      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.

        The History of Joseph. A Poem. In Six Books. With Cuts proper to each Book

      London: Printed for James Knapton..., 1712. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. 8vo, 192 x 115 mms., pp. [xii], 179 [180 adverts], engraved frontispiece and 5 other engraved plates (by Kirkall after F. Boitard), contemporary panelled calf; fore-margins of last blank leaves affected by damp with a little loss, last two leaves of text slightly affected by damp but with no loss, front joint slightly cracked, upper rear joint slightly cracked, wear to top and base of spine. 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.

        Expugnatio appellationis, vel appellantis a Decreto, & executione Decreti, Eminentissimi Cardinalis Patriarchae Antiocheni. cum Potestate Legati à Latere in Regno Chinarum D. Caroli de Tournon, emanati die 25 Fanuary 1707 / / Per Fr. Augustinum de Caizedo y Valasco.

      Villafranca: 1712 - 4 hojas, 125 pàginas, una hoja blanca. Encuadernación en pergamino de época No en Palau, Cordier, Lust. Primera edición rara. Testimonio del apostolado cristriano en Oriente y en China el cual pertenece a la controversia de los Ritos. El agustino Agustín Caicedo y Velasco (1667-1738), era originario de la ciudad de Bogotá y uno de los primeros escritores colombianos. Llevó una vida pintoresca; sirvió de intermediario con contrabandistas holandeses que compraban tabaco y café en Colombia lo que le valió la amonestación de sus superiores. Decidido partidario del Archiduque en la guerra de sucesión española viajó a Roma hacia 1709 con el fin de conseguir la confirmación de sus derechos como misionero. En 1712 llegó a Curaçao (1715-1738) dçnde fue acusado de ser espía del Archiduque y atacar la fe católica, en esa ciudad ejerció de Prefecto Apostólico realizando una notable tarea como defensor de los negros. La Expugnatio es una impugnación de un decreto del Patriarca de Antioquía, cardenal de Tournon. Rivas Sacconi dice que no sólo no es una impugnación sino una apología del decreto y una refutación de la "apelación contra él intentada".

Priestman I, ii (second issue). Smith 429. BUC p. 629. RISM L2713 (not distinguishing between issues). & & "Loeillet de Gant, as he styled himself on all his published compositions, went to Lyons in the service of the archbishop, Paul-François de Neufville de Villeroy, and died there at an early age - before 1729 and probably around 1720... His sonatas are in the Italian style of Corelli and are generally of the sonata da chiesa type... The bass parts are more independent than those of John Loeillet of London, not only in the fugal second movements, where they may play an equal part, but also in the slow movements, where they often have their own rhythmic patterns throughout the movement; his basses often start a movement with two or three bars solo before the recorder enters. Loeillet de Gant had a stronger contrapuntal sense than his two cousins; occasionally his fugal movements have clearly differentiated countersubjects but they lack the skill shown by many of his contemporaries. Unlike John Loeillet, Loeillet de Gant ornamented many of his slow movements in the French manner, with flourishes of demisemiquavers and notes perdues (the ‘little note that does not enter into the bar'."

        A Correct Map Shewing all Towns, Villages, Roads the Seats of ye Nobility and Gentry, Wth. Whatever else is remarkable within 30 miles of London

      London: Charles Price, 1712. Copper-engraved map, with full original colour, printed on laid paper, in excellent condition. 26 ¾ x 39 3/8 inches. A very fine impression of Charles Price's rare map of London and its environs, which became one of the most copied maps in England. Charles Price was a land surveyor and mapmaker, whose maps were nearly all collaborative efforts. After his association with John Senex, he worked with Jeremiah Seller and later George Willdey. During these collaborations he published a number of fine maps, which were all very decorative and extremely detailed. His maps are now extremely rare and are not often found on the market. This is one of the few maps that Price seems to have produced through his own efforts, and it is considered by many to be his finest work. It proved so popular upon publication that it quickly became one of the most pirated maps in England. Henry Overton, George Willdey, Thomas Bowles, Thomas Jefferys, and Laurie and Whittle all printed copies of Price's large London map. Needless to say, the original Price map is by far the rarest and most valuable publication and therefore it is a true collector's item for anyone interested in London maps. With London in the center, the map extends outward for thirty miles in every direction. The course of the river Thames is beautifully plotted and great attention has been paid to the various geographical features of the terrain. The chart is flanked on either side by two long location keys, which list the principle towns, villages, roads, and manor houses. This is a lovely impression of this rare map of London and its environs, and is perhaps the best example of Price's workmanship.

