        Les Avantures de Monsieur Robert Chevalier, dit de Beauchene.

      Amsterdam: Aux Depens de la ... , 1733. Two volumes in one, duodecimo, five plates, titles printed in red and black with engraved vignettes; occasional ms. marginalia in a neat early hand, a good copy in later half red morocco. An attractive copy of the second French edition of this important imaginary voyage and Canadian adventure based on the exploits of Robert Chevalier Beauchêne.Le Sage (1668-1747) was a successful playwright and novelist, now chiefly remembered as the author of the picaresque novel Gil Blas. The novel claims to be derived from notes sent to Le Sage by Beauchêne's widow, and is a heady confection of piratical life set in the wilds of eighteenth-century Canada. Beauchêne is an Indian scout turned coast-prowling pirate, and the narrative recalls his bloodthirsty exploits in duels and ship-boardings, as well as his recollections of being sold into slavery in New England. It is difficult to sort the fact from the fiction in this rollicking tale - the Canadian Encyclopedia comments that Le Sage's work has 'many exaggerations and inaccuracies' - but it is a vivid account, concluding with Beauchêne's return to France with his plundered loot, where he dies in a tavern brawl in Tours. Slight waterstaining affecting only the margins, head of spine restored.

        Histoire des découvertes et conquestes des Portugais dans le Nouveau monde

      Paris: Chez Saugrain pere, quai des Augustins, au coin de la rue Chez Saugrain pere, quai des Augustins, au coin de la rue Pavee, a la, 1733. 2 volumes. [8]+xxiv+616+[47]+[1] pages with 4 maps ad view (one folding) and 3 plates (one folding); [2]+693+[89]+[2] pages with 1 map and 6 plates. Quarto (10 1/4" x 10 1/4") bound in half leather with raised spine bands and gilt lettering to spine over marbled boards. (Borba de Moraes, page I:453; European Americana 733/146; Sabin 38591) First edition.Joseph-François Lafitau was a French Jesuit missionary, ethnologist, and naturalist. He is best known for his use of the comparative method in the field of scientific anthropology, the discovery of ginseng, and his writings on the Iroquois. Lafitau was the first of the Jesuit missionaries in Canada to have a scientific point of view. Lafitau is considered the first of the modern ethnographers and a precursor of scientific ethnology for his work on the Iroquois. He developed a model of studying peoples that involved describing existing cultures on their own terms—not in comparison to European society. He distinguished generic and specific traits, transforming the "generic savage" into specific tribal groups. He explained that "only from specific identities can genetic relations be inferred."[5] Furthermore, he was the first to declare, "contemporary primitive cultures throw light upon the culture of ancient people and vice versa. Lafitau is remembered for applying the comparative method with a greater level of competency than any of his contemporaries. Through original field observations, he was able to critique the works of earlier writers on Primitive peoples. By using the Comparative Method, Lafitau rejected all theories of social and cultural change and instead used his study to demonstrate the similarities in customs, practices, and usages of the Native North Americans with diverse peoples from different continents and centuries. He consistently relied on the doctrine of degeneration: all men originally shared one religion with one God but over time as people migrated to separate margins of the earth where they then lost touch with the values and traditions of this one true religion and culture. Therefore, Lafitau believed in the "psychic unity of mankind" and the doctrine of primitive monotheism. His major work, written in French, was first published in 1724 in Paris. It is entitled Customs of the American Indians Compared with the Customs of Primitive Times (Moeurs des Sauvages Amériquains, Comparées aux Moeurs des Premiers Temps) and is 1,100 pages in total. In 1974, William Fenton and Elizabeth Moore made the first translation into English available. Lafitau published two other works. One, Histoire de Jean de Brienne, Roy de Jérusalem et Empereur de Constantinople (Paris, 1727), was released before he returned to Canada; it is little known and seldom seen. A two-volume Histoire des découvertes et conquestes des Portugais dons le Nouveau Monde . . . (1733) appeared after he came home to France. Frequently found in libraries, it is not just a compilation of original sources but an attempt to make available to French readers a story of exploration and adventure otherwise denied to them; in the chronicles he sees a long development of customs hitherto unnoticed, such as he had reported in the MÅ“urs; from them, understood only, he says, in the original languages of the people who practice them, he builds his "system" or philosophy of history, and once more he is concerned too with the relation between custom and natural history, or ecology.Condition:Beautifully rebound in half leather. Faint dampening to second volume; early owner's signatures on title pages, inked stamps of St Charles Borromeo Seminary on front paste-downs and first title page, lacks frontispiece else a very good to fine set.

