        Mispelzweig.

      . Aquarell und Pinsel in Grau, auf Velin. 15,8:20,2 cm. Provenienz: Sammlung St. K. im Kreis, nicht bei Lugt.. Die Tochter des Tapetenmalers und Radierers David Friedrich (1719-1766) war Schülerin ihres Vaters und ihres Bruders, des Historienmalers Alexander Friedrich (1744-1793). Bei ersterem erlernte sie das Zeichnen und die Anwendung der Wasserfarben, bei ihrem Bruder die Ölmalerei. Darüber hinaus bildete sie sich durch Beobachtung der Natur autodidaktisch weiter. Beachtung fand sie schon früh durch Chr.L. von Hagedorn (1712-1780), Kunstkritiker und Direktor der Dresdener Akademie. Vom Kurfürsten Friedrich August III. wurde sie 1770/71 zur Pensionärin (Stipendiatin) der Dresdener Akademie mit einer jährlichen Gratifikation von 25 Talern ernannt, 1774 wurde sie Ehrenmitglied. Schon zu Lebzeiten fand sie viel Anerkennung und war seit 1776 auf nahezu jeder Akademie-Ausstellung in Dresden mit ihren Werken vertreten. 1783 wurde ihre Stipendium-Gratifikation erhöht, zugleich erfolgte die Ernennung zur Unterlehrerin für Stilleben an der Akademie. Die Künstlerin lebte jahrelang in einer Hausgemeinschaft mit ihrem Kollegen Johann Eleazar Zeissig, gen. Schenau (1737-1805) und unterrichtete bis 1812 zahlreiche Schüler und Schülerinnen. Ihre Zeichnungen, Aquarelle und Gouachen sind u.a. im Kupferstichkabinett in Dresden, der Graphiksammlung der Kunstsammlungen Weimar zu finden. Auch in der Sammlung von König Friedrich August III. war sie mit Arbeiten vertreten.

        Lex Constitutionis: Or, The Gentleman's Law, Being, a Compleat

      1719. A Legal Guide for "Gentlemen of All Ranks" Jacob, G[iles] [1686-1744]. Lex Constitutionis: Or, The Gentleman's Law. Being, A Compleat Treatise of All the Laws and Statutes Relating to the King, And the Prerogative of the Crown; The Nobility, And House of Lords; House of Commons; Officers of State; The Exchequer and Treasury; Commissioners and Officers of the Customs; Of the Excise; Of the Post-Office; Stamp-Office; Forfeited Estates; Publick Accounts; The Navy-Office; War-Office; Lieutenancy of Counties; Justices of Peace, &c. Wherein Near One Hundred Authors of the Best Reputation, Both Ancient and Modern, On the Subject, Have Been Consulted, And are Referr'd to. And also, An Introduction to the Common Law of England, With Respect to Tenures of Lands, Descents, Marriage-Contracts, Coverture, &c. Of Property, Creation and Forfeiture of Estates; Trials of Offenders, Courts at Westminster, &c. To Which are Added, Under Their Proper Heads, The Manner of Passing Bills in Both Houses of Parliament, the Judicature of the Lords; Variety of Adjudg'd Cases; And some Curious History of Antiquity. [London]: Printed by Eliz. Nutt and R. Gosling, (assigns of Edward Sayer, Esq;) for B. Lintot, 1719. [ii], [v]-xiv, 360, [12] pp. Octavo (7-1/2" x 4-3/4"). Recent period-style calf, blind panels to boards, raised bands and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed. Moderate toning to text, faint dampspotting in places, internally clean. A handsome copy. * First edition. In his preface, Jacob indicates that he did not write this treatise on England's Constitution for the landed gentry exclusively, but for "gentlemen of all ranks," that is, the literate general public. This distinction is significant. Jacob, though certainly interested in boosting sales by attracting the widest audience possible, was an idealist who believed that widespread knowledge of the law would help create a more just society. This is also evident in his other publications, such as, A Treatise of Laws (1721), The Common Law Common-Placed (1726), Every Man His Own Lawyer (1736). Another edition of the Lex Constitutionis was published in 1737. Sweet & Maxwell, A Legal Bibliography of the British Commonwealth 1:102 (48). English Short-Title Catalogue T137002.