"Leonard Welsted, a Westminster and Cambridge man, wrote a good deal of verse and , indeed, hardly deserved, though he had provoked it, his place in the "inferno" of THE DUNCAID even as a versifier [earned him Pope's satire, condemnation and lasting enmity]. But his translation of Longinus does not show any mark of dullness, while the original remarks connected with it show that, if he could not exactly produce poetry, he could appreciate it in Spenser and Shakespeare to a degree not common in his day."

        115 Broadsides Announcing Examinations and Other Academic Events

      1712. [Legal Education]. [University of Louvain]. [115 Broadsides Announcing Examinations and Other Academic Events in the Faculty of Laws]. Louvain, 1712-1794. 115 folio broadsides (17" x 13"). Light toning, some minor stains, flaws, tears or worming, small stab holes to top center margins (for filing), all generally in very good condition, though one broadside has flaws affecting text. 47 broadsides have brief contemporary annotations (usually a note on the examination on verso, some notes relate to legal content). An interesting collection. * Disputations were important events in the early modern university. They functioned as exams, inaugural events and teaching exercises. Our collection offers 115 unlocated broadsides from 18th-century Louvain, mostly from the 1770s, advertising disputations in law. The broadsides list the name of the candidate or speaker, the date of the event and the legal passages and questions that will form the basis of the examination or disputation and the presiding professor or respondent. 46 examples in this collection are the equivalent of present-day bar exams. Two of the broadsides are for theological disputations on law-related subjects and one is a broadside poem in Dutch from 1712 congratulating a law student (one Jan Baptist Coeck) for having passed his exam. 47 items have annotations. Most are notes relating to the event, some are jurisprudential comments. A complete list of the broadsides is available on request.

        Il Newtonianismo per Le Dame, Ovvero Dialoghi Sopra La Luce e i Colori.Naples: 1737.

      First edition, first issue, of one of the earliest and most influential popularizations of Newtonian science, not just optics (as stated on the title) but the whole system including universal gravitation. "Translated into six languages and published in thirty editions, it served as one of the main channels through which Newtonian ideas reached the general European public (Gjertsen, <i>Newton Handbook</i>, p. 14).<br/><br/> The work takes the form of a series of dialogues with the 'Marchese di E?', in which the two keep up a gallant banter as she is quickly drawn into the romance of science, though as Algarotti warns, in speaking of Descartes, 'The Mathematicians... are said to resemble Lovers. If what you grant them at first be ever so little, they know how to make so good an Advantage of it, as to lead you insensibly further than you ever imagined'. So keen is the Marchese to continue their conversations that when she sees a tiresome sonneteer approaching, she asks Algarotti what to do to fend him off and they agree to talk mathematics until he gives up. And when Algarotti explains universal gravitation, the Marchese muses, 'I cannot help thinking... that this proportion in the Squares of the Distance of Places, or rather of Times, is observed even in Love. Thus after Eight days Absence, Love becomes sixty-four times less than it was the first Day, and according to this Proportion it must soon be entirely obliterated. I fancy there will be found, especially in the present Age, very few Experiments to the contrary'. <br/><br/> The frontispiece shows Algarotti (1712-64) with the Marquise du Chatelet, suggesting that Algarotti originally intended to dedicate the book to her (as she had expected). In the event the dedication was to the old Cartesian Fontenelle, and the frontispiece was not used in later editions. Piazzetta, who with Tiepolo dominated eighteenth-century history painting in Venice, was also widely known for his delightful small secular illustrations for printed books. <br/><br/> The work was issued again later in the same year with the errata corrected, and a second edition appeared in 1739. It was translated into English by the poet Elizabeth Carter, also in 1739, and continued to be published in various languages for the next hundred years (the above quotations are from Carter's version, I, p. 48 and II, p. 170). <br/><br/> Babson 145 (lacking frontispiece); Wallis 194.. 4to (220 x 160 mm) pp. xi, [1], 300, [4: one page of errata, last three blank], including engraved frontispiece by Marco Aloise Pitteri (1702-86) after Giambattista Piazzetta (1682-1754).

