      London: for Jonas Brown,, 1715. Containing, the Lives and Memorable Actions of it Kings from the first Erecting of that Monarchy to this Time; an Exact Description of all its Dominions; a Curious Account of India, China, Tartary, Kermon, Arabia, Nixabur, and the Islands of Ceylon and Timor; as also of Cities occasionally mention'd, as Schiras, Samarkand, Bokhara, etc. … To which is added, an Abridgement of the Lives of the Kings of Harmuz, or Ormuz. Octavo (188 114 mm). Later 18th-century panelled calf, rebacked and relined probably in the 19th century with the original flat gilt spine laid down, red morocco label, gilt edges, marbled endpapers. Frontispiece trimmed and laid down verso of second blank. Lascelles bookplate to second blank recto; faded contemporary ownership inscription to title. Joints and extremities skilfully refurbished, contents variably browned, occasional spotting, small hole to title not affecting text, First gathering dampstained. A good copy. First and only edition. "The book is a translation of a work in Spanish published in 1610 by Pedro Teixeira (erroneously identified by Stevens as Antony), a Portuguese traveler and writer about whom little is known. Some time after 1586 Teixeira traveled to Portuguese Goa in present-day India. From there he went to Persia, where he became proficient in Persian and acquired books and manuscripts on the history of the country. Teixeira's book consisted of a summary and translation of the Tarikh-i rawzat al-safa ("History of the kings of Persia") by Mir Khvand, Muhammad ibn Khavandshah (1433–98), a summarized translation of a Persian chronicle of the kings of H[o]rmuz, and an account of his own voyage from India to Italy in 1600–01. Stevens's work contained numerous errors and inaccuracies, but it played an important part in making Persia better known to 18th-century European and especially British readers" (Library of Congress, online.) This copy comes from from the library of British Arabist and colonial agent Col. S. B. Miles (1838–1914), with his ownership inscription to the initial blank, a printed bookplate to front pastedown noting his widow's bequest of the collection to Bath Public Library in 1920, and associated manuscript shelf-marks and blind-stamps as usual: an excellent association.

        Elevation of the Rt Hon the Earl of Chesterfield's House

      A wonderfully detailed architectural engraving by Colin Campbell  from his breathtaking book Vitruvius Britannicus, or the British Architect, Containing the Plans, Elevations, and Sections of the Regular  Buildings Both Publick and Private in Great Britain... , which was published in London in 1715-1767. Overall this print measures 21.5"x18", and is in good condition with some foxing/staining and creasing.Colin Campbell was a Scottish-born architect who published the single most influential work of architecture published in the Georgian era. As the title suggests, the work focuses upon the writings of the Roman architectural author, Vitruvius, and testifies to Campbell's outright rejection of the French influence upon British architecture, so prevalent during the reign of the late Stuart monarchs.  The book champions the classical purity of line which pervaded the work of the seventeenth-century English court architect, Inigo Jones and the sixteenth-century Italian architect, Andrea Palladio, both considered exemplars of the style by Campbell. However, the book also represents the rise of the nobility and professional designer as arbiters of fashion, a facet of British culture previously dominated by royalty.  The British countryside, as we know it today, was the creation of the Georgian period, and the result of the  pursuit of profit and pleasure.  The nobility now enjoyed new found wealth largely due to the Seven Years’ War when the Crown had given land to loyal supporters.  This land was mainly concentrated in large estates and its owners either sat in the House of Commons or knew people who did.  Thus, the land enclosure acts, which allowed for the most modern methods of farming, were easily passed and as a result agriculture became a profitable enterprise.  For the first time the elite could afford to build grand homes for themselves and to receive members of the royal family.  While ‘Capability’ Brown supplied the design for magnificently landscaped gardens, Campbell’s Vitruvius Britannicus provided a marvelous template for the design of the house. The first part of this ambitious work was completed in 1725.  The latter parts were completed after Campbell's death by John Woolfe and James Gandon, noted architects who felt the importance of continuing Campbell's project."Arader Galleries intends to have the lowest prices on ABE, Alibris, Biblio, AE, and Artnet while maintaining the highest levels of quality in the business for every offering.