Provenance: Robert Needham Cust and Robert Henry Hobart Cust (armorial bookplates to front pastedown). A fine copy. ----I. Rothschild 1615; Foxon P822; Griffith 294; Hayward 148. - The four epistles of the Essay on Man were published successively on 20 February, 29 March, 8 May 1733, and 24 January 1734. They were published anonymously and undated as the author was wary of the negative and hostile perception of him and his previous works that existed in some quarters, and wanted the work to be considered without prejudice on its own merits. The first editions of the first three Epistles appear in variant states, the priority of which is not always clear, but none of which are of textual significance - apart from Griffith's issue I of Epistle I, which Pope revised. The friend to whom the epistles were addressed was Henry St. John, Lord Bolingbroke. But this is not to say that the poem was simply a vehicle for Bolingbroke's deistical philosophy. Maynard Mack has aptly termed the Essay on Man a public, social and classical poem (Works, III, London, 1950, introduction, p. 74), one that accepts the vastness and impersonality of Newton's universe, but one which, in its shaping of the familiar, also interweaves a tissue of images from older and more human conceptions. 18th-century sociability and a Roman Catholic sense of corporateness are a key part of Pope's philosophical outlook, while his favoured metaphor of concord from discord can be traced back to Heraclitus. In Mack's view, the poem is able to transcend its origins and establish contact with the collective religious and moral past. Between Paradise Lost and The Prelude, there is no other English poem of which this can be said. (Mack, p.72). Very Good.

        QUINTI HORATII FLACCI. OPERA

      London: Johannes Pine, 1733. First Pine edition, first state with "post est" in medallion on p. 108 of Vol. II. Tiny repair to dedication leaf. Excellant condition superb bindings. Housed in modern cloth half slipcase. First Pine edition, first state with "post est" in medallion on p. 108 of Vol. II. Two volumes. 8vo. [xxxii], 264p [i]; [xxiv], 191p., [xiii] . Engraved throughout with plates, portraits, vignettes, and initials by John Pine. Bound by Tout in full burgundy crushed morocco, a.e.g., the spine densely gilt in floral designs, the covers similarly decorated with dense floral cornerpieces, fancy dentelles. "Pine's complete command of his craft makes this the most elegant of English eighteenth-century books in which text and illustrations alike are entirely engraved." (Ray. English. p. 3.) "Pine, a pupil of Picart, was our best native engraver during the first half of the [eighteenth] century... His Horace is engraved throughout, text and illustrations, and possesses the delightful unity that such books always have. Its lettering with its strong contrasts between thick and thin strokes may well have influenced Baskerville and Bodoni in their type design. Its vignettes make it one of the few English books that can be compared with French work of the time for delicacy and finish." (Bland. A History of Book Illustration, p. 216.) De Ricci-COhen p. 497.

