[5] ff., 749, [1 (blank)] pp.. 1709 A major work in the history of printing and an important edition of the New Testament in Syriac. Its significance in the history of printing is that this edition of the Syriac New Testament is widely held to be => one of the first two books printed from an early version of stereotype plate developed by Muller during the first decade of the 18th century; there are two states of the title-page, one with the date 1708 and this. Further, as the first edition of the text edited by Johannes Leusden (1624–99) and Carolus Schaaf (1646–1729), two of the leading scholars of Syriac in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, it quickly revealed itself as one scholars could rely upon and it became, in essence, the "textus receptus" of the Syriac N.T. The editors did not see eye to eye on the matter of pointing, and up through Luke 17:26 Leusden's preference (based on the Chaldean system) was used — after which Schaaf began using the system favored by the Walton Polyglott — Leusden having died at that editorial point in the project! The title-page here is printed in red and black, with the title in Syriac at its head and an engraved printer's device below. There are head- and tailpieces and decorative initials in the text, which is printed with the Syriac text in parallel columns with a Latin translation, in double-column format. => A handsome production. Recent qaurter brown calf, old style: raised bands, gilt ruling above and below the bands as accents, gilt center devices in spine compartments. new endpapers, boards with a green and black stone pattern marbled paper. Age-toning, staining from exposure to damp, browning; none of this at distressing levels. => Withal, a good copy of a work important to multiple audiences.

Both van Dale, in "De oraculis veterum ethnicorum dissertationes" (1683), and Fontanelle in his "Histoire des oracles" from 1687, claimed that the ancient oracle answers were given neither by the supernatural agency of demons, nor the Devil, and also that they did not cease with the birth of Jesus

        [MANUSCRIPT LETTER, SIGNED, FROM MARYLAND GOVERNOR JOHN SEYMOUR TO ONE OF THE LORDS OF TRADE DISCUSSING ISSUES IN THE COLONY]

      Maryland, 1709. Old fold lines. Bright and clean. Very good plus. An especially noteworthy and very lengthy manuscript letter from John Seymour, governor of the Maryland Colony from 1704 to 1709, to one of the Lords of Trade, detailing the tumult in the colony, namely the conflicting attitudes of Catholics and Protestants, and discussing the developing border dispute between William Penn and Lord Baltimore. Of the Catholics and Protestants, the governor writes in part: "The first by his Lordships favour in lands not only - makes a considerable Interest with many of ye Inhabitants& Delegates, but also gains many Proslites, their Priest being encouraged and supported on all Occasions so that One of them had the Confidense to tamper with One of my Domestiques; and when they checked for these Abuses, the whole party is in a flame, and ready to raise a considerable Contribution for their Defense & Protection & with the extreamest Spite and Malice exclaimed against the severity, as they terme it, of her Majesty's Instructions..." With mention of the Penn-Calvert dispute: "My Lord I should be glad to have her Majesty's Command about running the Northern Lyne of this Province, or to heare my Lord Baltimore and Wm. Penn had adjusted that Difference between themselves...the Borders in both Provinces being hardly restrayned from committing violence on each other...in the mean tyme take the best Care I can to prevent it." Seymour closes the letter with a notably early and rare mention of slaves: "Having in my last to the Lords of Trade sent them a generall account of all Negro Slaves imported into this Province Since the year 1698...the Royall African Company have not imported any..." The Royal African Company lost its monopoly on the slave trade in 1698 and with a growing number of merchants now engaging in the slave trade, there was a marked transition in the economic development and population of Maryland. In 1700 the population of Maryland was around 25,000. By 1750, the population had grown to about 130,000 and was wholly dependent on slavery to fuel its plantation economy. This copy signed as a duplicate, though it appears to have been enclosed with the original when sent to London. A full transcript of the letter is available.

