Engraved portrait of Pindar and large title page vignette by M. Burghers. Pindar Π?νδαρος (c. 522 – c. 443 BC) was an Ancient Greek lyric poet from Thebes. Of the canonical nine lyric poets of ancient Greece, his work is the best preserved. Although he probably spoke Boeotian Greek he composed in a literary language that tended to rely more on the Doric dialect . There is an admixture of other dialects, especially Aeolic and epic forms, and an occasional use of some Boeotian words. He composed 'choral' songs. Scholars at the Library of Alexandria collected his compositions in seventeen books organized according to genre: 1 book of Humnoi – "hymns" 1 book of Paianes – "paeans" 2 books of Dithuramboi – "dithyrambs" 2 books of Prosodia – "processionals" 3 books of Parthenia – "songs for maidens" 2 books of Huporchemata – "songs for light dances" 1 book of Enkomia – "songs of praise" 1 book of Threnoi – "laments" 4 books of Epinikia – "victory odes" Of this vast and varied corpus, only the Epinikia – odes written to commemorate athletic victories – survive in complete form; the rest survive only by quotations in other ancient authors. PHLEGON, of Tralles in Asia Minor, Greek writer and freedman of the emperor Hadrian, flourished in the 2nd century A.D. His chief work was the Olympiads, an historical compendium in sixteen books, from the 1st down to the 229th Olympiad (776 B.C. to A.D. 137), of which several chapters are preserved in Photius and Syncellus. Two small works by him are extant: On Marvels, containing some ridiculous stories about prophecies and monstrous births, but instructive as regards ancient superstitions; On Long-lived Persons, a list of Italians who had passed the age of 100, taken from the Roman censuses. Other works ascribed to Phlegon by Suïdas are a description of Sicily, a work on the Roman festivals in three books, and a topography of Rome. Graesse 5 p295; Brunet 4 p659; Dibdin II 289.

His maps of ancient geography, characterized by careful, accurate work and based largely on original research, are especially valuable. He left unknown areas of continents blank and noted doubtful information as such; compared to the lavish maps of his predecessors, his maps looked empty. His first serious map, that of Ancient Greece, was published when he was fifteen. At the age of twenty-two, he was appointed one the king's geographers, and began to attract the attention of first authorities. D'Anville's studies embraced everything of geographical nature in the world's literature, as far as he could muster it: for this purpose, he not only searched ancient and modern historians, travelers and narrators of every description, but also poets, orators and philosophers. One of his cherished subjects was to reform geography by putting an end to the blind copying of older maps, by testing the commonly accepted positions of places through a rigorous examination of all the descriptive authority, and by excluding from cartography every name inadequately supported.

Modern, professional Hardcover-bindings (Half leather with gilt lettering on spine). Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Slight foxing throughout. Includes for example the following essays: Vol I: On the Distinguishing Characters of Animals, Plants, and Minerals / The analogies between the plant and animal, arising from their structure and organs, their growth and nourishment, their dissemination and decay / Of the Organs and General Structure of Animals / How far peculiarities of structure are connected with peculiarities of manners and dispositions / Of the Respiration of Animals / Air necessary to the existence of all animated beings etc etc. Vol II: Of the utility in Method in every department of Science, and particularly in Natural History / Methodical arrangement into tribes and families, both in the animal and vegetable kingdoms, is evidently founded in Nature / An historical and characteristical Account of the writings and arrangements of the principal anicent and modern Naturalists / Of the Multiplication and Continuation of Species / Of Singularities in the Mode of Multiplying among certain Animals etc etc. William Smellie (5 February 1697, Lanark 5 March 1763, Lanark) was a Scottish obstetrician. He practiced medicine before getting a license, but enrolled later at the University of Glasgow and received his M.D. degree in 1745. After training in obstetrics in London and Paris, he opened a practice in London and began teaching. He invented a "machine", an obstetrical manikin, for instructions. Smellie described the mechanism of labour, designed obstetrical forceps, devised a maneuver to deliver the head of a breech, and published his teachings. He is believed to have painted his own portrait. Use of forceps by W.Smellie The William Smellie Memorial Hospital which provided maternity services in Lanark closed in the early 1990s and was re-located to a unit at the Law Hospital in Carluke. This was also closed recently and maternity services moved to Wishaw General Hospital. It has been alleged that Smellie was involved with either murdering or showing a callous disregard for where his corpses came from (as well as his former pupil William Hunter,and brother John Hunter). The supporting evidence for this theory includes the large number of pregnant corpses Hunter was able to obtain. However, this is widely contested by scholars, and so the debate continues. The tomb in which William Smellie (and later his wife) was buried still stands in the St. Kentigerns section of the state run Lanark graveyard. (Wikipedia).

