        Nouveaux Memoires du Baron de Pöllnitz, contenant l‘histoire de sa vie, et la relation de ses premiers voyages. Nouvelle edition. 2 Teile in 1 Band.

      Frankfurt, Aux depens de la compagnie 1738 - 2 Bll., 408 S.; 1 Bl., 367 S. Mit gestochenem Frontispiz und 2 Titelvignetten. Kl.-8°. Pergament der Zeit. ADB 26, 398.- Hayn/Got. VI, 217.- Karl Ludwig Freiherr von Pöllnitz (1692-1775) beschreibt sich selbst als einen ‚Cavalier von Geist und feiner Lebensart, aber Abenteurer ersten Ranges .‘. „ Seine Memoiren und Reisebeschreibungen waren ‚für die Cavaliere jener Zeit das, was der Baedeker für die heutigen Touristen ist‘. In seinen Erinnerungen gibt Pöllnitz ‚eine Darstellung seiner früheren Reisen (Deutschlands kleine und größere Höfe, Holland, Belgien, Frankreich, Italien, Spanien, England) und sonstige Erlebnisse, besonders aber die Vorgänge am Berliner Hofe von 1688-1710‘ (ADB).- „Es würde einen ganzen Band füllen, wollte man all die Wechselfälle der stürmischen Karriere des Barons von Pöllnitz aufzählen; er wechselte / / etliche Male die Religion, war in die Verschwörung Cellamares verwickelt, wurde mit dem System John Laws of Lauriston, eines englischen Finanzmannes in Paris, reich und ruinierte sich damit, saß in einem halben Dutzend Ländern wegen Schulden im Gefängnis, warf sich dem Papst zu Füßen, um ihm zu gestehen, daß er sich zum Priester berufen fühlte, verpasste einige Male um ein Haar eine reiche Heirat und wurde schließlich in die Gehaltsliste der „unterhaltsamen Angestellten“ Friedrichs II. aufgenommen, der sich über ihn lustig machte, aber seine Qualitäten als Erzähler schätzte.“ Vgl. Vgl. Dirk Van der Cruysse: Madame sein ist ein ellendes Handwerk“. Liselotte von der Pfalz – eine deutsche Prinzessin am Hofe des Sonnenkönigs. München 1990, S.595. Auch für diese großartige Biographie Liselottes von der Pfalz wurden die Aufzeichnungen des Freiherrn Von Pöllnitz als Quelle genutzt. - Pergament etwas angeschmutzt, oberes Kapital mit kleiner Fehlstelle.

        Lettres D'un Sauvage Depayse : Contenant Une Critique Des Moeurs Du Siecle, & Des Reflexions Sur Des Matieres De Religion & De Politique

      A Amsterdam, : chez Jean-Francois Jolly, 1738-01-01. Hardcover. Very Good. 12mo. 205p.,, 220p. Bound in contemporary mottled calf. Gilt spine. Page ends washed red. Marbled endpages. Fine binding and cover. Shelfwear. Clean, unmarked pages. Ships daily. A unusual treatise on the reflections of the Old World and the New World. In this work, La Rue's reached a similar conclusion 20 years before Rousseau, where he empahasizes how the loss of "savage reason" was an indication of folly by the Peruvians and Mexicans. (Buccani, Americas in Italian Literature and Culture, 1700-1825, p 66). Such ideas were prevalent towards the end of the Enlightenment and La Rue's book mimics that of Baron de Lahontan dialogues with Adario.

        The Rights of War and Peace, In Three Books, Wherein are Explained...

