        "Legion's humble address to the Lords. To the right honourable the Lords spiritual and temporal, assembled in Parliament"

      [London. 1704]. "Broadsheet, small folio (315 x 152 mm); left-hand margin trimmed close in lower half of sheet, touching a few letters, minor tears from previous fold, uniformly toned. A rare broadsheet sometimes attributed to Defoe (although more likely written by his agent in Scotland John Pierce), praising the Lords for their action affirming the right of freeholders to vote in the Aylesbury election. There is much evidence to associate Pierce with this pamphlet, and he may well have been the author, though it is possible that he and Defoe collaborated on it. & & Moore 74 describes a 4- page printing of this address, but notes there is a ""copy with 2 unnumbered pages"" at Indiana University. This copy would seem to conform to that at Indiana. & & ""There can be no doubt that [Defoe] was deeply involved in it, in conjunction with ... John Pierce, ... the weight of evidence is in favour of Pierce, rather than Defoe, as the actual author"" (ESTC citing Furbank and Owens, Defoe de-attributions).

        Specimen geographiae physicae quo agitur de terra, et corporibus terrestribus speciatim mineralibus: nec non mari, fluminibus, & fontibus. Accedit diluvii universalis...

      Tiguri, typis D. Gessneri, 1704. Small-8vo. pp. (14), 231, (21). Recent vellum. A translation into Latin by the great Swiss naturalist J.J. Scheuchzer of Woodward's 'An essay towards a natural history of the earth' published in 1695. John Woodward (1665-1728) was a famous English geologist and founder of the Woodwardian chair of geology at the University of Cambridge. "An important figure in the history of geology, Woodward proposed that a universal flood had once disintegrated all the stony and mineral matter forming the earth's crust along with animals and plants, though the latter were not destroyed beyond recognition. Fossils, he asserted, were definitely the remains of once living animals or plants. This 'Essay' had a wide effect in Great Britain and Europe" (Hoover 896).//Eyles in his essay 'John Woodward a bio-bibliographical account of his life and work' published in 'J. Soc. Bibphy nat. Hist.' vol. 5 pp. 399-427 lists all editions of Woodward's works.

        Reflections on Mr. Burchet’s Memoirs: Or Remarks on His Account of Captain Wilmont’s Expedition to the West-Indies

      London, 1704. (xviii) 171 pp. Very nice copy of a scarce book documenting a cat fight between a British naval officer and his army counterpart. Robert Wilmot’s 1695 expedition was sent to Jamaica to protect British interests against the French. Lillingstone’s regiment of about 1200 soldiers accompanied the expedition, which attacked the French at Hispaniola. Although the venture was poorly planned and a number of Lillingstone’s men were sick and ineffective, they somehow managed to capture considerable loot. However, this became the cause of a quarrel between Wilmot and Lillingstone, who were already on poor terms. The entire force, ravaged by yellow fever, retired; Wilmot sailed for England and died of the same disease on the way home. When Lillingston returned to England he published a scathing attack on Wilmot. In reply, Josiah Burchett, Secretary of the Admiralty, published an account of the affair which did not reflect well on Lillingston. This is Lillingston’s answer to Burchett’s critique. Thanks to the tortured train of attacks and counter-attacks, this work is a detailed summary of the events that took place on the expedition, and is an important document in the War of the English Succession. A clean fresh copy bound in mottled calf, rebacked to match, with original spine label laid down.

      Tiele, Bibl. 869; cf. Blackmer 1323 (English ed.); for the author: Baigent, "Pococke, Richard (1704-1765"; in: ODNB (online ed.) First Dutch translation of Pococke's important and popular description of his travels in the East. The narrative provides detailed information on the fauna, flora, topography, and the local manners of the areas Pococke visited. Volume one covers Egypt, volume two is devoted to Palestine, Syria, Mesopotamia, Cypress, Crete, and the Greek archipelago, and the last volume contains descriptions of Asia Minor, Thrace and Greece. The present Dutch edition was augmented with 27 plates and an essay by the minister Rutger Schutte, an expert on biblical antiquities.Pococke's description of Egypt was one of the earliest modern accounts of the area, and includes a report of his journey along the Nile, which he ascended as far as Philae. The narrative enjoyed great popularity and was translated into several European languages. "The quality and particularly the earliness of his observations and their record in prose, maps, and diagrams make him one of the most important near eastern travellers, ranking with Frederik Ludvig Norden and Carsten Niebuhr, in stimulating an Egyptian revival in European art and architecture, and recording much that has subsequently been lost" (Baigent). Very fine uniformly bound and uncut set.