George Sale (1697, Canterbury, Kent, England 1736, London, England) was an Orientalist and practising solicitor, best known for his 1734 translation of the Qur'an into English. He was also author of The General Dictionary, in ten volumes, folio. He was educated at the King's School, Canterbury, and in 1720 became a student of the Inner Temple. It is known that he trained as a solicitor in his early years but took time off from his legal pursuits, returning at need to his profession. Sale was an early member of the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge. Sale became seriously ill for eight days before his death, and died at Surrey Street, The Strand, of fever on November 13, 1736. Sale was buried at St. Clement Danes. His family consisted of a wife and five children. He took the time to apply himself in the study of the eastern and other languages, both ancient and modern. Carolus Dadichi, the king's interpreter, helped Sale in his studies of oriental dialects. Sale reputedly spent 25 years in Arabia, thus acquiring his knowledge of the Arabic language and customs this was the basis of Voltaire's statements in the Dictionnaire Philosophique (articles Alcoran, Arot and Marot). On the other hand Harold Lyon Thomson, writing in the Dictionary of National Biography, stated that he never left his native country. In 1734, Sale published the translation of the Qur'an, dedicated to John Lord Carteret. Sale provided numerous notes and a "Preliminary Discourse" which was manifest with in-depth knowledge of Eastern habits, manners, traditions, and laws. Voltaire bestowed high praise on Sale's version of the Koran. Sale did not, however, place Islam at an equal level with Christianity.He stated: "As Mohammed gave his Arabs the best religion he could, preferable, at least, to those of the ancient pagan lawgivers, I confess I cannot see why he deserves not equal respect, though not with Moses or Jesus Christ, whose laws came really from heaven, yet with Minos or Numa, notwithstanding the distinction of a learned writer, who seems to think it a greater crime to make use of an imposture to set up a new religion, founded on the acknowledgment of one true God, and to destroy idolatry, than to use the same means to gain reception to rules and regulations for the more orderly practice of heathenism already established." Sale's translation of the Qu'ran has been reprinted into modern times. In January 2007, Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to the United States Congress, was sworn in on an old edition of Sale's Koran, donated to the Library of Congress in the early 19th century by Thomas Jefferson. Sale was also a corrector of the Arabic New Testament (1726) issued by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge. He acquired a library with valuable rare manuscripts of Persian, Turkish, and Arabic origins (which is now held in the Bodleian Library, Oxford). (Wikipedia)

(Duveen) - R. Lull (ca. 1232 - 1315) katalan. Dichter, Theologe, Missionar, Philosoph wurde wegen seines enzyklopäd. Werks - so auch hier - "Doctor illuminatus" bezeichnet. Er lehrte in Paris u. Montpellier. Ab 1263 versuchte er die alleinige Wahrheit der christl. Lehre zu beweisen um vor allem die arabische Welt zu missionieren. Nach seiner Auffassung muß der Glaube durch den Verstand unterstützt werden, der die Glaubenswahrheiten aus den Prinzipien einer christl. Universalwissenschaft, der "Ars Magna" od. "Ars generalis", so der vorlieg. Titel seines Hauptwerkes, ableitet.

