        ACTS OF ASSEMBLY, PASSED IN THE PROVINCE OF MARYLAND, FROM 1692, TO 1715.

      London: Printed by John Baskett, 1723. - xi,[8],183pp. Folio. Early 20th-century three-quarter morocco and cloth, gilt. Title with some internal tears, neatly repaired, title backed. Very faint dampstain to outer edge of text. Very good. A rare early collection of Maryland colonial laws. Like the rare Virginia laws printed by the Royal Printer, Baskett, a few years later, this collection of Maryland laws seems to have been largely unknown to the colonists for whom it was written. Perhaps the laws were not meant for the colonists at all. The Brinley catalogue states: "[Thomas] Bacon, in his preface to his BODY OF MARYLAND LAWS, 1765, says: 'I have seen (some time before I left England in the Year 1745) an Edition printed at London, at Lord Baltimore's Expense, as I have been informed, for the Use of the Board of Trade, with the Latin Charter prefixed: But I could never meet with a Copy of it in this Province, nor can I recollect the date it bears.'" The Brinley copy realized $42 in 1880; the last copy in auction records is 1948. SABIN 45045. BRINLEY SALE 3657.

        Dell’istoria civile del Regno di Napoli libri XL.

      Niccolo Naso, Napoli 1723 - 4to. 4 volumes. Volume I. pp. [24], 534 with engraved portrait of the Holy Roman Emperor Charles VI (to whom the book is dedicated) following the title. Volume II, pp. [8], 575, [1]. Volume III, pp. [8], 566. Volume IV, pp. [8], 502, [42p. index]. Titles printed in red and black. Bound in full period vellum over boards. The vellum is age-toned/soiled and displays areas of rubbing and wear. The boards show some warping due to vellum shrinkage. An 8.5 cm tear in the vellum near the fore-edge to the front cover of volume IV is professionally repaired. Spine labels contain chipping. Interior pages display periodic age-toning, browning, scattered foxing, occasional spots of staining and wear; some pages are uniformly tanned/browned. A couple of small marginal tears are neatly sealed. A 4.5 x 2 cm area in the blank outer margin of p. 177 (vol. II) is patched with early paper. Pietro Giannone (1676-1748) Italian Neapolitan lawyer, scholar and historian. His great work, "Dell’istoria civile del Regno di Napoli" describes the development of civil and legal institutions in the Kingdom of Naples from the fall of the Roman empire to the first decades of the 18th century. Giannone argued for the dominance of civil power over that of the Roman Catholic Church. Publication of the work caused a major controversy, including public demonstrations organized by the Neapolitan clergy. The book was ultimately condemned by the Church and Giannone fled Italy for Austria. The English antiquarian Richard Rawlinson helped introduce Giannone’s book into Britain where it achieved some influence [see Trevor-Roper, "Pietro Giannone and Great Britain" in The Hist. Journ. (Sept. 1996)]. [Gamba 2254; Brunet II, 1584; Graesse III, p. 79]. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Cathecismo romano, traducido en castellano, y mexicano por Manuel Perez

      Mexico: por Francisco de Rivera Calderon Small 4to (20.5 cm; 8"). [14] ff., 248 pp.. 1723 The first edition of this important translation of the standard Catholic catechism. Father Pérez was one of Mexico's leading Nahuatl (i.e., Aztec) scholars of the 18th century, the period of a major rebirth of scholarship in Nahuatl studies; he held the post of professor of Nahuatl at the Royal University in Mexico City. This work was prepared for use among the Indians of Central Mexico, as well as other areas of North America into which Nahuatl had been introduced. The catechism is => not in the accustomed question and answer format, but is composed of sermon-like discussions on the articles of faith and dogma. Additionally, Perez discusses various Biblical issues and teachings of the Fathers of the Church. Provenance: 18th- or early 19th-century ownership note at top of title-page (partially crossed out) of Bachiller Perez Jimenez y Mendoza; bookplate of Frederick Starr, noted 20th-century scholar of Mexican languages and matters indigenous. Original limp vellum; text block almost totally loose in it. Lacking endpapers; worming at inner margins, some repaired. Stains and foxing but minor and only occasional. Withal, a solid, good, and useable copy of this significant work — with pleasant provenance both early and late.

