         A Collection of Calculations and Remarks relating to the South Sea Scheme & Stock . [bound with:] Some Computations relating to the Proposed Transferring of Eighteen Millions of the Fund of the South Sea Company . [Bound with:] A Computation of the Value of South-Sea Stock

      London 1721 - 119,[3],121-140; 11, [1]; 23, [1]pp. Contemporary marbled paper covered boards, rebacked to style with period smooth tan calf Provenance: Kirkleatham Library (early booklabel) Important collection of works regarding the South Sea Bubble, written by a noted early critic. The first work bound into the above consists of four parts, each with separate titles and preceded by a general title as above and a dedication leaf: Some calculations relating to the proposals made by the South-Sea Company 1720 (pp.5-19); Some seasonable considerations for those, who are desirous, . to become proprietors of South-Sea stock 1720 (pp.21-35); Several calculations and remarks relating to the South-Sea scheme 1720 (pp.37-119); and An appendix to Mr Hutcheson's calculations. (pp.[2]-140). In the rear are two additional separately-printed works on the South Sea scheme. With no publisher or bookseller information on the titles, it is believed that Hutcheson's works were self-financed and distributed gratis. The first work above, published in March 1720 at the beginning of the frenzy, presciently forewarns against the rampant speculation and suggests the South Sea scheme to be a fraud. The final two works bound into this example were written in the midst or shortly following the fall in price of the stock, and detail some of the valuations and losses. See Dale, The First Crash (Princeton University Press, 2014) for a detailed discussion of Hutcheson, who he regards as the "hero" of the South Sea Bubble.

      first edition (thus)4to.[8], 111, [1 (blank)]pp. including the half-title, contemporary boldly mottled calf, double gilt fillet border on sides, spine panelled by raised bands with panels attractively gilt decorated, dark russet label, minor local silverfish damage to sides and front joint, slight cracking to front joint, else a very good handsome fresh copy.Rare.BRADSHAW 5524COPAC and OCLC together locate copies only in B.L., Cambridge (Bradshaw copy), Manchester, Glasgow, Bibliotheque Nationale and Univ. Dresden. N.L.I. holds a defective and mutilated copy."A rare volume", Lowndes (who describes a copy without the half-title). Broudin (d.1680), a Franciscan writer and lecturer, was born into the Bruodin (or MacBrody) family of Ballyhogan, Co. Clare, who were traditional chroniclers and genealogists to the O'Brien Kings of Thomond. After an education at the Irish college in Rome he moved in 1650 to Prague to join the Irish Franciscan community there. However in 1651 he left the Irish community and transferred to the Bohemian province where he lectured in theology and philosophy and occupied several influential positions. In 1675, accused of lobbying to become its provincial or head, he was expelled from the Bohemian province and rejoined the Irish province in Prague. He published there several theological and political works in the 1660s and 1670s of which Propugnaculum Catholicæ Veritatis (1669) is the most important. Bruodin's principal and polemical purpose in writing that massive work (circa 1200 pages) and extremely rare work much of which was devoted to Irish affairs and in particular to a spirited defence of Irish Catholicism, was to refute the writings of Thomas Carew, another Irish emigré priest who was based in Vienna and who had published a history of Ireland, Lyra sive Anacephalaeosis (1651 and second edition 1666). Carew by criticising Rinniccini, the critically influential papal nuncio to the Irish Confederate Catholics in the 1640s, had greatly offended many in the Irish emigré community. Bruodin supported Rinuccini's fundamentalist stance of non-accomodation with Ormond, the protestant Lord Lieutenant, and in the Propugnaculum attacked Carew's political views and the factual accuracy of the Lyra. A bitter and unedifying series of counter-attacking publications from both men ensued. This 1721 work consists of some passages from Propugnaculum Catholicæ Veritatis with some additions by the editor, one of the O'Neills. A reading of the 'Approbatio' to this book (where the author's name is spelt Brondin) seems to indicate that this is definitely a separate work, possibly previously unpublished, but Bradshaw said that it was "a garbled and falsified collection of certain passages from Propugnaculum .. with a few fresh things inserted by the editor". That editor was however the son of the exiled Phelim O'Neill so that this book, in either case, is a useful source on the current thinking of the leaders of the Irish emigré community, and any editorial deviation from the earlier version would be of special interest for that very reason. Our Latin is not good enough for more than speculation here, but whatever the truth in that regard this is a very rare book indeed. The bookplate is probably that of Lady Evelyn, a member of the Evelyn family, descendants of John Evelyn whose library was sold by Christie's in 1977 and which contained a number of books with the bookplate of a Lady Evelyn.

