        Britannia: or a chorographical description of Great Britain and Ireland, together with the adjacent islands. Written in Latin by William Camden, Clarenceux, King at Arms: and translated into English, with additions and improvements. The second edition. Revised, digested, and published, with large additions, by Edmund Gibson, D. D. Rector of Lambeth; and now Bishop of Lincoln, and Dean of His Majesty's Chapel-Royal

      London: printed by Mary Matthews, for Awnsham Churchill, and sold by William Taylor, in Pater-Noster-Row, 1722. Full Calf. Fine. A pinnacle of English scholarship, the first comprehensive topographical survey of Great Britain, complete in two tall folio volumes, mainly printed in two numbered columns: [66]pp,cclxviii columns,[2]pp,696 columns; [2],697-1526 columns,[176, appendices, index and errata]pp. Contemporary cambridge-style paneled calf (joints very neatly repaired), spine in seven compartments between raised bands, red morocco lettering pieces gilt; title pages in red and black, copper-engraved frontispiece portrait of Camden, 10 plates of coins and antiquities, 51 folding or double-page maps (including 42 county maps), additional engravings and woodcut illustrations in text. An unusually Fine set, original binding with handsome patina; pages bright, fresh and unmarked; plates and maps in deep, rich impressions. PMM 101 and Gibson's Library, p. 87 (for first edition). Goldsmiths' 6088. ESTC Citation No. T144701. Second (and Best) Edition of this essential translation (by Edmund Gibson), the first successful transcription into English, with maps by Robert Morden. "Not a history, the Britannia attempts (in the words of Gibson's translation of Camden's preface) 'to restore Britain to Antiquity, and Antiquity to Britain'-the charge that Camden says was given him by the 'great Restorer of old Geography', [Abraham] Ortelius himself. It does so by documenting the ancient pre-Roman British past using every kind of primary historical evidence imaginable, whether written records, inscriptions, literary remains, material both historical and mythological, or testimony drawn from the physical landscape. In his use of non-literary evidence Camden was a leading figure in his generation, and his work in numismatics . . . has been described as 'of pioneering importance' (Piggott, 204). Recognizing the imperfection of the written record, particularly the scarcity of genuine British material, Camden looks to multiple kinds of evidence to push the record as far back as possible and to trace continuities through the different periods of British history." Britannia made its début, in Latin, on 2 May 1586, with enlarged editions following in 1587, 1590, 1594, 1600 and 1607, the final Latin edition in Camden's lifetime, published in folio and containing an index, maps by Saxton and Norden, and engravings of coins, monuments, and topographical sites-all in all, an impressive and editorially sophisticated work of scholarship. The first translation into English came in 1610 , at the hand of Philemon Holland . Yet despite Camden's collaboration, "the translation is often inaccurate and takes liberties with the material, and for this reason is regarded as inferior to Edmund Gibson's translation of 1695 (ours is the second, enlarged edition of that essential translation, published in 1722). Gibson was assisted in his efforts by numerous scholars, including Samuel Pepys, and his translation was held in high esteem for the better part of the 18th century until It was finally superseded in 1789 by the edition of Richard Gough. (Literary Encyclopedia) "If Camden was not the first English historian (in the modern sense of the word), topographer, and antiquarian, he was certainly the first to relate the three studies, and his Britannia, primarily topographical, is the first book which shows, even in a rudimentary form, the need to evaluate sources. It was the revolutionary subject matter, and its even more revolutionary treatment of the subject, which made it at once the vehicle and the model for research in all three subjects for the next two hundred and fifty years." (PMM).

Hardcover in old vellum which had been painted or lacquered red. 35cm. Cover rather heavily scuffed removing many small pieces of the red paint/lacquer. Lacks 136 plates. Text has some browning but is generally sound and clean. Vol. I has a square (2-3cm.) piece replaced on edge of title-leaf which also has a couple of indecipherable purple rectanglar stamps on the verso. German text. Most of the missing plates were probably in Vol. I (rulers and royalty) since that volume now has less than 90 while Vol. II (nobility) has over 160. The second volume has a different title (except for the first few words). These two volumes were apparently published (or first published) as an appendix to Khevenhuller's massive Annales Ferdinandei (1721-1726).