        Botanicon parisiense. Operis majoris prodituri prodromus

      1723 - (12), 131, (1)pp., exemplaire Leyde, Peter Vander, 1723, in-8, (12), 131, (1)pp, exemplaire interfolié de feuillets blancs, plein veau fauve de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs orné et portant une pièce de titre en maroquin noir, tranches rouges, gardes marbrées (restauration du dos et des coins), Première édition, peu courante, de la "Botanicon parisiense" de Vaillant portant de nombreuses notes manuscrites anonymes anciennes en français. "L'Opus major" du botaniste français ne fut publié que posthume, en 1723 (Vaillant décéda l'année précédente), par les soins d'Herman Boerhaave qui en rédigea la préface. Vaillant dénombre et décrit, en les classant par ordre alphabétique, les plantes qui se trouvent aux environs de Paris. Sébastien Vaillant, chirurgien de formation, étudia la botanique sous la direction de Tournefort, au jardin des Plantes. Il en devint sous-administrateur en 1708, puis fut chargé, par Louix XIV, de créer un jardin des drogues. Il fut nommé à l'académie des sciences en 1716. L'originalité de sa démarche scientifique réside dans son effort résolument empirique de ne décrire que les plantes connues de lui-même et dans sa compréhension innovante du mécanisme et de l'importance de la pollinisation, donc de la reproduction sexuée des plantes à fleurs. Ainsi, il s'opposa aux théories de Tournefort, proposa une nouvelle classficiation et peut être considéré comme un des inspirateurs de Linné et de Jussieu. De nombreuses notes manuscrites courent dans les marges du présent exemplaire et sur les feuillets intercalés. On peut distinguer deux mains différentes. La plus ancienne, d'une calligraphie plus lâche et plus grosse, traduit certaines des appellations latines, propose de nouvelles localisations pour quelques plantes décrites ou complète le texte (probablement d'après la seconde édition du "Botanicon", paru en 1727). Voir, par exemple, les notes en regard de la page 2. La seconde main, probablement du XIXe siècle, est d'une écriture plus serrée et plus régulière. L'annotateur localise et complète les informations de Vaillant, mais surtout, il indique, en manchette, la nomenclature proposée par Linné afin de faciliter l'utilisation de ce dictionnaire pour les botanistes modernes qui ignorent la classification ancienne des végétaux. Sur le contre-plat, l'ex-libris imprimé de "G. Archambault". Bel exemplaire, richement annoté, de cette rare édition originale du chef d’œuvre du plus moderne des botanistes français du siècle de Louix XIV. Plesch, p. 445-446 ; DSB, XIII, p. 553-554.

        Fundamenta chymiae dogmaticae & experimentalis

      Nuremberg: Wolfgang Mauritius, 1723. tahl, Georg Ernst (1659-1734). Fundamenta chymiae dogmaticae & experimentalis. . . . 4to. [8], 255, [25]pp. Nuremberg: Johann Ernst Adelbulner for Wolfgang Mauritz, 1723. 198 x 161 mm. Modern half vellum, floral-patterned boards. Light toning, but a very good, crisp copy. First Edition. Stahl was the originator of the phlogiston theory, which dominated chemistry until the end of the eighteenth century. Stahl took the structure of his theory from 17th-century alchemist Johann Joachim Becher, who had stated air, water and earth to be the three elementary principles; water and earth were the basis of all material things, and Becher further subdivided the principle of earth into the three principles of substantiality, combustibility and weight/ductility/volatility. Stahl elaborated from Becher?s ?second earth? a new chemical principle, phlogiston, representing the principle of combustibility that combined with other chemical substances to form compounds. Experimental evidence for the existence of phlogiston came largely from metals and minerals, particularly from the reversible relationship of metals and their calces: when a metal was heated intensely, its phlogiston was driven off and a calx appeared, but when phlogiston was reintroduced to the calx (by heating it with carbon, oil, pitch or other phlogiston-rich materials), the metal reappeared. Air did not combine with phlogiston but received it when it was liberated during combustion; air could absorb only a limited amount of phlogiston, and when that limit was reached, combustion could no longer take place. The flaws in the phlogiston theory are obvious and it did not survive the eighteenth century; however, it served as an important link between older (al)chemical concepts and the new, an attempt to modify the existing intellectual framework in order to account for new experimental observations.

