        Cautio criminalis, seu de processibus contra sagas liber, magistratibus Germaniae hoc tempore summè necessarius, praeprimis consiliariis & confessariis principum, inquisitoribus, iudicibus, advocatis, confessioribus reorum, concionatoribus, aliisque lectu utilissimus. (Vorw.: Joannes Gronaeus Austrius)

      Solisbaci (Sulzbach), Endter, 1718 - Nachdruck der Ausgabe von 1695, die selbst ein Nachdruck der Frankfurter Ausgabe von 1632 ist. Die erste Auflage war im Jahr zuvor in Rinteln erschienen, ebenfalls ohne Benennung des Verfassers. Der Jesuit Spee wurde 1627 Beichtvater der als "Hexen" zum Verbrennungstod verurteilten Frauen und Kinder in Würzburg. Aus dieser grauenhaften Erfahrung heraus schrieb er das wirkungsmächtige Buch gegen den Hexenwahn. "Wenn auch nicht die früheste Schrift gegen die Hexenwahn, so war es doch die erste erfolgreiche: sofort nach Amtsantritt als Kurfürst von Mainz verbot Johann Philipp van Schönborn alle weiteren Hexenverbrennungen, die wenig Jahre zuvor bei Schriftstellern wie Albertinus noch aktive Unterstützung gefunden haben" (Dünnhaupt p.3928). Über den Autor und dieses Werk s. die Einführung von Marcus Hellyer zur englischen Übersetzung (Univ. of Virginia Press, 2003): "(.) Its title, Cautio Criminalis, was generic, simply meaning a warning in a matter of criminal law. But its subtitle `or a Book on Witch Trials (seu de Processibus contra Sagas Liber)`, identified its real content. Unlike many books published in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, however, it did not encourage the princes to hunt, try and burn witches or instruct judges and inquisitors on how to identify witches and force them to confess. Rather, it argued that the plague of witches supposedly infesting Germany was the product of the trials themselves and urged princes to supervise trials closely, to regulate the use of torture strictly, and even to end witch trials entirely. (.) Since then the Cautio Criminalis, a cry of conscience from the very epicenter of the witch-hunts, has become known as one of the most stirring examples of an individual speaking truth to power. Its author drew on personal experience, telling arguments, unerring logic, love of complete strangers, and a commitment to defend the innocent to produce a work that retains its enduring appeal almost four centuries after it first appeared."

        Anatomia uteri humani gravidi tabulis illustrata, . The anatomy of the human gravid uterus exhibited in figures, .Birmingham, printed by John Baskerville; London sold by Samuel Baker & George Leigh, Thomas Cadell, David Wilson & George Nicol, John Murray, 1774. Royal 1mo (67 x 48.5 cm). With 34 numbered engraved anatomical plates (plate size 35.5 x 29 cm to 58.5 x 46 cm), drawn by Jan van Riemsdijk and engraved by Robert Strange and others. Without the dedication leaf present in some copies. 20th-century half brown goatskin morocco.

      - Choulant, pp. 296-297; ESTC T137584; Gaskell 56; Heirs of Hippocrates 942; Roberts & Tomlinson, pp. 460-465. Magnificent first edition of a bilingual (Latin and English) anatomical atlas on obstetrics and gynaecology, illustrated with 34 mostly life-sized and accurately detailed anatomical plates of pregnant women and their unborn children. William Hunter (1718-1783), royal physician and professor of anatomy at the Society of Naval Surgeons, wrote the preface and the notes to the plates, had the illustrations drawn under his supervision and worked closely with the engravers, who produced the plates at his expense. The work began when a young woman died suddenly at full term in 1751 and Hunter was able to procure her body before any deterioration. In the preface Hunter gives remarkable details about his techniques, such as "the injection of the blood-vessels" to preserve the body for the artists, and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of different kinds of anatomical illustration, which he mixes here. "One of the great publications of world medical literature as well as a classic of book production" (Heirs of Hippocrates) and "one of the great artistic achievements in medicine" (Haskell Norman).With the ca. 1800 ink stamp of "The Liverpool Library". Without the dedication leaf, fore-edge of plate VIII slightly shaved, a small restoration removing its engraver's name, a few other small marginal restorations, a crease in 1 plate and a few text leaves, and a faint marginal water stain in the last few leaves, but still generally in good condition. The marbled-paper sides are slightly rubbed but the binding is otherwise very good. A spectacular showpiece for any collection in the field of anatomical illustration, women's studies, obstetrics, gynaecology or book production.

