        Epicteti Enchiridion

      London - W Bowyer, 1716 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An English translation of the teachings of Epictetus. Epictetus was a Greek-speaking Stoic philosopher.

The work begins with a poem in praise of Epictetus before going on to his enchiridion. His enchiridion is a manual of advice. From the antiquarian library of Christopher Rowe. Christopher Rowe was a schoolmaster in Norwich and then in Bristol. Throughout his career he inspired many to love literature, history and music. He was a specialist on 17th century printer and bookseller, Humphrey Moseley and began his, unfortunately unfinished, PhD dissertation on him. With an engraved frontispiece. Collated, complete. Condition: In a full calf binding. Rebacked with original boards preserved. Externally, generally smart with patches of rubbing to boards and extremities. Prior owner's bookplate to front pastedown.

        Trivia: or the Art of Walking the Streets of London [Large-Paper Copy]

      London printed for Bernard Lintott, at the Cross-Keys between the Temple-Gates in Fleetstreet [1716] First Issue, large-paper copy (engraved headpiece on p. 1 depicts a street scene, not a phoenix, with elaborate engraved ornaments, not printer's ornaments, on pp. 21 and 53.) of John Gay's mock imitation of Virgil's Georgics. 8vo: [4],80,[12]pp. Full maroon morocco by Riviere, spine in six compartments divided by raised bands and lettered in gilt, renewed marbled end papers, plain paper fly leaves, all edges gilt. Lintott printed 2000 ordinary copies and a further 250 on fine paper, of which our copy is one. A Dublin edition and three other London editions appeared the same year. Fine. Hayward 142. Foxon G82 (fine-paper). Ashley II, p. 135. Rothschild 914 (the statement in Haywood, that "there are two leaves, G7 and G8, blank and genuine, is incorrect"). Bowyer Ledgers 281. Faber, p. 57. Dearing (ed), John Gay. Poetry and Prose 546. Fine ¶ Trivia (after the goddess of streets, not the modern meaning, of trifles or unimportant matters) takes Virgil's Georgics as an ironic model for a mock account of outdoor life in London to satirise the noise, stench and danger of contemporary life on its streets. "Though there had been imitations of Virgil's didactics, there had been nothing of the scope, nor any that had hit upon the real idea, of Trivia: to imitate in mock, not just one or another of Virgil's prescriptions, but the entire work." (Dearing). "Gay's satiric thrust is aimed both at idle aristocratic Londoners of the day, at one extreme of the class system, and at loud and aggressive labourers at the other. The playful irony that runs through the poem is intended to appeal to educated readers, who would appreciate the poet's witty allusions to the classics. Gay treats London's streets as a mock parallel to Virgil's farm in the Mantuan countryside, contrasting the contemporary foot-traveller in London, struggling against his surroundings, with Virgil's rural farmer in full accord with his."

        Histoire de la decouverte et de la conquete du Perou. Traduite de l'Espagnol...par S.D.C.

      La compagnie des libraires, 1716. Early French printing of this very successful Peruvian history, which went through numerous editions in languages including Spanish, Italian, Dutch, German, and English. Zárate arrived in Peru as part of the retinue of the first viceroy, and served there from 1543 until 1548. His work was first printed in its original Spanish in 1555, but did not appear in French until 1700; the present translation was done by S. de Broë, Seigneur de Citry et de la Guette. The first volume is illustrated with an oversized folding map and fourteen engraved plates, including the well known depiction of a nattily dressed European gentleman, reclining on a raft-like cushion, borne across a stream by two Indians. Married set: The two contemporary bindings are similar but not identical; both are of mottled leather, one more coarsely grained (and acid-etched) than the other, while one has floral and the other pomegranate motifs gilt-stamped in spine compartments. The match was made by a previous, Spanish-speaking collector, who has left pencilled notes in Spanish in both volumes.

        Comitatus principalis Tirolis in quo Episc. Tridentino et Brixensis.

