        Manuscript on vellum, in Spanish. [Appointment to the office of alguacil mayor]

      Cordoba, Spain, 1730. Oblong folio (31.5 x 42.5 cm; 12.5" x 16.5" ). [1] f. Juan Carlos de Benavides y Mesia, a citizen of Baeza and a familiar of the Holy Office, is appointed to the post of alguacil mayor ("chief justice") of the Inquisition. The appointment was made on 13 May and carried with it not only the power and responsibilities of the office but considerable privileges and exemptions. It was a much coveted position. Written in sepia ink in a clear italic hand surrounded by a calligraphic border accomplished in red and green, this has the symbol of the Inquisition at the center top in green and yellow with the symbol of the Dominican Order to its left and right in brown ink. The signatures of three Inquisitors and an Inquisition notary appear large and clear, and the paper and wax seal is present. The verso of the document has, in a clear notarial hand in black ink, the registration of the appointment; this, too, is => impressive to look at. Very good condition.

        An Essay upon Poetry and Painting with Relation to the Sacred and Profane History. With an appendix concerning obscenity in writing

      London: F. Fayram, 1730 First edition. Contemporary paneled calf, expertly rebacked, . Twelvemo. A very good copy. Charles Lamotte (1681?-1741) is known almost solely for the present work; he receives no mention in the D.N.B. There is, however, a substantial entry on him in the Dictionary of Eighteenth-Century British Philosophers. John Valdimir Price writes: "Lamotte's concernâ?¦is with 'License' or what other aestheticians called decorum. Poets and painters are allowed 'some Degree of Licence,' but the analogies and linkings that they make should never venture into absurdity or anachronism. The proper enjoyment of painting or drama depends on an awareness of its fidelity to historical truth and of its consonance with the general experience of mankind." Price goes on, "â?¦he never loses sight of the power of painting or poetry to corrupt and to deprave," but notes that "there is a refreshing lack of cant and proselytizing in his work." A second edition appeared in Dublin in 1742.

        "To the philo Gentou reader ... I present thee here, worthy reader with the rudiments of a Gentoo-grammar..."

