Contemporary paneled calf, spine gilt, leather label, expertly rebacked with original spine laid down. First edition of this important contemporary account of an early circumnavigation of the globe. "It was Funnell, not Dampier, who really circumnavigated the globe on this voyage, as Dampier proceeded only as far as the South Seas. The purpose of the expedition was to harass the Spaniards and take plunder from vessels and towns in South America. Its failure was due to the differences that arose between them. Funnell arrived in England before Dampier and seized the opportunity to compose a relation of his voyage; a task for which he was poorly qualified. His narrative contained much that was disapproved of by Dampier, who immediately after published a "Vindication" of his voyage, pointing out the misrepresentations of Funnell" (Hill). Sometimes considered a fourth volume of Dampier's account, though there is no indication it was meant as such at the time of publication. Hill 664; Sabin 26213.

      William Redmayne 1707 - woodcut arms of the school on title-page, small hole in first leaf of text affecting a few letters, ink blots on p. 86, rust hole in S2 and paper flaw in U1 affecting a few letters, front fly-leaf loose, that at the rear missing, pp. [i], 308, [2, ads], 8vo, contemporary calf, blind roll tooled borders on sides with corner ornaments, a little rubbed, spine defective at head, armorial book-plate inside front cover (see below), good The ninth but not the last edition of this Westminster School Greek grammar, attributed to the headmaster Richard Busby (1606-1695), who compiled his grammars ‘with the assistance of his ushers’ (ODNB). It was first published at Cambridge in 1647 and first printed by a Redmayne in 1663. This is a rather charming copy, whose first owner, William Powell, seems to have been an assiduous student with a fondness for writing his name in Greek characters. The book was cherished in the Powell family, if the engraved armorial bookplate of W.T.R. Powell (1815-1878), M.P. for Cardiganshire, is anything to go by. Westminster, Christ Church and Parliament was the traditional family route. (ESTC T129127)

        The Spanish Libertines:

      London - Samuel Bunchley, 1707 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. Full calf leather binding with gilt lettering to spine. The first edition of this scarce and importantwork. Contains 3 Spanish stories and a play translated into English by John Stevens. The Spanish works are attribued to Francesco Lopez de Ubeda and Andres Perez de Leon, Fernanso Rojas, Gonzales and Juan de Avila. John Stevens (c. 16621726), was a translator and antiquary. He settled in London in 1695 to make a living as a professional writer, putting his command of Spanish and Portuguese to practical, though not lucrative, use. Over the next thirty years he published over twenty translations, mainly from the Spanish, in addition to histories of Spain and Portugal and a painstakingly researched Spanish dictionary. He satisfied the contemporary taste for books of travel by making available some of the classics of the conquista: accounts written from an Iberian, rather than an English point of view. Though self-deprecating about his literary style, he produced a lively and successful translation of Quevedo's comic satires. He preferred fact to fiction, and required a tale to carry a moral. The austere and devout Quevedo, champion of absolute monarchy, was his favourite writer, and in 1709 he recruited him to the tory cause by translating two of his political works in defence of Dr Henry Sacheverell. Condition: The binding is firm and the rear board is attached, though by the cords only. The front board is detached but present, and the rear inner hinge is strained. There is some wear to the extremities, particularly to the spine which is chipped, and to the front board which is damaged with loss of leather. The corners are bumped and the boards are also rubbed in places. Internally the book is bright apart from some occasional spotting and handling marks. There are also some water marks affecting thebeginning of the book in particular. There is an ownership plate to the front paste down..

Norman copy, with bookplate.</p><p>First Edition, possible third state of the title, with the engraved arms of Pope Clement XI, Lancisi, physician to Pope Clement xi, undertook this study of sudden deaths under papal directive after an unusually large number of such deaths had occurred in Rome the previous year. Autopsies of the deceased showed that their deaths were often due to hypertrophy and dilatation of the heart, and to various kinds of valve defects. Lancisi also gave the first description of valvular vegetations, and included in his book a historical survey of the literature and a classification of the cardiac diseases then recognized. Leibowitz suggests that Lancisi&#39;s work "must be the first epidemological study of a non-communicable condition" (History of coronary heart disease, pp. 74-75).</p> There are three states of the title-page: one with a woodcut skull-and-crossbone vignette, one with woodcut arms of Pope Clement xi measuring 65 x 60 mm., and one with a larger engraved version of the Pope&#39;s arms measuring 95 x 120 mm. The engraved version of the arms, because it is larger and more elaborate than either of the woodcut title decorations, may have followed the others, but the chronology of states may never be ascertained.

