        The Holy Bible, containing the Old Testament and the New: Newly Translated out of the Original Tongues: And Hath the former Translations Diligently Compared and Revised

      John Baskett, Oxford 1717 - (20 3/4 x 13 1/2 inches). Engraved frontispiece in vol. I, engraved vignettes on general title and New Testament title, engraved head- and tail-piece vignettes, and engraved initials. Contemporary black panelled morocco gilt, the covers with gilt roll-tooled borders around a series of concentric gilt panels with ornamental leafy sprays and corner-pieces, central lozenge gilt composed of similar small tooling, spines richly gilt in nine compartments, morocco lettering piece in the second compartment, gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers and gilt edges (discreet expert repairs at top and bottom of joints) Provenance: Sir John Hynde Cotton (armorial bookplate); William Charles Smith (armorial bookplate); Maggs Bros., catalogue 1212, Bookbinding in the British Isles, item 86 First edition of the monumental, splendidly illustrated "Vinegar Bible" -- a "magnificent edition" (Darlow & Moule) here ruled in red and handsomely bound. Commonly known as the "Vinegar Bible" from the misprint "the parable of the vinegar" for "vineyard" in the headline above Luke, Chapter 20. While a contemporary lambasted Baskett for this and other typographical errors in the text, calling it a "Baskett-ful of errors," Oxford historian of printing Harry Carter states that "only Baskerville's Bible is its equal among English Bibles for beauty of type, impression, and paper" (The History of the Oxford University Press, 1975, I, p. 171) In 1709 John Baskett purchased the exclusive royal patent to print Bibles in England, control of which his family retained until 1799. This magnificent edition of the Bible is among Baskett's most important works, highly regarded for its large, elegant type; its 60 striking copper-engraved vignette head- and tailpieces; and its many delicately engraved historiated initials. Two distinct varieties occur. This copy is Darlow & Moule's issue A, with additional engraved general title page depicting Moses writing the first words of Genesis (here bound as frontispiece); vigenette view of Oxford on the general title page; and vignette title page for New Testament depicting the Annunciation, dated 1716. The present example is noted for both its lovely contemporary black morocco gilt binding and for being ruled in red throughout. Similar bindings on this edition of the bible are noted in both the Wardington Collection and in Mirjam Foot's Studies in the History of Bookbinding p. 409. Darlow & Moule 735; Herbert 942.

