        Manuscript Document, signed ("A. Hamilton"), being a stipulation in a legal case "in the Common Pleas of Philad."

      Philadelphia, 1730. 8 lines in ink. 3-3/4 x 8 inches. Trimmed from a larger document, dampstained. In white linen chemise. Peter Zenger's Lawyer: "the most formidable trial attorney of his time" "In the Common Pleas at Philad. September 1730,. Sarah Griscom v Richard Crookshank ? by consent of parties the matter in controversy is referred to Thomas Bourne, Peter Bayntun and James Mackey or any two of them who are to audit and make report of their doings to the next court." Hamilton (1676-1741) was a colonial lawyer who settled in Philadelphia sometime around 1715. In 1717, he was appointed attorney general of Pennsylvania; in 1720 he became a member of the provincial council. Hamilton spent 1724 and 1725 in England on business for the proprietors, and he played an important role negotiations that ultimately led to the settlement of the boundary dispute with Maryland. He returned to Philadelphia in 1726, at which point he became increasingly involved in public affairs. In 1727 he was appointed master of the rolls, recorder of Philadelphia, and prothonotary of the supreme court. In October of that same year he was elected to the assembly, representing Bucks County, and two years later he was elected Speaker of the assembly, an office he held until his retirement in 1739 except for the year 1733, when he was not a member. "Hamilton's independence and integrity won him the confidence of all factions in the assembly. On one occasion at least he was elected to the Speakership unanimously. Most of the measures passed during his Speakership dealt with fiscal and administrative matters, with one notable exception. In 1730 the assembly passed a law for the relief of insolvent debtors, a sensible and progressive measure that became a model for similar legislation in other colonies. Prior to 1729 the assembly had no regular meeting place, and Hamilton played a leading role in providing it with its own building. He not only purchased the land but designed and personally supervised the construction of the building later known as Independence Hall ? The loss of court records makes an objective analysis of Hamilton's legal career impossible, but to his contemporaries he was a towering eminence, the most formidable trial attorney of his time. His defense of Zenger did not change the law of seditious libel or free the colonial press from the threat of prosecution, but it did have a powerful effect on the political consciousness of Americans" - ANB Hamilton will forever be remembered, however, as the lawyer who successfully defended John Peter Zenger against all odds, in the most important freedom of the press trial in colonial America. His victory is the origin of the slogan "Get a Philadelphia lawyer." His autographs are rare.

'Joseph' Gay (as such he signs the preface, although on the title is is coyly described as 'Mr Gay') was a pseudonym more commonly assigned to J.D. Breval, who published several works under this name.

        The Hibernian Patriot: Being a Collection of the Drapier's Letters to the People of Ireland, concerning Mr Wood's Brass Half-Pence Together with Considerations on the Attempt made to pass that Coin And Reasons for the People of Ireland's refusing it To which are added, Poems and Songs relating to the same Subject

      Printed at Dublin. London: Reprinted and Sold by A. Moor..., 1730. First London edition. [8], 264 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Contemporary calf, rebacked, red morocco spine label. Upper joint cracked; interior fine. "...do I become a Slave in six hours by crossing the Channel?" Swift's pseudonymous letters were first issued separately in 1824, then collected first by the Dublin edition of 1725 under the title "Fraud Detected..."; this is the first London edition. In 1722, the English Parliament granted to one William Wood, mine-owner and iron-monger, the right to coin the extravagant sum of £100,000 in copper half-pence. Swift was outraged at what he perceived not only as a swindle to advance the interests of a particular moneyed interest, but also as one more example of the monstrous tyranny exercised by England over the Irish. In the persona of a humble shopkeeper, Swift attacked the proposal on several sound economic grounds, and pushed his conclusions to their logical and absurd consequences. Having calculated the read (as opposed to the nominal) value of Wood's half-pence, and taking it for granted that bad money drives out good, Swift concludes hilariously that a lady going out shopping will need to be "followed by a Car loaded with Mr. Wood's money," and that a banker will need twelve hundred horse to carry the cash he needs in his bank. But there is also a thunderously Swiftian appeal to freedom: "Were not the people of Ireland born as free as those of England? How have they foreited their Freedom? Is not their Parliament as fair a Representative of the People, as that of England? And hath not their Privy Council as great or a greater share in the Administration of publick Affairs? Are they not subjects of the same King? Does not the same Sun shine over them? And have they not the same God for their Protector? Am I a Free-Man in England, and do I become a Slave in six hours by crossing the Channel?" Swift's "Drapier" urges a boycott of Wood's coins upon his countrymen: "If a Madman should come to my Shop with a Handful of Dirt raked out of the Kennel, and offer it in payment for Ten Yards of Stuff, I would Pity or Laugh at him, or, if his Behaviour deserved it, kick him out of my Doors. And if Mr. Wood comes to demand any Gold or Silver, or Commodities for which I have payed my Gold and Silver, in Exchange for his Trash, can he deserve or expect better treatment?" Swift's publication fanned the flames of controversy both in Ireland and England; and his victory was complete when by the end of August 1725, Wood's grant was withdrawn. "Precisely to what extent Swift had been instrumental in bringing it about can never be assessed. It is certain that he had many able helpers, as it is clear that the populace gave him pre-eminence, so that for the rest of his life he was the people's idol..." (Dobrée, English Literature in the Early Nineteenth Century 1700-1740, p. 439).

