        Catalogus Omnium Elegantissimorum Librorum, qui in utroque Thesauro Antiquitatum Romanarum ac Graecarum Joh. Georgii Graevii et Jacobi Gronovii, in Folio XXIV. Voluminibus reperiuntur, Ordine alphabetico digestus

      31 pp. 8vo, cont. calf-backed marbled boards. Leyden: P. van der Aa, 1703. First edition and rare. Graevius (1632-1703), German classical scholar and critic, was professor at Utrecht. He had a high reputation as a teacher and was a particular favorite of William III of England, who made him historiographer royal. His editions of the classics marked a distinct advance in scholarship. He is best remembered for his Thesaurus Antiquitatum Romanorum (1694-99), which is the first encyclopedic compilation of the knowledge of the ancient Roman world. His friend and colleague Jacobus Gronovius (1645-1716), Dutch classical scholar, published a complementary work - Thesaurus Antiquitatum Graecarum (1697-1702) - which dealt with ancient Greece. Both are compilations of earlier works by more than 120 contributors; they became standard reference tools throughout the 18th century. Following Graevius's death in early 1703, Peter van der Aa, the publisher of the two thesauri, decided to stimulate sales by issuing the present catalogue. It was designed to be a guide to the contents of each series. It lists the contributors and their texts found in the two thesauri. References to each series, volume, and page number are given. Fine copy.

The rest of the plates show objects seen through the microscope, including a number of illustrations of insects. "The quality of his illustrations of various insects was excellent - particularly those of the fly, louse, mite, flea, and mosquito. Indeed, his drawings of the Culex pipiens (common house mosquito) are the best of the seventeenth century)."-D.S.B., II, p. 591. Very good copy.

      1703. Incisione in rame, colorata d'epoca ai confini, mm 430x560. Sanson, geografo del Re Luigi XIII è considerato il fondatore della cartografia francese, tra i primi ad applicare la trigonometria nelle misurazioni geodetiche; infatti Nicolas Sanson e i suoi collaboratori realizzarono nuove proiezioni geografiche e pubblicarono numerosi atlanti, mentre si affermava l'impiego dei sistemi di misura indiretta mediante i procedimenti trigonometrici applicati in Olanda da Snellius fin dal 1617. Il rilevamento geodetico-topografico basato sulla triangolazione prese rapidamente piede dando alle carte geografiche un aspetto sempre più aderente alla realtà che rappresentavano.Buon esemplare con lievi tracce di ossidazione, piccolo restauro (di mm 20) in basso.

        Kevod Hakhamim: be'urim 'al ha-agadot mi-Talmud Yerushalmi. (Bound with:) Kevod ha-bayit: hibur 'al kol agadot mi-helek rishon 'En Ya'akov.

