      Amstelaedami, Ex officina Wetsteniana, 1706.. Folio. 2 parts in 1: (8),48,1388,(16),178,(10) p., frontispiece, 3 engraved plates. Vellum. 31 cm (Ref: Hoffmann 3,262; Brunet 4,786: 'Edition la plus belle et peut-etre encore la meilleure que l'on ait de ce lexique'; Ebert 17566: 'Bis jetzt beste Ausgabe'; Spoelder Utrecht 6)) (Details: Prize copy: back gilt, covers gilt, with the coat of arms of Utrecht within ornamental borders; frontispiece by L. Mulder; bound before this frontispiece is a full-page engraving of a triumphal arch, the coat of arms of Amsterdam, and its pride, the Cityhall on the dam-square; title in red & black; after p. 1026 there are bound 2 engraved plates showing coins, in other copies these 2 plates can be found as one fold-out plate) (Condition: Vellum slightly soiled and spotted; the prize is gone, the 4 ties also gone; inner margins of the frontispiece and the 'Amsterdam-plate' have been restored) (Note: The Greek lexicographer Pollux, 2nd century AD, left us a Onomasticon not only for the use of correct Attic. This lexicon/encyclopaedia offers also 'Realia', and is a repertorium of 'loci classici' and a source of numerous 'variae lectiones'. (NP 6,51/52, s.v. Iulius IV,17). 'The honour of reviving the study of Greek in the Netherlands belongs to Tiberius Hemsterhuis (1685-1766)'. (Sandys 2,447). At the age of 21 he accomplished the task of completing an edition of Pollux, a project that was abandoned by J.H. Lederlin. In 1717 he was promoted to a professorship of Greek at the university of Franeker, which was the start of the 'Schola Hemsterhusiana'. His best known pupil there was L.C. Valckenaer. In 1740 he left for Leyden 'where, for a quarter of a century he kept the flag of Greek flying in the foremost of the Dutch universities'. His most famous student in Leyden was D. Ruhnken, who wrote in 1768 a 'Elogium' on him which 'is one of the Classics in the history of scholarship'. (Sandys 2,451) The 'Schola Hemsterhusiana' is famous for the publishing of many works of ancient lexicographers. Hemsterhuis advised his students to use especially ancient lexica. These works could be of great use for the understanding of textual problems and the amending of texts of classical authors, and they were of great help to gain a profound knowledge of the Greek language and its vocabulary. (J.G. Gerretzen, Schola Hemsterhusiana, 1940, p. 100/1) (Provenance: Name on front flyleaf 'J. Berlage', Dutch schoolteacher at the Gymnasium of Gorichem at the beginning of the 20th century. He made there a deep impression on the young Alexander Sizoo, later professor at the Free University of Amsterdam. 'Berlage was vooral de aestheticus, die zijn leerlingen ook in aanraking bracht met de klassieke beeldhouwkunst'. (Jaarboek van de Nederlandse Maatschappij der letterkunde, 1962, p. 155; Berlage wrote a dissertation 'Commentatio de Euripide philosopho', Leiden, 1888) (Collation: a6, b-e4, f6; A-4Q4 4R2 4S-8O4, a-y4 z6) Photographs on request..

        Optice: Sive de reflexionibus, refractionibus, inflexionibus & coloribus lucis

      London: Sam. Smith & Benj. Walford, 1706. <p>Newton, Isaac (1642-1727). Optice. . . . 4to. [14], 348, [2], 24, [2], 43, [1]pp. Leaf Ss1 a cancel. 19 folding engraved plates. London: Sam. Smith & Benj. Walford, 1706. 239 x 188 mm. Paneled calf ca. 1706, rebacked, endpapers renewed, a bit rubbed, corners reinforced. First and last leaves a bit soiled and stained, but otherwise a very good, crisp copy. 18th century owner&#146;s signature (A. Worden of Trinity College, Dublin), dated 1740, on title.</p><p>First Edition in Latin of Newton&#146;s Opticks (1704), the most famous English book on optics. This edition contains seven added quaestiones (nos. 17-23), which are partly devoted to Newton&#146;s support for the corpuscular (or emission) theory of light, not found in the English edition. &#147;In the new Queries, Newton expressed fundamental views on the nature of light, on the nature of bodies, on the relation of God to the physical universe, and on the presence in nature of a whole range of forces which furnish the activity necessary for the operation of the world and for its permanence. . . . The new Queries were the most informative of the speculations that Newton ever published&#148; (Westfall, Never at Rest, p. 644). The Latin edition also includes the two mathematical works at the end as in the English edition. As in most copies of this work leaf Ss1 is a cancel; the leaf was replaced because Newton had second thoughts about his original description of universal space as &#147;the sensorium of God&#148; (sensorium Dei). The Latin Optice, which made Newton&#146;s work on optics available to all European scientists, &#147;revolutionized scientific thought and made him recognized as one of the greatest geniuses of all time&#148; (Birren, History of Color in Painting, p. 20).

