        Recueil Par Ordre Alphabetique des Principales Questions de Droit.

      1718 - A Curious Hybrid of Encyclopedia, Treatise and Reform Tract [Bretonnier, Barthelemy-Joseph (1656-1727)]. Recueil Par Ordre Alphabetique des Principales Questions de Droit, Qui se Jugent Diversement dans les Differens Tribunaux du Royaume. Avec des Reflexions pour Concilier la Diversite de la Jurisprudence, & la Rendre Uniforme dans tous les Tribunaux. Paris: Chez Emery, 1718. lxxii, 463, [18] pp. Octavo (6-1/2" x 3-3/4"). Contemporary sheep, gilt spine with raised bands and lettering piece, edges rouged. Moderate rubbing to extremities with wear to spine ends and corners, joints starting at ends. Woodcut head and tail-pieces. Some toning to text. Early annotations to verso of front free endpaper, two early struck-through signatures to title page, interior otherwise clean. * First edition. Organized alphabetically, this guide to French law and judicial administration is an encyclopedia, a treatise and a reform tract. As the title indicates, it outlines different jurisdictions in order to advance an argument for a comprehensive uniform court system. The "questions" relate, for the most part, to tricky aspects of family law. Some of the topics its covers are the marriage of wives of absent husbands, dowries, bastards, the passing on of jewelry, the marriage of minors, second marriages, subrogation, wills, and wards. Bretonnier was an avocat of the Paris Parlement. First published in 1718, his treatise went through five editions, the final appearing in 1783. All are scarce in North America. OCLC locates 3 copies of the first edition in North America, 2 in law libraries (Harvard, University of Michigan). This edition not in Camus. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Leyden, Johannes Muller, the widow of Cornelis Boutesteyn, and Samuel Luchtmans 1718 - (gegraveerde titelpagina, 21) 302, (2) 134, (14) 164, (2) 66 folia. Origineel Perkament met ribben en stempels, Folio H. 43 x B. 27 x D. 12 cm. (Zeer fraaie Statenbijbel in heldere druk op zeer wit papier, in een originele perkamenten band, het is zeer zeldzaam om een Bijbel uit deze tijd gebonden te zien in perkament. De onderkant van de rug is vakkundig gerestaureerd en de linten zijn vernieuwd. Met de 6 uitvouwbare kaarten van Cornelis Danckerts II. Deze 6 bijbelkaarten werden rond 1710 gegraveerd door Albert Schut, een graveur die werkzaam was van 1708 tot 1713. De wereldkaart en de kaart over de zendingsreizen van Paulus zijn gewone, enigzins bijgewerkte atlaskaarten. Op de laatste kaart staan zelf Nederlandse plaatsnamen te lezen, zoals Coeverden en Staveren of het Waddeneiland Schierman Ooge, namen waar Paulus wel nooit van gehoord zal hebben. De kaarten over het paradijs, de woestijnreis en het Beloofde Land lijken veel op de gelijknamige kaarten van Nicolaes Visscher. Alles is veel soberder van opzet, meestal zonder inzetten en engeltjes, meer in de Franse stijl, welke in de achttiende eeuw populair werd. De Jeruzalemkaart, volgens het ontwerp van Villalpando, is sterk verwant aan die van de familie Keur. Voor het drukken van deze Bijbel werd gebruik gemaakt van gegoten platen, waarop de complete tekst van de te drukken Bijbel stond. Luchtmans was de enige drukker die hiervan gebruik heeft gemaakt.) (engraved titlepage, 21) 302, (2) 134, (14) 164, (2) 66 folia. Contemporary blind-stamped Vellum with 6 raised bands, Folio H. 43 x L. 27 x W. 12 cm. (Beautiful Dutch States Bible, bright printing on very white paper, bound in a contemporary vellum binding, it is very rare to see a Bible from this time bound in complete vellum. The bottom of the spine is skillfully restored and the ribbons have been renewed. With the 6 folding maps by Cornelis Danckerts II. These 6 biblemaps were engraved around the year 1710 by Albert Schut, an engraver who worked from 1708 until 1713. The worldmap and the map of the travels of Paul are slightly modified atlas maps. On this last map you can even read Dutch place names, like Coeverden and Staveren or the Wadden island Schierman Ooge, these are names Paul most likely could have never heard of. The maps of the Paradise, the wanderings of Israel in the desert, and the Promised Land look a lot like the similar named maps by Nicolaes Visscher, although everything is much more moderate of design, most of the time without insertions and little angels, but more in the French style, which became popular in the eighteenth century. The map of Jerusalem, after the design by Villalpando, is strongly related to the similar map by the family Keur. For the printing of this Bible were used casted plates, on which were written the complete text of the to be printed Bible. Luchtmans was the only printer that ever used this system.) Poortman, W.C.

