        Memoires de Monsieur le Cardinal de Retz EDITION ORIGINALE

      A Nancy: Chez Jean-Baptiste Cusson, 1717. Fine. Chez Jean-Baptiste Cusson, A Nancy 1717, 3 tomes en 3 Vol. in-12 (9,5x16,5cm), (4) 354pp. et (2) 359pp. et (2) 389pp., reliés. - First edition, very rare. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, très rare. Bien que brunet annonce cette édition comme comportant des lacunes, celle de 1731 étant l'édition ancienne la plus complète, ces dites lacunes ne seront jamais résolues dans les éditions anciennes. Pages de titre en rouge et noir. Reliures en pleine basane brune d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné de caissons. Pièce de titre de maroquin rouge et de tomaison en maroquin brun. Habiles restaurations aux coiffes, mors et coins. Une marque de brûlure p.224. Bon exemplaire. Paul de Gondi rédige ses mémoires à la demande de ses amis, lors de son exil, vers l'âge de soixante ans (vers 1675 - 1677), et compose l'autobiographie d'un homme politique dans une époque de guerre civile, la Fronde. Non content d'être un témoignage historique de tout premier plan, l'oeuvre figure parmi les monuments littéraires du XVIIIe et des mémoires et autres autobiographies, par son style alerte, précis, celui d'un homme d'action et d'intrigues à l'intelligence remarquable et à l'ambition politique toujours en éveil (toujours prêt à s'allier à qui l'a trahi la veille). Ses mémoires constitueront une revanche et son dernier ressort d'ambition. Ce fut les moines de l'abbaye de Saint Mihiel qui éditèrent le manuscrit des mémoires qu'ils possédaient, le cardinal en avait rédigé la plu grande partie chez eux, mais madame de Caumartin, l'instigatrice de ces mémoires, et à laquelle ils furent dédiés, avait également en sa possession un manuscrit plus complet, mais qu'elle ne voulut jamais donner. Ils furent cependant découvert complets dans l'abbaye à la Révolution, on gage que madame de Caumartin les avait finalement envoyés à l'abbaye de Saint Mihiel.

        An exact abridgment of all the publick printed Irish statutes of Queen Anne and King George, in force and use, to the end of the first session of this present parliament. Anno Dom. 1716

      Dublin: James Carson 4to (20.7 cm, 8.2"). [4], 263, [1], xv, [25] pp.. 1717 Uncommon first edition: the "Scope and Intendment of every Paragraph" of the Irish statutes, designed to be of use both "those that have not, as those that have these Statutes at large" (p. [iii]). The author published several other studies of Irish law, including The Office and Authority of a Justice of Peace for Ireland, The Laws of Masters and Servants in Ireland (one of the earliest English-language works to focus on the field of labor law), and The Office and Authority of Sheriffs, Under-Sheriffs, Deputies, County-Clerks, and Coroners, in Ireland. ESTC. COPAC, and WorldCat locate => only four U.S. institutional holdings, one in Ireland, and one in Britain, but we know of a copy at the Irish National Library that is not found in those databases. Provenance: Title-page with inked inscription of Redmond Pursell (possibly Purcell), dated 1717; verso inscribed "Patt. Weldon his hand, dated May the 4th 1777," with "Patr. Weldon, His Book" on the first preface page and another Pursell/Purcell inscription on the first text page. Modern leather old style with most of original covers laid down on the modern boards, spine with blind-tooled raised bands and gilt-stamped leather label; original leather worn and cracked. First few leaves with edges darkened/chipped and those fly-leaves with edge tears; title-page and preface margins repaired. Inked inscriptions as above, title-page additionally with later inked institutional shelf number and "withdrawn" note; fly-leaves with early inked calculations and budget notes; three instances of early inked marginalia and two printed shouldernotes with marks of emphasis. Pages age-toned with scattered small spots (a few signatures darkened or with more notable spotting), some corners bumped, smudges to last few leaves; one leaf with small hole with loss of seven letters. Solid, usable, and attractive on the shelf.

