With some considerations upon what is pretended from the said principles, by the Author of a Treatise, intituled, Biathanatos, and Others London. Printed for Tho. Bennet, 1700. 8vo. [16], 320pp. Contemporary panelled calf, spine richly gilt, contrasting red morocco lettering-piece. Short splits to joints at head of spine, slightly rubbed to extremities, else a fine, unpressed copy. With ink inscription and armorial bookplate of John Rolle, Baron Rolle of Stevenstone (1750-1842), to FEP. A remarkably well preserved copy of the only published work, his popular sermons apart, of English clergyman John Adams (1662-1720), provost of King's College, Cambridge and chaplain to King William and Queen Anne, dedicated to Henry Godolphin, provost of Eton College. An extensive rejection of suicide on the grounds that universal acceptance of it would be 'destructive' to the order of civil society, Adams' Essay also explores the arguments of those who 'maintain this Act, to be Lawful'; namely the 'Stoicks' and most controversially, John Donne, of whose Biantanatos this work is the first serious critical study. The latter, which had not been reissued since the 1640s, was entered into the term catalogues and printed (without imprint, in octavo format, and for last time before the twentieth-century) soon after this work: presumably by an opportunistic bookseller aware of this study, and looking to satiat … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Gardiner, Robert)
1700. Handwritten transcription, bound in contemporary paneled calf, 224 numbered pages, plus transcription of title page, dedication, etc. In an early 18th century hand. Gardiner's book ran 494 pp, and with a catchword at the end of p. 224, we suspect that there was at least one other volume that the assiduous scribe set down. Having no knowledge of the economics of the book trade back then, we still think it would have been easier for the poor law student to buy a copy than spend the dozens of hours transcribing it, but who are we to say? With material on statutes governing witchcraft, as well as much discussion of sodomy and buggery (and the difference between the two) this is a remarkable object of both penmanship and as evidence of extreme labor. Binding is good, some amateurish gluing of spine and joints by previous owner, text good and readable. Good.

Binding has small snag at spine base. Age-toning to eps. Withal, a solid VG copy. Item #0155 "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."

Technique: Altkolorierter Kuferstich /Copper engraving with original colour, 48 x 57 cm (18.9 x 22.0 Inches). Seltene Karte zeigt Västmanland in Schweden. Detailed map with original colour and title in Swedish shows Västmanland, a historical province, in southern Sweden. The map was made by Georg Biurman (1700 1755), a Swedish surveyor and engraver in Stockholm. He became known for his detailed atlases of Stockholm and Sweden. In 1742 Biurman published his famous travel book on Sweden and Finland Vägvisare uti Svea- och Göta Riken samt Stor-Förstendömet Finland. The guide contains two copper engraved maps with detailed positions of roads, inns, cities, and other locations and distances of the main roads between Stockholm and other towns. Although Biurmans maps were extremely important and progressive, they were commercially unsuccessful and he needed to close his printing shop. After his death in 1755 his maps were re-published by the Swedish cadastral office. The map was published separetely by Kongliga Lantmäteri Contoiret (Royal Institute of Surveyors). The institute started publishing separately issued maps of Sweden in 1739 with a goal to map the country in uniform maps. The first map was the grand "Charta öfwer Mälaren" by Jacob Nordencreutz. The maps Upland, Västmanland, Södermanland, Nerike, Skåne and a map of Sweden were issued in the 1740s and early 1750s. The next map - m … [Click Below for Full Description]

He was able to first distinguish himself at the Battle of Saint Gotthard in 1664, where he was under the service of Montecuccoli In 1683 he became an imperial generalissimo . right before the Siege of Vienna.

Yamaga, Soko (original text by)]
Ca. mid Edo period [1700-1800]. A luxurious manuscript set of Yamaga Soko`s text on the teachings of bushido (the samurai code of chivalry_), the `Warrior`s Compendium` (1656). Yamaga (1622-1685), the author of the original text, was a Japanese philosopher and strategist who worked under the Tokugawa shogunate. Besides teaching on tactics and strategy, he also wrote on the rules and morals of the samurai, and as a result had a large influence on the Japanese idea of the `spirit of bushido`. Due to his antipathy towards Neo-Confucianism Yamaga was exiled to the Ako domain, where he taught Oishi Yoshio, chamberlain of the domain and famous for inciting the `revenge of the Forty-Seven Ronin`. This particular set of books has been bound in a tanyoso style with tori-no-ko paper and gold-leaf pastedowns, hinting that the production of the set would have been costly. The books also include a total of 86 hand-painted colour illustrations of machines of war, buildings, watercourses, diagrams related to strategy, and so on, two of which have movable sections (one loose). A beautiful set on traditional Japanese warfare, lavishly produced by a skilled but unknown hand-copier. Original flower-patterned cloth wrappers, with a few small wormholes continuing through to lower wrappers. Title slips and indexes hand-painted on cloth and tipped-in to upper wrappers. Upper wrapper of volume three slightly stained. Light occasional white mould marks to wrappers and endpapers. Some occasional wormholing, stains, discolouration, and small marks to text, but overall near fine. Comes in non-original … [Click Below for Full Description]

BIANCO, Noe (d. 1568).
Domenico Marescandoli,, Lucca, 1700. 192 pp., title with woodcut vignette, numerous woodcut illustrations, rebacked with new endpapers, title gilt on black morocco on upper cover, some soiling and water stains, one or two closed tears. Published circa 1700. Early guidebook for pilgrims visiting the Holy Land, including views of Jerusalem and the Temple of Solomon, as well as lists of relics in Venetian churches. Seems to correspond with the copies held at Oxford and at the British Library, Oxford dating this edition between 1666 and 1699, the British Library copy, circa 1700. Not a lot is known about the author who travelled to Palestine before 1470. This work was considered for a long time as the only available guide to pilgrims to the Holy Land. Noe was inspired greatly by another Italian traveller Niccolo da Poggibonzi (1346 - 1350). The subjects illustrated include views of Italian & Middle Eastern cities, as well as zoological subjects. Some interesting depiction of Jerusalem can be found in this fine, compact book of a Venetian traveller and merchant. The miniature woodcuts illustrating the text show architectural and historical images of Jerusalem - such as Solomon’s Temple and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre - reproduced in simplified graphic forms. A late edition. This work is one of the oldest Italian travel books, first printed in folio in 1500, an anonymous pilgrim’s handbook and guide to the Holy Land. The second edition appeared in small 8 vo. in 1518/1519, and the format of the work has remained unchanged since then, when the woodcuts of Corfu, Crete and Rho … [Click Below for Full Description]
