        Manuscript Deed for the Sale of A Negro Girl in Connecticut in 1739

      13 September 1739., New London, Connecticut, - Small folio sheet (1 pp.), docketed on the reverse. Quite browned and aged, with some staining, tears along folds, bottom portion of document that was separated from the rest has been slightly repaired with archival tape, torn at folds, a little creasing, a couple of small holes and minor niches at edges, a few words are affected by splits, but most can be made out. This document records the sale of a girl owned by Matthew Steward of New London to Joseph Stanton of Stonington. The girl was called Deborah, and she was about 12 years old. The transaction was concluded for 110 pounds, or about $550.While this slave sale takes place somewhat early in Conneticut colonial history, it clearly shows that slavery wasn't limited to the south.

        Provincia Mexicana apud Indos Ordinis Carmelitarum Discalceatorum sub Titulo S. Alberti Erecta anno 1588

      Roma 1739 - Rarissima carta topografica dell'area del Messico centrale, estesa a nord-ovest fino a Guadalaxara, e a sud-est ad Atequera, con l'indicazione dei conventi carmelitani, incisa da Domenico Franceschini. L'area raffigurata è corrispondente alla provincia istituita nel 1588 dalla Congregazione spagnola dell'Ordine dei Carmelitani Scalzi ed intitolata a Sant' Alberto la cui immagine sormonta il cartiglio con il titolo. La mappa venne pubblicata nell'opera Provinciarum et Conventuum Fratum, ac monalium Discalceatorum Ordinis B Virginis Mariae de monte Carmelo Congregationis Hispaniae Corographica Topographica, et Chronologica Descriptio" edita a Roma nel 1739. Sulla carta i gradi delle sedi - patriarcale, arcivescovile, episcopale - sono indicati per mezzo di conventi (riconoscibili perché sormontati dalla croce) di grandezza diversa, il cui significato è chiarito sul secondo frontespizio dell'opera. Margini graduati, scala espressa in leghe spagnole - Scala Leucarum Hispaniae (40 miglia =4,5 cm), l'orografia è rappresentata con il disegno delle montagne dal profilo ombreggiato; è riportata anche l'idrografia, con l'indicazione dei nomi dei corsi d'acqua. Nel margine inferiore, due rubriche, una alfabetica e l'altra numerica, con i riferimenti rispettivamente ai Conventi dei Frati (Conventus Fratrum) e a quelli monache carmelitane (conventus Monalium). Tre piccoli cartigli con Guatemala, l'isola di Cuba e parte del Peru. Incisione in rame, completa dei margini bianchi, lievi e sporadiche fioriture, un foto di tarlo nel margine bianco superiore, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. A very rare map of central area of Mexico, with Carmelite convents, engraved by Domenico Franceschini. The map shows the province established in 1588 by the Spanish Congregation of the Order of Discalced Carmelites and dedicated to Sant 'Alberto, whose image surmounts the cartouche with the title. In 1588, the Congregation was divided in six provinces plus Mexico (Castilla la Vieja, Castilla la Nueva, Andalucia la Alta, Andalucia la Baja, Aragon and Portugal). Then, the Order expanded throughout Europe and the congregations of Portugal and Italy were created but the three congregations remained independent from each other. The map is part of the work Provinciarum et Conventuum Fratum, ac monalium Discalceatorum Ordinis B Virginis Mariae de monte Carmelo Congregationis Hispaniae Corographica Topographica, et Chronologica Descriptio" edited in Rome in 1739. Graduated borders, scale in the Spanish miles - Scala Leucarum Hispaniae (40 miles = 4.5 cm), the topography is represented with the design of the mountains from the shaded profile; It is also reported the hydrography, indicating the names of the waterways. In the lower margin, alphabetical and numerical legends respectively, with the references to the Convents of Friars (Conventus Fratrum) and those Carmelite nuns (conventus monalium). Copperplate, with margins, a small wormhole in the upper margins, light foxing, otherwise perfect condition. Dimensioni 245 183mm

        The Tryal of a Cause for Criminal Conversation, Between Theophilus.

      1739 - A Notable to Profit from Adultery [Trial]. Cibber, Theophilus [1703-1758], Plaintiff. The Tryal of a Cause for Criminal Conversation, Between Theophilus Cibber, Gent. Plaintiff, And William Sloper, Esq; Defendant. London: Printed for T. Trott, 1739. 32 pp. Octavo (7-3/4" x 4-3/4"). Stab-stitched pamphlet bound into nineteenth-century three-quarter calf over cloth, gilt title to spine. Moderate rubbing to extremities with some wear to spine ends and corners, front hinge cracked, hinges starting, bookplate residue to front pastedown, early bookseller description tipped-in to front free endpaper. Light soiling to title page and verso of p. 32. Moderate toning to text, minor stains and smudges to a few leaves. * Only edition, one of two issues, both from 1739. The Cibber trial, which involved two well-known actors, was a sensational event because it appears that Cibber pushed his wife toward adultery in a scheme to make money from her affair. William Sloper was a frequent visitor to the Cibber's country home, having been asked by Mr. Cibber to teach his wife backgammon while he pursued his interest in hunting. There were reports that the Cibbers and Mr. Sloper lived together and that a door connected Mr. Sloper and Mrs. Cibber's bedrooms. It appears that Mr. Cibber had already "borrowed" ?400.00 from Mr. Sloper and that matters might have continued in a similar manner, with Mrs. Cibber serving as a kept woman procured by her husband. However, Mrs. Cibber detested the situation because she fell in love with Mr. Sloper. She ran off with him, but Mr. Cibber brought her back by force and confined her. She was rescued by her brother and returned to Mr. Sloper. Though ruling in his favor, the jury was convinced that Mr. Cibber had instigated the affair and awarded him ?10.00 instead of the ?5,000.00 he sought. The other issue of this pamphlet is identical except for a title-page statement reading "Price Six Pence."

