        El perfecto artificial, bombardero y artillero, que contiene los artificios de fuegos marciales, nuevo uzo de bombas, granadas, y practica de la artilleria, y mosquete, &c.

      Brusselas: En casa de Lamberto Marchant Small 8vo (15.5 cm; 6.125"). [8] ff., 66 [i.e., 196] pp., [2] ff. (index), 9 fold. plates.. 1699 Fernández de Medrano (1646–1705) was the "director de la Academia Real y Militar de el Exercito de los Payses Bajos." The first edition of this work on bombs, muskets, grenades, fireworks, artillery, etc., appeared from the Foppens press in 1691; this second edition is revised and augmented. Its planned publication was interrupted by the "disturbing" news of Louis Hennepin's discoveries in the New World and Fernández de Medrano's decision to first publish an abridged Spanish-language edition of Hennepin's Nouveau Voyage. Our author's worry about foreign incursion into Spain's New World hegemony was then further exasperated, as he explains in his preface here, by news of the Scots attempt to establish a colony at Darien. For Fernández de Medrano these events made the need for an improved edition of this martial manual all the more obvious. The text is printed in a utilitarian roman, with only one woodcut initial and no woodcut ornaments. The => nine folding plates were engraved by Jacobus Harrewijn, after designs by the author's students. Searches of NUC and WorldCat locate only three U.S. libraries reporting ownership of this edition. Contemporary Spanish sheep in the Valenciana style; plain boards, modest gilt tooling on spine, partially surviving leather spine label. Overall age-toning; modest worm trail in some foremargins, not costing words; one plate with repaired partial fold tear. => A rather nice copy.

Köln, apud Wilhelmum Metternich, 1712. Tb. in Rot-Schwarz-Druck, 3 Bll., 198 S., 8 Bll. Berühmtestes forensisch-kasuistisches Werk über das Reichskammergericht. - Gaill (1526-1587), aus einem alten Kölner Patriziergeschlecht stammend, studierte an den Universitäten Köln, Orléans und Löwen, promovierte 1555 in Bologna und praktizierte zunächst in seiner Vaterstadt als Anwalt. 1558 - 1568 war er Beisitzer am Reichskammergericht zu Speyer, ab 1569 am Reichshofrat in Wien und in den letzten Jahren seines Lebens als Kanzler beim Kurfürsten in Köln tätig. Gail gilt als Begründer der Kameralistik, der Literatur zur Rechtsprechung des Reichskammergerichts. In seinen 1578 erstmals erschienenen Practicae observationes, die vielfach wiederaufgelegt, mehrfach ins Deutsche übertragen und zuletzt 1771 gedruckt worden sind, versucht Gail erstmals eine systematische Darstellung der Rechtsprechung des Reichskammergerichts. In 316 observationes werden Rechtsfragen und Rechtsprobleme erörtert, die vor diesem höchsten reichsrechtlichen Gericht immer wieder erörtert und diskutiert worden sind. Diese umstrittenen und oft sehr schwierigen Rechtsfragen werden in einzelnen, meist kurzen Abhandlungen dargelegt, kontrovers aufgeschlüsselt und die Entscheidung begründet.Nur so ist auch der ungeheuere Einfluß dieses Werkes zu erklären; es stand bezüglich des Reichsgerichts unerreicht, ist von ähnlichen Werken nur von denen eines Mevius und Carpzov erreicht worden. Der angebundene Titel \"de pace publica\" ist eine staatsrechtliche Abhandlung von Gaill. Das Werk behandelt den Landfrieden und die Reichsacht. Zu beiden Themenkreisen legte Gaill erstmals eine systematische Bearbeitung vor. Der sog. \"ewige Landfrieden\" war gerade aufgrund der Konfessionsstreitigkeiten zwischen Katholiken und Protestanten ein wichtiges und beliebtes Thema innerhalb des Jus publicum. Gaill untersucht auch die Reichweite des Landfriedens, vor allem seine Geltung innerhalb des geistlichen Standes: damit auch die Kompetenzen des Reichskammergerichts. Versand D: 2,00 EUR 4.3.

        Traité universel des drogues simples, 1699

      Laurent d? Houry 1699 Nicolas Lémery, né à Rouen le17 novembre 1645 et mort à Paris le 19 juin 1715, fut un pharmacien (apothicaire) et un chimiste français. Il enseigna pendant plus de vingt - cinq ans la chimie et la pharmacie à de nombreux étudiants qui venaient de tous les pays de l'Europe , il fut l'un des premiers auprès du grand public à démythifier la chimie et à la débarrasser des oripeaux de l'alchimie. Si son Cours de Chymie a fait autorité pendant un siècle, ses autres publications n'en ont pas moins connu au siècle des Lumières un réel succès populaire. On compte la Pharmacopée universelle (1697), , et l'ultime opus, le Traité de l'antimoine(1707) . Son Traité universel des drogues simples fut publié pour la première fois en 1698 et s' appellera ultérieurement un Dictionnaire universel des drogues. Deuxième Edition de 1699 par Laurent d' Houry, reliure plein cuir d' époque avec un dos lisse orné de caissons gravés à l' or fin, intérieur en bon état, format in 4, 841 pages.

