        Åkskillige Anmaerkningar oefwer tessa tiders astrologiska phantantiska och enthusiasticka prognostiker spådomar och Prophetier,: beträffande menniskjans wäsende och wandel i gemen; men i synnerhet religions- och statz saker, förnemligast i the nordiska länder .

      1708 - 4to (190 x 135mm. ) [24], 148, [4]pp., folding woodcut plate of meteorite at p.74, some contemporary notes on title-page and in margins, modern half calf over marbled paper boards, red edges Linköping: Tryckt Åhr First edition. Magnus Gabriel Block (1669-1722), a doctor of medicine from Harderwijk, and physician to Charles XII of Sweden, had studied at Uppsala and travelled widely in Europe, at one time being found in Florence at the court of Cosimo III. In 1702 he visited England. The work is a sceptical history of prophecy and prognostication, and includes not only such figures as Stoeffler, Lucas Gauricus, Petrus de Alliaco, Cardano and others, but also figures like Nostradamus and even Paracelsus (who was a considerable influence on Block) as well as false prophecies of various types, and there are various quotations from Lucretius in one of the sections, including the famous 'Tantum Religio potuit suadere malorum'). To some extent it is based on the Cambridge divine John Spencer's A Discourse concerning prodigies (1663). On p.2 is the following reference to Jonathan Swift's famous anti-Partridge ?Bickerstaff? Prediction for the Year 1708, giving an insight into its rapid circulation around Europe, although Swift's identity remained hidden: 'London 9 april 1708: 'Inclosed I send you the desired pamphlet published under the name of one Isak Bickerstaff . writ by one M. Escourt a Player, for the diversion of the town . he tells you, that Partridge the almanachmaker should dye the 29 march last, and I can assure you, he is now alive .' Chapters 32, 35 and 36 are also concerned with Bickerstaff affair as an example of false prophecy - a testament to the rapid circulation of the affair around Europe which included German and Dutch translations. This work was translated into German and published by Brumme at Stade (near Hamburg) in 1711, and a note in Latin on the title-page of this copy refers very precisely to this publication: 'germanice translatus a Staderio prodiit Stadii 1711. 8 maj.' Block published a number of works in Latin, Swedish and even one in Spanish. A further note on the title-page refers to William Ramsay's Vindication of astrology whose Lux veritatis or Christian judicial astrology vindicated was published in 1651 Rare. We have located 3 copies: in National Library of Sweden, British Library, Texas (Harry Ransom). Provenance: Macclesfield North Library 57.I.5 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Leguat, Francis (c1637-1735)

      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 uninhabited island of Rodrigues. After spending a year on the island the group became homesick and set about constructing a wooden boat to allow them to escape to the island of Mauritius, then under Dutch control. The first attempt failed when they struck Rodrigues' reef; one of the party subsequently died from some illness (possibly brought about by contact with some poisonous reef fauna). They finally left Rodrigues on 21 May 1693[6] and spent a week being carried by the prevailing wind and current in their open boat to Mauritius, a distance of 300 nautical miles (560 km). They were initially well received by the Governor of the island, Rodolfo Diodati, but after an argument over a piece of ambergris that one of the group had brought from Rodrigues, and the discovery by the Governor of their plan to steal a dinghy and escape to Réunion, five of the party were put in prison. Relations were probably strained by the fact that France and Holland were on opposite sides in the Nine Years' War (1688–97). In February 1694 they were transferred to a tiny islet some distance from the shore and kept under abhorrent conditions. One of the group died in attempting to escape; he seems to have reached Mauritius' mainland with a crude float, but apparently perished in the woods too. Finally, in September 1696 the remaining members of the group were transferred to Jakarta and brought before the Dutch Council where they were found to be innocent. Leguat and the two other survivors arrived back in Europe in June 1698. Leguat appears to have settled in England and spent the rest of his life there. Leguat published a description of his adventures in 1708 when he was around 70 years old. The full French title was: Voyage et avantures de François Leguat et de ses compagnons, en deux isles désertes des Indes orientales : avec la relation des choses les plus remarquables qu'ils ont observées dans l'isle Maurice, à Batavia, au Cap de Bon Espérance, dans l'isle de Sainte Hélène, et en d'autres endroits de leur route. Le tout enrichi de cartes et de figures. The French edition was published in both London and Amsterdam. An English translation with the title A new voyage to the East-Indies was published in London and a Dutch edition in Utrecht. Some of the text is very similar to passages found in works by Maximilien Misson, another French Huguenot living in exile. It appears that either Leguat copied Misson or, more likely, Misson assisted Legu [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Opuscula sua botanica.Göttingen, Johann Wilhelm Schmid, 1749. 8vo. With engraved arms on title-page and 5 engraved folding plates. 19th-century paste paper boards.

