      Coloniae Agrippinae, 1697. - in-4. 1f. 96pp. Plein vélin souple du temps. Edition Originale. Très rare réfutation de la censure prononcée par le Vatican, de la célèbre "Cité Mystique de Dieu" de Marie d'Agreda, l'une des œuvres spirituelles les plus représentatives de l'Espagne baroque du 17e siècle. Cette réfutation fut publiée clandestinement à Cologne par Thomas Crozet, qui publia finalement en 1715 la première traduction de Marie d'Agreda en français. L'interdiction qui frappait l'ouvrage, émise sur recommandation de Bossuet, ne fut levée que sous le pontificat de Benoît XIV et on compte aujourd'hui plus de 170 éditions en différentes langues. Piqûres à la page de titre, deux petites taches au feuillet C. Bon exemplaire dans son vélin d'origine. [Attributes: First Edition]

         KING ARTHUR. An Heroick Poem. In Twelve Books. To which is annexed, an Index, explaining the names of countrys, citys, and rivers, &c.

      London, Awnsham and John Churchil, and Jacob Tonson, 1697.. FIRST EDITION IN 12 BOOKS 1697, (the first edition appeared in ten books in 1695 under the title: Prince Arthur). Folio, approximately 330 x 200 mm, 13 x 8 inches, pages: Title page, i- xvii, [1] errata, 1-343, [8] - index, bound in full contemporary panelled calf, blind decoration to covers, sometime rebacked in lighter calf with raised bands, no lettering or label. Covers slightly worn and lightly pitted, small chip to surface on lower cover, corners slightly worn, inner paper hinges cracked, small pale water stain to title page, light crease to lower corner of title page and next few pages, slight worming to lower margin of title page persisting but decreasing to page 195, small pale damp stain to lower inner margin from page 335 to the end of the index, otherwise contents bright and clean. A very good tight copy. ESTC R235060. Sir Richard Blackmore (1654-1729) was a physician and a poet with a passion for writing epics. He supported the Glorious Revolution, and his first epic Prince Arthur (1695) was a celebration of William III. The poem was based on the form of Virgil's The Aeneid and the subject matter of Geoffrey of Monmouth's Historia Regum Britanniae. It told of the Celtic King Arthur opposing the invading Saxons and taking London, which was a transparent encoding of William III opposing the "Saxon" James II and taking London. William made Blackmore physician-in-ordinary (a position he would hold with Queen Anne as well), gave him a gold medal, and knighted him in 1697. Among Blackmore's admirers were John Locke and Dr Johnson who did him the honour of writing his life for his Lives of the Poets. Blackmore's next epic, King Arthur, has the same hero "yet 'tis another entire poem" (author's Preface), not as some have stated an enlarged reworking of the Prince Arthur. It takes different episodes of his life from Geoffrey of Monmouth, namely the expedition to invade France and the conquest of Paris. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE.

         A Collection of Tracts, publish'd in Vindication of Mr. Lock's Reasonableness of Christianity, as delivered in the Scriptures; and of his Essay concerning Humane Understanding. London: A. And J. Churchill, 1697-1706.

      - First edition. Samuel Bold was one of five people to whom Locke presented copies of the fourth edition of the Essay concerning Humane Understanding (1700). Also, the Preface of Locke's Second Vindication of The Reasonableness of Christianity (1697) consists mostly of Locke's grateful letter of acknowledgement addressed 'To Mr. Bold'. This collection, behind its new main title-page dated 1706, contains first printings of all the following six works, each with its own original title-page: 'Bold was installed as rector at Steeple in Dorset in 1682. It was from there, in 1697, that he commenced the work for which he is chiefly remembered, his defence of John Locke. Locke's The Reasonableness of Christianity had appeared in 1695 and was immediately attacked as Socinian by the Calvinist John Edwards in Socinianism Unmasked (1696). Locke's own Vindication (1695) and Second Vindication (1697) of the Reasonableness of Christianity against Edwards were supported by Bold who, in 1697, entered the field with A Short Discourse of the True Knowledge of Christ Jesus in which he contended with Locke that Christ and the apostles considered it sufficient for a Christian to believe that Jesus was the Christ. Bold published two further works in that year, contra Edwards, in defence of Locke and his own Short Discourse, and in 1698 added Observations on the animadversions on a late book entituled, the Reasonableness of Christianity, again in defence of Locke. In 1699 Bold turned his attention to the vindication of Locke's other great work, the Essay Concerning Humane Understanding (1690) which by then was already in a second edition but which had attracted unfavourable comment. Bold's Some considerations on the principal objections and arguments against Mr. Locke's essay of humane understanding (1699), together with his earlier work in support of The Reasonableness of Christianity drew the comment that Bold was ‘one of the ablest advocates of Mr. Locke’ (Hutchins, 1.612), as well as Locke's own unstinted gratitude. Bold was frequently mentioned in Locke's correspondence with great regard and Locke wrote to him in 1699 ‘everything must be welcome to me that comes from your pen’ (N&Q, 137), although in 1703 when Bold visited Locke at Otes (or Oates) he was dissuaded by Locke from further publication. In 1706, however, after Locke's death, Bold's earlier publications in defence of Locke were republished, together with some of his more recent works, in A collection of tracts publish'd in vindication of Mr. Locke's Reasonableness of Christianity. One of these later works, A Discourse Concerning the Resurrection of the Same Body (1705), seems to have been generated by Bold's assimilation of Locke's views on human existence, resulting in a major shift in Bold's own thinking regarding the nature and destiny of man' (ODNB). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Six parts in one volume, 8vo, [iv], 55, [ii], [vi], 52, xvi, 52, [v], 124, [iv], 60, [xii], 206, [2] pp., contemporary calf, rebacked, armorial bookplate of John Bold of Grange, early ownership inscription on front free endpaper and early annotations on main title verso showing through, browned in places (heavily in the fourth work), generally good copies, all very rare.

