Michael Maittaire (also Michael) (1668 – 7 September 1747) was a French-born classical scholar and bibliographer in England, and a tutor to Lord Philip Stanhope. He edited an edition of Quintus Curtius Rufus, later owned by Thomas Jefferson. His works included a grammar of English (1712). He was born in France of Huguenot parents, who around the time of the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes moved to England. He obtained a king's scholarship at Westminster School in 1682. Richard Busby, then head-master, made him concentrate on the study of Greek and Latin. On leaving school he went to The Hague, where he was received by the Vaillants, and then to Paris. On returning to England he gained the goodwill of Robert South, at the time a canon of Christ Church, Oxford; it is said that he compiled a list of the Greek words that were wrongly accented in the works of William Sherlock. South made him 'canoneer' student of Christ Church, and he took the degree of M.A. on 23 March 1696, being incorporated M.A. at Cambridge in 1708. In 1695 he was appointed second master of Westminster, but resigned in 1699 and kept a private school, one of the pupils at which was Stephen Martin Leake. Late in life he was Latin tutor to Stanhope, Lord Chesterfield's son. In 1728 he was living in a house in Orange Street, near Holborn, London. Maittaire died on 7 September 1747, aged 79. Over fifty years he had formed a large library, rich in early printed editions. It was sold by auction in London by Cock & Langford, the sale beginning on 21 November 1748 and lasting for forty-four evenings. Maittaire began to publish about 1706. His major works are his Annales Typographici and other writings on the history of printing, and of editions of the classics, especially the series of Latin classics printed in duodecimo by Jacob Tonson and Watts of London from 1713 to 1719. Pope had made Maittaire in the manuscript of the Dunciad an inhabitant of the "Kingdom of Dullness", but the lines were not printed, after a request made for their suppression by Edward Harley, 2nd Earl of Oxford, a patron of Maittaire. Extracts from Maittaire's letters to the Earl of Oxford are printed in John Nichols's Literary Anecdotes, and other letters by him are in George Ballard's collection in the Bodleian Library. In his earliest letters he signs his name 'Michell Mattaire'. (Wikipedia) Sprache: Latin Overall a very good set with only few signs of wear.

        JOURNAL HISTORIQUE DU DERNIER VOYAGE QUE FEU M. DE LA SALE FIT DANS LE GOLFE DE MEXIQUE, POUR TROUVER L'EMBOUCHURE, & LE COURS DE LA RIVIERE DE MISSICIPI [sic], NOMMEE A PRESENT LA RIVIERE DE SAINT LOUIS, QUI TRAVERSE LA LOUISIANE

      Paris, 1713. 12mo. Antique half calf and marbled boards. Ink notations on front endpapers, light scattered foxing. Map is bright and fresh. Very good. One of the premiere accounts of La Salle's tragic final voyage, compiled from the diary of his close subordinate. The party embarked in 1684, ostensibly to establish a French base at the mouth of the Mississippi as headquarters for operations, but as well to push as far as possible into the region in order to gain a foothold against the Spanish. In fact, and via a conscious deceit, the base was established at Espiritu Santo Bay in Texas, where the party spent two years making excursions into the surrounding territory. When expected reinforcements failed to appear, La Salle and his men determined to return to Canada via the Mississippi; however, a member of the expedition assassinated La Salle when they reached the Trinity River, and the company split up. Some of the survivors, including Joutel, pressed on, reaching Canada by way of the Mississippi and Arkansas rivers. Joutel's diary passed to other hands prior to publication, and the present edition, edited by De Michel, is somewhat abridged. It was published to counter the errors in Tonti's DERNIERES DECOUVERTES... (1697). The complete journal was not published until 1878, as part of Margry's compilation. Joutel's JOURNAL is one of the major works of the period on the region, and "of the three narratives of this journey, those of Joutel, Cavelier, and Douay, the first is by far the best" (Francis Parkman). The splendid map, based on Joutel's own observations, is the first map showing the results of La Salle's journeys and provides, for its time, a very accurate delineation of the course of the Mississippi from its northern headwaters to its mouth, as well as that of the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence, complete with a beautiful engraved cartouche of Niagara Falls. A handsome copy.

        A Set of Four Hand-Coloured Tulips.

