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, 1711–29). 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".

Die gründliche Bearbeitung der ganzen Chirurgie von der einfachen Wundbehandlung bis zur größten Operation, und die sorgfältige Darstellung des gesamten Instrumentariums, war ein bedeutender Fortschritt.

Es ist eines der ersten vollständigen Handbücher der Chirurgie und enthält einige der schönsten chirurgischen Kupferstiche der medizinischen Literatur überhaupt. Eine ganze Reihe heute noch gebräuchlicher Instrumente werden hier erstmalig vorgestellt. - Lorenz Heister (1693-1758), geboren in Frankfurt, studierte bei Ruysch, Albinus u. Boerhaave. Er war Professor der Anatomie und Chirurgie in Altdorf bei Nürnberg und Helmstedt. Seine Privatbibliothek umfasste 12.000 Bände und ca. 500 chirurgische Instrumente, teilweise aus Silber gefertigt, waren in seinem Besitz. - Im Gegensatz zu den lateinischen und fremdsprachlichen Ausgaben sind alle deutschen Ausgaben selten und gesucht. - - - Ver<y rare first Edition! - Heister's work on surgery became a standard text book and went through many editions. It was translated into Latin, English, Dutch, French, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese. Heister was the leading surgeon of the time and the founder of scientific surgery in Germany.

        Libellus de materia medica et remediorum formulis, quae serviunt aphorismis de cognoscendis et curandis morbis.

      . 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.

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.

        Carte de la Nouvelle France, ou se voit le cours des Grandes Rivieres de S. Laurens & de Mississipi aujour d'hui S. Louis, Aux Environs desquelles se trouvent les Etats, Pays, Nations, Peuples &c

      Guedeville, Paris 1719 - The map is from the " Atlas Historique." This map is Chatelain's reduced version of N. De Fer's very important four-sheet map of 1718. It is one of the most informative map of French possessions in North America in the early 18th century. The map has an Inset plan and view of Quebec which is enclosed in an extremely decorative cartouche. At the top left of the map is large scale map of the Mississippi Delta and Mobile Bay. The Louisiana and Mississippi valley areas were based on De l'Isle's manuscript map of 1701. The geography of New England and Eastern Canada originates with Franquelin. The map is filled with wildlife, scenes and views of Indians hunting and in their villages, and the oceans are embellished with many ships, canoes and sea monsters. The map was issued to promote the recently established 'Compagnie Francoise Occident', which was created to repay the debt of Louix XIV and offered inducements to encourage settlement in Louisiana., Size : 435x500 (mm), 17.125x19.625 (Inches), Hand Colored, 0 Very Good, upper margin extended.

        Carte du Canada ou de la Nouvelle France, & des Découvertes qui y ont été faites

      Chez L'Honoré & Châtelain, Amsterdam 1719 - An important and fascinating map of Canada from Châtelain's celebrated 'Atlas Historique' This very finely engraved and epistemologically interesting map was one of the most important maps of Canada printed during its time, and was included in Châtelain's Atlas Historique. It is largely derived from Guillaume de L'Isle's famous 1703 map of Canada, and the geography of the Great Lakes, eastern Canada and New England is quite accurate for the time. The numerous trading posts and missions of New France and the major towns of the adjacent British colonies are labeled. The area around Hudson's Bay is shown to be inhabited by native tribes referred to as the "Christinaux or Kilistinons," while Labrador is home to the "Eskimaux." Interestingly, the map features a number of notes specifically referring to the names of explorers and the dates in which they discovered certain places, such as the reference to 'Nouveau Danemarc', discovered by the Danish explorer Jan Munk in 1619. The depiction of the upper Mississippi and Ohio basins is also quite detailed, noting the position of the French fort of 'St. Louis' or 'Crèvecouer' near the present-day site of Peoria, Illinois. Perhaps the most fascinating aspect of the map is its portrayal of the "Rivière Longue," one of the most sensational and enduring cartographic misconceptions ever devised. This imaginary river was reported to flow from the 'Pays des Gnacsitares' in the far west, promising the best route through the interior of the continent, supposedly placing one within close reach of the Pacific Ocean. It is a product of the imagination of the Baron Lahontan, an entertaining and roguish French adventurer, whose best-selling travel narrative Nouveaux voyages dans l'Amérique septentrionale (1703) convinced many of the world's greatest intellects of the existence of this mythical waterway. The text, 'Remarque Historique' that fills the northwestern part of the map describes the history of New France from the days of Jacques Cartier to contemporary times. Kershaw, Early Printed Maps of Canada II:334, plate 215. Copper-engraved map, in excellent condition. Sheet size: 18 x 21 5/8 inches.