      Zwei Bände in einem, hier in der 2. Auflage von 1697 vorliegend. Frontispiz und Titelblatt fehlen leider, beide wurden aber aus dem Online-Bestand eines Exemplars der SLUB Dresden heraus kopiert und dem Band lose beigelegt. Original beginnt mit der "Vorrede". Orig.Perg., 17 x 21 x 5,5 cm, mit insg. 7 Kupfern von 12 in Bd.1 (T XII ausklappbar), sowie 2 Kupfern in Bd.2 (so cptl.), 599 und 230 S. Pergament alters- und nutzungsbedingt (Kochbuch!) stärker fleckig, aber ohne Einrisse oder Fehlstellen größerer dunkler Fleck am Buchschnitt unten rechts, zahlreiche Seiten naheliegender Weise in unterschiedlichem Maße fleckig, vereinzelte Seiten lose. Insgesamt aber ordentlich erhaltenes und sammelwürdiges Exemplar, das (falls erwogen) eine buchbinderische Restauration lohnt. Zweifellos eines der ältesten und schönsten Kochbücher Deutschlands. Entsprechend selten. Historischer Hintergrund: Die erste Aufl. dieses frühen Deutschen Kochbuchs wurde 1692 gedruckt. Nach Anna Wacker (1597) aus Basel ist die Autorin die zweite Frau, von der in deutscher Sprache überhaupt ein Kochbuch gedruckt wurde. Maria Sophia Schellhammer war die Tochter des Mediziners und Juristen Hermann Conring, der sich als Professor insbesondere mit Ernährungsproblemen beschäftigte. Sie wuchs in Altdorf u. Nürnberg auf und heiratete später den Mediziner Christoph Schellhammer. Die ersten beiden Ausgaben von 1692 und 1697 publizierte die Autorin noch anonym, erst 1703 namentlich unter dem erweiterten Titel "Brandenburgisches Kochbuch".

So nahm er den bürgerlichen Namen Francisci - nach dem Vornamen seines Vaters - an. Durch seine schwächliche Natur an den Schreibtisch gefesselt, erlangte er in kurzer Zeit einen bedeutenden Ruf als Autor und Polyhistoriker.

Einband leicht berieben, vorderes Gelenk leicht gelockert, feines Ex. EA dieses Hauptwerks des Schülers von Christian Wolff. Thümmig wurde am 12. Mai 1697 zu Helmbrechts als Sohn des dortigen Pfarrers und nachmaligen Subdiakonus in Culmbach Georg Peter Thümmig geboren. Auf dem Lyceum zu Culmbach und der Fürstenschule zu Heilsbronn vorgebildet, begab er sich 1717 nach Halle, um bei Wolff, dessen philosophisches System ihn lebhaft anzog, persönlich zu hören. Wolff nahm in sehr wohlwollend auf, machte ihn zu seinem Famulus und suchte ihn in jeder Weise zu fördern. Nachdem Thümmig 1721 die Magisterwürde erworben hatte, begann er in Halle Vorlesungen zu halten, und zwar unter so großem Beifall, daß er schon zwei Jahre darauf, trotz der Opposition von Wolffs Gegnern, zum ordentlichen Professor der Philosophie ernannt wurde. Als nun aber 1723, infolge der fortgesetzten Machinationen Joachim Langes und anderer Widersacher, Christian Wols die bekannte geharnischte Cabinetsordre erhielt, die ihn seines Lehramts entsetzte und ihm binnen achtundvierzig Stunden den preu- . ßischen Staat zu räumen befahl, floh Thümmig in Begleitung seines Meisters nach Marburg. Auf Wolffs dringende Empfehlung wurde er 1724 als Professor der Philosophie am Collegium Carolinum zu Cassel angestellt. Thümmig starb, erst dreißig Jahre alt, zu Cassel am 15. April 1728. Diese Erstausgabe von allergrößter Seltenheit.

