        ANTI-CATHOLIC MEGA-BROADSIDE / PORTUGUESE AND SPANISH INQUISITION: A VIEW OF THE PRACTICES AND PROCEEDINGS OF THE TRIBUNAL OF THE INQUISITION; ALSO OF THE CEREMONIES PRACTICED BY THE ROMAN CATHOLICKS ON ASH WEDNESDAY & GOOD FRIDAY.

      Broadside (58.5 x 93 cm / 23 x 36.5 inches), composed of 12 distinct panels each with full original hand colour, dissected on the panel boundaries and mounted upon original linen (Very Good, lovely original colour, light even toning, some chipping with minor loss to blank marginal areas of middle and bottom left panels; light vertical line of toning to second row of panels; printers crease to right middle panels). - London: Printed and Sold by John Bowles at the Black Horse in Cornhill, [circa 1735]. Exceptionally rare – an extremely large broadside composed of 12 panels, conveying Anti-Catholic rhetoric by showcasing the horrors of the Iberian Inquisitions as practiced in Portugal, Goa (India) and Spain, published by the prominent London printmaker John Bowles, after templates by Bernard Picart. - This resplendent broadside is one of the rarest, largest and most impressive Anti-Catholic prints published in England during the 18th Century. Issued by the prominent London printer John Bowles it capitalizes on the virulent Anti-Catholic sentiment that was prevalent in Hanoverian England in the years between the two Jacobite invasions of 1715 and 1745. In resplendent fashion, the broadside features twelve illustrated panels, all with brilliant full original colour, depicting a different aspect of the Inquisition as practiced in Portugal, Goa (the capital of Portugal’s Asian empire), and Spain, accompanied by explanatory text. The Iberian Inquisitions were considered to be the most extreme and barbarous manifestation of fanatical Catholicism (which indeed many Catholics found repugnant), and no other subject made the blood of strident Protestants boil hotter. While beautifully made, Bowles’ broadside was nevertheless ‘red meat’ for the street. While the explanatory text below the views was entertaining, the images themselves were accessible to the illiterate and semi-literate (the majority of the British populous). The images employed by Bowles are directly copied from engravings by from the early volumes of Bernard Picart’s Cérémonies et coutumes religieuses de tous les peuples du monde (9 vols., Amsterdam: 1723-1743), edited by Jean-Frédéric Bernard. Picart, in turn borrowed some of this imagery from the engravings of Theodor De Bry, made in Cologne during the 1590s. Picart’s work was incredibly popular throughout Europe, and while, in the words of Jonathan Israel, Picart went to "immense effort to record the religious rituals and beliefs of the world in all their diversity as objectively and authentically as possible", he struggled to hide his Anti-Catholic bias.

Seba, a wealthy Dutch apothecary and member of the Dutch East India Company, was one of the prototypical collectors of natural curiosities and exotic species.

It included birds, reptiles such as lizards and snakes, butterflies and other insects, shells and exotic sea life, unusual mammals such as bats and anteaters, as well as exotic plants. The collection also included some fakes, intended to attract attention and interest, such as a seven-headed hydra.

