Previous owner?s signature in pencil on front endpaper. One worm trail to front endpapers, but no further. Pages clean. Fraktur. Phillip Jacob Spener (1635-1705) was a German Lutheran theologian whose moral reforms gave birth to Pietism. Therefore, he is regarded as the father of Pietism. This work is a scarce collection of his sermons, in four volumes bound together, primarily on matters scriptural. Presumably, he composed them while he was leader of the Lutheran Church in Frankfurt am Main and began his ?collegia pietatis,? the small group ?bible studies? of the laity. According to Worldcat records, as of 2016, this work is scarce in libraries worldwide and particularly North America. See OCLC 832548591. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Withal, a solid VG copy.. iv, 23, [1 (blank)] pp. 4to: A^2 B - D^4. 8-1/8" x 6-1/8" "John Tutchin was a radical Whig controversialist and political journalist, who's many controversial pamplets and works landed in in court many times. 'Tutchin was convinced, throughout his life, that corruption was rampant and that people were trying to defraud the government or serve an anti-English master'...'He and Defoe quarreled in their public writings, with Defoe representing a more Puritan stripe of the whig party and Tutchin the more democratic and Cromwellian side'...'In May 1704, Tutchin fled to France briefly to escape being seized.'...'After he returned to England, Tutchin continued to rail at Jacobites and French agents everywhere. He accused the Navy of secretly supplying food for the French Navy. This got him arrested again. John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough wrote in a letter to Harley, of the matter, 'If I can't have justice done me, I must find some friend that will break his and the printer's bones.' Whether he did so or not, something terrible did happen to Tutchin in prison. He was beaten severely and died of his injuries in custody on 23 September 1707." Rare political pamphlet on the subject; RBH shows last to the market in a 1963 Frances Edwards catalogue.

        Breve descrizzione corografica del Peloponneso o' Morea. Venice, Domenico Lovisa, 1700.

      1700. 4to. (8), 136 p. Contemp. limp vellum. First edition; reprinted in 1704. "Pacifico spent many years studying the topography of Greece in the wake of the Venetian successes against the Turks from 1684 to 1688. His book of 1686, ['Descrittione delle Provincie che formano la Penisola della Morea'], was followed by 'Notizia del Ducato del Atene' (1687) after the Venetian conquest of the city in that year, any by 'Historiografia dell' Isola e Città di Scio' (1694). His undated work on Evvoia, 'Descrizzione del Regno e Isola di Negroponte', was published at Treviso, and he is also credited with the authorship of 'Esatta Notitia del Peloponneso', published by Albrizzi in 1687" (Blackmer). - The Morean War (also known as the Sixth Ottoman-Venetian War), fought between 1684 and 1699, was part of the wider conflict known as the "Great Turkish War", between the Republic of Venice and the Ottoman Empire. The major campaign was the Venetian conquest of the Peloponnese peninsula. On the Venetian side, the war was fought to avenge the loss of Crete in 1669, while the Ottomans were entangled in their northern frontier against the Habsburgs and were unable to concentrate their forces against the Republic. The Morean War remains the only Ottoman-Venetian conflict from which Venice emerged victorious. Venice's expansionist revival would be short-lived however, as their gains were reversed by the Ottomans in 1715. - Evenly browned throughout due to paper; insignificant waterstain near end. A good copy. Weber II, 754. ICCU \LIAE\015519. Cf. Blackmer 1233 (2nd ed. only).

        MAPPE-MONDE DRÉSSE SUR LES OBSERVATIONS DE MRS. DE L'ACADEMIE ROYAL DES SCIENCES ET QUELQUES AUTRES SUR LES MEMOIRES LES PUS RECENS

      Paris: Chez l'Auteur Rue des Canettes pres de St. Sulpice, 1700. Copper-engraved map, handcolored in outline. Sheet size: 17 1/8 x 26 1/8 inches. Good condition, cut to just within the plate mark, with expert repairs to margins and central fold. The rare first state of the celebrated world map by De l'Isle, "one of the foremost cartographer's of the age" (Shirley). This highly important map proved to be one of the most influential world maps of its time, and is present here in the rare first state. De l'Isle was a much esteemed figure who, after being tutored by the great Jean-Dominique Cassini, became the geographer to the French Academy of Sciences in 1702, and then Premier Géographe to Louis XV in 1718. Rodney Shirley notes that "De L'Isle's work is distinguished by its scientific basis, the minute care taken in all departments, constant revision, and personal integrity." In this map of the world De l'Isle was among the first cartographers to re-establish California's true form as a peninsula, to give more or less accurate configurations of all five Great Lakes, and to show the full extent of the Mississippi. He was also one of the first to correct the exaggerative attenuated form of the Mediterranean Sea. In fusing New Guinea and Australia, he followed William Dampier's presumably personal survey, but resisted the temptation to join Tasmania and New Zealand to Australia, an error soon to be popular. Curiously, the tip of South America is shown to curve sharply into the Pacific, a detail conspicuously amended in subsequent states of the map. The map also features the tracks of important circumnavigators including Magellan, Mendaña, Dampier, Van Noort, Le Maire and Schouten, and the antipodean tracks of Abel Tasman.

