        A Voyage To Arabia Foelix Through the Eastern Ocean and The Streights of the Red-Sea, Being The First Made by the French in the years 1708,1709 and 1710. Together With An Account of A Journey From Mocha to Muab or Mowahib, The Court of the King of Yaman In Their Second Expedition, in the Years 1711, 1712, and 1713. Translated From the French. To Which is Added An Account of The Captivity of Sir Henry Middleton at Mokha by the Turks in the Year 1612 and his Journey from Thence to Zenan, Or, Sanaa, the Capital of the Kingdom of Yaman, With Some Additions, etc. WITH the First Treatise on the COFFEE plant to be published in the West, with its History in the Middle East and in Asia.

      E. Symon, Over-Against the Royal Exchange, London. 1732 - Xvi pages of translators preface and contents + an Approbation leaf before preface. 372 pages + 2 folding copper plates of the COFFEE plant. Full 18th century calf, a little rubbed at surface and edges inc corners. Armorial bookplate of Sir Rd Bempde Johnstone Bart (1st Baron Derwent of Hackness Hall, Yorkshire). The Treatise on coffee taken from the observations of 1709 is 15 pages and then the Account of the Captivity of Sir Henry Middleton in 1612 is 26 pages and then follows An Historical Treatise on the Origins of Coffee of 86 pages with the 2 plates at the start of this section. CONDITION: lacks early blank or blanks, nothing before title, one plate has a 3 inch closed tear but no loss. there is some handling and rubbing or aging to some pages, but rag paper is all in good order, two very minor worm holes in final two pages, not affecting text, a very good copy of this scarce work with good all round margins and textually complete. All signatures collate and NO missing text. (see photo scans and more can be provided if required). Other minor issues are pencil notes requesting the return of this book if borrowed, by previous owner Henry Pickering of Retford in Nottinghamshire, these notes are just visible on reverse of title and one blank side of one folding plate, could be removed easily, but part of its history as far as I am concerned! The book can be found on this site with the title spelt as I have done above or "Felix" which would be the more usual modern version and meaning "Happy". Notes**This work contains probably the first full description of coffee in English. The account of the Voyage and the Second Expedition in this volume are anonymous; and they were edited by Jean de La Roque (1661-1743). He was born at Marseilles, studied oriental languages, made some voyages to the Levant himself and served apparently, as correspondent to his father¿s newspaper. the captain who tells the story of the first voyage in a series of five letters, proves to be Captain Monsieur de Marveille . But he does not go on the second voyage. The account of that trip was put together by La Roque from information furnished by M. Grelaudiere, who journeyed from Mokha to Muab to cure the King of Yemen, and two ship surgeons, Noiers and Barbier. (Hunt). cf. Hunt, 489; Hünersdorff, Coffee: A Bibliography, p1284.

In contrast to earlier works, each entry summarizes all of the laws relating to the subject and offers extensive interpretive commentary. Obsolete terms are omitted. It was recognized almost immediately that Jacob created a highly useful legal encyclopedia that was more detailed and concise than any other abridgment of the period. An extremely popular work that went through twelve editions between 1729 and 1800, it offers unparalleled insights into Anglo-American law during the eighteenth century.

