"Politicum catholicum") und gibt an diese Schrift vollständig "fideliter wiederholt und nachgedruckt" und seine Anmerkungen dazugetan zu haben. Daher nennen manche Bibliographen Johann Daniel Kuttge (d. i. Timotheus Caesarian Basilius) als Autor, ebenfalls biographisch kaum nachzuweisen, d. einige theologische Kleinschriften verfasst hat. - Vergl. Dazu Holzm.-Boh. Pseud 26; Raßmann 19; schon v.

        POEMS ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS

      1727 - BROOME, William. POEMS ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS. London: Bernard Lintot, 1727. Octavo. xiii(3)248pp. First edition. Fine frontispiece portrait engraved by George Vertue. Three pages of publisher's ads. Broome, a country clergyman, contributed the notes to Pope's Iliad (1715-20), and wrote eight of the 24 Books of "Pope's" translation of the Odyssey, published in 1725-6, as well as the Notes. He felt he received insufficient credit or payment for his work, and Samuel Johnson (in Lives of the Poets) said there was "more than coldness" between him and Pope. Facing the first page of text here is Broome's rather caustic "Advertisement:" "The Author has not inserted into this Collection any part of his translation of the Odyssey, published by Mr. Pope: he thought it an Imposition on the Public to swell this volume with Verses taken from a Work that is in the hands of almost every Reader." Johnson quoted a comic verse current at the time: "Pope came off clean with Homer, but they say/ Broome went before and kindly swept the way." Pope lampooned Broome in The Dunciad and Bathos. Johnson called Broome an "excellent versifyer, his lines smooth and sonorous, his diction select and elegant," but admitted that he was not a great poet. Tipped-in on the flyleaf is a description of another copy of this edition from a Sotheby's catalogue of 1870, copied out in longhand.

        [EIGHT EARLY MASSACHUSETTS TRACTS ON VARIOUS SUBJECTS, INCLUDING CURRENCY, MANUFACTURES, EARTHQUAKES, AND RELIGION]

      Boston. 1727-1742.. Eight volumes bound in one. Pagination described below. Half title in first five works. Contemporary calf, ornate blind-tooled border on covers, spine in seven compartments, 20th-century paper label with manuscript caption title. Covers bowed, rubbed, and scuffed. Spine cracked with one- inch chip at head, hinges worn. Old tape repair on verso of one half title. Occasional minute foxing. Later 18th- century ownership inscription on front free endpaper and later title. Despite pronounced wear to binding, this remains a superlative (and unusually ornate) example of mid- 18th- century American bookbinding. In a half morocco and cloth box. An intriguing sammelband of early Boston imprints, the most important of which discuss early New England currency, paper money, and the famed Massachusetts earthquake of 1727. The pamphlets on paper money in the form of "manufactory bills" and the Vans attack on creating paper money backed by bullion in Massachusetts are by far the most important items here. The titles are: 1) Rogers, John: THE PERFECT AND UPRIGHT MAN CHARACTERIZ'D AND RECOMMENDED. A FUNERAL DISCOURSE OCCASIONED BY THE DEATH OF THE HONORABLE JOHN APPLETON.... Boston: J. Draper for D. Henchman, 1739. [2],24pp. Rogers uses the late Rev. Appleton as an example of the just life. Also included here is Nathaniel Rogers' THE CHARACTER, COMMENDATION, AND REWARD OF A FAITHFUL SERVANT OF CHRIST..., with a separate titlepage, though clearly produced as one publication. OCLC locates only seven copies. OCLC 1698386. EVANS 4418. NAIP w027599. 2) THE TESTIMONY AND ADVICE OF AN ASSEMBLY OF PASTORS OF CHURCHES IN NEW-ENGLAND AT A MEETING IN BOSTON, JULY 7, 1743. Boston: S. Kneeland and T. Green, [1743]. 51pp. The pedagogical product of this enthusiastic Great Awakening clergy gathering. EVANS 5136. NAIP w029522. 3) [Vans, Hugh]: SOME OBSERVATIONS ON THE SCHEME PROJECTED FOR EMITTING 60000£. IN BILLS OF A NEW TENOUR TO BE REDEEMED WITH SILVER AND GOLD.... Boston: S. Kneeland and T. Green, 1738. [2],25pp. An extremely early treatise on paper money, written in the form of a letter from a merchant to a friend in the country, sometimes attributed to William Douglass, but now considered the work of Hugh Vans. The paper money debate was an on-going conversation in the colonies prior to the Revolution. As early as 1729, Benjamin Franklin published his MODEST ENQUIRY INTO THE NATURE AND NECESSITY OF A PAPER CURRENCY..., and in 1740, Douglass (better known for his medical tracts) and Vans each published similar works in Boston. In the present tract Vans condemns the proposed plan for two main reasons: the colony is unable to cover its current debts, and the fluctuating values of silver and gold make it unlikely the currency would bear value in an international market. Vans' tract is particularly notable for the detailed description he provides of the proposed scheme. A good account of the currency debate in colonial Massachusetts. OCLC locates five copies.

