FUCHS, Leonhart.
Bibliotheca Osleriana 2688; Durling 1710; USTC 602528 (4 copies). Very rare first edition of Fuchs's "Four books on some difficult questions", a heavily revised version of his Apologiae tres ("Three apologies") from 1538. It is part of a debate on the preferences for ancient Greek and Latin sources on one side versus Arabic sources on the other side; refuting the views of Guillaume Dupuis, Sébastien de Monteux and Jérémie de Dryvere. Fuchs had already discussed this issue in his 1535 Paradoxa medicinae, where he had favoured the classical Greek medical sources and criticized the Arabic physicians and their recent European adherents.Browned and foxed throughout and with a few lines, words headings and paragraphs crossed out, but still in good condition.

En Valladolid, en la imprenta de la Viuda de Joseph de Rueda, 1710. in-12. 152pp. Plein vélin souple du temps, titre manuscrit au dos, traces de liens. Célèbre roman de chevalerie initialement paru en 1513 et dont les éditions anciennes sont toutes introuvables et précieuses. Cette adaptation espagnole du roman provençal de Jaufré, elle-même inspirée d'une version française donnée par Philippe Camus, connut un grand succès en Espagne tout au long du 16e siècle. La rareté des éditions anciennes est telle que même la riche bibliothèque de Salvá ne possédait pas d'édition antérieure à celle-ci, également très rare. Cette édition de colportage porte sur le titre une vignette gravée sur bois représentant un chevalier en armure brandissant une lance, identique à celle qui figure notamment sur les premières éditions valenciennes de Don Quichotte de 1606 et 1616. Petite tache d'encre ancienne sur le titre. Quelques rousseurs. Très bon exemplaire dans son vélin souple d'origine. Palau, 326183 (qui ne cite que l'exemplaire de la Biblioteca Nacional de Madrid et celui vendu 100 pesetas par Vindel en 1929).

DURELL, Philip
London,: S. Harding, 1710. London,: S. Harding,, 1710. 1740. Engraved map with contemporary full-wash colour. Philip Durrell (1707-1766) was a British naval officer. He rose to the rank of Vice Admiral over a stellar career, participating in important naval victories including the Siege of Louisbourg in 1745, when a British fleet captured the city in the War of the Austrian Succession. This map was drawn when he was still a Lieutenant, serving under Admiral Vernon during his command of Jamaica during the War. The capture of Porto Bello occurred in the early stages of the War of Jenkin's Ear, which turned into the War of the Austrian Succession. The War of Jenkin's Ear began as the British fought the Spanish for the right to continue with slave contracts in Spanish America, developing into the War of the Austrian Succession as European powers ostensibly challenged Maria Theresa's claim to the Hapsburg throne, but in reality attempted to subsume Austrian possessions in Europe. Porto Bello was an important stronghold in the Caribbean, and a point of departure for Spanish bullion ships. Admiral Vernon took part in a failed attempt to stop a Spanish treasure fleet sailing from Porto Bello in 1727, and subsequently claimed that he could take the port with just six vessels. He was given the Jamaica command, and launched an expedition to Porto Bello in 1739, occupying the town for three weeks and rendering the key buildings unusable, destroying it as a viable port for Spanish ships. The British accomplished the occupation with only three lives lost. The resounding success of Por … [Click Below for Full Description]

XERES John
Printed by J. Heptinstall, for Anthony Barker, at St. Laurence-Lane End in Cheapside, 1710. 115 pp. 1p, Advertisement "Books printed for Anthony Barker" Octavo original brown sheep over stiff boards, re-backed (some time ago) to style, lettered in gilt on burgundy spine label "The author writes this book to persuade other Jews that Jesus Christ truly is their savior, and urges them to convert to the Christian faith. Xeres tells us that he was from a family of Spanish Jewish origin living in North African Saphia. He opens his book by addressing John, Archbishop of York (John Sharp, 1643-1714) and thanks him for sponsoring Xeres' own conversion. There is also a testimonial signed by seven British merchants who trade in "Barbary" telling the reader that the author (who is here called Jonah Ben Jacob Xeres) was employed by them in their establishment in North AFrica. ...persuaded by them at the age of about 25 that Jesus was indeed the promised Messiah. Xeeres then proceeded to England, they say, where he adopted Christianity with the aid of the learned Reverend Dr. Allix, who himself then tetifies briefly that Xeres is learned not only in the Old Testament, but also in the Jewish Talmud. The degree of the author's erudition is important because Jewish Converst to Christianity were commonly dismissed as being deficient in learning. Some rubbing of edges, title page with small nicks at lower edge Dedication leaf with inscription of William Worsley dated 1753.