        The Lady's Dressing Room

      London: J. Roberts, , 1732. To which is added, a Poem on Cutting down the Old Thorn at Market Hill. Quarto, 19 pp. Recent dark blue morocco, gilt lettered spine. Wood-engraved head-pieces, initials and tail-piece. Book label of Louis & Anne Marie Davidson. Band of toning at head of leaves. A very good, generously-margined copy. First edition of Swift's "notorious and notable" (ODNB) poem, 750 copies were printed; also included here are the 10-line "Advice to a Parson. An epigram" and the 6-line "On seeing a worthy Prelate go out of Church in the Time of Divine Service". "One of Swift's most popular (if infamous) scatological poems, it appeared in numerous editions in his lifetime and elicited many responses... In the poem, Strephon sneaks into Celia's dressing room during her absence. There he finds abundant evidence that Celia is not quite the goddess he thought her to be. Most of the poem is an inventory of her personal effects - all of which are stained, soiled, and reeking from her sweat and other bodily substances. Strephon's search culminates in the unfortunate discovery of her full, putrid commode. This taints his perception of women, in general, and he in henceforth unable to see any dame without thinking of 'all her stinks'... The 'Dressing Room' has generated a great deal of psychoanalysis and gender criticism and has been read as a grotesque lampoon of the 'Puffs, powders, patches, bibles, billet-doux' littering Belinda's dressing table in The Rape of the Lock by Swift's friend Alexander Pope... Swift in this poem heartily discourages idealized views (so popular in pastorals and cavalier love lyrics) of women as anything more than mortal" (Degategno & Stubblefield, Critical Companion to Jonathan Swift: A Literary Reference to His Life and Works, 2006, pp. 213-14).

        Stato militare dell'imperio ottomanno - L'état militaire de l'empire ottoman

      Chez Pierre Gosse, Jean Neaulme & Adrien Moetjens et Chez Herm. Uytwerf & Franç. Changuion 1732 - - Chez Pierre Gosse, Jean Neaulme & Adrien Moetjens et Chez Herm. Uytwerf & Franç. Changuion, à La Haye et à Amsterdam 1732, in-folio (25,5x38cm), (4) ix-xvi 151pp. ; (4) 199pp., 2 volumes reliés en 1. - Edition originale posthume illustrée de deux grandes cartes dépliantes aquarellées, de 35 planches (dont 7 dépliantes), de 10 gravures à mi-page et de 5 bandeaux gravés par Schenk. Pages de titre bilingues en rouge et noir, texte sur deux colonnes en français et en italien. Reliure de l'époque en plein basane brune marbrée, dos orné à cinq nerfs présentant une pièce de titre (en italien) crème, filet à froid en encadrement des plats. Mors supérieur très frotté présentant de petits manques, quelques petits manques en tête du premier plat. Originaire de Bologne, un des grands berceaux européens de l'étude de la science, Luigi Ferdinando Marsigli (1658-1730), reçoit une éducation savante et montre très tôt un goût prononcé pour les sciences naturelles. Attiré par la Turquie depuis son plus jeune âge et se destinant à la carrière militaire, à l'âge de 21 ans il accompagne Ciurani, représentant de Venise auprès de la Grande Porte, pour Constantinople. Au cours de son voyage, il espionne les forces militaires des Ottomans tout en approfondissant ses connaissances en histoire naturelle. A cette époque, l'empire autrichien était régulièrement victime des assauts turcs. Fort de ses talents de stratège, il offre ses services à l'empereur Léopold Ier d'Habsbourg et est désigné, à partir de 1682, comme commandant d'une compagnie d'infanterie et est chargé de tracer les frontières entre la République de Venise, l'empire ottoman et le Saint-Empire romain germanique. Au bout de quelques mois, il est fait prisonnier par les Turcs et réduit à l'esclavage durant près d'un an, avant d'être libéré contre une rançon. Son ouvrage est un vaste travail traitant non seulement de stratégie militaire, mais aussi du commerce et de l'état des finances ottomanes. La riche iconographie accompagnant le texte montre les différents types d'armes (armes à feu, sabres, mines.) et les formations militaires de ce peuple, ainsi que ses moyens de locomotion et ses costumes. L'ouvrage témoigne de la double ambition scientifique et militaire du Comte de Marsigli qui profita de ses lointains voyages pour rapporter avec lui des spécimens et des antiquités destinés à enrichir les collections de l'Institut des sciences et des arts, au palazzo Poggi de Bologne. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] First Edition illustrated two large folding watercolor cards, 35 plates (including extendible 7), 10 prints at mid-page and 5 headpieces engraved by Schenk.

        Vorstellung der bedenklichen Umstände, in welchen sich die Portugiesische Monarchie befindet, seit dem die so genannte Gesellschaft Jesu aus Frankreichs und Spaniens Gra?nzen getrieben und verbannet worden ist ...