Einträge von 1797 (Nennung des Autors, Besitzername [Fuhrmann] und Hinweis auf die Seltenheit des Buchs). Äußerst seltene, von DIPPEL (Schloss Frankenstein bei Darmstadt 1673 – 1734 Berleburg) nach seiner Flucht aus Berlin nach Amsterdam selbst veranstaltete Sammlung der zwanzig von 1697 (Orcodoxia [!] orthodoxorum, oder die verkehrte Wahrheit) bis 1709 (Fatum fatuum, das ist: die thörigte Nothwendigkeit; [gegen DESCARTES, HOBBES, LEIBNIZ und SPINOZA gerichtet, „der 1.Angriff geg. SPINOZA in d. dt. Theologie“, (NDB 3, S.738)]) erschienenen Schriften, darunter auch die programmatische Utopie Christen-Stadt auf Erden ohne gewöhnlichen Lehr- Wehr- und Nehr-Stand. DIPPEL, “Theologe und Philosoph, Mediziner und Chemiker, war der wohl bedeutendste jener Frühaufklärer, die in der Übergangsperiode von der feudalen zur bürgerlichen Gesellschaft die volksreformatorische Tradition weiterführten und sie unter Einbeziehung der von der neueren Philosophie, Gesellschaftslehre und Naturwissenschaft aufgeworfene Probleme zu einer umfassenden Weltanschauung ausbildeten. . DIPPELs religiös gekleidete Argumente dienten den Bestrebungen der Volksopposition noch bis ins 19.Jahrhundert hinein.” (J.Höppner, in: Demokratische Wege S.134f.). Seine Biographie zeigt ihn in fast lebenslangen Auseinandersetzungen mit der staatlichen und kirchlichen Obrigkeit. Sie zwangen ihn immer wieder zur Flucht. 1729 fand er endlich Ruhe in Berleburg, dem „Zufluchtsort aller radikalen Pietisten“. Hier erschien 1747 unter dem gleichen Titel eine dreibändige Sammlung seiner Schriften. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Full and Just Account of the Present State of The Ottoman Empire.

      London: for the author by John Mayo,, 1709. In all its Branches: With The Government, and Policy, Religion, Customs, and Way of Living of the Turks, in General. Faithfully related From a Serious Observation, taken in many Years Travels thro' those Countries. Folio in fours (345 × 220 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf panel-stamped in blind, rebacked (c.19th) with brown morocco spine in compartments double-ruled in gilt with gilt-lettered red-brown morocco label to second, page-edges sprinkled red, floral roll to board-edges gilt. Engraved portrait frontispiece and 7 plates each with facing explanatory leaf. Armorial bookplate of Sir John Bridger (squire of Coombe Place, Lewes; appointed Sheriff of Sussex, 1780) to front pastedown. Ownership inscription of John Lilley ("his book, 1714, 915") to final blank. Extremities slightly rubbed, corners bumped, a few light scuffs and splashes to covers, old restoration to craquelure on front, inner hinges sometime reinforced with red cloth, ticket or plate removed from front pastedown, light browning to front flyleaves and ff. 2O-2X, plates and explanatory leaves foxed as often, pale staining to 2I r., short chip to bottom edge of 2L not affecting text, otherwise the very occasional faint marginal spot. Overall a very good copy. First edition. Hill was only fifteen when he was sent by his grandmother to visit his distant relative Lord Paget, English ambassador to Constantinople. From Turkey he travelled to Greece, Egypt, Palestine, Jordan and Arabia before returning to England three years later in April 1703 with Paget. "Hill's Ottoman Empire was a luxury publication designed to establish its author's social and literary credentials … at nearly 350 pages it was an impressive achievement for a 24-year-old. Hill's primary model was the diplomat Sir Paul Rycaut's Present State of the Ottoman Empire of 1668. He borrows many of Rycaut's observations on the political, institutional, and religious history of the Turks … yet he is undoubtedly more interested in projecting himself into the picture as an adventure hero … Hill dramatizes himself struggling with knife-wielding Arabs, finally stabbing one to death, going underwater pearl-diving, braving storms and dangerous tempests on his sea journey to Samon and, finally, enduring 'A Strange Accident which befel the Author in a Vault among the Mummys'" (Gerrard. Aaron Hill: The Muses' Projector, 1685-1750, p.22). Complete copies are genuinely scarce in commerce, with just three seen at auction in the last thirty years.

        VYBORG (VIIPURI), RUSSIA: [Proof State - Carte du Golfe de Wibourg à la Côte de Karèlie].