Draper, 1742. 16pp. A caution to those who seek knowledge outside that gleaned through the church. A Puritanical reinforcement of the scriptural passage reminding wise men that "you do not know what you think you know." Extremely rare. OCLC locates only two copies. OCLC 46293031. NAIP w027894. EVANS 4991. 5) Swift, John: A SERMON PREACH'D AT BOSTON BEFORE THE GREAT AND GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE PROVINCE OF MASSACHUSETTS=BAY IN NEW- ENGLAND.... Boston: B. Green, 1732. [2],25pp. A scarce election sermon. OCLC 16680689. EVANS 3607. NAIP w029216. 6) A LETTER TO THE MERCHANT IN LONDON, TO WHOM IS DIRECTED A PRINTED LETTER RELATING TO THE MANUFACTORY UNDERTAKING.... [Boston]: Printed for the Public Good, 1741. 28pp. The author's letter to a London merchant in response to a proposed plan to produce new "manufactory bills" describes these three fundamental pillars of the colonial economy: currency, industry, and trade. What led to the writing of this pamphlet was the founding of the Manufactory Company, an enterprise to manufacture textiles, begun in 1740, which had engendered arguments about interest rates, stocks, currency, and credit. The author responds to criticism that the paper currency in the colonies is "confused," and cites the circulation of New Hampshire and Rhode Island notes as evidence to the contrary. He continues by asserting that recognition of these legal tenders is essential to promote ongoing ship construction and other manufactures, and that to wait for bills to be used specifically to settle industrial debts is ridiculous. The overall thrust of his argument is that colonial currency must be validated in Great Britain and the colonies for manufactures to continue apace; no new manufactory bills are needed. This work was evidently missed by Rink, who does list two works (a broadside and a four-page pamphlet) relating to the Manufactory Company (see Rink 3264, 3265). Those 1740 pieces recorded by Rink are the earliest American publications listed relating to manufactures. OCLC locates only three copies. OCLC 17180513. KRESS 4566 (imperfect). EVANS 4739. NAIP w013336. 7) Homes, William: PROPOSALS OF SOME THINGS TO BE DONE IN OUR ADMINISTRING [sic] ECCLESIASTICAL GOVERNMENT.... Boston: B. Gray, 1732. [2],iv,36pp. An influential treatise on church reform by this prolific author. OCLC 13042288. EVANS 3553. NAIP w028000. 8) Foxcroft, Thomas: THE VOICE OF THE LORD FROM THE DEEP PLACES OF THE EARTH. A SERMON...THREE WEEKS AFTER THE EARTHQUAKE. Boston: S. Gerrish, 1727. [2],52pp. This sermon contains one of the best contemporary descriptions of the famous earthquake that shook New England in November 1727: "It was on the night after the Lord's Day (Octob. 29.) a little more than half an hour past Ten, that the first and great Shake was felt: - when the Heavens were most serene, the Atmosphere in a perfect Calm, and there had been no generally observed Presages of any such Event. Some say, Before they were sensible of the Shock, they saw flashes of Light glance their Windows, and others observ'd their Dogs give a sudden bark, as when affrighted. But before they could look about them, to know the meaning of these things, they heard first a gentle murmur, like a small ruffling Wind, and then a more noisy Rumbling, as of Thunder at some Distance: which seem'd to approach nigher, and grew louder, till it roared terribly; and then we felt our Houses totter and reel, with the tremulous Motion and Heaving of the Earth, as if they would tumble down into Ruins. It's tho't the greatest Earthquake this Country ever knew...." Recent seismographic scholarship has focused much on early New England earthquakes in an effort to better predict their future occurrence. OCLC 11048419. EVANS 2874. NAIP w002453. In all, a diverse and engaging collection, offering an attractive juxtaposition of colonial New England religion, economics, and struggle with the natural world. EVANS 4418, 5136, 4308, 4991, 3607, 4739, 3553, 2874.

