        A Sketch of the Life and Projects of John Law of Lauriston,comptroller General of the finances in France

      Quarto, 29.0 x 23.0 cm, original blue paper wrappers, uncut, pp.(4) + ii + 48, paper wrappers with short tear, an excellent copy, preserved in a marbled portfolio with ties.ESTC T8458. Kress B2240. Goldsmith 14941.RARE FIRST EDITION of the earliest published biography in English of the Scottish economist John Law. The dedication is to William Davidson of Muirhead. The son of a prosperous banker John Law [1671-1729] devoted his entire life to making proposals for the establishment of banks, both in Scotland and on the Continent, convinced as he was that the key to economic prosperity lay in augmenting the base of metallic currencies with paper money, particularly paper money backed by land holdings. He was appointed Controller General of Finances in France by the regent Philippe dOrleans in 1716 and the became the architect of the Mississippi Bubble. Law was dismissed from his post in 1720.His principal theories on money and banking, giving a detailed account of his plan to replace specie with paper currency based on land and of his proposals for a state bank were published in his Money and trade considered, published anonymously in Edinburgh in 1705. Law is described by Schumpeter as "in the front rank of monetary theorists of all times". Antoin Murphy writes "Money and trade in particular is a seminal work....In it Law discussed not only the money/inflation issue, but, more significantly, the money/output issue. He was contending that money was linked, not just to the price level, but also to output ? or trade, as it was then called. Law wanted to show that an expansion of money supply could increase output and employment in an economy characterised by unemployment and under-utilisation of resources. At the same time, he produced a highly innovative approach to macroeconomic theorizing..."The author of this biography John Wood was to publish in 1794 an account of John Law?s ancestral village entitled The Ancient and Modern State of the Parish of Cramond.

Wherein is likewise described the strange and dangerous adventures that befel him in the prosecution of his love towards the Princess Florisbella, daughter to the Souldan of Babylon. His releasing of her father the Souldan from a strange enchantment, and vanquishing the Emperor of Trebizond.Now newly written in English by F.K. First part only of 3 of second edition of Francis Kirkman's translation, printed by Tho. Johnson, for Francis Kirkman and are to be sold at his shop, 1671. Small 4to, 175 x 125 mm, 6¾ x 5 inches, printed mainly in black letter, pages (2), 1-32, 49-96, 90-93, LACKING 2 LEAVES C2 AND C3, pagination is erratic but catchwords to the rest of the text follow on, as does the register, curiously the title page has been replaced by the title page of the second part, which was identical to that of the first part except for the words "The Second Part" placed after the title, bound in full antique calf, blind ruled panels to covers, gilt rules and raised bands, lacking spine label. Covers lightly scuffed, head and tail of spine and corners slightly rubbed, front inner paper hinge cracked but binding tight and firm, title page and first page of text dusty and slightly marked with ink, first 5 leaves have neat paper repairs to either a margin or the top corner, 4 further margin repairs further on, pages age browned throughout, some upper margins trimmed just shaving the running title, occasional pale staining and light damp staining, no loss of legibility, some old ink writing in a couple of places, small piece torn from 1 lower margin, tiny hole in text on 2 pages with loss of a couple of letters, still easily understandable. Binding tight and firm. A defective copy of Part I of a very scarce work, (lacking 2 leaves as noted). The source of this novel of knight errantry is one of the continuations of the Spanish medieval romance Amadis of Gaul. This one, Historia del valeroso e invencible Principe don Belianis de Grecia, is attributed to the Spanish writer Geronimo Fernandez and the earliest English translation of this popular romance appears to have been published in 1598. It was newly translated from either Spanish or an Italian version by Francis Kirkman and his version first published in 1664. Kirkman (1632 - c. 1680) appears in many roles in the English literary world of the second half of the seventeenth century, as a publisher, bookseller, librarian, author, translator and bibliographer. He was an enthusiast for popular literature and wrote and published romances of his own. He was also famous for one of the earliest circulating libraries which consisted of his collection of over 800 plays. His catalogues of plays constitute his most important contribution to literary history. Images sent on request. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

