BAYLE (Pierre)]
- Rotterdam, chez les Héritiers de Reinier Leers [i.e. Trévoux], 1721. Ensemble de 3 ouvrages en 4 volumes in-12, plein veau blond, dos à 4 nerfs plats guillochés or, ornés de compartiments garnis de filets dorés et au noir, fleuron répété entre-nerfs, triple filet d'encadrement sur les plats, pièces de titre et de tomaison de veau noir, dentelle sur les coupes et les chasses, tranches rouges (rel. XIXe). Ensemble des trois ouvrages que Bayle consacre à la critique de la superstition, de l'intolérance et du fanatisme. Il y donne toute la mesure de sa prodigieuse érudition et de sa méthode: "l'examen critique des faits servant à dissoudre les préjugés et la mise en avant d'une éthique liée à la nature de l'homme et indépendante de toute croyance de l'esprit". "Le premier essai par lequel Bayle se fit connaître, d'une importance très grande dans son oeuvre, celui qu'il a écrit avec le plus de liberté ( ). Contient des textes essentiels" (Delvolve, p. 43). L' 'Addition aux Pensées diverses.’ figure à la suite des ‘Pensées’ sous page de titre particulière et pagination continue à partir de la page 305. La 'Continuation des pensées diverses', fut composée plus de vingt ans après les 'Pensées diverses'. Bayle y approfondit sa thèse. L’étude comparative entre l'athéisme et l'idolâtrie qu’il développe, et la préférence déclarée de l’auteur pour le premier, firent scandale. Bonne édition. Le lieu d'impression est fictif, l'ouvrage a été imprimé à Trévoux, selon le catalogue de la BnF et Weller. (Haag, II, 78. Delvolve, n°6, 29 et 33).

BOSMAN, Willem.
London, James Knapton, a.o., 1721.Contemporary mottled calf, with red morocco title-label to spine (extremities of spine sl. dam.). With folding engraved map of Guinea and 7 engraved plates. (8),456,(16) pp.Second English edition, first published in Dutch in 1704. - Willem Bosman (1672 - ?), employee of the Dutch West India Company (WIC) and chief Dutch factor at the castle of Elmina, wrote the first authoritative and detailed account of the West Coast of Africa, during a 14 years' residence there. It is the chief source for the knowledge of the Dutch slave-trade during the second half of the 17th century. It also gives an interesting picture of international rivalry, current trade, and the wretched depraved existence of the European factors stationed permanently on the coast. The book is written in the form of letters to a friend. The last two letters are written by other authors. The first is written by David van Nyendael containing a description of Rio Formosa, or Benin. The second is written by Jan Snoek giving a description of the Tooth and Grain Coast. The fine plates depict the trade-settlements on the West African coast. 'Usually recognised as the standard work concerning the Gold Coast of this period' (Cardinall 256). - Fine. Cf. Tiele 174; Cf. Cat. NHSM I, p. 204; Paulitschke 894: 'Sehr wichtiges Reisewerk'; Gay 2808; Work p.6; Hogg 144b.

HOWELL, Laurence (1664?-1720)
engraven and sold by J. Sturt in Golden Lion Court in Aldersgate Street : 1721 : London : 8vo, pp. iv, [6], v-ix, [1], 82. According to ESTC this is the most common binding order. : This was Sturt's second engraved liturgical book following his better known Book of Common Prayer of 1717. The text is annonymous but generally attributed to Laurence Howell; however it is Sturt who signs the dedication to Lady Henrietta Cavendish. Sturt was apprenticed at the age of 17 to Robert White and he engraved a number of portrait frontispieces in the manner of his master. He engraved writing books for John Ayres, Thomas Watson, John Seddon and Eleazar Wiggan in the 1680's and 90's. Perhaps the prayer book too was intended as a copy-book and the subscribers include 3 writing masters, Robert More, Elias Pen and Ralph Snow.Interestingly, other graphic artists and members of the printing trades are prominent in the subscribers list, including the letter founder Robert Andrews; the engravers Edward Hill, Andrew Motte and John Senex; the drawing masters Bernard Lens senior; the limners Bernard and Edward Lens; and the printers Benjamin Mott and Richard Nutt, and James Roberts. Among prominent book collectors we find Sir Hans Sloane and Lord Harley, as well as a separate subscription for Lady Harley. And members of Sturt's family: Nathaniel, Jacob, Anne and Eliza. Like the prayer book, each leaf, with the exception of the final leaf of subscribers, is made up of two leaves pasted back to back. Each page is printed from two separate plates, a border, which repeats, and an inner plate with an i … [Click Below for Full Description]

