        A New Discourse of Trade,

      London: John Everingham, , 1693. wherein is Recommended several weighty Points relating to Companies of Merchants. The Act of Navigation. Naturalization of Strangers. And our Woollen Manufactures. The Ballance of Trade. And the Nature of Plantations, and their Consequences in Relation to the Kingdom, are seriously Discussed. And some Proposals for erecting a Court of Merchants for determining Controversies, relating to Maritime Affairs, and for a Law for Transferrance of Bills of Debts, are humbly Offered. Octavo (150 × 88 mm). Twentieth century tree calf, decorative gilt spine with dark red and black labels, all edges gilt, inner dentelles, marbled endpapers. Bookplate of the bibliophile Samuel Ashton Thompson Yates on front pastedown. Bound without the final blank but with the Imprimatur leaf before the title page, a few running headlines just shaved by the binder. A very attractive copy. First published in 1690 as A Discourse about Trade. Sir Josiah Child (c.1631 - 1699) economic writer and merchant. "In 1690 he published under his own name the comprehensive Discourse about Trade, which included his Proposals for the Relief and Employment of the Poor, which had appeared earlier as an undated pamphlet. This work was reprinted in 1693 under the title A New Discourse on Trade to coincide with a new attempt in parliament to reduce the legal maximum rate of interest ( ... ) Child acquired considerable fame as an economic writer in his own day and was both widely read and frequently quoted. His works were reprinted continuously during the eighteenth century and published in French in 1754. He exerted influence because of his fluent and persuasive pen, his debating skills, and his obvious success in and experience of business" (ODNB). As Geoffrey Poitras notes "Child is another of the truly remarkable individuals populating the early history of financial economics. Child has some status as a noteworthy, pre-Smithian economist ( ... ) His status as Governor of the East India Company was matched by his stock trading acumen" (The Early History of Financial Economics, 1478-1776, 2000, 322).

      Halle, Christoph Salfeld, 1693.. - Vorgebunden: Derselbe. Historia Sapientiae et Stultitiae. 3 Bände in 1. 8, 213; 158 S.; 2 Bl., 275 S. Ebenda 1693.. Zwei äußerst seltene komplette Monatsschriften, die eine mit deutschem, die andere mit lateinischem Text, die - entgegen Beckers und der herrschenden Auffassung - unabhängig voneinander sind. Die deutschsprachige Zeitschrift enthält meist unbezeichnete Aufsätze über Luther, Böhme, den Ketzer David Georg, über Mäßigkeit, über das Sehen eines Wahnwitzigen, usw. Die Beiträge der lateinischen Zeitschrift stammen überwiegend von Jacob Thomasius, Christians Vater. Christian Thomasius (1655-1728), streitbarer Professor in Leipzig und Halle, war der erste, der seine Vorlesungen in deutscher Sprache hielt, "eine unerhört revolutionäre That". Als "der Begründer des deutschen Aufklärerthums und Journalismus ... lebt Th. hauptsächlich im Gedächtnisse der Nation weiter, ein zorn- und witzsprühender Eiferer gegen alles Niedrige und Beschränkte, gegen allen Schulen- und Regelzwang, ... mehr Vertreter des sog. gesunden Menschenverstandes und Agitator als Gelehrter, trotz aller gelegentlich dabei an den Tag gelegter Gelehrsamkeit" (ADB). Nachdem er sich in seiner Vaterstadt Leipzig mit aller Welt überworfen hatte, ging er - mit Ratstitel und Gehalt aus Berlin ausgerüstet - nach Halle, wo er Vorlesungen halten durfte, aus denen dann die juristische Fakultät hervorging, der Kern der Universität Halle. "In den ersten Jahren mußte Th. den Schülern ... Alles in Allem sein ... Er hielt ihnen nicht nur Vorträge über die gesammte positive Rechtswissenschaft, ... sondern er nahm auch praktische Uebungen in dem Gebrauch der deutschen Sprache, in der Logik und Rechtsanwendung mit ihnen vor, ja kümmerte sich um ihre Manieren, ihren äußeren Anstand; so bot er ihnen nicht nur in seiner einzigen Person eine ganze philosophische und eine ganze juristische Facultät, sondern selbst den Lehrmeister in Dingen, welche Schule und Elternhaus verabsäumt hatten" (ADB). - Kein vollständiges Exemplar im JAP seit 1950. - Gering gebräunt. Gelegentlich Wurmspuren, sonst gutes Exemplar. - VD17 23:298757Z, 1:068847K u.a. Becker 43 und 42. Lieberwirth 89 und 90. Diesch 43 und 42. Kirchner 4365 und 4364.