      Hamburg, (Thomas Rose), 1703 & 1707. Folio: 2 volumes in 1: (II),92; (II),111 not numbered leaves. Binding first half 20th century. Cloth 31 cm (§ Honor of the Wise, and Commentary on aggadot in the Ein Ya'akov of R. Jacob ibn Habib by R. Shimon Wolf ben Jacob of Pintshov) (Ref: J.Chr. Wolf, 'Bibliotheca Hebraea', pars II, Hamburg, 1721, p. 988/89; As there seem to be more than 10 ways to transcribe the title of this book and the name of its author, we adopted the transcription of Worldcat) (Details: Printed completely in rabbinic Hebrew type. Text on both titles within a 'Benveniste-like frame', consisting of woodcut architectural borders. (See below) Depicted on the title is an arched gateway. On the arch stands an imitation of the printer's mark of the Italian Sephardic Jewish printer Immanuel Benveniste, who printed ca. 1650 Jewish books in Amsterdam. His printer's mark was widely imitated by other Jewish printers. It depicts a castle, a standing lion facing the castle, and above that a star. The text of the book is printed in 2 columns. On the front flyleaf is an inscription, explaining succinctly in Hebrew and in Dutch the contents of the first title) (Condition: Cover worn at the extremes. For the endpapers woody paper has been used. The margins of the first title, which is soiled and slightly waterstained, are thumbed; some small old paper repairs to the edges of the first and the last 2 leaves; a few small holes in the title and in the last leaf. Paper yellowing, sometimes browning; partly waterstained; 2 pinpoint wormholes in the first 8 leaves) (Note: Next to nothing is known about Simon or Simeon Wolf ben Jacob, Simon Wolf Jacobsohn, Simon Wolf ben Jäkel, Simon Wolf ben Jekel, Shimion Volf ben Ya'akov, Shimon Volf ben Jekil, there are more possibilities. He was from Pinczow, a small town (70% jewish) not far from Krakow. 'Wegen seiner Bedeutung wurde es mitunter (16th, 17th century) 'polnisches Athen genannt'. (Wikipedia s.v. Pinczow, German) The restored Synagogue of the 16th century is still a sight worth seeing there. The town was once called 'ancient Judea in miniature'. Simon had his books published in Hamburg by the Christian publisher Thomas Rose. Hamburg was a city with a large Jewish population in those days. The Jewish community there began with the settlement of Portuguese 'conversos' at the turn of the 17th century. Thomas Rose bought the typographical equipment of the Hamburg Jewish printer Rebenlini. Rose printed from 1686 till 1709. He was joined by his son Johann who kept on printing Jewish books till 1721. 'Rose acquired later additional fonts and decorative material, including a Benveniste-like frame which he employed on several title pages. Steinschneider describes this usage, as 'cum Frontisp. ad instar Benveniste (Leo cum stella etc.)'. Among the titles that Rose printed are R. Israel Samuel ben Solomon Calahorra's 'Yismah Yisrael'(1686), an alphabetic compendium of the 'halakoth' in the 'Shulhan Arukh', followed by R. Berechiah Berakh Shapira's 'Zeta Berakh', discourses on the weekly Torah readings, and 'Perush Nevi'im Rishonum (1687) with the commentaries of Don Isaac Abrabanel and Jacob Fidanque. (...) Among the other titles that Rose published are R. Joseph Guenzberg's 'Leket Yosef' (1688), homilies and literal interpretations arranged alphabetically; R. Meir ha-Kohen Poppers' 'Or Zaddikim' (1690), kaballistic customs and practices based on the teachings of R. Isaac Luria (ha-Ari), and R. Judah Leib Pukhovitser's 'Divrei Hakhamim (1692), a 2 part ethical discourses and halakhic novellae with kaballistic content. Almost all of the book published by Rose were reprints of earlier editions'. (M.J. Heller, 'The Seventeenth century Hebrew books', vol. 1. Leiden, Brill, 2011, XLIII) Both texts of Simon Wolf ben Jakob are however first editions of not yet published works. The first work in this binding is called 'Kevod Hakhamim' ('Honor of the Wise', or 'Respect for the Sages') The following is based on the information we found in Wolf's 'Bibliotheca Hebraea' and on some Wikipedia lemmata. Simon Wolf ben Jacob was possibly a Rabbi. He is mentioned once in the 'Bibliotheca Hebraea' and is introduced as 'R. Simeon Wolf ben Jacob'. As there is no list of abbreviations in this 'Bibliotheca', we assume that he might have