Fisches, Isaac (Maler) & Heckenauer, Leonhard (Stecher).
Augsburg. 1702. J.M.Roth - Augsburgisches Friedens - Gedächtnüs Die „ Augsburger Friedensgemälde „ sind jährlich erscheinende Einblattdrucke mit erläuterndem Text, die an den Westfälischen Frieden von 1648 erinnern sollten. Die Initiative dazu ist von der evangelischen Barfüßergemeinde ausgegangen. Zwischen 1651 und 1789 erschienen insgesamt 138 Blätter mit Kupferstichen unter Beteiligung von 55 Künstlern als Zeichner und Kupferstecher; allein für das Jahr 1653 ist kein Kupferstich, sondern nur ein Gebet gedruckt worden. „ Die Reihe ist somit ein Musterbuch der Augsburger Künstler dieser Zeit". Die Druckplatten wurden von der Barfüßer-Pfarrei aufbewahrt; es folgten immer wieder Nachdrucke, die in Sammelbänden mit eigenem Titel und einer Einführung verlegt wurden. Nach der Herausgabe im Jubiläumsjahr 1748 folgten bis 1789 noch 41 Jahrgänge. Sämtliche Jahrgänge wurden 1790 ein letztes Mal mit neuem Titel versehen herausgegeben. Lit.: Seitz, Augsburg. Anhand der großen Auswahl der gezeigten Blätter, an der teils bedeutende Stecher und Zeichner der Augsburger Schule beteiligt waren, lässt sich die Stielentwicklung des Augsburger Kupferstichs vom Hoch- über den Spätbarock bis zum Rokoko ( etwa ab 1740 ) verfolgen; die letzten Stiche zeigen sogar frühklassizischtischen Stil. - In leuchtenden Farben kolorierter Kupferstich. Sprache: Deutsch Kolorierter Kupferstich. 46 x 31 cm. mit dem Text.

WOODWARD, John
London: T.W. for Richard Wilkin, 1702. Second edition. Contemporary calf, elaborate gilt spine. Presentation inscription from the author on the fly-leaf ("Ex dono autoris amici mei plurissme. . . ." From the library of the Earl of Stradbroke with his oval engraved bookplate and his inscription dated 1827 on the paste-down. A beautiful copy. Second edition of what is considered the beginning of scientific geology in England. This influential book presents the orthodox contemporary views of earth's structure. Woodward describes how he took every opportunity to examine digging operations, and dispatched questionnaires to all parts of the world. "The information was a valuable contribution towards the knowledge of the regularity of the earth's structure everywhere" (Wolfe, History of Science, Technology and Philosophy, pp. 352, 364). In this work, Woodward (1665-1728) recognized the existence of various strata in the earth's crust and the true nature of fossils, failing only to make the assumptions regarding the method of formation of the rocks that earned William Smith the title of father of English geology. His most important contribution to science is his catalogue of the fossils which in the course of long years he had collected in England, and which now form an interesting portion of the Sedgwick Museum at Cambridge.

(Simon “The Fox” Fraser). Lovat (Scotland). Tenants
[Edinburgh Folio. [1] p.. ca. 1702] The tenants of the Lovat estate petition for a delay in producing the writs and securities of their holdings, as the protracted dispute between the Lovat family and the infamous Capt. Simon Fraser of Beaufort (who attempted a forced marriage to the family's heiress, young Amelia Fraser, before successfully kidnapping and wedding her mother, the dowager Lady Amelia Murray) has left them in a sorry state regarding the payment of creditors. Not only does this broadside touch on the common perspective of a great contemporary scandal, but it is of interest for its scarcity as well. => No holdings are listed by WorldCat, ESTC, or NUC Pre-1956. Excellent clean condition, with two small sewing holes at inner margin, one very small spot of foxing, and ink traces from printing process to outer edge. Tipped onto a leaf of 19th-century paper.

Den Haag (La Haye): Henry van Bulderen, 1702. |~||~||~||~||~| Fourth Edition of Vols 1 & 2, Second Edition of Vol 3. François-Maximilien Misson (ca. 1650-1722), a Protestant from Lyon, was forced to seek refuge with his family in England upon the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685. His father became a minister within the Huguenot community of London, and Misson found employment as tutor to Charles Butler, later Earl of Arran. It was with his pupil that Misson undertook the Grand Tour of which he gave an account in this book. The two traveled to Italy via Rotterdam, Cologne, Munich and Innsbruck, crossing the Brenner Pass, then to Verona and Venice, visiting points of interest in and near Naples, making a long visit to Rome, and returning via Bologna, Milan, Genoa, Turin, Geneva, Strasbourg and Brussels. His work, in the form of a series of letters, describes every locale visited and is "resoundingly modern" in tone, containing an orderly account of "first-hand factual observations… augmented by the critical perspective of a protestant travelling through a Catholic country" (Oxford DNB). First published in 1691, translated into English in 1695, the work was hugely popular and was frequen … [Click Below for Full Description]

Modern restoration in tough brown cloth with gilt spine lettering, and new endsheets in off white a full shade brighter than the text.

