Kupferportrait von Pufendorf, Titelblatt mit in Rot-Schwarz-Druck mit Vignette, 10 Bll., 1 gefaltetes Bl., 1296 S., 7 Bll. (Index Rerum). Prächtiger, zeitgenössischer Pergamentband mit handbeschriebenem Rücken und schönem Blauschnitt. Bedeutende Ausgabe, erstmals mit den Noten von Hertius und den Verteidigungsschriften Pufendorfs im Anhang, neben Grotius der Klassiker des Naturrechts schlechthin. Das epochale Werk (3. deutsche Ausgabe?) zum naturrechtlichen System einer Privatrechtsordnung! - Die Ausgabe, die im Jahre 1672 erstmals erschien, erlebte allein 14 lateinische Ausgaben bis 1773, bis dahin auch 11 Ausgaben der Übertragung ins Französische (vgl. Stintzing-L. III/1, 12ff. (Pufendorf) und 63 (Hertius); Welzel, Die Naturrechtslehre Pufendorfs (1958). - Pufendorf (1632-1694) ist neben Christian Thomasius der berühmteste Vertreter des Naturrechts. Doch hat Pufendorf wie kein anderer auf die Entwicklung 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 unverkennbar. Bis zum Jahre 1684 blieb Pufendorf in Schweden, konnte auf eine außerordentlich erfolgreiche Lehrtätigkeit a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Full page copperplate-engraved frontispiece. This work an English dictionary originally published in 1658 and compiled by Edward Phillips, the nephew of acclaimed English poet John Milton. It was the first folio-sized English dictionary ever published. The work went through five editions during Phillips' lifetime, and by the time of his death, it had expanded from the original 11,000 entries to include about 17,000. In 1706, this sixth "revised corrected and improved" edition was compiled by John Kersey* and expanded even further to include about 38,000 entries. It is known that Phillips had plagiarized at least half of his entries in the original edition from Thomas Blount's "Glossographia" (1656). The frontispiece engraving contains images of Oxford and Cambridge Universities, and portraits of prominent English scholars and literary figures (including Chaucer, Spencer, Sidney and Bacon) surrounding the image of a globe, and is dated 1696; obviously taken from the previous edition of the book.

Gellius, Aulus.
Apud Cornelium Boutesteyn & Johannem du Vivié, 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. In an informal style Gellius ranges from law, grammar, history, and literary criticism to evening chats with fellow students and visits to the awe-inspiring villas of Herodes Atticus, the most famous philanthropist of Athens. 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. Spine with gilt-ruled raised bands, gilt-stamped compartment decorations, and early inked title.

L’édition remise en vente par Le Breton est celle de la veuve Clément Gasse, achevée d’imprimer par Gilles Paulus du Mesnil le 31 janvier 1702.La seconde comédie du recueil est une nouvelle édition des Fables d’Ésope qui parut pour la première fois en 1690, plus connue aujourd’hui sous le titre d’Ésope à la ville. C’est avec cette pièce que Boursault renouvela le genre de la comédie morale en y introduisant des fables comme il le fera plus tard dans Ésope à la cour. Il s’agit d’une critique des mœurs du temps de l’auteur ; l’action se situe en Orient, à la cour de Crésus, roi de Lydie.Cette édition est la troisième de la pièce, après les deux données par Théodore Girard en 16 … [Click Below for Full Description]

COVERTE, Robert.
Leiden Pieter Vander Aa. omswervingen. Van Anno 1607, tot in 't Jaar 1611. Nu aldereerst uyt 't Engelsch vertaald. Text in Dutch or Flemish, translated from the English, 1706, 8vo, approximately 180 x 115 mm, 7 x 4½ inches, vignette on title page, folding map of middle east and India, 2 folding engraved plates, printed in black letter, pages: (4), 61, (5), bound in modern half calf over marbled boards, raised bands, gilt rules and gilt lettered morocco label to spine, new endpapers. 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.

