        Historia Ptolemaeorum Aegypti Regum, Ad fidem NUMISMATUM accommodata.

      Amsterdam, Gallet, Huguetanorum, 1701. Folio. Contemporary full calf with 6 raised bands to richly gilt spine. Hinges and capitals a bit worn, but still tight. Corners bumped. Apart from a few browned leaves, a fine and clean copy. Title-page printed in red and black and with a large engraved allegorical vignette. Large allegorical vignette to dedication. 102 lovely engravings of coins in the text. (20), 218 pp. Engraved book-plate to inside of front board: "Sir Francis L.H. Goodricke Bart." (19th cent.) and to inside of back board: Andrew M. Sherling" as well as gift-inscription (from Edmund Caldwell, to St. Michaelis Convent) to front free end-paper: "Monasteris St. Michaelis/ D.D./ Don. Edmundus Caldwell O.S.B./ a.d. 1871". Early inscription to title-page.. Scarce first edition of this standard work, one of the most important histories of the Egyptian Kingdom of the Ptolemies (323 B.C. to 30 B.C.), considered one of the most influential works on this complicated and perplexed part of ancient history. The work quickly became the main reference-work on the subject. It is especially noteworthy in its inclusion of Ptolemaeic coinage and is one of the first modern histories of the Ptolemies to not merely treat the subject chronologically; it is the first to explain this period by help of coins. The Ptolemaic Kingdom was a Hellenistic kingdom in Egypt. It was ruled by the Ptolemaic dynasty that Ptolemy I Soter founded after the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BC-which ended with the death of Cleopatra VII and the Roman conquest in 30 BC. The Ptolemies were the Greek Rulers in Egypt after the death of Alexander the Great.The vast empire that Alexander the Great had conquered, was too big for one successor. One general was entrusted with Macedonia, another Thrace, and a third Syria. Ptolemy I Soter, one of Alexander's favorite generals, was made governor of Egypt. Alexandria, the capital city, quickly became a center of Greek culture and trade. For more than 350 years the Ptolemies ruled Egypt. Ptolemy's son Ptolemy Philadelpus ruled after Alexander's general. It was Ptolemy Phladelphus who made the library at Alexandria the best in the world. With the death of Cleopatra, probably the most famous of the Ptolemies, the dynasty of the Ptolemies came to an end and Egypt became part of the Roman Empire

See Macdonald 108. Overall in VERY GOOD condition. WENCESLAUS HOLLAR (known as Wenzel Hollar in Germany), was a Bohemian etcher, who lived in England for much of his life. He was born in Prague, and died in London, being buried at St Margaret's Church, Westminster. Hollar produced a variety of works; his plates number nearly 3000, and include views, portraits, ships, religious subjects, heraldic subjects, landscapes, and still life in many different forms. His architectural drawings, such as those of Antwerp and Strassburg cathedrals, and his views of towns, are to scale, but are intended as pictures as well. He reproduced decorative works of other artists, as in the famous chalice after Mantegna's drawing. Almost complete collections of Hollar's work are kept in the British Museum, the print room at Windsor Castle and the National Gallery in Prague. Hollar's oeuvre was first catalogued in 1745 by George Vertue. The prints were subsequently catalogued in 1853 by Gustav Parthey and in 1982 by Richard Pennington. A new complete illustrated catalogue has been published in the New Hollstein German series.. Third Edition. Full Calf Leather. Very Good. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Hardcover.

      London: Printed for Charles Harper ... , 1701.. [16],277,[3]pp. Octavo. Contemporary red goat skin, raised bands, gilt label, compartments decorated in gilt, covers with elaborately ornamented panels with corner devices and floral roll within the inner panel, within triple rule border, gilt inner dentelles, a.e.g., likely by Robert Steel. Upper joint slightly tender, very shallow loss at crown of spine, upper cover shows some irregular dark discolorations, binder's blanks darkened, textblock very bright, crisp and fresh. First edition. The binding was attributed by the former owner to Robert Steel, who apprenticed to Samuel Mearne, and indeed, the floral roll matches that used on other bindings attributed to him (see Maggs 1212:70, for example, on a binding made for Queen Anne). Fleetwood, at the time of this publication, was Fellow of Eton-College and Chaplain in Ordinary to William III. The text was assembled to be delivered as the Boyle Lecture, which Fleetwood had been unable to deliver due to illness. In 1707, he published the more widely known work of economic analysis, CHRONICON PRECIOSUM .... To all appearances, this would qualify as a large, fine paper copy (200 x 120 mm) were it not for the fact that the dimensions seem common to decent copies of the entire edition. ESTC T83611.

