        Histoire des Yncas, Rois du Perou On a joint à cette Edition l'Histoire de la Conquete de la Floride.

      Amsterdam: Jean Frederic Bernard, 1737. - 2 volumes. 4to., (10 x 8 inches). Half-title, sectional title page, 10-page publisher's Advertisement, and engraved vignette above title of Chapter 1 in volume two (occasional spotting throughout). 3 fine folding engraved maps, fine engraved frontispiece in volume one, folding engraved plate, 14 engraved plates (slightly toned). Contemporary brown sheep, the spines in six compartments with five raised bands, gilt lettered in one and decorated in the rest (one or two pale stains and surface abrasions, corners slightly worn). Provenance: Contemporary manuscript ownership inscriptions, blacked out. Later French edition, first published in Lisbon in 1609. With the date misprinted as "MDCCXXVII" (1727) in volume two. WITH 3 VERY FINE ENGRAVED MAPS, including "Carte de la Louisiane et du Cours du Mississippi" by de l'Isle, "Le Cours de Fleuve Missisipi Selon les Relations les plus modernes" by J. F. Bernard, and a map of Peru. The author, known as "the Inca" to distinguish him from the famous poet of the same name, was the son of the Spanish conquistador Sebastian Garcilaso de la Vega, and of Princess Isabel Chimpu Ocllo, the granddaughter of the last Inca emperor. This translation into French contains Garcilaso's two works, "The Incas of Peru" and "The Conquest of Florida," as well as Hennepin's "Discovery of a Country greater than Europe." " Inca Garcilaso also appears to have been an authentic success in France and the Netherlands, where he was continually translated and reedited between 1633 and 1745. The first part of the 'Comentarios reales' appeared in France in 1633 through Jean Baudoin's translation, entitled 'Le commentaire royal, or l'histoire des Yncas, Roys du Perou [ ] Escrite en langue Peruvienne par l'Ynga Garcilasso de la Vega.' A prolific writer and translator, best known for his French version of Francis Bacon's Essays, Baudoin (1564-1650) moved in the literary circles of the French court. In spite of his claim that Garcilaso's work was originally written in the 'Peruvian language' (Quechua), one can give credit to Baudoin for noticing that the 'Comentarios reales' is a recollection of legendary stories, myths, customs, and laws, translated by Inca Garcilaso from the Quechua language. Quechua, as we know, was the language which Inca Garcilaso imbibed with his mother's milk - 'la lengua que mamé en la leche,' as he repeatedly declares. In his dedicated to Prince Louis de Bourbon, Baudoin praises this 'very true history,' which conforms with 'the style and good sense of the author who wrote it.' The Incas, claims Baudoin, not only excelled in their natural knowledge of morals and politics, but also in 'the true institution of the Laws and customs of their Empire.' Their admirable genius 'met that of Plato, in order to form the idea of a perfect government, and to give the highest import to public tranquility.' Baudoin soon followed with his translation of the second part of the 'Comentarios reales,' entitled 'Histoire des guerres civiles Espagnols dans les Indes' (1650). "Both French versions of Garcilaso's histories of Peru experienced tremendous success in early modern France and the Netherlands, where at least twelve editions of 'Le commentaire royal (Histoire des Yncas)' and 'Histoire des guerres civiles des Espagnols' ensued (Paris: 1633, 1650, 1658, 1672; Amsterdam: 1633, 1704, 1706, 1715, 1737, 1744, and 1745). In addition, Garcilaso's 'La Florida del Inca,' which recounts the history of Hernando de Soto's tragic Florida expedition, was also translated into French and other languages in this period. The fervor elicited by Garcilaso's masterpiece resulted in a revised edition of Baudoin's 'Histoire des guerres civiles des espagnols dans les Indes,' published in Amsterdam in 1706. Its editor, Gerald Kuyper affirmed that he had been compelled to reprint Baudoin's translation in response to the incessant demands of the public" (Di Biase, ed., pp. 211-212). The fine engraved frontispiece and some of the plates are

        Hortus Cliffortianus.

