        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 .

        Relaçam dos successos da batalha do Danubio, que contem mais individualidades das que athe aqui se tem publicado, acreditades com as copias das cartas, que se escreverão aos Estados Gerais pelos Generais das suas tropas.

      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. Nine-line woodcut initial on p. 1. Large woodcut tailpiece on p. 10. (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]

        An Historical and Geographical Description of Formosa, an Island Subject to the Emperor of Japan

      London: Dan. Brown; G. Strahan and W. Davis; and Francis Coggan,, 1704. Giving an Account of the Religion, Custom, Manner, &c. of the Inhabitants. Together with a Relation of what happen'd to the Author in his Travels. Octavo (193 × 118 mm). Later lightly sprinkled calf, red morocco label, low bands bracketed by single gilt rules, gilt floral roll to the turn-ins. 16 engraved plates, 2 of them folding, one being the table of the Formosan language. A little rubbed, particularly on the joints, the upper cracked to the cords but holding, head-cap chipped, tan-burn to the endpapers, some browning, that to signature [a] quite strong, small paper flaw to Q5, costing just a couple of letters verso, overall very good. First edition. A very good copy of this, probably the most famous of all historical literary frauds. Psalmanazar was a Gascon who, down on his luck, "in order to gain alms … decided to make his identity more exotic, and posed as a Japanese" (ODNB). As part of this imposture he developed his own "Formosan" language inventing "twenty letters with shapes, names, and pronunciations that resemble some Greek and Hebrew letters", adding "'many other particulars equally difficult, such as a considerable piece of a new language and grammar, a new division of the year into twenty months, a new religion, &c. and all out of my own head". Taken up by a British military chaplain serving in the Low Countries he travelled to England, and within a year of his arrival had published the present history to great acclaim. "the book borrowed a little from Varenius's Descriptio regni Japoniae et Siam, and from the account of Formosa by the Dutch missionary George Candidius, but most of it was pure fiction, and its lurid descriptions of polygamy, human sacrifice, cannibalism and infanticide caused a sensation" (Howgego). His fraud was widely suspected from the outset, but Psalmanazar continued to exploit "his feigned origins" successfully for some years, but at around age thirty "apparently after reading William Law's Serious Call to the Devout and Holy Life" he turned over a new leaf becoming "pious and productive member of Grub Street" (ODNB). What is known of the actual facts of his life emerged from his posthumous Memoirs, published 1764. This copy with the ownership inscription of John Duke Coleridge, first Baron Coleridge, Lord Chief Justice, 1880-94, to the third front blank, and some pencilled notes in his hand at p.42 relating to the involvement of Mr. Innes, the chaplain , in Psalmanazar's imposture. Coleridge was also a noted bibliophile, he "had a great love and wide knowledge of English literature, especially of the poetry and drama of the Elizabethan period … William Butterfield designed an enormous and splendid library for him at his Devonshire seat, Heath's Court, Ottery St Mary, to contain 12,000 volumes, including a substantial collection of Elizabethan literature" (ODNB).

      SECOND EDITION OF A VERY RARE WORK by the celebrated Dutch anatomist and surgeon Govard Bidloo. Expanded from the first edition, this work is illustrated with sixteen handsome copper-engraved plates. The first edition of 1704 was illustrated with only seven. The Exercitationum is a "collection of ten anatomical and surgical essays by the celebrated Leyden anatomist. In the two essays on the nerves Bidloo maintains that the nerves do not contain fluid but are rather a mass of fibers. In the seventh essay, 'De oculo purulento' (p. 73-82), the treatment for hypopyon is described" (Bernard Becker Collection in Ophthalmology 49). Bidloo (1649-1713) is most famous for his rare and highly prized anatomical atlas, Anatomia humani corporis, which is very rarely on the market. "Bidloo, professor of anatomy at The Hague, was at one time physician to William of Orange. An English contemporary, William Cowper, furnished his Anatomy of humane bodies almost completely with engravings plagiarized from this book by Bidloo, who promptly and publicly excoriated Cowper in a published communication to the Royal Society. Before the days of copyright, this is one of the most famous instances of plagiarism in the history of medicine" (Heirs of Hippocrates 667, citing Anatomia corporis humana). Bound with Muys, Wijer Willem. Dissertatio et observationes de salis ammoniaci praeclaro ad febres intermittentes usu and De Gorter, Johannes. De perspiratione insensibli Sanctoriana-Batava tractatus experimentis propriis in Hollandia. CONDITION & DETAILS: Leiden: Jordanum Luchtmans. 4to. 7.75 by 6 inches. These works are technically quarto in size-and are catalogued as such in the collections in the major institutions, but the outer margins were trimmed pretty closely when bound.

