        The History of Timur-Bec, known by the name of Tamerlain the Great, emperor of the Moguls and Tartars. (TWO VOLUMES).

      J. Darby, London 1723 - Volume: xxxi, 542 pp./ Volume II: 428 pp. [20], repaired half-title in volume one, 5 folding maps, some worming occasionally with little loss of text, initial blanks remargined, re-backed set with new spine & endpaper. This is Darby's translation of the French edition by François Pétis de la Croix that had appeared the previous year. Timur (1336 - 1405), historically known as Tamerlane. He conquered West, South and Central Asia and founded the Timurid dynasty. Timur envisioned the restoration of the Mongol Empire of Genghis Khan. As a means of legitimating his conquests, Timur relied on Islamic symbols and language, referring to himself as the Sword of Islam and patronising educational and religious institutions. Timur emerged as the most powerful ruler in the Muslim world after defeating the Mamluks of Egypt and Syria, the emerging Ottoman Empire and the declining Sultanate of Delhi. Timur also decisively defeated the Christian Knights Hospitaller at Smyrna, styling himself a Ghazi. By the end of his reign, Timur had also gained complete control over all the remnants of the Chagatai Khanate, Ilkhanate, Golden Horde and even attempted to restore the Yuan dynasty. Timur's generally recognised biographers are Ali Yazdi, commonly called Sharaf ud-Din, author of the Zafarnameh, translated by Petis de la Croix in 1722, and from French into English by J. Darby in the following year; and Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Abdallah, al-Dimashiqi, al-Ajami (commonly called Ahmad Ibn Arabshah) translated by the Dutch Orientalist Colitis in 1636. In the work of the former, as Sir William Jones remarks, "the Tatarian conqueror is represented as a liberal, benevolent and illustrious prince", in that of the latter he is "deformed and impious, of a low birth and detestable principles." But the favourable account was written under the personal supervision of Timur's grandson, Ibrahim, while the other was the production of his direst enemy. Among less reputed biographies or materials for biography may be mentioned a second Zafarnameh, by Nizam al-Din Shami, stated to be the earliest known history of Timur, and the only one written in his lifetime. The Tuzuk-i timuri or Malfuzat-i timuri, supposedly Timur's own autobiography, is actually a later fabrication. More recent biographies include Justin Marozzi's Tamerlane: Sword of Islam, Conqueror of the World (2006)[90] and Roy Stier's Tamerlane: The Ultimate Warrior (1998).

      412 Seiten, 8, braunes Ldr der Zeit mit rotem und grünem Rückenschild ORDENTLICHES EXEMPLAR ohne das vordere fliegende Blatt mit wenigen handschriftlichen Anmerkungen, lediglich der Einband etwas berieben (EINZELBAND, 2. von 2 Bänden). Paul Thiry dHolbach (* 8. Dezember 1723 in Edesheim bei Landau 21. Januar 1789 in Paris) war ein Philosoph der französischen Aufklärung, der vor allem für seine religionskritischen und atheistischen Thesen bekannt ist. Sein Geburtsname lautet Paul Heinrich Dietrich Holbach. Berühmtheit erlangte sein Buch System der Natur, das er 1770 unter dem Namen des zu der Zeit bereits seit zehn Jahren verstorbenen Jean-Baptiste de Mirabaud veröffentlichte. In diesem Werk trat er ausdrücklich für den Atheismus ein und betrachtete die Natur als materialistisch-deterministisch wirkende Kette von Prozessen. Holbachs Pariser Haus war ein Treffpunkt und ein wichtiges Zentrum des Gedankenaustauschs unter den Aufklärungsphilosophen.

        Summa Tripartiti, 125 ff.