      Plantas exhibens quas In Hortis tam Vivis quam Siccis, Hartecampi in Hollandia, coluit ... Georgius Clifford ... Reductis Varietatibus ad Species, Speciebus ad Genera, Generibus ad Classes, Adjectis Locis Plantarum natalibus Differentiisque Specierum. Cum tabulis aeneis. Amsterdam 1737. With frontispiece and 36 copperengraved plates, some folded. Folio. [12] + [28] + 501 + [15 pp. Contemporary full mottled calf, rebacked in old style.. In 1736 George Clifford became famous for growing the first indoor banana tree, and for this reason Linnaeus was eager to work with him. Clifford commissioned Linnaeus to create the Hortus Cloffortianus, a catalogue of the plants in his garden and herbarium.Hortus Cliffortianus Introduction page to the Hortus Cliffortianus. In 1736, on a visit to the house of the botanist Johannes Burman (1706-1779), Clifford was introduced to an up-and-coming young Swedish botanist, Carl Linnaeus, who was living and working there. Linnaeus, who was to become one of the most noted natural historians of all time, later visited Clifford's garden and impressed him with his botanical knowledge. Clifford was most keen to employ Linnaeus at the Hartekamp and, with the inducement of a volume of Sir Hans Sloane's 'Natural History of Jamaica', persuaded Burman to let Linnaeus go and join him as his physician and horticulturist. Clifford had a tendency to hypochondria and was no doubt pleased to have a physician on his doorstep. So, in 1735 Linnaeus started his 'dream job' of supervising the hothouses and naming specimens and classifying them according to his own system. During his stay he was to produce an important botanical work which is of value to taxonomists and historians to this day, the Hortus Cliffortianus, in which he described many new species from living and dried specimens in Clifford's possession. The Hortus Cliffortianus contains a number of illustrations by Jan Wandelaar (1690-1759). Its symbolism, including a young Apollo with Linnaeus' features, casting aside the shroud of darkness (ignorance), has been discussed by Callmer & Gertz (1954) and summarised by Stearn (1957: 46-47).Linnaeus arranged the plants according to his own sexual system, classifying them into groups based on the numbers and form of their male and female parts. Each species was allocated to a genus, and given a short phrase-name in Latin, describing the features which served to distinguish one species from another. Linnaeus also included synonyms of earlier authors, distributional information, and sometimes a short description.The significance of these entries lies in the fact that when Linnaeus, 15 years later, introduced the consistent use of binomial nomenclature in his Species Plantarum (1753), he took many of his species concepts direct from the accounts in this work.Consequently, many of his binomial names are based on the specimens contained in the Clifford herbarium, and it contains a great many type specimens for Linnaean names. George Clifford died in 1760 and left the business and property to his sons.The Hortus Cliffortianus is a work of early botanical literature published

First edition of this Catholic catechism. Challoner (1691–1781) was eventually vicar apostolic to the London district; he published a wide variety of religious works; in Cardinal Wiseman's words, "supplied, in fact, almost the entire range of necessary or useful religious literature for his Catholic fellow-countrymen". His career spanned a period when Catholicism was mostly not persecuted in England, though he was to die of a stroke in the immediate aftermath of the Gordon riots. In the preface he attacks Conyers Middleton's argument in his Letter from Rome (1729) that popery was a revival of paganism.

        pl. 19 The Bean

      An exquisitly detailed hand colored botanical engraving by Elizabeth Blackwell from her book"A Curious Herbal Containing Five Hundred Cuts of the Most Useful Plants Which are Now Used in the Practice of Physick", which was published in London in 1737-39. Overal this print measures 11.25"x18". In 1737, Elizabeth produced a delightful volume, A Curious Herbal, containing many decorative plates of various plants. Such herbals, illustrating and describing plants for their alleged medicinal powers, were the medical books of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The story of Blackwell?s book is particularly interesting.Talented and fiercely independent women seem to have flourished in the field of botanical illustration. Mrs. Blackwell - apparently neither an artist nor a botanist - was suddenly faced with the problem of obtaining her doctor husband?s release from a debtor?s prison, where he was languishing after an abortive foray into the printing business. On the advice of Sir Hans Sloane, the famous London Physician and patron of naturalists, who had told her that a herbal of medicinal plants was needed, the resourceful lady set herself up in lodgings near the Chelsea Physic Garden , founded by the Society of Apothecaries on a piece of land donated by Sloane, and proceeded to make drawings of the appropriate plants. The result of her initiative and labors was A Curious Herbal, with 500 hand-colored copperplate engravings. The indirect result was Dr. Alexander Blackwell?s release from prison. Her efforts on his behalf certainly seem worthwhile today to anyone looking at A Curious Herbal.    Overall this print is in good condition with some foxing/staining/creasing along margins. Some darker staining behind image.

