Por J.F.M.M.

      Lisbon, Na Officina de Pascoal da Sylva, 1717. - Woodcut monogram on title-page, headpiece and initial on p. 3, and half-page woodcut on of double-headed eagle on final page. 72 pp. 4°, disbound, edges rouged. Foldlines. Light soiling. Repairs with paper to inner margin of most pages, occasionally touching a few letters. Overall good condition. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this account of the siege and capture of Belgrade, strategically located in Serbia at the junction of the Danube and Sava Rivers. The victory went to Austrian forces under Prince Eugene of Savoy. The narrative gives details of the Austrian and Turkish armies day by day, and a lengthy description of the final battle, on August 18, 1717, which began with an unusual night attack on the Turkish troops camped outside the city (pp. 52-69). Special mention is given to D. Manoel, Infante of Portugal, and other Portuguese volunteers serving with the Austrians.After the capture of Belgrade the Turks sued for peace, ending the Austro-Turkish War (1714-1718) and leaving Emperor Charles VI free to join Great Britain, France, and the Dutch Republic in the Quadruple Alliance against Spain. By the Peace of Passarowitz (1718), the Habsburg Empire gained Belgrade and northern Serbia, thus reaching its maximum expansion in the Balkans.Prince Eugene of Savoy was one of the leading military figures of the day, famous for decisively defeating the Ottomans at the Battle of Zenta in 1697 (he was hailed by Catholics and Protestants as ?the savior of Christendom?) and for his partnership with the Duke of Marlborough at the battles of Blenheim (1704), Oudenarde (1708), and Malplaquet (1709). His reputation was consolidated by the victory at Petrovaradin and by his capture of Belgrade.Freire de Monterroyo Mascarenhas (1670-1760?), a native of Lisbon, began his studies in Portugal and extended them for 10 years, beginning in 1693, by travelling throughout Europe to study its politics and languages. Back in Portugal, he served from 1704 to 1710 as a cavalry captain in the War of the Spanish Succession. When the war ended he began to publish the @Gazeta de Lisboa, of which he remained editor for more than 40 years. He also published numerous pamphlets such as this one, on current events.---- Innocêncio IV, 346. Barbosa Machado II, 855.Coimbra, @Miscelâneas 72, 374, 1952.

      Per Bartolomeo Soliani stampatore ducale, In Modena. 1717 - Opere molto rare scritte dal matematico Domenico Corradi d’Austria (Modena, 1677–1756), nel 1709 ricevette la nomina ufficiale a matematico ducale, ma il suo nome può essere ascritto tra quelli degli ingegneri, dei fisici, dei chimici e dei geologi. Commissario generale delle artiglierie ducali, fu sovrintendente alle miniere di Forno Volasco in Garfagnana, si interessò di polveri da fuoco, di leghe metalliche, della regolazione dei corsi dei fiumi della pianura, di variazioni barometriche in rapporto anche alla meteorologia. Nel 1743-44 pubblicò in due volumi "De’ Calcoli differenziale" e integrale, che è la prima opera stampata in Italia e dedicata completamente al calcolo infinitesimale presentato da G. W. Leibniz nel 1684. Nel 1689-90 Leibniz aveva soggiornato a Modena e nell’occasione aveva stretto rapporti con gli uomini più colti della città, tra i quali il padre di Domenico Corradi d’Austria. Affascinanti le due grandi carte topografiche.

"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).

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.

        Carte des Antilles Françoises et des Indes Voisines. Dressée sur les memoires de Mr. Petit Ingenieur du Roy

      Paris: Chez l'Auteur sur le Quay de l'Horloge, 1717. An excellent early issue of this fine early map of the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean, from Guadeloupe to Grenada, by one of the great French mapmakers. Guillaume De L'Isle (1675-1726) was son of a cartographer and a pupil of Jean Dominique Cassini, who, among other important contributions, aligned the study of astronomy to the study of geography. Under Cassini's direction, observations were made from locations all over the world that enabled longitudinal calculations to be made with much greater accuracy. De L'Isle carried on this exacting work with remarkable dedication and integrity, constantly revising and improving his maps. While precision was his primary goal, his maps are invariably elegant and attractive. This map depicts some the highly disputed islands that figured in the sugar trade and the wars between France and England throughout the 18th century. The purview of the map is from Guadeloupe in the north to Grenada in the south, and it includes Martinique, St. Vincent, Barbados, Dominica and the Grenadines. Phillips Maps p.1054. Copper-engraved map, with period outline colour. Fine condition apart from some light old discolouration to left blank margin.

