        EXCERPTA NONNULLA EX COMMENTARIO INEDITO R. AHARONIS BEN JOSEPH JUDAEI CARAITAE. VERSIONE LATINÂ & NOTULIS QUIBUSDAM ILLUSTRATA INQUE LUCEM ADITA À JOHANNE LUDOVICO FREY ... PRAEMITTITUR AD LECTOREM BREVIS DISSERTATIO DE AUTHORE EJUSQUE SCRIPTO. [BOUND WITH] CHORBAN BES HAMMIKDASCH. DE DEVASTATIONE HIEROSOLYMÆ ET TEMPLI SANCTISSIMI HISTORIA, A JUDÆIS IPSIS CONCINNATA, UNA CUM HISTORIA DEVASTATIONIS URBIS BETAR ET TUR MALCA, NUNC PRIMUM LATINE RECENSITA

      Johannis Heitmülleri. 1705; 1664. Later Wraps. 8vo. 28; [24] pages. 22 cm. First edition. In Latin and Hebrew. Two works bound together. “Excerpta nonnulla ex commentario inedito R. Aharonis en Joseph, Judæi Caraitæ” consists of selections from the Mibhar, a commentary on the Pentateuch in Hebrew with Latin translation and notes by Johann Ludwig Frey (1682-1759; Basel) , a Christian Hebraist. Aaron Ben Joseph, the Karaite was an ”eminent teacher, philosopher, physician, and liturgical poet in Constantinople; born in Sulchat, Crimea, about 1260; died about 1320. He took a prominent part in the regeneration of Karaism by the help of philosophical elements borrowed from Rabbinite literature …he wrote, in 1294, while following the profession of a physician in Constantinople, the work which established his fame and influence despite his Rabbinite proclivities. This work was the ‘Mib? Ar’ (The Choice) , a commentary on the Pentateuch, written in the terse, concise, and often obscure style and after the critical method of Ibn Ezra, and this became to the later generation of Karaite teachers a source of instruction in religious philosophy, in exegesis, and in practical theology, that is, the observance of the Law. … Aaron ben Joseph's ‘Mib? Ar’ (existing in Leyden, London, Paris, and elsewhere in manuscript) was published with a commentary by Joseph Solomon ben Moses Yerushalmi, at Koslov, in 1835.” (1906 Jewish Encyclopedia) . Bound with: “Chorban bes Hammikdasch = De devastatione Hierosolymae et templi sanctissimi historia” a short comprehensive description of Solomon’s Temple and its destruction, translated into Latin by the Christian Hebraist Johann Saubert (1638-88; Helmstädt) , originally written by “Jacob Judah Aryeh Leon Templo: Hakam, translator of the Psalms, and heraldic expert; of Marano descent; son of Abraham de Leon; born in 1603 at Hamburg, where he taught Talmud for several years; died after 1675. He became ? Akam in Middelburg and, after 1643, in Amsterdam, where he was engaged also as teacher in the Talmud Torah. He vocalized the entire Mishnah which was printed in 1646 at the establishment of Manasseh ben Israel. Jacob Judah caused a great stir by a plan, drawn by him, of Solomon's Temple, which was exhibited before Charles II. Of England and of which the author published a short, comprehensive description in Spanish entitled ‘Retrato del Templo de Selomoh’ (Middelburg, 1642) . This was translated into Dutch in the same year; into French in 1643; and by himself into Hebrew in 1650, with the title ‘Tabnit Hekal. ’ Duke August of Brunswick, and more particularly his wife Elizabeth, wished a German translation of this description and entrusted the task to Prof. Johann Saubert of Helmstädt. Some one else published such a translation in 1665, and Saubert therefore wrote a Latin translation in that year. An English version appeared in 1778, done by M. P. Decastro, a relative of Templo's, and in whose possession the plan was then held. ” (1906 Jewish Encyclopedia) . Not identical to the 1665 De Templo Hierosolymitano, and possibly an earlier variant. Both items very scarce. Subjects: Bible. O. T. Pentateuch - Commentaries. Aaron ben Joseph, the Karaite. Jacob Judah Aryeh Leon Templo. OCLC lists 7 copies (of Excerpta Nonulla) ; 9 copies (Chorban Bes Hammikdasch) . Pages lightly soiled and lightly foxed, overall very fresh and clean. Very good + condition. (KH-1-34) .