        Essai-boek of uitgereekende tafelen van alle gehaltens in 't goudt en zilver gereduceert uit marken bruto, in marken fyn. Beneffens de uitreekening van de waardy van 't zelve, in guldens, stuivers en myten, volgens de koers en order in de respective munten van Nederland gebruikelyk: zeer dienstig allen kooplieden, munt meesters en anderen in 't goudt en zilver handelende. Alles naaukeurig gereekent, . als nooit in eenig boek van diergelyke stoffe. Amsterdam, printed for the author and sold by Hendrik van Eyl, [ca. 1716]. 4to. With 447 pages of tables. With 4 manuscript leaves of tables added by a contemporary owner. Contemporary vellum.

      - STCN (5 copies); not in Hoover; Kress. Practical guide to the calculation of the value of gold and silver of any purity, intended for merchants, mint masters and others who deal with precious metals. The author notes that there is "now" a great deal of low grade gold and silver on the market (below 20 carat and 10 penningen respectively, i.e. below 83 1/3 %), and that previously published guides did not cover these in a convenient manner. He therefore first explains how these metals are weighed in the Netherlands, presenting the units of weight and their relations, and gives instructions for using the tables, with examples. Once one has weighed the gold or silver and assayed it to give the purity in carats/mark or penningen/mark respectively, the tables on pp. 1-223 and 225-395 tell the weight of fine metal in a given weight of impure metal. Once one knows the weight of fine gold or silver, one can look up its value in guilders in the tables on pp. 224 and 396-447. Grill was himself an assayer. In 1715 he published his tables for gold alone, also sold by Van Eyl, and the present tables for gold and silver probably followed soon after. The heaviest weight listed for both gold and silver is 100 marks (so that the tables could be used without multiplication for weights up to 200 marks), but for silver in four degrees of purity, a contemporary owner has inserted manuscript tables for weights up to4000 marks.In very good condition. A rare and valuable window into trade in precious metals in the early 18th-century Netherlands.

        Top Portion of a Document Signed by him on the verso, (Sir Robert, 1st Earl of Orford, 1676-1745, 1st British Prime Minister)

      1715 - under a manuscript transfer note, saying "I Doe hereby assigne & transfer all my Right, title & Interest in the within order & the Tally thereto belonging with Interest due and to grow due thereupon unto the Governor and Company of the Bank of England .", with a note below, "Reg[iste]red J Hay", the printed text on the recto is the beginning of an Order in virtue of the main annual tax Act, first passed in 1711, for duty on many goods and renewed annually, this time "Malt, Mum, Cyder and Perry, for the Service of the Year One thousand Seven hundred and fifteen and for making forth Duplicates of Exchequer Bills and Lottery Tickers, lost, burnt or destroy'd .", 1 side oblong 8vo., Pay Office, Horse Guards, 30th September The cost of Queen Anne's wars greatly exceeded the revenue, and government payments were commonly in arrears. An Act was passed to allow its IOUs to be exchanged for South Sea Company stock, which had a cash value because it could be traded. (The bookseller Thomas Guy made his fortune in this way, beginning with a seaman newly ashore, who asked him to discount his wages note, which Guy so exchanged). In the tax act, a clause was inserted which allowed public paymasters and treasurers to raise cash loans from willing individuals against the stock as security, at interest up to 6%, provided the cash was used for the same public purpose. In 1714, a further clause authorized the Bank of England to be such a lender. The present document is one of Robert Walpole's last actions as Paymaster of the Forces (from 3rd October 1714), before he became Prime Minister in October 1715. The document has his name already printed in the margin, as he would wish to make many transfers of this kind. Ironically, as Treasurer of the Navy, January 1710 - January 1711, Walpole had been sent to the Tower "for notorious corruption" and expelled the Commons. Perhaps here he is trying to clear his desk! Walpole's signature is striking, with a flat base to the R and the last stroke of the R becoming the first of the W.

