      Santiago. [various dates ca. 1722-1762].. Approximately 525 pages of Spanish manuscript records in a variety of hands, plus approximately fifteen blank pages. Folio. Dbd. Edges lightly worn, occasional moderate dampstaining and soiling. 18th- century stamp tax stamps on several leaves, including a few blanks. In very good condition. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. A massive collection of manuscript legal documents generated in Santiago, Chile between 1722 and 1762. The collection records a wide range of legal notices including royal decrees from Spain, affirmations that such decrees were received and reviewed, and updates and references to earlier laws. The majority of the documents mention local figures such as high government officials, church leaders, and other members of the local aristocracy; a few refer to members of other sectors of the community, including mulattoes and "Indios infieles;" and a few others include news of royal figures in Spain. The subjects detailed in these documents include financial matters and accounts, land holdings, religious matters (including organizations, missionaries, and rituals), the naming of judges, criminal acts (including homicides), judicial decisions, visits and actions performed by different fiscals, and numerous other legal matters concerning everyday life in colonial Chile documented over the course of four decades in the mid-18th century. In addition to the content of the texts, the formulaic elements and the physical characteristics of the manuscripts are also notable as evidence of when and where the documents were produced. These include the various hands in which the documents are written, signatures of officials and scribes, standard formulas for the different types of legal documents and summaries included at the end of particular texts (both comparable to the forms found in printed versions of similar laws), Maltese crosses inscribed at the beginning of certain royal documents, and stamp tax stamps with different dates found on several leaves of paper. A vast gathering of mid-18th-century Spanish legal manuscript documents produced in Chile, with much potential for additional study and research.

The work is dedicated to Newton, whom Whiston succeeded as Lucasian Professor at Cambridge in 1701. Wing W-1696

De la veritable Equanimité, dit l'Abandon. 4. De la Regeneration. 5. Dialogue de la Vie fuperfenfuelle. 6. De la contemplation divine. 7. Entretien d'une Ame illuminée avec une autre qui n'eft pas illuminée. 8. Des quatre Complexions. Par Jacob Böhme, Du vieux-Seidenbourg, nommé communement le Theo-Philosophe Teutonique. Traduit de l'Allemand.

      imprimé par Gotthard Schlechtiger, 1722 - A Berlin, imprimé par Gotthard Schlechtiger, 1722. In 12 de [8]-438-[1]pp., reliure dos lisse en basane brune à petits coins en basane brune de l'époque, pièce de titre de basane noire surlignée et soulignée de quadruples filets dorés, titre doré, 4 trous de vers dans la partie inférieure externe du premier plat, 8 petits trous de vers dans la partie inférieure interne du second plat, mouillure dans l'angle supérieur externe des premiers feuillets et mouillure dans la marge inférieure des derniers feuillets sans gravité, quelques rousseurs, gravure en bandeau en début de volume, plusieurs différents culs-de-lampe sous forme de blason encadré de plantes ou pot de fleurs, titre en rouge et en noir sur la page de titre, bon et bel exemplaire. Jakob Böhme (1575-1624) est un thésophe allemand considéré comme un précurseur de spinoza, schelling et Hegel et son influence fut immense sur Franz von Baader et les romantiques allemands. Profondément religieux, il n'était ni catholique, ayant en horreur le papisme, ni protestant, ne croyant pas à la prédistination. Sa thésophie manifestait une connaissance profonde de l'astrologie et une influence importante de l'astrologie. Mais cette théosophie expose le mythe fondamental de la gnose chrétienne moderne. Cette pensée métaphysique tentait de démontrer le passage du non-être à l'être. Il fut même considéré comme un très important fondateur de courant philosophique, à travers le mysticisme, tout comme Bacon l'était avec l'empirisme. Il est l'auteur de nombreux ouvrages dont ''Aurora (Die morgenröte im Aufgang)'' (1612), ''De incanatione verbi'' (1620), ''Christosophia (der weg zu Christo)'' (1621), ''Mysterium magnum'' (1623), ''De testamenti Christi'' (1623).

"Through their scope, originality, and influence, the writings of Jean-Philippe Rameau have attained a prominence nearly unparalleled in the history of music theory. Many of the ideas which shape modern analytical practice were established initially by Rameau." Damschroder and Williams p. 250. & & "A profoundly original thinker as well as the most important French composer of the 18th century, Rameau formulated many of the concepts that have remained at the core of Western harmonic theory to the present day... The epoch-making Traité, his first theoretical work, contains the most essential of his principles... Produced by one of the first-rate minds of the Age of Reason, the Traité is the real cornerstone in the modern theory of harmony." Reese: Fourscore Classics of Music Literature, pp. 66-67.& & The Nouveau Système expanded the first enunciation of Rameau&#39;s theories as presented in the Traité, which were then further developed in his Génération Harmonique published in 1737.

        Lettre de R. Ismael Ben Abraham, Juif Converti, à M. l'Abbé Houteville, sur son Livre intitulé "La Religion Chrétienne prouvée par les Faits".