        Philosophical Principles of Natural Religion: Containing the Elements of Natural Philosophy, And the Proofs for Natural Religion, Arising from them

      London: Printed for George Strahan..., 1705. FIRST EDITION. 8vo, 195 x 113 mms., pp. [xxxii], 118 [119 -120 blank], 282, 68, contemporary calf; joints, corners, and spine restored; no leaves before title-page, text stained and fingered, lacks final leaf of errata, a rather modest copy. Cheyne uses the principles of Newton to argue for the existence of a non-mechanistic deity. He maintains that since gravity cannot be explained by any hypothesis or physical principle, it must not be innate and depends on a deity for its existence. The work attracted little notice, but Cheyne published revised and expanded versions in 1715, 1724, and 1736. In recent years, he seems to have attracted more interest from scholars and historians of ideas than he enjoyed in his lifetime

        Le Canada, ou Nouvelle France, la Floride, la Virginie, Pensilvania, Caroline, Nouvelle Angleterre et Nouvelle Yorck, l'Isle de Terre Neuve, la Louisiane et le Cours de la Riviere de Misisipi (sic).

      Paris: 1705 - A very nice copy of this map of the east coast of the United States from the Caribbean up to Newfoundland, with the western border just beyond the Mississippi. From De Fer's "Atlas Curieux". This includes the accompanying sheet of text, which describes Canada, Louisiana, Florida, New England, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Carolina. The course of the Mississippi is virtually due North, originating in Texas and extending into Canada. The many rivers which feed the Mississippi are described and often annoted, most notably the Ohio ou Bell Riviere, which starts far south of its true origins and the Oubache River. The extent of Canada ou Nouvelle France is extended far to the south and the size of the English Colonies subsantially reduced, undoubtedly a political statement. Notes on early explorations, forts, rivers and Indian Tribes abound in this marvelous work. References: McCorckle 702.2. Copper engraved map, engraved by Van Loon, black & white as issued, 13 1/2 x 8 1/2". With the descriptive text sheet. Very good condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Von den Spanischen Pocken oder Frantzosen-Kranckheit und derselben Cur. Alles auf Cartesii Lehr-Sätze gegründet. Aus dem Holländischen übersetzet.

      4°. (20 Bl.), 788 S., (6 Bl.). Lederband der Zeit mit handschriftlichem Rückenschild. Erste deutsche Ausgabe. - Lindeboom, Dutch Medical Biography 1488/89; Hirsch/H. IV, 464; nicht bei Blake und Waller. - Die posthum erschienenen medizinisch-chirurgischen Schriften des holländischen Mediziners H. Overkamp (1651-1693). Mit einem umfangreichen Kapitel über "Speiß und Tranck", u. a. die Erörterung der Frage , warum Tabak den Hunger stillt. Für die Geschichte der venerischen Krankheiten ist das letzte Kapitel des Buches von Interesse, in dem Overkamp zwei verschiedene Methoden zur Heilung der Syphilis empfiehlt. "Die erste dauert sechs Monate lang und ist eine Schwitzkur, während welcher immer sieben Tage hindurch ein Decoct oder das Extract vom Guajakholz, und am achten Tage sechs Pillen mit 10 Gran von weissem Quecksilberpräcipitat verabfolgt werden. Die andere Methode besteht in einer Salivationskur... Man sieht: Overkamp war gar nicht weit von der heutigen 'Methode des traitements successifs' Fournier's entfernt" (Proksch, Die Geschichte der venerischen Krankheiten I, 294). Der Verfasser - ein überzeugter Anhänger Descartes' - promovierte 1677 zum Dr. med. in Leiden, ließ sich in Harlingen nieder, doch scheint er 1683 nach Amsterdam übergesiedelt zu sein, wo er bis zu seinem Tode als praktischer Arzt wirksam war. - Sehr schönes, sauberes Exemplar.