Hayhurst to front free end-paper. A beautiful, excellent, crisp, and large copy with good margins, printed on heavy, fine paper. (16, -including preface, contents, advertisements), 253, (1), (18, -Index) pp. The important actual first edition of this highly celebrated key work of the Enlightenment, in which the anecdote of how Newton discovered gravity (the story about Newton and the falling apple) appeared for the first time, together with the description of the difference between the physical world view of the English and the French (the "plenum" and the "vacuum") . This seminal work, in which Voltaire famously depicts British philosophy, science, society and culture, in comparison to French, can be viewed as the Enlightenment equivalent to Tocqueville's "Democracy in America". This series of essays, which is based on Voltaire's experiences when living in England, was actually written by Voltaire mostly in English, which he mastered to perfection. It has often been presumed that the first edition of the work was that published in French in 1734, but actually, the present English edition constitutes the actual first appearance of the work as well as the version that is closest to Voltaire's intention, as the French language version is the re-written one, and the English version the original. Curiously, almost all modern English versions are translations into English of the French edition, instead of the original English version, making this edition of the utmost importance.After the original English edition of 1733, two French editions soon followed (the first in 1734). Unlike the British, the French resented the book, and already in 1734, the French Parliament issued an order for the author's arrest and condemned the work, causing the impact of it in France to be delayed. The book was burned for being "dangerous to religion and civil order". At the same time, the work became a bestseller in Britain, and as much as 14 editions of the work were published in the eighteenth century. "Inspired by Voltaire's two-year stay in England (1726-8), this is one of the key works of the Enlightenment. Exactly contemporary with Gulliver's Travels and The Beggar's Opera, Voltaire's controversial pronouncements on politics, philosophy, religion, and literature have placed the Letters among the great Augustan satires. Voltaire wrote most of the book in English, in which he was fluent and witty, and it fast became a bestseller in Britain. He re-wrote it in French as the Lettres philosophiques, and current editions in English translate his French." (Nicholas Cronk, Introduction to the Oxford's Classics edition from 1999).The great French philosopher Voltaire was greatly impressed by the philosophical and scientific achievements of the English, especially those of Newton, Locke, and Bacon. As a disseminator of scientific knowledge, Voltaire came to play a great rôle in the popularization of Newtonian science and its discoveries, the present work being a prime example. Although the work was condemned by the French authorities, it still came to play a great rôle in the spreading of Newtonian ideas in France. The present work generally came to play a dominant rôle in Enlightenment accounts of the history of science and philosophy. The work focuses on British science and thought and uses the accounts of these to emphasize what is lacking in French society and French thought. The work is generally very critical towards the French "ancient régime", and when Voltaire here discusses the emergence of empiricism, it is viewed as an English tradition that stands in opposition to the French rationalist tradition (with Descartes as the prime example). This view is taken over by the following Enlightenment historians of science and philosophy, e.g. d'Alembert (see for instance his "Preliminary Discourse" of 1751). Some of the most influential passages of the work are probably those on Bacon (who Voltaire sees as the founder of modern experimental science), Newton, and Descartes. Letters XIV, on Descartes and Newton, XV, on attraction, and XVI, on Newton's Optics (from 1704), are among the most influential essays of the work. In XVI Voltaire reflects upon Newton's "Optics" and the way that he rejected Descartes' theory and set out his own account of the properties of light. In XV he presents the first account of Newton and the falling apple: "As he was walking one Day in his Garden, and saw some Fruits fall from a Tree, he fell into profound Meditation on that Gravity, the Cause of which had so long been sought, but in vain, by all the Philosophers, whilst the Vulgar think there is nothing mysterious in it. He said to himself, that from what height soever, in our Hemisphere, those Bodies might descend, their Fall wou'd certainly be in the Progression discover'd by Galileo; and the Spaces they run thro' would be as the Square of the Times. Why may not this Power which causes heavy Bodies to descend, and is the fame without any sensible Diminution at the remotest Distance from the Center of the Earth, or on the Summits of the highest Mountains; Why, said Sir Isaac, may not this Power extend as high as the Moon?..." (pp. 127-28).But perhaps the most famous passage in the volume is the opening of Letter XIV: "A Frenchman who arrives in London, will find Philosophy, like every Thing else, very much chang'd there. He had left the World a "plenum", and he now finds it a "vacuum". At Paris the Universe is seen, compos'd of Vortices of subtile Matter; but nothing like it is seen in London. In France, 'tis the Pressure of the Moon that causes the Tides; but in England 'tis the Sea that gravitates towards the Moon; so that when you think that the Moon should make it Flood with us, those Gentlemen fancy it should be Ebb, which, very unluckily, cannot be prov'd..." (pp. 109-10).

