Loyer, Godefroy
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 381 … [Click Below for Full Description]

F. Delamonce
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 cou … [Click Below for Full Description]

The Free-Holder, or political essays. London: printed for D. Midwinter and J. Tonson, 1716. 12mo (6 3/8 x 3 7/8 inches). Half-title. First edition in book form. CBEL II, 1101; cf. Rothschild I, 10 (8vo issue). 3 works in four volumes. Uniform contemporary black morocco, covers elaborately panelled in gilt with floral cornerpieces, spines in six compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second compartment, the others elaborately tooled in gilt, marbled endpapers (one volume with hinge repaired). Provenance: Anne White (inscription dated 1772 in each volume). A very fine series in a very unusual contemporary binding. The use of morocco and the elaborate tooling suggest that, originally, these works were either bound for a very high status original owner, or that they were intended for presentation. This is counteracted by the knowledge that these works were also available in an octavo format that was more expensive. The likely explanation is that they originally formed part of a gentleman's (or ladies) personal travelling library. In any event, all three works offer a contemporary light on British political events of the day: a fascinating glimpse of an important period in modern history.

Adrian Reland ( 1667-1718), the celebrated Dutch Orientalist, was professor of Oriental languages and ecclesiastical antiquities at the University of Utrecht. His description of Palestine is remarkable work for its time, especially considering the fact that his description of the city is not based on his travels but collected from accounts of other authors. In the preface Relandus declares to have mistrusted all the existing cartographical material, and to have reconfigured Palestine’s topography on the bases of the printed sources, which included the Rabbinical and Arabic ones. He draws special attention to his map of distances to the formation of which the whole book II is devoted: being a careful reconstruction of interrelated and Arabic ones.

She was a famous London beauty of humble origins, who, after her marriage to William Shore, a mercer, was annulled, became notorious as the mistress of Edward IV and others. She was charged with conspiracy against the protectionist government of Richard III and imprisoned at Ludgate, but only after having performed mandatory public penance for her promiscuous behavior. 'Mistress Shore' is mentioned only a few times in Shakespeare's Richard III as King Edwards's whore, Lord Hasting's whore, just about anyone's whore.

In the upper corner is a lovely vignette of Niagara Falls. Joutel's journal is one of the best accounts of La Salle's ill-fated expedition to establish a settlement at the mouth of the Mississippi River and the short-lived colony in Texas which the party used for two years as a base for further exploration.

Blackmore, Richard
London: Printed for J. Tonson at Shakespear's-Head, over against Catherine-Street in the Strand, 1714. The fourth edition, revised, to which is added an Index explaining the names of countries, cities, rivers, &c. (24),341,(15)pp followed by 4pp publisher's catalogue. Bound to style in full calf tooled in a Cambridge design. Spine in five compartments with raised bands; red leather lettering label, gilt. Marbled endpapers. The title page is in the first state (no priority) without mention of Knapton and the other printers. Text block lightly age-toned, with occasional light foxing, else this is a very good copy in a fine binding. 'Prince Arthur' is one of the earliest of the Arthurian revivals. During the Commonwealth and thereafter stories of Kings and Queens were out of vogue. Even Malory's opus went unprinted for nearly 200 years, from 1634 until 1816. This edition of Prince Arthur is the fourth and last, and the first in small format. First published in 1695, it was instantly popular, and went through three editions by 1696. See Lowndes 211. ESTC T74304. Very good.

Pages clean and wide margined, with an occasional spot or marginal dampstain. Bound in full period paneled calf with red morocco spine label. Covers lightly scuffed, and wear to edges. Hinges starting. Cave (1637-1713) was chaplain to Charles II and a patristic scholar. His works "rank undoubtedly among those which have affected the progress of Church-history. His smaller works greatly tended to extend an acquaintance with Christian Antiquity; his Lives of the Apostles and Primitive Fathers, which may be regarded as an Ecclesiastical history of the first four centuries, is to this very day the most learned work of the kind which has been written in our own language; and his Historia Literaria is still the best and most convenient complete work on the literary history of the Church." Many of his works contain a wealth of legendary material, culled from a wide variety of sources, which is not readily available elsewhere. Dowling, J.G.

[Rotherham, John]:
[London? 1714].. Small folio broadsheet. [1]p. plus printed docket title on verso. Dbd. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Mild foxing. Very good. A petition to Parliament by John Rotherham, charging that massive fraud has been committed in drawbacks on tobacco imports. Rotherham, a long-time tobacco trader, states that a full quarter of the year's tobacco was falsely marked as damaged by traders in order to avoid paying duties. He recommends that to prevent this fraud, all tobacco marked damaged should be destroyed. He also recommends that a current bill for "Lessening the Draw- back on Tobacco carry'd into Ireland" be extended to include tobacco arriving in Britain and requests a "Recompense suitable to his Service." The document is among the earliest examples of lobbying literature, which first began proliferating during the major changes in British government in the mid-1710s.
