Part of a Fourth Letter for Toleration. V. Memoires Relating to the Life of Anthony first Earl of Shaftsbury. To which is added, VI. His New Method of a Common-Place-Book, written originally in French, and now translated into English.

      London, Printed for W.B. and J. Churchill, 1706. 8vo. Nice contemporary brown full calf, very neatly rebacked. Title-page and second leaf strengthened at fore-margin. A bit of brownspotting to last quire, otherwise very nice. (4), 336 pp.. First edition of this influential collection of Locke's posthumous works, in which we find the first printing of his highly important "On the Conduct of Understanding" (takes up the larger part of the volume, namely pp. (1) - 137), which he himself considered of the utmost importance. He had actually intended it to be the final and largest chapter of his "Essay", his seminal magnum opus which constitutes "the first modern attempt to analyze [human knowledge]" (PMM 164), but he did not completely finish it before his death (1704) and it thus didn't make it into the fourth edition of the "Essay", where Locke had planned to make it the greatest part and the concluding chapter. "In 1697, Locke had written to Molyneux: "I have lately got a little leisure to think of some additions to my book [the Essay], against the next edition, and within these few days have fallen upon a subject that I know not how far it will lead me. I have written several pages on it, but the matter, the farther I go, opens the more upon me, and I cannot yet get sight of any end of it. The title of the chapter will be Of the Conduct of the Understanding, which, if I shall pursue, as far as I imagine it will reach, and as it deserves, will, I conclude, make the largest chapter of my Essay." [Locke #847, vol. 6:87] The new chapter was intended as a new final chapter to be added to the 4th edition (1700) [Locke #231], but Locke did not complete it. It was published in 1706 by King and Collins and has often been reprinted, independently, with other works by Locke or with Bacon's Essays." (Attig, Locke Bibliography, Pennsylvania State University).Before his death, Locke had left instructions for his literary executors, Anthony Collins and Peter King. These instructions mentioned four works which did not see publication in his life-time, but which he felt deserved publication, among these were "On the Conduct of the understanding," "Seeing all things in God," and "A Discourse on Miracles", which were all published for the first time in the present collection of "Posthumous Works". As will be seen from the title-page, the collection also contained the unfinished "Fourth letter for toleration", some notes for a biography of the first Earl of Shaftesbury, and an English translation of "Méthode nouvelle de dresser un recueil". All these posthumous works were included in the collected edition of Locke's "Works" from 1714 as well as in all subsequent editions. The work of the greatest consequence included in this collection is no doubt "Of the Conduct of Understanding" which takes up more than a third of the volume. It became one of Locke's most read and popular works; during the 18th century alone, it was printed no less than 8 times and is now, as it were, considered a most important part of Locke's writings and an essential part of all collections of Locke's works. It was first published separately in 1754

Add. engr. t.-p., [34], 903, [65 (index; 1 final f. blank)] pp.. 1706 Gellius's Attic Nights, supposed to have been written for the entertainment and education of his children, offers a rich tapestry of the life and times of the Roman Empire under the five good emperors.

Brunet calls the present example the "Édition la meilleure qui ait paru jusqu'ici" of the Attic Nights. Originally edited by Joannes Fredericus Gronovius and then polished by his son Jacobus Gronovius, this version also includes notes and commentary by Kaspar Schoppe, Peter Lambeck, Louis Carrion, Antoine Thysius, and Jacobus Oiselius. The additional engraved title-page, done by P. Sluyter after a design by J. Groere, depicts the author at work on a moonlit night, and is decorated with medallions of Athena and her owl; the title-page is printed in red and black, with an engraved vignette of an Attic city. Binding: Prize binding (without certificate) of contemporary vellum, covers framed and panelled in double blind fillets with gilt-stamped corner fleurons, gilt-stamped medallion on each cover showing a scimitar-wielding knight bearing two crossed keys on his shield, supported by monkeys and surmounted by lounging figures grasping snakes.

