        Memoires secrets pour servir a l'histoire de Perse.

      Aux depens de la Compagnie 1745 - - Aux depens de la Compagnie, A Amsterdam 1745, Pet. in 8, relié. - Edition originale, assez rare. Page de titre en rouge et noir. Demi basane rouge fin XVIIIe. Dos à nerfs décoré de filets maigres et gras. Pièce de titre de maroquin brun. Coiffe inférieure manquante, et manque d'une bande de cuir le long du mors supérieur. Frottements. Une mouillure brune au centre des feuillets 144-145. Roman à clefs satirique sur la période de la Régence qui suivit la mort de Louis XIV et les premières années du règne de Louis XV. Sous l'appellation fausse de Mémoires, il s'agit d'un récit oriental, narrant tous les événements en France et en Europe depuis la mort de Louis XIV, les noms réels étant dissimulés derrière les noms orientaux. On y verra pour la première fois retracer l'histoire du masque de fer. L'ouvrage eut un tel retentissement que même des années plus tard, les familles impliquées exigèrent du gouvernement sous la Restauration sa mise à l'index. L'auteur fut, il va de soit, embastillé lors de la publication. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Secunda impression, revista, y aumentada por su mismo autor, y dividida en dos partes.

      - Madrid, Manuel Fernandez, 1745. 4to (220 x 150mm). pp. (48), 403, (5); pp. (8), 412, (16), with 1 large engraved folding map of the Orinoco and 2 engraved plates. Contemporary limp vellum, with contemporary manuscript title on spines (remains of ties). A very fine copy of the second enlarged edition. The first edition was published in 1741. José Gumilla (1686-1750), Spanish Jesuit, stayed for 30 years at the Orinoco missions and was the first to publish a comprehensive account on the Orinoco river, its people, tribes and natural history. "The work of father Gumilla is one of the most curious and interesting hitherto published upon the country of the Orinoco." (Sabin 29276). "He travelled widely on the Middle Orinoco and had ascended to Apure, Arauca and Meta rivers. and in 1741 published what was the first descriptive account of the Orinoco and its tributaries. In his book Gumilla spoke bitterly of the slave traders who invaded his country" (Howgego p. 464). The present work is based on Gumilla's personal observations as well as material he found in manuscripts left by fathers Mercado and Ribera. The beautiful engraved folding plate shows the Jesuit missions, towns and tribes along the Orinoco.Sabin 29275; Leclerc 1471. [Attributes: First Edition]

        CHARLES PRINCE Of WALES, &c. Regent of Scotland, England, France and Ireland, and the dominions thereunto belonging. Charles P.R. Whereas we are certainly informed. That the Elector of Hanover has taken upon him to summon a Parliament .

      [Edinburgh]: 1745 - Large headpiece [4.3 cm x 15 cm]. Large initial capital letter 'W'. Charles best known today as the instigator/leader of the unsuccessful Jacobite uprising of 1745, in his effort to restore an absolute monarchy to the United Kingdom, which culminated in defeat at the Battle of Culloden, essentially signaling the end of the Jacobite cause. This broadside, issued at the apex of the rebellion, highlights the extent of Charles' belief in his claim to the throne, for in it he declares the parliament at London to lack legitimacy; next, he brands traitor & rebel all who attend said parliament; and finally, he declares the "pretended union of these Kingdoms now at an End." A very rare survivor of this tumultous time of British history, this broadside is known in only 6 copies [per ESTC], none on this side of the pond. On an old mount, broadside previously folded and repaired with slight loss of a few letters, not affecting sense or legibility. A triangular section to the upper right blank margin lost & supplied [no text affected]. Some expected age-toning & soiling. A Good copy. Broadside, printed recto only. Complete printed text supplied on request. 30.3 cm x 22 cm. 1st printing (ESTC T30512). [Attributes: First Edition]

      Publish'd according to Act of Parliament, Decr. 9th, 1745., London, - Lead up to the Battle of Prestonpans Large engraved broadsheet map, fine original hand-colour, inset plan of the Battle of Prestonpans, text below. Rare broadsheet map of the southern Highlands, centred on the region between Inverness in the north and Edinburgh in the south, illustrating the marches and counter-marches of the Hanoverian and Jacobite armies leading up to the battle of Prestonpans when the Highland army won a crushing victory over the King's forces. The base map was drawn by Rutherford from the journal of a gentleman who worked on General Wade's military road-building between 1726 and 1737.We have only been able to trace two other examples of this map: the (damaged) example in the National Library of Scotland, and another, with modern colour, in a private collection in Kent.