        South America: With federal remarks. Dedicated to the Earl of Sunderland

      London 1719 - Herman Moll (1654-1732) &#147;South America: With federal remarks. Dedicated to the Earl of Sunderland.&#148; From The World described; or a New and Correct Sett of Maps. London, 1719 Engraving with original hand color Sheet size: 40 1/2" x 25"; 30" x 46 ¼" framed Herman Moll came to England from the Netherlands shortly after 1680 and became one of the most prolific cartographers of the first part of the eighteenth century. Early in his career, he used his skills as an engraver to obtain work from the cartographer Moses Pitt, among others. He had a knack for making interesting friends and involving himself in unusual projects, as he provided maps for Daniel Defoe&#146;s Robinson Crusoe and Jonathan Swift&#146;s Gulliver&#146;s Travels. In 1689 he established his own London shop, and maps of a uniquely Moll character began to appear during Queen Anne&#146;s reign. His individual style of mapmaking grew increasingly more distinct as his career progressed. Moll&#146;s maps are noted for their elaborate design, clarity of lettering and numerous legends on the map&#146;s face. These lengthy writings give historical information about the geography, inhabitants, and overall particulars of the area shown. His impressive body of maps and atlases constitute some of the finest examples of early British cartography and summation of British knowledge at the time. Each is beautifully rendered and has great historical significance. Very few English mapmakers had made a name for themselves in the 16th and 17th centuries, because Dutch cartographers were generally so far ahead of their competition that challenging them seemed an insurmountable task. In the early 18th century, however, British cartography began a resurgence and Britain eventually displaced Holland as the most advanced map-producing nation. This is due in large measure to Britain&#146;s role in colonization, which by this time far superseded that of the Dutch and most other nations. With government surveyors working to chart colonies and potential colonies in distant lands, the British cartographers had a degree of access to geographical information that their foreign competitors did not. Another factor in the revival of British cartography was the immigration of Dutch mapmakers like Hermann Moll, who gained his expertise in his native country, and then applied that knowledge and experience to the sophisticated geographical information he was now privy to in Britain. With respect to accuracy and beauty, his maps were among the most impressive to be produced in the early 18th century, during the dynamic era of the British Enlightenment, and served as models for his fellow cartographers in Britain. In the early 1700&#146;s, Herman Moll along with a group of peers decided to explore an idea they called the South Sea development. What they envisioned was an expansion of British trade to South America as well as the eastern Pacific Ocean. Throughout the years Moll printed several maps that publicized the location, which in part added to the interest in the area. In 1719, he produced this map of South America with each country carefully outlined and distinguished by various colors. In addition, Moll included certain annotations around the coast of the continent. Included within the map is an interesting detail located in the bottom left corner. It is a depiction of a location called Potosi, a region that received a wonderful gift from nature: an incredible amount of silver located in a moderate sized mountain in what we now call southern Bolivia. Having only mined the silver when it was necessary, it came as a shock to the natives when the Spanish colonizers began to ravage the resources. By the middle of the 1500s, the silver became a magnet for settlers looking for money. Potosi, a word meaning high place, became synonymous with wealth and splendor in the modern world. As a result, Hermann Moll included the location on his map hoping to entice the public into the interest in South America.