The section on Madeira includes an account of the introduction of sugarcane from Sicily, and the development of the industry.

      Parma Stamperia di S.A.S. 1717. - Folio, (1) f., 115, (1) pp., including frontispiece and 5 large folding plates measuring approximately ; plate I; 89cmx60cm; plate II.:49cmx44cm: plate III:43cmx67cm: plate IV:82cmx60cm; plate V: 82cmx53cm. Bound in original Spanish calf. ‘Pasta Espanola". Very tall copy with large margins. Internally very fresh. Generally excellent. Rare fete book celebrating the nuptials of Philip V of Spain, the Founder of the Bourbon dynasty, and Elizabeth Farnese, at Parma Cathedral in September of 1714. Arranged by the Vatican after the death of Philip's first wife, Maria Louisa of Savoy, the marriage was of considerable political importance, and in due course brought about the transference of the Duchy of Parma from the possession of the Farnese family to that of the Bourbons. As not infrequently happened in such marriages, the groom didn’t show, but was represented by proxy (a high-ranking Cardinal!). The prose account retails the entry of the massive Vatican entourage into Parma, the tour of the Farnese apartments and other possessions and selected local attractions. The elaborate procession to the Cathedral is set out, with remarks on costume and of course the decoration of the cathedral is treated at length. The Farnese court painter Ilario Spolverino (1657-1734) was commissioned to make a series of paintings of the event, from which a number of engravings were made for the work at hand by the Bolognese Francia. The plates include an allegorical frontispiece in which winged figures present an oval portrait of Elizabeth Farnese to the (apparently) smitten King; (1) an "extra" large plate showing the entry of the Vatican party into Parma, complete with 24 mules; (2) the exterior of the cathedral decorated with draperies and family arms; (3) the decorated interior, with draperies and allegorical emblems, and showing as well the contemporary state of the Cathedral’s permanent decoration, a subject of considerable art historical interest; (4) the wedding proceedings "live," including the panoply of the filled cathedral; (5) an architectural plan of the cathedral.* Berlin Kat. 3060; Lipperheide Si 36; Cicognara 1491; Vinet 567; Coxe, Memoirs of the Kings of Spain and of the House of Bourbon; R.A.

        A voyage to the South-Sea, and along the coasts of Chili and Peru, in the years 1712, 1713, and 1714. Particularly describing the genius and constitution of the inhabitants, as well Indians as Spaniards: their customs and manners, their natural history, mines, commodities, traffick with Europe, &c. With a postscript by Edmund Halley and an account of the settlement, commerce, and riches of the Jesuites in Paraguay.

