        [Sirat al-Sultan al-alik al-Nasr Salih al-Din]. Vita et res gestae Sultani, Almalichi Alnasiri, Saladini [...]. Grandiore cothurno conscripta ab Amadoddino Ispahanensi ex mss. Arabicis [...] Editit et latine vertit Albertus Schultens.

      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. Contemp. blindstamped vellum on seven raised bands with faded ms. title to spine.. 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). - An appealing copy in Dutch blindstamped vellum from the Berne Abbey, home of the Premonstratensians of Heeswijk, North Brabant, and the oldest extant religious community in the Netherlands (their stamp on t. p.). Modern protective flyleaves (but original pastedowns). Slight wrinkling to final pages; otherwise clean and unbrowned. - Schnurrer 148, no. 175. Gay 2238. OCLC 21516733. Cf. Fück 107.

        Kitab-i Cihan-nüma [Jihan-numa, The mirror of the world].

      Probably Istanbul, first third of 18th century.. Folio (286 x 180 mm). 581 ff. and 4 blanks (complete, numbered 1-297, 297-497 [313 omitted, 368 and 374-376 counted twice], 2 blanks, 298-299, double-page map on single leaf, 300-378 ff., 2 final blanks). With a total of 45 full-page hand-coloured manuscript maps and 7 hand-coloured illustrations and tables. 15-31 (but mostly 29) lines, some of the manuscript text framed within gilt borders. Manuscript on paper in Ottoman Turkish in slightly irregular but well legible Nast'aliq script in black and red ink. Contemporary Turkish brown giltstamped calf. Stored in custom-made blue half calf clamshell box.. The hitherto inaccessible, most comprehensive manuscript of the first modern geography and atlas of the Islamic world. While only ten manuscripts comprising both parts of the Cihan-nüma are known to exist (the famous first printing carried out by Müteferrika in 1732 contains the second part only, expanded by an appendix commissioned for the printed edition), the present manuscript is the only one known to contain both parts in full as well as Müteferrika's addenda in contemporary manuscript, making it unique in uniting all known traditions of the "Mirror of the World" in a single volume (cf. below). Its author, the historian, bibliographer and geographer Katib Celebi (1609-57), was one of the principal intellectual figures of the 17th century Ottoman empire. This work of world geography was his masterpiece, drawing from European atlases and other sources and making them available to the Islamic world for the first time. Celebi's first manuscript version was begun in 1648 and dealt with Muslim Spain, North Africa and Ottoman Europe. This first version quickly enjoyed a wide circulation in manuscripts, and some 18 copies are known. A 1654 revision, compiled after the author had acquired a copy of the Mercator-Hondius Atlas minor, included Asia; this substantially different version (not overlapping with the former) was copied rarely at first: most dated copies were not prepared before the end of the 17th or the 18th century. It is the latter ms. tradition on which Ibrahim Müteferrika drew when he printed the work in 1732, but he also included additions (mostly by the geographer Abu Bakr) that provided descriptions of the Asian parts of the Ottoman Empire, covering Iraq, the Arabian Peninsula, and Anatolia. - While the present ms. was originally conceived as a combined manuscript of the two manuscript traditions, it also contains - inserted between the original folios 297 and 298 - an addendum (without illustrations, foliated 297-497) written in a different hand but more or less at the same time, which mainly contains the text of the supplement that also appears in Müteferrika's printed edition. It is thus extremely likely that both the the continuous text (pp. 1-297, 298-378) and this inserted portion (pp. 297-497) were both prepared in Müteferrika's scribal workshop or by a school closely associated with it. As evidenced by the foliation, apparently supplied by a single, contemporary hand throughout, the inserted addendum was always intended for this very manuscript: probably, a second scribe worked from an independent source at a time when the remainder of the ms. was already well advanced; the jumbled page numbering points to some error in transmission when the various portions of text were conflated. Whereas the original configuration of the ms. corresponds to a number of others, the insertion of Müteferrika's continuation makes it unique: no other known copy of Cihan-nüma contains this tripartite division. The maps are largely independent of the engravings found in the printed edition and would seem to follow various separate manuscript models. In especial, the present ms. contains two maps of the Arabian Gulf not present in Müteferrika's publication: one shows Persian Iraq in the north, the entire Gulf region from Basrah to the Gulf of Oman, and the northern coastline of the Arabian Peninsula, with Bahrain, Qatar, and Ruus al-Jibal (with "Khawr Sakkan" indicated in the rough location of Ras al-Khayma, and islands marked "Kharg", "Qis", and "Cezire-i Bahreyn"). The other map, declared as one of Kirman, Hormuz and Lar, includes large parts of the Arabian Gulf with Ras al-Khayma and marking the location of Maskat, Oman (both in correct Arabic), Ur Fakkan, Khor Fakkan, Kalba, Naban, and Julfar. - Provenance: Two early ownership inscriptions on blank recto of title page: first, that of al Sayyid 'Abd al-Rahman Nu'man Pasha-zade (dated 1188, i.e. AD 1774/5), who served as the Master of Ceremonies (Kapicibasi, one of the highest offices at the Ottoman court) at Topkapi Palace. The second, dated [12]70 (AD 1853/4), belongs to the teacher Atifzade Vahid Mehmed (d. 1876), who is recorded in Mehmed Süreyya's great Ottoman prosopography "Sicill-i 'Osmani" (IV, 606) and was the brother of the Shaykh al-Islam Ömer Hüsameddin Efendi. Later in the collection of the Turkish economic historian and geographer Hamit Sadi Selen (1892-1968), who published two scholarly articles on the ms. Last in the library of the Swiss banker and collector Herry W. Schaefer. When the Schaefer collection was dispersed, this ms. was misidentified as a mere copy of the second manuscript tradition with an unspecified additional geographical work about the Ottoman Empire inserted. It is only due to the research of Dr. Gottfried Hagen, University of Michigan (whose extensive, scholarly description of this item is available upon request) that the unique quality of this comprehensive, three-part manuscript was recognized. - A few short tears, some old waterstaining, the contemporary binding expertly rebacked. In exceptionally fine condition. - G. Hagen, Ein osmanischer Geograph bei der Arbeit (Berlin 2003), p. 421 H; p. 425 G (cf. Appendix 3, p. 415-427 for a census of all known copies). G. Hagen, A manuscript of Katib Celebi's Kitab-y Cihan-nüma acquired by Inlibris, Vienna. A preliminary description and analysis of its text and maps (forthcoming).

