        "Origen de los indios de el nuevo mundo e Indias Occidentales, averiguado con discurso de opiniones."

      Madrid: Francisco Martinez Abad. 1729. "Second edition, edited, and brought up to date by Andres Gonzales de Barcia Carballido y Zuniga, who had resided twelve years as a missionary in America. & & Folio, pp. [32], 1, 8-336, [80]; vignette title-p. showing ships approaching a coast, engraved portrait of Thomas Aquinas, 5 small engravings in the text; contemporary and probably original full limp vellum, spine lettered in ms.; nice copy. & & With the letterpress bookplate on the verso of the title-p. of Dr. D. Miguel Tafur (i.e. Miguel Tafur y Zea, 1766-1833), the noted Peruvian medical doctor whose biography is given by Juan Lastres in Vida y obras del Dr. Muguel Tafur (Lima, 1943). One of the earliest compilations concerning the origin of the native American. Garciaís opinion was that the American Indians descended from various races of the old world, including Chinese and Tartars. ""But all his learning on this subject is of less value than the positive facts concerning the native tribes, which he drew partly from his own experiences in the New World, and partly from a MS. work by Juan de Vetanzos (one of the companions of Pizarro, and a man specially skilled in the native languages), which was in the possession of Garcia, and which has never been published. The fifth book of Garciaís work contains the native Indian accounts of their origin, and is divided into sections which treat separately of the various distinct tribes of Mexico and Peru."" Medina IV, 2713; Borba de Moraes I, 346; Sabin, 26567: ""a work of vast erudition. All that has ever been imagined as to the origin of the Americans, and the manner in which this New World was peopled, is gathered here."""

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 On the theoretical plane, La Hire&#39;s treatise was already out of date at the time of its appearance because it ignored Newton&#39;s laws of dynamics...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)..

      Mit 4 gefalt. Kupfertafeln, 4 gefalt. Holzschnitt-Tafeln und 3 Textholzschnitten. 3 Bll., 128 S. Buntpapierumschlag. Graesse, BMP 101. - Erstmals 1704 erschienen. - "Er ist ein wüthender Feind eines gewissen Kreises abergläubischer Anschauungen, wie sie das gewöhnliche, tägliche Leben zu beherrschen pflegen. 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).

      London: James and John Knapton, 1729.. Four volumes. Frontispiece portrait, thirty- six engraved maps by or after Herman Moll (nineteen folding), twenty-seven engraved plates (four folding). 7pp. publisher&#39;s advertisements. Expertly bound to style in paneled calf, the covers with outer double-fillet border in gilt and paneled in blind, spines gilt. General title in first volume with small early repair at foredge. Very good. Provenance: Thos Hill (near contemporary inscription on titlepage of first volume); R.R. Butcher Library (pencil inscription on recto of front free endpaper of first volume). A fine set of the most complete version of these important voyages. Dampier is generally described as the first Englishman to set foot on the Australian continent. This is first collected edition, and the best textually, of Dampier&#39;s voyages. The additional titlepage in the first volume designates this the "7th edition, corrected" of the writings of celebrated British navigator and buccaneer William Dampier. Hill states that the narratives in the second volume are in the fourth edition, those in the third volume are in the third edition, and those in the fourth volume are not designated, although he notes: "Parts II-V of v. 4 are a reprint, with separate title page and paging, of Hacke&#39;s A COLLECTION OF ORIGINAL VOYAGES, London, 1699." Dampier&#39;s first voyage to the Pacific was in 1680, raiding on the Spanish coast of South America, then crossing the Pacific to the East Indies. Throughout the next two decades he travelled extensively in the Pacific, at various times visiting Tierra del Fuego, the west coasts of South and Central America, Guam, the Philippines, the East Indies, China, the Campeche coast, Southeast Asia, and the Caribbean. In 1688, Dampier touched on New Holland, or Australia, for the first time, making a survey of the coast near King Sound. In 1698, after the first volume of his voyages had been published and received great acclaim, the Admiralty gave him a commission as a captain in the Royal Navy and command of the Roebuck. With it he undertook another expedition to Australia, the second British expedition to go there and the first to have that destination as its objective. He explored the south coast of New Guinea, discovered New Britain and Dampier Strait, and explored along the western coast of Australia. Although hampered by illness amongst his crew, he ultimately completed the circumnavigation in 1701. Dampier was the best known, and probably the most intelligent, of the famous group of buccaneers who tormented the Spanish in the South Sea from 1680 to 1720. "This collection of Dampier&#39;s works is considered by many to be the best edition. However, Dampier obviously did not write the whole work...[as it also] includes the narratives of Lionel Wafer and William Funnell as well as the whole book of William Hacke" - Hill. His books were a great success and were frequently reprinted, as well as emulated by some of his less literate companions, often to his disgust. HILL 422. SABIN 18373-18377. NMM 1:92, 93, 95, 96. BORBA DE MORAES, pp.242-43. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 729/69. DNB V, pp.452-57.

