Thus the snake.” Joseph Wyeth, A Switch for the Snake Joseph Wyeth was a controversial 17th-century Quaker writer. One of his most contentious works was ‘Anguis Flagellatus or a Switch for the Snake’ which was a reply to Charles Leslie’s ‘Snake in the Grass’. Leslie wrote one of the earliest attacks on Quakerism and it provoked many replies. Wyeth’s ‘Switch’ inspired more anti-Quaker responses including organized opposition to Quaker groups in Maryland.

         Historia da fundação do Real Convento de Santa Monica da Cidade de Goa, corte do Estado da India, & do Imperio Lusitano do Oriente .

Typographical and woodcut headpieces, woodcut initials. In good to very good condition; internally fine. (6 ll.), 819 pp. *** FIRST EDITION. Nominally a history of an Augustinian convent founded in Goa in 1606, this important work is in fact much broader in scope: it gives a detailed history of Portuguese missions and missionaries, with a wealth of information on a wide variety of subjects relating to the Portuguese in the East. Among the biographies of persons associated with the Real Convento de Santa Monica is a lengthy one of D. Aleixo de Menezes, who was archbishop of Goa at the time of the convent's foundation. Menezes oversaw the expansion of Augustinian missions in the East, on the west coast of India, the Coromandel coast, in Ceylon, and in Bengal; the number of Augustinian friars in the area increased from 99 to 155 during his time. The observations on sea voyages to Goa were used by Boxer in his annotations to the English translation of the História tragico-marítima.Agostinho de Santa Maria, born in Estremoz (his secular name was Manuel Gomes Freire), was a Discalced Augustinian and served as chronicler and vicar of his congregation. His prolific works are still considered among the classics of Portuguese literature. They include Rosas do Japam, Lisbon 1709-24, an account of Christian women in Japan.*** Arouca S98.

Spencer Cowper, a young man known to the Stouts & the last person to see Sarah alive, was indicted for her murder.

Containing The most Exact Relation hitherto pub lish'd, of their unparall'd Cruelties on the Indians, in the destruction of above Forty Millions of People. With the Propositions offer'd to the King of Spain, to prevent the further Ruin of the West Indies. By Don Bartholomew de las Casas, Bishop of Chiapa, who was an Eye- witness of their Cruelties.

Octavo (7 3/8 x 4 1/2 inches; 188 x 113 mm). [8], 248; 40 pp. With twenty-two scenes on four leaves of plates. The twenty-two small engravings are after De Bry and they depict "The Spaniards Cruelties on the Indians &c.""The art of travelling to advantage" (caption title) begins new pagination on R5r.This edition is translated from a new French Edition, and is a much expanded version from the first English edition.

It was issued with a variant title the same year.""Said, in the preface, to be 'translated from a new modern French edition,' no doubt the one of 1697, supra. Mr. Helps closes a fine eulogium in the following language: 'His [Casas] career affords, perhaps, a solitary instance of a man who, being neither a conqueror, a discoverer, nor an inventor, has, by the pure force of benevolence, become so notable a figure that large portions of history cannot be written, or at least cannot be understood, without the narrative of his deeds and efforts being made one of the principal threads upon which the history is strung. ... Take away all he said and did, and preached, and wrote, and preserved (for the early historians of the New World owe the records of many of their most valuable facts to him), and the history of the conquest would lose a considerable portion of its most precious material.'î (Sabin, 11289)."The relations of Las Casas proved a most formidable weapon for any nation on ill terms with the Spaniards...It is to be hoped that the real number inhumanly tortured and slain has been fictitiously doubled many times, otherwise we should be compelled to believe that the torments of purgatory were too moderate for the Spaniards."