        Arithmetica Universalis; sive de compositione et resolutione arithmetica liber.

      Leyden; Apud Joh. Et Herm. Verbeek, 1732. 4:o. 26x21 cm. (7, 1 blank), 344 pp. + 13 folding plates. Contemporary sprinkled calf with six raised bands, gilt decorations in compartments and red leather label. A small hole at base of spine and a short tear in lower front folding. Rear folding has a wormhole. A scrape mark on the spine label. Front board has a series of light stains and ''14'' in handwriting. There is a small loss at rear top corner, the other corners are slightly bumped. Front free endpaper has a cornerloss, a short tear in outer margin and three signatures of previous owners; the first dated 1819, the second by John Tandberg is dated 1948, and the third 1982, by Hans Moëll. Tandberg (1896-1968) was a Norwegian-Swedish physicist, chemist and author. There is a small hole in lower margin on the front endpaper and the first five leaves. Contents have a few scattered specks, and recurring light dampstains in margins. The plates are mainly dampstained in margins, but some of them also in the picture areas. There is a minimal loss at top corner of pp. 277 and onwards. The Arithmetica Universalis was first printed i London in 1707, edited by William Whiston, who ''extracted from Newton a somewhat reluctant permission to print it. Among several new theorems on various points in algebra and the theory of equations, Newton here enunciates the following important results. He explains that the equation whose roots are a solution of a given problem will have as many roots as their are different probable cases... He extends Descartes' rules of signs to give limits to the number of imaginary roots... The most interesting theorem contained in the work is his attempt to find a rule (analogous to that of Descartes for real roots) by which the number of imaginary roots of a equation can be determined." (Ball, A Short History of Mathematics, pp. 330-331). The Leyden e.dition is the third Latin edition. Babson 204, Gray 279

