        Provin. Genevensis

      Milano 1712 - Carta geografica tratta dalla "Chorographica Descriptio Provinciarum et Conventum.", atlante dell'ordine dei frati cappucini. L'atlante delle province cappuccine era stato iniziato in forma manoscritta dal ministro generale dell'ordine, padre Silvestro da Panicale nel 1632 e doveva servire da sussidio geografico per le visite generali. Alla sua morte il successore Padre Giovanni di Montecaliero, al quale spesso viene erroneamente attribuita la paternità delle carte, incaricò padre Massimino da Guechen di proseguire l'opera. Gli incisori delle lastre furono appunto Massimino da Guechen, Bernardino Burdigalensis e Ludovico Monteregali. La prima edizione fu stampata a Roma nel 1643, la seconda a Torino nel 1649 e quindi nel 1654 ed infine un'altra uscì nel 1712. Per convenzione attribuiamo le mappe al Montecalerio. L'opera mostrava visivamente la diffusione dell'ordine, infatti le diverse carte dell'atlante, che rappresentano nazioni e province, offrono per ognuna di esse la statistica completa dei conventi. Questa edizione definitiva del 1712 presenta le carte totalmente differenti, aggiornate ed arricchite. Stampata a Milano da Giovanni Battista Cassini. Incisione in rame, lievissima gora d'acqua, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Rara. Dimensioni 335 230mm [Attributes: First Edition]

[xii], xxxiv, 946, [94] pp. Copperplate allegorical frontispiece, copperplate portrait of Grotius. Octavo (7-1/2" x 4-1/2"). Contemporary calf, rebacked, blind rules to boards, blind fillets along joints, raised bands and lettering piece to spine, gilt tooling to board edges. Light rubbing to boards, corners bumped and lightly worn, hinges mended.

An attractive copy. $750. * Later Gronov edition. With side-notes and index. Of all his numerous works De Jure Belli ac Pacis will always be considered Grotius' magnum opus, the work upon which his reputation most solidly rests. "The distinction between religion and law or morality is not clearly made, but Grotius' principle of an immutable law, which God can no more alter than a mathematical axiom, was the first expression of the droit naturel, the natural law which exercised the great political theorists of the eighteenth century, and is the foundation of modern international law" (Carter and Muir). The first Gronov edition, one of the most important editions of Grotius, was published in 1663. This copy includes Mare Liberum, or Freedom of the Seas (1609), Grotius's influential treatise on maritime law and the right of free navigation. Carter and Muir, Printing and the Mind of Man 125.

        Hillegersberg, Berkel-Rodenrijs, Ackerdijkse Plassen - Cruiquius.

      Hillegersberg, Berkel-Rodenrijs, Ackerdijkse PlassenVierentwintichste Stuk en Vyfentwintichste Stuk uit de kaart van Delfland, met daarop de Ackerdijkse plassen, Hillegersberg en Berkel-Rodenrijs. Afmetingen: elk ca. 51 x 58 cm.Deze kaarten vormden onderdeel van de als atlas gebonden kaart 't Hoogheemraedschap van Delflant: met alle de Steden ... etc. daer in Gelegen, op Voetmaet / volgens Ordre van de Wel Eedele Heeren Dijkgraef en Hooge Heemraeden van Delflant, Gemeten en in Kaerte gebracht Door (de Geadmitteerde Landmeters) Nicol. en Jac. Kruikius (Cruquius). De kaart werd uitgegeven in 1712.Het vervaardigen van de kaart duurde vele jaren en kostte toen 20.000 gulden (!!). De topografie is perfect weergegeven, ook de door het slagturven in die tijd ontstane legakkers en veenplassen (die naderhand veelal weer werden drooggelegd).Deze kopergravures van Hillegersberg en Berkel-Rodenrijs zijn in de tijd prachtig met de hand gekleurd en met goud gehoogd. De gebonden fraai gekleurde exemplaren van de kaart van Delfland waren bedoeld als relatiegeschenken. Volgens Fockema Andrea & Koeman in Old maps and their makers (1975) is dit ?the most beautiful map of Delfland, the Kruikius map is stunning?'.Nicolaes Samuel Kruik (1678-1754), alias Cruquius, werd bekend als waterbouwkundige en cartograaf. Hij was landmeter en bracht het tot kandidaat in de medicijnen. Behalve het vervaardigen van de beroemde kaart van Delfland was hij in 1733 belast met het toezicht op de uitwateringswerken van Rijnland. Tevens had hij een belangrijk aandeel in de rivierverbetering van Rijnland. Met anderen deed hij voorstellen voor de droogmaking van de Haarlemmermeer en de drooggraving van Hoek van Holland. Na de overstromingen van de Merwede in 1726 bracht hij uitvoerig rapport uit met voorstellen tot verbetering van de rivier. Drie jaar later vervaardigd Cruquius een kaart van de Merwede die geldt als eerste rivierkaart met dieptelijnen ter wereld. Ook verwierf Cruquius bekendheid met zijn temperatuurmetingen, die bij historisch weeronderzoek nog steeds worden gebruikt.Literatuur: Donkersloot-de Vrij p. 159 nr. 806.Prijs: ?2.950,- (2 stuks, incl. lijst).