      - Florey in Mitteilungen der Gesellschaft für Salzburger Landeskunde, Bd.133, S261ff.: ?Eine der wesentlichsten Ursachen dafür, daß sich die Lehre Luthers im Erzstift Salzburg, und nicht nur in ihm so rasch verbreiten und in Stadt und Land Anhänger finden konnte, war das fast völlige Fehlen einer leicht verständlichen katholischen Literatur in deutscher Sprache. Um eine weitere Verbreitung lutherischer Gedanken durch zurückgebliebene Geheimprotestanten oder durch heimliches Lesen der verbotenen Literatur zu verhindern, schien es geboten, eine volkstümliche katholische Literatur zu schaffen. Sie sollte ihre Leser im Glauben stärken und zugleich die lutherische Lehre widerlegen. Deshalb beauftragte schon bald nach der Vertreibung der Protestanten Erzbischof Firmian selbst den Priester Guilielm Christoph Weissenbacher mit der Abfassung eines solchen Werks. Weissenbacher war ein ebenso belesener wie theologisch gebildeter Priester, der sich als volkstümlicher Prediger bereits einen Namen gemacht hatte.1737 erschien schon der erste Band der von ihm verfaßten Schrift in Druck. Acht Jahre später, 1745, folgte der zweite Band. Ganz gewiß hat Weissenbachers Werk ein gut Teil dazu beigetragen, die Glaubenseinheit im Erzbistum wiederherzustellen.?- Tls. etw. braunfleckig, Innendeckel mit Exlibris, Schließen defekt, Ebd. fleckig u. berieben.

According to Ernesti and Harles, the notes of Vulpius are not so much in emendation of the text, as in illustration of the poet by selecting parallel passages from ancient and modern writers" (Dibdin I, p. 245)."Gian Antonio Volpi, born at Padua in 1686, studied in his native town and became a good Latin and Greek scholar. In 1717 he and his brother Gaetano Volpi established a printing press in their house for the purpose of bring out correct editions of classic authors, and they engaged for their assistant the printer Giuseppi Comino. This press - known by the name Volpi-Cominiana, produced among others a valuable edition of Catullus with copious notes. The edition was much commended by scholars, and the city of Verona struck a gold medal, which was presented to Volpi" (Long, George.

        La vérité des miracles opérés par l' intercession de M. de Paris. Démontrée contre M. l' Archevêque de Sens.,

