        A Roman Story

      London: s.n, "Printed in the Year 1711. Price Two Pence" - A Whig satire on Harley, Lord Oxford, and on the Tory opposition to Marlborough, using Livy's story of the rivalry of M. Manlius and Camillus as a framework, with Harley as Manlius ("a turbulent, bold, and crafty Nature"); Marlborough as Camillus ("the great Saviour and Restorer of his Country"), and the Gauls, of course, the French. In 1711, Harley was appointed Lord Treasurer, and Marlborough dismissed from all offices. The attribution to Steele is likely, as he was allied with (and profited from) the Whigs. A rare and important pamphlet at critical time in English history, when the Tories were negotiating a peace with France to end the War of the Spanish Succession First edition. 8vo. Title page with typographical ornaments. 16pp. Self wrappers, untrimmed. Title and final page a bit soiled, otherwise a very good, sound copy.

Jean Van BROEKHUIZEN (Amsterdam, 1640-1707) est un poète et érudit hollandais dont les oeuvres sont rares. Après avoir reçu une bonne éducation littéraire, il resta quelque temps chez un apothicaire, puis il prit du service, devint lieutenant, fut envoyé en Amérique sur la flotte de Ruyter en 1674, et revint en Hollande l'année suivante. Se trouvant à Utrecht, il prit part à un duel et encourut pour ce fait la peine de mort ; mais, grâce à l'intervention du savant Groevius, il fut sauvé. Après avoir été quelque temps capitaine dans la milice à Amsterdam, Broekhuizen se retira à Amstelveen où il passa les dernières années de sa vie, se livrant entièrement alors à son goût pour la littérature. Outre ses "Poésies latines", publiées à Utrecht (1684), on a de lui des "Poésies hollandaises" très élégantes, mais peu nombreuses, ainsi que des éditions de Properce, de Catulle, de Sannazar, etc. BEL EXEMPLAIRE, grand de marges, dans un beau maroquin du temps.

      London: Printed for D Brown, 1711 [ii],xxix,[vii],191,[1]blank, 223 pages with 1 of 3 large fold out maps and 15 of 19 engraved fold out plates. Octavo (8" x 5") bound 3/4 leather with marbled boards. Edited by Sir Tancred Robinson. 2d edition. First published in 1694, which contained only two maps, The book is important because it contains on of the earliest English accounts of Abel Janszoon Tasman's famous voyage of 1642 from Batavia, during which he discovered Tasmania and New Zealand and vited Tonga and Fiji (Hill 1475). Rear Admiral Sir John Narborough, RN was an English naval commander of the 17th century, who served with distinction during the Anglo-Dutch Wars and against the Barbary Coast pirates. He was descended from an old Norfolk family. He received his commission in 1664, and in 1666 was promoted lieutenant for gallantry in the action with the Dutch fleet off the Downs in June of that year. After the peace he was chosen to conduct a voyage of exploration in the South Seas. He set sail from Deptford on November 26, 1669, and entered the Straits of Magellan in October of the following year. In 1670 he visited Port Desire in Argentina and claimed the territory for the Kingdom of Great Britain, but returned home in June 1671 without accomplishing his original purpose. A narrative of the expedition was published at London in 1694 under the title An Account of several late Voyages and Discoveries to the South and North. During the Third Anglo-Dutch War Narborough was second captain of the Lord High Admiral's ship the Prince, and conducted himself with such conspicuous valor at the battle of Sol (Southwold Bay) in May 1672 that he won special approbation, and shortly afterwards was made rear-admiral and knighted. In 1675 he was sent to suppress the Tripoline piracies, and by the bold expedient of dispatching gun-boats into the harbor of Tripoli at midnight and burning the ships he induced the them to agree to a treaty. Shortly after his return he undertook a similar expedition against the Algerians. In 1680 he was appointed commissioner of the Navy, an office he held till his death. He was buried at Knowlton church, Kent, where a monument has been erected to his memory. The island of Fernadina, the youngest and westernmost island of the Galapagos Archipelago, was originally named 'Narborough Island' in his honor by the 17th century buccaneer William Ambrosia Cowley. Condition: Marginal foxing, soiling and damp staining through out, paper fault across second C2 affecting one letter, some rubbing hinges and corners else a better than good copy. . Second Edition.

        Sphaera Armillaris Copernicana.

