First edition of Schwarz’ history of Pomerania, a second was printed in 1734.Albert Georg von Schwarz (1687–1755) was professor of history and philosophy at the University of Greifswald and wrote several works on Pomerania and its history. Historia finium principatus Rugiæ deals with the history of Rügen from the 11th-century to the end of the 17th-century, "sub regibus Sveciæ". Rügen belonged to Sweden from the Peace pf Westphalia 1648 to 1815. The book has a printed dedication to the Swedish Governor-General in Pomerania (and Rügen) Johan August Meyerfeldt. Together with the posthumously printed first edition of Bugenhagen’s history of Pomerania. A supplement (11 pp) was published to Bugenhagen, but is – as here – often missing. The reformator Johannes Bugenhagen, by Luther called "Doctor Pomeranus", (1485–1558) was a close friend of Martin Luther and introduced the Protestant Reformation in the Duchy of Pomerania – and also in Denmark – in the early 16th century. He was born in Wollin and educated in Greifswald. He later moved to Wittenberg and become one of Luther’s closest associates, and was a part of the team that translated the bible, and he was among the first to become a "Protestant doctor" of theology. He returned to Greifswald in 1539 and reformed the university to a protestant university, and he wrote several new church orders (Kirchenordnungen) for the northern German towns and Duchies, and for Denmark. Bugenhagen wrote his history of Pomerania, the first of its kind, already in 1517–18, but it remained unpublished until this edition by professor Jacob Henrich von Balthasar in 1728. Christian Ketelhot (c. 1492–1546) and six other monks introduced the Lutheran reformation in Stralsund in 1523, and the 200 years anniversary was celebrated in 1723. Langemak contains the first publication of "Apologie Ketelhots". (Zit. nach "Centralantikvariatet, catalogue 80 POMMERN")

        Monumentum sive Columbarium libertorum et servorum Liviae Augustae et Caearum Romae deductum in Via Appia . Anno 1726. Ab Antonio Francisco Gorio presbytero Baptisterii Florentini descriptum, et XX. Aere incisis Tabulis illustratum adjectis notis clariss. V. Antonii Mariae Salvinii.

      Typis Regiae Celsitudinis apud Tartinium et Franchium, 1727. in-4° (340x240 mm); leg. moderna in mezza pelle e tela ai piatti, con titolo in oro al tassello colorato in rosso, dorso liscio, tagli spruzzati di colore rosso; pp. XXXVI + 254 + (2); bellissime incisioni calcografiche al frontespizio, in corrispondenza di testate, capilettera e finali; numerosissime riproduzioni a stampa in b.n. nel testo raffiguranti epigrafi ed iscrizioni, incise su monumenti o lapidi, descritte nel testo; 21 tavole incise, di cui 1 tav. f.t. in corrispondenza della pag. XXV e 20 tavv. in fondo, di cui alcune doppie e ripiegate; caratteri rossi e neri al frontespizio. Prima edizione e una delle prime opere pubblicate dal grande archeologo Antonio Francesco Gori (1691-1757). Opera di pregio e di particolare interesse archeolgico, in cui l'A. descrive, indaga e illustra il "Colombario" (monumento funebre), scoperto sulla Via Appia nel 1726, eretto per lo schiavo e i servi di Livia Drusilla (Julia Augusta) (58 a.C. - 29 d.C.), madre di Tiberio, seconda moglie di Augusto. Il Colombario, una tomba comune e deposito per le urne, conteneva le ceneri dei morti (liberi e schiavi) della famiglia di Livia. Le incisioni alle testate ed ai finali dell'opera illustrano gemme antiche ed altri preziosi reperti di piccola scala, provenienti da collezioni contemporanee. Le belle tavole mostrano il Colombario, un piano, le sale di sepoltura con una miriade di nicchie lungo le pareti, una serie di sarcofagi romani decorati, e altre antichità funerarie ritrovate in quel luogo. Ogni tavola è dedicata ad un mecenate influente, tra i quali Joseph Smith e Sir Thomas Dereham. La scoperta del Colombario aveva anche catturato l'attenzione dell'allora direttore delle antichità di Roma, Francesco Bianchini, che ha pubblicato le sue scoperte nel libro "Camera ed iscrizioni sepolcrali ... della casa d'Augusto", che è apparso nello stesso anno. Rif.: IT\ICCU\VEAE\002437. OCLC, 23645736. Cicognara 3750; Rosetti, Rome, 5464; Borroni 8100. Cond.: Opera completa, in ottime condizioni generali, con carta che canta e con rari difetti peraltro di lieve entità (leggera macchia d'umido alle prime cinque carte, non interessante il testo; a pag. 9 mancanza di una piccola porzione di angolo non interessante il testo; a pag. 49 macchie d'inchiostro blu non interessanti il testo; le carte delle tavv.

