        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

      London: Printed for E. Curl, Against Catherine Street, In The Strand, 1723. [Price Five Shillings.] 0. 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.

        An inquiry into the nature and causes of the wealth of nations. 3 vols. 7th edition. London, A. Strahan and T. Cadell, 1793.

      "Full leather. Spine of vol. 2 broken, other spines weak, cover edges and corners worn. 8°: [vol 1] A6 B-2I8 2K2, pag.: [10] 1-499; [vol 2] A4 B-2K8 2L6 , pag.: [6] 1-518 [6]; [vol 3] A4 B-2K8 2L2, pag.: [6] 1-465 [50]. Bookblock of all volumes in good condition. Except for the traces of use a good copy. The Scottish economist Adam Smith (1723-1790) was the most influential thinker in the history of capitalist economics. The publication of his book 'An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations' in 1776 established him as the single most influential figure in the development of modern economic theory. He describes the workings of a market economy, the division of labor in production, the nature of wealth in relation to money, the inability of governments to manage economies, and the difference between productive and nonproductive labor. Smith's standardwork was reprinted many times in the eightteenth and nineteenth centuries and also in more recent times his work is being published (even a full text electronic edition is available on the internet). The present set is a rare, early edition, printed in London in 1793, only few years after Smith's death. B0062. Economy; Philosophy.".

Mit 4 gestochenen Faltkarten und 43 (statt 45, inklusive 2 Frontispizen) meist gefalteten Kupfertafeln. Folio, 35,2 x 23,4 cm. UND: (Supplement und:) Voyages en Anglois et en Francois en divers provinces et places de la Prusse Ducale et Royale, de la Russie, de la Pologne &c. La Haye, Adrien Moetjens, 1732. Mit 7 (statt 9 und ohne den gestochenen Titel; 1 gefaltete) Kupfertafeln und Karten. Groß-Quart, 30,7 x 21 cm. Zusammen 3 Bände.

      1723 - 1723 und 1732. 4 (statt 8) Blatt, 440 Seiten; 432 S. 71 S.; 3 (statt 4) Blatt, 480 S. Ganzleder der Zeit mit Rückenvergoldung, Band 1 und 2 mit goldgeprägtem Wappensupralibros. (Band 1-2 Ecken und Rücken wohl im 19. Jahrhundert sauber restauriert, berieben und bestoßen, ExLibris für John W. de Kay, Falttafeln teilweise etwas eingerissen, 1 doppelblattgroße Tafel mit Bugeinriss, 2 Textblätter mit je 1 angesetzten Ecke, .sonst sauber und breitrandig. Band 3 hinteres Gelenk etwas eingerissen, kleines Lederloch auf vorderem Deckel, berieben und bestoßen, etwas knapprandig, Titel mit Namensausschnitt, vereinzelt kleiner Feuchtigkeitsrand, im Ganzen aber recht gut erhalten). - Erste Ausgaben des zweibändigen Grundwerkes sowie des zweisprachigen Supplementbandes zu den englischen und französischen Ausgaben, sehr selten. 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". Vorhanden in Band 1 und 2 die Karten A-D und die numerierten Tafeln 1-39 (Tafel 5 nn., inkl. zweimal Nr. 6, 7&7A, 17A&B, 26A, 33/1&2, 36&36B - letztere Schiötz unbekannt) ohne Nummern 26 B und 30. Zu Beginn von Bd. 1 fehlen 4 Blatt Subskribenten. Im Supplement fehlen außer dem gestochenen Titel vermutlich 1 Zwischentitel vor Textbeginn sowie die num. Tafeln 3 & 4. - Cox I, 77-78; Paulitschke 686 (nur Bd. 1-2); Schiötz 567 a&d; Estreicher XXII, 600 f. und Lipperheide Cl 6-7 (beide nur Band 3 wie vorliegend und franz. Ausg. für Bd. 1-2); vgl. 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. The supplementary vol. somewhat narrow-margined, slightly browned, inobtrusive water-staining to few quires, inscription cut out from title. This volume bound in contemp. calf, slighty rubbed. Together 3 vols. 5000 Gramm. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Mahometism fully explained: ... Written in Spanish and Arabick, in the year M.DC.III for the instruction of the Moriscoes in Spain ... Translated from the original manuscript, and illustrated with large explanatory notes by Mr. Morgan.