Nell’opera con frontespzio proprio: Prosepro Alpini de Balsamo Dialogus In quo verissima Balsami Plantae, Opobalsami, Carpobalsami, & Xylobalsami cognito, plerisque antiquorum atque juniorem Medicorum occulta, nunc elucescit. Prima rarissima edizione, nella versione stampata da Boutesteyn Cornelis weduwe & Boutesteyn Pieter, di questa celeberrima raccolta di scritti del grande medico, botanico e scienziato vicentino originario di Marostica, Prospero Alpini. Botestein pubblicò una prima volta la celeberrima opera di Alpini nel 1718. Nello stesso anno pubblicò anche la "De Rhapontico disputatio" che risulta ancor più rara dell’altra opera, tanto che nessun esemplare è censito in ICCU. L’anno dopo, nel 1719 ripubblicò le opere in un unico volume. Alpini "Nato a Marostica, nella Repubblica di Venezia, in gioventù servì le armi nell’esercito milanese, ma nel 1574 decise di studiare medicina all’Università di Padova, dove si laureò nel 1578. Iniziò la professione di medico a Camposampiero, un piccolo paese del territorio padovano, ma dopo poco tempo, nel 1580, il patrizio veneto Giorgio Emo, nominato console a Il Cairo in Egitto dalla Repubblica Veneta, lo volle con sé come medico personale: in questo modo poté dedicarsi allo studio della botanica, suo interesse scientifico prevalente. Trascorse circa tre anni in questo paese, fino al 1584, e, dalle pratiche di coltivazione della Palma da dattero, Alpini dedusse il concetto di differenza sessuale nelle piante, che in seguito fu adottato come fondamento dal sistema di classificazione scientifica di Linneo. Egli comprese che "le palme da dattero femminili non portavano il frutto a meno che non ci fosse un mescolamento tra i rami maschili e femminili o, come generalmente avviene, a meno che la polverina prodotta dai fiori maschili non fosse cosparsa sui fiori femminili". Nel 1584 tornò a Venezia e in seguito, risiedette per qualche tempo a Genova come medico di Andrea Doria. Nel 1590 tornò di nuovo a Venezia e nel 1593 ottenne la cattedra di lettura dei semplici all’Università di Padova. Dal 1603 fu nominato prefetto dell’orto botanico e titolare anche della cattedra di ostensione dei semplici (l’odierna farmacologia). Nel De Medicina Egyptiorum (Venezia, 1591) sono contenute le prime considerazioni sulla pianta del caffè pubblicate in Europa.". Esemplare in buone-ottime condizioni di conservazione. Rarissima edizione. Rif. Bibl.: Rappaport n. 15-80.

        Joannis Kepleri aliorumque epistolae mutuae: Epistolae ad Joannem Kepplerum Mathematicum Caesareum Scriptae; insertis ad easdem Responssionibus Kepplerianis ... Opus Novum, quo recondita Kepplerianae Doctrinae Capita dilucide explicantur ... ex manusscripta editum.

