      Amsterdam, L'Honoré et Chatelain, 1715. 1715 1 vol. in-12° (180 x 140 mm.) de: [4] ff., 227 pp. Titre en rouge et noir, 28 planches gravées dont 7 dépliantes, dont 12 cartes et plans. Cartonnage 18ème siècle recouvert de papier rose, titrage à l'encre brune, exemplaire à toute marges, non-rogné. (Extrémité des marges brunies, pp. 201-208 mal reliées, sinon exemplaire agréable). Nouvelle édition de cet ouvrage d'exploration et de piraterie qui marque le début des expéditions maritimes et commerciales des Français au Sud de l'Amérique, par le détroit de Magellan. (E.O. : 1698, Londres & Paris). François Froger (1676-c.1715), ingénieur et cartographe français, sembarqua en 1695, alors âgé de dix-neuf ans, sur lun des six bateaux (le « Faucon Anglais ») qui composaient lescadre commandée par le capitaine Jean-Baptiste de Gennes. Cette expédition partit de La Rochelle en juin 1695 dans le but de nuire au commerce anglais et détablir une colonie dans la région du Détroit de Magellan. Les navires prirent dabord le chemin de lAfrique, où ils remportèrent une victoire sur les Anglais en semparant du Fort James situé en Sénégambie et de ses richesses, puis de Gennes se dirigea vers lAmérique du Sud faisant escale à Rio de Janeiro. Il entra dans le Détroit de Magellan en février 1696, mais fut arrêtée par les violentes tempêtes courantes dans cette région, qui le força à renoncer à son entreprise de colonisation. Les hommes de lescadre reprirent alors la route de lAtlantique abordant San Salvadore (au Brésil), Cayenne (en Martinique) et différents ports des Antilles, où ils menèrent une vie de corsaire, causant un grand tort au commerce anglais. Ils rentrèrent à La Rochelle en avril 1697.Si l'expédition fut considérée comme une réussite sur le plan commercial, elle le fut encore plus sur le plan scientifique, la relation du sieur Froger comportant notamment la première carte imprimée précise de Rio de Janeiro, ainsi que de nombreuses informations sur la géographie, l'ethnographie et l'histoire naturelle des pays visités. A leur approche de la Terre de Feu (le 11 février 1696), Froger put consigner de précieuses observations des indigènes de Patagonie : « Sur les côtes du détroit, on vit bientôt de grands feux allumés par les sauvages, qu'il était impossible d'approcher, car le vent soufflait en tempête, en soulevant d'énormes vagues. On parvint, cependant, à mouiller plus loin, dans une anse abritée, entourée de bois qui ombrageaient de belles sources, des terres fertiles, couvertes de légumes, de groseilles, de céleris, et où pullulaient les outardes, les canards, les grives, et aussi les renards (). Ceux des navigateurs qui descendirent à terre, purent, pour la première fois, se rapprocher des sauvages qui étaient de couleur olivâtre, avec des chevaux noirs et longs, le visage et une partie du corps peints en blanc, et sans autres vêtements, malgré la rigueur de la température, que quelques peaux sur leurs épaules. Ces sauvages étaient armés d'arcs et de flèches, ayant en pointe, des pierres taillées en langue de serpent ; ils construisaient un canot d'écorce d'arbres, et avaient avec eux quelques petits chiens. Les flibustiers, qui accompagnaient les navigateurs, pour les guider, leur expliquèrent que ces indigènes n'avaient aucune religion, bien qu'ils eussent l'habitude de regarder la lune avec respect ; et que, sans demeures fixes, ils se contentaient d'abris momentanés faits de terre et de branchages ». Les détails sur le commerce triangulaire sont également très intéressants. Hill considère que louvrage est particulièrement estimable pour ses sujets dhistoire naturelle et la qualité des cartes de Froger. Borba de Moraes remarque quant à lui les descriptions du Brésil : The maps are good and the views of cities and ports very accurate. The book is written in a simple and very factual state, making interesting reading. The part about Brazil is excellent. He describes Rio and Bahia vividly and gives a most remarkable commentary on the Jesuit convent in Bahia... Seven of the plates are of Brazilian subjects (flora, fauna, maps, and two folding views of Rio and Bahia). Ces réflexions, écrites dans style simple et vif, sont complétées par des gravures tirées de dessins de sa main, qui firent le succès de l'ouvrage. Lillustration comporte 14 planches (dont 5 dethnologie concernant par exemple le commerce et le traitement des esclaves noirs par les Portugais, 4 de botanique, - représentant la « Poire de Mapou » ou encore un « Fruit inconnu trouvé dans l'Isle grande au Brésil », et 5 de zoologie : gravures de poissons, doiseaux ou de rongeur) ; 2 larges vues panoramiques détaillées et légendées de St Sébastien et St Salvador ; 12 cartes et plans pour la plupart repliés, donnant : la rivière de Gambie, l'Isle de Gorée, le fort St Jacques, lentrée de la rivière Ianeyro, le Detroit de Magellan, la « Baye Françoise » et lembouchure de la rivière de Gennes, le Port Famine au Detroit de Magellan, le Port Galant, la Baye de tous les Saints, le gouvernement de Cayenne, puis la ville et le fort de Cayenne, et pour finir, le débouquement des Antilles par lîle de St. Thomas. Ouvrage captivant et richement illustré de cette première relation française d'un voyage au détroit de Magellan, comportant la première carte imprimée précise de Rio de Janeiro. 1 vol. 12mo. 18th century paperboard. New edition of this travel account, which was frequently reissued. François Froger (1676-1715) French engineer and cartographer, boarded in 1695 on a boat from a six ships squadron commanded by de Gennes to established a colony in the Strait of Magellan area. From this travel he brings back the first accurate printed map of Rio, and a lot of informations on different topics, richly illustrated with his own drawings. Gripping book of the first official French travel to the Strait of Magellan. Sabin 26003 ; Chadenat 2622.