      1712 - in German with transcription and translation, addressed to Oberaufseher (Chief Inspector) von Below, enclosing a petition [not present] from Christian Ludwig von EBERSTEIN ZU NEUHAUS (1650-1717, of Neuhaus in Saxony), for "restitution of what has been paid on account of the Forest of Leinungen" (the 'Leinungischer Forst' near Mansfeld, on the Saxon side of the Harz Mountains), "and deposited at the Sequestrator's Revenue Department and the Office of Mines", agreeable to von Below's report of 27th May 1711 about "the Rescript you received from Dresden the 13th February 1708", Georg Ludwig adds that "His Royal and Electoral Majesty of Saxony", (Augustus the Strong, 1670-1733, founder of the Meissen factory and King of Poland), also wrote on 20th March 1711, mentioning the same Rescript, asking him to ensure that "the Receiver of Sequestrations, or whoever else took possession of the money for the Mint", return the money "without further delay", and desiring von Below to recover it and deliver it to von Eberstein, stamped at the head 'G L C' below the Electoral bonnet, 3 sides folio, Hanover, 26th May central fold expertly restored, side 1 somewhat faded but can all be made out, fine strong signature on side 3 The petitioner, Christian Ludwig von Eberstein had been a Brigade-Major in the Elector of Saxony's army, and then Chief Inspector and Chief Officer of Mines for Anhalt-Bernburg at Harzgerode.

        A Discovery of Subterranean Treasure, viz. Of all manner of Mines & Minerals, from the Gold to the Coal, with plain Directions and Rules for the finding of them in all Kingdoms and Countries. Also the Art of Melting, Refining, and Assaying them made plain and easie to every Ordinary Capacity, so that they may with small Charge try the value of such Oars as shall be found either by Rule or Accident. To which is added, A real Experiment, to try whether a Piece of Gold be True or Counterfeit, without defacing or altering the form thereof, with more Certainty that any Goldsmith or Refiner could formerly do

      Booksellers of London and Westminster, London 1712 - Important treatise on mineralogy considered the first useful text in English on metallurgical matters, it is essentially a technical guide to mining and metallurgy which in part speculates about America's potential as a source of rare ores. First published in 1639 in 4to format; in 1679 it appeared in this pamphlet format. The tract contains factual information illustrated by the author's own experiments and includes the following topics: the generation of mountains and metals; the signs of mines of minerals; the smelting and refining of Lead, Tinn, Iron, Copper, Silver and Gold; How true and perfect Gold may be made by Art; How to find Pit-coal; and how to colour with plant dyes. Plattes refers to the possibility of productive mining in the colonies, referring to New-England, Virginia, Bermudas, & c.: "these Mines, if they prove rich, would yield more Gain in one year than their Tobacco, and such Trifles, would yield in their whole Lives." (p5). Plattes was an extremely poor author who wanted to reprint this pamphlet in 'The Treasure House of Nature Unlocked' in 1644, but there is no record of this occurring. The author died of starvation in the 1650s. Pamphlet, 8vo, 22pp. Later single stitch bound with the original holes visible. Light general toning of paper with early ink mark in top corner.