      First edition Frankfurt & Leipzig: 1718. An exceptional copy, in the original publisher's interim boards, of the first printing of Kepler's scientific correspondence, edited by Michael Gottlieb Hansch, which also contains the first biography of Kepler. "The thousands of MS sheets left at Kepler's death went to his son Ludwig, who promised publication but lacked both the time and the scientific knowledge for the undertaking. After Ludwig's death the Danzig astronomer Johannes Hevelius acquired the collection and published a brief inventory in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, 1674. In 1707 Michael Gottlieb Hansch obtained the material with the intention of publishing it, and in 1718 he produced [with the assistance of Leibniz, ref. Caspar: Kepler, p.366] 'Joannis Kepleri aliorumque epistolae mutuae', a large folio vol. containing 77 letters by Kepler and 407 to him." (D.S.B. vol. VII, p.309). Among those with whom Kepler corresponded were Tycho Brahe, Galileo, Scheiner, Bayer, Scaliger, Harriot, etc. Many of the letters are lengthy scientific treatises. The work is divided into the following parts: an introduction to the history of mathematics and astronomy leading up to Kepler's time; "the earliest presentation of Kepler's life" (Caspar: Kepler, p.13); an index to the 16th and 17th century scientists mentioned in the letters; and an extensive bibliography of Kepler's writings; and the letters. (Brewster: The Martyrs of Science, pp. 252-254:) Kepler "left behind him twenty-two volumes of manuscripts, seven of which contain his epistolary correspondence. The celebrated astronomer Hevelius, who was a contemporary of Louis Kepler, purchased all these manuscripts from Kepler's representatives. At the death of Hevelius they were bought by M. Gottlieb Hansch, a zealous mathematician, who was desirous of giving them to the world. For this purpose he issued a prospectus in 1714 for publishing them by subscription, in 22 volumes folio; but his plan having failed, he was introduced to Charles VI., who liberally obtained for him 1000 ducats to defray the expense of the publication, and an annual pension of 300 florins. With such encouragement, Hansch published in 1718, in one volume folio, the correspondaence of Kepler, entitled 'Epistolæ ad Joannem Kepplerum'. The expenses of this volume unfortunately exhausted the 1000 ducats which had been granted by the emperor, and, instead of being able to publish the rest of the MSS., Hansch was under the necessity of pledging them for 828 florins". (D.S.B. vol. VII, p.309:) "Hansch had the MSS bound in vellum in 22 vols., which he cataloged briefly in Acta eruditorum, no, 57 (1714), 242-246; in 1721 financial difficulties forced him to pawn 18 of the vols. The other four-- VII, VIII, and XII, which had formed the basis for his Epistolae, and VI, which was used for De calendario Gregoriano (Frankfurt, 1726)--eventually found their way to the Osterreichische Nationalbibliothek in Vienna, where VI is codex 10704 and the three original vols. of letters have apparently been rebound into codices 10702 and 10703. Not until about 1765 were the 18 vols. rediscovered, and in 1773 Catherine II purchased them for the Academy of Sciences in St. Petersburg. They are still preserved in Leningrad. Details of this odyssey are chronicled by Martha List: 'Der handschriftliche Nachlasz der Astronomen Johannes Kepler and Tycho Brach', 1961". Caspar: Bibliographia Kepleriani, 102; Honeyman 1805. Scarce. Large folio: 402 x 270 mm. Entirely uncut in the original publisher's interim boards. Old circular woodcut stamp to the title page. Pp. [16], XXXVIII, [9], 704, [4] and 8 engraved plates. Some scattered browning throughout, offset and spotting to the plates (which is most likely usual for this work; other copies that we have been able to locate have been described as 'dampstained, soiled, spotted, and browned.' Quite scarce on the market, and even more so in such original and unrestored condition.

        Opticks: or, a Treatise of the Reflections, Refractions, Inflections, and Colours of Light.

      London: W. & J. Innys, 1718. 2nd Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo (196 x 122 mm). [8], 382, [2] pp., including advertisement leaf and 12 folding engraved plates bound at end. Contemporary panelled calf, rebacked, spine with 5 raised bands gilt-lettered in first compartment (corners repaired, extremities little rubbed). Text with light even browning, occasional very minor spotting. A fine, wide-margined copy. ----Babson 134, Gray 176, Wallis 176, PMM172 (first ed.). SECOND EDITION (first octavo), second issue with title dated 1718 but with the leaf of advertisements at end (Babson states this leaf is missing in this issue). The mathematical tracts were omitted 'as not belonging to the subject', and the number of queries at the end of book three was increased from 16 to 31, including the celebrated query no. 28 on the nature of light 'Are not all Hypotheses erroneous which have hitherto been invented for explaining the Phenomena of Light, by new Modification of the Rays?' (Babson 134).Newton's classic work describing his fundamental experiments on the color spectrum also explains such optical phenomena as the rainbow, "Newton's rings," and the double refraction of the Icelandic spar. Newton opens his study with the claim, "My Design in this Book is not to explain the Properties of Light by Hypotheses, but to propose and prove them by Reason and Experiments." Because of Newton's reliance on scientific method, Opticks remained for over a century "a work of great authority; 'supreme' in Andrade's works 'as a record of experiment and scientific deduction from experiment'" (PMM).Opticks was expanded from Newton's first publication (which was also the first major scientific discovery to be published in a scientific journal): "New Theory about Light and Colours," a paper that appeared in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society in 1672. Opticks was by far the most popular of Newton's works during his lifetime; he supervised five editions himself (three in English and two in Latin), and two French editions were published before his death in 1727. The two "Treatises of the Species and Magnitude of Curvilinear Figures" included at the end of the text are Newton's first published mathematical papers and were intended to assert his priority over Leibniz in the discovery of the calculus. Very Good.