        Collectio nova patrum et scriptorum Graecorum , Eusebii Caesariensis, Athanasii, & Cosmae Aegyptii

      Paris: Cl. Rigaud, 1707. Two volumes, large folio; double-column text and translation printed in Greek and Roman letter; four full-page engravings and two woodcuts in the text illustrating the Cosmas section; some light browning of text but in sound condition in a modern library binding of quarter calf lettered in gilt, speckled paper sides, red edges. 6th century: the earliest Christian maps. A rare and important travel book, not much noticed in the literature. The account of his sixth century travels by Cosmas Indicopleustes appears here in print for the first time, accompanied by what have been described as - in all probability - the earliest Christian maps. The great palaeographer Montfaucon&#39;s eighteenth-century collection of Greek patristic (early Christian) writings prints for the first time newly discovered works by Athanasius and Eusebius of Caesarea, but is of most interest now for publishing for the first time the {i Topographia Christiana} of the sixth-century traveller Cosmas - known as Indicopleustes, or the Indian Voyager - from the tenth-century manuscript in the Vatican, illustrated with four full-page engravings and several woodcuts in the text. A merchant from Alexandria, around the year 530 Cosmas sailed in the Red Sea and visited Ethiopia. &#39;He definitely visited Adulis (= Zula), where he found an inscribed marble seat, and described the Persian Gulf, Socotra, India and Ceylon, although there is no proof that he travelled that far. In fact he is quite honest about the places he visited and it can be assumed unlikely that he sailed far beyond the coasts of the Red Sea and South Arabia. His description of Ethiopia documents some of the large expeditions sent by the Kings of Aksum to the coast of Sasu, thought to be southern Somalia. &#39;In about 548 Cosmas became a monk and retired to Sinai where he wrote his Topographia Christiana. It is for this, probably the first work of Christian geography and containing the first Christian maps, that he is best known. He regarded the Earth as a rectangular plane covered by the vaulted roof of the firmament, with heaven above. He recognized Ceylon as an entrepot in the trade between India and the Far East, and was aware that to reach China (he calls it &#39;Tzinitza&#39;) one had to sail east then turn north…&#39; (Howgego, I, C200). Cosmas was a flat-earther, who scoffed at the idea of an antipodes on the basis that people there would have to hang on upside down: the illustration reproduced by Montfaucon from the early mansucript that he examined shows how absurd Cosmas found the idea of a globe with antipodeans thus disadvantaged. The chief object of his "Topography" was &#39;to denounce the false and heathen doctrine of the rotundity of the earth, and to vindicate the scriptural account of the world. According to Cosmas our terrestrial home is a tabernacle or tent: the earth is a rectangular plane, covered by the vaulted roof of the firmament, above which lies heaven. In the centre of the plane is the inhabited earth, surrounded by ocean, beyond which lies the paradise of Adam. The sun revolves round a conical mountain to the north - round the summit in summer, round the base in winter, which accounts for the difference in the length of the day. &#39;The best known and most celebrated part of the "Topography" is the description, in the ninth book, of Ceylon and of the plants and animals of India… The work also contains in all probability the oldest Christian maps, either made by Cosmas himself or prepared under his direction… He attacked the theory that the earth was a sphere, both on the grounds of its pagan origin and common sense, and he was particularly anxious to discredit the existence of the Antipodes. How can rain fall up in the southern hemisphere? How could people hang upside down by their toes? Beazley notes that &#39;he carried the popular tradition to the furthest extreme.

