Mid 19th-century green morocco, titles to spine decorated gilt in compartments, decorative gilt frames to covers, edges and turn-ins gilt, marbled endpapers. Spine faded, boards slightly sprung, occasional faint foxing; an excellent copy. Title page printed in red and black. Second edition in English. The Voyages de Jehan de Mandeville chevalier first appeared in manuscript in France c.1357. The first edition in English was printed in 1499; in 1725 this new edition was prepared from the Cotton manuscript in the British Museum, printed by William Boyer in an issue of 350 copies, establishing the standard English text. Now known to have been confected from a variety of earlier sources, the Travels purports to be the personal account of Sir John Mandeville, born and bred in St Albans, who left England in 1322 and travelled the world for many years, serving the sultan of Cairo and visiting the Great Khan, and finally in 1357 in age and illness setting down his account of the world. That account covers his travels to the Middle East and Palestine in the first part, before he continues to India, Tibet, China, Java, and Sumatra, then returns westward via Arabia, Egypt and North Africa. Mandeville "enjoyed widespread popularity in the fifteenth century and was respected by scholars and cartographers, Columbus among them, who consulted it as a reliable source on the Far East" (Howgego). From the library of Irish judge and discerning book collector William O'Brien (1832-99), which was endowed on his death to the Milltown Park Jesuit Library, Dublin. This copy bears his post-mortem bookplate and the Milltown Park library ticket and bequest label to the front pastedown. Howgego V, M13; ESTC T100822.

Andrea Pozzo (1642 – 1709) was an Italian Jesuit, Baroque painter and architect, decorator, stage designer, and art theoretician. He was best known for his grandiose frescoes using illusionistic technique called quadratura, in which architecture and fancy are intermixed. His masterpiece is the nave ceiling of the Church of Sant'Ignazio in Rome. Through his techniques, he has become one of the most remarkable figures of the Baroque period. He is also noted for the architectural plans of the Ljubljana Cathedral (1700), inspired by the designs of the Jesuit churches Il Gesù and S. Ignazio in Rome. (Wikipedia).

        The Student's Companion: or, the Reason of the Laws of England. Shewing, the principal reasons and motives whereon our laws and statutes are grounded, in the most essential and capital points, not only in civil but criminal cases; Together with the law it self. So as to convey to all students, and others, the fundamental knowledge of the law, necessary in their studies.

      London: Printed by E. and R. Nutt, and R. Gosling, for T. Corbett, 1725 - Octavo (193 x 114 mm). Contemporary calf, recent red label period style, two-line blind border on sides, blind swag-and-pendant border at inner edge of both sides. Ownership inscription on front free endpaper: "Ambrose Dawson puchased from Dr Hodsons Library". Ambrose Dawson (1707-1794), physician; 20th-century bookplate of Robert J. Hayhurst, Lancashire retail chemist and bibliophile, whose main library of naval history was complemented by a subsidiary of collection of eighteenth-century literature in well-preserved contemporary bindings. Extremities of spine and corners worn, front joint cracked but sound, back joint partially cracked, dampstain to front endpapers, some foxing but overall this remains an appealing copy in period calf. First edition. Giles Jacob (bap. 1686-1744), "the leading legal writer of his age, was less notable for his style. than for the variety of his work. Jacob was prolific, and some of his efforts aimed to reach relatively new markets. The Students Companion, or, Reason of the Law. like Jacob's The Common Law Common-Placed (1726), were among a growing number of printed books intended to help law students with their studies. The Students Companion organized and digested statutes and cases, while The Common Law Common-Placed served as a ready commonplace book and reference guide for legal terms. The latter also attracted critics who felt that printed study aids took away the useful work of manual notetaking" (Yale Law School, Taussig Collection online). Jacob had a notable spat with Alexander Pope and the law writer's stylistic shortcomings were highlighted in The Dunciad Variorum (1729): "Jacob, the scourge of Grammar, mark with awe, / Nor less revere him, blunderbuss of Law". Decidedly uncommon: ESTC locates copies at only four British and Irish institutional libraries (BL, Scotland, Cambridge, Ireland) and OCLC adds another six locations worldwide. See Julia Rudolph, Common Law and Enlightenment in England, 1689-1750 (2013). [Attributes: First Edition]

        Iconologia, of uytbeeldingen des verstands: Om uyt te drucken, en te vinden, 't begrip van alle sinnebeelden, invallen, devijsen of sinteykenen. Amsterdam, Dirck Pietsz. Pers, 1644. 4to. With engraved allegorical frontispiece and 196 emblematic woodcut illustrations (ca. 8.5 x 6 cm) in the text by Jan Christoffel Jegher. Parchment (ca. 1725?).

      - Landwehr, Emblem books Low Countries 683; Praz, p. 474. First Dutch edition, newly and extensively illustrated, of a famous encyclopaedia of iconology, the Iconologia of Cesare Ripa (1560- 1645). It describes about 650 symbolic human or semi-human figures, illustrates nearly 200, and was intended as a guide for all kinds of artists, writers, orators and amateurs. In the present 1644 edition the Amsterdam publisher, bookseller and poet Dirck Pietersz. Pers (1581-1659) translated and edited Ripa's text and Castellini's additions and made further additions of his own. He also included 196 woodcut illustrations cut for this edition based on a selection of those in the 1630 edition. It was in this form that Ripa's work was best known to artists in the Dutch golden age and it remained in use by painters and designers for the decorative arts far into the 18th century. With water stains throughout, serious in the first few and last few leaves, and marginal tears or restorations in a few leaves, but still in good condition and with large margins. The binding is uniformly abraded but structurally sound. An important source of knowledge and inspiration for artists of the Dutch golden age. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Esposizione ragionata della contestazione, che sussiste tra le due Repubbliche di Venezia, e di Olanda. [Vienna or Venice?], 1785. 8vo. With a woodcut decoration on the title-page. Contemporary blue-grey marbled wrappers.