      London, W. Mears (vol. 1); the author (vol. 2), 1723-1725.. 2 volumes. 8vo. XXVI, (6), 390; XVI, LXXXIV, 366, (2) pp. With 2 folding plates (including frontispiece) and a folding letterpress genealogical table. Further with woodcut head- and tailpieces and factotums (woodcut and built up from cast fleurons). Contemporary blind-tooled calf, each board in a panel design made with 2 rolls, with a cornerpiece at each corner, with the central and outer parts sprinkled and the area between not. Rebacked.. A thorough account of Islam and the life of the prophet Muhammad, based on a 1603 manuscript by the Morisco poet Muhammad Rabadan, translated and annotated by Joseph Morgan. The manuscript, written in a combination of Spanish and Aljamiado, was meant for the instruction of Moriscos, Muslims in parts of Al-Andalus (Spain) who were forced to convert to Christianity. They were expelled from Spain in the early 17th century. The text of the manuscript is followed by an account of the Moriscos by Joseph Morgan, which makes it particularly valuable. He quotes several contemporary sources, including a 1615 letter by al-Karim ibn Ali Perez, an expelled Morisco, who castigates the Spanish for their barbarous treatment of Muslims. The plates show Muslims in prayer and the Kaaba in Mecca. - Each title-page with owner's name, "S.M. Harrison". Slightly browned, some stains, bindings slightly worn and neatly rebacked. An important source for the history of the Moriscos. - ESTC T92870. Cf. Matar, Europe through Arab eyes, p. 14. For Morgan: Goodwin, "Morgan, Joseph (fl. 1707-1739)", in: ODNB (online ed.).

        Versuch einer gründlichen Erläuterung der merckwürdigsten Begebenheiten in der Natur, wodurch man zur innersten Erkenntnis derselben geführet wird.

      (Johann Adam Spörl),, Halle 1723 - Erstes bis viertes Stück in 1 Bd. Halle (Johann Adam Spörl), 1723. 8 Bl., 334, 32 S. mit gestochenem Frontispiz (eine Baustelle darstellend) sowie 10 Textkupfer / Vignetten. HPrgt der Zeit. Einband leicht berieben, vorderes Gelenk leicht gelockert, feines Ex. EA dieses Hauptwerks des Schülers von Christian Wolff. Thümmig wurde am 12. Mai 1697 zu Helmbrechts als Sohn des dortigen Pfarrers und nachmaligen Subdiakonus in Culmbach Georg Peter Thümmig geboren. Auf dem Lyceum zu Culmbach und der Fürstenschule zu Heilsbronn vorgebildet, begab er sich 1717 nach Halle, um bei Wolff, dessen philosophisches System ihn lebhaft anzog, persönlich zu hören. Wolff nahm in sehr wohlwollend auf, machte ihn zu seinem Famulus und suchte ihn in jeder Weise zu fördern. Nachdem Thümmig 1721 die Magisterwürde erworben hatte, begann er in Halle Vorlesungen zu halten, und zwar unter so großem Beifall, daß er schon zwei Jahre darauf, trotz der Opposition von Wolff’s Gegnern, zum ordentlichen Professor der Philosophie ernannt wurde. Als nun aber 1723, infolge der fortgesetzten Machinationen Joachim Lange’s und anderer Widersacher, Christian Wols die bekannte geharnischte Cabinetsordre erhielt, die ihn seines Lehramts entsetzte und ihm binnen achtundvierzig Stunden den preu- . ßischen Staat zu räumen befahl, floh Thümmig in Begleitung seines Meisters nach Marburg. Auf Wolff’s dringende Empfehlung wurde er 1724 als Professor der Philosophie am Collegium Carolinum zu Cassel angestellt. Thümmig starb, erst dreißig Jahre alt, zu Cassel am 15. April 1728. Diese Erstausgabe von allergrößter Seltenheit. Einband leicht berieben, vorderes Gelenk leicht gelockert, feines Ex. [Attributes: First Edition]

