        A Voyage round the World in the Years MCXL, I, II, III, IV

      John and Paul Knapton, London 1748 - Place: London Description: [24]+548 pages. Octavo (8 1/4" x 5 1/2"). Bound in leather. Three folding engraved maps present, southern part of South America; part of the Pacific Ocean and the track of the Centurion round the world. Compiled from papers and other materials of the Right Honourable George Lord Anson, and published under his direction, by Richard Walter, M.A. Chaplain of his Majesty's Ship the Centurion, in that expedition. (Hill I, pp 317-138). Third edition. "This is the official account of Anson's voyage. England, at war with Spain in 1739, equipped eight ships under the command of George Anson to harass the Spaniards on the western coast of South America, for the purpose of cutting off Spanish supplies of wealth from the Pacific area. Lord Anson, who was a friend and patron of Benjamin Robins, after returning from the voyage around the world in the Centurion, appears to have entrusted to Robins, for revision, the account of the voyage which had been compiled from the journals by his chaplain, Richard Walter. It is probable that Robins revised and edited the work, wrote an introduction, and added dissertations." (Hill). Perhaps the most popular account of maritime adventure of the eighteenth century. Anson's account of harrying the Spanish of South America, and the taking of the Manilla galleon with treasure with a contemporary value of $800,000, and his circumnavigation has long enjoyed a distinguished place as a masterpice in descriptive travel. Condition: Some small closed tears at the edges of the maps. Rebound in tooled leather with raised bands. Over all a very good to fine copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Relacion del funeral entierro, y exequias de el Illmo. Sr. Dr. D. Manuel Rubio y Salinas, Arzobispo que fuè de esta Santa Iglesia Metropolitana de Mexico.

      From January 1748 until his death in early July 1765 Manuel Rubio y Salinas served as archbishop of Mexico City, a period that coincided nicely with the rebirth of the Mexican mining industry and the creation of great wealth, new secular and ecclesiastical establishments, and a building boom in the viceregal capital. Rubio and the Church benefitted from the new wealth in significant material ways, but social justice concerns and religious duties were always high on the bishop's list of things requiring his attention, as demonstrated for example in => his leadership in securing the 1754 papal declaration making Our Lady of Guadalupe the patron saint of New Spain. When Rubio died, the entire viceregal capital turned its energy to commemorating him, much of which is summarized in this volume. It includes a Spanish-language account of the archbishop's last days, his death, and burial (pp. 1-87), followed by Pedro Jose Rodriquez de Arizpe's Latin-language funeral oration ("Maximum occidentis sidus. Ilmus, nempe d. doct. Emmanuel Josephus Rubio, et Salinas . . . In cujus solemni funere quinto idus octobris ann. MDCCLXV, declamabat p. doct. Petrus Josephus Rodriguez, et Arizpe," pp. 87-112), and ending with Cayetano Antonio de Torres's Spanish-language funeral sermon (pp. 115-51).The Spanish-language account of the burial includes a detailed description of the funeral monument (i.e., cenotaph) that the city erected for the archbishop, including the inscriptions and epigrams that were by F.J. Alegre. Following the last page of the text, there is => a large folding engraved plate by Manuel Villavicencio after the design of the monument by Miguel Cabrera, "pintor americano." The engraving is detailed, exquisite, and includes a measure of scale. => A good source for the study of Mexican colonial architecture, commemorative ceremonies, and treatment of and thinking about death.

The colouring is bright and splendid; the fine plates were drawn and engraved by the author himself, who was a miniature-painter, engraver and art-dealer at Nürnberg."Im Mai 1748 hielt er sich zur Kur in Karlsbad auf und begann kurz nach seiner Rückkehr mit dem osteologischen Tierwerk 'Angenehmer und nützlicher Zeitvertreib.' zu dem Georg Leonard Huth der Text verfasste.

      Pp. xiv, 704, 701-766. With one large folding map and 9 engraved plates. The map is narrowly cut and one tear nicely restored on verso with slight loss. One plate restored at outer margin with minor loss of picture. Occasionally some marginal staining. Half calf, spine with four raised bands, decorated and lettered in gilt. Old ownership signatures on title. First edition.Anders Sparrman (1748-1820), the youngest of Linné's apostles was only 17 years old when he served as a surgeon on a Swedish East India ship headed for China. A few years later in 1771 he travelled to the Cape where he stayed for seven months. He was encouraged and supported to undertake excursions into the interior of the country to study the flora and fauna. In 1772 he joined the English explorative expedition around the world under Captain Cook (second voyage) as assistant to the naturalists Johann R. and Georg Forster. This work deals with South Africa where he in 1772 spent five months at the Cape Colony, and in 1775 another eight months during which time he made several natural history expeditions into the Hottentot and Kaffir countries. His account became a classic, and one of the basic sources to our knowledge of the Cape Colony at the end of the 18th century. Includes a resumé of the voyage with James Cook (pp. 86-108), and a short vocabulary of the Hottentot language. The plates depict animals, weapons and utensils. Several years later Sparrman published two more parts (in 1802 and 1818 respectively) which were devoted to Cook's second voyage. Mendelssohn ii, pp. 414. A South African Bibliography, iv, pp. 360-1.

