        Calling Deputy Governor Markham to Run the Dividing Line Between Pennsylvania and Maryland

      1682. No binding. Fine. Manuscript Document Signed. To William Markham. ""Upland"" [Chester, Pa.]. June 12, 1682. 1 page. Offered with Inventory# 21752, described below. ""... there are ffour Comissionrs who by the order & command of ye said Lord [Baltimore], have beene & are waiting ... ever since ye tenth day instant, for ye Running ye Division Lyne...""Sandelands and Wade, two members of Pennsylvania's first Provincial Council, alert Deputy Governor Markham of the arrival of Lord Baltimore's commissioners to Augustine Hermann's estate, near the disputed border between Maryland and Pennsylvania. Baltimore's commissioners sought to locate the 40th degree of latitude, the dividing line established by King Charles I's original charter for Maryland. Markham did not come, choosing to wait for Penn's arrival, most likely because he knew that an accurate measurement of the 40˚ line would deprive Pennsylvania of an outlet on the Chesapeake, and perhaps cause them to lose Philadelphia. Complete Transcript Upland [now Chester] June 12th, 1682May it please ye GovernorHere being a Messenger this day come to Upland with Letters from ye Lord Baltamore for you, which messenger also acquainting us that there are ffour Comissionrs who by the order & comand of ye said Lord, have beene & are waiting at Augustine Hermons in Bohemia River ever since ye tenth day instant, for ye Running ye Division Lyne; which being unexpectedly done in yor absence; by reason (as it seems) yt ye messenger by you sent to ye Lord came with yor message to him three days after ye Comissions was come forth from ye Lord; it is therefore expected by ye Comiss[loss] that you will hasten to them; In order whereunto wee have given ye trouble of these Lynes, yt when you understand ye case, you may doo as ye concerne requires; wee have alsoe in yor absence taken ye boldness to write a few Lynes p ye messenger to ye Comissionrs to desire their patience a while until yor company may reasonably bee expected; which with or due service to you is all needful at prsent; who remayne Yor Reall friends to Comand James Sandelands Robert Wade[penciled over later:] Direction / ""This for Govr William Markham / Present / Haste:[in different script at bottom:] By the indorsement it appears that this letter together with Lord Baltes was sent to Govr.

S.H.[docket:] This / ffor Goveor William Markham / present / Hast[docket in Markham's hand:] James Sa[nde]lands / & Robt Wades Lettr / Sent by George Wyman / to New York wth My Lord / Baltemors Letter -Historical BackgroundThe Stuart Restoration, beginning in 1660 with the accession of Charles II, was characterized by stricter management of colonial affairs in North America. Britain began to enforce the Navigation Acts, aimed to stop commerce between its colonists and foreign nations, and in 1664, conquered the Dutch colony of New Netherland. King Charles II gave control over Dutch North America, including the present states of New York, New Jersey, Delaware, and Pennsylvania, to his brother, the Duke of York (future King James II). New York, the Duke's province, established as a royal colony, was in many ways a model for Britain's new imperialism.To further his political interests and pay off family debts, the Duke of York granted East and West Jersey as proprietary colonies to two well-placed English nobles, Lord John Berkeley and Sir George Carteret. Then, in 1681, Charles granted 45,000 square miles west of the Delaware River to William Penn to form the visionary colony of Pennsylvania (""Penn's Woods"").The cause of imperial regularity was weakened for many decades by a longstanding dispute between William Penn and Lord Baltimore over the boundary between Pennsylvania and Maryland. Maryland's original charter of 1632 named the 40th parallel as its northern boundary. Pennsylvania's charter of 1681 declared that it would be bounded ""on the South by a Circle drawne at twelve miles distance from... (See website for full description)