Vs., erstes Frontispiz fehlt, Papier tlw. gebräunt, tlw. etw. stockfl. Sinold: Philipp Balthasar S. gen. v. Schütz, entstammte dem alten berühmten Adelsgeschlechte der Sinolde von Schütz und wurde am 5. Mai 1657 auf dem hessisch-darmstädtischen Schlosse Königsberg bei Gießen geboren, wo sein Vater damals hessischer Oberamtmann war, der nachmals als lüneburgischer Minister und Kanzler starb (s. o.). Der Sohn erhielt seine Vorbildung auf dem Gymnasium zu Weißenfels, das damals der Rector Christian Weise leitete, und studirte dann in Jena die Rechte. Darauf führte ihn eine längere Reise durch Italien, und hier trat er zu Florenz in die Gardecavallerie des Herzogs von Tosccma ein, in der er fast zwei Jahre Kriegsdienste that. Heimgekehrt nach Deutschland, weilte er mehrere Jahre in Leipzig als Privatgelehrter und gab hier eine Zeitschrift ?Die europäische Fama? (1704) heraus, in der er die Politik vom christlichen Standpunkte aus beleuchtete. Fortsetzungen dieser Zeitschrift von Anderen erschienen später als ?Neue europäische Fama? (Leipzig 1735 ff.) und ?Neueste europäische Fama? (Gotha 1760 ff.). Im Jahre 1704 lieferte er auch die erste Ausgabe des bekannten ?Zeitungs-Lexikons?, das später von Hübner in Hamburg, von Jäger, Mannert u. A. vielfach umgearbeitet worden ist. In demselben Jahre war S. mit dem Titel eines Raths nach Köstritz berufen worden als Haushofmeister des jungen Grafen von Reuß-Köstritz und als Lehendirector für sämmtliche reußische Lande; doch schon im folgenden Jahre trat er als Hofmeister in die Dienste der verwittweten Herzogin von Sachsen-Merseburg zu Forst in der Lausitz, und blieb hier bis 1711. Dann nahm er eine Stelle als Regierungsrath bei dem Herzoge Karl von Württemberg-Oels zu Bernstadt in Schlesien an und schrieb während seiner hiesigen Amtsthätigkeit unter dem Namen Irenicus Ehrenkron seine noch jetzt geschätzte ?Schlesische Kirchenhistorie? (II, 1715). Im Jahre 1718 berief ihn der Graf von Hohenlohe-Pfedelbach zum Geheimrath und Präsidenten aller seiner Collegien nach Pfedelbach bei Oehringen im Württembergischen, von wo er 1727 als gräflich Solms?scher Geheimrath nach Laubach kam. In diesem Amte verblieb er 15 Jahre lang, bis er als 85jähriger Greis am 6. März 1742 von dieser Erde schied. S. war auch Mitglied der fruchtbringenden Gesellschaft, in der er den Namen ?Faramond? führte. Als solches hat er eine ganze Reihe satyrischer Schriften verfaßt, in denen er mit heiligem Ernste die Thorheiten seiner Zeitgenossen geißelte. Bedeutender ist er als erbaulicher Schriftsteller, und als solcher führte er den Namen Amadeus Creutzberg. Von seinen zwölf Erbauungsschriften haben besonders die ?Gottseligen Betrachtungen auf alle Tage des ganzen Jahrs? (1729), ein Buch, das dem Könige Friedrich Wilhelm I. von Preußen zur täglichen Lectüre diente, ihren Werth bis in die Neuzeit hinein [401] behauptet und sind 1856 abermals neu herausgegeben worden. Wie in diesen Erbauungsschriften, so offenbart sich auch in den poetischen Arbeiten Sinold?s der Einfluß Spener?s, und man zählt deshalb S. gern dem pietistischen Dichterkreise zu. Eine Sammlung von 143 seiner Lieder gab er während seiner Amtsthätigkeit in Pfedelbach heraus unter dem Titel ?Amadei Creutzbergs geistliche und andere erbauliche Poesien, Lieder, Sonette und Epigrammata? (1720); acht davon erlangten durch Aufnahme in Gesangbücher weitere Verbreitung. (ADB) 1100 gr. [Attributes: First Edition]

Certainly the binding has the appearance of his work and, specifically, the cornerpieces are very reminiscent of devices that he used.Nicholas Trivet (c.1257 &#150; c.1334) was a Dominican friar and scholar. Manuscripts exist of various works by him, though this is one of the few that subsequently ever made it into print. The work chronicles the history of the early Plantagenet dynasty, from King Stephen to Edward I. This edition is edited by Anthony Hall, an Oxford scholar who had previously edited a 1709 edition of the work of the English antiquarian John Leland "Commentarii de Scriptoribus Britannicis". His postscript at the rear of the volume indicates his intention to publish the continuation of the manuscript from which he was working, the "Annalium Continuatio" appeared 3 years later.