Golden wheels coaching contreplats decorated in their centers of weapons of Heloise Louise de Bourbon-Condé. Golden wheels on the cuts and caps. All red sprinkled edges. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition, après l'originale parue en 1697. Exemplaire aux armes des princes de Bourbon Condé, d'azur à trois fleurs de lys d'or, au bastion de gueules, ayant vraisemblablement appartenu à Louise-anne de Bourbon Condé, dite Mademoiselle de Charolais, fille de la fille légitime de Louis XIV, Mademoiselle de Nantes. Reliures de l'époque en plein veau brun. Dos à cinq nerfs richement ornés de caissons et fleurons dorés, ainsi que d'une pièce de titre de maroquin rouge. Roulettes dorées en encadrement des contreplats ornés en leurs centres des armes des princes de Bourbon-Condé. Roulettes dorées sur les coupes et les coiffes. Toutes tranches mouchetées rouges. Coiffes, mors et coins très habilement restaurées.  Ces Lettres nouvelles sont un recueil de chroniques du temps, d'informations sur la ville et la cour, de fables, de contes et de satires. Les 13 lettres d'une dame à un cavalier composent un court récit. Le troisième volume est consitué des Lettres de Babet. Boursault est davantage connu et resté comme un dramaturge, bien que la postérité n'est souvent retenu que son rôle de censeur de L'école des femmes de Molière et de sa participation malheureuse dans les querelles théâtrale du XVIIe. L'auteur a pourtant oeuvré dans de nombreux domaines littéraires, notamment la nouvelle et le roman, dans une plume libre et légère, ainsi qu'on peut le constater dans cet ouvrage.

        TABULAE ANATOMICAE Quas è tenebris tandem vindicatas et Clementis XI Pont. Max. munificentia dono acceptas. Praefatione notisque illustravit, Jo. Maria Lancisius.

      Amstelaedami, apud R. & G. Wetstenios, 1722. In folio p. (mm. 388x228), p. pergam. coeva (risg. rifatti), tit. ms. al dorso, pp. XLIV,115,(13), con interessante vignetta inc. in rame al frontespizio che raffigura una lezione di anatomia; ornato da grandi iniziali inc. su legno. L'opera è illustrata f.t. da 47 tavv. anatomiche, inc. in rame da Giulio de Musi, tutte dettagliatamente descritte a fronte. "Seconda edizione". Queste tavole, completate nel 1552, non furono stampate all'epoca e vennero dimenticate. Furono ritrovate in Urbino, presso gli eredi di Pier Matteo Pini (allievo e fedelissimo collaboratore dell'Eustachi) grazie all'interessamento del Lancisi il quale, nel 1714, ne curò una sontuosa edizione che gareggia con la 'Fabrica' del Vesalio nel fornire lo stato della iconografia anatomica attorno alla metà del Cinquecento. Così Belloni, p. 308. Cfr. Premuda, p. 136 e segg.: "Se le tavole dello scienziato marchigiano fossero state pubblicate nel 1552, non appena pronte, Eustachi avrebbe potuto figurare accanto a Vesalio come uno dei fondatori della scienza anatomica moderna.. Le tavole eustachiane sono per lo più inferiori a quelle del Vesalio per bellezza, ma pari e talvolta superiori ad esse per precisione e per accuratezza nei dettagli”. Cfr. anche Garrison-Morton,391 che cita la I ed. del 1714: "He discovered the Eustachian tube, the thoracic duct, the adrenals and the abducens nerve, and gave the first accurate description of the uterus. He also described the cochlea, the muscles of the throat and the origin of the optic nerves" - Brunet,II,1113. Solo 1 carta iniziale restaur. per strappi margin., altrimenti esemplare con barbe, ben conservato.

        Sexology handbook].[Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India], 1811. 4to (23 x 15.5 cm). Manuscript in Persian, written in black ink with frequent words in red, with each page in a frame of blue, gold and red rules (the gold wider) with an outer frame of gold rules near the edges, the opening of the text elaborately decorated with flowers, vines and abstract forms in blue, lavender, green, orange, white, gold and bronze, and 29 original erotic illustrations (2 full-page, 27 half-page) in numerous colours of gouache and with extensive use of gold and some silver. With tissue guard leaves between most pairs of facing pages. Contemporary black calf, each board with embossed gilt paper inlays, gold-tooled spine, gold-tooled brown calf paste-downs.

