        Fair Payment No Spunge

      London: J. Brotherton and W. Meddows,, 1717. Or, some considerations on the unreasonableness of refusing to receive back money lent on publick securities. 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.

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.