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.

        Essai Philosophique concernant L'Entendement Humain, ou l'on montre quelle est L'etendu de nos Connoissances certaines, et la Maniere dont nous y parvenons. Traduit.de L'Anglois par M.Coste. Seconde Edition revue, corrigée, & augmentée de quelque Additions importantes de l'Auteur qui n'ont paru qu'apres sa mort, et de quelques Remarques du Traducteur.

      Pierre Mortier., Amsterdam. 1727 - 4to. Contemporary full vellum, lettered in ink to spine, engraved portrait and a large engraved vignette. (8),XLVI,595 pp. + Table des Matieres. The vellum a little mottled and rubbed, some pages some-what browned. From the library of Stephanos Carathèodory with his engraved bookplate and his gilt monogram on the spine. Stephanos Carathéodory, was an Ottoman Greek who had studied law in Berlin and then served as secretary in the Ottoman embassies in Berlin, Stockholm and Vienna. Stephanos had married Despina Petrocochino, who came from a Greek family of businessmen who had settled in Marseille. At the time of his son Constantin's birth, the family were in Berlin since Stephanos had been appointed there two years earlier as First Secretary to the Ottoman Legation. The Carathéodory family, originally from Bosnochori or Vyssa, was well established and respected in Constantinople, and its members held many important government positions. Stephanos Carathèodory was the father of Constantin Carathéodory (or Constantine Karatheodori) (Greek: ???sta?t???? ?a?a?e?d???) (13 September 1873 – 2 February 1950) was a Greek mathematician. He made significant contributions to the theory of functions of a real variable, the calculus of variations, and measure theory. His work also includes important results in conformal representations and in the theory of boundary correspondence. In 1909, Carathéodory pioneered the Axiomatic Formulation of Thermodynamics along a purely geometrical approach. Known correspondence of Carathéodory-Einstein can be seen as facsimile in Einstein Archives Online (11 items). Three letters concern mathematics and these are printed in vol.8 of Einstein's Collected Works (Princeton Univ. Press 1987) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Memoria istorica sopra l'avvenuto in Roma in occasione della Bolla Pretiosus Ben. XIII.

      [Rom, um 1727.] - Eigenh. Manuskript. 4 SS. 275:203 mm. Lose in Pappmappe. Folio. Vom Verfasser unterdrückt ("dentro le mani") und ausschließlich für die Nachwelt verfaßt, bringt dieses anscheinend unveröffentlichte Manuskript eine erbitterte Aufzählung der Reaktionen innerhalb der Kirche auf die umstrittenste Bulle Benedikt XIII., die "Bulla Pretiosus". Benedikt (1724-30), selbst Dominikaner, erlaubte damit den Dominikanern, die Augustinische Gnadendoktrin zu predigen. Besonders interessant ist das Manuskript deswegen, weil es offensichtlich auf Informationen fußt, die v. Kardinal Giambattista Salerni (1670-1729) herrühren, einem Favoriten Benedikts, der den polnischen König August zum Katholizismus bekehrt hatte. Zur Zeit der Abfassung des Manuskripts war der Jesuit Turani (auch Turano), päpstlicher Visitator in Sizilien u. Verfasser zahlreicher Abhandlungen (vgl. de Backer/S. VIII, 2709ff. u. L. Cardella, Memorie storiche de' cardinali VII, 190f.). - Aus der Sammlung Sir Thomas Phillipps (ex Ms. 7532). [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Chronica do muito alto, e muito esclarecido principe D. Affonso Henriques primeiro Rey de Portugal ?.

