        Title in Ottoman Turkish:] Tarih-i seyyah der beyan-i zuhur-i Agvaniyan ve sebeb-i inhidam-i bina-i devlet-i Sahan-i Safeviyan (A Traveller's Chronicle Concerning the Emergence of the Afghans and the Cause of the Collapse of the Safavid Dynasty).

      Istanbul: Dar al-Tiba'ah al-Ma'murah, 1142 ah (1729 ce) - Octavo (215 x 152 mm). Contemporary dark red quarter morocco, marbled sides, catch-title (Tarih-i Agvan) to bottom edge in black ink. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Four Ottoman ownership stamps to ff. 1 and 21, later (1189 AH) ownership inscription to f. 1 by "Ahmad", possibly the owner of the seal directly below; additional inscriptions to f. 66 and verso of final blank. Minor loss to head and foot of spine with short split to head of front joint, earlier leaves with very faint damp-staining to bottom edge and slight finger-marking to bottom corners, very occasional light spotting to margins as usual, minute worm hole to gutter ff. [7]-10 and 72-97, old repair to f. 97v. with no loss of text, neat double incision to fore edge f. 66, ink-smudge to f. [5] r. and margin of f. 39 to no loss, f. 95 misbound between ff. 93 and 94. Overall a nice, crisp copy. A scarce title in a pleasing contemporary binding, this copy bearing several distinct Ottoman ownership seals yet with little real sign of wear. First edition in Turkish (printed with Arabic types) of this eyewitness account of the Afghan invasion of Persia in 1722 by Father Judasz Thaddeus Krusinksi (1675–1756), First published in French as Histoire de la dernière révolution de Perse in Paris, 1728. Krusinski, "the best known of the Polish Jesuits active in Iran" in the early 18th century, lived in Isfahan from 1707 to 1728 and again in the 1740s, serving as court translator, ambassador of French kings Louis XIV and XV, and intermediary between the Safavids and the Papacy (Encyclopaedia Iranica). The Afghan invasion saw the Safavid ruler Shah Sultan Husayn executed and the capital Isfahan sacked, precipitating the eventual downfall of the once-great empire in 1736 following a brief period of Safavid reconquest. Originally composed in Latin, Tarih-i seyyah was translated into Turkish by the Ottoman diplomat Ibrahim Müteferrika and became only the third text to be printed on his new printing press, the first press established under Muslim auspices. Following a long struggle against conservative religious sentiment, Müteferrika was finally granted permission for his project by Sultan Ahmet III in 1729. The first book printed was Kitab-i Lügat-i Vankulu, an Arabic–Persian–Turkish dictionary based on the Sihah of al-Jawhari, with the second being Katib Çelebi's Tühfet ül-kibar fi esfar il-bihar (Concerning Naval Expeditions), followed by the present title in the same year. The press was discontinued in 1742, with the consequence that any such "Turkish incunabula" are uncommon. Burrell 165 for the first edition and 448 for the first in English. Not in Blackmer or Atabey. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Gedruckt bey der Kayserlichen Acadeie der Wissenschafften, St. Petersburg 1729 - Folio (29.5 × 19.5 cm). Folded leaves; paper spine strip; 12 pp. Bilingual title and text in Russian and German in facing columns. Lacking one leaf (pp. 5-6); slightly resized; small paper repairs; moisture stains. First and only printing of a treaty signed between Russia and Persia in February 1729, at Rasht, which was the first agreement "to deal with the sovereignty issues of the Caspian" (Troubled Waters: the Geopolitics of the Caspian, 20). The treaty marks the inability of Russia to retain the rapid conquests made in Persia under Peter the Great. After his death in 1725, a number of treaties regulated the return of territories and the resolution of existing conflicts. In the present treaty, the Russians returned territories in exchange for the mutual right to navigate the region. The treaty was quickly invalidated, however, when the Afghan ruler of Persia, Ashraf Hotak, was overthrown by Nader Shah, who went on to rule as Shah of Persia. No auction records located.

        Polly: An Opera. Being the Second Part of the Beggar's Opera.