        The Praise of York-shire Ale Wherein is enumerated several sorts of Drink, with a Discription 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. The third edition. 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. 2 p.l., 124 pp. Small 8vo, early 19th-cent. blue morocco by C. Lewis (title a little dusty, small portion of outer upper corner of title carefully renewed at an early date), triple gilt fillet round sides, spine richly gilt, orange morocco lettering piece on spine, a.e.g. York: J. White for F. Hildyard, 1697. Third edition and best edition, greatly enlarged, of this important contribution to the study of contemporary northern English dialect and pronunciation. George Meriton (1634-ca. 1711), was a legal writer and owner of Castle Leavington in the North Riding of Yorkshire. "In 1683 he published A York-shire Dialogue in its Pure Natural Dialect at York. A second edition appeared in 1685, also at York, with his poem 'The Praise of York-shire Ale' and a pioneering dialect glossary, preceded in print only by John Ray's; a third edition with additional dialect material was published in 1697."-ODNB. The book is divided into four parts. The first part (pp. 1-78) provides the poem, a lively narrative of a Rabelaisian jaunt by Bacchus and his court to Northallerton, Easingwold and York, consuming astonishing quantities of the "humming Yorkshire ale." The second (pp. 79-81) is entitled "Some Observations concerning the Dialect and various Pronunciation of words in the East-Riding of Yorkshire." The third part (pp. 83-85) is a "Collection of Significant and usefull Proverbs, some of which are apropriated to York-shire" and the fourth part (pp. 89-124) is the glossary. Fine copy with the bookplate of William Gott. This copy passed on to his son, John Gott (1830-1906), bishop of Truro. He owned a perfect First Folio and a number of Shakespeare quartos. The most important Shakespeare volumes were directly purchased by Folger but the remainder was sold at Sotheby's (see De Ricci, p. 181). This copy sold for the remarkable figure of 215 pounds (20 & 21 March 1908, lot 143). With an early note on the rear free flyleaf: "t/x Hibberts sale. 1839 i/x binding by C. Lewis 1831.".

        Discourses on the Publick Revenues, and on the Trade of England. In two Parts.

      London: James Knapton,, 1697?8. Viz. I. Of the Use of Political Arithmetick, in all Consideration about the Revenues and Trade. II. On Credit and the Means and Methods by which it may be restored. III. On the Management of the King's Revenues. IV. Whither to Farm the Revenues, may not, in this Juncture, be most for the Publick Service? V. On the Publick Debts and Engagements... Part I. To which is added, a Discourse upon improving the Revenue of the State of Athens. Written originally in Greek, by Xenophon; and now made English from the Original, with some historical Notes; by another Hand [Walter Moyle]. [? Part II. Discourses ? which more immediately treat of the Foreign Traffick of this Kingdom ? To which is added, the late Essay on the East-India Trade. By the same Hand]. Four works bound in 2 volumes, octavo (183 x 105 mm). Contemporary speckled calf rebacked to style, brown morocco labels, raised bands, covers with a blindstamp rule border with floral spray cornerpieces, all edges speckled red. With 4 folding tables. Pastedowns with armorial bookplate of Lord Sinclair and early manuscript shelf labels; 19th-century Basel University Library stamp to front free endpaper of Volume 1, half-title and titles; partially erased inscription to title in Volume 1. Boards rubbed, small insect damage to fore edge of front board of Volume 1, small hole to margins of title in Volume 1 and sig. Ccc2 in Volume 2. A very good copy. First edition of this important early work on economics. Sir Charles Davenant (1656?1714), MP and, at the end of his life, Inspector-General of Exports and Imports, took many years to become recognized as an economist of the first rank, a fact explained by the sophistication of his thought. Part I of the present Discourses contains five essays, on "Political Arithmetic" (described by Schumpeter as treating its subject with "unsurpassable fairness"), credit, and other matters of public finance. Part II contains essays on trade. The Essay on the East-India Trade was first published in 1696. Schumpeter classifies the "impressive total" of Davenant's contributions to economic analysis under four heads: "(1) there is, implicit but clear, behind all his writings the awareness of the logic of the relations by which things economic hang together; (...) (2) he substantially improved (...) his epoch's acquirements in the theories of money and of international trade and finance; (3) he was one of the first authorities of his time on public finance ? taxes, debts, and so on; (4) he was one of the few who understood, and co-operated in, the work of Political Arithmetick" (History of Economic Analysis, p. 211).