        Afbeeldingen der Merkwaardigste Geschiedenissen Van Het Oude en Nieuwe Testament, in Het Koper Geetst Door Den Vermaarden en Kunstryken Jan Luiken, en Met Nieuwe en Leerzame Beschryvingen Opgeheldert (Holy Bible with 62 Copper Engravings)

      Amsterdam: Joh. Covens En Corn. Mortier, 1729. Leather. Very Good/No Dust Jacket. Amsterdam: Joh. Covens En Corn. Mortier, 1729. Leather. Joh. Covens En Corn. Mortier. Folio, late 19th century leather, [viii], 74 + 44 + 15 pages; also, 62 copper engravings by Luyken (many of them double-page), 5 maps and 2 engravings each per page of the last 15 pages. This is the Second Edition as published by Covens and Mortier in 1729 on thick, laid paper. Now offered for your consideration is this 1729 Dutch Bible containing both the Old and New Testaments. A marvelous example of early 18th century Dutch printing, the text of each chapter is nicely illustrated with an engraved Capital letter, the overall quality of the typesetting and distribution of ink solid and pleasing to the eye; however, what really delineates this Bible as special are the 60 double-page copperplate engravings by Jan Luyken (1649-1712). A Dutch poet, illustrator and engraver, Luyken experienced a religious awakening in his 26th year which led him to write moralistic poetry; it also imbued his engravings with a pietistic touch rich with drama, reverence and imagination. Also included are 5 maps, 4 of which are by Luchtenburg. An impressive Bible. Condition notes: Very good. This folio sized Bible, measuring 17 inches by 10 ½ inches, is bound in late 19th century - early 20th century leather; the joints and edges are somewhat rubbed; end pages contemporary to leather. There is 4 inch vertical chip along the fold of plate #9 as well as some discoloration to the same plate (pg. 14) and a 6 inch tear to the bottom of plate #10; plate numbers 37 and 62 are bound incorrectly, and plates 46 & 47 are reversed. The overall tenor of the text, engravings and maps is very good. (religion, art).

        Anonyme Federzeichnung einer barocken Gartenanlage aus dem Veneto, undatiert (um 1720). Braune Tinte und graue Lavierungen, auf festem Büttenpapier; Blattgröße ca. 40 x 32 cm. Sammlerstempel unten in der Mitte. Auf der Rückseite drei weitere Sammlerstempel, davon einer geschwärzt. Zudem moderne Beschriftung in Graphit: "Marco Ricci 1676-1729 Belluno - Venedig", sowie gedruckter Klebezettel: "Marco Ricci 1679 Belluno - Venedig 1729".

