        I GIOCHI NUMERICI FATTI ARCANI.

      E. O. First Edition. Un volume (12x19 cm) di VIII - 313 - (1) pagine. 16 tavole incise fuori testo. Schemi nel testo. Le ultime pp. 309 - 13 hanno un difetto di numerazione e di impaginazione, ma senza mancanze (questo ?difetto? è anzi una delle caratteristiche della E.O. - Qualche bibliografo considera anche nella segnatura le ultime 3 carte bianche, che qui non ci sono). Qualche gora chiara. Cartonato d'attesa coevo. ?Giuseppe Antonio Alberti nacque a Bologna il 29 genn. 1712. Avviato agli studi matematici, si dedicò in modo particolare alla geometria pratica e fu iscritto tra i pubblici periti di agrimensura, architettura e idrostatica di Bologna. Dal 1756 al 1758 fu perito agronomo condotto di Bagnacavallo (Ravenna); poi passò a Perugia, dove morì il 31 ag. 1768. In Emilia, in Umbria, e specialmente a Faenza e a Bagnacavallo, partecipò alla costruzione di opere idrauliche; fece livellazioni, rilievi topografici e catastali. La sua fama, però, è soprattutto affidata ai suoi scritti di matematica e d'ingegneria. Nel 1747 pubblicò un libretto di qualche interesse sui giochi numerici e di prestigio, che riscosse molto successo, come attestano le nove ristampe apparse sino al 1815.? (DBI). Ricciardi 1 - 15 - 297.

        John Bull Still in his Senses: being the third part of Law is a Bottomless Pit. Printed for a manuscript found in the cabinet of the famous Sir Humphry Polesworth: and publish'd (as well as the two former parts) by the author of the New Atalantis

      London: printed for John Morphew, near Stationer's-Hall, 1712. Second edition. 47, [1, ads] pp. 1 vols. Uncut in modern boards. Dated by the first purchaser at the foot of p. [3] "Aprl. 16, 1712", the date of publication (see Bower & Erickson). This is the third of Arbuthnot's series, in Bower & Erickson's permutation (b), i.e., with p. 25 in the corrected state and p. 27 uncorrected. Obviously if this copy was bought on the day the pamphlet was published, there is unlikely to be any important difference between the sequence in which the various states were issued. The reference to Mary Manley's New Atlantis was plainly intended to disguise Arbuthnot's authorship.

        Historische Untersuchung vom Ursprung und Fortgang Des Inquisitions Processes Wieder die Hexen, Worinnen deutlich erwiesen wird, daß der Teuffel, welcher nach der gemeinen Meynung pacta mit denen Hexen macht, mit denenselben buhlet, und sie auff den Blockers-Berg fuhret, nicht uber anderthalb hundert Jahr alt sey; Als eine Beylage zu dem Tractat von der Zauberey und Hexen-Processe Denen Liebhabern mitgetheilet