        Atlas contractus sive mapparum geographicarum Sansoniarum auctarum et correctarum nova congeries

      Amsterdam: Petrus Schenck, ca. 1700. First Edition. Very good antiquarian condition. Folio (530 x 320 mm). Bound in contemporary marbled boards (sympathetically repaired), corners worn and spine partially defective. COMPLETE with engraved title-page and 26 double-page maps, all colored by a contemporary hand, plus the engraved Index leaf ("Atlas Minor") bound in at end. Soiling throughout, some corners of maps worn, unobtrusive stablizing repairs, childish penciled scribble on verso of one map, small burn hole in lower cover extending through Index leaf and final three maps (not objectionable). A well used but honest copy in a contemporary binding, with original hand-colouring throughout, and absolutely complete. Complete, hand-coloured copy of the First Edition of the first Atlas published by Petrus Schenk the Elder (1660-1718/9), the important and prolific Amsterdam map-maker. The maps are by various authorities: Janssonius, Nic. Visscher, Danckerts, De Wit, Van Keulen, Ottens, Hondius, Valk, and Peter Schenk himself. The Sanson maps are the first ones that Schenk published. The fine frontispiece was designed by G. de Lairesse and engraved by Jac. Baptist after a drawing by Phil. Tideman. It depicts Neptune, a woman representing Europe who gestures towards a massive globe, at the base of which two putti engage in cartography, in the foreground are two lions, and in the background the massive figure of Atlas holding the world. Some of the maps have elaborate figures by none other than Romeyn de Hooghe. While the great World map, and the map of North and South America are justly celebrated, and frequently reproduced, of particular interest to us is the map of "Belgii Pars Septentrionalis communi nomine Vulgo Hollandia" which has been overlooked by virtually all authorities: at the top there is an inset map of the East Coast of the United States, in which are specifically named "Niew Neederland," "Nova Anglia," "Lang Eylant," "Niew Iarsey," "Niew Jorck," "Pennsylvania," and "Virginia." There is also a charming view of New York City taken from the Battery. Our copy collates exactly as per Koeman, and - more importantly - with the engraved list of maps bound in at the end, namely: 26 maps + the title page (see below); Koeman describes this edition as the first, noting that Schenk then begin issuing composite volumes under the same title, containing reimpressions of the present maps, plus some "new" maps, plus maps from other atlases. By definition, the number of maps in these later volumes varied from copy to copy. It is noteworthy the restrikes of the present maps are characterized by significantly inferior impressions, as we would expect considering that some of the plates had been in continuous use for 10-15 years. CONTENTS: 1. Titulus (erased ink inscription on back of Europa and chest of Atlas; lion's eyes dotted with pencil; one putti outlined in black ink). 2. Nova orbis Tabula. 3. America (tear along lower plate mark with loss of a portion of blank margin). 4. Africa. 5. Asia. 6. Europa. 7. Moscovia sive Russia. 8. Suesia Scandanavia. Dania et Norvegia. 9. Dania. 10. Germania. 11. Bohemia. 12. Rhenus Superior. Lotharingia, Helvetia, Alsatia, Suevia, Burgandia. 13. Rhenus Inferior (bound before Map 12). 14. Hollandia. 15. Belgium Regium (vignette of soldier in upper left with verizontal and vertical pencil rules). 16. Flandria. 17. Brabantia. 18. Anglia, Scotia & Hibernia. 19. Gallia (this map is dated "1709" although Koeman dates this edition of the Atlas to "ca. 1700"). 20. Hispania & Portugallia. 21. Italia, Corsica & Sardinia (creased along fold in right gutter margin). 22. Sabaudia et Pedemontium. 23. Hungaria, Graesia, Morea, Condia & Archipelagus. 24. Mare Mediterraneum. 2 fols. 25. Polonia, Lithuania, Podolia, Ukrania, Prussia, Livonia, et Churlandia. 26. Turcicum Imperium. 27. Terra Sancta. Engraved list of maps: "Atlas Minor ex optimurum & probatissimorum virorum et praesertim Sansonianis, mappis accuratissimis, a Petro Schenck." That most copies of the first edition of the "Atlas Contractus" have been dismembered by printsellers is attested by the fact that only 9 copies worldwide have been located: Tulane, Syracuse, Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, University Library Groningen, Topografische Dienst Delft, Museum Plantin-Moretus Antwerp, Stadsbibliotheek Maastricht, Tilburg University Library, University of Groningen Library. Rare on the market: the only copy of this first edition that we have been able to trace was sold nearly 60 years ago (Sotheby's London, 9 April 1956, lot 295). Provenance: Carlo Bourbon del Monte, 4th Prince of San Faustino (1868-1917) -- by descent to his son, Ranieri Bourbon del Monte, 5th Prince of San Faustino (1900-1977) -- by descent to his wife, the American Lydia Bodrero (1902-2009) -- by descent to her son, Montino Bourbon del Monte, 6th Prince of San Faustino, Marchese del Monte Santa Maria, of Santa Barbara, CA (b. 1942).