      Madras. 1730. "A very early unpublished manuscript on the Gentoo (Telugu) language, written in English and Gentoo, by an early missionary to India, almost certainly the German Lutheran missionary, Benjamin Schultze (see below). Small 4to (21 x 16 cm), 294 red-ruled pages, neatly written in ink; uncut; the whole bound in late 18th century polished calf, gilt rules on covers, gilt-decorated spine in 6 compartments, red morocco label (""Gentou & English Grammar"") in 1; 2 leaves excised at the front; minor wear at the extremities, internally near fine. Ex-Earls of Macclesfield, with the engraved North Library bookplate on the front pastedown, and 2 or 3 Macclesfield pressure stamps.& & The 10-page preface gives an inkling of the circumstances surrounding the compilation of this manuscript, and offers as well several hints as to its authorship. & & ""Whilst I open the way to teach this language, I desire to be understood not to give a full and perfect acct. of it but to manifest briefly & in Epitome ye most compendious method, whereby thou mayst attain it in a short time. And to deal plainly with thee, I ingenuously confess, that as I never had it in Design to invent a Grammar, so much less was it my purpose to leave Tranquebar & come to Madras fore sake of making one in ye Gentoo Language: for when I took leave of my Friends in Tranquebar, I preached for 6 Months every where on ye Coast of Coremandel ye Gospel of Christ & ye Kingdom of Heaven to such as spoke Tamile or Malabar Language, which indeed was my intent in undertaking this Journey. And in my progress of it (as appears by my Diary in High Dutch) making my residence at Madras or Fort St. George, I had here set up a School for Malabar and Gentoo Children, several months before I had ye Thought to examine in to ye Gentoo- Language, but ye Circumstances of ye School oblige me to learn ye Gentoo- Language also for ye Benefit of ye Boys in it. The Tamilie or Malabarian Bible by God's Assistance was already translated & wholly finish'd before my Departure from Tranquebar on this Expedition into ye Territories of ye great Mogul, as also as I had translated Seber's Garden of the Bible into Malabars at liesure hours in ye time of my travel I made likewise a version of ye English Liturgy into ye same Language; Thus finish'd with Books & Epitomes in ye Malabar Tongue, I steer'd my course to Madras to try in this City to find a soil for serving ye word of God, ye Seed of Life, in it.""& & A Grammatica Telugica was compiled in Madras in 1728 by the German Lutheran missionary, Benjamin Schultze, in Latin and Telugu. This grammar remained in manuscript for more than two-and-a-half centuries, and was not published until 1984. Schultze arrived in India in 1719 and relocated to Madras to establish an English mission in 1726 and worked on completing Bartholomäus Ziegenbalg's Bible translations into Tamil and then Bible translations into Telugu. & & The reference to ""my diary in High Dutch,"" and other references about his removal to Madras and the establishment of a school points directly to Schultze. Furthermore, the handwriting compares very favorably with no less than six other Schultze manuscripts now at the Franckesche Stiftungen, in Halle, Germany. & & Benjamin Schultze was born in Brandenburg in 1689. He studied at Halle, landed at Madras in January, 1719, went back to Germany in 1743 worked as the Director of the orphan House in Halle for 17 years and died in 1760 aged 71 years. In India, he learned Tamil, Telugu, Sanscrit and Hindusthani languages. Of the total 24 years of his stay in Tamilnadu, Schultze spent 16 years in Madras from 1728 to 1743. During this period, Madras was dominated by Telugu people and the entire population consisted of many other Indian and foreign citizens, as well. Schultze was wont to go out and mingle with various kinds of people in Madras on a daily basis, and noted down in his diaries his observations in the Telugu language. He took with him his Telugu diaries to Germany in 1743, read them through for 8 years, and published in 1750 his observations in a book titled Madras Stadt... first in a German language edition, and then in English which was titled The Large and Renowned Town of the English Nation in the East Indies upon the coast of Coromandel Madras or Fort St. George...written originally in the Waruga or Gentou Language, but afterwards translated into the English tongue, for the benefit of some curious readers. This book was a unique publication - a product of a German writing in Telugu and then translating in English via his German version (see C.S. Mohanavelu, ""Lifestyle of the Madrasis During the 18th Century as Reported by the German Missionary Schultze: A Few Aspects""). & & This offers an interesting parallel to the present grammar, as his original 1728 Grammatica Telugica, written in Telugu and Latin, is here recast into Telugu and English, for the benefit of other curious readers in the English market which it never reached. & & This is an extensive work, laid out in 8 chapters, detailing the Gentoo alphabet, structure and variation of the letters, reading and pronunciation, a 17-page Gentoo-English word list in triple column giving pronunciations, declensions, numerals and numbering, plus sections on nouns, adjectives, adverbs, verbs, participles, moods and tenses, particles, and syntax. This is followed by a 22-page appendix giving the Apostles' Creed, The Lord's Prayer, and the first chapter of Genesis in Gentoo and English.& & See also Darlow & Moule, pp. 1587-88 who point out that Schultze translated the whole Bible into Telugu, 1726-32, but the translation never made it into print. It was not until 1812 that the earliest printed edition of any book of the Bible in Telugu finally appeared.& & "

        Ecclesiastes, sive Concionator Evangelicus. Liber Primus. De Dignitate, Difficultate, Pietate, Puritate, Pridentia caeterisque virtutibus Ecclesiastae.Cui praefigitur Dissertatio Praeliminaris. RARE BRAY 'ERASMUS'

      Prostant venales apud J. Brotherton ad Insigne Bibliorum Sacrorum in Vico Cornhill 1730 - 8vo., First and Sole Edition thus, on laid paper, text in Latin, with several fine woodcut head- and tail-pieces, some slight age-staining (mainly marginal, more pronounced on a handful of leaves); contemporary marbled boards, very neatly rebacked in calf to style, back with four raised bands, second compartment with red leather label lettered in gilt, a remarkably, fresh, crisp, clean copy. First published in 1535, the 'Ecclesiastes' is Erasmus' last and longest work, a detailed treatise on preaching and the offices and duties of priesthood. O'Malley deems it 'a major monument - perhaps the major monument - in the history of sacred rhetoric. Its only rival is the De Doctrina Christiana of Augustine' (Erasmus and the History of Sacred Rhetoric: The Ecclesiastes of 1535).Bray's extended (25pp) introduction begins in typically exuberant fashion - 'Jesu & Omnia!', dedicating the printing to Edmund [Gibson], Bishop of London [1669-1748] and Edward, Bishop of Coventry and Lichfield. Erasmus' famous preface, revealing his responses to the deaths of More, Fisher, Wareham and Mountjoy, is given in full. Thomas Bray (1656-1730), Commissary of Maryland and founder of SPCK, did much to spread abroad knowledge of significant religious works. 'It was a great service to the cause of Christian knowledge', undertaken for no reward and with 'unspeakable labour and fatigue'.Rare. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Icon Crateris Neapolitani