      Nineteen folding engraved plates. Title printed in red & black. 2 p.l., 144, 137 pp., 1 leaf numbered "138" on recto, 139-211, [1] pp. Large 4to, cont. English panelled calf (very beautifully rebacked & recornered by Aquarius, minor dustiness), green morocco lettering piece on spine. London: S. Smith & B. Walford, 1704. First edition, and a fine, fresh copy, of one of the great classics in optics. "All previous philosophers and mathematicians had been sure that white light is pure and simple, regarding colours as modifications or qualifications of the white. Newton showed experimentally that the opposite is true: there are pure coloured rays which cannot be analysed by refraction, such as the green of the spectrum; just as there are coloured rays which can be analysed, such as the green formed by mixing blue and yellow light. Natural white light, far from being simple, is a compound of many pure elementary colours which can be separated and recompounded at will."-Printing & the Mind of Man 172. This book is distinguished in two other ways. First, it contains Newton's earliest mathematical papers in print, published here for the first time to assert his priority over Leibniz in the invention of the calculus. Second, it contains his set of sixteen "Queries" on the nature of matter which, in the 18th century, was considered to be the most important feature of the Opticks and had a profound influence on scientific thought.

        Opticks: Or, a treatise of the reflextions, refractions, inflextions and colours of light

      London: Sam. Smith and Benj. Walford, 1704. <p>Optics and Color Theory</p><p>Newton, Sir Isaac (1642-1727). Opticks. . . . 4to. [4], 144, 211, [1]pp. 19 engraved plates. London: printed for Sam. Smith, and Benjamin Walford, 1704. 247 x 191 mm. Paneled calf, gilt spine c. 1704, spine repaired, endpapers renewed (endpaper sheets watermarked with date 1802). Insignificant worming in gutter margin of last few leaves, but a fine, clean copy, preserved in a quarter morocco drop-back box. </p><p>First Edition of the most famous book on optics ever written in the English language; First Issue, without Newton&#39;s name on the title and with the two additional mathematical treatises. The Opticks expounds the corpuscular theory of light developed by Newton, which was the dominant theory until modern times when it was combined with the wave theory developed by Newton&#39;s contemporary Huygens. The Opticks also contains a full explanation for the rainbow, an explanation of "Newton&#39;s rings," and consideration of double refraction in Iceland spar. In color theory, the Opticks provides the starting point for modern concepts. Newton proved experimentally that all colors are contained in white light and devised the first organized color circle to show his concept of seven primary colors. The color circle, illustrated in fig. 11, pl. 3, Bk. 1, pt. 2, has been made use of in virtually all later treatises on color theory.</p><p>Unlike most of Newton&#39;s works, Opticks was originally published in English, with the Latin version following in 1706. As an appendix to the Opticks are two mathematical treatises in Latin which Newton issued in response to Leibniz relative to their dispute over priority in the invention of the calculus. These are Newton&#39;s first published works in mathematics. Boyer, The Rainbow (1959) 233-68. Birren, History of Color in Painting (1965) 21ff., 139. Horblit 79b. Dibner 148.

Armorial bookplate of John Manley, Esq. in Vol. II.</p><p>First Edition of the first English dictionary of arts and sciences, and the earliest modern encyclopedia of science. Harris was the first to make the distinction between "word-books" (dictionaries) and "subject-books (encyclopedias), and his <i>Lexicon Technicum </i>is the first English encyclopedia to be arranged in alphabetical order, as opposed to systematic order in the tradition of the medieval encyclopedist, Isidore of Seville. </p><p>A clergyman educated at Oxford, Harris took an early interest in science, and was elected to the Royal Society in 1696. As a result, he had access to many of the greatest scientific minds in England, and the <i>Lexicon technicum <i/>may be the first example of an encyclopedist relying directly on the consultation and help of experts or specialists, such as John Ray and Isaac Newton. In particular Harris relied heavily on the writings of Isaac Newton as a source, quoting lengthy excerpts from them under such headings as "Attraction," "Colour," "Fluxions," "Gravity," "Light," and "Motion." The introduction to Vol. II contains the first printing (in Latin and English) of Newton&#39;s "De natura acidorum," his only published work on chemistry; and the articles "Quadrature" and "Curves" give the first English translations of the "Two treatises" from Newton&#39;s Opticks. </p><p>The first edition of volume 2 was published together with the second edition of volume 1. Therefore sets of the first edition of both volumes of <i>Lexicon Technicum </i>are rare on the market. Babson Supplement, p. 55. Collison, p. 99.