      Lisboa Occidental, Officina Ferreyriana, 1727 [colophon: 1726]. - (12 ll.), 95, (1) pp. Folio, contemporary limp vellum with remnants of thong ties, vertical manuscript title on spine in contemporary hand. Date "1727" in ink, erased but faintly visible in lower blank margin of title page. Faint stain on final leaf, but overall fresh and in fine condition. Unidentified brand consisting of the initials "S" and "F" in upper and lower edges of text block. ---- FIRST EDITION, second issue of these important chronicles of the first six kings of Portugal, who reigned from 1128 to 1325. They were first issued together in 1726, each with a separate half-title, title-page in red and black with woodcut arms, large woodcut initials and head- and tail-pieces, and a two-column format. According to Innocêncio, the only change for the second issue was in the date of the title-page. Each chronicle was copied from the original manuscript in the Torre do Tombo.Such chronicles are one of the most notable forms of Portuguese prose in the fifteenth century. Ruy de Pina (ca. 1440-1523?), like his predecessor Fernão Lopes, held concurrently the positions of keeper of the archives and royal chronicler; as such, he made substantial revisions to Lopes' accounts of the first six kings, for which he is often condemned. Southey, however, states that "Ruy de Pina might have been called a chronicler of first-rate merit if Fernam Lopes had never written ? But though coming immediately after that incomparable writer, Ruy de Pina still appears an excellent historian, and far superior to all who followed him" (Aikin, ed., @General Biography [1813] VIII, 173). Bell finds Pina "possessed of an excellent plain style, which only becomes flowery on occasion . . . Pina relates his story straight-forwardly, almost in the form of annals ? The glow of Fernam Lopez is absent, but Pina none the less deserves to be accounted an able and impartial historian" (Bell p. 89).Duarte Galvão (ca. 1445-1517), a friend of Afonso de Albuquerque, was a much less critical historian than Ruy de Pina. He died in the Arabian Sea, on his way to visit Ethiopia as ambassador. Galvão's son Antonio is famous for his vivid account of the voyages of discovery, @Tratado dos descobrimentos antigos, e modernos, 1563.---- Innocêncio II, 208; VII, 190: calling in the second work for (16 ll.), 60 pp.; in the fourth for 8 preliminary leaves; in the fifth for only 6 preliminary leaves. Pinto de Mattos (1970) pp. 317-8, 502.

        TRAVELS INTO SEVERAL REMOTE NATIONS OF THE WORLD. In Four Parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of several Ships. To which are prefix'd, Several Copies of Verses Explanatory and Commendatory; never before printed

