        Plan of the English Commerce

      Defoeís ìUniversal Plan of Commerceî[DEFOE, Daniel]. A Plan of the English Commerce. Being a Compleat Prospect of The Trade of this Nation, as well the Home Trade as the Foreign. In Three Parts. Part I. Containing a View of the present Magnitude of the English Trade, as it respects, 1. The Exportation of our Own Growth and Manufacture. 2. The Importation of Merchants Goods from Abroad. 3. The prodigious Consumption of both at Home. Part II. Containing an Answer to that great and important Question now depending, Whether our Trade, and Especially our Manufactures, are in a declining Condition, or no? Part III. Containing several Proposals entirely New, for Extending and Improving our Trade, and Promoting the Consumption of our Manufactures, in Countries wherewith we have Hitherto had no Commerce...London: Printed for Charles Rivington, 1728.First edition. Octavo. xvi, [6, contents], [2, ads], 368 pp. Decorative woodcut head- and tail-pieces and initials.Early nineteenth-century calf by J. Mackenzie, neatly rebacked to style. Gilt single-rule border on covers, board edges decoratively tooled in gilt, turn-ins decoratively tooled in blind, edges stained red, marbled endpapers. Ink stamp of the Devon & Exeter Institution on verso of title. Lending library label of the Devon and Exeter Institution on front pastedown. An excellent copy. Very scarce. Housed in a full morocco clamshell case.In this work, Defoe contends that the several branches of trade and commerce, from the cottage manufacturer to the merchant, were largely unaware of each other. He proposes a scheme to join these differing branches into a ìuniversal plan of commerce.îìThe Commerce of the World, especially as it is now carried on, is an unbounded Ocean of Business; Trackless and unkown, like the Seas it is managed upon; the Merchant is no more to be followíd in his Adventures, than a Maze or Labyrinth is to be tracíd out without a Clueî (p. vii).He concludes with a plea for colonial expansion: ìMore Colonies then is, without Question, extending the Commerce; it is enlarging the Field of Action; it calls in more Hands to assist in the Publick Prosperity; it employs profitably the unprofitable Numbers of your Poor, and lays a Foundation of an extended Trade, and thereby of a still larger Exportation from Homeî (p. 366).ìThis work is full of information...It is ably written, and contains sundry passages in which the influence of trade and industry in promoting the well-bein of the labouring classes and the public wealth is set in the most striking point of viewî (McCulloch, p. 45).Goldsmithsí 6594.

        The chonology of ancient kingdoms amended

      London: J. Tonson, 1728. <p>Newton, Isaac (1642-1727). The chronology of ancient kingdoms amended. 4to. xiv, [2], 376pp. Engraved vignette and initial on p. iii, 3 folding engraved plates. London: J. Tonson . . . J. Osborn and T. Longman, 1728. 226 x 172 mm. Paneled calf c. 1728, gilt edges, rebacked, corners a little worn. Minor foxing and toning but very good. Owner&#146;s inscription dated 1768 on p. iii.</p><p>First Edition, Thick Paper Issue. Newton&#146;s last work, published posthumously the year after his death. In his final years Newton devoted himself primarily to theological questions, particularly to the reconciliation of biblical chronology with classical history. The Chronology of Ancient Kingdoms Amended, which Newton had worked on since the 1690s, had as its purpose &#147;the establishment of a relationship between the observed movement of the earth with respect to the fixed stars and ancient political events, so that the past might be &#145;predicted&#146;&#151;backwards, so to speak&#148; (Manuel, Newton as Historian, p. 68). &#147;In order to square the chronology of ancient kingdoms with his account of the development and diffusion of arts and of idolatry among the descendants of Noah, [Newton] had found it necessary to lop off the antiquity to which most ancient societies had pretended, and among other things he had cut about four hundred years out of the accepted chronology of Greek history&#148; (Westfall, Never at Rest, p. 805). Newton was thus able to &#147;prove&#148; that the Jews were more ancient than the Greeks, as indicated in biblical chronology. Babson 214.</p>

Andrea Pozzo (1642 ? 1709) was an Italian Jesuit, Baroque painter and architect, decorator, stage designer, and art theoretician. He was best known for his grandiose frescoes using illusionistic technique called quadratura, in which architecture and fancy are intermixed. His masterpiece is the nave ceiling of the Church of Sant'Ignazio in Rome. Through his techniques, he has become one of the most remarkable figures of the Baroque period. He is also noted for the architectural plans of the Ljubljana Cathedral (1700), inspired by the designs of the Jesuit churches Il Gesù and S. Ignazio in Rome. (Wikipedia).