Titolo, Ritratto di Giuseppe imperatore di Romania, una tavola con lo stemma del Re di Ungheria e di Boemia, un' altra tavola con due diversi costumi di ungheri, 10 ff. (20 pagine) di testo, una grande carta geografica del Corso del Danubio fino a Nicopoli e paesi adiacenti, un f. con il sottotitolo Ungheria inferiore, un grande prospetto della città di Buda ripiegato, 5 tavole varie, una veduta della fortezza di Comona, 2 tavole varie, una grande carta geografica della Russia meridionale o Negra comprendente la Transilvania fino alla Moldavia, 10 tavole varie, una grande carta geografica della Gran Russia o Russia Negra, 10 tavole varie, una grande carta geografica dell' Ungheria, 10 tavole varie, una grande carta geografica del Principato di Moldavia detto altrimenti di Valachia o Olahasag Transdanum, 3 tavole varie, un f. col sottotitolo Ungheria superiore, una grande carta geografica del Territorio di Naiasel, e Gran sin'a Comora con gli accampamenti dell' armata imperiale, 10 tavole varie, una grande carta geografica del Regno di Serpuiliati - Illiricum, 13 tavole varie ed infine un f. con l' Indice delle figure in rame del presente tomo del Teatro della Guerra. Complessive 89 tavole, comprese le pagine di testo. Esemplare bellissimo nella sua legatura coeva officinale; un piccolo restauro lungo il margine inferiore del titolo abilmente eseguito. Edizione originale di estrema rarità, il più completo esistente nel mondo: l' Arnau (v. Coronelli, pp. 150 - 52) ne rintracciò soltanto tre copie (una a Firenze, una ad Amburgo e l' altra in un catalogo antiquario del 1939) tutte prive dell' indice, che si trova invece nel nostro esemplare nel quale non esiste la tavola di Venezia (descritta dall' Arnau ma non elencata nell' indice, ciò che fa ritenere che essa fu aggiunta nell' esemplare da lui osservato, ma non faceva parte del libro). Dei vari volumi della raccolta sul Teatro della Guerra, l' Ungheria è quello che comprende il testo descrittivo più esteso... con una dettagliata illustrazione storico - geografica dell' Ungheria e dei suoi 56 comitati o distretti e un elenco alfabetico dei suoi fiumi (Armao). Apponyi, Hungarica, IV, 2358, descrive ampiamente quest' opera e non cita la tavola di Venezia, che non deve esistere. Il presente esemplare è quindi il solo completo conosciuto. Sul P. Coronelli, si veda D.B.I., vol. 29, pp. 305 - 9.

        Projet d'une dixme royale .

      N. p.: 1707. - xii, 268 pp; 4 folding tables. Contemporary leather. Very Good. Second edition. The first edition, published in January, 1707, was suppressed by order of parliament. 'Vauban's Projet d'une dixme royale ('Project for a Royal Tythe, or General Tax') caused a stir in 1707. It did not appear under his own name, for Vauban was well aware of the controversy it would bring. In it, he asserted that France's complicated tax code should be abandoned and a flat tax of ten percent on property and trade be put in place. More significantly, in this book Vauban supported his arguments with a wealth of statistical data he had collected, and thus laid the foundation for the use of statistics to corroborate and forecast economic aims. Louis XIV censored its publication, however, and this devastated Vauban, though it appears they remained friends' (answers[dot]com/topic/vauban). 'This is one of the outstanding performances in the field of public finance, unsurpassed, before or after, in the neatness and cogency of the argument. . Vauban rose fully to those heights, trodden by so few, from which fiscal policy is seen to be a tool of economic therapeutics, the ultimate result of a comprehensive survey of the economic process. With Gladstonian vision he realized that fiscal measures affect the economic organism right to its cells and that the method of raising a given amount of revenue may make all the difference between paralysis and prosperity. Second, he based his conclusions in every detail on numerical fact. His engineer's mind did not guess. It figured out. Purposeful marshalling of all the available data was the essence of his analysis. Nobody ever understood better the true relation between facts and argument. It is this that makes him an economic classic in the eulogistic sense of the word, and a forerunner of modern tendencies' (Joseph A. Schumpeter, History of Economic Analysis, pp. 197-8).

