        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. * 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the system of modern public international law, based on the concept of "droit naturel," a morality-based law that superseded the personalities of individuals or nations.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.

        Das veränderte Russland. three teile in one volume

      Frankfurt: Foster & Sohne, 1738. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Three books in one volume, 8vo, 490pps, 247pps, 243pps, German text (occasional Latin), contemporary full leather w/front detached, folding plans (St Petersburg, and the Tsarist empire) 25 plates, maps, headpiece devices, portrait (Tsar Peter),Title page printed in red& black; folding map (Moll: Grande Russie, after Perry); Russland , includes Lorenz Langes: voyage to Beijing ; Muller, J B: Leben der Ostiaken , description of Saint Petersburg (with the folding map) ; The map of St Peterburg is early, rare and important. According to Bagrow the first map of the area where St Petersburg would rise was mapped by Gossler in 1703. In 1713 Tsar Peter decided to move the Russian capital there. 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..

Edition réalisée par Johannes Arntzenius et reprenant les commentaires de François Juret, Juste Lipse, Jan Gruterus, Petrus Faber, Jan Lievens, ainsi que les préfaces et discours des éditions précédentes.  Le panégyrique de Trajan fut prononcé le 1er septembre ou octobre 100 ; il était en effet de tradition de produire un discours lorsqu'on était nommé Consul. C'est le seul exemple de ce type de discours qui reste du haut empire romain. Avant d'être édité par l'auteur lui-même ce dernier l'a complètement remanié et augmenté considérablement. Edition abondamment commentée en bas de page. Le panégyrique de Tracatus, lequel fut professeur de rhétorique à Bordeaux au IVe siècle, est un éloge de l'empereur Théodose, à l'occasion de sa victoire sur l'usurpateur Maxime. c'est un document d'importance sur l'ascension au trône de Theodose, son parcours militaire et sa politique. L'édition a de même été réalisée par Johannes Arntzenius avec les mêmes commentateurs.

        The History of the Conquest of Mexico by the Spaniards

      London: Printed for T Woodward, 1738 2 volumes. x+479 pages with foldout frontispiece portrait of Hernan Cortez, four foldout plates and two fold out maps. xii+475+[1 ad] pages with two foldout plates. Octavo (8 1/2" x 5 1/2") bound in original full leather with with gilt fillet borders on covers, the spine in six compartments separated by six raised bands, black morocco gilt lettering piece in one and the rest gilt-ruled (Field 1465, Sabin 86490, Palau: VI 530) First octavo edition.Originally published in Spanish in 1684, the first English edition was published in 1724.In 1661 Antonio de Solis was appointed to succeed Antonio de León Pinelo as chronicler of the Indies. He was a native of Alcalá and had studied classics, philosophy, and laws there and in Salamanca. He served as secretary to the Conde de Oropesa and, after 1654, as Oficial of the first Secretariat of State. His writings prior to his appointment as chronicler were of a literary nature, principally dramatic and poetic. His work as chronicler showed the influence of his literary background. He at first intended to write a continuation of Herrera?s Historia. In preparing himself for this he found a prejudice in the works of foreigners and his own nation that he decided to rewrite the story of the conquest of Mexico, which he found most in need of revision. His work, therefore, was affected by two elements which damaged its historical value: his desire to write a well-balanced literary work and his determination to defend the Spanish national honor. The result of his labors was his Historia de la conquista de México, población y progreso de la Amérique Septentrional conocida con el nombre Nueva España, which appeared in 1684. The actual content of the work does not come up to the indications of the title. Solís was able to complete only the first part, which told the history of the conquest of Mexico, 1519-1521. He was working on the continuation of the work when he died in Madrid in 1686. Solis? Historia has been called a poem without verse, as it is written in epic style, with a great central hero and with the facts selected according to the needs of the story. It became the first standard literary version of the Conquest until Prescott?s history and other later works. It went through numerous Spanish editions and was translated in the major European tongues.... A lengthy study of Solís and his history, by Luis A. Arocena, saw publication in Buenos Aires in 1963. (Handbook of Middle American Indians, Volume 13 )Condition:Book plate to front paste down, previous owner's name on front end papers, skillfully rebacked, corners bumped with some chipping to some else a very nice set.

