        Asia secundum legitimas Projectionis Steriographicae regulas.

      Artist: Homann Erben (d) ; issued in: Nuremberg; date: (d)1744 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 47,5 x 52,5; - description: Map shows total Asia with partly Europe; - vita of the artist: Johann Babtiste Homann (1664-1724) was born in Oberkammlach, the Electorate of Bavaria. Although educated at a Jesuit school, and preparing for an ecclesiastical career, he eventually converted to Protestantism and from 1687 worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house.Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as a recommendation for potential customers.In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt (Grand Atlas of all the World). Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, who also published Siebmachers Wappenbuch.Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, which was in business until 1848. The company was known as Homann Erben, Homanniani Heredes, or Heritiers de Homann abroad.

The series of 14 plates, each showing one of the stages as well as characters portraying a scene from a particular play, were published between 1787 and 1794 by the Amsterdam publisher Jan Willem Smit. Most of the prints contain a border, printed from a different plate, showing parts of an audience and the theatre. Versions without the border, such as the current series, which "could be included with the theatrical plays" (Amsterdam) were also available.With the paper somewhat worn at the edges, all plates with a few spots and smudges in the margins, "Het gotisch paleis" with several large smudges and "De kerker" with a small spot in the lower right of the image.

        1744 The Christian Pattern; The Imitation of Jesus Christ - Thomas Kempis

      - London: Printed 1744. Germantown: Re-Printed by Christopher Sowr, 1749, 1749. First American edition of this book of Christian mystical thought, which has historically appealed to Catholics and Protestants alike. Indeed, it has been "the most widely read devotional manual apart from the Bible, perhaps even surpassing the influence of such books as Pilgrim's Progress and St. Augustine's Confessiones - this is at least partly due to the great simplicity of its style and its freedom from intellectualism or theological dogmatism." - PMM. "The Christian Pattern" was the title used both by John Wesley in 1735, and by George Stanhope, dean of Canterbury in 1698, for their versions. Although rhymes taken from the work had been published in Germantown in 1742 under the title of "Das Kleine ABC", this is the first American edition of the work, as adapted by a "Female Hand" which has yet to be identified First American edition [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Volume 4 contains the Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems (Dialogo sopra i due massimi sistemi del mondo), first published in 1632. Despite taking care to adhere to the Inquisition's 1616 instructions, the claims in the book favouring Copernican theory and a non Geocentric model of the solar system led to Galileo being tried and banned on publication. Despite the ban, Galileo published his Discourses and Mathematical Demonstrations Relating to Two New Sciences (Discorsi e Dimostrazioni Matematiche, intorno a due nuove scienze) in 1638 in Holland, outside the jurisdiction of the Inquisition. "- Nice, only very little browning, few light stains in few margins, little marginal worming not touching the text. Endpapers renewed. Mostly very crisp, uncut and wide-margined.

        De jure naturae et gentium, libri octo. Cum integris commentariis virorum clarissimorum Jo. Nicolai Hertii, atque Joannis Barbeyraci. Accedit Eris scandica. Recensuit et animadversionibus illustravit Gottfridus Mascovius.Francofurti et Lipsiae, ex officina Knochiana, 1744.

      Francofurti et Lipsiae, ex officina Knochiana 1744 - Tre parti (con autonomi frontespizi) in due volumi di cm. 25,5, pp. (4) xxxix (1), 854; (2) 500 (28), 372 (4). Graziosa vignetta ai frontespizi bicromi e ritratto dell"Autore inciso in rame su tavola f.t. Bella legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida con titoli ms. al dorso a 6 nervi; filetti e fregi impressi a secco ai piatti. Piccole mende limitate alle estremità dei piatti (del tutto integri) dovute al ritirarsi del riporto interno della pergamena. Fioriture e bruniture dovute alla qualità della carta, peraltro esemplare ben conservato. Samuel von Pufendorf (1632-1694), filosofo e giurista tedesco, si formò tra Lipsia e Jena. Il"De iure naturae et gentium", considerato il suo capolavoro,è espressione di un pensiero razionalista che si caratterizza per il realismo tagliente e per il rigore logico. Fornì infatti un contributo decisivo alla risistemazione del patrimonio etico e dottrinale della scuola giusnaturalista e determinò un forte influsso, ancora in pieno Settecento, sulla cultura giuridica europea. Questa edizione, con i commentari di Jean Barbeyrac, diede un impulso nuovo alla circolazione di quest"opera fondamentale nel Settecento. Il secondo volume raccoglie, con autonomo frontespizio, un"altra opera pufendorfiana " Eris scandica, qua adversus libros de iure naturali et gentium obiecta diluuntur".

