Rarísima obra de la que no hemos localizado ejemplares en el Catálogo Colectivo y en REBIUN. Ni Medina ni Alden citan ejemplar en bibliotecas. Pruebas para la concesión del hábito de la orden de Calatrava al Doctor Ximénez Lobatón. Su empeño de conseguir el hábito, un honor que tenían hermanos suyos y que habían disfrutado también otros antepasados, es la ocasión para reproducir una rica documentación de testamentos, bodas, bautizos y concesiones de títulos que van desde principios del siglo XVII hasta la fecha de la publicación. La mayoría de los antepasados, algunos de los cuales eran originarios de Sanlucar de Barrameda, habían tenido importantes cargos en la administración en Lima, Quito y Argentina. El mismo Ximénez Lobatón había nacido en La Plata, actual Argentina. Entre los interesantes documentos incluidos destacan los testamentos que contienen información sobre la posesión de esclavos negros, los cuales se vendían para comprar capellanías, se liberaban o ya liberados les prestaban dinero).

        REMARKS ON SEVERAL PARTS OF EUROPE, relating chiefly to their antiquities and history.

      London, H. Lintot, 1738.Collected upon the spot in several tours since the year 1723; and illustrated by upwards of forty copper plates, from original drawings; among which are the ruins of several temples, theatres, amphitheatres, triumphal arches, and other unpublish'd monuments of the Greek and Roman times, in Sicily, and the south of France. FIRST EDITION 1738, 2 volumes bound in one, complete set, this being a sequel to two volumes published in 1726 also published with the title "Remarks on several parts of Europe" and continuing "relating chiefly to the history, antiquities and geography, of those countries through which the author has travel'd; As France, the Low Countries, Lorrain, Alsatia, Germany, Savoy, Tyrol, Switzerland, Italy and Spain". The author's Preface makes it clear that this work of 1738 is a continuation in which he confines himself to describing the antiquities and monuments of Sicily, Italy and France. Several reference works erroneously describe this as a second edition of the 1726 publication. Folio, approximately 360 x 230 mm, 14¼ x 9 inches, 41 of 43 plates, 21 folding or double page, 2 PLATES LACKING FROM VOLUME II, most engraved by P. Fourdrinier, 1 by E.

Binding in poor state, worn and rubbed, missing large pieces of leather on covers with some old repairs, corners worn, hinges cracked and holding on the cords, amateur repairs to spine, 10 mm (½ inch) chipped from head of spine, paper hinges inside covers cracked, pale damp stain to lower outer corner from title page to page 89 in Volume I, diminishing in size and growing fainter, affecting a few plates, tiny piece missing from upper corner of first 3 leaves, slight browning to upper edge of title page, small brown stain on first and 5th text pages, no loss of legibility, small pale brown stain to 1 lower corner, otherwise contents clean and bright, small closed edge tear to lower margin of 2 text pages, small closed edge tear to lower margin of 1 plate, 2 to lower margin of another plate, all neatly repaired on reverse. Text block tight and firm. A good working copy of a scarce set in a poor binding. John Durant Breval (1680 / 81?1738), was the son of a French immigrant Catholic priest who settled in England around 1660, converted to Protestantism and in 1674 was appointed a prebendary of Westminster Abbey. John Breval was educated at Westminster School and at Trinity College Cambridge achieving his M.A. in 1704. After a brief spell in the army, he became a professional writer of verse and stage entertainments, finally embarking in about 1720 on a career as travelling tutor to the sons of the nobility visiting France, Italy, Spain, Germany and Switzerland. (ODNB). In the first of our two volumes he describes Sicily and the whole of Italy north and south concentrating on the antiquities and ancient monuments in the major towns and cities, including Rome, Genoa, Florence, Venice, Turin and the Lakes. In the second volume he deals with the whole country of France, not just the south as announced in his title, again describing the antiquities of Paris, Versailles, Lyons, Marseille, Dijon, Strasbourg, Avignon, Orange and many smaller places. He also makes brief excursions to places in Switzerland and Germany just over the border that he had not covered in his earlier work of 1726. Paul Fourdrinier (1698?1758), engraver and printseller born in the Netherlands the son of French Huguenot refugees, studied architectural engraving in Amsterdam under Bernard Picart and later engraved the designs for many architectural books. He settled in London in 1719 and established premises there by 1727 trading in prints, maps and stationery. (ODNB). MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST.