        Tenga Latina, fig. 1

      Amsterdam 1693 - Hendrik Adriaan van Rheede tot Draakenstein was a Dutch traveler, the one time Governor of Cochin and a naturalist whom worked for the Dutch East India Company in the 17th century. In 1693 he published his work, “Hortus Indicus Malabaricus,” in twelve volumes. This publication is the oldest comprehensive book printed on the natural plant wealth of Asia and of the tropics, specifically the south Indian Malabar region. Van Rheede’s “Hortus Indicus Malabaricus” is the result of 30 years of compiling and editing information from a team of the best of 17th century European physicians, scientist, technicians, illustrators and engravers, whom collaborated with scholars from all over India. It is of great importance today as a rare record of the plant wealth of Kerala (India) and medicinal uses of those plants, and is the only source of information about ancient Indian medicinal plants. Comprising 1,595 pages of text, all in Latin, the original book contains descriptions and illustrations of 742 plants. Included in the plant descriptions are the medicinal properties of the plants, the respective diseases for which they were used for treatment and the modes of treatment as known to the ancient, renowned traditional physicians of Malabar (Kerala). This fine hand-colored engraving titled "Tenga Latina, fig. 1" from “Hortus Indicus Malabaricus,” measures 15.25” x 19” and is in excellent condition with evidence of previous repair to the central crease and light staining and foxing in the margins. As illustrated on this plate, the plant is described by its names in the regional language of Malayalam, which was the language used by the natives of Cohin during the 17th century. These coconut trees show off the different sizes and lengths of the tress as well as the roots and other, smaller palm trees. A large palm extending from the center to the right of the engraving details the branch of the tree. This dynamic engraving is richly colored with shades of green and brown with precise lines to define and detailed the plants.

Importantissimo e fondamentale trattato per la storia della teoria della prospettiva, con le due parti provenienti da due diverse versioni ma "entrambe in prima edizione". La Prima parte appartiene alla versione bilingue latino-italiana (rispettivamente in caratteri corsivo e tondo) e la Seconda parte appartiene alla versione bilingue italiano-tedesco (entrambi in carattere tondo). Il lavoro del Pozzo fu sostanzialmente nuovo e originale, in quanto concepito per soddisfare le esigenze pratiche di architetti, scenografi e pittori, senza però mai allontanarsi dall?'esattezza scientifica. In questo senso il libro segna un ritorno alla trattatistica di prospettiva da parte di ?"operatori?" artistici, che per quasi tutto il ?'600 ne avevano praticamente lasciato il monopolio agli uomini di scienza. Nella prima parte dell?'opera sono trattati i canoni basilari della materia e le regole fondamentali con la loro applicazione ai differenti ordini architettonici. Nella seconda parte il Pozzo descrive un procedimento originale per disegnare la prospettiva, applicato a cupole, altari, fontane, scale e a vari elementi architettonici. Il libro si conclude con la descrizione della tecnica dell?'affresco, profondamente conosciuta e spesso utilizzata dal Pozzo. Cfr. Studi e documenti d?'architettura, n. 9-10 - Riccardi,I,317-318: ?"Queste due parti furono più volte ristampate in Roma e furono tradotte in tedesco, francese e inglese - Berlin Kat.,4725 - Comolli,III,173: ?"Ecco la miglior opera che abbiamo in questo genere.. Uscì per la prima volta in Roma nel 1693 e 1700 nella Stamperia del Komarek in due grandi tomi in folio..?" - Fowler,251 - Cicognara,854 - Cat. n. 1 (1983) Libreria Archivolto, p. 68. Lievi arross. solo margin. a un vol., altrimenti esemplare su carta distinta ben conservato. Opera molto rara. "Andrea Pozzo, pittore, architetto e teorico della prospettiva (Trento 1642 - Vienna 1709). Lavorò dapprima a Milano, dove entrò nella Compagnia di Gesù, poi a Genova, a Venezia, nell?'Emilia, a Mondovì e a Torino. Chiamato a Roma nel 1681, vi svolse un?'inensa attività e vi compì il suo capolavoro: la grandiosa decorazione della tribuna e della volta di S. Ignazio, raffigurante la gloria del Santo (1685-91 ca.). Per invito di Leopoldo I si recò a Vienna nel 1703 e vi rimase sino alla morte. Somma dell?'illusionismo barocco è il trattato teorico ?"Prospectiva pictorum et architectorum?" (1693-1702)". Così Diz. Treccani, IX, p. 716.

