        Recherches historiques sur l'état de religion Chrétienne au Japon, relativement à la Nation Hollandoise.London, Paris, Couturier, 1778. 12mo. Modern marbled boards.

      Cordier, Japonica, col. 443; ESTC T147442. First separate edition, in the original French, of a work on Christianity in Japan by the controversial Dutch politician Onno Zwier van Haren (1713-1779). Zwier van Haren tries to answer several questions about the relation between the persecutions of Christians and the arrival of the Dutch in Japan: "Are there still Christians in Japan?" and "Were there European Christians who spat on and trampled on images of Christ and Mary in Japan?". Apparently these were stories that reached (and worried) Europe. Zwier van Haren deals with these question very clearly, however, he uses his information and facts quite selectively, as his main goal is to restore the bad reputation of the Dutch.Some faint thumbing to the last page and some minor waterdamage to the lower right corner of the first three leaves, otherwise in very good condition.

        [Fritillary or Guinea-hen flower] Frittillaria; [Fragrantr jonquil] Narcissus Juncifolius præcox maior; [Garden narcissus] Pseudo Narcissus luteus

      Eichstatt, 1713. Hand-coloured engraving. In excellent condition. Basil Besler published "Hortus Eystettensis", the earliest large folio botanical, at Eichstatt near Nuremburg, in 1613. He worked on the drawings for the 374 copper engravings over a period of sixteen years using the plants in the garden of Bishop Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, his patron. Depicted in this florilegium were flowers, herbs, vegetables and newly discovered plants such as tobacco and peppers. Besler was, in modern terms, a botanist and horticulturalist, and he was familiar with real and alleged medicinal properties of various plants. Besler had the good fortune to live at a time when exotic plants were being shipped to Europe from all over the world. The garden that he organized and illustrated for his patron was both ornamental and experimental, and the large book he had engraved after his drawings was unique.

        A discourse of free-thinking, occasion'd by the rise and growth of a sect call'd Free-thinkers.

      London 8vo (19.4 cm, 7.625"). 178 pp., [1 (blank)] f. (lacking preliminary material).. 1713 First edition, early issue of a controversial work that spawned an extensive debate. The author, a close friend of John Locke and of freethinkers John Toland and Matthew Tindal, was a Cambridge-educated philosopher who, despite the furor over his writings, was acknowledged by his contemporaries as "an amiable and upright man . . . [who] made all readers welcome to the use of a free library" (DNB). His Discourse, an argument in favor of individual logical assessment of Christian doctrine and other beliefs, brought forth vigorous rebuttals by Richard Bentley, George Berkeley, Jonathan Swift, and others, but remains => a landmark work of rationalistic religion. Opinions continue to vary, even in modern criticism, regarding whether Collins's work promoted deism or atheism; he himself claimed that increased independent critical thinking was responsible for the decline in belief in witchcraft. This copy lacks the two preliminary leaves. The catchword on p. 7 is "allow'd." This is the variant issue with a final blank leaf instead of the advertisement leaf. Provenance: From the library of the Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School; properly deaccessioned. Evidence of Readership: Occasional pencil markings and a few marginal comments in the first third of text. Recent blue-grey marbled paper–covered boards, spine with printed paper label. Title-page repaired with loss of perhaps ten letters of epigraph, with partially trimmed name inked in an early hand, and with very elegant old institutional pressure-stamp; title-page verso with pencilled call numbers; first text page with institutional stamp in upper margin, inked and pencilled numeral in lower margin. Two preliminary leaves lacking. A few leaves closely trimmed at one or another margin; last 20 with very short marginal tears not approaching text. Light age-toning and occasionally a spot; generally, clean; marked as above. An influential work on rational religion with evidence of use.

        Remarks upon a late discourse of free-thinking: In a letter to F.H. D.D. by Phileleutherus Lipsiensis.

      London: John Morphew 8vo (19.8 cm, 7.75"). [2], [3]–85, [1(blank)] pp. (57/58 omitted in pagination).. 1713 First edition of one of the best-known responses to Anthony Collins's landmark Discourse of Free-Thinking. Bentley's Remarks was considered a crushing rebuttal of Collins's treatise, and of deism as interpreted in the Discourse; the DNB says "Bentley destroyed any pretensions of Collins to thorough scholarship, exposed many gross blunders, and claimed Collins's principle of free inquiry as his own and that of all the orthodox believers. Recent marbled paper–covered boards, front cover with gilt-stamped leather title-label. Title-page with author's name inked in an early hand, dedication with dedicatee's name (Francis Hare) inked in the same hand. Title-page with two spots of light staining; pages otherwise clean, with a very few early inked marginalia.

