Benjamin Franklin
1706. Among the most famous of all charitable bequests: Franklin did not believe that a public servant should be enriched and famously gave 1,000 pounds on his death to his two cities: Boston and Philadelphia; This is his Boston donation This was Franklin’s paycheck for serving as the President of Pennsylvania, signed by his executor and the state Treasurer, and distributed to his executors Benjamin Franklin was born on Milk Street, in Boston, Massachusetts, on January 17, 1706. 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." Franklin left his apprenticeship without his brother's permission, and … [Click Below for Full Description]

c. 1706 - Copper engraved with hand colour 116 x 170 mm. La Feuille's map centres on the River Thames, covering London from Shoreditch to Shadwell and from Lambeth to St. James Park. Both Saint Paul's Cathedral and the Tower of London are easily identifiable. Two coats of arms are present; one of the city of London featured in the upper left corner and a royal crest bottom centre. The royal crest is surrounded by two alllegorical figures representing the Thames and Britain. Daniel de La Feuille (1640 - 1709) was born a Huguenot in Sedan, France. As a young man, he was the apprentice of a watchmaker. In 1683, the Huguenots faced religious prosecution, causing the de La Feuille family to flee to Amsterdam. By 1686, Daniel de La Feuille was a citizen and established himself as an engraver, publisher, and art dealer. In 1691, he was admitted into the Booksellers Guild.

Voltaire, François-Marie Arouet, (1694-1775).
1706. 3 pp. 4to. on double leaf. Black ink. The newest tragedy by Saurin, "Blanche et Guiscard, tragédie imitée de l'anglais de Tancred and Sigismunda de Thomson", gives Voltaire a reason to repeat his aversion to Shakespeare and English theatre: "Vous avez fait, monsieur, bien de l'honneur à ce Tomson. Je l'ai connu il y a quelque quarante années. S'il avait scu être un peu plus interessant dans ses autres pièces, et moins déclamateur, il aurait transformé le théâtre anglais, que Gilles Shakespear a fait naître et à gâté, mais ce Gilles Shakespear avec toute la barbarie et son ridicule, a comme Lopez de Véga des trais si naïfs et si vrais, et un fracas d'actions si imposant, que tous les raisonnements de Pierre Corneille sont à la glace en comparaison du tragique de ce Gilles [...] Les anglais on un autre avantage sur nous, c'est de se passer de la rime. Le mérite de nos grands poëtes est souvent dans la difficulté de la rime surmontée et le mérite des poëtes anglais est souvent dans l'expression de la nature [...] Vous savez il n'y a pas un mot de vrai dans l'histoire de Sigismunda et Guiscardo, mais je vous sais bon gré d'avoir donné des louanges à ce Mainfroid dont les papes [biffé et réécrit] ont dit tant de mal [...] Un temps viendra où la St Barthelémi sera un sujet de tragédie [...]". - Voltaire. Correspondance. Édition Theodore Besterman. Vol. VII. Paris: Gallimard, 1981, lettre 8186, pp. 589-590.

[THURAH, Laurids de].
BAL 3317; Berlin Kat. 2259; Millard arch. coll. III, 131; not in Fowler. Beautiful atlas of Danish architecture, with the text in Danish, French and German in parallel columns. It shows an abundant wealth of plans and interior and exterior architectural designs, explained in the text. The fine overall views show the castle and gardens of Rosenburg, Christiansburg, Charlottenburg, Amalienburg, etc., and the country-seats Sorgenfrey, Fredensburg, Iägerprijs, Fraidenlund, Scanderburg, Nyekiöburg, Herlufsholm, Walloë, etc. The title-page names no author, but Laurids de Thurah (1706-1759), who signed the dedication to King Frederick V, was the most influential Danish architect of his generation and a leading proponent of the late Baroque style in northern Europe. He was appointed court architect in 1733. In 1735 the new Danish king, Christian VI, made Thurah a grant specifically for the purpose of compiling Den Danske Vitruvius, but he died only months before the first volume appeared, so Thurah dedicated the book to his young son and successor. Vol. I depicts the royal palaces and public buildings of Copenhagen; vol. II the castles and other notable buildings outside the capital. A planned third volume never appeared. With bookplate. Frontispiece bound in vol. II. With some faint stains and minor restorations in the first and last leaves, but still in good condition, with only occasional and mostly marginal spots or small stains. A monumental celebration of Danish architecture, with 282 very large plates.

BOUGUER, Jean.
1706 NAVIGATION of Jean Bouguer Voyages Star Charts Illustrated MAPS Compass A rare second edition of Jean Bouguer’s “Complete Treaty of Navigation”. According to Pierre Bouguer, Jean’s son, on this book, “I believe that I will not be denied by anyone when I saw that this treaty is regarded, for a long time, as the most unique book on these matters.” Jean Bouguer was sailor and voyager on the King’s ships, sadly, he lost a leg in 1698 and became inactive from the Navy. He then began teaching and writing. His navigation expertise was recorded in this book which illustrates general rules of navigation. It also deals with marine charts, understanding tangents & secants, use of logarithms, demonstrations and interpretation of scales and equivalencies, avoiding false routes, and using the Sun and stars to accurately navigate. This 1706 edition includes 11 plates depicting these navigational tools and techniques. The first edition of this book, 1698, was so popular and quickly exhausted that it needed a reprint. Unfortunately, one was not made available until 1706. Item number: #1297 Price: $1,500 BOUGUER, Jean. Traite complet de la navigation : contenant les propositions & pratiques de geometrie, un traite de la sphere & d'astronomie, les tables ephemerides du mouvement du soleil, celles de sa declinaison, de son ascension droite, de son lever & coucher, de son amplitude, & plusieurs autres necessaires en navigation .

JOSEPH, DEN GEBOORNEN INDIAAN.
Leyden, Pieter van der Aa, 1706.Sm.8vo. Old marbled wrappers. With engraved title-vignette and double-page engraving. 23, (4) pp.Issued in Pieter van der Aa's collection of voyages. - When Pedro Alvares Cabral called at Cochin in the winter of 1500 to 1501, he was approached by two Syro-Malabar priests, Joseph and Mathias, who requested to be taken on board for the voyage to Europe so that they could visit Rome and Jerusalem. Mathias, however, died en route. In the cities of Europe, Joseph was apparently interrogated at great length about his homeland, and was regarded as a man of the highest integrity. His description of Cranganore, although bigoted and biased in favour of the Christian community, was widely accepted at face value. In Rome he presented a report on the Malabar Christians and answered numerous questions, some of them directed from the pope himself (Howgego J29). An early account of a visitor from India to Europe. - Fine.Tiele 5; Cat. NHSM I, p.107. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