      1738. The "Best Edition" of Grotius, With "Excellent" Notes Grotius, Hugo [1535-1645]. [Morrice, John (1685-1740), Translator and Editor]. The Rights of War and Peace, In Three Books. Wherein are Explained, The Law of Nature and Nations, And the Principal Points Relating to Government. Written in Latin by the Learned Hugo Grotius, And Translated into English. To Which are Added, All the Large Notes of Mr. J. Barbeyrac. London: Printed for W. Innys [et al.], 1738. [iv], xxxvi, 817 pp. Notes in parallel columns beneath single-column main text. Folio (19" x 14"). Recent period-style quarter calf over marbled boards, raised bands and lettering piece to spine. Some rubbing to extremities with light wear to joints and corners. Light toning to text, spark burns to a few leaves, edgewear to preliminaries and a few other leaves, internally clean. Ex-library. Small perforated stamp to half-tile, another perforated stamp and "144" in small hand to head of title page. A handsome copy. $1,500. * First English edition with Barbeyrac's notes. Lowndes describes this is the "best edition;" Marvin says Barbeyrac's notes are excellent. First published in Paris in 1625, The Rights of War and Peace established the system of modern public international law, based on the concept of "droit naturel," a morality-based law that superseded the personalities of individuals or nations. Grotius describes the situations in which war is a valid tool of law enforcement and outlines the principles of armed combat. Though based on Christian natural law, Grotius advanced the novel argument that his system would still be valid if it lacked a divine basis. In this regard he pointed to the future by moving international law in a secular direction. First published in 1715 (with Barbeyrac's notes), Morrice's edition and translation was produced with the assistance of Edward Littlehales (1690-1724) and John Spavan (1685-1718). Lowndes, Bibliographer's Manual of English Literature (rev. ed.) III:950. Marvin, Legal Bibliography 353. English Short-Title Catalogue T110924.

        AVANTURES DU SR. C. LE BEAU, AVOCAT EN PARLEMENT, OU VOYAGE CURIEUX ET NOUVEAU, PARMI LES SAUVAGES DE L'AMERIQUE SEPTENTRIONALE

      Amsterdam, 1738. Titlepages printed in red and black. 12mo. Contemporary calf, spines gilt extra, raised bands, leather labels. Very minor wear to hinges. On pp.378-379 and 411 of the second volume several sentences have been blacked out in ink (probably contemporary censorship). Otherwise a fresh, clean set, in handsome contemporary bindings. Very good. In 1729, Le Beau was transported to New France from a French prison where he had been incarcerated for libertinism. He fled from Quebec to Holland in 1730, having been charged with counterfeiting and thereby facing a death sentence. Sabin describes his narrative as "a pleasant gossiping book, evidencing considerable acquaintance with the subjects described. It contains a description of the manners and customs of the Iroquois, the Hurons, the Algonquins, and other Indian tribes, derived from the author's personal experiences, although the style in which the work is written is rather that of a romance than a true narrative." Of particular interest are the chapters in which the author discusses the habits of the beaver and the religious ideas and customs of the Indians. "A description of Huron, Iroquois, and Algonquin customs, written in charming style and based, the Author claims, on observations made on a trip to America in 1729" - TPL.

The Holy Brotherhood was established by Ferdinand and Isabella to suppress the original municipal leagues and guarantee personal security and public order, and local brotherhoods were organized in New Spain and Peru. An attempt to regulate the power of the brotherhoods, this decree was printed in Madrid and distributed to royal officials in all the provinces of the viceroyalty of Peru. This copy, accomplished at Aranjuez on April 11, 1738, is signed by Miguel de Villanueva as representative of the King of Spain, with the inscription: "Yo el Rey." A manuscript note on the verso of the last printed page, written in the city of Santiago on Nov. 14, 1738, describes an instance of the distribution of the text in Chile. An important proclamation regarding local governance in the viceroyalty of Peru, with a contemporary manuscript inscription regarding the text's distribution in Chile. Not in Medina BHA or OCLC.

        Reflections and resolutions proper for the gentlemen of Ireland, as to their conduct for the service of their country, as landlords, as masters of families, as Protestants, as descended from British ancestors, as country gentlemen and farmers, as Justices of the Peace, as merchants, as Members of Parliament

