        EL REY. POR QUANTO HAVIENDOSE RECONOCIDO LOS PERJUICIOS, INCONVENIENTES, Y LITIGIOS, QUE SE OFRECEN EN LOS CABILDOS DE LAS CIUDADES DE LAS INDIAS...[caption title]

      [Madrid. 1738].. 3pp. Folio. Dbd. Maltese cross printed at head of title. Accomplished in manuscript at Aranjuez, Spain on April 11, 1738, signed by Miguel de Villanueva. Manuscript inscription on verso of last printed page written on Nov. 14, 1738 in Santiago de Chile. Contemporary annotation on first page, light dampstaining in margins. A very good copy. A rare proclamation by Philip V, King of Spain, declaring that major lieutenants (Alfereces Mayores) of the cities, towns, and villages of Peru are to be recognized over the unpaid local judges (los Alcaldes) of the Holy Brotherhood (Santa Hermandad). Numerous local brotherhoods had served as municipal peacekeeping organizations in Spain since the Middle Ages. 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.

        A letter to the Right Rev. Dr. Warren, on his conduct as Bishop of Bangor:

      by Shôn Gwialan.A minor but interesting piece by David Williams (1738-1816), the political and religious theorist and founder of the Literary Fund, using the pseudonym "Shôn Gwialan", written at the behest of Thomas Williams (1737-1802), the wealthy Welsh copper magnate and industrialist.The letter relates not only to Bishop Warren's general administration of the diocese (the clergy "a set of base, ungrateful wretches"), but also to the Bishop's personal behaviour over the forcible ejection from his office of Samuel Grindley, the Deputy Registrar, which had resulted in the Bishop's criminal prosecution. Williams points out that in France 18 Archbishops, 118 bishops, 11,850 canons, 3000 superiors of convents (&c.) have been massacred or expelled. Bishop Warren should take notice.* The ms notes read:"An electioneering squib supposed to have been written by Dd Williams author of the History of Monmouthshire at the request of the late Mr Williams of Llanidan Anglesey because the Bishop's good wishes were for Lord Penrhyn & against the Anglesey interest. Lord Penrhyn & Sir Robt Williams Bart. were the two candidates".For a good commentary of the Parliamentary constituency of Caernarvonshire, the election of June 1796, and the Bishop of Bangor's support for Richard Pennant, Lord Penrhyn, see, e.g. R.G.

        The Tryal of John Peter Zenger, of New-York, Printer, Who Was Lately Try'd and Acquitted for Printing and a Libel Against the Government. [Bound with]: Remarks on the Trial of John Peter Zenger ?

      London: J. Wilford, behind the Chapter-House, St. Paul's Church-Yard, 1738. Third edition. [2], 32; iv, 27pp. 4to. Modern red half morocco and cloth, spine gilt, uncut. Very minor soiling. Near fine. The third London edition of the transcript of Zenger's famous trial, one of four London editions of that year, issued two years after the New York first edition.  Zenger was put on trial for satirical remarks made in his newspaper about the Governor of New York.  His trial is usually considered to be the first case involving freedom of the press in America.  The REMARKS... provide an account of the Zenger trial and its repercussions concerning British law, by two lawyers who evidently felt conviction would have been more appropriate.  "Zenger's acquittal received wide attention in Europe for its revolutionary aspects, which apparently raised popular interest.  These remarks, supposedly by two eminent American lawyers, disparage Andrew Hamilton's 'wild and idle Harangue' that won Zenger's release" - Streeter.

        Two unidentified small wash drawings

      N.p., 1738. Each signed, possibly in anoher hand, lower left, in ink, "Gravelot". 1 vols. 9.3 x 7.4 cm. The two matted together and framed. Both drawing slightly toned, but very good. The first illustration, of a Monkey addressing a Lion and a Wolf, is almost certainly from Gravelot's English period (1733-1746) and could well be a preliminary sketch for Gay's FABLES; yet the second drawing, depicting a female figure driving a chariot, displays an allegorical style reminiscent in style and theme to his illustratons for ICONOLOGIE PAR FIGURES (ca. 1789).

The peculiar practices (i.e., "liberties") of the American Congregational churches that he discusses and defends include the right to ordain their ministers, the right of the congregation to select its ministers, the right to send Elders as emissaries and representatives, the right to remove Elders and pastors, the right to withhold communion from "disqualified" individuals, the right to deal with transgressors in private, the right of holding synods, and the right to increase the number of members and churches. At the time of this publication, Mather (1706?-85), the son of Cotton Mather, was pastor of Second Church in Boston. This is his second substantial publication, the first having been the biography of his father. => This was attractively printed with some care, incorporating some attractive head- and tailpieces.

        Histoire des guerres d'Italie

      New edition. Although other editions have been given in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, it is not only the most beautiful edition of this text, but also the best translation by Favre, reviewed by Gorgeons and others .. Full speckled antique glazed calf. Back tooled raised florets in 4 boxes. Part of title in red morocco. Caps head leveled. Tail headdress of Volume II threadbare. Wormholes and a gallery on the upper flat of Volume I. A flap of skin torn on upper cover of Volume III of 3 cm. Corners bumped. Of the three title pages, two rectangles of paper were pasted formerly of both sides, under the title, thus masking a previous owner. History of the wars of Italy begins in 1490 and ends in 1534; Guicciardini worked there for 27 years, and his work, in the opinion of critics of his time is valuable and of great merit, even though it was criticized its violence would greatly praised his impartiality; this work did much to modernize methods in history. Ambassador, writer and politician of Florence, friend Machiavelli, Guicciardini is part of the pantheon of great men of Florence.

At the time of this publication, Mather (1706–85), the son of Cotton Mather, was pastor of Second Church in Boston. This is his second substantial publication, the first having been the biography of his father. => This was attractively printed with some care, incorporating some attractive head- and tailpieces. Later 18th-century full calf with gilt double-rule border to each cover, same double rule above and below each spine band, and a neat gilt-tooled spine label; board edges blind-tooled with a roll. Binding solid but a bit scuffed; interior clean and tight.

        Discours sur la Parallaxe de la Lune, pour perfectionner la Theorie de la Lune et celle de la Terre.Paris: de l'Imprimerie Royale, 1741. First edition.

      "This quite rare work is a sequel to Maupertuis' much better known <i>La figure de la terre</i> (1738). Here Maupertuis develops a method for compensating his observations for lunar parallax, and applies it to the revision of his own measurement of the degree, as well as those of Picard and others, confirming more accurately than before the figure of the earth predicted by Newton. In addition Maupertuis reports his measurements of the variation in the force of gravity at different points on the earth's surface using Graham's pendulum. As Maupertuis points out in the long preface, parallax corrections are important not only for geography and navigation, by the correct measurement of the degree, but for perfecting the theory of the moon and lunar tables, which he believed, as Halley did, would solve the longitude problem."
