Aa, Pieter van der (ed.) / Gottfried, Johann Ludwig (falsely attributed to)
The Hague and Leiden, widow of Engelbrecht Boucquet and sons, Jan van der Deyster, and Boudewijn and Pieter van der Aa, 1727. 8 vols. 1mo and folio. With 7 (of 8) engraved frontispieces (lacking that of volume 4), 4 engraved dedications, 117 engraved maps on 61 leaves, 7 engraved plates and 502 engravings in text. Further with 127 (of 128) title-pages (including a general title-page, a title-page to 7 (of 8) volumes, lacking that of volume 4, and 118 for the separate works). Volume 1-3 & 5-8: contemporary mottled calf, gold-tooled spine and board edges; volume 4: modern calf. Large paper copy of the so-called "folio-edition" (although here mostly printed as 1mo) of Van der Aa's voluminous collection of important voyages to the East and West Indies and other countries, undertaken by all European countries, other than the Dutch. Including voyages by Acosta, Balbi, Cabot, Cavendish, Chester, Columbus, Cortes, Coutinho, Da Cunha, Drake, Evesko, Frobisher, Gallonye, Da Gama, Garay, Garcia, Gilbert, Jenkinson, Harcourt, Herberer, Magallanes, Mildenhal and Cartwright, Mouette, Petelin and Andrasko, Raleigh, Saris, De Soto, etc. - The work is falsely attributed on the title-page to Johan Lodewijk Gottfried, by Van der Aa, most likely because he made good money publishing Gottfried's "Chronicle" in 1702. In reality Gottfried had nothing to do with the present work. The work was edited and co-published by Pieter van der Aa, known for his ambitious projects. Where other publishers were primarily concerned about the profits, Van der Aa wanted to publish outstanding books. For the prese … [Click Below for Full Description]

Buddei, Io. Francisci (Johann Franz Buddeus) (Text by); Johann Georg Mentzel (Engraved headpieces by)
Lipsiae (Leipzig): Thomae Fritschii, 1727. First edition. Hardcover. g+ to vg. Octavo (8 1/2 x 7"). [14], 730pp (Vol. 1); [731]-1844, [104]pp (Index), 150pp (Addenda) (Vol. 2). Contemporary full vellum. Publisher's device (a winged horse) on each title page. Engraved headpieces by Johann Georg Mentzel (1675-1730). Decorative tailpieces. Written by German Lutheran divine Johann Franz Buddeus (1667-1729), this first edition of "Isagoge historico-theologica ad theologiam universam" reflects the author's close affinity to pietism and purism: For instance, Buddeus states that the purpose of physics is to explicate the natural phenomena mentioned in the Bible (Vol. 1, Chapter 4, part XXIX). The book also deals with the problems methods, and history of theology in a rather revolutionary way for the time. Considered the most universally accomplished German theologian of his time (Schaff), Buddeus' fields of knowledge embraced all branches of theology, and frequently touched on philosophy, history, and politics. In philosophy he professed an eclecticism which rested on a broad historical foundation; but he recognized in Descartes the originator of a new period, and in attacking the "atheist" Spinoza followed especially the upholders of the law of nature, such as Hugo Grotius, Puffendorf, and Thomasius. His theological position was determined by the tradition of Johannes Musäus at Jena, partly through his close relations with Baier; but on another side he was inclined toward Pietism. In his Biblical criticism he did not get so f … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mention of third edition.contemporary bindings in full brown speckled brown. Back with ornate nerves. Title pieces in red morocco and brown morocco. Headdresses torn off. Together very rubbed. Blunt corners. a book partly detached from volume I. The first volume is dated 1727, the others from 1730. The title and the title are substantially different from the other volumes, although the irons are the same.After the great success of his first books, The History of the Revolutions of Portugal, of Sweden , it was asserted that there was no finer pen in the kingdom to write history, other historians, like Bouhours, but even Madame de Sevigne; Vertot threw himself into his favorite work: The History of the Roman Revolutions . Vertot added nothing to what had been written, did not make any particular inquiries except compilation, and he conceived of Roman history as a great tragedy, such that it was finally seen at that time, and it is easier to grasp in this work that Vertot loved essentially to paint and to tell.Ex-libris Jacques Vieillard.Chez Barois A Paris 1727 In-12 (9,5x16,5cm) (36) 451pp. (18) et (2) 486pp. (21) et (2) 463pp. (17) 3 volumes reliés

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.

