IMAGINARY VOYAGE - THE FIRST ANTARCTIC NOVEL.
Amsterdam, N. Etienne Lucas, 1721. Small 8vo. Nice later (ca. 1850) hcalf. Gilt spine. Titlelabel with gilt lettering. Title-page in red/black. (12),180 pp., 1 folded engraved plate with 3 figures (A,B,C). Wide-margined, clean and fine, printed on good paper. Very rare first edition - a second edition was published in Paris 1723 - published anonymously, and one of the earliest subterranean voyages and probably the first Antarctic novel. Here Antarctica is uninhabited and it describes the many natural wonders found there. The narrator is caught in a whirlpole near the North Pole - an intrance to the inner earth - and rushed through the earth to emerge at the South Pole. The work has been attributed to Ludvig Holberg, but this seems not to be the case. It was probably a source work for his Niels Klim (Nicolai Klimii iter subterraneum. 1741). "The "Relation" is probably the first fictional example of what is sometimes referred to as the "holes at the poles" version of the hollow-Earth theory." (Peter Fitting, Subterranean Worlds Antology). The most famous subterranean voyages to antedate Holberg's is Athanius Kircher's "Mundus Subterraneous" (1665), the offered "Relation" and Mouchy's "Lamékis, ou Voyages Extraordinaires d'un Egyptien dans la terre interieure" (1735-37).Variation in the collations on OCLC.

Copper engraving with a smoothed vertical fold, there brownspotted and dampstained.] "Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach (1656-1723) begründete mit seinen Bauten in Wien und Salzburg die führende Stellung des deutschen Spätbarocks in Europa. Zu seinen bedeutendsten Leistungen in Wien zählen die Karlskirche, die Bibliothek der Hofburg, das Winterpalais des Prinzen Eugen und das Palais Trautson. In Salzburg ist er vor allem mit Kirchenbauten wie der Dreifaltigkeits- und der Kollegienkirche hervorgetreten. Neben seiner europäischen Bedeutung als Architekt steht der gleichwertige Theoretiker Fischer von Erlach. Mit seinem 1721 veröffentlichten Stichwerk "Entwurff einer Historischen Architectur" führt er die Tradition der klassischen Architekturtraktate zwar fort, entwirft aber zugleich seine Vision einer Weltarchitektur, die in seinen eigenen Werken gipfelt.

Corners lightly worn, some loss to headcaps, a few chips to labels and gilt lettering to volume 3 faded, joints starting, endpapers browned, small tear to front free endpaper of volume 1, minor worm damage to front pastedown and first 4 leaves of volume 3, overall an exceptionally bright, internally clean set. 2 folding plates to volume 1. Engraved head- and tailpieces, initials, vignettes to title pages of volumes 2 and 3. First collected edition of King's periodical, presenting a valuable compilation of contemporary merchant opinion on the hotly debated negotiations towards the French commercial treaty in the wake of the War of the Spanish Succession, the principal publication in response to Defoe's Mercator. Originally printed as a twice-weekly paper in 1713-14, The British Merchant rallied opposition against the eighth and ninth commercial articles of the treaty of Utrecht, which proposed a relaxation of duties on French imports to create a more open trade with France. It ceased publication once parliament voted down the disputed articles, thus prompting the collapse of that part of the treaty. "It enjoyed at the time a large share of popularity, and was for a while referred to as a work of authority. And it continues to deserve attention from the full exposition which it gives of the opinions and reasonings then current on commercial affairs, and which led the parliame … [Click Below for Full Description]

[1721] Octavo, 13 x 21.2 x 3cm. $3,200.00Cotton Mather (1662/63-1727/28) Puritan clergyman, scholar and author, he was the eldest son of Increase Mather. "Cotton Mather was the most influential writer of his generation in America. He brought the puritan period of New England history to an end and started towards the evangelical pietism of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. His vision of Christian religion flying to America inspired nineteenth-century writers on America's manifest destiny..." Re his work with natural science: "Many of Mather's letters to England were about the natural sciences. In 1712 he sent the first of several accounts of unusual natural phenomena to John Woodward, a prominent English geologist. He followed up with letters addressed to John Waller, secretary of the Royal Society, with the hope that they be published in the society's Philosophical Transactions. From 1712 to 1724 Mather sent a total of eighty-two such letters, known collectively as `Curiosa Americana'. Many were printed in the Transactions. Mather made no secret of his wish to be included among the circle that made up the Royal Society, and was elated when news came of his election to the fellowship in 1713.

