        Hoogheemraadschap van Delfland - Cruquius, 1712.

      DE KAART VAN DELFLAND, MEESTERWERK VAN DE GEBR. CRUQUIUS"'T HOOGE HEEMRAEDSCHAP VAN DELFLANT" Kopergravure, verkleinde overzichtskaart uit de als atlas gebonden 25-bladige kaart van "'t Hoogheemraedschap van Delflant: met alle de Steden? Gemeten en in Kaerte gebracht Door (de Geadmitteerde Landmeters) Nicol. en Jac. Kruikius (Cruquius)". De kaart werd gedrukt op zijde (!) uitgegeven in 1712. Afm. ca. 52 x 58,5 cm.De kaart van Cruquius, waarvan de opdracht op 12 september 1702 werd verstrekt door het Hoogheemraadschap van Delfland, verscheen pas in 1712 in druk. De opname van het kaartboek heeft plaatsgevonden tot in het jaar 1707. In die tijd liepen Nicolaus Cruquius en zijn broer Jakob met kettingen door de polders van het Hoogheemraadschap van Delfland om de percelen land, de plaats van de gebouwen en die van wegen en vaarwegen in te meten.Het resultaat mag tot een van de hoogtepunten van de historische cartografie worden gerekend. Hij wist met deze hulpmiddelen een verbluffend nauwkeurige set landkaarten te vervaardigen die tegenwoordig kunnen worden gescand en met enig pas en meetwerk worden gegeorefereerd. Door de 18de-eeuwse kaart onder een moderne topografische kaart schaal 1:10.000 te leggen, wordt duidelijk hoe precies hij zijn waarnemingen heeft vastgelegd. Tot in de details geeft hij de plattegrond van gebouwen weer, krommingen in sloten, wegen en paden, ook die paden die slechts door mondelinge overlevering nog bij de buurtbewoners bekend zijn. Ook zijn beschrijvingen zijn uiterst doordacht. Door typografische trucjes toe te passen wist hij de naamgevingen zo over het kaartblad te verdelen dat de grenzen van bepaalde stukken land die bijeen behoorden, ook precies pasten tussen de eerste en de laatste letter van de naam die hij eraan gaf.Het vervaardigen van de grote kaart van Delfland kostte toen 20.000 gulden (!!).Hoewel de kaart niet bedoeld was om onderweg op reis te gebruiken, zijn er exemplaren van de overzichtskaart op zijde gedrukt, die wel handzaam konden worden opgevouwen en worden geraadpleegd.Het Hoogheemraadschap van Delfland was een overkoepelend waterschap, waarin een groot aantal kleinere waterschappen heeft gelegen. Deze waterschappen waren zelfstandig maar vielen ?f onder Rijnland, ?f waren inliggende waterschappen en sterk afhankelijk van Delfland.Prijs: Euro 1.950,- (incl. lijst).

        Cursus Mathematicus or a Compleat Course of the Mathematicks. in Five Volumes

      John Nicholson at the Queen's Arms in Little-Britain, sold by John Morphew 1712 - The complete set of five volumes, small quarto, in near-contemporary blind-panelled and decorated calf, raised bands and red title labels lettered "OZANAM'S MATHEMA" with the latin volume number beneath. All edges red speckled. Each volume inscribed "Ex Libris Johannis Booth 1737" (or similar), usually in the margin of the title page.Recent bookplates, of an FRS, on pastedowns. Probably bound for Johannis Booth, who does not appear among the 200 or so subscribers "as permitted them to be Printed" listed in the prelims. to volume 1.The pagination is as follows: Volume 1 (6),x,(4),1-288 Volume 2 (24),1-92,1-156,1-72,(8) Volume 3 (16),1-215,(1),1-131,(1),(10) Volume 4 (32),1-185,(7),(14), 1-204, (8) Volume 5 (16),1-166,(18),(292).