      Halle im Magdeburgischen: Zu finden in der Rengerischen Buchhandlung, Halle im Magdeburgischen, 1712. FIRST EDITION. 4to. Unbound pamphlet: [2], 52, [4] pp. Horizontal worm hole (1/4 to 1/2 inch) in outer margins of a number of leaves with loss, otherwise in very good condition. Preserved in a black cloth protective case (Cloverleaf Studio) FIRST EDITION of this important treatise on the legal problems of the Inquisition against Witches. The author, German jurist and philosopher Christian Thomasius (1655-1728), was one of the most respected and influential university teachers of his day, and was instrumental in popularizing the Enlightenment in Germany. * Thomasius' "Historical Investigation into the Origins and Continuation of the inquisitorial Trials against Witches," published here for the first time, provides a detailed and highly critical consideration of the subject. His arguments are supported by numerous texts, including Scripture, Roman Law, Canon Law, and even the 'Malleus Maleficarum' itself. * Along with Leipniz, "Thomasius was in part a polyhistorian: he was jurist, philosopher, theologian, literary critic and man of letters, and above all the first economist produced by Germany. He remained a university man, whereas Leipniz forsook the universities and sought spiritual refuge with the academies which he founded. ... He was one of the first typical 'progressives' to advocate reforms and fight prejudices. Wherever it was necessary to air a problem, to clarify it, to make it understandable, he took his stand in the front row. ... he was an unswerving advocate of pure thought, of perception of objective reality, and he sharply attacked antiquated conceptions, especially in jurisprudence, pedagogy, and theology. ... He fought untiringly against the belief in witches and sorcery, and here, as elsewhere, he endeavored to eradicate ghosts, to shake the belief in authority sanctified by age, and to replace doctrine with observation. thus, his most effective argument against the persecution of witches was based on a legal ground: only corporeal beings can make pacts, and since devils are ghosts pacts with them are legally void." * Edward J. Maggio relates that "By the beginning of the eighteenth century, the influence of the Malleus [Maleficarum] was still felt, and the criticism of witch-hunting in certain communities could bring disaster to a theological or legal scholar who dared to challenge the prevailing views of the day. CHRISTIAN THOMASIUS was one such scholar. As the first head of the University of Halle in Brandenburg, Prussia, his insistence on religious toleration, criticism of judicial torture, and denial of the crime of witchcraft drew down on him the opposition of both theologians and other jurists while making him a prominent and controversial jurist. From his winter lecture notes of 1702, it becomes clear why he drew so much criticism from the authorities of the time: 'But I deny most firmly and cannot believe that the devil has horns, claws, or talons, or that he appears as a Pharisee, or a monk, or a monster as men depict him. [...] I also cannot believe that the devil can enter into agreements with humans, cause them to give him written documents [that is, pacts] sleep [that is, have sexual intercourse] with them, or that he bears them off to the Blocksberg [sabbat] on a broom or a goat, and so forth. [... ] I hold that since the procedure of the witch trials is inadequate, because jurists have made the pact with the devil the basis of the charge, a thing which is not possible in nature, that one has to proceed cautiously if people are to be convicted of having injured others through witchcraft. There must be many proofs, and the rules of evidence indicated in the Code of Criminal Law are not correct, as has been shown in my disputation.' (SOURCE: Edward J. Maggio, "An Infamous Legal Treatise: An Examination of the Malleus Maleficarum and Its Effect on the Prosecution of Witches in Europe" in: The Digest National Italian American Bar Association Law Journal, 2006). * Very scarce: OCLC lists only 3 copies in North America (Duke; Trinity College Connecticut; and Univ.

        THE OFFERS OF FRANCE EXPLAIN'D.

      London: Printed for A. Baldwin, . 1712 - [2],26pp. Modern half calf over marbled boards, spine gilt. Titlepage lightly soiled, small worm hole through entire text affecting a few letters, otherwise internally clean. A very good copy. A pamphlet highly critical of offers made by French representatives at the time that the Treaty of Utrecht was being negotiated. The Treaty of Utrecht, signed in 1713, ended the War of the Spanish Succession (also known as Queen Anne's War). In early 1712 the French and British were negotiating bilaterally, each making demands on the other for concessions, including those regarding territory in North America. This tract, intensely critical of the entire proposed treaty, includes critiques of the third and fifth articles which relate to American territories, including Hudson Bay, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland. The author's dissatisfaction with the proposed treaty is expressed in the first paragraph: "If I may judg[e] by myself, 'tis impossible to express the surprize, indignation, and concern, which the offers of France for a general peace must have rais'd in the breast of every true Englishman. Is this the good peace we have been made to expect? Are these the fruits of a successful war? Is this the provision made for the safety of our allies?.This the security for Great Britain? Is this reducing the exorbitant power of France, and preserving the liberty of Europe?" EUROPEAN AMERICANA 712/164. KRESS S2596. GOLDSMITHS 4968.

        A TREATISE OF PERSPECTIVE Demonstrative and Practical Illustrated with Copper Cutts.