Le texte recèle de nombreuses références à l’alchimie et à la Pierre philosophale. Jean Haudicquer de Blancourt, né en Picardie vers 1650, consacra sa vie aux études généalogiques et héraldiques ainsi qu’à la chimie et l'alchimie. En 1701, il fut condamné aux galères pour falsification de titres de noblesse, peine qui fut commuée en prison à vie. Ses papiers et collections furent confisqués et déposés à la Bibliothèque Royale.

Texte (en italien) seul, sans les planches qui n'ont jamais été montées dans cet exemplaire. Le dernier feuillet de texte de la deuxième partie (liste des gravures) est également manquant. Les Viaggi de Coronelli sont une sorte de guide touristique rempli de ses notes de voyages, de nombreux commentaires sur les habitudes locales et de descriptions détaillées des villes visitées : Venise, Castelfranco Veneto, Bassano del Grappa, Padoue, Vicence, Vérone, Trente, Bolzano, Ispruch, Monaco, Augusta (Sicile), Nuremberg, Wurtzbourg, Francfort, Bad Mergentheim, Mayence, Coblence, Boppard, Bonn, Cologne, Düsseldorf, Rheinberg, Nimègue, Emmerich am Rhein, Rees, Tiel, Bomel (Namur), Dortmund, Limbourg, Nuitz, Cleves, Alkmaar, Rotterdam, Delft; Loosduinen, Leiden (Leyde), Rendsburg, Haarlem, Amsterdam, Utrecht, Gouda, Brielle, Angleterre : Londres (la City, Kensington), Windsor, Oxford, Cambridge et Harwich. Vincenzo Maria Coronelli (né le 16 août 1650 à Venise - mort le 9 décembre 1718, dans la même ville) est un moine franciscain conventuel et docteur en théologie italien, à la fois cartographe, cosmographe, fabricant de globes et encyclopédiste. Sa carrière de cartographe débute en 1680, avec la construction d'une paire de globes, l'un terrestre, l'autre céleste, pour le duc de Parme, Ranunce II Farnese. À l'occasion d'une mission diplomatique, César, cardinal d'Estrées, visite la bibliothèque du duc de Parme, y découvre les globes, et décide d'engager Coronelli et de l'héberger à Paris pour qu'il réalise deux globes en l'honneur de Louis XIV. De retour à Venise en 1684, Coronelli fonde l'Accademia Cosmografica degli Argonauti, destinée à diffuser ses publications dans toute l'Europe. Il reçoit l'année suivante le titre de Cosmographe de la République de Venise. Après un nouveau voyage à Paris, de 1686 à 1687, il demeure à Venise jusqu'en 1696, période qu'il met à profit pour publier plusieurs cartes, et la première partie de son Isolario en 1696. Avec deux ambassadeurs vénitiens, il quitte la République de Venise en 1696 pour un voyage de deux ans, qui l'emmène en Germanie, en Hollande, puis en Angleterre et, notamment, à Oxford où il est salué avec honneurs à l'Université. Il publie ses Viaggi l'année suivante. Livres Un coin émoussé, des traces de frottements, notamment sur les 3 autres coins, les mors et la coiffe inférieure, une ancienne étiquette en pied du dos, 2 tampons découpés sur la page de titre et la suivante, page de garde partiellement détachée mais non manquante, sinon bel et rare exemplaire.

         Alle de werken van P. Ovidius Naso vertaalt door Abraham Valentijn. Met privilegie van de Edele Groot Mogende Heeren Staten van Holland en West-Vriesland. Amsterdam, Pieter Mortier, 1697.

