        Relazione del Paese de' Svizzeri, e loro alleati d'Arminio Annebuchi.

      presso Andrea Poletti,, in Venezia, 1708 - In-8° (175x118mm), pp. (18), 256, cartonatura coeva alla rustica con titolo manoscritto in antico al dorso. Fregio ornamentale inciso al frontespizio. Fregi tipografici incisi su legno. Qualche goretta sporadica. Ottima copia in barbe. Prima edizione di questa illustrazione storico-topografica dell'intero territorio elevetico, frutto delle missioni diplomatiche che vi aveva svolto il Bianchi (celato sotto lo pseudonimo "Arminio Dannebuchi"). "Tornato a Venezia per qualche tempo a riprendervi le sue mansioni di funzionario ripartì nel marzo del 1705 per una lunga e difficile missione in terra svizzera e nei Grigioni allo scopo di concludervi un'alleanza: dopo un primo passaggio per Coira, rimase a Zurigo fino alla fine di gennaio dell'anno seguente; tornato a Coira nel febbraio del 1706, vi rimase fino alla fine della sua missione, il 28 settembre 1707, data del suo ultimo dispaccio. Oltre alla sua corrispondenza diplomatica, rimangono documentati a stampa i risultati ottenuti dal Bianchi nella sua missione, conclusasi con un trattato d'alleanza tra Venezia e i cantoni di Zurigo e Berna del 12 genn. 1706 e un altro con i Grigioni del 17 dicembre dello stesso anno. Ma la testimonianza certo più importante e duratura dei lunghi mesi trascorsi dal Bianchi in terra svizzera si ebbe un anno più tardi in un suo intelligente libro, quella Relazione del paese de' Svizzeri, e loro alleati, che il residente veneto diede alle stampe a Venezia presso il Poletti nel 1708, firmandosi con lo pseudonimo di Arminio Dannebuchi. Nella sua premessa, rivolgendosi al lettore, il B. affermava d'aver scritto l'operetta per suo solo piacere, e d'averla poi data alle stampe per la "grande, e quasi totale penuria d'autori" sull'argomento. Ordinato e semplice nella sua scrittura, che rivela il mestiere dei diplomatico e dell'osservatore per professione, privo di entusiasmi e di originali curiosità, ma attento alle cose fondamentali e assai preciso nell'informazione, l'autore, dopo una descrizione geografica e un succinto quadro storico delle vicende di quelle terre, trattava per esteso della situazione politica dei vari cantoni. Una seconda edizione dell'opera uscì a Venezia nel 1719 riveduta e corretta dall'autore, una traduzione inglese, An account of Switzerland,and the Grisons: as also of the Valesians,Geneva. made English from the Italian original, a Londra presso Knapton nel 1710; una traduzione francese, testimoniata dal Giornale de' letterati di Venezia (XXXI [1718], p. 437), è rimasta per noi introvabile."

      London, for R. Knaplock, J. Sprint, R. Smith, and J. Round, 1708. - 8vo. XX, III-VIII, XI-XIV, (4), 391, (21) pp. Contemp panelled calf with giltstamped red label to gilt spine; leading edges gilt. Edges sprinkled in red. First edition of the author's most famous work. The orientalist Simon Ockley (1678-1720) was educated at Queens' College, Cambridge. He became fellow of Jesus College and vicar of Swavesey, and in 1711 was chosen Arabic professor of the university. His "'History of the Saracens' long enjoyed a great reputation; unfortunately Ockley took as his main authority a MS. in the Bodleian of Pseudo-Wakidi's 'Futúh al-Shám', which is rather historical romance than history. He also translated from the Arabic the Second Book of Esdras" (Enc. Brit.). A second volume appeared in 1718. - This copy includes 2 slightly different versions of the dedication to Henry Aldrich: the second, omitting his designation as 'One of Her Majesty's Chaplain in Ordinary', and containing other changes, is inserted in the preface. - Old ms. dates on t. p.

        Georgius Dionysius Ehret

      [Nuremberg], [n.d.]. Mezzotint, on laid paper. Cut to the edge of the image and laid down at an early date. Print size: 15 3/4 x 10 3/8 inches. Mount size: 20 1/2 x 14 inches. An important mezzotint portrait by Johann Jakob Haid, of one of the greatest 18th botanical artists, after an original portrait by Heckell. Johann Jakob Haid came from a German family of artists and printmakers. Haid worked initially with the animal painter Johann Elias Ridinger, but he soon went on to found a well-known publishing house in Augsburg. This portrait is from a series which pictured those most closely involved in the publication of Trew's Plantae Selectae , and was originally bound into that great botanical work. Georg Dionysius Ehret (1708-70) was the son of a Heidelberg gardener, whose predilection for and talent for drawing flowers allowed him to escape from garden labor to a wide circle of aristocratic acquaintance in Germany, Paris and England, where he settled in 1736. He was made a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1757.

        Campanula. Ink and watercolor drawing with autograph manuscript caption.

