(WHISKY.)
1707. London: , 17981803. Folio (430 x 263 mm). Contemporary half calf, titles in gilt on red morocco spine labels, raised bands ruled in gilt, marbled boards. Text in double column. Engraved hand-coloured folding map, 11 engraved plates depicting distillery apparatus, tables throughout. Binding expertly restored, labels renewed, a little rubbed,internally browned, and with scattered foxing; a very good copy. First collected edition of these fifteen parliamentary reports, including Sylvester Douglas's indispensable two-part survey of the Scottish whisky industry, and three further reports, together illustrating the culmination of parliament's continued attempts to regulate the Scottish distilleries over the course of the eighteenth century following the Act of the Union in 1707. First is a series of three reports submitted by William Eden between 24 December 1783 and 23 March 1784 and discussing the smuggling of various commodities, including whisky. The first of these three also touches on "frauds in the internal duties on brewery, distillery, malt"; the second focuses on Scotland, demonstrating "both the forcible and piratical practices, as also the inland smuggling of foreign goods", and outlines details regarding exemption from and evasion of distillery duties; the third proposes methods of preventing the smuggling trade, and gives a list of bounties, premiums and allowances. The year, 1784, saw the introduction of the Wash Act, one of the formative moments in the history of the distilleries. It lowered whisky duties in England and the Scottish Lowlands, but maintaine … [Click Below for Full Description]

Robins, Benjamin
First edition of the text that made ballistics a Newtonian science. Author Benjamin Robins (1707-1751) was one of the leading Newtonians of the 18th century, entering the public eye at age twenty when he published his demonstration of the final proposition of Newton's treatise on quadratures in the Transactions of the Royal Society. In addition to public disputation on various aspects of Newtonian physics and mathematics, he was particularly interested in engineering applications, and studied "bridges, harbours, mills, and navigable rivers" before "fortifications and artillery emerged as his central engineering concern" (ODNB). Robins applied for a post at the Royal Military Academy at Woolwich and, though unsuccessful, the course material he prepared became the basis for the present work. "New Principles of Gunnery transformed ballistics into a Newtonian science. Galileo's vacuum theory was the only practical theory before 1742, but only for low-velocity mortars as demonstrated in Bélidor's Le bombardier français (1731). Robins made it applicable for gunpowder weaponry in general. His key contribution was the invention and utilization of the ballistic pendulum. With Huygens's law of pendulum motion and Newton's law of linear momentum, he deduced the bullet's impact velocity from the subsequent swing angle. Robins then used the ballistic pendulum to verify his interior-ballistics theory, relying on Boyle's law, the thirty-ninth proposition from book one of the Principia, and the pneumatic chemistry techniques of Francis Hauksbee the elder and Stephen Hales. By applying Newt … [Click Below for Full Description]

Publisher's advertisement on verso of final leaf. Contemporary panelled calf, spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece.Provenance: Admiral George Carnegie, 6th Earl of Northesk (armorial bookplate)First edition of an influential early 18th century work on husbandry.Mortimer's The Whole Art of Husbandry forms a landmark in English agricultural literature, and largely influenced husbandry in the 18th century. The writer, an English merchant who owned the large estate of Topping Hall, Hatfield Peverel, Essex, states that he had read the best books on ancient and modern agriculture, and inspected the practice of the most diligent husbandmen in most countries. After duly summarizing these he had added his own experiences. The book, which treats not only of the usual branches of agriculture, but also of fish ponds, orchards, and of the culture of silkworms, and the making of cider, is said by Donaldson (1854) to "form a very large advancement in the progress of agriculture from the preceding authors on the subject." The work was dedicated to the Royal Society, of which Mortimer had been admitted a member in December 1705. A second edition was issued in 1708, and a third in 1712.

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.

Some pale spotting, first few leaves with marginal dampstain and a few small marginal losses, covers lightly soiled. Item #402992 FIRST EDITION of Garofalo's heterodox study of Greek and Jewish poetry. Garofalo was the first Neapolitan to enter the debate concerning Hebrew poetry at the beginning of the 18th century. "In the first decade of the century he was one of the few who dared to publish what he had learned from the ideas of Biblical criticism proposed by Spinoza and Richard Simon. [In this work] Garofalo dealt first with the explosive issue of the authority of the Hebrew Biblical text contending as had Spinoza and Simon, that it was in need of textual revision. He discussed the custom of all ancient peoples of preserving their laws in poetry. In the second part of the work he explained how Greek poets were expected to use popular fictions to persuade the uneducated to chose right behaviors. Such examples supported the Arcadian claim concerning the value of poetry in reforming the bad habits of people. On the issue of whether Hebrew used rhyme or rhythm Garofalo sided with the Protestant Le Clerc" (Harold Samuel Stone, Vico's Cultural History: The Production and Transmission of Ideas in Naples, New York, 1997, p. 198).