      Dublin: printed by R. Reilly, for George Ewing. 1738. 8vo., 237 + (1)pp., but with the usual page misnumbering in two places, contemporary calf with raised bands, wanting the title label on spine. A very good copy. First edition: uncommon. Bradshaw 1437. Goldsmiths 7554. Hanson 5136. Not in Kress. Samuel Madden (1686-1765), 'writer and benefactor' as ODNB has it, had almost parallel careers as a Protestant priest in the Church of Ireland on the one hand, and as an enthusiastic contributor to literature and philanthropy on the other. Madden's dedication, 'To all true friends of Ireland', tells the reader that he had written the book 'for your sakes and that of our poor country' but he pulls no punches. 'To speak plainly', he continues, 'to hear a nation bawling out misery and beggary and to see such numbers of her wise and good children fluttering about the world in splendour and magnificence, seems at first sight an irreconcilable contradiction. People that have common sense, humanity and honesty themselves, will be apt to suppose them in others, and can hardly believe that so many noblemen and gentlemen of Ireland can riot and blaze abroad, while some thousands of their fellow citizens are starving for want of their help at home, and their native country is reduc'd to beggary and a deadly consumption'. In the Reflections and resolutions> Madden 'ascribed the low condition of the country to the extravagant and idle disposition of its people, but recommended resident landlords and the encouragement of tillage, linen manufacture, granaries, and credit facilities for Ireland, while stressing that the furtherance of the Irish economy should never harm England's interests. Many of his ideas were not original but came from the works of Thomas Prior, Arthur Dobbs, and George Berkeley. This book was reprinted in 1816 under the patronage of the Dublin benefactor Thomas Pleasants.' [Rosemary Richey in ODNB].

Folio (19" x 14"). Recent period-style quarter calf over marbled boards, raised bands and lettering piece to spine. Some rubbing to extremities with light wear to joints and corners. Light toning to text, spark burns to a few leaves, edgewear to preliminaries and a few other leaves, internally clean. Ex-library. Small perforated stamp to half-tile, another perforated stamp and "144" in small hand to head of title page. A handsome copy. * First English edition with Barbeyrac's notes. Lowndes describes this is the "best edition;" Marvin says Barbeyrac's notes are excellent. First published in Paris in 1625, The Rights of War and Peace established the system of modern public international law, based on the concept of "droit naturel," a morality-based law that superseded the personalities of individuals or nations. Grotius describes the situations in which war is a valid tool of law enforcement and outlines the principles of armed combat. Though based on Christian natural law, Grotius advanced the novel argument that his system would still be valid if it lacked a divine basis. In this regard he pointed to the future by moving international law in a secular direction. First published in 1715 (with Barbeyrac's notes), Morrice's edition and translation was produced with the assistance of Edward Littlehales (1690-1724) and John Spavan (1685-1718).

        Degli occhiali da naso inventati da Salvino Armati ....

