        Caart van het Eyland Manipa / Caart van het Eyland Noessa-Laoet / Caart van het Eyland Honimoa / Caart van het Eyland Oma

      Amsterdam: Francois Valentijn, 1726. unbound. Chart. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 17 3/4 x 22 1/4". This rare chart depicts the Islands in the Moluccas group. Essentially four maps on a single sheet, the islands of Manipa, Noessa-Laoet, Honimoa and Oma are included here. The Moluccas, part of the so-called Spice Islands, otherwise known as the Maluku Islands in Indonesia. Covered largely in mountains and forests, the islands were highly valued by the Dutch as a center for the trade in nutmeg, mace and cloves that were originally found only there. A panel on the left depicts an interesting scene of two warriors from Manipa, west of Seram, in battle with knife, shield and sword. The map also features rhumb lines and compass rose. Map is in very good condition with some offsetting and foxing throughout. François Valentijn (1666-1727) was a Dutch minister and naturalist who worked as a missionary in India. He is best known for his "Oud en Nieuw Oost-Indiën," a monumental history and description of the East Indies and its surrounding lands that remains a significant primary source today. This map is a fascinating document of Dutch involvement in the region.

III/1, S. 122-25, Noten S. 72-74. - Wichtige erste Ausgabe des ersten Werkes zu Grundfragen des geistigen Eigentums und Urheberrechts. Der Frühaufklärer, Jurist (\"Icti\", d. i. Iuris consulti) und Hallenser Professor wendet sich vehement gegen die Unsitte seiner Zeit, den Nachdruck von Büchern ohne Zustimmung des Autors oder des berechtigten Verlegers. Er fordert ein Verbot aus Fragen der Gerechtigkeit und der wirtschaftlichen Überlebensfähigkeit von Autoren und Verlegern. Mit den Raubdruckern geht Gundling hart ins Gericht, er bezeichnet sie als \"Hottentotten“, denen ein hässlicher Wurm in der Seele sitzt und empfiehlt ihnen, zu den Tartaren oder nach Irland zu gehen, wo das Plündern und Rauben bekanntlich erlaubt sei. - Sehr gutes Exemplar!

He was chief justice after 1733 and lord chancellor after 1737. Belcher also served as governor of New Jersey, appointed in 1747.

Das Lübische Recht (auch: Lübsche Recht) war das von der Reichsstadt Lübeck übernommene Recht und galt in über 100 Städten der Hanse im Ostseeraum, in manchen deutschen Städten teils bis zur Einfühung des BGB im Jahre 1900. Das Lübsche Recht basierte auf dem Soester Stadtrecht, das Lübeck 1160 verliehen worden war. Der Lübecker Rat vereinigte Elemente verschiedener Rechtsvorstellungen und schuf so ein Werk, das - nur wenig verändert - die Zeiten überdauerte. Es war das einzige deutsche Stadtrecht, das bis zum Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts seinen deutschrechtlichen Ursprung bewahrte. Unter den Städten, die Lübsches Recht anwandten waren Rostock, Stralsund, Oldenburg, Plön, Kiel, Elbing, Reval, Memel, Danzig, Wolgast, Stolp, Kolberg, Barth, Krakau, Nowgorod, Wismar, Riga u.v.a. 700 Gramm.

        TO THE KING'S MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY IN COUNCIL...[caption title]

      [London, 1726. printed on the recto of two folio sheets. Worn along edges, some small tears and separations on folds neatly repaired. Overall good. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. This document, probably printed for limited circulation to some British government body (possibly the Privy Council), publishes three petitions to the Crown relating to the governorship of Pennsylvania. Sir William Keith, who was appointed lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania by the original proprietor, William Penn, shortly before Penn's death, gained considerable popularity with the Assembly and the artisan class in the colony, all of whom wished for greater freedom in conducting their affairs. The merchant class was generally aligned with the interests of the proprietors. Keith served as governor from 1717 to 1726, when the tensions in the colony erupted in riots, which Keith did little to suppress. The Penn family immediately sought to replace Keith with one of their Loyalists, Patrick Gordon. In the first of these three petitions, William Penn's grandson, Springett Penn, implores the King to appoint him to the governorship so Gordon might continue his family's interests. The second petition, from Alexander Spottswood on behalf of William Keith, encourages the Crown to allow Keith to continue, arguing "that nothing less than an extraordinary Portion of Prudence could enable a Governour to conduct your Majesty's subjects there in that Peace and Tranquillity which Sir William Keith has all along done." The last petition is from a group of Keith supporters, urging both an adequate pension for the former governor and the extension of his office. It is likely that this document, presenting the opposing petitions, was printed in London in 1726, at the point when news of the disruptions in Pennsylvania reached there. Since these are petitions to the King and the affair was dealt with hastily, it is probable that it was printed for circulation to the Privy Council or the Council on Foreign Plantations to advise the Crown. They did, removing Keith and appointing Gordon. Keith remained in the colony until 1728, when he returned to England. Business reverses landed him in debtors prison in 1734, and he died there in 1740. An important document, not listed on OCLC, not in Cohen, and very rare.