Vol. III: Tostado progresivo a partir de la p. 305, que se inicia en la esquina inferior izquierda y va ascendiendo lentamente por el margen derecho página a página hasta el final del volumen.- Proc.: Diminuto exlibris de tampón de la biblioteca de Michael Mathes, dos M cruzadas dentro de un círculo, en los versos de las portadas.- // [Monarchia indiana]: Aunque suele citarse como aparecida en 1723, porque es la fecha que figura cincelada en las portadas grabadas de sus tres volúmenes, la obra no salió a la luz hasta 1725, pese a que su impresión estuviera ya planificada desde 1720. Así, la licencia con privilegio es de enero de 1721. La portada debió encargarse a finales de 1722 o principios de 1723, esculpiéndose el grabado ese año, pero la composición del texto no se terminó hasta 1724, obteniéndose la tasa en el mes de octubre. A finales de noviembre se cerró la fe de erratas y, por fin, en enero de 1725, pudo fecharse el proemio. Siendo un libro orientado a facilitar la mayor cantidad de información, concebido sin ningún tipo de alarde iconográfico, Nicolás Rodríguez decidió sin embargo que las portadas fuesen grabadas, encomendando su realización al monje franciscano Matías Irala Yuso, que diseñó un retablo presidido por los leones de Castilla, coronado por las efigies de san Ignacio y san Francisco y adornado con los escudos y estandartes de los jesuitas y los franciscanos, a través del cual puede verse la escena de un padre franciscano exponiendo doctrina desde el escenario de un aula. La única ilustración gráfica al contenido, el mapa calcográfico del primer volumen, inserto delante del Libro primero, reproduce y amplía la información contenida en el mapa Descripción de las Yndias Ocidentales, conocido como Mapa general de Indias, que Antonio de Herrera había publicado en su Descripción de las Indias Ocidentales de Madrid, Juan Flamenco, 1601. Descripción mayor de México y del suroeste de Estados Unidos, el primer volumen de la obra da cuenta de los diferentes pueblos que lo habitaron, sus costumbres y gobierno, así como su historia, hasta 1606, a lo que se añaden informaciones sobre Japón, Filipinas y las Islas Salomon. El segundo volumen, que se centra en la religión de las diferentes culturas indias y la actividad misionera, recoge también una historia natural de México y California. Finalmente, el tercer volumen se ocupa de la actividad de los franciscanos no solo en Centro América y el sur de Norte América, sino también en las Indias orientales, complementando el conjunto con las biografías de franciscanos ilustres y la actividad de la Inquisición.- Refs.: Brunet, V, 886; Graesse, VII, 174; Medina, BHA, 2491(no menciona el mapa); Palau, 335033 y 335034 (no menciona el mapa); Sabin, 96212; Salvá, II, 3412.

      Paris: L'Auteur... Boivin. 1723. Folio. Disbound. 1f. (highly attractive title by Roussel within elaborate engraved border incorporating numerous musical instruments), [i] (dedication), 2-41, [i] (Privilege General, dated July 21, 1723) pp. Engraved. Notated on two staves: violin and figured bass. Contains 8 sonatas. With the composer's signature ("F. Bouvard"), most probably autograph, in ink to lower left corner of p. 2. From the André Meyer collection, with handstamp to verso of upper wrapper: "Provenant de la collection musicale d'André Meyer Décédé en Mai 1974 F. Meyer Octobre 84." Browned throughout; central horizontal crease; bumped at upper inner corners; unevenly trimmed; title frayed at edges and somewhat soiled; final leaf slightly soiled. . First (and only) Edition. Very rare. RISM BB4027a (2 copies only, at the Bibliothèque nationale, Paris and the Toulouse conservatoire). Lesure p. 74. "It has been suggested that there were two Bouvards, one of them a count of St. John Lateran, composer of the violin sonatas, and the other an ordinary maître de musique, responsible for the other [mostly dramatic] works, but inferences to be drawn from the publications themselves contradict this. In 1723 Bouvard published in Paris his Premier livre de sonates à violon seule et la basse continue, and after that date he seems to have concentrated on his activities as a teacher and freelance composer, with considerable success to judge from the number of editions and some of their dedications... Bouvard?'s large body of work is notable for its diversity and the sudden breaks in his composing activity. His career at the Opéra, beginning brilliantly with Médus in 1702, came to an end in 1706 with the failure of Cassandre, and his first book of violin sonatas was never followed by a second."