      Nuremberg 1713 - Four engravings with fine later hand-colouring. Framed and glazed, 64 x 55.5 cm. Magnificent plates from "Hortus Eystettensis", one of the earliest and most famous works in the field. The Hortus Eystettensis is a pictorial record of the flowers grown in the greatest German garden of its time, that of Prince Bishop of Eichstatt, Johann Conrad von Gemmingen. The garden was begun by Joachim Camerarius in 1596 and, after his death in 1598, completed by Basil Besler, a pharmacist from Nuremberg. A visitor, Philipp Hainhofer, in 1611 marvelled at the eight gardens, each containing 'flowers from a different country; they varied in the beds and flowers, especially in the beautiful roses, lilies, tulips.' The Hortus records this variety and beauty. The book is exceptional in every sense; in its variety and range of flowers, in its size, in its fine quality of engraving. It is also one of the earliest records of flowers from a specific, documented garden. Besler was asked to complete the work by Gemmingen in 1606; the huge nature of the task was clear to Besler and he enlisted the help of his younger brother Hieronymus and Ludwig Jungermann, a nephew of Camerarius. Printing the Hortus may have begun as early as 1607. Drawings were made in situ and from specimens sent by the Bishop to Nuremberg; the Bishop reported to Hainhofer that he had boxes of fresh flowers sent every week to Besler at Nuremberg for sketching. A team of at least 10 engravers were employed to translate the drawings to copperplates. The gardens, along with most of the town of Eichstatt, were destroyed by the invading Swedish troops under Herzog Bernhard von Weimar in 1633-4, although they were partially restored by later bishops. Many of the original drawings survive in the University Library, Erlangen.

An attractive map of Oxfordshire, perhaps one of Speed's more decorative county maps. It incorporates the arms of the colleges and those of Elfred, founder of Oxford, into a decorative border. Academic figures flank a globe at the bottom of the map and pinpoint Oxford's location in the world. There is a town plan in the upper right with an alphabetical key identifying the colleges and other buildings of note. The printing by Henry Overton, who took over the concern in 1707 from his father John, indicates this is a reprint of Speed's county maps (with additions) in 1713.

        THE CASE OF THE LORD CONINGSBY'S TWO INFANT DAUGHTERS, WITH RESPECT TO THE BILL NOW PASSING THE HONOURABLE HOUSE OF COMMONS, FOR SALE OF THE ESTATE OF THE LATE EARL OF RANELAGH AT CHELSEA AND CRANBORNE, IN THE COUNTY OF MIDDLESEX AND BERKS [caption title].

      [London? ca. ]. 1713 - Broadsheet, 15 x 11 inches. [1]p., plus printed docket title on verso. Ornamental initial. Dbd. Small folio. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Small portion of inner margin excised, with no loss to text. Mild foxing. Very good. Richard Jones, 3rd Viscount and 1st Earl of Ranelagh (1641-1712), was an Anglo-Irish aristocrat, Irish politician, and Member of Parliament in the English House of Commons (his peerage was Irish, which did not disqualify him) from 1685 to 1703.

Chez Claude Jordan, à Amsterdam [Paris] 1713, 4 parties en Un Vol. in-12 (8x15cm), relié. - First edition illustrated two frontispieces and 12 anonymous figures before the letter (the draw is particularly significant). Cohen cites only the edition of 1744 with 9 figures and ignores this first edition. The original text was published in 1677. Two title pages were linked after the first at Van Buren in The Hague, the title "Adventures of miss of Meyrac, true story"; the second to Claude Jordan address in Amsterdam with the title: "The heroine musketeer true story." Adding that ultimately privilege for 1712 is to Paris. Bound in full morocco glossy red of the late nineteenth signed Hardy. Back with nerves decorated. Triple mentoring net on the boards. Rich inner frieze. Gilt edges. The lower plate, small leather gaps along the supervisory net. Light rubbing copings. nice copy, well established in a host binding. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Première édition illustrée de deux frontispices et de 12 figures anonymes, avant la lettre (le tirage en est particulièrement appréciable). Cohen ne cite que l'édition de 1740 avec 9 figures et ignore cette première édition. L'originale du texte est paru en 1677. Chaque partie est précédée d'un faux-titre. Deux pages de titre ont été reliées à la suite, la première à l'adresse de Van Buren à La Haye, porte le titre "Avantures de mademoiselle de Meyrac, histoire véritable" ; la seconde à l'adresse de Claude Jordan à Amsterdam avec pour titre : "L'héroine mousquetaire, histoire véritable". Ajoutons que le privilège in fine pour 1712 est de Paris. L'exemplaire de la British Library, qui ne contient que 4 figures est à l'adresse de Pierre Witte à Paris. Il n'y a eu certainement qu'un tirage à Paris, mais on y a joint des pages de titre différentes pour les vendre. Nous n'avons trouvé aucun autre exemplaire de cette édition dans les catalogues français. Reliure en plein maroquin rouge glacé de la fin du XIXe signée Hardy. Dos à nerfs orné. Triple filet d'encadrement sur les plats. Riche frise intérieure. Tranches dorées. Au plat inférieur, petits accrocs le long des filets d'encadrement. Très bel exemplaire, d'une parfaite fraîcheur, parfaitement établi dans une reliure de maître. Jean de Préchac, décédé en 1720, fut l'un des auteurs les plus prolifiques de la fin du XVIIe, auteur principalement de nouvelles et romans historiques et d'aventure, comme c'est le cas avec L'héroïne mousquetaire, histoire d'un fille noble du Béarn, qui en se travestissant pour fuir le courroux de son père, trouva sa véritable voix dans le maniement des armes et devint mousquetaire du roi. On notera que le roman met en scène une héroïne dans un rôle d'homme, fait très rare.