A rare and important work. The author's contributions to cardiology were of great importance. "By injecting mercury into various vessels and internal organs, of living animals and fresh human cadavers, Vieussens was able to trace the exact course of the blood's flow in differents parts of the body. He confirmed the hypothesis that there is a continuous vascular pathway between the arterial and venous vessels. In cardiac pathology, he was the first to describe mitral stenosis and aortic insufficiency on the basis of both clinical and anatomicopathological observation. Vieussens had already noted that disease of the aorta manifests itself by a characteristic pulse, which was rediscovered a century later by D. J. Corrigan, whose name it now bears" (DSB, XIV, 26)

        Praeludia botanica ad publicas Plantarum Exoticarum demonstrationes dicta in Horto medico, cum demonstrationes exoticarum 3 Octobris 1701, & 29 Maji 1702.

      - Leyden, Joh. du Vivie, 1715. 4to (260 x 205mm). pp. (viii), 85, (1), with 33 engraved plates. Contemporary vellum, gilt lettered spine. A reissue of this title, which first appeared in 1703. "The 'Praeludia botanica' is an important work because it offers the first illustrations of certain aloes and other plants" (Hunt p. 405). "Important because of the first description of a number of South African plants. Wijnands (1973) provides an example of the importance of the book for the typification of South African taxa" (Stafleu & Cowan). Caspar Commelin (1667/68- 1731) was professor of botany and director of the botanical garden of Amsterdam at a time that numerous South African plants were introduced through the Dutch East Indies Company and first grown in the Amsterdam 'Hortus Medicus'. He succeeded his uncle Jan Commelin.Stafleu & Cowan 1185; Nissen BBI, 388; Kerkham, Southern African Botanical Literature, 159. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        CONSIDERATIONS ON THE QUAKERS SOLEMN AFFIRMATION; AND MAKE-ING THE SAME PERPETUAL; HUMBLY PROPOSED TO THE CONSIDERATION OF THE HIGH COURT OF PARLIAMENT [caption title]

      [London, 1715. Broadsheet, 14 1/2 x 9 1/4 inches. [2]pp. including printed docket title. Printed in two columns. Dbd. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Small portion of lower inner margin excised, with no loss to text. Mild foxing. Very good. A scarce and highly informative letter to Parliament offering a critical history of the Quakers' "solemn affirmation." In 1696, after experiencing decades of exclusion and imprisonment for conscientiously refusing to take loyalty and court oaths, Quakers were granted the right by Parliament to take a "solemn affirmation" in legal situations in place of an actual oath. Over the next two decades many Quakers continued to object over the use of God's name in the affirmation, and various non- Quakers continued to express their resentment over the entire matter. In 1715 a bill was under consideration in Parliament to renew indefinitely the Quakers' right to the affirmation. The author of this document, Francis Bugg, recommends against passing it "Without a Universal Obligation upon them...without a Penalty upon every Quaker that shall neglect or refuse to take it in due Form," pointing to hypocrisy and disingenuousness he has perceived among that community. Bugg (1640-1724?) was a Quaker apostate who published numerous writings against Quakerism from about 1680 through the 1720s. Dated May 5, 1715, and signed in print by F. Bugg. Not listed in Joseph Smith's BIBLIOTECA ANTI-QUAKERIANA or A DESCRIPTIVE CATALOGUE OF FRIENDS' BOOKS. ESTC lists copies at three institutions: the British Library, the Library of the Religious Society of Friends, and Oxford. DNB III, pp.226-28.

