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

      La compagnie des libraires Paris: La compagnie des libraires, 1716. Contemporary mottled sheep and calf as above, corners and edges worn, all joints cracking, both volumes with minor worming to front covers and pinholes to spines; vol. I with loss of leather over spine head (half of top compartment). Pencilled check marks scattered throughout; front free endpaper and recto of last text page of vol. II with annotations.. 8vo (17 cm, 6.75"). 2 vols. I: Frontis., [40], 360 pp.; 13 (2 fold.) plts., 1 fold. map. II: [8], 479, [1 (blank)] pp. 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.

Sandrart, nel 1702 iniziò una propria produzione cartografica, raggiungendo ben presto un notevole successo per l'eleganza e la modernità, ben amalgamando aspetto scientifico e decorativo. Nel 1707 pubblicò il primo atlante, arricchendolo rapidamente fino a superare il centinaio di carte con il ''Grosser Atlas" di 126 carte.

        Gazophylacium rerum naturalium e regno vegetabili, animali & minerali depromptarum...

      Leipzig and Frankfurt, Johann Herbort Kloss, 1716. Folio (386 x 264 mm). ff. 36, comprising title in red and black with engraved vignette, letterpress index leaf, and 34 engraved plates numbered (2-36, the title counting as plate one according to the index); a very good copy in contemporary sheep-backed speckled boards (skilful repair to hinges and edges worn). Second edition (first 1642). Basil Besler's Wunderkammer was inherited and added to by his nephew Michael Rupert, who here published a catalogue of his additions. This 'treasury of natural things from the vegetable, animal, and mineral kingdoms' exhibits such typical Wunderkammer contents as a unicorn horn, a hyoidal bone of a swan, a beak of a hornbill, a bird of paradise, a carved nautilus shell, an 'Arcimboldo' grotesque of shells, pyritised ammonites, asbestos, 'ruin' marble, engraved gems and antique coins, along with such unica as Johann Zizka's sword. Many rare plants and birds are figured, along with ethnographic objects such as a Brazilian Indian girdle made from the nuts of the Brazilian tree Cerbera ahovai. The image of this plate was used for the border of Valentini's Museum museorum, Frankfurt 1714. Michael Rupert (1607-61), a physician and pharmacist in Nuremberg, was a virtuoso scholar-collector, and also assembled an important collection of art and antiquities. These plates were first published in 1642, reissued in 1716, and again in 1733. The engraved title of the 1642 edition was replaced here by a letterpress title with engraved vignette. Apart from the index leaf there was no further text, and the plates were printed from the original coppers. Cobres p. 102 n 10; Nissen ZBI, 346.

        Pharmacopée universelle, contenant toutes les compositions de pharmacie qui sont en usage dans la médecine, tant en France que par toute l'Europe; leurs vertus, leurs doses, les manieres d'operer les plus simples & les meilleures. Plusieurs remarques....

      A Paris, Chez Laurent d'Houry, 1716. 1716 In-4° (250x180mm), pp. (16), 1100, (42) di indice bicolonne, (1) bianca con indice di alcuni medicamenti manoscritto in antico al recto. Legatura coeva p. pelle marrone con dorso a 5 nervi adorno di titolo in oro su tassello rosso e di fregi in oro entro scomparti. Frontespizio in rosso e in nero con piccolo giglio in xilografia. Dedica a stampa a Guy Crescent Fagon, primo medico regio. Testatine, finalini e capilettera istoriati incisi su legno. Annotazioni di un proprietario settecentesco alla prima c. bianca. Qualche lieve arrossatura e alone interno. Restauri professionalmente eseguiti al dorso. Buon esemplare. Seconda edizione di questa classica farmacopea, apparsa primamente nel 1697, forse la più conosciuta e rinomata del suo secolo, monumentale silloge di tutte le composizioni farmaceutiche vigenti in Francia ed in Europa fra il secolo decimosettimo e il decimottavo, con indicazione delle loro modalità di sommnistrazione, dei loro dosaggi, delle loro virtù terapeutiche. L'opera contiene inoltre svariati agganci occultistici ed "un grand nombre d'operations de chimie, des recettes pour la preparation des gelées, des condits et des conserves" (Dorbon-Ainé). Il Lemery (Rouen, 1645-Parigi, 1715), insegnante di chimica e farmacista a Parigi, dovette abbandonare la propria attività a causa della propria fede calvinista. Riparato in Inghilterra, si convertì convenientemente al cattolicesimo, cosa che gli consentì il ritorno a Parigi e la ripresa della precedente attività. La sua pratica farmaceutica gli permise di compiere significativi esperimenti chimici sulle basi dei sali e le proporzioni degli acidi riassunte nell'importante "Cours de Chimie" del 1675, in cui l'acume dello sperimentatore è bizzarramente frammisto a teorie mediate da Paracelso e a credenze alchemico-iatrochimiche affatto fantastiche. "Lémery was one of the most interesting men of his time. He condemned the alchemistic mysteries which still cluttered chemistry up, and was largely responsible for the love of chemical experiment which was so distinctive a character of the 18th century" (Duveen).

