        Breviarium Monasticum Pauli V. ac Urbani VIII. Summorum Pontificium auctoritate recognitum, pro omnibus sub regula SS.mi P. Benedicti militantibus, in quo sunt omni studio disposita Officia Sanctorum, ut nihil amplius desiderandum ... (Truncated)

      Venetiis, Ex Typographia Balleoniana, 1744Full Book Title: Breviarium Monasticum Pauli V. ac Urbani VIII. Summorum Pontificium auctoritate recognitum, pro omnibus sub regula SS.mi P. Benedicti militantibus, in quo sunt omni studio disposita Officia Sanctorum, ut nihil amplius desiderandum supersit.In quattuor Anni Tempora divisum. In 4 volumes A Benedictine breviary, each of its four volumes being devoted to one season of the Church's liturgical year. Each volume in full maroon calf, richly stamped in gilt, in the ornate design known as `fan' design. The spines are raised in compartments, decorated in gilt, marbled endpapers; two of the volumes have two ornate brass clasps each, and two have one each. All the edges are gilt. Printed in red and black, with engraved plates. Both text and bindings in very good condition The binding seems contemporary with publication.However there are a number of pages from a later date inserted into the text, e.g. a 24 page revision of 1863 for the Feast on 8 December of the Immaculate Conception.It seems likely/possible that the four volumes were disbound at that time and rebound in the same bindings with the revised texts inserted.One of the insertions is dated 1751, so that it seems likely that the first binding was not done till then.Also interleaved throughout the text are a number of small engraved sheets, containing images of saints and prayers (i.e. in modern parlance, 'holy cards').The text on some of these is Portuguese and on one it is German.Hence the book was a working breviary and very likely used outside Italy, its country of origin. Quantity Available: 1. Category: RELIGION BINDING; Inventory No: 220999.

F7 a cancel," but does not mention that this is the first appearance of the poem, "A True Tale," addressed to Mr. Leake, i. e., James Leake, the brother-in-law of the printer Samuel Richardson who printed editions two to seven. "A True Tale" appears here as a result of a proposal of marriage that Mrs. Chandler received in 1741 when she was 54.

SHEWING THE BENEFIT TO BE MADE BY SETTLING COLONIES, AND OPENING A TRADE IN THESE PARTS: WHEREBY THE FRENCH WILL BE DEPRIVED IN A GREAT MEASURE OF THEIR TRAFFICK IN FURS, AND THE COMMUNICATION BETWEEN CANADA AND MISSISSIPPI BE CUT OFF: WITH AN ABSTRACT OF CAPTAIN MIDDLETON'S JOURNAL, AND OBSERVATIONS UPON HIS BEHAVIOUR DURING HIS VOYAGE AND SINCE HIS RETURN...THE WHOLE INTENDED TO SHOW THE GREAT PROBABILITY OF A NORTH-WEST PASSAGE

      London: Printed by J. Robinson, 1744.. [2],ii,211pp. plus folding engraved map "A New Map of Part of North America." Quarto. Handsome 20th-century panelled calf, elaborately gilt spine, leather label, raised bands. Fold lines of map expertly backed with tissue, with some small areas of unobtrusive paper repair. Titlepage with short horizontal tear to the outer margin, not affecting text. A few short marginal tears to text, with one repaired tear at F2. Overall, a very good copy. A large paper copy of this important attack on the Hudson's Bay Company monopoly in the Americas, with a valuable early account of the search for a northwest passage. Dobbs, later colonial governor of North Carolina, was an active opponent of the monopoly of the Hudson's Bay Company, pointing out that if they did not alter their policies, the French would quickly occupy the central plains to the west of their traditional areas of influence (as, in fact, they did). This and other works on a similar theme by Dobbs led to the investigation of the monopoly by a British Parliamentary committee in 1749. Dobbs never saw the Bay, and his information was largely based on French publications and Canadian sources, particularly that of Métis trader Joseph La France. According to Peter C. Newman, the account of La France's exploits is this work's "most valuable historical contribution" (EMPIRE OF THE SUN, [2000], p.213). The second main thrust of Dobbs' narrative concerns his advocacy of the necessity of searching for a northwest passage: he gives an account of the early exploration of the area, and of the opportunities that further exploration would offer. In addition, he fires the opening broadside in his attack on Christopher Middleton for his leadership of the 1741-42 expedition in search of a northwest passage. This controversy, played out in print, lasted for more than three years. FIELD 433. HOWES D373, "b." KERSHAW 422. LANDE 1144. NMM 796. PEEL 8. SABIN 20404. TPL 193. STREETER SALE 3637.