      Homann Johann Baptist, Norimberga, 1716. Incisione su rame di dimensioni 47x56 cm. Buono, ordinari segni d'uso e del tempo. Carta raffigurante il territorio tirolese contenuta in "Grosser Atlas über die ganze Welt" dell'incisore ed editore Johann Baptist Homann (1663-1724). L'impianto rimane quello maginiano, da cui derivano le consuete inesattezze (una valle inesistente riportata a nord della Val di Non e un lago immaginario in Valsugana). Interessante, in basso a destra, l'elaborata composizione che accompagna il titolo: in essa in primo piano tre figure in costume d'epoca (un cacciatore, un minatore e un vendemmiatore), sullo sfondo una veduta di Covelo che si rifà probabilmente a quella realizzata da Bodenehr negli stessi anni. Scheda bibliografica tratta da "Il territorio trentino-tirolese nell'antica cartografia" di Gino Tomasi, scheda n. 54.

[Et] 16-96 pages, 20 planches repliées, demi-veau blond moderne, dos l'imitation, à faux nerfs et fleuronné, pièce de titre rouge, Édition originale, rare, de cet ouvrage important du constructeur d'instruments Johann Gottlieb Hertel (1683-1743), sur le meulage et le polissage des lentilles et sur les instruments optiques. Il contient la description de nombreux microscopes, dont celui de sa conception ; l'objet était muni de plusieurs nouvelles fonctions, dont un micromètre, un miroir plan et, ce qui en fit la renommée, une platine à chariot (mechanical stage). Il est reproduit sur une grande planche gravée par Winckler d'après Hertel (pl. 18) : la platine à chariot permettait une plus grande précision dans la mise au point, en évitant le tremblement de la main et le déplacement mal aisé du tube volumineux du microscope. Il suffisait désormais d'ajuster les différents degrés à l'aide de trois clefs sur l'avant de la boîte, permettant l'élévation de la platine et sa rotation sur son propre axe. Seuls un ou deux exemplaires du microscope de Hertel ont été conservés. Harald Moe, Story of the Microscope, pp. 33 et suiv. À la suite : troisième édition des Nouvelles remarques (Neue Anmerckungen) de Leutmann, comprenant des corrections inédites. Ce livre rare, publié pour la première fois en 1719, rend compte des améliorations techniques dans meulage de lentilles destinées aux instruments optiques, microscopes, camera obscura et micromètres : il décrit également plusieurs objets de sa propre conception et fait part de théories diverses sur la vision et la perspective. Johann Georg Leutmann (1667-1736) fut professeur de mécanique et d'optique à l'Académie de Saint-Pétersbourg. Textes en caractères gothiques, titres en rouge et noir. Étiquette ex-libris du fabricant d'instrument optiques Albert Nachet. Oxydation habituelle pour les papiers allemands de l'époque. Une tache d'encre ancienne en pied d'un feuillet. Reliure modeste.

Popular garden book (and probably the most influential book in the history of pomology) by the leading French gardener of the seventeenth century. For more than 20 years, beginning in 1665, La Quintinie worked as gardener to Louis XIV, rising steadily with ever-expanding titles. The potager at Versailles, constructed from 1677 to 1683, is the most famous of the fruit and kitchen gardens he oversaw in all the royal houses to meet the needs of the court: asparagus in December and strawberries in April, as well as the King's favorite figs. This book, published posthumously by La Quintinie's son Michel, introduced his methods to a wide audience. Later editions, such as our copy, added to the directions for pruning and thinning out buds sections on melons and flowers, as well as advice on dealing with orange tress and La Quintinie's reflection on agriculture.

        Les Loix du Roy Minos, ou continuation de quatrième livre des avantures de Telemaque fils d'Ulisse...

      Amsterdam: Francois l'Honore, 1716. Duodecimo, contemporary vellum, titled in ink on the spine, ; a good copy. 'Nouvelle edition' (according to the title-page) of this imaginary voyage, an early work in the tradition of Fénélon's Avantures de Télémaque, and a continuation of its fourth book.Fénélon's Télémaque was an idealised account of the Roman Republic, and one of the most important books in the French classical tradition of the imaginary voyage. Although the authorship of Les Loix du Roy Minos remains unknown, it is one of the most inventive of the Fénélon imitations, a detailed investigation of the legal and political system of the utopian Minos: the focus on the courts and policing of the kingdom suggests an author associated with the legal system.The book is rare: OCLC notes a single copy (City University of New York Graduate Library). Old patch to lower cover.

        Regni Norvegiae Accurata Tabula.

