        Archaiologia Britannica, giving some account additional to what has been hitherto publish'd of the languages, histories and customs of the original inhabitants of Great Britain: from collections and observations in travels through Wales, Cornwal, Bas-Bretagne, Ireland and Scotland. Vol. I Glossography.

      The author, Oxford, 1707. Title page with engraving of Oxford's Sheldonian Theatre, 2p list of subscribers, dedications, 436 pp and index. Half-morocco with marbled boards and end papers. Label on spine with gilt lettering. Some foxing on tp but otherwise mainly bright and clean. Copperplate signature on flyleaf and book plates in the name of George John Smith of Treliske, Truro, Cornwall. Edward Lhuyd (1660-1707), born near Oswestry, was a Welsh scholar at Jesus College, Oxford, and Curator of the Ashmolean Museum. From 1695 to 1701 he travelled exhaustively through the Celtic countries; this volume (only v. I was published) is the result. In many ways Lhuyd anticipated the methods of modern comparative linguistics. His book is also a fascinating source of material on late Cornish, still spoken when Lhuyd made his journey, and of course on the other languages studied. A fine example of this seminal work.

        Nouvelle Maniere pour lever l'Eau par la Force du Feu

      One folding engraved plate. 64 pp. 8vo, cont. polished calf (foot of spine a little chipped, browned as usual), spine richly gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Kassel: J. Estienne, 1707. First edition and a book of considerable rarity. By 1695, Papin had left his teaching position at Marburg and was given a place in the court of the Landgrave of Hesse in Kassel. Here he continued to devise a number of pumps and to work on steam pressure. "In 1705, Papin heard from Leibniz of Savery's engine, and received from him a sketch of it. In 1707 Papin published [in the present work] details of a new engine, a modified Savery engine -- not a modified Huygens' engine, as his previous one was...In 1707 Papin used his steam engine (originally conceived as a pumping engine) to drive a model boat on the river Fulda at Cassel; the pumping engine forcing up water to turn a water-wheel, which drove the paddles."-Wolf, A History of Science, Technology, and Philosophy, I, p. 550. Apart from the inevitable browning, a fine copy. In our copy there is a cancel label pasted to the title below "Feu." which corrects the reading to: "Mise en lumiere par mr. D. Papin" with a further cancel label pasted over the "mr." ❧ D.S.B., X, pp. 292-93. En Français dans le Texte 135-"C'est en 1698 que Papin faisait ses expériences, mais il n'en publia les résultats qu'en 1707, et déjà Savery et Newcomen avaient établi leur première machine à vapeur. Papin convient dans son ouvrage que les Anglais étaient arrivés aux mêmes résultats par les mêmes moyens. Toutefois ses communications insérées notamemment dans les Acta eruditorum de Leipzig, lui assurent une priorité incontestable." .

        Buffon's Natural History. Containing a Theory of the Earth, a General History of the Earth, a General History of Man, of the Brute Creation and of Vegetables, Minerals, &c. &c.

      Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte de Buffon (1707-1788) was a French naturalist, mathematician, biologist, cosmologist and author. Buffon's views and work influenced the next two generations of naturalists during a critical period in the development of human knowledge and conception of the natural world.  Charles Darwin, in a forward to his Origin of Species, stated that "the first author who in modern times has treated it in a scientific spirit was Buffon."  It should be remarked that, like many sages before and after him, Buffon was not universally prescient.  He argued that the Americas were lacking in large and powerful creatures, and that even the people were less virile than their European counterparts. An affronted Thomas Jefferson arranged to have the carcass of a bull moose sent to Paris for Buffon as proof of the virility of New World quadrupeds (and bipeds as well).  Here is a 10 volume matched set of Buffon's ambitiously comprehensive discourse on natural science, with varying publication dates (4 vols published in 1807, 2 published in 1810, 2 published in 1811, and 2 published in 1812).  All are bound in the original half leather over marbled boards with leather corners.  The set is in very good condition overall considering the age and original bindings.  The bindings all show shelf wear, but all of the boards remain firmly attached with square and tight bindings.  All of the contents are clean, tight, and complete, including the many hand-colored plates.

        Histoire de la Virginie

      Amsterdam: Chez Thomas Lombrail, 1707. Full Calf. Near Fine. 12mo; [4], 432, [16]pp, plus 14 finely executed plates (based on the engravings from the first part of Theodor De Bry's Grand Voyages) and a folding table. Engraved title page, with the coat of arms of Virginia, precedes the printed title page. Translated from the English ("The history and present state of Virginia, in four parts," first published in 1705). Contemporary full calf, the spine, in six compartments, very richly gilt with a red morocco label lettered in gilt. A very handsome, well-preserved copy Sabin 5116. Howe B-410. OCLC no. 5828565. First French Edition (with a new title page) of the first history of the Virginia colony "penned by a native and the best contemporary account of its aboriginal tribes and the life of its early settlers." (Howes) Sabin calls Beverley the "best authority," affording the "most vivid, comprehensive, instructive, and entertaining picture of Virginia at the date of his writing" and quotes Pinkerton: "A work of considerable merit." Beverley's History, one of the most outspoken books of Americanism before the War of Independence, satirized the ‘Rapacious and Arbitrary’ English governors and objected to the ‘heavy Impositions’ put upon the American colonies by the English, while celebrating Virginia's history and laws, featuring stories of early Virginia—including the Lost Colony and Pocahontas saving Captain John Smith—which became standard features of American history. Even so, large parts of the History derived from existing sources, though Beverley often gave even the borrowed material his own interpretation. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        The History of Tom Jones, A Foundling