        ACTES ET MEMOIRES DES NEGOCIATIONS DE LA PAIX DE RYSWICK.

      Haye. . 1699 - Three volumes. Two folding plates and several folding tables 12mo. Modern half cloth and marbled boards, leather labels. Some interior staining, a few pages (including titlepages) chipped around edges. A good set. Exhaustive compilation of all of the state papers and preliminaries leading to the Treaty of Ryswick of 1697. The Treaty of Ryswick concluded the conflict known as King William's War, begun when William and Mary overthrew James II of England, who fled to France and persuaded Louis XIV to take his side. The war saw heavy fighting in Hudson's Bay and Canada, and frequent Indian incursions against settlers in New England. The West Indies were also a center of conflict, and several islands changed hands during the war. Because of the desire of the British to obtain peace, concessions were made here to allow the French to keep much of what they had seized in Hudson's Bay, laying the ground for further conflict and displeasing many British traders. Elsewhere, the status quo ante was reverted to, with much seized territory changing hands back to the pre-war kingdoms, and with no provisions made in the treaty to address the outstanding territorial grievances, which only led to later conflict. EUROPEAN AMERICANA notes a British edition published in 1698, and surmise that this French edition would have been published then as well, and they therefore list it under the year 1698, giving Jacques Bernard credit for editing the work. A scarce compilation, not in Sabin, LeClerc, or TPL. DAVENPORT 84. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 698/19. KOSSMANN 274.

Whoever the author, this was a rejection of Spain's claim that the Scots settlement at Darien was an intrusion on Spanish territory, and an appeal for assistance from England in making the colony a success. * ESTC locates copies only at BL + TCD + Columbia + NYPL.

Brauner Ganzlederband der Zeit auf fünf Bünden mit goldgeprägtem Rückentitel, sehr reichen floralen Goldprägungen und Kantenvergoldung; dreiseitiger Rotschnitt; mehrfarbig illustrierte Vorsätze. Deutsche Fassung des von König Christian V (1646 - 1699) erlassenen Dänischen Gesetzbuchs (Danske Lov) von 1683, das die bis dahin geltenden regionalen Rechtsordnungen (Jütisches Recht, Schonisches Recht und Seeländisches Recht) ersetzte und erstmals ein einheitliches dänisches Recht konstituierte. Die Verabschiedung des Gesetzes spiegelte die Einführung des Absolutismus in Dänemark im Jahre 1660 wider. Als rechtliche Grundlagre der absoluten Herrschaft wurde zunächst 1665 die Lex Regia, das Königsgesetz, erlassen. Das Königsgesetz wurde erst 1709 veröffentlicht, das Dänische Gesetzbuch von 1683 nahm aber in seinem ersten Buch bereits Teile davon vorweg. \"Das Dänische Gesetzbuch war ein Ergebnis der politischen Umwälzungen, die dem König eine zentrale Stellung einräumten und nach Rechtseinheit strebten.\" Für Norwegen wurde 1687 ein analoges Gesetz erlassen (vgl.: Ditlev Tamm,Werner Schubert,Jens Ulf Jørgensen [Hrsg.]: Quellen zur dänischen Rechts- und Verfassungsgeschichte (12 .- 20. Jahrhundert), Frankfurt am Main, Peter Lang, 2008, S. 20).

        Commentarius in harmoniam sive concordiam quatuor evangelistarum....

