      . Amsterdam, R. and G. Wetstein, J. Oosterwyk and H. van de Gaete, 1714. Folio (33.3 x 21.1 cm). Allegorical frontispiece (by Picart, dated 1711), title page (in red and black ink), engraved portrait of de Bruyn (by G. Kneller), [vi], 472, [xii] pp., and 260 numbered engraved plates (many double, folded), two large maps, and 34 large text engravings, not numbered, including, portraits, views, etc. Contemporary blind ruled and embossed vellum. Spine with six raised bands, title written in ink, in a neat contemporary hand.* First edition, second issue of one of the most richly illustrated voyages through Russia, Persia and adjacent countries and territories. This voyage was made by the Dutch painter Cornelis de Bruin (as on title page), or de Bruyn (as in the portrait) (1652-1727). He went by sea from Amsterdam along the coast of Norway to Archangel above the polar circle, and travelled by river and overland southwards through Russia and the Caspian Sea, from there over land to Persia, the Gulf and by ship again onward to Batavia (now Jakarta), back to Persia, and across the Mediterranean homewards. It is an extensive work important to naval and travel history, and includes beautiful large panoramic views of, for instance, Archangel, Moscow, and "Spahan" (= Isfahan), some are impressively long when unfolded. Most are as stated in the title, from drawings made on the spot by de Bruin himself. The work was dedicated to Anton Ulrich, Duke of Brunswyk and Lunenburg. This edition is identical to the 1711 edition published for the author by Willem and David Goerree. Two book plates of former private owners on front paste-down, one small previous owner's stamp on first blank, old Japanese paper reinforcements to the outer edge of the front flyleaf and first blank, tiny weak bookseller's stamp in title page lower margin, a pencil annotation below the portrait of De Bruin, otherwise clean. In all an excellent copy in contemporary binding. The plates in a strong impression. Henze I, 378; Tiele 207, 209..

Some very minor browning and foxing, frontispiece slightly protruding, extremities worn, boards rubbed. From the library of René Basset with his name handwritten on the first free endpaper. The spine richly gilt, divided in six compartments by 5 raised bands with the titles in the second compartment. An early detailed description of the Kingdom of Issini on the western coast of Africa. Godefroy Loyer (1660-1715), a Frenchman, was the Apostolic Prefect of the Missions of Preaching Friars to the coasts of Guinea. Loyer was one of the early Europeans to explore this region and he spent several years there. As a missionary living among local people and learning their language, he gained an in-depth understanding of the culture, politics and economy of the local society. An interesting and valuable account of West Africa before it was completely transformed by slavery and colonialism. This early account is of particular importance as Loyer acted as an anthropologist avant la lettre by describing the indigenous people of this part of Africa after careful observations. Although a priest he had a keen eye for their civilizations, cultures and habits, sometimes describing events awestricken, other times with admiration. In this he differs greatly from other early accounts, however interestingly they may be, where often economic aspects prevail. The first few pages deal with Martinique and Grenada, where he was sent to before he went to West Africa. Chadenat 3810, Joucla, p. 163; Gay 2858 bis (for the 2nd edition of 1723).

        Le jeu des Eschets

      Paris: Chez Claude Robustel, 1714 343 pages. Duodecimo (5 ½” x 3 ¼”). Bound in original leather with marbled end papers, decorative gilt stamping to spine with red label, raised spine bands. Same as the Paris 1713 edition with cancel title and privilege. Originally written in 1619 in Italian. [Biblioteca van Der Niemeijeriana: 403] Gioachino Greco, also known as Il Calabrese, was born around 1600 in Celico, which near Cosenza in Calabria. Calabria had already produced such players as Leonardo di Bono and Michele di Mauro. From his writing it's apparent the he wasn't educated and likely came from a lower class family. Already in 1619, Greco started keeping a notebook of tactics and particularly clever games and he took up the custom of giving copies of his manuscripts to his wealthy patrons. In Rome Monsignor Corsino della casa Minutoli Tegrini, Cardinal Savelli and Monsignor Francisco Buoncompagni all received copies (of which there are extant copies, dated 1620 in the Corsiniana library in Rome, under the title, Trattato del nobilissimo gioco de scacchi). Despite his popularity in Rome, in 1621 Greco took off to test himself against the rest of Europe leaving this paper trail as he went. In 1621 he left a fine copy of his manuscripts with Duke Enrico of Lorraine in Nancy. He traveled to Paris where he played Arnauld (Isaac) de Corbeville, Enrico di Savoia (the Marquis of St. Sorlin and the Duke of Nemours and Geneva) and others. He had apparently been quite successful because in traveling from Paris to England he was waylaid by robbers who divested him of 5,000 scudi, a princely sum. Finally making it to London, he beat all the best players. Sir Francis Godolphin and Nicholas Mountstephen were given copies of his manuscripts. While in London, Greco developed an idea to record entire games, rather than positions, for study and inclusion in his manuscripts. He returned to Paris in 1624 where he rewrote his manuscript collection to reflect his new ideas. He then went to Spain and played at the court of Philip IV. There he beat his mentor and the strongest player of the time (other than himself), don Mariano Morano. He finally returned to Italy where he was enticed to traveling to the New Indies, the Americas, by a Spanish nobleman. He seemingly contracted some disease there and died around 1630 (possibly 1634) at the young age of 30 (34). He generously left all the money he earned at chess to the Jesuits. Gioachino Greco stood head and shoulders above his contemporaries, a feat seldom duplicated. David Hooper, in The Oxford Companion to Chess, states that Greco probably made up the games in his manuscripts. The question of whether he actually played the games or invented them is rather moot since if he invented them, he was perfectly capable of playing them. Condition: First free front end paper with old owner's inscription dated 1813 and half clipped, occasional marginalia through out in neat hand, spine ends chipped, extremities, spine and boards worn, back heal corner damaged, still has the original ribbon book mark. Other wise a good copy.. Full-Leather. Good. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.

