First published between 1702 and 1707 (with the first octavo edition appearing in 1705-06) Clarendon's great History has "remained in the mind because of his literary achievement?the fashioning of the most sophisticated and finely balanced history yet written in English (or written for a long time afterwards)?and for an unmistakable rhetorical voice. Clarendon's writings?and his own life?were steeped in the literary stoicism of the early seventeenth century; but in the History he created a distinctive work of art based on a highly wrought style, a forensic dissection of character and issue, and a sense of the depth of individuals' moral responsibility for their action" (ODNB).

Blokh, veau marbré de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, tranches rouges, Seconde édition de ce traité qui fut l'un des premiers ouvrages complets sur l'otologie et qui parut pour la première fois en 1683. Après avoir exposé des notions d'anatomie nouvelles, Duverney développe une théorie de l'audition très proche de celle de von Helmholtz, puis aborde finalement quelques pathologies de l'oreille. C'est la première monographie scientifique sur la structure et les maladies de l'oreille. Duverney y décrit et démontre pour la première fois plusieurs fonctions de l'anatomie de l'oreille, telles que les artères et les veines du pavillon. Joseph-Guichard Du Verney (1648-1730), médecin de Louis XIV, membre de l'Académie royale des Sciences et professeur d'anatomie et de chirurgie au Jardin royal des Plantes, est considéré comme l'un des fondateur de l'anatomie du XVIIIe siècle. Il eut comme élèves, entre autres, Dionis, Winslow, Sénac et Petit. Les planches, numérotées de I à XVI, sont accompagnées d'un texte explicatif.

      6 Vol. au complet La Haye, chez P. Gosse & J. Neaulme, 1731, in-12, 6 Vol. au complet, plein parchemin de remploi, dos à nerfs, pèces de titre et de tomaison en cuir (reliure d'époque), Réédition de l'ensemble des oeuvres Marot, parues pour la première en1538. En 1731 parait deux formats de la même édition, l'un en format in-4 et l'autre et celle-ci en format in-12. La première, "quoique assez bonne et beaucoup plus complète que les autres, est peu recherchée" contrairement aux 6 volumes en petit format ici présent qui "est plus commode et plus jolie". (BRUNET, III, 1452; 1458) A l'instar de la quasi-totalité des oeuvres posthumes de Marot (c'est-à-dire à partir de l'édition de Sabon-Constantin de 1544-1545), les éditeurs classent les poésies de Marot par genres poétiques et les séparent de ses traductions, rompant avec un classement semi-chronologique induit par la succession de "L'Adolescence Clémentine" et de sa "Suite". Ainsi, la première partie des "Oeuvres" comprent, dans l'ordre, les opuscules, les Elegies, les Epîtres, les Ballades, les Chants divers, les Rondeaux, les Chansons, les Epigrammes, le Epigrammes à "l'imitation de Martial", les Etrennes, les Epitaphes, les Cimetières et les Complaintes ; puis, dans une seconde partie, nouvellement paginée, les traductions de Virgile, Béroalde, Pétrarque, Ovide, Léandre et Héro, et enfin la célèbre version marotique des 50 "Psaumes de David". Ex-Libris contrecollés sur les contreplats. Malgré l'effacement volontaire du nom du propriétaire, on reconnait ici l'Ex-Libris de Louis César de Crémeaux, Marquis D'Entragues, qui était lieutenant général au gouvernement de Mâconnais. Bel ensemble dans son jus, quelques manques de parchemin par endroits, intérieur frais.

"Per i primi due volumi, dedicati alle gemme antiche recanti immagini di imperatori, re, regine, eroi, filosofi, oratori, poeti, dei e dee, oppure raffiguranti scene omeriche, di storia e mitologia, aveva attinto non solo all'ampia raccolta medicea, ma anche alle dattilioteche private più insigni: in primis a quella ricchissima di casa Strozzi, poi a quelle dei marchesi Riccardi e Niccolini, del conte Della Gherardesca, dei musei Gaddi e Guadagni. Gli altri volumi, pubblicati nel 1743, furono invece dedicati ai medaglioni e monete antichi e allo studio delle loro raffigurazioni e iscrizioni. Nel suo De monetis Italiae del 1750-59 anche Filippo Argelati accolse alcune osservazioni del G. sulla composizione aurifera e argentea di certe monete antiche."