Zt.Das berühmteste der Werke Carpzovs, 1635 erstmals in Wittenberg erschienen. - Benedict Carpzov (der Jüngere) 1595-1666, Jurist, Angehöriger der aus Spanien stammenden Familie Carpezana, die zahlreiche prominente Juristen und Theologen hervorgebracht hatte, verfasste das vorl. Werk als er das Richteramt am Leipziger Schöppenstuhl bekleidete. Es fand nicht nur in Sachsen, sondern auch außerhalb bei den Gerichten (für mehr als 100 Jahre) `ein fast gesetzmäßiges Ansehen` (ADB IV, 14). Es stellt das materielle Strafrecht und das Strafprozessrecht vom Anfang des 17. Jahrhunderts dar und veränderte das deutsche Strafrecht. Laut Ph. Andr. Oldenburger soll B. Carpzov über 20.000 Todesurteile, insbesondere in Hexenprozessen veranlaßt haben. Nach Carpzov war Schädigung durch Zauberei gar nicht einmal erforderlich, selbst Heilzauber war aufgrund des unterstellten Teufelsbundes todeswürdig. Die Luftfahrt der Hexen zum Blocksberg, der Teufelspakt und die Teufelsbuhlschaft waren für den sächsischen Kriminalisten bewiesene `grande delicta` woran kein vernünftiger Mensch mehr zweifeln könne. Nach diesem großen Rechtswissenschafter war es schon strafbar, daran nicht zu glauben, denn das war Ketzerei. Carpzov stand im 17. Jahrhundert auch synonym für eine abermalige Verschärfung des Hexenprozesses (gegen die einige wenige deutsche Juristen wie Justus Oldenkop den Mut hatten aufzutreten). Auf Wikipedia wird Carpzov unter `Hexentheoretiker` gereiht. Versand D: 4,00 EUR Juridica u. Staatswissenschaften

        Atlas of the Modern World Titled:] Atlas Manualis Scholasticus et Itinerarius Complectens Novae Geographiae Tabulas LI.

      Nürnberg 1723 - Nürnberg: Johann Christoph Weigel, [1723]. Revised edition with an updated index and title. Folio (37x25 cm). With a copper engraved title (index verso), double-page copper engraved frontispiece by J. G. Berckmüller, and fifty-one original hand coloured copper engraved maps on fifty (forty-nine double-page & one folding) leaves. Original brown limp full sheep with blind stamped title on spine. Covers mildly rubbed, titled page with a couple marginal tears (with old repairs), Frontispiece slightly shaved at top at, a few maps with marginal tears and old repairs. However the atlas overall in very good and very original condition, the maps are strong impressions and generally clean with attractive unfaded original hand colouring. The fifty-one very decorative maps include: A World map, Europe, Portugal, Spain, France, Lorraine, Great Britain, England, Scotland, Ireland, Netherlands(3), Germany and fifteen maps of German states, Switzerland, Italy and five maps of Italian states, Scandinavia, Denmark, Sweden, Poland, Muscovy, Danube course, Hungary (two maps together), Greece (2), Asia, Ottoman Empire, Holy Land, Africa & America. The maps are based on designs by Homann, Moll and Goos and are decorated with very attractive cartouches. The historian Koehler and engraver and publisher Weigel collaborated on a number of atlases, this probably being the most elaborate. Johann David Kohler was a professor of logic and history at universities in Altdorf and later Göttingen and served briefly as university librarian at Altdorf. (Tooley K-P p.49). Johann Christoph Weigel (1654-1725), was a German engraver, illustrator and publisher (Tooley Q-Z p. 367); Phillips 569. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Acts of Assembly, Passed in the Province of Maryland, from 1692, to 1715