Petrus Burmannus, 1668-1741, fu un celebre latinista, professore di latino presso l'Università di Utrecht dal 1696 e Leida dal 1715. Curò edizioni celebri delle opere di Fedro, Orazio, Claudiano, Ovidio, Lucano, e il Poetae Latini minores, Petronio, Quintiliano, Svetonio. Alla fine è aggiunta la celebr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Brunner, Balthassar:
Frankfurt und Leipzig, C. C. Immig, 1727. Gestochene Titelvignette, 3 gefaltete Tabellen, (3 Bl.), 466 (recte 464) S., (5 Bl.) 4°. Pergamentband der Zeit mit handschriftlichem Rückentitel Laehr, Die Literatur der Psychiatrie, Neurologie und Psychologie II, 217-219; Blake 68; vgl. Hirsch/H. I, 738 (zum Verfasser); nicht bei Kreuter, Wellcome, Waller und Osler. - Außerordentlich seltenes Werk, von dem wir einzeln seit 1950 nur ein Exemplar im Handel nachweisen konnten. Das bereits 1617 posthum erschienene Werk wurde offenbar nur in kleinster Auflage publiziert und ist wegen seiner umfangreichen Kapitel über Melancholie und Epilepsie interessant. Nicht in den großen Medizinsammlungen und mit Ausnahme von Laehr auch der Fachgeschichtsschreibung weitgehend unbekannt, daher konnten wir zur Rezeptionsgeschichte nichts weiteres ermitteln. Das Todesjahr des Verfassers gibt Dunckel - abweichend von Hirsch/H. und Jöcher - in Band I seiner "Historisch-kritischen Nachrichten von verstorbenen Gelehrten" mit 1610 statt 1604 an. - Brunner, 1540 in Halle geboren, studierte in Erfurt, war kurze Zeit Professor in Leipzig, unternahm dann längere Reisen durch Spanien, Frankreich, England, Belgien und die Schweiz, war Famulus bei Crato von Krafftheim (dessen Gesamtausgabe wir anbieten), dann angesehener Arzt in seiner Heimat, zuletzt Leibarzt der Anhaltinischen Fürsten. Schmieder in seiner Geschichte der Alchemie (S. 320/321) und Jöcher im Allgemeinen Gelehrten-Lexicon I, 1426 heben das Interesse des Verfassers an der Alchemie hervor, der den Stein der Weisen gesucht habe, 20 Jahre chemische Ver … [Click Below for Full Description]

BOULAINVILLIERS, (H.) DE.
A La Haye & A Amsterdam, Aux dépens de la Compagnie, 1727. 2 volumes. - Together 5 volumes bound in 4. (34), 352 pp.; (2), 324 (misnumbered 224) pp.; (2), 240, (6) pp.; (6), 158 pp.; (2), (1-4), 5-230, (2, table & errata) pp. 12mo. Contemporary marbled calf, spines gilt with raised bands, labels with gilt lettering. First work: Camus 874; Monod, Bibliographie de l'histoire de France, 1057; Conlon 27:348. First edition. Claims the re-establishment of the États-Généraux. The absolutism of the royalty had destructed the feudal system which had assured the people of more freedom. In Boulainvilliers's view, absolutism had destructed not only the freedom of the people, but especially the religious freedom. He claimed that the absolute power of the King should be controlled by the States General. He may be considered as one of the very first historians, who considered government as a science. The above work is considered as the author's main work."He shared the humanitarianism and the somewhat antimercantilistic sentiments of Vauban and Boisguillebert. He agreed (..) that the condition of the masses, particularly that of the peasants, must be improved. In his indifference to, and criticism of, the established religion, he anticipated the philosophes. The power of the state, Boulainvilliers believed, depended upon its having happy and comfortable subjects and a great number of common people - in his opinion, the most useful class of the state and the source of the nation's labor supply and soldiers; upon the existence of respect for the rights and liberties of individuals; and upon … [Click Below for Full Description]

Howes C-826 ("b"): "Bold assertion of the rights of England to the entire gulf region [Ga., Fla., Ala., Miss., and La.] which had been granted to the author's father, with a description based on a residence there. Coxe was the first American Masonic Grand Master. His book first agitated a confederation of the colonies against French aggressions, later adopted as Franklin's 'Albany Plan' and was the first English account of Louisiana." Sabin 17280. Clark Old South I, 68: "This is largely a compilation from various journals to impress the people of England with the great significance of the Carolina region, and to make English officials jealous of its occupation by the French ... [the author] hoped to plant an English colony on the banks of the Mississippi near its mouth and to force the French out of the lower Mississippi." Church 886. European Americana 727/46. Vail 353. Early Coxe family signature on title page, along with the author's date of death and burial place (some burn through from the ink). Very good copy in a lovely new binding.
