        Sammlung von 51 Aquarellen ungarischer Herrscher.

      wohl Ungarn, ca. 1700.. 51 farbige mit Eiweiß erhöhte Aquarelle auf starkem Karton mit lateinischer Beschriftung im Format 32 x 22 cm,. Die Blätter etwas angestaubt und leicht fleckig, mit leichteren Randläsuren, insgesamt gut erhalten. Die Sammlung basiert auf den ungarischen Herrscherportraits des Werkes "Mausoleum Potentissimorum ac Gloriossimorum Regni Apostolioce Regum et Primorim Militantis Ungariae Ducum" (1664) von Ferenc Nadasdy (oberster Kronrichter und General, 1622 bis 1671). Haltung, Waffen und Bekleidung sind identisch, jedoch mit individueller Freiheit in der zusätzlichen Farbgebung und künstlerischen Ausführung, besonders in Bezug auf den Hintergrund. Vorhanden sind 51 der wohl ehemals 59 Portraits umfassenden Sammlung. In Anlehnung an das oben genannte Werk sind vorhanden 13 der 14 ungarischen Herzöge und 38 der 45 ungarischen Könige. 18 Tafeln (ungarische Könige) von späterer Hand (18. Jahrhundert) nummeriert und mit kurzen Anmerkungen in ungarischen Sprache versehen. Bemerkenswert ist die Farbgebung die sich im Wesentlichen auf ein intensives Blau, Rot, Grün und Gelb beschränkt. Außergewöhnliches, farbenfrohes Ensemble.

        An essay upon the probable methods of making a people gainers in the balance of trade. Treating of these heads, viz. Of the people of England. Of the land of England, and its product. Of our payments to the publick, and in what manner our ballance of trade may be thereby affected. That a country cannot increase in wealth and power but by private men doing their duty to the publick, and but by a steady course of honesty and wisdom, in such as are trusted with the administration of affairs. By the author of The Essay on Ways and Means.> The second edition

      London: James Knapton, 1700. 8vo., (16) + 204pp., with the 6 folding tables as called for, contemporary mottled calf with an old rebacking, small patches of surface wear to joints, later endpapers. A very good sound copy. Wing D.310. Kress 2216. Goldsmiths 3651. Mattioli 887. First published in 1699, this is perhaps Davenant's most coherent treatise on political arithmetic. His front-rank position in the history of economics is mainly based upon his insight into the importance of quantitative arguments, the use of political arithmetic, and his contributions to the theories of money, international trade and public finance. His failure to produce a coherent theoretical system is reflected by his flirtations with both mercantilism on the one hand and almost a free-trade position on the other. The present work includes much in the area of what might now be called 'applied' economics - population studies, marriage, immigration, family incomes, poverty, home consumption and so forth.

Questa carta fu pubblicata per la prima volta nel 1589, nella seconda parte dell'Atlas; venne in seguito ripubblicata innumerevoli volte in molti atlanti pubblicati in tutta Europa. La carta copre la Puglia, con il Gargano e la Terra di Otranto, la Calabria, la Basilicata e una piccola parte della Sicilia. Cartiglio con il titolo, in basso a sinistra, cornice con i gradi di latitudine e longitudine, scala delle miglia italiane, in basso a destra, vascello in alto a sinistra.