Decorative title cartouche and strapwork cartouche to Advertisement with scale below to upper sheet; Lower sheet with additional title to upper blank margin; scale to lower left ; Inset plan of environs of Nice to lower right. Dark impression; bright full wash colour; printed on heavy paper; light toning; Covens & Mortier as a firm existed between 1721-1778, taking over the business of Pierrre Mortier. Johannes / Jean Covens and Cornelius Mortier were brothers- in- law following the former's marriage to Mortier's sister Agatha in 1721, when they also formally went in to partnership. Under the Covens and Mortier imprint, Cornelius and Jean republished the works of the great 17th and early 18th century Dutch and French cartographers De L'Isle, Allard, Jansson, & De Wit. The firm would become one of the most prolific Dutch publishing concerns of the 18th century. The company would pass down through the Covens family as Mortier had no children, changing the name to Covens & Zoon until Pieter Mortier IV a great grandson of the original founder joined the firm and saw the name restored to Mortier Covens & Zoon. ( See Koeman I p45). Guillaume de l'Isle (1675-1726) was the son of a cartographer and pupil of Jean Dominique Cassini, who, among other important contributions, aligned the study of astronomy to the study of geography. Under Cassini's direction, observations were made from locations all over the world that enabled longitudinal calculations to be made with much greater accuracy. De l'Isle carried on this exacting work with remarkable dedication and integrity, constantly revising and improving his maps. While precision was his primary goal, his maps are invariably elegant and attractive. The French cartographer Guillaume de l'Isle (1675−1726) was admitted into the French Académie Royale des Sciences when he was 27 years old and subsequently became the first person to receive the title Premier Géographe du Roi (principal geographer to the king). At the time de l'Isle was engaged in cartographic research, the prestige of a cartographer and the authority of his maps were gauged by the veracity of the cartographer's sources, i.e., the explorers and travelers who reported details of their travels to geographers and cartographers in Europe. Many of de l'Isle's maps were reissued by the publishing house of Cornelis Mortier and Johannes Coven in Amsterdam in their Atlas Nouveau, which was published in multiple editions, the earliest of which dates to 1730.

( See Koeman I p45). Jacques-Nicolas Bellin (1703-1772) was one of the most important and prolific French cartographers of the mid-eighteenth century, in the service of the French Hydrographical Office. He was appointed the first Ingenieur Hydrographe de la Marine, and also Official Hydrographer to the French King. Bellin was responsible for an enormous output of charts and maps. In a large folio format, he issued a volume of sea-charts of France, the Neptune François, and several sea-atlases of the World, including the Atlas Maritime and the Hydrographie Française. These large charts were amongst the best of the period and continued being reissued throughout the second half of the eighteenth century. In smaller format, he issued the Petit Atlas Maritime (1764),which contained 580 detailed charts, as well as maps to illustrate l'Abbe Prevost's Histoire Generale des Voyages (1746-1757). Bellin also produced a substantial number of important separately issued maps, particularly reflecting continuing discoveries and political events in the Americas.