        A Collection of Voyages and Travels,

      London: Printed for John Walthoe, Thomas Wotton, and 5 others,, 1732. Some Now first Printed from original Manuscripts, Others Now first Published in English. In Six Volumes. With a General preface, giving an Account of the progress of Navigation, from its first Beginning. Illustrated with a great Number of useful Maps and Cuts, Curiously Engraven. 6 volumes, folio (351 × 216 mm). Contemporary speckled calf, rebacked, brown morocco labels, spines attractively gilt in compartments, Northern Light Board stamps to heads of spines and ruling to boards gilt, red sprinkled edges. Arms of subscribers in volume I, 2 portrait frontispieces of John Nieuhoff and Philip Baldaeus, and engraved titles to volumes II and III, 164 plates and maps, vignettes and woodcuts throughout. Somewhat flaked and crackled on the boards, but spines presenting very well, light browning, else very good. Second, enlarged edition. "Compiled by Awnsham and John Churchill, this is a very valuable collection, both for its range of coverage and for the fact that it gives the original accounts" (Hill). It includes the voyages of Nieuhoff, Baldaeus, and Thomas Phillips. Originally published in 1704 in four volumes, this edition includes an additional two volumes. By the third edition (1744-7), the work had grown to eight volumes. Awnsham Churchill was John Locke's publisher, and in the third edition the preliminary essay on the history of navigation is described as being 'supposed to be written by the celebrated Mr. Locke', and it was included in the 1812 edition of his works. However, "The authorship is doubtful, but Locke had much to do with getting together the materials of the collection, which is likely to have been produced at his instigation. Locke was upon friendly terms with Awnsham Churchill for many years, and left him a small legacy" (DNB).

In especial, the present ms. contains two maps of the Arabian Gulf not present in Müteferrika's publication: one shows Persian Iraq in the north, the entire Gulf region from Basrah to the Gulf of Oman, and the northern coastline of the Arabian Peninsula, with Bahrain, Qatar, and Ruus al-Jib [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        (History, United Kingdom, 105 Maps / Plates): Britannia Romana: Or the Roman Antiquities of Britain: In Three Books

      London: John Osborn and Thomas Longman , 1732. Large, heavy 14.5 inch folio, with full contemporary leather boards, 6 banded gilt decorated spine (chipped but legible), hinges starting (front cover would not take much to come off; binding relatively tight). Ex-library (Hampstead Public Libraries, small stamps on verso most maps, and upper right margin of most plates- not on images). Leather covers scuffed, rubbed, chipped at edges. Interior, other than the library marks, is very good or better, with the 105 plates and maps (often itineraries, with sites of forts and other landmarks present) in generally excellent condition. Nice margins, very little browning, virtually no foxing.Title and half title, endpapers present. There are 520 pp text, plus: 1. A Chronological Table of Occurrences Relating to the Roman affairs in Britain 2. Index. Also dedication to Sir Richard Ellys Bart., and Preface (xxxii). The front pastedown shows the reference dept. label of the libray, and the title page has an owners signature penned neatly and dated 1770 (Ever Buckworth?). John Horsley was a presbyterian minister and archaelogist, well-published. This offering was issued just posthumously, and reflects a major early attempt to describe the geography of Britain in the Roman period. The first map is an overview of Britain, double page, titled "Britannia Romana collected from Ptolemy, Antonine&#39;s Itinerary, the Notitia, and Inscriptions. It has a table of ancient place names, and a table of the "British People mentioned by Ptolemy". In additiion to the maps, there are plates of regional alphabets and articfacts. A reprint edition of this work was published in 1974 by Frank Graham, and the British Library site lists this work as one of the "seminal texts from the past". All three books bound as one: history of all Roman transactions in Britain, collection of Roman inscriptions and sculptures, Roman geography of Britain. In spite of the flaws, a nice copy of an impressive and historically significant work. . First Edition.

