[HALLE, Johann Samuel].
For Halle and the printed editions: Nissen BBI supp. 772nb; Stafleu & Cowen 2296; Stiftung Botanik 314; not in Hunt. The complete set of 16 original watercolour drawings made by the Berlin botanist Johann Samuel Halle (1727-1810) for the first volume of his standard work on German poisonous plants: Die deutsche Giftpflanzen, Berlin, Joachim Pauli, 1784. They probably also served as models for the publisher's colourists. All are flowering plants and the drawings show flowers, leaves, stems, and sometimes roots, seeds or fruits, sometimes in a single drawing of the entire plant and sometimes with a separate detail drawing or drawings. The series includes belladonna (deadly nightshade), digitalis (common foxglove) and arum. Nine of the manuscript plate numbers match those in the printed editions, but seven must have been changed during production.With Halle's complete original drawings for volume 1, we include a copy of both volumes of what is normally called the third edition (as it says on the title-page of volume 1), printed from the plates of the first editions of 1784 (volume 1: the 16 plates made from the present drawings) and 1793 (volume 2: 8 plates).The brown and occasional dark blue watercolours have left a brown shadow visible on the back of the leaves, while at least some of the greens have left the paper whiter than the unpainted areas. All drawings and the printed book in very good condition. The book's binding is slightly worn but still good.

Marbled end papers, all edges stained red, a Fine copy overall. With the bookplate of Henry B.H. Beaufoy, the famed hot-air balloonist and Royal Society bibliophile, on the front paste-down. Internally fresh and unmarked, measuring 190 x 127mm and collating vi, [2], 406: complete, with pages 382-383 misnumbered as 362-363 as noted by ESTC. Released only a few months after the first issue title brought controversy and scandal. The first issue title page last appeared at auction in 1969, while the present issue last appeared over 20 years ago at Christies in 1995. 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 Notion … [Click Below for Full Description]

LOCKE, John
London: for Arthur Bettesworth; Edmund Parker; John Pemberton; and Edward Symon, 1727. 1727 Works of John Locke Human Understanding Philosophy 3v FOLIO Edward FinchAn extremely rare and valuable 1727 printing of the complete works of John Locke. Published in three volumes, this set includes his most important works such as 'Essay Concerning Human Understanding' and 'Thoughts Concerning Education'.'An Essay Concerning Human Understanding' is one of John Locke's most important and well-known works. First appearing in 1689, this landmark work covers the foundation of human knowledge in which he describes what would become the term 'tabula rasa' - birth of a blank slate. Written in four separate sections, each book contains a substantial focus such as philosophical knowledge is gained and not innate, or the importance of words, or discovering the limit of human knowledge.According to the 'Printing and the Mind of Man',"Locke's first task was to ascertain 'the original certainty and extent of human knowledge' and, excluding 'the physical consideration of the mind, to show how far it can comprehend the universe'. His conclusion is that though knowledge must necessarily fall short of complete comprehension, it can at least be 'sufficient'; enough to convince us that we are not at the mercy of pure chance, and to some extent control our own destinyItem number: #8329Price: $1500LOCKE, JohnThe works of John Locke.

Mouillure sur le plat supérieur du tome II (noirci). 3 coins émoussés.Memoires essentiellement historiques, le marquis de Montglat se met très rarement en scène, recueillant soigneusement les faits de son temps, depuis 1635 jusqu'à 1668 ; bien que les memoires fournissent de détails militaires (campagnes entre la France et l'Autriche), Montglat s'attache à déjouer les mécanismes de la cour ; les troubles de la Fronde y sont habilement décrits et avec bien plus d'impartialité que dans tous les mémoires du temps (Retz et consorts). La préface qui recommande le livre est du père Bougeant, littérateur et historien jésuite fort considéré, qui s'appliqua à éditer très consciencieusement ces mémoires. *** [English translation available upon request.

Taxation; France
1727. The Dreaded Gabelle [Taxation]. [France]. Compilation de l'Ordonnance de Louis XIV, Roy de France et de Navarre, Donnee au Mois de Mai 1680, Sur le Fait des Gabelles: Avec les Edits, Declarations, Lettres Patentes, Arrets et Reglemens, Tant du Conseil, que de la Cour des Comptes, Aides et Finances de Normandie, Intervenus sur Cette Matiere, Jusqu'a Present: Ainsi qu'il est Explique dans l'Avertissement Suivant. Rouen: Chez Jean-B. Besongne le Fils, 1727. [lx], 671, [27] pp. Octavo (6-3/4" x 4"). Contemporary calf, gilt spine with raised bands and lettering piece, edges rouged. Light rubbing to boards, moderate rubbing to extremities, small chip to head of spine, rear joint starting at foot, corners bumped and somewhat worn, front hinge partially cracked. Light toning to text, light edgewear to preliminaries, faint staining to their lower corners, tiny hole to Leaf Vuiii (pp. 655-666) with minor loss to text. * The gabelle was a very unpopular French tax on salt, an essential commodity for cooking, food preservation, cheese making and raising livestock. First imposed during the mid-14th century, it existed, with brief lapses and revisions, until 1946. The tax was especially comprehensive and rigorous in the version decreed by Louis XIV in 1680. The Compilation is a handbook that discusses each article of the gabelle and the many amendments and exemptions it accrued by 1727. It would have been useful to anyone looking for loopholes when dealing with this tax. OCLC locates 6 copies, 3 in North America, 1 in a law library (Harvard). Not in the British Museum Catalogue.

