Johann (Hans) Adam Andreas (I.), Fürst von Liechtenstein (1657-1712).
1701. 1 S. auf Doppelblatt. Folio. Mit Adresse und papiergedecktem Siegel. An Franz Wilhelm Anton Sedlnitzky auf Choltic, den Landeshauptmannschaftsverwalter zu Troppau, über die Bestellung von Julius Heinrich Frh. von Neuhaus und Franz Albert von Nageslawitz [wohl Naglowice, Polen] als Landräte: "[...] Hieran beschihet Unser gnädiger Willen, und bleiben Euch mit Landesfürstl. G[e]d[enk]en wohlgewogen [...]". - Seit 1684 die Geschäfte des Hauses regierend, reorganisierte Fürst Hans Adam I. "die Finanzen, die das Fürstenhaus zu umfangreichen Darlehen an den Kaiser befähigten" (DBE), 1687 berief ihn Kaiser Leopold I. zum Geheimen Rat, und 1693 erhielt Fst. Hans Adam den Orden vom Goldenen Vlies. "Ein Projekt zur Rationalisierung der Kameralverwaltung 1699 scheiterte allerdings am zähen Widerstand der Beamtenschaft. Auch die Gründung der Wiener Girobank, als deren Präsident Hans-Adam I. 1703 bis 1705 fungierte, blieb ohne den erwarteten Erfolg". Mit dem Kauf der Herrschaften Schellenberg und Vaduz 1699 und 1712 erlangte er immediaten Landbesitz sowie Sitz und Stimme im Schwäbischen Kreis. - Stark angestaubt, gebräunt und fleckig sowie mit kleineren Läsuren.

[FÊTES] / ROCABERTI, Joseph
Barcelona: Juan Pablo Marti for Francisco Barnola, 1701. Scarce first edition of this curious funeral fête for Carlos II, generally regarded by posterity as the most stupid and ineffective of the Hapsburg kings of Spain, whose reign (1665-1700) saw the utter dismemberment of the kingdom by Louis XIV.Needless to say, this is not how he is regarded in this account of the funeral proceedings by the Jesuit Rocaberti, which in addition to the standard description of the public ceremonies and the unusually large catafalque (pictured), contains one feature we have never encountered in a funeral publication: some of the orations, laments, hymns and other literary texts are arrayed in calligrams, labyrinths and other graphically striking configurations. For example, the text of a Latin distich Mors rapuit Carolum (Death has snatched Charles) has been scrambled in a diamond-shaped pattern. * Palau 271,658; De Backer Sommervogel VI.1928.1.. 4to. [19.8 x 14.5 cm], (12) ff., 272 pp., (14) ff., 8 folding plates (that of the catafalque oversized & signed Francisco Gazan after Jos. Vives), and 1 printed in red and black. Bound in contemporary flexible vellum, title stenciled on spine in a neat hand. Ownership inscription of Juan Ant. de Figueras on front end leaf; some foxing and small, light waterstain on title and in upper margin of scattered leaves; some repairs to blank upper margin of approximately 15 leaves. Otherwise good. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

WENING, Michael (1645-1718)
Munich: Johann Lucas Straub, 1701-26. Hand-coloured engraving by Wening. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and minor foxing. 10 3/8 x 27 1/2 inches. 12 x 28 7/8 inches. A fascinating and very beautiful print from Wening's rare work on the towns, castles and abbeys of Bavaria: 'Historico-topographica Descriptio' This image is from Wening's only major published work, a large-scale study of Bavarian towns, churches and mansions published in four volumes between 1701 and 1726. Wening, who was born in Nuremberg, moved to Munich in 1666 and was appointed court engraver in 1669. He applied to Maximilian Emanuel, Duke of Bavaria, for a privilege (i.e the right to publish) for his proposed visual record of the four districts of Bavaria. It was granted, and Wening began to make his drawings in November 1696. By January 1697 he had completed 131 drawings. Evidently, he did not always receive the welcome he thought his due from the Bavarian noblemen whose castles he was drawing, but this only seems to have served to inspire him to make his engravings even more spectacular in order to prove his worth as an artist to his doubtful hosts. The present image has a lively immediacy that is very attractive and often lacking in the work of Wening's contemporaries.

Un beau portrait au frontispice de Louis François de Boufflers de Hyacinthe Rigaud gravé par Thomassin. Reliure en plein veau d'époque. Dos à nerfs richement orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. 2 coins dénudés. Une mouillure jaune pâle en début d'ouvrage sur les 3 premiers feuillets, marge basse, au milieu. Dès le lendemain de la campagne de 1667, qui rallia la Flandre à la France, Louis XIV se dépêcha d'envoyer des ordonnances et de créer des Parlements dans les villes conquises, d'autant que c'est à cette date que les Parlements furent dans l'obligation d'enregistrer les Édits royaux. En outre un code de procédure fut envoyé à toutes les juridictions du royaume. Le livre rassemble les ordonnances et édits royaux jusqu'en 1701, composant ainsi l'histoire d'une ville et d'un territoire qui devint français. Tournai retournera à l'Autriche en 1713, puis subira le même sort que les Pays-Bas autrichiens. La ville sera une nouvelle fois conquise par la Révolution et l'Empire, puis rattachée au royaume des Pays-Bas en 1815. En 1830 enfin, elle fut intégrée dans la Belgique indépendante.