      Printed by John Baskett, London 1723 - xi,[8],183pp. Early 20th-century three-quarter morocco and cloth, gilt. Titlepage neatly detached, with a small embossed library blind-stamp and two small holes in upper margin, not affecting text, faint dampstain through most of text. A rare early collection of Maryland colonial laws Like the rare Virginia laws printed by the Royal Printer, Baskett, a few years later, this collection of Maryland laws seems to have been largely unknown to the colonists for whom it was written. Perhaps the laws were not meant for the colonists at all. The Brinley catalogue states: "[Thomas] Bacon, in his preface to his Body of Maryland Laws , 1765, says: 'I have seen (some time before I left England in the Year 1745) an Edition printed at London, at Lord Baltimore's Expense, as I have been informed, for the Use of the Board of Trade, with the Latin Charter prefixed: But I could never meet with a Copy of it in this Province, nor can I recollect the date it bears.'" The Brinley copy realized $42 in 1880; the last copy in auction records is 1948. Brinley Sale 3657, Sabin 45045. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Ebrietatis Encomium: Or, The Praise Of Drunkenness; Wherein Is authentically, and most evidently proved, the Necessity of frequently Getting Drunk; and, that the Practice of getting Drunk is most Antient... By Boniface Oinophilus de Monte Fiascone

      E. Curl, 1723, HARDCOVER, Book Condition: USED, VERY GOOD. First edition. An English translation of the "Eloge de l'yvresse" by A. H. de Sallengre, attributed to Robert Samber. A good tight library binding. 12mo. 17.6cm x 11.5cm x 1.7cm. [12pp.]/pp.151. Grey-green buckram, with paper title label to both front board and spine:"Ebrietatis Encomium." Later endpapers. Printed library label to verso of the front board: "District Punjab, Grand Lodge, Library. * Browned and soiled endpapers. Engraved frontis with title: "Vivimus dum Bibimus." (While we live, let us live). Printe title-page with purple library stamp: "District Grand Lodge Library. Punjab. 1890". Title and frontis lightly soiled. Otherwise, clean English text throughout, just the odd small blemish. The last leaf has a black ink-stain which covers 20% of the text, and touches a few words on the last few leaves. Still a well preserved copy of a scarce book. Referenced by: ESTC T72868 ** "...In the treatise, Ebrietatis Encomium or the Praise of Drunkenness (1723), chapter fifteen is dedicated to "Free masons and other Learned Men that used to get Drunk". Opponents of the craft suggested that the Masons had derived their epiphet "free" from their cult of imbibing. One comic couplet traces the semantics of "free" to a Bacchanalian source: 'Tis Wine, ye Masons, makes you free, Bacchus the father is of Liberty." - See Robert Burns, The Freemasons' Poet Laureate by Marie Roberts, 1986 - Full title reads: "Ebrietatis Encomium: Or, The Praise Of Drunkenness; Wherein Is authentically, and most evidently proved, the Necessity of frequently Getting Drunk; and, that the Practice of getting Drunk is most Antient, Primitive, and catholic. Confirmed By the Example of heathens, Turks, Infidels, Primitive Christians, Saints, Popes, Bishops, Doctors, Philosophers, Poets, Free Masons, and other Men of Learning in all ages.