      [France, ca. 1760s]. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Bifolium, approximately 10 x 7½ inches. [3]pp. of text. Early folds, light dampstains in corners, mild foxing. Very good, untrimmed, in a fine custom cloth folding case with printed paper label. 18th-century manuscript recipe for the ?"long life elixir?" closely associated with a 17th-century Swedish doctor known variously as ?"Samst,?" ?"Vornets,?" ?"Xermet,?" ?"Yerner,?" ?"Yernest,?" ?"Gernest,?" and, here, ?"Guernai.?" The recipe, which has ancient origins and a millennia-long history of revision and rediscovery, has been widely credited in its present form to the Swedish doctor at least since the 1760s, when several similar manuscripts and a handful of printed notices appeared throughout France. In a 2012 article in the REVUE D?'HISTOIRE DE LA PHARMACIE, ?"> ou… > précieux manuscrit de > nouvellement découvert,?" Jean-Pierre Grelaud argues persuasively for a 1700-1710 date of another recently discovered—and, at this point, earliest known—comparable manuscript, suggesting a date no later than the turn of the 18th century for the death of the Swedish doctor. The true name of the doctor has never been conclusively determined, nor specific details (or proof) of his life uncovered. It is certain, however, that his formula either was derived from or shared common roots with recipes Paracelsus discussed during the 16th century. A consistent key element was Venetian theriac (here, ?"thériaque de Venise,?" known also as ?"Venice treacle?" and therica andromachi), which is usually thought to have originated in Greece, particularly with Andromachus the Elder of Crete, in the first century C.E. This compound traditionally contained viper flesh, scorpion venom, opium, and myrrh among its scores of ingredients and appears to have traveled as far as China in its first several centuries. The elixir of life, in general, appears to have origins as old as Babylon and was discussed extensively by European and Arabic alchemists, eventually attaching itself to the legends of Nicolas Flamel and the Comte de Saint Germain. Most early copies of the present version of the recipe inform us that the original manuscript was found in the papers of a Swedish doctor who died at an advanced age (almost invariably 104, but here 110) from a fall from a horse. The ?"secret?" had existed in his family for ?"several centuries,?" and daily consumption helped his grandfather, father, and mother live similarly long lives (in the present copy, to 130, 112, and 104 years, respectively). The handful of known 18th-century examples of the recipe are remarkably consistent regarding the elixir?'s ingredients and their proportions, method of preparation, and uses. When there is some variation among the lists of ingredients, it tends to occur in the proportion of aloe (this copy shows the greatest amount, at ?"un once et trois gros?" to the single ?"gros?" of most other elements) and rhubarb (here, a gros and a half) and in the specific names used for the different ingredients (e.g., ?"safran du levant?" here is usually ?"le meilleur safran,?" sometimes ?"d?'orient?" or ?"oriental?"). Unique to the present manuscript is an interesting final paragraph referring to a ?"frere Nicolas de friardel,?" presumably a monk at the Augustinian priory of Saint-Cyr at Friardel in Calvados, Lower Normandy. Brother Nicolas has mentioned that using the elixir regularly for two years has largely cured him of a ?"cruel gout?" which had ?"robbed him of the use of his feet and hands.?"

        A LETTER FROM DR. BRAY, TO SUCH AS HAVE CONTRIBUTED TOWARDS THE PROPAGATING CHRISTIAN KNOWLEDGE IN THE PLANTATIONS [caption title]

      [Np, but probably London. 1700].. 3pp. printed on a folded sheet. Folio. Some soiling on final blank page. Overall a very good copy, untrimmed. In a large folding paper board case. A rare printed circular letter written by Bray immediately upon his return from Maryland. Founder of the Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge, Bray was engaged in the important work of establishing parochial libraries in the colonies. In 1695 he was appointed by the governor of Maryland to assist in dividing the province into parishes. While waiting for a new act to be passed, he spent time looking for missionaries to be sent to the province. He found that he could enlist only poor men unable to buy books, and he seems to have made the provision of parochial libraries a condition of his going to Maryland. He was responsible for establishing no less than thirty-nine libraries in North America, the first being that at Annapolis. It was felt that he could do greatest service to the church in Maryland if he returned to England to have the law, which had run into several difficulties, enacted. The opening words of the present letter reflect a sense of urgency: "Being apprehensive that my so sudden Return for England, may occasion some misconstructions...I thought my self in duty...bound, to represent hereby a General View of those Reasons, which have induced me to make it so soon, and unexpectedly." He then gives seven reasons for his return from Maryland: "It is the joint request of the Clergy of MARY-LAND, who...urged me...that I should go over with the Law for England; not that the Quakers are openly, and the Papists more covertly, making efforts against the Establishment of our Church by false representations...That to impose upon them an Establish'd Maintenance for the Clergy, would be prejudicial to the interest of the Province, by obliging so many wealthy Traders to remove from thence. The Falsity of which they thought me best able to make appear, by means of my late Parochial Visitations, throughout the greatest part of the Province...by which...I shall be enabled to give an Account of the Names of all Heads of Families, and of the Religion and Morals of every individual Man, Woman and child, Freeman and Slave, White and Black, throughout MARY-LAND." Bray speaks of the church in America as being but in its "infancy," but goes on to mention the state of religion in Maryland, Pennsylvania, and the East and West Jerseys; and the success of parochial libraries in Pennsylvania, New York, New England, Carolina, Bermuda, and the Leeward Islands. He concludes with a summary of advances and achievements up to the time of the letter, particularly the advances made in educating the black population. This letter is sometimes mistakenly considered an issue from Bradford's New York press (see Evans), but the statements herein make it more probable that it was printed in England after Bray's return in 1700. A rare and important work. SABIN 7478. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 700/28. WING 4293A. EVANS 903. BAER MARYLAND 197.