        Bibliotheca Bigotiana seu catalogus librorum

      Paris: J. Boudot, C. Osmont, G. Martin, 1706. <p>First Paris Book Auction for which a Catalogue was Printed </p><p>[Bigot.] Bibliotheca Bigotiana seu catalogus librorum, quos (dum viverent) summa cura & industria, ingentique sumptu congessere viri clarissimi DD. uterque Joannes, Nicolaus, & Lud. Emericus Bigotii . . . 12mo. [8], 72, [2], 73-220, [2], 248, 59, [1], 31, [1], 31pp. Paris: Apud Joannem Boudot, Carolum Osmont, Gabrielem Martin, 1706. 161 x 94 mm. Calf, gilt spine ca. 1706, light wear. Very good. A few marginal notes in ink and pencil, including possible prices realized. 19th century bookplates of the Car[dinal] de Beaurepaire and Germain Barré. </p><p>First Edition. The Bigot library sale in 1706 was the first book auction conducted in Paris for which a catalogue was printed. The sale by auction of the Bigot family library was conducted by booksellers Jean Boudot, Charles Osmont and Gabriel Martin over the remarkably long duration of five months. This was Gabriel Martin&#146;s first catalogue, &#147;and according to Bléchet, Jean-Pierre Nicéron was an editor&#148; (North, Printed Catalogues of French Book Auctions and Sales by Private Treaty 1643-1830 in the Library of the Grolier Club, no. 12). Prior to this auction several auction catalogues for private libraries had been printed in Paris, but these libraries were sold privately and thus never went to auction. </p><p>Bookseller, publisher and writer Prosper Marchand organized and catalogued the sale for Boudot, Martin and Osmont. One of the ways in which the catalogue was notable was in its introduction into bookselling of the classification scheme organizing information into five great divisions: Theology, jurisprudence, philosophy (i.e., sciences and arts), belles-lettres and history. Gabriel Martin, one of the auctioneers of the Bigot library, promoted this scheme, which originated in the seventeenth century and may have first been applied in the Catalogus bibliothecae Thuanae (1679), the catalogue of the library of French historian and bibliophile Jacques Auguste de Thou. Book auctions in France would follow this scheme throughout the 18th century, and in the early 19th century Jacques Charles Brunet elaborated on this basic scheme in his famous Manuel du librairie et de l&#146;amateur de livres (1810). </p><p>The Bigot library was begun by Jean Bigot in the early 17th century, and continued by his son, Louis-Emery. It eventually passed to Robert Bigot, sieur de Monville, and was sold at his death in 1706. The library included that of Jean Henri Jacques de Mesmes, for whom Gabriel Naudé, de Mesmes&#146; librarian, had written Avis pour dresser une bibliothèque in 1627. At the time of sale the Bigot library consisted of 450 manuscripts and over 15,000 printed books. </p><p>At the Bigot auction many books and all the manuscripts were purchased for the Bibliothèque du Roi. Over 150 years later the Bigot manuscripts were catalogued by Léopold Delisle as Bibliotheca Bigotiana Manuscripta. Catalogue des manuscrits rassemblés aux XVIIe siecle par les Bigot, mis en vente au mois de juillet 1706, aujourdhui conservé aux Bibliothèque nationale (1877). Albert, Recherches sur les principes fondamentaux de la classification bibliographique. . . . (1847), pp. 17-19.</p>

Occasional light browning to pages, otherwise a very good clean tight copy of a rare travel book. There is very little information about Robert Coverte. Although styled on the title page as Captain Robert Covert, it seems he was steward on the 'Ascension' which sailed from Plymouth in 1607. The vessel ran aground going into Surat, the primary port of the Moghul Empire, but the crew escaped ashore in boats. An English merchant introduced them to the court of the Great Mogul at Agra arriving in December 1609. Coverte with his companions started out for home from Agra at the beginning of 1610 choosing to travel overland through Kandahar, Esfahan, and Baghdad. They reached Aleppo in December 1610 and then took a ship back to England arriving in April 1611. Coverte's account of his travels was first published in London in 1612 and again in 1614.