        Compromisso da Misericordia de Lisboa.

      Lisbon, Na Offic. de Joseph da Silva da Natividade, 1745. - Large woodcut of the Virgin on title page within typographical border. Woodcut intitial. (2), 42 ll. Folio (29.4 x 21 cm.), contemporary crimson sheep (minor wear), flat spine richly gilt, outer dentelles richly gilt, marbled endleaves, green silk ribbon place marker, text-block edges sprinkled red. In fine to very fine condition. ---- The Santa Casa da Misericordia (Holy House of Mercy) is a uniquely Portuguese Catholic charitable institution, founded in 1498 by Queen Leonor and still existing today. Eventually practically every Portuguese city had its Santa Casa da Misericordia, and the institution spread overseas to Goa, Macau, Bahia, etc. The present statutes are a revealing glimpse into gender and class divisions in mid-eighteenth century Portugal. The Santa Casa's administrators (thirty to sixty Irmãos) tackled duties that would today be the province of lawyers, accountants, hospital administrators, prison chaplains and chaperones. For example: the Irmãos must meet stringent standards, including that neither they (nor their wives, if married) have Jewish or Moorish blood, that they have a good reputation, be at least 25 years of age, not be manual laborers, have enough money to live without a salary and not be tempted by the money they administer, and that they can read and write. Grounds for dismissal include telling secrets learned in the course of their duties or marrying an orphan girl from the Santa Casa without permission. There are special provisions for determining whether to accept bequests (ch. 28).Since it was routine for the Irmãos to receive cash via letters from India and elsewhere, in settlement of wills or as dowries or as payment of ransom (ff. 18v, 21r, etc.), the statutes provide stringent rules for how money is to be reported and handled. There are stipulations about providing ransoms for captives of the Turks or Moors (ch. 32).Several pages are devoted to the procedures for allowing girls and women to live under the supervision of the Casa. Wealthy orphan girls must be between ages 13 and 20 (?por este ser o tempo de mayor perigo?), must provide their own support, can bring only one maid and a companion under age 10. Married women are only allowed to live there with their husband?s consent. Visitors are strictly limited and supervised (ff. 21r-22v). Orphans who are not wealthy are permitted to apply for a dowry from the Misericordia?s funds (f. 30r).The Mordomo da Botica is given extensive guidelines for feeding, clothing, and treating the sick (ff. 24v-25v).One of the Casa da Misericordia?s functions was to make certain that every Christian received a proper burial. The statutes also include instructions for burial, according to class: the poor and the ordinary, the better quality, and the Irmãos themselves, for whom elaborate rituals and regalia are prescribed (ff. 35v-37r). The Misericordia also accompanied criminals condemned to death; again, elaborate rituals are prescribed (ff. 37r-38v).The @Compromisso is particularly interesting for the chapters on the "Procissão das Endoenças" (the procession of the sick) and the procession for All Saints' Day (November 1), which set out the order of the participants, their banners and dress. We have seen illustrations of such processions, but few descriptions such as this of who walks where, carrying what, and why.---- Innocêncio II, 95. Not in Welsh or @Greenlee Catalogue; cf.

[Memoirs of Maximilien de Bethune, Duke of Sully, Prime Minister of Henry the Great, arranged in order: with some remarks by M.L.D.L.D.L.] (Eight Volume Set)

