Contemporary full vellum with handwritten title to spine. Title pages in red and black lettering. Title vignettes. Decorative head-, tailpieces and initials. Originally published in Leeuwarden in 1714 (Vol. 1) and 1720 (Vol. 2), this two volume set commentary on Isaiah is Campegius Vitringa's magnum opus. It forms the basis for the commentaries of J. E. Leigh (1726-34), J. J. Rambach (1741), and A. F. Büsching (1749-51).The celebrated German orientalist, and Biblical critic Heinrich Friedrich Wilhelm Gesenius (1786-1842) was particularily emphatic in its commendation; declaring that [the book] not only made an epoch in the study of Isaiah, but outweighs the earlier and a good part of the later expositions. In wealth of philological and exegetical learning, aptness of illustration, and fulness of historical information, Gesenius declares that Vitringa's Commentary on Isaiah is by no means superseded.In the first volume a double page map with descriptive text illustrating Moabite territory in the Dead Sea region follows page 458. Binding partly darkened/soiled and age-toned. Some abrasion to head and tail of spine. Foxing to endpapers. Front free endpaper, half-title and title slightly creased. Minor and sporadic foxing and age-toning throughout. Text in Latin with some Hebrew. Binding in overall fair to good-, interior in good+ to very good condition. About the author: Campegius Vitringa (1659-1722) was a Dutch Protestant theologian and Hebraist. A follower of Johannes Cocceius,Vitringa was a supporter of prophetic theology. He was educated at the universities of Franeker and Leiden, and became professor of Oriental languages at the former in 1681. When locating prophetic outcomes, he would associate events to the near rather than the far-off future, placing a distinct focus on the period of the Maccabees (2nd Century BC). Like Joseph Mede (1586-1638), Vitringa believed wholeheartedly that the Millennium was yet to come, but did not expect any immediate changes. He relegated the end of the time to a remote future and strongly emphasized the concept of New Jerusalem (From Wikipedia).

        A Collection of Voyages and Travels

      John Walthoe, London 1732 - Eight volumes, folio, comprising two works in matching bindings, containing some 213 engraved plates including work by Herman Moll, Johannes Kip, and others (many double-page or folding), engraved and woodcut illustrations throughout; late eighteenth-century Russia, marbled edges. A splendid set of the two great voyage anthologies of the early eighteenth century, in handsome contemporary matched bindings. This set contains the Churchill anthology in its second improved edition and the first edition of the supplementary Osborne series, better known as the "Harleian" or "Oxford Voyages". Osborne's first volume comprises travels mainly in the Near and Middle East, while the second volume comprises voyages to India, East Asia, the East Indies, Africa, and North America. The maps are after Dutch cartographer Herman Moll and the frontispiece map in the second volume is "A Chart of the East Indies?" with the north and north-west coasts of Australia delineated in accordance with Dutch discoveries.Copies of the various editions of the Churchill Collection appear on the market from time to time, almost always in dilapidated condition - the result of their substantial size and the use that they were subjected to as the major source for voyage information in the early eighteenth century. This copy is in superb condition, the bindings bright and the text and plates remarkably fresh. The substantial volumes contain many accounts of voyages to a great many places, a number appearing for the first time, or at least for the first time in English. Originally published in 1704 in four volumes, it appears here in its second, much augmented six-volume edition. The success of the work is a reflection of an audience keenly interested in what was a time of energetic exploration and trade expansion throughout the world. For example, the first volume here contains descriptions of the lands and peoples of China, Formosa, Japan, the Congo, and South Africa, lands just beginning to be known to Europeans, as well as accounts of relatively less mysterious but still unfamiliar places such as Egypt and the Ukraine.The fifth volume is devoted largely to Africa, containing accounts of the lands which in the seventeenth century were called Guinea and Lower Ethiopia, but which in fact include the entire coast from Senegal through Angola. Native life, European settlements, animals, natural products, and much more are described in great detail. There is also a translation from the Spanish of Herrera's account of the discoveries of Columbus.The contents of the other volumes are varied, with reports of the Solomon Islands, Dutch shipwrecks in the East Indies, Ovalle's work on Chile (with a fine depiction of the Southern Cross), Virginia, attempts to discover a Northwest Passage, the sages of India, and the land of Tonqueen, now North Vietnam, among very many other reports. Much of the third volume is Baldaeus' work on the East Indies translated from the Dutch, while Nieuhoff's work on the East Indies, also translated, appears in the second volume.The plates are of special appeal, often showing very striking scenes of exotic life, particularly in tropical climes. They include detailed depictions of natives involved in sometimes fascinating activities (witchcraft, elephant catching) as well as many plates of botanical and zoological interest and a number of views of harbours or military engagements.This set is supplemented by the two-volume work by Thomas Osborne, generally known as the "Harleian Voyages" or the "Oxford Voyages". These two very scarce volumes were published by Osborne from the unpublished manuscripts in the collection of the earl of Oxford. Although separately published much later, the two Osborne volumes are often described as a supplement to the Churchill collection of voyages.Osborne's first volume comprises travels mainly in the Near and Middle East, while the second volume comprises voyages to India, East Asia, the East Indies, Africa, and North A [Attributes: First Edition]

        Du pouvoir executif dans les grands etats., , .