      B. Tooke and D. Midwinter, London 1712 - Small 8vo, Pagination: pp. xvi, 1-48, 49-50 absent but text continuous, 51-164, 167-168, 165-166, 171-172, 169-170, 6 plates, 173, [1]. Ditton (1675-1715) was a mathematician, and master of a new mathematical school at Christ's Hospital for which this book was written. With William Whiston he derived an impracticable scheme for the determination of longitude by the firing of a shell set to explode at a certain height. He published several other noted works including "The General Laws of Nature and Motions" (London, 1705, a commentary on Newton's "Principia"), and (with Whiston), "A New Method for Discovering the Longitude both at Sea and Land." (London, 1714). Our copy of "A Treatise of Perspective" is complete, with Errata page, although some of the latter pages are bound out of order. The last part of the book is "An Appendix containing a brief Account of some Things of Use, in the Art of Perspective", and includes comments and suggstions on stage design, "lights and shadows", "pictures in pictures", etc. The last page of the book contains an advertisement. The book is dedicated to Francis Nicholson "General of Her Majesty's Forces in North America". On the blank page, on the reverse of the dedication page, a 19th century former owner has practiced his signature. There is a signature to the bottom margin of the title page. The text shows some foxing, mainly to the margins. The six folding plates are foxed and have been repaired by our conservator. Our master binder has hand-tooled a geometrical design from one of the plates on to the front board, and has sewn hand-made headbands on to the book. The book is now bound in full blue goatskin, with the spine in compartments: a very fine presentation. Recent professional re-bind in full decorated goatskin [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

With the manner of laying out the Grounds, cutting the Terrasses... the method of Planting, and raising, in little time, all the Plants requisite in Fine Gardens... Done from the French Original, printed at Paris, Anno 1709. By John James of Greenwich.

      London, Printed by Geo. James, 1712. 4to (252 x 200mm). pp.(16), 218, (2), with 32 double- or folded plates. Contemporary calf, richly gilt spine in 6 compartments with red gilt lettered label, sides with gilt borderlines with coronet corner-pieces (old repair to hinges). Rare first English edition of Dezallier d'Argenville's 'La théorie et la pratique du jardinage', which was published anonymously in 1709 like the present first English edition. The most important work on garden design in the eighteenth century, with plates after designs by Alexandre Le Blond. The work popularized the manner of Le Nôtre and his school in the laying out of ornamental gardens: parterres, bosquets, fountains, basins, and cascades. André Le Nôtre (1613-1700) designed or redesigned the gardens of Versailles, the Tuileries and Fontainebleau. The book ran to 11 editions, in three languages. "The English version of d'Argenville's work first appeared in London in 1712. The translator was the noted London architect John James... It is well produced on good quality paper and profusely illustrated, the plates being the same as those in the original French work, but re-engraved by Michael van der Gucht... 'The theory and practice of gardening' deals fully with the design and formation of fine gardens, commonly called pleasure-gardens.. [and] must have been the inspiration of many formal gardens designed in England during the early part of the eighteenth century..."(Henry II, p. 493-495).

      A La Haye, Chez T. Johnson, MDCCXI, MDCCXII (1712-1713)., 1713. Book. Good. Hardcover. 2 volumes in 1 ; 17 cm. ; OCLC: 43360329 ; contemporary banded leather, peeling at spine ; This is the complete collection of the 85 issued numbers of van Effen's Le Misantrope, considered the first magazine to be published in Europe, patterned on that of The Spectator of Addison and Steele ; Justus van Effen was born in Utrecht, and after a botched attempt to complete a scientific degree at the University of Utrecht, as well as a couple of wild love affairs, he made his way to London where he spent much time in the company of the literary circles that frequented the then-scandalous coffee houses ; upon his return to the Netherlands, he eventually makes his way to the Hague, where he is employed for a time. Here he publishes the magazine in numbers written anonymously, selling for half a stuiver. Although the magazine fails after just two years, and van Effen goes on to publish other, more lavish serial publications, this remains his most important contribution. After much acclaim in his later years, and after arranging for the livelihood of his mistress and illegitimate children by a deathbed marriage, van Effen died of cancer in Den Bosch on September 18, 1735 ; G.