      A Londres: Publisher not identified, 1745. Early. Leather Bound Leather Bound. Very Good. (Biography, Government & Law, Foreign Language) Memoires de Maximilien de Bethune, Duc de Sully, Principal Ministre de Henry le Grand, Mis en ordre: avec des Remarques par M.L.D.L.D.L. [Translation: Memoirs of Maximilien de Bethune, Duke of Sully, Prime Minister of Henry the Great, arranged in order: with some remarks by M.L.D.L.D.L.]. A Londres [Paris]: Publisher not identified, 1745. Eight volume set. Text in French. First Thus Edition. Sullyâ&#128;&#153;s Memoirsâ&#128;&#148;also known as Ã&#137;conomies royalesâ&#128;&#148;was initially published in 1638. The text was arranged and presented in a new order and rewritten in modern French in 1745. Decimo-sexto, 6.75 x 4 inches. Contemporary calf leather binding with elaborate gilt tooling on spine and board edges. Each spine has red-leather labels and five raised hubs. Marbled endpapers. Red edge-stain to gutters. Title pages in red and black. Volume I, 416 pages. Volume II, 556 pages. Volume III, 563 pages. Volume IV, 449 pages. Volume V, 480 pages. Volume VI, 472 pages. Volume VII, 481 pages. Volume VIII, 377 pages. Frontispiece engraving of Maximilien de Bethune and second engraving of Henry IV in Volume I, both by E. Fessard. Minor toning or foxing to pages. Slight rubbing to boards with occasional scuffs. Spine show light wear, mainly to joints. Larger scuffs to front joint of Volume I. Edge wear with some bumping to corners and heads of spines. Very Good condition overall. <br><br> Maximilien de Bethune, duke de Sully, also called Marquis De Rosny [1560â&#128;&#148;1641], was a French statesman who, as the trusted minister of King Henry IV, substantially contributed to the rehabilitation of France after the Wars of Religion [1562â&#128;&#147;98]. <br><br> Maximilien was brought up as a Huguenot and was sent at an early age to the court of Henry of Navarre [later Henry IV of France]. Taken by Henry to Paris in 1572, he barely escaped death during the massacre of Protestants on St. Bartholomewâ&#128;&#153;s Day. During the civil wars Maximilien served Henry both in battle and as a special agent. He helped to arrange Henryâ&#128;&#153;s marriage to Marie de Médicis and to negotiate the Peace of Savoy. In 1603 he served as ambassador extraordinary to King James I of England. Although for political reasons he urged Henry to become a Roman Catholic, he refused to change his own religion. <br><br> The political role of the Duke de Sully practically came to an end with the assassination of Henry IV in 1610. Though Marie de Medicis, as regent for Louis XIII, at first retained him in her council, his colleagues were restive under his domineering leadership, and in January 1611 the queen accepted his resignation. He spent the rest of his life in retirement, writing his memoirs. <br><br> Sullyâ&#128;&#153;s Memoirs are very valuable for the history of the time and as an autobiography, in spite of the fact that they contain many fictions, such as a mission undertaken by Sully to Queen Elizabeth I of England in 1601. These memoirs are remarkable for their often-reprinted account of the â&#128;&#156;Great Designâ&#128;&#157;â&#128;&#148;which Sully attributes to Henry IVâ&#128;&#148;a European confederation, or â&#128;&#156;Christian republic,â&#128;&#157; to be established after the defeat of Austria and Spain. The famous &#39;Grand Design&#39; is often cited as one of the first grand plans and ancestors for the European Union. <br><br> Extra shipping may be necessary due to weight of this set. Must ship Priority for international orders.