been a Rabbi. Simon Wolf ben Jacob's name figures in an 'Appendix' to the 'Bibliotheca Hebraea', a chapter called 'De subsidiis, quae ad Talmud rectius intelligendum vel tractandum a Christianis aut Iudaeis profecta sunt'. (BH p. 988) Simon Wolf ben Jacob is numbered there among the commentators who produced explaining 'commentationes' on the 'Aggadot(h), (...) i.e. historias, apologos & allegorias disquisitiones, quae in Gemara exstant'. (BH p. 989) Aggadoth (singular Aggadah) 'refer to the homiletic and non-legalistic exegetical texts in the classical rabbanic literature of Judaism, particularly recorded in the Talmud and Mishna'. (Wikipedia s.v. 'Aggadah' (English)) Simon Wolf is not in the first place a compiler, it is argued in this appendix of the Bibliotheca Hebraea, but he is more a commentator. 'Explicarunt autem prae ceteris, eas ('disquisitiones' to the Aggadoth) quidem, quas Talmud Hierosolymitanum suppeditat, R. Sam. Japhe & R. Simeon Wolf ben Jacob'. (BH p. 989) Simon Wolf ben Jacob belonged apparantly to the school of commentators that commented upon the Gemara, which was produced by scholars in Israel ca. 350-400 A.D., also known as the 'Yerushalmi'. (For this school see Wikipedia s.v. 'Gemara' (English)) The other school, the school of the socalled 'Babylonian Talmud', was far more influential in the history of Judaism than that of the 'Yerushalmi'. 'Despite this, the Jerusalem Talmud remains an indispensable source of knowledge of the development of the Jewish Law in the Holy Land. (...) There was some revival of scholarly interest in the Jerusalem Talmud of the 19th and 20th centuries, and modern scholars use it as an invaluable source for the history of Judaism and the development of rabbinical law in antiquity'. (Wikipedia, s.v. 'Jerusalem Talmud', (English)) The Sages mentioned in the title are the scholars on whose authority the Jewish religious tradition rests. 'Jewish tradition had been passed down intact since the time of Moses, with the chain of authority vested in the recognized sages of each generation. These sages had received the authentic tradition, interpreted and explained it to their contemporaries and handed it on to the scholars of the following generation. Rabbinic authority was a basic precept in Jewish religious consciousness. Reliance on and respect for the sages was fundamental'. (M.D. Angel, 'Voices in exile: A study in Sephardic intellectual history', Richmond 1991, p. 18) On the second work of Simon Wolf ben Jacob in this binding, 'Kevod ha-habayit' (Honor of the House), we found some information on the site: "virtualjudaica.com" (/Item/13918/Kevod_ha-Bayit), where a copy of this second volume was auctioned on March 7, 2006. We cite verbatim: 'Only edition of this homiletic commentary on aggadot in the Ein Ya'akov of R. Jacob ibn Habib by R. Shimon Wolf ben Jacob of Pintshov. (...) Within the arch the text (on the second title page) is headed at the peak of the arch with the verse, 'This is the gate of the Lord, into which the righteous shall enter' (Psalms 118:20). The title page is dated from the verse, 'The glory of this latter house shall be greater (than that of the former)' (Haggai 2:9). The author's name does not appear on the title page. However, it is alluded to in the beginning of the introduction, which starts on the verso of the title page, from the enlarged initial letters. This volume, (the volume which was auctioned in 2006) as the title page informs, is part one of Ein Ya'akov. It covers tractates Berakhot through Hagigah. At the end of the volume is the colophon, in which the wish to publish other volumes from this commentary is expressed, a wish that, unfortunately, was not realized. (...) The first printing house to make use of Benveniste's (printer's) mark outside of Amsterdam was that of Thomas Rose, a Christian printer of Hebrew books in Hamburg from 1686-1709' (End of quote). Both works in our copy of Simon Wolf ben Jacob seem to be rare. Of the first one we found in KVK (search 'Kevod' and '1703', 'Kevod' and '1707') one copy in the British Library and one in Cambridge University Library. Of the second we found also 2 copies, one held by the British Library, and the other by the 'Jüdisches Museum Wien') (Collation: pi2, 1 - 46-2; pi2, 1 - 55-2, 56-2 (minus 2) (Photographs on request)