        THE HOLY BIBLE, CONTAINING THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENTS. Newly translated out of the original tongues: and with the former translations diligently compared and revised. One volume in two.

      Edinburgh: Printed by James Watson, 1716. . 12mo, (120x62mm), [501 leaves, ?of 502], general title and separate title to the New Testament present, both with the printer's device; the former soiled and mounted on Japanese paper, a small piece torn from the head-fore corner of 2M8, some marginal tears repaired to several leaves. Slightly browned at the edges throughout and with the margins occasionally cut close to the text or, on a very few leaves, shaving the text. Contemporary dark blue calf, the centre of each cover decorated in gilt to a design formed from several individual tools within a frame of an ornamental roll with corner arabesques, backstrips gilt tooled in 5 compartments with raised bands; the whole slightly rubbed and a small area of wear at the head of the first volume, and with surface cracking of the leather on the backstrips; marbled paper endleaves, the front free endleaf of volume one replaced with near-contemporary marbled paper of a similar pattern and colour. Signature of Miss [Sarah] Campell dated 1770, partly obscured at the head of the general title and on the pastedown endleaf of the second volume and a gift inscription to Margaret Forbes 'from her affectionate mother' Sarah Forbes; another previous early owner's signature totally obscured to either side of the printer's device on volume one. (Herbert Historical catalogue of printed editions of the English Bible 940) The text ends on Tt10 (as accords with ESTC which locates 20 copies of this edition in the British Isles and 4 in the USA), this copy appears to lack A2 but the text begins at Genesis so presumably is wanting either a separate title to the Old Testament or a prefatory or dedicatory leaf.

        With the fur trade in crisis, La Compagnie du Castor shows signs of panic. Manuscript document, signed

      August 27 Montreal: August 27, 1716. 1 leaf folio (35cm); torn at bottom edge with loss of text at lower right of recto and damage to signatures at lower left of verso. Repaired with blank white paper, which has toned to tan. Main text and signatures still present and legible. Condition noted. Reference: Lande, Political Economy of New France, #214. In 1715, the Compagnie du Castor, directed by Nicolas de la Lanouillier, retained the monopoly on the beaver trade in Canada. The company failed to honor its bills of exchange that year, and failed in all of its payments the following spring. The company scrambled to hire intermediary suppliers to deal with the rough trappers and traders at the bottom of the fur trade, but the middlemen refused to function without guarantees of payment. The present document is a declaration made by the company director in the presence of (no less than!) the acting governor of New France, Claude de Ramezay, that a certain supplier named Brire, "who does not know how to write," delivered 190 packs of dry beaver weighing 120 pounds each, and that it was duly noted in the Bureau of Beaver Inventory (Bureau de la Recette des Castors) in Montreal. The document is signed by Lanouillier, Ramezay, and several prominent merchants. There is a note of panic in the assembly of big shots to guarantee a transaction between the monopoly and an illiterate trader. By 1720, the Compagnie du Castor was amalgamated into the Compagnie des Indes.

        The Whole Art of Surveying and Measuring of Land made Easy

      London, Printed for W Taylor, at the Ship in Pater-Noster Row, 1716. The Third Edition with Additions: An antiqarian rarity. Bound in full dark brown leather, banded spine, title in gilt. The book is Geodaecia, The whole art of Surveying but in this edition Geodaecia is not mentioned on the title page. The book has been rebacked using parts of the origanal binding including the front cover at some point since publication and therefore the endpapers are cleaner than the text. The front cover has the remains of a handwritten title in the background, not easy to see. The title page of the text is slightly stained but fully readable. A previous owner has written his name in very tiny writting under the main title this reads 'William Landen, 1719.' The full title of the book reads as follows but with the 's's being 'f's. "The Whole Art of Surveying and Measuring of Land, Made Easie, shewing By plain and Practical Rules, how to Survey, Protract, Castup, Reduce or Divide any Piece of Land whatsoever; with New Tables for the Ease of the Surveyor in Reducing the Measures of Land. Moreover A more Easie and Sure Way Surveying by trhe Chain, than has hitherto been Taught, As also, How to lay out New Lands in America, or elsewhere to make a Perfect Map of a River's Mouith or Harbour; with several other Things never yet published in our Landguage." The book opens with the Preface to the Reader, The Contents, 196 pages, followed by A Table of the Northing and Southing, Easting, or Westing of every Degree from the Meridian according to the Number of Chaines run upon any Degree. After this section comes An Appendix shewing farther How to Survey by the Chain only. With useful Table to that purpose pages 1-3. The book is illustrated with tables, geometrical diagrams. Size of book 7.75 x 4.75 inches approx., the book is in extremely good condition for its age and would grace the shelves of any architect or Mathematician. Extraordinarily rare.

