Sehr seltene in Salzburg gedruckte Festschrift für das Kloster Raitenhaslach zum 600jährigen Gründungsjubiläum des Zisterzienser-Ordens. 1098 gründete der Benediktiner Robert von Molesme der Abtei Molesme das Kloster Cîteaux in Frankreich. Mit einer schönen Vogelschau-Ansicht des Klosters, im Hintergrund die Salzach sowie Burghausen. Das Kloster Raitenhaslach ist eine ehemalige Abtei der Zisterzienser, heute im Gemeindegebiet der Stadt Burghausen und der Diözese Passau gelegen. Das Areal für das Kloster Raitenhaslach wurde 1143 durch Graf Wolfher von Wasentegernbach und seiner Frau Hemma gestiftet. Vom ursprünglichen Gründungsort Schützing an der Alz wurde das Kloster schon 1146 nach Raitenhaslach verlegt, das bereits 788 in der Notitia Arnonis als Besitz des Bistums Salzburg zum ersten Mal urkundlich erwähnt worden war. Grund für den Umzug nach Raitenhaslach soll in erster Linie die strategische Klosterpolitik des Bischofs Konrad I. von Salzburg gewesen sein. Das Kloster besaß eine ganze Reihe von abgabenpflichtigen Dörfern im weiten Umkreis, daneben unter anderem ein Weingut im heutigen Niederösterreich und einen großen Teil des heute in Oberösterreich liegenden Weilhartforstes auf der anderen Seite der Salzach. 1803 wurde das Kloster Raitenhaslach im Zuge der Säkularisation aufgelöst.

        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.

        Les plans et les descriptions de deux des plus belles maisons de campagne de Pline le Consul. Avec des remarques sur tous les bâtimens, et une Dissertation touchant l'architecture antique & l'architecture gothique

      Paris: Florentin & Pierre Delaulne, 1699. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary French mottled calf, gilt in 6 compartments, red morocco spine label in the second. Preserved in a fine green linen folding case. Binding expertly rebacked, preserving original spine, corners renewed; IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. Octavo. 6 ff., 189 pp. + 23 pp. With 7 engraved plates (of which 5 are folding) FIRST EDITION OF THIS PIONEERING WORK WHICH FORESHADOWED THE RISE OF ROMANTIC CLASSICISM. In the present volume, the Tuscan and Laurentine gardens and villas owned by Pliny the Younger (2nd century A.D.) are completely reconstructed through the analysis of Pliny's own detailed letters. The text appears in Latin with Felibien's French translation and his copious notes, printed in Roman type over the whole page. Seven engraved plates illustrate the villas with their surrounding gardens (one of which is large and folding, ca. 43 x 25 cm). Felibien also reproduces the description of the Laurentine villa by Scamozzi (the great Renaissance architect), who records discrepancies that occur in the Pliny documents. Scamozzi's text appears in the original Italian with Felibien's French translation and notes. * The volume concludes with Felibien's justly famous dissertation on the origins of architecture (p. 169-189). Felibien here outlines "gotique ancien" and "gotique moderne," which correspond roughly to the Romanesque and Gothic. Significantly, the author suggests that early medieval architecture was derived from the imagery of CAVES, while Gothic itself was inspired by FOREST GROVES (cf. R.D. Middleton's article "The Abbe de Cordemoy and the Graeco-Gothic Ideal: A Prelude to Romantic Classicism" in: Journal of the Warburg and Courtauld Institutes, XXV, 1962, 2-3, pp. 299-302). Felibien promotes the classical style over the gothic, the former 'founded on nature's principles', the latter 'opposed to nature.' * Jean Felibien des Avaux (ca. 1656-1733), French classicist architect, was secretary to the Academie d'Architecture; he succeeded his father as Historiographer of the Royal Buildings, and was treasurer of the Academie des Inscriptions et Belles Lettres. §§§ REFERENCES: See Millard, French p. 188, and Millard, English, p. 64.

        A Dissertation upon the Epistles of Phalaris. With An Answer to the Objections of the Honourable Charles Boyle, Esquire

      London: J.H. for Henry Mortlock and John Hartley, 1699. Second edition, expanded. A8, a-d8, e8 (lacks e7), f8,B-Z8, Aa-Mm8, Nn6.

