        Broadside Declaring War on Spain

      London 1739 - Broadside, "His Majesty's Declaration of War Against the King of Spain," John Bassett, printer, London, October 19, 1739, 16 x 21 in., with contemporary manuscript notes and docketing, October 23, 1739. Parliament goes to war after Robert Jenkins displays his detached ear. This document launched what was known as the War of Jenkins's Ear, 1739 - 1748, which became a part of the larger War of Austrian Succession after three years. After being accused of piracy, Robert Jenkins, captain of a British merchant ship, had his ear cut off following the boarding of his vessel by the Spanish coastal guard in 1731. Jenkins then allegedly exhibited his severed ear in Parliament the next year. The broadside cites the predations of Spanish privateers in the West Indies as the cause of hostilities. A manuscript note reads "This Declaration of War was published in solemn form at the usual places in London on Tuesday 23d October 1739." Seven copies are listed in the English Short Title Catalog of the British Library.ConditionGood. Moderate wear.

        Opera varia inunum congesta. 2 Bde in 1 Bd. = De Motu Cordis et de Aneurismatibus.

      - Venice, Sanctus Pecori, 1739, Folio, XXXVI, 262 pp.; XII, 265, (25) pp., with 2 großen gefalteten Karten, 10 Kupfertafeln, Pappband d.Zt; frisches , feines Exemplar. The best, the moste complete and rarest edition of the collected works of this great Italian clinician. This rare and important collection contains: - - De Subitaneis Mortibus Libri duo. - Differtatio de Nativis, deque Adventitiis Romani Coli Qualitatibus, cui accedit Hiftoria Epidemiae Rheumaticae, quae per hyemem anni 1709. vagata eft. - De Noxiis Paludum Effluviis Libri duo. - Dissertatio Hiftorica de Bovilla Pefte, ex Campaniae fin ibus anno 1713. Latio importata, cui accedit Confilium de Equorum Epidemia, quae Romae graflata eft anno 1712. - De Recta Studiorum Medicorum ratione instituenda. - Humani Corporis Anatomica Synpfis. - De humorum secretionibus in genere, ac praecipue de bilis in hepate separatione. - An acidum ex sanguine extrahi queat. - De triplici Inteftinorum Polypo. - De Phyfiognomia. - De Sede Cogitantis animae. - De Ortu, Vegetatione, ac textura fungorum. - De Plinianae Villae Ruderibus. - Forma, ac Methodus delcribendae morborum hiftoriae. - De Motu Cordis & Aneurysmatibus. - - Lancisi laid the basis for cardiac pathology with his observation of valvular lesions and cardiac dilatation in correlation with symptoms of disease. He was the first to describe cardiac syphilis, he also notable as an epidemiologist, with clear insight into the theory of contagion. The copperplates depict the cardio-vascular system, the maps relate to the Pontine Marshes near Rome. - In 'De Motu Cordis et de Aneurysmatibus', in which the germ of many later notions can be found. For instance, Lancisi gave very clear descriptions of warthy growths on valves and of dilated and strongly pulsating cervical veins in right heart dilatation (differentiating them from the pulsations in chlorosis). It should be noted that Lancisi described also correctly the genuine arterial (in particular aortic) and caridac aneurysm, as we know it. Still more pertinent to present day cardiology was his 'De subitaneis Mortibus'. Of course the definition of sudden death was not so strict as it is now - much debated as this question has been in our own time - but it is interesting that Pope Clement XI, alarmed by a recent increase of the number unexpected deaths among prominent people in Rome, ordered Lancisi to inquire by autopsy the cause of every sudden or quickly occuring death in the years 1705 and 1706. The findings proved far from uniform and the epicrisis (Scholium) was often couched in vague terms of iatrochemical hypotheses. However, in some cases of rupture of an aortic aneurysm was found and in ohter instances an aneurym (dilatation) of the heart which probably was due to hypertension or aortitis with aortic insufficiency. In one young patient with valvular disease and a large spleen, bacterial endocarditits may have been present. - Lancisi did also important research on malaria, he pointed out that the fevers afflicting Rome and the surrounding countryside were closely related to the presence of swamps, which encouraged the multiplying of mosquitoes, By a brillant intuition Lancisi attributed the spread of the disease to these insects, and strongly advocated the draining of the swamps - unfortunately without success. - During his life he collected a personal medical library of considerable size (well over 20,000 volumes) and interest, which he generously donated to the Hospital of Santo Spirito; the library is now named for Lancisi. - - Grundlage der Pathologie der Gefässe und des Herzens! - Giovanni Maria Lancisi (1654-1720) gehört zu den großen römischen Ärzten. Er war der Leibarzt dreier Päpste. Seine klassichen Schriften behandeln die Pathologie der Herzkrankheiten, die Seuchenlehre und Tropenmedizin. Lancisi veröffentlichte 1784 die 1582 entstandenen Tafeln des Eustachius, die bis dahin vergessen in der Vatikanischen Bibliothek lagerten. - - -cf. G.M. 71, 391, . [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Though he came from a poor family of Vignola in the district of Modena, he received opportunities to devote himself to the higher studies. Having first been instructed by the Jesuits, he studied law, philosophy, and theology at the University of Modena, he plainly showed his extraordinary talents, especially in literature and history. In 1694 he was ordained priest. In 1695 Count Charles Borromeo called him to the college at the Ambrosian library in Milan, where he immediately started collecting unedited ancient writings of various kinds.