Stolberg-Stolberg, Friedrich Leopold Graf zu, Schriftsteller (1750-1819).
An "Monsieur de Luc lecteur de S. Mté la Reine de la Grande Bretagne à Windsor en Angleterre". Diese Adresse ist durchgestrichen und die neue von anderer Hand auf das Adressfeld geschrieben: "J A Deluc Esq. at Miss Burges Ashfield ... Devon". Jean André Deluc (auch de Luc; 1727-1817), Geologe, Mineraloge und Meteorologe aus Genf, war 1773 Vorleser und Physiklehrer der engl. Königin in London, wo Lichtenberg ihn kennenlernte. 1776 und 1786 lebte er in Göttingen. Ende 1797 wurde er dort zum Honorarprofessor ernannt, trat die Stelle jedoch nie an. Er war bekannt mit dem niederl. Philosophen Hemsterhuis, der Fürstin Gallitzin, Sophie von La Roche und dem sog. "Kreis von Münster", dem auch Stolberg angehörte. In der Hauskapelle der Fürstin Gallitzin in Münster war Stolberg mit seiner Frau Pfingsten 1800 zum kath. Glauben übergetreten. - Stolberg schreibt dem "très chèr et très respectable ami", dass er auf Grund der Kriegswirren erst jetzt auf dessen Brief vom 6. Oktober 1806 antworten könne, da der Postverkehr zwischen Großbritannien und dem Kontinent gestört sei. Diesen Brief schicke er jetzt über Hamburg. Dann behandelt er ausführlich religiöse Fragen: "Je ne me serr jamais de l'expression religion naturelle, le mot de religion supposant une révélation, soit vraye ou fausse. Je croix que tout ce que la raison, laissée à elle seule, peut voir avec certitude, c'est l'existence de Dieu, manifestée par l'existence de la nature, et par l'ordre admirable qui s'y trouve [...]" Dann berichtet er von der Geburt seiner Tochter am 12. April. Er habe nun 14 lebende Kinder, von denen 12 z … [Click Below for Full Description]

Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World Unknown, Capt Lemuel Gulliver 1727 N/A : London 8" by 5" [6] 118pp, [8] 159pp SUMMARY A scarce copy of the famous pretended third volume to Gulliver's travels. Illustrated,Leather Binding,Very Scarce Overall Condition: Very Good This book weighs 0.5 KG when packed UK Postage: £ 3.99 US Postage: £ 15.99 EU Postage: £ 13.99 European Postage: £ 14.99 Asia Postage: £ 18.99 Worldwide Postage: £ 19.99 DESCRIPTION Two parts, bound as one. Collated: Complete, with frontispiece and half title, and decorative head and tail pieces. Printed the year after the first edition, this volume is one of the best known spurious editions of the extended adventures of Gulliver. Purporting to be a third volume of Gulliver's travels, the work appeared in 1727, unattributed to a publisher. The volume has two parts, 'A Second Voyage to Brobdingnag' and 'A Voyage to Sevarambia' and was ultimately a poor imitation of Swift's original work, borrowing heavily from a French work 'L'Histoire des Severambes.' In his Memoirs of Jonathan Swift, Sir Walter Scott referred to this work as 'the most impudent combination of piracy and forgery that ever occurred in the literary world' and 'a mere bookseller's catch-penny' of 'little genius'. Regardless of Scott's poor opinion, the work is a fascinating piece of literary history, particularly to a collector of works relating to Swift and his most famous creation.

Kaempfer Engelbert / Scheuchzer Jon Gaspar
1727. "Rara e importante pianta della città di Tokjo, pubblicata nell'opera The History of Japan, edita a Londra, in 2 volumi, nel 1727. Sotto questo titolo venne dato alle stampe il manoscritto inedito del medico, viaggiatore e scrittore tedesco Engelbert Kaempfer (1651-1716), il cui titolo originale era ""Heutiges Japan"". Alla sua morte, i manoscritti inediti vennero acquistati da Sir Hans Sloane, noto collezinista scozzese, che incaricò il suo bibliotecario svizzero, John Gaspar Scheuchzer, di tradurlo in inglese. Ne seguì una traduzione olandese del 1729, due francesi: in due volumi del 1729 e in 3 volumi nel 1732. La traduzione in tedesco, dalla prima inglese, apparve nel 1777. L'opera, non solo era la più voluminosa rispetto alle altre pubblicate, ma per la precisione della trattazione, le numerose e originali fonti utilizzate e presentate - incluse le mappe e le vedute raccolte da Kaempfer -divenne subito in Europa un riferimento imprescindibile per la conoscenza del Giappone. Acquaforte, usuali pieghe di carta, lieve e uniforme brunitura, nel complesso in ottime condizioni." Very rare and important historical plan of Tokjo, published in 1727 as part of The History of Japan, by Kaempfer - Sheuchzer. Engelbert Kaempfer (1651-1716) traveled to Russia, Persia, India, South-East Asia, and Japan between 1683 and 1693. His writings were the chief source for European knowledge about Japan: Amœnitatum exoticarum politicophysicomedicarum fasciculi V, published in 1712, is especially important for medical observations and the first extensive description of Japanese plants - a … [Click Below for Full Description]