        DIALING: plain, concave, convex, projective, reflective, refractive,

      London, printed for Awnsham Churchill, 1682.. Shewing, how to make all such dials, and to adorn them with all useful furniture, relating to the course of the sun. Performed, arithmetically, geometrically, instrumentally and mechanically: and illustrated by sculptures, engraven in copper. Comprised in XI. distinct tractates, the contents whereof follow next after the Preface to the Reader. Collected, methodised and published by William Leybourn. FIRST EDITION 1682 of expanded version of Leybourn's Art of Dialling first published in (1669), small folio, approximately 300 x 210 mm, 12 x 8 inches, portrait frontispiece, 23 engraved plates, of which 10 folding, plus 3 engravings in the text, pages: [10], 76, 89-188, [13], 189-192, 12, 181-226, 273-330, pagination is somewhat irregular but register is continuous. Bound in full early calf, rebacked to style with raiswed bands and gilt lettered morocco label, new endpapers, all edges red. Boards slightly worn and rubbed with a few scratches and minor stains, neat repair to 2 corners, margins of frontispiece and title page very lightly marked, lower corner of title page thumbed, lower margins throughout faintly damp stained to varying degrees, most noticeable on the last 13 leaves, a few pale brown stains to upper margin of page 69. A very good copy of the rare expanded edition, complete with all plates and housed in a fine sturdy custom made cloth bound clamshell box, with gilt lettered leather label to spine. William Leybourn (1626-1719) mathematician, was in his time a distinguished land and quantity surveyor (although he began his working life as a printer). Such was his prestige, he was frequently employed to survey the estates of gentlemen, and he also helped to survey the remnants of London after the great fire of 1666. A prolific and eclectic author, his work The Compleat Surveyor, which was first published under that title in 1653 is regarded as a classic of its kind and (in collaboration with one Vincent Wing) the 1649 volume Urania Practica, was the first book in English devoted to astronomy. In our book in the address To The Reader (August 1681) Leybourn explains the sources for some of the text: 'Of the first tractate, the examples are all (or most of them) the same as are Mr. Wells in his Sciographia ... The second tractate was, partly a translation out of Magnon, by Mr. Thomas Gibson: and the third is partly Mr. Samuel Foster's ... The seventh tractate came to my hands in a Latine manuscript of Mr. Samuel Fosters, written with his own hand in anno 1640 ... The ninth tractate is wholly Mr. Samuel Fosters ... The tenth tractate also, is wholly his, and was ... transcribed from a manuscript of his, which he ... entituled Gold ... The eleventh tractate ... is Mr. Fosters also'.

Krafft, der die Wundersubstanz 1677 u. a. am englischen Hof präsentierte. Dort war auch Boyle anwesend, der in den folgenden Jahren versuchte, die leuchtende Materie selbst herzustellen. 1680 war er erfolgreich und publizierte seine Ergebnisse in der englischen Erstausgabe "The Aerial Noctiluca...". Übersetzt wurde sie von Johann Lange, der seine Initialen im Titel durch den Zusatz M. C. (Medicinae Candidatum) ergänzte. - Neu gebundenes Exemplar, die Deckel mit blindgeprägtem Zierrahmen.

Heckscher 1445; Sage pp147-148; "Nobbes is commonly called The father of trollers' but from this honourific title, we are by no means to infer that he was the earliest writer on that branch of the sport. He was the earliest, indeed, that discoursed at large, and in a substantial shape, on it, the earliest authoritative professor, but Venables proceeded him, and also Walton, . etc.".

Zur Datierung: folgt man der Vermutung von Campbell, dann ist für den Erstdruck dieser Karte der Zeitraum von 1679 bis 1682 anzusetzen, denn im Jahr 1682 erhielt Nivolaus Visscher II das Druckprivileg von Holland und Westfriesland ( s. Koemann III, S. 152 ). Hier vorliegend mit dem Druckprivileg, daher nach 1682 zu datieren. - Als Druckplatte wurde die schon von Cl.J.

Sometime before 1690 Harris published 'The New-England Primer', adapted from his earlier, savagely political speller, 'The Protestant Tutor' (1679); the primer was for half a century the only elementary textbook in America.