One of the most prominent English physiologists of his day, Lower (in Norman's words) "made the next great advance after Harvey in the physiology of blood circulation when he determined experimentally, with the assistance of Robert Hooke, that venous blood is changed to arterial blood in the lungs by virtue of its contact with air. The experiments leading to this discovery are reported in the third chapter of Lower's 'De Corde,' a work that also contains a number of other important observations, such as the scroll-like structure of the cardiac muscle (confirmed 250 years later by Mall), the heart's contractive and expulsive movements, the tamponade effect of pericardial effusion, and the limiting effect of pericardial adhesions on the heart." The fourth chapter here gives details of blood transfusions Lower (1631-91) made between dogs in February of 1665 and between humans in November of 1667, among the very first such operations to be performed. An edition appeared in London in 1669, and that "is usually considered to be the first." (Heirs of Hippocrates) All early editions are in Latin, and while none of them can be said to be extremely rare, it is difficult to imagine a contemporary copy in better condition than the present one.

        L'Incredulité scavante, et la credulité ignorante: au sujet des magiciens et des sorciers, avecque la response à un livre intitulé Apologie pour tous les grands personnages, qui ont esté faussement soupconnés de Magie. Par le P. Jacques d'Autun, Predicateur Capucin.

      Lyons: Jean Molin, 1671 - Quarto (220 x 160 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, spine gilt in compartments, red and brown sprinkled edges. Binding rubbed and scuffed, with small leather loss at foot of front joint, title page marked from over-enthusiastic edge-sprinkling, occasional minor staining elsewhere, a very good copy. Woodcut vignette on title, woodcut initials, and head- and tailpieces. First edition, a reply to Gabriel Naudé's sceptical Apologie pour tous les grands personnages, qui ont été faussement soupçonnés de magie, recently republished in 1669. Jacques de Chevanes (c.1608&#150;1678) of Autun had personal experience of a witch-hunt in Burgundy in 1648/9, and he includes extracts from a 1670 interview with a woman accused of sorcery and witchcraft. Addressed to the parlement of Dijon, the book is written largely from a legalistic point of view, though with lengthy digressions, for example on astrology. Lynn Thorndike suggests that its title was a deliberate echo of the English anti-sceptical work On Credulity and Incredulity in Things Natural, Civil and Divine (1668) by Méric Casaubon. The book walks a middle way between scepticism and credulity: Chevanes argues that sorcerers are few in number and that their redemption and regeneration is both possible and preferable to their judicial execution.

And Humbly Presented to the Kings Most Excellent Majesty Charles II. In the Year, 1671. The Instruments (or Speaking-Trumpets) of all Sizes and Dimensions, are Made and Sold by Mr. Simon Beal, one of his Majesties Trumps: in Suffolk-Street

      London, Printed by W. Godbid, and are to be Sold by M. Pitt..., 1671. FIRST EDITION. Folio, 295 x 200 mms., pp. [ii], 14, with five illustrations of trumpets and acoustical phenomena on the verso of the title-page, and pages 2, 6, 8, and 10, title-page and page 12 printed in red and black, late 18th century calf spine, marbled boards (slightly worn); without the portrait found in some copies, small paper flaw in C2, very slight browning of margins with a few very minor abrasions. From the Macclesfield Library, with the armorial bookplate date 1860 on the front paste-down end-paper and the small Macclesfield crest in blind on the first two leaves. Sir Samuel Morland (1625 - 1695) was interested in mathematics, natural philosophy, and languages from an early age and was a fellow of Magdalene College, Cambridge. One of his students was Samuel Pepys, who recorded his presence at a dinner in 1660 when no one "did give him any respect, he being looked upon by...all men as a knave." Later in 1668, when Pepys was invited to see the calculating machine that Morland had invented, he observed that the invention was "very pretty, but not very useful." Of this particular invention, Alan Marshall in the Oxford DNB says "Early work on a speaking trumpet, said to be Morland&#39;s own invention, culminated in the 1670s with his experiments in St James&#39;s Park before Charles II and a number of courtiers. With the king&#39;s encouragement various types of trumpet were manufactured and used, the three largest being sent off to Deal Castle for trials there. The navy was also given orders for their use at sea. It was claimed that voices could be heard at a distance of over a mile...." His trumpets were much talked about in the late 17th century, but it was another 150 years before the modern tuba found a place in orchestras. Morland&#39;s tuba looks more like an early trumpet or cornet, or even a trombone without the slide. As a method for gathering and projecting sound, it was in advance of anything in its day.

