Greco, Giaccino (1600-1634)
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Joutel, Henri:
London: Printed for A. Bell, et al, 1714.. [2],xxi,[9],205,[5]pp. plus folding map. Contemporary paneled calf, expertly rebacked with original backstrip preserved. Armorial bookplate. Map clean and bright. Fine. The first translation into English of the version of Joutel's narrative edited by De Michel, originally published in Paris the previous year, including the account of La Salle's Texas colony and the return of the remainder of his party to Canada via the Mississippi and Arkansas rivers. Of the three major narratives of the journey, this record, by La Salle's closest subordinate, is the most valuable. The party embarked in 1684, ostensibly to establish a French base at the mouth of the Mississippi as a headquarters for operations, but also to push as far as possible into the region in order to gain a foothold against the Spanish. In fact, through a conscious deceit, the base was established at Espiritu Santo Bay, in Texas, from whence the party spent two years making excursions into the surrounding territory. When promised reinforcements failed to appear, La Salle and his men determined to return to Canada via the Mississippi; however, one of the company assassinated La Salle when they reached the Trinity River, and the party split up. Some of the survivors, including Joutel, pressed on, reaching Canada by way of the Mississippi and Arkansas rivers. Joutel's account is highlighted by the splendid map based on his own observations. This is the first map showing the results of La Salle's journeys, and for its era it gives very accurate delineations o … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hubner, Johann
Hamburg Germany: Johann Hübner, 1714. Very Good 1714, Hamburg Germany. The first ever printing of this seminal classic. The first time that Bible stories were printed specifically for children. Thus it was somewhat "cleansed" before publication. One source I found says that the incest and murder committed by David were altered, among other things. It is four inches by seven inches, and includes 104 plates from engravings, 52 in the Old Testament, and 52 in the New Testament. There are 400 pages of text, plus the eight page introduction. Also, all the plates are on unnumbered pages, for a total of 512 printed pages. The book is in its original calves leather boards and spine, which are still attached but fragile. All pages, including all front and rear endpapers, are present. The last two plates have been repaired at the edges, and several pages inside have edge tears or stains, but they are minimal. There is the expected foxing throughout, and a former owner name and inscription in pencil at the front and a name alone in pencil at the rear. The leather of the boards and spine are rubbed and worn, and partially chipped off at the spine ends. The original black leather spine label with gilt titles is still present. A rare gem, the only copy I have ever seen of the original first printing from 1714. Johann Hübner (1668-1731) was a German geographer born in Türchau bei Zittau on May 15, 1668. He studied Theology, History and Geography in Leipzig from 1689 onwards. From 1691 he was Master, and then from 1694 Rector, of the Gymansium at Merseburg (Martisberg); then from 1711 of … [Click Below for Full Description]

Doppelmayr, Johann Gabriel:
Nuremberg, J.B.Homann,, c. 1714. 49.5 x 58.5 cms. Fine, bright original colour. One small tear, closed without loss, but still a very good example of this map. Doppelmayr’s Celestial Atlas was printed by the Homann Heirs in 1742, but this is a much earlier example of one of J.B. Homann’s plates included in one of his first atlases. This map shows the irregular orbits of Venus and Mercury around the Sun, derived from a hypothesis of Tycho Brahe, for the years 1712 and 1713.

Early folds and early stab holes in left margin, 5-inch lower portion of inner margin excised, with no loss to text. Some toning in upper margin and very light foxing. Very good. In the early 1710s noted mathematicians and friends William Whiston and Humphrey Ditton conducted a historic conversation over the problem of longitude, the means of figuring which had continued to elude sailors and cartographers well into the age of navigation. Whiston, Isaac Newton's successor as Lucasian Professor at Cambridge, mentioned to Ditton that he had been able to hear the guns fired at the Battle of Beachy Head from Cambridge, some ninety miles away. Ditton seized upon the idea of the constant speed of sound as a solution to the longitude problem: firing cannons from fixed points at specified times could allow people within hearing distance to calculate their longitude based on the amount of time it took for the sound to reach them. After seeing the fireworks celebrating the Peace of Utrecht on July 7, 1713, Whiston added the element of light to the proposal, which he and Ditton had since learned was insufficient due to the unreliability of sound travel at sea. By firing a shell from a fixed location timed to explode at 6,440 feet, recorders on distant ships could time the delay between the fireball and the bang and plot their longitude accordingly. An entire fleet of signal boats, Ditton and Whiston imagined, could be anchored at r … [Click Below for Full Description]