Contemporary entries in ink on the pastedown and endpaper. Demosthenes (Demosthénes 384?322 BC) was a Greek statesman and orator of ancient Athens. His orations constitute a significant expression of contemporary Athenian intellectual prowess and provide an insight into the politics and culture of ancient Greece during the 4th century BC. Demosthenes learned rhetoric by studying the speeches of previous great orators. He delivered his first judicial speeches at the age of 20, in which he argued effectively to gain from his guardians what was left of his inheritance. For a time, Demosthenes made his living as a professional speech-writer (logographer) and a lawyer, writing speeches for use in private legal suits.nnDemosthenes grew interested in politics during his time as a logographer, and in 354 BC he gave his first public political speeches. He went on to devote his most productive years to opposing Macedon's expansion. He idealized his city and strove throughout his life to restore Athens' supremacy and motivate his compatriots against Philip II of Macedon. He sought to preserve his city's freedom and to establish an alliance against Macedon, in an unsuccessful attempt to impede Philip's plans to expand his influence southward by conquering all the Greek states.nnAfter Philip's death, Demosthenes played a leading part in his city's uprising against the new king of Macedonia, Alexander the Great. However, his efforts failed and the revolt was met with a harsh Macedonian reaction. To prevent a similar revolt against his own rule, Alexander's successor in this region, Antipater, sent his men to track Demosthenes down. Demosthenes took his own life, in order to avoid being arrested by Archias, Antipater's confidant.nnThe Alexandrian Canon compiled by Aristophanes of Byzantium and Aristarchus of Samothrace recognised Demosthenes as one of the ten greatest Attic orators and logographers. Longinus likened Demosthenes to a blazing thunderbolt, and argued that he "perfected to the utmost the tone of lofty speech, living passions, copiousness, readiness, speed". Quintilian extolled him as lex orandi ("the standard of oratory"), and Cicero said about him that inter omnis unus excellat ("he stands alone among all the orators"), and he also acclaimed him as "the perfect orator" who lacked nothing.

Ovid's Art of Love (Ars Amatoria), a manual on seduction and intrigue provides (in its first and second books) instruction to men in meeting and seducing women and in preventing others from stealing them. With the poet's Remedy of Love (Remedia Amoris), it completes his corpus of elegiac, erotic poetry, but it is also, in part, a satire on didactic poetry, offering such advise as Don't Forget Her Birthday!, Let Her Miss You?But Not For Long, and Don't Ask About Her Age. The third book offers similar advice to women: Make-Up, But In Private, Beware of False Lovers, and Try Young and Older Lovers. Sexual matters are dealt with at the end of each book, with, for example, the second book addressing the pleasures of simultaneous orgasm and the third various sexual positions, with women exhorted to choose the most suitable after taking into account the proportions of their own bodies.

        Miscellaneous Poems and Translations [The Rape of the Lock]

      1st Edition London: Printed for Bernard Lintott, 1712. FIRST EDITION, containing the FIRST APPEARANCE of Pope's The Rape of the Lock. "The earliest version of Pope's mock heroic poem The Rape of the Lock, composed in a fortnight during summer 1711, had for nine months been anonymously printed in Bernard Lintot's Miscellany. The masterpiece of Pope's earlier period, The Rape of the Lock (1712, 1714) had its origin in a quarrel between two Catholic families, apparently over the provocative cutting off of a lock of hair by Lord Petre from the head of Arabella Fermor..."The poem... is far from being a mere social satire in which a trivial quarrel is mocked by being presented in epic terms. Indeed, by the time the poem has been thoughtfully read it is not really clear that the quarrel is trivial. The 'Heroi-Comical' in Pope's hands is a volatile mixture: some of its comedy rebounds on the epic conventions that are primarily deployed to mock the foolish and vain. In the shining lock of hair Pope contemplates beauty, reputation, conquest in love and war, anger, humour, and resignation. The political facets of the poem, parts only of the total multi-faceted effect, have recently come more into the light, so that the work has its own angle on historical change. Not only does the poem have many targets, all seen through the prism of Belinda and her lock, but it also has many tones, those of subtle comedy, outright farce, and lofty sadness" (DNB).Pope sold this 2-canto version to Lintott for 7 pounds in March 1712; in 1714 an expanded 5-canto version was issued.London: Printed for Bernard Lintott, 1712. Octavo, contemporary paneled calf rebacked. With engraved frontispiece and half-title. Some light marginal worming, light occasional dampstaining (not affecting Pope's verses). A handsome copy. Very Good.
