        A New Map of Asia From the latest Observations. Most Humbly Inscrib'd to the Right Hon.ble George Earl of Warrington.

      London: John Senex, 1721. Hand-coloured engraved map measuring 540 x 625 mm. (sheet size), with ornamental title caption to the top left corner; slight aging, very good condition, mounted. Finely engraved map of greater Asia (including Arabia, India and a small portion of northernmost Australia) by John Senex (1678-1740), geographer to Queen Anne and fellow of the Royal Society. As with many maps of the early eighteenth-century the coastline of northern Australia is included.The map was printed for the New General Atlas of 1721, drawing upon information from a wide variety of sources including leading continental cartographers of the era: 'The atlas was claimed to be based on the best authors, particularly Cluverius, Brietius, Cellarius, Blaeu, Baudrand, Hoffman, the two Sansons, Luyts, and other geographers' (Shirley p.942). Senex was widely respected as a pre-eminent scientific publisher of his generation. He also sold globes and instruments and was sometimes employed as a surveyor. Shirley notes that maps in the New General Atlas of 1721 marked as revised by Senex are most probably derived from plates previously owned or published by the prolific London publisher and map-seller Christopher Browne (fl. 1688-1712).This marvellous map features a most attractive ornamental title to one corner featuring a reclining Ottoman gentleman with a long pipe, a Mongol swordsman and a monkey brandishing a goblet. Curiously, the route of Evert Ysbrandszoon Ides, an envoy of Tsar Peter the Great who travelled to China in 1692 is here clearly engraved.

        La Monarchie des Solipses, traduite de l'Original Latin de Melchior Inchofer Jesuite. Avec des Remarques.

      Ansterdam: n.p. 1721. Duodecimo, woodcut device on title; in contemporary mottled calf gilt. First French edition of this satirical fantasy on the Jesuits, exaggerating their society as a separate world with a 'nouvelle forme de Gouvernement inconnue dans nôtre Hémisphere'.Scotti (1602-1669), an Italian from an influential patrician family and a Jesuit himself, had a turbulent career marred by a series of public quarrels with both the Order and the various universities at which he was professor. His Monarchie des Solipses (first published in Venice in 1645) takes the form of an 'ingenious satire against the Jesuits achieved by describing their society as the monarchy of Solipsia' (Gibson). Scotti's scathing account of a narcissistic society separated from the world struck a chord: indeed, his apparent invention of the word 'solipsist' to describe the Jesuits was popularly used as a derogatory term for some time after publication.The thoroughness of the work and the consistency of the allegory were widely praised, although its obscurity was a problem: 'Peu de lecteurs sont en état d'entendre le style obscur, plein d'allusions et de réticences, de cet ouvrage, qui, à part endroits curieux, n'est qu'une satire dictée par le dépit' (NBG). No doubt this accounts for the fact that this French translation is furnished with extensive notes clarifying and explaining the allusions. A very good copy.

        Avis de précaution contre la maladie contagieuse de Marseille, qui contient une idée complette de la peste, & de ses accidens. Avec des moyens préservatifs, & curatifs ; de formules choisies, & un catalogue général de remèdes, tant simples, que composez.

      Lyon, Frères Bruyset, 1721 - Lyon, Frères Bruyset, 1721 ; 1 vol. in-12 (16.5 x 9.5 cm), (24), 203, (5) pp., plein veau de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, armes dorées poussées au centre des plats, filet doré dencadrement sur les plats, petites traces de frottement, roulette dorée sur les coupes, tranches jaspées, ex-libris gravé (Dr. François Jung), très bon état. Édition originale très rare, a fotiori dans cette condition. Cet ouvrage, dédicacé "à Son altesse Royale Léopold Ier, Duc de Lorraine et de Bar" est écrit de façon claire, fait très inhabituel pour l'époque. Pestalozzi est aussi plus rationnel que ses prédécesseurs et la plupart de ses contemporains. Il commence par indiquer que "c'est une erreur populaire, & un abus grossier de croire qu'il y ait des secrets universels contre cette maladie". Il prône l'observation et le raisonnement. Pestalozzi a le mérite d'indiquer que les "variations de la maladie" correspondent à des formes cliniques relevant "d'une même cause, c'est-à-dire d'un poison étranger". Comme la plupart des médecins de cette époque, il pense que la peste est due à des "corpuscules" transportés par l'air. Selon lui, ces corpuscules volatils sortent du corps des pestiférés. Pestalozzi, en opposition avec Chicoyneau, se déclare "contagioniste". Il rapporte l'histoire de la peste de Marseille et étudie les moyens de communication. Il a le mérite d'analyser la théorie des insectes énoncée par Kircher et qui fit l'objet de violentes critiques au XVIIIe siècle. Pestalozzi émet cependant deux objections à cette théorie, la fécondité et la durée de vie des insectes lui paraissant incompatibles avec le mode de propagation de la peste. La symptomatologie est bien exposée. Pestalozzi préconise les antidotes traditionnels (thériaque, etc.), l'antimoine, l'eau de vie, etc. Il indique de nombreuses formules de remèdes préservatifs et curatifs. Jérôme Jean Pestalozzi (1674-1742), d'origine vénitienne, fut reçu docteur en médecine à Valence et devint agrégé au Collège de médecine de Lyon, médecin de l'Hôtel-Dieu. Références : Coste J : Représentations et comportements en temps d'épidémie dans la littérature imprimée de peste (1490-1725), pp. 152, 179, 182-184, 226, 232, 254, 261,291, 320, 325, 336, 340, 344, 812 ; Takeda JT : Between Crown and Commerce: Marseille and the Early Modern Mediterranean, pp. 106, 108-109, 112-114 :" Early eighteenth-century epidemiologists introduced new interpretations that tended to shrink plagues dimensions. While preserving Hippocratic theories of miasmas, physicians assumed a rationalist tone that reduced the disease to its 'simplest forms'. They configured plague, disharmony, and irrationality against experimental knowledge and rationality. The medical views of two renowned physicians who practiced and wrote during the plague of 1720, Jérôme-Jean Pestalozzi and François Chicoyneau, point this transition. Pestalozzi insisted that plague was a simple disease. It destroyed many things, but it did so in the same way. Pestalozzi advocated a simplified method of confronting the plague: observation of the disease's effects. Pestalozzi's scientific method was fraught with tensions. Though he had inherited the Hippocratic vocabulary, his investigative process leading from particular effects to general ideas made him a budding empiricist. While he subscribed to ideas about plague that linked physical derangement with political and social disorder, he attempted to strip it of metaphors and reduce it to biological dimensions to make it manageable and curable. ; Panzac D : Quarantaines et Lazarets, pp. 13-16, 104. © S.A.S.