      , 1716. [Nuremberg], c.1716. Handcoloured Original Engraving (copper engraving). 49,5 cm wide x 59 cm high. Excellent condition of this beautiful original 18th century map. Johann Baptist Homann (20 March 1664 ? 1 July 1724) was a German geographer and cartographer, who made maps of the Americas.nHomann was born in Oberkammlach near Kammlach in the Electorate of Bavaria. Although educated at a Jesuit school and preparing an ecclesiastical career, he eventually converted to Protestantism and from 1687 worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house.nnHomann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as recommendation for potential customers.nnIn 1716 Homann published his masterpiece Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt (Grand Atlas of all the World). Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, who also published Siebmachers Wappenbuch.nnHomann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, in business until 1848, known as "Homann Erben", "Homanniani Heredes", "Heritiers de Homann" abroad. (Wikipedia)

      First Edition Paris chez Jean-Geoffroy Nyon, quay de Conti, au coin de la rue Guenegaud, au Nom de Jesus, Etienne Ganeau, rue Saint Jacques, aux Arm MDCCXVI [1716] 4to: xiv,298,[2]pp, with 35 (of 37) maps, plans and plates (18 of which are folding); ornamental engraved vignettes, and woodcut musical notation in the text (never bound in were the map of Détroit de le Maire, no. v, and the plate of Indiens en habits simples, no. ix); plate xvi was bound in twice). Contemporary calf, spine richly gilt in six compartments, brown leather lettering piece gilt, "Caissotti" in gilt script on upper board, all edges stained red, marbled end papers, red silk page marker. An exceptional, wide-margined copy, text, maps and plates fresh and clean, marred only by a stain in the gutter of first three leaves. Provenance: copper-engraved bookplate, "Il Cittadino / Carlo Giac. Caissotti." Sabin 25924. Borba de Moraes 328. Hill, p. 115. Leclerc 1736. Palau 94964. Gibson's Library, p. 128. First Edition of this classic in the literature of South American voyages of exploration. Frézier set sail in 1712 with a French commission to assess the strength of Spanish settlements on the Pacific coast and to revise existing charts. According to Hill, Frezier "brought back information of considerable geographical and scientific value" to later navigators, and his account is today appreciated for its keen observations of the customs, commerce, and natural history?including the cotton and strawberry plants?of Chile, Peru and Tierra del Fuego. (It's interesting to note that Frezier's surname was itself derived from fraise, the French for strawberry.) The chapters on Indian and Creole life include descriptions of costume and architecture, as well as musical instruments. The folding plans of cities visited are often enhanced by panoramic views, as in the case of Callao, Concepción, Valparaíso, La Serena, Salvador de Bahía, and Angra (Azores). Amongst the most important plates are the general map of the expedition, the Strait of Lemaire, Valdivia, Bahía de an Vicente, Santiago de Chile, Lima and Bahía de Todos los Santos. An immediate success, the work was soon translated into English and German and republished several times in the eighteenth century.

With letterpress folding table and 1 engraved folding plate. 2 works in 1 volume. 4to. Contemporary mottled half calf, gold-tooled spine.

      - Ad 1: DSB I, p. 548; ICCU TO0E 000864; Wheeler Gift 435bis; ad 2: DSB I, pp. 547-548; ICCU TO0E 000867; Wheeler Gift 424. First editions of two works on electricity by the Italian physicist Giambatista Beccaria (1716-1781), who was appointed to the chair of physics at the university of Turin in 1748 and was one of the scholars who helped transform electrology into a scientific discipline defending the theory of Benjamin Franklin.Ad 1: First edition, in the original Italian, of "Beccaria's last major contribution to the science of electricity" (DSB). It treats the theory of artificial electricity, especially in conducting bodies, deduced from the circulation of electricity in an ordinary apparatus. Beccaria explains and enlarges on Franklin's one-fluid theory of electricity. It contains descriptions of many experiments, with accompanying illustrations on the 11 engraved plates. It was translated into English, on Franklin's recommendation, in 1776.Ad 2: First edition, in the original Latin, of a collection of experiments and observations explaining the nature and properties of residual static electricity. Beccaria's interest in electricity "was reawakened by the work of a former student, G.F. Cigna, who in 1765 published an account of experiments that developed Nollet's elaboration of Symmer's famous manipulations with electrified silk stockings. Beccaria pursued these experiments with all his skill, inventiveness, and energy, largely because they seemed to favour the anti-Franklinian double-fluid theory. Beccaria, who would not admit action-at-a-distance, supplied this deficiency with a complicated scheme of electrical atmospheres and "vindicating," or regenerating, electricity. These ideas subsequently led Volta, while seeking alternatives to them, to the invention of the electrophorus" (DSB).Bookblock cracked, with some leaves a bit loose, a few leaves slightly browned and some occasional spots. Binding heavily rubbed, with much of the gold lost in the tooling on the spine. Good copy of two important works on electricity.