        Ars sanandi et curandi. Sammelband mit vier medizinischen Traktaten. 4 Werke in 1 Band.

      Offenbach, König, bzw. Paris, Horthemel, 1730. Format: 8°.. . Mit gestochenem Frontispiz. Titel in Rot und Schwarz gedruckt.. Honiggelber Pergamentband der Zeit mit goldgeprägtem Rückentitel oxidiert, leicht angestaubt, kaum fleckig.. 4 Werke in 1 Band. Erste Ausgaben.. *** Erste Ausgaben. Seltener Sammelband mit vier Schriften des 1659 in Ansbach geborenen und 1734 in Berlin gestorbenen Mediziners und Chemikers Georg Ernst Stahl, der 1687 Hofarzt des Herzogs Johann Ernst von Sachsen-Weimar und 1716 Leibarzt des Preußenkönigs Friedrich Wilhelm I. wurde. Als Mediziner war Stahl ein wichtiger Vorläufer der Psychosomatik, warnte vor der Überbewertung rein anatomischer, physikalischer und chemischer Prozesse bei der Krankheitserforschung und -behandlung. Ausgehend von einem "Unbewussten", das sowohl auf die Psyche wie auch den Körper einwirkt, wurde er zu einem wichtigen Vorläufer Sigmund Freuds: Die Seele baue den Körper fort, lehrte er. Da alle Bewegungen und Veränderungen ihren Sitz in der Seele haben, so folgerte Stahl, müssten auch alle Krankheiten letztendlich seelischen Ursprungs sein. Er erkannte die Nützlichkeit des Fiebers als Abwehr-Reaktion des Körpers auf Infektionen. Der vorliegende Sammelband enthält eine Schrift des Mediziners Gideon Harvey (1636-1702), des Leibarztes des englischen Königs gegen den Gebrauch des Chinin und die Entgegnungsschrift Stahls (vgl. Hirsch-Hübotter III, 79). Es folgen Stahls Forschungsergebnisse über die Krampfadern und das dem Sammelband stets beigegebene Literaturverzeichnis medizinischer Schriften mit Preisangaben. I. Georg Ernst Stahl. Sileni Alcibiadis i. e. Ars sanandi. 2 Bl., 312 S. - II. Gideon Harvey. Ars curandi morbos expectatione item de vanitatibus, dolis & mendaciis medicorum. 5 Bl., 246 S. - III.

        [DIORAMA]. [PEEPSHOW]. [KULLISENTHEATER]. Seasons Cycle ("Jahreszeiten-Zyklus")