        1682 John Oldham Satire Against Jesuits Popish Plot Poetry English Poems Juvenal

      London: Printed for Joseph Hindmarsh 1682. Second edition. - 1682 John Oldham Satire Against Jesuits Popish Plot Poetry English Poems Juvenal “While some no other cause for life can give, but a dull habitude to live.” – John Oldham, Memory of Norwent John Oldham was a 17th-century English satirist and poet whose poems reflect the Satires of Juvenal. While in Surrey in 1679, Oldham composed his satirical poems against the Jesuits, a collection of short verses that were condescending and trite, written during a time when anger was readily stirred up against the Catholics for the ‘Popish Plot’. According to Allibone, “These satires form a very curious work, and contain an immense number of stories and allusions to the Golden League. Oldham, far superior [to other poets], ranks perhaps next to Dryden: he is spirited and pointed” This book, published by Hindmarsh in London, includes four works by Oldham, each with separate titles. These works were printed and published as one (in 1684), rather than separately published then rebound.

      sumptibus Leonardi Chouet & Soc.,, Genevae, 1682 - In 4°; due opere in un volume: 8 , 264 pp. e 4 c. di tav.; 153 (i.e. 155), 13 pp. e 2 c. di tav. (le due tavole del secondo volume si trovano erroneamente legate all'interno del primo volume che così contiene 6 tavole invece di 4 come attestato anche dalla didascalia esplicativa riportata nelle tavole stesse). Comunque i due volumi sono completi ed in buone condizioni di conservazione. Legatura novecentesca in cartoncino molle. Alcune leggere bruniture in alcune pagine dovute alla qualità della carta e presenti in tutte le copie di quest'opera. Minima mancanza all'angolo superiore bianco di pagina 59, 61 e di una tavola (ininfluenti). Prima edizione latina di quello che è considerato il primo periodico medico. L'opera vide pubblicati solo i primi 3 anni (qui sono presenti il secondo e terzo anno). Si dice che fu proprio lo "Zodiacus medico-gallicus" che diede a Bayle l'idea delle "Nouvelles de la Republique des Letteres". Inizialmente l'opera uscì il primo anno in francese con il titolo "Nouvelles découvertes sur toutes les parties de la médecine" ma ben presto venne prima tradotta in tedesco e poi in latino, unica lingua con cui proseguì la sua esistenza. Il latino permise infatti al periodico di uscire per altri due anni potendo raggiungere un pubblico più ampio di lettori. All’inizio di ogni capitolo presente inciso il segno zodiacale del mese di riferimento. Anche se l'esperienza dello Zodiacus fu breve esso aprì la strada alla pubblicazioni periodiche a carattere medico-divulgativo che caratterizzarono la fine del XVII° secolo e l'inizio del XVIII° e proseguirono fino ad oggi. Nicolas de Blegny (Chaumont-en-Bassigny 1646 circa - Avignone 1722); fu valente medico (specializzato nello studio delle malattie veneree) e chirurgo personale dei reali di Francia e si interessò anche di storia e letteratura. Durante la sua avventurosa vita fu poi imprigionato per dieci anni nel castello di Angers, per aver fondato un falso ospedale per stranieri, in realtà luogo di malaffare. Blegny, come ricorda il Garrison-Morton fu il primo francese a dare un contributo importante alla medicina forense. All'interno dell'opera sono riportate alcune delle più importanti scoperte scientifiche del 1680 e 1681. Gli indici dei due volumi si trovano ambedue alla fine del secondo volume. fra i vari capitoli ne troviamo dedicati alle febbri, alle acque minerali, a problemi urologici, alla natura dei denti e alle loro malattie e patologie e al modo di curarli, a casi ginecologici o a bambini nati con malformazioni terribili, ma anche a curiosità fisico-naturali come la colorazione dei coralli, la filosofia dei colori e alcune sperimentazioni sui colori, studi su alcuni animali rari arrivati dall'Africa o su nuovi tipi di funghi, su una balena. Gli ultimi due capitoli sono assai curiosi e riportano, uno, alcune teorie relative ai folletti ed alla parte data loro nella tradizione francese ed irlandese nella creazione del "genio" e l'altro è dedicato ad una teoria sulle comete. Opera in buone condizioni di conservazione e assai rara. Rif. Bibl.: Caillet I, 1224; Garrison-Morton 1725; Waller I, 1133; Wellcome II,180.