        Lezione accademica intorno all'origine delle fontane, colle Annotazioni per chiarezza maggiore della medesima. Venezia, Gio. Gabr. Hertz, 1715

      Hertz Gio. Gabr, 1715. in - 4, pp. (8), 87, leg. orig. cartoncino rustico, tit. ms. al dorso. Dedica a stampa dell'a. a Luigi Ferdinando Marsilli. Con una tavola inc. in rame ripieg. f.t. raffigurante le sezioni geologiche di alcune località montane. Prima edizione, seconda tiratura (cfr. Sabia M., Le opere di A. Vallisnieri, nn. 106 e 120: ''le principali e accreditate bibliografie di testi scientifici del Settecento confermano che la prima edizione originale dell'opera è stata stampata nel 1715..Ma in realtà il trattato vide la luce l'anno precedente, cioè nel 1714 e in seguito lo stampatore ha continuato l'impressione del volume, ma in seconda tiratura.., identica alla precedente col solo cambio della data sul frontespizio''). Opera d'importanza straordinaria del grande medico e naturalista reggiano (1661 - 1730), vero e proprio classico della letteratura geologica, che contiene le prime osservazioni sulle sorgenti alpine; inoltre la bella tavola incisa costituisce sicuramente uno dei primi esempi di illustrazione stratigrafica moderna. ''Vallisnieri, con una serie di osservazioni scientifiche, ritiene che i fiumi siano originati dalle pioggie e dai ghiacciai i quali, come grandi spugne, lasciano colare l'acqua poco a poco'' (op. cit., ibidem). Alla ''lezione accademica'', recitata dal Vallisnieri nell'Accademia dei Ricovrati di Padova, seguono le ''Annotazioni'' sull'argomento (pp. 15 - 79), tra cui le celebri fonti modenesi già studiate da Bernardino Ramazzini, suo amico e collega universitario; viene poi la ''Giunta'' con spiegazione delle sei figure della tavola. Esempl. perfetto, a pieni margini ed immacolato, arricchito da dedica autografa del Vallisnieri nel margine del titolo ''Al Sig. Canale l'Autore in segno d'una distin.ma stima''.

Pages de titres en rouge et noir. Reliures en pleine basane marbrée d'époque. Dos à nerfs ornés. Pièces de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge.

Manque en marge du frontispice du tome I. malgré les défauts cités, assez bon exemplaire, de bon aspect. Ex - libris manuscrit du célèbre bibliophile Jules Bobin. Pierre de Montmaur fut un personnage haut en couleur du XVIIe et se décrivait lui - même comme : Le plus grand parasite que le globe ait jamais porté ! Il hantait les salons dans l'idée de dîner et son appêtit semblait ne connaître aucune borne, malgré son extrême maigreur. Il avouait lui - même agir ainsi par avarice, et non content de s'en tenir à la nourriture, il affichait ostensiblement une incroyable pédanterie et attaquait tout le monde de ses épigrammes et ses bons mots, dont tout le monde des lettres fut victime. C'est ainsi que Ménage, Voiture, Sorel, d'Alibray furent raillés par lui et se lièrent pour répondre au moqueur par des pamphlets. L'ouvrage est non seulement composé de l'histoire de Pierre de Montmaur par Sallengres, mais également des écrits de ce dernier et de tous les textes satiriques que l'on a écrit sur lui, ainsi du Barbon de Guez de Balzac et Le parasite mormon de la Mothe Le Vayer. Montmaur ne fut pourtant jamais inquiété et continua à sévir, les nombreuses pensions qui lui furent accordées lui assurèrent un train de vie plus que convenable.

