      Granada, Joseph de la Puerta, (1732). - Title-page with typographical border; woodcut initials and headpieces. (2 ll.), 36 pp. 4°, early plain wrappers. Crisp and clean. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this very rare pamphlet on the Spanish capture of the Algerian port of Oran in June of 1732, written by the expedition's auditor general. Cueva prefaces his account with a description of Oran and its fortifications, the natural history of the surrounding area, and the town's history. First captured by Spaniards in 1509, in an attempt to curtail Moorish privateering as well as to extend the sphere of Christian influence, Oran was relinquished in 1708 by a Spain weakened by the War of Spanish Succession. After reciting the history of the 1509 expedition, Cueva offers his account of the 1732 expedition commanded by D. Joseph Patiño and its successful recapture of Oran. Appended to the pamphlet are lists of officers and "otros aventureros" taking part in the expedition, and a list of those who perished.---- Palau 66168.

Continuation of subtitle: With an historical account of the most considerable events which happened during the space of above twenty - five years spent in those travels: such as a great revolution in the Ottoman empire, by which the sultan was deposed; the engaging of the Russian and Turkish armies on the Pruth; the late king of Sweden's flight from Pultoua to Bender; the kind reception he met with among the Turks; his transactions with the Porte, and return into his dominions; his campaigns in Norway, after the loss of Stralsund; his death, and the Princess Ulrica's accession to the throne; her generous resignation of it to her consort the present king: and, in fine, all the chief transactions of the senate and states of Sweden, till the peace with Russia. Aubry de la Mottraye was a French traveller (c. 1674 - 1743) who lived for many years in England because of his religion (he was a Huguenot). In 1696 he set off on travels which were to last 26 years, initially to the Scandinavian countries where he became a close confidant of Charles XII; he then went on to Tartary, and to Turkey where he settled for some years in Constantinople. When he returned to England he received a pension from King George I and published the first two volumes of his book in London in English in 1723, not translated into French until 1727. He then continued his travels taking in Prussia, Russia and Poland and his descriptions formed the third volume first published in 1732 in English and also in French.

The plates are all by English engravers depicting architecture, antiquities, costumes, scenes and customs. Some of them were engraved by William Hogarth but all of those are missing from this set. Cox, Literature of Travel, Volume I, page 78 quotes Lowndes: "Veracity and exactness, particularly so far as regards the copying of inscriptions, characterise these travels. They are valuable also for the information respecting the mines of northern Europe". On page 221 in the near East section: "Motraye's close association with the unfortunate Charles XII of Sweden... makes him an authority of the first rank on the Scandinavian's sojourn in Turkey. The life of the miserable king of Hungary, Tokoly, whom Motraye sought out in Nicomedia, could be rewritten with the aid of this tireless reciter's account. Besides he was a good witness of all that went on in Turkish society at Constantinople and elsewhere." (quoted from Iorga, Les Voyageurs Francais"). Cox does not list the 1732 first edition of Volume III, only an edition of 1733 published at the Hague. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST.

        Speculum religionis judaicæ, eller beskrifning/ om judarnas religion, och de nu förtiden hos dem brukelige ceremonier, ifrån födzlostunden/ och så widare tils de döde warda.

      1732 - Stockholm, J. L. Horrn, 1732. 8:o. (42),112,(1) pp. ("Speculum religionis judaicæ, or a description of the religion of the Jews, and the customary traditions among them nowadays, from the moment of birth an so on until they are dead") Contemporary half calf with raised bands and sprinkled edges. Title and pp. 29-30 with minor spotting, otherwise a clean copy. Contemporary ink signature on title. An enlarged edition was published in Gothenburg in 1732 and a third one in Stockholm 1735. Christian Petter Löwe, who was himself a baptized Jew and an "oriental language master at the Royal Academy in Upsala", had arrived in Sweden proper in 1724, via Russia and Åbo in Finland. In 1727 he was given a seat at Uppsala University. The Swedish-Jewish historian Hugo Valentin writes that Löwe eventually "through his boisterous and lecherous living and shaky finances made himself totally impossible and [that he] was removed from office in 1739". In a letter on Jews in Stockholm from 1736, it is said of Löwe: "is supposed to be language master in orientalic [sic] in Upsala, but is often here in town, and making all kinds of mess". In his foreword, Löwe states that he has written this book on the Jews and their customs because such a work has not been available in Swedish. To increase sales of the book he travelled the country and sold it himself, to the detriment of his work at the university. The Jewish beliefs, everyday scenes, superstitions and traditions that are represented in "Speculum religionis judaicæ" are mainly taken from Jewish circumstances in Poland, according to Valentin.