Pages de titre en rouge et noir. In fine Catalogue des livres qui se trouvent chez Jean Neaulme (32p.). Reliures en plein veau brun marbré d'époque. Dos à nerfs ornés. Pièces de titre en maroquin rouge, pièces de tomaison en maroquin havane. Queue du tome II en partie arrachée. Mors inférieur du tome I ouvert en tête. 2 manques sur le plat supérieur du tome II. mors supérieur du tome I fendu en tête. Manque une page de garde avant le titre. Bon exemplaire. Le titre de Contes orientaux serait à vrai dire plus exact pour qualifier ce recueil déroutant, où les histoires sont enchâssées les unes dans les autres, nous faisant passer d'un pays à un autre. Ainsi trouve t-on de nombreux contes sur la Perse, certains sur l'Inde, d'autres sur le royaume de Canaan (Cochinchine, Laos...). Tout commence par le désir du roi de Canaan d'envoyer un harem en offrande au roi de Chine, on ne sait comment, le lecteur se retrouve en Perse avec l'ambassadeur du roi de Canaan et deux derviches, dont l'un d'avère être une fille, et l'autre le roi de Georgie. L'essentiel de la narration est assumée par le mandarin Fum-Hoam, mais les contes et histoires concernent davantage la Perse et les pays avoisinants. Le merveilleux n'est pas absent de ces contes à l'invention débridée, on peut y voir Fum-Hoam métamorphosée en puce... Gueullette s'était fait une spécialité dans l'écriture de contes orientaux et il en donna plusieurs recueils assez importants qui tous eurent un succès durable, non seulement en France, mais également en Angleterre, en Allemagne, et même en Russie. On ne saurait distinguer ce qui chez Gueullette, participe de la compilation, de l'emprunt ou même du plagiat, et ce qui est de la plume de l'auteur. Une chose est certaine, la lecture des Mille et une nuits traduits par Galland (dont le premier recueil paraît en 1704) l'a profondément marqué, et il tient une place importante entre les contes du XVIIe, la réceprion des Mille et une nuits et les contes de Crébillon, d'Hamilton et d'autres, pour lesquels l'Orient est une source inépuisable d'inventions et de transgressions morales.

        Observations Upon the Prophecies of Daniel and the Apocalypse of St. John

      ondon- J Darby and T Browne, 1733 Book. Good. Hardcover. First edition.. A rather uncommon first edition of Newton's Observations upon the Prophecies. The first edition. Collated: complete. Isaac Newton was an English mathemtician, astronomer and physicist recognised as one of the most influential scientists of all time. Newton considered his esoteric work more important than his mathematical and scientific works, for which he is better known. Had they been made public, Newton's views on his Christian faith would not have been considered orthodox by the prevailing attitudes of the day, and for this reason he did not publish them during his lifetime. This volume was published the year after his death.

        Schwäbische Chronick, Worinnen zu finden ist, was sich von Erschaffung der Welt an biß auf das Jahr 1596. in Schwaben, denen benachbarten Gegenden, auch vieler anderer Orten, zugetragen [.]. Aus dem Lateinischen erstmals übersetzt, und mit einer Continuation vom Jahr 1596. biß 1733. auch einem Vollständigen Register versehen [.] Ausgefertiget von Johann Jacob Moser. 2 Bände.

      Frankfurt Metzler und Erhard 1733 - 9 Bl., 912 S., Sp. 913-920, S. 921-963; 1 Bl., 738, 81 (recte 95) S., 43 Bl. Fol. (36 x 24 cm). Pergament der Zeit mit handschriftlichem Rückentitel. Erste deutsche Ausgabe, die lateinische Originalausgabe war 1595-96 in Frankfurt veröffentlicht worden. - Das voluminöse Hauptwerk des Altphilologen Crusius (1526-1607), die erste Gesamtdarstellung schwäbischer Geschichte und bis heute eine grundlegende kultur- und landesgeschichtliche Quelle. Der geborene Franke Crusius (Kraus) war seit 1554 Rektor der Lateinschule in Memmingen bevor er 1559 eine Professur für lateinische und griechische Sprache an der Universität Tübingen erhielt, er gilt als "Vorkämpfer des Philhellenismus in Europa" (NDB III, 433 nach Zachariades). Der Herausgeber Johann Jakob Moser (1701-1785) aus Stuttgart gilt mit Johann Stefan Pütter als der bedeutendste Staatsrechtler des alten Reiches. Neben der Biographie Crusius' und der Fortführung der Chronik bis zur Gegenwart (Band II, S. 485-738) ist besonders seine "Bibliotheca scriptorum de rebus Suevicis" bemerkenswert, eine teils kommentierte Bibliographie "von mehr dann tausend gedruckt- und ungedruckten Schrifften, welche Schwaben gantz oder zum Theil angehen". Petzholdt urteilt: "Ist, obwohl hier und da etwas oberflächlich, doch im Ganzen für ihre Zeit höchst schätzbar" (Bibliotheca bibliographica 819). - Kaum fleckig, Innengelenke mit geringen Wurmspuren. Das Pergament der Einbände etwas fleckig und an den seitlichen Kanten stellenweise von den Deckeln gelöst. Schönes Exemplar. *Heyd 112. NDB III, 433. Schömbs, Moser, 61. Wegele 394.