      Libraires de la Compagnie, Utrecht 1737 - Originaler Einband, Ganzleder der Zeit. Goldornamentik am Rücken, sehr guter Zustand, durchgehend sauber, keine Stockflecken. Buchblock tadellos; ca. 900 Seiten, 19 Teile in 1 Band, jeweils neubeginnend paginiert, vollständig vorliegend. Frontispiz Portrait F.de Paris, 19 Kupfertafeln - davon 1 Falttafel (vorher - nachher bez. Wunder), 19 magnifiques gravures, propres, sans rousseurs. Gestochen von P. Yver, guter Druck, Titelvignetten. Die erste Wunderheilung (miracles) ist die vom Autor selbst. Alle acht folgenden Wunderheilungen werden begleitet von einem Kommentar (conséquences qu on doit tirer des miracles) und einer Beweisführung (pièces justificatives). Darstellungen der Wunderheilungen, die sich am Grabe des asketischen Diakons François de Paris zugetragen haben. François de Paris (1690-1727) gehörte zu den extremen Jansenisten. Nach seinem Tod kamen die Menschen an sein Grab, um zu beten und die Wunderheilungen fanden immer in der Begleitung von Konvulsionen statt. Bald darauf wurde der Friedhof zu einem Schauplatz von schwerer Hysterie befallenen Menschen. Montgeron, der auf dem Grab des Diakons im September 1731 konvertierte, wurde zum großen Apostel der Konvulsionen und Selbstbestrafungen, die sogar bis zur Selbstkreuzigung führten. Eine der ersten, die geheilt wurden, war die Nichte von Blaise Pascal, an einem Augenfollikel leidend. Der Friedhof wurde dann geschlossen und Montgeron endete in der Bastille. "Apres la mort de François de Paris sur le territoire de la paroisse Saint-Médard, les gens vinrent prier sur sa tombe et nombre de guérisons spectaculaires s'y produisirent, toujours accompagnées de convulsions nerveuses. Bientôt le cimetière offrit le spectacle de véritables scènes d'hystérie. Le grand apôtre des convulsions et des secours (pénitences corporelles allant jusqu'a la crucifixion, que s'imposaient les convulsionnaires) fut le parlementaire Carre de Montgeron, converti sur le tombeau du diacre Paris en Septembre 1731". (Louis Cognet : le Jansénisme, P.U.F. 1961) "Le Roi décida en 1732 d'en faire interdire l'accès ; un inconnu malicieux posa une affichette sur la palissade fermant le cimetière, avec ces mots : "De par le Roi, défense à Dieu de faire miracle en ce lieu " (on peut toujours voir la porte murée à l'angle de la rue Daubenton et de la rue Candolle). La paroisse fut un lieu de forte résistance à la Bulle Unigenitus publiée en 1713 et en particulier à partir de mars 1752 avec la question des billets de confession (voir Christophe de Beaumont). Durant la Révolution, l'église est fermée et le culte aboli en novembre 1793. Elle est rouverte par un décret de la Convention de mai 1795. La paroisse partage son église avec les théophilanthropes et avec le culte décadaire elle s'appellera Temple du Travail pendant dix mois. " (Wikipedia). 19 x 26 Cm. 1,7 Kg.

Legatura coeva p. vitello con triplo ordine di filetti dorati ai piatti. Dorso a 5 nervi decorati in oro con titolo in oro entro tassello e ricchi fregi dorati entro scomparti. Tagli dorati, unghie decorate in oro, sguardie a piuma di pavone. Frontespizio in rosso e in nero con vignetta calcografica. Antiporta incisa su rame con François de Paris in adorazione del Crocifisso e altre 19 tavv. calcografiche f.t. di elegante fattura raffiguranti eventi e guarigioni miracolose, di cui una su doppia pag. rappresentante il pellegrinaggio alla tomba dell'ecclesiastico. Le incisioni sono di Pieter Yver da disegno di Jean Restout. Magnifico esemplare. Seconda edizione, immediatamente posteriore alla prima, di questo resoconto degli eventi prodigiosi operati da François de Paris (Parigi, 1690-ivi, 1727), Diacono della chiesa parigina. Alla sua morte il religioso venne inumato nel cimitero di Saint-Médard e i giansenisti sparsero rapidamente la voce che sul suo sepolcro fossero avvenute delle guarigioni portentose. Tali voci dettero origine anche a fenomeni di isteria convulsiva (che riguardarono anche il fratello di Voltaire, Armand Arouet) e a lunghe processioni sulla tomba dell'ecclesiastico, tali da far decidere al clero parigino di chiudere il cimitero, sui cui muri venne scritto, alcuni giorni dopo, in segno di scherno: "De par le roi, défense à Dieu De faire miracle en ce lieu". Il Montgeron si era recato a Saint-Médard prima della sua chiusura con atteggiamento del tutto scettico, volendo provare la falsità dei miracolo di cui si narrava, ma il suo scetticismo ebbe a decadere; egli divenne un ardente seguace spirituale di François de Paris e scrisse il presente libro proprio per affermare la verità dei miracoli attribuitigli. La prima tiratura, di 5000 copie, era stata impressa a Parigi senza luogo di stampa e senza indicazioni tipografiche, ma tale impressione venne rapidamente sequestrata e in gran parte distrutta in un rogo dinanzi alla Bastiglia. Lo stesso Montgeron per aver osato presentare copia del volume al Re di Francia e al Duca di Orléans venne incarcerato alla Bastiglia e poi a Valence, dove si spense dopo 17 anni di carcerazione nel 1754.