      London: For Benj. Motte, 1727, 1726. 2 volumes. A very interesting set with fine provenance. The Coleridge family copy. First edition, Teerink&#146;s B issue of Vol. II dated 1726 and the Second edition of Vol. I, formatted, sized and in presentation as the firsts and published within just a few months of the first editions and set from the first issue of the first edition (the A edition). This is the first edition to include the "Verses," which had been separately printed in March of 1727. They were compressed into twenty pages and inserted here by the publisher after the title and before the text. This is also one of the earliest issues of the second edition, with the portrait found in the first editions and in only some copies of the second. Portrait frontispiece, 6 maps and plates. 8vo, full calf in contemporary style, lettered in gilt and elaborately tooled in gilt on the spines with panel designs incorporated within raised bands gilt ruled and stopped, the covers with 3 gilt ruled panels incorporating corner tools surrounding a central panel gilt. i-ii, [xx], iii-xii, 148, [x],164; [1] ads, [vi],155, [viii],199. An especially attractive copy of this increasingly scarce title. The calf remains in bright and excellent condition, the textblocks and engravings, sound, clean, crisp and unpressed. RARE EARLY ISSUE OF ONE OF THE GREAT WORKS IN THE HISTORY OF WORLD LITERATURE. THE COLERIDGE FAMILY COPY. INSCRIBED BY THE GREAT POET&#146;S NEPHEW AND SON-IN-LAW HENRY N. COLERIDGE, BY F.G. COLERIDGE AND ALSO BY HIS GRANDDAUGHTER EDITH COLERIDGE. A SPECIAL COPY WITH WONDERFUL PROVENANCE.<br> Copies with fine provenance are regrettably uncommon, and this copy remains a fine example of the book in its original aspect and with bindings in proper contemporary style. This edition was the first to include the five Verses (1. To Quinbus Flestrim. 2. The Lamentation. 3. To Mr. Lemuel Gulliver. 4. Mary Gulliver To Capt. Lemuel Gulliver. 5. The Words of the King of Brobdingnag.) which did not appear in the first impressions of late 1726 ).<br> "Gulliver&#39;s Travels" is a biting political satire ingeniously styled after the many narratives of travel and exploration popular at the time and which Swift had read in the library of his employer, Sir William Temple. And though most satire, especially political satire, is quickly rendered unintelligible or uninteresting with the passage of time, Swift endowed his story with so much imagination that it has never passed out of the canon of classics in English literature.

Die beiden ersten Italienaufenthalte in den Jahren 1754-1757 und 1758-1766 brachten entscheidende künstlerische Impulse sowie die Verbindung zu zahlreichen potenziellen Auftraggebern. 1766 ließ sie sich in England nieder, wo sie zahlreiche Porträtaufträge von Hof und Adel erhielt. Nach der Heirat mit dem Maler A. Zucchi (1726-1795) siedelte sie 1782 nach Rom über, wo sie ebenfalls bald zu einer der gefeiertsten Künstlerinnen ihrer Zeit avancierte. Auch für die deutschen Romreisenden war ihr Atelier eine wichtiger Treffpunkt, insbesondere für den Weimarer Kreis um Goethe, Herder, die sie beide porträtierte, und Herzogin Anna Amalia von Sachsen-Weimar. Neben ihrer Porträttätigkeit betrieb Angelika Kauffmann ebenso erfolgreich die Historienmalerei. So führte sie Aufträge u.a. für Kaiser Joseph II. und für das russische Herrscherhaus aus. Bereits 1762 wurde sie Ehrenmitglied der Accademia Bologna und 1765 ordentliches Mitglied der Accademia di San Luca zu Rom. Zudem beteiligte sie sich 1768 an der Gründung der Royal Academy; gemeinsam mit Mary Moser (1744-1819), einer der berühmtesten Malerinnen Englands, gehörte sie zu deren einzigen weiblichen Mitgliedern.

        JUNE 26, 1727 A MERE FIFTEEN DAYS AFTER THE DEATH OF HER FATHER IN LAW KING GEORGE I CAROLINE OF ANSBACH EXERTS HER NEW AUTHORITY