      Hamburgi: Christiani Liebezeit 8vo (17.5 cm, 6.9"). Frontis., [22], 103, [1], 507, [5] pp.. 1717 Attractive edition of this literary and antiquarian tour of the Swabia, Helvetia, and Bavaria regions of Germany, written by a well-travelled Benedictine monk acclaimed for his scholarship. Originally published in 1683, the Iter Germanicum is here introduced by Joannes Albertus Fabricius and accompanied by an important treatise on European universities since the time of Charlemagne, by French historian Jean de Launoy (Joannes Launoius). An engraved frontispiece of Ptolemy done by Menzel opens the volume; the main title-page is printed in red and black, with an engraved allegorical vignette. Provenance: Title-page verso with intaglio-printed armorial ex libris, printed directly on the leaf (not a bookplate that was glued on): "Ex Bibliotheca Friederici Roth-Scholtzii." Friedrich Roth-Scholtz (1687–1736) was a prominent Nuremberg printer and publisher, as well as the author of Icones bibliopolarum et typographorum de republica litteraria and the Bibliotheca chemica; there are several reported examples of such bookplates in his books.

        Answers for John Campbel of Calder Esq; and Mr. James Anderson writer to the signet his factor: To the petition of Ruth Pollock, who calls herself relict of Captain George Campbel, son to the deceast Sir Hugh Campbel

      [Edinburgh] Folio (30.5 cm, 12"). 4 pp.. 1717 The battle between Ruth Pollock and the Campbells (or Calders, from their estate of Cawdor) rages on, with the Calder side strenuously denying that any legitimate marriage ever took place between her and Capt. George Campbell. Pollock, who called herself Campbell's widow despite apparently never having been acknowledged as his wife during his lifetime, was claiming a portion of the estate of his father, Sir Hugh Campbell; in this response to some of her petitions, lawyer John Fleming, acting on behalf of the Campbells, discusses the merits of various claims as pertaining to estate law. WorldCat, ESTC, and NUC Pre-1956 record => no holdings of this item. Once sewn, now in a Mylar folder. Last leaf with closed tear partially repaired some time ago, costing or or obscuring a few letters to each line of about two paragraphs on either side of leaf. Age-toned, dust-soiled, creased.