      Amsterdam, 1711 - Fine broadside illustrating the so-called "Leiden Sphere" Hand-coloured engraved broadsheet. Fine broadside illustrating the so-called "Leiden Sphere," engraved by Pieter Vander Aa in Leiden. The Leiden Sphere, a mechanical armillary sphere or orrery, was built around 1670 by the clockmaker Steven Tracy, for the mayor of Rotterdam. It is among the earliest and most elaborate mechanical planetaria to be operated by a clockwork mechanism. The device depicts the Copernican solar system, in which the Earth and the other planets revolve around a stationary sun. In order of distance from the sun, the Sphere includes Mercury, Venus, the Earth (with its moon), Mars, Jupiter with the four Galilean satellites, and Saturn. The mechanism in the base of the Sphere regulates an accurate representation of the orbital periods of each of the planets and their inclined orbits around the sun. In 1710, this magnificent piece was given to the University of Leiden, where it could be seen in operation for more than a century. Tracy incorporated 2 vertical brass rings (1.5 meters in diameter), which support a wide zodiac-band (28.6 cm) composed of embossed constellation figures cur from sheet brass and mounted in rectangular frames. The Sphere sits on a wooden cube (84 cm tall). A 13 cm clock-face at the top of the pedestal displays the time and slot apertures indicated the day, month and year. Among the notable features of the Sphere, it was the first such device to incorporate a geared model of Jupiter's system. The basic design is similar to that of the Romer - Horrebow ceiling planetarium, but with a number of important additions, including the incorporation of offset cams to give the model planets a Keplerian motion similar to those on the Rittenhouse orreries. The Saturn cam is inclined, whereas the other planets (other than earth), the cams are horizontal. Following receipt, the Sphere was thoroughly overhauled by the Den Haag clockmaker Bernard van der Cloesen. The Leiden Sphere still resides in Leiden in the Rijksmuseum. The illustration provides an excellent depiction of the sphere, although it omits the eccentric collars, but adds a ring for the celestial equator and a spindle that passes upwards through the sun. There are apparently two editions of the broadside, one in French and Dutch (the present example) and one in English and Dutch. Both are exceedingly rare. The original English translation of the text is as follows: THE AUTOMATICK OR SELF-MOVING SPHERE, Mended and repair'd by THRASIUS, Which was done by the Invention and direction of Mr. ADRIAN VROESIUS, according to the Calculation of NICOLAS STAMPIOEN. Which was given to the Publick use by the Widdow and Heirs of Mr. SEBASTIAN SCHEPERS, Late SENATOR of the City of Rotterdam, &c. &c. &c. Now improv'd and put in better order by BERNARD CLOESEN. Which the CURATORS of the University of LEYDEN, and BURGERMASTERS of the City have presented for the benefit and encouragement of Learning & Astronomy, in the Year MDCCXI. Description of the Armillary Copernican Sphere. THE whole Sphere is made of brass and likewise the greater Circles, (viz.) the ?Üquator, the two Colures, and the Eclyptick, which divides the Zodiack in two equal parts with respect to its latitude, hence the Zodiack has ten degrees of latitude on each side, the twelve signs upon the Zodiack are done with chas'd work and their names mark'd upon the Eclyptick. The Eclyptick 3 is divided into degrees and half degrees, the Diameter of each of these Circles and consequently of the whole Sphere is five Rhinland feet. The Sphere stands upon a Pedestal of three feet high, in which is enclos'd a Clock with its Pendulum and weights which goes nine days without winding up, and may be made to goe longer at pleasure, it not only shews the years, the months, the days, the hours and minutes, but likewise the motions of all the Planets both primary and secondary, in which the Earth is reckon'd, accoording to the Copernican Systeme, if you