Frontispiece: Arab Shekh - From the Tribe of the Beni Koreish // Robert Wood (1717 9 September 1771) was a British traveller, classical scholar, civil servant and politician. He was the son of the Revd James Wood of Summerhill, County Meath and educated at Glasgow University (1732) and the Middle Temple (1736). In 1750-1751 Wood travelled around the Levant with two wealthy young Oxford scholars James Dawkins and John Bouverie (who died of a fever early in their expedition) and an Italian draftsman Giovanni Battista Borra. Their primary goal was to explore the Troad and locate the key sites mentioned by Homer. Moving south into Syria, they then took careful measurements and drawings of the ancient Roman ruins of Palmyra and Baalbek. The results of these were published in 1753 and 1757 in both English and French editions and were among the first systematic publications of ancient buildings. Both works were of great influence on neoclassical architecture in Britain, Continental Europe and America. From 1753 to 1756, Wood was the tutor and travelling companion (or Bear-leader as such men were known at the time) of the young Duke of Bridgewater, the richest peer in England, in making the Grand Tour. In 1756 he was appointed Under Secretary to the Secretary of State for the Southern Department, who was initially Pitt the Elder. It was to Wood that Granville famously quoted an appropriate passage from Homer's Iliad as he signed the Treaty of Paris on his deathbed in 1763 (Wood published an essay on Homer in 1765, which stated that true knowledge can come only after one has had an opportunity to evaluate one's own society in relation to others). In 1764, following the instructions of Secretary of State Halifax, Wood acted under a general warrant to seize the papers of John Wilkes, who subsequently won damages of 1000 from him for trespass. In 1761 Wood was elected Member of Parliament for the Duke of Bridgewater's pocket borough of Brackley in Northamptonshire, which he continued to represent until his death. He was also Master of the Revels in Ireland, and at one point it was rumoured that he would be appointed Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland, but the Lord Lieutenant objected to Wood's "public and private character" as well as his "mean birth", and the appointment was never made. Tomb of Robert Wood, Putney Old Burial Ground After his death on 9 September 1771, Wood was buried near his home in Putney at Putney Old Burial Ground, in a white marble sarcophagus engraved with an epitaph written by Horace Walpole. He had married Ann, the daughter of Thomas Skottowe, with whom he had two sons and a daughter. One son Robert was also an MP. (Wikipedia)___________________________ James Bruce (14 December 1730 27 April 1794) was a Scottish traveller and travel writer who spent more than a dozen years in North Africa and Ethiopia, where he traced the origins of the Blue Nile. James Bruce was born at the family seat of Kinnaird, Stirlingshire, and educated at Harrow School and Edinburgh University, and began to study for the bar, but his marriage to the daughter of a wine importer and merchant resulted in him entering that business instead. His wife died in October 1754, within nine months of marriage, and Bruce thereafter travelled in Portugal and Spain as part of the wine trade. The examination of oriental manuscripts at the Escorial in Spain led him to the study of Arabic and Ge'ez and determined his future career. In 1758 his father's death placed him in possession of the estate of Kinnaird. On the outbreak of war with Spain in 1762 he submitted to the British government a plan for an attack on Ferrol. His suggestion was not adopted, but it led to his selection by the 2nd Earl of Halifax for the post of British consul at Algiers, with a commission to study the ancient ruins in that country, in which interest had been excited by the descriptions sent home by Thomas Shaw (16941751), who was consular chaplain at Algiers. Having spent six months in Italy studying antiquities, Bruce reached Algiers in March 1763. The whole of his time was taken up with his consular duties at the piratical court of the dey, and he was kept without the assistance promised. But in August 1765, a successor in the consulate having arrived, Bruce began his exploration of the Roman ruins in Barbary. Having examined many ruins in eastern Algeria, he travelled by land from Tunis to Tripoli, and at Ptolemaida took passage for Candia but was shipwrecked near Benghazi and had to swim ashore. He eventually reached Crete, and sailing thence to Sidon, travelled through Syria, visiting Palmyra and Baalbek. Throughout his journeyings in Barbary and the Levant, Bruce made careful drawings of the many ruins he examined. He also acquired a sufficient knowledge of medicine to enable him to pass in the East as a physician. In June 1768 he arrived at Alexandria, having resolved to endeavour to discover the source of the Nile, which he believed to rise in Ethiopia. At Cairo he gained the support of the Mamluk ruler, Ali Bey. After visiting Thebes, where he entered the tomb of Ramesses III, KV11, he crossed the desert to Kosseir, where he embarked in the dress of a Turkish sailor. He reached Jidda in May 1769, and after a stay in Arabia he recrossed the Red Sea and landed at Massawa, then in possession of the Turks, on 19 September. He reached Gondar, then the capital of Ethiopia 14 February 1770, where he was well received by the n?gusä nägäst Tekle Haymanot II, by Ras Mikael Sehul, the real ruler of the country, by Wozoro Aster, wife of the Ras (whom Bruce calls "Esther"), and by the Ethiopians generally. His fine presence (he was 6-foot 4 inches high), his knowledge of Ge'ez, his excellence in sports, his courage, resource and self-esteem, all told in his favour among a people who were in general distrustful of all foreigners. He stayed in Ethiopia for two years, gaining knowledge which enabled him subsequently to present an accurate picture of Ethiopian life. Determined to reach the source of the Blue Nile, and after recovering from malaria, in October 1770 Bruce decided to set out again. This time he travelled with his own small party, which included Balugani and a Greek named Strates. The final march was made on 4 November 1770. Late in the afternoon, after having climbed to 9,500 feet, Bruce's party came upon a rustic church, and the guide, pointing beyond it, indicated a little swamp with a hillock rising from the centre. That, he declared, was the source of the Nile. On 14 November 1770 he reached Gish Abay, the source of the Lesser Abay. When they reached the springs at Gish, James Bruce determined to be merry, picked up a half coconut shell he used as a drinking cup. Filling it from the spring he oblidged Strates to drink a toast to "His Majesty King George III and a long line of princes" and another to "Catherine, Empress of all the Russians" this last was a gesture to Strates' Greek origin, since Catherine the Great was just then at war with the Turks in the Aegean Sea. More toasts followed. Though admitting that the White Nile was the larger stream, Bruce argued that the Blue Nile was the Nile of the ancients and thus he was the discoverer of its source. Setting out from Gondar in December 1771, Bruce made his way, in spite of enormous difficulties, by Sennar to Nubia, being the first European to trace the Blue Nile to its confluence with the White Nile. He was detained in Al Qadarif (which he calls "Teawa") by its governor Fidele, until a combination of cunning, diplomacy and a show of force by his friend the Ethiopian governor of Ras el Fils induced Fidele to release him. Once in Sennar he found himself detained there, and on the night of 25 August the house he was staying in was attacked by thieves, whom Bruce for good reason suspected to be acting with the knowledge, if not on the orders of King Ismai'l. As he and his companions crossed the desert on the western side of the bend of the Nile, they came across the corpses of the caravan of the Muslim dignitary Mahomet Towash they had hoped to travel with despite his status, they had been waylaid, robbed, and killed by the local tribesmen. On 29 November 1772 he reached Aswan, presently returning to the desert to recover his journals and his baggage, which had been abandoned in consequence of the death of all his camels. Cairo was reached in January 1773, and in March Bruce arrived in France, where he was welcomed by Buffon and other savants. He came to London in June 1774, and was interviewed by James Boswell, who published a lengthy account of his travels in the London Magazine. Offended by the incredulity with which his story was received, Bruce retired to his home at Kinnaird. It was not until 1790 that, urged by his friend Daines Barrington, he published his Travels to Discover the Source of the Nile, In the Years 1768, 1769, 1770, 1771, 1772 and 1773, but was assailed by other travellers as being unworthy of credence. The substantial accuracy of his Ethiopian travels has since been demonstrated, and it is considered that he made a real addition to the geographical knowledge of his day. (Wikipedia)