        A Cruising Voyage round the World

      London,: Printed for A. Bell and B. Lintot,, 1712.. Octavo, five folding maps including the frontispiece, old ownership inscription to title page, bookplates; a good copy in old dark calf, rebacked with most of original spine laid down. First edition of one of the classics of British buccaneering, a great adventure story and an important Pacific voyage account which is 'very rare' (Borba de Moraes). Despite its relevance to Dampier, who sailed as pilot on this privateering expedition which crossed the Pacific to Asia, this work was not included in the 1729 collected works, making this an appealing addition for owners of that set (see catalogue number 121).Rogers great success was the capture of the Manila galleon at Puerto Seguro, but he also rescued Alexander Selkirk - the prototype for Robinson Crusoe - from Juan Fernandez Island. Rogers' eye-witness account is rich in stirring adventure and gives a wonderfully atmospheric account of the buccaneering life, not hesitating to show himself as a tough captain controlling an errant crew. Although the cruise amassed tremendous loot, conflict between Rogers' and his men dragged on for years in the courts, and Dampier never lived to see his share, dying in 1715.The work also contains and important early description of California (pp. 279-312). The significant 56-page Appendix, with four folding charts, is sub-titled 'A Description of the Coast, Roads, Harbours, Rocks, Shoals, Islands, Capes, Makings of Land, Courses and Distances, from Acapulco... to the Island of Chiloe... From the best Spanish Manuscripts taken in the South-Sea'. There is mention of this on the title-page too: 'with maps of all the Coast, from the best Spanish Manuscript Draughts...'. For the buccaneers such maps wrenched from the Spanish were as good as treasure and equally to be boasted of.Rogers's account went through four editions, all scarce. This copy originally belonged to Sir James Agnew of Lochnaw, and has his armorial bookplate.Borba de Moraes, p. 744; Cowan, p. 194; Hill, 1479; NMM, Piracy & Privateering, 472; Sabin, 72753; Streeter (Jr.) sale; Wagner, 'Spanish Southwest', 78.

Ovid&#39;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&#39;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&#39;t Forget Her Birthday!, Let Her Miss You&#151;But Not For Long, and Don&#39;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.

        Catalogue des Livres, Estampes & Desseins du Cabinet des beaux Arts, & des Sciences,

      appartenent au Baron Tessin, Marèchal de la Cour du Roy & Sur-Intendent de Battiments & Jardins Royaux de Suede. 2 p.l., 124 pp. Small 4to, edition binding of cont. speckled sheep (a few unimportant defects to spine), spine gilt, a.e.g. Stockholm: J.G. Matthieu, 1712. This catalogue -- which is of the greatest rarity -- describes one of the choicest collections of books and art of the early 18th century, comprising about 1700 books, manuscripts, and many thousands of drawings. The collection was formed by Nicodemus Tessin (1654-1728), a member of the prominent Swedish family and an architect by profession, who was Superintendent of Public Buildings in Sweden. He was one of the great European architects of the late 17th and early 18th centuries; his whole career was, however, limited to his native country of Sweden. His duties extended far beyond building and maintenance: he had to design court festivals and funerals and take responsibility for almost all events of a visual nature in Stockholm. Tessin was also one of the greatest art and book collectors of Europe and bought from all the leading dealers in Paris for an extended period. His agent in Paris was Daniel Cronström (1655-1719), Sweden&#39;s First Secretary in Paris and later Ambassador to France from 1703. The first part of the catalogue (pp. 1-52), listing circa 700 items, is devoted to architecture and art in their widest aspects: architecture proper, fortification, garden architecture, works on perspective and painting, ornamental engraving, archeology (including an extensive collection of early works on Rome), interior decoration, etc. The catalogue also describes drawings by such artists as Leonardo, Raphael, Caracci, Poussin, Coypel, and others. These drawings, while briefly described in only five pages of the catalogue, comprise about 18,000 items. The second part -- about 800 works -- is a collection of books and manuscripts on all sorts of public festivities: royal entries, tournaments and carousels; theater and opera decoration and performances; "fêtes galantes," masques and ballets, fireworks and illuminations; sacred festivities and processions; funeral processions and decorations; and costume balls. This section is very remarkable from a bibliographical point of view as it provides exact descriptions giving not only imprint date and printing place, but also the number of plates. The majority of Tessin&#39;s book collection is now in the Royal Library of Sweden and the prints and drawings are preserved in the Nationalmuseum. Our copy does not contain the very rare supplement of 17 pages, which is not present in most of the few known copies (such as the only example listed in N.U.C.). A fine copy. Unknown to Ruggieri. Bookplate of the Fideikommissbiblioteket. .

