        Voyages de Mr Dellon, avec Sa Relation de l'Inquisition de Goa, augmentee de diverses pieces curieuses; et L'Histoire des Dieux qu'adorent les Gentils des Indes

      Cologne: Pierre Marteau, 1709 A very good early copy of this work, first published in 1685. 3 volumes in 2 with 4 engraved plates, 2 of which are folding. Mr Dellon, a physician, left France in 1668 travelling the coast of Malabar and practicing medicine. He was arrested by the Inquisition and sent for trial in Goa in 1674, suffering 2 years of imprisonment and torture, before being sentenced to 5 years in the galleys. Luckily he was released at the start of this sentence. His detailed account of the Inquisition has apparently been found to be accurate and provides a rare contemporary description of an Auto da Fe, and particularly interesting insights on the fate of the Portuguese New Christians. In contemporary speckled calf bindings with elaborately gilt tooled spines with raised bands and title and volume labels. Red page edges. The bindings have wear to top and bottom of the spine and spine joints, and corners, but are sound and in good to very good condition. Marbled endpapers with large bookplate of Bath reference library. The books were donated in 1920 by Mrs Miles, the widow of Colonel Samuel Barrett Miles, in memory of her husband. Also a small bookplate of Librairie Ecclesiastique. There are small blind stamped library marks at various points but these are not particularly noticeable. Library notes and ink signature of Colonel Miles to reverse of feps. Text with decorative head and tailpieces. Vol I: blank; title page; Dedication 8pp; Preface 9pp; Errata 1p; Text pp 1-476; 2 blanks; e/ps. Paper has light brown toning, more noticeable on some sections than others, but generally very good condition. Vol II: 2 blanks; title page; 4 plates (2 folding) with blind stamps; text - Relation de l"Inquisition pp 1-249; Table de Chapitres 10pp; title page Histoire des Dieux qu'adorent des gentils des Indes avec une addition considerable a l'histoire de l'Inquisition de Goa Tome Troisieme; Table de Chapitres 2pp; text pp 1-270 including list of names of those released from the Inquisition. A rare set with interesting provenance - Colonel Miles was a diplomat - his notes were published posthumously by his wife as 'The Countries and Tribes of the Persian Gulf' in 1919.

      London : Printed by J.B. for Benj. Walford 1709 - London : Printed by J.B. for Benj. Walford, at the Prince's Arms in St. Paul's Church-yard, 1709. [22], 426, [31] p. : 20 cm (8vo) Fully bound in contemporary calf-skin leather. 5 raised bands. 6 compartments. Upside-down spine label on lowest compartment. Gilt embossed borders and decorative flourishes on boards. Tight binding and solid boards. Minor shelf wear. Rubbing to boards. Light scuffing to spine. Slight cracking to rear board. Personal library bookplate inside front board. Otherwise, clean, unmarked pages with minor wrinkling, discoloration.Although one of the most eccentric physicians of his time, John Floyer published a number of works which depict a sensitivity for pure scientific research. As a result of his research on the matter, he became an ardent advocate for hydrotherapy as a means to curing and treating ailments. His lengthy treatise, Psychrolousia, or the History of Cold Bathing, published in 1701-02, is one of many books on the subject that served to support his basic thesis of the benefit of hot and cold baths. He advocated the therapy not only on purely scientific grounds, but he appealed to such irreproachable experts from antiquity as Hippocrates, Celsus, Caelius Aurelianus, and Galen, as well as to contemporary physiologists and English intellectuals.A scarce, well-preserved volume in very good condition.