        The History of Japan : giving an account of the antient and present state and government of that empire; of its temples, palaces, castles, and other buildings; of its minerals, trees, plants, animals, birds and fishes; of the chronology and succession of the emperors, ecclesiastical and secular; of the original descent, religions, customs, and manufactures of the natives, and of their trade and commerce with the Dutch and Chinese. Together with a description of the kingdom of Siam

      London: Thomas Woodward and Charles Davis, 1728. Two volumes, folio, with an engraved additional title (dated 1727) and 45 plates and maps, many folding (a couple of clean tears); titles printed in red and black; contemporary panelled calf, spines gilt; neat old repairs to spines. Kaempfer&#39;s handsome and definitive work. An excellent and very attractive copy of this exceptionally important book on Japan. Kaempfer sailed from Batavia via Siam as a physician with the Dutch East India Company and reached Japan in late 1690. Although much of his two-year sojourn was spent on the island of Deshima, to which the Dutch merchants were confined by the strict orders of the Tokugawa regime, he was twice able to accompany the annual Dutch embassy from Nagasaki to the Shogun&#39;s court at Edo (Tokyo). After his death in 1716 Sir Hans Sloane bought his botanical collections and library, including the unpublished manuscript of the History of Japan, which was translated into English by Sloane&#39;s librarian, J.G. Scheuchzer, and published in 1727 under the aegis of the Royal Society. The English edition of Kaempfer&#39;s book is therefore its first appearance in print in any language. The History of Japan was &#39;for more than a century the chief source of Western knowledge of the country. It contains the first biography of Kaempfer, an account of his journey, a history and description of Japan and its fauna, a description of Nagasaki and Deshima; a report on two embassies to Edo with a description of the cities which were visited on the way; and appendixes on tea, Japanese paper, acupuncture, moxa, ambergris, and Japan&#39;s seclusion policy&#39; (DSB). The Second Appendix, present in this issue, recounts the unsuccessful attempt of the English East India Company in 1673 to re-open direct trade with Japan after a lapse of 50 years. This very attractive copy is an example of the first edition, in its second and best issue which has an extra Second Appendix containing &#39;part of an authentick journal of a voyage to Japan, made by the English in the year 1673&#39;. This was not included in the original version of the book issued in 1727. This edition is otherwise a re-issue of the 1727 sheets with new title-pages (dated 1728) which specify the addition of the journal - which has its own title-page, dated 1728, and preface. Both volumes of the present copy have a 1728 title-page; some copies of the edition have a 1727 title-page in the second volume. Here the engraved title to the first volume retains its 1727 date.

"A brief treatise on dancing, containing instructions for the execution of simple pas. There is a short list of French steps with their contemporary Italian equivalents (p. 27), and a brief account of the Menuet (p. 117). The explanations are accompanied with simple stenochoregraphic notations (Feuillet system)." Beaumont "An important book on the dance of the time, giving the names of the steps in French and Italian, and very good descriptions." Derra de Moroda "By publishing this manual for the use of his pupils in Naples, the French trained dancing master Dufort helped disseminate French dance abroad by providing Italian equivalents for French dance terms... Using the dance notation known as chorégraphie, as well as verbal description, he discusses the five positions and problems of coordinating movement with music. He then briefly explains chorégraphie in order to use it further in describing steps... Information on the use of arms, the performance of bows, tracing the floor pattern, and the cultivation of style close this section... The treatise on the minuet is similarly organized. A final section treats briefly the contredanse... and bows other than in dancing..." Schwartz & Schlundt 17

Johann Burkard MENCKEN (1674-1732), Professor für Geschichte an der Universität Leipzig, wurde bekannt als Herausgeber der "Acta Eruditorum", die zugleich auch seinen lebenslangen Kampf gegen die Vielschreiber seiner Zunft anzeigt. Europaweit wurde sein Name bekannt, als er 1713 und zwei Jahre später nochmals seine akademischen Reden gegen die Scharlatanerie der Gebildeten (de charlataneria eruditorum) hielt. Darin geißelte er die Habgier und die Vielschreiberei, sowie die Eitelkeiten seiner Professorenkollegen. Insgesamt galt sein Hauptinteresse, die Geschichte nicht nur im akademischen Leben, sondern auch bei den gebildeten Laien fest zu verankern. Diesem Ziel diente auch sein opus magnum, das ein Sammelband wichtiger und auch seltener historischer Schriften ist. Im ersten Band, es erschienen noch zwei weitere, sind insgesamt 18 Schriften versammelt. Seine großen Sammelwerke sind heute noch wichtige Quellenwerke.

        The Works of Tacitus

      London - Tho. Woodward, 1728. London - Tho. Woodward, 1728 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. One volume of the works of Roman senator and historian, Gaius Cornelius Tacitus. With vignette title page. Containing his Annals, which detail a history of the Roman Empire from the reign of the Emperor Tiberius to the reign of Nero (AD 14-68). The Annals is Tacitus&#39; final work, and modern historians generally consider it his greatest writing. Historian Ronald Mellor considers it Tacitus&#39;s crowning achievement which represents the pinnacle of Roman historical writing. Modern scholars believe that as a Roman senator, Tacitus had access to Acta Senatusthe Roman senate&#39;s recordsthus providing a solid basis for his work. Although Tacitus refers to part of his work as my annals, the title of the work Annals used today was not assigned by Tacitus himself, but derives from its year-by-year structure. Condition: Amateurly rebound in calf. Externally, sound, though with some marks and slight bumping. Internally, firmly bound. Repairs to the front free-endpaper. Front hinge slightly strained. Pages are bright, with just a few scattered instances of foxing. Overall: GOOD..