Johann Otto Güsling
Un ensemble d'une très grande rareté. La biblia Pentapla est la toute première version d'une Bible "¿cuménique" et est l'Oeuvre de Glüsing, théologien protestant de la province d'Altona, près de Hamburg en Allemagne. La présence de fortes communautés Ménnonite, Spinoziste et juive dans cette région incita très certainement ce théologien à publier une Bible qui puisse être utilisée par tous, en langue Allemande et Flamande. Cette aventure commença avec le Nouveau Testament en 1710, suivi de l'Ancien en deux tomes, en 1711 et 1712. L'impression fut confiée à Hermann Heinrich HOLLE, à Gottorf. La Pentapla ici présentée est complète de ses trois volumes, dans une reliure d'attente de l'époque. Tome I & II : Ancien Testament (Des Alten Testament). Texte sur 5 colonnes : Traduction de l'Eglise Catholique Romaine par Caspar ULENBERG. Traduction de l'Eglise Evangélique Luthérienne par Martin LUTHER. Traduction de l'Eglise Evangélique Réformée par Johann PISCATOR. Traduction hébraïque vers l'Allemand par Joseph ATHIAE. Traduction Hollandaise. Page de titre en Noir et Rouge pour le tome I. Tome I (1711) : [XVII] + 1650 pp ; Tome II (1712) : 1076 + 584 (les Apocryphes) pp. La page de titre du Tome I est en partie détachée, quelques attaques de vers dans le premier tome.

SENEX, John (1678-1740)
London, 1710. Engraved map on two sheets joined, hand-coloured in outline. Expert repairs to the side margins, with minor losses to the neat line and gradients in expert facsimile. An early and important large-scale English map of North America.This decorative map provided the English speaking world with a highly detailed depiction of North America and one of the earliest large-scale English maps of the region. The area covered includes the Hudson's Bay and Arctic regions, as well as the explored portions of the American west. Dedicated to Anthony Hammond, Commissioner in Her Majesty's Navy (whose arms appear on the map below the decorative cartouche), the map incorporates data from Guillaume De L'Isle's landmark mapping of the region (his 'Carte du Mexique et de la Floride' in particular). Senex, however, also made significant improvements to the earlier maps, particularly in his depictions of the Great Lakes region as well as the lower Mississippi delta: the result is probably the most accurate English depiction of its time. There is also much valuable textual information given on the map, including Native American place names, and notes on the discovery of many remote areas, most notably Lahontan's mythical Long River.The present example is an intermediate state between Stevens & Tree A and B; i.e. without John Maxwell's imprint but before the addition of the Bowles imprint.Degrees of Latitude pp.110-113; Stevens & Tree, "Comparative Cartography" 61a, in Tooley, The Mapping of America ; Wagner, Cartography of the Northwest Coast 495; Wheat, Mapping the Transmissi … [Click Below for Full Description]

An unidentified heraldic bookplate on front pastedown of each volume. Signature of "John Fletcher" (no relation - that I know of!) on front fly of vol.1. Very fine condition.The heraldic bookplate, which has so far defied identification, contains a lozenge-shaped shield, denoting a lady, and the motto "Spectamur Agendo", which we take to be a mistake on the part of the engraver for "Spectemur Agendo". This, together with various other similarities, and the supporters, two lions embattled, seems to indicate a member of the family of Boyle, earls of Shannon.

LEIBNIZ, Gottfried Wilhelm.
Berlin: Johann Christian Papen, 1710. First edition, rare, of this milestone in computer history, Leibniz's description of his famous calculating machine, the first stepped-drum calculator, and the first machine that could perform multiplication and division. "Leibniz studied Morland's and Pascal's various designs and set himself the task of constructing a more perfect and efficient machine. To begin with, he improved Pascal's device by adding a stepped-cylinder to represent the digits 1 through 9 ... In 1694, Leibniz built his calculating machine, which was far superior to Pascal's and was the first general purpose calculating device able to meet the major needs of mathematicians and bookkeepers" (Rosenberg, The Computer Prophets, p 48). "[He] invented a device now known as the Leibniz wheel and still in use in some machines . The mechanism enabled him to build a machine which surpassed Pascal's in that it could do not only addition and subtraction fully automatically but also multiplication and division. Leibniz's device enabled his machine to perform the operation of multiplication automatically by repeated additions. His idea was apparently re-invented in 1820 by Charles Xavier de Colmar" (Goldstine, The Computer from Pascal to Neumann, p. 7). Although Leibniz demonstrated his machine before the Royal Society and elsewhere, no description of it appeared in print until in the present form. It is contained in the first volume of the journal of the Berlin Academy of Science, which Leibniz founded. Although the volume is naturally present in some institutional holdings, it … [Click Below for Full Description]