Exemplar com assinatura de posse coeva na folha de rosto: D Miguel Lopes de Sá [?] 6º edição da segunda tradução latina, a melhor, de uma obra essencial para estudar o desenvolvimento da física, a mais completa de todas e com a melhor tradução latina. Caracterizou-se pelo grande valor dado à experimentação. Em 1692 foi adoptada como livro de texto nas Universidades de Cambridge e Oxford. Trabalho publicado pela primeira vez em francês, em 1671, tendo sido depois traduzido para latim em 1674 e para inglês em 1723. Contando desde a 1ª edição em língua francesa esta é a 11ª vez que a obra apareceu em público. Em 1697 Samuel Clarke traduziu a obra para um latim de elevada qualidade, de que dá exemplos no prefácio e foi nas sucessivas edições adicionando notas que não só explicavam o texto como o corrigiam com as ideias baseadas nos trabalhos de Newton. Foi a mais divulgada e influente obra do período de 1671 a 1746, que começou por ser uma exposição da física cartesiana mas com as anotações de Samuel Clarke, e a preocupação deste cientista em actualizar a obra, tornou-a gradualmente num dos textos mais importantes para a difusão do newtonianismo. Jaques Rohault (Amiens 1618- Paris 1672) filósofo, físico e matemático, discípulo e continuador de René Descartes, foi considerado o mais original de todos por Leibnitz. Samuel Clarke (1675-1729) formou-se em Oxford em 1694 com uma tese em defesa da filosofia natural de Newton, publicou diversos tratados científicos, escreveu uma tradução da Ilíada e tinha muito interesse pela teologia.

        An attempt to explain the oeconomy of the human frame, upon the principles of the new philosophy. (bound with) The use of reason recovered by the data in Christianity. Part II

      James Brettenham; George Straham, London 1739 - Separate title pages for each book. Contemporary calf, double gilt fillet covers, spine in gilt with morocco label, shelf mark stamped in gilt at head of spine. Covers lightly rubbed, interior with sprinkled margins, an excellent copy from the library of The Earl of Portsmouth with his armorial bookplate on front paste-down. First edition of an anonymously published work by Hutchinson, exceedingly rare with only 4 known copies (3 in the UK and the Yale copy in America). Hutchinson was not a physician, but interested in the activities of medical men, including the so called quack practitioners. He cites physicians that do not look to the patients symptoms and only guess what diseases they might carry. He here writes on the human frame (skeleton), describing his positions about numerous subjects, such as the motion of bodies in fluid, the quality of matter placed in the stomach and of the juices secreted into it out of the blood, the circulation of blood in animals, a description of the ducts for secreting, and the glands for collecting juices out of the blood, the state of the operations in a healthy person, the effects of too much heat and too much cold, the use of purges, diuretics, cupping and scarifying, blistering, smoking, or chewing tobacco and snuff, and his observations and comparisons between the effects of eating fresh fruits, greens, etc.Hutchinson (1674-1737) was born at Spennithorne, near Middleham, Yorkshire. He was privately educated to be a land steward when in 1700 he met John Woodward, the Duke of Somerset's physician and became interested through him in natural philosophy. He collected fossils and made observations for Woodward, who apparently was to have written an account of the creation and demonstrate the error of Newtonian concepts. Woodward used his fossils but never wrote his treatise. Therefore, Hutchinson produced his own alternative account that rejected Newtonianism because it conflicted with revelation, especially on vacuum and gravitation. What was surprising was that his alternative natural philosophy drew attention and persisted throughout the eighteenth and into the nineteenth century, winning him many disciples. He continued with a major interest in the geological theories by Thomas Burnet and Woodward, stoking the flames of a controversy as to the relations between geology and the book of Genesis.

Com [xliv], 112, [ii] págs. Encadernação da época inteira de pele, com nervos na lombada, título gravado a ouro sobre rótulo vermelho e casas profusamente decoradas com motivos vegetalistas gravados a ouro. Corte das folhas carminado. Com leves danos na lombada junto das coifas. Folhas preliminares sem numeração incluem: Dedicatória impressa em itálico, Lectori (ao leitor) censuras e aprovações de D.