      London: Printed for the Author, 1729. 4to, contemporary quarter calf, marbled paper boards, red leather label, gilt rules and lettering. 31 pages of engraved sheet music. The sequel to John Gay's popular Beggar's Opera (1728), but in Polly the characters have moved from the streets and highways of England to the West Indies, a setting Gay uses to ridicule fortune-hunting colonialists and the English colonial system. Polly was sufficiently offensive to the powers-that-be that Lord Chamberlain declared it libelous and banned it from being rehearsed, which Gay writes about in his four-page preface. This is followed by a clever three-page introduction on the nature of sequels written in the form of a dialogue between a poet and actor. Contemporary armorial bookplate of Henry Streatfield on the front paste-down, father of the legendary beauty Sophia Streatfield (1755-1835). The Streatfield library was later sold by W. H. Robinson Ltd. On the front free endpaper is the bookplate of American collector Charles Walker Andrews, who has noted in pencil above the bookplate that he purchased this from Robinson in 1935. Binding a bit worn and stained; some light damp-stains in the text; a very good, large copy.

        Antiquities of Constantinople

      1729. First Edition . [GILLES, Pierre] BALL, John, translator. The Antiquities of Constantinople. With a Description of its Situation, the Conveniencies of its Port, its Publick Buildings, the Statuary, Sculpture, Architecture, and other Curiosites of that City. London: Printed for the Benefit of the Translator, 1729. Octavo, contemporary full paneled calf rebacked retaining old endpapers, raised bands, red morocco spine label. $3000.First edition in English of this beautifully illustrated account of Constantinople, enlarged with an ancient description of the wards of Constantinople, with a copper-engraved frontispiece and title page, 11 copper-engraved maps, plans, and views (three folding), and a copper-engraved vignette, in contemporary paneled calf covers.This work is a translation and enlargement of Pierre Gilles’ two-part work on Constantinople and environs, which was “among the earliest to describe Constantinople and the Thracian Bosporus, regarding accurate and reliable information” (Blackmer 684). Gilles was a prominent humanist, diplomat, and naturalist who accompanied d’Aramon’s embassy to the Porte in 1547. He was tasked with collecting Greek manuscripts and other antiquities for the king of France. This work, however, was the most lasting result of the journey and Gilles stayed far beyond his scheduled visit to complete it. In it, Gilles discusses the city’s history, landscape, architecture, monuments, and markets. He pays special attention to the city’s major building triumphs, frequently analyzing them from both an anthropological and archaeological standpoint, making this an early and important source on Constantinople. “[Gilles] has given us the first circumstantial account of the antiquities of Constantinople and may be considered the founder of Byzantine archeology” (Cox I:122). First published in Latin as De Bosporo Thracio in 1561 and De Topographia Constantinopoleos in 1562, reprinted by Elzevir in 1632. The plates appear here for the first time, supplied by Ball. “This book is beautifully adorned with cuts of the Buildings, the Statuary, and Sculpture of that city” (Cox I:122). Minor marginal tear to upper corner of A5, not affecting text. Occasional minor spotting or soiling to text margins; plates clean and fine, with crisp impressions. A few small flecks of paint to covers. An attractive copy in contemporary paneled calf.

        Monsieur de Thou's History of His Own Time. Translated from the Geneva Edition of 1620. In two volumes.

