Binding tight and firm. A good copy only of Volume one. Originally published between 1677 and 1680 in 14 numbered parts which are divided up into 4 sections each with title page dated 1693 or 1694. In addition 9 parts have their own simple dated title page (divisional title pages, not called for in part 14 which is an explanation of terms used). One divisional title page at page 115 has been misplaced and should be at page 195. Otherwise our copy collates exactly as ESTC R25166. The four sections are: Smithing (1693, 3 parts), Joinery (1694, 3 parts), House-carpentry (1694, 3 parts), Turning (1694, 5 parts). The second volume was concerned solely with printing. Joseph Moxon (1627-1700) was a London dealer and printer, specialising in mathematical books and instruments, a globe maker, amateur in the mechanical arts, hydrographer to Charles II providing maps and charts for royal use, and Fellow of the Royal Society, the first tradesman to be so elected. He produced the first English language dictionary devoted to mathematics. In his Mechanical Exercises he sets out to describe the chief trades of the day with illustrations of machinery, tools, furnaces, locks, plans etc. It is one of the earliest English books to describe and illustrate the tools of various trades and explain their uses. See: Sotheby's, The Library of the Earls of Macclesfield, Part Five, page 241; Christie's, The Haskell Norman Library of Science and Medicine, Part II, page 340, No 687, collating the same as our copy; Diana H.

      Printed for R. Bentley, London 1693 - Pp. [16], 469, [3, ads]. Contemporary plain full panelled calf, rebacked at some point, god and strong, with a little general wear and some rubbing, corners more worn and rounded, but firm. Contents clean and tight; good margins; title page strengthened along hinge with Japanese tisse. Contemporary engraved armorial bookplate to the verso of the title page above which written in manuscript '11. Apr. 1728 Collated & perfect.' A very good copy. [As its subtitles suggest, this was a work of synthesis rather than direct and original observation. Blount was a tireless reader and accumulator of other writers’ wisdom - his most notable work, Censura Celebrorum Authorum (1690), was a collection of things famous authors had said about each other and in this work he brings together observations from a wide range of contemporary authorities, accommodating them in an overall argument which reflects a belief in the divine authorship of the universe. As he writes in his preface, ‘Every Flower of the Field, every Fibre of a Plant, every Particle of an Insect, carries with it the Impress of its Maker, and can (if duly consider’d) read us Lectures of Ethicks or Divinity’. Among the aspects of natural history(amber, coral, tea and coffee, silver, diamonds, glow-worms, spiders etc.) that Blount considers are ‘VULCANO’s, or SUBTERRANEAN FIRES’ - Admin (Dr Ralph Harrington); Volcanism Blog.] Size: 12mo (10 x 16cm) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Der Ninivitische Buß-Spiegel, Aus der Wunder-Geschicht Des Propheten Jonae, Vorgestellet, Durch Antenorn, einen Liebhaber des Worts Gottes (d.i. J. B. Schupp).

      - O.O., Dr. u. J. (Hamburg, Liebezeit?, ca. 1693). 478 S. Etwas späterer Leder mit Rückenschild u. Stehkantenvergoldung (etwas berieben, Vorsätze angestaubt u. fleckig). Dritte und umfangreichste Ausgabe des posthum erschienenen Werkes. Mit Ninive ist in dieser auch biographisch interessanten Schrift Hamburg gemeint. Schupp (1610-61) war einer der größten Kanzelredner seiner Zeit. 1648 hatte er die Dankespredigt aus Anlaß des Westfälischen Friedensschlusses gehalten und war dann einem Ruf in das relativ unzerstörte Hamburg als Pastor der Hauptkirche St. Jacobi gefolgt. Der Reiz seiner Predigten bestand darin, daß er ins volle Leben griff, "drastische Beispiele gebrauchte, einen volkstümlichen, derben Ton anschlug, aber nicht Polemik im herkömmlichen Sinne trieb. Dogmatisch orthodox, aber reformfreudig, ist Schupp nicht nur wegen seiner Predigten, sondern vor allem wegen einer Reihe populärer Schriften ('Freund in der Not', 'Salomo oder Regentenspiegel' und der erst posthum veröffentlichte 'Ninivitische Bußspiegel') von seinen Hamburger Amtsbrüdern heftig angefeindet worden" (RGG V, 1584). - VD 17 39:142753Z; Dünnhaupt 84.3; Bircher B 5922. - Vorgebunden ein verwandtes Werk von Schupps Nachfolger als Hauptpastor der Jacobikirche: J. F. MAYER. Hamburgisches Ninive, Das ist: Buß-Andachten über den Propheten Jonam, Der Hamburgischen Gemeine Gottes zu St. Jacob in denen ordentlichen Freytags-Predigten fürgetragen. Hamburg, C. Neumann für G. Liebezeit, 1693. Gest. Titelporträt, 4 Bl., 480 S., 4 Bl. - Der 40 Jahre jüngere Johann Friedrich Mayer (1650-1712) galt wie sein Vorgänger als einer der wortgewaltigsten Prediger seiner Zeit. Als Repräsentant der lutherischen Orthodoxie sah er seine Aufgabe vor allem im Kampf gegen die Pietisten, Mystiker und Schwärmer, die in Hamburg Fuß gefaßt hatten - "ein streitsüchtiger, vom Gefühl geistiger Überlegenheit besessener, scharfsinniger, hochgelehrter und leidenschaftlicher Mann, der seine freie Kanzel als einzigartiges Asyl freimütiger Kritik gegen jedermann verteidigte" (H. Reincke zitiert nach G. Daur, Von Predigern u. Bürgern 109). - VD 17 39:142741C (ohne Porträt); Schröder V, 119, 142; Bircher B 4839; Slg. Böhme 404. - Durchgehend gebräunt u. teilw. fingerfleckig.

