        Oeuvres Diverses de Mr Rousseau

      London - Jacob Tonson and Jean Watts, 1723 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. The works of Jean-Baptiste Rousseau. First edition. Complete in two volumes. With beautifully decorative head and tail pieces throughout both volumes, and an engraved frontispiece to volume I. Jean-Baptiste Rousseau (6 April 1671 17 March 1741) was a French poet. He was born in Paris, the son of a shoemaker, and was well educated. As a young man, he gained favour with Boileau, who encouraged him to write. He went to London as an attache with the French diplomat Tallard, and, in days when literature still led to high position, seemed likely to achieve success. His poems, as yet printed only singly or in manuscript, acquired him a great reputation, due to the dearth of genuine lyrical poetry between Jean Racine and Andre de Chenier. In 1701 he was made a member of the Academie des inscriptions. Few writers were so frequently reprinted during the 18th century. With bookplate of Chillingham Castle to pastedowns and copperplate inscription to front free endpaper of volume II; The Earl of Tankerville, his Lordship's book, 1736. Condition: In calf bindings. Externally, rather worn; all boards held by cords only. Internally, front blank of volume I and rear free endpaper of volume II are detached, but textblocks complete andotherwise generally firmly bound. Small numbered label to both front free endpapers. Generally bright and clean but with the odd spot. Well preserved for its age - would benefit from a sympathetic rebind. Overall: GOOD ONLY with a very good interior.

This is the variant with the reprinted title page dated 1723 but with pagination and register matching that of the 1719 edition (Upcott, p.9). ESTC T140220. Elias Ashmole (1617-1692) was an antiquary and astrologer whose life straddles the upheavals of 17th century England. Although a committed royalist he met and developed a lifelong friendship with the astrologer William Lily, who, at the time of their meeting, was making predictions favourable to the parliaments cause. Ashmole's career as an antiquary seems to start in the 1650s, when he catalogued the Tradescant collection, the ealiest known catalogue of an English 'Cabinet of Curiosities'. His interests as an antiquary were given further impetus when he met and became friends with William Dugdale in the mid 1650s. Although not published until after his death, Ashmole had begun collecting material for this book in 1667. Ashmole's extensive collections would eventually be given to Oxford University on the condition that they built a suitable building to house them. That building opened in 1683 as the Ashmolean Museum, the first public museum in modern Europe., 8vo .

        The Antiquities of Berkshire

      London, for W. Mears, and J. Hooke,, 1723. With A large Appendix of many Valuable Original Papers, Pedigrees of the most considerable Families in the said County, and a particular Account of the Castle, College, and Town of Windsor. 3 volumes, octavo. Contemporary sprinkled calf, dark green morocco numbering and lettering pieces, gilt rules, covers panelled in gilt, red sprinkled edges. Large folding county map incorporating view of Windsor Castle as frontispiece, the map coloured in outline; genealogical tables in text, of which 11 are folding; engraved vignette on vol. III, Zz1 recto; woodcut title vignettes and tailpieces. Bookplates of Joshua Smith MP, Stoke Park, Erlestoke, Wiltshire; later library shelfmarks on front pastedowns. A little skilful repair to extremities, an excellent set. The first county history of Berkshire. The astrologer and antiquary Elias Ashmole (1617–1692) was appointed to the College of Arms as Windsor Herald of Arms in Ordinary in 1660. In 1667, he began collecting information for this book, but it was not to be published until after his death. Although well suited to the role and highly active in it, Ashmole resigned as Windsor herald in 1675, evidently disillusioned by factional strife within the college, and, despite pressure from many in high places, refused to take heraldic office of any kind thereafter. First published in 1719, this is the second edition; a third was published at Reading in 1736. Sir Walter Scott used Ashmole's lengthy account of the murder of Amy Robsart, the Earl of Leicester's secret wife, as the primary source for his Elizabethan novel Kenilworth.

        Commentaries on the laws of England NEW RESPECT FOR THE LAW

      With the engraved "Table of Consanguinity" and folding "Table of Descents" in Volume II. Modern half-morocco and cloth boards, spine gilt in 6 compartments, a.e.g. With the bookplate of Louis E. Goodman on the paste-downs. An excellent copy. PMM, 212. FIRST EDITION of the author's great history of English law. Blackstone (1723-70) was the first to make the law accessible to the common person. "Blackstone's great achievement was to popularize the law and the traditions which had influenced its formation. If the English constitution survived the troubles of the next century, it was because the law had gained a new popular respect, and this was due in part to the enormous success of Blackstone's work" (PMM). "The Commentaries are not only a statement of the law of Blackstone's day, but the best history of English law as a whole which had yet appeared . . . the skillful manner in which Blackstone uses his authorities new and old, and the analogy of other systems of law, to illustrate the evolution of the law of his day, had a vast influence both in England and America, in implanting in the profession a sound tradition of the historical development of the law. . . ."&