      - For background information: Preeti Awasthi, Awadh - congenial home for nurturing arts - in historical perspective of painting and music (1722-1856), PdD thesis, University of Lucknow, 2014. A rare example of an early 19th-century north-Indian sexology handbook, beautifully and extensively illustrated. It was commissioned by Saadat Ali Khan II (ca. 1752-1814), 5th Nawab of the princely state of Awadh (officially called Oudh by the British Raj) and written by his personal physician (hakim), possibly Ali Sharif, who had been hakim to the Nawabs before and after Saadat's reign. The illustrations (7.5 x 9 and 14.5 x 9 cm) were made by the official royal painter, who has not been identified. The manuscript is divided into 14 chapters including those on development of male sexuality, development of female sexuality; things to do before, during and after copulation; descriptions of 14 sexual positions (assan); medical compounds for erectile dysfunction; and information about the female orgasm. It illustrates one male homosexual couple and one lesbian couple. Awadh under the Nawabs, straddling the present Indian-Nepalese border, was famous for its harmonious mixing of the Hindu religion and Islam (the Nawabs were Shi'ite). The Awadh school of miniatures "gradually acquired a prominent place in the cultural history of India which no other province gained" providing a "glorious heritage ., we should make efforts to preserve the rich cultural legacy of Awadh." (Awasthi, p. 102).One new endleaf has been inserted at the end and the decoration at the opening of the text (10.5 x 8.5 cm) was clearly taken from an earlier manuscript. The gutter folds of many leaves have been restored and the sewing is later than the binding. With some stains and worm holes, mostly in the gutter margin, and a few leaves with tattered edges, but generally in good condition and with the illustrations well preserved. The binding is loose, with 1 leaf detached, and slightly rubbed, with a few small parts of the gilt paper scuffed. A beautifully and extensively illustrated north-Indian sex manual, with a very topical mixture of ethnic backgrounds and sexual orientations. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        L'Antiquite Expliquee, et Representee en Figures

      1722. MONTFAUCON, Bernard de. L’Antiquité Expliquée, et Representée en Figures. Paris: Florentin Delaulne, et al., 1722, 1724. Five volumes in ten, and five volume supplement. Fifteen volumes in all. Folio (12 by 17 inches), contemporary full mottled calf, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, raised bands, marbled endpapers. $18,500.Second edition, revised and corrected from the 1719 first, with the five-volume 1724 supplement. Magnificent set of Montfaucon’s landmark work on classical archaeology, with nearly 1400 engraved plates (including approximately 250 double-page and folding plates). A splendid copy in beautiful full contemporary calf-gilt.De Montfaucon (1655-1741), a Benedictine of the Congregation of Saint-Maur devoted to historical and ecclesiastical scholarship, pioneered the studies of Greek paleography and archaeology. “His Antiquité… surveyed in fifteen volumes the social and artistic aspects of the ancient civilizations; and the unfinished Monuments de la Monarchie Française tried to do the same for early French history. These works can well be called foundation stones of scientific archaeology” (Printing and the Mind of Man 175). In preparing L’Antiquité… de Montfaucon received contributions and assistance from many of the greatest European collections of antiquities of the period; most of these are credited adjacent to each of their respective illustrations. “As this work has never been completely replaced, it still conserves its long-standing value… Beautiful copies are not easy to come by” (Brunet 28960). “In spite of the imperfections that are impossible to avoid in such an immense work… one cannot deny that it has contributed to the spread, particularly in France, of the interest in archaeology, or that he did not advance this science among us” (Biographie Universelle). Text in French and Latin. First published in 1719, in an edition of 1800 copies that sold out in two months despite its enormous size and expense. Cicognara 2493. Armorial bookplate on verso of each title page. Owner signature, dated 1837. Bookplate of Philadelphia attorney John T. Montgomery, with a presentation bookplate of the Philadelphia Club indicating that he presented this set to the Club in 1888.Interior generally clean. Expert restoration to contemporary calf, mostly joints and spine ends. A monumental work, most desirable in beautiful contemporary calf-gilt.

With tissue guard leaves between most pairs of facing pages. Contemporary black calf, each board with embossed gilt paper inlays, gold-tooled spine, gold-tooled brown calf paste-downs.