        Lithographiae Wirceburgensis, ducentis lapidum figuratorum, a potiori insectiformium, prodigiosis imaginibus exornatae specimen primum.

      - Wirceburgi, apud P.W. Fuggart, 1726. Folio (310 x 200mm). pp. (12), 96 (recte 98), with engraved frontispiece and 21 engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, gilt ornamented spine in 6 compartments. A fine copy of the first edition of one of the rarest curiosities in geological literature. "In the early years of the 18th century there were still a few skirmishes over the organic origin of fossils, but the notion that they were mere sports of nature was finally killed by ridiculous. Some pupils of J. Beringer of Würzburg decided that they would assists nature and their Professor by making some of these sports themselves; they therefore carved fantastic figures and hid them in the hills which Beringer explored. After making a large collection, he published a fully illustrated work 'Lithographiae Wirceburgensis' 1726, now one of the rarest curiosities of geological literature; for Beringer finally discovered the deception, endeavoured to buy up and destroy the whole collection" (Edwards. Early History of Paleontology, p. 34). Unfortunately he did not destroy the copies which he purchased, they were found in his house after his death and bought by a publisher who provided them with a new title-page and issued them in 1767 as a second edition of this work.M.E. Jahn & D.J. Woolf in their translation and commentary of the above work 'The Lying Stones of Dr. Johann Bartholomew Adam Beringer .' point out that the fakes were made by two academic rivals of the university, J.I. Roderick, professor of geography and mathematics and J.G. von Eckhart, privy counsellor and university librarian, and not Beringer's students as is often believed.Our copy does not have the six pages of Hueber's 'Corollaries' which have no relation with the above work. Hueber's small work is inserted in some copies, however most copies do not have it.Ward & Carozzi 182; Junk Rara I, p. 27. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        THE HISTORY OF THE WARS OF NEW-ENGLAND, WITH THE EASTERN INDIANS. OR, A NARRATIVE OF THEIR CONTINUED PERFIDY AND CRUELTY

      Boston, 1726. 12mo. Antique-style speckled calf, ruled in gilt, spine tooled in gilt, raised bands, gilt morocco label. Titlepage has been backed with paper, expertly repairing a small tear in the center foredge, with two letters in the date "1725" in fine facsimile. First text leaf repaired in margins, as are leaves S1 and S2, resulting in loss of a few letters of text. Text trimmed quite close, occasionally shaving a page number or the outer letter of a line of text. "Advertisement" (i.e. Errata) leaf in expert facsimile, as is almost always the case with this book. Still a very good copy overall. One of the primary sources for the early Indian wars of New England, describing the fighting on the northern and eastern borders of Massachusetts during Queen Anne's War of 1703-13, as well as fighting in 1722-25. Vail calls it an "excellent history," and Field adds that Penhallow's "work on the Indian wars is esteemed as the highest authority on that subject." Penhallow, although having gone to Massachusetts as a missionary, became a chief justice of the colony, and as such was in an excellent position to know about colonial military affairs. A very rare book, accorded a "c" rating by Howes. Field ranks it "among the rarest of New England imprints.

      Black sharkskin (spine slightly damaged), with a silver centerpiece depicting a VOC-vessel and two silver clasps with the monogram VOCD (VOC chamber of Delft), at both covers. With the original silver pencil connecting the clasps and at the same time functioning as a catch. Gilt edges. 12°. Almanack printed in black and red. Before the almanac three marbled and three blanc flyleafs. With seven leafs of waxcoated paper, interleafed with blancs. At the back a pocket, made of brocate paper and green silk. Beautiful copy of a rare VOC-almanac. Almanacs of this kind were made as special gifts for the Rotterdam and Delft chamber of the Dutch East India Company. The printed almanac is combined with specially prepared paper on which one could write with the silver pencil. These writings could be removed afterwards, to be able to use the pages again. This technique was used in the 16th and 17th century for note-books and sketch-books. Artists like Rembrandt and Goltzius used them to make a removable draft for a drawing or print. Usually the printed almanac was removed from the binding after the year had passed, leaving a usable note book. An entry in the diary of the Amsterdam silversmith Johan George Holtzhey (1726-1808) reveals that the silver work for both the Delft and Rotterdam chamber of the VOC were made by him. Each year he made about twelve of these almanacs by order of the chambers of Delft and Rotterdam, which were meant as gifts for friends and relations of the directors. About 20 of these VOC-almanacs are known in public collections, but only two of them still contain the original calendar. A12.B0094.