Lo Chardin (Parigi, 1643-Chiswick, 1713), che di professione era gioielliere e discendeva da una famiglia di Ugonotti, svolse il suo viaggio in Persia nel 1664, accompagnato dal mercante lionese Antoine Raisin, allo scopo in parte di acquistarvi gemme preziose e in parte per appagare il proprio desiderio di viaggiare. Il viaggio, che valse allo Chardin il patrocinio del monarca safavide Shah Abbas II e di suo figlio Safi Mirza, fruttò una gran messe di osservazioni di ogni genere e lo condusse sino in India; il viaggio fu ripetuto nel 1671, compiendo un avventuroso tragitto attraverso la Turchia, Crimea, il Caucaso, la Mingrelia e la Georgia e raggiungendo Isfahan solo nel 1673. Lo Chardin rimase in Persia sino al 1677, tornando nuovamente in India e tornando in Europa nel 1680 dopo aver doppiato il Capo di Buona Speranza. Riparato in Inghilterra a motivo della sua fede protestante e delle persecuzioni cui i riformati furono sottoposti in tale paese, divenne in seguito gioielliere di corte di Carlo II a Londra. Trasferitosi poi in Olanda, dopo alcuni anni fece stabilmente ritorno in Inghilterra; alla sua morte venne sepolto nell'Abbazia di Westminster. I suoi "Voyages", fra le più celebri relazioni mai scritte di viaggio in Persia, ammirati da Montesquieu come da Voltaire, da Gibbon come da Rousseau, costituiscono una fonte storica ed etnografica di eccezionale importanza. Nella voce dedicata allo Chardin nell'Encyclopaedia Iranica, John Emerson nota come le informazioni raccolte dal viaggiatore francese sulla Persia safavide superino di gran lunga quelle fornite da tutti gli altri scrittori occidentali per estensione, profondità ed accuratezza. "Chardin’s massive work, along with many other accounts of travel to exotic lands, contributed to formation of one of the great streams of European knowledge leading to what Paul Hazard called "la crise de la conscience européenne" and hence to the Enlightenment. Some of his ideas, for example, on the influence of climate on man, had a considerable impact, and his work was read and commented on favorably by a number of great 18th-century figures like Charles-Louis de Montesquieu, Edward Gibbon, Voltaire, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and William Jones." (Emerson). Atabey, 219. Chahine, 912. Brunet, I, 1802: "Ce Voyage est un des plus intéressants que l'on ait publiés dans le siècle dernier. L'édition que nous citons est assez belle, et les exemplaires bien conditionnées en sont peu commun". Emerson, cit. Giuseppe Caraci in Enciclopedia Italiana, IX, 936: "La prima edizione completa fu stampata ad Amsterdam nel 1711". . Ghani, pp 70-73. Diba, p. 238. Schwab, 87. Wilson, p. 40.

        Halakhot Parah aduma [Hilkhot parah adumah] =R. Mosis Maimonidis Tractatus de vacca rufa : Latinitate donatus & subjuncta ampliore hujus ritus explicatione quoad singulas circumstantias illustratus