Papel algo oscurecido en algunos pasajes, ciertas láminas algo cortas de márgenes. * Primera edición de la obra del médico y filósofo alemán Valentini (1657-1729), dedicada a Federico, rey de Prusia. Nacido en la ciudad alemana de Giessen, comenzó sus estudios de medicina en 1675. Diez años después sus investigaciones académicas lo llevaron a viajar por diversas universidades de Francia, Holanda e Inglaterra. Finalmente regresó a su ciudad natal, donde en 1687 obtuvo la cátedra de medicina. Por las mismas fechas adquirió una notable colección de instrumentos médicos, entre ellos una bomba de aire del taller Musschenbroek de Leiden, centro de innovación técnica y científica. Aficionado al coleccionismo, puso en marcha un importante museo de curiosidades y escribió Museum Museorum, primer estudio de las colecciones europeas y obra de gran éxito. Gracias a él la universidad de Giessen se convirtió en la tercera de Alemania en ofrecer la medicina experimental en su currículum formativo. Sus numerosas publicaciones no sólo en el ámbito médico sino también relativas a la historia natural o las curiosidades atrajeron la atención de varias de las sociedades científicas de las que acabó siendo miembro: en 1715 fue admitido en la Royal Society, y formó también parte de la Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina y de l’Académie de Berlín. En 1728 y gracias a sus éxitos en la práctica de la medicina y a la fama que le reportaron los numerosos tratados científicos que escribió fue nombrado médico imperial. Personaje influyente, en la primera de las obras dedica una parte general al análisis del origen y evolución de la filosofía natural, y sendos capítulos al estudio de los principios de la naturaleza (materia y forma), las cualidades de los cuerpos terrestres y celestes (tanto las manifiestas como las ocultas), el aire, el fuego, el agua, los minerales, los vegetales y los animales. Es frecuente hallarla junto a la Historia literaria, pero no tanto vinculada a la Historiae naturalis, que aunque de elaboración previa se encuentra al final. En cuanto a la segunda obra, Valentini analiza los trabajos de varios autores que han dedicado su producción al estudio y divulgación de teorías científicas y curiosidades de toda suerte y entre los que cita un tratado dedicado a las salamandras y otro a la salvia. En su mayoría se trata de personajes coetáneos, aunque menciona también a varios escritores antiguos.

Rög. 2 titles, the first within wide elaborate baroque border with female figures in each corner, the second within wide foliate border incorporating birds & beasts (including an elephant), armorial devices, weaponry & a portrait of the King, 16 leaves of text within elaborate wide foliate border with beasts & birds, the last leaf also showing obverse & reverse of a royal seal, & 1 full-page calligraphic portrait of Frederick III on horseback. later half calf, c1800 (binding moderately won but solid, light marginal foxing otherwise internally very good). First Edition of the 'King's Law', establishing absolute monarchy in Denmark. Edited by F.Rostgaard. Also included here is the proclamation of 4 Sept. 1709 announcing the publication of the law. "The Kongelov is dated and subscribed the 14th of November 1665, but was kept a profound secret, only two initiated persons knowing of its existence until after the death of Frederick III, one of them being Kristoffer Gabel, the king's chief intermediary during the revolution, and the other the author and custodian of the Kongelov, Secretary Peder Schumacher, better known as Griffenfeldt." (Encyc. Britan., 11th Edn.) NUC cites only the Harvard copy in North America. An English translation by Jenkin T.Philipps was published in 1731. "This document is in every way unique. In the first place it is remarkable for its literary excellence. Compared with the barbarous macaronic jargon of the contemporary official language it shines forth as a masterpiece of pure, pithy and original Danish. Still more remarkable are the tone and tenor of this royal law. The Kongelov has the highly dubious honour of being the one written law in the civilized world which fearlessly carries out absolutism to the last consequences. The monarchy is declared to owe its origin to the surrender of the supreme authority by the Estates to the king. The maintenance of the indivisibility of the realm and of the Christian faith according to the Augsburg Confession, and the observance of the Kongelev itself, are now the sole obligations binding upon the king. The supreme spiritual authority also is now claimed.the moment he ascends the throne, crown and sceptre belong to him by right.". (Idem) A beautifully produced book, elaborately engraved throughout, the wide foliate borders incorporating images of beasts and birds: elephants, lions, whale, bear, pheasant, peacock, unicorn, wild boar, lobster, fish, stork, &c.

        A Collection of Poems, in Two Volumes; Being all the Miscellanies of Mr. William Shakespeare, which were Publish'd by himself in the Year 1609, and now correctly Printed from those Editions