        An Essay Concerning Human Understanding. 2 vol.-set (Complete)

      Edmund Parker, London 1731 - Octavo (8 x 5"). [4], IV, [26], 372pp (Vol. 1); [2]pp (Publisher's advertisement), [16], 340, [27, index], [1]pp (Vol. 2). 19th-century black- and blind-stamped full calf, with gold numerotation on spines. Raised bands. First volume with an engraved frontispiece portrait of John Locke by Vertue, after a painting by G. Knetter. Decorative headpieces and initials.Tenth and enlarged edition of John Locke's Essay "Concerning Human Understanding," a philosophical landmark originally published in 1689 (although dated 1690).One of the principal sources of empiricism in modern philosophy, this essay presents a detailed, systematic philosophy of mind and thought, and wrestles with fundamental questions about how we think and perceive, and it even touches on how we express ourselves through language, logic, and religious practices. In the introduction, entitled 'The Epistle to the Reader,' Locke describes how he became involved in his current mode of philosophical thinking. He relates an anecdote about a conversation with friends that made him realize that men often suffer in their pursuit of knowledge because they fail to determine the limits of their understanding. The Essay is divided into four books (two per volume):First volume:- Book I is devoted to an attack on nativism or the doctrine of innate ideas. Locke allowed that some ideas are in the mind from an early age, but argued that such ideas are furnished by the senses starting in the womb: for instance, differences between colors or tastes. If we have a universal understanding of a concept like sweetness, it is not because this is an innate idea, but because we are all exposed to sweet tastes at an early age. One of Locke's fundamental arguments against innate ideas is the very fact that there is no truth to which all people attest. He took the time to argue against a number of propositions that rationalists offer as universally accepted truth, for instance the principle of identity, pointing out that at the very least children and idiots are often unaware of these propositions. - Book II: Whereas Book I is intended to reject the doctrine of innate ideas proposed by Descartes and the rationalists, Book II explains that every idea is derived from experience either by sensation - direct sensory information - or reflection - "the perception of the operations of our own mind within us, as it is employed about the ideas it has got". Furthermore, Book II is also a systematic argument for the existence of an intelligent being: "Thus, from the consideration of ourselves, and what we infallibly find in our own constitutions, our reason leads us to the knowledge of this certain and evident truth, that there is an eternal, most powerful, and most knowing being; which whether any one will please to call God, it matters not!" Second volume:- Book III focuses on words. Locke connects words to the ideas they signify, claiming that man is unique in being able to frame sounds into distinct words and to signify ideas by those words, and then that these words are built into language. Chapter ten in this book focuses on "Abuse of Words." Here, Locke calls out metaphysicians for making up new words that have no clear meaning. He also criticizes the use of words which are not linked to clear ideas, and to those who change the criteria or meaning underlying a term. Thus he uses a discussion of language to demonstrate sloppy thinking. Locke followed the Port-Royal Logique (1662) in numbering among the abuses of language those that he calls "affected obscurity" in chapter 10. Locke complains that such obscurity is caused by, for example, philosophers who, to confuse their readers, invoke old terms and give them unexpected meanings or who construct new terms without clearly defining their intent. Writers may also invent such obfuscation to make themselves appear more learned or their ideas more complicated and nuanced or erudite than they actually are. - Book IV and last, focuses on knowledge in general [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Altar of Love: Or, the Whole Art of Kissing In all its Varieties. Consisting of Poems, And other Miscellanies. By the most eminent Hands. Now first collected into a Volume. The Third Edition.