        Traité des Eunuques, dans lequel on explique toutes les différentes sortes d'eunuques . On éxamine principalement s'ils sont propres au mariage, & s'il leur doit être permis de se marier .

      [Berlin?] 'Imprimé l'an M.DCC.VII.' [ 1707]. - First edition of this extraordinary treatise on the status of eunuchs in society according to civil and canon law. Largely based on classical sources, history and (most interestingly) anecdotal evidence from the Orient, Ancillon considers the reasons for the phenomenon (including slavery, household, employment or punishment for sexual misdemeanour). The major contention is that while civil law permits a eunuch to marry, canon law should forbid it (as it did) on the grounds that a marriage could not be consummated. Along the way Ancillon recounts numerous anecdotes of famous eunuchs, notably Abelard, castrated at the instigation of Heloise's family.The book was later translated into English by Robert Samber as part of Edmund Curll's Eunuchism dsplay'd (1718).This copy of Traité des Eunuques is one of at least two issues of the same year with slightly different paginations and title ornaments. The 'Epitre dedicatoire' is signed: 'C. d'Ollincan' an anagram of the author's real name. 12mo (160 × 88 mm), pp. [20], 187, [1], title with woodcut device (an armillery sphere).

        PERI BIOU PYTHAGORIKOU LOGOS. DE VITA PYTHAGORICA LIBER, GRAECE & LATINE.

      Imp. Vda. Sebastian Petzold & Christian Petzold. Amsterdam, 1707 - . 21 cm. [16], 67-93 pág., 3 h. de índices. Texto enfrentado griego-latín, a dos columnas. Portada a dos tintas. Ilustr. con un retrato calcográfico de Pitágoras por Fulvium Ursinum, a plena página. Enc. en pergamino, cortes jaspeados. * Tras la obra propiamente dicha, y con paginación propia (aunque la colación es continua), contiene Notae Conradi Rittershusii. in Malchum, sive Porphyrium, De vita Pythagorae publicada por vez primera por Cunradum Agricolam en 1610. Jámblico de Calcis (c. 250-330) fue el máximo representante del neoplatonismo asirio y quien marcó la dirección que tomaría la filosofía neoplatónica de entonces en adelante. A pesar de haber generado abundante obra propia, es sobre todo conocido por la que ofrecemos, un compendio sobre la filosofía pitagórica. Estudió inicialmente con Anatolio de Laodicea y, más adelante, con Porfirio, que había sido discípulo de Plotino. Aproximadamente en el año 304 regresó a Siria y formó su propia escuela cerca de Antioquía, en la que enseñaba las teorías de Platón y Aristóteles. Sin embargo, para él la máxima autoridad era Pitágoras. Sus obras se conservan de forma parcial, y sólo a través de estos fragmentos y del trabajo que ofrecemos podemos conocer su sistema de pensamiento. En cuanto a las teorías neoplatónicas, Jámblico es el responsable de la introducción del concepto de la encarnación del alma en la materia (cuya divinidad habría que situar al mismo nivel que el del resto del cosmos). Este es, según los expertos, el punto de partida fundamental a medio camino entre sus propias ideas y las de sus predecesores, que tenían a la materia por un concepto deficiente. Aclamado por sus seguidores, algunos llegaron incluso a creer que el filósofo poseía facultades milagrosas. Este fue uno de los motivos por los que su nombre se asoció, durante los siglos XV y XVI, al calificativo de "divino". Además del autor, participaron en esta edición el filólogo, paleográfo y editor de textos griegos antiguos Ludolph Küster (1670-1716), el humanista, geógrafo e historiador alemán Lukas Holste (1596-1661), Ulrich Obrecht y Konrad Ritterhausen, que es el responsable de los comentarios a la obra contenidos en la segunda parte. neoplatonismo, pitágoras, filosofía griega Filosofia Libros antiguos anteriores a 1830 latín [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Cronica de Matematici overo Epitome dell'Istoria delle Vite Loro.