      By G.M. Gent. 2 p.l., 124 pp. Small 8vo, early 19th-cent. blue morocco by C. Lewis (title a little dusty, small portion of outer upper corner of title carefully renewed at an early date), triple gilt fillet round sides, spine richly gilt, orange morocco lettering piece on spine, a.e.g. York: J. White for F. Hildyard, 1697. Third edition and best edition, greatly enlarged, of this important contribution to the study of contemporary northern English dialect and pronunciation. George Meriton (1634-ca. 1711), was a legal writer and owner of Castle Leavington in the North Riding of Yorkshire. "In 1683 he published A York-shire Dialogue in its Pure Natural Dialect at York. A second edition appeared in 1685, also at York, with his poem 'The Praise of York-shire Ale' and a pioneering dialect glossary, preceded in print only by John Ray's; a third edition with additional dialect material was published in 1697."-ODNB. The book is divided into four parts. The first part (pp. 1-78) provides the poem, a lively narrative of a Rabelaisian jaunt by Bacchus and his court to Northallerton, Easingwold and York, consuming astonishing quantities of the "humming Yorkshire ale." The second (pp. 79-81) is entitled "Some Observations concerning the Dialect and various Pronunciation of words in the East-Riding of Yorkshire." The third part (pp. 83-85) is a "Collection of Significant and usefull Proverbs, some of which are apropriated to York-shire" and the fourth part (pp. 89-124) is the glossary. Fine copy with the bookplate of William Gott. This copy passed on to his son, John Gott (1830-1906), bishop of Truro. He owned a perfect First Folio and a number of Shakespeare quartos. The most important Shakespeare volumes were directly purchased by Folger but the remainder was sold at Sotheby's (see De Ricci, p. 181). This copy sold for the remarkable figure of 215 pounds (20 & 21 March 1908, lot 143). With an early note on the rear free flyleaf: "t/x Hibberts sale. 1839 i/x binding by C. Lewis 1831.".

      London: James Knapton, 1697–8 - Four works bound in 2 volumes, octavo (183 x 105 mm). Contemporary speckled calf rebacked to style, brown morocco labels, raised bands, covers with a blindstamp rule border with floral spray cornerpieces, all edges speckled red. Pastedowns with armorial bookplate of Lord Sinclair and early manuscript shelf labels; 19th-century Basel University Library stamp to front free endpaper of Volume 1, half-title and titles; partially erased inscription to title in Volume 1. Boards rubbed, small insect damage to fore edge of front board of Volume 1, small hole to margins of title in Volume 1 and sig. Ccc2 in Volume 2. A very good copy. With 4 folding tables. First edition of this important early work on economics. Sir Charles Davenant (1656–1714), MP and, at the end of his life, Inspector-General of Exports and Imports, took many years to become recognized as an economist of the first rank, a fact explained by the sophistication of his thought. Part I of the present Discourses contains five essays, on "Political Arithmetic" (described by Schumpeter as treating its subject with "unsurpassable fairness"), credit, and other matters of public finance. Part II contains essays on trade. The Essay on the East-India Trade was first published in 1696. Schumpeter classifies the "impressive total" of Davenant's contributions to economic analysis under four heads: "(1) there is, implicit but clear, behind all his writings the awareness of the logic of the relations by which things economic hang together; (.) (2) he substantially improved (.) his epoch's acquirements in the theories of money and of international trade and finance; (3) he was one of the first authorities of his time on public finance – taxes, debts, and so on; (4) he was one of the few who understood, and co-operated in, the work of Political Arithmetick" (History of Economic Analysis, p. 211).