      . Firenze, Albizzini, 1738, Kl.4°, XX, 84 pp., Pergamenteinband der Zeit; feines Exemplar.. First Edition of "The first book on the history of spectacles. Domenico Maria (1690-1788) gave credit for the invention to the Florentine Armati (fl. 1300)." - - "In the first section the author discusses the use of spectacles in antiquity, and concludes that the were unknown to the ancients. He deals in the second part with various kinds of lenses-concave, plano, and convex, and their use in magnifying objects, etc. - The special interest of this work is Manni's opinion on the invention of spectacles. In the introduction he expresses his pride as a Florentine citizen and says that, in addition to all the other discoveries Florence has also the honour of the invention of spectacles. In Chapter 7 of the second part Manni quotes the statement of Leopoldo del Migliore that in the Church of St. Maria Maggiore, in Florence, there is a memorial to Salvino degli Armati as follows : - " Here lies Salvino d' Armato, of the family of Armati from Florence, the discoverer of spectacles. May God forgive him his sins. In the year of our Lord 1317 "." John H. Sutcliffe - - "Im Jahre 1738 erschien das berühmte Buch von Manni, Degli occhiaöi da naso. Es hatte einen solchen Erfolg, daß schon 1741 eine mit geringen, unwesentlichen Zusätzen versehener Neudruck erscheinen konnte. Dieser Erfolg ist dem Buch bis zum heutigen Tage treu geblieben ... es ist die Quelle gewesen, aus dem eigentlich alle, die sich mit der Geschichte der Brille je beschäftig haben, schöpften. - - Diesen Erfolg verdankt das Buch wohl zwei Umständen, einmal weil es geschickt alles das , was zerstreut und versteckt über die Geschichte der Brille da war, sammelt, und ferner dem Umstand, daß es ungefähr 450 Jahre nach der Erfindung der Brille der Erfinder der Brille nennt,... - - Domenico Maria Manni stammte aus einer alten Florentiner Buchdruckerfamilie. Sein Vater Giuseppa di Lorenzo Manni, ebenfalls Buchdrucker, Buchhändler und Antiquar, war ein Mann von literarischem Verdienst. Der junge Manni wurde 1690 zu Florenz geboren und früh in dem Geschäft des Vaters zu literarischen Neigungen erzogen. Als er die Druckerei übernahm, legte er sich mit unermüdlichem Eifer auf die Herausgabe alter literarischer Kuriositäten, besonders aus der Geschichte Toskanas. Unter seinen zahlreichen eigenen Werken ist zu nennen das 1731 zu Ferrara erschienene: 'De Florentinis inventis commentarias', in der er unter zahlreichen anderen Erfindungen für seine Vaterstadt schon in Anspruch nimmt die Erfindung des Mikroskops, der Brillen und des Thermometers. Erst sieben Jahre später erschien das Salvino Armati gewidmete Buch. Er war Mitglied mehrerer Akademien, unter anderen der von uns schon erwähnten della Crusca, deren Werke er verlegte. Er starb fast 100 Jahre alt zu Florenz im Jahre 1788. - - In der langen Vorrede bekennt sich der Verfasser stolz als Florentiner, jener Stadt, deren Ruhm die Welt erfülle, der Vaterstadt so vieler berühmter Männer und Erfinder, die nun auch den Ruhm für sich in Anspruch nehmen könne, daß in ihren Mauern der Erfinder der Brillen gelebt habe. Albertotti bemerkt ganz recht, daß diese offenkundig zur Schau getragene Vorliebe des Autors für seine Vaterstadt Florenz dem kritischen Historiker offenbar von vornherein einen Schleier vor die Augen gelegt habe. Die beiden mächtigen Konkurrenten Pisa und Florenz treten auch hier eifersüchtig auf ihren Ruhm sich gegenüber; wie der Pisaner Redi zugunsten von Pisa schreibt und den Urtext wendet und dreht, so noch mehr der Florentiner Manni zugunsten von Florenz. - - Das Werk ist in zwei Abschnitte geteilt. Der erste behandelt die Brille im Altertum. Zuerst handelt er über die uns hinlänglich bekannten Namen Ocular, Ocularium, Specillum, Perspicillum, Conspicillum usw. und führt dann weiter Aussprüche von Redi, Mercuriale1), Vossio2) u. a. an, welche beweisen, daß die Alten die Brillen nicht gekannt haben. - - Der zweite Teil handelt zuerst von den verschiedenen Sorten der Brillen. Es gibt konkave, plane und konvexe Brillen, ihr Nutzen ist bekanntlich der, das Objekt zu vergrößern, deutlich zu machen und näher heranzubringen. ..." R. Greeff, D.M. Manni : Degli ochiali da naso.

James Oglethorpe, the founder of Georgia, to settle there in 1734. By 1741 some twelve hundred Salzburgers were living in Georgia, and these volumes are both a history and a promotional work for further settlement.

In 1715 the establishment of the Naval Academy in St Petersburg intensified surveys of the Russian coast of the Baltic Sea. The design of Vasiljew island crossed by channels within the setting of a city in the Neva delta was first printed in Paris by de Fer in 1717. A similar plan is found in the various editions of Weber). This map is undated (but proper to the very first Weber edition!!), the text in the map is in German, the page indication is 432 and it has a little inset with Crohn Schlot, a curious variation of Crohn Stadt used in the earliest days of its construction under Admiral Cruys. The text is surprisningly clean and quite readaable, brownish imprints on textual portions due to aging but almost no stains, spots, book plate on pastedown and stamps of a Riga library for Eastern provincial Russian historical works..