A similar title was first published by "H. Curll," with different registration, and the edition statement is a nonsense for this nonce collection, whose contents seem to vary from copy to copy. The texts included here are The Art of Kissing; Popeana ("Advice before Marriage"); Jacob: The Rape of the Smock; Gay: The Hoop-Petticoat; The Patch; A Recipt for Soup [no title-page called for in collation[; Bury-Fair; William Bowman: Poems on Several Occasions; Addison: Oratio, An Oration in Defense of the New Philosophy; and An Apology for the Writings of Walter Moyle, being the last item, written by Curll, who was also the printer and publisher of this volume. It is not immediately clear what the last essay has to do with "the Whole Art of Kissing." ESTC and other online resources, as well as Foxon, record a number of different configurations for the works included under the catch-all title (possibly one of Curll's many jokes), but so far as I can tell, not this one.

        Designs of Inigo Jones and Others.

      - London, Isaac Ware [1731]. Quarto contemporary calf (label missing, front hinge cracked but firm); engraved title, 5 engraved pages listing plates on three leaves and 48 plates numbered to 53 (six double page of which five carry two numbers). A rather good copy, fresh and crisp, with the charming armorial bookplate of White of Lincolns-Inn which is handcoloured and touched with gold. I suspect this is William Archibald Armstrong White but there were a few Whites of Lincolns Inn. First edition. Ware's first substantial production as part of the Burlington circle, in a way a popular version of the grander book produced by William Kent in 1727. Here the designs are mostly those of Jones and Kent (one is Burlington's) but a few had not been published before. Eileen Harris pointed out in her note on the William Kent book that its greatest influence is apparent in the use of details - doors, windows, ceilings, fireplaces &c - and doubtless the same claim can be made for this book; there are many fine details.

        Histoire de la guerre des Hussites et du concile de Basle

      - Chez Corneille Guillaume Le Febvre, à Utrecht 1731, in-4 (20x26cm), (4) xix (1) 484pp. et (4) 387pp., 2 volumes reliés. - Prima edizione, illustrata con 10 ritratti - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale illustrée de 10 portraits gravés par Fillieul et Scottin, et publiée par sa veuve Emilie Lenfant. La Dissertation de M. de Beausobre sur les Adamites de Boheme suit l'ouvrage de Lenfant (258-370p.). 2 vignettes de titre. Biographie de l'auteur dans les pages liminaires. Ornements, bandeaux et culs-de-lampe. Reliures en pleine basane brune porphyre d'époque. Dos à nerfs ornés. Pièces de titre et de tomaison en maroquin fauve. manques en tête des 2 tomes. Mors supérieur fendu en queue du tome I. 4 coins émoussés. Frottements. Bons exemplaires. La guerre des Hussites constitue un événement historique de première importance dans l'histoire de l'église, de la Tchécoslovaquie et de la Bohème. En choisissant d'en établir l'histoire, l'écrivain protestant Lenfant y repère un avant goût de la Réforme protestante opérée par Luther et voit en Jan Huss un précurseur. Jan Huss est un prêtre Tchèque du quatorzième sièle qui prône la réforme de l'église, il demande un retour à la pauvreté évangélique et lutte contre les indulgences. Il prêche dans sa langue natale et traduit les Evangiles en Tchèque, fixant ainsi la langue écrite tchèque, et revendique la liberté pour son peuple, contre l'empereur et roi de Bohème. Le concile de Constance le condamne pour hérésie et au bûcher en 1415. Sa mort entraîne 18 années de guerre en Bohème. Les Hussites résisteront à 5 croisades catholiques demandées par le pape et domnineront la Bohème par leurs victoires militaires. L'église pliera devant certaines revendications des Hussites lors du Concile de Basle, accordant la lecture en tchèque de l'épitre et des Evangiles, et la communion en tchèque. En 1575, les deux tiers des Tchèques se rallieront à la réforme luthérienne.

        The Coming of the Messiah in Glory and Majesty. By Juan Josafat Ben Ezra, a converted Jew.