      - Haller, Albrecht (1708-77). Campanula. Ink and watercolor drawing with autograph manuscript caption. N.p., n.d. 312 x 202 mm. Small pin-holes in left margin and lower right corner, a few tiny marginal tears, remains of mounting tabs on verso. Inscription in French on the verso in an unidentified hand identifying the drawing as by Haller. An original botanical drawing by the great Swiss scientist Haller, who made fundamental contributions to botany as well as to anatomy and physiology. In an effort to create "a complete, encyclopedic science of Swiss flora" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography), Haller published a major treatise on the subject, Historia stirpium indigenarum Helvetiae inchoate (1768), and amassed an herbarium of Swiss plants that is still used today. He corresponded with Linnaeus on the problem of nomenclature, seeking an alternative to Linnaus's binary nomenclature and sexual system of classification.Haller's drawing is of a species of campanula (bellflower). His caption, written in Latin, reads: "CAMPANULA foliis cordato-lanceolatis, caule simplicissimo, foliis cordatis floribus secundis sparsis maxima foliis latissimis. CB.(?)" The words "foliis cordatis" have been crossed out and corrected in another hand to "C. latifolia." The unidentified French inscription on the verso reads: "Cette plante est dessiné et colorié par le grande Haller, ainsi que l'écriture est de sa main, verifiée par Mr. le Dr. Coindet qui a plusieurs autographes de Mr. Haller" [This plant was drawn and colored by the great Haller, and the writing is in his hand, verified by Dr. Coindet who has several autographs of Haller].

Bll. - Vorl. tabulare Chronologie reicht von Anni Mindi 100.000 (Mundi et Adami) bis 1717. - Aegidius Strauch (1632-1682), lutherischer Theologe, studierte als erstes Geschichte, Mathematik und orientalische Sprachen, bevor er sich der Theologie widmete. Strauch entwickelte sich zu einem strengen Kritiker der Calvinisten, Synkretisten und Papisten; nach seinem Umzug nach Danzig 1669 als Pastor an der Trinitatiskirche und Rector des Athenäums, wurden seine Druckschriften diesbezüglich immer polemischer. Die lokale Geistlichkeit sah sich gezwungen, Strauch zu entlassen, nach dem er folgendes Prädikat zum Tod des Königs von Polen formulierte: "den außerhalb der wahren Kirche Seienden, von deren Bekehrung man nichts wisse, dürfe man diesen Titel nicht geben." Strauß wurde gefangengehalten bis 1678, wo er wegen der Zerwürfnisse mit der Danziger Geistlichkeit einen "Friedens"-Vertrag unterschreiben mußte. (vgl. ADB XXXVI, 525ff.)

        L'Amerique Septentrionale

      Pierre Schenk, Amsterdam 1708 - Schenk's rare derivative of De L'Isle's famed map. "In 1700, Claude and Guillaume D L'Isle [first] published their foundation map of North America. What better way to usher in the eighteenth century cartographically than with this significant and influential map. It encapsulates an era in which the French exemplified a reliance on scientific mapping and beautifully incorporated it into the earlier influence of decorative augmentation" (Burden). Tooley adds: "A foundation map. The Great Lakes based on Coronelli show the French strong points at Tadousac, Quebec, Fort Sorel, Montreal & Fort Frontenac. the English settlements confined to the east of the Alleghenies, with Fort and River Kinibeki as the border between New England and Acadia. The Mississippi valley area is shown well developed with the recent French settlement of d'Iberville at Bilochy and forts at Bon Secours and St. Louis. In this map De l'Isle corrected longitude positions and was the first to revert to a peninsula form of California." Perhaps most significantly, in the second and subsequent states of the map the mouth of the Mississippi is accurately shown for the first time, being the first map to depict information from the surveys of the D'Iberville expedition. Following the end of Renard's contract to sell De L'Isle's maps in Amsterdam, Petrus Schenk issued the present re-engraved derivative map of De l'Isle's original. Burden notes it to be "an almost exact derivative." Cf. Burden, The Mapping of North America 761; Tooley, "French Mapping of the Americas" 32 in Tooley, The Mapping of America. Copper-engraved map, full period hand-colouring.

Palau dice:"Según Latassa (Félix de Latassa y Ortín (Zaragoza, 1733 - 1805) fue el mayor de los bibliógrafos de las letras aragonesas) el autor es el padre jesuita Pascual Ranzón." =Cuenta la leyenda que Tarazona fue fundada por Tubal Caín, y reedificada por Hércules. Así reza en el escudo de la ciudad: «TubalCain me aedificavit. Hércules me reaedificavit». En la Hispania romana Tarazona recibió el nombre de Turiaso, siendo una próspera ciudad de derecho romano llegando a acuñar moneda propia. Fue una de las fortalezas visigodas más importantes frente a los vascones. Tras la toma de La Aljafería de Zaragoza en 1118, las tropas cristianas vencieron en las proximidades de Tarazona al ejército musulmán que acudía en ayuda de Zaragoza. Reconquistada Tarazona en 1119 por Alfonso I de Aragón, la ciudad se convirtió en sede episcopal. A la muerte de este monarca, Alfonso VII de Castilla ocupó Tarazona&#151;aunque poco después retornó a manos aragonesas. Tarazona quedó emplazada como ciudad fronteriza entre Castilla, Navarra y Aragón, cobrando especial importancia estratégica. En la Guerra de Sucesión, Tarazona se puso bajo la bandera del que sería el futuro monarca, Felipe V, quien en 1707 recompensó la fidelidad de la ciudad con una serie de privilegios.