Mit 2 Kupfertafeln. *Seltene, aus dem Spanischen ins Lateinische übersetzte Publikation mit den berühmten und bis heute umstrittenen mystischen Visionen "Mistica Ciudad de Dios" (deutsch: "Die mystische Stadt Gottes") der spanischen Franziskaneräbtissin und Mystikerin Maria de Jesus. - Teil 1 beginnt mit dem Prologus Galeatus des Josephus Ximenius, gefolgt von der Mystica civitas Dei mit den Annotationes des Frater Josephus Ximinez de Samaniego. Die Teile 2 und 3 ebenfalls mit umfangreichen Annotationes verschiedener Autoren. Am Schluß die "Vita venerabilis matris, sororis Mariae a Jesu". - María de Jesus de Agreda (1602-1665) war eine Visionärin und Äbtissin des Franziskanerinnenkonvents in der spanischen Ortschaft Agreda. Nachdem ihre Familie ihr bisheriges Wohnhaus zu einem Franziskanerinnenkloster umgewandelt hatte, wurde Maria nebst ihrer Mutter und Schwester Nonne dieses Konvents "Von der unbefleckten Empfängnis". Seit 1627 leitete sie diesen als Äbtissin. Bekannt wurde sie durch ihre Visionen über das Leben der Gottesmutter. Die erste Niederschrift hatte sie aus Angst vor der Inquisition vernichtet. Nach erneuten Visionen schrieb sie das Werk dann doch (in mehreren Bänden) auf. Es erschien 5 Jahre nach ihrem Tod 1670 unter dem Titel "Mistica Ciudad de Dios" in Madrid. Das Werk wurde bereits 1672 von der Inquisition beschlagnahmt, 1686 wieder freigegeben und danach bis ins 19. Jahrhundert mehrfach auf den Index gesetzt bzw. verboten und danach wieder erlaubt. Das Werk ist in der kath. Kirche bis heute umstritten, der bereits 1673 eingeleitete Prozeß zur Seligsprechung ist bis heute noch nicht abgeschlossen. Sie gilt trotz der Kontroversen als eine der herausragenden Gestalten der spanischen Spiritualität des 17. Jahrhunderts- Die 2 Kupfertafeln zeigen eine Szene ihrer Visionen und ein umrahmtes Halbporträt in Medaillon der Maria de Jesus. - Innendeckel und die ersten 5 Blatt im ersten Band mit kleinen Wurmstichen im weißen Unterrand, ansonsten durchgehend sauber und gut erhalten.

        The Political State of Great-Britain, For The Month of April, 1719. Containing in Particular

      London: Printed for the Author, and to be sold by T. Warner .... and A. Rocayrol, (1719). Title page plus pages [323] - 452. Disbound, linen tape on spine, taped into later plain wrappers. Title page trimmed at top, affecting the first word ("The"), a few chips to edges of wrappers, very good otherwise. Pages 443 - 444 carry an account of the death of the pirate Blackbeard (Edward Teach or Edward Thatch). This account, an extract from an Admiralty Office report, describes how Blackbeard was beheaded at the orders of Lieutenant Maynard, and his head "hung under the boltsprit of his Sloop, and carried in that manner to Virginia ...." Very scarce; the only recorded copy sold was in the Caren Archive (sold by Bonhams April 7, 2014, auction 21962, Treasures from The Caren Archive, Lot 37), and that copy wanted the title page, which is present here. The POLITICAL STATE is described thus in a popular account of the editor, Boyer: .... "[A] monthly periodical, The Political State of Great Britain, being an impartial account of the most material occurrences, ecclesiastical, civil, and military, in a monthly letter to a friend in Holland (38 volumes, 1711&#150;29). Its contents, which were those of a monthly newspaper, included abstracts of the chief political pamphlets published on both sides, and, like the Annals, is, both from its form and matter, very useful for reference. The Political State is, moreover, particularly noticeable as being the first periodical, issued at brief intervals, which contained a parliamentary chronicle, and in which parliamentary debates were reported with comparative regularity and with some approximation to accuracy".

Eine ganze Reihe heute noch gebräuchlicher Instrumente werden hier erstmalig vorgestellt. - Lorenz Heister (1693-1758), geboren in Frankfurt, studierte bei Ruysch, Albinus u. Boerhaave.