      - Beroloni: Apud Godofredum Gedickium, Bibliopol., 1717-1729, kl.-8°, schwarz/rote Titelblätter, je einem Portrait Frontispize, mit Tabellen und Kupfertafeln, 1 Pergamenteinband der Zeit u. 3 Pappbände im Stil der Zeit. Erste Auflage! Fast vollständige Folge der frühen medizinischen Zeitschrift, von der dritten Dekade erschien nur noch 1 Heft. "Ein bedeutendes Zeugnis der medizinischen Publizistik zu Beginn des 18. Jahrhunderts" (NDB 6, 600). - - Seltene medizinische Zeitschrift. - Kirchner I, 3516 . Hirsch-H. II, 789 - Die von ihm seit 1717 herausgegebenen Acta medicorum Berolinensium sind ein bedeutendes Zeugnis der medizinischen Publizistik zu Beginn des 18. Jahrhunderts. Hier wurden unter anderem wahrscheinlich die beiden ersten deutschen Todesursachenstatistiken veröffentlicht (Band 4, 1719, Band 9, 1722). Johann Daniel Gohl (Pseudonym Ursinus Wahrmund) Arzt, Medizinalstatistiker, (1674-1731) versuchte, auch die Geisteskrankheiten in das ärztliche Denken mit einzubeziehen und wissenschaftlich zu bearbeiten. (Vgl. ADB, 9, 327.) - - "Eine so ausgedehnte anatomische Tätigkeit, wie wir sie seit der Errichtung des anatomischen Theaters, seit 1713, verfolgt haben, mußte notwendigerweise auch viele krankhafte Veränderungen zutage fördern. Man achtete auf sie, registrierte sie, diskutierte ihre Bedeutung und verwahrte sie in der Sammlung. Die praktischen Ärzte Berlins waren indessen nicht gewillt, sich mit diesen Zufallsfunden zu begnügen. Ein überraschendes Bild zeigt die älteste Berliner ärztliche Zeitschrift, die "Acta medicorum Berolinensium in incrementum artis et scientiarum collecta! Sit erschien in 24 (recte 21) Oktavheftchen von je etwa 100 Seiten von 1717 bis 1730, vom vierten Jahr des Theatrum anatomicum bis zum vierten Jahr der Charité. Ihr Herausgeber war zunächst Badearzt in Freienwalde, dann oberbarnimscher Kreisarzt in Wriezen, Johann Daniel Gohl, ein Schüler Stahls. "In incrementum artis et scientiarum" ist ihr Inhalt gesammelt, "auf daß die ärztliche Kunst und Wissenschaft wachse". Die Praxis steht also vor der Wissenschaft, und aus der Praxis ist ihr Inhalt erwachsen. Da sind kasuistische Beiträge aus Berlin, aus Freienwalde. Neben ihnen aber finden wir lange Reihen von Sektionsberichten aus der Krankenhaus- und Privatpraxis, von Obduktionen also, die nicht anatomische Kenntnisse verbreiten oder vermehren, sondern Einblick in das Krankheitsgeschehen vermitteln sollten, d. h. von pathologisch-anatomischen Leichenöffnungen. - - Diese "praktische Anatomie" wie man das damals nannte, ist hier unverkennbar erwachsen aus den forensischen Leichenöffnungen, die, seit man im hohen Mittelalter wieder menschliche Leichen zu Unterrichts Zwecken sezierte, bei gewaltsamem Tode von den Behörden angeordnet, von Wundärzten vorgenommen, von Ärzten geleitet wurden. Auch die Berliner "Acta" berichten fortlaufend über solche "depositiones medico-legales". Weit mehr Raum aber beanspruchen in ihren Heften* die "sectiones anatomicae extralegales" oder auch "anatomico- pathôlogicae" an den Leichen der "nicht durch Gewalt, sondern durch eine Krankheit zu Tode Gekommenen. - - Man machte sie zumeist in den Hospitälern, aber gelegentlich auch in Privathäusern. Greifen wir, um eine konkrete Vorstellung zu gewinnen, ein Heft der ,"Acta" heraus (Dec. I, H. 7). Es beschreibt auf dreißig Textseiten die pathologisch-anatomischen Sektionen des Jahres 1718, 24 an der Zahl. Elf von ihnen wurden in den Militärlazaretten, sieben im Großen Friedrichs-Hospital - noch bestand ja die Charité nicht - vorgenommen, und einige in den Wohnungen der Verstorbenen. Bei den ersteren wird als Leiter der Arzt Bergemann, als Ausführender der Chirurg Bechtold genannt. Die übrigen verrichtete der Chirurg Marggraf. Als Todesursachen sind atrophia und febris lenta und continua u. a. angegeben, auch ein Wassersüchtiger und ein skrophulöser Knabe sind dabei, sowie ein Patient, der an den Folgen einer Herniotomie starb. Dazu kommen zwei Geisteskranke. Den . [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Holy Bible

