MERCHANTS-PETITIONERS AND TRUSTEES FOR THE FACTORY AT LEGHORN]
London: printed in the year MDCCIV 1704 - folio, (12) + xv + (1) + 159 + (1)pp., including the additional title page: An humble apology to the Queen, on behalf of the merchants-petitioners .>, bound in contemporary patterned pink boards with an overall design of foliage and flowers with animals, birds and hunters, spine very worn, all edges gilt. A fine, crisp, copy. First edition. This seems to be a complex case of malpractice and commercial double-dealing in the important English business community at Leghorn (now Livorno) in Tuscany. The case evidently involved John Pollexfen (1636-1715), the rich English merchant and political economist who was an original member of the Board of Trade (from 1696-1707), and the lawyer Sir John Cooke (1666-1710), the Advocate-General. The other players were Sir Alexander Rigby, whose trading company, Sir Alexander Rigby & Co, had been established at Leghorn in 1690, but who by 1716 was declared a bankrupt having been imprisoned for debt. The Grand Duke of Tuscany was Cosimo III de Medici (1642-1723). Among the clutch of related papers, including petitions, statements of case, letters, affidavits and so forth, stand out John Pollexfen's judgments included here in the papers. They consider the legal complexities of such matters as joint copartnerships, breaches of promise, consequential damages, loss of business, civil and commercial rights, contractual obligations and international law.

It is also known as the Aylesbury election case. "Ashby, a burgess of Aylesbury, sued the Returning Officer for maliciosly refusing his vote. Three judges of the King's Bench decided, against the opinion of Chief Justice Holt, that the verdict which a jury had given in favour of Ashby must be set aside, as the action was not maintainable. The plaintiff went to the house of Lords upon a writ of error, and there the judgement was reversed by a large majority of Peers." - A Popular History of England by Charles Knight Condition: Disbound.

Gerard MERCATOR (Kremer) (1512 - 1594)
La Geographia di Claudio Tolomeo curata da Gerard Mercator, è pubblicata per la prima volta nel 1578 a Colonia da Gottfried van Kempen. Successivamente, alla morte del Mercator, ci furono delle ristampe delle carte contenute nelle pubblicazioni di Jodoco Hondius e Petrus Bertius (1605 & 1619). La lastra viene utilizzata, molto dopo in realtà, per l'edizione della Geographia di François Alma, stampata tra Utrecht, Amsterdam e Leida nel 1695, 1698, 1704 (2 tirature) e 1730. Al centro del foglio manca invece il ricco cartiglio con le allegorie dell'astronomia e della geografia, qui sostituito da uno più piccolo di forma ovale, decorato con foglie d'acanto. La Scizia corrisponde all'area euro-asiatica che in antichità, tra l'VIII secolo a.C. e il II secolo d.C., fu abitata dalla popolazione degli Sciti. La sua posizione e la sua estensione variarono nel corso della Storia ma di solito l'area indicata dagli autori classici come Scizia include Kazakistan, Russia meridionale e Ucraina orientale e 'area del Caucaso settentrionale, incluso l'Azerbaijan, e la Georgia. Published for the first time in 1578 in the Geographia by Mercator, this plate was late included in all the editions of Ptolemy/Mercator published in Utrecht, Amsterdam and Leyden untile 1740. This example comes from the Amsterdam edition of 1704. Copperplate, some foxing, otherwise good conditions. Scythia was a multinational region of Central Eurasia in the classical era, encompassing parts of Ukrainian Steppe, Central Asia, Eastern Europe and the northern Caucasus.

Armorial bookplate of John Manley, Esq. in Vol. II.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 Lexicon Technicum 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. 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 Lexicon technicum 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," "Fluxio … [Click Below for Full Description]

De la Créquiniere, who spent a number of years in India, proposes early Hebrew and East Indian civilizations share major religious origins. To key modern scholars, Conformité “is an important work in the genesis of historical ethnology…. As the title implies, the focus is mostly on the comparison between the East Indians and the Jews, but a number of references to the ancient Romans are also made…. As Joel Reed rightly argues….

Manuscript note on fly leaf: a premium awarded to Miss Eliza Dudley for her studiousness and good behaviour in School by the Sabbath School Society, Brighton, Dec. 16th, 1827. Engraved frontispiece by Frederick Hendrik van Hove. Published two years after the king's death, "The Life and Memorable Actions of King William III" is a panegyric biography of William III (1650 -1702), sovereign Prince of Orange from birth, Stadtholder of Holland, Zeeland, Utrecht, Gelderland, and Overijssel in the Dutch Republic from 1672, and King of England, Ireland, and Scotland from 1689 until his death. A Protestant, William participated in several wars against the powerful Catholic king of France, Louis XIV, in coalition with Protestant and Catholic powers in Europe. Many Protestants heralded him as a champion of their faith. In 1685, his Catholic father-in-law, James, Duke of York, became king of England, Ireland and Scotland. James's reign was unpopular with the Protestant majority in Britain. William, supported by a group of influential British political and religious leaders, invaded England in what became known as the "Glorious Revolution." Manuscript note on fly leaf age-toned and partly water-stained at lower margin. Lower corner of frontispiece slightly chipped (not affecting text or image).

El ejemplar presenta la portada facsimilada y una encuadernación en pergamino en tipo cartera con cierres de lacería, típica de los juristas de la época. Se trata de un auténtico tesoro de la bibliografía foral vizcaína.