      Christian Petzold, Amsterdam 1711 - 12mo. 5pp. (12). 544pp. 3/4 vellum over decorated paper-covered boards with brown handwritten lettering to spine. Scuffing, abrasions and discoloration to boards and spine. All maroon page edges. 2 Ex libris- plates pasted-in on front endpaper: 1) Ex libris Rev. Joseph Jaquett. Presented by Edwin Jaquett Sellers. 1902. 2) Library of the Protestant Episcopal Divinity School, Philadelphia. Perforation to title page: "Philadelphis Divinity School." Signature and date to title page: "Joseph Jaquette. June 20th. 1825." Some age browning and welling to pages not affecting text. Magnificent translation of one of the tracates of the "Mishne Torah," a code of Jewish law by one of the most important Jewish authorities, Rabbi Moshe ben Maimon, better known as Maimonides or by the Hebrew abbreviation RaMBaM (1135-1204). The Mishneh Torah was compiled between 1170 and 1180, while he was living in Egypt, and is regarded as Maimonides' magnum opus. This tractate deals with the "Parah aduma" or red cow aka red heifer, a cow that is sacrificed and whose ashes are used for the ritual purification of people who came into contact with a corpse. In Hebrew and Latin. Overall in good condition. R. Moses Maimonides (Rambam) was a 12th century Jewish philosopher and halachic legal scholar. A highly controversial figure, both during his lifetime and after his death, but generally acknowledged as the preeminent Jewish thinker of the Middle Ages. He was born in Córdoba, Spain but fled as a child from the Almohad persecution. He eventually settled in Egypt where he served as a rabbi, physician and philosopher. His fourteen-volume Mishneh Torah, his only work not in Arabic, still carries canonical authority, particularly within the Yemenite Jewish community, as the codification of Talmudic law. His other work includes a commentary on the Mishnah entitled Kitab al-Siraj, Kitab al-Fara'I, a book on precepts, and the philosophical work Dalalat al-Ha'irin, known in Hebrew as the Moreh Nevukhim, The Guide to the Perplexed. The major premise is an attempted philosophical/theological reconciliation of the Hebrew Bible and Greek knowledge. This work came to play a central role in all subsequent major controversies over philosophy within the Jewish community during the Middle Ages. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Trajecti ad Rhenum : ex off. G. Vande Water. [Utrecht], 1711.. [Titel in rot/schwarz gedruckt mit gestochener Vignette.[41] -248 -[18] S. mit ausfaltbarer Kupfertafel und einer ausfaltbaren Stammtafel. 4° Ganzpergament der Zeit mit handschriftlichem Rückentitel.. Graesse II, 465. Sehr wohlerhaltenes und sauberes Exemplar. Einhard (Namensform Eginhard nicht zeitgenössisch), Historiker, Vertrauter Karls des Großen, * um 770, 14.3.840 Seligenstadt/Main."Im Kloster Fulda erzogen, wurde Einhard zu weiterer Ausbildung von Abt Baugulf an den Hof Karls des Großen entsandt, wo er seit dem Weggang Alkuins nach Tours führend an der Hofschule hervortrat. Seine Kenntnis der Baukunst, seine kunsthandwerkliche Begabung, von der ein durch eine späte Zeichnung bekannt gewordener kleiner silberner Ehrenbogen zeugt, und seine literarischen Kenntnisse gewannen ihm das Vertrauen Karls, der ihn zum Aufseher seiner Bauten und der zur Aachener Pfalz gehörigen kunstgewerblichen Werkstätten ernannte; dieses Amt trug ihm im Hofkreise den Beinamen Beseleel ein, nach dem biblischen Werkmeister der Stiftshütte. Auch Karls Sohn Ludwig, der ihn reich mit Abteien beschenkte, bewahrte ihm seine Gunst. Doch hat sich Einhard dem neuen Kaiser (814-40), dessen Schwäche im Laufe der 20er Jahre deutlich hervortrat, immer stärker entfremdet und sich schließlich ganz vom Hofe nach Seligenstadt zurückgezogen, wohin er die 827 aus Rom erworbenen Reliquien der Heiligen Marcellinus und Petrus überführen ließ. Der lebendige Bericht Einhards über diese Translation - wie seine Briefe auch eine wichtige Quelle der Zeitgeschichte - tritt aber an Bedeutung zurück hinter seinem Hauptwerk, der (wohl im Anfang der 30er Jahre entstandenen) Vita Karoli Magni. Hier zeigt sich Einhard auf der Höhe der sogenannten "Karolingischen Renaissance". Gerade die am klassischen Vorbild geschulte Sprache und ein sehr bewußtes Verhältnis zum Vorbild Sueton sowie die intime Kenntnis seines Helden befähigten ihn, ein monumentales Herrscherbild von einer individuellen Treffsicherheit zu entwerfen, wie sie sonst im Mittelalter kaum zu finden ist. Dabei ließ er im Lob des großen Karl die Kritik an dem schwachen Nachfolger leise, aber unüberhörbar anklingen. Einhard, ein Laie, aber als Laienabt mehrerer Klöster auch theologisch interessiert, verkörpert die im Mittelalter seltene literarische Laienbildung, die gerade im Kreise Karls des Großen vorübergehend aufblühte." NDB 4, S. 396.

Horatius Flaccus, ex recensione & cum notis atque emendationibus Richardi Bentleii.Cambridge: [University Press], 1711.Two quarto volumes (9 x 7 3/8 inches; 230 x 188 mm.). [28], 310; [4], 460 pp. Complete with added engraved title-page dated 1708 and half-title. Engraved printer\'s device on title-pages.Contemporary full paneled calf, double-fillet borders rolled in blind, triple-fillet center compartment rolled in blind with blind floral stamps at corners, spines tooled in gilt in compartments, five raised bands, gilt red morocco lettering piece, gilt board edges, all edges sprinkled red. Very occasional light spotting. Faint moisture stains to outer top and fore-edges of volume I, most visible on last two signatures. Boards with some edgewear, three of four headcaps perished, joints starting but boards still holding tight. Some spotting to boards. Frontispiece slightly darkened. Overall a very attractive, notably clean and bright copy.\"Probably no other poet\'s works have been so often copied or printed, and hundreds of versions in every modern language have been made of the least translatable of poets. Certainly Horace far outstrips all competitors when it comes to pocket editions: all over the world, where the libraries or even the smaller collections of personalia of the great have been preserved, a well-worn pocket Horace is very frequently among them. ... In 1711 Bentley was fighting against the angry fellows of Trinity College, Cambridge, who were petitioning the College Visitor, the Bishop of Ely, to remove him from the Mastership. Bentley wished to enlist the support of the Crown (which appoints the master), and he did it -- by dedicating his edition of Horace to Harley, then Prime Minister.\"Bentley (1662-1742) was and remains the greatest of English classical scholars. His reputation was made by his Dissertation on Phalaris, the final crushing blow in the \'Battle of the Books\' ... His immense learning was combined with an equal control in its deployment. Athough he here restricted himself entirely to criticism of the text, and refrained from comment or explanation, in fact his feeling for Horace is revealed in the seven or eight hundred emendations, many of which have found permanent acceptance. Bold yet sensitive, deeply learned and at the same time understanding, his edition is a compound, as Bentley was himself, of temerity, authority and subtlety\" (Printing and the Mind of Man, pp. 106-107).Printing and the Mind of Man 178.HBS 65380.$2,500