      Urbino: Angelo Antonio Monticelli 1707 - FIRST EDITION, with an engraved view of Urbino on the title-page, pp. [xvi, including half-title], 156, 4to, contemporary vellum, black lettering piece on spine, recased (new end papers), headcaps defective, Walter Bowman&#146;s copy with his signature on verso of half-title, good First edition of the first history of mathematics written by a European. Probably completed in 1596, the Cronica arranges its brief biographical entries as a genealogical account of the restoration of mathematics from Ancient Greece (beginning with Euphorbus) to contemporary Italy (ending with Guidobaldo del Monte), including an impressive list of Arabic practitioners. It was an attempt to do for mathematics what Vasari had done for art. A polymath of remarkable range who left a large corpus of writings, Baldi (1553-1617) was a serious mathematician and translator of mathematical works (including Hero of Alexandria); he studied in Urbino with Federico Commandino and Guidobaldo del Monte.The printer's motive for publishing the Cronica in 1707 was to prepare an audience for the more detailed - if less inclusive - two volume Vite [Lives] which never followed. Rediscovered only in 1972, the voluminous Lives has meant that the less detailed Cronica has received little attention. But as the printer Monticelli points out, rather than being merely an abridgment of the larger project, the Cronica, with 366 biographical entries, is over half again as large as the Vite and represents a different but related project for the construction of a history of mathematics. Giovanni Maria Crescimbeni (1663-1728) described the genesis of the Cronica in his biographical notice on Baldi, written about 1704, just before its publication: &#145;After finishing the Vite he noted that even before Thales there were mathematicians, whose lives could not be written due to the loss of sources, but whose names survived and were worth recalling. Moreover, he thought that the vastness of the Vite he had written might make reading the work a little unwieldly and cumbersome, and lastly that after Clavius others had lived who were worth mentioning, so after a while he was persuaded to make a succinct chronology of these same Professors, starting with Euphorbus instead of Thales, and ending with Guidobaldo de' Marchesi del Monte . He certainly intended such a useful and beautiful work for the press, as we see both volumes [of the Vite] along with the Cronica carefully transcribed in his own hand, but, whether distracted by something else, or prevented by death, he left them unprinted.&#146;Walter Bowman, of Cupar, Fife, had a notable mathematical library. We have seen other books from it, including the first edition of Newton&#146;s Principia. (Riccardi I, 68)

Salvioni, 1715, [6], 53 [1] pp., title vignette. Three works bound in one, contemporary calf, skillfully rebacked and repaired, some foxing and dust soiling to margins, library stamps to titles. ---- I. Garrison-Morton 2731; Norman 1273; Wellcome III, p.441. -- First edition. The work that "laid the foundation for a true understanding of cardiac pathology" (Garrison-Morton). In it he gives the first description of valvular vegetation, and an historical survey of the literature and classification of cardiac diseases. ---- II. Heirs of Hippocrates 689; Osler 3149; Waller 5543; Wellcome III, p. 441; Norman 1274. FIRST EDITION OF ONE OF THE EARLIEST WORKS ON ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH. As papal physician for 30 years, Lancisi was deeply interested in public health and epidemiology, and his research into contagious diseases was well in advance of his time. 'In the present work, the first on municipal hygiene, he examined what he considered to be the health-affecting aspects of the Roman environment, particularly her water supply and the insalubrious Pontine marshes' (Norman). A few years later Lancisi published a study exclusively devoted to the disease-causing effects of the marshes (De noxiis paludum effluviis libri duo, 1717), in which he reported on his research into malaria, epidemic in Rome, attributing the disease 'by a brilliant intuition' (DSB) to the proliferation of mosquitoes in the swamps, and urging that they be drained, unfortunately without success. The second part of the present work describes the devastating influenza epidemic that originated in Italy in 1709 and swept through most of Europe. Before his death Lancisi donated his personal medical library of over 20,000 volumes to the Hospital of Santo Spirito in Rome for the education of its physicians and surgeons. The Lancisi library, which opened in 1716, remains one of the more important collections for the study of the history of medicine. 1707, 1711, 1715 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        MAASE RAV Maaseh Rav Maase Rav