        Pars Inferior Principatus Languedoci, Provinciae Delphinatus, tractus Lugdunensis, Aquitaniae, et Vasconiae

      Amsterdam: Petrus Schenk, 1705. unbound. very good(+). Map. Engraving with original hand outline. Map measures 18 7/8" x 23", page measures 21" x 24.25". Beautiful map of southern France in high detail. Shows the coastline from Narbonne to the Italian border in the south, and Lyon in the north. Minor aging along edges. Petrus Schenk (c.1660%u20131711) was a German engraver and cartographer. He began his training in Amsterdam in the art of mezzotint and soon began working closely with Gerard Valck. The two took advantage of the bustling cartographic trade in the city and quickly expanded their business from portraits and prints into maps and globes. In 1700, Schenk grew the business further by moving to Leipzig, Germany and opening a shop. As his sons and grandson returned to the Netherlands to become active engravers as well, the Schenk firm developed into one of the best-known publishing houses in 18th-century Amsterdam. This map attests to Schenk's prolific production and skill in both cartographic artistry and business.

        A Tale of a Tub

      London: John Nutt, 1705. "The Fourth Edition Corrected". Apparently there is very little difference between the early editions of this book; this title page is exactly like that of the first, but for the above-quoted line. Rebound, probably in the late 19th century, rebacked with boards that may be original, but the binder has added blind-stamped devices to match his devices on the spine. The spine is blind-stamped; the only gilt is '1705' at the bottom. A good plus copy overall. The boards once had gilt edges but it has mostly worn off, and the corners are worn down to the cardboard. The newer spine is still nice with just some rubbing at the ends. Hinges have weakened (endpapers show splits) but are still holding well. Internally, there are marginal water stains up to p. 15 of the Preface; the first original leaf is the title page, which is moderately foxed, as the next 2 pages; foxing and darkening of the text block comes and goes throughout the text. Many pages are quite bright; pp. 113-144 and 305-320 have the most darkening. Text consists of title page, Dedication, The Bookseller to the Reader, the Epistle Dedicatory to His Royal Highness Prince Posterity, the Preface, 'A Tale of a Tub' pp. 33-221, 'A Full and True Account of the Battel Fought Last Friday, between the Antient and the Modern Books in St. James's Library' pp. 223-278, and 'A Discourse Concerning the Mechanical Operation of the Spirit. In a Letter to a Friend. A Fragment' pp. 279-322. This is the last original page, followed by the binder's buff endpapers. Please email for further details or pictures. . Hard Cover.

From the NCBI website: Matthaus Gottfried Purmann (1649-1711), born in Lublin, living 26 years in Wroclaw contributed considerably to the development of the German surgery. Purmann was a surgeon who established his position in the history of medicine not thanks to introducing of new surgical methods but mainly thanks to improving and describing of the surgical techniques used. He successfully performed complicated surgical operations i.e. Caesarean section, trepanation, tracheotomy, aneurysm resection. He was the author of several studies in the field of surgery. Since the editions of his works were limited they are a rarity now. Matthaus Gottfried Purmann achieved good results in the field of war surgery. His attempts to give people transfusion of animal blood turned out to be unfortunate. In war surgery he tried to give bleeding soldiers transfusion of animal blood; all unsuccessful tries finally convinced him that Michael Ettmuller (1644-1683), a German physician, was right when he proved in 1682 that blood transfusion is dangerous to life because of special differences between animal and human blood. /// One of the plates in this volume is of a man getting a blood transfusion from a live sheep. Purmann is one of the first surgeons to experiment with blood transfusion.

An influential treatise on muscular dissection, based on six lectures which may have been delivered in the Surgeon's Hall. It is illustrated by a superb collection of plates, many of them full page. The work was first published in 1681 as 'A Compleat Treatise of the Muscles' and the second enlarged edition in 1698. ESTC records only one copy of this 1705 reprint in a British library (Cambridge) and one in the USA. It is stated that the description of the muscles is based on Muskotomia by Willaim Molins (1648) and the plates partly taken from Tabula Anatomica by Giulio Casserio (1632 edition). John Browne (1642-1702/3?) came from Norwich and gained surgical experience in London and in the navy, being wounded in the Anglo-Dutch war of 1665-67. About 1675 he was appointed surgeon-in-ordinary to Charles II and surgeon at St Thomas's Hospital in 1683. He published other works on medicine, including the first recorded description of cirrhosis of the liver (1685) and the best surviving account of touching for the king's evil (1684).