      , - Due volumi di cm. 21,5, pp. (4) 407 (1); (4) 367 (1). Graziosa legatura novecentesca di foggia antica con titoli e fregi in oro al dorso. Lievi fioriture/bruniture sparse, peraltro esemplare in barbe e complessivamente ben conservato. Jacques Necker (1732-1804), celebre economista ginevrino, fu ministro delle Finanze di Luigi XVI e ricoprì numerosi incarichi politici di primissimo piano, non riuscendo però a coniugare le sue grandi qualità di economista a un dinamico pragmatismo politico. Quest'importante opera è dedicata al ruolo del potere esecutivo e alla separazione dei poteri nelle nazioni moderne. Di particolare interesse i capitoli dedicati al confronto tra il sistema politico francese e inglese e quello statunitense, alla figura di George Washington ,alla costituzione americana e infine all'esperienza federale statunitense.

        [Sammelband containing 11 plays, including 3 first editions by Fielding:] The Old Debauchees; The Covent-Garden Tragedy; The Mock Doctor

      8vo. Contemporary Cambridge calf. Extremities rubbed, joints cracked, lacking spine label, occasional spotting and soiling to text. 8vo. Sammelband of eleven dramatic works, including three rare first editions by Henry Fielding, as follows: [FIELDING, Henry]. The Old Debauchees. A Comedy. As it is Acted at the Theatre-Royal in Drury-Lane. [iv], 40 pp. London: J. Watts, 1732. First performed 1 June 1732 at the Theatre-Royal in Drury Lane with The Covent-Garden Tragedy (see next). The two plays ran together for 6 nights, after which The Covent-Garden Tragedy, was replaced by The Mock Doctor. The plot, which involves a Catholic priest's attempts to seduce a young woman, was based loosely on the case of the Jesuit Father Girard, who was tried and convicted for using magic to seduce Marie Catharine Cadier. The play's anti-Catholic bias made it a popular work for revival, and revised editions, under the title The Debauchees, appeared in 1746 and 1750. Cross III, p. 295. [FIELDING, Henry]. The Covent-Garden Tragedy. As it is Acted at the Theatre-Royal in Drury-Lane. [ii], 11, [3], 32 pp. London: J. Watts, 1732. First performed 1 June 1732 as a companion piece to The Old Debauchees. A satire on Ambrose Philips' popular tragedy The Distrest Mother (1712), with inspiration drawn from Hogarth's The Harlot's Progress. The central character, Mother Punchbowl, a character in the latter work, was modeled on the notorious madam Elizabeth Needham. The brothel setting enraged the public, and the play closed after one performance, with only sporadic revival thereafter. The tongue-in-cheek Prolegomena prints some of the criticism levied at the play, as the author admits he was unable to procure any positive reviews. An uncommon work, with no copies sold at auction listed on ABPC. Cross III, p. 295. [FIELDING, Henry]. The Mock Doctor: or The Dumb Lady Cur'd. A Comedy. Done from Moliere. As it is Acted at the Theatre-Royal in Drury-Lane. [viii], 32 pp. London: J. Watts, 1732. First edition of Fielding's ballad-opera adaptation of Molière's Le Médecin malgré lui, first performed 23 June 1732. A scarce work, 11 copies listed on ESTC and 1 copy sold at auction according to ABPC. Cross III, p. 296. Bound after the following works: MOTTLEY, John. The Imperial Captives: A Tragedy. London: Jauncy et al, 1720. Second edition; MOTTLEY, John. Antiochus: A Tragedy. London: Harbin et al. 1721; HILL, Aaron. King Henry the Fifth: or, the Conquest of France by the English.

One of the first of four books of the subject, A Treatise of Feme Coverts examines the doctrines of English Common Law relating to a "feme covert," that is a woman under the legal guardianship of the man who heads the household she belongs to. (Stated simply, this group included all females except divorced women and widows.) Written from a perspective sympathetic to women, it deals with precedents of conveyances not covered in The Law of Baron and Feme (1700), and as such can be seen as a companion volume. The treatise concludes with an account of Robert Hyde's argument in the case of Manby v. Scott (1663), in which he argued that a husband who is separated from his wife is not liable to a vendor for goods the wife purchased from the. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

"Lotti wrote in a variety of forms, producing masses, cantatas, madrigals, around thirty operas, and instrumental music. His sacred choral works are often unaccompanied (a cappella). His work is considered a bridge between the established Baroque and emerging Classical styles. Lotti is thought to have influenced Johann Sebastian Bach, George Frideric Handel, and Johann Dismas Zelenka, all of whom had copies of Lotti's mass, the Missa Sapientiae". (Wikipedia).