      Seabra da Silva (1732-1813) was a fidalgo and close ally of Pombal in his war on the Jesuits. The present work is a translation of his 1768 work in Portuguese of Petiçaö de recurso apresentada em audiencia publica a Sua Magestade, sobre o ultimo e critico estado desta monarchia, depois que a Sociedade chamada de Jesus, foi desnaturalisada e proscripta dos dominios des França e Hispana. It is a study of the Society of Jesus and its expulsion from Spain and France and the consequences thereof, and it was presented to Joseph of Portugal so that he might anticipate similar consequences following his order of expulsion.

By The Civil, Natural, And National Law. With Some Curious Admonitions For The Use Of Drousy Bishops, Sleepy Judges And Stupid Magistrates. Wherein The Great Delay Off Justice Is Fully Exposed. London: Printed by E. Rayner, for the author, and sold by the booksellers of London and Westminster, [1732?]. 47, [1] pp. [Bound with] Trenchard, Thomas [1662-1723]. A Short History of Standing Armies in England. London: Printed in the Year 1698. And Now Re-Printed and Sold by W. France, 1731. 70 pp. Octavo (7-1/4" x 4-1/2"). Stab-stitched pamphlets bound into recent period-style quarter calf over marbled boards, gilt-edged raised bands to spine. Light toning to text, somewhat heavier in places, light foxing to a few leaves. Excellent copies in a handsome binding. * State of Justice: only edition; Short History: reissue of a title issued three times in 1698. The anonymous author of The State of Justice positions himself as an opponent of bribery and the sale of offices and sinecures and a supporter of an equal distribution of justice and the rule of law. He warns: "It is not the law alone that makes a right government, but upright justice, and the equal distribution of it, which ought to be deeper engraven in the hearts of those who are authorised to execute justice, than in tables of stone" (9). It is a learned, and somewhat cranky, essay filled with references to Roman, European and English history. Trenchard's Short Essay is a classic argument against standing armies, a central theme in the commonwealthmen tradition (that was quite influential in America). This issue was probably a reaction to the expansion of England's military establishment during the Anglo-Spanish War (1727-29) The State of Justice is a rare title. OCLC locates 6 copies worldwide, 4 in North America (Case Western Reserve University, Harvard Law School, Northwestern Law School, UNC-Chapel Hill). The ESTC adds the University of Kansas.

        A New Law-Dictionary, Containing, The Interpretation and Definition

      1732. "An Entirely New Departure in Legal Literature" Jacob, Giles [1686-1744]. A New Law-Dictionary: Containing, The Interpretation and Definition of Words and Terms Used in the Law; and Also the Whole Law, and the Practice Thereof, Under All the Heads and Titles of the Same. Together With Such Informations Relating Thereto, as Explain the History and Antiquity of the Law, and Our Manners, Customs, and Original Government. Collected and Abstracted From All Dictionaries, Abridgments, Institutes, Reports, Year-Books, Charters, Registers, Chronicles, and Histories, Published to This Time. And Fitted for the Use of Barristers, Students, and Practisers of the Law, Members of Parliament, and Other Gentlemen, Justices of Peace, Clergymen, &c. With Large Additions. To Which is Annexed, a Table of References to All the Arguments and Resolutions of the Lord Chief Justice Holt; In the Several Volumes of the Reports. London: Printed by E. and R. Nutt, and Richard Gosling, 1732. [796] pp. Main text printed in double columns within ruled borders. Folio (13-1/2" x 8-1/4"). Contemporary calf, blind fillets along joints, rebacked in period style, lettering piece and gilt-edged raised bands to spine, endpapers renewed, corners mended.

Moderate toning, occasional faint dampstaining and dampspotting, hole in inner margin of leaf Eeee4 just touching text with no loss to legibility, internally clean. Ex-library. Small inkstamp to title page. A nice copy. * Second edition. As Cowley has pointed out, A New Law-Dictionary was both Jacob's masterpiece and "an entirely new departure in legal literature" that provided a model for several subsequent efforts. In contrast to earlier works, each entry summarizes all of the laws relating to the subject and offers extensive interpretive commentary. Obsolete terms are omitted. It was recognized almost immediately that Jacob created a highly useful legal encyclopedia that was more detailed and concise than any other abridgment of the period. An extremely popular work that went through twelve editions between 1729 and 1800, it offers unparalleled insights into Anglo-American law during the eighteenth century.