These efforts reached fruition between 1020 and 1025 in the twenty-volume Decretum of Burchard, Bishop of Worms. The next great step was taken in 1151 with Gratian's Concordia Discordantium Canonum or Decretum Gratiani, a watershed compilation that superseded earlier collections. The Libre Quinque Decretalium of Gregory IX followed in 1234. Published in 1298, the Liber Sextus of Boniface VIII was the last great collection of the pre-Reformation era. John XXII added the final official collection, the Liber Septimus Decretalium, better known as the "Constitutiones Clementis V" or simply "Clementinae" (1317). Three more texts were added later: the Extravagantes of John XXII (1325), the Extravagantes Communes of other popes to 1484 and the Appendix Pauli Lancellotti (1563). The texts in this volume are drawn from the Correctores Romani (1580-1582), an edition commissioned by the Council of Trent. It remained the only authenticated collection of material

      [Hartford, Ct.? 1705?].. Broadside, 15 x 12 inches. Folio. Old fold lines. Light wear and soiling; a few areas of minor loss, not affecting legibility. Very good. Manuscript copy of the agreement between the Connecticut towns of New London and Groton, agreed upon at a general assembly in Hartford, establishing Groton as an independent town. The east bank of the Thames River thus became Groton, while the west bank remained New London. The agreement to incorporate Groton as a separate town included continued use of the ferry and free school for inhabitants on both sides of the river; acknowledgement that citizens of the new town would agree to pay their part of the town debt previously incurred; and the continued maintenance of various ministries and free schools as indicated. It is signed: "A True Copy, Eleazar Kimberly Secry. Extracted from Groton Records & Compared Samll. Avery, Recorder."

        Notes on a Course of Lectures in Canon Law

      1705. [Manuscript]. Bourcier, Louis. [Notes on a Course of Lectures in Canon Law]. Pont-a-Mousson, 1705. 244 ff. Text in Latin. Quarto (7-3/4" x 6"). Contemporary calf, gilt spine with raised bands, speckled edges. Light rubbing to boards, moderate rubbing to extremities with some chipping to spine ends, corners bumped. "Scripsit/ Ludovicus Bourcier/ Pontimussi/ 1705" to front free endpaper. Text in small, neat hand to both sides of most leaves. Stains to a few leaves, interior otherwise fresh. * With index. This appears to be a fair copy based on a set of lectures at the University of Pont-a-Mousson, later Nancy, a Jesuit-run school supported by the Duke of Lorraine with a distinguished law school. It covers the principal topics of canon law (in the context of the local legal systems). Inherently interesting, this item is also worthy of careful study due to its potential to offer insights into the long-standing tensions between the Church and the French Crown.

        [The World and Continents - Five Maps]

      Amsterdam: [circa 1705]. Copper-engraved maps, with original outline colour, in very good condition. 21 1/4 x 25 1/4 inches. A superb set of maps the World and Continents by the eminent Dutch cartographer Allard's World map, Planisphærium Terrestre, sive Terrarum Orbis, represents a dramatic departure from the classical Dutch tradition and prefigures and influences the great age of Enlightenment cartography that flourished in Germany and the Netherlands. In the place of the conventional allegorical personifications, he surrounds his double hemispheres with twelve additional spheres, each depicting an aspect of the Earth purely as an object of scientific inquiry. Recentissima Novi Orbis Sive Americae Septentrionalis et Meridionalis Tabula is Allard's very handsome map of North and South America. Benefiting from late 17th century French maps of the two continents, it shows all five Great Lakes and a well-delineated Mississippi River. An inset in the lower-left corner depicts what was then known of New Zealand. The cartouche is especially attractive, inhabited by exotic animals and scenes relating to mankind's eternal search for gold. Accuratissima Europae Tabula, Multis locis correcta, et Nuperimè edita is Allard's highly detailed map of Europe. The map of Africa, Novissima et Perfectissima Africae Tabula, is beautifully coloured and features a black cherub riding a lion, while a regal woman, personifying Africa, beholds the scene. Exactissima Asiae Delineatio is partially based on the large-scale maps of northeastern Europe prepared by D. Nicolai Witsen (1641-1717), the Burgomaster of Amsterdam. It is thought that he was privy to maps of Siberia, which were the result of surveys commissioned by Peter the Great. Koeman, Atlantes Neelandici, Al.1, Al.4, Al.10, Al.30, & Al.73