      London and Newark: Printed by E Say, and sold by W Meadows, B Motte and T Worral, J Stagg, T Jackson - London; and B Farnsworth at Newark, 1729 An extremely rare copy of the English translation of Jacques Auguste de Thou's major historical work, the first books of which appeared in Latin in 1604. M de Thou served both Henri III and Henri IV as a Counsellor of State, and was involved in negotiating the Edict of Nantes. His position was not continued by Marie de Medici, but he did serve in her court. He was determined that his History should be as impartial as possible - a forensic and unbiased approach (exceptional for that time) - so he wrote it in Latin as the then still universal language. It covered the period 1545 - 1608 and was issued in 4 parts. He was uniquely placed to write it and it is still considered to be an important work. The first collected edition was put together in 1620, 3 years after his death in 1617. After that, there were translations into German and then into French. Bernard Wilson, the English translator, was the Vicar of Newark between 1719 and 1772. He had a reasonably wealthy living due to his long term association with Thomas Holles, Duke of Newcastle, and he dedicated Vol I of the translation to him. The second volume is dedicated to John, Duke of Rutland, who offered him further advancement. The 2 volumes cover the period up to 1560, and include M de Thou's Last Will and Testament, a short section on 'The Author's Life' and an account of de Thou's life from his Memoirs, in 6 books. The volumes are in a modern half morocco and buckram binding, with gilt-decorated raised bands and title and volume labels to spine. The bindings show very little wear. Internally there are new endpapers and initial and end blanks. The book was in a library, and there is some evidence of removed stickers to the front endpapers and blanks but this is not obtrusive. There are small circular library stamps to title and end pages and repeated in the top gutter of every 100 pages - not affecting text but sometimes crossing the header. There are some ink library notes to the verso of both title pages. To finish the job, there are stamps only visible on the page edge when the book is closed to the top and bottom page edges. Contents: Vol I - title page 1729; author's last will and testament 2pp; dedication 4pp; de Thou's dedication to Henri IV pp i-xxviii; the author's life pp xxix-xxxii; M Lingelsheim's preface to the Geneva Edition 2pp; translator to reader 2pp; History Books I - XIV pp 1 - 699; errata (with lib stamp); Index 4pp. Vol II - title page 1730; dedication 4pp; The Life of M de Thou from his own memoirs pp i-cxli; History Books XV - XXVI pp 1 - 558; appendix pp 559 - 564; Index pp 565 - 568. Sections have decorative head and tailpieces and initial capitals. The contents are bright with some light speckling at times to the top margin (soot) and occasional marking - sometimes individual small marks, sometimes wider yellowed areas. The paper varies in thickness. Vol I :a number of edge and gutter tears: 4 have old repairs with a tape which has darkened; the remainder have been repaired using acid-free archive tape. There is occasional loss to corners or edges - and one loss including a section of text in the gutter of pp293-4. One ink annotation. Vol II: very few tears; some loss in gutter pp cix-cxi; small burn hole appearing at p227 and affecting pages to 232; mispagination 117 for p 217; couple small ink notes.

Gegen diese zieht er spottend und scheltend zu Felde und seiner redseligen Feindschaft verdanken wir ein wahrhaft unerschöpfliches Register derselben. Aber dabei steckt er selber tief im Aberglauben, sobald derselbe nur eine Art religiöses, wissenschaftliches oder gelehrtes Gewand trägt. So sind die Astrologie und die Chiromantie, die Metoposcopie, der Glaube an Hexen und Zauberei für ihn unumstößlich sicher, sie sind theils Mittel, deren sich das göttliche Wesen zu seiner Offenbarung bedient, theils Mittel des Teufels, verwerflich aber in Wirklichkeit vorhanden" (ADB XXVII, 520).

Not in BL London, BN Paris - "Although passed over by the majority if the historians of mechanics, this work marks a significant step toward the elaboration of a modern manual of practical mechanics, suitable for engineers of various disciplines. On the theoretical plane, La Hire's treatise was already out of date at the time of its appearance because it ignored Newton's laws of dynamics... on the other hand... he furnished useful descriptions and put forth the suggestion following Desargues, of adopting an epicycloidal for gear wheels" (DSB).

Darstellungsgröße 40:27,3 cm, Blattgröße 55:38,3 cm. – Guter Abdruck, im Ganzen nicht ganz frisch und mit kleinen, sorgfältig restaurierten Einrissen in den Rändern. Die Zeichnung, die Le Sueur als Vorlage diente befindet sich heute im Besitz der National Galleries of Scotland. Aus: „Receuil d’estampes d’après les plus beaux tableaux et d’après les plus beaux dessins qui sont en France dans le Cabinet du Roy, dans celuy de M. le Duc d’Orléans et dans l’autre Cabinet. Bd. I (enthält die römische und venetianische Schule). Paris, Impr. Royale, 1729. Nicolas Le Sueur, war der Sohn des Zeichners und Formschneiders Pierre Le Sueur d.Ä. (1639-1716). Er war der Älteste dieser ursprünglich aus Rouen stammenden Künstlerfamilie. Wie sein Vater war er als Formschneider tätig. Bei Nagler heißt es zu diesem Künstler: Nicolas Le Sueur „ brachte es im Formschnitte unter den Künstlern dieses Namens am weitesten.