Bentley Settles Boyle's Hash Richard Bentley (1662-1742), a noted critic and scholar in Classical Antiquities, was part of a close group of friends which included John Evelyn, Sir Christopher Wren, John Locke, and Isaac Newton. In the 1690s a famous controversy on the Letters of Phalaris arose out of a misinterpretation of Bentley's acts as a librarian. Sir William Temple, in publishing his Ancient and Modern Learning (1692), took up the question of the relative worth of ancients and moderns, siding with the former in every aspect of science, art and literature; in particular, Temple pointed out the merits of the letters of a certain ancient known as Phalaris whose authenticity was much doubted among scholars of the day - but believed by Temple. In 1695 Charles Boyle decided to publish an edition of the letters and sought to borrow a manuscript from the king's library at St. James (where Bentley was librarian) that it might be collated, and he hired a collator through a bookseller. Bentley loaned the manuscript for a sufficient amount of time, but when the collator failed to finish his job by the end of the allotted time, the collator reported to Boyle that the task had not been completed due to the inconsiderate behavior of Bentley. Boyle published his edition of the letters with a blatant criticism of Bentley's supposed behavior. In 1697 William Wotton published a second edition of his Reflections on Ancient and Modern Learning, in which, in contrast to Temple, he takes the side of the moderns, and Bentley added to it an essay of his own in which he refuted the authenticity of the Phalaris letters and criticized the edition by Boyle. A group of scholars loyal to Boyle subsequently gathered together to publish Dr. Bentley's Dissertations on the Epistles of Phalaris and the Fables of Aesop, examin'd by the Honourable Charles Boyle, Esq., in mockery of Bentley. In 1699, Bentley published this response to Boyle, which settled the dispute in a decisive fashion.

Some internal dampstaining at outer margins, a few leaves repaired; overall, very good. The Art of Firing a Mortar Blondel (1618-1686), brilliant mathematician, architect engineer, and topographer, was admitted to the Royal Academy of Sciences in 1669. He became director of the Royal Academy of Architecture in 1671, was appointed director of public works for the city of Paris by Louis XIV in 1672, and in 1673 became mathematics tutor to the dauphin. Earlier, "during his infantry service, Blondel had been amazed at the crude methods of the French bombardiers," and devised practical rules for determining the angle of a mortar sometime in 1677. The printing of Blondel's solution in L'ART DE JETTER LES BOMBES "was delayed by order of Louis XIV, who hardly cared to have the enemy profit by it. The French gunners, however, paid no attention to it until 1731 ..." (DSB).

        America North and South Newly represented... "Totius Americae Septrionalis et Meridionalis Novissima Representatio quam ex singulis Geographorum Tabulis collecta luci publicae accommodavit

      Americas: Nuremberg Homann, Johann Baptist c1720. Copper engraved map of the continent of America by Johann Bapt. Homann from his "Grosser Atlas". Original colour, verso blank. Decorative title cartouche and vignette showing native Americans and the fauna and flora of the country, with another cartouche surrounding a description of discoveries, black and white as issued. The title cartouche is based upon De Fer's landmark map of 1699. The top cartouche is based upon De L'Isle's 1703 map of Canada. The map is a revision of the elder Homann's 1710 map of the Americas. After his death in 1724, his son (Johann Christoph Homann) re-engraved the plate to correct the western coastline of North America, shown here extending very far west and north, with very little detail. California is no longer shown as an island, although the remnants of the interior sea can be seen near the Pais de Moozemleck, and a hint of a hoped for Northwest Passage is beginning to take shape. The Great Lakes are taking shape, being actively explored by the French fur traders and Hudson Bay Company. Good dark impression, generally bright and clean; slight soiling to lower corners; short centrefold split at lower margin [40m just entering scale lines with old tape repair to verso]; slight unobtrusive vertical crease to right of centrefold. Johann Baptist Homann (1664 ?" 1724) from 1687 Homann worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house. Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as recommendation for potential customers. In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece "Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt" Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, in business until 1848, known as "Homann Erben", "Homanniani Heredes", "Heritiers de Homann" abroad.