        Premier Livre de Sonates a Violon Seul et la Basse Continüe dédiées a Monsieur de Francine... Gravés Par Mlle. Louise Roußel Prix en blanc 7 [livre]... Avec Privilege du Roy. [Score]

      Paris: L'Auteur... Boivin. 1723. Folio. Disbound. 1f. (highly attractive title by Roussel within elaborate engraved border incorporating numerous musical instruments), [i] (dedication), 2-41, [i] (Privilege General, dated July 21, 1723) pp. Engraved. Notated on two staves: violin and figured bass. Contains 8 sonatas. With the composer's signature ("F. Bouvard"), most probably autograph, in ink to lower left corner of p. 2. From the André Meyer collection, with handstamp to verso of upper wrapper: "Provenant de la collection musicale d'André Meyer Décédé en Mai 1974 F. Meyer Octobre 84." Browned throughout; central horizontal crease; bumped at upper inner corners; unevenly trimmed; title frayed at edges and somewhat soiled; final leaf slightly soiled. . First (and only) Edition. Very rare. RISM BB4027a (2 copies only, at the Bibliothèque nationale, Paris and the Toulouse conservatoire). Lesure p. 74. "It has been suggested that there were two Bouvards, one of them a count of St. John Lateran, composer of the violin sonatas, and the other an ordinary maître de musique, responsible for the other [mostly dramatic] works, but inferences to be drawn from the publications themselves contradict this. In 1723 Bouvard published in Paris his Premier livre de sonates à violon seule et la basse continue, and after that date he seems to have concentrated on his activities as a teacher and freelance composer, with considerable success to judge from the number of editions and some of their dedications... BouvardÂ’s large body of work is notable for its diversity and the sudden breaks in his composing activity. His career at the Opéra, beginning brilliantly with Médus in 1702, came to an end in 1706 with the failure of Cassandre, and his first book of violin sonatas was never followed by a second." Robert Fajon in Grove Music Online.

Evènements dont l'auteur fut témoin pendant son séjour dans ses contrées : "Aucun voyageur, avant l'auteur n'avait visité le Cachemire" (Boucher de la Richarderie V, p. 66 - Brunet I, p. 802).  Bernier s'embarque en 1656 pour l'Orient ; il demeure de longues années auprès d'Aurangzeb, Grand Moghol de l'Inde, dont il est devenu le médecin. Il ne rentrera en France qu'en 1669 et publiera l'Histoire de la dernière révolution du Grand Mogol(1670-1671), dont l'intérêt documentaire est considérable et qui obtient un grand succès (le livre sera réédité sous le titre de Voyages de François Bernier contenant la description des États du Grand Mogol, de l'Hindoustan, du royaume de Kachemire...).

Dos à cinq nerfs orné de caissons et fleurons dorés ainsi que d'une pièce de titre de maroquin rouge.Toutes tranches mouchetées rouges.  Feuillets de la première partie intégralement brunis, en raison d'un papier plus médiocre que le reste du volume. Fameuse édition de la collection des poètes français éditée par Coustelier. Les pièces se suivent successivement dans cet ordre : Les repues franches. Le franc archier de Baignollet.

Villon, ainsi intitulé sans le consentement de l"auteur, comme il le dit au second livre". Selon l'avis "aux lecteurs" la première partie, (c'est à dire dans notre édition la deuxième et la troisième), a été éditée suivant l"édition de Clément Marot, avec cette différence que l'on a mis dans les marges les diverses leçons tirées des editions antérieures à celle de Marot. Les notes de bas de page marquées par des lettres sont de Clément Marot, celles marquées par des chiffres sont d'une autre main.