      Printed for Bernard Lintott, at the Cross-Keys, Between the Two Temple-Gates in Fleet-street, London 1709 - -1710. Two volumes bound in one. Modern full period-style, paneled leather with marbled endpapers. First Edition. First Printing of Volume Two, and Second Printing (Ford) or Issue (Jaggard) of Volume One, with the four sectional titles dated 1609. The first volume contains: I. Venus and Adonis. II. The Rape of Lucrece. III. The Passionate Pilgrim. IV. Sonnets to Sundry Notes of Musick. The second volume contains: I. One Hundred and Fifty Four Sonnets, all of them in Praise of his Mistress. II. A Lover's Complaint of his Angry Mistress. In this copy, the general title-page serves in lieu of the two volume title-pages, which are not present. According to the bibliographer H. L. Ford, some copies of this printing/issue of Volume One were bound without a volume title. A of Volume Two, containing the famously ambigous dedication ["To the Onlie Begetter of These Insuing Sonnets."] has been advanced to follow the final sectional title-page in Volume One [Sonnets to Sundry Notes of Musicke] to make that title serve as well for the sonnets in Volume Two. Based on the foxing patterns, this was done at an early date. All four sectional titles in Volume One are present. Shakespeare's Sonnets were first published in a Quarto Edition in 1609, of which only a dozen or so copies survive. They were reprinted only once in the 17th century, in 1640 by the publisher John Benson in a bowdlerized version. That book, when complete, now sells at auction for several hundred thousand dollars. Benson changed several pronouns from masculine to feminine, and made about seventy other verbal changes. He also reordered the sonnets, in several cases combining up to five to form single poems, while also haphazardly inter-splicing a corrupt version of the Passionate Pilgrim and several other non-Shakespearean poems. He also omitted eight sonnets altogether (Nos. 18, 19, 43, 56, 75, 76, 96, and 126). Most 18th century editions of Shakespeare's Poetry used Benson's "mangled hodgepodge" as their textual source [Wells, Stanley, and Gary Taylor. William Shakespeare: A Textual Companion]. This is the FIRST COLLECTED EDITION of Shakespeare's complete poems, discounting Benson's edition which omitted the long poems, 'The Rape of Lucrece' and 'Venus and Adonis'. It contains only the THIRD PRINTING of the Sonnets, apparently preceding a reprinting of Benson's version published by Edmund Curll at about the same time. Significantly, Lintott reprinted the 1609 Sonnets line for line, effectively publishing a facsimile edition of that rare First Quarto [Schoenfeldt, M. C. A Companion to Shakespeare's Sonnets]. It is thus not only textually superior to Benson's edition, but it also contains the very first obtainable printing of the eight sonnets that Benson omitted, including one of the most celebrated, Sonnet 18, beginning "Shall I compare thee to a Summer's day?" Light to moderate foxing and age-toning. With the ink inscription "Dear Nick/1912" at the head of the general title-page, and without the terminal blank in Volume Two. A Very Good copy, finely bound. Ford p. 38-39. Jaggard p. 434.

        William Penn's Copy of Privy Council Decision: Delaware Belongs to Him, not to Lord Baltimore

      Great Britain 1709 - Autograph Docket on Manuscript Document. [London, England], January 27, 1709 (document reads "1708," but is actually 1709, because, before 1752, Britain and its colonies held to the old Julian calendar with March 25 as the first day of the calendar year). 2 pp., 7 5/8 x 12 in. "Upon reading this day at the Board the Humble petition of Wm. Penn Esqr . Her Maty. in Councill taking the same into her consideration is Graciously pleased, to ordr accordingly, that the sd petition of the Lord Baltimore, Be, and it is hereby Dismissed" Penn, through cultivation of key British politicians such as Secretary of State, Lord Sunderland, won a crucial victory in the Privy Council in his long contest with Lord Baltimore over ownership of the "lower counties," now known as Delaware.Partial Transcript (in hand of the secretary of Queen Anne's Privy Council)"At the Court of St. James's the 27th of January 1708. Present, The Queen's Most Excellt. Maty . Upon reading this day at the Board the Humble petition of Wm. Penn Esqr. Proprietary under her Maty of the province of Pensylvania in America, setting forth that upon a complaint formerly made by Charles Lord Baltimore, proprietor of the Province of Maryland, the Respective Boundaries of those Countries, has after Severall hearings of Both parties and their Councills before the Lords of his Matys. Most Honble Privy council who were the then Committee for trade and plantations, been setled, and on the Seventh day of Nobr. 1685 Confirmed by an Order of his Late Maty. King James the 2d in Councill, wch the Lord Baltimore had acquiessed under for three & twenty years, and praying that a Late petition of the Lord Baltimore to her Maty. For vacating the said order may be dismissed; Her Maty. in Councill taking the same into her consideration is Graciously pleased, to ordr accordingly, that the sd petition of the Lord Baltimore, Be, and it is hereby Dismissed: And that the Lords Commrs for trade and plantations to whom that petition was, by an Ordr. of this Board of the 9th Instant referr'd, Do not proceed to Examine into the Allegations thereof as by ye same Ordr was Directed. Edwd Southard[docket in William Penn's hand:] Order of / Councll agst / Ld Baltime / for Dismissing his Petition / 27th Jany 1708Historical BackgroundIn November 1685, King James II and his Privy Council formally declared that the three "lower counties" of Delaware belonged to William Penn. However, after the Glorious Revolution of 1688, King William revoked the charters of both Maryland and Pennsylvania, ending the proprietary privileges of Lord Baltimore and William Penn, respectively. Penn achieved recognition of his proprietary again in 1694. By the time of Queen Anne's accession in 1702, Penn enjoyed more political connections than Baltimore.Undaunted, Lord Baltimore continued to work in England for restoration of his proprietary and for revocation of King James II's ruling on the ownership of Delaware. Writing to provincial secretary James Logan, Penn reported, "Ld Baltr . Petitioned the Queen in order . to dismiss or repeale the order of Councill in her Fathers time, & only run the line, & leave the Lower Countys [Delaware] to him as his by his graunt. I appeared to them, told them they could not be proper Judges, or Shake a definitive order or Sentence of King & Council complained to Ld President Sommers & Ld Sunderland secretr of state, they agreed with me . and concurd wth me to Petit. the Queen . & prayd to have so ill a President to American settlemts {prevented & his Petition} dismist, & so it was, in high Council."From this point forward, the territories that became Delaware could never again be claimed by Maryland. Such ironclad rulings were in fact quite rare in the history of British North America. Lord Baltimore finally obtained recognition of his proprietary again in 1715, but he died just before this ruling, leaving the lordship to his grandson, the 5th Lord.