Hardcover, with 21 engraved plates (13 double-page), 3 engraved tail-pieces, 2 engraved head-pieces, 3 engraved initials, many woodcuts of funerary inscriptions in the text, title-page printed in red and black and with large engraved vignette; a very good, large, clean and crisp copy recently re-bound in quarter vellum and cloth, spine with gilt lettered red painted label, red speckled edges. First edition and one of the earliest works published by the great antiquary A.F. Gori (1691-1757). He describes, investigates and illustrates the "Columbarium" (funeral monument) at the Via Appia, discovered on the Via Appia in 1726. It was erected for the slave and servants of Livia Drusilla (Julia Augusta) (58 BC - 29 AD), mother of Tiberius, 2nd wife of Augustus. The Columbarium, a communal tomb and repository for urns, contained the ashes of dead men (free and slaves) from the household of Livia. The work is sumptuously produced with fine head- and tail-pieces incorporating ancient gems and other small-scale antiquities from contemporary collections. The fine plates show the Columbarium, a plan, the burial halls with its myriad niches lining the walls, a number of fine decorated Roman sarcophagi, and other funerary antiquities discovered there. Each plate is dedicated to an influential patron, among them Joseph Smith and Sir Thomas Dereham.The discovery of the Columbarium also ca

        Conjugal Lewdness: or, Matrimonial Whoredom

      London: Printed for T. Warner, 1727. First edition. Bound in contemporary full speckled calf with gilt rules, rebacked to style with original spine labels retained. Marbled end papers, all edges gilt, a Fine copy overall. With the bookplate of Henry Francis Readhead Yorke on the front paste-down. Extremely rare with the first issue title page, reissued as: "A Treatise Concerning The Use and Abuse of the Marriage Bed" a few months later. Last copy at auction (Christies 1995) brought $920 for the second issue; last copy with first issue title page offered in 1969. A critique of contemporary marriage practices, Defoe's text argues that men and women degrade the institution when they join together for mercenary reasons such as sex, social position, or economic stability. Wedding for these reasons leads to matrimonial whoredom rather than proper and holy matrimony. From the start, Defoe is adamant in defining marriage as companionate and equal, and in this way he lays critical groundwork for the women's rights movements of the next century. "The great Duty between the Man and his Wife, I take to consist in that of Love, in the Government of Affection...the Obligation is reciprocal, 'tis drawing in an equal Yoke; Love knows no superior or inferior, no imperious Command on one hand, no reluctant Subjection on the other...This is Matrimony in its just appointed meaning, whatever Notions our fashionable People may have of it.".

        Lettres de Monsieur Antoine Arnauld Docteur de Sorbonne.

      - A Nancy, aux dépens de Joseph Nicolaï [i.e. en Hollande], 1727-1743. 9 tomes reliés en 4 volumes in-8, demi-vélin à coins de l'époque, dos lisses titrés à la plume, tranches rouges. Edition originale de la correspondance du Grand Arnauld, donnée par Jacques Fouillou, diacre licencié de la Sorbonne, qui se retira en Hollande auprès de Pasquier Quesnel. Exceptionnel exemplaire complet du rare 9e volume et de son supplément en pagination séparée ; ces deux dernières parties parurent seize ans après les 8 premiers volumes. Cette volumineuse correspondance constitue l’une des sources fondamentales pour l’histoire intellectuelle de la période qui s’étend de 1640 à 1694, date de la mort l’auteur. « Le grand Arnauld n’a laissé ni mémoires ni autobiographie; sa correspondance est donc d’une importance capitale » (‘Sources de l’Histoire de France’, II, p. 266, n°1032). L’adresse de Nancy est fictive. Donnée comme imprimée à Amsterdam par Weller ('Falsche Druckorte’, p. 89), les parties 1 à 8 ont plus probablement été imprimées à Utrecht par Corneille Guillaume Le Febvre. Le tome IX et son supplément sans doute en France. (Colonia, ‘Dictionnaire des Livres jansénistes’, II, 414. Willaert, ‘Bibliotheca Janseniana Belgica’, 9609).