      - Zur Darstellung: Die überaus dekorative Federzeichnung zeigt einen wohl konkreten, jedoch bislang nicht zu identifizierenden Garten in Oberitalien, den man am wahrscheinlichsten im Veneto ansiedelt. Die Zeichnung könnte früher einmal rechts und links beschnitten worden sein, denn recht zufällig wirkt der gewählte Ausschnitt. Andererseits hat der Zeichner ohnehin einen ungewöhnlichen Winkel gewählt, fällt der Blick doch nicht entlang der Hauptachse auf das eigentliche Villengebäude, das wir gegenüber dem schmiedeeisernen Gartentor auf der linken Seiten vermuten möchten, sondern quer diagonal über die Parterres hinweg auf den terrassierten Garten mit der Freitreppe und der hohen Gartenmauer, hinter der ein Nebengebäude aufragt. Durch den Standpunkt des Zeichners, der den streng achsial gegliederten Garten also bewusst aus einer Schrägansicht aufnimmt und somit konterkariert, sowie die drei Personen, die sich in dem Garten aufhalten, zwei Gärtner und womöglich der Besitzer der Anlage im Gespräch mit einem von ihnen, erhält das Blatt den Charakter einer heiteren Vedute und weist über die lediglich nüchterne Dokumentation einer Gartenanlage weit hinaus. Der Garten selbst gliedert sich grob betrachtet in eine Parterre- und eine Terrassenzone. Letztere folgt einer seit der Renaissance gebräuchlichen Art und Weise, Hänge zu gliedern und somit für den Gartenraum überhaupt erst zu erschließen. Vor der unteren Terrassenmauer erkennt man dichte strauchartige Gewächse mit kräftigen Stämmen, vielleicht Weinstöcke, die von einem hölzernen Gitter abgeschirmt werden. Auf der darüber liegenden schmalen Terrasse sind flache steinerne Konsolen angebracht, auf denen Pflanzgefäße mit kleinen Bäumchen, vielleicht Zitronenbäumen, platziert wurden. Ähnliche Gefäße stehen um die Parterres herum und auf der schräg verlaufenden niedrigen Gartenmauer am rechten Bildrand. Hinter der zweiten Terrasse, angelehnt an die hohe Gartenmauer, zieht sich eine langgestreckte Pergola. Hölzernes Lattenwerk, steinerne Rundsäulen und gebogene Metallstäbe formen ein Gerüst, das vollständig von dichten und hochaufragenden Weinreben ausgefüllt wird. Im Zentrum kulminiert dieses Gerüst in einem Pavillon mit aufwendiger helmartiger Bekrönung, die ebenfalls vollständig von Rankenwerk durchzogen und ausgefüllt wird. Man hat den Eindruck, als habe der Zeichner vor allem diese Pergolen im Bild festhalten wollen. Im Kontrast zu dieser Terrassierung, einer in der Renaissance verwurzelten und typisch italienischen Lösung, steht die Fläche im Vordergrund mit den Broderieparterres, einem konstitutiven Element des französischen Barockgartens, dessen Erfindung in der zweiten Hälfte des 17. Jhs. eng mit dem Namen von André Le Nôtre verbunden ist. Von Frankreich aus trat es im 18. Jh. seinen Siegeszug nach Deutschland und Italien an. Wohl aus niedrigem Buchs geformt, schlängeln sich die barocken Zierelemente auf einer hellen Kiesfläche. Die Eckpunkte der Figurationen sind durch Bäumchen besetzt. Die Zeichnung legt nahe, dass es hier gleich vier solcher Parterres gab, von denen wir lediglich eines annähernd vollständig dargestellt finden. Denn links der Querachse, auf der der Gärtner arbeitet, dürften sich zwei weitere Parterres erstrecken und unten findet sich angeschnitten eine Wiederholung des oberen Parterres angedeutet. Übrigens wird die Ornamentik der Broderien im Ziergitter des Eingangstores wiederholt. Von der Außenwelt ist der Garten durch Mauern abgegrenzt. Hinter der hohen Mauer im Mittelgrund ragt ein schlichtes Gebäude auf, das allein durch seinen leicht hervortretenden Mittelrisalit einschließlich des Dreiecksgiebels eine Aufwertung erfährt. Seine vom Garten abgesonderte Lage macht es unwahrscheinlich, dass wir es hier mit dem eigentlichen Herrenhaus zu tun haben, auch wenn es auf der Zeichnung einen prominenten Platz einnimmt. Hinter dem Haus erhebt sich ein natürlicher Berghang, der von einzelnen Bäumen spärlich besetzt ist. Es ist dieser Hang, der im Bildhintergrund ungeg

      London, 1729. First edition. Hardcover. Folio. No publisher stated. pp. [24], 182, [5], 184-410, [98]. With two engraved frontispieces, one representing Pope Alexander VI and the other Caesar Borgia (the former was probably etched by the author). A list of subscribers is included in the prelims. Part II contains a separate title page. Bound in period calf boards (rubbed); re-backed preserving later gilt spine. Board corner tips and some small areas along the edges are neatly repaired. Interior pages are generally clean and crisp with minor spotting and smudging; two leaves are mildly age-toned; an occasional corner crease is present. A couple of small tears are professionally sealed. Alexander Gordon (1692?-1754) was Scottish antiquary and occasional opera singer. He wrote on British and classical antiquities. In addition he wrote this biographical / historical work on the life and times of the infamous Pope Alexander VI and his son Cesare Borgia who ruled in northern Italy. Court gossip and intrigue as well as information on the Italian wars of the time and relations with France are all discussed. The appendix includes a selection of various primary source material much of which is in the original Latin. [See DNB and Allibone]. [ESTC T145610; Lowndes p.914].