Many, many plates in addition to the text pages (yet to be counted). Two small areas of worm channels to free endpaper and first nine leaves (pin-hole-like to next two leaves) of the first volume. The top edges of the spines are somewhat finger-worn and two are beginning to split down to the top raised band,spine leather showing vertical creasing/hairline surface cracking, but essentially this is a very good set; it is a relief and an indication of the general condition that the labels are all present. More details on enquiry pending collation of the plates. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Obra clássica, impressa pela primeira vez no final do século XVII, segundo os conhecimentos náuticos portugueses. É verdadeiramente importante e valiosa para a cartografia, especialmente desde a edição de 1712, em que na realidade se fez uma nova obra debaixo do nome da edição anterior, introduzindo-se as gravuras das costas mais importantes para a navegação dos europeus. Entre os muitos capítulos destaca-se o Apêndice com algumas proposições geométricas e problemas astronómicos, o Roteiro das ilhas dos Açores e de Cabo Verde, Guiné, Angola, Brasil e Índias Ocidentais e Orientais, Costa de Espanha, Costa de Portugal e Mar Mediterrâneo, Roteiro e descrição da Ilhas Terceiras, Madeira, Canárias, e de Cabo Verde, Roteiro Da Terra Nova, dos Bacalhaus, etc. etc. Encadernação inteira de pele ao gosto da época. Inocêncio VI, 83. "Esta Arte de Navegar grangeou muita auctoridade, e foi por longos annos havida por texto em Portugal, merecendo não menos applausos dos hydrographos estrangeiros. Ainda em 1830 parece se tractava de fazer d’ella uma nova edição." " Esta obra que o auctor deixara quasi composta, foi publicada posthuma com additamnetos e emendas por seu filho Manuel Pimentel Villa-boas, que lhe sucedeo no cargo de cosmographo-mór." Barbosa Machado 3, 340. Borba de Moraes. Bibliogr. Bras. 2, 672. [EN] Binding: full calf. Arte de Navegar is a precise and practical treatise on navigation, charts, navigation tools, equation tables and nautical aids. This is a seminal text on navigation coming from the old Portuguese nautical tradition. Therefore a classic work although it has been first printed in the late seventeenth century, according to the old Portuguese nautical knowledge. It is really important and valuable for mapping, especially since the 1712 edition, which in reality was a new work under the name of the previous edition, introducing the maps of the most important coasts for European navigation. It is not limited to search Atlantic Ocean itineraries, but contains written instructions to follow the main routes of navigation all over the world, giving a concise briefing to captains and crews in their voyages to the coasts of Guinea, Angola, Brazil, Indies (West and Eastern) and the Far East (China, Macau, Philippines, etc.). Illustrated with 3 engravings representing navigational instruments, a table of tangents to use the astrolabe, compass, circle of the sphere to find tides, plus 18 h. t. charts: 1st Honda Bay and Puerto Rico, 2nd Havana and Porto Belo. 3rd St. Juan de ullu Bay and Matanzas. 4th Cape of Good Hope and Baia [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Topographische Vorstellung der Neuen Russischen Haupt-Residenz und See-Stadt St. Petersburg samt ihrer zu erst aufgerichten Vestug

      Homann, Johann Baptist, Nuremburg - Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 19" x 22.75". Page size 21.5" x 25" Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 19" x 22.75". Page size 21.5" x 25". This elaborate plan of St. Petersburg describes the new capital literally, allegorically, and contextually. Published only a few years after the capital was declared in 1712, the map's primary feature is a plan of the city that demonstrates the lofty plans of Peter the Great to transform its geography. In addition to the present layout of the capital, it also shows the grid of canals intended for Vasiliesvsky Island. In pursing this design by an Italian architect, Peter I hoped to mold St. Petersburg in the image of established European cities such as Venice. His hope of re-locating the city center to this island was never realized, as it proved too prone to flooding, but the area today still bears the general structure set out by the canal plan. Above the plan, a map situates St. Petersburg in the mouth of the River Neva in relation to important surrounding forts, and on the right, a vignette shows the fort at Kronstadt. Most impressive, however, is the title cartouche in the upper right corner, in which a framed portrait of Peter I presides over a grouping of allegorical figures of the arts and sciences. The cartouche's references to the arts and sciences including geography, ship-building, and medicine give further credence to Peter I's desire to establish a capital on par with the greatest of European examples. The map is in excellent condition with no chips or tears and only minor wear along the original fold. Bright paper and vivid hand coloring accentuate the detail and majesty of this impressive map.Johann Baptist Homann (1664-1724) was a renowned German mapmaker of the late 17th and early 18th century, including being geographer to the Holy Roman Emperor. His business was carried on through the 18th century by the Homann Heirs, also prolific and popular mapmakers.

La fortuna di quest'opera si deve attribuire in definitiva non solo alla pura dottrina giuridica, bensì anche alle numerose pagine dedicate, direttamente o indirettamente, alla sfera intima nell'ambito matrimoniale.