In a modern slipcase. First French edition of Behren's account of Jacob Roggeveen's 1721-22 Pacific voyage.

This French translation was based on the Frankfurt and Leipzig editions of 1737. 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. "Roggewein's is the first certified account of contact with Easter Island and its great stone images, as well as the last of the great Dutch circumnavigations" (Cox).

Some peripheral wear, front pastedown with damage from removal of a bookplate, else near fine. In absolutely remarkable condition for a book in the later years of its third century.

The "woman of intellect and letters but of unpleasant character" thereafter stood the test of time - most copies of this novel which survive are from an 1885 re-issue, more than 160 years after she originally penned it. The Oxford Companion of French Literature calls this title "an indifferent historical novel in which the simple narrative of Froissart is tricked out with episodes of modern gallantry." Sniff.

        Verses on the Death of Doctor Swift. Written by Himself: Nov. 1731

      London: Printed by C. Bathurst, at the Middle-Temple-Gate in Fleet-street, 1739 - First edition of Swift's poem, which, to cite the heading of p. [3], was occasioned by a maxim of La Rochefoucauld: "Dans l'adversité de nos meilleurs amis nous trouvons quelque chose, qui ne nous deplaist pas." [In the troubles of our dearesr friends, we find something which is not altogether displeasing]. On the authority of Dr. William King, to whose oversight Swift entrusted the publication, all three of the first London editions were much abridged and purged of verses King deemed offensive to royalty and religion; in addition, King inlcluded 61 lines from "The Life and Genuine Character" of 1733. The Dublin edition of the same year, published by Faulkner, was much more inclusive, and is recognized as the most definitive First edition of the text as edilted by Dr. King. Folio.

Large 4to, orig. boards (some minor foxing & browning, a little waterstaining in Vol. II). Leyden: S. Luchtmans, 1739. First edition in French of one of the best 18th-century introductions to Newtonian physics. This is a book filled with interesting experiments and problems. Some of the subjects covered are gravity, mechanics, machinery, elasticity, electricity, capillarity, hydraulics, optics (with a long account of vision and the eye), celestial mechanics, comets, and the weather system. Musschenbroek (1692-1761), professor of natural philosophy and mathematics at Utrecht and, later, professor of experimental physics at Leyden, was one of the most celebrated physicists and most important investigators of his time. The experiments described in his books have become classics in elementary instruction. "Underlying Musschenbroek&#39;s lectures demonstrated with experiments was the experimental philosophy...the principal source of inspiration was Newton, but Galileo, Torricelli, Huygens, Reaumur, and others were important to this school."-D.S.B., IX, p. 596.

        MANUSCRIPT BRITISH ROYAL COMMISSION ON VELLUM APPOINTING ROBERT DINWIDDIE AS INSPECTOR GENERAL OF CUSTOMS FOR THE COLONIES OF BARBADOS AND THE LEEWARD ISLANDS].