As duas páginas finais sem numeração contêm erratas e uma página em branco com arabesco manuscrito em tinta coeva. Texto impresso em belos e nítidos caracteres redondos sobre papel de excelente qualidade muito sonante. Exemplar com Ex-libris de Fernando Barros, com o nº 1411, colado no interior da pasta anterior e assinatura de posse na folha de rosto: «Miguel Osorio. Lisboa». Primeira e única edição, raríssima, não tendo aparecido à venda nenhum exemplar desde há muitos anos. Não incluída nos principais catálogos de livrarias e leilões. Azevedo e Samodães e Inocêncio têm a colação errada. Cabral do Nascimento no seu estudo e antologia «Poemas narrativos portugueses» não refere esta obra. Poema épico em latim narrando o célebre feito da vitória alcançada no socorro e levantamento do cerco à cidade de Diu na Índia, em 1546, pelo Vice Rei D. João de Castro. Esta grande vitória militar garantiu a estabilidade das possessões portuguesas na Índia até 1961 e tornou-se um feito mítico narrado e celebrado por inúmeros poetas e escritores entre eles Diogo de Teive, Damião de Góis, Jacinto Freire de Andrade ou D. José Barbosa. D. João de Castro foi uma das mais notáveis figuras do Século XVI em Portugal, distinguindo-se como cientista, navegador, combatente, vice-rei da Índia e escritor. Valiosa peça bibliográfica pela grande raridade, beleza da impressão, qualidade dos materiais, importância histórica do feito cantado pelo poeta e pela qualidade literária. Seria desejável um estudo e tradução de obra poética tão importante e relevante. In 8º (big) Dim.: 21.5x16.7 cm.

José Pereira de Santa Ana, Diogo Barbosa Machado [the only in Portuguese] and licenses. The 112 numbered pages contain the Latin poem, written in hexameter [a metrical line of verse consisting of six feet], divided in five books, each with a summary in prose. The two final pages, also unnumbered, contain errata and a blank page with a handwritten arabesque in contemporary ink. Text printed in a very clear and beautiful font on excellent sound paper. Copy with an Ex-libris of Fernando Barros, numbered 1411, glued inside the front board and ownership title on the front page: «Miguel Osorio. Lisboa». First and only edition, very rare, that it isn?t seen on the market for many years. It is not included in the catalogues of bookshops or auction houses. Azevedo, Samodães and Inocêncio have the wrong collation. Cabral do Nascimento in his study and anthology ?Poemas narrativos portugueses? doesn?t mention this work. Latin epic poem, telling the story of the victory at Diu in India in 1546 by the Vice-Roy D. João de Castro. This huge military victory assured the stability of the Portuguese poss

        An Impartial Account

      London - Printed and Sold by the Booksellers in Town and Country, 1739 Book. Good. Hardcover. A fascinating and unusual work on the Inquisition. This work deals in particular with the Inquisitions of Spain Portugal and Italy. There are details of specific cases of the Inquisition, including the 'trial and sufferings of Mr Isaac Martin who was put into the inquisition in Spain with an account of his deliverance', 'Description of the Inquisition of Granada', 'The Prosecution of the famous Molinos, his condemnation, imprisonment and death', 'an abstract of the travels and sufferings of Mr William Lithgow, a Scotsman' and accounts of other cruelties used in the inquisition'. From the antiquarian library of Christopher Rowe. Christopher Rowe was a schoolmaster in Norwich and then in Bristol. Throughout his career he inspired many to love literature, history and music. He was a specialist on 17th century printer and bookseller, Humphres Moseley and began his, unfortunately unfinished, PhD dissertation on him. With a frontispiece and three plates. A very scarce work, with only two referenced by the ESTC, one held at Canterbury Cathedral Archives and the other at University of Pennsylvania Van Pelt-Dietrich. This work was collated using the 1738 edition, which is the only fully available copy. The 1738 edition has the same pagination and head and tail pieces as this 1739 edition. Appears to be lacking plate titled 'A Heretick Convict before Judgement habit-ed in the San benito, which is to face page 240 to the 1738 edition. Lacking final leaf of text to the 'supplement to the foregoing discourse' as well as the binder's instructions. It would appear these pages have beenlost from the textblock. The Inquisition was a group of institutions within the governing system of the Catholic Church first formed during the 12th century. The aim of the Inquisition was to combat heresy. During the Renaissance the Inquisition significantly expanded in response to the Protestant Reformation. Condition: In a full calf binding with gilt stamping to the boards and spine. Externally, worn, particularly to the spine. Loss to the joint sand to the head and tail of spine. Heavy rubbing to boards and extremities. Hinges are tender with the cords showing. Prior owner's bookplate to front pastedown, Christopher Rowe. Internally, generally firmly bound though strained in places. Pages are age toned, particularly to edges. Marks to pages and light spotting throughout. Some minor chipping to page edges. Closed tear to title page and some loss at gutter. Overall: GOOD..