      Small Octavo. XIV, 575 pages. Hardcover / Original, decorative half leather binding with gilt lettering and ornaments on spine. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Unusual in this excellent condition. Very scarce publication. Even more scarce in a Dublin printing ! Manuel Diaz Lacunza S.J. (born Santiago, Chile, 1731 died Imola, Italy around June 18, 1801) was a Jesuit priest who used the pen-name Juan Josafat Ben-Ezra for his main work on the interpretation of the prophecies of the Bible. The son of Charles and Josefa Diaz, wealthy merchants engaged in colonial trade between Lima and Chile, Manuel entered the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) in 1747. After the usual training in a seminary he took his full vows and was ordained priest in 1766 but began his service as a teacher of grammar in the Colegio Máximo de San Miguel in the Chilean capital, where he gained moderate fame as a pulpit orator. In 1767 King Charles III of Spain expelled the Jesuits from Spain and its possessions, (including South America) and Lacunza was sent into exile, first in Cadiz and then in the Italian town of Imola, near Bologna in central Italy, where he found refuge with other Chilean Jesuits. Charles threatened to withdraw his subsidy of 100 piastres per annum if any Jesuit wrote in self-defence or in criticism of this move. Lacunza's life as a priest-in-exile was made more difficult when the next pope, Pope Clement XIV, issued the brief, Dominus ac Redemptor, which banned Jesuits from celebrating Mass or other sacraments. In addition, his family in Chile fell on hard times and the remittances on which Lacunza relied became increasingly scarce. During this time, Lacunza began an intensive programme of study, first of the Church Fathers and then of Biblical prophecies. He read all the commentaries available to him and after 1779 restricted his study solely to the Scriptures. After five years communal living with the other exiled Jesuits, Lacunza retired to a house on the outskirts of Imola where he lived alone, apart from a mysterious person whom he calls in his letters, "my good mulatto". During this time some of his Jesuit colleagues described him as "a man whose retirement from the world, his parsimonious way of life, the neglect of his own person, even from the comforts necessary to human life, and his indefatigable application to study, earned him the respect and admiration of all". In 1773 Lacunza received another blow when, by the bull "Dominus ac Redemptor", the pope dissolved the Jesuit order in return for territorial concessions by France and Spain who were threatening the Papal States, the so-called "Patrimony of St Peter". Thus, by decree, Lacunza was reduced to a secular status. Combined with the theological and Biblical study he had undertaken, this personal trauma led Lacunza to adopt a millenarial view of the near future. His developing ideas were first published in a 22-page tract known as "The Anonymous Millennium" which was widely circulated in South America (there is evidence that Lacunza did not authorise this publication and was annoyed by it). The tract gave rise to heated public debate, particularly in Buenos Aires. Lacunza's opponents denounced him to the Inquisition, which banned the booklet. In 1790 Lacunza completed the three volumes of his major work, "The Coming of the Messiah in Glory and Majesty" (La venida del Mesías en gloria y majestad). Recognising that royal patronage was the surest guarantee that his work would be published and that he would be protected against his enemies, he made repeated attempts to obtain approval by the Spanish court, but in this he was unsuccessful. However his book circulated in manuscript form in Spain and in the whole of South America. The exact date of his death is uncertain because his body was found in a pit beside a road some distance from Imola. At the time it was assumed that the septuagenarian priest had died of natural causes while on one of his solitary walks. Despite the prohibition of the Inquisition, "La venida del Mesías en gloria y majestad" was secretly printed in Cadiz in 1810 or 1811 under the Jewish pseudonym of Rabbi Juan Josaphat ben-Ezra. A second edition was printed in Spain in 1812 and a third, in Castilian and funded by the Argentine General Manuel Belgrano, was published in London in 1816. In the same year the book was denounced before the Spanish courts and on January 15, 1819 the Spanish Inquisition ordered that the book be removed from circulation. Further editions were printed in Mexico in 1821/1822, in Paris in 1825 and again in London in 1826. In September 1824 Pope Leo XII placed it on the Index of Prohibited Books. Those who opposed the book expressed particular concern about the appeal Lacunza's ideas exerted among the more conservative and active clergy. A pamphlet denouncing Lacunza's book, published in Madrid in 1824, was subtitled, "Observations to Guard the Public against the Seduction the Work can Cause". Following the book's publication in London, the Rev Edward Irving, founder of the Catholic Apostolic Church, came across Lacunza's work and was so impressed by it that he studied Castilian for the sole purpose of translating it into English. In 1827 his two-volume translation was published under the title "The Coming of the Messiah". Lacunza's interpretation of Bible prophecies differed from that of William Miller and other prominent Protestants of the day who were focused on prophecy in that he espoused Futurism and his ideas had greater influence on British premillennialism, and his influence may be traced in premillennialism's drift into Futurist Dispensationalism. Lacunza believed that he had made some "new discoveries, real, solid, undeniable, and of the greatest importance" for the discipline of theology. The first of these "new discoveries" was that the end of the world would not be an instantaneous destruction of God's creation. He denied "that the world - that is, the material bodies or celestial globes that God has created (among which is the one on which we live) - has to have an end or return to chaos or nothingness ... This idea is not found often in Scripture before the opposite idea is stated and I agree with the best interpreters." Secondly, Lacunza concluded that the Biblical expressions "end of the age" and "end of the world" refer to two different times. He understood the "end of the age" or "day of the Lord" as merely the end of a phase of human history that would be closed by the coming of Christ and the beginning of His kingdom on Earth. At this time the living would be judged and the Jews converted, after which a new society would be established for a thousand-year reign of justice and peace. Lacunza believed - based on his reading of Bible prophecy - that during the period before the "day of the Lord" there would be a general apostasy of the Catholic Church which would make it part of the Antichrist. In this sense "the church" was not individuals, but "a moral body" composed of all the apostates and atheists. Naturally this view was especially controversial because it placed the official church on the wrong side in the final struggle between Good and Evil. It was this belief that finally brought about the Vatican's condemnation of his work. On the other hand, the "end of the world" was marked by the resurrection of the dead and the Last Judgement, which Lacunza understood involved a transmutation of the physical world to the plane of the eternal. This event would take place after the thousand years of Christ's earthly kingdom. Lacunza's various works are valuable as a record of the experience of exile and intellectual persecution. His personal letters have come to be highly valued in his birthplace of Chile owing to its recent history of exile and persecution. For example, he wrote of his fellow exiles: "We are like a tree that is perfectly dry and unable to revive, or like a dead body that is buried in oblivion. ... Meanwhile we are slowly dying off. We left Chile 352 in number now just half are left and most of them are sick and can barely move - like a quack doctor's horse." The longing of the exile for his homeland can be heard in his declaration, "No one can know Chile until he has lost it!" (Wikipedia)