        Sei omelie di nostro Signore papa Clemente Undecimo Esposte in versi da Alessandro Guidi

      Rome: Francesco Gonzaga, 1712. Extremely rare first edition of this luxuriously illustrated anthology of extracts from papal sermons delivered between 1703-09, in Latin prose and facing Italian verse: an unusual example of Baroque ecclesiastical culture from the pontificate of Clement XI. On the basis of extreme rarity and contents, the volume numbers among those commemorative and honorific volumes which were never sold in the trade, but offered as a ceremonial gift to cardinals, ambassadors, and other important personages&#151;corroborated by the ownership inscription in the present volume by a monsignor during Clement&#146;s papacy. The volume is singular in our experience for its contents. Latin extracts of Clement&#146;s sermons, generally rather brief, are printed on the left side of the page, then freely and somewhat copiously versified in Italian by the poet Guidi. The sparsity of the elegantly printed text leaves positively wasteful margins! Each sermon is preceded by a full-page engraving on the subject of the sermon (the Holy Family adoring the Christ Child for Christmas, the Resurrection for Easter, etc.) designed by Pietro Leone Ghezzi, one of the principal artists in Clement&#146;s retinue, and engraved by Roman engravers generally also associated with Clementine projects (Frey, van Westerhout etc.) The designs were made expressly for the present volume and are echoed, as it were, in a series of initials and vignettes devoted to the same theme; as such, they must have been engraved for the present volume and not simply taken from the printer&#146;s stock. If somewhat overshadowed by Maratti in his lifetime and by his epoch-making role as the first professional caricaturist, Ghezzi (1674-1755) was nonetheless an important painter of religious subjects, who worked on Albani&#146;s most prestigious public projects. The surfaces of Ghezzi&#146;s paintings were considerably less finished than those of Maratti, and he seems more receptive to Venetian color and unfinishedness&#151;thus showing a different aspect of Albani taste. Ghezzi was commissioned in 1712 (the year this book was published) to paint The Election of St. Fabian for the Albani Chapel in S. Sebastiano fuori le Mura. Within the next decade, he helped paint the frescos the ancient basilica of S. Clemente and the nave decoration of St. John Lateran. His portraits, including one of Clement XI, are unusually informal and realistic, possibly due to Ghezzi&#146;s experience at caricature. Alessandro Guidi (1650-1712), who translated the sermons, was a prolific Arcadian poet. OCLC records a single copy (Berkeley), and we locate no additional American copies.. Large 4to. [28 x 20.5 cm], engraved portrait of Clement XI, xvi pp., full-page engraving, 213 pp., including 5 full-page engravings paginated with text. 18th-c. vellum over boards, spine with 5 raised bands and red morocco label, gilt-stamped; covers with large blind-tooled central ornament, blind-tooled filets and ornaments. Short tears at head and foot of spine and a few nicks there. Early inscription on front pastedown mentions Monsignor Bianchini, &#147;Prelato Domestico e Camerario segreto di S. Santita Papa Clem. XI.&#148; Mild finger-soiling in margins of title and a little foxing on some text leaves, but overall a very fine, attractive copy.