        A True Light of Alchymy.

      Printed by I. Dawks for the author, London 1709 - Hardcover, Small 8vo. (3 1/2 x 6 inches). Recent full leather, with blind rules to edges, and leather label on spine, with the word 'Alchemy' gilt stamped on it running down the spine. Fresh endpapers. The title reads in full: A True Light of Alchymy. Containing, I. A Correct Edition of the Marrow of Alchymy, being a Celebrated Experimental treatise, discovering the Secrets and most Hidden Mystery of the Philosophers Elixir, both in Theory and Practice. II. The Errors of a late Tract called, A short Discourse of the Quintessence of Philosophers, wherein is pretended to be set forth, how one Select Person might be made partaker of it by the Authors means, and others rightly Directed in prosecuting that Study. III. The Method and Materials pointed at, composing the Sophick Mercury, and Transmuting Elixir, in plain Terms, free from all Enigma's. The like never before Emitted to the world.' An extremely scarce alchemical work - it is essentially an expanded edition of a small work, The Marrow of Alchymy, which was first published in two parts by Edward Brewster in 1654 and 1655. The Marrow of Alchymy soon became a sought-after rarity, with historian and hermetic scholar Daniel Georg Morhof (1639 – 1691) commenting to this effect as early as 1673. No author's name is given on the main title page of A True Light of Alchymy, however on the separate title page to the second part it is attributed to one Eirenæus Philoponus Philalethes, as was The Marrow of Alchymy. Eirenæus Philalethes (literally 'peaceful lover of truth') was a pseudonym used by a number of seventeenth century authors, and despite being held in high regard (A. E. Waite termed him ‘the most important expositor of Alchemy in the second half of the seventeenth century,’) the identity of the author of A True Light of Alchymy was long the subject of mystery and conjecture. The text itself suggests that it derived from the labours of three individuals: the first an unnamed alchemist, who is said, through his own endeavours, to have "attained the preparation of the Philosopher’s Mercury," the second a student of his known by the alias Eirenæus Philoponus Philalethes, to whom the alchemist entrusted a sample of the transmuting agent and a series of tracts outlining the secrets of his art, and the third, who persuaded the student to publish his experiences, and who himself provided the prefaratory material. The prefaratory material is signed Egregius Christo, and Vir gregis Custos, both rather poor anagrams of a latinised form of the name George Starkey (Georgius Sterchi and Georgius Stircus respectively). It is now widely accepted that Starkey (1627 - 1665), a Bermudan-born doctor who was educated in New England where he privately studied alchemy under the mentorship of the Massachusetts alchemical enthusiast John Winthrop Jr. (1606-1676), was probably the author of the entire work. A new edition of the excellent biography of the enigmatic Starkey: Gehennical Fire: The Lives of George Starkey, an American Alchemist in the Scientific Revolution, by William Royall Newman, was published by The University of Chicago Press in 2003. The recent binding is in fine condition. A quarter inch strip has been neatly excised from the top of the title leaf, apparently taking the 'A' of 'A True Light of Alchymy' with it, there is some light, even browning throughout, overall a VG copy of a scarce and important work.

