        A Philosophical Inquiry concerning Human Liberty. The second Edition corrected.

      London, Printed for R. Robinson, 1717.. 8vo. (1) leaf (title), vi p. (Preface), (2) p. (Contents), 118 p. Contemporary red full morocco, gilt borders, gilt edges of covers, corners bumped, faded richly gilt spine, all edges gilt. Minor foxing. Old catalogue cutting pasted on first endpaper. The first edition was also published in 1717. Anthony Collins (1676-1719), deist, freethinker, follower and friend of Locke. The book is said to be a "powerful statement of the doctrine of necessitarianism" (Enc. of Philos. II, 144). And "is his last strictly philosophical work, in which he unites the psychic determinism of Locke with the metaphysical determinism of Hobbes and Spinoza. The work was widely praised by Voltaire, Priestley (who reprinted it in 1790) and the French materialists" (Dict. of 18th c British Philosophers). See also Israel, Radical Enlightenment, p. 614ff.: "Collins was a philosophical necessitarian and radical Bible critic who firmly believed great benefits would accrue to society from the new freedom to philosophize ... But was all this freedom and intellecual progress worth the disillusionment and disruption?".

        Map of North America Corrected from the Latest Discoveries And Observations

      London c. 1717 - Hand-coloured engraved map, on two sheets, joined, extending north to south from Baffin's Bay to Panama, elaborate pictorial cartouche upper left, 'G. Willdey' advertisement below cartouche, some skilful repairs along old folds. Dimensions: 965 × 650mm (38 × 25.5 inches). A fine example of a rare and beautiful map. The present map seems to be an amalgam of two Delisle maps, the 'Carte Du Canada.' and the 'Carte Du Mexique et de la Floride.' both from 1703, and is taken from his composite Atlas of c.1717. Willdey has incorporated a lavish cartouche showing a vignette of George I flanked by a trumpeting angel and Mercury above a personification of America. George Willdey (fl.1707-1737) had broad commercial interests: his shop was stocked with all manner of goods and commodities, many of which are listed and illustrated on this map, including spectacles, scientific instruments, cutlery, toys, snuff, and so on. However, the cartographic side of his business seems not to have been very successful, and few examples of his maps survive.

      Frankfurt and Leipzig: Christoph Gottlieb Nicolai, 1717. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Two volumes in one. 16mo. [14],296,[18] pp. plus frontispiece; 75 pp. plus two folding plates. In German. Modern vellum, manuscript spine title, gilt sun device in spine, gilt sun, moon, and star devices in cover. Title page of first work in black and red. Trimmed close, touching some text. Toning throughout, light dampstains in text and plates of second work. Very good. A Sammelband of two early modern texts on alchemy and practical magic: the first edition of Johann Martius's "Lessons on Natural Magic" and the 1651 second edition of Jacob Wolff's "Treasure Chamber of Nature..." (after the first of 1645). Johann Nikolaus Martius was a Brunswick-based physician whose works focused on magic's practical applications. Thorndike refers to his 1700 dissertation as a "last word in the seventeenth century on magic": "He divided magic into three kinds: natural, artificial or mathematical, and diabolic. He accepted various legendary instances of artificial or mathematical magic... On the other hand, he despaired of the aeronautical arts ever succeeding. He approved of the cabbala, but regarded geomancy as without any natural foundation... Martius felt that it was necessary to build up a new astrology based on experience, although he did not have much hope that this would come about. But he did not doubt that the human soul had power to leave its body and join itself with other things" (HISTORY OF MAGIC AND EXPERIMETAL SCIENCE Vol. VIII, p. 625). His text here discusses the principles of natural magic and includes numerous recipes for curing ailments, effecting changes in foods, manufacturing paints, etc., followed by one hundred repices along the same lines by 16th-century French physician and astrologer Antoine Mizauld. Jacob Wolff (1642-1694) was an early member of the Academy of the Curious as to Nature (the Leopoldina), where he played a major role in the establishment of its library and natural history collection. His Schatzkammer is largely a discussion of Paracelsus's ideas of Mumia and Arcanum, and he writes at length of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil and the Tree of Life, as illustrated in the folding plates. Two rare works representing the last generations of alchemists at the dawn of the Enlightenment.