Copy of the Cullen House. Ides, a Dane in the service of Peter the Great, was sent as Ambassador to the Emperor of China during the years 1693-1695. This narrative describes the countries along the way, the customs and manners of the inhabitants, their religion, government, ceremonies of the Chinese court, etc. This expedition was also important in laying the groundwork for the Russian-Chinese fur trade. First English edition translated form the Dutch (Amsterdam 1704). The plates are those of the Dutch edition, with the Dutch captions replaced by English. ""The Russian embassy had less trouble with the enormous self-esteem of the Chinese than many earlier and later embassies. Before the Tartars became masters of China, it was almost impossible for foreigners to find admittance to the Imperial Court. Under the emperor then ruling, Kan-hi [K'ang-hsi], ministers were courteously received and enabled to transact their business as at any other court. This accommodation was contrary to the temper and traditions of the old Chinese, who opposed it as much as they dared. Kang-hi was desirous of preventing Russian encroachments upon his territories and the Czar was anxious to establish a regular commerce with China. The expedition added considerable geographical knowledge to the little that was known about Manchuria and China"". (Cox). Cordier BS 2468. Cox, I, p. 331. Lust 519.

        Recueil de Contredances mises en Chorégraphie, d&#39;une maniére si aisée, que toutes personnes peuvent facilement les apprendre sans le secours d&#39;aucun maître et même sans avoir eu aucune connoissance de la Chorégraphie. Par Mr. Feuillet. Maître et Compositeur de Dance

      Paris: L&#39;Auteur. 1706. Small octavo. Full 18th century dark brown mottled calf with raised bands on spine in decorative compartments gilt. 1f. (title), 1f. (dedication to Madame La Duchesse du Maine), 1f. ("Préface"), 13ff. ("Eléments, ou Principes de Chorégraphie"), 192 pp. ("Table" to recto of final leaf, "Privilége" to verso). Engraved throughout. With the contemporary signature of Elisabeth Cremon (?1739-1764) to page 2. With music and choreographic notation for 32 dances for 4 couples. Binding quite worn, rubbed and bumped; spine cracking and with early professional repairs to head and tail; gilt faded; endpapers lacking; joints slightly cracked. Slightly worn and soiled; some staining, most noticeable to gutters, outer edges of last leaves and final leaf; some signatures cracked; small portion of lower outer corners of both title and final leaf lacking and professionally repaired, with missing text completed in calligraphic facsimile. . First Edition. Rare. Derra de Moroda 931. Hirsch I 172. Niles & Leslie I p. 165. Lesure p. 697 (three copies only recorded). Not located in RISM. Feuillet, a French choreographer, dancing-master and author, "worked at the court of Louis XIV. His fame rests on his Chorégraphie [Paris, 1700], a book describing a system of dance notation that was used in Europe throughout the 18th century. He probably did not invent the system himself (although he said he had) but derived it from the original work of Pierre Beauchamps, Louis XIV&#39;s personal dancing-master. Unlike previous methods, which describe movement verbally and use letters to refer to the sequence of steps, Feuillet&#39;s system is a track notation. It represents symbolically not only the steps of the dancer, with his turns, leaps and slides, but also the floor pattern in which he is to travel. The dance music is printed at the top of the page, and the steps are marked off in a manner corresponding to the structure of the music..." "The publication of the Beauchamp-Feuillet notation meant that specific dances could easily be distributed throughout Europe. It also added to France&#39;s pre-eminence in the world of dance. Today the system makes it possible for scholars to study some of the dances in use in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, an important period for the development of the classical French ballet style and technique." Meredith Ellis Little in Grove online The present work "contains a simplified explanation of some elements of chorégraphie, here adapted for the notation of contredanses. The opening section entitled: &#39;Elements ou principes de chorégraphie&#39;... describes the symbols for the track, feet, hands, and arms; the steps; and the relation of floor patterns to musical notation. The subsequent section of notated contredanses provides music and floor patterns for 32 dances, each for 4 couples." Schwartz and Schlundt: French Court Dance and Dance Music, p. 33.

        De jure naturae et gentium libri octo cum annotatis Joannis Nicolai Hertii.