      Jena, 30. IX. 1718.. 1 S. Qu.-schmal-kl. 8vo.. "Aeterna sequamur memoriae caussa [!]". - Johann Franz Buddeus war Prof. der Moralphilosophie in Halle, lehrte dann als Prof. der Theologie in Jena und wurde 1715 Ordinarius. "Philosophisch an Thomasius, zum Teil auch an Locke orientiert, verfaßte Buddeus in der Hallenser Zeit die 'Elementa Philosophiae practicae' und die 'Institutiones Philosophiae eclecticae' (1703), die in zwei selbständigen Teilen die 'Elementa philosophiae instrumentalis' (Logik) und die 'Elementa phlosopiae theoreticae' (Metaphysik) behandeln; zusammen stellen sie - durchaus mit Lehrbuchcharakter - das vor Wolff am weitesten verbreitete philosophische System dar. In den theologischen Arbeiten, die der mit August Hermann Francke befreundete und von Spener beeinflußte Buddeus vor allem in Jena verfaßte, vermittelte er zwischen Pietismus und Orthodoxie" (DBE). - Etwas fleckig und mit Spuren alter Montage verso.

        Poems on Several Occasions

      London: Printed for Jacob Tonson at Shakespear?s-head over against Katherin-Street in the Strand, and John Barber upon Lambeth-Hill, 1718. Folio (17-7/8 x 11-1/8 inches), (6), (14, dedication), (2, preface), (2, postscript), [20, List of Subscribers], [1]-506, (6, Contents) pp. Original 18th-century dark-brown morocco gilt Harleian binding by Thomas Elliott for Lord Edward Harley. Covers with triple fillet border, central gilt lozenge built from several tools. Gilt-extra backstrip, expertly rebacked with (7) raised bands and the original red morocco label lettered in gilt. Some rubbing at joints, wear at corners. Marbled endpapers. Engraved head and tailpieces throughout. All edges gilt. Strasburg bend watermarked paper. Calligraphic presentation inscription from Edward Lord Harley to Abigail Harley, as follows: ?A. Harley, the gift of the Right Honble the Lord Harley.? Abigail Harley married the Honourable George Verney (Attorney General to Queen Caroline). With the bookplates of their son, John Peyton Verney, 14th baron Willoughby de Broke, and Robert John Verney, the 17th Baron. First collected edition, a large-paper copy with fine provenance of one of the greatest 18th-century books of English poetry. Among the most important English poets of the early 18th century, Matthew Prior (1664-1721) was also a diplomat whose actions at the behest of the English people were pivotal in bringing about the Peace of Utrecht. In the case of the present volume, this historical fact takes on special significance, as ?during the latter part of June 1711 Robert Harley, now earl of Oxford and lord treasurer, asked that Prior be sent to France along with Abbé François Gaultier, the French priest who was serving similarly as a secret negotiator for the opposite side...where Prior entered into negotiations with Jean Baptiste Colbert, marquis de Torcy, his friendly acquaintance from his previous mission in Paris over a decade before? (DNB). On the provenance: ?The Harleian Library, of which the manuscripts were to form one of the foundation collections of the British Museum while the printed books were sold in the 1740s, was founded by Robert, 1st Earl of Oxford, who died in 1724. But when he was confined to the tower of London after his fall from office in 1715, his son Edward, Lord Harley (1689-1741) took over its management so that its true greatness with over 7000 manuscripts and over 50,000 printed books and a remarkably high average quality in both fields, was due to him and his extremely efficient and learned librarian, Humfrey Wanley? (Howard Nixon in Studies in the Book Trade, 1975). As mentioned above, Edward Harley?s presentation inscription appears on the front flyleaf of our copy; he was a patron of Prior and subscribed for 10 copies. Not in Rothschild. Wise, Ashley Library, 5238. Ebert 17934. Foxon 6641.