        Historiae coelestis libri duo: quorum prior exhibet catalogum stellarum fixarum Britannicum novum & locupletissimum, una cum earundem planetarumque omnium observationibus sextante, micrometro, &c. habitis; posterior transitus syderum per planum arcus meridionalis et distantias eorum a vertice complectitur. Observante Johanne Flamsteedio in Observatorio Regio Grenovicensi continua serie ab anno 1676 ad annum 1705 completum.

      London: John Matthews, 1712. The true first edition, extremely rare, of Flamsteed's catalogue of fixed stars and sextant observations, the foundation of modern observational astronomy. Flamsteed's catalogue was far more extensive and accurate than anything that had gone before. It was the first constructed with instruments using telescopic sights and micrometer eyepieces; Flamsteed was the first to study systematic errors in his instruments; he was the first to urge the fundamental importance of using clocks and taking meridian altitudes; and he insisted on having assistants to repeat the observations and the calculations. The catalogue contains about 3000 naked eye stars (Ptolemy and Tycho listed 1000, Hevelius 2000) with an accuracy of about 10 seconds of arc. However, Flamsteed, although appointed Astronomer Royal in 1675, by the turn of the eighteenth century had still not published any of his observations. Isaac Newton and Edmond Halley pressed him to do so; Flamsteed's refusal led to one of the most famous, and bitterest, disputes in the history of astronomy, and to the present work being published against Flamsteed's will. Flamsteed's response, in 1716, was to destroy 300 of the 400 copies printed, so just a few years after publication no more than 100 copies survived. Flamsteed published his own, 'authorised', version of his star catalogue in 1725. ABPC/RBH list three copies: 1. Sotheby's, April 3, 1985, lot 287, £11,000; Bonham's, November 26, 1975, lot 171, £5,400; previously sold: Sotheby's, May 7, 1935, lot 98, £29 (Halley's annotated copy, lacking the star catalogue). 3. Sotheby's, May 7, 1935, lot 99, £10.10s (the present copy). OCLC lists 11 copies in the US. Provenance: Edward Henry Columbine (1763-1811), hydrographer and colonial governor (signature 'E. H. Columbine' on title); Radcliffe Observatory, Oxford (Sotheby's Catalogue of the Valuable Library Removed From, The Radcliffe Observatory, Oxford, Tuesday, 7th May, 1935). "Born a somewhat sickly child at Denby, near Derby, Flamsteed's condition seems to have worsened in 1660 by what sounds like an attack of rheumatic fever. He was taken away from school and devoted himself to the study of mathematics and astronomy. A visit to Ireland in 1665 to be touched by Vincent Greatrakes, a famous healer of the day as a seventh son of a seventh son, had no effect upon his health. Shortly afterwards, however, his work began to be noticed by a number of Fellows of the Royal Society. Amongst these was Sir Jonas Moore, who was considering building a private observatory for Flamsteed. It proved unnecessary, for in 1675 Flamsteed was appointed to be the first Astronomer Royal by Charles II. As the first holder of the post, Flamsteed was responsible for the building and organisation of the new observatory at Greenwich. He also found that on a salary of £100 a year he was expected to engage and pay his own staff, and to provide his own instruments. Although some instruments were donated by Moore and others, Flamsteed still found it necessary to spend £120 of his own money on a mural arc. Made and divided by Abraham Sharp it was ready for use in September 1689. As a result of this expenditure, all observations made after 1689 seemed to Flamsteed to be unarguably his own property, and his to do with as he willed. "He met Newton for the first time in Cambridge in 1674. The first substantial issue between them arose over the nature of the comet of 1680-1. Newton was convinced that two comets were present and in letters to Flamsteed argued so at length. Flamsteed, however, insisted only one comet was present, a position Newton finally accepted in September 1685. Relations remained cordial and in 1687 Flamsteed was one of the few scholars selected to receive a presentation copy of Principia. It contained, he noted, only 'very slight acknowledgements' to his Greenwich observations. "On 1 September 1694 Newton paid his first visit to Greenwich. He spoke with Flamsteed about the moon. Newton was keen to examine Flamsteed's lunar data in order to correct and improve the lunar theory presented in Principia. Flamsteed offered to loan Newton 150 'places of the moon' on two conditions: firstly, that Newton would not show the work to anyone else; secondly, and more unreasonably, Newton would have to agree not to reveal any results derived from Flamsteed's observations to any other scholar. It was the beginning of an ill-tempered dispute which would last until Flamsteed's death. His own version of the quarrel is contained in his History of his own Life and Labors published in Baily (An Account of the