      Frankfurt am Main, sumptibus Friderici Knochii, typis Joannis Andreae, 1706.. Editio nova, a mendis infintis, quibus priores editiones scatebant, diligenter repurgata. Quart. Ganzseitiges Kupferportrait von Pufendorf, Titelblatt mit Vignette in Rot-Schwarz-Dreuck, (24), 1.296, (14) S.; (10), 398, (6) S. Zwei Teile in einem schönen, gut erhaltenen zeitgenössischen Pergamentband.. Epochales Werk zum Naturrecht und erster deutscher Entwurf eines naturrechtlichen Systems einer Privatrechtsordnuing! 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 an. Vor allem im Ausland wurde Pufendorf rezipiert, so von John Locke und auch Jean Jacques Rousseau. Auch sein Einfluss auf die Menschenrechtserklärung in den USA ist unverkennbar. Bis zum Jahre 1684 blieb Pufendorf in Schweden, konnte auf eine außerordentlich erfolgreiche Lehrtätigkeit an der Universität zu 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 durch den Willen 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. Im Anhang sind die Stellungnahmen von Pufendorf mitaufgenommen, die er zur Verteidigung seines Werkes gegen heftige Angriffe publiziert hatte: adversus libros de jure natruali et gentium objecta, weiterhin: Epistola ad Adamum Scherzerum, Theologum apud Lipsienses Primarium Epistola ad amicos suos per Germaniam super libello famoso, quem Nicolaus Beckmannus, quondam Professor in Academia Carolina, nunc vero cum infamia inde relegatus, mentito nomine VERIDICI CONSTANTIS superiori anno disseminavit.

        Reflections on Dr. Fleetwood&#39;s Essay upon Miracles:Shewing the Absurdity, Falshood, and Danger of his Notions

      London - Roberts7.5 by 4.5; (viii)492pp., 1706. London - Roberts7.5 by 4.5; (viii)492pp., 1706 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A table-thumping defence of the importance and mystery of divine grace in miracles; levelled as a defence against more empirical attempts to qualify them. John Gilbert was born c1658 and educated at Oxford. Following a published criticism of Catholic doctrine, he was incorporated at Cambridge 1687, and took a living in Peterborough a year later. The Reflections are generally attributed to Gilbert; and comprise a critical response to William Fleetwood&#39;sworks on Miracles. In the Reflections, Gilbert asserts thatFleetwood&#39;s thinking is dangerously undermining to Christianity in that they compromise the &#39;certainty of proof&#39; which miracles give to &#39;revealed religion;&#39; and that it in any event it is not man&#39;s place to set a definitive standard for what is or is not a miracle of God. Condition: Externally, bound in old calf with unreadable small paper label onspine, front hinge a little worn. Internally,hingestender but very fimly bound. Armorial bookplate of W. Wynne and bookplate of Professor David Arthur Pailin onfoxedpastedown; half-title; faint signature of Wynne in old ink at top of title-page; by J. Gilbert written in old ink after title on title-page (a second edition of the work also published in 1706 had the authors name on the title-page); repaired tear in outer margin of title-page; edges of leaves lightly burnished; first and last leaves dusty; tear in outer margin of p. 267 and 269; bottom of p. 269- 230 torn with loss of some paper and a few letters on bottom line of text.

(dedication to Madame La Duchesse du Maine), 1f. ("Préface"), 13ff. ("Eléments, ou Principes de Chorégraphie"), 192 pp. ("Table" to recto of final leaf, "Privilége" to verso). Engraved throughout. With the contemporary signature of Elisabeth Cremon (?1739-1764) to page 2.& & With music and choreographic notation for 32 dances for 4 couples. & & Binding quite worn, rubbed and bumped; spine cracking and with early professional repairs to head and tail; gilt faded; endpapers lacking; joints slightly cracked. Slightly worn and soiled; some staining, most noticeable to gutters, outer edges of last leaves and final leaf; some signatures cracked; small portion of lower outer corners of both title and final leaf lacking and professionally repaired, with missing text completed in calligraphic facsimile. . First Edition. Rare. Derra de Moroda 931. Hirsch I 172. Niles & Leslie I p. 165. Lesure p. 697 (three copies only recorded). Not located in RISM. & & Feuillet, a French choreographer, dancing-master and author, "worked at the court of Louis XIV. His fame rests on his Chorégraphie [Paris, 1700], a book describing a system of dance notation that was used in Europe throughout the 18th century. He probably did not invent the system himself (although he said he had) but derived it from the original work of Pierre Beauchamps, Louis XIV&#39;s personal dancing-master. Unlike previous methods, which describe movement verbally and use letters to refer to the sequence of steps, Feuillet&#39;s system is a track notation. It represents symbolically not only the steps of the dancer, with his turns, leaps and slides, but also the floor pattern in which he is to travel. The dance music is printed at the top of the page, and the steps are marked off in a manner corresponding to the structure of the music..."& & "The publication of the Beauchamp-Feuillet notation meant that specific dances could easily be distributed throughout Europe. It also added to France&#39;s pre-eminence in the world of dance. Today the system makes it possible for scholars to study some of the dances in use in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, an important period for the development of the classical French ballet style and technique." Meredith Ellis Little in Grove online& & The present work "contains a simplified explanation of some elements of chorégraphie, here adapted for the notation of contredanses. The opening section entitled: &#39;Elements ou principes de chorégraphie&#39;... describes the symbols for the track, feet, hands, and arms; the steps; and the relation of floor patterns to musical notation. The subsequent section of notated contredanses provides music and floor patterns for 32 dances, each for 4 couples." Schwartz and Schlundt: French Court Dance and Dance Music, p. 33.

