        Orthographischer Auffzug eines großen Herrn Pallasts oder Königlichen Hauses, mit dem Durchschnitt deß vorderen Seiten Hoffs.

      Paul Decker o.J. (ca. 1716)., Augsburg - 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.

      "Perkamenten band; [1] (8)+146+(6) pag., met gegraveerd ongesigneerd frontispice [door Jan Luyken]; [2] (14)+365 pag.; [3] (8)+314 pag., met gegraveerd ongesigneerd frontispice met jaartal 1716 en de tekst 'Thychanders zeldzame levensloop'."."[1] Muller 884; Van Eeghen/v.d. Kellen 285; Niet in Buisman; Klaversma/Hannema-Luyken, nr. 1047. [2] Buisman 2047. [3] Buisman 2154, zonder verblijfplaats. Niet in NCC en niet in STCN. [1] Abraham Magirus (1634-1702) was predikant in De Koog op Texel en schreef behalve enkele theologische werken dit populaire boekje over menseneters, uit alle tijden en in alle werelddelen. Ook over het eten van het eigen lichaam, de rol van duivel, tovenaars en heksen, menseneten uit liefde, bijtende hoeren, etc. Het boekje is zeer zeldzaam. De NCC en STCN kennen slechts één exemplaar (UBA).$[2] Ook het boekje over gravin De Frene is zeldzaam. Twee exemplaren in de STCN (UBL en KB). Het is een vertaling van de in 1701 verschenen 'Memoires de Madame la marquise de Frene'. Deze Nederlandse vertaling heeft een opdracht aan F.P. van Wagtendonk en H. Brenkman door de vertaler, die zich N.N. noemt. Daarna volgt een voorrede, zogenaamd van mevrouw De Frene zelf en een drempelgedicht van P. Rabus. De auteur is Gatien de Courtilz de Sandras (1644-1712), een Frans schrijver van populaire romans in de stijl van een autobiografie. Zijn bekendste boek gaat over de muskatier d'Artagnan. Hij was behalve schrijver ook militair en verbleef een deel van zijn leven in gevangenschap in de Bastille.$[3] Het derde werk in deze band is in geen enkele bibliotheek te vinden. Buisman noemt de titel wel, maar kende ook geen verblijfplaats. Het boek eindigt met 'Einde des eersten deels' maar Buisman deelt al mee dat hij geen tweede deel kent. Tychander was een Duitse schelm (vergelijk het boek van A.M. Cordie 'Raum und Zeit des vaganten', 2001). In 1668 had de Haarlemse predikant Hieronymus Dürer (vgl. De Bie/Loosjes II) te Hamburg een boek gepubliceerd onder de titel 'Lauf der Welt und Spiegel des Glücks: zum Spiegel Menschliches lebens voorgestellet in den wunderwürdigen lebens-Beschreibung des Tychanders' (facsimilé ed. 1984). Waarschijnlijk is het hier aangeboden werk een vertaling of bewerking hiervan. Een aanwijzing dat Dürer wel eens de auteur zou kunnen zijn blijkt uit het bericht aan de lezer voorin; waarin hij laat blijken Holland en de Hollanders te kennen."