      Oxford: John Baskett 1717 - First edition of the enormous Baskett Bible, a &#147;magnificent edition, printed in large type&#148; (DMH) and &#147;one of the most beautiful Bibles ever produced&#148; (Campbell, Bible: The Story of the King James Version). &#147;Only Baskerville&#146;s Bible (Cambridge, 1763) is its equal among English Bibles for beauty of type, impression, and paper, and the richness of its decoration gives the Vinegar Bible a unique distinction&#148; (Carter, The History of the Oxford University Press). This is the first and greatest Bible printed by John Baskett, the leading publisher of English Bibles in the first half of the 18th century. From 1710 to 1743 Baskett had a monopoly on Bible publishing in England and Scotland. Baskett&#146;s patron Arthur Charlett described the &#147;proposed splendour&#148; of this work: &#147;We are here printing a most Magnificent English Bible, some very few Copys will be in Vellum for a Present to the Queen & my Ld Treasurer. You know Dr Wallis and Dr Gregory pronounced Mr Dennison absolutely the best Corrector they ever met with. If this Work have not the Advantage of his nice Ey at least in giving the first Directions, and settling the Distances of Lines & Words and the great Art in a beautiful and Uniforme Division of Syllables, with several other minute Regulations, invisible to vulgar Eys, the Work will want of its proposed Splendour . . . Mr Denison says the Fount of letters, is the very best He ever saw, and you know his Ey examines all the Tayls sides & Topps of letters &c. To do justice to Mr Basket, He spares no Cost nor Pains&#148; (quoted by Norton, Textual History of the King James Bible). Despite its typographical beauty, the Baskett Bible included shocking typographical errors. The best-known of these gives the edition its most famous name, the Vinegar Bible, from the misprint &#147;the parable of the vinegar&#148; for &#147;vineyard&#148; in a heading in Luke XX. One buyer wrote to Charlett that the Bible bought for use at Winchester Cathedral was found to have errors in two consecutive chapters and added that &#147;we have reason to fear that the whole edition is faulty.&#148; He warned, &#147;Fame has fastened on the errors: what might have been one of the glories of English printing is one of its curiosities.&#148; Some called the enormous Bible a &#147;Baskett-ful of errors.&#148; This handsome example of the Vinegar Bible is in a splendid period goatskin binding in unrestored condition. Provenance: W. A. Foyle, with bookplate, sold Christie&#146;s, 11 July 2000, lot 499. Darlow, Moule, and Herbert, Historical Catalogue of Printed Editions of the English Bible 1525-1961 942 variant A. Darlow, Moule, and Herbert identify two distinct editions (A and B), observing that the engravings in the B edition often &#147;represent allegorical subjects, and others are merely ornamental pieces, and do not, as in A, generally illustrate Bible incidents&#148; Folio (191⁄2 x 113⁄4 in.). Title and calendar printed in red and black, ruled in red throughout. Engraved frontispiece, vignettes, engraved head-pieces and initials. Blank lower corner torn from title, some browning, a few tears, mostly marginal. A fine contemporary Oxford binding of gilt-tooled black goatskin, covers elaborately paneled with a central lozenge enclosing a star, large corner-pieces with three dropping leaves, a pyramid built up from small tools on each side, spine compartments tooled with sprays, wavy-lines, semi- circular tools, and large corner-pieces, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Minimal restoration. A beautiful copy. One contemporary record suggests that the price for a well-bound copy such as this was a princely £4. 7. 6. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Exceedingly Rare Autographed Colonial Legal Document

      New York, 1717. unbound. 11.25 x 8.25 inches, City of New York, Commissioner for recording, Office of the Attorney General, February 14, 1717 -- a legal writ whereby Jamison presents charges against a colonist, in part: "David Jamison for our Lord the King George, by the grace of God of Great Britain, Wales and Scotland - and before John Johnston Esq., Mayor of the City of New York, on the 27th of Jan, in the fourth year of his reign...were informed that Jacob Bonnott...having insulted the King, faces damages sought in the amount of 24 shillings." Clearly signed "CJamison" as Recorder. Directly beneath this document, the Mayor of New York, John Johnston (1717 - 1719) pens his verdict in the form of an autographed document signed, February 14, 1717, in part: "CJacob Bonnett, the defendant, in his proper pardon before the above...acknowledged the above action and comforth judgment. I give judgment for the Plaintiff for one pound & four shillings Damages with Costs." A remarkable Colonial document. Slight weaknesses at the folds; very good(-) condition. Jamison was a Colonial lawyer, Attorney General of New York and New Jersey, staunch defender of religious freedom, and one of the founders of the Trinity Church. He was expelled from England (by the Stuarts) and sold into servitude in America because of his religious beliefs. As an accomplished lawyer, he later represented Reverend Francis Makemie, whereby the latter, a Presbyterian, was charged with "Preaching without a license in a private house." In this landmark case, Jamison argued for toleration in such a colony as New York, pointing out that he himself was (secretly) one of the founders of Trinity Church. To the amazement of many, Makemie was acquitted, and soon after, religious tolerance was enacted into the State Charter (1707). Jamison would eventually receive a Royal Commission as Recorder and Attorney General of New York. The founders of Trinity Church. Jamison was expelled from England (by the Stuarts) and sold into servitude in America because of his religious beliefs.