      Henry Fielding (1707-1754) was an English novelist and dramatist. Here is a lovely copy of the first edition, second printing of this seminal English novel. In the Harvard Classics volumes Gordon Gerould summarizes 'Tom Jones' thus: "As to the stupendous achievement of the novel there can be no question. Beyond all cavil it is supremely great. By the very might of its revelation of human nature it disarms criticism and tempts to the use of the superlative... The merit of it consists in the performance of what Fielding in his prefatory chapter promised to give the reader: 'The provision then which we have here made is no other than HUMAN NATURE. In like manner, the excellence of the mental entertainment consists less in the subject than in the author’s skill in well dressing it up.' In other words, 'Tom Jones' is great because it pictures real men and women, and because its craftsmanship is marvelous". The second printing was issued in April 1749, two months after the first printing.  Cross describes it thus: "Immediate revision was rendered imperative on account of the numerous errors that crept into the text owing to the haste with which the novel had been at last put through the press...  type and paper are the same and the paging is kept uniform with the edition having the errata... The table of contents is re-spaced so as to extend into the page formerly given to the errata... scores of individual pages differ either in the number of lines or in the last words and phrases".  The copy offered here is identified as a second printing by the following specific bibliographic points. Volume I lacks the errata slip, and the table of contents expands to fill the previously unnumbered page with page xliii. The errata listed in the first printing are corrected.  The first printing cancels are not present at II(N12), III(H8, H9,H10, M3 & Q11), and V(N8).  Vols II and IV have the second printing free endpapers.   This copy is in very good plus condition.  The original calf boards have been retained with professional rebacking, which has reused the original red leather title panels. Each volume has the bookplate of Douglas Maxwell Moffat to the front pastedown. Moffat (1881-1956) was the U.S. Ambassador to Australia, appointed by President Eisenhower in February 1956, just a few months before his death.  There are a few pencil notations to the pastedowns.  Otherwise the contents are exceptionally nice - clean and undamaged with no foxing. A previous bookseller has pasted an inaccurate description to the rear pastedown of volume one.  Additional images are available on request.

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?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.

A very rare map taken from Coronelli?s "Teatro della Guerra diviso in XXXXVIII parti" published in Venice (though the front page says Naples) between 1706 and 1709. The collection contains hundreds of views, geographic maps and sea charts depicting the entire world. Ermanno Ermao, who studied Coronelli?s production, wrote "it is not easy to determine how many and which are the volumes that belong to the collection ". The volume that describes the Kingdom of Naples has been published in 1707. Some of the maps derive from those already published in the Isolario in 1696, with minor changes; nonetheless, the majority of the views has been realized exclusively for this collection.

La raccolta comprende centinaia di vedute, carte geografiche e nautiche di tutte le parti del mond. Come scrive Ermanno Ermao, grande studioso del Coronelli, "non è facile stabilire quanti e quali sono i volumi che compongono la raccolta". Il volume sul Regno di Napoli viene pubblicato nel 1707. Alcune carte derivano da quelle già incluse nel testo del Isolario del 1696, con alcune varianti; la maggior parte delle vedute viene tuttavia realizzata appositamente per l'opera. Incisione in rame, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Rarissima. A very rare map taken from Coronelli?s "Teatro della Guerra diviso in XXXXVIII parti" published in Venice (though the front page says Naples) between 1706 and 1709. The collection contains hundreds of views, geographic maps and sea charts depicting the entire world. Ermanno Ermao, who studied Coronelli?s production, wrote "it is not easy to determine how many and which are the volumes that belong to the collection ". The volume that describes the Kingdom of Naples has been published in 1707. Some of the maps derive from those already published in the Isolario in 1696, with minor changes; nonetheless, the majority of the views has been realized exclusively for this collection. Copper engraving, in perfect condition. Extremely rare. Venezia Venice 180 130

        A Parallel of the Antient Architecture With the Modern

      London 1707. Binding: Hardback. 'In a Collection of Ten Principal Authors who have Written upon the Five orders, viz Palladio and Scamozzi, Serlio and Vignola, D. Barbero and Cataneo, L.B. Alberti and Viola, Bullant and de Lorme, Compared with one another. Written in French by Roland Freart, Sieur de Chambray; Made English for the Benefit of Builders. To which is added an account of Architects and Architecture, in an Historical and Etymological Explanation of certain Terms particularly affected by Architects. With Leon Baptista Alberti's Treatise of Statues. By John Evelyn Esq., Fellow of the Royal Society'. Condition: Restored and rebacked, modern quarter leather on marbled boards. Small knick to leather of spine, on front cover. New end papers; title page backed. Some marginal graffiti esp p 48, probably late eighteenth or early nineteenth century, and elaborate drawings- in fact, exercises in draftmanship- to blank pages and some margins (eg p82), clearly by a student using the work rather than an idle book-defacer. Some soiling; occasional damp stains. Some page edges ragged. This carefully-restored book has clearly had serious use, but has been rescued and now represents a good copy of this scarce work. Text and plates of the main work (Evelyn's translation of Freart) are complete; Evelyn's Account of Architects and Architecture is complete. Alberti's Treatise is missing one leaf (page 69-70). Photos on request. Overall Very Good.