        The Natural History of Oxford-shire, Being an Essay towards the Natural History of England,

      Second Edition with large Additions and Corrections,: Also a short Account of the Author, etc., [xi], 366, [ix] - index, [i],with 16 fine copper-engraved plates at pages 16, 93, 101, 106, 112, 127, 130, 143, 149, 215, 243, 245, 277, 279, 335, and 364. Large folio, contemporary panelled calf, hinges cracked but firm, no label, with the engraved armorial bookplate of the one-time Prime Minister The Earl of Rosebery, Oxford, Lichfield, 1705. Without the engraved map [as often], otherwise a very fine, clean and bright copy. * FURTHER PHOTOGRAPHS SENT ON REQUEST * Robert Plot (1640 -1696) English naturalist, first Professor of Chemistry at the University of Oxford, Plot entered Magdalen Hall, Oxford in 1658 where he graduated with a BA in 1661 and a MA in 1664. Plot subsequently taught and served as dean and vice principal at Magdalen Hall while preparing for his BCL and DCL, which he received in 1671 before moving to University College in 1676. By this time, Plot had already developed an interest in the systematic study of natural history and antiquities. In June of 1674, with patronage from John Fell, the bishop of Oxford, and Ralph Bathhurst, vice-chancellor of the university, Plot began studying and collecting artifacts throughout the nearby countryside, publishing his findings three years later in The Natural History of Oxford-shire. In this work, he described and illustrated various rocks, minerals and fossils, including the first known illustration of a dinosaur bone which he attributed to a giant (later recognized as the femur of a Megalosaurus), but believed that most fossils were not remains of living organisms but rather crystallizations of mineral salts with a coincidental zoological form. The favourable reception of his findings not only earned him the nickname of the "learned Dr. Plot," but also led to his election into the Royal Society of London on 6 December 1677, where he served as the society's secretary and joint editor of the Philosophical Transactions (144-178) from 1682 through 1684. Another implication of his success was his appointment as the first keeper of the newly established Ashmolean Museum in 1683, as well as his simultaneous appointment as the first professor of chemistry in the new well-equipped laboratory housed within the museum. - Wikipedia

Antonio (Antoine) Pagi, French ecclesiastical historian 1624-99. He studied with the Aix Jesuits then entered the monastery of the Conventual Franciscans Arles. He devoted his spare time to the study of history. Discerning numerous chronological errors and misstatements of fact in the "Annales Ecclesiastici" of Baronius he made it his life-work to correct them and otherwise elucidate the valuable work. Pagi's first volume was printed during his lifetime (Paris 1689); the remaining three volumes, reaching until 1198, the last year in the work of Baronius, were completed in manuscript shortly before his death. The whole work was edited in four volumes by his nephew Francisci / François Pagi and first published in 1705. Mansi embodied it in his edition of the "Annales" of Baronius (1736-59). "Critica" manifests great care historical knowledge but is not entirely free from error. His other works are: "Dissertatio Hypatica Seu De Consulibus Xsareis" (Lyons, 1682) printed also in "Apparatus in Annales Ecclesiasticos" (Lucca, 1740) "Dissertatio De Die Et Anno Mortis S.