      - A proof state of an exceptionally rare sea chart of Vyborg Harbour, Russia, prepared for Charles-Pierre Fleurieu’s grand atlas of the Baltic Sea. This extremely rare and highly detailed sea chart depicts Vyborg Bay, part of the Baltic Sea, in the region of Kerelia, Russia. The chart was made by Charles-Pierre Claret de Fleurieu, who was a French naval officer, cabinet minister, cartographer, scientist and a sponsor of Pacific voyages. The walled port city of Vyborg (called Viipuri by the local Finnish population) is located in the upper right quadrant, while the heavily indented bay’s features are captured by remarkably exquisite engraving. The waters feature copious hydrographic information, including bathymetric sounding, the locations of shoals and the delineation of sailing routes (distinguished by dotted lines). The surrounding topography is captured in a vibrant fashion, marking major roads and farms (featuring the names of their proprietors). The chart is certainly the most detailed and accurate map of the Vyborg area made during the Enlightenment era. This particular example of the chart is special in that it is a rare proof state, indicated by the fact that it was printed from the copper plate before the finishing details were added. Most conspicuously, while the chart is adorned with a beautiful view of Vyborg in the upper left (based on Jan van den Aveelen’s view of the town, first published in 1709), the roundel above and to the right, which is meant to contain the title, is left entirely blank (save for the word "Karélia" written in pencil, likely in a contemporary hand), while the other rectangular vignette above the view is also left entirely blank. Elsewhere some toponymic features appear to be missing and as are details with respect to the latitude and longitude in the chart’s borders. This chart was likely printed by the engraver as a test pull during the engraving process. As such publishers’ proofs were usually intentionally destroyed, the preset example is a very rare survivor. The present chart was issued during a period when the Baltic region, and Vyborg in particular, occupied a prominent role in global affairs. The area was a major source of timber and fish, and during the Napoleonic Wars dominance over the region was hotly contested between, on the once hand, France and its ally Sweden, against the allied powers of Britain, Russia and Prussia. Vyborg was an especially prominent port, as it was the gateway to the vast Karelian forests that contained mast timber vital for naval vessels. Vyborg, which had been in Swedish hands from 1293 until being captured by the Russians in 1710, long sat upon the fault line between these two great northern powers. During the Russo-Swedish War of 1788-90, Vyborg Bay was the scene of the largest naval confrontation ever fought in the Baltic. At the Battle of Vyborg Bay (known in Sweden as the Viborgska gatloppet, "the Viborg Gauntlet") on July 4, 1790, massive Russian and Swedish fleets, comprising hundreds of vessels carrying over 50,000 men were engaged in an epic contest around the sandbank labeled in the lower left quadrant of the chart as the ‘Pugkava’ Shoal (Passaloda Shallows). While the Russians tactically won the battle, it proved to be a pyrrhic victory as they were left so weakened that they could no longer continue the war, so suing for peace shortly thereafter. As such the battle is seen by historians as a strategic Swedish victory. During the Napoleonic Wars, Russia gained the upper hand and in 1809 assumed control over all of Finland. Vyborg was integrated into the Grand Duchy of Finland in 1811. The Story of the Production of Fleurieu’s Baltic Charts The circumstances under which the present proof state chart was created are most curious. Enter Charles-Pierre Claret de Fleurieu (1738-1810), who was for many years the driving force behind French naval activities and maritime exploration. A professional naval officer, he received training in hydrography an

        Letter Signed and subscribed in French ('Mon Frere / Votre bonne Soeur / Anne R'), to the duke of Lorraine, 2 pages folio with address-leaf, St James's, 23 April 1709.

