        Imperio de la China y cultura evangelica en el, por los Religiosos de la Compania de Jesus, sacado de las noticias del P. Alvaro Semmedo... [Empire of China and the Christian culture of the Society of Jesus, taken from the accounts of P. Alvaro Semmedo]

      Lisbon: Officina Herreriana, 1731 Book. Very Good. Leather Bound. 2nd Edition. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Lisbon: Officina Herreriana, 1731. Second Spanish Edition. Small Folio. [xix], 252 pp. Period style dark brown gilt tooled full calf with a red gilt morocco label. A few leaves with minor repair to blank margins, otherwise a very good copy. Rare work. Semedo was the Portuguese Procurado General for China. This is a general description of Chinese society which describes the foreign missions and the Manchu campaigns. The manuscript was written by Semedo in Goa in 1638 and contains the first description of tea in a European work on China. "Semedo first arrived in China in 1613, and worked there for the next twenty-four years. During this time he was associated with Johann Adam Schall von Bell, whom he joined at Xian in 1628, and was responsible for the first European translation of the engraved pillar commemorating the arrival of the Nestorian Alopen. Sent back to Europe as procurator in Rome for the China mission, he called at Goa, where in 1638 he completed his Relacao da propagacao de fe no regno da China e outras adjacentes, a valuable account of the conditions in China at the end of the Ming dynasty. The Portuguese original of the work eventually reached the hands of the Portuguese historian, Manuel Faria y Sousa, who edited it into an historical form and had it translated into Spanish"(Howgego S81). "This work gives a long account of China, its various provinces, inhabitants and their manners and customs, Government and Military Art, propagation of the Gospel, and more particularly an account of the labours of the Jesuits there" (Cox. I, p. 323); Cordier Sinica 23-24; "On 29 March 1608, [Semedo] left for Goa and the Far East aboard Na. Sra. Do Vencimento. He arrived to Macau in 1610, and to Nanjing in 1613. Along with another Jesuit, Alfonso Vagnoni, he was imprisoned during an anti-Christian campaign in Nanjing in 1616, and then sent back to Macau, where he stayed till 1621. As the persecution campaign in the mainland China abated, Fr. Semedo changed his Chinese name from Xie Wulu to Zeng Dezhao and re-entered China, now working in Jiangsu and Jiangnan provinces. He spent most of his term in China in the central and southern provinces; perhaps his only trip north was the one he made to Xi'an in 1625, during which he was the first European to see the recently unearthed Nestorian Stele" (Wikipedia)..

        Refutation Des Erreurs De Benoit De Spinosa, etc

      Francois Foppens, 1731-01-01. Hardcover. Good. 12mo. Contemporary 1/4 calf with marbled boards. [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. <br><br>Contents: Principally containing Fenelonâ&#128;&#153;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 François Lami; Extrait d&#39;une lettre de Monseigneur de FeÌ&#129;nelon ... sur la Refutation de Spinosa . <br><br> FIRST EDITION of Fénelon&#39;s critique of Spinoza, also reprinting a French version of the biography of Spinoza by Johann Colerus, and a Latin refutation of Spinoza and Johannes Bredenburg by Isaac Orobio de Castro. Tchemerzine (1977) III, 232b; Linde 107. <br>Provenance: Stamp of Alfonso Cassuto on title. <br> Much of the work is devoted to an attempt to combat the perceived atheism of Spinozaâ&#128;&#153;s philosophy. Paul Janet suggests that Bayleâ&#128;&#153;s Dictionary was Fenelon and other French criticsâ&#128;&#153; principle source of information on Spinozaâ&#128;&#153;s work, and that the loss of Spinozaâ&#128;&#153;s subtleties in the reduction was the root of much of the criticism.

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

      1731. [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.

Testo su due colonne greco e latino, corredato, in calce, di amplissime note filologioche. Alcune vignette incise su rame n.t. Lievi bruniture. Ottimo esemplare. Stimata edizione bilingue, la prima curata dal Gronovius, della "Poikile Historia" di Eliano, presente sia nell'originale greco che nella versione latina dovuta a Justus Will, latinizzato in Justus Vultejus (Wetter, 1529-Marburgo, 1575), pedagogista e filologo, professore di ebraico a Marburgo. La prima edizione del testo di Eliano curato dal Will era apparsa a Basilea nel 1543. L'opera di Eliano è una compilazione erudita in 14 libri del tutto asistematica e derivata dalla sparse letture dell'autore; la sua importanza deriva più che altro dalle citazioni che in essa ricorrono di opere perdute della classicità. Tra le molte curiosità di cui si discorre nell'opera: come un leone malato possa guarire soltanto mangiando una scimmia, come Socrate bevve la cicuta, i combattimenti tra galli, gli amori degli Spartani, la violenza dei Bizantini, la lotta di Eracle e Lepreo, i costumi dei Persiani, ecc. Claudio Eliano, nato a Preneste, l'attuale Palestrina, verso il 170, morto nel 235 ca., allievo del sofista Pausania di Cesarea, fu professore di retorica a Roma e "pontifex" nella sua città natale.

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.

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)..

        Plate 91 - Cereus flagellifornis. Linn. Cierge serpentant (cactus)

      Pierre Joseph Buchoz (1731-1807)Illustrated plate from Les Dons Merveilleux et Diversement Coloriés de la Nature dans Le Règne VègètaleParis, 1779-1783Hand-colored copperplate engravingSheet size: 18 ½? x 11 ¼?Pierre Joseph Buchoz (also spelled Buc'hoz) was a French lawyer, physician, botanist and naturalist and was very interested in the medicinal virtues of various plants. He was also a prolific author of botanical books in the latter half of the 18th century. Born in Metz (France), Buchoz was meant for a career in law, but soon turned to medicine, and was appointed as the physician to King Stanislaus of Poland when he was 28. Accused of not fulfilling his duties, Buchoz quit, and devoted his energies to the study of botany, medicine, economics and mineralogy, eventually publishing over 300 volumes on these subjects. Although he is held in low esteem by the scientific botanists, due to his persistence in re-using plates with different attributions, his decorative and artistic sense places him high in the ranks of eighteenth-century flower book authors.

Three bookplates on front pastedown, modest tanning, some very tiny worm tracks in extreme edges of the portrait of Wycliffe, divisional title and first leaf of text of the NT nearly detached at gutter and a bit creased, light occasional foxing, a few short tears at the fore-edge of the folding plate, otherwise a very good copy. First printing in book form of Wycliffe&#39;s translation of the New Testament, accompanied by the extensive prefatory "History..." by John Lewis. At Wycliffe&#39;s instigation, a group of scholars prepared this translation into Middle English of the New Testament from the Latin Vulgate in 1380, and though popular, it circulated only in manuscript until this edition. Over two hundred manuscript versions are known, many of them of the revised version prepared by John Purvey. In 1409 the Wycliffe version was condemned as heretical and outlawed in Britain. This edition was published by subscription, and the edition, including some copies on large paper, is reported to have consisted of only 160 copies. An advertisement leaf, a list of subscribers, and a page of errata follow the dedication. The frontis portrait of John Lewis and the portrait of Wycliffe are signed in the plate by G. White, and the engraved folding plate is based on the frontis of the Cranmer Bible. While well represented in institutions, copies of this edition are uncommon in the market place: ABPC records only three appearances since 1999, and only one of them, the Macclesfield copy sold in 2006, was complete with both the portraits, as is this copy.
