Bible. N.T. Syriac. 1709.
Lugduni Batavorum: Apud typis Joh: Mulleri, Joh: Fil:; Vid: & fil: Cornelium Boutesteyn, & Samuelem Luchtmans 4to (23.5 cm; 9.125"). [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.

Charles-Pierre Claret de FLEURIEU (1738-1810). Paris, [circa 1786-90]. Copper engraving (Very good condition, very minor points of toning and creasing, trimmed to neatline, printed on thick watermarked rag paper), 60 x 41 cm.
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 contempo … [Click Below for Full Description]

LABORDE, Alexandre de.
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..

Seymour, Gov. John: [Penn vs. Baltimore Dispute]:
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."

TRIALS - (Dr. Henry Sacheverell).:
Begun in Westminster Hall the 27th Day of February /10; and from thence continu'd by several Adjournments until the 23d Day of March following London: Published by Order of the House of Peers Printed for Jacob Tonson 1710 First edition 1709 - folio, [4],327 [i.e.335],[1]p. This first edition is identified by title-page spellings of "continu’d" and "adjournments" as well as pagination. With an initial imprimatur leaf. The versos of pp. 77-84 are unpaginated. Some very light occasional spots, etc, bound in contemporary panelled calf, professionally and tastefully rebacked and extreme corner tips touched up, decorated spine in compartments with contrasting title label. A VG copy of the scarce first edition in a decent binding. "This folio edition was printed for members of the Houses only, an octavo edition being in preparation for public sale." (Madan/Speck). [ Maden/Speck 465; ESTC T152340]. Henry Sacheverell (1674-1724) was a popular preacher at Oxford University. His controversial printed sermons attracted attention in London. In 1709 he became chaplain at St Saviour’s in Southwark. In November of that year he made his most contentious speech to date, attacking Catholics and dissenters by comparing the Gunpowder Plot to the execution of Charles I. Despite an order banning the printing of the sermon by the Lord Mayor he independently published it prompting the Whig government to take action. Articles of impeachment for high crimes and misdemeanours were drawn up, to which Sacheverell gave an uncompromising reply. The trial began in Westminster Hall on 27 February … [Click Below for Full Description]

ZARNUJI, Burhan al-Din al-
Utrecht: at the shop of Gulielmum Broedelet,, 1709. Arabice. Octavo in half-sheets (155 × 95 mm). Contemporary vellum, manuscript title to spine in black ink, red speckled edges. Text in Latin and Arabic. Engraved printer's device to title page, 8 woodcut figurative initials and 5 similar floral headpieces to the text. Boards and spine very slightly rubbed and marked, minor tear with no loss of text to signature E, very small black ink-stain to K2, occasional faint damp-staining to bottom edge, very small number of faint spots as usual. An excellent copy. Rare editio princeps of Zarnuji's Ta'lim al-muta'allim - Tariq al-ta'allum (The Instruction of the Student - The Path of Learning), a medieval Arabic manual on study-skills; this copy from the library of Guillaume Frederic Pijper (1893-1988), noted University of Leiden Arabist, with his bookplate to the front pastedown. Pedagogical treatises first appeared in the Islamic world perhaps as early as the 9th century with texts such as the Kitab al-Mu'allimin of al-Jahiz and Ibn Sahnun's Adab al-Mu'allimin. However, knowledge of these works took much longer to reach Europe than the Ta'lim al-muta'allim, with a Latin translation by the Maronite Abraham Ecchellensis (al-Haqilani) published in Paris in 1646 as Semita sapientiæ, sive ad scientias. Towards the end of the century, Joseph Banesis (al-Bani), another Maronite studying in Rome at the college established by Pope Gregory XIII in 1584, assisted Danish scholar Frederic Rostgaard in preparing a new translation. Both of these renderings are collected in the present volume with … [Click Below for Full Description]

OVERBEKE, Aernout van.
Amsterdam, Jan ten Hoorn, 1709.Sm.8vo. Contemporary vellum. With engraved portrait of the author by H. Cause and several woodcut tailpieces. (14), 272,47 pp. First published in Amsterdam in 1678. - Including: Geestige en vermaekelijke reysbeschryving .. naer Oostindien uytgevaren voor Raed van Justitie, in den jare 1668. Aernout van Overbeke (1632-1674) was a wag. His Verses , which later on came to include his travelogue, were reprinted numerous times. The tenth edition appeared in 1719. His travel account is not based on a diary, as most of them are, but written in the epistolary style instead. Van Overbeke's 'letters' are helter-skelter, they allude to memories, contain allusions and double-entendres, they are larded with Latin quotations, and never stops showing how witty he is (Nieuwenhuys, Mirror of the Indies, p.19).Landwehr, VOC, 1540; Du Perron, De muze van Jan Companjie, p.69.

Zweite Ausgabe des ersten englischen Werkes über Optik.- "Molyneux wrote his best-known scientific work, the 'Dioptrica nova', the first treatise on optics published in English. Printed at London in 1692, it was intended as a complete and clear treatise of current optical knowledge independent of any hypothesis concerning the nature of light. Appended to it was Halley's famous theorem for finding the foci of lenses (SS. 295-301). A popular text, it was reprinted in 1709 and provided a scientific base for Berkley's 'Essay Towards a New Theory of Vision'. The book was widely distributed, and Molyneux personally sent copies to Newton, Halley, Locke, Hooke, Boyle, Flamsteed, and Huygens. Its publication ended his friendship with Flamsteed, who according to Molyneux, took umbrage at the lack of prominence accorded his work" (DSB). - Tafeln 39 und 40 doppelt vorhanden. - Papierbedingt stellenweise etwas gebräunt bzw. stockfleckig. Ein Blatt mit kleinem Ausriss im unteren weißen Rand, sonst gut erhalten. - DSB 9, 464 Scarce second edition of the first treatise on optics published in English. - Bound in recent half calf.