Ex archetypo Sinensi edidit additis notitiis Sinicis . cum tabula aenea.Nurnberg and Altdorf, J.F. Kussler and J.C. Monath, 1802. Small 4to. With a large folding engraved plate (32.5 x 30.5 cm) with the Kangxi Emperor's edict of 1716, a full-page woodcut table with about 65 Chinese characters on an integral leaf, and 3 woodcuts with Chinese characters in the text. Finely bound in 20th-century red half morocco.

      - Cordier, Sinica, col. 638; Löwendahl 718; Walravens 132. First and only edition of a publication of primary documents and notes concerning China in general and the Jesuits in China in particular, written and compiled by the remarkable Nürnberg Unitarian scholar Christoph Gottlieb von Murr (1733-1811). The full-page woodcut in Chinese giving a Linnaean classification of Chinese quadrupeds is the first Linnaean classification of Chinese animals and probably the first Linnaeana of any sort in Chinese.In 1706, at the height of the Chinese Rites Controversy, the Kangxi Emperor appointed two Jesuit missionaries as his envoys to Rome, but both died when their ship capsized off the coast of Portugal. In 1708 he appointed two new envoys, who died in 1711 and 1720. In 1716 the Emperor issued an edict on 31 October: a circular letter to all Westerners in China, noting that no word about the four envoys had been received and that there had been no response to the Emperor's enquires, and that the Imperial government therefore could not place its trust in any communications from the West. The rites issue lead the Emperor to expel Catholic missionaries from China and severely damaged Sino-European relations.In fine condition. The back board is very slightly rubbed and the letterpress spine label is slightly worn, but the binding is otherwise also fine. A fine copy of an important work on China and the Jesuits there, by an excellent and versatile scholar.

Late Envoy Extraordinary at the Court of Dresden: together with other several pieces on various subjects. Published by Mrs. Eugenia Stanhope, from the originals now in her Possession

