        Spice Islands]

      1732 - The first map of the Spice Islands published in the Ottoman World by Muteferrika. 1732. Istanbul. Ibrahim Muteferrika. 177 x 290 mm. Original hand-color in full; small amount of verdigris oxidation along top edge, marginal tear from left edge barely affecting image, repaired with discolored tape. Rare engraved map of the famous Spice Islands (Moluccas), located north of Australia and west of New Guinea; the islands were famous for the produce of spices, which in a way ushered in the European discoveries, famously Columbus´ and Vasco de Gama, in look a for a better route to trade. The Spice Island played a significant role in the history of discoveries and navigation, as well as in the alliances and engagements between European nations for control and monopoly of trade. Included in Celebi´s famous “Mirror of the World” by Celebi, printed by Ibrahim Muteferrika, the first printed in Turkey. The Jihannuma or Mirror of the World was author by Katib Celebi (1609 – 1657), was a renowned historian, bibliographer, and geographer. Muteferrika (1674 – 1745) was born near Transylvania (Kolozsvar), he was captured by the Ottomans at a young age during his appointment as diplomat; whilst in Istanbul he became familiarized with the Turkish, their language, customs and religion, and soon became fascinated, converting into Islam. Muteferrika was a learned humanist, educated in geography, astronomy, philosophy, and economy. Sultan Ahmed III gave him license to become a printer, and thus he began the first printing press of moveable Arabic type in Turkey, under Islamic auspices. The first book printed in Turkey was Vankuli´s Kitab-i Lugat-i Vankuli; the second was Celebi´s Tuhfet ul-Kibar fi Esfar Il-Bihar (1729). The press gave birth to 17 works, until it was discontinued in 1742. Muteferrika is regarded as one of the champions of Ottoman reform of the 18th century, and the introducer of the printing press into the Ottoman Empire. [Attributes: First Edition]

Three volumes. Folio (10 by 16 inches), period-style full speckled calf, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, raised bands, red morocco spine labels. $8500.Scarce first edition in English of Augustin Calmet’s impressive biblical dictionary, illustrated with 160 copperplate engravings (over 50 double-page) depicting scriptural places, people and traditions, the Duke of Bedford's copy, very handsomely bound.A French Benedictine abbot, historian and pioneering biblical exegete, Antoine Augustin Calmet authored several key theological texts as well as this comprehensive dictionary of ""all the Proper Names mentioned in the Old or New Testament, whether of Men, Women, Cities, Countries, Rivers, Mountains &c."" In large part it collects explanatory essays from Calmet's ""epoch-making"" 1707 commentary on the Latin Vulgate, ""which treat such topics as Hebrew poetry, music, weights and measures, medicine, marriage customs, burial customs, military organization, circumcision, the Sanhedrin and Hebrew schools and sects, and are, for his time, remarkably full and judicious"" (Jewish Encyclopedia). ""Most valuable… In Volume III is a very extensive Bibliotheca Sacra [a catalogue of editions of the Bible] which… displays great erudition and research"" (Lowndes, 350). Illustrated with 160 detailed copperplate engravings, over a third of them double-page; also with engraved vignette headpiece on first text page of each volume. Title pages printed in red and black. First published in French in two folio volumes in 1720; ""a supplement (also folio) was added in 1728. An improved and enlarged edition in four folio volumes was published in 1730"" (Catholic Encyclopedia). D'Oyly, a parish vicar, and Colson, a mathematician, began their translation prior to 1730, but revised it to take account of Calmet's changes. ""The work reveals Colson's interest in arithmetic, calculations, tables and measurement"" (DNB). Armorial bookplates of John, seventh Duke of Bedford (1710-71) and John, ninth Duke of Bedford (1766-1839); the volumes hail from the library at Woburn Abbey, Scattered light foxing, occasional light marginal dampstaining. Minor loss to lower corners of a few leaves. Archival tissue repair to fore-edge of frontispiece, Volume I. Expert paper repairs to the dedication leaf and a few splits to folds on folding plates.

        Les Avantures de Jacques Sadeur dans la decouverte et le voyage de la Terre Australe...

      Amsterdam: David Mortier, 1732. Duodecimo, contemporary calf, spine panelled in gilt between raised bands. Fourth French edition, based on the Paris version of 1692.A revised edition, prepared by François Raguenet, possibly from a manuscript by Foigny himself. The dangerously heretical nature of the first edition has been tempered here by concentrating on the fabulous rather than the social and political.One of the earliest and best of all imaginary voyages to Australia, Foigny's book refers to the inhabitants of his Terre Australe as "Australiens" - the first time that the term was used to describe an inhabitant of the southern continent.Foigny (c.1650-1692) had a turbulent life. A promising career as a Franciscan monk was scotched by his 'licentious behaviour' and he was forced to flee to Geneva and Protestantism. The narrative purports to be the dying gift of the sailor Sadeur to an anonymous narrator. Twice kidnapped and four times shipwrecked, Sadeur only survives when he is plucked from the sea by a gigantic winged monster which fortuitously drops him on the shores of Western Australia. Ashore, his luck continues: as an hermaphrodite himself (the Jesuit priests called him male as a convenience) Sadeur is especially acceptable to the hermaphroditic, asexual society that he discovers. The Australians' utopian rejection of the body is responsible for their society's rationality and harmony. In this world Sadeur's curiosity and levity about the topic is considered very de trop, yet worse his 'propensity to unseemly arousal' (Rees).As in many imaginary voyages - Swift's Houhnyhyms, and their debates about the extermination of the Yahoos represent perhaps the best known example - the perfection of the community tolerates no impurities. Thus, the otherwise detached Australians are involved in a brutal war of annihilation with the Fundian 'half-men': crucially, Sadeur cannot stomach the war, a fact only complicated when 'bored by decades of sexless bliss, rational discussions and indoctrinations, athletic exercises and peaceful gardening ... [Sadeur] falls for a female among the enemy' (Friederich).This important work, which combines several major traditions, is 'a major utopia, rich in satire and iconoclasm' (Gibson) and presents a narrative response to the strict regimentation of the utopia, particularly in the context of the Pacific (Spate comments: 'in part at least a send-up of Quiros').All of the early editions of the Sadeur text are of considerable rarity: like the 1692 edition, this has only six listings in NUC. Slight wear at extremities.

        An Essay Toward the Proof of a Separate State of Souls between Death and Resurrection, and The Commencement of the Rewards of Virtue and Vice immediately after Death.

      Richard Hett, London 1732 - Hardcover. Octavo. ([4], 9-84 pp) Lovely period-style full leather binding by renowned London book-binder Bernard C. Middleton. Brown speckled calf with raised bands and gilt stamped leather title-label on spine & tooling to boards. A first edition of this unusual work by Isaac Watts (1674 – 1748), the non-conformist theologian and logician (widely recognised as the "Father of English Hymnody") in which he argues that there may be Divine relief (the "separate state" of the title) for the souls of sinners who were commonly supposed to be consigned to hell. The work was re-issued as part of his well-known book "The World to Come" in 1739. From the collection of Dr. M. H. Coleman, with his ex-libris seal blind-stamped on the front free endpaper. Although eccentrically paginated - the book starts at p. 9, with only four un-numbered pages preceding it - this matches the only collation we could find, and thus it appears complete. Title page laid down, a couple of short tears in the fore-edge margins, a tiny (pin-head) sized hole in top-corner of page 9/10, pages slightly browned, else a solid, clean VG+ copy. Extremely rare.
