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.

The voyages described herein date from 851 to 877! * "The abbot Eusebe Renaudot (1646-1720), author of this work, is undoubtedly the largest expert of Eastern languages at the end of the XVIIe century, mainly Arabic, Syriac, and Coptic" (Voltaire and China: Exhibition Catalogue, no. 46). * The first "relation" (p. 1-124) is said to be taken down from statements made by a merchant named Sulaiman, the second a continuation of the first, by Hasan Ibn Yazid and Abu Zaid Hasan. - "The written works of Sulaiman had a profound effect on many Arabic and Persian geographers, and are of exceptional importance to the student of early Islamic trade.

QUINCY, John
1718. QUINCY, John. PHARMACOPOEIA OFFICINALIS & EXTEMPORANEA; or, a Compleat English Dispensatory, in Four Parts. Containing: I. The Theory of Pharmacy, and the several Processes therein. II. 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.

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.

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].

[PETROWITZ (Alexis)]
S.l.n.d. [1718].. In-4, demi-maroquin noir moderne a la Bradel, 15 p., titre inclus. Rare document de l'epoque, concernant la fin tragique d'Alexis Petrowitz, "prince russe, fils de Pierre le Grand, ne a Moscou en 1690, mort en 1718. Son humeur sauvage, son attachement superstitieux aux anciens usages de la nation, le profond mepris qu'il professait pour les arts des peuples civilises, son opposition aux reformes operees par le czar, le perdirent dans l'esprit de ce prince, effraye de rencontrer dans son heritier presomptif, des dispositions si antipathiques aux vastes conceptions de son genie. Pour ne pas avoir a craindre de trouver en lui le destructeur de l'edifice qu'il avait passe sa vie a elever, Pierre le Grand exigea du Czarowitz sa renonciation au trone. Pendant un voyage du czar, Alexis s'enfuit a la cour de Vienne, puis a Naples, ou son pere finit par decouvrir sa retraite. Il l'engagea alors a revenir a Moscou, et, des que le prince fut arrive, il le fit juger par une assemblee des principaux membres de la noblesse et du clerge, et condamne a mort pour crime de lese-majeste ; mais il lui accorda presqu'en meme temps sa grace. Le malheureux prince mourut dans sa prison peu de temps apres. Pierre II, son fils, monta sur le trone en 1727". Cette relation est suivie de la traduction (de l'allemand) d'un traite d'alliance, conclu en 1514 entre l'empereur Maximilien premier et le "Grand Seigneur Basile; empereur et dominateur de tous les Pais Russiens... ". Seulement 2 exemplaires au CCFr Manque a a la BnF et a WorldCat..