        Mein Schreibetisch. An Herrn G. R. P. in D. : Band 1 (von 2).

      (1. Aufl.), Band 1 von 2. 8 (15.5x10), 1 Bl., 384 S., 2 Bl., mit gestochenem Frontispiz (C. Schule del.) und gestochenem TitelPorträt, etwas späterer marmor Pbd mit goldgepräg RSchild, Ecken minimalst bestossen, Nummer auf Vorsatz, Adels-Exlibris-Stempel verso Titelblatt (v.Böhl auf Cramon), schönes gepflegtes Exemplar, In vorliegendem Spätwerk profilierte sich Marie Sophie von La Roche, geborene Gutermann (1731-1807) weniger als Schriftstellerin, denn als selbstbewusste Frau. Im Jahre 1799, als Napoleon die Macht in Frankreich an sich riss, eilte die nun fast 70jährige ein letztes Mal ihren Zeitgenossen voraus. Schon der Titel war ein Affront gegen die Konventionen, in einer Zeit, in der einer Frau eher 'Mein Nähr- opder Küchentisch' zugekommen wäre. Frappierender noch das Porträt mit Federkiel am Schreibtisch vor einem raumerfüllenden Bücherwand als Indiz ihrer großen Belesenheit. Mit ihrer Pose - schreibend und denkend, dokumentierte die Schriftstellerin ihren Anspruch als geistige Autorität. Dieses Altersbild als erhabene Schriftstellerin ist mit großer Gewissheit das erste seiner Art und war nur zum revolutionären Jahrhundertwechsel möglich. in der folgenden Restaurationszeit wäre dies undenkbar gewesen.- 'Mein Schreibetisch' ist signifikant, denn dort benennt Sophie in collagenartigen Texten, ähnlich einer Enzyklopädie, ihr breites Lese- und Bildungsrepertoire, anderen Frauen als Anregung empfohlen, darunter Werke von Marc Aurel, Plato, Hume und Kant, also keine verniedlichende 'Frauenzimmerlektüre'.