      Printed for Jonah Bowyer., London, 1717 - London, Printed for Jonah Bowyer. 1717. 4°. 7 n.n. Bl., 335 S., 9 n.n. S. Index. Mit 37 Kupfertafeln (davon 24 [17 gefalteten] Karten und Pläne). Kalblederband der Zeit mit blindgeprägter mehrfacher Deckelfiletierung, Mittelstück mit Rollstempelverzierung und Eckfleurons. Borba de Moraes I, 329. - Palau 94965. - Sabin 25926. - Nissen ZBI 1433. - Erste englische Ausgabe. Erschien 1716 auf Französisch, jedoch ohne den Anhang von Edmund Halley (dem Kometenhalley) und dem anonymen Bericht über die Jesuiten in Paraguay. Frezier, aus einer aus Schottland nach Frankreich zurückgewanderten Familie stammend, wurde 1682 in Chambéry geboren, studierte in Paris und wirkte als Militäringenieur in verschiedenen Gebieten. So gilt sein Werk 'Traité des feux d'artifice', erstmals 1706 erschienen, als Standardwerk der Feuerwerksliteratur. Beauftragt vom französischen Hofe, die Verteidigungsanlagen der Spanier in Südamerika auszuspionieren und gleichzeitig die Resultate der Vermessungen der Expedition von Louis Feuillée in den Jahren 1707 bis 1712 zu überprüfen, nutzte Frezier den Aufenthalt für vielfältige naturwissenschaftliche Studien. So beschreibt Frezier die Chilenische Erdbeere (Fragaria Chilonesis) und brachte diese Frucht erstmals nach Europa. Seine Karten und Bemerkungen zum Kap Hoorn wurden bis ins 19. Jahrhundert geschätzt und seine Beschreibungen der Urbevölkerung Argentiniens, Chiles und Perus und der frühen europäischen Siedlungen galten als vorbildlich. Mit Ausnahme des Frontispiz wurden für die vorliegende Ausgabe die Kupferplatten der französischen Ausgabe verwendet. Durch das 3seitige Postscriptum Halleys und der zusätzlichen Beschreibung der Jesuitenmissionen gewinnt die vorliegende Ausgabe noch an Bedeutung. Die Karten und Ansichten mit Details aus Sta. Catharina, Feuerland, La Conception, Santiago, Valparaiso, Lima, Arica, San Salvador de Bahia u.a. Mit einer bemerkswerten frühen Darstellung des Golfspiels. Die Tafelzählung ist leicht iritieend. Die Tafel XXX wurde der Auflage nicht beigebunden, dafür wurde eine arabisch nummerierte Tafel 36 angefügt. - Der fliegende Vorsatz gelockert sonst fleckenfreies Exemplar. Der schöne Einband leicht berieben. - First English edition. Edited in French in 1716, but without the postscript by Edmund Halley (the one who gave the name to the comet) and the anonymous report on the Jesuits in Paraguay. Frezier, member of a French family emigrated to Scotland and having returned to France, was born in Chambéry in 1682, studied in Paris and became a military engineer with very diversified interests. Thus his 'Traité des feux d'artifice', first edited in 1706, is considered a reference work on fireworks. Sent on orders of the French court to spy on the Spanish forts and settlements in South America and to verify the calculations done by the expedition of Louis Feuillée between 1707 and 1712, Frezier brought back invaluable scientific information from his stays. He thus describes the Chilean strawberry (Fragaria Chilonesis) and brought this fruit to Europe for the first time. His maps and descriptions of Cape Horn were very much considered in the 19th century and his descriptions of the Argentine, Chilean and Peruvian native populations and the early European settlements were amongst the most appreciated. With the exception of the frontispiece, the above edition contains the same copper plates as those of the French publication. This edition is particularly valued for the 3-paged postscript by Halley and the additional description of the Jesuit missions. The maps and views of Sta. Catharina, Tierra del Fuego, La Conception, Santiago, Valparaiso, Lima, Arica, San Salvador de Bahia and others. With a remarkable representation of early golf. The total number of plates is 38, not as proposed on the title (37 plates). The endpaper is loosened but otherwise an immaculate copy. The beautiful binding is slightly worn.

      New York, 1717. unbound. 11.25 x 8.25 inches, City of New York, Commissioner for recording, Office of the Attorney General, February 14, 1717 -- a legal writ whereby Jamison presents charges against a colonist, in part: "David Jamison for our Lord the King George, by the grace of God of Great Britain, Wales and Scotland - and before John Johnston Esq., Mayor of the City of New York, on the 27th of Jan, in the fourth year of his reign...were informed that Jacob Bonnott...having insulted the King, faces damages sought in the amount of 24 shillings." Clearly signed "CJamison" as Recorder. Directly beneath this document, the Mayor of New York, John Johnston (1717 - 1719) pens his verdict in the form of an autographed document signed, February 14, 1717, in part: "CJacob Bonnett, the defendant, in his proper pardon before the above...acknowledged the above action and comforth judgment. I give judgment for the Plaintiff for one pound & four shillings Damages with Costs." A remarkable Colonial document. Slight weaknesses at the folds; very good(-) condition. Jamison was a Colonial lawyer, Attorney General of New York and New Jersey, staunch defender of religious freedom, and one of the founders of the Trinity Church. He was expelled from England (by the Stuarts) and sold into servitude in America because of his religious beliefs. As an accomplished lawyer, he later represented Reverend Francis Makemie, whereby the latter, a Presbyterian, was charged with "Preaching without a license in a private house." In this landmark case, Jamison argued for toleration in such a colony as New York, pointing out that he himself was (secretly) one of the founders of Trinity Church. To the amazement of many, Makemie was acquitted, and soon after, religious tolerance was enacted into the State Charter (1707). Jamison would eventually receive a Royal Commission as Recorder and Attorney General of New York. The founders of Trinity Church. Jamison was expelled from England (by the Stuarts) and sold into servitude in America because of his religious beliefs.