        A Second Tale of a Tub: or, The History of Robert Powel the Puppet-Show-Man

      Printed for J. Roberts near the Oxford Arms in Warwick-Lane,, London 1715 - 8vo: [2],219,[5]pp, with frontispiece and imprimatur leaf. Variant with price 3s/6d on title page. Period calf ruled in blind, rebacked to style, red morocco lettering piece gilt, end papers renewed. From the library of bibliophile Hugh Selbourne, M.D. (1906-1973), with his discreet ownership stamp on two pages. (In an appreciation of Shelbourne's diaries, Hilary Mantle noted in The Guardian: "His passion is for antiquarian books, and he owns them by the yard; we are not talking about first editions of Dickens, but first editions of Erasmus, 'printed Basle, 1517'. His regular beat takes him to his private consulting rooms at St John Street in the centre of Manchester, then to Shaw's, the book dealer . . .".) A handsome copy, clean and sound, with several abrasions to boards, marginal toning to some leaves, occasional spots and soiling, inoffensive ink blot to p. 195 obscuring four or five letters but not affecting sense. ESTC Citation N22063. McBurney 79. Lowndes 325 (calling it a satire on Sir Robert Walpole, ascribed to Thomas Duffet). Wicked satire on statesman Robert Harley, Earl of Oxford (political power-broker and patron of Jonathan Swift, Alexander Pope, and Daniel Defoe), taking its title from Swift's celebrated Tale of a Tub (but not recorded by Teerink-Scouten in the list of spurious sequels to Swift's work). Probably written with the collaboration of George Duckett, it casts an account of Harley's life as an allegory of a Machiavellian scoundrel who betrays family and friends in his rise to power and practice of ruthless state craft. The vehicle for this allegory is Martin Powell (fl. 1709-29), the physically deformed showman who ran a celebrated puppet-show in Covent Garden (as shown in the frontispiece). The Tale portrays Harley as a puppet-master manipulating Swift and other hack writers in the service of the Tory faction. Though not a novel, per se, Second Tale of a Tub is seen by some as an important link between Swift's antecedent and Laurence Sterne's Tristram Shandy (Eugene Korkowskia, Studies in the Novel, Vol. 6, No. 4, pp. 470-474).

        Invitto a' religiosi contro dell'armi Ottomane. Ad' istanza di Gioseppe Madi detto il Musico Toscano.

      Venice & Bassano, Giovanni Antonio Remondini, [ca. 1715]. - 8vo. 8 pp. With woodcut device on title page. Wrappers. An appeal, written in verse, to all religious orders and Christian laymen to take arms against the Ottomans. Apparently an early product of the Turkish-Venetian War of 1714-18, in which the new Grand Vizier Silahdar Damat Ali Pasha re-conquered Morea (the Peloponnesus) from the Venetians, who had held the peninsula since 1699. A different version (kept at the Biblioteca Civica Bertoliana in Vicenza), published by Giovanni Berno "in Venetia, Bassano, & in Verona", is dated 1715; this date of publication is also supported by the mention of Pope Clement XI (1700-21). However, the Marciana in Venice keeps an earlier publication of the same work produced for the Venetian Alessandro Cortesi, bearing the date 1663. Yet another, undated version in the Biblioteca Universitaria di Padova bears the imprint "In Venezia, per Domenico Lovisa à Rialto". No other copy with Remondini's imprint is known. - Some browning and waterstaining; old pagination in manuscript and stamped (apparently removed from an old collection). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        SOME REASONS HUMBLY OFFERED, TO THE CONSIDERATIONS OF BOTH HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT, WHY THE QUAKERS AFFIRMATION SHOULD NOT PASS INSTEAD OF AN OATH [caption title].

      [London? ]. 1715 - 4pp. Printed in two columns Dbd. Small folio. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Some foxing. Very good. A rare and expansive appeal to Parliament against the 1715 bill to renew the Quakers' right to the "solemn affirmation" in place of the legal oath. In 1696, after experiencing decades of exclusion and imprisonment for conscientiously refusing to take loyalty and court oaths, Quakers were granted the right by an act of Parliament to take a "solemn affirmation" in legal situations in place of an actual oath. In 1715, a bill was under consideration in Parliament to renew that act indefinitely. Significantly longer than most lobbying documents from this time, this petition asks that Parliament only extend the act if the affirmation be made "of no Force where they are concern'd in Interest, but where they only Affirm as Witnesses between others, there being no Temptation for them to Lye, when it brings no Profit to them." Many Quakers by this time had achieved significant prosperity in manufacturing and commerce, adding fuel to their enemies' resentment. The author of this pamphlet charges various Friends with hypocrisy, greed, and swindling and reprints an earlier petition describing six widows of commanders of two "Guinea ships" allegedly defrauded by Quakers (including one Quaker from Maryland). Not listed in Joseph Smith's BIBLIOTECA ANTI- QUAKERIANA or A DESCRIPTIVE CATALOGUE OF FRIENDS' BOOKS. ESTC records only one copy, at Oxford.