Revd John Flamsteed (1966), pp. 7-105). It is a most bitter document. "None of Newton's proposals found favour with Flamsteed. The offer in November 1694 'to gratify you to your satisfaction' brought the answer that he was not tempted with 'covetousness' and the lament that Newton could have ever thought so meanly of him. An offer in 1695 to pay Flamsteed's scribe two guineas for his transcriptions brought an equally forthright rejection. It was enough, Newton was told, to offer 'verball acknowledgements'; a 'superfluity of monys', he found, 'is always pernicious to my Servants it makes them run into company and wast their time Idly or worse'. If Newton asked for 'your Observations only', Flamsteed complained of being treated like a drudge; if, however, calculations were asked for as well, Flamsteed would respond that such work required all kinds of tedious analysis for which he had little time ... "Over the period 1694-5 Newton received another 150 observations. They were, however, none too reliable, having been made with the help of a stellar catalogue constructed with the help of a sextant alone. By this time Flamsteed was beginning to resent Newton's somewhat imperial tone. 'But I did not think myself obliged', he complained, 'to employ my pains to serve a person that was so inconsiderate as to presume he had a right to that which was only a courtesy (Baily, p. 63). Consequently, he returned to his own work, leaving Newton to work through the observations he had already received. "The two continued to see each other and to discuss Flamsteed's lunar observations until January 1699. This part of the correspondence ends with Flamsteed lecturing Newton on pride and humility. His own humility, he proudly told Newton, allowed him to 'excuse small faults in all mankind', and to 'bear great injurys without resentment'. "The second stage of the dispute began on 11 April 1704 with a visit by Newton to Greenwich. Newton had yet to complete his lunar theory and could scarcely have looked forward to the prospect of another prolonged quarrel with Flamsteed. He seems to have decided to attempt to resolve the problem in a more direct manner. Using his position as President of the Royal Society, and his connections at Court, he sought to pressurise Flamsteed into publishing his long-awaited catalogue, thus putting all his observations into the public domain. The approach was rejected. Newton, Flamsteed noted, was too obviously someone who 'would be my friend no further than to serve his own ends ... spiteful, and swayed by those that were worse than himself' (Baily, p. 66). "Newton went over Flamsteed's head and gained the backing of Prince George, husband to Queen Anne, for the project. Scientists in the eighteenth century did not reject the offer of royal patronage. Consequently, Flamsteed in November drew up an estimate of his three-volume catalogue. The work would be 1,450 pages long and the printing of the first volume could begin immediately. Unwilling to leave the task to Flamsteed, Newton arranged instead for a Committee of Referees to examine Flamsteed's papers and to oversee publication. The members of the Committee were either, like Francis Aston and David Gregory, Newton's men or, like Sir Christopher Wren, too old and busy to concern themselves with such a task. Newton also extracted from Prince George the sum of £863 to finance the project. It soon became clear that Newton and Flamsteed had different visions of the planned work. Flamsteed had hoped to present his work within a detailed historical context by including in the third volume, along with his own stellar catalogue, all important earlier catalogues from Ptolemy to Hevelius. He also wished to add a celestial atlas consisting of sixty large star-charts. Newton's aim was much more restricted and consisted of no more than completing and publishing Flamsteed's observations. "Flamsteed could do little more than delay the project. In this he was quite successful as by 1708, when Prince George died, the first volume was still incomplete. With the death of Prince George the Referees no longer had control over Flamsteed's text. Newton's response was to have himself, as President of the Royal Society, appointed in 1710 a 'constant Visitor' to the Greenwich Observatory, with access to all observations and the right to direct the work of the Astronomer Royal. Shortly afterwards Flamsteed heard that the Queen had commanded him to hand over all outstanding material and so allow the work to be finally completed. "It finally appeared in 1712, edited by Halley, as Historiae coelestis (History of the Heavens). It was not to Flamsteed's liking, seeming to him to be no more than a parody of the work he had once dreamed of publishing. Equally distressing to him was the fact that it had been produced by Halley, a man he despised as an atheist, a libertine and a plagiarist (Baily, p. xxxi)" (Gjertsen, pp. 209-212). Four hundred copies of Halley's edition were printed. In the period 1699-1701, Flamsteed had begun to draw up pages listing