      - Contemporary parchment binding. 150 x 90 mm, 12º: (dl 1:) pi2 *6 (-*4) A-K#12 L#8, [14] 256 pp.; (dl 2:) pi#2 A-Q#12, [4] 382 pp.; (dl 3:) pi#2 A-Q#12, [4] 338 [44] pp. Three identical engraved title pages with a circular portrait engraving. Part II has 15 etchings by C[oenraad] Decker. Little foxing, good copy. Prose translation (prozavertaling) of the complete works of Ovid (and more, because some poems are now known not to be Ovid’s). The works are arranged in the usual chronological order: first the heroines letters (Heldinnenbrieven) and erotic poetry (erotische poezie), then the metamorphoses, illustrated with 15 engravings by C Decker and in part III the incomplete calendar (only six of the 12 months) and mourning songs and letters from the Black Sea. These last two titles were written by Ovid while he was in exile. The translator, Abraham Valentijn (1640 – after 1697) was preceptor and rector at the Latin School in Dordrecht and from 1681 also the librarian for the Dordrecht city library. In his dedication to Mayor Adriaan van Blyenborch, he blames previous Ovid translators that they had not studied Greek historians and poets enough, thus "op tallijke blinde klippen gestooten sijn" (which means that they had a lot of difficulties translating). The 15 prints by Decker for the first edition of Valentijn’s translation, which appeared at Daniel Gaasbeeck at Leiden, are only a small part of the originally intended prints. When you read the message to the binder in the back, you’ll see that there was another set of prints (124 pieces!) that could have been bound with the Metamorphoses. The translation by Valentijn was followed by a third edition, this time with notes by the Amsterdam based physician and literary Ludolf Smids. ZKL0060

"Wohl das amüsanteste und geistreichste Wörterbuch, das jemals geschrieben wurde"(E. Friedell), hier in der ersten Auflage. - Zischka 7 (gibt als 1. Ausgabe ' Rotterdam, 1695 - 1697' an); Graesse I, 314; vgl. Brunet I, 711 (spätere Ausgaben). - Das vorliegende Werk entstand als Erwiderung zu "Le Grand Dictionnaire Historique" des Abbé Louis Moréri (1643 - 1680), der die von ihm behandelten Gegenstände aus kirchlicher Sicht beurteilt. Pierre Bayle (1647 - 1706) plante ursprünglich eine "kritische Neubearbeitung des Moréri" (Zischka XXXVIII), daraus entwickelte sich aber eines der ersten vom Geiste der Frühaufklärung geprägten Nachschlagewerke. Es handelt sich nicht um ein Wörterbuch im heutigen Sinne, sondern um ein Namenslexikon, "das in alphabetischer Anordnung Biographien und die Darstellung von Werken bedeutender Persönlichkeiten aneinanderreiht." (KLL III 2670). Formal gliedern sich die einzelnen Beiträge in einen meist kurzen Textteil und einen mitunter ausufernden Anmerkungsapparat, in dem die eigentliche geistige Auseinandersetzung mit dem jeweiligen Stichwort stattfindet. Hier ist der Platz für Bayles "gewagteste Anspielungen und Unterstellungen" (Carter-Muir 155), die dem Werk seinen skurrilen Charakter verleihen. - Bayle, als Sohn eines protestantischen Pastors geboren, wechselte 1669 zum Katholizismus und rekonvertierte 1670 zum Calvinismus. Er studierte Theologie und cartesianische Philosophie. Später ging er freiwillig ins Exil nach Rotterdam, wo er 1681 eine Professur übernahm und das vorliegende Werk verfaßte. - Außengelenke stellenweise gebrochen; Kapitale schadhaft und teils fehlend; stärker beschabt und bestoßen. Vordere Spiegel jeweils mit handschriftlicher Bibliothekssignatur; fliegendes Blatt von Band 1 mit handschriftlicher Widmung; fliegendes Blatt und Titel von Band 3 und Band 4 jeweils mit handschriftlichem Besitzvermerk; Titelblätter jeweils mit 2 Stempeln (unleserlich); gebräunt und vereinzelt wasser- und stockfleckig.

         The Praise of York-shire Ale, Wherein is enumerated several sorts of Drink, with a Discription [sic] of the Humors of most sorts of Drunckards. To Which is added, a York-shire Dialogue in its pure natural dialect, as is now commonly spoken in the North parts of York-shire. With the Addition of some Observations, of the Dialect and Pronuntiation of Words in the East Ryding of York-shire. Together with a Collection of significant and usefull proverbs. By G.M. Gent.