        A Collection of Original Voyages: containing I. Capt. Cowley's Voyage round the Globe. II. Captain Sharp's Journey over the Isthmus of Darien, and Expedition into the South Seas, Written by himself. III. Capt. Wood's Voyage thro' the Streights of Magellan. IV. Mr. Roberts's Adventures among the Corsairs of the Levant; his Account of their Way of Living; Description of the Archipelago Islands, Taking of Scio, &c

      London: James Knapton, 1699. Octavo, with three folding maps and three engraved plates, two woodcuts in the text, with the three pages of publications by Knapton bound in at the rear; an attractive copy in contemporary full polished calf, bookplate of Frederick Ellis. English ships in the Pacific. Scarce first edition of this famous collection, one of the important works issued by the publisher Knapton to capitalise on the best-selling account of Dampier's first voyage to the South Seas. The first three voyages recounted here all deal with English buccaneers in the Pacific, perhaps the most important being that of Cowley, who sailed for many months with Dampier in the early 1680s. Cowley's narrative is accompanied by a fine world map which marks his track across the Pacific to Guam, China and then through the Straits of Sunda and the Cape of Good Hope.The work was prepared by William Hacke, who was himself a buccaneer. Although he is now known chiefly for this compendium, he had made his living selling rutters, manuscript atlases copied from the "derroteros" plundered from Spanish vessels.Hacke's collection brings together the accounts of four voyages which provide important source material, particularly for the history of the buccaneers. Although the voyages of the buccaneers were private enterprise expeditions, they were responsible for considerably extending geographical knowledge: Cowley sailed further south than had previously been done, and named some of the Galapagos Islands. Similarly, Sharp provides perceptive observations on Panama and the west coast of South America and was the Captain responsible for carrying off a Spanish atlas in 1680, 'from which Hacke made several highly important manuscript atlases' (Hill). The two concluding voyages which make up the collection are those of Wood, who was with Sir John Narborough during his crucial navigation of the Magellan Straits and the straight-talking Roberts, press-ganged onto a corsair in the Levant.Not averse to massaging history, Hacke in his role as editor literally created the fictional 'Pepys Island.' The account of Dampier and of his cohort Cowley were fractionally different in the mapping of the Sebald de Weerts (now the Falklands) and Hacke falsified Cowley's journal so as to invent an island and name it after the diarist Samuel Pepys, then Secretary to the Admiralty. Burney writes incredulously that this error persisted in the charts for a full century because 'it seems never to have been generally understood, that Dampier and Cowley were at this time in the same ship, and their voyage thus far the same'.Hacke's work was part of the canonical group that was later reissued by Dampier's energetic publisher Knapton in the complete four-volume Dampier.

      London: Printed for James Knapton, at the Crown in St.Paul's Church-yard. 1699 - pp. [viii], 224, [14 index], [2 pub. ad]; copper-plate illustrations: 1 pull-out map and 3 pull-out illustrations. Small 8vo in contemporary full panelled calf with tooled patterns on front and back and five raised bands on spine. Binding is secure with boards firmly attached, though hinges are cracked and the spine ends are worn - fore-corners show a lighter degree of wear. Text block is sturdy with all leaves present and securely held; some leaves have fingermarks, and vary in degree - other blemishes throughout, but they are lighter and are mainly to fore-margins; a neat repair (without use of tape or strips) of a closed terar to lower corner of p177/178. Bright, clear illustrations - but they do have some flaws: map has a ragged fore-edge, but detail is not affected; illustration facing p28 ("The Indian's Manner of Bloodletting") has a ragged and truncated fore-edge, resulting in a 2cm approx. right hand strip of illustration missing - however, most of this illustration is present with both parties in the blood-letting scene visible; illustration facing p102 is complete, but has a lengthy middle fold split; illustration facing p140 also complete, but also has a lengthy middle fold split, as well as a 1.5cm closed tear and split along a third of the length of the inner fold. Pevious owner name and a line of crossed out writing (all are possibly contemporary) to front paste-down - a more recent previous owner inscription (with 1840 date) to upper margin of title page; and below the paragraph on p45 is a crossing-out, which does show through to other side. Overall a decent first edition copy in its contemporary binding. [Attributes: First Edition]

"Il toponimo Bolzano è attestato già nell'VIII secolo come "Bauzanum, Bauzana, Pauzana" e "Pozana", dai quali sono derivate l'odierna forma tedesca "Bozen" (conosciuta già nel 1133, nell'età moderna scritta anche "Botzen" o "Potzen") e quella italiana (nel 1223, nell'età moderna anche nella variante "Bolgiano")"

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, Orleans 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.

        Several essays in political arithmetick: the titles of which follow in the ensuing pages.