        A COLLECTION OF POEMS, VIZ. I. VENUS AND ADONIS. II. THE RAPE OF LUCRECE. III. THE PASSIONATE PILGRIM. IV. SONNETS TO SUNDRY NOTES OF MUSICK

      London: Bernard Lintot, [1709]. London: Bernard Lintot, [1709]. First Edition. Hardcover. At some point the volume suffered some water damage which is now most visible on the endpapers and first and last few pages of the text as well as slight damage to the portrait of Shakespeare. Still a beautiful binding on a rare and important book in overall Very Good condition. The first issue, having the four sub-titles dated 1630, 1632, 1599, and 1599 respectively, of the Second Edition of Shakespeare's Poems after the very scarce 1640 edition and the first to include VENUS AND ADONIS and THE RAPE OF LUCRECE. Small octavo (4" x 6-3/4") bound by Riviere and Son in a full gilt-decorated early 20th century brown morocco original Cosway binding with recessed panels on front and rear with inset oval watercolor miniatures on ivory by C.B. Currie under glass (signed on the front pastedown) with the Henry Sotheran imprint at the bottom of the verso of the front free endpaper; (4), 155 pages. Inserted is a page with the following printed information: "This is No. 893 of the Cosway Bindings invented by J. H. Stonehouse, with Miniatures on Ivory by Miss Currie." Both Stonehouse and Currie have SIGNED the page at the bottom. The book was beautifully rebacked in the past decade or so with a new spine that blends quite well with the covers. The Currie miniature at the front is after the Droeshout Portrait (1622) of Shakespeare used as the frontispiece to the First Folio. The rear miniature is a depiction of Venus and Adonis. Cosway bindings--named after the leading miniaturist of the Regency period, Richard Cosway (1742-1821)--were introduced in the early 1900s by John H.Stonehouse of Henry Sotheran & Company who conceived embedding miniature paintings in the covers of elaborately-tooled bindings. Harrison teamed with the Riviere bindery to create the bindings after his designs. Riviere hired Miss C. B. Currie to create the delicate miniature paintings on ivory inset into the covers and protected by thin panes of glass. Much imitated since, original Cosway bindings such as this, particularly when on a book of some importance, are highly desired.

        Der nach Urtheil und Recht gestraffte Goldmacher Cajetani, Wie solcher den 23. Augusti 1709... zu Cüstrin... allen betrügerischen Goldmachern zum Abscheu und Exempel auffgehangen worden

      O. O. und Dr., (1709).. O. O. und Dr., (1709).. Mit einem fast halbseitigen Kupferstich. 39,5 x 31,5 cm. Brüning 3324; vgl. VD 18 10933964; nicht bei Coupe, Drugulin u. Hofmann-Randall; die SUB Göttingen und die UB München besitzen je eine Variante. Der 15,7:21,5 cm große Kupferstich in vorliegender Variante zeigt eine Kutsche, die den Verurteilten zum Richtplatz bringt. - Der an zahlreichen europäischen Fürstenhöfen tätige Hochstapler Domenico Manuel Caetano stammte wohl aus Neapel; in Bayern versuchte der vermeintliche Adept den Kurfürsten Max Emanuel mit seinen Künsten zu beeindrucken, die gescheiterten Experimente brachten ihn aber eine Inhaftierung in der Burg Grünwald ein, aus der er 1704 (Spanischer Erbfolgekrieg, Schlacht von Höchstädt) von österreichischen Truppen wieder befreit wurde. Er floh nach Preußen und versuchte bei dem durch seine Krönung und den Kauf der Königswürde etwas insolvent gewordenen Friedrich I. sein Glück; der König hatte zuvor auf Böttger als Goldmacher gesetzt, der aber aus Preußen floh und in Sachsen gefangen gehalten wurde - bekanntlich auch ohne Glück bei der Goldherstellung, dafür aber erfolgreich beim Porzellan. - Caetano führte seine Künste dem König vor und verwandelte auch wunschgemäß Quecksilber in Gold. Friedrich war entzückt, wollte aber den finanziellen Forderungen Gaetanos zur angeblichen Beschaffung von "notwendigen Materialien" nicht Folge leisten. Der glücklose Adept setzte sich Richtung Hamburg ab, wurde aber bald gefasst und auf der Festung Küstrin zur weiteren Goldproduktion festgesetzt. Da auch hier nicht das erwünschte Resultat Friedrich zu vermelden war, wurde er am 23. August 1709 "in einem mit Flittergold beklebten Kleide an einen ebenfalls vergoldeten Galgen" (zit. nach Vehse) vor dem Gericht in Küstrin zur Abschreckung aller "Goldmacher" öffentlich gehenkt. - Etwas gebräunt u. stockfleckig, Faltspuren.
