        Shogaku tenmon shinansho [trans.: Instruction in Beginning the Study of Astronomy]

      Numerous astronomical diagrams in the text (many heightened in red) & a double-page world map. 26; 21; 34; 23; 26 folding leaves. Five vols. 8vo, orig. patterned wrappers, orig. block-printed title label on upper covers (several quite rubbed, one vol. with some marginal worming), new stitching. Osaka: 1706. First edition of the author&#39;s most important book. Baba (active 1712-18), wrote about thirty books on divination, astronomy, the calendar, Chinese military tales, illustrated commentaries of Confucian classics, and miscellaneous pieces covering a wide range of topics from Chinese to magic tricks. He was among the first of the Japanese astronomers to introduce new astronomical views influenced by Western knowledge. This book and its sequel Tenmon zusetsu [trans.: Illustrated astronomical diagrams, 1713] "gained a great contemporary reputation particularly because of their explanation of solar eclipses which in Japan as elsewhere in the world had been a subject for much superstition."-Grant Goodman, Japan and the Dutch 1600-1853, p. 92. "Another popularizer of Western astronomy was Baba Nobutake, a Kyoto physician who wrote several primers on astronomy...[He] studied Western science through Chinese translations. His most important work, the Tenmon shogaku sho (An Introduction to Astronomy, 1706) [the present work], went a step farther than previous studies in adapting Western views. For instance, instead of the theory of yin-yang, Baba employed the idea of magnetics to explain that the tides on earth are caused by the moon. Baba&#39;s book was influenced by a Chinese work on astronomy, the T&#39;ien-ching huo-wen (Queries on the Classics of Heaven, c. 1675, by Yu I), which is a synthesis of Western and Chinese ideas. Yu I&#39;s work...advocates the Tychonian views of sun and earth as the two centers of the universe."-Wai-ming Ng, The I Ching in Tokugawa Thought and Culture, p. 140. There is also a fine woodcut of an armillary sphere with legs in the forms of dragons. Very good set and rare. &#10087; D.E. Smith, A History of Japanese Mathematics, p. 166-"A well-known work on astronomy." .

        Private Devotions for Several Occasions, Ordinary and Extraordinary

      printed by W.N. for E. and R. Pawlet, London 1706 - 12mo. [161 x 93 x 14 mm]. [1]f, 98pp. Bound c.1820 in straight-grained blue goatskin, the covers with a gilt fillet border, gilt corners of trailing sprigs, and a gilt fillet panel punctuated with circles and husks, enclosing blind corners and a blind centre-piece composed of sprigs, circles, flower-heads and pointillé gouges. The spine divided into six panels, the bands tooled and flanked with gilt fillets, lettered in the second panel and at the foot, the others tooled in gilt and blind, the corners of the edges of the boards hatched in gilt, turn-ins and matching inside joints tooled in gilt and blind, brown endleaves, gilt edges, pair of silver catches and clasps at the fore-edge. Allestree's Private Devotions were included in numerous editions of The Whole Duty of Man from 1659. There were at least seven separate editions, the first dated 1660 (Wing A.1161), followed by two editions of 1706, then 1707, 1724, 1733 and 1740 (though ESTC questions whether the last may be 1704). Of the 1706 editions one has 98pp (Bodleian and McMaster only) and this has [2], 98 pp, and is know only from the Canterbury Cathedral copy. The text has been interleaved with lined blanks and there are a fair number of manuscript additions including a prayer "under the pressure of violent anguish", and two poems, "The Shrubbery, written in a time of affliction", by Cowper, which is signed "E.W. Southill Oct.26 1815" and "An Imitation of Pastor Fido" by Lord Lyttelton, signed "E.W. May 2. 1816, Dover Street". The E.W. was Elizabeth Whitbread, whose bookplate appears at the front. She was the daughter of Charles Grey, 1st Earl Grey and sister of the future Prime Minister, also Charles. In 1788 she married the brewer and politician Samuel Whitbread (b.1764), and the family seat was at Southill Park in Bedfordshire. Samuel committed suicide at their London home, 35 Dover Street, on 6th July 1815. Elizabeth lived until 1848. There are also a few manuscript notes in ink and pencil in the text, and the signature of "Eliz. Crosse" has been cut out and pasted below the bookplate. With the Sotheran ink stamp on the verso of the front free endleaf and Maggs Bros cost code dated 1991 (in the hand of one Edward Bayntun-Coward) at the rear.