      For background information: Preeti Awasthi, Awadh - congenial home for nurturing arts - in historical perspective of painting and music (1722-1856), PdD thesis, University of Lucknow, 2014. A rare example of an early 19th-century north-Indian sexology handbook, beautifully and extensively illustrated. It was commissioned by Saadat Ali Khan II (ca. 1752-1814), 5th Nawab of the princely state of Awadh (officially called Oudh by the British Raj) and written by his personal physician (hakim), possibly Ali Sharif, who had been hakim to the Nawabs before and after Saadat's reign. The illustrations (7.5 x 9 and 14.5 x 9 cm) were made by the official royal painter, who has not been identified. The manuscript is divided into 14 chapters including those on development of male sexuality, development of female sexuality; things to do before, during and after copulation; descriptions of 14 sexual positions (assan); medical compounds for erectile dysfunction; and information about the female orgasm. It illustrates one male homosexual couple and one lesbian couple. Awadh under the Nawabs, straddling the present Indian-Nepalese border, was famous for its harmonious mixing of the Hindu religion and Islam (the Nawabs were Shi'ite). The Awadh school of miniatures "gradually acquired a prominent place in the cultural history of India which no other province gained" providing a "glorious heritage ..., we should make efforts to preserve the rich cultural legacy of Awadh." (Awasthi, p. 102).One new endleaf has been inserted at the end and the decoration at the opening of the text (10.5 x 8.5 cm) was clearly taken from an earlier manuscript. The gutter folds of many leaves have been restored and the sewing is later than the binding. With some stains and worm holes, mostly in the gutter margin, and a few leaves with tattered edges, but generally in good condition and with the illustrations well preserved. The binding is loose, with 1 leaf detached, and slightly rubbed, with a few small parts of the gilt paper scuffed. A beautifully and extensively illustrated north-Indian sex manual, with a very topical mixture of ethnic backgrounds and sexual orientations.

        Traité de la richesse des princes et de leurs états: et des moyens simples et naturels pour y parvenir.

      Paris: Theodore Le Gras (vol. II Florentin Delaulne),, 1722-23. Three volumes, duodecimo. Contemporary speckled calf, spines richly decorated gilt in compartments, red morocco labels, marbled endpapers and edges. Engraved vignettes to each title and first leaf of text. Head of spine to vol. I chipped, small wormhole to lower margin of volume III touching one letter of title imprint; scattered light spotting; a very good set. First and only edition of Carl's path-breaking work on economics. A major influence on Adam Smith, quoted in the Wealth of Nations, the present work anticipates the socio-economic concepts of François Quesnay and the physiocrats, and gives examples repeated in the great Encyclopédie of Diderot and d'Alembert some thirty years later. This remarkably scarce work has only received proper appraisal in recent times, particularly in the pioneering study of the Austrian economist, Anton Tautscher, Ernst Ludwig Carl (1682 - 1743), der Begründer der Volkswirtschaftslehre, 1939. A student of theology, then law, Carl was appointed first secretary to the houses of Brandenburg-Bayreuth and Brandenburg-Ansbach in 1708. In 1720 he travelled to Paris, where he pursued social and economic studies, examining, among other authors, the work of Pierre de Boisguilbert. He became personally acquainted with René-Louis Voyer de Paulmy, Marquis d'Argenson, councillor of state, intendant of justice, police and finance, a reformist and a friend of Voltaire's, and with the enlightened Charles-Irénée Castel, abbé de Saint-Pierre, one of the first to mention the possibility of a European union made by independent and autonomous states, author of the Projet pour rendre la paix perpétuelle en Europe, his famous proposal of an international peace-keeping organisation, and a man whose criticisms of law, politics, and social institutions had a great influence on Rousseau and Kant. It was in this environment that Carl wrote the present work, published anonymously in 1722-1723 under the name of "Mr. C. C. d. P. d. B. Allemand" (Carl, Conseiller du Prince de Brandenburg), a work in which he was "the first to introduce the pin factory as an example to illustrate the division of labour, which more than 50 years later was to be made famous by Adam Smith" (Erik S. Reinert, in "Jacob Bielfeld's 'On the Decline of States' (1760) and its Relevance for Today", footnote 24). "The basic idea of this very remarkable work which, as the preface says, aims at describing all realities of national economy and all perceptions of national welfare in their essential and systematic connection to a uniform method, may be summed up as follows: 'The natural order of economic life unites men in a common production founded upon the division of labour and secures the maximum of well-being to all. The social economy constituted by the natural economic order is the collaboration of the individual economies connected with one another and bound together by mutual dependence. The goods produced are directed by interchange to the place of their use and consumption. In this interchange the price brings their income to all producers'" (Tautscher 1940, p. 99). "With the discovery of Carl's Traité ... the Smith problem can be submitted to a new investigation. Despite the differences between the systems pertaining to the problems of production and circulation set up by Carl and Smith, the comparison, for the most part literal, of passages from Carl's Traité and Smith's lectures such as the Wealth of Nations shows that Smith was considerably influenced by Carl. The dependence of Smith as regards contents is externally apparent from the similar use of examples, such as that of the smith, the production of pins and the viticulture in Spain and Portugal; internally Smith's dependence can be proved from the starting-point of the definition of goods and wealth by way of the necessity and the advantages and disadvantages of the division of labour to the definition of the function of money and the theory of foreign trade ... it is evident then from the above that Smith was undoubtedly influenced by Carl's Traité" (Anton Tautscher, JSTOR, abstract, online).