      à Paris: Chez Pierre Ribou, 1706. Fine. Chez Pierre Ribou, à Paris 1706, Pet. in-8 (9,5x16cm), relié. - first edition, rare, illustrated with a frontispiece by Dulin. Bound in full morocco old vintage red. Back to Jansenist nerves with gilded caissons. gilt. Mentoring net on the boards. Beautiful copy. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, rare, illustrée d'un frontispice par Dulin. Reliure en plein maroquin vieux rouge d'époque. Dos à nerfs janséniste à caissons dorés. titre doré. Filet d'encadrement sur les plats. Bel exemplaire. Preque oublié de nos jours, Antoine Danchet subsiste cependant comme un bon librettiste dont les oeuvres furent mises en musique par Campra et Lully. Ses tragédies sont décrites comme de pâles imitations de Racine. Elles sont par ailleurs intéressantes en ce sens, car elles ne sont nullement des imitations du grand Racine, mais témoignent du goût dominant de l'époque. Il fut cependant élu à l'Académie Française en 1712. Ex-libris Bernard Jean.

        VOYAGES DU BARON DE LA HONTAN DANS L'AMERIQUE SEPTENTRIONALE.[with:] MEMOIRES DE L'AMERIQUE SEPTENTRIONALE, OU LA SUITE DES VOYAGES. SECONDE EDITION, REVUE, CORRIGÉ, & AUGMENTÉE.

      The Hague: Charles Delo, 1706. - Two volumes. [18],376; [2],5-336,[2]pp. plus twenty-seven plates (most folding, and including one large folding map, "Carte Que Les Gnacsitares.Carte de la Riviere Longue."). 12mo. Contemporary speckled calf, neatly rebacked, spine gilt, leather labels. Minor edge wear. Bookplate on each pastedown, light occasional foxing, large folding map bound upside down. Very good. Second edition of Lahontan's narrative, a curious blending of fact and fantasy. His account of his travels in the Great Lakes region is one of the most important travel narratives of the day, but his claims to have journeyed west of the Mississippi are highly doubtful. However, his assertions had great impact on geographers of the time, who adopted much of his imaginary geography. The most notable map is the "Carte Que Les Gnacsitares.Carte de la Riviere Longue." depicting an imaginary river extending westward from Lake Superior. The "Carte Generale de Canada," the frontispiece in volume two, is also considerably confused geographically. Volume two also contains the "Dictionaire de la Langue des Sauvages." The work remains a classic voyage, even if partially imaginary, written by a man "of more than ordinary learning and intelligence" - Sabin. Regarding this edition, Sabin writes "[t]he alteration is mainly in the 'Dialogues' which are rewritten; the voyages to Portugal and Denmark are omitted, and the whole work is thus brought into two volumes." "Although much of the work has been condemned as over- imaginative, it did influence the subsequent growth of primitivism in France and England, as reflected in the works of Montesquieu, Voltaire, Jonathan Swift, and others. For example, he tells of a tribe which he calls Essanapes, who worshiped the sun, the moon, and the stars. Beyond the Essanapes lived the Gnascitares, who lived on the shore of a great lake, and upon this lake were canoes rowed by 200 oarsmen. They had buildings three storeys high and fought battles with the Spaniards in New Mexico. The great king of this country lived in a royal palace waited upon by hundreds of servants. To add weight to this account Lahontan actually drew a map of the region, now located within the boundaries of Nebraska and South Dakota" - Howgego. HOWES L25, "aa." SABIN 38641, 38642.

        De jure naturae et gentium libri octo, cum Annotatis Joannis Nicolai Hertii. Editio nova, a mendis diligentissime repurgata.