Small portion of inner margin excised, with no loss to text. Some foxing. Very good. Henry Pickworth (1673?-1738?) was an English Quaker who, in 1701, challenged the Quaker apostate Francis Bugg to visit New Sleaford, Lincolnshire, and debate him at a public conference. Bugg accepted and prevailed before the judges and clergymen assembled, which led to the public burning of two Quaker books and the publication of numerous pamphlets attacking Bugg by Pickworth. As the controversy died down, however, Pickworth was won over by Bugg and soon began writing against the Quakers and attending the annual Friends' meeting in London to present his protests and testimonies. Eventually, in June 1714, the Lincoln quarterly meeting disowned him. In this rare and historically noted petition, Pickworth lobbies Parliament to grant him another public conference in Lincolnshire, this time against the Quakers of his home meeting. He asks that members of the Lincoln meeting be convened "to one against me, in order to their Defences, from the Charges of Error, Heresy, Uncharity, Falshood, Evasion, Inconsistency, Innovation, Imposition, Infidelity, Hypocrisy, Pride, Railery, Apostasy, Perjury, Idolatry, villainy, Blasphemy, Abomination, Confusion, and worse than Turkish Tyranny in their Church Capacity."

[Paper]:
[London. 1714].. Small folio broadsheet. [1]p. plus printed docket title on verso. Ornamental initial. Dbd. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Trimmed close, with slight loss to the first line of caption title and docket title, minor foxing; overall very good. A scarce petitionary leaflet published on behalf of the English paper making industry. The authors argue that a recent duty on cards has "hindered the Consumption of many thousand Reams of Paper," harming the livelihoods of the approximately 40,000 poor who are maintained by the gathering of rags used to make the paper. A proposed bill adding duties to printed books, they argue, will further exacerbate the problem. The document is among the earliest examples of commercial lobbying literature, which first began proliferating during the major changes in British government in the mid- 1710s.

[Commerce]:
[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. An early British petitionary leaflet calling for greater enforcement of customs laws for imported goods. The author charges that most consignments of foreign goods are now being made to "Naturalized Foreigners and Unfreemen," who are not under the same obligations as Freemen, who state in their oath "not to Colour of Cover the Goods of Aliens." If "no Remedey be given," it is argued, "all Persons will be discouraged from taking their Freedoms, and few will be left of Substance to perform the necessary Service in the Government of [London]." 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. ESTC records four copies, at the British Library, Oxford, National Library of Wales, and California State Library. HANSON 1980.

Occasional pale brown flecks, not significantly affecting the plates. 138 (27 large, 111 half-page) etchings by Francis Barlow. First French Edition. Like the second English edition of 1687, this one combines the "Aesop" plates of the 1666 edition with the "Life of Aesop" plates engraved by Thomas Dudley after Francis Barlow's designs. Barlow was one of the first great English book illustrators. "...he is the first English artist to understand and practice modern interpretive illustration...He made his most significant personal contribution in so drawing and organizing his charcaters that they interact in a dynamic, expressive, and appropriate dramatic way that is at the heart of interpretive illustrations. Barlow's Aesop's fables is one of the chief English illustrated books...that makes him the father of English book illustration,: Hodnett, Francis Barlow. The English editions of Barlow's famous Aesop had a polglott text but Roger used L'Estrange's English text, translated by Roger into French. DG 2.1663. Bodemann 101. Brunet I,96. Cohen/Ricci 350.

Lehenherr, David (Maler) & Fridrich, Iacob Andreas (Stecher).
Augsburg. 1714. J.M.Roth - Augsburgisches Friedens - Gedächtnüs Die „ Augsburger Friedensgemälde „ sind jährlich erscheinende Einblattdrucke mit erläuterndem Text, die an den Westfälischen Frieden von 1648 erinnern sollten. Die Initiative dazu ist von der evangelischen Barfüßergemeinde ausgegangen. Zwischen 1651 und 1789 erschienen insgesamt 138 Blätter mit Kupferstichen unter Beteiligung von 55 Künstlern als Zeichner und Kupferstecher; allein für das Jahr 1653 ist kein Kupferstich, sondern nur ein Gebet gedruckt worden. „ Die Reihe ist somit ein Musterbuch der Augsburger Künstler dieser Zeit". Die Druckplatten wurden von der Barfüßer-Pfarrei aufbewahrt; es folgten immer wieder Nachdrucke, die in Sammelbänden mit eigenem Titel und einer Einführung verlegt wurden. Nach der Herausgabe im Jubiläumsjahr 1748 folgten bis 1789 noch 41 Jahrgänge. Sämtliche Jahrgänge wurden 1790 ein letztes Mal mit neuem Titel versehen herausgegeben. Lit.: Seitz, Augsburg. Anhand der großen Auswahl der gezeigten Blätter, an der teils bedeutende Stecher und Zeichner der Augsburger Schule beteiligt waren, lässt sich die Stielentwicklung des Augsburger Kupferstichs vom Hoch- über den Spätbarock bis zum Rokoko ( etwa ab 1740 ) verfolgen; die letzten Stiche zeigen sogar frühklassizischtischen Stil. - In leuchtenden Farben kolorierter Kupferstich. Sprache: Deutsch Kolorierter Kupferstich. 50 x 30 cm. mit dem Text.