Chez Jean-François Nyon, Etienne Ganneau, Jacques Quillau, à Paris 1716, In-4 (18x25cm), relié. - Edition orignale, precious and rare. It is beautifully illustrated with 37 plates, 18 of folding; we can distinguish 22 maps, including Santiago, Pisco, Lima, Valparaisso, Cotes Chilli and berries Binding in full speckled basne contemporary. Back with nerves decorated. As Exhibit morocco tobacco. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, précieuse et rare. Elle est superbement illustrée de 37 planches (flore, costumes et coutumes, faune), dont 18 dépliantes ; on y distingue 22 cartes et plans, notamment de Santiago, Pisco, Lima, Valparaiso, Côtes et baies du Chili. Reliure en pleine basane mouchetée d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin tabac. Mors et coiffes habilement restaurés. Rousseurs éparses en marge, à la limite des feuillets. 8 planches ont une restauration en marge basse (bande de papier ancienne). 3 planches ont été coupées plus courtes en marge basse. Page de titre et d'épitre présentant une malhabile restauration en bas de page. Malgré quelques rousseurs éparses, le papier est demeuré blanc, hormis la carte jaunie de l'extrémité de l'Amérique méridionale. Coiffes et mors habilement restaurés. Bon exemplaire. A l'origine de ce rare voyage sur les côtes occidentales de l'Amérique du Sud, il y eut la volonté de la France de connaître dans ces régions éloignées, les richesses du roi d'Espagne, donc l'importance des fortifications et des ports, des richesses minières et commerciales...  La mission étant confidentielle, Frézier embarque comme simple particulier sur un navire marchand, le Saint-Joseph de 350 tonneaux, 150 hommes et 36 canons en janvier 1712. L'expédition atteint Concepción en juin 1712. Fin septembre, Frézier part pour huit mois pour Valparaiso d'où il visite Santiago, à 100 km de là. En mai 1713, il repart pour le Nord, visite Serena, la côte de Copiapo, et arrive jusqu'à Callao, le port de Lima. Il revient à Concepción, où il séjourne de novembre 1713 à février 1714, puis s'embarque pour la France sur un bateau marchand qui parvient à Marseille en août 1714. La Relation fut longtemps prisée pour son apport cartographique rigoureux, qui apporta en effet de grandes avancées dans ce domaine sur une partie du monde jugée dangereuse et mal connue (Bougainville et La Pérouse cite Frézier lors de leur passage en Amérique du Sud). L'auteur ne se contente pas de reussir sa mission quant à collecter des informations sur les fortifications, batteries et des troupes de ces ports, il collecte également des renseignements précieux sur la flore, les minéraux, les coutumes, la situation des colons et des esclaves. L'ouvrage de Frézier constitue un cas assez unique d'exploration des confins de ce monde (Chili et Pérou) à une date assez précoce.

        Cinq dialogues faits à l'imitation des anciens par Oratius Tubero ; quatre EDITION ORIGINALE

      A Francfort: Par Jean Savius, 1716. Fine. Par Jean Savius, A Francfort 1716, In-12 (9,5x15,7cm), 2 tomes en 2 volumes reliés. - first edition. Title pages in red and black. Binding of the late eighteenth assigned Derôme Le Jeune., In the blond calf. Back smooth decorated with four finials, castors head and tail. Part of title and volume number morocco beige. Triple framing fillet on plates with angular florets. Inner lace. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition, rare, éditée sous un pseudonyme, mais de la main de François de La Mothe Le vayer. Pages de titre en rouge et noir.Les précédentes édition portaient le pseudonyme de Orasius Tubero. Reliure de la fin du XVIIIe attribuée à Derôme Le jeune, en plein veau blond. Dos lisse orné de 4 fleurons, roulettes en tête et queue. Pièce de titre et de tomaison en maroquin beige. Triple filet d'encadrement sur les plats avec fleurons angulaires. Dentelle intérieure.  Un léger manque au mors inférieur en tête, et au mors supérieur en tête du second tome. Très bel exemplaire. Les premières éditions du XVIIe de ces dialogues furent clandestines et tirés à très petit nombre ; en 1630 parurent 4 dialogues, et en 1631 cinq nouveaux. La Mothe Le Vayer est l'un des principaux représentants de ce qu'on appelé le "libertinage érudit", un mouvement français de pensée qui se situe préalablement à l'esprit des Lumières. Dans l'ensemble des dialogues, qui sont de libres entretiens, l'auteur s'acharne à démolir toutes les certitudes établies, et toutes les illusions, notamment la raison, et ce dans toutes les disciplines établies : la physique, la logique, la politique dans les premiers dialogues, et ce qui concerne la vie privée dans les derniers ; mais il ne s'agit pas chez Le Vayer d'un scepticisme cartésien mais plutôt d'une attitude audacieuse, indépendante qui tend à saper par l'utilisation systématique du paradoxe, notamment chez les philosophes, toute forme de certitude. Les Dialogues ne sont pas un livre de philosophie classique, le style en est par ailleurs trop libre et relaché, mais un livre qui tient à la fois de la critique, de l'érudition, du bon sens, et des préjugés. Descartes fait par ailleurs référence, dans sa correspondance, de la publication en 1630, d'un "méchant livre" qui l'aurait empêché d'écrire, et il pourrait bien s'agir de ces Dialogues, les quelques détails que donne le philosophe semblant identifier le livre de La Mothe La Vayer. Ex-libris gravé Bibliothèque de Mr. Beauprén conseiller à la cour de Nancy. Une étiquette bleu en médaillon portant les lettres PB.