        THE CASE OF THE LORD CONINGSBY'S TWO INFANT DAUGHTERS, WITH RESPECT TO THE BILL NOW PASSING THE HONOURABLE HOUSE OF COMMONS, FOR SALE OF THE ESTATE OF THE LATE EARL OF RANELAGH AT CHELSEA AND CRANBORNE, IN THE COUNTY OF MIDDLESEX AND BERKS [caption title]

      [London? ca. 1713].. Broadsheet, 15 x 11 inches. [1]p., plus printed docket title on verso. Ornamental initial. Dbd. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Small portion of inner margin excised, with no loss to text. Mild foxing. Very good. Richard Jones, 3rd Viscount and 1st Earl of Ranelagh (1641- 1712), was an Anglo-Irish aristocrat, Irish politician, and Member of Parliament in the English House of Commons (his peerage was Irish, which did not disqualify him) from 1685 to 1703. In 1702, discrepancies were discovered in his accounts as paymaster-general of the army; his resignation from that position was interpreted as an admission of guilt, and he was expelled from Parliament in 1703 and convicted of "defalcations to the amount of 72,000l" (DNB). The scandalous nature of Ranelagh's life in both political and personal realms led the DNB to note: "Perhaps the only redeeming feature in Ranelagh's character was the unaffected pleasure he took in building and gardening." He helped design and build the structures and gardens of an architecturally celebrated pair of estates in Chelsea and Cranborne Chase, near Windsor.

        The Laws, of Her Majesties Colony of New-York, as they were enacted the Governour, Council and General Assembly, for the time being, in divers sessions, the first of which began April the 9th, Annoq; Dom. 1691

      William Bradford, New York 1713 - (11 x 7 inches). [6],88,151-245 [i.e., 253]pp. Leaves of opening table appear to be cancels, with pages pasted over the first printings, as issued. Early 20th-century pebbled morocco, spine with raised bands in six compartments, lettered in gilt William Bradford's laws of New York: a major early New York imprint, from the press of its first printer. A major early New York imprint from the press of William Bradford, the "pioneering printer of the English middle colonies" (DAB) and first printer of New York. Bradford (1663-1752) originally settled in Pennsylvania, where he began operating a printing press in 1685 and a bookstore in 1688. Controversies within the Quaker community, with Bradford supporting the dissident George Keith, led to the temporary seizure of his types and paper in 1692, and in 1693 he moved to New York. The present documents are among the earliest of official New York imprints. The present example of THE LAWS. is the third collection of New York laws, after the first of 1694 and 1710, and covers legislation passed from 1691 to 1713. Laws here include acts "for quieting and settling the Disorders that have lately happened within this Province" (1691), "for restraining and punishing Privateers and Pyrates" (1693 and 1698), and "against Jesuites and Popish Priests" (1700), as well as numerous acts "for Regulating Slaves" and one for "Baptizing them" (1706). The index reflects the odd pagination in the volume, which skips from page 88 to page 155. This is due in part to the fact that they are a composite of Bradford's various separately issued official publications of New York laws. The two leaves following the titlepage are an index, the present copy being comprised of individually printed pages pasted together to form one double-sided leaf. Evans 1636, 1637, 1638.

[4], 82, [2] pp.. 1713 First edition of the second portion of one of the best-known responses to Anthony Collins's landmark Discourse of Free-Thinking. Bentley here takes up where he left off in the first part of the Remarks (considered a crushing rebuttal of Collins's treatise, and of deism as interpreted in the Discourse), moving on to assess many of the citations and classical references from p. 90 onwards of Collins's work. Writers whose words Bentley feels Collins misrepresented include Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Epicurus, Plutarch, Cato, and Cicero. Recent marbled paper–covered boards, front cover with gilt-stamped leather title-label. Faint crease lines occasionally visible, pages otherwise clean.