[2] pp. pen and ink on two parchment membranes (each 23 x 59 in.), in fine hand with large flourished initial at beginning enclosing royal coat-of-arms, with hand-colored and illustrated map on smaller membrane (15 x 13 in.), all joined at bottom edge, with four wax seals, docketing on verso ("Secretar office Perth Amboy 1723. Recorded in Libres D No. 2 fol.7 lo. 13"). Large folio (23 x 29 inches). A Rare Colonial Map and Land Record. A very early New Jersey land record, ornately handwritten in large script with an accompanying hand drawn and hand-colored, illustrated map. This handsome document would be an important addition to any private or institutional collection of Colonial New Jersey history. Between 1683 and 1688, Thomas Codrington, a "merchant of New York City," who would later serve as Sheriff, purchased three tracts of undeveloped land totaling 2,754 acres in East Jersey, in what is now Bridgewater Township, in Somerset County. On May 1706, all three tracts were sold to Phillip French (1667-1707) a colonial merchant who served as the 27th Mayor of New York City from 1702-1703. In his will, French left his real estate "at Raritan River" to his three daughters. Two of his children - Elizabeth, who married Philip Van Horne, and Anne, who married Joseph Reade - survived to adulthood and marriage to receive their inheritance. The land was petitioned by this deed, which reads in part: "For the quantity of two thousand seven hundred and fifty four acres within the limits ... Buildings, Barns, Stables, warehouses ... orchards, gardens, pastures, feedings, and all and Singular other the premises [within] the appurtenances therein mentioned to be Bargained and Sold" Signed by: Cornelius Van Horne, Elizabeth Van Horne, Joseph Reade, Anne Read, and on the verso by Phillip French (III), Sussana French, and Thomas Farmer.

        Tabula Geographica Mexicæ et Floridæ &c. Carte du Mexique et de la Floride des Teres Angloises et des Antilles. du Cours et des Environs de la Riviere de Mississsipi.

      Americas: Amsterdam. Covens et Mortier Dated 1722 in cartouche. Copper engraved map of Canada from Covens & Mortier's " Nieuwe Atlas, Inhoudennde vier Gedeeltens der Waereld.. " Original full wash colour; verso blank. Black and white strap work title cartouche and mile scale [as issued]. The map after Guillaume De l'Isle actually engraved by his father, Claude, also a cartographer.was first published in 1703 and is the first printed map to accurately depict the course, mouth and delta of the Mississippi River. The Missouri River is also shown. Includes many sea routes across the Gulf of Mexico and between the islands. De L'Isle drew the map from the reports brought back to France from the survivor's of the La Salle expedition into the interior of North America. In 1682, René-Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle was the first European to travel from the Great Lakes down the Mississippi River to the Gulf of Mexico. Pierre Le Moyne d'Iberville would travel up the Mississippi to Biloxi in 1699 & 1700, On his third voyage in February 1701, he built a fort at Mobile. He left Louisiana for the last time in April 1702. His brother Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville founded New Orleans in 1718. De L'Isle's map also includes greater accuracy in the Great Lakes region and in its depiction of English settlements along the East Coast. One of the most important and influential maps of the region during the early 18th Century. Dark impression; bright full wash colour; printed on heavy paper; light soiling.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. The French cartographer Guillaume de l'Isle (1675−1726) was admitted into the French Académie Royale des Sciences when he was 27 years old and subsequently became the first person to receive the title Premier Géographe du Roi (principal geographer to the king). At the time de l'Isle was engaged in cartographic research, the prestige of a cartographer and the authority of his maps were gauged by the veracity of the cartographer's sources, i.e., the explorers and travelers who reported details of their travels to geographers and cartographers in Europe. Many of de l'Isle's maps were reissued by the publishing house of Cornelis Mortier and Johannes Coven in Amsterdam in their Atlas Nouveau, which was published in multiple editions, the earliest of which dates to 1730.