The text is unusually decent, supple if a trifle wavy, very few flaws worthy of note, remarkably minimal foxing. The last few pages have extra rippling, perhaps as made.

Enstaka fläckar, t.ex. på s. 35-36. Med Eric Edman Johanssons och Samuel Triewalds namnteckningar samt Carl Jedvard Bondes formklippta exlibris. Från Ericsberg. Warmholtz Bibliotheca historica Sueo-Gothica 6896. Enligt Per Hierta var Lundius "Notæ" det Rudbeckska tryckeriets sista arbete före branden (jämte fjärde delen av Atland) och en stor del av upplagan gick upp i rök. Warmholtz skriver att "boken är nu för tiden nog sälsynt". Lundius lät 1703 trycka ett nytt titelblad samt tre olika dedikationer till en del av de exemplar som fanns kvar. Dessa blad är mycket ovanliga men finns alltså i detta exemplar. Själva påvebullan är ett grovt falsarium som går ut på att visa att Västgötalagens beskrivning av Danaholmstraktaten, då den svenska kungen satt till häst och den danska kungen höll i betslet, är sann, till skillnad från Skånelagens skildring, som är den omvända. Nils Ahnlund har visat att den notoriska lustlögnaren Nils Rabenius, kyrkoherde i Hedemora, lämnat sitt visitkort i texten, då den västmanländska representanten påstås tillhöra släkten Rabbe, en uppdiktad medeltida släkt s … [Click Below for Full Description]

Isaak Commelin; René Augustin Constatin de Renneville
Estienne Roger c. 1702, Amsterdam. Edition : First French edition., Contemporary full calf with blind-ruled borders, spine in six compartments of raised bands and gilt floral motifs, red morocco label on two, edges speckled red. , Includes early important maps of South Africa, Madagascar, Bali, and Java.This is a French reissue of the account of early Dutch voyages published in 1608 by Commelin. This is the first French translation from the original Dutch, carried out by Renneville. The Dutch were engaged in searching for the most efficient sea route to the East Indies, including a ?North-East Passage? to the north of Russia. The first part documents the early exploring expeditions to the northeast, between 1591 and 1595. It describes only three voyages, including the famous wintering in Nova Zembla. The second part describes the first Dutch voyage by way of the Cape of Good Hope under the command of Houtman (1595-96).

[New York City Liquor License]:
[New York: Printed by William Bradford, 1702-1714].. Broadside, 7 1/4 x 11 1/2 inches. Light foxing. Very good. An unrecorded printed blank form for a retail alcohol sales license in New York city, produced for the Mayor's office during the first two decades of New York printing. The final lines of the form date the printing to the reign of Queen Anne (1702-14), during which time William Bradford was the only working printer in New York. William Bradford (1663-1752) was the "pioneering printer of the English middle colonies" (DAB) - the first in both Pennsylvania and New York. He originally settled in Pennsylvania, where he began operating a printing press in 1685 and a bookstore in 1688. Various controversies led to significant legal hassles there, including the temporary seizure of his types and paper in 1692, and in 1693 Bradford answered a call to come to New York and print the acts of assembly and other official papers for the colonial council. No records have been found locating an alcohol license form printed in New York earlier than the present document, making this the first known example of its kind. DAB II, pp.563-64.

L’interesse per questi corpi celesti era dovuto al recente passaggio della cometa che Halley aveva previsto per il 1757 e che invece, a causa del fu visibile solo dl dicembre dell’anno seguente e raggiunse il suo perielio, cioè il punto di minor distanza dal sole nel marzo-aprile 1759, a causa del ritardo dell’orbita provocato dall’effetto gravitazionale dalla congiunzione di Giove e Saturno. Il primo dei tre libri che compongono l’opera analizza le opinioni degli antichi filosofi, compresa quella di Aristotele che pensava si trattassero di esalazioni terrestri per dimostrare che non si tratta di questo, né di pianeti. Nel secondo si analizzano due tipi diversi di comete, quelle "surlunaires ou supérieurs & éloignées, les autres sublunaires ou inférieurs & voisines de la Terre".

The German, Job Ludolf, was the first to bring the study of Etiopian subjects into a system, and his present work is the first of its kind to see the light of day. It was unusal for the time to take up the study of something like the Ethiopian laguage, and after Ludolfus' important philological works followed a long period of neglect, which did not end till the second half of the nineteenth century, when these studies were finally resumed, causing them to flourish.