Lorenz Frølich, 25.10.1820-25.10.1908, danish golden age artist. From 1833 - at the age of 13 - he received drawing lessons from several famous golden age painters like Martinus Rørbye, Christen Købke og C.W. Eckersberg. On the contrary to his friends J.Th. Lundbye and P.C. Skovgaard, Frölich travelled and lived many years abroad - amongs others in Paris where he married and had a child, Edma Frölich Stage.

        SAGALASSOS City of Water

      ERTUG & KOCABIYIK Sagalassos: City of WaterExtending over the mountainous terrain of Aglasun Mountain in southern Turkey (approx. 150 km north of Antalya) at an elevation of 2045 m, the city of Sagalassos, which once belonged to the ancient region of Pisidia, enjoyed natural protection due to its prominent location. This elevated site was also well-provided with natural spring water, making it an ideal choice for settlement.The city, which was probably initially inhabited in the 5th c BC, is first mentioned historically in connection with the campaigns of Alexander the Great, who defeated the Sagalassians in 333 BC. In the 2nd c AD in particular, Sagalassos experienced an enormous increase in prosperity, coinciding with the Emperor Hadrian?s selection of the city as the centre of the Pisidian Imperial cult.First rediscovered by a French traveller in 1706, Sagalassos was visited by a number of Western explorers throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. Exploratory excavation began in 1987, culminating in an intensive excavation campaign at Sagalassos initiated in 1993 under the direction of the Belgian archaeologist Marc Waelkens. Two decades later, enough has been uncovered to reveal that the city was a jewel not only amongst the Pisidian cities but also in Asia Minor in general.The city boasted all necessary urban infrastructures ? a monumental, although unfinished theatre, a stadium, numerous nymphaea, a library, temples to pagan gods and to the Imperial cult, vast public spaces for commercial and ceremonial purposes, and residential areas. The city also attracted an active artistic community, including sculptors, architects and potters. Sculptors, including representatives of the important marble-producing site of Dokimeion, produced statues and portraits of local benefactors, divinities, and members of the Imperial family, and numerous funerary monuments; architects and architectural sculptors created structures which could easily compete in beauty, majesty and crispness of detail with those from other more well-known sites such as Ephesos; while potters? workshops, exploiting local clay beds, created a widely exported local ceramic ware. Excavations have also shed light on the history of the city in Late Antiquity and beyond, indicating that, in spite of repeated earthquakes, the city continued to be inhabited probably until the late 11th c AD, undergoing the transformation into a Christian city.The architectural splendours ? some of which have been reconstructed ? and the sculptural treasures are the focus of the new book, "Sagalassos: City of Water." Lavishly illustrated with 99 splendid plates by Ahmet Ertug, the book provides an overview of the ancient history, architecture, sculpture, and pottery of the site, as well as the history of its discovery and subsequent exploration. The texts, written by leading scholars in the field, are accessible both to the non-specialist and to the professional, while the illustrations, ranging from breath-taking panoramic overviews of the landscape to minute details of sculptural elements, reinforce Sagalassos? claim to have been one of the leading cities of Asia Minor.The book, which is 34x47cm,contains 208 pages. 99 full-colour plates, and additional plans, provide an exemplary overview of the site and its monuments. Printed in Germany and hand-bound in Switzerland, the volume is presented in a slipcase. Texts by Marc Waelkens, Semra Mägele and Jeroen Poblome; photographs by Ahmet Ertug.

        t Noorder Gedeelte van Virginie door Bartholomeus Gosnol en Martin Pringe uyt Engeland Bevaaren.