First edition of this catalogue which rarely appears on the market. Fabricius (1644-1729), was a leading classical philologist and inspector of the schools of the Duchy of Brunswick-Luneburg. This is "a biobibliographical dictionary. It is a roughly classified list of books owned by Johannes Fabricius, with brief but very valuable accounts of the life and writings of the various authors. Since larger and more recent reference works often do not mention these authors, who were chiefly minor sixteenth- and seventeenth-century scholars, Fabricius is likely to give helpful information. Fabricius was obviously more interested in giving this information than in making a catalogue of his library, for the Historia does not claim to be a complete catalogue."Taylor, Book Catalogues, p. 7(& see pp. 11, 108, 186, & 204).

Di tale vocabolario erano stati tirati 40 ff. quando, per decreto del Maestro del S.cro Palazzo, la stampa ne fu sospesa, l'opera proibita e l'Autore esiliato per ordine del Pontefice. Lo stesso decreto venne pubblicato a Firenze dall'Inquisitor Generale e gli Accademici della Crusca fecero abbruciare il libro per mano del carnefice, al suono della campana di Palazzo. L'edizione è stata quasi completamente sequestrata e i pochi esempl. sfuggiti alle fiamme e al sequestro sono ricercatissimi; non hanno frontespizio ed arrivano solo alla p. CCCXX. Se ne fecero due edizioni contemporaneamente: una a Roma, l'altra a Lucca. La prima si arrestò al foglio 2 q; la seconda al foglio Rr 2, la nostra. All'interno del libro sono stati trovati due fogli manoscritti, d'epoca, che narrano la storia del volume, uno è incollato alla fine del vol. l'altro è sciolto.