Die englische Ausgabe des Grundwerkes, nach dem Manuskript übersetzt, erschien 4 Jahre vor der französischen Originalausgabe. \"La Mottraye [1674-1743] reiste über mehrere Jahrzehnte (von 1696 bis 1725) durch Europa, Asien und Nordafrika. Schwerpunkte seiner Reisebeschreibung sind Italien, Deutschland, Skandinavien, das Osmanische Reich und das nördliche Schwarzmeergebiet.\" (Griep-Luber). Mit Karten und Plänen sowie schönen Tafeln, teils Frühwerke von William Hogarth, u.a. von griechischen und türkischen Volksfesten und -bräuchen, sowie erlesenen orientalischen Kunstschätzen. Die Bände 1 und 2 von bemerkenswerter Provenienz: Das Wappensupralibros trägt den Wahlspruch \"Roi ne suis, ne Prince, ne Duc, ne Comte aussi, je suis le Sire de Coucy\". Die Familie de Coucy aus der Picardie wurde einigermaßen populär durch das Buch von Barbara Tuchman \"Der ferne Spiegel\", in dem sie die Geschichte des 14. Jahrhunderts entlang der Biographie Ihres Protagonisten Enguerrand de Coucy VII. (1340-1397) erzählt. - Komplizierte Tafelkollation, nach Schiötz (mit der besten verfügbaren Kollation) häufig \"verket er ukomplette plansjer\".

Blackmer 946 und Griep-Luber 764 (beide nur Band 1-2 in franz. Ausg.). - Scarce first edition of La Motrayes main work in 2 vols, translated from French manuscript and published 4 years earlier than the common French edition. Collating against Schiötz (who is ignorant of pl. 36B) we have 4 folding maps and 43 (of 45, lacking 26B and 30) engr. plates, mostly folding or double-leaf. \"The plates are of particular insterest and include many signed by Hogarth, which form part of his early work.\" (Blackmer). Lacking also 4 leaves subscribers` list. Added is the quite rare supplement (1732) in English and French with an account of La Motraye`s travels in Eastern and Northern Europe with 7 (of 9) engr. plates amd maps (lacking an engraved and a half-title and 2 plates). Vol. 1 and 2 of important provenience: The family De Coucy became quite popular through \"A Distant Mirror\" by Barbara Tuchman. Tuchman tells the story of the 14th century along the biography of Enguerrand de Coucy VII. - A few tears to folding plates. 2 corners of main work restored, else a clean and broad-margined copy in contemp. calf, worn, rebacked.

Edition publiée en secret et clandestinement à Rouen par le libraire Viret et par les soins de Thieriot, secrétaire et ami de Voltaire, ce dernier n'ayant pas eu l'autorisation de faire imprimer son poème. Il le rédigea lors d'un séjour à Quevillon, au château de la Rivière Bourdet appartenant à M. Gilles Henri de Bernières, qui logeait Voltaire à Paris dans son hôtel particulier. Sensible aux charmes de Madame de Bernières, Voltaire profita de son agréable séjour en bord de Seine pour écrire sa tragédie Marianne et mettre la dernière main à sa Henriade. C'est Madame de Bernières qui emmena à Paris, dans son carrosse, les premiers exemplaires imprimés. Le Petit; Cioranescu 66862, 66863, 66864; Bengesco n° 360. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Printed ownership label affixed to front pastedown. Overall very good. In a half morocco and cloth box. The earliest obtainable version of the Massachusetts-Bay colony laws, since the 17th-century versions are virtually unobtainable today. Second issue, with the reprinting notice on the verso of the titlepage, with the CHARTER... preceding the ACTS... and the second edition of THE TABLE containing pagination through 1721 (also bound in prior to the ACTS... titlepage). All of the session laws which followed through 1723 are present (they are continuously paginated, although issued periodically). This version of the laws would have been made obsolete by the 1726 version of the laws, when the session law numbering would have begun all over again. A nice early colonial legal volume, in contemporary condition.

        [MANUSCRIPT AGREEMENT BETWEEN HANNAH PENN AND LORD BALTIMORE, SIGNED BY BOTH PARTIES, REGARDING THE BOUNDARY DISPUTE BETWEEN PENNSYLVANIA AND MARYLAND]

