BESLER, Basil (1561-1629)
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.

(Fleetwood, William, attrib.)
London: Sam. Buckley, 1713. Early Edition. 8vo. 128pp. Bound to style in quarter leather; maroon lettering piece, gilt; marbled paper boards. Woodcut vignette on the title and another above the colophon, Woodcut chapter heading and initial at the beginning of the Life. St Winifred, or St. Gwenfrewy, Abbess of Trefynnon and of Gwythenn,(d. 600 AD), was honored from early times in Wales as a saint. In 1136 her relics were translated to her shrine at the Benedictine Monastery in Shrewsbury. Two years later, her Life was written in Latin by Robert, Prior of Shrewsbury (d. 1167). Robert's Life was translated by 'J.F.' (probably John Falconer) in 1635, republished in 1712. Bishop William Fleetwood thought the translation so poor that he published this translation the following year, hence the statement 'Second Edition' on the title page. The removal of St. Winifred's relics to Shrewsbury was the basis for the first of the Brother Cadfael tales by Edith Pargeter, 'Morbid Taste for Bones'. Some soil to the beginning and ending pages, old library stamp on the verso of the title, else a very good copy in a fine binding of period design. ESTC T73725. Very good.

WARD, Edward (1667-1731)
London: Printed: And Sold by J. Morphew near Stationer's-Hall M DCC XIII, 1713. Full Calf. Near Fine. The eighth, and best, edition, with large additions. 8vo; [16], vi, 224pp, plus 8 full-page copper-engraved plates, including the frontispiece. Bound in contemporary full paneled calf with a wonderful patina, the spine rebacked very skillfully to style; modern red morocco label lettered in gilt. As collectible a copy as one could hope to encounter, the plates in a particularly well-preserved state. Originally published, in 1703, as ’The secret history of the Calves-Head.' ESTC citation no. T147726. The Calf's-Head-Club, whether real or legendary, was a profane Whig society established to deride the memory of Charles I. The dishes served at its chief meeting, held each 30 January, the anniversary of the king's execution, included a cod's head, to represent Charles Stuart; a pike, representing tyranny; a boar's head, symbolic of the king preying on his subjects; and calves' heads , to stand for Charles and his supporters. On the table an ax held the place of honor. After the banquet a copy of the Eikon Basilike was burnt, and a toast was made "To those worthy patriots who killed the tyrant." During the Restoration, the club met secretly. The first mention of it appears in a tract reprinted in the Harleian Miscellany, entitled "The Secret History of the Calves Head Club."& & & &

Exquemelin (Esquemeling, Exquemeling, or Oexmelin), Alexandre Olivier (c1645-1707)
Paris: Chez les T'Serstevens, 1713 2 volumes: [i-x]+448+[16] pages with illustrations, 2 folding maps and index; [iv]+285+[16] pages with illustrations, folding map and index. Duodecimo (6 1/2" x 4 1/4") bound early calf with labeled spines. From the Society of Writers to the Signet. (European Americana 713/77) (this edition not in Sabin) Early French edition. Rare French edition of one of the most famous books of the period, Exquemelin's account of the adventures, life, morals and customs of the pirates roaming the seas, together with a full description of the Caribbean where they mainly operated. The French edition was, just like the Dutch edition directly based on the original manuscript, and was adapted by Thomas de Frontigniers. Alexandre Olivier Exquemelin called Oexmelin by the French, was a chemist of French Protestant origin who spent several years with the pirates as a ship's surgeon. He took part in their daring exploits, like the expeditions of the notorious English buccaneer Henry Morgan (called John in the book) including his raid on Maracaibo in 1669, or a year later his attack on Panama. The first edition of Exquemelin's eye witness account was published in Dutch in Amsterdam by Jan ten Hoorn in 1678, an edition so rare that it long escaped bibliographers. Exquemelin, who once before, in 1672, had shortly been in Amsterdam, returned there in 1677 to take the 'chirurgijn' exams he sorely needed to exercise this profession at Jamaica, where he had settled, and in 1679 he made his last 'proof'. Meanwhile he also offered his manuscript to the publisher's Ten Ho … [Click Below for Full Description]

Padua: 1713. 1 full page plus 2 folding copper plate engravings. 184pp. 4to, contemporary vellum; some chipping on the spine, lightly rubbed, bumped at the corners, faint damp-stain in the gutter, old library perforated stamp on recto of title page covered by pasted down old inked signature tag on verso. Padova: Manfre, 1713 Vallisnieri was a man of wide scientific interests, making fundamental contributions to embryology, parasitology, geology and comparative anatomy. His second work, in fact, is an atlas of the dissected brain of an ox. "In comparison with contemporary scientific thought, Vallisnieri's work has a very modern character. Following...the way opened by Galileo...and Francis Bacon...he rejected scholastic knowledge and trusted solely in direct observation and experiments". He considered man to be related to animals and his remarkable ideas on this subject were forerunners of evolutionary concepts. Very good. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

[Jones, Richard, Viscount and Earl of Ranelagh]:
[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. In the present leaflet, advocates of Ranelagh's two granddaughters, Margaret and Frances Coningsby, petition Parliament to ensure that, if any property remain from Ranelagh's estates after being sold to pay off his substantial debts, it be given to them, as per his wish. A scarce and early example of lobbying literature, which first began proliferating during the major changes in British government in the mid-1710s.