        Benedicti Carpzovii, JC. Consiliarii Electoralis Saxonici, Practiae Novae Imperialis Saxonicae Rerum Criminalium

      Lpz., Fridrich Gleditschius 1723.. Editio Undecima, A Multis Mendis, Quibus Priores Editiones Scatebant, Vindicata ..., 3 Bde in 1 geb. 2°. 5 Bll., 298; (8) 371; (8) 356 S., 46 Bll. Pgmt. d. 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.

        La Florida del Inca. Historia del Adelantado, Hernando de Soto, Governador, y Capitan General del Reino de la Florida. de otros heroicos caballeros, Españoles, e indios

      [xxx]+268+[12] pages with red and black title. Small folio (12" x 8 1/4") bound in original leather with gilt lettering and decoration to spine. Third edition.The first edition of the La Florida was published by Pedro Crasbeeck at Lisbon. A reprint of this edition with emendations was made at Madrid in 1723 under the editorship of Andres Gonzalez Baria Carballido y Zuniga, which was quickly sold out and a third edition was published that same year with out the fold out map.Garcilaso, from time to time both in Peru and in Spain, encountered me who had participated in De Soto's expedition, but on several occasions declares that the material for the La Florida was derived solely from three sources. The account of Alonso de Carmona was received from the author himself, and that of Juan Coles he found in a somewhat battered condition at the establishment of a printer in Cordova. But the bulk of his facts came to him orally from noble Spaniard, who he eventually cornered in Las Posadas. The identity of this man he for some reason leaves shrouded in mystery; nevertheless, there is sufficient evidence for speculation, and historians in general have concluded that he was non other than Gonzalo Silvestre, a native of Herrera de Alcantara, whose fine horsemanship and exceptional boldness displayed as he gallops through the pages of La Florida.Condition:Spine head chipped away, edge wear with rubbing, leather scuffed, some margins professionally repaired else a good copy.

        Observations on the Nature of Civil Liberty, the Principales of Government, and the Justice and Policy of the War with America. To Which are Added, an Appendix and Postcript, Containing a State of the National Debt?

      T. Cadell, Pamphlet, 8vo, stitched, uncut, 132 pp. Some small tears and chips at extremities, some soiling to title and final pages, normal aging and browning. Price (1723-1791) was a prominent philosopher and poltical radical. He was also a clergyman, and continued to preach until his death in 1791. Around 1758, he started to publish his political and moral views, and in 1776, wrote this pro American tract that defended American patriots. His pro American views even got him an invitation from Benjamin Franklin in 1778 to come to America to advise on financial matters.This was a very important work in its time, and was published in a number of editions, including editions in Philadelphia, New York and Boston.

        Novum testamentum graecum ... Collectionem Millianam recensuit, meliori ordine disposuit, novisque accessionibus locupletavit Ludolphus Kusterus. Editio secunda

      Lipsiae: Sumptibus filii J. Friderici Gleditschii, 1723. Folio (40 cm, 15.75"). [20], 168, [2] pp.; 632 pp.; illus. Based on John Mill's much-lauded 1707 edition of the Greek New Testament, this is the second issue of Ludolph Kuster's revised version, originally published in 1710. A scholar from the Westphalia region of Germany, Kuster (1670–1716) specialized in paleography and Greek; this printing includes his preface and Prolegomena, and extensive commentary in Latin below the main text. Using twelve new manuscripts in his research, Kuster significantly added to Mill's (1645–1707) collation. The title-page, printed in red and black, features a => hand-colored engraved vignette of the Virgin Mary enthroned above the Earth, flanked by an eagle, a lion, a bull, and an angel, representing the Four Evangelists, and there are => five additional, large, illustrative hand-colored engraved vignettes functioning as headpieces in the text. Printed double-column and divided in the middle of each page by a paragraph of citations, the text is dotted by a variety of woodcut floriated and historiated initials, and factotum Greek capitals. Provenance: J. Provost largely written in light blue ink on title-page. Darlow & Moule 4735. Recent period-style quarter calf over marbled boards, raised bands accented with gilt ruling; gilt center devices in spine compartments, gilt red and green morocco author/title labels, place and date (misprinted 1721) gilt-stamped collector-style at base; red speckled edges. Ex-library: stamp on bottom edge, faded red stamp on half-title and title-page (almost invisible), number lightly inked to first page of preface. Occasional inkstains, with one large spill across an opening affecting four leaves on either side; all can yet be read, but the accident was a sad one. Otherwise minor to moderate foxing throughout and light marginal staining in lower outer corners, starting from back; chip to edge of title-page, tear to one top margin not reaching text, and a small natural hole in one lower outer corner. Marginal notes in pencil on two leaves (one, just a few words), and a longer note in older ink on another. Solid, impressive and usable, and its illustrations => LOVELY.