        THE AMERICAN ALMANACK FOR THE YEAR OF CHRISTIAN ACCOUNT, 1738

      Philadelphia: Printed and Sold by Andrew Bradford, [1737].. [24]pp. including two woodcut illustrations. 12mo. Printed self-wrappers, stitched. Contemporary numerical ink annotation in outer margin of p.[20]. Fine, untrimmed. In a half morocco and cloth box. A fine copy of Titan Leeds' AMERICAN ALMANACK for 1738, the year of the author's death. The death of Titan Leeds was a subject of some controversy earlier in the decade, when Benjamin Franklin, writing as Richard Saunders in the first issue of the "Poor Richard" almanac (and inspired by Jonathan Swift's famous Bickerstaff hoax of 1708), predicted that his "good friend and fellow- student" would die "on October 17, 1733, 3 hr. 29 m., P.M., at the very instant of the conjunction of the Sun and Mercury." When Leeds announced his survival the following year, launching invectives at his competitor, "Saunders" responded in his 1734 almanac that his "dear friend" must, indeed, have died, as the true "Mr. Leeds was too well bred to use any man so indecently and so scurrilously" as he had used "Poor Richard" in his protests. For the next several years Richard Saunders continued to insist that Leeds was no more, and following the announcement of Leeds' actual death in 1738, Saunders printed a letter from Leeds' ghost admitting: "I did actually die at that moment, precisely at the hour you mentioned, with a variation of 5 minutes, 53 seconds." The "ghost" of Titan Leeds, in fact, hovered in the imprint of THE AMERICAN ALMANACK through its 1746 issue, the final year for which Leeds was said to have calculated the calendar before dying. In addition to the calendar, the 1738 AMERICAN ALMANACK contains schedules for courts, Quaker and Baptist meetings, and fairs; a list of roads and distances between points from Boston to South Carolina; a catalogue of living monarchs and their dates of birth; an excerpt from THE DUNCIAD; original verse; a bookseller's advertisement for Andrew Bradford; and a note to the reader with apocalyptic speculations pertaining to the Pope. The titlepage features an elaborate armorial woodcut, and a woodcut anatomical depiction of the zodiac appears on page [3]. DRAKE 9600. EVANS 4150. HILDEBURN 557. NAIP w022437.

Large paper copy of the famous edition of Sallust by the short lived Gottlieb Kortte (1698–1731), whose installation as professor of jurisprudence at Liepzig in 1726 Bach hailed in the allegorical cantata "Vereinigte Zwietracht". Kortte's edition of Sallust was first published in 1724. Samuel Charles Smith (usually styling himself C. Smith, as here) was one of the most competent London binders of the early 19th century. He was born about 1790, and was active from about 1813 to probably 1840. He was one of a number of binders to earn William Beckford's displeasure and features in Beckford's letters to his bookseller, George Clarke, in 1831 as "Beast Smith" (see Hobson, "William Beckford's binders", Festschrift Ernst Kyriss, pp. 375-81). The celebrated library of Sir John Thorold at Syston Park contained a number of books bound by Smith.

        Seria mixta jocis seu libri tres epigrammatum quibus Vienna Austriae metropolis continetur.