      Augsburg: Martin Engelbrecht, n.d. [ca. 1730-1750]. VERY GOOD. Suite of 7 hand-colored cut-out engravings mounted on card and attached at the outer corners by linen string (ca. 220 x 180 mm), the first being the proscenium "arch" (mounted on a contemporary sheet printed in Dutch). The following 6 engravings are numbered 170-175. In excellent condition, suitable for exhibition and study A rare early 18th-century 3-D peepshow (or Kullisentheater) by Martin Engelbrecht, circa 1730-1750, being ONE OF THE EARLIEST PAPER THEATERS IN HISTORY, cited by photographers and cinematographers for their early optical effects and appreciated as an aid to creating dramatic perspective on film. * Our diorama presents the Four Seasons in synoptic view behind a proscenium "arch." All of the engraving in our suite are heightened in full contemporary coloring. The suite is seen through a richly decorated rococo proscenium arch with flowers, luscious grapes, fruit trees and vines; the second image focuses on planting trees and courtship; the third and fourth images depict the threshing and stacking of the grain; in the fifth the apples and grapes are selected and wine is made. The sixth print shows a desolate, deserted winter scene, while the final print presents a merry skating party on a frozen pond. The present suite is distinguished by the numerous decorative figures, such as a pretty flower child who picks a colorful bouquet in the meadow; the pair of relaxing farmers in the field, and more. The diorama has been attached together by linen string; when viewed vertically the panels move with dizzying effect: the figures at the foreground and background move in unison in a manner that can only be described as "life-like." Ordinary, static examples have no such vibrancy. * Artist Martin Engelbrecht (1684-1756) was a printseller and engraver in Augsburg, Germany. "In about 1730, he created cards for miniature theaters, which when inserted into a display box showed religious scenes and pictures of daily life in a 3D perspective view. He devoted an entire series of these to the Italian theater. Engelbrecht?'s miniature theaters or dioramas evolved from his large-scale Zograscope images and are regarded as the earliest 'paper' theaters in history." (SOURCE: Stephen J. Gertz, "The Miniature Theaters of Martin Engelbrecht" (in: Seattle PI, 23 July 2009). * "Best known for his portraits of monarchs as well as his intricate landscapes, Engelbrecht?'s work is beyond compare. Some of his best work was with optical prints. He used these in his perspective boxes and miniature theatres. Typically eight cards would be inserted into a peepbox, consecutively, which provided imagery similar to that of a theatre scene, or play. The view had great perspective." (SOURCE: History of the Discovery of Cinematography). * All of Engelbrecht's paper theaters are scarce, many extremely so: these miniature theater engraved cards were roughly (and often) handled by children and adults. That any have survived is quite remarkable. * REFERENCES: Laub 12f. Gier 785ff. Ann Montanaro, A Concise History of Pop-Up and Moveable Books (passim).

        Museum Sinicum in quo Sinicae Linguae

      1730. BAYER, Theophilus Gottlieb Siegfried. Museum Sinicum in quo Sinicae Linguae et Literaturae ratio explicatur. Two volumes bound in one. [22], 146, [2], 190; [2], 263, 263-372, [2] pp. Illustrated with 74 engraved plates of Chinese characters with many engraved characters and few illustrations in text. 8vo., 205 x 120, bound in contemporary calf, 5 raised bands, spine compartments and label gilt in a new half dark blue morocco folding box. Petropoli [St. Petersburg]: Academiae Imperatoriae, 1730. |~||~||~||~| First Edition. According to Björn Löwendahl in his catalogue of the Löwendahl - von der Burg collection, Museum Sinicum "contains the first grammatical account of the Chinese language published in Europe." Christoph Harbsmeier, Professor of Oriental Studies at the University of Oslo, explains that Bayer's work "was the beginning of a great tradition of Chinese Linguistics in Russia, a tradition which was to have a very profound influence on modern linguistic developments in the People's Republic of China [...] Bayer's introduction to his Museum Sinicum contains a most remarkable document: a detailed history of sinology from its beginnings to 1730." T.S. Bayer (1694-1738) was a Prussian born scholar who's first work relating to China was published in Könisgsberg in 1718. It describes a much debated solar eclipse that occurred in China in 31 AD and it's relationship to an event in the New Testament. The last nine pages of that work contain an introduction to the Chinese language which appears to be a summery of the present expansive work on the subject. Bayer became keeper of Greek and Roman Antiquaties at the Imperial Acadamy of Sciences in St. Petersburg in 1726. A very scarce book, with OCLC listing only 6 copies in America. The binding has been professionally restored, some inconsequential foxing, still an appealing copy. Cordier, Sinica 1658. Löwendahl 366. K. Lundbaek, T.S.