        Specimen Medicinae Sinicae…

Title printed in red & black. 2 p.l., 48, 99, [9], 54 pp., one blank leaf, 16 pp. Small 4to, fine antique mottled calf (some browning as is usual with this book), spine richly gilt. Frankfurt: J. Zubrodt, 1682. First edition of the first illustrated book on Chinese medicine published in the West, and the second European book on Chinese medicine, preceded only by an anonymous 12mo tract (1671) which contained only the briefest summary of Chinese medical principles with no illustrations. Cleyer's work was the first European book on Chinese medicine to attract significant attention, and the first book to acquaint Europeans with Chinese medical charts. Cleyer's text included a thorough discussion of Chinese theories of the pulse in health, together with theories of acupuncture. The book also contains the first acupuncture charts published in the West. "The book has four main sections: 1. four books by Wang Chu-Ho on the pulse (approximately 200 B.C.); 2. a treatise on the aspects of the tongue in different diseases; 3. an exposition of different drugs prepared by the missionaries, as directed by Chinese authors; and 4. a richly illustrated collection of woodcuts depicting the Chinese doctrine of the pulse and the diagnostic mapping of the tongue, as well as 30 copperplates of Chinese anatomical charts."-Sim, The Heritage of Anesthesia, p. 296. Very good copy. ❧ Garrison-Morton 6492.

      London, printed for Awnsham Churchill, 1682. Shewing, how to make all such dials, and to adorn them with all useful furniture, relating to the course of the sun. Performed, arithmetically, geometrically, instrumentally and mechanically: and illustrated by sculptures, engraven in copper. Comprised in XI. distinct tractates, the contents whereof follow next after the Preface to the Reader. Collected, methodised and published by William Leybourn. FIRST EDITION 1682 of expanded version of Leybourn's Art of Dialling first published in (1669), small folio, approximately 300 x 210 mm, 12 x 8 inches, portrait frontispiece, 23 engraved plates, of which 10 folding, plus 3 engravings in the text, pages: [10], 76, 89-188, [13], 189-192, 12, 181-226, 273-330, pagination is somewhat irregular but register is continuous. Bound in full early calf, rebacked to style with raiswed bands and gilt lettered morocco label, new endpapers, all edges red. Boards slightly worn and rubbed with a few scratches and minor stains, neat repair to 2 corners, margins of frontispiece and title page very lightly marked, lower corner of title page thumbed, lower margins throughout faintly damp stained to varying degrees, most noticeable on the last 13 leaves, a few pale brown stains to upper margin of page 69. A very good copy of the rare expanded edition, complete with all plates and housed in a fine sturdy custom made cloth bound clamshell box, with gilt lettered leather label to spine. William Leybourn (1626-1719) mathematician, was in his time a distinguished land and quantity surveyor (although he began his working life as a printer). Such was his prestige, he was frequently employed to survey the estates of gentlemen, and he also helped to survey the remnants of London after the great fire of 1666. A prolific and eclectic author, his work The Compleat Surveyor, which was first published under that title in 1653 is regarded as a classic of its kind and (in collaboration with one Vincent Wing) the 1649 volume Urania Practica, was the first book in English devoted to astronomy. In our book in the address To The Reader (August 1681) Leybourn explains the sources for some of the text: 'Of the first tractate, the examples are all (or most of them) the same as are Mr. Wells in his Sciographia ... The second tractate was, partly a translation out of Magnon, by Mr. Thomas Gibson: and the third is partly Mr. Samuel Foster's ... The seventh tractate came to my hands in a Latine manuscript of Mr. Samuel Fosters, written with his own hand in anno 1640 ... The ninth tractate is wholly Mr. Samuel Fosters ... The tenth tractate also, is wholly his, and was ... transcribed from a manuscript of his, which he ... entituled Gold ... The eleventh tractate ... is Mr. Fosters also'.