      The Third Edition. In Four Volumes (complete set). Octavo. Collation: Volume I: Engraved frontispiece of Stanhope, XVI, 352 pages / Volume II: (2), 355 pages / Volume III: (2), 376 pages / Volume IV: (2), 364 pages. (Collation complete). Hardcover / Original full calf with gilt lettering on original spinelabels. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Smaller dampstain to lower first and last two pages of two volumes only. The bindings a little shaky but holding. Provenance: From the library of Robert Doyne, with his Exlibris - bookplate to the front pastedown of all four volumes. While he died already in 1733 and these books were published in 1774, it is very likely that the bookplates were still applied by his librarian or family / Sir Robert Doyne (1651-1733) was member of the Irish House of Commons for New Ross from 1692 to 1695, and later a distinguished judge who served as Chief Baron of the Irish Exchequer from 1695 to 1703 and Chief Justice of the Irish Common Pleas from 1703 to 1714. In the latter year like all the senior judges in Ireland appointed under Queen Anne he was removed by the new administration while allegations of corruption were made, the removal seems to have been a simple matter of politics. Although the Irish House of Commons passed a resolution that he had acted corruptly no further action seems to have been taken against him and he lived in peaceful retirement for many years. (Wikipedia) Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield KG PC (22 September 1694 24 March 1773) was a British statesman, and a man of letters, and wit. He was born in London to Philip Stanhope, 3rd Earl of Chesterfield, and Lady Elizabeth Savile, and known as Lord Stanhope until the death of his father, in 1726. Educated at Trinity Hall, Cambridge, he subsequently embarked on the Grand Tour of the Continent, to complete his education as a nobleman, by exposure to the cultural legacies of Classical antiquity and the Renaissance, and to become acquainted with his aristocratic counterparts and the polite society of Continental Europe. In the course of his post-graduate tour of Europe, the death of Queen Anne (r. 17021707) and the accession of King George I (r. 17141727) opened a political career for Stanhope, and he returned to England. In the British political spectrum he was a Whig and entered government service, as a courtier to the King, through the mentorship of his relative, James Stanhope, 1st Earl Stanhope, the King's favourite minister, who procured his appointment as Lord of the Bedchamber to the Prince of Wales. --------------- He was a selfish, calculating and contemptuous man, not naturally generous, and he practised dissimulation til it became part of his nature despite brilliant talents and admirable training, the life of Chesterfield cannot be pronounced a success.[5] His social anxiety and the pains he took to become an orator already had been noticed. Horace Walpole said that he, who had heard the great orators of the time, preferred a speech of Chesterfield to that of any other orator yet the contemporary opinion was that the Earl of Chesterfield's eloquence did not compare with that of Prime Minister Pitt (the Elder). In that regard, James Boswell reported that the poet Samuel Johnson pointedly said about the nobleman Chesterfield, "This man I thought had been a Lord among wits but I find he is only a wit among Lords!" As a politician and statesman, his fame rests upon his short, but brilliant, administration of Ireland as Lord Lieutenant of Ireland (1745-1746). As a courtier, the unrefined Robert Walpole worsted him at the Kings court. Despite being a protector of men of letters, Chesterfields want of heart and head in the quarrel over the dedication to A Dictionary of the English Language (1755), inspired the poet Johnson to rewrite the line Toil, envy, Want, the Patron and the Jayl (The Vanity of Human Wishes [1749], line 160) in a letter bemoaning the conflicts of personality inherent to the patron-artist relation Johnson rebuked Chesterfield: "is not a Patron, My Lord, one who looks with unconcern on a man struggling in the water and when he has reached ground encumbers him with help?" Moreover, on publication of the book Letters to His Son (1774), Chesterfield's advisory correspondence with his natural son, Philip Stanhope, Johnson said that "they teach the morals of a whore, and the manners of a dancing-master" as means for getting on in the world as a gentleman. Letters to His Son The impoverished widow of Chesterfields illegitimate son, Eugenia Stanhope, was the first to publish the book Letters to His Son on the Art of Becoming a Man of the World and a Gentleman (1774), which comprises a thirty-year correspondence in more than four hundred letters begun in the 173738 period and continued until the death of his correspondent, Philip Stanhope, in 1768. Chesterfield wrote the greatest volume of letters in the eight-year period 174654 and, to refine his sons command of languages, he wrote him letters in French, English, and Latin, mostly instructive communications about geography, history, and classical literature Chesterfield's later letters, addressed to Philip Stanhope, diplomat, are about politics. As a handbook for worldly success in the 18th century, the Letters to His Son give perceptive and nuanced advice for how a gentleman should interpret the social codes that are manners thus, on 9 March 1748, Chesterfield advises Philip, against coarseness of demeanour:I would heartily wish that you may often be seen to smile, but never heard to laugh, while you live. Frequent and loud laughter is the characteristic of folly and ill-manners it is the manner in which the mob express their silly joy at silly things and they call it being merry. In my mind, there is nothing so illiberal, and so ill-bred, as audible laughter. I am neither of a melancholy nor a cynical disposition, and am as willing and as apt to be pleased as anybody but I am sure that since I have had the full use of my reason nobody has ever heard me laugh. Despite having been an accomplished essayist and epigrammatist in his time, his literary reputation, as a narrative writer, derives from Letters to His Son on the Art of Becoming a Man of the World and a Gentleman (1774) and Letters to His Godson (1890), books of private correspondence and paternal and avuncular advice, which were not meant for publication.

        The Cryes of the City of London Drawne after the Life. In 74 Copper Plates.