And the necessity of setting the nation free from the insupportable burthen of debt and taxes. Octavo (185 × 108 mm), pp. [8], 79. Rebound in quarter calf and marbled boards, spine ruled in compartments, red morocco label to front board. Paper flaw to ten leaves where the top of the leaf was apparently caught in the press, with a vertical tear between 10 and 25 mm in length affecting one or two characters on between one and three lines, sense fully recoverable. A good copy, scarce in commerce. First edition, in which Defoe defended Walpole's Sinking Fund, which he said was regarded by the "landed men and gentlemen throughout the whole island" as "a healing, advantagious proposal" while the "moneyed men, and stock-jobbers, chiefly in the city of London" opposed it. (Defoe, The Conduct of Robert Walpole, pp. 49-52, 57, 59). Defoe demonstrated "that Walpole's scheme was no more than a means of doing justice to creditors who had loaned money to the government at lower interest rates than were now legal. Defoe claimed for himself the credit of having stopped the objections that had been made to the Sinking Fund" (Sill).

        De noxiis paludum effluviis, eorumque remedis.

      . Romae: Salvioni, 1717, 4°, XXXXII, 479, (1 Errata) pp., schwarz/rot gedrucktes Titelblatt mit Titelvignette und 1 gefalt. Kupferstichtafel, im Halbpergamenteinband der Zeit; minimal fleckig; feines Exemplar.. FIRST EDITION. "Lancisi suggested that since malaria disappears after drainage it was due to some sort of poison emanating from marshes and possibly transmitted by mosquitoes. He planned a drainage scheme for marshy regions" G&M - - "By early seventeenth century, Italian physician Giovanni Maria Lancisi (1654-1720) made some astounding observations on malaria. In 1716, he first described a characteristic black pigmentation of the brain and spleen in the victims of malaria. Lancisi linked malaria with poisonous vapours of swamps or stagnant water on the ground. In 1717, in his monograph titled Noxious Emanations of Swamps and Their Cure, he echoed the old theories of Varro and Celsus by speculating that malaria was due to minute "bugs" or "worms" which entered the blood and revived the old idea that mosquitoes might play a role." - "Lancisi postulated two ways in which malaria might be spread by mosquitoes. In one, the insects deposit microscopic organisms in uncovered food and drink, and the human consumption of this contaminated material produces the disease. Lancisi's second postulated mechanism was the correct one for malaria. Mosquitoes, he writes, "always inject their salivary juices into the small wounds which are opened by the insects on the surface of the body." Because "all their viscera are filled with deleterious liquids...no controversy can arise among professional men concerning the harmful effect which the insects of the swamps, by mixing their injurious juices with the saliva...inflict upon us." But, lacking proof, Lancisi conceded that there might still be some validity in the old bad-air theory. Lancisi also proposed the draining of marshes to eradicate malaria." B.S. Kakkilaya's Malaria Web Site - - Garrison-Morton No. 5232; Heirs of Hippocrates 447; NLM/Blake, p. 254; Osler 3151; Wellcome III, p. 441.

        Nova Territori Erfordien in Suas Prefecturas.

      [Johann Baptist Homann.], Nuremberg. 1717 - A beautifully engraved hand coloured map of North East Germany showing the area around Erfurt in detail. In the centre of the map is a small plan of Erfurt, which is also shown as a panoramic view at the foot of the map and titled 'St. Petersburg'. An elaborate decorative title cartouche in the lower right corner depicts allegorical figures surrounded by the produce of the land including sheaves of wheat; a beehive; and a cornucopia of fruits. Cherubs holding a coat of arms float up from the scene on the right, while on the lower left a centaur sits meditatively beneath a pine tree amongst slaughtered cattle. Physical features of the area are illustrated and farming areas shown by fields which criss-cross across the map. A clear, dark impression, the work of an outstanding German cartographer who, in 1715, was appointed as imperial geographer by Emperor Charles VI. This map also includes "Schwan See" [Swan Lake] under a town of the same name, which has since disappeared. Hand coloured, two very minor splits at upper and lower edges on centre fold and not affecting engraved area, a handsome map, 54 x 61.5 cm.

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.
