        PLAN DU PORT LOUIS. DANS L'ILE DE FRANCE, SITUÉ PAR LES 20 DEGRÉS 5 MINUTES DE LATITUDE SUD ET PAR 73 DEGRÉS DE LONGITUDE DE TÉNÉRIF. GÉOMETRIQUEMENT LEVÉ SUR LES LIEUX. EN 1721. Par le Chevalier Garnier de Fougerai [manuscript title]

      [N.p., but most likely Mauritius. Early- to mid- 19th century].. Manuscript map, 19 1/4 x 25 inches. On wove paper. Outline coloring. Old fold lines. Some light foxing and offsetting. Very minor loss at folds and from ink burn along the neatline. Very good. Manuscript plan of the harbor of Port Louis, with remarks on the best means for entering the harbor. Though dated 1721 in the cartouche, the plan is a later copy, probably made in the first half of the 19th century. The edges of land and sea have been watercolored for differentiation. The Pointe au Triton and the Ile aux Tonneliers are both labeled with several depths and anchorages noted. The Dutch were the first Europeans to become interested in the island, taking possession in 1598. After exploiting the island's dense forests for a century and introducing the cultivation of sugar cane and cotton, in 1710 the Dutch abandoned the colony. The French soon claimed it as "Ile de France," and the island remained under the control of the French East India Company until 1767. During the long war between France and England at the beginning of the 19th century, Mauritius proved to be an important strategic naval base, and as a result the British took charge of the island in 1810, and the Treaty of Paris confirmed official British possession in 1814. It remained an important sugar producing colony, and in the 20th century agricultural production was expanded to include tea, rice, and other produce.

        Institutionum Juris Civilis.

      1721 - A Standard Italian Textbook During the Eighteenth Century Gasparro, Francesco Maria [1679-1735]. Institutionum Juris Civilis. Ad Usum Seminarii Romani. Rome: Typis de Martiis, 1721-22. Four parts in two volumes bound as one. Quarto (9" x 6-1/4"). Contemporary vellum, gilt title to spine. Light soling to spine, spine ends bumped, negligible spotting to boards. Woodcut head and tail-pieces. Some toning to text, light foxing and browning in places, internally clean. * Second and final edition. Gasparro, a Jesuit canon lawyer and member of the Papal Curia, taught criminal and civil law and the University of Rome. Published with Jesuit sponsorship, and first published in 1707, Gasparro's was a standard text throughout the eighteenth century, editions appearing as late as 1787. Notable for its Jesuitical perspective, it begins with a consideration of the nature of justice, then continues with discussions of the legal status of the person, the power of the state, marriage, adoption, wards, the authority of tutors, servitude, testimony, rights of succession, sales and commercial law. Despite its popularity, all editions of this title are scarce today, especially in North America. Of all editions, OCLC locates 1 copy of the second (at UC-Berkeley Law School) and 2 copies of the first (at Harvard and Stanford Law Schools). Not in the British Museum Catalogue.

        THE ORTHODOX COMMUNICANT. BY WAY OF MEDITATION ON THE ORDER FOR THE ADMINISTRATION OF THE LORD'S SUPPER, OR HOLY COMMUNION

      J. Sturt, London 1721 - 165 x 102 mm (6 1/2 x 4"). 1 p.l., ix, 82, [3] pp., including the subscriber list. Second Edition. Attractive contemporary black morocco tooled in blind in the somber style, covers with frame of scallops and floral tools, central panel with large cruciform fleuron surrounded by curving lines and small tools; raised bands, spine panels with small lozenge, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. ENGRAVED THROUGHOUT on silver, elaborate decorative and historiated initials, each page with a fine pictorial frame, text pages with engraved biblical scenes (measuring approximately 55 x 35 mm.) at the top throughout. The thick leaves of the text apparently made up of two pieces of paper, printed on one side and glued together. Front pastedown with engraved armorial bookplate; three flyleaves with obvious evidence of bookplate removal. Very minor wear to joints and extremities, isolated faint stains or marginal smudges, but a really excellent copy of a book often found otherwise--the text clean and fresh, and the original binding especially bright and with only trivial signs of use. The entire contents of this volume are engraved, not printed, and the New Testament scenes are well-realized for their size, with sophisticated use of light. Perhaps the best English engraver of the period, John Sturt (1658-1730) was extremely productive, executing engravings for numerous books, including the famous writing-master John Ayres' most important works on calligraphy. His skill was such that he could engrave characters legible only under magnification. The anonymous author, according to Halkett & Lang and others, was Laurence Howel, (1664?-1720), who composed this work during confinement in Newgate for writing a pamphlet denouncing George I as a usurper. This is a surprisingly uncommon book in institutions (OCLC locates only two copies of the 1714 first edition and 11 copies of our second), and copies on the market tend to be in poor condition because of frequent hard use. The so-called "somber" binding here is a very good example of an appropriately restrained design meant to match the content of the text. It was a design used on books of devotion or otherwise especially sober volumes of the 17th and 18th centuries, including in particular the "Eikon Bazilike" relating to the death of Charles I. The present specimen is especially well preserved. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Bradley's main scientific contributions were his studies on the movement of sap and on the sexual reproduction of plants" (D.S.B. II, p. 390). The present work is beautifully illustrated and deals for the larger part with zoological matter. Quite a number of reptiles and amphibians are shown such as: a turtle, rattle-snake, a West Indian serpent, a lizard, a camelian, a flying lizard from Ambon, frogs, the common English toad and the Surinam frog. Small owners stamp and signature on title.

