        The Works of Plato; translated by Thomas Taylor

      . London: Printed for Thomas Taylor by R. Wilkes... sold by Jeffery and Evans. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST COMPLETE EDITION IN ENGLISH OF PLATO'S WORKS; the enormously influential Thomas Taylor translation. Complete five-volume sets are notoriously rare. "It was through Taylor's translations that the Romantic poets had access to Platonism: they are probably one of the sources of Blake's mythology, as well as his repudiation of the natural science of Bacon and Newton... there is no doubt that Coleridge's acquaintance with Proclus was assisted by Taylor's translation... [In America], R. W. Emerson read Taylor's translations enthusiastically, and Taylor's influence was felt among Emerson's disciples, adepts of 'transcendental philosophy' such as Amos Bronson Alcott, William T. Harris, Thomas M. Johnson, Hiram K. Jones, and Thomas Wentworth Higginson... Emily Dickinson, who was a friend of Higginson, therefore probably owed her Platonism ultimately to Thomas Taylor" (DNB). Taylor's translation was a revision and completion of the work begun by Floyer Syndenham (1710-1787) . The Works of Plato, viz. his Fifty-Five Dialogues, and Twelve Epistles, translated from the Greek; Nine of the Dialogues by the Late Floyer Syndenham, and the Remainder by Thomas Taylor. London: Printed for Thomas Taylor by R. Wilkes... sold by Jeffery and Evans, 1804. Quarto, contemporary marbled boards sympathetically rebacked and recornered. Five volumes. Engraved plate of diagrams.; section titles. Volume I with two leaves remargined and one leaf with significant paper repair (with no loss of text). Occasional foxing but generally text exceptionally clean with wide margins. A very handsome set. RARE.

        Dialogo... sopra i due Massimi Sistemi del Mondo Tolemaico e Copernicano. Accresciuto di una Lettera dello stesso, non più stampata, e di vari Trattati di più Autori

      Florence [ie. Naples]: np, 1710. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to. [17 x 23.5 cm], (6) ff., 458 pp., (15) ff., (1) f. title, 83 (ie 81) pp., including title in red and black with large engraved emblematic vignette. With numerous geometrical illustrations in text. Bound in contemporary [?] stiff vellum with "Galilei Opere Tom. IV" gilt on spine, edges of leaves sprinkled. Three small wormholes and and a few small spots to spine, small dampstain to front cover, hinges a bit weak. Title faintly toned with marginal waterstain to foot, and small cancel replacing early ownership inscription, not affecting text; some very light scattered foxing throughout. A large, clean copy. Excellent Second Italian edition of one of the great landmarks in the history of astronomy and an essential component of any Galileo collection: Galileo's validation of the Copernican heliocentric system for which he was tried before the Inquisition, condemned as a heretic and forced to abjure the theories expressed in this work. The work was omitted from the standard collected edition of the Opera (1656/55) and no Italian language edition was available after the first of 1632. (The work was officially suppressed after Galileo's condemnation in 1633 and first appeared on the Index of prohibited books in 1664.)Presented as an ostensibly objective discussion between advocates of the Ptolemaic-Aristotelian and the Copernican systems trying to win the support of an educated layman, Galileo's Dialogo "displays all the great discoveries in the heavens which the ancients had ignored; it inveighs against the sterility, wilfulness, and ignorance of those who defended their systems; it revels in the simplicity of Copernican thought and, above all, it teaches that the movement of the earth makes sense in philosophy, that is, in physics" (PMM).The volume also includes Galileo's letter to the Grand Duchess of Tuscany explaining the relation between science and Scripture, the letter to Foscarini on the Copernican theory, the text of the Cardinal's sentence against him and his abjuration. The binding of the present copy, whose spine is gilt with the title "Galilei Opere Tom. IV," was almost certainly commissioned by the publisher or its owner to accompany the three-volume edition of Galileo's collected works (Florence 1718), which was printed WITHOUT the Dialogo and Lettera.. Alla Granduchessa.. A false Florentine imprint, the Neapolitan publisher remains unknown, as do the precise circumstances behind the publication, though it should probably be linked to the waning power of the Church's prohibition in the face of strong commercial interests as well as to the gradual rehabilitation of Galileo in 18th C Italy, evinced, among other events, by the eventual transfer of the astronomer's remains to the family tomb in Santa Croce in the early 1730's.Though there were several intervening Latin translations of the Dialogo, this is only the second appearance of the original text. * Cinti 168; Carli & Favoro 413; PMM 128.