        [Manuscript] Breve Relación de los Señores de la Nueva España

      Mexico City, 1738. Folio, 30.5 x 21.5 cm, 150 unnumbered leaves (300 pp), manuscript in very clear scribal hand, with scattered contemporary, i.e. 18th century, notes in the margins. This artefact has a long and fascinating history. Zorita (ca 1512 - 1585) was a judge or oidor for Philip II, who spent some 19 years in the New World, the last 10 years in the Audiencia de Nueva Espana, ie. Mexico. His views of the abuses that the encomendero system was inflicting on the native populations were similar to those of Bartolome de las Casas, and like him was a staunch defender of the rights of the "Indios" against the rapacity of the land-ownign Spaniards, the encomenderos. This made him many enemies, who constantly harassed him, but he was well respected for his probity. The latter was proved by his retirement, returning to his native Spain virtually broke. He reported this to the King, and made numerous suggestions on how to improve the condition of the natives, mostly through alleviation of their requirement to pay taxes and having to serve as virtual slaves to their encomenderos. None of his suggestions was followed,and his report to the king became buried in the files of the Archive of the Indies, unpublished in its day and probably never seen by the king. This unpublished royal report was called the Breve Relacion de los Senores de Nueva Espana and portrays Indian life both before the conquest -- perhaps in too halcyon terms -- and afterwards, the latter from his own first hand observation. It was written after he had returned from Mexico to Granada, Spain, probably around 1570. The original report wound up back in Mexico in the hands of the great Mexican polymath Siguenza y Gongora, and after his death, went into the library at the Jesuit seminary/ convent of SS Pedro y Pablo in Mexico City. Still unpublished, several references were made of it in various chronicles of the period, eg. Vetancurt and Clavigero: Torquemada mentions a notable incident with involved the Indians. Zorita was greatly esteemed by the religious orders because of his pro-Indian stance. It was there at the seminary of SS Peter and Paul that Lorenzo Boturini, an Italian traveller who became obsessed with Mexico and formed a remarkable collection of artefacts, found the mss in 1738 and, recognizing its importance, had several copies made; he also mentions it in his book "Idea de una nueva Historia .... This is one of those copies. There are Boturini copies in the New York Public Library and the Bibliotheque Nacional in Paris; the location of the original is apparently unknown. The book was not published until the 19th century, first in a French translation of little value and from a defective Boturini copy, then in 1891 in the Spanish from a copy by the well-known Mexican bibliophile Icazbalceta. The Diccionario Porrua says of Zorita's book:"Como fuente de primera mano es indispensable," an opinion in which every scholar seems to concur. This copy collates perfectly with the authoritative Cabañas edition, but with the annotations and the final leaf which identifies it as a copy made (sacó) by Senor Boturini in November 1738 from the original found in the library of the Jesuit college mentioned above; and that a certain Lic. Pensado had noted that he had seen the book in 1683; and further that the original must have come from Spain where the author kept "cogiendo y anadiendo" to it. Bound in contemporary limp vellum, with title material on spine in ink; original ties still present. Paper is fresh, script is very clear and legible. Insignificant worming to a few preliminary leaves in upper left corner. Both binding and text are in fine condition.

Meanwhile, as a by product of the interest in Hebraic studies by Christian (mainly Protestant) theologians, a number of local histories by more or less well informed Christian scholars appeared in the 18th century, before any similar work by a Jew made its appearance: e.g. Anglia Judaica by D'Blossiers Tovey (Oxford, 1738); . .[Cecil Roth] EJ: Volume 15, column 1291: TOVEY, D'BLOISSIERS (1692 1745), English clergyman. He wrote the first comprehensive history of the Jews of England, ANGLIA. Though concentrating on the medieval period, the work contains a section on the resettlement and on the English Jews of his own day. It shows appreciation of the magnitude of royal exploitation of the Jews in the Middle Ages and a healthy skepticism of ritual murder charges. it is largely based on the Short Demurrer (1656) of William Prynne.