      London, Clavel and Peacock, 1699. 8vo. Nice contemporary full calf, rectangular blindtooled frames and central panel "mirror" on covers, Cambridge-style binding. Five raised bands with red leather title-label with gilt lettering to spine. Hinges weak. Spine rubbed and genral wear to extremities. Library label pasted on to pasted down front free end-paper. Internally fine and clean - A fine copy. Pp. (8), 5-103, (2), 105-139, (21), 161-276.. The exceedingly rare first printing (reprinted in 1711 and 1755) of this collection of Petty's essays on demography and economics containing his landmark work "Political Arithmetick", first published in 1690, in which he anticipated many of the ideas later proposed by the classical economists: The division of labor and the general advantage of free trade. By stating that he sought to express himself in "Number, Weight or Measure" - quantitative data - he is regarded as being one of the very earliest statisticians. Most of Petty works concerning economics and demography were published posthumously, the present collection of essays - being the first collected edition - proved especially important in the spread of Petty's ideas on these subjects. "The scope of Petty's interests and scale of his achievements were enlarged after his death: first, with the publication of his Political Arithmetic in 1690 and Political Anatomy in 1691, and then of other papers. This process has still to be completed. The writings, if sometimes repetitive and frequently utopian, provide abundant detail of the physical and human geography of seventeenth-century Ireland and England. They also show Petty's formidable intellectual prowess, especially as the originator of statistical analysis under the name of political arithmetic.What Petty wrote, about both Ireland and England, blended exact statistical information with fanciful projections. True to his belief in the empirical method, learned on the continent early in the 1640s, he aimed to end idle speculation by expressing all in 'number, weight and measure'. This statistical precision certainly added to the novelty and authority of The Political. Arithmetic and Anatomy of Ireland. The precision owed much to his access to the cadastral data which had been collected under his own auspices during the down survey, and later when poll and hearth taxes were levied in Ireland and as bills of mortality enumerated and classified the dead both in London and Dublin." (ODNB)."Petty (1623-87) was a self-made man - physician, surgeon, mathematician, theoretical engineer, member of parliament, public servant, and businessman - one of those vital people who make a success of almost everything they touch, even of their failures. Though he paid the price of his versatility, his is one of the great names in the history of economics. [...]By Political Arithmetick we mean the art of reasoning by figures upon things relating to government. The art itself is undoubtedly very ancient... [But Petty] first gave it that name and brought it into rules and methods." (Schumpeter). "Petty's importance for 17th-century culture is undeniable. His search for an 'objective' science contributes to the paradigm shift that was taking place at the time. In this regard his part in the creation of the Royal Society went hand in hand with his development of the new science of 'political arithmetick'. [...] His influence on subsequent developments was decisive: immediate followers (for example, Gregory King and Charles Davenant) definitively established the sciences of demography and economic statistics, while Petty's conceptual framework, adopted by Cantillon, exerted a decisive influence on the development of Quesnay's economic thinking. Petty's relevance for the development of Classical political economy is emphasized by Karl Marx, who considers Petty to be the 'Founder of Classical political economy'". (New Palgrave). The essays included in this volume are (each essay with a title page in both English and French):An essay concerning the multiplication of mankind (1698) Further observations upon the Dublin bills (1698) Two essays in political arithmetic (1699) Observations upon the cities of London and Rome (1699) Five essays in political arithmetic (1699) Political arithmetick, or a discourse concerning the extent and value of lands (1699).Garrison-Morton 1688Norman 1688Mattioli 2799Katalog der Carl Menger=Bibliothek 500Wing P-1937

Gobien sopra gli honori che li Chinesi prestano a Confucio ed ai morti. Unito con: Documenta controversiam missionarium apostolicum Imperii Sinici De cultu.

      appresso gli Heredi di C. d'Egmond,, Colonia, 1699 - 2 opere in un volume in 8° piccolo (150 x 100), pp. (12) 644 (10, 1c.b.) 257 (3). Legatura piena pergamena dell'epoca. Buon esemplare. Traduzione in italiano contemporanea a quella originale in francese stampata a Bruxelles. Alexandre Noel (1639-1724) fu storico e teologo francese, domenicano, accanito avversario dei Gesuiti. Professore e rettore del Collegio di San Giacomo, poi provinciale a Parigi, insegnante alla Sorbona di Parigi, rimase nell'alveo del sistema tomista, pur indulgendo a un moderato gallicanesimo, di moda fra i teologi francesi del suo tempo. Criticò aspramente l’atteggiamento dei gesuiti nei confronti dei riti cinesi accusandoli di accettare alcuni aspetti della spiritualità cinese. Cfr. Melzi, I p. 74; Barbier, I/245; Cordier, Bibl.
