An early contemporary history of the Indian nations of Canada and their relations with the French and English, written by a French naval officer serving in Hudson's Bay and New France between 1697 and 1714. Bacqueville's epistolary account derives chiefly from his own observations of the capture of Fort Nelson and Frontenac's administration, and also summarizes the earlier stewardship of Denonville, the French establishment on the St. Lawrence, the Hudson's Bay expeditions, and the Iroquois Nation's method of making war and contracting alliances. "This work relates entirely to Canada and the Iroquois Indians; the plates comprise the earliest views taken in Canada" (Sabin).

FÉNELON, Francois de Salignac de la Mothe.
Edinburgh: Printed for Mr. William Monro, 1722. Small octavo (140 x 91 mm), disbound from a pamphlet volume. Recent grey paper boards, title label to front board printed in black. A fine copy. First edition of the Roman Catholic archbishop, theologian, and poet's collection of aphorisms, published posthumously. It is likely to be a translation of "Maximes morales et politiques" from Les Aventures de Télémaque, Fénelon's hugely popular didactic novel first published anonymously in 1699 and reissued under his name in 1717. Télémaque, his scathing critique of the autocratic government of Louis XIV, recommends the introduction of a parliamentary system and the abolition of the mercantile system. It has been described as "the first prose poem in French" (Harvey and Heseltine, p. 270). See Sir Paul Harvey and J. E. Heseltine, The Oxford Companion to French Literature (Oxford: The Clarendon Press, 1959). [Attributes: First Edition]

Title printed in red & black. 11 p.l., 400, [37] pp. 8vo, cont. vellum over boards (light browning & foxing). Ulm: D. Bartholomai, 1722. First edition. Hoffmann (1660-1742), whom Hirsch calls "one of the heroes of German medicine in the 18th century," was "a leading medical systematist of the first half of the eighteenth century...he became a highly influential teacher and practicing physician in Germany, systematizing coherently the Galenic, iatromechanical, and iatrochemical aspects of the phenomena of health and disease."-D.S.B., VI, p. 458. In the present work, Hoffmann offers a collection of medical and dietetic instructions developed to improve health. He provides a long description of Hungarian wines and their medical uses. He also recommends bathing in mineral waters. Very good copy of an uncommon book. ❧ Arents 526-"The learned doctor considers the correct use of snuff important enough to entitle the subject to a separate chapter." Hirsch, III, pp. 256-59.