      Einaudi 4285; Goldsmiths'-Kress 10528.10-2; ICCU SBLE 001708; Inglis Palgrave III, p. 57; not in Arnold Arboretum; Bradley; BMC NH. First edition of "thoughts on agriculture" by the Italian priest Ferdinano Paoletti (1717-1801), who spent much of his time studying agriculture to help his parishioners cultivating the land. The work specifically treats agriculture in Tuscany and mostly concentrates on economic theory. Paoletti was a follower of the Physiocrats, who a believed that the wealth of nations was derived solely from agriculture, and believed in the good effects of free trade. "Yet he supported, in his Veri mezzi, taxes on luxuries, the idea of aiding the exportation of commodities not of the first necessity such as oil, wine, etc.; and in his Pensieri protective duties to encourage agriculture" (Inglis Palgrave). A follow-up was published in 1772 as I veri mezzi die render felici le società, which was later discussed by Karl Marx.With the letterpress bookplate of Pietro Buoninsegni, dated 1805, on title-page. The large engraved plate isn't clearly mentioned in the literature and is likely a later addition.With only a few unobtrusive stains and the binding slightly soiled and with the spine chipped. Very good wholly untrimmed copy.

Einzige Ausgabe. - "Krastyo Peikich, who had escaped to Hungary after the 1688 Tchiprovets uprising of Bulgarian Catholics and had become canon of Pecs in 1715, published his anti-Islamic 'Mahometanus dogmatice et catechetice in lege Christi' under the name Christophorus Peichich in 1717 in Nagyszombat. In this book, Peikich advocated the right of his country to freedom; in the interest of a concentration of forces against the Turks he urged a rapprochement between the Eastern and Western Churches" (Kurucz/Szörenyi, Hungaria litterata, Europae filia [Budapest 1985], S. 145). Kristof Peichich (Karst Pejkic) aus Ciprovac in Bulgarien war apostolischer Missionar, Kanonikus bei der Kathedrale zu Fünfkirchen (Pecs) in Ungarn und Abt des Hl. Georg von Csanad. Da er in illyrischer Sprache schrieb, nennen ihn Horanyi und Rotermund fälschlich einen Kroaten (vgl. Jöcher V, 1793). - Hier gebunden als Tyrnauer Prüfungsschrift des Jahres 1766 für Antal Ferenczffi unter dem Vorsitz von Karoly Roth und Lajos Csapodi, mit beigegebenen 16-seitigen "Assertiones ex universa theologia".

        Calculus plenilunii ecliptici quod factum est anno Christi 1717 . . . Calculus plenilunii ecliptici quod factum est anno Christi 1718 . . . Calculus interlunii ecliptici e tabulis Philippi Lansbergii quod anno Christi 1724 . . . [Amsterdam?, ca. 1720]. 12mo & 8vo (14.5×8.5 cm). Latin manuscript in brown ink on paper providing information about and tables of data for lunar and solar eclipses, with 3 full-page astronomical diagrams. Contemporary gold-tooled mottled calf.

      A nice astronomical manuscript in Latin giving information and tables of data about solar and lunar eclipses, illustrated with three full-page diagrams. The calculations are made for viewing from Amsterdam. Each of the three principal sections has a sort of title-page, all three given above. They concern the lunar eclipses of 16/27 March 1717 and 9/20 September 1718 (both clearly noted as past events) and the solar eclipse of 11/22 May 1724, which may have occurred after the manuscript was written. For this last, the manuscript refers to the tables of astronomical data compiled by the Dutch astronomer (Johan) Philip Lansberge (1561-1632) and published at Middleburg in 1632 and later editions. In very good condition, with only minor spotting and a couple small marginal stains. The binding is somewhat worn at the hinges and edges, and the mottling has slightly cracked the surface of the leather, but it still remains in good condition.