        TRAITEZ DE PAIX ET DE COMMERCE, NAVIGATION ET MARINE, ENTRE LA FRANCE ET L'ANGLETERRE. [bound with:] ...ENTRE LA FRANCE ET LES ETATS GENERAUX DES PROVINCES UNIES DES PAYS-BAS. [bound with:] ...LA FRANCE ET LA SAVOYE. [bound with:] ...LA FRANCE ET LA PRUSSE

      Paris: Chez Francois Fourneir, Avec Privilege de sa Majeste, 1713. Quarto. Modern half red morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. Contemporary ink number in upper outer corner of each titlepage. Near fine. The growing power of France and its attempt to install a Bourbon on the Spanish throne in 1700 led to a general European war from 1702 to 1712, with widespread repercussions in the American colonies. Known in Europe as the War of the Spanish Succession, it was called Queen Anne's War in America. During its course, the French and Indians launched bloody raids on British frontier settlements, and the British seized parts of Canada. The war went badly for the French and Spanish and well for the British, who were thus able to gain favorable terms. A group of treaties grew out of this settlement, which did much to determine European and American circumstances in the early 18th century. The present volume collects the official French printing of four of the treaties signed by France: those with Great Britain, the Estates General (the Netherlands), the Kingdom of Savoy, and Prussia. France actually signed two treaties with Great Britain, a treaty of navigation and commerce, and a general peace treaty. France returned Hudson Bay to the British and gave up Newfoundland and Nova Scotia, as well as St. Kitts in the Caribbean, and acknowledged England's sovereignty over the Iroquois. The French received fishing rights off the coast of Newfoundland, and both countries agreed to extend most-favored nation trade status to the other. France was also able to keep its position in Acadia and at Louisborg, which proved very troublesome to the British in later wars. One of the supplementary articles at the conclusion addresses the tobacco trade. This printing of the French-British treaty is not in TPL, which records two other printings in Latin, French, and English. Not in EUROPEAN AMERICANA or Arents. The printings of the French treaties with the other three powers are quite scarce. The Dutch gained little from the French, although the general weakening of Spain greatly strengthened their position in world trade. Savoy gained territory as well, including Sicily. An important group of treaties with great American significance.

      Eichstatt, 1713. Hand-coloured engraving. In excellent condition. Basil Besler published "Hortus Eystettensis", the earliest large folio botanical, at Eichstatt near Nuremburg, in 1613. He worked on the drawings for the 374 copper engravings over a period of sixteen years using the plants in the garden of Bishop Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, his patron. Depicted in this florilegium were flowers, herbs, vegetables and newly discovered plants such as tobacco and peppers. Besler was, in modern terms, a botanist and horticulturalist, and he was familiar with real and alleged medicinal properties of various plants. Besler had the good fortune to live at a time when exotic plants were being shipped to Europe from all over the world. The garden that he organized and illustrated for his patron was both ornamental and experimental, and the large book he had engraved after his drawings was unique. The prints, made by a team of master engravers, are strong and exquisitely done.

        Bibliothecae Americanae Primordia. An Attempt Towards laying the Foundation of an American Library, in several books, papers, and writings, humbly given to the Society for Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts ... By a Member of the said Society

      Index by the Rev. Robert Watts. London: printed for J. Churchill, 1713. Quarto signed in 2s. (8 1/4 x 6 1/4 inches). (Lacking the front blank and blank A1 [i.e. blank leaf between the Dedication and the start of the bibliography], Kk1 and Kk2 cut down without affecting the text area but likely supplied from another copy at an early date, light dampstaining). 19th-century red half morocco over marbled paper-covered boards, the border between the leather and marbled paper ruled in gilt on the covers, spine in six compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second, the others with repeat decoration in gilt centering on a flower-spray tool, marbled endpapers Rare copy of "the earliest exclusively American catalogue" (Church): one of only 250 copies printed. "White Kennett, Bishop of Peterborough, gave his extensive collection of Americana to the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts in 1712, with the intention that the gift should be accompanied by a printed catalogue of the collection. This wish was thwarted for a while by the decision to have Robert Watts compile what became an extensive and essential index of 223pp. Kennett had in the meantime continued his collecting at a pace which necessitated the inclusion of 55-page appendix and the catalogue was finally published in 1713. The result is the best catalogue of books relating to America extant, [arranged in chronological order],the titles being copied at full length with the greatest exactness, together with the name of the printer, and the number of pages in each volume...It is rich in English tracts relating to New England" (Rich). Pinelo's Epitome de la biblioteca oriental i occidental (1629) includes a listing of books of Indian and Asian as well as American interest, but Kennett's is the first printed catalogue devoted exclusively to books relating to America. An account of the library is given in the Massachusetts Historical Society, Proceedings , vol. 20 (1883). Despite Kennett's stated wish that the books were intended for the "perpetual use" of the members of the Society a number were later given to the British Museum, and some "had been lost or mislaid" by the time Sotheby's prepared the auction catalogue for the sale of the Society's library in 1917.