      . Lugduni Batavorum, Apud Isaacum Severinum, 1719, 8°, 12, 259, 45 pp, (1 p. Hi Libri Medici .. Is. Severinum), Pergamenteinband der Zeit; feines Exemplar.. The 'genuine edition' - the rare first edition of Boerhaave's collection of prescriptions ! - - Herman Boerhaave (1768-1738) "is remarkably moderate in the preface to his own edition that he wrote on 1 February 1719, and this moderation is in contrast to his sharp criticism of the pirated editions. In this preface he observes that a 'vir eruditus' in London had allowed Boerhaave's own collection of prescriptions to be published against his will and that many harmful errors had crept in. Therefore he felt obliged to publish the work himself with the necessary corrections and additions: 'so prompted, I revised and corrected it, and made some additions: use it therefore and be relieved from copying the work'. - - In order to guarantee the authenticity of the book he made the publisher Severinus sign personally every copy. The small book ran to 259 pages and was provided with an extensive index. It was eagerly received. Boerhaave himself published new editions in 1721 and in 1727, and in other countries it was frequently reprinted, even after Boerhaave's death. The last edition appeared in 1776." G.A. Lindeboom, 2nd. Ed., pp.79-80 - - "Preface dated February 18, 1719. Index of Samuel DuRy, doctor of medicine and practising physician. One finds on the inside of the titlepage of the first edition: "Auctor nulla hujus Libelli agnoscit exempla, nisi quae siut edita apud Bibliopolam, qui sum ipse nomen hic subscripsit. (Signature: I.

To which is prefix'd, an address to the Nobility and Gentry. By J. Evelyn, Esq." Pp. xxxvi, 325, contents [vii]. Engraved frontispiece, 9 further folding plates, a couple of in-text woodcuts, tailpieces etc. Superb binding, modern but in an appropriate style; quarter dark green polished calf over raised bands, marbled boards from original period marbled endpapers, with vellum tipped corners, burgundy spine label, gilt, hand-sewn head and tail bands. A beautifully crafted Binding. New end papers from genuine 18th century stock. Contents very good with clean pages.

Wise and London were partners in the Brompton Nursery, and were very highly regarded.

      3 p.l., 28 pp. 8vo, cont. calf (well-rebacked), spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Oxford: 1719. First edition of this very scarce posthumously published work. We learn from the Preface that there was considerable debate within the Oxford community regarding keeping St. Matthias&#39;s Day on the 24th or 25th of February in leap years. Wallis&#39;s text, from a manuscript written in 1684, was published to add support for the 24th as the preferable day. Fine copy. .

      Printed & Sold by Tho: Bowles next to the Chapter-house St. Paul?Äôs Church Yard; Sold by John Bowles at the Black Horse in Cornhill, London, 1719 - A city of meat eaters 610 by 1475mm (24 by 58 inches). Engraved map on three sheets, joined, parishes picked out in outline colour, extending north to south from Clerkenwell to Southwark, and west to east from Buckingham House to Stepney, list of streets and squares to left and right margins, trimmed to neatline, a few nicks and tears and some minor loss, skilfully repaired. Howgego 63 (1). Large and detailed plan of London.The map bears grid lines for ease of reference, the major public buildings such as Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament, St Paul's Cathedral, Buckingham House, and the Tower of London are represented as birds-eye views. The text upon the map gives the extent of London as "7500 Geometric paces, that is above 7 English Miles and a half" from west to east and "2500 paces, or 2 miles and a half" from north to south. There are about 5000 streets. The number of houses is calculated to be 110,000. The population is guessed at "by what is eaten": "There were in one Year, when it was less by two thirds [ie. in the mid seventeenth century], 67500 Beefs, 10 times as many Sheep, Besides Poultry &c. also every Year is brought into the River 400,000 at least Charldon of Coales". Also the number of "Buryings" was said to number 26,000 per year. The amount of ale and beer produced is said to be 20,000 barrels. Bowles acknowledges the source of these numbers as Sir William Petty (1623-1687), who through some crude statistical analysis calculated the population in the mid-seventeenth century. He estimated that there were 115,846 families and 695,076 souls; more than Paris, Rome, Rouen or Amsterdam, which were said to have some 500,000 souls. To the left of the text is a list of watermen and hackney carriage rates.Scale: 11 inches to 1 statute mile.