The translator (Ag erina, Belmonte de Miranda, 1657-Rome, 1739), Jesuit, Cardinal, Latinist, teacher, historian and diplomat, was a man on extraordinary talent. The main subject is Leopold's numerous campaigns, both military and diplomatic, against the Turks, French and Spanish. In 1658 he repulsed the Turks, who had attempted an invasion of Hungary. In 1683 the Turks were defeated at the gates of Vienna. The first Spanish edition appeared in Milan, 1696 (with only 22? [or 26] plates), a third was published in Milan, 1734, a fourth in Antwerp, 1735, and a fifth in Milan, 1740. It is interesting that the present edition appeared in the Austrian Netherlands shortly after the conclusion of the War of the Spanish Succession. Many of the fine engravings are accompanied by explanatory text. Subjects depicted on the plates are: Portrait of the Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand I;Portrait of John II Casimire, King of Poland;Portrait of Charles Gustavus, King of Sweden;Portrait of Queen Christina of Sweden; Portrait of general Count Raymondo de Montecucculi;Portrait of Leopold Wilhelm, Archduke of Austria; Battle of Leventz (1664); Battle of St. Gotthard; Portrait of Sultan Suleiman II of Turkey;Portrait of D.

The whole book is so full of criticism of the methods and actions of the Inquisition, especially in regard to witches, victims of superstitions, censorship of books, Jews, etc. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Ouvrage paru anonymement et référencé par Barbier (Ouvrages anonymes) II, 229p. Reliure en pleine basane brune d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné.

L'introduction constitue une dénonciation de ce que l'auteur conçoit comme des particularités nationales dont la France serait absolument exempte, l'auteur rappelant qu'une telle conduite est inconcevable dans l'église du Christ, et qu'on n'eût jamais de telles actions envers les hérétiques (même chez les romains) sauf dans les pays de l'Inquisition. L'ensemble de l'ouvrage est ainsi plein d'une critique des méthodes et des actions de l'Inquisition, notamment en ce qui concerne les sorciers et sorcières, victimes de superstitions, la censure des livres, les juifs, etc.

John Radcliffe (1650-1714) was a successful, Oxford-educated, English physician. He established a large practice at London that was as much a result of his witty conversation as his clinical skill and accurate prognoses, though sometimes his wit seems to have verged on rudeness, especially to his social superiors, and his prognoses were blunt. He became chief physician to the Princess Anne in 1686, after which he was employed professionally by William III, whom he eventually offended. At his death he bequeathed money in trust to Oxford University to build and maintain a library, which was completed in 1747 and still bears his name, and other large sums for charitable use.

Prima edizione di questa raccolta di studi, esperimenti ed osservazioni compiuti dal noto erudito in vari campi delle scienze naturali. "This work, edited by one of Kircher's pupils, Johann Stephan Kestler, is a codification of Kircher's observations and experiments across the entire spectrum of his researches in physics. Naturally there are large sections in light and shadow, magnetism, acoustics, and music; but there are also experiments and observations in hydrolics, alchemy, and a myriad of other topics. This compendium was perhaps a response to entreaties from Kircher's fellow scientists, who appreciated his keen observations and experiments but did not care to wade through some 40 volumes to glean them. The book is an example of what Kircher's writings could have been like at the hands of a good editor. Kircher died the year the book was published, and it is uncertain to what extent he was involved in its publication. The Physiologia is not only a measure of Kircher's scientific curiosity and the vast range of his scientific researches, but also a barometer of his age, a catalogue of scientific concern of his time" (Merrill, Kircher, 29).

