      1721. Cambridge, J.F. Gleditsch & Sons, 1721. 8 prelimary leaves,254pp. Contemporary mottled sheep (minor rubbing & wear). Spine richly gilt. [bound with]: REICHARD, BARTHOLOMAES CHRISTIAN.

I - (Maichel): An important early history of the French Royal Library and other famous Parisian libraries including the Bibliotheca Colbertina, St.-Germain, Mazarine, libraries of many religious orders etc. Horne (p. 561) says: "A work of great rarity. It is divided into two parts, the first of which contains an account of the rise and progress of the King's Library, and of nine other public libraries, at Paris. In the second part, the author discusses the use of public libraries, and the knowledge of literary history; and treats on a MS. de Mortibus Persecutorum, in the Colbertine Library, which is usually assigned to Lucius Caecilius, but which Michaelius ascribes to Lactantius. The sources of literary history are next discussed, together with the right object of studies. Some notices are also introduced relative to the librarians and other literati then at Paris." Also Watt described this as being "a work of great rarity" and Michaud says: "Cette ouvrage est rempli de détails intéressants et il est assez recherché." Psaume p. 225 "Ouvrage rare en France". Daniel Maichel (1693-1752) was a professor of theology and philosophy at Tübbingen. II - (Reichard): A very uncommon book. The earliest history of the Austrian National Library, founded in the mid-16th century. Reichard (1679-1721), professor of philosophy at Wittenberg and later librarian at Jena, tells in detail of the major donors and accessions, the librarians etc. Very good copies.

        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.

'sGravesande (1688 - 1742) a Dutch mathematician and philosopher, is described by the DSB as "the earliest influential exponent of Newtonian philosophy in continental Europe". He spent a year in London in 1715 having been sent there as part of a Dutch mission to congratulate George I on his accession and there he made contact with the English Newtonians Desaguliers and John Keill and met Newton himself. In 1717 he was appointed professor of mathematics and philosophy at Leiden and began to prepare his Introductio ad philosophiam Newtoniam which was first published in 1720 - 21. This important and popular work reached 24 editions by 1760. See Gjertsen, The Newton Handbook, page 235: "It was a work which emphasised the experimental rather than the mathematical side of Newton's thought and as such must have introduced many throughout Europe to the basic principles of the new science."

        De L'Esprit des Loix. Ou du rapport que les Loix doivent avoir avec la Constitution de chaque Gouvernement, les Moeurs, le Climat, la Religion, le Commerce, &c.Geneva: Barrillot, 1748.

      First edition, and a pristine copy in untouched condition with the rare errata leaves, of this classic in political economy which influenced the formation of the United States Constitution and was the ideological basis of the French Revolution. The work is remarkable as a whole for its comprehensiveness and for the complete freshness of its outlook as a study of the relationship between law and political institutions, customs, religion, climate and commerce.<br/><br/> &#10087;PMM 197. <br/><br/> "In many ways one of the most remarkable works of the eighteenth century, 'The Spirit of Law', owing in the main to the high plane of generalization on which it is written, defies easy classification and for that reason has never enjoyed a great popularity. So, too, its author puzzled his contemporaries, and very diverse opinions were passed on him and his work even by the philosophes, whose predecessor Montesquieu was.<br/> "Born in the Gironde, he inherited from his uncle the title of Montesquieu and the presidency of the <i>Parlement</i> of Bordeaux, an office which he held for ten years. During this period he wrote and published his equally famous <i>Lettres Persanes</i>. Conveniently disguised as the correspon¬dence of two Persian noblemen travelling in Europe, Montesquieu satirized, in an unforgivably witty style, the absurdities and abuses of the contemporary social, politi¬cal, ecclesiastical and literary scene. France was publicly shocked and privately delighted. Four editions appeared in 1721, and then none for nine years; it is not unreason¬able to suppose that it was officially suppressed. This suc¬cess brought Montesquieu into Parisian society, and after publishing some more books of a slighter nature he was, not without some intrigue and counter-intrigue, elected a member of the Academy. He gave up his Bordeaux presidency and embarked on an extensive tour through Austria, Hungary, Italy and Germany, ending in England, where he stayed for eighteen months and developed an admiration for the English constitution and character which never left him. He then returned to his estate in La Brede, and pursued the life of a country gentleman (rather in the English manner) while he worked on his next book.<br/> "In 1734 <i>Considerations sur les Causes de la Grandeur des Romanis et de leur Decadence</i> appeared in Amsterdam. Despite Montesquieu's previous reputation as a wit, this was immediately recognized as a major work, and it has remained the most popular and widely read of his books. Its facts may have been superseded but neither its style, a masterly succinctness, nor its matter-it is the first com¬prehensive philosophy of society-have lost their value.<br/> "Finally in 1743 he began <i>De l'Esprit des Loix</i>. It took four years to write, and when it was finished almost all his friends advised him not to publish it. Montesquieu paid no attention and it was printed in Geneva in the autumn of 1748. It consists of six main sections, the first dealing with law in general and different forms of government, and the second with the means of government, military matters, taxation and so on. The third deals with national character and the effect on it of climate; a subject of peculiar originality and the one most discussed at the time. The fourth and fifth deal with economic matters and religion; the last is an appendix on law-Roman, feudal and modern French.<br/> "The most distinctive aspect of this immense syllabus is its moderation: a quality not designed to achieve official approval in 1748. It is an always original survey which is neither doctrinaire, visionary, eccentric, nor over-syste¬matic. If it is at fault, it is that in its comparison of the various kinds of constitution it is too prone to reflexion upon the defects of the French monarchy. But the scheme that emerges of a liberal benevolent monarchy limited by safeguards on individual liberty was to prove immensely influential.<br/> "In 1750 Montesquieu published a dignified <i>Defense</i> of his work, but not long after he died while on a visit to Paris. Curiously enough the <i>philosophes</i>, whose views were much in sympathy with his, did not speak much of him. This was partly due to the antagonism of Voltaire, and partly to a feeling that on this subject there was noth¬ing much to be added. Yet his theories underlay the thinking which led up to the American and French revo-lutions, and the United States Constitution in particular is a lasting tribute to the principles he advocated." (Printing and the Mind of Man).. Two volumes, 4to (252 x 197 mm), pp [8] xxiv 522 [2:errata]; [4] xvi 564 [2:errata] (mispaginations: vol. II: 212 for 221, 87 for 487), bound in two fine, and stricklty contemporary French full calf, entirely untouched, upper capital of volume 1 with a little chipping, joints and extremeties a little rubbed.

        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). .