Hyde A bibliography of the works of Emanuel Swedenborg 58-62 med avvikande uppgifter om antalet planscher. En sjätte del trycktes i Skara 1718, den är extremt sällsynt och saknas här. Nummer V med svensk och latinsk parallelltext. Titelbladet och förordet till del I finns i flera varianter.

"Dæadalus hyperborus" utgavs av Vetenskapssocietetens föregångare sällskapet Collegium curiosorum genom Emanuel Swedberg, adlad Swedenborg, som också skrivit det mesta i publikationen, ofta med utgångspunkt i hans läromästare Polhems uppfinningar, rön och försök. Bland Swedenborgs egna uppsatser märks hans "Utkast til en machine at flyga i wädret" på s. 80-83. Även Lars Roberg och Johan Vallerius bidrog med varsin uppsats. Det intressanta och sällsynta arbetet, som av Lindroth betecknas som "vårt lands första vetenskapliga tidskrift" lades ned i brist på prenumeranter. Den utgavs i faksimil i Vetenskapssocietetens minnesskrift vid tvåhundraårsjubileet 1910. Vetenskapssocieteten återupptog tanken med en periodisk skrift med sina "Acta" som började utges 1720

        [Atlas Novus] Grosser Atlas uber die Gantze Welt

      Nuremberg: in Verlegung des Auctoris. Gedruckt bey Ernst Adelbulner, J.D. Adelbulner, 1716 -[1735].Folio. (21 1/2 x 13 3/8 inches). Letterpress title in red and black with integral engraved vignette featuring a map of the Arctic regions. Hand-coloured engraved additional title by Caspar Luyken with allegorical figures of the continents and Atlas holding up the heavens, engraved portrait of Charles VI by Jacob Weisshof, early 4pp. manuscript index of maps (numbered to 160). 190 double-page engraved maps (comprising 168 maps with Homann imprints and 22 maps by the Danckerts family and others). (Marginal tears to additional title and some maps). Contemporary German calf, covers panelled in blind, spine in seven compartments with raised bands (rubbed, stab hole through upper cover, head and foot of spine chipped with loss). A fine coloured copy of Homann's 'Atlas Novus': here with the number of maps extended. A significantly extended copy of the Homann families 'Great Atlas': this copy contains by far the greatest number of maps of any copy currently on the market. According to auction records, only three copies have been sold at auction in the past thirty five years (in 1980, 1998 and 2000) which contained a greater number of maps. The maps (which are dated between 1702 and 1735) include two World maps, four of the Americas ('Totius Americae Septentrionalis et Meridionalis'; 'Regni Mexicani seu Novae Hispaniae, Floridae, Virginiae, et Pensylvaniae' and 'Amplissimae Regionis Mississipi', all by J.B. Homann; and 'Recentissima Novi Orbis sive Americae Septentrionalis et Meridionalis tabula' by Danckerts), fifteen astronomical charts, and about twenty plans of European cities and their environs (including Venice, Vienna, Hamburg, Berlin, Gdansk, Copenhagen, Belgrade, Constantinople and Corfu). Johann Baptist Homann and his family were the foremost German map publishers of the 18th century, offering a truly comprehensive range of maps of all regions of the world. Rivaling the publications of the Blaeu dynasty in the Netherlands, the Homann families' maps are distinctive: always well engraved and balanced in their execution, and when hand coloured, as here, the colouring is handled with exemplary finesse. The interesting contemporary manuscript index at the front offers some insight into how the Homann's published their atlas expecting that it would be added to subsequently. The 4pp. listing evidently prepared for the original owner when the atlas was first bound, lists a total of 160 maps, with spaces left after number which allowed for a further four maps to be added 'between' each of the 'original' maps (by the use of 'numbers' 1a, 1b, 1c. 1d, 2a, 2b, 2c, etc). The system was not understood by the owner and the numbering broke down with the addition of the titles of only four maps. Subsequently, twenty-four maps by Homann Heirs, Danckerts and others were added that are not recorded in the index. The latest date on these maps is 1735, giving an approximate date when the atlas was completed. Cf Nordenskiold I pp.177-212.

