Juan Alvarez de Colmenar]
[ALVAREZ DE COLMENAR, Juan]. Beschryving van Spanjen en Portugal. Leyde, Pieter van der Aa, 1707. In-folio whole leather bound, 5 parts in 1 volume: fx-t., front., t., 4ff., 80 pp., 84 pp., 128 pp., 52 pp., 56 pp., 32 unnumbered ff. Original edition of the translation into Dutch of « Les Délices de l'Espagne et du Portugal », printed same year by the same publisher, Pieter van der Aa (1659 -1733), best known for his work on maps and atlases. Using the same copper engravings as for the original edition, captions into the plates are in French, the international language at the time, while text is in Dutch. If description of the Iberian Peninsula is accurate and full of picturesque details, one must have a particular attention to the engravings. Thanks to the mastery of the printing, the engravings offer remarkable details on many cities, buildings and landscapes of Spain and Portugal, as they appear to the traveller at the turn of the 17th Century. Some precious engravings show scarce scenes: tuna fishing in Cadix, procession of the pilgrims to Compostelle, Basque women going to church, punishment of voluntary cucklods in Seville (!), the way inquisition makes trials, procession of the autodafe, condemned persons by the inquisition burning to the stake, etc. The book is illustrated with a frontispiece, a vignette on title page and dedicatory plate by J. Goerée, a large fold-out plate of Spain and Portugal, a fold-out panorama of Barcelona and 165 large copper engravings in text. Fair to good overall condition: corners are rubbed, little pieces of leather lacking on the back, … [Click Below for Full Description]

broadside, half-sheet, oblong folio, measuring 11 ½ by 7 ¼ inches, printed on laid, watermarked paper, paper lightly browned, else very good. The earliest known retail liquor license at least for New York City, printed by William Bradford who was the royal printer in New York during the reign of Queen Anne, 1702-1714, and the onlyprinter working in New York during that time. Bradford (1663-1752) was the "pioneering printer of the English middle colonies", and set up the first press in Pennsylvania in 1685, and the first in New York, where he resettled in 1693. (DAB). This broadside was meant to be completed in manuscript. The text makes clear that both men and women were eligible to be licensed tavern keepers, the blanks could either he completed, his, or hers. This is styled "in the reign of ... Anne ... Queen of Great Britain..." which would place it between 1707 when Great Britain was created under the Acts of Union between England and Scotland, and 1714, within the second decade of New York printing. The broadside is interesting because the license was not granted solely as means of taxation, but its broader purpose, as stated within the text, was a means of social control, the suppression of gambling, politically disruptive "meetings" etc. OCLC lists four holdings (NYPL, LCP, AAS, NYHS).

Lievi e naturali bruniture, tipiche della carta tedesca del tempo, peraltro esemplare ben conservato. Heinrich Caspar Horn (1657-1718), giuspubblicista tedesco allievo di Samuel Stryck, scrisse numerosi responsa e trattati di diritto feudale. Quest'opera è dedicata alle principali tappe del diritto pubblico imperiale con attenzione particolare rivolta ai principali trattati di pace che interessarono nel Seicento Spagna, Francia ed appunto l'impero. Verosimilmente edizione originale. Cfr. Kvk. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The ornithological section of Buffon's famous Histoire naturelle, with the first 8 volumes in the first edition and the 9th volume in the new edition published in Amsterdam and Dordrecht, the only quarto edition to rival the original French Imprimerie Royale edition.''A great number of species are enumerated and described in this work, which is one of the chief works of ornithological literature'' (Anker). The birds are dealt with under their vernacular names. ''The collaborator for the first six volumes of the text was Ph. Guéneau de Montbeillard, who also wrote the section "Hirondelles" in vol. VII. The Abbé G.L.C.A. Bexon then assisted with the remainder of the bird section, so that Montbeillard could devote himself entirely to the insects'' (Anker).Georges Louis Leclerc (1707-1788) -- in 1717 his father became Comte de Buffon and Louis XV later made Georges Comte de Buffon -- was an inconspicuous student who only showed a special talent for mathematics. Initially he combined a career in finance with one in science, translating important works by Hales and Newton into French. In 1739 Buffon became director of the Jardin du Roi, later the Jardin des Plantes, and the Histoire naturelle may have originated as a description of the royal collection. It appeared from 1749 to 1804 and eventually comprised 44 volumes. Buffon was assist … [Click Below for Full Description]

DE LA CROIX, François Pétis.
Paris: widow of Claude Barbin, 1707. Duodecimo in fours and eights (159 x 92 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, spine gilt in compartments. Gilt bookplate of French physician and bibliophile Tibulle Desbarreaux-Bernard (1798-1880) to the front free endpaper; contemporary ownership inscription ("Simon Chirury") and later ink-stamp ("E. T. Simon, D. T") to title page. Binding expertly refurbished, mild craquelure to spine now stabilised, a few faint scores to rear board, pastedowns abraded in places, revealing lining made from a contemporary manuscript to the rear, upper-outer corners of text-block faintly creased, small tear to G1 costing a few letters either side, the sense unimpaired, spill-burn to I6, short closed tear to fore edge Dd2, a few other light marks. A very good copy. First edition of this important collection of oriental tales now known as the Forty Viziers, published three years after Galland's first edition of the Thousand and One Nights, and following its characteristic frame-narrative structure. Notably rare: one copy traced at auction, one in British institutions (SOAS), and six worldwide; bibliographers including Chauvin and Macdonald claimed never to have seen a copy. A second edition with an Amsterdam imprint appeared later the same year and is similarly rare. An English translation was published by Tonson the year after. The frame-narrative echoes the Biblical story of Potiphar's Wife, concerning a young prince who refuses the advances of his stepmother, who then denounces him to the sultan. The prince is put on trial, by means of alternate tales told … [Click Below for Full Description]

ARTIFICES]
éprouvés par Mr Borval [sic], artificier du Roy. Manuscrit. S.l.n.d., [XVIIIe siècle], petit in-4 (23,4 x 16 cm), broché, couvertures muettes de l'époque. 1 f. de titre, 34 pp.ch. et 4 pp.n.ch. de table. Mémoire très détaillé sur les différentes formes d?artifices et leurs recettes, mises au point par un artificier du Roi. Les sujets traités sont : manière de connaître le salpêtre, et de faire la poudre; sur l?utilisation du charbon, du moule, de la culasse, des baguettes à rouler et des cartouches; composition pour faire des fusées volantes; des baguettes, de l?éclatante, des fusées à 2 ou 3 volées et des jumelles; de la flamboyante; fusée qui porte Vive le Roi pour garniture, fusée qui porte une girandole, un soleil fixe ou un soleil tournant; fusées qui imitent l?éclair et le tonnerre; des lardons, fougues, étoiles, pluie de feu, marrons, étoiles à jets; du globe pour garnir une fusée; sur les lances à feu, les globes luisants, les rougeons; sur l?étoile à l?italienne, etc.; suivis de la manière de faire les mèches et d'autres compositions de fusées volantes, pots à feu, dragon volant, etc. L'artificier mentionné au début du mémoire est très vraisemblablement Jean-Charles PERRINET D'ORVAL, né à Sancerre en 1707, mort vers 1780, auteur de plusieurs ouvrages de pyrotechnie dans lesquels Diderot et d'Alembert ont puisé pour leurs articles de l'Encyclopédie. Ces ouvrages sont : Essai sur les feux d'artifice (Paris, 1745), Traité des feux d'artifice pour le spectacle et pour la guerre (Berne, 1750) et Manuel de l'artificier (Neuchâtel, 1755).
