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.

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

To which is prefix'd, an exact account of the said Turpin, from his first coming into Yorkshire, to the time of his being committed prisoner to York Castle; communicated by Mr. Appleton of Beverly, Clerk of the Peace for the East-Riding of the said County. With a copy of a letter which Turpin received from his father, while under sentence of death. To which is added, his behaviour at the place of execution, on Saturday the 7th of April, 1739. Together with the whole confession he made to the hangman at the gallows; wherein he acknowledg'd himself guilty of the facts for which he suffer'd, own'd the murder of Mr. Thompson's servant on Epping-Forest, and gave a particular account of several robberies which he had committed.

        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..

        Histoire de L'Expédition de Trois Vaisseaux. Envoyés par la Compagnie des Indes Occidentales des Provinces-Unies, aux Terres Australes en MDCCXXI...

      The Hague: Aux depens de la Compagnie, 1739. Two volumes, small octavo; in contemporary mottled calf. Rare account of the Roggeveen voyage, one of the most important of the Dutch voyages, ranking with those of Le Maire, Schouten and Tasman. It set out to rediscover the part of Terra Australis which Quiros had led the exploring world to believe existed, but in fact added substantially to the Dutch record of Polynesian discoveries, with Easter Island and Samoa described here for the first time. There were altogether three contemporary narrative versions of the voyage, in Dutch, French and German: all are rare. This first French - and generally preferred - edition of Behrens's account was based on the 1737 German version, and very likely translated by Behrens himself, who travelled under Roggeveen as commander of marines, though some authorities have attributed the translation to De Brosses.Roggeveen crossed the Pacific from the east at the head of a three-vessel expedition with largely commercial objects. He specifically sought the fabled continent of Terra Australis, which the English privateer Captain Edward Davis claimed to have sighted in 1680. It did not materialise, but on April 5th 1722 Roggeveen landed at the previously uncharted island which he christened l'isle de Paques (Easter Island). They were the first recorded European visitors to the island and the detailed description of the inhabitants, their extraordinary idols and their way of life is of great value. The expedition later went on to discover some of the outer islands of the Samoan group.Although Roggeveen's voyage failed in its primary objective it provided strong motivation for the authorities who sent Captain Cook out on his first voyage forty-six years later. "Sunday 13th (March 1774). In stretching in for the land we discovered people and those Monuments or Idols mentioned by the Authors of Roggeveen Voyage which left us no room to doubt but it was Easter Island" (Cook's Journal of the Resolution & Adventure, Beaglehole II p.338).This attractive copy originally belonged to John Montagu, Duke of Montagu (c.1688-1749), Governor of St. Lucia and St. Vincent. Each volume of this set has Montagu's library shelf-ticket to the front endpaper, with his crest gilt stamped upon petite crimson morocco spine labels. On his death his residence, Montagu House, was acquired by the Government to house the newly-established British Museum. Joints a bit worn but still quite firm, overall a fine set.

        Les vies des hommes illustres de la France depuis le commencement de la Monarchie jusqu'à présent

      1739. A Amsterdam - Paris chez Knapen, 1739 - 1775. 26 volumes In-12 reliés plein veau de l'époque, dos à nerfs très ornés, pièces de titre et de tomaison, tranches rouges. Des accrocs ou petits manques en tête et en queue, des mors fragilisés, le corps des volumes est en bon état, quelques brunissures sans gravité. Chaque volume de 400 à 700 pages. Notre ensemble comprend 26 volumes mais nous notons que le tome XXVI porte la tomaison de XXVII en dos de la reliure, sans mention en page de titre contrairement à tous les autres volumes. Ce tome est la Vie de Jérôme Bignon, avocat Général et Conseiller d'Etat par l' Abbé Perau, en deux parties, bien présentes. Chaque volume est revétu de l'ex-libris armorié du Baron de Ville d'Avray, Premier Valet de Chambre du Roi et Intendant du Garde Meuble et des joyaux de la Couronne. Il fut aussi le premier Maire de Versailles. Il fut assassiné à la prison de l'Abbaye en 1792, lors des massacres de septembre, ou il était emprisonné car soupçonné de détournement d'une partie des joyaux de la Couronne. Nous notons que les armes de la commune de Ville d'Avray sont celles du Baron Marc Antoine Thierry de Ville d'Avray que nous retrouvons bien sur chacun des volumes de cette série ici proposée. (d'azur au chevron d'argent, accompagné en chef de deux tours d'or et en pointe d'un lion de même lampassé de gueule). Malgré les défauts signalés, rare ensemble, provenance non dénuée d'intéret.

A complete and thorough treatment of world mythology, including notes on the Chaldean Mysteries, Hindu traditions and Native American religions, though inevitably concentrating on the Greek and Roman myths. Banier's working principle that all traditional stories had a foundation in historical fact found general acceptance until the mid nineteenth century, and may now again be considered with some credence in the wake of recent research proving the great antiquity of common fairy tales.