        Herengracht Amsterdam - Goll van Franckenstein (1722-1785).

      HERENGRACHT AMSTERDAMTekening in pen en gewassen inkt van de hand van Johann Edler Goll van Franckenstein sr. Afm. 24,3 x 31,8 cm.Goll van Franckenstein (1722-1785) was koopman, bankier, geacht kunstverzamelaar en amateurtekenaar die zich in 1751 in Amsterdam vestigde.Afgebeeld zijn de bruggen over de Herengracht, van de huidige Raadhuisstraat tot aan de Leidsegracht, gezien van noord naar zuid. Linkvoor, om de hoek, bevindt zich de Warmoesgracht, een klein grachtje tussen het Singel en de Herengracht dat in 1895 verdwenen is bij de aanleg van de huidige Raadhuisstraat.De tekening is gemaakt van een zeer laag standpunt in de as van de gracht, waardoor de breedte en de weidsheid van de watervlakte worden benadrukt. Waarschijnlijk heeft Goll deze tekening gemaakt vanuit een bootje dat afgemeerd lag voor het huis Herengracht 158, het woonhuis van Goll. De gracht maakt hier een bocht zodat het huis zich min of meer in de as van het afgebeelde stuk van de gracht bevond.Provenance:Vererfd aan Johann Goll van Franckenstein jr. (1756-1821)Vererfd aan zijn dochter Catharina Antonia Bijleveld (1842-1898)Vererfd aan haar zoon Emil Pieter Bijleveld (1842-1898)Vererfd aan zijn zoon Frank David Bijleveld (1879-1960)Tentoonstelling:Museum Beeckestijn -?Is getekend J.

        Sea notorio como yo el capitan de mar y guerra

      San Sebastián, 1722. - In-folio. 170 feuillets environ. Plein vélin de l'époque, dos lisse. Manuscrit Original sur la généalogie du capitaine de marine Rafael de Eliza y Andiazábal (né en 1682) Originaire de la ville de San Sebastián, on sait de Rafael de Eliza y Andiazábal qu'il embrassa d'abord la carrière des armes, carrière qui lui valut d'être fait Chevalier de l'Ordre de Santiago en 1728. En 1721, il épousa la gaditane Juana Lasquetty Restán, issue d'une riche famille de négociants italiens, avec laquelle il eut 5 enfants dont Eusebia Eliza Lasquetty, mère Juan José Ruiz de Apodaca y Eliza, 16e Capitaine Général de la Real Armada et vice-roi de Nouvelle-Espagne. "Capitan de mar y guerra", le capitaine Eliza était à la tête de la confrérie basque de Cadix, dont la prospérité était notamment assurée par le commerce des Indes. Eliza lui même obtint un droit de passage vers les Indes vers 1717. Il exerça également les fonctions de capitaine du port de San Fernando de Cadix, ville où est aujourd'hui encore stationné le plus ancien régiment d'infanterie de marine d'Espagne. Rédigé en 1722, ce manuscrit reproduit un ensemble de textes notariaux, extraits de registres paroissiaux, et autres témoignages officiels accréditant la noblesse et "pureté de sang" du capitaine Eliza, indispensables pour exercer les fonctions auxquelles il prétendait. Belle page de titre calligraphiée à l'encre rouge et noire. Quelques taches et un travail de vers en marge inférieur affectant une vingtaine de feuillets, sans manque au texte.