        Diario Di tutte le più memorabili azioni, et opere pie fattesi in Roma Per placare lo sdegno Divino In occasione de Terremoti, che si sentirono in detta Città, et altrove Nel di 14. Di Genaro, e 2. di Febraro dell?anno 1703. Scritto Dall?Arciv.vo Gio: Cristoforo Battelli Segretario delle Lettere Latine, e Custode della Biblioteca Domestica della Sant.à di Nostro Sig:re Papa Clemente XI. Manuscript on paper , , after May 1703].

      after May 1703].. Early 18th-century manuscript on paper, 273x197 mm. 179 leaves, including seven blanks. complete. Text written by two different Italian hands in brown ink, single column of 25 lines, with contemporary inked pagination. Contemporary vellum on pasteboards. Spine with raised bands, inked title ?Battelli Diario de Terremoti?. At the foot the number ?890? in brown ink; remains of a later paper label. Minor stains to lower cover. Excellent state, light finger-soiling, a few small ink stains and dampstaining. Numerous interlinear and marginal corrections, probably by Battelli himself. Unpublished and unstudied manuscript, a detailed chronicle of 1703 earthquake written by Battelli, secretary of the Apostolic Chancery of Briefs, and personal librarian of Clemens xi. The text is introduced by a long epistle to the readers, and the events are reported from the night of 14 January to 22 May 1703, i.e. the date of the last Pope?s brief transcribed by Battelli. Possibly the manuscript was later reworked with a view of its publication, as could be proved by the fact that on the first leaf Battelli?s previous title of ?Monsignore? has been modified in ?Arcivescovo?: Battelli was made archbishop of Amasea in 1716. Copies of this manuscript are not recorded in the Biblioteca Vaticana, but the title of a Storia di quanto occorse in Roma in occasione del terremoto l?anno 1703 is listed by Filippo Vecchietti among Battelli?s unpublished works (Biblioteca Picena ii, p. 112). A very interesting, and precious source for this historical Roman earthquake, an useful integration to the accounts and data reported by other authors, and first by Luca Antonio Chracas in 1704 (see item 27).

Damit es ein recht vollkommenes Garten-Buch seyn möge, mit sehr nützlichen Anmerckungen, und zweyen Anhängen, zu dem ersten und dritten Theile, wie auch mit dem gantzen vierdten Theile, als Beschreibung eines Artzney-Gartens. . . bey dieser letztern Aufflage mit einem neuen Anhange eines Garten- Memorials, wie auch mit drey nützlichcn Registern versehen durch Theodorum Phytologum. Leipzig, Johann Ludwig Gleditsch, 1703. Small 4to. [6] + 392 + [47]p. Title in red and black. 10 engraved plates, 1 signed by A. C. Böcklin. Contemporary vellum boards, gilt title on spine. Heinrich Hesse produced this important horticultural work and invaluable source book as a result of his experience as head gardener to the Elector of Mainz for over 20 years. It was specially intended for German-speaking peoples, and with their soil and climate in mind; where possible Latin and foreign words have been translated into the vernacular, and a dictionary has also been appended. The four sections deal with the cultivation and choice of plants including citrus fruits and other tender and exotic species, flowers, shrubs, vegetables and pot-herbs, ornamental, nut and fruit trees, as well as some 4pp on varieties of tobacco plant. There are many plant lists, with fruit trees noticeably of French origin; reputable seed merchants and florists arc named including Hans Georg Krauß of Augsburg, whose carnation catalogue is supplied. The plates depict five garden designs attached to modest country villas, illustrations of specimen plants (the signed plate is apparently a giant English artichoke), horticultural operations and two interesting early examples of greenhouses (see K. Lemmon, The Covered Garden, 1962, p 41. The garden layouts are also of interest in reflecting the Dutch taste for small country houses subordinate to a garden scheme and completely surrounded by canals. ‘Theodorus Phytologus’ who has contributed the preface as well as additional material, remarks on Hesse’s connections with Count John of Nassau (1604- 79), the renowned Dutch Stadtholder and innovative garden designer whose ideas had much influence in parts of northern Germany. Loudon in his selected catalogue of useful German reference works (Encyclopaedia of Gardening, 1827), lists an edition of 1713. A good copy, the centre pages uniformly toned because of paper condition. Not in Pritzel, or Hunt. Seguier, Bibliotheca Botanica, 5740 lists a 1696 edition. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      Added engraved title & 40 engraved plates (three are folding). 1 p.l., 106 pp., one blank leaf. Small 4to, cont. English panelled calf (corners renewed, rebacked, some dampstaining in gutter at foot to first ten leaves). Rome: A. de Rubeis, 1703. First separate edition, originally published as the second part of the author's Observationes circa viventia (1691). Our edition -- which is actually the original printing of the second part with a new title-page -- is very rare with only one copy located by WorldCat. Buonanni (1738-1725), one of the most learned Jesuits of his time, was a pupil of Athanasius Kircher, and succeeded his master as teacher of mathematics at the Collegium Romanum. This work is one of the earliest Italian treatises on microscopy. It contains interesting observations on early microscopes and a precise description of Buonanni's own compound microscopes, which are illustrated on two plates. The rest of the plates show objects seen through the microscope, including a number of illustrations of insects. "The quality of his illustrations of various insects was excellent -- particularly those of the fly, louse, mite, flea, and mosquito. Indeed, his drawings of the Culex pipiens (common house mosquito) are the best of the seventeenth century)."-D.S.B., II, p. 591. Very good copy.