ACT OF UNION.)
London: reprinted for Andrew Bell, 1706. 2 works in one volume, quarto (202 x 149 mm). 19th-century quarter calf, black morocco label to spine, marbled sides. Rebacked and recornered, first title page lightly dust-soiled with small ink notation, Right and Interests with calculation on p. 9, marginal tear repair to pp. 29 & 77, p. 57 roughly opened at head, natural paper flaw to p. 85, just entering text; withal good copies. First London editions of both of these works, relating to the Act of Union. The first work is the record of the proceedings of the Lord Commissioners of both Scotland and England, who met from the 16 April to the 22 July 1706, the day the English Parliament ratified the Union with Scotland Act. The Scottish Parliament passed the Union with England Act the following year, with the two acts combined forming the Act of Union. The second work constitutes the third treatise of James Hodges, who, though a supporter of a form of federal union preserving both parliaments, was a fierce opponent of the union of the parliaments. He published numerous tracts in the run up to the union in an attempt to sway popular opinion. Offering a strident defence of Scotland's national sovereignty, Hodges refutes the rights of representatives of Scotland to sign away the nation's autonomy. Hodges's rhetoric is not too dissimilar to debates around the union and sovereignty of nations today. ESTC T29219; Goldsmiths', 4270.

Muratori Ludovico Antonio
S. stampatore, 1706. Tre prime edizioni in 4° (30x20 cm) rilegate in un volume; XXXX, 420 pp., 168 pp., 44 pp. Legatura settecentesca in mezza pergamena e piatti foderati con carta marmorizzata. Qualche leve difetto e strofinatura ai patti ma nel complesso le tre opere si presentano in buone-ottime condizioni di conservazione. Rarissima raccolta di prime edizioni dedicate alla celebre disputa sul dominio del territorio di Comacchio. Tutte e tre gli scritti, anonimi, furono in realtà composti dal celebre presbitero, storico, scrittore, numismatico e bibliotecario modenese, Ludovico Antonio Muratori (Vignola, 21 ottobre 1672 - Modena, 23 gennaio 1750) che fu anche Bibliotecario e d Archivista di Rinaldo d'Este. Muratori è considerato il padre della storiografia moderna e anche in queste tre opere, l'autore utilizza tutte le sue grandi conoscenze per utilizzare la ricostruzione storica in appoggio alle pretese giuridiche estensi sul territorio delle valli di Comacchio. Le opere furono composte da Muratori, in particolar modo, come risposta ad un testo di Giusto Fontanini "Il Dominio temporale della Sede Apostolica sopra la città di Comacchio" edito per la prima volta nel 1708. Muratori in queste opere controbatte le pretese papali su Comacchio sostenendo la legittimità di quelle del Duca di Modena. Comacchio, con le sue valli ricchissime di pesce, rappresentava un territori odi grande importanza all'interno del sistema economico estense, fin dal 1354 quando lo stesso era stato assegnato agli estensi dall'Imperatore. Nel 1597, approfittando della morte del Duca Alfonso II d'Est … [Click Below for Full Description]

Weller indique que cette édition a été en réalité imprimée aux Pays-Bas.Il existe deux versions de ce texte, chacune ayant fait l'objet de deux éditions : 1702 et 1704 d'une part, et 1703 et 1706 d'autre part. Ces quatre états renferment de substantielles modifications. L'édition la plus étudiée est celle de 1706, grâce à la réédition qu'en fit Ed. de Barthélemy en 1863 sous le titre La cour de Louis XIV à la fin du XVIIe siècle jugée par un de ses contemporains."Son ouvrage appartient au genre du portrait historique et satirique. Ce n'est ni un pamphlet ni un libelle, comme il en parut tant contre Louis XIV et son entourage. L'écrivain, qui manie bien la plume, se propose d'apprécier ceux qui dirigent la France au début du XVIIIe siècle, et il trouve souvent des formules piquantes et qui portent : mais il n'est pas impartial, et il a quelquefois de véritables haines contre certains personnages.

