        Secrete Resolutien van de edele groot mog. heeren Staten van Holland en Westvriesland genomen zedert den aanvang der bedieninge van den Heer Johan de Witt als Raadpensionaris van den zelven Lande en door denseljden Heer onderscheiden Hyck van de Resolutien van Consideratie, die op zich zelfs een bysonder Werk uitmaken, by een vergadert : Beginnende met den Jaere 1653 en eindigende met dem Jaere 1668.

      Utrecht: by Willem vande Water 4to (25 cm; 10"). 2 vols. I: [4] ff., 622 (i.e., 620) pp., [6] ff. II: [1] f., 687, [1 (blank)] pp., [4] ff.. 1717 Johan de Witt was one of Europe's greatest statesmen of the 17th century: Appointed the "councillor pensionary" (i.e., the political leader) of Holland (1653–72), he successfully led the United Provinces in the First and Second Anglo-Dutch wars (1652–54, 1665–67) while at the same time effectively consolidating the country's position as a formidable commercial and naval power. The present work publishes the resolutions that the States General secretly reached during Witt's years leading the republic, matters being related that would have led to political, diplomatic, or economic trouble or reprisals if publicly known in "real time." Vol. I covers the period 26 February 1653 to 17 December 1658 and II from 17 January 1659 to 20 December 1668. Provenance: From the collection of Frank Marshall Vanderhoof (American scholar, university librarian, private collector; 1919–2005). Contemporary speckled calf, round spine with raised bands; plain sides and gilt spine extra; bindings rubbed, old stains from a liquid on upper areas near joints of all covers, front joints (outside) lightly cracked and boards holding very strongly. A 19th-century reader's notes on front free endpaper of vol. I. Some considerable browning of paper, as is not uncommon with this work. => Sound and complete.

        Lettres Patentes en Forme D'Edit, Portant Etablissement d'une Compagnie de Commerce sous le nom de Compagnie d'Occident. Donné à Paris au mois d'Aoust 1717.

      Paris: Chez la Veuve Saugrain & Pierre Prault, à l'entrée du Quay de Gêvres, du côté du Pont au Change, au Paradis, 1717. No Binding. Fine. Quarto, 12 pages, a fine copy with wide untrimmed margins. This is the charter of John Law's famous Mississippi Company, the Compagnie d'Occident (also known as the Compagnie du Mississippi), was established in 1717 by the Scottish financier John Law and changed its name to the Compagnie des Indes in May 1719, had a monopoly over trade in Louisiana from 1717 to 1731, as well as a monopoly over Canadian beaver exports from 1718 to 1760. As early as 1715, John Law had put to the Regent a plan for the economic and financial recovery of France, the "Système," which was at first refused but which Law finally succeeded in putting into place progressively. After founding the Banque Générale Privée, which developed the use of paper money, in May 1716, he created the Compagnie d'Occident, which received its letters patent in August 1717 (the present item) and was granted a monopoly over trade in Louisiana. The area covered by the company included the whole of the Mississippi valley, the Illinois Country becoming part of Louisiana through a decree in September 1717. The company's obligations were vast: it was to transport 6,000 colons and 3,000 black slaves over twenty-five years; it was also responsible for expenditure related to religion and defense. Over the following years, the Compagnie d'Occident took over all the other large French trading companies, as well as all large sources of state revenue. Farms were to have brought the company the financial support necessary for the exploitation of its immense colonial domain. Nevertheless, these purchases initially forced it to issue new shares, which the general public bought with banknotes. The Banque Générale had been turned into a Banque Royale in December 1718; in August 1719, an edict was issued according to which the state's debt would be written off through the refunding of loans and offices in banknotes. Because the investment market was too rigid, the new holders of banknotes invested them by buying shares in the Compagnie des Indes. From May 1719, the share value began to increase, and this feverish period of investment, fueled by intense propaganda, continued to grow, while the bank continued to issue bank notes that did not correspond to a metal standard. The "Système" thus found itself at the mercy of a shift in public opinion that took place in the first months of 1720. The inability to refund all investors led to bankruptcy. After July 1720, the "Système" was liquidated: the bank was closed, the original financial and fiscal organization was reintroduced, and the Compagnie des Indes was henceforth only responsible for any trade activity under the tight control of the monarchy. While its actions in Louisiana between 1717 and 1720 had helped to give the colony stability, the company then imposed destructive cuts. Eventually, after the massacre of the Natchez in 1729, the company returned Louisiana to the Crown in 1731. It retained the monopoly over exports of Canadian beaver products until the fall of New France. Wroth and Annan 603, one of several issues of this decree. See Sabin 40716, citing the issue printed by the Imprimerie Royale, "Du Pratz characterizes it as 'A very scarce pamphlet.'" Maggs, French Colonisation of America, 98, listed a variant, Wroth and Annan 601 at £ 10 10s.