      Parisiis: Excudebat Joannis Anisson 4to (12.6 cm, 10.25"). 2 vols. in 1. I: [2] ff., xvi, 661, [1] pp., [25] ff.; 3 plts. II: [2] ff., lxiv, 326 pp., [15] ff.; 3 plts.. 1699 Bernard Lamy (1640–1715) was an Oratorian priest, philosopher, and biblical scholar. After getting himself exiled to Grenoble for excessive Cartesianism, he went on to do significant work in biblical studies, and this present work is especially notable: Lamy here contends that Jesus died on the cross on the eve of the Passover (thus at the same time as the Passover lamb was being killed), not during the first day of the Passover. This view, while considered radical at the time, is now generally held by biblical scholars. This work was first published under the title Harmonia, sive concordia quatuor evangelistarum in 1689. This second edition is printed in small roman types with some italic, Greek, and Hebrew. Ornaments include an ornate woodcut fleur-de-lis on the title-pages, plus initials and headpieces. Vol. II (bound in) consists of the Apparatus chronologicus et geographicus, chronologies and geographical descriptions with three fine fold-out plates: a map of Judea, a plan of Jerusalem, and a plan of the temple. Provenance: Charles Spencer, Third Earl of Sunderland, lot 7230 in the Sunderland Library sale (1882). 18th-century vellum over boards with raised bands, lightly soiled; on the covers an ornate mandorla inside a composite frame. Crack in the vellum along front joint, joint itself sound. Ex-library with paper labels on spine; old pressure-stamps, including one on title-page of vol. I. Upper outer corner of title-leaf lost taking part of one letter of title; small tear into printed border of first map in vol. II. All edges speckled blue and red. A stout, substantial volume.

        A defence of the Scots settlement at Darien. With an answer to the Spanish memorial against it. And arguments to prove that it is the interest of England to join with the Scots, and protect it. To which is added, a description of the country, and a particular account of the Scots colony.

      No place [Edinburgh?]: No publisher/printer Small 4to (20 cm; 8"). [2] ff., 60 pp.. 1699 As the 1690s wound down the lords and and burghers of Scotland dreamed of an overseas empire such as Spain, England, Portugal, and the Dutch had, and to this end came into existence the Company of Scotland for Trading to Africa and the Indies. Chartered in 1695 and with a coffer of some £400,000, it established a colony ("Darien") on the Caribbean coast of what is now Panama, a worse location being hard to conceive. Even today that site is virtually uninhabited. Trouble plagued the enterprise from the arrival of the first Scots in 1698 and it fairly shortly collapsed for lack of supplies, malaria, other diseases, internal dissension, a nonexistent trading base, and the might of the Spanish military in the region. The wreck of the scheme led to an economic crisis at home which in turn helped enable the 1707 Act of Unification. The vast bulk of this work attempts to convince the English to support the Scots' enterprise and cites political, religious, social, and economic reasons for doing so; clearly, the Scots knew that English naval might in particular would be essential for the success of the scheme. Beyond this, however, a section (pp. 42 to 51) addresses the natural history, native population, agricultural commodities, and indigenous industry of the region; and the work ends with an account of the Scots' settlement, the buildings erected there, and its intercourse with the indigenous people. Authorship of this work is problematic: It is signed "Philo-Caledon" at the end of the dedication and three other names have have been proposed as possible authors in addition to Foyer's — George Ridpath, Andrew Fletcher, and John Hamilton (2nd Baron Belhaven). Added to the conundrum of authorship, the work was produced in four editions in the same year, each having different numbers of pages, each with a different signature scheme, none with a publisher, and this one without even a place of publication! 20th-century half dark brown crushed morocco with brown linen sides. This copy has all the hallmarks of having once been through a British bookseller's "hospital": all leaves are dust-soiled or age-toned; all leaves are uncut but some have been extended and others not, and some leaves with torn margins (but not all) have had lost paper restored; all such repairs and extensions are within the first six leaves, meaning these were probably supplied from another copy. Top of title-leaf trimmed with loss of "A" of the title; another leaf with a tear to the top margin with loss costing tops of several letters of words on one page, and two leaves with the running head guillotined by a binder; some stray stains. An interesting copy for its probable if problematic history and condition.

        Het Niew Hollandt

      Venice, 1699. A little foxing and toning, one blank margin irregular, very good condition overall.. Engraved gore sheet, 485 x 335 mm (sheet size); framed. A gore sheet, designed to be pasted onto a globe, and an important map of Australia: this single sheet by the great Venetian cartographer Coronelli shows the north western coast in some detail. This particular gore is famous for the fanciful depiction of inland Australia, and shows Arnhem Land complete with palm trees, reindeer and elephants.This detailed map was first engraved as a gore - or globe segment - for Coronelli's colossal terrestrial globe of 1688. Measuring over one metre in diameter, this was one of the largest printed globes ever produced; its engraving was of the highest order, and reflected the most up-to-date and accurate information available at the time. It particularly reflects the discoveries made during the first voyage of Abel Tasman in 1642.The gore offered here, with relevant text at the bottom and verso of the sheet, was probably from the set of twelve plates published in atlas format in the 1696-97 edition of Coronelli's Isolario and later in his Libro dei Globi.