      Artist: Probst Johann Friedrich ( - 1781) Augsburg; issued in: Augsburg; date: ca 1750 1721 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 27 x 39,5; - description: Representation of St. Petersburg and the river Neva; -vita of the artist: Georg Balthasar Probst (1732?1801), Georg Balthasar Probst was a German artist, engraver and publisher in Augsburg, a major European publishing center in the 17th and 18th centuries. He produced architectural views of places around the world intended as vues d?optiques, which were published in various places during the last half of the 18th century, including Paris, Augsburg and London. He was also known for his portraits.Probst came from an extended family of printers, whose businesses can all be traced back to the publishing firm of Jeremias Wolff (1663-1724). After Wolff's death his firm was continued as ?Wolff?s Heirs? by his son-in-law Johann Balthasar Probst (1689-1750). After Probst?s death in 1750, his descendants divided the business and published under their own imprints: Johann Friedrich Probst (1721-1781), Georg Balthasar Probst (1732-1801) and Johann Michael Probst. Another part of the Wolff-Probst firm was acquired by the Augsburg publisher Johann Georg Hertel (1700-1775), whose son Georg Leopold Hertel had married a sister of the Probsts. In the next generation, Georg Mathäus Probst (d. 1788), son of Georg Balthasar Probst, also became an engraver of portraits and views.

      London Carington Bowles next the Chapter House in St Pauls Churchyard 1721 - First edition. Folio (52 x 37.5 cm), engraved allegorical title-page, 21 engraved naval plates, one double-page, one folding, contemporary sprinkled calf, sometime rebacked, neat restoration to corners and edges, front free endpaper creased, light staining to blank outer margin of first plate, pinhole paper flaw to one plate, an excellent example. A rare and beautiful series of prints of the ships that built an empire. "During the first quarter of the eighteenth century there flourished Thomas Baston, who deserves our attention because he has left us some very spirited illustrations of English men-of-war. Himself a seascape painter, he also did a few etchings from his own designs, but some of his pictures were engraved by Harris, Kirkall, and others. A desirable Baston series is that entitled Twenty-two Prints of several of the Capital ships of his Majesties Royal Navy, which will be found in the Print Room of the British Museum." (E.

Aunque ya en 1760 Griselini hizo evidente que Sarpi no era el autor(1), la atribución ha venido persistiendo, tanto porque el nombre de Sarpi se mantuvo en las portadas de las distintas ediciones (haciendo que, por ejemplo, Graesse y, más recientemente, Conlon, mantuviesen la atribución), como porque el texto fue incluido en diferentes ediciones de obras completas de Sarpi. También ha ayudado el que, una vez sabido que no era de Sarpi, el texto fue dejado de lado, desechado del interés erudito como si resultar no ser obra de Sarpi fuese suficiente para borrar el interés de su contenido. La obra, de autor desconocido, había circulado por Italia en el s. XVII en manuscritos con variantes de redacción, pero cuyo el título se mantenía como de 'Consolazione della mente nella tranquilita de coscienza'(2). Su contenido no podía ser más polémico ya que, en la primera parte, se debate si el Papa y la Iglesia tienen capacidad de excomulgar, en qué casos y si la excomunón puede recurrirse. Si tiene más autoridad el Papa o el Concilio. Si un príncipe o una república libre pueden ser destituidos de sus estados mediante excomunión; si la excomunión es compatible con la libertad eclesiástica y si esta libertad es solo de la Iglesia o se extiende a sus pastores. Si un príncipe puede exigirle diezmos al clero, si tiene derecho de por sí a juzgar a eclesiasticos criminales y, por fin, si existe la infalibilidad papal. En todo el debate son múltiples las ocasiones en que se trae a colación el Concilio de Trento. Unas veces para criticar sus decretos, no pocas para criticar al Papa por ser el primero en no acatarlos. La segunda parte, en cambio, se destina a la aplicación práctica de la teoría desarrollada en la primera para rebatir y negar cualquier capacidad del Papa de influir o de decidir sobre la República de Venecia, desde su pretensión de hacer prevalecer la protección pontificia sobre miembros del clero que cometiesen delitos, hasta la de controlar el tráns [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Paris, Henry Charpentier, Jacques Josse et Pierre Prault, 1721, in 8°, de 2ff. 172 pp. 2ff., pl. veau marbré époque, dos orné, chaînette dorée sur les plats, coiffes et coins lèg. frottés, qq. taches (ex-libris gravé Victor de Laprade, académicien) Victor de Laprade fut professeur à la faculté de Lyon, élu à l'Académie française au fauteuil d'Alfred de Musset en 1858 et député du Rhône de 1871 à 1873. Ses poésies sont inspirées par Chateaubriand et Lamartine. Il était l'ami du philosophe A. Blanc de Saint-Bonnet. Seconde édition imprimée à Carpentras quelques mois après la rarissime édition originale marseillaise saisie dès sa parution. C'est une relation détaillée et fidèle de l'effroyable épidémie de peste qui frappa Marseille et la Provence en 1720. C'est la dernière grande épidémie de peste enregistrée en France. "Le Grand-Saint-Antoine", un bateau en provenance du Levant semble être à l'origine de l'épidémie. La peste s'étend rapidement et entraîne près 40 000 décès sur 90 000 habitants, puis en Provence où elle fait près de 100 000 victimes sur une population de 400 000 habitants. L'enlèvement des cadavres du quartier de la Tourette par les galériens de l'Arsenal, mobilisés à cet effet sous les ordres du chevalier Roze constitue un fait majeur de ce tragique évènement. Marseille n'est pas la seule cité atteinte par l'épidémie qui touche également Arles, Aix-en-Provence, Toulon, puis Allauch, Cassis, Aubagne, Alès et Avignon. Coste estime que "cette relation constitue l'une des trois sources essentielles pour l'historiographe de la peste de Marseille" ¶ cf. J. Coste, Représentations et comportements en temps d'épidémie dans la littérature imprimée de peste (1490-1725), p.54 etc.