      Frankfurt am Main, Sumptibus Friderici Knochii & Filii, typis Dieterici Caesaris Mulleri, 1706.. Gr.-8vo. Kupferportrait von Pufendorf, Titelblatt mit Vignette in Rot-Schwarz-Druck, 10 Bll., 1 gefaltetes Bl., 1296 S., 6 Bll. (Index Rerum). Neuer, repräsentativer Ganzlederband.. Epochales Werk (3. deutsche Ausgabe?) zum naturrechtlichen System einer Privatrechtsordnung! - Pufendorf (1632-1694) ist neben Christian Thomasius der berühmteste Vertreter des Naturrechts. Zudem hat Pufendorf wie kein anderer auf die Entwicklungen des Staats- und Völkerrechts Einfluß genommen. Die Naturrechtsordnung von Pufendorf nahm breiten Einfluß auf die geistigen Strömungen seiner Zeit, das Werk hatte gesamteuropäische Wirkung. Übersetzungen ins Englische, Französische und Russische waren die Folge und zeigen die epochale Bedeutung dieses Werkes. Vor allem im Ausland wurde Pufendorf rezipiert, so von John Locke und Jean Jacques Rousseau. Sein Einfluß auf die Menschenrechtserklärung in den USA ist bedeutend. Bis zum Jahre 1684 blieb Pufendorf in Schweden, konnte auf eine außerordentlich erfolgreiche Lehrtätigkeit an der Universität Lund zurückblicken und wurde schließlich von König Karl IX. zum schwedischen Hofhistoriographen ernannt. Ab dem Jahre 1684, nunmehr erschien erstmals das berühmte Werk in Deutschland, versuchte Pufendorf in Berlin Fuß zu fassen. Dies gelang ihm endlich aufgrund des des Wunsches des Großen Kurfürsten. Versuche, ihn für die neugegründete preußische Universität in Halle zu gewinnen, schlugen jedoch fehl. Pufendorf blieb in Berlin und starb dort am 26. Oktober 1694.

Mascitti became a figurehead of Italian instrumental music in France and was regarded as the peer of Corelli and Albinoni. Possessing the advantage over his fellow-nationals of residence in Paris, where all nine of his published collections were first issued between 1704 and 1738, Mascitti enjoyed enormous popularity with the French public, to whom he was affectionately known by his first name Michele in various gallicized forms...

Except for Eitner, who quotes the title of the present edition (from the Dresden copy), these references are probably to a later edition, only known from advertisements and catalogues, published by Estienne Roger and Michel- Charles Le Cène, Amsterdam, in ca. 1715; see Rudolf Rasch: The Music Publishing House of Estienne Roger and Michel-Charles Le Cène 1696-1743 (= My Work on the Internet, Volume Four), The Catalogue Maasmann- Musicien.

[junto a:] Notae in Jacobi Gaffarelli curiositates.

      1706-1676. . 1706 - Impreso por Benjamin Schiller/Godfried Schultz (apud Gothofredum Schultzen). Hamburgo, Alemania. . 1 Vol. . Frontispicio+portada+62 H.+290 pp.+9 H.+498 pp.+25 H. Octavo. Pergamino de época. . Volumen que contiene dos obras diferentes encuadernadas conjuntamente. La primera de ellas es la edición hamburguesa de 1706 del Curiositates Inauditae de Gaffarel, sacerdote y teólogo francés, máximo representante de la Cábala Cristiana en el siglo XVII. Este movimiento trató de conciliar el cristianismo con algunos aspectos de la tradición judaica, siguiendo el sendero abierto por Ramón Llull tres siglos antes y seguido por Pico della Mirandola en el s. XV. Esta obra defiende que el hebreo era la lengua hablada por Adán o que las estrellas forman en el cielo palabras en hebreo con mensajes de Dios. Sufrió censura por parte del gobierno francés, que obligó a Gaffarel a retractarse, aunque con posterioridad su autor fue nombrado asesor de Luis XIII y posteriormente encargado por Richelieu para mediar entre católicos y calvinistas. La segunda obra es una refutación de la primera a cargo de Gregoire Michel, contemporáneo del autor y uno de sus mayores críticos, junto a Gabriel Naudé o Mersenne. El libro se presenta muy bien conservado, con un frontispicio grabado correspondiente a una edición anterior de 1678, dos láminas desplegables que muestran las claves para interpretar las estrellas mediante el alfabeto hebreo y 15 ilustraciones fuera de texto que muestran diferentes figuras mitológicas. Buen estado. .