      - Assuring him of her continued mutual friendship, and supporting the interests and honour of his house. Referring to his support of the Grand Alliance, she says he will be compensated for not getting the duchy of Montferrat. '. Et comme Personne n'est plus sensible que moy, aux Pertes que vous a causé l atachment constant et sincere de votre Famille aux Interets de la Grande Alliance, dont vous venez de donner une preuve si convaincante, en quittant si genereusement vos Pretensions au Montferrat pour frayer le chemin au Bien Public, dans une Conjoncture qui vous mettoit en etat de les faire valoir, vous pouvez estre assuré, que cette Demarche m'obligera à prendre plus fortement à coeur les Interets de vôtre Maison, et de les appuier de tout mon Credit aupres des Hauts Alliez, afin que la Paix ne soit point conclüe, sans qu'on prenne les mesures les plus propres et les plus convenables pour vous procurer une Satisfaction equitable, et un Dedommagement entier de ces Pertes .'Queen Anne's formal childhood education was mostly limited to domestic accomplishments such as embroidery, to the exclusion of more academic pursuits, but her greatest literary accomplishment was her mastery of French. In later life she could converse confidently with foreign diplomats, and would not hesitate to alter the wording of formal diplomatic letters written in that language.Leopold, Duke of Lorraine (1679-1729) had been exiled with his parents at birth as Lorraine had been occupied by Louis XIV of France. He regained his duchy in 1697 after the Treaty of Ryswick, and did much during his life to reconstruct and repopulate his war-stricken duchy, ensuring its safety and prosperity by the end of his life. In 1708 he attempted to claim the Duchy of Montferrat, being the closest living male relative of his cousin, the erstwhile Duke of Mantua; however, Montferrat had already been promised to the Dukes of Savoy by the Emperor Leopold I. The letter is countersigned by Charles Spencer, third earl of Sunderland (1675-1722), a whig politician who served in office during Anne's reign. The original papered seal is intact on the address-leaf, which bears also a contemporary endorsement.

      BAL 1709; Berlin Kat. 3479; Ganay 165; Johnston 731; Millard I, 84 (pp. 221-223); cf. Springer, p. 80. First edition of a beautifully illustrated work containing descriptions and depictions of 29 French castles and their gardens built in the years just before the Revolution, followed by a more practical consideration of making a picturesque garden. It "is an invaluable record of each of the gardens illustrated, and of a type of garden design that has all but disappeared" (Millard).The work was composed by the writer Alexandere de Laborde (1773-1842), son of a prominent banker, after his illustrator Constant Bourgeois began to sketch views of Laborde's estate at Méréville and its surrounding area. Laborde's "...melancholic nostalgia and love of nature belong to the last Rousseauian decades before the end of the ancient regime, ... However, his method is that of post-Revolutionary interest in social and natural conditions. His essay is related to the tendency to discuss social, chronological, and regional backgrounds, and to emphasize regional differences of style" (Millard).Owner's inscription on title-page, half-title foxed and with a few small tears along the edges, and a few occasional spots throughout. A very good copy with wide margins. Binding slightly rubbed along the extremities and the spine (especially at the head and foot), but still good..

        [MANUSCRIPT LETTER, SIGNED, FROM MARYLAND GOVERNOR JOHN SEYMOUR TO ONE OF THE LORDS OF TRADE DISCUSSING ISSUES IN THE COLONY].

      Maryland. March 10, 1709.. [6]pp. on folded folio sheets. With transcript. Old fold lines. Bright and clean. Very good plus. An especially noteworthy and very lengthy manuscript letter from John Seymour, governor of the Maryland Colony from 1704 to 1709, to one of the Lords of Trade, detailing the tumult in the colony, namely the conflicting attitudes of Catholics and Protestants, and discussing the developing border dispute between William Penn and Lord Baltimore. Of the Catholics and Protestants, the governor writes in part: "The first by his Lordships favour in lands not only - makes a considerable Interest with many of ye Inhabitants& Delegates, but also gains many Proslites, their Priest being encouraged and supported on all Occasions so that One of them had the Confidense to tamper with One of my Domestiques; and when they checked for these Abuses, the whole party is in a flame, and ready to raise a considerable Contribution for their Defense & Protection & with the extreamest Spite and Malice exclaimed against the severity, as they terme it, of her Majesty's Instructions..." With mention of the Penn-Calvert dispute: "My Lord I should be glad to have her Majesty's Command about running the Northern Lyne of this Province, or to heare my Lord Baltimore and Wm. Penn had adjusted that Difference between themselves...the Borders in both Provinces being hardly restrayned from committing violence on each other...in the mean tyme take the best Care I can to prevent it." Seymour closes the letter with a notably early and rare mention of slaves: "Having in my last to the Lords of Trade sent them a generall account of all Negro Slaves imported into this Province Since the year 1698...the Royall African Company have not imported any..." The Royal African Company lost its monopoly on the slave trade in 1698 and with a growing number of merchants now engaging in the slave trade, there was a marked transition in the economic development and population of Maryland. In 1700 the population of Maryland was around 25,000. By 1750, the population had grown to about 130,000 and was wholly dependent on slavery to fuel its plantation economy. This copy signed as a duplicate, though it appears to have been enclosed with the original when sent to London. A full transcript of the letter is available.