      York J. White for Francis Hildyard at the Signe of the Bible in Stone-Gate 1697 - Octavo (16 x 10.8 cm). Title, leaf 'To the Reader', 124 pp.; title and last page a bit darkened, marginal paper repairs to several corners including title-page without loss of letters, one leaf with scuff a bit obscuring text, second leaf slightly cropped at bottom not affecting text. Early nineteenth century polished calf gilt, gilt fillets to covers, spine gilt with raised bands, red and tan morocco labels lettered in gilt, ; sometime rebacked preserving spine, a very good example. Reader, here's sportive mirth and harmless Droll, Come buy and Read, and laugh thy Belly full. When thou hast done, if thou condemn me for 't, Then I have made my self, and not thee sport; That man is too morose, and much to blame, That doth condemn all mirth to be profane: All Ages have of lawful mirth allow'd; If too much time in it were not bestow'd. Here thou hast mirth, with small expence of time, I've taken paines, the pleasure will be thine. With "a pioneering dialect glossary, preceded in print only by John Ray's" (ODNB). This glossary is the fourth part of the publication, taking more than 30 pages (pp. 89-124): "For'th lang Lane, is when a thing is borrowed with an intention never to be pay'd again". The first part (pp. 1-32) is the Praise itself, an imaginative poem relating Bacchus' adventures in Yorkshire in an interesting mix of English, dialect and Latin. It was first published in 1685. It is followed (pp. 33-78) by A York-Shire Dialogue in its pure Natural Dialect [.] in the North parts of York shire, first published in 1683. Reader here's Folly, come and Laugh thy fill, He neer did good, that never did no ill. The third part (pp. 79-81) is of great interest for the study of pronunciation some 300 years ago, as it contains Some Observations concerning the Dialect and various Pronunciation of words in the East-Riding of Yorkshire. The Collection of Significant and usefull Proverbs, some of which are apropriated to York-shire" (pp. 83-88) teaches us that "Best is best Cheap", or that "Better heve a Mouse in the Pot than neay Flesh". This is the third edition of the Dialogue, the second of the Praise - a much enlarged edition "with additional dialect material" (ODNB). Scarce: we could trace only three copies of this edition at auction in the last 40 years, and none of the other editions of the Praise and the Dialogue. ESTC R19511. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         The True Nature of Imposture Fully Displayed in the Life of Mahomet. With a Discourse Annexed, for the Vindicating of Christianity from this Charge; Offered to the Consideration of the Deists of the Present Age ... The Second Edition Corrected.

      London, Printed for William Rogers, at the Sun against St. Dunstan's Church, in Fleetstreet, 1697. Two parts in one volume, 8vo. Near contemporary sprinkled calf with raised bands; pp. [2], xxiii, [5], 162; 180; wear to extremities; internally, apart from a few spots a very clean and good copy. The dean of Norwich was well-versed in Arabic and Hebrew and 'his main fame as a writer has rested on two frequently reprinted works, his Life of Mahomet (1697) and his Connection (1716-18). The former's title states its purpose - The True Nature of Imposture Fully Displayed in the Life of Mahomet - and the life itself is followed by a long Letter to the Deists identifying seven marks of imposture chargeable on 'Mahometism' but not on Christianity. Prideaux's learned footnotes and bibliography of thirty-six Arabic authorities imply original research in manuscript sources; but, as P. M. Holt shows, everything derives from printed editions (with Latin translations) or citations and references in Christian writers' (ODNB). ESTC R7105.

Lacks portrait frontispiece, which is rare and not uncommon. Illustrations: Woodcut astrological diagrams. John Partridge (1643-1715), influential English astrologer and producer of almanacs. Apprentice to a shoemaker, he acquired enough books to teach himself Greek, Latin, and Hebrew. He may have studied with atrologer John Gadbury and seems to have given up shoes when his first publication was issued about 1678. His first major work, Mikropanasurm, was published the next year. In 1680, he started issuing an almanac entitled Merlinus Liberatus. Partridge came to prefer the Placidian house system (aka Ptolemaic Method, a system that can be described as time-proportional house sytem of movement, which is in contrast to the space-based systems that are built on atrsonomical great circles, rather than on time curves) a choice evident in his final major works, including Opus Reformation (1693) and the Defectio Geniturarum (1697), both highly technical analyses of primary directions in sample horoscopes. By 1700, he was the most prominent astrologer in Britain. His almanac was so popular other people began to publish almanacs in his name. ?Partridge was the butt of one of Swift?s (Jonathan) most delightful satires and mystifications (under the pseudo of Bickerstaff) prophesying his death, and afterwards announcing it, with the addition of a number of imaginary details, so as to render the description more complete. This last pamphlet, ?The Accomplishment of Mr. Bickerstaffs Predictions, being an account of the death of Mr. Patrridge, killed the latter so effectually that even the repeated counter-pamphlets of the bewildered victim, declaring himself to still be alive, could not convince the world of that fact? [-quote from Sutheran?s Price Catalogue, 1905]. .Often bound with a second title, ?Flagitiosus Mercurius flagellatus? at the end, our copy does not include this work but is complete in itself and not uncommon to be bound alone.