        Paris, Histoire de l'Église du Japon

      François Montalant 1717 - 2 volumes. [28]+659+[11] pages with 4 plates and index; [10]+678+[6] pages with 4 plates (one folding) and index. Quarto (10" x 8") bound in half leather with raised spine bands in gilt lettering to spine over marbled boards. (Streit-Dindinger VI, 1418.) Second edition of a 1689 history of missions to Japan prefaced with a general account of the country. Jean Crasset was an ascetical writer, born at Dieppe, France, 3 January, 1618 and died at Paris, 4 January, 1692. He entered the Society of Jesus in 1638, became professor of humanities and philosophy, was director for twenty-three years of a famous sodality of men connected with the professed house of the Jesuits in Paris, and was also a successful preacher. Crasset is the author of many ascetical works, among which are: Methode d'oraison; Considérationes chrétiennes pour tous les jours de l'année; La chrétienne in soli tude; Dissertation sur les oracles des Sibylles, which was vigorously attacked; Entretiens pour la jeunesse. He also published in 1689 a Historie de l'église du japon which has been translated into several languages but which is considered inferior to that of Charlevoix. Crasset's history was scarcely original, for it was drawn in great part from the work which Father Solier had issued in 1627; he merely retouched the style and continued the narrative from 1624 to 1658. The objection is made that the work lacks precision, is heavy, and is crowded with details. The author attributed the origin of the persecution of 1597 to the imprudence of the friars in making their religious ceremonies public. There is a posthumous work of his entitled La foy victorieuse de l'infidélite et du libertinage. On 9 September, 1656, the Bishop of Orléans issued an interdict against him for having in one of his sermons charged several ecclesiastics with sustaining the propositions condemned by the Bull of Innocent X, Cum occasione (31 May, 1653). The interdict was removed in the following February. Condition: Nicely rebound in half leather. Contents toned and damp-stained, St. Charles Borromeo Seminary stamp on titles else a very good set.

        Erste Gründe der philosophischen Sitten-Lehre. Andere und vermehrte Auflage [with 'Erste Gründe der natürlichen Gottesgelahrheit nebst der philosophischen und theoretischen Abhandlung von der Stadt Gottes aus dem Lateinischen des Herrn Hofrath Darjes in das Deutsche übersetzet]. Jena: Christian Heinrich Cuno, 1755.

      - Second edition of a work by J.G. Darjes (1717&#150;91) first published in 1750; a third edition followed in 1762 and a fourth in 1782. The appended translation from the Latin seems to be particularly rare, or at least very seldom recorded on library databases (WorldCat finds only 2 in Germany and 1 at Harvard). Kant had a copy of exactly this edition in his personal library (Warda, Immanuel Kants Bücher, X, 26). 'His peculiar name &#145;Darjes&#146; resulted from the latinization of the old name of the family, von Bock (ram = Aries). In 1735, Darjes had great success as professor of philosophy in Jena . In his courses, he turned all rules upside down. Instead of dictating, he allowed his students to challenge anything he said. It is said that he had more than 10,000 auditors and that his students used to sit on the stairs in order to hear his courses, of which he held as many as six per day. The more Darjes looked at the foundations of Wolffian theory, the more he doubted. Wolff appeared to him full of contradictions and his system far from true. His polemic stance against Wolff became therefore progressively more explicit. We can also see the increasing influence of Crusius in this transformation. It seemed better to change his area of concern. Thus Darjes devoted himself to jurisprudence. When teaching natural law, he followed Hugo Grotius and Johann Jakob Lehmann rather than Wolff or Pufendorf. In 1744, he was appointed full professor of morality and politics. In 1750, he published the Erste Gründe der philosophischen Sitten-lehre, which caused a number of disputes and ran to as many as seven editions' (Dictionary of Eighteenth-Century German Philosophers). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Large 8vo, engraved frontispiece, 416, [57], [iv], 204, [18] pp., contemporary boards quite rubbed, title-page printed in red and black, isolated contemporary annotations, internally very good.