        Archaeologia Britannica Giving some account additional to what has been hitherto publish'd of the languages, histories and customs of the original inhabitants of Great Britain: from collections and observations in travels through Wales, Cornwal, Bas-Bretagne, Ireland and Scotland. Vol. I Glossography.

      Printed at the Theater for the Author,Oxford, 1707. Title page with engraving of Oxford's Sheldonian Theatre, 2p list of subscribers, dedications, 436 pp and index. Contemporary tooled leather boards, spine rebacked with 5 raised bands and gilt tooling. Interior clean and bright. Edward Lhuyd (1660-1707), born near Oswestry, was a Welsh scholar at Jesus College, Oxford, and Curator of the Ashmolean Museum. From 1695 to 1701 he travelled exhaustively through the Celtic countries; this volume (only v. I was published) is the result. In many ways Lhuyd anticipated the methods of modern comparative linguistics. His book is also a fascinating source of material on late Cornish, still spoken when Lhuyd made his journey, and of course on the other languages studied. An exceptional example of this seminal work

      Oxford, Eng., 1707. 2nd Edition. Very Good -. Although the title page states "Printed at the Theater" it does not include "And sold by Jonah Bowyer" as is the case with other copies described in library records. ESTC T186568. [12], 145, [7] p.: engraved title vignette, 9 leaves of engraved plates (5 folded); 20 cm. 8vo. Signatures: a2 b4 A-T4. Full contemporary calf with 5 spine compartments between raised bands. The leather over the boards was added somewhat later (still 18th century) and is decorated in the Cambridge style, that is, having a stained central rectangle, a plain rectangular frame, and a stained outside border. A double blind rule borders each section with a blind-tooled decoration at the outer corners. In the center of the outer edge of each plain section is a small curved section that also was sprinkled. Inscription on front free endpaper: "E. Cooke, Nevington." Oval stamp of Homerton College Society at head of title page. Homerton College is now one of the colleges of Cambridge University. Front fixed endpaper bears a bookplate reading "Bibliotheca Novi Collegii Londinensis" (Library of the New College of London). Back endpapers bear an index written in an old hand. The author of this book, Henry Maundrell, was the chaplain of the Levant Company (an English trading company also known as the Turkey Company) at Aleppo from 1696 to his death in 1701. The first edition of his account of his 1697 journey to Jerusalem was published in 1703, two years after his death. His narrative describes the Easter pilgrimage to Jerusalem and back made by Maundrell and fourteen others in 1697. They travelled across northern Syria to Latakia and down the coast to Acre, arriving in Jerusalem for the Latin Easter. They then visited the valley of the Jordan and Bethlehem before returning to Jerusalem for the Eastern churches' Easter. Finally they returned to Aleppo by way of Damascus and Tripoli. This account became the most famous of those written by European travellers of the Holy Land in the period. In Very Good- Condition: leather is rubbed, most significantly at corners; slight loss of leather at ends of spine; leather over boards is crackling; front free endpaper is detached but present; pages and plates are clean and tight. Very scarce without the bookseller notation.

Binding with some overall wear causing darkening of the leather and wear to the blindstamping, but professionally restored as neatly as possible. First title-page with a bit of minor dust-soiling, but otherwise internally nice, clean, and well preserved. Armorial bookplate of George Kenyon to pasted down front end-paper (bookplate cut at edges). 142, (2, - advertisements) pp. + 60 pp.. Rare first editions of Locke's important commentaries on St. Paul's letter to the Romans and to the Ephesians respectively, two important works closely related to his general philosophical and political outlook, and more specifically connected to his work on tolerance."Before his death, Locke wrote instructions for his cousin and heir Peter King regarding certain unpublished works. The first of these posthumous publications to appear was a set of "paraphrase and notes" on the Epistles of St. Paul, the fruits of Locke's biblical studies during his later years and of his disputes with Edwards and Stillingfleet. The paraphrases of each of the five Epistles were brought out separately between 1705 and 1707, then reissued with a collective title page and an introductory essay in which Locke explained his method of reading and interpreting St. Paul. A paraphrase and notes was frequently reprinted during the eighteenth century and had several imitators." (Locke Bibliography)With his commentaries on the two letters of St. Paul, Locke sets out to bring forth a Christianity that is both reasonable and tolerant. He focuses on the difficulties of interpretation of the letters and criticizes previous interpretations, calling for a new method of interpretation that is based on reasoning. Thus, the present works are of great interest to the study of Locke's philosophy and thought in general and are of paramount importance to the understanding of his thoughts on Christianity.