One of Hywel's supposed pro-English acts was the introduction of elements of English law into those of Wales. This was not impossible, since according to the prologues to the Welsh law books of the thirteenth and later centuries, he was responsible for the first codification and promulgation of Welsh law, known consequently as cyfraith Hywel (¿the law of Hywel¿).

Seltenes handschriftliches Zeugnis des bedeutenden Pharmazeuten und Chemikers Caspar Neumann (Züllichau 1683 - 1737 Berlin). Neumann war von 1719 bis zu seinem Tode Leiter der Hofapotheke. "Innerhalb sehr kurzer Zeit gelang es ihm, durch gut durchdachte Umbauten und umfassende Modernisierung der Einrichtung, die Berliner Hof-Apotheke zu einem mustergültigen pharmazeutischen Betrieb, vor allem aber zu einer Forschungs- und Ausbildungsstätte zu entwickeln, die in Deutschland kein Gegenstück hatte. (...) Neumann entwickelte faktisch die Konzeption des wissenschaftlich gebildeten Pharmazeuten." (wikipedia). Über Kalliope konnten wir nur eine weitere Handschrift Neumanns in Dresden nachweisen.

        Jean-Jacques A Mr. S... [Servan] sur des réflexions contre ses derniers ecrits. Lettre pseudonyme. [Von Claire-Marie Mazarelli, Marquise de la Vieuville de Saint-Chamond].

      (3), 4-70 Seiten. Unbeschnittener Block. Mit gestochener Titelvignette und Buchschmuck. Kl. 8 (17,5 x 11 cm). Schlichter Interims-Umschlag der Zeit[Softcover / Paperback]. Überaus seltene, wohl erste Ausgabe der leidenschaftlichen Verteidigung Rousseaus gegen seine Kritiker durch Claire-Marie de Vieuville de Saint Chamont. - Nicht bei Conlon, nicht bei Lonchamp, nicht im BMGC. - Vgl. Pickering & Chatto, Catalogue 788: Rousseau, No. 76 (Druckort identisch, Seitenzahl abweichend). - Barbier II, 986c Sartori, Feminist Encyclopedia 486f. - Claire-Marie de la Vieuville, Marquise de Saint-Chamond was born Claire-Marie Mazarelli in 1731. In her writings she criticized a society governed by outdated laws and traditions, leaving women with few rights. In her final work at hand she demonstrates a need of change, defending Rousseau and showing a profound knowledge of his works and the errors of his enemies. Her eulogies, wit, and rational ability to denounce injustice proved her to be a woman of great intellect and character. - Gut erhaltenes Werk der sehr seltenen Ausgabe mit unbeschnittenem Block in zeitgenössischem Papierumschlag. Umschlag mit Feuchtigkeitsspur, die ersten Seiten mit unscheinbarem, nichtfärbendem Wasserfleck. Geringfügig angestaubt, sonst sehr gutes Exemplar. - Unser Exemplar mit 70 Seiten für uns in keiner Bibliothek nachzuweisen das bei Pickering & Chatto erwähnte Exemplar mit 75 Seiten. - Rarissimum. - Scarce copy of the spirited defence of Rousseau by early feminist writer. Clean and in good condition, uncut in contemporary wraps. A bit stained due to water spotting. First pages with imperceptive water spot, else very good and clean copy of the remarkably rare work.