        Arrest Du Conseil D¿Estat Du Roy, Concernant le Commerce du Castor, don¿t le Privilege est accordé à la Compagnie d¿Occident. Du. 11. Juillet 1718. Extrait des Registres du Conseil d¿Estat.

      A L¿Imprimerie Royale, Paris 1718 - quarto, 8 pages, trimmed at top and bottom edge, old armorial hand-stamp and manuscript notation on first page, small stain in blank margin, manuscript attestation or registration at La Rochelle 3 December, 1718, signed ¿Regnaud.¿ Grants exclusive rights for the Canadian beaver trade to John Law¿s Compagnie de l¿Occident, better known as the Mississippi Company. This was a key element in the finances of Law¿s company. In May 1716, the Banque Générale Privée, which developed the use of paper money, was set by convicted murderer and millionaire gambler John Law. It was a private bank, but three quarters of the capital consisted of government bills and government accepted notes. In August 1717, he bought the Mississippi Company to help the French colony in Louisiana. In the same year Law conceived a joint-stock trading company called the Compagnie d¿Occident, or literally ¿Company of the West.¿ Law was named Chief Director of this new company, which was granted a trade monopoly in August 1717, of the West Indies and North America by the French government. In Canada the company would trade in beaver skins. In Louisiana they would trade in precious metals. (see item number 33 below for the company¿s charter). Variant of Wroth and Annan, 642, the present example with different imprint. See Maggs, The French Colonisation of America, 111, for their offering of that variant issue (£10 10s).

Rich inner frieze. gilt edges. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Première édition complète en partie originale ; 21 dialogues et les 28 fables paraissent pour la première fois. Reliures en plein maroquin vieux rouge de la fin du XIXe signée Hardy Mennil. Dos à nerfs janséniste, titre, tomaison et date dorés. Riche frise intérieure. tranches dorées. Une très étroite fente sur 1cm au mors supérieur, au tome 1. Très bel exemplaire. Comme la plupart des ouvrages de Fénelon, celui-ci a été écrit pour l'éducation du Duc de Bourgogne, non seulement pour lui faire connaître la mythologie (dialogues anciens et les fables) mais également l'histoire (dialogues modernes) et surtout les vertus de l'honnête homme, nécessaire pour parvenir à une quelconque gloire réelle. Le premier tome mêle personnages mythologiques et historiques : Romulus et remus, Democrite et Heraclite, Achille et Chiron, Demosthene et Cicero... et le second des personnages historiques du Moyen âge au XVIIe, le dernier mettant en scène le Cardinal de Richelieu et le Cardinal Mazarin. L'ensemble est chargé d'une forte morale et possède une lourde charge patriotique. Le Dialogue des morts fut un véritable genre au XVIIIe, Fénelon fut un des premiers à le ressuciter à la fin du XVIIe en s'appuyant sur ceux de Lucien de Samosate.