      Leiden: 1706 - An early map showing the route from England to Cape Cod, passing the Azores, taken by "Bartholomeus Gosnol" and "Martin Pringe", relatively unrecognized English explorers who lead the first recorded European expedition to Cape Cod, predating William Bradford and the Pilgrims. Bartholomew Gosnold (1572 - 1607) was an English explorer, instrumental in the formation of the Virginia Company and considered by Preservation Virginia to be the "prime mover of the colonization of Virginia". Gosnold pioneered the route west from the Azores to New England (then called Virginia); he named Cape Cod in 1602, discovered Martha's Vineyard (named after his daughter) and established a small settlement on Cuttyhunk Island (one of the Elizabeth Islands). Martin Pring (1580 - 1626) was an English explorer who arrived on Cape Cod (possibly Edgartown) in 1603, just after Gosnold.9 1/4 x 6 1/4"; paper size 13 1/2 x 9". Reference Phillips, P.L.

      A Paris, Chez Frederic Leonard..., 1706. FIRST EDITION. Folio, 385 x 255 mms., pp. 32, 592, ccxxiii [ccxxiv blank], [23 Index, 24 blank], engraved frontispiece by De Poilly, double-page engraved plan of Saint-Denys. and one of the Cathedral, 10 engraved double-page plates of the treasures of the cathedral, two other single page engraved plates, engraved head- and tail-pieces, engraved initials and vignettes within text, contemporary calf, spine richly gilt in compartments with red morocco label laid down and joints restored; small pieces cut from lower corners of three leaves, , but a very good to fine copy of this book, with the engraved armorial bookplate of James Everard. The Abbey of Saint-Denis is inextricably bound up with the history of France, and this sumptuous history with its superb engravings of its treasures remains one of best and most-cited books on the Abbey. The Abbey was dissolved during the French Revolution, and it was significantly damaged as well. It was subsequently restored, under Napoleon III, by Viollet-le-Duc. The relics of St-Denis, which had been transferred to the parish church of the town in 1795, were brought back again to the abbey in 1819. "While contemporary scholars have increasingly problematized the idea of a single Gothic "origin," Saint-Denis is popularly viewed as the site where various structural, spatial, and iconographical components synthesized to result in the Gothic style. In every major survey of art history, the Gothic chapter begins with Saint-Denis. Current medieval architectural historians usually present a more nuanced picture within their specialist work, but at the introductory level of the discipline, Saint-Denis is shorthand for &#39;first Gothic&#39;" (Structuring the Gothic Past). Felibien includes in his text the earliest known description, from the tenth century, of the abbey. Felibien was so successful with this volume that the merchants of Paris importuned him to write a history of Paris. Graesse II, 561. Cohen de Ricci 378.

        Bibliotheca Bigotiana seu catalogus librorum

      J. Boudot C. Osmont G. Martin Paris: J. Boudot, C. Osmont, G. Martin, 1706. First Paris Book Auction for which a Catalogue was Printed [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. 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?s first catalogue, ?and according to Bléchet, Jean-Pierre Nicéron was an editor? (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. 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?amateur de livres (1810). 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? 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. 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).

Frontispiece engraved by Nutting after a drawing by Coypel. A few minor corner creases, very shallow, faint receding tide-mark along extreme lower edges of first few leaves, otherwise a very good, crisp copy. First edition in English, the translation attributed to John Savage. De Piles utilized his position as art buyer for Louis XIV as a cover for political intrigues, and he wrote this work in prison after he was arrested for carrying a false passport in 1692 in the Hague. It was first published in 1699, after he assumed a position with the Académie de Peinture at de Sculpture. In his long dedication to Robert Child, Savage discusses having consulted with several of the experts Dryden drew upon in the course of his translation of Fresnoy, and his indebtedness to those sources for the appended "Essay Towards an English School of Painters," pp. 398-480. ESTC T10568.
