         Des berüchtigten Ertz-Diebes Cartouche Ankunfft im Reiche der Todten / Oder Curieuse Entrevue Zwischen gedachten Cartouche Und Den berühmten Königl. Frantzösischen Raht und Policey-Director Mr. d' Argenson, Worinnen viele besondere und bishero unbekannte Nachrichten von dieses grossen Haupt-Diebes Leben Auch dessen und seiner Mit-Gesellen listigen pratiquen, nebst verschiedenen andern historischen, politischen und moralischen materien auf eine ungemein angenehme Art vorgetragen werden. Aus den Frantzösischen übersetzet. [1. Aufl.]

      Frankfurt u. Leipzig, o.V., [ca. 1722]. - 56 S. [recte: 54; S.7/8 in der Paginierung übersprungen], mit gest. Frontispiz, 8°, Karton aus Herrnhuter-Papier Huelke-Etzler 53. - Louis Dominique Garthausen, besser bekannt unter "Cartouche" (1693-1721). Schon in der Schule fiel er durch Diebstähle auf u. so jagte ihn sein Vater bereits im Alter von zwölf Jahren davon. Er schloss sich zunächst einer Räuberbande in der Normandie an. Wieder in Paris war er eine Zeitlang für den Polizeileutnant d Argenson als Spitzel tätig. Nach seiner Rückkehr aus der Armee gründete er eine eigene Räuberbande, die in u. um Paris ihr Unwesen trieb. Cartouche war durchaus populär, nicht zuletzt, weil seine Taten oft von einem gewissen Witz zeugten. Der ehemalige Scharfrichter Henri Sanson widmet ihm in seinen Memoiren der Henker von Paris ein ganzes Kapitel. Nach seiner Ergreifung wurden Cartouche u. vier seiner Kumpane dazu verurteilt, gerädert zu werden, nachdem er der gewöhnlichen u. außergewöhnlichen peinlichen Befragung unterzogen wurde. Dazu Sanson: "Am Morgen des 27. erlitt Cartouche die Tortur. Ein Bruchschaden, den die Ärzte bei ihm feststellten, ersparte ihm die Tortur des Wippens; die der spanischen Stiefel dagegen durchlitt er bis zum achten (Keil) mit außerordentlicher Festigkeit und Ruhe; er weigerte sich, irgendein Geständnis zu machen." Auf dem Weg zur Hinrichtung bemerkt er, dass es keine anderen Delinquenten gab. Nun belastete er Pierre-François-Gruthus Duchatelet, von dem er sich verraten fühlte. Am folgenden Tag übergab man ihn erneut dem Scharfrichter. Ein Retentum, das man ihm gewährt hatte, war dem Henker versehentlich nicht rechtzeitig ausgehändigt worden, so dass der Delinquent das eigentliche Rädern bis zum bitteren Ende erdulden musste. Anschließend wurde er, wie damals üblich, aufs Rad geflochten u. überlebte auch diese Tortur noch um zwanzig Minuten. - Etwas gebräunt u. tlw. leicht braunfleckig; ein gutes Expl. - Selten.

With engr. frontispiece by Johann Melchior Füssli, and 1 engr. folding map of Switzerland by Michael Kauffer after Christoph Weigel. 8 unn. leaves, 717 pp. (recte 709, pp. 268-277 omitted in the numbering, pp. 671-672 numbered twice), 23 unn. pp. index. 4to. Contemp. leather. Zurich, David Gessner, 1722. First edition of Johann Jakob Leu's new version of Josias Simler's main work "De republica helvetiorum" (1576). Commissioned by the publisher David Gessner, Hans Jacob Leu (1689-1768) started in 1720 with his revisions, against considerable odds since information about the regiments of the cantons were considered top secret. His aim was to continue the original text up to his own times, and to augment it with an historical part about the period from the origins of the Helvetians up to the time of Emperor Rudolf I. On the other hand he annotated the constitutional texts to conform with contemporary practice. This was to be Leu's most successful work, the only one which saw a second edition on 1735. - Fine, complete copy. - Haller IV, 409; Wyss 211; Feller/Bonjour 162 and 437; cf. M. Vogt, J. J.

Sewel drew on his own correspondence and the works of Fox (Journal), Lord Clarendon (Rebellion) and Ludlow (Memoirs). Index at rear followed by four page listing of books offered by J. Sowle.