         WITH FINE PLATES BY HOLLAR: The institution, laws & ceremonies of the most noble Order of the Garter.

      London: printed for Thomas Dring, at the Harrow, at the corner of Chancery-Lane in Fleetstreet 1693 - Folio; [12], 720, [104] pp. In contemporary panelled full leather (with only the lightest of wear), respined and recornered in matching leather over six raised spine bands with gilt lettered title direct to spine in second compartment and gilt date to foot of spine. Portrait frontispiece by W.Sherwin and 15 plates by Wenceslaus Hollar (12 double-page, one with a small hole at inner fold), numerous additional woodcuts in-text. Two old ownership labels to front pastedown (engraved heraldic label of John Sneyd of Keele Hall, Staffordshire, and later label of Col. Philip Catt O.B.E), with front and rear pastedowns consisting of printer's waste (sheets from a roughly contemporaneous continental edition of Ovid). Additional earlier title page to the 1672 edition printed in red and black and bound between frontispiece and true title page. Small ink stain to bottom corner of additional title-page, occasional feint browning and unobtrusive stains but overall a clean and very attractive example. Written by Ashmole largely in the mid 1660's whilst staying in the country to avoid the plague in London, the Order of the Garter brings together his characteristic scholastic rigour with wonderful depictions by Wenceslaus Hollar including the celebrated aerial views of St.George's Windsor and the stunning engraving of a firework display at the investiture of Charles XI of Sweden in 1668. Very good copy of this most attractive edition. ESTC R497, citing 3xUS copies only. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Antique Print-GALWAY BAY-LIMERICK-IRELAND-SEACHART-Jaillot-Mortier-1693