        Opera omnia, Medico-Practica et Anatomica. Editio secunda Veneta post Gallicam octavam.

      - Venice, Bonifacio Viezzeri, 1721, (3), 560, Holzschnitte, 3 Kupferstichtafeln, Pergamenteinband der Zeit; frisches Exemplar. "Let the young know that they will never find a more interesting, more instructive book than the patient himself" Baglivi - - A Collected Works of a Most Celebrated Italian Physician! - Second Venice Edition of the main works by Giorgio Baglivi (Dubrovnik 1668-1707 Rome) who echoed Sydenham's call for the practice to be reformed on the bedrock of careful and repeated bedside observations and disease patterns. Together with Boerhave, Baglivi stood in awe of Newton, and much of their physiological work was cast within mechanical framework of medical Newtonianism, although Baglivi insisted that theoretical presuppositions should put be aside when the doctor appears at the patient's bedside. The present work was first published at Lyon and reedited up to the 19th century. - Baglivi, who died prematurely at the height of his career, was a pupil and assistant of Malpighi. He held a chair of medical theory at the Collegio della Sapienza in Rome, and was a physician to the Pope. - - Baglivi was a leader in the Iatrophysical school, he originated the so-called "Solidar pathology" and devoted much time to experimental physiology. Baglivi was a strong advocate of specialism. His collected works contains his classic works including the study which differentiate between smooth and striated muscles and includes his tracts on the tarantula and the earthquake of 1703. - - - Hirsch-H. I, p.228; Garrison & Morton No. 68; DSB I, pp.391-392; This Edition not in Blake, Osler, Eimas, Wellcome, etc. - - Giorgio Baglivi bahnt den Weg zur Iatromorphologie über die Pathologie der Solida - GIORGIO BAGLIVI (1668-1707) aus Ragusa, ein hochbegabter, früh verstorbener Arzt, hat in seinem kurzen Leben zwei gewichtige Werke geschrieben, die sich in Ihrem Geiste sehr unterscheiden. In seinem ersten Werk ,De praxi medica' 1696 ist BAGLIVI betonter Vertreter einer geometrisch-mathematischen Iatromechanik eines BORELLI, BELLINI usw. In seinem späterem 'Specimen quatuor librorum de fibra motrice et morbosa" (1702) entwickelt er, auf Präparation und Experiment fußend, eine Faserlehre zur Erklärung von Physiologie und Pathologie mit Bemerkungen zur Therapie. Diese Theorien und seine wiederholten Hinweise auf die Rolle der Solida für das Krankheitsgeschehen haben ihm die Ruf verschafft, der Begründer der solidaren Krankheutstheorie (oder der Solidarpathologie ) gegenüber der alten Humoralpathologie zu sein. Das ist zwar richtig, aber die Hochschätzung der Solida ist noch keine Morphologie, und keinesfalls kommt Baglivi eine entscheidende Rolle für den Sieg des morphologischen Gedankens zu, obgleich auch er 1696 die Sektion empfiehlt. In der 'Praxis Medica' von 1696 betont er aber noch sehr den Wert von Mathematik, Mechanik, Hydraulik und verlangt die Berücksichtigung von Zahl, Gewicht und Maß. Mit ihren Argumenten stützen sich die Anatomen und Mechaniker in der Medizin hinsichtlich der Behandlung der Krankheiten, aber ihm scheinen Theorie und Praxis verschiedene Quellen zu brauchen, denn die Praxis zieht ganz aus den Erfahrungen am Krankenbett ihre Kenntnisse. "Wer aber seine Praxis am Krankenbett nach den Regeln der wechselnden Theorien richten will, den erwartet bei der Krankenbehandlung wenig Glück. Aber immerhin meint BAGLIVI: Seitdem "die Ärzte mit Hilfe geometrisch-mechanischer Prinzipien und darüber hinaus durch physikalisch-mechanische und chemische Experimente die Struktur des lebenden Körpers und seine Wirkungsweisen zu untersuchen begannen, entdeckten sie nicht nur unzählige, früheren Jahrhunderten unbekannte Dinge, sondern sie erkannten auch, daß tatsächlich der menschliche Körper hinsichtlich seiner natürlichen Verrichtungen nichts anderes sei als ein Komplex chemisch-mechanischer Bewegungen, die von rein mathematischen Prinzipien abhängen". . . .