      London 1738 - A fine plate from Martyn's 'Historia plantarum rariorum', the first botanical book to be illustrated with colour-printed plates. A professor of botany at Cambridge and one of the founders of the London Botanical Society, John Martyn is renowned for his great work Historia Plantarum Rariorum (1728-1737). Devoted to new species cultivated at the Chelsea Physic Garden and Cambridge Botanic Garden, Pulteney proclaims this work to be "the most sumptuous and magnificent work of this kind that had ever been attempted in England". Engraved by Elisha Kirkall after paintings by artists such as Jacob van Huysum, W. Houstoun, Massey, G. Sartorys and R. Sartorius, each plate in this important publication was dedicated to a patron-subscriber with an engraved coat-of-arms or monogram. Cf. Dunthorne 194; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p. 118; cf. Henrey 1016; cf. Nissen BBI 1289; cf. Pritzel 5921; Stafleu TL2 5563. Mezzotint printed in colours and finished by hand. Engraved by Elisha Kirkall.

        Ricciardetto di Niccolo Carteromaco.

      In Parigi A spese di Francesco Pitteri Libraio Viniziano 1738 - FIRST EDITION. 2 volumes. 4to, 275 x 200 mms., pp. [ii], xxxvi, 420; [ii], 412, including half-title to volume 2 but no title-page (as issued), engraved portrait frontispiece of "Niccolo Carteromaco," title-page in red and black, with engraved vignette (by F. Zucchi after G. Ghedini), engraved head- and tail-pieces, by F. Zucchi, C. Orsolini, M. Pitteri, G. Cattini after designs by Ghedini, for each of the 30 cantos, attractively bound in contemporary vellum, red morocco labels; natural flaw in paper of frontispiece, slightly affecting portrait, slight chip to lower fore-margin of binding of volume 1, but very good to fine set, from the library of the 19th century collector George Wilbraham, and inscribed on recto of front free end-paper of both volumes, "comprato alla vendita dei libri di G. Wilbraham in Londara il 13 di Giungno 1829." Niccolò Forteguerri (1674 - 1735) lived in Rome and worked in the Vatican. An accomplished poet, he contributed to anthologies and collections, but this posthumously-published work is his greatest achievement. A slightly satiric and mock-heroic chivalric narrative in octets (ottava rima), it occasionally verges on the risque. In his 1947 book on Shelley, Newman Ivey White, maintains that a major impetus for Shelley's poem "The Witch of Atlas" was Fortegurri's Ricciardetto. [Attributes: First Edition]

Zu den Reformsatzungen der Zisterzienser der strengen Observanz zählten Fasten, Schweigen und harte körperliche Arbeit. 1678 erhielt Rancé die päpstliche Genehmigung seiner Reformen; seine polemischen Äußerungen gegen weniger asketische Orden führte jedoch zu Feindseligkeiten, insbesondere einer hitzigen Kontroverse mit Jean Mabillon. - Mit kl.

Antigua marca de propietario. * Primera edición de esta obra desmenuza la presencia de las misiones franciscanas en Asia: la conquista española, primeras exploraciones, gente y costumbres nativas, el estado religioso y una gran cantidad de información práctica sobre las islas. La detallada descripción del archipiélago y la costa eran tan precisos que se utilizaba en navegación. La obra se publicó, por partes, en un intervalo de siete años (1738 a 1744), concluyéndose con un total de tres volúmenes, resultando, sin duda, el trabajo más voluminoso impreso en las Filipinas. Nosotros ofrecemos el primer volumen, posiblemente el más insólito y curioso, cuyo tema se dedica por entero a Filipinas, impreso en papel de arroz, lo que lo hace aún más singular si cabe.

As an unauthorized edition is its not found advertised, so that the price remains uncertain, thought it was probably less than the London folios both on account of its size, and because of the cheapness of production É Its supposed scarcity seems to be the effect of neglect.""