        VOYAGES ET AVANTURES DE JAQUES MASSÉ

      A Bourdeaux [i.e., The Hague?]: Chez Jacques l'Aveugle,. 1710. eighteenth-century full calf, front, spine panel and edges tooled in gold, red-speckled edges.. Armorial bookplate of Sir Robert Eden, Bart. affixed to front paste-. down. Shallow chip from crown of spine panel, calf a bit rubbed at. edges, new leather title piece, internally an exceptionally clean,. crisp copy. Rare. (#90749). First edition. The correct first edition (Rosenberg's edition A) with the armillary sphere device on the title page with its base pointing to the left, footnote present on page 77 referring to a plate not present in any surviving copy (the footnote was omitted from other editions when the plate was not produced), and the change to smaller type on page 508. Although the title page is dated 1710, Rosenberg concludes that the book was not published prior to November 1714 and not later than 1717. A landmark in the development of the French voyage novel. "Wrecked on the coast of Australia, James Massey and other survivors explore the interior and discover a fertile, happy valley, free of wars." - Lewis, Utopian Literature, p. 192. "With the single exception of Fénelon's TÉLÉMAQUE, the VOYAGES ET AVANTURES DE JAQUES MASSÉ is as well written as any novel of Extraordinary Voyage in French before 1720 ... Tyssot de Patot is a very gifted writer. He shows both an extensive knowledge of books relating to foreign countries and an acquaintance with all the sciences ... The realistic presentation of the story, in particular the detailed account of the adventurer's camp in the Austral continent, the building of a raft, and the descriptions of plants and trees, may be compared favorably to similar passages in the ROBINSON CRUSOE of later date ... The realism of the setting is based upon a close following of accounts of real travelers, such as Dellon, Tavernier, Mocquet, and Lahontan. There is nothing fantastic, unbelievable or overdrawn in the descriptions of the Austral continent. Tyssot seems to restrain himself consciously in order to write an apparently true story. Indirect criticism by the example of an imaginary and virtuous community is used here as in all the previous novels of the type. The journey to the unknown land is very carefully authenticated, as is the return journey ... Discussions of science and religion are fitted into the adventures much more artistically than in the case of the novels of Foigny and Vairasse ... Voltaire's opinion of the Massé story would argue some appreciable influence on the part of this long forgotten novel. From the point of the history of ideas, the VOYAGES ET AVANTURES DE JAQUES MASSÉ is a very interesting document." - Atkinson, The Extraordinary Voyage in French Literature from 1700 to 1720, pp. [67]- 97.

        Biblia, das ist: Die gantze heilige Schrift des Alten und Neuen Testaments. Wie solche von Herrn Doctor Martin Luther Seel. im Jahr Christi 1522. in unsere Teutsche Mutter-Sprach zu übersetzen angefangen

      Nürnberg: In Verlegung Johann Andreä Endters Seel, Sohn, und Erben, 1710. Folio (39 cm, 15.38"). Frontis., [32] ff., 1181, [1] pp., [11 (-1)] ff.; 1 plt., illus. Aside from its importance in the religious tradition, Luther's translation of the Bible is probably the most important single text for the formation of Modern German. Like other Luther Bibles, this one contains his prefaces to the books of the Bible, including his theologically significant Preface to the Epistle to the Romans. It is also supplemented by the Augsburg Confession, of which, sadly, the last leaf is absent here. In this printing, a fine engraved title-page shows an angel delivering Luther's translation of the Old Testament to a Church still in bondage to the requirements of the old Law. A similar sectional title-page, depicting God the Father, Jesus Christ, and allegorical figures of the sacraments of Baptism and Communion, comes before the New Testament. Six special pairs of leaves, bound in at various places, each offer a first page containing an engraving of biblical figures and three following pages containing their biographies. A woodcut vignette of the unusual triple arms of the city of Nürnberg appears on the title-page; a number of chapters are adorned, at head, with one-third page woodcut illustrations set in neat borders; and the books typically open with typographically appealing two-column "headers." The text is in a handsome and relatively legible fraktur. The size, decoration, and overall composition of the volume, along with its faults (especially the manner in which which pages are worn), suggest a history as a lectern Bible in a Lutheran Church. Binding: This copy is bound in ornately blind-tooled and -stamped alum-tawed sheep over wooden boards, the front cover with three of its original etched corner bosses and with its two etched clasp-catches. (Bosses of back cover no longer present, remnants of clasps.) A martial portrait is centered on each cover; unfortunately these are now so worn that they are no longer identifiable. Perhaps they belong to the electors of Saxony who safeguarded the Lutheran faith in its infancy. Binding as above. Covers abraded and worn, some scraping to back upper board, leather peeling back from fore-edge of front cover and opening at ends of joints, most notably at bottom of front one. Front free endpaper with inked inscription, in German, dated Philadelphia, 1852. Frontispiece with a fore-edge chip (not into image) and tears in from bottom margin and at gutter, with small loss to plate area at bottom inner corner. A number of pages with tears extending into text, a few places with chips to bottom outer corners with loss of words but not of sense. Scattered foxing, with occasional darker small stains. Last leaf (of Confession, NOT Bible) lacking. Despite faults, a grand volume both usable and inspiring.