The book opens with an 86-page introduction describing Russia's history and Dutch-Russian relations. Peter's visit of 1697 was part of his "Grand Embassy", aimed at creating an anti-Ottoman alliance with European monarchs. He initially travelled disguised as a workman, leaving the mission nominally in charge of his ambassadors and living himself in a modest cottage (shown in one plate), thinking he would learn far more about Dutch advances in shipbuilding from the floor of the shipyards than in conference with statesmen. He visited Nicolaas Witsen, the wharf of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) and the famous collections of Frederik Ruysch, Jacob de Wilde, Levinus Vincent and Simon Schijnvoet. During his second embassy (1717) he bought the renowned collections of Albertus Seba, Frederik Ruysch and Levinus Vincent and had them transported to St Petersburg.

Isaac de Larrey est un historien français exilé aux Pays-Bas en raison de sa foi protestante après la révocation de l'édit de Nantes (1698). Il sera nommé historiographe des Etats-Généraux.

Ein restaurierter Einriss im linken unteren Randbereich. Der obere Rand wurde zur Stabilisierung einiger unauffälliger minimaler Randeinrisse stellenweise sehr schmal hinterlegt. *** Bemerkungen: Diese äußerst seltene und großformatige Himmelskarte wurde von Frederick de Wit entworfen und basiert auf den beiden Hemisphären, die auf Willem Blaeu's monumentaler Weltkarte "Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Tabula" von 1648 dargestellt sind. (Shirley 371) Die beiden mit aufwendigen figürlichen Sternbildern und weiteren astronomischen Details ausgestalteten Hemisphären der de Wit Karte haben einen Durchmesser von je 34 cm und werden durch sechs Diagramme ergänzt. Diese zeigen die Hypothesen von Kopernikus, Ptolemäus und Tycho Brahe, sowie die Mondphasen, den Tagesverlauf und den Gezeiteneinfluss des Mondes.

After Sanson's departure in 1692, Gaudereau continued negotiations with Suleiman, after 1694 with Husayn. Having negotiated a military and commercial alliance between Persia and the French East India Company, he returned to Isfahan, which he quit for Europe in 1703. It was during this journey from Constantinople and Trabzon that in September 1704 he contracted the illness he describes in his book, which he based on his own experience, having miraculously survived. - Fine copy, bound for Philippe d'Orléans.

Ab ca. 1690 war er als Stadtarzt in Halberstadt und genoß auch dort als Wundarzt einen ungewöhnlichen guten Ruf und bewieß seine operative Meisterschaft.

Embossed ownership stamp of William Thomas Morgan to title leaf of first work. Contents lightly tanned and occasionally foxed, else a well-preserved set. Engraved title pages, head- and tailpieces. A scarce collection of over 30 very detailed estate inventories produced during the intense scrutiny of the South Sea Company and its employees in the aftermath of the Bubble. Printed by order of the House of Commons, each inventory has a separate title leaf, pagination, and register, printing in exhaustive details the particulars of the accounts of company directors such as Huguenot financier Sir Theodore Janssen (who had been director of the Bank of England three times), Russia merchant William Astell, and John Blunt, one of the principal architects of the scheme. Also issued separately, they are more commonly found as such in institutions, ESTC locating just seven complete two-volume sets in the UK, 17 more in North America, and none elsewhere.

(DEFOE, DANIEL). - [FIRST FRENCH ROBINSON CRUSOE]
Amsterdam, Honoré et Chatelain, 1721-1720-1721. Bound in three later, uniform blue half morocco bindings with gilt spines. Light brownspotting throughout, but a nice copy, complete with all three frontispieces, three maps and 18 plates. ¶ First edition - reissue of the first volume and first issue of volumes two and three - of the first French translation of one of the most important literary works ever written. "Robinson Crusoe" marks the beginning of realistic fiction as a literary genre and is widely recognized as the first English novel. Originally published in English in 1719, the work was seen through no less than four editions before the end of its first year and went on to become one of the most widely published books in history, spawning so many imitations, not only in literature but also in film, television and radio, that its name is used to define an entire genre - the Robinsonade. By the end of the 19th century, no book in the history of Western literature had more editions, spin-offs and translations than "Robinson Crusoe", with more than 700 alternative versions of it, the French translation being among the very first. It's influence in literature is almost unparalleled.

Occasional light browning. ¶ Scarce first English edition of this famous poem on fishes and fishing. The labor of translating this Greco-Roman author was divided between Mr. Diaper and John Jones. The latter also wrote an account of Oppian's life and writings and compiled a catalogue of his fishes. Dean's Bibliography of Fishes (Dean III:295) says that "of all the ancient writers on fish and fishing, Oppian is easily the most importent". - This copy has belonged to the well-known author of "A History of British Fishes", William Yarrell, and bears his name.- Wood p. 500 - Brunet IV:196.
