Innsbruck, Jacob Christoph Wagner, 1715.. Titel mit Holzschnittbordüre. 34 nicht num. Bll. und 30 Kupfertafeln. Etwas späterer marmorierter Halbpergamentband. Folio.. Erste und einzige Ausgabe. In höchst eigenartigen Schabkunstblättern vorgestellt werden die 28 das Grabmal Kaiser Maximiliams in der Innsbrucker Hofkirche bewachenden überlebensgroßen Bronzefiguren. Nach diesem noch von Kaiser Maximilian selbst in Auftrag gegebenen, aber erst 1584 vollendeten Skulpturenprogramm wird die am Rande der Altstadt gelegene Grabeskirche bis heute auch als "Schwarzmanderkirche" bezeichnet. Jeder der 28 Tafeln ist jeweils eine ganzseitige Beschreibung der abgebildeten Person (darunter Mitglieder der Familie des Kaisers, anderer europäischer Fürstenhäuser sowie einige Kreuzfahrer) gegenübergestellt, die deren Bedeutung und Biographie sowohl in deutscher als auch lateinischer Sprache erläutert. Die letzte Tafel zeigt schließlich das Grabmal der Philippina, der 1580 verstorbenen Gemahlin des Erzherzogs Ferdinand von Tirol; daran angeschlossen ist noch eine - wiederum zweisprachige - Beschreibung der "23 kleinere[n] Bilder, welche in der Höhe an dem Rucken deß Chors stehen". - Kleiner Eckausriß am Titel (ohne Textberührung) alt hinterlegt, sonst tadelloses, sauberes Exemplar. Sehr selten, nur zwei Exemplare auf deutschen Nachkriegsauktionen (1953 bzw. 1987, jeweils stark beschädigt). Kein Nachweis über ABPC oder im Handel der letzten Jahrzehnte. Nicht im OCLC. - Vgl. hierzu auch Kat.-Nr. 42 (Jezl). - Wurzbach XVIII, 312. Thieme/Becker XXIV, 557.

Colin Campbell
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 Comm … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Malt]:
[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.

TORRICELLI, Evangelista.
In Firenze [Florence]: Nella Stamp. di S.A.R. per Jacopo Guiducci, e Santi Franchi, 1715. FIRST EDITION. Torricelli (1608-1647), Galileo’s most promising pupil, succeeded him as professor of mathematics at Florence. The present volume, published nearly seventy years after his death, contains the lectures he gave to the Accademia Crusca, and on other occasions. They deal with problems of mechanics, physics, meteorology, and military architecture, including also an oration in praise of mathematics. From the point of view of physics, the lectures on the force of impact and on wind are of particular interest. In the former he said that he was reporting ideas expressed by Galileo in their informal conversations, and there is no lack of original observations. In the lecture on wind Torricelli advanced the modern theory that winds are products of differences of air temperature (cf. Wolf, History of Science, I, p. 316). The 50-page introduction by the editor, Tommaso Bonaventura, is important for Torricelli's life and works. It includes the two letters by Torricelli to Michelangelo Ricci of June 11th and 28th 1644, in which he described his invention of the mercury barometer, one of the most important discoveries in the whole history of physics, with a woodcut showing Torricelli's barometer.

Blackburne, Robert, et al]:
[London? ca. ]. 1715 - Broadsheet, 14 x 8 1/2 inches. [2]pp. With ornamental initial on recto and and printed docket title on verso. Dbd. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Small portion of inner margin excised, with no loss to text. Mild foxing. Very good. A petition to Parliament to review the case of Robert Blackburne and others connected to the so-called "Lancashire Plot" who were imprisoned in London without charges, trial, or opportunity for habeas corpus. Robert Blackburne (d. 1748), a scion of prominent Roman Catholic families in Lancashire, and his companions were arrested in 1695 on suspicion of connection to an assassination plot against William III and held at Newgate prison, where "no person but our Jaylor and his Servants were permitted to speak with us. We were denied the Use of Pen, Ink, and Paper, debarred of all Comforts and Conveniences, and under great Hardships as to the very Necessaries of Life; out Confinement being so strict, that even our Food and Linnen were searched, to prevent the least Communication." When after many years of being held without trial they finally managed to enter a request for habeas corpus, their petition was denied because they had not claimed it during the first parliamentary session after their imprisonment. This, they note, had been impossible to do, as they had had no access to pen, paper, or friends beyond the prison walls. Around 1715, following the accession of King George I and the election of a new Whig Parliament, the prisoners learned of a new bill in Parliament which they hoped would at last secure th … [Click Below for Full Description]

In 354 large engraved plates it depicts cities and notable castles, sometimes rather more magnificient than their actual appearance.Erik Dahlberg (1625-1703), who had been inspired by Matthaeus Merian the younger's 'Theatrum Europaeum' and famous Topographies during his military service in Germany, begun the project in the 1660s. It was not completed until 1715, and the planned text was never issued at all.The earliest 98 plates were engraved in Paris from Dahlberg's drawings by Adam Perelle, Jean Marot, Jean Le Pautre and Nicolas Perelle. Many delays ensued, and the following. Jakobsdal är beläget vid Edsviken i Uppland och var uppkallat efter dess ägare, fältherren Jakob de la Gardie.

[CALVERT, Charles Lord Baltimore]
[London, 1715. Broadsheet. [1]p. plus printed docket title on verso. Small folio. Antique style half calf and marbled boards. Some very minor foxing, else near fine. Maryland restored to the Lords Baltimore In 1689, following the Glorious Revolution, the royal charter to Maryland was withdrawn from the Roman Catholic Charles Calvert, 3rd Baron Baltimore, who had inherited the colony from his father, Cecil Calvert, Maryland's first proprietary governor, in 1675. While Maryland was in direct possession of the Crown, Charles's son Benedict Leonard Calvert renounced Catholicism and joined the Church of England in the hopes of having the family's title to Maryland restored. At the death of his father in February 1715, Benedict Leonard was named 4th Baron Baltimore and immediately petitioned George I for return of colony. Before the King could rule on the matter, however, Baltimore suddenly died in April, and his title passed to his sixteen year-old son, Charles, to whom Maryland was restored that year. The present petition to Parliament states that Cecil Calvert had exhausted much of the family's estate in his cultivation and improvement of Maryland and that the new Lord Baltimore has thus been left without funds to provide for his five siblings. His advocates request that Maryland may therefore be exempt from a new £3000 per year colonial tax. As the tax was intended in part to fund protection to the colonists from Indians, the petition further notes that few Indians remained in Maryland and could be easily overpowered by the white inhabitants.