        New England, New York, New Jersey and Pensilvania

      Herman Moll London:: Herman Moll,. (1729).. Known among cartographic historians as the "Post Map", this is Herman Moll's important 1729 map of New England and the adjacent colonies. Though variants of this map appear as early as 1708, this is the most important of the series due to its thematic focus on the New England, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania postal system. Official postal service emerged in the New England colonies around 1639 when the Massachusetts General Court designated a Boston tavern as the official repository for mail arriving from or departing overseas. In 1673 official postal service between New York and Boston was introduced on a monthly basis but it was not until 1691, with the appointment of a Postmaster General to the colonies, that a centralized postal system evolved. The first post route in the Colonies, between New York and Boston, became known as the Boston Post Road and is today still in use as U.S. Route 1. Moll describes this route in some detail in the lower right quadrant of the map: "The Western Post setts out from Philadelphia every Fryday leaving Letters at Burlington and Pert Amboy and arrives at New York on Sunday night; the distance between Philadelphia and New York being 106 Miles. The Post goes out Eastward every Monday morning from New York, and arrives at Seabrook Thursday noon; being 150 Miles, where the Post from Boston setts out at the same time; the New York Post returning with the Eastern Letters, and the Boston Post with the Western, Bags are dropt at New London, Stommington, Rhode Island, and Bristol. The Post from Boston to Piscataway being 70 Miles leaves Letters at Ipswich, Salem, Marblehead, and New : berry. There are office keept at Burlington, Perth Amboy in New Jersey, New London and Stommington in Connecticott, at Rhode Island, Bristol, Ipswich, Salem, Marblehead, and Newberry, and the 3 Great Offices are at Boston, New York & Philadelphia." (sic) In addition to this map's core details regarding the postal system in America, it also offers additional information on the region including American Indian villages and nations on the west side of the Susquehanna, countless towns and villages, some offshore shoals, and a gross mis- mapping of Lake Champlain. New Jersey is split into East New Jersey and West New Jersey, an archaic distinction dating to a 28 year period between 1674 and 1702. Delaware is conjoined with Pennsylvania. Though Barbara McCorkle reports that this map was published in a number of different atlases and histories, this is an early example from the 1729 first edition of Moll's "Atlas Minor." Source: Moll, H., Atlas minor: or a new and curious set of sixty-two maps&#133; (Thos. and John Bowles, London) 1729. References: Rumsey 5580.049. Phillips (America) p. 500.

A very good copy. First published in 1676 the New Kalendar continued in print until the 1780s but was not issued annually until the early 1730s. For obvious reasons most copies were discarded when the new edition appeared, so that survivals are relatively uncommon. No copy of the 1729 edition is listed in ESTC but a copy is recorded in Trinity College Dublin (COPAC). MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING.

        A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life. Adapted to the State and Condition of all Orders of Christians

      London: Printed for William Innys, at the West End of St. Paul's, 1729 First edition. Contemporary paneled calf, neatly rebacked. Gilt-ruled spine with red morocco label. Octavo. Some light foxing, mostly marginal. A very good copy. It is the Serious Call, a plea for the return to the practice of private individual piety, in an unadorned, lucid and deeply moving style, on which his reputation chiefly stands. Its peculiar force is difficult to convey; authorities as different as Gibbon, Lord Lyttelton and George Whitefield spoke enthusiastically of it. Samuel Johnson attributed to it his first attention to religion. But the most significant testimony is that of John Wesley, who reaped where Law had sown. Writing after they had parted company, he said: 'it will hardly be excelled, if it be equalled, in the English language, either for beauty of expression or for justice and depth of thought'" (Printing and the Mind of Man).

      Halle, Christian Henckel, (1729). - 4to. (4), 18, (2) pp. Papered spine. Considered Callenberg's probably most scholarly work, a Halle disputation about Muslim laws respecting Christians. The respondent was Ludwig Christian Vockerodt, the son of Callenberg's former teacher in Gotha, Gottfried Vockerodt. With numerous notes in Arabic. The German Orientalist and Lutheran professor of theology and philology Johann Heinrich Callenberg (1694-1760) tried to promote conversions among Jews and Muslims. For this purpose he founded (in 1728) the "Institutum Judaicum et Muhammedicum", which also produced oriental-language translations of Christian tracts. - Well preserved.