John Churchill, 1. Duke of Marlborough, Fürst von Mindelheim, KG, PC (* 26. Mai 1650 in Ashe, Devonshire; &#134; 16. Juni 1722 in Cranbourn Lodge) war englischer Feldherr im Spanischen Erbfolgekrieg und der erste Duke of Marlborough. Mit 15 Jahren diente er als Page beim Duke of York, dem späteren König Jakob II. Seine militärische Laufbahn begann mit dem Eintritt in die Garde im Jahre 1667. Fünf Jahre später wurde er bereits zum Captain befördert und nach dem Krieg gegen die Niederlande avancierte er 1674 zum Oberst. Das Militärhandwerk erlernte er unter dem französischen Feldherrn Turenne. 1677 heiratete er Sarah Jennings, die eine enge Freundin der späteren Königin Anne war. Von 1685 bis 1692 war er der dritte Gouverneur der Hudson&#146;s Bay Company. Die Niederschlagung der Monmouth-Rebellion erlebte er aktiv und wurde 1685 zum Generalmajor befördert. Churchill erklärte Wilhelm III. von Oranien seine Loyalität und dieser erhob ihn zum Earl of Marlborough. Da Churchill Kontakte zu König Jakob II. unterhielt, folgte die unvermeidliche Ungnade Wilhelms 1692 bis 1698. Zeitweilig musste er sich im Tower von London aufhalten. Erst Prinzessin Anne, die 1702 Königin wurde, protegierte ihn und machte ihn zum Oberbefehlshaber der englischen Truppen im Spanischen Erbfolgekrieg von 1701 bis 1713. Die Eroberung von Kaiserswerth 1702 brachte ihm die Standeserhöhung zum Duke ein, 1704 siegte er mit Prinz Eugen von Savoyen in der Schlacht von Höchstädt (engl. Battle of Blenheim) sowie 1706 bei Ramillies und 1709 bei Malplaquet über die Franzosen. Im Jahr 1705 wurde ihm vom deutschen Kaiser für seine Dienste im spanischen Erbfolgekrieg die Herrschaft über das neugeschaffene Fürstentum Mindelheim übergeben. 1714 fiel Mindelheim wieder zurück an die bayerische Herrschaft. Der Schlacht von Höchstädt voraus ging Churchills militärgeschichtlich bedeutsamer Marsch von der niederländischen Grenze an die Donau. Die Masse der Truppen beider Kriegsparteien stand zuvor beiderseits der holländischen Grenze in einer Pattsituation, während eine starke französisch-bayerische Armee Wien, die Hauptstadt des mit den Niederlanden und England verbündeten Kaisers, bedrohte. Indem Churchill die Verteidigung der Niederlande fast völlig entblößte, mit der Masse des Heeres zunächst den Rhein entlang nach Süden zog und durch geschicktes Manövrieren den französischen Gegner lange Zeit im Unklaren [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Rare compilation of early French editions. "The Mercure de France of 1 June 1738 compared Cupis favourably with his contemporaries, predicting that his playing would unite the tenderness and feeling of Leclair with the fire and brilliance of Guignon. Rameau named a movement of his fifth concert (1741) after him. Cupis contributed to the evolution of violin playing through his use of 8th position, fourth-finger extensions and new bowing methods with extended phrases on single bow strokes. His violin sonatas (with one exception) each contain four movements, a slow movement followed by three faster ones. The allegro movements are characteristically monothematic and careful attention to dynamic nuance is evident throughout. The first sonata of op.2 contains the famous ‘menuet de CupisÂ’ praised by DÂ’Aquin de Château-Lyon (1753)." Julie-Anne Sadie in Grove Music Online. "Veracini... dedicated a set of 12 solo sonatas to Prince Elector Friedrich August of Saxony. Though knowing that a violinist was not needed at the Dresden court... the prince persuaded his father to retain Veracini... Veracini travelled to Dresden where he was transferred from the princeÂ’s private employment to the regular court payroll on 20 November 1717. His salary was equal to HeinichenÂ’s, VolumierÂ’s and Johann SchmidtÂ’s, and far exceeded those of the other composers, J.G. Pisendel, Christian Pezold and J.D. Zelenka. In February 1719 Veracini was entrusted with hiring more singers for the court while he was in Bologna and Venice. He returned to Dresden where he remained until 1722, when on 13 August he leapt from a third-storey window in a fit of madness brought on by too much application to music and reading of alchemy, according to Mattheson. VeraciniÂ’s treatise hints that there was a plot against his life inspired by jealousy, however... The op. 1 sonatas of 1721 are... contrapuntal, perhaps owing to the influence of the German composers at Dresden, from whom he certainly got the idea of beginning a suite of dances with a French overture (unheard of in Italian solo sonatas)." John Walter Hill in Grove Music Online. The Meyer collection, formed over a period of some 75 years, was one of the most important collections of printed music, musical autographs, and books on music of the 20th century
