        38 autos de fe

      1721/1723, Madrid 1721 - "Inquisition/Judaica. Extraordinary Collection of Eighteenth Century Autos de Fe Bound in One Volume". 8vo.; 38 imprints bound together; contemporary Spanish calf. Fine condition. UNIQUE COLLECTION OF IMPRINTS FROM THE SPANISH INQUISITION. Offered here is a unique set of autos de fe that took place in 12 Spanish provinces (Murcia, Sevilla, Granada, Cordoba, Valladolid, Mallorca, Llerena, Valencia, Cuenca, Santiago de Compostela, and Toledo) and two in Portugal (Coimbra and Lisboa). Several of the 38 items offered, bound in one volume, are not held in the National Library of Spain. Palau does not even mention several of them. This is thus an incomparable group of documents on the Inquisition that are extremely rare due to their fragile nature, scarcity, and the fact that they were printed in very small runs. In the near fifty years we have been active in the rare book trade, from time to time we have come across this type of printed pamphlets. However, we have never seen such a copious collection, offered in one single volume, and in its original binding. The auto de fe was a public act organized by the Spanish Inquisition in which persons convicted by this tribunal publicly abhorred their sins or their jewish faith and gave public evidence of repentance By doing so they were reconciled with the Catholic Church and served as an example to the faithful who were gathered in the public square or the church where the event took place. The public was also incited to solemnly proclaim their adherence to the Catholic faith. What we have just described was the expressed purpose of the auto de fe in which, contrary to what is commonly believed, no one was executed. Rather, those who were condemned to death (repeat offenders) were delivered to the royal tribunals who were responsible for pronouncing the sentence of death. There were also autos de fe that were discreetly carried out behind closed doors inside the Inquisition, these were called autillos or small autos. A list of each of the titles included in the bound volume is available on request. (RF 593). vols. volumen(es)/volume(s) S.P. páginas [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Russian Empire. Carte Générale de l'Empire de Russie.

      Asia: Amsterdam. Covens et Mortier c1741. Copper engraved map on 2 sheets of the Russian Empire from Covens & Mortier's " Nieuwe Atlas, Inhoudennde vier Gedeeltens der Waereld.. " Original full wash colour; verso blank. The large map on 2 sheets, which can be joined, shows the whole of the Russian Empire of Peter the Great, from Finland in the West to Kamchatka in the East. Black and white copper engraved vignette to left upper corner with title on banner; black & white [as issued] strap work cartouches to lower left corner with explanation. Dark impression; bright full wash colour; printed on heavy paper, 2 sheets;soiling to right blank margin of first map; minor paper fault (thinning) to sea, only perceptable when held to light; old red crayon numbers to verso. 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. - Koeman I: C&M 8:90, [C&M 10] Asia Russian Empire Europe

( See Koeman I p45). Henry Popple (16?? - 1743) was a British cartographer active in the early part of the 18th century. Popple was a clerk with the Board of Trade and Plantations, the organization that governed Britain's colonies in America. With his father, grandfather, and brother all being employed the board of trade, the Popple family had a long history of association with the British colonial administration. Popple received his commission as a clerk at the board of trade in 1727, but resigned in the same year to take a position as the Cashier to Queen Anne. In 1730, the Board began requesting detailed maps of the entirety of the provinces and contiguous French and Spanish Dominions. Popple had begun work on the map in 1727. He continued to work on his great maps and a manuscript version of the Popple Map appeared in this very year. Popple issued an announcement for the map in 1731, but did not complete work until 1733. as he continued to update and refine the map. The Board of trade intended the Popple map to be a British response to Delisle's French mapping of North America, which presented boundaries that conflicted with British colonial ambitions. However, since Popple in fact based much of his map on Delisle's superior cartography, he also managed to copy many of the French political boundaries - to the detriment of the Board of Trade and its expansionist intentions. Although Popple's map was never approved by the Board, examples were rushed to each colonial governor and the map played a significant role in the cartographic history of North America. Popple cartographic endeavor began and ended with this singular map however, it significance was such that he must be considered in any list of significant British mapmakers. The large scale map was not a commercial success and did not sell well until after William Henry Toms and Samuel Harding took over publication in 1739. With the outbreak of the War of Jenkin's Ear, the map saw its commercial successes soar. In 1746, the rights to the map passed to Willdey and Austen, who published it until Austen's death in 1750. Various other printers produced versions of the map in smaller format of which the Covens and Mortier version is undoubtedly the most fine.