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

      Amsterdam: Chez Herman Uytwerf, . 1738 - Two volumes. [14],370,[6]; 430,[6]pp. plus six plates (all folding) and folding map. Titlepages printed in red and black. 12mo. Contemporary calf, leather labels, raised bands, spines gilt. 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. TPL 168. LANDE 513.

        Representacion al Rey N. Señor D. Phelipe V ? dirigida al mas seguro aumento del Real Erario, y conseguir la felicidad, mayor alivio, riqueza y abundancia de su Monarquia ?.

      (Madrid?), , 1732 (i.e. 1738?). - Large woodcut initials, headpiece and tailpiece. (2 ll.), 180 pp. Folio, contemporary limp vellum (remains of ties), horizontal manuscript title on spine (faded). Some browning; small piece of blank margin torn off B2. Overall in very good to fine condition. ---- Second (?) edition of this important work on the Spanish economy, with emphasis on colonial commerce. Aguilar Piñal notes two different editions of this work?one collating 1 l., 266 pp. (in folio, though Aguilar Piñal erroneously terms it a quarto), and a folio edition collating as our copy?both with title-pages dated 1732 but without place of publication or publisher. Alden & Landis perceptively note that, in the edition we offer, the 10-year royal privilege and @fee de erratas are dated @1738, that is, the title-page date is the date of composition and not a publication date; the other edition is printed without licenses. The @Representacion was probably printed in Madrid, as that is where the @fee de erratas was issued.Zavala y Auñon suggests that the Spanish colonies be allowed to trade only with Spain, and for that purpose recommends the establishment of monopoly companies set up on the English and Dutch models (pp. 132-47). The numerous problems involved in such companies (from the nobility's dislike of trade to the likelihood that other nations will try to sabotage them) are dealt with on pp. 147-68, and the many benefits of exclusive trade on pp. 168-80. Zavala y Auñon also strongly recommends the elimination of most taxes, including @rentas provinciales, which he believes put too heavy a burden on the poorest classes, in favor of a flat tax on property and income.The @Representacion appeared again in Zavala y Auñon's @Miscelanea economico-politica, Pamplona 1749, one of the most important sources for the history of the Spanish Hacienda in the eighteenth century. Zavala y Auñon was a native of Badajoz.---- Alden & Landis 738/254: noting that the licenses are dated 1738; cf. 732/256: presumed first edition, without licenses. Palau 378415: collating as our copy, without mention of the quarto edition. Medina, @BHA 2886: the quarto edition, collating (2 ll.), 266 pp. Aguilar Piñal VIII, 4017: locating 4 copies in Spain; cf. 4016: a quarto [@sic?actually folio, measuring 32 cm.] edition: locating 11 copies in Spain and Portugal. Colmeiro Penido, @Bibliografia de los economistas españoles 404. Sabin 106282: calling for (2 ll.), 266 pp. in the copy at JCB, but only (2 ll.), 180 pp. in the Harvard copy. Salvá 3750: described as a folio, without collation, giving the date 1731; Heredia 7413, describing the same copy, gives the date 1732.

        ESSAIS SUR LA NECESSITÉ ET SUR LES MOYENS DE PLAIRE.

      1738 - Amsterdam, François Changuion, 1738. In-16 (82 X 132) veau fauve, plats ornés d'un large encadrement de triple filet doré, armes dorées au centre, dos lisse orné de filets dorés en place des nerfs, compartiements ornés aux petits fers, guirlandes dorées, pièce de titre grenat, chasses ornées, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque) ; faux-titre, frontispice, titre imprimé en rouge et noir orné d'une vignette gravée, (10) pages, (1) f. blanc, 362 pages, (1) f. d'approbation. Dos habilement refait. ÉDITION D'AMSTERDAM, imprimée chez François CHANGUION (1694-1777), libraire d'une famille huguenote de Vitry, né à Berlin, qui devint citoyen d'Amsterdam en mars 1718, et fut reçu libraire en avril 1718. Cette édition a paru à la même date que l'originale de Paris, chez Prault. Elle est également ornée d'un frontispice et d'une vignette de titre gravés. On trouve à la suite de ces "Essais" quatre contes de fées. Poète et musicien, lecteur de la reine Marie Leckzinska, académicien depuis 1733, François Auguste de MONCRIF (1687-1770) incarne à merveille le gentilhomme des Lumières : spirituel et galant, bon poète, musicien de talent, acteur, écrivain, d'un commerce et d'une lecture agréables, habile escrimeur, le type abouti du courtisan. «Bien qu'il fit le dévot, note cette méchante langue de Grimm toujours bien informée, il était homme de plaisir, et il a poussé la passion pour la table et pour la créature jusqu'à l'extrême vieillesse ». (COHEN, 771 - QUÉRARD, VI-196 - CIORANESCU, II-45890, pour l'édition de Paris, parue la même année - GUIGARD, "Nouvel armorial", II-232/233).