      Leiden, Samuel Luchtmans, 1732. - Folio. Four pts. in 1 vol. (30), 278 pp. (2), 64 pp. 26, (88, index) pp. T. p. printed in red and black, Arabic and Latin text in two columns. Original calf. First edition (reprinted in 1755). The eminent Arabian writer and statesman Bohaddin, better known in the East as Ibn-Sjeddad, "wrote several works on Jurisprudence and Moslem Divinity; but the only one that can be interesting to us is his 'Life and Actions of Saladin', which, with other pieces connected with the same subject, was published by Albert Schultens, at Leyden, in 1732, accompanied by a somewhat inelegant Latin translation, also by notes, and a Geographical Index. This work affords a favourable specimen of the historical compositions of the Arabs [.] The enthusiasm with which every thing about [Saladin] is narrated, and the anecdotes which the author, from his own personal knowledge, is able to communicate respecting that extraordinary character, give his work a great degree of interest" (Enc. Britannica, Suppl. II [1824], p. 352f). Schnurrer 148, no. 175. Gay 2238. Cf. Fück 107. Not in Smitskamp.

Nachdem er sich in seinem Geburtsorte niedergelassen, über er dasselbst mehr als 50 Jahre lang mit Auszeichnung die Chirurgie und Geburtshilfe im grossen Umfange aus.

La Motte war übrigens einer derjenigen Geburtshelfer, welche die Natur so weit als irgend möglich walten liessen. ... Er starb am 27. Juli 1737." Gurtl, Hirsch III, p.657"Als Leitfaden für de la Mottes Richtung erkennt man unschwer das Bestreben, den Missbrauch einzuschränken, den die 'Crocheteurs de profession' mit verletzenden Instrumenten trieben. So gab er der Wendung auf die Füsse mit Extraktion, dem einzigen Mittel, welches er besass, um auch bei Kopflage ein lebendes Kind durch Kunsthülfe zutage zu fördern, eine Ausdehnung, wie kein anderer Geburtshelfer vor oder nach ihm, Mauriceau und Deventer nicht ausgeschlossen. Hierin liegt das Charakteristische seiner Geburtshülfe. In ausgezeichneter Weise stellt er die Indikationen der Operation fest und behandelt besonders eingehend die Technik".

Quatrième Edition, revue & augmentée considerablement. 2 Teile in 1 Band. Mit 1 gest. Portrait als Frontispiz und 2 gest. TVign.

      Basel, E. & J. R. Thourneisen 1732 - Basel, E. & J. R. Thourneisen 1732. 1 Bl., CXXXIII, 613 S.; 2 Bll., 506 S., 17 Bll., 20 S. 4°. Ldr. d. Zt. auf 5 Bünden mit goldgepräg. Rücken und Rückenschild. - Titel in Rot und Schwarz. - Vierte franz. Ausgabe von Pufendorfs Hauptwerk "De jure naturae et gentium libri octo", das 1672 erstmalig in lateinischer Sprache erschien und auch 1711 in einer deutschen Übersetzung unter dem Titel "Acht Bücher von Natur und Völkerrecht" verlegt wurde. - Pufendorfs (1632-1694) Werk über das Naturrecht und das Verhältnis des Staatsbürgers zu diesem, gehört mit den "Dissertationes academico selectiores" (1677) und dem später veröffentlichten Hauptwerk "De jure naturae et gentium" (1678) zu den "bedeutendsten juristischen. Werke(n)" des Autors (siehe ADB 26, S. 704), der als Begründer der Vernunftrechtslehre gilt. - "P[ufendorf]s Naturrecht war wegen seines Inhalts und seines systematischen Aufbaus von ganz eminenter Bedeutung für Recht und Naturrecht im 18. Jh. Großen Einfluß hatte er auf Christian Thomasius (1655-1728) und Christian Wolff (1679-1754), und, teilweise vermittelt durch diese Autoren, auch auf die Gesetzgebung des späten 18. und frühen 19. Jh. Erst unter dem Einfluß Kants verblaßte die Bedeutung von P.s Naturrecht. Seine strafrechtliche Imputationslehre jedoch sowie System und Grundlehren des Privatrechts wirken bis heute nach" (siehe NDB 21, S. 3ff). - Das gestochene Porträt zeigt S. von Pufendorf. - Die Übersetzung in die französische Sprache unternahm der Rechtshistoriker Jean Barbeyrac (1674-1744), der durch die umfangreiche Einleitung und die Anmerkungen in vorliegender Ausgabe bekannt wurde. "Der Grund für B.s Berühmtheit liegt nicht nur in seinen Übertragungen der wichtigsten Schriften zum Naturrecht ins Französische, zu deren Verbreitung in den frankophonen Ländern er erhebl. beitrug, sondern ebenso sehr in seiner innovativen Art, Vernunft und Offenbarung in Einklang zu bringen. Mehr Moralist als Jurist, muss B. als Vorreiter des reformator. inspirierten Naturrechts im franz. Sprachraum bezeichnet werden" (Hist. Lex. der Schweiz). - Angebunden: Barbeyrac, Jean: Oratio inauguralis de dignitate et utilitate juris ac historiarum et utriusque disciplinae amica conjunctione. Quam dixit A.D. XIV. Kal. April.