        A new institute of the imperial or, civil law. With notes shewing in some principal cases amongst other observations, how the common law, the laws of England, and the laws and customs of other nations differ from it. In four books. Composed for the use of some persons of quality. The third edition, corrected. By Tho. Wood, LL.D. Rector of Hardwick, Bucks, Commissary and Official of that archdeaconry. To which is added, as an introduction, a treatise of the first principles of laws in general; of their nature and design, and of the interpretation of them

      London: London: printed by W.B. for Richard Sare, at Gray's-Inn-Gate in Holborn. 1721., 1721. Book. Very Good. Leather. 3rd Edition. Description: 8vo (8 × 5¼ in): t-p., 144, xvi, [8], 414, [10] p. (the last page contains ads). Contemporary polished calf, decorated in blind, morocco label. · Register: 8º: [pi]1 ^[pi]B-K^8 A^8 a^4 B-2D^8 2E^4. · Condition: Slight wear to head and tail of spine, but generally well-preserved; signed on the title-page "Dudley Hussey"; the preliminary treatise moderately browned and foxed. · Comments: Third edition, the last in the author's lifetime and the first to contain the "Treatise on the first principles of the law." In the main work, Wood describes the civil law on its own terms, according to the Insitutes of Justinian, and gives comparative notes on English law. The preliminary treatise is much more theoretical and synthetic. Wood was learned and industrious, but lacked literary genius; like his Institute of the Common Law, the main work dwells much on detail while neglecting broader principles. Perhaps the work prefixed to this edition was meant to answer that criticism. Despite his short-comings, Wood is credited with recognizing the contribution of the civil law to the form and content of the common law, without giving it undue primacy. Dudley Hussey was a lawyer active in Dublin in the second half of the eighteenth century; he was elected recorder (a judicial office) of that city in 1784 and died the following year. · References: Johnson 208 (3 copies); Worrall 66; Bridgman 368; Marvin 743; S&M 1:613(16); Holdsworth, HEL 12:425-427; ESTC T117075..

        Druckgraphiken "Le Printemps" und "L'Été" nach Fran?ois Boucher (1703 - 1770) und Antoine Watteau (1684 - 1721).

      Vermutlich frühes 20. Jahrhundert. - Druckgraphiken im Format von 50 x 23 cm unter Passepartouts (Rahmenformat: 68 x 38 cm); jeweils unterzeichnet mit A. Watteau und F. Boucher. Stilistisch passende Rahmungen mit innenliegender Goldleiste und Verglasung. Mit enthalten sind zwei Seitenkopien eines Auktionskataloges, in dem die vier Werke beschrieben werden. Zum Frühlingsmotiv heißt es dort: "A Composition with two young Lovers (Le Printemps): The central group affords the usual connection between love and spring. The medallion contains an young girl's head. The trophy consists of an agricultural fork and a long spindle." Und zum Sommermotiv: "Composition with Young Country Couple (L'Été): In the medallion a girl's head. A rake and hoe make up the trophy." Rückwände jeweils mit Aufkleber der Kölner Kunsthandlung Goyert; eine Rückwand außerdem mit handschriftlicher Ankaufsnotiz. Druckgraphiken nach Wandpanelen oder Paravents von Antoine Watteau, gestochen von Fran?ois Boucher. Es handelt sich um zwei Teile einer ehemals vierteiligen Jahreszeitenserie. Antoine Watteau (1684 - 1721) zählt zu den bedeutendsten Malern des französischen Rokoko. Mit seinen "F?tes galantes", in denen in üppiger landschaftlicher Umgebung Liebespaare, schöne Frauen, Tänzer oder auch Hirten dargestellt werden, schuf er eine eigene Bildgattung. Die größte Anzahl von Watteau-Gemälden befindet sich heute, ehemals von Friedrich dem Großen erworben, im Besitz der Stiftung Preußische Schlösser und Gärten Berlin-Brandenburg. Fran?ois Boucher (1703 - 1770), Maler, Zeichner und Kupferstecher, widmete sich in der Tradition Watteaus, den er bewunderte, künstlerisch ebenfalls der galanten Welt des Rokoko, die er in mythologischen, teilweise erotischen Motiven darstellte. Boucher hatte von 1742 an den Rang eines Hofmalers des französischen Königs inne, außerdem avancierte er zum Günstling der Maitresse des Königs, der einflussreichen Marquise de Pompadour. Es handelt sich bei den beiden angebotenen Darstellungen vermutlich nicht um Original-Kupferstiche der Zeit (18. Jahrhundert), sondern um Reproduktionen aus dem früheren 20. Jahrhundert. Die Druckgraphiken in tadellosem Zustand; Rahmen mit einigen Bereibungsspuren. Weitere Fotos auf der Homepage des Antiquariats (bitte Art.-Nr. auf der Angebotsseite in das Suchfeld eingeben).

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.

"Le premier essai par lequel Bayle se fit connaître, d'une importance très grande dans son oeuvre, celui qu'il a écrit avec le plus de liberté ( ). Contient des textes essentiels" (Delvolve, p. 43). L' 'Addition aux Pensées diverses.’ figure à la suite des ‘Pensées’ sous page de titre particulière et pagination continue à partir de la page 305. La 'Continuation des pensées diverses', fut composée plus de vingt ans après les 'Pensées diverses'. Bayle y approfondit sa thèse. L’étude comparative entre l'athéisme et l'idolâtrie qu’il développe, et la préférence déclarée de l’auteur pour le premier, firent scandale. Bonne édition. Le lieu d'impression est fictif, l'ouvrage a été imprimé à Trévoux, selon le catalogue de la BnF et Weller. (Haag, II, 78. Delvolve, n°6, 29 et 33). Très bel exemplaire.