        A Discourse Concerning Treasons, and Bills of Attainder.

      1716. Learned 1716 Defense of Attainder [West, Richard (d. 1726)]. A Discourse Concerning Treasons, and Bills of Attainder. London: Printed for J. Roberts, 1716. [iv], 111 pp. Octavo (7-1/2" x 4-3/4"). Stab-stitched pamphlet bound into recent period-style quarter calf over marbled boards, raised bands and lettering piece to spine. Some soiling to title page and verso of final leaf. "By Mr. West" in fine early hand to title page, interior otherwise fresh. * First edition. One of the most controversial and feared powers of parliament, attainder was the extinction of the civil rights and powers of people convicted of treason or other grave felony. Its principal consequences were the forfeiture and escheat of lands and disqualification from holding, inheriting or transmitting land, either directly or through descent. Especially popular during the Reign of Henry VIII, bills of attainder were usually employed to punish persons who had displeased the king. (Mostly abolished in 1870, they were still applied to outlaws until 1932, when they were abolished altogether.) Their use as an arbitrary tool of reprisal caused widespread resentment. West appreciates this resentment, but argues that bills of attainder are justifiable in certain situations and defends their use. English Short-Title Catalogue T31938.

Engraved frontispiece portrait of John Locke by J. Nutting, after a painting by S. Brounower. Title page for each volume.Seventh and enlarged edition of John Locke's Essay "Concerning Human Understanding," a philosophical landmark originally published in 1689 (although dated 1690).One of the principal sources of empiricism in modern philosophy, this essay presents a detailed, systematic philosophy of mind and thought, and wrestles with fundamental questions about how we think and perceive, and it even touches on how we express ourselves through language, logic, and religious practices. In the introduction, entitled 'The Epistle to the Reader,' Locke describes how he became involved in his current mode of philosophical thinking. He relates an anecdote about a conversation with friends that made him realize that men often suffer in their pursuit of knowledge because they fail to determine the limits of their understanding. The Essay is divided into four books (two per volume):First volume:- Book I is devoted to an attack on nativism or the doctrine of innate ideas. Locke allowed that some ideas are in the mind from an early age, but argued that such ideas are furnished by the senses starting in the womb: for instance, differences between colors or tastes. If we have a universal understanding of a concept like sweetness, it is not because this is an innate idea, but because we are all exposed to sweet tastes at an early age. One of Locke's fundamental arguments against innate ideas is the very fact that there is no truth to which all people attest. He took the time to argue against a number of propositions that rationalists offer as universally accepted truth, for instance the principle of identity, pointing out that at the very least children and idiots are often unaware of these propositions. - Book II: Whereas Book I is intended to reject the doctrine of innate ideas proposed by Descartes and the rationalists, Book II explains that every idea is derived from experience either by sensation - direct sensory information - or reflection - "the perception of the operations of our own mind within us, as it is employed about the ideas it has got". Furthermore, Book II is also a systematic argument for the existence of an intelligent being: "Thus, from the consideration of ourselves, and what we infallibly find in our own constitutions, our reason leads us to the knowledge of this certain and evident truth, that there is an eternal, most powerful, and most knowing being; which whether any one will please to call God, it matters not!" Second volume:- Book III focuses on words. Locke connects words to the ideas they signify, claiming that man is unique in being able to frame sounds into distinct words and to signify ideas by those words, and then that these words are built into language. Chapter ten in this book focuses on "Abuse of Words." Here, Locke calls out metaphysicians for making up new words that have no clear meaning. He also criticizes the use of words which are not linked to clear ideas, and to those who change the criteria or meaning underlying a term. Thus he uses a discussion of language to demonstrate sloppy thinking. Locke followed the Port-Royal Logique (1662) in numbering among the abuses of language those that he calls "affected obscurity" in chapter 10. Locke complains that such obscurity is caused by, for example, philosophers who, to confuse their readers, invoke old terms and give them unexpected meanings or who construct new terms without clearly defining their intent. Writers may also invent such obfuscation to make themselves appear more learned or their ideas more complicated and nuanced or erudite than they actually are. - Book IV and last, focuses on knowledge in general - that it can be thought of as the sum of ideas and perceptions. Locke discusses the limit of human knowledge, and whether knowledge can be said to be accurate or truthful. Thus there is a distinction between what an individual might claim to "know", as part of a system of knowledge, and whether or not that claimed knowledge is actual. For example, Locke writes at the beginning of Chap. IV (Of the Reality of Knowledge): "I doubt not my Reader by this Time may be apt to think that I have been all this while only building a Castle in the Air; and be ready to say to me, To what purpose all of this stir? Knowledge, say you, is only the Perception of the Agreement or Disagreement of our own Ideas: but who knows what those Ideas may be? ... But of what use is all this fine Knowledge of Man's own Imaginations, to a Man that enquires after the reality of things? It matters now that Mens Fancies are, 'tis the Knowledge of Things that is only to be priz'd; 'tis this alone gives a Value to our Reasonings, and Preference to one Man's Knowledge over another's, that is of Things as they really are, and of Dreams and Fancies." In the last chapter of the book, Locke introduces the major classification of sciences into physics, semiotics, and ethics.Binding heavily rubbed along edges, with closed tears along joints.