      1717. (6), 360, (16) SS. Titel in rot und schwarz gedruckt. Mit gest. Frontispiz. (Beigebunden) II: Deventer, Hendrik van. Neues Hebammen-Licht, bey welchen die Hebammen-Kunst und was darzu gehöret durch geschickte Handgriffe aufrichtig gelehret wird. Jena, Heinrich Christoph Cröcker, 1717. (12), 489, (23) SS. Titel in rot und schwarz gedruckt. Mit gest. Frontispiz und 33 (statt 37) Kupfertafeln. Pergamentband der Zeit auf 3 durchzogenen Bünden mit hs. Rückentitel. Dreiseitiger gesprenkelter Rotschnitt. 8vo. I: Seltene erste selbständige deutsche Ausgabe (erstmals 1597 in Paris als "Opusculum physiologum & anatomicum" gedruckt), aus dem Lateinischen übersetzt von Christoph von Hellwig (1663-1721). "In 1595 Pineau demonstrated the vestigial foramen ovale in the adult heart, settling the question of the perviousness of the septum of the heart [...] [In 1597] he published this study in a frank treatise on virginity and the ways of losing it" (Garrison/M.). "The German edition was prohibited by the magistrates. The chief interest of the book now relates to the supposed parturition of the pubic bones during parturition [...] Pineau was a lithotomist and had the Collot family secret" (Osler). Zuvor 1626 als Teil der deutschen Übersetzung von Louise Bourgeois Boursiers "Hebammen Buch" erschienen. - II: Zweite deutsche Ausgabe von Deventers Hauptwerk "Operationes chirurgicae novum lumen exhibentes obstetricantibus" (EA Leiden 1701; zugleich in niederländischer Sprache), eines der wichtigsten Werke in der Geschichte der Geburtshilfe. "Gives the first accurate description of the female pelvis and its deformities, and the effect of the latter in complicating labour" (Garrison/M.). Van Deventer (1651-1724) würdigt hier erstmals völlig die Wichtigkeit des knöchernen Beckens, insbesondere der Beckenachse, für den Geburtsvorgang; musterhaft ist das Verfahren, das er den Hebammen bei natürlichen Geburten anempfiehlt. Erheblich verfeinert sind die Diagnose der abnormen Kindslagen sowie die Technik der geburtshilflichen Eingriffe, bei denen Deventer dem manuellen Verfahren gegenüber dem instrumentellen bis zur äußersten Grenze den Vorzug gab; dennoch bereicherte er letztere durch eine der wichtigsten Erfindungen in der Geburtshilfe überhaupt: die Geburtszange. "Deventer ist unstreitig der hervorragendste und wissenschaftlich gebildetste Geburtshelfer seiner Zeit, denn seine Forschungen waren nicht blos bahnbrechend, sondern bilden heute noch [...] die Basis, auf der die moderne Geburtshilfe ruht" (Hirsch). - Es fehlen die Kupfer 5, 10, 12 und 14; das Frontispiz und 2 weitere Kupfer mit größeren Ausrissen und Fehlstellen; mehrere Kupfer im Rand vom Beschnitt erfaßt (Verlust der rechten Rahmenlinie). - Aus der Sammlung des schwedischen Polarforschers und Mineralogen Gösta Bodman (1875-1960), als Meteorologe Teilnehmer der Schwedischen Antarktisexpedition 1901-04, mit seinem hübschen, darauf bezüglichen Exlibris (Pinguin vor Forschungsschiff) am vorderen Innendeckel. I: Hayn/Gotendorf IX, 460. Vgl. Blake 205. Wellcome IV, 388. Garrison/Morton 802. Waller 7450ff. Osler 3679. - II: Blake 118. Waller 2420. Hirsch II, 173. Vgl. Wellcome II, 460. Garrison/Morton 6253.

Körperschaftsrecht, Strafrecht, Eherecht, Erbrecht, Eigentumsrecht, Vertragsrecht und vor allem Verfahrensrecht waren auch systematisch Gebiete des kirchlichen Rechts. Die gut ausgebaute und bestens funktionierende Rechtsprechung, die stets auch mit ausgezeichnet ausgebildeten Juristen besetzt war, prägte das Abendland und hatte auch Vorbildfunktion. Die Materien des kirchlichen Rechts waren [bis ins] 18. Jahrhundert Gegenstand des Rechtsunterrichts" (Auvermann & Keip, Kat. Mundus Iuris, S. 22f). Enthält ferner die Einführung des Giovanni Paolo Lancellotti (1522-90) in das Kirchenrecht. - Papierbedingt teils etwas braunfleckig; der Einband berieben; Ecken und Kanten bestoßen; Kapitale lädiert.