stars in the zodiacal constellations, working his way through Orion and Monoceros to Lyra and Cygnus. After a hiatus of several years, Flamsteed began in August 1708 till January 1709 to work up some of the remaining constellations such as Ursa Minor and Draco. "Generally [Halley] preserved Flamsteed's order of the stars and constellations, so that his final product looked much like the lists Flamsteed had originally submitted. Halley numbered the stars in each constellation, and arranged them in groups of five instead of the triplets used by Flamsteed ... However, the most conspicuous systematic alterations concerned the verbal descriptions of the places of the stars within the mythological constellation figures. Foe example, Halley always changed Flamsteed's use of dexter or sinister to less ambiguous words such as sequens, praecedens, superior or Boreus. The 1725 edition reverted to Flamsteed's original description, but, in retrospect, Halley's terminology seems generally preferable. Halley's other major task was the completion of the six northern constellations, among them Ursa Major, Ursa Minor, Cepheus, Draco and Cassiopeia ... "Ironically, one of the features of the 'corrupted' 1712 edition that Flamsteed rejected were the serial numbers for the stars in each constellation, a convenience added by Halley, and in its revised form regularly employed by astronomers today. Flamsteed omitted such numbers from the 'authorised' 1725 edition and his atlas ... Thus, the familiar 'Flamsteed numbers', which eponymises the First Astronomer Royal for hundreds of amateur astronomers who might never otherwise have heard of him, were actually an invention spurned by the ever-proper Revd. John Flamsteed" (Gingerich, pp. 195-7). With the accession of George I in 1714 Flamsteed found that at last he had friends at Court. "On his petition, Flamsteed was accordingly awarded a warrant ordering that of the 340 copies of the 1712 Historia coelestis still in the hands of [the printer] Awnsham Churchill, 300 should be handed over to him 'as a present from his Majty'. After a long delay, the copies were delivered. Flamsteed immediately took them to Greenwich. There he separated out the section printed when he had still been able to correct the press, setting aside 'Halley's corrupted edition of my catalogue, and [his] abridgement of my observations, no less spoiled by him.' He kept the former to be inserted into the edition he himself still hoped to complete. A few copies of the latter he annotated and sent to friends, as cautionary 'Evidence of ye malice of Godlesse persons'. But in spring 1716 Flamsteed built a pyre on Greenwich Hill, and burned the sheets containing the catalogue and abridged observations. As he himself put it, they made a good 'sacrifice to TRUTH.' He would do the same to 'all the rest of my editor's pains of the like nature,' he declared, 'if the Author of Truth should hereafter put them into my power.' "If 340 copies remained, some 60 had been distributed. Along with the remaining books, the government also demanded a full account of the dispersal of these copies. The account made clear that, as had always been intended, the first copies of the Historia coelestis were not published in a commercial sense. Instead they had been envisaged as royal 'presents', to be given to a selective list of recipients ... More than fifty of the copies no longer in Churchill's warehouse had been dispersed. Ten had gone to courtiers, thirty to the Treasury (richly bound for use as diplomatic gifts), and ten more to the observatory and Royal Academy in Paris. Newton and Halley had got one each, Flamsteed two" (Johns, pp. 607-9). For the rest of his life Flamsteed laboured on, and the work was completed, after his death, by his former assistants resulting in a publication containing a revised catalogue, more observations and reprints of earlier star catalogues to compare with Flamsteed's own. This was the Historia coelestis Britannica published in 1725, much as Flamsteed had wanted it, except for the omission of the details of his quarrels with Newton and Halley, which he had wanted to include. The atlas, which he originally intended to publish with the catalogue, was issued separately in 1729. Flamsteed only burnt Halley's preface and the catalogue from the 1712 work, re-using the sextant observations, the proofs of which he had corrected before the final rift with the Royal Society. This means that no more than the 100 copies of the 1712 work already issued can have remained, and no more than 300 copies of the 1725 work issued. Flamsteed continued to attempt to round up copies of the 1712 work and left instructions for his widow to do the same. She even wrote to the Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University in 1726 politely asking him to have the 1712 work removed from the Bodleian Library (he declined). Large folio (390 x 267 mm), pp. [vi], vi, 60; [1], 2-360, [2], 362, [1], 363-388, [1]; [2], 120, [2, errata], with four folding plates engraved by John Senex.