Large 4to, cont. calf (joints very slightly rubbed), spine nicely gilt, contrasting morocco lettering piece on spine. Leyden: J. & H. Verbeek, 1731. First edition. This book contains the first description of the pyrometer, an instrument for measuring the expansion of solid bodies under the influence of heat. Like many of Musschenbroek's books, the Tentamina contains fine illustrations and is concerned with experiments in measuring humidity, magnets and electricity, air pressure, the structure of ice, heat and cold, capillarity, optics, the motion of sound, etc. Musschenbroek (1692-1761), professor of natural philosophy and mathematics at Utrecht and, later, professor of experimental physics at Leyden, was one of the most celebrated physicists and most important investigators of his time. The experiments described in his books have become classics in elementary instruction. "Underlying Musschenbroek's lectures demonstrated with experiments was the experimental philosophy.the principal source of inspiration was Newton, but Galileo, Torricelli, Huygens, Réaumur, and others were important to this school."-D.S.B., IX, p. 596.

        EL CHERUBIN CUSTODIO DE EL ARBOL DE LA VIDA, LA SANTA CRUZ DE QUERETARO. VIDA DEL VE. SIERVO DE DIOS FRAY ANTONIO DE LOS ANGELES, BUSTAMANTE

      Mexico: Por Joseph Bernardo de Hogal, 1731. [22],216,[2]pp. plus engraved portrait. Small quarto. 19th-century calf over marbled paper- covered boards, spine gilt. Minor wear to extremities, titlepage chipped, costing just a handful of letters in the imprint, and mounted, minor tears and chipping to a couple preliminary leaves with minor loss of text, light foxing, short contemporary ink notation to two leaves, two preliminary leaves bound slightly out of order. Good. The first published work by Isidro Félix de Espinosa, the great Franciscan chronicler of the middle third of the 18th century. He was born in Queretaro, Mexico, in 1679, was educated there, and on March 19, 1697, he began his career as a Franciscan; he took holy orders on Dec. 17, 1703. Between 1709 and 1721 he participated in several expeditions to Texas: those of Captain Pedro de Aguirre, Domingo Ramón, Martín de Alarcón, and the Marques of San Miguel de Aguayo. While Espinosa is most famous for his writings on Texas and his fellow Texas missionary Antonio Margil de Jesus, this biography is of Fray Antonio de los Angeles Bustamante, the beloved porter of the Franciscan monastery in Queretaro. Fray Antonio was a lay cleric, a Spanish immigrant who arrived in Mexico as a boy and as an adult had a successful career in business which he abandoned to enter the monastic life. A full biography of such an "ordinary Joe" in the 18th century is most unusual. The volume offers an excellent copper-engraved portrait by Joaquín Sotomayor of Fray Antonio with the keys of his office and the symbols representing his responsibility of giving bread and water to those begging at the monastery door. The book is from the press of master printer Hogal, considered to be the Ibarra (or Baskerville) of Mexico. MEDINA, MEXICO 3173. AYALA ECHAVARRI 423. PALAU 82700. SABIN 22895.

        La Strada d. Bassi e il suo Tempio di Venecia/ Die Gasse S.Baßi und deßen Tempel zu Venedig

      Artist: Probst Georg Balthasar (-1801) Augsburg; issued in: Augsburgca1750 1731 - - technic: Copper print ; colorit: original colored ; condition: Very good ; size in cm : 30 x 41,5 - description: Representation of the Bassi Strada and the Marcus Basilica - Vita of the artist: Georg Balthasar Probst (1732?1801), Georg Balthasar Probst was a German artist, engraver and publisher in Augsburg, a major European publishing center in the 17th and 18th centuries. He produced architectural views of places around the world intended as vues d?optiques, which were published in various places during the last half of the 18th century, including Paris, Augsburg and London. He was also known for his portraits.Probst came from an extended family of printers, whose businesses can all be traced back to the publishing firm of Jeremias Wolff (1663-1724). After Wolff's death his firm was continued as ?Wolff?s Heirs? (Haeres Jer. Wolffii) by his son-in-law Johann Balthasar Probst (1689-1750). After Probst?s death in 1750, his descendants divided the business and published under their own imprints: Johann Friedrich Probst (1721-1781), Georg Balthasar Probst (1732-1801) and Johann Michael Probst. Another part of the Wolff-Probst firm was acquired by the Augsburg publisher Johann Georg Hertel (1700-1775), whose son Georg Leopold Hertel had married a sister of the Probsts. In the next generation, Georg Mathäus Probst (d. 1788), son of Georg Balthasar Probst, also became an engraver of portraits and views.