        Relation d'un Voyage du Levant fait par ordre du Roy, contenant l'histoire ancienne & moderne de plusieurs Isles de l'Archipel, de Constantinople, des Côtes de la Mer Noire, de l'Armenie, de la Georgie, des frontieres de Perse & de l'Asie Mineure avec les plans de villes... enrichie de descriptions & figures d'un grand nombre de Plantes rares, de diverses Animaux; et de plusieurs observations touchant l'histoire naturelle.

      Paris, de l'Imprimerie Royale, 1717. 2 volumes. 4to (255 x 195mm). pp. (18), (2, blank), 544; pp. (4), 526, (40, index), with 150 (some folded) engraved plates. Contemporary calf, richly gilt decorated spines with gilt lettered label (hinges cracked but firm, spines somewhat worn). First edition. "The botanist Pitton de Tournefort was sent on a mission to the Levant by Louis XIV in 1700. He was accompanied by the artist Claude Aubriet and the doctor Gundelsheimer. Pitton de Tournefort travelled extensively in the Archipelago, visiting most of the islands in the Cyclades. He also spent a considerable period in Crete before going to Constantinople and Asia Minor, the coasts of the Black Sea and then overland through Armenia to Persia. The travellers returned to Paris in June 1702. The text takes the form of letters to M. de Pontchartrain, who sponsored Pitton's mission. The very fine plates are after Aubriet's drawings, and illustrate costumes, botanical and zoological specimens, views and maps" (Blackmer catalogue). Joseph Pitton de Tournefort (1656-1707) was a French botanist and student of Pierre Magnol and professor at the Collège Royale in Paris. Tournefort was the first to describe the common azalea and rhododendron, as well as other plants he collected during this journey. The genus Tournefortia of the Boraginaceae was named after him. Tournefort notes not only plants, but geographical features, antiquities, the people he encounters, and their way of life, agriculture and industry, providing fascinating insights into areas then little known in western Europe. The number of plates varies of the present book as in 2 instances 2 plates are printed on a folded leaf, and these plates are sometimes counted as one or two. In our case they are counted as one plate.//B.M. (Nat. Hist.) V, p. 2128.

        Lettres Patentes Du Roy, Portant Reglement Pour le Commerce des Colonies Françoises. Données à Paris au mois d'Avril 1717.