        AN ACCOUNT OF THE COMMITMENT, ARRAIGNMENT, TRYAL AND CONDEMNATION OF NICHOLAS BAYARD ESQ; FOR HIGH TREASON, IN ENDEAVORUING TO SUBVERT THE GOVERNMENT OF THE PROVINCE OF NEW YORK IN AMERICA, BY HIS SIGNING AND PROCURING OTHERS TO SIGN SCANDALOUS LIBELS...

      London: Printed at New York by order of his Excellency the Lord Cornbury, and reprinted at London, 1703. 31,[1]pp. Antique-style half calf and marbled boards. Title-leaf neatly lined on verso, several small marginal tears carefully repaired, light overall browning. Else a very attractive copy. The first British (and earliest obtainable) edition of one of the earliest printed American judicial proceedings. Nicholas Bayard (1644-1707), nephew of Peter Stuyvesant, was mayor of New York and a member of the governor's council. When Jacob Leisler seized control of the government of New York in 1689, Bayard was a prime target, and he fled to Albany, where he was seized, brought back to the fort, and imprisoned. Finally Gov. Sloughter arrived from England and had Bayard released. In 1697 the new governor, Bellomont, accused Bayard of complicity with the previous governor in the encouragement and protection of pirates. Bayard was removed from office and later accused of encouraging sedition and mutiny and of being a Jacobite. Tried for high treason, he was sentenced to be hanged, drawn, and quartered. The present work contains the entire text of the 1701/2 proceedings, which were subsequently declared to have been illegal. The first edition, printed in New York in 1702, is known in only a few copies, in the usual institutions. This British edition, which contains additional text, is almost as scarce. HOWES B256, "b."

        Risposta alla terza lettera apologetica contra il Cartesio creduto da più d'Aristotele di Benedetto Aletino. Opera, in cui dimostrasi quanto salda, e pia sia la filosofia di Renato delle Carte, e perché questo si debba stimare più d'Aristotele. Colonia, Hecht (ma Napoli, Rosselli), 1703

      Hecht (ma Rosselli), 1703. in - 8, pp. (8), 515, (5), legatura piena perg., titolo ms. al dorso. Il nome dell'autore (Napoli 1667 - 1750), svelato dallo stampatore stesso nell'avviso ''A chi legge'', fu avvocato, cultore delle belle lettere e in particolare profondo conoscitore del pensiero di Descartes. Prima edizione. ''Questa risposta, più ancora delle prime due (apparse rispettivamente nel 1699 e 1702) rappresenta uno fra i più importanti documenti nella diffusione del pensiero e delle opere di Descartes in ambiente napoletano'' (DBIt., vol. 59, p. 491). L'opera s'innesta nell'interminabile polemica col gesuita Giovan Battista de Benedictis, che nel 1694, sotto lo pseudonimo di Benedetto Aleatino, aveva pubblicato a Napoli le ''Lettere apologetiche in difesa della teologia scolastica e della filosofia peripatetica'', contenenti, tra l'altro, aspri attachi al pensiero cartesiano. Benché l'opera del Grimaldi riscuotesse notevole successo ed il favore di molti illustri personaggi dell'epoca, tra cui Gravina, Muratori, Magliabechi e Mabillon, nel 1726, in seguito alla publicazione l'anno precedente a Lucca di una nuova edizione, con nuove aggiunte e col preciso intento di affermare la ''libertas philosophandi'', la condanna della congregazione dell'Indice arrivò inesorabile a colpire sia la prima che la seconda edizione delle ''Risposte''. Bell'esempl. (timbro nel margine bianco del titolo).

        Le Fabriche, e Vedute di Venetia.

