AN UNPUBLISHED MANUSCRIPT OF A QUAKER PREACHER, FRIEND OF WILLIAM PENN, FOUNDING FATHER OF PENNSYLVANIA, WHOSE SON MARRIED PENN'S DAUGHTER, MARGARET. 57 pages. Bound in Contemporary full calf, gilt, with red title label to spine. An interesting and poignant memorial written by her widower Robert Freame, of Cirencester stock but lately of London, for their five children "that you may retain a lively and sensible remembrance of her virtuous and religious life". Robert first gives a short account of Anne's life, that she was devout from the age of twelve and began preaching at the age of fifteen, encouraged by eminent Quaker friends such as William Penn, Charles Marshall and Francis Stamper. She travelled the country preaching, visiting almost all of the English counties as well as Wales, and was well received. At the age of 24, she married Robert and together they had nine children, of which five survived. She appears to have been a quite remarkable woman who successfully balanced a family life with preaching and travelling............ "As she was earnest and diligent in this her spiritual service, she was mindful and willing to return home when her service was over". Anne had been a sickly child, and she contracted cold from laying in damp sheets whilst on a trip to the north of England. Robert then gives a detailed account of her death-bed scene and sayings. She is visited by William Penn, who she refers to as "the General and his Wife, whom I have often thought on with Pity for his Affliction:- The Lord comfort him, and give him patience. And I pray God, who has bl … [Click Below for Full Description]

A great classic of the theory of natural law, Pufendorf prolongs Hobbes's reflections on the contract which binds the people to the sovereign by setting limits to absolutism, he considers peace as one of the determining principles of natural law. As for international law, Pufendorf deepens the notions of just and unjust wars. The author innovates on many points, first of all natural right is for him inherent to the human condition that makes man a sociable being. Society becomes a moral being based on conventions and formalizes the social contract. In addition, the author seeks to found a science of law, relying on a mathematical method revealed by Cartesian philosophy.Jean Barbeyrac, austere and Protestant scholar, professor of law in Lausanne, had also translat … [Click Below for Full Description]

Giovanni MONTECALERIO (da Montecalerio) (1578 - 1654)
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.

Alexander Pope
Bernard Lintott. Condition: Very Good. SIGNED BINDING by Lloyd and Wallis. Slim 12mo, late 19th century full navy crushed morocco gilt, raised bands, gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. First complete edition and first separate publication of Pope's mock-heroic masterpiece; the 1st edition to contain all five cantos of the poem. Illustrated with an engraved frontispiece and five plates, as well as a later portrait of Arabella Fermor Inserted opposite the dedication. Pope was initially inspired to compose The Rape of the Lock in order to resolve a quarrel that arose between the Fermor and Petre families after Robert lord Petre snipped a lock of Arabella Fermor's hair. Hoping to ease the animosity between the two families through playful humor, Pope, with Arabella Fermor's permission, first published The Rape of the Lock in two cantos in Lintott's "Miscellaneous Poems and Translations" in 1712. Pope's genius, however, is fully displayed in the five-canto version of the poem in which he expands the sketch to include divine machinery, albeit on the miniature scale of sylphs and gnomes. "One of Pope's most brilliant performances, it has also been one of his most popular" (DFrabble, 810). Rothschils170. Bookplates. Early owner inscription, dated 1766, and a few other small ink marks on washed title page. A lovely copy, beautifully bound in full morocco by Lloyd and Wallis. Photos available upon request.