      (Thomas Ilive?), London 1707 - 14 leaves. Maaseh rav is a refutation of Rabbi Uri Faibesh's responsum, Urim v¿etumim, on a bill of divorce and includes responsa from various rabbis; Teshuvot ha-geonim discusses the pronunciation of God's name. This booklet was published after a quarrel within the Ashken. congregation in London in 1704 which had caused a rift in the congregation and the creation of a second Ashken. congregation. Maaseh Rav was composed to justify the secession and as a refutation of the booklets Urim Wetumim, London, 1706 which was written by the official rabbi Uri Phoebus b. Herz Hamburger before he left London in the same year.A Rabbinic controversy surrounding a divorce granted by Chief Rabbi Aaron Hart to one Ansel Katz of London prior to his sailing for the Caribbean. This decision was publicly criticized by Mordechai Hamburger who was promptly placed under the communal ban of ¿herem.¿ Additionally, Hart set out the matter in the pamphlet ¿Urim Vetumim¿ (London 1707). To defend his position, Hamburger had a member of his household (Hamburger was the wealthy son-in-law of the diarist Gluekl of Hameln) prepare his defense in the present publication. The historical background to the affair is presented by David Kaufmann in JHSET, v. 3, pages 102-125. The bibliographic confusion relating to the work is clarified by Nathan Isaacs in Journal of Jewish Bibliography (1939) pages 83-85. Both scholars attest to the unusually rarity of the Ma¿aseh Rav. . [Vinograd, Amsterdam (sic) 833; Roth, London 3]. The place of publication is according to Bibliotheca Anglo-Judaica, page 269, number 3 and Kiryat Sefer, year 14, 1937-1938, page 99. Vinograd lists it as published in Amsterdam. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Qualche sporadica gora e fioritura. Bell'esemplare. Seconda edizione della prima e della seconda, prima edizione della terza e della quarta parte (il primo libro non reca l'anno di stampa al frontespizio, ma è del 1707; il secondo reca l'indicazione del 1707; il terzo è nell'edizione originale del 1681, dello stesso stampatore, mentre il quarto, anch'esso in edizione originale, ["nunc primum in luced editum"] è del 1686) della più importante opera di diritto delle acque del XVII secolo, monumentale trattato sugli acquedotti, i canali ed i corsi d'acqua, la regolazione dei fiumi, l'idraulica, i trasporti fluviali, i laghi, ecc., pubblicato sotto gli auspici del Senato di Milano. Dell'opera (la cui edizione originale apparve tra il 1670 e il 1686) largamente si avvalse Gian Domenico Romagnosi nei suoi trattati intorno "Alla ragione civile delle acque" e da essa fece iniziare il moderno diritto delle acque il noto giurista Sebastiano Gianzana. Il Pecchi, o Pecchio (Battuda, Pavia, 1639-Pavia, 1692) fu professore di diritto canonico a Pavia dal 1659 al 1687 ed Arcidiacono della Cattedrale pavese, nella quale è sepolto; il suo nome ha rinomanza nella storia della giurisprudenza soprattutto in quanto padre della moderna legislazione sulle acque con il presente trattato e per l'altra sua estesa opera "Tractatus de Servitutibus in genere". "Questi è per me il vero inauguratore del giure sulle acque. Fu egli invero che radunò i materiali sparsi nei varii statuti, nelle singolari decisioni dei giureconsulti e dei magistrati municipali e collegandole in un sistema. Disciplinò i rapporti nascenti dalle acque in modo che l&#146;interesse particolare avesse il suo tornaconto, il sociale conseguisse il suo scopo. [leggendo le opere di lui] ciascuno potrà a meno di ammirare la potenza di quella mente, la quale nel dubbio difficilmente errò, gettandosi facilmente nel lato ove stava il senno comune." (Gianzana). Fontana, Bibliotheca Legalis, II, 68-69. Riccardi, II, 254: "Emporio ricco, ma poco ordinato, di cognizioni utili al giureconsulto ed al tecnico relative alla scienza delle acque". Sapori, I, 2272. Sotheran, First Supplement, 6874: "Rare". Cfr. Mariano Mariani, F. M. P., Pavia, 1898. Mixed copy of the first and second editions. Complete. [Attributes: First Edition]