V., fl. V. und Frontispiz kl. Eckfehlstelle (kein Verlust), tlw. stockfleckig, Gbrsp., Ebd. berieben. - Aufbauend auf seinem unveröffentlichten ersten Werk, legte Grotius, (1583 - 1645), auch die Grundlagen für das Völkerrecht in seinem Buch De jure belli ac pacis („Über das Recht des Krieges und des Friedens“). Das 1625 in Paris erschienene Buch gilt als Grotius` Meisterwerk, das im 17. und 18. Jahrhundert zahlreiche Auflagen erfuhr. Hugo Grotius beschreibt darin zum einen das Recht, welches in Kriegs- und in Friedenszeiten zwischen den Völkern zu gelten habe, zum anderen geht er aber noch viel weiter und zeigt „das Recht der ganzen Menschheit, d. h. alle Rechtsverhältnisse - auch zwischen Einzelpersonen - innerhalb der magna generis humani societas“ auf, so dass das Werk als Abhandlung zum Naturrecht zu klassifizieren ist. Über lange Zeit hinweg galt Grotius als Säkularisierer des Naturrechts. Wenngleich er in \"De jure belli ac pacis\" eine alte, bereits aus der mittelalterlichen Scholastik stammende Denkformel verwendete, wonach gewisse Prinzipien der natürlichen Gerechtigkeit auch dann gelten würden, wenn Gott nicht existieren würde (etiamsi daremus ... non esse Deum), macht er in dem gleichen Werk auch deutlich, dass es eine naturrechtlich umrahmte natürliche Religion gebe: Alle Menschen seien also beispielsweise verpflichtet, an einen einzigen, personalen Gott zu glauben - ein Gedanke, den Grotius in seinen theologischen Werken wie \"Meletius\" und \"Über die Wahrheit des Christentums\" noch näher erläuterte.

        Ierusalem cum Suburbiis. (Jerusalem with suburbs.) .prout tempore Christi floruit, accurate notatis omnibus et praecipue iis locis, in quibus Christus passus est et quae etaim num devota religione a Christianis coluntur, juxta designationem Christiani Adrichomii delineata et aeri incisa per Matthaeum Seutter, S.C.M.G. Augustanum.

      Augsburg circa 1735 - Birds-eye plan after Andrichomius, (58 x 49.5 cm) with 12 columns of text below, title panel in Latin and German above, engraved plan with full original hand-colouring, central horizontal fold, three short marginal splits. Framed and glazed. Plan of ancient Jerusalem and its suburbs, drawn after the earlier Van Adrichom's plan from 1584. This plan was copied by a number of early mapmakers (such as Jodocus Henricus Kramer and Jan Jansson) for their works on the Holy Land. The 1584 version of the plan was issued in the Theatrum Terrae Sanctae et Biblicarum Historiarum by Adrichom in Koln. Adrichom (1533-1585) was a Dutch priest whose scholarly research of the Bible and writings of pilgrims and Josephus made him the acknowledged expert on Holy Land geography. The plan of the city surrounded by many illustrations of biblical and historical interest. It depicts sites and scenes of Jerusalem and its surroundings, which are numbered and identified by two hundred and seventy captions in German, referring to various events from the Old and New Testament. Although the title states that the plan refers to Jerusalem at the time of Christ, there is no chronological order to the scenes, as scenes from the life of Christ appear alongside scenes from the Torah, and ancient characters appear alongside European architecture and characters of the sixteenth century. Georg Matthaus Seutter (1678-1757) was one of the most prolific map publishers in 18th century Germany. He started his career as a brewer but uninspired by the beer business became an apprentice engraver under the the prominent German cartographer J. B. Homann. He later opened his own dealership offering custom made atlases, assembled by request. By 1732 Seutter was one of the most prolific publishers of his time and was honoured by the German Emperor Charles VI with the title of "Imperial Geographer". Although not dated, we know the offered plan was created after this appointment, based on Seutter's signature.

        Description géographique, historique, chronologique, politique, et physique de l'empire de la Chine et de la Tartarie Chinoise, des cartes générales et particulières de ces pays, de la carte générale & des cartes particulières du Thibet, & de la Corée : & ornée d'un grand nombre de figures et de vignettes gravées en taille-douce.