Ad 1: Medina, Imprenta en Mexico IV, 2370; Sabin 60913 ("rare"); ad 2: Medina, Imprenta en Mexico IV, 2371; Sabin 60911 ("rare and important"). Two rare first and only editions of important works for the history of the Nahuatl language of the Aztecs, by Father Manuel Perez. Nahuatl was spoken throughout central Mexico before the Spanish conquest. They also provide information about culture, habits and manners among the central Mexican Indians, for example in the confessions.Ad 1: The first work, discussing the five sacraments, is written primarily in the Spanish language, but with responses, sacraments, and confessions in Catalan and Nahuatl in parallel columns. This delightful work, whose title means "Indian lantern", is described in its subtitle as a guide for ministers among the Indians and a handbook for priests with Nahuatl-speaking parishioners.Ad 2: After Pérez had written his handbook for parish priests he set about codifying his teaching methods, presented in this grammar of the Nahuatl language, once again with extensive preliminaries dated 1712 and the contents and errata at the end. 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. In good condition, with title-page slightly soiled and upper inside corner of first two quires torn off, not affecting the text.

One of the classic South Seas privateering voyages, and the source for "Robinson Crusoe." "Edward Cooke was second captain on board the 'Duchess', the ship which accompanied the 'Duke', both under Captain Woodes Rogers, on a privateering voyage around the world...

See Hill 372 who notes that this first edition was "hastily produced ... in order to beat Woodes Rogers's account to the market." See also Streeter IV, 2428. Howes, C-733. NMM Catalog IV, 99.

Nunez, Antonio
Viuda de Ribera Calderon, Mexico City, 1712. Quarto, 6 [ff], pp 160 with index leaf, and half-page wood-engraving in text. Beristain has much to say of our author, devoting 2 and a half pages to him. Nunez (1618 - 1695) was a native Mexican and an important member of the Jesuit order in his day. Author of many books, confessor to archbishops and viceroys, as well as several convents, of which his most famous penitent was Sor Juana Inez de la Cruz. This book was especially written for use in convents. An early inscription states that it is from the convent of Sta. Teresa la Antigua in Mexico City -- the earliest Carmelite foundation in the Mexico and also associated with Sor Juana, though the rule proved to be too strict for her and she later moved to another order. Another contemporary ink inscription identifies the book belonged to "ma amada hija Sra Madre Margarita de Santa Inez." The woodcut, though crude, is particularly charming. [Medina, Mexico 2335; Palau 197358; Sabin 56325.] The title is rare in the trade, only 2 appearances at auction, and one of those defective.

NAVAL ARCHITECTURE)
Nine full-page brush & ink illus. 20 folding leaves. 8vo (238 x 160 mm.), orig. wrappers, sewn as issued. Japan: at end is written "1712." A fine manuscript describing the design and construction of atakebune, large Japanese warships which were built in the 16th and early 17th centuries. At the end of the manuscript, we find the name "Yuken Masafusa Hojo." The Hojo clan, which enjoyed its greatest power in the 12th- and 13th-centuries, remained a force in Japan for many centuries. They built numerous fortified castles and military ships and in 1645 Ujinaga Hojo (1609 or 1610-70), wrote Heiho Yukan [in trans.: The Paragon of Military Strategy], one of the most important books on the subject published in Japan. The Japanese warships described in our manuscript consist of a rectangular wooden box above the hull. The sides were covered with copper or iron panels and ornately decorated in gold and silver. The bow of the ship also had iron protection for ramming. Small holes or windows were built along the side of the ship for guns and bows. There is a recipe using lacquer, oil, and pine tree resin for waterproofing the ship. Numbers of required samurai and seamen are also provided. The illustrations depict cross-sections and side views along with an image of the mast with sails. There are also images of handheld weapons (spear, hooks, etc.) and ladders to attack warriors on opposing ships. The final eight pages contain a description of a sea battle - we are unable to determine which one - with details of numbers of different kinds of warships (including the smaller seki bune and … [Click Below for Full Description]