        An Act for the further Preventing Robbery, Burglary, and other Felonies, and for the more effectual Transportation of Felons...

      London: John Baskett by order of Parliament, 1718. Foolscap, 8 pp. including armorial title-page, text pp. 183-188, very good; disbound, original stitch-sewing still present. The First Transportation Act of 1718, which allowed courts to sentence convicts to seven years in America in order 'to deter criminals and to supply the colonies with labour' (Shaw, Convicts and the Colonies, p. 25). This Act, which first formally involved the British Government in the practice of transportation, was discontinued with the War of Independence in 1776, but lay at the heart of the renewal of the practice in the mid-1780s when the colony in New South Wales was being planned. As a result, this Act should be considered central to the pre-history of Botany Bay.The Act begins lamenting the present state of affairs, where thieves sent to the West Indies regularly return to crime with a high incidence of capital punishment for such reprobates. This dire situation is contrasted with a significant labour shortage: 'in many of His Majesty's colonies and plantations in America, there is a great want of servants, who by their labour and industry might be the means of improving and making the said colonies and plantations more useful to this nation.' Although now formalised as government policy, this Act would still rely on private merchants who could, moreover, profit from the sale of the convicts once they had arrived in the New World.As a result, the Act promotes transportation to America for a term of seven years as an alternative to the usual punishments for larceny - flogging, branding of the hands or confinement in workhouses and other penitentiaries. Significantly, it notes that those found guilty of crimes previously punished by death (specifically the purchase and resale of stolen goods) could now be eligible for transportation and labour for a period of fourteen years. Of additional interest are clauses stipulating the terms and conditions of return to the United Kingdom upon completion of the transportation sentence, including costs to be incurred by the ex-convict. Not surprisingly, those convicted of piracy are denied the exemptions and mercies extended to regular felons through this transportation act. Very good.

Decorative title cartouche depicting the history of european navigation. - Vita of the artist: Thomas Kitchin (or Thomas Kitchen (1718?1784) was an English engraver and cartographer, who became hydrographer to the king. He was also an author, who wrote about the history of the West Indies. He produced John Elphinstone's map of Scotland (1746), Geographia Scotiae (1749), and The Small English Atlas (1749) with Thomas Jefferys. The Large English Atlas (with Bowen 1749?60) was a serious attempt to cover England at large scale. In 1755 Kitchin engraved the Mitchell Map map of North AmericaHe worked for London Magazine. He produced 170 maps for London Magazine (1747?83). Kitchin was the head hydrographer for the King of England. Kitchin frequently stole the works of other cartographers, which is one reason why he created so much work as a cartographer. His book, The Present State of the West-Indies: Containing an Accurate Description of What Parts Are Possessed by the Several Powers in Europe was published in 1778 by R. Baldwin in London.

        Opticks: or, a Treatise of the Reflections, Refractions, Inflections, and Colours of Light

      London, 1718. Second edition. Good antiquarian condition. 8vo. [8], 382 pp., 12 folding engraved plates. Sympathetic full calf antique in the "Cambridge" style, marbled edges. Plate 1 (between pp. 98/99) unobtrusively repaired. Two words inexplicably excised from p. 285; one word from p. 289; and one word from p. 298, lacking advertisement leaf at end (but cf. Babson 134). Eighteenth-century inscription on title-page: "Ex libris Societatis Medicina Edinensis" with ink stamps on all plates. Besides the "Principia," the second of Newton's major writings on physical science was the Opticks, first published in 1704. The work represents a major contribution to science, different but in some ways rivaling that of the Principia. Whereas the 1704 edition contained 16 Queries, for this second edition Newton expanded them to 31. Query number 28, on the Nature of Light, is the most famous: "Are not all Hypotheses erroneous which have hitherto been invented for explaining the Phenomena of Light, by new Modification of the Rays?" "The Opticks is largely a record of experiments and the deductions made from them, covering a wide range of topics in what was later to be known as physical optics. That is, this work is not a geometric discussion of catoptrics or dioptrics, the traditional subjects of reflection of light by mirrors of different shapes and the exploration of how light is bent as it passes from one medium, such as air, into another, such as water or glass. Rather, the Opticks is a study of the nature of light and color and the various phenomena of diffraction, which Newton called the 'inflexion' of light." "In this book, Newton sets forth in full on his experiments, first reported in 1672, on dispersion, or the separation of light into a spectrum of its component colors. He shows how colors arise from selective absorption, reflection, or transmission of the various component parts of the incident light. His experiments on these subjects and on the problems of diffraction (which he never fully mastered) set the subject of optics on a new level." The Queries in the first edition were brief, but the later ones became short essays, filling many pages. "These Queries, especially the later ones, deal with a wide range of physical phenomena, far transcending any narrow interpretation of the subject matter of 'optics.' They concern the nature and transmission of heat; the possible cause of gravity; electrical phenomena; the nature of chemical action; the way in which God created matter in 'The Beginning;' the proper way to do science; and even the ethical conduct of human beings." "These Queries are not really questions in the ordinary sense. They are almost all posed in the negative, as rhetorical questions. That is, Newton does not ask whether light is or may be a body. Rather, he declares: 'Is not Light a Body?' Not only does this form indicate that Newton had an answer, but that it may go on for many pages. Clearly, as Stephen Hales (a firm Newtonian of the early 18th century) declared, this was Newton's mode of explaining 'by Query.'" "In 1717, Newton brought out a revised English version of the Opticks, now incorporating English versions of the queries that had been added in the Latin edition of 1706, plus some new ones. Then, in 1718, there was a second issue of this second English edition. No one has as yet discovered exactly why there were two issues of this second English edition of the Opticks, nor has anyone as yet compared the two issues to find out what changes, if any, were introduced by Newton into the second issue."