      Paris Lemercier 1735 - Four volumes, folio, with 65 plates after Antoine Humblot, including 8 double plates (costumes, village views, hunting, fishing, etc.), 10 city plans, one plate showing Beijing's observatory, portrait of Confucius, numismatic plate, music plate and 43 maps, most folding, contemporary mottled calf gilt, a fine set. "The first definitive European work on the Chinese Empire" (Hill), here present in "the most desirable and significant edition" (Lada-Mocarski). Du Halde, a Parisian Jesuit, collected and edited the letters, published and unpublished, of twenty seven Jesuit missionaries including particularly Martino Martini's Sinicae Historicae (1658) and Lecomte's Nouveaux Memoires (1696). Although compiled by a Jesuit, Du Halde was under severe pressure to say as little as possible about the progress of Christianity in Asia, lest it would show the disagreements within the Order about such contentious issues as the Rites controversy. Hence the emphasis falls heavily on secular material. Historically the work is regarded as monumental from a textual point of view because of the vast amount and variety of interesting details on Chinese political institutions, education, language, medicine, science, customs, and artefacts, and it is one of the earliest European sources on Chinese ceramics. Visually, it also publishes for the first time 43 maps by Jean-Baptiste Bourgignon d'Anville, the leading cartographer of the time. These maps were commissioned by the Kangxi emperor from Jesuit surveys, printed xylographically in Beijing, then sent to Paris to be engraved by d'Anville. They comprise the second European atlas of China, the first of Tibet and Korea, and include the first published map and account of Vitus Bering's expedition to the North Pacific - this is the first map to depict any part of Alaska. Only about two hundred copies of the first edition were published. Notwithstanding various inaccuracies, Du Halde's work remains today "the bible of European Sinophilia" (Lowendahl).

        Medicina practica, clinica et forensis ...

      Lipsiae : Impensis Caspari Jacobi Eysselii, 1735, 4, (14), 640, (6) pp., Ledereinband d.Zt wie fast immer ohne das Portrait, Rücken erneuert. Selten - Erste Auflage, der lateinisch/deutschen "Medicina Practica, Clinica Et Forensis] Iohannis Daniel Gohlii, Medicinæ Doctoris, Fontis Soterici Freyenwaldensis ...Medicina Practica, Clinica Et Forensis, Sive Collectio Casvvm Rariorvm Ac Notabiliorvm Medico-Clinicorvm ... / Qvam Præmisso Beati Avctoris Vitæ Cvrricvlo In Lvcem Editit Samvel Scharrschmidivs, Medicinæ Licentiatvs."Gohl besuchte das Gymnasium in Berlin und Halle. Anschließend studierte er in Halle Sprachen und Jurisprudenz, seit 1696 - nach einer Krankheit - auch Medizin. Er wurde Schüler G. E. Stahls und F. Hoffmanns. In den Franckeschen Stiftungen war Gohl zeitweise tätig. Nach der Promotion 1698 ging er nach Berlin und übte etwa ein Jahr die ärztliche Praxis aus. Nach seiner Heirat ließ er sich 1699 wieder in Halle nieder, trieb Praxis und hielt medizinische Vorlesungen. Bald muß er jedoch in Gegensatz zu den dortigen Professoren geraten sein. Er zog erneut nach Berlin und war hier als praktischer Arzt tätig. 1711 wurde Gohl Brunnenarzt in Freienwalde - wo er sich von nun an im Sommer aufhielt - und Mitglied der Societät der Wissenschaften in Berlin. Seit 1721 war er Physikus des Oberbarnimschen Kreises mit dem Amtssitz in Wriezen. In der älteren Literatur wird Gohl als ein Anhänger Stahls angesehen, dem keine weitere Bedeutung zukomme. Seine medizinalstatistischen Arbeiten haben jedoch in neuerer Zeit volle Anerkennung gefunden. Gohl zählt zu den praktizierenden Ärzten, die sich um die Verbreitung praktischen medizinischen Wissens bemühten. Die von ihm seit 1717 herausgegebenen "Acta medicorum Berolinensium" sind ein bedeutendes Zeugnis der medizinischen Publizistik zu Beginn des 18. Jahrhunderts. Hier wurden unter anderem wahrscheinlich die beiden ersten deutschen Todesursachenstatistiken veröffentlicht (Band 4, 1719, Band 9, 1722). Gohl versuchte, auch die Geisteskrankheiten in das ärztliche Denken mit einzubeziehen und wissenschaftlich zu bearbeiten. - Mitglied der Leopoldina (1723)."

