“IL ZANGRANDI” -- CARVAGLIO – Moses Baruch (d. 1762)
Hardcover. Good+. [Italy, possibly Piedmont, 17th century]. [181 leaves] (96 x 140mm). A pocket-sized copybook written in a uniform italic script in brown ink, recto only, on laid paper. Each page with double ruled border framing Latin verse lines from De rebus gestis Alexandri Magni (The Life and Exploits of Alexander the Great) by Quintus Curtius Rufus, with Italian translation, and proverbial sayings in Italian on miscellaneous subjects, signed intermittently “Il Zangrandi” or “Gioseppe Zangrandi.” Oblong contemporary sheep over pasteboard; (some slight worming mostly at beginning and end, some minor chips on spine and back cover, otherwise good). Ownership signature of Moses Baruch Carvaglio on the last leaf in Italian, “Io Moise filgiolo (sic) di Jacob di Josef Baruch Carvaglio” under an anecdotal note in his hand about an incident of extreme cold which froze over the lagoon and parts of the Venetian canal in 1708. An interesting 17th-century calligraphic copybook of excerpts from the great Roman history of Alexander the Great and with popular sayings written in Italian and Latin, once owned by important Venetian Jewish coral merchant Moses Baruch Carvaglio. The regal Alexandrian history "De rebus gestis Alexandri Magni" by Roman historian Quintus Curtius Rufus was much appreciated in Italy during the early modern period. Adaptations for Alexander romances and an incunable tradition was in place from at least the 1470s. The name “Il Zangrandi,” seemingly the writer of this collected verse, could be Virgilio Giangrandi (1589-1630), a Piemontese typographer active in S … [Click Below for Full Description]

DOCUMENTO MANUSCRITO. SIGLO XVIII. PLAZAS DE MELILLA, CEUTA, PEÑON DE ALHUCEMAS, MAZALQUIVIR
Copias de las diferentes cartas que el día 15 de Mayo de 1708 se cruzaron entre los Gobernadores, Comisario de la Guerra y Políticos responsables de las Plazas de Marruecos. Una primera copia de carta, fechada el 6 de Mayo de 1708 entre Fray Juan de la Madre de Dios y el Capitán Francisco Antonio Negrete, daba la alerta: "Amigo y Sr. mío, Hauiendo sauido que se previenen los Moros fuertemente para embestir a la Plaza de Melilla, es demi obligacion encargar a Vm[erce]d que enlas primeras embarcaciones que salgan para alla selo participe Vm[erce]d a aquel Gober[na]dor para queno le coja descuidado, y se pertreche de todo lo necesario para su defensa". Siguen todo el bloque de copias de las cinco cartas cruzadas el día 15 de mayo entre unos y otros: "El Comisario de Guerra Don Antonio Hurtado de Amezaga a Don Francisco de Monsalve Hurtado de Mendoza, Don Blas de Zea Merino a Don Francisco Monsalve Hurtado de Mendoza, éste último a Don Juan Antonio Hurtado de Amezaga, Don Francisco de Monsalve Hurtado de Mendoza a Don Juan de Elizondo". Parece ser que Don Blas de Zea Merino tenía una contraorden de S. M. por medio de Joseph de Grimaldo para que los vastimentos, municiones y enseres destinados a Mazarquibir fuesen llevados a Zeuta, así como los destinados a Melilla y Peñón, pues era más urgente la atención a Zeuta. La orden fue desestimada por el Gobernador de Mazarquibir. Estas cinco cartas parece que estaban "escritas para el correo" para ser enviadas por Don Juan de Monsalve Hurtado de Mendoza a Don Juan de Elizondo. Sigue una última copia de carta remitida por por Don Juan de Elizondo al Secretario de la Guerra y de Hacienda, Don Joseph Grimaldo, desde Madrid el 13 de julio de 1708, en la que le informa sobre los "chismes" y "cuentos" que el Veedor General de Zeuta, Don Carlos Fernández del Rivero, expone sobre los hechos acaecidos. El parecer de Don Juan de Elizondo es "que el veedor usa de demasiada aspereza con aquellos Naturales" y deja claro que no es amigo ni

