A major product of the Propaganda Fide's efforts to convert Arabic-speaking people in the 18th century, including the rare instructions for confession and communion.

        Handschriftliches Arbeitszeugnis des Hofapothekers Caspar Neumann für Maria Elisabeth Danielin (Daniel) vom 27. Juni 1731.

      Berlin 1731. Ein Blatt, 14,5 x 19 cm. (Papier leicht nachgedunkelt, gut erhalten) Handschrift auf Papier in einem neueren Rahmen hinter Glas (25 x 30 cm). In alter Schönschrift mit einem Siegel, darauf die Inschrift "Königliche Hoffapothec" sowie die Initialen FWR (Friedrich Wilhelm Rex) und eine Krone. "Daß Vorzeigerin dieses, Maria Elisabeth Danielin, gebürtig aus Freyenwalde an der Oder 6. Jahr, sage sechs hintereinander folgende Jahr lang bey mir, als ein Dienstmägdchen gedienet, und während solcher Zeit sich getreu, fleißig und recht wohl verhalten hat, habe ich hiermit, auf Verlangen, attestieren wollen; wir wir (sic!) dann selbige auch noch länger würden behalten haben, wenn sie nicht entschlossen, sich zu verheirathen. Berlin d. 27. Junii 1731. Caspar Neumann Med Dr. Königl. Professor und Hoffapotheker". 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.

        The History of of the High Court of Parliament. London, 1731.

      1731 - Early History of the High Court of Parliament [Gurdon, Thornhagh (1663-1733)]. The History of the High Court of Parliament, Its Antiquity, Preheminence [sic] and Authority; and The History of Court Baron and Court Leet, A Chronological History of Them From the Earliest Times Drawn Down to the Present. Together with the Rights of Lords of Manors in Common Pastures, and the Growth of Privileges the Tenants Now Enjoy There. London: Printed for R. Knaplock, 1731. Two works in one; The History of Court Baron and Court Leek has separate title page. Two volumes. Octavo (5" x 8"). Contemporary paneled calf, raised bands, lettering piece. Wear to board edges and spine ends, corners bumped, joints starting. Front free endpaper lacking from Volume Two. Attractive woodcut head-pieces, tail-pieces and decorated initials. Early armorial bookplates to versos of title pages (of first work). Wear to endleaves and preliminaries with some loss, dampstaining to lower half of text blocks. Still a solid set. * This important early history includes a subject index and an interesting index of the books and manuscripts used by the author. "In this historical account of the government of England, of its senates and councils or parliaments, I take a cursory view of them in other nations, as introductory to the British, Saxon and Norman national councils or Parliaments, and so gradually slide down from Antiquity to modern times, shewing the conformity of modern with ancient constitutions; how ancient Laws and Decrees have been, some of them confirmed, some amended, and some totally abrogated, according to the wisdom of the several ages, thereby in a short history giving the reader a large view into times past.": Preface, Volume One, v-vi. The second work treats the history of two early feudal courts. Court Baron arbitrated dealings between the lords of manors and their tenants. Court Leet was a court held by the right of franchise in which a private lord oversaw land under a sheriff's jurisdiction. Catalogue of the Library of the Harvard Law School (1909) I:839.

Lisbon: Officina Ferreiriana, 1733. [16],102,[1]pp. Internally clean and fresh, with minor worming in lower margin of final seven leaves. Both titles in very good condition. The second edition of Galvao's history of exploration and voyages, after the virtually unobtainable first edition of 1563. According to Sabin, this second edition "is also rare, the greater portion having been destroyed by an earthquake." Galvao's text was translated in 1601 by Hakluyt, who complained about the rarity of the first edition even then, and had to rely on a copy sent from Lisbon. Currently, only three copies of the first edition are known, including one at the John Carter Brown Library. Born in 1503, Galvao was sent to India in 1527, and after distinguishing himself there, he was appointed governor of the Moluccas. He maintained a keen interest in military and religious affairs throughout his career, and spent the latter part of his life assembling accounts of the voyages that comprise this collection. He provides a relatively succinct chronological list of ancient and modern discoveries to the year 1550, including those by Columbus, Cabral, Cortés, and Pizarro. "The author has been styled 'the founder of historical geography.' The book gives a good summary of the geographical explorations of the Portuguese and other important voyagers, including the English" - Hill. Bound with Galvao's TRATADO... is the second edition Francisco Moreno Porcel's biography and critical appreciation of the Portuguese poet and historian, Manuel de Faria y Sousa (1590-1649), enlarged from the first edition of 1650. Faria y Sousa is known for his enormous commentary on Camões' OS LUSIADAS, his historical writings on Portuguese expansion, and his own poetry. A key collection of voyages, here in the first obtainable edition, bound with a contemporary edition by the same publisher of a biography of the historian of Portuguese expansion, Faria y Sousa.

