to a copy of which extremely rare book, it is clear Reland had access, and secondly, taken from the Eliot Bible of 1663, we find printed chapter I of Genesis (p. 212-214). There is then another Algonquin vocabulary list (taken from Lahontan's Mémoires de l'Amérique septentrionale, The Hague,1703), followed by a short section on the Huron language, and then an account of Icelandic/Eskimo vocabulary. At the end of the volume, after the index, are printed various Slavonic versions of the Lord's Prayer. A Dutch scholar, cartographer and philologist, Adriaan Reland (1676-1718) was chosen to tutor the son of Hans Willem Bentinck, favourite of William of Orange, and later first Earl of Portland. Having refused Bentinck's offer to move to England he became professor of philosophy at the University of Harderwijk in 1699 and in 1701 professor of oriental languages at the University of Utrecht. He remains well-known for his thorough and objective study of Islam and for his history of the Holyland. Sabin, 69242. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Haemisphaerium Stellatum Australe Antiquum/ Haemisphaerium Stellatum Boreale Antiquum

      Valck & Schenk 1708 - A Pair of Celestial Maps, 1708. Cellarius/ Valck & Schenk Celestials. Valck & Schenk Amsterdam 1708 original copper engraved antique maps with original full colour in a dark wooden frame with some gold accents and corner decorations in cream coloured museums quality mount with golden slip. frame 71 x 79 cm, print 43 x 51 cm. A most amazing pair of original coloured celestial maps by Andreas Celarrius (1596-1665) and published by Petrus Schenk and Gerad Valk, from 'Harmonia Macrocosmica seu Atlas Universalis et Novus' (Harmonious Universe or New and Universal Atlas) - the finest celestial atlas ever produced! - , published in Amsterdam, 1708. The photos are not doing the maps any justice: the colours within the hemispheres are very vibrant and fresh, depicting the Zodiacs, whilst the area outside the circle is decorated with putti and windheads, coloured in off-green wash-colour. Each map presents a view of the constellations of the Northern or Southern Sky superimposed over the North or South Pole. According to classical astronomy, championed by Aristotle and Ptolemy, the stars were mounted on a huge, transparent crystal sphere part of a divine system in which all of the stars and planets orbited the Earth. The present images were originally engraved in 1660 by Jan Janssonius, during the greatest era of Dutch map-making, a period that saw the perfection of the art of representing scientific ideas in a graphic form using engravings. It was reprinted by Janssonius in 1661, and again in 1708 by Gerard Valk and Petrus Schenk, who added their names to the plates. Schenk was born in Germany but settled in Amsterdam where he became a pupil of Valck, the engraver. In 1687, he married Valck’s daughter and thereafter, both families were active over a long period of time with a wide range of interests as print sellers, publishers of books, maps, topographical and architectural drawings and globe makers. Their work was finely presented and demonstrates the precision and elegance associated with maps and engravings produced during this period. Andreas Cellarius was born in about 1596 in Neuhausen, a small town near Worms in the Rhine-Hesse region of Germany. From 1625 to 1637 Cellarius worked as a schoolmaster in Amsterdam and The Hague, and in 1637 moved to Hoorn, where he was appointed as headmaster or rector of the Latin School. He published a number of works during his lifetime, but the last and greatest was the Harmonia Macrocosmica. Cellarius resigned from his post as headmaster in early 1665 and died in Hoorn in November of the same year. [ref: 2869 ]

         A supplement to the first part of the Gentleman Instructed, with a word to the ladies. Written for the instruction of the young nobility of both sexes.

      London, printed for E. Read ..... and sold by J. Morphew. 1708. 12mo., (8) + 244pp., contemporary panelled calf, some wear to spine at head and foot, but overall a very good copy indeed. First edition: very scarce (ESTC finds copies at only 12 libraries altogether in B. Isles & N. America). The first edition of The Gentleman Instructed> had been published in 1704 (2nd. 1704. 3rd. 1707). Not in Greenough.[A bibliography of the Theophraston character in English.>] With some brilliantly evocative observations on the proper behaviour of girls and young ladies. Thus: 'For beauty being the chief object of a lady's care, she must help nature with art, and polish the work of the Omnipotent with a French wash; she must fence it against the assaults of heats, the excursions of pimples, and the dangerous inroads of the small pox. She must, in fine, expose her life to save her complexion. And then to mould her shape to the Court Standard, what pains does the mother take on the one side, and what a martyrdom does the child undergo on the other? ...... And now Miss leaves the nursery to pile at the Dancing-School, and to finger the guitar, or the virginals; and when she has master'd a minuet, and an air A-la-mode, when she can practice a brace of grimaces, and wave the fan, Good God! how Mamma titters; she is now fledg'd for the world, and sets out for company. But she must beware of reservedness, and fence against a blush; for these are country vices, symptoms of rusticity, crimes against breeding, and the freedom of the town .....'. [pp. 60-61]. Darrell's 'most popular work was The Gentleman Instructed in the Conduct of a Virtuous and Happy Life>, the second edition of which was published in 1704. It was published with a supplement, ‘A word to the ladies>', in 1708 and was in its tenth edition by 1731. According to Dodd it was ‘much admired and often reprinted' (Dodd's Church History>, 3.494). It was translated into French by P. de Mareuil SJ in 1728 and also into Hungarian and Italian.' [Thompson Cooper, rev. Ruth Jordan in ODNB].

