Effen, Justus van, 1684-1735
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.

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 suggestions 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 ma … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Treaty of Utrecht]:
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.

[Burnet, Sir Thomas]
London: Printed and Sold by John Baker, 1712. Third edition. [4], 79, [4ads, 1] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. "it is one of the Characteristicks of you Whigs to abhor Peace". A very witty and amusing piece describing the conversation between three gentlemen friends of different political parties, discussing the politics of the day, and whether England should go to war with France or Holland, and what to do with Spain and the Indies and all the problems associated with doing any of the above. "But if a War with Holland were ever so Reasonable, yet it will require Money to carry it on, and I remember the Reason given for our making Peace with France, was our great want of Money. I hope you will not find Money for a War with Holland, when you cou'd not not find any for one with France." Sir Thomas Burnet (1694-1753), a younger son of the Bishop of Salisbury, "was notorious among the men of his time about town for debauchery and wit. Swift, writing of the Mohocks to Stella in 1712, says: 'The bishop of Salisbury's son is said to be of the gang; they are all whigs.' He published many pamphlets, for one of which, 'Certain information of a certain discourse,' the government imprisoned him. ... The whigs, on their accession to power, rewarded him with the consulship at Lisbon" (DNB). In later life Burnet returned to England to practice law; he was knighted and made a judge. Disbound, some browning, else fine.

PRICE, Charles (fl.1680-1720)
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 im … [Click Below for Full Description]

NAUDÉ (Gabriel)
(1712) Réédition peu courante de ce texte d'abord publié à Rome en 1639 a un très petit nombre d'exemplaires (12 à 100, selon les avis divergents des bibliographes). Érudit, bibliographe et historien français, Gabriel Naudé fait de solides études littéraires et philosophiques accompagnées d'immenses lectures, avant d'entreprendre des études de médecine qu'il terminera en 1628. Il devient en 1622 bibliothécaire du président de Mesmes. Toute sa vie, il recherchera avec passion les éditions rares et les livres audacieux, cataloguera et classera une énorme masse d'ouvrages. Il apparaît comme «un type original et pittoresque d'humaniste parisien, capable d'enthousiasme, mais à qui on n'en impose pas, vigilant, caustique, ardent à apprendre, plus lent à croire, prompt à douter» (R. Pintard). Ex-libris. Bon exemplaire malgré un papier un peu roussi. [Attributes: First Edition]

The frontispiece portrait is slightly shaved (no loss of text), and the title page contains the signature of Arvid Bethén (1756-1827) as well as a small ownership stamp with the initials "NJB" (Nils Johan Bethén, b.1752?). Aside from a few ink stains, most notably on pp. 1270-71, the text is free from underscorings and marginal annotations. The title page is printed in red and black. There is a large initial (40 x 35 mm) and a floral ornament at the beginning of the book and a number of smaller initials scattered throughout the text. 20th century bookplate. Caius Plinius Caecilius Secundus (c. 62 - c.113), or Pliny the Younger as he is better known in English, was the nephew and heir of the historian and naturalist Pliny the Elder, who perished in the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 CE. Pliny, who was appointed consul at the age of 39, was one of the most prolific Roman letter-writers. The volume offered here contains the 247 letters published during his lifetime (books I-IX) and the 121 letters he wrote to the emperor Trajan while stationed in the province of Bithynia (book X) as well as his panegyric on the emperor. The official letters were published posthumously, perhaps by Suetonius, one of Pliny's numerous literary friends.

Des Périers, Bonaventure
London 1712. Cymbalum mundi. Or, satyrical dialogues upon several subjects, by Bonaventure Des Perriers, valet-de-chambre to Margaret de Valois, Queen of Navarre. To which is prefix'd a letter conctaining the history, spology, &c. of that work. By Prosper Marchand. Done into English from the French. London: printed for A. Baldwin, 1712. (8)71 pp. 8vo, disbound.First edition in English. Des Périers arrived at the court of Navarre in 1536, and, as a man of considerable learning and literary ability, soon became the queen's secretary. He transcribed for the queen her Heptameron, and it is not unlikely that his duties extended beyond those of a mere copyist; it has occasionally been claimed that the Heptameron was in reality his work. Des Périers quickly absorbed at court a spirit of free enquiry and scepticism, which led in 1537 to the publication of these four satirical dialogues, in imitation of Lucan, under the pseudonym Thomas du Clevier (or Clenier), which was deciphered by 19th-century scholars as an anagram for Thomas L'Incrédule. The original edition, recognized as heretical, was rigidly suppressed by the Sorbonne prior to publication, and is now of the greatest rarity; Brunet knew of the existence of only one copy, and the rumor of one other. This anonymous English translation was made from a text printed at Paris in 1711. Included is an account of the book's genesis and early printing history, and an annotated summary of critical remarks on the text by various writers of the 16th and 17th centuries, beginning with Henri Estienne (here rather quaintly called Harry Ste … [Click Below for Full Description]

Von Kurfürst Friedrich August I. nach Dresden berufen, wurde er 1697 für die Dauer der Abwesenheit des Königs in Polen zum Statthalter von Sachsen bestimmt; 1703 war er am Sturz Wolf Dietrich von Beichlings beteiligt. Als sich [sein] Wunsch, 1711 auf Empfehlung des Königs zum Kardinal gewählt zu werden, nicht erfüllte, zog sich Fürstenberg-Heiligenberg nach Wermsdorf zurück" (DBE). - Papierbedingt stärker gebräunt und mit kl. unbed.