      Pollio, p. 119; Rives Childs, Casanoviana XXXII.2 (p. 74); WorldCat (3 copies this edition, 3 another ed. & 2 ambiguous). One of the rare first two Italian editions (apparently by the same printer, priority uncertain) of an interesting diplomatic pamphlet by Giacomo Casanova (1725-1798), world famous for his romantic and sexual adventures with numerous noble women. In the years 1772 to 1776 the Venetian Zannovich brothers successfully defrauded two Dutch merchants in a complicated swindle with bills of exchange, cargos of non-existent ships and uncovered debts. Amsterdam officials found Venice's failure to take action against the perpetrators exasperating and believed that a Venetian diplomat had abetted the brothers. This was the situation when Casanova stepped in and attempted to influence public opinion by writing at least three pamphlets about the incident in 1784 and 1785. He exposed the perpetrators and argued that the Venetian diplomat was another ignorant victim of their fraud. Very good copy. The wrapper is slightly faded near the spine, where it also has a couple small holes. Rare example of Casanova's skills in the seduction of disputing governments rather than women.

Containing the modern history and description of all the provinces, towns, castles, palaces &c. of that fruitful, populous country, so long the scene of wars and dreadful ravages, till it was by the treaty of Utrecht yielded to the Emperor of Germany. With an account of all the remarkable battles and sieges; taken from the most authentic narratives.

Slight wear to extremities, small chip to head of spine, top edge dust toned; an excellent copy. First edition. Macky, a post officer and spy, turned to travel writing in 1714 in an attempt to assuage his debts. His first work, A Journey through England in Familiar Letters, was published in 1714, and was followed by, A Journey through Scotland in 1723. A Journey through the Austrian Netherlands was "undertaken instead of a promised volume on Ireland" and "probably masked his espionage work in the territories" (ODNB). Macky had first visited the region in 1713 when he fled to Flanders to escape his numerous creditors in England. This copy additionally with the bookplate of Robert J. Hayhurst to the front pastedown, heir to a successful chain of dispensing chemists, based in Nelson, Lancashire: "A collector of books, in a delightful room at his home, white-painted bookshelves stacked high on all the available wall space show to advantage the hand-tooled leather bindings of a collection that has been acquired slowly and with discrimination over the years" (The Chemist and Druggist, 7 September 1957).

Il frontespizio recita pure "Fatica non solo utile, e dilettevole a' i Studiosi, ma necessaria ancora a' Pittori, Scultori, et a' quelli, che di Statue, di Medaglie, et altre Antichità si dilettano." partendo dai geroglifici aveva l'ambizione con la sua ricca iconografia, di essere fonte per il vasto mondo degli "artefici" dell'arte.

        Carte le Duchè de Ferrare a l’Eglise

      Amsterdam 1725 - La bottega di produzione, pubblicazione e vendita di materiale cartografico della famiglia fu fondata da Joachim Ottens (1663 – 1719), ma ebbe il periodo di maggiore sviluppo e produzione tra il 1720 ed il 1750 sotto la guida dei figli Reiner (1698 -1750) e Joshua (1704 – 1765). La produzione della bottega Ottens è enorme; include copie di praticamente tutte le mappe sino ad allora prodotte e disponibili, raggiungendo il numero di oltre 800 lastre, raccolte in 15 volumi di atlanti. Le carte sono caratterizzate dal fatto di essere finemente colorate a mano con colori accesi, mentre scarsa è la loro reperibilità sul mercato. Il seguente gruppo di carte è tratto dal Atlas Maior, pubblicato intorno al 1730. Incisioni in rame, finemente colorate a mano in epoca, ampli margini, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Rare. La mappa è una riduzione di quella realizzata da Pierre Mortier, a sua volta ispirata da Nicolas Sanson.

        Praga. Prag

      Augsburg 1725 - Delineata sulla scia della più grande veduta di Jeremias Wolff, l’opera offre quaranta riferimenti topografici. Il Leopold, era un modesto incisore ed editore di Augsburg; la sua serie di vedute di città, da cui questa incisione è tratta, venne pubblicata con pochissima tiratura, rendendo quindi le opere particolarmente rare. Incisione in rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. In the wake of Jeremias Wolff’s bigger view, this work presents many topographical references. Leopold was a modest engraver and publisher in Augsburg; the series of city views, from which this one is taken, has been published in a very limited circulation, which means these works are very rare. Copperplat, in excellent condition. Dimensioni 300 200mm

Slight wear to extremities, small chip to head of spine, top edge dust toned; an excellent copy. First edition. Macky, a post officer and spy, turned to travel writing in 1714 in an attempt to assuage his debts. His first work, A Journey through England in Familiar Letters, was published in 1714, and was followed by, A Journey through Scotland in 1723. A Journey through the Austrian Netherlands was "undertaken instead of a promised volume on Ireland" and "probably masked his espionage work in the territories" (ODNB). Macky had first visited the region in 1713 when he fled to Flanders to escape his numerous creditors in England. This copy additionally with the bookplate of Robert J. Hayhurst to the front pastedown, heir to a successful chain of dispensing chemists, based in Nelson, Lancashire: "A collector of books, in a delightful room at his home, white-painted bookshelves stacked high on all the available wall space show to advantage the hand-tooled leather bindings of a collection that has been acquired slowly and with discrimination over the years" (The Chemist and Druggist, 7 September 1957).