A few 18th century ink notes in margins of catalogue of fixed stars at beginning, including the following in the lower margin of the first leaf of text: 'NB The variations in R[ight] A[scension] and D[istance] to P[ole] are for the time in which the stars are changing their procession by one degree that is to say in 72 years. Hence as from the year 1690 to the year 1786 there are 96 years then 96 - 72 = 24 & 72 ÷ 24 = 3 [therefore] for the year 1786 add the variation and 1/3 of it'.

      [s.n.], [?London] 1712 - First edition. 14, [1, ad], [1] pp., half-title with "Pence" correctly spelled. 8vo. "Swift's mock Letter of Thanks was prompted by the Preface attached by the Bishop of St Asaph (William Fleetwood, 1656-1723) to his publication in 1712 of Four Sermons delivered between 1692 and 1702. This Preface contained a direct attack on Harley's administration. The Tories carried a motion in the House of Commons condemning it, and it was publicly burned on 12 May 1712" (Rothschild). "A Letter" is generally attributed to Swift, though that attribution is strongly challenged by David Wolley in "The Canon of Swift's Pamphleteering, 1710-1714" (Swift Studies, vol. 3, 1988, pp. 105-6). The advertisement for "The Speech of John Ketch Esq; at the Burning of a late Scandalous and Malicious Preface" refers to a printing of a speech by the pseudonymous John Ketch on the burning of Fleetwood's Four Sermons; the printer of both works is unknown.

V., Besitzsign. u. Siegel a. fl. Schmutztitel, Gbrsp., etw. fingerfleckig, tlw. stockfleckig. - Schmucker, (1712 - 1786), erhielt seine medizinische Bildung in dem Collegium medico-chirurgicum und dem Charité-Krankenhause zu Berlin und wurde dann auf Kosten König Friedrich Wilhelm I. als Pensionär-Chirurgus auf zwei Jahre nach Paris gesendet, wo er sich unter Le Dran (16851770) fortbildete. Mit Bilguer und Theben leitete er später im siebenjährigen Kriege den preußischen Sanitätsdienst und betheiligte sich an fast allen Schlachten dieses Feldzugs. Die von ihm und andern Feldärzten gewonnenen Kriegserfahrungen legte er in seinem Werke "Chirurgische Wahrnehmungen" (Berlin u. Stettin 1774, 1789 holländ. Leyden 1775) nieder. Der 1. Theil dieses Werkes enthält namentlich bei der Belagerung von Schweidnitz (1762) gemachte Beobachtungen über die Beschädigungen des Kopfes und über die Trepanation, welcher er mit Bilguer und Theden das Wort redet. Der 2. Theil handelt von den Verwundungen und Krankheiten der Brust, des Bauches und der Gliedmaßen. Sein zweites Hauptwerk führt den Titel "Vermischte chirurgische Schriften" (Berlin. 3 Bde., 1776 bis 1782 2. Aufl. für 1. u. 2. Bd. 1785 u. 1786) und enthält seltene Beobachtungen preußischer Militärärzte und Schmucker's Abhandlung über Abnehmung der Glieder, in welcher er eine vermittelnde Stellung zwischen Bilguer und den übereifrigen Operateuren einnimmt. Erinnern heute noch die seinen Namen tragenden, höhere Kältegrade erzeugenden Umschläge an sein verdienstvolles wundärztliches Wirken, so wird ihn namentlich die deutsche Feldchirurgie immer unter den besten ihrer Vertreter nennen.

        A Proposal For Correcting, Improving and Ascertaining The English Tongue; In A Letter To The Most Honourable Robert Lord Of Oxford and Mortimer, Lord High Treasurer Of Great Britain

      London: Benj. Tooke, 1712. First edition. Hardcover. Modern full brown leather, front cover lettered in gilt. Near fine. 48 pages [*4,B-F4]. Swift wanted the language to be controlled by a select group of grammarians - and thus to achieve fixity. This would have the important consequence that older books in the language would always remain intelligible. "I would have our language, after it is duly correct, always to last; I do not mean that it should never be enlarged: Provided that no Word which a Society shall give a sanction to, be afterwards antiquated and exploded, they may have liberty to receive whatever new ones they shall find occasion for: Because then the old Books will be always valuable, according to their intrinsick Worth, and not thrown aside on account of unintelligible Words and Phrases.'' This was one of very few publications to which Swift attached his name. With half title, modest toning, F4 with slight .75 cm. margin dampstain, and loss of numeral 4 of page number 48, but no text loss. Endpapers renewed.

        Delfland - Cruquius, 1712.