      Paris?, 1717. No Binding. Fine. small quarto, 11, [1] pp., a fine copy. This is the most important decree concerning French trade with her colonies, on which all subsequent regulations were based. This decree remained in force for a considerable time, suffering periodic amendments, to suit varying economic and political changes. Article I appoints the following ports as trading centers with America: Calais, Dieppe, Le Havre, Roüen, Honfleur, St. Malo, Morlaix, Brest, Nantes, La Rochelle, Bordeaux, Bayonne and Cette. Article II declares that "Toutes les denrées & marchandaises, soit du crû ou de la fabrique du Royaume, mesme la vaisselle d'argent, ou autres ouvrages d'Orfeverie; les vins & eaux-de-vie de Guyenne, ou autres Provinces destinez pour etre transportez aux Isles & Colonies Françoises, seront exempts de tous droits de sortie & d'entrée, ." and the same applies according to the next article, to the ships' munitions and provisions. By article X goods coming from abroad to be shipped to the French colonies pay the "droits d'entrée" into France but are exempt from the "droits de sortie," except in the case of foreign salt beef, which is exempt from both. As regards goods coming from America and destined for foreign countries, these also pay no dues, on condition that the necessary declarations are made and that the goods awaiting the conclusion of such sales are warehoused in any of the ports mentioned above, except St. Malo, Morlaix, Brest and Nantes. Five classes of goods may be imported for sale abroad at these four harbours as well, namely "sucres terrez ou cassonades, indigo, gingemvre, rocou & cacao provenant des Isle & Colonies Françoises," to be transported by land along certain specifically defined routes. The following are the Customs duties levied on imports from the Colonies for consumption in France: "Les Moscovades ou Sucres bruts, le cent pésant, Deux livres dix sols. Les Sucres terrez ou Cassonades, le cent pésant Huit livres. L'Indigo, cent sols le cent pésant. Le Gingenvre, quinze sols. Le Cotton en Laine, trente sols. Le Rocou, Deux livres dix sols. Les Confitures, Cinq livres. La Caffe ou Canefice, une livre. Le Cacao, Dix livres . Les Cuirs secs & en Poil, cinq sols de la Piece, Le caret ou Ecaille de Tortue de toutes sortes, Sept livres du cent pésant," this always in addition to any local dues. All goods from the Colonies had to pass through France, or at least a French port, and heavy penalties were imposed in cases where goods were shipped direct from the Colonies even to some neighboring foreign land, nor were ships destined for the Colonies allowed to load wine or other goods in any foreign country, not even in Madeira. This decree contains a number of other purely administrative regulations connected with French colonial trade. By a later decree these regulations were made to apply also to Canada. Unrecorded variant issue of Wroth and Annan 592. See Maggs, French Colonisation of America, 94 for their description of another variant issue. (Their price was £25 in 1936).

        Vieni o Caro che senza il tuo core. Aria from Rinaldo. Musical manuscript. England, ca 1717 or later. Scored for soprano and keyboard

      This setting not in HWV (Rinaldo is HWV 7a and 7b; reference to new, unspecified arias for 1717 production, p. 109). Not in the Halle Halleische Hndel-Ausgabe or the Handel-Gesellschaft edition. One MS copy at the Foundling Museum, London (part of Gerald Coke Handel Collection; RISM no. 806930963). Allegedly published in Additional Favourite Songs in the Opera of Rinaldo as they are perform'd at the Kings Theatre Hay-Market by J. Walsh, London (?1731); however, the extant copies of that publication do not the present setting of the aria. Otherwise probably unpublished; sound recordings exist. Possibly part of Richard Divall's unpublished edition of the opera (MS at the National Library of Australia). According to George Frideric Handel: Collected Documents, vol. 1: 1609-1725, ed. Donald Burrows, Helen Coffey, John Greenacombe, and Anthony Hicks (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2013), Handel newly composed the aria on the occasion of the revival of Rinaldo on January 5, 1717 as an insert (act 2, no. 3) for the soprano Anastasia Robinson as Almirena. The aria is not related to the bass aria "Vieni o cara" from the same opera (act 1, no. 7) as sometimes claimed. The title of the present manuscript either suggests that the manuscript originally included all eight additions to the opera or that it was copied from Walsh's publication with the same title. Apparently an unrecorded early source.. Folio (298 x 240 mm). 4 pp. (one bifolium). Watermark "IV"; presumably the countermark to a "bend" watermark . Notated in brown ink on 12-stave paper. No ascriptions. Singer not identified. "8 Aditionall[!] Songs in Rinaldo" at the upper margin of the first page in scribe's hand. Three staves per system, with the vocal line on the middle staff. Upper staff in G clef, middle staff in C1 (soprano) clef, lower staff in bass clef. D minor; 3/8 time except for first measure at the entrance of vocal part, which is in common time (and unaccompanied). Text: Vieni o Caro che senza il tuo core questo petto piu viver non fa. E se Vive e porteno d'amore che alimento di speme gli da. Small tears to margins; some soiling (dust). Lower margin slightly foxed.

[4], 263, [1], xv, [25] pp.. 1717 Uncommon first edition: the "Scope and Intendment of every Paragraph" of the Irish statutes, designed to be of use both "those that have not, as those that have these Statutes at large" (p. [iii]). The author published several other studies of Irish law, including The Office and Authority of a Justice of Peace for Ireland, The Laws of Masters and Servants in Ireland (one of the earliest English-language works to focus on the field of labor law), and The Office and Authority of Sheriffs, Under-Sheriffs, Deputies, County-Clerks, and Coroners, in Ireland.

