      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

      - QVE CONTEM AS ARVORES DE COSTADOS Das principaes Familias do Reyno de Portugal, & suas Conquistas. TOMO I. [único publicado] PELO PRIOR D. TIVISCO DE NASAO ZARCO, Y COLONA. EM NAPOLES. Por NOVELO DE BONIS, Anno M. CX. II. (1712). In fólio de 32x22,4 cm. Com [iv], 231 fólios impressos apenas pela frente com excepção do índice que aparece no terceiro e quarto fólio inumerados. Encadernação do século XX inteira de pele castanha marmoreada [executada pelo mestre Império Graça] com nervos, belos ferros a ouro com motivos vegetalistas e título gravado em rótulo vermelho. Impressão com erros tipograficos na numeração das páginas, sem afectar a leitura do texto o texto: 24 por 23, 297 por 197 [e 207 por 208?]. Exemplar com rasgão na folha 116 reforçado com papel colado no verso e pequeno pico de traça na parte superior do festo desde a folha 184 ao fim. Numerosas anotações e acrescentos manuscritos coevos nas folhas 2, 4 a 15, 19 a 35, 37 a 40, 42 a 65, 67 e 68, 70 a 106, 108 a 111, 113 a 130, 132 e 133, 135, 137, 139 a 141, 143 a 173, 175 a 185, 187, 189 a 196, 198 e 199, 201, 203 a 206, 209 a 211, 215, 219 e 220, 222. As folhas 9, 33, 86, 103, 118, 127, 207 têm papeis colados sobre o texto, com acrescentos manuscritos. As folhas 48, 62, 226 têm correcções feitas com uma tira de papel, coeva, com texto impresso colada sobre a parte a corrigir. Exemplar desta polémica obra de genealogia muito valorizado pelas numerosas anotações e acrescemtos em letra coeva que enriquecem quase todas as folhas. Único tomo publicado. A obra saiu anonima, mas é atribuida ao pai do Marquês de Pombal. Impressa em forma de árvores genealogicas. Descreve a genealogia da Casa Real e das famílias mais importantes de Portugal. Cada uma das 230 àrvores genealógicas corresponde a um apelido ou título de varonia de cada casa. Para facilidade de consulta o autor fez um índice dos nomes dos fidalgos e outro dos títulos de que trata que são: 1 duque, 10 marqueses, 35 condes, 4 viscondes e 3 barões. O livro foi proibido por Alvará de 28 de Agosto de 1713, por ordem de D. Pedro II, por ?conter notórios erros contra a vontade do facto, não é conveniente que corra, nem que se lhe dê crédito algum.? Nos anos trinta do século XX levantou-se novamente uma discussão em torno do Theatro Genealógico, depois de dois escritores G. L. Santos Ferreira e Saul Santos Ferreira, neto do anterior, pela análise do frontispício do Theatro Genealógico concluírem tratar-se de um texto cabalístico guematrico de sinais hebraicos, cuja complexa decifração empreenderam e por conjugação com o exame do frontispício da Pericope Genealógica de Frei Jerónimo de Sousa, também publicada sob o pseudónimo de D. Tivisco sem data de edição, concluindo que Cristóvão Colombo seria afinal Salvador Gonçalves Zarco, filho bastardo do Infante D. Fernando, Duque de Viseu e de Beja, sobrinho e herdeiro do Infante D. Henrique. Barbosa Machado 3, 216. Azevedo e Samodães, 623. Palha 4, 4302. Nepomuceno 402. Santos, M. Bibliogr. geral 1, 4776.

      Leiden: Isaac Severinus, 1712. Full Morocco. Very Good. A large paper edition of this classic on self-defense and mano a mano combat. 4to. 27 by 21.5 cm. Title, [2], 71 copper engraved plates, followed by five folding sheets, printing only on rectos, with explanations of the plates -- the purpose of the folds is to allow for the explanations to jut out and thus be readable while viewing the particular plate(s). The work was first published in 1674 in French. This edition is particularly desirable because of its being large paper. (We could find no copies, in book form, of this edition on OCLC, and only a single copy of an earlier edition in French, at the British Library.) Bound in an elaborately decorated Baroque ornamented, or Grolieresque, full crimson crushed morocco binding by Morley Brothers of Oxford. The binding decoration includes interlocking strap work in olive, green and black morocco, gilt dots, gilt floral vine ornamentation and ornamental scrolls, panelled-like turn-ins, etc. With silk doublures and endpapers. Darkening along the spine. Joints and spine tips expertly repaired. A few minor rub or abrasion spots on the boards. Occasional light fox marks or other minor soiling within. A few plates with expert paper restoration in the margins. Overall, still a beautiful copy of an early and fundamental work on wrestling.

First edition in German of Pietro della Valle's deservedly famous narrative of his travels in the Middle East, with an excellent account of Muscat and the Arabian Gulf and reference to Dibba. Della Valle arrived in Istanbul in August 1614, spending a year to explore the city. He continued to Rhodes, Alexandria, Rosetta, Cairo, crossing the Sinai desert to Jerusalem, Damascus and Aleppo. From there he proceeded to Isfahan (Iran) to meet the Safavid ruler Shah Abbas I. He sojourned in Persia until early 1623, witnessing and commenting on the escalating conflict between Shah Abbas and the Portuguese empire. By way of India he sailed for Muscat in January 1623, from where crossed the Arabian Gulf to Basra, continuing overland to Aleppo, arriving in Europe in 1626. "Della Valle displayed excellent narrative and descriptive skills, powers of acute observation, and a genuinely scholarly breadth of learning." (Gurney).Engraved armorial bookplate on paste-down. Evenly browned throughout, some spotting, few quires in volume 3 with wormholes in gutter margin, not affecting the text, otherwise in very good condition.