Herbert, George
London: Printed for Benj. Tooke, at the Middle-Temple-Gate in Fleetstreet, 1701. 1593-1633 Duodecimo, 6 x 3.6 inches. Fourth edition. A12, a4, B-G12, I8. This clean and charming copy is still bound in its original English calfskin binding. The boards are speckled, the spine is tooled in gilt, even the old label is still intact. The front hinge is starting to crack, but the boards are still firmly attached. We may partly distinguish two poets in Herbert. There is, first, the parish priest of early seventeenth-century England who revered his Church as a chaste mother neither 'painted' nor 'undrest;' who deplored the worm of schism eating away the English rose and (to the disturbance of the Cambridge licenser in 1633) saw Religion standing "on tip-toe in our land, Readie to passe to the American strand;" who celebrated with loving particularity and complete security of belief the meaning of God's temple and worship. It is this poet who can be fully appreciated, in Coleridge's works, only by 'an affectionate and dutiful child of the Church;' and it is to Herbert's writings and life that we owe much of our picture of the order, strength, and beauty of seventeenth-century Anglicanism at its best. But church-bells are heard beyond the stars, and the Anglican parish priest meres with the larger poet, with the very human saint who gives fresh and moving utterance to the aspirations and failures of the spiritual life.

"Deventer, born at The Hague, may be numbered among the founders of modern obstetrics. As a practitioner in his native city, he directed his greatest efforts to the practice of midwifery and to the study of its many unsolved problems. He was also interested in orthopedics and spent a great deal of time studying the bones of the pelvis. It was through his investigations of the normal and deformed pelvis and their effects on the course of labor that he was able to make significant contributions to the science of midwifery. The present work on obstetrics was first published in the Dutch language at Leiden. A more elaborate Latin edition appeared in 1701, and this French translation was made from it."

WENING, Michael (1645-1718)
Munich: Johann Lucas Straub, 1701-26. Hand-coloured engraving by Wening. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and minor foxing. Trimmed to plate mark on right and left sides. 10 3/4 x 28 7/8 inches. 12 x 28 3/4 inches. A fascinating and very beautiful print from Wening's rare work on the castles and monasteries of Bavaria: 'Historico- topographica Descriptio' This image is from Wening's only major published work, a large-scale study of Bavarian towns, churches and mansions published in four volumes between 1701 and 1726. Wening, who was born in Nuremberg, moved to Munich in 1666 and was appointed court engraver in 1669. He applied to Maximilian Emanuel, Duke of Bavaria, for a privilege (i.e the right to publish) for his proposed visual record of the four districts of Bavaria. It was granted, and Wening began to make his drawings in November 1696. By January 1697 he had completed 131 drawings. Evidently, he did not always receive the welcome he thought his due from the Bavarian noblemen whose castles he was drawing, but this only seems to have served to inspire him to make his engravings even more spectacular in order to prove his worth as an artist to his doubtful hosts. The present image has a lively immediacy that is very attractive and often lacking in the work of Wening's contemporaries.

A crisp clean copy includes the final blank. *Tyrrell was a Whig theorist, friend and colleague of John Locke, whose writings were important for the history of liberalism. In this study of Moral Philosophy he concludes that the notion of "the Common Good" is not only the whole law of Nature but the revealed Law of Moses and the great design of Christ's coming into the World. The second part of the work is an interesting point by point comparison of Hobbes' Principles with the law of nature as he sketched it in the first part. Tyrrell was a popularizer who made the political theories accessible to the general public (see Julia Rudolph "Revolution By Degrees: James Tyrrell and Whig Political Thought in the Late 17th Century").

N. de Fer
Paris, 1701. This map focuses on the French explorations and discoveries in the Mississippi Valley and the Gulf Coast. Here, de Fer highlights information gleaned from the expeditions of La Salle and Iberville and its primary purpose was to show the progress of French exploration in the region. The map shows the basically correct relationship of the Mississippi River to Lake Pontchartrain and the Gulf of Mexico. La Salle had explored the Mississippi from the north in 1682-83 and returned by sea to establish a French colony in 1685. He missed the Mississippi delta and landed on the Texas coast, an error probably due to his inability to calculate longitude and because prominent maps of the period placed the mouth of the river far to the west of its true location. The site of La Salle's ill-fated colony near Matagorda Bay in modern Texas is shown and the title cartouche also dramatizes the explorer's tragic death at the hands of his own men., Size : 225x340 (mm), 8.875x13.375 (Inches), Original Outline Coloring

"The clarity of Davenant's thinking, the powerful organization of his writing, the ability to assimilate the best of the ideas of others, and his (rather rarely exercised) capacity to judge from beyond the fray gave his voice and his writing some authority. But he was no original thinker and his natural capacities were those of the able administrator -" With a superb profenance: Simon Harcourt, 1st Viscount Harcourt, PC (c. 1661 - July 23, 1727), was Lord Chancellor of Great Britain. He became Solicitor-General in 1702, and was knighted in the same year. He was a friend of Swift, Pope and Prior First edition.

Page 699/700 with small area scrubbed, very minor loss.

There are anomalies to the run of signatures at the points of loss. The second page '198' should be '305'. The run of text compared with contents, and signatures, indicate that pages 287-394 and pages 625-656 were not meant to be present.