Nieremberg y Otin Juan Eusebio
Presso Niccolò Pezzana, In Venezia, 1713. In-16° (155x80mm), pp. 311, (1), legatura coeva p. pergamena liscia rigida. Fregio tipografico al frontespizio. Iniziali, testatine e finalini ornati. Sparsi aloni. Buon esemplare complessivo. Una delle prime traduzioni italiane (dovuta ad un anonimo gesuita settecentesco) della Diferencia entre lo temporal y eterno, l'opera più nota del Nieremberg, ricca di ingenui riferimenti ad esempi, fatti, aneddoti storicamente inconsistenti, che pure erano ritenuti per verità (Alfredo Giannini, in Enciclopedia Italiana, XXIV, 805). Il libro consiste in una lunga e spesso immaginifica disquisizione teologico-filosofica sulle categorie della temporalità e dell'eternità alla luce della dottrina cristiana. Il problema del tempo è ancora considerato alla luce del concetto lineare-progressivo, e relativo ad una prospettiva escatologica, del concetto di temporalità, secondo la linea cui, da Agostino in poi, fu improntato nei secoli il pensiero cristiano in tale materia. Il Nieremberg y Otin (Madrid, 1595- ivi, 1658), fecondo scrittore religioso in latino e in castigliano, nato da famiglia di cattolici tedeschi giunti in Spagna al servizio di Donna Isabella, moglie di Carlo V, studiò a Madrid, Alcalà de Henares e Salamanca leggi e sacri canoni ed entrò a far parte dei Gesuiti nel 1614.

BESLER, Basil (1561-1629)
Eichstatt, 1713. Hand-coloured engraving. 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.

Kolorierter Kupferstich nach Basilius Besler aus dem "Hortus Eystettensis" 1713. 48x39 cm. - Johann Konrad von Gemmingen (1561 - 1612), seit 1594 Fürstbischof von Eichstätt, ließ auf seiner Residenz, der Willibaldsburg, durch den Nürnberger Apotheker Basilis Besler (1651 - 1629) die Gärten zu einem großen botanischen Garten ausbauen und erweitern. 1606 beauftragte der kunstliebende Fürst ihn darüber hinaus damit, die Pflanzen des Gartens in einem Buch abzubilden und zu veröffentlichen. So entstand eines der bekanntesten Werke der botanischen Literatur, der berühmte "Hortus Eystettensis". In diesem Prachtwerk der Buchillustration sind die fast 1100 Pflanzenarten auf 367 Kupfertafeln festgehalten. Die prächtige Gartenanlage wurde im Dreißigjährigen Krieg schwer beschädigt und Ende des 17. Jahrhunderts aufgegeben.Mit handschriftlich in Tinte ausgeführter Nummerierung oben rechts, Text von der Rückseite schwach durchscheinend, kleine Flecken im Randbereich.

Joutel, Henri:
Paris: Chez Estienne Robinot..., 1713.. xxxiv,386pp. Modern red morocco, raised bands, a.e.g., gilt inner dentelles. Bit tanned. A very good copy. Lacks the folding map. 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).

JOUTEL, Henri (ca. 1640-1735)
Paris: Estienne Robinot, 1713. 12mo., (6 4/8 x 3 6/8 inches). Large folding engraved map of the eastern seaboard, Caribbean, and Central America (creased, one or two small holes, and unevenly browned), woodcut head- and tail-pieces. Contemporary French mottled calf, smooth spine in seven gilt decorated compartments (a bit scuffed at the head of the spine, front hinge just starting). First edition of the most accurate account of La Salle's last expedition and of his death at the hands of his own men, prepared from Joutel's manuscript journals by one Jean de Michel, who had been assigned the task of putting Joutel's account in order by the bookseller Estienne Robinot, commissioned by Joutel (after 15 years of hesitation) to publish the journals, in order to refute the many errors in H. de Tonti's "Dernieres decouvertes dans l'Amerique Septentrionale de M. de la Sale" (1697). A veteran of the French army, Joutel had joined La Salle as his aide in 1684, inspired by the explorer's plan to found a colony at the as yet undiscovered mouth of the Mississippi. Royal approval of the project, whose real motivation was to establish a French foothold close to Spanish territory, was granted in 1684, and the expedition of four ships set sail. Waylaid by storms and Spanish corsairs, the vessels overshot the Mississippi and landed on the coast of Texas at Matagorda Bay, where a colony was founded. La Salle made several attempts to find the Mississippi, during which expeditions Joutel was often left in charge of mutinous camps of colonists. When promised reinforcements failed to appear, La … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Treaties of Utrecht]:
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 ot … [Click Below for Full Description]