The explanations are accompanied with simple stenochoregraphic notations (Feuillet system)." Beaumont"An important book on the dance of the time, giving the names of the steps in French and Italian, and very good descriptions." Derra de Moroda"By publishing this manual for the use of his pupils in Naples, the French trained dancing master Dufort helped disseminate French dance abroad by providing Italian equivalents for French dance terms. Using the dance notation known as chorégraphie, as well as verbal description, he discusses the five positions and problems of coordinating movement with music. He then briefly explains chorégraphie in order to use it further in describing steps. Information on the use of arms, the performance of bows, tracing the floor pattern, and the cultivation of style close this section. The treatise on the minuet is similarly organized. A final section treats briefly the contredanse. and bows other than in dancing." Schwartz & Schlundt 17 Octavo. Full contemporary vellum with titling gilt to spine, marbled edges. 1f.

Copperplates (47 full-page numbered but with pl 35 & 37 replaced in good facsimile) + nice large plate of public dissection on TP + 50 large woodcut initials with country & hunting scenes etc. Folio (378x251mm) newer calf with 5 raised bands, spine compartments gilt, gilt rules, black label with gilt titling. Titlepage in red & black XXVIII +79pp +[x] index & publisher&#39;s catalogue + 47 leaves of plates ex collation but numbered in the plate 1-47 (a4 mistakenly bound after b4). Bookplate of Dr.F.A. Sondervorst on marbled endpapers. A clean wide margined copy, no tears, very unobtrusive pale foxing to a few pages, some pages rehinged at gutter, a few with marginal dusting/damp marks but not affecting printed area except in index. Pl.20 minor offsetting from facing text page. As usual without the unnumbered page meant to be cut out and used to rule the scale. Fine thick quality paper, impressions clear & dark, and the binding of plain but sympathetic quality. *A splendid anatomical atlas with few equals. The plates were probably engraved in 1552 by Eustachius in collaboration with Agostino de Musis but only the first few were published in his lifetime. They lay forgotten and lost until rediscovered by Giovanni Maria Lancisi but without any accompanying text. Lancisi wrote text and had them published at Rome in 1714. The accuracy of the design & detail of these plates greatly surpass the woodcut drawings of Vesalius as Eustachius used copperplates which allowed for greater precision. The progress of anatomy might have been accelerated had these plates appeared in the 16th century. Eustachius was considered the most scientific anatomist of his time and unlike Vesalius his plates show a composit of anatomical types based on the study of many cadavers where as Vesalius showed the anatomy of one body. Unique to Eustachius&#39; anatomy was the marginal graduated scale which gave the key to the explanatory text. He also juxtaposed anterior and posterior views (see Garrison & Morton 391, Wellcome II 536, Heirs of Hippocrates 201).

        Traité du nivellement, avec une relation de quelques nivellements faits par ordre du Roy. Et un abrégé de la mesure de la terre. Mis en lumière par les soins de M. de La Hire.

      Paris, Montalant 1728 - In-12 [165 x 92 mm]. Collation : (16), 212, (12) pp., 3 planches h.-t. Veau, dos à nerfs orné, tranches marbrées. (Reliure de l'époque.) Seconde édition. Jean Picard fut chargé par l'Académie des Sciences de mesurer un degré de méridien. Il trouva 57060 toises. Ce résultat, très voisin de la mesure exacte, a été pour la science d'une utilité extraordinaire, car elle permit à Newton de poursuivre ses recherches sur la gravitation universelle, alors qu'il avait été induit en erreur par les mesures défectueuses de Norwood. Cet ouvrage posthume, édité par La Hire contient: -La théorie du nivellement. -La description des instruments. [Picard utilisa pour la première fois des instruments à angles munis de lunettes et de réticules, ce qui devait donner à ses mesures une bien plus grande précision] -Les pratiques du nivellement. -La relation des nivellements de plusieurs endroits. Enfin, La Hire a placé à la fin du volume un abrégé de la "Mesure de la terre" de Jean Picard. Cet ouvrage "n'était entre les mains que de très peu de personnes, n'y en ayant eu qu'un petit nombre d'exemplaires qui avaient été destinés pour faire des présents." Illustrée par de nombreux bois gravés dans le texte et 4 gravures sur cuivre, disposées sur 3 planches hors-texte. Un accroc à la coiffe inférieure et au départ de la charnière avec deux petits manques de peau sur le plat à proximité, bon exemplaire par ailleurs. // You can browse all my books on latude.net