        Il Malmantile Racquistato di Pierlone Zipoli colle note di Puccio Lamoni e d'altri

      Michele Nestenus e Francesco Moücke l'Anno 1731, in Firenze - 2 voll. in-4° (262x190mm), pp. XXXXVIII, (1) di tavola genealogica del Minucci, 413; 414-864 (numerazione continua); legatura coeva p. pergamena rigida con titolo e fregi in oro su tasselli ai dorsi. Tagli policromi a spruzzo. Bella antiporta incisa dallo Zucchi al primo vol., su invenzione del Lippi stesso, con ritratto del Lippi intento a scrivere, con la tavolozza ed i pennelli del suo mestiere di pittore adagiati ai suoi piedi, e figura allegorica muliebre nell'atto di presentarglisi; ad una mensola sono diposte varie brocche e maschere teatrali, mentre una scimmia è intenta a colpire una ciotola con un pestello. Sempre al primo vol., un ritratto del Lippi in ovale f.t. ed un altro, più volte ripiegato e sempre inscritto entro un ovale, di Paolo Minucci, splendidamente inciso su rame da Pietro Masini su disegno di Pietro Dandini. Una tav. genealogica relativa al Minucci in fine delle pp. a numerazione romana. All'antiporta del secondo vol., è presente un altro ritratto su rame del Lippi, qui effigiato in età più matura, inciso dallo Zuccarelli su invenzione del Baldinucci. Frontespizio impresso in rosso e nero con vignetta. Capilettera e testatine ornate o figurate in rame. Ottimo esemplare, qua e là sparsamente brunito. Pregiata edizione settecentesca (la terza edizione assoluta), curata da Antonmaria Biscioni, di uno dei maggiori esperimenti di poesia eroicomica delle lettere italiane, originalmente edito nel 1676. L'opera, ripartita in dodici libri, fu intesa dal Lippi (Firenze, 1606-1664) essenzialmente come burlesca parodia della Gerusalemme Liberata, imperniata sulla contesa tra Celidora e Bertinella per il reame di Malmantile, castello diroccato presso Signa. L'idea del poema venne all'autore del vecchio castello di Malmantile, a sette miglia da Firenze, ancorché il titolo venne allegoricamente desunto da vecchie tovaglie da tavola; esso serba un notevolissimo valore linguistico, in quanto il Lippi raccolse in esso i riboboli circolanti nella lingua viva del popolo fiorentino verso la meta' del 600.

        JURISPRUDENTIA PUBLICA IMPERII ROMANO GERMANICI nova et scientifica methodo concimmata in tres tomos distincta et juris publici facta... Adjuncto duplici Indice, quorum primus in principio prospectum operis, alter in fine seriem rerum & verborum...

Ad un preliminare sulla natura ed i principi fondanti della Giurisprudenza trattata, sui diversi ordimamenti degli Imperi succedutisi nella storia, dall'Assiro al Romano ed al Romano Germanico, si traccia un'accurata mappa delle qualità e dello stato delle Leggi giurisprudenziali prendendo a silloge i salienti delle figure quale l'Imperarore, le regole d'elezione, chi possa essere eletto, le potestà che il titolo apporta, quali le qualità del Re dei Romani e dell'Augusta, quelle dei Vicari imperiali, le giurisprudenze territoriali dei vari Stati componenti l'Impero, gli Elettori e così seguendo per ogni cosa sottoposta allo Jus Imperialis. Stampato su carta greve, forte e frusciante, qualche duerno con una lievissima brunitura, in eccellente conservazione, i soli difetti già citati, è opera egregia e preclara, d'assoluto interesse.