        Histoire de l'expedition de trois vaisseaux... aux Terres Australes

      The Hague: la Compagnie, 1739. Two volumes bound in one, small octavo, both titles in red and black, bound with both half-titles; contemporary blind-embossed vellum, manuscript label on spine. A handsome copy of Roggeveen's voyage into the Pacific. Behrens' scarce narrative tells the story of one of the most significant of the Dutch voyages, ranking with those of Le Maire, Schouten and Tasman. Roggeveen set out to rediscover the part of Terra Australis which Quiros had led the exploring world to believe existed, but in fact added substantially to the Dutch record of Polynesian discoveries, with Easter Island and Samoa described here for the first time.Roggeveen crossed the Pacific from the east at the head of a three-vessel expedition with largely commercial objectives. He specifically sought the fabled continent of Terra Australis, which the English privateer Captain Edward Davis claimed to have sighted in 1680. It did not materialise, but on 5 April 1722 Roggeveen landed at a previously uncharted island which he named Easter Island. They were the first recorded European visitors to the island and the detailed description of the inhabitants, their extraordinary idols and their way of life is of great value. The expedition later went on to discover some of the outer islands of the Samoan group. Because he had sailed for the Dutch West India Company Roggeveen was temporarily imprisoned by the powerful Dutch East India Company in Batavia, but later released to complete 'one of the last of the great Dutch circumnavigations' (Howgego).Apart from a conspicuously rare pamphlet published in 1727, and the equally rare Dutch Tweejaarige reyze rondom de wereld of 1728, this was the first major notice of this important voyage, not only a substantial Pacific voyage in its own right, but one which provided a direct stimulus for the search for the Southern Continent. Behrens' account of the Roggeveen voyage was originally published in German in 1737, but this first French edition is generally preferred. It was likely translated and amended by Behrens himself, who travelled under Roggeveen as commander of marines, though some authorities have attributed the translation to De Brosses.Although Roggeveen's voyage failed in its primary objective, it represented an important achievement in terms of its own discoveries. The Behrens account had some effect on subsequent voyages, including providing strong motivation for the authorities who sent Captain Cook out on his first voyage forty-six years later. 'Sunday 13th (March 1774). In stretching in for the land we discovered people and those Moniments or Idols mentioned by the Authors of Roggeweins Voyage which left us no room to doubt but it was Easter Island... ' (Beaglehole, Journals of Captain James Cook, II, p. 338). In fine condition.

When Napoleon conquered the southern Low Countries (territories of the Austrian Habsburgs) in 1794 Ghent became the capital of one of the new departements, which each had a central school with a library, botanical garden and other facilities for study. With an owner's inscription. In very good condition. The binding is slightly rubbed and the head of the backstrip chipped and repaired, but still in good condition. An interesting record of botanical scholarship in Napoleonic Ghent.

The provenance, going back through time is indicated by the bookplates of a recent FRS, of John Hallifax, displaying his arms as granted in 1788 and finally the pioneer inventor and mill-owner Jedediah Strutt who partnered Richard Arkwright in the world's first water-powered cotton mill in Cromford,Derbyshire, which still largely survives as a shell, and later set up giant mills of his own in Belper and Milford, sadly almost completely lost in the carpet demolition of the 60's. His small ornate-lettered "Jedh. Strutt" bookplate is attached to the top corner of each front pastedown.

[8], ccli, 708; [4], 709-1669pp. Paris: Briasson, 1739. 390 x 250 mm. Blind-stamped vellum ca. 1739, leather spine labels, vellum on spines cracked and peeling with some loss in Vol. 2, light soiling. Occasional faint foxing but very good. Bookplate of the Ramsgate Monastery in each volume. $ First Edition of the first continent-wide union catalogue of manuscripts, compiled by Bernard de Montfaucon, a scholar and Benedictine monk best known for founding the discipline of paleography with his Palaeographia Graeca (1708; see Printing and the Mind of Man 175). The 1669-page Bibliotheca bibliothecarum catalogued all the manuscript libraries in France and Italy with which Montfaucon was familiar, as well as a few in Germany, the Netherlands and England. Its emphasis was on medieval and Renaissance texts. Montfaucon began with a list of all the libraries, institutional and private, for which he published holdings. These included the well-known collections and those of medieval monasteries such as Bobbio, Corbie and Fulda, as well as lesser-known monastic libraries. This was followed by a 250-page index of authors and codices, and then with a list of the manuscript contents of libraries by country beginning with Italy and the Vatican Library. The work ended with another 160-page index of authors and “rerum” (things). The comprehensive indices make it possible to locate manuscript texts by author and subject. As such it remains the most useful tool for checking the distribution of manuscript texts in European libraries, and their survival in institutions up to the first third of the eighteenth century. $3750