        Hidrologia o tratado de las aguas ferrugineas, rubras, vulgarmente dichas de la Virgen de la Cinta de Tortosa, de sus admirables

      - Imp. Joseph García, en la Plaza de Calatrava. Valencia, 1738. 15,5 cm. 3 h.,188 pág. Enc. en pergamino de época. Restauracioes en unas hojas, sin afectar el texto. Primera edición. Vicente Vinaima, doctor en medicina desde el año de 1865, era médico titular de la ciudad de Tortosa. Él descubrió las propiedades medicinales de las aguas ferrugíneas de Tortosa, y fue él quien reunió sus experiencias en esta obra Hidrologia o tratado de las aguas ferrugíneas rubras. El prólogo de la obra fue redactado por Juan Piquer, médico de Tortosa, en que presenta otros lugares de España ricos en aguas minerales de todas clases, pero elogia las de Tortosa en energia y eficacia. Vinaima explica en esta obra su descubrimiento del manantial de Tortosa, hacia 1705. Las primeras pruebas con mujeres fueron positivas, pero no pudo probarlo con otras dolencias a causa de las continuas revueltas de esa época y del asedio que sufrió la ciudad de Tortosa. Poco después vino un cirujano napolitano que cotejó esta agua con otras de igual naturaleza que había visto en Inglaterra e Italia, y las prescribió en varias dolencias. Indica en la obra todas las enfermedades en las que se puede prescribir esta agua y sus efectos positivos, y presenta casos prácticos. Cree que las sustancias que la mineralizan son azufre, algo de vitriolo de Venus, sal amoniacal y sal marina. Al final, concluye con el modo de hacer uso de este remedio y las reglas y precauciones que deben ponerse en práctica. Destacamos por nuestra parte capítulos de interés para la historia local como son el capítulo sobre la situación de los pozos donde se sacan las aguas: la Huerta de Pimpi, la huerta de Vicente Fatsini, etc. .

        Außführliche Geschicht der in dem äussersten Welt-Theil gelegenen Japonesischen Kirch.

      Augsburg, Franz Anton Ilger, 1738. - Folio (215 x 320 mm). 2 pts. in 1 vol. (24), 534, 559, (1) pp. (313-320 counted as columns). Title page printed in red and black. With 9 engr. plates. Contemp. blindstamped pigskin over wooden boards (wants clasps). First German edition of this history of the Jesuit mission in Japan, first published in 1689. Accounts of the country, its inhabitants, and their customs. The plates show costumes, buildings and scenes of martyrdom. Although the book was widely translated, the Catholic church curiously took exception to it: "Crasset's history was scarcely original, for it was drawn in great part from the work which Father Solier had issued in 1627; he merely retouched the style and continued the narrative from 1624 to 1658. The objection is made that the work lacks precision, is heavy, and is crowded with details. The author attributed the origin of the persecution of 1597 to the imprudence of the friars in making their religious ceremonies too public" (Cath. Ency. IV, 468). - Binding well-preserved. Title page and gutter near end show insignificant worming (no loss to text); slight brownstaining. From the library of the Canons Regular in Polling, Upper Bavaria, secularized in 1803 (their engr. bookplate, dated 1744); later stamp of the Bad Tölz Franciscan monastery (closed in 2008) on title page.