        Memoires pour servir a l'histoire d'un genere de Polypes d'Eau Douce, a bras en forme de cornes.

      . Leiden, J. & H. Verbeej, 1744, 4°, XVI, 324 pp., 1 leaf "Avis au Relieur", illustrated with 4 large vignettes by J.v.Schley after C.Pronck, with 13 full page engraved plates by Piere Lyonnet, fine contemp. gold tooled half leather binding.. BIRTH OF EXPERIMENTAL BIOLOGY - FIRST EDITION on fine paper, fresh and crisp - Abraham Trembley (1710-1784), Scientist, Philosopher and Pioneer of Experimental Zoology from Geneva, discovered the regenerative powers of the polyp and photosensitivity in an animal without eyes and he was the first to witness cell-division anddiscovered Hydra. - Trembley was the first person to show that certain animals can be artificially multiplied by Division, the first to make permanent grafts on animal tissues, the first to prove by rigorous experiment that asexual reproduction by budding occurs in animals, and the first to witness cell-division: he also discovered the process by which Protozoa multiply. These are only a few of his contributions to biological knowledge. A large part of his research was concerned with the little fresh-water polyp, hydra, an animal of particular importance today because it is one of the standard "types" used all over the world in teaching elementary biology to students of science, medicine, and agriculture. At the time of publication, the immediate philosophical repercussions were even more startling, animal soul was clearly shown to be material. The heterogenetic origin of life seemed to be confirmed. Bonnet suggested that the polyp bridged the animal and vegetable kingdoms, nullifying their supposedly complete separation. Later he declared the polyp to be the key to the interpretation of nature. - Baker, Abraham Trembley (the only full length account), pp. VIII ff.; Forerunners of Darwin, 1959, pp. 116 ff.; Nissen 4163; Wolf, History of Science II, 466; Dobell, Leeuwenhoek; Shirley A.

These jurists, who followed Cujas' example, were leaders of the French humanistic school, which aimed to purge Roman sources of later corruptions. Their pioneering methods did much to establish the field of philology.

After its rediscovery during the medieval era it became a staple of European legal education. Not in the British Museum Catalogue.

[12],xvi,[4],984; [10],1056,[22, Index and List of Plates]pp. plus sixty-one engraved maps and plates (including twenty-two maps, fifteen folding, and thirty-nine full-page plates). Royal privilege as frontispiece in volume one; engraved frontispiece in volume two. Folio. 20th-century polished calf, gilt, leather labels. Minor rubbing to boards, light occasional foxing, a few leaves roughly opened, else in very good condition. Second, and best edition, considerably expanded from the first edition of 1705. This highly regarded work contains the first separate map of Australia, and one of the the first maps to focus on Georgia and the southeast United States, along with valuable cartography on the Northwest Passage, North and South America, the Arctic regions, and more. A voluminous assemblage of the best accounts of world travel. "The second edition, especially prized for its maps, has been called the most complete by several authorities. Particularly valuable is the inclusion of a printing of Tasman's original map and two short articles printed on the map. One discusses Quiros's voyage, while the other speculates about the possibility of the Australian continent being colonized: 'Whoever perfectly discovers and settles it will become infallibly possessed of territories as rich and fruitful and as capable of improvement as any that have hitherto been found.' To the original extensive collection are added accounts of voyages completed since the first publication: Christopher Middleton to Hudson's Bay, 1741-42; Bering to the Northeast, 1725-26; Woodes Rogers's circumnavigation, 1708-11; Clipperton and Shelvocke's circumnavigation, 1719-22; Roggeveen to the Pacific, 1721-33; and the various travels of Lord Anson, 1740-44" -Hill.

        Collection of 10 pamphlets relating to the controversy concerning the battle of Toulon.]