        Bassin de Neptune.

      1714 - F. Delamonce Illustrated plate of fountain at Versailles from Des Jardens de Versailles Paris, 1714 Hand-colored copperplate engraving (later color) 30 ½" x 37" framed Louis XIV (1638-1715), the Sun King of France, had grown up during a civil war between rival factions of aristocrats, known as the Fronde, and wanted a site where he could control the French government by absolute rule. Louis settled on the royal hunting lodge at Versailles, which had been acquired by Louis XIII in 1632, and over the following decades expanded it into the largest palace and grounds in the world. It was Louis XIV's hope to create a center for the royal court at Versailles. Beginning in 1669, the architect, Louis Le Vau (1612-1670), began a detailed renovation of the château. The Château of Versailles, outside of Paris, was converted into a spectacular royal palace in a series of four major and distinct building campaigns. By the end of the third building campaign, the Château had taken on most of the appearance that it retains to this day, except for the Royal Chapel in the last decade of the reign. Louis XIV officially moved to Versailles, along with the royal court, on May 6, 1682. Louis had several reasons for creating such a symbol of extravagant opulence and stately grandeur, and for shifting the seat of the monarch. By moving the royal court and the seat of the French government, Louis XIV hoped to gain greater control of the government from the nobility. All the power of France emanated from this centre: there were government offices here, as well as the homes of thousands of courtiers and all the attendant functionaries of court. By requiring that nobles of a certain rank and position spend time each year at Versailles, Louis prevented them from developing their own regional power and kept them from countering his efforts to centralize the French government in an absolute monarchy. Thus, many noblemen had to either to give up all influence, or to depend entirely on the king for grants and subsidies. Instead of exercising power and potentially creating trouble, the nobles vied for the honor of dining at the king’s table or the privilege of carrying a candlestick as the king retired to his bedroom. Versailles also served as a dazzling and awe-inspiring setting for state affairs and for the reception of foreign dignitaries, where the attention was not shared with the city of Paris, but was assumed solely by the king. Court life centered on magnificence; courtiers lived lives of expensive luxury, dressed with suitable magnificence and constantly attended balls, dinners, performances and celebrations. This view is from a series of grand views which showcase the gardens of Versailles, the grounds of which are the largest formal gardens ever created, with its extensive fountains and canals. The gardens at Versailles were designed by the landscape architect André Le Nôtre (1673-1700). Le Nôtre modified the original gardens by expanding them and giving them a sense of openness and larger scale. The plan was centered by the central axis of the Grand Canal (le Canal), an ornamental body of water covering 105 acres. The gardens are centered on the south front of the palace, which is set on a terrace, giving the palace a sweeping view of the gardens. The Fountain of Latona is located at the foot of the steps, and tells a story taken from Ovid’s poem Metamorphoses, which was considered an allegory of the Fronde, the French civil war (1646-53) that occurred when Louis XIV was a child.

By Esdras Barnivelt, Apoth. The Second Edition. To which are added commendatory Copies of Verses, by the most Eminent Political Wits of the Age." "Written in 1715 by Pope (using the pseudonym Esdras Barnivelt), this humorous interpretation of The Rape of the Lock serves as a warning to critics not to take the poem too seriously. In the Key Pope exposes his own poem as a dangerous political allegory (Belinda represents Great Britain, the Lock represents the Barrier Treaty.). The Key also shows Pope trying to placate Sir George Brown (the original for Sir Plume, Sir George was none too happy with the role he played in the poem) by indicating there were at least two possible originals for Sir Plume.