      Amsterdam Michel Charles Le Céne 1727 - Two volumes in one folio (32.5 x 21 cm). Half-title, title, [32] pp., 560 columns on [280] pp., with engraved portrait of the author, 12 folding engraved maps, 19 folding and 2 full-page engraved plates, and 40 engravings in text; half-title, title, 565-1108 columns on [272], [21] pp. table and privilege, with 8 folding engraved plates and 19 engravings in text -- in all 29 engraved plates, 12 engraved maps, an engraved portrait and 59 engravings in text; uniform browning to some quires and a couple of plates, a folding plate a bit frayed at external edge. Contemporary brown calf, spine with raised bands with decorative ornaments in compartments, two morocco labels with gilt lettering, red speckled edges; slightly rubbed, joints repaired. A RICHLY ILLUSTRATED EDITION OF OLEARIUS' CELEBRATED TRAVEL ACCOUNT, translated 70 years before by Abraham Wicquefort and edited by Van der Aa; from the collection of one of the most important families of the Belgian nobility. Olearius (Adam Oehlschlaeger, 1603-71) travelled to Ispahan on the Duke of Holstein's train during the Duke's official visit to the Tsar and the King of Persia; this was the first German expedition to Persia. "The head of the [Diplomatic] Mission was one Otto Brugman who according to Olearius was a boor and an idiot. [.] Brugman seems to have insulted every official along the way, molested Armenian women and heaped abuse on his subordinates. [.] Brugman came to a sad ending. He was executed on 5 May 1640 for adultery. Olearius, who had a most unpleasant stay in Persia, comments on many aspects of Persian life and what he witnessed [.] The ambassador and the author had an audience with Shah Safi whom he described as humourless. The author was probably unaware that Shah Safi was drunk most of the time" (Ghani). Olearius's account greatly influenced European opinion of Russia and Persia in the 17th and 18th centuries. The work is of great cartographic importance, particulary for its large map of the river Volga. The illustrations include a large folding plate of Riga, and fine views of Tver, Danzig, Moscow, Kazan, Samara, Bagdad and Ispahan, among many others. Atabey 884 (missing a leaf and with an engraved title from Van der Aa's 1719 edition); Boucher de la Richarderie I, 187 (wrong date); Brunet IV, 178; Ghani 286; Ulyaninskiy 3949.

Historiated headpieces, decorative initials and endpieces. Title page of the Matthew Gospel with publisher's device on title page.

Done into English, with additional notes. Numb. I (to be continu'd Monthly). The 256 page introductory essay describes at length the author's knowledge of ancient Jewish and non-Jewish sources. They explain their understanding of Devine wisdom as inspiration and truth, both in the life and time of Jesus and in their own day. The French edition was published in Amsterdam in 1718, translated and annotated by Isaac de Beausobre and Jacques Lentfant. I. de Beausobre (1659-1738), a French Protestant, migrated to Berlin in 1694, where he became chaplain to the King of Prussia, and counsellor of the royal Consistory. J. Lenfant (1661-1728) was pastor of the French Protestant church at Berlin and chaplain to the King (DM 3808). Beausobre was best known for his history of Manichaeism and Lenfant for his many works on church history. According to Thoams Thornton this edition distinguishes itself from other early translations of the Luther Bible in that it marks the supplementary words with considerable care. The english translation was done by Jeremiah Batley and Nonconformist minister Samuel Chandler (Steven DeRose, List of English Bible Versions, Translations, and Paraphrases).

After becoming the second sultan in the Alaouite dynasty in 1672, he fought a series of battles to persuade the Ottoman Turks to respect Moroccan independence and captured Tangier and other important seaports from the Spanish and English, earning himself the nickname "The Warrior King."The prologue gives details of Muley Ismaïl's ancestry and his actions, which included the murder of thousands, heavy taxes, the acquisition of hundreds of concubines and the siring of hundreds of children, and his transfer of the capital to Meknes, where he was building a huge new city and royal complex. The testament (ff. 2v-4v) includes provisions for his slaves, concubines, children, Christian slaves, the Franciscans at Meknes, counterfeiters, thieves, vagabonds, prostitutes, and Jews. At the end is a glossary of Arabic terms such as alcaçova, bamarkan, janezes, and xarife.*** Innocêncio IV, 347: giving the date as 1727. Gonçalves Rodrigues, A Tradução em Portugal 557.