Roberto Bellarmino - Congregazione dei Riti gesuiti jesuit Zuccherinius, Joannes , Montecatinius, Thomas , de Grandis, Felix. Galileo
Rev. Camera Apostolica, Roma. In-folio;parte finale della causa di beatificazione stampata nel 1712, pp. 158. La prima parte comparve nel 1676, in fine "Thomas Montecatinus Advoc. Felix de Grandis è Collegio Patronorum caus. Sac. Pal. Apost. Revisa Ioannes Zuccherinius Subpromotor fidei". Nei documenti il Bellarmino viene associato spesso a Torquemada, viene citata, a suo merito, la controversia sul moto del sole e della terra. Roberto Bellarmino (Montepulciano 1542 - Roma 1621) fu teologo e cardinale, dal 1599; è ricordato anche per essere stato inquisitore nei più importanti processi di eretici della storia della scienza e della filosofia, quello contro Giordano Bruno, un processo per la cui istruzione lavorò dal 1593 e che si concluse nel 1600, e quello contro Galileo Galilei; è noto l'atteggiamento di apertura che il cardinale ebbe nei confronti delle scoperte scientifiche, che accoglieva però solo come ipotesi, e la corrispondenza che intrattenne con lo stesso Galileo; fu proprio Bellarmino nel 1616 preparò la lettera con l'ammonizione attraverso cui la commissione vaticana nella prima parte del processo intimava a Galileo di non continuare a sostenere la teoria eliocentrica. Il processo per la sua causa di beatifiazione e canonizzazione fu molto lungo e travagliato, tanto che la prima si concluse nel 1923 e la seconda nel 1930.

FREIND, John.
London: Printed by Philip Gwillim, for Jonah Bowyer. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH of the first academic lectures on chemistry published in England. Freind was the first holder of the Readership in Chemistry established at Oxford in 1704, and he lectured in the Ashmolean Museum, emphasising the importance of accurate experimentation. George Wilson had earlier given chemistry lectures in London, on which his Compleat course of chymistry, 1698, was based. "In 1704 Freind was appointed professor of chemistry at Oxford, and delivered a series of lectures which were published in 1709 as Praelectiones chymicae. In these he attempted to explain chemical phenomena in terms of atoms and a Newtonian short-range force, following the work of John Keill... A second edition of Freind's Praelectiones chymicae was published in Amsterdam in 1710, leading to a critical review in the Leipzig Acta Eruditorum. Freind replied in a Latin letter in the Philosophical Transactions in 1711 in which he defended Newton's theory of matter. The German criticism was part of the wider debate between partisans of Newton and Leibniz on the origins of the calculus. Freind's defence of the Newtonian position undoubtedly paved the way for his election to the Royal Society in March 1712. In that year he issued an English translation of Praelectiones chymicae which included his reply" (ODNB). See Musson & Robinson, Science and technology in the Industrial Revolution, p. 32.

Pomet, Pierre.
Pr. for R. Bonwicke, William Freeman, Timothy Goodwin, et al, 1712. First edition of the first appearance in English of Pomet's famed catalogue of pharmaceuticals, originally published in French in 1694. In his capacity as "Chief Druggist to the late French King Lewis XIV," Pomet (1658-99) gained a highly favorable reputation for his knowledge and use of botanical and other drugs, and in 1694 he presented as much of his knowledge as he thought wise in his Histoire générale des drogues. This English edition adds material from the works of Joseph Pitton de Tournefort (1656-1708) and Nicolas Lémery (1645-1715), and was translated by Joseph Browne (1673-1721), a Lincoln College-educated physician and satirist. Highly influential in its time, this materia medica covers botanical, zoological, and mineral sources and is illustrated with => 86 etched plates, mostly with four specimens per plate; but there are also full-page images of a silk factory, a fishery, and of "negro's [sic] making Roucou." Other plates are of unicorns, whales, rhinos, and elephants. The volume is printed in roman type with some italic in double-column format, with its plates close to the texts that refer to them; the main title-page and that of vol. II are printed in red and black. The => Americana content is noteworthy, with discussion of cacao, chocolate, "long American pepper," tobacco, and so on. Two surprising sections are devoted to glass manufacture and achieving color in glass, and soap making.

This work predates Pope's translation of 1715 and Pope "borrowed from this heavily when he began to publish his own famous Iliad translation three years later" (ODNB). It contains 24 plates after those of Dacier's edition by Antoine Coypel. This set unfortunately lacks the plates for books XIX and XX.