        Spotbilled Pelican

      Pencil, pen and ink and watercolor Paper size: 21" x 28 ½" Inscribed: In the Collection of Lady Impey in Calcutta/ Painted by [Ram Das] Native of Patna (lower left) and further inscribed in Urdu and Persian (lower left) and numbered (upper left) Provenance: Sir Elijah and Lady Impey During the years that Sir Elijah Impey (1732-1809) and his wife Mary spent in India, they commissioned a unique and highly important collection of original Indian artwork. In 1774, Sir Elijah was appointed the first Chief Justice in Bengal, as a result of the new Regulating Act which required the establishment of law courts in Calcutta. While he set about collecting Indian and Persian manuscripts and miniatures, his wife Mary, bound to the home by family duties and frequent childbirth, established a menagerie in the grounds of their Calcutta house. Recognizing a profound level of talent in several Indian artists, she employed at least three to paint the striking, exotic flora and fauna in her garden. Foremost among these artists were Shaikh Zayn-al-Din (fl. 1777-1782) and Ram Das (fl. 1777-1782). Both artists were trained in the Mughal tradition of the Persian court painters, and their work demonstrates outstanding talent for capturing detail and color. . Book.

        Jornada que Antonio de Albuquerque Coelho, Governador, e Capitao General da Cidade do Nome de Deos de Macao na China, Fez de Goa ate chegar a dista Cidade no anno de 1718

      Rare account of the Malay and a sea-voyage through India and China. 1732. Lisbon. Officinal da musica. In 8vo (147 mm x 92 mm). 8 ff. + 427 + 1 [blank]. Contemporary sheep, subbed and scratched. Some scattered worm holes, mostly marginal and unobstrusive, however sometimes touching a little text.Second edition, and first European edition; the first is almost impossible to find (Macao, 1718). The work was one of the very few published in China not dealing with linguistics or religion. Albuquerque (1682 ?" 1745) was an illegitimate son of Antonio de Albuquerque, and a Portuguese colonial officer to the Far East; he sailed from Goa to Macao in 1717 to assume his recent appointment as Governor of the later. The work describes the hardships and events occurred during the journey. In 1718 Albuquerque´s ship anchored at Johor Lama, leading up to the conquest attack by Raja Kechil and the conquest of the most powerful Malay kingdom, Tavares. Who accompanied Albuquerque, takes notes of his observations and experiences during the perilous voyage across the Malay, and along the coast of India and China. "In view of the deplorable state of affairs, a carefully selected Captain-General was appointed for Macao... the ship he was to sail in left him behind at Goa evidently on purpose, as the captain owed him a grudge... The voyage, unfortunately, was beset by hardships far greater than those undergone during the overland journey. After sailing for two months without a pilot, the ship put into Johore in distress. There Albuquerque helped the Sultan to quell a revolt... resuming the voyage, he met further troubles. In the absence of a pilot, it was Albuquerque himself who steered the ship as best he could" (C. R. Boxer, A Fidalgo in the Far East, quoting Montalto de Jesus Historic Macao).A rare work, only two copies have appear at auction in the last 50 years.Howgego, A 47. Cordier, Sinica, 3219.

        Jornada, que Antonio de Albuquerque Coelho, governador, e capitao general da cidade do Nome de Deos de Macao na China, fez de Goa ate chegar a dita cidade no anno de 1718. Dividida em duas partes.

      Lisbon, Officina da Musica (Jayme de la Te y Sagau), 1732.. 8vo. (16), 427, (1) pp. With each page in a frame of thick-thin rules, mitred at the corners, 4 woodcut headpieces (plus 1 repeat) including 1 with the Portuguese coat of arms, 1 woodcut tailpiece, woodcut decorated initials. Contemp. tanned sheepskin, gold-tooled spine with red morocco label, rebacked.. Second edition (after the 1718 Macao edition printed entirely from woodblocks) of a journal of the voyage of Antonio de Albuquerque Coelho (ca. 1682-1745) from Goa in India to Macao on the coast of southern China. The journal was written by Joao Tavares de Velez Guerreiro, a captain in the Portuguese navy serving in India, who accompanied the governor on the voyage as his chief of staff. Coelho had been appointed governor of the city of Macao in 1717, and they arrived there in May 1718. They travelled via Madras, through the Malay peninsula and along the coasts of Indochina and China. Part 1 gives an account of the voyage itself and part 2 an account of their stay in Johor at the southern tip of the Malay peninsula, where they played a role in a Sumatran adventurer's coup d'etat. The two parts of the text are not bibliographically separate, part 2 beginning on p. 187, halfway through quire M. The publisher Jaime (or Jayme) de la Te y Sagau, better known for his musical publications and his own musical compositions, dedicated the book to the Duke of Cadaval, ending the dedication with a sonnet. It mentions the first Duke, Nuno Alvares Pereira de Melo, but he appears to have died in 1725 or 1727, so it may be directed to the third Duke Jaime (1684-1749). - Printed on thick paper. With a 1732 inscription on the title-page. The first few leaves are slightly tattered at the fore-edge, not approaching the text, and have been professionally restored, and there are some stains on the fore-edge. Boards show a few minor cuts and scrapes, but binding remains in good condition. A valuable eye-witness account of India, Southeast Asia and China in 1718. - Howgego A47. Cordier, Sinica 3219. Löwendahl 377. PorBase (4 copies).