Reported on the Ninth of June, 1715...Together with an appendix, containing Memorials, Letters, and other Papers referred to in the said Report. Published by Order of the House of Commons

      London: Printed for Jacob Tonson, Timothy Goodwin, Bernard Lintott, and William Taylor, 1715. [4], 64, 94pp. With initial license leaf. Handsomely bound in contemporary panelled calf, contrasting red morocco lettering-piece, gilt, with elaborate gilt supra-libros of the arms of Thomas Coningsby to centre of each board. Slightly rubbed, some short cracks to joints, bumping to corners and some darkening to spine. Presumably from the library of Whig politician Thomas Coningsby (1657-1729), English politician and vociferous member of the very parliamentary inquiry into the conduct of British negotiations of which this volume is the detailed report. The signing of the 1713 Treaties of Utrecht ended the Wars of the Spanish succession; strengthened English territorial dominance in North America; and established greater trade links with native American tribal areas as well as the monopoly over the supply of slaves to the Spanish colonies in South and Central America. Nevertheless, the domestic political reaction led to this detailed and lengthy enquiry into the actions of the English negotiators, and most especially that of Matthew Prior, by a committee of leading Whigs.

Vallisnieri, nn. 106 e 120: ''le principali e accreditate bibliografie di testi scientifici del Settecento confermano che la prima edizione originale dell'opera è stata stampata nel 1715.Ma in realtà il trattato vide la luce l'anno precedente, cioè nel 1714 e in seguito lo stampatore ha continuato l'impressione del volume, ma in seconda tiratura., identica alla precedente col solo cambio della data sul frontespizio''). Opera d'importanza straordinaria del grande medico e naturalista reggiano (1661-1730), vero e proprio classico della letteratura geologica, che contiene le prime osservazioni sulle sorgenti alpine; inoltre la bella tavola incisa costituisce sicuramente uno dei primi esempi di illustrazione stratigrafica moderna. ''Vallisnieri, con una serie di osservazioni scientifiche, ritiene che i fiumi siano originati dalle pioggie e dai ghiacciai i quali, come grandi spugne, lasciano colare l'acqua poco a poco'' (op. cit., ibidem). Alla ''lezione accademica'', recitata dal Vallisnieri nell'Accademia dei Ricovrati di Padova, seguono le ''Annotazioni'' sull'argomento (pp. 15-79), tra cui le celebri fonti modenesi già studiate da Bernardino Ramazzini, suo amico e collega universitario; viene poi la ''Giunta'' con spiegazione delle sei figure della tavola. Esempl. perfetto, a pieni margini ed immacolato, arricchito da dedica autografa del Vallisnieri nel margine del titolo ''Al Sig. Canale l'Autore in segno d'una distin.ma stima''. Sabia, Opere di Vallisnieri, nn. 106 e 120. DBIt. XIII, pp. 362-5. Riccardi 578. Gamba 2482, note. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE MOST SAD AND DEPLORABLE CASE OF ROBERT BLACKBURNE, JOHN BERNARDI, ROBERT CASSILLS, ROBERT MELDRUM, AND JAMES CHAMBERS. HUMBLY PRESENTED TO THE PARLIAMENT OF GREAT BRITAIN [caption title].

      [London? ca. ]. 1715 - Broadsheet, 14 x 8 1/2 inches. [2]pp. With ornamental initial on recto and and printed docket title on verso. 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. A petition to Parliament to review the case of Robert Blackburne and others connected to the so-called "Lancashire Plot" who were imprisoned in London without charges, trial, or opportunity for habeas corpus. Robert Blackburne (d. 1748), a scion of prominent Roman Catholic families in Lancashire, and his companions were arrested in 1695 on suspicion of connection to an assassination plot against William III and held at Newgate prison, where "no person but our Jaylor and his Servants were permitted to speak with us. We were denied the Use of Pen, Ink, and Paper, debarred of all Comforts and Conveniences, and under great Hardships as to the very Necessaries of Life; out Confinement being so strict, that even our Food and Linnen were searched, to prevent the least Communication." When after many years of being held without trial they finally managed to enter a request for habeas corpus, their petition was denied because they had not claimed it during the first parliamentary session after their imprisonment. This, they note, had been impossible to do, as they had had no access to pen, paper, or friends beyond the prison walls. Around 1715, following the accession of King George I and the election of a new Whig Parliament, the prisoners learned of a new bill in Parliament which they hoped would at last secure their release. It apparently was never passed, and Robert Blackburne was never exonerated; he died after fifty-three years' imprisonment, never brought to trial. An early example of lobbying literature, which first began proliferating in the lobby of the House of Commons during the 1710s. Signed in print by Robert Blackburne, John Cassells, John Bernardi, Robert Meldrum, and J. Chambers. Rare, with ESTC recording only four copies, three in England and one at the Folger Library. Thomas Taaffe, "Robert Blackburne," in THE CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA, Vol. 2 (New York: Robert Appleton Company, 1907).