      DE KAART VAN DELFLAND, MEESTERWERK VAN DE GEBR. CRUQUIUS"'T HOOGE HEEMRAEDSCHAP VAN DELFLANT? Kopergravure, verkleinde overzichtskaart uit de als atlas gebonden 25-bladige kaart van ??t Hoogheemraedschap van Delflant: met alle de Steden? Gemeten en in Kaerte gebracht Door (de Geadmitteerde Landmeters) Nicol. en Jac. Kruikius (Cruquius)?. De kaart werd uitgegeven in 1712. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd en met goud gehoogd. Afm. ca. 52 x 58,5 cm.De kaart van Cruquius, waarvan de opdracht op 12 september 1702 werd verstrekt door het Hoogheemraadschap van Delfland, verscheen pas in 1712 in druk. De opname van het kaartboek heeft plaatsgevonden tot in het jaar 1707. In die tijd liepen Nicolaus Cruquius en zijn broer Jakob met kettingen door de polders van het Hoogheemraadschap van Delfland om de percelen land, de plaats van de gebouwen en die van wegen en vaarwegen in te meten.Het resultaat mag tot een van de hoogtepunten van de historische cartografie worden gerekend. Hij wist met deze hulpmiddelen een verbluffend nauwkeurige set landkaarten te vervaardigen die tegenwoordig kunnen worden gescand en met enig pas en meetwerk worden gegeorefereerd. Door de 18de-eeuwse kaart onder een moderne topografische kaart schaal 1:10.000 te leggen, wordt duidelijk hoe precies hij zijn waarnemingen heeft vastgelegd. Tot in de details geeft hij de plattegrond van gebouwen weer, krommingen in sloten, wegen en paden, ook die paden die slechts door mondelinge overlevering nog bij de buurtbewoners bekend zijn. Ook zijn beschrijvingen zijn uiterst doordacht. Door typografische trucjes toe te passen wist hij de naamgevingen zo over het kaartblad te verdelen dat de grenzen van bepaalde stukken land die bijeen behoorden, ook precies pasten tussen de eerste en de laatste letter van de naam die hij eraan gaf.Het vervaardigen van de grote kaart van Delfland kostte toen 20.000 gulden (!!).Het Hoogheemraadschap van Delfland was een overkoepelend waterschap, waarin een groot aantal kleinere waterschappen heeft gelegen. Deze waterschappen waren zelfstandig maar vielen ?f onder Rijnland, ?f waren inliggende waterschappen en sterk afhankelijk van Delfland.Prijs: ?1.950,-.

        A Letter of Thanks from my Lord W[harto]n to the Lord Bp of S. Asaph, in the Name of the Kit-Cat-Club

      [?London]: [s.n.], 1712. First edition. 14, [1, ad], [1] pp., half-title with "Pence" correctly spelled. 8vo. Nineteenth-century red pebbled morocco and marbled boards, by Boston Bookbinding. Covers rubbed and stained, half-title browned, some spotting and title and other leaves. First edition. 14, [1, ad], [1] pp., half-title with "Pence" correctly spelled. 8vo. "Swift's mock Letter of Thanks was prompted by the Preface attached by the Bishop of St Asaph (William Fleetwood, 1656-1723) to his publication in 1712 of Four Sermons delivered between 1692 and 1702. This Preface contained a direct attack on Harley's administration. The Tories carried a motion in the House of Commons condemning it, and it was publicly burned on 12 May 1712" (Rothschild). "A Letter" is generally attributed to Swift, though that attribution is strongly challenged by David Wolley in "The Canon of Swift's Pamphleteering, 1710-1714" (Swift Studies, vol. 3, 1988, pp. 105-6). The advertisement for "The Speech of John Ketch Esq; at the Burning of a late Scandalous and Malicious Preface" refers to a printing of a speech by the pseudonymous John Ketch on the burning of Fleetwood's Four Sermons; the printer of both works is unknown.

Esemplare ben conservato Thomas Sanchez (1550-1610), gesuita spagnolo, fu giureconsulto di enorme fama; quest'opera fu messa all'indice nel 1627 soprattutto a causa della disputatio De debito coniugali (cfr. tom. III, p. 154 e ss.). La reazione ecclesiastica verteva sul ruolo dell'autorità pontificia in relazione alla validità del matrimonio in presenza o assenza di prole. La fortuna di quest'opera si deve attribuire in definitiva non solo alla pura dottrina giuridica, bensì anche alle numerose pagine dedicate, direttamente o indirettamente, alla sfera intima nell'ambito matrimoniale.