         La médecine statique ou l'art de se conserver la santé par la transpiration; traduite en françois par feu M. Le Breton médecin de la Faculté de Paris.

      P., Cl. Jombert, 1722, in 16, de 7ff.-219pp.-2ff., ill. d'un curieux front. gravé, pl. veau époque, dos orné, bon exemplaire. Première traduction française de la célèbre Médecine statique de l'ingénieux médecin italien Santorio mort en 1636. Peu d'ouvrages ont atteint un degré de célébrité comparable à celui-ci. Santorio fit le premier la distinction entre la transpiration insensible et la sueur, et introduisit les méthodes de mesure en physiologie : mesure de la température, du poids et du pouls. Pour ses expérimentations il avait fait fabriquer un siège mécanique suspendu et mu par des rouages si parfaits qu'il tenait lieu de balance très précise. Se pesant plusieurs fois par jour ainsi que ses aliments, il réussit à déterminer le poids et la quantité de transpiration et établit le rapport de celle-ci avec les aliments. La traduction est due au médecin alchimiste Jean Le Breton, l'auteur des Clefs de la philosophie spagyrique. ¶ Dezeimeris VII. 63 - Blake p.401 - Garrison-Morton n°573 "Sanctorius was the founder of the physiology of metabolism. He introduced into physiology exact methods of measurement, pulse counting, temperature determination, and weighing." - Dorbon n°4385.

         The Fundamental Maxims of Civil Government.

      Edinburgh: Printed for Mr. William Monro,, 1722. According to the Principles of the late Arch-Bishop of Cambray. Done from the French. Small octavo (140 x 91 mm), disbound from a pamphlet volume. Recent grey paper boards, title label to front board printed in black. A fine copy. First edition of the Roman Catholic archbishop, theologian, and poet's collection of aphorisms, published posthumously. It is likely to be a translation of "Maximes morales et politiques" from Les Aventures de Télémaque, Fénelon's hugely popular didactic novel first published anonymously in 1699 and reissued under his name in 1717. Télémaque, his scathing critique of the autocratic government of Louis XIV, recommends the introduction of a parliamentary system and the abolition of the mercantile system. It has been described as "the first prose poem in French" (Harvey and Heseltine, p. 270).

         HISTOIRE DE L'AMERIQUE SEPTENTRIONALE.

      Paris: Jean-Luc Nion and François Didot, 1722 [vols. 1-3]; 1721 [vol. 4]. - Four volumes. Titles in red and black. [12],10,15- 370,[4]; [2],356,[8]; [12],310,[6]; [2],271,[5]pp., with errors in pagination as issued. Frontispiece additional engraved title by I.B. Scotin, twenty-eight engraved plates and maps (twelve folding), including a double- sided plate of music. 12mo. Contemporary mottled calf, spines gilt, all edges stained red. Corners, spine extremities and edges slightly worn. Unobtrusive ownership inscription on titlepages, bookplate on front pastedowns. Very good. Rare first edition of an important illustrated contemporary history of the Indian nations in Canada and their relations with the French, including among the earliest printed views in Canada. Claude-Charles Le Roy de la Potherie, also called Bacqueville de la Potherie, arrived in New France in 1698 as comptroller of the Marine and of the fortifications in Canada. His work, published some twenty years before Charlevoix's great history, provides an eyewitness account and historical record of the region. "Bacqueville's account is in the form of letters, one of them describing the Cartier expedition and summarizing the next century and a half, but the history is mostly of the administrations of Frontenac, De la Barre, and Denonville, and as such is a contemporary account of that great period. The work contains much on the relations of New France with the English colonies and with the Indians" - Streeter. The first volume includes a detailed account of the capture of Fort Nelson. "His letters on the governments of Quebec, Trois-Rivieres, and Montreal offer a fairly complete picture of Canada. The descriptions of places and of the settlers' way of life, the notes on individuals, the statistics on population and sources of revenue show that nothing escaped La Potherie's attention and that he wanted his readers to be well informed" - CNB. The second volume is devoted to descriptions of the principal Indian nations and their relations with the French. The author relied on information from Louis Jolliet, the Jesuit missionaries, and Nicolas Perrot, and includes information provided to him verbally and not found in other accounts. The remaining two volumes are devoted the Iroquois wars and of the peace discussions which led to the general treaty of 1701, including extracts from the speeches to the chiefs of the various nations. Among the illustrations are a prospect of Quebec, a view of the taking of Fort Nelson, images of fur traders and Indians, and three folding engraved maps of Hudson Bay, Montreal, and La Nouvelle France. Although described by Sabin as "the earliest views taken in Canada" they are preceded by those of Champlain and Lahontan. Nevertheless, the engravings provide the best, and arguably most accurate, iconography of the customs and costume of early Native American culture in Canada. As noted by TPL and OCLC, although the first volume contains a gap in pagination between pages 10 and 15, the text is continuous and was issued with at least one cancelled leaf between; the gap in pagination, without the cancelled printer's error, is found in most extant examples.