      Wien, Johann Baptist Schilg, 1737. - (8), 114 SS. Wiener Marmorband der Zeit über Holzdeckeln mit hs. Rückenschildchen. Dreiseitiger gesprenkelter Rotschnitt. 8vo. Bemerkenswerte Beschreibung des Wiens des Hochbarock in großteils humorigen lateinischen Epigrammen. Das erste Buch behandelt Kaiser Karl VI., das politische und das Kriegsgeschehen der Zeit und die Herrscherfamilie; unter den Epigrammen auch "einige auf die Heirat der Erzherzogin Maria Theresia mit Franz Stephan von Lothringen und die Geburt ihres ersten Kindes. Auch vom Tod des im Jahr zuvor verstorbenen Prinzen Eugen handeln mehrere der Gedichte ('Extinctum Martem dum sua turba dolet'). Im zweiten Buch werden die repräsentativen Bauwerke und Institutionen Wiens vorgestellt, darunter die universitären Einrichtungen und die Hofbibliothek. Im dritten Buch lernt der Leser aber auch den Alltag und die weniger glänzenden Seiten Wiens in Epigrammen kennen: Das Kärtnertor und den Tandelmarkt, die Kaffeehäuser und die Fischer am Donauufer, das Zuchthaus und das Armenhaus. Auch von den Einwohnern und Besuchern der Stadt, von Minderheiten, verschiedenen Berufsgruppen und Nationalitäten ist die Rede: Von Rauchfangkehrern und Nachtwächtern, von Milchmädchen und Fetzentandlerinnen; von Ungarn, Schweizern und Polen; von Säufern und von Spielern; von ungebildeten Lehrern und von Ärzten, die ihr Handwerk nicht verstehen. Und obwohl diese humoristischen Epigramme oft mehr als unfreundlich ausfallen, erlauben sie uns doch einen interessanten Blick auf das Wien des Jahres 1737" (ÖNB). - Ecken bestoßen; papierbedingt durchgehend etwas braunfleckig.

        Broadside from Charles VI, Holy Roman Emperor, announcing alliance with Russia in their war with the Ottoman Empire

      1737 - Decree of Charles VI, Holy Roman Emperor, announcing that he will be an ally of RUssia in their war with the Ottoman Empire (1735-1738). After the announcement, there follows an offer to peoples under Ottoman rule to surrender, and for those who want freedom from the Turks there is a description of priveleges that will be granted to them (i.e. freedom from pillage and plunder by his army). The document is dated June 1737, with the space for the day of the month left blank. Charles VI (1 October 1685 – 20 October 1740) was the penultimate Habsburg sovereign of the Habsburg Empire. He succeeded his elder brother, Joseph I, as Holy Roman Emperor, King of Bohemia (Charles II), Hungary and Croatia (Charles III), Archduke of Austria, etc., in 1711. He unsuccessfully claimed the throne of Spain as Charles III following the death of its ruler, and Charles's relative, Charles II of Spain, in 1700. This is a particularly fine broadside, with woodcut initial, and what may be the signature of "Carolus VI" (or a clerk of his) at the bottom left, with further undecipherable text underneath. Lower right has the signature of Johannes Christopherus Bartenstein. Printed on thick, laid paper, folded; measures 36x41cm, or 14x16.25in. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      Venice: Giovanni Battista Paschal, 1737 - Large quarto (307 × 225 mm), in two parts, with continuous pagination and register. Bound by C. Smith in early 19th-century dark green diagonal-straight-grained morocco, spine divided in six compartments by wide raised bands, gilt lettered in two, others with gilt borders, sides with four-line gilt rules and elaborate scroll tools at corners; board edges and turn-ins ruled in gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Bookplates of Syston Park, Sir John Hayford Thorold, and William Henry Smith, founder of the stationers W. H. Smith. Extremities a little rubbed, but a fine copy handsomely bound. Title printed in red and black. Large paper copy of the famous edition of Sallust by the short lived Gottlieb Kortte (1698–1731), whose installation as professor of jurisprudence at Liepzig in 1726 Bach hailed in the allegorical cantata "Vereinigte Zwietracht". Kortte's edition of Sallust was first published in 1724. Samuel Charles Smith (usually styling himself C. Smith, as here) was one of the most competent London binders of the early 19th century. He was born about 1790, and was active from about 1813 to probably 1840. He was one of a number of binders to earn William Beckford's displeasure and features in Beckford's letters to his bookseller, George Clarke, in 1831 as "Beast Smith" (see Hobson, "William Beckford's binders", Festschrift Ernst Kyriss, pp. 375-81). The celebrated library of Sir John Thorold at Syston Park contained a number of books bound by Smith. [Attributes: First Edition]