      Americas: Augsburg, Seutter, Matthäus c 1730. Copper engraved map of the American continent from Seutter's "Atlas Novus". Original old full wash colour; verso blank. The map,engraved for Seutter by Gottfried Rogg, shows the whole of the Americas, North and South with California as an island. The map has full orignal wash colour designating the kingdoms and provinces; colored lines showing the routes of explorers in the Pacific with the dates of their voyages and a host of other information. Very large decorative vignettes around title and text to upper and lower left corners. The upper shows 3 Europeans seated with the Madonna above text and native Americans at an alter, thus depicting the arrival of Christianity to the Continent. The lower vignette around the title has a native American monarch possibly Atahualpa surrounded by other natives and exotic fauna, in the background figures, possibly slaves, harvest sugar cane and tobacco. Good dark impression;some soiling mainly to margins; 2 stains in Pacific possibly from wax; slight browning to centrefold; margins short due to size of plate [approx. 10mm to image]; old ink title to verso. Seutter, Matthäus (The Elder): 1678?"1757, Seutter was an engraver, globe-maker and publisher. Born in Augsburg in 1685, the son of a goldsmith. Seutter began his studies in Nuremberg in 1697, apprenticed as an engraver to Johann Baptist Homann. in 1707 later he returned to Augsburg subsequently working in the publishing house of Jeremias Wolff in the city. He founded the Seutter publishing house and print shop in 1710, producing maps, atlases, and globes., which became a primary competitor to Homann. Very few original maps were printed there, as Augsburg at that time had no university and none of the necessary connections to the fields of mathematics or the natural sciences. Therefore Seutter copied the work of other cartographers, making his own engravings based on their models (approximately 500 pieces). His "Atlas Geographicus oder Accurate Vorstellung der ganzen Welt' appeared in 1725 with 46 maps: the "Atlas Novus" various editions in 1728, 1730, 1736, 1742; the "Grosser Atlas" in 1734 with 131 maps, and the pocket atlas "Atlas minor in 1744 with 64 maps. After Matthäus Seutter died in 1757, his son, Albrecht Karl, his son-in-law Conrad Tobias Lotter, and his business partner Johann Michael Probst ran the business for five more years.

      Europe: Nuremberg Homann, Johann Baptist 1730. Copper engraved town plan of Stockholm from Johann Bapt. Homann's "Grosser Atlas.". Original full colour, verso blank. Decorative title cartouche and scale, black and white as issued. Dark impression; bright colours; light spotting to blank margins; darker spots to lower blank margin, one within the plate. Johann Baptist Homann (1664 ?" 1724) from 1687 Homann worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house. Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as recommendation for potential customers. In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece "Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt" Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, in business until 1848, known as "Homann Erben", "Homanniani Heredes", "Heritiers de Homann" abroad. Europe Northern & Eastern Europe Sweden Stockholm

Due perhaps to its Neapolitan origins, it pays particular attention to the cultivation of olives and the production of olive oil.

        Historia da America Portugueza, desde o Anno de Mil e Quinhentos do seu Descobrimento, até o de Mil Setecentos e Vinte e Quatro

      Lisbon: Joseph Antonio da Sylva,, 1730. Folio (295 × 203 mm). Contemporary sprinkled sheep, new re morocco label, compartments gilt with scrolled foliate corner-pieces, floral lozenge central tools, edges sprinkled red and blue. Title printed in red and black, woodcut headpieces, this copy bound with the half-title and the integral black before the main body of the text which are most often lacking. A little rubbed, some stripping from the upper board, judicious restoration to the spine at head and tail, and on the joints, light browning, occasional professional paper repairs to the margins, but overall a very good copy that presents well. First edition of the first history of Brazil, and by a Brazilian at that, Sebastiao da Rocha Pitta (1660-1738), having been born in Bahia. Borba de Moraes explains that "the first edition is becoming rare, and is much sought after by Brazilians … since it was the first history of Brazil to have been printed, and since it was written by a Brazilian". In his own history of Brazil Southey was somewhat dismissive describing it as a "meagre and inaccurate work". Thomas Lindley, writing in his Narrative of a Voyage to Brazil, is less dismissive and certainly more specific in his criticisms, describing Pitta as "an intelligent and well-informed Brazilian", who compiled his history "from the chronicles of the Jesuits and other authorities, and some valuable local knowledge of his own. This work is extremely copious in the details of the foundation of Brazil as a colony, its successive governors, its churches, its monasteries and convents; but in its natural history, productions, commerce, and, in short, every point of useful information, is brief cramped and deficient" (pp. xii-xiv). Evidently more of an old-style chronicle than a practical, up-to-the-minute guidebook. Lindley also remarking that the Portuguese government "publicly prohibited its being read under the severest penalties, and it is now only met with (carefully secluded) in the cabinets of the curious". A nice example of this uncommon and important work, carefully restored in an attractive contemporary binding.