Notated on two systems: violin and figured bass; as specified in the notes on performance, the second violin part of sonatas no. 9-14 is not included in the score but published in a separate volume. Some soiling and offsetting; occasional minor stains; second violin part to sonatas 9-14 lacking, as in other some other recorded copies. First Edition. RISM M 1226; Lesure p. 423; Hirsch III, 390 (with second violin part). "[Michele Mascitti was an] Italian composer and violinist. He was taught by his uncle, Pietro Marchitelli, who was attached to the royal chapel of Naples and to the church of S Bartolomeo as a violinist... He settled in Paris in 1704... Mascitti became a figurehead of Italian instrumental music in France and was regarded as the peer of Corelli and Albinoni. Possessing the advantage over his fellow-nationals of residence in Paris, where all nine of his published collections were first issued between 1704 and 1738, Mascitti enjoyed enormous popularity with the French public, to whom he was affectionately known by his first name Michele in various gallicized forms... Mascitti's published works offer a competent reproduction of Corelli's style lightly retouched to conform to French taste." Michael Talbot in Grove online Bound with: MACARANI, Stefano fl. 1709-20 [12] Trattenimenti Musicali di Sonate da Camera a Violino Violone o Cembalo Dedicate al Genio Sublime de Nobili Dilettanti...

Gerber, Neues Lexikon II, p. 282 ("ca. 1720"). Eitner 6, p. 262. Stefano Macarani (styled "Marchese Stefano alli Macarani Patritio Romano" on the title of the edition) is an obscure figure. He is not listed in Grove, MGG, or other modern reference works consulted except RISM. Bits of information may be gleaned from various older sources: "Macharani[!] (Steffano) ein Römischer Patricius, hat ein aus 12 Sonaten a Violino solo e Continuo bestehendes Werck, so sein erstes ist, herausgegeben; man kann es zu Amsterdam in Kupffer haben" (Macharani Steffano, a Roman patrician, has edited an opus of 12 sonatas for solo violin and continuo, which is his first; it is available in engraved form in Amsterdam). Johann Gottfried Walther, Musicalisches Lexicon, 1732. "Macharini[!] (Steffano) ein röm. Patricier und Dilettant ums J. 1720, hat herausgegeben: XII Sonate a V. solo e Continuo. Op. 1" (Macharini Steffano, a Roman patrician and amateur, fl. ca. 1720, has edited XII Sonate...). Ernst Ludwig Gerber, Neues Historisch-Biographisches Lexikon der Tonkünstler, 1814. "Macarani, Stefano, bekannt durch Trattenimenti musicali di Sonate da camera a V. Violone e Cembalo. Op. 1... Lebenszeit 17.-18. Jh." (Macarani, Stefano, known for his Trattenimenti... lived in the 17th and 18th century). Robert Eitner, Quellen-Lexikon, 1900. Except for Eitner, who quotes the title of the present edition (from the Dresden copy), these references are probably to a later edition, only known from advertisements and catalogues, published by Estienne Roger and Michel- Charles Le Cene, Amsterdam, in ca. 1715; see Rudolf Rasch: The Music Publishing House of Estienne Roger and Michel-Charles Le Cene 1696-1743 (= My Work on the Internet, Volume Four), The Catalogue Maasmann- Musicien. Bound with: [ANONYMOUS]. Two sonatas in C minor (with key signature of two flats only) and A major for violin and basso continuo. [11], [i] (blank staves) pp. Manuscript. Eight staves per page. Notated in an accomplished early 18th century hand. Unlocated in the RISM manuscript database. With handstamp "Provenant de la collection musicale d'Andre Meyer Decede en Mai 1974 F. Meyer Octobre 84," to penultimate rear endpaper and manuscript note to final endpaper: "Co Livre a fait partie de la Collection musicale de de mon Pere Andre Meyer a qui je penserai toujours, decede le 10.5.1974. Son Fils Francois Le 10.5.1977." Oblong folio. Full 18th-century mid-tan mottled calf with raised bands on spine in decorative compartments gilt, edges speckled, marbled endpapers.