      London, 1723. Folio. Old fold lines. Minor soiling. Very good plus. In a half morocco box. A highly important original manuscript agreement between Hannah Penn and Lord Baltimore, according a brief peace in the dispute over the boundary line between the colonies of Pennsylvania and Maryland. The document is signed by Mrs. Penn; Charles Calvert, Fifth Lord Baltimore; Penn's agent, James Logan; and various witnesses and counsel for both sides. This document records one of the attempts to settle the long-standing dispute, and was intended to provide stability in the area for a period of eighteen months, pending a permanent solution between the Penns and the Lords Baltimore. "Hannah Penn had inherited the Pennsylvania proprietorship upon her husband's death in 1718, and proceeded to mortgage it to Joshua Gee, 'Merchant,' and Henry Gouldney, 'Linnendraper' (whose name is mis-spelled 'Goldney' in the text). Despite the increasing population in the disputed colonial territories, little profit was forthcoming, either to Hannah and her mortgages or to Charles Lord Baltimore, who had taken over the Maryland proprietorship upon the death of the Fourth Lord Baltimore: 'while settlers agreed to purchase lands in the disputed areas, they would not pay the proprietors for them until the boundaries were determined' (Wainwright [T], pp.254-255)" - Chew. As with any contract, several original manuscript copies of this document were produced; the copy sold in the Chew sale at Christie's in 1982 is identical to the copy offered here. The document reads: "Whereas there are disputes depending between the respective proprietors of the provinces of Maryland and Pensilvania touching the limits or boundarys of the sd. provinces where they are contiguous to each other. And whereas both parties are at this time sincerely inclined to enter into a treaty in order to take such methods as may be advisable for the final determining ye sd. controversy by agreeing upon such lines or other marks of direction to be settled as may remain for a perpetual boundary between ye two provinces. "It is therefore mutually agreed between the Right Honble. Charles Lord Baltemore proprietor and governour of Maryland & Hannah Penn widow and executrix of Wm. Penn Esq. late proprietor & governour of Pensilvania. And Joshua Gee of London, Merchant, and Henry Goldney of London, Linnendraper, in behalf of themselves & the mortgagees of the province of Pensilvania that for avoiding of all manner of contention or differences between the inhabitants of the sd. provinces, no person or persons shall be disturbed or molested in their possessions on either side, nor any lands be surveyed, taken up, or granted in either of the sd. provinces near the boundary, which have been claimed or pretended to on either side. "This agreement to continue for ye space of eightteen [sic] months from the date hereof. In which time tis hoped the boundarys will be determined and settled. And it is mutually agreed on by the said partys, that proclamations be issued out in the said provinces signifying this agreement for the better, quieting the people. And the Lieutenant Governours and other proper officers of the respective provinces for the time being are directed and enjoyned to conform themselves agreeable hereunto; and to issue out proclamations accordingly upon the receipt hereof. In witness whereof the partyes above named have hereunto set their hands this 17th day of February 1723." It is signed by "Baltemore," J. Clement, Charles Lowe, James Logan, Hannah Penn, Joshua Gee, and Henry Gouldney. Though this agreement may have provided a temporary respite for the issue, it did not, in the end, move the two parties any further toward a permanent accord. From the time of William Penn's original grant of Pennsylvania in 1682, he was at loggerheads with the Lords Baltimore over the boundary lines between the colonies. The present document was one of the sporadic efforts to resolve the problem before 1732, when both sides put forward maps of their own as guides. Baltimore insisted on the use of his map, and the Penns, who were under great money pressure and eager for an agreement, acceded, as they did to a number of Baltimore's demands. The settlement was unpopular in Maryland, when it finally reached America in 1733, and Lord Baltimore soon discovered another problem: his map was inaccurate, and the mislocation of Cape Henelopen gave the Penns more land than he had thought. As a result, he tried to nullify the agreement, which led to a lawsuit in Chancery Court in London, charging fraud. The Penns, naturally, replied that it was based on Baltimore's map, not theirs. From this lawsuit, which was wrangled over for the next sixteen years, came a string of printed documents, all now very rare, in which the parties set out their arguments. Finally, in 1750 the Penns won the case, with costs, and the surveying could again proceed. A number of abortive attempts were made to survey the boundary, before the two sides finally employed Mason and Dixon to make the final survey in 1763-68. The present manuscript is thus one of the first documents in the protracted negotiations over the boundary which were only finally resolved forty-five years later. A wonderful and important piece of this long-running dispute, vital to the history of both Maryland and Pennsylvania.
