TOURNEFORT, Joseph Pitton de (1656-1708)
London: Printed for D. Browne, A. Bell, J. Darby, A Bettesworth, J. Pemberton, C. Rivington, J. Hooke, R. Cruttenden and T. Cox 1718. First Edition in English 2 vols, 4to,xlii, 402 + (iv), 398, (18) pp, folding map by J. Senex and 152 plates and maps, some foxing to plates as usual, cont. panelled calf, corners a little worn, expertly re-backed, morocco labels. A translation by John Ozell (d.1743) of Relation d'un Voyage du Levant first published in Paris the previous year. Tournefort, one of the greatest botanists of his generation and "Royal Botanist" to Louis XIV, was sent at the suggestion of M. le comte de Pontchartrain on a 2 year journey to gather information, not only on botany but other forms of natural history, as well as on the geography, commerce and social habits of the nations through which he passed. The journey was undertaken in the years 1700 to 1702 and he was accompanied by the German botanist, Andreas Gundesheimer and the artist, Claude Aubriet. Tournefort did not live to see the work published; he was the victim of a traffic accident in Paris.

Her antages de eksemplarer, som har citat af Ruffus Ephesius på titelbladet, at være blandt de første tryk. Vores eksemplar har følgende karakteristika: 1. Rufus-citatet på titelbladet - 2. Titelbladets verso har kun et stort trykkermærke (uden citater).

LE BRUYN, Cornelius.
Amsterdam: Les Freres Wetstein, 1718. 2 volumes, folio (330 × 206 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, skilfully rebacked with the original spines laid down, new red and green labels, spines gilt in compartments, edges sprinkled red. From the library of the Earl of Camden, armorial bookplates and press-marks to the front pastedowns. Slightly rubbed on the boards, light toning, but a very good set. Allegorical frontispiece by Picart, portrait of Le Bruyn by G. Valck after G. Kneller, 114 plates, 14 of them folding, and 57 double-page, and 43 full-page showing 491 views, 3 folding maps, engraved headpiece and 44 illustrations, half-titles bound in, titles printed in red and black. First edition in French of one of the principal accounts of Russia published during the 18th century, originally published in Dutch, Amsterdam 1711. Cornelis de Bruyn, the Dutch traveller and painter, also known for his account of his journey through the Levant, was the first traveller to whom the tsar gave permission to make drawings of the towns and villages in the Russian provinces, and the superb engravings are from on-the-spot drawings by the author. The book is arguably the best authority for costumes of the era in the countries visited, for the Assyrian antiquities of Persepolis at that time, and for the views of cities and their natural history. His account also "details the route taken by Everard Ysbrants Ides, the Russian ambassador to China, and contains an account of his encounter with William Dampier at Batavia. In 1714 De Bruyn published a pamphlet discussing the differences between his e … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

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]