Primum, ac denuo Urbani VIII. Auctoritate recognitum. Libro en Latín. Antverpiae, Ex typographia Plantiniana, M DCC. XVIII (1718). Características: Pasta dura en plena piel de la época de una gran belleza. Libro en excelente estado para el tiempo que tiene de vida (288 años).

El libro muestra sus definidos nervios que le dan consistencia. Tiene unos bellos adornos grabados en los cantos y conserva muy bien y limpios los dorados en los mismos cantos. Las guardas son también de una gran belleza y están perfectamente conservadas en un bello color azul marino adornado con lo que aparentan ser flores y motivos multicolores.

El papel se encuentra en inmejorable estado. Tiene una minúscula marca de polilla en el margen interior superior sumamente insignificante que no toca ni una sola letra y no afecta en absoluto nada. Tiene también algunas pequeñas imágenes más sencillas al principio de algunos capítulos adornando las letras de inicio como es la costumbre de estos bellos materiales. Las tintas de las letras están en negro y rojo como es caractarístico de este tipo de libros de la época. Al final del libro, en la última hoja tiene una imagen en rojo por demás también muy bella.

        An Essay on the Ancient and Modern Use of Armories; shewing Their Origin, Definition, and Division of them into their several Species. The Method of Composing them, and Marshalling many Coats together in one Shield. Illustrated by many Examples and Sculptures of the Armorial Ensigns of Noble Families in this and other Nations. To which is added, an Index explaining the Terms of Blazon made use of in this Essay