         Publicum Caroli Sagrii et Josephi Capycii Nobilium Neapolitanorum funus a Carolo Austrio III. Hispan. Indiar. & Neap. Rege indictum [...]

      Neap. [Napoli]: Typis Felicis Mosca, 1708. [18]; 57 pagine. 30x22 cm.Rilegatura coeva in piena pergamena in mediocre stato di conservazione, con aloni, gore e macchie. Numerose incisioni nel testo. [M095] Rarissima edizione originale.L'opera documenta i funerali, celebrati a Napoli nella Chiesa di San Domenico Maggiore il 23 e 24 febbraio 1708, di Carlo di Sangro e Giuseppe Capece, due ribelli contrari alla corona spagnola, uccisi per volontà del duca di Medinaceli, viceré spagnolo, nel 1701 e 1702 in quanto sostenitori delle pretese austriache sul regno. Quando gli austriaci occuparono Napoli nel 1707, i due uomini furono proclamati martiri e per il 23 e il 24 febbraio 1708 furono organizzate le loro solenni esequie per ordine del viceré, il conte Wierich von Daun, e per espresso desiderio di Carlo III d'Austria; come Vico stesso riferisce, in latino, negli «Acta funeris» che aprono il volume: «Il conte di Daun [...] era appena entrato [...] in Napoli [...] quando ricevette una lettera di questo tenore, scrittagli a tale proposito dal re, come se fosse ancora in marcia: "Memore di tutti coloro che gloriosamente sono morti in difesa del mio regno, e memore soprattutto di Carlo di Sangro e Giuseppe Capece e di quanto essi siano stati benemeriti di me per la loro fedeltà e la loro devozione, poiché mi si dice che per ordine del duca d'Angiò le loro teste sono state esposte a monito nella città di Napoli [...], espressamente ordino che tu provveda subito ad allestire loro un funerale per quanto possibile magnifico, al quale insieme con te partecipino tutti i dignitari affinché ad esso sia conferita una maggiore solennità"». Il conte di Daun incaricò quindi padre Benedetto Laudati di redigere l'elogio dei defunti e Giambattista Vico degli altri adempimenti, tra cui il resoconto della cerimonia e presumibilmente la stessa cura del volume.Allo scritto di Vico seguono tre grandi incisioni: le prime due rappresentano gli addobbi allestiti nella chiesa, su una delle quali figurano due medaglioni raffiguranti Capece e di Sangro; la terza raffigura invece il catafalco. Si hanno quindi l'orazione latina del padre Benedetto Laudati, tre lunghe iscrizioni del Vico, quattordici distici, sempre del Vico, che, attraverso eleganti incisioni, celebrano le gesta dei due martiri, e ancora quattordici brevi iscrizioni del Vico. Chiudono il volume tre distici di Federico Pappacoda, marchese di Policastro e principe di Centola.

Another ten leaves or so with minor but unobtrusive wormhole. Small rusthole in columns 18-19. Bookplate of L. F. Rääf. A very good copy.Warmholtz Bibliotheca historica Sueo-Gothica 1660, the note. The Swedish catholic Johannes Vastovius followed Sigismund to Poland when the latter was dethroned as King of Sweden and became his court chaplain and librarian in Cracow. Vastovius' book on the lives of the Swedish saints was first published in Cologne in 1623. It treats Scandinavian "saints" from bishop Hubertus in the 9th century to the so-called Wiks-Pilt in 1525, the majority of which never were beaitified, and to an even lesser extent canonized. The original edition soon became rare and the work was republished by Erik Benzelius the Younger in a new, annotated edition. Benzelius excluded the papal letters but kept the dedication to Sigismund from the original, and, with his Lutheran readership in mind, supplied it with appropriate reservations.