      1723 - Eighteenth-Century Manuscript on the Constitutional Law of Hungary [Manuscript]. [Kingdom of Hungary]. [Summa Tripartiti]. [N.p, c. 1723]. [125] ff. Octavo (8" x 6-1/4"). Contemporary three-quarter vellum over patterned paper-covered boards. Moderate rubbing with wear to extremities, scuffing to boards, corners bumped, some chipping to spine ends. Light toning, text in Latin, written in a fine secretarial hand, ownership inscription (of Ignatius Modrovich, "Advocati," dated 1811) to front free endpaper. * Free of cross-outs or other signs of revision, and with a detailed alphabetical table of contents, this appears to be a fair-copy of an outline of the Hungarian Tripartitum. Compiled in 1514 by Istvan Werboczy [c.1465-1541], a Hungarian jurist and statesman, this collection of early customary laws, though never incorporated formally, was regarded as the second pillar of the Hungarian constitution. It was a de facto law-book of Hungary until 1848. According to the doctrine of the Holy Crown, which appeared in the Tripartitum, the king and the legally equal noblemen formulated the "corpse of the Holy Crown," which symbolized the Hungarian state.

I, p. 222 (the only other copy of this edition we could trace); Thieme- Becker IV, pp. 125-6; not in STCN . Third (?) edition of a famous model drawing book by Abraham Bloemaert (1564-1651), a very influential and prolific Dutch Mannerist painter, print maker, and art teacher. After a journey to France, he went to Amsterdam in 1591 and three years later he seetled finely in Utrecht where he founded the Guild of St Luke. The plates are accompanied by two pages of text in French and Dutch and intended for (art-)students, however this leaf is not recorded in the copy of the library of the Rijksmuseum.This series of plates was firstly published under the title 'Nieut teeckenboeck inhoudende alle de principaelste fondamenten om te leeren teeckenen (Amsterdam, F. de Wit, ca. 1700) and later by Hendrick Bosch in 1723. Both editions contain an engraved title and 23 plates. The title is after a drawing by Bloemaert, the 23 other plates are after A. Carracci's drawings and partly originally engraved by L. Ciamberlano (1586-1641). Some of these plates were also published in Ciamberlano's 'Fondamento del latre sic desgenia ... Fondamenten der Teyckenkonst ... (Amsterdam, C.J. Visscher 1651).For his numerous pupils Bloemaert, assisted by his sons, published in about 1650 an very extensive drawing book, Artis Apellae liber, which became very famous and was republished, selected from and copied after for centuries. At the hand of these models Bloemaert taught gifted pupils like Hendrik ter Brugghen, Gerard van Honthorst, Andries and Jan Both, Dirk Hals, Hendrik de Keyser, and Paulus Moreelse with whom he founded a Drawing Academy in Utrecht. His son Frederik Bloemaert often engraved after his father's drawings, and so did Hendrik Goltzius, Jan Saenredam, Jacob Matham, and others. His model book was originally based on the idea that the art of drawing could be learned by imitating the good example. Bloemaert also believed that the apprentice would be able to achieve a good representation of the human figure by first learning to draw the individual parts of the human body from his book. An early nineteenth/century edition of this manual for school boys and students, published under the famous name of Bloemaert, testifying of the broad and pervasive influence this artist still had at the time. Good copy, with ownership's entry in ink in ms. on inside front cover: 'B. de Langhe'.- (Binding dam. & re/backed; some water stains, first plate soiled and stained)..

They verified and corrected the latitude and longitude of many regional maps in the atlas with astronomical observations. The older material was revised with the addition of many new place names. In 1760, Didier Robert de Vaugondy was appointed geographer to Louis XV.Gilles and Didier Robert De Vaugondy produced their maps and terrestrial globes working together as father and son. Globes of a variety of sizes were made by gluing copperplate-printed gores on a plaster-finished papier-mache core, a complicated and expensive manufacturing process, employing several specialists. In some cases it is uncertain whether Gilles or Didier made a given map. Gilles often signed maps as M.Robert, while Didier commonly signed his maps as "Robert de Vaugondy", or added "fils" or "filio" after his name.The Robert de Vaugondys were descended from the Nicolas Sanson family through Sanson's grandson, Pierre Moulard-Sanson. From him, they inherited much of Sanson's cartographic material, which they combined with maps and plates acquired after Hubert Jaillot's death in 1712 to form the basis the Atlas Universel.