      [Nuremberg], 1716. Folio (313 x 195mm). pp (xxiv), 112, with title in red and black, woodcut headpiece, engraved portrait of Lochner (folded), and 40 double-page engraved plates. Contemporary vellum, old manuscript title on spine. First edition. This work catalogues the natural history collections of Basil Besler (1561-1629) and his nephew Michael Rupert (1607-1661), both Nuremberg apothecaries. /The collection was one of the first such private museums in Germany. Basil Besler published two rare suites of engravings, in 1616 and 1622, illustrating his cabinet, and Michael Rupert published in 1642 his Gazophylacium rerum naturalium devoted to his own additions to the collection. Lochner utilised the 24 plates from the 1616 suite, and added 16 further plates some of which derive from the 1662 suite and the 1642 Gazophylacium, and some depicting further objects not previously illustrated. In addition, he has written a detailed descriptive text and a history of the collection. Six plates, entitled Fructus, show various seeds and fruit; four larger plates follow, one with a Brazilian indian seed-girdle, unusual roots including ginseng, etc, one with a group of aquatic birds, one with birds-of-paradise, toucans and hornbills, and one devoted to unusual animal horns; four plates, entitled Animalia, include an armadillo, crocodiles, an iguana and chameleon, snakes, etc.; these are followed by a larger plate with a hammerhead shark, a dracaena, a ray, etc; six plates, entitled Marina and two Conchilia depict various wonders of the sea, including 3 nautilus shells; a larger plate features various 'Archimboldo' shell grotesques; the remaining 17 plates, 14 of which are entitled Lapides, with two larger untitled plates, are devoted to various stones, minerals, fossils, corals, etc. //Cobres 102 n. 9; Nissen ZBI, 348.

      Lipsiae [Leipzig] : Apud Joh. Frid. Gleditsch & Filium, 1716-01-01. Hardcover. Very Good. Jus Feudale tribus libris comprehensum. Fine binding. 4to.

Marbled end pages. Clean, unmarked pages. Toning. Thomas Craig was a Scottish lawyer, jurist and poet. He probably started work on Jus Feudale in the late 1590s and there is considerable internal evidence to suggest that much of it was written in 1600. There was at least one revision, probably in 1606. The culmination of a lifetime's professional involvement in Scottish law, it was enriched by frequent allusions to practice. Written in admirably clear Latin, it is a typical humanistic work in its classical quotations and references and historical and philological discussions. That it originated in a patriotic concern for Scots law is revealed by Craig's stated Ciceronian aim of reducing that law to an ordered science, thereby making it easier for students to learn. He achieves this admirably, writing an accessible, learned, and well-structured work, in which he stresses the feudal origins of much Scots law (and English law too), and from that basis explains and expounds his subject in a logical fashion. He ultimately validates Scots law and its practices in the law of nature and nations in a way that to some extent anticipates Grotius. Craig's systematic account of feudal land law and its principles influenced numerous later Scottish writers, but also had an impact on English legal writers and on English understanding of the history of the common law.

        Trivia: or, The Art of Walking the Streets of London

      1716. GAY, John. Trivia: or the Art of Walking the Streets of London. [4], 80, [12] pp. 8vo., 195 x 120 mm, full nineteenth-century maroon morocco by Riviere. London: Bernard Lintott, [1716]. First Edition of Gay's poem based upon the Georgics of Virgil. "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). The title of the work signifies streets- the avenues of London, both grand and squalid, portrayed so vividly in the poem. In Gay's interpretation of Virgil's work, the harmonious balance between country and city life is revealed as a hopeless dream: modern urban existence, with all of its defects, was now the dominant mode for humanity. One of only 250 large paper copies. Slight crack at head of spine, else a fine copy. Rothschild 914. Hayward 142. Foxon G82. V.A. Dearing (ed.), John Gay. Poetry and Prose 546.