        Neues Hebammen-Licht, bey welchen die Hebammen-Kunst und was darzu gehöret durch geschickte Handgriffe aufrichtig gelehret wird. . Aus den Lateinischen übersetzt .

      Jena, Heinrich Christoph Cröker, 1717, - kl. in-8to, Frontispiz-Kupfer + 6 Bl., Titel in Rot und Schwarz + 489 S. + 23 S. + 35 ausklappbaren teils gefalt. Kupfer-Tafeln mit 38 Figuren (ein Teil des 3. Kupfers abgerissen, einige unbedeut. falsche Falten und Fleckchen), durchgehend etwas gebräunt, neuer Halbpergament, Buntpapier auf den Deckeln, Rotschnitt. Eines der wichtigsten Werke in der Geschichte der Geburtshilfe! Die ursprüngliche niederländ. Ausgabe und die lateinische Übersetzung erschienen 1701 in Leiden. 1724 wurde noch ein 2. Teil veröffentlicht (insgesamt 144 S., ohne Fig.). Van Deventer würdigte zum ersten Male die Wichtigkeit des knöchernen Beckens, insbesondere der Beckenachse für den Geburtsvorgang in ihrem vollen Umfang. Damit begründete er die "Lehre vom Becken".Sein vorliegendes Hauptwerk ?mit seinen guten Abbildungen läßt den Fortschritt besonders deutlich erkennen. Namentlich erscheint die Diagnose der abnormen Kindslagen bei ihm erheblich verfeinert; nicht minder die Technik der geburtshilflichen Eingriffe, bei denen er dem manuellen Verfahren gegenüber dem instrumentellen bis zur äußersten Grenze den Vorzug gab. Das letztere erhielt eine seiner wichtigsten Bereicherungen durch eine Erfindung, die sich auf die Dauer als eine der wirksamsten und segensreichsten in der Geburtshilfe überhaupt erwies: die Geburtszange? (Meyer-St./Sudhoff 379 ff.). Nach Hirsch war Deventer ?der wissenschaftlich gebildetste Geburtshelfer seiner Zeit, denn seine Forschungen waren nicht nur bahnbrechend, sondern bilden bis heute noch die Basis, auf der die moderne Geburtshilfe ruht. Musterhaft ist auch das Verfahren, das er den Hebammen bei natürlichen Geburten anempfiehlt? One of the most important works in the history of obstetrics. The original Dutch edition and the Latin translating were published in 1701 in Leiden. In 1724 a second part was published. Garrison & Morton to the Dutch edition of 1701: ?This work gives the first accurate description of the female pelvis and its deformities, and the effect of the latter in complicating labour. .? Van Deventer has been rightly called the father of modern obstetrics, for his book and the interesting plates showing the various aspects of delivery and other facets of midwifery. His illustrations represented the pelvis more accurately than any other previous work. At the same time it is a pioneer work in the delineation of deformation of the spine. Copper plate showing 12 fig. in frontispiece + 6 leaves, title in red and black + 489 p. + 23 p. + 35 folding copperplates with 38 figures (part of the 3rd plate torn off), light browning throughout, half vellum binding, marbled paper somewhat rubbed, red edges.Please notify before visiting to see a book.

        Anti-Goeze ... D.i. Nothgedrungener beytraege zu den Freywilligen beytraegen des hrn. past. Goeze.

      Lessing was one of the fathers of German Idealism during the Enlightenment and among other things is remembered for having provided ?the foundation of a modern philosophy of religion" (Yasukata, Lessing's Philosophy of Religion and the German Enlightenment, p. 89). Johann Melchior Goeze (1717-86), a contemporary of Lessing, was a spiritual leader of the Lutheran Church in Germany and familiar with literature; he took up writing histories and apologetics and, because of their differing views on religion and ideals of the Enlightenment, he and Lessing entered into a debate.While the two are said to have remained cordial, the debate was so "bitter" that the Duke of Brunswick (Lessing's supporter) "intervened, silencing Lessing" (Oxford Companion to German Literature, 2nd ed., p. 554)! Printed here are Lessing's portions of the eleven exchanges in that debate.