Whereby the Opinion and Judgment of the Courts May be Seen in an Exact Series of Time, And What Alterations Have Been Made in the Law by Subsequent Statutes and Judgments, Brought Down to the Year 1725. [London]: Printed by E. and R. Nutt and R. Gosling, 1725-1726. Three volumes. [xviii], 706; [xiv], 1304; [xii], 576, [111] pp. Folio (13-3/4" x 9"). Later three-quarter calf over textured cloth, lettering pieces and rules to spines, endpapers renewed. (Volume 1, bound at a later date, is a very close match, but not exact.) Light rubbing and a few minor scuffs to extremities. Faint dampstaining, dampspotting and early owner annotations and signatures to preliminaries, interiors otherwise fresh. * Only edition. Nelson intended this work to serve the needs of the student and lawyer, but he attempted to abridge cases with such "clearness and perspicuity" that they could be understood by the "common reader" (Preface). He assumed it would be used in conjunction with the abridgments of Brooke and Fitzherbert, so he did not include cases that are in those two works. Nelson was a versatile and gifted legal writer. In addition to his abridgment he published a notable JP Manual, treatises on forest law and evidence and editions of Dalton's Countrey Justice, Blount's Nomo Lexicon and Manwood's Laws of the Forest.

Woodcut head and tail-pieces, text printed with wide margins. Moderate toning to text, faint dampspotting in places, internally clean. A handsome copy * Second and final edition. Gavelkind is a form of land tenure unique to Kent (and its environs) in which land descends equally to the decedent's sons. It was common during the Saxon era, but was gradually supplanted by primogeniture after 1066. Produced during the first wave of modern English legal scholarship, Somner's pioneering work was the first study of gavelkind, and one of the first important studies of early English law. Philological in orientation, it is a history of gavelkind and an analysis of its forms. Texts of significant documents are included. He also goes beyond his subject in one section to discuss the law of succession to chattels. Somner, a pupil of Causubon, was an ecclesiastical lawyer and historian of Anglo-Saxon law and literature who is best known for his pioneering Dictionarium Saxonico-Latino-Anglicum (1659).

        Acts of Assembly passed in the Province of New-York, from 1691-1725. Examined and compared with the originals in the secretary's office

      William Bradford, New York 1726 - (12 1/4 x 7 5/8 inches). [10], 124 [i.e., 128], 121-252, 261-319, [1, blank] pp. [mispaginated, as issued]. Woodcut arms of King George I on the title. (Head of title clipped without loss of text and expertly repaired). Expertly bound to style in half calf over period marbled paper covered boards, spine with raised bands in six compartments, ruled in gilt on either side of each band, red morocco lettering piece Provenance: Richard Price (early owner's signature on title and manuscript additions to the final page of the table) An early New York imprint from the press of William Bradford, the "pioneering printer of the English middle colonies" (DAB) and first printer of New York. Bradford (1663-1752) originally settled in Pennsylvania, where he began operating a printing press in 1685 and a bookstore in 1688. Controversies within the Quaker community, with Bradford supporting the dissident George Keith, led to the temporary seizure of his type and paper in 1692, and in 1693 he moved to New York. The present acts of Assembly cover the legislation passed between 1691 and 1725. Laws here include acts "for quieting and settling the Disorders that have lately happened within this Province" (1691), "for restraining and punishing Privateers and Pyrates" (1693 and 1698), and "against Jesuites and Popish Priests" (1700), as well as numerous acts "for Regulating Slaves" and one for "Baptizing them" (1706). Other Acts include those relating to Queen Anne's War, as well as the continuing conflicts with the French and Indians. A major early New York imprint, from the press of its first printer.

