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.)

Die "Summa de casibus poenitentialibus", das Hauptwerk des großen katalonischen Kirchenrechtsgelehrten. "Im 1. Buch seiner Beichtsumme behandelt er die Sünden gegen Gott, im 2. die Sünden gegen den Menschen, und im 3. handelt er über die Rechtsverhältnisse der Geistlichen sowie über die zu verhängenden Bußen und Strafen. An diese drei ursprünglichen Bücher fügte Raimund wohl auf fremden Wunsch hin als 4. Buch die von seinem Zeitgenossen, dem Kirchenrechtsgelehrten Tankred von Bologna verfaßte populäre "Summa de matrimonio" an [...] Waren die Pönitenzen seiner Vorgänger kaum mehr als Sünden- und korrespondierende Strafenregister, so eröffnete Raimund mit seiner Beichtsumme den Beichtvätern einen leichteren und zugleich umfassenderen Zugang zu den erforderlichen bußrechtlichen Voraussetzungen [...] Die Beichtsumme Raimunds vermochte es nicht nur, das Bußwesen des Hochmittelalters tiefgreifend zu beeinflussen, sie ermöglichte zugleich den gänzlichen Verzicht auf die älteren Bußbücher" (Bautz, BBKL VII, 1281ff.). - Einband etwas berieben; oberes Kapital defekt. Innen twas gebräunt bzw. braunfleckig. Breitrandiges Exemplar aus der Bibliothek der Wiener Unbeschuhten Augustiner mit hs. Besitzvermerk am Titel (dat. 1741); entspr. hs.

Allestree, Richard.
Pr. by J. Leake for E. Pawlet. One of the great High Church devotional works, generally attributed to Allestree although its first appearance in 1658 was anonymous. The volume opens with a copperplate engraving of Moses with a tablet (and horns) signed by Michael van der Gucht, and with an additional engraved title-page with cherubim. The "Private Devotions for Several Occasions, Ordinary and Extraordinary" has a separate title-page, with continuous pagination.

Back pastedown with inked inscription: "A Gift Sent from Oxford Martch ye 6th 1715 from Mr. John Brigdol to Mrs. Sidney Roberts / Receaved ye 17th of ye Same Instant. And he dyed ye 10th." Another hand, seemingly Wynne's, has added "of Ruthin" after Roberts's name and "March 1715-16" following the date of death.

Gregorio Leti; Catholic Church
1715 Life of Charles V Holy Roman Empire Military Battles Wars Portraits 4v SET A work on the life of Holy Roman Emperor Charles V by Gregorio Leti. Gregorio Leti (1630–1701) was an Italian historian and satirist from Milan, who sometimes published under the pseudonym Abbe Gualdi, known for his works about the Catholic Church, especially the papacy. Charles V (1500 – 1558), was a Duke of Burgundy and Holy Roman Emperor. He was ruler of both the Spanish Empire from 1516 and Holy Roman Empire from 1519, as well as of Habsburg Netherlands from 1506, until he voluntarily stepped down from these and other positions by a series of abdications between 1554 and 1556.

Van Der Aa, Pierre
Leiden: Van der Aa, Pierre. unbound. Map. c.1715. Copper plate engraving. Image measures 8 3/4 x 11 1/2.This decorative circa 1715 map of the Guiana coast includes the Lesser Antilles. Beautifully detailed, the map notes towns, rivers and mountains in the region and depicts the colony established by Charles Leigh in the early 17th century. The map identifies the legendary Lake Parima and the fabled Kingdom of El Dorado or city of Manoa along its western banks. Following Sir Walter Raleigh's publication of "The Discoverie of the Large, Rich, and Bewtiful Empyre of Guiana" in 1595, European interest in the regain grew considerably in the 17th century and various explorers set out in search of gold in Guiana. Among these was Charles Leigh, who set sail in 1604 aboard the "Olive Plat". The locals, oppressed by the Carib people, helped build a colony for the Englishmen in hopes that they would settle there. Leigh went on to explore the region for gold, only to find none. Upon his return to the colony, he found almost every man sick and soon after fell ill himself and died aboard his ship, attempting to return home. A beautifully illustrated title cartouche features scenes of what looks like men lowering a coffin in a large hole with a ship in the background. The map is in good condition, surrounded by decorative border. Map has been trimmed around the border, possibly for framing purposes. Pieter van der Aa (1659-1733) was a Dutch publisher, editor and bookseller based in Leiden, Netherlands. He started his own publishing and auction house at the age of 21 and went on to pro … [Click Below for Full Description]

Martial
typis Gul. Bowyer, impensis Gul. Innys, Londini [London] 1715 - 12mo, pp. [xlviii], 311, [5], 20. First leaf blank apart from engraved coat of arms of Eton College on verso. Later sprinkled calf, boards bordered with a double gilt rule, spine richly gilt in compartments (this gilding possibly later), black morocco label. A little spotting, a few leaves with a tiny chip from top margin. Extremities a touch worn, front joint cracked but strong, small chip from head of spine. Bookplate of the Earls of Lovelace and shelfmark stamp of their library at Ben Damph Forest to front endpapers. A scarce edition of classical and neo-classical Latin epigrams, mostly selections from Martial but also including poems by Catullus, Ausonius, Virgil, and Seneca (plus a few translations from the Greek Anthology) and a handful from 'modern' authors such as Beza, Buchanan, and Grotius. UK printings under this title go back to the 1680s, with examples designated 'for the use of Eton scholars' from 1686. This, calling itself the 8th edition, is like the others a scarce thing, despite having been printed in an edition of 2,000 copies: ESTC records copies in just 11 locations, though Eton has three and Cambridge two - and just one in the USA, at Harvard.

[1715]. Curved pottery shard, approximately 5.75” high, 4” wide,0.25” thick, recovered from a sunken Spanish Galleon in the treasure fleet of 1715, four days after leaving Havana for Spain.From 1561-1748, the Spanish government sent two merchant convoys each year, with few exceptions, to the New World. One went to Mexico, the other to Panama. They brought European goods to the colonists and returned with gold and silver coins, gem stones, and other valuables. These convoys became known as treasure fleets.Two fleets filled with treasures left Cubafor Spain on July 27, 1715. On July 31, 1715, a hurricane drove the fleets into the reefs along the east coast of Florida. The entire fleet of 11 ships and nearly half of the 2500 crew members were lost. Some of the ships’ cargo was salvaged by the Spanish government, but most of it remained on the ocean floor.From the Certificate of Authenticity,11” x 8.5”, signed in facsimile by Mel Fisher, President of Cobb Coin Company Inc., Eugene Lyon, Historian, and R.

Lon., 1715. x. 178 pp. b/w engraved frontispiece. "For the government and encrease of the navigation of England, and the relief of poor mariners, their widdows and orphans, &c."

It is still the managing authority for lighthouses, the licensing body for deep sea pilots, and a charitable organization for the welfare of mariners and maritime safety. Second edition of a text first published in 1685. A&W 3589A. A very nice copy bound in antique style half mottled calf over marbled boards.