      London: J. Bowles, T. Bowles, Philip Overton & John King, 1710 [but issued circa 1740]. Copper-engraved map, with full original colour, in excellent condition. 25 x 39 1/2 inches. A beautiful, large scale map of England and Wales by one of England's most intriguing cartographers Herman Moll came to London around 1678 from either Holland or Germany. He found work as a cartographical engraver, working for Moses Pitt, among others. By 1688 he had his own shop. Moll had a gift for making interesting friends and these included Daniel Defoe, Jonathan Swift (he provided maps for Robinson Crusoe and for Gulliver's Travels), William Dampier and Woodes Rogers, explorer/buccaneers and Robert Hooke, the scientist. "The South Part of Great Britain" refers to the constitutional union of England and Scotland that occurred in 1707, which joined the north and south as it were. The map is full of interesting details including roads and distances between towns, which was a relatively new innovation in maps. Cf.

        Le golfe de Venise aux environs du quel se trouve a l'orient...les isle et cotes de Dalmatie et d'Istrie...Raguse...Romagne...

      Incisione in rame eseguita da Starckman, colorata d'epoca ai confini, 508x580. Non comune carta dell'Adriatico redatta sull' esempio di quella di Coronelli di pochi decenni prima; essa risulta più essenziale nei decorativi cartigli, pur risultando assai piacevole. De Fer pubblicò oltre 600 carte geografiche ed fu insignito della carica di geografo del re. Ben conservata nel complesso pur presentando parecchi strappi restaurati al margine sup. ed integrazioni ai due ang. sup. con perdita di parte della parte incisa (scala delle miglia).

      Du Vivie Johannes, Severinus Isaak 1710 8° [cm. 19,5 × 12]; 2 voll.: il primo di ff. 3 di guardia, pp. 18 n.n. (inserita una carta dopo la seconda del fascicolo) + 638, ff. 2 di guardia; il secondo di ff. 2 di guardia (3 in origine perché il primo, che recava una nota di possesso, è stato incollato al piatto), f.I n.n. (col frontesp.), pp. 50 (num. 639-688) + 66 n.n. (di indici al contenuto del I vol.) + 452 (num. 1-452) + 16 n.n. (di indici al II tomo). Nel I vol. un frontespizio inciso precede quello tipografico, segioto a sua volta da un'antiporta incisa con stemma e dedica, a fronte della dedica del Graevius al Delfino di Francia. Bella legatura coeva in piena pelle con decorazioni a doppia cornice con intrecci geometrici e floreali ai piatti, e fogliette ai quattro lati; dorso a 5 nervi con tassello e titoli, la cui doratura si è quasi del tutto persa. Unghiature decorate in oro, tagli spruzzati. Appena lento. Capilettera incisi all'inizio delle singole opere. Le prime 116 pp. del vol. II avrebbero dovuto essere legate al primo, come dimostra la numerazione dell pp., dei fascicoli, e il richiamo. Tale scelta può essere stata indotta dalla necessità estetica di un antico posessore di avere due tomi di simile spessore. Ex libris sulla prima controguardia, note a a lapis e a penna sul contropiatto anteriore del vol. I, qualche lieve fioritura; es. leggermente brunito, ma buono

        [Collection of Eight Ming Picture Albums] Toshi Gogon, Baichiku Rangiku, Mokuhon Kacho, Sohon Kashi, Kokon Gafu, Meiko Senfu, Toshi Rokugon, Toshi Shichigon.