        Magna Carta etc.] English Liberties, Or The Free-Born Subject’s Inheritance: Containing Magna Charta . . . The Habeas Corpus Act, And Several Other Statutes

      Boston: Printed by J. Franklin, for N. Buttolph, B. Eliot, and D. Henchman, 1721 - FIRST AMERICAN EDITION. This volume, one of the very first law books printed in colonial America, contains the first American printing of Magna Carta and other fundamental documents of individual liberty in Anglo-American law. Magna Carta has become “a sacred text, the nearest approach to an irrepealable ‘fundamental statute’ that England has ever had” (Pollock & Maitland). Benjamin Franklin helped to print this book as a 15-year old apprentice at his brother James’s Boston printing shop. This was probably Franklin’s first exposure to the principles of individual liberty to which he devoted much of his life. The book “contained the most important documents and statements in English history and law concerning liberty, property, and the rights of the individual Franklin knew its contents thoroughly” (Lemay). English Liberties “was less a practical handbook than a statement and record of the great legal and political principles which formed the proud inheritance of the British peoples at home and abroad. These matters were ever present in the minds of the colonists” (Wroth). Thomas Jefferson owned two editions of English Liberties, and the book was in many other libraries of the Founders. Original blind-tooled sheep over wooden boards, expertly rebacked. Some soiling and wear. Cloth case. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        MARTINO ROTA: [‘Landscape with Flock of Sheep and a Dog’].

      - 1726 1721 - Kupferstich, Blatt: ca 20,5 x 34 cm. This beautifully engraved bucolic scene depicts a shepherd herding his flock, while his dog looks on. In the background runs a road that weaves past a ruined arch, taken by a lone traveler. The lively, yet elegant nature of the engraving is arresting and does justice to the virtue of its antecedent. The print is not signed, but was attributed to Martino Rota by Passavant. Martino Rota was a prominent 16th Century artist, having worked in many of the great cultural centres of Europe, such as Rome, Venice, Vienna and Prague. He was born Martin Rota Koluni? in Sibenik, Dalmatia, and moved to Rome around 1540, where he worked for the Dutch engraver and draughtsman Cornelius Cort. In 1558, Rota relocated to Venice, where he attained great renown by engraving the works of Tiziano Vecelli (Titian). He also engraved many fine maps and topographical views. In 1568 he moved to the imperial court of Vienna, where he commenced a new career as a portrait painter of the Habsburg family. During his time in the Austrian capital, he collaborated with Francesco Valegio on the production of a series of miniature views of towns and cities, published in Raccolta di le Piu Illustri et Famose Citta di Tutto il Mondo. In 1583, he was summoned to Prague to be a court painter to the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II, but died there later the same year.

        Mohammedia filii Abdallae pseudo-prophetae Fides Islamitica, i.e. Al-Coranus. Ex idiomate Arabico, quo primum a Mohammede conscriptus est, latine versus per Ludovicum Marraccium [...]. Cura et opera M. Christiani Reineccii. Leipzig, Lanckisch, 1721.

      1721. 8vo. (12), 114, (2), 558, (34) pp. Title page printed in red and black. Contemporary full vellum with ms. title to spine. First printing thus. - The edition of Christian Reineccius (1668-1752) contains the Latin text of Luigi Marracci (1612-1700), to which are added a history of the Quran and an account of the Muslim faith. Marracci's text, published in 1698, constituted the first accurate Latin translation, the first scholarly printed Quran (including a much more accurate Arabic text than any previously printed). "It was a considerable progress that the Quran, much maligned by so scholars many in the West possessing no familiarity at all with its content, now was made generally available" (cf. Fück). - Some browning throughout, as common; old ownership "Steph. Manno" stamped to title page. Altogether very well-preserved in an immaculate contemporary full vellum binding. Schnurrer p. 413f. Fück 95, n. 251. BM Arabic I, 896. Enay 164. Zenker I, 1396. Woolworth p. 286.