        May 1732

      [from "Twelve Months of Fruit"]. London: Robert Furber, 1732. Copper engraving by Henry Fletcher after Casteels, contemporary hand-colouring. Good condition, neatly repaired tears to margins. 18 5/8 x 15 inches. A marvellous cornucopia of real fruit. Robert Furber was a nurseryman with gardens near Hyde Park gate in Kensington, and for many years a churchwarden at St. Mary Abbot&#39;s, Kensington. Following on from the success of his Twelve months of Flowers catalogue (first published in 1730), Furber employed the same methods two years later, when publicising the wide range of fruit that he could provide to the great gardens of England: each plate depicts different arrangements of fruit &#39;arranged on or around bowls, dishes, or baskets ... from the apples and pears of January and February to the cherries, currants, mulberries, plums, peaches, strawberries, and other soft fruit of June ... [A total of 364 varieties] are shown, each one numbered in reference to the names printed below each picture. By the name of each variety is a letter S, D, E, or W, for standard, dwarf, espalier, or wall, and indicating its habit of growth and most productive method of treatment&#39; (Oak Spring Pomona p.65). This plate (like all the others in the series) is based on the incomparable paintings of Pieter Casteels (1684-1749) who came from Antwerp and settled in London in 1708. Between 1708 and 1735 (when he retired from painting) Casteels enjoyed great success with his paintings of nature: birds, flowers and, as here, fruit. Cf. Dunthorne 117; cf. Henrey III, 734; cf.

        A GENERAL COLLECTION OF TREATYS, DECLARATIONS OF WAR, MANIFESTOS, AND OTHER PUBLICK PAPERS, RELATING TO PEACE AND WAR. IN FOUR VOLUMES

      London. 1732.. Four volumes. Contemporary calf, ruled in gilt, gilt morocco labels. Moderate wear to spine ends, joints, and corners. Occasional light tanning. Very good. Styled the second edition on the titlepage, but much expanded to comprise a completely different set, believed to have been edited by Samuel Whatley. The first edition, issued in 1710, was followed by an additional volume in 1713. This work, the most important collection of British treaties published through the early 18th century, covers treaties from 1495 (a treaty with Austria) to treaties concluded in 1731. Many of these treaties, published here for the first time, affected the New World and North America in fundamental ways. At least thirty of the treaties relating to America listed in Davenport&#39;s EUROPEAN TREATIES BEARING ON THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES appear here, beginning with the Hague treaty of 1596. The 1677 treaty of Charles II with the Indian Kings and Queens of Virginia is here in its second appearance in print, and the 1730 treaty between Great Britain and the Cherokees appears here for the first time. The introduction provides a history of the French King Louis XIV&#39;s inclination to break treaties. A fundamentally important collection of British treaties. SABIN 26873.

        The Pennsylvania Chronicle, and Universal Advertiser.

      Broadsheet newspaper, 2 pages on one sheet, 18" x 12 1/2". Cropped with partial loss of the first page's bottom line, small hole near title, but not affecting text, normal aging and browning; otherwise very good. This issue features the first printing of John Dickinson's "Letters from a Farmer in Pennsylvania to the Inhabitants of the British Colonies. " Dickinson (1732-1808) was born in Maryland, and became a prominent statesman and political figure. He was a strong critic of the Stamp Act of 1764, and advised the colonies to ignore it. While Britain would repeal the Stamp Act, Dickinson felt other measures by Parliament threatened the rights of the American colonies. This article, which was published in most of major newspapers in the colonies, and distributed in pamphlet form in Paris and London, presents Dickinson's objections to various acts of Parliament. Specifically, the Quartering Act of 1765, the Restraining Act of 1766, and the Townshend Duties of 1767. Dickenson felt all three acts were threats to colonial liberty, and would also result in a loss of colonial control over taxation. However, despite his problems with some aspects of British rule, and his call for firm resistance, he still argued peaceful opposition. ANB.