        Legion's humble address to the Lords. To the right honourable the Lords spiritual and temporal, assembled in Parliament

      [London 1704 - Broadsheet, small folio (315 x 152 mm); left-hand margin trimmed close in lower half of sheet, touching a few letters, minor tears from previous fold, uniformly toned. A rare broadsheet sometimes attributed to Defoe (although more likely written by his agent in Scotland John Pierce), praising the Lords for their action affirming the right of freeholders to vote in the Aylesbury election. There is much evidence to associate Pierce with this pamphlet, and he may well have been the author, though it is possible that he and Defoe collaborated on it. Moore 74 describes a 4- page printing of this address, but notes there is a "copy with 2 unnumbered pages" at Indiana University. This copy would seem to conform to that at Indiana. "There can be no doubt that [Defoe] was deeply involved in it, in conjunction with . John Pierce, . the weight of evidence is in favour of Pierce, rather than Defoe, as the actual author" (ESTC citing Furbank and Owens, Defoe de-attributions).

Psalmanazar (N.F.B. de Rodes ?), a native from the south of France, led the life of a adventurer. Being instructed by Jesuit tutors in the history and geography of Japan he pretended to be a native of Japan, under influence of chaplain William Innes, to render the story more plausible, this was changed into being a native of Formosa. In London he attracted at once popular interest. Psalmanazar invented his own 'Formosan' language etc., and he wrote his fictitious narration. What was not due to his own imagination he borrowed from the accounts of Varenius and Candidius. Doubt at once arose over the authenticity of his narrative, and after Innes was sent as chaplain-general to the English forces in Portugal, he felt incompetent to sustain his imposture unaided.

        Discourses Concerning Government, Publish’d from an Original Manuscript. To which is Added, The Paper he deliver’d to the Sheriffs immediately before his Death. And an Alphabetical Table

      London: Printed by J. Darby, 1704. . Second edition, folio, (viii), 424, (48) pp, with some mispagination. Portrait frontispiece, armorial bookplate of Admiral of the Fleet Sir William Rowley (c.1690-1768). Contemporary full panelled calf, rather worn with restoration to corners, rebacked in a lighter calf with a new label and new free endpapers. Elected to the Long Parliament in 1645, Sidney initially opposed the execution of Charles I, but changed his mind during the Interregnum. A period of exile after the Restoration saw him negotiating with Louis XIV for a planned English uprising, and once he had returned to England in 1677 he remained involved in republican politics. Implicated in the Rye House Plot, he was tried and beheaded in 1683.& First published in 1698, this work cemented his reputation as a hero to the Whigs and later the Americans. A motto he wrote in a visitor’s book at the University of Copenhagen was subsequently used on the Seal of Massachusetts.

        Oaths & Declarations": William Penn, Jr. and Quakers Sign Separate Declaration to Sit on Pennsylvania Council with Non-Quakers

      1704 - Manuscript Document Signed. N.p. [likely Philadelphia, Pennsylvania], n.d. [ca. February-September 1704]. 2 pp., on bifolium sheet. 320 x 198 mm. One page docketed on verso, "Oaths & Declarations / of Members of Council / Stenton." Document signed by Pennsylvania's political leaders during a stormy period in the province's history, which saw chronic tensions between Quakers and non-Quakers, between the "lower counties" of Delaware and the rest of the province, and between the proprietor (William Penn) and the Assembly. All the same, the separate signatures on two sheets of paper attests to the landmark commitment of Penn to religious tolerance. TranscriptWe whose names are hereunto Subscribed do solemnly promise and swear that wee and each of us will faithfully discharge the Trust of Members of Council for ye Government of the Province of Pensilvania and Territories to which wee are called to the best of our ability and understanding and that the Secrets of the said Council we will inviolably keep. So help us God Roger Mompesson / Will Rodeney / Willm Trent / Jasper Yeates / George Rocke / James Pidgeon / Ro: Ffrench / Antho[ny] Palmer[2]Wee whose names are hereunto Subscribed do Declare in the presence of Almighty God the Witness of the Truth of what we say That we and each of us will faithfully discharge the Trust of Members of Council for the Government of the Province of Pensilvania and Territories to which wee are called to the best of our ability and understanding and that the Secrets of the said Council we will inviolably keep. Wm Penn Jr / James Logan / Richard Hill / Isaac Norris Samuel PrestonHistorical BackgroundIn 1701, before leaving Pennsylvania to return to England, William Penn instituted the Charter of Privileges (sometimes referred to as the Charter of Liberties), which established his colony's fourth frame of government. One significant clause codified the right to freedom of conscience by providing an option other than oaths for office-holders: "all Persons who also profess to believe in Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the World, shall be capable (notwithstanding their other Persuasions and Practices in Point of Conscience and Religion) to serve this Government in any Capacity, both legislatively and executively, he or they solemnly promising, when lawfully required, Allegiance to the King as Sovereign, and Fidelity to the Proprietary and Governor, and taking the Attests as now established by the Law." This freedom was not without controversy, it being held by the Queen-in-Council that oaths were mandatory. However, the religious beliefs of the Quakers prohibited their taking oaths.Pennsylvania's Provincial Council comprised both Quakers and non-Quakers. Following Penn's 1701 Charter, and an additional 1704 Act of the Assembly concerning the regulation of courts, members of the colonial government professed oaths or affirmations, depending on their religious persuasions.Thus, the present document is divided into two halves. The first page is signed by eight non-Quaker members who took the oath written at the top of the page. Under Penn's 1701 Charter, Councilors were appointed by the Proprietor, or by the proprietary governor, and served as an advisory body with little formal powers, but great social stature. It is notable that this document includes the signature of William Penn, Jr. (whose signature is nearly identical to that of his father). Penn, Jr. was only in the colony for six months in 1704, during which time he caused quite a number of disturbances, including a tussle with a member of the city watch. Isaac Norris would write to a friend in September 1704: "William Penn, Jr., is quite gone off from Friends. He being in company with some extravagants, that beat the watch at Enoch Story's . He talks of going home in the Jersey man-of-war next month. I wish things had been better, or he had never come" (quoted in Janney, The Life of William Penn).Although intended .