BIBLE. GERMAN. 1710.
Gedruck und verlegt durch Herman Heinrich Hole Buchdr. in Wandesbeck bey Hambrug, 1710. 34Five versions in parallel columns. Only one German version of the N.T. Apocrypha. The Jewish version of the Old Testament is by Josef Witzenhausen rather than Athias--see the British Museum Catalog the Jewish Encyclopedia article on Athias. Darlow Moule 4227 3434This edition of the whole Bible embodies four principal German versions viz. those of Ulenberg Catholic Luther Piscator Reformed and Athias-Reitz.3434 Johann Otto Glsing the editor and compiler of the Biblia Pentalpa was also the editor of Jakob Bhmes works and the founder of the ascetic Angelbrothers society. 3434Glsing was a key part of a group of separatists and spiritualists who gathered in Altona a hotbed of Spinozists Mennonites radical Pietists and Jews in the early years of the eighteenth century. The Biblia Pentapla represented for Glsing an entirely new direction for the German Bible. Because in Glsings words different German translators.have different dialects the Biblia Pentapla would provide all Germans with access to all the all the translations. The side-by-side placement of representative biblical texts was to serve then both as an ecumenical bridge between readers giving them a common language of religions and a means to unify a Bible divide by centuries of confessional strife. On the one hand the Biblia Pentapla--like the venerable scholarly tradition of the polyglot Bible--used techniques of accumulation to weave a web fine enough to capture Gods Word. As such it was linked with the formal conventions of bibl … [Click Below for Full Description]

LEIBNIZ, Gottfried Wilhelm.
Johann Christian Papen, Berlin. First edition, rare, of this milestone in computer history, Leibniz’s description of his famous calculating machine, the first stepped-drum calculator, and the first machine that could perform multiplication and division. "Leibniz studied Morland’s and Pascal’s various designs and set himself the task of constructing a more perfect and efficient machine. To begin with, he improved Pascal’s device by adding a stepped-cylinder to represent the digits 1 through 9 In 1694, Leibniz built his calculating machine, which was far superior to Pascal’s and was the first general purpose calculating device able to meet the major needs of mathematicians and bookkeepers" (Rosenberg, The Computer Prophets, p 48). "[He] invented a device now known as the Leibniz wheel and still in use in some machines . The mechanism enabled him to build a machine which surpassed Pascal’s in that it could do not only addition and subtraction fully automatically but also multiplication and division. Leibniz’s device enabled his machine to perform the operation of multiplication automatically by repeated additions. His idea was apparently re-invented in 1820 by Charles Xavier de Colmar" (Goldstine, The Computer from Pascal to Neumann, p. 7). Although Leibniz demonstrated his machine before the Royal Society and elsewhere, no description of it appeared in print until in the present form. It is contained in the first volume of the journal of the Berlin Academy of Science, which Leibniz founded. Although the volume is naturally present in some institutional holdings, it is absent … [Click Below for Full Description]

UNKNOWN
ont> Printed and Sold by the Booksellers of London and Westminster : London, 1710 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition.. A very scarce first edition of this unusual poem, penned by an unknown eighteenth century poet. The work is a political allegory, exploring the speaker Calidor's attempts to woo Mira. Calidor, the speaker is intrigued by Mira, a female who is in mourning as her suiter Candor has recently been killed by Calidor. She is also mourning the absence of her friend Sacer, whom has recently been imprisoned by Calidor. Calidor compares himself favourably to Candor and says that despite his death 'There yet Ramins a Lover who for You/ Shall all that's in his power ever do. ' He promises to leave Amalea Calidor as he caused her bereavement, 'That since of Candor I Did you bereave,/ Amalea Calidor to you thou'd Leave'. Calidor describes his life in court, and his service to Serena, of Alba, likely to be Queen Anne. He promises that if Mira were to choose him, he would leave his active service. It has been suggested that Calidor could be associated with a range of eighteenth century courtiers, one of whom being Thomas, first Earl of Wharton. The author of this work is unknown. It has been attributed to Matthew Prior and Elkanah Settle. However, most recent scholars refute the claims that this is the work of Prior and feel that Settle is also an unlikely candidate.

Sousa, Francisco de
First edition. Sousa (1628 - 1713) was a Brazilian-born Jesuit, historian, traveller, and chronicler of the Order; in 1655 he left for Goa, where most of his life would be spent, until his death in 1712. The time spent working in Asia, as well as his presumably relatively unrestricted access to information, contributed to the confection of a comprehensive history of the progress of European settlements in Africa, Arabia, and India, as well as the most significant navigations, explorations and shipwrecks, carrying missionaries from Europe to the Eastern posts (China, Japan and Malacca). The work is remarkable in its attention to detail and critical spirit. Given the strategic position of Goa on the Portuguese route to the Far East, this work has many references to China, Japan and Malacca. A third part of this work was written but was never published, the manuscript being preserved in the Jesuit College at Lisbon. "Only the first two parts appeared of his Oriente Conquistado, the third being retained at the College of Jesuits in Lisbon. The first edition with the engraved frontispiece is very rare" (Borba de Moraes). The illustration comprises two frontispieces and two engraved plates, one of the them showing the Orb (Africa and the Middle East) with inset maps of the Middle East and Japan under Jesus Christ, and above Jesuit missionaries, one holding the banner of the Society and the other stepping on a lion and about to slay another -both with a group of locals behind them; the Dedicatoriasshow Sousa kneeling down presenting his book to an Angel, with his des … [Click Below for Full Description]

Complete set of M'sieur Bayle's exploration of people and ideas of his time. Bayle wrote these in response to a previous historical dictionary which he found full of errors.

Occasional pencil marks. Some foxing. All four have matching title pages with vignette of Athena instructing little cherubs.