Marginal note in the same hand on p. 125. (4 ll.), 174 pp., (5 ll. index). *** FIRST EDITION [?] of Part I of a popular and quite rare work on civil and criminal court cases. Complete within itself, it includes discussions on the qualities necessary for judges, prosecutors, lawyers, arbiters, and scribes. A lengthy section (about a third of the book) is on ecclesiastical courts. The index includes entries for assassins, exiles, men who slash with knives, slaves, murderers, and thieves. According to the title page, this edition includes a revised version of the "Nova Reformaçam da Justiça" with an index that had not previously been printed.Eventually Cabral published 5 parts, which first appeared together in Coimbra, 1730. Antonio Simões Ferreira published 2 additional parts; the 7 parts were published together in Coimbra, 1757, Lisbon, 1842, and even as late as Lisbon, 1862.The rarity of this work doubtless explains the confusion over its parts and dates. Porbase cryptically lists an edition of the first part of Lisbon, Off. Carlos Esteves Mariz, 1711, without collation and with only a short title, with a single location at the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal. The licenses of the present copy are from 15 January 1711 to 11 May 1712. According to Innocêncio, Parts I-V appeared in Lisbon, 1712 and 1727. Barbosa gives the dates for the separate parts as follows: Part I, Lisbon, 1712; Parts II-III, Lisbon, 1715; Part IV, Lisbon, 1721; Part V, Lisbon 1727; he also notes that all 5 parts were printed in Coimbra, 1730. Innocêncio states that Parts VI-VII, by Antonio Simões Ferreira, were printed in Coimbra, 1737 and 1750, and that the seven parts appeared together in Coimbra, 1757, and again in Lisbon, 1842.Antonio Valguerve Cabral earned his degree in civil law from the Coimbra University and practiced in Lisbon. Innocêncio, following Barbosa Machado, describes him as a native of Lisbon, but Innocêncio adds that he was juiz commissario in the bishopric of Miranda and ouvidor of the captaincy of Itamarca (Brazil). He abandoned magistracy as a career and devoted himself to the private practice of law.*** Innocêncio I, 282; VIII, 315. Barbosa Machado I, 409. Not located in Porbase, which cites other editions.

        Due disegni di paesaggi veneti di Francesco Lazzaro Guardi del '700

      Due disegni di paesaggi veneti di Francesco Lazzaro Guardi '700. (34 x 22,5 - 36 x 22,5) con lievi velature. Molto belle ed originali. Si consiglia a chi è interessato di venire a Bologna presso il nostro negozio previo appuntamento perchè i disegni si trovano altrove. Francesco Lazzaro Guardi (Venezia, 5 ottobre 1712 - Venezia, 1º gennaio 1793) è stato un pittore italiano vissuto nella Repubblica di Venezia. L'artista, al contrario del Canaletto, non mira, nelle sue pitture, a risultati di nitida percezione, ma propone un'interpretazione del dato reale soggettiva ed evocativa, realizzando immagini di città evanescenti e irreali; raggiungendo a volte una sensibilità definibile pre-romantica, grazie allo sfaldamento delle forme e a malinconiche penombre...

NOTE: While Kaempfer states "Chinese characters" in the text, actually what he meant to say was Japanese Kanji characters "borrowed" from the Chinese. ** THE AUTHOR: Engelbert Kaempfer [1740-1812], was a German doctor, and is best known as the director of the Deshima factory in Nagasaki, Japan from 1779-1780 & 1781-1784. Also his classic work: THE HISTORY OF JAPAN, 1827 & 1828 was his most stunning contribution to information on Japan at the time, their flora, especially the tea camellia, acupuncture, hand paper-making, and medical studies relating to acupuncture and the use of moxibustion as a cauterizing & therapeutal agent. *** In 1683 he joined the Swedish embassy to visit the Shah of Persia. The embassy traveled from Moscow, via Kazan, Astrakhan, across the Caspian Sea to Isfahan, the capital of Persia. Kaempfer ventured out along the way, exploring other areas by the Baku on the Caspian Sea. He was an avid student and mastered the Persian language, which enabled him to then focus on that country's flora, fauna and geography. The results of these studies are found in this text, with especial focus on the flora. . Upon return to Sweden, Kaempfer joined the Dutch East India Company, where he was appointed chief surgeon in the Persian Gulf. He explored Arabia, the west coast of India and finally ended up in Batavia, where he focused on Javanese natural history. While there, he met several people who had been stationed in Deshima, Japan, and some Japanese. At his request, he was appointed chief surgeon to Deshima where he studied all aspects of the Japanese. He also taught Dutch and Eu