Amsterdam, Johann Crellius, 1708. 3 tomes en 1 fort vol. grand in-folio, demi-maroquin La Vallière avec coins, dos à nerfs orné d'encadrements de triples filets à froid, filets à froid sur les plats, tête dorée. Reliure du XIXe s., qq. épidermures, coins émoussés. Exemplaire à grandes marges, entièrement monté sur onglets. Frontispice h.-t. dessiné et gravé par B. van Overbecke, 1 fig. allégorique h.-t. gravée par M. Bol, 1 portrait h.-t. de B. van Overbecke gravé à l'eau-forte, 1 plan h.-t. de la Rome antique à double page gravé à l'eau-forte par M. Pool, 146 planches h.-t. (dont 1 double) dessinées et gravées à l'eau-forte par B. van Overbecke, 33 vignettes (médailles) gravées en taille-douce dans le texte et 1 vignette (échelle de mesures romaines) gravée en taille-douce dans le texte, titres en rouge et noir ornés d'une vignette gravée en taille-douce, (12) ff., 87 pp.; (1) f., 73 pp.; (1) f., 61 pp. Quelques rares petites rousseurs. Edition originale. Cet ouvrage sur les restes de l'ancienne Rome est le fruit de trois voyages de Bonaventure van Overbecke au cours desquels il s'attacha à reproduire sans extrapoler l'ensemble des bâtiments remarquables de la Rome antique. Son propos n'est pas d'enjoliver la réalité mais bien de témoigner de l'état des ruines telles qu'on pouvait les observer à cette époque. Même si son exactitude documentaire ne va pas jusqu'à effectuer des relevés détaillés et topographiques, son oeuvre est novatrice et annonce les prémisses de la science des antiquités et de l'archéologie au sens moderne.

SCHEUCHZER, J.J.
Londini, H. Clements, 1708. 3 parts (bound in 1 volume). 4to (226 x 175mm). pp. (4), (2), 57, (1); (2), 72; (2), 22, with 1 engraved portrait (of Scheuchzer), 3 engraved frontispieces and 41 (2 folded & 1 partly coloured) engraved plates. Contemporary calf, spine with later rebacking. First edition, which was published at the expense of the Royal Society. It is interesting for its connection with Sir Isaac Newton - the frontispieces to the three parts having been printed at his expense. Johan Jacob Scheuchzer (1672-1733; physician and scientist in Zurich) was the first to travel in Switzerland with mathematical and physical instruments. From 1702 onwards he travelled in the Alps year for year. The results have been published in the above work, the first scientific research papers dealing with natural history, palaeontology, physics and glaciology - a science, which was established by him. The finely engraved plates of the work (all in clear and strong impressions) depict plants, machinery, watercourses, alpine walkways, minerals, etc. An important classic, containing "fascinating details of the mountain journeys that Scheuchzer made all over Switzerland including his thoughts on the movement of glaciers" (Hoover 718). There is a general title to the book and part titles to the three parts.//Ward & Carozzi 1966.

[La Roque, Jean de].
8vo. XII, 312 pp. With folding map and 3 plates. Later binding in contemporary panelled style mit red morocco label to gilt spine. The rare first English edition of this conflation of reports from French expeditions to Arabia during the years 1708-13, first published in French in 1716. "It was with distinct literary skill that La Roque, who himself had visited Syria in 1689, prepared a construed travel report from the notes of various members of the first French expeditions to Arabia and Yemen. The 'Travels to Happy Arabia' well suited the tastes of the time. The well-founded knowledge which La Roque owed to the observations of Captain Merveille and his companions allowed him to provide the first detailed account of Arabic coffee plantations and the coffee trade of the Peninsula" (cf. Schnyder/v. Waldkirch, Wie Europa den Kaffee entdeckte, p. 207f.). The Atabey copy sold at Sotheby's in 2002 (lot 1473) commanded £2,868. - Occasional duststaining, but well-preserved altogether. Provenance: from the library of William Alfred Eddy (1896-1962) with his armorial bookplate ("Crux mihi grata quies" - The Cross is to me a welcome rest) on pastedown. The Sidon-born Eddy, fluent in Arabic and Arabic culture, variously served as U.S. Marine Corps officer, Aramco consultant, U.S. minister to Saudi Arabia, university professor of English Literature and college president, intelligence operative and one of the fathers of the CIA. His Ph.D. in English studies, written on "Gullivers' Travels" (1922), would seem to befit a traveller so able in the art of reversing perspectives. At the histor … [Click Below for Full Description]

Quando gli austriaci occuparono Napoli nel 1707, i due uomini furono proclamati martiri e per il 23 e il 24 febbraio 1708 furono organizzate le loro solenni esequie per ordine del viceré, il conte Wierich von Daun, e per espresso desiderio di Carlo III d'Austria; come Vico stesso riferisce, in latino, negli «Acta funeris» che aprono il volume: «Il conte di Daun [...] era appena entrato [...] in Napoli [...] quando ricevette una lettera di questo tenore, scrittagli a tale proposito dal re, come se fosse ancora in marcia: "Memore di tutti coloro che gloriosamente sono morti in difesa del mio regno, e memore soprattutto di Carlo di Sangro e Giuseppe Capece e di quanto essi siano stati benemeriti di me per la loro fedeltà e la loro devozione, poiché mi si dice che per ordine del duca d'Angiò le loro teste sono state esposte a monito nella città di Napoli [...], espressamente ordino che tu provveda subito ad allestire loro un funerale per quanto possibile magnifico, al quale insieme con te partecipino tutti i dignitari affinché … [Click Below for Full Description]