        Primera [-tercera] parte de los viente I un libros rituales

      Madrid,: Franco,, 1723.. Three volumes, folio, with engraved titles and a folding map with original handcolouring; neat old library stamps in several places; a handsome set in eighteenth-century Spanish polished marbled calf, double crimson morocco spine labels. This is the second and best edition of Torquemada's book, with the important map in rare and handsome original colour. This map (which did not appear in the 1615 Seville edition) centres on the Pacific, and shows the Chinese coast, the Philippines, Solomons, New Guinea and "Tierra Austral" to the west and Mexico and South America to the east. It is more often seen uncoloured. The preface mentions the extreme rarity of the first edition - only three copies were known in Madrid in 1723 - and explains that most copies had apparently been lost in a shipwreck, presumably en route to Mexico.The book is especially important in the literature of Pacific exploration because of Torquemada's account of Quiros' voyage of 1605, in which he sailed from Callao to locate the fabled Southern Continent. The earliest extensive description of the expedition to be printed, this remained the only reliable source available to navigators, geographers and historians until the nineteenth century. Celsus Kelly ("The narrative of Pedro Fernandez de QuirÛs" in Historical Studies, Australia and New Zealand IX/34, May 1960) has shown that Torquemada had access to Quiros' own account of the voyage as well as to the journal of Munilla, the commissary of the Franciscans who was also on the voyage. In fact Torquemada probably met Quiros in Mexico City in 1607, and again in Madrid in 1613. Kelly shows too that Torquemada probably also interviewed two other members of the expedition, the ensign Pedro LÛpez de Sojo and the sergeant Pedro GarcÌa de Lumbreras.Torquemada's book is important for many other reasons, not least for its account of Legazpi's expedition to the Philippines (see Retana, 226). Hill describes the book as the 'key work on the early history of Spanish North America, particularly Mexico, the Southwest and California... the primary source of VizcaÌno's 1596 and 1602 expeditions and voyage of discovery to California. It contains Father Antonio de la AscensiÛn's letter which relates to VizcaÌno's voyage during which most of the bays, headlands and rivers, including San Diego, were renamed. Torquemada also deals at length with Juan de Oçate's conquest of New Mexico, and briefly with the expeditions of Coronado, AlarcÛn, Espizo and Niza... The Mexican historian and statesman Lucas Alam·n called Torquemada the Livy of New Spain... '(Hill). The section of Torquemada's book dealing with the VizcaÌno expedition was published as a separate volume by the Book Club of California in 1933.Hill, 1707; JCB, 339; Medina, BHA IV, 2491; Palau, 335033.

Not examined out of the frame. A few minor creases. Slight darkening along the the fold. Nice condition.. An extremely rare sea chart of the Stockholm archipelago. Norris charts are almost never on the market and especially not such an important one as the Stockholm archipelago. Sir John Norris made several tours for the english navy in the Baltic. One result of this frequent service in the area was his atlas of the Baltic and the North Sea. It was first published in1723, with further editions in 1728 and 1756. This copy is probably from the 1728 or 1756 edition. Swedish names transformed into swedish are quite amusing to read, such as "Nymdy Fuer", "Lydingen" and "Uthoon"

Elias Ashmole (1617-1692) was an antiquary and astrologer whose life straddles the upheavals of 17th century England. Although a committed royalist he met and developed a lifelong friendship with the astrologer William Lily, who, at the time of their meeting, was making predictions favourable to the parliaments cause. Ashmole's career as an antiquary seems to start in the 1650s, when he catalogued the Tradescant collection, the ealiest known catalogue of an English 'Cabinet of Curiosities'. His interests as an antiquary were given further impetus when he met and became friends with William Dugdale in the mid 1650s. Although not published until after his death, Ashmole had begun collecting material for this book in 1667. Ashmole's extensive collections would eventually be given to Oxford University on the condition that they built a suitable building to house them. That building opened in 1683 as the Ashmolean Museum, the first public museum in modern Europe., 8vo .
