Monasticon Anglicanum established for the first time the importance of charters as a primary source for the writing of medieval history, and as a source for understanding the legal practice of earlier centuries and aspects of the feudal system relating to conditions of tenure.

Den 29 Jahren äußerst harmonisch verlaufenden Ehejahren entstammten zehn Kinder, darunter die späteren Kaiser Joseph I. und Karl VI. Auch nach Leopolds Tod im Mittelpunkt höfischen Lebens stehend und ihrem ältesten Sohn, Kaiser Joseph I., bisweilen in dessen Regierungsgeschäfte hineinredend, widmete sie sich vornehmlich der Armen- und Krankenpflege. - Wirich von Daun, 1701 zum General im Armeekorps von Prinz Eugen und 1706 zum Feldmarschall ernannt, verteidigte Turin gegen die französischen Belagerer und wurde als Feldzeugmeister mit dem Oberbefehl der österreichischen Truppen gegen Neapel-Sizilien betraut.

D. Browne [et al]., London. Folio, pp. [ii]-xv + [xvi] errata + [1]-739 +blank + [22] index + [23] ads; full period calf stamped in black; contemporary morocco spine label gilt; boards starting to detach (with leather loss) but still held by cords; tips worn; several small dings and gouges; later hand-lettered library code to heel of spine; library ink stamp to top edge; bookplates to pastedown; ink stamp, embossed stamp, and library numerals to title leaf; embossed stamp to pp. 17-18; leaves generally clean; library pocket and electronic tag to rear pastedown; a reasonably attractive ex-library copy. Properly de-accessioned. Boards. Later edition printed in the year of the author's death. The first dialogue appears to have been printed under this title as early as 1691. The Dialogues have to do with the legitimacy of the claim for the divine right of Kings and the nature of English Constitutional government. Tyrrell also explores the question of under what circumstances, if any, a monarch may forfeit his title to the crown. The reigns considered include those of King William, the Norman, King James II, King William and Queen Mary, King Charles I, and others. Tyrrell (1643-1718) was a Whig historian and a friend of John Locke. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Zweite französische Ausgabe von Robinsons ursprünglich anonymer Schrift "Account of Sueden, together with an Extract of the History of that Kingdom" (1694). Der fingierte Verlag ist identisch mit der am Titel der ersten französischen Übersetzung von 1695 genannten. Robinson hatte fast 30 Jahre als englischer Geschäftsträger in Stockholm gelebt; sein Werk bildete über ein Jahrhundert lang die Hauptquelle für das Schweden- und allgemein das Skandinavienbild in England, zumal die nordischen Kriege eben die internationale Aufmerksamkeit auf Nordeuropa lenkten. - Der englische Diplomat und Bischof John Robinson (1650-1723) hatte seine Heimat 1713 auf dem Kongress von Utrecht vertreten und dort als erster den Frieden unterzeichnet, der den Spanischen Erbfolgekrieg beendete. 1718 bemühte er sich gemeinsam mit dem schwedischen Botschafter, Graf Gyllenberg, um eine Union der englischen und schwedischen Kirchen, die allerdings am Widerstand der schwedischen Bischöfe scheiterte, denen der englische Protestantismus zu calvinistisch war. - Durchgehend gebräunt bzw- braunfleckig; der Einband etwas berieben, Ecken bestoßen, Rücken alt ergänzt.

First published in 1712, Woodes's journal was an immediate success and is widely considered to be "a buccaneering classic" (Hill). Born in Bristol around 1679, Rogers made an advantageous marriage in 1705, his wife being the daughter of Admiral Whetstone, commander in chief in the West Indies. This may well have stood him in good stead when he proposed to the merchants of Bristol a scheme to challenge the French and Spanish monopoly of trade in the South Sea. "Two merchant ships, the Duke and the Duchess, were fitted out. A number of noted officers were included, perhaps the most noteworthy b … [Click Below for Full Description]

A Description of the Officinal Simples, with their Virtues and Preparations, Galenical and Chymical. III. The Officinal Compositions. IV. Extemporaneous Prescriptions. London: A. Bell, 1718. First edition. xvi, 618, [54 ] pp. Octavo, nineteenth-century half leather, somewhat rubbed and worn. Quincy's name crossed out in ink on title and dedication; half-inch tear to edge of first four leaves; spotting and soil passim. This popular and encyclopedic English Dispensatory ran to twelve editions by 1749. Quincy was a London apothecary, trained in Edinburgh, who had little respect for other pharmaceutical writers. From the Preface to this work: "Although dispensatory writers and publishers of recipes have been at all times very numerous. the least able have fallen upon this task. That most persons are fond of works of this kind is manifest from their esteem even of the worst, and the universal reception of Salmon's, which are as bad as they are voluminous," Quite scarce.

Hartung, Philippo [ Hartung, Philipp von ]
Sumptibus Joannis Christophori Lochneri, bibliopolae Norimbergae [ Nuremburg ], 1718, 3rd edition. Later half calf over marbled boards, VG. ht+tp+[viii]+378+[v]+tp+[x]+456+[iv]pp, folio. Index to each part, solidly rebound in a late 19th century binding, slightly trimmed in the rebind which has not affected the text but has reduced the margins a little & trimmed an ownership signature on the title to the point of illegibility, pages generally a little yellowed with the occasional foxing, ink stamp of a Jesuit Library on the endpaper & title & an old small library bookplate of the same on the pastedown, a nice copy. Printed in double column. Hardback , no dustjacket. ¶ Collected sermons, of the popular Bohemian Jesuit preacher Philip von Hartung [ 1629 - 1682 ]. 'The sermons of Philip von Hartung are very unequal; some of them are polished gems, others are very rough diamonds; but none are without value. The preacher had his mind stored with matter, but he was wanting in the art of nicely digesting it, and reproducing what fermented in his brain' [ Baring Gould - Post Medieval Preachers ]. There are 3 sermons for each Sunday & Feast day - one each for a rural, urban & courtly congregation respectively. Those for the rural audience, where Hartung no doubt was most at ease, are the best. 'The rustic sermons are capital. He preaches on broad facts of religion, Sunday after Sunday, with striking vigour, considerable beauty, and no small amount of originality'. [ibid].