        Phytographia Curiosa, exhibens arborum, fruticum, herbarum & florum icones, ducentis & quadraginta quinque tabulis ad vivum delineatis ac artisiciosissime aeri incisis

      Amsterdam: Rod. & Gerh. Westenios, 1713. 2 parts (text and plates) in one volume, folio. (15 5/16 x 9 11/16 inches). Half-title, additional engraved title with elaborate emblematic surround (bound in as frontispiece), letterpress title in red and black, engraved dedication leaf to Dr. Benjamin Fagel incorporating his coat-of-arms, 2 engraved head-pieces (the second repeated once) by J. Baptiste [Adam] after Jan Goeree, woodcut initials and tail-piece, 245 engraved plates of plants, all but one unsigned but some or all possibly by Joseph Mulder. (Paper loss along the fore-edge margin of one plate not affecting the image, ten letters on title in ink facsimile, else scattered minor foxing). 18th-century panelled calf, covers tooled in blind, rebacked to style, spine with raised bands in seven compartments, red morocco lettering piece in the second compartment. (Restoration at the tips). First Latin edition, second issue of the most extraordinary botanical work of the pre-Linnean period, with "illustrations that are remarkable for their elegance and originality" (Oak Spring Flora). This is the second issue of the Latin edition of the author's Naauwkeurige beschryving der aardgewassen (1696) based, in part, on his Waare Oeffning der Planten (1672). Abraham Munting "was an eminent professor of botany and chemistry at the University of Groningen ... [he also] founded one of the most extensive botanical gardens of the period, known as the 'Paradise of Groningen', which he directed from 1658 up until his death in 1683. Munting wrote a number of works on medical-botanical topics, but [the present work] ... enjoyed particular success, at least in part due to the novelty of the plates, which, in a radical departure from ... the traditional florilegium, presented its plant species against charming landscape backgrounds ...The illustrations are remarkable for their elegance and originality ... Each plate shows a different plant in flower, including many exotics from America and other distant lands. The plant dominates the foreground, filling the entire page, often with a detail of the fruit or flowers presented on a smaller scale. In some cases the plants are presented à trompe l'oeil , while in others they are arranged in decorated urns. Some gardening tools are depicted as well. The name of each plant appears written [in Latin] on an elegantly fluttering ribbon or cartouche, or on a crumbling marble plaque. The originality of the work lies, however, in the small landscapes that have been inserted into the background of the plates. Here the artist gave free rein to his imagination, delineating scenes that in reality bore little relation to the habitat of the plant. Pastorals with animals and figures alternate capriously with vistas of walled cities and landscapes containing statues and ruins." ( Oak Spring Flora p.174). Cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p.123 (1702 issue); cf. Hunt 404 (1702 issue); Nissen BBI I 1429; Oak Spring Flora 45.

        "An historical account of the conspiracies by the Earls of Gowry, and Robert Logan of Restalrig, against King James VI. of glorious memory. Containing the facts, proofs and judgements, in these causes. To which is added, A vindication of Robert III., king of Scotland, and all his descendents, from the imputation of bastardy"

      Edinburgh: printed by James Watson. 1713. "8vo, 2 parts in 1, as issued; pp. xiv, [2], 127, [1]; 80; title page and dedication page printed in red and black; slightly later full calf, gilt- decorated spine, and possibly a remboitage binding; a.e.g.; good and sound. With an interesting unattributed inscription on the flyleaf: ""The gift / of His Grace / John, Duke of Buckingham / July the 10. 1713."" And with a subsequent inscription beneath it: ""E libris Samuelis Wesley / E. A. P. G. / ex dono patris."" John Sheffield, 1st Duke of Buckingham and Normanby, KG, PC (1648-1721), was an English poet and notable Tory politician of the late Stuart period, who served as Lord Privy Seal and Lord President of the Council. Samuel Wesley is possibly Samuel Wesley (1662-1735) a clergyman of the Church of England, as well as a poet and a writer of controversial prose, and the father of John Wesley and Charles Wesley, founders of Methodism. But more likely is one of hisother sons, Samuel (1690-1739)."