      1701. Very Good. DRYDEN, John. THE COMEDIES, TRAGEDIES, AND OPERAS WRITTEN BY JOHN DRYDEN, ESQ; Now first collected together, and Corrected from the Originals. In Two Volumes. London: Printed for Jacob Tonson, at Gray's-Inn-Gate in Gray's-Inn-Lane; Thomas Bennet, at the Half-Moon; and Richard Wellington, at the Lute in St. Paul's Church-Yard, 1701. The first folio edition of Dryden's plays, as well as the first to attempt a complete collection with accurate texts. Earlier collected editions of Dryden's plays were just that, collections of quarto editions bound together with a general title- page, the contents of which vary according to what editions were available when the sets were made up. Two folio volumes, 34 x 21 cm: [ ]2, A-2S4, 2X- 4I4,4K1; [ ]2, B-2Q4, R2, 2M-4B4. Pp. [6], 326, 337-618 (i.e. 608); [4], 308, 261-558 (i.e. 604). Titles pages printed in red and black. Text is complete despite the breaks in signatures and many errors in pagination, which are a result of the book having been given out to different printers according to Macdonald. Text is mostly quite clean but for some occasional light foxing and, in Volume 2, some browned signatures, with a few minor instances of nicked corners or closed tears in margins as well. Folding frontispiece portrait Dryden in Volume 1. 38 x 29 cm. Engraved by Edelinck after after Godfrey Kneller, it is trimmed close to the image on the left and bottom margins, and folded to fit in the volume. There is a 17.8 cm closed tear that begins at the bottom edge of the stub that anchors the plate in the volume and enters the plate, but with an old and very good repair that does not call attention to it. Bound in eighteenth- century calf boards, rebacked, with parts of the original spines laid-down and with modern, black morocco, gilt-lettered labels. Boards show a bit of wear and some surface abrading. Armorial bookplate of "William Pole of Bally-Finn Esqr" on front pastedown of each volume. (Macdonald 107 a i).

        A new map of the Terraqueous Globe According to the Latest DiscoveriesÖ

      Oxford,: Edward Wells, 1701.. Handcoloured copper engraving, 425 x 530 mm. (sheet size), some mild browning yet very good. A striking early eighteenth-century English double-hemisphere map with a splendid ornamental border featuring New World Indian archers, Ptolemaic geographers, classical figures and a Celtic warrior enjoying the verdant parklands outside Oxford, with the University visible in the distance. The handcolouring of both the map and ornaments, including the ornamental figures and celestial details, is bright and fresh.The map is from Edward Wells' popular atlas A Treatise of Antient and Present Geography (1700-1). This is a particularly interesting English-published map for its date as the Australian coast is evidently based on the famous seventeenth-century Thevenot map first published in 1663, with the coastline based primarily on the voyages of Tasman, as well as the other Dutch expeditions to the northwest; as with the Thevenot map New Guinea is attached to Cape York. Hence the Wells map is an important forerunner to the later English map of the region published in John Harris' Navigantium atque Itinerantium Bibliotheca (1744). It is interesting to note that despite its date, no explicit mention is made of Dampier.Shirley comments that Wells' atlas was very popular, running into five editions by 1738. It was resurrected in the nineteenth-century with a profusion of editions published up until 1852. Wells was an English divine who taught at Christ Church in Oxford, hence the delightful combination of exotic and parochial elements in the lavish decoration of this arresting map.Shirley 'Maps in the Atlases of the British Library', 1032.

Octavo (pages 194 x 124mm) collating: Title, Table of Dialogues, 328; Title, 3-336; complete. Rebacked with most of the original spine and label retained. First title page extended at the inner margin, p. 2 with a few passages marked in pencil, otherwise a Very Good copy. & & Translated into English and abridged by Joseph Stennett. Two Dialogues: "The Apology of Socrates" and "Phaedo," had previously been translated into English by William Charleton and published in 1675, but the others: "Alcibiades 1 & 2", "Theages," "Euryphron," "Criton," "Laches," "Protagoras" and "The Rivals" are printed in English for the first time. With 22 copies held in institutions worldwide (OCLC), our assumption is that most were placed early on because only one copy shows in the auction records of ABPC and Americana Exchange.& & "Amidst a great diversity, both of subject and treatment, the dialogues are pervaded by two dominant impulses: a love of truth and a passion for human improvement. While nowhere is a definite system laid down, it has been truly said that the germs of all ideas can be found in Plato."