Tanned, with early ownership signature at top margin of title, marginal chipping to final leaf (last leaf of index). Generally a good copy, handsomely bound. First edition. Although occasionally attributed erroneously to Thomas Salmon, this work's attribution to Oldmixon, the extremely prolific Whig poet and political writer, is now accepted.

Den franska texten trycktes första gången året innan, men detta är första tryckningen av den tyska översättningen och av anmärkningarna. Gustav Henrik von Müllern (1664-1719) var av estländsk adlig släkt och tillhörde den närmsta kretsen kring Karl XII. Han blev kansliråd 1708 och var kansler mellan 1710 och 1714. Han blev ansvarig som förste minister i utrikesärendena men tappade där kommandot till Vellingk och Goertz, och förblir trots sin centrala ställning en ganska anonym figur. Han var vid denna tid mer engagerad för fred med Georg I av England, medan Goertz snarare stödde en fred med Ryssland. Johan Carl Stiernhöök (1670-1719) var svensk resident i Wien och agerade mycket självständigt vid underhandlingarna efter kungens hemkomst från Turkiet rörande kejsarens eventuella medling mellan Karl XII och hans fiender. Stiernhöök ogillade Karl XII:s stolta attityd och struntade i kungens direktiv vid sina kontakter med kejsaren. Han tillhörde även Goertz hätskaste fiender och ådrog sig föga förvånande snart både Goertz och kungens starka ogillande

        De rebus gestis Antonj Caraphaei Libri Quatuor Excellentissimo Domino Hadriano Caraphaeo inscripti.

      Napoli, Excudebat Felix Musca, 1716. 4to. Nice contemporary Italian full vellum binding with gilt title to back. A bit of soiling and averall wear. Internally occasional brownspotting, but overall a very nice copy. Title-page in red an black, full-page engraved portrait of Hadrianus Carafa, full-page engraved portrait of Antonius Carafa, six beautiful large engraved vignettes, and six beautiful large engraved initials. Tissue-guards inserted later. (2) ff. (being half-title and title-page), portrait, (12) ff. (dedication), portrait, 501 pp.. The very rare first edition of Vico's intriguing account of the deeds of Antonius Carafa, the historical biography which the highly influential Enlightenment philosopher, historian, and jurist was commissioned to write about the important seventeenth-century statesman. The work is more than a beautifully printed work by a highly influential thinker about an important Italian statesman, though; it is a rich and enlightened reconstruction of many major historical events and aspects of the contemporary history of Vico, mixed with numerous of Vico's personal opinions. As such, the work is of the greatest interest to historians, philosophers, jurists and political historians, as well as anyone interested in early modern European history; it furthermore gives us a unique insight into the thought of a thinker, whose ideas and opinions, both philosophical and political, have greatly influenced the likes of Marx, Hegel, Goethe, etc. The commission of the work is also that which caused Vico to become interested in the question of the law of nations, and that which led him to discover Grotius' "On the Law of War and Peace" (1625), which came to influence him greatly. The biography of Antonio Carafa is the next major work that Vico writes after his magnum opus, the "Scienza Nouva". "The life of Carafa was a commissioned work, undertaken at the request of Don Adriano Carafa, the nephew of the subject and a former pupil of Vico, and for its composition access to the family archives was given him. It appeared in 1716, in magnificent format, as Vico says "in the Dutch style", and won for its author the praise of Pope Clement XI as well as the friendship of the Italian scholar Gianvincenzo Gravina"." (Camponigri, Time & Idea: The Theory of History in Giambattista Vico, p. 22). Vico later married one of Carafa's daughters, and he has himself said of the work that it was "tempered by honour towards the subject, reverence towards the princes and the just claims of truth." (The Autobiography). Antonio Carafa (1646-1693) was a Neapolitan statesman and diplomat, who immigrated to Vienna in 1662 to serve the Holy Roman Emperor Leopold I of Habsburg, in whose service he stayed throughout most of his life. Carafa spent years at the Viennese court, familiarizing himself with the intrigues and learning the secrets of the state and the art of governing here. He became a favourite of the emperor and the Habsburg princes (Charles of Lorraine and Maximillian of Bavaria ) and came to serve as a statesman and diplomat of Leopold I in Vienna, Poland and Hungary. He kept rising through the ranks, as his military experience grew, and he was known for his courage, wisdom, strategic skills and political diplomacy. Eventually he rose to the highest rank in the Austrian military and was appointed Military Governor of, first, Upper Hungary, then Transylvania as well as General Commissary of all imperial armies on all fronts, namely the Rhine, Danube, and Po; he was integral in Leopold's wars against the Ottoman Empire. Towards the end of his career, he came to suffer from infamy, according to Vico due to the jealousy of his rivals, and he was dubbed the "butcher of Eperjes"; he was thus sent back to Vienna, where he died shortly after.The present text by Giambattista Vico (1668-1744) is a historiographical work which sets out to delineate the biography of Antonio Carafa, a statesman much admired by Vico. The work touches on numerous events, in which the important statesman and diplomat was involved, and Vico thus describes in detail, from a contemporary point of view, many highly interesting historical events. These events include THE ALLIANCE'S WAR AGAINST THE TURKS BETWEEN 1683 AND 1694, THE SECOND ENGLISH REVOLUTION OF 1688-1689, THE WAR OF THE AUGSBURG LEAGUE, etc., etc. These events are also valuably commented upon by Vico, for whom they were contemporary and vivid. For a modernist, the present work possesses a rare source of information on a number of important European events, presented in the most interesting manner, by one of modern Europe's great thinkers, and it is thus probably of greater interest to us today than it ever has been. "In his own time, Vico was relatively unknown, but from the nineteenth century onwards his views found a wider audience and today his influence is widespread in the humanities and social sciences." (SEP). In 2004 the first English translation of the work appeared, bearing witness to the renewed interest in this important and interesting work by one of the leading Enlightenment philosophers. "Vico's next major work [after the "Scienza Nuova"], "The Life Of Antonio Carafa" (1716), although somewhat of a by-way in the development of his general thought, contains one relevant point. Whereas, in "On the Study Methods of our Time", he had emphasised the importance of wisdom, virtue and eloquence in training the intellectual to guide the masses, in his biography of Carafa he attributes Carafa's success to his natural, rather than acquired, shrewdness and suggests that formal culture is likely to hinder rather than to promote effective action. This was not a view that he was to maintain in its generalised form, but it is indicative of decreasing confidence in the capacity of the intellectual to bring about political well-being by the methods advocated earlier. At this point it is necessary to turn to the importance of Grotius's influence on Vico, though this is a highly debated matter. Vico may have known something about Grotius's doctrines, probably through discussion, as early as 1708, but as part of his preparation for "The Life of Antonio Carafa", he had undertaken a thorough reading of "The Law of War and Peace"." (Introduction to Vico's "The First New Science" by Leon Pompa, p. XXIII).First editions by Vico are generally of great scarcity, and the present work is no exception, as it is almost impossible to find