An Account of the First Voyages and Discoveries Made by the Spaniards in America. Containing The most Exact Relation hitherto pub lish'd, of their unparall'd Cruelties on the Indians, in the destruction of above Forty Millions of People. With the Propositions offer'd to the King of Spain, to prevent the further Ruin of the West Indies. By Don Bartholomew de las Casas, Bishop of Chiapa, who was an Eye- witness of their Cruelties. Illustrated with Cuts. To which is added, The Art of Travelling, Shewing how a man may dispose his Travels to the best advantage. London: J. Darby for D. Brown et al., 1699. Second English edition. Octavo (7 3/8 x 4 1/2 inches; 188 x 113 mm). [8], 248; 40 pp. With twenty-two scenes on four leaves of plates. The twenty-two small engravings are after De Bry and they depict "The Spaniards Cruelties on the Indians &c." "The art of travelling to advantage" (caption title) begins new pagination on R5r. This edition is translated from a new French Edition, and is a much expanded version from the first English edition. Only two copies of the first English edition have come up at auction in the past 30 years, and both copies were defective. Half calf over marbled boards. Spine lettered in gilt. Marbled endpapers. Some rubbing and chipping to boards. A 2-inch closed tear to bottom of page of leaf G2, with no loss of text. Leaves quite foxed as usual. Outer hinges with some splitting, but binding holding firm. Head and tail of the spine with some minor chipping. Over all a very good copy. Although this is the second edition, according to Sotheby's "this translation, for all intents and purposes, is a separate, new work, much improved over the earlier ones. It was issued with a variant title the same year." "Said, in the preface, to be 'translated from a new modern French edition,' no doubt the one of 1697, supra. Mr. Helps closes a fine eulogium in the following language: 'His [Casas] career affords, perhaps, a solitary instance of a man who, being neither a conqueror, a discoverer, nor an inventor, has, by the pure force of benevolence, become so notable a figure that large portions of history cannot be written, or at least cannot be understood, without the narrative of his deeds and efforts being made one of the principal threads upon which the history is strung. . Take away all he said and did, and preached, and wrote, and preserved (for the early historians of the New World owe the records of many of their most valuable facts to him), and the history of the conquest would lose a considerable portion of its most precious material.'" (Sabin, 11289). "The relations of Las Casas proved a most formidable weapon for any nation on ill terms with the Spaniards.It is to be hoped that the real number inhumanly tortured and slain has been fictitiously doubled many times, otherwise we should be compelled to believe that the torments of purgatory were too moderate for the Spaniards."

         Voyages and Descriptions. Vol II. In Three Parts, viz. 1. A Supplement of the Voyage round the World....2. Two Voyages to Campeachy; ...3. A Discourse of Trade-Winds, Breezes, Storms, Seasons of the Year, Tides and Currents...

      London: James Knapton, 1699 A good copy of the 1st edition in contemporary speckled calf binding with 4 folding maps. William Dampier was a well-known sailor/buccaneer in the late 1600's. He documented his travels carefully and extensively - noting down what he saw, for example natural history, navigational issues, peoples, and trade. His published works were very popular because he wrote well and clearly. This is the second of his works, published 2 years after the first, and stands alone - covering two supplementary accounts of his voyages and a detailed section on trade winds, currents, weather and tides to aid future navigation. This copy is in a contemporary speckled calf binding with raised bands to spine blind-stamped decoration to boards. It has some wear and loss to the top and bottom of the spine and wear to the front spine joint. Internally there is no pastedown to the front and the ties are visible. The fep has some marking. Contents: initial blank; title page; dedication 2pp; Preface 3pp; Contents 1p; folding map; Part 1pp 1-184 finis; fold map; Part II 1-132 finis; half title; 2 folding maps; Part III 1-112 finis; General Index 76pp; errata; books by James Knapton 3pp. The contents are very clean with the occasional light mark. There is an ink mark to the foredge; loss to the bottom corner of p 67 in part 1 - no text affected; and a small repaired edge tear to the side margin of p63 in Part III. There is some mispagination: Pt I - 129-126-127-132; 137-134-135-140; 141-138-139-144. Pt III - 88-98-90. The text is continuous. A nice copy of an important work.