        Academicas oraçoens phisico-anatomico-medico-cirurgicas, em que practicam os mais eruditos discipulos da nova Academia das Quatro Sciencias, para a comverçam do errado lastimoso povo apolino.

      Antwerp [i.e., Lisbon?], Na Officina Plantiniana, 1732. - 4°, contemporary speckled sheep (some wear, especially to one corner), spine with raised bands in five compartments, gilt with floral tooling and fillets, crimson leather lettering piece richly gilt with floral tooling and gilt letter, text block edges sprinkled red. Woodcut initials. Woodcut and typographical headpieces. Large woodcut tailpieces. Very small wormtrail in upper outer corner of first three leaves; another minor trail in lower margin of last two leaves; tiny pinpoint wormhole in lower margin of final ten leaves; none of these ever affecting any text. Some leaves lightly browned; a few more heavily so. In very good condition. Contemporary ink ownership inscription of a Franciscan library in upper margin of title-page. Another contemporary ink signature on verso of plate. Engraved bookplate of Freitas Simões. Frontispiece, (13 ll.), 320 pp. [pp. 57-64 misnumbered 87-94], (16 ll.). *** FIRST EDITION. Monravá e Roca was a colorful and controversial figure of eighteenth-century medicine. Born in Pons (Catalonia), he studied in Barcelona, Valencia and Lérida, where he received his degree. After working in Spain for ten years he travelled to Portugal and accepted the chair in anatomy at the Hospital de Todos os Santos, Lisbon. There his merits as well as his defects proved so great that no one could regard him with indifference: some called him a charlatan, a few a scatter-brained genius. In 1732, just before this work appeared, Monravá e Roca lost his position to Bernardo Santucci. He maintained a surgical practice in Lisbon and enjoyed considerable fame in that field.Monravá e Roca also established a school of his own, the Academy of the Four Sciences, at which he taught anatomy, surgery, medicine and natural sciences. Ferreira de Mira states that it was founded in 1739 and was closed by government order two months later. On the title page of this 1732 work, however, Monravá e Roca calls himself "Presidente Fundador da nova Academia das Quatro Sciencias," and Innocêncio comments that the school continued to draw students until its founder died in 1753.The Academicas oraçoens seem to be essays by students of Monravá e Roca; the eighth oração, for example, is entitled "Phisiologico-medica oraçam VIII sobre tres quimeras dos medicos, que dice Miguel Gonzalves Gliz, discipulo Academico da Nova Academia, Phisico-Anatomico-Medico-Chyrurgia do Hospital Real de Todos os Santos de Lisboa Occidental, no Introito de hum acto de Conclusoens, que defendeo" (p. 214).The frontispiece (unsigned) depicts an operating room during a surgical procedure, within an allegorical border representing the four disciplines of Monravá e Roca's Academy.The first leaf of the final section of 16 unnumbered leaves begins with two sonnets addressed to Monravá e Roca by his students Manoel dos Santos Ferreyra and Paulo Teyxeyra. The fifteen leaves that follow contain an index.Provenance: Fernando de Freitas Simões (1896-1972), distinguished Portuguese physician and important book collector. His library was dispersed through sales by Christie's London (1974?) and Arnaldo Henriques de Oliveira of Lisbon (1976), through private sales by the sons of his first wife, and by his second wife.*** Lisbon, Faculdade de Medicina, Catálogo da collecção portuguesa I, 190.

        Het leven en bedryf van Michiel de Ruiter. 3e druk.

