         The Iliad.

      London: Printed by G. James, for Bernard Lintott,, 1712. With Notes. To which are prefix'd, A large Preface, and the Life of Homer. Done from the French; To which will be made some farther Notes, that shall be added at the End of the Whole; by Mr Johnson, late of Eton, now of Brentford. 5 volumes, duodecimo (162 x 100 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, raised bands to spines, gilt numbering to spines, blind-stamped panelling to covers with floral designs, board edges gilt, edges speckled in red. 24 out of 26 plates stated on title pages present. Ownership inscription to title pages of vols. 1-3, ownership initials to front free endpaper of vol. 1. Spines creased, abrasions, scuff marks and a bit of loss to covers, light wear to extremities, loss to bottom of spines of vol. 1 and 4, white spotting to front cover and dark mark to rear cover of vol. 2. A very good set. First edition in English, translated by Jonathan Ozell, of Anne Dacier's French translation of the Iliad, published the previous year. This work predates Pope's translation of 1715 and Pope "borrowed from this heavily when he began to publish his own famous Iliad translation three years later" (ODNB). It contains 24 plates after those of Dacier's edition by Antoine Coypel. This set unfortunately lacks the plates for books XIX and XX.

         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

      [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.

         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.

      XXII + 8 n.n. + 336 + Zwischentitel + XIV + 10 n.n. + 392 S. OLd. der Zeit. Zwei Teile in einem Band. Mit gestochenen Vignetten. ADB XXXII, 63. - Ebd. berieben, Siegelresten a. 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.

         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,-.

      Venetiis, typographia Stephani Montii 1712 - Tre parti in due volumi di cm. 32, pp. (48) 507 (1); (48) 360; 372. Primo frontespizio in rosso e nero, vignette ai frontespizi, alcune graziose testatine xil. Ottima legatura coeva in piena perg. rigida; dorso a 5 nervi con titoli ms. Sporadiche macchiette. 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.

      Lisbon, Na Officina de Joseph Lopes Ferreyra, 1712. - Folio (30.5 x 21 cm.), contemporary speckled sheep (some rubbing and stains, small defect at top of spine label, a few pinpoint wormholes to spine and two slightly larger worm traces to rear cover near joint), spine gilt with raised bands in five compartments, black leather lettering piece in second compartment from head. Title page in red and black. Large woodcut ornament on title page. Woodcut and typographical headpieces. Woodcut tailpieces Large woodcut initials. Main text in two columns. Internally fine, overall in very good condition. Later (early nineteenth-century?) ownership signature in blank portion of title page ("Anº Guard. de Cast."?). 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
