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]

SENEX, John (1678 - 1740)
[London]: Thomas Bowles, John Bowles & Son, Robt. Sayer, 1712. Engraved with contemporary outline color, small marginal tears. Large, handsome and interesting map of Russia at the time of Peter the Great. An attractive double folio sized map of European Russia by the great English cartographer, John Senex (1678-1740). Russia was continually expanding during this period in virtually every direction, though the expansion westward was always more costly. The map notes "Petersburg", which was Peter the Great's most prized accomplishment, giving Russia access to the Baltic and a new, more "European" capital. There would ultimately be more territory added to the northwestern boundary, which was won after years of struggle with Sweden and the Poland-Lithuania Commonwealth. The map extends to the Sea of Azov in the south to include Ukraine, called here "Ukraine Land of the Cosaques" and several regions farther south and east called "Cosaques Zaporoski" and "Cosaques Donski". The map was made during the reign of Peter the Great, who, while the country was growing territorially, advanced European ideas and manners, despite the recalcitrant Orthodox hierarchy. The very idea of nationhood was new to Russia and the country in a generally reluctant way began to modernise. Nevertheless, the map notes the location of many monasteries, which indicates how important and pervasive the old religion was. Senex also provides interesting historical notes, for example, "Deserts where are the ruins of many Citys (sic) and Towns destroyed by Tamerlan" not far from the Volga River.

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.

in Verlegung Jeremiae Wolffen,, Augsburg, 1712. 31 x 20 cm. Mit Gestochenem Frontispiz, Titel, 2 Seiten Vorrede, 424 Seiten mit 83 Kupferstichen (Emblemen) im Text, 4 Seiten Register. Erste deutsche Ausgabe, vorher waren bereits mehrere lateinische Ausgaben erschienen. Franz Reinzer (1661-1708) war Jesuitenprofessor, überwiegend in Linz. - Seine Meteorologia philosophico-politica ist, wie der Titel andeutet, ein meteorologisches, astrologisches und politisches Kompendium. Es umfasst 12 Dissertationen - die meisten folgen Athanasius Kircher. Zu den behandelten Themen gehören Kometen, Meteoriten, Blitze, Winde, Fossilien, Metalle, Gewässer und unterirdische Schätze und Geheimnisse der Erde. Illustrationen stammen von Wolffgang Joseph Kadoriza. Reinzer beabsichtigte, dieses Werk von Kaiser Joseph I. lesen zu lassen, der den Jesuiten gegenüber feindlich eingestellt war. Seine 12 Dissertationen sind in 84 "Fragen" unterteilt. Diese Fragen berücksichtigen nicht nur verschiedene Naturphänomene, sondern auch die Anwendung angemessener politischer Strategien und Verhaltensweisen als Reaktion darauf. So diskutiert Reinzer in seiner Untersuchung der Kometen, die sich mit dem Auftreten jedes nennenswerten Kometen von 1500 bis 1688 beschäftigt, über die vorhergesagten politischen Umwälzungen und anderen politischen Ereignisse, und bittet Joseph, ein weiser und gerechter Herrscher zu sein. - naturwissenschaftliches Emblembuch, && 1530 g.

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... It is generally accepted that Daniel Defoe used this account of Alexander Selkirk's years on Juan Fernandez Island for his 'Robinson Crusoe' as it was the first book containing it." 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.