SENEX, John.
London: John Senex, 1721. Hand-coloured engraved map measuring 540 x 625 mm. (sheet size), with ornamental title caption to the top left corner; slight aging, very good condition, mounted. Finely engraved map of greater Asia (including Arabia, India and a small portion of northernmost Australia) by John Senex (1678-1740), geographer to Queen Anne and fellow of the Royal Society. As with many maps of the early eighteenth-century the coastline of northern Australia is included.The map was printed for the New General Atlas of 1721, drawing upon information from a wide variety of sources including leading continental cartographers of the era: 'The atlas was claimed to be based on the best authors, particularly Cluverius, Brietius, Cellarius, Blaeu, Baudrand, Hoffman, the two Sansons, Luyts, and other geographers' (Shirley p.942). Senex was widely respected as a pre-eminent scientific publisher of his generation. He also sold globes and instruments and was sometimes employed as a surveyor. Shirley notes that maps in the New General Atlas of 1721 marked as revised by Senex are most probably derived from plates previously owned or published by the prolific London publisher and map-seller Christopher Browne (fl. 1688-1712).This marvellous map features a most attractive ornamental title to one corner featuring a reclining Ottoman gentleman with a long pipe, a Mongol swordsman and a monkey brandishing a goblet. Curiously, the route of Evert Ysbrandszoon Ides, an envoy of Tsar Peter the Great who travelled to China in 1692 is here clearly engraved.

[SCOTTI, Giulio Clemente].
Ansterdam: n.p. 1721. Duodecimo, woodcut device on title; in contemporary mottled calf gilt. First French edition of this satirical fantasy on the Jesuits, exaggerating their society as a separate world with a 'nouvelle forme de Gouvernement inconnue dans nôtre Hémisphere'.Scotti (1602-1669), an Italian from an influential patrician family and a Jesuit himself, had a turbulent career marred by a series of public quarrels with both the Order and the various universities at which he was professor. His Monarchie des Solipses (first published in Venice in 1645) takes the form of an 'ingenious satire against the Jesuits achieved by describing their society as the monarchy of Solipsia' (Gibson). Scotti's scathing account of a narcissistic society separated from the world struck a chord: indeed, his apparent invention of the word 'solipsist' to describe the Jesuits was popularly used as a derogatory term for some time after publication.The thoroughness of the work and the consistency of the allegory were widely praised, although its obscurity was a problem: 'Peu de lecteurs sont en état d'entendre le style obscur, plein d'allusions et de réticences, de cet ouvrage, qui, à part endroits curieux, n'est qu'une satire dictée par le dépit' (NBG). No doubt this accounts for the fact that this French translation is furnished with extensive notes clarifying and explaining the allusions. A very good copy.

PESTALOSSI [ Pestalozzi ] Jérôme Jean
Lyon, Frères Bruyset, 1721 ; 1 vol. in-12 (16.5 x 9.5 cm), (24), 203, (5) pp., plein veau de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, armes dorées poussées au centre des plats, filet doré dencadrement sur les plats, petites traces de frottement, roulette dorée sur les coupes, tranches jaspées, ex-libris gravé (Dr. François Jung), très bon état. Édition originale très rare, a fotiori dans cette condition. Cet ouvrage, dédicacé "à Son altesse Royale Léopold Ier, Duc de Lorraine et de Bar" est écrit de façon claire, fait très inhabituel pour l'époque. Pestalozzi est aussi plus rationnel que ses prédécesseurs et la plupart de ses contemporains. Il commence par indiquer que "c'est une erreur populaire, & un abus grossier de croire qu'il y ait des secrets universels contre cette maladie". Il prône l'observation et le raisonnement. Pestalozzi a le mérite d'indiquer que les "variations de la maladie" correspondent à des formes cliniques relevant "d'une même cause, c'est-à-dire d'un poison étranger". Comme la plupart des médecins de cette époque, il pense que la peste est due à des "corpuscules" transportés par l'air. Selon lui, ces corpuscules volatils sortent du corps des pestiférés. Pestalozzi, en opposition avec Chicoyneau, se déclare "contagioniste". Il rapporte l'histoire de la peste de Marseille et étudie les moyens de communication. Il a le mérite d'analyser la théorie des insectes énoncée par Kircher et qui fit l'objet de violentes critiques au XVIIIe siècle. Pestalozzi émet cependant deux objections à cette théorie, la fécondité et la durée de vie des insectes lui paraissant incompatib … [Click Below for Full Description]