      Hamburgi: Christiani Liebezeit 8vo (17.5 cm, 6.9"). Frontis., [22], 103, [1], 507, [5] pp.. 1717 Attractive edition of this literary and antiquarian tour of the Swabia, Helvetia, and Bavaria regions of Germany, written by a well-travelled Benedictine monk acclaimed for his scholarship. Originally published in 1683, the Iter Germanicum is here introduced by Joannes Albertus Fabricius and accompanied by an important treatise on European universities since the time of Charlemagne, by French historian Jean de Launoy (Joannes Launoius).

      [Edinburgh] Folio (30.5 cm, 12"). 4 pp.. 1717 The battle between Ruth Pollock and the Campbells (or Calders, from their estate of Cawdor) rages on, with the Calder side strenuously denying that any legitimate marriage ever took place between her and Capt. George Campbell. Pollock, who called herself Campbell's widow despite apparently never having been acknowledged as his wife during his lifetime, was claiming a portion of the estate of his father, Sir Hugh Campbell; in this response to some of her petitions, lawyer John Fleming, acting on behalf of the Campbells, discusses the merits of various claims as pertaining to estate law.

        Histoire de l'Église du Japon

      Paris: 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.

        Arte de la lengua mexicana, breves platicas de los mysterios de n. santa fee catholica, y otras para exortacion de su obligacion a los indios.

      Mexico: Por los herederos de la Viuda de Miguel de Ribera Calderon 12mo. [13], 36, [1] ff.. 1717 Mexico saw a major rebirth of scholarly interest in Nahuatl during the first half of the 18th century, and Fr. Avila was a contributor to it. In his introduction here ("Al pio lector"), he explains why, despite the existence of the works of Molina, Carochi, Ribera, and Manuel Perez (whose enthusiastic endorsement ["Sentir"] is part of the preliminaries), he has decided to write and publish this grammar: "solo quitar algunas dificultades, que he reconosido [sic] en los que aprenden por el discurso de veinte anos." The work achieves this aim well. Moreover, Fr. Avila's extremely notable introduction has much to say about the physical and spiritual condition of the Indians at the beginning of 18th century and about the economic and social debt of the Spanish population to them. Sra. Leon-Portilla points out that among the "chats" (i.e, "platicas") that form the appendix, "las destinadas a lograr una buena confesion" are of => "gran importancia." This copy => escaped the Inquisition censors who after its publication insisted that the section on folio 34r-v, "Instruccion para ensenar lo que se resive [sic] en la Hostia" be lined through. Evidence of Readership? Or, frugal management of paper? Or, something else entirely?? A singular quality of this among all the copies that we have ever seen is the presence of => two additional leaves (four pages) at the end containing => 18th-century manuscript notes in Nahuatl for a sermon on the theme of "they who acquired divine happiness" and on conducting a confession. Provenance: Sold by the Linga Library of Hamburg as a duplicate. Pencil notes of a Spanish bookseller. Recased in modern vellum with button and loop ties, some few leaves strengthened at inner margins. Last leaf of text torn in lower margin and expertly repaired, costing small portion of two letters; a bit of staining at some edges, particularly in early part of volume. Small round old stamp "BS" to front free endpaper, leaves filled with manuscript annotation at end as above. => Very good, and very interesting.

Die gleichzeitige Anwendung von dem im Corpus Juris Civilis zusammengefassten römischen Recht und des kanonischen Rechts, das in vielem auch in den außerkirchlichen Bereich (z.B. im Schuld- und Eherecht) hineinreichte, führte im Zivilrecht schließlich zur Ausprägung des das Rechtsleben in Kontinentaleuropa beherrschenden, sog. Jus commune oder Gemeinen Rechts. Deshalb war es bis zu den Zivilrechtskodifikationen des ausgehenden 18. und des 19. Jahrhunderts für Juristen üblich, wenn auch nicht verpflichtend, "beide Rechte" studiert zu haben. - Bis auf wenige kl. Flecken, sehr gutes und sauberes Exemplar. Innendeckel und Titelblatt mit Namenseinträgen zweier Vorbesitzer.