De hecho, las primeras notas para el libro comenzó a tomarlas al leer el de Fontenelle ese mismo año de 1686. Una de las circunstancias más curiosas de este debate es que transcurrió acerca de en qué planetas era en los que había vida y cómo serían esos habitantes y sus civilizaciones: todos los que participaron compartían la convicción de partida de que sí que había vida extraterrestre, lo que tiene su explicación en una herencia de los debates medievales sobre la potencia de Dios que se saldó con la idea de que puesto que no cabía negarle la potestad de haber dispuesto vida en otros mundos, seguro que la había (ya que lo que sí que no cabía en su visión de Dios era que fuese caprichoso). A diferencia de Fontenelle, Huygens rechazó la idea de que hubiese habitantes en la luna (selenitas a los que Fontenelle imaginó como seres roedores que vivían bajo tierra alimentándose de piedras) aduciendo que, como no tenía ni atmosfera ni agua, por ello tampoco posibilidad de vida. Y, sin embargo, no solo la defendió para el resto de los planetas, sino que hizo a sus habitantes análogos a los terrestres, con el mismo tipo de inteligencia, inquietudes, capacidades y conocimientos. Se ha señalado cómo, curiosamente, la exposición de datos científicamente argumentados sobre dimensiones y características físicas de los diferentes planetas del sistema solar que Huygens fue desgranando, servían más bien para rechazar la idea de que hubiese vida que para defenderla, como, en cambio, efectivamente hizo(1). Ese optimismo lo basó en lo que llamó probabilidad: le parecía dudoso que si en otros planetas se daban ambientes como aquellos en los que en la Tierra había seres animados, la ley de la naturaleza fuera tal que en ellos no se cumpliesen resultados semejantes, de donde colegía que debían darse esos seres animados y, si debía haberlos, por ese mismo argumento se asemejarían con seguridad en nutrirse y en reproducirse (¡momento que aprovecha para dar cuenta del recientísimo descubrimiento con el microscopio de los espermatozoides!). Con el mismo tipo de analogías supone que entre ellos habría seres dotados de sentidos y del gusto por elevarse por encima de ellos, llegando así a lanzar la hipótesis de que sin duda habría diferentes tipos de seres dotados de diferentes tipos de raciocinio. Algo para lo que no dudó en traer como prueba la afirmación de que en la Tierra el hombre no es el único ser racional, "ya que en todas estas criaturas [el perro, el mono, el castor, las abejas, algunas pájaros.] percibimos un raciocinio independiente y previo al aprendizaje o la práctica"(2). Y en su entusiasmo deductivo (en realidad, abductivo), Huygens llevó las analogías al extremo de imaginar que incluso vestirían y tendrían conocimientos astronómicos seguramente semejantes a los de los humanos en la Tierra. Ciertamente Huygens dejó margen a que sus facultades no serían todas idénticas a las de los [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Erben, druckts Immanuel Tietze, 1699. - 4to (20.6 x 16.5 cm.): [38], 1005, [33] pages; engraved frontispiece portrait of Lehmann inset within views of the Erzgebirge and [12] engraved plates (nine folded) comprising one map of the Annaberg district in the Erzgebirge, illustrations of mountains rock formations and topographical features, and views of Karlsbad, Wiesenbad, and Wolkenstein; also many wood-cut illustrations of flora and fauna, natural wonders, astronomical events, and curiosities throughout the text. Bound in 19th century half-calf over marbled paper boards, a little rubbed, but in very good condition. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION OF THIS VERY RARE WORK ON THE TOPOGRAPHY AND NATURAL HISTORY OF THE ERZGEBIRGE REGION OF SAXONY AND BOHEMIA. Christian Lehmann (1611-1688) was a German Protestant pastor, an important witness to the Thirty Years' War, and one of the most important chroniclers of the Erzgebirge. In keeping with prevailing habit among rules and scholars in pre-scientific Europe to assemble cabinets of curiosity, Lehmann travelled throughout his beloved Erzgebirge through much of his life in search of strange natural phenomena as well as manuscripts and antiquarian books. He interviewed priests, public officials and learned men as well as miners, farmers, herdsmen, and other mountain folk. The fruit of Lehmann's work was recorded in several manuscript volumes which he hoped to publish during his lifetime. Lehmann originally envisioned a six-volume work in Latin entitled "Pinifer Misniae Illustratus," but only the prospectus ever appeared (the single known copy of this prospectus is held by the Universitäts- und Landesbibliothek Sachsen-Anhalt in Halle, Germany). Lehmann's death in 1688 left the task of completing the work to his three sons, who undertook the task of sifting his manuscripts and stitching together a 1,000-page narrative that brought together scientific observation, folksy anecdotes and poetry, and piety. The final opus, based on Lehmann's notes and with additions by members of his family, can be regarded as a unique treasure trove of information on this corner of Central Europe. A second edition, nearly identical to the first but without Lehmann's name, was published in Leipzig in 1747.

"Although he appears to have made little impact on literary historians, or compilers of Scottish biography, Hogg is notable as one of the most prolific Latin writers of his age. His output was remarkable, consisting of biblical paraphrase, complimentary poems, and translations of long English works into Latin.Hogg is of particular interest as one of relatively few whig Latin poets (besides Joseph Addison).he is easily the most productive Latin poet of the 1690s, and deserves further study." - ODNB Condition: Good only. Joints starting. Bumped with loss. Front free endpaper missing, as well as half title. Offsetting to endpapers. Occasional mark. Intermittent spots. Closed tear measuring approx 2cm to page A4.

        Relation du voyage de M. Evert Isbrand, envoyé de Sa Majesté Czarienne a l'empereur de la Chine, en 1692, 93, & 94. Par le sieur Adam Brand. Avec une lettre de monsieur ***, sur l'etat présent de la Moscovie.

      Amsterdam Chez Jean-Louis de Lorme 1699 - First French edition. 12mo, [4], 249, [1] pp, engraved frontispiece, double-page engraving of the Pagoda at Siam, large folding map, contemporary calf, morocco label, spine richly gilt, carmine edges; old ownership inscription to title, corners just bumped, small stains to covers else a fine, fresh copy. "Brand was the secretary to Evert Ysbrandszoon Ides' embassy from the Russian Czar to Peking of 1693-95. His [book] is valuable not only for its description of the route and the Siberian tribes he encountered along the way, but especially for his vivid account of the embassy's experiences in China, his description of the Great Wall and Chinese frontier settlements, and his report of the embassy's reception in Peking. Brand includes a brief general description of China, which appears to have been taken from standard published works. His eyewitness reports of the temples he visited, the dust on Peking streets, the negotiations with Chinese officials, the official banquets he attended, and so forth, are his most important contributions to Europe's knowledge of Asia." (Lach). Originally published in German the previous year, shortly followed by an English translation. Cordier Sinica 2469. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