        A Voyage to the South Sea, and Round the World , Perform'd in the Years 1708, 1709, 1710, and 171. Containing a Journal of all memorable Transactions during the said voyage ... A description of the American Coasts, from Tierra del Fuego to California... An Account is given of Mr Alexander Selkirk... during the four years and four months he lived upon the uninhabited Island of Jaun Ferandes

      London: B. Lintot and R. Gosling, A. Bettesworth and W. Innys, 1712. Octavo, with two folding maps and eighteen plates and plans; early panelled calf, in excellent condition including folding aerial plan of the Peruvian capital Cusco. William Dampier's last voyage. First edition of a famous English buccaneering voyage, prepared to beat Woodes Rogers' personal account to the market. This cruise was the last voyage of William Dampier: 'the expedition of 1709 and 1710 had been proposed by Dampier, but he 'was in such reduced circumstances as to engage himself [as] pilot on board the Duke' (Burney). Cooke was second captain on the {i Dutchess} which accompanied Captain Woodes Rogers's {i Duke} on a privateering voyage around the world. Amongst the work's wealth of detail are an account of the sacking of Puna and Guyaquil, the taking of an Acapulco prize ship, and a full translation (including extensive woodcut illustrations of coastal profiles) of a captured Spanish manuscript, effectively being a coasting pilot for the American coast from Tierra del Fuego to California. This was not printed in Rogers's account. Of great interest is the large and detailed folding map of the Amazon river and her tributaries. Cooke claims the map was drawn in 1707 by Jesuits and discovered aboard a Prize captured around that time (he does not specify if this occured during the cruising voyage of the {i Duke} and {i Dutchess).} It was on this voyage that the Scot Alexander Selkirk - the original for Defoe's {i Robinson Crusoe} - was picked up, and this work contains the first printed description of his four-year sojourn on the desolate Juan Fernández Island. Burney tried valiantly to stop the misconception that Selkirk had also been marooned by Dampier, but it makes too good a story. Selkirk was, nonetheless, familiar with Dampier and only agreed to sail once he had established that the famous buccaneer was solely the pilot and not the skipper. Howgego notes that after Selkirk had shipped as second mate on the {i Duke} he 'seemed to get on remarkably well with Dampier'.

Very good. In a custom half morocco slipcase. First edition of both volumes. Cooke was commander of one of the ships in the buccaneering expedition of Capt. Woodes Rogers which circumnavigated the globe, visited the coast of California in 1709, and preyed on Spanish shipping on the west coast of South America. There is an account of California, with a plate showing a native of the region. The expedition also put in at the island of Juan Fernandez, where they discovered the castaway, Alexander Selkirk, the prototype for Robinson Crusoe. The second volume includes a description, taken from a Spanish manuscript, of the west coast of America from Tierra del Fuego to California. A rush to issue an account of this voyage developed between the publishers of this narrative and that of Woodes Rogers. The first volume above is distinguished from the second edition by not having a volume number on the titlepage and having the text that was later duplicated in the second volume.

Inscribed on upper margin of recto of front free end-paper, "Tho. Bridgemans Book/ the Gift of Mr Webster/ 1728." The history of Joseph as related in Genesis in the Old Testament is one of its most powerful narratives; Rose suggests an analogy between Joseph's life and that of Jesus. Famously, Potiphar's wife, whose name history has never disclosed, tried to seduce him, and on the last occasion, Joseph rushed away, leaving her holding his robe. Rose relates her passion thus: "Not long, howe'er her casual Grief restrains/ Lover's stronger Passion struggling in her Veins./ The friendly Part dismiss'd, her Flame returns, And for her Slave, with other Cause, she mourns. His well-proportion'd Limbs, his manly Grace; His flowing Locks, and his Angelick Face,/ (Guiltless Incentives of her shameless Fault)/ Engage in base Designs her busie Thought./ Of her soft Sex she summons all the Art,/ In equal Ardours to inflame his Heart." Readers unfamiliar with the story will be pleased to hear that she is defeated "in all her lewd Designs"; alas for virtue, Joseph, well, I'm not giving away all the plot, but it's rather a good poem in heroic couplets.

Beautifully engraved map, a reduced from of the wall map, of 't Hooge Heemraedschap van Delfland prepared by Nicolaas and Jacob Kruikius. Decorated with the Delfland coat of arms supported by 2 allegorical figures in its centre: 10 large coats of arms of the water district officials down the left and right sides, an elaborate compass rose (north above right): and pastoral scenes. It shows every city, town and village.The compass rose is remarkable, with a globe at its centre showing Africa, Europe and parts of Asia and South America: with gods representing the sun, moon and planets in the other seven: and a celestial map with figures representing signs of the zodiac between the points.The Delfland dike and water authorities commissioned the surveyors Nicolaas (1678-1754) and Jacob Kruikius (1684-1706) to produce the present map in 1701, and they devoted more than a decade to the task. By the mid-century only one of the original dike and water authorities remained in office. The main map was not revised, but the overview map was replaced with a newly drawn and engraved one, ordered in 1750. °Postma, Kruikius\' Kaart van Delfland 1712