        L'Espagne Dressée sur la Description qui en a eté faite par Rodrigo Mendez Sylva et sur plusiers Relations et Cartes Manuscites ou imprimées de ce Royaume Rectifiées par les Observations de M[onsieu]rs de l'Academie des Sciences & autres Astronomes

      Paris: Chez l'Auteur Sur le Quai de l'Horloge, 1701. Engraved Simmoneau with period outline colour. Minor soiling and discolouration in top margin and top of centerfold of the map. Skilfully repaired tears at the top of the centerfold, otherwise good condition. 18 1/2 x 23 1/4 inches. 20 1/2 x 26 3/4 inches. This handsome, topographical map of Spain and Portugal is from Atlas de Géographie, De l'Isle's great atlas. Guillaume de l'Isle (1675-1726) was son of a cartographer and a pupil of Jean Dominique Cassini, who among other important contributions, aligned the study of astronomy to the study of geography. Under Cassini's direction, observations were made from locations all over the world that enabled longitudinal calculations to be made with much greater accuracy. De l'Isle carried on this exacting work with remarkable dedication and integrity, constantly revising and improving his maps. While precision was his primary goal, his maps are invariably elegant and attractive. He was probably the most influential mapmaker of the 18th century. Koeman, C & M 7, #66

        Masehafa mazemurate zaDawite, hoc est psalterium Davidis Aethiopice et Latine, cum duobus impressis & tribus MSStis codicibus diligenter collatum & emendatum […]

      Francurti ad Moenum: Johannem David. Zunner, 1701. First edition. Hardcover. 4t0. pp. [8], 427, [1]. Ethiopic text and Latin translation on opposite pages. Title page is printed in red and black with the first three lines in Ethiopic. Bound in full period calf with spine gilt in six compartments – rubbed; a small spot on the front hinge is professionally strengthened. The title page contains scattered foxing and is age-toned / tanned around the edges. The interior pages are generally clean and crisp with only minor age toning and spots of foxing. The bottom corner tip of the margin on p. 273-74 is clipped / torn. Some discoloration is present on pp. 228-229 where a small slip of early decorative paper was used as a book mark. The inside front and rear covers contain an institutional stamp; a “released” stamp and an early institutional book plate are also located on the inside front cover. No other library or institutional stamps are present. The front free fly leaf displays a couple of inscriptions in early hands (one with date 1828). Hiob Ludolf (1624-1704) was an important German orientalist who is considered the founder of modern western Ethiopian studies. This is the first complete edition of Ludolf’s Ethiopic Psalter with Latin translation. (An earlier edition of Psalms I-V was published in Frankfurt (1699) as a specimen). Ludolf, with the assistance of Johann Heinrich Michaels, used the 1513 and 1518 editions of the Ethiopic Psalter as well as three manuscripts in preparing his new edition (See Darlow). Other Biblical hymns and prayers including the Song of Solomon (in Ethiopic only) are also included. The last section of the book (pp.345-427) is devoted to extensive scholarly notes – variae lectiones et notae – on the individual Psalms. [Darlow & Moule 3572; Brunet IV, 921; Graesse V, p. 469].

        Analysin magni problematis isoperimetrici in actis erud. Lips. m. Maj. 1697 pag. 214 propositi ... sub praesidio Jacobi Bernoulli... publice defendendam suscipit Joh. Jacobus Episcopius

      Basel: Typis Joh. Conradi à Mechel, 1701. Very rare first separate edition of Bernoulli&#146;s solution of the isoperimetric problem, which represents the beginnings of the calculus of variations, later to be developed extensively by Euler and Lagrange.<br/><br/>& In 1696 Johann Bernoulli had posed as a challenge to the mathematicians of Europe the problem of finding the curve of quickest descent, the so-called brachistochrone. Solutions were given by L&#146;Hospital, Leibniz, Newton, and by Johann&#146;s brother Jakob in the May 1697 issue of Acta Eruditorum, At the end of this memoir Jakob raised the isoperimetric problem as a challenge to his readers, but especially to Johann (he even offered Johann a prize of 50 silver ecus for a satisfactory solution within three months). The isoperimetric problem asks for the curve of a given length joining two fixed points in the plane for which a certain integral is a maximum (a special case would be to maximize the area contained between the curve and the straight line joining the two points). &#147;Johann underestimated the complexity of this problem by failing to perceive its variational character; and he furnished an incomplete solution... and thereby brought upon himself the merciless criticism of his brother. This was the beginning of alienation and open discord between the brothers &#150; and also the birth of the calculus of variations. A comparison of Jakob&#146;s solution [in the offered work] with Johann&#146;s analysis of the problem... clearly shows Johann&#146;s to be inferior. Nevertheless, Jakob was not able to enjoy his triumph, since &#150; for reasons that remain mysterious &#150; the sealed envelope containing Johann&#146;s solution was not opened by the [Paris] Academy until 17 April 1706, the year following Jakob&#146;s death&#148; (DSB, under Johann Bernoulli). After solving the isoperimetric problem, &#147;Jakob was able to furnish the proof [also contained in the offered work], which Johann and Leibniz had been seeking in vain, that the inexpansible and homogeneous catenary is the curve of deepest center of gravity between the points of suspension&#148; (ibid., under Jakob Bernoulli).<br/><br/>& This separate edition was published in March 1701, two months before its appearance in the May 1701 issue of Acta Eruditorum. It was dedicated to L&#146;Hospital, Leibniz, Newton and Fatio de Duillier. <br/><br/>& OCLC lists 6 copies worldwide, none in America.& 4to: 179 x 150 mm. Pp. 18,(2).