      London. March 29, . 1739 - Original manuscript document on vellum, 13 3/4 x 16 3/4 inches. Embossed paper seal of the British Customs Commissioners Office affixed to the left margin on the recto; and three small, blue, paper tax stamps (totaling 18 pence) affixed to the upper margin on the recto. Small paper seal of King George II affixed to the verso. Old folds. Lightly soiled. Very good. Matted. This manuscript British royal commission appoints Robert Dinwiddie to the position of inspector general of Customs for the Colonies of Barbados and the Leeward Islands. It was issued near the beginning of a long career as a colonial administrator that saw Dinwiddie ardently root out financial corruption in the British colonies in the Caribbean, and would eventually culminate in Dinwiddie's appointment as lieutenant governor of Virginia. As Virginia's acting governor, he would play a crucial role on the colonial frontier in the early years of the French and Indian War. Dinwiddie came from a family of traders and merchants, and in 1727 he was made collector of customs for Bermuda. In 1738 his purview was expanded, and he was appointed surveyor- general of the Royal Customs for the Southern Part of America, which included the Bahamas, Jamaica, and the American colonies from Pennsylvania southward. The present commission was issued just a year later, and appoints Dinwiddie as inspector general of duties for Barbados and the Leeward Islands, including investigating the "Dutys of Four and a half percent payable to His Majesty." Dinwiddie had uncovered customs frauds in Barbados and the Leeward Islands in 1738, and this commission officially invests him with powers "for examining into the behavior and conduct of the Surveyor General, the Collectors, the Comptrollers, Searchers, and all other officers, clerks and persons appointed or employ'd in the managing charging or collecting the said Dutys according to such orders and instructions as we have already or shall hereafter give to the said Dinwiddie for that purpose." In this office he would charge several customs officials, including Edward Lascelles, with false entries, fraudulent sales, and corruption, and dismiss them from office. Dinwiddie was praised and criticized for his activities in Barbados, and the royal customs commissioners later characterized his work as proceeding with "more zeal than prudence" (see ANB). Dinwiddie's greatest fame in the American colonies came with his appointment as lieutenant governor (and de facto acting governor) of Virginia. In 1753 he sent George Washington to push French commissioners south of the Great Lakes to abdicate lands claimed by Virginia. Dinwiddie's demand and the French rejection of it was one of the precipitating factors in the French and Indian War, and he was a significant early patron of George Washington's military career. The present customs appointment is signed in manuscript by Lord Thomas Fairfax (1693- 1781), proprietor of the Northern Neck of Virginia, as well as three of his colleagues in the Customs Commissioners Office, including John Evelyn, R. Corbet, and one other. Descended by his mother of the Culpeper family, which had for generations been intimately involved with Virginia affairs, Fairfax played an active role in the colony's frontier development, first venturing there in 1735 and then permanently residing in Virginia from 1747 until his death in 1781. In 1754, at the request of Gov. Dinwiddie, Fairfax assumed duties as a lieutenant in Virginia's frontier militia. The DAB says of Dinwiddie: "His career as colonial administrator was marked by vision, strength, attention to detail, and untiring energy. As the man who precipitated the struggle which brought about the downfall of New France, he is a figure of first importance in the early history of the American continent." Dinwiddie: DAB V, pp.316-17. ANB 6, pp.620-21.

        Der Zuschauer. Aus dem Englischen übersetzt. Erster und Zweyter Theil.

      Leipzig, Bernhard Christoph Breitkopf, 1739 - 1740.. 9 Bl., 400 S., 4 Bl., 418 S., 6 Bl. Ganzpergamentband der Zeit mit goldgeprägtem Rückentitel und dreiseitigem Rotschnitt. Titelseiten mit größerer Titelvignette, Stücke mit zahlreichen Textvignetten. Erste deutsche Übersetzung der englischen Tageszeitung "The Spectator", die vom 1. März 1711 (in der Übersetzung irrtümlich datiert auf 1. März 1710) an erschien und von dem Politiker und Journalisten Joseph Addison (1672 - 1719) und dem Schriftsteller und Komödienautor Richard Steele (1672 - 1729) herausgegeben wurde. Der vorliegende Band um faßt die Teile 1 und 2 mit den Ausgaben 1 bis 168 der Zeitung, die in insgesamt 555 Ausgaben erschien. Der "Spectator" trug maßgeblich zur Schaffung eines öffentlichen bürgerlichen Bewußtseins bei und leistete damit einen wesentlichen Beitrag zur Frühaufklärung. In einer Auflage von nur 3000 Exemplaren gedruckt, erreichte die Zeitung doch schätzungsweise ein Publikum von 60.000 Lesern. Parteipolitisch vorgeblich neutral, unterstützte sie doch eindeutig die Positionen der liberalen Whigs gegenüber den konservativen Tories. Der frühliberal-aufklärerische Geist des Blattes inspirierte - etwas zeitversetzt - inspirierte den freigeistigen Literaturtheoretiker Johann Christoph Gottsched (1700 - 1766) und - im besonderen - seine erste Ehefrau, die Schriftstellerin Luise Adelgunde Victorie Gottsched ("Gottschedin") zu ihrer Übersetzung ins Deutsche. Beide Bände mit ausführlichem Register.. (Leeres) Vortitelblatt mit Teilausriß, die ersten 3 Blatt der Vorrede mit Eckabriß mit minimalem Textverlust, ferner die Seiten 21 bis 26 mit Eckabriß mit teilweisem Textverlust. Sonst sehr gutes Exemplar dieser ersten beiden Bände des Übersetzungswerkes; Seiten sauber und allenfalls partiell geringfügig fleckig. Weitere Fotos auf der Homepage des Antiquariats (bitte Art.-Nr. auf der Angebotsseite in das Suchfeld eingeben).