John Smith&#39;s landmark map, based on the first survey of the Chesapeake Bay. Curiously, the map is illustrated with images of a llama, goat, and unicorn, which were evidently considered by Europeans to be native to Virginia. In early ink, Maryland ("Terre-Mariae") was added to the title. Although the map itself is based on the Blaeu-Hondius engraving of the Smith map, all three cartouches on Ogilby-Montanus were newly added.

Fint stänkdekorerat pappbd från 1700-talets slut med nött rosa titeletikett i papp. Stänkta snitt. Sista sidan förstärkt i yttermarginalen.

Vare sig Bring eller Schiötz har uppmärksammat hoppet i pagineringen, dock rättar den senare uppgiften i sitt supplement. Som vanligt saknas det grav. porträttet av författaren, vilket i enstaka fall återfinns på baksidan av "extraict du privilege du roy". Detta är den första upplagan av la Martinières reseskildring. Författaren var en fransk läkare, sannolikt född i Rouen, och den förste fransman, som publicerat en sjöresa längs norra Europas kust. Han befann sig i Köpenhamn, då det dansk-norska handelskompaniet beslöt sig för att skicka tre fartyg till kusterna längst upp i norr för att inhämta upplysningar om eventuella affärsmöjligheter. Under denna färd, som tog sin början i februari 1653, besökte författaren även Bohuslän, men vad han skriver om detta landskap är mycket obetydligt. Han kan även möjligen ha besökt svenska lappmarken

On its first publication in 1653, this was his first publication. Aimed at the richer end of the market, this second edition, an expensive and profusely illustrated folio, with additions including a discussion of divination by moles, was issued at a price of 10 shillings. Reflecting his practice as an astrological physician, it is essentially a practical composition, including material drawn from earlier and contemporary continental writers such as Michael Scot, Paracelsus, Della Porta, Cardano, Goclenius, Robert Fludd and Jean Belot. Seligman&#39;s History of Magic devotes several pages to his prognostic use of moles.

        The Book of Common Prayer and Administration of the Sacraments and Other Rites and Ceremonies of the Church of England Together with the Psalter or Psalms of David Pointed as they are to be Sung or Said in Churches

The work of 1549 was the first prayer book to include the complete forms of service for daily and Sunday worship in English. It contained Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer, the Litany, and Holy Communion and also the occasional services in full: the orders for Baptism, Confirmation, Marriage, &#39;prayers to be said with the sick&#39; and a Funeral service. With the Old and New Testaments,commonly known as the King James Version, an English translation of the Christian Bible by the Church of England begun in 1604 and completed in 1611.

      London: Printed by Tho. Milbourn for Robert Clavel, Tho. Passinger, William Cadman, William Whiswood, Tho. Sawbridge, adn William Birch, 1671. Hard Cover. Very Good. Hard Cover. Fourth Edition very much enlarged. This edition includes the first appearance of descriptions of four American "plantations." English clergyman Samuel Clark (1599 - 1683) was a noted Puritan biographer. A supporter of Cromell, he was ejected from the church in 1662 soon after Charles II was restored to power. Clark was a prolific writer who claimed at one point to have written over 8000 pages of text (though much of his writings were really compilations of works of others). This is an interesting collection of works ranging from religion to geography to art. In A Mirrour or Looking-Glass (parts I and II), Clarke discuses a variety of attributes & afflictions such as abstinence, adultery, conjugal love, deceit, hypocrites, patience, superstition, vanity. He sites relevant Bible verses and examples from history to support he views of each subject addressed. The second work A Geographical Description of all the Countries of the World gives a brief though opinionated description of each country with the inclusion of random facts. For example: "Bengala is a large country ... the inhabitants are a most subtle, and wicked people: Men, and Women given much to uncleanness ... Adultery is punished with the losse of their noses. In this Country are many Rhinoceroses." The third section discuss the four main plantations of the English in America (Virginia, New England, Bermudas, and Barbados). In the fourth section Examples of the Wonderful Works of God in the Creatures, Clarke briefly describes amazing or unusual plants, beasts, fish, rivers, and works by man. The second volume comprised of an addition to "A Mirrour" includes further thoughts on many attributes discussed in part one along with a few new ones. This set is bound in the original leather boards with gilt leather title and volume labels to spines. Both volumes have been expertly rebacked using the original boards. The spines are not original but they are early; they date from the mid to late 1700s. The boards and spines are scuffed and well-worn. The leather along the head of spine of volume one chipped and beginning to pull. The interiors are foxed with occasional spots of soiling, closed tears, and worm holes. There is dampstaining to the bottom edges of Volume I. Very good condition. All edges are red. Looking-Glass 702 pages; Geographical Description of all the Countries of the World 293 pages; Four Chief Plantations of the English in America 85 pages; Examples of the Wonderful Works of God in the Creatures 35 pages; Looking-Glass part II 772 pages.