        Orthographischer Auffzug

      eines großen Herrn Pallasts oder Königlichen Hauses, mit dem Durchschnitt deß vorderen Seiten Hoffs. P. Decker Archit. invent. et del. (Paulus Decker Architectus inuentauit et delineauit: Der Architekt Paul Decker entwarf und zeichnete). Cum Privil. Sac. Caes. Maj. (Cum Priuilegio Sacrae Caesareae Maiestatis: Mit der Erlaubnis der heiligen und kaiserlichen Majestät). Ioh. August. Corvinus Sculps. (Iohannes Augustus Coruinus sculpsit: Johann August Corvinus hat gestochen). Ieremias Wolff excud. Aug. Vind. (Ieremias Wolff excudit Augustae Vindelicorum: [Der Kupferstecher] Jeremias Wolff verlegte in Augsburg). Kupferstich in sechs Platten: Platte a, Platte b, Platte c, Platte d, Platte e, Platte 5(?). Jede der Platten hat eine ungefähre Blattgröße von 38 x 41 cm. Einige der Blätter sind teilweise, andere gänzlich hinterlegt. Die Übergänge (Überlappungen) sind korrekt. Nur am linken Extrem scheint das Blatt etwas knapp (es handelt sich wohl um die Stelle, an der das Bild in einem Buch eingefügt war). Das Papier ist durchgängig leicht angestaubt. Der zentrale Bereich, der den Haupteingang abbildet (Platten c und d), weist stärkere Schäden (womöglich, durch Flüssigkeiten oder Feuchtigkeit) und Flecken auf. Das gesamte Bild wurde mehrmals und zu unterschiedlichen Zeiten (meist fachgerecht) hinterlegt. Abgebildet ist der Entwurf einer barocken Palastfassade von Paul Decker, die höchstwahrscheinlich nie realisiert wurde. Es sind klar unterschiedliche Varianten in der Gestaltung der Fassade an den beiden Flügeln, die vom Haupteingang ablaufen, zu erkennen, jedoch können wir nicht versichern, ob es sich hierbei um Querschnitte und Einsichten in Innenhöfe oder um eine Aneinanderreihung verschiedener gestalterischen Alternativen handelt. Höchst wahrscheinlich gehörte dieser Kupferstich zu der großformatigen Reihe "Fürstlicher Baumeister oder Architectura Ciuilis, wie Grosser Fürsten und Herren Paläste mit ihren Höfen [...]". Wir vermuten, der Stich könnte einer der zweiunddreißig 1716 posthum veröffentlichten Kupferstichen sein, die den zweiten (letzten und unvollendeten) Band bildeten. Dieses Werk war offensichtlich (da keine textlichen Erläuterungen vorhanden sind) als Vorlagebuch gedacht und entspricht stilistisch dem von Decker begründeten idealen Barock. Siehe Fotos.
