        Bibliotheca Menckeniana, quae Autores praecipue Veteres Graecos et Lat. Historiae item Literariae, Eccl. et Civilis, Antiquitatum ac Rei Nummariae scriptores, Philologos, Oratores, Poetas et Codices MSS. complectitur

      - Engraved frontis. port. of J.B. Mencke. Title printed in red & black. 8 p.l. (incl. frontis.), 876 pp., [82] leaves. Thick 8vo, orig. limp boards (occasional minor foxing), uncut. Leipzig, J.F. Gleditsch & Son, 1727. Second edition, much enlarged (1st ed.: 1723) and a very lovely copy in original state; this was a very influential catalogue and was considered in its time to be the model of a universal bibliography. The Menckeniana is a catalogue of a specialized library particularly interesting to students of history and the history of learning. It was open to the public. The library was created by Otto Mencke (1644-1707), professor of moral philosophy at Leipzig University and founder of the Acta Eruditorum, the first great German scholarly journal. Mencke bequeathed the library to his son Johann Burckhard (1674-1732), professor of history at the same institution. The first edition of the Menckeniana was exhausted in two years, suggesting how important the catalogue was considered by other scholars. In the Preface to the second and larger edition of 1727 Mencken writes about serving scholars and complains about the difficulty of recovering books that had been lent. There is no suggestion at the time that he contemplated the sale of his library, but within a year he issued small priced catalogues and within five years he had disposed of his books. As we can see, an owner’s catalogue can be an incidental means of selling a library. The largest part of the library was purchased in 1730 by Bünau and the remainder was auctioned in 1732. The catalogue contains one of the earliest instances of a frontispiece portrait in a library catalogue. The final leaves contain an author index, one of the earliest examples found in a private library catalogue. A very fine copy in original state. ? Folter 528.

        Retained manuscript copy of an important letter written in French to the King of Sardinia reporting at length of his meeting with King George II and further meetings with English diplomats.

      Londres 21 Juillet 1727 - Folio, written in one neat hand, 9 pages with 3 integral blank pages, final page docketed, has been folded, signed at end by the Count. An important letter written by Count Seyssel d'Aix, Ambassador to London of the King of Sardinia (Victor Amadeus II of Savoy), reporting at length on his meeting with George II only a month after his accession to the throne. The letter goes on to describe a meeting with Secretary of State Viscount Townshend who, remarkably, encourages Sardinia to annex the Austrian-held town of Vigevano in Northern Italy with Townshend implying that British military support would deter any Austrian reaction. This is important evidence of the serious differences of opinion in England concerning the policy to be adopted towards Austria at this time, with Townshend appearing to advocate a strike by Sardinia against Austria- advice for which there is no sense of either royal approval or of Sardinia taking heed. Townshend retired in 1730 after opposing improved relations with Austria, thus removing himself as the final obstacle to the sealing of the Anglo-Austrian Alliance which became the centrepiece of George II's foreign policy. The Kingdom of Sardina at this time included Savoy, the Piedmont and Nice. Vigevano was later ceded to Sardinia by the 1743 Treaty of Worms. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      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.

      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.

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]