(que Dios guarde) el Coronel de Infanteria D. Joseph Rivera Bernardez, Conde de Santiago de la Laguna", México, por Joseph Bernardo de Hogal, impresor, s. a., pero c. 1727. 4º., 128 págs. Encuadernación moderna en media piel y papel de aguas; algunas restauraciones del papel pero buen ejemplar. Carente del grabado calcográfico de la estatua. Rarísimo impreso de uno de los pocos testimonios de los certámenes literarios novohispanos. En España tan sólo se conserva un ejemplar en la Biblioteca de la Real Academia de la Historia (CCPB000355382-5). Asimismo se han localizado sendos ejemplares en Indiana University y en la Biblioteca del Tecnológico de Monterrey. La obra y el obelisco zacaterano fue patrocinado por José Rivera Bernández, para perpetuar un obelisco que había sido pintado en el palacio de su tío en 1724, en ocasión de la celebración local de la coronación del joven monarca Luis I, y que será colocado finalmente en 1734, para mayor ornato de la plaza pública frente a su palacio. José Rivera Bernández, conde de Santiago de la Laguna, coronel de infantería, clérigo presbítero y alcalde ordinario de primer voto de Zaratecas y teniente general de corregidor interino, será conocido especialmente por la Descripción breve de la muy noble y leal ciudad de Zaratecas, México, José Bernardo de Hogal, 1732. Asimismo fabricará a sus expensas la capilla de nuestra Señora del Patrocinio en el Cerro de Bufa y las dependencias contiguas a la ermita. Este pequeño opúsculo juega un papel importante en el marco del reformismo borbónico. El certamen literario se llevó a cabo en Zacatecas en 1722 y se publicó en 1727 con la écfrasis de un obelisco de cantera dedicado a Luis I que se erigió en 1724 junto a la catedral de Zacatecas. La Estatua de la Paz al parecer se erigió en Madrid en lo que es hoy la puerta del Sol, era un obelisco que fue destruido en la batalla del 3 de mayo. La Dra. María del Carmen Fernández Galán Montemayor, de la Universidad Autónoma de Zaratecas, realizó una edición moderna del texto con un notable estudio en el que se pone en valor la importancia de este rarísimo impreso.

         The history of the Royal Society of London, for the improvement of natural knowledge. Third edition.