Out of which , Three Tales are added which were never before Printed; by John Urry, Student of Christ-Church, Oxon,. Deceased: Together with a Glossary, by a Student of the same College. To the Whole is prefixed The Author's Life, newly written, and a Preface, giving an Account of this Edition.

      First Urry Edition. Folio (395x250mm). pp. [52], 626, 81 glossary, [1, errata]. Engraved portraits of Urry and Chaucer by Pigné and Vertue respectively. Each of The Canterbury Tales is illustrated with an engraving of the pilgrim and throughout, there are very pretty headpieces, tailpieces, fleurons and initials. Contemporary panelled calf, decorated in blind, recently and expertly rebacked. Spine lavishly decorated and lettered ("Chaucer's Works") in gilt, six raised bands and seven compartments. The contents are very good. The front pastedown has the armorial bookplate of Lord Kennet of the Dene. Kennet, has made pencil notes in the margins in a few places where he has taken exception to a biographical note or an editorial decision. In particular "Certaine Balades" are noted to be "Not Chaucer" or "Why Here?" and he flatly contradicts Urry's claim that Chaucer was at Cambridge and disputes the date of birth which Urry gives as 1328 (it is 1343). He has also written (in pencil) on the ffep a note listing those works in the book not by Chaucer. This is an excellent, fresh, tight copy of Urry's celebrated and perhaps notorious edition of Chaucer which was the first to use Roman rather than Gothic type. The three added stories are The Coke's Tale of Gamelyn; The Merchant's Second Tale, or the History of Beryn; and The Adventure of the Pardoner and Tapster at the Inn at Canterbury.Before the early century, Chaucer scholarship and biography was incomplete and haphazard. Urry's edition was the first that took all published versions of Chaucer's work and all available manuscripts and collated the various versions to establish what was thought to be Chaucer's intent. It was also one of the first full biographies of Chaucer and remained the standard "Life" until Sir Harris Nicolas's biography in 1844. Urry received the license to publish this edition in 1714, but died before completing it. Thomas Ainsworth took on the project, but also died. Timothy and William Thomas finished it, with Timothy assembling the preface explaining the scholarship and the glossary "explaining the obsolete and difficult words in Chaucer." This frequent passing of the editorial baton clearly affected the quality of the work and Urry's edition has long been criticised for its somewhat fast and loose approach to the texts. However, this an important book in the history of Chaucer scholarship and this copy is a particularly fine example.

It includes biographical information on famous legal scholars. This book includes Johann Fichard’s “Vitae Recentiorum”, writings of Marci Mantuae, J.B. Gazalupis, Alberici Gentilis, and Matthew Gribaldi Mophae, each of whom contributed important works to judicial literature. Panziolus was a 16th-century Italian jurist and lawyer. This book is often considered ‘the first legal literary history written by a German with a reliable overview of the stock of juridical literature of the time.’ (Stintzing-L.)