      Printed and Sold by Henry Overton at the White Horse without Newgate. [c.1733] - 74 fine engraved copper plates, including 2 titles, by Pierce Tempest after Marcellus Laroon. Folio. Some v. sl. foxing & occasional minor browning to margins, but a very good clean copy bound in late 18th, or early 19th, century gilt panelled calf, expertly rebacked in matching style; corners neatly repaired, some rubbing & sl. wear to board edges. Near contemporary inscription at blank head of titlepage, ?from Ja, Joye to his daughter Betty?, armorial bookplate of Keane Fitzgerald. Marcellus Laroon?s The Cryes of the City of London were originally published in 1687 by Pierce Tempest, and reprinted by him in 1688, 1689 and 1709. In 1711, 1713, 1731 or 1733 they were reprinted with the addition of numbers by Henry Overton. No exact date is normally attributed to this reprint as it is hard to decipher, but Overton acquired the plates from Tempest some time between 1709 and 1717. The date appears to be 1733; a James Joye is recorded as Treasurer of St Thomas&apos;s Hospital, London in 1738 & 1739. His brother Charles had previously held this position, as well as that of Treasurer of Guy&apos;s Hospital, until his death c.1737. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Exemplar com restauros rudimentares nas págs. 159-160 e anotações coevas manuscritas na página 157. D. José Barbosa é um dos mais importantes escritores do séc. XVIII, uma época pouco estudada, tendo desenvolvido a sua actividade no âmbito da Academia Real da História, no reinado de D. João V. Entre as numerosos trabalhos de história que publicou encontram-se as «Memórias do Colégio Real de S. Paulo da Universidade de Coimbra, Lisboa. 1727». Os materiais reunidos para a elaboração desta obra, serviram-lhe de base para a composição deste poema latino, em 4036 hexâmetros, em que, com uma brilhante e fluída versificação exalta a história do Colégio de S. Paulo da Universidade de Coimbra a que deu o título de Archiathenaeum que se poderia traduzir por "O grande colégio". As páginas preliminares contêm a dedicatória em dísticos latinos, as censuras em latim do P. António dos Reis, do P. Luís Álvares, do conde de Vimioso, D. José Miguel João de Portugal, as licenças em português e «Ao leitor» em dísticos latinos. De páginas 1 a 148 decorre a obra poética em latim, de 149 a 201, notas biográficas e bibliográficas dos alunos do Colégio impressas a duas colunas, de página 203 a 265 índice das funções e profissões exercidas pelos que pertenceram ao colégio, de páginas 267 a 280 índice alfabético dos alunos do colégio. As duas páginas sem numeração no fim contêm adenda às notas biográficas dos alunos. Muito importante para o estudo da poesia novi-latina em Portugal, da história da Universidade de Coimbra, da família dos duques do Cadaval e do ambiente cultural e artístico no reinado de D. João V. Azevedo e Samodães 294 Barbosa Machado, II, 829. ?D. IOZÉ BARBOSA filho do Capitaõ Ioaõ Barbosa Machado, e D.

[Lisboa 23 de Novembro de 1674 - 6 d?Abril de 1750]. Teve por irmãos mais novos o abbade Diogo Barbosa Machado, e Ignacio Barbosa Machado, ambos devidamente commemorados n?este Diccionario. Foi este escriptor um dos que nas suas numerosas e variadas obras mais se approximaram em correcção e pureza de linguagem dos nossos mais distinctos classicos, merecendo por isso os louvores insuspeitos dos criticos de melhor nota. «Juntou a mais rara e copiosa livraria que até o seu tempo se conheceu, sobre assumptos de historia portugueza, com uma curiosidade incansavel.