      London:: Printed for Samuel Chapman, 1722., 1722. 4to. [xvi], 438, [2] pp. Title printed in red & black. Frontispiece engraved coat-of-arms of the Royal Society, 2 engraved folding plates, ad ["Benjamin Workman, Next Tom's Coffee-House ... to Mr. Hauksbee)"]. Original full paneled speckled calf; neatly rebacked to match, preserving original leather spine gilt-stamped label. Bookplate of ALLAN A. C. SWINTON, Fellow of the Royal Society. ALAN ARCHIBALD CAMPBELL-SWINTON'S COPY WITH HIS BOOKPLATE. Third edition (first issued in 1667, with later editions in 1702, 1722, 1734). This historically important work was first issued to record the first history of the Royal Society and to repute the attacks levied against the Society by Henry Stubbs [or Stubbe], who contended that Spat's work was "destructive to the established Religion and Church of England." Abraham Cowley, on the other hand, praised the author and his work in an ode to the Royal Society which prefixes the main work. Further, Dr. Samuel Johnson declared it "one of the few books which selection of sentiment and elegance of diction have been able to preserve, though written upon a subject flux and transitory." - DNB. "... first published in 1667. Its 438 pages constitute a large and puzzling work on an institution barely seven years old when the book appeared. Since its concerns and their implications touched all major aspects of contemporary affairs, not least religion, the infant Royal Society quickly became involved in controversy and detraction, against which even the good fortune of royal patronage proved insufficient...It was the first design of the History to explain the nature, organization, work, and aims of the Royal Society to the public thus showing that the promotion of its affairs was a national, even a patriotic, enterprise that promised both a healing of the wounds left by the recent turbulent events and great material benefits. The History was a piece of public relations, even of propaganda. The materials that went into it was carefully supervised and selected, and its omissions and suppressions are as significant as its contents." - DSB. Hans Aarsleff gives a superb assessment of the work and its contents as well as its position in history and the controversy relating to the publication since its inception. It includes extensive accounts of some valuable experience which had not been previously printed. Among these are Robert Hooke's meteorological account, "A Method for making a History of the Weather" [with an engraved plate], and Rooke's "Directions for the Observations of the Eclipses of the Moon," followed by his "Discourse Concerning the Observations of the Eclipses of the Satellites of Jupiter," Goddard, "A Proposal for making wine," Hooke, "An Account of a Dog dissected," Lord Brouncker, "Experiments of the Recoiling of Guns," and Henshaw, "The History of the Making of Salt-Peter," Sir William Petty, "An Apparatus to the History of the Common Practices of Dying," and other papers. "In 1663 Sprat was elected a fellow of the Royal Society. His History of the Royal Society of London came out in 1667, and was often republished down to 1764. A French translation appeared at Geneva in 1669, and at Paris in 1670. Only the second part specifically relates to the society, the first and third deal respectively with ancient philosophy and experimental knowledge ... Cowley, in his ode to the Royal Society, praised Sprat's work, and Dr. Johnson declared it 'one of the few books which selection of sentiment and elegance of diction have been able to preserve, though written upon a subject flux and transitory.' Written in excellent English, it impresses even modern readers with its 'bold and liberal spirit' of observation" (Thomas Seccombe in DNB). This copy is unusual to one point: the added leaf in the back of the book is an ad: "Benjamin Workman, Next Tom's Coffee-House ... to Mr. Hauksbee)". Workman, according to the advertisement, "furnishes gentlemen with all sorts of instruments and machines, used in several parts both of mathematics and natural philosophy, including navigation, astronomy, geography, surveying, gauging, dialing, mechanicks, opticks, hydrostatics... globes, slide-rules, magic lanterns, camera obscuras, air-pumps, condensers, fountains, etc. Bishop Thomas Sprat, whose lectures were praised by John Evelyn, "became a member of the active and soon influential circle that launched him on his surprising and varied career as the historian and defender of the Royal Society and as a man of the church." - DSB. Provenance: Alan Archibald Campbell-Swinton, (1853-1930), F.R.S., Scottish consulting electrical engineer, responsible for the theoretical basis for the electronic television, even experimented with the cathode ray tubes for electronic transmission. He wrote a paper, The Elementary Principles of Electric Lighting, London, 1886. In 1897 he took a patent with Charles A. Parsons, on "Improvements in reversing steam engines." Following that, he wrote a paper, "On the Source of the Roentgen Rays in Focus Tubes," which was read before the Royal Society, June 16, 1898, being one of the first scientists to recognize the application of radiography to medicine. The bookplate was designed and drawn by Graham Johnston, Edinburgh, with his initials, and executed in 1903. See: Burns, R. W. (1998). Television: An International History of the Formative Years.

         Oppian's Halieuticks of the Nature of Fishes and Fishing of the Ancients in V. Books. Translated from the Greek, with an Account of Oppian's Life and Writings, and a Catalogue of his Fishes