With the same small woodcut vignette on the title-page of each of the 3 works (a winged putto with foliage and fruits). Modern white sheepskin(?), blue paper sides.

      Not in Cat. NHSM; Knuttel; Picarta; STCN; WorldCat. Only copies located of the first three issues covering four months (all known to have been published) of lists ships lost, stranded or returned damaged, giving the name of the ship and captain, the port of origin and/or destination, and the final location (with some information about the circumstances). They also include some information about ships wrecked earlier when news of their fate has only recently been received. They also include lists of all ships going to and from the Island Texel (and for March and April also out of and into the Maas River), again giving the names of the ships and captains, and their port of departure or destination. Texel and the Maas were among the most important centres of the international shipping trade. Besides the many European points of origin and destination (from Ireland and Spain to Estonia and Saint Petersburg, and from Norway to Italy), the lists include ships going to or coming from Smyrna (Izmir), Guinea, Ceylon, Batavia (Jakarta), Greenland, Strait Davis, Surinam, Curacao, New York and elsewhere. Altogether they cover several hundred voyages.The books themselves make it clear that they were the first three issues of what was supposed to be a continuing serial publication, and the issue for April 1735 still explicitly says it is to be continued monthly, but the present copies of the first three issues covering January to April 1735 (January and February in a single issue) are the only ones known to survive. It seems likely no more were published and that the short life of the publication and ephemeral nature of its contents led people to discard issues when they became out of date. Fortunately the present copies survived.In very good condition. An essential source for any study of the shipping trade ca. 1735.

        The chace [chase]. A poem. By William Somervile, Esq

      London: Printed for G. Hawkins, and sold by T. Cooper at the Globe in Pater-Noster-Row, 1735. First Edition. Full Calf. Near Fine. 4to: [12],106,[2]pp, with frontispiece by Scotin after Gravelot of Apollo receiving his lyre and Diana, goddess of the hunt. Contemporary full mottled calf, spine in six compartments gilt, red morocco lettering piece gilt. An excellent, wide-margined copy, collated and complete, expertly recornered, joints skillfully reinforced, head caps rebuilt. Very minor worming to rear end papers and a few adjacent pages, far from any text, with most pages bright and fresh. Printed by William Bowyer, whose records show 750 copies produced. Provenance: engraved armorial bookplate of John West, first Earl De La Warr (1693-1766), to front paste down, and on the front fly leaf the engraved bookplate of the dukes of Gloucester with the order of the garter motto, 'Honi Soit qui Mal Y Pense,' surmounted by a crown. Foxon S562. According to the ODNB, Somervile had two major interests, writing poetry and the hunting. Both were united in this, his major work, comprising four books of Miltonic blank verse through which he conveyed the excitement and dangers of the hunt. The poem also traces the history of hunting up to the Norman Conquest and provides all manner of incidental information on kennel design; hare, stag, and otter hunting; the breeding and training of dogs, and dog diseases and bites. It's interesting to speculate on West's association with Somervile, who dedicated this, his major work, to Frederick, prince of Wales. In March,1736, West was sent to Saxe-Gotha to accompany Princess Augusta to England, where she was to become Frederick's consort.

Austen 1735 - FIRST EDITION, 2 vols., with 26 engraved plates, some folding, including frontisepiece and 'The Antient Hunting Notes', pp. [vi, 384, 1 (ads)]; [ii, 352], 8vo, contemporary superior quality calf, sides gilt with a crowned monogram, spines gilt in compartments, red lettering pieces, headcap of vol. i chipped, lettering piece to vol. ii partly defective, very good. The first of many editions: later, enlarged, editions were published as 'The sportsman's dictionary; or, the gentleman's companion: for town and country.' We have not identified the monogram, and the internal inscriptions are no more helpful than 'Ante Room', and 'Ld. H's Room.' Schwerdt's collation suggests half-titles, not present here.