      Edinburgh: Printed by William Adams, Junior, for Mr. James Mack Euen, 1718. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good antiquarian condition. 4to. [viii], [6], 224, [16] pp. + 7 engraved plates (three engraved by Rot Wood, two by Ard Burden, and one by Rot Mylne; the seventh, unsigned, is probably Mylne's). Bound in early or mid-19th century red morocco in the 18th-century style, elaborately gilt, seven raised bands on spine (slightly faded, extremities very lightly rubbed), inner gilt dentelles, all edges gilt. Preserved in a black cloth folding case. A lovely retrospective binding in the Scottish 18th-century style. While the binding is surely later than the publication of the text, it is not so easily datable: the watermark on the final endleaf is type of Heawood 3693 (a pot, two handles, monogram PR). The binding may be Scottish work: it comes from the library of John Whitefoord (sic) Mackenzie (1794-1884), a Scottish solicitor and Ballantyne member who received regular visits from Dibden as we learn in the latter's "Bibliographical, Antiquarian and Picturesque Tour in the Northern Counties of England and Scotland" (1838) pp. 618-622. The author, Alexander Nisbet (1657-1725) was the unfortunate victim of an egregious literary fraud that tarnished his good name after he had been dead for 17 years, and it took 150 for the fraud to be discovered. But as a herald "he remains unrivalled. Many of the methods in fashion in his day in differencing and quartering arms, and which he so heartily denounced, have been laid aside. The reforms he urged in the methods of blazon have been mostly adopted. His classification of ordinaries and sub-ordinaries has been almost universally acquiesced in." (Ross and Grant). Seventeen years after his death in 1725, Alexander Nisbet's name was affixed to a large folio entitled "System of Heraldry, Speculative and Practical, with the True Art of Blazon" (Edinburgh, 1742), which was advertised as being Vol. II of the present work. It turns out that the 1742 "System of Heraldry" was a complete sham, largely based on a forged manuscript that Nisbet had nothing to do with. In fact, "Poor Nisbet" was the victim of a series of forgeries that remained undetected for a sesquicentennial, during which time his reputation as a herald was posthumously destroyed. "The deed was perpetrated in the interest of the Dean branch of the Nisbet family, whose influence throughout [the "System of Heraldry"], in which they more than once claim to be the principal family of the name, is quite apparent, and how the act might affect [Nisbet's] reputation probably never occurred to them. But the result was disastrous. The single-minded patriot was transformed into the needy trafficker in ancestral honours, and since it was impossible to overlook his work, he is quoted sometimes with pity, and as frequently with contempt." (Ross and Grant). The list of the subscribers gives 191 names. The text extends is divided into seventeen chapters, as follows: I. Of the Origin of Arms. II. Of the Definition of Arms, and the Division of them into their several Species. III. Of the Ancient Practice of Arms before and about the Time when they began to be Composed and Marshalled. IV. Of Composed Arms and Collateral ones. V. Of Marriage. VI. Of Offices, Ecclesiastical and Civil. VII. Of Arms of Alliances, with the Method of Marshalling them and others Quarterly. VIII. Of Adoption and Substitution. IX. Of Patronage. X. Of Gratitude and Affection. XI. Of Religion. XII. Of Arms of general Concession. XIII. Of Arms of special Concession. XIV. Of Arms of Dominion. XV. Of Feudal Arms, or Arms of Dignities. XVI. Of Arms of Pretension. XVII. Of other Methods of marshalling Arms. There are ten pages of "An Alphabetical Index Explaining the Terms of Herauldry in this Essay," and six pages of "An Alphabetical Table of the Names and Titles of the Families whose Blazons are in this Essay of Herauldry."

        Thesaurus Juris Equestris Publici et Privati. Dessen Erster Theil handelt I. von der dreyen Reichs-Ritter-Craysen in Schwaben und Francken am Rhein-Strohm Ursprünglichen Immedietät / Immunität / Antiquität / altem Splendor.

      Ulm, Johannes Gassenmeyer Burger, 1718. Mit zahlreichen großformatigen Kapitel- und Textvignetten. Mit 60-seitigem Register im Anhang. Eines der Hauptwerke des Rechtsgelehrten Johann Stephan Burgermeister (1663 - 1722 auch: Burgemeister, Bürgermeister). Der in Geißlingen bei Ulm, damals freie Reichsstadt, geborene Burgermeister entstammte einem alten Adelsgeschlecht. Nach dem Studium der Rechtswissenschaften an den Universitäten Marburg, Wittenberg und Straßburg sowie einer ausgedehnten Reise durch Italien, Frankreich, Holland, England und Deutschland war er zunächst am Reichskammergericht in Speier tätig. Nach Promotion in Tübingen wurde er 1696 zunächst Consulent, 1698 dann Syndicus der schwäbischen freien Reichsritterschaft im Canton Neckar-Schwarzwald und avancierte bald darauf zum herzoglich würtembergischen Rath. 1706 ging er als Rechtsconsulent (Syndikus) nach Ulm, wo er bis zu seinem Tode tätig blieb. Burgermeister widmete sich zeit seines Lebens der Verteidigung und Rechtfertigung der Privilegien der Reichsritterschaft und verfaßte hierzu eine Reihe von Schriften, die wesentliches Material zur Rechtsstellung und Geschichte des Reichsadelsstandes enthalten. Auch das vorliegende Werk gehört in diesen Kontext. Es gibt unter anderem ausführlich Auskunft über den Verhaltenskodex der Reichsritter und definiert zahlreiche Tatbestände der "Unwürdigkeit" Sehr gutes, frisches Exemplar des sehr seltenen Werkes Seiten sauber und fleckenfrei sowie ohne nennenswerte Bräunungen. Weitere Fotos auf der Homepage des Antiquariats (bitte Art.-Nr. auf der Angebotsseite in das Suchfeld eingeben).