Den har tidigare huvudsakligen tillskrivits Samuel Pufendorf, men han är ej författaren konstaterar Bo Lindberg i SBL. Den har även attribuerats till Samuels bror Esaias, Lapiquetière och Mauritz Wellingk. "Les anecdotes de Suède" är ett kritiskt inlägg mot både högadeln och enväldet. I dess historieskrivning kritiseras aristokratins strävanden att försvaga kungamakten och påstår t.ex. att Johan Gyllenstierna planlagt enväldets införande enbart för att göra kungamakten så förhatlig att ett högadligt oligopol skulle kunna införas. Författarens eget ideal är ett arvrike med begränsade monarkistiska befogenheter (Björn Asker i SBL). Texten har i sin slutliga form troligen tillkommit i slutet av 1690-talet, men tryckts först 1716, efter Olivekrantz död. Möjligen är det fråga om en grundtext av Olivekrantz som sedan kompletterats av den okända utgivaren. Johan Olivekrantz (1633-1707) hette före adlandet Johan Larsson Paulin, och var son till ärkebiskopen Laurentius Paulinus Gothus. Han var en lärd jurist och gjorde en snabb karriär, dels inom diplomatin, dels inom Kanslikollegiet. Bland annat representerade han Sverige vid förhandlingarna i Nijmegen. Hans karriär avbröts dock 1680 och under enväldet hade han endast mindre uppdrag men fortfarande ett stort inofficiellt inflytande, inte minst inom utrikespolitiken. Det finns förstås åtskilliga greve Dohna som skulle kunnat ha använt boken och gjort anteckningarna. Carlander nämner Carl Fredrik Dohna på Tidö (1722-84) men troligen är anteckningarna något äldre. Kanske Fredrik Christoffer (1664-1727) som år 1720 var svensk generallöjtnant och från 1722 president i wismarkska tribunalet. Historikern Carl Gustaf Nordins (1749-1812) boksamling var enligt Pehr Tham dåtidens största privatbibliotek inom historieämnet. Det såldes på auktion 1815