      A Paris, chez C. L. Thiboust, 1722. - in-12. XXVIII. 2ff. 205pp. Plein veau brun, dos à nerfs orné (reliure de l'époque). Edition Originale. Ouvrage du grand orientaliste français Etienne Fourmont (1683-1745), qui le rédigea à l'occasion de la publication, la même année, du livre de l'abbé Houteville ("La Religion Chrétienne prouvée par les faits"). C'est une réfutation véhémente, exprimée à travers la voix d'un juif imaginaire, des préjugés théologiques entretenus en France à l'égard des juifs, même convertis. L'auteur dénonçait notamment la méconnaissance de la langue hébraïque et des langues orientales dans les milieux érudits français. "En Allemagne et en Hollande, comme il y a beaucoup de Juifs, et que les Langues Orientales y sont cultivées, s'il arrive quelque dispute littéraire, on ne s'étonne nullement de voir un Rabbin de la partie: les François souffrent, lorsqu'ils entendent parler d'un Juif: ils se défient du Juif converti, comme des autres; l'esprit toujours préoccupé d'un Judaisme qui n'est plus, ils ne le voyent agréablement qu'après quatre ou cinq générations" (préface).

        Stor graverad plansch över slaget vid Lesna (eller Lesnaja) den 28 september 1708, efter målning av Martin le Jeune och graverad av Nikolas Martin de Larmessin.

      Utan ort, (ca 1722). Stor folio. (53x74 cm). Något svagt avdrag. Vikt på mitten och en bläckplump i övre hörnet. Snoilsky s. 206, med ett defekt exemplar. Peter den Store & Karl XII nr. 208. Skildring av slaget. I mitten syns en infanteristrid i en skog och i förgrunden, till höger i bild rider tsar Peter med kommandokäpp i handen, åtföljd af generaler och adjutanter. Under bilden rysk text i tre rader. Vid slaget vid byn Lesna segrade Peter den store över Adam Ludwig Lewenhaupts svenska kår som var på väg från Riga till Ukraina med förstärkningar till huvudarmén. Segern fick stor betydelse för den ryska stridsmoralen och utnyttjades också duktigt i den ryska propagandan; slaget kallades senare för "Poltavaslagets moder". För Karl XII innebar förlusten att han fick ändra sina planer för det fortsatta fälttåget, och bl.a. avstå från marschen mot Moskva. Den ryske hovmålaren Pierre-Denis Martin le Jeune (1663-1742) målade ett antal stora bataljmålningar över ryska segrar i Nordiska kriget, vilka graverades av bl.a. Charles Simonneau (1645-1728) och Nikolas Martin de Larmessin (1640-1725)

Occasional small marginal closed tear, some neatly repaired on verso. Darkening to vellum. Near Fine copy. Quarto (6-1/2" x 9") bound in contemporary full vellum. [xvi], 170, [1] pages. Illustrated with an engraved frontispiece, an engraved dedication page, and 138 lovely full-page copper engravings of various instruments, some quite fanciful, played by people from different cultures in their native costumes (numbered I-CXXXVI, with two plates numbered XII-XIII and XIII-XIV; two plates with duplicate numbers but different images XXIX and LXXVIII; and two unnumbered plates. The scarce First Issue (Brunet, column 1086). The Second Issue, as well as the 1723 edition, had 151 plates with additional text in the index. A beautifully illustrated book and one of the principal sources for the history of musical instruments in the 18th century as well as being one of the earliest attempts to describe and depict every known musical instrument from the ancient times. Each instrument is illustrated being played by a native from its region of origin giving the book additional interest ethnologically and for its costumes. The work is dedicated to King David, who is shown playing the harp in the frontispiece. Of especial interest is the folding plate depicting the surreal and magnificent organ designed by Michele Todino for the Palazzo Signori Verospi in Rome. The learned Jesuit polymath, Filippo Bonanni (1638&#150;1725), published on a wide spectrum of subjects, ranging from natural history and biology to numismatics. The present book, his last, is based on the Society&#39;s Collegio Romano&#39;s collection where Bonanni succeeded his teacher Athanasius Kircher as professor of mathematics.