        Othello

      London: Printed for R. Wellington, 1705 Seventh and final quarto edition. Lightly browned with some spotting and marginal dampstaining, small stain to title affecting advertisement at foot. Modern speckled tan three-quarter calf and marbled boards, gold-stamped red morocco spine label. Housed in a brown cloth folding box. Quartos represent the earliest and rarest printed material offered by William Shakespeare. Seldomly surviving the 17th century, they were sold unbound and usually used for the stage by actors. Othello was first published in quarto format in 1622 and was then included in the First Folio edition of collected plays. It is one of Shakespeare's most popular tragedies, conveying important lessons about love, war, and racism. The ambiguity of Othello's race is one of the most intriguing and enduring aspects of the play. Although generally described to be dark-skinned, it is unknown whether he is African, Arab, or a dark-skinned European. Othello experiences discrimination while serving as a soldier in Europe, but his devoted wife Desdemona sees him only for his merits. Othello is timeless, warning us of the perils of self-isolation and the necessity of unconditional love.. Hard Cover. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

        The Chronology of Ancient Kingdoms Amended

      London: Tonson Osborn and Longman. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, complete with three folding engraved plates of the Temple of Solomon. "In his old age, Newton turned again to the theological interests that had burned with consuming intensity during the years of his early manhood... In the years 1705-1710, he returned to theology with renewed vigor, and for all his editions of the Principia and Opticks, theology was the primary occupation of his old age... Newton's conclusions in theology had been as radical as his conclusions in natural philosophy. So far they had seen the light of day only within a limited circle of trusted confidants... "Newton had been at work revising his interpretation of the prophesies and other theological works for about ten years when Caroline, princess of Wales, heard about his new principles of chronology in 1716. Interested, she summoned Newton and asked for a copy of what he had written. Newton never lightly surrendered one of his compositions. He had even less desire to hand over to the princess of Wales a treatise which might still have contained assertions heretical enough to secure his instant dismissal from the Mint. Well schooled as he was in the art of delay, he pleaded that the work was 'imperfect and confus'd,' but he knew very well that one did not dally with a royal command. In haste he drew up an 'Abstract' of his chronology, what was later called the 'Short Chronology,' which put the work into 'that shape the preperest for her Perusal...,' and delivered it to the princess in a few days. By themselves, cut off from the 'Origines' which was their source, there was nothing very novel in the ideas the 'Abstract' presented and nothing to excite odium. By disguising radical theology as chronology, Newton had made it safe enough even for royal consumption. "Newton had not heard the last of the 'Abstract,' however. A copy made its way to France where a translation, entitled Abrege de la chronologie, was published in 1724, together with a refutation composed by Nicholas Freret of the Academie des Inscriptions et Belles-lettres. Nor were the Abrege and the 'Remarks' the end of the business. Father Etienne Souciet, another expert on ancient chronology, published five dissertations against Newton's system of dates. Initially Newton, who was now an old man, undertook to ignore the attacks in order to avoid another controversy. Eventually he changed his mind and decided that he must defend himself by bringing his full treatise on chronology out. He was at work revising it when he died. We should not from that conclude that the work was unfinished. Endless revision, however minute the alterations, was Newton's fate. Conduitt published the full volume, The Chronology of Ancient Kingdoms Amended, in 1728, the year after Newton's death." (Richard Westfall, The Life of Isaac Newton). London: Tonson, Osborn, and Longman, 1728. Quarto, early full calf gilt rebacked with original spine laid down. Light wear to binding. A FINE COPY, with extraordinarily large margins.

El autor (Zaragoza, h. 1646 - id., h. 1705), ilustre historiador aragonés, buen escritor, poeta, conocedor de las matemáticas, dedicado a servir varios puestos oficiales de Aragón, como la Secretaría del reino, secretaría del brazo de la Iglesia en las Cortes de 1684. Diputado del Reino por las Cortes en 1689; fue también consejero real en el Supremo de Aragón y cronista del reino desde 1701, ya que el arcediano Domer que desempeñaba tal cargo, no podía atenderlo dadas sus muchas ocupaciones.

Otras obras suyas de historia citables son: el Prólogo a los Anales de Aragón de Dormer (Zaragoza, 1691, en folio); la Vida del Emperador Carlos V, en verso castellano; un Nobiliario del reino de Aragón, obra inédita con datos curiosos sobre familias ilustres genovesas afincadas en Andalucía y por supuesto los numerosos Apuntamientos preparados para la redacción de sus Anales que recogió su hermano, el fraile agustino Diego Panzano. También escribió muchas poesías en su mayor parte inéditas, en parte salvadas por su hermano. Una Aritmética también obra inédita; y unas Observaciones sobre los más célebres filósofos morales.