        PASQUIN'S WINDKAART OP DE WINDNEGOTIE VAN'T IAAR 1720

      [Amsterdam: Nullenstein Lautje van Schotten, ca. 1721].. Fifty-two cards, plus title card and publisher's card, for a total of fifty-four cards. 2 x 3 1/2 inches each. 16mo. Each card backed on 19th- century heavy card. Bright and clean. Later ownership notation on verso of each card. Very good. In a morocco solander case. Second edition, after the first of the previous year. The first edition was issued with a title card reading: APRIL KAART OF KAART SPEL VAN MOMUS NAAR DE NIEUWSTE MODE. Cards in both editions consist of an allegorical image set above humorous couplets. While the images in each set are primarily the same, the couplets are entirely different. According to Hargrave, a booklet was also issued with these cards, but it is absent here. This ornamental set of playing cards in the French suit system (hearts, clubs, diamonds, spades) lampoons John Law's Mississippi Bubble scheme, the South Sea Company, and other parties engaged in the disastrous speculation. The publisher's card bears the image of a large cock, which also appeared on John Law's arms. "John Law's Mississippi Bubble scheme started about 1717, was at its height in 1719, and collapsed in 1720, so that Law fled from Paris. There are several allusions to the South Sea Company. On the three of spades, the three companies, the South Sea, the Mississippi, and the West Indian, sit side by side in a swing. On the four of spades, Madame la Petite [represented here as a black cat] is supposed to mean the wife of Thomas Knight, the cashier of the South Sea Company, who bought his shares in her name" - Hargrave. This series of cards can also be found as a plate in the HET GROOTE TAFEREEL DER DWAASHEID... (Amsterdam, 1720), the great Mississippi Bubble satirical plate book. Here the engraved area of the cards is slightly taller, which confirms the present set is from an entirely different engraving than that which appears in the book. This set is the second in a series of satirical Dutch playing cards. A set issued in 1719 made fun of a series of Papal scandals and was suppressed by the Catholic Church. A later set, done in 1740, satirized the various peoples of the world. An attractive series of playing cards, rooted in a great early American land scheme. Complete early 18th-century sets of playing cards are extremely rare. CARY COLLECTION, HOL 26. D. HOFFMAN 1973, pp.45, 47. MUSEUM WILLET HOLTHUSYEN 1976, p.73, no. 62. LADY SCHREIBER 1892, I:12.

        Autograph Letter Delineating the Borders of Orange and Ulster Counties in New York (1721)

      A contemporary, probably retained copy of a three-page holographic letter dated October 1721 written by Isaac Bobin, private secretary to the Honorable George Clarke, who was the Secretary for the Province of New York from 1718 to 1730. The two 8.25" x 12.75" leaves were formerly horizontally folded in quarters and are fragile at the folds, with some general toning, minor splitting at a few of the folds, and a bit of chipping to the extremities, not affecting the content of the letter.The letter roughly delineates the boundary line between Orange and Ulster counties in the province of New York by an Act of the Assembly of the Province. In the top right corner of the document is written "duplicate" and on the bottom of the page is written "Justice of Ulster County," presumably making this period copy of the letter the one delivered to the officials in Ulster. The first leaf contains a watermark, which appears to be a Royal crest of some sort, and the second leaf contains a watermark with the initials HBM. Both leaves also bear an embossed seal impression. In the letter, Bobin reports that the division line between the two counties will run from the mouth of Murderers Creek westward and into the woods as far as the Delaware River. Owing to the continuing ambiguity of the division and the increasing number of settlers to the region, Bobin reports that Secretary Clarke asks that five or more leaders from Ulster meet on November 20 at the Court House of the County of Ulster to decide who will meet with their counterpart from Orange County and other interested parties at the city of New York the last Tuesday in March to finalize the boundaries of the two counties. This letter is not included in Letters of Isaac Bobin, Esq. (published by J. Munsell, Albany, New York, 1872). .