      Naples. Map. Engraving. Image measures 24.75 x 36.5". The incredible rarity of this map of the Gulf of Naples by Filippo Morghen is matched only by its incredibly stunning design and execution. The body of the map consists of an exquisitely detailed topographical rendering of the Gulf region that shows, in particular, its famous volcanoes. Notes scattered throughout the map provide more information about the regions history and landscape. At the center of the map is an ornate compass rose with north to the upper left and rhumb lines extending out to the surrounding coasts. An inset in the upper left of the map describes the iconography of ancient Naples, and an inset in the upper right contains a Puetinger Table, or illustrated road map. While this informative map is impressive in itself, it is outshone on this sheet by the view below it, which shows the eruption of the famed Mount Vesuvius. In front of this background of bursting lava and billowing smoke are views of ancient Neapolitan buildings, ruins, and sculptures. Along either side of the map is an Index of Neapolitan Antiquities, written in Latin. The map is in good condition with minor overall soiling. Wide margins with no chips or tears. Staining particularly in left and right indexes, not affecting the main image. The Florentine artist Filippo Morgen (1730--1807) was one of the most significant Italian engravers of the second half of the 18th century. Based in Naples, he produced a range of archaeological illustrations and views of Naples that found success with noblemen and tourists alike. This rare map, as a combination of Morghen's various skills, typifies the work for which he is famous.

        Queen Caroline Orders Payment of British Army Units

      Queen Caroline Orders Payment of British Army Units.& & Like his father, King George II was more interested in Hanover than in Great Britain, and was often absent from London on visits there.

        Het Hoog en Lager-Huys van Engelandt.

      [Amsterdam] [Ca. 1728-1730] - Plate mark 42,5 x 58 cm. The whole sheet 45 x 60 cm. Etching. The etching depicts a session of the english House of Commons with George II on throne with session of Lords inset above. The image was first published in the late 1600s. with William III on throne, another edition was published in the early 1700s. with Queen Anne on throne. The plate was probably published for the1728-1730 work "Geschiedenis van Engelandt", by De Larrey. The letters in the image would then reffer to the text of that work. The etching was executed by Romeyn de Hooghe and printed by Jan Covens and Comeille Mortier, one of the main map and print publishers of the early 18th. century. They aquired copper plates from many different 17th. century publishing houses, and printed new editions sometimes reworking and updating the plates. A couple of pinholes. Nice condition.

        Two Certified Period Manuscript Copies of the Financial Statements Regarding Wages of the Staff of the British Garrisons in Minorca and Gibraltar]: 1) Establishment of the Forces and Garrison in the Island of Minorca; 2) Regulation of Subsistance [sic!] to be paid to every Officer & Soldier in the foregoing Establishment.