        Abraham of Lontesano, Rabbi of Constantinople.

      Amsterdam 18th century - Oil on canvas, 81.5 x 64 cm. Inscribed "Abraham de Lontesano grand Rabin de Constantinople assistent à l'Université de jerusalem / fait par F. W. Güte" on the reverse. A fine oil painting featuring the renowned Greek Rabbi, Abraham ben Raphael Lonzano. Abraham ben Raphael Lonzano - sometimes spelled Lontesano - born around 1700 in Zakinthos, a Greek island, was a Kabbalist and Hebrew grammarian. He became known through his work on Hebrew grammar titled "Kinyan Avraham". Following anti-semitic attacks on the local population, Lonzano left the country and started travelling around Europe. He studied at the yeshivah "Ez Hayyim" in Amsterdam, where he likely met the artist. Eventually settling down in Prague, he criticized local yeshivah scholars for studying the Torah without knowledge of the Hebrew language. Lonzano wrote "Hamishah Kinyanim", a commentary to the Sefer Yezirah, the "Book of Formation / Creation". At the end of his life he converted to Christianity in the Prussian town of Idstein and adopted the name Willhelm Heinrich Neumann.

        Mémoire sur la Noblesse du Royaume de France.

      1700 ca Manuscrit in-4 de (2)-308 pp., vélin bruni, dos orné à nerfs, pièce de titre en maroquin rouge (reliure de l'époque). Mémoire manuscrit, anonyme et inédit rédigé à la fin du règne de Louis XIV tandis que depuis 1666 était menée dans tout le Royaume la grande enquête sur la noblesse de France mieux connue sous les termes de « recherche des usurpateurs du titre de noblesse » qui s'achèvera sous la Régence. (Incipit :) Il est certain que dans tous les Royaumes du Monde Républiques, ou pays policés et dans tous les tems, il y a eu une distinction réelle entre les hommes conçue de telle sorte par les uns et les autres qu'ils ont cru que le sang était le principe de cette distinction, il faut pourtant excepter de ce nombre le Royaume de la Chine où il y a quelques différents degrés d'étude et de science qui procurent cette distinction, lauelle ne passe point aux familles si ce n'est dans des cas fort particuliers. Rédigé à la première personne, l'auteur esquisse un nobiliaire de France (les grandes maisons sont répertoriées) et avance des réflexions historiques sur la filiation, les charges, l'identité nobiliaire au début du XVIIIe siècle. La référence au Père Calmet permet de circonscrire sa composition à la période 1694-1726, dates extrêmes des trois premières éditions de l'Histoire généalogique et chronologique de la maison Royale de France, des Pairs (p. 82) : Enfin de nos jours l'opinion est devenue telle que les maisons les plus illustres perdraient la meilleure partie de leur réputation si on ne les trouvait inscrites aux catalogues du Père Anselme qui a pris la liberté d'ériger en charges de la couronne tout autant d'emplois qu'il a pu afin de contenter tout le monde ; il ne voudrait cependant pas assurer que ce soit le meilleur moyen de conserver la véritable idée que l'on doit avoir de la noblesse. Manuscrit d'une belle écriture provenant de la bibliothèque du Maréchal Jourdan (1762-1833) avec son ex-libris armorié. Vainqueur à Fleurus en1794, nommé Maréchal de France en 1804, il fut éllevé au grade de Grand Aigle de la Légion d'honneur peu de temps après. Attaché au Roi Joseph, Jourdan devint gouverneur de Naples en 1806 avant de suivre le nouveau roi en Espagne.

      [Paris] 1700 - Beautifully handcoloured Original Engraving (copper engraving). [Paris], c.1700. 59 cm wide x 49 cm high. Excellent condition of this beautiful original 18th century map. Gerard Valck ou Gerardus Valk, né à Amsterdam le 30 septembre 16521- et y décédé le 21 octobre 17262 était un marchand d'images et de plaques d'imprimerie du Dam. Il se spécialisa en cartographie et la fabrication de mappemondes. Ses globes terrestres et célestes amenaient une nouveauté au sens qu'il respectait les dernières préceptes des scientifiques, à savoir moins de textes et moins d'images, alors que ses concurrents directs conservaient le projet de la firme Blaeu, qui s'était basé sur Tycho Brahe. Ainsi après quelques années, la maison Valck/Schenk obtint le monopole absolu en matière de fabrication et vente de globes. Les globes et mappemondes de Valck se vendirent durant tout le XVIIIe siècle. (Wikipedia). Sprache: French Excellent condition of this beautiful original 18th century map.
