Antique map, titled: 'Carte de la Partie Sud des Etats Unis de l'Amerique Septentrionale.' - This map covers the states of Virginia, North and South Carolina, and Georgia in the new United States. All settlement is confined east of the Appalachians with les Cherokees the only note in the otherwise blank region west of the mountains. There are four distance scales located on the left side of the map. Copperplate engraving / etching on hand laid (verge) paper. Description: Source unknown, to be determined.Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Rigobert Bonne' after an anonymous artist. Rigobert Bonne (1727-1795 ) was one of the most important cartographers of the late 18th century. In 1773 he succeeded Jacques Bellin as Royal Cartographer to France in the office of the Hydrographer at the Depôt de la Marine. Working in his official capacity Bonne compiled some of the most detailed and accurate maps of the period. Bonne's work represents an important step in the evolution of the cartographic ideology away from the decorative work of the 17th and early 18th century towards a more detail oriented and practical aesthetic. With regard to the rendering of terrain Bonne maps bear many stylistic similarities to those of his predecessor, Bellin. However, Bonne maps generally abandon such common 18th century decorative features such as hand coloring, elaborate decorative cartouches, and compass roses. While mostly focusing on coastal regions, the work of Bonne is highly regarded for its detail, historical importance, and overall aesthetic appeal. Condition: Good, given age.

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]

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.

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.