        A voyage to the South-Sea, and along the coasts of Chili and Peru, in the Years 1712, 1713, and 1714. Particularly describing The Genius and Constitution of the Inhabitants, as well Indians as Spaniards: Their customs and Manners, their Natural History, Mines, Commodities, Traffick with Europe, &c. With a postscript by Edmund Halley and an account of the settlement, commerce, and riches of the Jesuites in Paraguay

      London: Jonah Bowyer, 1717 A good copy of the first English edition (published one year after the French 1st publication) with 37 fine engraved plates, maps and charts as called for. Frezier was a French royal military engineer, and was asked to undertake a voyage to Spanish possessions in South America to study fortifications and to chart the western coast. The first section covers his voyage from France round Cape Horn and the second gives detail of his voyage along the coast of Chile and Peru. His observations were valuable and he gives interesting accounts of local people and customs. Of interest now (particularly for those with golfing and strawberry eating interests) are his depictions of a sport that looks like golf and his discovery of strawberries which he introduced to France. Frezier made some geographical errors which Halley (of comet fame) corrects in this edition. In contemporary panelled calf which has been expertly rebacked to provide a newer spine with raised bands and title label. Some remaining gilt decoration to board edges. With frontispiece map (relaid); title page in red and black inks with small signature to top; dedication 1p; Preface to the Reader 8pp; Letter to Mr Bowyer re the English printing by Edmund Halley asking leave to add a postscript 1p; directions to the binder 1p; text - with decorative head and tailpieces and decorative initial capitals - including 24 maps, charts and profiles - 17 folding - and 13 plates - 1 folding, and some musical notation pp 1-319; Postscript by Edmund Halley pp 320-322; Some Account of the Settlement of the Jesuits pp 323-335; Index 9pp Finis. The binding is in very good condition with only slight wear. The original endpapers have been repaired. The text pages have light brown toning to edges and there is some brown marking and a very occasional light scholarly annotation. The plates and maps are in very good clean condition - one has a small repaired tear and there is light toning to edges. Circa 7.5 x 9.5 inches.

Sturt (1658-1730) engraved most of the works of English writing-master, John Ayres, and contributed engravings to a number of religious or illustrated publications of his time. The advert leaf enumerates several of them, including the 1721 edition of THE ORTHODOX COMMUNICANT - suggesting that the advert leaf was revised as copies were bound and sold in the years following publication. There were also an unspecified number of copies imposed in 4to format, and yet other copies appear without red rules enhancing the borders and text blocks.