C'est surtout cette édition, devenue encore plus rare que l'originale, qui contribua à sa notoriété. Elle fut traduite en plusieurs langues (latine, allemande, hollandaise puis anglaise) et devint le traité de référence en otologie pendant plus d'un siècle. Le traité de Duverney fut le premier véritable traité d'otologie, traitant de l'anatomie, de la physiologie et des affections de l'oreille. Cette monographie comporte la première description précise des osselets, ainsi que de la vascularisation et de l'innervation de l'oreille. Duverney décrit les incisures, le canalis medius et le canalis semi-circularis superior, qui porteront son nom. Il montre que les cellules mastoïdiennes communiquent avec la cavité tympanique. Il est le premier à reconnaître à la trompe dEustache un rôle d¿aération de la caisse, et au labyrinthe un rôle important dans la perception des sons. Il conçoit la première théorie convenable de l'audition. En pathologie, il est le premier à contester l'origine cérébrale de l'otite, affirmant que le pus vient de la cavité tympanique. Cet ouvrage est orné de seize belles planches gravées, signées « R.Blokh F. » Guichard Joseph Duverney (1648-1730), né à Feurs, étudia la médecine à Avignon, puis partit à Paris. Il devint démonstrateur d'anatomie au Jardin du Roi, entra à l'Académie des sciences et fut nommé professeur d'anatomie. Il fut l'un des plus grands anatomistes du XVIIème siècle et un enseignant remarquable. cf.

[4] (of [10]), 158; 183 [i. e., 483], [2] pages, including half-title; lacks the 3 preliminary leaves following the title. Internally generally good, with clean, unmarked pages. Contents: Principally containing Fenelon?s Refutation de Spinosa; also includes, Vie de Spinosa / [par M. Colerus]; Refutation de Spinosa / [par le comte de Boulainvilliers] ; Extrait du Nouvel atheisme renverse, ou refutation du sisteme de Spinosa, / par Dom Franc?ois Lami; Extrait d'une lettre de Monseigneur de Fe?nelon . sur la Refutation de Spinosa .

Tchemerzine (1977) III, 232b; Linde 107. Provenance: Stamp of Alfonso Cassuto on title. Much of the work is devoted to an attempt to combat the perceived atheism of Spinoza?s philosophy. Paul Janet suggests that Bayle?s Dictionary was Fenelon and other French critics? principle source of information on Spinoza?s work, and that the loss of Spinoza?s subtleties in the reduction was the root of much of the criticism.

Interior browned, Vol. II with the leaf before the title announcing the Royal Society's authorisation of publication, some dampstaining to the end. Ownership inscription H. Pemberton on flyleaf of Vol. 1. Contemporary full calfs, rebacked. PMM 189, Horblit 45b. - FIRST EDITION of Vol. 2 and SECOND EDITION of vol. 1. Hales applied his training in biology and mathematics (including physics) to make important scientific investigations presented in these separately published volumes. The first volume, Vegetable staticks, Hales describes his investigations of plant physiology, including the movement of water in plants and determining the three factors of water movement: root suction, root pressure and leaf suction. He also established that plants lose water continuously during transpiration through leaves. His quantitative measurements of these phenomena enabled him to show the rate of transpiration varied with temperature. Hales established that plants do not have true circulation system, and developed techniques of measuring the varying growth rates in different plant structures. The second volume, or Haemastaticks, 'contains the studies on blood pressure which make Hales one of the founders of modern experimental physiology. The application of the principle of the pressure-gauge or manometer enabled him to measure blood pressure during the contraction of the heart. He computed the circulation rate and estimated the velocity of the blood in the veins, arteries and capillary vessels and by showing that the capillary vessels are liable to constriction and dilation he made an important contribution both to the study of physiology and the practice of the physician of today . Hales' work marked the greatest advance in the physiology of the circulation between Harvey and the introduction of the mercury manometer and other instruments for the measurement of blood pressure by J.L.M. Poiseuille in 1828' (PMM). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Amsterdam, Isaak Tirion 1731 - Two parts in one volume. Eight books to the first part, nine to the second. Folio. Pp. xii-xxii (partly set in double columns), 32 (list of chronological events), 33-36 with a Privilege by the Staten van Holland, 1552 numbered columns, (33) index, set in 3 columns, (4) concordance, (2) index of Greek and Latin authors, (1) errata.