        Decii Junii Juvenalis et Auli Persii Flacci Satyrae

      London - Jacob Tonson and John Watts, 1716 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarceearly eighteenth-century copy of Juvenal's Satires. Featuring an engraved frontispiece. In Latin. With an armorial bookplate to the front pastedown. The Satires are a collection of satirical poems by the Latin author Juvenal written in the late 1st and early 2nd centuries AD. Juvenal is credited with sixteen known poems divided among five books; all are in the Roman genre of satire, which comprised a wide-ranging discussion of society and social mores in dactylic hexameter. These five books were discrete works, and there is no reason to assume that they were published at the same time or that they are identical in theme or in approach. The poems are not individually titled, but translators have often added titles for the convenience of readers. Condition: In a full speckled calf binding. Externally, sound with some rubbing to the extremities. Spine label missing. Joints cracked but holding firm. Internally, firmly bound. Slight age toning butvery clean throughout. Ink number to front pastedown. The top corner of the front free endpaper has been clipped. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        Dissertatio Physica de Terra Australi quam

      Leipzig: Typis Immanuelis Titis, 1716. Small quarto, 24 pp., significant browning to several pages, but a handsome copy, tear to edge of title-page neatly repaired (not affecting text); unbound, with strip of old pink marbled paper protecting the spine. An excellent copy of a very scarce title.Rivinus is not known to have published many works. It is interesting that one of his later titles, Tentamina quaedam physico-medica circa terras medicinales (1723), is known to have been in the library of Sir Joseph Banks (see Dryander's catalogue, volume IV, p. 353).

        Jushikei Hakki [trans.: Expression of the Fourteen Meridians]

      16 full-page woodcut illus. in the text. 56 folded leaves. Three vols. in one. 8vo, orig. wrappers (rubbed, one leaf with about five characters obscured due to a stain), orig. block printed title label on upper cover (rubbed & frayed), newly stitched in the oriental style. Tokyo: 1716. An early Japanese edition of one of the most important Chinese texts on acupuncture. Katsu "was a Chinese physician whose years are uncertain but who lived prior to the time of the Ming dynasty. He wrote a book on the introduction of the moxa system into Japan from China, the original Japanese edition of which was published in 1684 with the title Jushikei (or Jushikyo) hakki [Mestler is in error here; there were earlier editions]...A theoretical discussion, by Katsu, chiefly on acupuncture but equally applicable to moxa, not on how to cure but on the more fundamental nature of the subject, comprised the first part of that work. The first part discussed the fundamental belief of the Chinese and Japanese in a relationship between the internal organs and their diseases, and curative treatment for them at specific sites on the outside of the body. The second part, written by an unknown co-author, was subtitled Juishikei ketsu chi-ho and gave practical instruction. Several illustrations in this work show relationships between moxa or acupuncture sites and specific internal organs (e.g. between the hands and the lungs). Two drawings are especially interesting as showing external measurements of the human body, anterior and posterior aspects, referring to differences between lean and fat individuals and the influence of aging."-Mestler, "A Galaxy of Old Japanese Medical Books With Miscellaneous Notes on Early Medicine in Japan. Part II. Acupuncture and Moxibustion. Bathing, Balneotherapy and Massage. Nursing, Pediatrics and Hygiene. Obstetrics and Gynecology," pp. 473-74. The sixteen full-page woodcut illustrations explain the centers for acupuncture. The text, in three parts or volumes, concerns Yin and Yang through the arms and legs; circulation of the breath of life through the fourteen meridians; and the eight vital blood vessels. Very nice copy with some relatively inoffensive worming touching a few characters and images. .