        Nouvelle Description Des Chateaux et Parcs De Versailles et De Marly

      , 1717 1717. PIGANIOL DE LA FORCE, Jean Aimar. Nouvelle Description des Châteaux et Parcs de Versailles et de Marly: contenant une explication historique de toutes les peintures, tableaux, statues, vases & ornemens qui s'y voient. Two volumes. xvi, 328; [6], 381(5) pp. Illustrated with 16 engraved folding plates depicting views and architectural plans. 8vo., 165 x 92 mm, uniformly bound in contemporary French calf, title gilt on spines on red morocco lettering piece, compartments gilt with small tools, red edges. Paris: Florentine Delaulne, 1717. |~||~||~||~||~| An excellent copy of this popular French guide book. The impressive Description des Châteaux et Parc de Versailles et de Marly, with 16 engraved folding plates executed by Scotin l'aîné after designs by Sébastien Leclerc. The present volumes comprise an important, and very early, architectural and artistic record of the King's châteaux at Versailles and Marly-le-Roi. The existence of the former is rarely documented in such great detail prior to the nineteenth century. The château at Marly-le-Roy (now destroyed) was a sumptuous country house built towards the end of the seventeenth century by Louis XIV. The estate was located in a narrow, enclosed valley which Louis deliberately chose as a site because it was secluded and offered no vistas or 'means of making one.' Berrall claims that "Louis changed his mind about the view and had a hill leveled to achieve one; then cascades were fashioned behind a small hermitage (a beautiful classic building designed by Mansart) to make an impressive water staircase with jets and marble statues. As the gardens grew, clipped trees were trained into elaborate canopies, avenues were cut into the woods, and statues were added." The central pavilion (inhabited by the King himself) and its twelve subsidiary pavilions were intended to suggest the sun surrounded by the signs of the zodiac. Marly was wholly abandoned by Louis XVI and was demolished after the Revolution, its art treasures having previously been dispersed. The present work also includes a description of the Labyrinth at Versailles with the fountains depicting the fables of Aesop, as rendered in verse by Benserade. Piganiol de la Force (1673-1753) is described by Weiss as "un compliateur exact et laborieux." The Description of these two châteaux first appeared in 1701 (an unillustrated duodecimo edition which comprised only 426 pages). The present set is of the ninth, and greatly augmented, edition. Very rarely found complete with all the plates, especially that depicting the celebrated machine at Marly which had been constructed to provide water for the fountains. Slightest damage to the heads of the spines and corners; otherwise, fine. Ernest de Ganay 40. Not in Millard, Besterman, Fowler, Hunt, Plesch, Nissen, or Pritzel. For other editions see Cohen-De Ricci 801, Berlin Katalog 2485, Sander 1559, Lewine 416, Cioranescu II, 1390, and Cicognara 4391. See also Berrall, The Garden: An Illustrated History, pp. 202-3.

        Ragguaglio delle Nozze delle Maesta di Filippo Quinto

      , 1717 1717. PARMA. Ragguaglio delle Nozze delle Maesta di Filippo Quinto E di Elisabetta Farnese, Nata principessa di Parma, Re Cattolici Delle Spagne Solennemente celebrate in Parma l'Anno 1714. By Giuseppe Maggiali. 115, [1] pp. Illustrated with an engraved frontispiece and five large folding plates by various artists after I. Spolverini. Folio, 316 x 202 mm, bound in full contemporary speckled Italian calf, red leather title label on spine, gilt-tooled stamped tools in spine compartments. Parma: Nella Stamperia di S.A.S., 1717. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition. A beautiful copy of one of the most attractive Fête books of the Italian Baroque. The illustrations include an allegorical frontispiece and five large, double-folding plates, etched by various artists after original designs by Ilario Spolverini. The text and etched plates document sumptious details attending the marriage of Philip V of Spain to Elizabeth Farnese of Parma in 1714. The wedding took place at the Parma Cathedral to much pomp and ceremony. "This was the culminating event for the Farnese family's dynastic ambitions, and its commemoration was ensured not only by this illustrated book, but also by the three series of narrative paintings that Duke Francesco Farnese commissioned from the local painter Ilario Spolverin" (Millard, Italian and Spanish Architectural Books, p. 341). The book is famous for the five folding etched plates; but the first holds pride of pre-eminence. It shows the magnificent cortège of the papal legate, Cardinal Gozzadini, Bishop of Imola, and the bridegroom Philip V entering the city of Parma on 15 September 1714. The order of the procession is described in detail in the text and the plate provides a seventy-three item legend of the participants at the bottom. "It is a boustrophedonic composition, in which the procession is made to cross eight times the width of the plate from top left to bottom left… At top right the pentagonal citadel of Parma is shown mistakenly (with six bastions) and joyously exploding in bursts of smoke, illustrating the cannon salute described in the text. The excitement of movement is further enlivened by the baggage train of mules and by the cantering horses that pull a great collection of fancy carriages or carry elaborately attired courtiers. The principal participants- the papal legate, the royal ambassador, and the Duke of Parma- are shown close to the actual center of the sheet under a baldachin" (Millard p. 344). The original drawing by Spolverini for this spectacular etched plate survives in the British Museum (Arisi 1986). The other fine plates include the wedding decorations adorning the exterior facade of the Cathedral and two interior views of the Cathedral, one of these interior views showing the actual ceremony, clearly indicating the particular participants, the invited guests, and the detailed costumes worn by each. The final plate offers a diagramatic plan of the Cathedral with the wedding seating chart. This copy is in extremely fine condition, fresh both inside and out. Very scarce thus. Melzi II, 403.