Fourth edition. Baker (1656 - 1740) "... was a conservative Anglican clergyman who felt that this dangerous spirit of modernity of the post-revolution era had to be opposed. To this end he thoroughly prepared himself to write a book that would bring out the essential inadequacy of human knowledge and the fatal consequences of an overvaluing of human reason, emphasizing instead the need for a humble and reverent belief in revelation as our only certainty. He was a well-informed amateur, not a scientist or a philosopher, and his Reflections upon Learning (1699), while evidently touching a chord with the general reader-it went through eight editions before 1760-met with severe criticism from specialists. Although the book was published anonymously Baker became involved in an acrimonious controversy over it with the geologist and physician John Woodward, and this unpleasant experience clearly played a part in his decision to turn his attention to more congenial subjects"- DNB.

Rare first edition of a geological work by the German physician Johann Jakob Baier (1677-1735). The plates engraved by Puschner with fine fossils typical of the Jura. "Oryktographia norica (1708) was a new, systematic presentation based on his own studies. The work contributed much to disproving the idea that fossils were a mere sport of nature [..] he believed that the earth had been created in one act and that the Deluge was the only great change since the Creation. His exact foundation work, however, helps to prepare the ground for the next generation to determine historically the geological structure of mountains and transform oryctography into geology. [...]Oryktographia laid the foundations for the investigation of Jurassic fauna and of scientific paleontology in general (DSB). - Visit our website for additional images and information. Very Good.

Johann Jacob Scheuchzer
Prima edizione in tedesco del trattato sull'origine fossile dei pesci di Scheuchzer. In-8°, ma le pagine di testo sono montate su fogli formato in folio, pp. 8, e 5 tavole incise all'acquaforte, di cui una grande ripiegata e quattro a doppia pagina. L'autore delle incisioni è J. Hen. Hubert, e i pezzi ritratti hanno didascalie in latino e indicano la provenienza dei reperti, la maggior parte dal Museo Scheuchzeriano, alcuni dal Museo Valkeneriano. Le tavole hanno una straordinaria finezza esecutiva e oggettività nel ritrarre i fossili. Il testo contiene un'introduzione e la spiegazione dettagliata delle tavole, con parti in latino. Legatura in cartonato. In questo trattato scientifico Scheuchzer (1672-1733), uno dei più grandi scienziati svizzeri, considerato il padre della paleontologia europea e della paleobotanica, sostiene l'origine organica di questi animali fossili, e quindi il fatto di essere stati "testimoni" del Diluvio Universale, fornendo un importante contributo anche alla geologia. La collezione che l'autore mise insieme a partire dal 1690 divenne ben presto molto nota in Svizzera. paleobotany paleontology geology science fossils switzerland fishes ittica paleontologia paleobotanica fossili geologia scienze museum collection natural history

Alchemie, Emblemata - Maier, Michael:
Frankfurt, Oehrling, 1708. - 4°, circa 19,5 x 16 cm. 2 Bll., 150 (statt 153) SS., mit 50 Kupferstichen Neuerer Umschlag "Ferguson II, 63; Craven, Maier, 87; Caillet 6991; Landwehr 413; Gardner 430. Erste deutsche Ausgabe der Atalanta fugiens, die erste lateinische Ausgabe erschien 1617. Eines der Hauptwerke der esoterischen Alchemie, zugleich eines der schönsten illustrierten Werke zur okkulten Wissenschaft. Maier deutet die in den Ovidschen Metamorphosen erzählte Geschichte der Nymphe Atalanta als alchemistische Allegorie und vertritt die These, antike Mythen seien als Analogien chemischer Prozesse zu verstehen. "Maier was a Rosicrucian and gained Robert Fludd for that fraternity" (Thorndike VII, 173). "Helped to organize the publication of the works of Fludd in Frankfurt. probably had a hand in the publication of the 'Fama fraternitatis' (1616)" (DSB IX, 23). - Hier ohne die letzten zwei Blatt mit dem kurzen Anhang "Applicatio des Hohen Lied Salomonis" (im Preis deutlich berücksichtigt! - die drei Textseiten liegen in Kopie bei) - der Haupttext und die 50 Emblemkupfer komplett. " "- Papierbedingt etwas gebräunt, der Titel mit altem Stempel einer Freimaurerloge, wenig fleckig, sonst gut erhalten. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