      Oxford: Printed at the Theater, . First edition in English. 1722 - Pp. (8), 232, (7, list of subscribers); engraved title vignette. Early brown half-calf leather, spine with five raised bands, title is lettered in gilt on a red morocco label in one compartment, gilt armorial vignette in another compartment, over gray marbled boards, 8vo. This work was written by the Greek scholar Oppianus (Oppian) who lived in the second century A.D. Casey Wood (p. 500) notes that the first time it appeared in published form was in 1478 in the Italian city-state of Florence. A second edition was published in 1508. The volume offered here is the first edition in English that was translated directly from the original Greek. Casey Wood (pg. 500) observes: "The labor of translating this Greco-Roman author was divided between Mr. Diaper (Pt. 1, Books I and II) and John Jones (Pt. 2, Books III to V). The latter contributor also wrote an account of Oppian's life and writings and compiled a catalogue of his Fishes. Dean's Bibliography of Fishes (volume III, p. 295) says that 'of all the ancient writers on fish and fishing, Oppian is easily the most important.' The contests between rival factions in the sea are amusingly drawn in the lines relating to the Lobster, the Lamprey, and the Preke (octopus). The remarkable color-changes of the last named were well known to the ancients (Book II)". The catalogue of fishes at the end of the work is of taxonomic importance since it lists all fishes known to Oppian in the 2nd century A.D. These fishes are listed with both their Greek and Latin names. The front endpaper bears the signature of Dan Lyfons of All Souls College at Oxford, dated 1752. Daniel Lyfons, M. D. became a Physician to the General Hospital at Bath. The front endpaper also has the armorial bookplate of Ferdinand Grant Loeb (1865 - 1913). Light foxing to the front endpapers and to the half-title; a tight, bright and clean copy in near fine condition in a very attractive early binding.

         Oppian's Halieuticks of the Nature of Fishes and Fishing of the Ancients in V. Books. Translated from the Greek, with an Account of Oppian's Life and Writings, and a Catalogue of his Fishes

      Oxford: Printed at the Theater, 1722. First edition in English.. Light foxing to the front endpapers and to the half-title; a tight, bright and clean copy in near fine condition in a very attractive early binding.. Pp. (8), 232, (7, list of subscribers); engraved title vignette. Early brown half-calf leather, spine with five raised bands, title is lettered in gilt on a red morocco label in one compartment, gilt armorial vignette in another compartment, over gray marbled boards, 8vo. This work was written by the Greek scholar Oppianus (Oppian) who lived in the second century A.D. Casey Wood (p. 500) notes that the first time it appeared in published form was in 1478 in the Italian city-state of Florence. A second edition was published in 1508. The volume offered here is the first edition in English that was translated directly from the original Greek. Casey Wood (pg. 500) observes: "The labor of translating this Greco-Roman author was divided between Mr. Diaper (Pt. 1, Books I and II) and John Jones (Pt. 2, Books III to V). The latter contributor also wrote an account of Oppian's life and writings and compiled a catalogue of his Fishes. Dean's Bibliography of Fishes (volume III, p. 295) says that 'of all the ancient writers on fish and fishing, Oppian is easily the most important.' The contests between rival factions in the sea are amusingly drawn in the lines relating to the Lobster, the Lamprey, and the Preke (octopus). The remarkable color-changes of the last named were well known to the ancients (Book II)". The catalogue of fishes at the end of the work is of taxonomic importance since it lists all fishes known to Oppian in the 2nd century A.D. These fishes are listed with both their Greek and Latin names. The front endpaper bears the signature of Dan Lyfons of All Souls College at Oxford, dated 1752. Daniel Lyfons, M. D. became a Physician to the General Hospital at Bath. The front endpaper also has the armorial bookplate of Ferdinand Grant Loeb (1865 - 1913).

Text block tight and firm, a good copy. Sebastien Le Prestre, Seigneur de Vauban and later Marquis de Vauban (1633-1707), commonly referred to as Vauban, was a Marshal of France and the foremost military engineer of his age. He was famous for his skill in both designing fortifications and in breaking through them. He also advised Louis XIV on how to consolidate France's borders, to make them more defensible. He made the radical suggestion of giving up some land that was indefensible to allow for a stronger, less porous border with France's neighbours. He was involved in the Siege of Maastricht (1673), the Siege of Valenciennes (1677) and the fortification of the cities of Strasbourg (1681) and Landau (1688). Often attributed to the pen of Vauban, this work is actually a translation of the Chevalier de Cambray's "Maniere de fortifier de Mr. de Vauban" and was first published in English in 1691. The translator's Dedicatory Epistle is signed A. S. (Abel Swall). Recognised as an important work in its field the English edition was reprinted twice more in the 18th century after our fourth edition in 1748 and 1762. However it is very scarce in any edition. The book is in 3 sections: pages 1-61 A New Treatise of Geometry; pages 61-186 A Treatise of Fortification; pages 187-213 Military orders and the Art of Gunnery. Spaulding and Karpinski, Early Military Books in the Michigan Libraries, page 23, No. 201. English translation not in Sotheby's Library of the Earls of Macclesfield, Part 10. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. Further images on request. POSTAGE AT COST.