He substantiated his arguments with a mass of statistical documentation practically unprecedented and, in doing so, pioneered the use of statistics in economics. The idea, which occurred to Vauban as he made observations on his constant travels throughout the kingdom, was intended to help France overcome an economic crisis and keep its rank as a great power. As the situation worsened, in 1706 Vauban had his book secretly printed in François Maurry's Rouen press and gave his entourage the first copies, bound in Paris at the widow Fétil's. The French government, too deeply committed to the system of tax farming (i.e., selling the right to collect taxes to groups of financiers for a fixed sum), was reluctant and even unable to revoke the exemp … [Click Below for Full Description]

(HATMAKERS, Antwerp Guild of.)
[Antwerp, 1707. Manuscript, small folio (310 × 200 mm), 62 leaves bearing text (usually on both sides), numerous blanks at rear. Text in Dutch throughout, usually legible. Original parchment wallet binding with overlapping flap, title in bold calligraphic manuscript to upper cover. Quite soiled, minor loss to vellum at spine and fore-edge, wanting ties, but essentially sound. An eighteenth-century account book of the guild of hatmakers in the city of Antwerp, covering nearly 70 years. The Antwerp hatmakers were an important craft organization with a well-regulated structure. Their accounts were overseen by aldermen, each serving for several years, who recorded income (usually in the the form of entry fines for new members) and expenditure (usually payment for the guilds officials). One of the major expenditures was the payment of the 'proefmeesters' who exercised quality control by examining the products of prospective entrants before admitting them to membership. The accounts provide a detailed record of the names of entrants to the guild and of guild officials. They also provide much incidental detail of the position of the craft within the regional economy, with frequent expenditures recording contact with the neighbouring towns of Brussels, Mechelen and Bruges. .

[ANCILLON, Charles].
?Berlin, [, 1707. 12mo (160 × 88 mm), pp. [20], 187, [1], title with woodcut device (an armillary sphere). Quite spotted, title browned. Contemporary mottled sheep, gilt panelled spine, red morocco label. Rubbed, joints cracked but sound. Nineteenth-century bookplate (Docteur Ant[oine Constant] Danyau). 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 display'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. Gay III, 1239. Order directly from our website for free shipping worldwide.

POZZO. ANDREA. -- Sturt. John.
Benj. Motte. London. 1707. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION. Folio. (16.7 x 11.2 inches). Engraved frontispiece, two engraved title pages, one in English and one in Latin, full page engraving before the text and then 101 full page plates, numbered 1 to C but with 2 plates numbered LIIIA and LIIIB and 211 illustrated initials by Sturt. Complete with the rare subscribers list, which shows just 130 names, including those of Nicholas Hawksmoor, Vanbrugh and Sir Christopher Wren. Armorial bookplate on the verso of the Latin title page, of Mountagu Garrard Drake (1692 - 1728) the Tory Member of parliament for Amersham in Buckinghamshire. A more recent owner has neatly written his name in black ink below this bookplate, also at the top of the English title page and the same person's mono illustrated bookplate, in the style of Aubrey Beardsley, is on the front paste down endpaper. A superior copy, the plate impressions strong and dark throughout and the pages crisp and clean. In an attractive contemporary binding of full panelled calf. Spotted lighter calf panel on both boards. The spine with raised bands, the compartments decorated in gilt. Burgundy title label, gilt. Some wear and splitting on the hinges to the top and bottom of the spine but overall a better than very good copy of this beautiful and uncommon work, the finest of the many editions of Pozzo's work and one of the most beautiful architectural books published.

VAUBAN (Maréchal S. Le Prestre de)
S.l., marque au Quaerendo, 1707, pl. veau brun époque, dos orné, coiffes et coins lég. usés. Bon exemplaire. Une des nombreuses contrefaçons à la date de l'édition originale. Le Projet d'une dixme royale du Maréchal de Vauban est un essai exceptionnel concernant les finances publiques. Afin de sortir des abus monstrueux du système de taxation existant à l'époque il proposait que la taille et la plupart des autres impôts soient remplacés par un impôt unique (une dime royale) consistant en un vingtième ou 5 % du produit de la terre. Ses ennemis déclarèrent que c'était impraticable... ¶ "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... 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 work, and a forerunner of modern tendencies" (J. A. Schumpeter, History of Economic Analysis, pp. 197-8) - Kress 2584-5 - Goldsmiths 4432 - En français dans le texte, 134 - INED, 4397.
