        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.

From the library of bibliophile Hugh Selbourne, M.D. (1906-1973), with his discreet ownership stamp on two pages. (In an appreciation of Shelbourne's diaries, Hilary Mantle noted in The Guardian: "His passion is for antiquarian books, and he owns them by the yard; we are not talking about first editions of Dickens, but first editions of Erasmus, 'printed Basle, 1517'. His regular beat takes him to his private consulting rooms at St John Street in the centre of Manchester, then to Shaw's, the book dealer . . .".) 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). N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        Nouveau voyage autour du Monde, où l'on décrit en particulier l'Isthme de l'Amerique, plusieurs Côtes et Isles des Indes Occidentales...

      Rouen: Robert Machuel le jeune & Eustache Herault, 1715. Five volumes, duodecimo, with a total of 34 engraved maps, coastal profiles and harbour plans (12 folding) and 32 plates (13 folding) including engraved title pages and frontispiece for volume I-III; contemporary French mottled calf, banded spines richly gilt, crimson morocco labels, from the Villeneuve library with engraved bookplates to all volumes. Rare: an attractive set of the first collected edition of Dampier in any language to include the related accounts of Cowley, Sharp and Wood. Most of the maps, coastal profiles, and natural history plates are accurate copies of the English originals, but this edition is notable for the addition of a small series of newly engraved views (perhaps based on the Dutch edition Nieuwe reystogt rondom de werreld, published between 1698 and 1704).Dampier's 'style is clear and simple, making his writings almost classical. A precursor of the Enlightenment, he was not interested in marvels, but in examination and description of natural phenomena. Through his writings, Dampier made known the profitable possibilities in the Pacific' (Hill, describing the collected English edition). It is interesting that it was not until 1729, some fourteen years after the present edition, that the London publishers Knapton prepared their famous four-volume edition of the collected Dampier, which also included the accounts of Cowley, Sharp and Wood.Borba de Moraes noted that part of the edition was printed by Robert Machuel and part by Eustache Herault. Two of the title-pages a little chipped at one corner.

        Nova et tuta variolas excitandi per transplantationem methodus; nuper inventa & in usum tracta: qua rite peracta, immunia in posterum praeservantur ab huiusmodi contagio corpora.

      Venice, Giovanni Gabriele Hertz, 1715 - 8vo (142 x 92 mm), pp 33 [3, blank], with woodcut device on title; a fine, unpressed copy, outer edges uncut, in marbled wrappers, in a morocco-backed box.First edition of the exceptionally rare foundation work in immunology, the first book in Europe not only to describe the inoculation process but to base it on empirical evidence. 'Pilarino in 1701 inoculated three children at Constantinople with smallpox virus. He is accredited with the "medical" discovery of variolation, and thus is the first immunologist. His book records his many researches on the subject' (Garrison-Morton). The full title of this work translated as 'New and safe method to stimulate smallpox by inoculation, recently invented and put into practice and performed routinely, by which bodies acquire immunity against this infection in later years'.'In the eighteenth century another even more important event took place for the future immunology. The variolation, that is, the first immunizing method, was introduced in Europe. . 'Western European medicine first considered variolation as a vulgar and useless way of preventing smallpox. But the Venetian physician Jacobo Pylarino (1659-1718), who travelled in different parts of Asia and Africa, learned the technique. In 1701 he settled in Constantinople and there, for the first time in Europe, inoculated with smallpox virus the three children of a friend. Afterwards, he devoted himself for studying the method and published in 1715 in the Latin language a book entitled Nova, et tuta variolas excitandi per transplantationem methodus; nuper inventa et in usum tracta: qua rite peracta, immunia in posterum preservantur ab hujusmodi contagio corpora. As we can see, the title includes the term immunia (referred here to corpora, i.e., "a method by which the bodies become immune to contagion"), so Pylarino recovered in his book the antique word and revived it for the future. A summary of the book was translated into English and presented to the Royal Society .'It is remarkable, however, that the recovery of the term immunity (passive exemption) in this period was due to a relatively modern physician such as Pylarino at a time when he was presenting an active method to protect against a disease, too far distant from a magical idea of causation. Perhaps it occurred through respect for tradition or perhaps there is another explanation. It's possible that the reappearance of the term "immunity" around this time was accompanied, as the Spanish philologist E. Pingarrón recently suggested, by a cross between the terms imm nitat e imm nire, the latter phrase being a classic Latin military term meaning "to defend from inside". It is possible that Pylarino, literate in Latin, kept this in mind when using the old term and that this combined in the new and future uses of imm nitas' (Juan Manuel Igea, 'From the Old Immunitas to the Modern Immunity', Current immunology Reviews vol 11 n 1 (2015) p 59).Pilarino's work was preceded by a letter sent to the Royal Society by Emanuel Timone at Constantinope; it prompted an investigation by the secretary Richard Waller, who contacted the botanist Dr William Sherard, then serving as British Consul in Smyrna. Sherard in turn consulted his friend Pilarino, who provided him with details of the Ottoman inoculation technique, its safety, and of his own successful experimentation with inoculation. Sherard later sent a copy of Pilarino's book, which is dedicated to Sherard, to the Royal Society, where a summary was published, along with excerpts from Timone's letter on inoculation in the Philosophical transactions (v 29, pp 393-9, 1716).'Following the publication of Timone's account, and of a small volume on the same theme by Pylarino in 1715, knowledge of the method slowly spread throughout Europe and the newly established colonies on the other side of the Atlantic. In spite of the helpful publicity engineered by various factions of scoiety led by Lady Mary Wortley Montague, Voltaire, and the Princess of