      Blake, p. 196; W. Jardine, The naturalist's library X, p. 26; Stafleu & Cowan 2308. First and only edition of a work comprising a number of botanical essays written by the Swiss naturalist and anatomist Albrecht von Haller (1708-1777). "In 1749 he collected his isolated observations of the genera and species of plants, and on their fructification; and published them in a volume entitled Opuscula botanica" (Jardine). The work consists of six parts. The first deals with Haller's journey through the Alps in 1731, studying its flora. The second is a lecture on the methodological study of botany: "Haller was among the first botanists to realize the importance of herbaria to study variation in plants and he therefore purposely included material from different localities, habitats and developmental phases. Haller also grew many plants in the Alps himself" (Stafleu & Cowan). The following parts deal successively with Haller's botanical research in the "Hercynian Forest" in Germany (1 plate), the use of botany, botanical researches in Switzerland (2 plates), ending with an essay on garlic (2 plates).Some owner's annotations in ink on flyleaf. Title-page and folding plates foxed, leaves only slightly browned with some occasional minor foxing. Binding worn along the extremities. Overall a good copy.

Andreas Cellarius c. 1596, Neuhausen, Ð 1665, Hoorn) was a Dutch-German cartographer, best known for his Harmonia Macrocosmica of 1660, a major star atlas, published by Johannes Janssonius in Amsterdam.Andreas Cellarius, illustration of the Copernican system, from the Harmonia Macrocosmica 1660.He was born in Neuhausen, now a part of Worms, and was educated in Heidelberg. The Protestant Cellarius may have left Heidelberg at the onset of the Thirty years war in 1618 or in 1622 when the city came in Catholic hands. His activities are unclear at this time but based on his later works it is conjectured he spent time in Poland and may have even worked as a military engineer there. In 1625 he married Catharina Elt(e)mans in Amsterdam, where he worked as school master of a Latin School. After a brief stay in The Hague, the family moved to Hoorn. From 1637 until his death he was rector of the Latin School in Hoorn, where Pieter Anthoniszoon Overtwater was conrector.

      Monspelii, Apud Honoratum Pech Regis typogr 1708 - In-8° relié, cartonnage ocre de l'époque, pièce de titre papier calligraphiée, Jacques-François Chomel était le frère du botaniste et médecin Pierre-Jean-Baptiste (auteur d'un célèbre "Abrégé de l'histoire des plantes") et fils de Jean-Baptiste Chomel, originaire de Gannat (né en cette ville en 1639, et installé médecin à Paris en 1707). Jean-François devint intendant des Eaux de Vichy, à la suite de Claude Fouet, en 1715. On lui doit d'important travaux d'agrandissement du premier établissement thermal et le réaménagement des bains. Avant de s'attarder sur les eaux de Vichy, il donne une description rapide des eaux de Bourbon-Lancy, La Bourboule, Evaux en Combrailles, Balleruc en Languedoc, Barbazan, Barèges, Bagnières de Bigorre, Dignes, Bourbonne, Bourbon-l'Archambault, Chaudes-Aigues, Le Mont-d'Or, Néris, Château-Morand, Vic-Le-Comte, Vic en Carladais, etc, etc. S'appuyant sur les écrits antérieurs de Fouet et sur ses longues orbservations, il décrit les différentes sources d'eaux minérales de Vichy, leurs situations dans la ville, leur emploi thérapeutique. On trouve à la suite un petit traité sur l'analyse, les vertus et les usages des eaux de Bourbon-l'Archambault, puis celles du Mont-d'Or, de La Bourboule, Saint-Nectaire, Sainte-Margueritte, Chanonat, Besse, Jaude, Saint-Pierre et Saint-Marc à Clermont-Ferrand. - - - BOUND WITH (relié avec) : Giorgio J B Locano [Locan, Georges Jean Baptiste] : Dissertatio physiologica, de mechanico feminarum tributo .

        Lexicon Technicum Or, An Universal English Dictionary of Arts and Sciences: Explaining not only the Terms of Art, but the Arts Themselves

      London: Dan. Brown et al, 1708. Second Edition. Full-Leather. Very Good. Unpaginated. Engraved portrait frontispiece and hundreds of illustrations, full page and within text. Two pull-out diagrams. Full leather with raised bands and blind impressing. Rebacked with new spine label. Label residue on front pastedown. Small hole in portrait frontispiece. Ink inscription top of title page and paper repair on rear. Pages darkened, minor foxing, a few thumb marks and dampness stains. A few roughened edges. A tear in first fold-out diagram and chip from second diagram. Rear endpaper has red stains. "Lexicon Technicum" was in many respects the first alphabetical encyclopedia written in English. Although the emphasis was on mathematical subjects, its contents go beyond what would be called science or technology today, in conformity with the broad 18th-century understanding of the terms "arts" and "science." It includes entries on the humanities and fine arts, notably law, commerce, music and heraldry; it does not include theology, biographies or poetry. John Harris (c. 1666 - 1719) was an English writer best known as the editor of this work which first appeared in 1704. A clergyman, he was elected a fellow of the Royal Society in 1696 and was its vice-president for a time. In 1698, he delivered a lecture entitled "Atheistical Objections against the Being of God and His Attributes fairly considered and fully refuted." The friendship of Sir William Cowper, afterwards lord chancellor, secured for Harris the office of private chaplain, a prebend in Rochester cathedral (1708), and the rectory of several parishes. A man of many interests, he was working on a complete history of Kent at the time of his death. Sadly, he is said to have died in poverty brought on by poor management of his financial affairs. As in many books, the illustrations are an important part of the Lexicon's appeal. Check out the great "Fortification" plate with accompanying explanations - or John Marshall's "New Invented Double Microscope," the second fold-out diagram.