      Printed by Mr Thomas and Walter Ruddimans, Edinbur 1729 - Rebound Hardcover. Carnegie of Finhaven is famous for his trial for the murder of Charles Lyon, 6th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne, which resulted in the "not guilty" verdict becoming a recognised part of Scottish law and established the right of Scottish juries to judge the whole case and not just the facts - a right known as jury nullification, which endowed Scots with the verdicts : "proven", "not proven" and "not guilty" which remain contentious to this day. A very important trial in the history of the Scottish legal system and a very rare 1st edn. 125pp. 8vo. Tastefully rebound black cloth/gilt title. Browned pp. but in very good condition. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Extremely rare. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Dissertationes scholasticae de S. Joseph, unigeniti filii dei putativo patri, deique genitricis sponso dignissimo: eidem beatissimo patriarchae tutelari suo consecratae

      Mexici: Typis Josephi Bernardi de Hogal, impressoris librorum apud Civitatis Palatium, 1729. 12mo. [14] ff., 219, [1] pp., [2] ff. Peralta (1668&#150;1736), a native of Zumpango, Mexico, was a Jesuit and a professor ("Primario Sacrae Theologiae Professore") in the Society&#39;s College of Sts. Peter and Paul in Mexico City. He was the author of several books, more than one of which begins "Dissertationes scholasticae." The present one, here in the first edition (it was reprinted in Antwerp in 1734) studies predestination and the life of St. Joseph. This is a handsome production from the Hogal press, which is considered one of the finest operating in Mexico in the 18th century. It sports a full-page woodcut of the coat of arms of José de Castorena y Urzúa, the bishop of the Yucatan, and a notably strong, lovely one of St. Joseph and the Infant Christ; neither is signed. Provenance: Marca de fuego of the Mercedarian Colegio de San Migeul de Belen in Mexico City, in upper and lower edges of the book. WorldCat and NUC Pre-1956 combine to locate only five copies of this in the U.S., one of which is incomplete. Medina, Mexico, 3086; Palau 218002; DeBacker-Sommervogel, VI, 480. Contemporary limp vellum with ties. An occasional spot or stain; two short, slim, delicate wormtracks to (in each case) perhaps six leaves, across text but not affecting reading, and a third even shorter, slimmer, entirely marginal.foray in a number of other leaves. A very nice copy.

Originalet "Astro-theology: or, a demonstration of the being and attributes of God" utkom första gången 1715 och översattes till franska av François Bellenger. Den engelska prästen och naturforskaren William Derham (1657-1735) är en viktig representant för den inflytelserika fysikoteologin som försökte bevisa guds existens genom naturens ändamålsenlighet och skapelsens fulländning och skönhet. "Dictionary of scientific biography" skriver "Although works of natural theology such as these seem tedious in style, they do give a useful glimpse of the background of eighteenth-century science in England."

        Novissimum Statutorum ac Venetarum Legum Volumen, Duabus in Partibus

      1729. [Venice, Republic of]. Mocenigo, Alvise, Doge of Venice. Novissimum Statutorum ac Venetarum Legum Volumen, Duabus in Partibus Divisum, Aloysio Mocenico Venetiarum Principi Dicatum. Venice: Ex Typographia Ducali Pinelliana, 1729. [xii], 345; [3], 86, [4] ff., 128 pp. Two parts in one volume, each with separate pagination; Part II preceded by half-title. Both parts preceded by woodcut frontispiece depicting the arms of Venice, dedication in Part I follows large woodcut title-page vignette depicting Lady Justice surrounded by Venetian iconography. Quarto (9-1/4" x 7-3/4"). Later three-quarter vellum over marbled boards, lettering piece to spine, marbled endpapers and edges. Light rubbing to extremities, a few minor scuffs to boards, spine lightly soiled, later owner bookplate to front pastedown. Light toning to text, internally clean. * Only edition. Text in Latin and Italian. Due in part to Europe&#39;s commercial orientation toward the Americas after 1500, Venice was no longer the commercial and political power it used to be. Its legal system, especially its commercial and maritime law, remained influential. This collection encapsulates the state of Venetian law near the end of its existence as an independent Republic. (It would be conquered by Napoleon in 1797, part of the Kingdom of Lombardy-Venetia after Napoleon&#39;s defeat in 1814 and part of the unified Kingdom of Italy in 1866.) OCLC locates 4 copies in North American Law Libraries (Harvard, UC-Berkeley, University of Minnesota, Yale). Graesse, Tresor de Livres Rares et Precieux VI:485.