First edition of this rare utopia, set on a South American island, of unknown authorship (although the preface is signed E.R.V.F.L.). The piety and religion of the island are stressed, as a direct comment on the decadent state of European society. The narrative explains that the island had been sliding into corruption and godlessness until society was 'gradually reformed by men's reasoning their way to discover the best procedures' (Gibson). The society they create shares many of its basic tenets with Plato's Republic, most obviously the fact that children are taught and shared communally to avoid the excessive indulgence of parents. All of the people are descendants of the marriage between a French merchant and his wife Marie, who had ten children. The comparison is made with the tribes of Israel: 'Comme le peuple juif descendoit d'un seul Abraham, les Eutopiens descendent tous d'un seul homme.'.

        A Correct Map of Moscovy humbly Dedicated to the Honourable S.r Thomas Powell of Broadway in Carmarthen Shire Baronet and Knight of the Shire for the Said County.

      1711 - London, G. Willdey and T. Brandreth, 1711[-3]. Two sheets conjoined, total 980 x 650mm. Repairs to folds as usual in these large maps, toning from old glue on join. A two-sheet map of Russia, originally prepared by Price for his unsuccessful partnership with John Senex and John Maxwell (1708-1711). After the partnership broke up, each member kept the plates that they had engraved, with Senex taking the most and re-issuing them in his 'English Atlas' from 1714. In 1713 Willdey acquired the remainder of Price's stock and began to issue them in a further ill-fated partnership with Timothy Brandreth, as this example. By the end of the year Willdey was advertising the remaining stock of maps at a heavily discounted price. The plate has been re-engraved with the words 'Petersbourg a Town built by the Csar'. Peter the Great moved the capital from Moscow to St. Petersburg in 1712.

        Bibliothecae Josephi Renati Imperialis Sanctae Romanae Ecclesia Diaconi Cardinalis Sancti Georgii, Catalogus Secundum Auctorum Cognomina Ordine Alphabetico Dispositus Unacum Altero Catalogo Scientiarum & Artium

      , 1711. 1711. Rome, Francisci Gonzaga, (1711). Titlepage, v,(i),738pp. Large engraved vignette on titlepage and several woodcut initials throughout the text. Folio. Contemporary vellum (corners bumped & hinges cracked at bottom). From the library of Prince Liechtenstein with his bookplate on the inner front cover. Also with the bookplate of H.P.K[raus] on the inside front cover. Some notes in a contemporary hand. (Occasionally some very light foxing and a couple of pages uniformly browed). First edition of the famous library of Cardinal Giuseppe Renato Imperiali (1651-1737), compiled by his librarian Giusto Fontanini (1666-1736). The library, which counted aout 20,000 titles, was rich in all fields of scholarship and science and unusually for the time, the first part (pp. 1-582) is arranged alphabetically by author. Pollard & Ehrman, p. 262 say: "the Imperiali catalogue if 1711 by Giusto Fontanini includes under each author's name all his contributions to the periodicals and miscellanies in the library as well as his separately published books. For this reason it was recognised as a useful work of reference on its own." In the second part (pp. 583-738) the titles are rearranged into subject categories. Upon the Cardinal's death the collection was bequeathed to the public. Peignot on page 104-105 call this catalogue "bien fait et très utile... Il seroit a désirer que les catalogues des grandes bibliothèques fussent ainsi rédigé..."