        Reflexion sur la premotion physique

      Originale.Pleine Edition Sheepskin contemporary. Spine ribbed decorated with semi stars in the boxes. Part of title in red morocco. Caps frayed, split bits in head and tail. Coins émoussés.C'est the last work of the philosopher Cartesian Nicolas Malebranche (1638-1715), which was written in response to free Laurent Boursier, From God's action on the creatures. Fellow says theses Malebranche (in search of the truth) lead to the Thomist theory of the determination of our actions. Malebranche said that our actions are free, God can not be determined. Malebranche defines the very first page of physical premotion: 'A physical standby, before the determination of the will, and makes it freely determined, and with indifference.' This is a work of importance on Free Will and physical determination of the Will. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

A fine unsophisticated copy in original binding. ----Bolton I, p.847; Duveen, p.559-60; DSB XII, p.604-5. RARE FIRST EDITION. This work includes the 'Zymotechnia Fundamentalis,' (first published 1697) in which is to be found the first statement of the phlogiston theory and also Stahl's theory of fermentation. (Duveen). "Stahl was the originator of the phlogiston theory, which dominated chemistry until the end of the 18th century. Stahl took the structure of his theory from Becher, who had stated air, water and earth to be the three elementary principles with water and earth the basis of all material things, and who had further subdivided the principle of earth into the three principles of substantiality, combustibility and weight/ductility/volatility. Stahl elaborated from Becher's 'second earth' a new chemical principle, phlogiston, a substance representing the principle of combustibility that combined with other chemical substances to form compounds. Experimental evidence for the existence of phlogiston came largely from metals and minerals, particularly from the reversible relationship of metals and their calces: when a metal was heated intensely, its phlogiston was driven off and a calx appeared, but when phlogiston was reintroduced to the calx (by heating it with carbon, oil, pitch or other phlogiston-rich materials), the metal reappeared. Air did not combine with phlogiston but received it when it was liberated during combustion; air could absorb only a limited amount of phlogiston, and when that limit was reached, combustion could not longer take place. The flaws in the phlogiston theory are obvious, and it did not survive the 18th century; however, it served as an important link between the older chemical concepts and the new, an attempt to modify the existing intellectual framework in order to account for new experimental observations" (Norman 2005). Very Good.

A handsome copy, clean and sound, with several abrasions to boards, marginal toning to some leaves, occasional spots and soiling, inoffensive ink blot to p. 195 obscuring four or five letters but not affecting sense. ESTC Citation N22063. McBurney 79. Lowndes 325 (calling it a satire on Sir Robert Walpole, ascribed to Thomas Duffet). ¶ Wicked satire on statesman Robert Harley, Earl of Oxford (political power-broker and patron of Jonathan Swift, Alexander Pope, and Daniel Defoe), taking its title from Swift's celebrated Tale of a Tub (but not recorded by Teerink-Scouten in the list of spurious sequels to Swift's work). Probably written with the collaboration of George Duckett, it casts an account of Harley's life as an allegory of a Machiavellian scoundrel who betrays family and friends in his rise to power and practice of ruthless state craft. The vehicle for this allegory is Martin Powell (fl. 1709-29), the physically deformed showman who ran a celebrated puppet-show in Covent Garden (as shown in the frontispiece). The Tale portrays Harley as a puppet-master manipulating Swift and other hack writers in the service of the Tory faction. Though not a novel, per se, Second Tale of a Tub is seen by some as an important link between Swift's antecedent and Laurence Sterne's Tristram Shandy (Eugene Korkowskia, Studies in the Novel, Vol. 6, No. 4, pp. 470-474).

Inscribed on leading free e.p.: 'Presented by Dr. W.J. Turrell'.ESTC T53262. This second edition has a new 2pp 'Advertisement' mentioning the challenge made by Radcliffe's servant to the 'genuineness' of some of the letters printed, adding several new letters and thanking two friends who 'have taken upon them the trouble of revising and correcting the work'. A relatively common book with four copies recorded in Oxford, but this copy clearly escaped the city at some point and the Health Care Libraries at the Bodleian can find 'no trace' of this copy having been in their ownership. Walter John Turrell (1865-1943) was the first physiotherapist at the Radcliffe Infirmary, founded by the subject of this biography.