      - Antique print, titled: 'Carte particuliere des costes occidentales d'Irlande qui comprend la Baye de Galloway et la riviere de Lymerick [.]' - (Map of the western coasts of Ireland, which includes the Galway Bay and the Limerick river.) With and inset map: "Carte du Port de Kinsal en Irlande." (Map of the harbour of Kinsale in Ireland.) Fine large overview coastal map / seachart of parts of Ireland. Depth soundings are marked along the coasts, and sandbanks indicated It includes 5 distance scales, rhumb lines with three decorative compass roses. Engraving on handlaid (verge type) paper. Watermark: Eagle with lettering. "Description: From: 'La Neptune Francois [ ]', by Jaillot, published in Amsterdam by Pieter Mortier. First published in 1693-1708 as a result of an initiative by the minister Colbert. The charts in this Atlas are considered as some of the most beautiful printed charts ever produced. Map subsequently incorporated into the publications under Bellin for the Depot de la Marine. State: We do not know the exact ed. of this map. It lacks the Royal privilige on the early ed. and the seal of the Depot de la Marine on later ed. edited and published by Jacques Nicolas Bellin. Original full size Atlas sheet.Artists and Engravers: Made by an anonymous engraver after 'Alexis Hubert Jaillot'. Cartographer: Alexis-Hubert Jaillot (1632-1712), was a French cartographer. He married the daughter of the 'enlumineur de la Reine', Nicholas Berey and inherited thus a map and print publishing firm. When Nicolas Sanson, the premier French cartographer of his days, died he negotiated to republish much of his work. He re-published many of Sanson's maps on a larger scale. His maps were admired for their beautiful cartouches. In 1686 he was awarded the title of Geographe du Roi by Louis XIV. Jailliot was succeed by his son, Bernard Jean Hyacinthe Jaillot (1673-1739), grandson, Bernard Antoine Jaillot (died 1749) and the latter's brother-in-law, Jean Baptiste-Michel Renou de Chauvigne-Jaillot (1710-1780). Publisher: Pieter / Pierre Mortier (1661-1711). The 18th century Dutch map trade could build on their reputation that originated from the Golden Age much longer than was assumed until now. The Amsterdam publishing company Covens & Mortier (1685-1866) has played an important part in this process. Most likely this company was the largest map trader of his days. Thousand of maps were brought on the market by Covens & Mortier, often edited from earlier sources and all members of this firm were gifted with a great commercial talent. Pieter and David Mortier were booksellers in Paris from 1681-1685 and have published a wide range of geographical works. After Pieter's death, his widow continued the business until their son Cornelius took over in 1721. Cornelius started a partnership with his brother-in-law Johannes / Jean Covens and established the famous publishing house "Covens and Mortier" in Amsterdam. They have re-issued Atlases of Sanson, de l'Isle, Visscher and de Wit." Condition: Very good, given age. Original middle fold as issued. A few small tears in paper edges, backed. Some light staining / soiling. Some creasing. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully. Storage location: Overasselt The overall size is ca. 36.2 x 24.4 inch. The image size is ca. 33.9 x 23.6 inch. The overall size is ca. 92 x 62 cm. The image size is ca. 86 x 60 cm.

         Carte Generale des Costes D'Irlande, et des Costes Occidentales D'Angleterre avec une Partie de celles D'Ecosse

      Levà e et Gravà e Pare Ordre Exprez du Roy, A. Paris, 1693. - Copper engraved with hand colour 595 x 855 mm A first edition of this impressive sea chart of Ireland and the western coasts of Scotland and England, with an inset map of River Dee at Chester from Le neptune François. Moriter's plates were later acquired by the French Depot De La Marine and republished. This is an early state of this map still retaining the Ordre du Roy and Paris 1693 publication line. Pieter Mortier (1661â€"1711) was an 18th-century mapmaker and engraver from the Northern Netherlands. Mortier was born in Leiden. According to Houbraken, David van der Plas worked with him on etchings for Bybelsche Tafereelen (Bible stories), published in Amsterdam in 1700. He was the father of Cornelis Mortier (1699-1783), who in partnership with Johannes Covens I (1697-1774) began the map publishing company Covens & Mortier (1721-1866). He travelled to Paris in 1681-1685 and won the privilege in 1690 of publishing maps and atlases by French publishers in Amsterdam. He used this privilege to win a similar set of privileges for printing an "illustrated print bible" in 1700. He died in Amsterdam. Condition: On two joined sheets as issued. Printer's crease lower left in rhumb lines. Time toning to verso. [Attributes: First Edition]

The first French encyclopaedia, originally printed and published in Paris by Estienne in 1553.From the library of Dutch theologian Johannes Henricus Scholten (1811-1885): tipped in before the title-page is a leaf printed with a prize announcement of the Latin School at Delft with Scholten's name inserted by hand, signed by the Rector A.W.

A bit of wear to edges of covers. Very good indeed.