        A Map of Carolana and of the River Meschacebe &c

      [London: 1722-1741]. Copper-engraved map. Inset of the Mississippi delta titled "A Map of the Mouth of the River Meschacebe." Old ink manuscript notation in cartouche dating the map 1727. (Old folds). 17 1/4 x 21 3/4 inches. Among the earliest English cartographic depictions of the Mississippi Valley. At the end of the seventeenth century, the Coxe family laid claim to an enormous region in the South based on royal grants received by Dr. Daniel Coxe (1640-1730), with the intention of forming a trading company to establish an English colony at the mouth of the Mississippi River. In 1722 (and with subsequent editions to 1741), Colonel Daniel Coxe (1673-1739), who had travelled in America in 1702, published a description of the region to further his family&#39;s claims. "Apparently to avoid conflict with the established settlements of the lords proprietors only the country west of the settled portion of Carolina was claimed by Coxe" (Cumming). Beyond his own claims, Coxe published the work to raise awareness of the significant potential of the area and the dangers posed by French incursions. Partly based on mappings by Delisle, the map holds the distinction of being among the earliest English depictions of the Mississippi Valley and one of few maps to name the region Carolana. It improved on many of the previous maps by eliminating the mountain ranges that were often shown as running beside the Mississippi River, as well as correctly fixing the location of the Appalachian and Ozark mountains. It extends as far north as the Great Lakes and includes an inset of the Mississippi Delta. A hachured line on the map running from Lake Champlain in the north to Port Royal in the south delineates what the French believed the boundary to be between the English colonies and their vast Louisiana claim. English place names, particularly in the large inset of the Mississippi Delta, reflect the British designs on the region. Cumming, Southeast in Early Maps 190; Charting Louisiana, pp. 41-44; cf. Church 886; cf. Clark I:68; cf. European Americana 741/48; cf. Howes C826; cf. JCB (1)III:679; cf. Sabin 17281; cf. Vail 409.

      Torino: Reycends & Guiberts. (c. 1722). oblong folio, contemporary blue wrappers. 26 engraved leaves (of 28).. Text in Italian. A manual by Italian writing master Pitois. One of a number of his works produced in Turin by Reycends Brothers and the book/mapseller firm Guibert. At the beginning of the 18th century, the Rome-Venice hegemony in penmanship was waning, due to growing French influence in calligraphy. This slant towards French taste is revealed in the "Moderno" of the title, and the fact that most of the twenty-six leaves are marked as engraved in Paris by artist Claude-Auguste de Berey. From 1690 to 1730 de Berey, or Berey, engraved the plates for several well-known French works on calligraphy. All the firm&#39;s writing manuals printed at this time were engraved in Paris (Barker, p. 147). Two leaves lacking. Soiled, margins chipped, old fold at center.

        Tabulae Anatomicae, 1722 (Folio Size, 47 Plates)

      Amsterdam: R. & G. Wetstenios, 1722. Second edition. Folio. 375 x 235 cm. Contemporary brown boards, calf spine with six raised bands, label with title. Engraved title-page showing illustration of a dissection and exquisite 47 full-page engraved plates all fine, with superior registration and dark impressions. On an attached string is the original ruler usually not found. Eustachio&#39;s finely executed drawings for the Tabulae depicting the thorax, nervous system, various organs and vascular structures were equal to any drawn in the period. The Dutch 1722 is of great rarity and few complete copies have survived in contemporary bindings. Tomlinson remarks, "Eustachio&#39;s plates are remarkable not only for the advanced anatomical knowledge shown, but also for the original method of identification of structures drawn on the plates, and for their artistic qualities." A complete, tall copy, contents clean and bright with the only flaw being a crude mending of tears to the lower corner of the title page. There is a loss of some of the paper, but not affecting any lettering or the engraving. Binding worn with top one inch of spine worn away, corners chipped, edges worn. Still a well-preserved and attractive binding; moreso, a nearly fine example of all of the engravings.

Bound in contemporary gilt paneled full red morocco, a.e.g. Spine faded, and slightly split. A Handsome copy. Lowndes 1726; Brunet IV: 196; Heckscher 1483; Westwood & Satchel, 164; lDean&#39;s Bibliography of Fishes (Dean III:295) states that "of all the ancient writers on fish and fishing, Oppian is easily the most important"; Wood p. 500 . "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. 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 know to the ancients (Book II). "-Wood

Text block tight and firm. An acceptable working copy of a rare military book. Sébastien Le Prestre, Seigneur de Vauban and later Marquis de Vauban (1633&#150;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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;s &#147;Maniere de fortifier de Mr. de Vauban" and was first published in English in 1691. The translator&#39;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. Not in Sotheby&#39;s Library of the Earls of Macclesfield, Part 10. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING.

Plein veau blond marbré de l'époque. Dos lisses ornés de pièces de titre de maroquin rouge, pièces de tomaisons teintées de noir, caissons et fleurons dorés. Filets simples à froid en encadrement des plats. Toutes tranches rouges. Quatre coins émoussés. Bel exemplaire. Ensemble des trois ouvrages que Bayle consacre à la critique de la superstition, de l'intolérance et du fanatisme religieux en prenant commme base de sa discussion le passage de la comète. C'est le premier essai par lequel Bayle se fit connaître et il possède déjà toutes les qualités d'analyse qui feront la renommée de l'auteur. La Continuation des pensées diverses, où Bayle approfondit sa thèse, fut rédigée près de vingt ans après les Pensées diverses. La comparaison poussée entre l'athéisme et l'idolâtrie qu&#146;il développe, et la préférence déclarée de l&#146;auteur pour le premier, firent scandale.