Plus 7 double-page copper engraved maps, one of which is a folding plan of Jerusalem Temple with extended legend in letterpress on two text panels. With fine copper engraving of the Holy Altar and one table to the text. Large engraved initial to head of each book, followed by a smaller one; tail-pieces. Footnotes, side-notes, appendices. Hardcover, bound in contemporary full calf, spine in 7 compartments between gilt-tooled raised bands, gilt morocco label in 2nd compartment, remainders with central gilt-tooled ornaments, each within gilt ornamental frame, gilt-tooled bevelled edges, all edges sprinkled; leather shows light signs of wear, with a small chip at head of spine and a short split at head of lower joint, gutter after blank prelim split. In a very fine internal condition. Exceptionally well preserved interior with crisp leaves and a crisp, practically unused set of maps. ~ Second edition. The first edition was printed in 1723 by Joannes vander Linden of Leiden, who first intended to publish the work in a decent quarto but ended with a two-volume, rather thick and clumsy octavo (he even contemplated a three-volume set but gave up the idea). In 1729 he decided to sell the publishing rights to Isaak Tirion of Amsterdam, who in 1731 published this edition, the first (and last) to be printed in royal folio, measuring 41 x 28cm. Tirion could now reset the work in elegant and practical double-column format, add a large, magnificant frontispiece, and allow the handsome maps the freedom to remain unfolded double-page generous folios.

King at ye Globe in ye Poultrey [sic] near Stocks Market, [1731].. Copper-engraved map, with period outline color, on two joined sheets. Overall size of joined sheets: 41 1/4 x 24 3/4 inches. Good condition apart from expertly repaired tears to folds. Very good. A fine copy of state four (of five) of the famous Beaver map of the English and French colonies in North America. "One of the first and most important cartographic documents relating to the ongoing dispute between France and Great Britain over boundaries separating their respective American colonies...The map was the primary exponent of the British position during the period immediately following the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713" - DEGREES OF LATITUDE. The British colonies according to British claims are outlined in red, with the French very lightly outlined in blue. All territory south of the St. Lawrence River and eastern Great Lakes is shown as British. Numerous notations relating to territorial claims, Indian tribes, the fur trade, and the condition of the land cover the face of the map. This map shows the early 18th-century postal routes in the British colonies, and is frequently called the first American postal map. There are four insets, including a large map of coastal South Carolina, and a plan of Charleston. At lower left is a map of Florida and the Deep South, which is based on a map by Thomas Nairne, the Indian agent for South Carolina. The most striking feature is the large vignette which gives the map its popular name. It consists of an early view of Niagara Falls, with a colony of beavers at work in the foreground. Pritchard holds that the beaver "was an appropriate image for the North American map for two reasons: the animal's importance to the fur trade, and its industrious nature."

        A New and Exact map of the Dominions of the King of Great Britain on the Continent of North America

      London., 1731. containing Newfoundland, New Scotland, New England, New York, New Jersey, Pensilvania, Maryland, Virginia and Carolina. According to the Newest and most Exact Observations By Herman Moll Geographer. 2 sheets joined. Size: 1335 x 625 mm. Copperplate engraving, with original outline colour. Some skilful paper restoration to map folds and to worm holes. Excellent overall condition. Born in Germany, Herman Moll emigrated to London in 1680. His cartographic works enjoy a high reputation and are well known for their accuracy and their style. This map of the British dominions in North America is perhaps his most famous work, widely known by its nickname the "beaver map" after the beautiful large cartouche depicting an assembly line of Canadian beavers, seen working industriously and harmoniously cutting down trees, and subsequently damming a river in order to make their lodges, a richly symbolic message for the emerging North American nation. The beavers suggest that, by controlling their environment and by working as a team, wealth and its associated benefits can be achieved for all. It is also worth noting that beaver pelts, and the fur trade in general, were important early components in the economy of North America. The cartouche itself is derived from the earlier works of Hennepin (c. 1697) and de Fer (1713). Moll's map was hugely important from the historical standpoint of depicting and highlighting long running Anglo-French border disputes. All territory south of the St. Lawrence River, and territory east of the Great Lakes was deemed to be British. This tremendous map by Moll is one of the first large scale maps showing British developments in North America and, in addition, also shows for the first time American postal routes. There are four large and impressive insets highlighting British interests, and a delightful decorative map dedication to the Hon Walter Dowglass, captain general and chief governor of the Leeward Islands in America. The map also contains a wealth of comment and information concerning Native American tribes, colonial claims, settlements, and such like. This map is an important rendering of early British colonialism and as such is highly prized and sought after.

        Tentamina Experimentorum Naturalium captorum in Academia del Cimento...quibus Commentarios, Nova Experimenta, et Orationem de Methodo Instituendi Experimenta Physica addidit

      Thirty-two folding engraved plates & one folding printed table. Title in red & black. 8 p.l., xlviii, [12], 193 pp.; 192, [14] pp. Two parts in one vol. 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. A fine and handsome copy. ❧ Wheeler Gift Cat. 276. .