        The Historical Antiquities of Hertfordshire: with the original of counties, hundreds or wapentakes and hamlets; the foundation and origin of monasteries, churches, and vicarages; the several honors, mannors, and parks of the nobility and gentry; and the succession of the lords each. Faithfully collected from public records, ancient manuscripts and other select authorities

      London: Printed by Ben. Griffin, 1700. First edition, folio, [12], 601, [23]pp., including the very rare leaf "Directions for Placing the Cuts...", mounted engraved frontispiece portrait, title-page printed in red and black, folding engraved map and 44 engraved plates, most double-page or folding, text and plates a little age toned, a couple of plates with splash stains, marbled endpapers, full blue nineteenth-century morocco, blind and gold tooling on cover and spine, a little rubbed but still a nice copy. "Sir Henry Chauncy, (1632–1719), lawyer and antiquary. Although he did not give up the legal profession at this time, Chauncy's landed inheritance gave him the opportunity and financial resources to compile his monumental work, The Historical Antiquities of Hertfordshire, finally published as a single large volume in 1700 in a print run of 500 copies and dedicated to its principal sponsor, the third earl of Bridgewater. Beginning with an account of the county's soil and rivers and its 'inhabitants and government', it then proceeds on a hundred by hundred basis, describing the origins of towns and villages, the descent of their manors, depicts various family coats of arms, and goes on to list the vicars, rectors, and monuments of the county's parish churches. Chauncy's work can be regarded as the first true history of the county, its text illustrated by forty-six engravings, the great majority of them bird's-eye perspective drawings of the seats of the noblemen and gentlemen who had subscribed to the publication."—(ODNB).

        Constituciones Synodales Antiguas, y Modernas del Obispado de Calahorra, y la Calzada. Reconocidas, reformadas, y aumentadas novissimamente por el Ilustrissimo Sor., Obispo deste Obispado, del Consejo de Su Magestad, etc. en el Synodo Diocesano, que celebro en la Ciudad de Logroño, en el año de mil y seiscientos y noventa y ocho.

      1700. . 1700 - Impreso por Antonio González de Reyes. Madrid. . 1 Vol. . Grabado+portada+5 H.+25 fol.+790 pp.+42 H. Folio Menor. Plena Piel de época. Local España (La Rioja), Religión / Teología / Ética / Monasterios /Ordenes Religiosas (General), Siglo XVII , Vasco-Navarro (Navarra) . Interesante compendio de normas de derecho canónico particular de la diócesis de Calahorra. A pesar de que los siglos XVI y XVII viven un importante impulso de la recopilación normativa, especialmente en el ámbito religioso, esta compilación, producto del Sínodo celebrado en Logroño en 1698, no ha gozado de la relevancia histórica que sin duda merece, probablemente por estar realizada durante el reinado de Carlos II que representa como ninguno la decadencia del imperio español. La anterior recopilación sinodal, debida al obispo Pedro Manso en 1602, tuvo una gran importancia para la difusión de la lengua y la cultura vascongada, ya que disponía por primera vez la obligación de traducir los sermones y obras religiosas a las diversas modalidades de euskera que por entonces se hablaban en la región controlada por la diócesis de Calahorra, garantizando así la supervivencia futura de la lengua vasca y su ascenso a medio de transmisión cultural. Esta nueva colección, extremadamente rigurosa en lo jurídico, recopila todos los compendios anteriores recogidos en el de Manso e incluye nuevas disposiciones. Entre ellas cabe destacar la prohibición de las danzas tradicionales vascas en los lugares de culto y la de representar entremeses en medio de las comedias sacras. Asimismo, uno de los grandes empeños de Lepe en su mandato como obispo fue el de resolver el problema del clero vasco, mayoritariamente inculto, indigno e incluso inmoral desde el punto de vista del Concilio de Trento, que es la visible base ideológica de las reformas del obispo Lepe. El ejemplar presenta un sobrebio grabado xilográfico en la anteportada, portada impresa en tipografía a dos tintas con orla xilográfica, así como numerosas capitulares, viñetas, orlas y cul-de-lampe adornando todo el texto.