      1730 - Ca. 1730. Two leaves, both Folio (ca. 27,5x46,5 cm or 18 ½ x 11 in). Filled in on both sides. Brown ink on laid paper. Paper slightly browned, with some staining and tears on margins; both documents rolled. Overall in good condition. Two period 18th century manuscript copies of historically important documents regarding the wages of the staff of the British garrisons in Minorca and Gibraltar. The papers contain copies of the signatures of George II, and politicians William Clayton, Sir George Oxenden, and Sir William Yonge; they are both certified as "A true copy" by government official Richard Arnold. The first document lists the wages for the garrison of Minorca, showing per diem and annual figures separately. The document accounts for wages for a regiment of foot (commanded by Col. Cosby), including field and staff officers, for a company of infantry, and a company of grenadiers. The final figure which includes wages for eight more infantry companies and three more regiments of foot (commanded by Col. Kane, Brig. Tyrrell, and Col. Handasyd) adds up to 51,136 per year. On verso are "The Charge of the Garrison of Minorca" which accounts daily and annual payments to the officials and servants, from Governor to Signal Man; and gives separate lists of wages for the staff of Fort St. Anne and Fort St. Phillip. There is also a total figure (57,336 per year). The second document contains a "Warrant for deducting one day's pay yearly" from the British forces in Minorca and Gibraltar for the "Royal hospital near Chelsea", for the reason of "maintenance of such Superannuated & disabled Officers and Soldiers as shall be provided for therein". The official document under the signature of George II was "Given to Our Court at St. James this 4th May 1730". On verso there is a "Regulation of Subsistance [sic!] to be paid to every Officer & Soldier in the foregoing Establishment" (Minorca and Gibraltar); it lists due wages for fifteen ranks of personnel, from Colonel to Private. Overall very interesting documents detailing military matters in the recently annexed British possessions in the Mediterranean. "Under the terms of the 1713 Treaty of Utrecht Gibraltar was ceded to Britain in perpetuity, [and] Britain took possession [of Minorca] under the terms of the Article XI of the [same treaty]" (Wikipedia).

        January

      London: Robert Furber, 1730. Engraving, coloured by hand, by Henry Fletcher. 16 x 12 1/8 inches. 17 5/8 x 13 1/8 inches. Gold leaf frame. A fine example of this celebrated image from Furber&#39;s renowned series titled "Twelve Months of Flowers", here with excellent contemporary hand colouring From the first edition of "a celebrated flower catalogue published by Robert Furber, a nurseryman from Kensington, then on the outskirts of London. Twelve Months of Flowers presented almost 400 different flowering species, grouped according to the month in which they flower. Reflecting in style the grand manner of the Baroque period, the flowers are arranged in elaborate bouquets and placed in elegant urns. Next to each flower appears a number, which corresponds to a name in the key printed at the bottom of the plate on either side of a cartouche inscribed with the name of one of the months of the year. Twelve Months was conceived as a flower catalogue, but its commercial function was adroitly veiled and the artistic quality of its illustrations distinguishes it from the more modest pamphlets generally produced by floriculturalists, including Furber himself, in this period. For the work Furber sought the collaboration of Pieter Casteels (1684-1749), an artist from Antwerp who had achieved great renown throughout England for his paintings of birds and flowers, which decorated the walls of many aristocratic homes. Casteels designed the plates, which were then engraved by Henry Fletcher. Dunthorne 113; Great Flower Books (1990) p.95; Henrey II, pp.343-346 & III, 733; Nissen BBI 674; Oak Spring Flora 37

      Paris: Chez l&#39;Auteur sur le Quay de l&#39;Horloge, circa 1730. Engraved with period outline colour. In superb condition with the exception of a faint waterstain along the top of the central crease. 18 3/8 x 24 5/8 inches. 18 3/4 x 24 7/8 inches. 19 7/8 x 26 1/2 inches. An important early map of the island of Hispaniola, by the celebrated French cartographer, Guillaume de L&#39;Isle. Guillaume de l&#39;Isle (1675-1726) was the son of a cartographer and a pupil of Jean Dominique Cassini, who, among other important contributions, aligned the study of astronomy to the study of geography. Under Cassini&#39;s direction, observations were made from locations all over the world that enabled longitudinal calculations to be made with much greater accuracy. De l&#39;Isle carried on this exacting work with remarkable dedication and integrity, constantly revising and improving his maps. While precision was his primary goal, his maps are invariably elegant and attractive. Considered one of De L&#39;Isle&#39;s finest maps, the chart depicts Hispaniola, now Haiti and the Dominican Republic. The Spanish never settled the entire island, though nominally it was theirs, and French buccaneers who had established strongholds along the western coasts were later joined by French planters, who wrestled away the western part from the Spanish officially in 1697 to form Saint Domingue. There through the hard work of African slaves, they established sugar plantations and refineries. The sugar industry was still in its youth when this map was first issued by De l&#39;Isle. The political alignments changed radically several times before the present-day division was established. Moreland and Bannister, Antique Maps p. 132; Tooley&#39;s Dictionary of Mapmakers, 395