In fair to good condition with weakness at the folds, some holes and paper loss including words, partial splits, wear, toning and foxing, some with chipped edges and smoothed folds.BackgroundIn The Tales of the Walrus (Xlibris, 2013), Richard Sharkey writes that ""George Washington … knew a man of Welsh background named Morris (also sometimes known as Maurice) Griffith who served as an Indian scout at sometime during the French and Indian War.""Griffith was an experienced frontiersmen in the New River and Holston River area of Augusta County in Virginia. A prominent figure among the settlers of the Welsh Tract in Pennsylvania, on August 12, 1755, Morris Griffith was captured in a raid on Vause’s fort and escaped.On July 10, 1758, in a letter, Christopher Gist informed Major George Washington that Morris Griffith had safely returned after being confronted by a ""Party of Indians & French … This Seems to be the foundation of the News we had Sometime past of a Number of white Men and Indians Makeing for Bedford County. I thought proper to give you this …"" . In 1750, the Ohio Company had hired Gist to survey along the Ohio River from what is now Pittsburgh to Louisville. Travelling with Washington to the Ohio Country in 1754, Gist served as scout, messenger, and Indian agent.""Gist continued, ""There were many such tales of a so-called Welsh tribe; one of interest was a Maurice Griffith who was taken prisoner by the Shawnee Indians in 1764. The Indians eventually befriended him and took him on a hunting expedition to seek the source of the Missouri. High in the mountains they came across 'three white men in Indian dress' with whom they travelled for several days until they arrived at a village where there were others of the same tribe, all having the same European complexion. A council of this white Indian tribe decided to put the strangers to death and Griffith decided it was time to speak. He addressed them in the Welsh language explaining that they had no hostile intentions but merely sought the source of the Missouri and that they would return to their own lands satisfied with their discoveries. The Chief of the Tribe greeted them in Welsh and they were thereafter treated as guests, staying with the nation some eight months.

      1721 - addressed to George Montagu, Earl of Halifax (d. 1739), Auditor of the Receipt of the Exchequer, ordering a large payment under 5 George I c. 19 (1719), in respect of people who had exchanged anticipated lottery proceeds for South Sea stock, 2 sides 4¼" x 6½" remargined to 6¼" x 7½", 28th March lacks bottom portion of first side, also line ends (easily supplied from title of the Act, see transcription), text on second side appears complete apart from addressee's style, tears in line 5 without loss To fund the war with France in Queen Anne's reign, the National Debt was increased by voluntary loans to the Exchequer and lottery subscriptions. Even blank lottery tickets paid a small amount of interest for a term of 32 years. The interest or annuities on these and previous loans was supposed to be secured by introducing more and more taxes, but Exchequer payments were increasingly in arrears. In 1710 the South Sea Company was set up to combine the various arrangements, by inviting creditors to exchange Exchequer debt for South Sea Stock, and till the Bubble burst in 1720, more and more people did so. The £87,342 4s 5d payable by this document was due annually to those who had bought lottery tickets under 8 Anne c. 4, 1709, and who had exchanged under 5 George I c. 19 in 1719. See the marginal note to s. 6 in Pickering's Statutes at Large, 1765, Vol. 14, p. 71. In 1721, although the directors were under investigation, there was a general feeling that Sunderland was responsible for the South Sea fiasco, and he was forced to resign within days of signing this document.

        The orthodox communicant

      engraven and sold by J. Sturt in Golden Lion Court in Aldersgate Street : 1721 : London : 8vo, pp. iv, [6], v-ix, [1], 82. According to ESTC this is the most common binding order. : This was Sturt's second engraved liturgical book following his better known Book of Common Prayer of 1717. The text is annonymous but generally attributed to Laurence Howell; however it is Sturt who signs the dedication to Lady Henrietta Cavendish. Sturt was apprenticed at the age of 17 to Robert White and he engraved a number of portrait frontispieces in the manner of his master. He engraved writing books for John Ayres, Thomas Watson, John Seddon and Eleazar Wiggan in the 1680's and 90's. Perhaps the prayer book too was intended as a copy-book and the subscribers include 3 writing masters, Robert More, Elias Pen and Ralph Snow.Interestingly, other graphic artists and members of the printing trades are prominent in the subscribers list, including the letter founder Robert Andrews; the engravers Edward Hill, Andrew Motte and John Senex; the drawing masters Bernard Lens senior; the limners Bernard and Edward Lens; and the printers Benjamin Mott and Richard Nutt, and James Roberts. Among prominent book collectors we find Sir Hans Sloane and Lord Harley, as well as a separate subscription for Lady Harley. And members of Sturt's family: Nathaniel, Jacob, Anne and Eliza. Like the prayer book, each leaf, with the exception of the final leaf of subscribers, is made up of two leaves pasted back to back. Each page is printed from two separate plates, a border, which repeats, and an inner plate with an illustration at the top and the text below.