Scomparti decorati con motivi vegetali. Tassello con autore e titolo applicato al primo tomo, perso al secondo. Piatti in carta marmorizzata con diversi strappi. Esemplare su carta ossidata, in barbe, a margini bianchi molto ampi che presenta il secondo tomo con lavori di tarlo al centro delle carte per gran parte del testo e che interessano il bordo superiore solo per una trentina di pagine. Piccolissimo lavoro di tarlo al margine superiore bianco delle pagine da 405 a 440 del I tomo. Antiporta e frontespizio del I volume imbraghettati con nastro adesivo da lucido. Mal legate le carte iniziali con la prefazioni che intervalla la vita del Berni. Il secondo tomo, con legatura staccata, presenta i camminamenti di tarlo integrati con carta che tuttavia tende a staccarsi; pressoché slegato, bisognoso di braghettature all’unione dei fogli. Francesco Berni nacque a Lamporecchio presso Pistoia nel 1497, figlio di un notaio, ebbe la prima educazione in Firenze e poi andò a Roma presso il Cardinal Bibbiena di cui era parente. Costretto a partire da Roma dopo la morte del cardinale nel 1520 e per aver scritto satire contro il futuro Papa Adriano VI tornò a Firenze, dove fu al servizio del cardinale Ippolito de’ Medici e morì, forse coinvolto in una congiura nel 1535.Fu il maggiore esponente della poesia burlesca dei Seicento, un genere scherzoso satirico e salace che ebbe una sua fioritura e che da lui prese anche il nome di poesia bernesca continuando anche nei secoli successivi. L’edizione, che venne curata da Paolo Rolli con annotazioni di Anton Maria Salvini, il cui nome compare anagrammato nella forma di Antinoo Nivalsi nella prefazione, inizia con la vita che egli stesso scrisse nel suo Orlando Innamorato, rifatto su quello del Boiardo ed in cui lascia anche una sua descrzione fisica. Di persona era grande magro e schietto / Lunghe e sottil le Gambe forte aveva / E’l Naso grande, e il Viso largo, e stretto / Lo spazio che le Ciglia divideva; Concavo l’Occhio aveva azurro e netto, / La Barba folta quasi’l nascondeva. Segue poi una parte sulle edizioni delle opere del Berni a partire dalla prima del 1538, quella curata dal Lasca del 1548, e che qui è ristampata. Nella prefazione si annuncia anche l’intenzione di stampare un secondo volume che comprende tutte le opere del Berni trovate in altri autori. Oltre a quelli indicati nei titoli, sono riportati sonetti del Coppetta, di Strascino da Siena, Andrea Lori, Luca Martini, Francesco Baldelli, dl Bronzino, Valerio Buongioco, Luca Valoriani, del’Anguillara, Lodovico Domenichi. Il Simposio di Lorenzo de’Medici conclude il volume. Edizione che il Gamba (160) dice di qualche pregio e che, come quella in tre volumi sempre con Londra come finto luogo di stampa, del 1723, ricopia l’edizione fiorentina del Giunta del 1548, come si legge anche in fine del primo volume.

      London: Printed by W. Wilkins., . 1721 - 80pp. Woodcut decorations and letters. 12mo. Modern red morocco, spine gilt. Title- leaf and following two leaves dampstained, light scattered foxing, but still a very good copy. This copy bears the contemporary ownership signature of Stephen Sewall on the titlepage. Sewall was clerk of the Salem witchcraft trial court and his brother, Chief Justice Samuel Sewall, sat at the Salem witchcraft trials. First edition of this "notable contribution to colonial political thought, voicing the theory that, by reason of their contractual nature, these charters could not now, after the colonists had fulfilled their obligation by redeeming the wilderness, be abrogated and government restored to the Crown" (Howes).