Legatura in piena marocco cioccolato grani lunghi ca 1860. nervi Indietro lavorato. Parte del titolo e del numero del volume in marocchino rosso. I piatti decorati con diverse reti e rulli di coaching e una vasta fregio floreale. Friesland Indoor. bordi dorati. Carta perfetta freschezza, eventualmente lavato. Molto bella copia non firmata legante master. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, assez rare. Une vignette de titre et une figure in texte. Reliure en plein maroquin à grains long chocolat ca 1860. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge. Plats décorés de plusieurs filets et roulettes d'encadrement et d'une large frise florale. Frise intérieure. Tranches dorées. Papier d'une fraîcheur parfaite, possiblement lavé. Très bel exemplaire en reliure de maître non signée. La seule espèce désigne la communion par le pain ou le vin. C'est en 1681 que Pierre Jurieu publia son traité sur la communion en une seule espèce au nom du protestantisme. Un an plus tard, Bossuet écrivait un traité rigoureux en prouvant pas des causes certaines que l'église pratiquait l'Eucharistie sous une ou deux espèces sans qu'on ait jamais songé que la soustraction de l'une ou de l'autre nuisit à l'intégrité du sacrement. l'auteur montre qu'il n'y a d'indispensable dans les sacrements que ce qui tient à leur substance ; qu'ainsi l'on n'est pas obligé de faire en les administrant tout ce qu'a fait le Sauveur en les instituant. Le Traité de la Communion, dit Bayle, « m'a paru fort délicat, fort spirituel, et d'une honnêteté envers nous qui ne peut être assez louée ; serré, judicieux, il est déchargé de tout ce qui ne fait pas à la question. » Il n'en résulte pas moins que Bossuet fut ensuite attaqué par plusieurs écrits protestants, et qu'il y eut au XVIIe une véritable querelle autour de cette question pratique du sacrement.

        Carte de la decouverte faite l'an dans l'Amerique Septentrionale

      1682 - The first separate map of the Mississippi River, in its very first publication. 1682. Paris. Louis Jolliet. 393 x 165 mm. Trimmed a little close at the bottom edge, with latitude numbers just touching the edge of the paper in a few places. 35,000 $ The First Map of the Mississippi River, based upon the cartographic renderings of Jolliet and Marquette, published in Thevenot’s Recueil de Voyages in 1682. It became the earliest separate map to depict the expedition of Louis Jolliet and Father Jacques Marquette down the Mississippi River. In 1663, the French government began a more systematized effort to search for furs, minerals, and a shorter route to China. The initial objective was locating the Mississippi River, whose existence was known through Indian reports. An expedition was sent out under the command of Louis Jolliet, a fur trader and explorer, and the Jesuit Father Jacques Marquette. Jolliet and Marquette left Green Bay in May 1673, and by following the courses of the Fox and Wisconsin rivers, reached the upper Mississippi River. Continuing south, they discovered the mouths of the Missouri, Ohio, and Arkansas rivers, before turning back out of fear of encountering a Spanish force. On the return trip, they found a short cut to Lake Michigan by following the Illinois and Des Plaines rivers to a portage at Chicago. Several manuscript maps survive based on the discoveries of the Jolliet and Marquette expedition. This map was first adapted for inclusion in Melchisedech Thevenot’s Recueil des Voyages, Paris, 1681. It shows for the first time on a printed map the Mississippi and its tributaries north of the Arkansas based upon first-hand observation. The depiction of the river between the Arkansas and the gulf is based on speculation. It is also the first map to include the place name Michigan (“Mitchigami”). A second edition of the map (with a different title) appeared in the rare 1689 German translation of Hennepin’s Description de la Louisiane, to which Thevenot’s account of Jolliet and Marquette’s expedition was appended. Both editions of the map are rare. The cartography in the second edition is identical to the first, but in the second state the title and one or two legends have been translated from French into Latin. The Jolliet map is very rare on the market. While the book appears occasionally, this is only the second example of the map we have seen on the market in the past 15 years.

Zur Datierung: folgt man der Vermutung von Campbell, dann ist für den Erstdruck dieser Karte der Zeitraum von 1679 bis 1682 anzusetzen, denn im Jahr 1682 erhielt Nivolaus Visscher II das Druckprivileg von Holland und Westfriesland ( s. Koemann III, S. 152 ). Hier vorliegend mit dem Druckprivileg, daher nach 1682 zu datieren. - Als Druckplatte wurde die schon von Cl.J. Visscher hergestellte Platte genommen, nur wurde die Staffage komplett verändert ( die 4 Stadtansichten wurden herausgepunzt und im oberen Bereich durch Kartuschen ersetzt. Reste der ursprünglichen Beschriftung sind noch erkennbar ). Der Karteninhalt sonst mit der bereits 1630 erschienenen Karte identisch. - Oben links die Titelkartusche, oben rechts ein Meilenanzeiger.