Evenly toned throughout, Worm track to title [[30mm reducing thereafter] and first 9 leaves of Volume 3 with loss of a few letters. Boards rubbed. ex libris removed from front endpapers; shelf mark removed from spines . Joseph Pitton de Tournefort:"Relation D'Un Voyage au Levant" was first published, postumously, in Paris in 1717 [4to]; This edition was published the same year in Lyons [8vo]. The following year, 1818 two more editions were published; in Amsterdam [in the original French] [4to], and in London, translated in to English [8vo]. In 1737 an edition was published in Dutch, in Amsterdam [4to], followed in 1741 by a second English edition. The last edition was published in German in 1776 [8vo]. The plates, after the sketches and paintings of Claude Aubriet, therefore appear in a number of formats depending upon the edition. Joseph Pitton de Tournefort [ 1656-1708] was primarily a Botanist, who became a professor at the Jardin du Roi in Paris and is remembered for producing a system of plant classification and nomenclature in the 1690s. He was a pioneer in systematic botany, whose system of plant classification represented a major advance in his day and remains, in some respects, valid to the present time. His Institutiones Rei Herbariae (1700) might be described as the most important precursor of Linnaeus's work. In" Relation D'Un Voyage au Levant.."(1717) he was the first to describe the common azalea and rhododendron, as well as other plants he collected during this journey. The genus Tournefortia of the Boraginaceae was named for him. He visited the Levant in the years 1700 -1702, at the command of Louis XIV; He was expressly commanded to go overland so that he could confirm the accuracy of the maps and reports the King was receiving from his ambassadors to the Caliphs of Alexandria & Constantinople. He was paticularly to observe the peoples, towns, cities, produce and manufacturing of the countries through which he travelled. Originally he was to travel through as far as Ethiopia via Eygypt, but he turned back early, on hearing reports of the Plague. He was accompanied on the Voyage by the artist Claude Aubriet. "Tournefort though a scholar was by no means a enthusiast and therefore his descriptions celebrated places may generally be depended If any thing he was too much disposed from not uncommon species of affectation to disparage places on which the ancients have thrown the rays of glory"  " The Lives of Celebrated Travellers: Jospeh Pitton de Tournefort..." By James Augustus St. John 1839.

Printed from the author's original plates inserted in the Paris edition. Lacks the frontispiece map. Royal octavo (9 3/4" x 7 3/4") bound in leather with raised spine bands and red label with gilt lettering. Postscript by Dr Edmund Halley and an account of the settlement, commerce and riches of the Jesuits in Paraguay. (Palau 94965, Sabin 25926, Nissen ZBI 1433, Hill p117) First English edition. Frézier was educated in Paris and served as lieutenant of infantry from 1702 til 1707, when he entered the engineer corps. In 1712 the government sent him to examine the condition of the Spanish colonies in America. After visiting the principal points in Peru, Chili and Brazil, he returned to Marseilles. He pointed out several mistakes in the "Relation" of Father Feuille, and this led to a bitter controversy between the two travelers. Frézier introduced the large Chili strawberry into France. First published in France in 1714. The first edition into English is preferable to the French original "because it contains Halley's. postscript, which corrects certain geographical errors made by Frézier" (Hill). "The first part of this book gives an interesting account of the voyage from France around Cape Horn. The second part relates to the voyage along the coasts of Chile and Peru, describing the chief towns and cities. Frézier, a man of observation, brought back information of considerable geographical and scientific value. Much data is included about the native inhabitants.