Amsterdam, widow of J. van Egmont, [1735]. 3 works in 1 volume. 4to. With the same small woodcut vignette on the title-page of each of the 3 works (a winged putto with foliage and fruits). Modern white sheepskin(?), blue paper sides.

      - Not in Cat. NHSM; Knuttel; Picarta; STCN; WorldCat. Only copies located of the first three issues covering four months (all known to have been published) of lists ships lost, stranded or returned damaged, giving the name of the ship and captain, the port of origin and/or destination, and the final location (with some information about the circumstances). They also include some information about ships wrecked earlier when news of their fate has only recently been received. They also include lists of all ships going to and from the Island Texel (and for March and April also out of and into the Maas River), again giving the names of the ships and captains, and their port of departure or destination. Texel and the Maas were among the most important centres of the international shipping trade. Besides the many European points of origin and destination (from Ireland and Spain to Estonia and Saint Petersburg, and from Norway to Italy), the lists include ships going to or coming from Smyrna (Izmir), Guinea, Ceylon, Batavia (Jakarta), Greenland, Strait Davis, Surinam, Curacao, New York and elsewhere. Altogether they cover several hundred voyages.The books themselves make it clear that they were the first three issues of what was supposed to be a continuing serial publication, and the issue for April 1735 still explicitly says it is to be continued monthly, but the present copies of the first three issues covering January to April 1735 (January and February in a single issue) are the only ones known to survive. It seems likely no more were published and that the short life of the publication and ephemeral nature of its contents led people to discard issues when they became out of date. Fortunately the present copies survived.In very good condition. An essential source for any study of the shipping trade ca. 1735.

        CONSIDERAZIONI del Marchese Giovan Gioseffo Orsi bolognese, Sopra la Maniera di Ben Pensare ne' Componimenti, gia pubblicata dal padre Domenico Bouhours della Compagnia di Gesu. S'aggiungono tutte le scritture . colla di lui Vita e colle sue Rime.

      Bartolomeo Soliani, Modena 1735 - Opera in due volumi in 4°, legatura coeva in pergamena, titoli al dorso, ex libris figurato al verso del piatto, sguardie, 2 magnifiche tavole xilografiche in antiporta (una animatissima scena allegorica al primo volume ed un grande stemma araldico al secondo), frontespizi, prefazione e dedicatoria ad Antonio Rambaldo, XIX, (1), 1 tavola f.t. con ritratto dell'autore, occhiello, altra prefazione, 1 tavola con ritratto del gesuita Bouhours, 726, XXIV, 648 pp., testatine ornate, capilettera istoriati e finalini xilografici ornamentali a piena pagina. I due volumi raccolgono i testi di quella che Toffanin nel suo studio sull'Arcadia definì la prima polemica letteraria internazionale, che vide alcuni tra i maggiori eruditi e letterati italiani del tempo, tra i quali Eustachio Manfredi e Girolamo Baruffaldi, guidati dall'Orsi, schierarsi contro il gesuita francese Dominique Bouhours, che nel suo trattato sulla Maniera di ben pensare ne' componimenti (1687) aveva accusato la tradizione poetica italiana di mancanza di verità e di eccesso di retorica. Come è noto, anche il trattato Della perfetta poesia italiana del Muratori (pubblicato anch'esso da Soliani, stampatore ducale a Modena, nel 1706) era stato in origine concepito come replica al padre Bouhours: cfr. il volume dedicato al Settecento nella Storia della letteratura italiana diretta da Enrico Malato per l'editore Salerno. Splendida rara edizione, stampata su ottima carta vergata, ancor fresca e frusciante, molto curata editorialmente ed arricchita dalle 4 tavole f.t. e dai numerosi fregi ornamentali. In perfetto stato.