Frontespizi in rosso e nero con vignetta incisa. Antiche firme di appartenenza. Qualche fioritura, alone e lavoro di tarlo marginale sparso senza perdite di testo. Splendido esemplare nel complesso. Reimpressione lionese curata dall'Horst (l'opera iniziò ad apparire dal 1621 nelle varie parti edite a sé) di questa estesissima trattazione di medicina legale in dieci libri scritta ad uso tanto dei medici che dei giureconsulti, autentico caposaldo della letteratura antica in materia. Importanti capitoli sono dedicati alla pazzia, alla tossicologia, alla simulazione delle malattie, alle gravidanze, agli errori professionali, alla prova docimastica intesa ad appurare se il feto avesse respirato o meno prima della morte, alle possessioni demoniache, alla somiglianza dei figli con i genitori, all'impotenza, alla deontologia medica e agli errori professionali. Lo Zacchia (Roma, 1583-ivi, 1658), medico personale di papa Innocenzo X, fu, con l'Ingrassia, il Codronchi, il Fedele, il massimo medico legale italiano a cavallo fra Cinquecento e Seicento. Cfr.

      APPRESO BERNARDINO POMATELLI 1701 Legatura coeva "alla rustica" in cartonnage beige, con tre punti in cuoio alle cerniere. Al piatto inferiore, annotazione storica sulle origini di Comacchio vergata a penna con grafia corsiva settecentesca. Al dorso, titolo e autore abbreviati, nonché numero di collocazione, manoscritti a penna con grafia d'epoca. Antiporta inciso a bulino su matrice di rame con titolo e autore entro ricca cartella composta di nastri, trofei d'armi, trombe e altri oggetti allegorici (fra cui strumenti allusivi alle arti e alle scienze); lungo i lati sinistro e destro, due divinità identificabili (probabilmente) con Minerva e Mercurio. Frontespizio con nota di possesso settecentesca d'un frate francescano, vergata a penna - (26) - 540 pagine numerate. Alcuni capilettera decorati e fregi tipografici impressi a silografia; diverse piccole illustrazioni silografiche incluse nel testo, con antichi rilievi e monete: quasi tutti sono realizzati a silografia ad eccezione di una raffigurazione ovale incisa all'acquaforte (p. 113). Tre tavole fuori testo: una, impressa su due fogli ripiegati, è una pregevole veduta prospettica di Comacchio incisa all'acquaforte da "Antonius Luciani Venetus [...]": la città appare circondata dalle acque e (come recita una didascalia) da "valli [...] che girano cento e trenta miglia"; le altre due tavole incise, impresse su una sola pagina, rappresentano (rispettivamente) le due facce d'una medaglia in onore dell'autore del libro e antichi reperti. Il raro volume (in prima edizione) è una monografia sulla città di Comacchio, nota località litoranea emiliana sita nell'attuale provincia di Ferrara. La trattazione parte dalle antichissime (e leggendarie) origini dell'insediamento che risalirebbero al popolo dei Pelasgi, originari della Tessaglia; la storia prosegue fino all'età moderna, quando la città faceva parte dello stato della Chiesa: l'omaggio ai pontefici è, del resto, evidente fin dalla dedica del volume a papa Clemente I, che campeggia sul frontespizio. Esemplare in ottimo stato conservativo; fori di tarlo ai contropiatti; interno lievemente. Cfr. LOZZI C., "Biblioteca istorica della antica e nuova Italia [...]", Bologna 1963, vol. I, p. 245 num. 1284. Libro