He attended Boston Latin School but did not graduate; he continued his education through voracious reading. Although "his parents talked of the church as a career" for Franklin, his schooling ended when he was ten. He worked for his father for a time, and at 12 he became an apprentice to his brother James, a printer, who taught Ben the printing trade. When Ben was 15, James founded The New-England Courant, which was the first truly independent newspaper in the colonies. When denied the chance to write a letter to the paper for publication, Franklin adopted the pseudonym of "Silence Dogood", a middle-aged widow. Mrs. Dogood's letters were published, and became a subject of conversation around town. When his brother was jailed for three weeks in 1722 for publishing material unflattering to the governor, young Franklin took over the newspaper and had Mrs. Dogood (quoting Cato's Letters) proclaim: "Without freedom of thought there can be no such thing as wisdom and no such thing as public liberty without freedom of speech."

WILLIAM PENN
1706. No binding. Fine. Autograph Letter Signed to James Logan. n.p. [London?], June 27, 1706. 1 p., 6 1/4 x 7 1/2 in. bifolium with integral address leaf with panel in Penn's hand. Penn, writing from England, asks his trusted secretary in Philadelphia to assist Thomas Haywood regarding his lands and debts. Penn was in the midst of his own ongoing dispute about ownership of all of Pennsylvania, which had originated with the crowning of William and Mary in 1688, and trumped-up charges of treason due to Penn's championing of religious freedom, which led to an opportunity for Penn's manager to, in effect, embezzle the entire colony from him. (See below for more details). A month after Penn wrote this letter, Logan advises Penn to avoid ruin by selling the government ""for a valuable consideration"" as the only ""probable method of clearing thy debts."" Penn did not heed Logan's advice, and the court placed Penn in debtor's prison from January 1707 to August 1708. Penn eventually settled the Ford claim with a payment of £7,600, and then began negotiations to sell the colony to the Crown.

WILLIAM PENN
1706. No binding. Fine. Autograph Letter Signed to James Logan. n.p. [London?], June 27, 1706. 1 p., 6 1/4 x 7 1/2 in. bifolium with integral address leaf with panel in Penn's hand. Penn, writing from England, asks his trusted secretary in Philadelphia to assist Thomas Haywood regarding his lands and debts. Penn was in the midst of his own ongoing dispute about ownership of all of Pennsylvania, which had originated with the crowning of William and Mary in 1688, and trumped-up charges of treason due to Penn's championing of religious freedom, which led to an opportunity for Penn's manager to, in effect, embezzle the entire colony from him. (See below for more details). A month after Penn wrote this letter, Logan advises Penn to avoid ruin by selling the government ""for a valuable consideration"" as the only ""probable method of clearing thy debts."" Penn did not heed Logan's advice, and the court placed Penn in debtor's prison from January 1707 to August 1708. Penn eventually settled the Ford claim with a payment of £7,600, and then began negotiations to sell the colony to the Crown. Unfortunately, a series of strokes from 1711 to 1713 interrupted his negotiations, and he died in poverty. His family (after its own dispute between step-sons) retained ownership of the colony of Pennsylvania until the American Revolution.

Iaillot Hubert dis.
1706. Grande carta geografica murale raffigurante i territori del Piemonte, Savoia, Delfinato, la Bresse e parte del territorio di Lione. Stampata in sei fogli, coloritura confinale coeva all'acquerello. Nell'angolo in alto a destra entro decorativo cartiglio, il titolo. Mentre in basso al centro in semplice riquadro sono riportate le scale grafiche: "Lieues Communes de France", "Grandes Lieues de France ou d'une heure de Chemin", "Lieues Communes d'Allemagne ou Lieues de Provence et Daufiné", "Grandes Lieues d'Allemagne", "Grands Milles de Piémont". Nell'angolo in alto a sinistra, sempre in semplice riquadro, sono riportati i segni convenzionali. L'esemplare è particolarmente interessante in quanto nella porzione del Ducato di Milano si rinvengono numerosi segni convenzionali manoscritti ad inchiostro bruno e sottolineature con inchiostro rosso che indicano miniere d'oro, d'argento, di rame e di piombo. Lo stesso vale per la parte settentrionale della Signoria di Vercelli, porzione del Pricipato di Masserano, Ducato d'Aosta ed ancora del Marchesato d'Ivrea. Esemplare genuino che gode di un ottimale stato di conservazione.