The bulk of Ogilby&#39;s America is taken from Arnoldus Montanus&#39;s De Nieuwe en Onbekeende Weereld, published at Amsterdam the same year, supplemented with information on New England, New France, Maryland, and Virginia supplied to Ogilby by the proprietors of these colonies. There are two issues of the book. The first had only Dutch map and views, and these were replaced in the second issue by a number of important maps drafted from English materials, for example the map of Barbados present here.

      [Madrid. 1671].. 16 leaves. Folio. Dbd. Upper outer corners numbered in contemporary manuscript. Minute toning at foredge, primarily on first leaf. Overall very good. In a half morocco and cloth box. The petition of Don Pedro Nuño Colon de Portugal, descendant of the explorer, Christopher Columbus, and sixth Duke of Veragua and Marquis of Jamaica, requesting that Mariana of Austria, Queen Regent of Charles II of Spain, make some compensation for the loss of income the Duke had suffered since the British took Jamaica in 1655. Jamaica had been the exclusive fief of the descendants of Columbus since 1536 when it was given as a reward to the family. This document is dated 1671 by the text at the top of the second leaf, where the Duke refers to Spain&#39;s cession of Jamaica to Great Britain "last year in 1670." Despite this date, some scholars assert a date of 1672. Since most of the text is devoted to the life of Columbus, the document is, by default, also one of the few early biographies of the explorer. In his argument the Duke puts special emphasis on the tremendous gain Spain received by virtue of his ancestor&#39;s discovery. In citing various sources he estimates that within the first 170 years after its discovery, the New World had produced for Spain some one billion, 190 million pesos. Despite these figures, the present heir to Columbus&#39; titles and estates was reduced to an income of sixteen thousand ducats. The Duke mentions no specific amount of compensation that he would like for Jamaica, but points out that Puerto Rico is of approximately the same worth. The last four pages are a glowing description of Jamaica, its towns, people, products, etc., ending with an itemized accounting of just how much rent the island had produced annually for the Duke before the British occupation (40,950 pesos silver). Two years after this petition was printed, the Duke was made the 26th viceroy of New Spain - a fair reward for the loss of Jamaica. His term, however, was short. He reigned only six days before dying in Mexico City. "This is the final petition sent to the throne of Spain, and contains a long account of the various descendants of Columbus and their claims on Spain, an account of Jamaica, and a list of the various dues received from Jamaica" - Maggs. The previously mentioned biographical content of the present document is important. It is possibly an assimilation of the sixteen-page folio manuscript of the life of Columbus written by Juan de Solorzano Pereira, the famous Spanish jurist and fiscal of the Council of the Indies in 1628, responsible for the great work on colonial American law, the POLITICA INDIANA, published in 1629. In that manuscript Solorzano states that it was composed at the request of the Duke&#39;s branch of the Columbus family, forty- two years before the present document was printed. The Solorzano manuscript is described in the LeClerc catalogue of 1878 (item 137), along with other documents relating to the Duke&#39;s branch of the family. One of the earliest Columbus biographies, married to an eloquent plea by his impoverished heirs. Extremely rare. Palau locates only one copy of the original, at the Real Academia de la Historia. EUROPEAN AMERICANA locates two more (Huntington and British Library). Not on OCLC. The petition was reprinted by the Mill Press in San Francisco in 1992. PALAU 57250. BIBLIOGRAPHIA COLOMBINA, p.190.
