      Arnoul Seneuze et Jean-Raoul Morel 1714 - Contemporary full calf, 12mo, [6] leaves, pp. 298. Illustrated with 8 engravings. 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.

        THE WORKS OF MONSIEUR DE MOLIERE. IN SIX VOLUMES.

      London: Printed for Bernard Lintott, 1714. - [30],207,[3];[2],210,[2];[4],288;[4],288;[4],21 9,[1];268pp. Six volumes bound in three. 12mo. Late 19th century three-quarter gilt red morocco and marbled boards, a.e.g. Engraved frontispiece portrait by Vertue after the painting by Pignard. Some foxing and uniform tanning, thin paper flaw along outer margin of B6 in first volume (with no loss), lower portion of final general title backed at an early point, with no loss of letterpress, and a bit of soiling to lower margins of following three leaves, but a good set, attractively bound, with the bookplates of Edward and Andrew W. Arnold. The first collected edition of Moliere in English, translated (with the exception of two of the plays), with a prefatory Life, by John Ozell, a prolific translator of the times who found his capacity for such work derided by Pope and Swift. Moliere was of considerable influence on the English stage via adaptations and derivatives by greater and lesser talents, and even if the translations printed here were considered less than graceful by some, they were widely read. At the end of his Dedication to the Earl of Dorset and Middlesex, Ozell notes "that the Misanthrope and Malade Imaginaire . are translated by other Persons, whose Names I forbear to mention, since they have thought fit to conceal themselves."

        The Publick Spirit of the Whigs: Set forth in their Generous Encouragement of the Author of the Crisis: with some Observations on the Seasonableness, Candor, Erudition, and Style of that Treatise

      London: Printed for John Morphew, 1714 - The scarce first issue of one of Swift's most effective political pamphlets, written on behalf of the government against Steele's The Crisis. Swift's aspersions on the Scottish peers made the Lords seek special means to suppress his work, and it was reprinted with the offending passages removed. His remarks here make it clear why the suppression was sought: in reply to Steele's note that the Kingdom of Scotland had many nobles, Swift chips in: "They had indeed; and to that we owe one of the great and necessary Evils of the Union upon the Foot it now stands. Their Nobility is indeed so numerous, that the whole Revenues of their Country would be hardly able to maintain them according to the Dignity of their Titles; and what is infinitely worse, they are never likely to be Extinct till the last Period of all Things . I could Point out some with great Titles, who affected to appear very vigorous for Dissolving the Union, though their whole Revenues before that Period would have ill maintained a Welch Justice of the Peace; and have since gathered more Money than ever any Scotchmen, who had not travell'd, could form an Idea of." Very scarce on the market First edition, first issue. 4to. [2], 45 pp. Modern marbled boards. Title somewhat spotted and with wormhole through first few leaves, slight waterstaining in blank margins to text; otherwise very good. Teerink 596; Rothschild 2054 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Description d'une sphere mouvante par le moyen d'une pendule, d'un globe monté d'une façon particuliere, & d'un nouveau planisphere pour les distances & grosseurs des planetes. Le tout selon l'hypothese de Copernic. Expliquée & demontrée. Paris, Jacques Quillau, 1714. 8vo. With 2 engraved illustration plates and 2 engraved plates with movable parts. Contemporary sprinkled calf, gold-tooled spine.

      De La Lande, p. 361; Cat. Weil 25, no. 167 (lacking 1 moveable plate); cf. Houzeau-Lancaster 7531 (Premontval's biography). First and only edition of descriptions and illustrations of 4 ingenious and unusual astronomical instruments, all designed and operating according to the Copernican system. The first is one of the earliest examples of a clockwork model of the Copernican solar system. Pigeon notes that the terrestrial globe in the complete planetary system is too small to conveniently demonstrate the earth's movements, so he also built a separate larger one, described and illustrated in the next part of the book. Next comes Pigeon's planisphere, not merely illustrated but included in the book in working form, with a turning dial. It is designed to calculate the distances of the various planets. Finally a second working instrument is included: an orthographic equatorial projection of the globe with a movable pointer to indicate the position of the sun. In very good condition. The hinges are cracked and there is minor damage to the spine and the surface of the leather, but the binding remains structurally good.

        M. Frobichers Scheeps 'Togt, Gedaan om de Noord, ter Ontdekking van een Straat na Cataya en China.

      1714 - Leiden, c.1714. Original colour. Map within separately-printed frame-like border, total printed area 220 x 290mm. Martin Frobisher's map of his route across the North Atlantic to Greenland in 1576, with the straits he discovered there. However it is based on his belief in the existance of the mythical island of 'Frisland', causing him to mistake Greenland for his true location on Baffin Island in Canada. Frobisher (1535-94) intended to find the the North West Passage: he landed on Greenland but thought it to be the non-existent Frisland shown on his charts. When he sailed on and touched land again he believed he had arrived in Greenland when in fact he was at what is now Frobisher Bay on Baffin Island in the Canadian Arctic. Entering the bay he believed he had discovered a strait on Greenland, and even two more voyages (1577 & 1578) did nothing to make him doubt himself. Two more voyages (1577 & 1578) did nothing to make him doubt himself. Over a century later this map still shows Frobisher's Strait on Greenland, although Frisland had been consigned to history.

A scarce map of Nottinghashire, from Overton's county atlas, 'England Fully Described in a Compleatt Sett of Mapps of ye County's of England and Wales'. It is unusual in that the map takes up less than half the area: a large plan of Nottingham fills the top left half of the sheet, not based on that by Speed but apparently a new survey. Under that is the title cartouche and a text box with a few statistics and sundry information, ending 'the most noted rivers are the Trent and Erwash, its cheif Comõdities the best Liquorice, Plaster like that of Paris, Malt'.