        The artificer's looking-glass: containing, an exact and diverting representation of the lives, conduct, characters, and various humours of the following professors; as it was taken from their own mouths, in their several respective addresses to mother art. Viz. Limners, stone carvers, glass blowers, frame-work knitters, taylors, hatters, carpenters, joyners, brick-layers, sawyers, plaisterers, glaziers, weavers, wine-coopers, potters, dancing-masters, pipe-makers, watch-makers, &c. By Edmund Carter, Philo-Ars

      London: printed for J. Wilford, at the Three Flower de-Luces, in Little-Britain. 1726. 8vo., in half-sheets, (8) + 62pp., without the advertisement leaf, upper margins cropped up to p.24 with loss or partial loss of several page numbers (but in no case affecting the text), bound in early 20th century black half roan over marbled boards, neatly rebacked to match, spine gilt lettered. Sometime in the library of The Surveyors' Institution with its 1908 bookplate> on front pastedown but with no other obvious marks of ownership. Only edition: rare (COPAC & OCLC find copies at only 6 libraries: BL + Guildhall + Columbia + Huntington + Congress + Princeton). Hanson 3577 (the BL copy). This seems to be a graphic portrait of London tradesmen, their grievances and temptations, written, from a moral point of view, as if it was a confession to 'Mother Art' herself. The grievances are, of course, about wages and working conditions, the temptations (by which so many tradesmen are ruined) including drink, sex, gambling and debt. 'The intention of this treatise', writes the author, 'is to paint virtue and vice in their proper colours and distinct lights'. It is relevant also to note that Chester Noyes Greenough consulted this book, but rejected it for not matching his criteria, in his Bibliography of the Theophrastan character in English.> (p.189).

        TO THE KING'S MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY IN COUNCIL...[caption title]

      [London. 1726].. [2]pp. printed on the recto of two folio sheets. Worn along edges, some small tears and separations on folds neatly repaired. Overall good. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. This document, probably printed for limited circulation to some British government body (possibly the Privy Council), publishes three petitions to the Crown relating to the governorship of Pennsylvania. Sir William Keith, who was appointed lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania by the original proprietor, William Penn, shortly before Penn's death, gained considerable popularity with the Assembly and the artisan class in the colony, all of whom wished for greater freedom in conducting their affairs. The merchant class was generally aligned with the interests of the proprietors. Keith served as governor from 1717 to 1726, when the tensions in the colony erupted in riots, which Keith did little to suppress. The Penn family immediately sought to replace Keith with one of their Loyalists, Patrick Gordon. In the first of these three petitions, William Penn's grandson, Springett Penn, implores the King to appoint him to the governorship so Gordon might continue his family's interests. The second petition, from Alexander Spottswood on behalf of William Keith, encourages the Crown to allow Keith to continue, arguing "that nothing less than an extraordinary Portion of Prudence could enable a Governour to conduct your Majesty's subjects there in that Peace and Tranquillity which Sir William Keith has all along done." The last petition is from a group of Keith supporters, urging both an adequate pension for the former governor and the extension of his office. It is likely that this document, presenting the opposing petitions, was printed in London in 1726, at the point when news of the disruptions in Pennsylvania reached there. Since these are petitions to the King and the affair was dealt with hastily, it is probable that it was printed for circulation to the Privy Council or the Council on Foreign Plantations to advise the Crown. They did, removing Keith and appointing Gordon. Keith remained in the colony until 1728, when he returned to England. Business reverses landed him in debtors prison in 1734, and he died there in 1740. An important document, not listed on OCLC, not in Cohen, and very rare. DAB X, pp.292-93.

A very good crisp copy. First and only edition: really quite rare. (Copies located at only 10 libraries in ESTC & OCLC of which only Cambridge + Guildhall + H.A.C. in UK. Not in BL). The author was Adjutant and Clerk to the Honourable Artillery Company. Two of the large folding plates show soldiers training with the half-pike and the halbert. * i.e. John 1st baron Gretton of Stapleford, 1867-1947, brewer and politician, who was a director of England's leading brewery, Bass, Ratcliff and Gretton of Burton upon Trent. 'Despite his Quaker descent, Gretton joined the Staffordshire volunteer regiment when young and maintained a lifelong devotion to soldiering. Known as ?'Colonel?' Gretton, he commanded the 6th battalion of the North Staffordshires (1900?-07), and was their honorary colonel (1912?-32). Military recruitment, training, and inspection consumed his energies in 1914?-18. Gretton was an archetype of the reactionary tory brewer.' [Richard Davenport-Hines in ODNB].
