LEGUAT, Francois:
Places in their Way to and from the Desart Isles. London: Printed for R Bonwicke W Freeman Tim Goodwin et al: First edition, 1708. 8vo., [6], xvi, 248pp. [24]pp. including bookseller's advertisement, engraved frontispiece and 32 finely engraved maps, plans and plates (16 folding). Leaf L3 professionally repaired on extreme lower corner without any loss of text etc, some moderate age toning to text as usual, but the plates are remarkably clean and fresh. Bound in contemporary full speckled calf which has been professionally and tastefully rebacked with the original spine neatly relaid, some rubbing to extremities of three corner tips. A VG tightly bound copy of this extremely scarce work with the plates in remarkably clean condition. The first English edition, of the French Huguenot Leguat's account of his travels in the Indian Ocean, published the same year as the first French and Dutch editions. According to the narrative, a party of Huguenots under Leguat's direction were sent by the Dutch government in 1690 to the Ile de Bourbon (Reunion), although the island had already been controlled by the French since 1663. Leguat and his associates continued to Rodriguez Island, where he landed on May 30, 1691 seven others. Although no serious hardships were suffered there, the party left the island two years later for Mauritius, controlled at that time by the Dutch. Leguat eventually returned to Europe in 1698. According to Howegego, "the voyage has always been regarded with suspicion, some suggesting that it was composed by Francois Maximilien Misson from other French sources.

Bussières Jean de
Metternich, Coloniae Agrippinae. Bussières Jean de ~ Flosculi Historiarum. Coloniae Agrippinae, Metternich, 1708 In-8, 1 vol., reliure en peau de truie "à la hollandaise" de couleur ivoire, sur ais de bois, avec estampage et fers à froid composant un ornement de cadres fleuris, dos à nerfs avec titre manuscrit, gardes bleutées et deux fermoirs en laiton montés sur lanières qui assurent encore parfaitement le maintien de l'ouvrage clos. Les Fosculi Historiarum sont des petites fleurs historiques : Bussières raconte l'histoire du monde dans ses traits les plus saillants et mémorables. On y trouve aussi quelques remarques de l'auteur, des faits lyonnais et surtout un latin stylé que Guy Patin louera dans une de ses lettres. Jean de Bussières est un jésuite français, né en 1607 à Villefranche-sur-Saône (Rhône), mort en 1678. En 1631, il entra dans la Compagnie de Jésus où il exerça les charges de recteur à Mâcon et à Lyon. Il composa en vers latins un poème sur l'île de Ré, délivré des Anglais, de Rhea liberata (1655) et ne tarda pas à se faire un nom dans la poésie latine. On conserve à la bibliothèque de Lyon plusieurs ouvrages du P. Bussières, demeurés manuscrits ; les plus importants sont une Histoire du Japon et une Histoire d¿Espagne [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

A translation, according to the subtitle of this work, 'from the High Dutch,' apparently by Anton Wilhelm Bohme (1673-1722), a German Lutheran royal chaplain at St. James's Palace in London known as an author and translator. A copy was said to have been in the library of English poet John Byrom (1692-1763), for whom Tauler was influential (Ward, Sacred Poems of John Byrom, Chetham Society 1895, p.383). A handsome copy of this rare translation. ~LR1~ Johannes Tauler (circa 1300-1361) was a German mystic, a Catholic preacher and a theologian. A disciple of Meister Eckhart, he belonged to the Dominican order. Tauler was known as one of the most important members of the Rhineland Mystics.

PLACCIUS, VINCENT
1708. Hamburg, Liebernickel, 1708. Folio. 18 ff; 726, 623, 195pp. Engraved allegorical frontispiece. Contemporary full vellum binding. Vincent Placcius (1642-1699) was a prolific writer. The present work is the chief early work on books published anonymously or under pseudonym. It was published nine years after Placcius's death and identifies 2777 anonymous works. The engraved frontispiece shows how the learned author or editor, standing in an academic library, takes the masks from the faces of several authors and attaches them to a cord. The cord with the masks refers to "Zettelkasten" to which single slips of paper with textual quotations could be flexibly attached, facilitating sorting and storing of text. A very good copy. [cf. Petzholdt p. 102; Breslauer/Folter #70, Brunet IV,682, erroneously requiring the continuation published 32 years later, Malclès, la bibliographie pp. 48-9, Barbier I.xxxiii]. "Enormously enlarged" edition of "the first independently published bibliography of pseudonyma and anonyma" (Breslauer / Folter, Bibliography # 70, on the 1674 edition). The work dramatically expands the author's De scriptis & scriptoribus anonymis atque pseudonymis syntagma (1674), a comparatively modest effort in 4to describing 1,500 books, whereas the present title is a massive folio containnig upwards of ten thousand entries. Both were preceded by an appendix to a legal dissertaion by Friedrich Geissler (De Nominum mutatione et anonymis scriptoribus, Leipzig 1669), considered the first bibliography exclusively devoted to anonyma according to Breslauer / Folter, bu … [Click Below for Full Description]

La Haye, Guillaume de Voys, 1708.Sm.8vo. Contemporary calf, spine gilt (sl. rubbed). With engraved title-vignette and large folding engraved map. (24),380 pp.* First published in Paris in 1705; with armorial bookplate of Philip Lord Hardwicke Baron of Hardwicke. - 'Niccolao Manucci's book, from which Catrou drew much of his material, was not printed until 1907, when it was translated by William Irvine (the Indian Text Society), of the Bengal Civil Service, for the reason that it had disappeared from view until it turned up in Berlin a few years ago. Its title was Storia do Mogor and it was written partly in Italian, partly in French, and partly in Portuguese. Historians have long bewailed its disappearance, for hitherto they have been unable to check the statesments of Catrou. Manucci practically spent his life in India and witnessed so many things and records them so fully and delightfully that he is almost second to none as an historian of Aurangzib's reign' (Cox I, p.285).