Bookplates of Sir Henry Allen Johnson/ Bart. K.W. Best edition, large paper, edited with commentary on the technical military events by Folard, a French officer, and translated from the Greek by Vincent Thuillier (1685-1735). While at once a history of the Roman Republic conquests and battles during the period 264-146 BC, it is also a study of military science. A biography of Polybius opens the text in vol. I. The work is richly illustrated with 126 engravings, including maps and formations of the armies. Among the maps is the route of Hannibal through the Alps. The set is beautifully bound for a patron with means. "... Dom Vincent Thuillier (1685-1736), ... produced a French translation of the whole of Polybius at the request of an eager strategist, the Chevalier de Folard, who had been inspired with an interest in the art of war by reading the Commentaries of Caesar. The Chevalier's commentary on Polybius, which accompanied the Benedictine monk's translation, included so many personal reflections on his military contemporaries, that the first volume alone was allowed to be published in France (1727), while the remainder saw the light in Holland." - John E. Sandys, A History of Classical Scholarship, II, p. 389. "The substance of Polybius' work is based on historical information and conveys his role as a historian. His Histories starts in 264 BC and finishes in 146 BC. He mainly discusses the years in which ancient Rome rose to superpower status from 220 BC to 167 BC, describing Rome's efforts in subduing its arch-enemy, Carthage, and thereby becoming the dominant Mediterranean force. Books I through V of The Histories are the introduction for the years during his lifetime, describing the politics in each powerful nation, including ancient Greece and Egypt. In Book VI, Polybius describes the way of the Romans; he discusses the powers of the different parts of the republic, as well as the rights of the plebeian. He describes the First and Second Punic Wars. Polybius concludes the Romans are the pre-eminent power because they maintain customs and traditions which promote a deep desire for noble acts, a love of virtue, piety towards parents and elders, and a fear of the gods. He also chronicled are the conflicts between Hannibal [see map v. IV, p. 90] and Publius Cornelius Scipio Africanus such as the Battle of Ticinus, the Battle of the Trebia, the Siege of Saguntum, the Battle of Lilybaeum, and the Battle of Rhone Crossing. In Book XII, Polybius discusses the worth of Timaeus' account of the same period of history. He asserts Timaeus' point of view is inaccurate, invalid, and biased in favor of Rome. Therefore, Polybius's Histories is also useful in analyzing the different Hellenistic versions of history and of use as a credible illustration of actual events during the Hellenistic period." - Wikip. PROVENANCE: Sir Henry Allen Johnson (1748-1835), 1st Baronet, was an Irish general in the British Army. We is said to have served in the West Indies, then in American, being preset at the surrender at York Town in October, 1781, then he led a command in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.

The collection consists largely of material prepared in connection with Vitringa's public disputations" (For more information, see: Charles K.

About the author: Campegius Vitringa (1659-1722) was a Dutch Protestant theologian and Hebraist. A follower of Johannes Cocceius,Vitringa was a supporter of prophetic theology. He was educated at the universities of Franeker and Leiden, and became professor of Oriental languages at the former in 1681. When locating prophetic outcomes, he would associate events to the near rather than the far-off future, placing a distinct focus on the period of the Maccabees (2nd Century BC). Like Joseph Mede (1586-1638), Vitringa believed wholeheartedly that the Millennium was yet to come, but did not expect any immediate changes. He relegated the end of the time to a remote future and strongly emphasized the concept of New Jerusalem (From Wikipedia).

Alden (signature and booklabel) Early printing of the charter and laws of Massachusetts Bay. An unsophisticated copy of this early and important compilation of the Acts and Laws of the Province of Massachusetts. This example bound with a continuously-paginated but separately issued printing of the session laws, extending the work to November 1727. As the 17th century editions of the laws are virtually unobtainable, the early 18th century editions, like the present, as desirable. The present 1726 edition noted for the inclusion here for the first time of the newly adopted modification to the Charter, King Georges "Explanatory Charter" (pp. 13-14), whereby the position of the Governor was further strengthened: he was given sole power to adjourn the House of Representatives, and the right to veto the House's choice of their Speaker.

Title-page of volume I with some minor darkening. Overall a beautiful set. Gulliver's Travels, to use the popular title, is one of the greatest satires in the English language--or any language, for that matter. It was an immediate success, which accounts in part for its bibliographical complexity, and has been hailed as a book that "would last as long as the language, because it described the vices of man in all nations" (D.N.B.). "Gulliver's Travels has given Swift an immortality beyond temporary fame...All those who had been fascinated by the realism and vivid detail of Defoe's Robinson Crusoe were captivated again, even though they knew that Gulliver must be fiction. The brilliance and thoroughness with which his logic and invention work out the picquancies of scale involved by the giant human among the Lilliputians, and then by a minikin Gulliver among the Brobdingnagians, ran away with the author's original intention. Gulliver's Travels has achieved the final apotheosis of a satirical fable, but it has also become a tale for children. For every edition designed for the reader with an eye to the historical background, twenty have appeared, abridged or adapted, for readers who care nothing for the satire and enjoy it as a first-class story" (Printing and the Mind of Man). Grolier, 100 English, 42. Hubbard, pp. 15-17. Printing and the Mind of Man 185. Rothschild 2104. Teerink.