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.

"Mit dem 'Probierstein' (Lapis lydius) zur Untersuchung fossiler Knochen, die aus seiner Hohenlohischen Heimat stammten, betrat Carl Neuland: als Paläontologe, der in den lapides figurati unzweifelhaft die Reste einer uralten Fauna und Flora erkannte und die herrschende Meinung, die Fossilien seien ein lusus naturae, mit Verachtung strafte, als Chemiker, der die Umwandlung des Animalischen ins Mineralische zu verstehen versuchte, als Alchimist, der den Zeitpfeil umkehrend die energia menstruorum neu zu erwecken und damit als frisch gebackener vitalistischer Arzt Stahlscher Prägung Elexire zu destillieren hoffte. Nicht zufällig wurde Dippel für sein (aus rezenten Knochen gewonnenes) Tieröl bekannt und auch Carl zeigte in der 'Chymischen Storgerey' (1733), daß er die Inspiration seiner Jugend nicht aufgegeben hatte: eine der fünf darin beschriebenen Panaceen ist die Panacea Animali" (Bernard Richter). - Durchgehend etwas gebräunt bzw. braunfleckig, sonst gut erhalten. - VD18 10861211; Ferchl 85; Ferguson I, 145 (Anm.); Brüning 3120; nicht bei Duveen, Neu und Bolton

        Dictionarium rusticum & urbanicum: or a dictionary of all sorts of country affairs, handicraft, trading, and merchandizing

      A. and J. Churchill, and John Taylor, London 1704 - First Edition. Calf. 8vo (200 × 130 mm), ff. 422; numerous wood engravings; some spotting, and dampstaining to edges of some leaves; very occasional ink notations, including 16 lines scored through, though still legible, on sig. E1v; very good in contemporary blind-stamped calf, sensitively re-backed with recent morocco lettering-piece. Reissue of the first edition of this very scarce early dictionary of rural arts and industry.The authorship of this work is disputed, although it is most often treated as the work of John Worlidge (fl. 1669-1698), who was one of the most significant writers on rural affairs in his day and practically the first to treat agriculture specifically as an industry. He ?is of interest in the history of agricultural literature as the compiler of the first systematic treatise on husbandry on a large and comprehensive scale. He was a correspondent of John Houghton, who gives in his "Letters" (1681) two contributions by "the ingenious Mr. John Worlidge of Petersfield in Hampshire," on "a great improvement of land by parsley," and on "improving and fyning of Syder."?Worlidge';s "Systema Agriculturæ, or the Mystery of Husbandry discovered . by J. W., Gent.," first published in 1669, went through a number of editions (1675, 1681, 1687, 1716) before it was supplanted in popular favour by the numerous agricultural reference books which are a feature of the eighteenth century . Worlidge';s system of husbandry may be regarded as gathering into focus the scattered information published during the period of the Commonwealth.'; (DNB, 63, p. 28)Besides the Systema agriculturæ, Worlidge wrote ?(mostly under the initials of "J. W., Gent.")'; the following: Vinetum Britannicum, or a treatise of cider (1676); Apiarium, or a discourse of bees (1676); Systema horticulturæ, or the art of gardening (1677); The most easie method of making the best cyder (1687); and The complete bee master (1698).The other principle contender for authorship is Nathan Bailey (d. 1742), the great philologist, lexicographer, and compiler of dictionaries. If Worlidge';s work stands at the beginning of the movement towards the production of comprehensive reference works in agriculture , as in other fields of art and industry, then Bailey is one of those systematisers to which Worlidge';s labours point the way. Among his many reference works, he published the Dictionarium domesticum in 1736, which is the closest of his known works to the present.The Dictionarium rusticum (the work offered here) represents an early attempt to provide a comprehensive dictionary of rural arts, trade and industry, and is a model for more famous works such as Society of Arts backed Museum rusticum et commerciale (1764) produced later in the century. It includes a wide range of articles on topics as diverse as keeping bees, cultivating fruit-trees, hunting, hawking fishing, the manufacture of gunpowder, wine-making, the distillation of liquor, and various technical articles on the trades and manufactures of the country.British Bee Books 71; ESTC T138448; Fussell, pp. 95-96; Kress 4047; Perkins 408; Schwerdt I, p. 50. COPAC records copies of the first edition (first issue) at Manchester, Warwick, and University of London - URLS. There appear to be no copies of this second issue in UK institutions.