This scarce first edition of what is arguably Hume's magnum opus, one of the greatest classics of philosophy, was published under the title "Philosophical Essays concerning Human Understanding" and did not receive the title under which it is known today, namely "Enquiry concerning Human Understanding" (also known simply as the great "Enquiry") until 1758, when it appeared under that title in the edition of the Essays & Treatises. In 1739-40, Hume had published his first book, "A Treatise on Human Nature", which was very poorly received indeed and, according to Hume himself, a complete failure. "In a striking (and subsequently famous) passage, it concluded that Scepticism (of some form) is the only credible philosophical outlook. These striking and unsettling views were not, however, answered with philosophical replies; instead, they were attacked for their (real or imagined) dangerous consequences for religion. The only notable review had been simply dismissive, devoting more space to the author's errors of literary style than to the content. Admittedly, the young author could take comfort in one undoubtedly positive outcome, the recent success of his "Essays Moral and Political (1741-42). Even that, however, must have paled in the face of the discovery that the "Treatise" threatened to PREVENT an academic career - when his application for the Chair of Moral Philosophy at Edinburg Univeristy was blocked because of the work's supposed moral and religious implications.It was in these discouraging circumstances that Hume worked on the "Philosophical Essays on Human Understanding", now known as "An Enquiry concerning Human Understanding". The first "Enquiry" (as it is now commonly called) removed some of the more complicated and less persuasive arguments, such as those concerning the origins of the everyday ideas of the external world and the self, and shortened the arguments concerning the origins of our ideas in perceptions and of our knowledge of causes. It also carried over arguments for the compatibility of human freedom and determinism and for the similarity between animal and human ways of learning from experience. Most strikingly, it included two new sections critical of religion, and the completely rewritten account of Scepticism implied by the author's philosophy, and concluded with a somewhat ambiguous, but plainly hostile, attack on Religion. This makes it plain that, in contrast to the "Treatise" (at least, as it was published), the "Enquiry" aims to show that Hume's empiricist and Sceptical philosophy is bad news for religion. (The ambiguity is over whether this should mean all religion or only some forms.) Nevertheless, despite this more polemical edge to the "Enquiry", it is not uncommonly treated as a popular, even a watered-down, rewriting of some of the themes from the "Treatise". This mistake stems from failing to understand both Hume's conclusions and his purposes..." (Cambridge Texts in the History of Philosophy: Hume, "An Enquiry concerning Human Understanding", etd. By Stephen Buckle, pp. X-XI)."Now one of the most widely read works in philosophy, David Hume's "An Enquiry concerning Human Understanding" (1748) introduced his philosophy to a broad educated readership. In it he gives an elegant an accessible presentation of strikingly original and challenging views about the limited powers of human understanding, the attractions of skepticism, the compatibility of free will and determinism, and weaknesses in the foundations of religion. (Oxford philosophical texts). Jessop p. 19 ("PHILOSOPHICAL ESSYS (Enquiry concerning human understanding)... Hume gave these essays to the public against the advise of Hy. Home, declaring his "indifference about all the consequences that may follow" (Greig, p. 111). The Eassays on Miracles had been written by Dec. 1737, originally for inclusion in the Treatise. These essays were intended to replace bk. I of the Treatise. Their title was changed to "enquiry concerning human understanding" in the 1758 ed. of the Essays & Tr.; Hume's advert did not appear until the 1777 ed. of the latter.")

Afm. 54 x 65 cm.Op 10 mei 1748 werd de vesting Maastricht na een belegering van ongeveer een maand ingenomen door Franse troepen onder maarschalk Maurits van Saksen. Die belegering van Maastricht was het laatste belangrijke wapenfeit uit de Oostenrijkse Successieoorlog (1740-1748). Terwijl het Franse leger en het garnizoen van Maastricht in de maand april een strijd op leven en dood voerden, liepen op nog geen veertig kilometer afstand in Aken de vredesonderhandelingen ten einde. In de voorlopige vrede van 30 april werd al vastgelegd dat alle in de oorlog veroverde gebieden aan de rechtmatige eigenaars zouden worden teruggegeven. De Franse legerleiding wist dus dat de zojuist ingenomen stad weer aan de Republiek der Verenigde Nederlanden zou moeten worden overgedragen. Toch duurde het nog tot 3 februari 1749 voordat de laatste Franse soldaat de stad verliet en er weer een Staats garnizoen kon binnen trekken.Prijs: € 1.350,-.

Il était précepteur dans une famille lorsque vivement préoccupé des questions théologiques dont les solutions ne lui paraissaient point satisfaisantes, il se mit en relation pour sortir du doute absolu dans lequel il était tombé avec les principaux théologiens de son pays, de la Hollande et de la France. FENELON, dont il devint l'ami, parvint à lui faire partager ses doctrines et RAMSAY se convertit au Catholicisme. Fixé dès lors en France, il y devint Précepteur du Duc de CHATEAU - THIERRY et du Prince de TURENNE. Plus tard (1724), il alla à ROME remplir les mêmes fonctions auprès du fils de JACQUES III. Puis, de retour en Ecosse, passa quelques années chez le Duc d'ARGYLE et fût reçu Docteur d'Oxford en 1730 malgré sa qualité de Catholique Romain. Il contribua largement à propager la Franc - maçonnerie dont il était un des grands dignitaires. Son célèbre discours prononcé en 1737 à la Loge Saint - Jean de Paris fit de lui l'un des personnages les plus célèbres de la Franc - maçonnerie (Larousse XIXeme). Ce discours fut également soupconné d'avoir été à la source de la théorie des origines templière de la Franc - Maçonnerie.