        Circuli Austriaci Pars Septentrionalis in Qu Archiducatus Austriae et Ducatus Styriae accuratissime divisi ostenduntur,

      Amsterdam, Covens & Mortier, 1700 - ca 1680 - 1725 57x49 cm, kolorierter Kupferstich, Blatt etwas vergilbt, leicht altersfleckig, guter Zustand Jean (Johannes) Covens und Corneille (Cornelius) Mortier waren Schwager, die das 1685 von Pierre Mortier in Amsterdam begründete Verlagshaus weiterführten und es Covens & Mortier nannten. Als Pierre Mortier 1711 verstarb, führte seine Witwe die Geschäfte weiter, bis auch sie 1719 verstarb. Corneille Mortier erbte als Sohn das Unternehmen. 1721 begründete er mit Jean Covens eine Partnerschaft, nachdem dieser seine Schwester, Agatha Mortier, geheiratet hatte. Im gleichen Jahr erwarben Covens & Mortier das niederländische Verlagshaus de Wit. Covens & Mortier trugen viel zum Erfolg der französischen Verleger und der Verlagerung der Kartenherstellung Anfang des 18. Jahrhunderts von den Niederlanden nach Frankreich bei. Covens & Mortier verlegten Werke von Nicolas Sanson (1600-1667), Alexis-Hubert Jaillot (1632-1712) und Guillaume de l'Isle (1675-1726), aber auch späten niederländischen Meisterkartographen, wie Frederik De Wit und Hugo Allard (1620-1684), und natürlich Pierre Mortier selbst. (Quelle: Wikipedia) 57x49 cm, colored copperplate, a little yellowed and a little stained acoording to age, good condition Covens and Mortier was an Amsterdam firm formed in 1721 by Johannes Covens in partnership with the heirs of Pierre Mortier. Mortier had established a publishing house in Amsterdam and published reissued maps by some French and Dutch mapmakers of the late 17th and early 18th centuries (like Guillaume de L’Isle, Carel Allard and Jan Jansson). After Mortier’s death in 1711, the family continued the business. Covens and Mortier joined and issued several atlases, world and continent maps. Sprache: de

By Capt. Samuel Sturmy. Revised, Corrected and Enlarged, by John Colson, Teacher of the Mathematicks in London. The Fourth Edition, with useful Additions. London, Printed for Richard Mount, at the Postern on Tower-Hill, MDCC. The book is too scarce for a definitive proper collation to be found.However, the copy presented here contains more plates than any of the other few copies that we have been able to locate. Per Christie's, Samuel Sturmey stated that he apprenticed to a Bristol sailmaker and thereafter commanded ships sailing out of Bristol, primarily to Virginia and to the West Indies. His experiences formed the core of the work herein described, a work produced by him to provide his three brothers, his sons, and other young seamen with all of the information they would need -- even if their own mathematical abilities were restricted to ordinary arithmetic. Sturmy wrote in a lively fashion and in the sections pertaining to seamanship the usual commands and responses were set forth as a dialogue between the ship's captain and the crew, parts of which were used verbatim by Jonathan Swift in "Gulliver's Travels". Fuller, in "Worthies of England", iii. 343, edit. 1840 noted that the Sturmy family (Samuel Sturmy's ancestors) were Lords of Wolf Hall near Burbage, co. Wiltshire where they were possessed of a very extensive property and were lords of the noble forest of Savernake -- presently Britain's only privately-owned ancient forest. Henry VIII stayed at Wolf Hall (at a house no longer standing) and was there introduced to his third wife Jane Seymour whose family seat was located nearby. Wolf Hall also gave its name to the famed Hilary Mantel novel and to the BBC drama Series of the same name.Captain Sturmy is buried in the Church at Easton-in-Gordano, a place old enough to be mentioned in the Doomsday book, and, within the Church, a tablet records the life of Captain Sturmy who, between 1667 and 1669 wrote his invaluable book. Such was his importance that, for a period of time, an annual sermon was preached at the Church on his birthday, and Sturmy's book was of such importance to sailors that even ships of pirates and buccaneers carried the book with them on their voyages. Captain William Dampier, one of the most important British explorers of the period between Sir Walter Raleigh and James Cook, the first Englishman to explore parts of Australia, and the first man to circumnavigate the Earth three times, carried the third edition (1684) on his voyages and described it as "...an instructive and entertaining work, containing a number of receipts and "wrinkles in navigation". Sturmey was something of a poet. His portrait is that of a handsome, melancholy gentleman. It is marked with a curious mystical symbol."It is from Sturmy's book that Dampier remembered the recipe ("receipt") for gunpowder.Sturmy's work also contains one what may be one of the earliest complete explanations of the construction of a polar gnomonic chart, presenting a detailed example of a great circle route from the Lizard to the Bermudas. [The Oxford Reference states: "The gnomonic chart became popular with the publication by Hugh Godfray in 1858 of two polar gnomonic charts covering the greater part of the world, one for the northern and the other for the southern hemisphere. Although it was generally believed that Godfray was the original inventor of this method of great circle sailing, it is interesting to note that a complete explanation of the construction of a polar gnomonic chart, with a detailed example of a great circle route from the Lizard to the Bermudas, appeared in Samuel Sturmey's Mariners' Mirror, of 1669."] Thus, we have here what we believe to be a superior copy of an early sailing and navigation classic of which few copies in any edition have come to auction over the last several decades and which constitutes a critical component of any any nautical library. A Rare and Superior copy of a Rare and highly notable book.