Il dénonce la superstition liée aux malheurs prochains annoncés par le passage d'une comète et l'habitude générale de ramener tout ce que l'on ne comprend pas à une action divine, parce que les connaissances de l'époque ne permettaient pas d'expliquer son origine, sa formation ou, par exemple, le fait qu'elle ait une queue, la comète devenait un présage divin. À ce titre, Bayle n'annonce pas seulement les "Lumières", mais fonde la figure de l'« intellectuel critique » aux prises avec les défis de son temps. ¶ Caillet n°860 "Ouvrage fort savant... l'auteur y étudie toute les traditions, croyances... l'astrologie, la démonologie, la magie, la cabbale..."

        ISTORIA DELL' EDITTO DELL' IMPERATORE DELLA CINA, IN FAVORE DELLA RELIGIONE CRIS

      Torino MDCIC [1699], Battifta Zappata. Original old vellum,. solid, some old lettering on covers, first fly & bottom of. title page, else clean, index, 254p., 11 x 17 cm., Italian. text, 11 x 17 cm., front end paper annotated. FIRST EDITION. AN EARLY JESUIT ACCOUNT OF CHINA FROM 1699 Carlo [Charles] Le Gobien, 1653-1708*** [***note:discrapency regarding is date of birth continues]. * The next information was extracted from the Catholic Encyclopedia: ""Le Gobien....was a French Jesuit and founder of the famous collection of "Lettres édifiantes et curieuses", one of the most important sources of information for the history of Catholic missions, b. at St­Malo, Brittany, 25 November, 1671; d. at Paris, 5 March, 1708. He entered the Society of Jesus on 25 November, 1671. As professor of philosophy and especially while procurator of the Franco-Chinese mission, he sought in a series of admirable papers to awaken the interest of the cultivated classes in the great work of Christianizaing Eastern Asia. In 1697 appeared at Paris his "Lettres sur les progréz de la religion à la Chine". Apropos of the violent literary feud then in progress concerning the so-called "Chinese Rites", he published among other things **"Histoire de l'édit de l'empereur de la Chine en faveur de la religion chrétienne avec un éclaircissement sur les honneurs que les Chinois rendent à Confucius et aux morts" (Paris, 1698) [** This is the exact title we now offer here.]; and in the year 1700: "Lettre à un Docteur de la Faculté de Paris sur les propositions déférées en Sorbonne par M. Prioux". Under the same date there appeared in Paris the "Histoire des Isles Mariannes nouvellement converties à la religion chrétienne". * The second part, translated into Spanish by J. Delgado, is found in the latter's "Historia General de Filipinas" (Manila, 1892). In 1702 Père Le Gobien published "Lettres de quelques missionnaires de la Compagnie de Jésus, écrites de la Chine et des Indes Orientales"; this was the beginning of the collection soon to become celebrated under the title of "Lettres édifiantes et curieuses écrites des missions étrangéres par quelques missionnaires de la Compagnie de Jésus". * The first eight series were by Pére le Gobien, the latter ones by Fathers Du Halde, Patouillet, Geoffroy, and Maréchal. The collection was printed in thirty-six vols. duodecimo (Paris, 1703-76), and reissued in 1780-81 by Fathers Yves, de Querbeux, and Brotier in twenty-six vols. duodecimo, unfortunately omitting the valuable prefaces. New editions appeared in 1819, 1829-32, and 1838-43. One abridgment in four vols. octavo, was entitled "Panthéon Littéraire", by L. Aimé Martin (1834-43). * A partial English translation came out in London in 1714. The publication incited the Austrian Jesuit Stöcklein to undertake his "Neuer Welt Bott" (about 1720), at first considered merely a translation, but soon an independent and particularly valuable collection (five vols., folio in forty parts) substantially completing the "Lettres Edifiantes" (see Kath. Missionen, 1904-05). "" End of quotation from the Catholic Encyclopedia. ** CONTENTS: Prefazione, In cui fi da' notizia delle principali sette, che oggidi han piu feguito nella Cina. + Libro Primo: Istoria dell' editto dell' Imperador della Cina a favore della religione Criftiana, pp.11-83.. + Libro Secondo: Istoria dell' editto dell' Imperador della Cina a favore della religione Criftiana, pp.84-169. + Dichiarazione fatta al serenissimo dvca del Maine intorno a gli onori, che i Cinefi fanno a Confufioi, e a i Morti, pp. 173-254. + Indice delle cose piu notabili [[7] unnumbered pages. ** A truly fascinating early primary resource on late Ming-early Ch'ing court intrigue, with a lovely essay on Confucianism, perceived at the time by Jesuits to be the main religious dogma in competition with Catholic & Christian teachings. * EDITION: This is the First Italian Edition. * CONDITION: The book is by and large a lovely copy, in its original vellum binding.