        Shinpan E-iri SEKEN MUSUKO KATAGI

      1715 - [UKIYOZO^SHI] Ejima Kiseki, author. Shinpan E-iri SEKEN MUSUKO KATAGI. Kyo^to, Preface dated Sho^toku 5 [1715], 24.9 x 17.6 cm., stirng-bound, Japanese-style, fukuro-toji. Ejimaya. With a notice of the impending publication of the sequel SEKEN MUSUME KATAGI, so a very early printing, indeed, a fact born out by its printing quality. The SEKEN MUSUKO KATAGI (Tales of Worldly Youth) began a new genre of seriocomic fiction invented by Kiseki, generally considered the literary heir of Ihara Saikaku. As the 18th century wore on the classes and catagories of townfolk whose worldly attitudes were skewered expanded to include everyone from parents to priests. The genre concluded some 70 years later when the heights of absurdity were reached with SEKEN BAKEMONO KATAGI (Tales of Worldly Ghosts) and katagi-mono finally passed on. A very scarce and very important work. The illustrations are apt, skillfully done in a clever ukiyo-e style, depicting the typical townfolk of early 18th century Japan. Nishikawa Sukenobu illustrated most of Kiseki's work and his popularity guaranteed he was much copied by other artists. It is not clear as to whether he illustrated this classic as he is not credited for it but the work resembles early Sukenobu strongly. Overall this copy is in good impression and very good condition, with the original covers and title labels. Complete in a clasped chitsu case.

        Diderot]. BOUDOT (Jean). [Dictionarium universale latino-Gallicum ex omnibus latinitatis autoribus summa diligentia collectum, cum variis multarum quae vulgo synonimae videntur latinarum vocum differentii].