(Lowndes) The greatest history of the period of the Civil Wars, the Interregnum and the Restoration, and the first great work of modern history in the English language. "[M]ore than for his political role or his intellectual legacy, Clarendon remained in the mind because of his literary achievement&#151;the fashioning of the most sophisticated and finely balanced history yet written in English (or written for a long time afterwards)&#151;and for an unmistakable rhetorical voice. . . . [I]n the History he created a distinctive work of art based on a highly wrought style, a forensic dissection of character and issue, and a sense of the depth of individuals&#39; moral responsibility for their actions . . . (ODNB) But Grose begs to differ: "Throughout, there is inaccuracy, omission, and confusion. He [Clarendon] seldom departs long or far from the apologetic, didactic, or vindicatory, either in his own or in Stuart interests. . . . In spite of these defects, the work remains one of the greatest source documents of the century and a pioneering example of well written, forceful party history. There is constant bias, but it is informed and not ignorant bias; and there is little or no deliberate disregard of truth." Oh, you decide! N. B.

        Alciphron: or, The Minute Philosopher. In Seven Dialogues. Containing an Apology for the Christian Religion, against those who are called Free-thinkers

      London: Printed for J. Tonson 1732 First edition. Pages 211-358 of Volume II contain the third edition of Berkeley's Essay Towards a New Theory of Vision, originally published in 1709. Contemporary paneled calf, rebacked, with original backstrips laid down, back board in a tasteful later calf. . Two volumes, octavo. . Engraved title-page vignettes Corners worn, one gathering of Vol. I with light foxing, old, neat pencil notes in two gatherings of Vol. II. Contemporary owner's signature and date 1732 on front pastedown, early to mid-twentieth century rubberstamp of another owner on the same pastedown. A good, clean copy. Berkeley (1685-1753) wrote the Alciphron during the years 1729 to 1731 while relaxing in Newport, Rhode Island, where he was awaiting funds (which never came) for his projected college in the Bermudas. The book attracted more attention than any of his previous works. The dialogues it contains constitute a defense of Christianity from the point of view of an Anglican divine. "Alciphron is regarded as an outstanding example of English literature among works on philosophy. It is described on the title-page as 'an Apology for the Christian Religion, against those who are called Free-Thinkers,' and the Dialogues defend revealed religion against the current beliefs of the Deists. Luce places Alciphron with Joseph Butler's Analogy, 1736, as the only comparable book on Christian apologetics in the eighteenth century" (Keynes, p. 37).

      Skara: A.Mueller, 1732. Small 8vo (156 x 93 mm). 162, [13] pp. Title printed in red and black with woodcut device, dedicatees&#39; names in red, woodcut headpiece. (Title and second leaf restored at fore-margins with loss to letters on title verso.) 20th-century calf gilt antique, gilt edges, by G. Hedberg of Stockholm. Provenance: Bookplates of A. Bernström and Signe & Olof Lamm. First and only edition of an important description of the Swedish settlements in Pennsylvania and Delaware, after their transfer to Dutch dominion. Founded in 1638 by an expedition sent by the New Sweden Company under the leadership of Peter Minuit, the Swedish colony was peacefully surrendered to the Dutch under Peter Stuyvesant in 1655, but remained a "Swedish nation" under Dutch tutelage, Stuyvesant having permitted the colonists to be governed by a court of their own choosing, to practice their religion, organize their own militia, retain their land holdings and pursue their trade with the local Native American tribes, a situation that was to cease only in 1681, when William Penn received his charter. Swedberg&#39;s work "may justly be called the most complete ecclesiastical history of Nova Suecia down to that time. The author was Bishop of the Swedish Congregations in America [and father of Emanuel Swedenborg], and received in this function all the reports, etc., of the various ministers; the greater part of the book is filled by these authentic documents and letters, which abound with the most valuable details" (F. Muller, Catalogue of books and pamphlets...relating to North and South America, 1140. The texts reproduced are in Swedish (printed in gothic types) and Latin (in roman types). .