        Tagera, Fig. 53

      Hendrik Adriaan van Rheede tot Draakenstein was a Dutch traveler, the one time Governor of Cochin and a naturalist whom worked for the Dutch Each India Company in the 17th century. In 1693 he published his work, “Hortus Indicus Malabaricus,” in twelve volumes. This publication is the oldest comprehensive book printed on the natural plant wealth of Asia and of the tropics, specifically the south Indian Malabar region.Van Rheede’s “Hortus Indicus Malabaricus” is the result of 30 years of compiling and editing information from a team of the best of 17th century European physicians, scientist, technicians, illustrators and engravers, which collaboration of scholars from all over India. It is of great importance today as a rare record of the plant wealth of Kerala (India) and medicinal uses of those plants, and is the only source of information about ancient Indian medicinal plants.Comprising 1,595 pages of text, all in Latin, the original book contains descriptions and illustrations of 742 plants. Included in the plant descriptions are the medicinal properties of the plants, the respective diseases for which they were used for treatment and the modes of treatment as known to the ancient, renowned traditional physicians of Malabar (Kerala).This fine hand-colored engraving from “Hortus Indicus Malabaricus,” Tagera, Fig. 53, measures 15.25” x 18.5” and is in excellent condition with light staining around the edges and evidence of previous repair to the central crease. As illustrated on this plate, the plants are described by their names in the regional language of Malayalam, which was the language used by the natives of Cohin during the 17th century. Expertly hand-colored, this engraving shows rich green stems and leaves, highlighted and shaded stylistically, with delicate yellow and orange flowers. Also shown on this plant are the seed pods and the roots, adding a scientific inquiry into this plant. Illustrated separately from the plant are the individual sections of the flowers, the pod and the seeds of the plant.

        TRUTH BROUGHT TO LIGHT: or The gross forgeries of Dr. Hollingworth, in his pamphlet intituled, The character of King Charles the First, from the declaration of Mr. Alexander Henderson, &c. detected

      London, printed in the year 1693.. Being a vindication of Mr. Henderson and Dr. Walker, from the Aldgate chaplain’s vile scandals. To which is annex’d, a manifest proof that Dr. Gauden (not King Charles I.) was the author of Icon basilice (Eikon Basilike), by a late happy discovery of his original papers upon that occasion. In a letter from Lieut. General Ludlow to Dr. Hollingworth. FIRST EDITION 1693, no printer or publisher named. Small slim 4to, approximately 190 x 135 mm, 7½ x 5¼ inches, 40 pages, bound in full vellum over boards, single rule gilt border to covers, gilt rules to spine, gilt lettered morocco label. Covers slightly bowed and slightly spotted, armorial bookplate on front pastedown of Bulkeley Bandinel, celebrated librarian of the Bodleian (1781-1861), on the front endpaper is the signature of Henry H. Gibbs, later Lord Aldenham (d. 1907) and on the rear pastedown is Lord Aldenham's armorial bookplate, light brown damp staining throughout, to margins and in places to text, all easily legible. Binding tight and firm. A good working copy of a rare book. Ludlow's name printed on page 34 with the date: October 1. 1692. This is the work of a republican pamphleteer who wrote under the name of General Ludlow, or Edmund Ludlow, Lieut.-general. It concerns the controversy over the authorship of ’Eikon basilike’, which Richard Hollingworth believed was the work of Charles I, whilst the author of this tract, amongst others, believed it to be the work of John Gauden. Madan, in his ’New bibliography of the Eikon basilike’, states that it was in fact written by John Gauden, although it probably includes some authentic writings of the King (No. 173, page 143 in the Appendix on The Authorship Controversy).