Miss Rhedon" et mention manuscrite "Collegii Rhedonensis Soc." à la page de titre. Rares rousseurs. Veau brun d'époque, dos à nerfs ornés de caissons à fleurons et fers dorés, étoiles dorées formant un cercle au premier plat avec un trou en son centre (ancien système ?) ainsi qu'un filet et roulette d'encadrement dorés, tranches rouges. Coiffe sup. arasée, charnière fendue au 1er plat et mors fendus au second, coins usés. Azevedo (Ignace D'), jésuite missionnaire, né à Porto, en 1527, d'une des plus illustres familles du Portugal, alla prêcher l'Evangile au Brésil et obtint, dit-on, de merveilleux résultats. De retour en Europe, il choisit et emmena pour une nouvelle mission trente-neuf jeunes jésuites espagnols et portugais. Le vaisseau que montait la pieuse légion fut attaqué en mer par Jacques Sourie, de La Rochelle, vice-amiral de la reine de Navarre, et fougueux calviniste. Le capitaine portugais, après un combat très vif, fut obligé de se rendre. Jacques Sourie épargna l'équipage, mais fit massacrer tous les jésuites, pour venger trois de ses matelots qui, en essayant de monter à l'abordage, avaient été pris et décapités par les Portugais. Cette exécution causa une grande sensation en Europe. Jacques Courtois, dit le Bourguignon, en fit le sujet d'un tableau. Azevedo a été canonisé par Pie V. Première édition de ce rare ouvrage contenant une très intéressante relation du séjour au Brésil de Azevedo. Chadenat I, 754. Larousse.

        A SERMON PREACH'D IN NEW-ARK, JUNE 12. 1744. AT THE ORDINATION OF MR. DAVID BRAINERD, A MISSIONARY AMONG THE INDIANS UPON THE BORDERS OF THE PROVINCES OF NEW-YORK, NEW-JERSEY, AND PENNSYLVANIA.... WITH AN APPENDIX, TOUCHING THE INDIAN AFFAIRS

      Boston: Rogers and Fowle, 1744. [1],iv,39pp. Later plain wrappers. Light dampstaining and scattered foxing. Very good. A very rare pamphlet relating to the missionary work of David Brainerd amongst the Indians in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania in the mid-18th century. Ebenezer Pemberton was a prominent Boston-born minister. He served as minister of New York's First Presbyterian Church from 1726 through 1753, during which time he also served as a member of the New Jersey Board of the Society in Scotland for Propagating Christian Knowledge. This society, an Anglican missionary organization, was founded to establish schools and promote the faith in "uncivilized" parts of the Scottish Highlands and among the American Indians in the colonies. The organization hired missionaries in the colonies including David Brainerd who was approved for missionary work in November 1742. Shortly thereafter, Brainerd began his work proselytizing to American Indians in Pennsylvania, New York, and especially in New Jersey where his ministry proved most fruitful. Following his ordination in 1744 at which Pemberton delivered this sermon, Brainerd continued to work and live among the American Indians. He preached to tribes in Kaunaumeek (a settlement in the woods between Stockbridge and Albany), and then at present day Easton, Pennsylvania, and also at Crosweeksung (now Crosswicks, New Jersey). Expelled from Yale for sympathizing with the Whitefield revival and for remarking that a college tutor had "no more grace than this chair," Brainerd was nevertheless successful as a missionary to various Indian tribes in the Massachusetts- New York border region and in New Jersey. He died at the age of twenty-nine in the home of Jonathan Edwards, whose daughter he was engaged to marry. With the publication of his journal and biographies detailing his life, Brainerd became a popular and influential figure among leading Christians and missionaries. Perhaps because of its connection to the short and inspirational life of Brainerd, the sermon printed here became one of Pemberton's most famous. The appendix, which contains "a short Account of the Endeavours....to introduce the Gospel among the I Indians upon borders of New-York," is actually written by Brainerd, in the form of a letter to Pemberton. In it he describes in detail the year he spent in northern New York in 1743-44, and his endeavors as a minister. One of the earliest accounts of Brainerd's missonary work, and quite rare on the market. ESTC W3138. EVANS 5471. HOWES P190. SABIN 59608.