        Ways and Means Discovered to Enlarge Trade and Commerce, the Improvement of Navigation, the Advancement of the King's Revenues, plentifully supplying the poor, and for the common good of all merchants and traders whatsoever, by sea or land

      London: Printed for the author, 1717. Small quarto. 15pp. plus folding table. Minor soiling and foxing; a few leaves moderately soiled. About very good. Disbound A pamphlet proposing the establishment of a "Company to enlarge trade and commerce, employ the poor, improve navigation, advance the King's revenues; and for the common good of all merchants and traders whatsoever." Clearly hoping to benefit by the success (thus far) of the South Sea Company, it seeks to raise 200,000 pounds, "which may be managed by Directors chosen by the Subscribers, in such a manner as the south-Sea or other Companys." The proposal lays out twenty-eight articles for the government of the company, which also aims to "lend money six months or a longer time without interest, unto all merchants or importers of goods, to pay the King's customs, and for the speedy discharge of ships." Only six total copies located in ESTC and OCLC. ESTC T112523; Goldsmith 5385; Hanson 2324.

        Arte de la lengua mexicana, breves platicas de los mysterios de n santa fee catholica, y otras para exortacion de su obligacion a los indios

      Mexico: Por los herederos de la Viuda de Miguel de Ribera Calderon 12mo. [13], 36, [1] ff.. 1717 Mexico saw a major rebirth of scholarly interest in Nahuatl during the first half of the 18th century, and Fr. Avila was a contributor to it. In his introduction here ("Al pio lector"), he explains why, despite the existence of the works of Molina, Carochi, Ribera, and Manuel Perez (whose enthusiastic endorsement ["Sentir"] is part of the preliminaries), he has decided to write and publish this grammar: "solo quitar algunas dificultades, que he reconosido [sic] en los que aprenden por el discurso de veinte anos." The work achieves this aim well. Moreover, Fr. Avila's extremely notable introduction has much to say about the physical and spiritual condition of the Indians at the beginning of 18th century and about the economic and social debt of the Spanish population to them. Sra. Leon-Portilla points out that among the "chats" (i.e, "platicas") that form the appendix, "las destinadas a lograr una buena confesion" are of => "gran importancia." This copy => escaped the Inquisition censors who after its publication insisted that the section on folio 34r-v, "Instruccion para ensenar lo que se resive [sic] en la Hostia" be lined through. Evidence of Readership? Or, frugal management of paper? Or, something else entirely?? A singular quality of this among all the copies that we have ever seen is the presence of => two additional leaves (four pages) at the end containing => 18th-century manuscript notes in Nahuatl for a sermon on the theme of "they who acquired divine happiness" and on conducting a confession. Provenance: Sold by the Linga Library of Hamburg as a duplicate. Pencil notes of a Spanish bookseller. Recased in modern vellum with button and loop ties, some few leaves strengthened at inner margins. Last leaf of text torn in lower margin and expertly repaired, costing small portion of two letters; a bit of staining at some edges, particularly in early part of volume. Small round old stamp "BS" to front free endpaper, leaves filled with manuscript annotation at end as above. => Very good, and very interesting.

A rare example of a work in Portuguese printed in Vienna; the printer apologizes for any errors that slipped into the text, "mais de ignorancia que da incuria" (final page).

João V to D. Maria Anna of Austria, and to escort D. Maria Anna back to Lisbon. Telles da Silva's party travelled to London, then to Rotterdam, the Hague and Vienna. Fonseca gives descriptions of the United Provinces, England, Germany and the Court of Vienna, and also of such events as the celebrations at Vienna when Telles da Silva made his ceremonial entry.The work is dedicated to D. João Gomes da Sylva, Conde de Tarouca.Fonseca was born at Évora in 1668 and became a Jesuit in 1686. He studied humanities at Funchal before accompanying Telles da Silva as his confessor. After this trip, Fonseca travelled to Rome with P. Alvaro Cienfuegos, later a cardinal, and while there served as Procurador Geral das Missões do Oriente. He died in Rome in 1738. José Silvestre Ribeiro, quoted in Innocêncio, describes Fonseca as "um escriptor muito engraçado e escrupulosamente justiceiro."*** Innocêncio II, 376; IX, 291; @Aditamentos 138.