      Venice 1703 - Third edition. Landscape folio (30 x 42.2 cm). Engraved title, dedication to Doge Luigi Mocenigo dated 27 May 1703, and 103 numbered etched views by Carlevaris; puncture marks to the centre-verso of plate 103 running through to plate 95, with associated small holes to plates 100-103, occasional faint soiling and browning. Contemporary panelled calf, gilt spine with red morocco lettering-piece, speckled edges, rebacked preserving spine. The best work by the first distinguished painter of Venetian Veduta and one of the earliest practitioners of this painting type. Born in Udine, Carlevaris (1663-1730) moved to Venice at the age of sixteen. The present work, consisting of 103 engravings, is the most complete survey of the fabriche of the city ever produced and served as a model for Venetian view painters throughout the 18th century. It is the first series of Venetian views conceived of as a whole and consists of predominantly frontal views of the most important buildings and squares of Venice, particularly the Piazza San Marco. It was intended as an accurate description of Venice's beauties for foreigners. The views are arranged hierarchically the principal sites and buildings of the city. Amongst the most striking views are those of the private palaces (plates 65-103). "Carlevaris often achieves extraordinary clarity and appeal by the almost modern economy of his line, especially when illustrating the more modest structures that often flank the patrician palaces on which the series is focused. The large blank wall areas soaked with light, the planarity of his of his architectural rendering, and his sky and water, were to be influential not only on his immediate contemporaries, such as Canaletto and Visenti, but also later printmakers like Charles Meryon." (Millard). A wide-margined copy of the third edition with the plates numbered 1-101 in second state, and plates 102 and 103 numbered on the left in first state. Berlin Kat 2682.

        Stato di Milano e Provincie Confinanti dalla Parte Orientale &c

      1703. Il titolo della carta è inserito in alto a destra in un decorativo festone sostenuto da un putto alato; vi si legge "STATO DI MILANO e Provincie Confinanti dalla Parte Orientale". A sinistra della carta si segnalano, entro un drappo sostenuto da un angioletto, delle curiose avvertenze al lettore: "Lettore / Se in questa Carta non / vedrai delineati tutti i / luoghi piccoli sappi che / l'intentione è stata di metterti per ora sotto gl'occhi i più principali, / con le strade, e Fiumi, / per darti poi a vedere / in altro più diffuso dis / segno minutamente cio, / che manca al presente, / e vivi felice". La carta fu sicuramente edita come foglio singolo; infatti, come si legge nella dedica al lettore, l'autore preannuncia l'uscita di una carta successiva più particolareggiata, di cui però non si hanno notizie. La carta del Frattino nacque in un momento particolare della storia del Ducato di Milano, in quanto contemporanea al passaggio tra il dominio spagnolo e quello austriaco avvenuto nel 1706. Fu considerata molto importante per la precisione con cui erano segnati i confini del Ducato di Milano verso il Piemonte, tanto che il governo austriaco nel 1739 ne sollecitò l'acquisto.Riferimenti: Davoli, Sanfelici, Zanasi Terre di Langobardia la Lombardia, il corso del Po' e il Ducato Estense nell'antica cartografia a stampa 1520 - 1796, pag. 108.

         Carte du Canada ou de la Nouvelle France et des découvertes qui y ont été faites.

      Paris chez l'auteur Rue des Canettes prez de St. Sulpice 1703 496 x 650 mm. L'une des plus remarquables cartes du Canada du début du XVIII° siècle, et l'une des plus importantes de Guillaume de l'Isle. C'est la première carte qui donne une représentation correcte des cinq Grands Lacs, la première également sur laquelle figure la ville de Détroit, deux ans seulement après la fondation de cette ville par Cadillac, ainsi qu'une colonie à Chicago. Guillaume de l'Isle utilisa les compte-rendus les plus récents transmis par les voyageurs français comme Jean-Baptiste-louis Franquelin et Louis Jolliet, et les tout premiers missionnaires jésuites. La carte montre également la mythique Rivière Longue se jetant dans le Mississippi, citée la première fois par le baron de Lahontan en 1703. Le cartouche de titre a été partiellement restauré : la couronne et les fleurs de lys, découpées à la Révolution, ont été redessinées ; les mots "Royale" et "Maj.", grattés à la Révolution, ont été recomposés. Exemplaire aux contours aquarellés à l'époque. Tooley, p. 20, 35.