Manca il nome dell'autore, che è lo stesso editore Fertel (Saint Omer, 1684-ivi, 1752), che, attivo nella sua Saint Omer, affinò progressivamente la propria abilità tipografica con frequenti viaggi in Francia, in Italia e nelle Fiandre che lo portarono ad aggiornarsi costantemente sui nuovi ritrovati dell'arte della stampa.

        Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica

      1723. NEWTON, Isaac. Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica. Amsterdam: Sumptibus Societatis, 1723. Quarto, contemporary full paneled brown calf rebacked and recornered in elaborately gilt-decorated calf, raised bands, red morocco spine label. $15,000.Second Amsterdam edition (the second continental printing), based upon the 1713 second edition, with the addition of the Analysis per Quantitatum Series, Fluxiones, ac Differentias: cum Enumeratione Linearum Tertii Ordinis, in contemporary paneled calf boards.""The Principia is generally described as the greatest work in the history of science. Copernicus, Galileo and Kepler had certainly shown the way; but where they described the phenomena they observed, Newton explained the underlying universal laws… [F]or the first time a single mathematical law could explain the motion of objects on earth as well as the phenomena of the heavens. It was this grand conception that produced a general revolution in human thought, equaled perhaps only by that following Darwin's Origin of Species"" (PMM 161). Three authorized editions of Newton's Principia mathematica were issued during his lifetime, but demand for the work was so great on the Continent that two unauthorized reprints were also published in Amsterdam in 1714 and 1723. ""These Amsterdam reprints were a major undertaking, requiring the cutting of new wood-blocks for the figures and a new setting of type. The second reprint (1723) contains not only four tracts by Newton and W. Jones's 'Praefatio Editoris,' but also extracts from four letters of Newton's. These tracts are: De analysi per aequationes infinitas (first published by Jones in 1711), De quadratura curvarum and Enumeratio linearum tertii ordinis (published with the Opticks in 1704 and the Optice in 1706, but eliminated from the second English edition of the Opticks in 1717/18), and the Methodus differentialis. But this whole collection—the four tracts, the extracts from Newton's letters, and Jones's 'Praefatio'—was merely a reprint, without alteration, of a collection that was first published as a small book in London in 1711. It was reissued separately in Amsterdam in 1723 as well as being included as a supplement to the reprint of the Principia. How curious indeed that Newton's long-cherished plan of publishing De quadratura together with the Principia should have been realized only in this presumably unauthorized Amsterdam reprint of 1723!"" (Cohen, Introduction to Newton's Principia, 257). ""This edition re-set, with the plate and diagrams re-engraved. In the Analysis per Quantitatum Series, head and tail-pieces and woodcut initials are used. One tail-piece used several times has in the oval centre the initials G.W. with the 4 mark"" (Gray, 10). Wallis 12. Extensive notes and underlining to Preface.Interior generally quite clean, expert restoration to contemporary paneled calf boards. An extremely good copy.

      Mit gest. Titelvign. 1 Bl., 69 S. Rückenbroschur. 4. VD18 14491877-001 vgl. Hayn-Got. I, 552 u. Huelke-E. 1248 (beide nur 4. A. 1723). - Die Titelvignette mit einem Hüftbild Cartouches. - Louis Dominique Cartouche (eigentlich Garthausen geb. 1693 in Paris) machte seinem Vater, einem redlichen Weinhändler, bereits in jungen Jahren durch vielfältige Kleinkriminalität schwere Sorgen. Im zarten Alter von 12 jagte er ihn davon, Louis Dominique wurde bald Hauptmann einer normannischen Räuberbande, kehrte nach Paris zurück und versetzte mordend und raubend mit seinen Spießgesellen die Stadt in Angst und Schrecken, war aber bei den einfache Leuten populär, die ihn als eine Art Robin Hood glorifizierten. Von einem Bandenmitglied verraten, die hohe Belohnung des Pariser Magistrats war zu verlocken, wurde Cartouche am 15. Oktober 1721 in einer Schenke gefangen genommen. Nach schwerer Folter erfolgte die Hinrichtung auf der Place de Grève mittels Rädern. - Titelblatt unten etwas fleckig, sonst sehr gutes Exemplar!