        Jure Divino: A Satyr. In Twelve Books. By the Author of The True-Born- Englishman

      London: (no publisher or printer stated), 1706. First Edition. Fine in a recently rebound full leather (calf) binding with five raised bands on the spine, gilt text in one of the compartments and ornaments in the others, and with sprinkled panels on the covers. A quarto measuring 12 5/8" by 8". [4], i-xxviii, [4], i-vii, [1], 26; 32; 10,15-28; 30; 32; 20, 28; 34; 24; 26; 32; 23, [4]. Page 16 of Book I is misprinted as page 12, page 17 of Book IV is misprinted as "Book VI" (a fact not appearing in any bibliographies to date); and, in Book III pages 11 through 14 are not present (as is typical) but the catchwords match with no pages missing. The engraved frontispiece by Michiel Van der Gucht of DeFoe is missing. However, as stated in Foxon's English Verse 1701-1750 the frontispiece was optional for the authorized edition which was sold by subscription. A foolscap watermark is discernible on the last page of text conforming to Foxon's description of the authorized edition. This is not the pirated edition printed by Benjamin Bragg and distributed just a day before the Defoe's authorized edition. A very clean and bright copy with no foxing and minimal tanning. (Foxon, D-128; Moore: Checklist, 115; Furbank & Owens, 81)

        ACT OF UNION.] A coherent tract volume of ten pamphlets, for and against the Union, published in 1705-6.

      1706 - Small 4to., in excellent condition apart from a scattering of small wormholes in the last three pamphlets, not really affecting text; attractive contemporary panelled calf labelled 'UNION PAMPH', spine slightly rubbed.The months leading up to the Act of Union in January 1707 were a time of heated debate in Scotland. Politicians, writers, the landed gentry, churchmen, and others joined in making their opinions known in tracts and speeches. To pressures from an England anxious to ensure a Protestant succession were added economic pressures from the failure of the Darien project, the promised access for Scottish trade to England's commercial empire, and the promise of greater security. Daniel Defoe was one of the agents sent to Scotland to promote the advantages of Union. On the other side there was much talk of Scotland's ancient traditions, fears for the preservation of Scottish Presbyterian church government, and worries about increased taxes and customs duties. The most passionate speech against the Union, a great piece of political oratory (no. 9 below), was delivered in Parliament on 2November 1706 by John Hamilton, second Lord Belhaven, predicting a bleak future:I think, I see a Free and Independent Kingdom delivering up That, which all the World hath been fighting for to wit, A Power to Manage their own Affairs . I think I see the Valliant and Gallant Soldiery petitioning for a small subsistence . I think I see the Honest Industrious Tradsman loaded with new Taxes drinking Water in place of Ale, eating his fatless Pottage . I think I see the Laborious Plew-man, with his Corns spoiling upon his Hands, for want of Sale, Cursing the day of his Birth, dreading the Expense of his Burial, and uncertain whether to Marry or do worse.But Belhaven was in a minority as it became increasingly apparent that Scotland, virtually bankrupt from the Darien disaster, did not have any real choice. The Act ratifying the Treaty of Union was passed on 16 January 1707 by 110 votes to 69, and the independent Scottish Parliament sat for the last time on 25 March.The pamphlets included are as follows: First edition of the most celebrated of all the speeches against the Union, 'a most emotional speech, intended in part at least for the express purpose of whipping up public sentiment' (McLeod). There were a number of reprints, in quarto and octavo, and as a folio single sheet. McLeod 241.W. R. and V. B.