      Halle und Leipzig (Halae & Lipsiae), typis & sumtibus viduae Christophori Salfeldii, 1718.. Editio quarta praecedentibus auctior et correctior in usum Auditorii Thomasiani. Gr.-8vo. Tb. in Rot-Schwarz-Druck, 284 S., 1 Bl. Zeitgenössischer Pergamentband mit geprägtem Rücken nach Art eines Rückenschildes. (stellenw. etw. stockfleckig).. Vierte Ausgabe der zuerst 1705 erschienenen Arbeit. - Thomasius' (1655-1728) philosophisches und rechtswissenschaftliches Verständnis wird in der vorliegenden Arbeit systematisiert und schlägt sich hier vor allem nieder. Er fordert ein Recht ohne religiösen und theologischen Bezug und formuliert die drei Grundprinzipien des Naturrechts: Honestum, Decorum und Iustum. Neben Grotius und Pufendorf ist Thomasius der überragende Naturrechtler, in Deutschland der überragende Aufklärer mit der größten Wirkung. Er griff die Heuchelei der Rechtgläubigen ebenso an wie den althergekommenen Universitätsbetrieb oder rieb sich am fürstlichen Polizeistaat. Er war der erste Hochschullehrer, der in einem deutschen Hörsaal deutsch gesprochen hat (seit 1687 in Leipzig, gegen großen Widerstand) und so dem Bürgertum den Weg in die Aufklärung ebnete. Die Universität sollte ein Hort der Aufklärung sein, eine Einstellung, die ihm in Leipzig Verweise und den Vorwurf der "Glaubensschändung" einbrachte - aber auch die Gelegenheit, in Halle mit dem Aufbau der 1694 gegründeten Friedrichs-Universität diese Vision vorbildhaft Wirklichkeit werden zu lassen. Sein Kampf gegen Hexenwahn und Folter ist bis heute im öffentlichen Bewußtsein verankert.

Das erste Buch handelt von den Suppen; das zweite behandelt Pasteten und Torten (dabei zwei Schokoladetorten!); das dritte Buch behandelt Fleisch- und Geflügelspeisen, das vierte Mehlspeisen. Die Tafeln zeigen Pasteten, Zuckerbackwerk, Tafelaufsätze etc. Die Kupfer sind mit 1-305 paginiert, doch sind die Nummern 204 und 286 sowohl in der ersten wie in der zweiten, ein Jahr späteren Ausgabe übersprungen worden. Die vorgesehenen Abbildungen wurden offenbar nie gestochen. Die Kollation stimmt mit der bei Weiss angeführten überein; der entsprechungslose Kustode "Saltz-" am Ende des Registers des zweiten Buchs im zweiten Teil deutet lediglich darauf hin, daß das Register ursprünglich nach dem folgenden "Vorbericht" und den Tafeln hätte eingebunden werden sollen. Einband berieben und bestoßen, beide Schließen fehlen. Es fehlen: vorderer fliegender Vorsatz, gestochenes Frontispiz, Titelblatt (Titelblatt mit Jahreszahl 1718 liegt als Kopie bei), die ersten 20 Blätter mit Vorrede. Erster Zwischentitel (Erster Theil. Erstes Buch) durchgerissen (mit Japanpapier hinterlegt) und wie die Seiten 3 bis 6 lose, Zwischentitel (Zweyter Theil. Anderes Buch) mit großem Eckabriß, letztes Registerblatt des Anderen Buchs des 3. Teils mit kleinem Eckabriß (geringer Buchstabenverlust), vorderer Spiegel mit Stempel eines Antiquars, wenige Blätter mit kleinen Randschäden durch entfernte Blattweiser, teils leicht fleckig und gebräunt. Es fehlen die Kupfertafeln 1 bis 12 (wurden wohl entfernt), die Kupfertafel 13/14 mit großem Eckabriß (Darstellung nicht betroffen), die Tafel 15/16 mit hinterlegtem Einriß und Eckschaden; die Tafeln 25/26, 37/38, 39/40, 65/66, 117/118, 169/170, 173/174 (Bildverlust), 175/176, 189/190, 191/192, 215/216 mit Eckabrissen bzw. Randbeschädigungen. Tafel 175 mit Darstellung einer Schildkröte überklebt (vom Verlag), die Tafeln 188, 189 und 192 falsch numeriert und handschriftlich verbessert, Tafeln teils mit Einrissen und Randfehlstellen. Trotz der zahlreichen Mängel noch sammelwürdiges Exemplar (ist vielleicht doch besser, als die Beschreibung erwarten lässt).