Occasional light browning to pages, otherwise a very good clean tight copy of a rare travel book. There is very little information about Robert Coverte. Although styled on the title page as Captain Robert Covert, it seems he was steward on the &#39;Ascension&#39; which sailed from Plymouth in 1607. The vessel ran aground going into Surat, the primary port of the Moghul Empire, but the crew escaped ashore in boats. An English merchant introduced them to the court of the Great Mogul at Agra arriving in December 1609. Coverte with his companions started out for home from Agra at the beginning of 1610 choosing to travel overland through Kandahar, Esfahan, and Baghdad. They reached Aleppo in December 1610 and then took a ship back to England arriving in April 1611. Coverte&#39;s account of his travels was first published in London in 1612 and again in 1614.

        Dicht- Sing- und Spiel-Kunst, So wohl der Alten, Als ins besonder der Hebreer. 9 Bl., 478 S., 8 Bl. Mit Titelvignette in Holzschnitt, mehrfach gefalt. Kupfertafel und 20 (3 ganzseit.) Textholzschnitten. 4°. Halbpergamentbd d. Z.

      Leipzig, Groot, 1706.. . Seltene erste deutsche Ausgabe. Sehr geschätztes und materialreiches Werk, nicht nur über die "biblische", d. i. speziell Psalmenmusik, sondern über die kultische Musik der Antike überhaupt (z. B. bei den Panathenäen, röm. Gottesdiensten usw.; ein besonderes Kapitel über den Kybelsdienst). Ausführlich werden die Musikinstrumente der Antike behandelt und mit teils ganzseitigen Holzschnittillustrationen mit Saiten-, Blas- und Schlag- (oder sonstigen Lärm-)Instrumenten veranschaulicht. Auch Musikanten und Musikantinnen, Tänzerinnen, Szenen auf Münzen u. a. werden abgebildet. Mehrere zum Thema gehörende Stellen aus griechischen und römischen Poeten (Homer, Diogenes trag., Vergil, Ovid, Catull, Prudentius usw.) sind in guten deutschen Versen wiedergegeben. "Tils Buch ist wohl das erste ausführliche Werk über dieses Thema und blieb für längere Zeit maßgeblich, wie die späteren Auflagen und Übersetzungen beweisen. Er versuchte eine Gesamtdarstellung der sangbaren Poesie der Hebräer, wie ihrer Musikpraxis und ihres Instrumentariums unter Einbeziehung des klassischen Altertums" (Seebaß). Der Verfasser Salomon van Til aus Wesop bei Amsterdam (1644-1713) war Professor der Theologie in Leiden. Er war der Doktorvater von Barthold Hinrich Brockes. Die niederländische Ausgabe war zuerst 1692 in Dordrecht erschienen. - Die Exemplare bei Seebaß und in der Sammlung Schocken hatten nur 5 Bl. Vorstücke. Wie bei Kroker angegeben folgen dort auf die 7seitige Vorrede 2 Seiten mit einem lateinischen Lobgedicht von Thomas Chapman auf Til. Unser Exemplar hat zusätzlich 8 Seiten: "Kurtze Vorstellung Von dem Inhalt des Wercks in dreyen Verhandelungen begriffen". - Hirsch I 578 (abweichende Koll.). Eitner IX 408.

Wohl die früheste von etlichen Moskau-Karten Delisles. - Guillaume Delisle (1675-1726) war ein französischer Kartograph aus Paris. Delisle war der erste, der eine wissenschaftlich vergleichende Geographie anbahnte, indem er bei seinen Werken auch Reiseberichte und die Werke von Naturforschern benutzte. Er gab zahlreiche Landkarten heraus, die sich durch Eleganz und Schärfe von den früheren Karten unterschieden. - Der breite weiße Rand wurde zeitgenössisch eigens aufmontiert, vermutlich wegen der enormen Blattgröße. Sauber und gut erhalten. / Early print of this Delisle maps. The large white edges were mounted on both maps separate in contemporarily time (probably because of the large sheet size).