      England 1727 - On offer is an exceptional rare ancient document with an original handwritten signature of Queen Caroline of Ansbach, consort to King George II; partial document with a very nice, large, 5 inch signature of the Queen across the top. Document cut is 8 x 8 inches, repairs lower left, else a scarce signature. Caroline of Ansbach (later Queen Caroline; Wilhelmina Charlotte Caroline; 1 March 1683 - 20 November 1737) was the Queen Consort of George II. Caroline's mind far outstripped George's. As a young woman, she corresponded with Gottfried Leibniz, the intellectual colossus who was courtier and factotum to the House of Hanover. She also helped initiate The Leibniz-Clarke Correspondence, arguably the most important of all 18th-century philosophy of physics discussions, which is still widely read. Caroline became Queen on the death of her father-in-law in 1727 on June 11 - this document is penned a mere 15 days later. This letter, to paraphrase, is a demand from the newly minted Guardian of the Kingdom instructing them to service and payment as if by order of the King. In the course of the next few years, she and her husband fought a constant battle against their eldest son, Frederick, Prince of Wales, who had been left behind in Germany when they came to England. Queen Caroline held a powerful position; she was made Guardian of the Kingdom of Great Britain, and His Majesty's Lieutenant within the same during His Majesty's absence, thus acting as regent when her husband was in Hanover. It is also worth noting that she was co-heiress to Sayn-Altenkirchen through her mother, whose mother Johanette reigned as Countess of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn-Altenkirchen, but ultimately never inherited it. She died of complications following a rupture of the womb on 20 November 1737, and was buried at Westminster Abbey. Handel composed an elaborate 10-section anthem for the occasion, "The Ways of Zion do Mourn; Funeral Anthem for Queen Caroline". The King had arranged for a pair of matching coffins with removable sides, so that when he followed her to the grave (twenty-three years later), they could lie together again. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Vegetable Staticks: Or, An Account of some Statical Experiments on the Sap in Vegetables: Being an Essay towards a Natural History of Vegetation. Also, a Specimen of an Attempt to Analyse the Air, By a great Variety of Chymio-Statical Experiments

      19 engraved plates. 4 p.l., ii-vii, [2], 376 pp. 8vo, cont. calf (expertly rejointed), double gilt fillet round sides, spine gilt, red morocco lettering pieces on spine. London: W.& J. Innys, 1727. [with]:-- . Statical Essays: containing Haemastaticks; or, an Account of some Hydraulick and Hydrostatical Experiments made on the Blood and Blood-Vessels of Animals...To which is added, an Appendix, containing Observations and Experiments relating to several Subjects in the first Volume...With an Index to both Volumes. xxii, [26], 361, [23] pp. 8vo, cont. calf (upper joint with a tiny split at head), double gilt fillet round sides, spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. London: W. Innvs, R. Manby, & T. Woodward, 1733. First editions and a very fine, fresh, and crisp set in matching bindings; these are great classics of experimental science. This set belonged to the great biologist Abraham Trembley (1710-84), who is best known for his pioneer studies of hydra; he has been called "the father of experimental zoology." He has signed the title-page at the foot of Vol. I (along with the maiden name of his wife, Strassen). In the first volume, Hales "studied the movement of sap in plants and discovered what is now known as root pressure. He measured the amount of water lost by plants through evaporation and related this to the amount of water present in a given area of soil in which the plants were growing. He estimated rain and dewfall in this connexion, measured the rate of growth of shoots and leaves, and investigated the influence of light on plants. He experimented on gases and found that they were obtainable from plants by dry distillation. He was the first to realize that carbon dioxide was supplied to plants by the air and formed a vital part of the plant&#39;s food supply. These experiments led the way to those of Ingenhousz and de Saussure, while his ideas on combustion and respiration facilitated the discoveries of Black, Lavoisier and Priestley... "The second volume contains the studies in blood pressure which make Hales one of the founders of modern experimental physiology. The application of the principle of the pressure-gauge or manometer enabled him to measure blood pressure during the contraction of the heart. He computed the circulation rate and estimated the velocity of the blood in the veins, arteries and capillary vessels and by showing that the capillary vessels are liable to constriction and dilation he made an important contribution both to the study of physiology and the practice of the physician of today...Hales&#39;s work marked the greatest advance in the physiology of the circulation between Harvey and the introduction of the mercury manometer and other instruments for the measurement of blood pressure by J. L. M. Poiseuille in 1828."-Printing & the Mind of Man 189. Uniformly bound sets of first editions are of great rarity. &#10087; I & II: Horblit 45a & b. I: Dibner, Heralds of Science, 26. II: Garrison-Morton 765-"the single greatest contribution to our knowledge of the vascular system after Harvey, and led to the development of the blood-pressure measuring instruments now in universal use." .