        L'Amerique Septentrionale Dressée sur les Observations de Mrs. de l'Academie Royale des Sciences..

      Paris: "Chez l'Auteur sur le Quai de l'Horloge", 1708. Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline. A foundation map of America. "In 1700, Claude and Guillaume De L'Isle [first] published their foundation map of North America. What better way to usher in the eighteenth century cartographically than with this significant and influential map. It encapsulates an era in which the French exemplified a reliance on scientific mapping and beautifully incorporated it into the earlier influence of decorative augmentation" (Burden). Tooley adds: "A foundation map. The Great Lakes based on Coronelli show the French strong points at Tadousac, Quebec, Fort Sorel, Montreal & Fort Frontenac. the English settlements confined to the east of the Alleghenies, with Fort and River Kinibeki as the border between New England and Acadia. The Mississippi valley area is shown well developed with the recent French settlement of d'Iberville at Bilochy and forts at Bon Secours and St. Louis. In this map De L'Isle corrected longitude positions and was the first to revert to a peninsula form of California." Perhaps most significantly, in the second and subsequent states of the map the mouth of the Mississippi is accurately shown for the first time, being the first map to depict information from the surveys of the D'Iberville expedition. This copy Burden's sixth state, with De L'Isle's address as "Quai de l'Horloge" and with Renard's imprint erased.

      Paris, 1708. Coining the Word "Paleography"Montfaucon, Bernard de (1655-1741). Palaeographia graeca, sive de ortu et progressu literarum graecarum . . . Folio. [18], xxix, 574pp. Engraved frontispiece and 9 plates (some folding); OCLC calls for 7 plates total, apparently not counting the frontispiece and the 2 hors texte plates in signature C. Paris: apud Ludovicum Guerin . . . Viduam Joannis Boudot . . . et Carolum Robustel, 1708. 380 x 248 mm. Blind-tooled vellum ca. 1708, front cover warped, bookplate and ownership inscription removed from front pastedown. Frontispiece creased, upper right corners of first few leaves a bit frayed, title a little soiled but a very good, clean and crisp copy. From the library of Swedish diplomat Ulric Celsing (1731-1805), with his inscription, “Ex libris U. Celsing a Constpte & Piastres” on front pastedown. First Edition of the work that introduced the term “paleography,” and the founding work of Byzantine and Greek paleography in particular. The formal study of paleography and diplomatics (the study of documents) was created by the Benedictine monk Jean Mabillon (1632-1707) in his De re diplomatica (1681); however, the word “paleography” itself was the creation of Mabillon’s pupil Bernard de Montfaucon, who first used it in print in the present work. “What Mabillon did for the study of medieval Latin documents, Montfaucon, after Mabillon’s death the leading member of the congregation of St. Maur, achieved in the field of Greek studies. His monumental work, published the year after Mabillon’s death, also created a new discipline, that of Byzantine paleography. Like Mabillon’s work, his results have had to be modified only in details, chiefly due to the applications of technical inventions such as photography and, in Montfaucon’s case, to the discovery of Greek papyri which has immensely widened the scope of modern research. Montfaucon applied his vast knowledge of Greek manuscripts to exemplary editions of the writings of Anastasius, Origen, and John Chrysostom which provided reliable texts, not yet entirely superseded, of these Fathers of the Church and stimulated patristic studies” (Printing and the Mind of Man 175). This copy is from the library of Swedish diplomat Ulric Celsing, who served as envoy in Constantinople from 1770 to 1780.

      [Amsterdam?:] Printed in the Year, , 1708. Newly translated out of the original Tongues and with the former Translations diligently compared and revised by his Majestie's special command. With most profitable Annotations upon all the hard places, and other things of great importance. Which notes have never before been set forth with this new Translation; but are now placed in due order with great care and industrie. Folio (274 x 218 mm). Contemporary diced calf over wooden boards, brass furniture of corner pieces, central lozenge (decorated with stars and fleur-de-lys), and functioning clasps (possibly stylised representations of thistles). Engraved title page and double-page maps, printed in double columns. Brass lozenge missing from back cover, joints split but sound, some wear and scuffs, old burn marks on back cover, general paper toning. An imposing Queen Anne Bible with a Scottish provenance, the rear free endpaper bearing the genealogy of the Jaffray family, beginning with the marriage of John Jaffray and Jean Russall in January 1729 and noting the baptism of Henry Jaffray in November 1731 by Ebenezer Erskine, quite possibly the founder of the Secession church in Scotland, "widely admired for his preaching" (ODNB); this may put the family in the vicinity of either Perth or Stirling, as Erskine was based at Portmoak, south of Perth, before moving to Stirling in 1731.