Joints with slight wear, minor worming to top two spine compartments, covers with a bit of worming and a few marks, almost invisible repair to inner upper marginal corner of final plate and following blank, otherwise AN ESPECIALLY FINE COPY, THE TEXT EXCEPTIONALLY FRESH, BRIGHT, AND CLEAN. This is a remarkably fresh and clean contemporary copy of one of the finest illustrated books of the 18th century. It is a wonderful oversized illustrated Venetian printing of a great Italian classic, which the normally reserved Graesse describes as a "magnificent edition in regards to the printing and the paper: the 20 plates and the headpieces by Piazzetta are beyond all praise." The engravings are highly detailed, romantic rococo illustrations of a major artist, Giambatista Piazzetta (1682-1754). Palluchini (as reported by Benezit) comments on the "subtle unity and vibrant luminosity" of Piazzetta's chiaroscuro, and he remarks that "Piazzetta's striking use of light, together with the bold compositions and handling seen in some of his works, make him an important precursor of Tiepolo." As for the author, Britannica says it as well as anyone: in his "Jerusalem Delivered," Tasso (1544-95) "aimed at ennobling the Italian epic style by preserving strict unity of plot and heightening poetic diction. He chose Virgil for his model, took the first crusade for [his] subject, [and] infused the fervor of religion into his conception of the hero Godfrey." But his inclination toward romance clashed with his original epical intentions, and the work became a classic early example of the poetry of sentiment. "This sentiment, refined, noble, natural, steeped in melancholy, exquisitely graceful, pathetically touching, breathes throughout the episodes of the 'Gerusalemme,' finds metrical expression in the languishing cadence of its mellifluous verse, and sustains the ideal life of those seductive heroines whose names were familiar as household words to all Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries." Unfortunately, the work, while still in manuscript, was condemned by contemporary critics on both religious and literary grounds, and the sensitive and conscientious author suffered a nervous breakdown, was later visited by a violent insanity, and was confined for seven years. When he was released, he discovered that his masterpiece had been published and that he was now famous. He was to have received the laurel crown with which Petrarch alone had been honored, but he died just before the presentation. Our copy comes from the collection of Starhemberg princes of Eferding, the best known of whom was Prince Ernst Rüdiger von Starhemberg, who as vice chancellor of Austria in the 1930s made a stand against the German takeover. The prince is featured in the historical novel, "The Sceptre," by Dorothy Jane Mills. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Principes de la philosophie morale

      Principes de la philosophie moralDIDEROT, Denis. Principes de la philosophie morale ou essai de M. S...sur le mÃ?rite et la vertu. Avec rÃ?flexions. Amsterdam: chez Zacherie Chatelain, 1745.First edition. xxx, 297, [1, blank], [10, tables des matiÃ?res, errata] pp. With title-vignette, two engraved frontispieces (one for each part), and two head-pieces by Fessard after Durand.Citron morocco, gilt back with raised bands, gilt triple-rule border on sides with gilt stamped floral ornament in corners, inner gilt-dentelles, all edges gilt. Lower cover slightly discolored, otherwise a beautiful copy. Housed in a custom brown cloth clamshell.\"Rather a paraphrase than a translation of Lord Shaftesbury\'s An Inquiry Concerning Virtue and Merit. Yet it is a very important work, indeed, for the growth and development of his thought. It was Diderot who furnished the RÃ?flexions in a preliminary discours and lengthy footnotes to which students of Diderot now turn for precious indications of the unfolding of his ideas...It will be noticed that the French version is anonymous, neither Shaftesbury\'s name nor that of the translator was mentioned. The reason was that there was some danger involved in presenting to the French public a work that declared so boldly for the existence of a natural morality independant of any particular religion or church\" (Arthur M. Wilson, Diderot, p. 50).Tchemerzine-Scheler, II, p. 916. Thomas, A checklist of major French authors in Oxford libraries, 1526-1800, p. 47.HBS 66927.$5,000

        Maria Anna, Archiducissa Austriæ, Nata Ao. 1718 d. 14 Sept. Caroli Principis Lotharing. Conjux. desponsata Ao. 1744. d. 7. Januari

      Published by Martin Engelbrecht, Augsburg 1745 - Engraving with thick early colour with gold highlights. Printed on laid paper. In excellent condition with the exception of some minor foxing in the margins. Image size: 10 1/8 x 7 1/8 inches. A lovely portrait, with stunning early colour, of Maria Anna, Archduchess of Austria, by the celebrated Augsburg engraver Martin Engelbrecht. Maria Anna (1718-1746) was Maria Theresa's younger sister. In 1744, she married Charles Alexander of Lorraine, brother of Francis Stephen, Maria Theresa's husband and, nominally, Emperor. She died in 1746 in childbirth. Martin Engelbrecht was one of the most prolific engravers and printsellers in Augsburg at the close of the 17th century. Along with his brother Christian, Martin dominated the print trade, producing some of the finest prints of his day. His outstanding portraits and landscape studies are beyond compare and his religious and allegorical engravings display a technical aptitude superior to many of his contemporaries. Martin had great success with his optical prints, which were used in perspective boxes. He is best remembered for his equestrian portraits depicting European nobility, and his engravings of Queen Elizabeth and Joseph II are numbered amongst his best work. This stunning portrait of Maria Anna is a rare example with vibrant early colour and is a wonderful example of Engelbrecht's superior work.