      Amsterdam, Hermanus Uytwerf, Rotterdam, Jan Daniel Beman, 1732.Folio. Contemporary calf, spine gilt (extremities of spine dam.). With allegorical engraved title, title-page printed in red and black, engraved portrait, engraved plate of De Ruiter's tomb, and 4 (of 7) double-page plates of sea-battles and views by Stoopendaal. (4),1065,(23) pp.Third edition, first published in 1687. - Biography of one of the most famous admirals in Dutch history, Michiel Adriaenszn. de Ruyter (1607-1676), also of great interest for Dutch political and economic history. Dealing with the early voyages to Jan Mayen Island (whaling), Morocco (Barbary Coast), during this time his esteem grew among other Dutch captains as he would regularly free Christian slaves by redeeming them at his own expense, and the Baltic: he managed to liberate Nyborg in 1659, for this he was knighted by the Danish king Frederick III of Denmark. After he recaptured Guinea on the English in 1664 he crossed the Atlantic to raid the English colonies in America. Visited the Caribbean islands, delivered supplies to the Dutch colony of St. Eustatius, and was engaged in Spanish-Dutch sea-fights and conquests. Giving the damage he had sustained at a certain moment he decided against an assault on New York to retake New-Netherland. He fought the English in the first three Anglo-Dutch Wars. His most famous exploit was against the English fleet: the Raid on the Medway in 1667. He sailed up the Thames to Chatham and burned three ships and captured the English flagship HMS Royal Charles, which he took with him back to Holland. It was a costly and embarrassing defeat for the English. On 18 March 1678 De Ruyter was given a state funeral when his body was buried in the Nieuwe Kerk in Amsterdam. He was succeeded as supreme commander by Cornelis Tromp in 1679. De Ruyters' flagship De Zeven Provinciën is being rebuilt in the Dutch town Lelystad. Cat.

Cioranescu 14395. Reusch II, 139. Brunet III, 196: "Ouvrage inexact, et rédigé dans un esprit hostile à la cour de Rome." Barbier II, 760: "Le véritable auteur du fonds de l”Histoire des papes’ est un bénédictin de la congrégation de Saint-Maur. Voir le ‘Journal des Savants’, édit. de Hollande, juin et août 1752." – François Bruys (1708-1738) konvertierte als Zwanzigjähriger zum Protestantismus, kehrte aber zwei Jahre vor seinem frühen Tod wieder in den Schoß der Kirche zurück; auf das kuriale Verbot des Werkes hatte dieser Sinneswandel keinen Einfluß: die Papstgeschichte wurde 1750 auf den Index gesetzt (Catalogue des ouvrages mis à l’index, 2. Aufl., Paris 1826, S. 155). Wenn sie wirklich auf der Arbeit eines Mauriners basiert, ist es bei dem im allgemeinen hohen Grad von deren Gelehrsamkeit verwunderlich, daß das Werk so negativ beurteilt wurde – vielleicht spielte dafür doch der falsche Glaube des Autors die wesentliche Rolle. – Einbände mit kleinen Absplitterungen, etwas beschabt, gering bestoßen.

        A New Drawing Book of Modes.

      Oblong sm. London: Richard Ware, [1732]. Oblong sm. 8vo, engraved title and 12 engraved plates numbered 2-13. Retrospective marbled boards binding retaining the original red morocco label on the upper cover. Short vertical tear to the title-page not affecting the text and with no loss. Otherwise a fine copy. First edition of this detailed visual guide to hairstyles, costumes, even gestures or postures of early 18th-century London. The plates were engraved by Bickham, Cole, and Picart himself. Charles B. Wood is the only record found of a copy selling in the last 50+ years. He noted: “A charming little drawing book which is in fact partly a pattern book of hair and hat syles as well as showing modes and attitudes of posture and behavior. In this respect the work is something of a courtesy book. The plates were engraved by George Bickham Jr. and B. Cole (these two signed their plates) as well, presumably, as Picart, who did not sign his plates. Picart was a prolific author and engraver; the UCBA catalogue lists 17 works by him, including the present. Both the Colas and Hiler bibliographies list several works on fashion by Picard but not the present title. A little book of much charm and appeal. NUC locates but one copy, the Clark Library at UCLA.”