Papier mäßig gebräunt, stellenweise etwas fleckig, insgesamt jedoch sauber. ADB VI, 555 f. - Wichtiges Quellenwerk zur Geschichte des Nordgaus und speziell zu der des Hochstifts Eichstädt, verfasst von dem Historiker Johann Heinrich von Falckenstein (1686-1760). "Dieser trat als wirklicher Hofrath und Kammerjunker in die Dienste des Fürstbischofs Anton I. von Eichstädt . In diesem seinem neuen Amte erhielt er eine Mission, die mehr noch seinen Neigungen als seinen Fähigkeiten entsprach, nämlich den Auftrag, eine Geschichte des Hochstiftes Eichstädt abzufassen. Es wurden ihm zu diesem Zwecke Archive und Registraturen geöffnet. Der Tod des Fürstbischofs Anton I. (1725) erschütterte aber aus unbekannten Gründen Falkenstein's Stellung; er trat daher im Jahr 1730 als Hofrath in die Dienste des Markgrafen Wilhelm Friedrich von Ansbach . Als das vergleichungsweise wichtigste Werk dürfen immerhin seine sogenannte 'Antiquitates Nordgavienses', das heißt die Eichstädtische Geschichte bezeichnet werden; sie bezeugt zugleich den Unmuth, in welchem Falckenstein von Eichstädt geschieden, und hat zu lebhaften Recriminationen und Erwiderungen Veranlassung gegeben" (ADB). 1743 erschien ein dritter, schließlich 1788 ein Urkundenband. Mit der meist fehlenden großen Faltkarte: "Eigentliche Verzeichnung der Gegend und Prospecten der Hochfürstl. Bischöffl. Haupt u. Residentz Stadt Aichstaedt". Diese zeigt eine Gesamtansicht, umgeben von Ansichten des Doms und Gerichtshofs, darüber eine große Vogelschaukarte von Eichstätt mit der Umgebung (49 x 57 cm). Gutes Exemplar. Einband fleckig, etwas bestossen. Papier mäßig gebräunt, stellenweise etwas fleckig, insgesamt jedoch sauber. Zeitgenössisches Ganzpergament mit Rückentitel in Goldprägung.

        Versuch über die Beschuldigungen welche dem Tempelherrenorden gemacht worden, und über dessen Geheimniss. [Erster von 2 Teilen]. Nebst einem Anhange über das Entstehen der Freymaurergesellschaft. Erstausg.

      II, 215 S., mit gest. Frontispiz, Kl.-8, Neuerer Lederband mit drei Bünden, goldener Deckelvignette u. Rückentext Ackermann V,237 Kloss 2232 Taute 826 u. 827 Wolfstieg I,5138: "Nicolai stellt die Behauptung auf, die deutsche Rosenkreuzerei sei durch R. Fludd im 3. Dezennium d. 17. Jhs nach England gekommen und dort gepflegt, als Frmrei aufgeblüht." - In sich abgeschlossener erster Teil von zwei, der viel Aufsehen erregte, da Nicolai den Templern eine Mitschuld an ihrem Untergang gibt u. angeblich die Freimaurerei in ein schlechtes Licht rückte. Der ursprünglich offensichtlich nicht geplante, aber noch im selben Jahr erschienene (u. hier fehlende) zweite Teil rechtfertigt sich gegenüber den erschienenen Gegenschriften u. gibt entsprechend ergänzende Ausführungen. - Christoph Friedrich Nicolai, auch Nickolai (1733-1811) deutscher Schriftsteller, Verlagsbuchhändler, Historiker u. Hauptvertreter der Berliner Aufklärung. Er führte einen regen Briefwechsel mit den Größen seiner Epoche. Als Freimaurer war er Mitglied der Berliner Loge "Zu den drei Weltkugeln". In der Philosophie war er Gegner Kants und Fichtes, in der Literatur schrieb er gegen den "Sturm und Drang" u. die aufkommende Romantik. Da Nicolais seine Kritik in der Regel polemisch abfasste, folgten heftige Reaktionen der Betroffenen. Bekannt geblieben ist die Auseinandersetzung mit dem jungen Goethe, dessen "Werther" Nicolai unter dem Titel "Freuden des jungen Werthers" 1775 eine Variante mit "glücklichem Ausgang" gegenüberstellte, was Goethe veranlasste, ihn in dem bissigen Gedicht "Nicolai auf Werthers Grabe" zu verewigen. Später verarbeitet er ihn im "Faust", in der Szene Walpurgisnacht, als "Proktophantasmist" (Steißgeisterseher). Ein weiterer literarischer Streit, unter anderem mit Herder u. Johann Georg Hamann, über den "Baphomet" der Tempelherren, setzte im Jahr 1782 ein. Ein Jahr später wurde Nicolai Mitglied der Illuminaten. In diesem Zusammenhang wird Nicolai oft fälschlich der Gesellschaftsname "Diocletian" zugeschrieben richtig ist vielmehr "Lucian". Mitte 1785 ernannte man ihn zum Regenten u. Präfekten von Berlin. - Titel gestempelt u. mit kl. handschrftl. Nr., sehr wenige Fleckspuren u. seltene Rötelanstreichungen, sonst ein erstaunlich frisches u. gutes Expl.
