In 1670, after nomination by Prince William of Orange, Morton was created a Doctor of Medicine at Oxford, afterward establishing a practice in London. He became a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians 9 years later, eventually becoming one of the physicians-in-ordinary to the King. This work, possibly inspired by William III's respiratory problems, was dedicated to William, and Ôestablished his reputation at home and abroad for over a centuryÕ; Ôduring the reign of Queen Anne it was one of the text-books advised for reading by the apprentices of the Society of Apothecaries by private tutors in anatomy and pathologyÕ. Herein, Morton broke "with the very widespread prejudice against the use of anatomical dissection as a means of improving medical knowledge. As a result he was Ôthe first to describe the characteristic enlargement of the thoracic glands, in particular the tracheo-bronchial and broncho-pulmonary groups that were later to be shown to be of great significance in the pathogenesis of the diseaseÕ" (ODNB, also Trail, as quoted by ODNB). Per G&M, "Chap. I included the first account of anorexia ner … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dawson, George [1637 - 1700]
London:: Printed for Richard Chiswell,. 1694.. Folio. ¹^4 a - b^4 c^2 A - X^4; 2^A - 2D^4 2E^2. 32.5 cm x 20.5 cm. 1st edition (Lowndes, p. 604; Marvin, p. 257; Wing D-459). [28], 168, T.p. printed in red & black. Printed glosses. "Chap. X" begins new pagination & register, though text continuous.. Early full brown calf, with a modern respining to style. Dark maroon gilt-lettered leather title label to spine second compartment.. Stain to text-block lower corner gradually diminishing, with minor. worming, primarily in the stained portion, affecting margins only.. Lower outer margins of first few leaves neatly restored. Some other. odd soiling, nothing obtrusive. A solid VG copy of an uncommon title.. Per the DNB, Dawson "an English jurist, educated at St. John's College, Cambridge, where he graduated B.A. in 1658-9, M.A. in 1662, and was presented by his college to the vicarage of Sunninghill, Berkshire, where he died in 1700, aged 63." This his only known published work. Termed by some as 'ambitious, it have been described as "one of the most interesting, but now completely forgotten, treatises on natural law to be printed in late-seventeenth-century England. Despite its many qualities, the treatise was published, albeit very handsomely by Richard Chiswell, in a very limited edition... and it simply failed to reach the relevant audience", a circumstance which, no doubt, accounts for its scarcity in the modern antiquarian law market.

Henri Desbordes 1694 - Amsterdam, Henri Desbordes, 1694. 2 vol. petits in 8 de [18]-588pp., 624pp., reliures en demi basane havane à coins de 1'époque, dos lisses ornés de doubles filets dorés, pièces de titre de maroquin marron clair très légèrement frottées, pièces de tomaison de maroquin noir très légèrement frottées, titre doré, charnières et dos très légèrement frottés, coupes frottées, plats en papier brut beige avec quelques légères salissures, chiffres écrits au crayon marron sur les premiers contreplats de chaque volume, tranches bleues, fers gravés sur la page de titre, bon et bel exemplaire. Cette oeuvre fut commandée par le Cardinal Jules Médicis, le futur Pape Clement VII, en 1520. Il ne s'agissait pas de faire un panégyrique de la République florentine, mais bel et bien sans glorifier les Médicis, de traiter et d'exposer une histoire qui aurait tout naturellement porté au pouvoir ces derniers. Composée en huit livres, l'oeuvre s'articule comme suit: dans le premier livre est exposée une histoire générale de l'Europe depuis la chute de l'Empire romain jusqu'à l'année 1215. Dans le second livre commence véritablement l'histoire de Florence avec l’opposition des clans Buondelmonti/Donati et Uberti/Amidei, qui selon Dante Alighieri serait à l'origine du conflit entre les Guelfes et les Gibelins. Les livres II, III, IV décrivent les événements précédant l'arrivée des Médicis au pouvoir. Les livres suivants traitent des nombreuses luttes de pouvoir qui aboutissent à la Seigneurie des Médicis. Enfin, le dernier livre se termine par la mort de Laurent de Médicis … [Click Below for Full Description]