        Observations sur la manière de tailler dans les deux sexes pour l'extraction de la pierre, pratiquée par Frère Jacques. Nouveau système de la CIRCULATION DU SANG par le trou ovale dans le foetus humain, avec les réponses aux objections qui ont été faites contre cette hypothèse.

      Paris, J. Boudot, 1700 - Paris, J. Boudot, 1700 ; 1 vol. in-12 (157 x 87 mm), (28), 187, (17) pp., 6 planches h.t. et 118 pp. (ch. par err. 90), (2) pp., pleine basane du temps, plats ayant été revêtu de papier marbré, dos à nerfs orné, reliure frottée, un manque à la coiffe supérieure, manque la première page de garde blanche, intérieur en très bon état, ex-libris armorié gravé sur bois de Henr. Petit (Cf. Henry-André, p. 104; Olivier, p. 185), bon exemplaire. Première et seule édition ancienne, très rare. Cet ouvrage est en deux parties, à pagination séparée, portant sur deux sujets différents. Jean Mery (1645-1722), né à Vatan (Indre), fils d'un maître en chirurgie, fut admis dès l'âge de dix ans à l'Hôtel-Dieu de Paris pour étudier l'anatomie et la chirurgie. Il sera nommé chirurgien de la reine, puis chirurgien des Invalides et enfin premier chirurgien de l'Hôtel-Dieu. Il enseigna l'anatomie et la chirurgie. Il eut une très grande renommée. Il avait déjà publié un mémoire novateur sur l'anatomie de l'oreille et décrit, avant Cowper, les glandes bulbo-uréthrales. Il mit au point un procédé d'injection d'air et d'eau : "Mery's injections of air and water represent a very definite advance towards an understanding of the mechanism of respiration" (CJ Singer, Studies in the history and method of science, p. 317). La partie la plus importante de cet ouvrage, reliée en tête, concerne la circulation du sang chez le foetus (187 pp., 7 planches). Mery s'oppose fermement aux idées soutenues par Duverney sur la circulation du sang chez le foetus. Il partage l'opinion de William Harvey, selon laquelle le sang qui passe par le canal artériel va de l'artère pulmonaire à l'aorte, échappant ainsi au poumon [Harvey (" Harvée ") est d'ailleurs cité 21 fois par Méry]. Par contre, Mery estime à tort que le sang qui passe par le trou ovale va de l'oreillette gauche vers l'oreillette droite, et non l'inverse. Les six planches gravées sur cuivre représentent en huit figures le coeur et la circulation sanguine du foetus humain. Malgré les erreurs qu'il renferme, cet ouvrage est important dans l'histoire de la circulation car il suscita des débats passionnés pendant plusieurs décennies au sein de l'Académie des Sciences ; il est intéressant de connaître les arguments et la rhétorique de Mery, qui ont permis de rallier à sa cause la majorité des anatomistes français de l'époque (dont Littré, Dodard, etc .) face à Duverney et son élève Tauvry. Ce texte fit l'objet d'une longue analyse de Franklin (Jean Mery and his ideas on foetal blood flow, Annals of science, 1945, 5, 203-228) : "Méry's physiological views were derived partly from the literature, partly from his own experimental and clinical work, partly from his anatomical findings, and partly from the results of injection of air or of fluids into the vessels of soft anatomical specimens. . . The outstanding differences between Méry's view and the traditional ones were his beliefs that the so-called valve of the foramen ovale was not a valve at all but the caudal part of the inter-atrial septum, that the venous return from the left lung of the foetus was the only blood which passed through the foramen ovale and that it did so from left to right, and that there was a considerable pulmonary blood flow in utero. . .". Les idées de Méry avaient aussi été rapportées par Flourens (Histoire de la découverte de la circulation du sang, pp. 74-75). Dans l'autre partie de l¿ouvrage, Méry rapporte plusieurs observations de Frère Jacques avec les "accidents fâcheux" qui ont accompagné ou suivi l'opération de la taille ; il expose ensuite les résultats d'autopsies qu'il réalisa sur certains de ces patients et la méthode qu'il préconise pour éviter ces complications. © S.A.S.