      Lisbon, Na Officina de Miguel Manescal, Impressor do Santo Officio, & da Serenissima Casa de Bragança, 20 de Settembro de 1704. - Woodcut vignette on title page.

(1 l.), 10 pp. 5 works in 1 volume. 4°, late nineteenth-century quarter sheep over marbled boards (rubbed, wear to corners), flat spine with gilt fillets and gilt lettering, marbled endleaves, text-block edges sprinkled. Light browning; a few small stains. Overall in very good condition. 5 works in 1 volume. ---- FIRST EDITION of these eyewitness descriptions of the Battle of Blenheim, 13 August 1704. Two of the letters are dated 13 August and the other 17 August. Frederick I, landgrave of Hesse-Kassel, and Baron van Hompesch are both reporting to the States General of the Netherlands. They were presumably part of the Dutch contingent that marched south with the Duke of Marlborough, and met up with Eugene of Savoy in July. This report includes details of troop movements during the battle and a list of French officers and battalions that were taken prisoner.At the Battle of Blenheim, the Duke of Marlborough and Prince Eugene of Savoy led English, Dutch, and Austrian troops to a decisive defeat of the French and Bavarian forces under Marshal Tallard and the Elector of Bavaria. This was probably the most decisive victory in the War of the Spanish Succession (1701-1714); the victory saved Vienna and thus preserved the Habsburg Empire and the Grand Alliance. The French lost some 20,000 men; another 15,000 or so were captured. The myth of the invincible French army was destroyed. Bavaria withdrew from the war (it was soon placed under Austrian military rule), and Louis XIV had to face the fact that he would not win an early, easy victory.The march of John Churchill, Duke of Marlborough, from the Low Countries to the Danube, culminating in the Battle of Blenheim, was a model of planning, logistics, and tactical and operational skill. It assured Marlborough's status as one of the foremost military leaders of the age. ---- Coimbra, @Miscelâneas 8675. Not in Innocêncio or Fonseca, @Pseudónimos. NUC: Relaçam dos successos: MH.

Typographical headpiece and woodcut initial on p. 3. FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this account of events in Catalonia during the War of the Spanish Succession. The author recounts how Barcelona?s defenses were improved after D. Carlos captured the city in October 1705, in anticipation of a new attack by the French under the Duc de Noailles. It includes movements of the French troops in Catalonia and their final descent upon Montjuich, whence they began bombarding the city on 8 April 1706. In early August, a fleet under Lord Peterborough arrived and the French withdrew in haste, leaving artillery, ammunition, food, and other goods (e.g., "pares de çapatos doze mil").D. Carlos?s attempts to improve relations with Barcelona?s people and government officials are given considerable space. The Miqueletes, Catalonian militiamen who supported the French, are mentioned several times.The author not only reports military details but expresses strong opinions, e.g., "Para esta empreza se valeo França daquella maxima que lhe vemos praticar com grande fruto ? a qual consiste em exagerar as suas forças, promettendo exercitos, & Armadas formidaveis, que depois na execução se vem serem muito inferiors; & assim publicou que poria sobre Barc [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

He pursued wide studies of the Slavonic and Russian history of learning, out of which the present work is a result. He was an eager supporter of a strict orthodox disciplin of faith. On pp. 271-72 there are a "Kort påminnelse" ("Short reminder") of queen Christina's instructions regarding publishing texts in Russian, about Russia and Russian religion, signed by Johan Roselin (raised to nobility with the name Rosenlindt 1650), "ryss-tolck" ("Russian interpreter").