Chez jacques Etienne, à Paris 1713, Pet. in-8 (9,5x16,5cm), relié. - First edition, scarce Binding in full burgundy morocco signed XIXth Chambrolle mid-Duru. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, rare. La démonstration de l'existence de Dieu tirée de ses attributs [...] parue en 1718 comme une seconde partie n'est en réalité pas une seconde partie. Extraite des manuscrits de Fénelon, cette oeuvre inachevée est en effet antérieure à la Demonstration de l'existence de Dieu tirée de la connoissance de la nature, elle ne repose que sur des fragments d'un projet. En juxtaposant ultérieurement les deux parties, les éditeurs publient en fait deux oeuvres différentes, écrites à des périodes différentes. Reliure en plein maroquin bordeaux glacé fin XIXe signée Chambrolle-Duru. Dos à nerfs janséniste. Titre et date dorés. Riche frise intérieure. Tranches dorées. infimes traces de frottements au mors supérieur. très bel exemplaire, parfaitement établi. La Démonstration est à la fois une oeuvre philosophique et une oeuvre théologique. Fénelon s'adresse à des esprits forts, ou à des esprits chrétiens dont la foi reposerait sur la raison ; il emprunte ainsi son argumentation à une apologétique de type cartésien. L'idée maîtresse étant que le spectacle de la nature donne à voir l'activité du créateur, fénelon mettant en parallèle l'ordre et l'harmonie du monde à celui de l'action divine, réenchantant ainsi la vision mécaniciste du corps et de l'âme. En outre faute d'une cause commune à l'âme, aux animaux, à l'univers même, l'homme serait ainsi directement confronté à l'existence divine.

        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 - 117,[2]; 80;43,[1],23pp. Quarto. All four bound together in modern half red morocco and paper boards, spine gilt. Contemporary inked 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's 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 English 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. DAVENPORT 100, 101. SABIN 96539.

        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.. Four items bound in one volume. 117,[2]; 80; 43,[1]; 23pp. Quarto. Modern half red morocco and paper 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. DAVENPORT 100, 101. SABIN 96539.

A fourth volume appeared in 1722 in the second edition. Bound in full calf Used era. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition pour les deux premiers tomes, le troisième tome se trouve en édition originale. L'illustration comprend 3 vignettes de titres répétées aux armes, 2 bandeaux de titre pour l'épitre et la préface, et 2 lettrines ; 6 bandeaux de titres et lettrines pour le texte ; le tout gravé par Audran. Les huit tableaux dépliants de Paris sont manquant. Pages de titre en rouge et noir. Le premier volume du Traité de la police parait en 1707, le volume 2 en 1710, le volume 3 en 1719, et un quatrième volume (De la voirie), rédigé par le secrétaire de Delamare, paraîtra à titre posthume en 1738. Reliure en plein veau usagé d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre et de tomaison en maroquin brun. 3 premiers caissons des deux premiers tomes absents, idem pour le premier caisson du tome III. Coiffes de queue arrachées. Pièces de titre et de tomaison manquantes aux 2 premiers tomes. Intérieur d'une belle fraîcheur. Le traité de la police, tout en étant secondairement une histoire des règlements dans l'Antiquité et de l'exercice de la police contient l'ensemble des ordonnances et des règles dans tous les domaines, c'est à dire tout ce qui se rapporte au droit public (nourriture, commerce, des spectacles, des prisons...) pour la ville de Paris. Le premier tome traite également des divers corps de la police et de son administration. C'est en 1667 que Lamoignon, premier Président du Parlement de Paris, suggéra l'idée à Nicolas Delamare, d'écrire un ouvrage décrivant les méthodes de la police dans une grande ville ; les archives et la riche bibliothèque de Colbert lui furent ouvertes à cette fin. « Cet ouvrage n'est pas, dit l'auteur, un simple recueil d'ordonnances, comme je me l'étais d'abord proposé ; ce sont des dissertations sur toutes les matières de police ; c'est une histoire de toutes les lois et de tous les règlements depuis l'établissement de la plus ancienne des républiques jusques à présent ». Dès les premières pages de son Traité, Delamare donnait une définition large de la police, comme un « art de procurer une vie commode et tranquille ». Le plan original de Delamare prévoyait 12 livres, il n'en parut que 6. Le premier livre traite "De la police en général et de ses magistrats et officiers", le second "de la religion", le troisième "des moeurs", le quatrième "de la santé",  et le cinquième "des vivres".