AGRIPPA, Heinrich Cornelius
London: printed by R. Everingham for R. Bentley, and Dan. Brown,, 1694. By Henry Cornelius Agrippa, Knight, Doctor of both Laws, Judge of the Prerogative Court, and Counsellour to Charles the Fifth, Emperour of Germany. Octavo (183 × 110 mm). Eighteenth-century sprinkled sheep, double green morocco labels, red morocco date label at foot, sides with double blind rules, red sprinkled edges. Engraved portrait frontispiece. Early ownership inscription at head of title ("Strathnaver", courtesy title of the heir of the earl of Sutherland). Spine worn at head, joints starting at foot but holding firm, an excellent copy. Third edition of the second English translation of Agrippa's De incertitudine et vanitate scientiarum (Antwerp, 1530), first translated into English by James Sanford (1569, repr. 1575), succeeded by this new seventeenth-century translation in 1676, 1684, and 1694. A highly influential work of Renaissance scepticism, De incertitudine et vanitate scientiarum is intended to bring the reader to a position of Christian fideism, though one in which Christian faith is thoroughly infused with Hermetic and Kabbalistic motifs. Agrippa's scepticism about science centres on the point that the senses are too often deceived; therefore "the way of truth is shut up from the senses", and sciences rooted in them are "uncertain, erroneous and deceitful". Appeals to authority are no more acceptable, as the scholastics reply to any questioning of their first principles with torture and execution of so-called heretics.

No place or name of printer, 1694.. FIRST EDITION 1694, small 8vo, 170 x 105 mm, 6¾ x 4¼ inches, engraved frontispiece of the King, pages (2), iii-xvi, 320, with errata at foot of final page, bound in modern quarter calf over marbled sides, gilt dividing line, raised bands and gilt rules to spine, gilt lettered title, all edges gilt. Small pale damp stain at inner edge of frontispiece and title page, showing faintly intermittently throughout the volume, occasional small pale brown stain, a little spotting to last 50 pages, mostly to top outer corner, last 20 pages foxed and last 6 pages browned, of which 1 has tiny chip to fore-edge and final page has 2 tiny chips to upper margin, browned pages all easily legible. A very good tight copy of a scarce work. First 3 words of title in Greek letters. The frontispiece which is an imitation of the one in Charles I's Eikon Basilike shows the King kneeling before a table covered with a cloth decorated with the fleur-de-lis and on which is a crown and sceptre; above and to his left is a female figure seated on a cloud, possibly one of his mistresses. "This is a malignant attack on Charles II, of unknown authorship, representing him as a Roman Catholic throughout. There are seventy-seven chapters, caricaturing the 'Eikon' and dealing with various episodes in the King's career, some of which have mock prayers at the end". See Madan, A New Bibliography of the Eikon Basilike, page 111, No. 132. Pages 309-315 contain two papers, found in the strong box and published in 1686, setting out the King's reasons for turning Ro … [Click Below for Full Description]

1694. On offer is a superb manuscript letter dated 29th of September Entrevaux handwritten by the noted Captain de la Contardiere interesting letter on a variety of military subjects: the King's ordnances being stolen, a Council of War, a large number of maladies besetting the King's army, issues with a particular Lieutenant Colonel in the Regiment etc. De la Contardiere is famous for his defense of Entrevaux in 1704. The historical background is fascinating: King Louis XIV of France having accepted the throne of Spain for his grandson, Philippe of Anjou, found himself in war against Austria, England, Holland and the Duchy of Savoy. These events are known as "The War of the Spanish Succession: 1701 to 1713". The army of the Duke of Savoy, Victor-Amedee was mobilized to invade Provence. The garrisons of the forts of Entraunes and Rabbets, in its possession, were reinforced. The English fleet under Admiral Rook blocked Antibes, preventing with the French reinforcements of the Le chevalier de Damas from returning to Entrevaux with artillery. Le chevalier de Blaignac with 1,500 Savoyard troops and two fauconneaux [small field guns] went up the valley of Estron and placed his seige at Entrevaux, which was defended by a valorous soldier, the Captain de la Contardiere, a friend of Vauban [the great expert on fortifications]. The new fortifications, which were not completely finished, were to stand the test of fire on June 7, 1704. The artillery of the fortress was not yet in place. The bourgeois garrison and militia had ten arquebuses with hooks, in addition to the individual arma … [Click Below for Full Description]

Juni 1694, und der Einweihungsfeier der neugegründeten Universität am Folgetag. - Da die Hallenser Ritterakademie den Bedürfnissen der aufstrebenden Stadt nicht mehr genügte, sollte auf Friedrichs Wunsch im südlichen Herzogtum Magdeburg eine neue Universität entstehen.

Die herausragenden an der Gründung beteiligten Gelehrten waren der Rechtsgelehrte und Philosoph Christian Thomasius (gleichzeitig erster Prorektor der Universität) und der Philosoph Christian Wolff. - "Erscheinungsjahr wurde überdruckt von 1684 auf 1694" (VD 17).