      Kyoto, Nakagawa Mohee, 1710. 8 volumes. 8vo (282 x 195mm). With 421 full-page woodblock illustrations of which 213 are related to natural history. Contemporary original stitched bindings, with calligraphic titleslips (preserved in a recent blue folding box). The most beautifully illustrated Chinese book of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). Eight unrelated volumes have been published by different authors and artists within a period of a few years (1620-1628). The order of the publication of the volumes is subject to controversy. Each volume has a different title. The eight works are known as 'Hasshu Gafu', but this collective title does not appear anywhere in the volumes. The single Chinese edition was published in the early 1620's. The books were imported into Japan and issued, first in 1672. Our copy is the second Japanese edition of 1710. The book is a great rarity. The Chinese edition, absent in all Western collections is unobtainable. Three complete copies of the first Japanese edition have been located. The second Japanese edition has been described by Mitchell, New York City Public Library, p. 289 and Kraft, Berlin Public Library, no. 224. Several libraries preserve one, two, three or four volumes out of eight. The Paris, Bibliothèque Nationale has 3 volumes of the second Japanese edition. According to Japanese specialists, the publication of 'Hasshu Gafu' had a considerable impact on Japanese painters of the 17th and 18th century and is considered as the first great pictorial source on Chinese painting for Japanese artists. The work is composed as follows: 1. Toshi Gogon. Illustration of five verse poems of the T'ang Dynasty, (618-906). 50 single page illustrations. 2. Baichiku Rangiku, dated Wan-li 48 (=1620). Illustrations of Plums, Bamboo, Orchids and Chrisanthemums. 98 single page illustrations. 3. Mokuhon Kacho, dated T'ien-ch'i 1 (=1621). Illustrations of flowers and birds. 44 single page illustrations. 4. Sohon Kashi, dated T'ien-ch'i 1 (=1621). Illustrations of flowering plants. 45 single page illustrations. 5. Kokon Gafu. Ancient and modern paintings. 46 single- page illustrations 6. Meiko Senfu. Fan paintings. 47 double-page illustrations. 7. Toshi Rokugon. Illustration book of Chinese poems in the 'rokugon style', 40 single page illustrations. 8. Toshi Shichigon. Illustration book of Chinese poems in the 'shichigon style', highly estimated during the T'ang dynasty (618-906). 50 single page illustrations. This volume has a slightly different decoration pattern of the covers than the others. The third volume 'Mokuhon Kacho' has some considerable marginal worming at the upper margin of 7 leaves. A well preserved set, a few leaves with some occasional insignificant wormholes. Mitchell p. 289.

        Tabula Mexicae et Floridae, Terrarum Anglicarum, et Anteriorum Americae Insularum; Ite, Cursuum et Circuituum Fluminis Mississippi Dicti

      Amsterdam: [circa 1710]. Copper-engraved map, full period hand-colouring. 20 1/2 x 24 1/4 inches. Highly decorative Dutch derivative of De l'Isle's monumental 1703 mapping: this copy a dark impression with beautiful full period colour. Despite the title, this map covers a large portion of North America, from the Great Lakes in the north, through the Caribbean to Panama in the south, with Delisle's excellent depiction of the Mississippi River Valley. The Southwest shows missions and native villages, including Acoma, as well as Taos, Santa Fe, and Casas Grandes. Schenk has added a vignette off the Pacific coast of Central America, reflecting the wealth of the region with an elaborate sea battle between Spanish and French forces and a scene of buccaneers unloading a treasure chest. The routes of the Spanish galleons are shown throughout the Caribbean. Martin & Martin, Maps of Texas and the Southwest p. 93 and plate 16; Wheat Mapping the Transmississippi West 107; Lowery 198.

Bläcknumrering på första sidan. Liten pappersförlust i nedre ytterhörnet. Daterad i Malmö den 15 mars 1710. Ur Ericsbergs biblotek. Stenbock har erfarit att förordningen av år 1620 som förbjöd resande ut ur landet "utan behörigt tillstånd och pass" inte blivit "rätteligen observerad och effterlefwad". "[S]ärdeles har man denna tiden, sedan fienden inföll, mot all förmodan måst röna icke allenast en stor kallsinnighet hoos mången här i landet, emot des rätta tillbundne öfwerheet, utan och en högst strafbar oredelighet och afwikande ifrån deras undersåtelige plicht till dhe danskas partie, med hwarjehanda hielp och understöd till deras orättmätige upsåtz befrämjande". Guvernören ser sig tvungen att skärpa bestämmelserna och proklamerar att om någon skulle "fördrista sig att hielpa och befordra eller [...] emottaga" någon som saknar giltigt pass, skall inte endast den resande utan även dess medhjälpare staffas och "hållas fogelfrij". Dessutom förbjuds befolkningen att "i tienst hafwa, hysa eller döllja någon här i landet som är dansk infödd" eller har varit i dansk tjänst

        Orbis Descriptio; Cum Commentriis Eustathii

      Oxford: E theatro Sheldoniano, 1710 First Sheldonian edition. Contemporary calf with covers paneled in blind, rebacked to style, gilt burgundy morocco label. Octavo. Illustrated with four copper-engraved folding maps. Greek and Latin text on facing pages. The commentary by Eustathius is in Greek only. Some light foxing. Copper-engraved bookplate of the Duke of Sussex on front pastedown. A very good copy. Dionysius Periegetes or Dionysius the Voyager is thought to have been from Alexandria and to have flourished around the time of Hadrian (117-138 C.E.).