Ex.: Leer, rug en scharnieren wat geschaafd. Bibl. verw.: Landwehr 66; Lit.: Waller, Biografisch woordenboek van Noord-Nederlandsche graveurs (Den Haag 1938). Deze uitgave van de 'Contes et nouvelles' bevat de 58 illustraties van die uit 1685, maar ditmaal niet door, maar naar Romeyn de Hooghe gegraveerd. Wie deze graveur was, is niet bekend; hetzelfde geldt voor de titelpagina. Het tweede deel is uitgebreid met 11 nieuwe vertellingen, ook allemaal met een illustratie. Van deze platen zijn er 5 ongesigneerd, 5 zijn ondertekend door W.J. naar Romeyn de Hooghe en 1 door D. Jonckman naar Romeyn de Hooghe. Dirk Jongman, geboren in Amsterdam omstreeks 1685, werkte volgens Waller tussen 1709 en 1726 in Amsterdam. Landwehr schrijft alle 11 nieuwe illustraties toe aan W. Jonkman, waarom is niet duidelijk. Pierre Brunel (1658 - 1740), evenals zijn collega Desbordes afkomstig uit Frankrijk, werkte van 1687 tot zijn dood als boekverkoper in Amsterdam. RdH009".

        Journal of the Votes of the General Assembly of Her Majesties Colony of New-York in America [caption title]

      William Bradford, New York 1709 - (11 1/4 x 6 1/2 inches). 40pp. Expertly bound to style in half calf over period marbled paper covered boards, spine with raised bands in six compartments, ruled in gilt on either side of each band, red morocco lettering piece in the second compartment The Votes of the New York Assembly, 1709 A very rare and interesting imprint containing New York colonial acts passed between April 7 to November 12. It was printed by William Bradford, New York City's first public printer. Bradford (1663-1752) originally settled in Pennsylvania, where he began operating a printing press in 1685 and a bookstore in 1688. Controversies within the Quaker community, with Bradford supporting the dissident George Keith, led to the temporary seizure of his types and paper in 1692, and in 1693 he moved to New York. The present documents are among the earliest of official New York imprints. The present Journal includes the address to Governor Lovelace, as well as a note of his death after less than a year in office, one day after the Assembly granted him £1600. Page 39, final paragraph, contains instructions to Bradford to print the laws of the Colony "since the arrival of Coll. Slaughter" (i.e. Henry Slaughter, governor in 1691, who died that same year) together with details on its distribution. This is a very rare work; ESTC records four copies, one of which is defective, though Evans and Rosenbach note a fifth copy at the New York Public Library. Rosenbach offered a copy for $385 in 1938, and a copy, possibly the present, sold at Anderson Galleries in 1913 for $485. ESTC W11517; Evans 1424. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      Londini: "J. Robinson, J Lawrence [et al.]". 1709. "2 parts in 1, 8vo, pp. [30] plus unpaginated lexicon in double column; [16] plus unpaginated lexicon in double column; both title pages printed in red and black; full contemporary paneled calf, slightly later red morocco label on spine slightly chipped; in all, a good, sound copy, or better. With the early ownership signture of John Wordsworth, Trinity College, Cambridge. John Wordsworth (1805-1839) was the William Wordsworth's nephew. ""Between 1830 and 1833 he resided in Cambridge, and contributed a notable review of James Scholefeld's Aeschylus to the first number of the Philological Museum. In 1833 he made a long visit, by way of France and Switzerland, to Italy, where he collated the Medicean manuscript of Aeschylus at Florence with a view to a new edition. Some of this work was used by John Conington in his edition of the Choëphoroe (1857). On returning to Cambridge he took up the duties of an assistant tutor at Trinity, giving lectures that were noted for their diligence and erudition"" (DNB). Also with the 19th century engraved bookplate of St. Ninians Library. John Wordsworth's brother Charles was connected with the Cathedral of St Ninian, Perth. Charles settled down finally at Perth and was thus brought into close connection with the cathedral of St Ninian. So this book of John's likely descended to Charles who made the donation at St. Ninians."