        TYPED LETTER SIGNED (TLS). 1 page, from "The Ancient Hillside Citadel," dated "Feby. 12, 1936, to "Endymion" [Samuel Loveman], with the salutation "Hail," signed "HPL." On recto of a single sheet of 8 1/2 x 11-inch plain paper. Accompanied by AUTOGRAPH POSTCARD SIGNED (APS) from Lovecraft to Loveman, postmarked Boston, MA 2 January 1932, and an envelope addressed to Loveman in Lovecraft's hand with Lovecraft's signature and return address on verso, postmarked Providence, RI 17 September 1930

      Unpublished. Faint mailing creases, but fine. (#109131). The postcard was sent from Cambridge, Mass. and shows the head of a Greek athlete from Harvard's Fogg Art Museum. Oddly, Lovecraft refers to it as a "Herm," which is incorrect. (The word, with a lowercase "h," refers to a kind of statue used in Athens, with the head of a bearded Hermes mounted on a square pillar, in the middle of which, usually, was an erect phallus. They were regarded as sacred objects and used as boundary markers -- and later vandalized so often that intact examples are rare.) Recalls an earlier visit to Cambridge that Lovecraft and Loveman made together. Enumerates the museums seen or scheduled to be seen. Paul Cook, who was there with HPL, has scribbled a postscript. The letter, sent from Providence, touches on overwork, illness, amateur press matters, the latest pulp appearances ("Mountains of Madness", first installment, in February Astounding), social visits, and, in a short but striking passage, the description of his return from a visit to Paterson, NJ. "That night I hopped the coach for ancient Providentium and ran into a snowstorm -- being held up an hour at dawn in the exquisite colonial village of Hampton, Conn. -- with houses dating back to 1712 on every hand, and an ethereal white Georgian steeple peeping over the freshly white-deck'd boughs. The delay was for the sanding of a long, sinuous hill -- and I was sorry when we got in motion again." (If Lovecraft died and went to heaven, it might have looked something like this. Or would it be hell for an old atheist to discover that he'd been wrong? One can imagine the roman a clef Twilight Zone version: the bus swerves, HPL is knocked out, wakes up to this vision of a winter paradise, goes out in his worn suit and wanders about with rapt attention, catching a glimpse here and there of people in Colonial dress who ignore him. Looking into the firelit interior of a house, he wonders why he doesn't feel cold. "It was then that he realized he was dead.") Earlier in the letter HPL says he is sending a copy of his CATS OF ULTHAR, the rare 1935 pamphlet handset by Barlow at his Dragon-Fly Press in Florida and printed in forty-two copies. HPL jokes, "If it doesn't fit into your private collection, you might catalogue it at 9000 bucks or so as an early Dragon-Fly Press item." If Loveman had lived another 60 years or so, he could have done just that. The value of this pamphlet passed the $9000 value level a while back. See in this catalogue item LWC inventory #108200 the copy inscribed by HPL to Loveman, one of the two copies set on special paper (Red Lion Text). See also in this catalogue item LWC inventory #109134 for the original manuscript of this short story. Loveman, a poet and bookdealer, was definitely in the inner circle of HPL's friends. They corresponded, praised each other's work and visited when possible. When, Loveman, a Jew, later discovered from Lovecraft's ex-wife, Sonia, the extent of Lovecraft's anti-Semitism and racism, he burned most of his letters from HPL (as Sonia also did). (Joshi, An H. P. Lovecraft Encyclopedia, p. 158.) Extant letters from HPL to Loveman are rare. This is a particularly significant one, demonstrating one of the paradoxes of Lovecraft, who talked a good game of anti- Semitism, but, when it came down to cases, had warm friendships with some of them and married another. The failure of his marriage had more to do with Sonia being a woman than a Jew. He gave away to Loveman his own special copy of CATS, one that Barlow had intend as HPL's personal copy, one of just two Barlow kept the other one.