      Paris. 1693. - Six volumes. Quarto. Contemporary speckled calf, spines gilt with leather labels. Light wear to hinges and spines; corners rubbed. Bookplates on front pastedowns. Light scattered foxing. A very good set. This massive compilation is the first major collection of French treaties, beginning in 1435 and running to 1692, including many treaties relating to America. Many important French state papers appeared here for the first time, especially those from the 15th and 16th centuries. It was not until the early 17th century that published versions of treaties began to appear simultaneously with the event, and even then treaties between kings were often secret, or contained secret sections, for decades. Thus, the Leonard set offers either first or very early printings of many documents of the greatest importance, including a number that are important for the Americas. The NUC entry for this work describes it in six volumes and locates five sets. Sabin states the work consists of six regular volumes plus two additional volumes of twenty- nine treaties with separate titlepages for each, covering treaties from 1697 to 1719. This set includes the original six volumes published in 1693, and is complete in and of itself. Frances Davenport identifies eleven treaties for which the Leonard set provides the first or first French printing between 1556 and 1684, as follows: 1) Davenport 20. Treaty between France and Spain, 1556, by which the French agreed to stay out of Spanish America and the Spanish agreed to leave alone French fisheries off the North American coast. 2) Davenport 22. Treaty between France and Spain, 1585. A similar agreement to keep France out of the Indies. 3) Davenport 26. Treaty between France and England, 1603. This treaty was made while England and Spain were still at war, and arranged for the French and British to take concerted action, with England raising a fleet to attack the Spanish New World dominions. It became a dead letter when James I made peace with Spain the next year. 4) Davenport 29. A defensive alliance between the Netherlands, France and England, in which the latter two agreed not to interfere with Dutch trade in the New World. 5) Davenport 32. Treaty between the Netherlands and France, agreeing not to interfere with each other's trade in the New World. 6) Davenport 34. Treaty between England and France settling the brief war between the powers of 1627-28. In this war the British had seized much of New France, including Quebec, which was restored with the peace. 7) Davenport 36. Treaty between Great Britain and France (St. Germain-en-laye). This treaty followed up Davenport 34, above, and called for the specific restoration of all of Canada; England gave up Nova Scotia reluctantly, and only in the face of French naval superiority. 8) Davenport 37. Treaty between France and Portugal, 1641. Portugal, having won independence back from Spain, agrees to cooperate with the French and Dutch against Spain in the New World. 9) Davenport 68. Agreement between Spain and the Netherlands, made by Spain in an attempt to defend its New World possessions. 10) Davenport 73. Cessation of hostilities in America between France and Sweden on one hand, and Denmark and Brandenburg on the other, 1679. This war had involved battles between the West Indian possessions of all powers, and restored the status quo while allowing free trade in West Indian ports. 11) Davenport 77. Treaty between Spain and France, 1684 (Ratisbon). This treaty supposedly brought peace between the Spanish and French throughout the world, but was really a screen by Louis XIV for his incursions on Spanish dominions in the New World. Immediately after it he authorized La Salle to start his colony on the Gulf of Mexico, and attempted to seize northern New Spain. A most important collection. SABIN 40104.

         Admiranda Romanarum Antiquatatum ac Veteris Sculpturae Vestigia

      Pace Gallery 1693 - Brown Leather. Written in Latin. Transverse folio (19" by 15 1/4"). With 83 leaves of etched plates. Rebound with 19th century leather. Rubbing, light wear to corners and spine. There is a water stain on the bottom of the pages but does not affect the engraving. Large gift inscription on endpaper.Some light foxing on edges and few print stains. Overall clean and binding is tight. The work first appeared around 1685 as part of a series of copper engravings about the Roman antiquities that the painter, copper engraver and publisher Bartoli and the art writer and collector Bellori attempted to preserve and document the "non-literary, pictorial sources of antiquity." Giovanni Giacomo Rossi and his successor from 1693, Domenico Rossi, then issued a new, changed edition of the work. Bartoli's etchings were aimed at detail, accurate accuracy and formal, aesthetic reproduction. The place of storage and, in some cases, the bearer of the relief are mentioned, although without indication of size and material. The reliefs are treated primarily as iconographic evidence of the history and culture of Rome. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         De Sacris Aedificiis a Constantino Magno Constructis.

      Komarek, Rome., 1693. First edition. Folio. pp [xvi], 217, [i errata], [ii bookseller's catalogue]. Allegorical engraved frontispiece by Arnoldo van Westerhout after Giovanni Battista Lenardi. 35 engraved plates, 10 of which are folding. Early eighteenth century full calf with raised band and gilt decorations.Giovanni Giustino Ciampini (1633-1698) was an eminent antiquary whose position as Magister brevium gratiae in the Apostolic Chancery in Rome enabled him to pursue his interests in books, coins, statues and the sciences, as well as archaeology. The present title is one of two major illustrated works of continuing utility and is largely concerned with the ancient churches built in Rome by Constantine the Great. The latter part of the book goes to the Campagna, Constantinople (including the Haghia Sofia) and Palestine (including the Church of the Nativity). Many of the plates are of an unprecedented architectural accuracy and depict features which have since been lost to change and decay.Sympathetically rebacked with decorated spine relaid, front endpapers renewed. Very good indeed. Internally exceptionally clean.