      London: various publishers, 1744-5 - 10 octavo pamphlets, all uncut, most unopened, sewn in original wraps as issued. Housed in a black cloth solander box. Wraps a little tattered in some case, one upper wrap detached, and two lacking, but overall very good indeed. 4 folding maps and a folding table to the first item. First editions. An interesting selection of publications offering insight into this perfect exemplar of the eighteenth-century naval controversy, questions of ship-handling, the interpretation of signals, and personality clashes, all overlaid by matters of patronage. "Lestock's name will always be connected with the battle of Toulon (11 February 1744). By adhering to a restrictive interpretation of the fighting instructions and declining to take any initiatives he contributed to a monumental naval failure" (ODNB). Lestock and his direct superior Admiral Thomas Mathews had had previous contretemps, and in the aftermath of the battle, a virulent pamphlet war flared with Lestock throwing "blame on various captains not in his division and especially on Mathews, whom he charged publicly." Public opinion was against Lestock, but Admiral Byng's "interest" ensured that a parliamentary enquiry, and subsequent court martial were managed in Lestock's favour, "There is every sign that the exoneration of Lestock was arranged. The court, in fact, carried it to an extreme, for in every way conceivable the members found no possible fault in Lestock's conduct. Subsequently, the same court cashiered Mathews The public was not convinced. As a naval historian writing in 1758 observed, the 'nation could not be persuaded that the vice-admiral ought to be exculpated for not fighting' and the admiral cashiered for fighting (Barrow, The Naval History of Great Britain)." The ten pamphlets are as follow; [Mathews], A Narrative of the Proceedings of His Majesty's Fleet in the Mediterranean (1744); Original Letters and Papers between Adm--------l M---------ws, and V. Adm-------l L---------k (1744); Admiral Matthews's Account of the Action in the Mediterranean (1745); Vice-Admal Lestock's Recapitulation (1745); Admiral Mathews's Charge against Vice-Admiral Lestock Dissected and Confuted (1745); Ad------l M------ws's Conduct In the Late Engagement Vindicated (1745); An Impartial Review of the Conduct of the Admirals M---ws and L----k (1745); Minutes taken at a Court-Martial assembled On Board His Majesty's Ship Torbay (1745); Appendix to the minutes taken at a Court-Martial (1745); Captain Opie's Appeal against the Illegal Proceedings of Vice-Admiral Mathews (1745) [Attributes: First Edition]

VERY RARE. Piatti foderati con carta coeva (qualche leggera strofinatura). Tagli spruzzati in rosso. All'interno in ottime condizioni di conservazione e con ampi margini. Prima edizione veneziana stampata da Giuseppe Corona curata dal noto benedettino giansenista originario di Saint-Clais (Maine), Gerberon Gabriel pubblicate per la prima volta a Parigi nel 1675. Frontespizio del primo volume in rosso e nero, numerosissimi testatine, finalini e iniziali xilografici. Testo in colonne doppie. Celebre e monumentale raccolta del pensiero del celebre padre della Chiesa Cattolica S. Anselmo di Canterbury (1033-1109) nato a Aosta, in Piemonte. Dopo aver studiato in Borgogna e in Francia, entrò nell'ordine benedettino. Divenne arcivescovo di Canterbury nel 1093 carica che ricoprì fino alla morte. Teologo e filosofo molto ammirato è considerato fra i padri della scolastica ed è conosciuto per la sua tesi ontologica dell'esistenza di Dio, dimostrata nel suo Proslogion (1077-1078). Si schierò fortemente contro l'anti-intellettualismo, insistendo sul fatto che l'analisi razionale della fede cristiana non conduce necessariamente allo scetticismo. Al contrario, credeva che lo studio intelligente avrebbe portato ad una migliore comprensione della fede rendendola più forte. Fu canonizzato nel 1494 e nominato Dottore della Chiesa nel 1726. Doctor magnificus, come viene anche chiamato, scrisse numerose opere. L'opera più famosa del periodo inglese (terminata, però in esilio in Italia, sull'eremo benedettino di Villa degli Schiavi, l'antica Villa Sclavia, oggi Liberi in Provincia di Caserta) fu il Cur Deus homo (Perché un Dio-uomo?). Anselmo ci ha lasciato anche un'ampia raccolta di Preghiere e di Meditazioni, nonché un nutrito Epistolario, qui presentato, nel quale sono raccolte anche numerose lettere dirette ai suoi discepoli per i quali il Santo fu sempre una figura di riferimento estremamente attenta e gentile. Questa edizione veneziana estremamente curata contiene anche la Vita di Sant'Anselmo. Questa edizione è considerata fra le più corrette e complete mai stampate delle opere del celebre Santo. Ottimo esemplare. Very Good. VERY RARE.