      Jean Boudot, Paris 1715 - In-8 de (6)-956 pp., restes de cartonnage de l'époque, sous étui moderne. Précieux dictionnaire dans lequel le jeune Denis Diderot étudia le latin. Deuxième enfant de Didier Diderot et de Angélique Vigneron, Denis naquit le 5 octobre 1713, dernier né d'une dynastie de couteliers. C'est en novembre 1723 qu'il entre dans la plus petite classe du collège des jésuites de Langres qui détenait le monopole de l'éducation secondaire ; une remarquable formation en lettres classiques était associée à un très grand souci des pratiques catholiques, de telle sorte que du point de vue de l'Eglise, les connaissances humanistes ne pouvaient tomber dans l'ornière profane. « Devant ses livres, Diderot fut certainement un élève vif et doué (.) Ses succès de jeunesse sont attestés par des documents qui existent toujours, le musée de l'hôtel du Breuil (.) possède deux volumes in-quarto de quelques six cents pages chacun, une histoire de l'église catholique au Japon du R.P. Grasset, qui sont des livres de prix de Diderot. Ces ouvrages édifiants (.) portent sur leurs pages de garde la mention que Denis Diderot, jeune homme recommandable à divers titres (adulescens multiplici nomine commendandus), les avait reçus le 3 août 1728 pour le second prix de vers latins et le second prix de version » (Arthur M. Wilson). Signature autographe de Diderot répétée à la fin de l'épitre dédiactoire. Une note page 766 nous renseigne sur l'âge du jeune Diderot : « Monsieur . le Coutelier faite à langres le 28 juillet 1727 ». Note sur la page de garde : « Ce dictionnaire qui m'appartient depuis 1826 où je l'ai acquis du fils Jaugey de Langres, a appartenu d'abord au XVIIIe siècle à Diderot, comme on le voit à la fin de l'épitre dédicatoire.

Cet Ouvrage contient le plan d'une république dont les Lois, les Usages, & les Coutumes tendent uniquement à faire faire aux Societez Humaines le passage de la Vie dans toute la douceur imaginable. République, qui deviendra infalliblement réelle, des que lès Mortels se conduiront par la Raison. Traduite nouvellement en François Par Mr. Gueudeville, & ornée de tres belles figures. Duodecimo (160 x 95 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, red morocco label, raised bands, decoration to compartments with central flower tool gilt, triple gilt rules to sides, marbled endpapers, all edges red. Extra engraved title and 16 engraved plates counted in, woodcut title device, woodcut head- and tailpieces. Bound without the blank leaves 6*12 and 7*4; some misbinding in the final gathering of the text; with two publisher's catalogues bound in at the end, one apparently lacking a leaf. Spine worn at head exposing headband, still an excellent copy. First edition of Nicolas Gueudeville's translation of Utopia, one of the very few copies with a cancel title printed entirely in black, unseen by Gibson. This copy also contains the often removed plate on K4 verso by Bleyswick, which depicts future spouses in a state of undress as they inspect each other before marriage. Nicolas Gueudeville (1652?1721) was an unfrocked Benedictine monk turned author, journalist, translator, and historian, a precursor of Rousseau's socialist ideas who is sometimes referred to as the "unknown soldier of Enlightenment". A large part of his writing (published anonymously) consists of unbridled criticism of absolute monarchy and Catholicism. Utopia was his second translation, his first having been of the Moriae encomium of Erasmus. According to Gueudeville, More had succeeded in identifying the true causes of human misery: "la Propriété, l'Avarice, l'Ambition, ces trois pestes de la Société Civile, ces trois monstres qui ravagent le Genre Humain, ne se trouvent point en Utopie" (translator's preface, p. **2). More's great satire was first published in Latin in 1516; its first French translation appeared in 1550.

        THE CASE OF THE FARMERS AND MALTSTERS, UPON THE SHORTNESS OF TIME ALLOW'D FOR THE PAYMENT OF THE DUTY ON MALT [caption title]

      [London, 1715. Small folio broadsheet. [1]p. plus printed docket title on verso. Dbd. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Mild foxing. Very good. A rare leaflet lobbying Parliament on behalf of English barley farmers and maltsters. The document explains that the three months allowed to maltsters for paying duties on their malts after the malts have been made is excessively short, harming both their business and that of the farmers from whom they buy barley. The petitioners ask for six months to be granted instead of three and only to those maltsters who can give "reasonable Security for Payment of the said Duty." An interesting piece of British breweriana and an early example of commercial lobbying literature, which first began proliferating in the lobby of the House of Commons at the time of the accession of King George I and the British general election of 1715. ESTC lists only two copies, at Harvard and the University of London. GOLDSMITHS 5228. HANSON 2166.