        Elemens de finance. 1712. Mois d'octobre.

      1712 - Petit in-4 manuscrit (15 x 20 cm) à 18 lignes par page d'une écriture lisible à l'encre brune de (6)-119 pp. chiffrées 117 (page 35bis), veau brun, dos orné à nerfs, tranches marbrées (reliure de l'époque). Premier état manuscrit daté 1712 du volet financier de la Pratique universelle de Nicolas Duval, publié en 1725. Fils du calligraphe Nicolas Duval mort en 1701, l'arithméticien Nicolas II Duval fut lui-même reçu en 1696 maître-écrivain. En 1720, le duc du Maine s'attacha ses services. Cinq ans plus tard Duval publia sous son nom la somme de ses expériences de secrétaire, d'arithméticien et de maître-écrivain dans Pratique universelle des sciences les plus nécessaires au commerce et à la vie civile (Paris, A. X. R. Mesnier), 7 parties en un volume in-folio dont un Traité de l'écriture avec de nombreux exemples de calligraphie et les Elemens de finances. Cette partie financière fut consignée une première fois sans suite par écrit en 1712, sous le voile de l'anonyme. Treize ans plus tard quand paraîtra la première édition avec privilège accordé à Nicolas Duval, les titres de chapitres seront repris à la lettre mais dans un ordre différent tandis que les définitions certes développées emploieront les mêmes formules que dans la copie manuscrite : Revenus du Roy ; Domaines ; Recettes générales des finances de quelle manière se fait l'imposition de la taille ; Fonctions d'un receveur des tailles ; (fonctions) du receveur général des finances ; Capitation ; Des deniers communs ; Bois ; Fermes ; Parties casuelles ; Dons gratuits ; Rentes de nouvelle création ; Augmentation des gages nouvellement créés ; Trésor Royal ; Depenses du Trésor royal ; Chambre des comptes et officiers qui la composent ; Fonctions des maîtres des copmtes - des correcteurs - des auditeurs ; De la manière qu'un auditeur doit procéder à l'examen d'un compte de quelque nature qu'il soit ; Examen de recette ; Examen de dépense ; Du compte des domaines et bois d'une généralité ; Dépense du compte ; Instruction pour la régie des vivres et munitions ; La quantité de ration qui se fournissent aux officiers suivant leur qualité. En 1736, la première édition séparée mais de nouveau anonyme (par le Sieur D?) fut publiée sous le titre Elemens de Finances, contenant des instructions necessaires pour les personnes qui sont dans les emplois et pour celles qui y aspirent, particulièrement dans les Domaines du Roy, dans les Fermes, Traites foraines, Tailles, Gabelles, Aydes & Entrées, Tabac, Postes, Tresor Royal, Parties casuelles, & Etapes, Droits de Monneage, Dons Gratuits, Deniers extraordinaires, Capitation, Dixieme, Deniers communs, Vivres & munitions. On y a joint plusieurs modèles de comptes, états et bordereaux gravés et des modèles de lettres et d'arrêts du Conseil. Avec un Dictionnaire etimologique et historique, des finances (Paris Mesnier, 1736). C'est cette édition que retiendront les bibliographies spécialisées qu'elles attribuent sans commentaire à "Duval". On y retrouve le texte complet de l'édition 1725, lui-même issu de l'ébauche manuscrite de 1712 - considérablement remaniée et augmentée vingt-quatre ans plus tard. Rare ébauche d'un livre rare, rédigée sans nom d'auteur dans les dernières années du règne de Louis XIV et publiée par Nicolas Duval sous la Régence. Belle copie complète, avec très peu de ratures. Ex-libris manuscrit à l'encre du temps M. Dupuiz de Rosiere suivi de la même main sous le titre de la mention (Elemens de finance) ou Memoire Général sur les finances. Reliure frottée, sans la pièce de titre sur le dos. Pour l'édition de 1736 : INED, 1700 ; Stourm, 98 ; Coquelin Guillaumin ; Quérard, II, 741.

      London: 1712. - [24],456,[10, Index],[2, ads]pp. plus three folding maps and seventeen plates (numbered 1-16, plus one unnumbered plan). Contemporary paneled, sprinkled calf, blind ruled, gilt leather spine label. Spine and rear upper corner renewed. Small patch of staining and a small area of barely perceptible insect damage on rear board. Light tanning, occasional foxing. A very good copy. The rare, one-volume, true first edition of an important buccaneering and Pacific voyage, hastily produced to beat the competing narrative of Woodes Rogers to the market. 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. This narrative includes 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. A rush to issue an account of this voyage developed between the publishers of this narrative and that of Woodes Rogers. The present first edition was therefore quickly published, and is distinguished from the second edition by consisting only of one volume. The last chapter of this edition, a compressed account of the voyage home, was duplicated and expanded to comprise a second volume in the second edition later in the same year.

Some passages in parallel Spanish and Nahuatl. The two books match in format and typography and are often bound together.With contemporary owner's inscription on the title-page, two modern bookplates.
